BOMBSHELL: Under guise of foreign aid, USAID funding terror groups with taxpayer money

The larger a government gets, the more corrupt it tends to become, and in America our government has gotten so big that no one even seems to know exactly how many government agencies exist. If you ask the Unified Agenda of Federal Regulatory and Deregulatory Actions, the answer is 60. The Administration Conference of the United States says it's 115, and the Department of Justice reports there are at least 252.

The truth is we have a bureaucracy of unknown number and size side-stepping Congress and pursuing policies the American taxpayers would never approve. Case in point, a National Review report last week revealed that the Obama Administration knowingly approved a grant of at least $115,000 (provided by tax dollars) to fund a designated terror organization with direct links to Osama bin Laden.

The story goes back 14 years when the US Treasury Department caught a group called the Islamic Relief Agency (ISRA) raising funds to help Jihadist groups, including $5 million for Osama bin Laden himself. The ISRA even reportedly helped "relocate [bin Laden] to secure safe harbor for him." The Treasury Department designated ISRA as a "terror-financing organization."

But, wait, there's more …

The story doesn't end there. Ten years after the terrorist-financing designation, the Obama administration specifically approved a grant of at least $115,000 to the ISRA — even after learning of its connections to Osama bin Laden.

The agency within the Obama administration that officially signed off on the dubious grant was a group called the U.S. Agency for International Development, otherwise known as USAID. In July 2014, USAID awarded $723,405 to an international evangelical charity, World Vision Inc., of which $200,000 was to be directed to ISRA. According to USAID, World Vision alerted the granter of the ISRA's terrorist-financing designation but, incredibly, $125,000 of the original grant amount was still authorized.

Who is USAID?

According to their website, USAID "leads international development and humanitarian efforts to save lives, reduce poverty, strengthen democratic governance and help people progress beyond assistance." So, they're a foreign aid group — that's good, right? But if that's the case, why were they running a top-secret espionage program in Cuba to push people toward dissent, as was disclosed during the Obama administration? Isn't that why we have the CIA, an intelligence agency that faces oversight by Congress and reports directly to the president?

"One government agency consistently pops up right at the center of some of our darkest and most closely guarded secrets … It is the United States Agency for International Development," said Glenn Beck on today's show. "The more you look into USAID, the more shocked you will become."

USAID's dubious undertakings go all the way back to the Cold War. In the late 1950's, a USAID official named Dan Mitrione became notorious throughout Latin America for giving South American police forces "instruction in torture and techniques [that] were copied from the Nazis." This included genital mutilation and forced sterilization.

From 1996 and 1998, at least 300,000 Peruvian women — all from poor backgrounds — were sterilized against their will during a campaign that "came about as a poverty reduction strategy." The campaign received $35 million in funding from USAID.

"I told you this gets dark, but we're just getting started," explained Glenn.

During his campaign, President Joe Biden survived scandal after scandal involving his son Hunter — the Ukraine/Burisma scandal, the laptop scandal, the one involving a stripper from Arkansas and a long-lost child. And yet, after it all appeared to have been swept under the rug, Hunter has now released a memoir — "Beautiful Things."

Filling in for Glenn Beck on the radio program this week, Pat Gray and Stu Burguiere discussed Hunter's "horrible" response when asked on "CBS This Morning" if the laptop seized by the FBI in 2019 belonged to him and reviewed a few segments from his new book, which they agreed raises the question: Is Hunter trying to sabotage his father's career?

Countless corporations — from Delta Air Lines, Coca-Cola, and Porsche to UPS and LinkedIn — are calling out the Georgia voting laws, calling them "restrictive," "racist," and "discriminative." Meanwhile, words like "stakeholder" and "equitable" are starting to show up in their arguments.

On the radio program, Glenn Beck gave the "decoder ring" for what's really going on here, because our society is being completely redesigned in front of our eyes.

There's a reason why all these big businesses are speaking out now, and it has very little to do with genuine ideology, Glenn explained. It's all about ESG scores and forcing "compliance" through the monetization of social justice.

Glenn went on to detail exactly what ESG scores are, how they're calculated, and why these social credit scores explain the latest moves from "woke" companies.

Dallas Jenkins is a storyteller — and he's telling the most important story of all time in a way that many believed was impossible.

Jenkins is the creator of "The Chosen," a free, crowdfunded series about the life of Jesus that rivals Hollywood productions. And Season 2 could not have arrived at a better time — on Easter weekend 2021. Church attendance has dropped, people are hungry for something bigger than all of us, and many are choosing social justice activism, political parties, or even the climate change movement as "religions" over God.

This Easter weekend, Jenkins joined Glenn on the "Glenn Beck Podcast" to discuss the aspects of Jesus that often get overlooked and break through the misconceptions about who Jesus really is to paint a clear picture of why America needs Emmanuel, "God with us," now more than ever.

Award-winning investigative journalist Lara Logan joined Glenn Beck on the radio program this week to argue the Biden administration's border crisis is "enabling" drug cartels, allowing them to exploit migrants, use border wall construction roads, and cross the border much more easily.

Lara, who has witnessed and experienced firsthand some of the worst violence around the world as a war correspondent for CBS News, told Glenn it's "not an overstatement" to call the cartels in Mexico "the most violent and powerful criminal organizations on the face of the earth." And while they're "at war with us, we've been asleep at the wheel."

But Lara also offers solutions that the U.S. can enact to stop these horrific atrocities.

"There's more than 30,000 Mexican civilians who are massacred every year in Mexico by the cartels. And that's just the bodies that the Mexican government owns up to or knows about, right?" Lara said. "There's Mexicans buried in unmarked mass graves all across the country. I mean, everyone knows that the violence of the cartels is not like anything anyone has ever seen before. It even pales in comparison to, at times, to what terrorist groups like ISIS have done."

Lara went on to explain some of the unspeakable acts of violence and murder that occur at the hands of the Mexican cartels — 98% of which go uninvestigated.

"That's not unprosecuted, Glenn. That's uninvestigated," Lara emphasized. "[Cartels] operate with impunity. So the law enforcement guy, the policemen, the marine, the National Guardsmen, who are trying to do the right thing, who are not in the pocket of the cartels — what chance do those guys have? They've got no chance. You know where they end up? In one of those unmarked graves."
