Glen Beck is at it again…..
Glen Beck is going to build Amusement/Community/College/Historical City called Independence USA. It will bring together people in a Gaults Gulch, Ayn Rand type atmosphere to learn, live and grow closer together.
“What are the American Dream Labs building towards? Glenn gave a look at the big picture that everything is building towards: Independence, USA!
While Independence is very much a dream at this point, the proposed city-theme park hybrid would bring several of Glenn’s seemingly disconnected projects into one place. Media, live events, small business stores, educational projects, charity, entertainment, news, information, and technology R&D – all of these things would have a home in Independence. With the rest of the country and the world going away from the values of freedom, responsibility and truth, Independence would be a place built on the very foundation of those principles. A retreat from the world where entrepreneurs, artists, and creators could come to put their ideas to work. A place for families to bring their children to be inspired.
The ambitious project, projected to cost over two billion dollars, has been heavily influenced by Walt Disney. As Glenn has been explaining throughout the week, Disneyland was originally intended to be a place where people would find happiness, inspiration, courage and hope. Over time, Walt Disney’s original vision has been lost. While hundreds of thousands still flock to the town, it’s become commercialized and the big dreams and the heart have been compromised.
Glenn believes that he can bring the heart and the spirit of Walt’s early Disneyland ideas into reality. Independence, USA wouldn’t be about rides and merchandise, but would be about community and freedom. The Marketplace would be a place where craftsmen and artisan could open and run real small businesses and stores. The owners and tradesmen could hold apprenticeships and teach young people the skills and entrepreneurial spirit that has been lost in today’s entitlement state. Read More
Lisa Jackson (AKA Richard Windsor) leaves EPA under shady circumstances.
Lisa Jackson may need more time with her family but her resignation couldn’t of come any sooner as far as the Coal Industry was concerned.
“It’s easy to find news articles about how the EPA chief Lisa Jackson is stepping down from her position. The mainstream media gives no shortage of objective information concerning her four-year career with the EPA. Just a quick Google News search, and you’ll see several articles about how she fought those dirty Republicans, turned the muck of industry into shimmering clean air, and gave life to many a forest critter… but the reason she’s actually stepping down seems to be shrouded in mystery – at least until you find yourself in the last two paragraphs of the story (the paragraphs nobody actually gets to reading).

Frack Nation the movie a huge success
Frack Nation which aired on Cable Station AXS Tuesday Jan 22 2013 was a breath of fresh air that the Shale Gas Industry needed. After a few years of the putting up with the half truths and anti-fracking rhetoric of Josh Fox’s Gasland the movie and the more recent disgraceful Matt Damon movie Homeland, Frack Nation digs deep into the truth behind the most successful petroleum industry of the last century.
“There are two sides to every story. Just as critics responded to Al Gore’s “An Inconvenient Truth” with the 2008 documentary “Not Evil Just Wrong,” the flip side to Josh Fox’s “Gasland” a 2010 film portraying the negative environmental and health effects of hydraulic fracturing is already in the works…..Wearing a shirt with the slogan “Fracking Brillant,” McElhinney shared with her audience what she considered the lies of “sustainability” and “anti-fossil fuel atmosphere” in the country. she also explained of how she hopes “FrackNation” will educate citizens about 1) where their energy comes from (she cites those who drive electric cars not realizing that the electricity powering the car often comes from burning coal); and 2) the opportunity available for the country to use its own, “local, indigenous and organic” resource.”Read More
