GLENN: This is absolutely amazing. We have had almost a 700 point swing in the Dow in 15 minutes. We were losing almost 700 points. We're now only down two points. This is the most amazing thing to watch. I hope you are watching it from the sidelines. This is the most amazing thing to watch and yet it is a distraction. This is the cakes and circuses. This is what America unfortunately is -- oh, we're up 45 points now. This is what America is watching, and we gauge everything now, "how's the Dow doing, how's the Dow doing." Forget about the Dow. Forget about the Dow. What is happening behind the scenes. Are we -- you know what, I'll tell you, I really, truly believe that there was finally someone on the campaign trail that said exactly the way at least I feel and I think a lot of America feels today. I want you -- it wasn't one of the candidates. Don't get your hopes up. Listen to this question that was spoken from a member of the audience at a McCain rally.

VOICE: Welcome to Wisconsin. This thing is working. Thanks for coming. I'm mad! I'm really mad! [APPLAUSE]. And what's going to surprise you, it's not the economy. It's the socialists taking over our country.

GLENN: This guy -- stop it, stop it. This guy should run for President. I know nothing about him except that sentence. This guy should run for President of the United States. Where is anyone saying that? We have these people in Washington taking our country over and it is being stolen from us. They are now talking about socializing all the banks, nationalizing all of the banks, something I told you they were going to do months and months ago, and it ain't going to stop at the banks, gang. It's going to go -- it's going to go financial sector, then it's going to go transportation, then it's going to go energy. They have got their fingers in the pie and if anybody says, well, at the end of this we're going to have to get their fingers back out, you are not going to get their fingers back out! Government doesn't get smaller. This is why John -- this is how John McCain can win! But I don't think he believes it. Sarah Palin does. Smaller government! Nationalizing mortgages? What! Smaller government. Get them out! Let us fix it. These are the architects who have brought us this. You are saving all of the people who brought this down on us. Those leaders in congress, those in the White House, those on Wall Street, those in the financial sector. Why are we saving the people who brought us this? You want to nationalize all the mortgages that have been in default? Who is in default right now? Rich and poor, those who bought more than they could afford.

The economy -- gang, be honest. Your economy is not that bad right now. I don't mean that you don't have struggling, I don't mean you are not having a hard time. I'm not dismissing the people who have 150,000, the 150,000 who have lost jobs. I'm not talking about those. Gas is down almost a buck. You have more money in your pocket most likely today than you did a month ago or two months ago. The fundamentals of your economy, the things that you need on day-to-day spending. What's changed is fear. You think you're more broke. You might actually be more broke in your 401(k) but for spending today, it hasn't hit you yet. So who has it hit? Who are we rescuing? We're rescuing the people who bought too much house.

A year from now we're not going to be saying that. A year from now it's going to be somebody else. But why are we rescuing all of the people who brought us this problem? You played by the rules. You didn't buy too much house. You didn't get yourself into crushing debt. "Well, Glenn, too many people are going to be suffering." Yes, yes, a lot of people are going to be suffering. A lot, an unspeakable amount of people are going to be suffering. But you know what? We're not living in Africa! The difference between our suffering and our poor and those in Africa is dramatic. Why? Because we have the rule of law. Because we still have the ability to pull ourselves out. Because we're not ruled by gangs and thugs and criminals -- well, I take that one back. This country is being stolen and it is being stolen -- keep your eye on something else. Please read up on something else. The unions, the unions are about to -- America is going to change after this election and it is going to change overnight. Look at what's happening with ACORN. We're going to talk to Pat here down in a little while in Houston. In Houston, more fraud, more voter fraud. It's happening all over the country and it's happening through an organization called ACORN. ACORN, not just friends with Barack Obama. He can't say, "Well, I don't really know them." He was a guy who was in, he trained the people in ACORN. He was a trainer. He said, we're like family. You bet they are like family. And they are perpetrating fraud on this election at a scale we have never seen before. And while everybody's watching the Dow, that's what's going on. While everybody's watching the Dow, our government is just going to take money and just buy the banks. This is socialism.

Did you see the story in the Washington Post today? Not the Washington times. The Washington Post. Here it is. The worst financial crisis since the Great Depression is claiming another casualty. American style capitalism. Since the 1930s U.S. banks were the flag ships of Americans' economic might and emulation by other nations were -- I'm sorry. I have to put my glasses on -- were fiercely free market system in the United States was expected and encouraged but the market turmoil that is draining the nation's wealth and upended Wall Street now threatens to put the banks at the heart of the U.S. financial system at least partly in the hands of the government. That's why that guy's mad as hell, because you know it and I know it. You know what's happening. We are being socialized. And I don't mean we're going to be -- oh, we're going to be like Norway? No, we're not going to be like Norway. We're being socialized rapidly all in the name of, "Quick, do something," and gang, it ain't gonna last long. You don't socialize, you don't turn into Russia as Russia's collapsing. It's like the Soviet Union. Instead of saying, hey, we're going to go capitalist; you know what, we're going to do more social programs. You collapse faster. It doesn't make any sense. You know it and I know it. Well, where are the politicians that are standing up and saying stop! Right now, stop! That's how John McCain wins this election, if he could say it and believe it, but I don't think he does. Sarah Palin believes it. You believe it.

All right. Back to this guy.

VOICE: Sit down. I'm not done. Thank you. You are going to have to give me --

VOICE: When I see her --

VOICE: Go ahead.

VOICE: Let me finish, please.

VOICE: Yes.

GLENN: Stop, stop. Don't laugh at that. Cheer him again! Cheer him again. John McCain works for you. "Let me finish, please." Well, you're going to have to -- "No, I don't. I'm a citizen of the United States. I pay your frickin' salary. Out of those seven houses, beer bought maybe five of those houses. You being in the Senate, I purchased those two houses. Sit down. Shut up. I want you to listen to me. Where is my defender? Where is my representative?" Don't laugh at that. Applaud for somebody. With respect, with dignity, with peace in our hearts we need to still tell our people in congress and in the White House, "You work for me." It's time for you to listen because I've heard you two talk for two years now and you're not saying anything that I want to hear. So maybe you should start listening to me because it's clear to me you guys don't get it. All right, go ahead.

VOICE: Excuse me.

VOICE: Thank you. I think it's so important in today's country what we're really missing out on, when you have an Obama, Pelosi, and the rest of the hooligans up there going to run this country, we've got to have (inaudible). (Applause).

GLENN: Okay, stop. I want to play one more piece of audio for you. I want to play one more piece of audio for you. Now, I want to make it very, very clear. Barack Obama makes it very clear, he doesn't have anything to do with this organization. That's right, he doesn't. He doesn't have anything to do with this organization. But if I were supported, if I were on the air and, you know, you found out that all of the extreme -- if you were listening to me and I could say, "You know what, I have nothing to do with it," but you found out my biggest supporters are the Black Panthers and the nation of Islam, wouldn't you say, "Well, wait a minute, wait a minute, there's something to his message. What is attracting them to his message," right? If you are listening to me and the KKK says, oh, you've got to listen to Glenn Beck and they are doing all kinds of campaigns for me, wouldn't you say, wait a minute, what does the KKK like about his message? That doesn't mean that I would endorse the KKK, but if the KKK is endorsing me and pushing me, you would say, wait a minute, what is it I'm missing here? Because I don't hear that KKK message. What am I missing? Listen to this, and this video should be played by John McCain.

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?'"
