Glenn Beck: Obama wants your thermostat

VOICE: The Glenn Beck program presents Spotlight on Science.

PRESIDENT OBAMA: We'll restore science to its rightful place.

VOICE: A series dedicated to President Obama's passion for everything science.

GLENN: The climate czar, Carol Browner, wants your thermostat. Thank God for science -- no, I'm sorry. Got to put science back in her place. Thank science for science. We the American people can now rest easy. Obama's climate czar, not kidding, not making it up, somebody he appoints as a czar is a former leader in the Socialist International group, a group that advocates one world government, that Carol Browner. Carol Browner is out there giving media interviews now and compared to how clumsy the Obama administration looks on the economy, they are crystal clear on the environment. Czar Browner enlightened the readers of U.S. News and World Report, a fantastic magazine that people may or may not read, U.S. News and World Report questioned: How much have attitudes shifted on climate change? Stu, can you give me the real answer? Give me that tomorrow, will you? I'd like the real answers on these. How much have attitudes shifted on climate change? Czar Browner says, I think first of all that the science has just become incredibly clear that the impacts are real, that they will be real and we need to do something right away. We need to make sure that we're moving electricity in the smartest way -- listen to this -- and using the most cost effective electricity at the right time of day. Eventually we can get to a system where an electric company will be able to hold back some of the power so that your air conditioner won't operate at its peak.

Do you remember when the people that were all around Obama said that people like me were crazy and just conspiracy theorists and, oh, well, you're just, they're never going to try to control the thermostat in your home; that's crazy. Only in an emergency. Quote: Eventually we can get to a system where an electric company will be able to hold back some of the power so maybe your air conditioner won't operate at its peak. Can't wait for that. I can't wait for the 97 degree day in August when Czar Browner in Washington decides it's in my country's best interest to make sure I'm not cooling my house. And, of course, they are going to know which houses are sufficiently cooled and, you know, when they cut them back, when they cut back the power, nothing could wrong there like in 2003 when 30,000 people died in a two-week heat wave. Nothing like that could happen. I mean, the government is definitely going to know which houses have old people in them and need them to be cooler and which ones don't have old people. They are going to need to know, they will know exactly which ones have little children in them as well or people who just got out of the hospital or whatever, they'll know that because they are going to control all of our medical records and they will know exactly who's in the house. Oh, and by the way, if you want to sell your house, they are also going to have your fingerprints as well. So they will know exactly who is where. There's no way the government would turn down the air conditioning at the wrong place and kill someone. I mean, you know, that just doesn't -- the only thing that has become incredibly clear on the science of climate change is that they can't decide whether to call it global warming or call it climate change. She also says we need to do something, which means of course we need to implement one of my favorite socialist ideas, cap and trade, which is already failing in Europe. Quote: There's a long history of the government making decisions and creating opportun ities for business -- there is a long history of the government making decisions and creating opportunities for businesses, and I think you've got a growing number of businesses in this arena that understand that. Yes, yes, businesses realize what big overreaching governments do to them and that's why they are preparing for the taxation onslaught by hemorrhaging jobs like crazy. Of course, the big, big, big corporations like GE, well, they've put their lobbyists in gear. So they know that you're not going to pass anything that will hurt them, but everybody else. Czar Browner saved the best for last, though. She gave us a glimpse into our glorious future under her socialism where government knows better than you.

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."
