GLENN: Where did Stu go? Is he doing more research with Playboy magazine or

PAT: I don't know.

GLENN: You know it's amazing how it's amazing how strong the poll is to read that article. Not even to read the article. To just look at the magazine. Isn't it? And it is a I mean, it is a testimony, it is a testimony to how fragile I know my life is and I know the power of, that I just, I won't even look at it. I gave Stu handed it to me today and I said, open it to the correct page.

STU: I have the most important job on the show today.

GLENN: Yeah.

PAT: Truly.

GLENN: Isn't it amazing?

PAT: Yeah. Just can't mess with it.

GLENN: Pornography is so deadly. You get I mean, you ask, you ask your preacher, you ask your priest, you ask your minister, a psychiatrist. I bet you they will tell you the number one destructive force in marriage right now is pornography.

PAT: No question about it. There's no question.

STU: Really? You don't think over money or alcohol?

GLENN: Nope.

PAT: Uh uh. I bet you it's foreign.

STU: Really?

GLENN: Yeah. You talk to any, you talk to any religious leader or any psychiatrist that I have talked to.

PAT: They are freaked out about it.

GLENN: Freaked out. Because what happens is you open up the door. Because it is so the Internet just keeps you into it. It's no longer like it's a magazine that comes, it's now the Internet and it's just a wormhole and you just start going down into this wormhole and you don't get out and before you know it, you know, the husband is downstairs at 2:00 in the morning spending, you know, a couple of hours online and then the whole relationship with the family just changes. And before you and it just gets worse and worse and worse. It's really dangerous stuff.

STU: Nothing else, you'd be too tired to wake up. You'd have sleep problems. You'd be up at 2:00 in the morning for two hours and then your relationship would change because you'd miss breakfast.

PAT: Yeah.

STU: And other such things.

GLENN: Uh huh. Thanks for giving us that perspective, Stu.

STU: Thank you.

GLENN: Now, there is an image in here. This is a takedown piece on me in the Christmas issue, perfect for Christmas, Playboy magazine.

STU: Sure.

GLENN: And it starts with an image that I want to describe to you that says it all, I think. Describe the image.

STU: Basically what you have here is the title of the article is the triumph of the conservative. The right is rising again. The real counterculture is led by an unlikely talk show host named Glenn Beck. The picture to represent you and your audience is what appears to

GLENN: It's a double

STU: Yeah, I'm actually looking at the centerfold right now.

GLENN: It's a double page picture.

STU: Yeah, double page picture of a guy apparently potentially looks like he's looking in his basement or some almost windowless room. He is kneeling and apparently praying because there's a Bible right in front of him. Also a gun, which is weird because I swear how someone else put

GLENN: I always pray with my Bible and gun.

STU: I remember somebody, though, putting, clinging to your God and your guns.

GLENN: God and your guns.

STU: I do remember something about that at some point. Also he apparently seems to be praying to a picture of Sean Hannity, which is interesting. There is ammunition just laid out on the desk. He seems to be a former military man of sorts. He would look as, some would describe him as almost a militia member, those evil militia members.

GLENN: Is he wearing camouflage?

STU: He is not wearing camouflage but he's got sort of combat boots and that sort of thing. This's an AK 47 leaning up against the windowsill.

GLENN: I thought you said it was a windowless room.

STU: I said it was an almost windowless room if you'd listen to me, which you don't.

GLENN: I listen to you for the pictures.

STU: Thank you. Thank you. That's a compliment, I think.

GLENN: Yes.

STU: There is I'm trying to think. There's a couple of documents here I'm trying to make out. There's another picture of you, the fancy one from the CNN days of you just pointing back at the camera like look at me, I'm pointing at you. And then there's a

GLENN: Isn't there the Confederate flag on the wall?

STU: There's a giant Confederate flag on the wall. There's also a Confederate flag under the Bible that he's praying to and a sticker that says socialism is un American. A giant picture of Barack Obama as the joker hanging on the wall.

PAT: Of course.

STU: A "Don't tread on me" flag.

GLENN: It's almost like

PAT: Is there another stereotype?

STU: There is a crucifix.

PAT: Is there a NASCAR playing on TV?

STU: There is a can of Miller High Life I just noticed. So you got that.

PAT: Beer, beer, good.

STU: There seems to be, I would describe it as a bowling trophy.

PAT: Got to be bowling. Anything else is too hip, it's too cool.

STU: I would say so. I think that's about as much

GLENN: That is a double

PAT: Wow.

GLENN: That is a double page picture of who you are.

STU: That's how they see you.

GLENN: Not me. Not me. That's you.

STU: That's the audience.

GLENN: That's the audience. If you listen to me or you're a part of the rise of the right, that is who you are. Now, this is one of the worst I haven't even read it, but Stu has. This is the sloppy journalism that is happening at the lowest level, the lowest rung of journalism, Playboy magazine, to the highest level of journalism, the Washington Post, New York Times. It is so sloppy, and anybody who has ever even listened to me, if you've listened to me throughout the years, you know that I've called for George Bush's impeachment, I called for investigation into the scandals that were happening with the Republican Party, I told you that the I told you that the game that George Bush was playing with interest rates and these easy mortgages back in 200, I think 2003 or 2004, I said don't do it, it's a game, it's going to destroy us. I told you that the economy was coming unglued. I told you there was some kind of transnationalist thing going on with George Bush at the border. I mean, I've been very consistent on all of this stuff. But they don't even look at any of that. In fact, the claims that I make about socialist Marxism, et cetera, et cetera, communist, I've only charged that there was one communist in the White House, in the administration, one. I have not made a claim that there's more. Only one. Who was he?

PAT: Van Jones.

STU: Van Jones.

GLENN: What does the article say? And this is a common theme. What does the article say?

STU: Yeah, they shockingly even mention Van Jones. But later on in the article start calling you out for essentially a fake Red Scare, that you're trying to create these communists when none exist. Which is interesting because Van Jones himself, himself, called himself a communist. This is not our opinion of all of his policies put together what it equals.

GLENN: No.

STU: This is him calling him a communist.

GLENN: What is it do you have the line in the article that specifically says about, he said, you know, these socialists, he's on this Red Scare stuff, you told me about it earlier today.

STU: Yeah.

GLENN: And say it's not like there are any actual communists because that would be a problem if there were actual communists. This guy even admits it, that it would be a problem. You can't get anybody on the left to say that. You try and ask your friends. If there were actual communists, if the president appointed an actual communist, would it be a problem? They won't answer that question. Get them to answer. He said if the president had appointed an actual communist, if there were communists in the White House, that would be a problem. But there are no actual communists.

STU: Now, and I am looking for the line here. I know he said that you were making up the communists in the White House. I don't know that he said it was a problem.

GLENN: Oh, I thought you said he did.

STU: I don't think, I don't remember it's possible.

GLENN: Of course it's not a problem. You can't get it out of anybody.

PAT: Because he did appoint a communist.

STU: Right.

GLENN: And it's not me. Those are the words of Van Jones.

PAT: It's just a fact. You can't I mean

GLENN: No, it's a quote.

PAT: You are getting hammered for presenting facts, which is just unbelievable.

GLENN: Okay. So here's the really interesting thing. You know which side. You just ask your friends. You just ask your friends. What is the message that Glenn Beck is saying? What are the facts that Glenn Beck is saying? Or what are the facts that you are now saying to people? What are the facts? Don't make fun of because all that's happening, if you notice, Saturday Night Live, Jon Stewart, Playboy, South Park, all this week coming full guns a blazing on me. All they are doing is making fun of my mannerisms. That's all they're doing. None of them will actually address any of the facts. If they can distract you with mannerisms, if they can ridicule me and make me into a joke without ever addressing any of the actual facts that I bring to the table, well, then they win. Don't allow them to do this to you. Make sure you stay on the facts. And when they go, Glenn Beck, he's probably a big fat Bozo. But let me ask you this: If there were a communist that were appointed by the president and he knew he was a communist, would that be a problem?


 

Black Lives Matter protesters sent a shocking, threatening letter to businesses and non-profits in Louisville, Kentucky. The letter made a series of demands related to racial reparations, and threatened consequences if the demands weren't met, the Daily Wire reported.

On the radio program Tuesday, Glenn Beck detailed the letter's list of demands and threats, and pointed out that these tactics are strikingly similar to those we've seen during some of history's darkest chapters.

The letter, which was sent to businesses in the East Market District in downtown Louisville, listed demands such as ensuring that at least 23% of staff are black, providing race and inclusion training for all employees, displaying a written statement professing support for the BLM movement, buying at least 23% of inventory from black retailers, and submitting to external audit.

"Repercussions for non-compliance" to these demands will result in sit-ins and protests being staged outside the business, social media smear campaigns, boycotts, negative media attention, and "invasive reclamation," the letter threatened.

"So, I'm making quite a charge here, but I think it absolutely fits," Glenn said on the show. "Carl Kaufman, the representation that was used by Hitler and his machine, he convinced the youth that they were the answer, they would finally take control, and they would bring equality. [Kaufman said] the Jews controlled everything, and because of the Jews, the Germans really didn't have any freedom. Because of the Jews, they couldn't do anything. They were held down by the Jews. He said, 'We're going to have to boycott those stores. And if those stores don't comply, we will keep our storm troopers outside of the doors.' And they did. They intimidated anyone who walked into those stores. They berated anyone who walked into those stores. They beat anyone who walked into those stores."

"I told you once, that if America goes dark, we'll become the darkest nation ever in the history of the world," Glenn continued. "Guys, we're allowing our nation to go dark. And we're doing it because of fear. Everybody knows this is wrong, but who is going to stand up against it?"

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.
