UPDATE: How much money was raised for Operation Underground Railroad in a single day?

After his emotional plea to the audience yesterday, Glenn opened the radio program this morning with a wonderful update on Operation Underground Railroad. In case you missed yesterday’s radio program, Glenn explained that there are nearly 2 million children worldwide currently trapped in sex slavery, and Operation Underground Railroad is a group of former CIA, FBI, Navy SEALs, and Green Berets who travel the globe liberating enslaved children and dismantle the criminal networks.

“I want to read a letter to me that I just received that I think is actually to you,” Glenn said. “This, in case you were listening yesterday, is from Operation Underground Railroad. This is an idea of a friend of mine who came to me and asked me to support them and to help finance them. And I think there is no better cause than saving children from the horrors of child sex slavery. And when you look into it, you won't believe how bad and how huge it is.”

Glenn read a portion of a letter from his friend:

Glenn,

Your listeners have done it. We made over $300,000 yesterday because you talked on the air and your listeners reacted. Because of the money that your listeners sent, we have already deployed two jump teams to rescue victims. That's how fast things can happen. I was ecstatic last night when I was able to call the father of a traffic child who is a U.S. citizen kidnapped and taken to Haiti. He is only 7 years old.

Last night, I called the father of this 7-year-old boy and told him, "We are on our way." He broke down and sobbed. Our first operation in that case has already happened. A second team was deployed to another country now in Central America to rescue children from an identified child brothel there. The target is an American citizen who has lived there for over a decade and produces child rape videos with children as young as 3-years-old. The jump team is wheels down in this country as I write this, and I am already working directly with the foreign officials. This guy's days are numbered. We will report on successes as soon as possible.

Please thank your audience. I am so proud to be counted among them. I am proud to have the report of great Americans who knows what it means to be a great American. It means we liberate the captives. That's what real Americans have always done from the beginning. I have attached a photo from the child that we are going after and also a message from his tearful and thankful father. I have met him a few times now and he is the salt of the Earth. His child was kidnapped from Sunday school during a church service. We have located the captors and we are working with the officials in the country to find the boy. They are waiting for a team to arrive as I write this. We will find him.

Glenn’s friend also included a message from the 7-year-old boy’s father:

Glenn and audience,

Thank you. Before you go to sleep at night, do you have to check on each of your sweet children? Do you have to know that they are safe and sound before you close your eyes? I do. It is why I have not slept since my son was taken. I walk the streets each night, I walk aimlessly through different neighborhoods each night trying to hear his cries. I come home and sit on my porch until I nod off for a few minutes. Then when the sun comes up, I go to work in my orphanage. I can’t sleep in my bed so long as my boy is not in his. I can’t explain the pain.

Months ago I saw some light when I was introduced to Operation Underground Railroad. They came to my home, they met with me, and they began to investigate… And now… They’re coming back, because you and your listeners sent them. Thank you. God bless you and your audience. May God bless you forever. We will find him. I know he is still alive.

- Gus

“This is one of the most remarkable and good things I think I have ever seen. Boy, I can't imagine how frustrating it would be, and I can't manual how satisfying it would be to dedicate your time, full time, to something like Operation Underground Railroad,” Glenn said. “Thank you. If you didn't get a chance to donate, you can now by going to OperationUndergroundRailroad.org and donate tax deductible. This is just a friend of mine. I am not involved in this charity. I have nothing to do with it other than I believe in the man who is running it, and I believe in the cause… We will bring you updates as time goes on.”

A virus has escaped the university labs and is super-spreading through our culture. It's called Critical Race THEORY and what used to be a fringe topic in the academic world is now a dangerous Marxist REALITY infecting our public schools where students are taught the U.S. is a "parasitic system" based on the "invasion" of "white male settlers."

On Glenn TV this week, Glenn Beck exposes how some teachers are being instructed to "cash in on kids' inherent empathy" in order to train them to become "activist intellectuals," starting as early as first grade.

CRT is an absolute toxin to America and Glenn warns that in just one generation the Constitution, freedom, and true equality will be totally destroyed. Yet, any opposition to the spread of this disease is shouted down as racism and bigotry. If Critical Race Theory is not already in your local school curriculum, it will be soon.

Joined by Asra Nomani, Vice President for Strategy and Investigations at Parents Defending Education, Glenn arms you with the facts about CRT so you can stand up to this tyranny in your community.

Ezra Levant, founder of Rebel News, joined Glenn Beck on the radio program to describe the shocking footage he and his team captured of Canadian police harassing and even arresting Rebel News reporters during a protest in Montreal.

Video clips show officers making remarks about the "Jew" reporters and calling Rebel News "Jew media." Reporters are pulled out of crowds, handcuffed, slammed against vehicles and arrested. Some have been fined "thousands and thousands" of dollars "because they had cameras pointed at the police," said Levant.

Another video clip shows Canadian police demanding entrance to a rented Airbnb houseboat without a warrant.

"They the claimed it was an illegal gathering. It was just a B and B," Levant explained. "I told them to get a warrant. I went out there ... and they wouldn't let me back in.... It turned into a ten-hour standoff. They couldn't find a judge willing to give them a search warrant, so to punish us, they called the whole thing a crime scene. They actually wouldn't let any of my team off the boat unless they submitted to a personal search, which is illegal. And the craziest part, is that they arrested one of my guys, took him to jail, and they said this to us: We will hold him in jail until you let us search the Airbnb without a warrant."

Levant said nearly all Canadian media have ignored the insane attacks, warrantless searches and seizures, and the jailing of journalists, and warned Americans to take note and protect our First Amendment rights.

"If you do not protect your First Amendment, if you do not hold those hard-won freedoms, you will be like what we are," he said. "This is your future if you don't protect your First Amendment."

On Monday's episode of "The Glenn Beck Radio Program," Glenn opened up about the tragic death of his brother-in-law, Vincent Colonna Jr., who passed away unexpectedly on April 5. He also shared some of the important thoughts and insights he's learned through the grieving process.

"Last Monday, I was sitting in this chair ... the two-minute warning comes and Stu said to me, 'You ready for the show?'' ... And that's when my wife [Tania] came to the door of the studio here at our house and said, 'I...' and she held the phone up. And then she collapsed on the floor in tears," Glenn began. "Tania's brother had passed. To say this was a shock, is an understatement."

Glenn described his brother-in-law as having "a servant's spirit."

"He was always the guy who lit up the room. He was always the guy helping others. He would never stop, because he was always helping others," Glenn said of Vincent. "He was on the school board. He was a little league coach. He was the soccer coach. He helped build the church. He took care of the lawn of the church. He was constantly doing things, raising money for charity, working over here, helping to organize this. But he was never the guy in the spotlight. He was just the guy doing it, and you had no idea how much he had done because he never talked about it.

"We also didn't know how much mental anguish he was in because he never talked about it. And last Monday morning, after spending Easter with the family ... he killed himself. This is now the third family member of mine that has gone through this. And I keep seeing it play out over and over and over again, in exactly the same way."

Glenn described his thoughts as he, Tania, and her family struggled to come to grips with the devastating loss.

"I learned some really important things as I was watching this wake. I'm seeing these people from all walks of life ... the people that were there, were there because [Vince] made a difference in their life. He was a true servant. As I'm watching this, all that kept going through my mind was, 'by their fruits, ye shall know them.' The fruits of his labor were on display. He was a servant all the time. All the time ... he found a way to love everybody.

"There are two great commandments: Love God with all your heart and mind and soul. And love your neighbor. So those two great commandments boil down to: Love truth. Because that's what God is," Glenn said.

"Love thy neighbor. That's where joy comes from. The opposite of joy is despair, and that is the complete absence of hope ... and how do you find joy? You find joy by rooting yourself in the truth. Even if that's a truth you don't want to accept. Accept the truth," he added. "But we have to stop saying that there's nothing we can do. What are we going to do? Well, here's the first thing: stop living a lie."

After imprisoning a pastor for refusing to follow COVID-19 restrictions, Canadian officials barricaded his church. And when some church members retaliated by tearing down part of the fence, Canadian Mounties arrived in riot gear.

Rebel News Founder Ezra Levant joined Glenn Beck on the radio program to give his insight on the crazy situation. He described the new, armed police presence surrounding GraceLife Church in Edmonton, Alberta, and how it not only encouraged hundreds of protesters to stand with the church in support but forced congregation members underground to worship as well.

What's happening is eerily similar to what occurs everyday in China, Levant says, and it must stop. Who would have thought this type of tyranny would be so close to home?
