Glenn Beck: Our History Is Being Rewritten





Watch Glenn Beck weekdays at 5p & 2a ET on Fox News Channel

Welcome to another Founders' Friday. We've been doing this special series of shows each week to get you acquainted or reacquainted with the values and principles of the Founding Fathers who created this amazing country.

I wish we didn't have to do this, but we do because, whether it's through the progressive agenda, getting sidetracked or just plain laziness, the Founders are becoming a very distant and faint memory. Not only that, the true history of the Founders is just not taught anymore and when it is, it's being completely distorted with a these-guys-were-all-a-bunch-of-white-racists revisionist history.

Think about the history you've been taught. Who were the greatest presidents of all time? Washington, Lincoln and — routinely lumped in with those two incredible men — Woodrow Wilson and FDR.

You probably remember learning about how FDR rallied America from the worst financial depression in history with the wondrous New Deal. But what you were never taught was that unemployment never went below 14 percent under the New Deal; that many of the New Deal programs were wildly unconstitutional.

FDR's own secretary of the Treasury, Henry Morgenthau, testifying before the House Ways and Means Committee, said: "We are spending more money than we have ever spent before and it does not work.... I want to see this country prosperous. I want to see people get a job. We have never made good on our promises.... I say after eight years of this administration we have just as much unemployment as when we started and an enormous debt to boot."

Morgenthau said that in 1939. But the New Deal is taught as a positive.

Do you ever remember learning about the depression of 1920? Perhaps that's not taught because it was turned around by low tax/reduced government policies of Harding and Coolidge. Harding is routinely ranked one of the worst presidents of all time and Coolidge usually falls in line right behind Nixon.

Woodrow Wilson created a propaganda machine — the Committee on Public Information — whose goal was to drum up support for the war with false stories. To help muzzle dissent, he passed the Sedition Act — you could be sentenced to up to 20 years for forms of expression criticizing the Constitution, the government, the military, or the flag.

We are the keeper of records. We are the best teachers for our children, but we've been taught that it's not our job to teach — only someone with a fancy degree can do that. Tell that to George Washington and James Madison and John Adams and Thomas Jefferson and Abraham Lincoln and the countless others who had some form of home schooling.

I wasn't home schooled, but I'm a self-educated guy. I'm a college dropout. I just received an honorary doctorate this weekend. Don't worry, I won't show up in your operating room — it's a doctorate in humanity, in life. I think that's one of the least arrogant things these universities can do, because they are acknowledging that you don't necessarily need them to learn. I've read everything from every side; it's the only real way to learn: Get all arguments and decide for yourself — debate it with others. Don't just get some information from a section of people with a certain point of view and then stop learning.

Especially now, when history is being changed and revised right in front of our faces.

We're going to talk about some of the things that have happened; things you won't even believe from every time period. For example, what if I told you Donald Rumsfeld, when he was still serving, came out and said $2.3 trillion was unaccounted for — gone. You'd say I was making that up because you've never heard it. You know why? Because he said it on September 10th, 2001:

DEFENSE SECRETARY DONALD RUMSFELD: According to some estimates, we cannot track $2.3 trillion in transactions.

(END VIDEO CLIP)

Obviously the next day changed things and we got sidetracked. But whether it's getting sidetracked or an agenda or because someone writing the textbooks just didn't know it and got it wrong, our history is being revised.

There is an economic collapse of third-world proportions on America's horizon. Nancy Pelosi and Joe Biden hinted at it in statements last week: "Capitalism … has not been serving our economy as well as it should" and "We're about to … literally change the trajectory of our nation for years and possibly decades to come."

The changes the Democratic Party already has in the works are clearly destructive. You have felt it over the last year and a half, in a small supply chain inconvenience here, an incremental price rise there. You've sensed that something is very wrong. It's rumblings of the Great Reset.

Tonight on "Glenn TV," Glenn Beck heads to the chalkboard to break down how America's traditional economic strengths are being severely undermined and, in many ways, systematically torn down by the Biden administration and Democrats in Congress.

This is not "building back better"; this is a managed decline to bring America down to the rest of the world's standard of living. Glenn challenges: Don't let them convince you these are just first world problems. That's the point. America IS a wealthy nation, but we are heading quickly into a second- and third-world collapse. Glenn provides solutions for the managed decline and how you can prepare for the reset that is already in motion.

On the radio program Tuesday, Glenn Beck broke down today's inflation, explaining what it is and giving proof that those at the top — politicians and world elite — continue to take advantage of our declining economy to advance their own agenda. He also revealed how a recent decision by Citibank and powerful investment management company, BlackRock, not only puts the U.S. further behind but also allows for China to gain worldwide control.

For the first time in the history of "The Glenn Beck Program," former President Donald Trump joined Glenn to give his take on America's direction under President Joe Biden compared to his own administration. He explained why Biden's horrific Afghanistan withdrawal was "not even a little bit" like his plan, and why he thinks it was "the most embarrassing event in the history of our country."

Plus, the former president gave his opinion on China's potential takeover of Bagram Air Base, the Pakistani Prime Minister, and Gen. Mark A. Milley, chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff.

Glenn asked President Trump how similar the Biden administration's withdrawal from Afghanistan was to his administration's plan.

"Not even a little bit," Trump answered. "We had a great plan, but it was a very tenuous plan. It was based on many conditions. For instance, you can't kill American soldiers. ... You have to understand, I did want to get out. But I wanted to get out with dignity, and I wanted to take our equipment out. And I didn't want soldiers killed. ... What [Biden] did was just indefensible. He took the military out first and he left all the people. And then we became beggars to get the people out. I had a plan to get them out very quickly. But first, the Americans would go out."

Trump told Glenn that his plan included maintaining Bagram Air Base and explained why he would not have left "a single nail" behind in Afghanistan for the Taliban to seize.

"We were going to keep Bagram open," he explained. "We were never going to close that because, frankly, Bagram is more about China than it is about Afghanistan. It was practically on the other border of China. And now we've lost that. And you know who is taking it over? China is taking it over. We spend $10 billion to build that base. It's got the longest, most powerful runways in the world. And China has now got its representatives there and it looks like they'll take it over. Glenn, it's not believable what's happened. You know, they have Apache helicopters. These are really expensive weapons, and they have 28 of them. And they're brand-new. The latest model."

Glenn mentioned recent reports that Gen. Milley, America's top military officer, made "secret phone calls" to his counterpart in China while President Trump was in office.

"I learned early on that he was a dope," Trump said of Gen. Milley. "He made a statement to me — and I guarantee that's what happened to Biden — because I said, 'We're getting out of Afghanistan. We have to do it.' And I said, 'I want every nail. I want every screw. I want every bolt. I want every plane. I want every tank. I want it all out, down to the nails, screws, bolts ... I want every single thing. And he said, 'Sir, it's cheaper to leave it than it is to bring it.'

"The airplane might have cost $40 million, $50 million ... millions and millions of dollars. So, you think it's cheaper to leave it than to have 200 pilots fly over and fly all the equipment out? ... I said, you've got to be nuts. I mean, give me a tank of gas and a pilot and I just picked up a $40 million-dollar airplane. It was amazing. So, I learned early that this guy is a dope. But what he did, is he hurt our country ... and he shouldn't have been allowed to do it. And bad things should happen to him."

In a shocking but underreported conversation ahead of the G7 Speakers' meeting in London last week, Democratic House Speaker Nancy Pelosi admitted that the administration knows China is committing "genocide" against the Uyghurs in the Xinjiang region, but thinks working with the regime on climate change is more important.

On the radio program, an outraged Glenn Beck dissected Pelosi's speech and broke down how — along with the Biden administration's abandonment of Americans in Afghanistan, and the Democrat decision to follow measures of medical "equity" — the far left is revealing how little they really care about human life.

Glenn played a video clip of Pelosi making the following statement:

We've always felt connected to China, but with their military aggression in the South China Sea, with their continuation of genocide with the Uyghurs in Xinjiang province there, with their violation of the cultural, linguistic, religious priority of Tibet, with their suppression of democracy in Hong Kong and other parts of China, as well – they're just getting worse in terms of suppression, and freedom of speech. So, human rights, security, economically [sic].

Having said all of that ... we have to work together on climate. Climate is an overriding issue and China is the leading emitter in the world, the U.S. too and developed world too, but we must work together.

"We have Nancy Pelosi admitting the United States of America knows that they're not only committing [genocide], they're continuing to commit it. Which means, we've known for a while," Glenn noted. "And what does she say? She goes on to say, yes, they're committing genocide against the Uyghurs, but having said that, I'm quoting, 'the overriding issue,' is working together on climate change.

"Would we have worked with Hitler on climate change? Would we have worked with Hitler on developing the bomb? Would we have worked with Hitler on developing the Autobahn? Would we have worked with Hitler on his socialized medicine? Would we have worked with Hitler on any of his national, socialist ideas?" he asked.

"The answer is no. No. When you're committing genocide, no! She said 'we have to work together on climate,' because climate is the 'overriding issue.' The overriding issue? There is no way to describe this mindset. That, yes, they are killing an entire group of people because of their ethnicity or religion. They are systematically rounding them up, using them for slave labor, and killing them, using their organs and selling them on the open market. They are nothing more than cattle. For us to recognize it and do nothing about it is bad enough. But to say, 'we recognize it, but we have bigger things to talk to them about,' is a horror show."

Glenn went on to urge Americans to "stand up together in love, peace, and harmony," or risk watching our nation become the worst plague on human life yet.
