Awkward: Four former EPA heads refuse to corroborate Obama’s global warming claims

There was a bit of an awkward moment in Wednesday’s Environment and Public Works Subcommittee hearing when Senator Jeff Sessions (R-AL) asked four former EPA officials – point blank – whether they agree with President Obama’s sensational global warming claims… and no one did.

“If you happened to see Senator Sessions on the Hill yesterday, he questioned four former EPA heads. These four EPA heads were invited to the hearing by the Democrats,” Glenn said on radio this morning. “And, of course, the Democrats want you to know the globe is heating even faster than it was 15 years ago and we're headed towards climate crisis, climate chaos. We have to take care of this right away. Right?”

In November 2012 the President claimed, “the temperature around the globe is increasing faster than was predicted, even ten years ago.” He followed that up in May 2013 by saying, “we also know that the climate is warming faster than anybody anticipated five or ten years ago.”

After quoting President Obama, Sessions asked those testifying to raise their hand if they agree with the President’s sentiment. No one did.

“So I would ask each of our former administrators if any of you agree that that’s an accurate statement on the climate. So if you do, raise your hand,” Sessions said. “Thank you, the record will reflect no one raised their hand.”

Watch the awkwardness ensue below:

“That's incredible,” Glenn said. “How is that not on the news?”

Stu was quick to point out that the media did in fact cover the hearing – just not this particular part.

“Oh, it's in the news. You were talking about the story, so I searched real quick about the EPA chiefs going to Congress,” Stu said. “And there's a story right here, EPA chiefs to Congress: Act on climate. That's the summary.”

While it probably doesn’t surprise you to hear the mainstream media didn’t report on the fact that the EPA chiefs flat out refused to corroborate the President’s claims, it is a disturbing trend.

It's good we are doing it because it doesn't seem like anyone picked that one up out of there. ‘It's not important.’ Like when the president says something like that, you're a denier for disagreeing with it,” Stu concluded. “Yet later on, years down the road when we find out it wasn't true then, you are still a denier for having opposed it in the past. [Then] the moment you realized you were right, it doesn't get recorded.”

Sen. Ted Cruz: NOBODY should be afraid of Trump's Supreme Court justice pick

Sen. Ted Cruz (R-Texas) joined Glenn Beck on the radio program Wednesday to weigh in on President Donald Trump's potential Supreme Court nominees and talk about his timely new book, "One Vote Away: How a Single Supreme Court Seat Can Change History."

Sen. Cruz argued that, while Congressional Democrats are outraged over President Trump's chance at a third court appointment, no one on either side should be afraid of a Supreme Court justice being appointed if it's done according to the founding documents. That's why it's crucial that the GOP fills the vacant seat with a true constitutionalist.

Sen. Mike Lee (R-Utah) joined Glenn Beck on the radio program Wednesday to talk about why he believes President Donald Trump will nominate Judge Amy Coney Barrett to fill the Supreme Court vacancy created by Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg's death.

Lee, a member of the Senate Judiciary Committee that will consider and vote on the nominee, also weighed in on another Supreme Court contender: Judge Barbara Lagoa. Lee said he would not be comfortable confirming Lagoa without learning more about her history as it pertains to upholding the U.S. Constitution.

This week on the Glenn Beck Podcast, Glenn spoke with Vox co-founder Matthew Yglesias about his new book, "One Billion Americans: The Case for Thinking Bigger."

Matthew and Glenn agree that, while conservatives and liberals may disagree on a lot, we're not as far apart as some make it seem. If we truly want America to continue doing great things, we must spend less time fighting amongst ourselves.

'A convenient boogeyman for misinformation artists': Why is the New York Times defending George Soros?

On the "Glenn Beck Radio Program" Tuesday, Glenn discussed the details of a recent New York Times article that claims left-wing billionaire financier George Soros "has become a convenient boogeyman for misinformation artists who have falsely claimed that he funds spontaneous Black Lives Matter protests as well as antifa, the decentralized and largely online, far-left activist network that opposes President Trump."

The Times article followed last week's bizarre Fox News segment in which former House Speaker Newt Gingrich appeared to be censored for criticizing Soros (read more here). The article also labeled Glenn a "conspiracy theorist" for his tweet supporting Gingrich.
