STU: Glenn wanted this audio. This is that number, Glenn, you were talking

about, with the millions of jobs that they're fooling with constantly. This is

an example of it. Monica Crowley is talking to Bill Press who completely

butchers the stat 25 different ways but even the correct way is not accurate.

But here's the audio.

VOICE: "Excuse me. You have a very chronically high unemployment rate. You have

a president who looked like right after the trillion dollar stimulus he checked

out on the jobs issue. When you talk about compromise, there's nothing in this

man's character or political makeup to suggest moderation."

VOICE: "You can't ignore it. You may want to ignore it."

VOICE: "He's created more than a trillion dollars to no effect."

VOICE: "He created more jobs than George Bush did in eight years."

STU: More jobs in 20 months.

GLENN: He says 2.3 million jobs created.

PAT: No, he said 3.2. That's the created or saved nonsense.

GLENN: So let's go through it. And, by the way, that contrail, definitely not a

rocket that was launched, it was a paper airplane that a whale ingested and then

shot out of its blow hole. Anyway, go ahead.

PAT: Wow, that's cool.

STU: Here's the actual numbers. 3.2 million jobs he's created since he took

office. According to the BLS Household Survey, there are 137.8 million total

workers in January of 2001 when Bush took over.

PAT: 137.1.

STU: When he left, there was 142.2 million workers. That's an increase, an

increase of 4.4 million.

PAT: 4.4 million increase.

STU: So Obama took office with that number of 142.2 million. Currently, we're at

139.1 million. That is a 3.1 million job decrease.

PAT: That sounds like less. That's a decrease in jobs.

STU: Since he was --

PAT: Since he came into office.

STU: Three million decrease versus a 4.4 million job increase.

GLENN: Where is the 3.2 million jobs

PAT: Created or saved. Add those in.

STU: Could be saved.

GLENN: Give me -- so where is the --

STU: So the stat he's trying to talk about, which he's inaccurately talking

about, is this claim by progressives that in 2010 Obama has created more jobs in

the private sector than Bush did throughout his entire eight years. To unfold

that statistic, what you have to do is ignore all of 2009. In fact, you have to

ignore every month that he's lost jobs. You just ignore those up until the

beginning of 2010. Then you start including Obama as being responsible in 2010.

And you take all of that and add it up. Now, so you take only the gains from the

Obama Administration and then you look at the gains and the losses of the Bush

Administration, and if you compare those two numbers, you still don't get there.

You have to go to the private sector instead and you also have to go to the

establishment survey instead of the household survey. So if you could just do

all of those things then you can get close to that number. But at that point

you've just twisted -- what value is there.

GLENN: Here's the thing -- there's no reason, seriously, is there more?

STU: No, you're right. There is no reason to keep going.

GLENN: There's no reason to keep going on it. There's no reason, because when we

were first starting to go into Van Jones. I've told this story before. But it's

important to repeat now. When we first started to go into Van Jones, we had so

much information on Van Jones. I have stuff that will melt your eyes on Van

Jones. But I don't know if I have it in context. I don't know if I have it

completely right. This guy's been scrubbed. Who scrubbed him? Soros. So you

don't know. And we thought do we present this or not? Pat and I both went home

and we both prayed on it and so did Joe. The next day we all came in and we all

had the same feeling. One way or another we all came to the same thing: Not

enemies of mine, enemies of his. Van Jones is an enemy of the rights of God. God

gave rights. So God will take care of it. God will take care of it. All we have

to do is stick to the facts. You don't need to argue. You don't need to bash.

Nothing. Don't go out on a limb. They will destroy themselves. And every single

time it's happened. They're destroying themselves. The media is destroying

themselves. Do you really think that MSNBC or NBC will survive this? Do you

think they'll survive it? If Obama, if this thing comes apart and sanity rules,

MSNBC and NBC are over, because they chose sides. They chose sides. Do you

really think that the American people are going to listen to someone saying, are

you kidding me? He's created more jobs and he's been better for the average

person than George Bush was when people are having a hard time finding a job,

when there's 20 million people unemployed or underemployed in this nation. At

some point the lies and the propaganda don't work. That's why they need strife

and violence. Did you see what happened in London? Did you see what's happening

in London today? They're rioting. They're burning on the campuses because

they're saying we have to raise tuition. First of all, the last thing we have to

raise is tuition. That has increased more in cost than our healthcare has. And

the government is right in with it. They're adding pressure. That's all they're

doing is adding pressure. So the last thing we need is a raise in tuition costs.

STU: What precedent do you have, though, of keeping interest rates artificially

low and loaning money to people to buy things causing a bubble? I don't

understand. What possible precedent is there for that sort of activity? Is that

not exactly that? What's happening with colleges? They give you these

ridiculously low --

GLENN: But we were asleep. We were asleep. Maybe it's just me and I'm living in

a dream world, but I don't think I am. Americans are not stupid. Please, trust

in what Thomas Jefferson said. The American people will get it wrong. But

eventually they will wake up and they'll figure it out. They're figuring it out.

And the more that these lies are put on top of each other, and on top of each

other, the more they'll be exposed. Now, so you know, people will harden their

positions. And that's the real danger. Because that's what gets people to just

kill other people. They won't even listen anymore. They just are running on

blind hatred. And we're not at that point. We are with some, but we're not at

that point with the vast, vast majority of the left or the right. We must be

different. We must know that in the end love wins and hate causes others to

kill. And we must not -- we must remain open-minded. We must keep our minds open

and nimble and understand that we don't know all the ins and outs yet. What we

used to believe two years ago, many of us no longer believe. So what are we

going to believe two years from now? I don't know. Scares the hell out of me to

think what I'm going to believe in two years from now. Look at all of us. Stu,

two years ago you would have said, correct me if I'm wrong, what you believe

today is crazy. Would you not?

STU: Yeah, at least some of it, sure.

GLENN: Not all of it. You still have the basic fundamentals of where you were.

But you would have said -- if I would have told you, Stu, you're going to

believe these things in two years, this and this and this, pick them whatever

they are, you would have said never, I'll never go down that road.

STU: Far more things are possible than I would have admitted to two years ago.

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.
