Arguing with Idiots Video Contest


You could win a trip to NYC to meet Glenn! Learn how...

GLENN: And let me tell you something. This is not about our generation. This is about the next generation, and the next generation in this country, they have got to know the truth. We have got to teach them about heroes. We have to teach them about the founding, and we have to teach them the facts. That's why Arguing With Idiots came out, and we put it out and it has 25 pages of fine print footnotes. 25 pages of fine print footnotes. Number one selling book in the nation, nonfiction. Dan Brown is beating us in fiction. Common Sense is its counterpart. We put that out, what, how many weeks ago? Sixteen weeks? Sixteen weeks ago we put it out. Kevin runs the publishing division for Mercury and is the co author on Arguing With Idiots. We've been working on this book for over a year. But my goal is to be able to get it into the hands of as many people as possible. This is the book that will show you how to win the arguments, and it's not an argument against the Republicans and the Democrats. It's not. It's an argument for the truth. Where that leads you in the polling booth is your own decision.

So we have several things that we're working on now to help get this book out into the hands of those who need it the most, and one of those is I mean, if you look at the difference between Common Sense, Common Sense I wrote for thinking people that don't need a lot of pictures or anything, just want the facts. There are no drawings in there except for the gerrymandering redistricts. But there's no comedy in that book. That is just, "Here, here's the meat and potatoes" for serious people who are awake and go oh, dear God. And I made it short and I made it in a paperback so you could hand it to somebody, you could use it and say, no, no, no, the Republicans and the Democrats, both did this; here it is. And you could pass it to somebody. This one we specifically designed, riddled with ADD, we specifically designed to be easy to read for everyone. The serious thinker and the person that is, you're saying, no, no, you don't understand; here are the facts. And especially the 20 somethings, college students. Jon Stewart wrote a book that was huge with college students. This is the entryway for anybody who is struggling in college.

Now, you've put a contest together, Kevin?

KEVIN: Yes.

GLENN: What is it?

KEVIN: We're lazy, as you know. So we're sick of marketing this book ourselves. So we thought we would we thought we would have other people help us market it.

GLENN: Okay.

KEVIN: So the idea here is and all the information's on GlennBeck.com. But the idea here is you create a video. So if you are an animator, it could be an animation. We sent a guy to Berkeley a couple of weeks ago to talk to Berkeley kids and see how little they know.

GLENN: It's great.

KEVIN: You can do that kind of whatever you want to do that you think gets the message of arguing out the most, explains the book, promotes the book, whatever. Put a video together. Throw it up on YouTube. Come to GlennBeck.com, you feel like

GLENN: Hang on. Did we ever do the cover idea, the different cover idea?

KEVIN: Yes.

GLENN: At the colleges? We did? Do we have that coming up?

KEVIN: We did it at Berkeley. We're going to do it at a few more places. We want to get some

GLENN: I don't want to tell you what it is, but it's fantastic.

KEVIN: So whatever you can think of creatively to do as sort of a video format and, of course, there's 1500 pages of rules. So I would say crimes are not a good idea. I would say nudity is not a good idea. Yes, Stu?

STU: What? No, I didn't say that out

GLENN: Read the rules, Stu.

STU: Oh, okay.

KEVIN: So you create your video, throw it up on YouTube, fill out the form where you basically tell us where it is. Then we're going to judge them all and then we're going to pick our favorite ten videos. We're going to put them up on GlennBeck.com in about a week or so. And from that point your whole job is, if you're one of the ten finalists, your whole job is to promote your video. So this

GLENN: So wait a minute. How come it has to go through a gatekeeper like us? How doesn't it just let the people decide? Why are you so against

KEVIN: We hate democracy.

GLENN: Oh, okay. Good, I just wanted to know.

KEVIN: So at that point it actually and this was the hardest thing explaining to people of how this contest is different. It actually has no it does not matter how good your video is at this point if you are one of the ten finalists. It only matters how well you can promote your videos. You get to see what it's like in our shoes. It doesn't matter if the book's good or not. It's how you promote the book. So if you get your video linked from Drudge, you get yourself on the Today, whatever you can do to promote your video. Whoever has the most hits of their video according to YouTube by the deadline date, which is all again in the rules, will be the winner and you'll come and

STU: What's the prize, Kevin?

KEVIN: Well, Stu, I'm glad you asked. The prize is a trip for two to lovely Manhattan.

STU: Lovely Manhattan!

KEVIN: Where you'll dine at Glenn Beck's favorite New York City restaurant.

STU: Yummy.

KEVIN: You'll watch the radio show.

STU: Radio!

KEVIN: You'll take cabs.

STU: Cars! We won't pay for the cabs.

KEVIN: Walk the streets.

STU: You'll be using your own cash, your credit cards.

GLENN: You are making them to be a streetwalker?

STU: Apparently you'll have other duties you'll be doing at night to earn your keep.

GLENN: ACORN. We're in bed with ACORN now apparently. And then you come and watch the TV show. So you get to spend the day with us. You know, I'm looking for creative people, quite honestly. There are many reasons why we do things we do. I'm looking for very creative people. You get this video out, you get it into the colleges, you get it into the hands of 20 somethings with the best video you can make on YouTube and I'd love to meet you. You can find out all the details at GlennBeck.com. By the way, the book is available at bookstores everywhere, coast to coast. Arguing With Idiots.

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.
