Glenn Beck: Obama ego on display...again

To see the comment, go to the 8:25 mark of the video

GLENN: New poll numbers out. President Obama's hit 44%. His approval rating. I don't know if he knows this. This isn't golf. The lowest score loses. Congress is at 18% and here is a, just a quick peek why. Here is President Obama talking about healthcare, and does any of this feel genuine? And I have to show this on television tonight if we can because you have to see the video. He is dead serious. You'll hear the crowd laugh, but he is absolutely dead serious when he says this. You have to see the video. Can we put this in the newsletter today? We'll ship this out in the newsletter so you can see it at Sign up for the free e mail newsletter and we'll ship it right to your desk today. But here he is, President Obama.

PRESIDENT OBAMA: I got a letter. I got a note... today from one of my staff. They forwarded it to me from a woman in St. Louis who had been part of our campaign, very active, who had passed away from breast cancer. She didn't have insurance. She couldn't afford it. So she had put off having the kind of exams that she needed and she had fought a tough battle for four years. All through the campaign she was fighting it, but finally she succumbed to it. And she insisted she's going to be buried in an Obama T shirt.

GLENN: Dead serious.

PAT: Completely.

GLENN: I mean, I can't, I can't even describe. Pat said to me, you have to see this video. And I just listened to it. Then he said I said, oh, my gosh. And he said, he's dead serious. And I said, wow. He said, you have to see the video. Turned the screen around, and I watched the video. It watches much differently than it sounds.

PAT: It's pretty uncomfortable because

GLENN: Very uncomfortable.

PAT: He didn't mean for people to laugh.

GLENN: He has that stoic you know that face that he makes when he kind of lifts his chin up like, "I am God," that kind of look? He has that kind of look to him when he's saying this, you know, staring right at the TelePrompTer. So he's either completely disconnected, which is a very big possibility, completely disconnected from what is happening in the room with him and he's just so lost in the TelePrompTer, or he thinks that it's dead serious that she wants to be buried in an Obama T shirt. He thinks that's a good thing that he should be saying. I think that's creepy.

I would like to also just ask real quick, how does he get a letter or a card from a woman who's dead?

PAT: Just yesterday, right?

GLENN: Just yesterday. "I just got a card, I just got a letter, or a card or smoke signal from a woman who just died."

PAT: Well, one of his staff got it and then sent it to him. Maybe because she died, he thought, oh, this is a good story, send it on to him. He's got a speech tonight; he can talk about this.

GLENN: May I I just got a letter.

PAT: You have a letter?

GLENN: Or a card.

PAT: Smoke signal?

GLENN: It's a piece of paper. Dear Glenn.

PAT: Who forwarded this?

GLENN: A staff member of mine.

PAT: Okay.

GLENN: This is from somebody who's never worked on the show.

PAT: Oh.

GLENN: But big supporter.

PAT: Okay.

GLENN: For a long time.

PAT: Do you give them health insurance or not?

GLENN: No, I don't give them health insurance.

PAT: Okay.

GLENN: Well, they are not working on the show. They just listen.

PAT: They work for the show?

GLENN: No, not at all. I mean, if you were working for the show, on the show, around the show, and you were working hard and you were a big supporter and I was somebody that had some clout.

PAT: Yeah.

GLENN: I would probably get you health insurance instead of rather just, instead of just having you die. You know what I mean?

PAT: Would you?

GLENN: But it would be cool if they were buried in a Glenn Beck T shirt.

PAT: Yeah.

GLENN: Wouldn't it be neat? That would be neat.

STU: (Laughing).

PAT: (Laughing).

GLENN: No, I thought it would be cool if he was, you know, she was buried in a T shirt.

STU: (Laughing).

GLENN: No, she would dear Glenn, I live in a small community in Southeastern Kentucky. We've seen the firsthand results of these devastating policies. In our community friends are missing.

I don't know what happened. I didn't you know the problem with writing a note or a smoke signal is you don't know what happened to the you can't ask the question like, they're missing; should we go out and look for them?

Families are suffering. Neighbors have been lost. And for what? Glenn, I beg of you to demand answers for the voiceless Americans out there. When will this stop? Why has it gone on this long? Where do we find relief? In our small town alone, 1,457 people have attempted suicide simply because they are sick and tired of hearing Barack Obama read letters or talk about letters that he reads every night. People in our small town can't take it anymore. Please, please no more personal stories hand selected by one of his aides to give at talking points or photo ops. Mr. President, please, for America's sake, tear up those envelopes. Sincerely, Gertrude. She writes counsel here in a shaky hand, she wants to know if we have any kind of Glenn Beck Snuggies or socks that she could be buried in.

PAT: Maybe a koozie or something?

GLENN: Yeah. Do we have koozies? Maybe we could put the entire coffin into a koozie.

PAT: A Glenn Beck koozie would be really cool.

GLENN: That would be really cool.

PAT: Really cool.

GLENN: It would show her support even after death.

PAT: (Laughing).

GLENN: Stu, why aren't you laughing?

STU: (Laughing).

PAT: (Laughing).

GLENN: Oh, man. And he only has an approval rating of 44%.

PAT: Hard to believe.

GLENN: Okay. This is I've said before now for, what, over a year, when this guy hits 42%, trouble. Look out; this guy's trouble. Not that he's not already trouble. I mean, I think, well, at least for some of his workers who are being buried in his T shirts. This guy wait a minute, hang on. I just thought of something. Should we get, should we get that who's the woman that was hanging out with Arnold the pig? Should we get her on the phone to find out? Because maybe Obama is slaying these people. Have you noticed how many people he has personally come into contact with that are now dead and can't speak for themselves? Have you noticed that?

PAT: Yes, either through letters, smoke signals, actual meetings, what have you.

GLENN: Right. They're just dead. Do you think that it's possible that these are the people that that crazy man on television was talking about when he said he was going to be slaying Americans?

STU: You think that's the new case? Is that what you're

GLENN: No, I just wondered.

STU: You are just wondering out loud.

GLENN: I'm just wondering if that's who she was talking about. He does seem to have an awful lot of letters from people who are dying.

PAT: Well, he's reading letters every night, though, you have to remember. A few of those are going to be dying.

GLENN: Is this a possibility this is like, I didn't even I'm just try to think like Columbo. They always return to the scene of the crime and then they try to help you solve it.

STU: Hmmm.

GLENN: See what I mean?

STU: See, I'm thinking it might it could potentially be true, although I think Pat's idea that he does read a lot of letters, maybe he's also getting a lot that are just like, hey, we visited the Grand Canyon last week, it was beautiful, here's pictures of the kids. But he doesn't read those on TV. He only reads the ones that involve people dying and suffering. Possible.

GLENN: You know, can we you know, I'm going to take a break. When we come back, could we write a letter to the president? Let's see if he'll ever use it. Let's see if we can write a letter to the president ourselves, one that we can get him to read. I know the last time I heard him read a letter it was at the state of the union and he said it was from, what, a kid that didn't understand Wall Street?

PAT: Yeah. He was concerned about his credit default swaps, I think.

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.


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.


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?


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.


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.


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.


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.


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.


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.


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?'"
