    Edison didn't hold a light bulb to Tesla!

  • icyhotmike on June 13, 2022

    They're really going back in time… Another repeat

  • Kyle on June 13, 2022

  • Kandi on June 13, 2022

    God is great!

  • nesseiht gnay on June 13, 2022

    America has genius level intellect people, inventing nearly everything we see and use today in the world.

  • TK Skagen on June 13, 2022

    I'd love to see a video on the invention and evolution of WiFi!

  • Anthony Browne on June 13, 2022

    Black people built America and don't ever forget it.

  • Midnite Cro on June 13, 2022

    Edison was more of a sly thieving person of ideas than a creator/inventor.
    Don't believe what history books say. Remember how glorified Christopher Columbus is in these books? He was mass murdering psychopath that never discovered anything in reality and we had a day named after him for decades.
    History in school is a bunch of lies told from the perspective of racist murderers. Don't believe it.

    Also I have to add that Tesla discovered A/C not Edison.

  • Facts over Fear on June 13, 2022

    Fake news

  • Nitro Beloved on June 13, 2022

    You should literally change the title because they didn't build america lol

  • A A Ron on June 13, 2022

    Tesla invented free energy which is still hidden from us today.

  • Milan Stankovic on June 13, 2022

    Nikola had more knowledge under his fingernail than Edison had in his brain. Edison was a capitalist pig in for the bounty while Nikola was a genius . People know the truth.

  • Michael Morgan on June 13, 2022

    Edison was a hack. Tesla made free energy from the air. He died penniless and Edison took credit.

  • A A Ron on June 13, 2022

    How do you die in a carriage accident? Probably going a whopping 10 mph! 😂

  • Jeff Dorris  on June 13, 2022

    Lets go 💪

  • CWProduction DUKE on June 13, 2022

    Fun fact * Thomas Edison didn’t event the lights bulbs

  • IamSystemsbuster on June 13, 2022

    I like how these guys are not only portrayed as Genius's, but now they are tough guys too?

  • Jesse Dell Ross on June 13, 2022

    I remember going to Edison’s home. It’s a museum now of course and there were so many people. All the artifacts and stories of how great he was.

    No mention of Tesla anywhere.

  • A Rober on June 13, 2022

    Very good job fellows!!! Congratulations.
    America has genius level intellect people, inventing nearly everything we see and use today in the world.

  • Ameha K on June 13, 2022

    JP Morgan is the inspiration for the game Monopoly.

  • Alex Rajsel on June 13, 2022

    Tesla > Edison

  • Mr. Quindazzi on June 13, 2022

    Cool story, but the editing is awful- just slow moving repetition. I love this stuff but I barely got through it.

  • Lauren Thomas on June 13, 2022

    Two freaking geniuses mixed into one. How many more geniuses can be squeezed into one human? 😏🧐🤭👀📦

  • JOK3R on June 13, 2022

    Just proof that money buys you fame

  • Liberty on June 13, 2022

    Excellent video. Too bad Google's YouTube is so horrible with all their ads.
    Google sucks!!! YouTube sucks!!!

  • Roberta on June 13, 2022

    JP Morgan sucks… Imagine a world where Tesla was the name of everything not Edison

  • Elana * on June 13, 2022

    Nikola had so much light in him, exuberance , that many men just couldn't stand him. They stole his ideas, patents,etc. He deserves a statue like the liberty, his legacy deserves to be here on earth and space.

  • Hardhitta713 on June 13, 2022

    Now we know why we have to pay for energy lets go get them the whole bloodline

  • My Life on June 13, 2022

    AC>DC Tesla deserves history to be told correctly.

  • blue dream on June 13, 2022


  • Luke snare on June 13, 2022

    The men who built America are the same men who built the entire world the illuminati freemasons they are all one in the same and was and still is for the same purpose they started with, they built it for failure on purpose so that society will be completely and totally 100% dependent on them for literally everything so then when it all collapses by design they bring order out of chaos for their new world because the Phoenix will rise again because their is no God. The imaginary sky daddy everyone talks to isn't there and this is why society always loses and parishes and why "they" will always win.

  • Katie Lin on June 13, 2022

    this show didn't reveal how Rockefeller took over the pharmaceutical industry

  • John Ishee on June 13, 2022

    HISTORY must be desperate,

  • Rock Reynolds on June 13, 2022

  • Calla Lily - From California on June 13, 2022

  • A QE on June 14, 2022

    Please have a documentary about Mr Trololo, who revolutionized the concept of trolling as we know it.

  • Bo davis on June 14, 2022

    🤔 America was built on the backs of slaves.
