- US Says Seized 'Treasury Bonds' Are Not The Real Thing

GLENN: First I want to give you an update on the treasury bonds seized in Italy. This story really, really bothers me. I have talked to several treasuries and bond experts. All of them will agree something's not right and I don't know what that something is and so I don't want to you know, I don't want to I'm going to give you some options, but I don't know what it is. It's just it just doesn't make sense, and you'll see why here in a second.

Two guys on a train. This happened over a week ago. Two guys on a train. They are in Italy. They are going across the border to Switzerland. They have an attache case, in the briefcase is their false bottom. In the false bottom is $134.5 billion of bonds. So you have some concept of that, that is $134 billion, that is 1% of our GDP, right? 1%. Or is it 10%? It's 1%. 1% of our GDP. 1% of our GDP. That's a huge number. Let me give it to you in another way. Everything that we have in the treasury at the U.K., the United Kingdom, everybody keeps our money as gold, right? We were the gold standard. Our dollar. They don't have necessarily dollar bills laying around. They have our treasury bonds. The United Kingdom, for their gold reserve in U.S. Treasury bonds, they have $156 billion. So this is just under what the United Kingdom has as their source of gold in their own vaults. It would make it the fourth largest sum of treasury bonds. First there's China, then there is Japan, then there's the United Kingdom, then this smuggled attempt and then Russia is $131 billion. It's a lot.

So the police get on the train. They are searching everybody and it's the financial police. We don't know yet if they had a tip off on these guys or what, but they found the bonds. They are two Japanese nationals. We know nothing about these Japanese nationals. They were questioned. There are conflicting reports on whether they were let go and then rearrested. We have no details on them, who they are. We have no names. We got nothing to go on with these Japanese nationals. We believe that they are still in jail. They should still be in jail, seeing that they were either into smuggling somebody's bonds or counterfeiting. If they were real, there is such a stiff penalty on smuggling money over $10,000 that Italy could claim 40% of this money.

Now, there were pictures, but again we don't know, we don't know anything. They were released by the Italian press and then this story just went away. These pictures that were released, people who are experts in bonds told me, and they clarified, Glenn, I can only see what I see in the picture, I can't see all the details, yada, yada, but these are $500 million bonds with the certificates attached, which means the when you buy a bond, you get like a certificate and you tear off the certificate when you sell them and then they verify the certificate and say, okay, they call the treasury: Is this a real bond? It's bond number 11007. "Yes, it is." Great. If you are going to fence bonds, you are going to fence bonds that you think you can get away with it. You know, you are going to fence them and, for instance, North Korea, when they were printing bonds we've caught them before trying to print our treasury bonds. When they printed them, they printed Kennedy bonds, when Kennedy was in office, and they got caught. They were printing I think million dollar bonds. They got caught because on the back they put a picture of the space shuttle and everybody was like, what? There's no space shuttle. I mean, that's how we caught. They were that dumb, okay?

Here's the problem. There have been $500 billion bonds before, but they couldn't be very old I'm sorry, $500 million bonds. They couldn't be very old. They could have been Kennedy bonds, which they appeared to be. They could have been Kennedy bonds, but nobody bought a $500 million bond. Nobody's walking off the street. Those were only government bonds. Some government would have had to buy a $500 million bond. If the certificates were attached I'm a little fuzzy on this one, but it's my understanding that it wouldn't have taken a long time to figure out who the bonds belonged to because there are so few of them, and you can just call up and get the serial number and you'd know exactly who they belong to. It's my understanding, though, with everything attached the way they were that these bonds, there is speculation of several things. First of all, let me tell you what the treasury has said today. The treasury came out today and said these bonds and I want to quote are clearly fakes. Two days ago they wouldn't release any information because they said it was an ongoing investigation. Today when we asked them, they said these are clearly fakes. Well, if they're clearly fakes, why did it take you ten days to discover they were clearly fakes? And why did last week people say that they were so good that it was hard to tell the difference between the two? Now, maybe clearly fakes because they were $500 million. That would make them clearly a fake. Or would it? Here's the conundrum that people that I have talked to that know this world have said. With the understanding that North Korea was so incredibly stupid that when they counterfeited, they didn't put the Apollo on there. They put the space shuttle on there. So maybe they are this stupid. But if you are trying to flood the market with fake U.S. bonds, the idea is you've got to flood the market. You've got to get all of this money out into the system. Who do you fence a $500 million bond to?

Now, let's just say you get, you know, you get a tenth of it. Who's going to spend that much money? Who's going to spend $10 million, $100 million on one bond without checking it, without at least saying what are the serial numbers here?" If you are trying to fence, you are going to do something like a million dollar bond because you could get somebody to roll the dice for 100 grand. But a $500 million bond? And how does that person you are dealing with the underworld. You are going to sell somebody a $500 million bond. You don't think they are going to come after you and kill you? The stakes are just overwhelming. They are just enormous. Now, maybe North Korea is this stupid where they are printing a $500 million bond, but you've got to be one of the dumbest groups of people of all time. Again, the information that we have, and it is very sketchy. They say that these are really well done bonds. The story up until this morning was they were so good that they had to have been done by a government with a government style printer. This is not something that you or I could just put into the Xerox machine. We couldn't just make these bonds. This was a big effort to make these bonds look real. Well, now they are saying that these are clearly fakes, today, the story changes. Who are these people? Who are the two Japanese men? Where did this originate? Show the bonds. Why wouldn't the government come out and show the bonds? Why wouldn't they want to be very, very clear and show everybody, show the world that, A, somebody is printing bonds and they are making them obviously fake, so here's what you look for. If they were good fakes, you might hold back just a bit because, you know, you want to have a good story so you can tell people and you know exactly what it is, or you want to catch the people first. If they're bad fakes, you would show them and say these are out there and these are people trying to do this but this is so clearly a joke, yada, yada, yada, yada. Because this hurts the confidence in the bond market which, again, is the only thing that is our lifeline, gang. Our lifeline. Once, the minute the world starts to liquidate our treasury bonds or the minute that somebody has made our treasury bonds worthless, you know, besides us, the Fed and the treasury, it's over. Game over. The dollar is worthless. So it doesn't make sense that they are playing their cards so close to the vest. It doesn't make sense that we don't know anything. It made a little more sense when they said the investigation is still continuing and we don't want to say anything. When they said that these bonds, they didn't know if they were real or fake and they were being examined. That took them ten days. Now to say they were clearly fake and no more information doesn't make sense to me.

Now here are the options. One, these are fake, and I hope to God they are, but I hope also if they are that there is an announcement very, very soon that we caught the country or the people that have a printing press capable of duplicating our bonds because if these bonds were in million dollar denominations, assuming that everything else that we supposedly know is true, if they were in million dollar denominations, they could have gotten out there and then we're in trouble. Because they were $500 million bonds which did exist, there is also the possibility that we're now being lied to for two reasons. One, there is a country that is trying to liquidate their bonds, but they don't want to they just want to do it quietly and they were going to Switzerland to be able to have some meeting and just, here, let's buy the bonds, let's just do this thing and nobody knows. There's the possibility that that happened. There's also the possibility that bonds have been issued by because this is what the story said, that these bonds had been issued by the Fed, okay? That would be another tip that maybe they are fake. Or that is a tip that the Fed has been issuing remember, we can't open their books and when congress, when the Republicans asked for transparency from the Fed, they wouldn't open their books. They declared bankers privilege. They wanted the privilege they are not opening their books. There's zero transparency. We don't know how much money they have, we don't know anything about the Fed. We do know this, that they have on their books $2 trillion, they have issued $2 trillion of debt and spending on the books that they have told us about, but the transactions for the Fed are $9 trillion. Where's the difference? What happened to the $9 trillion or the $7 trillion? What is that? Where is that coming from? The Fed has never issued treasury bonds. They are not allowed to issue treasury bonds. I hope to God they haven't. I don't think they have. But with a lack of transparency, with a government on both sides of the aisle that have been telling us one thing and doing another, not just through the Obama administration but through the Bush administration as well and then a two things: One, the Fed hires a lobbyist and it's the former lobbyist of Enron. Last week the Fed sent a former Enron lobbyist to Capitol Hill. They are afraid, as I told you last week, they are afraid. They need somebody up on the hill campaigning for them and with Obama coming out yesterday giving extraordinary power to the Fed, extraordinary, the opportunity for the treasury secretary in cahoots with the Fed to close down private business, just close it down, "You're a threat," is too much going on. The brakes what is the bill that is on the Fed now that has Senator DeMint as a sponsor in the Senate has 225 sponsors in the house? For the first time in American history since the Fed came about in 1913, there is a chance that the Fed is stopped dead in its tracks but not if this bill is passed that Obama wants, not if they give the Fed and the treasury more power. There is something going on. I don't know what it is. But we must stand together. Please, America, please use your gut. Use your gut. When in doubt leave it out. I am in doubt in many, many things, many things in Washington I doubt. Leave it out. Stand up and get involved.

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?'"

In a phone call with his constituents, Senator Ben Sasse (R-Neb) unleashed a torrent of criticisms about President Donald Trump, saying he "flirted with white supremacists," "kisses dictators' butts," and "spends like a drunken sailor."

On the radio program Friday, Glenn said he was disappointed in Sen. Sasse for apparently forgetting all of President Trump's accomplishments. Because, in reality, Trump has accomplished a lot more than many presidents before him.

Then, for anyone who may have forgotten President Trump's achievements — or who simply hate the man so much they've ignored them — Glenn listed just some of the many things this president has achieved during his three and a half years in the White House.

Watch the video below to hear Glenn's message for all the Trump-haters who have forgotten Trump's accomplishments, or you can read Glenn's list HERE:
