Glenn Beck: 'Freedom' Flotilla? Not so much

GLENN: Okay, we were all bothered by the mosque that is being built at Ground Zero. Pat was ready to become a temporary progressive.

PAT: Oh, absolutely not.

GLENN: And just say, I'm going to find a law to stop it from being built.

PAT: Look, we're a nation of laws. Rule of law, my friend, rule of law.

GLENN: You know what I'm talking about. Right, right.


PAT: Rule of law.

GLENN: I said unless you have any kind of evidence, you don't do that.

PAT: You don't follow the law? Huh.

GLENN: Stop, stop. What are you turning into!

PAT: That is weird.

GLENN: What are you turning into?

PAT: That is weird.

GLENN: I'm sorry, I didn't know the Clintons were here.

PAT: When you ask about following the rule of law, nothing. Nothing.

GLENN: Nothing. It just depends on what the definition of "Is" is. It's the spirit as well as the letter of the law. Now I think we could probably join here and Pat, you and I could sing Kumbayah now. Ground Zero mosque imam is linked to this anti Israel flotilla. More specifically, he is part of the group that is funding another group to help organizing the flotilla. Let's see if you can make these connections. The imam behind a proposed mosque near Ground Zero is a prominent member of a group that helps sponsor the pro Palestinian activist who clashed violently with the Israeli commandos at sea. Imam Feisal Abdul Rauf is a key figure in the Malaysian based Perdana Global Peace Organisation. That sounds good. It's got peace in the name. Perdana is the single biggest donor, $366,000,000, for the Free Gaza movement.

PAT: Hmmm.

GLENN: They are the key organizer of the six ship flotilla that tried to break Israel's blockade of the Hamas run Gaza Strip.

PAT: So he's a key figure in this global peace organization.

GLENN: Perdana. Reuters is confirming now the Free Gaza movement whose supporters include William Ayers and Bernardine Dohrn and that the biggest donation did indeed come from Perdana

Now, I suppose their argument would be, "Well, he's just part of a Global Peace Organisation." "They are only promising civilian resistance in nonviolent direct action." Uh huh. Except they are partnering with another charity, a Turkish charity with terrorist ties. Did he know that the Muslim brotherhood would also — see, you know, here's if — the enemy of my enemy is my friend? Here's where this all grows awry. No, he's not, no. The enemy's not your friend. He is most likely your enemy as well. Here's why I have said be careful, be careful. Tea parties, be careful who you get in bed with. Do they have any kind of values and principles? I was thinking about this driving in today. I heard the tea party endorsements of a few people, including the, is it the Republican that might win against Harry Reid or, you know, the tea party endorsed Republican may take it in Nevada?

PAT: I think the tea party endorsed may hurt the stronger Republican in the race and thus —

GLENN: I heard today that she may win. That's what I heard.

PAT: That the tea party person may win?

GLENN: That's what I heard on, I think it was on Fox. Maybe I misheard it.

PAT: Wow.

GLENN: Because I know I didn't hear that last week.

PAT: Yeah, a couple of days before. I haven't been following it that closely. But they were saying that the tea party person might hurt the Republican and thus Harry Reid might sneak through.

GLENN: So here is, here's what I'm — here's what I was thinking this morning: Well, it's great that the tea party is endorsing people and that's, you know, that's great that they have, you know, a power base, if you will. They are saying we may not win very much today but we will in two years because they are growing their structure, et cetera, et cetera. But what are their values and their principles? And that's why we put those in front for 9/12 project. You've got to have values and principles. What are they? These groups that are, you know, they are claiming that they are innocent, "No, we're just peace activists." Okay, hang on just a second. You're a peace activist and you're with the two founders of the Weather Underground who do not deny terrorism as a tactic. They wish they did more. They wish they did more because Saul Alinsky, the ends justify the means. Well, if you go down that road, you are going to be a terrorist. The ends don't justify the means.

So they are sitting here with known terrorists and yet they are claiming to be a peace organization. Then they get into bed with another terrorist organization. There are like four countries that say this IHH is a terrorist organization. Then you have the Muslim brotherhood. The Muslim brotherhood is the worst. Now, is this, is it possible that all of these people are just like, hey, I didn't know. Is it possible that this, what is it, Perdana Global Peace Organisation doesn't know when they are the major funder of this flotilla? That they've got terrorists on board? I mean, I find that hard to believe. And one of the major, what is it, board members, prominent member of the group is how he's described by Reuters now is the imam for the Ground Zero mosque. Okay, that's enough for me to say, hang on just a second; we need to look at your permits. With you not based on, because I don't want a mosque here. I want to know who you are. It is time for a real vetting of this group.

PAT: But they don't get one.

GLENN: I bet they don't, either. Well, they won't because the Department of Justice, they won't look.

PAT: Nope.

GLENN: Which brings you back to, why?

The question you have to answer is, is Barack Obama, A, is Barack Obama the president or is he a puppet? I've never believed in a puppet regime, never. I don't believe in the Star Chamber and the — you know, I believe in the Bilderbergers because they met this weekend. But I don't believe it's really that much of a stretch to figure out what they are talking about. You know, we don't have the records but, yeah? And, you don't have a record of a lot of things that are private. I don't think it's a stretch to figure out what they were talking about this weekend. They were talking about the destruction of the Euro, is America going to survive, what is the rest of the world going to look like, et cetera, et cetera. And if you listen to the people who are in that, if you listen to their words outside of that meeting, you know where they stand.

Here's — you don't need the Star Chamber, but when it comes to this president, you have to ask yourself, is he the guy. Or is it based in the Center For American Progress with George Soros? Is he the guy? That's the first question. Did he design all of this? Because I don't think so. I mean, we could show you the evidence that this stuff has been in the works since the early 1990s. He was selected before he was elected. And those are the words of Jeremiah Wright — or no, sorry, Louis Farrakhan. I think he might be — that may be the only thing I've ever heard from Louis Farrakhan that I may agree with. You could at least make the case.

The second question you have to believe — or you have to answer is which side — can you —

PAT: Sorry.

GLENN: Which side is he on? Is he a guy who believes like Van Jones or is he a guy who's more like Bill Clinton? They've cobbled together this coalition of radicals, of quite honestly Bill Ayers, terrorist. Jim Jones? Terrorist. They've cobbled together this coalition. Where does Barack Obama stand?

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.
