The 9-12 Project

Glenn Beck launched the 9-12 Project last Friday on his television show.

Mission Statement

This website is a place for you and other like-minded Americans looking for direction in taking back the control of our country. It is also a place to find information that will assist you in navigating the rough waters we face in the days, weeks and months ahead.

We suggest that you start in your own homes. Talk to your family about the Values and Principles. Discuss the importance of what the Founders designed for America.

Hold or attend a weekly meeting in your neighborhood or town. Communication with your neighbors is vital to the process of protecting our country. Gather in living rooms, coffee houses or restaurants. Share your thoughts and ideas.

Visit this website often. Make use of the resources that are linked here. Share the ideas and resources that have worked in your home or town.

This is a non-political movement. The 9-12 Project is designed to bring us all back to the place we were on September 12, 2001. The day after America was attacked we were not obsessed with Red States, Blue States or political parties. We were united as Americans, standing together to protect the greatest nation ever created.

That same feeling – that commitment to country is what we are hoping to foster with this idea. We want to get everyone thinking like it is September 12th, 2001 again.

Ask yourself these questions:

*Do you watch the direction that America is being taken in and feel powerless to stop it?
*Do you believe that your voice isn’t loud enough to be heard above the noise anymore?
*Do you read the headlines everyday and feel an empty pit in your stomach…as if you’re completely alone?

If you’ve answered YES, then you’ve fallen for the Wizard of Oz lie. While the voices you hear in the distance may sound intimidating, as if they surround us from all sides—the reality is very different. Once you pull back the curtain, you realize that there are only a few people pressing the buttons, and their voices are weak. The truth is that they don’t surround us at all.

We surround them.

At the origin of America, our Founding Fathers built this country on 28 powerful principles. These principles were culled from all over the world and from centuries of great thinkers. We have distilled the original 28 down to the 9 basic principles.

So, how do we show America what’s really behind the curtain? Read the nine simple principles. If you believe in at least seven of them, then we have something in common.

The 9-12 website is well worth checking out and has much food for thought.

I am awake late tonight, just finished posting my own blog. Am thoroughly, sorely, sadly disappointed in our country and government. Visited your other blog and decided to visit this one, which I haven't (sorry) been to since the election. And was surprised to read my sentiments exactly. I'll follow up by reading your links. Thanks CB!

Terrified, alone and willing to do whatever the government told us?


What as a$$hat.

Hey Roland,

If you were familiar with Glenn Beck you would know that he's for limited government.

What he is speaking of in regard to September 12th is the coming together of the American people... We were in Mississippi and we opened our church at lunch every day that first week so people could come and pray/be prayed for. We didn't know anyone who was a vicitim in the attacks but we were still greatly affected and spent a lot of time in prayer for those that were and their friends/families. It is about being aware of what really matters.
