Glenn Beck says family has received multiple threats since moving to Texas

Glenn BeckConservative pundit Glenn Beck said Thursday that his family has faced multiple threats since moving to Texas but also noted that he’s happy that he moved to the state.
Beck’s family moved from New York City to Westlake last year.
On Thursday, while interviewingRepublican presidential candidate Rick Santorum for his online show in his studio in Las Colinas, Beck touched on how being in the public eye has impacted his life.
"One of the reasons why we moved out of New York is my family was being brutalized," Beck said. "But even here, we've had...5 now attempts in 4 weeks on the family and it's just part of it."
Beck did not elaborate on the nature of the "attempts." A spokesman for Beck declined to comment. Keller Police, which handles law enforcement for Westlake, said it did not have any record of any threats reported by Beck.
Also Thursday, on his radio show, Beck spoke at length about how happy he is to have left New York for Texas.
"I feel so good to be in Texas right now," Beck said. "You know what I think it is it"s not depressing here. It's like there's hope...Every place else you're watching the destruction of your country. Here it feels good. So those in Texas don't be deceived."
Late last year, Beck announced plans to hold an inspirational event called Restoring Love on July 28 at Cowboys Stadium in Arlington. He has encouraged supporters around the country to travel to North Texas to attend.

You don't pay. You can't play.
I'm going to sound harsh here.
But time for a little reality here.
Everyone has to pay taxes.
I don't care how much, or how little.
But something. Anything.
Here's why.
This new report out of The Heritage Foundation...
That reveals 49 and a half percent of us aren't paying any income taxes at all.
Many pay Social Security and Medicare taxes....and depending on where they live, property taxes too.
That's fine. Join the club.
Here is what is not.
Not paying any "income" taxes.
I take nothing away from those genuinely poor and unable to pay...
But you can't tell me 49 and a half percent of us are unable to come up with so much as a penny to pay?
Nearly 50 percent?
I'll spot you five percent. Maybe go as high as ten percent.
But half?
More like "half-assed."
I'm telling you, we can't change this game unless "everyone" has skin in the game.
"Some" skin. "any" skin.
And if you don't, don't speak.
And certainly, don't demand.
Just because you're entitled to our government doesn't mean you're entitled to bash the folks who are paying for that government.
They're paying your freight.
It'd be like being treated out to dinner, ordering the most expensive thing on the menu, a pricey bottle of wine, to boot...then bitching to the host about how much of a tip he left.
Stop arguing for the rich paying their fair share...and saying nothing about the now half of all Americans who pay no share, at all.
Stop demanding benefits from a system you give nothing.
And then have the nerve to bitch at the very folks paying darn near everything.
Forget about "fair share." how about a "fair debate"?
Where we put the facts on the table and keep the class warfare stuff off the table.
Where we talk about everyone pulling the boat, and not a president simply pulling our leg.
Where we focus on the government and what's become of it.
And not whether a select few should pay more for it.
How about everybody pay at least something for it?
Because when you have skin in the game, guess what?
