Beck: "It's a new era"

As other media networks are going crazy as they scramble for clues, listeners and viewers are wondering where they can keep seeing Glenn once his daily TV show ends. So what’s next? Don’t worry, Glenn’s has a plan and he’s been thinking about this new direction for quite a while. He’s not going to be relegated to Twitter, YouTube, or (thankfully!) MSNBC. Glenn hinted at some of these big plans on radio this morning.

“It is a new era. Yesterday, in case you didn't hear and you are tuning in for the first time today and you don't know what's going on with me, I'm sorry to waste your time with something, and if you are a fan and you have come to rely on one of my many branches of my business that being Fox, we announced yesterday that I will be transitioning at Fox,” Glenn said.

“I'm going to remain with Fox producing some specials. I don't want to get into any more detail than that. We are still going to be working together. We signed a new deal with Fox.”

“Beyond that, I am not going to be doing the 5:00 TV show for very much longer. That will be transitioned out of at their convenience. I have told them that I will work and I will honor my contract and do everything that they would ever need all the way. I am not only respectful of Fox and what it is. It is the most powerful name in news. That is not just America, that is in the globe. There is no other news organization like Fox,” Glenn said.

“I remember how hard that was to get anybody to listen when I was over at CNN, and I don't have any illusion to think that I'm anything other than the guy I was when I first walked through the door at Fox, and I know as the door hits me in the butt one day that I will be that same guy, and I know who Fox is. I know who Roger Ailes is. Roger Ailes is the guy if we don't have Roger Ailes we probably wouldn't have had Ronald Reagan as a President. So I honor his service to his country. He's a businessman. That's what he does. He's done an amazing thing for our country. I don't know honestly if we would survive as a country. I don't know if we would still be the United States of America if it wasn't for Fox News and Roger Ailes.”

“The people that have been there all of these years holding down the fort, Bill O'Reilly has become one of my good, good friends. Don Imus, a legend, has become a good friend of mine. My floor crew yesterday, I mean, the show's not over, and I'm not going away, and when I talk to the floor crew yesterday, we all kind of teared up. I mean, okay. I cried. They teared up. . They're the best people I ever worked with. They're just amazing.”

“With that being said, it's a new era.” (editor’s note: emphasis mine)

“I want to talk to you frankly here. As frankly as I can be at this time, but you are a good friend of mine. I hope that you have come to know that I try extraordinarily hard to never dishonor myself. I am a guy who is a work in progress, but I try really hard.”

“I will tell you that part of my frustration is I am a businessman. I am fiercely independent. I have done an independent radio show since I was is 13 years old. Pat knows when he worked with me 30 years ago, 20 years ago, how I am just an independent guy, and I have my own way of doing things,” Glenn said.

“I'm an independent guy, and part of the problem bringing that down to cable news is locked to a certain city. I am locked to other people's time not mine. And other people's money not mine.”

“Sometimes I want to spend more money and some of the Fox people who work on the show have been paid by me, the research that we do. Much of it, I paid for myself. If anybody thinks I got rich off Fox News, you're out of your mind. I spent a lot of money on that show because I believed what I was saying.”

And even though Glenn is leaving his news show, he doesn’t intend to leave a vacuum in the news arena.

“That's why last fall I created The Blaze. You'll notice it's not the Glenn Beck Blaze. You'll notice that I hired really competent, people that have made the industry say what the heck is he doing? I know exactly what I'm doing.”

“It is a new era and The Blaze is going to lead the way. That is only one of the ventures.”

“There will be no interruption between you and I as we start to ramp things up. If I left the show and it is up to Fox when I would leave the show, I will work for as long as they want, but when they're ready I will transition off the show.”

“If I'm not ready with the things that I'm going to launching, I will tell you that I will have the bridge and you and I will meet still every day at Glennbeck.com.”

“I won't charge you anything.”

“I will meet with you every day to make sure you see the things that you see the things that you need to see. But we're also going to be doing things, looking for different audiences, younger audiences, comedy audiences as well. Everyone who thought that they had corralled us in one little space, better look out.”

“Because we're about to saddle up and we're coming riding for you.”

Black Lives Matter protesters sent a shocking, threatening letter to businesses and non-profits in Louisville, Kentucky. The letter made a series of demands related to racial reparations, and threatened consequences if the demands weren't met, the Daily Wire reported.

On the radio program Tuesday, Glenn Beck detailed the letter's list of demands and threats, and pointed out that these tactics are strikingly similar to those we've seen during some of history's darkest chapters.

The letter, which was sent to businesses in the East Market District in downtown Louisville, listed demands such as ensuring that at least 23% of staff are black, providing race and inclusion training for all employees, displaying a written statement professing support for the BLM movement, buying at least 23% of inventory from black retailers, and submitting to external audit.

"Repercussions for non-compliance" to these demands will result in sit-ins and protests being staged outside the business, social media smear campaigns, boycotts, negative media attention, and "invasive reclamation," the letter threatened.

"So, I'm making quite a charge here, but I think it absolutely fits," Glenn said on the show. "Carl Kaufman, the representation that was used by Hitler and his machine, he convinced the youth that they were the answer, they would finally take control, and they would bring equality. [Kaufman said] the Jews controlled everything, and because of the Jews, the Germans really didn't have any freedom. Because of the Jews, they couldn't do anything. They were held down by the Jews. He said, 'We're going to have to boycott those stores. And if those stores don't comply, we will keep our storm troopers outside of the doors.' And they did. They intimidated anyone who walked into those stores. They berated anyone who walked into those stores. They beat anyone who walked into those stores."

"I told you once, that if America goes dark, we'll become the darkest nation ever in the history of the world," Glenn continued. "Guys, we're allowing our nation to go dark. And we're doing it because of fear. Everybody knows this is wrong, but who is going to stand up against it?"

Shortly after appearing on "The Glenn Beck Radio Program" last Thursday, Los Angeles-based emergency medicine specialist Dr. Simone Gold got a call saying she was fired for speaking out about the efficacy of hydroxychloroquine in a now-banned viral video.

Dr. Gold returned to the radio program Monday to detail exactly what happened, the reason the hospitals gave for her firing, and how they threatened to fire her colleagues as well if she "didn't go quietly."

"Most emergency physicians work at more than one [hospital], as I do, and I've actually been fired from both," she told Glenn. "They told me that I appeared in an embarrassing video, and therefore, I would no longer be welcome to work there ... then they said, if I didn't go quietly and I made a fuss, they would have all the doctors in the group, you know, they'd have to go and they'll get a whole new doctor group."

Dr. Gold said she does not regret speaking out about hydroxychloroquine during the controversial "White Coat Summit" news conference held in Washington, D.C., last week. A video of the news conference quickly went viral on social media before being removed by Facebook, Twitter, YouTube, and others for allegedly making false claims related to COVID-19.

"Bring it on," she said. "I want to continue to live in America. I want my children to continue to live in America. I don't want them to grow up in a place like China. When you get to a point where, not only can I not speak as a scientist, as a doctor, for what I know to be absolutely true, but you then want to cancel me and my colleagues, this is not okay. I would much rather fight than not fight ... and I want everybody to know that there are literally millions and millions of Americans who are on our side. Millions. I believe it's the majority."

Glenn then asked Dr. Gold to weigh in on the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention's new guidelines encouraging schools to reopen in the fall and the left's relentless drive to keep them closed.

"There's no actual scientific debate whatsoever if schools should open. None. There's no scientific debate. There's no serious person who thinks schools shouldn't open. Now, [through] some governors and policy makers, there's pressure being brought to bear on school districts, but there's no actual scientific debate. So it's going to come down to parents pressuring their local school districts to act in a responsible fashion."

Fox News host Greg Gutfeld joined Glenn on "The Glenn Beck Podcast" this week to talk about his new book, "The Plus: Self-Help for People Who Hate Self-Help."

Greg admits he is probably the last person who should write a self-help book. Nevertheless, he offers his offbeat advice on how to save America during what has become one of the most tumultuous times in history, as well as drinking while tweeting (spoiler: don't do it).

He also shares his "evolution" on President Donald Trump, his prediction for the election, and what it means to be an agnostic-atheist.

In this clip, Greg shares what he calls his "first great epiphany" on how dangerous cancel culture has become.

"I believe that cancel culture is the first successful work-around of the First Amendment," he said. "Because freedom of speech doesn't protect me from my career being ruined, my livelihood being destroyed, or me getting so depressed I commit suicide. Cancel culture is the first successful work-around of freedom of speech. It can oppress your speech with the scepter of destruction. We don't have freedom of speech anymore."

Dr. Simone Gold joined Glenn Beck on the radio program Thursday to set the record straight about hydroxychloroquine -- what it is, how it works, and the real reason for all the current controversy surrounding a centuries-old medication.

Dr. Gold is a board certified emergency physician. She graduated from Chicago Medical School before attending Stanford University Law School. She completed her residency in emergency medicine at Stony Brook University Hospital in New York, and worked in Washington D.C. for the Surgeon General, as well for the chairman of the Committee on Labor and Human Resources. She works as an emergency physician on the front lines, whether or not there is a pandemic, and her clinical work serves all Americans from urban inner city to suburban and the Native American population. Her legal practice focuses on policy issues relating to law and medicine.

She is also the founder of America's frontline doctors, a group of doctors who have been under attack this week for speaking out about hydroxychloroquine during a news conference held outside the U.S. Supreme Court in Washington D.C.

On the program, Dr. Gold emphasized that the controversy over hydroxychloroquine is a "complete myth."

"Hydroxychloroquine is an analogue or a derivative of quinine, which is found in tree bark. It's the most noncontroversial of medications that there is," she explained.

"It's been around for centuries and it's been FDA-approved in the modern version, called hydroxychloroquine, for 65 years. In all of that time, [doctors] used it for breast-feeding women, pregnant women, elderly, children, and immune compromised. The typical use is for years or even decades because we give it mostly to RA, rheumatoid arthritis patients and lupus patients who need to be on it, essentially, all of their life. So, we have extensive experience with it ... it's one of the most commonly used medications throughout the world."

Dr. Gold told Glenn she was surprised when the media suddenly "vomited all over hydroxychloroquine", but initially chalked it up to the left's predictable hatred for anything President Donald Trump endorses. However, when the media gave the drug Remdesivir glowing reviews, despite disappointing clinical trial results, she decided to do some research.

"[Remdesivir] certainly wasn't a fabulous drug, but the media coverage was all about how fabulous it was. At that moment, I thought that was really weird. Because it's one thing to hate hydroxychloroquine because the president [endorsed] it. But it's another thing to give a free pass to another medicine that doesn't seem that great. I thought that was really weird, so I started looking into it. And let me tell you, what I discovered was absolutely shocking," she said.
