Bill O'Reilly fires back at absurd attacks from liberal publication Mother Jones

Mother Jones published a brutal attack on "King of Cable News" Bill O'Reilly, claiming he has misled viewers about his role in covering the Falkland War between Argentina and the United Kingdoms. This one is not going to end well for Mother Jones, an already discredited liberal rag that appears heading for another round of hefty discrediting.

"Mother Jones. Bottom rung. Nobody reads it," Bill told Glenn. "Why I'm even bothering with this is because once and for all, I'm going to put a stake through the heart of these irresponsible websites who pick up crap, throw it out there as fact, even though they know it's a lie."

"This is so absurd. We'll be able to prove it because I have all the memos from CBS telling me what a great job I did, covering the Falkland Islands War from Argentina. And, by the way, I never said one time in my life that I was on the Falkland Islands because no Americans were. And so that's the fact there," he continued.

Bill also called out the author of the article, David Corn.

"The big tip off of the article is when David Corn, who is a rank liar and a political assassin, says that I, quote, excoriated Brian Williams, when everybody on earth knows I went out of my way to be compassionate to the man on Jimmy Kimmel," Bill said.

Read the rush transcript of the interview below:

GLENN: Stop the music. Because this is going to be -- this is a very important thing here. I don't ever recall a time -- do you ever recall a time where I sighted with Mother Jones?

PAT: It has never happened. We checked the records.

GLENN: It has never happened. It's a rag not even worth your time even paying attention to or investigating because everything they say is a Marxist lie.

PAT: That's why we were so surprised at what a great job they did on this particular article.

GLENN: Boy, oh, boy. They have hit the mother lode on this one. The number one story on the Blaze today is Bill O'Reilly answering the charges of Mother Jones. Again, a complete rag and discredited rag, I might add, except perhaps in this case. They're saying that Bill O'Reilly is the next Brian Williams and he lies and makes up stuff about his reporting.

STU: It shows how good their reporting must be to win you over.

GLENN: Exactly right.

PAT: It does.

GLENN: We have the horse's mouth on the phone with us now, Brian -- I'm sorry -- Bill, nice to have you.

BILL: I'm glad I'm on that side of the horse, Beck.

[laughter]

GLENN: How are you doing, O'Reilly?

BILL: I'm good. Great intro. You know, so what do you want to know, Beck?

GLENN: Well, I want to know about this lie that you were somehow or another on the beaches in the Falklands, shooting things up.

BILL: I know. Look, you're absolutely right. Mother Jones. Bottom rung. Nobody reads it. But the internet is the big story. So what we're doing tonight and why I'm even bothering with this is because once and for all, I'm going to put a stake through the heart of these irresponsible websites who pick up crap, throw it out there as fact, even though they know it's a lie. This is so absurd -- and we'll be able to prove it because I have all the memos from CBS telling me what a great job I did, covering the Falkland Islands War from Argentina. And, by the way, I never said one time in my life that I was on the Falkland Islands because no Americans were. And so that's the fact there.

GLENN: So hang on just a second. You're also here claiming that you are an American.

BILL: Yeah, that's true. But the big tip off of the article is when David Corn, who is a rank liar and a political assassin, says that I, quote, excoriated Brian Williams, when everybody on earth knows I went out of my way to be compassionate to the man on Jimmy Kimmel. So this guy, I mean, he must think that the folks are as stupid as he is. However, I'll give the Beck listeners all over the country, we are going to show tonight a memo written by CBS News New York and sent to the South American chief in Buenos Aires telling him what a great job Bill O'Reilly did covering the final battle in the Falklands War, which took place in the Argentine capital. We have the memo. Thirty-three years, beck. And I found it last night deep in the basement.

PAT: That's great. That's great.

GLENN: It makes me say, okay, well, maybe Bill O'Reilly is telling the truth, but it also gives me an image of your home being one of those homes with the pack rats that save everything and you live in -- the hoarders --

BILL: I know you're a God-fearing man.

GLENN: So you are saying -- you are saying --

BILL: I found this memo.

GLENN: You're telling me your home is not filled with stacks of papers and you're living within jars of urine. Right?

BILL: What's the matter with you, Beck? What is the problem with you?

GLENN: Hey, by the way, I have to tell you something, when I come to New York, I have something that a friend of mine just -- just purchased that is either going to make your day or will make you weep. I happen to have a friend who just purchased the medical records and the autopsy report from Patton. It includes everything including his toe tag.

BILL: Wow, that's fabulous. It backs up what we wrote in Killing Patton. I can guarantee that. Right?

GLENN: Well, I will bring it to you. And if you would like to peruse, I'm going to give you some gloves. I don't know what you have. Brownies or whatever you have on your hands.

BILL: You know, Beck, that I fought with Patton in the Battle of the Bulge. You know that. Right?

GLENN: So, Bill, what do you think should happen to Brian Williams?

BILL: I think he's punished enough. I don't think I'd give him the Nightly News, but I'd put him somewhere else. You know.

PAT: Do you think there's any chance after a six-month suspension there's any chance they have him back in the anchor chair? Because we don't think that's even possible.

BILL: No, probably that isn't. But, again, I think they can put him somebody else. And maybe Meet the Press, that kind of thing.

GLENN: Should he be the head of NBC News at this point?

PAT: The managing editor?

BILL: Is this a facetious question, Beck?

GLENN: No. I wanted to make sure we were on the same page. Does MSNBC, do you think they will ever see the irony they're letting this guy go, but they have Al Sharpton and all those other clowns on there that lie for a living?

BILL: You know, it will be very interesting to see what happens to the MSNBC network. They're all, what, we call in the business, scratching now. Which means, they don't have any visible audience at all in many of their hours.

GLENN: They're literally being beaten by Al-Jazeera in some hours. I mean, that's impossible.

BILL: But, you know, it shows you that the American people are -- and this goes back to Mother Jones. Once you prove someone to be a liar, all right, which is what Jones accused me of, but now they'll get it rammed right down their throat. Because I have a paper that backs up exactly what I said is true. Once that happens, it's really hard for anybody to deal with you at all. And I think that's what happened at MSNBC. So it will be interesting to see.

GLENN: What do you think will happen with net neutrality?

BILL: I don't know.

PAT: Okay.

GLENN: I'm just letting that hang there. I don't think I've ever heard Bill O'Reilly say that. I don't think I've ever heard you say I don't know.

BILL: I don't know, Beck.

PAT: Is it a topic you're not that interested in, Bill?

BILL: Yeah. Really, I have to try to get these jihadists under control. Can you believe what's happening overseas? I can't believe how bad it's getting.

GLENN: Seeing it was a caliphate and I was the one that was mocked for saying that at Fox, yes, I can believe what's happening over in the Middle East.

BILL: It was the way you said it, Beck.

[laughter]

GLENN: Bill, it's always good to talk to you. Next time I'm in New York, I'll bring you the medical files of Patton.

BILL: I'd be fascinated to see it, thank you.

GLENN: All right, man. Appreciate it.

If we learned nothing from the media over the past 4 years it's that colluding with a foreign entity to either win an election or for personal gain is absolutely grotesque. Well, that depends on whether you have a (D) or (R) before your name anyway. President Trump was impeached on rumor and innuendo yet Joe Biden has all but skated on his corruption up to this point.

Below is a timeline that shows the level of corruption and the lengths the Biden's went to in order to build that family's wealth and influence internationally.

2009

In 2009, Joe Biden was the brand-new Vice President and John Kerry was a U.S. Senator. Just five months after Joe was sworn in, his son Hunter, and Kerry's stepson, Christopher Heinz, formed an international private equity firm called Rosemont Capital. It had several different branches, including one called Rosemont Seneca Partners.

2010

Just nine months after Rosemont Seneca opened its doors, Hunter Biden went to China for meetings with executives from China's biggest banks, and its sovereign wealth and social security funds. That's unheard-of access for a brand-new firm. Was it just coincidence that at the same time Hunter was meeting these Chinese bigwigs, his dad was meeting with China's then-president Hu Jintao in Washington DC at a nuclear security summit?

2011

In May 2011, Joe Biden met with Chinese officials for the U.S.-China Strategic & Economic Dialogue conference in Washington. Just two weeks later, Hunter Biden went to Taiwan for meetings with the same Chinese financial giants he'd met in China in 2010, plus some new ones.

2013

By December 2013, Joe Biden was enjoying his second term as VP, and John Kerry was now Secretary of State. That's when Joe traveled to Beijing on an extended official trip and Hunter traveled with him on Air Force Two.

During their stay, Vice President Biden met with President Xi and Hunter was mostly out of sight. We don't know exactly what he was up to, but the deal finalized between Rosemont Seneca and the Bank of China just ten days after the Bidens' trip pretty much gives it away. The most powerful financial institution in China formed a joint venture with tiny Rosemont Seneca to create a giant new investment firm called Bohai Harvest RST – the "RS" stands for Rosemont Seneca.

The firm is often called "BHR" for short.

Hunter Biden was a member of the Board. Remember, the Bank of China is government-owned, which means its business is completely intertwined with the goals of the Chinese Communist Party. BHR also got the freedom to operate in the newly created Shanghai Free-Trade Zone where, over the next six years, it would use $2.5 billion of Chinese government money to invest in China, as well as in other countries, including the U.S.

During their Beijing trip, Hunter also introduced Jonathan Li to his dad. Li is Hunter's business partner – he's CEO and Director of BHR.

Hunter arranged for Joe to meet Li in the lobby of the hotel where they stayed during their Beijing trip.

2014

In 2014, one of BHR's first major investments was in the China General Nuclear Power Corporation.

CGN is a Chinese government-owned nuclear power company that sold off a stake of the company to outside investors. Problem is, CGN was under FBI investigation for paying informants in the U.S. to steal nuclear secrets.

In 2016, the FBI arrested the ringleader of this nuclear espionage, a man named Allen Ho.

When they arrested Ho, he was using a random code generator to access funds being provided to him from – where else? – the Bank of China.

Yet while this FBI probe was going on, the son of the Vice President owned a stake in the company being investigated. And even after arrests were made, Rosemont Seneca did not alter its relationship with BHR, nor did it divest from CGN, even though it was stealing U.S. nuclear secrets.

2015

In 2015, BHR partnered with the Aviation Industry Corporation of China (AVIC) to buy an American company called Henniges for $600 million.

AVIC is a gigantic military contractor in China – think Lockheed Martin – that makes fighter jets, bombers and drones. BHR bought 49% of Henniges and AVIC bought 51%.

Henniges is a precision parts manufacturer specializing in anti-vibration technology. The stuff they make is known as "dual use" by the U.S. State Department, which means the technology can also have a military application.

Because of that, the deal had to be approved by the Committee on Foreign Investment in the U.S. (CFIUS) since it could have national security implications. The thing is, the American side of BHR – meaning Hunter Biden and his pals – had to know there were serious national security implications with AVIC.

The year before they formed a partnership with AVIC, the Wall Street Journal reported how AVIC stole technology related to the U.S. Air Force's F-35 stealth fighter and used it in its own stealth fighter for the Chinese.

How the Committee on Foreign Investment approved that deal remains a mystery. CFIUS does not publicly disclose any information regarding its decisions. Their findings are not publicly announced.

Interesting that China accounted for the largest share – with 74 transactions – approved by CFIUS during Obama's second term (2013-2015).

Under the umbrella of Rosemont Capital was a real estate company called Rosemont Realty. In 2015, a Chinese company called Gemini Investments bought a 75% stake in Rosemont Realty. The company was renamed Gemini Rosemont

Gemini brought $3 billion to the partnership with Rosemont, with the aim of buying "Class A institutional-quality commercial office properties in U.S. markets."

Red flag (literally) – Gemini Investments is a subsidiary of the China Ocean Shipping Company, a.k.a., "COSCO."

COSCO is a Chinese government-owned company. Its headquarters in Beijing is actually next to the headquarters of the Bank of China. COSCO is well-known for its close military ties. It's essentially a branch of the Chinese Navy.

2017

In 2017, BHR invested in Face++. That's the facial recognition phone app built by a Chinese company that is incorporated in a separate app built by the Chinese government. Police in the Xinjiang [Sin-jong] region of China use that app to keep tabs on citizens, and track and detain Uiguhr [Wee-ger] Muslims.

The app allows police easy access to data about Chinese Muslims including things like religious activity, blood type, and even the amount of electricity they use.

2018

In March 2018, a spokesman (Chris Bastardi) for Christopher Heinz (John Kerry's stepson) emailed The Hill to say that Heinz had "no operating role" in Rosemont Seneca, and that he was not involved in any of Rosemont's deals in China (which contradicts Schweizer's report in his book Secret Empires).

Chris Heinz was involved in Rosemont Capital. Rosemont Seneca was established under the same GP as Rosemont Capital, but Chris Heinz had no operating role in it. Chris and his family have no financial interest or investment in Bohai Harvest RST, he has never traveled to China, and he has never met with the firm's Chinese management team or investors.

2019

In October 2019, Hunter Biden's lawyer, George Mesires, said Hunter did not conduct any business on that 2013 trip to Beijing with his Dad.

Mesires said the timing of BHR's business license getting approved was purely coincidental because the paperwork had been submitted months before the Bidens' China trip.

According to Hunter's lawyer, the approval " was not related in any way, shape or form to Hunter's visit."

Hunter Biden finally stepped down from the BHR board last October (2019), but he DID NOT give up his 10% stake in the company.

When Bevan Cooney — the former "junior" business partner to Hunter Biden and Devon Archer — went to jail in 2019, investigative reporter and New York Times bestselling author Peter Schweizer thought he'd never gain access to the damning emails Cooney had promised. That all changed three weeks ago when Schweizer was given complete access to Cooney's gmail account.

Schweizer joined Glenn Beck on the radio program Tuesday to describe just some of the business deals revealed within these emails — like Hunter working with an alleged Russian criminal and with Chinese communists to secure their assets, or to secure one-on-one time with his dad, then-Vice President Joe Biden. And all of this new information is completely separate from the emails allegedly discovered on Hunter Biden's laptop recently reported by the New York Post.

"So, I want to make this clear. This [Cooney's emails] has nothing to do with what's on the laptop … It didn't come from [Rudy] Giuliani. It didn't come from anybody else, right?" Glenn asked Schweizer.

"That's absolutely correct," Schweizer confirmed.

He briefly explained how Cooney, a former Los Angeles nightclub owner, is currently serving a prison sentence for his involvement in a fraudulent business bond scheme with Biden and Archer. From prison, Cooney gave Schweizer written permission to access his Gmail account.

"This is really important," he noted. "We're not looking at printouts. Not looking at PDFs. We're actually in his Gmail accounts themselves, sifting through these emails. And there's a shocking amount of information about deals involving China, involving Russia, involving all sorts of things they were trying to pull off."

The king of "No Spin" and bestselling author of "Killing Crazy Horse," Bill O'Reilly joined Glenn Beck on this week's podcast to talk about the latest developments in Joe Biden's Ukraine and China corruption scandal. Now that some of the details are finally coming out in the open, does the average Democrat care? Maybe, but the Left doesn't seem to.

O'Reilly argued there's more hatred for President Donald Trump now than in 2016, and that some people hate President Trump so much that they'd rather vote for the "senile, corrupt" Joe Biden.

"Hunter got tens of millions of dollars from Ukraine, from Russia, from China because his father was vice president. I have no doubt in my mind," O'Reilly said. "But the hatred for Donald Trump overrides that in the minds of millions of viewers. They're saying, 'You know, we'd rather have the senile corrupt guy than Trump.'"

Asked by Glenn if any other Republican running for president would be met with the same level of vitriol, O'Reilly answered, "The Left is the Left. They don't like America. The want to redo the Constitution. They want to take some of our freedoms, like the Second Amendment and the First Amendment, and change them. And they want to destroy capitalism and replace it with a big centralized government in Washington that controls the economy … but I'm talking about the folks. I have liberal friends and I say to them, 'Do you not understand that when you vote for Biden, you're voting against your own self interest?'"

In a phone call with his constituents, Senator Ben Sasse (R-Neb) unleashed a torrent of criticisms about President Donald Trump, saying he "flirted with white supremacists," "kisses dictators' butts," and "spends like a drunken sailor."

On the radio program Friday, Glenn said he was disappointed in Sen. Sasse for apparently forgetting all of President Trump's accomplishments. Because, in reality, Trump has accomplished a lot more than many presidents before him.

Then, for anyone who may have forgotten President Trump's achievements — or who simply hate the man so much they've ignored them — Glenn listed just some of the many things this president has achieved during his three and a half years in the White House.
