Glenn Beck – September 29, 2014

I couldn’t sleep last night. I hate nights like last night. No sleep and nothing accomplished.

I didn’t want to read or write. So instead, I tossed and turned. It may be the fact that Tania is back home and she was sleeping with the two little ones.
Neither of us sleep well without the other.

After waking at 3, reading some news, watching the craziness on the Moore Beheading and MSNBC, I couldn’t take it. Watching a Netflix doc on Sherlock Holmes was the next attempt to relax enough to fall asleep (complete sugar carb of no value) nope. So, I read a bit between several books and finally just got up, admired the hair:) and showered. Now I am waiting for breakfast to arrive and still not interested in reading news, fiction or anything else.

Remember when we were kids and we could read the back of the cereal box with joy? Over and over again. Raphe and I sit at the counter sometimes and read the box. He tells me of the cool things we can get or do if we just follow the instructions on the box.

I guess the books I am reading on my iPad or those I brought with me will have to wait one more night.

Just FYI, these are the books being consumed today. Some I brought hard copies with and others I am reading on my iPad.

Katie Kieffer Author of “Let Me Be Clear: Barack Obama’s War on Millennials…”

Let me be clear millenial obamaDana Loesch filled in for Glenn Beck today on TheBlazeTV and spoke to author Katie Kieffer about her book Let Me Be Clear: Barack Obama’s War on Millennials, and One Woman’s Case for Hope. Katie does a fantastic job looking back at the Obama Presidency and the incredible negative impact his policies are having on the latest generation growing up in an America with very little hope and a lackluster view of how they can contribute to the faltering America. But Kieffer has a positive view of her generations future. Have you lost hope? Pick up Let Me Be Clear and regain hope in the greatest county in the world.

A SEARING INDICTMENT OF THE MASTER OF CHARM, BARACK OBAMA, FOR HIS HISTORIC WAR ON AMERICAN YOUTH

“Let me be clear.” It was his come-hither call, his winsome whistle, his lingual lure. Barack Obama employed this phrase to sell his lies as maxims and his ineptitude as expertise. From JFK to Bill Clinton, America has experienced charming and coy presidents. But the most charming and coy is Obama, who seduced a generation of 95 million young Americans he used for his own political gain.

Katie Kieffer is a gutsy commentator who gives it back to Barack. She turns his words against him. She grabs the high bar of transparency that Obama set for himself and snaps it with her wit. In Let Me Be Clear, Kieffer gives us an unflinching yet entertaining account of this administration’s exploitation of Millennials:

· How: Obama spearheaded the Great Recovery—and young people could tell when their law degrees landed them jobs as baristas.

· What: the “New Shacking Up” entails. (Hint: parents AND young people hate this trend.)

· How: Barack’s buddy essentially wrote Obama-care without Congress. Plus, nearly 300 doctors offer free-market solutions to improve health care.

· How: a constitutional law–professor president failed to rationally discuss gay marriage.

· Why: Barack wouldn’t have been the best father for Trayvon Martin; he deserved better.

· What: “Assuming We Don’t Die Tonight” reveals about the bloodcurdling story of Benghazi.

· How: liberal lies about guns have “tattooed” all youths as criminals. Kieffer implodes the naïve War on Guns and presents solutions for mass violence with more love and more guns.

Inspiring hope, Kieffer outlines how conser­vatives and independents can win electoral races and achieve entrepreneurial dreams. Kieffer’s got grit. She’s very clear with her president: she brings smooth-tongued bullies to justice. See for yourself. (Amazon.com)

OUT TODAY! Conform: Exposing the Truth About Common Core and Public Education

Conform common core bookGlenn Beck’s new anti-Common Core manual is out! And it is spectacular. Most parents who pay attention to their children’s education have noticed some big changes since the governments latest “cure” for out broken educational system, Common Core. Glenn Beck along with Education Action Group founder Kyle Olson have written the latest book in Glenn’s paperback series addressing highly important issues changing America. Control was the first, address the attack on guns and now Conform: Exposing the Truth About Common Core and Public Education is here. Homeschool parents rejoice!

Click Here for Conform: Exposing the Truth About Common Core and Public Education

PUBLIC EDUCATION IS NEVER MENTIONED IN THE CONSTITUTION. WHY? BECAUSE OUR FOUNDERS KNEW THAT IT WAS AN ISSUE FOR STATE AND LOCAL GOVERNMENTS–NOT THE FEDERAL ONE.

It’s not a coincidence that the more the federal government has inserted itself into public education over the years, the worse our kids have fared. Washington dangles millions of dollars in front of states and then tells them what they have to do to get it. It’s backdoor nationalization of education–and it’s leading us to ruin.

In Conform, Glenn Beck presents a well-reasoned, fact-based analysis that proves it’s not more money our schools need–it’s a complete refocusing of their priorities and a total restructuring of their relationship with the federal government. In the process, he dismantles many of the common myths and talking points that are often heard by those who want to protect the status quo.

Critics of the current system are just “TEACHER BASHERS”…Teachers’ unions put KIDS FIRST…Homeschooled kids SUFFER both ACADEMICALLY and SOCIALLY…”LOCAL CONTROL” is an excuse to protect MEDIOCRITY…COMMON CORE is “RIGOROUS” and “STATE LED”…Critics of Common Core are just CONSPIRACY THEORISTS…Elementary school teachers need TENURE…We CAN’T REFORM schools until we ERADICATE POVERTY…SCHOOL CHOICE takes money away from PUBLIC SCHOOLS…CHARTER SCHOOLS perform poorly relative to public schools.

There is no issue more important to America’s future than education. The fact that we’ve yielded control over it to powerful unions and ideologically driven elitists is inexcusable. We are failing ourselves, our children, and our country. Conform gives parents the facts they need to take back the debate and help usher in a new era of education built around the commonsense principles of choice, freedom, and accountability.

Choose Yourself! author James Altucher on with Glenn Beck

Choose Yourself bookGlenn Beck speaks to James Altucher about his book Choose Yourself! “The world is changing. Markets have crashed. Jobs have disappeared. Industries have been disrupted and are being remade before our eyes. Everything we aspired to for “security,” everything we thought was “safe,” no longer is: College. Employment. Retirement. Government. It’s all crumbling down. In every part of society, the middlemen are being pushed out of the picture. No longer is someone coming to hire you, to invest in your company, to sign you, to pick you. It’s on you to make the most important decision in your life: Choose Yourself.

New tools and economic forces have emerged to make it possible for individuals to create art, make millions of dollars and change the world without “help.” More and more opportunities are rising out of the ashes of the broken system to generate real inward success (personal happiness and health) and outward success (fulfilling work and wealth).

This book will teach you to do just that. With dozens of case studies, interviews and examples–including the author, investor and entrepreneur James Altucher’s own heartbreaking and inspiring story–Choose Yourself illuminates your personal path to building a bright, new world out of the wreckage of the old.”

“In December of 2011, I gave a talk to an audience of scientists, Pentagon officials, politicians, and CEO’s on the secret of life and how I’d figured it out the previous summer.
Afterwards, people came up individually and told me how much what I’d shared meant to them. This book is based on the truth I spoke about.
It’s something I learned from within myself, something I believed saved me. And more than that, the way I set about to do it.
This is a collection of thoughts on what I learned, what worked, what didn’t. Where I succeed and importantly, where I fail daily.
The truth is to love yourself with the same intensity you would use to pull yourself up if you were hanging off a cliff with your fingers. As if your life depended upon it. Once you get going, it’s not hard to do. Just takes commitment and I’ll share how I did it.
It’s been transformative for me. I know it will be transformative for you as well.” (Amazon.com)

Freedom Works Matt Kibbe’s new book Don’t Hurt People and Don’t Take Their Stuff Coming April 2014

Don't Hurt People Take Their Stuff Matt Kibbe Glenn Beck BookDon’t Hurt People and Don’t Take Their Stuff is the new book coming from Freedom Works, Matt Kibbe in April. Kibbe is the President of the largest Tea Party political organization, Freedom Works, and is a staunch Libertarian. Today Glenn Beck mentioned the book and what it contains and it isn’t much different than what the title suggests. The America of 2014 is one where more and more people are breaking one of the most simple rules of life, “Thou Shalt Not Covet.” People are willing to get a head in life at the expense of others. And people think it’s OK to hid behind the anonymity of the internet and insult others. Or that an agenda trumps the large groups of people. America is being redistributed and too many people are OK with that, and it’s sad.

Click here to pre-order Don’t Hurt People and Don’t Take Their Stuff

From the New York Times bestselling author of Hostile Takeover and President of FreedomWorks—”the most influential Tea Party-aligned group in Washington” (New York Times)—comes this passionate defense of libertarianism, the first manifesto of the libertarian movement.

Libertarianism is one of the hottest political movements in contemporary America, animating both the right and left with its emphasis on personal liberty. Espoused everywhere from young activists on college campuses to the up-and-coming stars of the right wing like Marco Rubio and Rand Paul, libertarian ideology is gripping frustrated conservatives and political contrarians across the nation. In addition, figures on the right, including Ron Paul, Glenn Beck, and the Tea Party, have all rallied around the libertarian mantra and raised its profile in the national consciousness.

Don’t Hurt People and Don’t Take Their Stuff is a rational yet deeply felt argument supporting the individual against the oppression of the collective. Time and time again, Matt Kibbe points out, the political and corporate establishment in Washington consolidates its power by infringing upon basic American freedoms—destroying the principles that made the United States unique in history. He also offers a clear vision and action plan for the fight to be free. (Amazon.com)
