2012: Some candidates that Glenn likes...

Glenn Beck does not endorse candidates, but he does offer his opinion. He has put together a list of some of the people he has met that he believes need to be sent to Congress. He has met each of them and believes that they “get it”.  However, he strongly recommends that uou research these candidates independently and decide for yourself if they represent your values and principles.

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

A real conservative who will be tough on big spenders. Cruz understands what we as a country face economically, and he is unafraid to face those challenges head on. If you’re a Texan or someone who can help Ted Cruz, we ask you to take a look and help Ted Cruz out.

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

Mark Neumann is a strong small government conservative. He stood up to Newt Gingrich when Gingrich was in Congress. First elected to the House of Representatives in 1991, Neumann stood by his values and principles at the expense of his own political career. While in Congress, he fought hard against big spending, and when he refused to vote for bills bloated with pork. While others would march in lockstep with committee leaders in exchange for earmarks, Mark stood his ground and was subsequently thrown off committees. A clear and finance candidate, Neumann believes that America is now ready to face the hard reality of the economy.

Chris Stewart - Utah’s 2nd Congressional District

Chris Stewart is a good friend of Glenn’s and “one of the best men (he) knows”. Glenn met him for the first time about two years ago, and he initially wanted to hire him to work for his company Mercury Radio Arts. While Glenn knew him as a fantastic writer, he is also an Air Force Legend. He is a man of faith, as well as a stand up guy who will hold fast to his principles. He understands the economy, as well as the threats America faces from radical Islam. And while he sees the danger facing this country, he has a strong belief that things could be fixed. While Glenn would hate to see his good friend in the political mess of Washington, D.C. - Glenn has said that he has hope that if Chris Stewart is there, the country can get back on track

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

Dan Bongino is a former, highly decorated, Secret Service agent who left the White House when he realized he hadn’t heard any honesty out of a politician in a long time. He felt that America needs leaders who believed in her and everything she could be. He decided to leave his job and pension and go back to school and get degrees in Psychology and Business Administration. Like many candidates on this list, Glenn believes Bongino is above all an honorable man who understands the threats facing the country from radical Islam and the economy.

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

Dan Liljenquist has an amazing life story. He was almost killed in a plane crash while on a mission trip when he was younger. He lost many friends in the crash. As a man of faith, he understood that he was saved from certain death by God for a reason, and he does not waste a day on anything that doesn’t preserve the honor of the country and his own integrity. He deeply understands what we face as a country economically if we do not send the right people to Washington who will join with others who want to cut big spending.

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

Glenn believes that Jeff Flake is a man who really “gets it” when it comes to the economy. He has a strong record on taxes and spending. In fact, he has a perfect record with Club for Growth.

As Glenn continues to meet with candidates over the next few weeks and months, we will continue to add to this list.

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."
