Why are conservative writers burning up the bestseller list?

Glenn’s latest book, Miracles and Massacres: True and Untold Stories of the Making of America, came out yesterday and is already climbing up the bestseller list. On radio this morning, Glenn talked about a remarkable trend that has several conservative authors in the top 10 of Amazon’s bestseller list.

“I want to show you out of the top 10 books that are for sale right now, how many of them are conservative history books or written by a conservative,” Glenn said.

As of the publishing of this article, if you look at the general bestseller list across all genres on Amazon, Charles Krauthammer, Rush Limbaugh, Brian Kilmeade, Bill O’Reilly, and Glenn all fall in the top 10.

  1. Diary of a Whimpy Kid: Hard Luck, Book 8; Jeff Kinney
  2. Things That Matter: Three Decades of Passions, Pastimes, and Politics; Charles Krauthammer
  3. Rush Revere and the Brave Pilgrims: Time-Travel Adventures with Exceptional Americans; Rush Limbaugh
  4. George Washington’s Secret Six: The Spy Ring That Saved the American Revolution; Brian Kilmeade
  5. Killing Jesus; Bill O’Reilly
  6. The Book Thief; Markus Zusak
  7. Miracles and Massacres: True and Untold Stories of the Making of America; Glenn Beck
  8. The Pioneer Woman Cooks: A Year of Holydays: 140 Step-by-Step Recipes for Simple, Scrumptious Celebrations; Ree Drummond
  9. The Bully Pulpit: Theodore Roosevelt, William Howard Taft, and the Golden Age of Journalism, Doris Kearns Goodwi
  10. Saying Strong: 365 Days a Year; Demi Lavato

“That's five of the top ten,” Glenn said. “I just want to point this out because I think this is really good news. This shows what America is consuming… Think of this. Nobody in the mainstream media is doing American history… Nobody is producing this stuff on television. You're not seeing the movies being made. Look at the appetite for real American history. Look at the appetite for conservative views.”

So what does this mean?

“What is this telling me? This tells me that the market is wide open; that conservatives now are dominating the book world. And that's got to be driving people crazy,” Glenn said. “Here's the really good news. Technology is now allowing people from any walk of life – left, right, doesn't matter – to be able to publish their own books. You'll be able to get it in front of people, and you don't need the big publishing houses anymore. So their reign is over. And even in their reign, the liberal bias is over.”

Sen. Ted Cruz: NOBODY should be afraid of Trump's Supreme Court justice pick

Sen. Ted Cruz (R-Texas) joined Glenn Beck on the radio program Wednesday to weigh in on President Donald Trump's potential Supreme Court nominees and talk about his timely new book, "One Vote Away: How a Single Supreme Court Seat Can Change History."

Sen. Cruz argued that, while Congressional Democrats are outraged over President Trump's chance at a third court appointment, no one on either side should be afraid of a Supreme Court justice being appointed if it's done according to the founding documents. That's why it's crucial that the GOP fills the vacant seat with a true constitutionalist.

Sen. Mike Lee (R-Utah) joined Glenn Beck on the radio program Wednesday to talk about why he believes President Donald Trump will nominate Judge Amy Coney Barrett to fill the Supreme Court vacancy created by Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg's death.

Lee, a member of the Senate Judiciary Committee that will consider and vote on the nominee, also weighed in on another Supreme Court contender: Judge Barbara Lagoa. Lee said he would not be comfortable confirming Lagoa without learning more about her history as it pertains to upholding the U.S. Constitution.

This week on the Glenn Beck Podcast, Glenn spoke with Vox co-founder Matthew Yglesias about his new book, "One Billion Americans: The Case for Thinking Bigger."

Matthew and Glenn agree that, while conservatives and liberals may disagree on a lot, we're not as far apart as some make it seem. If we truly want America to continue doing great things, we must spend less time fighting amongst ourselves.

'A convenient boogeyman for misinformation artists': Why is the New York Times defending George Soros?

On the "Glenn Beck Radio Program" Tuesday, Glenn discussed the details of a recent New York Times article that claims left-wing billionaire financier George Soros "has become a convenient boogeyman for misinformation artists who have falsely claimed that he funds spontaneous Black Lives Matter protests as well as antifa, the decentralized and largely online, far-left activist network that opposes President Trump."

The Times article followed last week's bizarre Fox News segment in which former House Speaker Newt Gingrich appeared to be censored for criticizing Soros (read more here). The article also labeled Glenn a "conspiracy theorist" for his tweet supporting Gingrich.
