“Evil” conservative Glenn Beck raises $22 million in 2 days to rescue Christians trapped in Afghanistan

Share:

USA- While Democrats hold lucrative fundraisers hosted by Nancy Pelosi (D-CA) mask-less and social-distance-less in Napa, California to raise money for themselves, conservative Christians are making far better use of their money, raising millions of dollars to help rescue Christians from war-torn Afghanistan.

 

The Blaze, founded by conservative Glenn Beck, reports that Beck’s audience raised a staggering $22 million—and rising—over only two days to back the Nazarene Fund, a 501(c)(3) founded by Beck which “works to rescue Christians and other religious minorities from persecution and slavery in the Middle East and across the globe.”

The fund is in the process of attempting to rescue some 5,000 people—mostly women and children—from Afghanistan as the US is complying with a Taliban-enforced deadline of August 31 to remove all American forces from the country.

After Biden suddenly and without advance notice pulled remaining US assets out of the country earlier this month, the country has descended into chaos with the Taliban now in control.

US forces had to return to the Kabul airport in order to attempt to evacuate remaining Americans, as well as Afghans who assisted the US over the past 20 years.

This past Wednesday during his daily talk radio program, Beck urged his listeners to “give until it hurts”—and in typical fashion for conservatives, opened up their wallets and their pocketbooks.

While Beck’s goal was to raise $20 million by last Friday, that number was surpassed by over 10% by early Friday morning.

During his program, Beck pleaded with his audience:

“Every single penny that you can come up with will go to flying those planes and getting those people out. We need, obviously, an enormous amount of money. These are people that are marked for death for what they believe in,” Beck said.

“This is why we started the Nazarene Fund. Don’t wait around for anyone else to do it. Don’t wait around. Please go to theNazareneFund.org and donate…we need your help as soon as possible. I ask that you would give until it hurts today because these people are entirely alone.

And they will be crucified, if you are marked as a Christian, with the Taliban. You know what will happen to them. We can get them out. Be an Oskar Schindler today. Go to theNazareneFund.org

In the first day, the fund realized over $10 million, which led a clearly emotional Beck to give thanks to his listeners.

‘I asked you yesterday if you would give until it hurts. And this is the most remarkable audience I think ever assembled,” said Beck, clearly overwhelmed by his audience’s generosity.

“In a 24-hour period, this audience gave $9,334,652.24. We are halfway there in one day. It is truly a miracle that you, this one audience, gave nearly $10 million yesterday.

I have always said that this audience is going to be the one that saves the country. You might be the one that saves the world.”

 

Beck told his audience that he would need the $20 million in order to secure aircraft, helicopters and people to extract 5,000 Christians whom he said were “marked for death” out of Afghanistan.

He noted that the Taliban had warned only the day before that they would burn Christian people alive, then noted the amount of money raised.

“This is the framework of hope. You are not alone! IT is not just you. I’ve never seen anything like this before. I don’t think any one audience has ever done that!”

Beck continued:

“I have until tomorrow to raise the second half,” he said. “You’ve given so much. The Nazarene fund has put boots on the ground to do what needs to be done, to save thousands of Christians who are in grave danger.

We have the helicopters and the planes standing by. This is a logistical nightmare…but they are marked for death.

So as long as we have the money, as long as our Marines can hold the airports, and as long as there is a Christian left in hiding, we will do what we need to.”

Beck noted that it would take much more than money however, noting that a little help from above would also be necessary in order to accomplish what needed to be done.

“But we need God’s help. We need Divine Providence like we’ve never needed it before. Time is running out,” Beck said.

“People are clinging to the hope that someone will remember them and arise and save them from the blackness that is the Taliban.”

 

Hopefully, the Nazarene Fund can pull this off by next Tuesday, because on Tuesday afternoon, weak, feckless Joe Biden announced that the administration would abide by the Taliban’s threat and extract the US from Afghanistan by Aug. 31.

This is likely the dagger in whatever credibility the US has in the world as its preeminent superpower. Cowering to a bunch of sheep herders with weapons is the ultimate humiliation for our country.

 

While Biden promised that all Americans would be extricated from the country by that deadline, those are hollow promises, given the fact that the White House has no clue whatsoever how many Americans are still in Afghanistan.

Clearly, not all Americans or their Afghan partners, who acted in some cases as interpreters while others acted as informants, are in Kabul. Many are scattered throughout the country in more isolated regions of the country.

As to the Nazarene Fund, by the beginning of Beck’s Friday morning program, donations to the fund had swelled to over $20 million. As of Monday, the fund had raised over $27 million.

Anyone interested in donating to the Nazarene Fund may do so here.

CHICAGO, IL — The Fraternal Order of Police Chicago Lodge #7 has partnered with the National 9-99 Police & Sheriff Foundation to raise money for Chicago Police Officer Ella French’s family.

The fundraiser is on the “Help a Hero” platform, which was originally created for first responders according to the website.

On Aug. 7, Officer French, 29, was shot and killed around 9 p.m. while she and her partner conducted a traffic stop of a vehicle containing three subjects near the intersection of West 63rd Street and South Bell Avenue.

French and her partner pulled over a vehicle for expired plates that were not registered to the vehicle.

During the traffic stop, one of the subjects opened fire, striking Officer French and her partner. Despite their wounds, the officers were able to return fire.

Both officers were taken to the University of Chicago Medical Center where Officer French was pronounced dead. Her partner was admitted in critical condition.

All three subjects in the vehicle fled the scene. Two of the subjects were arrested shortly after the incident, and a third subject was taken into custody the following day.

Two brothers from Chicago were arrested and charged with the murder of French. According to CWB Chicago, both brothers are convicted felons on probation.

Emonte Morgan, 21, is charged with first-degree murder, as well as attempted murder and other charges. He reportedly fired several shots at both officers, striking them both, then fired at a third officer, who returned fire and shot Emonte Morgan in the abdomen.

Eric Morgan, 22, faces charges of aggravated unlawful use of a weapon, unlawful use of a weapon by a felon and obstruction of justice.

Chicago Police Superintendent David Brown said at a press conference that the young woman in the car with the Morgan brothers has not been charged, due to lack of evidence, New York Post reported.

Brown said that investigators are focused on the brothers for Officer French’s killing and the injury of her partner:

“There’s one reason that this happened. One reason. These two offenders killed Ella French and tried to kill [the second and third officer] there.

“That’s the only person we’re pointing the finger at today. I won’t entertain finger-pointing at anyone or anything else. They need to be fully held accountable for her murder.”

However, federal prosecutors have charged another individual, who allegedly purchased the weapon that was used during the incident that killed Officer French and wounded her partner.

On Aug. 9, federal prosecutors charged 29-year-old Jamel Danzy for reportedly buying the gun that was fired by Emonte Morgan during the Aug. 7 incident.

The gun was allegedly bought in Hammond, Indiana, in March and then later provided to an individual in Illinois who Danzy knew could not buy or possess a firearm.

The U.S. Attorney’s Office in Chicago confirmed that the weapon connected to Danzy was recovered from the scene where Officer French was killed and her partner severely injured.

Danzy appeared in federal court on Aug. 9 under charges of conspiracy to violate federal firearm laws, knowingly transferring a firearm to an out-of-state resident and knowingly disposing of a firearm to a convicted felon.

While Danzy may not have pulled the trigger, he could be facing up to five years in federal prison for the charges he’s facing.

The Morgan brothers’ mother, 41-year-old Evalena Flores, has also been arrested after she created a disturbance at Advocate Christ Medical Center in Oak Lawn, where Emonte Morgan is being treated for a gunshot wound to the abdomen.

CBS Chicago reported that Flores “became angry …when she was unable to see her son.”

The New York Daily News added that Flores allegedly kicked a hospital security officer in the groin before her arrest.

Livestream video on social media, reportedly streamed by Flores, shows Flores screaming and struggling with officers.

According to Oak Lawn Police, “Flores will be charged with misdemeanor offenses including battery, resisting a peace officer and criminal trespass to real property.”  She has a court date scheduled for September.

Officer French had served with the Chicago Police Department for almost 3-1/2 years and was assigned to the Community Safety Team. She is survived by her mother and brother, Andrew French.

Andrew French said his sister was not married and had no children, despite stories being circulated on social media last Sunday that she left behind a 2-month-old baby.

Andrew French, who is an Iraq War veteran, told the Chicago Tribune that his younger sister always thought of others before herself, even before she joined the police department:

“My sister’s always been a person of integrity. She’s always done the right thing even when no one’s looking.

“She’s always believed in people and believed in doing the right thing. … She’s always believed in taking care of people that can’t take care of themselves.”

Andrew French also told Chicago Tribune that his sister was a proponent of therapy or social services over more jail time. He said she wanted to see people get the help they needed:

“She was a humanitarian. She believed in human rights. She was one of the officers on the force that thought they needed reform because she’s seen the front line, just like I have.

“She’s always been a very caring person …. When I was in Iraq, me and her, we talked. And she has some attributes that you don’t find in this world anymore.”

Andrew French said her personality traits included being a solid, selfless person who was more concerned with substance than what’s convenient or fashionable:

“She was the epitome of a good Samaritan.”

Andrew French said he is proud of his younger sister:

“She was there for my mom. She was reliable. … She’s my sister, she’s my little sister. And as much as I was there for her when we were growing up, she was there for me. And I was proud of her, I’m still proud of her.

“Like this is — God took the wrong kid.

“I’ve done some really (expletive) things, because being in the Army you don’t do beautiful things at all … but my sister was a wonderful person, in all ways.”

The Chicago Sun Times reported that Andrew French said their mother, who adopted the two of them, gave them everything she could growing up while instilling in them the important values of being kind and helping others in need.

Referring to his mother, French said:

“She raised us to be of service. To care. To have integrity.”

Speaking at a news conference on Aug. 8, Superintendent Brown provided limited information about French, although officials acknowledged she was survived by a mother, brother and other family members.

Brown also praised the courage of his 12,000 police department employees who continue to work despite the death of one of their colleagues, saying:

“They come to work willing to run toward danger, toward gunfire, and they’re willing to sacrifice their lives to save the lives of perfect strangers.

They went to work today after last night’s tragic, tragic events. Others are at work now, right now, continuing this brave, courageous work of protecting the people of Chicago.”
