Description

Listen to front-line stories from guys rescuing kidnapped children from sex slavery. Yep, that's a thing. Right now, there are over 2 MILLION children being sold and traded for sex. Timothy Ballard has saved hundreds of children himself. Tim left the Department of Homeland Security to start a non-profit, child rescue team, called Operation Underground Railroad (O.U.R.). Hear how they do it? It's candid and visceral. It's not explicit, but it's also not recommended for children.

You may know Lindsey Stirling as "the dancing violinist" with over 2 BILLION youtube hits. But after this episode you may know her as a warrior for freedom and collaborator on the score for the upcoming feature film, "The Sound of Freedom". Tim and Mark sat with Lindsey in Hollywood moments after they previewed a directors cut of the upcoming film. In this episode you'll get Tim's initial reaction to the film as well as Lindsey's thoughts on how she might approach music for it. We were touched by her thoughts on freedom and captivity. We love you Lindsey. Thanks for your commitment to making the human race freer.

Have you ever thought about what you would have done in the early 1800's to help end slavery? If you're thinking, "I would have fought to end it." Great News! Here's your chance. Slavery (aka Human Trafficking) is more pervasive today than even back during the Transatlantic Slave trade.  So what are you going to do about it?  Today, Tim and Mark sit with Burgess Owens, whose ancestors came out of the slavery of the American South. He discusses the parallels of then and now and challenges us to take action.  Throughout this episode you'll hear music that was used for comfort and strength by the African American slaves during slavery. There are also some songs from the American Civil Rights Era. They were produced especially for the show. So enjoy!

As an HSI Agent, Timothy Ballard worked in Calexico. His office looked into Mexico and he gets wall politics. Tim is pro wall, BUT not for the purposes that are being touted. He's also pro DACA. Please listen to this completely new take on the hottest issue in American politics right now. 
If you haven't seen the newest documentary about Operation Underground's efforts to end child sex trafficking, then drop everything and sprint to your Amazon Prime account to stream Operation Toussiant. Then listen to Nick Nanton talk about making it in less than 3 months! Nick is the Emmy Award winning director of Operation Toussaint. Like most of us, anti-trafficking  called when he wasn't really looking for a fight, but once it did, Nick answered. In this episode, Tim and Mark travel to Orlando to get Nicks impressions after the big dig through thousands of hours worth of operational footage. What shocked him? What did he have to leave on the cutting room floor? What will he do next to help eradicate child sex trafficking.  Hear the behind the scenes stories that changed Nick forever.

If you have listened much at all to the Slave Stealer Podcast you know what a support Glenn Beck has been to the anti trafficking cause over the last few years. He has helped raise into the tens of millions of dollars to fight it locally and globally. A while ago Glenn agreed to narrate a few of these stories for us.  We hope you'll enjoy glimpse into the world of trafficking and the light at the end of the tunnel that he shines.  We also appreciate the original arrangements of Slave Songs and Civil Rights anthems arranged by Rashida Jordan Call and Kyson Kidd in collaboration with Yahosh Bonner. 
In the realm of Anti-trafficking we run into Godly men and women frequently. In the ranks of the good, is Jason Buttrill. Toward the end he opens up about how he almost blew the operation in order to punish a trafficker on the spot. How did he refrain? Why did he refrain.  Pay special attention to the music on this episode, produced by Kyson Kidd with Rashida Call Jordan and Yahosh Bonner.  When the Saints Go Marching In, Do you Want to Be in That Number?   
The Sound of Freedom

The Sound of Freedom

2019-08-2129:561

A few years ago Alejandro Monteverde started writing a fictional story about child trafficking. Around that time he met Tim Ballard and it caused him to scrap the script... since then he has been finishing "The Sound of Freedom" based on the true story of Tim's journey to where he is now.  Tim and Mark had a sneak preview of a director's cut. Immediately after the film, Mark sat with Alejandro(director and co-writer), Rod Barr (writer), and Brian Scofield (editor) to understand their philosophical and practical approach to telling a rough story so delicately and artfully.  The Sound of Freedom will likely hit screens this coming Spring (2020).   
Special guest, Dave Acosta, is an expert in active shooter scenarios. His approach to stopping shooters is empowering and effective. What is it? Simply put, it's to fight back. In this special episode, Dave outlines a tactical approach to fighting back. He has now instructed over 6000 educators in the USA and internationally.  While we realize that this is a break from the regular trafficking conversations, we also realize that our audience, YOU, are actively searching for ways to protect your children and the children of the world.  Thank you for your continued support.  Tim and Mark   
We've all heard soundbites of White House meetings, but how much behind the scenes have you heard? Well, today that's what we're delivering. Last month Tim Ballard was asked (with not much notice) to meet with President Trump, Ivanka Trump, and leaders of several security agencies to discuss trafficking at the border. We'll also discuss southern border policies that are effecting the well being of children today.  And finally, Tim showed up with a box of surprises, including an unexpected bronze statue... and he's not telling who it is until the end.     
Jessica gives us new perspective about children born, trafficked, rescued, and rehabilitated in America. Warning: Her first story, while not explicit, is kind of a kick in the stomach. It involves a little girl who was trafficked since she was six months old. Jessica took her into foster care as a 6 year old. She discusses some challenges and blessings of her rehabilitation. It's tough to hear, but also rewarding to know that she is on the path to a new life.   Jessica has fostered over 20 children in her short life.  Now she travels the globe interviewing care providers and finding suitable and loving rehabilitation for the survivors that are rescued by Operation Underground Rescue and other great organizations.   
 For those of you that are new to this, Tim founded Operation Underground Railroad in part because his job at The Department of Homeland Security didn't give him the leeway to keep his promise to find a young boy in Haiti, Gardy. Tim and his team have maintained a presence in Haiti for the past 5 years searching for this little boy.  Guesno came to the Slave Stealer studio to walk us through the story in first person. Guesno runs an orphanage in Haiti where he currently takes care of over 100 lost or orphaned children.  Guesno is a soft-spoken man and speaks perfect English with a Haitian Creole accent. At times he's kind of tough to hear, but listen closely and be inspired.  For more information on the Gardy story, see episode 011 Meet Gardy.     
What's it like to be in the home of a trafficker? How do traffickers talk about their own families? In this episode Tim shares face to face encounters with some of the guys helped put away.     
Slave Stealer cohost, Mark Mabry, admits none of his kids (ages 16 down to 7) have seen the documentary "The Abolitionist". Mark talks about the difficulty of explaining something as sensitive as sex trafficking even after going on numerous operations with Tim.  So Tim takes the challenge of explaining trafficking to Mark's twelve-year-old son, Bo. Bo is no stranger to the microphone. He hosts a podcast of his own, you can check it out on iTunes or at Dumbitdownpodcast.com If you have ever struggled to find the words to explain this great plague to young ears, this conversation with Bo and Tim could give you some ideas.   
We have discussed that slavery has never really left the world. That's the bad news. But here is something good... such great evil reveals great heroes. Everywhere in the world there are good people with freedom imprinted on their soul. Recently we've met new heroes around the world. These people give us hope that goodness will thrive even in the face of slavery.

It's been a good year for anti-trafficking causes in general. We're continually amazed at the connections we make. Today we're going to talk about the first time slavery was beaten back and the parallels. We'll revive the memory of William Wilberforce and his platform. How did he bring about massive cultural change that went on to change the whole world. We hope you'll share this.   The cause needs champions.  Thanks,    Tim, Mark, Hugh
