Happy Green Holiday?

GLENN BECK PROGRAM


BEGIN TRANSCRIPT

GLENN: Let me ask you this. Have you been to the department store here in New York called Barney's?

STU: I'm going to go no on that.

GLENN: Okay. This is the big department store that is now owned by the Chinese.

STU: (Gasping).

GLENN: Yes.

STU: No.

GLENN: Do not try to eat any of their clothing.

STU: Dipped in lead?



White Christmas? Why bother when you can have a Green Holiday!

GLENN: Covered in lead paint. But Barney's, or is it Dubai? I think it's China. Not sure. It's one of those countries I don't really trust.

STU: Is there any country you trust, though? I mean, you're Glenn Beck. You don't trust our country.

GLENN: Never had bad chocolate from Switzerland.

STU: All right.

GLENN: They even had that big suspicious horn that they are dragging around...

STU: The Ricola horn.

GLENN: Yes, they have that horn. Do you trust somebody coming into your -- what, it's just a horn that I use on a mountainside. I think I'd put that person away. I'm sorry. I'll going to need to spend some more time with your paperwork. I don't think I have a reason to trust Switzerland, but I do, yes.

STU: So you've got Switzerland.

GLENN: I have Switzerland. Let's not dwell on this because I don't know how many more I can name.

STU: This is about it.

GLENN: But I want you to go to -- I wouldn't have a problem if Switzerland owned Barney's department store because they would have good chocolate.

STU: Oh, no, Sweden owns Ikea, right?

GLENN: I don't know.

STU: How do you feel about the Swedes? Volvos, Ikea, loganberry juice?

GLENN: May I just say this about -- is that where?

STU: It's always in every Ikea I go to. It's the only place it's ever been sold is at an Ikea. It's a furniture store. Why am I buying juice there?

GLENN: May I tell you something about the Dutch or the Swedes? What were we talking about?

STU: I think the Swedes and the Switzerlandese which I think is the official -- 

GLENN: The Dutch and the -- they are the same?

STU: Not even close.

GLENN: It's like New Jersey and New York. It's the same thing. They're both corrupt, right?

STU: So you are saying the Swedes are corrupt?

GLENN: Have you been to an Ikea, the meatballs, they make you buy furniture that you don't want to buy.

STU: Why am I buying meatballs and juice at a furniture store?

GLENN: I have no idea.

STU: Meatballs in large quantities, too. You are not getting four meatballs. You are getting pounds and pounds of Swedish meatballs at a store where you are buying futons. It makes no sense.

GLENN: May I just point out that in the morning -- this is what this started out as. Somebody said let's make Swedish meatballs at the furniture store and somebody else said, that's a stupid idea; nobody's going to want meatballs at the furniture store. And the first guy on that first day, his ass was on the line. And so one customer came for lunch, he knew he had to get rid of the meatballs and he was like, yeah, you want meatballs from the furniture store? And they're like, yeah, I guess; my wife has been dragging them around forever. Anything. Just whatever. I was thinking about eating an ottoman a little while ago but then meatballs has actual meat in it? And then the guy behind the counter said, well, I'm not really sure but ya, ya, sure. So then he takes the meatballs and he has to put them on a huge plate because he has to get rid of them. Otherwise, you know, the big Swede is going to say that was the dumbest thing I've ever heard. And so now that one fat guy who had the big bowl of meatballs now buys all of his furniture there and has told all of his fat friends, buy your furniture there because your wife will walk around and you'll have an hour worth of eating meatballs and that's what happened.

STU: I may go to Snopes on this one.

GLENN: Don't do that.

STU: That is true, that is the guy paradise in Ikea because they just lump meatballs on your plate while your wife does the shopping.

GLENN: Too much food shaped like a snow flake. Men do not eat anything besides a Christmas cookie shaped like a snow flake.

STU: Name one food that they have at Ikea that's shaped like a snow flake.

GLENN: Oh, all of their food is -- 

STU: Just one. I don't need all. Just one.

GLENN: One of those Waffle Hoffen Floffers.

GLENN: There's no Waffle Hoffen Floffers there.

STU: That's not a word. No language there's not a word that equates.

GLENN: They make their furniture out of the same wood they make their shoes out of.

STU: Again that is another country again.

GLENN: No, it's not. They are the same country.

STU: Again you're totally off.

GLENN: Hey, let me ask you this. New Jersey, New Jersey, New York, same country?

STU: Yes.

GLENN: Yes, thank you. My point has been made.

STU: No, it's not made at all.

GLENN: Yes, it is. They were smart when they made wooden shoes because they had the floods all the time. Little boy, keep your finger in the frickin' dike! And the little boy was like, no, no, that George Bush is blowing it up, he's on the other side in goggles and he's trying to blow up the dike! Keep the finger in the dike!

And while he was there, and we all know what happened to him. He was killed in that tragic dike explosion done by the Bush administration. But everybody else, sure, a lot of them may have died, they lost their house, they lost their money, they lost everything, they lost their jobs, their livelihood but they didn't lose their shoes. Why? Because they made them out of wood and the wood floated. That was genius in, like, 1601! Now, not a good idea. Move on. And any country whose main export is a tulip.

STU: What country are you talking? You are all over the place. You are all over Europe.

GLENN: No, I'm not.

STU: Yes, you are.

GLENN: Same country.

STU: No, they're not the same country at all.

GLENN: Really? European Union.

STU: You're like a student traveler saying as hostels. You're all over the stupid country. You have no idea where you are and you've been drunk for most of your life. All three of those are true, by the way.

GLENN: You got me there.

Okay. So anyway, you've got to go to Barney's which I believe is owned by China or Dubai.

STU: Are those the same countries?

GLENN: Pretty much.

STU: Am I allowed into Barney's because I think you have to make 24 figures to walk into that store.

GLENN: No, you have to walk -- Barney's, the thing is any store in New York that has paparazzi that hangs out at it, you know it's a store that's going to piss you off. Not just because the price. You're like, it's a T-shirt, man. It's a T-shirt. No, this is not just any T-shirt. This is a white 100% cotton T-shirt. It's $800! Yes, it is, and it is on sale. Usually it's $1,000.

STU: See, I feel like Barney's would be a little too stodgy for paparazzi. I feel like you're going to get like -- it doesn't feel like -- 

GLENN: No, it has paparazzi.

STU: A young trendy store.

GLENN: They have paparazzi because that's when Johnny Depp comes in from.

STU: He goes to Barney's? I feel like he goes to a little boutique.

GLENN: They are all frauds.

STU: Let me ask you this. Any flash bulbs going off?

GLENN: So what I'd like you to do -- 

STU: Right here, you can take the picture right here. You can walk -- 

GLENN: Hey, they didn't know I was coming, all right? Adam went ahead and announced but they probably didn't hear. Anyway, so I have to send you out with a Flip video. Are you in the city today or are you leaving right away?

STU: I have to leave today.

GLENN: Okay. On Monday you've got to go. In fact, let's do this on Monday's show.

STU: Okay.

GLENN: And then you can just, you can videotape it and then we'll show it on the TV show that night. It is the Barney's windows. This is the big thing, you know, in New York. They do all the windows, you know, for Christmas. Barney's is environmentally friendly and it is the Christmas Story but all in recycled stuff and all about global warming and Al Gore's like a little elf with a thermometer and it moves.

STU: No, that didn't happen.

GLENN: Oh, yes, it did. No, I got a picture right here. See him with the little pointed ears? That's an actual photo, which is weird. But it is -- yeah. And like the little elf is on a giant mushroom but it's an organic mushroom. But here's -- wait. If you think it's bad...

STU: I do. I do think it's bad.

GLENN: I'm dreaming of a, fill in the blank.

STU: Of white Christmas.

GLENN: What do you think it would be?

STU: Please don't tell me it's a green Christmas.

GLENN: Go ahead and say it. Stu, a fun Christmas?

STU: I'm dreaming of a green Christmas.

GLENN: No, no, no, no. That's what you would think it is.

STU: Right.

GLENN: If you were going to be on the bandwagon of the, you know, hip new movement and, you know, politically correct.

STU: Did they admit what it really is and say it's a red Christmas?

GLENN: Green and red go together; happy holidays.

STU: They do, don't they?

GLENN: Here's the thing, Stu. It's I'm not dreaming of a green Christmas. I'm dreaming of a green holiday.

STU: Oh, no!

GLENN: It couldn't -- 

STU: Shut up!

GLENN: It couldn't make it any worse. I'm dreaming of a green holiday.

STU: That is agonizing.

GLENN: Oh, yeah. Oh, yeah.

STU: We'll do them Monday?

GLENN: Yeah, recycled reindeer with empty soda can antlers, an Army of garden Gnome-like elves, one of them brandishes a Menorah. They celebrate as you walk by the store windows, they celebrate the green days of Christmas with the twelve tons of tofu, eleven solar panels and a Prius in a pear tree (singing). We have to call and complain. Why would you park a car in a tree? Don't you know that damages the environment? Trees are living things. You wouldn't park a Prius in a tree. We should complain. They've made snowflakes out of soda cans. They seem to be drinking a lot of -- they also have metro card carpets and the Santa's -- 

STU: Metro card carpets?

GLENN: Yeah, made out of metro cards.

STU: Subway passes here in New York City? Why would that have anything to do with the environment?

GLENN: Because you're using public transport.

STU: No, seriously what would be -- 

GLENN: Could I just get to the really important part?

STU: Yeah.

GLENN: Okay, while you're dreaming of a green holiday? You don't want to go to Santa's workshop, do you?

STU: I don't think I do.

GLENN: Okay. Why not? Seriously why not?

STU: Oh, my God, don't tell me.

GLENN: No, guess.

STU: If you tell me it's because the North Pole is Melted.

GLENN: Nope, it's not.

STU: That's good.

GLENN: Are you sure it's good? Because I have the answer, okay? You wouldn't want to go to Santa's workshop.

STU: No?

GLENN: No, you wouldn't want to go to Santa's workshop.

STU: Why wouldn't I want to go to Santa's workshop.

GLENN: Who does he employ?

STU: Elves.

GLENN: What does he pay them?

STU: Nothing.

GLENN: So Santa's workshop is not Santa's workshop. Santa's workshop is Santa's fair trade sweatshop.

STU: Shut up! This is a bit.

GLENN: I cannot, I cannot live on this island. It is the island of misfit toys and nobody wants in the box. It is the island of misfit toys. It is the most bizarre freakish collection of what they call people on planet Earth.

STU: Yeah, do you want Charlie in a box, you know, controlling the media? Do you want everyone from -- the island of misfit toys was a cute little thing in the Christmas special.

GLENN: Yeah.

STU: This is people, the rich and the powerful. It's Charlie in the box winning the world.

GLENN: Hang on just a second. Hang on just a second. They've done one other thing just to round it all out. What is the one thing that's missing from this so far? What's the one politically correct thing that's missing?

STU: I don't -- 

GLENN: The only color is green. So they have had the East Harlem school participate and paint paintings but it's a painting -- of course, when you think of Christmas and the holidays, you think of paintings of Mother Earth. That's got to be on videotape. We'll cover all of that on Monday and, of course, we might send Stu in to complain to Barney's about the tree in the Prius or the Prius in the tree. We'll do that on Monday.

END TRANSCRIPT

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

2009

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

2010

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

2011

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

2013

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

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

The firm is often called "BHR" for short.

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

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

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

2014

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

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

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

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

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

2015

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

2017

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

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

2018

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

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

2019

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

"That's absolutely correct," Schweizer confirmed.

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

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

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

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

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

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