Stu's favorite science story

GLENN: I have to tell you this is one of Stu's favorite stories today in science. This is your favorite science story, Stu?

STU: It is. I love this story.

GLENN: Do you remember cold Fusion? 20 years ago two scientists held a press conference to show the world that they have discovered a nuclear reaction that they could produce in a tabletop experiment. Remember? What does this mean? Nothing much except eventually getting unlimited, safe, close to free energy done with electricity, palladium, one of my favorite alladiums, and seawater. Basically when you put a certain amount of electricity in, it actually generates excess heat meaning it's producing more energy than you are putting in. Huge scientific discovery, was on the cover of magazines and newspapers everywhere. Aren't these guys from Utah or something in yeah, I remember this. Unfortunately the two scientists who discovered it were quickly discovered to be total and complete frauds. The other scientist couldn't replicate their experiments. The media, the scientific community turned on them because of their incredibly irresponsible actions, their work was called fraudulent, sloppy, unethical, unreproducible and inaccurate. The two scientists, Martin Fleischmann and Stanley Pons were two of the most credible in the world before the incident. They later move d to France in obscurity, while sticking to their guns the entire time. Do you believe these idiots? The scientific consensus said the idea of cold Fusion was impossible, yet these two morons, they said they did it once. They wouldn't give up. They are not real scientists. Oh, yeah, by the way, in completely unrelated news 60 Minutes reported this weekend that scientists from around the world are now producing excess heat in tabletop experiments including electricity, seawater and palladium. Again, my favorite alladium. Eventually scientists believe that they could produce unlimited, safe, close to free energy. Wow. What a concept. 60 minutes had the head of the television of American physical society recommend an independent world renowned scientist to go to Israel and hand check every aspect of one of the experiments. Before he went, he didn't believe that cold Fusion was possible. Now he does. In fact, he believes the results of the new experiments are accurate. Oh, yeah, he's not the only one. 60 Minutes obtained an internal memo from DARPA. These are the biggest thinkers in the world that were for the Pentagon. Their memo says, "There is no doubt that excess heat is produced in these experiments." I am so glad that the scientific experts enforce their scientific consensus 20 years ago, aren't you? I mean, maybe if they weren't deny grating and making fun of the scientists back then, they could have tried to learn and improve on the process. We would have, you know, we would have had cheap unlimited carbon free energy today and we wouldn't have to worry about spending trillions of dollars on global warming. See, the silly logic is about as crazy as saying cold fusion is possible.

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.

On Monday's episode of "The Glenn Beck Radio Program," Glenn opened up about the tragic death of his brother-in-law, Vincent Colonna Jr., who passed away unexpectedly on April 5. He also shared some of the important thoughts and insights he's learned through the grieving process.

"Last Monday, I was sitting in this chair ... the two-minute warning comes and Stu said to me, 'You ready for the show?'' ... And that's when my wife [Tania] came to the door of the studio here at our house and said, 'I...' and she held the phone up. And then she collapsed on the floor in tears," Glenn began. "Tania's brother had passed. To say this was a shock, is an understatement."

Glenn described his brother-in-law as having "a servant's spirit."

"He was always the guy who lit up the room. He was always the guy helping others. He would never stop, because he was always helping others," Glenn said of Vincent. "He was on the school board. He was a little league coach. He was the soccer coach. He helped build the church. He took care of the lawn of the church. He was constantly doing things, raising money for charity, working over here, helping to organize this. But he was never the guy in the spotlight. He was just the guy doing it, and you had no idea how much he had done because he never talked about it.

"We also didn't know how much mental anguish he was in because he never talked about it. And last Monday morning, after spending Easter with the family ... he killed himself. This is now the third family member of mine that has gone through this. And I keep seeing it play out over and over and over again, in exactly the same way."

Glenn described his thoughts as he, Tania, and her family struggled to come to grips with the devastating loss.

"I learned some really important things as I was watching this wake. I'm seeing these people from all walks of life ... the people that were there, were there because [Vince] made a difference in their life. He was a true servant. As I'm watching this, all that kept going through my mind was, 'by their fruits, ye shall know them.' The fruits of his labor were on display. He was a servant all the time. All the time ... he found a way to love everybody.

"There are two great commandments: Love God with all your heart and mind and soul. And love your neighbor. So those two great commandments boil down to: Love truth. Because that's what God is," Glenn said.

"Love thy neighbor. That's where joy comes from. The opposite of joy is despair, and that is the complete absence of hope ... and how do you find joy? You find joy by rooting yourself in the truth. Even if that's a truth you don't want to accept. Accept the truth," he added. "But we have to stop saying that there's nothing we can do. What are we going to do? Well, here's the first thing: stop living a lie."

After imprisoning a pastor for refusing to follow COVID-19 restrictions, Canadian officials barricaded his church. And when some church members retaliated by tearing down part of the fence, Canadian Mounties arrived in riot gear.

Rebel News Founder Ezra Levant joined Glenn Beck on the radio program to give his insight on the crazy situation. He described the new, armed police presence surrounding GraceLife Church in Edmonton, Alberta, and how it not only encouraged hundreds of protesters to stand with the church in support but forced congregation members underground to worship as well.

What's happening is eerily similar to what occurs everyday in China, Levant says, and it must stop. Who would have thought this type of tyranny would be so close to home?

Watch the video below to hear Ezra describe the religious persecution taking place in Canada.

Enough prayers? Why is supposed Catholic Joe Biden suggesting that Congress ought to stop praying for after someone commits acts of gun violence?

On Friday, Stu Burguiere and Pat Gray filled in for Glenn and discussed President Joe Biden's remarks during his speech on gun control. "Enough prayers. Time for some action," Biden said. Stu and Pat were surprised how dismissive Biden appeared to be on the idea of prayer.

Just days after Canadian pastor James Coates was released from prison for refusing to bow to COVID-19 lockdown restrictions, several police officers showed up at another church to ensure restrictions were being followed. But Polish pastor Artur Pawlowski of the Cave of Adullam Church in Alberta, Canada, knew his rights, telling the cops not to come back until they had a warrant in hand.

Filling in for Glenn Beck on the radio program this week, Pat Gray and Stu Burguiere played a video of the interaction.

"Please get out. Please get out of this property immediately. Get out!" Pawlowski can be heard yelling at the six officers who entered his church.

"Out! Out! Out! Get out of this property immediately until you come back with a warrant," he continued. "Go out and don't come back. I don't want to talk to you. You Nazis, Gestapo is not allowed here! ... Nazis are not welcome here! Do not come back you Nazi psychopaths. Unbelievable sick, evil people. Intimidating people in a church during the Passover! You Gestapo, Nazi, communist fascists! Don't you dare come back here!"
