If Democrats Voted for Gorsuch in 2006, Why Wouldn't They Now?

Supreme Court nominee Judge Neil Gorsuch was perfectly palatable to many Democrats in 2016 when he was confirmed as a federal judge --- but the stakes are much higher now.

"Now, surely, there's going to be an extreme distaste for Mr. Gorsuch," Co-host Stu Burguiere said Wednesday on The Glenn Beck Program.

Will Democrats try to tear apart Gorsuch as they did Robert Bork and Clarence Thomas? Unless something real lurks in the shadows, any salvos fired a Gorsuch's character will be contrived and the latest in a steady stream of fake news coming from the mainstream media and Washington D.C.

Listen to this segment from The Glenn Beck Program:

STU: Neil Gorsuch was confirmed in 2006 to his current role. Here's some people that voted for him: Dianne Feinstein. Ron Wyden. Richard Durbin, Dick Durbin. Chuck Schumer. Bill Nelson. Debbie Stabenow. Maria Cantwell. Bob Menendez. And four more you might know: Hillary Clinton.

(chuckling)

STU: John Kerry.

PAT: Uh-huh.

STU: Joe Biden.

PAT: Uh-huh.

STU: And another senator from Illinois, Barack Obama. Just those people thought he was fine in 2006. But now, surely, there's going to be an extreme distaste for --

GLENN: Oh, yeah --

STU: -- for Mr. Gorsuch.

GLENN: No, now he's -- now he's Bork. Now he's Bork.

STU: Yeah. I think there's -- a lot of people are saying, "Maybe they won't go after this one, because if they force the Republicans to use the nuclear option here, they'll use it again for sure when -- if Ginsburg or Kennedy were to leave."

GLENN: I guarantee you -- I guarantee you, Donald Trump will use the nuclear option. Guarantee it.

PAT: Well, he doesn't have that option. But I guess he could encourage McConnell to do that.

GLENN: Yes. But I guarantee you that they will use the nuclear option. And --

STU: The thought is, if they don't use it this time, maybe they have an argument for them not to use it next time.

If they use it -- if they force -- Democrats force Republicans to use it this time, they'll just use it again if Ginsburg or Kennedy were to go, and then they're really screwed.

GLENN: Yep. Yep.

STU: Which is good for us.

Glenn Beck: THIS is why Biden nominated Merrick Garland as attorney general

Many will remember President Biden's attorney general nominee Merrick Garland as the man Republicans refused to hold a Supreme Court confirmation hearing for back in 2016. So, was Garland's AG nomination just meant to be a slap in the face to Republicans? Glenn Beck thinks there's a lot more to it.

Given how focused Democrats are on rooting out vaguely defined "right-wing extremism," Garland's work in supervising the prosecution of the 1995 Oklahoma City bombing suspects gives us a hint, Glenn suggested on radio this week. He said he's "all for" stopping dangerous extremists, but couldn't help noticing how Garland isn't talking about any of the destruction that happened over the summer.

"I am all for justice. I am all for making sure we catch the bad guys, as long as the bad guys are not defined to be on only one side," Glenn said. "Merrick Garland said [Monday] that there was no comparison between what happened on January 6th and what happened over the summer. That is because the Washington elites see themselves as better than somebody who owns a taco stand. I don't. The Constitution doesn't. They are the same crime."

"All rich countries should move to 100% synthetic beef. You can get used to the taste difference," said holy anointed billionaire Bill Gates. Green activism has been around for decades. But what used to be wacky has now worked its way into the world's power structure. You must believe the science. You cannot question the science.

The Texas power failure provided America with a disturbing and deadly preview of the Great Reset. But Bill Gates, AOC, and other Democrats say this only proves we need to enforce MORE green policies.

On his Wednesday night special this week, Glenn Beck reveals how deep the Great Reset tentacles reach into government and business to strangle freedom and their efforts to control every aspect of your private life.

Why are we letting criminals out of prison while putting pastors in? Pastor James Coates of Canada's GraceLife Church was recently fined, arrested, and put in maximum security prison for violating lockdown rules.

Rebel News founder Ezra Levant joined Glenn Beck on "Glenn TV" to discuss the story. Ezra said he's noticed a trend of government officials "picking on" Christians as "lockdownism" becomes almost a new kind of religion, and warned this might be just the start of more persecution to come.
