Glenn's Merchandising Manager Shares Details of Upcoming Event at Mercury Studios

A rare opportunity to visit Glenn's studios is coming up this Father's Day weekend. Mercury Studios is opening its doors for a 2-day "show and shop" event featuring an exclusive collection of authentic, American-made clothing and accessories from 1791 Supply & Co.

Glenn's merchandising manager, Jessica Sanchez, joined The Glenn Beck Program Friday to share the details.

"People haven't had an opportunity to try on the clothes, actually see it, touch it, feel it before they buy," she said. "This is going to be one of those rare opportunities that our fans can come out and try on the clothes and really pick and choose what they like from what fits them well."

Get all the details here.

Listen to the segment (starting at 8:45) or read the transcript below.

DOC: So let's talk about 1791 because you have something really cool going on not this weekend but next weekend.

JESSICA: The weekend of Father's Day.

DOC: 17th and 18th. What's going on?

JESSICA: So last year you guys know that we had the museum, and we opened up our doors, and we had people come in, and it was absolutely great.

DOC: Glenn did in the studio here.

JESSICA: Yes, in the studio here. So this year, we didn't plan a summer event, so I was, like, what can we do? How can we get people to come to the studio and hang out with us, meet the staff.

BRAD: Bring us food --

JESSICA: No, don't bring us food. You know we cannot accept anything. But come and hang out with us. I'm managing 1791, so we decided we were going to just have a show and shop. So it's going to be a fun weekend of coming out, seeing all of the 1791 clothes. We have a lot of people that purchase online. We've done really great the last three-years. But people haven't had a opportunity to try on the clothes, actually see it, touch it, feel it before they buy. So this is a -- this is going to be, like, one of those rare opportunities that our fans can come out and try on the clothings and really pick and choose what they like from what fits them well.

DOC: Okay. So you'll have all of that there. It's in the studio, so you're going to see the studio as well.

JESSICA: And it's free.

DOC: Oh, it's free. Even better.

BRAD: Oh, then I'll be there.

JESSICA: But you still have to buy things.

DOC: You were modeling; right? The new 1791 thongs. You were doing the --

BRAD: The hat on. I put the hat on, and I am wearing the --

DOC: Oh, I didn't realize I was supposed to put it on. I can do that too. There you go. I do like the hat. So it's both Saturday and Sunday?

JESSICA: Saturday we're doing from noon to 6:00.

DOC: Okay.

JESSICA: And then Sunday we'll start a little bit later at 2:00. Give people to go to church, hang out with their dad, maybe bring your dad here afterwards after lunch. So 2:00 to 6:00.

DOC: This is pretty sneaky. Because although dads don't care as much about clothes.

JESSICA: It's a good gift.

DOC: But dad gets to see the studio, which is pretty damn cool. A lot of cool things here. Like, dad, go check out the studio, happy Father's Day.

BRAD: Wait until you see the submarine.

DOC: That's right. The submarine, robots, we've been moving them around all week. So awesome. How do they find out more? Just pretty much show up?

JESSICA: Yeah, just show up here at the studios, and we'll just be able to -- checking people in. We're also going to have food trucks, music, a coffee bar.

DOC: And of course Brad modeling the 1791 thongs.

JESSICA: Yeah, so every hour on the hour we're going to dim the lights, start the music, and Brad's going to be modeling.

BRAD: I look best in a --

DOC: No. No. Dimmer. Dimmer all the way. Dark. Think dark.

So it's Irving, Texas. If you do a Google search, or you're on your map, you'll see it come up.

JESSICA: Go to our Facebook page. If you go to the 1791 Facebook page, we have an event on there. Just let us know if you're coming. We want to get a roundabout number of who we think are going to come. I'm hoping 1,000 people. So y'all hear me. 1,000 people over the weekend. That's my goal.

DOC: She set the standard. Good deal.

JESSICA: But let us know and then message on there. I'm responding back to everybody's message messages.

DOC: You don't have to. So if it's last minute, you can still come. But it would be nice so she has a general idea to help plan. But it's both Saturday and Sunday the 17th and 18th of June. Noon to 6:00 on Saturday, 2:00 to 6:00 on Sunday. Mercury studios in Dallas. Show up and, again, check out the 1791 Facebook page. I love 1791 and Glenn's history with it. And I thought it was great until somebody comes up with 1792.

BRAD: Exactly. Because that's one more.

DOC: That's perfect until somebody comes up with it. 1793, which is really, really interesting. Thank you so much. Appreciate you joining us. Doc Thompson in for Glenn Beck on the Glenn Beck Program.

Terry Trobiani owns Gianelli's Drive Thru in Prairie Grove, Illinois, where he put up a row of American flags for the Fourth of July. But the city claimed he was displaying two of them improperly and issued him a $100 ticket for each flag.

Terry joined Glenn Beck on the radio program Tuesday to explain what he believes really happened. He told Glenn that, according to city ordinance, the American flag is considered "ornamental" and should therefore have been permitted on a federal holiday. But the city has now classified the flag as a "sign."

"Apparently, the village of Prairie Grove has classified the American flag as a sign and they've taken away the symbol of the American flag," Terry said. "So, as a sign, it falls under their temporary sign ordinance, which prohibits any flying, or any positioning of signs on your property — and now this includes the American flag. [...] The only way I could fly the American flag on my property is if I put it on a permanent 20 to 30-foot flagpole, which they have to permit."

Terry went on to explain how the city is now demanding an apology for his actions, and all after more than a year of small-business crushing COVID restrictions and government mandates.

"COVID was tough," Terry stated. "You know, we're in the restaurant business. COVID was tough on us. We succeeded. We made it through. We cut a lot of things, but we never cut an employee. We paid all our employees. I didn't take a paycheck for a year just to keep our employees on, because it was that important to me to keep things going. And, you know, you fight for a year, and you beat a pandemic, and then you have this little municipality with five trustees and a president, who just have no respect for small businesses. And right now, what I see is they have no respect for the republic and the United States ... I think it's terrible. The direction that government, at all levels, have taken us to this point, it's despicable."

The Biden administration is now doing everything it can to censor what it has decided is COVID-19 "misinformation." But Glenn Beck isn't confident that the silencing of voices will stop there.

Yeonmi Park grew up in North Korea, where there is no freedom of speech, and she joined Glenn to warn that America must not let this freedom go.

"Whenever authoritarianism rises, the first thing they go after is freedom of speech," she said.

Most self-proclaimed Marxists know very little about Marxism. Some of them have all the buzzwords memorized. They talk about the exploits of labor. They talk about the slavery of capitalist society and the alienation caused by capital. They talk about the evils of power and domination.

But they don't actually believe what they say. Or else they wouldn't be such violent hypocrites. And we're not being dramatic when we say "violent."

For them, Marxism is a political tool that they use to degrade and annoy their political enemies.

They don't actually care about the working class.

Another important thing to remember about Marxists is that they talk about how they want to defend the working class, but they don't actually understand the working class. They definitely don't realize that the working class is composed mostly of so many of the people they hate. Because, here's the thing, they don't actually care about the working class. Or the middle class. They wouldn't have the slightest clue how to actually work, not the way we do. For them, work involves ranting about how work and labor are evil.

Ironically, if their communist utopia actually arrived, they would be the first ones against the wall. Because they have nothing to offer except dissent. They have no practical use and no real connection to reality.

Again ironically, they are the ultimate proof of the success of capitalism. The fact that they can freely call for its demise, in tweets that they send from their capitalistic iPhones, is proof that capitalism affords them tremendous luxuries.

Their specialty is complaining. They are fanatics of a religion that is endlessly cynical.

They sneer at Christianity for promising Heaven in exchange for good deeds on earth — which is a terrible description of Christianity, but it's what they actually believe — and at the same time they criticize Christianity for promising a utopia, they give their unconditional devotion to a religion that promises a utopia.

They are fanatics of a religion that is endlessly cynical.

They think capitalism has turned us into machines. Which is a bad interpretation of Marx's concept of the General Intellect, the idea that humans are the ones who create machines, so humans, not God, are the creators.

They think that the only way to achieve the perfect society is by radically changing and even destroying the current society. It's what they mean when they say things about the "status quo" and "hegemony" and the "established order." They believe that the system is broken and the way to fix it is to destroy, destroy, destroy.

Critical race theory actually takes it a step farther. It tells us that the racist system can never be changed. That racism is the original sin that white people can never overcome. Of course, critical race theorists suggest "alternative institutions," but these "alternative institutions" are basically the same as the ones we have now, only less effective and actually racist.

Marx's violent revolution never happened. Or at least it never succeeded. Marx's followers have had to take a different approach. And now, we are living through the Revolution of Constant Whining.

This post is part of a series on critical race theory. Read the full series here.

Americans are losing faith in our justice system and the idea that legal consequences are applied equally — even to powerful elites in office.

Rep. Devin Nunes (R-CA) joined Glenn Beck on the radio program to detail what he believes will come next with the Durham investigation, which hopefully will provide answers to the Obama FBI's alleged attempts to sabotage former President Donald Trump and his campaign years ago.

Rep. Nunes and Glenn assert that we know Trump did NOT collude with Russia, and that several members of the FBI possibly committed huge abuses of power. So, when will we see justice?
