What a night at the rodeo taught Glenn about being authentic and decent

The first night of "That Famous Preston Night Rodeo." Preston Idaho.

We had a blast as a family.

We love the rodeo, the people, the fearless cowboys, the brave clowns and the incredible animals.

We went back behind the ring before the rodeo and saw the animals. They are magnificent. So beautiful and so well cared for.

We saw the horses leave tonight afterword in air conditioned trailers that honestly were nicer than some RVs I have seen.

I love the fact that everything is authentic and decent. The people are real and kind. This is a town that has its problems but somehow everyone gets through it.

As my kids were waiting in line for a ride or two, a guy came up and asked how my internet was. He has been working on it and was worried that it was way too slow. He said he was really concerned.

What?! Really? Yes. Someone that deeply cares about not only his job but his customers.

I stood for a few minutes and watched the sheriffs deputies greet the faces arriving to the event. Calling them by name as they are all neighbors.

It is a town of 5,000 and the next town over is 400.

If you are anywhere around Preston Idaho this weekend. Get tickets. See the parade that runs through this great small town. Both Friday and Saturday at 6:30.

Meet the people. Eat at Mis Amores or the New York deli (nothing like a real NYC deli thank God) or better yet grab a fresh strawberry shake at Big J's, the nicest fast food place in the country. Really.

I love the people of this town and how they live. Tonight I helped change the sprinkler heads on the farm after dinner and then ran out to the rodeo to watch from the back row. Not sure which was better, the rodeo, the perfect weather under the full moon, or just living even if it is for a few short days every once and awhile in a place that just makes sense.

It was a great family night in a town that makes me hopeful that we as a people survive.

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.
