Glenn Beck: Spotlight on (idiot) scientists

VOICE: The Glenn Beck program presents Spotlight on Science.

PRESIDENT OBAMA: We'll restore science to its rightful place.

VOICE: A series dedicated to President Obama for everything science.

GLENN: That's right. You know, this program has won all kinds of awards and medals and everything, statues, and we just, we were just presented the Swedish black hole award, which was great, but it sucked all the presenters right into the award which was kind of tragic. You would think the scientists would have figured that one out. But let's not get bogged down in those facts. You know, most people, we do this segment because most people who listen are, you know, conservative or common sense and they don't understand all this crazy science thing that Obama was talking about. So every day at this time we'll help the President fix science back into her rightful place.

For example, there are too many Canadian geese in states like Connecticut. Wait a minute, hang on just a second. Canadian geese, aren't those the ones that were sucked into that airplane just -- let's not get sidetracked on that. Let's just stay to the facts. Too many Canadian geese in states like Connecticut. Estimates are -- scientific estimates -- 40,000 Canadian geese in the state, primarily in the Southwestern region, which would be where all the airports are. They have the perfect combination of foraging food, nesting and covering habitat in the state. They also don't have many natural predators left in Connecticut. This is where science steps in and creates a predator. Scientists are now recommending, well, not just murdering the geese. I mean, that's what simple minded people -- you and I, we just go grab a shotgun. Let's go have some geese! No, it's, we need science to help us on that. So is the science-approved method of controlling the geese population in the state of Connecticut? Local environmental activists are urging local residents, especially those with waterfront property, to do their part in controlling the geese population through geese family planning, quote/unquote. Not only is family planning an economic stimulus we learned last week from President Obama, it's also the right way to control geese. How are you to help out with family planning of geese? No, no, Mr. Unscientific, not little tiny geese condoms but here's what you need to do. According to science... to reduce their long-term growth rate, you need to locate their nests and oil their eggs. This is what they are asking now in the State of Connecticut for citizens to do, especially those with waterfront property. You locate their nests and oil their eggs. How do you oil geese eggs? One, register with the Fish and Wildlife Service; two, get permission of any private property owners; three, get an approved scientist. I think we have to use the Yellow Pages for that one. Four, bring a dog to scare away the geese; five, try the float test. If an egg submerged in water sinks, it means it's been incubated for less than 13 days and the chick has not matured. So the egg is allowed to be oiled. If the egg floats -- I think then what's inside of the egg is a witch and you have to burn it at the stake. Oh, no, I'm sorry! Sorry, that was just me, the crazy unscientific conservative figuring, there goes my nonscience again. The real answer, of course, is forced geese abortion. How? You bring a spray bottle filled with corn oil. Then you spray it all over the egg. Remember, quoting, it only takes a small amount of oil to prevent the gases from diffusing through the pores of the egg which will cause the embryo to die of asphyxiation. Once you've murdered the embryo -- I'm sorry, not being scientific again. Once you have frozen the embryo to death, you will officially be a scientist!

VOICE: You've been listening to Spotlight on Science, exclusively heard on the Glenn Beck program. America's number one source for science and science-related items.

GLENN: Man, I am so glad, I am so glad that we are finally going to fix science back in her rightful place. Thank you, President Obama.

2021 was a turning point for public education in America. Remote learning revealed to parents what public schools were force-feeding their kids — everything from critical race theory to the existence of infinite genders — while performance in subjects like math and reading fell across the board.

Now, school boards and teachers' unions are facing a tidal wave of parents who want to take the reins back. But school wasn’t always like this. Glenn Beck takes us back to a time before the Department of Education and asks the question: “Are our schools getting better or worse?”

American Federation for Children senior fellow Corey DeAngelis joins to expose who’s actually benefitting from our public school system — and it’s not our kids. And former Secretary of Education under President Trump Betsy DeVos explains why it’s time to abolish the department she once headed, what stopped her from doing so, and how parents can make a big difference.

The Associated Press has issued a dire warning for abortion providers ahead of the Supreme Court's decision on Roe v. Wade.

According to an article titled "'Heightened alert’: Abortion providers brace for ruling," abortion clinics nationwide are expecting an increase in "protests, harassment, and other violence ... in states where abortion remains legal" if Roe v. Wade is overturned — as a draft opinion leaked in May suggested is likely to happen.

"On the night of last winter’s arguments before the U.S. Supreme Court in a case that could end the nationwide right to abortion, people gathered outside a clinic in New Jersey with lawn chairs, a cooler and a flaming torch — a sight that brought to mind lynchings and other horrors of the country’s racist past," the AP article began.

The article did go on to cite two incidents of extreme anti-abortion violence — "the 1993 killing of Dr. David Gunn outside a Florida abortion clinic [and] the 2015 fatal shooting of three people inside a Colorado Planned Parenthood." But there was almost no mention of the ongoing attacks on pregnancy crisis centers by pro-choice activists, including the violent group that calls itself "Jane’s Revenge."

On the radio program, Glenn Beck noted that the closest the current administration has come to calling out Jane’s Revenge was when the Department of Homeland Security published a terror advisory warning of crime on both sides of the Roe v. Wade debate earlier this month. But when was the last time you heard about violent attacks on pro-life centers in the corporate media? There have been several instances of violence by pro-choice proponents, and the Biden administration remains silent.

GLENN: Now the righteous generation of the woke has reached such a level of holiness that it cannot possibly be contaminated by name of a less righteous monster like George Washington. Student insists the university must break its ties with white supremacy and systematic racism by canceling its 200 year old name and renaming it. Are you ready? Malcolm X University.

Disney-owned Pixar's latest animated film "Lightyear" was expected to blast off last weekend, but ended up falling way short of box office expectations.

Box office analysts expected the "Toy Story" spin-off to gross $70 million and $85 million domestically and $50-60 million in offshore markets, despite having been barred in at least 14 countries over a controversial same-sex kissing scene, but the film's total haul worldwide wound up at $85.6 million.

Earlier this year, the controversial kissing scene was apparently cut from the film, but the Disney corporation made a show of reinstating it in March amid outrage over Florida Governor Ron DeSantis' (R) Parental Rights in Education bill.

Now, why would such a woke movie flop at the box office on its opening weekend?

"Blame the fact that it doesn’t appeal to girls, blame Disney+ for stealing family moviegoers, blame the lack of an ensemble Toy Story cast, heck, blame everything as Disney/Pixar’s Lightyear didn’t do its magic by internal studio or industry standards this weekend with $51M, close to a third below its lowest $70M pre-release projection," said Deadline.com.

"Variety" lamented that the film's lofty "ambitions were thwarted by heightened competition from Universal’s behemoth 'Jurassic World: Dominion' and Paramount’s high-flying 'Top Gun: Maverick,' as well as little intrigue to watch a slightly esoteric origin story about Buzz Lightyear."

AV Club guessed that maybe "longtime fans have simply grown up and moved on and/or gotten tougher to please."

Both Vanity Fair and Movie Web seemed to think the problem was with the movie's "high concept premise" of making a film based on a film that was supposed to have inspired the Buzz Lightyear toy in "Toy Story."

On the radio program Monday, Glenn Beck, Stu Burguiere, and Pat Gray weren't afraid to call out the obvious reason Disney's latest film fell flat: Parents are just tired of woke politics in their children's movies. It's really not that hard to figure out, Disney.
