DISTURBING: You will not be able to unsee this video

What happens on the ranch, really needs to stay on the ranch. Over the weekend, Glenn post a pretty disturbing of what life is like on the ranch. It turns out cows don't magically turn into delicious, delicious steaks. No, there is a lot of really, really gross stuff that happens in the middle - including castration of the calves. But how it happened on Glenn's ranch may have you completely rethinking ever eating a steak again, no matter how good it tastes.

On Saturday, the rancher who runs Glenn's farm and ranch invited a real cowboy to help with the procedure. It turns out he uses an old-fashioned method of castrating the cows: He uses his mouth to pull out the testes.

"I thought that he was joking," Glenn said. "Seriously. He bites them off."

"He does make a little cut first and then he goes in and gets personal. Gets up close and personal by biting [the testicles] off," Pat said.

Glenn explained that there is a vein that will self-seal if pulled out, but will bleed if it's only cut. The cowboy's nontraditional method is actually better long-term for the cow.

"He did this last year or the year before," Glenn said, "They recovered twice as fast and with zero infection because it self-seals."

Now, Glenn was only physically able to assist with two of the castrations and never did more than wrestle the calves to the ground. Stu, a vegetarian, was critical of both his lack of involvement and the posting of the graphic video on Facebook.

"Your ranching is hilarious. It's like, it's this absentee sort of like you pop in to do one-tenth of a percent of it and call yourself a rancher. That's the Glenn Beck way," Stu joked.

"I can't believe so many things about this. Number one, I can't believe that you were involved in it. I can't believe that you took a video of it. I can't believe you posted that video on Facebook to your millions of followers," Stu added.

Glenn told Stu the same thing he told his kids - if you're going to eat meat from the farm you have to understand how it gets from the farm to the table.

"We try to be very, very humane. You know, that's why we don't need to brand because we don't need to brand them, et cetera, et cetera. But you do this. And my point on this - when I talk to the kids. The kids are like, dad, I don't want to see this. Look, you don't have to do it and you don't have to see it more than once. But you have to say, I see it. I know what it is," Glenn said.

Watch what happened below - and again, WARNING! Graphic content:

This is how we spent our sat morning.Believe it or not, this helps the calf heal twice as fast and zero infection.WARNING YOU WILL NEVER UNSEE THIS! Crazy! I didn't know people did this!

A new Pew Research Center report shows the death toll in the United States from COVID-19 is "heavily concentrated" in Democratic congressional districts.

According to the analysis, more than half of all COVID-19 deaths in the U.S. occurred in just 44 (approximately 10 percent of) congressional districts, and 41 of those 44 hardest-hit districts are represented by Democrats, while only three are represented by Republicans.

"A new Pew Research Center analysis of data on official reports of COVID-19 deaths, collected by the John Hopkins University Center for Systems Science and Engineering, finds that, as of last week, nearly a quarter of all the deaths in the United States attributed to the coronavirus have been in just 12 congressional districts – all located in New York City and represented by Democrats in Congress. Of the more than 92,000 Americans who had died of COVID-19 as of May 20 (the date that the data in this analysis was collected), nearly 75,000 were in Democratic congressional districts," Pew reported.

Filling in for Glenn Beck on the radio program this week, Pat Gray and Stu Burguiere argued that, while the coronavirus should never have been made into a partisan issue, the study certainly makes a strong statement in favor of GOP leadership.

The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) once predicted the coronavirus death rate would be between 4 and 5 percent, but they've just come out with a new report and those predictions have been adjusted significantly.

According to the CDC's latest data, the fatality rate among Americans showing COVID-19 symptoms is 0.4 percent. And an estimated 35 percent who are infected by the virus will never have any symptoms. Therefore, the CDC is now estimating COVID-19 kills less than 0.3 percent of people infected.

Filling in for Glenn Beck on the radio program this week, Pat Gray and Stu Burguiere recalled when the mainstream media went into overdrive, hammering President Donald Trump for predicting the final COVID-19 death rate would be "under one percent."

Looks like the president was right all along.

Michigan barber Karl Manke isn't a troublemaker. He's a law-abiding citizen who did everything possible to financially survive during the COVID-19 lockdown. pandemic. Eventually, he had no other option: he had to reopen his business in defiance of Democratic Gov. Gretchen Whitmer's stay-at-home orders.

In an interview on the "Glenn Beck Radio Program," Manke, 77, told Glenn, "I'm not backing down" despite Whitmer's seemingly vindictive attempts to shut down his business.

Shortly after reopening, Manke was ticketed for violating Whitmer's stay-at-home order and charged with a misdemeanor. When he still refused to close his doors, the governor's office went a step further and suspended his barber license.

"It's kind of a vindictive thing," said Manke. "I've become a worm in her brain ... and she is going full force, illegally, when legislatures told her that she was out of place and this was not her assignment, she decided to take it anyway."

On Thursday, the Shiawassee County Circuit Judge refused to issue a preliminary injunction against Manke. Read more on this update here.

Time after time, Americans have taken to the streets to defend our constitutional rights, whether it was our livelihood at stake -- or our lives. But, what was the point of all the civil rights movements that came before, if we're about to let the government take our rights away now?

On his Wednesday night special, Glenn Beck argued that Americans are tired of having our rights trampled by "tyrannical" leaders from state and local governments who are ignoring our unalienable rights during this pandemic.

"Our nanny state has gone too far. The men and women in office -- the ones closest to our communities, our towns, our cities -- are now taking advantage of our fear," Glenn said. "Like our brothers and sisters of the past, we need to start making the decisions that will put our destiny, and our children's destiny, back into our hands."

It took less than two months of the coronavirus tyranny to make America unrecognizable, but some Americans are fighting back, risking losing their jobs and businesses or even jail time, as they battle to take back our civil rights.

Here are just a few of their stories:

After New Jersey's Atilis Gym reopened in defiance of the governor's executive order, the Department of Health shut them down for "posing a threat to the public health." Co-owner Ian Smith says somebody sabotaged the gym's toilets with enire rolls of paper to create the public health "threat."

Oregon Salon owner, Lindsey Graham, was fined $14 thousand for reopening. She said she was visited by numerous government organizations, including Child Protective Services, in what she believes are bullying tactics straight from the governor's office.

77-year-old Michigan barber, Karl Manke, refused to close his shop even when facing arrest. "I couldn't go another 30 days without an income," he said. But when local police refused to arrest him, Gov. Gretchen Whitmer's (D) office suspending his business license instead.

Port of Seattle police officer Greg Anderson was suspended after he spoke out against enforcing what he called "tyrannical orders" imposed amid coronavirus lockdowns.

Kentucky mother-of-seven, Mary Sabbatino, found herself under investigation for alleged child abuse after breaking social distancing rules at a bank. After a social worker from child protective services determined there was no sign of abuse, he still sought to investigate why the Sabbatino's are homeschooling, and how they can give "adequate attention to that many children."

Dallas salon owner Shelley Luther was sentenced to seven days in jail after she defied the state-mandated stay-at-home orders to reopen her business.
