Who Trump's Supreme Court Pick Will Be and What It Means

President Trump might just be the master media manipulator he believes he is after all. Following a riotous weekend over his executive order banning travel from several predominantly Muslim countries, Trump is poised to take the air out of the left's astroturf outrage and turn it to the Supreme Court.

In quintessential Trump style, the announcement will air live on television during prime time --- ensuring as many eyeballs are on him as possible.

According to sources close to The Glenn Beck Program, the list of 21 candidates Trump released prior to the election is down to three, and more likely it's between two of the three men. Here are the finalists and what their nomination could mean to future of the Supreme Court.

3. William Pryor: The Partisan (Right of Alito, Left of Clarence Thomas)

Pryor is on the 11th Circuit Court of Appeals in Atlanta and he is the oldest of the possible choices. At 54, he would still have a long career ahead of him on the bench, however.

He is by far the most outspoken of the three and the definitely the least liked by the Democrats. Choosing Pryor would fit the mold of Trump not caring what anyone says, but the President would be in for a fight to get him confirmed. Chances are he would get through, but it would expend a lot of political capital --- which remains to be seen if that even matters for this administration.

One sticking point for evangelicals was when he, as Attorney General of Alabama, had Judge Roy Moore ousted for refusing to obey a federal court order to remove the ten commandments from the state judicial building. Pryor stated this was only to follow a court order, but this is one knock on him the far right has held on to, as well as his recent support for transgender rights.

He is not afraid to say what he believes, which is why the left calls him a bomb-thrower and considers him a culture warrior. Many on the right see him as a conservative star on the rise as he is a fierce critic of Roe v Wade, has upheld the Georgia voter ID law and has called sectarian prayers opening a local commission meeting constitutional. He's probably not a Scalia-in-waiting, but who is? He's more in the mold of an Alito, but this all may be moot if the reports are correct, as it looks like he's probably on the outside looking in.

2. Thomas Hardiman: The Centrist (Left of Roberts, Right of Kennedy)

Hardiman is definitely the more moderate of the choices, something conservatives are wary of after appointments like Kennedy and Roberts haven't turned out the way they had hoped for. He is the only one of the candidates or sitting members of the bench without an Ivy League pedigree. He grew up in public schools in a blue collar family and went to Notre Dame and put himself through law school at Georgetown by driving a taxi.

He fits the bill with regard to his pro-life stance and he is strong on the second amendment, but he is seen as a government friendly conservative like William Rehnquist and has sided with Big Brother on censorship issues. He is 51 and like the other two candidates would likely have influence for decades to come. He might be the most confirmable of the three, having been confirmed 95-0 on the appellate court with votes from Senate Minority Leader Chuck Schumer and Diane Feinstein.

He is a former trial judge who has been serving on the 3rd Circuit Court of Appeals in Philidelphia, which happens to be the same court as President Trump's sister --- Maryanne Trump Barry. He receives a glowing recommendation from her and Barry is thought to have significant influence on her brother --- so don't be surprised if Hardiman ends up being the nominee.

1. Neil Gorsuch:The Libertarian (Right of Scalia, Left of Clarence Thomas)

Gorsuch is a name not many knew outside of political junkie circles, but he has quickly risen to the top of the list over the past couple of weeks. At 49 years old, he would theoretically have the best chance of having a lasting influence. He is pro-life and has sided against assisted suicide, but has yet to have a ruling in an abortion case. This might help win some votes from democrats while conservatives can still feel relatively comfortable on where he stands.

His lack of a record might make him less likely to be Borked than a Pryor nomination could. Gorsuch sided with Hobby Lobby and Little Sisters of the Poor in upholding their right to follow their religious beliefs when it cames to mandatory insurance laws, and he's believed to have the libertarian streak of Scalia and the smooth style of Roberts.

Gorsuch has stated he is an originalist, meaning he believes in interpreting the constitution as it was written “rather than pronouncing the law as they might wish it to be in light of their own political views.”

What does it all mean?

If John Roberts has taught us anything, it's that you never know what you're going to get from the bench until you get it. Was Roberts blackmailed into his Obamacare ruling, did he cave to the legacy-making aspect of the case or did his spine just turn to jelly? When it comes to replacing a champion of small government conservatism like Antonin Scalia, chances are the nominee will stand in the vast shadow of his legacy and never eclipse the work he was able to accomplish.

That being said, there will be a nominee and it appears it will be one of these three. According to conservative circles, Hardiman is the least liked while Pryor is beloved by some but questioned by others. If when the dust settles Donald Trump lands on Neil Gorsuch, conservatives could do much worse.

POLL: Should Universities allow pro-Hamas protests?

Just one day after Hamas’s surprise attack on Israel, which left over 1,400 people Israelis dead, 34 different student groups from Harvard University wrote a joint statement pinning the blame of Hamas' terrorist attack on Israel. In the following days after publishing this callous statement, these students staged a walkout and rallied in support of the Palestinians. As Glenn has discussed, this is not an isolated event, and campuses across the country have hosted similar rallies where antisemitic jargon like "we don't want no Jew state" and "globalize the intifada" is freely spewed.

Should Universities allow pro-Hamas protests?

While the Universities have not officially backed any of these rallies or student groups that organized them, they haven't stopped them either, which raises the question: should they? On one hand, these are American students in American Universities, who are protected by the First Amendment. On the other hand, history tells us how dangerous antisemitism is if left unchecked; and what of the rights of Jewish students to be safe on the campuses they pay to attend? Let us know what you think in the poll below:

POLL: What do YOU think Israel should do about Gaza?

Should Israel take over Gaza after defeating Hamas? This contentious historical question has resurfaced amid Israel's retaliatory airstrikes in Gaza following Hamas' terror attacks, which resulted in the greatest death of Jews since the Holocaust. Biden and the global elites have warned Israel against occupation of the Palestinian territory. When asked on 60 Minutes if he would support the Israeli occupation of Gaza, Biden said, “I think it would be a big mistake.” Today Glenn responded to Biden’s answer: “I don't think it's a mistake to occupy."

This has been a long-standing, polarizing issue that is now more relevant than ever, and we want to hear YOUR thoughts. Let us know in the poll below:

Do you think the Israeli airstrikes in Gaza are justified?

Funding IRAN?! Here are the TOP 5 reasons Joe Biden should be IMPEACHED

On September 12th, the House announced an official impeachment inquiry into Joe Biden with allegations of abuse of power, obstruction, and corruption. Naturally, the media quickly jumped to the President’s aid claiming that “there is no evidence to support these claims” and that the whole affair is a witch hunt.

If you’ve been listening to Glenn, you know that this is simply not the case. Biden has been committing impeachment-worthy deeds before he even stepped foot into the Oval Office—there’s no shortage of evidence to justify this inquiry. Here are 5 scathing reasons why Biden should be impeached:

He was responsible for the Afghanistan withdrawal disaster.

The Biden administration began with the US's disastrous withdrawal from Afghanistan. Under his watch, Biden left thousands of US citizens and allies stranded in the Taliban's hostile regime. Countless Afghan allies have been murdered by the Taliban due to the Biden administration's negligence.

He was involved with Hunter Biden's illicit foreign business dealings.

There is clear evidence that Joe Biden was more than aware of his son Hunter's foreign business dealings. From suspicious money laundering through the Biden family's accounts to Joe's involvement with important business meetings within Hunter's company, there is mounting evidence to warrant an impeachment inquiry.

He lied about his involvement with Hunter's business dealings.

Not only did Biden involve himself with his son's less-than-legal foreign business ventures, but he lied to the American people about it too, claiming he had NO KNOWLEDGE of what was going on.

He failed to protect the Southern border, and actively made it worse.

Biden singlehandedly turned the Southern border into the worst illegal immigration crisis in US history. He reversed many policies set in place by the Trump administration, resulting in 2.3 million illegal immigrants flooding into the US under his watch, a historic high.

Biden reversed the Trump-era policy that halted all funds going into Iran. The Wall Street Journal revealed the smoking-gun evidence proving that Iran trained AND funded Hamas before its gruesome terror attacks against Israel. Moreover, shortly before the attacks, the Biden administration unfroze $6 BILLION dollars of Iran's assets as a part of a prisoner swap. On top of this, Biden resumed $200 million worth of "humanitarian aid" to Gaza that Trump had ended—because the money was being used to buy weapons for Hamas.
