Glenn interviews Sarah Palin




Glenn Beck is seen here with Sarah Palin

GLENN: Hello, America, and hello to Sarah Palin.

SARAH PALIN: Hello.

GLENN: Are you in Texas today, Governor?

SARAH PALIN: I am in a tiny little town in Texas, just loving this sunshine.

GLENN: Where

SARAH PALIN: And getting ready to get on an airplane in Dallas.

GLENN: Where are you what tiny little town?

SARAH PALIN: I hate to expose the name and have them be but no, it's Giddings, Texas. Just the sweetest people who are here and it's great for my family to get to be here just kind of chilling until the next event tonight.

GLENN: I was in Tyler, Texas last Saturday and gave a speech and they made me an honorary Texan, which I appreciated. I said when Rick Perry handed me the honorary Texan certificate, I asked him, I said, is there going to come a time where I'm going to need to use this as a passport?

SARAH PALIN: Oh, I'm in Tyler in a couple of weeks and I do love being in Texas and I always kind of kick off my events here by saying how much I appreciate Texas. The independence of the people who are here and the patriotism. And it's always great to be in Alaska's little sister state of Texas.

GLENN: Little sister state. They appreciate that.

SARAH PALIN: Yeah.

GLENN: I was I think you are at the same place that I was at a couple of weeks ago. It's amazing, Sarah, what is happening with this particular business owner. You know, he's bringing these conservative people in. The night before I was there, it was about 10:00 at night and they were doing a concert at this arena and there was ZZ Top. And he went into a bathroom or something and he tries to turn on the water and the water was off. And he went to his building manager and said, hey, what's with the water. Just then the health inspector comes in. The health inspector now, 10:00 at night in the middle of a ZZ Top concert. Health inspector comes in and says, we notice that your water is off. And he said, you noticed that our water is off? And she said, yes, absolutely. Can you show us where your water pump is? So he takes them around and shows them the water pump and she said, yeah, we notice that we noticed that these valves had been turned a couple of days ago. He said, excuse me? You noticed these valves a couple of days ago? She said, yeah, we're going to have to, we're going to have to shut you down and you are not going to be able to do anything else for the rest of the weekend.

Now, I was going to give my speech the next day. The next morning they called and said, you know, you are going to be in violation; you've got to cancel this. He said, what happens if I don't cancel? And they said, well, it's going to be a misdemeanor, it will be a $2,000 fine. He said, fine me. They shut them down on a Friday night and tried to keep them closed and he says he's convinced that it's because people like you are coming in, me, and he's holding conservatives. And he said, even in his little teeny town of Tyler, Texas, he's getting the regulation heat.

SARAH PALIN: Unbelievable. You know, along those lines, does it ever make you feel like you may need a food taster in front of you, Glenn?

GLENN: Yes. Yes, I do. Yes, I do. Sarah, I have to thank you for the Time 100. I didn't know that you were writing the thing on me and I it was wonderful. Thank you very much.

SARAH PALIN: It sure was wonderful, wasn't it? But the 200 word essay, it wasn't enough room there to talk about so many things that

GLENN: Oh, please.

SARAH PALIN: No, listen. That Americans would love to hear about. What I wanted to interject in there and didn't have the space to do so was to talk about some of your personal stuff that has shaped your thinking on political and cultural stuff because you have faced the challenges that so many Americans perhaps are facing today and you've overcome them and you have a healthy perspective then on what's going on in our world and you are able to have some right priorities and work hard for those priorities. I wish that there had been more room in that essay to talk a little bit about that, that a lot of Americans don't know.

GLENN: Well, I appreciate it. I mean, but I thank you for, you know, for what you wrote. Are you coming on Tuesday to the Time 100?

SARAH PALIN: It's my plan. Piper and I will be in New York. So our plan is to be there. What about you?

GLENN: Can we make sure that we're sitting at the same table? I don't I went last year. It is a nightmare!

SARAH PALIN: Well, how did you face them? Because you know that there will be criticism of, oh, yeah, she condemns the mainstream media and yet she shows up at one of the functions.

GLENN: Whatever, shut up.

SARAH PALIN: Hey, look who's I don't mind making a couple of people uncomfortable in the room if I'm there. That's fine, too.

GLENN: Yeah. You know what? They're going to say whatever they're going to say, whether we show up or we don't show up.

SARAH PALIN: Right.

GLENN: I just want to sit at the table last time I was sitting at the table, I don't even remember who I was sitting at the table with. Everybody at the table hated my guts and, you know, I think one of them was the head of Newsweek magazine, and I remember asking the question at the table, "You know you guys are all in love with all of this stuff. Has anybody, has anybody stopped to think what America looks like after all of these changes are put into place?" And nobody said anything at the table. And I could tell nobody had even thought of that. They were all looking at the individual pieces but they hadn't looked at the whole puzzle. And it made people uncomfortable and I enjoyed that for that moment.

SARAH PALIN: Sure.

GLENN: I'd like to double team them as well.

Let me just talk to you about this. Did you see the people that are on the list? Because you are on the leaders and I'm on the leaders of the most influential people in the world.

SARAH PALIN: No. I only knew about you.

GLENN: Well, you know and you, right?

SARAH PALIN: And me.

GLENN: Let me give you the list of people that's on this and tell me if you see a pattern. First there's Lula da Silva, president of Brazil, a guy who was on the original founding, one of the founding members of the Workers World Party. Then there's Barack Obama. Then there's Ron Bloom, organized labor and Marxist, a guy who says that he kind of agrees with Chairman Mao, that power comes from the barrel of a gun and that the free market is dead. Then there is the prime minister of Japan who is described in Time as a revolutionary, liberal Democratic Party, wants more power and transparency. His election was called Historic Change. He's also a management professor, which I think Woodrow Wilson was. Then there's Dominique Strauss Kahn from the IMF, head of the IMF. He was running for president of France in 2007 under the Socialist Party ticket. He lost and now he's at the IMF. Then there is Bo Xilai. I don't know how to say it, son of the Chinese Communist Party leader. Then there is Christine Lagarde, minister of finance from France. She's described as being very brave because you ready she's for global interdependence. Then there is the prime minister of Turkey, openly critical of Israel and part of the Justice and Development Party. Then there's Nancy Pelosi. Then there's the prime minister of Palestine. Then there is the guy who was working for Prudential and helped bring on AIG. He's on the commission for Africa and the African Progress Panel. Bob Geldof loves him. Then there's Sister Carol Keehan, she was fighting for healthcare and fighting for social justice. Then there's the Sheik of the UAE. Then a guy named Li, a Chinese billionaire who is helping build China. Then there's you, Scott Brown, me, somebody in Atlanta who I have to meet. I have not met her. Hopefully she's going to be at this thing. We'll have maybe we can get her to sit at the table. She is the, one of the first people on the Tea Party movement and she also was the leader of the 9/12 project in Atlanta. John Kyle oh, her name is Jenny Beth Martin. And then Stanley McChrystal and you.

SARAH PALIN: Hmmm. What kind of company are we keeping there, Glenn?

GLENN: Isn't that amazing? Isn't that amazing? It is I mean, we see I look at this list and you can see. There are lines being drawn. It is Marxists, globalists, communists, and us.

SARAH PALIN: And some pieces of raw meat being thrown into the mix is what it sounds like. It's pretty fascinating and, no, I haven't known, you know, kind of what their criteria was for selecting these names.

GLENN: Well, I was surprised that you and I made it. You know, somebody I know that was in the room when they did the Time Man of the Year. Your name and my name was brought up I think by Giuliani and Gayle King and the others in the room said, oh, please. Gayle King said, don't make me vomit. So I mean, we were thrown out immediately and so were the Tea Parties, didn't even make it into the year end review.

SARAH PALIN: You know what this is going to allow us to do, Glenn, is just express further how much we love America and the opportunities that we have here, and it will be just the antithesis of so many of the statements and representations of all those other people that you just named off when we will be able to have kind of a platform then to even greater than you already have that allows us to remind Americans that we live the life that most people on the grove would never even be able to dream of and yet too many Americans find ourselves just taking for granted the American life that our founding fathers worked so hard to create. I'm looking at this as an opportunity to remind Americans of our exceptionalism that we need to re embrace and get back to and even in spite of the odd, odd characters that are included on this list with us. I'm going to capitalize on it and I'm going to do all that I can in kind of perpetuating what our message is reminding Americans of how fortunate we are.

GLENN: Sarah, we'll talk to you we'll see you Tuesday.

SARAH PALIN: That sounds wonderful.

GLENN: Thanks a lot. Talk to you again.

SARAH PALIN: Thank you.

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?'"
