Glenn Beck: $132,000 in 3 days



Ramos/Compean fundraiser


From Pat Gray's Blog...

 

The families of these border agent/political prisoners are struggling. Homes are in jeopardy, lives torn apart. So, we’re raising money for Monica Ramos and Patty Compean.

We’re asking that instead of one check, split your donation between the two: Make them out separately to Monica Ramos…AND…Patty Compean…and mail to:

Edd Henndee


Taste of Texas


10505 Katy Freeway


Houston, Texas 77024

GLENN: So yesterday Ed went down, a friend of ours, partner of yours, more of a friend of mine and partner of yours. You know what I'm saying?

GRAY: I know what you're saying.

GLENN: But he went down and he met with Nacio Ramos in prison.

GRAY: Yeah. This is, I think, the third time that he's met with him in prison, and just had a great talk with him because we've been doing the fundraiser obviously and so have you, and so he luckily we had this scheduled anyway and so he was able to tell him about the first couple of days and

GLENN: How long does it take Ed to get that schedule? It took us six months.

GRAY: You know, he goes through a local congressman that he's very close to.

GLENN: Yeah, yeah. Our congressman, not a lot of help.

GRAY: Not so much.

GLENN: Not so much, no.

GRAY: Yeah, it surprises me. In Connecticut? Huh.

GLENN: But we went and it was impossible to get in to see him. In fact, the first interview with both Compean and Ramos, the first in prison interview is in Fusion magazine. I couldn't bring a microphone or a camera in. I mean, you know, for their protection.

GRAY: For their protection.

GLENN: That's what it was.

GRAY: They thought you were going to beat him to death?

GLENN: No, it was for their protection, yeah.

GRAY: Uh huh, yeah, yeah.

GLENN: So I went in and interviewed and if you sign up for Fusion magazine, you'll get the first interview, first in prison interview with both Compean and Ramos in Fusion magazine. 888 Glenn Beck or GlennBeck.com. So he spoke with him yesterday and what happened?

GRAY: Here just an amazing story from Nacio because Nacio was talking about how, you know, just as the new verdict from the Fifth Circuit Court of Appeals started to sink in and I think he said in the last week or so and he said he started to realize, you know, he's going to he's going to be in prison now for a while.

GLENN: I think he's going to be in prison, unless something dramatic happens. I think these guys are going to be in prison for the term.

GRAY: I hope not.

GLENN: I hope not, either. It's going to have to something dramatic's going to have to happen.

GRAY: It is, it is. And, you know, obviously they are going to go unbunk and plead the case to the entire fifth circuit court which is 22 judges and if that doesn't work out, they will still take it to the supreme courts but, you know, that's a process of at least a year, at least a year. So, you know, that was all sinking in.

GLENN: Maybe if it gets to Justice Kennedy and the Supreme Court because Justice Kennedy believes there's an evolving sense of morality. So if it looks like the American people are starting to say, oh, wait a minute, we think this might be wrong, maybe justice Kennedy would have that evolving sense of justice and say, well, we're headed towards a place where it looks like this isn't wrong.


GRAY: Yeah, that gives is all just a glimmer of hope.

GLENN: It does, doesn't it? It wounds my heart.

GRAY: So as he's starting to realize how long he's going to be there and that his family's going to be without him and he can't support them for an even longer period of time, he just broke down. And at that point just ask Dodd, you're going to have to take care of my family because I just can't do it. Here, there's absolutely nothing I can do; please just see to my family. The next day he's listening to your show as he does every day and you've got his wife on and Patty Compean and me and we're talking about the fundraiser, and he had no idea it was coming. And he stopped right there dead in his tracks in the cell and just realized at that point and spoke it aloud: God, you've been here with me, you're here with me now and you've been here with me all along. And I get it now. I get it now. And so I realized at that point that, yeah, God is helping take care of his family.

GLENN: Isn't that amazing?

GRAY: Incredible, fantastic. You know, to get a small part in being a conduit and watching people just take off with this thing. In a time when we're told, you know, how bad the economy is. And yeah, it is. Everybody's struggling now to meet their bills and to just buy a tank of gas and you've got the mortgage crunch and you've got the uncertainty of the future and people stepping up like that? We've got $23,000 for these families in one day. This was before your listeners' donations started to get here. That's $46,000 on the first day. By day two it was $36,000 a piece for a total of $72,000. And then the listeners from all over the country from hearing your show

GLENN: This one time, we asked one time.

GRAY: One time. One time, and it kicked up the donations. The first day we got donations from around the country, went up to $66,000 per family. So in three days over $132,000 for the Ramos and Compean family.

GLENN: And that is again I just want to say some of that money is locally from Pat. That is this audience. One day, one mention. One mention. And it's nontax deductible. I mean, that is it's absolutely incredible.

GRAY: Nothing in it for anybody.

GLENN: Anybody. Nothing in it for anybody.

GRAY: Except the eternal principle we talked about when we were on my show today, that when you look outside yourself, you know, blessings will come to you as well. Your life is going to be happier, it's going to be better. And the amazing thing is, you know, our listeners get that. They understand that.

GLENN: You know, I said to you on your show, because you brought me on this morning and you told me this news and it came as just a, just it was a blessing to me to hear. And I shared a story that a very good friend of mine who has been just, he has had a horrible, horrible, tough life. We used to have to, when I was 15, 16, 17 years old, we would go down to the bar and we would have to go down and get his stepfather and pull him out of the bar drunk. And we you know, and he would just be, you know, typical drunk and we, as kids, would pull them out and take him home and put him into bed. And his father he saw kill himself and he just, had just his life has just been one tragedy right after another. And he's been an atheist or on good days an agnostic. And he came out to visit me and we spent a week together and we were sitting here in a hotel having dinner right after the new year and he said, I'm just miserable, Glenn and I'm having a hard time with money and I can't, I can't do it anymore. And I said, you know, I know you don't believe in God but just try two principles. The first one is you're worried about money? Give it away. Give it away. Just know that by giving it away, more will come back to you. Worry about somebody else and give that money away, just 10%. You're going to struggle with that 10%. Just give it away and more will come back.

Then the other one is serve other people. Stop worrying about yourself. Just serve other people and everything will be okay. He called me last week. He said, Glenn, I can't believe it. Not only am I happy, not only am I by serving other people am I finding such peace and comfort, he said, but I've been giving money away. He said, an aunt of mine who just died I didn't even know I had left me a huge sum of money and on the same day, the day that the day before I was saying, I don't have any money, what am I going to do because I've, you know, been living these principles, he said, and I also got another check that I wasn't even expecting. And they were large sums of money. He said, I couldn't believe it. And he said, I've got to go start going to church. What are the rest of those principles? I called him yesterday. He went to church for the very first time in I think his life. He went to church on Sunday. Called him yesterday. Here's a lifelong friend who's been miserable his whole life and he said to me I said, how was it? How are things? He said, Glenn, I went to church on Sunday. He said, you know me. I'm not a God guy. He said, but I just just going to church that Sunday, just listening to some of that stuff and just trying to apply some of these principles, he said, these are the two happiest days of my life. Boy, if we just get outside of ourself, miracles happen.

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.
