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.”

During his campaign, President Joe Biden survived scandal after scandal involving his son Hunter — the Ukraine/Burisma scandal, the laptop scandal, the one involving a stripper from Arkansas and a long-lost child. And yet, after it all appeared to have been swept under the rug, Hunter has now released a memoir — "Beautiful Things."

Filling in for Glenn Beck on the radio program this week, Pat Gray and Stu Burguiere discussed Hunter's "horrible" response when asked on "CBS This Morning" if the laptop seized by the FBI in 2019 belonged to him and reviewed a few segments from his new book, which they agreed raises the question: Is Hunter trying to sabotage his father's career?

Countless corporations — from Delta Air Lines, Coca-Cola, and Porsche to UPS and LinkedIn — are calling out the Georgia voting laws, calling them "restrictive," "racist," and "discriminative." Meanwhile, words like "stakeholder" and "equitable" are starting to show up in their arguments.

On the radio program, Glenn Beck gave the "decoder ring" for what's really going on here, because our society is being completely redesigned in front of our eyes.

There's a reason why all these big businesses are speaking out now, and it has very little to do with genuine ideology, Glenn explained. It's all about ESG scores and forcing "compliance" through the monetization of social justice.

Glenn went on to detail exactly what ESG scores are, how they're calculated, and why these social credit scores explain the latest moves from "woke" companies.

Dallas Jenkins is a storyteller — and he's telling the most important story of all time in a way that many believed was impossible.

Jenkins is the creator of "The Chosen," a free, crowdfunded series about the life of Jesus that rivals Hollywood productions. And Season 2 could not have arrived at a better time — on Easter weekend 2021. Church attendance has dropped, people are hungry for something bigger than all of us, and many are choosing social justice activism, political parties, or even the climate change movement as "religions" over God.

This Easter weekend, Jenkins joined Glenn on the "Glenn Beck Podcast" to discuss the aspects of Jesus that often get overlooked and break through the misconceptions about who Jesus really is to paint a clear picture of why America needs Emmanuel, "God with us," now more than ever.

Award-winning investigative journalist Lara Logan joined Glenn Beck on the radio program this week to argue the Biden administration's border crisis is "enabling" drug cartels, allowing them to exploit migrants, use border wall construction roads, and cross the border much more easily.

Lara, who has witnessed and experienced firsthand some of the worst violence around the world as a war correspondent for CBS News, told Glenn it's "not an overstatement" to call the cartels in Mexico "the most violent and powerful criminal organizations on the face of the earth." And while they're "at war with us, we've been asleep at the wheel."

But Lara also offers solutions that the U.S. can enact to stop these horrific atrocities.

"There's more than 30,000 Mexican civilians who are massacred every year in Mexico by the cartels. And that's just the bodies that the Mexican government owns up to or knows about, right?" Lara said. "There's Mexicans buried in unmarked mass graves all across the country. I mean, everyone knows that the violence of the cartels is not like anything anyone has ever seen before. It even pales in comparison to, at times, to what terrorist groups like ISIS have done."

Lara went on to explain some of the unspeakable acts of violence and murder that occur at the hands of the Mexican cartels — 98% of which go uninvestigated.

"That's not unprosecuted, Glenn. That's uninvestigated," Lara emphasized. "[Cartels] operate with impunity. So the law enforcement guy, the policemen, the marine, the National Guardsmen, who are trying to do the right thing, who are not in the pocket of the cartels — what chance do those guys have? They've got no chance. You know where they end up? In one of those unmarked graves."
