"The motivation to make this project was less about guns in and of themselves and more about the problems that I was seeing with our government and where we're going, and the type of borderline tyrannical government that we're dealing with today and the continual violation of the Constitution and civil liberties," Winton explained.

Winton additionally wrote an op-ed in The Washington Times about millennials and why they are skeptical about gun control, describing them as passionate about protecting American civil liberties.

"This is great," Glenn said. "You can find out where it's showing at TargetedTheMovie.com. Well spoken, well thought out millennial. Support him. Support the millennials who are standing up for the fence around the American idea, the Constitution."

GLENN: All right. We have our serial. Part two on gun control coming up in just a second, just at the bottom of the hour. But we have Jesse Winton on. He's made a new documentary, new movie called Targeted: Exposing the Gun Control Agenda. Wanted to have him on because a lot of people think, "Oh, millennials, you know, they're not doing anything." Here's a guy who is 22 years old, making a documentary on the Second Amendment.

Jesse, how are you?

JESSE: I'm doing well. How are you doing?

GLENN: Good. Did you study filmmaking? How did you get into this?

JESSE: I actually am by and large self-taught. Really just kind of developed a passion for film when I was young and started, you know, thinking about ideas for documentaries. Produced a documentary with my dad and brother when I was about 15, 16 years old. And was then looking for another project. And the idea for a project on gun control came up. And Targeted is the result.

GLENN: Okay. Are you a gun owner? Are you a shooter? I mean --

JESSE: Yeah, it's actually interesting. I am a gun owner. But I am not what would probably be typically considered a gun person.

GLENN: Uh-huh.

JESSE: In that I don't particularly enjoy shooting as a sport. You know, I do shoot every once in a while, but I have guns as tools.

So for me, this -- this idea and the motivation to make this project was less about guns in and of themselves and more about the problems that I was seeing with our government and where we're going and the type of borderline tyrannical government that we're dealing with today and the continual violation of the Constitution and civil liberties.

And this just happened to be one of the foundational issues that was regularly discussed and regularly brought up. So the motivation for the film for me is less about the guns themselves and more about the ideas of freedom that we're trying to hold up through the project.

GLENN: Tell me, you wrote an op-ed in the Washington Times. Again, 22-year-old Jesse Winton, the filmmaker of Targeted the movie. TargetedtheMovie.com. You wrote an op-ed last week. You said: Why millennials are skeptical of gun control. Do you want to get into that?

JESSE: Yeah, I think it goes hand in hand with what I've seen with people in my own age-group, millennials. I've seen a split right down the middle, that is pushing millennials either incredibly Libertarian or incredibly -- like more socialistic. More -- you know, the Bernie Sanders supporters, where a lot of them were millennial college students.

GLENN: Yeah. Right.

JESSE: So I think that what we're seeing is a trend that is pushing millennials more and more towards civil liberty. More and more towards understanding freedom and really caring about freedom, again, because I think that a more Libertarian ideal that is being promulgated by millennials.

So to me, I think that millennials are really -- you know, I don't see a ton of millennials that are really gun people. I think more millennials would fall into the same category as myself. They see them as being a necessary part of the society that we live in today. But the skepticism towards gun control from millennials, I think, is more related to how passionate a lot of millennials are becoming about civil liberties.

And we've seen in the past couple of years with Edward Snowden and, you know, the NSA, how important surveillance is to millennials, that they really are caring about the Constitution, they're caring about their freedom, and they're caring about this continual government overreach. And so that translates into skepticism related to gun control.

GLENN: This is great.

So how do you see -- Jesse, because I see both parties. I have only one minute.

I see both parties falling apart in the future for millennials, if it hasn't already.

Where do you see the future of -- let's just nail it to gun control. What's going to happen?

JESSE: You know, I think that a lot of that will, you know, change in November. A lot of that -- we'll be able to see what happens after the election and kind of have an idea of where we're headed.

But by and large, I still have a lot of hope for America. I still think we have this foundational -- these foundational ideas of freedom that aren't going anywhere. People really understand at the core who we are as Americans, what we stand for, and so I think that it's going to be a tough uphill battle for anyone who wants to take that away.

GLENN: Okay. One night only movie event. Theaters nationwide. Tomorrow night. You can find out where it's showing at TargetedtheMovie.com. TargetedtheMovie.com. Well spoken. Well thought out millennial. Support him. Support the millennials who are standing up for the fence around the American idea, the Constitution. TargetedtheMovie.com.

If there is any doubt about the radical agenda in our school systems, this California teacher just put that to bed. She asked to remain anonymous and courageously agreed to join Glenn on radio Wednesday and provided a document all about the mandatory training the teachers in her school district all had to complete.

They are not required to implement the training in actual curriculum but they are encouraged to talk to their kids about it. She asked colleagues what they thought about the training and many said that it was not sitting right with them but maybe it was because they had racist tendencies themselves.

Once again, the media has failed to carry out even the most cursory investigation when it comes to allegations against Rep. Ilhan Omar (D-Minn.). But investigative journalist David Steinberg has been piecing together "32 new, verifiable, archived pieces of evidence" that indicate Omar conducted the "most extensive spree of state and federal felonies by an elected congressperson in U.S. history."

Steinberg joined Glenn Beck on the radio program to detail how the pieces fit together in his latest report available on TheBlaze.com.

"It's over," Steinberg told Glenn. "There's really nothing left. It's all ... the publicly available documentation that anyone would need to be convinced that, for eight years, [Omar] married her brother to commit immigration fraud. And this marriage fraud also was in the service of education fraud/student loan fraud. And along the line, we have evidence, that she filed at least two years of fraudulent tax returns, possibly eight [years]. We have evidence that she perjured herself eight times during her 2017 divorce from this man. And along the way, of course, we know she was living in public housing. We also know she was likely receiving subsidized child care.

"Essentially, almost everything she put her name on for eight years was perjury or fraud. And it all adds up to likely the most extensive spree of state and federal felonies by an elected congressperson in U.S. history. I really have no other way to put it. That's how big this is."

The extreme-left idea that gender is "fluid" is a complete denial of science, according to sex researcher and neuroscientist Dr. Debra Soh.

Dr. Soh joined Glenn Beck on his latest podcast to talk about her new book, "THE END OF GENDER: Debunking the Myths about Sex & Identity in Our Society" and to offer a hard dose of objective truth about gender and sexual orientation based on scientific facts.

She also explained why she had to leave academia to be able to speak freely about sex and identity, and how — despite being a liberal — the far-left is actively trying to cancel her for saying there are biological differences between men and women.

In February 2020, Glenn Beck and his research team uncovered an alleged multi-billion dollar money laundering scheme which lead to a missing $1.8 billion in U.S. aid sent to Ukraine during the Obama administration, all of which pointed to Igor Kolomoisky, the corrupt Ukrainian billionaire at the center of it all.

If you missed Glenn's February special, "Ukraine: The Final Piece," you can find it here.

This week, the FBI raided the offices of U.S. companies owned by Kolomoisky in Cleveland and Miami. Additionally, the Department of Justice accused the Ukrainian oligarch of stealing billions of dollars from PrivatBank and then laundering the money through a network of companies all over the world. Kolomoisky and partner, Hennadiy Boholyubov, owned PrivatBank until December 2016, when Ukraine nationalized the bank because billions of dollars had gone missing.

Kolomoisky has ties to the Ukrainian gas firm Burisma, former Burisma board member Hunter Biden, and Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelensky, whose phone call with President Donald Trump was central to the Democrats' now-failed impeachment attempt.

On the radio program Friday, Glenn spoke with chief researcher Jason Buttrill about these latest developments.

"Yeah, $1.8 billion of [taxpayer] money that just vanished has now been found, or at least part of it, in Miami and Cleveland," Glenn said.

"I can't believe it's taken this long," Jason responded. "You said in February that [Kolomoisky] was the key to finding out where the money went. And we're talking about $1.8 billion dollars — $1.8 billion! That could finance a small war."

"That money went to PrivatBank — that's Kolomoisky's bank," he continued. "It was later nationalized after they found out all this money was mysteriously going missing. But it went through a bank in Cypress then, poof, it was laundered all over the world. [...] We also showed, in one of the previous shows, that there were wire transfers going from Burisma, which Kolomoisky is the managing principal of, to Hunter Biden."

Glenn and Jason also talked about recent reports from the Department of Homeland Security (DHS) alleging ties between American revolutionaries, such as Antifa, and Marxist terrorists in Syria, which BlazeTV exposed back in June. Find out more here.
