Glenn's Mind Officially Blown: Rabbi Daniel Lapin Boards the Trump Train

One of Glenn's favorite people joined The Glenn Beck Program on Friday. Rabbi Daniel Lapin, whose weekly radio podcast on TheBlaze.com has 6.5 million monthly downloads, stopped by to discuss the migrant crisis, America's special place in the world and the mind-blowing fact that he's boarded the Trump train.

On Voting for Trump or Hillary

"Does there ever come a point when the evil is too much? The evil on both sides? It's like, I can't do it," Glenn asked.

"I don't think so," Rabbi Lain replied. "And I say this with considerable more than respect, a deep admiration for the peril in which you placed your entire career and your enterprise in the incredibly courageous stand you took in politics over the last few months. I truly believe that the history books in the future will speak of this election and identify you as perhaps the only business professional, the only media businessperson who has ever put his integrity on the line like that, and stuck to principle."

He continued.

"With that, look. I don't think that we're on a Carnival Cruise line. I think we're on a sinking ship. And what we're looking at are two life boats. And there are only two life boats, and each one will be able to take us all, but one of them, as I look at it, has holes in the hull. Now, the other one has a canvas cover, and you've got to make up your mind which to go on. The boat is going down. You've got to go with one of them. Please don't think that Carnival Cruise lines is showing up on the horizon to pick you up. And that's what we have here."

On Refugee Migration

"They're moving strongly on Europe, and I've heard say, you know, Europe's not going to defend itself, nor can it," Glenn said.

"It lacks both the capacity and the will, and, you know, again, it's a complete collapse of any traditional Judeo-Christian sense of morality. The very notion that bringing in migrants is somehow a manifestation of your virtue is such a pathological failure of all sense of survival, all sense of morality. I'm trying to get you to confront a very painful reality. This is a rough world. Sometimes things do not always have a happy ending. Do you take the migrants into your lifeboat and sink everybody? Or do you have to very sadly say, the guys who are already in the lifeboat have priority? It's a tough question. But you do have to confront it," Rabbi Lapin said.

On the Pathology of Socialism

"I had some hope. Now, you kind of look at things and you think, well, there is no truth. We're denying physical reality. 'Yeah, you feel like a girl? Oh, yes, ma'am.' We're denying physical reality. I think we're not even looking for the truth anymore. The truth is irrelevant. It doesn't matter. So when you say, 'Hey, are you going to take the sinking ship, are you going to sink the lifeboat?' Well, there's no critical thinking," Glenn said.

"And it is painful. I can see that, but you've got to remember, the left absolutely hates the idea that culture makes a difference in people. One of the foundational rock-solid principles and defending the pathology of socialism is that everybody's exactly the same. So if you say something, let's see, there's likely to be a more comfortable adjustment if we bring in 500,000 Swedes to live in Germany or 500,000 people from north Africa? Could there possibly be a difference? Is it possible that people from a Christian background might integrate more comfortably into Lutheran Germany than people from a Muslim background? Now, that is a completely verboten question to even ask," Rabbi Lapin said.

On the Biblical Principle of Cleanliness

"More households own a Bible in America than anywhere else in the industrialized world, except for Israel. So Israel and America naturally are the focus of the fury of the culture of the Koran, and one of the differences is that it is a Biblical value to celebrate cleanliness and hygiene. Water-borne sewage was invented in a Christian culture. There are many parts of the world that still haven't bought into the concept. But by and large, when this was weighed up, when the culture of the Koran and many other parts of the world had an opportunity to weigh up what the west had achieved, they said, 'You know what? I think we're going to make bathrooms in Bombay and Beijing and Bangkok resemble bathrooms in Boston and Birmingham. That's really what we're going to do. Because you know what? You guys got it right. To be surrounded by your own bodily waste is really not a great idea.' It's a genius concept. And this is a concept that comes from Biblical western thinking. And the opposite of that is reveling in filth and ugliness. It's not an accident that modern art in America, what has that become? You remember a horrible piece, you'll pardon me, 'art,' called Piss Christ?" Rabbi Lapin said.

"And Virgin Mary in dung," Glenn added.

"And the Brooklyn Art Museum. What is their focus and their obsession on bodily waste? It is the triumph of barbarism of western civilization," Rabbi Lapin said.

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.
