Say it ain't so, Joe



BECK: Oh, yeah. Putting the radio back into Radio City. From Midtown Manhattan, this is the third most listened to show in all of America. My name is Glenn Beck. I'm glad you're here. Yesterday I told you about GI Joe and how he is no longer answering to the Marines. GI Joe answers to an international force. GI Joe, the real American hero not so much anymore. In fact, GI Joe now has a new meaning: G, Global, I, Integrated, J, Joint, O, Operating, E, Entity. GI Joe now stands for Global Integrated Joint Operating Entity. Our children are having their future stolen from them and we are allowing it to happen. Hasbro should be ashamed of themselves. Hasbro should ?? you know what? In fact, my wife is sitting right by the deal. Honey, are you still listening? Honey, are you there? You've got to turn on your microphone. Would you do me a favor? When we're doing ?? she's on the little web cam thing here that I talk to her during breaks. When we buy Christmas toys this Christmas, let's make sure that nothing from Hasbro is purchased.

TANIA: Okay.

BECK: Can we do that? Is it an American company? Do you know, Dan? It is an American company? Well, I guess ?? we're going to have a hard time. We can't buy anything from China because it's all deadly, and we can't buy anything from Hasbro. Hasbro, you should be ?? you're an American company? You should be ashamed of yourself. Do you even know the history of GI Joe? Of course they do. The history of GI Joe, the real guy? The real guy was in the battle of Guadalcanal. He was in, what was it, Dan, like 90 different troops, 70, 90?

Action Figures of the Future - As so cleverly designed by Glenn on Tuesdays show, here are some designs for what our kids can hope to play with in the future! We have Strawberry Shortskirt, Global Integrated Joe, She-Man and MyLittleCloney. Thanks to Michael for sending this in.

DAN: I think it was 90.

BECK: Ninety different guys and the Japanese are coming on and they are trying to take Guadalcanal and every one of his task force dead. Out of 90 guys, one is alive. And so the Japanese think that there's a bigger force. He goes from machine gun to machine gun, from bunker to bunker and he's dragging the wounded with him. As he's going from bunker to bunker, he sees, you know, some of the 90 laying there, some of them dead but he didn't check. He just drags them back in and he takes the machine gun and he goes from station to station to fool them into thinking that there are more people than just one guy. Well, he held it as Guadalcanal. They are not speaking Japanese, are they? It took years to convince Hasbro that they should make a boy doll. "Oh, no, boys won't play with dolls. It's like Barbies. What guys ?? what boy's going to play with a Barbie?" It's not a Barbie. It's an American soldier. It's an American hero. Boys will play with it.

Do you remember the can you think few grip? Do you remember the super eye that he had? You looked in the back of his head he was an American. He was a Marine. The guy's face that you see in GI Joe, that is the soldier that went from machine gun station to machine gun and the only thing he asked Hasbro: You can do it, you can use my likeness but he must always be a U.S. Marine. That was the deal. Well, how Hasbro has forgotten about that. How this American company has just sold us out. I expect it from the Chinese. How Hasbro has now sold GI Joe to have a movie made about and Hollywood jumps all over it.

First the story came out yesterday ?? or actually it's been out for a while but it really kind of gathered steam yesterday when Drudge put it on the front page. And it was reported that it was going to be Brussels, that GI Joe ?? again let me give it to you. My blood boils. My blood boils when I see it, that the Global Integrated Joint Operating Entity, otherwise known as GI Joe, answers to Brussels. Well, the movie company thought that was ?? you know, they were going to get in a lot of trouble if we answered to the international court system in Brussels. So they brought him back to America in the movie. He now answers to the UN, to the U frickin' N. You know what? You teach your kids that our soldiers answer to the UN. Do you know what will happen by that next generation? We will answer to the UN. We've already taught them that the penguins are saved by the UN in Happy Feet. We've already told them that in Superman it's not truth, justice and the American way. The American way has been erased! In the last Superman movie, it was truth and justice. Well, what the hell happened to the American way?

A culture is being erased. We are being set up by ?? what a surprise ?? global corporations. Hasbro, an American company. Shame on you.

Well, I mean, it is just ?? I mean, it's a changing world. Why don't we just embrace it? I mean, man, that sounds like a great movie. If they make it really life?like, wouldn't it be great to have GI Joe, a global ?? when did the word "Entity" mean anything but evil? Wouldn't it be great if he is a global entity and he has to answer to the UN? Man, what an action movie that would be.

VOICE: Coming soon to theatres everywhere, GI Joe finally hits the big screen. And he's fighting the evil enemy that people today are most scared of: Doublecrossing Scottish arms dealers. Plus this time he's not American. He's international. GI Joe. GI Joe, it's now in its fourth Global Integrated Joint Operating Entity. We'll fight the enemy and a new set of difficult-to-follow international rules of engagement. "Okay, sir, can I shoot now? The guy's trying to stab me with his..." it's GI Joe like you've never seen him before. "Sir, may I please respond? I've taken 40 rounds." "Affirmative, soldier, it is time to respond with extreme prejudice. I want you to put your gun down, call the UN and have them draft a harshly worded letter. We're going to sanction their [ BLEEP ]." It's GI Joe goes international. Absolutely no terrorists were harmed during the filming of this movie.

BECK: I can't, I can't take it. When are we going to wake up? When are we going to finally wake up and say, damn it, this is my country! You're not taking it from me in the cover of darkness.

You know, I feel like that ?? I feel like that veteran that cut that Mexican flag down in, where was it, Nevada? Where he cut that American flag down and he said, I couldn't take it; you've got to fight me for this flag. Well, they know that they can't fight. Go back and read Carroll Quigley, tragedy and hope. A guy that is responsible for Clinton being the Rhodes Scholar, a guy who has been a leader for every President from the Sixties on. He talked about it in his book. He said it's not a conspiracy, this global thing is not a conspiracy. It was, but it's not anymore; I was part of it. This is a guy who was a Harvard professor: "I was part of it, I set it up, I helped do it." He was discredited, of course, in the Sixties but yet somehow or another this guy's powerful enough to meet with Presidents all the way along. He said the truth can come out; this is a good thing because we'll never have war again. We'll just use economics against each other. Well, geez. When I can't stop buying toys from China because China says, oh, you don't like our tainted meat, you don't like our lead poisoned toys? Well, if you boycott us or if you put a tariff against us or you can try to penalize us, we will dump $1.3 trillion in cash. Gang, we're being held hostage. I mean, I hate to go back to, you know, the 5,000 Year Leap, but look what Thomas Jefferson talked about.

If you just read the words of the founding fathers, it is so clear. Once you get into bed, once you have massive debt, you're going to be held hostage every step of the way because other countries will control you because they control your debt. Well, what's happening with China? $1.3 trillion? They have always claimed, no, no, no, we're not holding cash. We'll be buying bread ?? our wallets will be a size of a wheelbarrow. You can't stop China now. They got a gun to our head. They have $1.3 trillion in cash just sitting in a bank.

So how are you going to stop it? How are you going to stop it? You've got two treaties right now. One's in the Supreme Court. The other one's sitting in the Senate. One of them will release illegal aliens because we can't try them without their consulate being involved. So illegal aliens done anything wrong in this country, well, you better release him. Was his consulate called?" Why do you think Mexico has so many consulates? They are being consulates, you know, like McDonald's used to build hamburger joints.

We've got on our border a situation that I don't know honestly how to bring you this story. I've been working on this for a while. I can't get anybody to do it because they are all afraid. And I'm not talking about shadow government kind of crap. I'm talking about go down and just report from the border in Laredo, Texas, just stand in Laredo, Texas and tell me the story every day of what's going on. They won't do it. Why? Because they're being killed. The newspaper was bombed. Any of these reporters are being killed. Police being killed. And not killed in the street in gunfire. I mean executed. 70, 70 Americans have been kidnapped from Laredo, Texas. 70! Where's that story? That story is nowhere. You know why? Because you can't get anybody in Texas to talk about it. You've got the people in Laredo that are afraid for their lives. If you live in Laredo, you've got to get your news out of El Paso. And that's going to go away soon. You can't get a reporter to go on the record because they know they're family or they will be dead. The media also won't cover it because there's not a television station within three hours. So anytime you want to talk to somebody down there via satellite, they've got to drive for three hours.

Last night I did the first interview with the sheriff. This guy has testified in front of congress three times. The last time he testified in front of congress, he says, what am I doing here? You do nothing! I'm asking you for help. I've had 70 citizens taken off the streets and brought over to Mexico and either executed or held for ransom. Tonight, day number two of the story of these two girls that were taken and kidnapped off the streets of America, taken over to Laredo, Texas and presented to a drug lord as a gift. This isn't made?up stuff. This is happening. And nobody's talking about it. Nobody will tell you the truth because they live in fear. Nobody will tell you the truth because most people don't even know what the truth is anymore. How is it we can live in a country where Superman has been erased? Superman is not standing for truth, justice and the American way because that's offensive. We're the last great hope for mankind. We're a country that has screwed an awful lot of things up. You about I sure believe in this country, I believe in this Constitution, I believe in the American people. But the American people are going to be slaves. Slaves if they don't stand up pretty soon, if they done pay attention pretty soon. If they done demand the truth pretty soon. If they don't stop watching Britney Spears and Lindsay Lohan. And you know what? There's a few of us out there, you that listen to talk radio. That's probably an audience of 50 million people, but you are discounted every step of the way. You are made to feel like a freak: Well, you're a talk radio hatemonger.

What was it, what was it, Karl Rove's former advisor told the Texas DOT on how to handle talk radio listeners and talk radio hosts? "Don't get down in the mud because that's who these people are. They're pigs." Talk radio listeners are pigs? We're some of the most well informed, freedom?loving Americans I know. You're discounted. You're discounted because you're invisible. Just Rush Limbaugh's audience is bigger than the "New York Times", USA Today and Newsweek magazine combined, combined. Yet those stories are everywhere. But if Rush Limbaugh says something, it gets no mention. He's invisible. You're invisible. And you're invisible because you don't stand up.

Well, here's something we can all quietly do because that seems to be the way we do it. We can all quietly teach our children the truth. In one generation, guys, it will be gone because your children are being taught lies. Your children are being taught falsehoods about the founding fathers, falsehoods about what this country really stands for, falsehoods on who's right and who's wrong, falsehoods about God, falsehoods about Superman, falsehoods about GI Joe. You watch Happy Feet, you're not offended. You think, oh, well, it's just a cartoon. The penguins are saved by the UN boats in the end. Oh, well, it's no big deal. It's just a kids cartoon. No judge works for the UN. How do you expect your kids to understand the argument that they shouldn't work for the UN, that we shouldn't answer to the UN, that we're not a global community, that all constitutions are not the same? That our country was divinely inspired, protected under divine providence, that we are a unique people, that we are the last great hope of mankind? How do you expect them to understand that if you just (lapse in audio). A global community is the way it works. And they're expecting you to not do anything, to not push back: They saw you do it with Superman. They saw you do it with Happy Man, they saw us do it with GI Joe. Well, somebody's got to draw a line in the sand. Hasbro, you should be ashamed of yourself. Hollywood, I expect it from you. Look at your box office numbers. You go to this movie with Robert Redford, you know somebody that goes to this movie with Robert Redford and they are like, oh, it's just a war movie; it doesn't matter. Shame on them. Shame on you. Shame on you. If that's what you believe about the war, God bless you. You have a right to believe that. If you're just some dope that's going out to the movie and, like, oh, well, it's all just a movie, it doesn't matter, yes, it does. You can only have filth wash over you so long before you become filthy. And especially when it comes to our kids, when they don't know because their feet are in wet cement. They have no foundation yet. It is your responsibility to teach it because somebody else is trying very hard to teach their truths.


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?'"
