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.

Megyn Kelly pulled her sons out of the private elementary school they attended after she learned that the boys were asked "weekly" if they were still sure they were boys. But that's not all that this "experimental transgender education program" taught.

Megyn joined Glenn Beck on the radio program to tell the story, which she thought had ended when the school apologized, and to talk about what's next for America as our leaders refuse to promote actual psychological support for our kids and instead "parade" transgenderism as the solution to their problems.

"When [my son] was in third grade, I found out they unleashed a three-week experimental transgender education program on these boys, with really inappropriate videos. The kids were confused. These are 8- and 9-year-olds, Glenn. They have no idea what the school is even talking about with the trans thing. They got really in-depth, with really in-your-face videos — and then parents complained. And the school did something it hasn't done in its 400-year history, which was they apologized. Even they realized they had done wrong," Megyn explained.

"But, then I said to my son a year later, so did they ever round back to the trans thing? Like, whatever happened with it? And he said ... they bring it up every week. ... [They ask] how many people here still feel confident that they're a boy? Do you still feel sure you're a boy?" she continued. "This is not support. This is not nonbullying. This is indoctrination. And it's deeply confusing to the children, and wrong."

Megyn went on to give examples of how she's seen trans ideology turn "support, nonbullying, kindness, friendship, allyship, on its head."

"The absolute surrender of the medical community to this insanity is a scourge on this nation. It's disgusting what is happening with our doctors," she added. "There are people who are legitimately transgender, or who have gender dysphoria. And for those people, we should be supportive and they should get the care that they need. But what we've done instead, is taken everyone who expresses any kind of gender confusion and said, you're trans. You're trans. And we have our psychiatrists doing this."

"It's crazy," Megyn asserted. "The fact that we're doing this so willy-nilly in the name of allyship and support, it's abusive. It's criminal."

"Never forget" is not only a tribute to those we've lost, it's a warning that it could happen AGAIN. On "Glenn TV" Wednesday, Glenn Beck looks back 20 years ago to the modern generation's Pearl Harbor moment. A day of infamy we're STILL feeling repercussions from.

But in remembering 9/11, we need to look toward the future because the Biden administration is setting us up for the NEXT 9/11. They bungled the Afghanistan withdrawal, and now we have video of top al Qaeda commanders — who served with Osama bin Laden — returning to the country. But could America survive another terror attack?

Glenn asks former NYC Mayor Rudy Giuliani, the leader who brought America back from the brink. He tells Glenn about the moment he learned the Twin Towers were struck, the actions he took to prevent more terrorism, and if he thinks NYC could survive another attack under Mayor de Blasio's leadership.

Glenn is also joined by Rev. Johnnie Moore, author of "The Next Jihad." He warns that Biden's policies in the Middle East are Obama 2.0, and "if you thought ISIS was bad, you haven't seen anything yet. We must keep our eyes on Iran."

Glenn Beck and The Nazarene Fund have been working tirelessly to evacuate Americans and our allies from Afghanistan, thanks to the U.S. government's failure to do so. But it's been far from easy. A recent Newsweek article, titled "Taliban Holds Up Glenn Beck Group's Planes," addressed some of the most recent challenges. The article claimed that six planes — filled with Americans and SIVs ready for takeoff — were "grounded by the Taliban amid negotiations with the U.S. State Department." So, what's actually going on? Why is the State Department meddling in the rescue? And what are the next steps to get these Americans home?
