Many 912ers haven’t had a chance to meet Senator Rubio – although we’ve probably been at events where he appeared via tv or telephone. Here’s an opportunity to meet him in person as he opens his new regional office.

Regional Director, Southeast Region
Last week on his radio program, Glenn Beck played amazing audio from 1965 where radio commentator Paul Harvey explored how he would destroy America if he were Satan. It is absolutely amazing how right on he was back then and how so many of us are being duped by the devil.
This Monday, at a joint meeting of the County Commission and the 15 cities that have brought the lawsuit over the Inspector General funding, a proposal surfaced to create a new taxing district. This is the wrong approach and will likely end up as a ballot question that could ask people to choose between higher taxes (with a new district) or continuing to fund the Inspector General – which 72% of the voters said they wanted.

“We are not trying to entertain the critics. I’ll take my chances with the public.” –Walt Disney
Walt Disney, one of Glenn Beck’s personal heroes, sought to be one of the world’s leading producers and providers of entertainment and information. Glenn, too, seeks to captivate, entertain, and inform the public with his new media empire: GBTV.
When Glenn Beck announced nearly a year ago that he was leaving his successful Fox News program, moving to Texas, and forging a new frontier with media by creating GBTV, my first thought was, Oh no! Please don’t leave Fox News. My second thought was, Has he gone crazy?
Now, almost a year later, I can see the start of his vision for GBTV and the outline of the new trails he is blazing. His avant-garde, out-of-the-box thinking just might pay off.
What is GBTV? GBTV is Glenn’s live HD Internet Network, kind of like a Glenn Beck channel, but on the Internet. The subscription-based network features his hour long daily program (similar to his popular Fox News show), plus a lineup of original Glenn Beck Programming, news, documentaries, reality and behind-the-scenes shows, and much more. It breaks the mold of the traditional media confines because GBTV is beholden to you, the viewer, not advertisers and cable news bigwigs; GBTV is being built by you.
Glenn has already populated GBTV with several shows, many of which are suitable for the whole family, that you can catch live or on demand.
Glenn Beck Radio Program
GBTV allows you to not only listen, but to watch Glenn, Pat and Stu broadcast the radio program from 9am – 12pm weekdays from their GBTV studio in Dallas. The fully produced five camera video broadcast offers the viewer unsurpassed quality and a real behind-the-scenes feel.
The 4th Hour
The 4th Hour with Stu and Pat comes on right after the Glenn Beck Radio Program at noon. With a lighter mood, they delve into topics that Glenn didn’t get to cover with different perspectives and humor. This bonus hour also includes Moron Trivia during football season.
The Glenn Beck Program
This is like the Fox News show, except Glenn is more candid than he ever was on Fox. Check it out weeknights from 5-6pm or on demand when it’s convenient for you.
This is the reality show for every 912-er! Follow Frank Belcastro and his family as they try to live independently and completely off the grid. Episodes air Wednesdays at 8pm or on demand.
Real News from The Blaze
“The truth has no agenda” is the motto for this news show, which immediately follows The Glenn Beck Program at 6pm weeknights. The Real News from The Blaze is a roundtable discussion by journalists and commentators who focus on news and analysis from the realms of politics, the economy, national security, foreign policy, and other impactful stories that the mainstream media ignores.
This fun, enlightening show for kids offers a look at what grownups are talking about. Hosted by Raj Nair, the show explores History, Science, Video Games, and The Arts like no other show on TV or anywhere else. Tune in weekdays at 4:30pm.
B.S. of A.
Join GBTV’s chief humorist Brian Sack every Thursday from 7:00 – 7:30pm for an objective, witty and humorous take at the news of the day through a balanced lens. Think SNL without the liberal bias. It’s also fun when they poke fun of Glenn.
How do you get GBTV?
You can try it for free for 14 days. Next, you’ll need to decide if you want to sign up for one of two subscription plans. The GBTV option ($4.95/month) gives you access to Glenn’s one hour program on weeknights in HD quality video.
However, my recommendation is to forgo the fancy coffee a couple times a month and spring for something much more valuable with a GBTV Plus subscription ($9.95/month or $99.95 for the year with the year discount). The GBTV Plus subscription gives you access to all the shows mentioned above along with his exclusive documentaries, Beck University and special offers and discounts only offered to GBTV Plus subscribers. It is a wealth of information worth much more than $9.95 per month.
How do you watch GBTV?
There are a number of ways to tune in to GBTV. You can watch on your computer and TV (via Roku and Boxee), plus enjoy total access on your iPhone®, iPad® and iPod® touch through the GBTV app.
Like Walt Disney, Glenn is a pioneer trying to change the media landscape, but unlike Disney, Glenn may not be creating the happiest place on earth—quite honestly it could be the scariest place on earth because the truth is sometimes hard to swallow. However, GBTV is exactly what America and the world needs right now.

When I went to church Glen Beck and Mitt Romney were
there I shook hands with both. Glen spoke about the book the
coming insurrection and another book that started the French
Revolution. He also bore his testimony of the book of Mormon a
and how it is a second testimony of Jesus Christ and serves as
a warning for our times. Does anyone know why both were at
my church other then both are mormon?
We’d publicized a panel on A Six Pillars Forum: Beyond the Local Vote. How do Municipal Elections Affect our Daily Lives?
The intent of the forum was to inform people about the importance of municipal elections – as typically in Palm Beach County, turnout is around 12% every year. A very few voters are determining what happens to you on a daily level. The goal was to both stimulate turnout, encourage attendees to get more involved via boards and to run for office. We also wanted to explore the inhibitors to participation. My personal goal is to see that all incumbents have an opponent. On the filing deadline of 2/14/12 – 44 people got ‘elected’ automatically because no one opposed them. Is that good? Is that why we get the government we deserve?
Many people worked hard to pull the meeting together in a short timeframe.
Our panelists – Steven Abrams – Vice-Chair and County Commissioner District 4, represented the view of one who has served as a city council member, mayor, and now County Commissioner; Michael Bornstein, Town Manager, Lantana, represented the view of those who run the municipalities; and Dennis Grady, President, Chamber of Commerce of the Palm Beaches, represented the business communities. Our moderator was Craig Agranoff, author of “Socially Elected: How To Win Elections Using Social Media” and award-winning CBS News Television Technology Correspondent.
Nat Roberts, board chair of the Economic Council kicked off the meeting with a brief history of the Six Pillars effort. Craig took it from there. Each of the panelists answered several questions by Craig in depth and then we quickly moved to audience questions – with a fairly free form format that worked well. I did not take notes, however copied the gist of the topic take-aways from notes written by Beth Kigel, Mike Jones and Steven Abrams. Subjects discussed included:
1) County and municipal commission/council meetings tend to happen in the middle of the day. Makes it difficult for citizens/residents to attend. Time limits on speakers and lack of genuine dialogue/interaction at meetings dissuades the public.
2) How to utilize HOAs to get information out to the residents?
3) How to encourage folks to get to their own municipalities websites and get informed about local issues?
4) The discussion got side-tracked a little when an audience member asked how to make voting more convenient? The panel subject was municipal elections which don’t have early voting – but most of the changes the audience explored were things that would require changes by the Florida state legislature.
5) Times have changed. In the past (eg 10-20 years ago), multiple ‘beat’ reporters covered each town meeting. Now we’re lucky if anyone is covering a meeting – usually only if a controversial topic is on the agenda. So how do we leverage social media, public access channels, other means to educate the residents and get them involved?
6) There was a brief discussion on salaries for municipal elected officials, and was that an inhibitor to people running? For the most part city officials are part-time efforts but still take a lot of time. County Commissioners are a full or almost full-time job.
7) Term limits were discussed as well. Are people discouraged by the daunting advantage an incumbent has and would term limits help that? As is often the case when the subject comes up, there are pros and cons.
And don’t foget to vote on Tuesday! Check at the Supervisor of Elections website to see what’s on the ballot!
We hope to build on the effort to stimulate citizen participation as the year proceeds. Please get involved with our county and look for future Six Pillars activities. For more information on Six Pillars go to the Florida Chamber Six Pillars Overview. The Economic Council of Palm Beach County orchestrated the county’s effort and the strategic plan for Palm Beach County can be found here.
(Editor: The poster wanted you to read the following article about a controversial bill in the Florida Legislature. Here are links to the text of the bill entitled “Mortgage Foreclosures – the FL House version and the FL Senate version.)
Floridians Are About To Get Raped – Again
You’d think that the “nobody committed any crimes” crowd could muscle up some objection to this sort of bill, but it appears they haven’t and won’t.
Indeed, the very working title of the bill is a fraud — “The Florida Fair Foreclosure Act.”
It is in fact nothing of the sort.
Any time I see a bill that replaces the word “shall” with the word “may” in virtually every instance, and it is almost-impossible to find instances of the opposite, the hair goes up on the back of my neck. The word shall is an important one in statutory construction, as it imposes hard limits on conduct and leaves no wiggle room, where the word “may” leaves ultimate discretion to people who are, in many cases, unelected and unaccountable.”
