Glenn Beck: Duct tape alert - Head exploding news


Actual Product: GB Duct Tape

GLENN: Comrades! Yeah, baby. Welcome to it. It's a bright sunny day in our new state. We're glad you're here. Last night the President spoke and it was dandy. I liked it.

By the way, some unrelated news, from Reuters today Chinese regulators have told domestic banks in China to stop interbank lending to U.S. financial institutions to prevent possible losses during the financial crisis. That doesn't catch on. By the way, another one. Boos at Columbia University over a year ago, President Ahmadinejad yesterday of Iran received a much warmer reception from about 400 American students and professors at the Hyatt hotel in Midtown Manhattan. Especially at a time when our leaders and policy makers aren't meeting with this man, it was refreshing to hear from him, said a senior at North Central College. "It was incredible," another senior said. Ann Fisher from North Central College said, "I honestly believe that the National Intelligence Estimate is correct and since 2003 the nuclear program has been peaceful." Ahmadinejad said, "I love you all. I feel like I'm with very old friends." Oh, you were, Mr. President. Several students asked the Iranian president about some of his most controversial positions, that Israel ought to be destroyed, or that the Holocaust may not have occurred. About the murder of six million Jews, Mr. Ahmadinejad said he was unable to negate it or prove it. So we'll just continue to question it.

What the hell is wrong with us! How about this one, front page of the New York Times: North Koreans bar inspectors at nuclear site. North Koreans move to resume the reprocessing of plutonium perhaps as soon as next week. Left the country on the verge of restarting their nuclear weapons program has been shut down and portrayed by the White House as a significant diplomatic achievement.

How about this one. Charlie Rangel. The House ethics committee launched an investigation yesterday into possible misconduct by Charles Rangel in using four rent stabilized apartments, soliciting donations for an institute with his name on it on congressional stationery, failing to pay taxes on years of rental income and storing a broken down car in congress' garage for years. By the way, congress didn't initiate this themselves. Mr. Rangel said "You should investigate me." The lunatics are in charge of the Sun.

Oh, by the way, something else down in Venezuela. New war games are starting now with Russia. Venezuela says there's no nuclear weapons on board any of these ships from Russia. Um hmm. The lead Russian ship, a nuclear powered 19,000 ton cruiser, Peter the Great is one of the largest and deadliest missile cruisers afloat. It can deliver 20 500 kiloton nuclear warheads with its granite long range missile system but Pravda's saying there's no missiles on board there.

Oh, how about this one. Last night, acting with unusual speed and bipartisanship, the House of Representatives yesterday approved funding for a $25 billion loan program to help the auto industry build more fuel efficient vehicles. The aid package enjoyed support from both parties because of the election year importance to battle ground states such as Michigan and Ohio where many cars are manufactured. Supporters portray the bill as small change compared to the $700 billion Wall Street bailout proposed by the Bush administration, and Michigan lawmakers say they are preparing to seek another $25 billion in the short future. In the midst of all the economic dark clouds that are in the sky, this report is a bright support bright spot this morning. Spots, usually cancerous.

Oh, and here's one of my favorites. Homeland Security has a new tool out. Homeland Security is now testing the next generation of security screening. It is a body scanner. It's called MALINTENT, one word, new system. MALINTENT. They say we don't need to look for explosive or metals that pose a threat because the new system called MALINTENT can read people's minds. MALINTENT, the brainchild of the cutting edge human factors division in Homeland Security's directorate for science and technology searches your body for nonverbal cues that predict whether or not you mean harm to your fellow passengers. "Boop, boop, boop, boop, boop." "Please step through one more time, please." "Boop, boop, boop, boop, boop." "Are you thinking bad thoughts?" "Oh, I might be."

Russia has protected their people by invading Georgia. OPEC has cut production. Israel is on the precipice of attacking Iran. The U.S. economy was the subject last night of a special address to the nation by George W. Bush. The before storm is going to be the topic of conversation tonight at 7:00. Last night I did energy with John Hoffmeister. Did you get a chance to see it, Stu? It was a live show last night. You know, I thought it was pretty good. I thought, you know, the callers came in, we were overwhelmed with calls last night. I think we're going to try to do another one next week on the economy and the bailout. I'm going to do an Economy 101, a special on Monday just to bring you up to speed on what all of this is, what it all means, what caused this, et cetera, et cetera, and what the bailout means. That will be on Monday. And then we may do another call in show as well because it was incredible. But I talked to John Hoffmeister last night off the air and I said, what do you think of this Russia thing? I said, you know, their economy has collapsed, their Wall Street has been closed as they try to put things together because their economy is hurt by low oil prices. Ours is hurt by high oil prices. You know, we would not, despite what Michael Moore would tell you, we would not go into another country and cause war just for cheaper oil. Russia would for more expensive oil. The role that Russia is going to play.

You know, the reason why I've been talking about the perfect storm is because I said there's going to come a time when all of these things start to come and they come together and then that's when our enemies pounce on us because they see that we're weak. China is talking about one world currency now. The UN is talking about one world financial system. I heard a report out of Germany and France today on the BBC driving in that was, they say that New York is no longer the financial center of the world, that they have officially lost the that America has lost the financial center of the Earth. Things have you know, I've been telling you for a while that we're going to wake up on a Monday and our country will be different on a Friday. Again I thought maybe it was last week, maybe it's this week, I don't know, but things are changing and most people don't really see it coming and that's why it is so important for you to spread the news to your friends, you know. The country, I really think the country will freak out. If some of these things start to happen, the country's going to freak out, and you've got to be the person that you promised you were going to be on 9/12 and most likely you are still that person you promised to be on 9/12. You know, you were going to be a leader, you were going to keep things in perspective and you knew that we could conquer anything, and we can conquer anything. But we have to prepare people for what is possible and what is possibly coming our way. We're going to have severe change economically in our country. May not be the Great Depression but could be. A significant change in our country is coming this way, and you have to help your friends through it. You have to tell your friends now. If you've got a friend who's going to Vegas, "You know, I'm going to start blowing all their..." oh, wait a minute, Stu. I didn't mean to bring up you. Going to Vegas this weekend.

STU: Well, I did realize that you said the next four days could be the most important days of my life. I'm happy to be spending them in Vegas.

GLENN: Why don't you just put them in the stock market? You have a no, you're right, you have a better shot at winning in Vegas.

STU: I'm pulling out all my money and I figure I'm going to go heartache. I'm going to be on the heartache and yell 11.

GLENN: So if you have a friend like I have a friend who's going to Vegas this weekend.

STU: Right.

GLENN: You should say to them, what, are you stupid?

STU: Now, why would you say that? You know, here I am, I'm trying to help

GLENN: I know.

STU: I don't know if you read this article, Glenn. This came out just the other day. And I think it's very, very sad and telling. Las Vegas has unexpectedly been hit by a downturn.

GLENN: So you're giving us Steve Burguiere bailout.

STU: This is a see, I'm not doing it through the government. I'm doing it it's up to individuals, Glenn.

GLENN: Never thought of that. Never thought of that.

STU: To step to the plate, fly to Las Vegas and hand them their money for almost no entertainment.

GLENN: That is fantastic.

STU: If we don't do that for our cities

GLENN: The terrorists and the big bankers and the evil oil people win.

STU: I'm just trying to be Wall Street or Main Street. I'm trying to be Main Street on the strip. And they're evil Wall Street.

This is a moment "Cynical Theories" author James Lindsay probably hoped would never come. The liberal mathematician and host of the "New Discourses Podcast" recently came out as "unhappily" voting Republican, including for President Donald Trump, because the Democratic Party is now being controlled by a far-left movement that seeks to destroy our country and the U.S. Constitution.

He joined Glenn Beck on the radio program Thursday to explain why this election isn't "Trump versus Biden." It's Trump versus a "movement that wants to tear apart American society at its very foundation." Lindsay warned that if it isn't stopped, the left can toss out our rights by rewriting the Constitution — or abolishing it altogether.

"A lot of people don't understand what's happening with the election we have right now," he said. "They think it's a choice between Donald Trump and Joe Biden. And at the surface level, of course, it is. We're voting for each candidate to be duly put into the office of president. But that's not what we really have going on. We have, in Donald Trump, a man who's going to govern as we've all seen — the way he feels like he's going to govern. And we have in Joe Biden, a man captured by a movement that wants to tear apart the American society at its very foundation."

Lindsay noted the popular leftist narratives that call to "abolish anything they don't like," which now includes the U.S. Constitution. He added that "this is the movement that is controlling the Democratic Party."

"It is my belief, that there has been a largely effective kind of silent coup of the Democratic Party, that's turned it completely under the control of this movement. And that's what we're going to be electing with Joe Biden. So I can't do it," he said.

Tonight at 9 p.m. ET, 8 p.m. CT, Glenn Beck goes straight to the source of the biggest story in the country with Mayor Rudy Giuliani, who takes us directly into Hunter Biden's alleged laptop.

Despite Big Tech's attempts to squash this story, there should be a mad scramble in the media to get to the bottom of major corruption allegations, but they're willfully ignoring it. However, this is not just a story about Hunter Biden. This is all about Joe Biden. It's a story Glenn has been investigating for over a year that traces back to Ukraine and China. It goes directly to the root of corruption within our political system: How politicians use their family members to enrich the entire clan and sell out their country. While the media looks the other way, Glenn asks Mayor Giuliani to show us the evidence. Giuliani details the chain of possession of the laptop and reveals news that he only had possession of the laptop days before the New York Post story broke. He says, "I reported this the day after I saw it."

He also drops a major bombshell on the show and says Big Tech doesn't want you to see evidence that "establishes with texts, documents, contracts" that "Joe Biden was a 10% partner with a Chinese communist … and there are witnesses that will come forward and testify to it."

Big Tech censorship is out of control. So to watch tonight's explosive episode of Glenn TV, you must be a BlazeTV subscriber.

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.
