Klondike shocked the world earlier this week with the announcement that its famous ‘Choco Taco’ ice cream treat would be discontinued. But there seemed to be more to the story, so Glenn dug into the details and found the end of Choco Tacos may be thanks to one of our favorite far-left corporations: Unilever. He explains it all in this clip, PLUS he and the guys explain why the Mega Millions lottery (or, really, all lotteries) are a SCAM as well...
Below is a rush transcript that may contain errors
GLENN: I want to tell you, I'll give you an update on the Choco Taco scandal. Klondike has now decided to drop Chaco Tacos, and they won't make them anymore. I think this is due to their racism against those people that come across the border, or who like tacos. But they're not going to make them. And yesterday, I was pretty upset. Stu was too.
STU: I am still very upset, about this development.
GLENN: I luckily -- I luckily have a crack investigative team. In this case, well, it was me. But I get to the hard hitting facts here. I want you to know, Chaco Taco, not made by Klondike. Choco Taco is a Unilever. Unilever product. Okay?
STU: Well, but Klondike is owned by Unilever. So, yes. It's actually still made by Klondike.
GLENN: Okay. If you want to -- if you want to play these word games. I'm sorry. Inflation is -- starts with two quarters of -- of decline of our GDP. That's -- that's what it is, Stu. You want to change the language, go ahead. Anyway, evil Unilever, you're never going to want to Choco Taco again. Let me give you some headlines from Bloomberg. Unilever CEO sees Biden victory as a positive for climate change. And plans to detail the carbon footprint of all of its products, including Choco Tacos. Next headline. Meet the next George Soros. Unilever's Paul Pullman uses corporate weight to push progressive causes and globalism. Next headline, food and consumer goods, giant Unilever suspends all imports and exports of products to Russia, including Chaco Taco. Next headline, top ten contributors to the Clinton campaign. The CEO and the guy who started Unilever. That's right. That's right.
STU: Uh-huh. Uh-huh.
GLENN: He is also an advocate for the two-state solution. Next headline, UN climate conference sponsor Unilever is among the world's biggest plastic polluters. That's right. I think part of Chaco Taco is made of plastic.
GLENN: And Unilever continues to work in Iran, while targeting Facebook for divisiveness. Those -- that's all funded -- all of that hate funded by you, desiring and buying a Choco Taco. I say, I'm glad they're dead.
STU: Glenn, if -- if Unilever directly and intentionally released the monkey pox virus, I would still buy Choco Tacos.
GLENN: Yes. I'm not saying boycott them.
GLENN: I'm not saying that. Okay? I'm just saying, they're dead to me. But I can't live without Chaco Taco. All right. The next one. I would like to talk to you and Pat about the U.S. Mega Millions. Nobody won. And now the jackpot is just over one billion dollars. And I -- I just would like to talk about the scam element of the Lotto. And that is, I think it says everything we need to know about the American people. No one takes the billion dollars. They always take the cash payout.
STU: Uh-huh. Which is a scam in and of itself. That they advertise it as a billion dollars. And then there's a whole the different number for what people actually get.
PAT: It's a lot lower.
STU: This one is under 6.25. So 40 percent.
PAT: 40 percent.
GLENN: So you're leaving $400 million on the table. I think this says that the American people are saying two things. Yeah. I don't think the state is going to be able to be around that long. Thirty years. No way. They'll never -- I'll only get less than half of it. So I might as well take less than half now. And just enjoy myself.
The other thing it says, is possibly, and Stu brought this up. Inflation, our belief in inflation.
STU: Yeah. Maybe the belief that this inflation, not all that transitory. Because, you know, they're thinking themselves, like, oh. That payment we're giving these people at 30 years. It's going to be worth nothing. It will be like $12 we're paying them, at the end of this time. It will say $6 million. But that 6 million-dollar payment will be worth 15 cents to the average American today. People are like, I know what happens here. I know you're printing money constantly. So why wouldn't I take the money now, and at least get some interest and investment on it? I really think that's the calculation a lot of people are making.
GLENN: But, you know, you are thinking -- with all -- because is there a lotto winner that has not destroyed themselves?
GLENN: Somebody who has won the Lotto, and is like, I'm going to buy up a really fancy trailer now. And they just blow all their money on hookers and trailers, I think. And a nice car. I'm going to get -- I'm going to get a Ford Explorer.
GLENN: And so they blow it on really fancy cars like that. And before you know it, they're broke. Is there no one who doesn't have the common sense that says, I don't think I can manage that money, so I'll take it a year at a time. So I never -- for 30 years, I never have to worry about money. There's nobody that says that?
STU: I think some do. I don't think it's everybody takes the cash payment. But the overwhelming majority of people do. And I think a financial adviser would say, well, you can take all this money. You can throw it in investments. You can make five, 10 percent a year. And it will be worth more than this long-time payout.
GLENN: Will it be worth 40 percent more?
STU: These are people who are trying to get you to manage their money. Your money. So like, they're like, yeah. Of course, we'll get 10 percent. Every year, it will be worth a lot more. I will be skeptical of that. I would also be terrified of having that much money, at one given time. I honestly wouldn't know -- I wouldn't know what to do with it. Honestly it would take research for me to even figure out what I should actually do with that much money. I mean, the only -- the only -- you're only protected from $250,000 per account, right? In the bank. So you'll -- you'll have to do all sorts of stuff, to -- to protect that money. You would think, you're right, Glenn. Like, getting a check. I think it starts with -- I was just reading this. The first check comes at a million dollars. And then it escalates each year. I think maybe it starts at 1.5 million, and escalates each year. And by the end, it is over 6 million. Like in the end, 30 years.
GLENN: See, I just don't. So it will keep up with inflation?
STU: I mean, that's what they're saying, right? Do you believe that? I certainly don't.
GLENN: I just don't believe a 30-year payout from any government entity, is ever going to be paid out. To your advantage.
STU: Yeah. If you have a pension, do you believe, that you're going to be getting all that money? I mean, I think a lot of people don't, that are in that position.
GLENN: So do you pay -- do you pay -- when they take out the 600 -- is it -- no. $400 million, out of this billion. You still have to pay taxes, on the 600 million. So you're probably only getting 300 --
STU: Oh, yeah.
GLENN: Only getting. But you -- that's really only 300 million.
STU: Yeah. Yeah. That's --
GLENN: I mean, how do you make ends meet on that?
PAT: You don't. You can't.
STU: This is the problem. This is how they get away with it. And the -- the initial payout for the full option is $602.5 million. And everyone says, well, I mean, I know. They said they were going to give me a billion. But I'm only going to get 600 million. What am I going to do, complain about 600 million? And then you pay taxes, much of it going back to the same source, you supposedly won the money from.
PAT: Then you're down to about 350. Three hundred fifty million.
STU: 350 million. And then you say, well, I'm still getting $350 million, and that's true. However, they've scammed you out of 70 percent of the money that they supposedly were giving you.
PAT: Yeah. It's a scam.
GLENN: Can you imagine having any other product being able to get away with that kind of scam? Where 70 percent of what you -- they said, they were going to give to you, is gone.
STU: They would be dragging the false advertising cord. Like, think of some shady supplement, that makes big claims about healing your diseases. Or whatever. Even when they don't directly say it. It will be like, well, take this. And it will help X, Y, and Z. And it will solve all these big health problems. They get dragged all the time.
GLENN: So like the coronavirus vaccine then? That's what we're talking about.
STU: Of course, Glenn. That was exactly the point I was making. Thank you for bringing it up.
GLENN: You're welcome.
STU: But like, this happens all the time. People have been stopped from -- from producing products for the rest of their lives. Because they go on to shady cable channels, and run advertisements for --
GLENN: You don't have to be -- you don't have to be shady, Stu. You've got -- you've got 60-second ads. Where they are forced to say, you might die from this erection.
STU: Right. I mean, that's true.
GLENN: Wow. Wow.
STU: All of this, and they don't have to say anything. It's a billion dollars. It's pretty exciting. Then very small print underneath, it says, actually, it's only 600 million. And then you pay taxes. And you're down to 300 million. Plus, of course, every time -- if you just let that money sit in the bank. And it gets your .1 percent interest, you might be getting. When that money comes in, you'll have to pay taxes on that too. And then when you spend the money, you'll have to get taxed on -- when you buy that yacht, you'll have to get another sales tax, on top of it.
GLENN: Here's one of the changes, I want to -- because I don't want a great reset. I want a great reboot. So we just turn the machine off. And turn the machine on again. Okay? And all the bugs. And we reset to the original programming. Here's something that drives me out of my mind. My -- my house tax, and my property tax, I never really owned my property. Ever.
GLENN: Ever. I mean, I could pay my property off. But I don't really own it. And if I don't pay my income tax, I lose my house. This is -- that's a total --
PAT: It's a scam. It's a scam.
GLENN: That's bigger than the lotto.
PAT: And then -- and then on top of that, when you die, now they'll stick you with another tax. Because you died, we'll take half of everything you accumulated when you were alive. It's so immoral and wrong. I -- I don't know how we've allowed them to get away with it.
GLENN: No. And it all -- all it does is keep the people who have vast sums of money. It keeps them in power and wealth. Because they're never going to -- there's no retro. You're grandfathered in. If your grandfather was Nelson Rockefeller, don't worry about it. You have money for the rest of your life. And your children and children's children lives. But we have to stop these people, from being able to gather money and do this. You know, do exactly what we've done for generations now
