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.

Eric Weinstein, managing director of investment firm Thiel Capital and host of "The Portal" podcast, is not a conservative, but he says conservative and center-right-affiliated media are the only ones who will still allow oppositional voices.

On "The Glenn Beck Podcast" this week, Eric told Glenn that the center-left media, which "controls the official version of events for the country," once welcomed him, but that all changed about eight years ago when they started avoiding any kind of criticism by branding those who disagree with them as "alt-right, far-right, neo-Nazi, etc.," even if they are coming from the left side of the aisle. But their efforts to discredit critical opinions don't stop there. According to Eric, there is a strategy being employed to destroy our national culture and make sure Americans with opposing views do not come together.

"We're trifling with the disillusionment of our national culture. And our national culture is what animates the country. If we lose the culture, the documents will not save us," Eric said. "I have a very strongly strategic perspective, which is that you save things up for an emergency. Well, we're there now."

In the clip below, Eric explains why, after many requests over the last few years, he finally agreed to this podcast.

Glenn Beck: Why MLK's pledge of NONVIOLENCE is the key to saving America

Listen to the Rev. Dr. Martin Luther King Jr.'s pledge of nonviolence and really let it sink in: "Remember always that the nonviolent movement seeks justice and reconciliation — not victory."

On the radio program, Glenn Beck shared King's "ten commandments" of nonviolence and the meaning behind the powerful words you may never have noticed before.

"People will say nonviolent resistance is a method of cowards. It is not. It takes more courage to stand there when people are threatening you," Glenn said. "You're not necessarily the one who is going to win. You may lose. But you are standing up with courage for the ideas that you espouse. And the minute you engage in the kind of activity that the other side is engaging in, you discredit the movement. You discredit everything we believe in."

Take MLK's words to heart, America. We must stand with courage, nonviolently, with love for all, and strive for peace and rule of law, not "winning."

Conservatives are between a rock and a hard place with Section 230 and Big Tech censorship. We don't want more government regulation, but have we moved beyond the ability of Section 230 reforms to rein in Big Tech's rising power?

Rachel Bovard, Conservative Partnership Institute's senior director of policy, joined the Glenn Beck radio program to give her thoughts and propose a possibly bipartisan alternative: enforcing our existing antitrust laws.

Dan Bongino, host of The Dan Bongino Show, is an investor in Parler — the social media platform that actually believes in free speech. Parler was attacked by Big Tech — namely Amazon, Apple, and Google — earlier this week, but Bongino says the company isn't giving up without a fight. In fact, he says, he's willing to go bankrupt over this one.

Dan joined Glenn Beck on the radio program to detail what he calls a "smear" campaign behind the scenes, and how he believes we can move forward from Big Tech's control.

"You have no idea how bad this was behind the scenes," Dan told Glenn. "I know you're probably thinking ... well, how much worse can the attack on Parler have gotten than three trillion-dollar companies — Amazon, Apple, and Google — all seemingly coordinated to remove your business from the face of the Earth? Well, behind the scenes, it's even worse. I mean, there are smear campaigns, pressure campaigns ... lawyers, bankers, everyone, to get this company ... wiped from the face of the earth. It's incredible."

Dan emphasized that he would not give up without a fight, because what's he's really fighting for is the right to free speech for all Americans, regardless of their political opinions, without fear of being banned, blacklisted, or losing jobs and businesses.

"I will go bankrupt. I will go absolutely destitute before I let this go," he said. "I have had some very scary moments in my life and they put horse blinders on me. I know what matters now. It's not money. It's not houses. It's none of that crap. It's this: the ability to exist in a free country, where you can express your ideas freely."
