10 Things You Need to Know About Trump's Supreme Court Nominee

Here’s what you need to know:

1. His academic resume alone is very impressive:

He completed his undergraduate studies at Columbia University in New York, got his J.D. from Harvard Law School, and then earned his doctorate from Oxford after studying under the titanic legal philosopher and natural lawyer John Finnis.

2. There would also be another interesting first:

After clerking under Justice Byron White, Gorsuch clerked for Justice Anthony Kennedy. If confirmed, it would be the first time a Supreme Court justice sat on the same bench as a jurist for whom he’d previously clerked.

3. He knows the struggles of being a conservative on a liberal college campus:

A bio prepared by the Alliance for Justice during his confirmation process in 2006 outlines his conservative student journalism 30 years prior:

While in college, Mr. Gorsuch co-founded a newspaper and a magazine at Columbia University. Both publications – The Morningside Review (the magazine) and The Federalist (the newspaper) – were intended to counter what Mr. Gorsuch and his co-founders saw as the predominance of liberal political views at Columbia during the mid-to-late 1980s. A review of available issues of the The Morningside Review, located in the Columbia archives, revealed two pieces authored by Mr. Gorsuch: one was a comment on U.S. policy in Afghanistan; the other, a general defense of conservative political philosophy. The Columbia archives also contain most, but not all, of the editions of the The Federalist published during Mr. Gorsuch’s tenure at the paper. According to its initial statement of purpose, The Federalist attempted to provide a “classically liberal” forum for conservative students and others who want to air views not typically heard on campus. Mr. Gorsuch, one of the paper’s three founders, served on the board of editors and later as a contributor.

An op-ed in the Los Angeles Times titled, "What can you do about the Trumpites next door?" is causing quite a stir. In the column, the author, columnist Virginia Heffernan, complains after her Trump-supporting neighbors plowed snow off her driveway without being asked — and "did a great job."

Heffernan asks "how much thanks?" do the neighbors deserve "in the face of this act of aggressive niceness." Just when you think she's joking, Heffernan goes on to compare her Trump-supporting neighbors to Hezbollah, the mafia, and, of course, Nazi sympathizers.

"This is also kind of weird. Back in the city, people don't sweep other people's walkways for nothing," Heffernan wrote. "Hezbollah, the Shiite Islamist political party in Lebanon, also gives things away for free ... And they also demand devotion to their brutal, us-versus-them anti-Sunni cause. Some of us are family, the favors say; the rest are infidels."

She continued, writing, "What do we do about the Trumpites around us? Like Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (D-N.Y.), who spoke eloquently this week about her terrifying experience during the insurrection at the Capitol on Jan. 6, Americans are expected to forgive and forget before we've even stitched up our wounds. Or gotten our vaccines against the pandemic that former President Trump utterly failed to mitigate.

My neighbors supported a man who showed near-murderous contempt for the majority of Americans. They kept him in business with their support. But the plowing."

On the radio program this week, Glenn Beck reacted to Heffernan's op-ed, and offered some really helpful advice he said he'd recently received: If you're getting this upset at your friends, family, neighbors — just STOP. Instead of only tolerating the other side, maybe try to understand them. You may find more common ground than you think.

In the past week, independent rapper Tom MacDonald's new song "Fake Woke" soared to No. 1 on iTunes and has now earned a spot on the Billboard Hot 100. Tom's lyrics call out cancel culture and the "fake woke" Americans who support it. Watch his music video here.

Tom joined Glenn Beck on the radio program to discuss why he's speaking out against woke culture, the responses he's gotten, and his fear for the industry moving forward if "opinions become illegal."

The Daily Wire's Ben Shapiro argues that even liberals are becoming too scared to speak out in defense of anyone who dares to disagree with the "woke left" — even if their own freedoms are on the line — and he has experienced it firsthand.

Case in point, hundreds of Politico staffers were enraged and horrified last month after Ben was invited to guest-write the site's "Playbook" political newsletter. Apparently, giving a voice to even one conservative is way too extreme for our modern media.

This week on the Glenn Beck Podcast, Ben shed new light on the Politico Playbook blow-up and explained why he believes this will become the new normal in the Democratic Party.

Economist and bestselling author Harry Dent has called the past few economic crashes eerily accurately — and he's now predicting a major "super-bubble" crash will happen by June of this year. He joined Glenn Beck on the radio program Friday to talk about what he believes is coming soon for our financial markets.

Harry said the federal reserve and central banks have taken over free market capitalism. "[Central banks] set interest rates. They drive bonds up and interest rates down. They drive stocks up continually... [and] run the economy like a machine," He explained. "And this is what has created this great bubble. And a great disconnect."

Harry said he expects that when the "already ordained" next crash happens, the "entire role of central banks will be questioned." But will this be enough to break the hold of big banks, big companies, and the likes of the Federal Reserve on the economy?
