Glenn: We all have a part to play

Glenn talks a lot about how he doesn't always know what God's plan is, but that he often finds himself in prayer and moved to do certain things - even if he doesn't know why. For over five years, he has focused on delivering news and opinion that can't be found on any other network, while also uniting and energizing libertarians and conservatives through live events and inspirational programming on TV. But most loyal viewers have heard Glenn say that a few days after Restoring Honor in 2010, he told his wife Tania that he was "standing in the wrong place".

While Glenn has been ringing the bell and sharing the news that the mainstream media refuses to tell, he also knows it's time to expand into films, music, and other projects so that he can impact the culture and reach people who have never heard the message because they aren't tuned into the news of the day. That effort, the need to keep the people who are awake focused and energized while also expanding the choir, was the focus of Wednesday's monologue.

Below is a transcript of Wednesday's monologue:

This is the network that you are building, and you are building quite a building. You really are. What you are building is going to have vast ramifications, and it’s good. I will tell you, some days I am so sick of talking about this President and the people in his administration. They’re overwhelming the system, we got it.

He’s got so many lies out there, there’s not enough time in a 24-hour day to cover all of them, and honestly even if I could cover all of them, I don’t want to spend the rest of my life doing this. Do you? I mean, don’t you just want to – all men are created equal and endowed by their Creator with certain unalienable rights, among these rights life, liberty, and the pursuit of happiness. I want to pursue the things that make me happy. How about you?

I just feel like we’re preaching to the choir, and we’ve been here for a while. And the choir is sick of it. I got it, I got it. We need some more choir. That’s what we need. We built this network, we built this network to cover the stories that no one else covers, to ask the questions that no one else asks, things like the president enrollment claims that he gave in his ridiculous speech yesterday, we had 7.1. No, he didn’t. No, he did not. Paying, the number is between 2 million and as low as 800,000. Where is the press?

Or how about this one, Mr. President, is it true you hired a socialist in the Consumer Protection Bureau? Really, a socialist? Despite the stark realities of socialism in Venezuela where they’re actually now on the streets, they’re facing food rationing, they’re being issued ID cards to track their grocery purchases. You can go and get your groceries, sure. You can’t go into a grocery store for another eight days. That’s socialism.

I get it. Do you get it? You think this guy is not a socialist? I know who he is. You know who he is. The problems persist, and somebody has to tell the truth. That’s why we call one of our main shows For the Record, because somebody has to say for the record, this is the truth. And we’ll continue to tell it here at TheBlaze. My job as I see it is multifaceted, but the longest one, the one I got off the stage in 8/28, and I went on vacation. And I said to my wife we’re standing in the wrong place.

I knew I was supposed to build something, and I was supposed to build a network and draw a crowd to get people to know there is a place for truth. The truth can be heard. You can network with other people. We’ve done that. I found out last night we now finished the month with 35 million unique visitors last month. You can play page view game all you want, but this is 35, that’s 10% of the U.S. population now last month visited TheBlaze. Those are not repeat, 35 million unique users.

That makes TheBlaze the 43rd largest website in the country. That’s ahead of news sites like FOXNews.com, CNN.com. I remember CNN, when I was at CNN, they were telling me that CNN.com was bigger than the actual network. TheBlaze is now bigger than CNN.com. It’s bigger than theNewYorkTimes.com, bigger than NBC News. It’s incredible. It’s absolutely incredible.

I’m going to fill you in because if you speak it into existence, it happens. I gave a goal to my staff of 41 million Americans read TheBlaze every month. That was my year end goal, 41 million. I will tell you that by election day, not this year, by the election, I want 75 million. So you know, that is so unheard of, that number. That would put us in the top 10 websites in the entire country, and in the top 10, Google, Facebook. That’s who you’re playing ball with.

We’ve got to get into 75 million, my real goal honestly, 100 million, dream big. My job is to expand the footprint for the truth and not to get bogged down. And I got so angry this morning when I hear all this stuff, I’m like I got it. And I know you feel the same way. But as soon as you start to feel the anger, they’ve got you. Those in power, that’s what they want.

When we are consumed by their corruption, their dysfunction, their lies, it empowers them because it hardens our hearts. It makes you go no way out, nothing left to do, just give up, close up, close in, turn in, grab your family. You need a way out. You and I both want to be more than just the fan that points to the problem and cheers for our side, and when somebody gets it wrong we say yeah, well, we told you. We don’t want to be I told you.

I don’t care about Washington, but we have to solve the problem so you and I can get and do what we’re supposed to do. Now, a big part of that solution is staying informed. I get it. I get it. But a bigger part is getting involved. This is why I told you take the 40-day and 40-night challenge. This is before 8/28, a few months before because I could feel something big happening, and I knew it. And I said we’ve got to be bigger people.

And the last line in the Declaration of Independence is with firm reliance on the protection of divine providence, we mutually pledge to each other our lives, our fortunes, and our sacred honor. And I said I want you to really live that last line. I want you to know what every word really means to you, and I want you to get down on your knees and ask a few questions.

There are four steps that I asked you to do. And millions of Americans did it. And if you’ve already done it, do it again. If you’ve done it over and over again, if you know all of this, I want you to get this book. This book, I think, is changing my life, I really do. I have been praying differently, in fact, we’ve been praying around this building. There’s a group of us that walk every afternoon at the end of our day, and we pray around this building.

And I found out early this morning that somebody else has been praying around this building that works for me, and I didn’t have any idea. He happened to be here early, early, early this morning, and somebody said to him what are you doing? He says I just feel like I should pray around this building. He didn’t know that we were praying around this building, and I felt compelled to pray around this building.

Then I read this book, and then I’m like oh crap, I really have to pray around this building. He didn’t read this book. He’d never talked to me. He didn’t know we were even doing it. He said to me just about an hour ago when I talked to him, “I felt like in prayer that I was supposed to do that. We’re supposed to do that, Glenn.” I don’t know what God is doing, I really don’t. I have no idea. You don’t know how many times I’m in this position going, “I don’t get it, it won’t work, I don’t know what you’re doing.” And every time, he says you don’t have to, just do it.

Whatever he’s doing does not revolve around me or revolve around this. It revolves around him, and we all have a part in it. This is one little piece. My piece is one little piece, and I think it will all make sense in the end. I think we’re all going to stand back and go holy cow, but being a part of it is going to change your life. It will refocus you on everything that really matters. And once you do that, once you do your part, whatever it is, you’re going to change the lives of others all around you.

And at the same time, if we can continue to grow the footprint, the size of the choir, a ripple effect across the whole world, millions of people. Five years ago, think of this, I was on stage in Washington, D.C. for that, and you were there. And we were so worried about our country. I’m just as worried as I was then. But we were begging people, I know, because I took your phone calls, begging people rise up, please, anyone, rise up and serve, isn’t there anyone with some integrity and some brains that will serve?

We were looking for the next George Washington. It’s happening. It’s happening. Mark it, declare it, it’s happening. Rand Paul, Mike Lee, Ted Cruz, the candidates that are sprouting up all across the country, people like Ben Sasse. That guy’s a good guy, Matt Bevin, unbelievable, Greg Brannon, hello?

And there’s more, and if they don’t happen to be in your district or your state, support them because those are the guys that were called. They heard the call because of you and millions of others just like you that took a stand in life and said you know what, this is what we need in this country. And they heard the call, and now they’re there. Now’s not the time to retreat or say I’m tired. Now’s the time to double down.

Saturday, I’m going to FreePAC. I am really tired, I’m tired of traveling. I was on the plane on Sunday, and I said I can’t take travel anymore. I’d much rather be with my family at home, and I know you feel the same way. We are not different. I love my children, and I love my family. And I’ve never, ever been in this position in my whole life where I’ve wanted to spend time with all of my children and my wife more than I do right now.

But we’ve got to stay in the game because we are close. These elections this fall really matter. So we’ve got to buckle down, work hard, get into the ground game, promote from within, and increase the ranks of the choir. ObamaCare is going to collapse on its own weight, and before things get better, understand, it’s going to get much, much worse.

On Sunday, there was an economist, his name is Martin Armstrong, he posted an article about civil unrest. He warned governments to wake up. He said wake up, “for we are on the brink of a major convergence between both the cycle of civil unrest, civil war & revolution an international war.” He said he’s never seen anything like this. The cycle has not been like this, there’s a cycle to war, he said it’s not been like this since the 1700s.

And he said democracies, Democratic republics, you’re in trouble. It’s not just the Communist dictators because your people have sold you out too. You know it, you feel it. In fact, you know this song by heart. I mean, how many times have we sung the song that he was just singing? For years, for years – the protest, cascade, sweep the Middle East, destabilize Europe and the rest of the world to work together against Israel, against capitalism, and together overturn stability. That’s it.

And the time is here, and the time for us now to go outside the walls because the harvest in the field is white. It’s going to be tough, but it’s an opportunity to show people the truth and get new people on board. Last week, I went to Los Angeles. I was working on some projects because we’re going to go into the film business. I don’t know how, I don’t have the money, but we’re going into the film business. And so I went out to Los Angeles.

This is me on the Paramount set, and we were looking how they were building sets and how they use their space. And after this, I went to speak at the Friends of Abe in Hollywood. What an incredible room of talented people that was, I mean, mind boggling. There are so many in Hollywood that have reached out to me since. I’ve never done this before, I think there were, well, there were several hundred people there, and I just gave out my private e-mail address and said here, you guys can have my e-mail address.

And I can’t tell you how many people have reached out to me wanting to do something to impact the culture. And I don’t mean with me, per se. I mean, they’re doing it themselves. But that’s where we need to be, and I don’t mean in Hollywood. I mean where people actually live. The blown opportunity for Hollywood with Noah is staggering. I have a list on my desk, it is a mile long of projects, shows, television shows, news programs, films, stage, music, you name it, everything. It’s a mile long, and none of those things have anything to do with President Obama and his stupid fake healthcare numbers because that’s going to come crashing down. What comes after?

Don’t be anywhere near the crash site when it comes down. Don’t get bogged down in the mud. We have to lift ourselves and each other out and show them the light, and I don’t mean light in the PC sense. There is something huge at play here, and it’s bigger than the Republicans and the Democrats. It’s bigger than money. It’s bigger than jobs. It’s bigger than you. It’s bigger than me. And I know it’s true because look at how Hollywood is self-destructing on Noah, and meanwhile, there’s two God films out that are not coming through the Hollywood system.

One is God’s Not Dead, which is huge. I haven’t seen it yet, but I hear great things about it, and it’s gigantic. And the other one is Heaven is For Real. Heaven is For Real is a movie from Sony. I watched this last night. It’s great, and it’s about a kid, it’s from a bestseller. That kid doesn’t die on the table. He has his appendix burst, and he almost dies, but he sees heaven. And his dad believes him, wants to believe him, but isn’t sure because he’s a preacher, and what he’s saying isn’t quite right, isn’t quite lining up. And the kid has no business knowing this. You’re four, what are you talking about?

And I’m watching this movie, and it’s speaking to me in a whole different way because that movie is saying exactly what I heard my dad say as he died, his last words, things my father would never say. My father’s last words were, “Okay, I understand. I’m ready. Take me with you.” My dad wasn’t that guy. And as I’m watching this last night, I say to my kids, this is the same story.

Now, why is God telling that kid, why did that happen with my dad? I think it’s for you. I’m supposed to tell you there is a God, there is a heaven, there is a plan. He’s got it under control. Have you always had everything you’ve ever needed? Even in your worst times, have you had everything you needed? Yes. You will again, no matter what comes our way.

The truth is there is a plan. You have a purpose, and you’ve got to get to it. I don’t know what it is, but he’s going to help you carry out that purpose. Just do what he says. At the end of the day, if we just remember that the best farmer in the world is still at the mercy of God for weather and rain, not too much sun but some sun, not too much rain but some rain, the best fisherman in the world doesn’t control the seas. We are nothing when we stop doing the things he’s telling us to do. We’re nothing without him. But with him and with each other, we’re unstoppable.

Editor's Note: Glenn spoke more about the idea of expanding the choir in Wednesday's morning meeting.

From the moment the 33-year-old Thomas Jefferson arrived at the Continental Congress in Philadelphia in 1776, he was on the radical side. That caused John Adams to like him immediately. Then the Congress stuck Jefferson and Adams together on the five-man committee to write a formal statement justifying a break with Great Britain, and their mutual admiration society began.

Jefferson thought Adams should write the Declaration. But Adams protested, saying, “It can't come from me because I'm obnoxious and disliked." Adams reasoned that Jefferson was not obnoxious or disliked, therefore he should write it. Plus, he flattered Jefferson, by telling him he was a great writer. It was a master class in passing the buck.

So, over the next 17 days, Jefferson holed up in his room, applying his lawyer skills to the ideas of the Enlightenment. He borrowed freely from existing documents like the Virginia Declaration of Rights. He later wrote that “he was not striving for originality of principle or sentiment." Instead, he hoped his words served as “an expression of the American mind."

It's safe to say he achieved his goal.

The five-man committee changed about 25 percent of Jefferson's first draft of the Declaration before submitting it to Congress. Then, Congress altered about one-fifth of that draft. But most of the final Declaration's words are Jefferson's, including the most famous passage — the Preamble — which Congress left intact. The result is nothing less than America's mission statement, the words that ultimately bind the nation together. And words that we desperately need to rediscover because of our boiling partisan rage.

The Declaration is brilliant in structure and purpose. It was designed for multiple audiences: the King of Great Britain, the colonists, and the world. And it was designed for multiple purposes: rallying the troops, gaining foreign allies, and announcing the creation of a new country.

The Declaration is structured in five sections: the Introduction, Preamble, the Body composed of two parts, and the Conclusion. It's basically the most genius breakup letter ever written.

In the Introduction, step 1 is the notificationI think we need to break up. And to be fair, I feel I owe you an explanation...

When in the Course of human events, it becomes necessary for one people to dissolve the political bands which have connected them with another…

The Continental Congress felt they were entitled by “the Laws of Nature and of Nature's God" to “dissolve the political bands," but they needed to prove the legitimacy of their cause. They were defying the world's most powerful nation and needed to motivate foreign allies to join the effort. So, they set their struggle within the entire “Course of human events." They're saying, this is no petty political spat — this is a major event in world history.

Step 2 is declaring what you believe in, your standardsHere's what I'm looking for in a healthy relationship...

This is the most famous part of the Declaration; the part school children recite — the Preamble:

We hold these truths to be self-evident, that all men are created equal, that they are endowed by their Creator with certain unalienable Rights, that among these are Life, Liberty and the pursuit of Happiness.

That's as much as many Americans know of the Declaration. But the Preamble is the DNA of our nation, and it really needs to be taken as a whole:

That to secure these rights, Governments are instituted among Men, deriving their just powers from the consent of the governed, That whenever any Form of Government becomes destructive of these ends, it is the Right of the People to alter or to abolish it, and to institute new Government, laying its foundation on such principles and organizing its powers in such form, as to them shall seem most likely to effect their Safety and Happiness.

The Preamble takes us through a logical progression: All men are created equal; God gives all humans certain inherent rights that cannot be denied; these include the rights to life, liberty, and the pursuit of happiness; to protect those rights, we have governments set up; but when a government fails to protect our inherent rights, people have the right to change or replace it.

Government is only there to protect the rights of mankind. They don't have any power unless we give it to them. That was an extraordinarily radical concept then and we're drifting away from it now.

The Preamble is the justification for revolution. But note how they don't mention Great Britain yet. And again, note how they frame it within a universal context. These are fundamental principles, not just squabbling between neighbors. These are the principles that make the Declaration just as relevant today. It's not just a dusty parchment that applied in 1776.

Step 3 is laying out your caseHere's why things didn't work out between us. It's not me, it's you...

This is Part 1 of the Body of the Declaration. It's the section where Jefferson gets to flex his lawyer muscles by listing 27 grievances against the British crown. This is the specific proof of their right to rebellion:

He has obstructed the administration of justice...

For imposing taxes on us without our consent...

For suspending our own legislatures...

For quartering large bodies of armed troops among us...

Again, Congress presented these “causes which impel them to separation" in universal terms to appeal to an international audience. It's like they were saying, by joining our fight you'll be joining mankind's overall fight against tyranny.

Step 4 is demonstrating the actions you took I really tried to make this relationship work, and here's how...

This is Part 2 of the Body. It explains how the colonists attempted to plead their case directly to the British people, only to have the door slammed in their face:

In every stage of these Oppressions We have Petitioned for Redress in the most humble terms: Our repeated Petitions have been answered only by repeated injury...

They too have been deaf to the voice of justice... We must, therefore... hold them, as we hold the rest of mankind, Enemies in War, in Peace Friends.

This basically wrapped up America's argument for independence — we haven't been treated justly, we tried to talk to you about it, but since you refuse to listen and things are only getting worse, we're done here.

Step 5 is stating your intent — So, I think it's best if we go our separate ways. And my decision is final...

This is the powerful Conclusion. If people know any part of the Declaration besides the Preamble, this is it:

...that all political connection between them and the State of Great Britain, is and ought to be totally dissolved...

They left no room for doubt. The relationship was over, and America was going to reboot, on its own, with all the rights of an independent nation.

And for the support of this Declaration, with a firm reliance on the protection of divine Providence, we mutually pledge to each other our Lives, our Fortunes and our sacred Honor.

The message was clear — this was no pitchfork mob. These were serious men who had carefully thought through the issues before taking action. They were putting everything on the line for this cause.

The Declaration of Independence is a landmark in the history of democracy because it was the first formal statement of a people announcing their right to choose their own government. That seems so obvious to us now, but in 1776 it was radical and unprecedented.

In 1825, Jefferson wrote that the purpose of the Declaration was “not to find out new principles, or new arguments, never before thought of… but to place before mankind the common sense of the subject, in terms so plain and firm… to justify ourselves in the independent stand we are compelled to take."

You're not going to do better than the Declaration of Independence. Sure, it worked as a means of breaking away from Great Britain, but its genius is that its principles of equality, inherent rights, and self-government work for all time — as long as we actually know and pursue those principles.

On June 7, 1776, the Second Continental Congress met in Philadelphia at the Pennsylvania State House, better known today as Independence Hall. Virginia delegate Richard Henry Lee introduced a motion calling for the colonies' independence. The “Lee Resolution" was short and sweet:

Resolved, That these United Colonies are, and of right ought to be, free and independent States, that they are absolved from all allegiance to the British Crown, and that all political connection between them and the State of Great Britain is, and ought to be, totally dissolved.

Intense debate followed, and the Congress voted 7 to 5 (with New York abstaining) to postpone a vote on Lee's Resolution. They called a recess for three weeks. In the meantime, the delegates felt they needed to explain what they were doing in writing. So, before the recess, they appointed a five-man committee to come up with a formal statement justifying a break with Great Britain. They appointed two men from New England — Roger Sherman and John Adams; two from the middle colonies — Robert Livingston and Benjamin Franklin; and one Southerner — Thomas Jefferson. The responsibility for writing what would become the Declaration of Independence fell to Jefferson.

In the rotunda of the National Archives building in Washington, D.C., there are three original documents on permanent display: the Constitution, the Bill of Rights, and the Declaration of Independence. These are the three pillars of the United States, yet America barely seems to know them anymore. We need to get reacquainted — quickly.

In a letter to his friend John Adams in 1816, Jefferson wrote: “I like the dreams of the future, better than the history of the past."

America used to be a forward-looking nation of dreamers. We still are in spots, but the national attitude that we hear broadcast loudest across media is not looking toward the future with optimism and hope. In late 2017, a national poll found 59% of Americans think we are currently at the “lowest point in our nation's history that they can remember."

America spends far too much time looking to the past for blame and excuse. And let's be honest, even the Right is often more concerned with “owning the left" than helping point anyone toward the practical principles of the Declaration of Independence. America has clearly lost touch with who we are as a nation. We have a national identity crisis.

The Declaration of Independence is America's thesis statement, and without it America doesn't exist.

It is urgent that we get reacquainted with the Declaration of Independence because postmodernism would have us believe that we've evolved beyond the America of our founding documents, and thus they're irrelevant to the present and the future. But the Declaration of Independence is America's thesis statement, and without it America doesn't exist.

Today, much of the nation is so addicted to partisan indignation that "day-to-day" indignation isn't enough to feed the addiction. So, we're reaching into America's past to help us get our fix. In 2016, Democrats in the Louisiana state legislature tabled a bill that would have required fourth through sixth graders to recite the opening lines of the Declaration. They didn't table it because they thought it would be too difficult or too patriotic. They tabled it because the requirement would include the phrase “all men are created equal" and the progressives in the Louisiana legislature didn't want the children to have to recite a lie. Representative Barbara Norton said, “One thing that I do know is, all men are not created equal. When I think back in 1776, July the fourth, African Americans were slaves. And for you to bring a bill to request that our children will recite the Declaration, I think it's a little bit unfair to us. To ask our children to recite something that's not the truth. And for you to ask those children to repeat the Declaration stating that all men's are free. I think that's unfair."

Remarkable — an elected representative saying it wouldn't be fair for students to have to recite the Declaration because “all men are not created equal." Another Louisiana Democrat explained that the government born out of the Declaration “was used against races of people." I guess they missed that part in school where they might have learned that the same government later made slavery illegal and amended the Constitution to guarantee all men equal protection under the law. The 13th, 14th, and 15th Amendments were an admission of guilt by the nation regarding slavery, and an effort to right the wrongs.

Yet, the progressive logic goes something like this: many of the men who signed the Declaration of Independence, including Thomas Jefferson who wrote it, owned slaves; slavery is evil; therefore, the Declaration of Independence is not valid because it was created by evil slave owners.

It's a sad reality that the left has a very hard time appreciating the universal merits of the Declaration of Independence because they're so hung up on the long-dead issue of slavery. And just to be clear — because people love to take things out of context — of course slavery was horrible. Yes, it is a total stain on our history. But defending the Declaration of Independence is not an effort to excuse any aspect of slavery.

Okay then, people might say, how could the Founders approve the phrase “All men are created equal," when many of them owned slaves? How did they miss that?

They didn't miss it. In fact, Thomas Jefferson included an anti-slavery passage in his first draft of the Declaration. The paragraph blasted King George for condoning slavery and preventing the American Colonies from passing legislation to ban slavery:

He has waged cruel war against human nature itself, violating its most sacred rights to life and liberty in the persons of a distant people who never offended him, captivating and carrying them into slavery in another hemisphere... Determined to keep open a market where men should be bought and sold, he has prostituted his negative for suppressing every legislative attempt to prohibit or to restrain this execrable commerce.

We don't say “execrable" that much anymore. It means, utterly detestable, abominable, abhorrent — basically very bad.

Jefferson was upset when Georgia and North Carolina threw up the biggest resistance to that paragraph. Ultimately, those two states twisted Congress' arm to delete the paragraph.

Still, how could a man calling the slave trade “execrable" be a slaveowner himself? No doubt about it, Jefferson was a flawed human being. He even had slaves from his estate in Virginia attending him while he was in Philadelphia, in the very apartment where he was writing the Declaration.

Many of the Southern Founders deeply believed in the principles of the Declaration yet couldn't bring themselves to upend the basis of their livelihood. By 1806, Virginia law made it more difficult for slave owners to free their slaves, especially if the owner had significant debts as Jefferson did.

At the same time, the Founders were not idiots. They understood the ramifications of signing on to the principles described so eloquently in the Declaration. They understood that logically, slavery would eventually have to be abolished in America because it was unjust, and the words they were committing to paper said as much. Remember, John Adams was on the committee of five that worked on the Declaration and he later said that the Revolution would never be complete until the slaves were free.

Also, the same generation that signed the Declaration started the process of abolition by banning the importation of slaves in 1807. Jefferson was President at the time and he urged Congress to pass the law.

America has an obvious road map that, as a nation, we're not consulting often enough.

The Declaration took a major step toward crippling the institution of slavery. It made the argument for the first time about the fundamental rights of all humans which completely undermined slavery. Planting the seeds to end slavery is not nearly commendable enough for leftist critics, but you can't discount the fact that the seeds were planted. It's like they started an expiration clock for slavery by approving the Declaration. Everything that happened almost a century later to end slavery, and then a century after that with the Civil Rights movement, flowed from the principles voiced in the Declaration.

Ironically for a movement that calls itself progressive, it is obsessed with retrying and judging the past over and over. Progressives consider this a better use of time than actually putting past abuses in the rearview and striving not to be defined by ancestral failures.

It can be very constructive to look to the past, but not when it's used to flog each other in the present. Examining history is useful in providing a road map for the future. And America has an obvious road map that, as a nation, we're not consulting often enough. But it's right there, the original, under glass. The ink is fading, but the words won't die — as long as we continue to discuss them.

'Good Morning Texas' gives exclusive preview of Mercury One museum

Screen shot from Good Morning Texas

Mercury One is holding a special exhibition over the 4th of July weekend, using hundreds of artifacts, documents and augmented reality experiences to showcase the history of slavery — including slavery today — and a path forward. Good Morning Texas reporter Paige McCoy Smith went through the exhibit for an exclusive preview with Mercury One's chief operating officer Michael Little on Tuesday.

Watch the video below to see the full preview.

Over the weekend, journalist Andy Ngo and several other apparent right-leaning people were brutally beaten by masked-gangs of Antifa protesters in Portland, Oregon. Short for "antifascist," Antifa claims to be fighting for social justice and tolerance — by forcibly and violently silencing anyone with opposing opinions. Ngo, who was kicked, punched, and sprayed with an unknown substance, is currently still in the hospital with a "brain bleed" as a result of the savage attack. Watch the video to get the details from Glenn.
