Glenn Beck's 9-12 program

Even though Jeff and I are both working extra jobs to get out of debt Dave Ramsey style, we were able to find the time for Glenns big We Surround Them Debut. We went to the meetup at Noah's in South Jordan. The Noah's reception center was a lovely location, the place was packed. Doors opened at 2 for sitting, we showed up about ten minuets after 2pm and all the seats in the main room were already full. Thankfully they had overflow rooms. Jeff walked up the outside of the main room and talked to people intill he found us two seats, two rows from the front. In addition to providing a nice location free cookies, water and books were provided.

The show opened with Glen Beck back stage at his studio. At one point he was so over come he started to cry and joked that he was becoming a televangelist.

I was impressed when Glenn said we were largest meetup. Also they purchased the largest server possible, and still shut it down immediately with all the traffic trying to get to . The 9-12 Project is still shut down now.

The suspense was continued when Glen said he was working on two different projects he wanted to show us on 9/12/09. Then he challenged us to show him what we could do between now and then also.

Glenn Beck recommended two books. The 5000 Year Leap and The Real George Washington. Jeff has read the 5000 year leap, and loved it. He has been telling many people to read it, and one of them even challenged our Steak President to read it. Everything I have heard Jeff say about the book is wonderful.

We decided we host a Republic reading group to read these important books, starting with The 5000 year leap, then The real George Washington, then going on from there.

I agree that we need to educate ourselves first, then act. That acting on fear without conviction and understanding only makes the problem worse. Glenn said the government is so messed up that it will take 100 years to clear it up. That is a long time. But what else are we to do? Do we fight the never ending battle, or stand in the socialist line with our heads down?

Glen asked us if we are willing to do what is right even if it means it will be hard and we loose everything for it in order to establish freedom for our children. Yes, I am willing to do that.

Glenn had a special guest who had discussed survivors, the best survivors had two important things, faith in God and a community. If you are disconnected from community you are divided week and conquered. It is just like the 9-12 snake, Unite or Die.

Afterwards at home I showed my children the We The People photo mosaic of the We Surround Them photos. They were pretty impressed by that. Then I showed them the 9-12 snake, and read to them the principals and values. Out of the mouth of babes... it all just made sense to them.

I am glad to have my faith renewed. I have been reading and watching our march to socialism for years, and have written and called my representatives and the white house many times. But it all started to seem to loose its point, and seemed ineffective. It is nice to see the community surrounding The 9-12 Program and know I am not alone. I am thankful for the strength in numbers and the community of like minded people who care about the principals of the Founding Fathers.


The Nine Principles

1. America is good.

2. I believe in God and He is the Center of my Life.

3. I must always try to be a more honest person than I was yesterday.

4. The family is sacred. My spouse and I are the ultimate authority, not the government.

5. If you break the law you pay the penalty. Justice is blind and no one is above it.

6. I have a right to life, liberty and pursuit of happiness, but there is no guarantee of equal results.

7. I work hard for what I have and I will share it with who I want to. Government cannot force me to be charitable.

8. It is not un-American for me to disagree with authority or to share my personal opinion.

9. The government works for me. I do not answer to them, they answer to me.

12 Values
Hard Work
Personal Responsibility

You Are Not Alone

If you agree with at least seven of those principles, then you are not alone. Please send a digital version of your picture to: wesurroundthem@foxnews.comand then stay tuned to the radio and television shows over the coming weeks to see how we intend to pull back the curtain.

I'm with you all the way on this. My cousin and I, having heard rumblings of a march on Washington, D.C. on 9-12-09 are making plans to be there. Unfortunately, we're not able to find any info about this on Glenn's website. Do you know anything about it? Thanks!

We've heard rumblings about a march on D.C. on 9-12-09. We can't find any info about that on Glenn's site. My cousin and I are planning a trip there in September. Do you know anything about this? Thanks.

I am going to my local Tea Party.

I almost bet you know more then me. What else have you found?

I have seen some places that suggest doing such a march on July 4th (Independence day)

and others on 9/11/09. But I have not yet found any place saying they are organising one now. I did just find this None for Glenn Beck specifically or on
