GLENN: The food safety bill has passed and we just got the record on who voted for it. It passed 75 25?

STU: 73 25.

GLENN: Okay. So that's a lot of Republicans.

STU: Yeah. You had 25

PAT: Do we know which ones?

STU: You do. You ready for the list? Alexander.

GLENN: These are people that voted for it.

STU: Yes.

GLENN: Okay.

STU: Alexander, Tennessee. Just Republicans. Obviously every Democrat voted for it. So these are just the Republicans who voted for it. Alexander, Tennessee; Brown, Scott Brown, Massachusetts; Burr in North Carolina; Susan Collins, no surprise there in Maine; Enzi in Wyoming.

PAT: Wow.

STU: Grassley, Iowa.

PAT: Wow.

STU: Gregg, New Hampshire. Johanns in Nebraska; let's see. LeMieux, Florida.

GLENN: How did these guys, how did these guys do it in Nebraska and Iowa? How did they do it? How did these people who you're going to have to go to farmers now and say, you're going to have more paperwork to do, you're going to have to change your standards, we can tell you what animals can and cannot walk on your land at certain times. I mean, this is nuts.

STU: I mean, my guess is there's probably candy in there because it seems like all of the, you know, the Midwestern sort of that's where they are getting the support from.

GLENN: This is the Monsanto bill.

STU: Lugar, Indiana; Murkowski, Alaska.

GLENN: Do you know why this passed? Do you know why this passed?

STU: Snowe. There's only a couple more. I want to get through them here. Snowe in Maine. Vitter, Louisiana. Kind of a surprise. And that's all of them, I believe.

GLENN: Do you know the, I think it's the second biggest investment in George Soros' portfolio. Monsanto. And he just stocked up. Put more of Monsanto on his shelf. You knew this was going to pass. The big bill, the big winner in this is Monsanto. Monsanto is also our genetic food people, which is fantastic. We can all buy our seeds from Monsanto because to pay for it it's a very slippery slope. We like genetic foods because we can feed more people. They can genetically modify the food and we can grow more food per acre and so it's fantastic. The unfortunate thing is we're genetically modifying the food. And what happens is because they have to pay for the research, they can't sell you a they can't sell you a seed, you know, a bunch of seeds for corn and then have that corn go reseed itself. They sterilize it and so it doesn't reseed. So you always have to buy your corn from Monsanto or whoever is producing this. You can't reseed any of it.

Now, for anybody who actually listened to the birds and the bees and not talking about sex but actually the job of the birds and the bees is cross pollenation. When you cross pollenate something that has been sterilized, you taint it. So now your regular corn, your heirloom corn, God's corn, not Monsanto's corn is being cross pollenated and it is going sterile. So you have no food diversity. This is why they put the seeds in the seed vault.

You know, I brought this up at where was I just I think this was at the Thanksgiving table. I'm such a drag. And most of the people around the table didn't know about the seed vault. The seed vault is up in the Arctic Circle. What country is it in? Do you know?

STU: Norway?

GLENN: Norway? It's up in the Arctic Circle. I mean, it's up in the middle of nowhere. And it is deep underground in the ice. And every country had to bring heirloom seeds. We brought apple seeds and corn and everything else. Anything that was heirloom and we put it and we buried it under the polar icecap. And the reason why we did it is because in case there's something catastrophic. Bullcrap in case there's something catastrophic. In case what we're doing to the food right now is wrong. And we wipe out our food supply. At least we'll have some place, some heirloom seeds where we can all play Johnny Appleseed and restart the planet. I mean, just, I find it very interesting that nobody seems to have a concern at all that the people John Holdren, our science czar, who believes in the sterilization of man. You have so many people running around this White House and around the circle of power now that believe that man is a virus that is killing the planet. You have Monsanto, a company that is making genetically modified seeds that sterilize our food supply, our natural food supply. We don't know what we're doing with food. You really think we're at the point to where we're competent enough to modify our food? And these are the people behind the new farm safety bill. All these people that believe that humans are a disease, the planet is being destroyed by man, that we should reduce the surplus population, that we should what was the latest thing on global warming today? That, out in Cancun? That the government is like, we're going to pass this and if it doesn't, if it doesn't pass, we'll go around the Senate anyway. There's other ways to get this done. This is the new Kyoto Treaty and it's happening in Cancun, and they are not worried about it. It passes, it doesn't pass, they will get it done. Those are the White House words. Because it's just too important not to do.

So what is their plan? Their plan is industrialization in the United States must stop. It must not grow. So the rest of the world can catch up with it. What are we, in a timeout box all of a sudden? What do you mean the United States must not grow? You can't just arrest an economy. You can't just stop it. It doesn't just go into hibernation. It dies. These people are playing games with human lives. And they think they're better. They think they know. That's all a grand experiment to them. They'll be fine. Oh, in the end it will all be good for humankind. The ends justify the means.

I don't understand how you can have so many people surrounding this president and this administration that believe in horrific things, horrific things. And we give them access to our food supply! All in the name of safety, of course. At best this will make our food costs go up. At best. At best your meat will be worth more. You will eat less meat. It's by design. Cass Sunstein. He wants you to eat less meat.

You know what? When these people in Washington D.C., when the first lady can get her husband to stop smoking, when the first lady can get her husband who the doctor says should change his diet because his cholesterol is too high, when she can get his cholesterol under control and his smoking to stop, she can start lecturing me and my children about the way we're living our lives. At best this will make your food increase in price, quickly. At worst it's a horror show. The way it always ends, in giant progressive governments. It always ends in starvation. Always. But this is their step in that grand experiment that always ends the same way. Why people won't, you know, just look at the people and say, you know what? I don't know if we know what we're doing with food yet. I don't like the fact that we're genetically modifying everything. Now I don't like the fact that Monsanto is the big winner in this and they are passing this just overnight. You've got people in this administration that believe people are a virus, reduce the surplus population, population is a problem. I don't know why people won't at least consider preparing for, you know, what does George Soros call it? Unforeseen circumstances. Hmmm.

Gang, God is involved and he doesn't lose. But I think things are going to change because they cannot go. They cannot continue to go this way. They can't. You're going against too many of the laws of nature. Nature's God and nature's laws. It's what our founders talked about. It's natural law. And when man gets out of the flow of natural law, natural law, nature's god, will reset it. It's going to be fine but it's going to be reset. You can't take anything with you on the reset. But you can take knowledge. You can take your skills and your knowledge and your children.

This Thursday I'm doing a special on Broke. It's the book that we wrote and I'm doing it in movie theatres. It's a town hall meeting. And I want to talk to you about the solutions, not just the problems. But I want to tell you about history and I want to tell you about the solutions that are available. And if people laugh at you or make fun of you, that's fine. I don't really care. You've got to get to the point of acceptance. Everybody else can be angry, they can be in denial, they can be in depression. You need to get your place to acceptance that the world is going to change. Great. It's an opportunity for me to strengthen my family. It's an opportunity to set our country straight. That, I guarantee you, is the way the radicals are looking at it. It is an opportunity to take this country and put it in a position to where they want it and they will control it. You've got to get out of denial, you've got to get out of anger, you've got to get out of depression, you've got to get out of bargaining and you have to get into acceptance. The world is going to change. Now, how would our founders want us to reset it? What do we need to make sure in tough times our children will not forget? They barely know what freedom is. They have a distorted view of the free market system because it hasn't been free in a hundred years. We are the ones. We are the keepers of the flame. Protect the flame. Protect the flame.

It's been a tough year, America. Our news media is inundating us with images of destruction, violence, and division in attempts not only to desecrate our nation, but to make us turn our backs on it. That's why now, more than ever, we need to take an up-close look at America's history to remember what it is we're fighting for and how to fight for it with practical action.

Join Glenn Beck, broadcasting from Standing Rock Ranch, as he takes us to Plymouth, Gettysburg, and Federal Hall on an important journey through America's remarkable history to inspire a brighter future. Glenn asks the hard questions of every American. Is this system worth saving? Is there a better way? Where do we go from here, and how do we answer those questions?

Featuring performances from the Millennial Choirs and Orchestras, David Osmond, a very special children's choir, and guests Bob Woodson, Tim Ballard, David Barton, Burgess Owens, Kathy Barnette, Anna Paulina Luna, and Tim Barton.

"Restoring Hope" has been a labor of love for Glenn and his team and tonight is the night! "Restoring the Covenant" was supposed to take place in Boston, New York, Philadelphia, Gettysburg and Washington D.C. but thanks to COVID-19, that plan had to be scrapped. "Restoring Hope" is what was left after having to scrap nearly two years of planning. The Herald Journal in Idaho detailed what the event was supposed to be and what it turned into. Check out the article below to get all the details.

Glenn Beck discusses patriotic, religious program filmed at Idaho ranch

On July 2, commentator Glenn Beck and his partners will issue a challenge from Beck's corner of Franklin County to anyone who will listen: "Learn the truth, commit to the truth, then act on the truth."

Over the last few weeks, he has brought about 1,000 people to his ranch to record different portions of the program that accompanies the challenge. On June 19, about 400 members of the Millennial Choir and Orchestra met at West Side High School before boarding WSSD buses to travel to a still spring-green section of Beck's ranch to record their portion of the program.

The current riots and movement to erase America's history are exactly in line with the New York Times' "1619 Project," which argues that America was rotten at its beginning, and that slavery and systemic racism are the roots of everything from capitalism to our lack of universal health care.

On this week's Wednesday night special, Glenn Beck exposed the true intent of the "1619 Project" and its creator, who justifies remaking America into a Marxist society. This clever lie is disguised as history, and it has already infiltrated our schools.

"The '1619 Project' desperately wants to pass itself off as legitimate history, but it totally kneecaps itself by ignoring so much of the American story. There's no mention of any black Americans who succeeded in spite of slavery, due to the free market capitalist system. In the 1619 Project's effort to take down America, black success stories are not allowed. Because they don't fit with the narrative. The role of white Americans in abolishing slavery doesn't fit the narrative either," Glenn said.

"The agenda is not ultimately about history," he added. "It's just yet another vehicle in the fleet now driven by elites in America toward socialism."

Acclaimed environmentalist and author of "Apocalypse Never" Michael Shellenberger joined Glenn Beck on the radio program Wednesday to warn us about the true goals and effects of climate alarmism: It's become a "secular religion" that lowers standards of living in developed countries, holds developing countries back, and has environmental progress "exactly wrong."

Michael is a Time "Hero of the Environment," Green Book Award winner, and the founder and president of Environmental Progress. He has been called a "environmental guru," "climate guru," "North America's leading public intellectual on clean energy," and "high priest" of the environmental humanist movement for his writings and TED talks, which have been viewed more than 5 million times. But when Michael penned a stunning article in Forbes saying, "On Behalf of Environmentalists, I Apologize for the Climate Scare", the article was pulled just a few hours later. (Read more here.)

On the show, Micheal talked about how environmental alarmism has overtaken scientific fact, leading to a number of unfortunate consequences. He said one of the problems is that rich nations are blocking poor nations from being able to industrialize. Instead, they are seeking to make poverty sustainable, rather than to make poverty history.

"As a cultural anthropologist, I've been traveling to poorer countries and interviewing small farmers for over 30 years. And, obviously there are a lot of causes why countries are poor, but there's no reason we should be helping them to stay poor," Michael said. "A few years ago, there was a movement to make poverty history ... [but] it got taken over by the climate alarmist movement, which has been focused on depriving poor countries, not just of fossil fuels they need to develop, but also the large hydroelectric dams."

He offered the example of the Congo, one of the poorest countries in the world. The Congo has been denied the resources needed to build large hydroelectric dams, which are absolutely essential to pull people out of poverty. And one of the main groups preventing poor countries from the gaining financing they need to to build dams is based in Berkeley, California — a city that gets its electricity from hydroelectric dams.

"It's just unconscionable ... there are major groups, including the Sierra Club, that support efforts to deprive poor countries of energy. And, honestly, they've taken over the World Bank [which] used to fund the basics of development: roads, electricity, sewage systems, flood control, dams," Micheal said.

"Environmentalism, apocalyptic environmentalism in particular, has become the dominant religion of supposedly secular people in the West. So, you know, it's people at the United Nations. It's people that are in very powerful positions who are trying to impose 'nature's order' on societies," he continued. "And, of course, the problem is that nobody can figure out what nature is, and what it's not. That's not a particular good basis for organizing your economy."
