Thirteen days that shook the world and shaped America

#TweetingGW

What if a reporter was embedded with George Washington during the height of the Revolutionary War? Josiah Teasdale was hired by James Rivington to do just that. For the next two weeks @NYGazetteer will take you into the trenches, across the Delaware, and into the Battle of Trenton, in real time.

The Backstory:

James Rivington was born in London in 1724 to a family of successful publishers. 37 years later, upon his arrival in New York City, he became a publisher himself via a newspaper called Rivington’s Gazetteer.

According to historical accounts, The Gazetteer started out as a balanced source of news (it’s slogan, printed at the top of the front page, was “Open and Uninfluenced”), but things quickly changed once hostilities got underway.

According to King’s Handbook of New York City 1892, “Rivington's Gazetteer stigmatized the patriots as rebels, traitors, banditti, fermenters of sedition, sons of licentiousness and the like.”

That kind of talk did not go over well with the patriots.

Rivington was burned in effigy by the Sons of the Liberty and, in 1775, angry colonists forced him to flee the city and take refuge aboard a British ship. A few months later, another group attacked his press, destroying it and using its parts to make bullets. But that did not stop Rivington from finding ways to print his paper.

And that is where our story begins.

It’s now December, 1776 and the war is in full effect. Tired of what he considers to be patriot-propaganda, James Rivington has an idea that is well ahead of its time: He decides to embed a reporter with George Washington’s unit under the auspices of reporting the “truth” about what is happening.

That reporter, the intrepid Josiah Teasdale, arrives in General Washington’s camp on December 23, 1776 and spends the next thirteen days live-tweeting everything he sees and hears. While he didn’t know it then, those thirteen days—encompassing the crossing of the Delaware River, two battles of Trenton and the battle of Princeton—turn out to be some of the most decisive of the entire war.

They are the thirteen days that shook the world. And now you can relive them, live.

What has Teasdale said so far today?

The far left is tearing apart the social fabric of our country in the name of "progress." From its emphasis on government dependency, to the $15 minimum wage, to the embrace of Marxist Critical Race Theory in our schools, the Left is destroying our culture and way of life.

On Glenn TV this week, Glenn Beck spoke with Christopher Rufo, director of the Center on Wealth and Poverty, about the latest insane example of the Marxist lies destroying the minds of our kids: A New York school sent parents a "white identities" chart advocating for "white traitors" and "white abolitionists."

There is an all-out assault on the social fabric of our country. The kids are NOT all right. In the name of "progress," we're destroying their minds with Marxist lies. In the name of "safety," we're destroying their souls by keeping them locked down.

On his Glenn TV special this week, Glenn Beck takes on the national suicide that the Left is committing by destroying our culture and way of life and how it's also leading to actual suicide of our kids. Experts on the front lines expose how the lies of critical race theory are crippling our children's future and provide tools for parents to fight back.

Finally, Glenn hears from a parent who tragically lost his teen son, who took his own life due to COVID isolation. He has a powerful message for parents, teachers, and politicians who he says are failing our kids.

With as much gas and oil as Texas has — and not to mention its own power grid — why in the world is Texas experiencing such bad power outages?

Center for Industrial Progress president and founder Alex Epstein joined "The Glenn Beck Radio Program" to lay out what he's found.

Alex said he believes the "fundamental" problem is "the insistence on using unreliable wind and solar energy instead of reliable energy from coal, nuclear, and natural gas." And soon, it may not be just Texas, as President Joe Biden pushes for 100% dependency on green energy nationwide. THAT is the "real lesson of Texas," he warned.

Disney actress Gina Carano was just the latest to be canceled for being vocally conservative — this time for making a Holocaust comparison. But on this week's episode of "The Glenn Beck Podcast," renowned Jewish historian Edwin Black explains how Gina's comparison wasn't exactly out of line: The second phase of the Holocaust, exclusion, "is like cancel culture."

Edwin Black is the son of Holocaust survivors and an investigative journalist with awards and best-selling books translated into 20 languages in nearly 200 countries. His book "IBM and the Holocaust" examines high tech's role in killing Jews during the Holocaust and what it can teach us about the dangers of Big Tech today.

Edwin has spent enough time in the media to see all of its warts (there are a lot). And he's speaking out about it and its role in ignoring history at our nation's peril. He told Glenn he believes our culture and our history are being erased. Our ideals are being censored and our values are being mocked.
