Glenn Beck's Recommended Reading

GLENN: You know, I told you last week that there is a great history book out, A Patriot's History of the United States: From Columbus' Great Discovery to the War on Terror, and it is, I don't know, five, six years old and I found it from Larry Schwartzkopf, a guy who was   or not Schwartzkopf but Schweikart, Larry Schweikart who is a guy who has been on the show a couple of times. And I started reading it and I just love it. I think it's a must read for every American. But I was looking, I was checking last night on Amazon.com. I was looking to see how it was doing because I'm thrilled. I mean, this is the little history book that could. You know, I don't get a dime off it. There's no profit for me in any way, shape or form. I just love to see people who have toiled their whole life and everybody bashed them and then they do good.

Well, here's a review that I found on Amazon.com. And by the way, the book is now number one on Amazon.com. And it says, at first I must point out I'm a 30 year critic of American academia, especially departments of humanities, arts and sciences. I'm a former dual Ph.D. candidate in left academia in 1980 and never looked back. I battled political correctness before it had a name. He goes in to talk about how there are some good college professors and a lot of really bad ones. But most of them don't have any real courage. He says, believe me, it took courage to publish Patriot's History. The authors will get much grief from many other academic historians for daring to write a real critique of American history writing. Other professors who agree with authors who will choose to be silent, and a few of them may even criticize A Patriot's History in a vain attempt to be less hated by the left liberal academics they must interact with on campus. I highly recommend that all literate or educated people read this book. It will balance your image of our past that you were most likely force fed. I strongly advise that you pay no attention to those who trash this book or its authors. Keep in mind when you read history this is so well stated. Keep in mind that when you read history, you do not read scientific data about the past. That is impossible. What you read is a writing based on written documents. A lot of judgment calls and opinion go into writing any history. The less broadly educated the author, the less value will be to the author's attempt to reconstruct the past. Too many academic historians today never even try to reconstruct the past, which is supposed to be the historian's elusive craft. They let you think that this is what they try to do but too many of them just use written documents and are highly dense or very smooth prose to support the personal history writing or ideology, which means most of it is penned by academics and is not worth reading. No one, for instance, should be awarded a Ph.D. in American history who doesn't have a firm grasp on world history. A decent start in yada, yada, yada. I do not suggest that the Patriot's History is a perfect book or it contains the whole truth. But then again neither do the authors.

That is probably the best review, that would make me buy this book. Because you are not saying you can't. You are not saying this is the ultimate book, this is the ultimate history. This is exactly right. The best thing about it is you will learn stuff in history you never even knew existed, never knew existed. It's easy to read. And I mean this. It should be a must read for your family. The Five Thousand Year Leap and a Patriot's History. A must read. The Real George Washington, The Real Thomas Jefferson, The Real Ben Franklin, A Patriot's History. A Five Thousand the Five Thousand Year Leap, a must read: Just open up the mind a little bit. Put some things in there that you haven't seen before.

All right, we'll see you tonight at 5:00 as history is written yet another day, we'll try to correct the errors of the media history writers at 5:00 today on the Fox News Channel. We'll see you then.

An Afghan interpreter who helped save then-Sen. Joe Biden's life in 2008 was among those stranded in Afghanistan after Biden's troop withdrawal. He has now escaped the country with his family, but not with President Biden's help.

Thanks to private organizations, including The Nazarene Fund, the interpreter and his family have now been rescued.

A shocking new report by The Daily Wire reveals that the furious father whose arrest at a school board meeting likely sparked the call for the FBI to investigate anti-CRT parents like domestic terrorists was furious for good reasons: The Loudoun County School Board allegedly tried to cover up his daughter's rape.

Rep. Chris Stewart (R-Utah) joined Glenn Beck on the radio program Tuesday to discuss the incident and explain why he joined 60 lawmakers in a letter to Attorney General Merrick Garland demanding answers for why the FBI is targeting parents.

"We want to know ... what kind of coordination took place between the White House, activist groups and teachers unions, and the Department of Justice," Stewart told Glenn. "Because we have evidence that there was [coordination] and, in fact, that the White House are the ones who initiated this. They asked for these activist groups to write this inflammatory letter to the Department of Justice saying they were 'intimidated' and that they 'felt threatened', giving the Department of Justice Attorney General Garland, the excuse to say, 'Okay, well, we have to respond'."

Stewart went on to say he believes the federal government would only involve the FBI in such an issue if its purpose is to silence and intimidate parents concerned about the "poison" being taught to their kids in school. So, what can he and the other representatives who disagree with the Biden administration's overreach of power do to stop it?

Taiwan's Foreign Minister Joseph Wu is now warning that his nation is preparing for war with China after Beijing flew a record number of warplanes over Taiwanese territory. Wu reached out to another country for help, but it wasn't the United States.

In a video, Wu urged Australia to help prepare for a possible invasion, but gave the U.S. no mention.

"The defense of Taiwan is in our own hands, and we are absolutely committed to that. And if China is going to launch a war against Taiwan, we will fight until the end. And that is our commitment. And, of course, during this period of time, we would like to exchange with other countries for security cooperation," Wu said on ABC News In-depth's China Tonight program. "We would like to engage in security or intelligence exchanges with other like-minded partners, Australia included, so that Taiwan is better prepared to deal with the war situation. And so far, our relations with Australia is very good. And that is what we appreciate it for."

On "The Glenn Beck Program," Glenn, Pat Gray, and Stu Burguiere discussed whether or not America would do anything during such a conflict — because it sure seems like President Joe Biden is more focused on working with China to fight climate change. Plus, why did China just cut off all cryptocurrency?

On "Glenn TV" tonight, Glenn Beck heads to the chalkboard to reveal how the fundamental transformation of America has already begun by turning the Declaration of Independence upside down.

If Donald Trump was a dictator, then what do we call President Biden? In Biden's first nine months in office, he has already issued 64 executive orders – that's more than Trump, Obama, W. Bush, Clinton, Bush, and Reagan each issued in their entire first years in office.

You never hear the Left talk about the Declaration of Independence, the Constitution, or the Bill of Rights any more, unless it's to "reimagine" the Constitution or slap a "harmful content" warning on our founding documents. Seriously. The National Archives said while its website label wasn't targeting the Constitution specifically, "some of the materials presented here may reflect outdated, biased, offensive, and possibly violent views and opinions." The Left finds basic, guaranteed rights so offensive they now spend all of their time on workarounds to deal with America's annoying founding documents.

Watch the full episode of "Glenn TV" below to see Glenn outline the aggressive unconstitutional abuses "King Biden" is jamming down our throats and teaches Americans how we can defend against presidential tyranny.
