Glenn Beck: Chavez seeks arms from Russia?

Moscow Rules

Glenn: Author of the new book Moscow Rules, Daniel Silva is with me and I've said before, there's a handful of authors out there that I think are doing what Hollywood used to do in the 1940's and that was inform through entertainment many and there are a lot of things that people, you know, you will listen to, but you'll tie them all together, but you can't get your dopey friends together, if you are spooked at all by Putin, Russia, you can read it and really enjoy it and hand it to one of your friends and say, it's not anything and when they read it they go, yeah, most of that stuff really happening right now.

So, Daniel, you and I were talking on the set a couple of days ago about what's really going on in Moscow and then I saw a story in the paper about how Moscow is now being courted by Chavez and he's begging them, please arm me for the evil America.

Silva: You know, no one likes people to say "I told you so," but two nights ago you and I had a conversation about the fact that Russia is selling arms, flogging its arms to a veritable rogue gallery of the nations around the world and what happened the next morning? We picked up the newspaper and there is Hugo the great or excuse me, is it Ugo

Glenn: Ugo.

Silva: sitting next to little Dimitri, Diminutive Dimitri as I call them and they have agreed on a package of arms worth $1 billion.

Glenn: And by the way, that billion dollars comes from Citgo gas.

Silva: Oil.

Glenn: Yep.

Silva: Yeah, this is unfortunately not the first arms package that has been negotiated between the Russians and the Venezuelans. According to my research, they have already purchased $3 billion worth of Russian weapons in the last three years. 23 military helicopters, 24 SU jets, and I believe there are some submarines that are going to be in the new package. They've been negotiating for this for a long time. So, you know, it's reverting to that old Cold War sort of behavior, where you're going out and you're finding friends among the crappiest of the leaders out there and it's all it gives the Russians another advantage. We buy very few, the world buys, I should say, very few finished products that are stamped made in Russia, other than vodka, you know, arms of one of Russia's only true ex experts other than oil and natural gas and so they need a market.

Glenn: Let me tell you something, Daniel. This morning I got up and Adam who works with me brought over some a canister of bullets because we'll go out target, you know, shooting and everything else.

Silva: Uh huh.

Glenn: And he brought out a box of bullets and sat them down and they're made in Russia and I said, What the hell are you doing with Russian bullets? And he said, Oh, you know, Russia is big into bullets and everything else and with the war going on you're buying your ammunition from Russia. I'm, like, what are you talking about?

Silva: A very interesting as speck of the deal that's on the table and that is that they want to build an AK 47 factory in Venezuela to license the production of AK's.

Glenn: That would be perfect.

Silva: Which is exactly what Latin America need, more than AK 47's flowing around so that Ugo can sell, ship off AK's to whoever he likes and they don't need to go to Moscow for them.

Glenn: There is also two other stories in the paper, while Obama was meeting with the Lebanese prime minister, at the same time Russia was arming Iran and just last week Russia tried to buy every bit of carbon fuel from Libya. That's all of their natural gas and all of their oil.

Today there's a story I don't know if you've seen this one about the Arctic. Have you seen this one?

Silva: I have not seen the Arctic story, but they lay claim to vast portions of the Arctic. I have talked about, you know, the expansionist

Glenn: Russia.

Silva: Russia and I remember a few months ago they went down and planted some kind of Russian flag on the sea floor. They believe that the Arctic or a large portion of it is theirs.

Glenn: And now we know why and I'll explain after the top of the hour, because there are vast, vast reserves of oil now. While we're playing footsy on this global warming thing, they are locking up the world's reserves. It is bad, bad news. I'll give you proof positive at the top of the hour.

Daniel Silva, author of Moscow Rules, thanks, man.

Silva: Take care.

President Donald Trump's performance at last night's final presidential debate was "brilliant" and "the best he's ever done," Glenn Beck said on the radio program Friday.

Glenn described the moments he thought President Trump came across as "sincere," "kind," and "well-informed," as well as Joe Biden's biggest downfalls for of the night — from his big statement on wanting to eliminate the oil industry to his unsurprising gaffes as the debate neared the end. But, the question remains: was Trump's "brilliant performance" enough to win the election?

Watch the video be low to get Glenn's take on the final debate before the November 3 election:

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."
