The 9/12 Movement: The Four-Part Series

The day after America was attacked, Americans were not obsessed with political parties and differences like skin color or religion. Following the devastating attacks on September 11, 2001, citizens united as Americans, standing together to protect the greatest nation ever created. The 9/12 movement is about bringing people back to that same feeling of togetherness and uniting on common values and principles.

The 9/12 Movement Part I: The Beginning

Virtually every serious problem the United States of America faces today can be traced to progressivism. Progressives infiltrated the government, corporations, entertainment and essentially took over American culture, eliminating God from the public square, education and public policy. As a result, morality has eroded, cities have decayed and the family unit has been weakened.

In 2008, one of the most progressive candidates and non-America-centric presidents in U.S. history promised just before the election to fundamentally transform the United States of America. As many Americans blindly cheered Obama's declaration, chills went down the spines of millions of others who understood exactly what he meant. Anyone who understood the implications made by the incoming president knew what was coming.

Following the election, many Americans felt hopeless, alone and angry. Glenn went on a mission to unite the millions who understood America's special place in history. He became obsessed with revitalizing conservative, constitutionally-minded Americans:

I know it's hard. I know you're tired. But I will prove it to you. You give me a couple of weeks, and I will find a way to prove it to you, that you are not alone, that there are more of us than them. You just don't hear from your kind of voice because nobody wants to give them any airtime. Because you're ordinary.

Weeks later, Glenn announced the birth of the 9/12 Project, a movement focused on bringing Americans back to the place they found themselves on September 12, 2001, the day after America was attacked. It was a day when political parties, skin color and religion didn't matter. A day when the only thing that mattered was being an American, united by common values and principles.

The 9/12 Movement Part II: 9 Principles and 12 Values

The day after 9/11, a day when nearly 3,000 of our loved ones and fellow Americans were slaughtered, no one had to tell Americans how to behave. The government didn't need to regulate our feelings and actions. Americans did what Americans do when the going gets tough: Lean on each other and God to make it through difficult times.

Following the 2008 election, Glenn called on his fellow citizens to unite and bring back that feeling of unity by launching the 9/12 Project. At the heart of the project were 9 principles and 12 values, the traits Glenn believes America exhibited the day after 9/11:

NINE PRINCIPLES

1. America is good.

2. I believe in God and He is the center of my life.

3. I must always try to be a more honest than I was yesterday.

4. The family is sacred. My spouse and I are the ultimate authority, not the government.

5. If you break the law, you pay the penalty. Justice is blind, and no one is above it.

6. I have a right to life, liberty, and pursuit of happiness, but there is no guarantee of equal results.

7. I work hard for what I have, and I will share it with who I want to. Government cannot force me to be charitable.

8. It is not un-American for me to disagree with authority or to share my personal opinion.

9. The government works for me. I do not answer to them: They answer to me.

TWELVE VALUES

1. Honesty

2. Reverence

3. Hope

4. Thrift

5. Humility

6. Charity

7. Sincerity

8. Moderation

9. Hard work

10. Courage

11. Personal responsibility

12. Gratitude

The 9/12 Movement Part III: Restoring Honor, Courage & Love

On August 28, 2010, slightly a year after Glenn launched the 9/12 Project, he and his staff organized a rally in Washington, D.C. called Restoring Honor. It was an attempt to bring God back into the public square. An estimated 500,000 people attended what was the largest gathering ever at the National Mall put together by a private citizen. A year later, Glenn and his staff traveled to Jerusalem for Restoring Courage. While there, Glenn spoke at the first ever gathering hosted by a Christian at the Temple Mount. And then, in 2012, in front of the largest crowd ever gathered for a spoken-word event at Dallas Cowboy Stadium, Glenn held Restoring Love.

All of these rallies --- Restoring Honor, Restoring Courage and Restoring Love --- had the primary objective to end divisiveness and bring Americans back together around the common principles and values established in the 9/12 Project.

The 9/12 Movement Part IV: The Four-Part Series

It's difficult to quantify the impact of the 9/12 Project, although there are definite tangibles. The movement produced the Black Robe Regiment, pastors and ministers all over the nation banding together to strengthen America's pulpit. With involvement from the 9/12 Project and the Tea Party, several great candidates were elected to Congress and Common Core was defeated in several states. Most importantly, Americans came together in support of common principles and values.

While initially unsure of how to begin the movement and what direction to take it in, Glenn's gut instinct told him that healing needed to occur and Americans needed to feel in control of their lives and connected to like-minded individuals. They needed to feel the way they did the day after 9/11. That instinct was confirmed when Glenn launched the 9/12 Project. There was a palpable, demonstrable sense of oneness, of Americans coming together for a common cause and taking action so they no longer felt alone and defeated.

On the radio program Monday, Glenn Beck, Pat Gray, and Stu Burguiere reacted to a recent Washington Post op-ed in which the author, Ron Charles, suggests that "as Confederate statues finally tumble across America, [and] television networks are marching through their catalogues looking to take down racially offensive content," perhaps the next items that should be up on the cancel-culture chopping block are "problematic books."

"Monuments celebrating racist traitors, which were erected to fabricate history and terrify black Americans, are not works of art that deserve our respect or preservation. Similarly, scenes of modern-day white comedians reenacting minstrel-show caricatures are not ironical interrogations of racism that we have to stomach any longer. But complex works of literature are large, they contain multitudes," Charles wrote.

He goes on to argue that "calibrating our Racism Detector to spot only a few obvious sins" is but an insidious source of self-satisfaction when compared to the process of critical debate on the values and intentions of history's literary legends.

"If cancel culture has a weakness, it's that it risks short-circuiting the process of critical engagement that leads to our enlightenment," Charles wrote. "Scanning videos for blackface or searching text files for the n-word is so much easier than contending with, say, the systemic tokenism of TV rom-coms or the unbearable whiteness of Jane Austen."

Could cancel culture really spiral all the way down to book burning? In the clip below, Glenn, Pat, and Stu agreed that this radical progressive movement is really about erasing America's history and overturning the foundation of our country. The fundamental transformation of America is happening now.

"Restoring Hope" has been a labor of love for Glenn and his team and tonight is the night! "Restoring the Covenant" was supposed to take place in Boston, New York, Philadelphia, Gettysburg and Washington D.C. but thanks to COVID-19, that plan had to be scrapped. "Restoring Hope" is what was left after having to scrap nearly two years of planning. The Herald Journal in Idaho detailed what the event was supposed to be and what it turned into. Check out the article below to get all the details.

Glenn Beck discusses patriotic, religious program filmed at Idaho ranch

On July 2, commentator Glenn Beck and his partners will issue a challenge from Beck's corner of Franklin County to anyone who will listen: "Learn the truth, commit to the truth, then act on the truth."

Over the last few weeks, he has brought about 1,000 people to his ranch to record different portions of the program that accompanies the challenge. On June 19, about 400 members of the Millennial Choir and Orchestra met at West Side High School before boarding WSSD buses to travel to a still spring-green section of Beck's ranch to record their portion of the program.

The current riots and movement to erase America's history are exactly in line with the New York Times' "1619 Project," which argues that America was rotten at its beginning, and that slavery and systemic racism are the roots of everything from capitalism to our lack of universal health care.

On this week's Wednesday night special, Glenn Beck exposed the true intent of the "1619 Project" and its creator, who justifies remaking America into a Marxist society. This clever lie is disguised as history, and it has already infiltrated our schools.

"The '1619 Project' desperately wants to pass itself off as legitimate history, but it totally kneecaps itself by ignoring so much of the American story. There's no mention of any black Americans who succeeded in spite of slavery, due to the free market capitalist system. In the 1619 Project's effort to take down America, black success stories are not allowed. Because they don't fit with the narrative. The role of white Americans in abolishing slavery doesn't fit the narrative either," Glenn said.

"The agenda is not ultimately about history," he added. "It's just yet another vehicle in the fleet now driven by elites in America toward socialism."
