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.”

Watch the message below:

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.

 

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?

Watch the video below to hear Ezra describe the religious persecution taking place in Canada.

Enough prayers? Why is supposed Catholic Joe Biden suggesting that Congress ought to stop praying for after someone commits acts of gun violence?

On Friday, Stu Burguiere and Pat Gray filled in for Glenn and discussed President Joe Biden's remarks during his speech on gun control. "Enough prayers. Time for some action," Biden said. Stu and Pat were surprised how dismissive Biden appeared to be on the idea of prayer.

Just days after Canadian pastor James Coates was released from prison for refusing to bow to COVID-19 lockdown restrictions, several police officers showed up at another church to ensure restrictions were being followed. But Polish pastor Artur Pawlowski of the Cave of Adullam Church in Alberta, Canada, knew his rights, telling the cops not to come back until they had a warrant in hand.

Filling in for Glenn Beck on the radio program this week, Pat Gray and Stu Burguiere played a video of the interaction.

"Please get out. Please get out of this property immediately. Get out!" Pawlowski can be heard yelling at the six officers who entered his church.

"Out! Out! Out! Get out of this property immediately until you come back with a warrant," he continued. "Go out and don't come back. I don't want to talk to you. You Nazis, Gestapo is not allowed here! ... Nazis are not welcome here! Do not come back you Nazi psychopaths. Unbelievable sick, evil people. Intimidating people in a church during the Passover! You Gestapo, Nazi, communist fascists! Don't you dare come back here!"

One of the most dangerous existential threats to the United States is Critical Race Theory, or CRT. As Glenn Beck has exposed over the past year, CRT is gaining momentum and has been preached in our universities for a while now.

Then last August, leaked documents revealed that Marxism, activist ideology of Black Lives Matter, is making its way into grade school classrooms across the country. And since then, things have only gotten more intense.

On next week's Wednesday night special, Glenn will expose the new ways progressives are systematically indoctrinating our kids and culture with this dangerous ideology. But first, it's crucial that you know what your kids may already be learning.

"What I'm about to show you is just the beginning," Glenn said, introducing the leaked documents.

"I found it shocking that Black Lives Matter supporters have developed lesson plans that start from preschool all the way up to the 12th grade," he continued. "Do you know the money it would take to tailor things ... and get it out to the schools and the unions for each age, to be able to brainwash the kids on Marxism and how to destroy capitalism by using race, sexual orientation, and gender?

"Our children don't stand a chance," Glenn added later. "They're not being taught anything except how to be radical activists. What the hell has happened?"
