Human Trafficking Survivor: 'One Day Became Two, Weeks Became Months, and Then Years'

Turn on the news these days and what do you see? College campuses turned into “warzones,” fringe radicals fighting in the streets, and professional athletes taking a knee during the National Anthem. But while Americans tear each other apart over what we consider to be injustice and oppression, unspeakable acts of very real abuse are going on all over the world.

Right now, more than 40 million people are enslaved. That’s more than the total number of slaves that existed during the height of the slave trade in the 1700 and 1800’s.

“I reached a point where my whole life collapsed …”

Today on the show, Glenn talks with Karla Jacinto, a former victim of human trafficking in Mexico. Karla was only 12 years old when she was targeted by a sex-trafficker who lured her away from her abusive mother with kind words and promises of a better life. Instead, her life became a living hell.

For the next four years, Karla was forced into prostitution, working from 10 am to midnight, seven days a week. If she displeased her captures in any way she was severely beaten and burned. If she attempted to escape, her traffickers threatened to harm or even kill her family members.

“I began to just close my eyes and client, after client, after client came in, constantly,” said Karla. “I reached a point where my whole life collapsed in that moment. One day became two, weeks became months, and then years.”

My life is a bank page and I am its only author. This is Karla’s story.

In 2008, at the age of 16, Karla was rescued during a human trafficking sting. She has since become an outspoken advocate against human trafficking, telling her heart-wrenching tale at various events, to the US Congress, and even Pope Francis at the Vatican . Her story has gained international attention and helped shed light on the terrible crimes being committed in Mexico.

Bill O'Reilly: How corrupt media twisted Joe Biden Ukraine scandal onto Trump

Bill O'Reilly gives his take on whether or not President Trump DID promise or threaten the President of Ukraine for dirt on Joe Biden, and whether or not the action is grounds for impeachment. But O'Reilly explains that either way, the media has demonstrated its corruptness yet again by manipulating the story away from a scandal for Joe and Hunter, and towards a potential, rumored wrongdoing by Donald Trump.

The Fed, banks printing money to 'prevent' trouble: Recession WILL come soon

Glenn discusses the current state of the economy with author of "Zero Hour," Harry Dent. He says the federal reserve is still funding big banks daily to increase their excess reserve, signaling that something is wrong with the system. Dent says the banks printed money back in the 1930s to climb out of the Great Depression, which only created an aftershock that was even worse. Banks and the Fed are doing the same thing today, so will the coming economic crisis be worse than the 2008 recession? Economist Dent says it's possible, and that it could come as early as 2020.

Lessons from Bill and Monica: Trump, Biden, Obama, Ukraine, and corruption

Glenn says there's an important lesson we can all learn looking back on the Bill Clinton and Monica Lewinsky scandal: corruption should matter, no matter which political party is to blame. So why are Democrats and the media trying desperately to shame President Trump for alleged corrupt action, but ignoring Joe Biden's clear intention to help his son, Hunter, profit through foreign policy in the Ukraine? How do we fix such a double standard?
