Here's the one thing: Sometimes we need to begin with dessert.

SEN. BARBARA BOXER, D-CALIF: Let me talk to you.

HARRY C. ALFORD, PRESIDENT AND CEO OF THE NATIONAL BLACK CHAMBER OF COMMERCE: Yes, ma'am.

BOXER: This is friendly. I want us to go back there together. I want you to come with me and John and let's go see these jobs you say don't exist. So what we're going to do...

ALFORD: Yes, ma'am.

BOXER: Good. Put in the record the Pew Charitable Trust report, which says, and I am reading one sentence: "Jobs in the clean energy economy grew at a faster rate than total jobs in the Golden State between '98 and 2007." And it talks about all of that and driven by venture capital and the laws on the books. So we're going to put that in the record.

Then we're going to put the NAACP resolution that passed, saying this: "The NAACP approved the historic resolution addressing climate change legislation for the first time in the organization's history."

ALFORD: What does that mean?

BOXER: Sir, we're going to put that in the record and you can read it because I don't have the time...

ALFORD: What does that mean, though? The NAACP has a resolution, what does that mean?

BOXER: Sir, they could say the same thing about what do you mean. I'm just telling you they passed it.

ALFORD: I've got documentation.

BOXER: They passed it. Now, also, if that isn't interesting to you we'll quote John Grant, who is the CEO of 100 Black Men of Atlanta. Quote: "Clean energy is the key that will unlock millions of jobs and the NAACP's support is vital to ensuring that those jobs help to rebuild urban areas."

So, clearly there's a diversity of opinion...

ALFORD: Madam Chair, that is condescending to me. I'm the National Black Chamber of Commerce and you're trying to put up some other black group to pit against me.

BOXER: If this gentleman... If this gentleman were here, he would be proud that he was being quoted.

ALFORD: He should have been invited!

BOXER: Just so you know, he would be proud that you were here.

ALFORD: It is condescending to me.

BOXER: He's proud, I'm sure, that I am quoting him.

ALFORD: Proud? All that's condescending and I don't like it. It's racial. I don't like it. I take offense to it.

BOXER: OK.

ALFORD: As an African-American and a veteran of this country, I take offense to that!

BOXER: Offense at the fact that I would quote...?

ALFORD: You're quoting some other black man. Why don't you quote some other Asian... or ... you are being racial here. And I think you're getting to a path here that's going to explode.

BOXER: I am going to respond right and I'm going to ask everyone to listen to what I said. First, I placed in the record the Pew Charitable Trust study — very important study for our state, our home state of California.

ALFORD: Fine.

BOXER: Then, I wanted to make a point that the fact is there's definitely differing opinions in the black community, just as there are in my community.

ALFORD: You're speaking on behalf of the black community?

BOXER: No. I am putting in the record a statement by the NAACP.

ALFORD: Why?

BOXER: Because I think it is quite relevant.

ALFORD: I understand the Pew... I understand the Pew study. But why are you doing the NAACP... why are you doing the Colored People Association study with the Black Chamber of Commerce?

BOXER: I am trying to show the diversity of support that we have.

ALFORD: Diversity?

ALFORD: We are referring to the experts regardless of their color. And for someone to tell me, an African-American, college-educated veteran of the United States Army that I must contend with some other black group and put aside everything else in here — this has nothing to do with the NAACP and really has nothing to do with the National Black Chamber of Commerce. We're talking energy and that... road the Chair went down, I think, is God-awful.

(END VIDEO CLIP)

I found that very rude.

And hey, wasn't Boxer the same senator that freaked out when Brigadier General Michael Walsh called her "ma'am"?

Yep! Take a look:

(BEGIN VIDEO CLIP)

BOXER: Why has it been delayed?

BRIG. GEN. MICHAEL WALSH, U.S. ARMY: Ma'am, at the LACPR is...

BOXER: You know, do me a favor: Could you say senator instead of ma'am?

WALSH: Yes.

BOXER: It's just a thing. I've worked so hard to get that title. So, I'd appreciate it. Thank you.

WALSH: Yes, Senator.

(END VIDEO CLIP)

Yeah, don't call her "ma'am," even though that's a word of respect the military requires. But as we pointed out last month, you didn't hear Boxer calling Michael Walsh "brigadier general."

Oh, and I almost forgot: Did you notice that Harry Alford of the National Black Chamber of Commerce called her "ma'am" too? Oh, he sure did! Take a look:

(BEGIN VIDEO CLIPS)

BOXER: Your address is Washington, D.C.?

ALFORD: Yes, ma'am

ALFORD: Yes, ma'am

ALFORD: Yes, ma'am

(END VIDEO CLIPS)

As you could see, she didn't correct him once. So it wasn't about being called "ma'am" last month; it was being called "ma'am" by a soldier.

How many times must the corporate media get something completely wrong — and attack anyone who dares to disagree — before we realize who they have become?

On the radio program Friday, Glenn Beck shared an article from the Daily Caller titled, "Eight Anti-Trump Narratives the Media Finally Had to Admit Were False All Along." From the Lafayette Square controversy to the denial that COVID-19 could have anything to do with a lab in China to the "Russian bounties" story, the list of mainstream media conspiracy theories goes on and on. If it were anyone but the liberal media who got the facts this embarrassingly wrong, they would have been out of a job long ago.

Watch the video clip below to hear eight of the most anti-Trump the narratives shamelessly pushed by the media — that were completely wrong.

Former President Barack Obama sat down with CNN's Anderson Cooper recently for an interview scheduled to air in full on Friday. During the interview, Obama scoffed at the idea that critical race theory could be a "threat to our Republic," while claiming that "right-wing media venues" are "stoking the fear and resentment of a white population."

On the radio program Wednesday, Glenn Beck set the record straight: the right-wing media's efforts to call out the far-left have nothing to do with race in America, but rather everything to do with protecting our way of life that is being threatened more and more each day by the radical, Marxist ideology seeping into government.

"Mr. Obama, you lied," Glenn asserted. "You used the IRS to hunt down your enemy. You spied on the media. And your health care package, which was supposed to save every American $3,000 per year, has helped some, perhaps, while raising the cost of everyone's health care in double and triple percentages. But the worst thing that you did, is you planted, you watered, and you protected the Marxist seeds, by crying race."

Our sacred republic has never been in more danger than it is today. Little by little, industry by industry, the far Left is fundamentally transforming the country we love. And it's an aggressive, hostile kind of takeover we've only seen in some of the world's darkest societies.

On Glenn TV this week, Glenn Beck exposes how the Biden administration and Democrats are aggressively scrambling to reset everything: our free and fair voting system, our kids' education, our policing, immigration and border security, our economy, our military, and our energy supply.

Finally, Congressman Dan Crenshaw (R-Texas) joins to discuss how Biden's "woke" policies are threatening America's national security and our way of life.

Apparel company The North Face recently stated that it would no longer make jackets for oil and gas companies because it doesn't want to be associated with the fossil fuel industry. In response, Colorado-based oil and gas company Liberty Oilfield Services rented full billboard ads to remind The North Face of the truth: "Globally, 60% of all clothing fibers are made out of oil and gas. For North Face, it is likely 90% or more."

Liberty CEO Chris Wright joined Glenn Beck on the radio program Tuesday to discuss just how much of our economy — beyond outdoor apparel and energy — wouldn't exist in a world without fossil fuels. And he warns that many companies are now deeming this truth to be "controversial."

"I have been for years, trying to get a real, honest dialogue about energy going," Chris told Glenn. "So we took this opportunity to point out that North Face jackets are ... almost completely made out of oil and gas. How can you choose not to associate with the essential material your equipment [is] made out of? So we put a billboard up ... the billboard says, 'That North Face puffer looks good on you. And it was made from fossil fuels.'"

"Most billboard companies did not want to run that billboard. They thought it was controversial," he added. "And Facebook put a hold on our brief video just saying the jacket looks good, this is what it's made out of. In today's world, that is controversial."
