SCOTUS or bust: Kavanaugh forced to withdraw from teaching gig at Harvard

Kavanaugh has been accused of being too angry, which means he must not have the temperament to be on the Supreme Court. But pick any of the other eight justices already on the Court, viciously attack them in the very same way that Kavanaugh has been attacked, then evaluate their "judicial temperament."

Remember the part of Kavanaugh's opening statement before the Judiciary Committee last Thursday when he talked about the committee's Democrats destroying his life? He said he might not be able to teach or coach basketball again. He wasn't exaggerating.

Over the weekend, there was an opinion piece in USA Today that said:

The U.S. Senate may yet confirm Kavanaugh to the Supreme Court, but he should stay off basketball courts for now when kids are around.

Think about what's being callously implied there. No evidence. No accusations prior to a couple weeks ago. But now someone is calling him unfit to be around kids. I can't imagine what Kavanaugh and his family are going through.

Now, Kavanaugh has announced he will not return to teach at Harvard Law School this coming winter term. Harvard announced that the course he was slated to teach will not be offered.

Harvard must be relieved that he withdrew instead of them having to fire him, since reportedly over 800 Harvard Law graduates have signed a letter calling on the school to dump Kavanaugh. The virtue signaling was very strong in their letter:

Now more than ever, Harvard Law School must send a clear message that it takes sexual violence seriously.

Okay. But this was a teacher they were completely fine with just a few weeks ago. In fact, they were more than fine with him – he was a student favorite. Before his confirmation circus began, The New York Times looked at 700 pages of student evaluations of Kavanaugh over a 10-year span and found:

…there was almost only glowing praise for Judge Kavanaugh's teaching. More than a few students said he was the most impressive law school professor they had encountered.

Kavanaugh was good enough for Elena Kagan – a female nonetheless, and one of the most Left-leaning justices on the Supreme Court. She hired him to teach at Harvard Law School when she was the dean. But he's not good enough for the Senate Democrats who put her on the Supreme Court. Makes total sense.

Sen. Ted Cruz: NOBODY should be afraid of Trump's Supreme Court justice pick

Sen. Ted Cruz (R-Texas) joined Glenn Beck on the radio program Wednesday to weigh in on President Donald Trump's potential Supreme Court nominees and talk about his timely new book, "One Vote Away: How a Single Supreme Court Seat Can Change History."

Sen. Cruz argued that, while Congressional Democrats are outraged over President Trump's chance at a third court appointment, no one on either side should be afraid of a Supreme Court justice being appointed if it's done according to the founding documents. That's why it's crucial that the GOP fills the vacant seat with a true constitutionalist.

Sen. Mike Lee (R-Utah) joined Glenn Beck on the radio program Wednesday to talk about why he believes President Donald Trump will nominate Judge Amy Coney Barrett to fill the Supreme Court vacancy created by Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg's death.

Lee, a member of the Senate Judiciary Committee that will consider and vote on the nominee, also weighed in on another Supreme Court contender: Judge Barbara Lagoa. Lee said he would not be comfortable confirming Lagoa without learning more about her history as it pertains to upholding the U.S. Constitution.

This week on the Glenn Beck Podcast, Glenn spoke with Vox co-founder Matthew Yglesias about his new book, "One Billion Americans: The Case for Thinking Bigger."

Matthew and Glenn agree that, while conservatives and liberals may disagree on a lot, we're not as far apart as some make it seem. If we truly want America to continue doing great things, we must spend less time fighting amongst ourselves.

'A convenient boogeyman for misinformation artists': Why is the New York Times defending George Soros?

On the "Glenn Beck Radio Program" Tuesday, Glenn discussed the details of a recent New York Times article that claims left-wing billionaire financier George Soros "has become a convenient boogeyman for misinformation artists who have falsely claimed that he funds spontaneous Black Lives Matter protests as well as antifa, the decentralized and largely online, far-left activist network that opposes President Trump."

The Times article followed last week's bizarre Fox News segment in which former House Speaker Newt Gingrich appeared to be censored for criticizing Soros (read more here). The article also labeled Glenn a "conspiracy theorist" for his tweet supporting Gingrich.
