GLENN: The market collapsed over the, what was it, Friday? What was it down? 300 points? Things are not so bad necessarily today at this point. Hopefully they don't, but when the president gave his speech on the census jobs, I found it phenomenal. I found it absolutely incredible. It's 50, Pat, Cut 50 out of Pat's audio vault. The president comes out and says, you know, okay, so we've created, what, 400,000 something jobs and they are all temporary and they are all part time, and he expected people to go, oh, well, that's good.

PRESIDENT OBAMA: This is the fifth month in a row that we see job gains.

PAT: The audio's kind of bad.

PRESIDENT OBAMA: And while we recognize that our recovery is still in its early stages and that there are going to be ups and downs in the months ahead — things never go completely in a smooth line — this report is a sign that our economy is getting stronger by the day.

PAT: By the day.

PRESIDENT OBAMA: Now, I want to emphasize that most of the jobs this month that we're seeing in the statistics represent workers who have been hired to complete the 2010 census.

PAT: Oh.

PRESIDENT OBAMA: So these are temporary jobs that are only going to last until the fall.

PAT: Okay.

PRESIDENT OBAMA: And that won't be reflected in future jobs reports. But even if you put those temporary jobs aside, there's no doubt that we saw another month of private sector job growth.

PAT: There's no doubt.

GLENN: No doubt. Stop.

PAT: That's critical, Glenn.

GLENN: What was it, 40,000?

PAT: 41,000. Don't try to downplay it.

GLENN: No, no.

PAT: 41,000 strong.

GLENN: I'm going to show you tonight on television, I don't have the numbers in front of me, but it's along the signs of the census 10 years ago cost us, what was it, $4 billion?

PAT: Something like that, yeah.

GLENN: And now it's $14.5...

PAT: Billion.

GLENN: So but that's.

PAT: Whatever.

GLENN: That's it.

PAT: I mean, we're counting people.

GLENN: But that's it.

PAT: What, you think that's cheap? I mean, we don't just line up for them and, 1, 2, 3 —

GLENN: Here is the

PAT: 299,988,376 — 299 million —

GLENN: Here's the latest from a socialist website.

PAT: 987?

GLENN: And I want you to — I want you to hear this. What Karl Marx wrote in the Communist Manifesto that a spectre is haunting Europe. He did so on the eve of the revolutionary eruptions that began in Italy and France in 1848 and engulfed much of the European continent: In recent days a number of media commentaries have predicted a similar eruption in social unrest of revolutionary dimensions as a result of the worsening economic crisis. These warnings are accompanied by dire predictions that Europe will suffer the return of nationalist tensions, the emergence of fascist movements, and even war. Remember, it doesn't say anything about communism's return because this is a socialist website. So it doesn't — I mean, that's a good thing. But they quote — the reason why I read this is because they are quoting sources in Europe. Writing in the Financial Times on May 24th, historian Simon Schama said, quote, far be it for me to make a dicey situation dicier but can't you smell the sulphur in the air right now? How are you not thinking we might be on the threshold of an age of rage. In Europe and America there is a distinct possibility of a long hot summer of social umbrage. Schama notes that there is often a lag time, quoting, between the onset of economic disaster and the accumulation of social fury. But after an initial period of fearful disorientation, there comes a danger of the organized mobilization of outrage, the organized mobilization of outrage. This outrage will be directed against the super rich and those seen responsible for the crisis. He writes, comparing our own plutocrats with the financiers are so memorably targeted that were targeted during the French Revolution of 1789 as rich egotists. Let's just remember, where did those rich people end up? In the guillotine.

The Observer in Europe May 30th, Will Hutton, former editor and now adviser, writes, The future of Europe is in the balance. The potential disintegration of the euro will be a first order economic and political disaster. Economically, it will plunge Europe into competitive devaluations, debt defaults, bank bailouts, frozen credit flows, trade protection and prolonged stagnation. Politically, whatever resolve there is to hold our disparate continent together, where the old enmities and suspicions are never far from the surface, will evaporate.… What will emerge will be a Europe closer to the 1930s. Fearful, stagnant and prey to vicious racist and nationalist ideologies.

Then in a German newspaper, Deutsche Welle — I'm sorry, this is a broadcaster, Deutsche Welle, Germany's international broadcaster, May 26. Return warnings made in 2008 on the impact of global economic collapse, those comments were made by UN security — sorry, UN secretary general Ban Ki moon, plus the head of the IMF, the head of the World Bank. The head of the World Bank said, I warn that there may be, quoting, social unrest. It may happen in many countries, including advanced economies. Deutsche Welle writes that these warnings are closer today, quoting, than at any other time since the current financial crisis, the worst since 1929 began. Citing the demonstrations by hundreds of thousands in Greece, it warns the same fate can engulf financially fragile European governments like Spain, Portugal, and Italy. And that nations all around the world are concerned about rising social discontent. There is a feeling among experts that the deep seated anger brewing in these countries is fermenting worldwide against the same institutions, the same people, and the failure of Global Capitalism. The risk of regime threatening instability from which the United States will not be immune is a growing crisis. This is Dennis C. Blair, the U.S. Director of National Intelligence. Deutsche Welle concludes that with comments by Marie Caillol, president of the European laboratory, blah, blah blah, blah blah, she says, this crisis is directly connected to the end of the world order as we know it since 1945 and even earlier since the European colonialization process. Therefore, the whole global fabric centered on the U.S. for 60 years, is slowly collapsing, generating turmoil of all sorts. Where does it end? She replies, war. It is as simple and as horrifying as that. They claim now that agitators are behind the wave of social unrest. There are no organizations behind this response. It's a public response, says Celente, blah, blah blah, blah blah.

What they are talking about here is, first of all, all of the people now in Europe, all of these great minds and historians are all starting to come together and say the same thing. What the socialist website doesn't point out is the role that they are playing. They are the ones, the communists and the labor unions are the ones that are sowing the seeds of discontent. You are soon now going to see a religious element come out of it, and it will be an Islamic extremist element. I don't even know why I just said that. I hope I'm wrong. Look for those who have power to gain, if the world becomes unstable. What is happening over in Europe will happen here. It is already happening. SEIU is sowing the seeds of discontent. The labor unions in California with the educational reform where it is — what was it? Defend Education Now. That is a socialist and union led protest. We are going to be pitted against each other, and what will save us is if we understand this in advance. So when they play this, we have to reach out to our police officers. We have to reach out to our teachers.


 

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.
