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.

IBM's Role in Killing Jews & Lessons for Big Tech | Edwin Black | Ep 97

Edwin Black is the son of Holocaust survivors and an investigative journalist with awards and best-selling books translated into 20 languages in nearly 200 countries. His book "IBM and the Holocaust" examines high tech's role in killing Jews during the Holocaust and what it can teach us about the dangers of Big Tech today.

Edwin has spent enough time in the media to see all of its warts (there are a lot). And he's speaking out about it and its role in ignoring history at our nation's peril.

He also discusses Disney actress Gina Carano, fired for comparing conservative persecution to the Nazi treatment of the Jews. Our culture is being erased. Our ideals and values are being censored and mocked. Our history is being erased. With another human extermination on the horizon in China, Edwin challenges this with bravery.

The New Red Scare & Our 'Reality Czars'

The American Red Scare of the 1950s may be one of the most important — and most terrifying — events in our nation's history. It was a witch hunt — an all-out assault — on any American citizen deemed to be a threat simply because of their thoughts.
Led by Senator McCarthy, the House of Un-American Activities Committee destroyed lives. Mere accusations sometimes meant you were stripped of your job and your dignity. Sound familiar?

On Glenn TV tonight, Glenn Beck outlines how we've gone from pursuing alleged communists to pursuing "right-wing extremists." But how are our new "reality czars" defining that? Is it Trump supporters, red-state Republicans, conspiracy-theorist "nut jobs"? Our new Red Scare is here, America. Are you on the list? Later, Donald Trump Jr. joins Glenn to call out this modern McCarthyism and explains the real reason for President Trump's second impeachment trial.

Watch the special in full below:

Only BlazeTV subscribers can watch the full, unedited interview with Donald Trump Jr., free from "reality czars." Glenn asks Don Jr. how President Trump is handling the impeachment, what happens to the conservative movement going forward, and whether it will be led by a Trump.

Jewish Space Lasers & Deplatforming 'MAGA Media' | Ben Shapiro | Ep 96

Behold Ben Shapiro, the Great Wrecker of Libs himself. From the growing contempt for free speech to the fatal excesses of cancel culture and the forcefulness of so-called racial equity, Ben smashes claims that conservatives don't battle censorship. All of it is fueled by the Left's need for constant revolution and their habitual gaslighting. Seriously, the gaslighting is nonstop: At this very moment, makeshift fencing (aka a wall) surrounds the Capitol. Democrats used to hate walls and borders, but thousands of National Guardsmen occupy Washington, D.C., for unclear reasons, for an indefinite amount of time, and the Democrats are happy about it?

Ben also addresses some of the more "creative" conspiracy theories of Rep. Marjorie Taylor Greene, like Jewish space lasers. And what about the obsession to rid this "cancer" from Congress? Ben says it's all politics: "We're all old enough to remember [before] Marjorie Taylor Greene, it was Steve King, and when it was not Steve King and it was Christine O'Donnell, and when it was not Christine O'Donnell, it was Todd Akin. Meanwhile, I got Nancy Pelosi on the cover of a magazine with Ilhan Omar, and it's like, well, 'that's just the way things go' five minutes after she was about to censure her for her anti-Semitism." Ben ends the show on a strategy to help Democrats and tearful journalists at Politico stop treating conservatives as domestic enemies.

How Biden will COMPLETE Obama's radical transformation of America

On his Wednesday night special, Glenn Beck heads to the chalkboard to reveal the moment in history we went from "America the Free" to "America the Oligarchy." He runs through a terrifying checklist of how much damage has been done since former President Barack Obama promised to "fundamentally transform the United States of America," and argues the Biden administration is really just Obama 2.0 on steroids, and progressive ideals are being executed at a hyper-accelerated pace.

While Joe Biden signed record numbers of executive actions, the World Economic Forum gathered to further push the Great Reset, and the ideas are nearly identical. There's a very specific reason why the first keynote speaker last week at the World Economic Forum wasn't an expert on free market capitalism, but the president of ... CHINA.

We are hurtling toward an oligarchy where Big Government merges with Big Corporations. They'll have all the power, and according to our betters behind the Great Reset, "You'll own nothing and you'll be happy."
