Glenn Beck makes it official Hes leaving New York City
Wire Update ^ | April 16, 2011 | Joe Brooks

Posted on 04/16/2011 8:30:21 PM PDT by 2ndDivisionVet

Conservative talk show host Glenn Beck announced Saturday he has finally sold his Connecticut home and will be moving out of New York City in the near future.

After a year of teasing on both his radio and television programs, Beck made the announcement during a live broadcast on GlennBeck.com from Albany, New York. Beck said leaving New York would be part of his post-Fox News life.

Other notes from the broadcast (via @JoeBrooks):

- Glenn Beck said there were Pro-Glenn Protesters outside the theater today.

- When Glenn Beck brought up Donald Trump a few people in the audience began cheering, Glenn replied, “Really?”

- “I don’t know where [Obama is from] I don’t think he’s from where they issue birth certificates – I think he’s from Hell.”

- Glenn in a Satan voice: “Put your little hooves on this paper” refering to Barack Obama’s birth certificate

- ”It’s time to take personal responsibility and it’s time to be honest with the American People.”

- Glenn Beck places Allen West as President and Michelle Bachmann as VP. Someone in crowd yells “Ron Paul” He says I have plans for Ron Paul

- Glenn says that Ron Paul should be Sec of Treasury, and as Secretary of Defense would be… no one, we have Allen West as President.

- Glenn Beck: @theblaze is only the beginning of news and information that i will be providing for radio, television, and internet.

- Glenn Beck: I’m about to build a research department that will utilize the idle brains that we have, retired CIA, military, phd’s

- Glenn Beck: I’m going to make sure that Stephen Colbert and Jon Stewart don’t occupy the space of comedy alone.

- Glenn Beck: What you are about to see in a few months is a new way to communicate with each other …

- Glenn says he going to build a way to deliver news directly to the youth of America.

- Glenn Beck: We were each born with a purpose, born at this time for a reason. I don’t care what your [situation] is, your job is. You were born here for a purpose and the first thing you’ve got to do is… have no fear. Have no fear.

- Glenn Beck: The last thing I will be doing, I will be leaving New York City.

- Glenn Beck: As we build a new media I’m not building it in New York.

- Glenn Beck: [America isn't great] because we only have two crappy castles, one in Florida and one in Anaheim. (joking about Disney’s castles).

- In the Q&A session Glenn says the only time he’d be running is when he’s yelling at other people to RUN! (as in for the hills).

I would definitely vote for that ticket.

I heard he’s moving to Texas...whatever malady he has is made worse by cold temps.....and, isn’t Texas a state without state income taxes?

A lot of the rest made sense to me...he wants to target the “yutes” through the internet and it sounds as if he wants to give Colbert and Stewart a run for their money-—also targeting the “yutes”, as this is where the “yutes” get their political info....yee gads!

I hope he succeeds. There is a method to his ‘madness’ & I think we all owe the man a debt of gratitude. He has tried to do what very few hosts have dared. He’s tried to awaken the American people with knowledge however imperfectly.

Get the “old guys”....the ones that know what’s going on and haven’t been “propagandized”.

I wish Beck luck.
He’s educated many an American.
But, maybe....just maybe...some of this “research” will turn Beck around on the eligibility issue. Maybe, he’ll learn....or maybe, he’ll talk, now that he’s getting out from under the Saudi’s influence at Fox!

For his new headquarters location, I’d suggest Peculiar Missouri, Odd, West Virginia, or maybe Ding Dong, Texas.

But chances are he’ll want to end up in Mormon Country, so it’s got to be Moroni, Utah.

I am not a devoted Beck fan but I have watched him of and on for several years. It doesn't surprise me that he is making the changes he is making. I have been afraid that he was going off the deep end and very soon. He has had some wonderful TV programs but his emotions were too close to the surface. I don't know what is illness is except his vision problems but maybe that is keeping him upset.

No, President Garfield had been a general in the Union Army and was elected senator the same year he won the White House. Only President Lincoln had no other government experience, and he won in a freakish 4-way race when the Democrats were split in 3 sections by slavery and seccessionist issues.

We have wondered for awhile if Glenn is moving to his retreat. And you know he has to have one maybe in Utah. Perhaps he believes its about time for the STHTF. We are going to be going to our place permanently very soon as we tend to think this train is probably going off the track.

When Beck said he was selling his house and most of his possessions some time back we couldn’t think of any other reason except he is re-locating out of the way. He can do a radio show from anywhere.

Once upon a time I met a young lady named Maria Moroni in The Mall of Barstow. December 1977 maybe. Cute little thing with a sweatshirt that said ‘why waltz when you can rock and roll’ under the picture of a Uzi.

First, last and only time I ever saw her, but dang she was cute!

There are more Mormons outside of Utah than inside it. He could go anywhere and have a LDS congregation. California alone has half as many Mormons than in Utah. (But I don't see Beck moving to Cali)

GB acts like a man who has had the crap scared outta him. Changing his job (end of the Fox tv show), changing his residence, being evasive, I’m betting some of the scum-sucking bottom-feeders threatened his wife, kids, or staff.

I hope I’m wrong.

Just remember that in his statement he was not leaving FOX but instead had created a new partnership with them. All the pot shots by all the others on this thread will be surprised once he trumps (no pun intended) them again. Then we will have the pleasure of seeing even more of their smarter than thou comments because their heads will still be exploding.

I think that’s why he runs from the birth certificate question. He doesn’t have the power & protection of Donald Trump or Hillary Clinton.

I'm sure Glenn knows that the birth certificate issue is not a fight that we can win because too many people are involved in covering up the farce. They will protect Obama against all odds. . . perhaps just because he is now the President.

I also have learned a considerable amount of American history from Glenn's program. He always backs up his facts with evidence. I have great respect for the man. His books are well written and inspirational. His media network is awesome and I look forward to seeing where they go from here.

I also wish Glenn Beck good luck and I keep him in my prayers. The left wants to silence him because he's revealed too much and has inspired thousands.

I believe that the bubble is gonna burst - and in a big way - very soon. I know many many conservatives who and doubled or even quadrupled their provisions, consolidated their debts, and in many other ways tried to position themselves for TEOTWAWKI. No panic-buying or air-raid shelters, but practical, common sense stuff.

GB has also spoken of some of the same things and gotten trashed for it.

However one may feel about GB’s topics or his presentation, we owe him a dept of gratitude for vocalizing some of the more malevolent aspects of the present regime.

I’m grateful and concerned about his welfare.

Leftists are some venal MoFo’s.

Glenn once said that at any time he has as many as 15 security threats that require attention from his security people. (It must be very expensive)

I do not.

But I take issue with the implication that LTC West has "nothing else" on his government resume. IMNSHO, his credentials as a US Army artillery officer who led troops in battle, and who put the lives of his men before his career, makes him more qualified than any other potential candidate of any party, regardless of political pedigree or resume.

But who is the representative to which you refer?

President Abraham Lincoln. We elect governors, vice-presidents, generals (flag officers) and senators. Lieutenant colonels are not flag officers and Rep. West has been in office, what, three months now? Obviously, I respect LTC West’s service, but I’m just saying who we’ve elected in our last 235 years.

Something is off about GB. I don’t know why he is openly ridiculing the FACT that Obama has not provided a BC, and has spent millions hiding that. He is a zero, he has no record to speak of. It is a really simple request, show the flippin BC, release all of your records.
