Glenn Beck: Media misses Obama


Stu calls in live from Hawaii...

GLENN: Can we go now? I want to get this on right away. Excuse me, that was unprofessional but I just want to get this on right away. Our chief medical correspondent, Steve Burguiere, otherwise known as Stu, is out today. Where are you, Stu?

STU: Oh, Glenn, I'm traveling as you know right now, trying to figure out some of the big medical advancements and situations that are going on right now.

GLENN: Yeah.

STU: You know, the human brain is really a magnificent thing. It's part of the body that processes information. It manages what you do, and it's capable of creativity. Like if a dog in a...

GLENN: Hello?

STU: No, it didn't work. I was trying to come up with an analogy there. But the brain also has a dark side, and it's very important that people know about it. It's capable of bringing us to a dark place and that's what doctors and I, you know, other doctors and I have noticed in our studies.

GLENN: You're not a doctor.

STU: There is a heavy upturn in the level of depression and in separation anxiety among a very important sub group of our population.

GLENN: What are you even talking about?

STU: I'm talking about medical news that you care about, news you can use.

GLENN: There's some where are you?

STU: The news is important, Glenn, because this is not just some group. It's a very important, intellectual group of Americans.

GLENN: That are going through depression?

STU: And separation anxiety. I'm talking, of course, of news reporters. All of a sudden in the middle of summer Barack Obama who has been the nonstop focus of media for months has just left. I mean, he's just gone. We were looking all over for him. He's just gone.

GLENN: He's on vacation.

STU: And he's leaving reporters with nothing to do. It's very sad, Glenn. What are reporters really supposed to do with Barack and his family in Hawaii? How will they know that white people are bitter gun clinging racists that won't vote for him because he has a funny name? How are they even going to know about that? It's really sad.

GLENN: Are you okay?

STU: It's just, I

GLENN: You have the memory thing happening and or the creativity was lost and now you're

STU: I'm just saying it just, it's just, when you think about it, it gets really sad.

GLENN: Where are you?

STU: These reporters, Glenn, have seen Barack Obama sign his name. You know, they haven't been seeing him, you know, give autographs or sign someone's breasts or anything in quite some time. All week. It's just really sad, you know. I just, I mean, there's so little going on. What are we supposed to do with our time?

GLENN: Well, there's a lot going on. There's Georgia going on, there's I've just been forced to really look hard for scientific stories on this factfinding mission I'm on.

GLENN: Where again where are you?

STU: I'm in Hawaii. That's where Barack Obama is. It's very sad here.

GLENN: You're in Hawaii? Were you stalking him?

STU: I'm just saying I've had to come up with different things to try to cover here. For example, what are the effects of millions of individual differently shapes pieces of rock on the human foot? It's impossible for a human being to stand on an oddly shaped board and project himself powered by only the waves of the ocean. Is it possible to protect the quality of hydration for everyday people from the potentially polluted rain using a small umbrella in your glass? These are all questions I've had to answer this week.

GLENN: Just because Barack Obama's gone?

STU: Yeah, there's nothing else to do in Hawaii. I've been trying to just trying to research the answers to those questions.

GLENN: Have you seen Obama?

STU: I haven't really had time per se to look for him with these other experiments I've been doing.

GLENN: Sounds like you were

STU: Like if you lay a towel on the beach and you lay on it, your skin might turn colors. Is there some sort of is there some sort of interesting

GLENN: Connection?

STU: Connection, yeah, connection, obviously to something.

GLENN: Stu, you keep up the hard scientific

STU: I'm going to need another week

GLENN: Pardon me?

STU: To finish my research out here. You know, if the conventions are coming up, what's the effect of this community?

GLENN: What community?

STU: What is the effect of the Denver convention on Hawaii? I should be here to check it out. You know what I mean?

GLENN: Shouldn't you go to Denver?

STU: How does the jet ski really work? These are crazy. How do I find out about that?

GLENN: All right. Thank you very much, Stu. By the way, can you Stu, can you should we when should we let people in on our convention coverage ideas?

STU: I think we need a little bit more time to flesh that out and make sure that they

GLENN: For the Democratic convention, I don't think we need any time to flesh that one out.

STU: I'm just saying that

GLENN: Let's just say that I promise you you won't get this kind of coverage of the conventions any place else. I will say, though, also we had a hard time coming up with an interesting funny kind of fun angle on the Republican convention. I mean, we were also talking like, why don't we just go to Milwaukee. There's got to be something more fun to do in Milwaukee.

STU: It's sad, isn't it?

GLENN: It was really sad. The Democratic convention, we came up with all kinds of ideas.

STU: And you'll be hearing them.

GLENN: And you will be participating in them. And are we sending you out? We've got a couple of people we're considering sending out to conventions, and I think you'll enjoy our coverage. When is it, two, three weeks away, two weeks?

STU: Not too far. It's definitely in August, right? Two weeks away, something like that? I'll find out the date.

GLENN: I mean, I don't really care what they even say inside. I really don't. I mean, this is just going to be no, this is going to be good to cover. It's going to be good to cover. So and we'll have it covered for you.

STU: August 5th through the 28th, Glenn. And community credentials are now available.

GLENN: But I have to volunteer.

STU: Yeah, they are sending the homeless people to the zoo for the weekend but you can get credentials if you are in the community and nonhomeless.

GLENN: Maybe you can volunteer driving people that are homeless to the zoo.

STU: What about if we volunteer what if we start taking some of the people they sent to the zoo and driving them back to the convention?

GLENN: You know what, Stu, I'm thinking? I'm thinking part of our coverage should include a homeless bus taking those people from the zoo back to the convention area.

STU: Because that's the place to be. I mean, that's where you are going to get big donations. Remember that all the Democrats are the ones that care.

GLENN: Free rides for the homeless back to the cameras.

STU: >From no

GLENN: We could only drop you off right here in front of these cameras. Sorry.

STU: It's not like the Democrats wanted to remove, by giving them movie tickets what's happening here?

GLENN: That is the most I mean, I can't believe. I said to somebody last night, I said, you know, they are shutting down dissent, they are disinviting their own delegates. I mean, who's more angry? The Hillary people over the Obama people or the conservatives that feel like they've been abandoned completely? Who has a right to be more and you don't hear anybody and I'm checking into it. You don't hear anybody silencing people at the Republican convention, do you? They are doing it. And they're sending the homeless people to the zoos. Then they're building this warehouse Guantanamo Bay now in Denver. I mean, the stuff that these people are doing, the hypocrisy. And I said to somebody, where is the Democrat that says, my gosh, what has my party turned into? Where is that person? Where is anyone on television and the media that is doing the same thing that I'm doing with the conservative side? Where are you? Is there no one in the Democratic party that is outraged that the American people are being sold a pack of lies?

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.
