On CBN Newswatch, March 16: 'We are going to win': Trump blasts Hawaii judge's 'overreach' on travel ban; The 'spirit of America': Whatever happened to the Tea Party?, and more Read Transcript


Efrem: THANK YOU SO

MUCH FOR JOINING US FOR

CBN "NEWSWATCH."

I'M EFREM GRAHAM.

A FEDERAL JUDGE BLOCKS

PRESIDENT TRUMP'S NEW

TRAVEL BAN HOURS BEFORE IT

WAS SET TO TAKE EFFECT.

THE PRESIDENT CALLED THE

RULING UNPRECEDENTED

JUDICIAL OVERREACH, AND HE

VOWS TO BRING THE CASE TO

THE SUPREME COURT IF

NECESSARY.

GEORGE THOMAS HAS THE

DETAILS.

George: SPEAKING TO

SUPPORTERS AT A CAMPAIGN

RALLY AND NASHVILLE,

PRESIDENT TRUMP SAYS A

JUDGE'S DECISION IN HAWAII

TO HALT HIS NEWLY REVISED

TRAVEL BAN MAKES THE

COUNTRY LOOK WEAK AND THAT

HE IS WORKING TO PROTECT

AMERICANS.

President Trump:

WE'RE GOING TO FIGHT THIS

TERRIBLE RULING.

WE'RE GOING TO TAKE OUR

CASE AS FAR AS IT NEEDS TO

GO, INCLUDING ALL THE WAY

UP TO THE SUPREME COURT.

[APPLAUSE]

President Trump:

WE'RE GOING TO WIN.

WE'RE GOING TO KEEP OUR

CITIZENS SAFE.

George: CALLING IT A

WATERED-DOWN VERSION OF

HIS ORIGINAL ORDER, THE

PRESIDENT SAYS HIS

DECISION TO TEMPORARILY

STOP PEOPLE FROM SIX

TERROR-PRONE NATIONS FROM

COMING TO THIS COUNTRY IS

ABOUT NATIONAL SECURITY,

NOT DISCRIMINATION.

President Trump: THE

BEST WAY TO KEEP FOREIGN

TERRORISTS, OR AS SOME

PEOPLE WOULD SAY IN

CERTAIN INSTANCES,

RECALLED ISLAMIC

TERRORISTS FROM ATTACKING

OUR COUNTRY, IS TO STOP

THEM FROM ENTERING OUR

COUNTRY IN THE FIRST

PLACE.

George: BUT THE JUDGE

DISAGREED, SAYING THAT THE

NEW BAN DISCRIMINATES ON

THE BASIS OF NATIONALITY

AND RELIGION, AND CITED,

AMONG OTHER EXAMPLES,

PRESIDENT TRUMP'S

JANUARY 27t 27th INTERVIEW

WITH CBN'S DAVID BRODY IN

WHICH HE DISCUSSED THE

NEED TO PROTECT CHRISTIANS

IN THE MIDDLE EAST.

President Trump: IF

YOU WERE A CHRISTIAN IN

SYRIA, IT WAS VERY, VERY

TOUGH TO GET INTO THE

UNITED STATES.

IF YOU'RE A MUSLIM, YOU

CAN COME IN.

BUT IF YOU'RE A CHRISTIAN,

IT WAS ALMOST IMPOSSIBLE.

THE REASON THAT WAS SO

UNFAIR IS THAT --

EVERYBODY WAS PERSECUTED,

IN ALL FAIRNESS, THEY WERE

CHOPPING OFF THE HEADS OF

EVERYBODY, BUT MORE SO THE

CHRISTIANS.

AND I THOUGHT IT WAS VERY,

VERY UNFAIR.

SO WE ARE GOING TO HELP

THEM.

George: THE JUDGE'S

RULING BLOCKED THE UPDATED

EXECUTIVE ORDER JUST HOURS

BEFORE IT WAS TO TAKE

EFFECT.

MEANWHILE, THE BATTLE OVER

HEALTH CARE CONTINUES AS

THE PRESIDENT AND

REPUBLICAN LAWMAKERS TRY

TO CONVINCE SOME MEMBERS

OF THEIR OWN PARTY AND THE

PUBLIC THAT THEIR

PROPOSALS ARE GOOD FOR THE

COUNTRY.

AS TRUMP SAYS, IT IS TIME

TO GET RID OF THE FAILING

OBAMACARE SYSTEM.

WE WILL END THIS

NIGHTMARE AND PUT IN PLACE

REFORMS THAT ACTUALLY

IMPROVE PEOPLE'S LIVES.

George: THE PLAN

FACES A BIG TEST TODAY

WHEN THE HOUSE BUDGET

COMMITTEE DEALS WITH THE

LEGISLATION.

SOME REPUBLICANS HAVE BEEN

UNHAPPY WITH THE NEW BILL,

CALLING IT OBAMACARE

LIGHT, ARGUING THAT IT

DOESN'T GO FAR ENOUGH TO

UNDO OBAMACARE, BUT

SUPPORTERS SAY IT IS ONLY

THE FIRST STEP ON THE PATH

TO FIRST REPEALING AND

THEN COMPLETELY REPLACING

OBAMACARE.

THE PRESIDENT SAYS HE IS

OPEN TO DEBATE AND

NEGOTIATION TO MAKE SURE

THEY GET THE BEST PLAN FOR

THE AMERICAN PEOPLE.

AND MORE NEGOTIATIONS ARE

SURE TO COME IN THE DAYS

AHEAD.

GEORGE THOMAS, CBN NEWS.

Efrem: NIKKI HALEY

REBUKED THE UNITED NATIONS

AFTER IT RELEASED A REPORT

CALLING ISRAEL A RACIST

AND APARTHEID STATE.

NIKKI HALEY CALLS THE

REPORT ANTI-ISRAEL

PROPAGANDA, AND SAYS THE

UNITED STATES STANDS WITH

OUR ALLY ISRAEL, AND WILL

CONTINUE TO OPPOSE BIAS

AND ANTI-ISRAEL ACTIONS

ACROSS THE U.N. SYSTEM AND

AROUND THE WORLD.

FOR MORE ON THIS STORY,

SIMPLY HEAD TO

cbnnews.com.

> THIS YEAR WE HAVE SEEN

A LOT OF HEADLINES ABOUT

LIBERAL PROTESTS AT

REPUBLICAN TOWNHALLS

AROUND THE COUNTRY.

IT BRINGS TO MIND THE TEA

PARTY UPRISING OF 2010.

BUT WHERE IS THE TEA PARTY

TODAY?

DAVID BRODY REPORTS NOW

FROM WASHINGTON.

YOU MAY BE SURPRISED WITH

THE ANSWER.

David: THE BIG TEA

PARTY RALLY FROM YEARS AGO

MAY BE GONE, BUT THE TEA

PARTY ITSELF IS NOT.

NONOWADAYS IT TAKES

DIFFERENT FORMS.

SENATOR TED CRUZ.

David: THIS WEEK ON

CAPITOL HILL, HUNDREDS OF

PATRIOTS CAME TO

WASHINGTON.

THEY'RE NOT HAPPY WITH

REPUBLICAN LEADERS AS THEY

PUSH CONGRESS TO MAKE SURE

THE G.O.P.'S OBAMACARE

REPEAL AND REPLACE PLAN

GETS DONE THE WAY IT

SHOULD.

IF REPUBLICANS TAKE

THIS OPPORTUNITY AND BLOW

IT, WE WILL RIGHTLY BE

CONSIDERED A LAUGHING

STOCK.

THE LEADERSHIP IN THE

HOUSE IS WEAK-KNEED, AND

THEY ARE AFRAID TO LEAD

WITH FREEDOM AND

CAPITALISM, SO THEY'RE

GIVING YOU SOMETHING THAT

IS HALF AS MUCH AS

OBAMACARE BUT DOESN'T FIX

THE PROBLEM.

David: THE TEA PARTY

TRANSITION OVER THE YEARS

HAS THREE DIFFERENT

COMPONENTS.

MOST TEA PARTY GROUPS ARE

TRYING TO AFFECT CHANGE AT

THE LOCAL LEVEL.

THE SECOND COMPONENT IS

HAPPENING RIGHT HERE IN

WASHINGTON, WHERE THE TEA

PARTY STARS OF 2010 ARE

NOW THE NATIONAL POLITICAL

PLAYERS ON THE SCENE RIGHT

HERE IN D.C.

SENATORS LIKE TED CRUZ,

RAND PAUL, MARCO RUBIO AND

MIKE REED WERE ALL POWERED

INTO OFFICE BY THE TEA

PARTY MOVEMENT, AND DONALD

TRUMP'S OUTSIDER "DRAIN

THE SWAMP" IMAGE PLAYED

WELL WITH TEA PARTIERS,

TOO.

THE TWO REPUBLICANS WHO

CAME CLOSEST TO WIN THE

PRESIDENCY WERE CRUZ AND

TRUMP.

David: AND THERE IS

A THIRD AND FINAL

COMPONENT TO THE TEA PARTY

APPEARANCE NOWADAYS,

THEY'RE LOOKING A LOT MORE

LIKE PRO-TRUMP EVENTS.

HE IS MY MAN.

David: CLOAKED IN

GOOD OLD-FASHIONED

PATRIOTISM.

THEY'RE NOW CALLED "SPIRIT

OF AMERICA" RALLIES, AND

THEY'RE POPPING UP ALL

OVER AMERICA WITH A

MESSAGE: THE TEA PARTY

WILL NOT BE SILENT.

WE ARE THAT VOICE.

WE ARE THAT SILENT

MAJORITY.

AND WE SUPPORT DONALD

TRUMP.

THE TRUMP VOTERS, A LOT

OF THOSE WERE TEA PARTY

VOTERS, EVANGELICALS, AND

THEY WERE NEW KIND OF TEA

PARTY PEOPLE COMING OUT OF

BLUE COLOR, IRON-BELT

AMERICA, UNION WORKERS WHO

WERE JUST TIRED OF THE

BOLOGNA THAT WASHINGTON

WAS GIVING THEM, AND THEY

THOUGHT MAYBE TRUMP HAD

THE POWER TO KICK DOWN

SOME DOORS AND MAKE

GOVERNMENT WORK FOR THEM.

David: THE TEA

PARTY'S DOOR-KICKING DAYS

ARE NOT OVER AT ALL.

THE HEADLINES ARE ALL

ABOUT THOSE LIBERAL

PROTESTS AT G.O.P.

TOWNHALLS.

THE MAIN STREET MEDIA

WANTS TO COMPARE THIS

MOVEMENT TO THE TEA PARTY.

DEMINTS SAYS IT IS NIGHT

AND DAY, ARGUING THAT THE

TEA PARTY WAS ORGANICALLY

MOTIVATED, UNLIKE THESE

CURRENT EVENTS.

WHAT YOU SEE WITH THIS

GROUP ON THE LEFT, IT IS

WELL ORGANIZED, AND

WELL-FINANCED, AND A LOT

OF IT IS GEORGE SORES

FUNDED.

David: THAT LIBERAL

MEGA PHONE HAS DEEP

POCKETS, AND WHILE THE TEA

PARTY'S MEGA PHONE ISN'T

RICH, IT IS RICH

SPIRITUALLY, AND FORMING

RIGHT BEFORE OUR EYES.

Efrem: SNOWSTORM

CLEANUP IS UNDER WAY.

IN THE NORTHEAST, SOME

PARTS OF NEW YORK CITY GOT

ABOUT SEVEN INCHES OF

SNOW.

THEY PREDICTED THE CITY

WOULD GET CLOSER TO

18 INCHES.

BUT NEW ENGLAND SAW ABOUT

30 INCHES OF SNOW.

AT LEAST 200,000 HOMES

LOST POWER ACROSS THE

NORTHEAST, AND MORE THAN

6,000 FLIGHTS WERE

CANCELLED.

> COMING UP, HOW HELP

AND HOPE CAME TO THE

NEGLECTED RESIDENTS TO AN

ISLAND IN THE INDIAN

OCEAN.

OCEAN.

Efrem: TURNING NOW TO

IRAQ, THE BATTLE TO DRIVE

ISIS FROM WESTERN MOSUL

CONTINUES, AND NEW IRAQI

AND U.S. COALITION FORCES

SAY THEY HAVE THE TERROR

GROUP SURROUNDED.

THERE IS NO WAY IN OR OUT

OF IRAQ'S SECOND LARGEST

CITY.

50,000 PEOPLE HAVE FLED

MOSUL IN THE PAST MONTH.

750,000 REMAIN, AND ISIS

FIGHTERS ARE USING MANY OF

THEM AS HUMAN SHIELDS.

THOSE WHO HAVE ESCAPED THE

CLUTCHES OF THE ISLAMIC

STATE SAY THE GROUP

WITHHELD FOOD FROM THEM,

LIKE SUGAR, RICE, AND

COOKING OIL.

IT RAISES THE QUESTION:

WILL ISLAMIC STATE TERROR

DISAPPEAR ONCE ISIS IS

DRIVEN FROM IRAQ AND

SERIASYRIA.

ISIS PLANS TO RESUME

SUICIDE BOMBINGS IN IRAQ

AND ACTIVATE JIHADIST

TERROR CELLS IN THE WEST.

> THOUSANDS OF MUSLIMS

ARE LEAVING BEHIND ALLAH

AND CHOOSING JESUS.

BANGLADESH IS THE FOURTH

LARGEST MUSLIM NATION IN

THE WORLD.

MORE THAN 20,000 MUSLIMS

HAVE CONVERTED TO

CHRISTIANITY IN THE LAST

TWO YEARS.

PEOPLE ARE CONVERTING SO

QUICKLY, ONE DAY IT COULD

BECOME A CHRISTIAN NATION.

WE SPEAK TO CHRISTIAN

FREEDOM INTERNATIONAL TO

TALK MORE ABOUT THE

SITUATION.

IF BANGLADESH IS ON THE

PATH TO BECOMING A

CHRISTIAN NATION IN OUR

LIFETIME -- BECAUSE YOU

SEE IT GROWING, HOUSE

CHURCHES, WHERE ONE PASTOR

IS PASTORING FIVE OR SIX

CHURCHES.

ONE PASTOR USED TO BE A

POLICE OFFICER, AND HE

TOLD ME IN THE HILLSIDE

AREAS, THAT OVER THE PAST

TWO YEARS SOME 20,000

MUSLIMS HAVE CONVERTED TO

CHRISTIANITY.

AND THAT'S JUST ONE

EXAMPLE, ONE STORY, ONE

TESTIMONY.

SO SOMETHING IS GOING ON,

AND, AGAIN, IT IS LIKE A

WILDFIRE.

Efrem: JACOBSON ADDED

MANY CONVERTS FACE VIOLENT

PERSECUTION AND REJECTION

FROM THEIR FAMILIES, BUT

SAY THEY REFUSE TO GIVE UP

THEIR NEW FAITH.

> CHRISTIAN MISSIONARIES

TRAVEL TWO THE FOUR

CORNERS OF THE WORLD TO

SPREAD THE GOSPEL.

MANY PLACES ARE SIMPLY

DOTS ON THE MAP THAT BE

CAN VIRTUALLY

INACCESSIBLE.

BUT SOME PLACES ARE NOW

JUST AN AIRPLANE RIDE

AWAY, THAT IS IF YOU HAVE

A PLACE TO LAND.

DAVID MIMM SHOWS US HOW

ONE CHRISTIAN GROUP MADE

THAT HAPPEN, AND HOW ONE

CHRISTIAN GROUP CAME TO

VISIT.

Reporter:

MISSIONARIES CAME TO THIS

VILLAGE IN INDONESIA.

WHAT'S YOUR GOAL?

OUR GOAL IS TO FIND A

CHURCH TO REACH OUT TO THE

REST OF THE PEOPLE.

Reporter: FIRST THEY

NEEDED TO GET THE MOANA

MISSIONARIES HERE.

FIRST, THEY NEEDED AN AIR

STRIP.

TWO YEARS OF WORK TO

GET THIS THING DONE, AND

TO SEE THE PLANE CIRCLING

BY THE FIRST TIME, IT IS

SURREAL.

IT IS LIKE, IT'S

HAPPENING.

YOU FEEL THE EMOTIONS.

IT IS SO COOL TO HAVE AN

AIRPLANE LAND AND

TOUCHDOWN.

[CHEERING]

Reporter: THE PLANE

BELONGS TO MISSION

AVIATION FELLOWSHIP.

THEY SERVE PEOPLE LIVING

IN I'S LATEED AREAS WHERE

TRANSPORTATION OR

COMMUNICATION IS

DIFFICULT.

THEY ARE ABLE TO WORK WITH

1500 CHURCHES, HEALTH CARE

ORGANIZATIONS, RELIEF

AGENCIES, AND MISSION

GROUPS.

THEY DELIVER BIBLE

TRANSLATION TEAMS.

WE'RE HERE TO CELEBRATE

THE FINISHING OF THE

COMPLETE BIBLE IN THE

HOOPLA LANGUAGE.

THIS IS IT.

THIS IS EXCITING FOR US.

WE HAVE BEEN PARTNERING

WITH THE MISSIONARIES WHO

HAVE BEEN WORKING TO

TRANSLATE THIS FOR YEARS

AND YEARS AND YEARS.

Reporter: THEY FLY

MERCY MISSIONS.

THIS IS MIA.

MIA WAS CLIMBING IN SOME

TREES YESTERDAY WITH SOME

OTHER KIDS, AND HE FELL

AND A BRANCH EMPALED HIS

ABDOMEN.

A MAN THAT WAS THERE

FINALLY NOTICED HIM AND

PULLED THAT BRANCH OUT AND

RAN TO OUR HOUSE.

WE COULD FEEL THE PIECE OF

WOOD IN THERE, ABOUT AN

INCH, INCH AND A HALF

LONG.

Reporter: A FRANTIC

CALL FOR HELP WAS PLACED

BY SHORT WAVE RADIO.

LORD, WE PRAY THAT THE

INFECTION HASN'T SET IN

AND THAT THE DOCTOR CAN

QUICKLY TAKE CARE OF THE

ISSUES, AND HE AND THE

FAMILY CAN COME BACK HERE

QUICKLY.

WE PUT THESE THINGS IN

YOUR HANDS.

AMEN.

Reporter: MIA AND HIS

FAMILY WERE FLOWN TO A

HOSPITAL, WHERE DOCTORS

FOUND THE WOOD HAD PIERCED

BOTH INTESTINE WALLS.

HE WAS RUSHED TO SURGERY.

IN LESS THAN A WEEK, HE

WAS HOME.

IF THE WOOD STAYED IN

THERE ANY LONGER, IT COULD

HAVE CAUSED AN INFECTION.

Reporter: REMEMBER

THAT AIR STRIP WE TALKED

ABOUT EARLIER?

WELL, IT IS USED TO FLY

NEWLY TRAIN MISSIONARIES

TO OTHER PARTS OF THE

ISLAND TO SHARE THE WORD.

THESE ARE MY TWO GOOD

FRIENDS, FROM OUR HOME

VILLAGE IN MOANA.

AND NOW THEY'RE DOWN HERE

SHARING THE TEACHINGS, THE

GOOD NEWS, TO SOME OF

THEIR RELATIVES THAT LIVE

DOWN HERE.

Reporter: EACH YEAR

THEY SERVE MORE THAN 600

NON-PROFITS, LOCAL

GOVERNMENTS, AND MISSION

ORGANIZATIONS ALL OVER THE

WORLD.

THEY ENABLE MINISTRIES TO

PROVIDE ISOLATED PEOPLE

WITH VITAL SERVICES AND

GOODS, WHILE SHARING THE

LOVE OF CHRIST IN A

TANGIBLE WAY.

SOME CALL THEM GOD'S AIR

FORCE.

I'M DAVID NIMM, CBN NEWS.

Efrem: UP NEXT,

WHETHER THEY'RE LIBERAL OR

CONSERVATIVES, THE MEMBERS

OF THE SUPREME COURT HAVE

THIS ONE THING IN COMMON.

YOU'LL SEE WHAT IT IS AND

WHY IT MAY BE HURTING THE

REST OF AMERICA.

Efrem: THE SUPREME

COURT INCLUDES MEN AND

WOMEN, PEOPLE OF DIFFERENT

RACES AND RELIGIONS, BUT

THEY DO HAVE ONE THING IN

COMMON: THEY ALL GRADUATED

FROM THE SAME TWO LAW

SCHOOLS.

CAITLIN BURKE HAS THIS

STORY.

Caitlin: WHEN IT

COMES TO CHOOSING A

SUPREME COURT NOMINEE, THE

CONSTITUTION DOESN'T

INCLUDE ANY CHECK LIST FOR

QUALIFICATIONS.

NO GUIDANCE ON AGE,

BIRTHPLACE, OR EDUCATION.

WHAT SHOULD MATTER IS

YOUR APPROACH TO JUDGING,

AND WHETHER YOU'RE GOING

TO INTERPRET THE LAW WITH

FIDELITY AND APPLY IT

EQUAL TO ALL PEOPLE.

Caitlin: STILL, MOST

HIGH-COURT RESUMES INCLUDE

AN UNSPOKEN QUALIFICATION,

AND THAT INCLUDES NOMINEE

NEIL GORSUCH.

HARVARD AND YALE GRADUATES

DOMINATE THE SUPREME COURT

NOW AND HAVE A HISTORY OF

DOING SO, RAISING

QUESTIONS ABOUT WHETHER

HAVING A DIPLOMA FROM ONE

OF THE NATION'S TOP TWO

LAW SCHOOLS IS A

PREREQUISITE TO THE JOB.

THESE ARE TWO EXCELLENT

LAW SCHOOLS, AND GRADUATES

FROM THOSE LAW SCHOOLS

TEND TO GO ON AND HAVE

DISTINGUISHED CARRIERS.

Caitlin: LAST YEAR HE

WROTE ABOUT THE SUPREME

COURT VACANCY AND

SUGGESTED EIGHT CANDIDATES

TO REPLACE ANTONIN SCALIA.

IT WAS A DIVERSE LIST,

INCLUDING NAMES FROM A

WIDE RANGE OF LAW SCHOOLS

AND CAREER PATHS.

I THINK THAT THE

PRESIDENT SHOULD CAST A

WIDE NET IN TERMS OF

LOOKING FOR QUALIFIED MEN

AND WOMEN.

Caitlin: FIVE OF HIS

RECOMMENDATIONS ENDED UP

ON PRESIDENT TRUMP'S SHORT

LIST.

IN THE END, HE NOMINATED

GORSUCH, A HARVARD GRAD,

WHO IF CONFIRMED,

CONTINUES THE IVY LEAGUE

DOMINATION.

SOME QUESTION IF THEY CAN

REPRESENT THE AMERICAN

PEOPLE, HAVING LITTLE IN

COMMON WITH THEM.

MALCOLM SAYS YES,

PRIMARILY BECAUSE THEY'RE

MEANT TO REFLECT THE

CONSTITUTION, NOT THE

PUBLIC.

IT IS NOT CRITICAL TO

THE TASK OF JUDGING, IF

WHAT YOU'RE DOING IS

TRYING TO FIGURE OUT A

LAW'S MEANING.

Caitlin: BUT THIS

AUTHOR SAYS JUDGES OFTEN

BRING WITH THEM MORE THAN

JUST A KNOWLEDGE OF THE

CONSTITUTION.

THE JUSTICES ARE VERY

SMART PEOPLE.

AND THEIR OFFICIAL JOB IS

TO INTERPRET THE

CONSTITUTION.

SO IN THEORY, IT'S A, YOU

KNOW, TECHNICAL JOB.

BUT IN PRACTICE, PEOPLE

BRING LIFE EXPERIENCE TO

IT.

IDEOLOGICAL INCLINATION.

Reporter: LEMANN ALSO

POINTS OUT EVEN WHEN

DISAGREEING, CURRENT

JUSTICES REASON IN SIMILAR

WAYS BECAUSE OF THEIR

ACADEMIC CULTURES.

IN ORDER TO FIND A

DIFFERENT CULTURE, WE

WOULD NEED TO GO BACK TO

1981, WHEN PRESIDENT

REAGAN NOMINATED SANDRA

DAY O'CONNOR, A

CONGRATULATE OF STANFORD.

SINCE THEN, IT HAS BEEN

ALL HARVARD AND YALE.

IT IS KIND OF AN

ENCLOSED WORLD WHERE

EVERYBODY HAS A RESUME

THAT LOOKS PRETTY MUCH THE

SAME.

AND THEY TEND TO LOOK FOR

PEOPLE LIKE THEMSELVES TO,

YOU KNOW, REPLENISH THE

RANKS.

Caitlin: IN FACT,

JUDGES PRETTY MUCH TRAVEL

A SIMILAR PATH TO MAKE IT

TO THE HIGH COURT.

HERE IS A LOOK AT HOW THEY

MIGHT GO DOWN THAT ROAD.

FIRST YOU WOULD GET A

DEGREE FROM ONLY HARVARD

OR YALE.

YOUR NEXT STOP WOULD BE AS

A LAW CLERK, FOLLOWED BY

TIME IN GOVERNMENT

SERVICE.

FOLLOW THAT UP WITH A

STINT TEACHING AT A

PRESTIGIOUS LAW SCHOOL,

AND FINALLY WORK AS A

LOWER COURT FEDERAL JUDGE.

IT IS BEST TO AVOID TAKING

A JOB AT POLITICAL

ORGANIZATIONS LIKE THE

ACLU OR AS A LEGAL AID

LAWYER.

RUTH BADER GINSBURG WORKED

AS A WOMEN'S RIGHT LAWYER

FOR THE ACLU BEFORE HER

NOMINATION TO THE FEDERAL

BANK.

SHE SAID THAT ACLU

CONNECTION WOULD PROBABLY

DISQUALIFY HER IF SHE WERE

PUT BEFORE THE SUPREME

COURT TODAY.

AND JUSTICE CLARENCE

THOMAS POINTED OUT THAT NO

MEMBER OF THE SUPREME

COURT COMES FROM THE

HEARTLAND OF AMERICA.

IT SEEMS THAT THAT'S

WHY PRESIDENT TRUMP PICKED

NEIL GORSUCH TO BE HIS

FIRST SUPREME COURT NO,

MA'AM.

IT IS NOT SPECIFICALLY

NOMINEE, NOT THAT HE WENT

TO AN IVY LEAGUE SCHOOL,

BUT THAT HE WOULD HAVE AN

EASIER TIME IN THE

CONFIRMATION PROCESS.

Caitlin: PRESIDENT

TRUMP COULD CHOOSE ONE OF

THE OTHER FINALISTS FROM

HIS RECENT SELECTION.

JUDGE THOMAS HARDIMAN,

WHO'S LAW DEGREE COMES

FROM GEORGETOWN UNIVERSITY

IN WASHINGTON, D.C.

THOSE CHOICES OR POSSIBLY

EVEN ANOTHER COULD GIVE

THE SUPREME COURT A NEW

DIVERSITY OF EXPERIENCE,

BRINGING IN A JUSTICE FROM

OUTSIDE THE HALLS OF

HARVARD OR YALE AND FROM A

DIFFERENT PART OF AMERICA.

CAITLIN BURKE, CBN NEWS,
