Santa Beck Brings ‘America’s First Christmas’ to Wilmington, Ohio
The EVIL reality of America's child sex trade.
I recently read an article by John Whitehead with the Rutherford Institute titled, "Evil Walks Among Us: Child Trafficking Has Become Big Business in America." The facts listed in this article are horrifying. This is what's happening to our society—children are being targeted and sold for sex in America, every day.
Every two minutes, a child is bought and sold for sex. Hundreds of young girls and boys, some as young as nine, are being bought and sold for sex—sometimes as many as 20 times a day. Adults purchase children for sex at least 2.5 million times a year, in the U.S. alone.
Every two minutes, a child is bought and sold for sex.
In Georgia, it is estimated that 7,200 men, half of them in their 30s, seek to purchase sex with an adolescent girl every month, 300 times a day. On average, a child will be raped by 6,000 men, during a five-year period. It's estimated that at least 100,000 to 500,000 children, girls and boys, are bought and sold for sex in the U.S. every year. 36 percent of the children in the sex slave trade are boys.
This is happening in our society. Our society is corrupt and broken.
Adults purchase children for sex at least 2.5 million times a year, in the U.S. alone.
Moreover, our children are being targeted for sexual exploitation in our homes, in our schools. Anyone who has a child, who has been exposed to porn online knows that it spins their heads like crazy. Now they're being introduced to this porn, in our schools packaged as "sex education" that is a Trojan horse for the progressive left's radical ideology—from a trusted teacher. Our youth are in trouble.
The growth of porn and sexual indoctrination in our schools is making our kids more at risk of being trafficked. The number of kids at risk of being trafficked or have already been sold into the sex slave trade would fill 1,300 school buses. This is happening online. It could be happening in your own home to your kids, where they're being groomed through gaming or through social media. One in five kids online are sexually propositioned over gaming platforms and social media.
It is big business—for girls and boys.
This is happening here, in our homes, in our schools, along our borders, on our turf. We Americans are consuming and buying it. We are responsible for our children, and we can't stand for this. We have to do something.
9 SURPRISING facts proving conservatives are HAPPIER and have BETTER MARRIAGES than liberals
As we roll into Valentines Day, Glenn discusses a new study showing conservatives are happier and have better marriages than liberals.
Numerous studies have shown conservatives tend to champion marriage and family values alongside traditional family roles, while liberals tend to value independence, singleness, and non-traditional gender roles. As Glenn said on yesterday's radio program:
Republicans and Democrats view gender roles dramatically differently—we understand that there are only two genders. Republicans tend to embrace traditional gender roles, while Democrats tend to question them.
The results are the same across the board: marriage, family, and traditional gender roles result in greater levels of happiness than those values heralded by liberals.
Here are 9 facts from the studies showing that, contrary to our cultural narrative, the values championed by conservatives are the foundation for building a happy and fulfilling life.
Republicans are more satisfied in their relationships than Democrats.
According to a new study conducted in affiliation with the American Enterprise Institute, Republican men report being the most satisfied in their marriages out of those surveyed (48 percent). Republican women are in a close second at 42 percent.
Married Democrat women are the most dissatisfied with their relationship.
In contrast, according to the same study, Republican married couples, only 29 percent of Democrat married women say they are completely satisfied with their relationship. Only 36 percent of Democrat married men say they are satisfied.
The "Republican Advantage" in marriage is across the board.
Studies have shown that the Republican advantage in relationship satisfaction holds even regardless of differences in "educational attainment, race and ethnicity, age, and religious affiliation."
The "Republican Advantage" stems from conservatives championing "family-first" values.
Studies have found that conservatives are more likely to embrace the "family-first" values that direct them towards marriage and fulfilling family lives.
Married couples in general report more satisfaction in their relationships than Americans in other types of relationships.
40 percent of married Americans report being “completely” satisfied with their relationship with their spouse, compared to 33 percent of cohabitating couples and only 24 percent of those in committed relationships who are not living together.
Democrats, on the other hand, champion values that steer them away from marriage.
Unlike conservatives who champion family-first values, Democrats are drawn to individualist values and believe independence, freedom, and work will make them happy. For example, the left-leaning publication Bloomberg published an anecdotally-based survey of women titled, "Women Who Stay Single and Don’t Have Kids Are Getting Richer” and featured childless, single women who claim personal happiness. Liberal media also celebrates singleness and divorce compared to marriage and family.
Conservatives are more likely to be married than liberals.
Conservatives aged 18-55 are 20 percent more likely to be married than liberals. This comes as little surprise because, as mentioned previously, conservatives tend to champion "family-first" values that steer them towards marriage. Liberals, on the other hand, are more likely to remain single.
Conservatives are more likely to be satisfied with their families than liberals.
Conservatives are 18 percent more likely to be satisfied with their families than liberals. Studies show that liberals tend to reverse gender roles, with the "stay-at-home husband" trend complementing the "working woman." Research has shown this type of role reversal leads to a greater sense of dissatisfaction in marriage than traditional gender roles typically held by conservatives.
Liberals more likely to struggle with their mental health than conservatives.
Liberals are about 19 percent less likely to be “completely satisfied” with their mental health than conservatives. W. Bradford Wilcox, a senior fellow of the Institute for Family Studies and University of Virginia professor of sociology, attributes the disparity in overall happiness between conservatives and liberals to their differing views in marital status and family satisfaction. He wrote, "The secret to happiness, for most men and women, involves marriage and a life based around the family. " It is no wonder that both conservative men and women who champion family-first values report higher levels of happiness than liberal counterparts.
EXPOSED: Microsoft-owned ad agency Xandr blacklists GlennBeck.com

Editor's Note: There are several major updates regarding the originally published article. Due to Kaminsky's research with the 'Washington Examiner' and public outrage to blacklists against conservatives, Microsoft's ad agency, Xandr, has removed conservative sites from their blacklist and discontinued their relationship with the Global Disinformation Index (GDI). Read the original story below.
GlennBeck.com has been financially blacklisted by Microsoft-owned ad agency, Xandr, after being listed on a leftist non-profit's "exclusion list" for propagating "disinformation." Glenn interviewed the reporter breaking the story.
Washington Examiner reporter Gabe Kaminsky broke a series of articles detailing the coordinated effort between ad agencies and leftist non-profits to financially suffocate conservative sites—including glennbeck.com.
Kaminsky found that major ad companies are seeking guidance from self-described "non-partisan" media groups to detect websites carrying "disinformation" with the aim of restricting ads on those sites, depriving conservative media outlets of vital ad revenue. Most notably, Xandr, a massive digital ad agency purchased by Microsoft from AT&T for $1 billion in 2021, announced in 2022 that they would be adopting the Global Disinformation Index's "exclusion list" to punish content that is "morally reprehensible or patently offensive," lacking "redeeming social value," or "could include false or misleading information," according to emails exposed by Kaminsky.
Major ad agencies are depriving conservative media outlets of vital ad revenue.
The "Global Disinformation Index" (GDI) is a leftist non-profit that is targeting conservative media while purporting to be "non-partisan." GDI's recently-published "Disinformation Risk Assessment" listing their self-proclaimed "10 highest and lowest-risk news outlets" demonstrates their overt-leftist bias.
Among their "10 riskiest online news outlets" list included TheBlaze, Daily Wire, New York Post, and other conservative news outlets, accusing the sites of "bias" and "prevalence of sensational language." It is little surprise that their list of the "10 lowest-risk news outlets" included left-leaning sources like the Washington Post, New York Times, NPR, Buzzfeed News, Huffington Post, and others. The only centrist news source listed on their "10 lowest-risk news outlets" was the Wall Street Journal.

GDI submitted a report to the UN stating its aim is "to defund disinformation" and break "the incentive to create it for the purpose of garnering advertising revenues." GDI compiled a larger "exclusion list" to further this end. This "exclusion list" contains 2,000 domain names, most of which are conservative-leaning, and is distributed to ad companies for the sake of restricting their ad space on those sites. Glennbeck.com is one of the 2,000 domains listed.
The aforementioned Microsoft-owned Xandr is one of the major ad companies using this list to restrict revenue to conservative media sources. An executive at an ad agency who contracts with conservative media outlets anonymously disclosed to the Washington ExaminerWashington Examinera list of 37 conservative media outlets that Xander is financially punishing and censoring based on the fact that they are listed on GDI's "exclusion list." Glennbeck.com was included in this list alongside other conservative spokespersons' domains, including charliekirk.com, rushlimbaugh.com, billoreilly.com, hannity.com, and others.

Even more troubling is the federal government's involvement in this collusion. Kaminsky found that his GDI has received "$330,000 from two State Department-backed entities linked to the highest levels of government." Our federal government is apparently bankrolling an organization aimed at defunding conservative platforms. This is an explicit violation of the First Amendment.
Our federal government is apparently bankrolling an organization aimed at defunding conservative platforms.
Dan Schneider, vice president for the Media Research Center's Free Speech Alliance group, compared this coordinated effort to redlining, which financially restricted African Americans' ability to buy homes, or blacklists in Hollywood that prevent conservatives from getting contracts based solely on their beliefs. As Schneider told the Washington Examiner, "What we see going on is not new."
The free press and freedom of speech are the bedrock of a free society's ability to keep the government accountable. That is why it is enshrined in the First Amendment. As Glenn said after the bombshell Twitter Files story dropped, "Without a free and independent press, you can’t have a free and independent civilization." When we don't have a free press, then the press is doing the bidding of the government, which, as Glenn said, "is what they had in Soviet Russia or what they have in China and North Korea today."
We have already seen through the Twitter Files that big tech is doing the bidding of the deep state, censoring content that threatens their leftist narrative. Now the Washington Examiner's groundbreaking story shows that "big advertising" is also in bed with leftist organizations. In both cases, the federal government is both explicitly and financially involved in censoring conservative content for its own benefit.
Is YOUR job safe? Here are 5 unlikely industries that could be replaced by AI.
Artificial intelligence is here, and, as Glenn has warned this week during his special on AI, it is only a matter of time before it affects YOUR industry.
We posed questions about AI to our readers during this week's poll, and while most of you believe that AI could replace other people's jobs, many of you believe that your job is safe from the effects of AI. Is this true?
As Glenn warns, ALL of your jobs are at risk—even the most creative ones. Here are five unlikely industries that are already integrating AI. Do you fall into one of them?
If you haven't already, let us know your thought in this week's poll!
This is arguably the most obvious industry that is threatened by AI. We recently experimented with ChatGPT to see whether it could write a speech in Glenn's voice, and the result was astounding. Even now, ChatGPT and similar technologies have the ability to write everything from haikus to Presidential speeches. As they continue to become more nuanced and complex, they will be able to produce professional-grade written content for any industry.
Research and Development
It is no wonder that Google is rushing to integrate its own AI technology before being replaced by it. Already, ChatGPT has astounding research capabilities. If you type in any subject, it will produce an in-depth, nuanced analysis. Moreover, the technology has the ability to improve upon itself, predict problems and produce solutions at a much faster rate than humans—and exponentially so. If you think your individual talent for R&D shields you from being replaced by AI, think again.
Large food producers are already integrating AI technology to regulate the planting, growing, and harvesting of their products. They are creating AI robots that can determine when a fruit or vegetable is at peak ripeness and delicately pick it without damaging it, potentially replacing thousands of farm workers.
Not only will AI replace jobs in the food production industry, but it will also replace many creative jobs in the culinary industry. Chefs are already using AI to predict food trends and manage food supply and prep. There are even AI robots under development that can produce faster, more efficiently, and with better quality and hygiene than humans—and unlike humans, they don't come with that pesky thing they call a "salary."
The marketing industry is already integrating AI, and it's already being used beyond collecting data and predicting trends. ChatGPT is already able to generate unique marketing content based on those trends, from social media captions to email campaigns, based on the data it collects. This technology could potentially replace entire marketing departments and require only a select few to oversee AI operations.
Students are increasingly using ChatGPT to write their essays for them—often with better quality than in their own words. However, does this technology pose a significant threat to academia beyond the scope of students finding more ways of cheating? Unfortunately, yes...
Not only does AI have the ability to produce an incredibly in-depth summary of academic subjects, it can also produce its own unique, nuanced analysis. With AI technology still in its infant stages, it won't be long before it is able to produce journal-quality academic articles, threatening the integrity of academia as a whole.
