LEVIN: [T]he greatest threat we face in this country, and I mean it, is the Democratic Party and its radicalism, its war on constitutionalism, on national sovereignty, on capitalism, on our classrooms, on parents, free speech, freedom of association. It is almost an alien party, if you will, with its ideological drift and its embrace of American Marxism.

But there is another grave threat we face in this country because of its association and attachment to the Democratic Party, and I hate to say this, is somebody who spent part of his career and who had a wonderful time at the Department of Justice as chief of staff to Attorney General Meese.

We have to fear Federal law enforcement, in specific, the United States Department of Justice, and the FBI, which is a piece of the Department of Justice.

First, I want to make a recommendation to you, each and every American, that each of you file a Freedom of Information Act request with the Department of Justice, and FBI, for any information the government might be keeping on you.

With all of these stories of Big Tech and the FBI working together, and these massive databases now and the monitoring that is taking place, you may not believe it, because many of you, most of you are patriots, but you may have a file, ask for it.

Now, what they’ll try and do is charge you a fortune, and so I’m asking the Republicans in the House, at least to start the process of exempting any fees and any costs whatsoever of any citizen who seeks through the Freedom of Information Act any information that the Federal government might be keeping on them.

Now, that’ll keep them busy a while, but it will also teach them a lesson: Don’t just gather information on law-abiding citizens, but you should find out what they have on you.

What else should the Republicans in Congress do, whether they be in the minority in the Senate, or the majority in the House, and I’m quite serious about this, again, as somebody who worked at that department, they should slash the Department of Justice’s budget by 20 percent. It’s gotten too big, too fast — and it is not doing its job.

The Communist Chinese are running away with our technology, our nuclear secrets, maybe it’s too busy focusing on us, you and me, and those funds should be immediately transferred to the Border Patrol and ICE to secure that border, to keep foreigners out of this country who we don’t know anything about, to remove people who are here illegally and to protect us from fentanyl and the drug cartels.

The FBI won’t do it, the Border Patrol and ICE will.

In my view, the FBI needs to be reorganized with a close look at its various missions, its history of civil liberties violations goes back decades and decades, and right now, it is taking place as well. The FBI should be prohibited from investigating electoral challenges. This is very important, just like they’re doing now, concocting laws, taking laws that are a hundred years old, obstructing the peaceful transfer of power.

They’re investigating Republican State Legislatures, Republican State Legislators, they’re taking the cell phones away from Republican Members of Congress. They’re violating attorney-client privilege of only certain attorneys who are targeted.

We cannot allow an FBI and the Department of Justice that is politicized on behalf of the Democratic Party to be getting involved in challenges to elections. Elections can be very ugly. Challenges can be very ugly, but it is a purely political process. And in the end, Congress makes the final determination over electors, not grand juries controlled by Democrats.

This needs to be an area where the FBI, the Department of Justice, US Attorneys simply cannot go. The Attorney General should be subjected to removal by a no confidence vote of Congress. It is too difficult to impeach an Attorney General and remove him from office. He is not in the Constitution. This is a position created by Congress, 1789, George Washington had the first Attorney General, the Department of Justice itself, the institution wasn’t created until 1870 under the proposal of Ulysses S. Grant. We need to make modifications to it.

An Attorney General is enormously powerful. He is unelected. You can see what this Attorney General, Merrick Garland has done with that power, so there ought to be the ability for Congress that has the final say on how this government is set up. And the first say, to have a no confidence vote, perhaps a majority vote to remove an Attorney General.

There should be term limits for Federal Judges. Now, some of you may oppose that, I don’t. It’s something I wrote about in my first book, “Men in Black” for the Supreme Court. I have now concluded it needs to be across the board for Federal Judges, maybe it’s 12 years, maybe it’s 14 years, but it needs to happen.

Now, we need to amend the Constitution to do that either through Convention of States, or at least the Republicans in the House should begin pushing, pushing, pushing, persuading the American people over a period of time that this needs to be done.

You know, over in Israel, they are completely reforming their judicial and legal system. Of course, the oligarchs to the left are going nuts and attacking them. Too bad.... (Read more)
