Jefferson Lies, the Founding Fathers, and Academic Elites

David Barton, Founder and President of Wallbuilders, America’s historian, political activist, and frequent television commentator, and Dave Garrison, host of the Faith & Liberty Talk Show, and former U.S. Congressional candidate, discuss David Barton’s recent book, Jefferson Lies: Exposing the Myths You’ve Always Believed About Thomas Jefferson and the response of academic elites. Additionally, David and Dave also discuss the biblical principles of government and the founding of this nation along with a host of related topics. David Barton has been called by one major news source as “America’s Historian” and by another one of the top 25 evangelicals in America. David Barton has written many New York Times bestselling books and a regular guest on the Glenn Beck Show and Fox News.

“…Thomas Jefferson and the other Founding Fathers always understood that separation of church and state was to limit the government from interfering from religious expression and not the other way around.”
