Glenn Beck and his wife just bought a home in Texas for $3.9 million, according to the Real Estalker.

Back in April, Beck put his New Canaan, Conn. home on the market, and yesterday, he had his final show. Now, it's off to Texas.

The 7,900 square foot is in an exclusive neighborhood in Westlake, Texas, according to the listing.

I guess he wanted to move to a Texas, a state that remotely resembles a republic and remembers what states rights really means.

And a state that is red. And, not the RED associated with the liberal states.

I think he and Rush Limbaugh should join forces to bring down the elite media. Both have considerable media empires of their own.

Vaquero is the same subdivision the Jonas brothers live in. It has a really nice golf course too.

I did some work there on several houses including one for Tony Banks the old cowboys quarter back.

This one is actually one of the lower end ones, it just has alot of footage.

so what house did he buy/rent? yesterday it was a home owned by a sports figure that had a wall around it and he was renting it for 20K a month.

Good for Glen no matter what house it is. But one of the two stories must be wrong.

I read somewhere a couple of days ago that beck left the New York/New Jersey area because he was afraid ‘that he’d lose his soul’. He had to get out of the area and the news business.

I get that. Several years ago I worked in a nursing home for disabled adults. After a few months, I was bawling in my boss’s office about some horrible situation that I’d seen and he reassured me that I’d ‘harden’ after a few years and things like that wouldn’t bother me any more.

I thought about it and decided that I didn’t want to be the kind of person who wasn’t bothered by sad/unjust/horrible situations. I felt like I was losing my humanity.

So I quit.

It’s the same reason I never watched horror movies. I didn’t want to be desensitized to blood and gore and screaming.

Welcome to Texas, Mr. Beck. You’ve chosen a beautiful home. I hope you and your family are happy here and that your new venture does well.

BTW, I must warn new comers - it’s freakin’ hot and dry and allergies suck here! lol!

Wow, you really think Beck and Limbaugh are that powerful?

If given the opportunity, without the potential legal reprisals, the MSM would squash them like bugs on the windshield with the blessing of liberal Washington.

ABC, NBC, ABC and now CNN loved the idea when they alone molded, shaped, manipulated the American mind perceptions without any opposing forces

Not alone no but if you don't recognize their power, you aren't paying attention. Glenn drove Van Jones from the white house single handedly and Shirley Sherrod said that the white house wanted her gone before her story showed up on Beck's show.

All I can think of when I see a house like that is I wouldnt want to pay the electric bill. My 3600 sq. ft. house in Houston cost me 800 per month for electricity in July. Water was another 100.

I dont thin it is a coincidence that alot of celebrities are moving to the Lone Star State. Look at Sandra Bullock and some others. Residents of Texas, no state income tax. Why not?

I did the same.

If Obama wins the next election...it may not be THAT much longer before Texas is an independent republic again.

Remember, they never ratified the Constitution...they were annexed. It might not be sucession-sucession...you know...like rape-rape.

"bringing down the elite media" and running off a POS libtard like Van Jones are vastly two different things

I know Limbaugh and Beck are very powerful forces in shaping american minds, but they aren't bringing down the media

Granted I wish they could, but it isn't happening.

Good old market forces will eventually change the America media. Change or die...

The other reports from yesterday are saying that Beck rented the property for $20,000/mo. This property apparently is owned by baseball player Jorge Piedra and Swarovski heiress Vanessa Piedra. It was listed for $5.4 million back in 09 is reported down to $3.9 million.

I would for sure rent before buying. Big stop up from an apartment in the city and commuting to Conn. The light pours into this house, but they can do better.

I’m sure Glenn will be a good neighbor! However. I wish he’d go somewhere else to live. I can barely drive in Austin anymore for all the thousands of people moving here. I kind of long for the good ole days when it was just us Texans but—guess I’m just getting old

Good heavens - you must be in the City and have Center Point! In the ‘burbs I have 2800 sq ft and pay between $160 and $200 a month in the summer. High for my neighborhood but I run my business out of my home. Water bill including twice a week trash pick-up is always $49.13. Our MUD should be paid out next year and we will then regretfully be part of the city of Pearland so water will probably go up.

Don’t think that he got such a deal on that house whether he is renting it or bought it. We have a 25,000 sq. foot one for about the same price as that in the Washington DC area. Go figure. Even in the Great Falls area, you can get a 7000 footer for under 2 mil.
