Glenn Beck: Arlen Specter continues to suck

Protestor Interrupts Spector Town Hall Meeting

GLENN: 888 727 BECK. Earlier today Arlen Specter had a healthcare event and it was wonderful. Stu I'm trying to do Pat's Arlen Specter.

GLENN: Yeah, do your little, that there was a little confrontation there, Pat.

PAT: Well, there was a little confrontation (mumbling).

GLENN: How long did it take you to get Arlen Specter down like that?

PAT: About 15 seconds, Glenn. (Mumbling). Just put your tongue way back in your mouth.

GLENN: Hang on a second.

PAT: Then you kind of make your mouth big and fat.

GLENN: It really doesn't sound like doesn't sound like it. It doesn't work.

PAT: Then you need a little bit of rasp in your voice. And you know that he's... (mumbling).

STU: Interesting.

GLENN: Here we go. Here's a little bit from the town hall.

STU: Yeah, we should explain. There's a town hall meeting. There is a guy that rises up. He is against Obamacare and he's getting pretty fired up here and as you'll hear, there's a little bit of a confrontation with another person who apparently is for Obamacare, tries to stop him from speaking and then a confrontation ensues from there.

GLENN: Okay. Here we go.

SPECTER: You want to be let out of here, you're welcome to go. Now wait a minute, now wait a minute. Now wait a minute. Now wait a minute. Wait, wait a minute. Wait a minute.

VOICE: I have right to

SPECTER: Wait a minute. Wait a minute. He has a right to leave. He is right. Wait a minute, wait a minute.

GLENN: I mean, so far Arlen Specter has made a very good point so far. He has really... "Wait a minute, wait a minute."

PAT: Wait a minute action wait a minute.

GLENN: I don't understand. Is he saying he has a constitutional right to leave? So in other words he is saying I'm not holding you hostage? Is that what he's saying?

STU: Yeah. And he's saying if there's a minute, you should wait through it.

GLENN: All right. Go ahead.

SPECTER: Wait a minute. You want to leave? Leave.

Glenn Beck's Common Sense

Available in book stores nationwide...

VOICE: I am going to speak my mind before I leave because your people told me I could. I called your office and I was told I could have the mic to speak. And then I was lied to because I came prepared to speak and instead you wouldn't let anybody speak. You handed out, what, 30 cards? Well, I got news for you. You and your cronies in the government do this kind of stuff all the time. Well... (applause)... I don't care, I don't care how much, I'm not a lobbyist with all kind of money to stuff it in your pocket so that you can cheat the citizens of this country. So I'll leave. And you can do whatever the hell you please to do. One day God's going to stand before you and he's going to judge you.

PAT: It should be the other way around.

VOICE: Your cronies up on the hill.

GLENN: Hold on a second. There's a little controversy brewing in the studio. Wait a minute, wait a minute, wait a minute. Wait a minute, wait a minute, wait a minute. Wait a minute, wait a minute, wait a minute. There's a controversy.

STU: What's the

GLENN: There's a controversy here.

STU: People can call in now.

GLENN: What's the controversy?

PAT: I'm thinking that the guy is going to stand that Specter will stand before God, not the other way around.

GLENN: I'm sorry. Wait a minute, wait a minute, wait a minute, wait, just wait a minute. Wait a minute. Wait a minute. I believe you don't understand who Arlen Specter is.

STU: Well, I just want to say that

GLENN: Wait a minute, wait a minute, wait a minute. Barack Obama may only have planet like powers like his own gravitational field, but Arlen Specter, when he gets up, the Lord will say, "Oh, Arlen, it's not, I didn't realize oh, you're back. I here, I think this is your seat. I've just been keeping it warm." Now, can we not at least come together on things like that, that the government, the servants, if you will, are truly the master?

STU: Sure, I think so.

GLENN: Okay.

STU: If you don't mind, I'm just going to leave here and go to the bathroom.

GLENN: No, wait a minute, wait a minute, wait a minute. Wait a minute, wait a minute, wait a minute.

STU: I have to go.

GLENN: He has a constitutional right to go to the bathroom.

STU: I know, I'm just going to tinkle and I just would like to

GLENN: Wait a minute. You have a constitutional right to tinkle.

STU: Okay, I appreciate you

GLENN: Now, is there something you want to say before you go tinkle or you are just being

STU: Well, I was told that I was able to speak on this program.

GLENN: Who told you these things?

STU: Well, your people, they told me that on a piece of paper.

GLENN: I don't have people. I don't have people. Why are you abusing the elderly like this? Why you and your angry mob come into my studio and then want to pee all over my studio, your words, not mine, and then

STU: I didn't say that.

GLENN: And then call us liars? Why the hatred?

STU: But I'm a somewhat elderly gentleman with a piece of paper and I don't think that

GLENN: See, this is the thing they don't understand. They just don't understand in Washington. You could hear it in that man's voice. He has been so disenfranchised. "You go do whatever it is you're going to do." That was the key. This was the turning point. Remember I told you I think it was about a year or so ago. I said study the Weimar Republic. Study the Weimar Republic. What I learned in my study of the Weimar Republic is, well, two things well, three things, a lot of things, you know, like Germans, boy, they screw things up an awful lot. That's kind of a big umbrella. But also, you know, "Hey, let's not print our own money." But the most important thing I learned well, I can't say it's the most important thing. "Germans screw things up a lot" maybe the most important thing. That, and never get the Germans and the Italians together. Bad.

One of the things I learned was once the people feel like they don't make a difference and that they whatever they do won't affect their own life, that's when you get into real trouble. That's when you get into real danger. Don't you believe it. Don't you let anybody around you believe it. I'm telling you there is great hope for this country. I am telling you that there is great the Constitution will survive. Those who come against the Constitution, it will not last. The Constitution will survive. Americans will not only survive but they will thrive and they will be free. When America wakes up to God, when America wakes up and says, "Oh, I remember the order here; oh, I know we can't have everything for free; oh, there is such a thing called personal responsibility," that's when we'll say to somebody who says, wait a minute, wait a minute, wait a minute, we'll say, now we're done waiting; get the hell out.

STU: That's a very interesting point, Glenn.

GLENN: I don't know why the

STU: It's because we have a hard break here. We have a hard break. We should probably

GLENN: Is that what it is?

STU: Yeah.

PAT: Maybe you should talk a little bit longer, Glenn.

GLENN: That was such a good place to end it.

PAT: I agree. It would have been nice to end about 10 minutes ago before you started babbling. But you do have the right to continue to speak until the break is here.

STU: Well, I think the truth is, Glenn, you wanted to leave but then we needed to tell you wait a minute, wait a minute, wait a minute.

PAT: Wait a minute, wait a minute, wait a minute. You and your paid political advisors sending me down here with all kinds of cash in your pocket to start hassling me, subverting the Democratic process. I won't have it. I won't stand for it.

GLENN: Can I ask you something? If we start not shaving our armpits, women, and everybody start passing out flowers, can we start being called the mob? Is that what it takes?

Shortly after appearing on "The Glenn Beck Radio Program" last Thursday, Los Angeles-based emergency medicine specialist Dr. Simone Gold got a call saying she was fired for speaking out about the efficacy of hydroxychloroquine in a now-banned viral video.

Dr. Gold returned to the radio program Monday to detail exactly what happened, the reason the hospitals gave for her firing, and how they threatened to fire her colleagues as well if she "didn't go quietly."

"Most emergency physicians work at more than one [hospital], as I do, and I've actually been fired from both," she told Glenn. "They told me that I appeared in an embarrassing video, and therefore, I would no longer be welcome to work there ... then they said, if I didn't go quietly and I made a fuss, they would have all the doctors in the group, you know, they'd have to go and they'll get a whole new doctor group."

Dr. Gold said she does not regret speaking out about hydroxychloroquine during the controversial "White Coat Summit" news conference held in Washington, D.C., last week. A video of the news conference quickly went viral on social media before being removed by Facebook, Twitter, YouTube, and others for allegedly making false claims related to COVID-19.

"Bring it on," she said. "I want to continue to live in America. I want my children to continue to live in America. I don't want them to grow up in a place like China. When you get to a point where, not only can I not speak as a scientist, as a doctor, for what I know to be absolutely true, but you then want to cancel me and my colleagues, this is not okay. I would much rather fight than not fight ... and I want everybody to know that there are literally millions and millions of Americans who are on our side. Millions. I believe it's the majority."

Glenn then asked Dr. Gold to weigh in on the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention's new guidelines encouraging schools to reopen in the fall and the left's relentless drive to keep them closed.

"There's no actual scientific debate whatsoever if schools should open. None. There's no scientific debate. There's no serious person who thinks schools shouldn't open. Now, [through] some governors and policy makers, there's pressure being brought to bear on school districts, but there's no actual scientific debate. So it's going to come down to parents pressuring their local school districts to act in a responsible fashion."

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.
