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.

"What's your climate credit score?" That's a question Americans may have to answer if the green global elites get their way.

While the media has distracted us with Orange Man Bad! and Russia, Russia, Russia!, the Left has been busy working on the fundamental transformation of America with a primary pressure point — YOUR money through YOUR bank. Democrats, forgetting the words of MLK, like to group people into categories. They judge you based on what skin color you have, your religion, occupation, your ideology, and now … your carbon footprint.

On his Wednesday night TV special this week, Glenn Beck exposes how they're now planning, not only to categorize you, but to give you a score. It'll determine everything for you: whether you can buy a home, get a new car, open a business … EVERYTHING. And if you don't bend the knee? You'll be blacklisted. But this isn't some far-off conspiracy theory. Multiple big U.S. banks are part of a private U.S. financial group enacting these policies now. It's here, and we're ALL at risk.

Unlike the mainstream media, we at the "Glenn Beck Radio Program" decided to actually do the research and get to the bottom of CPAC's controversial stage design, which many on the Left have suggested was purposefully shaped like an obscure Nazi symbol. We got our answers straight from the source — and it's not what the media is suggesting.

American Conservative Union chairman Matt Schlapp joined Glenn on Wednesday to share the real story of the stage design, who designed it, and why he's taking legal options against those smearing the Conservative Political Action Conference's name seriously.

Matt told Glenn he'd never heard of the alleged Nazi insignia, noting that even a staff member who "studied anti-Semitism in college" did not recognize the obscure symbol. He went on to explain how the stage designing firm, Design Foundry, and Hyatt Hotels worked collaboratively with CPAC event organizers for months throughout the designing and construction of the stage. However, when pressured by the cancel culture mob on social media, both companies "ran for the tall grass."

"Both the Hyatt and [Design Foundry] looked to CPAC and said [they] had nothing to do with this stage. That's outrageous," Matt stated. "This whole process takes months ... everybody saw this. Everybody had to figure out how to construct this. Everybody had eyes on it from every angle. And nobody in that process ever raised their hand and said, 'Oh, you know, I took a European history class, and I noticed [that the stage design looked like a Nazi symbol.] Nobody."

Matt went on to add that, while CPAC expects attacks from the Left, they also have every intention of standing up for themselves, the conservative community, the Jewish community, and all the people who love America.

"We're fine with taking the hits. We always take the hits, it's part of being a prominent conservative group. We'll take the hits, but we won't let people lie," Matt said.

"I can't tell you how many people have called me during the course of this most tumultuous of years and said, at what point does the conservative community, do the 74 million Americans who voted for Donald Trump, do the people who love America, and think it's okay to read Dr. Seuss, and love Thomas Jefferson and Mount Rushmore, at what point do they start pushing back on the cancel culture? At what point do they say, this is a line you can't cross? I think we're at that line," he added.

"We called our conference, 'America Uncanceled.' The whole thing became about them canceling us. At what point do we not have the right to say,' you can't treat us this way'? You're disparaging us. You're destroying our reputation. You're destroying our ability to be respected members of our community. So, I'm taking your challenge of pursuing our legal options very seriously. And I think we have to go broader. We can't let these companies just follow the woke mob. We can't do it."

CNN reporter Jim Acosta was confronted at CPAC by The Federalist reporter David Marcus with a valid question: "When are you guys going to start covering Cuomo?" His answer — or, really, lack of an answer — perfectly demonstrates why he was earlier surrounded by CPAC attendees chanting, "CNN sucks!"

On the "Glenn Beck Radio Program" Tuesday, Glenn and producer Stu Burguiere react to a video clip of the exchange with Acosta, as well as the mainstream media's double standards when it comes to Democratic New York Gov. Andrew Cuomo.

Glenn Beck can't help but wonder, "What is wrong with us?" in light of the Left's latest move — canceling six Dr. Seuss books due to "hurtful and wrong" illustrations — that takes America one step closer to complete insanity. And now, school districts are jumping on board after President Joe Biden seems to have dropped Dr. Seuss from the White House's annual "Read Across America Day" proclamation.

On the radio program Tuesday, Glenn argued that deleting books is the perfect example of fascism, and asked when we as a country will finally realize it.

"They are banning Dr. Seuss books. How much more do you need to see before all of America wakes up? ... This is fascism!" Glenn said. "We don't destroy books. What is wrong with us, America?"
