“The only thing that could be below you is to not have a job”: Glenn offers 7 steps to get people back to work

During an interview with Ellen DeGeneres last week, Ashton Kutcher made a bold declaration about the entitlement culture in America saying, "The only thing that can be below you is to not have a job.” On radio this morning, Glenn further elaborated on that very point, using the words of Kutcher, the lessons of Mike Rowe, and his own experience differentiate between finding work and creating it.

“Ashton Kutcher said, ‘I believe the only thing that could be below you is to not have a job.’ Amen,” Glenn said. “Do you have anybody that you know that is a recent college graduate, or are you a college graduate? And you're having a really hard time finding a job? Do you know anybody who's telling you there are just no jobs out there? I would tell you that Mike Rowe would disagree with you. There are millions of jobs that are available right now, but are they below you?”

Glenn offered seven steps for finding a job right now:

1. You find a leafless yard

2. Go find a rake

3. Take pictures before and after you've raked

4. Post the pictures

5. Put them in a flier and take them around your neighborhood

6. Tell yourself every day: ‘I'm going to do the very best.’

7. Ask yourself at the end of the day: ‘Can I do better tomorrow?’

“Got a bunch of leaves in your yard? Take pictures of all of the leaves in your yard, or maybe if you don't have a yard, go find someplace else. Go find a park if you have to. Find somebody in your neighborhood that has a whole bunch of leaves and take a picture of all the leaves. Then go find a rake and rake all the leaves. I mean every single leaf. Do the best job of raking you've ever seen anybody do – I mean every single leaf – and bag it. Make it into an art. Find your joy in raking those leaves,” Glenn explained. “Find the worst lawn you could possibly find and take all the pictures of it before, and then do the best job you possibly can and show all of the pictures afterwards. Then post those photos on Facebook and tweet them with the following caption: ‘I will do the best job of raking leaves you've ever seen. Reply and I'll quote you a rate.’ If you don't want to do that on Facebook or Twitter, just take the pictures of what you do and what you've done and go door to door and say, ‘I'm going to give you a great rate because I've got to work. I can't sit around all day. It's driving me out of my mind.’”

“Every day when you leave your home to rake leaves say this to yourself: ‘I'm going to do the very best job I possibly can.’ Step 7, return home after you're finished and ask yourself, ‘Did I do my very best?’ That's it. Could be raking leaves, could be anything, but leaves is where I would suggest you start today,” he continued. “Every journey begins with a first step. And I'm telling you: Hard workers are hard to find. People who are dedicated, people who will do any job, it is hard to find them. Everybody has some sort of an elitist attitude. Everybody has this attitude of: That job is beneath me. No job is beneath you. No job is beneath you.”

As Glenn explained this morning, the current economy requires one to create work, not simply find it.

“It's tough to find a job right now. But it is not tough to create a job right now,” Glenn said definitively. “Find a problem and fix it. The problems are merely opportunities. And may I suggest that if you are in a job right now that you hate, why are you doing it? I'm really convinced that most of us, the reason why we have so many problems in our world is because we are not doing the thing that we're supposed to be doing.”

Glenn explained he is still not totally sure he is doing what he is supposed to be doing. But he recognizes that he is evolving and changing. “I really feel like I'm not the guy that I was 13 years ago. I'm not the guy that I was six years ago. I don't even know if I'm the guy that I was a year ago. I'm changing… I'm still paying for the mistakes that I made… I have a different consciousness. I understand things differently now,” he explained. “How do I let go of that past because it's the world that I've now created for myself? Well, I've done it before; why can't I do it again? Well, because I'm not quite ready yet. I'm not really sure where I'm headed yet. I don't know. But I know that it will be better than it is today because I know I'm willing to put in the hard work.”

Recognizing that you are evolving and changing, and understanding that what you find fulfilling today, may or may not be what you find fulfilling a year from now is part of life. And Glenn contends this growing experience all starts with work.

“There's nothing better than work. There is nothing more fulfilling than work… If your child says or you're saying the economy stinks, this isn't a good time to start a business, what is the economy? Can you explain it to me,” Glenn asked. “Maybe I'll invite the economy out to lunch and tell him to stop preventing people from doing work. There is only one economy that matters: Your economy. And your economy starts with two hands and the talent that you were born with. Everyone was born with exactly every tool you need.”

“Listen to me carefully. People say this to me all the time: Glenn, but if I could just get you to talk about… No! You were born with everything you need,” he concluded. “All in due time. All in God's way. But know this: Everything that you need, you have right now. What is it you were sent here to do? Pick up a rake. Pick up a rake and start finding it.”

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.
