Surprise: ABC’s Sawyer Hits Gore on Profits From Global Warming, Plays Glenn Beck Attack

GLENN: Al Gore was on the arm of the White House, MSNBC, and he was on today. He's also on the cover of, what is it, U.S. News and World Report or Newsweek magazine?

STU: Newsweek.

GLENN: Newsweek. The thinking man's thinking man.

STU: He's got an apple falling on his head, which is funny.

PAT: Are you kidding me?

GLENN: Yeah. No, they have Newton's apple falling on his head.

STU: Right. Because the apple and the Newton and then the teachers get apples.

GLENN: The thinking man's thinking man.

PAT: Unbelievable.

GLENN: I'm described as the, what people who aren't thinking

STU: No, wait, I can see here. Madman is how you were described by Time, madman.

GLENN: Yeah.

STU: And an angry style of American politics. And he is the thinking man's thinking man.

GLENN: Yeah.

STU: Just in case you are wondering.

GLENN: Okay. So here's what he said. Now put this together with what we have, Andy Stern, the most frequent guest of the White House. 22 times he was in the White House and he said workers of the world unite; we're going to have to have a global system. That's what they're doing. He's saying that basically thugocracy, we will use the politics of persuasion. Wasn't that it?

PAT: No. If the power of persuasion doesn't work, we'll use the persuasion of power.

GLENN: That's right.

PAT: That's the barrel of the gun thing from Mao.

GLENN: And he also talks about that, you know, the free market system isn't working. We just played George Soros saying the same thing, free market system is not working. Now let's listen to Al Gore, another genius, the thinking man's thinking man, on what he says. Listen carefully to this.

VOICE: I have got the vice president on the cover of Newsweek with an apple hitting his head.

VOICE: Oh, my.

VOICE: This is a historical analogy for the economic shift you are arguing for? . What's the)

GLENN: Stop, stop, stop, stop. Listen to this question. He's saying can you give us the analogy to make the argument for this economic shift give me the Van Jones quote that we have. Stu, the Van Jones quote that we were talking about today where he's talking about an economic shift that first we want to say we're going from this gray capitalism to a green market?

STU: Eco capitalism.

GLENN: Eco capitalism. Find that quote for me because you are going to need to hear it after this Al Gore. Here's Al Gore talking now about making an analogy to make the argument about the economic shift that he is proposing. Listen carefully.

VOICE: The crisis is unprecedented but in terms as you think historically, what is the most precise example of our shift from one economic way of doing things to the way you would like to see us do them?

GORE: Well, Alexander Hamilton at the birth of our republic was among those who charted a course to position the United States to lead the Industrial Revolution. I'm not sure it's a precise analogy but, you know, the Declaration of Independence and Adam Smith's Wealth of Nations were both published the same year and they were both based on a similar model. And the meteoric rise of the United States in world history came because of our commitment to democracy, to trust in people both in political choices and in economic choices, with the kind of free market philosophy, with government policies restraining some of the excesses. We made a decision to go full board into that Industrial Revolution. Now we are seeing a completely new, even larger shift because with our global civilization, we still depend on these carbon based fuels that are killing the future.

GLENN: Got it. So stop.

PAT: The future.

GLENN: So here's the thing. The giant rapid growth of the United States and what I contend changed the world was our founding and the belief in people and the belief for them to make and government gets out of the way. You make the decision. But now we're seeing an even bigger shift. A global community, a bigger shift than what the American experience brought. A bigger economic shift into a global community, and we can't rely on these fossil fuels anymore. So now what does that mean? The paradigm, the economic paradigm of trusting you, having you make the decision, you be the driver, government is limited is over. It is over to these people. And this is what the real battle is all about. But they're not making this case. They are making it more and more I shouldn't say that. We are discovering it more and more because we are not journalists, but we are acting like journalists and we are looking into different things. The SEIU stuff I got from an actual journalist. Scott Baker from Breitbart.TV, I asked him, could you look into Andy Stern for me. He is a journalist, and he and Naked Emperor News looked into Andy Stern, and we've got volumes of stuff on Andy Stern now. Now, you tell me.

PAT: The interesting thing about Al Gore, too, is because this New York Times story came out and they are talking about how, you know, he's making nobody knows because he's under no obligation to disclose anymore. He's not a politician. So he doesn't have to disclose his finances. But it's hundreds of millions of dollars. It's pretty clear he's into the hundreds of millions or more now. And so I mean, at least they reported the story. They didn't really spin it in a negative way in the New York Times. And his question was, do you think there is something wrong with being active in business in this country. Well, yes, when you're profiting from the biggest hoax in the world to the detriment of your country.

GLENN: I will tell you this. I am torn. I don't believe that he is genuine. I don't believe many of these people are genuine. If they are as smart as they claim they are, they are not genuine. But I don't have a problem. I mean, look. I get ribbed all the time because I'm just in it for the money. The New York Times will take me on because I'm in it for the money. First of all, I have to tell you I spend more money than I believe any other show in all of radio history.

PAT: Absolutely.

GLENN: On research and development.

PAT: I'd like to know how saying the things you do makes you money. It doesn't. It probably loses this company money. If we were, if we were purveying nothing but happiness or comedy or having fun

GLENN: I can tell you that

PAT: We would make more money, make more money.

GLENN: I can tell you that for the last two years, because the truth sells or I shouldn't say that. Because the truth attracts listeners, you know, you could say that we're making money. But for a while, before it's recognized as truth, it repels listeners. And for two or three years we were repelling listeners.

STU: And I have absolutely no problem with profit, and I don't care

GLENN: No, no. No, neither do

PAT: Absolutely.

GLENN: That was my point on Al Gore. I have no problem, if you are being engine win.

PAT: Yeah.

GLENN: I have no problem

STU: I don't care about you being genuine. If you want to make stuff and do whatever you want, you can do what you want. But this is an interest sorry, this is an interesting point here. Remember the way he made this money is by venture capital into a firm. But listen to the way the New York Times describes this deal today. The deal, the deal he invested in in a company appeared to pay off in a big way last week. In the next sentence you would think is, a lot of people decided to buy the product that he's selling.

GLENN: Government.

STU: Yeah. When the energy department announced $3.4 billion in smart

PAT: He's affecting policy.

STU: Yeah, he's affecting policy and that policy is what's fueling these companies. It's not actual desire.

GLENN: That is my problem, yeah.

PAT: That policy is going to lead to the climate change bill which is going to be the biggest debacle in American history.

GLENN: This is the oligarchy part of this that people don't understand. There's no fairness here at all. This is the oligarchy. Those with power, those with money and those with influence will influence the United States government to buy things that you don't necessarily want. Look, if you have influence and you can get a supercar built by GM or, you know, Michael Moore says, well, I couldn't get my movies made. But you eventually did, and you found a market for it. Here you're playing to a market of one. You are playing to the government. And the government, as they are doing now, they are selecting the winners and the losers. I got news. I got news for you. Unless you want to sell your soul to the devil, in this system you will be a loser.

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?'"
