Glenn Beck: Ma'am!! Boxer not offended this time



Glenn Beck's Common Sense


Available in book stores nationwide...

GLENN: So let's go to Pat's audio vault. Pat, what are you bringing to the table with the audio today?

PAT: Barbara Boxer, having a little hearing yesterday.

GLENN: Everybody's favorite.

PAT: Some sort of small business or environmental hearing, who knows. They are having a hearing on something every day. And she was in this environmental hearing with Harry Alford who was the head the CEO at the black Chamber of Commerce. And they had an interesting little exchange that Harry took exception with.

GLENN: Okay. Here it is, Barbara Boxer.

BOXER: Also, if that isn't interesting to you, we'll quote John Grant who is the CEO of 100 Black Men of Atlanta. Quote: Clean energy is the key that will unlock millions of jobs and the NAACP's support is vital to ensuring that those jobs help to rebuild urban areas. So clearly there's a diversity

VOICE: Madam chair, that is condescending to me. I'm the National Black Chamber of Commerce and you are trying to put up some other black group to pit against me.

BOXER: If this gentleman, if this gentleman were here, he would be proud that he was being quoted just as he

VOICE: He should have been invited.

GLENN: Stop, stop, stop, stop. He would have been proud that he was quoted, that a white senator was quoting him in congress. He would have been proud. Oh, my gosh, I think that's condescending.

PAT: It is. It is.

GLENN: Unbelievable.

PAT: That part, that part is. That's the one part that struck me as you know, otherwise this is liberals eating their young.

GLENN: Yeah.

PAT: Just, they are feeding on each other and I love it when that happens.

GLENN: Oh, yeah. It is kind of yummy.

PAT: But that part, where he would be proud, you should be proud. You black guys should be proud that I

GLENN: You cute little black guy.

PAT: You're cute. Look at that. I'm holding this black guy up and saying, "He's smart."

PAT: Yeah. Look.

GLENN: Yeah.

PAT: Unbelievable.

GLENN: That is offensive. There's more.

BOXER: Should be proud

VOICE: It is condescending to me.

PAT: Just so you know, he would be proud that you were here. He's proud, I'm sure.

VOICE: Proud. That's condescending and I don't like it. It's racial. I don't like it.

BOXER: Excuse me, sir.

VOICE: I take offense to it.

BOXER: Okay.

VOICE: As an African American and a veteran of this country, I take offense to that.

BOXER: Offense at the fact that I would quote

VOICE: You are quoting some other black man. Why don't you quote some other Asian or some I mean, you are being racial here.

BOXER: Okay, let me

VOICE: And I think you are getting to a path here that's going to explode.

BOXER: I'm going to respond right now. I'm going to ask everyone to listen to what I said.

GLENN: Okay.

BOXER: First I placed in the record the Pew Charitable Trust study. Very important study our state, our home State of California. Then I wanted to make a point that the fact is there's definitely differing opinions in the black community just as there are in my community.

VOICE: You are speaking on behalf of the black community?

BOXER: No. I am putting in the word a statement by the NAACP.

VOICE: Why?

BOXER: Because I think it is quite relevant. I

VOICE: Then understand the Pew I understand the Pew study but why are you doing the NAA why are you doing the colored people association study with the black Chamber of Commerce?

BOXER: I am trying to show the diversity of support that we have.

VOICE: Diversity?

BOXER: And I will go ahead and give that diversity of support. The oil companies

PAT: Is that great?

GLENN: That's unbelievable.

PAT: It's priceless.

GLENN: Then she goes into the oil companies. What color is oil?

PAT: Black.

GLENN: Yes. I think we all know what you're saying, little miss racist.

STU: That is the treatment that Democrats, people like Barbara Boxer give to anyone on the right when they say anything. She just got it back at herself.

GLENN: And she didn't she doesn't have any idea. She was like, wait, wait, wait, wait, this is friendly; I'm just trying to say... and she really didn't even notice the racism. Where is the diversity of opinion? The black Chamber of Commerce versus the NAACP?

PAT: Both sides of the issue!

GLENN: Both sides of the issue and they are both black. I agree with him, why are you bringing that up? Why are you bringing up the NAACP?

STU: It's just, that's an odd do we know what his actual opinion was on this?

GLENN: Does it matter? It's Friday. We're enjoying cake here for a second.

STU: That's a good point. Just enjoy Barbara Boxer getting yelled at.

GLENN: Yeah. Oh, by the way, speaking of that, did you notice how many times he said "Ma'am"?

STU: I did not. Did he say ma'am?

GLENN: Did you notice that?

PAT: Several times.

GLENN: Do you happen to have those?

GLENN: Okay, hang on. Here we go.

PAT: Here's some of the ma'ams.

VOICE: That's correct, ma'am, it's all in the manual. Yes, ma'am.

GLENN: Four ma'ams. Do you happen to have the audio of last time somebody said ma'am?

VOICE: Well, why has it been delayed?

VOICE: Ma'am, at the LACPR is

BOXER: You know, do a favor. Could you say senator instead of ma'am? I worked so hard to get that title. So I appreciate it, thank you.

PAT: It's just a thing. She worked so hard to get that title. About you when Harry Alford yesterday called her ma'am four times within about 30 seconds, she didn't stop him.

GLENN: She didn't have a problem with that because she doesn't have a problem with being called ma'am. She has a problem being called ma'am by somebody in a military uniform.

PAT: By a general.

GLENN: Yeah. She has a problem. It wasn't about that to me just shows her contempt for the military.

STU: Well, are you sure that she just wasn't distracted by being called a racist as well or by being called condescending or whatever that exchange was about?

GLENN: I don't know what it was. Let's listen to it again.

STU: Yeah, one more time, one more time. Playing the hitch here. It is that good, it is that good.

BOXER: Also, if that isn't interesting to you, we'll quote John Grant, who is the CEO of 100 Black Men of Atlanta. Quote: Clean energy is the key that will unlock millions of jobs and the NAACP support is vital to ensuring that those jobs help to rebuild urban areas. So clearly there's a diversity

VOICE: Madam chair, that is condescending to me.

BOXER: Well

VOICE: I'm the National Black Chamber of Commerce and you are trying to put up some other black group to pit against me.

BOXER: If this gentleman, if this gentleman were here, he would be proud that he was being quoted just as he

VOICE: He should have been invited.

BOXER: Just as he would be proud.

VOICE: It is condescending to me.

BOXER: Just so you know, he would be proud that you were here. He's proud

GLENN: Stop, stop, stop, stop. What's this guy's name?

PAT: Harry Alford.

GLENN: Let's call no, the other guy who's supposed to be proud if he were here.

PAT: Oh, the guy?

STU: John Grant or something?

GLENN: John Grant, can we get a hold of John Grant? Let's find out if he was proud.

STU: That he was quoted?

GLENN: That he was proud of Barbara Boxer. Does it make him proud? Was he from the NAACP?

PAT: Yeah.

STU: I thought that was the 100 Black Men.

GLENN: I think we should listen to it again.

STU: You are right.

GLENN: Let's just listen to it again. Start from the beginning.

BOXER: Also if that isn't interesting to you, we'll quote John Grant who is the CEO of 100 Black Men of Atlanta. Quote: Clean energy is the key that will unlock millions of jobs and the NAACP's support is vital to ensuring that those jobs help to rebuild urban areas. So clearly there's a diversity

VOICE: Madam chair, that is condescending to me.

BOXER: Well

VOICE: I'm the National Black Chamber of Commerce and you are trying to put up some other black group to pit against me.

BOXER: If this gentleman, if this gentleman were here, he would be proud that he was being quoted just as he

VOICE: He should have been invited.

BOXER: Just as he would be proud

VOICE: It is condescending to me.

BOXER: Just so you know, he would be proud that you were here. He's proud, I'm sure.

PAT: I'm also glad that she can speak for him.

GLENN: I am, too.

PAT: That is great because she knows.

GLENN: Well, sometimes blacks can't speak for themselves.

STU: If they are not invited, they can't.

PAT: But when they do, they are very proud.

GLENN: Is this the name of a company?

PAT: 100 Black Men.

STU: 100 Black Men of Atlanta.

GLENN: Is that the name of the company or like, I didn't even take time to look up the name, there's 100 Black Men that work together and he is the CEO of them?

STU: That's possible but they would be proud.

GLENN: They would be proud. Is that the name of your company? No, it's I do have 100 Black Men working with me.

PAT: I hope that's true. I hope that's what it is.

STU: It does appear to be 100 Black Men of Atlanta, Inc.

GLENN: What is it?

STU: Let's see if I can

GLENN: What do they do?

STU: I don't know.

GLENN: I mean, that's not like okay, for instance, Jiffy Lube, what does it do?

STU: It lubes cars.

GLENN: Lubes cars.

STU: In a jiffy.

GLENN: In a Jiffy Lube, you get it. So if you are going in and you think I need to get my car lubed, you know where you are going in the Yellow Pages. I don't know what 100 Black Men is. It's not something that you normally say, gee, if I only had 100 Black Men.

STU: I have their mission statement here.

GLENN: What is their mission statement here?

STU: The mission of the 100 Black Men of Atlanta, incorporated is provide support and improve the quality of African Americans and youth in particular in the Atlanta community. In this statement we affirm that we will serve as role models of our youth that's number one. Number two, we will become that will assist charitable and other worthwhile community causes

GLENN: I like these guys.

STU: Number three, we will give our time, talent and resources back to the Atlanta community. Number four, we will provide the leadership to support issues and causes that promote positive change, change in our community. And number five, we will demand and demonstrate excellence in all of our endeavors.

GLENN: They sound proud.

STU: They do sound like they would be proud.

GLENN: Because if they lived by all of those things, they would have reason to be proud.

STU: Yeah, absolutely.

GLENN: So are there more than 100?

STU: I can

GLENN: Is that just the name?

STU: I can get a history on that. There is a history button.

GLENN: Okay, go ahead. Hit the history because I'd like to know if there are more. I'm hoping that there are more than 100.

STU: Okay.

GLENN: Unless they are not living by those standards.

STU: Well, no, there seems to be okay. Here we go. There seems to be about 100 chapters of 100 Black Men.

GLENN: So that's 1,000 black men.

STU: No, it's 10,000 black men.

GLENN: Oh, yeah, 10,000, wow.

STU: In 1986, 18 of his friends and associates so at one point it was 19 black men of Atlanta.

GLENN: And that was 1886?

STU: 1986. They wanted to share the vision of a community empowerment organization that would focus on Atlanta's underprivileged youth. Goldstein who is the guy who started it had been exposed to a similar concept during a business meeting in New York called 100 Black Men of New York, aptly titled the new name, 100 Black Men of Atlanta. So he just

GLENN: That's good.

STU: That's pretty good. Think about it.

GLENN: It works. You wouldn't want 100 Black Men of New York in Atlanta.

STU: That wouldn't make any sense at all.

GLENN: Or 100 Black Men of Atlanta in New York.

STU: Right. Those wouldn't make those would be completely ridiculous.

PAT: You could go with the 100 Black Men of New York, the Atlanta chapter, though.

STU: Right, about you that was really

GLENN: But it would be confusing. Now think you are in the Yellow Pages and you are like, if I just had 100 Black Men.

PAT: Right.

GLENN: And then you are like, well, I don't know if I need them to be New Yorkers, you know.

STU: It's kind of like the Los Angeles angels of Anaheim. It's too long.

GLENN: It is, it is.

STU: Let's see. 100 Black Men of Atlanta is now one of 8

GLENN: I really don't care. Can we call what's his name?

STU: But I was going to tell you, 100 Black Men of Atlanta is one of eight 100 Black Men in cities around the nation. So now we're up to 10,000 men.

GLENN: That's great. I don't know what they do. It was things that sounds good on the surface. Do you have to be black to be in the 100 Black Men? Could you be white? Because I think if you had an organization called 100 White Men

PAT: And you did not allow blacks...

GLENN: Of Atlanta, it might be easier just to look it up in the yellow pages under Klans.

STU: Yeah, 100 white, that would not be good. And it would be odd to have

GLENN: 100 Black Men

STU: It seems like it would be

GLENN: 2 1/2 men or 2 1/2 kids or whatever it is.

STU: That is the name of a show, yes, thank you.

GLENN: Why not, 100 Black Men and a white guy. But that does sound more like a stage show. That's kind of like a show of some sort.

STU: You know

GLENN: You know, a comedy troup: Hey, I was just out this weekend. I saw, have you seen 100 Black Men and a White Guy?

STU: Does sound like a Broadway sort of scenario.

GLENN: It does, it does. So could we call the CEO?

STU: John Grant, CEO.

GLENN: I'll do a commercial and you call him real quick.

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?'"
