MARK LEVIN: Glenn Beck sent me a nice note the other day…
The Right Scoop ^ | August 5, 2013

Posted on 08/06/2013 2:33:34 AM PDT by SMGFan

Mark Levin said that he got a nice note from Glenn Beck the other day and called it an “absolute class act”. He went on to say: “I think it’s long over due that Glenn Beck and I do what we can in our own roles to help save the country and restore the Republic.”

I don’t know. Like Levin. Have problems with Beck but he’s helping far more than he’s hurting.

Levin had Rubio on last night I have been told.

I listen to everyone carefully although I trust Beck more than Levin.

I wish both well.....

I don’t trust either. They have given me no reason to believe it’s anything GOR America and not FOR ratings. Beck always hypes rather than drops any hammers and Levin kisses RINO ass regularly. Rubio being case in point.

You should know by now. The one sided feud began in 2010 over the direction of the conservative movement. Glenn was bashing progressive republicans and Mark Levin was focused on winning back the House. They just saw things differently. It took off after Glenn Beck’s CPAC speech. But it was mostly Mark Levin ranting about Glenn. Glenn never went after Levin, he didn’t care I gather. Glenn was more into attacking Alex Jones over the years.

That was Rubio? My attention was distracted so I didn’t get the name.

Rubio is still untrustworthy. Guess its hard for Levin to cut ties...

Mark believed that Beck ripped off some of HIS ideas for a book. It might be true OR they might have had some of the same ideas and Beck got his out there first.
Nobody sued anybody so I don’t rightly know which.

Actually, I think it’s somewhat about ratings, but more about selling books. I think some are good books, mind you. But that seems to be where the $$ are for them. Hype up the base on the air for 18 months until the next book comes out. It seems to be all about hitting best seller lists. IMHO.

I once imagined that their words would inspire 545 patriots to stand up and lead while we all stood up and tossed every single incumbent OUT of OUR houses. I thought more than half of them would wind up being ex military patriots like West. I’ve not seen more than one or two. Most loose. I must admit, my hopes have changed since the Won was re-immaculated by the dumbed down masses.

Really? From listening to Mark the feud began when Beck wasn’t attributing where his material came from and was also copying what Levin said on air.

Well when Beck’s The Blaze Network and Herring Broadcasting’s One America News get on more outlets and take on Fox News then it will be fun to see what people think and who they support. Glenn Beck is doing a tremendous job in growing his media empire. Politico even profiled him recently. Fred Lucas, Laurie Dhue and Sara Carter just joined The Blaze. Then he is expanding his radio network as well. But One America News has a fascinating program with Graham Ledger and another one with Rick Amato. Supposedly Dr. Gina Loudon is to get a show in the future and maybe Emily Miller will join. I don’t know because some of what they said in press releases has not come to pass yet. It is just the soft launch to get the station up and running.

Then it sounds to me like Levin was the guy in error—and he should have been the one writing Beck a note instead.

But Levin still hasn’t seen the light. He’s as bad as any ‘conservative’ who goes to Washington and then goes native, professing how those who have convinced him that they are his friends must be good conservatives themselves.

Never knew about that. But it is odd claim because Alex Jones said the same thing about Glenn Beck. That being that Glenn was stealing and repacking his ideas. Yet, Glenn took the time to bash Alex when he saw that Alex was not right on issues. I don’t recall Glenn ever going after Mark Levin.

Levin doesn’t kiss RINO ass regularly. Apparently, you’ve never heard him rip Boehner, McCain and Graham a new one. Mark will let anyone on his show - even those he disagrees with if they call in. Well, maybe not anyone, but Senators and Congressmen. He isn’t always Mr. Congeniality with them either.

I like both Beck and Levin, but we should trust but verify everything. They are both on the same side and we need all the soldiers we can get - regardless of their differing opinions on things.No one is perfect, but it seems that most Freepers demand such.

“Levin unquestionably defends his ‘friends’ like Rubio and Hatch.”

I guess you missed where Levin called out Rubio by name and said that he should not be elected again. He read his name in the list of those who voted for amnesty.

The exact moment I turned Levin off last night. No interest in hearing Rubio on any subject.

Haven’t heard him say that about reelection, and we’ll see as the time comes. But kid gloves and gentlemanly disagreement on amnesty—with all the explanations, excuses and apologies he’s offered over the last several months, and probably most of all, continued air time is a huge double standard for his ‘friend’.

The damage on Hatch is already done.

My attitude is that they all have important roles. Beck is great with the history of things and how they relate to today and Levin is great with the right now.

Limbaugh is never better than his sit down interviews with Van Sustren.

What ever happened to the blockbuster announcement Glenn was sitting on that involved someone with whistle-blower status?

Did I miss it?

Or was it tied up in the NSA revelations or Benghazi?

So Mark forgave Glenn

Yes others answered this, it is the gift we give ourselves, but IMHO something bigger is going on...

Mark's book comes out soon, and I wouldn't be surprised if Glenn got an advanced copy and rather than do a "me too book", he will promote it, especially after seeing it's brilliance.

My guess?

Glenn will have him on the Radio and / or the Blaze TV for an extended time-frame to discuss his upcoming book.

Glenn's not stupid and he wants to save the country as well, we need an answer to Fedzilla, and Mark's Constitutional Amendments coming from the States in his new book maybe it..

A big part of this too is that Levin thought Beck was outright lifting material from him. Its long overdue that these 2 made up.

That part of Mark’s makeup is changing and he is railing against republicans daily and naming names. He is moving in the RIGHT direction.

Glenn does have a bad habit of promising and not delivering on some things... no one is perfect and his good out weighs his bad. He needs to tighten up on those impossible promises however.

You must be joking.I. Guess. You don’t. Listen to Mark Levin’s radio show,because if you did you would have heared him go on the Warpath with the RNC and the RINO’s in the Party.

He basicly has told them both to put up or shut up.That they have been passing a bunch of symbolic bills against Obamacare.But when it comes to killing it the fold like a. Cheap suit.

I listen to both. Nobody agrees with everything anyone says and no one can be right about everything. I can see no downside to 2 prominent conservatives who believe in the Constitution to support each other rather than like Savage ridicule everyone other than himself. We have the media and the left for that.

No? Because it’s true?

Tell me exactly what great american patriot/founder did that in our history. Here’s a hint. If they had, there would BE no America today. So Levin has NO excuse. And neither does his fanclub.

Mark is the president of Landmark Legal Foundation, that does wonderful work fighting for the preservation of the Constitution and against the forces that want it destroyed. The man is up to his eyeballs fighting for you and me and conservatism... Don’t trust? You don’t know! Go do a little research, put yourself a ease.

Sure he does good occasionally. But on the most important issue of our time, he backed his buddy over his country. Thats the fact. He refused to call Rubio out. He let Rubio spew and spew.

Now if that’s a patriot or even an ‘average American’ we are in deep crap. Pissed? Damn right I am. Because you cannot deny what we all say and hundreds of threads bitched about. For all his tough talk, when the chips were down, who did he defend? Rubio. Who was most important? His friend Rubio. And the GOP rode it to the bank.

I know who he is. I also say him hand immigration to Obama on a platter. AGAIN...where was he to stop his ‘friend’? Making excuse after excuse for him. And I DGIF what foundation he runs or what else he does.

Rip Bhoner and let Rubio push the agenda. That used to be called bait and switch before conservatives started getting starstruck.

I used to like Beck, never loved him. I never liked Levin.
In both cases the personality gets in the way of the message.
Still, it’s a great message and I hope more people get it.

“Beck always hypes rather than drops any hammers”


Boy that is right out of the Saul Alinsky play book.

I watched GB every night when he was on FOX and subscribed to his internet show.

Of course he has to hype as the rest of the media, and some here on FR love to ridicule him HOWEVER he has brought the hammer down many times: ACORN, Van Jones, Anita Dunn, Soros, Valerie Jarrett, Ovomit of course, many others...

From the time he had his show on FOX he brought to light the evil in our government way more than any other network.

It is no wonder Conservatives have such a hard time getting traction in American politics as too many of us eat our own if they don’t walk lockstep with EVERYTHING we believe.
