Whatever Happened to the 9/12 Project and What Is Happening Now?

The day after the worst terrorist attack to ever happen on American soil, the citizens of our great country were at their best, united in “common values and principles,” according to Glenn. Americans put aside their differences to stand together and help one another regardless of race, religion, or political views. It was this unprecedented unity and strength in the face of adversity that inspired the “9/12 Project.”

First launched in 2006, Glenn called his project “9/12” both to recall the “unity and togetherness” exhibited on that noteworthy date, and to represent “9 principles and 12 values” which he felt were at the heart of the movement.

Today on a special 9/12 anniversary show on TV, Glenn had this to say of the project:

“Now may be the time that the 9/12 Project would actually be more powerful than it ever was because, the thing that bothered me about the 9/12 Project is it kept becoming about politics. Because people couldn’t see the longer term vision and it seemed meaningless. The values and the principles seemed meaningless at the time, I think, to a lot of people. And it wasn’t. It was to prepare you for troubled times … and we’re here now. […] Now perhaps, the 9/12 project would have a chance to actually thrive.”

“It did thrive,” objected Stu Burguiere, who was part of the 9/12 Project during (among others) an August 28, 2010 rally in Washington, D.C. called “Restoring Honor” which attracted an estimated 500,000 attendees.

“You were standing on the set when we did the 9/12 Project,” Glenn said to Stu. “What did you take away? What did you see? What did you believe then and what do you believe now?”

Jason Whitlock: Raiders coach fired by NFL as a ‘SIGNAL’ to others

Raiders Head Coach Jon Gruden was forced to resign (fired) by the NFL on Monday due to 'misogynistic' and 'homophobic' language found in several of his old, private emails. But Jason Whitlock, sports writer and host of 'Fearless' on BlazeTV, tells Glenn that Gruden's words never should have resulted in his job lost: 'We should have accepted his apology and kept it moving.' But instead, Whitlock says the NFL chose to use Gruden as a 'signal' for all other employees who may oppose the football organization's current, far-left political stances: 'Taking over sports, taking over the NFL, is crucial to the goals of the left and what they're trying to do.'

How an ‘orchestrated’ revolution is bringing America TO ITS KNEES

Victor Davis Hanson, Senior Fellow at the Hoover Institution, joins Glenn to discuss his new book, 'The Dying Citizen.' He explains how America's hippies from the 1960s are the progressive elites running our institutions today and how their 'well orchestrated' moves have created a top-down revolution that's 'bringing us down to our knees.' So, what's the solution? Davis Hanson tells Glenn what we can do to push back against the far left today…

Who Is More Evil: Government or Facebook? | Robby Soave | Ep 120

The Left and Right agree: Social media companies like Facebook are abusing their power — whether through censorship or harmful, groupthink-creating algorithms. But is the solution really more censorship and regulation, like government fearmongers and leftist "whistleblowers" have insisted? Glenn sits down with the senior editor at Reason, Robby Soave, who has a much more refreshing solution laid out in his latest book, "Tech Panic: Why We Shouldn't Fear Facebook and the Future." Politicians have weaponized the fear we have about social media. So, maybe we should be looking at the positives. Glenn and Robby take a look at the (very familiar) history of tech panic and censorship, balance the consequences of changing Section 230, and expose the real threat to the future of free speech: Progressive tyranny entrenched in the old school media.

'HARMFUL CONTENT': How King Biden Is KILLING the Constitution

On "Glenn TV" tonight, Glenn Beck heads to the chalkboard to reveal how the fundamental transformation of America has already begun by turning the Declaration of Independence upside down.

If Donald Trump was a dictator, then what do we call President Biden? In Biden's first nine months in office, he has already issued 64 executive orders – that's more than Trump, Obama, W. Bush, Clinton, Bush, and Reagan each issued in their entire first years in office.

You never hear the Left talk about the Declaration of Independence, the Constitution, or the Bill of Rights any more, unless it's to "reimagine" the Constitution or slap a "harmful content" warning on our founding documents. Seriously. The National Archives said while its website label wasn't targeting the Constitution specifically, "some of the materials presented here may reflect outdated, biased, offensive, and possibly violent views and opinions." The Left finds basic, guaranteed rights so offensive they now spend all of their time on workarounds to deal with America's annoying founding documents.

Watch the full episode of "Glenn TV" below to see Glenn outline the aggressive unconstitutional abuses "King Biden" is jamming down our throats and teaches Americans how we can defend against presidential tyranny.
