Some candidates we like...

"I'm not a guy that endorses anybody. I will tell you what I think, but I think I'm going to put together a list because I've met several people that I think we need to send to Congress and I would like you to know them. I'm not endorsing them. I have met with each of them. I think they get it," Glenn said on radio today.

Glenn said he doesn't endorse people because 1) people should be making up their own mind and not listening to others and 2) it's hard to get to know someone well enough for Glenn to make that kind of statement of support in a short meeting.

"You just never know about people. You just never know, you know, and you send them into Washington. God only knows," he said.

Nevertheless, there are some good people he wanted to mention:

Ted Cruz - Republican candidate in 2012 for U.S. Senator from Texas.

"I want to give you some names of some people that I've met with that I think are very good. One of them is Ted Cruz in Texas. If you're in Texas and you can help Ted Cruz, help Ted Cruz."

Mark Neumann -  Republican candidate in 2012 for U.S. Senator from Wisconsin

"Mark Neumann in Wisconsin, here's a guy who stood up to Newt Gingrich back when Newt Gingrich was in Congress. I think Mark served for temporarily there for awhile. He was on some committees and Newt Gingrich said, Don't you dare vote against me or you'll be off every committee and he voted against him and Newt threw him off of every committee and that night, instead of wallowing in it, he wrote a letter to every member of Congress and said, My only regret is I wasn't on more committees to be thrown off of. I wish I had more committees so I could have been thrown off them so everyone could have seen you stand up for what you believe in and that was the end of his career. He's trying to run again and I believe this guy gets it."

Chris Stewart -  Utah's 2nd Congressional District.

 

 

"Chris Stewart in Utah is a very good friend of mine and one of the most stand-up guys I've ever met. "

"He is a guy that I met about two years ago and I've been trying to hire him. He's a great writer and he's -- he holds the flight record for the Air Force fastest around the world flight for the Air Force. This guy is stand-up, buttoned up, nothing's coming through Chris. He's the guy I don't want to go to Washington because I just -- I love my friend. And I also would like him to work for me."

Daniel Bongino - Republican candidate for the U.S. Senate from Maryland.

"Really great guy. This guy was a secret service agent, left the secret service because he started -- he was in the White House. I mean, he was there and he's watching television and he realizes, man, this is the first guy I've seen that makes any sense. He had kind of gone dead and realized that he hadn't heard anybody tell a bit of truth in a long time and decided that he was going to go back to college. He went back to college, got his economics degree, quit, and decided he was going to -- he was going to run for office to make it. Great guy."

Dan Liljenquist - Republican candidate in 2012 for U.S. Senator from Utah.*

"Dan Liljenquist is a guy who I think really gets it," Glenn said.

Jeff Flake - Arizona's 6th congressional district. Republican party.

After going over some of the candidates he had met and liked, he said, "I'll continue to meet with people and I'll pass it to you. What you do with that information is up to you."

 

 

 

 

*Glenn did made a point to say that while he likes Orrin Hatch and feels like he has done good work in Utah in the past, he feels like Dan Liljenquist is prepared to face challenges facing the country.

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.

According to the mainstream media's COVID-19 narrative, the president is "ignoring" the crisis.

On tonight's "Glenn TV" special, Glenn Beck exposes the media's last four months of political theater that has helped shape America's confusion and fear over coronavirus. And now, with a new school year looming on the horizon, the ongoing hysteria has enormous ramifications for our children, but the media is working overtime to paint the Trump administration as anti-science Neanderthals who want to send children and teachers off to die by reopening schools.

Glenn fights back with the facts and interviews the medical doctor Big Tech fears the most. Dr. Simone Gold, founder of America's Frontline Doctors, stands up to the media's smear campaign and explains why she could no longer stay silent in her fight against coronavirus fear.

It's high time to leave the partisan politics behind and focus on the facts about face masks and whether or not they really work against COVID-19.

On the radio program Tuesday, Glenn Beck spoke with Drs. Scott Jensen and George Rutherford about the scientific evidence that proves or disproves the effectiveness of mask wearing to stop the spread of the coronavirus. Then, Dr. Karyln Borysenko joined to break down where the massive political divide over masks came from in the first place.

"I think if we were to talk about this a couple months ago, I might have said, 'Well, there's the science of masks, and there's the emotions of masks.' But, unfortunately, there's something in between," Jensen said. "I would have thought that the science of masks would have to do with the physics of masks, so I did a video a couple months ago where I talked about the pore side of a cotton mask or a surgical mask."

He explained that properly worn masks can help reduce the spread of virus particles, but cautioned against a false-sense of security when wearing a mask because they are far from providing complete protection.

"If you have a triple-ply mask, the pore size will end up being effectively five microns. And five microns, to a COVID-19 virus particle, is 50 times larger. That's approximately the same differential between the two-inch separation between the wires of a chain-link fence, and a gnat," Jensen explained.

"But now what we're seeing is if we have some collision of COVID-19 viral particles with the latticework of any mask ... if you're breathing out or breathing in and the viral particles collide with the actual latticework of a mask, I think intuitively, yes, we can reduce the amount of virus particles that are going back and forth."

Dr. Rutherford said masks are essential tools for fighting COVID-19, as long as you wear them correctly. He laid out the three main reasons he believes we should all be wearing masks.

"So, we're trying to do three things," he said. "First of all, we're trying to protect the people around you, in case you are one of the 60% of people who have asymptomatic infection and don't know it. The second thing we're trying to do is to protect you. The third thing we're trying to do is, if you get infected, you'll get infected at a lower dose, and then you're less likely to develop symptoms. That's the threefer."
