Glenn explains how an undercover federal agent opened his eyes to the horrors of child sex trafficking

Glenn began the radio program this morning with a startling story about child sex trafficking. There are nearly 2 million children trapped in sex slavery worldwide, and Glenn encouraged his listeners to become a part of the “new abolitionist” movement by supporting Operation Underground Railroad – a group of former CIA, FBI, Navy SEALs, and Green Berets who travel the globe freeing children from an inconceivable fate.

Glenn first learned of the Operation Underground Railroad when a longtime friend of his revealed the truth about his identity: He is a federal agent who works to free children from international trafficking rings. While his friend explained that the United States government is leading the global fight against such atrocities, resources are still limited. Operation Underground Railroad is a private organization that devotes 100% of its resources to “liberate enslaved children and dismantle the criminal networks.”

One harrowing example involved a 5-year-old boy and his 10-year old sister who were smuggled across the U.S./Mexico border each weekend. They were forced to attend “drug cartel parties,” where they were “horribly abused” and used as “sex toys.” Fortunately, these children were saved.

“A miracle did happen because my friend was onto this ring… He goes to these parties. He goes to these different countries, and he poses as a rich American that is buying children to bring them back into the United States to sell them into slavery here. And so he was at this party and he said, ‘I want that one and that one and that one and that one.’ And as soon as the money changed hands, [federal agents] drop out of the ceiling and they save the children,” Glenn explained. “The little boy was confused. As my friend went to go grab him, he thought he was one of the monsters then he ran to the [agents]. When [they] explained to him that he was the guy who led the team, the little boy ran to my friend and grabbed onto his neck and [my friend] said, ‘Glenn, he wouldn't let go.’”

One of the most vulnerable areas in the world for these crimes is actually in the Unite States. A stretch of the border between Arizona and Mexico is virtually lawless and seldom policed by either country, allowing an easy access point for traffickers.

“Phoenix is now the kidnap capital of the world. Do you know that? More than Bogota, Colombia. Phoenix, Arizona. What do you think happens to these children,” Glenn asked somberly. “The evil that is on our border is not just on our border. It's all around the country and all around the world… These kids are kidnapped from our country and they are shipped all around the world.”

Glenn explained that his friend showed him a file filled with photos of American citizens who are missing. Incredibly, the man explained that the U.S. government actually knows where most of these people are.

One of the reasons Glenn’s friend opened up to him about his identity is because he needs help. He attempted to pitch a major television network a show that would focus on the stories and rescues of some of these children. The network was only concerned with telling the story – not saving the children – so Glenn’s friend picked up his things and walked out of the meeting. Given Glenn’s platform with TheBlaze TV, his friend came to him. Unfortunately, Glenn simply does not have the money or resources to produce a show – a reality that has been hard to swallow.

“He came to me and I said to him, ‘I don't have that kind of money.’ And so we have gone back and forth in my own company this summer trying to figure out exactly how we could do this, and we can't,” Glenn said emotionally. “And maybe someday we will be able to do it, but the important thing is that we rescue the children, as many as we possibly can.”

Instead, Glenn called on his audience to help get the message out about the work of this organization. “I would like to introduce you to a website called, and I would like you to bring this to your churches and I would like you to inform yourself and others, as many as you can,” he said. “I'd like you to put this on your Facebook and I'd like you to tweet this… I think there are great and powerful blessings to anybody who can help free these children.”

Operation Underground Railroad will show you exactly how they are going to rescue these children and what it will take, but we need your tax-free dollars… If you are looking for something that is important and you believe you can help, would you please, a dollar, or anything you can, or at least just spread the word,” Glenn said emphatically. “I don't think there is anything more important than this… It may be one of the reasons why you were born.”

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?
