From the Project: Will it become illegal to talk about radical Islam?

The Project Parts 1 & 2 can be viewed ON DEMAND now on TheBlaze TV. Click Here to watch!

One of the biggest themes of the documentary series The Project is the idea that anyone trying to question the ties between the religion of Islam and acts of terrorism carried out by groups like Hamas and Al Queda. In the film, multiple interviewees discuss the challenges they faced at both the local and national levels when they questioned whether terrorists were motivated by radical Islamic beliefs. The people trying to raise the connections were quickly labeled Islamaphobic, and many found themselves ostracized both personally and professionally. As the film reveals, these attacks are all part of the radicals' strategy  to infiltrate the United States by shutting down any conversation about Muslim extremists, making it impossible to distinguish between peaceful Muslims and the radicals who want to destroy America.

In the clip below, Patrick Poole describes how he was labelled an Islamaphobe when he investigated an Dr. Salah Sultan, an Islamic man with connections to a radical organization in Ohio. The local religious community and even the local paper attacked him. But it wasn't long after Poole investigated him that he was condemning the United States and defending Al-Queda members.

Poole wrote at the time:

When I wrote my first article about Salah Sultan in April 2006, noting his close association to Muslim Brotherhood spiritual leader Yousef Al-Qaradawi and his many public statements promoting anti-Jewish blood libels, I was attacked by my own hometown newspaper, the Columbus Dispatch, as a racist, bigot and Islamophobe in an article written by religion reporter Felix Hoover.

Several prominent Islamic organizations and the Interfaith Association of Central Ohio launched a smear campaign attacking me, including the Islamic school in Hilliard that had employed Sultan as their religious director, enlisting theDispatch to defend the school and portraying Sultan as a peaceful moderate, not the racist, terror-supporting Muslim Brotherhood cleric that I claimed he was.

Two weeks after the Columbus Dispatch article was published defending Sultan, he appeared on Saudi Al-Risala TV, where he defended designated Al-Qaeda terrorist and Osama bin Laden mentor Abdul Majid al-Zindani, and claimed that the U.S. was behind the 9/11 attacks in order to launch a war against Muslims. Even though I forwarded the information to the Dispatch editors, they never made mention of the “peaceful moderate” cleric’s statements.

Even scarier, political correctness is stopping federal organizations from being able to properly research and understand the connections between radical Islam and terrorists. Leaders like Attorney General Eric Holder refuse to acknowledge the ties between Islam and terror, again labeling those who want to discuss Muslim extremism as bigots and Islamaphobes. Law enforcement training manuals have  been purged of any reference to radical Islam, and those who would try and teach about it are professionally blacklisted.

Perhaps most shocking, there is a movement led by groups linked to the Muslim Brotherhood to make it illegal to defame or deride Islam. The so-called "blasphemy laws" are even gaining traction among the United States government. Get the details in the clip below:

Sen. Ted Cruz: NOBODY should be afraid of Trump's Supreme Court justice pick

Sen. Ted Cruz (R-Texas) joined Glenn Beck on the radio program Wednesday to weigh in on President Donald Trump's potential Supreme Court nominees and talk about his timely new book, "One Vote Away: How a Single Supreme Court Seat Can Change History."

Sen. Cruz argued that, while Congressional Democrats are outraged over President Trump's chance at a third court appointment, no one on either side should be afraid of a Supreme Court justice being appointed if it's done according to the founding documents. That's why it's crucial that the GOP fills the vacant seat with a true constitutionalist.

Sen. Mike Lee (R-Utah) joined Glenn Beck on the radio program Wednesday to talk about why he believes President Donald Trump will nominate Judge Amy Coney Barrett to fill the Supreme Court vacancy created by Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg's death.

Lee, a member of the Senate Judiciary Committee that will consider and vote on the nominee, also weighed in on another Supreme Court contender: Judge Barbara Lagoa. Lee said he would not be comfortable confirming Lagoa without learning more about her history as it pertains to upholding the U.S. Constitution.

This week on the Glenn Beck Podcast, Glenn spoke with Vox co-founder Matthew Yglesias about his new book, "One Billion Americans: The Case for Thinking Bigger."

Matthew and Glenn agree that, while conservatives and liberals may disagree on a lot, we're not as far apart as some make it seem. If we truly want America to continue doing great things, we must spend less time fighting amongst ourselves.

'A convenient boogeyman for misinformation artists': Why is the New York Times defending George Soros?

On the "Glenn Beck Radio Program" Tuesday, Glenn discussed the details of a recent New York Times article that claims left-wing billionaire financier George Soros "has become a convenient boogeyman for misinformation artists who have falsely claimed that he funds spontaneous Black Lives Matter protests as well as antifa, the decentralized and largely online, far-left activist network that opposes President Trump."

The Times article followed last week's bizarre Fox News segment in which former House Speaker Newt Gingrich appeared to be censored for criticizing Soros (read more here). The article also labeled Glenn a "conspiracy theorist" for his tweet supporting Gingrich.
