‘Enough is enough’ - regular citizens saved our nation by taking a stand

While it might be easy to act like deer in the headlights when hearing about the atrocities of ISIS in the Middle East and the disregard for unborn life in our own country, history reminds us the power of individuals when they simply stood up for what they knew was right.

David Barton joined Glenn on TV Wednesday, and told the story of Benedict Arnold, the infamous general who defected to the British Army after attempting to facilitate the British capture West Point during the Revolutionary War.

"I knew part of this story," Glenn said on radio Thursday. "But I didn't know about the part where it was just regular citizens who decided to say, 'enough is enough.'"

David Barton recounted how Arnold's treasonous plan was foiled by a handful of men who simply took matters into their own hands.

"These guys, along with some others, had been British prisoners and had escaped from a British prison. And a guy named John Paulding got all these other guys together and said, hey, why don't we set up our own little group right here and give the British some grief?" Barton said.

They set up a checkpoint in the middle of British held territory, where they apprehended the spy Arnold had sent to deliver plans for the capture of West Point. They prevented the takeover and saved the life of George Washington in the process. Had they not stood up and done what they did, our nation may never have been established.

Glenn encouraged his listeners to look for ways to be like John Paulding and stand for life - Never Again Is Now!

"We all must begin to stand. This is our Bonhoeffer moment. This is our Martin Luther King moment. This is our Gandhi moment," Glenn said.

​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.

On his TV show Wednesday night, Glenn revealed where Black Lives Matter gets its considerable funding, and the dark money trail leading to a cast of familiar progressive characters.

Shortly after this program aired, one of the organizations, Thousand Currents, took down their board of directors page, which featured one of these characters.

Michael Rectenwald, a guest on Glenn's show, pointed out the suspicious change on Twitter.

Coincidence?

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. Here's a screenshot:

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!

The 5000 Year Leap, by W. Cleon Skousen ​

The nation the Founders built is now in the throes of a political, economic, social, and spiritual crisis that has driven many to an almost frantic search for modern solutions. The truth is that the solutions have been available for a long time -- in the writings of our Founding Fathers -- carefully set forth in this timely book.

In The 5000 Year Leap: A Miracle That Changed the World, Discover the 28 Principles of Freedom our Founding Fathers said must be understood and perpetuated by every people who desire peace, prosperity, and freedom. Learn how adherence to these beliefs during the past 200 years has brought about more progress than was made in the previous 5000 years. These 28 Principles include The Genius of Natural Law, Virtuous and Moral Leaders, Equal Rights--Not Equal Things, and Avoiding the Burden of Debt.

On his Wednesday night special this week, Glenn Beck revealed what no one else is willing to talk about for fear of being labeled a "racist" or "conspiracy theorist." Glenn dug deep into Black Lives Matter's finance books to expose where the organization gets its considerable funding, and where the money is actually being funneled. It's a dark money trail that leads to a cast of familiar progressive characters.

Ex-Marxist professor and author of "Beyond Woke," Michael Rectenwald, joined the show to uncover the violent origins of some of the leadership financially connected to Black Lives Matter.
