Glenn Beck: Spotlight on Science!

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 his passion for everything science.

GLENN: That's right. Boy, oh, boy, us faithful with our guns and God, we're just so stupid. I'm glad we got some scientific-like thinkers now to listen to, tell us what to do. You remember that big Large Hadron Collider? Remember the particle collider that some people just go, "Wait a minute, you're going to create a black hole. Isn't that kind of bad?" And then scientists were like, "Excuse me, but that's ridiculous. Of course we've done mathematical equations all our lives. How could we possibly, how could we possibly create a black hole that would gobble up the Earth? Those are the words of science fiction."

Well, three physicists now have reexamined the math surrounding the creation of microscopic black holes in the Switzerland-based LHC, the world's largest particle collider. They have determined that those black holes won't simply evaporate in a millisecond as had previously been predicted. "Hold on. Well, I think that maybe their mathematical equations are..." "Hang on. Let me hear what they say. " Robert Casadio, the University of Baloney in Italy -- it's not -- I think it is the University of Baloney in Italy and Sergio Fabi and Benjamin Harms of the University of Alabama say many black holes could exist for much longer, perhaps even more than a second. A relative eternity in particle colliders where most objects decay much faster. Under such long-lived conditions, it becomes a race to see how fast the black hole can decay and how fast it can gobble up matter and grow bigger and prevent itself from decaying. "This sounds like fun. This is like a night at the racetrack." Yes, where we're all crushed by gravity. Casadio, Fabi and Harms think the black hole would lose out and pass through the Earth or -- pass through the Earth? I think we need to have... "Ow! That hurt." What happened? "Just a black hole went through my foot." Or it will just somehow or another pass through the atmosphere before it got to be a problem. But here's the problem I have with that. Casadio, Fabi and Harms think the black hole would lose out. I'm sorry. Think? "We conclude that a growth of black holes to catastrophic size does not at this time seem possible." Neither did walking on the moon? "Nonetheless, it remains true that the expected decay times are much longer, possibly more than a second, and that is something that hasn't been predicted by other models." I'm sorry. Did you just say it doesn't seem possible? Seem? Think? Hmmm. "Maybe I just don't understand those complicated scientific terms like 'I think' and 'it doesn't seem like it could happen.'"

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.

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.
