#AskGlennAnything

Glenn had so much fun last week answering all your questions he decided to do it again. Using the hashtag #AskGlennAnything on Twitter, Glenn took time on radio today to answer as many fan questions as he could. There's never a dull moment when Glenn interacts with the audience. What'd he have to say?

What is the best way to get kids excited about history and bring it to life for them?

My experience is if we can switch places. So in other words, I go your house and teach your kids, you come to my house and teach my kids, because my kids don't care about anything I say.I've been in the car several times and I'll be telling this great story and they start talking about something else. And I look at my wife and like, people pay good money to hear me tell great stories. My kids won't listen to any of my stories. They won't. It's like really?

How do you find that balance between maintaining your sanity yet being informed?

You think I've retained my sanity? We all look at the news and we go, we all just lose ourselves and go, this is over...We're running this giant company and I'm involved in all of it and I don't actually do the things I'm supposed to do at work. I'm doing all the other crap at work. And so I don't -- when I get home, I read, I write. It's the only time I have to really write something is at home....So what I have to do is I have to get up in the middle of the night and write.

How can we help you? Is there anything we can do other than pray for your safety and good health?

Because I care about you, here's what you can do. I mean this sincerely. Buy Comcast and then put us on. Don't send us checks or anything. I just want to you buy Comcast. So you get it in the end. You'll have Comcast. You're going to be rich beyond your wildest dreams. And we also win in that. (editor's note: Lots of sarcasm in this answer)

My 18-year-old is planning on joining the ROTC program. This terrifies me. I know we need good people in the military, but the leadership is so corrupt. I tell him we'll need him here protecting his own country and people. It's such a fantasy for these young men. What would you say to your son?

Run for your life. I wouldn't want my son joining the military now...Starting Tuesday, election day, until the next president, this is the most dangerous time in our nation's history...this is the most dangerous. Without something happening, all it's going to take is a Black Swan event. And I think we could be in deep, deep trouble. We have a chance of losing our country in the next two to three years.

What did we find out yesterday? We found out that they're quarantining our soldiers in Italy and what is Italy saying? Did you read this yesterday? They announced it yesterday afternoon that the soldiers -- our soldiers are being quarantined after the Ebola thing in Italy. And Italy is like, you're not coming on our shores. You're not coming in with your soldiers and -- and bringing Ebola into us. If they're going to be quarantined, they can be quarantined in the United States. They're not coming to Italy. And they have every right to.

And quite honestly, you're exactly right about the ROTC. I love the military. I absolutely love the military. We have a lot of really great people in there. But I have to tell you, I think we're going to have trouble in the homeland, because if an economic collapse, is coming. I don't know when. It could be tomorrow with a Black Swan event. It could be in five years or 10 years from now. I don't know. But it is coming. And unless we really hold ourselves together and start reaching out to one another and loving one another, and saying, hey, we disagree with each other but you and I, we're Americans, we're Americans and we're in this together. Unless we do that, we're in deep trouble.

On last week's Wednesday night special, Glenn Beck revealed where the Black Lives Matter organization really gets its funding, and the dark money trail leading to a cast of familiar characters. Shortly after the program aired, one of BLM's fiscal sponsors, Thousand Currents, took down its board of directors page, which featured one of these shady characters:

Ex-Marxist professor and author of "Beyond Woke," Michael Rectenwald, joined Glenn Beck on the TV show to fill us in on the suspicious change he discovered on the Thousand Currents webpage and the Communist terrorists who is now helping run the organization. (Fortunately, the internet is forever, so it is still possible to view the board of directors page by looking at a web archive from the WayBack Machine.)

Rectenwald revealed the shocking life history of Thousand Currents' vice chair of the board, Susan Rosenberg, who spent 16 years in federal prison for her part in a series of increasingly violent acts of terrorism, including bombing the U.S. Capitol building, bombing an FBI building, and targeting police for assassination.

"Their whole campaign was one of unbelievably vicious, murderous cop killings, assassinations, and bombings," explained Rectenwald of Rosenberg's terror group known as the May 19th Communist Organization or M19.

​Facebook BOYCOTT: Major corporations demand MORE social media censorship

A Facebook anti-hate campaign called "Stop Hate for Profit" is gaining momentum, leading large companies like Patagonia, North Face, REI, and Ben & Jerry's to pull advertising revenue if Facebook doesn't do more to "stop the spread of hateful lies and dangerous propaganda on its platform."

But, what is considered "hateful"? It's anything that goes against the mob, and they won't stop with Facebook. Any voices that speak out against the progressive narrative will soon be censored and silenced. The more this campaign grows, the more our freedom of speech diminishes.

Do you recognize your country anymore?

Me neither.

Not only is history being made, it's being rewritten and our history is being lost to Marxist revolutionaries as statues are toppled and Merriam-Webster changes our language. Does this passage from George Orwell's 1984 seem eerily similar to our day?:

"Every record has been destroyed or falsified, every book rewritten, every picture has been repainted, every statue and street building has been renamed, every date has been altered. And the process is continuing day by day and minute by minute. History has stopped. Nothing exists except an endless present in which the Party is always right." 1984, George Orwell

In the digital age, book burning is unnecessary. "Inappropriate" material just evaporates into the ether with a simple keystroke. The days I've been warning about for years are finally upon us and we need to be able to call on the wisdom of our Founding Fathers and other brilliant patriots and if you are relying on digital copies, you could find yourself out of luck.

Knowledge truly is power and we are now in the time where we need all the resources we can get, so I put together this list of the books you HAVE to have in your personal libraries. Along with these selections, I earnestly advise that you keep a journal. Your personal history is powerful and being able to preserve your thoughts and feelings for your posterity to learn from is an invaluable addition to any library.

I'd also suggest you look into Mercury One's "Leadership Training Program," the tools learned will be invaluable as you are able to inspect and learn from original sources as well as being taught by passionate historians. Stay tuned on this front, we have some exciting announcements coming soon.

You ARE the audience that will save the Republic and you have been prepared over the years for the role you need to play. I thank you from the bottom of my heart for being the people that Alexis de Tocqueville wrote about. America is good because it's people are good.

Keep up the good fight and God bless!
