What activity that millions do everyday, injures millions every year?

It's week 8 of the Fatty Five Challenge where 5 fatties try and lose 8% of their body weight in 3 months.  Get past updates here, herehere, here, here, and here.

Here are our week 8 results:

Stu 'who needs exercise?' Burguiere

Week 8  -0.49%

Total.  -5.73%

Let's be frank-- exercise is brutally dangerous.  Millions every year are injured participating in this devastating activity.  Some are even killed by heart attack or passing Toyota Corolla while running. Pulled muscles, broken bones, diphtheria----almost all negative health outcomes come directly from exercise.  (It's possible I'm just trying to create a narrative that hides the fact that I'm lazy, but I doubt it.)  Anyway, with very little exercise, I chug along on the fatty five for another week.  At this pace, I will hit my goal, assuming no slip-ups....and of course, none of that societal plague called exercise.

Week 8:  -0.77%

Total:  -4.35%

We are now more than halfway through and I’m actually not sure how to approach this diet thing.  There are weeks when I feel like I’m starving myself and I lose nothing.  Then there are weeks when I literally forget I’m on a diet and I lose 2 pounds…by accident.  I honestly have no idea what I’m doing, who to blame, how to get my hands on tapeworm (or if that’s even allowed now that Kevin has chosen the most tried and true approach to losing weight), but I just realized one thing: I haven’t done anything that resembles a diet and definitely haven’t even attempted to exercise, and I’m 7 pounds from my goal weight with about 6 weeks left.  Nothing witty to say to wrap this up…just that the last 7 pounds better hope they have a safer place to hide than Abbottabad.

Week 8: -1.86%

Total: -4.90%

One week into my tapeworm diet and I’d say the early results are positive.  The only issue I see is that I’m not completely sure how to get this thing out when I’m done with it.  My wife tells me that if you hold a glass of milk in front of your mouth he’ll come out for a drink, so that’s the current plan unless someone has a better idea.

Megyn Kelly pulled her sons out of the private elementary school they attended after she learned that the boys were asked "weekly" if they were still sure they were boys. But that's not all that this "experimental transgender education program" taught.

Megyn joined Glenn Beck on the radio program to tell the story, which she thought had ended when the school apologized, and to talk about what's next for America as our leaders refuse to promote actual psychological support for our kids and instead "parade" transgenderism as the solution to their problems.

"When [my son] was in third grade, I found out they unleashed a three-week experimental transgender education program on these boys, with really inappropriate videos. The kids were confused. These are 8- and 9-year-olds, Glenn. They have no idea what the school is even talking about with the trans thing. They got really in-depth, with really in-your-face videos — and then parents complained. And the school did something it hasn't done in its 400-year history, which was they apologized. Even they realized they had done wrong," Megyn explained.

"But, then I said to my son a year later, so did they ever round back to the trans thing? Like, whatever happened with it? And he said ... they bring it up every week. ... [They ask] how many people here still feel confident that they're a boy? Do you still feel sure you're a boy?" she continued. "This is not support. This is not nonbullying. This is indoctrination. And it's deeply confusing to the children, and wrong."

Megyn went on to give examples of how she's seen trans ideology turn "support, nonbullying, kindness, friendship, allyship, on its head."

"The absolute surrender of the medical community to this insanity is a scourge on this nation. It's disgusting what is happening with our doctors," she added. "There are people who are legitimately transgender, or who have gender dysphoria. And for those people, we should be supportive and they should get the care that they need. But what we've done instead, is taken everyone who expresses any kind of gender confusion and said, you're trans. You're trans. And we have our psychiatrists doing this."

"It's crazy," Megyn asserted. "The fact that we're doing this so willy-nilly in the name of allyship and support, it's abusive. It's criminal."

"Never forget" is not only a tribute to those we've lost, it's a warning that it could happen AGAIN. On "Glenn TV" Wednesday, Glenn Beck looks back 20 years ago to the modern generation's Pearl Harbor moment. A day of infamy we're STILL feeling repercussions from.

But in remembering 9/11, we need to look toward the future because the Biden administration is setting us up for the NEXT 9/11. They bungled the Afghanistan withdrawal, and now we have video of top al Qaeda commanders — who served with Osama bin Laden — returning to the country. But could America survive another terror attack?

Glenn asks former NYC Mayor Rudy Giuliani, the leader who brought America back from the brink. He tells Glenn about the moment he learned the Twin Towers were struck, the actions he took to prevent more terrorism, and if he thinks NYC could survive another attack under Mayor de Blasio's leadership.

Glenn is also joined by Rev. Johnnie Moore, author of "The Next Jihad." He warns that Biden's policies in the Middle East are Obama 2.0, and "if you thought ISIS was bad, you haven't seen anything yet. We must keep our eyes on Iran."

Glenn Beck and The Nazarene Fund have been working tirelessly to evacuate Americans and our allies from Afghanistan, thanks to the U.S. government's failure to do so. But it's been far from easy. A recent Newsweek article, titled "Taliban Holds Up Glenn Beck Group's Planes," addressed some of the most recent challenges. The article claimed that six planes — filled with Americans and SIVs ready for takeoff — were "grounded by the Taliban amid negotiations with the U.S. State Department." So, what's actually going on? Why is the State Department meddling in the rescue? And what are the next steps to get these Americans home?
