Road Trip! Join Glenn and his family on their cross-country adventure

The Beck family decided to end their time at the ranch early this Christmas, and are closing out 2014 with a drive through the mountain West. Glenn took to Facebook to seek advice on where to go, and has been sharing updates and photos from the road.

12/28:

NEED YOUR HELP. We Are leaving the ranch early. Decided to take a car home but we are going way out of our way and see places we have never been.

We want to stop in Reno, Carson city or Lake Tahoe. Any suggestions of what to do, see or stay? Then we want to see the sequoias. Again suggestions of where to stay and where to go?

Final night either Bryce canon or the north ridge of the Grand Canyon.

12/29:

Just stopped in Malad City at Allen's Drug store. Picked up their world famous Daniel's Croup and Cold Ointment. They've been making it since the 1920's and say it's better than Vicks. We'll let you know!

12/29:

On our way today to Nevada and the to the sequoias.

We borrowed Rascal Flats tour bus. Front window on the highway after an hour delay from a 15 car pile up.

12/30 (early morning):

We just arrived at our hotel in western Nevada, we are staying at an old hotel who's staff leaves around 8pm. It is 1am. Our keys were taped to the front desk with a note.

Crazy great!

To live in a town where you can trust what is happening. I think this is a good sign on the people. We thought maybe everyone might be like this, when the guys who need to travel with the family pulled in to the parking lot on the other side of the hotel. As one of them stepped out of the car, in the pitch black they heard a voice calmly say, " can I help you?" At first they didn't know where the voice was coming from until they saw through the screen door of a little cabin white socks. There behind the door was a man in white socks and apparently little else.

He scolded them for coming in so late, because they woke his wife and she wasn't happy. They apologized and he demanded names and who they were with that would come in so late. It ended nicely. We all felt badly.

After we got the bis unloaded and before we parted for the night, I told them they should have said they were with Obama and that the president just wanted to play though on the local golf course. But they were actually with the irs and "can we get your name sir." .

My guys are far to professional to have done that. But I am not. .

Interested to see if this is a town that hates me or loves me. We find very little in between except those who just don't know me like most non news hound style people,

When we leave this town for the next we will fill you in on the details.

Until then -- from high up in the mountain tops in a strange new land that time has passed by... Good night America.

12/30 (night):

We are just leaving Lake Tahoe. Met some great people. Tara at the powder house and had lunch at one of my new favorite Latin restaurants ever. I would open this franchise! Azul!"

Just leaving Las Cruces where we stayed the night due to weather. We all can't wait to be in our own bed.

The two kids have started on the cot or pull out couch every night but end up sleeping with us by the AM.

I will miss that someday...just not today:)

Tania and I have our anniversary next week. I don't think either of us are going to be ready for a trip.

10426549_10152974072603188_8047823931301977910_n

Just about an hour out of El Paso and We are being stopped and boarded to see if everyone on the bus is an American. If we answer no, will we get something special? Maybe they will pay for the rest of our trip home as long as it is in the us.

Apparel company The North Face recently stated that it would no longer make jackets for oil and gas companies because it doesn't want to be associated with the fossil fuel industry. In response, Colorado-based oil and gas company Liberty Oilfield Services rented full billboard ads to remind The North Face of the truth: "Globally, 60% of all clothing fibers are made out of oil and gas. For North Face, it is likely 90% or more."

Liberty CEO Chris Wright joined Glenn Beck on the radio program Tuesday to discuss just how much of our economy — beyond outdoor apparel and energy — wouldn't exist in a world without fossil fuels. And he warns that many companies are now deeming this truth to be "controversial."

"I have been for years, trying to get a real, honest dialogue about energy going," Chris told Glenn. "So we took this opportunity to point out that North Face jackets are ... almost completely made out of oil and gas. How can you choose not to associate with the essential material your equipment [is] made out of? So we put a billboard up ... the billboard says, 'That North Face puffer looks good on you. And it was made from fossil fuels.'"

"Most billboard companies did not want to run that billboard. They thought it was controversial," he added. "And Facebook put a hold on our brief video just saying the jacket looks good, this is what it's made out of. In today's world, that is controversial."

During a lecture at the Yale School of Medicine's Child Study Center, a New York City-based psychiatrist told students and faculty that she fantasizes about "unloading a revolver into the head of any white person that got in my way," among several other shockingly race-hating statements.

In April, Dr. Aruna Khilanani — a New York-based forensic psychiatrist and psychoanalyst — delivered the talk called "The Psychopathic Problem of the White Mind" virtually as part of the Yale School of Medicine's "Child Study Center Grand Rounds," a lecture program for "trainees in child psychiatry, psychology, and social work, faculty, clinicians, and scientists."

On the radio program Monday, Glenn Beck shared several quotes from an audio recording of the lecture provided by Bari Weiss, a former opinion writer and editor for the New York Times.

Here are a few of Khilanani's statements from the audio:

  • "This is the cost of talking to white people at all. The cost of your own life, as they suck you dry. There are no good apples out there. White people make my blood boil."
  • "I had fantasies of unloading a revolver into the head of any white person that got in my way, burying their body, and wiping my bloody hands as I walked away relatively guiltless with a bounce in my step. Like I did the world a f***ing favor."
  • "White people are out of their minds. And they have been for a long time."
  • "White people feel that we are bullying them when we bring up race. They feel that we should be thanking them for all that they have done for us. They are confused, and so are we. We keep forgetting that directly talking about race is a waste of our breath."
  • "We are asking a demented, violent predator who thinks that they are a saint or a superhero, to accept responsibility. It ain't gonna happen. They have five holes in their brain. It's like banging your head against a brick wall. It's just like sort of not a good idea."

"We must take a stand. We must speak out, because this is evil," Glenn said in response to Khilanani's shocking lecture. "I don't care who you voted for, you know this is evil."

The prices of our houses and food are already rising fast, but they will skyrocket to record highs if we don't fix the problem soon. So what's causing the inflation?

On the radio program this week, Glenn Beck said he doesn't believe it's the fault of our loggers, farmers, or truckers — many of them are really struggling. But the big corporations that control these industries are making record profits, all while the Biden administration is making some very odd decisions that could make the crises even worse.

The crisis at the border continues to worsen, with the U.S. Border Patrol recently releasing some shocking statistics that illuminate just how bad the situation has become. But Texas Governor Greg Abbott (R) is doing everything he can to prevent any additional unlawful crossings into the Lone Star State.

Abbott joined Glenn Beck on the radio program Wednesday to describe recent action he has taken to ensure that those who do cross into Texas illegally know they came to the "wrong state."

After noting that both President Joe Biden and Vice President Kamala Harris "have completely abandoned post as it concerns the Texas border," Abbott explained how "Texas is stepping up" to combat the flood of dangerous gangs and cartels, human traffickers and drugs he says are pouring into border communities.

"Beginning in March, I deployed a thousand Texas Department of Public Safety officers to the border. I deployed the National Guard to the border. And they made well over a thousand arrests of some of these criminals we talked about. They've apprehended more than 33,000 illegal immigrants coming across the border." Abbott said. "But because of the way the Biden administration has abandoned the border, we are now elevating our game. What I did yesterday, in response to more than a dozen counties along the border ... I granted their request for a disaster declaration," he added.

Abbott went on to describe how his disaster declaration gives Texas the authority to toughen penalties for lawbreakers, including criminal trespassing, smuggling, and human trafficking.

"We're going to begin arresting everybody coming across the border and charging them with criminal trespass and putting them in jail. They are coming in here, thinking they'll get the Biden free-ride, and go wherever they want to go. Not in the state of Texas. We'll start arresting them right and left, and putting them behind bars, and saying they came in to the wrong state."

Asked by Glenn if he is prepared for the inevitable "media onslaught", Abbott simply answered, "We're prepared to see a reduction in the number of people coming across the border — because Texas is enforcing the law, period."
