Glenn interviews Palin TONIGHT

Glenn: Stu, you did fun with numbers last night. Give me fun with numbers last night. Will you?

Stu: This is going through some of the ratings that television ‑‑ I think there's some ‑‑

Pat: He sounds like a parrot.

Stu: This is what we discovered. This is Friday's ratings of the Glenn Beck program. Your ratings on Friday equaled the combined audience of MSNBC from Hard Ball, the Ed Show, Hard Ball hour 2, Olbermann and Maddow, plus 14,000 viewers.

Pat: Wow. Wow.

Glenn: I love these people.

Pat: Wow.

Glenn: Bill O'Reilly said last night, I saw Sarah Palin on and they were making fun of Sarah Palin on CNN and Paul Begala was, like, Oh, everybody thinks she's crazy, and Bill O'Reilly said, You watch. The numbers tonight ‑‑ this was on the show last night. You watch the numbers tonight with you on it will be huge, will be huge, and we nightly beat CNN 5 to 1. I think ‑‑ I think we meet them because the competition is less fierce at 5:00. I think we meet CNN and all these people by 6 to 1.

Stu: Yeah. Well, to illustrate another way, your audience on January 11th, which was Monday, Monday's audience, was the equivalent of Chris Matthews' audience for all of 2010 plus 137,000 viewers.

Pat: In the entire year.

Glenn: That's unbelievable.

Stu: Isn't it, like ‑‑ isn't it time to just shut it down?

Pat: Yeah, it is.

Glenn: No, no.

Stu: Play some slap shot commercials?

Glenn: No. It is time to say maybe we are out of step with the American people.

Stu: No. Sarah Palin's dumb and we have four people watching us. That's a business plan. Congratulations, MSNBC.

Pat: He doesn't feel that way about you.

Glenn: He doesn't?

Pat: No.

Matthews: I listen to you all the time. I say you're about 30 years older than you are. You're amazingly smart for such a young guy, anyway. Thank you.

Stu: I remember that.

Glenn: That was, like, one of the first times I was on television.

Stu: Yeah.

Glenn: And we were surprised because he said he listened.

Pat: All the time.

Glenn: Yeah.

Stu: You listen to that ‑‑

Glenn: This is before he went to the total dark side.

Stu: You literally listen to that guy in the interview that ‑‑ this is back, I think, 2003. It was when Real America came out. Listen to that guy and listen to the guy on television today

Pat: Totally different guy. I interviewed him about that time. I don't know if ‑‑ it was 2003 or something. He was moderate. You know ‑‑

Glenn: Yeah, he was.

Pat: I mean, he wasn't wildly conservative, but he wasn't this.

Glenn: Do you know what? No, wasn't. No, he wasn't, because if you play ‑‑ do you have the audio of what he said on December 23rd about our good friend Saul Alinsky?

Pat: Oh, yeah, I do.

Glenn: Hang on just a second. How could you be moderate? I mean, this is what people don't understand. When I say that Barack Obama is going to hit a bad, really bad spell and he's going to be pushed up against the wall, which he's never been done, it's never happened to him yet, he's going to be pushed up against the wall and what's going to happen? He's going to ‑‑ he's going to tear off the mask. I contend that all of these people have been wearing a mask. In the moderate day, you don't just change overnight. What happened was he decided, do you know what? I can really be who I am over here.

Stu: Maybe.

Pat: When you hear this ‑‑

Glenn: Is this moderate? Listen to this.

Matthews: To teach back to whatever our heroes from the past, from the Sixties, Saul Alinsky once said that even though both sides have flaws in their arguments and you can always find something nuanced about your own side you don't like, it's never perfect, you have to act in the end like there's simple black and white clarity between your side and the other side or you don't get anything done. I always try to remind myself of Saul Alinsky when I get confused.

Pat: Who doesn't?

Stu: Unbelievable.

Glenn: These people.

Stu: Or Mau, one of the people I go to first.

Pat: Yeah.

Glenn: These people have been lying to us for a very long time.

Stu: In that interview, though, with you, he praises Rush Limbaugh. I mean, he defends Rush Limbaugh in that interview and he praises you. At the time, you know, you were, much less known and weren't the most evil person in the universe at the time. So, I could understand him being differential to you.

Glenn: No, no. He said he listens to me all the time. Play that clip again because I just love this, because it goes against everything that he said. He listened to me all the time.

Matthews: I listen to you all the time. I think you're about 30 years older than you are. You're amazingly smart for such a young guy, anyway.

Stu: Amazingly to me.

Glenn: What happened to me? Did I get hit about a stupid stick or did I just start to become influential and now they have to destroy me?

Stu: I don't know. It seems like ‑‑

Glenn: Have I been in a car accident and I had a boo‑boo on my head all the sudden?

Stu: I don't think the change is with you. I think you're right, obviously, when you say you're going back to Saul Lynn ski. You know, everyone knows the guy was at least to some degree liberal and Democrat and everything else, but there's a significant personality change in that dude

Pat: There is.

Stu: He is now just literally insane on the air. I mean, he's just screaming about things all the time. He's changed.

Glenn: Have you noticed MSNBC, they have ‑‑ they think ‑‑ they think they know why, for instance, I'm successful. Have you seen this ‑‑ who's this Dillon guy?

Pat: Dillon Radigan.

Glenn: Oh, my God. I've seen him in an Elvis suit. I've seen him in a clown outfit.

Stu: Who is he? He's on what?

Glenn: He's on MSNBC. Nobody watches.

Stu: I know that.

Glenn: I've never seen anything like that and it's ‑‑

Stu: He's wearing clown suits?

Pat: Yeah. They think that the props are what is attracting people to you and so they've got this guy on doing this ‑‑ what they consider to be ‑‑ oh, this is the same kind of thing Beck is doing. This will be huge.

Glenn: They have no idea. It's the message. It's the message. You know, I ‑‑ no, I'm not going to ‑‑ I'll tell you ‑‑ I will tell you when I'm finished with this. Do you know what? I hate this. We used to have a radio show where it was just, like, you know, all of our friends hanging out and it was just people hanging out and, you know, people we could talk to ‑‑ you know, we could share and we were always flying urn the radar, which was always so nice. Now we have people ‑‑ I mean, I just met with some people just last week that ‑‑ what they're ‑‑ their job is, in the media, their job is to watch and listen to the show. That's what they get paid to do. And they do it ‑‑ not necessarily these people, but others do it to destroy and so I can't necessarily share a lot of things that I would like to share with you in the uptake. I have to tell you after it's been done, but I'm working on something now that I think we have a chance of actually doing and breaking a wall down, just breaking a wall down. I really, truly believe the paradigm is about to change and I'm going to ‑‑ I'm trolling right now for people ) people who think differently than I do, politically they understand that the paradigm is about to change. I want to see if ‑‑ I want to see who's out there and what are they willing to explore.

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?'"
