Sara Carter from the Washington Times

GLENN BECK PROGRAM


BEGIN TRANSCRIPT

GLENN: All right. Let me go to Sara Carter from the Washington Times. Sarah has been on this border story forever. There's been some controversy going on on one of the stories that she reported a couple of weeks ago that we brought to you on basically back to Laredo where some terrorists may or may not have gotten in through drug lord connections into our country but I want to talk to her here a little bit about what she knows about Davila and this particular case with this drug runner that is the star residence that we found out yesterday lied under oath and the Government knew about it, what the story is on his medical condition and how much free medical care did the United States actually give this drug lord. Welcome to the program, Sarah.

CARTER: Thank you for having me on, Glenn. I appreciate it. It's great.

Border Patrol Fundraiser Shirt


***All of Glenn's proceeds from the sale of this shirt will be donated to a legal defense fund for Agents Ramos and Compean.***

To quote Col. Nathan Jessep--Jack Nicholson's character from, A Few Good Men--"Son, we live in a world that has walls, and those walls have to be guarded by men with guns." That's true, and some of the men guarding our walls are U.S. Border Patrol Agents. Thing is…if one of those Border Agents tries to protect our walls with their guns, they might just end up in prison for the next 11 years. That's what happened to agents Ignacio Ramos and Jose Compean. You've heard me talk about the injustice done to these brave men, and you know that I'm outraged. I invite you to join me in showing both your anger and commitment to setting them free by wearing one of these t-shirts: "U.S. Border Patrol…To Protect And Serve Time." It's the least we can do for two men who have done the most…men with families who are unfairly paying the price for doing their duty, showing their bravery, and trying to keep all Americans safe.

GLENN: You bet. Tell me about what you know about this, what do you call it, the immunity? Yeah, the immunity that he received and the medical attention that he received here.

CARTER: Well, Glenn, I have been working on this story since I originally broke it when I was working at the Los Angeles News Group in L.A. when I did the story, the very first story on Ramos and Compean, it started off a firestorm of questions and answers and investigations that led me all the way to the border, and I've been actually following Davila ever since this trial ended and up until recently this last month trying to locate him. During my last month reporting on this story, I did speak with family members of Davila. So I knew. I knew last year that Davila was working for a smuggling ring. His family had told me that they had felt terrible about what had happened to the two border patrol agents and that Davila would never cross the border without carrying a weapon on him, specifically if he was carrying a dope load that was worth nearly a million dollars.

GLENN: Hang on just a second. Hang on. Who did you speak to that said this? What were the connections to him?

CARTER: Well, I spoke to family members of Davila, very close family members. And when I spoke to them, I used them as -- I didn't explain who they were in the story for their protection.

GLENN: Yes.

CARTER: They were very concerned about their safety, but they were also very concerned about the two border patrol agents that were convicted. They had specifically told me that Davila had been smuggling narcotics since the age of 14, that he was a middleman in a drug smuggling thing associated with the Juarez cartel, and it made sense. Look, Davila was smuggling narcotics through an area controlled by the cartel, Vicente Carrillo Fuentes. He wouldn't be smuggling narcotics through that territory without working for them without being killed later and Davila seems to be fine to this day and crisscrossing to this day across the border as we saw. He was in the United States. I reported on that first more than a few weeks ago and I got through sources that I had established relationships with in that area that he had been seen in several hospitals. The last time he was seen, his attorney stated during the bond hearing was that he was in the United States on November 6th. That would be at, I believe he was at one of the hospitals there, maybe Sierra Medical is what I recall for his injuries sustained, the colostomy that he was wearing.

When he was ordered back into the United States across the bridge, Christopher Sanchez who had originally done the investigation was asked by DEA to lure him in.

GLENN: Okay. How is he lured, how is he lured in and why lure him in if he was coming back and forth across the border, known by the United States government for medical care?

CARTER: Well, that's what's very interesting about this. These sources in intelligence which I spoke with said, well, I don't believe he was in the United States because had he been in the United States, obviously the DEA would have arrested him because at that point in time in November the grand jury indictment was in. They were ready to arrest him. So they had no idea he was in the United States in November according to them. So they had to lure him in. But according to his attorney and according to eye witnesses in El Paso, he was in those hospitals. And now we see by the admission of his new attorney that he was in an El Paso hospital on November 6th for treatment.

Now, when he was lured in and the DEA made the arrest, now, you have to realize the DEA had been working on this case for more -- since October 2005 when we see in DEA agents that they believed they had enough evidence to arrest him then on the second dope load. They had more than enough evidence but they were stopped from doing that.

GLENN: So how did he get in across this border? I mean, this is such a stupid question.

CARTER: And that is the question. His attorney never revealed that, how he got in across the border. But according to the sources, he must have done it with the permission of the U.S. Government with an I-94 visa. So either he was issued an I-94 visa by the Department of Homeland Security or somebody at the U.S. Justice Department got him an I-94 visa to crisscross the border back and forth to get to the hospital.

GLENN: What's an I-94? What's an I-94 and who usually gets it?

CARTER: An I-94 visa, if you are doing it with law enforcement, it was the same visa issued to him, a human attorney visa. The assistant U.S. attorneys who gave him the visa to come in to testify against the agents, it's a visa that I think it's a 90-day visa that allows you to crisscross back and forth across the border without escort, without escort into the United States. So you could apply for an I-94 visa even at the El Paso port of entry and it --

GLENN: Wait a minute. If you had an I-94 visa, if the DEA was looking for you, would that stop them from noticing or stop them from argue?

CARTER: Well, it shouldn't have stopped them from either, but if they didn't know that he was issued an I-94 visa, they would have no idea that he was coming back and forward inside the United States unless someone had told them or unless --

GLENN: But wait a minute. He wouldn't use his name? I mean, are we really that antiquated that we don't type people's names in or we don't have his name sitting there at the border?

CARTER: It depends on if the CBP agents at the port were doing their job, if every time he crossed back and forth they put him in the system. And as we know, I've written many stories about the El Paso sector where people crisscrossed back and forth and their names are not placed in the system.

GLENN: Sarah --

CARTER: They can be stamped through because of times and because of wait times.

GLENN: I've got to run, but give me a 30-second answer here at the most. How far up the chain of command do you think this goes?

CARTER: I think it goes very high up the chain of command, and from what I've been seeing, I think that there's a lot more to the story and I know a lot more of this story is going to come out in the future.

GLENN: Yeah.

CARTER: And I think the U.S. Justice Department knows that, I think the administration knows that, and I believe the American people are starting to see that.

GLENN: Yeah, I think American people are on it a lot more than most people give them credit. From the Washington Times, it's Sara Carter. We'll talk to you again soon.

END TRANSCRIPT

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?'"
