GLENN: I believe we can announce on this program that JD Hayworth's campaign is over. JD Hayworth apparently made an infomercial and I don't know how it took this long to find the infomercial, but it did. Here is a piece of the JD Hayworth infomercial from 2007.

VOICE: $80,000 in grant money and I don't have to pay it back. I'm ecstatic about it.

VOICE: We award this grant for up to $1.3 million back.

VOICE: How much money? I mean, did I hear right, billions?

VOICE: Hundreds of billions.

VOICE: Hundreds of billions of dollars. Wow. Forgive me if I sound like a skeptic because that's a lot of money. Probably too good to be true. Congressman, is it for real?

HAYWORTH: It is for real.

PAT: JD Hayworth.

HAYWORTH: I understand the skepticism in part because President Reagan used to say the greatest contradiction ever uttered was I'm from the government and I'm here to help, but I'm telling you this is really true. About 25 years ago a decision made to get money in the hands of the American people. And though we talk about it as if it's free money, let me remind you. It's not free money. It's your money. It's money you've already surrendered to the government in terms —

GLENN: Stop just a second. That's great. So that company that got the $1.5 million loan —

PAT: That was all his.

GLENN: That was all their money.

PAT: Yeah. Isn't that great?

GLENN: Wow. I didn't know that.

PAT: Yeah, yeah.

GLENN: I thought when I first heard this audio, and there's video that goes with it. I thought it was a parody. I thought it was a spoof.

PAT: No.

GLENN: I thought it was somebody saying, you know, making fun of the system that we have set up. No, no, no.

PAT: No.

GLENN: This is JD Hayworth waving the flag and saying, hey, get that money; it's not free; it's yours.

PAT: It's very Matthew Lesko esque?

GLENN: Oh, my gosh.

STU: Yeah.

GLENN: This guy's done.

STU: It goes on, though. I think it actually gets worse from there.

GLENN: How could it possibly —

STU: Well, because at least at this point he's sort of making a justification of something.

GLENN: Oh, boy. Let it roll.

PAT: Okay. We're going to have to go back to the beginning.

GLENN: Well, that's okay.



JD Hayworth Infomercial: Free money! You never have to pay it back!

VOICE: $80,000 in grant money and I don't have to pay it back. So I'm ecstatic about it.

PAT: Who wouldn't be.

VOICE: This grant for up to $1.3 million, greatest news about that is we don't have to pay it back.

PAT: Great news. Great news.

VOICE: How much money? Did I hear right, billions?

VOICE: Hundreds of billions.

VOICE: Hundreds of billions of dollars? Wow. Forgive me if I sound like a skeptic, but that's a lot of money. Sounds too good to be true. Congressman, is it for real?

HAYWORTH: It is for real. Now, I understand the skepticism in part because President Reagan used to say the greatest contradiction ever uttered was I'm from the government and I'm here to help. But I'm telling you, this is really true. About 25 years ago a decision made to get money in the hands of the American people.

PAT: All right.

HAYWORTH: And though we talk about it as if it's free money, let me remind you.

GLENN: Yes, please.

HAYWORTH: It's not free money.

GLENN: No.

HAYWORTH: It's your money.

GLENN: It's your money.

HAYWORTH: It's money you've already surrendered to the government in terms of taxation.

PAT: It's mine.

HAYWORTH: But the government has a chance and you have a chance to make an investment in yourself and, in fact, improve not only your personal economic situation but put people to work and really help rebuild the economy on your block, in your neighborhood, happening on Main Street instead of Wall Street.

STU: That's Obama's argument for the stimulus package.

VOICE: Like you've always dreamed of. National grants conferences can help you to be your own boss.

PAT: I love these.

VOICE: Send your kids to the best schools. Buy your first home. Renovate your house.

GLENN: Unbelievable.

VOICE: Become an investor. Build wealth.

PAT: I mean, we might as well vote for Don Lapre.

VOICE: — that made $30 to $40 profit in a week and I placed those ads in around 1,000 other newspapers around the country.

GLENN: 1,000 other newspapers. That's how I did it.

VOICE: That's how I generated over $50,000 a week out of my one bedroom apartment. I'll show you some secrets that will make you wish I started doing it five —

GLENN: Buy a bigger apartment, wouldn't you?

PAT: Well, month after month after month, you still make $80,000! And you are still in a tiny one bedroom apartment.

GLENN: That's crazy!

PAT: Why?

GLENN: Because it's not my money. No, it's not. It's my money, not your money! Isn't that right, JD Hayworth?

PAT: Vote for me, Don Lapre. I'll get you hundreds of billions of dollars! But remember it's not the government's money; it's your money.

VOICE: Rebuild the economy day after day by just accepting your own money back from the government.

PAT: Up to $1 1/2 million is available for you to start a small business selling tiny classified ads out of your one bedroom apartment.

GLENN: Keep talking. It's making sense to me. Keep talking. Seriously, I — wait a minute. (Fly buzzing). Why is this guy — oh, yeah, it just landed on my face. Oh, yes. I like it when they wash their hands while landing on my face. Oh.

STU: If you listen to his argument there at the end, he is saying basically if you take money from the government to build your personal economy, it's helping the economy grow and everything.

GLENN: Stimulus, yeah.

STU: That's the stimulus program's argument.

GLENN: It is.

STU: That is Obama's argument for the stimulus package.

PAT: And he was making it back in 2007.

STU: He was! From his one bedroom apartment, he was making arguments about the stimulus.

PAT: I don't think you recover from that. As a conservative I don't think you do.

GLENN: We haven't said anything about the election in Arizona mainly because, I just don't want to get involved. If I have one on, I have to have both of them on, and we've done that in a few states and I just feel uncomfortable inserting myself in these because I don't know. You know. At the state level you know. You know, I can tell you that my gut was saying Mike Lee. I think it was my wife said to me last night. She said, are you for Mike Lee or are you for Bridgewater? And I said, you couldn't tell? And she said, no, I couldn't tell. And I'm like, that's good. I was kind of for Mike Lee but I don't even know on that.

STU: Yeah.

GLENN: I don't even know on that. And it's really up to you on the local level. We haven't inserted ourself in Arizona, quite honestly one reason is, I mean, you know where I stand on John McCain. What a nightmare that guy is. But JD Hayworth, I mean, is that all you got?

PAT: Tiny classified ads month after month after month! Just place them in newspapers all over the country!

GLENN: Where is Arizona going to go from here? Do they have another option?

PAT: They are going to go with me, JD Hayworth, to a fabulous new swimming pool and a big fat home on the beach. I can show you how. For $29.95. But wait, there's more.

STU: Has anyone heard Hayworth's explanation for this yet? Has he come up with an answer?

PAT: I haven't.

GLENN: He's going to say — I don't know,

PAT: Can he say it in the Don Lapre voice?

GLENN: Yeah. He's going to say, listen, they have been taking your money for a long time! Are you just going to let that money sit in the federal government and go to somebody else?

PAT: No!

GLENN: It's your money! That's why I've been saying take your money back! Take your money back, take your power back! And you can do it by calling me, now!

STU: That's pretty good. I almost want to call, yeah.

PAT: Yeah. Is there a 1 900 line or something I could —

GLENN: I don't know.

PAT: Because I think you could make money from that, too.

GLENN: Yes. 1 866 666 6666.

STU: I would really like to know what his explanation is because that sounds like the direction he would go.

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.
