This Singer Told People to ‘Love and Value Our Planet’ at a Hurricane Relief Benefit

People are wonderful and should love each other … just as long as they all believe in climate change.

That’s the takeaway from Stevie Wonder’s comments during a performance at a star-studded hurricane relief benefit. The “Signed, Sealed, Delivered” singer urged people to set aside all “political persuasions” and care for each other.

People should value one another “as we should begin to love and value our planet,” Wonder said. “And anyone who believes that there is no such thing as global warming must be blind or unintelligent.”

Glenn pointed out two key lessons to be learned here:

1 --- We know from the hurricane aftermath that good causes don’t need celebrity names anymore since only a small amount of funding came from Hollywood.

2 --- We should expect kindness to be accompanied with politics from progressives.

Instead, “let’s actually love people. Let’s actually serve people,” Glenn said. If you’re going to reach out to people, you need to be kind without bringing in political qualifications like the need to believe in climate change.

“Let’s stop hating each other,” Glenn said. “Let’s start seeing that we are alike and start seeing humanity in each other.”

GLENN: So while we're here, let's talk about all of the wonderful things that Hollywood is doing to help out the victims of the hurricane.

They've just had a big gala, where they raised $44 million. Wow. They had a TV network. They had every star known to man. And they raised $44 million.

There's a football player who just raised by himself $32 million.

STU: J.J. Watt.

GLENN: Thirty-two by himself. He did that, you know, with Twitter. "I don't know, I'm thinking about raising some money. You want to help?"

Thirty-two million dollars later. You spend all of this money, all of this production. You bring in every star -- and I'm sure they all -- they were all driving the Leaf. None of them were driving anything that was -- seriously, they were all driving a Leaf. And you brought them all together. And, you know, you had the catering trucks and the catering tents. And everything else, congratulations, $44 million. What happened here? Why only $44 million.

Because Hollywood is irrelevant and they don't even know it. Hollywood -- everybody is sick -- I mean everybody on both sides. They don't need you anymore. To raise money, you don't need people like me anymore. You don't need anybody. You don't need celebrity. You don't need anything.

If you have a good cause and you have a direct way to help, you're going to -- it's great. This is technology.

We don't need the celebrities. And could the celebrities help? Yes. Yes.

J.J. Watt, he's helping. He is helping.

The problem is, they fail to look at what he did, and that is, "Wow. People need help. Let's help them."

And then, I'm not trying to make a political point, I'm not trying to make any point whatsoever, let's just help them.

Is anybody else -- is anybody else bothered, when you go to church -- and every church is like this, when you go to church, and they start talking about how you need to love people so you can bring them in to get baptized. That drives me out of my mind.

STU: Yeah, that whole loving people to join the faith sounds terrible. Hmm.

GLENN: No. No. It does to me. And maybe because -- and maybe because I've just -- I've had shields up on that for so long. And now that I'm sitting in a congregation and I hear people say these things, what it translates to me as, "How can we get people baptized? I know, let's love them."

STU: Again, this does not sound bad. You're saying it's translating to you in a way that it sounds good. If you believe in the faith, you want people to be baptized. You want people to see the light, right? And a good way to do that -- is it hate? If you don't want love, what do you want?

GLENN: I know.

No, this is the intent. Because -- and I don't think is in the intent of the churches. I think this is the -- this is how it's interpreted by some. And that is, we want to change people's minds, so let's go in and become their friends.

Well, that's good.

STU: Isn't this the entire --

GLENN: Would you listen to me for a second? Would you let me finish? Would you let me finish?

STU: Every day on the show --

GLENN: No. Let's love people. Let's actually love people. Let's actually serve people.

Now, I said, it's not the intention, it's how it sounds, especially when it's -- when it's in churches. It sounds this way.

And it's why -- it's why I think we fail. I think we fail as churches sometimes. We fail with people. Because we have another intent. Our intent is to get you to believe what we believe.

No, that's not my intent. My intent is to get you to see that I'm just like you. I just -- I'm just like you. I don't need you to believe what I believe. We just have to stop hating each other. That's my goal. Let's stop hating each other. Let's start seeing that we are alike and start seeing humanity in each other. Let's just see that, you know what, you could hate me, but why don't you hate me for real, authentic reasons. Okay?

STU: Right.

GLENN: Why don't you hate me for that?

Until that time, how about we just love each other and cut each other some slack and help one another?

And it's my belief that if you are a happy and genuine person, somebody in your life is going to say, "You know what, I can't figure this out. You seem to have this mastered. What is it that you have?" Well, I'll tell you. I'll tell you.

That's your opportunity. But we set out, sometimes, we set out with, I'm going to get them in the boat. I'm going to get them in the boat. I'm going to get them baptized. I'm going to do X, Y, or Z. You know what, do your part. And that is, love people. We're missing the love people part.

Actually do that. No other agenda. Love people.

When you love people, they will see, "Wow, I like that guy. I like those people. I may not agree with those people. But I like them." Then you have all kinds of opportunities ahead of you. Then that's the time to talk about those opportunities.

Hollywood is not -- they did not do this because they genuinely love the people in -- in Houston. Maybe some of them did. But far too many of them started doing things like Stevie Wonder. Listen to Stevie Wonder.

STEVIE: We've come together today to love on the people that have been devastated by the hurricanes.

GLENN: Great. Great. Great.

STEVIE: When love goes into action, it preferences no color of skin.

GLENN: Oh, boy. Here we go.

STEVIE: No ethnicity.

GLENN: Agenda.

STU: But, I mean, that's true.

STEVIE: Beliefs.

GLENN: Agenda. Agenda. Agenda.

STEVIE: No sexual preferences and no political persuasions. It just loves.

GLENN: Uh-huh. Okay. Good.

STEVIE: As we should begin to love and value our planet --

GLENN: Agenda.

STEVIE: -- and anyone who believes that there's no such thing as global warming must be blind or unintelligent.

GLENN: Agenda. Okay. That sounds like --

STU: Wait. A blind guy is telling us that.

GLENN: Yeah. And that's love. That's a prayer. That's a prayer.

STU: Yeah.

GLENN: That's a prayer. You must be blind or unintelligent.

STU: Amazing. I mean, of course, as it relates to hurricanes, that is not what -- even the global warming thesis says, that there's going to be more hurricanes. They actually say there's been a decrease since 1880 in the number of hurricanes hitting the United States of America. You know, that's an amazing thing.

And I think you kind of look at that and you say, why apply that there? Why insert that into the middle of this? Because you're right, like the other stuff you're talking about, agenda, agenda. You're looking at it -- I mean, I hate to point this out, but you're looking at this in a cynical sort of way, right?

GLENN: It's Hollywood, yes. They deserve that. Yes.

STU: A correct cynical way. But, you know, there's nothing wrong with saying, "We embrace all races." Of course. Those are things we actually believe.

GLENN: There's not. There's not. I do.

STU: You just don't believe it from these people because people in Hollywood are constantly coming with an agenda. And then he proves the point seconds later.

GLENN: Correct. Yes. Look, if he said -- if he said everything that he said, "Look, it doesn't matter. It doesn't matter. It doesn't matter if you have the Confederate flag, you don't want to -- or, you don't want to stand for the American flag. It doesn't matter. We have to love you and serve you. Period." That would have been great.

STU: It doesn't matter if you believe Harvey and Irma were caused by global warming or you feel like we've seen these storms a million times before and it's no big difference.

GLENN: Exactly right. We have to love you.

STU: We're there for you. And, again, it's not that way. You're an idiot. You're blind. You're unintelligent. They can't help themselves.

GLENN: No, they can't. Because -- because their agenda is more important. And, look, I want to make this really clear. Do I want people to find the joy that I have found in my faith? You bet I do. You bet I do.

STU: You should, right?

GLENN: I have found great joy -- I am alive today because of that. I would not have made it without that.

So I -- I do want to share that. But that's not my agenda. That's not what I get up for in the morning. That doesn't -- I'm sorry. But that is -- to me, I don't even think that was Christ's agenda. That was the result. He knew that would be the result of the way he lived his life and loving everyone, truly loving everyone. Where are your accusers now?

He's -- he won't stone somebody who broke one of his laws. He won't stone them.

Where are your accusers?

Does that mean he -- does that mean he was endorsing her? No.

His agenda is love. Love. And did she go back and -- and get right back into bed with somebody else? Probably not.

How many people -- we don't know this. But how many people did she change because he just showed love? He didn't stop and say, hey, by the way, and the only way is through me. He didn't do that. He said, "Where are your accusers? Well, I'm not going to condemn you either. Go and sin no more." That's it.

That's it. Oh, by the way, I did save you, so now I have to do this. Now you have to believe these things.

No, he loved. All of our love, it seems to have an agenda. All of the love in the world seems to have an agenda. An agenda-driven love will not change anything.

$44 million. That's nice. It's nice. When Hollywood stops with the agenda, maybe they'll be able to make a big impact again.

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?'"
