Announcing TheBlaze 2014 American-Made Christmas Catalog

Like David approaching Goliath, many small business owners face the holiday season wondering how they’ll ever compete with the giant retail stores that surround them. They won’t have the luxury of tapping plentiful marketing budgets to reach vast concourses of potential shoppers. Instead, these small business owners will have to rely on their passion, ingenuity and skill to be successful; stretching their limited resources and providing superior service to every customer they interact with.

As the finest collection of small businesses, The Marketplace by TheBlaze features unique shops owned by entrepreneurs whose passion for what they do is matched only by the exceptional quality of their goods. Offering merchandise that can’t be found in most stores, these craftsmen, farmers and American-made manufacturers represent the very best of American small businesses who are keeping the heartbeat of our nation going strong while working to achieve their own versions of the American dream.

This year, The Marketplace by TheBlaze has grown to include more than 160 excellent small businesses. Some are family-owned and operated and have been for generations, such as Murphy’s Tree Farm from the Appalachian Mountains of North Carolina. Doug Murphy and his family have been selling American-grown Christmas Frasier Firs since 1986.

Despite stiff competition with the influx of imported artificial trees, the Murphy family has always ensured a great product for each of their customers through the years, while offering free shipping during the holidays.

Others are start-ups that began out of necessity, only to become hallmarks of American-made craftsmanship and quality, like the Anne St. Clair Collection of beautiful porcelain Christmas ornaments. When starting up, Anne Piazza and her husband literally had to sell personal possessions and move out of their condo to finance their business.

In their new accommodations, they dealt with septic problems, a leaky roof and faulty electrical service, but persisted and grew their business, ultimately having their ornaments featured on the Christmas tree in the White House.

New York mom ARRESTED after son shows school nurse his new tattoo

The mother of a 10-year-old boy was arrested in Highland, New York, for allowing her son to get a permanent tattoo on his forearm.

Crystal Thomas was charged with endangering the welfare of a child after a school nurse discovered her son's new tattoo, his name in large block letters, and reported it to school officials. Thomas faces up to one year in prison if convicted, and her two children were both taken away by child protective services. The tattoo artist was also arrested.

In New York, it is illegal for anyone under the age of 18 to get a tattoo, even with parental consent.

In New York, state officials have introduced a bill that would ensure that parents who allow their young children to receive so-called "gender-affirming care" — which may include puberty blockers, hormone therapy, and surgeries — are protected under the law, as well as the physicians who provide such "care."

"Can [you] hear the cognitive dissonance in this story?" asked Glenn Beck on the radio program. "You have got to be kidding me."

Chloe Cole says she began to be "brainwashed" by the gender ideology she saw all over social media when she was only 11 years old. By the time she turned 13, Chloe was convinced that she was a boy, and her parents didn't know how to respond. So they turned to the so-called "experts," who rushed Chloe into life-altering hormone treatments and surgeries. Not only did these experts give "no alternatives" to transitioning, but they lied to Chloe's parents behind her back to scare them into compliance.

Chloe joined "The Glenn Beck Podcast" to share her heartbreaking experience and to expose the dark world of “gender-affirming care,” which she believes no teen should ever be subject to — from hormone blockers to mastectomies: "This is all wrong. I regret every single step, and this shouldn't have happened."

She also had a warning for parents about what led her to make those decisions in the first place, and she provided some key advice on how to react compassionately to situations like hers.

Nearly two years after the January 6 riot at the Capitol, the mystery of who planted two pipe bombs outside the Republican and Democratic National Committee offices remains unsolved. Thankfully, the bombs were found and disabled before they could cause any harm, but with their potential for devastating consequences — not to mention the massive investigations into all things relating to Jan.6 — why does it seem like this story has practically fallen off the face of the earth?

No one in the corporate media has even tried to look into it, and the government's narrative that the bombs were meant to be a diversion for the Capitol riot doesn't make sense when you look at the timeline of events.

So, on this week's episode of "Glenn TV," Glenn Beck broke down the timeline of events that led up to the discovery of the bombs and how the facts appear to point toward one sinister conclusion:

  • Security footage reportedly shows that the two pipe bombs were planted in front of the DNC and RNC the day before the riot.
  • Neither bomb was concealed.
  • Then-Vice President-elect Kamala Harris entered the DNC headquarters at approximately 11: 30 am on January 6.
  • At approximately 12:40 pm on January 6, the first pipe bomb was discovered sitting in plain sight outside the DNC headquarters, raising questions as to why the incoming vice president didn't have better security.
  • The pipe bomb had a one-hour kitchen timer that had apparently stopped with 20 minutes left on the timer. (Remember, the bombs were planted on January 5.)
  • The Secret Service reportedly erased their communications from January 5t and January 6 by "accident."

"It doesn't really hit you unless you look at it as a timeline, and then you're like, 'wait a minute that doesn't seem right.' The unsolved mystery of the pipe bomb has been used by the government to show that January 6 riot was part of a larger coordinated attack ... that the bombs were a diversion to get the Capitol police away from the Capitol," Glenn explained.

"But the bomb had a one-hour timer and it was planted at 8 p.m. the night before. So the bomb would have to go off the night before at about 9 p.m. on January 5. How's that a diversion? It's not physically even possible."
