Glenn giving up soda?


Glenn Beck is seen here eating on the Insider Webcam, an exclusive feature available only to Glenn Beck Insiders. Learn more...

Glenn: Stu, what are those? Those are the best thing ever.

Stu: They are the best thing ever, Glenn. Exactly. They are Blue Diamond natural oven roasted almonds, vanilla flavor.

Glenn: But I would have a problem. I would eat the whole thing. I am decided I am really, really close to giving up soda.

Stu: That's silly. Soda is delicious. Enjoy it.

Glenn: I met with my doctor yesterday, two days ago, and, you know, he put my arm in a sling and he was, like, you broke your elbow sac or whatever it was. I'm like, what will hell is that?

Stu: That doesn't exist.

Glenn: That's what I said. You're making that up. You're not actually a doctor. And he's, like, no. I've got these thingies I put in my ears. And I said, I don't think you can hear my heartbeat in my elbow. He said, Shhh. I'm listening. But, anyway, but I talked to him. I said, you know, I've got to get healthy and I've got to, blah, blah, blah, blah, blah, and I said, I've got a really bad fall coming up with the election and everything else that's going on and he said, Well, what's your schedule? And I told him. And he said, Hum. That sounds like suicide. And I said, No, no, no. That's why you're being involved now. How do I not die? And he said, Hum. I don't know if I can help you on that one but then he gave me a bunch of stuff to do and he said, you know, you've got to give up soda and everything else.

Stu: Oh, stop it.

Glenn: No. My wife has been trying to get me to give up soda for awhile.

Stu: It's silly.

Glenn: I hate water so much.

Stu: You drink diet soda, by the way. We should point that out. I don't know if your doctor knew that or not.

Glenn: Your body processes diet soda after awhile the same way.

Stu: Why are we it's a typical, like, thing that health magazines do and Sarah is looking at me because she always complains about this to me and I understand she's way more healthy than I am.

Glenn: Did you see how fat she's getting? She hasn't gained an ounce anywhere like except in her stomach region.

Stu: Like in the last eight, nine months.

Glenn: It's this weird I think she has a tumor, a stomach tumor or something.

Stu: Really?

Glenn: Yeah. It's like she's got a watermelon in her stomach. I'm afraid of her.

Stu: Don't say it too loud. He's right there.

Glenn: I'll tell you something. If cantaloupes stop shooting out of her, remember, you heard it here first. Have a camera nearby because that would be cool.

Stu: I don't want to have that conversation. Nor do I want the video.

Glenn: We can sell the video.

Stu: That's possible. It would be a scientific

Glenn: Sarah with cantaloupes shooting out of her. It would be fantastic. Did you see the movie Chameleon? She could be on the phone and tell me with Sarah this could happen. She could be on the phone and all of the sudden her belly could rip open and then it comes and eats us. I saw it. They scamper through the air vents and stuff. Anyway, what were we talking about?

Stu: We were talking about soda.

Glenn: Yes.

Stu: And the fact that health magazines like to blame weight gain on soda.

Glenn: I wasn't blaming it on it.

Stu: It's 0 calories and also the fact that people that are fat and like to drink are the ones that drink the diet soda. So, of course they drink more. That's why they need diet sodas because they've been eating more all of their lives. I know. I'm one of them.

Glenn: That's true. I'll give you that. I look at it as 150 calories saved. There you go. This argument always pisses me off, the main ingredient in soda, water. It's mainly water.

Stu: I thought of you this your big point on this, there is a huge new development on this.

Glenn: Well, let me give you my viewpoint. What kind of I'm tired of seeing the PBS specials, the amazing machine, the human body, the amazing machine. It's so amazing, they keep telling me to drink more lousy water. I hate water. They're telling me to drink more water. Coke is mainly water. My body can't sort it out? What kind of filtering system is this?


I'm sorry. Go ahead, Stu.

Stu: Are you ready for it? There's two new fronts on this. First of all, there is a new study released that the water thing is bull crap, they've been telling you for years in all these magazines and there is no discernible difference between the people that drink 8 glasses of water a day and those that don't.

Glenn: Really?

Stu: That is bull crap. I will get the story for you momentarily.

Glenn: Am I the only one that hates water?

Stu: I like it after you exercise and stuff like that.

Glenn: I like it, like, in the middle of the night where when you wake up and you're, like, I've got to have water. Have you ever had that.

Stu: Yeah.

Glenn: Where I just there's a couple of times a month, I'll wake up in the middle of the night (indicating.) I don't think I have an ounce of water in me and you crawl to the kitchen to get a drink of water and you can, like, feel your eyes get bigger.

Stu: Are you keeping a canteen next to your bed?

Glenn: I do. That's the only time I like water. It's so boring. It doesn't taste like anything. I hate it. Here's the thing. If I ever become President or God, like Obama, I'm going to make water taste good. I mean, look. Toothpaste?

Stu: Uh huh.

Glenn: It's got fluoride in it. So does water. Well, how about we make water taste minty? We can do it to toothpaste. We can't make it, like, minty fresh water? It would be great.

Stu: Do you think Barack Obama could

Glenn: Chocolate chip water. Oh, yeah.

Stu: I think Barack Obama could make chocolate chip water.

Glenn: Doughnut flavored water.

Stu: They do have a lot of the flavored waters now, Glenn.

Glenn: Yeah. They suck.

Stu: Can Barack Obama part a bottle of water? He can part the sea, we know.

Glenn: Only well, first of all, he wouldn't because Fiji water is brought from an island on a giant 747 and that's not very environmentally sound, but he can do it with Perrier.

Stu: Really?

Glenn: Yeah. It's French.

Stu: It's interesting. Now, Glenn, the other development in this little turn of events

Glenn: Yes.

Stu: that's completely off topic and all we've got here is I was in a grocery store the other day and I'm going through the soda aisle, which I spend most of my time in the soda aisle, and there is a big, giant case of soda, a big display that has as one of its advertising slogans on the back Soda Hydrates, Too, and it's a big thing about how don't believe it, soda can give you just as much hydration as water.

Glenn: Well, that would be coming from a bigot like you. So

Stu: It comes from big soda.

Glenn: No. It comes from a bigot like you, somebody who is just so bigoted who thinks I can vote for Barack Obama but that means I'm not a racist.

Here is the latest, Barack Obama the campaign is already starting to come out now that if you vote for Barack Obama, it doesn't mean you're not a racist. So, you could vote for him, you could support him, he could be the most powerful man in the world, but it doesn't mean anything about you being a racist. You're still a racist, honky.

Acclaimed environmentalist and author of "Apocalypse Never" Michael Shellenberger joined Glenn Beck on the radio program Wednesday to warn us about the true goals and effects of climate alarmism: It's become a "secular religion" that lowers standards of living in developed countries, holds developing countries back, and has environmental progress "exactly wrong."

Michael is a Time "Hero of the Environment," Green Book Award winner, and the founder and president of Environmental Progress. He has been called a "environmental guru," "climate guru," "North America's leading public intellectual on clean energy," and "high priest" of the environmental humanist movement for his writings and TED talks, which have been viewed more than 5 million times. But when Michael penned a stunning article in Forbes saying, "On Behalf of Environmentalists, I Apologize for the Climate Scare", the article was pulled just a few hours later. (Read more here.)

On the show, Micheal talked about how environmental alarmism has overtaken scientific fact, leading to a number of unfortunate consequences. He said one of the problems is that rich nations are blocking poor nations from being able to industrialize. Instead, they are seeking to make poverty sustainable, rather than to make poverty history.

"As a cultural anthropologist, I've been traveling to poorer countries and interviewing small farmers for over 30 years. And, obviously there are a lot of causes why countries are poor, but there's no reason we should be helping them to stay poor," Michael said. "A few years ago, there was a movement to make poverty history ... [but] it got taken over by the climate alarmist movement, which has been focused on depriving poor countries, not just of fossil fuels they need to develop, but also the large hydroelectric dams."

He offered the example of the Congo, one of the poorest countries in the world. The Congo has been denied the resources needed to build large hydroelectric dams, which are absolutely essential to pull people out of poverty. And one of the main groups preventing poor countries from the gaining financing they need to to build dams is based in Berkeley, California — a city that gets its electricity from hydroelectric dams.

"It's just unconscionable ... there are major groups, including the Sierra Club, that support efforts to deprive poor countries of energy. And, honestly, they've taken over the World Bank [which] used to fund the basics of development: roads, electricity, sewage systems, flood control, dams," Micheal said.

"Environmentalism, apocalyptic environmentalism in particular, has become the dominant religion of supposedly secular people in the West. So, you know, it's people at the United Nations. It's people that are in very powerful positions who are trying to impose 'nature's order' on societies," he continued. "And, of course, the problem is that nobody can figure out what nature is, and what it's not. That's not a particular good basis for organizing your economy."

Dr. Voddie Baucham, Dean of Theology at African Christian University in Lusaka, Zambia, joined Glenn Beck on the radio program to explain why he agrees with Vice President Mike Pence's refusal to say the phrase "Black Lives Matter."

Baucham, who recently drew national attention when his sermon titled "Ethnic Gnosticism" resurfaced online, said the phrase has been trademarked by a dangerous, violent, Marxist movement that doesn't care about black lives except to use them as political pawns.

"We have to separate this movement from the issues," Baucham warned. "I know that [Black Lives Matter] is a phrase that is part of an organization. It is a trademark phrase. And it's a phrase designed to use black people.

"That phrase dehumanizes black people, because it makes them pawns in a game that has nothing whatsoever to do with black people and their dignity. And has everything to do with a divisive agenda that is bigger than black people. That's why I'm not going to use that phrase, because I love black people. I love being black."

Baucham warned that Black Lives Matter -- a radical Marxist movement -- is using black people and communities to push a dangerous and divisive narrative. He encouraged Americans to educate themselves on the organization's agenda and belief statement.

"This movement is dangerous. This movement is vicious. And this movement uses black people," he emphasized. "And so if I'm really concerned about issues in the black community -- and I am -- then I have to refuse, and I have to repudiate that organization. Because they stand against that for which I am advocating."

On last week's Wednesday night special, Glenn Beck revealed where the Black Lives Matter organization really gets its funding, and the dark money trail leading to a cast of familiar characters. Shortly after the program aired, one of BLM's fiscal sponsors, Thousand Currents, took down its board of directors page, which featured one of these shady characters:

Ex-Marxist professor and author of "Beyond Woke," Michael Rectenwald, joined Glenn Beck on the TV show to fill us in on the suspicious change he discovered on the Thousand Currents webpage and the Communist terrorists who is now helping run the organization. (Fortunately, the internet is forever, so it is still possible to view the board of directors page by looking at a web archive from the WayBack Machine.)

Rectenwald revealed the shocking life history of Thousand Currents' vice chair of the board, Susan Rosenberg, who spent 16 years in federal prison for her part in a series of increasingly violent acts of terrorism, including bombing the U.S. Capitol building, bombing an FBI building, and targeting police for assassination.

"Their whole campaign was one of unbelievably vicious, murderous cop killings, assassinations, and bombings," explained Rectenwald of Rosenberg's terror group known as the May 19th Communist Organization or M19.
