GLENN BECK PROGRAM


BEGIN TRANSCRIPT

GLENN: I want to play this segment from television last night, in case you didn't hear it. And then I'd like to hear how you feel about it. I'd like -- I would really like to hear from people talking me down from the tree. I would like to hear from people who say that this is not exactly why we find ourself in a situation to where I'd like to take out a frickin' quill pen and write the Declaration of Independence. I would really like to hear from you, and you tell me how I misread the arrogance of this congressman last night.

Last night I did a special, an hour-long special. It's our first in a series that is coming. And don't miss a single episode of radio or television next week because I'm going to start to uncover the stuff that -- because I can't take it anymore. Start to uncover the stuff that I think is really going on. I'm sorry, but I no longer believe that the people in Washington have our best interests at heart when it comes to the border. I don't believe that any of them -- well, I can't say any of them. I can't believe the majority of them are actually trying to solve this problem. It is a combination of arrogance, it is a combination of ignorance, apathy on their part, not ours.

There is Rasmussen -- I talked to Scott Rasmussen a couple of days ago. He is going to release a poll early next week. Let me spoil this for you, for him. He will be on the program to give us the poll numbers themselves, but there is no disconnect between the Republicans. The Republicans are not split on illegal immigration. When you poll Republicans in the country, they are not split. There is a split in the Democratic party. There is a sharp divide in the Democratic voters on illegal immigration, not in the Republicans. The Republicans are in lock step, fix the border. The majority of Democrats are also saying fix the border. It's a small minority of Democratic voters that don't want the border fixed. So where is this real divide in America? We're not divided on the border, at least in America. We're divided from our leadership. Our leadership is no longer answering to us on this and they think they have the power. They think they have the answer. I want you to listen.

Last night I had -- I had people on the program that it's taken me a couple of weeks to convince a couple of these people to actually come on the air with me. I was on the air the night before last, or I was on a conference call the night before last begging a guy, please come on; I'll protect, I will protect your identity; no one will know. "I can't, I can't, I can't. Glenn, I'll get nailed by the Government because the Government doesn't want you to know this stuff, and if they don't nail me, I live down at the border. They will kill me." And he didn't mean the Government. He meant Mexicans.

There is -- I'm sitting there and I'm putting this on the air and people are risking their life to speak out. A sheriff who is on the border in Laredo, Texas. Can you imagine? By the way, just across the river if you are the sheriff of Laredo, you have a life expectancy of 25 hours. Just across the border where everything is great, the sheriff is fighting crime. 70 people have been kidnapped from his city. He's doing everything he can. If you saw him on television, you could see he's not working in a state-of-the-art sheriff's office. We put a truck down there in front of the sheriff's office and so we brought a live shot in from there. A few minutes later I had some people who had family members kidnapped. 70, 70 Americans have been kidnapped and killed in the last two years. That's more than the Iranians took in 1979. And yet we've made calls to family member after family member after family member. Most of them won't come on television because they will say to you -- they will cry on the phone and say, "I can't, I've got other children, I've got to protect the rest of my family, I can't leave here. You don't know what it's like here." These are Americans in an American city.

So I have the share-a-thon and we're -- the congressman talks about how great it is that we're going to give $1.5 billion and we're going to give helicopters and we're going to give state-of-the-art eavesdropping equipment to the Mexican military. Earlier in the program I showed you a Mexican ID, a Mexican military ID. I didn't show you last night -- can't be cleared yet -- the night vision film of the Mexican military 60 miles past our border. I couldn't show you, because it hasn't been cleared yet, the heads that were rolled into a nightclub and left on a nightclub floor because people oppose these gangs. I talked to a sheriff who stood down the Mexican military as the Mexican military took their 50 caliber machine guns and turned them around and pointed them at the U.S. sheriff to protect the drug cartels and the drug runners. And this sheriff is saying, I need help, I need help. And the congressman is saying, well, we're giving that help to Mexico because we can trust Mexico. We're not going to put troops down on the border. We don't need troops. We'll give the money to Mexico. And here's what happened, and I want your response on this. You tell me how I misread this. Listen to this.

GLENN: Sheriff, I want to change the subject here and I'm sorry. I've got to go to the hostages. Can you please --

SHERIFF: I need to say one -- I need to say one thing, Glenn.

GLENN: Okay.

SHERIFF: I want to ask the congressman who is he representing, President Calderon or his district here in Laredo, Texas where we haven't received any resources at the local level to be able to combat the problems on the border.

CONGRESSMAN CUELLAR: Well, first of all, let me say this, Mr. Sheriff. What we're looking at is you have got more money than you've ever gotten in the past and we've got to keep in mind that the border will be patrolled by the border patrol and by the federal agencies. We will work with the local law enforcement and we represent, but your job is to be a county sheriff, not a U.S. congressman, which is a big difference. My job is to look at the big picture. Your job is to look at the smaller picture, and I will do my job as long as you do your job.

GLENN: Boy, congressman, I don't think I have ever --

SHERIFF: I'd like to find out how much money has the congressman allocated to our county. How much money have you allocated for border security for Webb County or from the counties from Brownsville all the way to California? How much money have they allocated for border security? Nothing. They've allocated money --

GLENN: I've got to get to the hostages, guys. I have to tell you, Congressman, shame on you for that response. That was the most belittling responsive ever heard. Shame on you.

CONGRESSMAN CUELLAR: Well, let me --

GLENN: No, sir, I'm going to change the subject now. You've had your peace. Let's talk about the 70 people that have been kidnapped now.

GLENN: Stop. In that same interview he just said -- I said, why aren't we putting our military on the border. We have 70 Americans that have been kidnapped. Why aren't we putting our military on the border? He said, well, we're just not going to do that, that's just out of the question.

Now let me go to another guy. Now, this guy is a conservative. Let me go to this guy who we had on. This is from the Heritage Foundation about giving Mexico $1.5 billion in military aid, in training, in operations, in helicopters. It's mind boggling. Listen to what this guy said.

VOICE: Well, you know, Glenn this is not your father's Mexico. Mexico is grown up. Mexico is an emerging market and a dynamic globalized economy. There is a strong vibrant middle class that wants to do better. They are sick of the corrupt politicians and --

GLENN: Stop. I can't take it anymore. I'm sorry. It's a vibrant economy? It's not my father's Mexico? You're right. It's not my father's Mexico. In my father's Mexico, I felt comfortable going down. This is just the Mexico that is allowing people to behead people. This is the one where the military is actively engaged with drug cartels. This is the Mexico that the -- shoot, the Department of State -- I'm trying to remember what this guy's name is -- the attorney general in Mexico has said they have lost control of many of the states of Mexico to the drug cartels. This is the Mexico, as I had a sheriff present on the TV show last night, that is literally feeding people that stand in the way of these drug cartels to lions, 19 miles south of our border. This is the Mexico that makes Escape from New York look pleasant. This is the Mexico that our State Department has warned Americans: You know what, be very careful if you go down to Mexico. This is the Mexico that I can no longer travel to Puerto Vallarta and feel comfortable if I'm just an average American. This is the Mexico that now has the drug cartels so weaponized. They have grenade launchers, rocket launchers, they have -- you know when you're pulled over by a cop and they have a little computer there? In Mexico they now have these SUVs and they pull up into America that they can access people's property taxes to find out exactly how much you make, to get some idea. They're called drive-by kidnappings. They pull you in off the street. They check the tax records. If you're worth anything, they do a quicky kidnapping and call and extort the money from your family: "We need $10,000 and we need it right now. Great, put it into this bank account, good. They watch it in the car, they get the money transferred. When the money is there, they kick your relative out of the car." Drive-by kidnappings. That ain't my father's Mexico. You're right. But we're being sold this load of goods that they're a good neighbor. Really? Tell me what the hell Mexico has done for us lately. Tell me what Mexico has done. Here's what Mexico has done. They've taken their citizens and they have printed brochures how to get across our border and then they have taken their citizens, the poorest of the poor, and they have shipped them to us because we're the second largest bankroll in their country. Their people shipping money back that they are making here under the table illegally is the second largest source of income in all of Mexico. Only, only beaten by oil. And why are they doing it? Because they can't handle their own corruption, they can't handle their own problems, they can't handle their own economy and they're taking the poorest of the poor and they're helping them. Can you imagine if we did that to Canada? Oh, how sweet things would be if we didn't have to worry about all of the healthcare problems, all of the problems of the poorest of the poor. If we could just give them maps to Canada and help them across the border into Canada where they could get on Canada's socialized healthcare. Then we wouldn't have to worry about it. That's exactly what Mexico is doing to us. You tell me how they're a good neighbor. I'm sorry, but I have had it up to here with this Mexico garbage, and the more I look into it, the more dismayed I am because we're being sold out for the -- excuse me. I almost swore, and I don't swear. We're being sold out for the gosh darn almighty dollar. We are being sold out by global corporations and politicians and internationalists. There's no frickin' reason why we've got a damn near border war going on and nobody wants to solve it. There's no reason for it.

Don't tell me that I'm based in hatred in Mexicans because that's not true. I have more compassion for the poor of Mexico than everybody else who's fighting against border security. Why? Because what we are doing to the poorest of the poor in Mexico by having them live here in the shadows is nothing less than modern day slavery.

When I read an article in the Westchester Times -- I'm sorry, the Westchester magazine, Westchester County is where the Clintons live. It's in New York. It's one of the wealthiest counties in all of America. When I read an article about illegal immigration, where they talk about how important it is for our economy, where they talk about just here in Westchester, there are restaurants that you eat at all the time and if you shut down the illegal immigrants, if you just ship them all home, there would be nobody to bus your tables. There would be nobody to go chop the onions. And then without any kind of look at the morality of it, they just talked about what it's like for these illegal aliens to live here: "They're working so hard and you know how they have to live?" Now, remember this is one of the wealthiest counties in the country. So imagine the average salary for an illegal alien, for an illegal alien is $15,000, in the richest county. So you know just to live in this part of the country, if you are a family of four and you live in New York City, the average family of four has to make $150,000 to live, not live well, to live. These people make $15,000 a year. They are living -- they are literally renting a bed. There are people, there are dirtbag people that will rent beds to them and they only have it for eight hours. They rent that bed out 24 hours a day in eight hour shifts. When their eight hours are up, get your butt out of bed. Can you imagine living your life like that? And without any kind of ties to morality. This magazine was going on about your onions and the price of your food and who would bus your table. This is slavery, man. I'll pay more. It's wrong! And how is it the conservatives are losing that battle? How is it the conservatives, they look like hate mongers. To say it's wrong to have people live in the shadows, it is wrong to have companies get rich on the back of people who can't speak English, have no shot at the American dream because they're living in the shadows. They came here across the border illegally because their own government won't take care of them down in Mexico and their own government is encouraging them to come here. Meanwhile, their own government is in bed with drug cartels where I can get 500 kilos of crystal meth from Nuevo Laredo, Mexico without any problem the next morning, 500 kilos. And we're going to give them listening devices. We're going to give them black helicopters. We're going to give them state-of-the-art technology and here's the best part. We're going to give them computer programs so they can access more information, but the United States government has insisted that all those databases remain in English. The only time this country has ever demanded that anything is in English is now, while we give them $1.5 billion? I don't think so. Phone calls coming up in just a second. Here is our -- I'm sorry. I'm pissed off beyond belief. 

END TRANSCRIPT

The Senate Judiciary Committee was set to vote on subpoenas to compel Twitter CEO Jack Dorsey and Facebook CEO Mark Zuckerberg to testify on alleged censorship and bias across their platforms. But that all changed when Republican committee members "expressed reservation about the maneuver," Politico reports.

Sen. Ted Cruz (R-Texas), who chairs Judiciary's Subcommittee on the Constitution, was definitely not one of the committee members with cold feet. On the radio program Tuesday, he told Glenn Beck that he's fighting "vociferously" to ensure Dorsey and others testify before the November 3rd election.

"Jack Dorsey and Mark Zuckerberg are both going to testify. They're are going to testify in person. They're going to testify before Election Day. That's what I think should happen," Cruz said. "That's what I'm fighting vociferously to happen. Right now, the companies are negotiating with the chairman's office to discuss terms to come voluntarily. I don't give a damn whether they come voluntarily or under subpoena. They need to testify in person and answer questions for the American people about why they are trying to steal this election, to suppress the free speech, and to censor the press."

The subpoenas would require Big Tech leaders to testify on the alleged "suppression and/or censorship" of two consecutive blockbuster stories from the New York Post. The first story was about emails that allegedly came from Hunter Biden's computer which are currently being investigated by the FBI, and the second was based on additional emails that allegedly showed communist China directly offering millions of dollars to then-Vice President Joe Biden.

"Big Tech stepped in, and they've done something they've never done before," Cruz explained. "We know that Big Tech has been censoring individual conservatives, trying to suppress conservative speech. But the step they took here is, they blocked if any individual user tried to share either of the New York Post stories, [they] were blocked ... Sharing a news story, from a major media outlet is part of democracy, part of free speech. And not only that, they blocked the New York Post itself. Right now, today, the New York Post is not being allowed to post its own damn stories on corruption. This is ridiculous. It's a threshold that's never been crossed before, of Silicon Valley oligarchs declaring the authority to determine what the press is allowed to report, and who is allowed to see it."

If we learned nothing from the media over the past 4 years it's that colluding with a foreign entity to either win an election or for personal gain is absolutely grotesque. Well, that depends on whether you have a (D) or (R) before your name anyway. President Trump was impeached on rumor and innuendo yet Joe Biden has all but skated on his corruption up to this point.

Below is a timeline that shows the level of corruption and the lengths the Biden's went to in order to build that family's wealth and influence internationally.

2009

In 2009, Joe Biden was the brand-new Vice President and John Kerry was a U.S. Senator. Just five months after Joe was sworn in, his son Hunter, and Kerry's stepson, Christopher Heinz, formed an international private equity firm called Rosemont Capital. It had several different branches, including one called Rosemont Seneca Partners.

2010

Just nine months after Rosemont Seneca opened its doors, Hunter Biden went to China for meetings with executives from China's biggest banks, and its sovereign wealth and social security funds. That's unheard-of access for a brand-new firm. Was it just coincidence that at the same time Hunter was meeting these Chinese bigwigs, his dad was meeting with China's then-president Hu Jintao in Washington DC at a nuclear security summit?

2011

In May 2011, Joe Biden met with Chinese officials for the U.S.-China Strategic & Economic Dialogue conference in Washington. Just two weeks later, Hunter Biden went to Taiwan for meetings with the same Chinese financial giants he'd met in China in 2010, plus some new ones.

2013

By December 2013, Joe Biden was enjoying his second term as VP, and John Kerry was now Secretary of State. That's when Joe traveled to Beijing on an extended official trip and Hunter traveled with him on Air Force Two.

During their stay, Vice President Biden met with President Xi and Hunter was mostly out of sight. We don't know exactly what he was up to, but the deal finalized between Rosemont Seneca and the Bank of China just ten days after the Bidens' trip pretty much gives it away. The most powerful financial institution in China formed a joint venture with tiny Rosemont Seneca to create a giant new investment firm called Bohai Harvest RST – the "RS" stands for Rosemont Seneca.

The firm is often called "BHR" for short.

Hunter Biden was a member of the Board. Remember, the Bank of China is government-owned, which means its business is completely intertwined with the goals of the Chinese Communist Party. BHR also got the freedom to operate in the newly created Shanghai Free-Trade Zone where, over the next six years, it would use $2.5 billion of Chinese government money to invest in China, as well as in other countries, including the U.S.

During their Beijing trip, Hunter also introduced Jonathan Li to his dad. Li is Hunter's business partner – he's CEO and Director of BHR.

Hunter arranged for Joe to meet Li in the lobby of the hotel where they stayed during their Beijing trip.

2014

In 2014, one of BHR's first major investments was in the China General Nuclear Power Corporation.

CGN is a Chinese government-owned nuclear power company that sold off a stake of the company to outside investors. Problem is, CGN was under FBI investigation for paying informants in the U.S. to steal nuclear secrets.

In 2016, the FBI arrested the ringleader of this nuclear espionage, a man named Allen Ho.

When they arrested Ho, he was using a random code generator to access funds being provided to him from – where else? – the Bank of China.

Yet while this FBI probe was going on, the son of the Vice President owned a stake in the company being investigated. And even after arrests were made, Rosemont Seneca did not alter its relationship with BHR, nor did it divest from CGN, even though it was stealing U.S. nuclear secrets.

2015

In 2015, BHR partnered with the Aviation Industry Corporation of China (AVIC) to buy an American company called Henniges for $600 million.

AVIC is a gigantic military contractor in China – think Lockheed Martin – that makes fighter jets, bombers and drones. BHR bought 49% of Henniges and AVIC bought 51%.

Henniges is a precision parts manufacturer specializing in anti-vibration technology. The stuff they make is known as "dual use" by the U.S. State Department, which means the technology can also have a military application.

Because of that, the deal had to be approved by the Committee on Foreign Investment in the U.S. (CFIUS) since it could have national security implications. The thing is, the American side of BHR – meaning Hunter Biden and his pals – had to know there were serious national security implications with AVIC.

The year before they formed a partnership with AVIC, the Wall Street Journal reported how AVIC stole technology related to the U.S. Air Force's F-35 stealth fighter and used it in its own stealth fighter for the Chinese.

How the Committee on Foreign Investment approved that deal remains a mystery. CFIUS does not publicly disclose any information regarding its decisions. Their findings are not publicly announced.

Interesting that China accounted for the largest share – with 74 transactions – approved by CFIUS during Obama's second term (2013-2015).

Under the umbrella of Rosemont Capital was a real estate company called Rosemont Realty. In 2015, a Chinese company called Gemini Investments bought a 75% stake in Rosemont Realty. The company was renamed Gemini Rosemont

Gemini brought $3 billion to the partnership with Rosemont, with the aim of buying "Class A institutional-quality commercial office properties in U.S. markets."

Red flag (literally) – Gemini Investments is a subsidiary of the China Ocean Shipping Company, a.k.a., "COSCO."

COSCO is a Chinese government-owned company. Its headquarters in Beijing is actually next to the headquarters of the Bank of China. COSCO is well-known for its close military ties. It's essentially a branch of the Chinese Navy.

2017

In 2017, BHR invested in Face++. That's the facial recognition phone app built by a Chinese company that is incorporated in a separate app built by the Chinese government. Police in the Xinjiang [Sin-jong] region of China use that app to keep tabs on citizens, and track and detain Uiguhr [Wee-ger] Muslims.

The app allows police easy access to data about Chinese Muslims including things like religious activity, blood type, and even the amount of electricity they use.

2018

In March 2018, a spokesman (Chris Bastardi) for Christopher Heinz (John Kerry's stepson) emailed The Hill to say that Heinz had "no operating role" in Rosemont Seneca, and that he was not involved in any of Rosemont's deals in China (which contradicts Schweizer's report in his book Secret Empires).

Chris Heinz was involved in Rosemont Capital. Rosemont Seneca was established under the same GP as Rosemont Capital, but Chris Heinz had no operating role in it. Chris and his family have no financial interest or investment in Bohai Harvest RST, he has never traveled to China, and he has never met with the firm's Chinese management team or investors.

2019

In October 2019, Hunter Biden's lawyer, George Mesires, said Hunter did not conduct any business on that 2013 trip to Beijing with his Dad.

Mesires said the timing of BHR's business license getting approved was purely coincidental because the paperwork had been submitted months before the Bidens' China trip.

According to Hunter's lawyer, the approval " was not related in any way, shape or form to Hunter's visit."

Hunter Biden finally stepped down from the BHR board last October (2019), but he DID NOT give up his 10% stake in the company.

When Bevan Cooney — the former "junior" business partner to Hunter Biden and Devon Archer — went to jail in 2019, investigative reporter and New York Times bestselling author Peter Schweizer thought he'd never gain access to the damning emails Cooney had promised. That all changed three weeks ago when Schweizer was given complete access to Cooney's gmail account.

Schweizer joined Glenn Beck on the radio program Tuesday to describe just some of the business deals revealed within these emails — like Hunter working with an alleged Russian criminal and with Chinese communists to secure their assets, or to secure one-on-one time with his dad, then-Vice President Joe Biden. And all of this new information is completely separate from the emails allegedly discovered on Hunter Biden's laptop recently reported by the New York Post.

"So, I want to make this clear. This [Cooney's emails] has nothing to do with what's on the laptop … It didn't come from [Rudy] Giuliani. It didn't come from anybody else, right?" Glenn asked Schweizer.

"That's absolutely correct," Schweizer confirmed.

He briefly explained how Cooney, a former Los Angeles nightclub owner, is currently serving a prison sentence for his involvement in a fraudulent business bond scheme with Biden and Archer. From prison, Cooney gave Schweizer written permission to access his Gmail account.

"This is really important," he noted. "We're not looking at printouts. Not looking at PDFs. We're actually in his Gmail accounts themselves, sifting through these emails. And there's a shocking amount of information about deals involving China, involving Russia, involving all sorts of things they were trying to pull off."

The king of "No Spin" and bestselling author of "Killing Crazy Horse," Bill O'Reilly joined Glenn Beck on this week's podcast to talk about the latest developments in Joe Biden's Ukraine and China corruption scandal. Now that some of the details are finally coming out in the open, does the average Democrat care? Maybe, but the Left doesn't seem to.

O'Reilly argued there's more hatred for President Donald Trump now than in 2016, and that some people hate President Trump so much that they'd rather vote for the "senile, corrupt" Joe Biden.

"Hunter got tens of millions of dollars from Ukraine, from Russia, from China because his father was vice president. I have no doubt in my mind," O'Reilly said. "But the hatred for Donald Trump overrides that in the minds of millions of viewers. They're saying, 'You know, we'd rather have the senile corrupt guy than Trump.'"

Asked by Glenn if any other Republican running for president would be met with the same level of vitriol, O'Reilly answered, "The Left is the Left. They don't like America. The want to redo the Constitution. They want to take some of our freedoms, like the Second Amendment and the First Amendment, and change them. And they want to destroy capitalism and replace it with a big centralized government in Washington that controls the economy … but I'm talking about the folks. I have liberal friends and I say to them, 'Do you not understand that when you vote for Biden, you're voting against your own self interest?'"
