Glenn Beck and Texas Independence

by Russell D. Longcore

I wrote an open letter to Glenn Beck back a year ago.

I wrote another article about Glenn Beck’s show cancellation on Fox News.

Now we learn that Mister Beck has escaped the liberal gravity field of Death Star New York and landed his craft in Dallas, Texas!!! He still continues to broadcast his nationally-syndicated radio show Monday through Friday on a station near you. And he has formed GBTV… Glenn Beck TV…to continue his quest for truth. GBTV begins September 12th.

Glenn has been excellent at researching and showing America all of the problems and threats to liberty. In my opinion, there is no one better.

I’m going to stick my neck out here and make some observations and predictions.

The Texas culture is a formidable influence in the lives of those who live in Texas. Democrat or Republican, Libertarian or socialist…Texans like being Texans. They like their history and heritage. They like the success and occasional ostentation of Texans. Texans truly believe that they do EVERYTHING better. Hard to argue. If the Texas economy was a nation, it would be the third strongest economy on earth.

A couple years ago, Beck had Texas Nationalist Movement President Daniel Miller on his Fox News show, where he belittled Miller and the concept of secession. Recently, Glenn stated openly on his radio show that while he does not presently support Texas Independence, he does not oppose it either. That in itself is a big substantive swing of opinion.

I suspect that the Texas culture will seep into Glenn Beck’s psyche over time…and not that much time, either. And national events will occur that will cause Glenn to look at how Texans react and respond. Now that Beck is 1,500 miles from New York, and what he says on his shows is not heavily influenced or censored, the monolithic culture of the Main Stream Media will be absent from his daily existence. Now the Texas culture has the same chance to influence Beck for the good like the Main Stream Media influenced him for evil. I believe that the transformation of Glenn Beck to secessionist is inevitable now that he lives, not just 1,500 miles from New York, but lives in Texas.

At the point that Glenn Beck considers himself to be a Texan, not just a guy who happens to live in Dallas, Texas independence and the concept of secession may gain a convert and cheerleader. Glenn may see it as the only logical choice for preserving liberty in North America. He will be right.


I predict that within one year, Glenn Beck will speak in favor of the concept of secession generally, and Texas Independence specifically. He will agree that Nullification is for Sissies, and reject Tenth Amendment remedies that will not work.

I predict that, when Beck begins to promote secession, his audience will grow exponentially, becoming larger than he as ever experienced in his career.

I believe that with Beck’s support and media influence, Texas Independence will be on the lips of most Texans, and his promotion of Texas Independence will help galvanize Texans to secede from the Union.

Of course, I could be wrong. It’s happened before.

Secession is the Hope for Mankind. Who will be first?

    Bold predictions…

    Suppose another 9/11 type attack takes place within the next year, anywhere on the US mainland. What sort of impact do you see that having on these predictions?

    With the likes of Ron Paul gaining traction in the political scene, and the growing opposition to the wars overseas, I think a false flag terror attack is extremely probable between now and the 2012 federal elections. If I was deeply vested in the US empire and its military-industrial complex, as some powerful folks are, that’s exactly what I would do to rally the sheeple back behind the imperial banner again.

  2. Hey You says:

    Your comments of Texas seceding may be correct. However, if I were to guess, the first state to go (before an onslaught) will be Utah. The currency law in Utah is just too big to ignore.

  3. Richard says:

    I disagree with the notion that Glenn Beck would ever be infected with secessionitis. He is too much of a flag waving ‘traditional’ unionist*. Despite his legendary documentation, he neglects several key issues in his rants; the militarism of America, the negative impact of Republican policies, the complete lack of political conscience in our churches, and the effect of the oligarchy on the subversion of America. Like the leopard, Mr. Beck will not change his spots.

    Regarding Texas, I believe that although the folks there are individualists their political leaders lack a significant amount of intestinal fortitude to commit to the cause of sovereign nationhood. Whenever a rally is organized the politicans fail to arrive. Are there yellow stains on the seats in the state legislature?

    Jared echos the fears of many, myself included, that another 911 is in the planning. It’s likelihood is in direct proportion to the number of citizens who still believe that bin Laden, a red herring, had anything to do with the attack a decade ago.

    However, if such a thing were to transpire it would not occur until after the 2012 elections. Notice that the current financial “crisis” has been neatly postponed until the 2013 session of congress. That body would not have to address financial affairs until the spring or summer of that year. In addition, it would be absolutely necessary to have an inside man installed in the White House.

    Obama Et al, now restrained on a tight leash, still has the potential to upset the delicate plans of such an upgrade in tension and war. Obama will be defeated in the next election. I’d bet money on it. (if I had any extra to wager.)

    Watch the upcoming election. Ignore the rhetoric and study the background of the candidates. A good call on the Republican front runner would be based on back room alliances rather than promises or ability in public speaking.

    * By traditional unionist, I refer to the stale political rhetoric which is based upon the family, flag, mom and apple pie. Apple pie isn’t a staple any more, too many of it’s ingredients are bad for you. The American flag has been hijacked by the oligarchs. The nuclear family has become dysfunctional and dear old mom is a lean mean iron packin’ machine.

  4. Jared says:

    If Ron Paul manages to pull off the GOP nomination (doubtful), I don’t see how the imperialists could afford to wait on moving forward with the false flag terror attack. Ron Paul could (and I believe would) immediately put an end to the wars that are currently being waged solely under executive order.

  5. Anonymous by necessity says:

    If Barack Obama sees the election slipping away from him (as Richard predicts and very well might be the case if a Republican candidate “catches fire”), expect the false flag emergency, complete with martial law, to go up within six months of the election. Can’t you come up with some scenarios under which this might be foisted upon us? It need not be a “terror” attack either. It could just as likely be of economic origins. Or “domestic unrest”.

    This man is not one to accept electoral defeat and just go quietly into the night while he still holds the reins of power. What do you think he meant when he said we’re not even halfway there yet? Do you believe he expects to accomplish his full agenda, whatever that might be, in the next 16 months?

      Dear Anonymous- I thought the exact same thoughts at the end of Bill Clinton’s first term. I was sure that he’d create some emergency and declare martial law. Same thoughts at the end of George W. Bush’s term. Neither of them pulled the trigger. I don’t think this guy will either. But we’ll see, won’t we? Russ

      • Jared says:

        He probably won’t, but the top dawgs behind the military-industrial complex (MIC) may force the issue if there’s any chance at all that Ron Paul could win the election, as I have said. Paul is the only candidate that poses any threat to the MIC if elected.

        Only time will tell.

    • rjp34652 says:

      It didn’t happen for Clinton or Bush and it won’t happen with Obama.


      The democrats and republicans are not the ones in charge.

      We do not live in a republic, but in a fascist state run by the oligarchs. The last shreds of the republic went up in flames (or down as the case may be) with the destruction of the WTC ten years ago.

      “For the great majority of mankind are satisfied with appearances, as though they were realities, and are often even more influenced by the things that seem than by those that are.”
      – Niccolo Machiavelli

      “There is nothing worse in this world than an enslaved man who naively believes himself free, except, perhaps, trying to explain to that same man his predicament. You can lay truth after truth before his feet. You can qualify your every position with cold hard irrefutable data. You can plead and scream and raise veritable hell, but before he will ever listen, he must first become aware of his own dire circumstances. As long as he views himself as safe and secure, as long as he imagines his chains to be wings, he will see no reason to question the validity of the world around him, and he will certainly never invest himself into changing his own deluded destiny.”

    Sorry, Russell- all your predictions will be wrong. Beck is just another hysterical, paranoid, nut job that proudly licks the boots of the US and Israeli rogue states. Let me know when he claims to wipe his ass with the US war flag, then I’ll take your predictions seriously.

    • dumpdc says:

      Roger- People can change. Ten years ago I was still pretty much a Republican, made a quick stop at Libertarianism, and now look where I am! I trust the Texas culture to do its job. Cheers, Russ

    I’m a very proud member of the Texas Nationalist Movement,& grateful to your website for publicising it.
