VOICE: And now it's time for... Ask Glenn Anything.

GLENN: Yes, that's right, ask Glenn anything. Our number is 888 727 BECK, 888 727 BECK. Let's go to Paul in Charleston. Hello, Paul, welcome to the Glenn Beck program.

CALLER: Hi, Glenn. Hey, first off you are a great man, and I love you to death and I'm with you all the way. I think you are doing a heck of a job.

GLENN: I feel a "But" coming.

CALLER: Glenn, you there?

GLENN: Yes, I am.

CALLER: Okay, okay. I'm also an environmentalist, okay? And I want to explain something that, what you're missing when, where these environmentalists, why they are freaking out. I want to use the analogy of a cat. Anybody that knows anything about cats, you have ever seen one infested with fleas. When that last flea hits that cat, it drops the cat down. It's done. You've got to rush it to the emergency room and the vet. Whoever's gone through this, you know, understands what I'm talking about, especially with a flea infested cat.

GLENN: Yeah.

CALLER: Here's the

GLENN: Hang on just a second, Paul. I'd just like to point out I hate cats and I don't know what you're talking about because I've never had a cat. I don't trust people with cats. But I am getting a second dog tomorrow.

CALLER: Okay. Well, I mean, I kind of think you're joking because I don't think you would use the word "Hate" to anybody. But what

GLENN: No, cats I hate.

CALLER: I love everything, Glenn. I love everything.

GLENN: I don't.

CALLER: Everything that God created, everything that God created I love.

GLENN: I don't.

CALLER: I love everything.

GLENN: Right.

CALLER: What happens with the environment? When that last flea even attacks that dog or that cat, okay.

GLENN: Do you love fleas? Seriously, God created fleas. Do you love fleas?

CALLER: Glenn, I love everything.

GLENN: You love everything, okay.

CALLER: I love everything that God created.

GLENN: May I just say then you would not then put a flea collar on your cat?

CALLER: Glenn, there's differences you are not letting me finish. You are

GLENN: No, I'm just trying to understand. If you love everything like cats, but I put a cat collar around my dog.

CALLER: Everything that God created is God's creation, you know?

GLENN: So you just, you then but evidently like Jesus would do, pick the fleas off your cat and release them back into the wild.

CALLER: Well, I haven't been able to do that when I comb them out but sometimes the fleas get the better half and I got to depend on the medical world.

GLENN: Do you try to resuscitate them? I'm just trying to understand. I'm just trying to understand where the line is with you.

CALLER: Because you haven't let me finish my point of the call.

GLENN: All right. I'll try. I'll try.

CALLER: I could, I'm not afraid to resuscitate my cat. I'll do it. That's how much I love cats.

GLENN: No, not your cat. Your fleas.

CALLER: Oh, the fleas? You know what, they are hard to drown. I mean, they're tough.

GLENN: You wouldn't drown something, though, that you love?

CALLER: Well, if it's

GLENN: Do you hold the little flea head in a bucket of water? Is that what you're trying to tell me, that you comb them out of your cat and then hold their heads underwater and try to drown your

CALLER: I can't believe how much you are interrupting me. All right.

GLENN: I'm sorry, go ahead. Go ahead, caller, you are on. Go ahead.

CALLER: All right, all right. Oh, I love you, buddy, I love you.

GLENN: No, go ahead. I love you, too. I love you are one of God's creatures and I love

CALLER: You are great. You should have seen me the other night here. Okay, the last flea that bites that cat puts that cat down. It's down.

GLENN: Okay.

CALLER: Now, where is the environmental freak?

GLENN: But that's okay with you because that's God's way of the fleas taking over?

CALLER: Everything

GLENN: If that's the way God wants it?

CALLER: Everything lives off of everything. We all have to survive.

GLENN: Right.

CALLER: And even the minuscule spree and the minor bacterial growth around the air.

GLENN: So what you are saying is we're all parasitic in nature.

CALLER: I'm not going to use the word parasite, but we do live in a world that survives off of each other's things. Like the trees survive off of our oxygen, our CO2.

GLENN: Right. Our CO our what? What do the trees survive on?

CALLER: Okay, I heard you talk. I heard you talk about

GLENN: All right, I'm sorry. I was about to trap you, go ahead.

CALLER: Oh, no. Hey, I'm armed and ready.

GLENN: Okay, go ahead.

CALLER: Okay. When that last flea bites that cat

GLENN: Oh, good God, you are still on the cat.

CALLER: I know. Here's the problem. When the last tree is cut down on the planet, when does it affect, when does it become beyond return?

GLENN: I don't know because we're not down to the last tree. In fact, there are more trees on the planet than there were 100 years ago.

CALLER: I would refer you to a, I believe it's a 1967 geothermal shot of space of the united of the world and look at the amount of lights that have come into play. Now, with lights come

GLENN: Lights. Okay, hang on just a second. Lights, all right, we're talking about lights because I will give you, there are more lights on Earth I thought we were talking about trees or fleas. I'm not really sure. But I will give you that there are more lights on Earth than there were in 1967.

CALLER: When that last tree is cut down, when does it

GLENN: Okay, you call me back when the last tree... (laughing)... is about to be cut down.

CALLER: Billions of trees left. But when that one within that one billionth, when it starts taking environmental change, people that environmental excuse me, environmentalists I tell people I'm very familiar with the readings of biblical and prophecies and scriptures like that.

GLENN: Yeah.

CALLER: See, as an environmentalist I tell people, you know, I'm very familiar with the readings of biblical and prophecies and spirituals like that.

GLENN: Yeah.

CALLER: I tell people, I said, you don't have to worry about God destroying the earth, sir.

GLENN: Don't have to what?

CALLER: You don't have to worry about god destroying this Earth right now because nature's going to beat him to it if man keeps doing what he's doing because

GLENN: Right.

CALLER: We don't think like the Egyptians did where their water was pure and clean and, you know, the amount of pollutants that are going in our water and poisoning our children

GLENN: Weren't they hold on just a second. Would you agree with me that the Hindus are very spiritually aware of I mean, they don't eat cattle and anything else, right?

CALLER: The Hindus are what?

GLENN: The Hindus are very spiritually aware, in a way they are very spiritual in nature, et cetera, et cetera?

CALLER: I have not studied the Hindu culture.

GLENN: Okay. Well, you know, they are very spiritual in nature and, you know, they won't eat cattle and, you know, they believe in the circle of life, et cetera, et cetera and they also crap in the river like the Egyptians used to. So I beg to differ with you that the that maybe the rivers weren't as pure as you seem to recall them being in Egypt. They were bathing in them.

CALLER: Our food and prescription drug intake in this America is poisoning our children. And it's

GLENN: Our prescription drug intake? Is this about are we going back to the fleas?

CALLER: Well, you do use I do use a prescription drug, half the amount recommended by the vet and three times a year. People kill I mean, drugs are out there to overkill and overuse.

GLENN: Okay. So what you are recommending, doctor, is that everyone takes half of the prescription drug medicine that the doctor prescribes?

CALLER: I'll tell you what, I'm also, I'm a very healthy person.

GLENN: Yes.

CALLER: I'm self employed. I have a small business. I do not

GLENN: Do you take prescription drugs?

CALLER: I do not own health insurance out of my own choice because I eat very healthily. I stay away from you know, look at that video

GLENN: Let's say this. Let's paint a scenario here. You are having a tofu sandwich made with entirely organic materials and you are on hang on. And you are on your bike because you are a very healthy person, as you are eating your tofu and alfalfa sprout sandwich, all organic. You are wearing hemp biking shorts and you have no health insurance because you are a very healthy man. And I'll give that to you. I don't know you, but I'm just going to let's just go with this scenario. How is that tofu sandwich going to help you with no health insurance as you are hit by a truck?

CALLER: Okay. We're talking about an accident versus somebody's versus

GLENN: Right. But you have no health insurance because you are a very healthy person, until you are hit by the cattle truck on its way to the butcher shop for McDonald's.

CALLER: Well, I hope and pray that that guy that's driving that truck gots an insurance policy that will cover my medical payments.

GLENN: All right. So we've got hope, and change. And I think we're there. Paul, thank you very much. I appreciate your phone call.

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?'"
