Trump Narrows the List of Supreme Court Finalists

People in the know say that prior to the inauguration on January 20, Trump will have decided whether or not to repeal and replace Obamacare. Additionally, his list for Supreme Court nominees will be finalized.

"I guess it's come down to the final four, and there's two of them that are really bad and two of them that are really good," Glenn said Thursday on radio.

So who made the list? Is it Ted Cruz? Perhaps Mike Lee? Learn more below.

Listen to this segment from The Glenn Beck Program:

GLENN: All right. Let's talk a little bit about Obamacare and what the future of Obamacare is.

PAT: They're making noise like they're actually going to repeal it and like that is going to be an agenda item on day one. They're actually talking like this could happen.

GLENN: I have heard from people who have access to the inner circle that this decision is being made this week. It will happen before -- they will know before the swearing in ceremony, and the same with the Supreme Court justice, that is being decided right now.

There's a couple of Supreme Court justices on that list that are not good. One of them -- and I can't remember -- I got to get the paperwork on it. I'll give it to you tomorrow.

One of them is the judge that -- remember the story about the person who had the Post-It note with the Bible phrase on it in their cubical, and then they were fired, and they were sued, and they said, "I have a right to have that," and the judge said, "No, you don't."

PAT: Yeah.

GLENN: One of the judges on that list and apparently one of the now top three finalists is that judge.

PAT: How did that judge get the Ted Cruz stamp of approval then? And Mike Lee? I mean, Mike Lee loved that list.

GLENN: I don't know.

PAT: Wow.

GLENN: Most of them are really good. The ones that it has come down to -- I guess it's come down to the final four, and there's two of them that are really bad and two of them that are really good.

PAT: Is Mike Lee one of them?

GLENN: No. No.

PAT: Okay. His brother? Is his brother one of them? No.

GLENN: No.

JEFFY: Is Mike too good for the job? Is he just too good?

PAT: Well, you know that's the case. Yes. The answer to that is yes. There are a lot of people who are just too good for the job, just won't be considered because nobody wants to fight for them. Nobody wants to put that kind of political capital on the line to seriously fight for an excellent Supreme Court candidate.

Now, they'll do that on the left. They'll do that all day on the left. They'll bring out a communist and say, "Oh, I'm going to fight to the death for this guy."

JEFFY: Right.

PAT: They don't care. They don't care.

GLENN: You don't know -- you don't know -- Mike Lee, I think, would be the best.

PAT: Or his brother would be great.

GLENN: Yeah, his brother would be great. But there are others too.

PAT: And some of them I don't even know anything about. So...

GLENN: Tomorrow, we'll give you some information on that.

But do you believe Obamacare is going away?

PAT: I believe it is. What I'm slightly nervous about is what it's going to be replaced with.

(chuckling)

GLENN: Right.

PAT: Is it going to be something just as bad or worse, or are you going to go with a free market replacement? Are you going to just simply erase the lines of competition between the states?

GLENN: Well, Donald Trump has said that he would do that, but he also said that you have to keep preexisting conditions.

PAT: Right. So -- and he also said everyone must be covered and he didn't care if it cost him votes and the government would pay for that. So that's a concern as well.

STU: Tomorrow, we should spend some time looking at the actual replacements that had been proposed that will probably be the basis of what they go with.

PAT: Yeah. Yeah.

GLENN: The guy he went with, with HHS, has a really good solution to the repeal and replace of Obamacare.

PAT: Does he?

GLENN: Nobody's paying attention to it, but he's got it.

Terry Trobiani owns Gianelli's Drive Thru in Prairie Grove, Illinois, where he put up a row of American flags for the Fourth of July. But the city claimed he was displaying two of them improperly and issued him a $100 ticket for each flag.

Terry joined Glenn Beck on the radio program Tuesday to explain what he believes really happened. He told Glenn that, according to city ordinance, the American flag is considered "ornamental" and should therefore have been permitted on a federal holiday. But the city has now classified the flag as a "sign."

"Apparently, the village of Prairie Grove has classified the American flag as a sign and they've taken away the symbol of the American flag," Terry said. "So, as a sign, it falls under their temporary sign ordinance, which prohibits any flying, or any positioning of signs on your property — and now this includes the American flag. [...] The only way I could fly the American flag on my property is if I put it on a permanent 20 to 30-foot flagpole, which they have to permit."

Terry went on to explain how the city is now demanding an apology for his actions, and all after more than a year of small-business crushing COVID restrictions and government mandates.

"COVID was tough," Terry stated. "You know, we're in the restaurant business. COVID was tough on us. We succeeded. We made it through. We cut a lot of things, but we never cut an employee. We paid all our employees. I didn't take a paycheck for a year just to keep our employees on, because it was that important to me to keep things going. And, you know, you fight for a year, and you beat a pandemic, and then you have this little municipality with five trustees and a president, who just have no respect for small businesses. And right now, what I see is they have no respect for the republic and the United States ... I think it's terrible. The direction that government, at all levels, have taken us to this point, it's despicable."

The Biden administration is now doing everything it can to censor what it has decided is COVID-19 "misinformation." But Glenn Beck isn't confident that the silencing of voices will stop there.

Yeonmi Park grew up in North Korea, where there is no freedom of speech, and she joined Glenn to warn that America must not let this freedom go.

"Whenever authoritarianism rises, the first thing they go after is freedom of speech," she said.

Most self-proclaimed Marxists know very little about Marxism. Some of them have all the buzzwords memorized. They talk about the exploits of labor. They talk about the slavery of capitalist society and the alienation caused by capital. They talk about the evils of power and domination.

But they don't actually believe what they say. Or else they wouldn't be such violent hypocrites. And we're not being dramatic when we say "violent."

For them, Marxism is a political tool that they use to degrade and annoy their political enemies.

They don't actually care about the working class.

Another important thing to remember about Marxists is that they talk about how they want to defend the working class, but they don't actually understand the working class. They definitely don't realize that the working class is composed mostly of so many of the people they hate. Because, here's the thing, they don't actually care about the working class. Or the middle class. They wouldn't have the slightest clue how to actually work, not the way we do. For them, work involves ranting about how work and labor are evil.

Ironically, if their communist utopia actually arrived, they would be the first ones against the wall. Because they have nothing to offer except dissent. They have no practical use and no real connection to reality.

Again ironically, they are the ultimate proof of the success of capitalism. The fact that they can freely call for its demise, in tweets that they send from their capitalistic iPhones, is proof that capitalism affords them tremendous luxuries.

Their specialty is complaining. They are fanatics of a religion that is endlessly cynical.

They sneer at Christianity for promising Heaven in exchange for good deeds on earth — which is a terrible description of Christianity, but it's what they actually believe — and at the same time they criticize Christianity for promising a utopia, they give their unconditional devotion to a religion that promises a utopia.

They are fanatics of a religion that is endlessly cynical.

They think capitalism has turned us into machines. Which is a bad interpretation of Marx's concept of the General Intellect, the idea that humans are the ones who create machines, so humans, not God, are the creators.

They think that the only way to achieve the perfect society is by radically changing and even destroying the current society. It's what they mean when they say things about the "status quo" and "hegemony" and the "established order." They believe that the system is broken and the way to fix it is to destroy, destroy, destroy.

Critical race theory actually takes it a step farther. It tells us that the racist system can never be changed. That racism is the original sin that white people can never overcome. Of course, critical race theorists suggest "alternative institutions," but these "alternative institutions" are basically the same as the ones we have now, only less effective and actually racist.

Marx's violent revolution never happened. Or at least it never succeeded. Marx's followers have had to take a different approach. And now, we are living through the Revolution of Constant Whining.

This post is part of a series on critical race theory. Read the full series here.

Americans are losing faith in our justice system and the idea that legal consequences are applied equally — even to powerful elites in office.

Rep. Devin Nunes (R-CA) joined Glenn Beck on the radio program to detail what he believes will come next with the Durham investigation, which hopefully will provide answers to the Obama FBI's alleged attempts to sabotage former President Donald Trump and his campaign years ago.

Rep. Nunes and Glenn assert that we know Trump did NOT collude with Russia, and that several members of the FBI possibly committed huge abuses of power. So, when will we see justice?
