Trump is not the one holding federal employees hostage
On this episode of LevinTV, Mark Levin discussed House Speaker Nancy Pelosi and her comments blaming President Donald Trump for the hundreds of thousands of furloughed federal employees.
According to Pelosi, Trump is responsible for the government shutdown. Levin clearly and concisely explained the reason Pelosi "is out of touch with reality" on the issue.
Because the goal of the president is to secure the border, and because Article I of the Constitution requires all legislation to originate in the House of Representatives, the reality is that House Speaker Pelosi is holding federal workers hostage.
Historically, furloughed federal workers will receive back pay once the government goes back to work, and for that reason, Levin stated that he has a hard time feeling sorry for displaced federal workers.
"In the private sector, when you get displaced, when you get a pink slip, you don't get paid back. You're out, and you've got to find another job. So, we really have two types of citizens in this country — citizens who work for the government ... and citizens who don't," Levin said.
On Saturday, Duck Commander Phil Robertson sat down with "Economic War Room" host Kevin Freeman and discussed economics, faith, and our nation's Founding Fathers.
In this clip, Phil explained how money was the root of all kinds of evil, especially when a nation's electorate "goes bad."
"When the electorate goes bad and the evil one gains control of their life, they put in politicians who are just a reflection of the electorate," Phil said.
Phil noted the warnings from our Founding Fathers about the four things that happen when the electorate goes bad:
We lose our religion first
Then morality goes
Then virtue leaves
Then we lose our freedom
Later, Phil explained that he was a C+ student who set out to build the best duck call on the market. His goal, however, was not to become materially rich but to serve the people by supplying the best duck call on the market.
