Michelle Malkin joins Glenn to announce an exciting new venture

On radio this morning, conservative columnist and author Michelle Malkin joined Glenn to share a very exciting announcement.

“I'm thrilled to announce today that Mercury Ink has entered a venture with Michelle Malkin, and we are publishing her next book,” Glenn said. “You want to talk about it a little bit?”

“This is my fifth book, and I think it's going to be probably my most treasured book. It's very different from the others that I've done. And, of course, each of these books is like a baby to me,” Michelle explained. “I'm a real control freak and so I write every single word of my books, and I live and breathe them and that's what I've been doing the last several months. You know, a lot of my fans have noticed that I haven't done a lot of TV lately, and one of the reasons why is because this opportunity has allowed me to just really indulge in this passion.”

“A lot of people know me from TV and assume that my life is filled with indignation 24/7. And I certainly have plenty of that but, you know, my personal life has been marked by a great reverence for the American Dream because that's my own story. I've always been sort of a failed tinkerer myself, but I've loved reading stories that don't get told,” she continued. “We can't move forward until we look back. And when Obama used that phrase ‘You didn't build that,’ it really stirred something among tinkerers and entrepreneurs and ‘tinkerpreneurs’. And that really, in part, is the inspiration for the book, although I have to say it's not a political book. It is a historical book. It's a storytelling book.”

Much like Glenn, Michelle has a deep love of history. And she has devoted much of her time to researching and uncovering stories that have failed to be told.

“I have been trying to convince you to join us here at TheBlaze, and I was lucky enough to sit back with you… at Restoring Love, I think, about a year and a half ago and talk about your passion on inventors and ‘tinkerers,’ as you call them,” Glenn said. “And you and I both have a love of history. And we sat backstage there talking about history and the stories that you wanted to tell and the stories that I wanted to tell.”

“Yeah, I think you're kind of forcing me out of the closet here as a, you know, out-and-out full-blown nerd about tinkerers,” Michelle joked. “That was a very, very special meeting for me and it has really sort of fueled my passion.”

Just as Glenn’s Miracles and Massacres, which Michelle quipped she should probably “get a commission” for before she is giving a copy to everyone she knows, offers an entertaining and apolitical look at history. Michelle hopes her book, Who Built That: The Tinkerpreneurs Who Built Everything From Bottle Caps to Bridges, will do the same.

“One of the things that I found, Glenn, in my review of a lot of those contemporary books that have been written, that have been used as history books on this general topic of American inventors, is they leave out a couple of things,” Michelle said. “And I just have to say thank you and God bless you, Glenn, for everything you do. It's wonderful to call you a friend and a partner.”

“Michelle, thank you so much and God bless you and Merry Christmas to you and your family,” Glenn concluded. “Michelle Malkin, truly a patriot and, a remarkable woman. And she's been working on this for a while, and we've been going over it, and you are going to love her next book – probably out next summer or next fall. Look for it then. We'll tell you all about it when we get closer.”

Eric Weinstein, managing director of investment firm Thiel Capital and host of "The Portal" podcast, is not a conservative, but he says conservative and center-right-affiliated media are the only ones who will still allow oppositional voices.

On "The Glenn Beck Podcast" this week, Eric told Glenn that the center-left media, which "controls the official version of events for the country," once welcomed him, but that all changed about eight years ago when they started avoiding any kind of criticism by branding those who disagree with them as "alt-right, far-right, neo-Nazi, etc.," even if they are coming from the left side of the aisle. But their efforts to discredit critical opinions don't stop there. According to Eric, there is a strategy being employed to destroy our national culture and make sure Americans with opposing views do not come together.

"We're trifling with the disillusionment of our national culture. And our national culture is what animates the country. If we lose the culture, the documents will not save us," Eric said. "I have a very strongly strategic perspective, which is that you save things up for an emergency. Well, we're there now."

In the clip below, Eric explains why, after many requests over the last few years, he finally agreed to this podcast.

Glenn Beck: Why MLK's pledge of NONVIOLENCE is the key to saving America

Listen to the Rev. Dr. Martin Luther King Jr.'s pledge of nonviolence and really let it sink in: "Remember always that the nonviolent movement seeks justice and reconciliation — not victory."

On the radio program, Glenn Beck shared King's "ten commandments" of nonviolence and the meaning behind the powerful words you may never have noticed before.

"People will say nonviolent resistance is a method of cowards. It is not. It takes more courage to stand there when people are threatening you," Glenn said. "You're not necessarily the one who is going to win. You may lose. But you are standing up with courage for the ideas that you espouse. And the minute you engage in the kind of activity that the other side is engaging in, you discredit the movement. You discredit everything we believe in."

Take MLK's words to heart, America. We must stand with courage, nonviolently, with love for all, and strive for peace and rule of law, not "winning."

Conservatives are between a rock and a hard place with Section 230 and Big Tech censorship. We don't want more government regulation, but have we moved beyond the ability of Section 230 reforms to rein in Big Tech's rising power?

Rachel Bovard, Conservative Partnership Institute's senior director of policy, joined the Glenn Beck radio program to give her thoughts and propose a possibly bipartisan alternative: enforcing our existing antitrust laws.

Dan Bongino, host of The Dan Bongino Show, is an investor in Parler — the social media platform that actually believes in free speech. Parler was attacked by Big Tech — namely Amazon, Apple, and Google — earlier this week, but Bongino says the company isn't giving up without a fight. In fact, he says, he's willing to go bankrupt over this one.

Dan joined Glenn Beck on the radio program to detail what he calls a "smear" campaign behind the scenes, and how he believes we can move forward from Big Tech's control.

"You have no idea how bad this was behind the scenes," Dan told Glenn. "I know you're probably thinking ... well, how much worse can the attack on Parler have gotten than three trillion-dollar companies — Amazon, Apple, and Google — all seemingly coordinated to remove your business from the face of the Earth? Well, behind the scenes, it's even worse. I mean, there are smear campaigns, pressure campaigns ... lawyers, bankers, everyone, to get this company ... wiped from the face of the earth. It's incredible."

Dan emphasized that he would not give up without a fight, because what's he's really fighting for is the right to free speech for all Americans, regardless of their political opinions, without fear of being banned, blacklisted, or losing jobs and businesses.

"I will go bankrupt. I will go absolutely destitute before I let this go," he said. "I have had some very scary moments in my life and they put horse blinders on me. I know what matters now. It's not money. It's not houses. It's none of that crap. It's this: the ability to exist in a free country, where you can express your ideas freely."
