Huckaboom

GLENN BECK PROGRAM


BEGIN TRANSCRIPT

GLENN: Mike Huckabee, I don't even -- I mean, I don't even know what's going on here. First of all, my problem with Mike Huckabee is -- there's a couple of things. One, it's the same kind of problem that I think I have with Mitt Romney but at least Mitt Romney will be square with you. My problem with Mitt Romney is I think there are a lot of people who get themselves wrapped up into the gospel and they find themselves at a place where they think government should be the big babysitter, that government should, you know, play Jesus and that's the last place I would want government, and I don't mean in the churches. I mean I don't want our government helping people, that it's for us to do. It is exactly what our founding fathers talked about and thank God I heard it for the first time I really heard it clearly from Mitt Romney last week that without religion, freedom cannot exist and without freedom, religion cannot exist. They must coexist with each other and it's exactly what our founding fathers said. We must be a religious and moral people. They didn't just say a moral people and a spiritual people. They said a religious and moral people. Why? Well, because as Mike Huckabee pointed out yesterday, and I think this is a great point, he says -- let me see here. He says that government doesn't have the answer. I'm often asked, quote, why taxes are so high and government is so big. It's because the faith we have in local churches have become so small. If we've been doing what we should have, giving a dime from every dollar to help the widows, the orphans and the poor, we wouldn't now be giving 50 cents of every dollar to a government that's doing what we should have been doing all along.

That's exactly right. Unfortunately I don't think he believes it. He says, I didn't get into politics because I thought government had a better answer. I got into politics because I knew government didn't have the answer. The real answers lie in accepting Jesus Christ into our lives. He says government doesn't have the answer but its arrogance makes it act as though it does. But yet he doesn't -- I mean, he really hasn't met a tax increase that he doesn't like. He wants to create that bigger government.

Here's another story, Mike Huckabee again, that makes me question. What I'm afraid of Mike Huckabee on is that this guy's compassion is misplaced. This guy is a preacher first. Well, you know what? God bless you, but there is something, there is something to be said. I don't want a preacher in office. I want a guy who understands the laws and you know what? I'll take -- you can put Jesus Christ in office because Jesus Christ will understand that there are penalties for crimes. He will also have compassion, but he will also say, give to Caesar what is Caesar's, and I don't think the Lord is going to be saying to anybody anytime soon, "You know what, forget about that compassion thing. Walk over that homeless person. Give your money to the government. Pay higher taxes, let the government..." he's not going to say that. He's going to say get personally involved. And if you are personally involved, then you don't have to pay for all the services. That's the way it's supposed to work. But some of these people that get so wrapped up in the gospel principles of compassion get so very lost because they think you feel compassionate on April 15th. Well, I got news for you. I never have felt that on April 15th. In fact, it makes me less compassionate and I think it makes the government, the whole country less compassionate because what you do is when you see a problem, instead of getting involved yourself, you say, why hasn't the government fixed this? Do you know what I pay in taxes? Why is this person out there? And you get pissed off.

Now, there's a name that if you don't know yet, you will. His name is Glen Green. This guy is somebody who took Chinese martial arts sticks and took an 18-year-old woman and damn near beat her to death. Now, while she's clinging to life because he beat her so brutally, while she's clinging to life, what does he do? He rapes her. Then after he's done raping her, he then takes her and dumps her body in a bayou and her hand is reaching up as if pleading for help. That's how they find the body. The guy goes to jail. Mike Huckabee goes and pushes for parole with this guy. He pushes for parole, the guy gets released, he kills again. Now, so far Mike Huckabee hasn't answered on why he wanted that parole, why he made that decision. I'd like to hear that answer because I know that he met with his good friend, another preacher, a preacher of the guy who was in jail and that's when he said, you know what, maybe we should really -- misplaced compassion. Let's live the principles of forgiveness. Excuse me! Not without punishment and not blindly.

I think the Republicans are -- and I would like to talk, and I've been saying for a while I've got questions for Mike Huckabee. I'd like to have them answered. He again was on this Spanish debate last night talking about his compassion for illegal immigrants. You know what? I've got compassion as well: Get the hell out of my country. Now go fix your own country. Don't screw mine up. I've got enough problems over here to deal with. I don't need other people coming in and causing more problems in my country. We're not going to be able to help anybody if we're bankrupt but see, that's the one thing liberals don't understand. They think you can just keep taking money from the rich and then they will continue to be rich, and the poor will be rich. It doesn't work that way. You continue to take money from the rich. They can't invest. They can't spend any money and so what happens when you take the money from the rich? They are all of a sudden poor and now who's going to build anything? Who's going to start new businesses? You know, let me tell you something I have not said before on the air. A lot of my money is no longer in dollars. I don't invest in American companies. I have a few. I don't invest in any one particular company because I never want anybody to say, oh, look, he's trying to -- I don't invest in one company. I'm invested in funds. But most of my money is out of this country right now and you can say that that's un-American. You can say that all you want because you know what? When I considered it, I thought to myself, jeez, is that un-American? And you know what I decided? It's not un-American. If this country is field goal to be flushed down the toilet and we're going to be made a socialist country, it is going to fail and somebody who actually believes in the Constitution, somebody who actually believes in freedom, somebody who actually has some money should probably protect that money because somebody's going to need to come back in and rebuild this country. We're going to need some people who actually believe in freedom and the Constitution and the free market system and you know what? I ain't having all my money flushed down the toilet. How am I going to create a single job if my money is gone?

We are in for trouble because they keep penalizing the people who create jobs. And as they continue to penalize, the value of the dollar goes overseas. You've got Iran today taking their money out of the dollar. Now, this is no surprise. They are an enemy. But you don't want a lot of dominoes falling. They won't sell any oil to anybody now unless you buy without using the dollar. Well, that's a problem, huh? You start having a couple of countries do that and your dollar is worthless. Countries hold the U.S. dollar instead of gold. Why do you think gold is -- what is it now? $850 an ounce? Why do you think it's going up? Because they know that nothing is of real value. If the United States dollar is falling, there is no real value. You've got to find something that has intrinsic value. It used to be the dollar. It doesn't anymore. It doesn't have intrinsic value.

I need somebody that understands -- as President of the United States, I need somebody that understands the Constitution, I need somebody who understands the problem that we're facing, and Mike Huckabee does understand the problem we're facing. Mike Huckabee understands that we're on the verge of losing our constitutional Republic. He knows that, and I like him for it, and I have liked him for his honesty and integrity but I have always had a question of his misplaced compassion and I'd liked to hear him respond to that. I have also, I have a real problem with him actually saying, "Well, I don't know if I wouldn't vote for a Mormon." How dare you. How dare you. You're a leader. Your theology is going to stop you from voting for somebody who is a good man? Mike, that's beneath you. Now, if you have a problem, you come out and say it. If you say no, I cannot vote for a Mormon because of their theology, then say it. Are you telling me you haven't made up your mind? You don't know? Bullcrap. You're playing politics and that is beneath you. Maybe it's not. My impression of you, Mike Huckabee, is that you are a decent man. That's not the kind of game a decent man plays. Don't turn into a smarmy politician because that's not what America needs. Say what you mean and mean what you say. You're going to vote for a Mormon or not vote for a Mormon? That doesn't mean you are going to vote for Mitt Romney over you. I get it.

Are Mormons Christians or not? No problem if you say no. Fine. I disagree with you. No problem. Kind of an insult to anybody like me who, you didn't know me before, Mike, and I got to tell you something. Nothing could have changed me except for the power of Jesus. That's it. Nothing could have changed me. I'm fundamentally different. So I mean, it's kind of a slam, you know, to all the work that he's been doing on me, quite honestly, but I understand. You don't see it that way, that's fine. We live in America. But don't play the games. I'm tired of game playing, tired of them.

END TRANSCRIPT

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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.
