GLENN: Now, I have to tell you, we haven't spent much time on Mel Gibson. I think we should spend a few minutes on Mel Gibson because this guy's out of his mind crazy!

PAT: It's to the point where it's kind of, it's really scary.

GLENN: It's dangerous.

PAT: It's dangerous for her, it's dangerous for him. He could hurt himself.

GLENN: Play the audio where he's just panting. He screams, he screams that he left his wife because they have no spiritual connection. Um, yeah. Mel, maybe because you're out of your mind nuts.

GIBSON: I left my wife because we had no spiritual common ground. You and I have none, zero! You won't even try. (Panting-Panting-Panting). You don't care.

GLENN: Hang on just a second. I don't think I've ever heard anything like that. No, no, I have. Play that again. I've heard this before. You have, too. I bet you've heard this before.

GIBSON: I left my wife because we had no spiritual common ground. You and I have none!

GLENN: Now, listen to the breathing. You've heard this before.

GIBSON: Zero! You won't even try. (Panting – Panting – Panting ). You don't care.

GLENN: Okay, stop. Psychotic. Okay, you know what that is?

STU: No.

GLENN: You've heard that from your dog. That's what happens when your —

PAT: I definitely heard it from your dog.

GLENN: Yeah, I have this big giant German Shepherd. I've got two of them and they both come up to me and they will be playing outside and they will both come up to me and they will come right up to my lap and they will be like... (panting – panting – panting ). It's usually followed by —

PAT: A lot of slobber.

GLENN: And I bet it is — play it again.

PAT: A lot of slobber.

GLENN: I bet she could have said the same thing if they had been in the same room that I usually say to my dogs. Go ahead and play it again one more time.

GIBSON: I left my wife because we had no spiritual common ground. You and I have none! Zero! You won't even try. (Panting – Panting – Panting ).

GLENN: Oh, jeez. Your breath stinks. Get out of here.

STU: (Laughing).

PAT: She may have said that if they were in the same room together.

GLENN: If they were in the same room.

PAT: Yeah, but I don't think they were.

GLENN: Yeah, either that or... somebody call 911! Somebody call 911!

STU: Because his breath stunk of Jim Beam.

GLENN: Oh, man.

PAT: I don't know that he's drunk, though. He's just psycho.

STU: Yeah, you hear him blow up from the beginning of this tape where he goes from normal talking into exploding like this. It's inhuman. I've never seen anyone act like that in my life. It's so unadulterated rage and it's so explosive so quick, it's frightening.

GLENN: Do you have another clip?

STU: Yeah, start it from the beginning.

GIBSON: Stay on this phone and don't hang up on me. I have plenty of energy to drive over there. You understand me? And I will! So just [ BLEEP ] listen to me. Listen to my [ BLEEP ]. Listen to what you do to me!

VOICE: I didn't do anything to you. You are ruining my life.

GIBSON: You make my life so [ BLEEP ] difficult.

GRIGORIEVA: Well, you know what?

GIBSON: Why can't you be a woman who [ BLEEP ] supports me instead of a woman that sucks off me. And just [ BLEEP ] sucks me dry. And wants, and wants. Go through here relationship if you're a good woman and you love me!


GLENN: Oh, my gosh.

STU: It's frightening.

GIBSON: No relationship ever worked with you, no!

GLENN: Okay, stop.

PAT: That's really creepy.

GLENN: We talked about it two days ago and I said, I get it, he's a racist. This guy's — this guy's insane. This is beyond racism. He is a danger.

PAT: Yeah, he did say one —

GLENN: At least to her.

PAT: He said one poignant really cognizant thing there and it was this.

GIBSON: This is mean! Get it? You get it now? What mean is? Get it?

PAT: Yeah.

GLENN: Oh, your breath stinks.

PAT: That is mean.

GLENN: What did he say?

PAT: This is mean. You get it? This is mean.

STU: Yeah, she was saying, don't be mean to me. And he was responding, that wasn't mean before. This is mean.

PAT: He's never been mean to her before.

STU: Never. I mean, this is obviously a first time thing right here.

PAT: He does, however, recognize, though, that this, in fact, now is mean.

GLENN: This guy should be in a hospital.

PAT: He should. She told him that. She told him. Do we have the section where he says —

GLENN: You kind of feel bad for him.

PAT: Yeah.

GLENN: Up until he cuts her head off.

PAT: Well, that hasn't happened yet. So —

STU: Not yet, although —

GLENN: May I just say, if you see any of Mel Gibson's friends getting into a white Bronco, call the police.

STU: He does have at one point she says, you know, what kind of man hits a woman while she's holding his child? And he responds that, you deserved it. So basically saying that this has happened already.

GLENN: Well, we don't know what his evidence was.

STU: They did not outline the evidence.

GLENN: Jeez.

STU: There's no point I feel bad for this guy, though. I don't. There's no moment.

GLENN: Hang on just a second.

STU: Needs to be away from people.

GLENN: He needs to be in a hospital.

PAT: He does.

GLENN: He clearly — I mean —

STU: A hospital that's locked from the outside forever.

GLENN: No, a mental hospital. I mean-

STU: Actually he deserves to be in prison if that story's true, in prison for a really long time. If he's hitting women when they're holding children, he should be in prison, not a hospital. In prison.

GLENN: You know, have we ever heard from Mel Gibson's wife?

PAT: Did this happen since her or, you know, did something make him snap or has he always been like this?

GLENN: I bet he's always been like this.

PAT: Because I never heard her speak out. And they were married for a long time. They have been married for like 20, 25 years.

GLENN: You know that's the thing that I always liked about Mel Gibson.

PAT: Yeah.

GLENN: Because he had been married, it was the same woman, you know, he married before, you know, he was anything and —

STU: It's a charming Hollywood romance with Mel. This is a beautiful - isn't it beautiful?

PAT: Do we have that part where she tells him he needs medicine?

GRIGORIEVA: You need medication.

GIBSON: What? What?

GRIGORIEVA: You need medication.

GIBSON: I need a life! Not a [ BLEEP ] little girl with a [ BLEEP ] dysfunctional [ BLEEP ]. I need a [ BLEEP ] woman. I don't need medication. You need a [ BLEEP ] bat to the side of the head.

GLENN: Oh, my gosh.

GIBSON: You need a [ BLEEP ] doctor. You need a [ BLEEP ] brain transplant. You need a [ BLEEP ] — you need a [ BLEEP ] soul. I need medication, I need someone who [ BLEEP ] treats me like a man! Like a human being! With kindness.

GLENN: (Laughing). Oh, my gosh! This guy.

STU: Kindness!

OLBERMANN: God forgive you.

GLENN: How is he roaming on the streets? Seriously how is he roaming on the streets?

STU: I don't know.

PAT: At a few points, though, it does sound like a Keith Olbermann rant. Have we ever seen them together?

STU: He's a little bit more calm, though, is he?

PAT: Yeah, he's a little bit more calm than Olbermann.

STU: Oh, no, you meant the other way around. I love that like, you treat me like a human being, you don't deserve to be treated like a human being when you act like that. You don't deserve it.

GLENN: You need a bat to the side of the head?

PAT: Really bad.

STU: You just want him away from all humanity.

GLENN: So really, I mean this sincerely, why is he still walking around?

STU: Well, they are working on criminal charges. They didn't have any charges on him.

GLENN: There's evidence?

STU: Well, the other problem —

PAT: I think she has to bring charges, doesn't she?

STU: That's a good question. I don't know.

GLENN: Why isn't she?

STU: I know police are working on it. They are in the middle of doing that now. They are looking into everything. You can't take just his evidence just this one thing. Also —

GLENN: This one thing?

STU: Well, yeah. Just because he threatens her, they have to go through the whole process. I mean, they can't just — you know. But the other thing is the tapes, it's apparently a two person consent recording state. So —

GLENN: Oh, this is ridiculous. Is this California?

STU: Yeah, it's California.

GLENN: This is ridiculous. No, it's not. No, don't give me the "Well."

STU: You know, should you be recorded by other people without their knowledge?

GLENN: If you've got a crime going on, yes. I mean, for the love of Pete.

STU: The law's the law, though. And if she recorded it legally, (illegally, it's not going to stand up in court.

GLENN: It's a crime.

STU: But that's not the law. The law is the law.

GLENN: Oh, okay. So if somebody is harassing me, if somebody is threatening my life, I've got to say, hang on just a second; I know you didn't like the medication thing but I've got to ask your permission to tape this conversation. What, are you out of our mind?

STU: Well, this is what she did and obviously it's been leaked out there and everyone knows it and it's going to influence people. I guess that's the way she fought it. I mean, she's denying she released the tape obviously, but —

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?'"
