Glenn: It was a hard day...

Glenn has made a habit recently of doing late night Facebook posts. Sometimes he uses it to post pictures and update fans on what he is working on behind-the-scenes, and sometimes he uses it to vent about what is on his mind. Last night he wanted to vent. Really, really badly. But he stopped and decided to put himself in the shoes of his fans, and realized as frustrated as he gets, he has a lot more support than some people out there. He asked readers about how they get through the tough days - and there were some truly amazing responses.

"Last night about 11:00, and we had finally put the kids down to bed. Taken care of everything we needed to take care of. Straightened up the house, cleaned the dishes, finally just sat down. Tania was on the couch. I was on the couch and both of us kind of falling asleep back in forth in conversation. And I said, Tania, I just want to talk to you about some things that are just on my mind. So we had a good conversation. We went to bed. I decided to post something on Facebook. And this morning I got up and it was like 85,000 likes and I don't even know how many thousands of messages. But this is one I'm going to read all the messages, because they're unbelievable," Glenn said

"Now, if you read this, I had a change of heart at that period. Because I kind of came into it with a pity party. But I was thinking about you as I wrote this."

He wrote:

Hard day today.

Feeling kind of lost.

Questioning everything. Wondering how much is real and worth it beside family. Wondering how "normal" people do it. Work all day, come home while the other parent goes back out to their second job, raise the kids, do the shopping, pay the bills, take the kids to ballet or Boy Scouts, serve in the church, be a good husband and a good dad, study for work the next day, keep up with your loved ones - family, and dear friends and still reading scriptures and praying.

I have help and assistants and my amazing wife. Who do you have? I am sure, no one. Maybe you are a single parent.

Dear Lord. How blind and foolish I have been. Who am I to complain, judge, or feel tired? I am so sorry.

I do however want to know how do you do it? I am overwhelmed. It is funny, I can do a million projects at work, but I quickly get lost when it is the most important project of all - my family.

Maybe because I know the scars it left on us as kids. Or maybe because I have older kids and so I can see the errors I made and know that I have much left to learn.

Pray for me and I will double up on my prayers for you tonight. God is great. God is love.

From Dallas. Goodnight America.

Here are some of the responses:

Pamela N Chris Jennings: Prayers, my friend. I was at the end of my road once. It was right before Christmas. Whole world in the crapper. I started walking (I live in a rural area). I walked for miles. Came to the county courthouse area. Walked into the library for no particular reason. Picked up the first book off the 'new arrivals' shelf right by the door. Was really thinking about ending it all. Didn't even care about the book, just something to take my mind off for a few minutes. I read page one & didn't stop till the end. It changed my whole perspective. It probably saved my life. A sweet tale. It was called 'The Christmas Sweater'. Thanks, Glenn. I'll never be able to repay you, but thank you.

Tania Andrews: I am a single mother of 4 (8yo, 7yo, 4yo twins), I have 2.5 jobs and we live in a one bedroom condo. I drop the four of them off at two different schools (at least 10 miles apart) before driving to my job (30 mi from the last drop off). I used to secretly pray that God would send me a champion, a rescuer, a knight in shining armor to pluck me from my situation or at least come along beside me and help relieve some of the pressure. I've been learning that Jesus has been my rescuer, champion and knight all along. He loved me going into a dysfunctional marriage, He loved me when it turned violent and I left, He loves me and my children (and even their dad) still. I wake up with God daily, even the tough days and I cling to His promises and presence CONSTANTLY.

Julie Emler Haga: At 24 I found myself suddenly abandoned with 3 small children and another on the way. I had days when I was so overwhelmed I was sure I couldn't do it for one more day, but the sun still rose, the world continued on, and I did it once again. When I was at my lowest, my father said something I will never forget:"you can have today for your pity party, but I won't attend. The Lord never throws anything at us we can't catch and throw back." So I caught, and threw it back, eventually getting my GED ( I had quit school in the 9th grade) and then on to nursing school, graduating with a 3.98 gpa, thanks to my parents and the Lord's help. I guess my point is this: when it gets hard, there's no shame in getting overwhelmed, just remember that the sun will still come up tomorrow, giving you another chance to come as close as you can to getting it right, and if you need to drop to your knees and pray for guidance, it's ok, because we all need a little help sometimes.

Cory 'n Amy Brand: I am a minister just down the road from you. I was feeling much the same emotions you described. Then I read this scripture, it was encouraging for me hope it is for you.

Galatians 6:9-10 NIV

[9] Let us not become weary in doing good, for at the proper time we will reap a harvest if we do not give up. [10] Therefore, as we have opportunity, let us do good to all people, especially to those who belong to the family of believers.

Kirsten Raye: Today the youngest of my four children went to the nurse at school, not feeling well. I was halfway to work at 0740 when I got the call to pick her up. When I asked, "Kylie....if you weren't feeling well, why did you even bother going to school today?", she responded, "I knew you had a meeting and I didn't want you to miss it, Momma". These are the invisible scars of the single parent; they ache in our heart. But I think there is something to be said of children who understand how torn we feel, and try to help in their own HUGE way. There's a balance we all find; sometimes we are in survival mode - there's no choice. But once we've overcome that storm, we get a reprieve filled with much cherished smooth sailing.

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.

It's high time to leave the partisan politics behind and focus on the facts about face masks and whether or not they really work against COVID-19.

On the radio program Tuesday, Glenn Beck spoke with Drs. Scott Jensen and George Rutherford about the scientific evidence that proves or disproves the effectiveness of mask wearing to stop the spread of the coronavirus. Then, Dr. Karyln Borysenko joined to break down where the massive political divide over masks came from in the first place.

"I think if we were to talk about this a couple months ago, I might have said, 'Well, there's the science of masks, and there's the emotions of masks.' But, unfortunately, there's something in between," Jensen said. "I would have thought that the science of masks would have to do with the physics of masks, so I did a video a couple months ago where I talked about the pore side of a cotton mask or a surgical mask."

He explained that properly worn masks can help reduce the spread of virus particles, but cautioned against a false-sense of security when wearing a mask because they are far from providing complete protection.

"If you have a triple-ply mask, the pore size will end up being effectively five microns. And five microns, to a COVID-19 virus particle, is 50 times larger. That's approximately the same differential between the two-inch separation between the wires of a chain-link fence, and a gnat," Jensen explained.

"But now what we're seeing is if we have some collision of COVID-19 viral particles with the latticework of any mask ... if you're breathing out or breathing in and the viral particles collide with the actual latticework of a mask, I think intuitively, yes, we can reduce the amount of virus particles that are going back and forth."

Dr. Rutherford said masks are essential tools for fighting COVID-19, as long as you wear them correctly. He laid out the three main reasons he believes we should all be wearing masks.

"So, we're trying to do three things," he said. "First of all, we're trying to protect the people around you, in case you are one of the 60% of people who have asymptomatic infection and don't know it. The second thing we're trying to do is to protect you. The third thing we're trying to do is, if you get infected, you'll get infected at a lower dose, and then you're less likely to develop symptoms. That's the threefer."
