Glenn Beck: Pelosi's book bombs




Book link: Know Your Power

GLENN: Nancy Pelosi has -- oh, by the way, hello, you sick twisted freak. From Radio City in Midtown Manhattan, third most listened to show in all of America. My name is Glenn Beck. Nancy Pelosi is still blocking offshore drilling. Stop the music. Listen to this one. She is still blocking offshore drilling even though now a majority, slim that it may be, a slim majority of Californians now favor offshore drilling. What? Now a majority, slim majority now favor offshore drilling. Those are Californians that are for it. Wow. Nancy Pelosi's awfully popular. By the way, I saw -- last night on the Drudge Report -- I don't know if it's still there. On the Drudge Report Nancy Pelosi's book was, like, 800 something -- it was like -- let me go to the Drudge Report now. It was like 843 last night. She's got a new book out. I just clicked on the Drudge Report and looked for the story. Last night when I went to bed, I look it up and I see. There was like 843 and I went, oh, my gosh. Nancy Pelosi, she's 843. But you know what? That will spike. Her new book is coming out. That will spike because now Drudge has that and people will be clicking on the book because they don't -- oh, God forbid Nancy Pelosi looks bad. It was 843 when I went to bed last night. Now after a full 12 hours or so of Nancy Pelosi being on the front page of the Drudge Report about her book, she's now climbing the charts. She's down to number 1,610 on Amazon.com. So that was pretty -- that's pretty good. Actually, you know what? I've spent some time looking for other books.

VOICE: And now another book currently more successful than Nancy Pelosi's book.

GLENN: Well, it's -- I mean, there's -- you know, there's a couple -- you know, the obvious big-time author, Tori Spelling, has sTORI Telling. It's a small S and then TORI, sTORI telling, like Tori Spelling? Isn't that funny (laughing)? She's beating Nancy Pelosi.

VOICE: This has been another piece of crap book that's a smaller piece of crap than Nancy Pelosi's book.

GLENN: Wait, wait, wait. I've got more.

VOICE: And now another book currently more successful than Nancy Pelosi's book.

GLENN: More successful than Nancy Pelosi right now on the best seller list, the Guernsey Literary and Potato Peel Pie Society book.

VOICE: This has been another piece of crap book that's a smaller piece of crap than --

GLENN: Stop, stop, stop. I got a better one.

VOICE: And now another book currently more successful than Nancy Pelosi's book.

GLENN: It's been out for a year. "An Inconvenient Book."

VOICE: This has been another piece of crap book that's a smaller piece of crap than Nancy Pelosi's book.

GLENN: Well, I resent that. It's not a piece of crap book. It's just been out for a year and yet I'm proud to say my book, "An Inconvenient Book," beating Nancy Pelosi.

You know what, let me tell you something. This is how out of touch the Democrats are. Nancy Pelosi is -- I mean, could she be more unpopular right now? This is what you get when you vote against something and not for something. I think most people voted against the Republicans in the last tour of duty there at the voting booth. I think most people were voting against the Republicans and so they voted for people like Nancy Pelosi. And now Nancy Pelosi is blocking legislation to start offshore drilling. They are -- the country's crying out, would you please start drilling. But congress has gone on vacation for a month. Now, some Democrats, this according to the San Francisco Chronicle, some Democrats are getting ancy fearing the party's stance could hurt them in the fall elections, but Pelosi insists opening new areas to drilling won't lower gas prices in the short-term. Well, how about the long term, Nance? She believes a vote would only help the GOP blame the Democrats for high gas prices. She says, "I will not give this administration an excuse for its failure." You know what, are you four? I don't care whose fault it is quite honestly, Nancy. Let me give you the benefit of the doubt. You didn't get us here alone. The Republicans had lots of opportunity to do it. They didn't do it, either. You both suck. Now fix the problem. She's blocking a vote on offshore drilling because in her own words, quote: I'm trying to save the planet.

Stu, could you just look up, could you Google for me something real quick?

STU: Surely, Glenn.

GLENN: Okay. Could you just Google the oath that members of the house of representatives have to take when they put their hands on the Bible?

STU: Sure, I'll look it up.

GLENN: All right. Just look it up for me real quick. That should be pretty -- she says, I'm not going to be diverted from a political tactic from a course of action that has a big picture view. A vision about an energy independent future that reduces our dependence on fossil fuels and focuses on those renewables that are protective for the environment. I am trying to save the planet.

Do you have it yet, Stu?

STU: Glenn, I'm searching oath for the house of representatives and I'm going to save the planet, and I do not see it.

GLENN: Can you just search for the oath? I'd like to -- let me just hear the oath that she took.

STU: I don't see it yet. Hold on.

GLENN: I believe it's protect, defend the Constitution of the United States, so help me God. I believe that's what it is.

STU: My computer's not working, Glenn. I can't tell you what it is.

GLENN: All right. Is that the new technology?

STU: Yeah, new technology is coming.

GLENN: You know what, it's coming soon. Don't worry about it. Stu okay.

GLENN: Protect and defend the Constitution of the United States. I believe that's what it is. From all, you know, from -- what is it, all threats, foreign and domestic. I don't, I don't -- I'm sorry, I don't see "Save the planet" in anybody's -- does anybody want that as the oath of office for the speaker of the house or any member of congress or the President of the United States? Does anyone want the "Save the planet" in? Because we can vote on that. Why don't we vote on that, shall we? Save the planet. Now, I know right now there are some hippie dope-smoking San Francisco listener going, "This guy hates, man, if we save the planet, we'll save ourselves. Why do you hate the planet? You can destroy the planet and not exist." It's crazy because usually hippies are the ones that have the bumper stickers, "Act locally, think globally." Saving the planet would require us thinking locally. I believe if we save ourselves, we'll save the planet. Now, how could I possibly say something as crazy as that? I don't know. I mean, I'm watching the Olympic games starting next week where, you know, everybody's wearing surgical masks, you know, and you can't even see -- everybody's eyes are red. They had to go out and take slaves from the countryside and clean out all of the algae in the harbor there because of industrialized waste. No, but don't worry. We're the big problem. Once you destroy America, once you cripple America and America no longer has the economic power in the world to be able to be the industrial leader, to be the intellectual leader, to be the economic power, once you put us on the ropes and make us dependent on places like Russia, Iran, Saudi Arabia and China, oh, my gosh, you're right. The planet's going to be fixed. Because I believe that China, Russia, Iran, Saudi Arabia, Venezuela, I believe those countries will be much more kind to the environment than we could ever be. Don't you agree? I mean, Russia, they're so cute and cuddly. China, oh, I just love them to pieces. Oh, it's great. And you know what? They take those bodies out of the rice paddies when they drown the little children in the rice paddies. The government takes that's out. They don't leave them to decay. Of course, if they would decay in the rice paddies, it might make good fertilizer. Have they thought of that? Somehow or another we're the big enemy. And these people think that if we cripple ourselves somehow or another, the planet's going to get greener. I mean, do these people -- have they read the newspaper lately? Has Nancy Pelosi -- or has she been busy on her book? She's probably been busy on her book. I wonder if there's another -- hang on, let me look for another book that is beating Nancy Pelosi right now. Oh, got one.

VOICE: And now, another book currently more successful than Nancy Pelosi's book.

GLENN: More successful than Nancy Pelosi's new book, My Horizontal Life, a Collection of One-Night Stands.

VOICE: This has been another piece of crap book that's a smaller piece of crap than Nancy Pelosi's book.

GLENN: Do they read the paper or are they busy trying to write their own books? Are they paying attention at all to what's going on?

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.
