Story of Stuff, The Critique Part 4 of 4

GLENN: Do you think Barack Obama got this into your kids' schools? I want you to listen to this. This was sent to a watchdog who doesn't want to be identified. We did some research. 7,000 schools and churches and organizations are now playing this across the country. This was played in a school which we won't reveal yet. Watch tonight. I have my reasons. This was played in a school and we got a watchdog who alerted us to it. Now I'm going to play just the audio, but wait until you see. This is what the New York Times says is far better than Al Gore's movie, far better because it's more accessible. Listen to what they're teaching in this little movie.

VOICE: I spent 10 years traveling the world tracking where our stuff comes from and where it goes. And you know what I found out? That is not the whole story. There is a lot missing from this explanation. For one thing, this system looks like it's fine, no problem. But the truth is it's a system in crisis.

PAT: What's the system we're talking about here, by the way?

GLENN: How our stuff how does our stuff get here.

PAT: Yeah. Mostly the capitalist system.

STU: Yes, the capitalist system.

PAT: It's capitalism. She's not saying that, but that's what she's alluding to.

VOICE: And the reason it's a system in crisis is it's a linear system and we live on a finite planet. And you cannot run a linear system on a finite planet indefinitely. Every step along the way this system is interacting with the real world. In real life it's not happening on a blank white page. It's interacting with societies, cultures, economies, the environment. And all along the way it's bumping up against limits. Limits we don't see here because the diagram is incomplete.

GLENN: This is

VOICE: So let's go back through. Let's fill in some of the blanks and see what's missing.

GLENN: This is in schools.

VOICE: Well, one of the most important things that's missing is people. Yes, people. People live and work all along the system.

GLENN: Oh, no.

VOICE: And some people in this system matter a little more than others.

GLENN: Uh oh.

VOICE: Some have a little more say. Who are they? Well, let's start with the government. Now, my friends tell me I should use a tank to symbolize the government, and that's true in many countries and increasingly in our own. That's

GLENN: Stop. I should use a tank. I should use a tank to demonstrate, illustrate our government. And then it turns into a tank. It is the capital and then it turns into a tank. This happens in a lot of countries, and some say more increasingly in our very own.

STU: I was on the way in today and I got run over by a tank.

GLENN: Did you?

STU: It was

PAT: Were those government tanks?

STU: rolling down the street. They were government tanks.

GLENN: Well, maybe I shouldn't give her such a hard time because I think I agree with her that maybe the tank thing is in our future. I mean, for the love of Pete. Are we not, are we not engaging in anti American, anticapitalism propaganda now in our schools? Go ahead.

VOICE: Now more than 50% of our federal tax money is going to the military.

GLENN: Military.

VOICE: Because I told true to the vision and values the government should be of the people, by the people, for the people.

GLENN: Listen to this.

VOICE: It's the government's job to watch out for us, to take care of us. That's their

GLENN: Stop. It is not the job of the government to watch out for us and to take care of us! It is not the government's job. That kind of government leads to a tank and a man on a lonely bridge standing there with his hand up trying to stop the tank. That's a government that takes care of you, watch out for you. Not the American government. That is never the goal of the American government. It never has been. That has been the goal of every despotic government ever created on Earth.

STU: It's not like this is going to 7,000 schools, though. So don't worry about it.

GLENN: Oh, okay, thank you.

VOICE: Job. Then along came the corporation. Now, the reason the corporation looks bigger than the government is that the corporation is bigger than the government. Of the 100 largest economies on Earth now, 51 are corporations. And as the corporation has grown in size and power, we've seen a little change in the government where they're a little more concerned in making sure everything's working out for those guys than for

GLENN: Stop. I actually agree with this part of it. I have no problem with corporations getting big. I have every problem with corporations joining with governments. The rules apply for the government and the corporations and the people alike. Laws are laws. No special favors. No special breaks. I don't care how big you are.

STU: It's a ridiculous premise, though, to say that everything's getting so much easier for businesses these days. And this is not the way we're going.

GLENN: It is. It is. It is much easier if you are the right corporation.

STU: If you are, maybe for certain ones you can make that argument.

GLENN: Yes, the right corporations.

STU: That's not the argument she is making, though, at all.

GLENN: No, uh uh.

STU: I mean, obviously if you are GE, yes, things got a lot easier for you the last nine months.

GLENN: Oh, no, there's nothing that happened like, you know, Barack Obama opening the gateway right to Russia so he could they could have meetings with Vladimir Putin. That didn't well, that happened, but it didn't wasn't tied.

PAT: Nothing to do

GLENN: It happened on the same day that we gave up the missile shield over in Europe and we sold Poland out.

PAT: Pure coincidence.

GLENN: That's a sheer coincidence.

PAT: Stop with your hate.

GLENN: Yeah, I'm sorry, sorry.

VOICE: Okay. So let's see what else is missing from this picture. We'll start with extraction, which is a fancy word for natural resource exploitation, which is a fancy word for trashing the planet.

PAT: Wow. Talk about propaganda.

STU: This is unbelievable, unbelievable.

PAT: Unbelievable.

GLENN: Wait until you see it tonight. Wait until you see it. It's you know what? Can we include a link, please, in our newsletter? If you have the free e mail newsletter at GlennBeck.com, you will get a copy of this and then you also see it tonight. And there is so much to show you about I'm blowing out that, tonight the hour is on propaganda. Tonight the hour is, I'm tying some things together on the blackboard that we started last night. I'm telling you it is going to come fast and furious. This stuff is going to start coming down and raining down on the program fast and furious. You are going to start tying it together. I think last night was a show that a lot of people had, oh, my gosh, an a ha moment where they looked and went... I get it, I get it, I see where it's all leading. I see how it's all being done. You remember when we met six months ago and we were talking and I said, you don't know what's going on. And I was so frustrated because I didn't know what was going on. I couldn't figure it out. Well, some of us, unlike others in the media, have been up almost 24 hours a day at times trying to figure it out. And I got I'm telling you, I know what's happening. I know how to show it to you. I can't show all of it, but I will tell you this: I said last week off air and I'll say today, I know exactly how to stop it, and it certainly is not through force. It certainly is not through guns. It certainly is not it is with the truth. And I know what the truth is and I know where to snag em. And just, by the way, my brakes work fine and I'm not suicidal.

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:
