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.

When Bevan Cooney — the former "junior" business partner to Hunter Biden and Devon Archer — went to jail in 2019, investigative reporter and New York Times bestselling author Peter Schweizer thought he'd never gain access to the damning emails Cooney had promised. That all changed three weeks ago when Schweizer was given complete access to Cooney's gmail account.

Schweizer joined Glenn Beck on the radio program Tuesday to describe just some of the business deals revealed within these emails — like Hunter working with an alleged Russian criminal and with Chinese communists to secure their assets, or to secure one-on-one time with his dad, then-Vice President Joe Biden. And all of this new information is completely separate from the emails allegedly discovered on Hunter Biden's laptop recently reported by the New York Post.

"So, I want to make this clear. This [Cooney's emails] has nothing to do with what's on the laptop … It didn't come from [Rudy] Giuliani. It didn't come from anybody else, right?" Glenn asked Schweizer.

"That's absolutely correct," Schweizer confirmed.

He briefly explained how Cooney, a former Los Angeles nightclub owner, is currently serving a prison sentence for his involvement in a fraudulent business bond scheme with Biden and Archer. From prison, Cooney gave Schweizer written permission to access his Gmail account.

"This is really important," he noted. "We're not looking at printouts. Not looking at PDFs. We're actually in his Gmail accounts themselves, sifting through these emails. And there's a shocking amount of information about deals involving China, involving Russia, involving all sorts of things they were trying to pull off."

The king of "No Spin" and bestselling author of "Killing Crazy Horse," Bill O'Reilly joined Glenn Beck on this week's podcast to talk about the latest developments in Joe Biden's Ukraine and China corruption scandal. Now that some of the details are finally coming out in the open, does the average Democrat care? Maybe, but the Left doesn't seem to.

O'Reilly argued there's more hatred for President Donald Trump now than in 2016, and that some people hate President Trump so much that they'd rather vote for the "senile, corrupt" Joe Biden.

"Hunter got tens of millions of dollars from Ukraine, from Russia, from China because his father was vice president. I have no doubt in my mind," O'Reilly said. "But the hatred for Donald Trump overrides that in the minds of millions of viewers. They're saying, 'You know, we'd rather have the senile corrupt guy than Trump.'"

Asked by Glenn if any other Republican running for president would be met with the same level of vitriol, O'Reilly answered, "The Left is the Left. They don't like America. The want to redo the Constitution. They want to take some of our freedoms, like the Second Amendment and the First Amendment, and change them. And they want to destroy capitalism and replace it with a big centralized government in Washington that controls the economy … but I'm talking about the folks. I have liberal friends and I say to them, 'Do you not understand that when you vote for Biden, you're voting against your own self interest?'"

In a phone call with his constituents, Senator Ben Sasse (R-Neb) unleashed a torrent of criticisms about President Donald Trump, saying he "flirted with white supremacists," "kisses dictators' butts," and "spends like a drunken sailor."

On the radio program Friday, Glenn said he was disappointed in Sen. Sasse for apparently forgetting all of President Trump's accomplishments. Because, in reality, Trump has accomplished a lot more than many presidents before him.

Then, for anyone who may have forgotten President Trump's achievements — or who simply hate the man so much they've ignored them — Glenn listed just some of the many things this president has achieved during his three and a half years in the White House.

President Trump has given us great judges on the lower court, 3 judges far superior than Roberts and other bogus constitutionalists as SCOTUS and one just may turn out to be another Clarence Thomas. He kicked the ass of ISIS and came home.

He got us out of the disastrous Iran deal, killed their head of terror, boxed them in and is currently collapsing their economy while also brokering a Mid East peace deal that everyone said could never happen. He moved our embassy to Jerusalem despite the state department, something no president has done even though they all promised.

Yes, he met with the North Korean Dictator. I hated that, but I also hated the fact that no other president did anything and North Korea kept gaining power. He has gotten Europe to pay their share of NATO, brought the Arabs and the Jews together, while smashing the choke hold of the PLO, and stood up to the Chinese instead of selling them supercomputers (Clinton), accepting lead poison in dog food (Bush), or loving the CCP and taking millions in dirty money (Obama/Biden).

He also has defended religious liberty unlike any other president at least in the last 100 years, and is a true pro-life advocate that unlike most republicans backs it up with action instead of just talk.

President Trump has also opened doors that the GOP was too wussy to even try to open with Hispanics and Blacks. He again didn't pander. He instead cleared the dead wood and opened pathways up so they could get higher education, create jobs, and not get lost in the prison system.

He also has defended religious liberty... and is a true pro-life advocate.

President Trump also took on an economy that had been beaten down, a people who had been told "you didn't build that" and, in fact, Obama and Biden claimed that the economy was "as good as it would ever get," that we would never create jobs in sectors ever again.

President Trump gave us the lowest unemployment rate since 1969 (the year I celebrated my 5th birthday,) the lowest unemployment for Hispanics & Blacks ever, and the first real growth in pay that I can remember.

President Trump then responded to the largest pandemic in 100 years by doing a couple of things I have never seen a president do:

  1. America's biggest capitalist shuts down the entire economy and knowingly puts his re-election at risk in order to save people.
  2. Closes travel with China and Europe, only to be called “racist," "xenophobic" and accused of stirring hatred. Now everyone says they were for it, but he stood alone and took the heat.

When everyone bashed him because they thought he would seize control and become an authoritarian by telling states what to do, or taking control of companies and telling them what to produce, he simply asked the free market to step to the plate, because he trusts the people of this country to do the right thing. By not taking control, he was called a dictator and a Nazi. Meanwhile he has been blamed for the blood bath created by Gov. Cuomo's nursing home policies. They said 2 million would die, best case scenario 200,000 — if we did everything right. Gee, seems that we are now in the time period they told us would be phase two, it seems as though we seem to have hit that "best case scenario" at this point.

While all of this has gone on, President Trump has fought the lies that were started by Hillary Clinton's team to smear him as a Russian operative. It was enabled by the Obama White House and included the DOJ, CIA, Dept of State, FBI, and DNI. Did I leave anyone out? Oh, yeah we are now getting evidence that members of the Pentagon may have been involved as well. Not to mention the so-called "press" and Congress who did things that would embarrass not only "Frank Underwood" but also Kevin Spacey. He has single handedly exposed the press for who they are and have always been. Because of his tweets, personal style and frankly balls of steel, he has exposed those who truly are: "Enemies of the people." I hated that when he first said it, but it is true. Any person or group that knowingly lies to destroy our president, our Constitution and the free market, are not just enemies of the people, they are enemies of the freedom of all mankind.

As someone who didn't support President Trump at first (and that is putting it mildly) I remain honest enough to judge him on his entire record. He is perhaps the only man in America that can and has stood entirely alone, surrounded by enemies, surrounded by those who took an oath to protect and defend the Constitution, who are now actively engaged in destroying it and any elected president who stands in their way.

Personally, I have grown sick and tired of spineless, do nothing, old, corrupt GOP politicians who are either part of the problem or too frightened to stand alone and speak up. The vast majority are all "Sunshine Patriots." History will condemn those who did nothing but complain and whine, while others not only rang the bell, but stood and took the hits, who risked it all and lost money, reputation and perhaps, God forbid, some who gave the ultimate sacrifice to fight the evil that rages so clearly against the light.

100 years from now history will judge all of us. So will our children's children. Most will be forgotten. Those who failed to show up on the battlefield or cower in the trees, will be remembered with shame and disdain. Others like President Trump, I believe will be seen as indispensable.
