VOICE: Electoral votes, control of the Senate, popular vote count, the latest poll, control of the House, up-to-the-minute rumors and falsehoods. Fancy buzzwords, and more. It's a political geek election report on the Glenn Beck program.

STU: Well, Glenn, you talk about the Great Depression for three hours a day every day and somehow --

GLENN: I do.

STU: This is the most, the biggest downer in the entire program lately, the political geek update where honestly like, you look at the polls and there's not a lot of positive. I thought McCain was good in the last interview. He is going to have to be that good in the debate and everything else to have to turn this thing around. Right now if you take the polls and you look at the electoral map, you just take it as they are. Right now Obama's winning, which everyone knows. But let's get aggressive here. Let's start flipping some states for McCain. Let's say he comes back in some of these states and we flip Florida to McCain and then we flip North Carolina to McCain and Virginia and Ohio and New Mexico and Nevada and Colorado. We flip all of those that are currently Obama states to McCain.

GLENN: Holy cow.

STU: Obama still wins. That's the way it is right now. Now, that's pretty sad.

GLENN: Well, again, Reagan was losing to Carter until five days before the election.

STU: It's important to point out, anything can happen, especially in a one-on-one thing.

GLENN: You know what, I tell you my gut just says -- I can never predict these things. My gut just says that there's too much question out on Obama, that there's just too much, that when people close the door or pull that curtain closed, they are just going to say, "I just don't trust the man. There's just too much out there."

STU: There is a lot out there. And there are some polling that would describe what you're talking about, that people do get a little -- I mean, there are some things that are tightening. Our moment of hope today would be that McCain can do everything I just described and flip also Missouri or New Hampshire or something. That's your moment of hope, although we do also have the fact that the guy who had Mark Foley's seat has his own sex scandal and maybe we'll pick up at least one seat in the House.

GLENN: Thank you, Stu for -- is there more?

STU: I've got to call my last two states.

GLENN: All right, call your last two states. Jeez, these are so way out on a limb, they are going to be --

STU: As you know, 100% accuracy so far, Glenn, in the predicted states.

GLENN: We haven't even had the election yet.

STU: Today we call Vermont for Barack Obama and Tennessee for John McCain. Our official electoral count, John McCain 55, Barack Obama 17.

GLENN: The Dow, the big board, is suffering technical glitches. It has stopped again. It is frozen now twice today.

STU: This is one way to turn the economic situation around.

GLENN: Just turn it on. Just unplug it. Can we just unplug it? It was up one point. Now it's up 385 points and it just --

STU: Glenn, can I break some news here?

GLENN: Uh-huh.

STU: I believe we now confirm that the Dow Jones board is running windows Vista. Because, well, it's just frozen because I know. I looked at my stupid computer today.

GLENN: You know what it is? The government is investing in stocks. That's what it is! They might have said, you know what, let the government run the big board.

STU: This thing has run perfectly for decades and the day the government gets involved, it just freezes.

GLENN: Hmmm, that's weird, huh?

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."
