Glenn Beck: We're Raising a Generation of Would-be Killers




Watch Glenn Beck weekdays at 5p & 2a ET on Fox News Channel

There's a new CNN poll that shows a clear generational split in who supports Obama's health care plan. As the age goes up, support goes down. Our youth seem to be all for Obama's "free" health care.

Dude, like how could you be against free health care, man? And free meh-de… medi-chlorian… meh... .you know, free pot?

Gee, I don't know, maybe the provision in the bill that incentivizes hospitals not to keep treating the sickest among us — who typically are seniors. Yeah, why would old people be against that?

What the youngsters don't seem to get is government health care isn't exactly "free." It's actually back up over $1 trillion again. They think it's just magical Obama cash, like these Obama supporters who were looking for "free" stimulus money in Detroit:

UNIDENTIFIED HOST: Will you know today how much money you are getting?

UNIDENTIFIED WOMAN: No I won't, but I'm waiting for a phone call.

UNIDENTIFIED HOST: Where's the money coming from?

UNIDENTIFIED WOMAN: I believe it's coming from the city of Detroit or the state.

UNIDENTIFIED HOST: Where did they get it from?

UNIDENTIFIED WOMAN: Some funds that was given by Obama.

UNIDENTIFIED HOST: And where did Obama get the funds?

UNIDENTIFIED WOMAN: Obama might of got the funds from, umm... I have no idea to tell you the truth. He's the president.

(END AUDIO CLIP)

(BEGIN AUDIO CLIP)

UNIDENTIFIED HOST: Why are you here?

UNIDENTIFIED WOMAN: To get some money.

UNIDENTIFIED HOST: What kind of money?

UNIDENTIFIED WOMAN: Obama money.

UNIDENTIFIED HOST: Where's it coming from?

UNIDENTIFIED WOMAN: Obama.

UNIDENTIFIED HOST: And where did Obama get it?

UNIDENTIFIED WOMAN: I don't know, his stash? I don't know. I don't know where he got it from but he's giving it to us to help us to help us. We love him. That's why we voted for him. Obama! Obama!

(END AUDIO CLIP)

Hmm, the trail seems to go cold after Obama. Maybe it was another case of Jack and his magic beans? Oh, who cares? It's free! And besides, we must act now:

(BEGIN VIDEO CLIPS)

PRESIDENT BARACK OBAMA: If we do not act, 14,000 Americans will continue to lose their health insurance every single day. These are the consequences of inaction.

OBAMA: Pass health insurance reform now. This year.

(END VIDEO CLIPS)

Now is definitely not the time. This isn't "the moment" that needs seizing. America can't afford a Yugo, let alone a Cadillac or 20 million Cadillacs.

Democrats will argue this bill — even at $1 trillion — won't add to the deficit. You know what is 100 percent guaranteed not to add to the deficit? Doing nothing. Please Washington, do nothing!

Oh, Glenn! Doing something is better than doing nothing!

No, it's not. How will you pay for this? Will someone please explain how this is good for America? What's the exit strategy here? They certainly don't have one in Massachusetts, where they did try "something" and in just three short years Romney-care is failing so miserably they are already rationing services because of budget shortfalls.

But you probably haven't heard about that failure in the media. Why is that? Are they are embarrassed and hiding the fact they called it a "grand experiment" and "trailblazing" when it launched? Maybe. Or, could it be they don't view it as a failure at all and it's achieving exactly what they'd hoped.

Do you remember Rep. Alan Grayson?

(BEGIN VIDEO CLIP)

REP. ALAN GRAYSON, D-FLA.: The Republican health care plan is this: Die quickly. That's right, the Republicans want you to die quickly if you get sick.

(END VIDEO CLIP)

Is that dangerous or is that the truth? Well according to Robert Reich, if a politician would actually tell the truth, they would say this:

(BEGIN AUDIO CLIP)

ROBERT REICH, OBAMA ADVISER: We are going to have to, if you are very old, we're not going to give you all that technology and all those drugs for the last couple of years of your life to keep you, maybe, going for another couple of months. It's too expensive. So, we're going to let you die.

(APPLAUSE)

(END AUDIO CLIP)

No, that would be crazy. Just like Sarah Palin and her death panels. What a fear monger! That could never happen in America.

Uh-huh. Did you notice the audience actually clapped after the "let them die" comment? What kind of person would clap for that? Well, he was speaking to college students. College students, who apparently think like this one does, who wrote into Time magazine after I was on the cover and said this:

"I had to wait through eight years of an administration that brought this country to the brink. Frankowski should sit down quietly while the rest of us get to the task of cleaning up Bush's mess. Besides, this health-care debate isn't about those over 30; it's about the millions of uninsured, recently graduated young people saddled with loans we can't imagine paying off, who are sick and tired of living in an abyss created by our elders' stupidity. Obama would be smart to focus on college towns. Step aside, grandma. We want health care and we want it now."

That letter to the editor should chill you to the bone.

I've said this before — and I know I'll get heat for this — but I'm convinced we are raising a generation of would-be killers: the "me generation."

A generation that only cares about "me-me-me." A generation that never made anything on merit. A generation that doesn't understand what it means "to earn" something, because they've been handed everything.

A generation that was brought up by parents who wouldn't spank them because it was too barbaric and were graded in purple pen because red is too frightening.

A generation who got trophies no matter what place they finished. A generation too busy trying to get noticed on YouTube or Facebook or Twitter to accomplish anything of real lasting value.

We never expected it of them. We promised them a land of sunshine rainbows and lollipops. So it should come as no surprise that the "me generation" enters the workforce demanding high salaries, corner offices and promotions in the first few months — all while wanting to dress down and work less than 40 hours a week.

They feel entitled and are more concerned about "what's in it for me?" than anything else. Because that's what we taught them. Especially not what stupid grandma thinks about health care.

Radicals will seize this opportunity. They always go for the young crowd and the blame the problems of the world on "those old people" who aren't as smart as you are.

Here's what Al Gore likes to say to middle to high school students, when he doesn't know someone is rolling tape:

(BEGIN AUDIO CLIP)

FORMER VICE PRESIDENT AL GORE: There are some things about our world that you know, that older people don't know.

(END AUDIO CLIP)

Like what?

Our schools encourage kids to take the Pill without parental consent and not to worry if you do get pregnant, because Planned Parenthood will help you not get punished with a baby:

(BEGIN VIDEO CLIP)

THEN-PRESIDENTIAL CANDIDATE OBAMA: I've got two daughters: 9 years old and 6 years old. I am going to teach them first of all about values and morals. But, if they make a mistake, I don't want them punished with a baby.

(END VIDEO CLIP)

Punished with a baby.

A warning, America: Don't you see because we have tried to make life easier for our kids, we have bought into the lie that there is a free lunch; that you can have it all; that there is no right and wrong. We have destroyed ourselves and we are about to destroy our kids' future by teaching them that losers get a trophy just like winners do. We have taught them that no matter if you win or lose or if you play the game, all outcomes are equal.

It's a lie, but mark my words, all of society has reinforced this lie and when we yank that reality away, those who think they deserve the corner office, the prettiest girl, the biggest house and the Nobel Peace Prize for doing nothing, will not accept no for an answer — even if that means taking it from others.

When we as parents went into their schools and said: "not my child, it is somebody else," when we accepted their cheating or stealing or lying and gave them a reward instead of a punishment we taught them they are above everything, even the rules — they will have no compassion on those that they will perceive destroyed what they had coming.

They mean it — it's not a joke — they mean it when they say this abyss was created by our elders' stupidity and Obama would be smart to focus on the college town because, step aside grandma, we want our health care and we want it now. Our leaders are continuing to teach this relentlessly:

(BEGIN VIDEO CLIPS)

THEN-PRESIDENTIAL CANDIDATE OBAMA: It's not that I want to punish your success, I just want to make sure that everybody who is behind you, that they've got a chance at success too.

I think that when you spread the wealth around, it's good for everybody.

REP. MAXINE WATERS, D-CALIF.: Guess what this liberal will be all about? This liberal will be all about socializing... the government running all of your companies.

RAHM EMANUEL, WHITE HOUSE CHIEF OF STAFF: You never want a serious crisis to go to waste.

THEN-PRESIDENTIAL CANDIDATE HILLARY CLINTON: The other day, the oil companies reported the highest profits in the history of the world. I want to take those profits and I want to put them into a strategic energy fund...

VAN JONES, FORMER WHITE HOUSE GREEN JOBS 'CZAR': No more broken treaties. No more broken treaties. Give them the wealth! Give them the wealth! Give them the dignity...

ANITA DUNN, WHITE HOUSE COMMUNICATIONS DIRECTOR: And then the third lesson and tip actually comes from two of my favorite political philosophers: Mao Tse-Tung and Mother Teresa...

RON BLOOM, WHITE HOUSE MANUFACTURING 'CZAR': We kind of agree with Mao that political power comes largely from the barrel of a gun. And we get it that if you want a friend, you should get a dog.

(END VIDEO CLIP)

How many more failures do you need to be convinced? This can't last. What is our exit strategy? I fear our exit strategy is to fundamentally transform this country and redistribute wealth. And when the inevitable rationing begins, that will mean somebody's not going to get a kidney transplant. Somebody's not going to get heart surgery. Somebody's not going to get chemotherapy.

Someone will be left out.

Who's it going to be? The 20-something whose future we promised would be carefree and pain-free? The one who doesn't give a crap about anyone or anything else but themselves because they're "special? Look at all my last-place trophies? Will it be them or will it be a 75-year-old past their prime?

I think you know the answer. Now, step aside grandma, and give me my damn health care.

— Watch Glenn Beck weekdays at 5p & 2a ET on Fox News Channel

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?'"
