NOW THIS IS SPEAKING TRUTH TO POWER: Mark Levin shreds Obama Presser and "Pretend Media"

Earlier today, attorney Mark Levin appeared on FOX News Channel's America Live with Megyn Kelly and offered a blunt assessment of President Obama's press conference.

I'm not into imperial presidents who act imperial and speak imperial and Obama forgets there's a Constitution. Yes, he keeps telling us he won reelection. Congratulations, but guess what?

The Constitution wasn't up for election, it's not up for a referendum or a plebiscite. He has to comply with it, too.

He was sent back to Washington, but he's got a strict list of rules that he has to follow as president.

When he gets up there and starts saying, if Congress doesn't do this, I'm going to do this unilaterally, it violates separation of power a lot of the times. And this is a man pushing the edge of the envelope as far as i'm concerned, whether it's the appointment clause, whether it's his unilateral action on immigration, whether it's trashing the commerce clause and the tax clauses under Obamacare.

Now they're talking about executive orders on the Second Amendment. They've issued regulations on First Amendment attacking religious liberty. This notion that he might be able to lift the debt ceiling, you know, unilaterally under the Fourteenth Amendment.

What the hell is this? He was elected president. Congratulations. This guy makes Richard Nixon look like a man who followed the law all the time. I think we have an imperial president, he sounds imperial, he's arrogant as hell and I'm furious about this and I'm going to tell you why.

We are a magnificent country. We don't need to be turned upside down. We don't need to run from crisis to crisis to crisis. He's bankrupting this country.

He said we've had a discussion about the debt. When did we have a discussion about the debt? We've had a debate about taxes. The man's never around to have a discussion about anything. So, yes, he causes me to be furious when I watch and listen to him.

Kelly also asked Levin about the gun debate and the debt ceiling discussion; what are "the big lies" that he so frequently speaks of and how is the media intertwined with the president's fabrications?

There are a lot of big lies with this president. First of all, I call [the mainstream media] the "pretend media". I mean, what do they do? When they talk about the 14th Amendment and the debt ceiling, do they say, "Mr. President, that's not the point of it, and that's never been done before, could you explain that being the constitutional genius that you are?"


Can we actually talk about the debt?

No. It's all Bush's fault.

And let's talk about guns. There's not a single idea being leaked out of this White House that would have prevented this horrific mass murder.

They're dusting off all their wants and demands like they always do. We have a Second Amendment. The Second Amendment matters. It's not up for grabs. It's not up to Biden, and Obama, and the goofball governor from Maryland and all the rest of them. And yet, you would think the Constitution is just some other statute that these guys can play with.

This is why I'm furious. Because once we lose the Constitution -- and we're losing it, big -- what's left? How do we keep these people in check?
