Glenn Beck kicked off 2011 with a somber speech about how he is going to keep doing everything he thinks he's been doing.

America is great because America is good” is not just some trite slogan. It is a deep and well thought out philosophy that has over 200 years of evidence of its truth. Yet we are being told on every level from our classrooms to our newsrooms that America is not good and never was great.

We cannot as a nation survive much longer. We must take a page from our own history at the Alamo and “draw a line in the sand.” We must decide who we are, what we are capable of and look to the heavens to chart our course. Do we return to the ideas of the past or do we continue West to the yet unrealized and unfulfilled promises laid out in our Founding ideals? We must choose as individuals and then put those choices into action. We must demonstrate to our children, neighbors and to ourselves that it is not policies or politicians but people that make this nation what it is for better or for worse.

There is literally nothing new here, except the announcement that he's hiring 40 more people and the fact that Beck doesn't mention his ill-fated and unpopular war against George Soros anywhere in his diatribe about the new year.

Something that is new on the conservative side of things: Red State is openly calling for a coup in the Republican Party.
