Does Houston, TX have its own Gosnell?

This morning on radio, while looking at all of the controversies and scandal facing the Obama administration, and the massive challenges ahead for the American people, Glenn covered another disturbing story. One that struck the core of the problems really facing the country.

As most were unfortunately aware, Kermit Gosnell is not a lone-wolf late-term abortion monster — there are others committing the same atrocities in this country. And TheBlaze may have found the next.

TheBlaze.com is reporting that another practitioner like Kermit Gosnell may be on the loose in Houston, Texas.

“Harris County authorities and the Texas Department of State Health Services are investigating a local doctor accused Wednesday by an anti-abortion group of performing late-term abortions in 2011,” theHouston Chronicle reports.

The abortionist, Douglas Karpen, has been accused by three former staffers, Deborah Edge, Gigi Aguliar, and Krystal Rodriguez, of performing several illegal abortions. Their testimony, and alleged photographic evidence, was brought to light by Operation Rescue, a pro-life watchdog.

How can we expect to solve issues like the scandals facing the White House if we can't all coming together on something like, 'hey, let's not kill babies?' Glenn asked this morning.

"Now, I know there's a great and powerful debate about abortion in our country, but I don't think there's any debate at all.  If you go in and you are — you want an abortion and the baby is viable, the abortion debate really stops," He added. 

In the report Glenn shared on air there is a video of nurses from the facility discussing what they were doing at the facility.

Glenn played a portion of the video during the radio program.

VOICE:  Most of the time we would see him where the fetus would come completely out and, of course, the fetus would still be alive because it was still moving and you could see ‑‑ of course, you could see the stomach breathing and that's when he would do his ‑‑ he would snip the spine, as they were saying that this doctor did and, of course, the soft spot was one of the spots that he would take the ‑‑ one of the forceps or the, what is it called, the dilators and stick it down the soft spot of the fetus' head when ‑‑

 

VOICE:  You saw this happen? 

 

VOICE:  Oh, yes.  Every ‑‑ I think every morning I saw several, on several occasions.  If we had ‑‑ if we had 20‑something patients, of course, maybe 10 or 12 or 13 or 15 patients would be large procedures, and out of those large procedures, I'm pretty sure I was seeing at least three to four fetuses that were completely delivered in some way or another because sometimes laminaria causes the cervix to get so soft that you don't need ‑‑ you don't need a lot of pulling or anything on it.  Once you take that package out, nine times out of ten, that fetus is ready kind of just to flow from inside of the uterus out into, you know ‑‑

 

VOICE:  When you say package, you mean the laminaria? 

 

VOICE:  The laminaria package insertion, yes, sir.  As soon as that ‑‑ or sometimes he would go ahead and bust the water sac and, there you go.  You know, you practically had a fetus, you know, in the pan.  So ‑‑

 

VOICE:  And you would ‑‑ you see the baby alive? 

The full video can be viewed below. Warning there are parts of the video that are disturbing.

One of the most disturbing part of the video, Glenn noted, isn't simply the content, it's that the women talking in the video were participating in the abortions that were performed. They helped. It wasn't until they saw the Gosnell trial that they knew what was happening was illegal.

Given what the women described in the tape, Pat was rightfully a little skeptical that they didn't know they were doing something wrong. But as Stu pointed out, it's the mental gymnastics they allowed themselves to go through. They were able to convince themselves that because the doctor said it was okay, there was no moral or legal issue.

"These people have convinced themselves," Stu said. "Look at the terminology they used throughout that."

The women repeated referred to viable babies as "the fetus".

Glenn also took note of their cold presence while saying such horrible things.

"If you watch this, these three women are sitting there and they are saying these things rather coldly. Which is disturbing," he said.  "And then they say — they keep calling it fetus.  So you know it's real because that's the block that they've put up.  They call it fetus, but when the ‑‑ when the guy said, "So you saw the baby?"  Yes.  They didn't correct him.  They know.  But they've put this mental block up that it's fetus.  And then she goes on to say, "And you know what was really disturbing, what really, what really would make me angry is these women would come in and they would look to me and say, 'did the baby feel anything.'  First time they used the word "baby."  Did the baby feel anything.  And you wanted to say to them, 'Yes, of course.'  She said, 'I really had a hard time. Why do you care if the baby felt anything?'  You were coming in to, quote, 'kill your baby'. And she said, 'I wanted to say to them, Of course it felt something!'  But then she just got all prim and proper and she said, 'But that's not my — that wasn't my job'.

These women somehow convinced themselves that not only is what they're doing legal, but that it's not their job to be honest with their patients about what's really happening to their children. They no longer knew right from wrong, and took no responsibility for the atrocities they were participating in.

To Glenn, not just this story, but so many of the problems facing us revolve around one thing: responsibility.

"We have abdicated our responsibility," Glenn said.

Americans have to start taking responsibility for their actions, living responsibly, and stop handing our responsibilities over to the government to be distributed elsewhere.

On last week's Wednesday night special, Glenn Beck revealed where the Black Lives Matter organization really gets its funding, and the dark money trail leading to a cast of familiar characters. Shortly after the program aired, one of BLM's fiscal sponsors, Thousand Currents, took down its board of directors page, which featured one of these shady characters:

Ex-Marxist professor and author of "Beyond Woke," Michael Rectenwald, joined Glenn Beck on the TV show to fill us in on the suspicious change he discovered on the Thousand Currents webpage and the Communist terrorists who is now helping run the organization. (Fortunately, the internet is forever, so it is still possible to view the board of directors page by looking at a web archive from the WayBack Machine.)

Rectenwald revealed the shocking life history of Thousand Currents' vice chair of the board, Susan Rosenberg, who spent 16 years in federal prison for her part in a series of increasingly violent acts of terrorism, including bombing the U.S. Capitol building, bombing an FBI building, and targeting police for assassination.

"Their whole campaign was one of unbelievably vicious, murderous cop killings, assassinations, and bombings," explained Rectenwald of Rosenberg's terror group known as the May 19th Communist Organization or M19.

​Facebook BOYCOTT: Major corporations demand MORE social media censorship

A Facebook anti-hate campaign called "Stop Hate for Profit" is gaining momentum, leading large companies like Patagonia, North Face, REI, and Ben & Jerry's to pull advertising revenue if Facebook doesn't do more to "stop the spread of hateful lies and dangerous propaganda on its platform."

But, what is considered "hateful"? It's anything that goes against the mob, and they won't stop with Facebook. Any voices that speak out against the progressive narrative will soon be censored and silenced. The more this campaign grows, the more our freedom of speech diminishes.

Do you recognize your country anymore?

Me neither.

Not only is history being made, it's being rewritten and our history is being lost to Marxist revolutionaries as statues are toppled and Merriam-Webster changes our language. Does this passage from George Orwell's 1984 seem eerily similar to our day?:

"Every record has been destroyed or falsified, every book rewritten, every picture has been repainted, every statue and street building has been renamed, every date has been altered. And the process is continuing day by day and minute by minute. History has stopped. Nothing exists except an endless present in which the Party is always right." 1984, George Orwell

In the digital age, book burning is unnecessary. "Inappropriate" material just evaporates into the ether with a simple keystroke. The days I've been warning about for years are finally upon us and we need to be able to call on the wisdom of our Founding Fathers and other brilliant patriots and if you are relying on digital copies, you could find yourself out of luck.

Knowledge truly is power and we are now in the time where we need all the resources we can get, so I put together this list of the books you HAVE to have in your personal libraries. Along with these selections, I earnestly advise that you keep a journal. Your personal history is powerful and being able to preserve your thoughts and feelings for your posterity to learn from is an invaluable addition to any library.

I'd also suggest you look into Mercury One's "Leadership Training Program," the tools learned will be invaluable as you are able to inspect and learn from original sources as well as being taught by passionate historians. Stay tuned on this front, we have some exciting announcements coming soon.

You ARE the audience that will save the Republic and you have been prepared over the years for the role you need to play. I thank you from the bottom of my heart for being the people that Alexis de Tocqueville wrote about. America is good because it's people are good.

Keep up the good fight and God bless!
