Glenn Beck: Nick of Time



Author James Patterson (Maximum Ride series) says:

"NICK OF TIME is a blast - the best of Robert Louis Stevenson, Horatio Hornblower and Harry Potter. The kid in me loved it, and so did the adult."

Author Steve Berry says:

"A brilliant adventure, hidden within a rolling saga, tucked inside an intriguing mystery.  That's NICK OF TIME.  Ted Bell proves that he's the master of swashbuckling for both young and old." says:

“Wow! Some books sweep you away. Ted Bell's NICK OF TIME amazed me, dazzled me, and swept my imagination off to sea… The last line of the story gave me hope for many more sequels. Please, Mr. Bell, may I have some more?... Middle school students are going to be so hooked by this book… I've been craving an adventure story with a good mystery and this arrived in the nick of time to rescue me.”

School Library Journal says:

Nick is the pluckiest, most likable boy-hero since Robert Lewis Stevenson's David Balfour (Kidnapped ). With great battle scenes; lots of nautical jargon; and themes of courage, integrity, and honor, this book will appeal to restless boys who can never find books written just for them. Three huzzahs and a great big 21-gun salute to Bell for his first novel for kids. Hopefully, it won't be his last.”

Children’s Bookseller Judy Hobbs says:

“I just got back from vacation and NICK OF TIME  was on top of my pile.  I loved it!  It was truly a combination of all the great adventure books that I've read.  I know that it will be a great sell to boys, but there will be an awful lot of girls (like me!) who will not be able to put it down. Can't wait for a sequel.”

Grant, age 12 says:

“I had a hard time putting the book down, even when I had homework.  I read at breakfast, and tried to read at dinner, but my mom made me stop… The main character, Nick, came in the "nick of time," and he traveled through time - pretty cool!  Awesome book, can't wait for the sequel!”

GLENN: 888 727 BECK, 888 727 BECK. I don't know if you know this, but my company is called Mercury, and one of the things that we do is we publish books. It's a joint venture with Simon and Schuster, and I'm working on several different things that don't involve necessarily any titles from me. One of them is the freedom library that I have talked about for so long that everybody needs to have a freedom library, that you have to have these books that are quintessential to the American experience. Not just, you know, the founding fathers' words and, you know, biography of Benjamin Franklin and the, what do you call them, the letters.

PAT: The Federalist Papers?

GLENN: Federalist Papers. Not just those things but also like Huck Finn, good decent books. You know, I wrote in a journal, I don't know, about a month ago we have got to teach our children how to be decent to each other. We have to teach our children the things that have been lost. We have to teach our children the value of things, the value of you know, and the state can't do it. The value of just being decent and good and honorable and the values that have been so lost. And I actually thought of a book that I read and I remember that Ted Bell, he's a friend of mine, I wrote him and I said it is a book out of time. And I don't know how many young men I have given this book to so they can read. I cannot wait until Raphe and Cheyenne are old enough to read this book with me. It's called Nick of Time. And Ted is on with me. Ted, are you there?

BELL: Hi, Glenn, how are you?

GLENN: I want everybody to know first of all, full disclosure, I have nothing to gain with Ted Bell and this book. Ted, do I make a dime on this book?

BELL: Not a penny.

GLENN: Not a penny. This is describe the book.

BELL: I tell you, you pretty much did a great job up front on the kind of books that we need. The only thing I would add to that is this notion of heroism and self reliance and independence. And I think if we're going to preserve this country, we're going to need heroes and lots of them, especially now more than ever. And that's one of the central themes in this book is the notion that you can be a hero in your own life. And that's the key element, in addition to love of country, patriotism and taking care of your little sister and taking care of your little brother and all those things.

GLENN: Just being you know, I haven't read you know, I wrote this in a notepad also the other day. Our heroes are gone.

BELL: Yes.

GLENN: Have you noticed that every single hero has either been destroyed or every single hero our kids now has a dark side.

BELL: Yes.

GLENN: Enough with the dark side. They are going to see the dark side

BELL: Soon enough.

GLENN: Soon enough. Let's fill them with light while we can.

BELL: Exactly. I mean, I'm sure you'll remember us getting lost in Treasure Island and Huck Finn and all those books and it just created a world that you wanted to live in and where you knew how to operate. But I knew that if I was going to write a book like this for modern kids, you know, I wanted a book that all kids would love and so the three things that I know kids love are pirates and battling evil Nazis and time travel. And so I wrapped all these notions inside that kind of an adventure.

GLENN: Right.

BELL: Just so it's fun for them to read. Not just as you said, the Federalist Papers.

GLENN: The setting is England in 1939 on the eve of war. Nick and his sister Kate beginning gathering vital information. But the Nazis become the least of Nick's problem after he discovers a time machine hidden in a cove. Unfortunately an evil pirate captain Billy Blood who travels through time capturing little children and holding them for ransom will stop at nothing to possess the priceless machine. With the help of Lord Hawke who is children have been taken by Blood, Nick must fight the ruthless pirate on land and sea in two different centuries in a desperate attempt to save his home and his family from utterly being destroyed. It is a fantastic book and I can't recommend Nick of Time. When does it come out in paperback?

BELL: Today. Today is the pub date.

GLENN: It is in bookstores everywhere. I told you when this book came out, this is one that when my son is old enough and my daughter is old enough what is the recommended reading age?

BELL: Well, it's 9 to 1 but kids much older than that

GLENN: I've given it to a guys that are 15, 16 and they loved it.

BELL: And they loved it. The truth is it's an all family book. It's a book that you can read to your kids, or grownups like it, too. You and I like it.

GLENN: I loved it. There is nothing in it this is like, and I think I told you this at the time, Ted, this is like reading an old book. I mean, it feels, it is classic. And there is nothing in it that you go, oh, jeez, why would you put that in there. And it's just, it's tremendous.

BELL: Well, I just want to make one point.

GLENN: Yeah.

BELL: And that is, I mean, I was tremendously excited in hard cover but now in paperback it's at a price kids can afford to just go out and buy themselves.

GLENN: What is it?

BELL: They don't have to wait for somebody to give it to somebody, you know?

GLENN: $7.99, that's an outrage.

BELL: I don't set these prices.

GLENN: No, I know. It's a great book. Nick of Time by Ted Bell. You'll find it in bookstores everywhere. Ted, God bless you, my friend.

BELL: God bless you, buddy.

GLENN: Thanks.

Glenn Beck: Here's how YOU can fix the Great Reset's housing crisis

How's the housing market looking these days? Because under Build Back Better (aka the Great Reset), investors are grabbing up homes at a record pace.

On "The Glenn Beck Radio Program," Glenn discussed a recent Redfin News report, which shows that almost one in five homes sold in the U.S. during the third quarter of 2021 was purchased by an investment firm, and many are paying tens of thousands of dollars over the asking price.

"Think of that, one in every five homes that are sold are going to a big investment firm," Glenn said. "Investors bought more than 90,000 homes, totaling more than $63 billion, representing 18% of all homes sold in the quarter. The numbers broke all records."

"The same factors have pushed more Americans to rent, which also creates opportunities for investors, because investors typically turn the homes they purchase into rentals," he continued. "And now they can charge higher rents. Rent for single-family homes surged by more than 10% in the 12 months, through September. The fastest annual rent inflation in 16 years."

"And nearly 77% purchased were bought in an all-cash transaction," Glenn added. "That's not your average person. These investment firms, like BlackRock, are going in and buying entire neighborhoods. They are the people that come in, and say, 'I'll give you $70,000 over the asking price.' ... Now, why would investment firms think they will just be able to make money paying $70,000 over the asking price? What is it that they know, that you don't know? Could they know, as the Great Reset states, that by 2030, you will own nothing and you'll like it?"

Watch the video clip below to hear Glenn offer his thoughts on how you can solve the Great Reset's housing crisis:

On "Glenn TV" Wednesday, Glenn Beck exposes the radical plan to flip the United States from capitalism to socialism and into a lawless nation. It's an old strategy that mirrors a communist Cold War playbook. The goal now, as it was then, is this: How do they get a revolution without all that civil war stuff? It’s a five-step plan, and we're deep into several of the main steps RIGHT NOW.

Our justice system has been infiltrated by woke leftists, and something called "the progressive prosecutor movement" is methodically transforming Main Street USA into Main Street Gotham City. We can see it all over the country in places like San Francisco, with the Waukesha massacre as a terrifying glimpse into more of what's coming. And the media? They're currently running interference in one of the largest misinformation operations in history.

It’s happening at the city, state, AND federal levels. And President Trump might be one of the biggest victims of them all, a fact that even Trump critic Joe Rogan has realized on the Russia collusion hoax: “No one is being held accountable!” That ends now, as Glenn calls on Americans to push back on the lies that keep us divided in a cold civil war.

A "one-world government" is being formed right now and it’s called the Great Reset, Glenn Beck said on the radio program Monday. And now, rebuild plans for the fire-damaged Notre Dame Cathedral hint at the formation of a global church, too.

In this clip, Glenn detailed plans for the iconic, 850-year-old church’s "woke" renovations that sound more like a 'politically correct Disneyland' complete with a "discovery trail," "emotional spaces," and 14 themed chapels.

"Notre Dame is now being built back better as a 'woke theme park' dedicated to environmentalism and social justice," Glenn explained.

"There will be several different chapels within, [for example] a chapel for social justice, and then chapel for environmental justice," he continued. "Which leads me to this point. The 'one-world government' is being formed, right now. One-world government. It is being formed and it's called The Great Reset."

Glenn went on to predict that one of the first steps in the direction of a one-world government will be a push for a global religion.

"I think we're seeing the first church now being dedicated to the new global religion — and it is social justice, environmental justice, and all this gobbledygook. We all know, it's not just wrong, it is dangerous. That's the first church, the cathedral of Notre Dame, in France, is the first global church. Mark my words. Christian, Jews, Muslims ... this global church will bring darkness unlike you've ever seen."

The Omicron COVID-19 variant: Should we ACTUALLY panic?

As the new Omicron variant of the coronavirus approaches, it seems like those in power want everyone to be terrified, Glenn Beck argued on the radio program Monday.

The chair of the World Medical Association's Council, Frank Ulrich Montgomery, is already comparing the variant to Ebola and New York Gov. Kathy Hochul (D) has declared a state of emergency, despite the doctor who announced its discovery describing the new variant's symptoms as "unusual, but mild." So, should we really be worried or not?

In this clip, Glenn and producer Stu Burguiere reviewed what we know about the Omicron variant so far and gave a few reasons why we should wait for more information before succumbing to panic.

Note: The content of this clip does not provide medical advice. Please seek the advice of local health officials for any COVID-related questions & concerns.
