Labor Day Message: WE built this!

Hello America,

We’re coming to the end of one of the most crucial summers of our lifetime. Over the past few months, we’ve committed, we’ve activated, we’ve lived it, and we’ve created. We’re now in the final push to the election, and I believe that we are going to finally get some leadership in Washington that will be more focused on empowering individuals to find solutions rather than regulating the country into oblivion.

And I, along with the team at TheBlaze, are going to be with you every step of the way!

Last week, the Real News team was down in Tampa providing exclusive coverage for TheBlaze TV (formerly GBTV) viewers – and that was just the beginning. From now until the election, TheBlaze is going to bring you the truth on what is going on in the presidential race, without any of the political bias that you see in the mainstream media.

As part of our growing network, we’re adding a new show hosted by Andrew Wilkow that will premiere on September 10th onTheBlaze TV. Available for PLUS subscribers, Wilkow! will bring the popular Sirius XM radio host into primetime, and he’ll be the latest voice to bring you the stories and the opinions that you just can’t find in the mainstream media.

The same week that we premiere Wilkow!, I’m going to be joining my partners at Freedomworks for our FreePac Bootcamp in Cincinnati, Ohio on Sepetember 15th. At the event, I’ll unveil a historic project that will launch the future of the movement for freedom.  I’ll be speaking, along with FreedomWorks President Matt Kibbe, Deneen Borelli, and CL Bryant – and giving you the first look at a powerful new tool that will empower you to take action beyond the voting booth.

You and I both know that the problems facing our country aren’t going to change over night. In November, we’re simply removing the problem of progressive big government. But starting in January, it’s going to be up to us – ALL of us – to work together to help our fellow man now that we’ve told the politicians to stay away.

One of the reasons I created TheBlaze, the network that YOU are building, was to provide a platform for you to be empowered. It’s not just a news site or video streaming network – it’s a place where you can connect with likeminded people to recharge and get the tools you need to create change in the world. With each day, we take more and more steps to build the company with that one goal in mind. And one of the ways we are trying to empower individuals across the country is through The Marketplace, an e-commerce site dedicated to supporting entrepreneurs throughout America by bringing great small businesses to a larger national platform.

Over the next few weeks on TheBlaze, you’ll see many of their stories as they respond to perhaps the biggest slam against the American Dream – “You didn’t build that”.

This is where President Obama differs from most of us across the country who do believe in the American Dream. When he says, “You didn’t build that,” he’s saying you needed help from the government to achieve your success. When I think of “You didn’t build that”, I think of all of you who are out there spending your hard earned money on businesses and charities that YOU believe in. You don’t need the government to decide who succeeds and fails – you make those decisions with your dollars.

On this Labor Day, I’d like to thank each and every one of you for helping me build my company over the past decade. Because of your trust and your confidence and your support – I’ve been able to take some of my wildest dreams and turn them into a reality. I truly hope that you find value in the things that my team and I are sending out into the world.

While I could have (and did) do it without big government – I couldn’t have built all of this without YOU.

God Bless,

    America has been built by WE the PEOPLE, with our hands and hearts, our sweat and tears, our toil and trials; yet we have made it happen, by the individual, family, kin and community in all areas of the land.

    The Constitution holds a key phrase: “…To make a more perfect union…”

    So it is in an land of exceptional people we strive for that day by day; to improve and make it a better place for the generations to come. Yet we have forgotten as well until just in the last few years, the exceptional land and being and exceptional people has a price: eternal vigilance and stewardship of the laws and Constitution that allows for it to be possible.

    Having nearly lost these liberties we will have to labor and bear pain of undoing the damage done; and then rebuild again what should have been instead of what it became.

    This November we tell the extremists, radicals, communists, socialists, and anarchists that their day is done; we are taking the nation back and will not allow her to go into the night.

    God be with you all and after the Nov 6th election; as when Obama loses, his wrath will be unmitigated upon the people and the nation.

    God bless you too Glenn! We love <3 <3 <3 you!

    You know you lose all credibilty when you base your point off of a lie. You know good and damn well Glenn that the “You didn’t build that” line is total BS. You know that was clever Fox News editing. 

    But you all still give this fraud and hustler your every month. You guys deserve the ass whipping you are going to get this November. 

  • Debbie C

    Thanks Glenn for having a voice of truth for those that seek it. Jesus bless, Love you, Debbie
    Keep the faith, keep looking up and never give up on the power of the Holy Ghost!!

    Thank you Mr. Beck!!! When I stop and think of just how much we have accomplished already, and how much we have been aching and devouring our history and heritage since the beginning of the 9/12 project those few years ago, I almost cannot believe just how far we have come. I am so grateful and inspired by the courage and compassion I have witnessed at the hands of my fellow countrymen. Thank you for being our Paul Revere, our Thomas Paine, our George Washington, and thank you for leading the way for this next generations young George Washington. God Bless you sir, and God Bless America!!!

    I saw it too, on another network.  I re-ran the video, in it’s full context, 3 different times because I couldn’t believe the words coming out of BHO’s mouth!  “There is no way he just said that!” I thought.  But, each time I watched, it became more and more clear that our president is taking credit for the hard work of entrepreneurs nationwide.  Just because a road exists doesn’t mean a trucking or logistics company will magically appear.  Just because the internet exists doesn’t mean a site like Facebook will magically pop-up.  It takes ideas, money, risk, and tons of hard work.  That will NEVER come from the gov’t.  If you’ve built a small business, you understand that.  If you’ve only read about business and free markets, like BHO, you’ll never fully get it.

    So Glenn built the internet all by himself, with no help from the government?  OK!!!!

    So when I was watching it live it was being edited? On the pipe a little early are we….

    Mornin’ GR!

    Man, it’s becoming crazy out here. These morons are trying every trick in the book to not only discredit Romney, but all of us…..and that includes lies that they refuse to prove.

  • General_Relativity

    I’ve come to expect that is all the left can do.

  • Anonymous

    This Romney tax issue is nothing but a smokescreen.

    F&F was exposed for what it was, along with 300 + deaths, and almost immediately Romney’s tax returns became an issue, and that’s why this corrupt administration needs to be ousted…..and that’s not even enough.

    The entire dem party of regressive treasonous slime needs to be outed for what it is.

  • General_Relativity

    Now that you have mentioned it, Romney’s tax issue came up around the same time when more and more people are demanding the admin to release information about F&F.

  • Anonymous

    F&F was exposed before the tax issue came into play. Next, the regressives will lie about that, no doubt.

    They have a cover for everything, but we can’t allow them to get away with it.

    This morning….I wasn’t allowing them to get away with it, and one of them started with the anti-Semite accusations.
    He couldn’t/wouldn’t prove it, but he had to do something.

    The roads and all you speak were paid for by we the taxpayers…the government has no money save what collects from US….So YES we did build that!

    God forbid if strtlk mentions that if it was not for rich people’s money like Glenn’s money there would be no government giving money to adio,tv,etc. What a lemming!

    I watched it live to strtlk just loves to eat DMC propaganda without using something in his head called a brain. They know that he meant it that is why they push hard to fight these words. Even in context it still means that government made business and not the other way around. We the people created the government to build the roads and fight our enemies that want to do us harm not the other way around but this is how stupid liberal logic is.

  • http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=EHETWQlwxfg&feature=share&list=PL5FABE780A13D231D Rahm Kota

    Dumb ass I watch it live and even in context it sounds as
    bad as it does out of context. Gee moron worship your god Obama somewhere else
    and don’t come back here until you realize that living in Obama’s rear is not
    good for your health and is cutting oxygen from that pea brain of yours. Shouldn’t
    you be in school right now little girl?

    I Tweeted this comment and am not sure I am doing this correctly. I have not bloged before but felt a need to express my thoughts.
    I am a flight attendant for another airline.  This airline is currently in ‘talks’ with American Airlines regarding a potential merger.  I am in fear of having to possibly work with their flight attendants because I was aware of their liberal attitudes, but not to the extend of what you experienced.  I do not back down to the ‘liberal left’ when I encounter their rath, but I have tooth marks on my tongue from bitting it often when listening to passengers and other flight attendant’s rhetoric. I am sooo sorry you experienced the unprofessionalism of these AA flight attendants.  No one, and most of all, YOU and your wife, of all people, do not deserve this kind of treatment!!

    Dragging us ALL into a socialist nation is not where we want to go . If you beleive  bo’s bs go to greece for a long stay and get back to us later, much later.

    You need to listen to the speech and  I beleive he did say ” You didn’t build that”. He said we had help oh yea because the roads were there and the gov. was there, but I think thr gov. was there for their hand out as soon as the business was profitable.

    “Thank you for being our Paul Revere, our Thomas Paine, our George Washington, and thank you for leading the way for this next generations young George Washington”— hilarious

    dude- he’s a tv talking head without an audience.
    get a grip man!

  • http://twitter.com/Bwana86 Bwana86

    yes- because only “rich people” pay taxes !!

  • http://twitter.com/Bwana86 Bwana86

    yes- it was the “government” that DID build those roads and bridges

  • http://twitter.com/Bwana86 Bwana86

    yeah thats not accurate. maybe you should read the transcript?
    that might help

  • http://twitter.com/Bwana86 Bwana86

    and when you saw it live (if you were paying attention) you CLEARLY heard him refer to roads and bridges.

    of course that was before the Rove Attack Squad told you what to think and say in retrospect….

    but congrats on being a good little blind foot soldier

    Hey Bwana- You mean the guy who just FILLED Dallas stadium in the name of love, and charity? You mean the guy who gathered and organized the largest non tragedy charity event in HISTORY??? Yeah, LOL, sure fits the description of a man with no audience that shouldn’t be admired. Its okay though, I understand why you might be so angry, and hateful. PLEASE go research Edward Bernays and when your ready to do some good in the world and practice LOVE instead of hate, my friends and this true American movement will be here waiting to except you with kindness and open arms. God Bless you sir, have a great day. ;) :)
