Glenn talks with Scott Baker of Breitbart TV




Scott Baker from Breitbart TV

GLENN: All right. So Scott, help me out on, we talked about Scott is from Breitbart TV. Help me out on exactly what you're looking at and take us through the path as easily as you can here.

BAKER: Absolutely. Let's go back to the beginning.

GLENN: Okay. We were looking

BAKER: In the beginning.

GLENN: And the reason we were starting this conversation is because of Van Jones. How did this guy get into office? How did Valerie Jarrett, she said she had been following. Is she a radical? Who is Valerie Jarrett in the White House?

BAKER: Right.

GLENN: What is her connection to all of this?

BAKER: I think we all started to think is this guy just a goof ball, you know, but I really paid attention to the words that Charles Krauthammer said a week ago on Fox News. He said this Van Jones debacle is a reflection of the boss, and the boss' radical relationships over decades. And, you know, you say how did this guy become, using Krauthammer's words, perfectly mainstream to them. Because clearly, I mean, if you are out there and you're saying, you know, I believe Bush may have helped create 9/11, there are radicals.

GLENN: Right. But these guys, these guys don't think that they are I think they were shocked. What? He's fine. I mean, you see it from the lefty blogs and the Huffington Post. You see it from the Center of American Progress. They immediately embraced him like, come on, man, come in, the water's fine.

BAKER: I think Chuck Todd over at MSNBC last night said we didn't cover this because it really wasn't important. He was number 600 down the list of importance.

GLENN: Not true.

BAKER: And do you know why the New York Times didn't cover it?

GLENN: No, I didn't.

BAKER: They actually wrote about it in the paper why they didn't cover it. Do you know why?

GLENN: Oh, they were understaffed.

BAKER: Vacations.

GLENN: Vacations, yeah.

BAKER: They were understaffed because of vacations.

GLENN: Unbelievable.

BAKER: So when I

GLENN: Talk about understaffed, how about your staff and my staff?

BAKER: Right.

GLENN: All of us, there's a few of us that are trying to carry the water for the entire media. But anyway.

BAKER: Anyway, you know, Liz and I are just two people at Breitbart TV, you know, we've done 22,000 hand selected video posts in two years that have done over 100 million hits.

GLENN: Have you really?

BAKER: Yeah.

GLENN: Holy cow.

BAKER: Nothing automated. All, you know, hand done. So here, so this was

GLENN: Can't you get some like El Salvadorian underage children?

BAKER: Now that I know you can do that.

GLENN: I know. There's got to be some organization that can help you. Anyway, let's go on.

BAKER: Right. So anyway and it was research that I was doing but this was a lot, again, research from the people, right?

GLENN: Yeah.

BAKER: Sending stuff to you, sending stuff to me. And we looked at Valerie Jarrett. I knew that she was an important figure. Kind of like one of those Karen Hughes/Karl Rove figures, close to the president but kind of I mean, we hear Karl a lot now.

GLENN: Right.

BAKER: But you really didn't hear Karl interviewed while he was at the White House, right? Nor did you hear Karen Hughes. Their fingerprints were over all kinds of things. And so just using her kind of as a case study, we went back and said, I know that she was a lawyer and a businesswoman back in Chicago and had an interest in real estate development. And then you start to realize, well, that wasn't happenstance. She wasn't just, oh, I like buildings. Her grandfather was very important in Chicago housing. In fact, one of the big housing, public housing projects was named after him.

GLENN: Okay. So her grandfather was big into public housing.

BAKER: Yes, exactly. Now, her mother, Barbara Bowman, was very into education, a childhood education expert.

GLENN: Hang on. Listen to this carefully.

BAKER: And she

GLENN: Mom is an education expert.

BAKER: Right. And on all, you know, very progressive causes as you might expect.

GLENN: No, really. Housing, public housing king and education expert mate and have a child.

BAKER: Grandfather and then here's the mother, and she starts this group called the Erikson Institute and which is a childhood, you know, organization, childhood education organization. Now, any good public, you know, service organization needs a board, and so you look. And who was the chairman of the board of the Erikson Institute? Turns out that it was the CEO of Consolidated Edison, big executive kind of like the godfather of Chicago politics.

GLENN: Con Ed.

BAKER: Con Ed, a guy names Thomas Ayers and he was on a lot of boards

GLENN: Hold it, hold it, hold it. The mom who has this giant education idea.

BAKER: Right.

GLENN: She has she starts a foundation run by, what was his name?

BAKER: Thomas Ayers was Thomas Ayers, yeah.

GLENN: Huh. Thomas Ayers. Did he have a child? Did he mate with anybody and have a child?

BAKER: You know, he did actually.

GLENN: Yeah.

BAKER: Had two kids. One of them we don't know that much.

GLENN: Sure. Did any of the children go on to do anything explosive?

BAKER: Let me check. Bill maybe, Bill.

GLENN: Bill Ayers. Wow, okay.

BAKER: Bill was in there, too.

GLENN: Okay. So Valerie Jarrett's mother

BAKER: Right.

GLENN: Starts an organization, and the chair of that is Bill Ayers. Wow.

PAT: Dad, right?

GLENN: Wow.

PAT: Bill Ayers' dad.

BAKER: Yeah, Bill Ayers' dad.

GLENN: Yeah, Bill Ayers' dad.

BAKER: In fact, I went to Wheaton College right outside of Chicago and it was right next to Glen Ellyn, Illinois which is right next to where Thomas Ayers grew up and I just kind of always had thought that Bill Ayers may have been the rebellious kid that ran away from the executive family.

GLENN: Hey, my dad is a big power broker; I want to blow up Pentagon.

BAKER: But dad knows

GLENN: Happens all the time.

BAKER: Yeah, right. In fact, while he is over trying to blow up the Pentagon, dad's running a nuclear reactor. No worries.

GLENN: Sure, sure.

BAKER: Turns out dad's a progressive, too. So the and Valerie Jarrett's father is interesting. James Bowman, a doctor who was working for the U.S. in a program in Iran. In fact, Valerie Jarrett was born in Iran and lived there for the first five years of her life.

GLENN: Hold it. Hold it. I'm sorry. What?

BAKER: Yeah. She was born in Shiraz, Iran, which is a great wine. I don't know

GLENN: Shiraz?

BAKER: Yeah.

GLENN: I believe that's from Australia.

BAKER: Could be, right.

GLENN: I'm only an alcoholic. So what do I know.

BAKER: Look, we would need a separate show to deal with James Bowman.

GLENN: Sure. So wait, wait. Dad, doctor, washing for the government in Iran.

BAKER: Right.

GLENN: She's born in Iran from the mom who is big in education and starts this charity.

BAKER: Or foundation.

GLENN: Foundation that is run by Bill Ayers' father. Got it, okay, okay.

BAKER: And you know what? They call Valerie Jarrett kind of Chicago royalty, right? So in our little construct we're making her the princess.

GLENN: Okay.

BAKER: And we're making Thomas Ayers, let's call him the king. He will be the king.

GLENN: Okay, hang on just a second. Before we I mean, there couldn't have been generations of extremists.

BAKER: That's it. This is all we found. We're done.

GLENN: Okay. Hang on. Somehow or another I feel he's lying. Coming up in just a second.

(OUT 11:42)

GLENN: From WLS in Chicago today, Charlie Gibson was on LS, and he was asked a question about why haven't you covered the ACORN workers caught on tape helping a woman get a house to set up a brothel. Gibson said, quote: I didn't know about the story. It's now been confirmed. Later in the interview Charlie Gibson from ABC, asked if he attended the rally in D.C. this weekend, Gibson said, I was, quote, sailing in Maine over the weekend, end quote.

PAT: Sailing takes me away, too, to where I was

GLENN: No, I believe that was Christopher Cross. It was a bad song from the 1980s but let's not go there.

Okay. So Scott Baker, we have Scott Baker with us. He is from Breitbart TV. Scott, you are trying to piece together this twisted story of how did Barack Obama become who he is. We now have Valerie Jarrett, best friend of Barack Obama, and Michelle Obama.

BAKER: Right.

GLENN: Her mother is somebody who started a foundation all about education.

BAKER: Right.

GLENN: It was run by William Ayers' father.

BAKER: Right.

GLENN: William Ayers, is there any doubt in our mind that Valerie Jarrett and William Ayers know each other, or that Valerie Jarrett is completely clear on who William Ayers is and what he did?

BAKER: Here's something I haven't told you yet.

GLENN: Oh.

BAKER: Recently, like just a couple of years ago Valerie Jarrett's mother served on a board with Bernardine Dohrn. Now, that's another name I'm throwing into the mix here. Do you remember that one? Oh, that's Bill Ayers' wife.

GLENN: That's Bill Ayers' wife.

BAKER: Exactly. She, by the way, is a law professor at Northwestern even though she doesn't have a license to practice law. I don't know how you get that job except oh, wait a minute. Thomas Ayers was the chairman of the board of trustees at Northwestern University.

GLENN: Wow.

BAKER: All connected. Now, here. Let me take it one other step, right? Because you said how far back does it go. Well, what you find first of all, you know, Valerie Jarrett, that's her married name or her she later got divorced and her husband since died. But the Jarrett name came from, well, Vernon Jarrett. Vernon Jarrett's a legendary figure in Chicago, pioneering black journalist, and

GLENN: So he's a good guy.

BAKER: You know, he did he started the National Association of Black Journalists. But when you go way back.

GLENN: Way back.

BAKER: In the Forties when he was writing for the Chicago Defender and he was working with causes that, you know, clearly were if not dominated by active communists, very communist related causes. In fact, he served on committees to help the packing workers. And as we were looking at this and looking at saying, you know, he's writing at the Defender, he's working on this committee. Then we noticed another name there.

GLENN: Oh, boy.

BAKER: And this is where things really started to come together.

GLENN: Oh, boy.

BAKER: Because when you realize that also writing at the Defender, also serving on the committee for the packing workers, in fact on the same subcommittee, the publicity committee was chaired by Vernon Jarrett and one of the members was a guy named Frank Marshall Davis.

PAT: Not mentor Frank.

BAKER: Mentor Frank, yeah, exactly.

GLENN: Wait a minute. I thought he was in the Hawaii.

BAKER: Back when he was in Chicago, he was very active. He's a poet, a writer, a writer of erotic fiction, just a really varied guy.

GLENN: Yeah. Communist, too.

BAKER: Yeah, self admitted pedophile, a group sex fan, a lot of things.

GLENN: Self admitted pedophile?

BAKER: Yeah. And

GLENN: Self admit

PAT: He admitted that?

BAKER: He did. He wrote a book about it and said that the stories were fictionalized but were all based on real encounters that he had.

PAT: Yikes.

BAKER: So now he's off in Hawaii and who shows up but the very young Barack Obama.

GLENN: Hold on just a second. Is it true that Barack Obama's mom was also taken by her grandparents to the Seattle area to go to a school, I believe it was in Bellevue that is, if I'm not mistaken, was known as the Little Red Schoolhouse.

BAKER: Right.

GLENN: In during the McCarthy era, that they moved to the Seattle area to put her into a radicalized communist school. Is that true?

BAKER: That is a very fair assessment. And, in fact, the conclusion I take out of this is generally we can assume that people from the Seattle area are a little bit twisted.

GLENN: Yeah, as being from the Seattle area, yeah, that's absolutely I was the only normal one there.

BAKER: So, yeah. In fact, they

PAT: I don't think that was the allegation really.

GLENN: Really?

PAT: No, I don't think so.

GLENN: No, I no.

BAKER: So they off in Hawaii now. And remember, the poor kid, here's Barack Obama, you know, abandoned by his father, he's been off in Indonesia with his stepfather.

GLENN: Hold on just a second. Didn't Barack Obama's dad leave the family to go to a radical communist run school, college in Manhattan?

BAKER: There yes. In fact, he was the new school, there were offers from both.

GLENN: Yeah. Okay, I'm sorry.

BAKER: And I just, I'm watching your clock. So I want to do two things. We could do a week on this. But the point is

GLENN: Don't shut us down before

BAKER: When you wait, that's Mark Lloyd coming down the hallway.

GLENN: There he is. So anyway.

BAKER: So here's young Barack Obama, and his grandfather, you know, is taking him over to old Frank's house. He writes about this in his book Dreams of my Father. And they shared drinks, they would have the young Barack Obama write dirty limericks.

GLENN: That's what my grandpa used to do.

PAT: Yeah, memories.

GLENN: Sure.

BAKER: And Obama, you know, even notes that later when he's a community organizer, a young politician in Chicago, he would walk the streets and the neighborhoods where Frank Marshall Davis walked. And these are wistful sections of the book.

GLENN: When he comes back to Chicago or comes to Chicago, does he meet with Valerie Jarrett right away? How do they meet?

BAKER: Oh, did I mention Valerie Jarrett helped his fiancé, Barack Obama's fiancé Michelle get her first job working in politics in the mayor's office there? Yeah, she did. So what you see in all of this

PAT: Wow.

BAKER: is that there is a long history and connection. In fact, when you look even at Van Jones, one of the things that we looked at that Pam Key over at Naked Emporer News turned up was that Van Jones spoke in 1998 at a conference in Chicago, was the first Black Radical Congress who Jeremiah Wright was also a speaker.

GLENN: Oh, wow.

BAKER: This was on the University of Chicago Illinois campus where Bill Ayers was teaching.

GLENN: And Barack Obama was teaching, yeah.

BAKER: Well, Obama was at University of Chicago.

GLENN: Oh, I'm sorry.

BAKER: Now, we don't know if Obama attended that event but it was all 2,000 people and they were all community activists. So he mighta, you know, a little bit. But two years four years later he does speak on a panel with Bill Ayers that was moderated by the Black Radical Congress and, you know, at some point if you say I don't want to be Jeff Foxworthy but if you call yourself the Black Radical Congress, if you call yourself a radical, you might be a radical.

GLENN: Well, you might. Who are you why do you hate people that are from Chicago so much? Why do you hate people that are different than you?

BAKER: Listen, I lived in Chicago. I went to college there. I worked in politics there.

GLENN: So you say.

BAKER: Exactly.

GLENN: Send me everything you have on Scott Baker. Send it all to me so I can expose him.

BAKER: Exactly.

GLENN: All right. Thank you very much for lining this out and sincerely thank you both for everything that you've done. You are there are very few people that are really truly on the stories that need to be, and I know how risky it is. And I know how many late nights and how much stuff you have to sort through to be able to get to it with a very small staff. Thank you. You are doing the country a service.

BAKER: Thank you, Glenn.

GLENN: Breitbart TV. Back in a second.

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?'"

In a phone call with his constituents, Senator Ben Sasse (R-Neb) unleashed a torrent of criticisms about President Donald Trump, saying he "flirted with white supremacists," "kisses dictators' butts," and "spends like a drunken sailor."

On the radio program Friday, Glenn said he was disappointed in Sen. Sasse for apparently forgetting all of President Trump's accomplishments. Because, in reality, Trump has accomplished a lot more than many presidents before him.

Then, for anyone who may have forgotten President Trump's achievements — or who simply hate the man so much they've ignored them — Glenn listed just some of the many things this president has achieved during his three and a half years in the White House.

Watch the video below to hear Glenn's message for all the Trump-haters who have forgotten Trump's accomplishments, or you can read Glenn's list HERE:

President Trump has given us great judges on the lower court, 3 judges far superior than Roberts and other bogus constitutionalists as SCOTUS and one just may turn out to be another Clarence Thomas. He kicked the ass of ISIS and came home.

He got us out of the disastrous Iran deal, killed their head of terror, boxed them in and is currently collapsing their economy while also brokering a Mid East peace deal that everyone said could never happen. He moved our embassy to Jerusalem despite the state department, something no president has done even though they all promised.

Yes, he met with the North Korean Dictator. I hated that, but I also hated the fact that no other president did anything and North Korea kept gaining power. He has gotten Europe to pay their share of NATO, brought the Arabs and the Jews together, while smashing the choke hold of the PLO, and stood up to the Chinese instead of selling them supercomputers (Clinton), accepting lead poison in dog food (Bush), or loving the CCP and taking millions in dirty money (Obama/Biden).

He also has defended religious liberty unlike any other president at least in the last 100 years, and is a true pro-life advocate that unlike most republicans backs it up with action instead of just talk.

President Trump has also opened doors that the GOP was too wussy to even try to open with Hispanics and Blacks. He again didn't pander. He instead cleared the dead wood and opened pathways up so they could get higher education, create jobs, and not get lost in the prison system.

He also has defended religious liberty... and is a true pro-life advocate.

President Trump also took on an economy that had been beaten down, a people who had been told "you didn't build that" and, in fact, Obama and Biden claimed that the economy was "as good as it would ever get," that we would never create jobs in sectors ever again.

President Trump gave us the lowest unemployment rate since 1969 (the year I celebrated my 5th birthday,) the lowest unemployment for Hispanics & Blacks ever, and the first real growth in pay that I can remember.

President Trump then responded to the largest pandemic in 100 years by doing a couple of things I have never seen a president do:

  1. America's biggest capitalist shuts down the entire economy and knowingly puts his re-election at risk in order to save people.
  2. Closes travel with China and Europe, only to be called “racist," "xenophobic" and accused of stirring hatred. Now everyone says they were for it, but he stood alone and took the heat.

When everyone bashed him because they thought he would seize control and become an authoritarian by telling states what to do, or taking control of companies and telling them what to produce, he simply asked the free market to step to the plate, because he trusts the people of this country to do the right thing. By not taking control, he was called a dictator and a Nazi. Meanwhile he has been blamed for the blood bath created by Gov. Cuomo's nursing home policies. They said 2 million would die, best case scenario 200,000 — if we did everything right. Gee, seems that we are now in the time period they told us would be phase two, it seems as though we seem to have hit that "best case scenario" at this point.

While all of this has gone on, President Trump has fought the lies that were started by Hillary Clinton's team to smear him as a Russian operative. It was enabled by the Obama White House and included the DOJ, CIA, Dept of State, FBI, and DNI. Did I leave anyone out? Oh, yeah we are now getting evidence that members of the Pentagon may have been involved as well. Not to mention the so-called "press" and Congress who did things that would embarrass not only "Frank Underwood" but also Kevin Spacey. He has single handedly exposed the press for who they are and have always been. Because of his tweets, personal style and frankly balls of steel, he has exposed those who truly are: "Enemies of the people." I hated that when he first said it, but it is true. Any person or group that knowingly lies to destroy our president, our Constitution and the free market, are not just enemies of the people, they are enemies of the freedom of all mankind.

As someone who didn't support President Trump at first (and that is putting it mildly) I remain honest enough to judge him on his entire record. He is perhaps the only man in America that can and has stood entirely alone, surrounded by enemies, surrounded by those who took an oath to protect and defend the Constitution, who are now actively engaged in destroying it and any elected president who stands in their way.

Personally, I have grown sick and tired of spineless, do nothing, old, corrupt GOP politicians who are either part of the problem or too frightened to stand alone and speak up. The vast majority are all "Sunshine Patriots." History will condemn those who did nothing but complain and whine, while others not only rang the bell, but stood and took the hits, who risked it all and lost money, reputation and perhaps, God forbid, some who gave the ultimate sacrifice to fight the evil that rages so clearly against the light.

100 years from now history will judge all of us. So will our children's children. Most will be forgotten. Those who failed to show up on the battlefield or cower in the trees, will be remembered with shame and disdain. Others like President Trump, I believe will be seen as indispensable.
