Levin: Never-Trumpers Would Have Had Hillary Making These Court Picks

On his radio show this week, conservative superstar Mark Levin took the occasion of Justice Anthony Kennedy’s retirement to remind his listeners that, had it been left up to the legions of “NeverTrump” Republicans who dotted the landscape in 2016, we would have handed Hillary Clinton two Supreme Court nominees and ruined the nation’s highest court for a generation or more.

“You realize that if the Never-Trumpers had had their way,” Levin said Wednesday, “Hillary Clinton would be making these decisions today. We wouldn’t have Neil Gorsuch on the Supreme Court. Wouldn’t be discussing the possible constitutionalists that Donald Trump will nominate. The damage would be irreparable.”

Levin said it was important to remind the NeverTrump crowd of what they nearly did to the country.

“Some of them now pretend that they weren’t,” he said. “That in the general election, they pretend that they did in fact vote for Trump or they’re hushed about the fact that they didn’t vote for Trump. They should be called out for this, this is a big deal. And one of the things that Donald Trump, the would-be president, did is put this list together. And it still didn’t persuade the NeverTrumpers to support him for president. Pretty incredible.”

Levin was far from the only conservative pundit making the point. On his Fox News show, Sean Hannity said that Republicans who opposed the candidacy of Donald Trump should “admit how wrong” they were in light of the fact that Trump will now have a chance to truly change the course of the Supreme Court for years.

“I have a message for you, he said. “Hillary Clinton would now be making a second appointment in terms of the judicial courts of American history.”

Even that might be understating the case, because if Hillary had won, Ruth Bader Ginsberg would have likely felt confident retiring as well. Assuming that Kennedy would have made the same choice, that would have actually given Hillary THREE Supreme Court nominations…and that’s only if we count on the Court staying stable for the rest of Trump’s term. The lengths to which a liberal Supreme Court could destroy the institutions of law and order in this country cannot be overstated. We would no longer be tied – even tangentially – to the U.S. Constitution. We would be living under the fabled “living Constitution,” which is to say: Under the whims of liberal ideology. Utter disaster.

That’s what the NeverTrump Republicans tried to saddle us with. Levin is right – it should not be forgotten.

    • The real monsters in the D.C. Swamp are hiding in the Republican Party ; however, are naught but R.I.N.O.’s. McCain , the Hanoi “SONGBIRD, is a prime example.

  1. No one will admit not voting for Trump. Now they are acting like they did vote for him. I know a friend who is a DemocRat but now says he voted for Trump but wanted Bernie to win. I don’t know which would be worse, HELLery or BURNie.

  2. I grow tired of the “McConnell stole the supreme court for President Trump.” story line.

    I offer the OBVIOUS scenario.

    It was a GIVEN that hitlery would be elected AND NOBODY ELSE WAS ALLOWED to win.

    IF the seat was stolen, it was stolen because hitlery wanted it held for her!

    McConnell shows more love for her that the President!

    Her FIRST APPOINTMENT would have been Obama ans sailed through the Senate in less than a day with every democrat and RINO voting IN FAVOR.

  3. Believe it or not, GOD had a hand in getting Donald J. Trump elected as our President – and he has proven to be great for this country. America has been the only country that has held Christianity up as the backbone of our laws and beliefs – and the last beacon on the hill for the rest of the world. As the morals of America are slipping deeper into darkness God is still in control and it was His will for President Trump to win the election. The only reason God is interested is because of souls and President Trump, not a righteous man by any means, but a man with great love in his heart for America, is the best we had to choose from – thus keeping America safe from total destruction. This will not last however, America will fall because a One World Order will eventually happen under the rule of the anti-Christ.

  4. While I give him credit for changing his opinion, I remember Mark Levin was a Trump basher and never-Trumper too. I don’t remember when he started supporting Trump, was it before or after the election?

    The person I would like to ostracize is that smug little Bill Krystol of the Weekly Standard, still a never Trumper. I haven’t found any advertisers to boycott yet.

    Eric Ericksen, the founder of Red State, has a call in show on WSB radio in my area. Remember when he dis-invited Trump to their meeting? He remained a never-Trumper the entire time, and is borderline now. I have boycotted his advertisers since then, a mattress company and a mortgage company, and apparently other people are too. I heard the mattress company spokesman say in a commercial to Eric that “we don’t always agree politically but we respect your right to disagree”. Yeah, right, BS. You are feeling us aren’t you? I bought my mattress somewhere else and let them know.

    • I am glad to see another Georgia deplorable who supports Trump and the right direction he has our country going in now. President Trump may or may not be a man of faith but he truly does love America, unlike Hillary and the demoncrats who truly hate our country, wanting to see it totally destroyed as a free nation. Obama, Michelle, Maxine, Nancy, Schumer and that ilk should face defeat in the next election because of their hatred for America. Long live America! God bless America!

  5. IF Hillary had won, Soros and Obama would be in control, Hillary would have been their puppet, you and I would be “Comrades”, without Guns and Free speech. And that’s just the begining, after that we would all be poor, just like Venezuela, except of course the Politicians, they are the only ones who benefit from Socialism. The only way you can get rid of Socialism/Communism is WAR!

  6. As a interesting question, I wonder how the liberals would have reacted to sayning we “shouldn’t allow a President being investigated choose a Supreme Court Justice”, when Killary herself is under multiple investigations. Would this have ever been suggested if she where President? No. I also find it incredibly awesome that this supposed rule of law didn’t apply when President Trump nominated Justice Gorsuch. He was nominated and confirmed by the Senate. Even 11 Democrats voted for him. Hypocrisy at its finest.

  7. I find two things very interesting. 1. Would the Liberals have tried to prevent Killary from nominating a Justice as they claim about President Trump. Supposedly they claim a President under”investigation” shouldn’t be allowed to nominate a potential justice. My question; would they have brought up this alleged “regulation” when Killary herself would still be under investigation for several things. (E-mail, Benghazi, Uranium one)? 2. If this alleged rule of law existed, why didn’t it apply to Justice Gorsuchs nomination less than a year ago? A nomination that was voted on and comfort by a majority of Senators including 11(eleven) Democrats. More liberal HYPICRISCY at it’s finest. What applies to anything they oppose doesn’t apply to them.

  8. I guess that we can all thank God that Hillary didn’t get elected. Think about who she would have put on that court!

  9. Every human person ought to forgive the statists under the condition of Christian instruction on the history (learn if, folks) of how freedom and free markets have lifted poorer peoples into health and wealth while forced “sharing” of wealth has created poverty and death. Keep giving the illustration of Vwe ne zu e la, Vene zu e la, Vene zu ela, Vene zuela, Venezuela, NO TOILET PAPER (or food). Their little minds will (WILL) comprehend this IF and only if you do take this responsibility seriously. God Demands that you bring this message of freedom to all. God spoke to Samual and warned him of the consequences of having KINGS. The prophetic message was made manifest in a single generation. And yet, humans still worship idiots like KKKlinton(s). Speak God’s truth. If they still don’t listen, you will still have done God’s work.
