In the Marketplace: Honoring our veterans

Editor’s note: The following is a message from The Marketplace by TheBlaze.

Every U.S. citizen has a part to play in building up and preserving the nation to which we belong. On November 11, we honor the veterans who have risked their lives so that others may be able to live in peace and freedom.

By that same token, we acknowledge the many people, including the families of veterans as well as patriotic entrepreneurs, who dedicate their lives and livelihoods to supporting and upholding our nation’s heroes. At The Marketplace by TheBlaze, we have the privilege of teaming up with entrepreneurs who are committed to doing just that—and not just on Veterans Day, but all year round.

Minuteman is a watch brand that puts honoring our military and veterans at the forefront of their mission. The company’s goal is to raise funds for our wounded war heroes and to provide work for Americans who would otherwise be out of a job. Minuteman Watches are designed, assembled and tested in the U.S.

Thomas Carey, who founded the company, has always had a soft spot for active and former military, law enforcement and other civic duty servicemen and women.

“My father who is our CFO is a disabled Vietnam vet,” Thomas says. “As such, we are very respectful of those who serve.”

Just like the Minutemen who responded to the call of freedom during the American Revolution, Minuteman Watches represents the same passion, sacrifice and pride that gave birth to our nation.

For every watch sold, Minuteman donates 25 percent of the profit to a charity that assists veterans and their families.

“We do realize what we can contribute is but a drop in the bucket,” Thomas says. “But we do hope it can have a positive impact that is greater than the actual dollar amount donated.”

Another veteran-supporting Marketplace shop owner is Paul Pachmayer, otherwise known as Paracord Paul. This nickname came about when he started making the paracord military accessories he’s now famous for, including braceletskeychainsneck lanyards, and more.

A former member of the U.S. Air Force, Paul believes that quality and service exist best “in the unbeatable USA!” He doesn’t just talk about “supporting the troops.” He walked the walk, and continues to do so.

Paul proudly supports nonprofit organizations dedicated to helping our nation’s veterans, including the Wounded Warrior Project, Mississippi National Gaurd, Paralyzed Veterans of America and Veterans of Foreign Wars.

With Paul and Thomas, we encourage you to support our nation’s heroes, not just on Veterans Day, but at every opportunity. Here are a few ways you might try:

  1. Say “thank you” to a veteran. It’s simple, but goes a long way.
  2. Visit a veteran’s grave and honor it with flowers or flags.
  3. Hang up your American flag and proudly let it wave.
  4. Teach your children about what Veterans Day means.
  5. Have a moment of silence to ponder about those who gave their lives to protect our liberty.
  6. Tie a yellow ribbon around a tree or on your house.
  7. Do a good deed.

Please share any other ways you’ve been able to show your support for our nation’s heroes.

There are new curriculum standards being implemented into schools throughout the nation for health classes that not only go far beyond what's appropriate for young children, but are entrenched in clear political biases, too. Under the standards, third-graders are taught about hormone blockers and endless gender identities, and topics get shockingly graphic for kids as young as 11. Some schools are even teaching their teachers and kids to ignore what parents have to say about these topics. And the worst part may be that many parents are completely unaware what their children are being taught.

Tina Descovich, co-founder of Moms for Liberty, joined "The Glenn Beck Program" to explain exactly what you can ask at your next school board meeting to ensure this "horrifying" curriculum isn't being taught in your kid's school.

It should come as no surprise that a newsworthy story receives more media coverage when released on a Monday than a Friday. The reason is in part due to a large number of news-consuming Americans checking out for the week to focus on their weekend plans rather than the news.

On Monday's radio program, Glenn Beck shared information that President Joe Biden decided to release on Friday — when fewer people would notice — regarding the Climate Finance report. This report is marketed to Americans as "A Roadmap To Build a Climate-Resilient Economy." But Glenn believes the report to be Biden's Great Reset warning shot to banks.

In this clip, Glenn warned that if Americans don't stand together, in eight years we all indeed will own nothing. Watch the clip for the full story. Can't watch? Download the podcast here.

On today's radio program, Glenn Beck was joined by Bill O'Reilly to discuss the top stories of the week.

For O'Reilly, the biggest story this week centered around someone mysteriously missing from mainstream media news reports today: Mark Zuckerberg. Specifically, O'Reilly said it's the 'scandalous' way the Facebook CEO spent nearly $420 million to influence the 2020 election — and did so successfully.

On Thursday's radio program, Grace Smith and her father, Andy, joined Glenn Beck on the phone and provided a first-hand account of Grace's refusal to wear a mask at school.

Smith, 16, began a maskless protest after her school district in Laramie, Wyoming, decided to implement a mask mandate. As a result, Grace received three suspensions, was issued two $500-citations, and was eventually arrested.

"How long were you in jail?" Glenn asked.

Grace said was taken to jail but was never booked nor was she was placed in a jail cell.

Glenn commended Grace's father, Andy, for raising such a "great citizen" and asked if it was Grace's idea to protest. Andy said it was Grace's idea, explaining that they took the position of arguing on the grounds of civil rights rather than the efficacy of wearing a mask.

Grace has since withdrawn from public school and started a home school program. She also told Glenn that she will continue to fight the school district, legally.
