Life has a way of kicking you in the pants sometimes and we've had a few of those events in recent weeks. The silver linings in times like these are gaining a greater appreciation for your family and friends. Family isn't only blood. Family includes all those that have an impact on your heart and help you foster love and make the world a better place.

As a staff and as an audience, we can all say Glenn and Stu are our family. They work tirelessly to bring information to you but it's not for the paycheck. Their hearts are so full of love for you that they put in the long hours needed to be what you need them to be because of the love that has been fostered with you.

Stu a.k.a Steven Burguiere celebrated his birthday on February 9th with his daughter Ainslee with whom he shares a birthday.


Sunday the 10th is when the "Big Guy" celebrated his birthday. If you've been following the show as of late, Glenn has been whining about his new diet.

Glenn hasn't mentioned what he had planned for his birthday, but an educated guess might conclude it did not involve cake.

As this childhood birthday photograph attests, nobody loves Glenn more than his big sister, Michelle.

Watch Michelle's birthday message to her little brother, Glenn, below:

We all love Glenn and Stu and feel like they're family, so we thought we'd let you write in with your birthday wishes. We had messages pour in from California to Florida and even Scotland. Here are just a few of the many birthday wishes from listeners:

Glenn and Steve, thank you for being lights in the storm, voices of reason in a crazy world and the perfect combination of broadcasters. Wishing you both another healthy, happy and successful year. May God bless you and your families. After losing Doc this week, it really made me realize how much y'all impact my day. I invite you into my home 3-4 hours a day. That is more than any other guest. I know it is a one way relationship, but that relationship has changed my life. So thank you. HAPPY BIRTHDAY fellas! 🎊 — Shelley
Happy birthday Glenn and Stu ! Love you both and appreciate everyday what you do. I was with you in DC, Israel, Dallas, Salt Lake City and Birmingham . Thanks for the wonderful memories. — Diana from Rose Hill, Kansas
Glenn Beck, it's my joy to celebrate another year of your life! Who would have known that a sick twisted freak from the Pacific northwest would be one of the impactful men of our time. I thank God in heaven for the gift of you, and I pray we get to celebrate you for many, many more outrageous years! Happy Birthday from Dory Ann in Buffalo, N.Y.. [no relation to those jholes downstate] xoxo
Happy birthday Glenn and happy belated birthday Stu! Ya'll are like family to me and to so many others. Thank you for not just talking the talk but for always walking the walk as well, with dignity and grace. You work so hard to keep us informed and to seek truth. I have learned so much from both of you over the last 10 years through laughter and tears. You have helped to open my mind, spirit and heart over the years, a truly priceless gift. Thank you for fighting for we the people and for empowering us to seek truth and love. ♡ Big hugs to you both!!!! Love, Holly from Raleigh, NC
Dear Stu and Glenn, you and The Blaze bring quality information into our homes and lives everyday, but you do more than that. You also exhibit a Christ driven example of leadership for all of us to mirror. Not 'I am your leader', more of a 'this is how I think He wants us to be'. This is how we may save our America and those who depend on her, if it is in His will. Huge thanks to you and your staff for the true journalism and fact finding, and showing us the path for our own truth quest. Aaaaannnd.......you share a birthday with my lovely first born daughter. February 9th is really 'gift' day to us all, isn't it? — Caterina from Los Lunas, New Mexico
Happy Birthday, Glenn and Stu 🎁🎂 I have learned so much from you over the years, I have learned to grow my thinking, and I have even changed my views after reading and studying what you've said. Thank you for your hard work, diligence, commitment to our great nation, and for teaching and leading those of us who listen and follow. God bless you and keep you❣️— Amy from Waco, Texas
Happy birthday (February 9th for Steve "Stu" Burguiere and February 10th for Glenn Beck)! May we stand with you to assist others to join "Outrage Anonymous" so that we may all recover from our irrational addiction to thinking that getting upset and angry will solve our problems rather than employ the cool-headed and evenhanded critical thinking that you espouse every single day that is the only way to bring us all together and ensure a world and country that we can all be proud of for generations to come. — Zagros from Winston-Salem, North Carolina
Happy Birthday Stu! Happy Birthday Glenn! Thank you for all you do! I learn something new everyday! God Bless!!! — Teresa from Rock Valley, Iowa
Happy Birthday Glenn and Stu! Thank you for being voices of reason. Our Captain, and First Mate on this ship that feels rickety at times, charting the turbulent seas that our country has become. Your words often echo what we are already feeling, and many times you provide a measured approach to discourse that we have with friends and family. We appreciate all your work. All the 'news' you watch so we don't have to! We are all trying to ring the bell, show the way. You help us find each other and feel less alone. Only God knows how this will progress. But along the way, because of you and all of your team at the Blaze, Mercury One, O.U.R., we have met wonderful fellow travelers and learned the true meaning of charity. — Jean from West Palm Beach, Florida

Longtime listeners know that Glenn and Pat exchange the same pair of pants as a gift each year and have done so for decades. They may be the ugliest pair of pants ever designed, but they will live on in infamy on the Glenn Beck Program. That's all fun and games but have you ever wondered what Glenn gives Stu as a gift?

This year at least, he spared the only conservative vegetarian and did not send a meat basket.

We couldn't include all the messages sent in but thank you to all who did. Words cannot express how much this audience is connected and how much love we've shared over the years. You never know how long you've got and you never know how much we mean to each other so now is the time to express just how much we care about one another.

God bless and happy birthday Glenn and Stu!

Fortunately, President Trump walked away from his attempted assassination with very minor injuries. The bullet that wounded Trump's ear could have just as easily ended his life, and his survival is nothing short of a miracle.

Sadly, that miracle didn't extend to everyone attending Trump's ill-fated Pennsylvania rally. Three other people were shot. David Dutch and James Copenhaver, both Pennslyavia residents, are thankfully in stable condition. Corey Comperatore, however, tragically died after being shot while protecting his wife and daughter from the hail of gunfire.

“Corey died a hero."

Camperatore, a 50-year-old loving father and husband from Buffalo Township, Pennsylvania leaves behind his daughter Allyson, his wife Helen, sister Dawn, and many other friends and family. Camperatore was a man of service, having spent 43 years as part of the Buffalo Township Volunteer Fire Company and had worked his way to becoming the fire chief when he stepped down to spend more time with his daughter.

Corey's friends and family have nothing but good things to say about him, and judging by their testimonies, Corey's final heroic act was consistent with how the volunteer firefighter lived his life.

According to many people who knew Compertore, he was a true patriot who loved his country. He was a fan of President Trump. Compertore was very excited to attend Saturday's rally, which he expressed in his last social media post.

During his speech addressing the shooting, President Biden expressed his condolences to the Comperatore family, stating that "He was a father. He was protecting his family from the bullets that were being fired.”

Democrat Mutiny? These prominent Progressives and Democratic leaders DEMAND that Biden withdraw

Biden is still taking hard blows from both sides of the aisle after his abysmal performance in last month's presidential debate. As Glenn pointed out in his post-debate coverage, Biden came across as so incompetent that it has made many Americans scared that, should the country face a major threat, Biden would be unable to respond to it. This includes many Democrats, who are finally admitting that Biden isn't as fit as they have been claiming for the last four years.

Many names have already been suggested as potential replacements for the Democratic nominee, but many people, including some Democrats, don't believe Biden should even stay in office for the election. Here are some prominent progressives and Democratic lawmakers who have called for President Biden's resignation:

These TOP 5 new technologies left Glenn SHOCKED

Peter Macdiarmid / Staff | Getty Images

Glenn has been covering some of the most groundbreaking, exciting, and often terrifying technological advances. Some new tech has the potential to make a positive impact. Some tech is just SUPER cool, like a flame-throwing robot dog. However, there is also a dark side to technology. Glenn exposes how some new technological developments, particularly in the realm of AI, pose serious ethical questions.

Here are the top five new technologies that Glenn covered that will make your jaw drop:

Anti-gravity device

This new technology developed by Dr. Charles Buhler and his team may change everything we know about transportation and travel. Described as "propellant-less propulsion" by Dr. Buhler, this technology appears to defy gravity and is potentially a way for people to travel into and through space without the need for rockets. It doesn't stop there either, this tech could be used to forever change the way we travel here on Earth.

Human embryo-powered supercomputer

To have massively powerful AI, something, which many people seem to have an invested interest in, you need a lot of electricity to power the computers that host the artificial intelligences. Naturally, this energy consumption upsets the environmentalists so in response a terrifying solution was developed. Bio Processors are essentially computer chips powered by human cells, specifically stem cells, which are predominantly harvested from embryos. These Bio Processors have a limited shelf life, meaning they need a steady supply of stem cells to keep the computers that use them operational. What could be more terrifying than an AI that eats human cells?

Voice-stealing AI

When ChatGPT came out in late 2022 its power and versatility took the world by storm. Suddenly, students had it write entire essays in mere seconds, and it was creating songs and poems with ease. The capabilities of the ChatGPT AI were as disturbing as they were impressive, but after a recent update, it took a hard turn towards disturbing. OpenAI, the company behind ChatGPT, decided to give the program a voice and tried to recruit famous actress Scarlett Johansson to lend her voice to the machine. After she declined the offer, OpenAI went ahead and released the update for ChatGPT featuring a voice that sounded eerily similar to Johansson's. While OpenAI claims it's a different, similar-sounding voice actress, the idea that a computer is going around with your stolen voice is terrifying.

Flamethrower robot dog

How could you possibly ever make something cooler than a flamethrower? Simple, strap it to the back of a robotic dog of course! Originally built to help fight forest fires (ironically enough) by creating backburns, Glenn pointed out that a pack of these bad boys patrolling your property would be the ultimate home defense. Nobody would come anywhere near your house if it was guarded by a few of these firey companions.

Wormhole-generating UFO's

It's been a decade since the tragic disappearance of Malaysia Airlines Flight 370. No trace of the aircraft or any of its passengers, except a few small pieces of debris, were ever found nor was an official cause of the disappearance ever given. There have been an infinite number of theories explaining what might have happened, but this one from investigative journalist Ashton Forbes might take the cake for the wildest. Forbes joined Glenn on his radio show and brought with him convincing video evidence that seemed to show the now-missing aircraft being circled by three mysterious orbs before suddenly disappearing in a flash of light. Does this video show the doomed aircraft being sucked into an artificial wormhole, or is it an amazing piece of hoaxwork?

THESE TOP 10 Founding Fathers' quotes help us remember America's original vision

Independence Day is one of the few days when Americans come together to celebrate our country and the continued vision that our Founding Fathers crafted in 1776. But what is that vision? It seems with every passing July 4th, Americans lose even more of a sense of what the original intent of our nation was supposed to be. It's becoming increasingly important to read the Founding Fathers in their own words and to remember the vision that they cast for our nation. Here are our TOP 10 favorite Founding Fathers' quotes to help us remember their original views of government, freedom, and the American vision.
