Disturbing New Story About Trump Fits His Style

The Context

A disturbing article published Sunday in the Daily Mail chronicles a respected BBC journalist's documentary of Donald Trump from years ago. Selena Scott's account of her two weeks with the real-estate mogul echo the modus operandi he's displayed time again --- sweet talking and charming, followed by attacks and slander if he doesn't get his way.

White Leather & Beautiful Things

Ms. Scott described a particularly creepy encounter aboard Trump's private plane: "We were 30,000 feet on Trump's private jet, flying to Florida, when he showed me his white leather double bed. "I like beautiful things," he purred seductively. "That's why I like you so much." This must be the "sweet talking" portion of her experience. Ewww. It might be worth noting that Trump was married to Marla Maples at the time.

When the Shark Bites

Reminiscent of how Trump responded to Megyn Kelly's interview with Vanity Fair, Ms. Scott claims the so-called billionaire did not take lightly to her refusal --- or her documentary which showed him contradicting himself on his business holdings --- describing him as a shark that strikes with speed and vicious intent when it smells blood in the water. "I showed both assertions in my film with many other inconsistencies with the telling soundtrack 'It Ain’t Necessarily So'. Trump went ballistic. Over many years he sent me a series of intimidating letters branding me ‘sleazy, unattractive, obnoxious and boring.’ He said I was ‘totally uptight’, and that I had begged him for a date. In his dreams!"

Enter NBC

You'd think the media would report such a story if they knew, right? Well, they do. It seems NBC is more than aware of Ms. Scott's documentary --- the network purchased the rights to the story. So why haven't they aired it yet?

"I'm telling you, they're setting Hillary Clinton's win up. That's all they're doing," Glenn said Monday on The Glenn Beck Program. "NBC just bought a documentary from the BBC because they feel it's going to be relevant soon. Not relevant now. But relevant as soon as the guy gets the nomination --- if it is Donald Trump."

As Glenn has stated on air numerous times. The media are biding their time, waiting for Trump to win the nomination before revealing the skeletons in his closet. These revelations will be extremely distasteful the the American people, setting up Hillary for a win.

Common Sense Bottom Line

"The same thing is happening that happened with Obama, but for a different reason. They held things back for Obama because they wanted him to win," Glenn said. "They're holding things back from Donald Trump until he gets the nomination, and then they're going to slaughter him. They're going to slaughter him."

 

Below is a rush transcript of this segment, it might contain errors:

GLENN: There was a disturbing, disturbing article that came out. And it's just like the press to do this. I'm telling you, they're setting Hillary Clinton's win up. That's all they're doing.

NBC just bought a documentary from the BBC because they feel it's going to be relevant soon. Not relevant now. But relevant as soon as the guy gets the nomination, if it is Donald Trump. And his supporters seem to be, you know, like they're all -- they all seem like they're coming out.

And NBC bought this unbelievable documentary about what happened to a woman who is kind of the Diane Sawyer of England. She was the first woman on what they call breakfast shows, the morning shows. She was the 5 o'clock news anchor on the BBC. She now works for Sky News. She's worked for NBC, she's worked for CBS. I just want to read some of this.

Even by extraordinary standards of Donald Trump, this is a creepy shadow, as she says. We were 30,000 feet on Trump's private jet, flying to Florida, when he showed me his white leather double bed. "I like beautiful things," he purred seductively. "That's why I like you so much."

This was just one of the many revealing and excruciating moments during the two weeks I spent with Donald Trump in 1995, while making a 60-minute profile of him for ITV.

Let's see. It's curious -- it is a curious truth about Donald Trump that he believes the more obnoxious he is, the more successful he becomes. Intimidation is a brutal weapon he's used all his life when sweet-talking fails to get his way.

Now, remember what I posted last week. I said, "He first sweet-talks. He tries to charm you into it. Then he starts to brutalize you. He starts to scare you. And then if you don't give up, he takes you out." Remember? I said, "That's who this man is."

So it comes as no surprise to me that this is a tactic that he uses to such an effect in the strangest wooing of American electorate in the nation's history. The more he trashes people in America, the higher his approval ratings. When he insults Mexicans, calls for a ban on Muslims, disrespects women, and declares that he will bomb the crap out of the Islamic State, the cheers go up.

Every time a commentator says he's gone too far, he proves he has found the direct link to the dark heart of the American psyche. As Iowa citizens vote in the first ballot to determine the Republican candidate for the White House, many are asking, "Who is the real Donald Trump? Is he a regular guy who speaks the truth as he sees it, or a bigmouth who appears to think he's the star of a reality TV show?" I think I have a unique perspective. She writes, "Trump is a shark. A shark has no yesterday and no tomorrow, just the next meal, the next victim to be destroyed and consumed. And a shark must keep moving or die. That's Trump. And let me tell you why I feel that."

Now, again, this is a BBC anchor.

I would like to say it would be easy to have been overwhelmed by the tidal wave of flattery and attention I received from Trump when I arrived in New York to make a documentary about the man now dividing America with his rhetoric. Checking into my suite at the exclusive Plaza Hotel, which Trump then owned, overlooking Central Park, I was greeted by a forest of blood red roses, with a tasteful, handwritten note that simply said, "Donald."

Later that day, I went in to meet Trump at his Manhattan office, and his secretary Norma had been well briefed. Although we had never met, she welcomed me as, quote, her dear, dear friend.

She ushered me into his paneled board room, high above the city with magnificent views of the skyline, where I was greeted, not just by Trump, but by a falex (phonetic) of suited male business associates.

"Gentlemen," said Trump, "I'd like you to meet our new partner in the deal, the legendary Selina Scott."

Now, I prided myself on being a pragmatic interviewer, well-versed in the wiles of those seeking to make favorable impressions on the camera. But now I was beginning to feel a little uneasy. As I was paraded before Trump's grinning acolytes, these words began to swim in my head, "Partner in the deal? What did that mean? Did he think that he had won me over and I was somehow incorporated into his publicity department, already wrapped up into his deluded sense of his own wonderfulness?"

Trump was turning on the full wattage of what he perceived to be his irresistible charm to women, but there was a great deal more of his theatricality to come. As viewer of last week's Channel 4 documentary, The Madness of Donald Trump would have seen, the station broadcasted an embarrassing clip of him dancing around me saying, "Isn't she beautiful? She doesn't think she's beautiful, but she's beautiful," as the camera caught me grimacing.

Now, think of this. This is from a British newspaper. The BBC aired this documentary last week. NBC has purchased it. But they're holding it back. Why?

PAT: It's unbelievable.

GLENN: How can the British press -- the same thing is happening that happened with Obama, but for a different reason. They held things back for Obama because they happened him to win. They're holding things back from Donald Trump until he gets the nomination, and then they're going to slaughter him. They're going to slaughter him.

This flattery came shortly after our first meeting and it was swiftly followed by Trump announcing, "She shares with Larry King an ability to charm and cajole you into revealing more than you intended, and she's also a lot better looking."

During the two weeks I spent with Trump, there would be helicopter rides over Manhattan, private jet flights on his lavish oceanside Florida estate, a trophy property once owned by one of the richest women in America. He invited me to a poolside party, boasted about his great skills as a billionaire businessman, and most tellingly, introduced me to the two most important women in his life, his then wife Marla and his mother Mary.

I believe it's not not too fanciful to suggest that the key to understanding Trump is his attitude toward women. As Megyn Kelly, the Fox News host, discovered when she asked him about his attitude to women, where he called women that he doesn't like fat pigs, dogs, slobs, and disgusting animals, the oily smile is replaced with a deep well of hate if he feels he has not emotionally seduced you.

This is true. This is absolutely true

PAT: Oh, yeah. No doubt about it.

GLENN: And Megyn Kelly, this is what's happening to Megyn Kelly. I know. I've been there. My 60-minute documentary exposed how through bluff, bombast, and braggadocio -- how do you say that?

PAT: Braggadocio.

GLENN: -- braggadocio, he had convinced the American business community he was far richer than he was. And that while the rest of his rivals were losers, he knew how to make the US great. This ability to blag people into believing that he was a commercial genius was vividly illustrated in a helicopter ride we took over New York.

Pointing to the Empire State Building, he said he owned it.

I asked, what? All of it?

Yep. 100 percent, he replied.

Later, forgetting that he had told me he wholly owned the building, he told me he owned 50 percent of it, which was greatly reduced. It was the same story with the Trump Taj Mahal Casino in Atlanta City. Wholly owned by me, he said. Are you sure, I asked. Well, maybe 80 percent, he demurred. Are you quite sure, I pressed. He replied, well, actually, it's 50 percent.

I showed both assertions in my film, with other inconsistencies, with the telling soundtrack It Ain't Necessarily So. Well, trump went ballistic. Over the many years, he sent me -- now, this is exactly what Megyn Kelly said is happening. Listen to this.

Over in years he sent me a series of intimidating letters branding me as sleazy, unattractive, obnoxious, and boring. He said I was totally uptight and that I had begged him for a date.

This vicious tirade was often accompanied by a fanzine newspaper cutting, which he purported to show how much money he was making. He scrawled across the top, "Selina, you're a major loser. Dear Selina, I hear your career is going terribly."

JEFFY: This guy, man.

PAT: Sound familiar?

GLENN: This is it.

PAT: You've been through it. Megyn Kelly is going through it.

GLENN: This is everybody who stands against him is going through it. This is his MO. I'm telling you, the guy is very dangerous.

In the meantime --

PAT: It's to the point of almost a psychosis.

GLENN: No, I think he is. I think there's psychosis. There's deep issues here.

This broadside was in stark contrast to the creepy chat-up line he deployed on the Trump jet where he showed me his bedroom. Later in the same plane, he persuaded Ruby Wax to rubbish me on the gray, while she tried to ingratiate herself with him. This harassment only stopped when I threatened to take legal action for stalking.

I return to my shark analogy: When a shark smells blood in the water, it strikes with speed and vicious intent. So with Trump. Any sign of vulnerability is exploited. He only understands when force is met with force.

Now, think of that. This is a guy who is going to be in charge of the nuclear codes.

PAT: Think of that too with Carly Fiorina and how she shut him down. I mean, she just --

JEFFY: Yeah.

PAT: Hit him in the face in that debate, and he stopped from that point on because he realized he wasn't going to get away with that with her. So when you smack him in the face like any other bully, he skulks off and tries it with someone else.

GLENN: So it's with some amusement that twenty years after I made that film, the giant NBC network in America has asked to buy my channel for interview about Trump, including all of the unused footage.

STU: Gee.

JEFFY: Oh, my gosh.

STU: What are they going to find in there? Times 20,000 documentaries this guy has done with different news people around the world, all the times he's been in front of the camera, all the unused footage. Gee, what are they going to do if this guy gets to the general? They're going to have a staff of 100 people for each one of them, going through all the footage, hundreds and hundreds and hundreds of hours that Donald Trump has forgotten about.

GLENN: Did anybody watch the documentary from Scotland?

STU: You've Been Trumped, or whatever? I actually haven't seen it.

GLENN: You have to watch it. It's unbelievable. He is -- it's this -- it's like this little seaside community, and he wanted to build a golf course. And it's this little seaside community. And first he goes in and he tries to buy all the old ladies flowers, and he's like, "Oh, you're so great. And, hey, can I buy your house?"

PAT: Like with Vera Coking.

JEFFY: Like everyone else.

GLENN: He does the same thing. He wined and dined everybody and said it's going to be great. And I'll find a great place -- I'll buy your house so you can find a really great place to live.

Well, this little seaside community, these are all people that have lived there -- like a lot of them are old ladies that have lived there since World War II. It's their husband -- their family was raised there. And it's a farming community. It's just this little sheep-farming community right on the seaside. It's beautiful.

Well, once they said no, he started trashing them. And saying that they were pigs. They lived like pigs. They were insane. They should be institutionalized. They're just -- they've lost all reason. Just trashed them.

PAT: Oh, man.

GLENN: And it's all on tape. And this documentary shows him saying these things and these little old ladies going, "I don't think I live like a pig."

(laughter)

When America sees this stuff, it's going to be lights out. And if you think the media is not going to play that, you're crazy.

STU: Yeah, and that was the most effective negative about Donald Trump that they tested in the Des Moines Register Poll was his use of eminent domain, taking people's private property for his own personal gain. In fact, they even used it as -- they included for government purposes. So like a -- a road or -- they made it actually more broad than the way that Trump wants to use it, which is specifically he tried to use it for his own personal gain and supported the Kelo decision which was, "Oh, well. Well, then the government can get more tax dollars, so it's okay to take people's private property."

The biggest negative that was tested out of all of them on Donald Trump. People inherently know that that's an absurd stance, that you would be able to take someone's stuff that they own, that they had built their whole lives in this community, and because he wants to build a golf course or a parking lot, that he should be able to come in with the power of the government and take it from them. And he still supports that to this day. It's not an old stance.

JEFFY: Well, what if they live like pigs.

STU: They live like pigs.

PAT: They live like pigs. They need to move.

GLENN: You're right. They should be -- you know what, they should come up and have to stand before a board and explain themselves: Sir or madam, what is it that you have contributed to society? And if they can't explain themselves, then we shouldn't keep them alive. I'm sorry.

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.

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.
