Deputy PM Explains How Extreme Vetting Has Prevented Terrorist Attacks in Poland

Polish Deputy Prime Minister, Mateusz Morawiecki, joined Glenn on radio to discuss why Poland continues to refuse refugees from Islamic countries.

Poland and Hungary refused to cooperate with 2015 deal that proposed the allocation of 160,000 refugees to relieve several EU members including Greece and Italy and received heavy scrutiny for their decision.

“The European borders are not secure,” said Morawiecki. “Millions of refugees come every year to Europe and then you can see all those pictures of terror attacks all over the place, in particular, in France and Germany. Poland is safe. We don’t have it.”

Poland is one of the few European countries that have not experienced a terrorist attack since mass migration from Syria and North Africa began.

“This is because we treat security very seriously. We do not allow for the Islamic migrants and Islamic refugees to come without very thorough scrutiny … And this is the main reason,” said Morawiecki.

“And in many different ways, they are attacking our civilization. They hate Christianity. They hate Europe. So, I think that we have the right … We have the right and obligation to defend it for the next generations.”

GLENN: So the alt-left, Antifa, is growing here in the United States in Philadelphia. They just had a big meeting. They're going to eradicate 21st century slavery. What is that?

Well, they want a revolutionary abolitionist movement. They're raising funds now for an underground railroad to help people escape the state because, quote, the Civil War was never resolved. And the system of slavery just transitioned into the prison industrial complex.

So they're going to help, I guess, prisoners escape in an underground railroad. And they are basing themselves in Philadelphia because of Philadelphia's rich revolutionary tradition. They are -- they're calling now -- they had workshops. They're calling the police our enemies in blue.

They're seeking to abolish all gender. They're calling on members of Antifa to steal tools and lands so they can build their own state independent of the United States. And they plan to build local defense teams and councils.

They also are extolling the revolutionary movement in Syria. They say that they are going to build a worldwide movement towards communism. They are -- they -- they're dressed up in all black. They're carrying machine guns. The video is absolutely astounding. It looks like an ISIS video.

That's what the press says is fine. Antifa. That's going to come back and backfire on them. America is not a place that looks at communists and says, "Well, they're better than the Nazis. Or the Nazis, they're better than the communists." No, we made this decision a long time ago. For 50 years, we fought this war. First against the Nazis, then against the communists. They're both bad. And it seems like you can't get that message anywhere in the United States.

Instead, where is that message coming from? Places like Poland. Poland is more United States than the United States is. You don't believe me? I have the deputy prime minister of Poland on with us. And we begin, right now.

(music)

GLENN: Poland's deputy prime minister, Mateusz Jakub Morawiecki is with us.

Welcome, Prime Minister, how are you, sir? Do I call you Deputy Prime Minister? I'm not sure what the protocol is.

MATEUSZ: Both is okay. Thank you very much. Thanks for having me. I'm very fine.

How are you?

GLENN: Very good. We're glad you're here in the United States. I know you've been talking to key business leaders and political leaders in the United States. And I appreciate you taking some time out and talking to me.

I am impressed with the former Soviet republics. Because they know what's happening in the world.

Can you tell me your view from across the water on the things that you're seeing happening here in America -- and I don't want to make this about politics -- but what do you see that is growing up within our ranks that concerns you?

MATEUSZ: Sure. Even these days, very big military exercise starting done by Mr. Putin, which is indicating how dangerous and how aggressive Russia may be. And we should not forget about this Russian hacks on emails and all what they are doing in the (inaudible) unconventional war. And Ukraine is indicating that they -- they -- this is still their main way, how they do politics.

Like today, Poland is a safe country. We are a strong country. But we -- we need very close cooperation, like we have -- we have historically all the way from (inaudible), we have fought during the War of Independence. And then in -- our soldiers are in Iraq and in Afghanistan, together hand in hand with American soldiers.

And there are all the idealists who think maybe we should not think about the defense policy too much because everybody wants to live in a peaceful world. It's great. But this is not true.

And this is -- this is one aspect, how I think that proximity to Russia, we can explain how -- how difficult it is. And, you know, the proximity is really like, if there was between New Jersey and New York, we can feel the hot breath of Russia there on our neck.

GLENN: So tell me what that means. Talking to the deputy prime minister of Poland. Tell me what that means to you. Because here in America, we've been so isolated. And our universities have stopped teaching that -- well, I don't know if they ever did. But teaching that communism is bad and a -- a killer that is only surpassed by disease.

You lived through it. The people of Poland lived through it. Tell me what America should know about communists.

MATEUSZ: Of course, we lived through this. And, well, like I myself was imprisoned. And my father who was fighting in the solidarity times during the '80s, he was in prison for a long time.

And the transformation, which started in 1989, was by far not complete because the same -- I just give you an example. The same judges who have maybe passing sentences on the -- the fighters for freedom in the '80s, like my father or myself or many of my friends, the same judges are today judges in the Supreme Court.

This is what happens in -- if the -- if there is not real deep transformation in a system.

Which is -- which is -- which was okay because there was not any bloody revolution in 1989, 1990. But then I asked everybody to understand why we would like to have this second transformation today. And why we have the worst -- the worst judiciary system amongst all the 28 countries of the European Union, and we want to deeply reform this. And then the counterattack of all our enemies is -- is so visible. And who is among -- amongst those -- those attacking us? Of course, companies. And top companies are there because they feel very well in a system which is vague, which is not based on meritocracy, which is based on corporationism, as we call it in Poland. Lots of dependencies on different corporations, lawyers, judges, and so on.

And we don't like -- we want the system to be more republican, more democratic. And this is why we have so many incomprehensions around us and misunderstandings.

GLENN: Are you concerned at all, deputy prime minister of Poland, are you concerned at all about the rise of heritage groups, as they're calling themselves? You know, the Javax (phonetic) Party or Golden Dawn here in the United States, the Nazi Party? We've got extremists on both sides. And it's in some ways starting to look like the 1930s or 1920s in Europe all around the world. Are you concerned about the rise on both sides?

MATEUSZ: I am concerned about the rise on both sides. And in Europe, it's -- it's particularly visible on the left side. But there is also some examples on the right, like Marine Le Pen in France.

Therefore, first prerequisite for safe Poland, safe Europe, safe world is to prevent terrorist attacks and to really deal with the mass migration and policy like Australia did or like America did. Australia has managed to stop the flow by securing its own borders. And the European borders resident secure. Millions of refugees come every -- every year to -- to Europe. And then you can see all those pictures of terror attacks all over the place, particularly in France or Germany. Poland is safe. We don't have it.

GLENN: Right. Why is Poland -- if I'm not mistaken, you're the only main country in Europe that has not been hit by a terrorist attack. Why?

MATEUSZ: Yeah, yeah, that's correct. Absolutely. Recently in Spain, in Barcelona. Before that, in the UK in many places, in France, and in Italy, and Germany. So we are the only of the six countries, which did not experience terror.

GLENN: Why?

MATEUSZ: This is because we -- we treat security with -- very seriously. We do not allow for the Islamic migrants and Islamic refugees to come without very thorough scrutiny by our -- by our social security and so on. Sorry about -- secret service and our special services for those activities. And this is -- and this is the main reason: Germans and French, our friends and partners, they have allowed virtually millions of those refugees. And most of them, there are many decent people, good people. But unfortunately, there are many not-so-decent people, very bad people.

And they are -- they are attacking in all sorts -- in many different ways. They're attacking our civilization. They hate Christianity. They hate Europe.

So I think that we have the right -- we are the -- the heart of the Christian civilization. And we have the right and obligation to defend it for the next generation. So we can allow for -- for -- of course, for migrants. And, for instance, in Europe -- sorry, in Poland, we do our job too. Because we -- we have accommodated one and a half million Ukrainian population. Many of them are refugees from eastern part of Ukraine, where there is war. Because Ukraine was attacked by Russia. So we are doing our part. We contribute to calming down the situation. And we go the middle road. We try to persuade our partners in Brussels, that this -- the refugee policy is very dangerous for -- for the whole of Europe. And we have to preserve our borders. We have to have safe countries.

GLENN: I'm talking to the deputy prime minister of Poland. How concerned are you that if the world doesn't wake up, we are going to be reaping the seeds that are being sown right now. And perhaps that ends in yet another global conflict.

MATEUSZ: Well, this is -- probably to your opening remarks, the situation is probably not that bad as it was in the '30s with Hitler and Stalin and the weak democracies and so on. But I am concerned that the situation might go in the wrong direction.

GLENN: Yeah.

MATEUSZ: Therefore, there is this old Latin saying (foreign language), which is, you know, we have to be well-armed and well-equipped. And we have to contribute to military spending. And, by the way, Poland is not amongst the five richest countries in NATO. But we make sure to be one of the five who comply with the two percentage points of GDP military spending rule, which was -- which was actually realized by President Trump when he was in Warsaw just two months ago. And we are a very, very reliable ally. And I think Article V of the Washington treaty is a very important element of the whole architecture of peace going forward.

Another one is also dealing with the security of our own borders, like America does, like Australia does.

But in Europe, many countries are not doing their part. So our advice to our European friends is to really concentrate on our own security and to eliminate all those extremes from the left and from the right.

Some of them, they have to be brought to the table. And persuaded in a civilized way. But some of them who are really extremists in France and in German, some Islamic parties and so on, they should be taken under a microscope and should be so -- we should be so vigilant about them as never before.

GLENN: Poland's Deputy Prime Minister Mateusz Morawiecki. Thank you so much, sir. I appreciate it.

MATEUSZ: If I could just add one sentence, on behalf of the government of the Republic of Poland, I would like to express my sincere condolences on the terrible tragedy caused by the Hurricane Harvey. So we are very sad about this. And if the government of Poland could do anything to help our American friends, our -- the people from America, we could -- we could do everything possible at our -- at our end.

GLENN: Gosh, that's nice to hear. Thank you so much. We appreciate that.

MATEUSZ: Thank you.

GLENN: We can tell that was heartfelt.

MATEUSZ: Thanks for having me.

PAT: He's a class act.

GLENN: Yeah. And I think you can hear, you know, why is he over here in America? What are they doing? Obviously, they are worried about the bear. Obviously, they are worried about what is coming on their own border. And they are looking to find some allies in America. They are more America today than we are. And they're looking for some allies in America who is going to say, "Hey, is anybody going to help us stand?" Because the big, bad wolf -- or in this case, the big, bad bear is coming back.

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.

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?'"
