In The Marketplace: Why ‘American Made’ Matters (part 5 of 5)

Editor’s Note: This article was written by Colin Balfe, director of The Marketplace by TheBlaze, and is part of a series of stories highlighting businesses in TheBlaze’s eCommerce channel. In this five-part series on “American Made” small businesses, we learn about the people behind the shops in The Marketplace by TheBlaze. Read Part 1 of the series HERE, Part 2 HERE, Part 3 HERE, and Part 4 HERE.

In this five-part series on American-made small businesses, we’ve introduced you to The Marketplace by TheBlaze and our goal of assembling the world’s finest collection of unique small businesses. The Marketplace looks for quality products but more importantly, we look for quality people—entrepreneurs living their own version of the American Dream.

We’ve introduced you to Minuteman Watches, designed, assembled and tested in the U.S. with a portion of profits supporting America’s veterans. We told you about ChristWreath – the ultimate symbol to help put Christ back into Christmas. Part three of the series shared Constitution Questwith you, a smart, engaging and entertaining board game used by teachers and families across America. Part four of the series told you about Nebraska Star Beef, a family-owned small business for generations.

We’ve highlighted the achievements these small businesses have made and we’re proud to offer their products in The Marketplace. These small businesses refuse to lower their standards, despite the obstacles they face. Thanks to their commitment, we enjoy the benefits that come from manufacturing within American borders—job creation, less foreign dependence and keeping money circulating in our own country.

While the American-made movement has been around for years, there is an ever-growing list of resources available to support American businesses and manufacturers. Aside from the American Made collection in The Marketplace, we’re pleased to join an array of small businesses, agencies and nonprofit organizations—all dedicated to promoting and continuing the American made movement. We’ve assembled our favorites below:

Maker’s Row: Dedicated to simplifying the manufacturing process, Maker’s Row has compiled an exceptional, visually impressive database of American-made manufacturers. They put USA-made manufactures on the map, literally, with in-depth, location-specific profiles. Maker’s Row manufacturers are divided into two categories: Apparel/Accessories and Furniture/Home Decor, with more industries being added. Discover how it works and why Maker’s Row is one of the best ways to support the American-made movement.

Made in America Movement: The Made in America Movement is dedicated to encouraging consumers to buy American made products. The MAM provides its members with resources to expand their use of USA-made products. They work to connect American manufacturers, suppliers, production companies and distributors across the country and lobby for these businesses, while striving to tell Washington to bring American jobs home.

American Made Matters: This organization’s mission is to educate consumers that buying USA-made products strengthens the American dream. They also connect consumers with American made retailers and wholesalers through a massive compilation of American made businesses on their website. You may shop by product category or by company.

Just days after Canadian pastor James Coates was released from prison for refusing to bow to COVID-19 lockdown restrictions, several police officers showed up at another church to ensure restrictions were being followed. But Polish pastor Artur Pawlowski of the Cave of Adullam Church in Alberta, Canada, knew his rights, telling the cops not to come back until they had a warrant in hand.

Filling in for Glenn Beck on the radio program this week, Pat Gray and Stu Burguiere played a video of the interaction.

"Please get out. Please get out of this property immediately. Get out!" Pawlowski can be heard yelling at the six officers who entered his church.

"Out! Out! Out! Get out of this property immediately until you come back with a warrant," he continued. "Go out and don't come back. I don't want to talk to you. You Nazis, Gestapo is not allowed here! ... Nazis are not welcome here! Do not come back you Nazi psychopaths. Unbelievable sick, evil people. Intimidating people in a church during the Passover! You Gestapo, Nazi, communist fascists! Don't you dare come back here!"

One of the most dangerous existential threats to the United States is Critical Race Theory, or CRT. As Glenn Beck has exposed over the past year, CRT is gaining momentum and has been preached in our universities for a while now.

Then last August, leaked documents revealed that Marxism, activist ideology of Black Lives Matter, is making its way into grade school classrooms across the country. And since then, things have only gotten more intense.

On next week's Wednesday night special, Glenn will expose the new ways progressives are systematically indoctrinating our kids and culture with this dangerous ideology. But first, it's crucial that you know what your kids may already be learning.

"What I'm about to show you is just the beginning," Glenn said, introducing the leaked documents.

"I found it shocking that Black Lives Matter supporters have developed lesson plans that start from preschool all the way up to the 12th grade," he continued. "Do you know the money it would take to tailor things ... and get it out to the schools and the unions for each age, to be able to brainwash the kids on Marxism and how to destroy capitalism by using race, sexual orientation, and gender?

"Our children don't stand a chance," Glenn added later. "They're not being taught anything except how to be radical activists. What the hell has happened?"

During his campaign, President Joe Biden survived scandal after scandal involving his son Hunter — the Ukraine/Burisma scandal, the laptop scandal, the one involving a stripper from Arkansas and a long-lost child. And yet, after it all appeared to have been swept under the rug, Hunter has now released a memoir — "Beautiful Things."

Filling in for Glenn Beck on the radio program this week, Pat Gray and Stu Burguiere discussed Hunter's "horrible" response when asked on "CBS This Morning" if the laptop seized by the FBI in 2019 belonged to him and reviewed a few segments from his new book, which they agreed raises the question: Is Hunter trying to sabotage his father's career?

Countless corporations — from Delta Air Lines, Coca-Cola, and Porsche to UPS and LinkedIn — are calling out the Georgia voting laws, calling them "restrictive," "racist," and "discriminative." Meanwhile, words like "stakeholder" and "equitable" are starting to show up in their arguments.

On the radio program, Glenn Beck gave the "decoder ring" for what's really going on here, because our society is being completely redesigned in front of our eyes.

There's a reason why all these big businesses are speaking out now, and it has very little to do with genuine ideology, Glenn explained. It's all about ESG scores and forcing "compliance" through the monetization of social justice.

Glenn went on to detail exactly what ESG scores are, how they're calculated, and why these social credit scores explain the latest moves from "woke" companies.
