Glenn Beck: Rawls vs. Greene

GLENN: So, we're looking at -- who is it? Al Greene that's running in --

STU: Alvin Greene.

PAT: Alvin Greene.

GLENN: Oh. Not the singer?

STU: No.

PAT: No. See, that's the mistake that apparently a lot of people are making.

GLENN: All right. So, tell this story here.

PAT: One of the local TV stations went out and interviewed some people because everybody's confused about this Alvin Greene guy. He's a person who -- am I keeping you awake?

GLENN: Yeah, you are. Can you tell the story a little more exciting than this?

PAT: Should I be quiet and let you get a little nappy?

GLENN: No. So far, the way you're telling it --

PAT: I got five words out of my mouth, you know.

GLENN: Go ahead. I'm just trying to do to you what you bring to the table for me every single day.

PAT: You have no idea what I bring to the table.

GLENN: No. Neither do the listeners, but, anyway, go ahead.

PAT: Oh, they know, my friend. So, anyway, Alvin Greene had no campaign. He literally did not one official fund racer. He didn't do one official event. There was no media, there were no advertisements. He spent no money. $10,000 to register, sign up, or whatever.

GLENN: And isn't he a criminal?

PAT: Well, he's charged with -- he's got a porn charge on his record and --

GLENN: What's a porn charge?

STU: He showed porn to an unwilling participant and asked her back to the apartment.

PAT: You know, but who among us --

STU: But who among us haven't --

GLENN: An unwilling participant? What kind of a great move that is. Let me tie you to the chair. Let's watch porn and then we can go back to my place?

STU: There was no tieing. He just asked nicely, I'm sure. He seemed like quite a gentleman.

PAT: He seems like a very confused, nice guy, and so now the media --

GLENN: Where did he get $10,000 to --

PAT: Nobody knows. He said it was his and --

GLENN: A guy who --

PAT: Life savings.

GLENN: -- offered an evening of porn --

STU: We don't know it was the whole evening.

GLENN: A few minutes of porn.

STU: Yeah.

GLENN: Is usually not the guy who's got, like, $10,000 lying around.

STU: That's a broad generalization and I would say --

GLENN: But it is my experience that guys like this, to quote the President -- go ahead.

PAT: So, James Clyburn, the powers that be in South Carolina are all hacked off because this guy has no chance of beating Dement. It's not like the other guy had any chance.


PAT: So, anyway, the TV station went out and they interviewed at least one of these people to find out, why did you vote for Alvin Greene and here's what one of them said.

VOICE: I voted for him because his name sounded like the singer and I had never heard of Vic Rawl.

PAT: His name sounded like the singer, Al Green from the Seventies, and she had never heard of Vic Rawl.

GLENN: Is it Lou Rawls?

PAT: That's another singer.

GLENN: That's a tough contest. Al Green -- not for me. It's Al Green over Lou Rawls.

PAT: Oh, you've to be kidding.


GLENN: No. Yeah. It's Al Green over Lou Rawls.

PAT: Oh, no. It's Lou Rawls over Al Green every time.


PAT: Every day.

GLENN: Give me a little Al Green.

PAT: This is Al Green. (Music playing.)

GLENN: Oh, yeah. Oh, I want this guy in Congress. This guy -- can you tell me -- don't you want somebody who's walking up to the podium -- you'll be, like, all right, $130 trillion debt, whatever. Over Lou Rawls?

PAT: Lou Rawls. (Music playing.) Now, this is smooth. This --

GLENN: This is you trapped in your house with your mother's radio.

PAT: What?

GLENN: That's what it is.

PAT: My mother would never have listened to Lou Rawls. She was a --

GLENN: She's that unhip?

PAT: Yeah. She was an Eddie Arnold, Jim Reeves type of chick.

GLENN: Whoa, whoa!

PAT: Yeah. So --

GLENN: How did they even let you in through the tunnel of New York?

PAT: I don't know. I don't know.

GLENN: Wow. No. I mean, Lou Rawls isn't bad. I'm saying if I had to vote, I would be, like --

PAT: You would go Al Green?

GLENN: Yeah. Of course I would.

PAT: So, you understand how this guy got elected?

STU: After that evidence, I think I would go Al Green, too.

PAT: Seriously? Sarah, Al Green or Lou Rawls?

SARAH: No contest, Al Green.

GLENN: You grew up in some type of prison-like atmosphere where Lou Rawls turned out -- I mean, Lou Rawls was good and Al Green turned out to be bad. You're a psycho. You're a danger to society and yourself.

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.
