Glenn Beck: Eater X






Dan's Calorie Challenge...

GLENN: It is Friday, and yesterday we issued Dan an Olympic challenge and he was too much of a wuss, too much of a is it a wuss, Stu, or more just like an 8 year old girl?

STU: Yeah, a lot of people are just calling it a wuss girly failure is what most people are.

GLENN: It really was a girly failure. We said, you know, eat like an Olympic athlete. How a man can't eat like an Olympic athlete is really, I mean is really quite surprising, disappointing. I don't know. How would you describe it, Stu?

STU: I would describe it as expected.

GLENN: Girly man loss?

STU: When it comes to Dan, you just expect failure.

GLENN: So yesterday I said, you know, you've got to eat like Phelps, 12,000 calories. He couldn't do it in one sitting. "Oh, no, 12,000 calories, I can only get, what was it, 3400, something like that at the end of the show yesterday?"

DAN: By the end of the show I had, what, 3400, three hours, 3400.

GLENN: And you almost fell asleep at the end of the show?

DAN: I did. The milk shake almost put me in a food coma. I was surprised myself because the similarities between Michael Phelps and myself are just so striking. I mean, we're just, you know, just top athletes and in great shape. I mean, he can swim across the pool a million times. I can go up and down my stairs like once or twice before getting winded. So the similarities are there.

STU: When you put it that way, Dan, it is worse.

GLENN: It really, it is, it is. I don't think I want to hear the similarities or the differences on the breast stroke with you, either. But let's help you out a bit because yesterday at the end of the show I issued you a challenge: Okay, if you can't do it in three hours, then let's see if you can do it in 27 hours.

DAN: Right.

GLENN: And you have been eating since we left the program yesterday.

DAN: Yeah. I mean, I took a little bit of a break because it was you know.

GLENN: You took a nap.

DAN: Yes.

GLENN: So how many calories are you up to now?

DAN: I'm closing in on just shy of 8,000 calories. 7600 or something like that.

STU: 7548 is the official tally.

GLENN: Dan, I want you to know we got you a coach. We got you an eating

DAN: Really?

GLENN: Yes, we got you an eating coach. His and I'm not kidding you. This is serious. He is known by Eater as Eater X. He is a professional eater. His name is Tim Janus wait a minute. Tim, can I have I blown your cover as Eater X?

JANUS: No, that's okay, don't worry about it.

GLENN: Eater X anything like Racer X?

JANUS: I think it is but I didn't give myself a nickname. It's something you have to earn like respect or a contribution. I'm not really sure of the exact origin of it.

GLENN: Do you get a lot of respect being a professional eater?

JANUS: I don't know. At least to my face I do. I'm not sure what people say when I leave the room.

GLENN: Sure, sure. And you finished third in the Nathan's hot dog eating contest?

JANUS: Correct, yeah, in 2008 I did, yeah.

GLENN: Now see, I don't get me wrong because we're number three. So 3's a great place.

JANUS: Oh, nice, all right.

GLENN: But I mean, I'm not eating. You know what I mean?

JANUS: Right.

GLENN: When you're eating and you fail to, you know you're kind of a mid pack kind of guy. Is it kind of like you know what I'm saying?

JANUS: Am I disappointed? Is that what you're implying? Should I be or

GLENN: Well, depressed?

JANUS: You know, I'm pretty happy with it. Something where I've worked pretty hard the last four years. And every year I'm getting better. So, you know, I've been doing Nathan's, the Nathan's hot dog contest for four years now. The first year I finished ninth, the second year fifth, the third year fourth, this past year's third. So I think, you know, I don't know what your trend is in the ratings but certainly

GLENN: No, we just hover at 3.

JANUS: You do? Okay.

GLENN: We might even slip down to 4 or 5 once in a while.

JANUS: Just get back on track.

GLENN: Okay. So do you have any advice for Dan? He needs to consume another, what is it, 4,000 calories?

DAN: Well, this is the question. What do you want me to get I mean, I know what your answer's going to be but the news story says that Phelps eats 10,000 to 12,000. So I'm going to need about another 4300 and change here in calories for the next three hours.

GLENN: So do you have any recommendations, Tim, for Dan to eat another 4700 calories?

JANUS: Yeah. I mean, you know, one thing I was thinking just when I was on hold is maybe you know, I'm not sure what he's doing for exercise to burn those calories off but if he is just kind of sitting there sedentary, it's going to be tough, you know. He is not going to have quite the need for calories, his digestion's going to slow down. So if he can get active, do something like Michael Phelps does, maybe not go swimming but take a long bath, that might help him.

DAN: A long bath in I'm into that. That sounds good.

GLENN: It's disturbing now me picturing Dan sitting in a studio there in a tub.

STU: Glenn, no one asked you to picture him in a tub. That's what you

GLENN: Well, I'm an overachiever. I'm an overachiever. However, when I did imagine him in the tub, I also imagine him in the tub with all of that electrical equipment and so it does have a happy ending.

DAN: Yes.

GLENN: All right. So Eater X, is there anything that because he was going for jam over, you know, maple syrup yesterday.

JANUS: Yeah, go for the high calorie stuff. You know, I'm a big maple syrup fan. I'll drink the stuff plain. If there are no stipulations as to sort of, you know, how he gets the calories down, what kinds of things he eats, then just go for the calorie dense. Go for a quarter maple syrup. It won't kill you.

GLENN: Quart of maple syrup? It won't kill you.

JANUS: It's got to have a couple of thousand calories. There's a ton of calories in maple syrup. So go for that or go for one of those weight gainer shakes.

DAN: That's what I'm thinking. I've already got them going down to get a couple of protein bars, I can eat a couple of those. I can easily get a few of those down. Becky say we have a maple syrup jug.

JANUS: It's delicious, yeah. But no, I think you've got to look at Phelps and what he's doing. Honestly that guy eating 12,000 calories a day, as envy us as I am of him, I'm sure he gets tired of it and he's got to be trying to find ways to, you know, sort of cram the calories in quicker. So I'm sure he would be going for the calorie rich foods, too.

GLENN: How can you be a professional eater and say you are tired of eating? If I could eat all day long, I would eat all day long. I love eating. It's one of my favorite

JANUS: I would, too.

GLENN: What?

JANUS: I think I would, too. But at some point it becomes like a job. Everything that you do that you're forced to do.

GLENN: That's because you got into it eating professionally, that's taking all the fun out of it. I mean, you go into it professionally, then it is like a job. It's like are you married?

JANUS: No, I'm not.

GLENN: Have you ever you know, if you ever get married and your wife is like, "I want to have a baby," it becomes a job and it's not fun anymore. You know what I'm saying?

JANUS: Right, right.

GLENN: So it's kind of like your food looks at you like, come on, make love to me and it's no longer any you're like, nah, you want my food to kind of want me to not eat it because then it makes it better.

JANUS: Right.

STU: Wonderful analogies here, Glenn. Really you are on the top of your game. This is why we're trending down.

GLENN: This is why we're trending down.

STU: How many calories if you do one of these contests, Tim, because you have the Crystal hamburger one coming up?

JANUS: Yeah, we do on ESPN, Crystal hamburgers, a chain down South.

STU: How many calories do you do when you do one of those contests?

JANUS: Last year Joey Chestnut, I think he ate 103 Crystal hamburgers in eight minutes and that worked out to about 15,000 calories.

DAN: Oh, my gosh.

GLENN: Hello, Dan.

DAN: That is inspiring. That is inspiring.

GLENN: At what point, Eater X, did you decide, I want to be a professional eater? I mean, how do you get started?

JANUS: You know, initially I was just looking for a way to impress Jodie Foster and couldn't think of anything. But that should be like something different, you know. She's a tough girl to impress.

GLENN: Sure, sure.

JANUS: But, you know, I love food, love flavor. I've always had a good tolerance for discomfort in life in general and I was kind of vaguely aware of this competitive eating circuit and I thought that those three characteristics might make me a champion. So, you know, kind of on a whim looking for a day off and looking for something fun and different to do, I signed up for a local contest in New York City and I had a great time, did okay and left there thinking that I could do better and that I could have more fun. So I just kind of kept going and it went from there.

GLENN: How much money have you taken in?

JANUS: Each year, you know, it always changes. But, you know, it's 20, 25,000 extra. So it's

GLENN: Wait, wait, 20 to 25,000?

JANUS: Yeah.

GLENN: Really?

STU: He's one of the top three in the world, Glenn.

GLENN: How many people are in your field?

JANUS: I don't know. I mean, you know, we have several thousand on the roster, guys that go out there and sign up with major league eating events. We have several hundred people there all the time.

GLENN: Did your mom or your dad ever say, come on, honey, get a real job?

JANUS: There was something, there was kind of a Bell curve of acceptance with them. It started off, you know, they were very happy for me and they thought, great thing for a son to be having fun with. And then the deeper involved that I got, I think they were starting to worry about me. It was really only, you know, until they sort of saw the tangential benefits starting to accrue, they saw me going places, meeting cool people, doing things I wouldn't do normally, you know, being on the Glenn Beck show.

GLENN: This is a high point for your parents.

JANUS: Yeah, right. They just started to kind of come around again and they did: Well, you know, maybe this isn't such a waste of time. So it's fun for them now. They will be down, we have a contest this weekend in Connecticut at the eating pork ribs and they can come by, they can watch me and see me and have fun for a few hours.

GLENN: Let me ask you this because this is what I thought of, Michael Phelps, because all guys are like this. All guys, when we're growing up, we can eat a ton. And then all of a sudden we hit 30 and we're like, wait a minute, I can't eat as much. And that's why we get so fat so fast because I think we're just, we've trained ourselves to eat that much. When Michael Phelps decides, "Oh, enough of this swimming thing," this guy's going to be as big as a house, we're going to take him out, his skin's going to grow into his couch, isn't it?

JANUS: He is so lucky, I think you are partly right because the only reason I used to eat a ton of food and what happened was I began to realize is my metabolism was flowing if I didn't change the way I thought about food and I just kept going out there and eating the way I used to eat that I would become a big guy and so you know, I've kind of had to trick myself into believing that, you know, eating too much and feeling full outside of a contest is not a good healthy thing to do. So, yeah

GLENN: How do you wait, how do you stretch your stomach out and then bring it back in? I mean, aren't you starving after a contest or after, you know you've prepared yourself and then

JANUS: It's kind of one of the misconceptions, though, is that, you know, my stomach it can stretch and it will if I need it to. So I have the ability sort of thumbing that from it. But, you know, at rest it's the same size as anybody else's. So if I put food into it, it fills up, you know, to a point where it needs to stretch. It fills up just like anybody else's does and I'll feel full but, you know, if I want to keep eating, if I have to keep eating, if we're doing the Crystal square off, you know, and I need to eat more hamburgers, I know that it can handle that and it can stretch further. So I don't actually, you know, feel full any later than you would, but I do have the ability to kind of keep going and I know I have it. So

GLENN: Let me ask you a question.

JANUS: Yeah.

GLENN: My perception is the Japanese are the best at it and they are good at three things. They are good at math, they are good at building robots, and eating hot dogs. Is that true?

JANUS: They are very good at it, but I think Americans have closed the gap at this point. You know, the hot dog champion the last two years is an American from California, you know.

GLENN: How are they even competitive? How is anybody on this planet competitive with America?

JANUS: Well, it's tough. Once we put our minds to it, you know, we do have a great, you know, talent pool in this country and we've sort of uncovered that now. As competitive eating got really big, you know, Americans came out of the woodwork and realizing, you know, that they could do it and they began to challenge and they began to win. And there's only one Japanese competitor at the Fourth of July now because really only one of them maybe, you know, is good enough to truly challenge at this point.

GLENN: Eater X, thank you very much, I appreciate it, Tim Janus.

JANUS: You're welcome.

GLENN: Dan, send somebody for maple syrup. I think there has to be a maple syrup jug off.

DAN: I'll give it a shot now. I'm inspired now. I'm ready to go. Beck by the way, is that not what I've been saying here? Everybody's like, oh, Glenn, you are down in the mouth, you are worried about everything else. I've told you a million times, only when the United States is down on the map, that's when we hit it.

STU: So you are saying our geopolitical situation is similar to competitive eating?

GLENN: Exactly right.

Almost every week, new incriminating evidence is mined from Hunter’s wild laptop. And the proof is mounting that President Joe Biden is lying about his knowledge of his family’s crooked deal-making. Everyone knows Hunter Biden is a seriously degenerate guy. Anyone who has handled his infamous laptop needs a tetanus shot.

The salacious stuff on the laptop is sad and pathetic for sure, but that stuff is NOT what is most relevant to the United States. Glenn Beck exposes how the laptop is REALLY about Joe Biden, his abuse of power as vice president, and his ongoing denials now as president.

Now that the 2020 election has passed and their man is in office, the mainstream media have suddenly decided to admit Hunter’s laptop is not Russian disinformation after all. No one has done more research into the Biden family corruption than journalist and best-selling author Peter Schweizer. He has researched the depths of Hunter’s laptop and found more than racy photos. “These aren’t HUNTER’S business deals,” Peter says, “they benefit the WHOLE family.” And he has the emails to prove it.

But the mainstream media still insist President Biden is as pure as his thinning white hair in all of this. As Glenn reveals tonight, he is not. But will anyone in the Biden family see jail time? Americans are fed up with two sets of rules – one for regular citizens and one for the ruling elites.

Intelligent people know that wokerness plagues society and must be ridiculed and eradicated from conversations. But what happens when people lose their jobs for calling out the absurdity of woke ideology? What happens when corporations and media sources weaponize wokeness?

Here are five videos that will help us better understand a few of the many issues that wokeness inflicts on society and how we can stand against it.

Bye bye, Target. You crossed the line!

In this clip, BlazeTV host Allie Stuckey of "Relatable" explains how Target recently announced the sale of chest binders and "packing underwear" for women. She expresses how children can be negatively impacted by the sale of confusing clothing items for people suffering from gender dysphoria and the importance of loving the body God gave us.

Today, Allie notices that Target's stock experienced a 35-year record drop. Apparel was named as one of the two underperforming departments. Was pushback from critics of gender-affirming apparel the cause? It is hard to tell, but Allie encourages her audience to continue speaking out when corporations cross the line by making harmful products available for sale to the public.

Wokeness can get you fired

In this clip, Stu Burguiere covers a story about a man who challenged Black Lives Matter using nothing but data and was fired.

Here's the story: "I had been at Thomson Reuters for over six years—most recently, leading a team of data scientists applying new machine learning and artificial intelligence algorithms to our legal, tax and news data. We advised any number of divisions inside the company, including Westlaw, an online legal research service used by most every law firm in the country, and the newsroom, which reaches an audience of one billion every day around the globe. I briefed the Chief Technology Officer regularly. My total annual compensation package exceeded $350,000." Read more

Coca-Cola circumvents Constitution with TERRIFYING mandates on diversity

Glenn Beck loves Coca-Cola. So much so, in fact, that he refuses to drink Pepsi if Coke isn't available. But ... he says the time has come for him to give up his favorite soda. Why? Because Coca-Cola just announced some terrifying new company policies on diversity and equity. It sent out notices to all partnered law firms, demanding a required percentage of diverse attorneys on any legal team working for the corporation. The notice says all legal teams also must report these numbers quarterly and they will lose Coca-Cola's business if they do not comply.

"Equity is not the same thing as equality," Glenn said, adding that equality means we all have an equal chance, while equality means we all have the same outcome.

Glenn explains how mandates like this could affect everybody — even the guy working on the factory line or the truck driver delivering the drinks. Glenn also explains how Coke's new move is nothing less than a circumvention of the Constitution, and he predicts more companies (especially those in support of the Great Reset) will follow with similar policies, too.

Coca-Cola takes a 'pause' on woke initiatives after after pressure from the Right

Glenn followed up on a story about Coca-Cola becoming the poster child for how a corporation could shove leftist ideologies onto its consumers. The company suspended advertising on Facebook in a push to censor former President Donald Trump, published a manifesto about racial equity, and demanded all legal teams working for Coke meet certain diversity quotas.

But, after Trump, Sen. Ted Cruz (R-Texas), Sen. Rand Paul (R-Ky.), and many other conservative voices called for a boycott of the company's products, Coca-Cola appeared to shift directions.

Calvin Klein's gender blender ruins sex and Mothers' Day

Chad Prather reflected back to the Great Depression era of enticing photographic entertainment, otherwise known as the callow and deprived years of his youth, when a Calvin Klein pictorial of old would have represented something exciting, something to, say, think about at the end of the day. Had he run across this present weird concept at that age, he would have either been disgusted on sight … or possibly really disgusted when his dumb a** put two and two together the next day. Anyway, his point is: Has the whole world gone crazy? Do we really need this? At this inclusive embracing point in our recent history, what in the world makes Calvin Klein feel the need to be the standard-bearer for a lifestyle screamed largely into existence by a very vocal minority?

Former Disney artist SPEAKS OUT: ‘It’s time to do something’

A former Disney artist, who wishes to remain anonymous, joins Glenn to describe WHY he recently took action against his former employer: ‘I'm tired of watching my country go down the drain. And it's time to do something.’ Today’s woke Disney is not what Walt once imagined, he says, and his recent video release — "It’s A Woke World After All" — exposes Disney’s large stray from its roots ...

Rolling Stone magazine on Sunday published an article that argued in no uncertain terms that the suspect who grotesquely took the lives of ten people in Buffalo, New York, last weekend was a "mainstream Republican."

Like so many in the corporate media, the article's author Talia Lavin — who in 2018 resigned from the New Yorker after falsely accusing a combat-wounded veteran and ICE agent of having a Nazi tattoo — has painted the Buffalo killer as a right-wing, white supremacist, Tucker Carlson-worshipping conservative who is "gripped by a racist delusion."

On the radio program Tuesday, Glenn Beck revealed what the killer actually wrote in his alleged "manifesto," which proves he was far from a freedom-loving constitutionalist, and explained why blatantly ignoring his words will only make the problem worse.

"The corporate media has, from the very get-go, tried to associate [the killer] with the Republicans, to say that he's a conservative, to say that he got all of his training from Tucker Carlson," Glenn began. "But you know it's weird, in the 180-page document authored by the shooter, he doesn't mention Tucker Carlson — not even once. Not at all. There is one mention of Fox News, and it's an infographic showing the top Fox News host, such as Maria Bartiromo and Greg Gutfeld, as being Jewish. He also says Rupert Murdoch is a Christian Zionist who may have Jewish ancestry though it's never been publicly admitted," he continued.

"Oh, another thing. Ben Shapiro is mentioned multiple times, including as an example as the 'rat of the Jewish people.' So gosh, that doesn't sound conservative to me, doesn't sound Republican, doesn't sound like he's learned anything from anybody that is on the right. Moreover, he has described himself as an ethno-nationalist and eco-fascist national socialist. He loathes libertarianism and conservatism in particular."

Watch the video clip below to hear more of the criminal's own words, which prove he was no right-winger and certainly NOT a "mainstream Republican."

A Colorado mother of three, Erin Lee, said her 12-year-old daughter was recruited by teachers to attend an "art club" after school, only to find it was a GSA or Gay Straight Awareness/Alliance Club. Not only was the family misled about the purpose of the club, but a guest speaker — who told the middle school students that "if they're not fully comfortable in their bodies, that means they're transgender" — also encouraged the kids to keep secrets from their parents.

Lee told Glenn Beck on the radio program Monday that her "shy, vulnerable, barely 12-year-old daughter" had just moved to Wellington Middle School in Fort Collins, Colorado, when she was invited by her art and home room teachers to attend an "art club" after school.

"She texted us [and] we gave her permission for art club," Lee said of her daughter. "When she got there, it was actually GSA, or Gender and Sexuality Awareness or Alliance Club. The teacher had invited in a completely unqualified outside presenter who did unthinkable things with the children. I'll give you the CliffsNotes version. She told them, 'what you hear in here, keep in here.' She used flags to use defining words, telling them if they're not fully comfortable in their bodies, that means they're transgender. Then she would hand out the flags and stickers and bracelets and other swag. She told them that 'queer' is a label for when they're still figuring out their sexuality.

"She did the 'Genderbread person,' which explicitly asked kids who they're sexually attracted to, so 11, 12, 13-year-olds with peers and adults in the room, talking about their sexuality. She handed out her personal contact information and invited them to connect on teen chat platforms, like WhatsApp and Discord, where she knows that parents are not monitoring the conversation. She told them that families may not be safe, and it's okay to lie about where they are. And in fact, the art teacher, as my daughter was leaving the room that day, pulled her aside and said, 'remember, you don't have to tell your mom.'"

The outside presenter, Kimberly Chambers, is the director of SPLASH Youth of Northern Colorado, an organization that targets children as young as 5 years old, as indicated on its own website. Chambers is a paid employee of the Larimer County Department of Health and Environment with access to children’s information, according to a Parents Defending Education incident report.

Lee went on to say that, after learning from her daughter what happened, she and her husband contacted the school principal, who confirmed that the meeting was, in fact, held in secret and they are always held in secret because as a public school they have to offer children a "safe space." Lee then turned to the school board, but said she was ignored "for months." Finally, she was able to meet with board member Kristen Draper, who turned out to be a close friend and "strong ally" to Chambers. Draper also volunteers for an arm of SPLASH called SKITTLES.

"FOIA emails showed that [the school] immediately colluded when I objected to what happened," Lee told Glenn. "They immediately colluded with the school board to keep me quiet. They referenced parents who find out as 'barriers' that the school board has removed. They talked about sending social services into my home because I didn't like what they did with my child," she continued.

"My daughter had never expressed gender dysphoria before. She never expressed that she'd had any trouble at home. They never spoke to me. I never spoke to any of the people that did these things before they decided to talk about calling CPS ... In the state of Colorado, if my child had said to the CPS that I wasn't affirming her transgender identity, I firmly believe they would have removed her from the home. And the people knew this when they suggested that CPS come to our home to remove our child," Lee warned. "Colorado is off the rails in particular, but this is happening everywhere."
