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!

"What's your climate credit score?" That's a question Americans may have to answer if the green global elites get their way.

While the media has distracted us with Orange Man Bad! and Russia, Russia, Russia!, the Left has been busy working on the fundamental transformation of America with a primary pressure point — YOUR money through YOUR bank. Democrats, forgetting the words of MLK, like to group people into categories. They judge you based on what skin color you have, your religion, occupation, your ideology, and now … your carbon footprint.

On his Wednesday night TV special this week, Glenn Beck exposes how they're now planning, not only to categorize you, but to give you a score. It'll determine everything for you: whether you can buy a home, get a new car, open a business … EVERYTHING. And if you don't bend the knee? You'll be blacklisted. But this isn't some far-off conspiracy theory. Multiple big U.S. banks are part of a private U.S. financial group enacting these policies now. It's here, and we're ALL at risk.

Unlike the mainstream media, we at the "Glenn Beck Radio Program" decided to actually do the research and get to the bottom of CPAC's controversial stage design, which many on the Left have suggested was purposefully shaped like an obscure Nazi symbol. We got our answers straight from the source — and it's not what the media is suggesting.

American Conservative Union chairman Matt Schlapp joined Glenn on Wednesday to share the real story of the stage design, who designed it, and why he's taking legal options against those smearing the Conservative Political Action Conference's name seriously.

Matt told Glenn he'd never heard of the alleged Nazi insignia, noting that even a staff member who "studied anti-Semitism in college" did not recognize the obscure symbol. He went on to explain how the stage designing firm, Design Foundry, and Hyatt Hotels worked collaboratively with CPAC event organizers for months throughout the designing and construction of the stage. However, when pressured by the cancel culture mob on social media, both companies "ran for the tall grass."

"Both the Hyatt and [Design Foundry] looked to CPAC and said [they] had nothing to do with this stage. That's outrageous," Matt stated. "This whole process takes months ... everybody saw this. Everybody had to figure out how to construct this. Everybody had eyes on it from every angle. And nobody in that process ever raised their hand and said, 'Oh, you know, I took a European history class, and I noticed [that the stage design looked like a Nazi symbol.] Nobody."

Matt went on to add that, while CPAC expects attacks from the Left, they also have every intention of standing up for themselves, the conservative community, the Jewish community, and all the people who love America.

"We're fine with taking the hits. We always take the hits, it's part of being a prominent conservative group. We'll take the hits, but we won't let people lie," Matt said.

"I can't tell you how many people have called me during the course of this most tumultuous of years and said, at what point does the conservative community, do the 74 million Americans who voted for Donald Trump, do the people who love America, and think it's okay to read Dr. Seuss, and love Thomas Jefferson and Mount Rushmore, at what point do they start pushing back on the cancel culture? At what point do they say, this is a line you can't cross? I think we're at that line," he added.

"We called our conference, 'America Uncanceled.' The whole thing became about them canceling us. At what point do we not have the right to say,' you can't treat us this way'? You're disparaging us. You're destroying our reputation. You're destroying our ability to be respected members of our community. So, I'm taking your challenge of pursuing our legal options very seriously. And I think we have to go broader. We can't let these companies just follow the woke mob. We can't do it."

CNN reporter Jim Acosta was confronted at CPAC by The Federalist reporter David Marcus with a valid question: "When are you guys going to start covering Cuomo?" His answer — or, really, lack of an answer — perfectly demonstrates why he was earlier surrounded by CPAC attendees chanting, "CNN sucks!"

On the "Glenn Beck Radio Program" Tuesday, Glenn and producer Stu Burguiere react to a video clip of the exchange with Acosta, as well as the mainstream media's double standards when it comes to Democratic New York Gov. Andrew Cuomo.

Glenn Beck can't help but wonder, "What is wrong with us?" in light of the Left's latest move — canceling six Dr. Seuss books due to "hurtful and wrong" illustrations — that takes America one step closer to complete insanity. And now, school districts are jumping on board after President Joe Biden seems to have dropped Dr. Seuss from the White House's annual "Read Across America Day" proclamation.

On the radio program Tuesday, Glenn argued that deleting books is the perfect example of fascism, and asked when we as a country will finally realize it.

"They are banning Dr. Seuss books. How much more do you need to see before all of America wakes up? ... This is fascism!" Glenn said. "We don't destroy books. What is wrong with us, America?"
