Could this be the guy to unseat Mitch McConnell?

It’s no secret that Senate Minority Mitch McConnell (R-KY) is not a Tea Party or conservative darling, which is why it should come as no surprise that Sen. McConnell will face opposition in his upcoming reelection fight. Matt Bevin, a military veteran and entrepreneur, hopes to be the guy to unseat him, and he joined Glenn on radio this morning to talk about his experience campaigning against the machine of the establishment GOP.

“Matt Bevin is the guy running against Mitch McConnell in Kentucky,” Glenn said. “We've had several conversations off air. While he has not received any endorsements yet, he has been spoken to by many people – FreedomWorks, the Senate Conservative Fund. They speak highly of him. In fact, I was told by a couple of people that he's the best Constitutional candidate they have seen in the nation. Wow.”

Glenn asked Matt to tell the audience a little bit about himself. “I'm a guy who grew up, second of six children, and I grew up in the country in a 3 bedroom house, ate everything we grew on our own land, had a variety of eggs, meat, milk and such. A very Spartan lifestyle, but a good one. It was a home grounded very much on Judeo Christian ethics and principles. And my Christian faith is really the cornerstone of who I am as a person,” Matt said. “So, my entire life as a business person, husband, father, how I will be as a politician is grounded in my Christian faith. So that's me from a broad stroke. I put myself through college. My dad worked in a small wood mill and my parents weren't in a position to help with that, which was fine. I put myself through the college, joined the military. I was an Army officer on active duty for a number of years. And since then, left the military a little over 20 years ago, have worked exclusively in the private sector. Small business owner, a guy who employs other people, pays taxes and pays attention. That's why I am in this race because I do not see the future, the American Dream isn’t being offered to future generations in the way that it was to mine and those who preceded me."

Considering the progressive nature of Sen. McConnell, it might be easy to look at Matt and say that anyone would be better, but Glenn asked him to explain where he would stand on the issues facing Congress today.

“There's two critical things. Obamacare as it relates to this CR and the debt limit. These two things are stepping into each other as we head into October. As it relates to Obamacare, I've been calling for, from the very get-go since I announced my candidacy in July exactly what's being done. And I’ve had conversation with the aforementioned senators and exactly about what the House is doing by sending this bill minus the funding for Obamacare to the Senate is exactly what I’ve been calling for,” Matt explained. “I don't think there's a tremendous part of spine on the part of Boehner but I applaud the fact that he's sending the bill and refusing to blink. I hope they continue and think that's the right thing to do. The American people do not want this. They cannot afford this. It's clear that it is so flawed it's not able to be implemented. If it's not able to be implemented as the law of the land for every one, then it should not be implemented period. And all this defunding will do, as you know, is simply kick this can down the road, which is frankly, not the right solution. But it is, at this moment in time, the best that can be done, which is not to fund the implementation of Obamacare.”

Matt went on to explain his positions on the NSA, the budget, the Middle East, and more. While Glenn was not jumping out of his seat, he found himself impressed with the candidate.

“Let's continue to do our homework on him,” Glenn said. “But I certainly like him more than Mitch McConnell. If this guy is who he says he is, imagine getting him and Louie Gohmert in – just those two, getting rid of Cornyn and McConnell.”

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.
