Say It Ain't So: Glenn Predicts One More Obama SOTU

Tonight on TheBlaze TV, Glenn and his cohorts will watch the State of the Union in what's been dubbed Political Science Theater 3000.

"It's the four of us sitting on a couch watching the State of the Union," Glenn explained. "We did it last year, and it's the only way to watch it without your head exploding."

While Glenn has been saying this would be the last SOTU by Obama, he made an unfortunate prediction Tuesday on The Glenn Beck Program: Obama will give one more State of the Union address before leaving office.

"No way this president gives up a chance to say, 'And here's what I've accomplished.' No way," Glenn declared. "Mark my words. Next year, he will deliver another State of the Union."

GLENN: So I'm looking at the past State of the Union addresses and their dates. Yes, I have absolutely no life. But looking at the dates of the State of the Union address, particularly this president's dates of the State of the Union address makes me say, "This is not going to be this president's last State of the Union." Oh, my gosh.

JEFFY: Wait. What?

GLENN: He's not going to give up the presidency. I knew it. I knew it. Marshal law is right around the corner.

Well, that's one way to look at it. The other is with facts. I don't think this is going to be the last time we hear from the president in a State of the Union. I'll tell you why, right now.



GLENN: This is incredible.


I hope I'm wrong on this. Okay.

We've been celebrating that tonight we're going to be doing Political Science Theater 3000. And it's on TheBlaze. And it's the four of us sitting on a couch watching the -- watching the State of the Union and you can watch it with us as we comment all the way through. We did it last year. And it's the only way to watch it without your head exploding. It's lots of fun. Political Science Theater. And you can watch it tonight only on TheBlaze. Sign up for TheBlaze TV at So we've been saying, this is the last one. There's the good news. This is the last one.

Until you look at the dates that this president has given the State of the Union. Remember, the State of the Union comes when the president says he's going to deliver the State of the Union.

If you go back into the 1960s and John F. Kennedy, it was January 11th. January 14th. January 8th. January 4th. January 12th. January 10. January 17. January 14.

So in the 1960s, it was in the first two weeks of January. Then you go down and you look at -- let's just pick it up at 2004. January 20th. February 2nd. January 31st. January 23rd. January 28. February 24th. This first one, Barack Obama. February 24th. January 27. January 25. January 24. February 12th. January 28. January 20th.

What's the date today? Is today the 12th?

PAT: Uh-huh.

GLENN: That's the earliest one in a decade. Why do I say this is going to be the -- why do I say the president is not going to be -- this isn't going to be the last one? Because the last big, huge progressive president we had was Jimmy Carter. And on January 16th, 1981, he gave his last State of the Union. Everybody else gives that State of the Union to the next president.

PAT: So four days before Reagan took office, he's delivering the State of the Union address.

GLENN: He's delivering the State of the Union.

PAT: Jeez.

GLENN: Jimmy Carter. Everybody else gives it to the next guy.

JEFFY: No way.

GLENN: No way this president gives up a chance to say, "And here's what I've accomplished." No way. Mark my words. Next year, he will deliver another State of the Union.

STU: I love this prediction. So Carter did it.

GLENN: Carter did it. Nobody else.

STU: Huh.

GLENN: Carter did it.

PAT: Bush certainly didn't do it.

GLENN: No, uh-uh. Clinton didn't do it. Reagan didn't do it. All of them leave it for the next guy.

STU: So he's essentially -- do you think he's doing it early this year to kind of prep people for, this is the time it happens?

GLENN: Yes, yes. Because all of them have been in late January or early February.

PAT: I'm not trying to steal their thunder. I did it last year on the 12th.

GLENN: You bet. You bet. You bet.

PAT: That's what he's going to do.

JEFFY: Oh, my gosh.

GLENN: He's going to do another State of the Union next year. Mark my words. Write that down in your calendar.

JEFFY: Stu, what was it you were saying earlier about no hope?

STU: Yeah, that's fascinating. You can say that if it's never been done before, what are the odds that he's going to come up with this new practice? But Jimmy Carter did it.

GLENN: Jimmy Carter did it. And they're the same kind of guy.

JEFFY: And they're able to say, "He's not the first one to have done it."

GLENN: That's right. Jimmy Carter did this back in 1981.

STU: But, I mean, think of the Carter circumstance too. A radical shift in the direction of the country.

GLENN: Yes. If it's Ted Cruz, he definitely does it.

STU: Yeah.

GLENN: He definitely does it.

STU: I mean, if it's Hillary, you think it's less likely. But also, he's not exactly in love with Hillary. So...

GLENN: No, he's an egomaniac.

STU: Yeah.

GLENN: He's not going to let that last stage -- that last chance for him to say something eloquent, uplifting, and stirring, and have the waters recede after he speaks. He's going to take that opportunity. You know it. You know it.

This is a moment "Cynical Theories" author James Lindsay probably hoped would never come. The liberal mathematician and host of the "New Discourses Podcast" recently came out as "unhappily" voting Republican, including for President Donald Trump, because the Democratic Party is now being controlled by a far-left movement that seeks to destroy our country and the U.S. Constitution.

He joined Glenn Beck on the radio program Thursday to explain why this election isn't "Trump versus Biden." It's Trump versus a "movement that wants to tear apart American society at its very foundation." Lindsay warned that if it isn't stopped, the left can toss out our rights by rewriting the Constitution — or abolishing it altogether.

"A lot of people don't understand what's happening with the election we have right now," he said. "They think it's a choice between Donald Trump and Joe Biden. And at the surface level, of course, it is. We're voting for each candidate to be duly put into the office of president. But that's not what we really have going on. We have, in Donald Trump, a man who's going to govern as we've all seen — the way he feels like he's going to govern. And we have in Joe Biden, a man captured by a movement that wants to tear apart the American society at its very foundation."

Lindsay noted the popular leftist narratives that call to "abolish anything they don't like," which now includes the U.S. Constitution. He added that "this is the movement that is controlling the Democratic Party."

"It is my belief, that there has been a largely effective kind of silent coup of the Democratic Party, that's turned it completely under the control of this movement. And that's what we're going to be electing with Joe Biden. So I can't do it," he said.

Tonight at 9 p.m. ET, 8 p.m. CT, Glenn Beck goes straight to the source of the biggest story in the country with Mayor Rudy Giuliani, who takes us directly into Hunter Biden's alleged laptop.

Despite Big Tech's attempts to squash this story, there should be a mad scramble in the media to get to the bottom of major corruption allegations, but they're willfully ignoring it. However, this is not just a story about Hunter Biden. This is all about Joe Biden. It's a story Glenn has been investigating for over a year that traces back to Ukraine and China. It goes directly to the root of corruption within our political system: How politicians use their family members to enrich the entire clan and sell out their country. While the media looks the other way, Glenn asks Mayor Giuliani to show us the evidence. Giuliani details the chain of possession of the laptop and reveals news that he only had possession of the laptop days before the New York Post story broke. He says, "I reported this the day after I saw it."

He also drops a major bombshell on the show and says Big Tech doesn't want you to see evidence that "establishes with texts, documents, contracts" that "Joe Biden was a 10% partner with a Chinese communist … and there are witnesses that will come forward and testify to it."

The Senate Judiciary Committee was set to vote on subpoenas to compel Twitter CEO Jack Dorsey and Facebook CEO Mark Zuckerberg to testify on alleged censorship and bias across their platforms. But that all changed when Republican committee members "expressed reservation about the maneuver," Politico reports.

Sen. Ted Cruz (R-Texas), who chairs Judiciary's Subcommittee on the Constitution, was definitely not one of the committee members with cold feet. On the radio program Tuesday, he told Glenn Beck that he's fighting "vociferously" to ensure Dorsey and others testify before the November 3rd election.

"Jack Dorsey and Mark Zuckerberg are both going to testify. They're are going to testify in person. They're going to testify before Election Day. That's what I think should happen," Cruz said. "That's what I'm fighting vociferously to happen. Right now, the companies are negotiating with the chairman's office to discuss terms to come voluntarily. I don't give a damn whether they come voluntarily or under subpoena. They need to testify in person and answer questions for the American people about why they are trying to steal this election, to suppress the free speech, and to censor the press."

The subpoenas would require Big Tech leaders to testify on the alleged "suppression and/or censorship" of two consecutive blockbuster stories from the New York Post. The first story was about emails that allegedly came from Hunter Biden's computer which are currently being investigated by the FBI, and the second was based on additional emails that allegedly showed communist China directly offering millions of dollars to then-Vice President Joe Biden.

"Big Tech stepped in, and they've done something they've never done before," Cruz explained. "We know that Big Tech has been censoring individual conservatives, trying to suppress conservative speech. But the step they took here is, they blocked if any individual user tried to share either of the New York Post stories, [they] were blocked ... Sharing a news story, from a major media outlet is part of democracy, part of free speech. And not only that, they blocked the New York Post itself. Right now, today, the New York Post is not being allowed to post its own damn stories on corruption. This is ridiculous. It's a threshold that's never been crossed before, of Silicon Valley oligarchs declaring the authority to determine what the press is allowed to report, and who is allowed to see 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.


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.


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?


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.


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.


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.


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.


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.


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.


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.
