GLENN: Well, when we were doing our homework, we came across a guy named McChesney. The free press. McChesney is a guy who says, and he has been at the White House, check the records, twice now for meetings. He is a guy who says that capitalism needs to be broken apart and taken apart, dismantled brick by brick. Well, the openly socialist, Marxist magazine Monthly Review just had a conference last month. Guess who spoke there. He was fine with communists and communism. He still has a burning hatred for the United States of America. The one, the only Jeremiah Wright returns to the scene.

REVEREND WRIGHT: This magazine unflinchingly has tackled the tough issues from McCarthyism to militarism, from the Chinese revolution through the Canadian revolution to the Cuban revolution, from the lies told by United States presidents to the lies told by the United States media. We celebrate tonight six decades of dedicated service.

GLENN: Dedicated service of a socialist Marxist magazine, Monthly Review. So the magazine covered the Cuban revolution, which he said nothing bad about or any other revolution he mentioned, but the U.S. and its media: Lies, nothing but lies. Now, maybe this doesn't mean anything. Maybe I'm just too sensitive. Maybe I just haven't gotten over the Reverend Jeremiah Wright, but it never was about Jeremiah Wright really. It was about Barack Obama sitting in a pew for 20 years; what does the man believe. Surely there was nothing else controversial that night just over a month ago with Jeremiah Wright.

REVEREND WRIGHT: You stayed up front. Your starting point is, quote, no nonsense Marxism, unquote. But you dispel all the negative images we have been programmed to conjure up with just the mention of that word "Socialism" or "Marxism."

GLENN: Yeah, yeah. You'd hate to, hate to do that. Thank goodness for somebody dispelling the awful stereotypes of Marxism, you know, that we have in this country. I mean, gee, look at the fruits of Marxism and socialism. Well, wait, before I get into that, let's hear some more about the splendor of Marxism and just how bad America really is.

REVEREND WRIGHT: Grateful for the opportunity to bring you a word of Thanksgiving from those who don't ordinarily get a hearing unless they go along with the program, sing in tune with whatever is the popular tune and stay in lockstep with the political pundits who tell us what is politically correct, what is permissible and what will be tolerated from a person of color in this land, the land of the greed and the home of the brave excuse me, the land of the greed and home of the slave. (Applause).

GLENN: The land of the greed and home of the slave. May I ask a serious question, and I'm not being flippant: Why? Why would you live here in America if this is the way you felt about America? Why? I mean, I would honestly like an answer to that question. There are socialist regimes out there, there are Marxist, communist governments where your ideals are being upheld, right? Why not go to Venezuela unless, unless you would like to see Venezuela come here? Unlike those communist countries, there is no wall around this country keeping anybody in. Have you noticed that there used to be something before the total collapse of their economy called an iron curtain around those? How about the area we referred to behind the Berlin wall? Thousands, maybe millions tried to escape the oppression, the misery wrought by Jeremiah Wright's precious Marxism. And if they were caught trying to escape, they were shot. Seriously, America, what has happened to us? This kind of rhetoric used to be reviled and now it is permeating the White House! These people hid in the shadows and rightly so in America. They represented everything that was abhorrent to Americans. But here is the man who married Barack Obama to the first lady Michele Obama, baptized their children. Here is the man that Obama listened to for 20 years over and over and over again, and it is not a problem?

REVEREND WRIGHT: For the people. My work with liberation theology, with Latin American theologians, with the Black Theology Project and what the Cuban Council of Churches taught me 30 years ago the importance of Marx and the Marxist analysis of the sociologies of the vulnerable and the oppressed who were trying desperately to break free of the political economies undergirded by this country that were choking them and cutting off any hope of a possible future where all of the people would benefit. My exposure to the FMLN in El Salvador, the Sandinistas in Nicaragua and my presence at the 15th Jamahiriya in Libya taught me what I have read in the pages of the Monthly Review which is as Joshua Stanton says, though we need not always agree with one another, we must do the work necessary to at least understand one another.

GLENN: Yes, we do. And see, that's why we don't force you to leave this country. We don't have erase opposing viewpoints like Venezuela does. It is not wrong to have these points of view. It's just puzzling. Marxism, where all the people would benefit, he says. Please, America, tell me you reject that thinking. Democrats, independents, for all that is holy, please. He claims that Marxism is a system, quoting, where all of the people would benefit. Where is that utopia, sir? Where is the Marxist model of success? Where is it? Where all of the people are thriving equally? We have tried to educate the young people in this country about the real fruits of Karl Marx's labor, death and oppression, from Lenin to Stalin to Chairman Mao to Pol Pot. They starved. They murdered millions of their own people. They stole liberty. They crushed freedom. In order to have one thing, not equality but control. They spied on their people. They denied free speech and the people's right to worship as they choose. This supposed reverend applauds this system and gave it over and over again every Sunday to the Obamas, and they sat and soak it in. And he is so unafraid to speak it out just last month again.

Ever since Jeremiah Wright has come into the limelight and complained about our militarism, is anyone under the impression that the communists were peaceful, that communists are an unarmed bunch of flower children? Ask the Czechs. Ask the Poles, the Hungarians about the tender mercies of the Soviet sweetness. You might want to check with Georgia, a former ally of ours, that are struggling with everything they've got! How about Latvia, the Ukraine, the Baltics, the Yugoslavs, all of Eastern Europe. And oh, let's not forget Afghanistan. And the South Koreans might have something to add to that as well as the South Vietnamese. Oh, no, I forgot. The Communist North politely invaded and wiped out the South. Nevermind. Jeremiah Wright tries to wrap Marxism up in a blanket of love and concern for the poor. The only concern he has for the poor is to make sure that everyone is equally poor, except for the ruling elite. What kind of twisted freakish perversion of the scriptures convinces people to believe that forced redistribution of other people's money is charitable? Giving is charitable! Taking is a commandment! Don't steal!

Look, here are a few of the things that we know. We know that Barack Obama was mentored by a communist, Frank Marshall Davis. We know that in his own words that he preferred the company of a Marxist professor in college and Marxist professors in college. We know that he thinks when you spread the wealth around, it's good for everyone. We know that that is one of the main tenets of Marxism. We know that he hired Van Jones, a revolutionary communist radical. We know that he hired Ron Bloom, a manufacturing czar that kind of agrees with Mao and believes that the free market system is nonsense. We know that he hired Anita Dunn and that Chairman Mao is one of the two people she turns to most. We know he hired Mark Lloyd, someone who believes our freedom of speech rights are exaggerated, quote/unquote, and that Hugo Chavez, the revolution of Venezuela was, quote, really incredible, end quote! We know that he appointed Carol Browner to the cabinet, a member of the International Socialist Organization. We know that he hired John Holdren who believes in redistribution of America's wealth and we know that this administration is eager to sign a climate change treaty in Copenhagen with the UN that will redistribute our wealth to third world nations. Now maybe, now maybe that I've done the math wrong, I forgot to carry the one. I don't know how many more pieces of evidence you need. Maybe, maybe it doesn't add up to anything. Maybe the laws of physics just don't apply to our savior and Lord in the White House Barack Obama. Maybe magic fairies will sprinkle social justice down on all of us likes pixie dust and it will be a wonderful, wonderful world where there will be no bloodshed and all of the animals will talk like they did in Disney movies. Maybe... I don't see it happening. But there is one thing I do know. We must ask the one question. We must focus on this one question: Does it matter. Does it matter that their anticapitalist, socialist, Marxist radicals in the executive branch of the United States government. We need to decide. Does it matter? For two years people looked at the Jeremiah Wright story: "Oh, he's just a crazy preacher." No, he is a Marxist, now an admitted Marxist, now with the audio from a month ago extolling the virtues of a socialist revolutionary magazine who has ties to the administration. I bring this up because I don't expect a single person to change their mind on Jeremiah Wright and think now, oh, he matters. It is jaw droppingly shocking to me every day that there are those among us that just cannot see, they can't see the perfect storm that is about to unleash its fury on us. There are those that are going to tell you that it's all blue sky and sunshine. I tell you, there's a lot of work to be done. I tell you that we are going to make it. But I don't want you to doubt for a second that the hammering you have to do and the hammering that you will take in the coming months. I don't want you to lose sight that all of that is right. It is time to build an ark because the rain is coming.

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?'"
