  1. Constitutional expert and upcoming host of "Life, Liberty & Levin" Mark Levin spoke at the Conservative Political Action Conference on Saturday. Interviewed by his wife, Julie, Levin discussed the wave of activism and politics in the United States that is running counter to the Constitution and causing trouble for President Trump. "This is the greatest place on the face of the earth," he said of America. "I think there are still millions of Americans who love their country, love their freedoms, love their Constitution - and see it being eroded." Levin called for the largely younger activists at the Oxon Hill, Md. conference to continue their work. "We are at a precipice now," he said. "The cause is nothing less than saving this republic." Levin called Trump the first president since Ronald Reagan who acts in a conservative manner, and who has a gifted understanding of foreign affairs when it comes to Iran, North Korea and China. He said that Trump may not be a philosophical conservative like Reagan was, but that the former New York businessman deserves to be defended in the face of the increasing activism of the bureaucracy. "I don't care if you agree with this president on anything or not," Levin said. "It's our obligation to defend this man." Levin said the bureaucratic state and forces of progressivism are somewhat misreading the Constitution.

"Someone forgot to put the extra Article in for the bureaucracy," he said.
  2. The National Rifle Association defended itself in no uncertain terms Saturday after numerous companies sought to cut ties with the gun lobby following the nation's latest mass shooting. “Let it be absolutely clear,” the organization said in a statement. “The loss of a discount will neither scare nor distract one single NRA member from our mission to stand and defend the individual freedoms that have always made America the greatest nation in the world.” The statement came two days after Wayne LaPierre, the NRA’s executive vice president, delivered a fiery speech at the Conservative Political Action Conference (CPAC) in Maryland. Twitter Ads info and privacy The NRA, which represents about 5 million members, has faced public outcry following a mass shooting Feb. 14 in Parkland, Fla., that killed 17 people. That outcry has mostly taken the form of calls for gun control legislation and for boycotts of companies that partner with the NRA on discount offers and other consumer inducements. Video On Saturday, United and Delta Airlines joined the list of companies separating themselves from the gun group. Previous companies to do so include MetLife, Symantec and rental car companies Hertz, Budget, Avis and Enterprise. Those moves prompted Saturday's response from the NRA, which asserted that those corporations had “decided to punish NRA membership in a shameful display of political and civic cowardice.” The NRA's statement argued that other factors besides gun ownership were to blame for events like the Parkland massacre. “The law-abiding members of the NRA had nothing at all to do with the failure of that school’s security preparedness, the failure of America’s mental health system, the failure of the National Instant Check System or the cruel failures of both federal and local law enforcement,” its statement said.

However, the Washington Post reported that the NRA fought the Brady Handgun Violence Prevention Act, which mandated federal background checks on firearm purchasers, suing the federal government once the National Instant Criminal Background Check System (NICS) was up and running. The NRA had argued that the entire law, including the NICS provision, be struck down as unconstitutional, the report said.
