Michelle Malkin’s new book “Who Built That: Awe-Inspiring Stories of American Tinkerpreneurs”

Who Built That Michelle Malkin Glenn BeckGlenn Beck’s publishing company has a new book out tomorrow with conservative superstar Michelle Malkin titled Who Built That: Awe-Inspiring Stories of American Tinkerpreneurs. Glenn and Michelle had talked about her passion for the entrepreneurial spirit and they both settled on her doing a book about it through Mercury Ink. She decided to play off President Obama outrageous comment “You didn’t build that! Someone else made it happen!” Thus lending his comment to Michelle’s book title. Slowly America’s entrepreneurial spirit is dying, however there still are some shining lights like Elon Musk of Tesla Motors and Space X fame. But even he is being overshadowed by Washington DC’s self indulgence on American tax dollars. Get the book and let your children read it, perhaps they might become the next Edison, Tesla, Jobs, or Musk

Firebrand conservative columnist, commentator, Internet entrepreneur, and #1 New York Times bestselling author Michelle Malkin tells the fascinating, little-known stories of the inventors who have contributed to American exceptionalism and technological progress.

In July 2012, President Obama infamously proclaimed: “If you’ve got a business—you didn’t build that. Somebody else made that happen.”

Malkin wholeheartedly disagrees. Who Built That is a rousing tribute to the hidden American capitalists who pioneered everyday inventions. They’re the little big things we take for granted: bottle caps and glassware, tissue paper, flashlights, railroad signals, bridge cables, revolutionary plastics, and more.

Malkin takes readers on an eclectic journey of Continue reading

The Ten Commandments: Still the Best Moral Code by Dennis Prager

The Ten Commandments Best Moral CodeGlenn Beck had one of his radio colleagues on his show today, Dennis Prager. Prager one of the most genuine authentic people you will ever hear is also one of the nicest people you will ever meet. He has written a new book titled The Ten Commandments: Still the Best Moral Code. He and Glenn discussed how even the original Ten Commandments can can make this world a better place.

The most important words ever written are the Ten Commandments. These words changed the world when they were first presented at Mt. Sinai to Israelites, and they are changing it now. They are the foundation stones of Western Civilization.

Given their staggering importance, you would think that all societies, and certainly our educational and religious institutions, would be intent on studying them closely. Sadly, this is not the case. Our schools ignore them and our churches and synagogues take them for granted. But here’s a simple test: Who among us can even name all of the Ten Commandments? And even among those who can name them, how many can explain them in a way that makes sense to the modern eye and ear?

If you are a person of faith, this book will strengthen it; if you are agnostic it will force you to rethink your doubts; if you’re atheist, it will test your convictions. For people who have thought little about the Ten Commandments, as well as for those who have a sophisticated understanding of them, it will be a revelation.

“The Fourth Turning: An American Prophecy” Cycles of History in America

The Fourth Turning
The Fourth Turning
Glenn Beck’s latest book read is actually a reread and rediscovery of The Fourth Turning: An American Prophecy – What the Cycles of History Tell Us About America’s Next Rendezvous with Destiny by Neil Howe and William Strauss. It’s a book from 1997 and from what Glenn said he is familiar with the book but must not have read the book in the past. It is a book we were sure he had read because it would certainly reflect much of what he says is coming to America. It certainly would seem he has read the book now and it appears he will even have the authors on his show on The Blaze TV in the near future.

First came the postwar High, then the Awakening of the ’60s and ’70s, and now the Unraveling. This audacious and provocative book tells us what to expect just beyond the start of the next century. Are you ready for the Fourth Turning?

Strauss and Howe will change the way you see the world–and your place in it. In The Fourth Turning, they apply their generational theories to the cycles of history and locate America in the middle of an unraveling period, on the brink of a crisis. How you prepare for this crisis–the Fourth Turning–is intimately connected to the mood and attitude of your particular generation. Are you one of the can-do “GI generation,” who triumphed in the last crisis? Do you belong to the mediating “Silent Majority,” who enjoyed the 1950s High? Do you fall into the “awakened” Boomer category of the 1970s and 1980s, or are you a Gen-Xer struggling to adapt to our splintering world? Whatever your stage of life, The Fourth Turning offers bold predictions about how all of us can prepare, individually and collectively, for America’s next rendezvous with destiny. (Amazon.com)

Glenn Beck posts his latest read on Facebook “The Mystery of the Shemitah”

the mystery of the shemitahGlenn Beck has been very active on Facebook lately and last night posted his latest book read, The Mystery of the Shemitah: The 3,000-Year-Old Mystery That Holds the Secret of America’s Future, the World’s Future, and Your Future! It must be really good because he said “EVERYONE MUST READ IT”. It seems at though author Jonathan Cahn has another hit on his hand, much like his well received The Harbinger that was Glenn discussed multiple times. No doubt Glenn will talk about Shemitah very soon! It is great to see Glenn so active on Facebook so if you are a fan of Glenn’s hop on Facebook and respond to his posts, you’ll probably get a response at some point. Great to see this interaction from Glenn.

Is it possible that there exists a three-thousand-year-old mystery that…

  • Has been determining the course of your life without your knowing it?
  • Foretells current events before they happen?
  • Revealed the dates and the hours of the greatest crashes in Wall Street history before they happened?
  • Determined the timing of 9/11?
  • Lies behind the rise of America to global superpower… and its fall?
  • Has forecast the rising and falling of the world’s stock market throughout modern times?
  • Lies behind world wars and the collapse of nations, world powers, and empires?
  • Holds key to what lies ahead for the world and for your life?
  • And much more….(amazon.com)

“Finished reading “the mystery of the shemitah” last night. EVERYONE MUST READ IT. I believe it to be true.

This am I got up and read the headlines and I can see the future. I am going to put some puzzle pieces together tomorrow for you, tell me this isn’t going to happen! Please.

Please we have to humble ourselves before Him. Turn back to him. I have a totally different view everything even on the fight against abortion this am. What have we done?

Find a church. One based in action.”

Glenn Beck with Peter Thiel on his book “Zero to One: Notes on Startups, or How to Build the Future”

Zero to One Peter ThielPeter Thiel, co-founder of PayPal and mega entrepreneur, appeared on air with Glenn Beck discussing America’s Future and his new book Zero to One: Notes on Startups, or How to Build the Future. Glenn and Pat tried to discuss something with Peter that is even more despicable than George Soros and that is LinkedIn. Amazingly, it took Glenn 6 years to get Thiel on for an interview. The only person who was harder to get was Ray Kurzweil. Thiel has close connections to Facebook, PayPal, LinkedIn, Tesla, YouTube, and SpaceX. As a strong Libertarian Thiel sees the dangers of big government and how they can stifle growth rather than promote progress and innovation.

If you want to build a better future, you must believe in secrets.

The great secret of our time is that there are still uncharted frontiers to explore and new inventions to create. In Zero to One, legendary entrepreneur and investor Peter Thiel shows how we can find singular ways to create those new things.

Thiel begins with the contrarian premise that we live in an age of technological stagnation, even if we’re too distracted by shiny mobile devices to notice. Information technology has improved rapidly, but there is no reason why progress should be limited to computers or Silicon Valley. Progress can be achieved in any industry or area of business. It comes from the most important skill that every leader must master: learning to think for yourself.

Doing what someone else already knows how to do takes the world from 1 to n, adding more of something familiar. But when you do something new, you go from 0 to 1. The next Bill Gates will not build an operating system. The next Larry Page or Sergey Brin won’t make a search engine. Tomorrow’s champions will not win by competing ruthlessly in today’s marketplace. They will escape competition altogether, because their businesses will be unique.

Zero to One presents at once an optimistic view of the future of progress in America and a new way of thinking about innovation: it starts by learning to ask the questions that lead you to find value in unexpected places. (Amazon.com)

Glenn reading 9_29_14

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.
