Who Is Barbara West?

GLENN: Stu, can we get this anchor on? I think she asks some of the best questions I've heard. Finally somebody had the cojones to ask Barack Obama or Joe Biden an actual question.

STU: Yeah, we'll look into it. I don't know if she is doing press or not, if she wants any more attention but we will take a look at it.

GLENN: She should. Finally somebody -- you know, let me just say this real quick. The press is playing a very, very dangerous game, very dangerous game. They are playing a game right now that they are hoping that Barack Obama will come in and they will take away the alternative media. I really, truly believe this is what's going on. They are convincing themselves, as I heard Rush Limbaugh say the other day on Fox, he said, you know, they just want to show that they still have power, that they can still pick an election and pick a winner. I think that's true but I think it goes deeper than that. I think they also know that the Fairness Doctrine is coming and if they can clear the deck of any competition. The New York Times has been relegated to junk bond status. The New York Times. The New York Times is going out of business. Mark my words. They will be too important and too big to fail. So then they will be directly in bed with the government. They are positioning themselves and warning. Be careful what you wish for, reporters. Be careful what you wish for, journalists, be careful what you wish for, media corporations, because I think you are about to get it. And if you really think that the people who tell us global warming, global warming, the science is settled and you need to shut your mouth, you need to be, that you are akin to a Holocaust denier. If you think that's going to help freedom of speech to give those people power, you are going to enjoy a freedom of speech like you've never seen before, unless you've reported on things in Venezuela. You know, things like Sean Penn visiting. Or if you've reported on something in Putin's Russia. So here's a brave anchor that asks legitimate questions of Joe Biden this weekend. Here it is.

VOICE: Senator Obama now famously told Joe the plumber he wanted to spread his wealth around. A Gallup poll showed 84% of Americans prefer government focus on improving government positions and creating more jobs in the U.S. as opposed to distributing wealth. Isn't Senator Obama's comment a potentially crushing political blunder?

BIDEN: Absolutely not. The only person who has spread the wealth around has been George Bush and John McCain's tax policy. They have devastated the middle class. For the first time since --

GLENN: Stop. I just have to tell you, the only one who has spread the wealth around is George Bush's tax cuts. Wait a minute. What? That's what Obama says he wants to do. He wants to share the wealth with the tax cuts. How is that spreading it around? I thought spreading it around to you guys is a good thing. He goes on to battle nonsense but here it is.

BIDEN: The American people make over 21% of the income in America. That wasn't the way before George Bush became President. All we want is the middle class to once again have a fighting chance. That's why we focus all of our efforts regardless, give them a tax break. And John McCain doubles down on Bush's tax cut. That's $300 billion in new tax cuts for the largest corporations in America and the wealthiest Americans. We don't think that's --

GLENN: Stop just a second. That's just because what you're giving $3,000 bonuses to anybody who creates a job in America. $3,000 one-time bonus? That's not going to get any corporation in America. Maybe, maybe a small, small business will create a job, but I doubt it. I seriously doubt it. Not even possible, especially when you're talking about giving the unions all of the powers. This is not going to create any jobs. A $3,000 -- you are darn right they should -- we have the second highest tax rate on the planet Earth. Why do you think they are going to India? We have litigation. It's impossible to fire people. Healthcare is out of control. Litigation is out of control. Why the hell do you think -- it's common sense. Clear the way for businesses. And I don't mean just the businesses, that while you hate them, you seem to be ringing the bell that they are all too big to fail. I mean clear the decks for small businesses. Clear the decks for people who have dreams. Clear the decks for people who do it. Clear the decks for people who get up every morning and bust their ass. And why do they bust their ass? Because no matter what you people in Washington try to tell us, no matter what your community organizers try to tell us, we still believe we can make it. We still believe that in this country it provides the opportunity that if you get up early and you work late and you work hard, you'll be able to do it. Get out of the way of those people, the people who are actually working hard every day, that aren't looking for a handout, that don't want a handout, that are insulted by a handout. Get out of the way of the people who know if you hand anything out, you're gonna expect something in return, and I don't want anything from you, Uncle Sam. I want smooth roads. I want our country to have safety. When you can get those two things right, maybe we'll talk about you doing a little more. In the meantime, get those two things mastered before you start asking me to call you master.

He goes on about Marxism. Listen to this.

VOICE: You may recognize this famous quote: From each according to his abilities, to each according to his needs. That's from Karl Marx. How is Senator Obama not being a Marxist if he intends to spread the wealth around?

BIDEN: Are you joking? Is this a joke?

VOICE: No.

BIDEN: Or is that a real question?

VOICE: That's a question.

BIDEN: He is not spreading the wealth around. He is talking about giving the middle class an opportunity to get back the tax breaks they used to have. What is --

GLENN: Stop just a second. Could you do me a favor, Stu? First of all, George Bush gave tax cuts to everybody.

STU: Yep.

GLENN: Dan, could you give me the audio from Joe the plumber. I don't want to quote it. I want you to hear about it. He's not talking about spreading the wealth around is Joe Biden's remark. Listen carefully to the words of Barack Obama as he's talking to Joe the plumber.

VOICE: This man's going to tax me more, isn't he?

OBAMA: It's not that I want to punish your success. I just want to make sure that everybody who is behind you, that they have got a chance at success, too. I think when you spread the wealth around, it's good for everybody.

GLENN: Stop. I think when you spread the wealth around... I can't -- America, I'm begging you, when are you going to wake up? Not you. Not you. I know you've been awake and you've been so frustrated. You can't take it, either. I'm asking you to go ask your -- America, stand up. America, let your voice be heard. Let your voice be heard in the traditional American way, even a ballot box. But wake those dummies up. Wake those people up. I'm sorry for calling them dummies. Wake those people up who you know have gone back to sleep because they believe all of them are like this. Oh, they are going to do whatever they want anyway. Wake those people up, if they have been so tired from busting their butt every day and not being able to get ahead. Wake those people up and say, I know it's easy for you to go to sleep. I know you don't want to look at this. I know you don't believe the media anymore. I know you don't know what to believe is true, but listen to your gut. Do you believe we are in troubled times. Do you believe in the Constitution anymore. Go back to the question with Marx where she quotes Marx, each according to his -- from each according to his ability. In other words, the more you can make, the more I can take. To each according to his need. I take it from you, you make more, I take more; you make less, I give you more. It is a flattening. It is giving trophies to everybody that runs the race. There are no winners; there are no losers. There are winners. There are losers. Losers are the ones that don't try. Losers are the ones who say I can't make it. Losers are the ones who say the system's stacked against me. The system has been stacked against people for all time. Only God can even out the system. And God never, never, never has said take it from someone else. God says to you as an individual, give it to someone else. Give it to someone else.

Someone like Barack Obama will then say, yes, exactly right, that's what Jesus did. He was the ultimate community organizer. No, he wasn't! He never said have the government force you to give it to the government so they could give it to someone else. The only person that should be in your way is God. No one. Remember the food chain that professor of law, which he is not a professor of law but nobody seems to correct him on that -- Barack Obama seems to misunderstand is that in the food chain according to our founding fathers, God is number one, people are number two and government is number three. In Barack Obama's world, God he may say is number one but for a lot of people that believe in Marxism, God doesn't exist. God is only for the weak. So government replaces God. And even if you do believe in God and you're a Marxist or you're a progressive, to quote Hillary Clinton, in the early 20th century definition -- look it up. It would scare the pants off you. And you do believe in God -- you still put government between the people and God. Government doesn't tell me when the debate is settled. Government doesn't tell me what to think. Government doesn't teach my children. Government doesn't tell me when I can own a gun. Government doesn't tell me anything. I speak for myself. I'm in charge of my own destiny. I am in charge. God doesn't even make the choices for me. For anybody who's religious, you'll recognize someone trying to take away your choices, someone who is trying to take away and put someone in between so we can all finish together, we can all come back safe and sound, that none of us will have a booboo or a scraped knee or any kind of pain. You'll recognize that plan. Long before Obama or Karl Marx or anybody else had that idea, that plan was first forwarded in the spiritual world by, what was his -- oh, I remember, Satan. Lord God, give me the glory and I will bring all of your children home to you. I will return them all safely. No. No was the answer. No was the answer.

Some of them are going to have a tough time but they've got to make it through by themselves. They have to prove themselves. Obama is either trying to play God or he's trying to play the role of Jesus, the great redeemer, the redeeming power, the great equalizer, the holders of the keys of the atonement. He's neither. He's a politician. He might be the next President of the United States. That's all he is. That's all he is.

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?'"
