Why does Stu think Planned Parenthood should be shut down?

There are many, many reasons to shut down Planned Parenthood. First and foremost would be they facilitate the murder of hundreds of thousands of unborn babies each year. They also were caught helping sex slaves figure out how to cheat on taxes. Selling body parts of aborted babies was another strike against.

TheBlaze reports:

A video, titled, “Planned Parenthood Uses Partial-Birth Abortions to Sell Baby Parts,” from the Center for Medical Progress, a group concerned with medical ethics, features comments from Dr. Deborah Nucatola, Planned Parenthood Federation of America’s senior director of medical services, allegedly showing her describing how some doctors carefully conduct abortions that leave fetal body parts in tact.

PAT: Incredible story with Planned Parenthood. I mean, we know that's an evil organization to begin with, founded by an evil person, Margaret Sanger. Whose goal was to eliminate minorities, especially blacks. Look it up. If you don't know. It's a story. It's true. She was a progressive.

And she was not a good person. And Hillary Clinton is a big, big fan of Margaret Sanger.

STU: Uh-huh.

PAT: And we'll have to play this some other time. But I love what she said when she was asked about that. You know, despite the fact that Margaret Sanger had these genocidal tendencies, how are you such a big fan of her? And she said, well, I'm a fan of Thomas Jefferson too who owned slaves. That's not everything she did. Oh, okay. All right. Good comparison too. Good analogy.

STU: Cooked a good omelet too. He's kind of known for his other work.

PAT: Volkswagen. Good things.

STU: It's amazing. It's not just Hillary, she's a progressive hero. And, you know, it's a right of religious fervor basically at this point to -- if anyone tries to --

PAT: And why? Have you ever wondered why the abortion thing is so critical to them? Why removing babies from the womb is so important to them? There's money in it. There's just a ton of money in it. Planned Parenthood makes a lot of money with it.

STU: Yeah.

PAT: Democrats make a lot of money from Planned Parenthood. There's just money. Follow the trail of the cash. And I think you might have a clue as to what's going on.

STU: And how do you make money off of abortions? Obviously, number one. You're charging the person to do them. You've got -- all sorts of different funding that comes from not only charities, but governmental institutions.

PAT: Yeah, including federal funding now.

STU: Which they, of course, said would never happen. But beyond that, you get a nice collection of body parts of dead fetuses that you can sell.

PAT: Which is great news we're finding out now. I didn't even -- I mean, I wouldn't have even -- would you have thought to guess that that part was going on? That they were selling body parts of aborted fetuses.

STU: It certainly doesn't shock me. I'm not shocked by anything that these people will do. To see the video. The video is done -- excuse me -- Center for Medical Progress and live action news. It's one of these behind the scenes undercover videos. And you have to see the video. The way they're discussing selling these body parts, including, by the way, in the video, you can see an online order form to order a certain amount of livers. A certain amount of hearts.

And to see her discuss this while just nibbling away at a delicious salad at a restaurant, as if it's something you discuss in polite company is quite amazing.

PAT: So these would have to be pretty developed babies.

STU: Yeah.

PAT: To be harvesting organs to sell to people?

STU: I'll give you this quote. I don't think you have this in your audio. Because it's blatantly. She describes partial birth abortion which is illegal. Illegal. You can't do it. This is how she gets around that. She says the federal partial birth abortion plan is a law and laws are up to interpretation. So if I say on day one I do not intend to do this, what ultimately happens doesn't matter. Now, you say, okay, that's a person blatantly going around the law. I mean, she's admitting it on camera. This is not just some employee. Because we've seen it before, where it's some employee working at a center and she's doing something blatantly illegal.

The woman who is saying this is the Senior Director for Medical Services at Planned Parenthood. This is not some low-level person. This is the Senior Director for Medical Services. She is describing in-depth about how --

PAT: At the Planned Parenthood in Bemidji, Minnesota? Like, just the overall Planned Parenthood?

STU: Yeah, a top Planned Parenthood executive. Senior Director for Medical Services is not nobody. She's describing -- she goes into great depth through the videos. We'll go through audio in a second. About how when they kill the child, they crush the head and they'll crush other parts of the body. But they try to avoid the organs because they can sell those. And they go through all this -- all of this rigamarole to make sure that they don't harm those precious organs that could bring in 30 to $100 per specimen.

PAT: Thirty to $100. That's it?

STU: Uh-huh. They talk about cutting off legs and sending them to people. They talk about -- they talk about how much people really want liver. Apparently it's a hot item. Hot commodity on this market. By the way, selling body parts of fetuses is also blatantly illegal. In any rational country. Assuming this video checks out. Which it has been released today. So it's very early on. But no one is denying it's her saying these things. Assuming that this is true. This should shut down the entire organization.

PAT: It should. It won't.

STU: It is -- when you create an online order form. This is not a whimsical person saying, maybe we could sell a couple of these things. You have an online form for illegal activity. They shut down -- what was it -- Silk Road? They shut down these things that sell drugs on the internet. You're selling body parts on the internet. This entire organization should be shut down if this is accurate.

JEFFY: And I got news for you. When you start out the day saying, gee, I'm not going to do that, but you still mean to do it, uh, the police still arrest you.

STU: Yeah. You should know that, Jeffy, better than anybody.

But if you say, look, as long as we said we didn't mean to do a partial birth abortion, but then when it happens, we do one so we can keep the organs. Oopsy. That's the sort of thing that is difficult to prove, unless you have someone, I don't know, who is the Senior Director for Medical Services admitting it on camera.

PAT: Wow.

STU: Should we play some of these clips? It's pretty amazing.

PAT: Yeah.

VOICE: We'll give person specific nodes. An essay. I was like, wow. I didn't even know. Good for them. Yesterday was the first time she said people wanted lungs.

STU: There we go. So she says a lot of people want different parts for different nodes. Yesterday was the first time they asked us for lungs. Wanted some lungs. We sold them lungs.

PAT: Are these --

JEFFY: Who is buying?

PAT: Yeah, is this for implant?

STU: I think medical testing.

PAT: Because you can't take a liver from a baby that's unborn and implant it in a human being. Right? And keep them alive with it, I would think. So it's for testing. I guess research.

STU: Research and whatever else. Who knows. The reason she's telling people this is she believes they're buyers.

PAT: And Glenn asks this question all the time, who have we become? If we tolerate this, if we put up with this, if we don't stand against it, who are we?

JEFFY: We have people shutting down facilities because they have monkeys caged up to test.

PAT: Yeah. You're spraying hair spray in their eyes. Or you get shampoo in their face.

JEFFY: But this is okay? No.

PAT: Of an animal, of a monkey or a rat, and we're shutting down facilities. Yeah, but this is okay, with human beings. Unbelievable.

VOICE: Yeah, liver. Yeah, liver is huge.

VOICE: That's simple. I mean, that's easy. I don't know what they're doing with it. I guess they want muscle.

VOICE: Yeah, a dime a dozen.

PAT: So what essentially was said there. Could you tell?

STU: Yeah. It's livers. People -- livers are the hot thing on the market. And I think that's when he says they're dime a dozen. That's the buyer kind of just egging the whole thing -- at that point, he's just sort of echoing what she's saying. She's flippant. She has a bite of her salad on her fork. She's waving her hands back and forth.

PAT: So they're just at a restaurant, talking about this?

STU: That's all that room noise you hear. And why it's difficult to hear. They transcribe it on the video. I'll post this on StuFacebook.com. Go to my Facebook page. We'll post it in just a second. You have to watch this. This is eight or nine minutes the whole thing. You'll get the point before that. But just to get -- it's worth watching the whole nine minutes. This is a huge organization that Democrats support, that is in the public domain all the time for federal funding. And that are selling livers on the -- on the -- on online order forms. Blatantly against the law. Skirting abortion law. Admitting it on camera with top level executives. This should be the biggest story in the country. Obviously the Iran thing will be big today. But this should be the biggest story in the country. This is a huge deal. Will the media pick up on it at all?

PAT: Here's more.

VOICE: How much of a difference can it actually make if you know what's expected or what we need?

VOICE: It makes a huge difference. I would say a lot of people want liver.

STU: A lot of people want liver.

VOICE: And for that reason, less providers (inaudible).

STU: Okay. Stop for a second. So he's saying, like, what parts can I get? Essentially, the buyer. And she's responding, well, if I know what you want, we can take certain procedures, certain measures to make sure we protect it. So, you know, they will use the ultrasound that they don't want to make anyone have before they abort the child. They will utilize that to make sure they're crushing other parts of the body to kill the child so that they don't crush the liver so they can sell the liver. She's talking about it basically that flippantly, as you can hear. It's hard to pick up. But you can get her tone of voice as she's saying it.

PAT: And they don't want to do the ultrasound. Because 90 percent of women that see the ultrasound don't want to go through with the abortion because they understand what's inside them and it's not just their body at that point, and they know that.

STU: Right. Again, the whole argument of the abortion thing in the first place is that this is a meaningless clump of cells. But, apparently, that meaningless clump of cells has value on the open market, so therefore it's not so meaningless anymore.

PAT: Wow.

VOICE: Forceps. (inaudible) Of the procedures. Calvaria. Calvaria, the head is --

STU: She's talking about the head. She's talking about the calvaria, which is the head. And she's discussing about how they'll reverse the body to be born feet first so that they can get this procedure done, get the organs and still crush the head inside.

PAT: In a partial birth abortion.

STU: Which is blatantly illegal. Which she goes on to admit that she can't do unless she acts like she didn't mean to do it. Like if you go down the road and something goes wrong, you can still theoretically do this under the law, but with the intent in advance, you certainly can't. It's a federal crime.

VOICE: Yeah. Most of the other stuff can come out intact. It's very rare that they have that effect (inaudible).

VOICE: To bring the body cavity out intact and all that?

VOICE: Yeah. Exactly. Then you kind of (inaudible).

STU: So basically. You can't pick up any of that. It's too hard to hear. She's saying, you can get the rest of the body intact. It's worth hearing with the audio, so you know this stuff exists. We're not making this stuff up. She says, at one point, we've been good at getting the heart, lung, and liver because we know, well, we're not going to crush that part. I'm basically going to crush below. I'm going to crush above and see if I can get it all intact.

This is a human body. A live person she is talking about this way.

She goes on to, you know, talk about, you know, the procedures they go through. Specific procedures that they go through to avoid damaging these organs that they can sell. And they have screen shots of the online order form. This --

PAT: It's soul crushing.

STU: It's soul crushing. It's one thing to talk about a bad organization that could potentially hopefully get shut down or at the very at least have trouble because of this. What we're talking about is human people.

PAT: It will be interesting to see if this goes anywhere. It will be interesting to see if anyone talks about this today.

STU: Can there be anymore of an open-and-shut case? This is not one of those things where you're guessing at their intent. She's telling you.

PAT: No. And like you said, it's not some janitor at Planned Parenthood that they caught on an open mic. This is a top-level executive.

STU: Because some of the videos you've seen, oh, well, they're registering voters. Some person registering voters making $9 an hour tells you to break the law. That's one thing. This is one of the executive-level people at Planned Parenthood saying it's their procedure to intentionally avoid partial abortion law.

The Supreme Court slapped down New York Democratic Gov. Andrew Cuomo's COVID-19 restrictions on religious gatherings Wednesday, arguing that strict limitations on the number of people in churches, synagogues, and other houses of worship — while liquor stores, bike shops, and many other non-religious places face few or no restrictions at all — are in violation of the First Amendment.

On the radio program Monday, Glenn Beck and Stu Burguiere applauded Justice Amy Coney Barrett, who reportedly cast the deciding vote in the 5-4 ruling, as well as Justice Neil Gorsuch who took specific aim at Gov. Cuomo for limiting religious gatherings to as few as 10 people in some areas, while imposing "no capacity restrictions on certain businesses he considers 'essential'."

"It turns out the businesses the Governor considers essential include hardware stores, acupuncturists, and liquor stores," Gorsuch said. "Bicycle repair shops, certain signage companies, accountants, lawyers, and insurance agents are all essential too."

"Government is not free to disregard the 1st Amendment in times of crisis," Gorsuch wrote in a separate opinion.

Gov. Cuomo has since called the Supreme Court ruling "moot" and "irrelevant" because he had recently lifted restrictions in most of the affected areas.

"This is a trick they play all the time. They've done this with Second Amendment cases as well," Stu noted. "They'll put a ridiculous restriction in that's obviously not constitutional, keep it in place for a year while it goes through the courts, and right before it gets to the Supreme Court they withdraw the rule. So then the case gets thrown out because it's moot."

Hey Joe, THIS is how you handle terrorists

Wikimedia Commons

If you haven't seen the new Apple TV+ drama Tehran, it's definitely worth your time. It tells the story of an Israeli spy who sneaks into Iran to set up an attack on Iran's nuclear program. Now that the new Bond movie is delayed, this show has a little bit of everything to hold you over: international spies, hackers, double agents.

But I digress...

No matter how Hollywood tries to invent these stories — and this one is definitely good — they always fall short of what happens in real life. What happened in Iran this past Friday is a movie waiting to happen.

What happened in Iran this past Friday is a movie waiting to happen.

Iran's top nuclear scientist, Mohsen Fakhrizadeh, was assassinated as he was traveling to his private villa just a few miles east of Tehran. The operation involved a team of over 60 people. Around 50 logistical support agents backed up a dozen gunmen. They knew everything. His schedule, his private address, his classified movements, the route...

Fakhrizadeh was traveling in the middle of three armored vehicles. When they approached the ambush site, the hit team cut off all the electricity in the surrounding area. A car bomb was then remotely detonated, taking out the rear vehicle in the convoy. 12 gunmen proceeded to open fire on the other two cars. Iran's top nuclear scientist was dead, and NONE of the hit squad were wounded or arrested.

Now you can already guess where the blame is being directed this morning. Almost immediately, the fingers began to point at both Israel and the United States. The mainstream media is trying to paint this as an effort by Trump to sabotage a Biden effort to restart the Iran Nuclear Deal. Remember that "masterful" stroke of Middle East foreign policy? You know, the deal that included $150 BILLION — in cash — that Obama and Biden knew would be used to kill Americans and destabilize the entire region. Remember that?

They said it was impossible... but Trump did it.

They claimed their way was the only path to peace. What did they get from it? Iran spread out all the way to the literal doorstep of Israel. The elite Iraqi troops of the Republican Guard were staging in Syria, plotting that ultimate attack to take back Jerusalem. The entire region was set to explode... but then Trump scuttled the deal. What did it lead to? Historic peace agreements between the Arab world and Israel.

They said it was impossible... but Trump did it. He reimposed sanctions and launched a campaign to kill terrorists rather than give them money.

John Brennan took to Twitter this weekend to call the assassination a criminal act.

It echoes what they said when the top terrorist in the world — Qassem Soleimani — was assassinated in Iraq. Coincidentally, the Iranian government published artwork over the weekend depicting Soleimani and the, now dead, nuclear scientist standing side by side.

You see, now matter how people like Brennan and Biden might try and say otherwise, this is exactly the type of person Iran's "Robert Openheimer" was: a terrorist in the same category as Soleimani (but obviously with a lot more dangerous capability).

Iran has been protecting this man for two decades. They called him merely "an academic," but denied the UN IAEA inspectors to ever question him.

The rhetoric Iran fed the global community was that their nuclear program didn't have anything to do with weapons, and that this nuclear scientist was involved in research to improve their energy programs. But in 2007, the CIA said this was a cover story. In 2008, the United States froze his assets, and the IAEA made it public that this scientist was leading Iran's nuclear weapons project.

Iran called it "Projects 110 and 111." Fakhrizadeh was tasked with finding out how to miniaturize a nuclear warhead and make it durable enough so that it could survive re-entry into the atmosphere on top of an ICBM.

There can be no accommodation with terrorists.

Obama and Biden's nuclear deal didn't stop ANY of this. Israel revealed in 2018 that Projects 110 and 111 continued. Fakhrizadeh was specifically called out as still being the main man in charge.

Biden thinks his policy of accommodation will somehow bring us the peace that Neville Chamberlain once thought was possible with Hitler. When has this borne fruit with any maniacal tyrant or terrorist... ever?!

And that's exactly what Iran and their thugs are. They're terrorists! They're not a legitimate regime. Long before ISIS, the terrorists in Iran stole a country, planning to spread their caliphate all over the world. Members of Al Qaeda, despite being Sunni, enjoy free sanctuary under their protection. They want to burn Israel to the ground. They chant "death to America"... It's actually a holiday there.

There can be no accommodation with terrorists. Biden wants peace with Iran, and he'll probably roll out a red carpet and offer them a few hundred billion more dollars. We know this doesn't work. To quote Reagan, "there's one way to have peace and you can have it in this second... surrender."

That's how you deal with terrorists, and — whether we were involved or not — another one was just taken out.

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."
