My Trip to Haiti May Have Changed the Course of My Life

I have not been able to find the words yet to tell you how I feel about my trip to Haiti.

As you may know, you and many others in my audience raised the first $1.5 million dollars to launch Operation Underground Railroad (O.U.R.), whose goal is to break the back of the global sex trade. Hundreds of slaves have been freed by O.U.R. In fact, the biggest bust in global history happened just recently because of this program which is near and dear to our hearts. Children in countries all over the world, including America, were freed.

There are people anxious to tell the stories uncovered by O.U.R. A major movie is in development and TV shows have been pitched. But Tim Ballard, the founder of O.U.R., and I agree on one thing: the real story isn't about the western dirtbags that come --- many from America --- to buy, sell and abuse children, some as young as ONE year old. It isn't about the buying and selling of eight-year-old children to pick bananas or the 13-year-old girl I met with the scars from chains around her wrists and around her throat from when her captors tried to kill her. It isn't about the child sacrifices in Uganda. And it isn't even about the missing women and children The Nazarene Fund is still trying to free from ISIS sex camps.

The real story is about so much more than sex slavery. The real story is about hope.

The full experience of this trip to Haiti and what it meant to me, how it changed me and what I am planning on doing, I will share with you after the first of the year. We will not only arrest some of the most evil men and women on the planet today, free children from a life of hell, bring needed attention to the fact that there are more slaves on the planet today that at any other time in human history, but I believe we just may save ourselves and our world.

When people ask me what can bring us together, I believe it is this.

This trip may have changed the course of my life. Tania and I will be praying hard for these children and for answers on how we can best serve. Right now, I would ask that you visit Operation Underground Railroad and learn as much as you can.

Here are a few pictures from my trip that I wanted to share with you:

Pierre. The cutest kid ever. He would not let me put him down. He put on my glasses and we became pals. Later, hand in hand, I took him to the room full of gifts and let him pick one. From the toys, play guns, matchbox cars, light sabers, etc., he picked a stuffed elephant.

main-image-orphanage-blue-exterior

Not a prison, but gates to keep the bad guys out. This is a high security center where some of the kids are witness to what I would classify crimes against humanity.

No child would let us go. They all pressed their faces to ours, starved for love and kindness. There are 300,000 orphans ready to adopt and only 300 were adopted last year. The government is so corrupt and standing in the way.

This is Junior. He is blind and lucky to be in a safe place. Sometimes children like him are sold to harvest organs. I put his hands on my face so he could 'see' me.

main-image-laughing-baby-girl

A wonderful 3-month-old girl. Her mother was just rescued and is a sex slave survivor. The baby was born free. Mom stood behind and said this was the first time she had heard her baby laugh. I think it's because she had never seen a talking marshmallow.

A story I can't wait to tell. Heroes that heard the call on my show and sold everything to move to Haiti to help. Wait until you hear the whole story.

Acclaimed environmentalist and author of "Apocalypse Never" Michael Shellenberger joined Glenn Beck on the radio program Wednesday to warn us about the true goals and effects of climate alarmism: It's become a "secular religion" that lowers standards of living in developed countries, holds developing countries back, and has environmental progress "exactly wrong."

Michael is a Time "Hero of the Environment," Green Book Award winner, and the founder and president of Environmental Progress. He has been called a "environmental guru," "climate guru," "North America's leading public intellectual on clean energy," and "high priest" of the environmental humanist movement for his writings and TED talks, which have been viewed more than 5 million times. But when Michael penned a stunning article in Forbes saying, "On Behalf of Environmentalists, I Apologize for the Climate Scare", the article was pulled just a few hours later. (Read more here.)

On the show, Micheal talked about how environmental alarmism has overtaken scientific fact, leading to a number of unfortunate consequences. He said one of the problems is that rich nations are blocking poor nations from being able to industrialize. Instead, they are seeking to make poverty sustainable, rather than to make poverty history.

"As a cultural anthropologist, I've been traveling to poorer countries and interviewing small farmers for over 30 years. And, obviously there are a lot of causes why countries are poor, but there's no reason we should be helping them to stay poor," Michael said. "A few years ago, there was a movement to make poverty history ... [but] it got taken over by the climate alarmist movement, which has been focused on depriving poor countries, not just of fossil fuels they need to develop, but also the large hydroelectric dams."

He offered the example of the Congo, one of the poorest countries in the world. The Congo has been denied the resources needed to build large hydroelectric dams, which are absolutely essential to pull people out of poverty. And one of the main groups preventing poor countries from the gaining financing they need to to build dams is based in Berkeley, California — a city that gets its electricity from hydroelectric dams.

"It's just unconscionable ... there are major groups, including the Sierra Club, that support efforts to deprive poor countries of energy. And, honestly, they've taken over the World Bank [which] used to fund the basics of development: roads, electricity, sewage systems, flood control, dams," Micheal said.

"Environmentalism, apocalyptic environmentalism in particular, has become the dominant religion of supposedly secular people in the West. So, you know, it's people at the United Nations. It's people that are in very powerful positions who are trying to impose 'nature's order' on societies," he continued. "And, of course, the problem is that nobody can figure out what nature is, and what it's not. That's not a particular good basis for organizing your economy."

Dr. Voddie Baucham, Dean of Theology at African Christian University in Lusaka, Zambia, joined Glenn Beck on the radio program to explain why he agrees with Vice President Mike Pence's refusal to say the phrase "Black Lives Matter."

Baucham, who recently drew national attention when his sermon titled "Ethnic Gnosticism" resurfaced online, said the phrase has been trademarked by a dangerous, violent, Marxist movement that doesn't care about black lives except to use them as political pawns.

"We have to separate this movement from the issues," Baucham warned. "I know that [Black Lives Matter] is a phrase that is part of an organization. It is a trademark phrase. And it's a phrase designed to use black people.

"That phrase dehumanizes black people, because it makes them pawns in a game that has nothing whatsoever to do with black people and their dignity. And has everything to do with a divisive agenda that is bigger than black people. That's why I'm not going to use that phrase, because I love black people. I love being black."

Baucham warned that Black Lives Matter -- a radical Marxist movement -- is using black people and communities to push a dangerous and divisive narrative. He encouraged Americans to educate themselves on the organization's agenda and belief statement.

"This movement is dangerous. This movement is vicious. And this movement uses black people," he emphasized. "And so if I'm really concerned about issues in the black community -- and I am -- then I have to refuse, and I have to repudiate that organization. Because they stand against that for which I am advocating."

On last week's Wednesday night special, Glenn Beck revealed where the Black Lives Matter organization really gets its funding, and the dark money trail leading to a cast of familiar characters. Shortly after the program aired, one of BLM's fiscal sponsors, Thousand Currents, took down its board of directors page, which featured one of these shady characters:

Ex-Marxist professor and author of "Beyond Woke," Michael Rectenwald, joined Glenn Beck on the TV show to fill us in on the suspicious change he discovered on the Thousand Currents webpage and the Communist terrorists who is now helping run the organization. (Fortunately, the internet is forever, so it is still possible to view the board of directors page by looking at a web archive from the WayBack Machine.)

Rectenwald revealed the shocking life history of Thousand Currents' vice chair of the board, Susan Rosenberg, who spent 16 years in federal prison for her part in a series of increasingly violent acts of terrorism, including bombing the U.S. Capitol building, bombing an FBI building, and targeting police for assassination.

"Their whole campaign was one of unbelievably vicious, murderous cop killings, assassinations, and bombings," explained Rectenwald of Rosenberg's terror group known as the May 19th Communist Organization or M19.
