Glenn's new company helps local business get exposure

"We said we wanted to find ways to expose good, decent companies and good, decent people and get them exposure and help them launch," Glenn told listeners on the radio show this morning.

Today, Markdown.com does just that.

At 58 years old Robert Darling, founder of Slotto, found himself unemployed for the first time in his life. He first went to the streets with a sign that read, “I need a job.” As months turned to years, Robert realized the only way out of his desperation was to create his own destiny. Out of Robert’s hardship, the brainchild of ‘Slotto’ was born. Slotto represents everything 'Made in America' stands for - that anyone with a dream, a little ingenuity & willingness to work can become successful.

Even the local news picked up on his amazing story:

Darling writes:

Inspired by Charles Eames’ House of Cards when I was growing up in the 1950’s, Slotto finally came to life in 2008 when I was unable to find a job for the first time in my 61 years. I sold Slotto at the Portland, Oregon Satur- day Market for 3 years as my wife’s job paid most of the bills. I tested large and small Slotto sets at local pre-schools and as the sets got better so did the response.

Today, Slotto has become part of the Early Childhood Training pro- gram at one of the largest Children’s Museum in America and they claim it’s “...right at the top!” when compared to other construction sets on the market today.

After being featured on a TV news station in January, I was contacted by the CEO of a major US corporation about mass production. Our original plan was for them to produce the plastic sets and I would produce the wood- en sets. On his reputation alone, Walmart has agreed to place Slotto in their stores pending pricing and cost studies. Unfortunately, they have been un- able to find a way to make a plastic set that will fit into their cost limits.

In the meantime, still on the rags side of what I’d hoped was going to be a “rags to riches,” story, Glenn Beck and the great people at Markdown.com are helping me keep the dream alive with this 48 hour sale.

I still hand make each set in my 10’ x 8’ backyard shop with old, but still accurate tools.

Three members of the 1st Place team in the 2010 State of Oregon Lego Competition, have Slotto sets and integrate them with their Lego creations. One 13 year old girl commented, “I like Slotto because you’re not limited in what you can create.” Her brother said, “..everything just fits!”

I was featured in a recent toy industry magazine, The Toy Book as a new toy that’s coming to the market soon as we’d expected to be in Walmart by now. I’m still looking for investors who might help this American rags to riches story become a reality and be an inspiration for others to be free to create and pursue their dreams in this greatest country on God’s green earth!

Thank you for your time and consideration and each set has a money- back guarantee. I haven’t gotten one back yet!

How does a sports writer know how to fix America, and America's racial dilemma?

In a special edition of the "Glenn Beck Radio Program," Outkick sports columnist Jason Whitlock filled in Tuesday for Glenn to explain how we can bring America back together, lean into racial harmony, and restore the values of our Founding Fathers. Because if not us, then who will?

Jason started out by explaining how, during a recent appearance on the program, he felt a spiritual connection with Glenn, regardless of physical differences, as both share a common passion for God and country.

"Glenn and I share a kindred spirit. A kindred passion," Jason said. "We have two things that we love and are passionate about: God and country. I am not a minister. I'm a flawed sinner just like Glenn and just like you. But I am a believer. Believers share an energy that connects them, that cuts through our physical differences and makes those differences irrelevant relevant. That's what I felt when I met Glenn, an energy and a spirit that connects us. We are broadcasters, media personalities, operating in separate spaces, trying to talk to Americans, who share our passion."

Jason went on to say that he believes there are forces operating, both outside of and inside America, that are working to separate America from God, and that much of what we've witnessed in 2020 — from the racial division stirred by the mainstream and social media, to the rioting and looting by Antifa and Black Lives Matter, to the "remaking of the sports world into a shrine that celebrates resisting criminal suspects and denigrates this great country at every turn" — are symptoms and consequences of America's enemies separating God and country.

"We are one nation under God. We are nothing without Him," Jason continued. "The flawed sinners who founded this nation baked God into this country with their Declaration of Independence. We hold these truths to be self-evident, that all men are created equal. That they are endowed by their creator with certain unalienable rights. That among those, are life, liberty, and the pursuit of happiness. The foreign and domestic enemies of this nation are baking a new American cake. God isn't an essential ingredient in this new cake. He isn't an ingredient at all. The removal of faith is sewing the disharmony that is terrorizing and destroying the United States of America.

"Why am I here today? I'm here to tell you how we take our country back, how we restore the freedoms and the liberties our enemies seek to remove in their remaking of a godless America."

One of the most shocking things British journalist, political commentator, and author of "The Madness of Crowds," Douglas Murray witnessed during his recent stay in America, was how many Americans are acting as if they live in 1930s Germany or behind the Iron Curtain, afraid to stand up and speak out because they're afraid of the consequences.

Murray joined the "Glenn Beck Podcast" this week to explain why he believes the state of America is actually worse than we realize, and how the Left's obsession with rewriting history has ushered in guilt, fear, and a "silent majority."

Murray said he's particularly "fed up" with those on the Right who are afraid to voice their opinion because they don't want to become the target of leftist mobs on social media.

"Do you think anyone in history who told the truth had an easy time? You've got the easiest time that any opposition movement ever did in history," Murray said.

"You cannot have these people in America living in a free society — which is for the time being free — pretending that they live under the circumstances of Jews in 1930s Germany," he added. "Speak up. Speak out. Don't be a silent majority; be a very damn noisy majority. And don't put up with the oppression of people who are totally insincere ... they want to make money. They want to win. Nothing more. Call them out ... and get back to what you should be doing as a nation."

New York City shut down its schools over the coronavirus with barely any notice. But even before that, Governor Andrew Cuomo apparently wasn't in the mood to be asked about it, and he made that very clear to reporters.

Asked on Wednesday whether parents could expect schools to be closed as soon as Thursday, Cuomo mocked reporters for their "obnoxious and offensive" questions and accused them of not paying attention. Watch the testy exchange for yourself here.

On Thursday's radio program, Glenn Beck and producer Stu Burguiere had plenty to say about Stu's least favorite governor and the decision to close schools. But Glenn also offered his own theory on why coronavirus restrictions have become so political: Americans refuse to be forced into submission.

Everything comes down to the two Senate runoffs in Georgia. If we lose both races, we lose the country. Democrats know this and are pouring in millions to usher in a Marxist agenda.

As the Left tries to hide how radical the two candidates really are, Glenn takes us inside the Democrat war room to expose the wolf in pastor's clothing, Raphael Warnock, and America's Justin Trudeau, Jon Ossoff. Socialism, the Green New Deal, and "defund the police" are all on the table. And Glenn warns of what's to come if conservatives don't activate: Chuck Schumer will weaponize the Senate, and the radical Left will launch an all-out assault to ravage the Constitution.
