Glenn's Cabinet


Glenn Beck live in HD - July 17th at a movie theater near you

GLENN: And these movie theatres in several states are now sold out. And I just, last night I just heard, I don't remember which movie chain tried to get permission and, fine with me but I don't know how Fathom Events does this because it always has to be live, they said can we do other show times. And I said, there's not enough water to replenish my body in time to do it. I mean, I'll sweat like 40 gallons.

STU: I know that, like, a lot of these theatres only use this technology in one, if I'm understanding this right, one screen.

GLENN: There are some theatres that have multiple screens and they have already opened them up to multiple screens and they're sold out and now they want to go to multiple showings. So -- but we will try. It is only one performance and this is Thursday night. Go to GlennBeck.com to fine out all of the information. And then we're in Dallas and there's a couple of things going on. I just found out somebody else is coming to the performance on Thursday. On Friday we're going to be in Houston. There is somebody in Houston that is going to arrive that I can guarantee you will be nonstop standing ovations as they are sitting in the crowd in Houston, Texas. Guarantee you. And it might be somebody that I'm considering putting on my cabinet because if I were running, I'm giving the ultimate politically incorrect speech this week because we wrap up Beck '08 Unelectable, our comedy tour, I'm giving the complete -- I'm giving the speech really honestly that I think the President should give. He would be completely unelectable, but it's the truth. It's what every American wants to hear. So I'm giving that on Thursday. I think I need a cabinet. So you're looking at, like, the secretary of energy. I mean, who are you going to do? The only one that really comes to mind, she's not strong enough, the governor from Alaska. I'm digging her.

STU: She would be fantastic secretary of energy.

GLENN: Oh, I'm digging her. If she weren't married and I'm not married, oh, yeah, come on, bring it on. I don't even remember what she looks like. I just find her energy talk so erotic. You know what I mean? She's just like, oh, we could drill here all day long, and I just, I don't know. There's something about her that I just love.

STU: She's fantastic. She would be a great choice for that. I mean, that's a serious -- you don't have that sort of pull. You're not going to get a good candidate like that.

GLENN: No, I'm saying if I'm President. If I'm President, a lot of things change. I don't give you the option not to serve. You're serving. "Hey, governor, what's your face, come to Washington. You're serving."

STU: Really?

GLENN: Yeah, I would do a draft. I do a draft, yeah.

STU: See, I don't think that that would work out.

GLENN: No, I think it would. I think there's enough people out there -- because you know what? I may not even need that because in my administration there wouldn't be any bullcrap. You know what I mean? We would sit in the cabinet room and you could televise it or whatever you want and people could say something and I'd say, that's genius. Well, Glenn, that will kill all of the one-eared bunnies in all of Wisconsin. I would say, sucks to be a one-eared bunny, doesn't it?

STU: You know, it does suck to be a one-eared bunny.

GLENN: It does. It really does. Hang on, let me weep for the bunnies. Okay, I'm over it. Let's drill through their heads for more energy. Department of Homeland Security, you know who I want as Department of Homeland Security, I not only pardon Compean and Ramos, I appoint them as the head of Homeland Security. How's that? Hey, I know you guys spent some time in jail. I'm erasing that and... I'm giving you a raise. You know those guys that set you up? You know those guys who wouldn't do what we were supposed to do on the border and you spent time in jail? Yeah, you get to fire them. We can do it on TV if you want. Go ahead.

STU: See, I don't know if there's, like, partners in these jobs. I think it's typically one person --

GLENN: It's my administration. Homeland Security is a big job. There's two borders. One could be Department of Homeland Security north and the other one for south.

STU: How hard do you push for the northern job. That's a much easier job.

GLENN: Actually, you know what, I think the -- I mean, not right now because the drug cartels, but I think on terrorism, I think the northern border is more dangerous than the southern border. I'm just saying. Or we could go with Sheryl Crow. She could get things done, you know? She could just, we could sit down and talk to everybody.

STU: She could sing a very nice song about sun or all she wants to do.

GLENN: Something like that.

STU: Las Vegas or something.

GLENN: Secretary of defense, I would like to nominate Ted Nugent.

STU: (Laughing).

GLENN: I just think secretary -- wouldn't that be great? Nobody would screw with us. Nobody -- we would just say -- as the President I would say, you know what, Iran, I told him I was going to sleep on it but Ted Nugent, our secretary of defense, he said he wants to come over and kick your ass. I'm going to sleep on it. You know what? If you have a change of heart, call me before tomorrow morning at 9:00 a.m. that damn phone will ring!

STU: Yeah. That will be the 3:00 a.m. call everyone's always talking about. In all the political commercials the phones always ring at 3:00 a.m. it's to avoid getting your ass kicked by Ted Nugent.

GLENN: Ted Nugent. We could reduce the size of the military like crazy because the guy we would have as secretary of defense is this close from being crazy. It would be great. I'm just saying.

STU: I love the pick. I mean, don't you -- should you consider, you know, maybe someone who has experience in, you know, some sort of qualifying position?

GLENN: Secretary of defense? Do you know what an experienced hunter Ted Nugent is?

STU: That's very true. I'm just saying that maybe in a, more of a --

GLENN: Yeah.

STU: War planning --

GLENN: Do you know Ted Nugent wants to go hunting with me? I said, Ted, are you out of your mind? He said, no, I want to take you hunting, brother. But Ted, you're crazy.

STU: That's the one person I would trust hunting with you. A, he's very safe with -- very responsible with firearms. B, he's one of the few people in America that don't want to kill you. I mean, this is a --

GLENN: He may have to. I'll be whining the whole time. Oh, can you imagine? Adam, Adam wants to go hunting with me, Greg Stube, war hero, Marcus Luttrell, war hero, and -- oh, and my nephew before he goes back to Iraq.

STU: Well, I mean --

GLENN: I said, are we -- Greg is a medic, right? I mean, we're going to need a doctor on site for me.

STU: Just walking up hills, let alone.

GLENN: Oh, my gosh. It will be like, just let's go to the store and get some meat. What are we hunting -- we can go to the store. It's all wrapped up in a styrofoam tray. Made, by the way, from petroleum! See, that's how the mind works. I will won't be able to get meat in the lies convenient little styrofoam tray because congress won't drill!

STU: But you have to consider that whenever you're going on a trip into the wilderness, you don't have television, you don't have movies. You need comic relief. And watching you walk up hills is --

GLENN: Oh, you know what, I'm going to be the guy that about halfway through the afternoon I'm going to find myself and one of them's going to say, you know, you've got a mighty pretty mouth, and I'll just start crying. That's --

STU: I mean, it's probable.

GLENN: I don't like nature.

STU: You really don't get along with it.

GLENN: I don't, I don't like nature. I'm the only guy who would be very, very happy with my head in a jar. Somebody would have to carry me around. I could just talk and think and, you know, wouldn't have to answer -- nobody would ever have to say, "Hey, can you get that?" Nope, can't, just a head in a jar.

STU: I mean, they could easily roll you down hills with the head in the jar. Maybe put the jar into like a plastic bubble and then they can roll you down the hills and that's an easy --

GLENN: Why would they need to roll me down a hill? Just leave me like on a windowsill.

STU: No, if you want to go on a camping trip --

GLENN: I live in San Diego. You put me on a windowsill, I'm looking at the ocean the whole time. I'm a head in a jar. I can do that anywhere. I can telecommute. I don't actually have to have a desk. I don't need a computer. I don't have hands. I'm only a head. It's fantastic.

STU: Are you trying to tell me you're so lazy that even if you had no torso, you still wouldn't go into nature and walk?

GLENN: Yes.

STU: Even if someone was carrying your head, you wouldn't go up a trill with trees?

GLENN: Yes.

STU: God.

GLENN: What's the point? I'll just look at it. Look at it. Look, it's a nice day outside. It's nice. I don't want to go out in it. It's hot. It's not a constant temperature.

STU: You are the only person in America with negative muscle tone. Like, that's how unathletic you are.

GLENN: Well, I've told you the story of when the doctor actually, you never want to hear a doctor stand behind you, back surgeon stand behind you and touch your body and then laugh. And I had one of the best surgeons in the country did that. He laughed. And I said, that's not really comforting. He said, no, I just, I've never, I've never felt anyone with less muscle tone than you. I said, hey, do I get an award for that? Do I get a special discount or anything?

STU: Look what we've done. This is what government does. We were trying to get your cabinet picked and then we talk about your head in a jar rolling down a hill for 20 minutes.

GLENN: Let me go to Matt.

No, wouldn't you rather have the President of the United States spend time on stuff like that, though? Really?

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.
