Glenn’s interview with Rep Louie Gohmert

Wednesday Rep Louie Gohmert gave a fiery statement on the floor in which he hammered Barack Obama’s failed foreign policy efforts. Glenn invited him onto the radio show this morning to discuss the President and the ongoing chaos in the Middle East.

GOHMERT: Hey, Glenn.

GLENN: How are you, sir?

GOHMERT: Well, better since you're there helping to stir up the people.

GLENN: You have the ‑‑ you gave a great speech on the floor of the House Wednesday night and you were the most viewed item on TheBlaze all day yesterday. I don't know if you know that. People ‑‑

GOHMERT: Well, I was just ‑‑ Keith let me know that. I was actually shocked because I left the floor feeling empty, I didn't feel that good about it, I just ‑‑ you know, like you, you know, you're just so broken hearted and you see what's happening and what we're not getting done.

GLENN: The House voted yesterday 329‑91 for a six‑month continuing resolution to maintain government spending at just over a trillion dollars. Allen West voted for it, Paul Ryan voted for it. You did not?

GOHMERT: I'm ‑‑ I left broken hearted over that. Glenn, that CR, continuing spending at the same level, means that after the biggest wave election since the 1930s, 87 conservative freshmen come in, that means we will have gone two years with this great group of freshmen, the new majority, and have cut nothing. How can you feel good about that?

GLENN: So is there any chance of defunding Egypt and defunding the aid that we're sending to Libya and Egypt?

GOHMERT: The last hope for really effectively doing that is in the Senate. Rand Paul and Jim Inhofe in particular are demanding that they not pass their CR until we ‑‑ they specifically include language that says money will not go there, at least suspend the money until we have a verified certain ally in those countries, which we don't, as you know. And our Republican leadership is saying, "Hey, you know, we don't have to worry because, you know, we put specific language in our appropriations that will carry over that says, you know, you've got to meet these requirements to get money." Glenn, we just saw Hillary Clinton in the last month come back and say, "No, no, we're going to give Egypt a waiver from those requirements." So it's a little empty to be saying, "Yeah, we've got language in existing legislation that will make sure they don't get it if they don't deserve it." Kind of like Solyndra

GLENN: Representative Louie Gohmert from Texas, one of the only guys who ‑‑ I shouldn't say that. There's several of you now.

GOHMERT: There are a bunch of good guys, yes.

GLENN: Bunch of good guys, but you've been there for a while and you're holding the line. The news has come out now that the State Department and the president had the information that we were going to be hit 48 hours before we were hit. So what did you know and when did you know it? 48 hours before. They did nothing to secure any of the embassies. They didn't alert the embassies, nor the ambassadors, including the ambassador that was traveling back, coming into Libya. They didn't alert him. They obviously killed him, they ‑‑ rumors ‑‑ or not rumors. Reports from the Middle East now are that he was Sodomized before they killed him and then they got our basic knock list. They got our list of our safehouses and they got a list of those who are helping us.

Can you tell me, is there anybody in Washington that has a concern that the president of the United States and our State Department knew about this in advance and did nothing?

GOHMERT: Well, yes. There's a bunch of us that are, but getting that to manifest itself in actual legislation seems a little difficult. Because, gee, we don't want to raise too big a fuss, Glenn. I mean, gollee, you know about this. There are consequences if you stand up for what you believe. Heck, you might ‑‑ you might lose your sponsors if you're a talk show host; or if you're running for office, you know, people not give to you or people might not vote for you. In fact, Glenn, the number one thing that we heard during orientation eight years ago when I got elected, and it was true in both parties, other people and Democrats said that we were told, we were taught, drilled into us the best thing you can do for your country is get reelected. And it made me mad every time I heard it because sometimes, you know what? You just may have to take a stand for the good of the country, the good of the future, and it may cost you but then as you have found ‑‑ but when you do that, you know, God can work things together for good. It may hurt for a little bit but, by golly, there will be something better come down the road. And those of us that know that are not afraid to stand up ‑‑

GLENN: Let me ‑‑

GOHMERT: ‑‑ no matter what happens, but there are not enough people obviously that are doing that yet.

GLENN: If you don't have enemies, you don't have character.

GOHMERT: Well, my team staff says, "Well, you know you're over the target again because you're picking up a lot of flack."

GLENN: Well, what can ‑‑ what can the American people do? Should they call their senators or ‑‑

GOHMERT: Absolutely. Everybody that has a concern needs to call both of your senators and tell them, you call your leadership in both parties, Republican and Democrat, you call your leaders and say, "Hey, Rand Paul and Jim Inhofe are right and we should not let any more money go to these countries. Not for now. This is too important." And, you know, the message that goes out is that we're ‑‑ we may look strong on our school ground but you we are scared of the bullies and we will pay these little bitty bullies just to try to leave us alone, we'll give them our lunch money. That never worked in elementary school; it doesn't work in the big world when they're killing our people, our servants, our public servants like Stevens. I mean, it's an outrage, and people need to be upset. But you've got to give it to the president. You know, here you have four people killed in the line of duty when they didn't even warn them, and he does, though. He does bother to take a minute and a half from his busy campaign and fundraising out in Las Vegas and say, hey, it's been a tough week there. You know, we lost some people. All right, now back to the big celebration and how great I am. You know, you've got to give it to him. He did pause long enough to pay a little tribute to those folks.

GLENN: Louis ‑‑ Louie Gohmert, the represent in Texas from congress. The number, by the way, to call your senators, 202‑224‑3121. 202‑224‑3121. Tell them not another dime to Egypt and to Libya. We are on the wrong side. And the president ‑‑

GOHMERT: Thank you.

GLENN: ‑‑ and I believe the State Department know it. Thank you very much, Louie.

GOHMERT: Glenn, thank you so very much.

GLENN: You're welcome.

GOHMERT: God bless you.

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."
