Glenn Beck: Are you concerned about your freedoms?


The Overton Window, coming Tuesday, June 15

GLENN: The Overton Window, I would love to hear, now that you've had a couple of days to read it, I would love to hear what you are thinking about The Overton Window. You're going to love I think you're going to love the real villain. I think you're going to love the ending. And did you see, Stu, that who was it? Was it Mediaite that they're doing 100 part series.

STU: Yes, they are.

GLENN: They're doing a 100 part review. They're saying it's The Overton Window. If they said they said, if we were doing a 10 part interview or a 10 part review of The Overton Window, you would think it's excessive. So, we're using the The Overton Window, we're saying we're going to do a 100 part review and only do 10 and you'll think, Oh, well, that's not so bad.

STU: Clever.

GLENN: Very clever. So, I read yesterday, I think it was on Mediaite, part 4 of the 100 part series and they had all the things, they went and they started to do the treasure hunt part of the book

STU: Yeah. That was it.

GLENN: Yeah. Because I don't know if you I don't know if we've even said this, but there is at the end of the book, we tell you some of the things that are real and some of the things that are not real in the book. There are things that are in the book that are mind boggling, absolutely mind boggling. The opening scene, somebody is in a phone booth and they're calling and they are saying, wait a minute, wait a minute, I know what's going on. I have to get this information to you quickly and they're no phone booth and they're killed in the phone booth for what they are saying, but they reference something about Donald Rumsfeld. Do we happen to have that Donald Rumsfeld audio of the missing 2 trillion dollars? .

PAT: Let me see.

GLENN: $2 trillion missing. Can you imagine that? Imagine, $2 trillion missing from the Pentagon budget. We don't know where it went

STU: Yeah. Angled he was announcing that as he was ready to fight it. Like, he was announcing a new commission to fight it. He had obviously only been in office for a couple of months, but he was, like, we need to stop this waste. There's $2 trillion missing here.

GLENN: Now, you will read that in the opening scene of The Overton Window and it's just kind of, you know, Donald Rumsfeld says that there's $2 trillion that's missing and, you know, we I think I know what happened to it. At the end of the book, in the last chapter, it goes back and it explains. It shows you what's true and what's not. That's why I call this book ‘Faction’ and the first thing I think we outline is that audio or video of Donald Rumsfeld and we give you the web address and where you can find that. He said that on September 9th, 2001.

STU: Was it 9th or 10th?

GLENN: Oh. Yeah, September 10th, 2001. Do we have it?

PAT: I think so.

VOICE: He said money wasted by the military posing a serious threat.

VOICE: In fact, it could be said that it's a matter of life and death.

VOICE: Rumsfeld promised change, but the next day the world changed. And in the rush to fund the war on terror, the war on waste seems to have been forgotten.

PRESIDENT BUSH: My '03 budget calls for more than $48 million in new defense spending.

VOICE: More money for the Pentagon, when its own auditors admit cannot account for 25 percent of what it already spends.

VOICE: According to some estimates, we cannot track $2.3 trillion in transactions.

GLENN: Stop. Okay. That happened he made that statement on September 10th. Now, how do you lose $2.3 trillion? Where did I put that checkbook? $2.3 trillion. So

PAT: I mean, that's a $600 toilet seat here, a $1,200 wrench there. You know, that adds up to some real money. Pretty soon it adds up to $2.3 trillion.

GLENN: Wow. That is that is only half I'm sorry. That is what Freddie and Fannie are now going to cost you to, they say, if I can it, is 1 trillion. The entire stimulus was 1 trillion, when all was said and done.

STU: Yeah.

GLENN: I mean, 2.3 trillion, what happened to it? And that story just went away because of 9/11.

Anyway, The Overton Window, you'll love it and make sure that you give it to somebody for father's day. Dad will love it. And it is also great for your friends who don't really see it yet, you know, people like Bill O'Reilly who I'm going to be out with this weekend. We're going to be in St. Louis and Columbus. Go to GlennBecktours.com to find out information, but I gave it I gave him a copy of the book because he's one of these guys that he would just piece it together, he would get it, but, again, I think I just looks at things separately and he refuses to draw the you know, look at the data points, all of the data points and, again, this is what is happening with the American people when you say, we're headed towards spooky territory, we're headed toward a dictatorship. No, no, they'll tell you. That could never happen. That could never happen. Well, why? Well, because it’s just about oil. Well, before it was just about the car dealer or the car companies and then it was just about the banks. Now it's just about oil. It's always slowly done. You're nudged slowly.

I was frustrated because people don't see it when it happens slowly and the sins of the father coming back, that's what's happening. What are the sins of the father? The sins of the father are us not teaching our children. The sins of a father is us coddling our children, not forcing our children to work, not telling not going along with it. Really, our sins are really more of omission. We have just gone along with it. We've accepted the trophy for participation. We didn't pay attention and we said, Oh, just let along. That's got to stop. It's got to stop right now.

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.
