In The Marketplace: American-Made down to the screws & glue

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

“We’re very proud of the fact that everything in our product is American-made, down to the screws and the glue.” – Kevin Hanville, Georgia Chair Company

When Harry Bagwell II got a call from an 88-year-old woman asking him to fix her 66-year-old rocking chair, he was surprised to say the least. When he saw that the chair, aside from the worn-down runners from persistent rocking, was in near-perfect condition, his surprise turned to amazement.

As the third-generation owner of Georgia Chair Company, Harry knew that throughout its 99-year history, the Gainesville, Georgia-based family business had been committed to producing top-quality furniture. But seeing the chair this woman had purchased from his company more than a half-century earlier was absolutely incredible.

From the appearance of the solid, Southern Red Oak runners, it was clear the woman had put her rocker to use. The runners had lost their original curvature, but otherwise the chair was as strong and sturdy as ever.

Harry readily replaced the runners, refinished the chair free of charge and sent it back to his customer, only to get a phone call several days later with another request—she wanted to give Harry one of her homemade pies.

“Our customers love the quality of our products and how long they last,” Harry said of the experience.

While things like this don’t happen every day, when you’re running an American business that’s been committed to quality for nearly a century, they actually can.

Along with providing excellent products, Georgia Chair is dedicated to building our nation’s economy by first and foremost keeping every part of the manufacturing process 100 percent in the USA.

Some manufacturers are able to say they’re “made in America” because their products are assembled in the USA, while the actual components are produced in China or elsewhere. At Georgia Chair, when they say they’re made in America, they mean it.

“It is important for me to know that there is something still being manufactured in this country, providing jobs and fueling this economy in a very tangible way,” Harry says.

As the business expands, Georgia Chair maintains an emphasis on relationships with local suppliers and customers in nearby communities. All of the wood Georgia Chair uses grows within 300 miles of the company headquarters, allowing them to ensure top quality while staying rooted in American greatness.

Using a manufacturing process that blends old-fashioned, hand-crafted methods of woodworking with modern industrial techniques, every piece of furniture is heirloom-quality. A lot of things can change in 100 years, but at Georgia Chair, faith in God and family tradition are infused into their products, allowing them to transform fine-grained oak heartwood into some of the most beautiful solid-oak furniture on the market.

There's been a lot of talk about the idea of a (peaceful) "national divorce" as the Left continues to abandon everything that made America what it is. Well, this week's guest on "The Glenn Beck Podcast" is all for that divorce. Michael Malice is the author of "The Anarchist Handbook" and host of the podcast "Your Welcome." He joined Glenn to talk about how an anarchist would peacefully take on America's greatest challenges — with a smile.

"My rights are not up for discussion," Malice told Glenn. He explained why his version of America will save America, and why, in spite of anxious talk of "national divorce," he has so much hope for the future.

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.
