Beck: “We’re going to start building towns”

Get Glenn Live! On TheBlaze TV

Don’t miss tonight’s small business special on GBTV!

Remember when the left thought they’d seen the last of Glenn Beck? Since that time Glenn has launched an entire network and landed on the Forbes most powerful celebrities list just behind Jennifer Aniston. But his plans don’t stop there. Glenn gave some hints of his big picture concept, which could be a liberals worst nightmare.

“We have the opportunity for the first time in global history to change the way business is done,” Glenn said on the radio show this morning.

“You’re not going to find Gault’s Gulch. You’ve got to make it inside you,” he said.

He explained that while we are using the internet for things like Facebook, we haven’t really found a way to use it to empower local communities and small businesses. Meanwhile, we are looking to the government in order to create jobs in an increasingly poor economy and mounting national debt.

“I’m sorry, the government doesn’t create jobs,” Glenn said, “The government create more bureaucrats.”

And what happens when the government creates jobs? They need to pay for them – and they do that by raising taxes on people and businesses.

“You know what makes us unique. People who have ingenuity. People who have problem solving skills,” Glenn said.

Glenn said that he has met with small business owners, and is even hosting a special on GBTV tonight with small businesses.

But one of the things he wants small businesses to do is focus on making things here in America and creating American jobs.

“I’m tired of giving my money to people that are trying to knife the Constitution in the back. I’m tired of going to global corporations that are shipping jobs overseas. There is a way to create things. There is a way,” he said.

“You just have to think completely out of the box, and we’re doing it. And the beginning of it is the Marketplace.”

Earlier this week, Glenn unveiled the new Marketplace from Markdown, a new online store that connects small businesses that have been vetted by Glenn and his team with customers from across the country.

“So here’s what I want you to do. If you’re an entrepreneur, I want you to watch tonight’s show on GBTV, or I want you to go to The Marketplace at markdown.com. And you look at it. See if it’s something you are interested in,” Glenn said.

“We’ll create jobs. Together. And we can do it and give you better value, better products, made here in America. Same price or less. Because we’re redesigning the system. Spit yourself out of the system.”

“This is just the very beginning of this. You start going there and you look at these entrepreneurs. We’re going to start building towns, virtual towns. I’m telling you, telling you, you’ll be the key. You will be the key. We just have to think differently and stop worrying about Washington,” Glenn said.

    WE the PEOPLE are the solution to the nations challenges and problems; we will solve them and make the nation great once again, as soon as we get the blasted Fed’s off of our backs. The new frontier of capitalism is at hand and ready to be developed by those who dream and dare, it will be the small businesses and mom and pop operations, the ‘Made in USA’ pride that will make this happen.

    Get the government out of our lives, out of our business, and out of our freedoms; let us go and make the nation a true beakon on the hill for the world to see.

    We face the future now; choose which it will be, the road to freedom and opportunity; or onto eternal serfdom.

    glenn beck is sounding more and more like a cult leader every day.
    jim jones used the same methodology.
    1.  Both jj and gb found disgruntled, ignorant and lost people and convince them that he has all the answers.
    2.  Both jj and gb made statements saying they were the chosen voice of God.
    3.  Both jj and gb use politics and their followers numbers to intimidate and bully government officials.
    4.  Both jj and gb are well known for going off the deep end with rants, stuffed bunnies, etc…
    5.  Both jj and gb asked their flocks for “donations” to build their own little utopian societies.
    6.  jj’s followers killed a U.S. Congressman, gb’s teachings led to on another murder attempt on a U.S. Congresswoman.

    The list goes on and on.
    So….
    Keep drinking the Kool-Aid beck lovers and faithful.

    Jim Jones was a Liberal, you idiot.

    This is a good time to remind everyone what strtlk really is:

    You’ve been caught in your lies and have no credibility here. You’re a Wikipedia sailor and a lying puke.

    1. As mtclayboy you claimed that you served on a BOOMER. As strtlk you claimed not to know what a Boomer or a SSBN was “I don’t care” were your exact words. You also stated that you didn’t know where Bangor, Wa. was which is where Boomers (submarines) are fitted for duty.
    Any real Submariner would know that. You didn’t!

    2. You then changed your story and claimed that you were on a BOOMER. You lied.

    3. As mtclayboy you claimed that you had damaged your ears while serving on a Submarine. As strtlk, you claimed that you damaged your ears while serving on a submarine.

    4. As mtclayboy you claimed that you joined the Navy and served for five years on a submarine but according to the timeline you gave that was proven to be a lie. You lied.

    5. As mtclayboy you said that you were a Fireman. As strtlk, you claimed you were a Fireman.

    6. As mtclayboy and as strtlk, you posted the same bigotry and hate against Glenn Beck almost word for word even using the same spelling and grammatical errors and focusing on the children. I’ve posted many of them here already.

    Are you catching on everyone? He’s a liar plain and simple and nothing he claims can be believed. Take your bigotry and hate and Phony Soldier ID and leave us honest people alone?

    I don’t agree with everything Glenn says and I certainly don’t agree with everything about Romney. So I don’t drink anyones Kool-Ade like liberals and democrats.  I as you what are the 5 worst things about obama and his policies that you don’t like.  If you can’t answer that, you are showing that you drink the Kool-Ade.  By the way, I follow Jesus and I drink his communion wine, not Kool-Ade.  Jesus is the only truth.  
    No Jesus, No Peace.
    Know Jesus, Know Peace.

    In the real world, employees are encouraged and rewarded for finding efficiencies, thus lowering the cost of production. In the public sector, that mentality is derided and punished.  Budgets are meant to be completely spent or else next years allocation might be reduced, thus reducing the manager’s perceived bureaucratic power.  I would privatize as much government function as possible, and reward that organization for productivity gains.  It’s been done in Indiana and other states, as well as some prison systems.  The union ‘featherbedders’ can pound salt.

    I usually enjoy Glenn Beck..but lately his newsletters are just one big sales pitch..and this is just more of the same. Checked into some of these Marketplace items..no real product descriptions..no way of really knowing where they come from. When I want to shop, I will shop. Don’t need Glenn Beck to do it..

    I am a Glenn Beck cult follower.  LOL  I knew what strtik was the first time that I read any post from him.  When someone starts calling someone names and has no facts to back up what is said, it is very obvious what he is.  I still read his posts as I need my morning laughter with my coffee.  After coffee, I am then sad to know that someone is so misguided.  Evidently,  he has never read an history book in his life.  Those who choose to ignore history will soon repeat it.  Please keep posting strtik as it is humorous what you say and I hope you are posting on voting day so that you will be unable to vote.

    Again I say it – This is the single most important project Glenn has devoted himself to. We need to stop trading our labor and capital with companies that are led/owned by people who are against us on a fundamental level. We need to spend money with each other and get them to have to come to us.

    But we must not forget that competition is good, and it’s not going to help us just to spend extra or the same on equivalent or inferior products. We need to keep competitive, even among each other so that the icentive to improve is always there.

    But the difference must be that our businesses do not lobby for any government favors, either for ideological programs or competitive edges. The difference must be that our businesses do not lobby for things like government funded abortions or forced secularization, or more regulations, or favoratism in the tax code. Our businesses must only lobby for a restoration of our Constitutional Republic. We need to lobby for a true free market. And by lobby, I mean that when we do spend money on politics, that it’s only to vet politicians that truly represent our interests – lower taxes, eliminate many taxes altogether, eliminate many of the social programs, eliminate unconstitutional regualtion, eliminate superfluous government agencies, a restoration of our rights that have been infringed upon, and justice to be served to anyone that violates their oaths of office. And yes, this last part is essetial as it seals the deal. It’s not enough to change things with votes then be okay with those who have torn our country apart going their merry way. There must be justice to set a precedent so that this history does not repeat itself.

    This is so important, we must succeed. I say MUST. We can not win a political war in which we fund our opposition. We need an alternative – more than an alternative. We need to forge a complete market that stands alone and allows us to become independent of the corporate fascism and socialism that are eating us alive.

    If I were President I would create jobs by firing people. Government people. Government is too big . We can’t compete with china and others when companies are having to feed the insatiable hunger of washington.

    And from exactly what moral high ground do you preach Peace, American ? 

  • Zooropa Fly

    Is this another example of America’s complete ignorance of the English language, or deliberate ‘toilet humour’ ?  Does your God that you quote so often endorse such filthy, low-life remarks ?

  • landofaahs

    Certainly not from my own purity but peace is not the abscense of conflict, it’s the trust in Christ one has in the midst of it.

  • landofaahs

    I am a work in progress and a sinner also. I just have a weakness in that I cannot stand to let stupidity go unabashed. I will continue to be “flush” with comments.

  • Zooropa Fly

    Ok, do you support the destruction of Iran then, out of interest ?

  • Zooropa Fly

    I’ll keep the Domestos nearby then..

  • landofaahs

    Warn everyone who is half decent to get out of their and leave the muslims there and then Israel can flush ‘em like a toilet for all I care.

  • Zooropa Fly

    Those words (landofaahs), are the words of someone with a mindset no different to that of the hardest Nazi. If you believe yourself to be a ‘good’ person, I’m afraid you’re mistaken. You’re views are as anti-christian as they could be. You are an evil extremist.

    Glenn,    I’ve been away for a while but I’m back and  excited as ever but moreso;  where do you get your ideas.   I know and so does the Lord…..thank you honey….I’m on my way to markdown.com now.

    By the way you might not have bank tellers!!!  But automatic teller machines require people that service them and also more places to get money so we save money not having to drive to the bank all the time. Bet the jobs created building and installing machines and the money made per transaction at atm’s brings in more money to pay these extra people. 

  • Jacques Wibier

    Glen is pointing to Father, son and holy spirit. He promotes God and  love your neighber all the time. Now follow him in all his endeavors. We as God’s people can recover America for God.

  • landofaahs

    I don’t follow Glenn or any other human being. As Paul said, “Who is Peter and Who is Paul?” I follow Christ.

  • Jacques Wibier

    Soo do I,But even you admit you follow Paul in his recomendation. We are all here to contribute.

  • landofaahs

    Paul’s words? Not so much but the words spoken by the Holy Spirit through Paul, but I can take someones adivce without being their devotee. We as Christians listen and follow the words of the prophets, but really they are the words from God. More to the point, Paul was CHOSEN by CHRIST. Glenn has not and sorry but neither was Joseph Smith in my opinion, but you may follow whom you will.

  • landofaahs

    Read my words again. Paul was speaking GOD’S WORDs Not his own, so I am not following Paul’s advice but the Spirit who spoke through Paul. Does that compute with you? The Disciple clearly said the they did not speak the words of men but of Christ. Are you trying to tell me that Glenn is some kind of phophet? If he is, I would like him to say it in his own words.
    God spoke though his prophets, his words, they were not the words of Abraham etc. unless the words were credited to them. Prophecy and gospel were spoken by God.

  • landofaahs

    I thought of another way to explain if necessary. I trust the Bible because I believe it is the word of God, but I can learn from people like Wycliffe,Luther,Melanchthon,Calvin and even Hobbs, but I do not follow them. It’s not the paper that makes the Bible valuable but the words thereon.

  • landofaahs

    I don’t follow any mere man. Glenn has too much ADD and is all over the map. Besides that, I see Glenn using his media platform as a part of his Mormon ministry which is fine, but I’m not into that. I have my own beliefs that differ. I will be satisfied to agree where we can and disagree where I must. I’m not meaning to offend, but being truthful.
