Glenn Beck: Billy Mays more credible than Congress


'Infomercial King' Billy Mays dead

GLENN: I don't need all of them. Just give me one.

STU: I think his most important ad ‑‑ I'm not going to attempt to play it here. God only knows if any of this stuff's going to work. But his most important ad I believe was, of course, his attempt to do what Barack Obama's doing and solve our health insurance problem.

GLENN: Go ahead. It's not working.


MAYS: Hi, Billy Mays here to share with you the most important product I have ever endured, access to affordable health insurance for everyone. If you are one of the 47 million uninsured, call now. We can help. And if you are one of the millions dissatisfied with the current health insurance ‑‑

GLENN: Stop just a second.


GLENN: I think this guy ‑‑ turn that off, Stu. I think this guy is, he's absolutely more credible or was more credible than any member of congress, I really do. I get my healthcare ‑‑ that's what they should have done: Hi, Billy Mays for cap and trade. I think they should have gone down the cap and trade road. I think he should have been the pitchman for congress. Their approval ratings probably would have gone up. And you could have everybody watching TV in the middle of the night and they're like, I don't know, that cap and trade thing, I think we should try it; I saw a 30 minute commercial just last night. It was great, I couldn't sleep and I think cap and trade, I think I have to have it. And he's, already he's cut from the same cloth as Barack Obama: And if you act now, I'll also...

STU: But you must act now.

GLENN: But you must act now.

STU: Don't worry about the consequences.

GLENN: Yeah.

STU: Act now.

GLENN: Six payments, eight payments, whatever it is. But act now. I think ‑‑

STU: I think this is a good analogy.

GLENN: I'm just saying.

Glenn Beck's Common Sense

Now available in book stores nationwide...

STU: If you remember Al Gore spent, what, hundreds of millions of dollars on the widest, what was it, mass ‑‑ what was the wording, Glenn, of this? Mass ‑‑

GLENN: Campaign?

STU: Sort of mass ‑‑

GLENN: Indoctrination?

STU: Sure. And whenever he was doing that and he spent hundreds of millions of dollars and the polls actually went down after he did it. If Billy Mays were pitching it, not only would the approval ratings go up but they would sell a ton of Oxiclean. At the same time.

GLENN: I'm just ‑‑ hi, Billy Mays for the environment. Environment dirty? Air not clean? Use Oxiclean. I think we could do it. It would make as much sense as the cap and trade.

By the way, we have the numbers and the names of the people that voted for cap and trade. Let me just start with the eight GOPers that went ahead and said yes to cap and trade. Here are the people that you need to campaign against. Who would have thought Sonny Bono's wife would have gone bad, huh? Mary Bono Mack from California, she's done. Mike Castle, Delaware ‑‑ see if you notice a trend here. Mary Bono Mack voted yes for cap and trade as a Republican. She's from California. Mike Castle voted yes. He's a Republican from Delaware. Mark Kirk from Illinois, he's a Republican. Leonard Lance, he's a Republican from New Jersey. Frank LoBiondo, he's from New Jersey. He's a Republican. John McHugh from New York. Dave Reichert from Washington State and Chris Smith from New Jersey. Look at that.

STU: Yeah.

GLENN: Washington State, California, New Jersey, New York, Illinois. That's where all the GOP support came from.

STU: And remember with these eight people who voted for this ‑‑

GLENN: They only needed one, right?

STU: Well, I mean, what was it, 219‑212? They needed more than one, right? The rumor is, of course, if they didn't have some of these Republicans voting for them, the Democrats would have switched which just shows you what a bunch of dirtbags all these people are.

GLENN: They said they made deals with Nancy Pelosi that said if you need the vote, I'll vote for it but if not, I'm going to vote against it which means to me throw them all out. Throw every single one of them out. But if you've been reading Common Sense, you know how difficult that is now. You know how almost impossible, because of the way both Republicans and Democrats have structured the system. They have played games. It's ‑‑ you know, we've talked about gerrymandering before and it's almost like this, "Yeah, the gerrymandering," and nobody really understands what it is. We lay it all out in Common Sense, and it is the reason why we have ‑‑ have you ever noticed it's like Bible‑thumping preachers with guns, you know, on both hips or it's on fire ‑‑ it's liberals that make ‑‑ that embarrass Jane Fonda they are so far left. How does that happen? I don't know those people. Do you? It's because of gerrymandering. Literally there are places in our country where you can ‑‑ there's a street, and half of the street is for the ‑‑ is for one congressional district and the other half is for another congressional district. Our founding fathers did not do it that way. They built the system so people would have to have a mix of people in there, it would become ‑‑ everybody would be more moderate but instead we have these sharp left and right because they've gerrymandered their district. It's almost impossible to get these guys out. And we've got to get them out. And if you look at the analysis of who voted for it, for cap and trade, it wasn't ‑‑ I mean, we have all of the names. You want to know what you need to do? You need to campaign against these people. You need to make sure that these people send a message to their colleagues in the Senate, "Don't vote for cap and trade." Now's the time to do it. Because they voted and they think you're going to forget. "Make sure they understand you're blanketing with flyers. I want you to know this is what your congressman just did." This is so critical because ‑‑ we'll get into it later ‑‑ not because of the insanity that is in this bill but the fact that it was all special interest and, more importantly, it is the structure. We've got to stop paying attention to these bills the way we've been doing it. We need to look at the structure. The power is being grabbed left and right. The system is being overwhelmed. They are not 1300 pages for no reason. They are 1300 pages with an additional 300 pages because they are burying things. What is it that they are burying? They are burying structure changes. They are taking our republic and they are changing the structure of it. They are adding new departments and new overseers, people that answer to the president, people that don't answer to congress, people that don't have to be confirmed anymore. That's what's happening. It's not just about cap and trade. Again, this is an illusion. This guy is, Barack Obama ‑‑ you know, I had somebody tell me this. I had somebody tell me this and I don't know if I've said this on the air and I don't know if I've credited him. So I better not because I don't remember how it was said to me if not at this point. But somebody who you would respect said to me, "We are looking at a president that is the closest to Thomas Jefferson we've ever had." And I said, wow, that's a slam on Thomas Jefferson. And he said, no, he understands architecture. He knows what he's doing. This guy is very, very smart. And I agree with him.

Now, I don't know if he's the architect of this, but somebody is an architect of ‑‑ this is not happenstance. There are massive changes coming our way, and people don't really understand it yet. But massive changes have happened already.

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?'"
