John Kasich Takes $700K From Socialist George Soros

Apparently John Kasich will take money from anyone. After finding his campaign unable to finance ads in Utah, Kasich finally got bankrolled $700,000 to keep going — courtesy of none other than George Soros. According to Kasich, he's just trying to keep Trump below 15 percent in Utah.

"Well, Trump is at 10 percent. He's not at 15 percent; he's at 10 percent," Glenn said Monday on The Glenn Beck Program. "And why, Kasich, are your ads aimed at Cruz?"

That's a very good question. Another is why would George Soros would give money to a Republican presidential candidate. As usual, Soros is using his money to rig a preferred outcome — and that preference is not likely to be stopping Donald Trump.

"If that was what you were trying to do, you would fund Cruz, you wouldn't fund Kasich," Glenn said. "You would fund the guy who actually has a chance of doing it."

Glenn also shared some behind-the-scenes intel on why Kasich is staying in the race.

"No matter what happens, he's not getting out because he thinks that he's Abraham Lincoln," Glenn said.

Below is a rush transcript of this segment, it might contain errors:

GLENN: George Soros also is giving 700 -- or, gave $700,000 to Kasich's campaign.

PAT: Yeah. And the article -- this appeared in both CNS News and Breitbart and other places over the weekend, even though it's mathematically -- not just mathematically impossible for Kasich to win, he also has to win eight states before he can be considered at the convention, and that's not going to happen either. I mean, he's one for 28 right now. He knows.

GLENN: Kasich knows he's not -- here's the behind the scenes: Talked to several people over the weekend who have spoken to John Kasich. Some of them are his friends. And I've said, "What are you doing? What is happening? You're a friend with John Kasich. Have you talked to him?"

"Oh, yes, I have. Yes, I have."

"What does he say?"

"He's not getting out. He thinks he's Abraham Lincoln."

PAT: Good golly.

GLENN: Those are his friends.

PAT: I know Abraham Lincoln. You're no Abraham Lincoln.

GLENN: Abraham Lincoln, so he went to the convention, and it was a contested convention, and he won in like the ninth vote. And that's how we have Abraham Lincoln: He won in the ninth vote. John Kasich thinks -- he's not getting out. No matter what happens, he's not getting out because he thinks that he's Abraham Lincoln.

PAT: So just -- it was a simple search of Kasich's campaign donation list, and they found that the Soros fund management is the sixth highest individual donor with $202,700.

GLENN: What does that tell you?

PAT: Seventh largest donor is the Ducane HEP Family Office, with 150. The super PAC side, Kasich's New Day for America received 150,000 from Stanley HEP Druckenmiller, who operates the Ducane family office. All of these, you know, employed by the Soros Fund Management Team.

So he's -- all together, if you add it up, it's $700,000 from Soros people. Soros and his surrogates giving to the Kasich campaign. What is that about?

GLENN: Soros -- so you know, Kasich couldn't run ads in Utah. Suddenly, he finds enough money to run ads in Utah. And he says, "Hey, I'm just trying to keep Trump under 15 percent." Well, Trump is at 10 percent. He's not at 15 percent; he's at 10 percent. And why, Kasich, are your ads aimed at Cruz?

PAT: Yeah, you would think they would be aimed at Trump.

GLENN: He is going after Cruz, and he's being a surrogate for Donald Trump. Now, I don't know how the Soros thing works and what Soros -- what game Soros is playing, other than trying to keep Cruz out.

PAT: Yeah. And they're saying he's trying to keep Trump out. I doubt that.

GLENN: Who, Soros is? I don't think --

PAT: I think it's likely he's trying to keep Cruz out.

GLENN: If that was what you were trying to do, you would fund Cruz, you wouldn't fund Kasich. You would fund the guy who actually has a chance of doing it.

PAT: Yeah.

GLENN: I don't know, but I know this: Soros like the imams over in Iran, like the -- the people over in Europe that are -- what is it, The Coming Insurrection people, like Occupy Wall Street, like Black Lives Matter, they all want one thing, and that is chaos.

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.
