From the archives: Stu's Fat Man Food Review - Hardee's 6 Dollar Burger

Insider Exclusive - Stu claims to be a vegetarian… However we checked our archives and found this Insider exclusive article from September of 2002… Ask yourself, would a real vegetarian review a 900+ calorie hamburger? While Stu might argue that he wasn’t a vegetarian then, there is no doubting his willingness to pay $6 for a hamburger ($34.25 in 2008 money).

Note: Hardee's 6 Dollar Burger can also to be found at Carl’s Jr. on the west coast.

Hardee's are the fattest of the fast food restaurants. Hardee’s laughs at Burger King and McDonalds. When McDonalds said they were going to cut the trans fatty acids in their French fries, Hardee's said—“well then bring the extra over here”. Hardee's is a junk food paradise. Have you ever had a Frisco Burger there? Tremendous. A huge burger, loaded with cheese, mayonnaise, and some other stuff, on a sourdough bun, which has had butter sprayed on it—maybe by a power washer. This place is a greasy dream.

While sitting at the Hardee's on Dale Mabry in Tampa, I noticed 2 signs above my head. One said “Cheddar it up 39 cents!!” Yeah baby, for 39 cents you can get a vat of cheddar cheese sauce to dump on your burger, your fries, or hell—maybe even in your soda—to cheddar it up a bit. The other sign said “Smoking Section”. Imagine a place conducive to an individual who both wants to dump a tank of cheddar cheese sauce on something that’s already been deep-fried, while smoking. Heart surgeons must stake this place out like FBI agents do the Sopranos. I peered outside, expecting ambulances to be lined up outside the window, like cabs do outside the airport.

You get the idea. Hardee's knows how to do junk food. Which makes the proposition of buying a “sit down” restaurant type burger at Hardee's both interesting and scary. Let us first understand the difference between a regular fast food burger and a sit down burger.

  1. Sit down burgers are bigger.

  2. Sit down burgers have generally fresher vegetables on them.

  3. Sit down burgers have meat that tastes like meat.

Yes, there are other differences, but these are the main ones. Surprisingly, the Hardee's $6 Burger actually does pretty well in these areas.

  1. It is bigger. Much bigger. Makes the Frisco Burger look small. This also creates a problem however in portability. Unless you are a man far fatter than I, you would need a college course to figure out how to eat this thing on the road. If some states are outlawing cell phone use when driving, the $6 Burger should definitely follow. So much toppings and you’d need to have Steven Tyler’s mouth to fit around it.

  2. The veggies tasted fresher. This could be complete coincidence. Maybe I got lucky, maybe there was some new shipment, maybe there’s some sort of new chemical preservative that I don’t know about yet, but they did taste better. (Like you care about the vegetables anyway).

  3. If you have ever done the Atkins diet, you have no doubt sat outside a fast food restaurant, pulling beef patties out from in between a bun and devouring them. When you do this you realize that a) there’s a reason they put all those toppings on burgers and b) that it doesn’t taste like the hamburgers you make at home. It’s made of a kind of a strange meat substance that will bend, but not break. This was the biggest challenge, as I saw it, to the $6 burger. Would they be able to come up with beef that will actually taste like beef? The answer? Pretty much, yeah. It’s not as good as the beef from a good sit down restaurant, but it’s much higher quality than a Quarter Pounder or Whopper. If you are an Atkins dieter, you want a Hardee's or Carl’s Jr. near you. And if you are an enormous person, you want one near you too, although you probably moved next door already anyway.

The $6 burger has a quirky advertising hook, being that it’s the first product that I can remember, that includes a price in its title that is higher than the actual price. The $6 burger only costs $3.95. It’s like saying the $100 a month Glenn Beck insider for only $6.95. The theory is you get the same burger that you would spend $6 for at a sit down restaurant, for only $3.95. However, when you go to, say a Chili’s and buy a cheeseburger for $6, what else comes on your plate?? Fries. So if you ad a large fries to the Hardee's burger, you are at about $6 anyway. Oh well, it will fool the West Palm Beach customers anyway.

The summary of this burger effort lies in the numbers. According to the $6 Burger has 911 calories. Which is the exact number that you will need on your cell phone speed dial, should you consume one.

It’s no secret that Glenn has a less-than-optimistic view of emerging AI and when you look at the horrifying new technologies that utilize the power of AI it’s hard not to agree.

Here’s a look at 7 new AI technologies that will HORRIFY you:

AI Brainwave Monitoring

Earlier this year during the World Economic Forum's annual meeting, Nita Robinson, a professor of law and philosophy at Duke, presented a video that depicted a “hypothetical” situation where a person's brainwaves are monitored by their earbuds, which have the ability to record brainwaves, decode them with AI, and then send brain reports to their boss and are accessible by government agencies. When the video ends, Robinson makes the terrifying announcement that this AI technology already exists! It's just a matter of time before it's implemented.

If you want to learn more about Brainwave tracking and the WEF, you can watch this clip from the Glenn Beck Program.

AI Voice Cloning

Last month, Glenn covered a terrifying story involving a scammer who created an AI clone of a child's voice in order to scam money out of her terrified parents. While this might sound advanced, a quick Google search reveals that this technology is remarkably accessible and is easily able to replicate the voice of anyone. Imagine the havoc that could be inflicted on your life with an AI clone of your voice.

Like something out of Star Trek, a team of researchers at the University of Texas at Austin developed a new AI that is able to decode brain activity and produce a transcript of a person's thoughts with reasonable accuracy, all without the need for implants or other invasive measures. While the researchers assure us that the technology has major limitations, including the need to train this AI extensively on each subject's brain, it’s only a matter of time before the AI is able to overcome these limitations, and it may be sooner than we would like…

Snapchat's new AI “Friend”

Image of My AI's contact on Snapchat


In April the popular social media messaging app Snapchat released a controversial new feature known as “My AI”—an AI chatbot powered by ChatGPT. The new feature acts much like other chatbots. It can answer questions, converse with the user, and offer recommendations. However, unlike other chatbots, it is integrated in such a way that it can be difficult to distinguish from a human user, complete with a customizable avatar and name. Many parents are worried that the friendly appearance of “My AI” will make it hard for their teens to differentiate the bot from a real human. Moreover, the only way to remove the bot is by paying for Snapchat’s premium service, giving parents little recourse for protecting their children.

AI "Big Brother"

In a recent TED talk, former Apple Designer Imran Chaudhri introduced the concept for a new wearable AI device connected to a camera and microphone, enabling the AI to hear and see everything you do. Chaudhri assures us that the device is “privacy-first and safe,” but how safe would you feel with an all-seeing AI accompanying you all day every day?

AI Meddling with Elections

One terrifying potential use for AI could be meddling with elections. The last few years have seen a decline in faith in our elections, and the emergence of AI will only serve to muddy the waters. As previously mentioned, AI voice clones are here and have been proven to have the ability to create compelling facsimiles of political figures. Combined with AI image technology the threat of an AI-generated scandal is high.

If you want to learn more about AI interference with elections you can watch this clip from the Glenn Beck Program.

AI Dating

Another disturbing development is the creation of “Dating AIs”—AI chatbots designed as a replacement for a boyfriend or girlfriend. There is already a variety of options available with prices ranging from free all the way up to $1 a minute, like some sort of dystopian "call girl." There are already reports of people developing genuine emotional attachments to these bots and others who have married or have tried to marry their artificial lovers.

Global ESG investments PLUNGED 76 percent with NEGATIVE returns on investment

SOPA Images / Contributor | Getty Images

Glenn has been one of the most outspoken critics of the use of ESG by globalist elites to force businesses to comply with their woke agenda. It turns out, not only is ESG bad political practice—it's bad for your wallet too.

Global Investments in ESG Funds PLUNGED 76 percent globally in 2022 from $157.3 billion to $649.1 billion in 2021, with a 20 percent decrease in the U.S. ALONE. This marked the lowest annual net inflow for ESG funds since $69 billion in 2018.

The downturn in ESG investment is largely due to the concerted effort led against ESG led by Glenn and government officials like Ron DeSantis and his anti-ESG 14-state coalition. Thanks to Glenn and DeSantis, an increasing number of states are barring their governments from taking ESG into consideration when determining their investment recipients for state pension and retirement funds. This not only protects critical American industries like oil and gas, but moreover, it protects the First Amendment rights of business owners who don't want to conform to the Left's woke environmentalist and LGBTQ+ standards.

Thanks to Glenn and DeSantis, an increasing number of states are barring their governments from taking ESG into consideration.

However, the massive plunge in ESG investment isn't only attributed to the political pushback against the practice: it also isn't yielding investors the return on investment they were hoping for. In fact, the main ESG funds have a NEGATIVE return on investment.

ESG funds were hit hard by falling equities. One of the largest ESG funds int the U.S., Parnassus Core Equity Fund (PRBLX), fell 26 PERCENT in 2022. This fund performed nearly six percent worse than the S&P 500, which fell 19.44 percent within the same period. Similarly, iShares ESG Aware MSCI USA ETF (ESGU) fell 20 percent, and Vanguard ESG U.S. Stock ETF (ESGV) plummeted 24 percent.

Even the Harvard Business Review admitted investors in ESG have "not fared well":

ESG funds certainly perform poorly in financial terms. [...] Although the highest rated funds in terms of sustainability certainly attracted more capital than the lowest rated funds, none of the high sustainability funds outperformed any of the lowest rated funds [bolded added]. That result might be expected, and it is possible that investors would be happy to sacrifice financial returns in exchange for better ESG performance.

The Harvard Business Review went on to say that ESG funds don't even benefit the environmental and social causes they tout to defend. In fact, when comparing environmental and social compliance between ESG and non-ESG funds, the
"ESG portfolios had worse compliance record for both labor and environmental rules" than their non-ESG competitors.

Let that sink in. ESG funds not only financially underperformed when compared to their non-ESG competitors. They failed to secure the very environmental and social compliance that is central to their original purpose. Missionally, practically, and financially, ESG failure is astounding.

As Glenn has long warned, the only thing that investment firms and governments should be taking into consideration regarding YOUR money is how they can get the best possible return on YOUR investment. We are seeing the detrimental consequences of what happens when woke ideology becomes the basis of investment rather than the recipient's monetary value.

The only thing that governments should take into consideration regarding YOUR money is how to get the best possible return on YOUR investment.

If political conviction alone isn't enough to persuade the general public to ditch ESG, maybe their hurting pursestrings will.

Glenn will show how ESG is being used to further globalist elites' agendas in the second installment of his Great Reset series, Dark Future.To make sure you're caught up and to learn more about ESG, enter your email below to get chapter one of Glenn's first Great Reset book sent straight to your inbox.

You've probably noticed that Glenn is FED UP.

He is FED UP with the crimes that our political elite can get away with. And NO ONE is keeping them accountable! This corruption goes all the way up to the Presidency. Over and over again, the American people have seen headlines of the Biden family's illicit business dealings and crimes both domestic and abroad, yet they ALWAYS get a free pass from the media, and Republicans who promise to hold them accountable, DON'T.

Are you FED UP too?

Glenn laid out the ENTIRE CASE against the "Biden crime family," detailing EVERY crime allegedly committed by the Bidens, going city by city, state by state, country by country.

But we can't stop there.

Now it's up to YOU to demand that they are held responsible. Here's what to do:

  • Step 1. Watch "The Reckoning" (on YouTube or Facebook) and share it with your friends.
  • Step 2.Enter your email HERE to get access to the "Biden Crime Family Dossier" with the full list of crimes and contact information for prosecutors and attorneys general.
  • Step 3. Take action by flooding the phones and emails of the prosecutors and attorneys general in your district and demand they prosecute these crimes.
  • Step 4. Once you've contacted the offices in your relevant district, tweet @glennbeck using the hashtag #Reckoning and let us know who you contacted and whether you received a response.

Like you, Glenn is SICK AND TIRED of our government and media giving the Biden family a free pass for their blatant crimes. Together, let's do something about it.
