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.

A recent report from Rolling Stone details a public letter sent to Spotify — signed by "270 physicians and scientists" — demanding that the platform implement a "misinformation policy" in response to Joe Rogan's recent interview with Dr. Robert Malone on “The Joe Rogan Experience.”

"This is absolute fascism," Glenn Beck said on the radio program. "There is no safe space. They're coming after talk radio. They're coming after our podcasts. They're coming after our websites."

Glenn said this is this is just one more example of the left's crackdown on freedom of speech and further prove of their ongoing fight against free thinkers or anybody who wants to have an open conversation that may include ideas contrary to what they believe.

There is no transparency when it comes to the Biden administration, and Texas Republican Sen. Ted Cruz's recent exchange with the FBI’s Jill Sanborn is just another example. When questioned about alleged involvement the FBI had on January 6, 2021, Sanborn refused to answer almost every single time.

Do our government officials still work for us? Take a look at the latest headlines: The DOJ and U.S. Army are preparing for possible conflicts with "domestic terrorists," Biden's education secretary allegedly requested the NSBA letter that suggested treating upset parents like domestic terrorists, and President Biden said if you're not with him on the Democrats' voting bills, then you're with the Confederacy. Meanwhile, the FBI won't tell Congress whether it was involved in the the Jan. 6 Capitol riot and the corporate media insists that there's nothing to see here, especially concerning Ray Epps.

The American people are concerned, and it’s "extraordinarily disturbing" how far the federal government goes to avoid answering our questions, Glenn Beck said on the radio program. There's a very odd growing trend here: Our leaders, including the unelected ones, no longer answer to the people. This must stop now.

"The question that I have is, where is the transparency? And is anyone going to be held accountable? They are not afraid of our senators. They are not afraid of Congress," he stated. "This has got to stop. They have got to answer to the law. This is an oversight committee. Who is in charge, the FBI or the people? Once the people are not in charge and are not allowed to see the secret documents, we are toast. Toast!"

Have you ever wondered why so many insane things are happening simultaneously RIGHT NOW? Big corporations are going woke. The stock market got red-hot during a FORCED recession. Stores like Walmart and Target were allowed to stay open during the lockdown, but mom-and-pop stores on Main Street had to close, some of them forever.

On Wednesday's "GlennTV" special, Glenn Beck explains it all in this sneak-peek episode — a primer to his new book and the upcoming explosive, in-depth special: “The Great Reset: Joe Biden & the Rise of 21st-Century Fascism.” Co-author Justin Haskins joins along with Glenn’s head writer and researcher, Jason Buttrill, to answer audience questions about a topic that the media has tried to censor and “fact-check.” You will be equipped with everything you need to know about what the global elites of the world have planned for the transformation of society and YOUR life.

After new information came out that suggests Dr. Anthony Fauci intimidated and bribed scientists into dismissing the COVID-19 lab-leak theory, Sen. Rand Paul and Fauci got into a heated debate in a Senate hearing. But instead of providing answers, Fauci accused Sen. Paul of endangering him.

Sen. Paul joined "The Glenn Beck Program" Wednesday with his response and explained why he believes "people live in fear of what [Fauci] will do to them."

"It's all about money. If you cross Tony Fauci, you don't get your money. He controls the purse strings for the entire country, the entire university system. And he's been doing it for forty years," Sen. Paul began.

"It's consistent with his arrogance, this level of arrogance that he's developed. He said several weeks ago, that he is science and any attack on him is an attack on science. Yesterday, he said anybody who opposes him is encouraging death threats," he added.

"Look, I've been on the receiving end of semi-automatic gunfire. I was 20 yards away from Steve Scalise when he almost died. I was 10 feet away from a staffer that was shot. And, you know what? The guy doing the shooting was a Bernie Sanders supporter. But not one of us, not one of the Republicans on the ball field, said, 'Oh, it was Bernie Sanders' fault.' But that's the juvenile level of personal attack that Fauci is now stooping to. He is saying that the personal threats he gets are actually the fault of his critics."

Sen. Paul continued, "But the thing is, [Fauci] needs to answer the question. Everything he did in the committee yesterday was misdirection so he didn't have to answer the question. The question was, why did he smear three scientists from Stanford, Oxford, and Harvard? Why did he smear them as fringe epidemiologists? And why did he conspire against Francis Collins to take them down in a very public way? He wouldn't answer the question."
