GLENN: This is absolutely amazing. We have had almost a 700 point swing in the Dow in 15 minutes. We were losing almost 700 points. We're now only down two points. This is the most amazing thing to watch. I hope you are watching it from the sidelines. This is the most amazing thing to watch and yet it is a distraction. This is the cakes and circuses. This is what America unfortunately is -- oh, we're up 45 points now. This is what America is watching, and we gauge everything now, "how's the Dow doing, how's the Dow doing." Forget about the Dow. Forget about the Dow. What is happening behind the scenes. Are we -- you know what, I'll tell you, I really, truly believe that there was finally someone on the campaign trail that said exactly the way at least I feel and I think a lot of America feels today. I want you -- it wasn't one of the candidates. Don't get your hopes up. Listen to this question that was spoken from a member of the audience at a McCain rally.

VOICE: Welcome to Wisconsin. This thing is working. Thanks for coming. I'm mad! I'm really mad! [APPLAUSE]. And what's going to surprise you, it's not the economy. It's the socialists taking over our country.

GLENN: This guy -- stop it, stop it. This guy should run for President. I know nothing about him except that sentence. This guy should run for President of the United States. Where is anyone saying that? We have these people in Washington taking our country over and it is being stolen from us. They are now talking about socializing all the banks, nationalizing all of the banks, something I told you they were going to do months and months ago, and it ain't going to stop at the banks, gang. It's going to go -- it's going to go financial sector, then it's going to go transportation, then it's going to go energy. They have got their fingers in the pie and if anybody says, well, at the end of this we're going to have to get their fingers back out, you are not going to get their fingers back out! Government doesn't get smaller. This is why John -- this is how John McCain can win! But I don't think he believes it. Sarah Palin does. Smaller government! Nationalizing mortgages? What! Smaller government. Get them out! Let us fix it. These are the architects who have brought us this. You are saving all of the people who brought this down on us. Those leaders in congress, those in the White House, those on Wall Street, those in the financial sector. Why are we saving the people who brought us this? You want to nationalize all the mortgages that have been in default? Who is in default right now? Rich and poor, those who bought more than they could afford.

The economy -- gang, be honest. Your economy is not that bad right now. I don't mean that you don't have struggling, I don't mean you are not having a hard time. I'm not dismissing the people who have 150,000, the 150,000 who have lost jobs. I'm not talking about those. Gas is down almost a buck. You have more money in your pocket most likely today than you did a month ago or two months ago. The fundamentals of your economy, the things that you need on day-to-day spending. What's changed is fear. You think you're more broke. You might actually be more broke in your 401(k) but for spending today, it hasn't hit you yet. So who has it hit? Who are we rescuing? We're rescuing the people who bought too much house.

A year from now we're not going to be saying that. A year from now it's going to be somebody else. But why are we rescuing all of the people who brought us this problem? You played by the rules. You didn't buy too much house. You didn't get yourself into crushing debt. "Well, Glenn, too many people are going to be suffering." Yes, yes, a lot of people are going to be suffering. A lot, an unspeakable amount of people are going to be suffering. But you know what? We're not living in Africa! The difference between our suffering and our poor and those in Africa is dramatic. Why? Because we have the rule of law. Because we still have the ability to pull ourselves out. Because we're not ruled by gangs and thugs and criminals -- well, I take that one back. This country is being stolen and it is being stolen -- keep your eye on something else. Please read up on something else. The unions, the unions are about to -- America is going to change after this election and it is going to change overnight. Look at what's happening with ACORN. We're going to talk to Pat here down in a little while in Houston. In Houston, more fraud, more voter fraud. It's happening all over the country and it's happening through an organization called ACORN. ACORN, not just friends with Barack Obama. He can't say, "Well, I don't really know them." He was a guy who was in, he trained the people in ACORN. He was a trainer. He said, we're like family. You bet they are like family. And they are perpetrating fraud on this election at a scale we have never seen before. And while everybody's watching the Dow, that's what's going on. While everybody's watching the Dow, our government is just going to take money and just buy the banks. This is socialism.

Did you see the story in the Washington Post today? Not the Washington times. The Washington Post. Here it is. The worst financial crisis since the Great Depression is claiming another casualty. American style capitalism. Since the 1930s U.S. banks were the flag ships of Americans' economic might and emulation by other nations were -- I'm sorry. I have to put my glasses on -- were fiercely free market system in the United States was expected and encouraged but the market turmoil that is draining the nation's wealth and upended Wall Street now threatens to put the banks at the heart of the U.S. financial system at least partly in the hands of the government. That's why that guy's mad as hell, because you know it and I know it. You know what's happening. We are being socialized. And I don't mean we're going to be -- oh, we're going to be like Norway? No, we're not going to be like Norway. We're being socialized rapidly all in the name of, "Quick, do something," and gang, it ain't gonna last long. You don't socialize, you don't turn into Russia as Russia's collapsing. It's like the Soviet Union. Instead of saying, hey, we're going to go capitalist; you know what, we're going to do more social programs. You collapse faster. It doesn't make any sense. You know it and I know it. Well, where are the politicians that are standing up and saying stop! Right now, stop! That's how John McCain wins this election, if he could say it and believe it, but I don't think he does. Sarah Palin believes it. You believe it.

All right. Back to this guy.

VOICE: Sit down. I'm not done. Thank you. You are going to have to give me --

VOICE: When I see her --

VOICE: Go ahead.

VOICE: Let me finish, please.

VOICE: Yes.

GLENN: Stop, stop. Don't laugh at that. Cheer him again! Cheer him again. John McCain works for you. "Let me finish, please." Well, you're going to have to -- "No, I don't. I'm a citizen of the United States. I pay your frickin' salary. Out of those seven houses, beer bought maybe five of those houses. You being in the Senate, I purchased those two houses. Sit down. Shut up. I want you to listen to me. Where is my defender? Where is my representative?" Don't laugh at that. Applaud for somebody. With respect, with dignity, with peace in our hearts we need to still tell our people in congress and in the White House, "You work for me." It's time for you to listen because I've heard you two talk for two years now and you're not saying anything that I want to hear. So maybe you should start listening to me because it's clear to me you guys don't get it. All right, go ahead.

VOICE: Excuse me.

VOICE: Thank you. I think it's so important in today's country what we're really missing out on, when you have an Obama, Pelosi, and the rest of the hooligans up there going to run this country, we've got to have (inaudible). (Applause).

GLENN: Okay, stop. I want to play one more piece of audio for you. I want to play one more piece of audio for you. Now, I want to make it very, very clear. Barack Obama makes it very clear, he doesn't have anything to do with this organization. That's right, he doesn't. He doesn't have anything to do with this organization. But if I were supported, if I were on the air and, you know, you found out that all of the extreme -- if you were listening to me and I could say, "You know what, I have nothing to do with it," but you found out my biggest supporters are the Black Panthers and the nation of Islam, wouldn't you say, "Well, wait a minute, wait a minute, there's something to his message. What is attracting them to his message," right? If you are listening to me and the KKK says, oh, you've got to listen to Glenn Beck and they are doing all kinds of campaigns for me, wouldn't you say, wait a minute, what does the KKK like about his message? That doesn't mean that I would endorse the KKK, but if the KKK is endorsing me and pushing me, you would say, wait a minute, what is it I'm missing here? Because I don't hear that KKK message. What am I missing? Listen to this, and this video should be played by John McCain.

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.

It's high time to leave the partisan politics behind and focus on the facts about face masks and whether or not they really work against COVID-19.

On the radio program Tuesday, Glenn Beck spoke with Drs. Scott Jensen and George Rutherford about the scientific evidence that proves or disproves the effectiveness of mask wearing to stop the spread of the coronavirus. Then, Dr. Karyln Borysenko joined to break down where the massive political divide over masks came from in the first place.

"I think if we were to talk about this a couple months ago, I might have said, 'Well, there's the science of masks, and there's the emotions of masks.' But, unfortunately, there's something in between," Jensen said. "I would have thought that the science of masks would have to do with the physics of masks, so I did a video a couple months ago where I talked about the pore side of a cotton mask or a surgical mask."

He explained that properly worn masks can help reduce the spread of virus particles, but cautioned against a false-sense of security when wearing a mask because they are far from providing complete protection.

"If you have a triple-ply mask, the pore size will end up being effectively five microns. And five microns, to a COVID-19 virus particle, is 50 times larger. That's approximately the same differential between the two-inch separation between the wires of a chain-link fence, and a gnat," Jensen explained.

"But now what we're seeing is if we have some collision of COVID-19 viral particles with the latticework of any mask ... if you're breathing out or breathing in and the viral particles collide with the actual latticework of a mask, I think intuitively, yes, we can reduce the amount of virus particles that are going back and forth."

Dr. Rutherford said masks are essential tools for fighting COVID-19, as long as you wear them correctly. He laid out the three main reasons he believes we should all be wearing masks.

"So, we're trying to do three things," he said. "First of all, we're trying to protect the people around you, in case you are one of the 60% of people who have asymptomatic infection and don't know it. The second thing we're trying to do is to protect you. The third thing we're trying to do is, if you get infected, you'll get infected at a lower dose, and then you're less likely to develop symptoms. That's the threefer."
