Obama's Most Perilous Legal Pick

GLENN: How about this story? Not to overwhelm anybody but again, we're at the phase now where you're not going to solve these problems overnight. These problems are going to be solved in time and only solved when you stand up. Judges should interpret the Constitution according to other nations' legal norms. Sharia law could apply to disputes in U.S. courts. The United States constitutes an axis of disobedience along with North Korea and Saddam Hussein. These are the views of a man who is on track to become one of the U.S. Government's top attorneys. Harold Koh is his name. He was the dean of Yale Law School. What a surprise. President Obama has nominated Koh to the State Department's legal advisor. Imagine the state department under Hillary Clinton and Barack Obama have this guy as their lead attorney. He would forge wide range of international agreements on trade issues to arms control. He would also represent our country legally in places like the United Nations. He is a fan of transnational legal process, arguing that distinctions between the U.S. and international laws should vanish.

How does this work in real life? California, Proposition 8. People decided, went to the courts. Courts say fine; people say fine, we want it, we want it this way. He believes that the courts and the people have no right to say that because of international law. In Canada and the European human rights commission and the United Nations, they all say gay marriage should be legal. And because the United Nations says that, it doesn't matter what the people of California want. He even believes that judges should use this logic to strike down the death penalty.

The primacy of international legal norms apply to treaties that we reject. So in other words, the Kyoto protocol, we would if this guy gets his way, we have to honor it anyway because international law is above ours.

By the way, Stu, are the flowers blooming in your flower bed yet?

STU: They're beautiful.

GLENN: They're beautiful. The grass is starting to come up. It's just so fantastic. Spring is almost here. The British are coming!

He also claimed in 2007 in an appropriate case, he didn't see any reason why Sharia law would not be applied to govern a case in the United States. Sharia law over our Constitution. He has said that the war on terror is obsessive. We are obsessing over the war on terror. He says that we are an axis of disobedience. He says that George Bush has an advocacy of unfettered presidential power that is compared only to President Richard Nixon's. By the way, that was the first George Bush, not the last Bush. He also praised the Nicaraguan Sandinistas to use in 1980 the use of the International Court of Justice to get congress to stop funding the contras. He is a self described activist. Self described. He said, I would rather have former Supreme Court justice Harry Blackmun who used the wrong reasoning in Roe versus Wade to get the right results and then let other people figure out why it's right.

The state job also is a launching pad. If he gets the Department of State job, it is believed that he is going to be the nominee for the Supreme Court. This man along with I mean, look at what Obama look who Obama has placed. When it comes to any kind of anything on the environment, anything on the economy, anything with State Department and international law, they are all socialist, Marxist internationalists or a combination of all of them. This is a radical agenda. This is the, "Look at this hand, look at this hand, look at this hand" while the other hand is putting these people in. All you have to do is sign a few treaties. You cannot get out of those treaties. Once we sign our rights over to international law, the Constitution is officially dead. When you say things like, "We are not going to put the Constitution behind international law," you say that in the international court, if you say that on the floor of the United Nations, you are a freak show.

Let me tell you something. When you can't win with the people, you bump it up to the courts. When you can't win with the courts, you bump it up to the international level. Everything that is happening is happening at the international level. The things that really truly matter happen on the international level. We've got to make sure we're paying attention to the right game here. And again there's so much going on that it's hard to pay attention, but we've got to do it instead of focusing sometimes in the heat of a battle on the crocuses that have come up. They are gorgeous.

On Thursday's radio program, Grace Smith and her father, Andy, joined Glenn Beck on the phone and provided a first-hand account of Grace's refusal to wear a mask at school.

Smith, 16, began a maskless protest after her school district in Laramie, Wyoming, decided to implement a mask mandate. As a result, Grace received three suspensions, was issued two $500-citations, and was eventually arrested.

"How long were you in jail?" Glenn asked.

Grace said was taken to jail but was never booked nor was she was placed in a jail cell.

Glenn commended Grace's father, Andy, for raising such a "great citizen" and asked if it was Grace's idea to protest. Andy said it was Grace's idea, explaining that they took the position of arguing on the grounds of civil rights rather than the efficacy of wearing a mask.

Grace has since withdrawn from public school and started a home school program. She also told Glenn that she will continue to fight the school district, legally.

It seems the Left wants a civil war and some on the Right want a national divorce. The country is split right now unlike anything Glenn Beck has ever witnessed. There are two sides: Those who want to fundamentally change this country and those who believe in KEEPING the experiment of liberty that the Founding Founders intended.

The ideological gap seems impossible to cross, but Glenn explains why he won't secede. David Reaboi, Claremont Institute senior fellow and author of "National Divorce Is Expensive, but It's Worth Every Penny," tells Glenn why a national breakup is not an impossibility just because it will be difficult.

What can we do to fight back … peacefully? How can the states that still believe in the Constitution create pockets of freedom in the shadow of tyranny? On his Wednesday night special this week, Glenn answers that and provides a road map to preserving what the Left is trying to destroy.

Finally, James Simpson, author of "Who Was Karl Marx? The Men, the Motives and the Menace Behind Today's Rampaging American Left," provides solutions on the issues the "red states" must unite around before Left and Right America officially call it quits.

An Afghan interpreter who helped save then-Sen. Joe Biden's life in 2008 was among those stranded in Afghanistan after Biden's troop withdrawal. He has now escaped the country with his family, but not with President Biden's help.

Thanks to private organizations, including The Nazarene Fund, the interpreter and his family have now been rescued.

A shocking new report by The Daily Wire reveals that the furious father whose arrest at a school board meeting likely sparked the call for the FBI to investigate anti-CRT parents like domestic terrorists was furious for good reasons: The Loudoun County School Board allegedly tried to cover up his daughter's rape.

Rep. Chris Stewart (R-Utah) joined Glenn Beck on the radio program Tuesday to discuss the incident and explain why he joined 60 lawmakers in a letter to Attorney General Merrick Garland demanding answers for why the FBI is targeting parents.

"We want to know ... what kind of coordination took place between the White House, activist groups and teachers unions, and the Department of Justice," Stewart told Glenn. "Because we have evidence that there was [coordination] and, in fact, that the White House are the ones who initiated this. They asked for these activist groups to write this inflammatory letter to the Department of Justice saying they were 'intimidated' and that they 'felt threatened', giving the Department of Justice Attorney General Garland, the excuse to say, 'Okay, well, we have to respond'."

Stewart went on to say he believes the federal government would only involve the FBI in such an issue if its purpose is to silence and intimidate parents concerned about the "poison" being taught to their kids in school. So, what can he and the other representatives who disagree with the Biden administration's overreach of power do to stop it?
