Glenn Beck Leads His Internet Network From His Own Oval Office

Glenn Beck Oval OfficeMegalomania? You can watch the address here. Nice touch that it was originally used in Oliver Stone’s JFK. Reports Bud Kennedy in the Fort Worth Star-Telegram:

Glenn Beck has been in Texas only a few months, and he’s already talking big. Now, he wants to address America from his own Oval Office. Lest anyone fear that something has suddenly gone drastically wrong in our country, Beck’s Oval Office is a movie set in Irving.

As part of moving into the largest broadcast studio in Texas, Beck will start delivering speeches from the White House set built 20 years ago for the Oliver Stone movie JFK and stored since then at the Studios at Las Colinas.

Saying he will “deliver the speeches the president should have delivered,” Beck promised to “activate the sleeping giant” of Christian conservatives in America with speeches from his new set on the Studios’ Stage A. Mainly, of course, Beck’s goal is to motivate subscribers to pay $9.95 a month for his show, broadcast daily to about 300,000 viewers via computer, iPad, iPhone or other household appliance. Beck bought the Oval Office from Studios landlord Muller Entertainment, restored it and added a George W. Bush-era office rug, he said this week.

    The Clown-Prince of the GOP.

      Huh?

      Beck has been one of the strongest critics of the GOP since the Bush II’s second term.

      If you’re going to bash someone, at least get the facts straight. 

      • Monkey See Monkey Do

        Glenn Beck helps the GOP more than you obviously know.

          He is pro constitution and against reps & dems who are against it   more then you obviously know.     Comment on what you know, not what others say.

    This is why Mormons should not be taught to read or write.

    • Freight Train

       yeah, let’s just lock ‘em up in re-education camps and make them wear yellow M’s on their clothes. That’ll solve it.

      • Redacted

        Its an interesting idea, but I’m not sure everyone is as blood thirsty as you are. I’ll have to pass on it.

      RECTUS! DOMINUS! SPOOKYTUS!

  • Freight Train

    this is no different to me than when SNL did that skit with Al Gore talking as if he’d won the 2000 election and everything was perfect and the world was at peace. It’s simply wish-fulfillment and fantasy for those who agree with your politics. 

  • Calypso_1

    Next he’ll convene a cabinet and have his own ‘secret service’ – shadow gov’t in situ.

    • Liam_McGonagle

      Yes, the “Fruits of Mammon”, wearing fezes and dark glasses.

      Of course, I imagine they’re all white, 50 year-old physical train wrecks with nicotine stained fingers and NASCAR patches on their jackets, but when ye’re in Showbiz you’ve gotta stand out somehow.

      • Calypso_1

        Anarcho-monarchist direct action:
        sit on throne facing auspicious direction
        doing absolutely nothing.

  • Liquidself

    Vapid wish-fulfillment fantasy inspired by a weak, vicious mind.  No doubt his gullible followers are meant to be the victims of the implied auto-suggestion involved in his psychotic narcissism.

    • Alex

       He’s merely creating his own reality. You’d think Disinfo would would approve…

      • Calypso_1

        There is quite a difference between creating your own reality and inserting yourself into the simulacrum of another.

        • Alex

           I can only fault him for aiming too low. If he got his set from Lucasfilm  he could have been Galactic Emperor.

    Glen isn’t stupid. He’s getting rich from his stupid audience! 

    • Nuggett

      Just because you know how to make money off of idiots doesn’t make you not stupid.  There are levels to this shit.  

  • Simiantongue

    As good a time as any to chime in on the religion debate. Beck is the real consequence of belief in practice.

    So he likes to pretend he’s President, in an office built for “JFK?” I say we complete the fantasy …

    If you comment on this but have not watched it,,,   Your a drone who goes with flow without thinking.
    Beck has been marginalized by people whom don’t want you to hear him.  They call him names so you won’t watch him.   Works really good as most don’t want to think for them self’s, when they can just take other peoples  word for it. And want to fit in with others by saying what others want to hear.
