"Bring it Beck" rally on Labor Day seeks to bring '1791' factory to small town

Tonight, a North Carolina town is hosting a “Bring It Beck” jobs rally on Labor Day in hopes of bring the manufacturing side of the 1791 clothing line to their town of Mount Airy.

The local newspaper writes:

The day’s events, which will last about two hours, include local elected government officials as well as businesspeople speaking, special music by Rachel Johnson and food sales.

A video will be made of the rally and edited into a documentary-type production that will be sent to Beck.

T-shirts bearing a “Bring It Beck” logo — recently produced to show the community’s support for the 1791 project Beck is wanting to start-up — will be offered during the rally for $10. Proceeds from shirt sales are going to the United Fund of Surry County, which will be represented at the gathering for a check presentation.

Fans may remember the mayor of the town calling into the show in early August to speak with Beck about the possibility of bringing 1791 - and the jobs it would create - to their town. Read the original story here.

“We have relied heavily on legacy industries such as textiles and furniture. In fact, at one time we were known all over the world for making socks. And in fact, my mother worked at Mount Airy Hosiery mill when that plant closed," the Mayor told Glenn during the interview.

Glenn had expressed some concern over the initial story coming out of Mount Airy, which reported taht several local politicians saw Glenn as too controversial to support. Nevertheless, Glenn has been willing to hear out her plans, but emphasized the non-profit focus of the 1791 initiative.

"I’m building it for all of the profits to go right directly to charity. So it’s not a profit organization. So, you know, we’d need some people that are going to help step to the plate and put this together, but this will be a Newman’s Own kind of situation where the employees are taken care of and everybody works hard but we’re all working for a cause to restart the engine of America,” Glenn told her.

The clothing line would be part of the Mercury One initiative:

A judge has banned Texas father Jeff Younger from speaking about his son, James, who was taken from him by our courts after he refused to call his son a girl. But Jeff said he'd rather go to jail than comply: "I'll appear in handcuffs ... but I'm not taking this tyranny."

Jeff joined Glenn Beck on "Targets of Tyranny" to tell James' story and explain the biggest lessons he's learned while battling our legal system.

"This interview is illegal in the state of Texas," Jeff told Glenn. "I was banned from publishing any blog posts, social media post, publishing a newspaper article, doing any writing at all about my situation. I was also permanently banned from doing interviews, doing podcasts, appearing on television interviews, and these are all specifically laid out," he explained.

"I was also banned from speaking on three political topics. I'm not allowed to talk about anything about transgender issues, gender expansiveness, or whether my son is a boy or a girl. And I have told this judge — and I tell this judge every time I do an interview — I will never follow your illegal and unconstitutional order. I have contempt for her as a judge issuing the order. I have maximum contempt for the tyrannical language of the order, and I will never follow the order," Jeff continued.

"I'm guilty of maximum criminal contempt in the 301st District Court of the state of Texas, and [the judge] is obligated to put me in jail for the maximum sentence, which is 180 days in the jail in Dallas County. Four days later, I'll be in the jail library with the writ of habeas corpus that I've already prepared. We will go to the 5th District, and we will see who's right. I'll appear in handcuffs, her in the judge's robe, but I'm not taking this tyranny. And I'm not going to stop speaking out about my son."

Here's how deep Amazon's ties to the government REALLY go — and why it matters to YOU

The world knows Amazon is an extraordinarily powerful company, but one family’s terrifying story demonstrates just how dark, dominant, and dishonorable the monopolistic corporation truly is. Amy Nelson’s husband, Carl, was accused of an unspecific crime by Amazon — his former employer — in 2020. Even though Carl was never charged with that crime, Amazon still seized nearly all the funds Amy and Carl had spent years acquiring. Everything was taken directly from their bank accounts via civil asset forfeiture. But the dangers of Amazon go even further.

Amy joined "The Glenn Beck Program" to detail just how menacing the relationship between Amazon and our federal government — specifically the DOJ — truly is.

Donald Trump announced his second run for the White House this week. And while Glenn Beck said he thinks Trump "did everything he needed to do" in his announcement speech — he was disciplined, didn't pick fights, and stayed focused on what's ahead — he still has some advice for the former president.

Watch the video clip from "The Glenn Beck Program" above to find out what Glenn believes Trump absolutely must do in order to reach as many voters as possible before the 2024 election. Can't watch? Download the podcast here.

Glenn Beck has warned that one day, you'll wake up and not recognize your country anymore. Are you there yet?

Governments at every level have been weaponized against Americans. The FBI shows up in full tactical gear at the homes of pro-lifers, terrifying young children and grandmas for the "crime" of peacefully protesting abortion. The ATF surprises legal gun owners on their doorsteps, demanding to see their firearms. State governments are trying to sneak in laws that allow the sexual mutilation of children — without the parents’ consent.

When we become confused as to what the government can and cannot do, we become numb to tyranny and take it on the chin, as we did with the COVID-19 mandates. And when the state comes knocking, we don’t know how to deal with it because we haven’t lived in that kind of country since 1791. Glenn warns we’re on the same road as every empire that ended in collapse.

On tonight's special presentation, Glenn features the stories of every-day Americans who have experienced government tyranny firsthand:
  • A gun shop owner who encountered a bone-chilling inspection by the ATF.
  • A father fighting for the right to see his twins after objecting to his 3-year-old son going through gender transition.
  • A woman who had almost $1M seized from her bank accounts even though she and her husband were never charged with a crime.
  • A couple who had their home raided by the FBI over a case of mistaken identity.
  • An FBI agent who turned whistleblower after he became fed up with the abuses he saw over Jan. 6 raids.

But tyrants can only exist when the people they are trying to subjugate forget that there are fundamental rights granted not by the state but by a higher power. And we have the blueprint to stop tyranny dead in its tracks. The founders armed us with the tools — we just need to know how to wield them. So how do peaceful Americans stand up to tyranny that comes in the disguise of “law”? Glenn and a panel of legal experts, including Sen. Mike Lee, arm you with the answers so you'll know what to do when the government comes knocking on YOUR door next.
