Anti-abortion activist Lila Rose tells Glenn how to fight Planned Parenthood

Glenn will be the first to admit that wants to just be a lazy slug, so the fact that he's planning to get active in the fight for the lives of the unborn shows a unique level of passion. After all, this isn't just talking about high taxes and bad healthcare policy - these are human lives being destroyed by Planned Parenthood. But where does one get started? Glenn invited pro-life activist Lila Rose onto the show to explain how people can start taking a stand today.

Below is a rush transcript of this segment, it may contain errors:

GLENN: Let me go to Lila Rose. She's from liveaction.org. This is a topic that all of us have been on radio for a very long time. None of us have ever really talked about abortion on the air because that's just -- there's no -- there's no faster way to drive listeners to drink or to another station than to talk about abortion. And we've never talked about it up until the last few years. Now it is -- to me, with what's happening with Planned Parenthood, this is such a clear sign of, you're on the book of life or you're on the book of death, that I can't not talk about it. I have to -- I met with my family last night and said, we have to become activists. But I don't even know what that means. And so I wanted to get Lila Rose on. She's with liveaction.org. And she is -- if you don't know who she is, she's one of the more incredible activists. How old are you, Lila?

LILA: I just turned 27. I'm getting up there, Glenn.

GLENN: I know. You're an old lady.

When you were in college, your face, and I think it still is, is put in every Planned Parenthood location as watch for this girl. Because you were making recordings of them. You would go in as an underage girl and show that they were doing illegal things. Right?

LILA: Right. I mean, some of my first investigations of Planned Parenthood exposed their rampant sexual abuse cover-ups of minor girls. So I posed and then later on we trained investigative teams to pose as underage girls or as the abusers of underage girls, including the pimps and the sex traffickers of minor girls. And Planned Parenthood clinics across-the-board in dozens of situations agreed to cover up the sexual abuse of minors or aid and abet sex traffickers. And we also documented many cases where there is actual ongoing lawsuits where young girls were settled out of court -- young girls sued Planned Parenthood for the sexual abuse cover-up that they endured because the best friend of a pedophile or the best friend of a statutory rapist is a reproductive health clinic, quote, unquote, an abortion facility that will deal with the evidence of their crime, that helpless unborn child. And so it's in their best interest to get that little girl a secret abortion so that no one ever knows about the attack against her.

GLENN: That's phenomenal. And you were doing this when you were, you know, a relative kid. Now you're 27. And you have taken the fight against abortion to new levels. I want to ask you as someone who has never been involved in this stuff before. How can I get involved? What do we do as people?

LILA: Thanks, Glenn. I think there's absolutely work for people to do. And there's a few steps. There's some immediate more simple steps. And then there's the more day-to-day grind steps, which takes patience and persistence.

First of all, immediately, we're dealing with the defunding fight on Capitol Hill. We have two Democrats in the Senate, ten more votes that we had in 2007, in the Senate to defund Planned Parenthood. We're five votes away -- five votes away from success. So this is a fight that we have now. We have petitions going.

I know people are like, well, what does a petition do? Your name does count. Our goal is to get to a million signees by the end of August. We're working with other groups, even potentially some other campaigns behind the scenes to get petition signees all together in a database so that we can rally troops.

And right now we're at -- Live Action's petition alone is at 160,000. That should be -- there's no reason that shouldn't be in the hundreds of thousands. We're trying to get up the numbers of people who can get behind defunding Planned Parenthood to show that the country is not only ready for this to happen, but the country demands that we stop funding the abortion industry.

GLENN: So how do we sign that?

LILA: So that's at PlannedParenthoodExposed.com or .org. PlannedParenthoodExposed.org. It has a petition on there. It has information on there that you can share about Planned Parenthood's atrocities. Facts you can share with friends, family, people that may not know the facts. That's the first thing. The second thing is to be bold about speaking about this. Posting about this. Talking about this with friends, family, neighbors. Not shying away from the issue. Because it's too late to shy away from the issue. This is prepped up in our own communities. They're butchering children. They're selling their body parts in an industry making millions of dollars across the country.

The government is funding this on both sides. The government funds Planned Parenthood a half of a billion dollars a year, 1.4 million a day. And then they're funding the National Institute of Health over $60 million for fetal tissue research. So on both ends of the spectrum, the government is paying for this. So talk about it in our communities.

And the last one. This is where the persistence and the day-to-day grind happens. Is get involved. There's work to be done on the pro-life movement. It needs people from all walks of life, all political backgrounds. Every kind of -- every kind of person can be involved in one way or another. There's the compassion side of the movement, making sure that you have the highest and the best technology in your local pregnancy care center. You're caring for women in tough pregnancy situations. You're marketing to them in your communities to make sure that they hear from pro-lifers and those that will help them before walking into an abortion clinic. Praying and counseling outside of abortion clinics. Working with your local community to make sure that the zoning laws or the -- or the regulations for your community or city don't allow Planned Parenthood and abortion clinics to set up shop. Getting Planned Parenthood out of your local schools.

It's amazing to me how many parents are unaware of the way that Planned Parenthood is active to our nation's kids in our own communities at our own schools. And sometimes even contracts with private schools. So working to find out -- get to the bottom of it. Is Planned Parenthood allowed in any way, shape, or form in my school? Making sure that they're not. And then, of course, getting involved politically in our states and then at the federal level. Making sure that we have 110 percent politicians. That we won't stand for anyone who will even be halfway.

Keep in mind, under George Bush -- and I love, you know, President George Bush. I think he had a lot of good things -- I think he had a good heart. But under his administration, four and a half years of a Republican-controlled Senate and House, they still funded Planned Parenthood in the '90s. I was in high school. I wasn't on Capitol Hill the way I'm able to be now. But they were funding Planned Parenthood. So don't think that just because there's an R next to the name of the politician, our answers are going to be -- we're going to have our solution. We need to be active in pressuring and pushing for folks in office to do their job and getting the right people in office. Those are just a few thoughts.

GLENN: I think I have asked that question from people on this show over and over again, and it's always bullcrap answers. That's probably the most complete answer I've ever received from anybody.

LILA: Well, let's do it. Let's do it.

GLENN: Lila, how do you feel -- I mean, you are optimistic. I looked at this do-nothing Congress couldn't even stop the funding of a slaughterhouse. And I look at that as a horrible sign. You actually -- you actually have hope.

LILA: I'm a realist, Glenn. I like you. What I'm seeing though is change. And that's what gives me the hope. I see real change.

Again, in 2011, 42 votes in the Senate, no Democrats to defund Planned Parenthood. Two Democrats now. Fifty-two. It would have been 54 if McConnell and Lindsey Graham had shown up to the vote. That's a whole other story. But McConnell only didn't vote because he wanted to retain the ability to bring the vote up again. So we basically had 54 votes. There's a lot of work, and then there's an independent we need to move and then five more Democrats. There are pro-life Democrats though who voted to protect Planned Parenthood funding.

There's work that can be done behind the scenes here. People's voices do matter right now. I think the worst that the killer of the pro-life movement -- the killer of this country is the idea that people don't change, and things can't change. And that's why our rallying call from the beginning, when we first started doing investigations, before 2011, in 2011 -- yes, we know a Republican-held government funded Planned Parenthood in the '90s. Yes, we know that we've always funded Planned Parenthood for over two dozen years, and it was actually Republicans and Democrats for the architects from the Title X funding that now goes to the abortion industry. Yes, we know those things. But that can change.

The Republican -- not the Republican -- the establishment. The Washington machine, as Ted Cruz calls it, the control, the cartel in D.C. they do not have all the power we think that they have. They are sensitive to the outcry of the American people because they don't want to lose their positions. So don't lose hope and realize that we can make a change. I think that needs to be our message. And we're seeing its success already.

GLENN: Can you address -- because I think most people who are in this audience, they haven't watched the videos. And they don't want to watch the videos. Because they already know it's going to be horrible. And they don't want to -- they don't want to be the person that's posting those videos. They don't even want to think about it. But they support you.

Can you explain why these videos are important? To be shared and to be seen by everybody.

LILA: Yes. And I'll use -- I'll sometimes use this analogy. Every era has its own injustice. And you've talked about this before, Glenn. Every era has its own injustice. And we look back at the atrocities of history and we wonder, how could that have happened amongst good people who were surrounding it?

Nazi Germany. There were some good Germans who were just kind of allowing it to happen. And the trains would roll by with the Jewish prisoners off to their death. And there would be silence in the community, or there would just be inaction from the community. They didn't agree with the regime of the Nazis. But they allowed it.

In our country, slavery, we knew that it was happening in the South. We knew that it was sometimes happening in our own communities. We were uncomfortable. But what did we do to stop the incredible injustices perpetrated against our own brothers and sisters?

Today is no different, except I would argue today is the worst that our country and I believe in many ways human history has ever seen. Because the largest number of the most weakest members of our society are being destroyed by the thousands each day. Over 50 million children since this became legal in 1973 in Roe v. Wade. This is of incredible -- this is of epic proportions, and the crisis intensifies every day it continues, as more people are wounded in the wake of the killing.

So if that's not enough to give people courage -- and I think it is enough to give people courage. If you need a little more courage. Give yourself the encounter to inspire you. To touch your heart with the humanity of a child and the inhumanity of an abortion. By having the courage to watch one of the videos of what Planned Parenthood is doing in our own communities, near to our churches and schools.

I mean, I think that is just a simple plea. I think millions of people have responded to that plea. These videos have been viewed millions of times now. Videos of Planned Parenthood and their abuses have been viewed tens of millions of times, and these ones are making incredible progress, showing Planned Parenthood covering up, Planned Parenthood negotiating -- bartering the sale of baby body parts.

Give yourself that opportunity to be cut to the heart so that you can feel as well as you may know the passion or the -- the realization of what's happening so that you can feel inspired to do something more. We are human beings. We're mind and heart. We're emotions and intellect. We need to be connected to this because it's so sanitized. It's so hidden. It's so full of false rhetoric. It's so politicized. We need to get in touch with what's really happening. And these videos are a door, a window into the facilities that are doing the killings to give us that opportunity.

GLENN: Lila, thank you very much. Appreciate it. And we pray for you.

LILA: Thank you.

GLENN: You are really truly a warrior. God bless you. Lila Rose. She is with liveaction.org. And follow her advice. Follow her advice.

When Bevan Cooney — the former "junior" business partner to Hunter Biden and Devon Archer — went to jail in 2019, investigative reporter and New York Times bestselling author Peter Schweizer thought he'd never gain access to the damning emails Cooney had promised. That all changed three weeks ago when Schweizer was given complete access to Cooney's gmail account.

Schweizer joined Glenn Beck on the radio program Tuesday to describe just some of the business deals revealed within these emails — like Hunter working with an alleged Russian criminal and with Chinese communists to secure their assets, or to secure one-on-one time with his dad, then-Vice President Joe Biden. And all of this new information is completely separate from the emails allegedly discovered on Hunter Biden's laptop recently reported by the New York Post.

"So, I want to make this clear. This [Cooney's emails] has nothing to do with what's on the laptop … It didn't come from [Rudy] Giuliani. It didn't come from anybody else, right?" Glenn asked Schweizer.

"That's absolutely correct," Schweizer confirmed.

He briefly explained how Cooney, a former Los Angeles nightclub owner, is currently serving a prison sentence for his involvement in a fraudulent business bond scheme with Biden and Archer. From prison, Cooney gave Schweizer written permission to access his Gmail account.

"This is really important," he noted. "We're not looking at printouts. Not looking at PDFs. We're actually in his Gmail accounts themselves, sifting through these emails. And there's a shocking amount of information about deals involving China, involving Russia, involving all sorts of things they were trying to pull off."

The king of "No Spin" and bestselling author of "Killing Crazy Horse," Bill O'Reilly joined Glenn Beck on this week's podcast to talk about the latest developments in Joe Biden's Ukraine and China corruption scandal. Now that some of the details are finally coming out in the open, does the average Democrat care? Maybe, but the Left doesn't seem to.

O'Reilly argued there's more hatred for President Donald Trump now than in 2016, and that some people hate President Trump so much that they'd rather vote for the "senile, corrupt" Joe Biden.

"Hunter got tens of millions of dollars from Ukraine, from Russia, from China because his father was vice president. I have no doubt in my mind," O'Reilly said. "But the hatred for Donald Trump overrides that in the minds of millions of viewers. They're saying, 'You know, we'd rather have the senile corrupt guy than Trump.'"

Asked by Glenn if any other Republican running for president would be met with the same level of vitriol, O'Reilly answered, "The Left is the Left. They don't like America. The want to redo the Constitution. They want to take some of our freedoms, like the Second Amendment and the First Amendment, and change them. And they want to destroy capitalism and replace it with a big centralized government in Washington that controls the economy … but I'm talking about the folks. I have liberal friends and I say to them, 'Do you not understand that when you vote for Biden, you're voting against your own self interest?'"

In a phone call with his constituents, Senator Ben Sasse (R-Neb) unleashed a torrent of criticisms about President Donald Trump, saying he "flirted with white supremacists," "kisses dictators' butts," and "spends like a drunken sailor."

On the radio program Friday, Glenn said he was disappointed in Sen. Sasse for apparently forgetting all of President Trump's accomplishments. Because, in reality, Trump has accomplished a lot more than many presidents before him.

Then, for anyone who may have forgotten President Trump's achievements — or who simply hate the man so much they've ignored them — Glenn listed just some of the many things this president has achieved during his three and a half years in the White House.

President Trump has given us great judges on the lower court, 3 judges far superior than Roberts and other bogus constitutionalists as SCOTUS and one just may turn out to be another Clarence Thomas. He kicked the ass of ISIS and came home.

He got us out of the disastrous Iran deal, killed their head of terror, boxed them in and is currently collapsing their economy while also brokering a Mid East peace deal that everyone said could never happen. He moved our embassy to Jerusalem despite the state department, something no president has done even though they all promised.

Yes, he met with the North Korean Dictator. I hated that, but I also hated the fact that no other president did anything and North Korea kept gaining power. He has gotten Europe to pay their share of NATO, brought the Arabs and the Jews together, while smashing the choke hold of the PLO, and stood up to the Chinese instead of selling them supercomputers (Clinton), accepting lead poison in dog food (Bush), or loving the CCP and taking millions in dirty money (Obama/Biden).

He also has defended religious liberty unlike any other president at least in the last 100 years, and is a true pro-life advocate that unlike most republicans backs it up with action instead of just talk.

President Trump has also opened doors that the GOP was too wussy to even try to open with Hispanics and Blacks. He again didn't pander. He instead cleared the dead wood and opened pathways up so they could get higher education, create jobs, and not get lost in the prison system.

He also has defended religious liberty... and is a true pro-life advocate.

President Trump also took on an economy that had been beaten down, a people who had been told "you didn't build that" and, in fact, Obama and Biden claimed that the economy was "as good as it would ever get," that we would never create jobs in sectors ever again.

President Trump gave us the lowest unemployment rate since 1969 (the year I celebrated my 5th birthday,) the lowest unemployment for Hispanics & Blacks ever, and the first real growth in pay that I can remember.

President Trump then responded to the largest pandemic in 100 years by doing a couple of things I have never seen a president do:

  1. America's biggest capitalist shuts down the entire economy and knowingly puts his re-election at risk in order to save people.
  2. Closes travel with China and Europe, only to be called “racist," "xenophobic" and accused of stirring hatred. Now everyone says they were for it, but he stood alone and took the heat.

When everyone bashed him because they thought he would seize control and become an authoritarian by telling states what to do, or taking control of companies and telling them what to produce, he simply asked the free market to step to the plate, because he trusts the people of this country to do the right thing. By not taking control, he was called a dictator and a Nazi. Meanwhile he has been blamed for the blood bath created by Gov. Cuomo's nursing home policies. They said 2 million would die, best case scenario 200,000 — if we did everything right. Gee, seems that we are now in the time period they told us would be phase two, it seems as though we seem to have hit that "best case scenario" at this point.

While all of this has gone on, President Trump has fought the lies that were started by Hillary Clinton's team to smear him as a Russian operative. It was enabled by the Obama White House and included the DOJ, CIA, Dept of State, FBI, and DNI. Did I leave anyone out? Oh, yeah we are now getting evidence that members of the Pentagon may have been involved as well. Not to mention the so-called "press" and Congress who did things that would embarrass not only "Frank Underwood" but also Kevin Spacey. He has single handedly exposed the press for who they are and have always been. Because of his tweets, personal style and frankly balls of steel, he has exposed those who truly are: "Enemies of the people." I hated that when he first said it, but it is true. Any person or group that knowingly lies to destroy our president, our Constitution and the free market, are not just enemies of the people, they are enemies of the freedom of all mankind.

As someone who didn't support President Trump at first (and that is putting it mildly) I remain honest enough to judge him on his entire record. He is perhaps the only man in America that can and has stood entirely alone, surrounded by enemies, surrounded by those who took an oath to protect and defend the Constitution, who are now actively engaged in destroying it and any elected president who stands in their way.

Personally, I have grown sick and tired of spineless, do nothing, old, corrupt GOP politicians who are either part of the problem or too frightened to stand alone and speak up. The vast majority are all "Sunshine Patriots." History will condemn those who did nothing but complain and whine, while others not only rang the bell, but stood and took the hits, who risked it all and lost money, reputation and perhaps, God forbid, some who gave the ultimate sacrifice to fight the evil that rages so clearly against the light.

100 years from now history will judge all of us. So will our children's children. Most will be forgotten. Those who failed to show up on the battlefield or cower in the trees, will be remembered with shame and disdain. Others like President Trump, I believe will be seen as indispensable.
