Stu “Red Velvet” Burguiere

Week -0.24%

Total -5.24%

To paraphrase A Christmas Story:

"Now, it is well known throughout the Midwest that the fat man is a red velvet junkie.” I have no power against things Red Velvet, especially when cream cheese frosting is involved.  That’s why the entire Fatty Five Challenge was at the highest threat level last night during a trip to a Wawa convenience store.

Of course, this had to be purchased.  Red velvet ice cream, with chunks of red velvet cake, and cream cheese icing?  And, no—I don’t care if Ben and or Jerry are willing to light me on fire because I like lower taxes.  They can be as socialist as they want assuming this flavor continues to exist.  Remember, capitalism always wins in the end anyway.

In addition, I am a sucker for new products, which means I also purchased this.

Anyway—the moral of the story here is—even when faced with Coconut Twix (which was one of the best things I’ve ever eaten) and Red Velvet Ice Cream—this stupid Fatty Five Challenge is so deep in my head, that I performed a taste-n-toss.  Yep, I did a quick sample for research purposes and then tossed them so that I wouldn’t spend the night in a coconut/red velvet based food-coma–of-regret.

Did I immediately dive in and eat the food out of the garbage after taking this pic?  I guess you’ll find out next week…

Week 7: -0.00%

Total : -3.03%

Pretty sure my nickname says it all.  The mental side of this is really getting to me.  I….can’t…..do…..this…..alone.  Besides, swallowing a friendly lil’ tapeworm and serving as it’s host for a few weeks sounds like fun—especially if the tapeworm I choose likes Mexican and General Tso Chicken as much as I do.

It should come as no surprise that a newsworthy story receives more media coverage when released on a Monday than a Friday. The reason is in part due to a large number of news-consuming Americans checking out for the week to focus on their weekend plans rather than the news.

On Monday's radio program, Glenn Beck shared information that President Joe Biden decided to release on Friday — when fewer people would notice — regarding the Climate Finance report. This report is marketed to Americans as "A Roadmap To Build a Climate-Resilient Economy." But Glenn believes the report to be Biden's Great Reset warning shot to banks.

In this clip, Glenn warned that if Americans don't stand together, in eight years we all indeed will own nothing. Watch the clip for the full story. Can't watch? Download the podcast here.

On today's radio program, Glenn Beck was joined by Bill O'Reilly to discuss the top stories of the week.

For O'Reilly, the biggest story this week centered around someone mysteriously missing from mainstream media news reports today: Mark Zuckerberg. Specifically, O'Reilly said it's the 'scandalous' way the Facebook CEO spent nearly $420 million to influence the 2020 election — and did so successfully.

On Thursday's radio program, Grace Smith and her father, Andy, joined Glenn Beck on the phone and provided a first-hand account of Grace's refusal to wear a mask at school.

Smith, 16, began a maskless protest after her school district in Laramie, Wyoming, decided to implement a mask mandate. As a result, Grace received three suspensions, was issued two $500-citations, and was eventually arrested.

"How long were you in jail?" Glenn asked.

Grace said was taken to jail but was never booked nor was she was placed in a jail cell.

Glenn commended Grace's father, Andy, for raising such a "great citizen" and asked if it was Grace's idea to protest. Andy said it was Grace's idea, explaining that they took the position of arguing on the grounds of civil rights rather than the efficacy of wearing a mask.

Grace has since withdrawn from public school and started a home school program. She also told Glenn that she will continue to fight the school district, legally.

It seems the Left wants a civil war and some on the Right want a national divorce. The country is split right now unlike anything Glenn Beck has ever witnessed. There are two sides: Those who want to fundamentally change this country and those who believe in KEEPING the experiment of liberty that the Founding Founders intended.

The ideological gap seems impossible to cross, but Glenn explains why he won't secede. David Reaboi, Claremont Institute senior fellow and author of "National Divorce Is Expensive, but It's Worth Every Penny," tells Glenn why a national breakup is not an impossibility just because it will be difficult.

What can we do to fight back … peacefully? How can the states that still believe in the Constitution create pockets of freedom in the shadow of tyranny? On his Wednesday night special this week, Glenn answers that and provides a road map to preserving what the Left is trying to destroy.

Finally, James Simpson, author of "Who Was Karl Marx? The Men, the Motives and the Menace Behind Today's Rampaging American Left," provides solutions on the issues the "red states" must unite around before Left and Right America officially call it quits.
