A Heartfelt Plea, Nation of Islam and Blood on Obama's Hands -- All in a Weekend

In what is frighteningly becoming routine, Monday's news was once again dominated by stories of a tragic weekend. It started with the ISIS attack in Nice, France. Then, there was an attempted coup in Turkey. Finally, and the nation awoke to learn three officers had been shot and killed in Baton Rouge, Louisiana.

Monday on The Glenn Beck Program, Glenn opened the show reading a haunting Facebook post one of the slain officers posted only two weeks before he was gunned down:

I'm tired physically and emotionally. Disappointed at some family and friends and officers for some reckless comments. But, hey, what's in your heart is in your heart. I still love you all because take hate -- hate takes too much energy, and I definitely won't be looking at you the same. Thank you to everyone who has reached out to me or my wife. It was needed and much appreciated. I swear to God I love this city, but I wonder now if this city loves me. In uniform, I get nasty, hateful looks, and out of uniform, some consider me a threat. I've experienced so much in my short life, and these last three days have tested me to the core. When people you know begin to question your integrity, you realize, they don't really know you at all. Look at my actions. They speak loud and clear. Finally, I personally want to send prayers out to everyone directly affected by all of the police shootings. These are trying times. Please, don't let hate infect your heart. This city must and will get better. I'm working in these streets so any protester, any officer, any friends, family -- whoever -- if you see me and need a hug or just want to say a quick prayer, I got you."

The media narrative didn't fit with this shooting because the officer was black, but Glenn dug deeper into who the shooter was.

"Two weeks later, he was executed," Glenn said. "This has nothing to do with Black Lives Matter, because he's a black life. He's a black man. Does his life not matter? This was Nation of Islam."

Glenn reminded listeners the Nation of Islam was responsible for the killing of Malcolm X. Unrest breeds fear and when people are afraid, there are some radical ideas come to the forefront --- and this was on display this weekend.

"I don't know if anybody noticed, but there was talk --- serious talk --- on television about martial law in America. We haven't even hit the tough times yet, gang," Glenn said. "They're talking in Cleveland today, chief of police who says, 'I'm an NRA member. I'm a gun guy. I'm a Second Amendment guy, but can't we just suspend this concealed weapons permit just for a while?'"

Suspending the second amendment is never a good idea and this example just goes to show politicians often miss the mark on these issues. President Obama barely paid lip service to the fallen police officers while glorifying the 'Black Lives Matter' movement and those who were shot by police.

This was not lost on the president of the Cleveland Police Association, who came out with the following statement:

The president of the United States validated the false narrative and the nonsense that Black Lives Matter and the media are pressing out there to the public, validated with his very divisive statements, and now we see an escalation. This has gotten too bad. We need some leadership in this country to come forward and put an end to this. I don't care if it's clergy. I don't care who it is. But somebody has to step up and put an end to it. Because it's a false narrative and very influential people that are politicizing the false narrative. Absolutely insane that we have a president of the United States and a governor of Minnesota making the statements that they've made less than one day after those police-involved shootings. And those police-involved shootings, make no mistake, are what absolutely has triggered this brash of senseless murders of law enforcement officers across this country. And it is reprehensible that the president of the United States has blood on his hands, and it will not be able to come washed off.

Obama may have blood on his hands, but one person has fingerprints all over this rash of police shootings --- Louis Farrakahn.

"In the 1960s, that's what they were doing. In the Summer of Rage, that's what [Farrakahn] was preaching," Glenn said. "'Now is the time. Rise up. Kill them.' He's doing the same thing now. 'Rise up, and kill them.' We have asked for how many years, 'Where is the press on him?' He is fomenting hatred."

It is beginning to look a lot like the summer of 1968.

"When is anybody going to recognize that assassinations are happening right now? And those assassinations are only going to get worse. They are going to get worse," Glenn said. "They are going to spread from cops, I believe, to media figures and also to public officials."

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.
