Glenn talks to Brian Kilmeade about the six people who saved the American Revolution that you have probably never heard of

Fox and Friend’s host Brian Kilmeade joined Glenn on radio this morning to talk about his new book, George Washington’s Secret Six: The Spy Ring That Saved the American Revolution. Glenn explained that Brian approached him with this fascinating and relatively unknown story several years ago while he was still working at Fox.

“I want to tell you the story about how one person can make a difference. One person can correct history. One person can truly uncover thing that’s been lost for a long, long time,” Glenn said. “About five years ago, when Brian Kilmeade asked if we could have lunch… He starts telling me this story about this spy ring under George Washington, and he starts weaving a story I never heard before,” Glenn said. “I said, ‘Brian, that’s fantastic.’ He said, ‘I heard this about 15 years ago. I couldn’t believe this story, and I couldn’t believe I didn’t know it. I happen to live in this area, so I started doing some detective work. The guys are buried right around me. It all happened right here.’ We would have lost the war had it not been for George Washington’s spy ring. I said, ‘You should write a book.’ And he has. It is tremendous.”

The book revolves around a group called the Culper Spy Ring that aided Washington in the aftermath of an ill-fought battle in New York City in August 1776. Washington realized he wouldn’t be able to beat the British with military might, so he recruited a sophisticated and secretive intelligence network to infiltrate New York. Brian explained that as a Long Islander, he found himself particularly fascinated by the story of the “secret six” who have received little credit for the work they did to ensure the colonies won the Revolutionary War.

“I believe like you believe, fundamentally, Americans are good and have qualities,” Brian said. “I believe this story backs up my belief because one’s a farmer, one’s a tavern owner, one is a dry goods owner, a woman who is a socialite, and they sit there behind enemy lines every day for four years, knowing at any moment, they will suffer the fate of Nathan Hale if they are uncovered.”

“But they believe in America more than anything else and somehow they pull this thing off… And we didn’t know who they were until 1930, and are still uncovering what they did because that’s how they wanted it,” he continued. “Washington knew it… And we built this book around Washington’s own letters from the spies to Washington. So we’re not looking for any opinion. We are building the story about what happened.”

So why wouldn’t these heroes want their identities known and stories told?

“Back then, even if you were spying on the right side, it wasn’t considered like today. There was a duplicity about it.  It didn’t fit well with many people,” Brian explained. “Number two: They were a people who did not want credit, much like people we see serve in the military today. They’re like give the other guy credit. I don’t want the praise. I don’t want your money… They believed in the cause. That’s what gives me chills… They believed in the cause. They believed in the country. They believed in our potential.”

“And that’s why I thought my little contribution was to give these people a little bit of the limelight that they didn’t get in their lives. I have visited their gravesites and one is in the back of a barn, and there are hoses all over the place, and it’s overgrown. It’s the original tombstone from 1823 when they died,” he continued. “And I think it’s important. Those are the types of people that make up America. We could focus on the Founding Fathers, but there are extraordinary people we never met.”

“Brian, I wish you the best of luck. It’s called George Washington’s Secret Six: The Spy Ring That Saved the American Revolution. Some of these things are still taught by the CIA,” Glenn concluded. “This is history that you didn’t know about. History that was lost. History that shows you that you have a role, no matter how small you think you are, you have a huge role.”

    3:56 PM 11/16/2013 personal hypothetical notes to self

    work as CEO for one dollar, become CEO of Top Fortune 12,000 companies and STILL get disability check

    20 Billion dollars RENT for “spirit opportunity” Fiasco on mars

    200 million dollar NASA contract NO STRINGS ATTACHED, no butt monkeys with big noses, NOTHING. LEAVE ME THE HELL ALONE.

    Became or will become president?

    Then there is the Phillipines and Japan and a connection with Manilla and iloilio.

    And there it is, oh lets not forget I apparently am HEAD COACH of Roll Tide.

    Can we possibly pile on anymore? With God there is NO limit to what we can do.

    Oh (the list gets longer, trust me) since I married my wife TWICE (we never divorced) and she is okay with a “secratary” and well….. I understand what Solomon went through. This is Hypothetical notes to self, HYPOTHETICAL for the moment. We are doing fine as we are, Dear God, I just want to help people, and help turn this country around.

    Oh there is more, China wants to give us our money back huh? I’ll save that one for later.

    I once said to somebody I want my reward in heaven to be a MANSION, with GREAT NEIGHBORS, with birds flying around (canaries in my house already) and “kittens” (full grown cats). I’M THERE ALREADY. My house now is just the right size, I want no bigger, I love my neighbors,and Geez, God is AWESOME.

    someone give this “memo” to my attorney, you still in the dark NOW?

    Amen, GenWasp. Every President should have read this collection. I don’t see how they can serve in the Executive branch without without knowing how to properly serve the people of this American Republic. Surely that’s why we are in such terrible shape now.

What a trip. Witnesses as well. IT WAS IN OPEN CHAT, rut-oh 33rd (start melting your gold), I have yet to begin. NWO, HOUSE DE ROTHSCHILD, all of it to true Isreal, ALL OF IT.
    EDOMITES YOU KNOW YOU HAVE BEEN HAD. YOU KNOW IT !!!!!

    Fill up your vehicle that you got for free and get payed for filling it up kind of stuff, preach the gospel world wide kind of stuff, THAT KIND OF STUFF. They give up ALL their wealth. That’s not the “deal”. That is the REALITY. CORBIN, CORBIN, CORBIN The Vatican gives up all it’s gold too, the filthy Jesuit is the False prophet.

    I’m never cashing in, my wife, secretaries and assorted ministries, philanthropy groups pass the wealth where it needs passing. I’m cursing you filthy EDOMITES to your hell. Let God judge all this come judgement day. I need a break for a while.’ Night all. Give your Life to Jesus Christ and live humbly thereafter, stay in HIS WORD. Find YOUR ministry now. Let’s wrap this thing up.
