Washington D.C. - American “conservative radio and television host”, political commentator, author and entrepreneur, Glenn Beck, hosts his “Restoring Honor” rally today along the steps of the Lincoln Memorial.

“America today begins to turn back to God,” the controversial cable commentator tells the crowd of conservative activists as he kicks off a rally on the 47th anniversary of Martin Luther King’s ‘I Have a Dream’ speech.

Beck, who was honored by the Liberty University during their 2010 Commencement exercises with an honorary Doctoral Degree, began to focus on what would become many episodes on his TV and radio shows on Van Jones, the Special Advisor for Green Jobs at President Barack Obama’s White House Council on Environmental Quality.

Beck’s focus was on Jones’ involvement in STORM, a communist non-governmental group, and his support for hotly debated death row inmate, Mumia Abu-Jamal, who was convicted of killing a police officer. Beck spotlighted video of Jones referring to Republicans as “assholes”, and a petition Jones signed suggesting that Bush knowingly let the 9/11 attacks happen.
