Happy Green Holiday!



GLENN: Oh, this green nonsense. Why he had in USA Today, donations to environmental groups, they say, eco friendly apparel and housewares made of recycled materials, the Christmas gift. Really? To who? According to an October survey for Conservation International, whatever the heck they are, they found out that more Americans that ever want to give or receive green gifts this year. So is that up to, like, four people in America? Dan, Stu, let me ask you a question. If I gave you a, I don't know, a hemp bag for Christmas, would you be thrilled?

STU: Oh.

DAN: Oh, yeah, especially considering that New York Times article. I'd be psyched.

STU: I would actually I think, Glenn, use the temp bag to carry aerosol cans and coal.

GLENN: I believe I would, too. They are saying over 50% of the American people now want something green for Christmas. I say this study is what scientists call a load of bullcrap. I don't want to have a tote bag when I could have an iPhone. I don't want to have a goat donated in the my name to some third world country. I really don't. If I get a card from anyone who says I bought a goat for you and it's in Africa, I say, well, that's really good. That Christmas present sucks. I want something cool from the Sky Mall catalog!

You know, I've been thinking about getting Raphe a slot car set. I know, I know, it says in the catalog for 8 and older. He'll grow into it. I'll show him how. Can you imagine the disappointment in your kid's face if, you know, you were going to give him a cool present and instead you bought him a carbon offset? "No, but Raphe, Raphe, Raphe, Raphe, this is the way Daddy can drive you in the big SUV and we won't be hurting the Earth." We would both never stop crying, for the love of Pete. I don't care how good giving green is for the planet, I want stuff that takes 8 D batteries. I want stuff that lights up. I want stuff that makes noise. I want a remote control helicopter that looks like the one from Magnum PI. That's what I want. I want a life size C3PO from Sharper Image. I want a good old-fashioned Christmas. I don't want a hemp tote bag! I don't know a soul -- I take it back. Besides Liz who works for Fusion magazine, I don't know a soul that wants a hemp bag. You know what, get Liz on the phone. Can you get Liz on the phone? I bet you Liz doesn't even want a hemp bag. She'll say she does: "Oh, no, that would be good." But at home she would be, I can't believe he gave me a hemp bag. Oh, I hope she says yes because Christmas bonuses are right around the corner. I'm buying her a goat. No, no, I'm not going to because that would make her feel good because she would be like, and Glenn took his own money and bought a goat. I'm going to steal a wallet from some environmentalist and then I'm going to take and buy a goat for her.

Can you get her on the phone? Is she there?

STU: No, Glenn, she just walked away from her desk a few minutes ago.

GLENN: Did she? How convenient. You know why? Because she knows she has to be on record as an environmentalist saying, "yes, I'll take the hemp bag." I don't remember the amendment number. I'm sure it's in there some place, but I think we have a constitutional right to give and receive as much crap at Christmas as our credit cards will allow. I'm just sayin'. You know who doesn't like this stuff for Christmas? Terrorists. Yeah, terrorists. Instead of asking Santa for neat stuff like striped socks and pink shirts, they want you to ask for causes. Yeah, I'd say no way. I say if we start giving green, the terrorists win, and not on my watch, brother, not on my watch.

They actually have that green Christmas display. I was in San Francisco. They have this big green Christmas display in the windows. I couldn't take it. By the way, in the, you know, in the book I talk about what it's really all about. Hey, Stu, did you see what happened with the UN?

STU: No, not today.

GLENN: In the book I tell you what this is really all about, you know, and what the science is and how Al Gore has turned it all upside down on its head and actually inverted the two charts of CO2 and warming. It's actually the other way. Warming causes CO2. So I talk about all of that but then the real answer that I was looking for is why is this happening. Why is this happening? Because it's about global socialism. It's about international taxes.

The Law of the Sea treaty, you know what they want to do on the Law of the Sea treaty. That's give away our right to the ocean. We have to go to the UN. So if anybody ever wants to drill in the ocean, they'll have to go to the UN and ask permission. And they'll have to pay for that. And they have to have two sites that they want to drill in. And the UN says, okay, these two sites, our geologists have looked at it. You get that site but you're also going to drill this site but we get everything that we find in that site. Okay? That's what the Law of the Sea treaty does. It's fantastic, if you're a communist.

Here's what it's really all about. Look at this. Last year's budget at the UN was $4.17 billion. Now next year's budget is $7 billion. That's kind of weird, isn't it? $3 billion increase for the United Nations? What's going on with that? What's happening there? How are they going to pay for that? They say it's the largest increase in history. How are you going to pay for it? Ah, carbon taxes. Wouldn't that be great? Wouldn't that be great? If we could just tax everybody, that will solve everything.

You know, let me ask you this: Do you think one of the tenets, the central tenets of global warming is wrong? Do you think it's possible that one of the central tenets of global warming is wrong? No. Of course not. Absolutely not. I mean, unless you look at the facts, absolutely not. If you watch An Inconvenient Truth, you'll see Al Gore telling you how extreme the weather is getting and how it's getting worse and worse. Not in 100 years in the future but right now it's getting worse and worse and worse. Really? It will fact is it's been getting much worse for a while now. The Sunday times from the U.K. had an article that echoes what I talk about in the first chapter of "An Inconvenient Book," that the death rate due to extreme weather has dropped by around 98.7% from the 1920s to today. CO2 has been skyrocketing. Everything's getting worse. We're all going to die.

Well, wait a minute. We're all going to die? Death rates from extreme weather have gone down by almost 100%. Research was done by Indur Goklany -- I think that's how you say his name.

STU: Goklany maybe?

GLENN: Anyway, we talked to him on the air about a year ago. He wrote a book called The Improving State of the World. It gives all sorts of stats about how our air is more cleaner, our water is more pure, we're avoiding death now better now than ever before. The most obvious example, and there are tons of them, is heating oil, natural gas. How many people in Iowa right now would freeze to death? How many people do you think would freeze to death if it wasn't for natural gas heating oil?

By the way, to put it in perspective, you're about 80 times more likely to die from TB than from extreme weather. So what's the opposing side? The opposing side, Greenpeace, you know, went right into the exact strategy of defense that they always do. You know, it's like they're reading An Inconvenient Book and, you know, then they wrote the press release from that and that is the research group that released this, known for being in the pay of the world's biggest oil company. That's, they're in bed with big oil. You are either too stupid to get it or you're part of it. That's the Progressive way. That's exactly what the Progressives used to do around the turn of the century, the ones that Hillary Clinton is modeling herself after. The Progressives, they had one strategy. This is the way. It is socialism and if you don't get it, you're either too stupid and just need reeducation or you're part of that big evil corporate monolith that's trying to stop it all.

They didn't say that the research was wrong. It just must be the big evil oil has a plot to keep people alive to move the statistics in their favor, which they kind of do. See heating oil.

I was watching the reviews of the book come out on Amazon.com. I love these people. I mean, I laugh because they have clearly not read the book. One was said, said that my claim on saving lives, the deaths from natural disasters have gone down 98.7% since the 1920s. They say that claim was misleading that, quote, yes, these things are true but they have nothing to do with each other, end quote. Really? Why is that? I mean, Al Gore says most of our people live on the coastlines, that we now have this coastline mentality. We've all moved out there. Death should be going up. The reason for the massive drop in weather-related deaths comes from innovations, better warning systems, better flood defensives, stronger buildings, earthquakes. Why is it, why is it every time there's an earthquake in Mexico, all these people die, but earthquakes can happen in San Francisco and people survive. Why is it? Is got on our side? I'll have to ask Mike Huckabee's God to find out. Is God on our side? No. Innovation is on our side, American ingenuity is on our side. These incredible innovations built on the back of cheap energy and strong economies. You know, it's not something that you have to guess at. Look at the difference, what happens to us, you know, in Haiti when a hurricane hits, between Haiti and what happens in the United States of America. Maybe the solution isn't trying to control global weather and instead just keep as much of the $26.5 trillion that Al Gore wants to spend on climate change, make our economies, our warning systems, our buildings and our flood defenses stronger.

Wait. Wait, wait. I just had an idea. Think how many cool slide shows you could make with $26.5 trillion. Unless the Government is making them, I bet they can make a lot of slide shows but maybe it's just me.


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.


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.


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?


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.


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.


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.


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.


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.


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.


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?'"
