Glenn Beck: 9/12 Project Update - Over 250,000 members and counting...

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

GLENN: I asked yesterday to please go on, and you'll see, and I want to change the name of this. Could you ask somebody, could you ask Michael to change the name of this on the button bar? Glenn's wish list? It shouldn't be Glenn's wish list. It should be America's wish list, your wish list. I want I asked you yesterday. I want you to come up with a list of things you want changed, a list of, you know, the contract for America. You know, let's stop waiting around for a party to do it. Let's do it ourselves and let's give them the list and say Democrats, Republicans, independents, who's going to run on this platform? Because soon we will have a million people. Right now we have 256,000 members of the 9/12 Project. We can get a lot more than that, and this will be your special interest group. It won't be controlled by me or a corporation or anybody else. It will be controlled by you. So the first step? You go to, you become a member, and it's free and everything else. All you have to do is go to the wish list and type out what is it that you want and then I'm going to select them, narrow them down to maybe 50 of them, maybe 100 and we'll vote on them and we'll keep voting until we get them down to 10 and then we'll start there. What are these tea parties about in well, let's make these tea parties about something except just stop spending. Let's be specific. Let's be united. Let's let our voice be heard in one giant chorus. Here is just a couple of them. This one comes from Grace: I'm 15. Some may say I don't know much about this stuff but I do know that limiting terms and cutting their size down considerably will solve much of our problems. Greed for power and power itself is what corrupts. Cut their power supply and suddenly you get a better and cleaner politics. President Lincoln said power corrupts and absolute power corrupts absolutely. I believe that. So one thing for sure, cut the power and you cut the temptations of corruption more than in half. She's 15 and she does get it.

This comes from JDL: I'd like to see the president's term changed to one term of six years so they can work the whole time and not be campaigning through their first term.

Cooper says, don't allow those who have been in law or have a license to practice law to serve as a representative in the federal government. Lawyers have a conflict of interest when writing or determining the laws as they will. When done serving, they have a conflict of interest as they capitalize off the laws they make. Can I tell you something, Cooper? You go back and read Thomas Paine. This thing jumped out of the page to me. I've read this now I don't know how many times because I'm updating it for today's Common Sense and I was reading it last week and I saw in there he was selling our kind of government. I don't know how many times I read Thomas Paine's Common Sense. This time I read it and the answer screamed out at me and that was exactly what you said. He said, representative government is going to be perfect because these people are going to have to go back into their own communities and they are going to have to go back into business so they will never vote a rod against themselves. They will never vote a penalty against themselves. And it jumped out at me and I thought, oh, my gosh! How right he was. They haven't. Most of the people that are in congress have never run a business. They've never done anything like this and they don't fear about going back into business or the private sector. Most of them, 51 or 52, 52 of the senators are lawyers. That's why you don't get tort reform. That's why you don't get any laws changed or any rods against the legal system.

The other rod that they never seem to pass is a rod against lobbyists. Why is that? Because I contend a lot more of them, if they don't go into law, then you got the other section that goes into lobbyists. This is the problem. You are exactly right. Now, how do we solve it? You try to solve it at Give me your list. This is the next step. I want to know what you want.

By the way, we're doing a special tonight on the Internet after the broadcast at 6:00 on the Fox News Channel. We're going to talk a little bit about this stuff on the TV show tonight and then after the broadcast a special Web broadcast on, is it Is that where we're doing it? at 6:00. Join us for that and we'll talk a little bit more about it tonight on the Fox News Channel. And at and your phone calls on this also today at 888 727 BECK.

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 for more.

GLENN: Boy, there are some good, good solutions here, just good solutions. You can read them all on

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."

The Biden administration is now doing everything it can to censor what it has decided is COVID-19 "misinformation." But Glenn Beck isn't confident that the silencing of voices will stop there.

Yeonmi Park grew up in North Korea, where there is no freedom of speech, and she joined Glenn to warn that America must not let this freedom go.

"Whenever authoritarianism rises, the first thing they go after is freedom of speech," she said.

Most self-proclaimed Marxists know very little about Marxism. Some of them have all the buzzwords memorized. They talk about the exploits of labor. They talk about the slavery of capitalist society and the alienation caused by capital. They talk about the evils of power and domination.

But they don't actually believe what they say. Or else they wouldn't be such violent hypocrites. And we're not being dramatic when we say "violent."

For them, Marxism is a political tool that they use to degrade and annoy their political enemies.

They don't actually care about the working class.

Another important thing to remember about Marxists is that they talk about how they want to defend the working class, but they don't actually understand the working class. They definitely don't realize that the working class is composed mostly of so many of the people they hate. Because, here's the thing, they don't actually care about the working class. Or the middle class. They wouldn't have the slightest clue how to actually work, not the way we do. For them, work involves ranting about how work and labor are evil.

Ironically, if their communist utopia actually arrived, they would be the first ones against the wall. Because they have nothing to offer except dissent. They have no practical use and no real connection to reality.

Again ironically, they are the ultimate proof of the success of capitalism. The fact that they can freely call for its demise, in tweets that they send from their capitalistic iPhones, is proof that capitalism affords them tremendous luxuries.

Their specialty is complaining. They are fanatics of a religion that is endlessly cynical.

They sneer at Christianity for promising Heaven in exchange for good deeds on earth — which is a terrible description of Christianity, but it's what they actually believe — and at the same time they criticize Christianity for promising a utopia, they give their unconditional devotion to a religion that promises a utopia.

They are fanatics of a religion that is endlessly cynical.

They think capitalism has turned us into machines. Which is a bad interpretation of Marx's concept of the General Intellect, the idea that humans are the ones who create machines, so humans, not God, are the creators.

They think that the only way to achieve the perfect society is by radically changing and even destroying the current society. It's what they mean when they say things about the "status quo" and "hegemony" and the "established order." They believe that the system is broken and the way to fix it is to destroy, destroy, destroy.

Critical race theory actually takes it a step farther. It tells us that the racist system can never be changed. That racism is the original sin that white people can never overcome. Of course, critical race theorists suggest "alternative institutions," but these "alternative institutions" are basically the same as the ones we have now, only less effective and actually racist.

Marx's violent revolution never happened. Or at least it never succeeded. Marx's followers have had to take a different approach. And now, we are living through the Revolution of Constant Whining.

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

Americans are losing faith in our justice system and the idea that legal consequences are applied equally — even to powerful elites in office.

Rep. Devin Nunes (R-CA) joined Glenn Beck on the radio program to detail what he believes will come next with the Durham investigation, which hopefully will provide answers to the Obama FBI's alleged attempts to sabotage former President Donald Trump and his campaign years ago.

Rep. Nunes and Glenn assert that we know Trump did NOT collude with Russia, and that several members of the FBI possibly committed huge abuses of power. So, when will we see justice?
