In the words
of Harvard economist Niall Ferguson, the United States is
“an empire on the edge of chaos.” Why? Glenn Beck thinks
the answer is pretty simple: Because we’ve turned our backs
on the Constitution.
Yes, our country
is financially broke, but that’s just a side effect of our
broken spirit, our broken faith in government, the broken
promises by our leaders, and a broken political system that
has centralized power at the expense of individual rights.
There is a lot
of work ahead, but we can’t move forward until we first
understand how we got here. Starting with the American Revolution,
Glenn takes readers on an express train through 234 years
of history, culminating with the Great Recession and the
bipartisan recklessness of Presidents Bush and Obama. It’s
the history lesson we all wished we’d had in school. (Did
you know, for example, that FDR once made a key New Deal
policy decision based on his lucky number?)
Along the way,
you’ll see how everything you thought you knew about the
political parties is a lie, how Democrats and Republicans
alike used to fight for minimum government and maximum freedom,
and how both parties have been taken over by a cancer called
“progressivism.” By the end, you’ll understand why no president,
no congress and no court can fix this problem alone. Looking
toward them for answers is like looking toward the ocean
for drinking water— it looks promising, but the end result
the trail of lies that brought us here, Broke exposes the
truth about what we’re really facing. Most people have seen
pieces of the puzzle, but very few have ever seen the whole
picture—and for very good reason: Our leaders have done
everything in their power to hide it. If Americans understood
how dire things really are, they would be demanding radical
reform right now. Despite the rhetoric, that’s not the kind
of change our politicians really believe in.
provides the hope that comes with knowing the truth. Once
you see what we’re really up against, it’s much easier to
develop a realistic plan. To fix ourselves financially,
Glenn argues, we have to fix ourselves first. That means
some serious introspection and, ultimately, a series of
actions that will unite all Americans around the concept
of shared sacrifice. After all, this generation may not
be asked to storm beaches, but we are being asked to do
something just as critical to preserving freedom.
great stories from history, chalkboard-style teachable moments,
custom illustrations, and Glenn Beck’s trademark combination
of entertainment and enlightenment, Broke makes the case
that when you’re traveling in the wrong direction, slight
course corrections won’t cut it—you need to take drastic
action. Through a return to individual rights, an uncompromising
adherence to the Constitution, and a complete rethinking
about the role of government in a free society, Glenn exposes
the idea of “transformation” for the progressive smokescreen
that it is, and instead builds a compelling case that restoration
is the only way forward.
A plan to destroy
America, a hundred years in the making, is about to be unleashed
. . . can it be stopped?
There is a powerful
technique called the Overton Window that can shape our lives, our
laws and our future. It works by manipulating public perception
so that ideas previously thought of as radical begin to seem acceptable
over time. Move the Window and you change the debate.
Change the debate and you change the country.
For Noah Gardner,
a twenty something public relations executive, it's safe to say
that political theory is the furthest thing from his mind. Smart,
single, handsome and insulated from the world's problems by the
wealth and power of his father, Noah is far more concerned about
the future of his social life than the future of his country.
But all of that changes
when Noah meets Molly Ross, a woman who is consumed by the knowledge
that the America we know is about to be lost forever. She
and her group of patriots have vowed to remember the past and fight
for the future—but Noah, convinced they're just a bunch of freaky
conspiracy-theorists, isn't interested in lending his considerable
skills to their cause.
And then the world
attack on U.S. soil shakes the country to the core and puts into
motion a frightening plan, decades in the making, to transform America
and demonize all those who stand in the way. Amidst the chaos,
many don't know the difference between conspiracy theory and conspiracy
fact—or, more importantly, which side to fight for.
But for Noah, the
choice is clear: Exposing the plan, and revealing the conspirators
behind it, is the only way to save both the woman he loves and the
individual freedoms he once took for granted.
After five back-to-back
#1 New York Times bestsellers, national radio and Fox
News television host Glenn Beck has delivered a ripped-from-the-headlines
thriller that seamlessly weaves together American history, frightening
facts about our present condition, and a heart-stopping plot.
The Overton Window

We've all been in those mind-numbing, stomach-churning,

arguments with his Idiot Friend live on the air have provided

Beck Program. Now, in the bestselling tradition of America's
March to Socialism, Glenn collects his most memorable on-air
dimwit debates in IDIOTS UNPLUGGED, an original audio program

Glenn's use of facts and reason to silence his
idiot Friend (played to know-nothing perfection by series regular
Pat Gray) has become a popular highlight of his broadcasts.
Offering the best of these exchanges, IDIOTS UNPLUGGED features
Glenn's winning arguments on everything from taxes to global
warming to education to why Lindsey Graham is a big problem
for the Republican Party. After listening, you'll never again
worry about cocktail parties in Manhattan, date-nights in San
Francisco, or sending your daughter off to Berkeley for college.
A collection of radio segments that are both
timely and classic, IDIOTS UNPLUGGED is a reminder of why no
other broadcaster makes the truth as convincing and entertaining
as Glenn Beck.

The Case Against an Out-of-Control
Government, Inspired by Thomas Paine
"If you believe it's time to put principles

Common Sense above all -- then I ask you to read this
Nearly two and a half centuries after Thomas Paine's
masterpiece changed America forever, Glenn Beck revisits
it with one purpose: to galvanize Americans to see past
government's easy solutions, two-part monopoly, and
illogical methods and take back our great country.
Funny. Outrageous. True.
And Now a NY Times #1 Bestseller.

Take poverty, for example.
Over the last forty years, America's ten poorest

Global warming is another issue
that's ripe with lies, distortion and hidden
agendas. For example, how many times have

millions of people? The truth is, it's
actually the other way around: as CO2 has increased,
deaths from extreme weather have decreased.

From massive government spending
to media declarations of the death of capitalism,
Glenn Beck hears the sounds of boots marching
America toward a system of government that bears
a closer resemblance to socialism with each
passing day. To document this, he focuses on
stories that range from the headlines - irresponsible
stimulus spending, greenhouse gas cap-and-trade
programs, instant unionization efforts - to
more obscure local stories that might otherwise
be overlooked, such as Chicago's out-of-towners
tax, and Connecticut's attempt to undermine
the authority of the Catholic Church. He also

of socialistic programs from around the world,

If You Could Change Your Life by Reversing Your
Biggest Regrets, Sorrows and Mistakes...Would You?
#1 New York Times bestselling author and renowned
radio and television host Glenn Beck delivers an instant
holiday classic about boyhood memories, wrenching life
lessons, and the true meaning of the gifts we give to
one another in love.
We weren't wealthy, we weren't poor—we just were.
We never wanted for anything, except maybe more time
When Eddie was twelve years old, all he wanted for
Christmas was a bike. Although his life had gotten harder—and
money tighter—since his father died and the family bakery
closed...Eddie dreamed that somehow his mother
would find a way to have his dream bike gleaming beside
their modest Christmas tree that magical morning.
What he got from her instead was a sweater. "A
stupid, handmade, ugly sweater" that young Eddie
left in a crumpled ball in the corner of his room.
Scarred deeply by the realization that kids don't
always get what they want, and too young to understand
that he already owned life's most valuable treasures,
that Christmas morning was the beginning of Eddie's
dark and painful journey on the road to manhood. It
will take wrestling with himself, his faith, and his
family—and the guidance of a mysterious neighbor named
Russell—to help Eddie find his path through the storm
clouds of life and finally see the real significance
of that simple gift his mother had crafted by hand with
love in her heart.
Based on a deeply personal true story, The Christmas
Sweater is a warm and poignant tale of family, faith
and forgiveness that offers us a glimpse of our own
lives—while also making us question if we really know
what's most important in them.
America - Messages from the Heart and Heartland
There are some things people think
but don't say....
"Political correctness is the
classic Great Idea Gone Wrong. All it's done is shut
us up. It hasn't changed anybody's mind. It hasn't changed
our hearts. It's changed our faces. It's taken every
opinion we have, it's taken every joke we have, and
it's forced us to conceal it and hide it and bury it.
It's made us superficial."

poverty is caused by terrorism. Terror is a tool used
by those seeking power to keep the masses in need of
