World War 3: Who are the players and how is it happening?

World War 3 could be right around the corner, and Glenn laid out how he thinks it's going to happen and why based on the news in the Middle East and around the globe on Tuesday's TV show.

Opening the show, Glenn pointed out that throughout history countries come and go and empires rise and fall - no nations have truly been made to last, with one exception: America. When the Founders conceived of America, they built it with the Constitution and based it on principles of freedom and liberty so it could adapt to any problems or issues. Since it was created with freedom at its core, it could always be reset back to freedom if America ever went down the wrong path. That's why George Washington rejected the title of "King" and three branches were established with checks and balances.

Today, however, the ideas of freedom and the self-evident truth that all men are created equal has come under attack while hatred and evil rise. Glenn pointed to the rising destabilization in the Middle East with first the Arab Spring and now Syria plunging into chaos as the early signs, and predicted that Europe would soon be in trouble as well.

Glenn said that as destabilization occurs, three groups will be left vying for power: The Caliphate (Radical Islamists), The Controllers (Also known as the Communists, Socialists, Progressives), and the Survivors (the 90% who don't fall in the other categories).

In a World War 3 scenario, Glenn explained that the Caliphate is really the end goal of the Muslim Brotherhood leaders, whom fall into Sunni Muslim ideology. They are often in conflict with Shi'a Islamic faith, and these are the ones who believe in the Twelfth Imam, an Islamic messiah who will return only during a period of great chaos and is often portrayed beheading non-believers. Radicals within both Sunni and Shi'a, however, believe in a a single,unified,  Islamic state - The Caliphate.

The other group vying for power in this scenario are The Controllers, which are the groups looking to expand their own power. These Controllers have come in different forms over the years: Socialists, Communists, and Progressives - even the drug lords and gangs of today.

The last group is the Survivors. These are the 90% who just want to feed their family, but they'll also do almost anything to maintain normalcy. Glenn warned that when it's time to be tested, many of these people will give up their own control to the people who will offer stabilization, even if it means a loss of freedom.

Glenn said that right now, the world is being destabilized and remolded. He pointed to Benghazi, where he believes the United States was running guns to support the rebels against Syrian president Assad. President Obama also signed a secret order giving support to Syrian rebels, and John McCain visited them and gave them credibility as well. Meanwhile, the Shi'a are flooding Syria to support Assad and fight the rebels America has supported.

So that's the United States aligned with the Syrian rebels, who are also supported by the Muslim Brotherhood, on one side.

On the other? Russia and the Shi'a Muslims. Russia has been a staunch ally of the Syrian leadership and Assad, providing them weaponry and political support.

Glenn believes that there is already a cold war underway, and pointed to Secretary of State John Kerry's awkward visit to Russia where he waited three hours at the Kremlin before Putin showed up. Glenn believes you don't do that to a high ranking official unless you are sending a message.

Glenn warned that the 90% in the survival group can't just survive, they have to stand for something. He said it will be up to Americans to stand for freedom in the coming global conflict, otherwise it will be lost in exchange for stability as the Caliphate and the Controllers seek to grab power.

How will the world be reshaped? Glenn looked at the map:

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.

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.
