Glenn Beck: Spotlight On Science

  Domino Sugar have been certified CarbonFree

GLENN:  You are not going to believe the latest in the green movement!  Putting science in her rightful place may be a little more exciting than I thought.  This is good stuff.  When it makes -- when being green makes me talk about sugar, sugary treats like cake and icing, cake with icing, icing with icing, icing with M&Ms and icing, I'm in.  But, of course, this is today about a greener sugar.  Let me say it again.  This is about a greener sugar, not even that green sprinkly sugar that they put on those huge clover cookies at St. Paddy's Day.  Oh, cookies!  This is about environmentalist sugar.  These guys are now treading into Glenn Beck territory.  I warn you, it could get ugly.  Domino's sugar is now offering certified carbon-free sugar.  Now for all you tree huggers, this is a moment when the sunburst through the clouds and angels sing because your movement is now moving ahead with so much steam that there are sure to be supermarkets with only hemp burgers and recyclable diapers -- thanks, Canada -- on the bamboo shelves at any moment.  But as we look closer and really think of carbon-free sugar, I'm pretty sure it's impossible.  "But this is certified."  Yes, I know.  I'm pretty sure it's impossible.  Why?  Well, I seem to recall, I didn't really listen in high school chemistry but when we had to stare at that damn periodic table of elements, didn't we all learn that C stood for carbon.  Carbon is an element!  You can't ban elements!  But C was carbon.  Carbon makes up a lot of things.  Carbon dioxide, carbon monoxide.  Us, you're a carbon-based life form.  Oh, how about this one:  Carbohydrate.  What do you think the carbo stands for?  Sugar.  Sucrose is a common table sugar.  It has the chemical formula of C12H22O11.  I don't want to get too scientific here but after all, we're putting science in her rightful place.  C12 means carbon, 12 molecules of carbon.  H2211, 11 molecules of water.  It's H2O times 11.  So when you have carbon and water, you get carbo-hydrates, hydrates, like hydropower.  Water... carbo... hydrates.  So if you have no carbon in sugar, you have... hydrates.  Drink a glass of water and pour that on your frickin' cake!  Wow, imagine how good those hemp cookies and flaxseed frosting will taste with the new environmentally friendly green certified carbon-free sugar water that has no sugar in it! 

Sen. Ted Cruz: NOBODY should be afraid of Trump's Supreme Court justice pick

Sen. Ted Cruz (R-Texas) joined Glenn Beck on the radio program Wednesday to weigh in on President Donald Trump's potential Supreme Court nominees and talk about his timely new book, "One Vote Away: How a Single Supreme Court Seat Can Change History."

Sen. Cruz argued that, while Congressional Democrats are outraged over President Trump's chance at a third court appointment, no one on either side should be afraid of a Supreme Court justice being appointed if it's done according to the founding documents. That's why it's crucial that the GOP fills the vacant seat with a true constitutionalist.

Sen. Mike Lee (R-Utah) joined Glenn Beck on the radio program Wednesday to talk about why he believes President Donald Trump will nominate Judge Amy Coney Barrett to fill the Supreme Court vacancy created by Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg's death.

Lee, a member of the Senate Judiciary Committee that will consider and vote on the nominee, also weighed in on another Supreme Court contender: Judge Barbara Lagoa. Lee said he would not be comfortable confirming Lagoa without learning more about her history as it pertains to upholding the U.S. Constitution.

This week on the Glenn Beck Podcast, Glenn spoke with Vox co-founder Matthew Yglesias about his new book, "One Billion Americans: The Case for Thinking Bigger."

Matthew and Glenn agree that, while conservatives and liberals may disagree on a lot, we're not as far apart as some make it seem. If we truly want America to continue doing great things, we must spend less time fighting amongst ourselves.

'A convenient boogeyman for misinformation artists': Why is the New York Times defending George Soros?

On the "Glenn Beck Radio Program" Tuesday, Glenn discussed the details of a recent New York Times article that claims left-wing billionaire financier George Soros "has become a convenient boogeyman for misinformation artists who have falsely claimed that he funds spontaneous Black Lives Matter protests as well as antifa, the decentralized and largely online, far-left activist network that opposes President Trump."

The Times article followed last week's bizarre Fox News segment in which former House Speaker Newt Gingrich appeared to be censored for criticizing Soros (read more here). The article also labeled Glenn a "conspiracy theorist" for his tweet supporting Gingrich.
