Gun toting Glenn


Glenn Beck's Common Sense


Available in book stores nationwide...

GLENN: That's right, my friends. From behind my cardboard microphone, allow me to go out on a limb here for just a minute here. I think, theory, I think the media may be slightly out of touch and perhaps no more out of touch in any other area besides guns. To you guns are a constitutional right. They help, you know, protect you, your family, you know, those things. They're something to street with respect. You use them responsibly, they provide peace of mind. But the media lives in Manhattan or Washington D.C. or the little green bubble in Los Angeles. You know, these are the places where, you know, acquiring a gun is more difficult than, you know, looking like me and then acquiring a night with Carrie Underwood. You know what I'm saying? It ain't happening. To me guns do not kill people. To the media guns, not people, are responsible for killing people. They are responsible for all criminal activity in America. It's the evil gun. People who have guns are threats. They are not responsible citizens. But I've learned something else. I had an interview last week with Senator John Thune and I want to play the clip. It starts with audio from Michael Bloomberg and then my reaction. Listen carefully. This is TV last week.

BLOOMBERG: Criminals will be able to contain conceal carry permits and walk the streets carrying handguns. They will be able to walk into bars in restaurants with guns, to be able to go to the movies with guns, and there will be nothing that our police officers can do about it.

GLENN (ARCHIVED): I went to the movie this weekend with a gun and surprise, surprise, I didn't kill anybody.

GLENN: Okay, this is what I said on television. Well, my gosh. It has set the liberal media on fire. Ahhhh! Ahhhhh! Ahhhh! That went made people go crazy. The Huffington Post headlined their story, Glenn Beck's Startling Post. Ahhhh! It was startling, wasn't it? I'm not sure exactly what was so startling about it but one, they can't imagine someone would be so unsafe to endanger American citizens by bringing a gun into their presence! This goes back to the leftist idea of what guns are. They're just a dangerous mistake by the founding fathers. They are in the Constitution for no other reason than for them to get powerful enough in the courts to remove them! That's all they're for.

Theory number two, I guess they think it's some sort of mass paranoia: Look at Glenn Beck, he's such a crazy person. He thinks movies are dangerous. He thinks at some point maybe he was at Transformers. Maybe those Transformers will come out of the screen and attack him. Yes, I do have to apologize to the AMC in Philadelphia. When I first saw the Bourne Identity, I was just trying to help Jason Bourne. I didn't know that was I thought he was being attacked by a 40 foot head. I didn't know. I just shot blindly at the screen.

This is again a fundamental misunderstanding of what guns are. For a lot of people in America with concealed carry permits, they're not something that you lock in your gun safe and pull out only when the alarm goes off and you hear glass breaking at 3:00 a.m. You conceal the weapon and carry it. Here's the shocking thing. Depending on where you live, you have probably been in a movie theater with guns every time you are in the movie theater. Ahhhh! Somehow or another you survived every single movie theater experience you had where someone had a concealed weapon. "Why are they concealing it? That's the real question. Why don't they just carry it out in the open?" If they would let me strap it to my leg, I would. You don't carry your gun only to situations that you deem dangerous in advance. "I don't know, honey, I normally don't take my gun with me but I have a feeling I may be robbed tonight." You carry your gun. 99.9 times you go out driving, you don't need a driver's license, but there is that off chance that something happens and the cop says, "Can I see your driver's license?" Oh, crap! You bring it with you every time. Sure, movies don't seem dangerous but neither did English class at Virginia Tech. Neither did immigration service center in Binghamton, New York. And could there been a situation that seems safer on the surface than the moments right after recess at an Amish school in Nickel Mines, Pennsylvania?

You see, when I leave my house in the morning, I take all of my rights with me, kind of like... mine, those rights. And I take them the media, you know, they remember. Well, occasionally, you know, the freedom of speech or the freedom of press. They don't necessarily always remember freedom of speech, but they always remember freedom of the press, unless you're on Fox News. What they always forget, that whole freedom thing when it comes to Amendment Number 2.

VOICE: That was even more overwhelming evidence that we are destined to be a bunch of socialist pigs very, very soon on the Glenn Beck program.

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."
