Viva Laredo!

GLENN BECK PROGRAM


BEGIN TRANSCRIPT

GLENN: Stop. Do you hear this? This was a total moment of frustration for me. I'm so tired of being lied to, I'm so tired of not being told the truth, I'm so tired of everybody having a political agenda. Do you know what my political agenda is? America! America! American citizens, safety, security. That's my agenda. That's the American agenda, that from sea to shining sea, if you don't have a political agenda, that's your agenda. Do the right thing for America.

Now, we might disagree on how to get there, but we're being lied to. Natalee Holloway, the media goes down to cover Natalee Holloway, for months! Let me ask you this: If she wasn't a cheerleader and she wasn't blonde, do you think they would be down there? A lot of people would say no. I like to believe that the answer would still be yes. But you know what? The kidnappings on the border make me question because, Stu, out of the 70 people that have gone missing, I think there's 60 now, out of the 60, how many of them are non-Hispanic? Do you know? Did you look? Did you find that website for me? Okay. Look on the website because they have pictures of everybody. I think they're all Hispanic. I don't know for sure. But last I looked at all of the faces, I think they are all Hispanic. The important thing is, is that they are Americans! Not that they're Hispanic, not that they're white. But could I say that the media is being racist because they're not covering these people that are missing? Sure. But I don't think so. I think they are just being political. I think you lose arguments when you cry racism when it's not racist. I think it's the sign of total desperation. And I know that. Let me point out an example. Congressman Cuellar says I'm racist, that this appearance where I was belittling, you just heard the exchange. Who was belittling who? Where I was belittling Laredo and its citizens, I did that because of racist reasons and my racism was very subtle, so unbelievably subtle, congressman, that I didn't even know it was happening, so unbelievably subtle, the things that you said I said, I never said. And you found if it was in a banner? He said that I pointed out or I kept emphasizing --

STU: What's the quote? What does he say actually?

GLENN: Quote, my whole thing is why keep saying Laredo is 90% Hispanic? I never said it.

STU: You didn't say it.

GLENN: Not once.

STU: We found one demographic banner that just says the population and the percentage.

GLENN: Okay. What does it say?

STU: It says -- let me see if I can get the exact verbiage here.

GLENN: While you do that, my whole thing is why you keep saying Laredo is 90% Hispanic. He was wrong. It's actually 95%. But why emphasize? It's Mexican-Americans. At the same time you are attacking Mexico. At the same time you are attacking corruption in Mexico. There were just so many subtle indirect attacks on our border community.

There was no subtle attacks! I'm the guy who asked for troops on the border to protect the people of Laredo, to protect not the Mexican-Americans. The Americans! Stop with the frickin' hyphen, everything else. I'm not a German American. I'm an American.

STU: And if they were Mexican-Americans and you are saying we should protect them, I would think that would mean that you are less racist. I don't even understand that. But first of all --

GLENN: But wait. But wait. If I would say we only protect Americans and not Mexican-Americans, that would be racist. If I would say, let's just protect the Mexican-Americans, that would be racist. I'm saying protect Americans. What does your passport say? What does your birth certificate say? Let's put those people first. Are you a citizen of the United States? I want to put you first. And I would think a congressman would say yes, that's my literal job description, to put citizens and constituents first.

Now, does that mean that I want anybody in America -- or anybody who is Mexican to die? No. If they are trying to kill me, sure. But I'd say that if an American was trying to kill me, too, that happened to be from Norway, a Norwegian American.

Have you noticed, have you noticed how when you lose, it becomes about race. Well, I ain't going to play that game because it ain't about race.

And did the banner say it? What does the banner say?

STU: The banner says Laredo has a population of 170,000, 90% of which is Mexican-American.

GLENN: I don't even know what that banner means. It's a demographic and we do that on everything. I had nothing to do with it. But let's just say that there was some ill intent there. The only ill intent I can make of that is that this is what the banner actually read: Glenn Beck is clearly not racist because he's asking for more protection and more money being asked for by this sheriff who happens to be Hispanic, to protect his citizens which are 90% Hispanic and to find and to talk about the kidnap victims which are, I'm guessing, I don't know, but I'm pretty sure it's damn near, if not 100% Hispanic. The only thing that was racist about this conversation apparently was that I was in it. Because I'm one of the few white guys in it. Everybody I was talking to, everybody I was trying to help, 90% were Hispanic. Me, not caring about someone's race, hadn't noticed, but I see the congressman did.

You know, it's amazing to me, it's really, truly amazing to me that I never once thought that this congressman was a racist for defending Mexico for trying to convince the American people that, okay, what we did with the Zetas, when we trained the Zetas and they went bad and now they are the biggest problem, what we did with Osama Bin Laden where we trained and armed him and then it went bad and he was used against us, what we did with Saddam Hussein where it went bad and we had to take care of it, what we did every step of the way when we get in bed with corrupt people that somehow or another I didn't think that it was racist when he said we should get in bed with the Mexican government and give them $1.4 billion, eavesdropping devices, guns, weapons, training, helicopters. When I have the proof that last time we did it with the Zetas, it really ranked out badly. I didn't think he was being racist for saying that. I just thought he was being, quite frankly, stupid. Don't you learn from history? It's not a Mexican thing. It's a corruption thing. It's not a Hispanic thing. It's a drug money thing. I mean, you know, how many times are you going to learn that lesson? I didn't assume that he was racist because he hated me because I was white and he loved Mexico and wanted to give them the benefit of the doubt because they were Hispanic like him. Never even occurred to me. But what's amazing is a U.S. congressman assumed that of me with not a shred of evidence as I was defending Hispanics who had been kidnapped by drug lords who also happen to be in bed with the Zetas. Weird. Why I would be immediately called a racist when I never had those racist thoughts. But he's not a racist for thinking that I am. Amazing. Shows a level of respect and shows how unbelievably desperate. When you actually start to uncover the truth, how unbelievably desperate they become. They cannot argue with it. They can't argue. They've just got to go to the slurs.

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?'"
