Glenn Beck: Rush and Fox News




Rush on the Today Show


- Rush talks with Jamie Gangel, Part One


- Rush talks with Jamie Gangel, Part Two

GLENN: From high above Times Square, this is the third most listened to show in all of America. Hello, you sick twisted freak. My name is Glenn Beck. I am so very glad that you're here today. There's just a few things on my mind that I'd like to share with you. Oh, where to begin, where to begin. Well, first of all, I saw on NBC today the one, the only Mr. Rush Limbaugh and then I heard the comments of those that work at the NBC networks that talked about how Rush Limbaugh, they've never seen anything quite like him, they've he was, I believe they used the words disgusting. They said that he was arrogant, and I want to play a little bit here of Rush Limbaugh, because they pointed this particular point out, and I would like to send a message to Rush Limbaugh on this statement. Go ahead. Listen.

VOICE: Glenn Beck, do you worry about the new guy on the block?

RUSH: No. 1988 I'm the only national conservative voice. Now look at conservative media. Look what I have spawned. Glenn Beck to me is right on, Daddy O. Glenn Beck is a result of my success.

GLENN: Now, NBC Today went on and said the arrogance that he has for saying that I am a result of his success. Well, I have to tell you something. I disagree with Mr. Limbaugh. I believe Mr. Limbaugh has misstated this, and I would like to clarify. I don't believe that he went far enough. I don't believe that Rush Limbaugh, that I just owe my success to Rush Limbaugh. I believe I owe my country to Rush Limbaugh. How's that? I think if it wasn't for Rush Limbaugh back in the Eighties, if somebody wouldn't have taken the bull by the horns and started saying the things that people were thinking but would not say, I don't think we'd have a country left today.

PAT: Yeah. By a it goes without saying that Rush is responsible

GLENN: Then you shouldn't say it.

PAT: Okay.

GLENN: I'm just saying.

STU: Yeah, you could say

GLENN: If it goes without saying, then why say it.

PAT: You are right, no. No.

STU: It's one of those things that you could certainly point you out as an individual person but I mean, there is another guy who pointed out that Rush Limbaugh saved AM radio and it was you. In Time magazine. Didn't you say in Time magazine that

GLENN: Oh, yeah, that he was one of the 100 most influential people?

STU: Right.

GLENN: Time magazine.

PAT: And that's what I was going to say, it goes without saying, and you've already said it. So

GLENN: Well, he said it, but he didn't say that it goes without saying.

PAT: Oh, okay.

GLENN: I mean, if it goes without saying, they don't say it. But he felt it needed to be said.

PAT: So the entire AM band. He also, you know, talk radio, there's no question that he's responsible, he blazed the trail. There's no question.

GLENN: No, no, no, no, no. No. He didn't just blaze the trail.

PAT: No, I know.

GLENN: He blazed the trail for talk radio.

PAT: Yeah.

GLENN: He also blazed the trail for Fox News.

PAT: Yeah.

GLENN: And I believe, I truly believe if we didn't have, with all the things that are going on right now, and you have the White House now targeting this program and Fox News. Let me tell you something. You haven't lived until you find out that there is someone assigned to listen and watch your program to get em. And that person that's assigned is, I don't know where the office is. I think in the basement of the White House. When the White House, the most powerful office in the world, says "Get him," that's pretty intense. That's pretty intense. Imagine if it wasn't for Fox News. Imagine if it wasn't for talk radio today. We wouldn't have lasted this long. I contend and I said this the other day when Barack Obama won the Nobel Peace Prize which, hmmm. When he won the Nobel Peace Prize, the prize should have gone to the 9/12ers and to the tea party people. That's who it should have gone to. Because this, all of the things that they thought they were going to get done this summer and just railroad the American people, it is only because you went to a town hall meeting. It's only because you stood up in the mall. It's only because you stood up to them every step of the way and said, whoa, whoa, whoa, whoa, whoa. Had you not had Fox News telling you the truth, if you had not listened to talk radio telling you the truth and you, not being a zombie or a robot but being a logical individual sensing something in your gut, how would you have begun to connect? If it wasn't for the Internet now, you wouldn't be able to do it. Why do you think this administration wants to shut down Fox News? Why do you think they want to shut down talk radio? And why do you think they're going for this net neutrality bullcrap that is going to shut down the Internet? Why do you think they're going for all of that? Because they know they must silence people. Because if they can keep you apart from people, if they can disenfranchise you to the point to where you're like, "Well, I don't want to stand with those people," why do you think they call us racist? Why do you think they call us hate mongers? Why do you think they call us terrorists?

Oh, by the way. I've got two deep throats now, I have two, one of which I haven't even met, nor will I. I mean, it is really like the parking lot thing to where there's just like drop points. I have another one that just kind of came to the fold here in the last couple of days that is remarkable, that has begun to open he has begun to open up my eyes on exactly why they're doing some of the things that they're doing, exactly why they need to keep you quiet.

You know, when CNN had an interview with Anita Dunn, the White House what is she, the White House

PAT: Communications director.

GLENN: communications director. And she said do you have the audio? And she said this over the weekend.

DUNN: If you were a Fox News viewer in the fall election, what you would have seen would have been that the biggest stories and biggest threats facing America were a guy named Bill Ayers and something called ACORN. I mean, the reality of it is that Fox News often operates almost as either the research arm or the communications arm of the Republican Party. And it's not ideological. I mean, obviously there are many commentators who are conservative, liberal centrist, and everybody understands that. What I think is fair to say about Fox and certainly the way we view it is really that it is more a wing of the Republican Party.

PAT: It's fair to say that? It's fair?

GLENN: That's fair to say that? That's fair?

PAT: Yeah. They don't say anything about MSNBC, which is an absolute arm. It's part of the White House. It's part of this administration.

GLENN: Yeah. You don't say anything about that, but it's fair to say that. When you've got a guy on Fox News who in fact, you've got Napolitano as well, who are libertarians. The guy, one of the main guys on Fox now is now saying over and over again, "Get away from the Republicans." How's that helping the Republicans exactly? I'm not sure. How is that part of their you know what that is? That's the elephant thinking, "If we tell..." it's reverse psychology: "If we tell them don't vote for the Republicans, maybe they will."

STU: Now, see, this is typical Republican comments is you can't even figure out what party you're supposed to tell people to vote for.

GLENN: Yeah.

STU: See, your Republican arm, competency

GLENN: Here's the thing. They say we're the research arm for the well, I guess if your opponents are using actual corruption, if they're using evidence of corruption against you, well, yeah, that would be like Jimmy Carter and saying, "The Washington Post was just in the bag for Jimmy Carter. It's the only reason why they dug up that whole Watergate mess." No, they dug it up because it was corruption. That's why. It was a news story. The biggest news story in the history of our country, because I believe our country is in deep trouble. I believe our Constitution is on the verge of destruction. We are at the threshold of fundamental transformation. We're here. It is the biggest story since possibly the Civil War, and it is probably the biggest story even beyond the Civil War because the Civil War, everybody was in the open on it. Everybody was either pro slavery, antislavery. It was open. This one has been hidden for so long. There are so many people involved in corruption. The corruption and the stealing of our country is so gigantic. Everybody knows it but no one will say it. That when this thing is exposed, it's going to pull everybody down. It is going to pull these news organizations down. These news organizations don't have any idea what they're in bed with right now.

You know, let me speak to the good journalists out there because I believe there are few. Those journalists who are at NBC or ABC or CBS or CNN, I know decent journalists over at CNN. Ask yourself this question: When they're done with Fox and you decide to speak out on something, the old, "First they came for the Jews and I wasn't Jewish." When you have a question and you believe that something should be asked, they're, A, totally fine with you right now. They have no problem with you. When they're done with Fox and talk radio, do you really think they're going to leave you alone if you want to ask a tough question? Do you really think that a man who has never had to stand against tough questions and has as much power as he does, do you really believe, after he takes out the number one news network, do you really think that this man is then not going to turn on you, that you, in your little organization, is going to cause him any hesitation at all not to take you out? If you believe that, you should open up a history book because you've missed the point of many brutal dictators. You missed the point on how they always start. In fact, you don't even have to go to the history book. Just you know what? Go down with Oliver Stone or Sean Penn and go visit Chavez. There are actually people in Venezuela that think that people that remain speaking out against him should be in prison or executed. Oh, but that's a Democratic republic, don't forget. So the great news is I think they are losing so horribly. They are losing so badly. This is a sign of a desperate administration. This has never been done before, never. Never. This is everything the left has always hated about Richard Nixon, and we all know how Richard Nixon ended. Now, this is an enemies list. This is a spoken enemies list. You can say whatever you want about me, that you don't like my opinion, etc., etc., but don't screw with the facts. If you want to go ahead and tell me how Van Jones was not an communist, you go ahead and do that. If you want to tell me and explain how Mark Lloyd doesn't extoll the virtuous of Hugo Chavez and Venezuela, you go ahead and do that. If you want to show me that SEIU is not directly influencing your policy, you go ahead and do that. If you want to tell me that the former, the former founder, the co founder of the Weather Underground, Jeff Jones, is not the head of the Apollo Project here in New York, the Apollo Project that Harry Reid said wrote the stimulus bill, you go ahead and do that. But I haven't had those, I haven't had those answers. I haven't had see, the White House won't ever correct. What they'll say is, well, this is just a smear campaign. I looked it up. Isn't it weird that that's exactly what the Nixon administration said about everybody at the Washington Post: "It's a smear campaign, it's nothing but a smear by association. All they're trying to do is link us with people that are bad people. That's all this is." Really? Is that all this is? Is that all that was? You go ahead and answer those questions and we can talk. It's weird how you'll sit down at the table and you'll talk to Hugo Chavez. You'll even get a book. Mr. President, can we have lunch together? I'll sit across the room and let me just hand you my book. Could I do that? Would you ever allow me to be in a room with you and my book that I could come over and hand your book and you'll hold it up and go, "I'll read anything," would you allow me to do that? I don't think so. You'll sit down with Mahmoud Ahmadinejad but you will not sit down with Chris Wallace? You're saying Chris Wallace is less reasonable than the guy who says the Jews will be run into the sea? I'm sorry. I'm having a hard time getting my arms around that one. They can't answer the questions. They can only smear.

You'll notice that the things that are now being circulated about me are things from my past, they're things that I fully admit to, most of them. I've told you a long time ago I'm a dirt bag I was a dirt bag. I'm a recovering dirt bag. I'm a dirt bag in recovery. I am what you call human, and I try to be better every single day. I don't always succeed. But see, what they're trying to do is destroy the individual. I'm not trying to destroy the individual. I'm just trying to get an answer out of the individual. What is it you believe? Because they hide what they really believe. What they really believe is in Marxism. They do not believe in a Democratic republic like our founders did. They believe in a Democratic republic like Hugo Chavez does. And that's the difference. And if you want to have that argument, if you want to say, "Hey, I believe we should go the Hugo Chavez way, I believe we should nationalize these things, I believe we should have healthcare that is run by the government. Because that's what they believe! Then make the case and join me, as George Washington said, on the battlefield of ideas. But they won't. Why? Because they know you're against it. Not just talk radio listeners, not just Fox which, by the way, I think we're two times the ratings of all of the other networks combined. You don't want to have those people. Those people that watch those shows or listen to these shows, they're crazy. No. No, we're not.

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?'"
