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.

WATCH:

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?

GLENN: Yes.

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.

[laughter]

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 --

GLENN: No.

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.

Former President Barack Obama sat down with CNN's Anderson Cooper recently for an interview scheduled to air in full on Friday. During the interview, Obama scoffed at the idea that critical race theory could be a "threat to our Republic," while claiming that "right-wing media venues" are "stoking the fear and resentment of a white population."

On the radio program Wednesday, Glenn Beck set the record straight: the right-wing media's efforts to call out the far-left have nothing to do with race in America, but rather everything to do with protecting our way of life that is being threatened more and more each day by the radical, Marxist ideology seeping into government.

"Mr. Obama, you lied," Glenn asserted. "You used the IRS to hunt down your enemy. You spied on the media. And your health care package, which was supposed to save every American $3,000 per year, has helped some, perhaps, while raising the cost of everyone's health care in double and triple percentages. But the worst thing that you did, is you planted, you watered, and you protected the Marxist seeds, by crying race."

Our sacred republic has never been in more danger than it is today. Little by little, industry by industry, the far Left is fundamentally transforming the country we love. And it's an aggressive, hostile kind of takeover we've only seen in some of the world's darkest societies.

On Glenn TV this week, Glenn Beck exposes how the Biden administration and Democrats are aggressively scrambling to reset everything: our free and fair voting system, our kids' education, our policing, immigration and border security, our economy, our military, and our energy supply.

Finally, Congressman Dan Crenshaw (R-Texas) joins to discuss how Biden's "woke" policies are threatening America's national security and our way of life.

Apparel company The North Face recently stated that it would no longer make jackets for oil and gas companies because it doesn't want to be associated with the fossil fuel industry. In response, Colorado-based oil and gas company Liberty Oilfield Services rented full billboard ads to remind The North Face of the truth: "Globally, 60% of all clothing fibers are made out of oil and gas. For North Face, it is likely 90% or more."

Liberty CEO Chris Wright joined Glenn Beck on the radio program Tuesday to discuss just how much of our economy — beyond outdoor apparel and energy — wouldn't exist in a world without fossil fuels. And he warns that many companies are now deeming this truth to be "controversial."

"I have been for years, trying to get a real, honest dialogue about energy going," Chris told Glenn. "So we took this opportunity to point out that North Face jackets are ... almost completely made out of oil and gas. How can you choose not to associate with the essential material your equipment [is] made out of? So we put a billboard up ... the billboard says, 'That North Face puffer looks good on you. And it was made from fossil fuels.'"

"Most billboard companies did not want to run that billboard. They thought it was controversial," he added. "And Facebook put a hold on our brief video just saying the jacket looks good, this is what it's made out of. In today's world, that is controversial."

During a lecture at the Yale School of Medicine's Child Study Center, a New York City-based psychiatrist told students and faculty that she fantasizes about "unloading a revolver into the head of any white person that got in my way," among several other shockingly race-hating statements.

In April, Dr. Aruna Khilanani — a New York-based forensic psychiatrist and psychoanalyst — delivered the talk called "The Psychopathic Problem of the White Mind" virtually as part of the Yale School of Medicine's "Child Study Center Grand Rounds," a lecture program for "trainees in child psychiatry, psychology, and social work, faculty, clinicians, and scientists."

On the radio program Monday, Glenn Beck shared several quotes from an audio recording of the lecture provided by Bari Weiss, a former opinion writer and editor for the New York Times.

Here are a few of Khilanani's statements from the audio:

  • "This is the cost of talking to white people at all. The cost of your own life, as they suck you dry. There are no good apples out there. White people make my blood boil."
  • "I had fantasies of unloading a revolver into the head of any white person that got in my way, burying their body, and wiping my bloody hands as I walked away relatively guiltless with a bounce in my step. Like I did the world a f***ing favor."
  • "White people are out of their minds. And they have been for a long time."
  • "White people feel that we are bullying them when we bring up race. They feel that we should be thanking them for all that they have done for us. They are confused, and so are we. We keep forgetting that directly talking about race is a waste of our breath."
  • "We are asking a demented, violent predator who thinks that they are a saint or a superhero, to accept responsibility. It ain't gonna happen. They have five holes in their brain. It's like banging your head against a brick wall. It's just like sort of not a good idea."

"We must take a stand. We must speak out, because this is evil," Glenn said in response to Khilanani's shocking lecture. "I don't care who you voted for, you know this is evil."
