    He has explained the faith of our American founding fathers like no other in the media. He has exhaustively investigated the current and historical problems with socialism in the U.S. and abroad. He has rallied hundreds of thousands for the 912 Project and the Restoring Honor mass meetings, all the while pointing people to their Creator through, specifically, Jesus Christ. How amazed I was to watch a possibly ill or exhausted Glenn Beck say on his Monday TV program (after taking off from the radio) that, "I am not talking about a specific religion, just 'God'... whatever you define as...

    Election '10: Imitation is the sincerest form of flattery, but in the case of the "One Nation" rally it was also the sincerest form of futility. Despite the usual media puffery, this cycle's enthusiasm gap was clearly visible. Saturday's gathering in Washington was so sparse, according to Gateway Pundit, that C-SPAN's Web site felt it necessary to use a crowd shot from Glenn Beck's Oct. 28 "Restoring Honor" rally. The Gadsden "Don't Tread on Me" flags in the picture were a dead giveaway. The "astroturf" slur used by House Speaker Nancy Pelosi in 2009 to disparage the rise of the...

    So last weekend the big "progressive" response to Restoring Honor took place. "One Nation Working Together" boasts the support of more than 400 liberal groups representing whopping TENS OF THOUSANDS of people. They got the bright idea to "respond" to Glenn Beck's restoring honor rally so they could show the country that President Obama's perceived mandate for his socialist agenda carries less weight than a heated debate between Biden and a cardboard cutout of himself over who is "more smarter." So how did it all work anyway? Well, first you identify the organizations that support liberal causes and recognize their...

This could be shrugged off as insignificant, but it is a powerful example of the "unintended consequences" of the Marxist/Capitalist, Progressive/Conservative, Secular (group salvation, liberation theology)/Religious (individual salvation, Judeo Christian Culture) competing systems in America today.

    After Fox News host Glenn Beck led his spirit-filled "Restoring Honor" revival on the Mall last month, he seemed to be reinventing himself as an American Moses delivering America back to the Promised Land -- or perhaps the next Billy Graham, as Southern Baptist leader Richard Land suggested. Yet a new poll shows that Beck isn't quite yet a figure of biblical proportions, with 17 percent of Americans believing Beck "is the right person to lead a religious movement" and 50 percent saying he's not. Even among Republicans and white evangelicals, a highly motivated cohort of conservative voters who view...

    The Glenn Beck rally is confusing people. Why? He is aiming far beyond what most people consider to be the goalposts. Using Boydís 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...

It was a 12-step program distilled to a few key words, all lifted from a prayer delivered from the Lincoln Memorial: healing, recovery and restoration. Saturday's Beckapalooza was yet another step in Beck's own personal journey of recovery. Beck's history of alcoholism and addiction is familiar to any who follow him.

In fact, Beck cried as he questioned the large crowd (much larger than the the 80,000 CBS reported, but who is counting?), "Where is another George Washington?...

    Grass Roots: The president says he didn't watch any of Glenn Beck's "Restore Honor" rally on the National Mall. That's not surprising. Democrats and the White House haven't been listening to the people for awhile. Whistling past the political graveyard looming for his party in November, President Obama dismissed the crowd gathered to hear the Fox News pundit, telling Brian Williams of the NBC Nightly News, "It's not surprising that someone like a Mr. Beck is able to stir up a certain portion of (the American people) ... " He dismissed this crowd just as he and his party dismissed...

    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...

    It was a great day. First of all, I'm no expert at crowd estimates, but one thing to bear in mind when looking at the aerial photos is that under the dense trees all along the reflecting pool, there were wall-to-wall people sitting in the shade; if you wanted to go to the head (the portable johns were along the walkway), you needed to pick your way through the densely packed crowd. 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. But from Woodstock to the Million Man March, figuring out the number of people who show up at big events has never been easy. Can we really get an accurate count of the number of people who attended Saturday's Glenn Beck ďRestoring HonorĒ rally? The answer might be, ďNo, we canít.Ē 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 ďshedology,Ē in which...

    Does anyone know if Beck has published a list of the "Black Robed Brigade"? He mentioned them this morning on his show but I didn't get to hear the whole discussion. I would like to support these folks - if only I knew who they are. I checked his web site earlier today and couldn't find anything about them. Thanks!
  • Which Party is Racist?

    Recently the media and so called civil rights groups have been up in arms over Glenn Beck's Restoring Honor Rally. Reverend Walter Fauntroy said anyone who attends the rally or supports the Tea Party might as well be in The Ku Klux Klan and that conservatives have declared war on civil rights. I donít know what history books Reverend Fauntroy has been reading from but his statements clearly donít match the facts. Letís look at which party is racist and which one really stands up for individual rights. The Republican Party is the party that ended slavery. The Republican Party...

    An estimated 87,000 people attended a rally organized by talk-radio host and Fox News commentator Glenn Beck Saturday in Washington, according to a crowd estimate commissioned by CBS News. The company based the attendance on aerial pictures it took over the rally, which stretched from in front of the Lincoln Memorial along the Reflecting Pool to the Washington Monument. Beck and former Alaska Gov. Sarah Palin spoke at the rally. Beck, who predicted that at least 100,000 people would show up, opened his comments with a joke: "I have just gotten word from the media that there is over...

    Yesterday, hundreds of thousands of Americans Ė of many creeds and colors Ė made what ended up being a pilgrimage of sorts to the Lincoln Memorial in Washington, D.C., for Glenn Beck's Restoring Honor rally. Catholics, other Christians and Jews spoke to WND on site, many celebrating the themes of faith and reliance on God proclaimed from the platform. As WND reported, Beck proclaimed the purpose of the rally, saying, "It has nothing to do with politics; it has everything to do with God." Beck, the Fox News TV host and a professed Mormon, urged his fellow Americans to live...
