Glenn Beck: Vote San Fran out

GLENN: I think we should look at a map today and decide what's in and what's out. No, no. No, no, I know it's July 4th weekend and everything, but let's have our own Constitutional Convention, shall we? I mean, everybody else is changing everything. Right now San Francisco is sending drug-dealing illegal aliens on a free trip home. Now, normally I'd be for that. However, they're doing it to avoid federal prosecution. The cops will pick up these crack-dealing illegal aliens, they'll go in and they'll go into juvenile court because Honduras is sending all these kids to deal crack in San Francisco. I think, you know, the city council, to come up with the stuff they've done, they need a lot of crack. So Honduras is sending these crack dealers to San Francisco, and San Francisco, in the goodness of their heart, they say, gosh, they're busted for selling dope on the street, then they'll never become citizens. Good! Isn't that a good thing? How did this happen? When did San Francisco go completely insane?

Now, I know it's been a very long time. I'm just wondering has it always been that -- maybe there's a fissure somewhere and, like, weird gas is seeping out and everybody in San Francisco is just breathing it and they don't smell it. It's like natural gas. You don't really smell it and you're like, I'm getting sleepy. And instead of getting sleepy, they just go nuts. I mean, they don't support the ROTC, they go against everything that our country stands for. They are constantly trying to turn us into a socialist state. Why don't you just become your own country, San Francisco? I mean it. I'm serious. I'd come visit ya. It would be great. No, seriously it would. Be like, oh. You know, I never went to the old Soviet Union. Wouldn't it be great to be able to go to San Francisco where everybody could live in misery? You could just visit? You could, like, "Hmmm, this system doesn't really seem to work." I mean, the only reason why San Francisco is standing is because they're on the teat of everybody else. The only reason why they're secure is because they have the army, but they don't support it. So why don't we just vote them out. Can't we do that, please, please? Stu, please will you give me permission? Please?

STU: I mean, I'm not a constitutional scholar here.

GLENN: But you're willing to go with me, aren't ya?

STU: But it seems like that would be fine. There's an amendment in there somewhere that covers that.

GLENN: No, I don't think there is.

STU: No, if you --

GLENN: Really?

STU: Yeah.

GLENN: You know what, I may need those special Ben Franklin glasses that I saw in that movie. Maybe that's what it is. If you put the glasses on and you're like, oh, you can vote them out. I mean, I'm looking at the map here and there's very few cities that I really want voted out. San Francisco, Berkeley, Oakland, they all kind of -- have you noticed that they all are kind of on the coasts?

STU: All the cities you want to vote out?

GLENN: Hmmm?

STU: All the cities you want to vote out are on the coast? That doesn't surprise me too much.

GLENN: I mean, not universally so. Houston's kind of on the coast. Tampa's on the coast.

STU: Here's the problem. If you vote all the coastal cities off, then you have no -- I mean, you have no waterfront property. We would lose all of our --

GLENN: That's why I don't want to get rid of all coastal cities. I'm not getting rid of San Diego. San Diego is sweet. San Diego, come on, man. You can take San Francisco. That's what we should do. We should just start pitting them against each other.

STU: So you are saying you kind of want imperialist cities that will, like, start taking over other cities?

GLENN: Seriously, seriously. Don't you think, Stu, you, me and, like, I don't know, Marcus Luttrell could take -- okay. Don't you think Marcus Luttrell could take San Francisco?

STU: Yeah, Marcus --

GLENN: I mean, we would just be there for -- I don't know. He might once in a while say, I need a distraction.

STU: Or a soda. We could bring him soda.

GLENN: We could bring him a soda. You don't think San Diego could kick San Francisco's ass?

STU: Well, yes. I mean, if I had to pick a fight, I don't understand how we're judging that but I would say yes, it does seem that way. Although, I mean action things are so perfect in San Diego, I feel like you're in kind of like perfect temperatures all the time. You might just be like, "I don't really feel like it." I feel like they would be more of a Switzerland. They would just be kind of, like, hanging out.

GLENN: Although when was the last time you were in San Diego? Probably a couple of months ago, wasn't it?

STU: Two weeks ago or so.

GLENN: Two weeks ago?

STU: Yeah.

GLENN: Do you notice the number of flag poles?

STU: Oh, yeah, yeah.

GLENN: San Diego is the Texas of California. I mean it. It is.

STU: That being accurate.

GLENN: It is the Texas of California. It's like the one place that you go. I mean, I can't say this for the city government, but it's the one place you go where the citizens will go, "Get the hell out of my face."

STU: I just feel like, maybe I'm judging on how I feel when I go to San Diego which I don't even go -- I can't get -- the farthest I can get from the bed is the pool. Like, I can't do anything. There's no exercise, there's no --

GLENN: I can't even, I can't even get to the bed or the pool. I'd, like, sit down -- I sit down like in a lounge chair and I'm just like, honey, I'm just going to sit here for a week.

STU: Yeah.

GLENN: I can't even get to the bed or the pool.

STU: Yeah, your brain and your body shut down. So I know I wouldn't be effective but I mean, that -- you know, the people there, they're used to it.

GLENN: The people there, you know. I mean, come on. You're wearing shorts and short sleeve shirts year round. Once in a while you'll be like, "I don't know, let's do something else. Let's take over San Francisco." Might need a change, you know?

STU: I feel like that's possible. I don't know -- like, I feel like there's a possibility, too, of just the entire state of Nevada trying to, you know, make sort of invasions into California, just taking some land because, you know, like, I feel like California, like a lot of the cities and everybody, they're constantly banning guns and attempting to and making all the gun -- but then the next state over, very libertarian state of Nevada where they just want to do what they want to do. I mean, you can do anything in that state.

GLENN: I got a new idea. I got a new idea. Let's give San Francisco away to the city that can take it. For instance, you have a good point on San Diego. San Diego just, you know, they're like, "San Diego, what do you want San Francisco for." Cleveland, on the other hand, --

STU: Yeah.

GLENN: I'd put my money on.

STU: They would be very interested, I think, in that.

GLENN: They would be very interested. They would be very interested. Now, not all parts of Cleveland. You know, Cleveland, let's say the actual city of Cleveland probably would -- oh, my gosh. I got it. We let all the suburbs of Cleveland go kick all the city dwellers of San Francisco out and all the San Francisco people live in the suburbs of Cleveland. That way it matches. You know what I mean?

STU: No, I don't think I understand. I'll be perfectly honest.

GLENN: It matches. The people in the city of Cleveland are so liberal, they're just --

STU: Well, they keep electing Dennis Kucinich.

GLENN: Exactly right. So don't you think a city that elects Dennis Kucinich deserves the people of San Francisco? And don't you think the right-thinking Americans in the suburbs of Cleveland deserve a nice city like San Francisco?

STU: There's a strong argument to be made here, Glenn. You know, you really are, you're like a Soviet central planner. You could just make all these decisions yourself.

GLENN: You know what, here's another thing -- oh, and I'd do it, too. Somebody said to me when we were on the tour, they said, "After I heard that speech in the second half of the Unelectable tour, I don't think you're unelectable. I really think you could be elected President." I said, no for two reasons: One, if I ever was President, I'd vaporize too many places; and two, I would do things like this. I would say, yeah, you know what, San Francisco, we're cutting you off of all federal funding. Sucks to be you, huh?

STU: It seems like every time I hear someone say that to you after one of these tours or something, you should run. You just get that, it's like the Indian who sees the litter and he turns around and a tear comes down his face. That's how I feel because it's just, that's how low our standards are in this country.

GLENN: It really is.

STU: They are willing to think about you as possibly something other than a rodeo clown.

GLENN: They're alcoholics. Anybody who says that's an alcoholic.

STU: Even an alcoholic shouldn't be considering you.

GLENN: No, they're drunks.

STU: I agree. I mean, I agree but I'm just saying that you're, at the very highest level of rodeo clown.

GLENN: Can I ask you this. Why are we fighting global warming? I'm looking at the map of the United States of America and I'm like, you know, I'm just, I'm looking at the map. You know, I'm seeing Duluth, Minnesota and I'm thinking, I don't want to live there. Eau Claire, Wisconsin, no thank you. Cleveland, not so much. Not so much. Buffalo, I don't think so. And then you look down at the southern part and you see St. Petersburg, Florida. Yeah, you know what I'm saying? San Diego, Phoenix, yeah. Flagstaff, that's great. Lake Tahoe, wouldn't you want to live there?

STU: So what you are saying is you are rooting for global warming?

GLENN: No, I'm thinking of a couple of things. Atlanta, Columbia, Charlotte, Raleigh, Richmond. Are you seeing a trend here? Are you seeing a trend?

STU: Yes.

GLENN: They're all southern.

STU: Yes.

GLENN: Okay? A, I'm kind of rooting now for the South. And when it comes to global warming, have you noticed that all of the cities that people are moving to are warmer? Don't you think the people in the north should start rooting for global warming because then, you know, Baton Rouge, Louisiana would be, like, 134 degrees and Minneapolis-St. Paul would be 70.

STU: You seem to have this strange -- you seem to be rooting for some sort of civil conflict here, potentially Civil War Part 2. I don't know what the reasoning for that is. Is it one story about crack dealers? Is that the motivation?

GLENN: That's what it is, yeah. You don't think it's time to kick San Francisco's ass? Let's be honest. You know, I want to take a freak jury. I'm coming back with a freak jury. Question is, isn't it time we just kick San Francisco's ass? Enough said. Yes or no. It just is as easy as that. 12 cold calls, one decision. And you know what? I don't want a hung jury. I don't even want it close. It's yes or no. It's pretty simple. Don't you think it's time we kick their ass; or kick them out or stop all their federal funding. You can't support it, you can't play by the rules. San Francisco, we're coming to kick your ass. We'll see you at noon today. And then around 12:30 we'll have lunch because the job will be done. All the hippies will be crying by 12:05, "They've got guns." We'll have lunch. See you, hippie freak. 

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?'"

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:
