Glenn: God is the answer

Between the government shutdown, the debt ceiling debate, the fight to defund Obamacare, and the current state of Washington, it is difficult to find much hope. On radio this morning, Glenn explained that it is time for the left and right to come together on the things that can unite us against the progressive element on both sides of the aisle, and we must look to God for the guidance and answers.

“We told you their intent. Fundamentally transform the United States of America. Redistribute the wealth. I told you that they see us as the wealthiest 1% of the world. So even the poorest among us are going to get hammered,” Glenn said. “The ship has already sailed, and they're counting on the power and the philosophies and the traps of men. There is only one way to beat it and that is to be absolutely clean; to do the right thing; to do the hard thing; to stick together; to be with like‑minded people that you think at least will stand when it comes time to stand; to be people of peace.”

You know, you can take and look at the correlation of when the Western world started to slide off the cliff. The Western world started to slide off the cliff when we started to lose our faith. Look what happened in the late 1700s and early 1800s. Look at that 150 or 200‑year period. For the first time in and around 1800, the world saw the individual for the very first time. We ended slavery, and the West declared slavery was wrong. Some lasted longer than others. We lasted longer here. Some just gave it up, some had wars over it, but we did it because we saw the power of the individual. That was a new idea. We went from candles and fire to heat and electricity. We went from drilling holes in people's heads to penicillin. We changed the world.

Why? What happened? I contend it is God. People found a real understanding of all men are created equal. You don't have to believe in God, but that is an important thing. All men are created equal.

Now, the reason why the French Revolution lost is because they went on to say all men are equal. No, they're not. They don't have equal outcome. They're created equal, so everybody gets their fair shot. Once you say all men are equal, well, then you've got a problem because once you start to look at wealth and everything else and equal outcome, then somebody has to change the rules to make it work right for somebody else. No. No, what we had was everybody is an individual and everybody has to stand on their own two feet. But then you couple that with faith, which taught charity. It is the Judeo‑Christian value of charity. And the Judeo‑Christian value of the power of the individual, that God loves each of us and created each of us as individuals. And he loves each of us. Good or bad, black or white, we're all his children. All of us. And it's for him to settle those scores. It's for us to try to do the right thing.

When you couple those two things in, all of a sudden invention kicks in. All of a sudden goodness carries the day. We've lost that. And anybody who tells you differently, I mean, look, I'm not on a mission. I'm not a preacher. I'm the worst guy to come and talk to you about these things. And these are the things that I've never wanted to do. I get up every day and I have to change this. But I get up every day and I don't want to do it. I don't want to do it. Somebody wrote to me and said, man, your ambition and the things that you're doing, I just don't want to do them. Well, neither do I.

So what drives me? I feel compelled to because I've been given much. I've been given freedom. I've been given an opportunity to wipe the mistakes of my past away. I've been given the opportunity to be who I want to be. And it's irresponsible. No, it's grotesque for me not to put every dime of everything I have, every breath that I have into that.

As I was sitting last night again at the hospital with my son, last week I was in the hospital with my daughter and last night I had to take Raphe to the hospital. He fell and he cut his head open. And I was sitting there and quite honestly, I was trying to make him think of anything, anything but getting stitches in the back of his head. And so quite honestly, not to be crude, after we prayed, I started telling him fart jokes because he's 9. And fart jokes work at 9. And so we were readying the torpedoes and launching them away because that's what kept him smiling and laughing. I got home and I thought, strangely, that's one of the best memories I have right now. I'd rather do that than anything else, just be with my family and just laugh and be there.

We're all in this together. The message is simple: Decency, honor, integrity, goodness, kindness, charity. God is the answer. Anything else will take you off course. And we will slip into the history books as a once‑great nation and a once‑great people. I'm not going to be a part of that. We can win because, if we are on God's side, who could possibly defeat him?

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.
