Thank You for Watching hiSTORY

We premiered episode number one of hiSTORY about Tesla and Edison. It's a two-part episode, and you can watch the first one for free, in its entirety, at GlennBeck.com. We're giving you this free sneak peek for the next day or two. Part two is really remarkable as well, and it will air next Tuesday. These will all available as free podcasts as well.

I'm really trying to concentrate on history and tell the stories that connect us to our principles. And, quite honestly, correct some of the mistakes of history. One of those mistakes, I think, is the battle of the currents between Edison and Tesla. It's different from the story most people tell.

The central character that drives this story, really, is a murderer. And while our history books make it seem as if Edison won, it was really Tesla. Edison was a very bad guy. He was a guy that colluded with the government, colluded with big business, colluded with Wall Street and stomped out the competition. Tesla is the real hero, and I think we have a perspective on Tesla that is unlike anything I've ever heard before.

Also, I want to thank you. I was so happy to read the reviews yesterday from TheBlaze subscribers. Here are just a few:

Glenn, the show was great. I watched the Think Tank show yesterday on demand. Finally, the shows I've been waiting for you to do for so long. I can't wait to see what else you have in store for us with The Vault.

Mr. Beck, brilliant. You're a master storyteller. Thank you. Thank you. And, again, thank you. This is by far a favorite for me.

Glenn, loved the show. Fantastic storyteller. I already knew that. But this was outstanding. Can't wait for the next show.

Glenn, that first episode was fantastic. Can't wait for number two. I was in the hotel electrical supply business for 30 years. I've been interested in George Westinghouse, as he was instrumental in the modern electrical systems. Thanks so much.

Glenn, loved the show tonight. His Story. I don't think I can wait till next week to hear the conclusion. You're killing me. Keep these shows coming.

Glenn, it was awesome. Can't wait to see what TheBlaze has in store. The new shows are amazing.

Glenn, loved tonight's episode. History is so much more interesting when it's told as a story. Can't wait until next week.

Glenn, my daughter and I curled up on the couch and we watched it. We can't wait for the next week to get here. Thanks for making history interesting for me and my daughter.

This new season takes things in a whole new direction, and I'm so pleased you're coming with us on this journey.

One person on Facebook said, Glenn, I see light in your eyes. There were several people that said this is the Glenn we've been waiting for. They saw it again in my face, and that is true. I love history. And I love learning history to be able to do these stories.

I hope you also enjoy our new show called Vault. We recently taped an episode, and I am so excited. Ellen, who is head of content, was on the set with us and I asked, Is this all making sense? because I just tell the stories. She said, Your excitement to learn about this is infectious. We're all learning together, and it's fantastic.

If you want to learn about history -- but more importantly, the principles behind the stories and what they teach us --- join us for our new season featuring hiSTORY and Vault, available on The Blaze TV.

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!

These 28 Principles include The Genius of Natural Law, Virtuous and Moral Leaders, Equal Rights--Not Equal Things, and Avoiding the Burden of Debt.
