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. 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.

How does a sports writer know how to fix America, and America's racial dilemma?

In a special edition of the "Glenn Beck Radio Program," Outkick sports columnist Jason Whitlock filled in Tuesday for Glenn to explain how we can bring America back together, lean into racial harmony, and restore the values of our Founding Fathers. Because if not us, then who will?

Jason started out by explaining how, during a recent appearance on the program, he felt a spiritual connection with Glenn, regardless of physical differences, as both share a common passion for God and country.

"Glenn and I share a kindred spirit. A kindred passion," Jason said. "We have two things that we love and are passionate about: God and country. I am not a minister. I'm a flawed sinner just like Glenn and just like you. But I am a believer. Believers share an energy that connects them, that cuts through our physical differences and makes those differences irrelevant relevant. That's what I felt when I met Glenn, an energy and a spirit that connects us. We are broadcasters, media personalities, operating in separate spaces, trying to talk to Americans, who share our passion."

Jason went on to say that he believes there are forces operating, both outside of and inside America, that are working to separate America from God, and that much of what we've witnessed in 2020 — from the racial division stirred by the mainstream and social media, to the rioting and looting by Antifa and Black Lives Matter, to the "remaking of the sports world into a shrine that celebrates resisting criminal suspects and denigrates this great country at every turn" — are symptoms and consequences of America's enemies separating God and country.

"We are one nation under God. We are nothing without Him," Jason continued. "The flawed sinners who founded this nation baked God into this country with their Declaration of Independence. We hold these truths to be self-evident, that all men are created equal. That they are endowed by their creator with certain unalienable rights. That among those, are life, liberty, and the pursuit of happiness. The foreign and domestic enemies of this nation are baking a new American cake. God isn't an essential ingredient in this new cake. He isn't an ingredient at all. The removal of faith is sewing the disharmony that is terrorizing and destroying the United States of America.

"Why am I here today? I'm here to tell you how we take our country back, how we restore the freedoms and the liberties our enemies seek to remove in their remaking of a godless America."

One of the most shocking things British journalist, political commentator, and author of "The Madness of Crowds," Douglas Murray witnessed during his recent stay in America, was how many Americans are acting as if they live in 1930s Germany or behind the Iron Curtain, afraid to stand up and speak out because they're afraid of the consequences.

Murray joined the "Glenn Beck Podcast" this week to explain why he believes the state of America is actually worse than we realize, and how the Left's obsession with rewriting history has ushered in guilt, fear, and a "silent majority."

Murray said he's particularly "fed up" with those on the Right who are afraid to voice their opinion because they don't want to become the target of leftist mobs on social media.

"Do you think anyone in history who told the truth had an easy time? You've got the easiest time that any opposition movement ever did in history," Murray said.

"You cannot have these people in America living in a free society — which is for the time being free — pretending that they live under the circumstances of Jews in 1930s Germany," he added. "Speak up. Speak out. Don't be a silent majority; be a very damn noisy majority. And don't put up with the oppression of people who are totally insincere ... they want to make money. They want to win. Nothing more. Call them out ... and get back to what you should be doing as a nation."

New York City shut down its schools over the coronavirus with barely any notice. But even before that, Governor Andrew Cuomo apparently wasn't in the mood to be asked about it, and he made that very clear to reporters.

Asked on Wednesday whether parents could expect schools to be closed as soon as Thursday, Cuomo mocked reporters for their "obnoxious and offensive" questions and accused them of not paying attention. Watch the testy exchange for yourself here.

On Thursday's radio program, Glenn Beck and producer Stu Burguiere had plenty to say about Stu's least favorite governor and the decision to close schools. But Glenn also offered his own theory on why coronavirus restrictions have become so political: Americans refuse to be forced into submission.

Everything comes down to the two Senate runoffs in Georgia. If we lose both races, we lose the country. Democrats know this and are pouring in millions to usher in a Marxist agenda.

As the Left tries to hide how radical the two candidates really are, Glenn takes us inside the Democrat war room to expose the wolf in pastor's clothing, Raphael Warnock, and America's Justin Trudeau, Jon Ossoff. Socialism, the Green New Deal, and "defund the police" are all on the table. And Glenn warns of what's to come if conservatives don't activate: Chuck Schumer will weaponize the Senate, and the radical Left will launch an all-out assault to ravage the Constitution.
