    Some things you just can't control... Glenn Beck had been trying for weeks to get a military fly-over with fighter jets to start the event, but the White House blocked it saying it was "restricted airspace". The rally started at 10:00 am, but at precisely 9:59am, God gave us His fly-over that could not have been better. I still get Goose bumps when I watch this. Everyone who was there witnessed a miracle You got to remember that GOD is still in charge!!! http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=u2-QQoehT8c
  • Aerial Shot Comparison: Glenn Beck’s ‘Restoring Honor’ Rally Vs. Progressive’s ‘One Nation’ Rally.

    10/04/2010 8:11:29 AM PDT · by blog.Eyeblast.tv · 17 replies
    This past Saturday, progressives held the ‘One Nation’ rally at the Lincoln Memorial in an attempt to rival Glenn Beck’s 8/28 ‘Restoring Honor’ rally. While liberals talked a big game about how they’d have as many show to ‘One Nation’ as ‘Restoring Honor’, it wasn’t even close. And for that reason, I am going to do a comparison via aerial shots of both crowds. Keep in mind that on Friday, Ed Schultz boldly predicted that 300,000 would show up at the ‘One Nation’ rally. Well, he was wrong. (pictures in post)

    Glenn Beck's Restoring America rally was a pleasant surprise. All great leaders have something in common: their belief in a transcendent being called God. This belief in God is the answer to restoring America because we are not fighting a physical battle; we are first and foremost fighting a spiritual one. Without recognizing this we will lose the culture and end up with a society that trades freedom for comfort, with pleasure as the good, choosing leaders that promise that Utopian delusion. In discovering God we discover who Progressives are trying to replace through the use of an ever expanding...

    I’ve entitled this column “Burning Bridges over Beck” only because the original title, “How to Lose Conservative Friends and Alienate Readers While Drawing a Line in the Sand on the Banks of the Rubicon” was, as the Mrs. put it, “a bit verbose.”          Let’s get down to it. Glenn Beck is an influential figure; no one can deny that he has made considerable advances for the conservative movement. I have never watched his television program, so most of what I know about him I have learned by watching the response to him. That response is very impressive.The rally in Washington this...

    Last weekend, I had the privilege of attending the “Restoring Honor” rally in Washington, D.C. While I’m proud to be an American each and every day, I was especially proud on that day. The feeling I had being amongst so many people that love and appreciate the blessings of liberty was at times overwhelming. The purpose of the event was simple. We wanted to express our love for our nation and dedicate ourselves to practicing the values that has made it so strong. Unfortunately, this simple lesson appears to be impossible for liberals and the media to comprehend.

    Like hundreds of thousands of others, I attended the Glenn Beck “Restoring Honor” rally on the Mall in Washington, D.C. last Saturday. The crowds were massive. I figured the best way to document the size and scope of the crowd was in one continuous video shot, no cuts, no edits, walking from the back to the front. The walk took over 43 minutes. Starting at the Washington Monument as people continued to pour in at 10:00 am, walking through the crowds using the hill at the monument as amphitheater seating, I made my way through the crowd and to the...

    The Glenn Beck rally is confusing people. Why? He is aiming far beyond what most people consider to be the goalposts. Using Boyd’s continuum for war: Material, Intellectual, Moral. Analogously for political change: Elections, Institutions, Culture. Beck sees correctly that the Conservative movement had only limited success because it was good at level 1, for a while, weak on level 2, and barely touched level 3. Talk Radio and the Tea Party are level 3 phenomena, popular outbreaks, which are blowing back into politics. Someone who asks what the rally has to do with the 2010 election is missing the...

In reality, my experience was the complete opposite. Instead of hooded Klansman frothing with hate and venom, I made dozens of new Facebook friends and gained a hundred Twitter followers.

    Pundits will debate whether the crowd at Glenn Beck's Saturday rally in Washington was the largest in recent political history, but it was certainly among the most impressive. Mr. Beck is a television host and radio broadcaster with a checkered past and a penchant for incendiary remarks. But if he's judged by the quality of people of all colors that he attracted to the Lincoln Memorial, his stock can't help but rise. One would not be able to find a more polite crowd at a political convention, certainly not at a professional sporting event, probably not even at an opera....

    Only when liberals are in charge can terms like faith, hope, charity and sacred honor be classified as hate speech. Our ever increasing lexicon now includes “Becklash”; defined as an entirely irrational reaction to a TV and radio commentator’s well attended non-political Restoring Honor rally in Washington. Misery Merchant, Al Sharpton is the architect of Becklash. Always desperately seeking relevance, Sharpton saw an opportunity in exploitation when he realized that the date of Beck’s long planned event was the same date that Martin Luther King, Jr. gave his legendary “I Have a Dream” speech. Sharpton would do well to actually...

"ED staff are invited to join Secretary Arne Duncan, the Reverend Al Sharpton, and other leaders on Saturday, Aug. 28, for the 'Reclaim the Dream' rally and march," began an internal e-mail sent to more than 4,000 employees of the Department of Education on Wednesday. Sharpton created the event after Glenn Beck announced a massive Tea Party "Restoring Honor" rally at the Lincoln Memorial, where King spoke in 1963. The Washington Examiner learned...

    The rally demonstrated how the Obama administration's excesses have brought different strands of the conservative movement together. It will drive liberals crazy, but Glenn Beck's "Restoring Honor" Rally probably outdrew Rev. Martin Luther King Jr's original "I Have a Dream" rally, on which it was patterned. Mr. Beck's rally also lived up to its promise to be non-political. Weaving through the crowd on Saturday, the most partisan sign I saw read "I Can See November From My House." On a BBC panel discussion afterward, one of my fellow participants insisted the rally was political nonetheless because so many who attended...

None of those people are visible from the aerial photos. Here's a capsule of the crowd: A young couple from Pittsburgh behind us with their 4 well-behaved kids...

    Glenn Beck rally attendance has become hotly contested following Saturday's event in Washington.

Can we really get an accurate count of the number of people who attended Saturday's Glenn Beck “Restoring Honor” rally? The answer might be, “No, we can’t.” Crowd-counting science is far from exact. Much of it is based on examination of overhead photos to calculate crowd density and related statistics. It reminds us of the old intelligence agency practice of “shedology,” in which...

Republicans said the rally was a reflection of the country's objections to the policies of the Obama administration, while Democrats said the tea-party movement had created a deep split in the Republican Party that could hurt the GOP in the November elections. Attendees on Saturday packed nearly a mile of the National Mall at the foot of the Lincoln Memorial, in an event that carried the tone of a spiritual revival. Many at...

    Glenn Beck's 8/28 rally delivered a swift kick in the rear to anyone who claims he or the conservative grassroots movement is irrelevant or idle. "Welcome to Restoring Honor. You are standing on the banks of greatness, the banks of American dreams," said Beck, during his initial remarks. "America is a land of opportunity." Beck's opening salvo set the tune for the rest of the day, which focused on the founding fathers, with a heavy dose of religious reverence and military pride. Somewhere in the ballpark of 500,000 followers crowded the space between the Lincoln and Washington monuments, dwarfing Beck's...

    It was billed as a rallying call for spiritual and moral renewal. But some say the huge turnout in Washington DC for the “Restoring Honor” march underscores the political potency of the conservative movement in the US. TV host Glenn Beck organised the controversial gathering. He told the crowd that the country had lost its way. Some had ignored pleas not to bring political signs and banners. 47 years to-the-day and on the same spot where Martin Luther King Jr told HIS audience “I have a dream”, Sarah Palin drew comparisons: “You have the same still spine and moral courage...

How’d I miss that one? This may be the most Hazard riddled screen grab in ICN history. I think three Hazards for one still is a record…

    (CNN) – NAACP President Benjamin Todd Jealous, speaking at the "Reclaim the Dream" rally Saturday, castigated the message of the Glenn Beck rally across town in Washington. "For a year and a half, we've been subjected to small hearts and small minds on our small screens," he said, referring to conservative ideas on media. Beck is a conservative talk show host, with a program on Fox News as well as several radio programs.

    At rally near the Lincoln Memorial, the Fox host positions himself as simply a reasonable and tolerant patriot. Ask anyone who showed up at Glenn Beck's rally in Washington this weekend and they'll likely tell you that in their dream world, Glenn Beck would run for president. And he would do so on a ticket with Sarah Palin. Those two together would be unstoppable, you'd hear, and are the only pair who can, to borrow a phrase from Beck, "restore America." (snip) The purpose of the day, Beck said, was to bring America "back to God" in a sort of...

    Harmonizing Harold Camping, Glenn Beck, 8/28 and the Passion Week as a Type Harold Camping has recently given us his assurances that with the proper calculations we can be confident in our expectations to see the return of our LORD on May 21, 2011. Dispensationalists have the well earned reputation in providing us with date settings, and through the myriad of prophecy conferences where self-proclaimed experts are willing to share their updates in exchange for our time and money, I thought, as a Realized Millennialist, “how can I get in on this action” ? So with heavy borrowing of the...

    Red State reports that Google might be giving bogus results about maps and directions to Glenn Beck’s rally. "A reader emails that if you search Google today, on the eve of Glenn Beck’s rally, a search for Lincoln Memorial turns up, instead, the wrong address. And not just any wrong address either; it takes you to the FDR Memorial. Curious." I have to say, and this may not be popular, but I question Glenn Beck and his motives. Don’t yell at me. I don’t disagree with his message or the research he’s done. I just don’t like this whole cult...

    WASHINGTON—Thousands of conservative activists arrived in the nation's capitol for a series of rallies and political events, the main draw of which is a controversial Saturday rally on the steps of the Lincoln Memorial. The event, dubbed Restoring Honor, is hosted by Fox News Channel personality Glenn Beck. Billed as apolitical and held on the 47th anniversary of Martin Luther King Jr.'s "I Have a Dream" speech, the event is expected to draw tens of thousands of people for speeches by Mr. Beck, former Alaska Gov. Sarah Palin, and other prominent conservatives. The Beck rally organizers say the event is...
