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.

A recent report from Rolling Stone details a public letter sent to Spotify — signed by "270 physicians and scientists" — demanding that the platform implement a "misinformation policy" in response to Joe Rogan's recent interview with Dr. Robert Malone on “The Joe Rogan Experience.”

"This is absolute fascism," Glenn Beck said on the radio program. "There is no safe space. They're coming after talk radio. They're coming after our podcasts. They're coming after our websites."

Glenn said this is this is just one more example of the left's crackdown on freedom of speech and further prove of their ongoing fight against free thinkers or anybody who wants to have an open conversation that may include ideas contrary to what they believe.

There is no transparency when it comes to the Biden administration, and Texas Republican Sen. Ted Cruz's recent exchange with the FBI’s Jill Sanborn is just another example. When questioned about alleged involvement the FBI had on January 6, 2021, Sanborn refused to answer almost every single time.

Do our government officials still work for us? Take a look at the latest headlines: The DOJ and U.S. Army are preparing for possible conflicts with "domestic terrorists," Biden's education secretary allegedly requested the NSBA letter that suggested treating upset parents like domestic terrorists, and President Biden said if you're not with him on the Democrats' voting bills, then you're with the Confederacy. Meanwhile, the FBI won't tell Congress whether it was involved in the the Jan. 6 Capitol riot and the corporate media insists that there's nothing to see here, especially concerning Ray Epps.

The American people are concerned, and it’s "extraordinarily disturbing" how far the federal government goes to avoid answering our questions, Glenn Beck said on the radio program. There's a very odd growing trend here: Our leaders, including the unelected ones, no longer answer to the people. This must stop now.

"The question that I have is, where is the transparency? And is anyone going to be held accountable? They are not afraid of our senators. They are not afraid of Congress," he stated. "This has got to stop. They have got to answer to the law. This is an oversight committee. Who is in charge, the FBI or the people? Once the people are not in charge and are not allowed to see the secret documents, we are toast. Toast!"

Have you ever wondered why so many insane things are happening simultaneously RIGHT NOW? Big corporations are going woke. The stock market got red-hot during a FORCED recession.

On Wednesday's "GlennTV" special, Glenn Beck explains it all in this sneak-peek episode — a primer to his new book and the upcoming explosive, in-depth special: “The Great Reset: Joe Biden & the Rise of 21st-Century Fascism.” Co-author Justin Haskins joins along with Glenn’s head writer and researcher, Jason Buttrill, to answer audience questions about a topic that the media has tried to censor and “fact-check.” You will be equipped with everything you need to know about what the global elites of the world have planned for the transformation of society and YOUR life.

After new information came out that suggests Dr. Anthony Fauci intimidated and bribed scientists into dismissing the COVID-19 lab-leak theory, Sen. Rand Paul and Fauci got into a heated debate in a Senate hearing. But instead of providing answers, Fauci accused Sen. Paul of endangering him.

Sen. Paul joined "The Glenn Beck Program" Wednesday with his response and explained why he believes "people live in fear of what [Fauci] will do to them."

"It's all about money. If you cross Tony Fauci, you don't get your money. He controls the purse strings for the entire country, the entire university system. And he's been doing it for forty years," Sen. Paul began.

"It's consistent with his arrogance, this level of arrogance that he's developed. He said several weeks ago, that he is science and any attack on him is an attack on science. Yesterday, he said anybody who opposes him is encouraging death threats," he added.

"Look, I've been on the receiving end of semi-automatic gunfire. I was 20 yards away from Steve Scalise when he almost died. I was 10 feet away from a staffer that was shot. And, you know what? The guy doing the shooting was a Bernie Sanders supporter. But not one of us, not one of the Republicans on the ball field, said, 'Oh, it was Bernie Sanders' fault.' But that's the juvenile level of personal attack that Fauci is now stooping to. He is saying that the personal threats he gets are actually the fault of his critics."

Sen. Paul continued, "But the thing is, [Fauci] needs to answer the question. Everything he did in the committee yesterday was misdirection so he didn't have to answer the question. The question was, why did he smear three scientists from Stanford, Oxford, and Harvard? Why did he smear them as fringe epidemiologists? And why did he conspire against Francis Collins to take them down in a very public way? He wouldn't answer the question."
