Glenn Beck: Punished by a Baby

GLENN: Here's Barack Obama which I believe is your dream house, and I'll explain in a second. Here's your dream house, Barack Obama, talking about birth control.

SENATOR OBAMA: I've got two daughters, 9 years old and 6 years old. I'm going to teach them first of all about values and morals but if they make a mistake, I don't want them punished with a baby. I don't want them punished with an STD at the age of 16, you know. So it doesn't make sense.

GLENN: Hang on just a second. He doesn't -- Stu, he doesn't want you punished with herpes.

STU: No, definitely not, HIV. Chlamydia?

GLENN: Or a baby. Chlamydia or a baby, he doesn't want those punishments coming toward you.

STU: You know, I routinely will send out gift baskets to people when they get chlamydia.

GLENN: But they do it intentionally. They're like, we're trying to get chlamydia. You look at them and like, you're so cute, we've been out all weekend trying to get chlamydia. Eventually you come over and it becomes kind of awkward and the guy is like, trying to get chlamydia used to be fun. Now she's up with her legs in the air all the time and it's a nightmare.

STU: You want to start your own little --

GLENN: Honey, I think I'm really close to getting chlamydia. Now would be the time.

STU: Their own little family of STDs and I think that's the dream of every family.

GLENN: Sure you do. But hate to get yourself punished, trying to get chlamydia, have yourself punished with a baby. You know what I mean? What a nightmare that would be.

Okay. A lot of people will say, well, he just misspoke; you know what he means. Yes, I do know what he means. And let's just be very clear. I can only give people in Washington or want to be in Washington so many opportunities to misspeak. By the way, look it up. It's in the thesaurus. By the way, look it up. Misspeak, another word, interchangeable according to the thesaurus is lie. So I can only give you so many chances of misspeaking before I start thinking, there might be something more to this.

He doesn't want his child to be punished with a baby. This tells you all kinds of things. First of all, clear stance on abortion. What is his stance on abortion? I'm just assuming that he's wildly pro choice, but is he one of these politicians who says, "I want to make it rare but I want to make it safe. I want to make sure -- I want to do everything I can, you know, that jeez, if they happen to get pregnant..."

SENATOR OBAMA: I don't want them punished with a baby.

GLENN: I want to make it -- I value life.

SENATOR OBAMA: I don't want them punished with a baby.

GLENN: But I don't want them punished with a baby. Yes, Stu.

STU: Just so you are aware, I want to make sure you understand.

GLENN: Yes.

STU: Barack Obama's abortion platform.

GLENN: How accurate is my description?

STU: Well, he did support Roe versus Wade but he released this quote on the Supreme Court decision upholding the partial birth abortion ban.

GLENN: The partial birth abortion ban.

STU: Yeah.

GLENN: This is where you can be birthed to the head, just keep the head inside of the mother and then kill the baby.

STU: He strongly disagreed with today's Supreme Court ruling, end quote.

GLENN: Against partial birth abortion.

STU: Yeah.

GLENN: Well, because he doesn't --

SENATOR OBAMA: I don't want them punished with a baby.

GLENN: He doesn't want them punished with a baby. You know what I mean? So -- does he anywhere say, does he say that he wants to make it rare but safe?

STU: I don't see that yet. We're still looking.

GLENN: Well, then God bless him. At least -- then maybe you don't need this. Maybe you don't need this lesson of "Punished with a baby" because he's never saying, "But I want to make it rare." This is the amazing thing. This is what you can -- this is what you need to take away from Barack Obama on this. What you learned from Barack Obama in, you know, I don't want them punished with a baby is this: That he sees children as a punishment, not for everybody but for some children are a punishment. Others, children is a blessing. A child is a blessing because you are trying. You are trying to avoid it. So it's a punishment. The point is the baby becomes an "It." The baby is just it. So he doesn't see the sanctity of life is something that can punish you or bless you. I'm sorry but that's an abomination in the eyes of God as I would see it. I can't imagine how a baby could punish you. A baby is a gift at all times. A baby is the closest to perfection that we get at all times. We should be striving to be more like that innocent child than trying to just say, I don't want them to be punished by a baby.

So he doesn't understand. He sees it as either/or. Could be a blessing, could be a punishment. That should tell you something about the sanctity of life.

But it goes deeper than this. It goes into punishment. What is the problem with America? What is the phrase that I've been saying that we should be saying to each other more often, we should be saying out loud? You should be screaming it, and I know you do, screaming it at your television all the time when you watch the news: "Too bad! Sucks to be you! Guess you shouldn't have done that one, huh? Wow, who could have seen this mistake." Well, he's got a 9-year-old and he doesn't want them punished by a baby if they make a mistake. You know what? A baby is a natural consequence of your actions of having sex. It is a natural consequence. It is why your sex organs were created -- I'm sorry -- evolved from an extra foot, and it evolved into a sex organ. It wasn't there for your pleasure. Maybe that's what you should teach your kids. That our sex organs are not for pleasure. Oh, sure, that's part of it. There's a drive in you that says, yeah, that feels good. But the reason why you feel good is so -- it was God's insurance of making sure you do it and have more babies! Not so God could punish you but he could bless you and he could bless the Earth with having more children. It's a natural consequence. But see, the part of this that people like Obama don't understand is consequence.

Consequence is not necessarily a bad thing. For instance, if my child just so happens to put their hand on a hot stove, "I don't want them punished by a burn." Neither do I. I don't want my son or daughter punished by a burn by any stretch of the imagination. But do I think when they put their hand on the stove it's all a bad thing? No. It hurts them. It hurts me as I'm trying to heal their hand. It hurts me and it hurts them a lot. But you know what? They never put their hand there again.

Now, back to "I don't want them punished by a baby." Not only does it show you his stance on life but it also should show you where he stands on consequence. What do you think he's going to do with Citigroup? Citigroup, you failed. Wow, you made some bad investments. Sucks to be you. Too bad. Taxpayers not going to bail you out. Bear Stearns, wow, didn't work out for you, did it? Sucks to be you. Wow. You have how much in mortgage and you make what per month? Really? Looking like a bad idea to sign that loan, huh? Sucks to be you. The only ones that should be bailed out were the ones that were duped, the ones that were lied to. The consumers that were raped, hmmm. We should not bail our children out if they're punished by a baby. We should have a conversation with our kids beforehand. The natural consequence of having sex is having a baby. Do you think you're capable of having a baby at your age? No. Would you want -- do you know what your life, how your life will change? No.

Let me explain how your life will change and let me also explain before you even think about having sex that if you become pregnant and you're 12, you are not going to raise that baby because now we've made two mistakes. Now we've gotten pregnant and we've decided to wreck that child's chances by having them raised by a 12-year-old or a 15-year-old or a 16-year-old. No. So the family believes in not abortion but adoption because a baby is not a punishment. A baby is a blessing. Not to you. It's a natural consequence of having sex. But that baby is a blessing to somebody, and somebody will bless that baby for your mistake, period.

Now, which, which role is going to help the child more? A father and mother that understand and are not going to condemn their child to a life of hell because they made a mistake, a gigantic significant one, maybe hopefully the biggest one they will ever make in their life, one that will sit down and teach them that there are consequences to mistakes, and the bigger the mistake, the bigger the consequence and the more it's going to hurt. "You have this baby and you give it up, it's going to hurt for a very long time." How do I know it? Because the teenager is the reason I have my son Raphe. My son we prayed for for years trying to -- oh, yeah, she had her legs up and we were taking her temperature and everything else. It was ugly. Couldn't get pregnant, couldn't get pregnant, couldn't even get chlamydia. And a teenager made a mistake, and her mother was smart enough to say, you can't, you can't destroy this child's life, and she was smart enough to say, "I can't have an abortion, I can't kill this child" and so she did the hardest thing she probably will ever do. She allowed that baby to be blessed by others and allowed that baby to bless others. She wasn't -- what did Barack say again, Dan? I'm sorry.

SENATOR OBAMA: I don't want them punished with a baby.

GLENN: She wasn't punished with a baby. We were all blessed by a baby. Her blessing will take time, but in time she will realize she went through the hardest thing in her life and she survived. In time she will grow from the experience in a positive way. You are just witnessed yet another piece that shows you the inside, the inside workings of Barack Obama. You have to do a little math on it. It's not about, you know, I don't want you, you know, being -- what again, Dan?

SENATOR OBAMA: I don't want them punished with a baby.

GLENN: Yeah, don't want you punished by a baby. Has less to do with that and more to do with, let's give everybody trophies. Let's not have anybody feeling consequence. Let's not have anybody have any problems in the world. When those problems, when those punishments, to use his language, are natural. Let's stop nature.

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.
