Police Officers are Being Targeted, Executed and Assassinated

Our prayers are with police officers.

Again, yesterday, we lost another police officer. The one in Kansas City. Today, two cops were targeted in New York. These are assassinations. How many people have to die? How many people have to die?

You know, I said years ago, "1968 is coming, and if you want to fully repeat history, all that is lacking is the assassinations." And here they are. These officers are being targeted, executed, assassinated. Can we just think here for a minute about the families? And not the ones who have died, but the families who today, at the breakfast table, had to say goodbye to their husband or their mother or their child.

Imagine what those children are hearing on the playgrounds. You know they're hearing it on the playgrounds. You know they're seeing it on the news. You know they're hearing the whispered tension between mom and dad. And you know mom and dad have said to them, "Don't worry."

Imagine what all of the children of all of our police officers are going through every night. Imagine the nightmares that they are having, that their dad is not coming home tonight. And this is only gonna get worse.

Imagine the tension in the homes. Imagine the tension -- you know cops are just -- most of them are just like military. They're not going to leave their brethren out there. They're watching their backs. They want to be their for their brothers. And imagine the wives who are saying, "You got to quit, honey. You got to quit."

"I can't quit, honey. If I quit, who is going to stand the line?"

And the fathers who have to look at their children, hearing their wife beg them, "Please, retire, get out, do something else." Looking at their children who are trying to hide their fear that they're not going to see dad and then going out on the streets and people treating them like garbage. Turning on television and seeing the president of the United States say what he said. Seeing Hillary Clinton at the DNC hold up a guy who the left has held up as a hero, when all of the cops have been cleared of any wrongdoing. And they're bringing mom in to speak at the DNC?

What do you feel like if you're a cop today? What do you feel like if you're a spouse of a cop?

I know my children --- and I don't face any of this --- I know my children: "Dad, stop. Stop doing it. Stop." I don't face this. These guys are being assassinated. They really, honestly don't know . . . they're walking down the street, they get out of their car, they go to buy a cup of coffee, they go to stop somebody, they're called for assistance. We don't have anybody really, truly leading the charge on this.

It's despicable what our president is doing. And, quite honestly, it's despicable what the media is doing. Are there problems in the black communities? Are there problems in the white communities? Yes. Are there problems in government and media? Yes. Are there problems in the police department? Yes. But is nobody in the media willing to stand up and say, "We can't have any kind of conversation, no conversation if you can't say, enough with the violence?

Can you imagine if the Tea Party Tea Party would have said any of the stuff that Black Lives Matter has said. The leaders of it. Can you imagine if we would have said just one line that has been said by the Black Panthers, one line that was said by Louis Farrakhan? Can you imagine? And then if the Koch brothers would have funded that movement, where the leaders were saying that thing, like George Soros has funded Black Lives Matter. Can you imagine one police officer being killed? One. Like white on rice.

Now, this has nothing to do with the double standard of politics; this has everything to do with the double standard of humanity. Where is your humanity? You people in the media, you politicians, shame on you. These are the guys that protect your ass every day. These are the guys that will get shot before you get shot. And you don't have the balls to stand up and say, "This is obscene?"

Shame on you.

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.
