Fareed Zakaria doubles downs on his stupidity

GLENN: Fareed Zakaria, it's only a matter of time. This is we have the greatest job ever. I believe we have the greatest job of all time. Because these dopes destroy themselves every single time.

PAT: With their own words.

GLENN: Every time.

PAT: It's really pretty stunning.

GLENN: Yeah. So Fareed Zakaria, he comes out and he is yelling at me for numbers of how many Islamic terrorists there are and we quote, what is the source again, Stu?

PAT: It's the world opinion poll.

GLENN: Which is a huge, widely respected poll.

PAT: Oh, it's cited by the left all the time.

GLENN: And you use the we use their numbers and we take the low numbers of that poll.

PAT: Yeah, the most I think also the most restrictive definition of terrorism in the attacks on civilians in the United States. We're not even talking about like attacking

PAT: People who support them. In certain countries it's up to 39% I think of people, of Muslims who support

STU: Right. And that's for attacks on civilians in America.

PAT: Dying in America.

STU: I mean, you can easily go I think to a much wider definition of things like, you know

GLENN: Attacking American soldiers.

STU: Attacking American soldiers, attacking people from America that just happen to be working in Muslim countries. We have asked very specific questions about this and there's far too much support in the Muslim world for it.

PAT: And look, you could make the case that 10% of, I don't know, the American people are mentally ill, couldn't you? Could you make a could you make the case of 30 million people in this country have some serious mental issues?

STU: Probably.

PAT: I mean, you can make the case that 11% believe we didn't go to the moon. You can make the case that, there's a certain percentage, around 10% usually of just plain, kind of nutty people.

STU: And it seems for whatever reason Fareed Zakaria was absolutely mesmerized by the fact that a small percentage of a large number is also a large number.

PAT: Whoa!

STU: That's just a fundamental thing that goes on with percentages. That's what happens.

PAT: Let me break it to you, Fareed. That works with taxation, too.

GLENN: So here he is, Fareed Zakaria, he digs this hole after he is doing an interview with George Soros, and George Soros says that I'm becoming a dictator. And he's like, yes, I know, he's crazy. And so Fareed is clearly, you're not getting let's just put it this way. I'm not getting an interview with George Soros. Insiders tell us they're a little concerned because maybe you're starting to be a little unstable through all of this.

PAT: Oh, I hope not. I hope not.

GLENN: Are you okay? Because we're a little concerned that this is really bothering you, the way we're exposing you. And I, gosh, I hope that you're okay, Mr. Soros. I hope that you if there's medication that you should take or whatever. I don't know, but see a doctor. Don't become unstable. Don't become unglued. It's going to be okay. I know we're exposing all the things and you don't like to be exposed, but it's going to be okay.

So Fareed is talking to George Soros. Then he comes after me and targets me. Then Fareed, we take his argument apart two times and he decides to go on television yet again and do a little interview about this and now, of course, as they always do, they expose themselves for who they really are. Here is the proud CNN host Fareed Zakaria on the American people.

VOICE: Do you have faith in the American people that we can do this?

ZAKARIA: No, I think the people are the big problem. I mean, Americans, everybody wants to say the American people are so wonderful. You know, I think that when they come to recognize that they have to make sacrifices, too, that it's not just wasteful they need to have... I mean, you know, they need to recognize that some of what's going to happen here is fewer, they have to consume fewer things. They have to accept slightly higher taxes. And in the long run you will have a much better economy.

PAT: No. He thinks the people of America are the big problem. They have to understand that they must do with less. I love that. I love that. He's got contempt for the American people. And then you wonder why he's so upset with any fact and figure that goes against his little view of world. You know, that's great. That's great. These people, these anti American and, you know, this is I'm just getting this from him. If you don't like the American people, if you think the American people are the big problem, does that make you

GLENN: Anti American?

PAT: Anti American?

STU: I mean, I think you can be critical of the American people without being anti American but I mean, I you wonder, you know, as a guy who takes the time to do a segment on his television show to defend Muslims who want Americans to die in terrorist attacks and yet also does another segment where he's critical of the American people as the problem for all the economy because we're too selfish, you wonder why what's the opinion? Where is the basis for those two, those two opinions working together?

GLENN: I hate the whole un American, anti American because what does that even mean anymore? What does that mean, really? You can be an anticonstitutionalist? But anti American? Americans, the idea behind America is that we can have our own point of view and we can wildly disagree with each other and still all be Americans.

STU: Right.

GLENN: So I hate that. Anticonstitutionalist? Anti American citizen maybe? I don't you know, I don't know. I don't know.

PAT: I don't know.

GLENN: I just think he's

PAT: Do a little research, Fareed, and find out what the American people do for the rest of the world.

STU: That would be nice.

PAT: That's all I asks. $307 billion last year in charitable donations. $307 billion! Nobody is keeping everything they have. Or very few are. Very few are. Check into what the American people do. And have always done for this world.

GLENN: I would love to see these I'd love to see and there's no way you can do it. I just love to see these guys' charitable givings. Wouldn't you? Wouldn't you just love to see?

PAT: Would I.

GLENN: When you're a politician, you have to show your charitable givings and how much was it? Was it $1,000 that Joe Biden gave one year?

PAT: Yeah, if that. It was I think it was like $300 one year.

GLENN: I mean, it's these guys that are always preaching that they are, you know, people are greedy and everything else, they keep all of their money.

PAT: Yeah.

GLENN: They keep all of their money.

PAT: Yeah, I'd love to see what Fareed gives. I'd love to see what Jim Wallis gives. I'd love to see what Bernie Sanders gives.

GLENN: Yeah.

PAT: It would be fantastic if we got a

GLENN: Keith Olbermann.

PAT: Keith Olbermann, yeah.

GLENN: Michael Moore.

PAT: Because we have seen, you know, the Barack Obamas and Joe Bidens of the world and here they are out there talking about how stingy the rich is. They're talking about themselves because other rich people, other wealthy share what they have, willingly. Willingly. They give to charity and in abundance many of them.

GLENN: Yeah, I'm amazed at the that's where usually people see in others what they despise in themselves. You know what I mean? It's not always the case. But they just, they for instance, I think it's very, very clear in the progressive left, the uber left and not all lefties are like this. A lot of lefties really do give. A lot.

STU: Sure.

GLENN: It's just a very small percentage in compared to conservatives. And that's not me saying that. Fareed, you should look this up. Conservatives and God fearing people in particular are the ones that give the most. That's why we have always been this charitable nation. Because Ben Franklin said that's our religion. Our religion is there is a God, we're going to answer to him. Best way to please him is to serve him, and the best way to serve him is to help others and serve other people. That was the American religion. That's why it's no mystery why we're so giving. It's because that was the American religion. But now that we're chasing religion out, you're going to see those numbers continue to drop. And Americans will be less and less charitable. And the left will blame it on whatever. Now, that doesn't mean that you can't be giving and atheist. There are. It doesn't mean that you can't be on the left and beginning. There are. But the numbers bear out that the most giving are the God fearing and the conservatives. That's just, those are just the facts. Period.

STU: Yeah. Americans are extraordinarily generous in a world from a world perspective and from a, you know, inside America perspective, conservatives are the ones that are giving more.

GLENN: Correct. And it kills me. Because what they do is they see their own friends in Central Park who their charitable giving is, "Well, I'm going to make sure that this Rembrandt is preserved in my living room forever." You know

PAT: That's an important donation.

GLENN: Yeah. I mean

PAT: That's important.

GLENN: And they stand around, they stand around at these charitable art gallery crap and they're like, yes, we've got to you know, no one is helping the poor now. The government's just not doing enough. And they give at their cocktail parties for the galleries. And somebody's got to give to the galleries. I understand. We've got to preserve the art and everything else. But they don't do it themselves. They don't see their friends doing it.

STU: You are right. If the art was good, people would just be dying it. There wouldn't need to be any donations going on because there would be demand for it. I mean, I know that's crazy sentiment.

PAT: I'm not a huge advocate of it, you know?

GLENN: No, I'm totally fine. You give to art galleries, you give to

STU: You can give to whatever you want. I'm just saying if it were good, you wouldn't need to be given to.

GLENN: Not necessarily. There are things worth preserving that for instance, for instance, Mount Vernon. Mount Vernon, that is that's not taking any government money, but that takes a lot of money to be able to preserve that.

STU: People love it and they demand it and they give money to it because they appreciate it.

GLENN: Yeah, that's the same thing that the galleries are doing.

STU: No, no, I mean I'm not criticizing people for giving to a gallery. I just say that most of the time, many times. I mean, people can just purchase the things.

GLENN: I disagree with you but that's

STU: People wouldn't purchase the things that they

GLENN: Why are you antiart?

STU: I'm antiart? I'm antiart when it comes to government money to art.

GLENN: Oh, no, I am, too. But I'm pretty much anti everything when it comes to government money.

This is a moment "Cynical Theories" author James Lindsay probably hoped would never come. The liberal mathematician and host of the "New Discourses Podcast" recently came out as "unhappily" voting Republican, including for President Donald Trump, because the Democratic Party is now being controlled by a far-left movement that seeks to destroy our country and the U.S. Constitution.

He joined Glenn Beck on the radio program Thursday to explain why this election isn't "Trump versus Biden." It's Trump versus a "movement that wants to tear apart American society at its very foundation." Lindsay warned that if it isn't stopped, the left can toss out our rights by rewriting the Constitution — or abolishing it altogether.

"A lot of people don't understand what's happening with the election we have right now," he said. "They think it's a choice between Donald Trump and Joe Biden. And at the surface level, of course, it is. We're voting for each candidate to be duly put into the office of president. But that's not what we really have going on. We have, in Donald Trump, a man who's going to govern as we've all seen — the way he feels like he's going to govern. And we have in Joe Biden, a man captured by a movement that wants to tear apart the American society at its very foundation."

Lindsay noted the popular leftist narratives that call to "abolish anything they don't like," which now includes the U.S. Constitution. He added that "this is the movement that is controlling the Democratic Party."

"It is my belief, that there has been a largely effective kind of silent coup of the Democratic Party, that's turned it completely under the control of this movement. And that's what we're going to be electing with Joe Biden. So I can't do it," he said.

Tonight at 9 p.m. ET, 8 p.m. CT, Glenn Beck goes straight to the source of the biggest story in the country with Mayor Rudy Giuliani, who takes us directly into Hunter Biden's alleged laptop.

Despite Big Tech's attempts to squash this story, there should be a mad scramble in the media to get to the bottom of major corruption allegations, but they're willfully ignoring it. However, this is not just a story about Hunter Biden. This is all about Joe Biden. It's a story Glenn has been investigating for over a year that traces back to Ukraine and China. It goes directly to the root of corruption within our political system: How politicians use their family members to enrich the entire clan and sell out their country. While the media looks the other way, Glenn asks Mayor Giuliani to show us the evidence. Giuliani details the chain of possession of the laptop and reveals news that he only had possession of the laptop days before the New York Post story broke. He says, "I reported this the day after I saw it."

He also drops a major bombshell on the show and says Big Tech doesn't want you to see evidence that "establishes with texts, documents, contracts" that "Joe Biden was a 10% partner with a Chinese communist … and there are witnesses that will come forward and testify to it."

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.
