Good Advice: Invest in farmland

Last night on TheBlaze TV, Jim Rogers gave a pretty bleak outlook on future of the U.S. economy. But there was a bright light for one small (and shrinking) portion of the population: the American farmer.

This morning, after recapping the plans the President laid out in his SOTU on Tuesday — spend, spend, and spend — Glenn spoke to his listeners about what the future looks like to him and one of the best investments he thinks Americans should consider looking into.

"What's the best investment you can make?" Glenn asked.

Glenn has talked about how he invests his money for years, always reminding his audience that what's best for him may not be right for you and your family. Among these investments is gold. But for the average family, the window on buy gold has closed. The price has risen well over 300% is the last five to ten years. But this morning, gold wasn't the commodity Glenn was focused on.

"I've told you for awhile that there were going to be food shortages. I've told you that food prices are going to go through the roof. I've told you that the average age of a farmer worldwide is 58. In ten years from now they're going to be nearing 70," he explained. "Who's replacing them? Who's studying farming?"

The answer is, not near as many people as the industry will probably need.

Most agricultural studies are focusing more on the environment than they are crop production.

"Who's going out and saying, 'Yeah, I need to learn about the soil because I'm going to be a farmer.  I'm going to own my own tractor and I'm going to start my own farm.'  Who does that?" Glenn asked. "Who grows up in a farming family and says, 'This is the life for me'?  The Amish?  And who else?"

Glenn and Jim Rogers discussed the direction of agriculture yesterday on radio:

"So who does it? Nobody. Nobody's doing it," Glenn said. "The real growth, if you are somebody who's thinking about going to college and you don't know what to do, go into farm studies."

If what Glenn's believes is going to happen to our currency does happen, the Wall Streeters of the next generation — maybe even of this generation — are going to be in a world of hurt.

"The farmers will be the ones who control the world," Glenn explained.

There is an article on TheBlaze.com right now that lays out what exactly is happening with the price of farmland in the U.S. It's clear why Glenn is encouraging more people to look into farming and farmland.

“Farm income and land values were boosted by high crop prices and high crop insurance payments. In North and South Dakota, land lease revenue increased thanks to the region’s energy deposits,” Business Insider notes.

“Bankers in the Corn Belt and Central Plains reported strong annual increases.  Meanwhile in Texas, where growing conditions were poor, farmland values increased a modest 2.6 percent year-over-year,” the report adds.

And that’s not all: For the remainder of FY2013, analysts expect farmland values to grow — and grow some more.

The report from TheBlaze explains that non-irrigated cropland in the United States is skyrocketing in value: Monatana is up 10%; Wyoming, Colorado, northern New Mexico, 18%; North Dakota, 30%; South Dakota, 30%; Nebraska, 30%; Kansas, 22%; Oklahoma 12%; Western Missouri, 22%; Iowa, 18%; Minnesota, 26.9%; Northern Illinois, 15%.; Northern Louisiana, 15%; Southern Wisconsin, 8%; Northern Indiana, 11%; and Texas farmland, 2.6%.

Glenn emphasized, "do not listen to me for investment advice, but also don't listen to anybody who refuses to think out of the box."

He reminded his audience that the people involved in investments they're making — retirement or otherwise — makes money by managing your stuff. They're incentivized to keep your money where it is. And while the stock market may go up, it's built on sand. At some point, because the value of the dollar is going down, you're going to pull your money out and it's not going to hold real value.

"I'd rather be able to grow my own food, thank you very much," Glenn said. "It's not for everybody but, boy, there's a great story on TheBlaze.com now on farmland.  What is happening with farmland?"

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."

The World Economic Forum isn't trying to hide its plans for the Great Reset. Details to "reset" the global economy have been published on its own website. Despite that and all the warning signs, many are still quick to refute this master plan as a "conspiracy theory" or as something that will never actually take hold. But as Glenn Beck explained on the radio program Monday, the Great Reset is happening right now in Europe. A huge new development for the Great Reset that could affect not only European businesses, but American ones as well. Businesses — and citizens — may be forced to comply sooner than you think.
