Speaking of Glenn Beck

. . . which I was, if you count saying (two posts below) that he doesn’t matter anymore. Anyway, speaking of Glenn . . .

// Goldline, a company that used endorsements from Glenn Beck and other conservative icons to sell hundreds of millions of dollars to consumers, has been charged with theft and fraud in a 19-count criminal complaint filed Tuesday by local officials in California.

. . . marks the latest in a series of allegations leveled against the gold dealer, which pioneered the practice of weaving its sales pitches into broadcasts by popular conservative political personalities — including two former presidential candidates — to sell hundreds of millions of dollars worth of gold every year.

The complaint alleges that Goldline “runs a bait and switch operation in which customers, seeking to invest in gold bullion, are switched to highly overpriced coins by using false and misleading claims,” according to a statement released by the consumer affairs division of the Santa Monica City Attorney’s office.

I grabbed this little something from Goldline’s website; I’m sure Beck’s lawyers are screeching their outrage even now, insisting it be taken down – even though I thought I once heard Glenn say that Jesus wanted us to buy from Goldline.

  1. I don’t know anything about Beck’s sponsers, but I do know Glenn Beck is a low life putz!

    • Doin’ great Steve. I don’t know about buying gold – it always goes down eventually. Not a good long term investment. But selling gold is another matter. I sold some old jewelry of my mother’s that I would never wear and got a nice bit of change – but I did it four months ago. Now gold is even higher. If you do want to buy, price shop. You’d be surprised.

      Glad we agree on Beck.

  2. Thanks for the information about Goldline though. I was actually going to buy some (not from them) a few weeks ago at the Dallas/Ft. Worth Gold and Silver Exchange. Changed my mind at the last minute when I saw just how complicated it really is.
    Still considering it though. We’ll see.

  6. I occasionally listen to Beck when I’m bored at work, and I agree with you that he’s becoming irrelevant. I can tell because he’s getting louder and screechier. The more people forget about him, the more desperate for attention he gets.

    Anyway, I’m going to listen tomorrow to see how he’s going to weasel out of this one–and I know he will. I can guarantee you that he’ll be saying something like “I never told anyone to buy gold, I always had my doubts about Goldline yadda yadda.”
