Christmas for Haitian Children Rescued From Sex Slavery—Thanks to You and O.U.R.

Editor's Note: The following is based on Glenn's monologue from December 12, 2016.

I'm going to Haiti this week. While it's never been on my bucket list, I'm going because of something you did in 2013.

In 2013, I told you the story of children that had been kidnapped and sold into sex slavery. It's happening here in America. It's happening all over the world. There are more slaves today than at any point in world history. We haven't ended slavery, and we're arguing about slavery that happened 150 years old. What about the slaves that exist today?

After hearing about the plight of these innocent children, you helped raise a million and a half dollars to start Operation Underground Railroad (O.U.R.), an organization created for the sole purpose to free children trapped in sex slavery.

That same year, I also received this letter from a dad:

Dear Glenn,

Before you sleep at night, do you check on each of your sweet children? Do you know that they're safe and sound before you close your eyes? Do you have to know that? Because I do.

This is not why I've slept since my boy was taken. I walk the streets every night. I walk aimlessly through a different neighborhood every night, listening. Listening for his cry. I come home, and I sit on my porch until I nod off for a few moments. And 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. My country doesn't have the ability to search for my boy, but Operation Underground Railroad does. And now they're coming back because of your audience.

Your audience has sent them. Thank you, thank you, thank you. May God bless you forever. I know we will find my son. God has told me he is still alive.

Gus Mardi

I think of Gus quite often because they still haven't found his son. His son was kidnapped and trafficked.

Tania and I were talking about it a couple weeks ago. I don't know how I would go on. I would just pray that my son, after a while, was dead because I would have to know that he's not still going through that.

The first mission for Operation Underground Railroad happened in Haiti. They rescued 28 children. They were being sold for sex, for labor and for organ harvesting. Gus's son Guardee, the little boy from the letter above, was one of the children they were looking for. While three of his captors were arrested and his friends were rescued, Guardee had already been sold down the chain.

When we had to tell Guardee's dad that he wasn't there, he spent very little time in mourning. In fact, this is what he said: Yes, I know. But I also know that you wouldn't be here if it wasn't for my boy. If in the end I have to lose my boy so you can rescue even just these 28, then that's a burden I'm willing to bear for my entire life.

If that's not the literal story of Christmas . . . a boy being born to sacrifice to save all others.

This week, I'm going to Haiti to visit with and bring Christmas to all of those rescued kids. The number just in Haiti is now 200. Seven of these kids are being adopted by three different families here in the US. We're bringing the families down with us.

Hundreds and hundreds and hundreds of children have been saved because of you. Four thousand refuges in the Middle East have been saved because of you.

This Christmas, I want to thank you for caring and being charitable. Your generosity has saved lives --- and given faith and hope to multitudes of people.

On the "Glenn Beck Radio Program" Monday, Harvard Law professor and lawyer on President Donald Trump's impeachment defense team Alan Dershowitz explains the history of impeachment and its process, why the framers did not include abuse of power as criteria for a Constitutional impeachment, why the Democrats are framing their case the way they are, and what to look for in the upcoming Senate trial.

Dershowitz argued that "abuse of power" -- one of two articles of impeachment against Trump approved by House Democrats last month -- is not an impeachable act.

"There are two articles of impeachment. The second is 'obstruction of Congress.' That's just a false accusation," said Dershowitz. "But they also charge him, in the Ukraine matter, with abuse of power. But abuse of power was discussed by the framers (of the U.S. Constitution) ... the framers refused to include abuse of power because it was too broad, too open-ended.

"In the words of James Madison, the father of our Constitution, it would lead presidents to serve at the will of Congress. And that's exactly what the framers didn't want, which is why they were very specific and said a president can be impeached only for treason, bribery, or other high crimes and misdemeanors," he added.

"What's alleged against President Trump is not criminal," added Dershowitz. "If they had criminal issues to allege, you can be sure they would have done it. If they could establish bribery or treason, they would have done it already. But they didn't do it. They instead used this concept of abuse of power, which is so broad and general ... any president could be charged with it."

On Friday's radio program, Bill O'Reilly joins Glenn Beck discuss the possible outcomes for the Democrats in 2020.

Why are former President Barack and First Lady Michelle Obama working overtime to convince Americans they're more moderate than most of the far-left Democratic presidential candidates? Is there a chance of a Michelle Obama vs. Donald Trump race this fall?

O'Reilly surmised that a post-primary nomination would probably be more of a "Bloomberg play." He said Michael Bloomberg might actually stand a chance at the Democratic nomination if there is a brokered convention, as many Democratic leaders are fearfully anticipating.

"Bloomberg knows he doesn't really have a chance to get enough delegates to win," O'Reilly said. "He's doing two things: If there's a brokered convention, there he is. And even if there is a nominee, it will probably be Biden, and Biden will give [him] Secretary of State or Secretary of Treasury. That's what Bloomberg wants."

On the "Glenn Beck Radio Program" Friday, award-winning investigative reporter John Solomon, a central figure in the impeachment proceedings, explained his newly filed lawsuit, which seeks the records of contact between Ukraine prosecutors and the U.S. Embassy officials in Kiev during the 2016 election.

The records would provide valuable information on what really happened in Ukraine, including what then-Vice President Joe Biden and his son Hunter were doing with Ukrainian energy company, Burisma Holdings, Solomon explained.

The documents, which the State Department has withheld thus far despite repeated requests for release by Solomon, would likely shed light on the alleged corruption that President Donald Trump requested to be investigated during his phone call with the president of Ukraine last year.

With the help of Southeastern Legal Foundation, Solomon's lawsuit seeks to compel the State Department to release the critical records. Once released, the records are expected to reveal, once and for all, exactly why President Trump wanted to investigate the dealings in Ukraine, and finally expose the side of the story that Democrats are trying to hide in their push for impeachment.

"It's been a one-sided story so far, just like the beginning of the Russia collusion story, right? Everybody was certain on Jan. 9 of 2017 that the Christopher Steele dossier was gospel. And our president was an agent of Russia. Three years later, we learned that all of that turned out to be bunk, " Solomon said.

"The most important thing about politics, and about investigations, is that there are two sides to a story. There are two pieces of evidence. And right now, we've only seen one side of it," he continued. "I think we'll learn a lot about what the intelligence community, what the economic and Treasury Department community was telling the president. And I bet the story was way more complicated than the narrative that [House Intelligence Committee Chairman] Adam Schiff [D-Calif.] has woven so far."

Carter Page, a former advisor to Donald Trump's 2016 presidential campaign, found himself at the center of the Russia probe and had his reputation and career destroyed by what we now know were lies from our own intelligence system and the media.

On the TV show Thursday, Page joined Glenn Beck to speak out about how he became the subject of illegal electronic surveillance by the FBI for more than two years, and revealed the extent of the corruption that has infiltrated our legal systems and our country as a whole.

"To me, the bigger issue is how much damage this has done to our country," Page told Glenn. "I've been very patient in trying to ... find help with finding solutions and correcting this terrible thing which has happened to our country, our judicial system, DOJ, FBI -- these once-great institutions. And my bigger concern is the fact that, although we keep taking these steps forward in terms of these important findings, it really remains the tip of the iceberg."

Page was referencing the report by Justice Department Inspector General Michael Horowitz, which revealed that the FBI made "at least 17 significant errors or omissions" in its Foreign Intelligence Surveillance Act (FISA) applications for warrants to spy on Page, a U.S. citizen.

"I think this needs to be attacked from all angles," Glenn said. "The one angle I'm interested in from you is, please tell me you have the biggest badass attorneys that are hungry, starving, maybe are a little low to pay their Mercedes payments right now, and are just gearing up to come after the government and the media. Are they?"

I can confirm that that is the case," Page replied.
