GLENN: It's election day in New York, in Virginia, in New Jersey. I mean, you know, there's elections going on today all over, but those are the three that we're keeping our eye on. We have congressman, who is it, Jim Moran? Is that right?

PAT: Yeah.

GLENN: Pat?

PAT: Yeah.

GLENN: Congressman Jim Moran. He says the Virginia ticket give me the exact quote, if you will.

PAT: All right. Let me find it here real quick. He said, I mean, if the Republicans were running in Afghanistan, they would be running on the Taliban ticket as far as I can see.

GLENN: Now, how is that exactly, congressman? How is that that the Republicans are now the Taliban ticket?

STU: Well, they did support the bombing of Afghan buildings, skyscrapers with passenger jets.

PAT: No, I don't think so, Stu.

STU: That was actually on their posters.

PAT: McConnell? I don't think so.

STU: They don't want any women McConnell said specifically, I'm pretty sure, that they didn't want any berkas and no women out by themselves without men.

PAT: I don't think that's

GLENN: And then stone people when they do stuff you don't like, he know he doesn't mention that, that's an important point.

GLENN: President Clinton has come out and said that the New York race is a bellwether on Obama. Now, why would you say that? Unless you think you're going to win. If you are going to pull it out in the end, then you might say that. You don't say that

PAT: Or unless you want to hurt Obama.

STU: He said that about New Jersey?

PAT: He said that about New York 23.

STU: He's got to be convinced he's winning.

GLENN: He's got to be. You never say that. You never say that.

STU: I thought you were going to say about New Jersey, which is close. You can make the argument he probably thinks he's going to win that.

GLENN: No.

STU: Usually like for example

GLENN: They are not convinced they don't think they are going to win that. This he know they are going to win that. That thing's so deeply in the bag. Do you know, what is it, the head of the Senate now is active AFL CIO?

PAT: You talking to me? Huh?

GLENN: In New Jersey?

PAT: You talking to me over there?

GLENN: If you get if you have now, the new guy coming in in January, if you get Corzine and the president of the Senate AFL CIO, you got New Jersey in a whole new place, baby. You know what I'm saying, eh?

PAT: You know the unions are probably putting those big rats outside the polling booths and if you vote for in New York if you've never been in New York City, they put these giant rats outside buildings that are not using union labor. I assume that's what they're for.

STU: I've seen them in here, too.

PAT: They are rats. That would be a great technique to use outside polling booths in Jersey.

STU: Now, are those the same rats that they have running around the subway, eating at your feet, nibbling at your toes? Those are different.

GLENN: You get used to that. You live in New York for a while, you're like, forever.

PAT: The rats I think in the subway are actual bigger than the actual.

STU: Definitely.

GLENN: Politico.com weighing the significance of the House special election New York pitting congressman conservative Doug Hoffman against Democrat Bill Owens. If conservative Doug Hoffman wins decisively in New York's special election, Democrat officials privately acknowledge it would deal a blow to their efforts to pass healthcare reform legislation. Swing district Democrats are carefully monitoring this race even more than the top two gubernatorial races Tuesday as a test of the national sentiment towards the administration's policies. If a conservative unknown roared back in the polls just a month's time, in just a month's time to defeat the Obama endorsed candidate, the outcome would send shock waves across the Hill.

PAT: Has to happen.

STU: Remember, too, that this district votes Republican all the time. But it's not a hard core conservative district.

PAT: No.

GLENN: The district went for Obama.

STU: Yeah, it went for Obama. Remember the reason there's a special election is because Obama took the Republican congressman and put him as, what, secretary of the army. It's not necessarily, you know, you are not thinking hard core rightwing district here. If this guy can pull this off, I think

GLENN: Tomorrow he may tomorrow Obama may regret doing that because you know he did that thinking that he's got it in the bag, he'll get the ACORN candidate or the Working Families Party ACORN candidate. You know what I mean? He thought, oh, I got another one in the bag.

STU: It's a no lose.

GLENN: Right. Owens, whose campaign has relied on national Democratic establishment has run a steadfast supporter for the president's agenda even if he's wobbled a bit on the question of public healthcare option. The administration which has been generally reluctant to send political capital down ballot campaigns jumped on his bandwagon early on. Former president Bill Clinton called the race a referendum on President Obama's agenda for healthcare and on our entire progressive agenda.

PAT: What a dangerous statement.

GLENN: He's trying to raise funds.

PAT: Wow.

GLENN: Do you know somebody told me the other day do you know how much this program has raised for the Democratic Party? Apparently we are a very big draw.

STU: Yeah, they put us in fundraisers a lot.

GLENN: They are putting us in fundraisers all the time now, stop Glenn Beck, stop Glenn Beck.

STU: Of course what they don't talk about is all the funds that have gone the other way because of our supporters. That's what they always that's what they did with what's his face, Joe Wilson. Remember the day after that Democrats came out and were bragging about all the money they raised?

GLENN: Yeah.

STU: Then Wilson raised like five times the amount.

GLENN: Well, I imagine. I mean, Doug Hoffman. Doug Hoffman is a product of the Sarah Palin, the tea party, the 9/12ers. That's who Doug Hoffman is. He told us yesterday he's a 9/12er.

STU: Yeah.

GLENN: He joined, you know, 9/12 project and is doing it because he's like, you know what? Times have changed.

STU: Can you believe this, though? I mean, a politician signing that 9/12 project? That's controversial. I mean, it's talk about love of country, it's talking about faith in some sort of supreme being. It's talking about being honest.

PAT: Principles and values.

STU: Values, oh.

PAT: What kind of rightwing rhetoric is that?

STU: Disgusting.

GLENN: Here is the audio now of the robocalls that are going out from the Republican. Because you want to be able to make sure that the Republicans know, vote for the conservative, right? She left the race did you see the show last night when I played the her dropping out of the race? I had not seen it. I had only read about it. You see it. She's not a happy person.

STU: No.

GLENN: She is not a happy person. She is not happy with Doug Hoffman. And this was her chance to be in congress. This was it.

STU: Oh, yeah. I mean, look. Where is she going now obviously? Nowhere.

GLENN: Nowhere.

STU: Second of all, if you look at that, it votes Republican forever. She is a moderate. She is not going to anger any of the Democrats really. She had to have thought that that was locked up when she got the nod to run.

GLENN: Absolutely, absolutely. Now, she is now making robocalls for the Democrat. That's how good of a Republican she is. She's now making robocalls for the Democrat. Now, is anyone talking about her betrayal?

PAT: No.

GLENN: Okay? If the Democrat would ever say, you know what? I got to throw my weight with the Republican, my gosh, that would be the big story that this person betrayed the Democrats, that they're you know, this is a traitor, et cetera, et cetera. Nobody's really saying this.

STU: No, all they say is that conservatives forced her out.

GLENN: Correct.

PAT: And the party's too extreme for this open minded woman.

GLENN: Right. So here's the robocall that's going out.

VOICE: Hi, this is DeDe Scozzafava calling on behalf of Bill Owens and I wanted to let you know that I'm supporting Bill for congress. Since the beginning of my campaign is that this election is not about me. It's about the people of this district. It's not in the cards for me to be you representative but I strongly believe Bill Owens is the only candidate who can build upon John McHughes' lasting legacy in congress. In Bill Owens I see a sense of duty and integrity. He will be an independent voice, devoted to doing what is right for New York, to address the tough challenges ahead, we must rise above partisanship and politician and work together. Please join me in voting for Bill Owens on Tuesday.

PAT: Don't think so.

GLENN: Don't think so. We've got to get away from the partisan politics. Well, you've done that because the parties are meaningless now. And we have to get away from special interests. ACORN! ACORN!

STU: And I don't think that's the worst thing she said in there. The worst thing she said in there, the biggest lie is that it's not about her. It's all about her. All this is is she's annoyed that the conservative came and this is all revenge.

GLENN: No, I think it's a little deeper than that. It's not just that she's annoyed. She's now paying her dues to look

STU: To where she should have been in the first place.

GLENN: Yes. Look, I am convinced that... there is a choice that is being made right now in Washington. Somebody said to me the other day, "Glenn, you're in the minority." And I said, I know, I know. And he said, "Well, would you let me finish for a second?" I said, okay. He said, "There's only about 10% of people in Washington on the right that actually believe in what they say." This is a guy who's been around. There's only about 10% on the left that actually believe in what they say. The other 80%, they just go wherever they think they can, you know, win. That's it. They'll just, they'll move wherever the power is moving to. He said, "So you've got to connect with the people, the fact that if they make themselves known and make themselves known as being dependable, they will be there, they will defend you and they will rip your intestines out and they know that you're dependable," he said, "You'll make a big change." He said the unions are dependable. The unions don't forget. ACORN does not forget. And those people are actually in their office saying, "By the way, we have this many members and we're going to you help us out, we're going to hand out flyers for you. We're going to run ads for you. We're going to make sure there's money on the table for you. We're going to help you every step of the way. Just help us here. You just help us here. Well, who are they counting on? Do they believe this system is over and Obama's power grab for special interests is going to work? If they believe that's going to work, that that's where the real power is in the future did anybody see Valkyrie?

STU: Yeah, yeah.

PAT: Yes.

GLENN: If you saw Valkyrie, think of your politicians as the general of the army, remember, and Tom Cruise came in and said, I'm just saying that maybe there's a place for you. And he was interested.

STU: Yeah, yeah.

GLENN: And what did he say? "You have my attention when I know the furor is no longer in play."

PAT: Yeah, he wanted to be on the winning side.

GLENN: Exactly right.

PAT: He had no principles.

GLENN: No principles whatsoever.

PAT: Didn't care.

GLENN: I know where the power is, and when that power is removed, I'm there. And that's the way most politicians are. So you have to convince them that Obama's power, the SEIU and ACORN and all of that stuff, it doesn't matter because in the end it's either going to be ACORN and SEIU or you, America. It will. That is the choice. Whether you want to believe it or not I think you do, but whether you want to believe it or not or your friends want to believe it or not, it is true. There is only going to be, there's only going to be one group standing: Either the special interests that are currently in Washington and have all the entrenched power or you.

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?'"
