Yesterday, January 21st,2015 , Mark Levin dropped a bombshell on his radio show audience, saying that word had reached him that a representative from one of the Republican campaigns for President was investigating him in an effort to shut him up. Next, Levin went ahead and spilled the beans about the theoretical dirt that might have been held over his head. It seems that Levin is engaged to a woman whose adult son works for the Cruz for President campaign. Levin stated his belief that this wasn’t anybody’s business and downplayed the insinuation that his fiancé’s son’s political affiliations have had an effect on Levin’s views, stressing that he didn’t care which campaign the young man worked for. However, even though Levin maintained his intellectual independence, he also openly admitted his own connection to the Junior Senator from Texas, in that Levin had “supported Ted Cruz for a long time” and had also encouraged the likes of “Sarah Palin” to support Cruz in his US Senate race a few years back. 1 Levin went on, vowing never to be silenced and also to disclose the identity of the campaign that was responsible, even offering a $5,000 reward for verifiable tips.
Lately on Levin’s show, Levin has been very critical of Presidential candidate Donald Trump, primarily concerning his Campaign’s personal attacks on Ted Cruz, going so far as to describe them as “Nixonian”. 2 If Levin’s allegations are true, considering the fact that the Don has lately been the popular talk show host’s person of negative interest, suspicion could fall on Trump. Certainly, Trump hasn’t been averse to using creative means to encourage the silence of others. Earlier this week, Trump made threats of legal action to reporters when he was confronted with his use of junk bonds to finance a deal that ultimately went south, and even though he previously repudiated their use. 3 Trump reportedly said in response to this line of inquiry, “If you write this one, I’m suing you.” 3 Nevertheless, it could be still another campaign that is unhappy with Levin’s recent positive coverage of Cruz, wanting for that to halt. In that case, Cruz’s immediate inferior, the Rubio campaign, coveting a number two slot in Iowa or in New Hampshire and desirous that a prominent talk show like Levin’s stop giving Cruz positive coverage, would be next in line after Trump to benefit should Cruz falter.
If it is indeed verified that the Trump campaign, rather than the Rubio campaign or one from the other candidates for President, has been engaged in a silencing campaign of one of his harshest critics in the media, that would certainly go a long way in supporting Levin’s allegation that the Trump Campaign is engaged in the politics of personal destruction in the mold of Richard Nixon, and it leaves one to wonder who else might be on Trump’s enemies list.
