Chaos Comes From Having No Absolutes (We've Been Teaching Kids There Are None for Decades)

Editor's Note: The following is based on Glenn's monologue from May 17, 2017.

Talk about fast and furious. News is breaking so fast and so furiously on President Trump that many people aren't getting the facts. They don't even know what's happening. We're going to give you those facts to help you understand the world we're living in right now, but more importantly, I want to start with trying to understand you. Nobody in the media understands you. Do I? I want to make sure that we're on the same page so that I can better serve you and figure out the things you're trying to understand.

Historic Times

We are living truly in a pivot point of history. Yesterday, I looked at the team and said, "I can't believe we are living in these times and we have a first row seat at the events of our day. This is an amazing time to be alive." We're going to be remembered for this time in history --- what we did and what we said.

One of the things people will talk about is "climate chaos." We're going on vacation next week, up to the mountains and just getting away from it all. My wife came into the closet and showed me the weather forecast. It's snowing in the mountains. (She's not happy. She's a sun worshiper.) Just this morning in Dallas, it was raining. Climate chaos! It's raining in Dallas, snowing in the mountains, hot in Florida. Yeah, it's always like that. That's not chaos. You want to know what chaos is? It's what we're living right now.

We are truly living in a world of chaos. Watch the news and try to make sense of it. Who do you trust? What institutions do you trust? What do you know is true, really true?

Remember I said to you years ago --- and it seemed crazy to say it --- everything you believe in will violated. Everything you think is solid will be liquid, and everything liquid will be solid. The world will be upside down and inside out, and you won't recognize anything.

Climate chaos? No. The chaos is not caused by the climate.

The Real Chaos

You're causing the earth to die because of your SUV --- and yet --- we have to have those SUVs. We have to have General Motors. We have to keep these companies going. Let's bail them out to make sure they can make more trucks and SUVs while, at the same time, we're told by the same people those trucks and SUVs are evil, oil is evil. (Oil --- petroleum jelly --- changed the world. You don't have oil, you don't have petroleum. You don't have petroleum, you don't have a sewing machine or a cotton gin that works for long.) Chaos.

Chaos comes from paying a tax on something that has now been deemed evil. We all went to school and learned that what we breathe out is what trees breathe in. Now our breathing is supposed to be killing the planet, killing the trees. How is that possible? Chaos.

How many genders are there? If you're like most people, you're probably thinking two, right? Wrong. Despite the solid, scientific evidence, we're supposed to believe there are more than 90 now. Chaos.

Can a white woman identify as a black woman and work for the NAACP? No, of course no!. Well, wait, yes. That actually happened, and the left held her up. Chaos.

If you're white, you can't even talk about slavery because you can't relate to slavery. Even if you were born and raised in the same town as someone who is black --- went to the same school, graduated in the same class as you --- they can understand it, but you can't. Chaos.

Two plus two equals five. It's math, no it doesn't. Yes, it does . . . if you can show me how you got there. Chaos.

We have to print more money to make our dollar sound. What? We have to spend more money to get out of debt. What? $17 trillion isn't un-American, but a debt of $9 trillion certainly is. Chaos.

Which bathroom do I use? Which bathroom is she or he allowed to use? I'm sorry I said she or he. I don't know which one you're identifying as today --- a man or a woman? If you're identifying as a woman, but you're a man and I open the door for you, am I going to be called a sexist? If you're obviously a very manly looking man and you're wearing a dress, I'm going to notice you, but I'm going to be called a hater for even noticing that. At the same time, we're taught, if you see something, say something. Chaos.

Our eyes, ears and every statistic proves that those who kill or die while shouting "praise Allah" follow an evil form of Islam. But we're told they're simply practicing what God has told them to do, they're misunderstood. You're the one who has all the hate --- even though you're the one who will gladly live side-by-side, respectfully with anyone as long as they show the same respect in return. Chaos.

We can't use the same words anymore. Chaos. There are no rules to anything. Chaos. Nothing is consistent, ever. It just depends on who is in charge and who is in power. Chaos.

Agree or be silenced. Agree or be fired. Agree and promote or be shunned.

Nobody can function in that.

False Gods

Who are our heroes today? Every single hero has been mocked, ridiculed and explained away. Our faith is mocked. Our media, who are supposed to stand guard for us, against corruption, seem to stand guard against us --- against our beliefs, our traditions, our institutions. In fact, many of them came from the same places as us, but they no longer even like us or understand us.

Our money isn't safe in banks anymore. Wall Street is getting rich while your wage hasn't gone up, in some cases since September 11. Politicians are getting rich off things that would put us in jail. Charlie Rangel entered Congress poor after serving in the Army. He now has houses all over the world. He's wealthy. How did that happen in the service of his country? He's not alone; I don't mean to stick it to him. They're all like that, or at least a lot of them. They have better health care while we can't keep our doctors.

So what do we do?

We retreat to the things that we know we can trust like our churches. Yet when we get into our churches, we're surrounded by judgment and not people who actually care, people who are telling us they're better than us. Don't do these things. But they do them.

Our doctors prescribe drugs for our children to control the things that make them children. They give us painkillers, and we think it's okay because the doctor prescribed it. Try as we might, we can't get off those painkillers. In the end, the withdrawal is worse than symptoms. Our doctors say marijuana oil is a natural solution, but the government won't let us have a natural solution that doesn't get you high. They'd rather we be on opioids, which are killing us.

The Forecast

I got up this morning, started with the weather forecast and thought, how do I explain the world to my audience? How do I tell you what's going on when I'm not even sure I know who you are?

I don't know how you feel, but I feel like we're living in a world of chaos --- and it's important to point that out because when the rules don't apply equally, it causes tension.

Our kids are in a sea of culture that I don't understand, without any morals or boundaries. Suicide with millennials is up 30 percent. There are somewhere between 20 and 40 service men who come home and kill themselves every single day. The VA is failing them, putting them on more drugs. And those people in Washington who are in power are creating the same VA nightmare for us.

The former Soviet Union is now led by a strongman, former KGB colonel. He came in as a poor KGB colonel, and is now one of the richest men in the world. To a lot of people, he looks like a good guy.

Up is down. Down is up. Good is being made evil. Evil is good. And it seems as though nobody gets it.

You don't feel heard. You don't feel like anybody is really listening to you. I'll bet you many feel like nobody even sees you anymore, and if they do, they don't really care. They're just trying to make money off of you or trying to increase their power. Yeah, yeah, I've tried. Let's take our country back. I was called names. I wore myself out, and it didn't make any difference.

Donald Trump got it. He knew that the real trouble was coming from this cultural chaos, even if he couldn't say it. The press, the universities, the schools that have indoctrinated our children, saying fingers are guns. He knew we needed the Supreme Court, or we wouldn't stand a chance. He gave us that. You don't agree with everything he says, but at least he's swimming the other way. Really? Now he's surrounded by people who have a career in DC. The media has always hated him --- and he's alone. We knew this would happen. Never let a guy like that be president. They'd never let that happen.

Everything I thought I could trust has betrayed me, and now I'm alone --- but I'm going down swinging.

That's how this chaos makes me feel. How about you? Am I even close?

Listen to this segment from The Glenn Beck Program:

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.
