Watch Episode 3 ON DEMAND on TheBlaze TV PLUS!

Who will be America’s next great documentary filmmaker? We got closer to an answer this week as the six finalists in the Pursuit of the Truth completion were revealed. The six contestants moving forward were revealed to be:

Joshua Ligairi – Plan 241

Chris Bell – Prescription Thugs

Dan Quigley - As Much Truth As One Can Bear (formerly: The Journey of Mina)

Maggie Nilsson – Mine: The Lost Padres Legend

David Rufful - The Dartmouth Review Pleads Innocent

Kelvin Owens - An American Intervention

So now that we’re out of the interview/pitch phase of the competition, things kicked into high gear as each of the six hopefuls have been charged with filming a two-minute sizzle reel for their documentary. Over the next three weeks, each episode will focus on two of the contestants as they go out in the field and try to get the material they need with limited time and resources. Who has what it takes?

This week, the action focused on Maggie Nilsson and David Rufful as they each went to get the material they needed to convince the judges they were worthy of moving forward in the competition. They each faced unique challenges – from problems with location, equipment, and their own documentary subjects.

In New York City, David Rufful assembled a small team consisting of an interviewer, a cinematographer, and a technician to go out and interview two former Dartmouth Review alums, including 2016: Obama’s America director Dinesh D’Souza. For David and his proposed documentary, the interview with D’Souza is a key piece to bringing a big name to support his idea. After all Obama’s America is the fourth-highest grossing domestic documentary of all time.

Of course, not everything went as planned as David and his team made their way across the streets of New York City. Their first interview subject, Emily Esfahani Smith, kept looking away from the Melanie, the interviewer, and directing her answers at David, resulting in some weird visuals for her interview. Later, the team had trouble navigating the streets of New York City and didn’t anticipate the traffic problems that could have potentially delayed their key interview with D’Souza.

Watch what happened with D’Souza in the clip below:

On the other side of the country, in the California desert, Maggie Nilsson and her crew set off to find a cursed mine filled with hidden treasure.

Sound a little unbelievable? If you were watching the episode, you might just believe that the area is cursed with some bad-luck inflicting juju.

First, the rental car that Maggie used couldn’t make it up the desert road to the mine. Then, she lost the battery to her lighting equipment when she tried to get some of the crucial shots of the interior of the mine. She lost crucial daylight and didn’t get all of the images she set out to capture. And then at the end, her main subject, Myron, was unable to nail a crucial line when he related the legend of the cursed mine that he heard as a young man.

Yeah. Cursed.

Or it could be some of judge’s concerns about her lack of filmmaking experience coming to the forefront.

Watch some of Maggie’s trouble below:

With all the trouble they encountered, will David or Maggie have a shot at moving on to the next round?

Next Week: Josh Ligairi goes to prison and Dan Quigley goes to a bar as they try to become the next great documentary filmmaker!

Once again, the media has failed to carry out even the most cursory investigation when it comes to allegations against Rep. Ilhan Omar (D-Minn.). But investigative journalist David Steinberg has been piecing together "32 new, verifiable, archived pieces of evidence" that indicate Omar conducted the "most extensive spree of state and federal felonies by an elected congressperson in U.S. history."

Steinberg joined Glenn Beck on the radio program to detail how the pieces fit together in his latest report available on TheBlaze.com.

"It's over," Steinberg told Glenn. "There's really nothing left. It's all ... the publicly available documentation that anyone would need to be convinced that, for eight years, [Omar] married her brother to commit immigration fraud. And this marriage fraud also was in the service of education fraud/student loan fraud. And along the line, we have evidence, that she filed at least two years of fraudulent tax returns, possibly eight [years]. We have evidence that she perjured herself eight times during her 2017 divorce from this man. And along the way, of course, we know she was living in public housing. We also know she was likely receiving subsidized child care.

"Essentially, almost everything she put her name on for eight years was perjury or fraud. And it all adds up to likely the most extensive spree of state and federal felonies by an elected congressperson in U.S. history. I really have no other way to put it. That's how big this is."

The extreme-left idea that gender is "fluid" is a complete denial of science, according to sex researcher and neuroscientist Dr. Debra Soh.

Dr. Soh joined Glenn Beck on his latest podcast to talk about her new book, "THE END OF GENDER: Debunking the Myths about Sex & Identity in Our Society" and to offer a hard dose of objective truth about gender and sexual orientation based on scientific facts.

She also explained why she had to leave academia to be able to speak freely about sex and identity, and how — despite being a liberal — the far-left is actively trying to cancel her for saying there are biological differences between men and women.

In February 2020, Glenn Beck and his research team uncovered an alleged multi-billion dollar money laundering scheme which lead to a missing $1.8 billion in U.S. aid sent to Ukraine during the Obama administration, all of which pointed to Igor Kolomoisky, the corrupt Ukrainian billionaire at the center of it all.

If you missed Glenn's February special, "Ukraine: The Final Piece," you can find it here.

This week, the FBI raided the offices of U.S. companies owned by Kolomoisky in Cleveland and Miami. Additionally, the Department of Justice accused the Ukrainian oligarch of stealing billions of dollars from PrivatBank and then laundering the money through a network of companies all over the world. Kolomoisky and partner, Hennadiy Boholyubov, owned PrivatBank until December 2016, when Ukraine nationalized the bank because billions of dollars had gone missing.

Kolomoisky has ties to the Ukrainian gas firm Burisma, former Burisma board member Hunter Biden, and Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelensky, whose phone call with President Donald Trump was central to the Democrats' now-failed impeachment attempt.

On the radio program Friday, Glenn spoke with chief researcher Jason Buttrill about these latest developments.

"Yeah, $1.8 billion of [taxpayer] money that just vanished has now been found, or at least part of it, in Miami and Cleveland," Glenn said.

"I can't believe it's taken this long," Jason responded. "You said in February that [Kolomoisky] was the key to finding out where the money went. And we're talking about $1.8 billion dollars — $1.8 billion! That could finance a small war."

"That money went to PrivatBank — that's Kolomoisky's bank," he continued. "It was later nationalized after they found out all this money was mysteriously going missing. But it went through a bank in Cypress then, poof, it was laundered all over the world. [...] We also showed, in one of the previous shows, that there were wire transfers going from Burisma, which Kolomoisky is the managing principal of, to Hunter Biden."

Glenn and Jason also talked about recent reports from the Department of Homeland Security (DHS) alleging ties between American revolutionaries, such as Antifa, and Marxist terrorists in Syria, which BlazeTV exposed back in June. Find out more here.

The Federal Reserve is now doing two things it has promised never to do: purchasing our national debt, which has never been higher, and printing money, which leads to deflation. As a result, your money in the bank has already lost 10 percent of its value in recent weeks.

On the radio program, Glenn Beck explained how, thanks to the fed's poor decision making, our deficits have another dangerous effect: The United States' credit score has been downgraded, putting our country at risk of becoming an untrustworthy borrower. He also advises Americans to have at least a week's worth of cash at home, because a banking crisis could happen soon.
