1791 Supply & Co. introduces The George Washington Positioning Life Guard Flag Quilt Kit

For years, fans have been sending the Beck family handmade quilts. Some quilts are taken to the Beck's house in Dallas, while others are kept around the studios. Glenn has taken a few favorites to his ranch, and they kept the family warm during the cold Christmas break. Glenn loves them for the warmth they provide, for the stories they tell about the people who made them, and for the time and dedication put in by each person who creates them. That's why he asked 1791 to offer families the experience of creating and sharing a quilt through their store, one not only made of the highest quality but that taught history as well.

Glenn just needed to find the right partners to help 1791 develop the highest quality quilt, and in the heart of the Mountain West while on vacation last summer, Glenn found the answer in a small, boutique quilt company.

Today, 1791 Supply & Co., in partnership with Suppose Quilt Boutique, is proud unveil the George Washington Positioning Life Guard Flag Quilt Kit.

The Flag

With 13 stars arranged upon a blue background, the George Washington Positioning Flag served as Washington's headquarters standard and was with him wherever he went. It saw all of the action that Washington saw, and was present at some of the biggest moments in America's early days.

"I fly this flag at my house," said Glenn. The phrase "Life Guard", which adorns 1791 patches with the flag pattern as well as the quilt kit, represents those "who will stand and preserve the history and the life of what George Washington fought and died for – what he spent his whole life living for."

The Valley Forge Historical Society in Pennsylvania currently keeps an original version of the flag.

The Story

Last summer, Glenn had just finished raising his positioning flag at the ranch, when Tania came home with a new discovery. She had found a small quilt shop in a nearby town that was run by a kind and caring group of people: Suppose Quilt Boutique.

The staff at Suppose didn't know Glenn from his radio or TV show, and when he arrived at the store with Tania he simply introduced himself as the guy staying in the mountains just outside of town.

Not long after stepping into the shop, the creative gears in Glenn's head started to turn quicker and quicker. He asked Kathy and Jo, who run Suppose, if they would help him design a quilt for 1791. The pair was skeptical. They had declined similar requests in the past, but they found themselves buying into Glenn's vision.

Over the next few weeks, the 1791 team and Suppose went back and forth looking at fabric swatches, exchanging design sketches, and finalizing a plan. Kathy and Jo got to work on a prototype, and included plenty of special touches, including hand-quilting the stars and doing the applique by hand.

Once the prototype of the quilt was delivered to the Beck family, Kathy and Jo got to work on designing a quilt kit for 1791 so families could share in the experience themselves at home.

"For three years I asked my wife if she would make a quilt for me, but she needed a kit," Glenn explained. Needless to say, the kit makes it possible for anyone to make the same quilt that the Beck family has at their ranch.

Glenn has personally worked hard to make sure that every piece of the quilt kit is exceptional, overseeing all of the details of the project. From the packaging to the instructions, which feature a Valley Forge Map on the back that can be displayed at home to compliment the quilt itself, Glenn has ensured that the quilt kit meets and exceeds the high standards of 1791.

"1791 is really about quality. Making everything different, better, and telling history," Glenn said.

Earlier this year, Coca-Cola became the poster child for how a corporation could shove leftist ideologies onto its consumers. The company suspended advertising on Facebook in a push to censor former President Donald Trump, published a manifesto about racial equity, and demanded all legal teams working for Coke meet certain diversity quotas.

But now, after Trump, Sen. Ted Cruz (R-Tx.), Sen. Rand Paul (R-Ky.), and many other conservative voices called for a boycott of the company's products, Coca-Cola appears to be shifting directions.

The Washington Examiner reported that the company issued a conciliatory statement after conspicuously failing to appear on a published list of hundreds of corporations and individuals that signed a statement denouncing the Georgia voting bill.

"We believe the best way to make progress now is for everyone to come together and listen respectfully, share concerns, and collaborate on a path forward. We remained open and productive conversations with advocacy groups and lawmakers who may have differing views," the company said. "It's time to find common ground. In the end, we all want the same thing – free and fair elections, the cornerstone of our democracy."

Then last week, Coca-Cola Co.'s new general counsel, Monica Howard Douglas, told members of the company's global legal team that the diversity initiative announced by her predecessor, Bradley Gayton, is "taking a pause for now." Gayton resigned unexpectedly from the position on April 21, after only eight months on the job, to serve as a strategic consultant to Chairman and CEO James Quincey.

"Why is Coca-Cola 'taking a pause' on all of these? Because you have been standing up," Glenn Beck said on the radio program Monday. "You and others have been standing up. Your voice, it's the power of one. Your voice makes a difference."

This week on "The Glenn Beck Podcast," civil rights activist and Woodson Center founder Bob Woodson joined Glenn to call out the leftists in the "race grievance industry," like the Rev. Al Sharpton and Black Lives Matter, Inc., who, he says, are "profiting off the misery of their people."

Woodson lived through the appalling segregation laws of the last century and has a much different message about what it means to be "oppressed" than the so-called "anti-racist" activists today.

Woodson said he believes the real struggle for impoverished minority communities "is not racial." He argued that leftists "at the top" derive "moral authority" by claiming to represent "so called marginalized groups," while they prosper at the expense of those "at the bottom."

"There's nothing worse than self-flagellating guilty white people and rich, angry black people who profit off the misery of their people," Woodson said.

"I call what Sharpton and some of those are doing is worse than bigotry. It's treason. It's moral treason against their own people," he added. "The only time you hear from them is when a white police officer kills a black person, which happens maybe 20 or 21 times a year, but 6,000 blacks are killed each year by other blacks. So, in other words, their message is black lives only matter when taken by someone white, which means you are betraying the black community when you turn your back on 20 children that are slaughtered and you don't march in that community and demand that those killers be turned over to the police."

'The problem is not racial," Woodson asserted. "The problem is the challenge of upward mobility. Any time you generalize about a group of people, blacks, whites, Native American, and then you try to apply remedies, it always benefits those at the top at the expense of those at the bottom. ... It's a bait and switch game where you're using the demographics of the worst of these, to get resources that helps the best of these, or those who are prospering at the top. So, if I was the president, I would say an end to the race grievance business, that America should concentrate on the moral and spiritual free fall that is consuming people at the bottom."

Following President Joe Biden's first joint address to Congress, Glenn Beck joined fellow BlazeTV host and author of the new book, "American Marxism," Mark Levin to expose what they called the "Liar-In-Chief's" radical plans for our country and to explain why the far Left's proposals and programs are really a "frontal attack" on our Constitution, our country, and our way of life.

"Substantively, this is a frontal attack on our Constitutional system of limited government. It is a frontal attack on our capitalist system. He's basically throwing out all the bromides for the radical left groups that now form the base of the modern Democrat Party. And I make the case that ... this is Marxist bullcrap in its broadest sense," Levin stated.

"Here we are, a country now where one man can get up in the middle of the night and make a list of everything he wants to do to the country," he added, speaking figuratively. "It's like an unreality where we're living in separate worlds ... the whole thing is a fraud."

Watch the video clip below to hear Levin expose the lies and misinformation in Biden's speech and explain why he believes the true message is absolutely chilling for the future of our nation:

After months of delays and COVID-19 excuses, President Biden finally delivers his address to the joint session of Congress. It is a truly historic moment, as only a few hundred members of Congress received an invite. While some have compared this speech to JFK's moon landing challenge, it will likely be more like FDR's New Deal nightmare. Will Speaker Pelosi continue her tradition of ripping up the president's speech? Will VP Harris cackle to a quiet audience?

Glenn Beck teams up with fellow BlazeTV host Mark Levin, author of the new book "American Marxism," to take on the progressive plans that could completely transform our economy and our way of life. Steve Deace, BlazeTV host and author of "Faucian Bargain," joins to discuss why it's not enough for conservatives to just lament the dangerous Democrat agenda; we must activate against the woke infection of our institutions. Plus, a power panel to rival CNN talking heads: Stu Burguiere, BlazeTV host of "Stu Does America," and Jason Buttrill, head researcher and writer for Glenn Beck.
