Glenn Beck: Will you be a burden or a shelter?


GLENN:

This is one of those things I ask you to go with me on but I want to talk to you

about a real change of course and a real direction. I believe that I have hit my

maximum footprint. We have about 30 million people that listen and watch and

read every single month. We have 30 million people within the Glenn Beck

footprint. That's one tenth of the American population. I have been telling you

that these things were coming. I have been ringing the bell as hard as I can. I

have pledged my life, my fortune and my sacred honor over the last five years,

and you have, too. And you have been here. And last hour I did an opening

monologue and tonight we'll show you the video. It is, it's stunning. It's

stunning what happened just over the weekend, the things that we have said were

coming are now here. And I have been thinking lately about, you know, where do I

go from here. And where I go from here is grassroots. Where I go from here is,

quite honestly, away from New York City. Where I go from here is into real life.

I am the answers don't lie in New York City, they don't lie in Chicago, they are

not in Washington, D.C. They are at your home and your town hall and your

community. They life within your own life. And that's where our problems are and

that's where the solutions are. So I want to start with something that you

people say what does the average person do, Glenn? What do I do? Because I don't

have a lot of money and et cetera, et cetera. And I've told you food storage. I

can't tell you, it may sound ridiculous to you but I can't tell you how

important it is. And you will hear let me tell you something. You will hear my

words ring in your head. Do not be the person that said, oh, jeez, I wish I

would have listened to him. Get food storage. Now, if you don't know how to do

that I told my wife last night, do you know who bought up just tons of land in

Brazil for sugar? George Soros. Isn't that weird? I told my wife last night, I

said, buy sugar, honey. Buy sugar. Buy flour. These things are going to staples

are going to become extraordinarily expensive. Look at this. I don't know if you

guys saw this, but the classic Thanksgiving dinner? This is a chart, and I'll

hold it up for the Insiders but if you look at this, it shows that in 1986 the

price of a classic Thanksgiving dinner pick it up on 3. There it is. The classic

Thanksgiving dinner. And you'll see that it's pretty much flat line because

that's adjusted for inflation. If you don't adjust for inflation, here's the

cost. And inflation really is just inflating the money. That's all they are

doing is they are inflating the money.

PAT: It's like the cost of buying the Twelve Days of Christmas gifts?

GLENN: Yes.

PAT: You know where the calling birds went out? I mean, that's

GLENN: You can't even

PAT: I mean, that's, you know, turtle doves, you can't even get a good turtle

dove anymore. You can't.

GLENN: Don't even talk to me about the pipers piping.

STU: I've been trying to get the lords a leaping for a while.

PAT: They're expensive.

STU: They are out of my price range.

PAT: You know why? You know why they are expensive? Unions. Union members.

STU: Union leapers?

GLENN: Communists? Communist union members?

PAT: The lords, they are all communists union members who make about $72,000 a

day.

GLENN: All right. Pipe down! All right, so here's the thing. Costs are going up.

People say how do I afford it? "Glenn, I'm on the line now." The average person

now, this isn't obviously everybody. The average person and I cannot believe

this has $20,000 to $25,000 worth of excess stuff in their house. Now

PAT: That's hard to believe.

GLENN: That is really hard to believe. My wife and I went through our house this

weekend and we put sticky notes on everything we're going to sell.

PAT: You're not including, like, furniture that you actually sit on, TVs you

use, that kind of stuff?

GLENN: No, we did.

PAT: You are including that?

GLENN: No, no, no. No, no, no. Not stuff you

PAT: Stuff you're using or stuff that you're not using?

GLENN: Some stuff you use and stuff but you don't need. You know, it's extra

stuff. It's like, you know what, we don't need this, you know. But mainly it's

stuff you don't use.

PAT: Okay.

GLENN: You know where we found a lot of stuff? In boxes in the basement.

PAT: Oh, yeah. Oh, yeah.

GLENN: And in, like, cupboards. Stuff you've got in the back of the cupboard and

you're like, I forgot we even had this. You know what I mean? We found stuff

this weekend that we had just put away from another move and we're just like, I

don't even remember having this. It's like you got a whole new set of stuff.

PAT: Yeah.

GLENN: And so what we did is we put sticky notes on everything and we are going

to put it up on Upillar and we're selling it. And what I'm selling it for is

probably different than what you're selling it for. I'm going to encourage you

to do this right now. I want you to talk to your spouse tonight, and I want you

to go through your stuff. And your husband or your wife is going to think you're

crazy. I don't really care anymore. I don't care what anybody thinks of me

anymore. You think I'm crazy? Fine. Woo hoo, great, make fun of me. I mean,

stand in line on that one.

What I'm asking you to do is sell it, for one of three reasons. Go through and

find out what truly is meaningful in your life. Find out what you need. We've

got so much crap. We have so much clutter. We have so much materialism in our

lives that it clutters.

For instance, I am trying to convince my wife right now, and me, get rid of the

cellphones. Now, this is really no, no, no, I know this is really, really

bizarre and most people can't do this, but I want to get rid of them because I

don't want the electronics in the house.

PAT: You never use yours anyway.

GLENN: I know.

PAT: You might as well get rid of it.

GLENN: I know, but my wife uses it and I call her on hers all the time. We leave

them in the car or something else. I don't want all the distractions in the

house. I don't want them with the kids. I just don't want them.

STU: That's legitimate to try to keep them out of the house obviously. You know,

they're great for emergencies, there's uses for them.

GLENN: Yeah, yeah, and that's why I'm saying I have different reasons for it.

I'm not saying, you know, don't have a cellphone. That's ridiculous. But get all

these things that were supposed to make our lives easier have made them more

complex.

STU: Well, you've seen those Windows, the Windows phone commercials they have

been airing lately which is their entire ad campaign is if you get a Windows

phone, you'll get off the phone faster. Like we'll give you all your updates on

one page and I mean, I don't know if it's any good but that's their pitch to

you. It's what they are seeing in people is that they want to get off the phone

and start reconnecting with actual people.

GLENN: Yeah.

STU: That are near you.

GLENN: We have to do that. So anyway, you can what I want you to do is I want

you to go through your house. Because if you have let's say you have $5,000

worth of stuff in your house that you just don't use. You've got sitting it's a

gift somebody gave you. Get rid of it. And here's why. One, pay off your bills.

If you had $5,000 worth of stuff sitting in your house that you don't use, if

you could get rid of it and you could raise $5,000, could you pay off your

credit card? Could you pay down your debt? What could you do with it?

Two, if you had $5,000 and you had paid down your debt, how about food storage?

Could you use $5,000 do you know what you could buy with $5,000 for food

storage? Enormous. Enormous amount.

PAT: You get a year's supply for five people.

GLENN: That's enormous. Pay it off and get your food storage. People have been

asking me, "Glenn, we want answers. What do we do?" Politically? Politically

it's in Broke. All of the answers that took us a year, over a year to do. Well,

this stuff has taken me about a year to come up with as well and this is just

the beginning. First step, get rid of your stuff. Sell it. The stuff you don't

use, sell it and pay down your debt and do food storage. I would do food storage

first.

The third option for people who are in my situation is I have found a town in

Ohio, and I will tell you about it in the coming days, but I want to recreate

George Bailey's It's A Wonderful Life at the end, that end scene. And my wife

and I have found a food pantry that is really struggling. And I mean, these guys

puts their hands on the shelves every day and pray on these shelves and say,

Lord, help us fill these shelves. Well, I don't know what the Lord's doing but I

know what we're doing, and we're going to help. And we are going to raise money

out of our own stuff and we're going to help other people with it. I'm going to

try to lead by some example here and show that we can help each other out, and

we can do it without really hurting ourselves at all. Helping ourselves. It's

good for us. It's good for me to get rid of this crap in my life and it is good

for the other end. So will you join me on this? I will give you more details.

I'm going to post it on

Upillar. It will probably be up there by next week. I'm going to post all my

stuff on Upillar and there's some great stuff. And I mean, there's some stuff

there that, I mean, there's some stuff there that is, you know, one of a kind

of, you know

PAT: Did you put the Pujols bat up?

GLENN: No, I didn't. I didn't do that.

PAT: Oh, I see.

GLENN: No, I didn't.

PAT: That's something you need! That's something you need, is it, Mr. Beck?

GLENN: There are a few things that my wife said no to and that was one of them.

I did put our pool table up, made just for my family. It says made for the Beck

family. Put that up. I love the pool table. My wife's like, which was the last

time you played pool? And I'm like, okay, it's been about a year and a half, but

I love it. And she's like, pool table is going. I said, and the pool table goes,

the brand new beautiful exercise equipment that we had to have, good stuff, it's

been used about three times. Gone! And I am happy about it.

STU: Isn't this just an excuse for, like, wives to be able to nag over things

they don't like?

GLENN: Oh, no, no, no. No, no, because it's like, oh, really? That's going? Do

you know what else is going? This is going. "I like that." You never use it.

STU: This is sort of like a trade war.

GLENN: It is, it is. It's great. It's really great. It was very liberating this

weekend. So please talk to your spouse about doing that. And we'll give you some

more information as we continue to move on.

 

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?'"
