FREE AUDIO: Mitt Romney talks about Power Down


(MP3 Format)

    A tightly-coordinated series of attacks shatters America's energy-producing capacity – a major hydroelectric dam is blown up and the largest off-shore oil field in the hemisphere is destroyed – bringing the country's largest energy company to its knees.  But when the terrorists struck the Capitana platform off the coast of Colombia – slaughtering most of the crew and destroying the oil field – there was one factor they didn't take into account: Dewey Andreas.  Crew chief of the platform, Dewey Andreas, a former Army Ranger and Delta, survives the attack, overcomes the team of terrorists and rescues as many of his men as possible.  But with that battle, the war has just begun. 

    Determined to find and bring to account the men who planned the attack, Dewey must call on his long-dormant skills and overcome waves of increasingly deadly assaults as he follows the trail of terrorists and operatives sent to stop him.

    Meanwhile, the mysterious Alexander Fortuna – an agent embedded into the highest levels of American society and business – prepares to launch the second stage of his long-planned attacks. With Dewey Andreas coming ever closer, the two men are locked in a deadly race against time: Fortuna to finally unleash the broader assault against America that has been his life's mission, and Dewey to find and stop Fortuna, to protect the country and the people he loves.

     Power Down is a gripping, compelling debut thriller, featuring an electrifying new hero, from a powerful new writer.

“Coes pumps new heat, blood, and flat-out action into his frighteningly plausible thriller debut….Readers will eagerly await Coes's next effort and hope for Dewey Andreas's return.”

–  Publishers Weekly

“I loved Power Down! It's a fresh, exciting thriller and the action scenes are big, vivid and authentic, at times even breathtaking. An impressive debut for Ben Coes.  I was blown away.”

–  David Morrell, New York Times bestselling author of Creepers and creator of Rambo

Power Down is terrific! With a gripping story, compelling characters, a relentless pace and nerve-wracking suspense, Power Down is one of the must-read thrillers of the year.  Don't miss this debut of novelist Ben Coes and the introduction of Dewey Andreas – you'll devour this one and wait anxiously for their return.”

–  Vince Flynn, New York Times bestselling author of Pursuit of Honor

“A ripping thriller from an exciting new novelist.  Power Down kept me glued, turning the pages.  Lots of action, a terrific hero, and a slimy villain–thrillers don't get any better.”

–  Stephen Coonts, New York Times bestselling author of The Disciple

“Power Down marks the emergence of a major new talent in the political thriller genre—no small feat in a field already packed with big names like Vince Flynn, Brad Thor, and David Baldacci. In terms of sheer entertainment value, author Ben Coes and his hero, the unusually but memorably named Dewey Andreas, are easily and immediately competitive with the very best the thriller field has to offer.”

- Jeremy Taylor, The Fiction Addict

 


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.

On Thursday's radio program, Grace Smith and her father, Andy, joined Glenn Beck on the phone and provided a first-hand account of Grace's refusal to wear a mask at school.

Smith, 16, began a maskless protest after her school district in Laramie, Wyoming, decided to implement a mask mandate. As a result, Grace received three suspensions, was issued two $500-citations, and was eventually arrested.

"How long were you in jail?" Glenn asked.

Grace said was taken to jail but was never booked nor was she was placed in a jail cell.

Glenn commended Grace's father, Andy, for raising such a "great citizen" and asked if it was Grace's idea to protest. Andy said it was Grace's idea, explaining that they took the position of arguing on the grounds of civil rights rather than the efficacy of wearing a mask.

Grace has since withdrawn from public school and started a home school program. She also told Glenn that she will continue to fight the school district, legally.
