Kentucky Rigid, $190.00

While running a real estate investment management company, Dave Mercer hired a graphic designer who also worked with denim. It was around this time that Dave realized none of the men’s jeans being produced seemed to be as comfortable as he recalled from growing up. He decided to do something about it by creating a new line of jeans―traditional, comfortable and made in the USA

Classic Building Fort Play Set, $29.95

On a warm August day in 1930, a horse-drawn wagon made the first delivery of original Roy Toy wooden toys. Roy Dennison loved seeing the intrigue and excitement kids and parents had for his handmade construction sets. He would often say, “There’s no greater feeling for a parent than helping their child explore their own imagination.” Today, this same passion and craftsmanship is carried on by Roy’s grandson, Bruce, who continues making great toys here in the USA.

Bullet Pen – Brass, $30.00

John Johnson took on his first self-employed venture, mowing lawns. While in junior high school, he became fascinated with woodworking―especially wood-turning on a lathe. Eventually, John used his hobby to build a business named after Jacob Shallus, the scribe of the U.S. Constitution. Today, John continues to craft some of the finest quality American-made fountain and rollerball pens on the market.

On Friday, Mercury One hosted the 2022 ProFamily Legislators Conference at The American Journey Experience. Glenn Beck shared this wisdom with legislators from all across our nation. We must be on God’s side.

Winston Marshall assumed that he would be playing banjo with Mumford & Sons well into his 60s, but one tweet — simply recommending Andy Ngo's book — was all it took for the woke mob to attack. At first, Winston apologized, saying he "was certainly open to not understanding the full picture." But after doing some research, not to mention a whole lot of soul-searching, his conscience "really started to bother" him.

On the latest episode of "The Glenn Beck Podcast," Winston opened up about the entire scandal, what he discovered in the wake of his cancellation, and why he's decided to put truth over career.

"I looked deeper and deeper into the topic, and I realized I hadn't been wrong [when] I'd called the author brave," Winston said of Ngo. "Not only was he brave, he'd been attacked by Antifa mobs in Oregon, and he was then attacked again ... he's unquestionably brave. And so my conscience really started to bother me ... I felt like I was in some way excusing the behavior of Antifa by apologizing for criticizing it. Which then made me feel, well, then I'm as bad as the problem because I'm sort of agreeing that it doesn't exist," he added.

"Another point, by the way, that I found it very frustrating, was that that left-wing media in this country and in my country don't even talk about [Antifa]. We can all see this footage. We see it online," Winston continued. "But they don't talk about it, and that's part of my, I think, interest initially in tweeting about Andy's book. Because I think people need to see what's going on, and it's a blind spot there. ... CNN and MSNBC, they don't cover it. Biden in his presidential election said it was just 'an idea' that didn't exist. I mean, did he not see the courthouse in Oregon being burnt down?"
