If you have never seen Glenn Beck in action, he's done you the favor of creating a segment that captures his je ne sais crazy so perfectly that you need never watch another episode again.
There are tears. An imaginary Lady Liberty. And: mouth to mouth with an American flag.

The feud between World Wrestling Entertainment and Glenn Beck is shaping up to be the hardcore battle royale of the decade. In one corner stands a caricature with a monomaniacal determination to remain in character as he entertains an audience hungry for crude story lines.
In the other corner is a professional wrestler.

Glenn Beck recently announced the creation of a libertarian-themed news network, drawing the ire of Ron Paul fans who correctly believe that libertarianism doesn't need any more crazy-person stigma than it's already got.
But Beck isn't going to stop at a mere re-branding and network launch. He's also announced plans to "go Galt" and create a libertarian community inspired by a bizarro combination of Disney World and Galt's Gulch of Atlas Shrugged fame. Though Beck estimates the project will cost $2 billion, it's an efficient fantasy, since we know Beck can serve as the mayor, town fool and, of course, town crier.
Called Independence, USA, the city will feature a marketplace occupied by small business owners, a media center, farms and workshops aimed at making the development self-sufficient, at least as far as Kool-Aid production is concerned.

The community will also include residential developments, which just sound like delightful places to live.

Considering every dollar spent subscribing to Glenn Beck's The Blaze TV is a dollar that can't be used to purchase canned food, ammunition or the Crovel Tactical, it's a minor miracle that the professional crybaby and conspiracy-monger has been able to make a dime off his network.
Nevertheless, the sharia socialism of the Obama years has been kind enough to Beck's projects that he has the resources to expand into a new venture, titled "American Dream Labs." The expansion will include a new global headquarters in New York City meant to "send a very clear message to everyone in New York…it will piss everyone off," as well as the creation of an international news program staffed by investigative journalists whom Beck has promised to "grow [on] our own."
Even more controversial than the NYC-based reporter-growing super-lab is The Blaze's pivot toward becoming "global libertarian news network." Needless to say, libertarianism and Beck's brand of bombastic Christian-tinged American exceptionalism are two tastes that rarely taste great together. Denizens of the Daily Paul boards were skeptical:
