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.

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. Stores like Walmart and Target were allowed to stay open during the lockdown, but mom-and-pop stores on Main Street had to close, some of them forever.

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."
