Supreme Court Approves the Travel Ban – for Now

Remind me:

Nearly a year ago, the Trump administration tried to enforce a travel ban on several Muslim-majority countries that a federal district court found to be discriminatory. After multiple lawsuits, the travel ban was stopped from including green card holders and other permanent legal residents, and a modified third version of the order has gotten the OK from the Supreme Court for now.

What’s next?

The 9th U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals and the 4th U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals will hold arguments on the ban this week to analyze its legality. The Supreme Court is aiming to give a final ruling on the issue by the end of this term (June 2018).

Glenn’s take:

Glenn pointed out that if we were truly banning Muslims from the U.S., the ban would have affected travel to and from the most populous Muslim-majority countries, a list that includes India and Pakistan.

GLENN: Well, the US Supreme Court has finally, definitely, possibly, maybe, temporarily, but for sure, green lit the travel ban.

So are we ever going to get any finality on this? This version of the ban, the third if anyone is still counting, was issued four months ago. It's currently facing ongoing opposition from two lower courts into separate challenges. Those cases are going to be heard this week. So the temporary win for the administration might end up being a short celebration. But we're not sure because they decided for sure, temporarily, kind of -- it's carved in Jell-O.

You got to give it to the social justice warrior activists, media, politicians, you guys are good, man. Pretty impressive on how you can take any issue at all, it doesn't matter what it is, and turn it into a social justice jihad. Are you pro-life? Well, why do you hate women so much? You pro-religious liberty? What a fascist bigot you are.

I would have loved to have been a fly on the wall on the strategy table, you know, when I heard people start to, how are we going to spin the travel ban? Okay. Guys, what do all these countries have any common? They all have a lot of sand. Trump hates desert climates.

Nice. Nice thought. Maybe we could spin a climate change argument here. Anybody else?

Yeah. All of these areas are conflict zones.

Idiot. Stupidest idea I've heard yet. You can't just say that and then not follow it up with an agenda. Here, let me work with you here. These are unstable areas. A prime example of the effects of global colonialism. Boom. There. That's how you get it done. Wait a minute. Iran. Libya. Somalia. Syria. Yemen. Chad.

Wait a minute. There's a lot of Muslims in these areas. Change the word from Trump's travel ban to a travel ban on Muslim majority countries. Now, we're going to have to find a way to get everybody to forget that North Korea and Venezuela are part of the travel ban as well, and they're not full of Muslims.

If we can just get them to forget, done and done.

Back to reality here for a second. If this truly were a Muslim ban, then why the addition of North Korea and Venezuela? Why wouldn't you add in the most populous Muslim countries in the world? Indonesia is 13 percent of the world's Muslim population. Kind of big. In fact, number one on the charts. Coming in at number two, Muslim populated country is India. Followed with Pakistan at number three with a bullet.

The only country the travel ban -- the only country the travel ban is including that breaks the top ten is Iran. So wait. This can't be a Muslim travel ban. I know. I know. Trump said that. But he's dumb as a box of rocks.

Why are people so comfortable with putting up with a false social justice agenda? Especially when it comes to national security. Maybe it's because the people pushing this will never have to live with the consequences. I mean, how many are going to live in neighborhoods that will have illegal immigrants or refugee resettlements? I mean, we find out really quick when we say, oh, we're going to resettle them in your neighborhood. Everybody is like, oh, now wait. Hold on just a second. You look at Hawaii. The state has become famous for overruling the travel ban, right? The Hawaiians are not going to put up with this. Except since 2010, you know how many refugees Hawaii has accepted? Count them. You can. Because -- well, unless you've lost a finger. Ten. Ten.

That's less than 1 percent. And none of their legal immigrants come anywhere close to those conflicted areas listed on the travel ban.

Oh, but they're all about allowing North Korea to stay on the ban. Yeah, we're going to ban those guys. You bet.

So here's to a little safety. Well, at least until the Supreme Court changes its mind, perhaps later this week.

Segregation Survivor: How to Counter BLM's Race LIES | Bob Woodson | Ep 106

Civil rights activist and Woodson Center founder Bob Woodson has lived through segregation and been a victim of racism. But he doesn't fit the Left's mold. In fact, he's providing an alternative narrative to their "equity." With the Woodson Center and 1776 Unites, he is offering solutions that BLM rejects, but that are actually helping improve the lives of countless people trapped in poverty and inner-city violence. He goes through all of this and more in his latest book, "Red, White, and Black: Rescuing American History from Revisionists and Race Hustlers." And he joins Glenn to make the case that the radical Left does not represent the majority of the black community. As leftist race-baiters make millions off branding the police as white supremacists while breaking the spirits of Americans of ALL races, Woodson calls out their moral treason, speaks truth to power, and denounces real racism for what it truly is: evil.

Biden's Big Speech: The Glenn Beck & Mark Levin Rebuttal

After months of delays and COVID-19 excuses, President Biden finally delivers his address to the joint session of Congress. It is a truly historic moment, as only a few hundred members of Congress received an invite. While some have compared this speech to JFK's moon landing challenge, it will likely be more like FDR's New Deal nightmare. Will Speaker Pelosi continue her tradition of ripping up the president's speech? Will VP Harris cackle to a quiet audience?

Glenn Beck teams up with fellow BlazeTV host Mark Levin, author of the new book "American Marxism," to take on the progressive plans that could completely transform our economy and our way of life. Steve Deace, BlazeTV host and author of "Faucian Bargain," joins to discuss why it's not enough for conservatives to just lament the dangerous Democrat agenda; we must activate against the woke infection of our institutions. Plus, a power panel to rival CNN talking heads: Stu Burguiere, BlazeTV host of "Stu Does America," and Jason Buttrill, head researcher and writer for Glenn Beck.

Is 2022 Our Last Chance to Save America? | Victor Davis Hanson | Ep 105

Do you know where your water comes from? Renowned historian and conservative commentator Victor Davis Hanson gets his water from a well on his family farm. He pumps it himself. And he believes that's what more Americans need — to be grounded and stop taking so much for granted. Hanson joins Glenn to point out that this needs to happen soon, because as he describes in his new article, "The 10 Radical New Rules That Are Changing America," things are getting ... bleak. The Left is subverting the Constitution more every day. The value of the dollar is dropping. The media has fused with the radical Left. Corporations, Hollywood, Silicon Valley are all working together to increase their power and their wokeness. And academia isn't any better — as a senior fellow at Stanford University's Hoover Institution, Hanson has watched for himself the deterioration of constitutional rights on campus. And as a historian, he knows how all of this usually ends — and what we must do to prevent it.

Dollar Decimation: How Biden’s Spending Spree Will End Our Currency

If it feels like the U.S. government is spending money like it's going out of style, it's because it is.

On Glenn TV this week, Glenn Beck exposes the TRUE state of our economy that the Biden administration doesn't want you to see. Obama kicked off a spending spree that was continued under the Trump administration, and now President Joe Biden will finally push us over the ledge with the $2.3 TRILLION "infrastructure" deal.

All signs point to a major economic disaster. And the perfect storm is brewing to convert the greenback into a new digital currency. Think Bitcoin, but with CENTRAL bank control, where we could see the end of private savings and private spending and your finances are tracked. Every time our money gets converted, your wallet will take the losses.
