GLENN: What is it that we believe in, who are we exactly, and what is our exit strategy? That has to be our mantra. What is our exit strategy and what do we believe in? Representative Grayson now says that Fox and the GOP are enemies of America and freedom. Maxine Waters has an amendment to Consumer Financial Protection Agency legislation that will permit ACORN a role in setting national policy on consumer financial issues. Congressman Nadler has placed a call to ACORN to offer them legal advice. Newt Gingrich is going to run for president in 2012, but he says the guy you should vote for or the woman that you should vote for in New York in that special election we told you last week is the Republican, the one that is running as part of the ‑‑ with an endorsement from the Working Families Party and an endorsement from ACORN that she accepted. And she's not really sure where she stands on the issue of card check for unions. We're at a crossroads. We are at a crossroads, and we have to decide who we are. Here's, I don't know, this idiot that left Fox. What is her name? Do you have any idea, Pat, what this woman's name us?

PAT: You know, I don't think I've even seen her before.

GLENN: I've never seen her before, either, but she was on some other network and she was talking about why she left Fox and here's what she said:

(Audio plays)

GLENN: Well, don't let the door hit you on the ass when you leave. I'm going to miss you, I am, whatever your name is. My language is scary. Since when did language become scary? Boy, I put a lot of that language in books. Maybe we should gather all those books together and burn them as well. Because there is language in there. I wouldn't want to scare anyone. Read our founding fathers. You want scary language? Read the founding fathers. We haven't even gotten the scary language yet. But remember it's me. I'm the dangerous one. You're the dangerous one. For speaking the truth, pointing out facts and asking simple questions, that has to be called out. But the fact that there are communist, Maoists, socialists, Marxist antifree market people in and around the United States government who are redesigning our government isn't a concern to anybody. Really? All I'm asking is for somebody, anybody in the White House, the media to respo nd to the facts, the proof that we've shown you over and over and over again. Tell me, tell me that all the people that we have on tape, on video, audio evidence, tell me that they have changed. Tell me that I have falsified the video tapes, the audiotapes or tell me that it's okay for them to be plotting to take over the free market system, to, if I may quote one of them, take the capitalist market apart brick by brick. For the love of heaven stop telling me how dangerous I am and just respond to the real issue. Do we need to review the evidence again? Let's start at the top. Because I'm willing to do it. Let's stick to the issues. Barack Obama during the campaign, do you remember his words to Joe the plumber?

PRESIDENT OBAMA: It's not that I want to punish your success. I just want to make sure everybody who is behind you, that they have got a chance at success, too. I think when you spread the wealth around, it's good for everybody.

GLENN: Was that confined to that one isolated statement? If so, maybe I could understand the mind‑numbing ignorance of the media. "Oh, gee‑whiz, Glenn, it was just one comment made in the heat of the campaign. Let it go." Okay. But unfortunately it started a long time ago, in his own words and in his own voice.

PRESIDENT OBAMA: I chose my friends carefully. The more politically active black students. The foreign students. The Chicanos. The Marxist professors and structural feminists and punk‑rock performance poets. We smoked cigarettes and wore leather jackets. At night, in the dorms, we discussed neocolonialism, Franz Fanon, Eurocentrism and patriarchy. When we ground out our cigarettes in the hallway carpet or set our stereo soul out and the walls began to shake, we were resisting bourgeois society's stifling constraints.

GLENN: Oh, gosh, Glenn, that was college. Who wasn't a Marxist? I've never been a Marxist. I don't know anybody that's ever been a Marxist. Okay, so he was hanging out with Marxists and structural feminists in college. Who didn't? Again, me. And I don't have any friends that did. But let's fast‑forward to 2001.

PRESIDENT OBAMA: But the Supreme Court never ventured into the issues of redistribution of wealth and sort of more basic issues of political and economic justice in this society. And to that extent as radical as I think people tried to characterize the Warren court, it wasn't that radical. It didn't break free from the essential constraints that were placed by the founding fathers in the Constitution, at least as it's been interpreted, and Warren court interpreted it in the same way that generally the Constitution is a charter of negative liberties, says what the states can't do to you, says what the federal government can't do to you, but it doesn't say what the federal government or the state government must do on your behalf. And that hasn't shifted. And one of the, I think the tragedies of the civil rights movement was because the civil rights movement became so court‑focused, I think that there was a tendency to lose track of the political and community organizing activities on the ground that are able to put together the actual coalitions of power through which you bring about redistributive change. And in some ways we still suffer from that.

GLENN: Just answer that question. Just answer that question, just somebody in the media answer that question. Does the man still believe in that? Does his actions show what he believes in? You couple what you just heard with this.

PRESIDENT OBAMA: We are five days away from fundamentally transforming the United States of America.

GLENN: And you tell me what does the man believe? You know, I have made the case over and over again the strong and unchallenged case. This isn't, this isn't the show that, you know, three years ago we were listening to widely in the middle of America. Now we're listened to. Now the White House is monitoring us. This show is written up in the editorial pages almost every day. I can't even keep up, with the mound of things that are written about this. I can't keep up. With the amount of things that are said about me and this show in Washington, let alone the blogosphere. How is it that the facts remain unchallenged? How many words have been written about me and this show in the last six months and yet the facts that I present are unchallenged? Why is that? I have made an unchallenged case that there were and are communist revolutionaries, socialists, Marxists, people that follow Chairman Mao, people that do not believe in the free market system, people that are radicals that have been appointed by Obama to the executive branch positions in government. I have set up a phone in the Fox s tudio for them to call and correct any falsehood. The phone has never rung. Why? Maybe because the person on the other end of the line who was assigned by Obama and Rahm Emanuel to monitor and smear my program is one of the followers of Mao.

DUNN: But the two people that I turn to most to basically deliver a simple point which is you're going to make choices. You are going to challenge. You are going to say why not. You are going to figure out how to do things that have never been done before. But here's the deal. These are your choices. They are no one else's. In 1947 when Mao Zedong was being challenged within his own party on his plan to basically take China over, Chiang Kai‑shek and the Nationalist Chinese held the cities, they had the army, they had the Air Force, they had everything on their side. And people said how can you win? How can you do this? How can you do this? Against all the odds against you. And Mao Zedong said, you know, you fight your war and I'll fight mine.

GLENN: And he did. And it only cost 70 million lives. But let's teach that to a high school class, shall we, Anita? Even when they got rid of Van Jones from the White House on a holiday weekend in the middle of the night on a Sunday, a man who was an admitted communist and shouted spreading the wealth ideology from the rooftops.

VAN JONES: No more broken treaties. No more broken treaties. Give them the wealth. Give them the wealth. Give them the dignity

GLENN: Give them the wealth. Even then the administration never addressed the real issue. How did an avowed communist, Marxist, Maoist get into this administration? How did that happen? They didn't. They swept him aside in the middle of the night and transferred him over to the Center For American Progress with John Podesta. He still plays a role. They haven't addressed the Anita Dunn issue, apart from her lame excuse that she was joking. No rational human being believes that. Once you've heard the tape, did that sound like a joke to you? The weekend, in fact, the day that one communist left this administration because of this show, they appointed yet another individual. This man is the manufacturing czar. This is the guy designing the comeback of America. His name is Ron Bloom. There has been no response since we aired this tape last week, no response from the White House or anyone in any format trying to tell us and explain his bizarre disavowal of the free market system.

BLOOM: Generally speaking we get the joke. We know that the free market is nonsense. We know that the whole point is to game the system, to beat the market or at least find someone who will pay you a lot of money because they are convinced that there is a free bunch. We know this is largely about power, that it's an adults‑only, no‑limit game. We kind of agree with Mao that political power comes largely from the barrel of a gun.

GLENN: Okay, I don't believe in that. I do believe in the free market system. America, if your question. Answer your question. Right there, just answer that one question. Do you believe in the free market system? Yes or no? Do you believe that power comes from the end of a gun and generally agree with Chairman Mao, yes or no? There's been no response from Washington. Not a single person in Washington. How is it this program can have an influence of 30 million people every month? 1/10th of the U.S. population and we can't get a response. How is it we have no response on Mark Lloyd, the new FCC diversity czar?

In Venezuela they had an incredible revolution with Chavez. Science czar John Holdren talked to the need to redistribute America's wealth.

HOLDREN: I think ultimately the rate of growth of material consumption is going to have to come down and there's going to have to be a degree of redistribution of how much we consume in terms of energy and material resources in order to leave room for people who are poor to become more prosperous.

GLENN: At this point you have to be trying not to pay attention. There is so much antifree market rhetoric from Obama and his top officials, you either have to be living in a cave in Afghanistan with Bin Laden and not even listening to him. You have to be listening to the goats that are around there and not Osama Bin Laden because Osama Bin Laden has got to be talking about this stuff! Or you are so deeply in love with Obama that you cannot detect a single flaw in him, but there are plenty of those, of course.

VOICE: The feeling most people get when they hear Barack Obama's speech, I felt this thrill going up my leg.

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:
