How has the 9/12 Project changed your life? Amazing responses from people across the country

Tonight, Glenn will present an evening of programming to commemorate the 5-year anniversary of the 9/12 Project. To help celebrate, we asked listeners and viewers across the country to send in some of their stories and how the 9/12 Project impacted their life. You'll hear plenty tonight on TheBlaze TV, but here are some of our favorites.

Jan: I have met some really wonderful, like-minded individuals, in and near my own community. It has given my husband and me a renewed sense of purpose and a way to express our beliefs.

Angela: At that original march in Washington, I met some fellow Tallahassee 912'ers. They have become some of my best friends. We even went & got matching 9.12 tattoos two years ago (to represent the date of that first rally & when we all met, as well as what 9.12 stands for). We were from different walks of life: Matt is an engineer with a big firm, I'm a small business owner (private investigations firm - 5 employees), Jerome a college student (at the time). I'm a white female, Jerome a black male, & Matt a white male. Matt & I were in our early 30's, Jerome in his early 20's. On the outside we might not look like we "went together," but on the inside we were kindred spirits. We have the same belief system, the same moral compass, & the same desire to see this great Country get back on track.

Jeffery: The 9/12 group that we're a part of really turned us around. Our first meeting was on disaster/emergency preparedness, and there were probably 30 people there. We sat in the back, afraid to ask questions (for fear that everyone else in the room would judge us). By the end of the meeting, we had met a dozen or so other members who we're still very good friends with and wow... suddenly we felt a part of something. I don't think it's an exaggeration to say that the 9/12 Project changed our life.

Leah: I came up with a group called "Kids Who Care". I have planned service projects for the kids in the community to come participate in. The catch is the kids have to first, WORK and earn money. They can do chores, a bake sale, scoop poop for the neighbors, whatever they can do to earn some money. Then they DONATE the money for all the supplies. Our service project have varied. We have made goodie bags for kids in the hospital a few times. We have decorated a flower pot and then planted a flower in it and delivered to a care home for the elderly. We earned $350 (which is pretty good for kids earning the money) to donate to a boy who has disabilities and needed to buy a $10,000 service dog. Plus several other service projects. It has been an amazing experience and my kids who are only 8, 6 and 3 have been able to see how hard work and giving is so important. I know this isn't exactly the 9/12 project, but that is what inspired me to do something similar on a kid level.

Molly: My husband and I have made preparations to provide for our family and hopefully a few others in need. I am courageous. I am not afraid. I know that God is with me always, wherever I may go.

Jackie: My husband says I came back from DC a changed person. My language, my patience and my attitude improved significantly. And when I talk about the love and giving that was there that day, my eyes light up…. Even though I flew there alone, I found immediate acceptance into a family of new friends.

Colleen: After the start of the 9/12 project I realized there were many just like myself… My husband and I attended the Restoring Honor Rally. We traveled from Wyoming to D.C. for the first time in our lives. We met some of the most wonderful people who we remain in contact with.

Eric Weinstein, managing director of investment firm Thiel Capital and host of "The Portal" podcast, is not a conservative, but he says conservative and center-right-affiliated media are the only ones who will still allow oppositional voices.

On "The Glenn Beck Podcast" this week, Eric told Glenn that the center-left media, which "controls the official version of events for the country," once welcomed him, but that all changed about eight years ago when they started avoiding any kind of criticism by branding those who disagree with them as "alt-right, far-right, neo-Nazi, etc.," even if they are coming from the left side of the aisle. But their efforts to discredit critical opinions don't stop there. According to Eric, there is a strategy being employed to destroy our national culture and make sure Americans with opposing views do not come together.

"We're trifling with the disillusionment of our national culture. And our national culture is what animates the country. If we lose the culture, the documents will not save us," Eric said. "I have a very strongly strategic perspective, which is that you save things up for an emergency. Well, we're there now."

In the clip below, Eric explains why, after many requests over the last few years, he finally agreed to this podcast.

Glenn Beck: Why MLK's pledge of NONVIOLENCE is the key to saving America

Listen to the Rev. Dr. Martin Luther King Jr.'s pledge of nonviolence and really let it sink in: "Remember always that the nonviolent movement seeks justice and reconciliation — not victory."

On the radio program, Glenn Beck shared King's "ten commandments" of nonviolence and the meaning behind the powerful words you may never have noticed before.

"People will say nonviolent resistance is a method of cowards. It is not. It takes more courage to stand there when people are threatening you," Glenn said. "You're not necessarily the one who is going to win. You may lose. But you are standing up with courage for the ideas that you espouse. And the minute you engage in the kind of activity that the other side is engaging in, you discredit the movement. You discredit everything we believe in."

Take MLK's words to heart, America. We must stand with courage, nonviolently, with love for all, and strive for peace and rule of law, not "winning."

Conservatives are between a rock and a hard place with Section 230 and Big Tech censorship. We don't want more government regulation, but have we moved beyond the ability of Section 230 reforms to rein in Big Tech's rising power?

Rachel Bovard, Conservative Partnership Institute's senior director of policy, joined the Glenn Beck radio program to give her thoughts and propose a possibly bipartisan alternative: enforcing our existing antitrust laws.

Dan Bongino, host of The Dan Bongino Show, is an investor in Parler — the social media platform that actually believes in free speech. Parler was attacked by Big Tech — namely Amazon, Apple, and Google — earlier this week, but Bongino says the company isn't giving up without a fight. In fact, he says, he's willing to go bankrupt over this one.

Dan joined Glenn Beck on the radio program to detail what he calls a "smear" campaign behind the scenes, and how he believes we can move forward from Big Tech's control.

"You have no idea how bad this was behind the scenes," Dan told Glenn. "I know you're probably thinking ... well, how much worse can the attack on Parler have gotten than three trillion-dollar companies — Amazon, Apple, and Google — all seemingly coordinated to remove your business from the face of the Earth? Well, behind the scenes, it's even worse. I mean, there are smear campaigns, pressure campaigns ... lawyers, bankers, everyone, to get this company ... wiped from the face of the earth. It's incredible."

Dan emphasized that he would not give up without a fight, because what's he's really fighting for is the right to free speech for all Americans, regardless of their political opinions, without fear of being banned, blacklisted, or losing jobs and businesses.

"I will go bankrupt. I will go absolutely destitute before I let this go," he said. "I have had some very scary moments in my life and they put horse blinders on me. I know what matters now. It's not money. It's not houses. It's none of that crap. It's this: the ability to exist in a free country, where you can express your ideas freely."
