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 the radio program this week, Glenn Beck and Pat Gray discussed a series of recent polls that suggest presidential nominee Joe Biden's expected lead may be slipping with traditionally Democratic voters.

A new poll conducted by the Jewish Electorate Institute shows that two-thirds of Jewish voters still plan to vote for the Biden-Harris ticket in November. However, President Donald Trump's support within the Jewish community is also the highest among any Republican candidate in recent history.

In more bad news for Biden, a CNN poll (yes, CNN) released last month showed growing support for President Trump among black voters in swing states. Meanwhile, his support among Latino voters remains at roughly 33%.

"I don't think it's going to go the way the Democrats hope that it will," Glenn said of the election. "If you look at the groups that the Democrats have carefully fostered ... that's falling apart. If Donald Trump can grow that by 5%, and hurt the Democrats by 5% ... that alone could swing the election."

We're being set up for a civil war. The Left is grooming us for an Eastern European-style revolution this election, and they're not even trying to hide it any more. The playbook for Mainstreet USA is the exact same that has been used in places like Ukraine, initiated by the same people in order to completely upend the American system.

On his Wednesday night special this week, Glenn Beck takes us through a tale of three chalkboards that will connect the dots: the Obama admin in Ukraine, the State Department's relationship with George Soros, Black Lives Matter and Antifa riots, the Great Reset, public school indoctrination, mail-in voting. It all points to something dangerous happening in November if we don't act now.

The left has already determined that the wildfires raging across the West Coast were definitely caused by climate change and Big Tech is determined to silence anyone who dares suggest otherwise. Facebook even announced a sweeping policy on Saturday to remove posts that claim the fires were caused by arson from far-left activists.

But on his radio program Wednesday, Glenn Beck revealed multiple arrest records for suspected arsonists in California, Oregon, and Washington — and several of those charged and arrested were also instigators in Black Lives Matter rallies, violent protests, and Antifa riots. He also called out the "news gods" in Big Tech, daring them to try to censor his video.

"I asked my staff, to see if there was any evidence [of arson] on the fires. And I don't mean evidence from Twitter. I mean evidence. Is there anybody who has been arrested for arson?" Glenn said. "Well, here they are. And YouTube and Facebook, go ahead. I want you to demonetize this clip. I want you to somehow or another say that we're lying. I want you to throttle this. Go ahead. Because then you're going to have to explain what we got wrong. And I happen to have all the documents right here. So my attorney is really ready for that throttling or demonetization. You say you're a protector of the truth? Great, here it is."

Glenn read off the first 10 arrest records, which combined allege the destruction of more than 120,000 acres and 700 structures, as well as tens of thousands of people evacuated from their homes.

"You want to tell us, PolitiFact, how you came to the conclusion ... that there was no arson in these fires?" Glenn asked. "Can you tell me how you came to that conclusion? Because your fact-check seems to be entirely false."

Former White House press secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders joined Glenn Beck on this week's podcast to share her unique perspective as a trusted adviser and confidante to President Donald Trump for two and a half years, which she also details in her new book, "Speaking for Myself: Faith, Freedom, and the Fight of Our Lives Inside the Trump White House."

Sarah described the unprecedented levels of corruption she saw firsthand during the Russia probe and shocking lengths to which Democratic leaders and the mainstream media would go to "take the president down."

Sarah said she often saw sides of Donald Trump that the media never covered. Recently, she went on the record denying the Atlantic's claims that the president mocked our military during a 2018 trip to France. She was on that trip, she told Glenn, and her account of what really happened paints a very different picture.

"The people who are making this outrageous charge are such cowards for doing so in an anonymous way. If you really believed this, and believed it was wrong, one, why did it take you so long? And, two, put your name on it the way the rest of us have," Sarah said.

"He didn't say those things. Not only was I there that day, Glenn, I spent two and a half years traveling all over the world with the president, watching him interact with men and women of our armed forces almost every single day during that two-and-a-half year period," she added.

"This is a person who loves America and loves the people who allow the rest of us to live in America, free, and have prosperity. And I got to see that a lot. I think it is shameful that people are trying to distort who he is and what he has done, particularly when it comes to the men and women in the military."
