Why won't this cheese melt?

Seriously, this seems kind of bizarre. On radio this morning, Glenn brought in a pack of Kraft cheese singles for a little science experiment. It turns out the cheese burns when held up to an open flame. It doesn't melt. Odd.


Glenn has become very concerned with what he is putting into his body in recent months, so the whole thing triggered a debate about processed foods.

Below is a rough transcript of this segment:

STU: You seem to be shuffling a deck of cheese as you're making this comment. I couldn't help, but notice. Strange thing to be doing.

GLENN: I have this type of cheese here to make a point with you.

STU: Oh, really?


STU: Can't wait to hear it.

GLENN: Do you like Kraft American cheese?

STU: I absolutely do.

GLENN: So do I. So do I. My wife pointed something out. She pointed something out to me this morning on her Facebook page. She said --

STU: She didn't just roll over and tell you about it.

GLENN: Somebody posted this on her Facebook page. I was like, holy cow. And I wanted to get your opinion on it. Because food is no big deal. Right?

STU: It's one of the biggest deals. It fuels you --

GLENN: You can put whatever you want in your body. Food is food?

STU: You know, within reason, yes.

GLENN: So no artificial preservatives. Kraft. Notice what it says on the package.

PAT: No artificial preservatives or flavors. Kraft singles American.

GLENN: American. Kraft singles American. It doesn't say American cheese. It says American.

STU: It's patriotism.

GLENN: That's right we have America.

So she posted somebody on her Facebook page, said, you know, I just wanted to point out, it doesn't really melt.

PAT: The cheese doesn't melt?

STU: No. I have melted this Kraft cheese many times.

GLENN: It just kind of burns.


PAT: Okay. Well, it's essentially made of polyester. Right?

GLENN: It's just burning. I have a lighter here.

STU: Right now it's not doing anything.

GLENN: Well, this is an American lighter.

STU: Does it say lighter on it, or does it just say American?

GLENN: It's just American. So I'm not sure it's a lighter, per se. I just thought, you know, if you can't really -- cheese should melt, shouldn't it?

STU: Well, it does melt when you cook it. They use that cheese all the time and it melts all the time. I just never have tried it over an open lighter. That's not how you use the product.

PAT: Is that how they tried to melt it?

GLENN: Yeah. They used a lighter.

PAT: Well, if you put it on the stove, it will melt.

STU: It makes a delicious grilled cheese.

GLENN: Yeah. Just a little disturbing.

STU: I don't know -- why is it a little disturbing?

GLENN: I don't know why. Just a little disturbing to me.

STU: Now, the plastic around it will melt. Should I eat that?

GLENN: No. It's just cheese.

PAT: Does it say cheese underneath the --

GLENN: In small print. A cheese product.

PAT: Oh, cheese product.

GLENN: Cheese product.

PAT: Makes it sound even tastier.

GLENN: The ingredients aren't so bad. Cheddar cheese. Milk cheese culture. Salt enzymes. Whey. Milk, milk protein concentrate, milk fat. Whey protein concentrate. Sodium citrate. Phosphate. Salt. Lactic acid. Paprika extract for color. Enzymes. Cheese culture.

I can't get enough cheese culture. Vitamin D3. And it does contain milk. So it's not so bad.

PAT: So I'm no farmer, I'm no expert on cheese, but that sounds like cheese.

GLENN: It does.

STU: And so what's the accusation here?

PAT: That it wasn't cheese.

STU: But you just read the ingredients.

GLENN: I don't know.

STU: Can I have one of those slices, by the way?

GLENN: I don't know. Just, I don't know.

STU: I'm really hungry now.

GLENN: You want two slices of cheese product?

PAT: I like they say no artificial preservatives. What kind of preservatives are they?

STU: Is salt a preservative?

GLENN: It is.

STU: Technically.

GLENN: I'm in this place in my life where food is -- I mean, you went through this, Stu. You got off all kinds of food because it was starting to skeeve you out.

STU: Yeah. Just different philosophy there.

GLENN: You thought anything natural was bad.

STU: I hate natural things. No. There's certain foods that you don't like. That you don't prefer. And so you don't eat them. But that's different than what you're going through. Thank you very much.

GLENN: Did you throw him a cheese slice?

STU: Can we have cheese slices every day? Is this part of the show now?

GLENN: No, it's not.

STU: Can we expense them if we were to bring in --


PAT: You know what the ingredient should be? Cheddar cheese.

GLENN: Thank you.

STU: You do realize that cheese is not a naturally occurring substance. Right?

PAT: You do whatever you do to the cow.

STU: That's the --

PAT: Skim some off and there it is, it's cheese.

GLENN: I don't think that's the way -- I don't think that's the way it works. That might give you blue cheese-ish a lot.

PAT: I said it would be cheese. And that's cheese.

GLENN: Remind me to never go over to his house for cheese and mushrooms.

Time after time, Americans have taken to the streets to defend our constitutional rights, whether it was our livelihood at stake -- or our lives. But, what was the point of all the civil rights movements that came before, if we're about to let the government take our rights away now?

On his Wednesday night special, Glenn Beck argued that Americans are tired of having our rights trampled by "tyrannical" leaders from state and local governments who are ignoring our unalienable rights during this pandemic.

"Our nanny state has gone too far. The men and women in office -- the ones closest to our communities, our towns, our cities -- are now taking advantage of our fear," Glenn said. "Like our brothers and sisters of the past, we need to start making the decisions that will put our destiny, and our children's destiny, back into our hands."

It took less than two months of the coronavirus tyranny to make America unrecognizable, but some Americans are fighting back, risking losing their jobs and businesses or even jail time, as they battle to take back our civil rights.

Here are just a few of their stories:

After New Jersey's Atilis Gym reopened in defiance of the governor's executive order, the Department of Health shut them down for "posing a threat to the public health." Co-owner Ian Smith says somebody sabotaged the gym's toilets with enire rolls of paper to create the public health "threat."

Oregon Salon owner, Lindsey Graham, was fined $14 thousand for reopening. She said she was visited by numerous government organizations, including Child Protective Services, in what she believes are bullying tactics straight from the governor's office.

77-year-old Michigan barber, Karl Manke, refused to close his shop even when facing arrest. "I couldn't go another 30 days without an income," he said. But when local police refused to arrest him, Gov. Gretchen Whitmer's (D) office suspending his business license instead.

Port of Seattle police officer Greg Anderson was suspended after he spoke out against enforcing what he called "tyrannical orders" imposed amid coronavirus lockdowns.

Kentucky mother-of-seven, Mary Sabbatino, found herself under investigation for alleged child abuse after breaking social distancing rules at a bank. After a social worker from child protective services determined there was no sign of abuse, he still sought to investigate why the Sabbatino's are homeschooling, and how they can give "adequate attention to that many children."

Dallas salon owner Shelley Luther was sentenced to seven days in jail after she defied the state-mandated stay-at-home orders to reopen her business.

It took less than two months of the coronavirus tyranny to make America unrecognizable. Leaders from state and local governments across the U.S. have flattened the curve of some of our most basic constitutional rights, but some Americans are fighting back — and risking jail time or losing their businesses.

On Wednesday night's GBTV special, Glenn Beck argued that we're witnessing the birth of a new civil rights movement — and it's time to build a coalition of common sense to keep America as we know it free.

On the radio program Thursday, Glenn Beck sat down with chief researcher Jason Buttrill to go over two bombshell developments that have recently come to light regarding former Vice President Joe Biden's role in the 2016 dismissal of Ukrainian Prosecutor General Viktor Shokin.

"Wow! Two huge stories dropped within about 24 hours of each other," Jason began. He went on to explain that a court ruling in Ukraine has just prompted an "actual criminal investigation against Joe Biden in Ukraine."

This stunning development coincided with the release of leaked phone conversations, which took place in late 2015 and early 2016, allegedly among then-Vice President Biden, Secretary of State John Kerry, and Ukraine's former President Petro Poroshenko.

One of the audiotapes seems to confirm allegations of a quid pro quo between Biden and Poroshenko, with the later admitting that he asked Shokin to resign despite having no evidence of him "doing anything wrong" in exchange for a $1 billion loan guarantee.

"Poroshenko said, 'despite the fact that we didn't have any corruption charges on [Shokin], and we don't have any information about him doing something wrong, I asked him to resign,'" Jason explained. "But none of the Western media is pointing this out."

A recently declassified email, written by former National Security Adviser Susan Rice and sent herself on the day of President Donald Trump's inauguration, reveals the players involved in the origins of the Trump-Russia probe and "unmasking" of then-incoming National Security Adviser, Gen. Michael Flynn.

Rice's email details a meeting in the Oval Office on Jan 5, 2017, which included herself, former FBI Director James Comey, former Deputy Attorney General Sally Yates, former Vice President Joe Biden, and former President Barack Obama. Acting Director of National Intelligence, Richard Grenell, fully declassified the email recently amid President Trump's repeated references to "Obamagate" and claims that Obama "used his last weeks in office to target incoming officials and sabotage the new administration."

On Glenn Beck's Wednesday night special, Glenn broke down the details of Rice's email and discussed what they reveal about the Obama administration officials involved in the Russia investigation's origins.
