Is this the next Common Core?

Think Common Core is bad – wait until you hear about Imagining America, a national consortium of 90 campuses that Glenn believes could be America’s next progressive propaganda machine.

Imagining America was created through the White House Millennium Council, which was initiated under Bill Clinton in 1998 through an executive order. Their membership includes over 90 universities, including Columbia, NYU, Brown, University of Chicago, University of Washington, and UC Santa Barbara—all of whom receive grants from the Tides Foundation.

Using publicly available video, Glenn showed what some of the people involved want to do with the program. They discussed changing the face of government by getting radicals to run for office and involved with changing policy. They discussed redistribution of wealth, inequality, and oppression.

Many of their members have ties to George Soros. Pam Korza, for example, an advisory board member, is actually the co-director of the Soros funded Animating Democracy. Other members have written progressive texts and have ties to a wide range of connections including government organizations, universities, corporations, and more.

Imagining America openly admits to collaborating with “a whole domain of robust organizations with which higher education-based scholars and artists [can] collaborate” –meaning the Tides supported universities, and also what they call “non-academic cultural” organizations such as the Animating Democracy Initiative founded in 1996, The Community Arts Network founded in 1999, and the International Coalition of Sites of Conscience founded in 1999 - all of whom receive funds from George Soros’ Open Society Foundation.

The organization is also closely tied to the new United States Department of Arts and Culture, a group that Glenn claims is the new Progressive propaganda arm. It’s not a real government organization, but it sure seems to want to act like one. The group seeks to use the arts to promote “cultural equity” and a “democratic media”. Glenn said that they also want to re-create and rewrite our history using “observation, improvisation, innovation, resourcefulness, and creativity.”

There were several alarming pieces of information that Glenn and his team were able to find out about Imagining America, but perhaps the most concerning things were there efforts to rewrite and shape history. At their 2013 Conference, the group hosted a panel called “Claiming the Past, Creating the Future” that sought to “step into history and actively participate in documenting the past from the vantage point of the present to articulate a socially just future”.

While this group has become as pervasive as Common Core, Glenn said people need to be aware of what is happening early before they have a chance to grow their influence and rewrite history through indoctrination.

The American Journey Experience is the new home of the car Orson Welles gave to Rita Hayworth. Orson Welles gave this car to his future wife Rita Hayworth for her 24th birthday.

George Orson Welles was an American actor, director, producer, and screenwriter who is remembered for his innovative and influential work in film, radio and theatre. He is considered to be among the greatest and most influential filmmakers of all time and his work has had a great impact on American culture.

On Friday, Mercury One hosted the 2022 ProFamily Legislators Conference at The American Journey Experience. Glenn Beck shared this wisdom with legislators from all across our nation. We must be on God’s side.

Winston Marshall assumed that he would be playing banjo with Mumford & Sons well into his 60s, but one tweet — simply recommending Andy Ngo's book — was all it took for the woke mob to attack. At first, Winston apologized, saying he "was certainly open to not understanding the full picture." But after doing some research, not to mention a whole lot of soul-searching, his conscience "really started to bother" him.

On the latest episode of "The Glenn Beck Podcast," Winston opened up about the entire scandal, what he discovered in the wake of his cancellation, and why he's decided to put truth over career.

"I looked deeper and deeper into the topic, and I realized I hadn't been wrong [when] I'd called the author brave," Winston said of Ngo. "Not only was he brave, he'd been attacked by Antifa mobs in Oregon, and he was then attacked again ... he's unquestionably brave. And so my conscience really started to bother me ... I felt like I was in some way excusing the behavior of Antifa by apologizing for criticizing it. Which then made me feel, well, then I'm as bad as the problem because I'm sort of agreeing that it doesn't exist," he added.

"Another point, by the way, that I found it very frustrating, was that that left-wing media in this country and in my country don't even talk about [Antifa]. We can all see this footage. We see it online," Winston continued. "But they don't talk about it, and that's part of my, I think, interest initially in tweeting about Andy's book. Because I think people need to see what's going on, and it's a blind spot there. ... CNN and MSNBC, they don't cover it. Biden in his presidential election said it was just 'an idea' that didn't exist. I mean, did he not see the courthouse in Oregon being burnt down?"
