Attention, Grandparents: The Obama Administration wants you to teach your grandkids to eat healthier

Because they have nothing better to do, the United States Department of Agriculture (USDA) is now issuing helpful tips for grandparents to help ensure their grandkids maintain a healthy lifestyle. In a blog posted Monday morning entitled “Grandparents Help Kids Develop Good Eating Habits” the USDA offers advice to grandparents on how to encourage their grandkids to eat healthier. For instance, the USDA provides instructions to give children “hugs” instead of treats and read government bedtime stories.

“By the way, could we go into the USDA now urging grandparents to read their grandchildren a bedtime story to help promote better eating habits,” Glenn asked on radio this morning. “But wait! There's more. Not only does the USA recommend grandparents read, the USDA has their own little book they are recommending that the grandparents read to their kids. It's wonderful.”

The USDA blog post explains:

As a proud grandmother, I can attest that grandkids learn by example! They mimic everything you do, so be a healthy role model by taking care of yourself and they will learn to value healthy habits. Use ChooseMyPlate.gov to guide your food choices and better understand the nutrition needs of young children in your life. Take your grandchildren shopping at a farmer’s market and the grocery store. Talk about the choices you are making—choosing the juicier oranges or the fresher vegetables. Help them learn cooking skills, which will benefit them throughout their lives. Encourage them to be active throughout the day… Reward them with your attention. Hugs are much better than sweet treats.

[…]

Show your grandchild games, activity sheets and other fun ways to learn about good nutrition at MyPlate Kids’ Place. For a bedtime story, read The Two Bite Club.

When you consider the nationalized nature of Common Core and progressives like MSNBC’s Melissa Harris Perry declaring children are to be raised by the collective, the USDA’s 'suggestions' seem to be in line with broader goals to increase government control. As Glenn sees it, this is nothing short of government propaganda.

“This used to be against the law. It's propaganda. It used to be everybody – especially on the left – was against propaganda,” Glenn concluded. “Everybody is for kids having healthy eating. Let's stop with the government propaganda. If there is really something out there, let the doctors put all this together… Governments should not be selling products. Ever.”

Sen. Ted Cruz: NOBODY should be afraid of Trump's Supreme Court justice pick

Sen. Ted Cruz (R-Texas) joined Glenn Beck on the radio program Wednesday to weigh in on President Donald Trump's potential Supreme Court nominees and talk about his timely new book, "One Vote Away: How a Single Supreme Court Seat Can Change History."

Sen. Cruz argued that, while Congressional Democrats are outraged over President Trump's chance at a third court appointment, no one on either side should be afraid of a Supreme Court justice being appointed if it's done according to the founding documents. That's why it's crucial that the GOP fills the vacant seat with a true constitutionalist.

Sen. Mike Lee (R-Utah) joined Glenn Beck on the radio program Wednesday to talk about why he believes President Donald Trump will nominate Judge Amy Coney Barrett to fill the Supreme Court vacancy created by Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg's death.

Lee, a member of the Senate Judiciary Committee that will consider and vote on the nominee, also weighed in on another Supreme Court contender: Judge Barbara Lagoa. Lee said he would not be comfortable confirming Lagoa without learning more about her history as it pertains to upholding the U.S. Constitution.

This week on the Glenn Beck Podcast, Glenn spoke with Vox co-founder Matthew Yglesias about his new book, "One Billion Americans: The Case for Thinking Bigger."

Matthew and Glenn agree that, while conservatives and liberals may disagree on a lot, we're not as far apart as some make it seem. If we truly want America to continue doing great things, we must spend less time fighting amongst ourselves.

'A convenient boogeyman for misinformation artists': Why is the New York Times defending George Soros?

On the "Glenn Beck Radio Program" Tuesday, Glenn discussed the details of a recent New York Times article that claims left-wing billionaire financier George Soros "has become a convenient boogeyman for misinformation artists who have falsely claimed that he funds spontaneous Black Lives Matter protests as well as antifa, the decentralized and largely online, far-left activist network that opposes President Trump."

The Times article followed last week's bizarre Fox News segment in which former House Speaker Newt Gingrich appeared to be censored for criticizing Soros (read more here). The article also labeled Glenn a "conspiracy theorist" for his tweet supporting Gingrich.
