Why won’t the media talk about Saudi national?

In the wake of the Boston Marathon bombing the media flushed its credibility down the toilet when it valued breaking information first over reporting the facts. Remember CNN’s John King proclaiming a ‘dark skinned’ man had been arrested? Or the misinformation about the number of people killed and injured?

The federal government, meanwhile, took political correctness to a whole new level – initially refraining from calling the attack ‘terrorism’ and refusing to acknowledge the Tsarnaev brothers’ Muslim ties.

The incompetence has spilled over into week two of the investigation. Since TheBlaze broke the story of the Saudi national, Abdul Rahman Ali Alharbi, who was initially considered a ‘person of interest’ in the Marathon bombing investigation before later being downgraded to merely a ‘witness,’ the media has been silent, while the government has been in denial.

As TheBlaze reported, Department of Homeland Security Secretary Janet Napolitano finally admitted (kind of) the Saudi was in fact placed on a watch list, but her statement was inconsistent at best:

NAPOLITANO: He was not on a watch list. 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 watch list, and then when it was quickly determined he had nothing to do with the bombing, the watch listing status was removed.

“We have like 10 sources on this,” Glenn said on radio this morning of TheBlaze’s investigation.

“It is amazing,” Pat added. “All of the media sources who just blindly believe what Janet Napolitano has said, when what Janet Napolitano has said has changed almost every day.”

“Journalists, you shouldn’t trust the Bush Administration, and you shouldn’t trust this guy’s administration. You shouldn’t trust them,” Glenn said. “That doesn’t mean you don’t go after them all the time. It means that you approach everything with a healthy does of skepticism.”

The art of investigative reporting has clearly been lost, if mainstream news outlets are now willing to take the government at its word on cases as sensitive as this.

“They just keep saying, ‘Well, I called the government and they said they just totally screwed up and put a random Saudi on the watch list. Oops,’” Stu joked.

And if the government really is just putting random Saudi Arabians on terror watch lists because they are Saudi Arabian and, therefore, a threat, the government is admitting racism!

“We’re supposed to be like, ‘Oh, they’re just racist. Put all the Saudis on the watch list. It’s all right. There’s nothing there. They just put random Saudis on the terror list whenever they interview them,’” Stu said.

“We pointed that out before. Nobody on the right is even taking this approach. Humiliate them for their racism. They don’t want to be called racist, so go for it,” Glenn explained. “If that’s their answer, if you believe what they are saying, then that’s racist.”

Glenn went on to explain that he knows many respected journalists at the major networks who put together reports on this story, only to be told that their stories would not be published or brought to air.

“What kills me is that they are now trying to make this into a conspiracy theory,” Glenn said. “People are like, ‘He has no facts.’ No, I have the documentation. I have the sources. We have as much as Woodward and Bernstein had. We have the sources.”

“Its pretty amazing how much they’ll dismiss,” Pat responded.

“In the end you’ll destroy yourselves. I just hope you don’t destroy our country at the same time,” Glenn said of the media. “We are in it for America. Now is there a single person out there that is also in it for America? ‘Well, we called the DHS already. The Department of Homeland Security said there is nothing to worry about.’ Oh, okay, whoo. You guys should get a nap in. That sounds like a tough day of investigative reporting.”

An Afghan interpreter who helped save then-Sen. Joe Biden's life in 2008 was among those stranded in Afghanistan after Biden's troop withdrawal. He has now escaped the country with his family, but not with President Biden's help.

Thanks to private organizations, including The Nazarene Fund, the interpreter and his family have now been rescued.

A shocking new report by The Daily Wire reveals that the furious father whose arrest at a school board meeting likely sparked the call for the FBI to investigate anti-CRT parents like domestic terrorists was furious for good reasons: The Loudoun County School Board allegedly tried to cover up his daughter's rape.

Rep. Chris Stewart (R-Utah) joined Glenn Beck on the radio program Tuesday to discuss the incident and explain why he joined 60 lawmakers in a letter to Attorney General Merrick Garland demanding answers for why the FBI is targeting parents.

"We want to know ... what kind of coordination took place between the White House, activist groups and teachers unions, and the Department of Justice," Stewart told Glenn. "Because we have evidence that there was [coordination] and, in fact, that the White House are the ones who initiated this. They asked for these activist groups to write this inflammatory letter to the Department of Justice saying they were 'intimidated' and that they 'felt threatened', giving the Department of Justice Attorney General Garland, the excuse to say, 'Okay, well, we have to respond'."

Stewart went on to say he believes the federal government would only involve the FBI in such an issue if its purpose is to silence and intimidate parents concerned about the "poison" being taught to their kids in school. So, what can he and the other representatives who disagree with the Biden administration's overreach of power do to stop it?

Taiwan's Foreign Minister Joseph Wu is now warning that his nation is preparing for war with China after Beijing flew a record number of warplanes over Taiwanese territory. Wu reached out to another country for help, but it wasn't the United States.

In a video, Wu urged Australia to help prepare for a possible invasion, but gave the U.S. no mention.

"The defense of Taiwan is in our own hands, and we are absolutely committed to that. And if China is going to launch a war against Taiwan, we will fight until the end. And that is our commitment. And, of course, during this period of time, we would like to exchange with other countries for security cooperation," Wu said on ABC News In-depth's China Tonight program. "We would like to engage in security or intelligence exchanges with other like-minded partners, Australia included, so that Taiwan is better prepared to deal with the war situation. And so far, our relations with Australia is very good. And that is what we appreciate it for."

On "The Glenn Beck Program," Glenn, Pat Gray, and Stu Burguiere discussed whether or not America would do anything during such a conflict — because it sure seems like President Joe Biden is more focused on working with China to fight climate change. Plus, why did China just cut off all cryptocurrency?

On "Glenn TV" tonight, Glenn Beck heads to the chalkboard to reveal how the fundamental transformation of America has already begun by turning the Declaration of Independence upside down.

If Donald Trump was a dictator, then what do we call President Biden? In Biden's first nine months in office, he has already issued 64 executive orders – that's more than Trump, Obama, W. Bush, Clinton, Bush, and Reagan each issued in their entire first years in office.

You never hear the Left talk about the Declaration of Independence, the Constitution, or the Bill of Rights any more, unless it's to "reimagine" the Constitution or slap a "harmful content" warning on our founding documents. Seriously. The National Archives said while its website label wasn't targeting the Constitution specifically, "some of the materials presented here may reflect outdated, biased, offensive, and possibly violent views and opinions." The Left finds basic, guaranteed rights so offensive they now spend all of their time on workarounds to deal with America's annoying founding documents.

Watch the full episode of "Glenn TV" below to see Glenn outline the aggressive unconstitutional abuses "King Biden" is jamming down our throats and teaches Americans how we can defend against presidential tyranny.
