Search for the next Supreme Court Justice keeps getting deeper into the gutter

This is what the Supreme Court nomination process has come to. We're now decoding high school yearbooks.

But before the Left gets too far down this rabbit hole, are they sure they want to declare open season on the high school yearbooks of public officials? I mean, they'll have to drag in cultural anthropologists to translate the archaic language of Dianne Feinstein's 1949 yearbook. And just imagine what groovy double entendres lie between the covers of Patrick Leahy's 1966 yearbook.

If you think a 35-year-old yearbook can be mined for vital character insights on a Supreme Court nominee, go ahead and dig into it. Seems like a total waste of time, but if you're going to do it, at least do an honest job. The New York Times failed at that part.

The 1983 yearbook apparently features a photo of Kavanaugh and some of his buddies with the caption "Renate Alumni." Oooohh – what could it possibly mean? According to The Times, the caption references a female student named Renate Schroeder Dolphin. In The Times story, two of Kavanaugh's classmates say that the caption is the boys boasting about having had sex with Renate.

Renate Dolphin told The Times that the insinuation is untrue. Kavanaugh, and four other men in the yearbook photo, also say the caption is just a reference to their dating Ms. Dolphin.

When The Times first posted the story, they referenced a Mr. Madaleno as one of their sources. He was a classmate of Kavanaugh's at Georgetown Prep. But just an hour later, The Times deleted his name from the article. Madaleno is a Maryland state senator who recently lost a Democratic primary for governor.

He is a staunch Trump opponent who ran a recent TV ad in which he says, "What's the number one way I piss off Donald Trump and the Republicans?" Then he kisses his male spouse and says, "Take that, Trump!"

Another Kavanaugh classmate quoted in the article is William Fishburne who worked on Madaleno's campaign.

The media is sick of "fake news" jabs, yet they keep producing sloppy work and calling it journalism.

The media is sick of "fake news" jabs, yet they keep producing sloppy work and calling it journalism. This New York Times yearbook investigation is not at all transparent about its sources with vendettas against Trump and Republicans.

Here's a fact: trying to parse an inside joke of teenagers from 35 years ago and applying it to a judicial nominee today is simply stupid.

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.

The former ambassador to Russia under the Obama Administration, Michael McFaul, came up with "7 Pillars of Color Revolution," a list of seven steps needed to incite the type of revolution used to upend Eastern European countries like Ukraine and Georgia in the past two decades. On his TV special this week, Glenn Beck broke down the seven steps and showed how they're happening right now in America.

Here are McFaul's seven steps:

1. Semi-autocratic regime (not fully autocratic) – provides opportunity to call incumbent leader "fascist"

2. Appearance of unpopular president or incumbent leader

3. United and organized opposition – Antifa, BLM

4. Effective system to convince the public (well before the election) of voter fraud

5. Compliant media to push voter fraud narrative

6. Political opposition organization able to mobilize "thousands to millions in the streets"

7. Division among military and police


Glenn explained each "pillar," offering examples and evidence of how the Obama administration laid out the plan for an Eastern European style revolution in order to completely upend the American system.

Last month, McFaul made a obvious attempt to downplay his "color revolutions" plan with the following tweet:

Two weeks later, he appeared to celebrate step seven of his plan in this now-deleted tweet:



As Glenn explains in this clip, the Obama administration's "7 Pillars of Color Revolution" are all playing out – just weeks before President Donald Trump takes on Democratic candidate Joe Biden in the November election.
