"Wouldn't it be better to connect the dots, imagine the unimaginable, and take necessary precautions

  • Jun 15, 2012

This observation from author Glenn Beck on page 81 of his important new book "Cowards: What Politicians, Radicals, and the Media Refuse to Say" sounds perfectly reasonable to me. And yet the "progressive" leaders of both political parties in the administration and in the Congress steadfastly refuse to acknowledge that many of our most pressing problems even exist. The situation is further exacerbated by the mainstream media whose total lack of journalistic ethics continue to aid and abet our government in keeping the American people largely ignorant of the monumental problems this country is facing. For those who have been following Glenn Beck's heroic attempts on radio, TV and in books to inform the American people of what is really happening in this country much of what is contained in "Cowards" really comes as no great surprise. But for the vast majority of Americans the case laid out by Beck and Kevin Balfe in this book should prove to be a real game-changer. It is all here, beautifully laid out, written in easy-to-understand language and fully documented. If you think of yourself as a reasonable person with a fairly open mind then you really should consider reading this book.

Let's not mince words here. Much of what you learn in "Cowards" is bound to frighten you. It should. Take Kevin Freeman, an economic analyst commissioned by the Pentagon to evaluate the fallout from the 2008 economic crisis. What Freeman has to say about it is chilling. Mr. Freeman concluded that terrorist organizations could indeed wreak havoc on our economy in myriad ways. You sure won't hear about this from Rachel Maddow or Wolf Blitzer. Their complete lack of intellectual curiosity is astonishing! Yet, when a Washington Times reporter asked a high-ranking government official about these threats he simply dismissed it by saying "Nobody wants to go there." Meanwhile Kevin Freeman was told in no uncertain terms that there would be retribution if he ever publicly discussed his findings. Now if you listen to our esteemed U.S. Homeland Security Secretary Janet Napolitano you would think that all is just hunky-dory along the Mexican border. Nothing could be further from the truth. Did you know that more than 100 tunnels have been discovered between Mexico and the United States. You will find a compelling full-page photo of one of them on page 105. And were you aware of just how violent the Mexican drug cartels really are? What I learned in this book sent chills up my spine.

Speaking of frightening you will learn in "Cowards" who George Soros really is. His organization Open Society Institute (OSI) supports a cornucopia of far-left organizations and foundations. His goal is the fundamental transformation of American society. Sound familiar? Soros counts among his allies the public employee unions and a whole host of radical organizations. The more you read about this guy the more scary he becomes. You only need to read about his "Secretary of State Project" to know just what I am talking about. Incredibly, Soros has come out of the shadows and is now pursuing his radical agenda right out in the open. This only serves to prove the stranglehold this man has on the media and so many of America's leading institutions.

In subsequent chapters of "Cowards: What Politicians, Radicals and the Media Refuse to Say" goes on to discuss several more of the most pressing this nation is facing including our pathetic educational system, the threat posed by radical Islam and the relentless attack on free speech and religious liberty that we see all around us. "Cowards" is punctuated by impressive photographs and memorable quotations. I found the format of this book to be a bit dizzying at first but once I got used to it I realized that it is extremely effective. It reads and looks like a textbook which I believe is exactly what Glenn Beck had in mind. After you read "Cowards" be sure to pass it on to a relative, friend or neighbor. I would characterize this volume as a "handbook for patriots". The American people really do need to know what is going on out there. And they are certainly not going to learn the truth in the mainstream media. Very highly recommended!

I guess I would qualify as a frustrated writer. My work requires very little writing and so since 1999 I have been writing reviews on non-fiction books and anthology CD's on amazon.com. I never could … more

Publication Date: June 12, 2012
As we approach the most important presidential election in America’s history, something has been lost among all of the debates, attack ads, and super- PACs—something that Americans used to hold in very high regard: THE TRUTH.

Glenn Beck likes to say that “the truth has no agenda”—but there’s another side to that: people who have agendas rarely care about the truth. And, these days, it seems like everyone has an agenda. The media leads with stories that rate over those that matter. Politicians put lobbyists and electability over honesty. Radicals alter history in order to change the future.

In Cowards, Glenn Beck exposes the truth about thirteen important issues that have been hijacked by deceit. Whether out of spite, greed, or fear, these are the things that no one seems to be willing to have an honest conversation about. For example:

* How our two-party POLITICAL SYSTEM often leaves voters with NO GOOD OPTIONS.

* How extremists are slowly integrating ISLAMIC LAW into our SOCIETY.

* How PROGRESSIVE “religious” leaders like JIM WALLIS are politicizing the Bible.

* How the CARTEL VIOLENCE on our border is FAR WORSE than people realize.

* How “LIBERTARIAN” has been INTENTIONALLY turned into a DIRTY WORD.

* How GEORGE SOROS has amassed enough MONEY and POWER to INFLUENCE entire ECONOMIES.

In some cases, the truth is out there, but people simply don’t ...
