Glenn Beck: Remember Why We Were Attacked on Sept. 11




Watch Glenn Beck weekdays at 5p & 2a ET on FOX News Channel

In my lifetime, there has never been a bigger story than the events that took place on September 11, 2001. When 19 Al Qaeda terrorists hijacked four commercial planes and carried out their suicide attacks, murdering 3,000 people — it changed us.

Before 9/11, Americans had become complacent. We took our security and our freedoms for granted and assumed it would always be there for us. We fell asleep at liberty's wheel and were slapped into reality in a few, fateful moments.

Friday is a day of remembrance. We cannot allow ourselves to slip back into our pre-9/11 ignorance or we will be doomed to let history repeat itself. That is why we must never forget the sights and sounds from what started as a glorious Tuesday September morning in 2001.

But as I watch the memorial services here in Manhattan, I can't help but notice that the hole in the ground where the World Trade Center once stood so mightily is still a just a hole in the ground.

Year after year it's the same thing.

Are you telling me that eight years is too little time, in America today, to construct a high-rise building? Is this the really the best we can do?

When we built the Empire State Building, construction began on March 17, 1930. After 57,000 tons of steel, 3,400 workers and just 400 days, it opened on May 1, 1931.

The Hoover Dam, a 1,200-foot long and 700-foot tall concrete dam in the middle of nowhere, was started in 1931 and finished just five years later. Over 100 people died building it.

When Americans want to do something, we find a way to get it done. It's who we are or at least it's who we were.

These two events happened in the 1930s; do we have less imagination now? Do we have less technology than we did in 1930? Less spirit or drive?

We've been waiting eight years now for the new Freedom tower and we still have a hole in the ground. Four hundred days to build the Empire State Building and 2,920 days to have this?

Why?

I believe if it were up to you or me, the Freedom Tower would have been done years ago and it would be towers — not tower — because we would have built both of them the way they were before, except they would have been better and stronger and my guess is they would have been 25 stories taller. And have a big, fat "come and try that again" sign on top. We would have built it with our bare hands if we had to because that's what Americans do. We fail or we face a crisis and we make things better.

I believe the only reason we haven't rebuilt isn't because of Americans; it's because we're being held back — by politicians, special interest groups, unions, political correctness, you name it.

Did you know it's not the "Freedom Tower" anymore? It's going to be One World Trade. Why? Freedom tower — ooh, yeah, that might be too offensive and we want to make sure we have the occupancy. Who could possibly find something offensive about freedom? Well, China for one. But I don't want anyone in the "Freedom Tower" who is offended by freedom, do you?

Today, on 9/11, remember the victims, but also remember why we were attacked.

We were attacked by the enemies of freedom. What better way to remember the fallen than to build a tower named after the very thing they died for? To remind us of who they were and who we are.

We have forgotten: We're not Europeans, we're Americans! We run in to burning buildings, not away from them. We are a good and decent people and we are free. Although, it seems every day more and more, it's becoming clear that all those things we did to stay free are going to eventually end up enslaving us. Grab it while you can — you can't bottle it, you can't really hold on to it, but you can live it.

You can pursue your dreams here. People aren't risking their lives to leave oppressive countries in order to go to France. How many in Hollywood are paddling an inner tube to get to Cuba? They come to America because of who we are, who we've always been.

Get the politicians, the special interest groups and everybody else the hell out of the way, and let Americans build the "Freedom Tower." Send a message to the world: You cannot keep us down; anything you destroy will only make us stronger.

And here's a message to those in Washington: Get the hell out of the way. That scar on the end of this island is your monument. That's what you do with a tragedy or an emergency. Beat it! Let's give Americans a chance to do it themselves. Because the American spirit is still alive; it may have been dormant for a while — dazed and confused, held down by people who are trying to put a cap on American ingenuity — but I believe it's about to come out of the smoke, dust itself off and declare itself free again.

If there is any doubt about the radical agenda in our school systems, this California teacher just put that to bed. She asked to remain anonymous and courageously agreed to join Glenn on radio Wednesday and provided a document all about the mandatory training the teachers in her school district all had to complete.

They are not required to implement the training in actual curriculum but they are encouraged to talk to their kids about it. She asked colleagues what they thought about the training and many said that it was not sitting right with them but maybe it was because they had racist tendencies themselves.

Here's how the conversation went:

Once again, the media has failed to carry out even the most cursory investigation when it comes to allegations against Rep. Ilhan Omar (D-Minn.). But investigative journalist David Steinberg has been piecing together "32 new, verifiable, archived pieces of evidence" that indicate Omar conducted the "most extensive spree of state and federal felonies by an elected congressperson in U.S. history."

Steinberg joined Glenn Beck on the radio program to detail how the pieces fit together in his latest report available on TheBlaze.com.

"It's over," Steinberg told Glenn. "There's really nothing left. It's all ... the publicly available documentation that anyone would need to be convinced that, for eight years, [Omar] married her brother to commit immigration fraud. And this marriage fraud also was in the service of education fraud/student loan fraud. And along the line, we have evidence, that she filed at least two years of fraudulent tax returns, possibly eight [years]. We have evidence that she perjured herself eight times during her 2017 divorce from this man. And along the way, of course, we know she was living in public housing. We also know she was likely receiving subsidized child care.

"Essentially, almost everything she put her name on for eight years was perjury or fraud. And it all adds up to likely the most extensive spree of state and federal felonies by an elected congressperson in U.S. history. I really have no other way to put it. That's how big this is."

The extreme-left idea that gender is "fluid" is a complete denial of science, according to sex researcher and neuroscientist Dr. Debra Soh.

Dr. Soh joined Glenn Beck on his latest podcast to talk about her new book, "THE END OF GENDER: Debunking the Myths about Sex & Identity in Our Society" and to offer a hard dose of objective truth about gender and sexual orientation based on scientific facts.

She also explained why she had to leave academia to be able to speak freely about sex and identity, and how — despite being a liberal — the far-left is actively trying to cancel her for saying there are biological differences between men and women.

In February 2020, Glenn Beck and his research team uncovered an alleged multi-billion dollar money laundering scheme which lead to a missing $1.8 billion in U.S. aid sent to Ukraine during the Obama administration, all of which pointed to Igor Kolomoisky, the corrupt Ukrainian billionaire at the center of it all.

If you missed Glenn's February special, "Ukraine: The Final Piece," you can find it here.

This week, the FBI raided the offices of U.S. companies owned by Kolomoisky in Cleveland and Miami. Additionally, the Department of Justice accused the Ukrainian oligarch of stealing billions of dollars from PrivatBank and then laundering the money through a network of companies all over the world. Kolomoisky and partner, Hennadiy Boholyubov, owned PrivatBank until December 2016, when Ukraine nationalized the bank because billions of dollars had gone missing.

Kolomoisky has ties to the Ukrainian gas firm Burisma, former Burisma board member Hunter Biden, and Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelensky, whose phone call with President Donald Trump was central to the Democrats' now-failed impeachment attempt.

On the radio program Friday, Glenn spoke with chief researcher Jason Buttrill about these latest developments.

"Yeah, $1.8 billion of [taxpayer] money that just vanished has now been found, or at least part of it, in Miami and Cleveland," Glenn said.

"I can't believe it's taken this long," Jason responded. "You said in February that [Kolomoisky] was the key to finding out where the money went. And we're talking about $1.8 billion dollars — $1.8 billion! That could finance a small war."

"That money went to PrivatBank — that's Kolomoisky's bank," he continued. "It was later nationalized after they found out all this money was mysteriously going missing. But it went through a bank in Cypress then, poof, it was laundered all over the world. [...] We also showed, in one of the previous shows, that there were wire transfers going from Burisma, which Kolomoisky is the managing principal of, to Hunter Biden."

Glenn and Jason also talked about recent reports from the Department of Homeland Security (DHS) alleging ties between American revolutionaries, such as Antifa, and Marxist terrorists in Syria, which BlazeTV exposed back in June. Find out more here.
