Mark Levin: Fear of Court Packing, Media Led to SCOTUS Ruling

“Mark Levin did not hold back when criticizing The Supreme Court and the “liberal media” on Tuesday evening on Westwood One.”

Conservative media personality Mark Levin did not hold back when criticizing The Supreme Court and the “liberal media” on The Mark Levin Show, Tuesday evening on Westwood One. Levin used his experience as a lawyer to criticize SCOTUS for their denial to hear the case from Republicans concerning supposed voting irregularities in the Commonwealth of Pennsylvania.

“You don’t have to be a legal scholar to figure out what is going on here,” Levin said. “They (SCOTUS) handed down their order just 40 minutes after the last brief was filed. That means they had already made up their minds.”

Levin said that the Justices predetermined the ruling out of fear, worrying if they make any ruling contrary to what Democrats want, President-Elect Joe Biden will pack the court.

“These Justices know full well that a Joe Biden presidency would pack the court and there is really nothing they can do to stop it. The Justices made this decision, not based on the law, but instead political ramifications. This is dangerous and will sow further chaos and division in this country.”

Levin added that some of that fear also stems from the repercussions of overturning election results.

“Liberal media and the columnists would have a hay day with this,” Levin said. “They (SCOTUS) know that any decision that goes against them (liberals) will be used against the Justices. So instead of standing up and putting an end to this chaos by doing the right thing, they made it worse.”

Levin then cautioned his fellow conservatives not to celebrate because Texas has sued other states over election results, which automatically compels SCOTUS to hear the case.

“What makes you think that the result will be a just one?” he asks. “They just had an opportunity. All they had to do was to tell states to follow Article II of the Constitution, but they didn’t do that. In the end, all the briefings, all the fillings are going to be meaningless. Why even have a briefing if you have already made up your mind? I hope I am wrong. They could rule differently in other cases, but I don’t think it will happen because they are scared to death of a lawless Democratic Party and the media.”

Aside from the decision itself, Levin also took exception to the manner in which it was handed down.

“The ruling was just one sentence,” Levin complained. “It simply stated that the request for an injunction was denied. That’s it. No reason as to why. At least tell us why you denied it instead of leaving it up to the bloggers and the legal analysts on the networks to tell us what they think your reasons were. But I guess they can’t say it was because they were hiding under the proverbial table in fear. There is no defense for the indefensible.”

Syndicated radio host and author Ben Shapiro suggested that an endorsement from former President Donald Trump is not the golden ticket it’s portrayed to be.

During his show on Wednesday, Shapiro said Trump may hold power over the Republican party but when it comes to local political races, there are other factors at play.

“So, there’s a difference between Donald Trump endorsing a person, which I don’t think has a lot of power. And Donald Trump is destroying people,” Shapiro said via Mediate.

“He (Trump) actually talked about how Brian Kemp was terrible and horrible and no good and very bad. And Brian Kemp won because he had earned the loyalty of the Republican voting base in Georgia, despite Trump’s anger at Brian Kemp.”

Shapiro concluded that “Trump does not have the sort of stranglehold the media thinks he has on the Republican Party.” 

Recently, Pennsylvania Senate candidate Dr. Mehmet Oz is one Trump-endorsed candidate that has backed away from the former president.

An Axios analysis of Oz’s social media and campaign website uncovered that the Republican candidate is no longer lauding his Trump endorsement ahead of the midterm elections this fall.

Longtime WIBC-FM news anchor Stan Lehr is calling it quits after nearly 30 years behind the microphone. The Indianapolis Star reports that Lehr’s last day will be July 1. 

WIBC is owned by Emmis Communications who last week announced a move to sell its Indianapolis radio properties to Maryland-based Radio One. Lehr’s retirement reportedly had nothing to do with the news of the impending sale. 

“This will bring to an end a long chapter in the station’s history,” WIBC News Director Chris Davis wrote in his email. “His reputation as a stickler has been widely-known in the industry for decades.” 

Davis described Lehr as a “stickler” who never wanted recognition for his work. 

“Instead, he made it clear to all who work or have worked with him that strong writing, accuracy, and excellence in delivery are the best ways to serve the listeners,” added Davis.
