GLENN: You're telling me that the country that embraced this really, truly understood drill for more oil in ANWR? No.

STU: This was out as we voted for it and then the stupid President Clinton vetoed it.

GLENN: No, this is -- oh.

STU: Maybe he vetoed it because of this.

GLENN: This is where -- this is where, when we were in our cars and we turned on the radio, we should have known Jesus is coming soon, within -- when did this come out?

DAN: That would be 1996.

STU: I mean, you can't judge -- clearly we were gone by this time.

GLENN: Jesus in 16 years. From right -- that's when it would have been on the radio. Yep, 16-year warning.

STU: She is laughing, Glenn.

GLENN: I can't take it.

STU: You've got to think she's having a good time.

GLENN: Can't take it.

STU: She's having a good time, she's getting into it. Kind of nice.

GLENN: You know this song, was it from the Nineties or the 2000s? What was it? I hate the -- you know back in the old days when our great, great-grandparents were around? They called is the oughts. We don't have that.

STU: That's amazing. We went through the --

GLENN: We're almost through the decade and we don't know how to say it, the 2000s, back in the -- we don't have anything. Our grandparents -- that's another sign. That's another sign. Our grandparents figured it out! In ought one, in ought two. Can you imagine hearing somebody say that? Why? Why is that so bad? It makes sense. Instead we're like in the 2000s. That's 100-year span. That's a 1,000-year span!

STU: Yeah, we definitely failed. We failed as a society and I think Macarena proves that. I'm just saying the point of when we turned over is, I don't think you're right to say it's in the Eighties at all. I think it was long gone before that. I mean, you -- it's -- this is what I want. I want a full and open, honest debate about when the turnover was. I want 17,000 town hall meetings scheduled every 90 minutes until we figure this out because this is important.

GLENN: If I said no, would I be dodging that debate?

STU: Yes, of course you'd be dodging that debate.

GLENN: I'd be dodging that debate. I will give you that it's not Macarena, but I believe the end of all society started with Rapper's Delight.

STU: With Rapper's Delight?

GLENN: Rapper's Delight.

STU: Well, that's the Seventies.

GLENN: I know. That was just a, that was a coming echo. That was like, ooh, trouble.

STU: Is this any deeper than you just don't like rap?

GLENN: Nope, nope.

STU: This is a legitimate viewpoint. I'm just trying to get to the bottom.

GLENN: No, it is legitimate. It's legitimate.

STU: You think rap in particular, dancing rap about dinner at a friend's house is what ended the society?

GLENN: Uh-huh, Rapper's Delight. Play it. Do you have it? Sugar, Sugarhill Gang, Sugar -- stop just a second.

Dan, I have to question. How do you just happen to have that ready so rapidly?

DAN: Well, I don't know this is an issue we need to dive into at this point in time. I think we can just continue with your point and not get sidetracked. We only have a couple of minutes left here in the segment and I think --

STU: It's a very large computer system.

DAN: Thank you, Stu.

GLENN: Go ahead. See, right here. Driving in our car, we should have said, this is trouble, this is going to lead to nowhere good.

STU: If you've got a guy who --

GLENN: I liked this at the time.

STU: It's like 30 minutes long, too.

GLENN: No, I know. I liked this at the time.

DAN: 5:01.

STU: This is the short version, trust me. It's not 5:01.

GLENN: I liked this song when it came out, but we should have known better. We should have said this is not going to end well. This is like when it's funny, when you're watching your kids and they're running, you know, they're running with the croquet ball.

STU: The croquet ball? What kind of reference is that?

GLENN: Well, I just, it's a very painful reference because it was very funny when Raphe was holding the croquet ball and he was trying to use it as a baseball and I said, no, son, it's not a base -- and then he hit me in the head with it. What I'm saying is, we should have known then it's not going to end well.

STU: I disagree. When you can sing a song about not liking a meal at a friend's house, that is --

GLENN: Is that really what this song is about?

STU: Well, it gets there. He goes to his friend's house and the food is not good and he doesn't -- he wants to be nice because it's his buddy but he has to -- at the end it's too disgusting.

GLENN: I'm just saying that I believe this may -- I'm going to drop this marker in the water that this may have been the turning point.

STU: I want to fold debate, particularly lists.

GLENN: Bring it on.

(OUT 10:52).

(Music playing)

GLENN: No, now see Stu says that this is a sign of the end times.

STU: A little bit. It's hard to deny.

GLENN: I mean, who doesn't like MMMBop.

STU: You'd be surprised at the amount of people who would raise their hand.

GLENN: Yeah, but a lot of people in their college years, guys, had MMMBop posters on their wall.

STU: No one had that -- you don't have an example of someone who --

GLENN: Oh, yeah. Dan Andros.

STU: Dan Andros?

GLENN: The producer of the program here.

STU: How old are you?

DAN: Look, it worked at the time and I stand by it.

STU: It worked at the time what, to lure teenage boys?

GLENN: He was a very big fan of Hanson and now he's met Chris Hansen, the older brother.

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.
