Glenn reacts to Janet Napolitano’s shocking admission

The disinformation that has accompanied the investigation and reporting of the Boston Marathon bombing has been nothing short of spectacular. Perhaps there is no greater example than Department of Homeland Security Secretary Janet Napolitano’s comments in the wake of the event.

When TheBlaze first began to dig deeper into the story of the Saudi national, who was once considered a ‘person of interest’ in the bombing investigation before being downgraded to a ‘witness,’ Napolitano refused to even entertain questions about Abdul Rahman Ali Alharbi. She called Rep. Jake Duncan’s inquiry into the matter “so full of misstatements and misapprehension that it’s just not worthy of an answer.”

Well, apparently Napolitano had a change of heart because during a Senate Judiciary Committee hearing on immigration reform yesterday, she responded to questions about the Saudi national posed by Senator Chuck Grassley of Iowa.

GRASSLEY: With regard to the Saudi student, was he on a watchlist, and if so, how did he obtain a student visa?

NAPOLITANO: He was not on a watchlist. What happened is — this student was, really when you back it out, he was in the wrong place at the wrong time. He was never a subject. He was never even really a person of interest. Because he was being interviewed, he was at that point put on a watchlist, and then when it was quickly determined he had nothing to do with the bombing, the watch listing status was removed.

The inconsistencies in this comment are truly unbelievable. First, Napolitano denies Abdul Rahman Ali Alharbi was on a watchlist, only to then confirm he was on a watchlist – but only because he was a witness and they didn’t want him to somehow get away. To further complicate matters, she then admits he was considered at least somewhat suspicious because it wasn’t until they “determined he had nothing to do with the bombing” that his name was removed from the watchlist.

Do you follow that?

“That doesn't even make sense,” Glenn said exasperatedly on radio this morning. “Now, she's trying to get you to believe that this Saudi Arabian national wasn't a person of interest, they put him on a watch list because he was being interviewed. And once they discovered he wasn't involved, this person who of course they knew she just said wasn't a person even of interest, then they removed him.”

There is tremendous depth to this story, and Napolitano’s comments do not even begin to scratch the surface. Sadly, no one in the media seems to have the nerve to touch it. “And there's no one in the media – and believe me, you guys are – you people in the media are really truly criminal. You're criminal, and you should be asking why is it my network will not report this news? You have really good, really good reporters. Why is my network not reporting this news? There has to be an answer, and I'll bet you guys can come up with it about [snapping fingers] that fast. Why is my network not covering this news?”

Glenn has compared this story to the Monica Lewinsky scandal that was initially brushed off as a right-wing conspiracy, until Matt Drudge was able to expose the truth. It is unclear what affect this information will have on the Obama administration, but Glenn made a very bold prediction.

“The administration is coming undone here with this,” he explained. “I guess it takes – what does it take? I'm hoping that it doesn't take more. But apparently what it takes is a few Americans getting their arms and legs blown off in a U.S. city. That's what it will take for Americans to wake up out of their slumber. Maybe, maybe. If it doesn't, we are going to pay a much higher price to wake up.”

“But as horrible as this sounds, maybe this is the only pain we have to have. It sounds like I'm minimizing that pain. I know how horrible that was,” Glenn concluded. “But the pain from here gets much, much worse if you don't wake up.”

Everything comes down to the two Senate runoffs in Georgia. If we lose both races, we lose the country. Democrats know this and are pouring in millions to usher in a Marxist agenda.

As the Left tries to hide how radical the two candidates really are, Glenn takes us inside the Democrat war room to expose the wolf in pastor's clothing, Raphael Warnock, and America's Justin Trudeau, Jon Ossoff. Socialism, the Green New Deal, and "defund the police" are all on the table. And Glenn warns of what's to come if conservatives don't activate: Chuck Schumer will weaponize the Senate, and the radical Left will launch an all-out assault to ravage the Constitution.

Sen. Ted Cruz (R-Texas) joined the "Glenn Beck Radio Program" to explain how mail-in ballots are typically disqualified during recounts at a far higher rate than in-person, Election Day ballots, and why this is "good news" for President Donald Trump's legal battle over the election.

"One of the things that gives the greatest cause for optimism is, this election ... there's a pretty marked disparity in terms of how the votes were distributed. On Election Day, with in-person voting, Donald Trump won a significant majority of the votes cast on in-person voting on Election Day. Of mail-in voting, Joe Biden won a significant majority of the votes cast early on mail-in voting," Cruz explained.

"Now, here's the good news: If you look historically to recounts, if you look historically to election litigation, the votes cast in person on Election Day tend to stand. It's sort of hard to screw that up. Those votes are generally legal, and they're not set aside. Mail-in votes historically have a much higher rate of rejection … when they're examined, there are a whole series of legal requirements that vary state by state, but mail-in votes consistently have a higher rate of rejection, which suggests that as these votes begin being examined and subjected to scrutiny, that you're going to see Joe Biden's vote tallies go down. That's a good thing," he added. "The challenge is, for President Trump to prevail, he's got to run the table. He's got to win, not just in one state but in several states. That makes it a lot harder to prevail in the litigation. I hope that he does so, but it is a real challenge and we shouldn't try to convince ourselves otherwise."

Fox News senior meteorologist Janice Dean is perhaps even more disgusted with New York Gov. Andrew Cuomo (D) for his coronavirus response than BlazeTV's Stu Burguiere (read what Stu has to say on the subject here), and for a good reason.

She lost both of her in-laws to COVID-19 in New York's nursing homes after Gov. Cuomo's infamous nursing home mandate, which Cuomo has since had scrubbed from the state's website and blamed everyone from the New York Post to nursing care workers to (every leftist's favorite scapegoat) President Donald Trump.

Janice joined Glenn and Stu on the "Glenn Beck Radio Program" Tuesday to ask why mainstream media is not holding Gov. Cuomo — who recently published a book about his leadership during the COVID-19 pandemic — accountable?

"I'm vocal because I have not seen the mainstream media ask these questions or demand accountability of their leaders. [Cuomo] really has been ruling with an iron fist, and every time he does get asked a question, he blames everybody else except the person that signed that order," Janice said.

"In my mind, he's profiting off the over 30 thousand New Yorkers, including my in-laws, that died by publishing a book on 'leadership' of New York," she added. "His order has helped kill thousands of relatives of New York state. And this is not political, Glenn. This is not about Republican or Democrat. My in-laws were registered Democrats. This is not about politics. This is about accountability for something that went wrong, and it's because of your [Cuomo's] leadership that we're put into this situation."

As America grows divided and afraid to disagree with the Democrats' woke plan for America, Megyn Kelly is ready to fight back for the truth. For nearly two decades, she navigated the volatile and broken world of the media. But as America leans on independent voices more than ever, she's breaking new ground with "The Megyn Kelly Show."

She joined the latest Glenn Beck Podcast to break down what's coming next after the election: Black Lives Matter is mainstream, leftists are making lists of Trump supporters, and the Hunter Biden scandal is on the back burner.

Megyn and Glenn reminisce about their cable news days (including her infamous run-in with then-presidential candidate Donald Trump) and to look into the chaotic and shady world of journalism and the growing entitlement it's bred. For example, many conservatives have been shocked by how Fox News handled the election.

Megyn defended Fox News, saying she believes Fox News' mission "is a good one," but also didn't hold back on hosts like Neil Cavuto, who cut off a White House briefing to fact check it — something she never would have done, even while covering President Obama.

Megyn also shared this insightful takeaway from her time at NBC: "Jane Fonda was an ass."
