Beck family went "off the grid" over the 4th of July

Glenn and his family went "off the grid" over the 4th of July week, heading to a farm in the middle of the country without internet, television, or cell phone service. How were they able to survive?

"Barely came back from vacation. We went up to some farmland and we herded cattle, we rode horses. I'm going back up in a couple of weeks and we'll have chickens and lambs," Glenn said.

"I contend that the problem with our society is that we have gotten away from cows. We have gotten away from nature. We've gotten away from the farmlands," he explained.

"I contend that because we've gotten away from the farms, we no longer see nature in practice. We never see. My son doesn't understand. He saw something naturally happening in front of him. Instead, what we see off the farm, what we see in our cities, what we see in our schools, what we see every night spilling into our houses is what we think is natural on television, which is completely unnatural. We see all these TV shows and everything else that are not real. They're not based in anything that's real."

"Because we've gotten away from nature and we are just taking other people's words for it, we also are for things like green energy. That's the biggest pile of bullcrap I've ever seen, and I have been ‑‑ I've spent ten days with bullcrap. Not all the actual bullcrap, but the wind‑power and solar power. We have a farm that is off the grid and it's wind‑power and solar power. That's bullcrap."

Glenn explained that the solar and wind power was not enough to keep the electricity on the farm running. Even the small refrigerator, powered by propane, could only get to fifty-one degrees.

"If we still lived down on the farm and we would listen to people who were actually using it, well, then we'd know it's a pile of crap. It's nice to augment, but by Thursday of last week, we just had the generators running the whole time."

Stu added, "When countries try to implement this sort of power in a large sense, that's exactly what happens. The wind‑power isn't running all the time, the solar power obviously at night isn't running all the time and they have to augment it with good old fossil fuel."

Pat said, "If solar worked great, we would all be fine with solar. That would be great."

"We've just disconnected from reality and sanity because we're so far away from it," Glenn said.

"You know, I went to church yesterday in this small town. There's about 400 people who live in this town. I think about 390 of them, I haven't met all of them, but I bet about 390 of them I would wish I could be. The people that I met were all rock solid people and they're the people that honestly that if you go to New York, they are the people that on, you know, Central Park would make fun of, mocking. Mock them. Guarantee it. Guarantee it. Because they're all people that work with a tractor. They're all people that really work for a living. You never think you work for a living? I mean, I played on a tractor last week. I played on it. I didn't work. I mean, yeah, I herded some cattle. Really? And if it didn't work, I could call somebody and go, 'The cattle won't listen to me. Can you come get them?'" Glenn said.

"These are people who actually work for a living. And it's because of that, their children are different," Glenn said.

"I saw a difference in my children within three days. Within three days. No Internet, no television, no phones, no texting. Unfortunately no electricity, which kind of made the ice cream a little soggy. That one we have to fix. The rest of it... they change. We've changed as a culture because we no longer see nature in action. And when you see nature in action, you see the patterns of life. Because we're no longer close to anything that's not ‑‑ that you don't plug in, we don't see the patterns in life, we don't see the pattern of the family in life. And the more we plug in, the more we tune out and the weaker we become as people."

"Go find yourself some farmland. Go vacation. In some town that you probably would have made fun of when you were a kid. This is exactly the kind of town that I would have made fun of as a kid. This is exactly the kind of town that I would say no way that I would ever live there or want to live there. I do now."

Everything comes down to the two Senate runoffs in Georgia. If we lose both races, we lose the country. Democrats know this and are pouring in millions to usher in a Marxist agenda.

As the Left tries to hide how radical the two candidates really are, Glenn takes us inside the Democrat war room to expose the wolf in pastor's clothing, Raphael Warnock, and America's Justin Trudeau, Jon Ossoff. Socialism, the Green New Deal, and "defund the police" are all on the table. And Glenn warns of what's to come if conservatives don't activate: Chuck Schumer will weaponize the Senate, and the radical Left will launch an all-out assault to ravage the Constitution.

Sen. Ted Cruz (R-Texas) joined the "Glenn Beck Radio Program" to explain how mail-in ballots are typically disqualified during recounts at a far higher rate than in-person, Election Day ballots, and why this is "good news" for President Donald Trump's legal battle over the election.

"One of the things that gives the greatest cause for optimism is, this election ... there's a pretty marked disparity in terms of how the votes were distributed. On Election Day, with in-person voting, Donald Trump won a significant majority of the votes cast on in-person voting on Election Day. Of mail-in voting, Joe Biden won a significant majority of the votes cast early on mail-in voting," Cruz explained.

"Now, here's the good news: If you look historically to recounts, if you look historically to election litigation, the votes cast in person on Election Day tend to stand. It's sort of hard to screw that up. Those votes are generally legal, and they're not set aside. Mail-in votes historically have a much higher rate of rejection … when they're examined, there are a whole series of legal requirements that vary state by state, but mail-in votes consistently have a higher rate of rejection, which suggests that as these votes begin being examined and subjected to scrutiny, that you're going to see Joe Biden's vote tallies go down. That's a good thing," he added. "The challenge is, for President Trump to prevail, he's got to run the table. He's got to win, not just in one state but in several states. That makes it a lot harder to prevail in the litigation. I hope that he does so, but it is a real challenge and we shouldn't try to convince ourselves otherwise."

Fox News senior meteorologist Janice Dean is perhaps even more disgusted with New York Gov. Andrew Cuomo (D) for his coronavirus response than BlazeTV's Stu Burguiere (read what Stu has to say on the subject here), and for a good reason.

She lost both of her in-laws to COVID-19 in New York's nursing homes after Gov. Cuomo's infamous nursing home mandate, which Cuomo has since had scrubbed from the state's website and blamed everyone from the New York Post to nursing care workers to (every leftist's favorite scapegoat) President Donald Trump.

Janice joined Glenn and Stu on the "Glenn Beck Radio Program" Tuesday to ask why mainstream media is not holding Gov. Cuomo — who recently published a book about his leadership during the COVID-19 pandemic — accountable?

"I'm vocal because I have not seen the mainstream media ask these questions or demand accountability of their leaders. [Cuomo] really has been ruling with an iron fist, and every time he does get asked a question, he blames everybody else except the person that signed that order," Janice said.

"In my mind, he's profiting off the over 30 thousand New Yorkers, including my in-laws, that died by publishing a book on 'leadership' of New York," she added. "His order has helped kill thousands of relatives of New York state. And this is not political, Glenn. This is not about Republican or Democrat. My in-laws were registered Democrats. This is not about politics. This is about accountability for something that went wrong, and it's because of your [Cuomo's] leadership that we're put into this situation."

As America grows divided and afraid to disagree with the Democrats' woke plan for America, Megyn Kelly is ready to fight back for the truth. For nearly two decades, she navigated the volatile and broken world of the media. But as America leans on independent voices more than ever, she's breaking new ground with "The Megyn Kelly Show."

She joined the latest Glenn Beck Podcast to break down what's coming next after the election: Black Lives Matter is mainstream, leftists are making lists of Trump supporters, and the Hunter Biden scandal is on the back burner.

Megyn and Glenn reminisce about their cable news days (including her infamous run-in with then-presidential candidate Donald Trump) and to look into the chaotic and shady world of journalism and the growing entitlement it's bred. For example, many conservatives have been shocked by how Fox News handled the election.

Megyn defended Fox News, saying she believes Fox News' mission "is a good one," but also didn't hold back on hosts like Neil Cavuto, who cut off a White House briefing to fact check it — something she never would have done, even while covering President Obama.

Megyn also shared this insightful takeaway from her time at NBC: "Jane Fonda was an ass."
