Glenn Beck's New Book! (Prepare To Laugh)

I get it now! Glenn Beck's job has been to be the fake, stupid, and non nonsensical caricature of the real reporter Alex Jones. This is the icing on the cake though:

Ron Paul 2016

Glenn also had a book out I see on 11.20.12

Called Agenda 21. Co-written by Harriet Parke. Never heard of this book till today, saw it in the book talk section in the bottom right corner of this site. If you wana see it, this is a link:

Glenn Beck makes more money per year than Lady Gaga, Oprah

Glenn Beck makes more money per year than Lady Gaga, Oprah and Rush Limbaugh.

No joke.

I am certainly not opposed to people making money, but I find Beck to be a bit of a carnival ring master and side show magician.

Well that's what a Forbes' journalist claims,

Peronally I don't think Beck made $90m last year as the link claims. People can be wrong.

"Making Money"

simply means that he is attracting more attention than Oprah, Gaga, and Rush.

Like it or not, FRN's are just how we keep score in our world.

If Beck is attracting more than all those fucks, guess who else he's beating in terms of attention: Ron Paul, Rand Paul, Judge Nap, Peter Schiff, Fill in the blank ______________.

He may not be perfect. He may not be scoring a first down. But he's moving the ball forward. Which is more than all the complainers here -- combined!! -- are doing.

He's not moving the ball

He's not moving the ball forward, he's trying to move it to another court. IMO Glenn Beck is a fraudulent, infiltrator, shill. I've been aware of Glenn Beck since at least 2007, and I immediately picked up on his character and style. He's proven himself to be deceitful, shock-jockey and untrustworthy. I'm not surprised that he'd follow the money, the audience, and switch his gears up completely to cash in on and dupe the Tea Party/Libertarian/Liberty crowd. Glenn Beck is an actor. A very well paid actor it seems.

Honey Boo Boo

attracts more than all of these fine gentleman as well. I'd love to be the one to figure out how to fix that...

I'm sure if Ron, Rand, Judge

I'm sure if Ron, Rand, Judge Nap, Peter Schiff, Ben Swann, etc. were willing to sell out & have a prime time tv show on a network with alot of viewers they would attract ALOT OF ATTENTION. glenn beck is doing nothing but mudding the waters, confuse, distract, etc.

LOL! With all that "attention" he must have the same agent as

Kim Kardashian.

So much unseen talent.

Glenn Beck is waking up more people than most of us.

GB has definitely garnered more interest in conspiracy and truth than I have. He has a huge following and gets paid more a year than many will make in their lifetimes to talk and write. Because of GB millions of neoconservatives have been introduced to the terms 'Agenda 21' and 'New World Order'. People will read this book and start doing their own research, as many of GB's listeners now follow Jack Hunter, Rand Paul, and other libertarians GB has hosted on his show.

You want to make fun of a book, how about this one?

I like your style, Seven.

GB has definitely garnered more interest in conspiracy and truth than I have.

More than I have, too.

BTW, that is a much better book to make fun of, lol!

It's not like glenn beck

It's not like glenn beck actually wrote this book :)

What is the title


Ron brought the Liberty movement together, Rand is expanding the crap out of it! :)

I don't get the joke

Sorry. I might be a little dense. But I'm a lover of liberty too. Please don't leave me out. I don't get the joke. Can you explain it, please?

Sorry for the delay

There is no such thing as the EYE of Molloch.

Ron brought the Liberty movement together, Rand is expanding the crap out of it! :)


It's most often called the "All-seeing Eye" or the "Eye of Horus" but it's actually called the "Eye of Providence."

As soon as I saw his book title I had a good laugh too.

Not that I'm into defending Beck or anything...

But this is the sequel to his book The Overton Window, which, believe it or not, was a decent read. It was trashy pulp fiction, hyperbolic, not very well written - written for say an 8th grade reading level. But the subject matter was something of interest to me, and to people here.

I think that people here who enjoy reading, and who are able to put their prejudices aside against the author in order to actually the book for a spin, I think you'll find both some enjoyment and education. Hell, you can get it on Amazon for under a dollar. And certainly in my neck of the woods, there are plenty of copies available for loan in the Minuteman Library system.

So it is all well and good to laugh at him ripping off these age old ideas in our neck of the 'conspiracy' realm, or however you want to classify it. But remember these are best selling books. And both of them have 4 star ratings on Amazon.

Again, I'm not defending Beck, but I'll give credit where it is due, and I'm not going to try to pull him down for what he's doing. All I say is read the book before you ridicule & make fun.

All that being said, I love reading and I also love a book that will teach me something and give my brain something to chew on while I'm being entertained. The Overton Window did that for me, and I'm looking forward, at some point, to reading this book. Though I doubt I'll pay full retail for it, because I don't have the time right now to read it.

And for the 1 in 20 people for whom what I just said makes any sense at all, another good fiction read - which also didn't do well, but which I reviewed here back many moons ago when it came out is:

Army of the Republic. This one can be gotten for a penny on Amazon, and it would be a penny well spent.

Peace Gold Liberty Out.

Good Call...

Army of the Republic... I'll second that one.

NOTE: I am not advocating violence in any way. The content of the post is for intellectual, theoretical, and philosophical discussion. FEDS, please don't come to my house.

HEY! If you're looking for infotainment...

..(*blush* *stammer* *scuff ground with toe*).. might I -- um -- suggest (*pause* *swallow* *clear throat*) my own "humble" effort (cited below), complete with sex, violence, and cartoon villains. Also a LOT of alternate history, counterfactual cartography, and alternative lifestyles and political structures thrown in!
(plus cameo appearances by Rush Limbaugh and Fidel Castro)

Thank you for you irreplaceable time.

I agree. It was a little

I agree. It was a little juvenile, but entertaining. I also liked that he brought the Overton Window concept to the masses. There are things that I will never forgive Glenn Beck for, but I think they're due to lack of thought and character flaws, more than his being part of any conspiracy. He's doing some good by giving fresh minds something to cut their teeth on.

Bringing the Overton Window concept to the masses was key

I wonder how many people here know about it?

There was a post about it here before:

Agreed Also!

I very much dislike GB, but when a friend gave me his book 'Agenda21' I was actually pleasantly surprised. It was pretty simplistic, in fact it brought back a lot of memories of reading Lois Lowry's The Giver in 6th grade, but that's my only true complaint about it.

Agenda 21? This one?

I have heard a lot about Agenda 21, but with everything else, I've never sat down to research it. Would you recommend this book as a good resource? Honestly, I don't know where to start. The internet is full of bullshit (in case you haven't noticed). It is hard to figure out what is true.

Is Beck's version a reasonable place to start? If not, what is?

I read The Giver also. Why is that a complaint, that it bought up memories of that book? Wasn't it a good book? (Honestly it has been so long that I barely remember it.)

After reading the first chapter

compliments of Amazon, I'd say no to your question. This looks more like Beck's version of '1984'.
Agenda 21 is how the UN/TPTB implements 'sustainable development' (SD) and is full of recommendations on how to attain world-wide communism - SD = communism. Just look at how Gro Bruntland defined SD:
"meeting the needs of the present without compromising the ability of current and future generations to meet their own needs."
If that doesn't read like Marx' "from each according to his ability, to each according to their needs," then I don't know what does.
The only way to know what A21 is about is to read A21. Here are some of the things invented/ promoted by A21: landcare - Ch 14, public-private partnerships - Ch 30, Smart Growth - Ch 7, population control - Ch 6.... if you read A21 with just a little bit of care and remembering how they always change words (ex: A21's 'human settlements' now called 'Smart Growth'), then you'll understand just how diabolical it is.

An honest question

Michael, seeing as how you are the owner of one of the most frequented libertarian websites on the internet, have you ever been approached by people interested in co-opting the Liberty Movement? It seems like it would be a very viable strategy to pursue by such folks.

Just curious.

An honest answer

Hi D. Mr. Walters. First of all, let me thank you for your contributions to the Daily Paul, which help to make this, as you say, 'one of the most frequented libertarian sites on the internet.' I do enjoy your contributions, which make up the diversity of opinion here.

There are some popular libertarian sites that do not allow comment. They would rather be walled gardens, than open forums. As much as possible, I want to keep the DP open to a diverse array of voices, because thought does not stand still. It is constantly evolving and progressing. And in this regard, even conservatives must progress!

- - - - -

But to answer your question: have you ever been approached by people interested in co-opting the Liberty Movement?

The answer, no doubt, is yes. But is isn't as simple as you make it. Those who wish to coopt the movement do not announce their intentions:

"Hi Michael! I'm interested in coopting the Liberty Movement! Seeing as you have this website, can you help?"

No, it is never that simple. If only it were.

There are many ways one could coopt the movement. Since it is never clear, one (myself) must be forever vigilant. To start with, one must understand what "The Liberty Movement" means.

What does it mean? What are its ends and goals?

This site began as a tribute to, and full-fledged support for Ron Paul. The Original Intent (capitals intended) was to elect Ron Paul president. I was naive enough at the time to think such a thing was possible. In retrospect, I think I was a little delusional. Not at the time of course, only in retrospect.

This is an important distinction. Because at the time, I thought I was completely rational. "Ron Paul can win!!!" That's what I thought.

History has rendered a verdict. And that verdict is that I was wrong. Ron Paul couldn't win. The only thing that matters is: He didn't win.

- - - - -

So it isn't so simple, the answer to your question.

One answer is: Of course! EVERYONE wants to co-opt it. Let's start at the top, with the GOP itself.
They would love to co-opt it. They want "The Ron Paul vote."

How about The Establishment? They would love to co-opt it? How? By discrediting it. By filling the DP with all manner of ridiculous conspiracies. "Jeff Bauman was an actor who never had legs to begin with!" etc.

Then there are the Rothbardian Anarchists, who would love to take over this site. (I assume you're among them, and correct me if I'm wrong). They would love to be able to lead all of these pople to their specific and narrow ideology.

But Ron Paul is not an anarchist, as he finally made clear. Of course, like any politician, he kissed your ass by saying "I'm not there yet..." As if you anarchists are so far ahead of even .... of even Ron Paul. Ha ha ha. Brilliant. Ron Paul is the most brilliant politician ever.

But until Ron Paul "catches up" to you, he remains a proponent of limited government.

So yes, in answer to your question, am I approached by people who want to co-opt the Liberty movement? Yes, all the time.

Divining their intentions is the hard part, because they're all so damn sincere. But I cut them slack, because I was so damn sincere when I thought Ron Paul had a shot at being president.

Hope that answers your question.

An honest answer deserves an honest answer

When I came here, there was no such thing as a "Liberty Movement", ALL banners said, "join the RON PAUL rEVOLution"

Last year, at the RNC, the rEVOLution was co-opted by a Libertarian wing that refused to join Ron Paul in the GOP.. they dubbed themselves, "The Liberty Movement" and have co-opted Ron Paul's message, misleading many people into thinking Ron Paul is a racist anti Israel Jew hater as many of them are (and frankly they look more like jihadists than Patriots).

Those of us who supported Ron Paul, fought the GOP, have had to fight them and do damnage control.. they have been the biggest problem we have because we are constantly having to explain that the Liberty Movement co-opted the rEVOLution in the name of Ron Paul being a Libertarian.

I was a Libertarian when Ron Paul ran in 88.. I did NOT vote for him.. at the time I thought he was just another Republican who couldn't get his message heard in the GOP so he used us.. for all of SIX months he was a Libertarian and then he left.. has been a Republican ever since.

So.. to me, The Liberty Movement is the charade of Libertarian LOSERS who co-opted the rEVOLution because they don't have the guts to get in the fight in the GOP and fight with us.

You've seen the fight first hand and for your part. you encouraged them. I'm a very loyal friend, which I don't confuse with friendly. A friend is LOYAL. I have been LOYAL and I have tolerated a lot of crap from this so called facade called a Liberty Movement.. the Liberty Movement is going to FAIL, and the rEVOLution, now standing with Rand, will prevail.

WE ARE THE FUTURE WE ARE republiCANS, and those who are not with us, are against us, co-opting our message, and twisting it.

I'm telling the TRUTH and YOU know it. Want to see you're rEVOLution art????????

Love, G
