Glenn Beck: Your Science Czar is a Commie

VOICE: The Glenn Beck program presents Spotlight on Science.

PRESIDENT OBAMA: We will restore science to its rightful place.

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

GLENN: All right. I made a pretty hefty charge here a minute ago that I quoted Barack Obama saying that healthcare ‑‑ I'm sorry, reparations don't go far enough. They need to be able to get into our schools, they need to get into, you know, colleges and level the playing field and have free universal college, that way it will disproportionately help blacks. He said that about healthcare and also about the green jobs. Let's see if we can see this be implemented now without you know what's going on. Let's look at our science update today. His new science czar, what is this guy's first name, Jones? Van Jones. Van Jones is a guy that was all caught up in the Rodney King trial and he was actually arrested, went into jail in April, got out in August. So he was arrested for some pretty bad stuff apparently. I mean, that's not a night in jail. He said, you know, I was just an angry guy when I went in but when I came out, I was a radical communist. This isn't, you know, 1968. This is in the 1990s. He was a radical communist. He hasn't shed that. He's still a radical. He is still a black nationalist. He is also now your green job czar. How did he go from a guy who was riding the streets, going to jail, becoming a communist to the green job czar? Well, because he said he found the eco movement and decided this is the best way to carry out his agenda. This is just a quote from one of his speeches. He said, I don't want to offend anybody here. I might be too radical for you. Are you with me? He asked. One woman called out, just being real. Quote: They can now put up wind turbines — almost like a windmill, but this is not your mama’s windmill, it’s like a big jet engine sitting up there — and make power. Somebody's going to make a billion dollars deploying that technology (GE). I think it should be you. They have this thing called solar panels. A solar panel is a piece of glass almost. Right now wealthy people can put that on their homes and it cost money to put it there. But once it's up, sunlight hits it and turns it into electricity and powers the house. So you're paying electricity bill, but somebody else is just kicking it. Somebody's going to make a million dollars figuring out a way to get these solar panels made and deployed in our hoods. I think it should be you.

After he was done ‑‑ now, by the way, this quote comes not from some radical rightwing hatchet piece. This is a piece in the New Yorker on Van Jones: After he was through, Jones made his way out of the nearly empty downtown, he says to the reporter, quote: That was my street rap. You get to hear my elite rap later on.

So he's admitting that he's "Working" the program. A few months ago Jones has published a book. It's out called The Green Collar Economy: How One Solution Can Fix Our Two Biggest Problems. Hmmm. In it he argues the best way to fight both global warming and urban poverty is to create millions of green jobs. Listen carefully, please. Your country is being hijacked. They are using things like green jobs as a front. They are using healthcare as a front. In the context of Obama style reparations, that's what they're doing. In it, he argues, in his book, The Green Collar Economy, he argues the best way to fight global warming and urban poverty is by millions of green jobs, weatherizing buildings, installing solar panels and constructing mass transit systems. A percentage of these jobs ‑‑ Jones is purposely vague about how many ‑‑ should go to the disadvantaged and the chronically unemployed. Chronically unemployed. Usually there's a reason you are chronically unemployed. He says in his book, quote: The green economy should not just be about reclaiming thrown‑away stuff. It should be about reclaiming thrown‑away communities.

This is yet another community organizer. This is yet another black nationalist in the same way that Reverend Jeremiah Wright is a black nationalist. This is an acclaimed, self‑acclaimed communist who has just written the book, "How one solution, green collar jobs, can fix two problems." Climate, if he even believes it. He wasn't a believer before he went to prison. If he even believes it. Climate will solve inner city poverty. How? Because we'll take money from the people who can afford to have this piece of glass thingy and the jet engine on their house and get them to pay to put a jet ‑‑ I'm just quoting him ‑‑ them to pay to put the jet engine, as he likes to describe it, and piece of glass ‑‑ that I like to call a solar panel ‑‑ on your home. And then on their home. And then on the person's that lives next to you, and the one that lives next to them. And then everybody in the inner city, you know, all the homes in the hood. That's what this is really all about. And America, you need to wake up because this country is being transformed, and if you don't think ‑‑ it's way beyond socialism. It is way beyond socialism. It is into black nationalism.

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."
