Operation Underground Railroad debuts new project to document and expose human trafficking

On radio this morning, viewers were introduced to Tim Ballard, a best selling author who has also dedicated himself to liberating children sex trafficking though his group Operation Underground Railroad. But on TV tonight he went even further, explaining some of the group's methods and how they hope to document the efforts in order to raise awareness for this enormous and often ignored issue.

Before bringing Ballard onto the show, Glenn played a first look of "The Abolitionist", a project that will document the work being done by Operation Underground Railroad.

Much of the work done by Operation Underground Railroad was made by possible donations from TheBlaze audience, who gave an average of $108 per donation after Glenn discussed the group on radio back in November. Over $300,000 was raised that day.

Glenn has been a big advocate for the group and has worked to raise awareness of what they are trying to accomplish. He believes that working with them and helping rescue children from sex slavery will be some of the most important work he does in his life.

Glenn isn't alone in his support for the group. A member of Glenn's team, Mark Mabry, heard about the work being done by Operation Underground Railroad and volunteered to go and help the group and document their actions during a mission to Haiti. You can read Mark's story on the group's website.

The Glenn Beck audience has also played a huge role in the group's success. Because of the donations, close to 40 children have already been rescued.

“In the first two months of our operation, we were able to save 35 children,” Ballard said told Glenn. “There’s 40 more children on deck that we’ve already seen that we’re about to pull out. These are children that would not have been saved if it were not for your audience.”

In fact, Ballard had the family of the first child his group rescued record a special message for Glenn.

“The little girl, the 6-year-old girl, she was being trafficked,” Ballard said. “We got her out. The mom had been trafficked as a child, so it was this vicious cycle. We ended the cycle. It’s over for them.”

During the interview, Ballard explained how this group uses cutting edge software to show in real-time where people are sharing child pornography. Their website explains that they have teamed up with a data mini company to use the Child Protection System (CPS), "a law enforcement tool that locates child pornographers who trade in child rape videos online."

The site continues:

CPS has been utilized by the Internet Crimes Against Children Task Force and has been responsible for tens of thousands of arrests in the United States and for the rescue of countless child victims.

Operation Underground Railroad is licensed to deliver this powerful tool to nations of the world who currently do not posses it. O.U.R. Jump Team members conduct extensive training to government officials on the software, allowing them to utilize it to rescue children in their own countries and to apprehend the perpetrators.

 

Glenn Beck: Why MLK's pledge of NONVIOLENCE is the key to saving America

Listen to the Rev. Dr. Martin Luther King Jr.'s pledge of nonviolence and really let it sink in: "Remember always that the nonviolent movement seeks justice and reconciliation — not victory."

On the radio program, Glenn Beck shared King's "ten commandments" of nonviolence and the meaning behind the powerful words you may never have noticed before.

"People will say nonviolent resistance is a method of cowards. It is not. It takes more courage to stand there when people are threatening you," Glenn said. "You're not necessarily the one who is going to win. You may lose. But you are standing up with courage for the ideas that you espouse. And the minute you engage in the kind of activity that the other side is engaging in, you discredit the movement. You discredit everything we believe in."

Take MLK's words to heart, America. We must stand with courage, nonviolently, with love for all, and strive for peace and rule of law, not "winning."

Conservatives are between a rock and a hard place with Section 230 and Big Tech censorship. We don't want more government regulation, but have we moved beyond the ability of Section 230 reforms to rein in Big Tech's rising power?

Rachel Bovard, Conservative Partnership Institute's senior director of policy, joined the Glenn Beck radio program to give her thoughts and propose a possibly bipartisan alternative: enforcing our existing antitrust laws.

Dan Bongino, host of The Dan Bongino Show, is an investor in Parler — the social media platform that actually believes in free speech. Parler was attacked by Big Tech — namely Amazon, Apple, and Google — earlier this week, but Bongino says the company isn't giving up without a fight. In fact, he says, he's willing to go bankrupt over this one.

Dan joined Glenn Beck on the radio program to detail what he calls a "smear" campaign behind the scenes, and how he believes we can move forward from Big Tech's control.

"You have no idea how bad this was behind the scenes," Dan told Glenn. "I know you're probably thinking ... well, how much worse can the attack on Parler have gotten than three trillion-dollar companies — Amazon, Apple, and Google — all seemingly coordinated to remove your business from the face of the Earth? Well, behind the scenes, it's even worse. I mean, there are smear campaigns, pressure campaigns ... lawyers, bankers, everyone, to get this company ... wiped from the face of the earth. It's incredible."

Dan emphasized that he would not give up without a fight, because what's he's really fighting for is the right to free speech for all Americans, regardless of their political opinions, without fear of being banned, blacklisted, or losing jobs and businesses.

"I will go bankrupt. I will go absolutely destitute before I let this go," he said. "I have had some very scary moments in my life and they put horse blinders on me. I know what matters now. It's not money. It's not houses. It's none of that crap. It's this: the ability to exist in a free country, where you can express your ideas freely."

Joe Biden's administration is getting ready for something historic, but we're all being distracted. And now that Biden has hired at least 14 former or current executives from Big Tech — experts at colluding to censor unflattering news about Biden — Americans must be laser-focused on what's coming.

On January 20, the most corrupt president in American history will be inaugurated, and it looks like some of his cabinet choices were picked specifically so everything just – poof – goes away. The administration nominees appear to be all about preserving corruption, crony capitalism, and executing a Great Reset. Those same people also have one more thing in common: Ukraine.

On his Wednesday night special this week, Glenn exposes their radical agenda in their own words and gives U.S. senators the questions they must ask before confirming corrupt nominees to some of the highest offices in the country.
