This year you can certainly say that In the Garden of Beasts by Erik Larson is one of the top books on Glenn Beck's Book List. He has talked multiple times about the books impact on his life and is a sure sign of things to come if we don't stand up against political tyranny and total control through the implosion of the World's financial system. The Hollywood Reporter has written that Universal Studios, Tom Hanks and Playtone (Hanks new production company with Gary Goetzman) have optioned the movie rights to Erik Larson’s nonfiction best-seller. Tom Hanks is a history buff in the movie business and has helped bring about many historical movies such as Saving Private Ryan, The Band of Brothers mini-series and was even involved in help to build the World War II Memorial in Washington DC.

Here is the description of In the Garden of Beasts via Amazon.com:
The time is 1933, the place, Berlin, when William E. Dodd becomes America’s first ambassador to Hitler’s Germany in a year that proved to be a turning point in history.
A mild-mannered professor from Chicago, Dodd brings along his wife, son, and flamboyant daughter, Martha. At first Martha is entranced by the parties and pomp, and the handsome young men of the Third Reich with their infectious enthusiasm for restoring Germany to a position of world prominence. Enamored of the “New Germany,” she has one affair after another, including with the surprisingly honorable first chief of the Gestapo, Rudolf Diels. But as evidence of Jewish persecution mounts, confirmed by chilling first-person testimony, her father telegraphs his concerns to a largely indifferent State Department back home. Dodd watches with alarm as Jews are attacked, the press is censored, and drafts of frightening new laws begin to circulate. As that first year unfolds and the shadows deepen, the Dodds experience days full of excitement, intrigue, romance--and ultimately, horror, when a climactic spasm of violence and murder reveals Hitler’s true character and ruthless ambition.
Suffused with the tense atmosphere of the period, and with unforgettable portraits of the bizarre Göring and the expectedly charming--yet wholly sinister--Goebbels, In the Garden of Beasts lends a stunning, eyewitness perspective on events as they unfold in real time, revealing an era of surprising nuance and complexity. The result is a dazzling, addictively readable work that speaks volumes about why the world did not recognize the grave threat posed by Hitler until Berlin, and Europe, were awash in blood and terror.

TODAY! Glenn Beck's latest book Being George Washington: The Indispensable Man, As You've Never Seen Him is out!!! This is sure to be a new legacy book about George Washington perhaps a companion to all of the other great George Washington books Glenn has talked about in the past! Watch the video below about this great new book OUT TODAY!!!
CLICK HERE to pick up your copy of Being George Washington: The Indispensable Man, As You've Never Seen Him
IF YOU THINK YOU KNOW GEORGE WASHINGTON, THINK AGAIN.
This is the amazing true story of a real-life superhero who wore no cape and possessed no special powers—yet changed the world forever. It’s a story about a man whose life reads as if it were torn from the pages of an action novel: Bullet holes through his clothing. Horses shot out from under him. Unimaginable hardship. Disease. Heroism. Spies and double-agents. And, of course, the unmistakable hand of Divine Providence that guided it all.
Being George Washington is a whole new way to look at history. You won’t simply read about the awful winter spent at Valley Forge—you’ll live it right alongside Washington. You’ll be on the boat with him crossing the Delaware, in the trenches with him at Yorktown, and standing next to him at the Constitutional Convention as a new republic is finally born.
Through these stories you’ll not only learn our real history (and how it applies to today), you’ll also see how the media and others have distorted our view of it. It’s ironic that the best-known fact about George Washington—that he chopped down a cherry tree—is a complete lie. It’s even more ironic when you consider that a lie was thought necessary to prove he could not tell one.
For all of his heroism and triumphs, Washington’s single greatest accomplishment was the man he created in the process: courageous and principled, fair and just, respectful to all. But he was also something else: flawed.
It’s those flaws that should give us hope for today. After all, if Washington had been perfect, then there would be no way to build another one. That’s why this book is not just about being George Washington in 1776, it’s about the struggle to be him every single day of our lives. Understanding the way he turned himself from an uneducated farmer into the Indispensable (yet imperfect) Man, is the only way to build a new generation of George Washingtons that can take on the extraordinary challenges that America is once again facing.

Glenn Beck is talking to author Peter Schweizer right now! Schweizer is the author of the new book Throw Them All Out a book we all have wanted to read!!! Peter Schweizer exposes the insider trading corruption in Washington DC and why DC's economy is booming today!
CLICK HERE to buy Throw Them All Out
One of the biggest scandals in American politics is waiting to explode: the full story of the inside game in Washington shows how the permanent political class enriches itself at the expense of the rest of us. Insider trading is illegal on Wall Street, yet it is routine among members of Congress. Normal individuals cannot get in on IPOs at the asking price, but politicians do so routinely. The Obama administration has been able to funnel hundreds of millions of dollars to its supporters, ensuring yet more campaign donations. An entire class of investors now makes all of its profits based on influence and access in Washington. Peter Schweizer has doggedly researched through mountains of financial records, tracking complicated deals and stock trades back to the timing of briefings, votes on bills, and every other point of leverage for politicians in Washington. The result is a manifesto for revolution: the Permanent Political Class must go.

Today Glenn Beck talked to New Zealander, Trevor Loudon, author and founder of the websites www.trevorloudon.com ("New Zeal") and KeyWiki.org two sites dedicated to providing factual information to help preserve America. From Trevor's site: “I’m a libertarian activist and political researcher from Christchurch New Zealand. I believe in freedom with responsibility, not freedom from responsibility.

I believe in working with all those who are moving in broadly the same direction. The views expressed in this Blog are strictly my own.” Trevor is also the founder and editor of KeyWiki.org, a rapidly growing website with the goal of unlocking the covert side of U.S. and Global politics.

Glenn Beck Talks with Author David Pietrusza on GBTV about his New Book "1948: Harry Truman’s Improbable Victory, The Year That Transformed America"
Glenn Beck Talks with Author David Pietrusza on GBTV about his New Book “1948: Harry Truman’s Improbable Victory, The Year That Transformed America”
On GBTV with Glenn Beck, he talks with author David Pietrusza about his new book, 1948: Harry Truman’s Improbable Victory, The Year That Transformed America. Judge David Pietrusza is an award-winning and best-selling author and a notable historian. His latest book takes readers behind the scenes in the 1948 election that turned the underdog candidate into a U.S. President. Watch the interview with Glenn and David below as well as see other books written by David Pietrusza.

The Progressive Party
David Pietrusza refers to 1948 as the “second progressive era.” If you recall, 1948 was the year of the communist trials, a war to win over the Democratic Party, a post-war America that is becoming more conservative, but at the same time, there are representatives in the Democratic Party that do not want it to be that way. In addition, 1948 brings Nixon on the scene, the Cold War, the reinstitution of the draft, and the Marshall Plan.
By this time in history there is a new party emerging – the Progressive Party – which is a party that emerges to work against Truman for not getting along with Stalin. The famous saying, “We love him for the enemies he makes,” ends up gaining Truman both the black vote and the Catholic vote in the north and attacks the “do-nothing Congress,” winning Truman the vote again, even though Truman only had a 32 percent approval rating.
Obama is the New Truman
According to Glenn Beck, Obama is this era’s Harry Truman. In the last election, a fight for the soul of the Democratic Party reared again with the nomination and election of Barack Obama. The Progressive Party activist that year was Frank Marshall Davis in Chicago, who was also a mentor to Obama in Hawaii. Frank Marshall Davis’ role in 1948 would have been the backing of civil rights in the south.
The Author’s Point
What David Pietrusza wants you to take away from 1948: Harry Truman’s Improbable Victory, The Year That Transformed America is that it is not over until it is over and do not try to fight people that are determined to hold on to power.
Glenn Beck’s GBTV interview with David Pietrusza leaves an American nation wondering if the Republicans have learned the lessons that the author is pointing out in the book. Beck chimes in by saying that he does not believe they have learned their lessons at all.

To learn more about this incredible story that will change your life and anyone around you that reads "The Hiding Place" go to www.TenBoom.org and watch the movie on GBTV. "In 1837, Willem ten Boom opened a clock shop. Dedicated Christians, the family home above the shop was always an "open house" for anyone in need. After an inspiring Dutch Reformed worship service in 1844, Willem started a weekly prayer service to pray for the Jewish people and the peace of Jerusalem (Psalm 122:6). His son Casper continued the tradition of prayer with his own family. These prayer meetings continued for 100 years—until February 28, 1944, when Nazi soldiers arrested Casper and his entire family for harboring Jews. During World War II, the ten Booms lived out their Christian faith by making their home a refuge—a hiding place—for Jews and members of the Dutch underground who were being hunted by the Nazis."
