Tim Ballard explains the work Operation Underground Railroad is doing to combat child sex trafficking

On radio this morning, Tim Ballard joined Glenn to discuss the work his organization, Operation Underground Railroad, is doing to combat child sex trafficking around the world. While you may be familiar with Ballard’s work as an author, he explained that, in many respects, he has actually been living a double life. Writing may be his day job, but his real passion is rescuing children.

“I'm glad that I can actually say your name on the air and show your face on the air,” Glenn said. “Can I just start there? How weird was it to live a double life and to lie to people?”

“More than weird. I think it was hard. It's a lonely world. I can't tell people, even my wife. I can't tell her everything that I see and do,” Tim said. “And I flashback to nights when I'm kissing my kids in their beds, and they're sleeping, and almost a pang of guilt because I know there's this other kid I haven't found yet or a group of children. And there are nights where I would sit on my stairs and just cry.”

There are nearly 2 million children trapped in sex slavery worldwide, and Tim said his team has worked to rescue children as young as 3- and 4-years old.

When I was first asked to do this, I said, ‘No,’ I said, ‘I can't do this.’ And it was after a lot of prayer and fasting and confirmation I said, ‘I need to do this.’ So I have been helped in that way,” Tim said. “When I go home, I generally can turn it off, but… these kids we are talking about are 7-, 8-, 9-, 10-years-old, even younger sometimes. These are the kids being abused.”

On the Operation Underground Railroad website, the process used to find and extricate these children is laid out. Tim’s team of former CIA, Navy Seals, and special agents work closely with local law enforcement and government to locate and extricate the trafficked children from their captors.

“This is an important point. We always work with law enforcement. We always come through the front door,” Tim said. “We want to make sure these traffickers and monsters go to jail, so we go into these countries, offer the services, go undercover, offer our software, and we stay till the job is done.”

On tonight’s Glenn Beck Program, Tim and other members of the Operation Underground Railroad team will join Glenn to further explain and demonstrate the work they are doing.

Tonight at 5:00 on the Glenn Beck Program, I will show you the video that's been made of some of these sting operations, and it's going to tear your heart out in a good way,” Glenn explained. “It is going to show you what is happening to our children, how young these children are, and then the rescue of children. And you are going to meet [these] individual[s] face-to-face.”

Ultimately, Tim expressed his gratitude to Glenn and the entire audience for their support and prayers.

“I want to thank you, Glenn, I want to thank your audience… We have resuced dozens of kids in the last couple of months. We have only been in existence since last year. Thank you, Glenn's audience,” Tim said. “These children who we have saved have no voice. So we have to be their voice, and you have allowed us to do that. You have allowed us to rescue them… Thank you so much.

Everything comes down to the two Senate runoffs in Georgia. If we lose both races, we lose the country. Democrats know this and are pouring in millions to usher in a Marxist agenda.

As the Left tries to hide how radical the two candidates really are, Glenn takes us inside the Democrat war room to expose the wolf in pastor's clothing, Raphael Warnock, and America's Justin Trudeau, Jon Ossoff. Socialism, the Green New Deal, and "defund the police" are all on the table. And Glenn warns of what's to come if conservatives don't activate: Chuck Schumer will weaponize the Senate, and the radical Left will launch an all-out assault to ravage the Constitution.

Sen. Ted Cruz (R-Texas) joined the "Glenn Beck Radio Program" to explain how mail-in ballots are typically disqualified during recounts at a far higher rate than in-person, Election Day ballots, and why this is "good news" for President Donald Trump's legal battle over the election.

"One of the things that gives the greatest cause for optimism is, this election ... there's a pretty marked disparity in terms of how the votes were distributed. On Election Day, with in-person voting, Donald Trump won a significant majority of the votes cast on in-person voting on Election Day. Of mail-in voting, Joe Biden won a significant majority of the votes cast early on mail-in voting," Cruz explained.

"Now, here's the good news: If you look historically to recounts, if you look historically to election litigation, the votes cast in person on Election Day tend to stand. It's sort of hard to screw that up. Those votes are generally legal, and they're not set aside. Mail-in votes historically have a much higher rate of rejection … when they're examined, there are a whole series of legal requirements that vary state by state, but mail-in votes consistently have a higher rate of rejection, which suggests that as these votes begin being examined and subjected to scrutiny, that you're going to see Joe Biden's vote tallies go down. That's a good thing," he added. "The challenge is, for President Trump to prevail, he's got to run the table. He's got to win, not just in one state but in several states. That makes it a lot harder to prevail in the litigation. I hope that he does so, but it is a real challenge and we shouldn't try to convince ourselves otherwise."

Fox News senior meteorologist Janice Dean is perhaps even more disgusted with New York Gov. Andrew Cuomo (D) for his coronavirus response than BlazeTV's Stu Burguiere (read what Stu has to say on the subject here), and for a good reason.

She lost both of her in-laws to COVID-19 in New York's nursing homes after Gov. Cuomo's infamous nursing home mandate, which Cuomo has since had scrubbed from the state's website and blamed everyone from the New York Post to nursing care workers to (every leftist's favorite scapegoat) President Donald Trump.

Janice joined Glenn and Stu on the "Glenn Beck Radio Program" Tuesday to ask why mainstream media is not holding Gov. Cuomo — who recently published a book about his leadership during the COVID-19 pandemic — accountable?

"I'm vocal because I have not seen the mainstream media ask these questions or demand accountability of their leaders. [Cuomo] really has been ruling with an iron fist, and every time he does get asked a question, he blames everybody else except the person that signed that order," Janice said.

"In my mind, he's profiting off the over 30 thousand New Yorkers, including my in-laws, that died by publishing a book on 'leadership' of New York," she added. "His order has helped kill thousands of relatives of New York state. And this is not political, Glenn. This is not about Republican or Democrat. My in-laws were registered Democrats. This is not about politics. This is about accountability for something that went wrong, and it's because of your [Cuomo's] leadership that we're put into this situation."

As America grows divided and afraid to disagree with the Democrats' woke plan for America, Megyn Kelly is ready to fight back for the truth. For nearly two decades, she navigated the volatile and broken world of the media. But as America leans on independent voices more than ever, she's breaking new ground with "The Megyn Kelly Show."

She joined the latest Glenn Beck Podcast to break down what's coming next after the election: Black Lives Matter is mainstream, leftists are making lists of Trump supporters, and the Hunter Biden scandal is on the back burner.

Megyn and Glenn reminisce about their cable news days (including her infamous run-in with then-presidential candidate Donald Trump) and to look into the chaotic and shady world of journalism and the growing entitlement it's bred. For example, many conservatives have been shocked by how Fox News handled the election.

Megyn defended Fox News, saying she believes Fox News' mission "is a good one," but also didn't hold back on hosts like Neil Cavuto, who cut off a White House briefing to fact check it — something she never would have done, even while covering President Obama.

Megyn also shared this insightful takeaway from her time at NBC: "Jane Fonda was an ass."
