The 9-12 Project website

GLENN: A GlennBeck.com update.

VOICE: Do you want to stop playing a game? No more partisan politics, just common sense. This is the 9/12 Project.

GLENN: Well, the Web traffic is an onslaught on The9/12Project.com. A lot of 9/12ers now. Our special interest group is now 162,652 strong, and it's growing every day. 95% of the traffic is coming from the U.S. and Canada. We do get Web traffic now from 123 different countries, and France actually has 74 people checking it out. Oh, the nerve, huh? Aside from the ground swell of local groups starting to form, there is much concern regarding a couple of bills and we are going to look into them for you. And Stu, can you make sure everybody knows that I want to have answers on this on Monday's show. H.R. 875 and H.R. 1388. One is the national service law which, there's a lot of stuff going around the Internet saying they are going to force people to volunteer their time and stuff. Don't buy into this stuff until we know for sure. I will give you the full detail on it on Monday. Then there's also the Food Safety Modernization Act. I mean, who doesn't want food saf! e and modern? But apparently this one has -- there's a lot of farmers that are upset about this one because there are seed laws. And I told you about genetic seeds. Look, there's a lot of great stuff about hybrid foods, but there's also a lot of really, really bad stuff about hybrid foods and here's the bad stuff. Because it costs, for instance, Dow Chemical a lot to make a hybrid plant and it does give a lot more corn let's say, you know, per acre, because it costs so much money, it doesn't reproduce because Dow needed to find a way to make sure that you couldn't just buy seeds once; you had to buy them every year to pay for all of the research to make the corn like this. Well, the other problem with it is that it doesn't reproduce; when you cross-pollenate, it kills the reproductive cycles of the other corn that is heirloom corn, you know, the natural "Not screwed up by man" kind of corn. Well, this bill apparently has some things to do with buying genetic seeds! and everything else and what you have to do, and I'm telling you, you know, I believe in genetic food. I believe in making sure that we can grow as much food on each crop, but I certainly don't believe in forcing people to use that, and there should be zones to keep that kind of food from cross-pollenating with the other kind of food. What farmer is with me?

So anyway, we'll find out all the details on all of these here coming up.

There is a digital tea party happening and more information is coming, I guess on the website. A national clog Washington day. The 9/12ers are saying great idea about the tea bags. Don't mail them into Washington, though. Instead of mailing the actual tea bag, take a photo of one and send it in or empty the tea bag and send it in. If you do anything in an envelope, they are not going to see I. If you send it on their servers, they will see it. You clog their servers and they will see that. They will get the message that there's a lot of people there. The post office must deliver the mail, no weird substance in it, though. Actually since 9/11 the mail doesn't go -- it's going to be a bunch of people off site in a warehouse in Virginia that actually sees everything.

Also July 4th, 2009, surround your state capitols. The mall in D.C. and so on. Marchforliberty.org has been on our website at the912Project.com. Also April there is the Second Amendment Martha people are trying to put together. And I wanted to leave you with this one letter that came in. Said, dear 9/12ers, I'm a 52-year-old African-American who was a staunch Democrat until President Bush gave his speech after 9/11. He won my heart and my mind on that evening and I still get choked up whenever I remember his inspired words. He spent the rest of his presidency keeping those promises to us, whether or not it was popular. I hope he goes down as one of our greatest presidents in history. Now you see the Democrats attempt to destroy the morals and work ethic of our great country breaks my heart and strengthens my resolve to fight for the greatness of our history and the will of most of our citizens. I want to express a deep gratitude to all those who will come tog! ether. You know what? This comes from Las Vegas, and I think -- I appreciate the sentiment of this letter, but I want you to know the 9/12 Project is not about Republicans and Democrats. And while George Bush, while he kept us safe, he really did at least from Islamic terror, there were also some other things that he did that were really not so good that we're paying for today. Let's stop those things. Let's stop arguing about the Republicans and the Democrats. Let's stop tearing George Bush apart or putting him on a pedestal. Let's stop doing the same thing to Barack Obama. Let's talk about the principles that built this nation. Let's talk about the principles that when they're rediscovered and applied every day by individuals in this country, we will then know who to vote for and who to give our power to in Washington because we'll know and they'll know. They'll stand for those twelve values and those nine principles that make most of us, whether we know it or n! ot, a 9/12er.

VOICE: Do you want to stop playing a game? It's our country. Be part of standing up and taking it back. This is the 9/12 Project. Visit the912project.com for more.

TRUMP: The twilight hour of socialism has arrived

Joe Raedle/Getty Images

The other day, at Florida International University in Miami, facing large American and Venezuelan flags, President Trump gave a rousing speech in Miami, including this line, the "twilight hour of socialism has arrived."

Trump went on to say:

Socialism is about one thing only—power for the ruling class. They want the power to decide who wins and who loses, who's up and who's down…and even who lives and who dies.

He then repeated a phrase that helped define his State of the Union address this year:

America will never be a socialist country.

Fittingly, Fox News posted an article yesterday exposing the overlooked evils of Che dangers of socialism that all too often disappear behind a flashy design on a t-shirt.

  1. Guevara said he killed people without regard to guilt or innocence. In an interview, Guevara said, "in times of excessive tension we cannot proceed weakly. At the Sierra Maestra, we executed many people by firing squad without knowing if they were fully guilty. At times, the Revolution cannot stop to conduct much investigation; it has the obligation to triumph."
  2. Humberto Fontova, author of "Exposing the Real Che Guevara," told Fox that Guevara created system that put gay people in labor camps. "The regime that Che Guevara co-founded is the only one in modern history in the Western Hemisphere to have herded gays into forced labor camps."
  3. Guevara opposed a free press: "In 1959, leftist journalist José Pardo Llada reported that Guevara told him: 'We must eliminate all newspapers; we cannot make a revolution with free press. Newspapers are instruments of the oligarchy.'"
  4. Guevara made racist statements: Guevara went on to write: "the black is indolent and a dreamer; spending his meager wage on frivolity or drink; the European has a tradition of work and saving."

These are just some of the many historical examples of the failure of socialism. President Trump is right. If the frivolities of Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez and Bernie Saunders catch on and spread, we could have an unbelievable problem on our hands.

Poor Jussie: His narrative is falling apart completely

Tasia Wells/Getty Images for Espolòn

Here's how the media works now: Find a story that confirms their narrative, run it constantly and relentlessly. When the real story comes out, minimize exposure of the correction. Repeat.

We're seeing this pattern play out over and over again.

Here are some of the knee-jerk reactions that the media had to this Jessie Smollett hoax, from Insider Edition, CNN, E! News, Headline News, CNBC, TMZ, to name a few:


Montage: Watch the Media Uncritically Accept Another Outlandish 'Hate Crime' youtu.be


And those are just the reactions on TV. It was just as bad, at times worse, in print and online. I'll give you one special example, however. Because, you know the situation is bad when TMZ is connecting the dots and seeing through this guy's story:

The sources say there were red flags from the get go. Cops were extremely suspicious when Jussie took them out to the area where he said he was attacked and pointed to an obscure camera saying how happy he was that the attack was on video. Turns out the camera was pointing in the wrong direction. Cops thought it was weird he knew the location of that camera. And there's this. We're told investigators didn't believe the 2 alleged attackers screamed 'This is MAGA country' because 'Not a single Trump supporter watches 'Empire.''

Here's the man himself, in an interview just days after the alleged beating…I'm sorry, the alleged "modern day lynching." Here he is in an interview with ABC News, complaining about people making up stuff:



Strong words, spoken by a man who, allegedly, created the whole narrative to begin with.

This compromise is an abomination

Zach Gibson/Getty Images

Three decades ago, "The Art of the Deal" made Donald Trump a household name. A lot has happened since then. But you can trace many of Trump's actions back to that book.

Art of the Deal:

In the end, you're measured not by how much you undertake but by what you finally accomplish.

People laughed when he announced that he was running for President. And I mean that literally. Remember the 2011 White House Correspondents' Dinner when Obama roasted Trump, viciously, mocking the very idea that Trump could ever be President. Now, he's President.

You can't con people, at least not for long. You can create excitement, you can do wonderful promotion and get all kinds of press, and you can throw in a little hyperbole. But if you don't deliver the goods, people will eventually catch on.

This empire-building is a mark of Trump.

RELATED: 'Arrogant fool' Jim Acosta exposed MSM's dishonest border agenda — again.

The most recent example is the border wall. Yesterday, congress reached a compromise on funding for the border wall. Weeks of tense back-and-forth built up to that moment. At times, it seemed like neither side would budge. Trump stuck to his guns, the government shut down, Trump refused to budge, then, miraculously, the lights came back on again. The result was a compromise. Or at least that's how it appeared.

But really, Trump got what he wanted -- exactly what he wanted. He used the techniques he wrote about in The Art of the Deal:

My style of deal-making is quite simple and straightforward. I aim very high, and then I just keep pushing and pushing and pushing to get what I'm after.

From the start, he demanded $5.7 billion for construction of a border wall. It was a months' long tug-of-war that eventually resulted in yesterday's legislation, which would dedicate $1.4 billion. It would appear that that was what he was after all along. Moments before the vote, he did some last-minute pushing. A national emergency declaration, and suddenly the number is $8 billion.

Art of the Deal:

People think I'm a gambler. I've never gambled in my life. To me, a gambler is someone who plays slot machines. I prefer to own slot machines. It's a very good business being the house.

In a rare show of bipartisanship, Senate passed the legislation 83-16, and the House followed with 300-128. Today, Trump will sign the bill.

It's not even fair to call that a deal, really. A deal is what happens when you go to a car dealership, fully ready to buy a car, and the salesman says the right things. What Trump did is more like a car dealer selling an entire row of cars to someone who doesn't even have a licence. When Trump started, Democrats wouldn't even consider a wall, let alone pay for it.

Art of the Deal:

The final key to the way I promote is bravado. I play to people's fantasies. People may not always think big themselves, but they can still get very excited by those who do. That's why a little hyperbole never hurts. People want to believe that something is the biggest and the greatest and the most spectacular. I call it truthful hyperbole. It's an innocent form of exaggeration—and a very effective form of promotion.

He started the wall on a chant, "Build the wall!" until he got what he wanted. He maneuvered like Don Draper, selling people something that they didn't even know they wanted, and convincing them that it is exactly what they've always needed.
