What Politicians, Radicals, and the Media Refuse to SayBook - 2012
COURAGE > COWARDS
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 want to hear it. It's much easier, and certainly a lot more convenient, to keep our blinders on. After all, as a quote attributed to President James Garfield made clear, "The truth will set you free, but first it will make you miserable."
Miserable or not, the truth can no longer be something we hope for; it must be something we live. When courage prevails, cowards do not--and this book was written to ensure that's exactly what happens.

#1 New York Times bestselling author and nationally syndicated radio host Glenn Beck provides readers with the truth about the issues the media and politicians are scared to touch.This year, America will face one of the most important elections in history. But in the whirlwind of all the debates, attack ads, and super-PAC money, something that Americans used to hold in high regard has been lost: the truth. Glenn Beck believes that those who control the information--from the media to our politicians--are scared to tell the public the truth because of narrow, selfish interests, such as an impact on their ratings, or lobbying agendas, or re-election campaigns. People and organizations have agendas-- but the truth does not. In Cowards, Beck provides a shockingly honest assessment of issues, ranging from border violence to Shariah law, from George Soros and the threat of economic terrorism to Frances Fox Piven and her strategy for collapsing our welfare system. Beck delivers the unvarnished truth about these little-covered topics. By the end, it will become clear why Beck often likes to quote President Garfield: The truth will set you free, but first it will make you miserable.
