The Podcasts by Glenn Beck

The 5 p.m. Eastern broadcast by Glenn Beck has been wonderfully uplifting lately. You can watch the shows on TheBlaze.com, or on YouTube or download The Glenn Beck Podcast from several podcast outlets for your listening pleasure.

The 4E Solution by Glenn Beck

Each interview is fascinating. I feel better educated, enlightened, empowered and inspired as Glenn interviews each of these amazing men and woman.

  1. Tim Ballard
  2. Robert Spencer
  3. Michael Rectenwald
  4. Cassie Jaye
  5. Gene McGuire
  6. Eric Bolling

As I listen and learn I am reminded of a quote by the late Neal A. Maxwell:

“How can you and I really expect to glide naively through life, as if to say, ‘Lord, give me experience, but not grief, not sorrow, not pain, not opposition, not betrayal, and certainly not to be forsaken. Keep from me, Lord, all those experiences which made Thee what Thou art! Then, let me come and dwell with Thee and fully share Thy joy!’ ”  — Neal A. Maxwell

There are solutions to every challenge. None of us are exempt from and truly we can learn through our trials and tribulations, or through those of others, that in our extremities we can come to know God.

He has a Plan for us.

Obama Facts vs Obama Lies, allegedly

Speaking of sophistry, this story almost made me tip over backwards while rolling my eyes:

Obama takes a shot at Trump in Nevada: ‘I actually try to state facts’

My first thought was #Benghazigate and #4DeadAmericans. Oh wait, that was all Hillary’s fault and not Obama’s?

But wait, there’s more:

  1. Obama’s Top Five Health Care Lies
  2. Ten of Barack Obama’s Worst Lies
  3. Fact Check: To 10 Lies in Obama’s State of the Union
  4. Obama’s lies and the lies of the media

Quote: Psychopaths in Command

“To defeat domestic psychopaths requires that we recognize that the most characteristic and destructive traits of a psychopathic system are corruption and incompetence.”   ~ James G. Long

Now there is a fact.

One of the best things I did was take the 10 Day Social Media Fast. Here is the challenge:

First, I invite you to participate in a 10-day fast from social media and from any other media that bring negative and impure thoughts to your mind. Pray to know which influences to remove during your fast. The effect of your 10-day fast may surprise you. What do you notice after taking a break from perspectives of the world that have been wounding your spirit? Is there a change in where you now want to spend your time and energy? Have any of your priorities shifted—even just a little? I urge you to record and follow through with each impression. 

~ President Russell M. Nelson

What I found I truly enjoyed was really listening to Glenn Beck and The Blaze television streaming every day. Glenn is now doing the sort of programming that needed to be done several years ago, conversations. Conversations about the Founding Fathers. Conversations about The Divine Constitution, all of the things that must be discussed and repeated through the generations. Glenn has a ton of great On Demand programs but I love the live broadcasts and really enjoy the conversations with his guests.

One quote from many years ago has come to my mind over the past thirty days:

The merchant who tries to sell you a product by extolling its virtues and offering it to you at a fair price is engaged in legitimate persuasion. The merchant who exaggerates the quality of his product, fails to disclose dangerous weaknesses, or misleads as to price is manipulating.

~ M. Dallas Burnett

Stepping carefully back into the social media scene my mind is in a much better place. Some of my thoughts and feelings are less emotional and better suited to hear things from a fresh perspective therefore the prospects are seen in a much brighter light.

Am I happy with Mitch McConnell and Paul Ryan. Ugh, NO!

Am I happy with the direction too many in the Republican Party are taking our nation by voting with the Democrat non-conservative policies? Ugh, NO again!

Do I have faith in the few that are working to protect the American People from being consumed by those in Congress usurping our unalienable rights? Most definitely.

And I have faith in all of you who read and re-read our Declaration of Independence and United States Constitution. You are the ones holding Congress’ feet over the flames of freedom. You are the ones teaching future generations, by example, the foundational principles for living so they can, in turn, govern themselves.

We hold these truths to be self-evident, that all men are created equal, that they are endowed by their Creator with certain unalienable Rights, that among these are Life, Liberty and the pursuit of Happiness.

We the People of the United States, in Order to form a more perfect Union, establish Justice, insure domestic Tranquility, provide for the common defense, promote the general Welfare, and secure the Blessings of Liberty to ourselves and our Posterity, do ordain and establish this Constitution for the United States of America.

 Preamble to the United States Constitution

By the way, PROMOTING the general welfare, welfare as in faring well, is not providing general welfare as some people claim through the redistribution of wealth as plainly illustrated in the Declaration of Independence.

Hart Spine and Rehab

After being out of joint for a few of days, unable to get my body to realign itself, I finally listened to my Coach Charles‘ recommendation to go see Dr. Hart of Hart Spine and Rehab. It was a fantastic experience. I should have gone in to see Dr. Hart two days ago. 

The staff is absolutely wonderful. Meeting and chatting with Dr. Hart was like connecting with a long lost friend. The vibe at the center was lovely. 

My next visit will be to Missy Johns, the licensed massage therapist, for my 90 minute session so I look forward to that experience real soon. 

Hart Spine and Rehab is moving to their new location in December. They will be in the building right next to Guns Out Crossfit which puts them closer to my neck of the woods. Well, by a minute, barely. 

Hart Spine and Rehab definitely deserve a 5 Star rating in my book. 

 

 

10 Day Social Media Fast: Day 10

Today was one of those days where I truly enjoyed the time I spent with my little Charlie R. He has had a bit of a runny nose this week so has been a little out of sorts but nothing horrible with which to deal. He took a three hour nap today so I am figuring that he is on the mend. 

We ran an errand today. We went to Walmart to see if we could find him a “blue monie.” We looked all around and could not find one. So we left empty handed.

A monie is what he refers to as his blanket. I bought him one when he was born. It has a little whale on it. It is a very silky, blue blanket and it is Charlie R.’s favorite. He seriously  l o v e s  that monie. Never mind he has a gray one his parents bought him and it stays in his crib at his house, and never mind I bought a similar one to keep here so he had something to remind him of home, and never mind I have a second gray one in my car so we do not have to haul the crib monie back and forth as we go gallivanting about town.

So for now, no new blue monie to help take the edge off the single monie blues.

10 Day Social Media Fast: Day 9

Being less on social media has given me more opportunities to read and to watch The Blaze or listen to it in the background during my day. I usually have The Blaze on most of the time anyway however, not being distracted by social media has allowed me to really listen to it during the day.

Pat Gray Unleashed is a favorite! As the Morning Guy I love hearing him when I wake up.  I am thrilled that CRTV’s Steve Deace is now a crossover show on The Blaze. Deace is on after Glenn Beck Radio so the line up is really working for me.

One thing Deace talked about today is how some Republican’s use catch phrases when it comes to getting reelected but the Conservative Review tracks their voting records so you can see if their words are far from their hearts. I like that he brought it up while asking listeners to guess what percentage some of the names circulating themselves through the media are on the Conservative voting scale. 

Oh, if only he could hear me screaming what I know through the television screen. The Scorecard is so my friend when it comes to calling out alleged Republicans in Congress. And I really like to use it when Military people run for office, as though their military service makes them more worthy to sit in the House or Senate. 

I am right there with you Steve. Great shows this week and I look forward to more to come. Thanks for talking about the things that matter to me.

10 Day Social Media Fast: Day 8

Reading the news is not social media. Posting my thoughts and reactions on my blog is more like journalism.

When I read this article the other day on the Blaze I about tipped over backwards from rolling my eyes:

Yeah. Right. So now, after the election there is an alleged attempt to possibly have another feigned effort/promise to be finally kept by the GOP to do what the people have wanted done on Day 1 of the Trump Presidency? Now there is a bravado on the tail end of the small and #NotPermanentTaxCuts, #FullRepealEpicFail and the #Cromnibus?

Rachel Bovard discusses some of my thoughts in her article Building the Wall After All?:

“For the last two years, House Republicans have been frustrated as their leadership remains content to allow the Senate to call the shots, unwilling to engage openly in favor of their own priorities. (Or, for that matter, their own bills. Nearly 600 House bills are languishing in the Senate, waiting for action.)”

And this bill touted by Kevin McCarthy, who might be out to kill the Jim Jordan nomination for Speaker of the House as the Paul Ryan replacement?

Uh, it truly seems calculated, disingenuous, duplicitous, and extremely manipulative in this eleventh hour. I would have been more impressed if McCarthy insisted the House go on the record BEFORE this election cycle instead of afterwards.

On another note…

Glenn Beck had a great program today with his guest Dr. James Lindsay.  Seriously, you have to listen to the entire interview. It is absolutely brilliant.
