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.

Political commentator Bill O'Reilly joined the Glenn Beck radio program on Friday made an important prediction about President Joe Biden's chance of reelection in 2024.

O'Reilly told Glenn that former President Donald Trump was brought down because of COVID. "if COVID had not appeared, O'Reilly stated, "he [Trump] would have won reelection."

O'Reilly went on to predict that like Trump, President Joe Biden would lose reelection because of COVID. People saw a president who could not put out an intelligent fact-based message about COVID and people will remember that," he explained.

O'Reilly later added that "Trump and Biden are one-termers because of COVID."

Critical race theory: Marxism is a religion

Marx didn't actually tell his followers that the system needed to be destroyed. And it's not what Marx actually believed. Very few Marxists actually understand what Marx laid out.

Marxism isn't a list of demands and instructions. It's Marx's attempt to tell the future. Some of it he got right, most he got wrong. For example, he predicted the rise of automation.

Believe it or not, Marx was not an anti-capitalist. If anything, he revered it.

In a letter to Engels, he complained that too many people misunderstood his message, that his plan is to merge with capitalism. To make it new. He wanted to reify his brand of socialism, reify is a Marxist term, actually. It basically means to make an abstract idea concrete.

Marx didn't hate capitalism. He actually thought it was necessary. And he knew communism would never happen without the aid of capitalism.

Marx didn't hate capitalism. He actually thought it was necessary.

From there, he takes these ideas to some weird conclusions. Horrible conclusions. The main one being revolution.

What does the first phase of the Marxist revolution look like? How will we know if it has started? How can we tell if it's already begun? Marx's idea of the "dictatorship of the proletariat," where the working class would rise up in revolution and earn their freedom.

But what did Marx mean by freedom? Like so much of Marxism, it involves giving up your individuality, in service to the collective: "Only in community with others does each individual have the means of cultivating his gifts in all directions; only in the community, therefore, is personal freedom possible."

That's from his book The German Ideology, which he co-wrote with Friedrich Engels, the guy who paid all of his bills: "Free competition, which is based on the idea of individual freedom, simply amounts to the relation of capital to itself as another capital."

His idea here is that capital ruins any idea of freedom or individuality. And competition is what he uses as proof. In other words, Marx's definition of freedom has nothing to do with actual freedom, freedom as we know it.

He wrote, in Capital: "It is not individuals who are set free by free competition; it is, rather, capital which is set free."

He's saying that Capital manipulates our individual freedom and forces us to exploit ourselves. For someone who didn't believe in God, he sure had some fanciful ideas about the forces that control the universe.

For someone who didn't believe in God, he sure had some fanciful ideas about the forces that control the universe.

Marxists have always argued that capitalism is a religion. That our debt to capital is no different than our debt to God. Critical Theorist Walter Benjamin wrote an entire book called Capitalism as Religion, and wrote that capitalism is "the first case of a cult that creates guilt, not atonement."

There were many strains of socialism before Marx. There were entire movements, named after socialist and anarchist philosophers. But Marx was the one who figured it out, with the help of a rotating cast of people paying for his sloth, of course.

Marx's influence on socialism was so profound that socialism was practically re-named in honor of Marx. Marx has been deified.

He created a utopian society. Very hypothetical. It requires a working class that is devoted to daily readings of The Communist Manifesto.

This assumes that people who work all day — at a real job, where they can't just sit on the couch all day as Marx did — even have the energy to read dense theory when they get home.

Marx made a religion.

This post is part of a series on critical race theory. Read the full series here.

The Capitol riot was foolish and tragic, but Pelosi's Select Committee "investigation" on the January 6 "insurrection" has devolved into a show trial complete with bad tears and bad acting. But this is just a charade designed to distract us.

What's going on behind closed doors is truly nefarious. The Biden White House and the U.S. national security apparatus are seizing that event to redefine domestic terrorism and expand the powers of government to prevent it. There is an alarming blueprint for sweeping government action called the "National Strategy for Countering Domestic Terrorism," put together by the National Security Council.

On his Wednesday night special this week, Glenn Beck exposes the collusion between the Biden administration and Big Tech to surveil, root out, and silence America's deplorables – all in the name of national security.

Terry Trobiani owns Gianelli's Drive Thru in Prairie Grove, Illinois, where he put up a row of American flags for the Fourth of July. But the city claimed he was displaying two of them improperly and issued him a $100 ticket for each flag.

Terry joined Glenn Beck on the radio program Tuesday to explain what he believes really happened. He told Glenn that, according to city ordinance, the American flag is considered "ornamental" and should therefore have been permitted on a federal holiday. But the city has now classified the flag as a "sign."

"Apparently, the village of Prairie Grove has classified the American flag as a sign and they've taken away the symbol of the American flag," Terry said. "So, as a sign, it falls under their temporary sign ordinance, which prohibits any flying, or any positioning of signs on your property — and now this includes the American flag. [...] The only way I could fly the American flag on my property is if I put it on a permanent 20 to 30-foot flagpole, which they have to permit."

Terry went on to explain how the city is now demanding an apology for his actions, and all after more than a year of small-business crushing COVID restrictions and government mandates.

"COVID was tough," Terry stated. "You know, we're in the restaurant business. COVID was tough on us. We succeeded. We made it through. We cut a lot of things, but we never cut an employee. We paid all our employees. I didn't take a paycheck for a year just to keep our employees on, because it was that important to me to keep things going. And, you know, you fight for a year, and you beat a pandemic, and then you have this little municipality with five trustees and a president, who just have no respect for small businesses. And right now, what I see is they have no respect for the republic and the United States ... I think it's terrible. The direction that government, at all levels, have taken us to this point, it's despicable."
