Hello, podcasters, what an exciting Monday, I mean, the show started off, you know, that sure did it the way that I don't think any broadcaster has ever really done before. Well, I did hear almost the exact same break on Rush just the other day. But other than that, you know, you do a different show. Yeah. And this is an uplifting way to come out of this is this is something that you've probably never heard anybody do and mean it.

You're listening to the best of the. I want to play some audio before we start with Pat, I'd just like to get your opinion on this. This came to me from a listener in New York that said they were just they were just, you know, going to church and they thought everything was fine until the priest did this.
Listen, I now invite you to stand and joining us in the prayer for racial justice by we start responding. Yes. To each of the following statements. Do you support racial justice, equity and compassion in youth and human relations just to affirm that white privilege is unfair and harmful to those who have it and to those who do not? Yes, you affirm that white privilege in the culture of white supremacy must be dismantled wherever it is present. I don't agree that there is that culture to support racial equity, justice and liberation for every person.
Can I change your question? Yeah, no, it's you affirm the inherent worthwhile dignity of every person. Of course. Yes. Therefore, from this day forward, will you strive to understand more deeply the injustice and suffering, white privilege and white supremacy? Oh, good gosh. Yes. I mean I mean, we've got to help transform our church culture, one that is actively engaged in seeking racial justice and equity for change for everyone, church culture.
And we're going to find another way to get young people with the same respect.
You see this is this America wake up Catholics. Wow, that's wake up. That is a Catholic church in New York and not New York City.
Catholic Church in New York.
And this goes to remember remember the hell that was unleashed on me when I said, if you have a church that talks about social justice, run for your lives. Oh, yeah.
And I, I corrected it by saying I understand that Catholics have social justice from the eighteen hundreds. That doesn't mean the same thing. However, many interpret it as the same today. And so you better know which know which social justice you're on because one is collective, that's the collective right there.
And if you're in a church like that, you have got to stand up and clean out your own church or find a new one. But you are in danger. You are in danger. When our churches start to preach this from the pulpit, when they won't speak out about the loss of freedom, yeah, they are on the wrong side. And just talking about this from the perspective of extreme leftism where I have to accept all the white privilege nonsense.
I'm not going to. I'm sorry. I don't I don't either. I don't. I don't I'm not I'm not going to accept your premise. So you need to change the question a little bit. Do I want anybody to suffer prejudice? No discrimination? Absolutely not. No way.
I work for the rest of my life to make sure that we are fair. Yes. And we are. We are equal. Yes. Not equal in ending. Not equal as as my sin is my father's sin and is your sin. No, no. I'm not equal in that. I didn't I didn't have slaves. I would go there for that matter. Did any of my ancestors. Neither did any of mine or yours. My ancestors fought for the north to end slavery.
One died and one never recovered from it. I mean, hello. Yeah, it's. But you're white so you're responsible for this.
That is legitimately. That's what they're saying. That's the kind of racism that's being. Oh no. But jammed down our throats.
Oh but there's there's there's more. Here's a DC writer talking about what he's ready to do for the police and the White House and to Congress. Listen to this.
I'm at the point where I'm going to be great. I'm at the point where I want the White House down on the White House, down British to the initiative. I want to take it to the Congress. I take it to the Congress, OK? I want to take the fight to the fight. And at the end of the day, yeah, if they hear hereth, we burn them the bill. OK, the same guy that said he was going to drag Trump out of the White House and not wait for the election.
Is that the same? I don't because there was another guy that was saying he's going to drag Trump. Maybe you're thinking about Beddoe O'Rourke. Did you hear what he said this weekend?
I didn't listen to this. All of us understand it's not up to Donald Trump or any person, any one person in this country as to whether or not the results are accepted in the election. But let's go into this eyes wide open. If this election is close and even if Joe Biden has lawfully won both the popular vote and the Electoral College vote, make no mistake, Donald Trump will do everything he can to try to create chaos and confusion about the results and then probably seek to invalidate them with as attorney general, both of whom Donald Trump and William Barr have talked about, mail in ballots being fraudulent, though we know that the truth is.
Twenty percent are it is one of the safest, most secure twenty.
It's not voting. Twenty percent may not accept the results, but who gives it because the. Most of the country will be forced to. The rest of the country will be forced to live with the results, what does that mean? I don't even know what that means. I don't know. I'm it's better he probably doesn't even know what that means.
But that was an interesting I thought maybe that you were talking about.
And, of course, the the rioter that was killed in the riots in in Portland this weekend. Of course, he wasn't a riot rioter. There wasn't a riot. There wasn't even a fight. This was an execution of a Trump supporter. And I think the audio proves it. Listen to what's being said here.
I just got word the person who died was that person. I think our community. That's all I took out the trash. How are you? I want to talk about the point where we can take out the trash on our site tonight. I'm not sad a fascist died tonight.
How vile. Take out the trash ourselves. Now, the audio. I don't know. Do we have the audio of the actual shooting where the the rioters, the Black Lives Matter, people are heard saying, we got one.
We got one right here. Where? Right here. Boom. What did they have?
The two Trump supporters as if they were hunting for Trump supporters. You found a couple right here, found a couple right here, and then you hear the gunshots.
It's amazing. It's unbelievable.
This is an execution. Remember when he said this would be the summer? I've said it for the last. Well, I said it in sixteen.
The night was 16. And then this year just took a little while. You've always said you're off on time. Yeah, I'm always off on timing, but here it is.
Yeah. This is sixty eight. This is if not worse than sixty eight. Well haven't gotten to the political assassinations yet, but I believe this is the threshold, this is the beginning of that. Now we saw what happened that that video of people going home from the White House.
Yeah. On the night on his wife unbelieve. Terrifying, not just Rand Paul. Did you watch video after video after video. Yeah. That one girl with the skull and crossbones on her on her hat. That is just did you see that one where she's following several couples just screaming at them the whole time?
I hope this week wakes everybody up because it's amazing to me that they thought they were going to have a situation where they could let people walk out of that speech and walk to hotel rooms afterward.
Yeah, I'm not a good are waking up in these circles because something it's not safe, really bad is going to happen one of these days. So people are dangerous.
My one of my relatives has a has very good friends in New York, a lot of good friends in New York, young friends and. This person is not a Trump supporter, not a Biden supporter either, just not a Trump supporter, doesn't like Donald Trump.
She told me that she was online with some friends and her friends are now starting to share how to build guillotines, and they thought it was funny what was being done in front of Jeff Bezos house.
And she said, man, this is you're not making a statement here other than behead this guy because he's rich. When did you guys when did you guys slip into the dark side without knowing it?
And the French Revolution? You're right. And that is the choice. The American Revolution or the French Revolution. And what did the French Revolution lack? What was it that Thomas Paine was trying to. He was he was condemned here in America for the rest of his life. He was buried in a popper's grave because he was misunderstood.
He was not an atheist, he was against religion, he had a problem with organized religion, he was not an atheist and I have his own letter to prove it.
But he was not an atheist, what he said was to Ben Franklin and and John Adams, he wrote a letter and he said, what are you guys doing to me?
What are you doing to me? I was there.
I saw the miracles. I know that God exist. I'm against religion. These people are against God. I'm trying to appeal to them and say, yeah, yeah, yeah. You don't need the church. Yeah, yeah, yeah, right. We don't need the church, but the churches and God. This is the argument we're having right now and people are saying you don't need God, God is bad. No, you know what? The churches have gone bad from time to time.
Some of the churches are bad.
Some of the churches are great, but God remains the same.
And if we don't have God, we go the I mean, I can't believe we'll look out that revolution when I know I'm not only did they kill all of the all of the royalty, then they started killing the leaders of their own movement.
Yes, well, they're all the same. You don't think that they will come after the left itself?
They're already doing it. They're already doing it. If you don't toe the line, you're a traitor. I mean, it's it's exactly the same.
And and I can't believe how many people have been duped by the Trojan horse. You know, the Trojan horses in America, the real and actual plight. Of the black man in America, the actual plight, the actual things that are real problems, the Trojan horse is the is the big bad policeman. And they're wheeling this sacrifice up there, wheeling this thing up to us and saying, look at the poor men that have been abused by the big bad police inside is nothing but a death cult.
You can't let that through your gates. And it's being wheeled into our churches. It's being wheeled into our communities. It's being wheeled into our schools. You cannot it's a Trojan horse.
Black Lives Matter, I just going to put the square up, don't put that square up, don't do it. Do do all black lives matter? Yes, they do, but when you say Black Lives Matter, you are endorsing Black Lives Matter Inc. and it is an incorporation. Look it up. It's an entity.
And the biggest Trojan horse that I've ever seen, and just like everybody, if that actually happened, there had to be a bunch of people standing around going.
Have we checked what's inside that thing? Yeah, no, it's a gift.
You're listening to the best of the Glenn Beck program. Peter Schweizer is with us right now. How are you? Great to be here, Glenn. Thanks for having me. Great to have you. Peter, I tell you, I you must feel very, very alone.
It's you know, it's interesting. And I mean, we talked about this before. I mean, you sometimes and in the in the past and in the present will we'll talk about something and it's sort of ahead of its time. Yeah. We first started talking about the Bidens and China back in twenty eighteen when I wrote a book called Secret Empires, came here to Dallas and talked with you. You know, it got a lot of attention. We hit number one on the New York Times list, but it basically was ignored by the major media, was ignored in Washington, D.C. And part of the problem is there are other people in Washington, DC that have deals with the Chinese as well.
But we're now at a point where Joe Biden is the Democratic nominee. He wants to be president of the United States. And the single biggest financial tie that his family enjoys is with the foreign government of China, not a foreign company, not an American company in China, the foreign government of China. And it seems to me that in an America where if a congressman owns ten thousand dollars of GE stock, they have to disclose it, yes, we should be interested in that, especially when you're talking about the size and the scope of the deals that the Bidens enjoy.
So to me, it's a central part of the conversation we need to be having. Right.
And it's amazing to me that Joe Biden could say, come on, man, they're not they're not a competitor.
They're not a worry to us. And what we're talking about here in America is.
A movement run by Marxists, and it's in the street crying out for a new system and a Marxist system, we know now that countries who have opposed us have infiltrated and have China in particular, poured money into our universities, poured money into our universities and and and have have come out and now said, you know, we're not a threat.
They're pouring money into there. They're pouring money into politics. And that's a Marxist quasi, you know, capitalist state.
It's a hybrid of private and public corporations. Right. And nobody is tying this together. Nobody is saying, wait a minute, is Joe Biden part of this Trojan horse?
You know, it's a great question. Here's what we know, Glenn. We know that Joe Biden is is essentially on an island by himself in most people in Washington, D.C. that talk about China. And I put Joe I put Barack Obama in a different category. Barack Obama has said China is a threat to the United States. We need to see China as a rising power that's going to challenge our interests. Those are not things that Joe Biden says.
That's what's so remarkable about this in the film. When you see the beginning of the film, you have sort of a collage of people left, right and center. I tell you, it is so powerful.
You're hearing four minutes of everybody, literally everybody on all sides of the political aisle saying China is a threat. China is a real threat. It's the threat to our economy. It's a threat to our nation. It's a real threat. And then. Come on, man. Yeah. And he said it repeatedly. I mean, there's the famous come on, man. But he has said for years, we welcome. Yeah. The rise of China.
Yeah. You know, we we think a rising China is good for America. He is on an island by himself. And so what we try to do with the film, Glenn, is answer the question why? Why is Joe Biden so far on an island when it comes to this issue compared to Barack Obama compared with one of the people in the opening collage is Ben Rhodes, the former national security adviser, saying China's a much bigger problem than Russia is.
The question is why? And you can look at Joe Biden's record and, you know, Joe Biden is a guy that tends to shift with the winds. We all have seen that in his 40 year career. But to me, there is that fundamental question of he became much more soft on Beijing when his son started getting very lucrative exclusive deals courtesy of the Chinese government. And you have to ask yourself, I mean, if we're worried about and talk about is we should, you know, Wall Street fundraisers for politicians.
We we talk about big tech fundraisers for politicians. We better darn well be concerned about a foreign government making a presidential candidate's family wealthy through this cut out deals that they have no no qualifications to get. People say that, you know, I think it's what is it? 60 percent of those of Democrats still believe that Donald Trump was colluding with the Russians. Right. 60 percent still believe that. And it's proven to be false. Right. This is true.
And no one in the Democratic Party and many in the Republican Party. Right.
Don't seem to really care all that much that there are massive amounts of money being transferred into the Biden coffers. Right, by China. Yeah, forget collusion. This is this is you know. Right. This is worse than was about collusion with Russia. That's about winning the election. So you can be president. This is about just enriching yourself, right?
I mean, exactly. It's even less honorable than the most dishonorable thing you could do. Well, that's exactly right.
And but I think an important point to add to that, Glenn, and we talk about this in the film, is this is not just the case of the Bidens getting wealthy and the Chinese kind of laughing and saying, this is great when you look at the deals that Hunter Biden did. And we go through this in the film in detail. When you look at the deals that he was involved in with the Chinese, these were private equity deals where the Chinese government financed private equity deals.
Hunter Biden was on the board of the firm. His business partner was the the vice chairman of the firm. What did that firm do with all that Chinese government money? They ended up buying companies and doing commercial deals that benefited the Chinese militarily. And I don't say that loosely. What do they do? They bought a Michigan based company called Hanukkah's that produces precision machine tools, anti vibration tech. Everybody recognizes, including the federal government, its dual use, you can use it on civilian things like like cars, you can only also use it on military capabilities like like the, you know, stealth plane, things that we do not want people to have the ability to do.
So here you have the sitting vice president's son involved with a Chinese funded firm and a Chinese firm that buys a machine to a company in the United States that ends up benefiting the Chinese militarily in the technology space.
It's more than that. It's it's not just that he happens to this is a company the Chinese military wanted to acquire. Exactly.
Couldn't acquire. Yes. Because of the laws. And then when Biden gets involved, all of a sudden there's no one standing in the way. What happened to the the oversight from the United States government on that?
Right, exactly. It goes through a process called syphilis, the Committee on Foreign Investment in the United States. Well, who sits on the board at the time? That's Joe Biden's friends.
And the Chinese are very shrewd about this. I think they they calculated pretty early on, if we try to do these deals and we don't have the camoflauge of a prominent family attached to these deals, we're going to have a very hard time getting these deals approved. So you have the biggest deal. You have this incredible situation. We've talked about it before, but has not been picked up by the media that won. One of the things that Hunter Biden's firm does is they invest, invest in a company called CGM in China, general nuclear.
They invest in it. They're an anchor investor in it. And what happens about eight months after they invest in it? Again, the same firm that now the vice president's son is part owner of.
Is charged by the FBI of stealing nuclear secrets in the United States, nuclear secrets tied to small reactors that are used in US submarines. The Chinese don't have a nuclear capability with submarines, but they're a step closer now, courtesy of CGI and a firm that the vice president's son was an anchor investor. And it's astonishing.
It's not only that and there's not a surprise there for the Bidens. There was no surprise there because they were charged months later.
Yeah, but the vice president and his son had to have known that that firm was being investigated by the FBI for divulging state secrets.
Yeah. That the that firm engineers connected to that firm had been spying on the United States for like 19 years. So it's not a question of was and a sketchy company that the FBI was looking at. They absolutely were. And as you point out, it's the charges that came eight months later. And the point is, you know, do we really think that the Bidens are naive enough to to believe that if you're going to invest in a Chinese nuclear firm, that there's not going to be a military component to it?
I mean, the entire Chinese economy, especially under President Xi, is geared towards every technology being dual use, whether it's artificial intelligence, whether it's a new energy propulsion system, everything is deemed to be new, dual use, that is, use it for civilian purposes and for military purposes.
So would you would you when we come back, I want to take a one minute break.
And I don't know if you're I don't know if you're prepared to do this, but I would love you to explain how the Chinese system works over there, because we just we've been there.
People try to convince us that, oh, no, this is a good capitalis. No, it's not right.
It's nothing like a free market. Exactly. And I'd like you to go into that. When we come back, there is a new video out. It came out today Riding the Dragon, the Biden's Chinese secrets.

This is the best of the Glenn Beck program.
And I was telling my daughter last night, who is much more of a New Yorker, I think, than the rest of the family, and she was we were talking last night and I said, you really have to watch the convention.
I'm going to send you clips. Watch the convention.
And she said, I don't think I need to see it. And I said, You do.
I said for the first time, I felt there was real honesty at a GOP convention and not from the politicians. I don't trust the politicians when they get up and say things.
I mean, from the regular people, there were it reflected the American heart, not just the conservative heart, but the American heart, that we're not into all of these riots.
We are into helping each other. We are into real justice.
We we are into cleaning up the cops, but but also holding people accountable, helping them when they're down, helping them up, but then also holding people accountable.
It was it was an amazingly diverse group of people, including a ton of Democrats and even some even some Social Democrats were were speaking speaking up for Donald Trump last week.
One of the guys who is a Democrat is one of the six mayors around the state of Minnesota that have seen their party. And when I don't recognize this anymore and are still Democrats but are now supporting Donald Trump this fall, one of them is Robert Vasilievich. I hope I have that right, Robert. He is the mayor of Eveleth, Minnesota.
I hope I have that one right as well. Robert, how are you, sir?
Very good. This morning, it sounds like you were born here the way you pronounce those names. Well, there you go. There you go. My my my mother was from spend some time in Minneapolis when she was when she was little. So maybe that's it.
Maybe that's it.
So tell me tell me what happened to you, Robert. I mean, you've you've always been a Democrat.
Still are, right? Yes. OK, and yet you're voting for Donald Trump. Why? Well, we've been in a battle with constantly for a number of years with the radical environmental movement, and they seem to take control of the Democratic Party in every policy and platform they had is against everything we have up here. They want to take our wilderness away from us, our jobs. And Donald Trump was the only one who stepped up and said, I support mining.
And he didn't stutter when he said that. And I said, this is our guy.
So it's more about jobs than it is about what you're seeing in the streets of Minnesota.
Jobs, number one. But the chaos here, you know, I haven't seen a real Democrat for 30 years, like the people I grew up with, a lot of friends of ours, you know, they supported the working man, middle class America. And we seem to have taken a back seat to these predetermined agendas. I really don't know what what they're trying to do.
So are you stay or are you staying a Democrat because you're hoping the party will swing back and be more like it was and you want to continue to change it or. Or to me, the political party thing is, I think might be fading out, because right now you can call me a Republican or Democrat because we're all thinking alike. Republican Party and the Democrats. I know we all have a vision for America like our parents and. Wow. And that's that is not Robert.
That is not what we're seeing on television or on the news. The Democrats that I mean, my grandparents were Democrats. You know, a lot of family members that I had growing up were Democrats. And they loved the country. They just they just saw the party as big business or the small guy. And now it is. But they both loved America and wanted it to succeed now. I don't see that in Democrats.
And you're saying that you think that there's a lot of Democrats out there like that.
There's a lot of them that think like like that. No, because the association with the party, you're seeing the split, the divide, not supporting the working man or the middle class and the middle class built this country and actually supports the whole world. A great, strong America economically helps the whole world. And now everybody speaking up, they kind of kept their comments to themselves. But now a group of the other media still jumped on the bandwagon.
Yeah, me and I was really happy for that because that's the undercurrent. The word on the street. People are getting really upset. I mean, it's that we're getting beat up by these environmentalists and these radicals in the party, so. So, Robert, what? I mean, five others joined you is do you think that maybe you kind of were the the hole in the dike, if you will, that all of a sudden it just started to crack apart?
I mean, is it scary to do what you just did?
Well, you know, I just took a stand because I really feel for young people making investments in our areas, the kids in the small towns who are struggling. And I think the rest of these mayors had just had enough. They gave them enough rope. Hopefully things would come back to normal. How we perceive normal, but it's just getting worse when you have the rioting, lawlessness, people threatening people's public safety, you know what I mean? That was just pushed it over the edge.
Everybody had enough.
Are you getting are you getting heat from your stance? You know, I had such a small amount of negative comments or just getting a deluge of calls from all over the country, different parts of Pennsylvania, even California and stuff. They're glad we took the stance. I would say it's probably maybe like 90 to one. I had one. Wow. And then came up here and did a story on us. They did. They did a real good story up here.
And I got more complaints and some of the Democrats liberals up here that when I said Trump is our guy, I got more calls then than I did over this. It just got really burning. Really.
Why do you do you think it's because maybe the liberals weren't watching last week and they were just, like, oblivious to you. I mean, that was a pretty big deal.
If people are people are speaking out. And I mean, the ones who are calling me are old, long time Democrats here. And they're looking at the candidate because they know we have nothing to support our thoughts. Our thoughts have always been the area, the natural resource based economy and our wilderness. You know, we've kept both in check for years and now we have people trying to take that away from us because anybody can use our wilderness if they get their way, it'll be just a thing of privilege to be able to go up there.
And you don't think Biden I mean, Biden's always been for the working man. He's the you know, the working class Joe is what they call him.
Are you making a funny here?
No, I was just quoting him, you know, that's what they call me, working class Joe. And it's like, no, you call yourself that. Nobody else does. But.
Well, I like Donald Trump. He's not a politician. So his word means something because he's used to doing business deals. And I'm tired of these elected officials. We've got a for sale sign on their back and you see what happened. All the jobs left give away everything or any advantage we had because I've seen the economic roller coaster we've been on up here in the money business for years. Well, it is almost shocking to talk to a politician and not have them toe the party line, and I have tremendous respect for you.
And I would I would say the same thing. If somebody was going the other way, I would question their common sense.
But I would I would I really respect people who don't toe the line because it's not encouraged in any way in today's society.
So thank you for that, sir. So it's you got to get to the extent sooner or later, it's our survival. Thank you. Thank you. You're exactly right.
That is the that is one of the six mayors now, the first one that spoke out. And he was at the RNC. Robert Vasilyevich, mayor in Minnesota, Democrat remaining a Democrat.
