Jennifer Granholm’s swipe at Mark Levin isn’t about his ideology, but hers.
Mark Levin linked to a story in the Atlantic about what former Governor of Michigan, Jennifer Granholm, reads on a daily basis. She cited a number of progressive and liberal columnists, as well as liberal journalists and news outlets. But, she also had to tell all of us how she hates Rush and Mark Levin.
“If I had to name people I don’t like, I’d say Rush Limbaugh or Mark Levin. It’s that breed of real toxic-spewers who are really damaging to our discourse. I’d be embarrassed to have my mom or dad listen to them. I don’t think they shouldn’t be on the radio but when the rhetoric inflames and exaggerates to the point of lacking integrity, that bothers me.”
Mark Levin reacted,
Aw Jennifer, the feeling is mutual… fb.me/1Iix5u6tF

I live in Michigan, and can talk for hours about how exactly Jennifer Granholm screwed over this beautiful State for many years to come. And, of course it is because of her leftist ideology that she obviously practices on a daily basis. The easiest way I can think of to persuade the reader that her ideology is the problem is simply to take what she said and translate it. Hey, we lived with her for eight years, Michiganders know her.
“If I had to name people I don’t like, I’d say Rush Limbaugh or Mark Levin.”
The easiest target is Rush Limbaugh. A heavy-set cuddly teddy bear of a guy who is wildly popular in America. She isn’t really targeting Rush though, she just used his name because it’s a house-hold name. Because he’s wildly popular…because America is conservative.
Granholm doesn’t like any conservatives especially Palin. See, Jennifer used to be a female Governor when Sarah Palin was getting all the attention. Stay with me here, I’m trying to help you understand how liberal women think. She went so far as to say that Palin was getting all the attention, not because her ideas are popular with the American people, or because her ideas are common sense, but because Palin is very pretty.
Don’t underestimate how the basic female “she’s prettier than me” lament is at play here. Granholm, always teased about her facial moles has had them removed for her new TV show on a channel no one has heard of. In the photo used for the Atlantic article, Granholm is shown mole-free in a blue shirt up against a brick wall.
A brick wall, just like the State of Michigan encountered in about 2009. That reminds me, I have remember to ask David Limbaugh if he would change his twitter pic.
Jennifer’s target is Mark Levin, and I think I know why.
When Granholm was swinging the axe on the last few sectors of growth in Michigan, Supreme Court Justice Stevens was announcing his retirement. Granholm was on the short list of replacements, but Obama nominated Elena Kagan instead. Kagan must be a genius or something, according to Granholm’s logic, because she’s nothing whatsoever to look at.
So Granholm was passed over and was named to Obama’s Economic Team, (I’m not making this up) and got a neat amount of money to teach at Berkeley. She was born in Canada, so she can’t be a VP nominee, but there are going to be openings on the Supreme Court in the next four years, and since there are no requirements save Senate confirmation for Supreme Court Justice, she may just end up on the short list again.
Since Mark Levin’s Landmark Legal Foundation has filed one of the key briefs in the Obamacare SCOTUS argument, Granholm mentions Mark Levin as a direct swipe at his “meddling” in the progressive takeover of the nation. Jennifer is if anything, a fantastic team player.
Now that Granholm is officially media, like Palin and Levin and Limbaugh, she feels empowered to chime in what she thinks about these people.
So can I, Jen:) Back to translating…
“It’s that breed of real toxic-spewers who are really damaging to our discourse. I’d be embarrassed to have my mom or dad listen to them.”
Notice she said “breed.” As if understanding of freedom and liberty and the enlightened foundation of this nation contitutes some sort of strange breed of people she cannot fathom. It doesn’t take deep thought to be a progressive/liberal, on the other hand, it takes an open mind and love of nature and humanity to be a constitutional conservative. If being a constitutional conservative is a vile “breed” that needs to be rubbed out of public discourse, what does that make Jennifer Granholm?
Notice she thinks she has the power to control what her parents listen to. Control is a tendency of progressives and liberals. She said she would be embarrassed to “have” her parents listen to constitutional conservatives. Are her parents still in Canada? Maybe they do listen, has she asked them?
Control and describing people who have a certain love of country as a “breed,” are some of the reasons Jennifer Granholm reads what she does and who she is ideologically. Socialists, progressivists, National Socialists, Communists, Marxists, Fascists, are all about control, concern for people’s thoughts, their individuality, and setting people against one another.
She is exactly what Mark Levin describes in Ameritopia as a “mastermind” who, in order to rule over people, would control freedoms and limit liberty. Her ideology is foreign to our nation, and thankfully, unpopular.

Mark Levin Gives Unvarnished Truth
MARK LEVIN: We conservatives, we do not accept bipartisanship in the pursuit of tyranny. Period. We will not negotiate the terms of our economic and political servitude. Period. We will not abandon our child to a dark and bleak future. We will not accept a fate that is alien to the legacy we inherited from every single future generation in this country. We will not accept social engineering by politicians and bureaucrats who treat us like lab rats, rather than self-sufficient human beings. There are those in this country who choose tyranny over liberty. They do not speak for us, 57 million of us who voted against this yesterday, and they do not get to dictate to us under our Constitution.
We are the alternative. We will resist. We're not going to surrender to this. We will not be passive, we will not be compliant in our demise. We're not good losers, you better believe we're sore losers! A good loser is a loser forever. Now I hear we're called 'purists.' Conservatives are called purists. The very people who keep nominating moderates, now call us purists the way the left calls us purists. Yeah, things like liberty, and property rights, individual sovereignty, and the Constitution, and capitalism. We're purists now. And we have to hear this crap from conservatives, or pseudo-conservatives, Republicans."It always amazes me the sheer number of women who defend abortion.

I Don’t Deny Global Warming ExistsI don't deny that global warming exists. It does not exist. There is not a pink elephant in my kitchen. I'm not denying it. It is not there. If I denied that there was a pink elephant in my kitchen, it would have to be there, but I would be lying to myself and everyone and walk around it to cook. But it is not there, therefore, I am not denying that it is.
Snyder said Wednesday that he unconditionally supports expanding the state's Medicaid rolls by roughly 470,000 people. There are 1.9 million people receiving benefits now.
"We're all here to support expanding Medicaid," Snyder said at a news conference called by a large coalition of groups that support the expansion. "We're moving forward with care for people who need it."
The ever-illogical argument that insuring more people will actually cost less. "But health care providers and advocates for the uninsured argue that the state will actually save money -- as much as $1 billion in the first decade -- if fewer residents have to rely on expensive emergency room facilities to address non-life-threatening illnesses and injuries."
Susan Dumass is really quite pedestrian. "The only thing standing in between 450,000 low-income Michiganders and health insurance is Tea Party Republicans' deep-seated hatred of Obamacare."
This week, Michigan’s Rick Snyder became the sixth GOP governor to propose expanding his state’s health insurance program to cover more low-income residents, in line with the Democratic administration’s strong recommendation.
Now that he's made the decision, Snyder must sell the plan to the state legislature, where some members of his own party have repeatedly attempted to distance themselves from the faintest whiff of "Obamacare."
- I can find neither solace or comfort in government. I cannot find hope nor light among those pretending to take my best interest to heart. I cannot worship or revere another human being because there are none alive that can instill my faith. Give me the One God; the One Who had created the heavens and earth and had purposefully breathed life into me. The One Who dwells in the secret place and watches over me and always keeps me company when all others abandoned me. But for Him I would have no purpose in this life; thank you Dear God.
