How is Fox News' Bret Baier covering the Saudi national story?

TheBlaze has spent the last week exposing the truth behind the Saudi national who was initially questioned and considered a suspect in the Boston Marathon bombing before being downgraded to merely a witness.

People like Department of Homeland Security Secretary Janet Napolitano have been quick to discredit TheBlaze’s reporting, while several senators have put their weight behind the story. The media, for its part, has been relatively silent. But last night, Fox News’ Bret Baier addressed the ever-growing controversy in his “The Daily Bret” video blog post.

“I want to go to a deal from Bret Baier,” Glenn said on radio this morning. “Bret Baier yesterday – and this is being used to discredit us… he is saying that the Department of Homeland Security told him that this is all wrong. Well, that's pretty important information I would think that would need to be on the show. But he put it on his blog, and I want you to listen to this story, and listen with more than your ears and listen to – something just doesn't seem like Bret's married into this.”

BAIER: Janet Napolitano, the Security of Homeland Security just said today that he [Abdul Rahman Ali Alharbi] really was never a person of interest. But out of an abundance of caution and out of diligence according to these U.S. officials, federal authorities at that time, because they wanted to question him, added him to the no fly list. Now, this is key: When anyone inside the U.S. with a U.S. visa is added to the no fly list, the process, the process is started. And I stress process here, to revoke visa. And that's automatically begun according to U.S. officials. The 212 is a national security indication and anyone looking at this would say this is a bad guy. This means they had a lot of stuff on this guy. The U.S. officials we're talking to say this document was simply triggered by them putting him on the no fly list when they went to talk to him.

“Stop,” Glenn said. “Bret's smarter than this. If he wasn't, he should put this on his real show. But Bret is smarter than this… you'll notice here that Bret is saying ‘our sources at Homeland Security.’ Well, I'm sure that if I called the newsroom at, you know, or the press room at Homeland Security, they would tell me the same thing. I'm going to give Bret the benefit of the doubt because I don't know – it’s not like we hang out with each other, but I have respect for Bret and I have respect for his team and I know, I just, I'm going to give him the benefit of the doubt that he's on it. What pressure is being applied I have – one can only guess. But I appreciate the fact that he is putting this on his blog. Be careful who you trust and be careful who you throw under the bus. You're not necessarily always getting the full story. And this is going to take an orchestra to be able to navigate through.”

Glenn may have been willing to give Bret the benefit of the doubt, but he had a message for all the journalists out there who are ignoring or discrediting this story.

“Now, for those journalists elsewhere, I'm not sure what your story is. I don't think you have one. You might want to go back to work,” Glenn said.

And for those of you sitting at home wanting to make sure this story gets its due diligence, Glenn shared this:

“Call your congressmen now and tell them, look at the story at TheBlaze. If they think it's a conspiracy theory, explain away what's being posted now at TheBlaze,” he said. “And by the way, there's much, much more where that comes from. Tell your congressmen you'd like to know exactly where this gentleman is. I warn you, you're not going to like the answer. But you'd like to know exactly where this man who is armed and dangerous and how he got into this country without being vetted at all with special access. If he has this special access, you're telling me when they came to him that they had no idea who he was? That seems awfully strange. Seems like someone might be lying.”

Bill O'Reilly joined the "Glenn Beck Radio Program" on Friday for his weekly take on the 2020 presidential race.

O'Reilly emphasized what a dangerous candidate socialist Sen. Bernie Sanders (I-Vt.) really is, and how the media is working to mislead voters by depicting other Democratic candidates, such as former South Bend, Indiana, Mayor Pete Buttigieg, as "moderate."

"The Democratic Party has been hijacked -- and this is no breaking news -- by the progressive left. Which is now being enabled by the national media," said O'Reilly.

"Bernie Sanders is a dangerous man. In any sane time, media time, that would be clear to everybody. But it's not," he added. "It's like, 'Oh, there's uncle Bernie and he just wants to give stuff away. What a great guy.' [He's] not a great guy, all right? He's a totalitarian. He'll take your freedom, in every area, away. Every area. There isn't one area, that Bernie Sanders wouldn't intrude upon, in your personal freedom. Yet, that's not reported. You don't know it unless you pay attention. It's all a bunch of dishonest blather that has obliterated the so-called moderate Democrat. And there are millions of those people. They don't know what to do because they have no voice in the media."

Glenn pointed out that the media has been "trying to make Pete Buttigieg into a moderate" ever since his strong showing in the Iowa caucuses last week.

"So, Pete Buttigieg: Harvard grad. Rhodes Scholar. Brilliant man, he is brilliant. Great speaker. Almost as good as Beck and I. Not quite, but almost," O'Reilly said. "He's only 38, all right? So, the guy goes out and runs for president after being the mayor of South Bend, Indiana, for eight years, and almost destroying that city. The city is in chaos, yet he's re-elected with 80% of the vote the second time. That's what a good BS'er Pete Buttigieg is.

The two went on to break down Buttegieg's radical policy plans on immigration, abortion, gun control, and more.

On the radio program Thursday, Glenn Beck and his chief researcher, Jason Buttrill, have uncovered new evidence that suggests the coronavirus death toll numbers coming from China are grossly inaccurate.

After vetting several deep-fake videos circulating on social media, Jason unearthed shocking whistleblower-videos released by citizens of the communist state that show entire warehouses filled with body bags, along with other atrocities.

Jason and Glenn break down the real numbers and discuss the possibilities of the outbreak coming to America. Watch the video below for more details:

Former South Bend, Indiana, Mayor Pete Buttigieg has surged in the polls in the past month.

With former Vice President Joe Biden dropping below far-left presidential candidates such as the unapologetically socialist Sen. Bernie Sanders (Vt.), and the almost equally extremist Sen. Elizabeth Warren (Mass), Democratic voters seeking a more moderate alternative are setting their sights on Mayor Pete.

But are Buttigieg's policies actually moderate? Not even close, Glenn Beck said Thursday on the radio program.

"[Pete Buttigieg] wants people to see him as a moderate. The mayor of a Midwest city in a red state ... and he's going for the middle, even though he is not a moderate candidate in any way," said Glenn.

Here are just a few example of where Buttigieg stands on the issues:

  • Supports late-term, partial-birth abortion
  • Eliminate the Electoral College
  • Buyback program for assault weapons
  • Raise the federal minimum wage to $15/hour
  • Expand Medicare
  • Decriminalize illegal immigration
  • Pay for infrastructure through changing taxes on corporations, the wealthy
  • Study reparations
  • Legalize marijuana
  • Increase existing taxes on upper-income Americans
  • Cancel some student debt
  • Don't use tariffs to pressure countries

An official at the World Health Organization (WHO), the United Nations' health agency, has issued a warning, calling the coronavirus "the worst enemy you can imagine" and more of a threat than "any terrorist attack," during a media briefing on Tuesday.

Dr. Tedros Adhanom Ghebreyesus, WHO's director general, said that a vaccine for the coronavirus will likely take 18 months to develop. The virus has reportedly killed hundreds and infected tens of thousands of people, primarily in China.

"To be honest, a virus is more powerful in creating political, social and economic upheaval than any terrorist attack. It's the worst enemy you can imagine," added Ghebreyesus.

On the radio program Wednesday, Glenn Beck noted that the same agency in charge of developing this life-saving vaccine, has taken the time to officially change the disease's name to COVID-19, citing the concern of "stigmatizing" any specific geographical location, individual, or group of people.
