GLENN: You know, I knew this was going to happen, and it's just one but I'm sure there is others. I knew this was going to happen when I said yesterday on the air and on radio and television that, you know, the signs and the costumes have played a role, but they hurt now because of, because of the media. And you say don't let the media change you. Well, let me ask you a question. This is a this is something that my daughters and I have an argument on all the time. And let me you know what? Let me give you an example using just me. Not involving anybody else. When I first started working over at CNN, I wore jeans and a sweater and T shirt almost every day, and no consultant or anybody else told me. In fact, the consultants were saying you could change the view of what, you know, a person is really like on TV, et cetera, et cetera. And, I don't know, about three months into it, four months into it, I decided to not do that and put a tie on and a jacket. I still wore the jeans and I still once in a while wear the jeans and still wore my sneakers, et cetera, et cetera. Because I just, because I don't care that much about it, quite honestly. Nobody's watching for the sex appeal in me. But the reason why I did it is because I thought to myself, you know what? I am different enough in my viewpoint that the last thing I want people to have to say, "But I don't know if I trust him" or "I don't get it" because they are thinking whether subconsciously or consciously, because I'm not wearing a tie or a suit. I don't look like somebody that you would expect.

Now, that didn't change my personality. It made it easier for people to access me. It for instance, if you see whenever I do the specials, whenever we do, you know, for instance, the special that we did on the Holocaust, the special that we've done where we've done week long specials on the president, et cetera, et cetera, I will wear a suit and lace up shoes. Because nobody is watching for my shoes. But if you're watching and I'm saying something important but I'm wearing, you know, my sneakers, people are like, well even subconsciously, "How can I take this guy seriously?" It's ridiculous because you can get somebody in the best shoes and suit and dress them up and they can be a moron. Why should you take that person seriously? But it's just the way society is. And image is important. Image is not everything, but it is important.

So when I said the signs have to go away for the tea party movement, it is time to move on and it is time to not bring signs but bring your children, I did that for a different reason on 8/28. But did you notice, did you notice that there was no discussion on the crowd except how polite they were, how normal they were? The only complaint on the crowd was how small it was. Really? Show the picture again? They had no ammunition. And so you hear the message. And that's what's key. Is your, in this case from Meg who felt and I can understand. I mean, there's believe me there's nothing worse than being singled out on national television and said, see, don't be like that. I get that. I'm sorry, Meg. I mean, but you went to a public, you know, place dressed as Betsy Ross, which again there's nothing wrong with that. But you went dressed as Betsy Ross. So there are photos of you out into circulation. And when my staff went and said and I said, you know, find, you know, find people dressed up and everything else. And I think I was I think I even asked for the Statue of Liberty picture, and I didn't see what was behind me. Or at least I didn't really look at it in advance. So I wasn't singling anyone out. You, Meg, feel singled out.



Glenn Beck baselessly tells audience not to wear costumes when 87% of his wardrobe is constitutional or patriotic garb - SEE THE DAMMING PICTURE EVIDENCE

But now here's what we're doing. We're talking about the outfit instead of the message. I'm not asking you to change anything about you and I'm not saying that you can't go, dressed as Betsy Ross or the Statue of Liberty. That would be a totalitarian state. You can do whatever you want. But if you care about the real subject, if you want to truly make a difference, it is now time that the tea party takes the next step and is not about anger, is not about outrage. Everybody gets it. Now it's time for you to be a leader. Now it is time for you to set the example so people look at you and go, well, yeah, I'm like that guy. And first impressions make all the difference. I'm sorry, but you in your life, you know if you meet somebody and they're dressed a certain way or they're just and you can't relate to that, here, you go and meet somebody and they've got those big earrings in their ears that expand the ears and so they're just, you know, they just have the big holes in their ears? Have you ever seen that? Or they are all tattooed up?

PAT: I'm thinking CEO.

GLENN: Yes. You immediately say, well, I'm not like them, I can't relate to them. Now, have you ever met somebody like that and then become friends with them and you're like, I can't believe I have to tell you the first time I met you, I thought X, Y, Z. You were most likely, if they were somebody who was pierced all up and tats all over their neck and their face and their arms and everything else, most likely the first time you met them you were like, freak. But if you had to be around them for some reason or another or you just, I don't know what happened, but you spent more time with them, chances are you then found your way to each other and you were like, it's just exactly like that's human nature. First impressions make well, for anybody who hasn't been with the tea parties and see, you are not going after the Republicans. You're not. You're not getting that. You've done that. Now you're and you've done the independence. They get it. They'll stand with you. But now you have to go after the Democrats, and the Democrats have been hypnotized by the news saying they're not like you, they're dangerous, they're racist, they're they're saying these things all the time. And what are they doing? They're playing the pictures over and over and over again. So what is more effective to be able to get the Democrats to listen to your message? Believe me I've I've been talking to liberals, my friends who are diehard liberals who will say I can't get again let me turn it around in the opposite way.

Do you know what I've done in the last year to hurt myself more than anything else? Or last two years? Making stupid statements that are off the cuff that are just from the gut, things that I said, you know, and then I go back and say, well, no, I didn't really mean it that way. That's hurt me. That's hurt the message.

PAT: And it's too late by the time you realize. Too late, I didn't mean it that way, it's too late. It's out there, it's used every time, starts every sentence that's talked about you.

GLENN: Exactly right. So what's out in the system is you're not like them. That's a lie. 70% of this nation, Republican, Democrat or independent, believe in the Constitution and the founders. Now, we don't agree necessarily on policies. They believe that spending is bad. How many good Democrats do you know that said spending is out of control? Under George W. Bush. Well, they believe that. But now they've been pushed into this area to where they're like, well, no, no, and I'm not like them. What's more effective? A sign? Or your daughter on their shoulders? What's more effective? You as Betsy Ross or you as somebody who looks just like their neighbor, not dressed as Betsy Ross? The question is, is this about you or is this about the future? Is this about you or is this about the message? Now, we're all going to disagree on how to deliver a message. I know there are tons of people in this audience that disagree with the way I deliver the message. That's fine. Just know that I have done everything I can, and there are more corners for me to cut, more edges for me to refine to be able to be a better messenger. I've told you in the past, I am a flawed guy. I am trying my hardest. I am a guy who said, no, no, not me. I'm the worst messenger you can find. But I'm doing everything I can to try to be a better messenger every day. I ask the tea parties, will you do that as well? Because you're in the driver seat now. There comes a point to where you have to recognize the position you're in.

The president, the president can wear a brown suit and a loud tie. He can. And he can tell everybody that tells him not to, shut up; I'm the president; I'll do it. But is it worth it? Is it worth it? To have his own personal style: I'm going to be the guy who's the flashy president. I'm going to wear, you know, I'm going to wear some pink earrings and I'm going to wear a big gold chain and I'm going to, I'm going to wear the loudest tie I can and I'm going to wear a brown suit every day. Well, you can. You can. But why would you? Because it hurts people. All people will be doing is, why is he wearing that tie? That is the ugliest tie I've ever seen. Wear the red tie and the blue suit even though I hate it. Because it just makes everything else invisible and people can concentrate on you and your message.

What?

STU: I was going to say I bet half the people who wear the Statue of Liberty outfits have had this exact conversation with their son or daughter: Stop dressing like that! You're never going to get a job like that! No one's going to take you seriously in an interview!

GLENN: Exactly right. Thank you, Stu. As much as I hate the blue suit and red tie thing, I hate it, I hate it, there does come there are times that it is important. You'll never get a job. Shave before the interview.

Glenn gives the latest coronavirus numbers, updating YOU on everything needed to know as Americans and officials monitor China's new COVID-19 virus:

  • 4% of Active Cases are considered serious (requiring hospitalization) Steady from 4% Yesterday, and down from 19% in February
  • Note that 12% of US Confirmed Cases do currently require Hospitalization, but that number is expected to drop toward the international average as more people are diagnosed through testing.
  • US has 65,581 Confirmed cases and 1,036 Deaths, up from 54,941 cases and 784 Deaths yesterday
  • US has 428 total officially recovered, against 1,036 official deaths. Again, US numbers are expected to normalize toward international averages as more mild cases are diagnosed.

Brother, Can You Spare $2 Trillion? https://www.cnbc.com/2020/03/25/coronavirus-stimulus-bill-updates-whats-in-the-2-trillion-relief-plan.html
  • US Senate Passes the largest economic stimulus bill in world history.
  • The Senate passes a roughly $2 trillion economic relief plan in response to the coronavirus pandemic.
  • It includes direct payments to Americans, strengthened unemployment insurance, loans to businesses small and large and increased health care resources for hospitals, states and municipalities.
  • Loans to small businesses are technically 'grants' covering payroll and rent payments. Grants do not have to be repaid.
  • It is unclear when the House will pass the legislation, though it aims to do so Friday.
Every American Will Get $1,200 in 2-3 Weeks, $2,400 plus up to 4 months Unemployment Benefits https://www.dailymail.co.uk/news/article-8152139/Every-American-four-months-unemployment-checks-earning-95-000.htm
  • Workers will get four months of unemployment pay plus additional $600 each.
  • Direct checks to Americans include 1,200 per adult making up to $75,000 a year before phasing out and ending altogether for those earning more than $99,000
  • That would result in $2,400 to a married couple making up to $150,000, with an additional $500 per child for each household.
  • 'Our expectation is within three weeks we will have direct payments out,' Treasury Secretary Steve Mnuchin said.
Cuomo Confirms What Introverts Have Long Known: Social Distancing Works https://www.scmp.com/news/china/article/3077011/coronavirus-new-york-governor-andrew-cuomo-says-early-signs-show-social
  • Stringent density control measures may be working to contain the coronavirus in New York state, the epicenter of COVID-19 outbreak in the US, as the rate of hospitalization shows early signs of abating, Governor Andrew Cuomo said on Wednesday.
  • New York, which has 19 million residents and nearly 31,000 infections, now accounts for 56 per cent of the confirmed cases in the country and more than 7 percent of the world's total.
  • Cuomo had ordered all but essential businesses to shutter by Sunday evening and residents to limit their outdoor activities and practice social distancing, effectively putting the state on pause.
  • On Tuesday, the number of hospitalized patients had doubled every 4.7 days, slowing from the rate of every 3.4 days on Monday and every two days on Sunday, Cuomo said at his daily coronavirus briefing.
  • "This is a very positive sign," he said. "The arrows are heading into the right direction."
Were the Beads Worth It? Mardi Gras Gets Blame for Big Easy Outbreak https://news.trust.org/item/20200325200808-oc1ie
  • "Mardi Gras was the perfect storm, it provided the perfect conditions for the spread of this virus," said Dr. Rebekah Gee, who heads up Louisiana State University's health care services division.
  • She noted that Fat Tuesday fell on Feb. 25, when the virus was already in the United States but before the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention and national leaders had raised the alarm with the American public.
  • "New Orleans had its normal level of celebration, which involved people congregating in large crowds and some 1.4 million tourists," Gee said. "We shared drink cups. We shared each other's space in the crowds. People were in close contact with catching beads. It is now clear that people also caught coronavirus."
  • New Orleans is on track to become the next coronavirus epicenter in the United States, dimming hopes that less densely populated and warmer-climate cities would escape the worst of the pandemic, and that summer month could see it wane.
  • Authorities have warned the number of cases in New Orleans could overwhelm its hospitals by April 4.
  • New Orleans is the biggest city in Louisiana, the state with the third-highest caseload of coronavirus in the United States on a per capita basis.
  • The growth rate in Louisiana tops all others, according to a University of Louisiana at Lafayette analysis of global data, with the number of cases rising by 30% in the 24 hours before noon on Wednesday.
  • On Tuesday, U.S. President Donald Trump issued a major federal disaster declaration for the state, freeing federal funds and resources.
US Military Officially On No-Travel Lockdown https://news.trust.org/item/20200325203242-zgoc4
  • Defense Secretary Mark Esper has issued a "stop all movement" order to the U.S. military halting travel and movement abroad for up to 60 days in an effort to limit the spread of the coronavirus through the ranks.
  • The measure is by far the Defense Department's most sweeping to date and will affect forces around the world.
  • Esper said in an interview that the order applied to all U.S. troops, civilian personnel and families, but noted that there would be some exceptions.
  • "The purpose is to make sure that we're not bringing the virus back home, infecting others, that we're not spreading it around the military," Esper said.
  • The order does include personnel who were to have been scheduled to be formally discharged from the Military in April or May.
  • Esper said one exception to the order would be the drawdown underway in Afghanistan, which will continue.
For The Best Darn Facemask In The Whole Wide World... https://www.foxnews.com/us/mypillow-other-us-companies-making-face-masks-to-meet-coronavirus-shortages
  • In Minnesota, the MyPillow company is refocusing 75 percent of its production to face masks for health care workers.
  • "We have the capacity to make a lot of things at big rates and we're going to be going hopefully from 10,000 units a day to 50,000 units a day in a very short period of time," CEO Mike Lindell told FOX 9 of Minneapolis-St. Paul.
  • The masks will go to hospitals in Minnesota as well as other states, he said. "Whatever it takes."
  • MyPillow worked with the Trump administration to get the proper design, Lindell told local Fox News 9.
  • Lindell joins literally hundreds of other companies in the US who have heeded the call of the Trump Administration to covert production to respirators, masks, ventilators, gowns and other needed medical equipment.
Further Evidence that COVID-19 Is Seasonal and May Spread Less in Summer Months https://news.yahoo.com/coronavirus-could-become-seasonal-top-us-scientist-001146451.html
  • There is a strong chance the new coronavirus could return in seasonal cycles, a senior US scientist said Wednesday, underscoring the urgent need to find a vaccine and effective treatments.
  • Anthony Fauci, who leads research into infectious diseases at the National Institutes of Health, told a briefing the virus was beginning to take root in the southern hemisphere, where winter is on its way.
  • "What we're starting to see now... in southern Africa and in the southern hemisphere countries, is that we're having cases that are appearing as they go into their winter season," he said.
  • "And if, in fact, they have a substantial outbreak, it will be inevitable that we need to be prepared that we'll get a cycle around the second time," Fauci said, referring to a 2nd cycle in the US late next fall in November or December.
  • "It totally emphasizes the need to do what we're doing in developing a vaccine, testing it quickly and trying to get it ready so that we'll have a vaccine available for that next cycle."
  • Fauci's comments suggesting the virus does better in colder weather than it does in hot and humid conditions follows a recent Chinese research paper -- still preliminary and awaiting peer-review -- that reached the same conclusion.

America Loses 500,000 Millionaires to COVID-19 - Bernie Sanders Elated https://www.msn.com/en-us/finance/markets/america-e2-80-99s-millionaire-ranks-shrink-by-500000-in-record-time/ar-BB11DrqN
  • At the close of 2019, there were an unprecedented 11 million American millionaires, a reflection of the longest bull market in history thanks to ultra-low interest rates and tax cuts.
  • Fast forward just a few months and it's a starkly different picture. The number of households in the U.S. above that threshold has dropped by at least 500,000 as of Friday, according to research firm Spectrem Group.
  • The tandem financial and health crises wrought by COVID-19 have disproportionately eroded the fortunes of the wealthy, who are more likely to own equities than the overall population.
  • At the end of 2019, the top 1% of households owned 53.5% of equities and mutual fund shares, according to Federal Reserve statistics.
  • The losses affected the rich at every level, from the mass affluent to those worth more than $25 million, according to the report. The wealth destruction at the very top has been especially steep, with the top 1% of households losing over $7.9 Trillion in wealth so far in 2020.
50% of Americans Living Under Shelter In Place or Home Quarantine Orders https://www.washingtonexaminer.com/news/more-than-half-of-us-population-will-be-under-orders-to-stay-home-by-midweek
  • The majority of the public will be ordered to stay home in the coming days as the coronavirus pandemic sweeps the nation.
  • A total of 13 states and at least 16 municipalities have enacted measures to keep residents inside their homes to prevent the spread of the virus, according to CNN.
  • That number, which amounts to 148,577,262 people, or 45% of the population, is expected to grow this week as five more states and nine more municipalities institute additional measures.
  • After the new orders go into effect, a total of 176,385,537 people, or 54% of the population, will be asked to stay home.
  • Many states and cities have not named a specific date, although some, such as LA County and the State of New York, have identified April 19th as the target 'end' of the at-home quarantine orders.
Uniformed Military Personnel Set Up Make-shift Morgue Outside NYC Hospital https://nypost.com/2020/03/24/makeshift-morgue-for-coronavirus-victims-set-up-outside-nyc-hospital/
  • In a scene reminiscent of Hollywood disaster movies (and more recently China, Italy and Spain), US Military personnel have set up a tent-based morgue outside of Bellvue Hospital in NYC.
  • Two refrigerated trailers were trucked to the site at 30th Street and the FDR Drive, along with a customized RV with a printed sign labeled: "MOBILE COMMAND CENTER — MEDICAL EXAMINER."
  • A team of men wearing camouflage fatigues and face masks set up a series of white tents that form a tunnel to a larger, white tent.
  • Other men wearing jackets that identified them as members of the NYPD and the city's Office of the Chief Medical Examiner were also at the scene.
  • A source familiar with the operation said that additional refrigerated trailers would be brought to the site and that similar set-ups would be built up outside other hospitals.
  • "The plan is for them to be there and throughout the city," the source said, with as many as 6 temporary morgue locations near hospitals in New York City.
UV Rays Proven to Destroy SARS-Cov-2 Virus https://www.accuweather.com/en/health-wellness/what-infection-rates-in-iceland-and-australia-may-reveal-about-how-covid-19-could-spread-in-the-us/707057
  • The infection rate for COVID-19 is 22 times higher in Iceland as compared to Australia.
  • The research comes as scientists in Hong Kong demonstrate that SARS-CoV-2, the virus responsible for COVID-19, is easily destroyed with UV light, just like all other known Coronaviruses.
  • "Direct exposure to UV light breaks down the membrane that houses the RNA of the virus," Dr Lon Kiang, lead researcher of the study said. Without the membrane, the virus cannot attach itself to healthy cells in the human body.
  • "This was expected, but is still certainly good news," he said.
  • Researchers said the findings may indicate that the virus will have a harder time spreading during warmer summer months, when more UV light strikes surfaces, including clothing and human skin, which may contain viral particles.
  • Scientists warned against directly and intentionally exposing skin to UV lights, which can cause burns and carries other risks, such as Cancer.

The mainstream media and the left are eager to report anything negative about President Donald Trump, even if it turns out to be Chinese Communist Party propaganda and disinformation.

On "GlennTV," Glenn uncovered some of the lies China's Communist Party is peddling to its own people and the rest of the world.

Diagnosed with pneumonia and coronavirus, Rio Giardinieri, 52, was admitted to the ICU at Joe DiMaggio hospital in South Florida. After more than a week without showing any improvement, doctors told him there was nothing more they could do. Desperately ill, Giardinieri started saying his "goodbyes" to family and friends.

That's when a friend told him there was a potential "cure" for coronavirus, an anti-malaria drug called hydroxycloroquine. Though doctors at the hospital said they couldn't prescribe hydroxycloroquine, they put Giardinieri in touch with an infectious disease doctor who authorized the use. The next morning, he says he woke up feeling "absolutely perfect."

Giardinieri joined Glenn Beck on the radio program Tuesday to share his remarkable story and to weigh in on why he thinks information about this promising treatment for COVID-19 isn't being made more readily available.

"I'm not a scientist. I'm not a doctor. I can just tell you how I feel. And I know that I was not doing well. In my mind, I didn't believe I was going to be here by the morning," Giardinieri said. "I don't know what else to attribute [for recovery] but that medicine ... and it's not just me that it's worked for. There're many people this has worked for. So, you know, I certainly understand the hospital's position. They may not be too happy me telling the story. But the facts are the facts."
