Stu's totally out of context 'Game of Thrones' Review | Episode 2

The following is part of an ongoing experiment by Glenn Beck program heartthrob, Stu Burguiere, to begin watching Game of Thrones in its final season, without any previous context. Other than highlights shown in commercials, Stu has never seen a second of Game of Thrones, and has never read a word about its characters or plot lines.

Before embarking on this project, Stu's summary of the series was:

  • There is a battle over who controls the throne(s)?
  • Lots of people watch it
  • There is a lot of violence and/or nudity involved
  • There are dragons that fly around

Spoiler alert: you are about to read information about Game of Thrones that would definitely be considered spoilers, if it was possible to decode what Stu was talking about.

*For pictures of the characters Stu is referencing, check out the review of episode one.

  • There are 7 kingdoms
  • Someone pushed someone out of a tower
  • The open animation is VERY long
  • It also is just animation of very cheesy looking models
  • It's like the old tales of the crypt open, except a puppet skeleton doesn't pop up at the end
  • The Game of Thrones font is just a normal font with 3 lines vertically through the O's
  • Blondie queen wants guy in beard's sister to send troops, which… she isn't
  • Bearded guy is angry at elf's brother and non-troop-sending lady's sister
  • They all used to be at war, and aren't now, but still don't like each other
  • Matronly woman vouches for beard guy, claims she was sexually assaulted, and that beard guy defended her
  • That makes his previous murder attempts ok
  • Backstreet Boy in wheel chair seems to only stare pensively at people
  • Frumpy girl who liked swords with goatee guy in last episode visits dirty guy who hasn't showered and works in a weapon or coal factory or something
  • It looks really cold there
  • Frumpy girl can throw knives, wants weapon made
  • Bright red tree is meeting spot for bearded guy and Backstreet Boy in wheel chair
  • Seems unlikely a wheel chair could make it through all that snow to get to the red tree. Where are the sidewalks?
  • Bearded guy was the person who pushed Backstreet Boy out the window— I assume this caused the wheel chair situation
  • Angry elf and brother beard seem to think their sister was trash, but loved her anyway
  • Angry elf has said that he wants to die at 80 while receiving sexual favors so often, his brother finishes his description of it
  • Beard guy might be Sir Jamie
  • Matronly woman might be Lady Greer
  • Guy who kind of looks like Ricky Gervais and Lenny from "Laverne & Shirley" visits Queen Blondie
  • They used to not like each other but now do, which is the relationship dynamic of every person in this show apparently
  • Red Head — Lady Sansar?
  • Red Head and Blondie might be at odds with each other
  • Red Head brother loves Blondie
  • Blondie's eyebrows are remarkably dark for her hair color
  • Blondie is in love with John, which might be John Snow
  • They're in Winterfell. What falls in winter? Snow. Probably entire plot of series.
  • Some conflict between Blondie and Red Head about a throne and the north
  • Red Head hugging someone— I have no idea who it is, everyone looks the same
  • Little kid wants to join the war and eat some soup
  • The "someone is here" alarm sounds
  • Red Hair Burly Guy is happy to be home. He also has a beard.
  • Eye patch guy is there too
  • Whoever is coming is coming before sun up
  • The army is unbeatable except for their one weak point that destroys the entire army, kind of like the Death Star
  • Angry elf wants to fight, but he's apparently too smart
  • "We're all going to die, but at least we go together" from red burly beard guy— doesn't sound like a positive observation
  • Couple of people want to see the beach together
  • The safe part of the city seems to be the crypt, which is almost never the safe part
  • Someone killed a "White Walker" and is proud of this
  • Angry elf and brother think their dad wouldn't like them to die defending Winterfell
  • Brother of angry elf was sleeping with his sister. Which I think is also angry elf's sister
  • Burly red beard guy killed a king then slept with his wife when he was 10, then breastfed for a few months, currently is extremely poor at getting liquid in mouth while drinking—like the drinking problem from the guy in Airplane!
  • Everyone seems to think they're probably going to die in a few hours
  • Frumpy girl gets her weapon
  • She asks the guy who brought the weapon a lot of invasive questions about his sexual history
  • They says she wants to hook up for her first time before they die
  • She looks less frumpy without clothes on
  • Sir Jamie… of Lanister?
  • Sir Brianne of Toth(?) is going to be a lady knight, which isn't a thing usually. Good to see they're breaking some glass ceilings
  • Fat guy gives Bryan Cranston looking guy a large sword
  • Sporty Spice gives kiss to boyfriend
  • Persons real name is Agon Tarkarian or something— this seems significant but I don't have any idea why or what it means
  • The scary opposing army is in view of castle/Winterfell. They are on horses.
  • This is probably a lot more dramatic to people who understand it

UPDATE: Here's how the discussion went on radio. Watch the video below.

As the Senate prepares for former President Trump's second impeachment trial, many are asking whether it's constitutional to try a president after leaving office. Alan Dershowitz, lawyer and host of the of "The Dershow," joined Glenn Beck on the radio program to talk about the legal battles Trump still faces.

Dershowitz said he believes the Senate doesn't have the authority to convict Trump, now that he's a private citizen again, and thus can't use impeachment to bar him from running for office again.

"The Constitution says the purpose of impeachment is to remove somebody. He [Trump] is out of office. There's nothing left to do.
It doesn't say you can impeach him to disqualify him for the future. It says, if you remove him you can then add disqualification, but you can't just impeach somebody to disqualify them," Dershowitz said.

"The Senate can't try ordinary citizens. So once you're an ordinary citizen, you get tried only in the courts, not in the Senate. So it's clearly unconstitutional," he added.

Dershowitz, who served on Trump's legal team during the first impeachment trial, also discussed whether he thinks Trump is legally (or even just ethically) responsible for the Capitol riot earlier this month, and whether those engaging in violence could be considered "domestic terrorists."

A new, shocking CBS News poll shows that the majority of Americans believe they're facing a new enemy: other Americans.

More than two-thirds of poll respondents said they believe democracy in the U.S. is "threatened," and 54% said "other people in America" are the "biggest threat to the American way of life," rather than economic factors, viruses, natural disasters, or foreign actors.

Will it be possible to unite our nation with statistics like that? On "The Glenn Beck Radio Program," Glenn and Stu discussed the poll numbers and what they mean for our future.

Countless leaders on the left are now arguing that removing President Donald Trump from office won't be enough — they're now calling for the president's "cult-like" supporters to be "deprogrammed." And it's not just fringe politicians.

During an appearance on "Real Time with Bill Maher" last week, former NBC anchor Katie Couric said, "The question is, how are we going to really almost deprogram these people who have signed up for the cult of Trump."

Former Democratic presidential nominee Hillary Clinton and Democratic Speaker of the House Nancy Pelosi questioned whether the nation needs "a 9/11-type commission" to determine whether President Trump was colluding with Russian President Vladimir Putin "the day that the insurgents invaded our Capitol." Clinton also made sure to include her favorite "deplorables" in her unsubstantiated conspiracy theory:

"But we now know that not just [Trump] but his enablers, his accomplices, his cult members, have the same disregard for democracy," Clinton said to Pelosi.

Washington Post columnist Eugene Robinson and New York Times Magazine's Nikole Hannah-Jones agreed that there is a need for "millions of Americans, almost all white, almost all Republicans" to be deprogrammed and punished, during an MSNBC interview last week.

Now, a story from the Washington Post is also preaching that narrative and even added that we need more restrictions for conservatives on social media and in the broadcast industry.

"So now we have to be deprogrammed? We've heard this over and over and over and over again, for months," said Glenn Beck on the radio program Tuesday. He read through the shocking details of the Washington Post op-ed and discussed the extraordinary dangers of the latest anti-conservative movement in America.

As calls for censorship and restrictions against conservative voices get louder, Glenn Beck said he feels an "awesome responsibility" to speak, not the words he'd personally like to say, but those he believes the Lord would want him to share.

"It's an awesome responsibility, and one that I am not worthy of," Glenn said. "I want to say ... what He wants me to say. And I have to listen very carefully, because I feel the same way you do. But that will get us nowhere."

Glenn said it's time for Americans who are awake — not woke — to come together, no matter which side of the political aisle you're on, and stand with the truth.

"We are the Alamo, we will stand. But we desperately, desperately need you," Glenn said. "We need the people who are awake — not woke — awake. You may disagree with us. We are your allies, not your enemies. And if you will not stand with us in our hour of need, there will be no one left to stand with you in your hour of need. We must all come together, anyone who is awake."
