GLENN: The NEA has just fired Yosi Sergant yet again. They have put the wrong head on the wall. The NEA, Deutsche any of the audio in your audio vault here, Pat, of the NEA? Dan, do you?

PAT: I think Dan has it.

GLENN: The audio from the NEA, when we first brought it up. Stu, see if you can do a search for NEA and me. I don't even know when it was, two months ago maybe, a month and a half ago when I was bringing up the NEA. It wasn't even that long ago. Four, five weeks ago? I don't even have a concept of time anymore. It was about, it was I think the same week that we did the Rockefeller Plaza stuff where they then claimed that I wanted people to blow up Rockefeller Plaza. I work in Rockefeller Plaza! I have always wanted to work at Rockefeller Plaza. I don't hate the art in Rockefeller Plaza. Come to my office and see the art in my office. I love the art of Rockefeller Plaza. These pinheads just cannot ‑‑ I mean, we're the dumb ones? Really? I guess concepts are just too big for them to get their arms around. Blow up art! That's all they hear.

The NEA, the NEA was having a conference call orchestrated by Yosi Sergant. On the conference call ‑‑ and we know this because somebody was on that conference call, taped it and tipped off They tipped us off. And so what happens? In the conference call they are saying look, you know, we've got to be really careful with our language here, we're trying to figure out legally how we can do all of this stuff. But listen. You know, just maybe you want to do some art that, you know, makes the president look good and the administration and, you know, push healthcare and cap and trade. Can you work on some of that art? Sixteen out of the twenty people that were on that phone call have received grants from the NEA. That's your money. When I first brought it up, oh, he's on a Hitler hunt again; oh, look at Beck; oh, we're doing propaganda now. But now, last week Yosi Sergant steps aside. Keep the pressure on, keep the pressure on. What is it, the ‑‑ this is from the ‑‑ is this the Washington Post or what is this one? No, this is Politics Daily. Politics Daily, Washington in 60 seconds. In the news, Glenn Beck can put another head on his wall. Yosi Sergant, the former communications director for the National Endowment For the Arts resigned his job yesterday. The AP reports that Beck called out Sergant for suggesting to artists on an NEA conference call various ways they can help the Obama administration's goals including healthcare reform.

Okay. First of all, I think we need to start collecting heads. Do you notice that people are saying I'm collecting scalps, I'm collecting heads? I'm doing none of them. I'm not calling for the firing of any of these people. I'm calling for an investigation. I'm calling for answers from the White House. I don't want the people at the bottom end of the spectrum of ACORN fired. I want to look at the people at the top. Let's start looking at the people at the top of the pyramid. They're the ones controlling it all. Yosi Sergant? Yosi Sergant isn't the one who did this. Do you think Yosi Sergant is a guy who was just like, yep, well, I did the whole poster and, you know, I thought maybe I could do some more with the NEA. That's not what happened. We have ties and audio evidence of the tie directly to Barack Obama's best friend, Valerie Jarrett. She, everything including Van Jones, passed through her hands. Where is anybody talking about Valerie Jarrett? And by the way, I don't think Yosi Sergant is black, is he? Did I mistakenly go after a white guy? I thought he was black. I thought I was only targeting black people. How did that happen? You know what, I ‑‑

PAT: You want to take everything back?

GLENN: I want to take everything back. It is about the system. It's about the system.

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.
