with so much respect for one another. the world could learn a let from y'all's two models, thank you for joining us. thank you for spending part of your sunday with us, have a great week ahead, good night from south carolina, "life, liberty and levin" is next. ♪ ♪ mark: hello america i am mark levin this is "life, liberty and levin." our first episode in 2022. from our florida studio. everything is hopeful that new year will have new things, it will be a better year, a freer year, happier year. i'm here to tell you unless we stop democrat party and
america marxist movement. only change will be change worse not better. look at this january 6 event. look how the washington establishment. media, democrat party, democrats in congress, academia and all joined the same organizations same people that pushed russia collusion, the same people that rushed impeachment and coops and trying to delegitimize the former president, president trump, trying to destroy his presidency. now they tell us that january 6 is the greatest threat. and was the greatest threat to america since civil war, that is a lie, greatest threat to america is democrat party whether slavery or segregation or jim crow or american marxism. they want to destroy our
electoral system, as i speak the border is wide open. that is greatest threat to young people not covid. they have destroyed nation's finances, they want to eliminate capitalist system and replace it is a socialist system and centralize government. whole focus of the revolution of declaration on on the bill of rights, the rights of the individual, whole focus on biden and democrats and media, is against the individual. if you have a different view point, you dare not mention it in the classroom today or on social media, you will be banned. you will be destroyed. that is the nature of totalitarian regimes not
americanism. greatest threat was not january 6, don't get me wrong, if you are violent, you should be prosecuted. if you attack cops, you should be prosecuted. so what happened to black lives matter and antifa and those rioters? why does attorney general of speak peak out about january 6. fbi applied more resources to january 6 than there other event? two billion dollar of damages, one city after the another destroyed. people killed, people maimed. oh, yes, yes, but it was mostly peaceful according to the press. joe biden could barely mumble a few words of don condemnation, kamala harris of donating to get people out on bail as quickly as possible. we believe in law and order, january 6 is a demonstration of what the democrats believe in, they believe in power.
power. whether it is voting rights, they talk about a nationalization of the voting system, they don't want to nationalize voting so more people could vote, they want to nationalize it so destroy the red states. and they want to add 4 democrat senators to the senate and they keep threatening supreme court with national justices and get rid of filibuster rule after 200 years of supporting it, because they want to ram through their agenda with a 50 vote majority, but 50 votes is not a majority, they want to rule over us. that is what democrat party is about, that is an insurrection, that is a insurrection. they are teachers unions, don't get me wrong, teacher union and democrat party are tied at the hip, they are using your
children as pawns to threaten us if we don't give them what they be, teacher union pushing critical race theory, marxist race theory on our kids brain wash them day in day out. 130 million to assist with covid pandemic. in chicago they won't go to school, maryland they won't go to school and other parts of blue state america, much of money to push critical race theory it is racism. it is segregation. this is the death nel of this country. you have liz cheney out there who have always hated trump, they are unhinged,
they were appointed by nancy pelosi for a reason, the worst kind of people adam schiff, benny thomson who used to hate the cops before elected to public office. ras kin, his father formed an organization in dc with ties to old soviet union, swalwell. god knows what swalwell surrendered to communist chinese since he has never been properly questioned. a committee represent this is sure backdoor effort to attack republicans and conservatives and president trump and his family, and to undermine all of his success, paid for by the american taxpayer, there is no representative on this committee from the republican party or any council from the committee representing republican
party, just because you have a committee of congress doing this they don't have unlimited power, we have separation of power. we have other rules in the constitution against general warrants, the king way back in man monarchy days, they had parliament. our founders decided that not what in a wanted, listen to liz cheney and others, they want donald trump indicted for dereliction of duty? what is in charge of the capitol building, the one person they will not subpoena. the one person who text messages e-mails and documents are protected and immune from this investigation. nancy pelosi. why didn'ta why
did nancy pelosi turn down the national guardsmen, what did she know and do? during hours following january 6. if you really' to know, what fact place took place. so congress can prevent it from happening again, you don't need to subpoena the people they are, you need to get information about the failures of security system that was in place in the capitol. person who was in charge was nancy pelosi. >> she objected, so didder in general friend so did milley, saying you can't uses insurgents fact to protect the white house, you can't do that. why else? why didn't she have more cops there. remember, what she said about portland police, when
president trump sent more federal law enforcement to portland, to protect the federal courthouse? she called them stormtroopers, so did number three democrat, james cliburn. a party a media, a obama-biden administration working with hillary clinton campaign and dnc, with mark align and perkins coy and a former russian citizen to put out a dosier to lie to fisa court to push russia collusion narrative. resulting in an impeachment in criminal investigation, resulting in repeated coop attempts, we have never seen like this, that is the insurrection. that is what took place. attempt to over throw president of the united states, first deny his election in 2016, they went
to another and challenged electoral croat votes, they challenged 2000 election saying. they said that 2004 election was ill legitimate. -- he would be president. we'll lectured by these people who are liars? who push russia collusion for years. they drag this country through the dirt. we'll be lectured by pages of "new york times"? their correspondent in moscow was a stalin flunky in 1932 and covered up slaughter of the ukrainians, and another leading in berlin covered up
the holocaust. and "new york times" sent a reporter to cuba who came back praising castro, i think a lot more damage has been done by the new york times this this country than what happen on january 6. >> sat in the house gallery, shot -- one was critically wounded. shot. 5 members of house of representatives. every single one of them was pardoned by jimmy carter. every one. 1971 weather underground. group that belonged to. close associates political allies of barack obama, they blew up a room in capital building, they went back to
1983 and gave it there are try, weather under ground set off a bomb at pentagon and state department. that is an insurrection. but they didn't call it abinsurrection, the people who breach the capitol they broke windows and doors, attacked officers they should be prosecuted. people on the capitol lawn or people who waved into the building, who didn't do anything, that is an example of an insurrection? he is the one who said, if you need the national guard i'm happy to provide them to you, dereliction of duty? that is nancy pelosi, there is a massive cover-up to protect nancy pelosi, if you care about what happened to january 6, you should care to know what nancy pelosi knew. if you care about justice and bill of rights, you should wonder where hundreds
of americans who are not in the building some of whom are serving in jail right now, why they have been prosecuted for crimes like trespassing and parading on public property and how that is san insurrection. only person killed on that day was a protester, a veteran who served in united states air force. she did not have a weapon. she did not touch a soul. he walked into the building, she was climbing through a broken web doe and shot dead. when we return, a great gift on the program. governor of florida, ron desantis, we'll be right back. you inspired the new lexus es to be... well, more you. so thank you. we hope you like your work. get $1,500 lease cash toward a 2022 es 350. ♪♪ before nexium 24hr,

trey: welcome back america, we're here with our great guest, governor ron desantis how are you. >> good to see new florida, i like this southern outpost. >> we do too, it is snowing up there. it is 75 degrees. i'm not only one, a lot of people are moving to state of florida. but before we get to that. i would like to know about your wife. casey, we come to know her a very lovely person, how is
she doe going he. -- she doing. >> she is going through best breast cancer treatments, she is strong, it is a difficult process, some days are good, some days are bad. if anyone will beat it, she will beat it. beat. mark: you acompany he your receive for treatment. >> >> your wife for treatment, they tried to do a gotcha on me, i was with her all day in her treatments, something i have gone to all of them with her. it is what i need to do as a
supportive spouse, it is not easy for her to go through it or a spouse to watch that, they are putting poison to your wife, the idea that was a vacation was offensive to a lot of people. mark: bigger picture there are a lot of governors, 50 last i checked. many republican governors. you are the focus. i suspect if you are you would not threaten left wing media, you have really terrible media here. this is me speaking. palm beach, is just i dids a -- disaster, orlando like the rest of the country, if you were a mediocre governor. >> if you are under the
target they don't come after you, i view it has positive feedback. if they are not attacking me i'm probably not doing my job, the fact they are attacking me is a good indication that i'm tackling the big issues going after critical race theory, and fighting back against biden mandate and illegal immigration, all thing that vast majority want to see done but that threatening the ruling class and the regime, what you stand up in this day and age we in you speak the truth those spoke folks don't want that to get out, they will throw arrows at you, we have been able to show if you stand your ground and lead and don't back down and stand for the right things, there is a groundswell of folks who will have your back, that is what it is about. mark: did you think an issue like a pandemic or vaccine or this antibody, did you
think it would be politicized way that washington has. you had to fight like hell to get citizens of this state monoclonal antibodies that you focused on heavily, as a footnote, i was in florida, my family was in florida, i got the johnson & johnson vaccine. i got the booster. i got the virus. and we looked up on internet, there was a center 20 miles away. where we could go to get the monoclonal antibody, you are supposed to get within 48 hours if. after first day of feeling lousy, i fell fine it works, you have them all over the state, you are only governor that has done this yet you are focus. saying that works let's withhold the monoi
monoclonal antibodies. >> it is awful and it works. as that was happening in september. federal government decide to seize control of the monoclonal antibody and cut supplies to florida and texas mainly. our numbers were so low there was not a lot of demand for months, now you see omicron and you we more prevalence in winter, we're anticipated a need for demand we're not getting what we need. you know hhs says florida you use too much, part we have embraced treatment, most of the other governors and people
fauci and federal leadership say, get a shot wear a mask, they never talk about treatment, we embrace treatment, that is reality of what we're facing, you were vaccinated, yet you still got it i wish vaccines are sterilizing but they are not providing that type of immunity. it shows show much is a political agenda about partnership not about the best interest of the american people when you talk about how the folks are acting. mark: i could be wrong. i must obsess, i don't obsess over joe biden's speeches, i can't even follow most of them, i den believe he ever mentioned monoclonal antibody add an op -- as an option, fauci almost never talks them and media does not, i don't think that most americans have heard of it, is this a grave disservice to american people.
>> you look back at how pandemic was handled there will be a whole host of cardinal sins, chief would be school closures, we have schools closed now in parts of nation, the extended lockdown, they were a disaster. not focusing on treatment from the very beginning was a huge mistake. fauci and people like him are to flame blame for in. once we get treatment on-line to ignore them and put all your eggs in one basket of a fundamental mistake biden mentions once, right before they cut our supply, he said we'll watch it up, then he cut off the supply, we have not seen the ramp up. i don't think that they will embrace it. i think they just have tunnel vision in terms of how they want to handle this, it has not worked.
he demagogued donald trump during the campaign saying that trump was to blame for code covid, even though china was to blame. he gets in now you see, cases like no one anticipated was possible that is his central promise of his campaign. up in smoke, they try to find scapegoats and trying to flight with florida or texas is one thing they do to divert attention from their failure. jim: mark: he admitted failure, saying that there nothing else that federal government can do, he said he should are ordered more tests. he comes to presidency with 3 vaccines therapeutics and tests. it is out of control.
when we come back, i want to ask you about school. you see what they are doing in chicago and maryland, they are shutting down the classrooms. we'll be right back. we have to be able to repair the enamel on a daily basis. with pronamel repair toothpaste, we can help actively repair enamel in its weakened state. it's innovative. my go to toothpaste is going to be pronamel repair.
those drops will probably pass right by me. xiidra works differently, targeting inflammation that can cause dry eye disease. what's that? xiidra? no! it can provide lasting relief. xiidra is the only fda-approved non-steroid eye drop specifically for the signs and symptoms of dry eye disease. one drop in each eye, twice a day. don't use if you're allergic to xiidra. common side effects include eye irritation, discomfort or blurred vision when applied to the eye, and unusual taste sensation. don't touch container tip to your eye or any surface. after using xiidra, wait fifteen minutes before reinserting contacts. got any room in your eye? be proactive about managing your symptoms by talking to your doctor about twice-daily xiidra. like i did. i prefer you didn't. xiidra. not today, dry eye. jon: welcome to fox news live, i am jon scott, a horrific fire strikes a
bronx apartment building in new york, killing 19 people that includes 9 children to broke out this morning. new york city fire commissioner said firefighter found victims on every floor. and were taking them out and cardiac and respiratory arrest, the cause of fire is under investigation, they believe a malfunctioning space heater sparked it. >> this just in, bob saget has been found in a hotel room in florida, he was 65 years ocean. i am jon scott. mark: welcome back america. governor desantis, your schools. are open. ure kids are going to
school, you had battles with some local school districts, you put the hammer down. you are focused on the education of the students and rights of parents, whether it comes to opening of schools or vaccine or critical race theory. explain your mind set with schooling. >> when covid first hit, important for me to determine what does it mean for our kids, after 5 or 6 week its of clear based on the data from europe, kids needed to be in school we made sure in 2020 school year we had all kids in person we gave parents an option. this was one of best decisions we made. we also signed in to law in 2021 a parent's bill of
rights, parents are in driver's seat when can it comes to health, and education and up bringing of their kids, you can't force a kid to wear a mask to school. we stood up for parents right on that. we have been battled on those, teachers union sued me to try to close the schools, we beat the unions on, that some school district fought us because they want to force mask the young kids we won those battles with parents, we also will do more, we did ban critical race theory in the k-12. mark: why. >> we're not spending taxpayer dollar to teach our kids to hate the country or each other, that is what it is this is political ideology and divisive and false history, you look at claiming american revolution was fought over slavery,
really? we have the pamphlets we have read them, they were talking about freedom, it much revisionist history to drive a political agenda, which is they want the kids to hate this country to reject our founding and replace it with their leftist ideology that would be disastrous for the country's future, the stakes are high. but there is a problem, when you can say it, you can't do it, what if they defy you, we'll give parents the ability to go in and bet legal relief -- get legal relief if they are not following our state standards with respect to history and government, empowering parents to be involved and making sure parents have a right to inspect curriculum it is not
just critical race theory theory it there is that will inappropriate content that can be smuggled in by public schools, this idea of parents don't have a right to be involved, that is what the left believes, they believe these schools are separated from the family. and really they have be able to mold the kids how they the bureaucrats and union want. we believe that it is the parents and families that are in the driver seat, we have empowered parents in florida we'll do more. mark: you raise an interesting point, empowered parents, the left here, when you see this building and central government. >> you want to empower parents, you want to empower citizens, because, people are flocking to your state.
to escape this kind of tyrannical activity that is going with mandates closing businesses getting people fired. many of blue states people feel hopeless and they have to leave their homes and they are coming to florida. do you think this is sort of a new political revolution? taking place in georgia that you are involve -- in florida you involved in. citizen participation, interesting to me when biden of criticizing you again, saying school districts should be able to make the decisions, i now the the school districts are creation of the state, they belong to the state. do you see nationwide a movement in many ways that had the birth here in the state of florida. >> i think we're the epicenter, does not limited, you have seen massive migration from the types of
states talk about, we know theft, new york, california, illinois. they have bad policies, high crime, problem with education. people who are seeking freedom are fleeing and coming to florida to texas and tennessee and others. but we have been the epicenter of this, and i think part is because we really been bold in saying that florida is a free state. and we were saying that when it was not popular, now the lockdown politicians, they are found in flood vacationing, they would lockdown their people, and then end up on the beach without a mask. we like people on the beach without masks. but, i mean come to that a hypocrisy of it. florida. we protect people's rights during covid, and we lead on education, not we have school choice -- we have more school choice in
florida. than anyone in the nation. we also have lead in getting civics back to high schools, we now have high school, a requirement again. again, we have a training program for teachers they get a $3,000 don't is if they go through a givics -- bonus if they go through a civics booted camp, and tests. do you understand what it means to be an american, i think when people see that, parents get excited, they are hopeless in other states, if you are under the thumb of a strong union in a school district, as a parent who is more freedom oriented you have to shot to affectiate change. the union hopes policy, lock, stock and barrel. mark: we'll be right back.

mark: welcome back. governor ron desantis. immigration. you know federal government has a responsibility in the constitution over immigration in particular congress. the democrat control congress. they are not doing a damn thing about it, they don't even have oversight hears, president of united states will not go to border to see his great works, i calculate about 2 million people have come in to country illegally. we don't know when they are, massive amounts of killer drugs, ms-13, on and on. you are a governor, at night they were dropping people off in your state. does federal government in ordernated with coordinated with you?
>> not a chance, that is why they do it in the middle of the night, one of the guys they grout no north -- they brought to northeast florida killed machine. to farm out people to communities, that imposing huge costs on the states, we have said we have sued biden, we have a case in federal court. i am asking money for legislature if we do get wind of the flights, we have not in flights in last couple of months, we anticipate they will try again, we have money that if they drop in jacksonville, say, i'll pay for buses, we'll send them is delaware and other places, they know that florida is not a good place, and we will impose restitution on companies bringing them in with federal government, contractors, bus companies we'll charge them per head a
restitution, when you bring someone in there is a whole host of cost that go with that, education, healthcare, social services someone criminal justice, and we'll say to companies, you can't do business with the state of florida or any local community if you are facilitating a massive smuggling operation, the people are from all over the world, most are not from mexico, the signal has gone out just get to southern border and you are home free to get into united states, don't apply, go through that way, that is what you are seeing, we had people there last summer,' hadding texas, we were happy to did that, but we ran into a problem if you captured someone coming illegaly without
drugs or, they would turn them over to feds they would bring them in this was not helping the cause. mark: i wonder how your office works. it seems you are always a step ahead. we have this issue with immigration, we'll hold people responsible financially when are participating, then critical race theory we'll get ahead of that. we'll get ahead. do you come up with these ideas? do you bounce them around with your staff or legal council? it seems to work very well. this is a question for next segment. it comes to mind, i think about these issues a lot, you seem to be singularly a
process, how does it work? >> i set the vision, i say, we have to tackle this. i have certain ideas, we have a lot of great people that work in governor office that are able to research what has been done in the past and legal, and then come up with a set options then execute. we read a lot are understand a lot, debate with your staff and advisers, you have to be willing to pull the trigger and lead, i don't take polls to figure out if it is popular or not, i have lived in my state my whole life, if you do well, they will follow. they will support what you do. that is pretty much how we did it. you right we try to stay a step ahead, be on offense, if you are just sitting
there, sometimes the problems mount. we try to get ahead and be forward thinking with what we're doing. mark: state, population is exploding. you have american citizens moving into the state. the economy is doing well. you don't have an income tax. how do you pull that off. >> a matter of state that are high tax, they deplete their revenue base because people are mobile they can move, capital moves, individuals move. in florida no income tax, lowest per capita tax burden that helps attract people and expand our economic base. we take in 4 to 500 million a month over whatever is projected. this is constant for over a year, we have over our budget that i put out 99 .7 billion, new york is 200 plus. no income tax we are
over 15 billion in surplus revenue. we are in very good fiscal shape. but it shows you if you want to have a virtuous cycle, you keep taxes low, create a good environment, i think increasingly not just taxes but strong on crime. we see how that is getting out of control, and having protecting people's freedom against covid mandates restriction that is all coalesced with a lot going on in the economy, people are purchasing homes left and right, a lot of revenue coming to treasure with low tax rates and no income tax. mark: talk about 50 states 50 experiments, is floridian example of constitutional conservatism that civil
society, protecting it through just laws works. where the more radical leftist agendas you see in new york and california, they don't work. if media were rational and sat back and looked would say they conservatism works. >> you look at net migration since covid, influx is going to red states, almost exclusively, texas, florida, tennessee. the exodus from the deep blue states, california, illinois, new york, new jersey, it is like clockwork. you see that over and over. i tell people, i love the people that we have in florida. we have a lot of great opportunity, i'm not begging for people to come into the state we're doing well. but people vote with their feet. and i think people are more sensitive than ever to the type of government they would live under and type of
policies. i think covid really crystallized that, you find yourself in some part of nation living under a governor who is issuing dictates, and denying your freedom and your livelihood, job, education potentially, they realize, how important it is to have a political culture and political leadership that respects and preserve freedom and their ability to live a good life. mark: our final comments when we return, we'll right back. >> woman: what's my safelite story? >> vo: my car is more than four wheels. it's my after-work decompression zone. so when my windshield broke... >> woman: what?! >> vo: ...i searched for someone who really knew my car. i found the experts at safelite autoglass. with their exclusive technology, they fixed my windshield...
then recalibrated the camera attached to my glass so my safety systems still work. who knew that was a thing?! >> woman: safelite has service i can trust. >> singers: ♪ safelite repair, safelite replace. ♪ people with moderate to severe psoriasis, are rethinking the choices they make like the splash they create the entrance they make, the surprises they initiate. otezla. it's a choice you can make. otezla is not a cream. it's a pill that treats plaque psoriasis differently. with otezla, 75% clearer skin is achievable. don't use if you're allergic to otezla. it may cause severe diarrhea, nausea, or vomiting. otezla is associated with an increased risk of depression. tell your doctor if you have a history of depression or suicidal thoughts or if these feelings develop. some people taking otezla reported weight loss. your doctor should monitor your weight and may stop treatment. upper respiratory tract infection and headache may occur. tell your doctor about your medicines, and if you're pregnant or planning to be. otezla. show more of you.
before discovering nexium 24hr to treat her frequent heartburn... and if you're pregnant or planning to be. claire could only imagine enjoying chocolate cake. now, she can have her cake and eat it too. nexium 24hr stops acid before it starts for all-day, all-night protection. can you imagine 24 hours without heartburn? mark: welcome back, what do you think about the future? >> we have difficult challenges, if you look at threats to freedom not just with federal government and biden administration. it is there too. but you have a corporate america now, that is embracing wokeness. all that ideology. and universities have gotten
way more left wing in last 20 years. then big tech, they are taking the authority to suffocate decent and foster a -- narrative. we don't have to discuss corporate media and how dishonest they have been. in you believe in core principles that made country break and traditional values, you are under assault from a wide range of institutions, now, it may be different from threats we faced when reagan was president. the rot in some culture i don't think was as severe as now. we have to get policy right at federal level, but you have to battle the -- institutions. >> are so right. if we know that we need to claw our way back that say positive thing. if we don't strengthen ourselves internally, then when it comes to country
like china and russia and others it makes it more difficult to unify and confront them. i want to thank you very much. and as a part time citizen in florida i want to doubling thank you. >> thank you. >> see you next time on "life, liberty and levin." and then was sent out to police about an unresponsive man in a hotel room. the orange county sheriff's office says there was no foul play or drug use. bob saget was love so no space on many with his rollout danny tanner in full house.
