Record-setting snowfall kills 75,000 cows... but the media is silent

Late last week, portions of the Great Plains were buried by a record snowfall that will more than likely have a huge impact on your wallet, but the media has been all but silent.

“Okay. I want to tell you another story, and this story is one that… I don't think anybody in the national media has told,” Glenn said on radio this morning. “I got an urgent tweet. This woman tweeted like six times. And she was like, ‘We need help. We need help.’ They're calling it now the blizzard that never happened.”

TheBlaze reports:

Ranchers are still digging out thousands of their cattle that became buried in a record-setting snowstorm in South Dakota late last week and over the weekend.

One would think the death of 75,000 cows by upwards of five feet of snow might get some national attention, but as one blogger observed, it has taken some time for the news of the precipitation massacre to reach outside of local media.

Early estimates suggest western South Dakota lost at least 5 percent of its cattle, said Silvia Christen, executive director of the South Dakota Stockgrowers Association. Some individual ranchers reported losses of 20 percent to 50 percent of their livestock, Christen said. The storm killed calves that were due to be sold soon as well as cows that would produce next year’s calves in an area where livestock production is a big part of the economy, she said.

“This is, from an economic standpoint, something we’re going to feel for a couple of years,” Christen said.

A fierce snowstorm rolled out of the Rocky Mountains last Friday with devastating effects. Trees were downed, state offices closed, and more than 200 miles of Interstate 90 across Wyoming and South Dakota was completely closed. Much of the area is still without power.

“Everything that could go wrong in a storm went wrong in this storm,” Glenn said. “Mercury One is trying to figure out how we can even get resources up to help them, what we can do to help them, but parts of the state are just completely out.”

Typically when we see a weather event of this magnitude – whether it be a tornado, hurricane, or blizzard – the national media pays attention. But so far there has been little to know coverage of this disaster.

“We did a LexisNexis search. No one has covered this. We found out about it, again, because somebody – I don't even know her story, if she lived there or somebody that she knows lived there and got the information out and tweeted it and said, ‘Please, Glenn, they need help. Somebody needs to report on this,’” Glenn explained. “A week after this snowstorm, no mentions of it at all in any national media. None.”

So why the silence? Glenn had a few theories.

“I think it's a combination of three things. I think that does play a role, that it is against the global warming thing,” Glenn said. “Two, there's a lot to cover on the news that is about Washington, everything that's going on in about Washington. Three, the news departments don't have any resources out there. So you have to fly in a news crew and everything is closed… You don't have any resources necessarily out there. I find that a very weak excuse for the networks at least.”

“Here's what you need to know about this: 75,000 cattle. You may say you don't care about it. Oh, you will when you see the price of hamburger in the next few months because all of these cows that would have gone to your plate are now dead,” he continued. “These are farmers. These are the best of the best. These are people that are the backbone and always have been the backbone of our country. These are the people that are feeding you.”

There are new curriculum standards being implemented into schools throughout the nation for health classes that not only go far beyond what's appropriate for young children, but are entrenched in clear political biases, too. Under the standards, third-graders are taught about hormone blockers and endless gender identities, and topics get shockingly graphic for kids as young as 11. Some schools are even teaching their teachers and kids to ignore what parents have to say about these topics. And the worst part may be that many parents are completely unaware what their children are being taught.

Tina Descovich, co-founder of Moms for Liberty, joined "The Glenn Beck Program" to explain exactly what you can ask at your next school board meeting to ensure this "horrifying" curriculum isn't being taught in your kid's school.

It should come as no surprise that a newsworthy story receives more media coverage when released on a Monday than a Friday. The reason is in part due to a large number of news-consuming Americans checking out for the week to focus on their weekend plans rather than the news.

On Monday's radio program, Glenn Beck shared information that President Joe Biden decided to release on Friday — when fewer people would notice — regarding the Climate Finance report. This report is marketed to Americans as "A Roadmap To Build a Climate-Resilient Economy." But Glenn believes the report to be Biden's Great Reset warning shot to banks.

In this clip, Glenn warned that if Americans don't stand together, in eight years we all indeed will own nothing. Watch the clip for the full story. Can't watch? Download the podcast here.

On today's radio program, Glenn Beck was joined by Bill O'Reilly to discuss the top stories of the week.

For O'Reilly, the biggest story this week centered around someone mysteriously missing from mainstream media news reports today: Mark Zuckerberg. Specifically, O'Reilly said it's the 'scandalous' way the Facebook CEO spent nearly $420 million to influence the 2020 election — and did so successfully.

On Thursday's radio program, Grace Smith and her father, Andy, joined Glenn Beck on the phone and provided a first-hand account of Grace's refusal to wear a mask at school.

Smith, 16, began a maskless protest after her school district in Laramie, Wyoming, decided to implement a mask mandate. As a result, Grace received three suspensions, was issued two $500-citations, and was eventually arrested.

"How long were you in jail?" Glenn asked.

Grace said was taken to jail but was never booked nor was she was placed in a jail cell.

Glenn commended Grace's father, Andy, for raising such a "great citizen" and asked if it was Grace's idea to protest. Andy said it was Grace's idea, explaining that they took the position of arguing on the grounds of civil rights rather than the efficacy of wearing a mask.

Grace has since withdrawn from public school and started a home school program. She also told Glenn that she will continue to fight the school district, legally.
