Frontiersman Davy Crockett once said "You can go to hell - I'm going to Texas!"
The New York Daily News .. Glenn Beck is relocating to the Lone Star State in the wake of his departure from the cable news world.
Beck recently sold his New Canaan, Conn., mansion for $3.6 million.

hope it has a koi pond, maybe even a Bush next door?
He's gonna have to learn how to say
Hook 'em horns! and How 'bout dem boys?
Hey, Is that thing loaded?
Enjoy the change in scenery and weather.
One more reason to love Texas!
He wants to be near his hero.
If Texas had an ocean.. and no mosquitos.. maybe.. I might vacation there. :-)
I beleive this is temporary until he can get his fortified compound built out on the plains where his guards in their towers can see for miles. And I’m serious. If I had his money and his enemies it’s what I’d be doing.
I sincerely doubt his family will face the ridicule; if they opt to join a crowd in a park and watch a movie, play or other presentation.
Texans, as a rule, are polite and respectful.
I strongly believe, that if some scum treated Glenn and his family the way they were treated in New York; other Texans would ensure that the scum was spitting teeth into next week.
I would have guessed the YFZ ranch in San Angelo.
He should snag a spot near the secret underground facilities on the high Plains of Colorado or maybe Wyoming ..
This estate apparently is owned by baseball player Jorge Piedra and Swarovski heiress Vanessa Piedra.
We have beaches!!!
Too hot for me..
It’s 100 plus degrees a day there in the 6-10 day extended forecast
but the humidity hasn’t been too bad with the drought
Chance of Rain . 0%
Near his Hero?
Who might that be?
There will be no Bush next door.
Wow, the hateful remarks on that website shows just how nasty libs can be. They are a source of embarrassment to this country.
LOL , Thanks for that. I’ve heard rumor of a gulf down that direction... do the dogs have to be on a leash on the beaches ?
We’re due to make a run to Carmel with the dogs.. that sand looks very similar. white and powdery ..
>>I beleive this is temporary until he can get his fortified compound built out on the plains where his guards in their towers can see for miles. And Im serious. If I had his money and his enemies its what Id be doing.<<
That makes sense, especially when one factors in what his church teaches.
On a related note, next weekend I’m driving one of my cars from my home in Seattle to my small farm in Kentucky. It will be loaded to the gills with the last of our stuff, sans what we will bring out on our final trip in the Scion xB. I’ll be bringing all my guns with me on this trip (and yes, I checked the gun transport laws in all the states we’ll be passing through). And I bought it two weeks before Urkel’s election, with about 30% of the reason being a “compound” for the collapse (which I expect to happen before the next election - the election activities actually being part of the catalyst).
We’ll be there for a couple of weeks working with builders to get a 40x60 sheet metal building up and refinancing with the existing house. And talk about the Lord’s timing. I got a notice from AMEX this morning that they doubled my credit limit AGAIN. Good time to refi.
That was sad. another black eye for New York City.. the ‘most tolerant’ city in the world.
That’s great news. And the first thing he should do after he arrives is tell the RINOS in the Texas Senate what a bunch of
puss!es they are for letting the TSA and Sanctuary Cities
Texas Senate Republicans need to change their tampons and switch to the Democratic party.
He’s not listening to General Sheridan.
The horns are 5-7, (had to get my hands a little dirty to get that factoid), and it’s always loaded.
Good for Glenn!
This country keep goin’ the way it’s goin’, I’ll be ready to move to the Republic of Texas too.
He shoulda talked to me first. He will have to get used to hail and tornado warnings, which I never could. I used to have to go to school up there for my job. I bet I had 30 courses, at week or two at a time. 20 of them had tornado’s and hail involved. One tornado hit my apartment complex and collapsed the roof. I was in the 2nd floor and just got wet. My truck got some dimples though with the inevitable hail storm. I’m not kidding, almost every time I was up there there were weather warnings. Other than that, welcome to Texas.
white and powdery ..
You want white and powdery then stay east of the Mississippi River confluence with GOM.....
I guess Connecticut’s Dept.Of Revenue won’t be sponging of of Glenn much longer.
“Too hot for me..

I spent 3 days, this week, camping with my son at Lake Texoma. Was it hot? Hell yes! is was hot. It builds a young
mans character. He’s nine. And dad gets to lose some weight.
In January I will golf on our sunny 65 degree days.
I love Texas.
Best story .... He kicked a fellow workers lunch bag out of his hand and sent it flying after the co-worker pissed him off. If any back stabbing “Weasel” activity at work and he gets the scent, he gets in the face of the “Weasel”.
When we were kids, he was the cop on the playground. He routinely scheduled fist fights with any punk who dared pick on a smaller kid. He's take his shots, get his nose bloodied, but he'd stand his ground every time and never lose.
Texoma , is that northernish , closer to Oklahoma it sounds?
I grew up in lake country, Minnesota. nothing like a hot day, a cool lake..
I hear ya on the weight. used to bale hay and straw in heat, that’s a good workout too.
Kinda like my Grandfather told me America was all about(he was a WW I navy vet, The Great White Fleet)
With 370 miles of Texas beach you should be able to find a spot.
Lately, I have been thinking about an abandoned missile silo in the midwest.
As the man criss-crosses America he sees the same sign in church after church. "Call Heaven, $20 dollars".
After visiting every state in the country his journey ends in Galveston, Texas. He enters a beautiful white church built in the 1800's. It is a stunning place. But something is different. There is a phone in the back of the church but the sign says "Call Heaven, 20 cents".
The man finds the priest and asks him why in his church the call to heaven is only 20 cents. The priest chuckles and replies, "because it is a local call".
Let me see if I get this correct...
GB is leaving NY for TX. He is doing it BEFORE July 1 so that he can claim TX as residence AND not pay NY taxes.
Rush and Boortz move to FL and GB moves to TX, all to avoid paying liberal state taxes. That will make a liberal’s head explode.
The Gulf of Mexico come pretty close to approximating one, with warmer water than the West Coast and nicer beaches than the East. Mosquitoes? Can't help you there, but have you ever been to Maine in June?
good for him.
last person (with money) leaving NY, please turn out the lights
Smart move. Wish I could.
But Rush is audited every single year. They want their taxes up there...
Actually, those comments gave me hope that, if Texas ever were to secede, all the libs might just say, "Sure! Go ahead, you backward-ass hicks. We don't need Texas!" And then all my dreams would come true: I could live in the Republic of Texas without my sons having to die for it.
Cali's got mosquitoes, and Texas has beaches.
No.. I’ve never been to Maine, period.. farthest northeast I ever made it was Boston or so.. I hear its pretty,, wife has been thru there a couple times in the fall.
“Texoma , is that northernish”
Yes. It’s on the Oklahoma/Texas state line. But, the water is not exactly cool. More like lukewarm bath water.
I agree. He’s leasing a home because he is building his retreat out in the boonies somewhere. When we heard Glenn was sellig his Conn home and a lot of his possessions we moved up our timetable for bugging out of the burbs to the mountains. The fact that he is moving to Texas tells me he knows something big. I’m sure people in the know call Beck and tell him stuff all the time.
I spent a little time in Tulsa toasting, the pool was hot too.. thank goodness the beer was cold in the lounge.
Beck's place is in Westlake near Grapevine (between Dallas and Ft. Worth). Bush lives just N. of Downtown Dallas in the Highland Park area.
It’s a beautiful State. Acadia National Park is very nice for a non-wilderness scenic experience. But if you don’t like mosquitoes and you’re there in the summer don’t go in the woods! They swarm like hungry piranhas and aren’t all that much smaller. That is at least what I remember from a family vacation there many moons ago. A week’s camping on South Padre cooking fresh caught Gulf shrimp in a wok on an open fire, drinking Lone Star tall boys, is a more pleasant memory.
