From The Marketplace: New American-Made Craftsmen and Manufacturers Join The Marketplace

We’ve expanded The Marketplace and are pleased to introduce some of our newest American-Made shop owners.

 

It’s not easy to manufacture a product in America, but that’s exactly what these exceptional innovators are doing, against all odds. We invite you to learn their struggles, celebrate their triumphs and share in their dreams.

The GunBox

After 10 years of inventing, designing and manufacturing products for other companies, Ryan decided to bring his own idea of a safe gun-storage system to life. He came up with a product that allows people to exercise their right to bear arms while providing a safe way for parents to store a gun, even with small children. Realizing it would be cheaper to outsource, Ryan felt The GunBox would be best if produced in America by Americans.

Jensen’s Sunrise Bedding

As business owners, Sheri and Jay Jensen have experienced many ups and downs together as a family. When the Teton Dam broke and destroyed all their possessions, the Jensens had to rebuild their lives from scratch. Relying on faith and intuition, they developed an American-made bedding business that’s as comfortable as it is successful.

Watson’s Hat Shop

Graduating from college in the middle of the recession, Eric Watson found himself struggling to find a job even though he had two degrees. He turned to craftsmanship and taught himself how to make and restore old-style felt hats. Everything from the beaver fur felt to the ribbon and hatbands are handmade in the USA.

Antique Trunks & Chests

As a trucker out of a job, Matt Douthit turned to the oilfields of Oklahoma for work. When things didn’t go as planned, Matt fell back on his work ethic, love of history and his own two hands to start a business, crafting beautiful, American-made heirloom trunks. Matt handcrafts each of his extremely sturdy trunks with exceptional attention to detail from start to finish.

American Flags

During his campaign, President Joe Biden survived scandal after scandal involving his son Hunter — the Ukraine/Burisma scandal, the laptop scandal, the one involving a stripper from Arkansas and a long-lost child. And yet, after it all appeared to have been swept under the rug, Hunter has now released a memoir — "Beautiful Things."

Filling in for Glenn Beck on the radio program this week, Pat Gray and Stu Burguiere discussed Hunter's "horrible" response when asked on "CBS This Morning" if the laptop seized by the FBI in 2019 belonged to him and reviewed a few segments from his new book, which they agreed raises the question: Is Hunter trying to sabotage his father's career?

Countless corporations — from Delta Air Lines, Coca-Cola, and Porsche to UPS and LinkedIn — are calling out the Georgia voting laws, calling them "restrictive," "racist," and "discriminative." Meanwhile, words like "stakeholder" and "equitable" are starting to show up in their arguments.

On the radio program, Glenn Beck gave the "decoder ring" for what's really going on here, because our society is being completely redesigned in front of our eyes.

There's a reason why all these big businesses are speaking out now, and it has very little to do with genuine ideology, Glenn explained. It's all about ESG scores and forcing "compliance" through the monetization of social justice.

Glenn went on to detail exactly what ESG scores are, how they're calculated, and why these social credit scores explain the latest moves from "woke" companies.

Dallas Jenkins is a storyteller — and he's telling the most important story of all time in a way that many believed was impossible.

Jenkins is the creator of "The Chosen," a free, crowdfunded series about the life of Jesus that rivals Hollywood productions. And Season 2 could not have arrived at a better time — on Easter weekend 2021. Church attendance has dropped, people are hungry for something bigger than all of us, and many are choosing social justice activism, political parties, or even the climate change movement as "religions" over God.

This Easter weekend, Jenkins joined Glenn on the "Glenn Beck Podcast" to discuss the aspects of Jesus that often get overlooked and break through the misconceptions about who Jesus really is to paint a clear picture of why America needs Emmanuel, "God with us," now more than ever.

Award-winning investigative journalist Lara Logan joined Glenn Beck on the radio program this week to argue the Biden administration's border crisis is "enabling" drug cartels, allowing them to exploit migrants, use border wall construction roads, and cross the border much more easily.

Lara, who has witnessed and experienced firsthand some of the worst violence around the world as a war correspondent for CBS News, told Glenn it's "not an overstatement" to call the cartels in Mexico "the most violent and powerful criminal organizations on the face of the earth." And while they're "at war with us, we've been asleep at the wheel."

But Lara also offers solutions that the U.S. can enact to stop these horrific atrocities.

"There's more than 30,000 Mexican civilians who are massacred every year in Mexico by the cartels. And that's just the bodies that the Mexican government owns up to or knows about, right?" Lara said. "There's Mexicans buried in unmarked mass graves all across the country. I mean, everyone knows that the violence of the cartels is not like anything anyone has ever seen before. It even pales in comparison to, at times, to what terrorist groups like ISIS have done."

Lara went on to explain some of the unspeakable acts of violence and murder that occur at the hands of the Mexican cartels — 98% of which go uninvestigated.

"That's not unprosecuted, Glenn. That's uninvestigated," Lara emphasized. "[Cartels] operate with impunity. So the law enforcement guy, the policemen, the marine, the National Guardsmen, who are trying to do the right thing, who are not in the pocket of the cartels — what chance do those guys have? They've got no chance. You know where they end up? In one of those unmarked graves."
