Glenn Beck defaces Mike Rowe's poster - and it sells for how much?

Remember when Mike Rowe and Glenn Beck autographed a "Work Smart AND Hard" poster to be auctioned off to raise money for mikeroweWORKS Foundation? It ended up selling for $12,100 - and Mike Rowe has some ideas on why it ended up doing so well.

From Mike Rowe's Facebook page:

On Sunday, Nov. 10, 2013, a woman named Candace purchased a “Work Smart AND Hard” poster for $12,100.00.

(Plus shipping and handling.)

That’s right. Twelve THOUSAND, one HUNDRED United States DOLLARS.

(Plus shipping and handling.)

The poster in question is identical in almost every way to the hundreds of other autographed posters we routinely sell for $12,000 less than what Candace paid. The only difference? On this particular poster, my signature is accompanied by Glenn Beck’s, along with a few highly personalized, completely original, and decidedly juvenile artistic embellishments.

So – what can we deduce from the unexpected popularity surrounding this particular poster?

Can we assume that any spontaneous doodling by Glenn Beck will increase the value of a thing by approximately $12,000? Possibly.

May we infer that Candace is a woman of sophisticated taste and extraordinary generosity? Obviously.

Might we surmise that the entire notion of Work Ethic Scholarships is beginning to catch on, and that people are eager and willing to support them? Hopefully.

Whatever the reason, I want to personally acknowledge The Munificence of Candace, and thank everyone else who has bid on or purchased my C.R.A.P. (Collectibles Rare And Precious.) There’s more to come.

I also want to thank Glenn Beck for getting the word out on The Blaze. Glenn’s personal contribution, combined with the support of his fans, has brought in well-over $50,000 to the mikeroweWORKS Foundation. Frankly, that kind of largess leaves me speechless.

(Though, obviously, not wordless.)

To better express my gratitude, I’m going to fly to Dallas this week and present Glenn with the very first official copy of The S.W.E.A.T. Pledge, hot off the presses. Hundreds of you have suggested we make these pledges available for purchase, and I’ve learned it’s usually best not to ignore the wishes of hundreds of people.

Glenn, however, deserves the first one. Candace will receive the second one — with my compliments — along with an assortment of newly released “Dirty Commencement Photos.”

Both The S.W.E.A.T. Pledge and new photos are now available HERE: http://profoundlydisconnected.com/shop/

As always,100% of the money raised benefits the mikeroweWORKS Foundation.

Again, many thanks.

Mike Rowe will be joining Glenn Beck tonight at 5pm ET for a special Q&A with TheBlaze audience. Start a fourteen day free trial to watch on TheBlaze TV.

There's been a lot of talk about the idea of a (peaceful) "national divorce" as the Left continues to abandon everything that made America what it is. Well, this week's guest on "The Glenn Beck Podcast" is all for that divorce. Michael Malice is the author of "The Anarchist Handbook" and host of the podcast "Your Welcome." He joined Glenn to talk about how an anarchist would peacefully take on America's greatest challenges — with a smile.

"My rights are not up for discussion," Malice told Glenn. He explained why his version of America will save America, and why, in spite of anxious talk of "national divorce," he has so much hope for the future.

There are new curriculum standards being implemented into schools throughout the nation for health classes that not only go far beyond what's appropriate for young children, but are entrenched in clear political biases, too. Under the standards, third-graders are taught about hormone blockers and endless gender identities, and topics get shockingly graphic for kids as young as 11. Some schools are even teaching their teachers and kids to ignore what parents have to say about these topics. And the worst part may be that many parents are completely unaware what their children are being taught.

Tina Descovich, co-founder of Moms for Liberty, joined "The Glenn Beck Program" to explain exactly what you can ask at your next school board meeting to ensure this "horrifying" curriculum isn't being taught in your kid's school.

It should come as no surprise that a newsworthy story receives more media coverage when released on a Monday than a Friday. The reason is in part due to a large number of news-consuming Americans checking out for the week to focus on their weekend plans rather than the news.

On Monday's radio program, Glenn Beck shared information that President Joe Biden decided to release on Friday — when fewer people would notice — regarding the Climate Finance report. This report is marketed to Americans as "A Roadmap To Build a Climate-Resilient Economy." But Glenn believes the report to be Biden's Great Reset warning shot to banks.

In this clip, Glenn warned that if Americans don't stand together, in eight years we all indeed will own nothing. Watch the clip for the full story. Can't watch? Download the podcast here.

On today's radio program, Glenn Beck was joined by Bill O'Reilly to discuss the top stories of the week.

For O'Reilly, the biggest story this week centered around someone mysteriously missing from mainstream media news reports today: Mark Zuckerberg. Specifically, O'Reilly said it's the 'scandalous' way the Facebook CEO spent nearly $420 million to influence the 2020 election — and did so successfully.
