Yikes! You won’t believe what Glenn is doing on the farm today

Life is different on a farm. You get to experience hard work, and more importantly you get to see where your food comes from. Like you really, really get to see where your food comes from. It may not be so bad pulling tomatoes out of the garden, but everything about getting meat from the farm to the table can be pretty brutal. Glenn described what he had planned for the family today, and you might become a vegetarian after going through this.

Spent all day in bed wrestling a bad cold. We had a 'Dr. Who' marathon.

Tomorrow AM we are going down to our farm in the valley and feed the cows, and castrate the young calves.

Yikes. Our first time. Not sure how all of us are going to react. My son doesn't want to go. I know what he means, I want to cross my legs every time we discuss it.

Having a farm where we can grow our own vegetables is one thing, but the ranch in the mountains is a whole different thing.

I tell the kids, if they can't look at it and help then they need to be vegetarians. No problem of you don't want to do what it takes to bring hamburger to the table. I get it. It is hard work but it also tugs at your heart. These are Gods creatures. They must solve that conflict and if they can't they shouldn't eat it. It isn't right to turn away from moral dilemmas.

I don't like the mass chicken plants etc for that reason. I won't eat veal for the same reason. It isn't right to box an animal so it is more tender.

We need to be humane and treat them with care and respect. You want to give them massages every day? Cool. I won't pay for the Kobe beef but some will.

No foie gras, no veal and humane chicken ranches. I personally feel it is only right.

I think it is good to raise the kids around farms. So much of life is self evident on a farm. Most don't even know where food comes from. Let them see it and decide for themselves.

If they decide to go vegan so be it. I want my children to have strong opinions. Should they disagree with mine even better as long as they can defend it.

Let's show our kids the truth and teach them theories too. But most importantly,teach them how to think. Critical thinking and expose them to as much of life as you can.

Tomorrow, perhaps, I lose a meat eater. Who knows, maybe it is me, although I doubt it.

Steak is yummy!

Last time we did something like this we ended the practice of branding on my ranch. Our ranch manager doesn't like it either.

God is great and we must be kind and gentle stewards over his creation.

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.
