Glenn Beck to tackle Hollywood instead of ‘wasting his life’ on politics

Radio talk show host Glenn Beck is transforming himself once again, this time into a movie producer.

The media entrepreneur is in the midst of converting a 72,000-square-foot movie studio in Irving, Texas, into a film center for Mercury Radio Arts, his parent company, he told The Hollywood Reporter.

Beck, who earns nearly $60 million annually from writing for TheBlaze and hosting his radio show, said he intends to produce three movies. One will be set in ancient history, one in modern history, and one will be faith-based. He also revealed that he bought back from Sony the rights to his best-selling book, “The Christmas Sweater.”

“The meaning of ‘The Christmas Sweater’ is that there are second chances,” he said. “It is based not only on my childhood but a dream that I had as an adult after I sobered up.”

POLL:Have you unfriended Glenn Beck?

The recovering addict became a huge New York City radio and TV sensation before packing it all up and moving to Texas.

“I bought a movie studio for a reason,” Beck said. “I have every intent of finding great artists who will tell great stories that aren’t typical.”

“Everybody thinks they know who I am because of my stint on Fox,” he added. “That was two years of my life. I’m much more into culture than I am into politics, and that’s where I intend to make my stand.”

To prove his point, he told The Reporter that he drew inspiration from movies like “Divergent,” “Lone Survivor,” “True Grit” and “The Magnificent Seven.”

“Hollywood is missing this moment to reconnect with the American people because they don’t speak the language,” he said. “Some of it is out of spite – they might not like people of faith.”

Beck said he wants to produce movies that are not preachy but that are “great for the whole family.”

“We’re beginning to agree that Republicans and Democrats suck – they’ve built this machine to grind people into the ground,” he said.” I hate this stuff. I hate politics. I hate politicians, and I feel I’m wasting my life. Don’t we all know what’s happening? George W. Bush was taking us down a road, and Barack Obama is taking us down that same road. What difference does it make? I don’t want to waste my life anymore.”

He is right in a way...but I am not willing to give up my fight for our Republic.....on the other hand..more choices than the liberal BS put out by follywood that I have not supported for some time would be nice.....

Less and less people are caring Glenn. You've sold out!

Beck has lost his way. Hollywood is not the villain. Who goes to the movies anyway? Kids, right? Yes, Hollywood, including TV, does exert some political dissent, especially against conservatives. But the real enemy are the libs and the RINOs in Congress and the WH. He fought so hard against them, and now gives up to fight Hollywood? So many people relied on him for inspiration to rise up and combat DC corruption. My guess is that he'll lose many followers. A shame.

A tad shocked he would go here.  Waiting for awhile to see what he says.

The slander from all sides is collapsing this nation at a rate that is mind boggling.  The efforts to put things into conjuncture with reality is futile.  The constant rise of killing fields in all nations is growing.  The only shield is the Armour of the Lord.  Follow his writings or perish.  The world is in a state of collapse.  None of us who are grandparents will see a end to the uprisings in motion.

HAPPY THANKSGIVING

Tea Party Wishes You And Your Family
A Happy Thanksgiving 

Thanksgiving Proclamation, 3 October 1789

Whereas it is the duty of all Nations to acknowledge the providence of Almighty God, to obey his will, to be grateful for his benefits, and humbly to implore his protection and favor—and whereas both Houses of Congress have by their joint Committee requested me “to recommend to the People of the United States a day of public thanksgiving and prayer to be observed by acknowledging with grateful hearts the many signal favors of Almighty God especially by affording them an opportunity peaceably to establish a form of government for their safety and happiness.”

Now therefore I do recommend and assign Thursday the 26th day of November next to be devoted by the People of these States to the service of that great and glorious Being, who is the beneficent Author of all the good that was, that is, or that will be—That we may then all unite in rendering unto him our sincere and humble thanks—for his kind care and protection of the People of this Country previous to their becoming a Nation—for the signal and manifold mercies, and the favorable interpositions of his Providence which we experienced in the course and conclusion of the late war—for the great degree of tranquility, union, and plenty, which we have since enjoyed—for the peaceable and rational manner, in which we have been enabled to establish constitutions of government for our safety and happiness, and particularly the national One now lately instituted—for the civil and religious liberty with which we are blessed; and the means we have of acquiring and diffusing useful knowledge; and in general for all the great and various favors which he hath been pleased to confer upon us.

And also that we may then unite in most humbly offering our prayers and supplications to the great Lord and Ruler of Nations and beseech him to pardon our national and other transgressions—to enable us all, whether in public or private stations, to perform our several and relative duties properly and punctually—to render our national government a blessing to all the people, by constantly being a Government of wise, just, and constitutional laws, discreetly and faithfully executed and obeyed—to protect and guide all Sovereigns and Nations (especially such as have shewn kindness unto us) and to bless them with good government, peace, and concord—To promote the knowledge and practice of true religion and virtue, and the increase of science among them and us—and generally to grant unto all Mankind such a degree of temporal prosperity as he alone knows to be best.

Given under my hand at the City of New-York the third day of October in the year of our Lord 1789.

George Washington
President of the United States of America
