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."

Following President Joe Biden's first joint address to Congress, Glenn Beck joined fellow BlazeTV host and author of the new book, "American Marxism," Mark Levin to expose what they called the "Liar-In-Chief's" radical plans for our country and to explain why the far Left's proposals and programs are really a "frontal attack" on our Constitution, our country, and our way of life.

"Substantively, this is a frontal attack on our Constitutional system of limited government. It is a frontal attack on our capitalist system. He's basically throwing out all the bromides for the radical left groups that now form the base of the modern Democrat Party. And I make the case that ... this is Marxist bullcrap in its broadest sense," Levin stated.

"Here we are, a country now where one man can get up in the middle of the night and make a list of everything he wants to do to the country," he added, speaking figuratively. "It's like an unreality where we're living in separate worlds ... the whole thing is a fraud."

Watch the video clip below to hear Levin expose the lies and misinformation in Biden's speech and explain why he believes the true message is absolutely chilling for the future of our nation:

After months of delays and COVID-19 excuses, President Biden finally delivers his address to the joint session of Congress. It is a truly historic moment, as only a few hundred members of Congress received an invite. While some have compared this speech to JFK's moon landing challenge, it will likely be more like FDR's New Deal nightmare. Will Speaker Pelosi continue her tradition of ripping up the president's speech? Will VP Harris cackle to a quiet audience?

Glenn Beck teams up with fellow BlazeTV host Mark Levin, author of the new book "American Marxism," to take on the progressive plans that could completely transform our economy and our way of life. Steve Deace, BlazeTV host and author of "Faucian Bargain," joins to discuss why it's not enough for conservatives to just lament the dangerous Democrat agenda; we must activate against the woke infection of our institutions. Plus, a power panel to rival CNN talking heads: Stu Burguiere, BlazeTV host of "Stu Does America," and Jason Buttrill, head researcher and writer for Glenn Beck.

The less-than-favorable reaction to Caitlyn Jenner's bid for governor of California as a Republican has shown that leftists and so-called "transgender rights activist" care more about political party than actual transgender rights. Despite the fact that if she wins, Jenner would be the first trans governor in our nation's history — and prove that Republicans aren't 'transphobic' — Leftist activists would rather back Gavin Newsom — a cisgender, white male.

"Make no mistake: we can't wait to elect a #trans governor of California. But @Caitlyn_Jenner spent years telling the #LGBTQ+ community to trust Donald Trump. We saw how that turned out. Now she wants us to trust her? Hard pass," tweeted Equality California, one of the state's largest LGBTQ-rights groups.

"With all due respect, @Caitlyn_Jenner, you are running as a Republican?! Republicans deny your existence and are trying to erase trans youth. HELL NO," tweeted leftist activist and actress Alyssa Milano.

"Well done Caitlyn Jenner, running for governor wins you the one medal you never got: stupidest mother***ker on earth. Running as a Trump Republican & entering a world that hates you," tweeted "Sons of Anarchy" star Ron Perlman.

In this clip from the "Glenn Beck Radio Program," Glenn and producer Stu Burguiere discussed the Left's hostile reaction to Jenner's candidacy for California governor and agreed that leftist trans activists are showing themselves to be more "leftists" than "trans activists."

"If Caitlyn Jenner did, let's say, run for governor and win as a Republican, wouldn't that go a long way to advance what [trans rights activists'] goal supposedly is? Like, if you really believe Republicans hate trans people and what you want is for society to have trans people accepted more broadly, what better way to accomplish that than having a Republican trans candidate?" Stu asked.

"Yeah, see, but you just said the key words: 'If you really believe.' They don't really believe anything. I don't think they even really believe that Republicans hate gay people. I don't think they actually believe that. That's just a slogan that's been drilled in their head," Glenn said. "It doesn't have anything to do with race or gender, or really anything else. It has everything to do with politics. That's it."

The New York Times reported this week that U.S. Special Presidential Envoy for Climate and former Secretary of State, John Kerry, allegedly leaked classified Israeli military information to one of its biggest foes: Iran. So, where's the media outcry?

Donald Trump Jr. joined Glenn Beck on the radio program Tuesday to discuss the allegations against Kerry and the corporate media's blatant hypocrisy and the Left's double standards.

"It's sort of amazing what you can get away with if you're a Democrat," Trump Jr. said. "I would think, Glenn, these people would lose their minds if someone in the Trump administration did this."
