Glenn: "I can't believe what I'm looking at"

All this weekend at the Mercury Studios in Dallas, Texas the Miracles and Massacres Museum and the lines are already out the door. Glenn found himself routinely saying ‘I can’t believe I’m looking at that’ as he took the tour, passing by amazing item after amazing item. Then there’s the ridiculous 4D experience - Glenn explained on radio today.

"The staff has been working last night at 2:00 a.m. We finished the last piece of the museum. And I can't even say that. I finished my last part of the museum and then everybody else was working all the way through the night, then went upstairs to the American Dream Labs to where the 4-D experience was finished," Glenn said.

"We had to reshoot a bunch of stuff in the middle of the night last night because I didn't like it. I'm just -- I'm a little choked up because I just walked out of the studio or station 33 where we have put this 4-D experience together. It is phenomenal. It is absolutely phenomenal."

Glenn was amazed at the way his team at the American Dream Labs had taken his idea for the 4D D-Day Experience and turned it into a reality.

"It's really amazing. And now what they've done is they've put all these screens that you can actually see through. You don't even know there's a screen there. And you can see through them. So there's multiple layers of screens and projection of war and it's phenomenal. And it tells the story of D-Day and it's remarkable."

Last night, Glenn changed a lot of the museum to make it more accessible to children who were coming to the studios and to build it that way from the start the next time the museum is open. The move was inspired by Walt Disney, who designed his parks with kids in mind.

"The one thing I thought about this morning at 3:00 in the morning is I should have been on my knees not in prayer but on my knees to see it from a child's perspective," Glenn explained. "[Walt Disney] would get down on his knees the whole time and he would look at things [from a child's viewpoint]. That's how he got the perspective of the buildings right. That's all forced perspective. The buildings look bigger than they are and they did it through stage techniques."

"But when [Walt Disney] was designing his park, he was down on his knees the whole time. What does this look like as an 8-year-old child? And that's the way we need to design this museum. That's the way this whole thing needs to be done. And right now, we have spent two weeks just putting things in just so you can see them, but it all needs to be done in a way. We've got to be able to tell history. The only way we're going to save our country is to be able to sell the story, tell the story of who we are and why we're here."

He also explained that he plans to find new ways to bring these experiences to people where they live in a way that doesn't cost them anything.

"We just have to give these things because you need to see it. You just need to see it. And we need to bring it to you," Glenn explained. "You need to be recharged. You need to have somebody to fill your tank without wanting something in return. And it is my greatest desire to be able to given things to you that I know we can do, that will hold you up without wanting or asking for anything in return. To serve one another."

In the end, Glenn said he wants to do these things because of the special relationship that exists between himself and the audience.

"You don't know how much you bolster me. We have this great strange friendship. You don't know who I am. I don't know who you are. But you -- you think you know who I am but you listen and you're probably pretty close," Glenn said. " I feel you. It's the weirdest thing. And I think it's the reason why we're successful, is because I can feel you. It's weird. And when I get a chance to meet you, it means the world to me. It just means the world to me."

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.
