3 suspects taken into custody with connections to Boston bombing

Three new suspects were taken into custody this morning in connection with the Boston Marathon bombings, at least two of whom were college friends, and possible roommates, of Dzhorkhar Tsarnaev. TheBlaze.com is reporting that two of the suspects have been identified as Azamat Tazhayakov and Dias Kadyrbayev, who came to the U.S. from Kazakhstan. The Boston Globe is reporting that the third suspect is an American citizen named Robel Phillipos, 19.

The suspects were arrested for making false statements and conspiracy to obstruct justice. The Boston Globe is also reporting that the three suspects allegedly helped Tsarnaev after the April 15th attack that killed four and injured over 160.

Buck Sexton joined the radio program this morning with details and analysis of the arrests. After explaining to Glenn what TheBlaze had reported as of the time of this interview, Glenn had a few questions.

"What should we be looking for here?" Glenn asked.

Emphasizing that these were just his thoughts from his experience with the CIA and work in the NYPD, but Buck believes the two bombers are home-grown Islamic extremists with foreign links. The FBI and other agencies are now beginning to look further into the tack and facilitation of this attack.

"It seems very likely, just based upon the nature of the case right now, the number of people that the FBI and the other agencies are looking at that there was at least fore knowledge of this tack and facilitation," Buck explained.  "And that's different from the guys that were actively engaged in the plot, to -- they would be the cluster not the cell.  The cluster is the individuals around the cell.  At this point, Tamerlan and Dzhokhar are a two-man cell, but we're looking to see who is around them in the formation.  But the two people that the Russian authorities says that Tamerlan was in contact with in 2012, both were jihadists and both were killed by the Russians."

Glenn added that the two brothers also attended a mosque that was being funded by the Saudis — in particular, the Muslim Brotherhood. He wanted to know if it was too much of a stretch to believe their radicalization had roots at that mosque.

According to Buck, Glenn theory is actually pretty common precedent with these types of terrorists. Especially with individuals like Tamerlan, who was kicked out of his mosque not too long before the attack for an angry outburst against Martin Luther King, Jr.

"It's oftentimes some guy in the back of the mosque who is saying death to America, death to Israel.  He gets ushered out or people say don't say that and then a few others will say you know what?  I kind of like what you're budget down there, buddy and they start talking more and — sort of online jihadists activity, uploading videos see, communicating, try to reach out to — they love getting an email that says hey, tell me more about jihad," Buck noted. "They respond…even though you think that would be a good idea from a security perspective." 


Following the interview a few more details on the arrests were released.

Two suspects who have been taken into custody in connection to the attacks drove a car with a "Terrorista #1" custom license plate on the front.

According to the Associated Press, Tazhayakov and Kadybayev had been held in a county jail for over a week on allegation they violated their student visas while attending Dartmouth.

The Boston PD tweeted announced the arrests this morning via Twitter.

Glenn Beck: THIS is why Biden nominated Merrick Garland as attorney general

Many will remember President Biden's attorney general nominee Merrick Garland as the man Republicans refused to hold a Supreme Court confirmation hearing for back in 2016. So, was Garland's AG nomination just meant to be a slap in the face to Republicans? Glenn Beck thinks there's a lot more to it.

Given how focused Democrats are on rooting out vaguely defined "right-wing extremism," Garland's work in supervising the prosecution of the 1995 Oklahoma City bombing suspects gives us a hint, Glenn suggested on radio this week. He said he's "all for" stopping dangerous extremists, but couldn't help noticing how Garland isn't talking about any of the destruction that happened over the summer.

"I am all for justice. I am all for making sure we catch the bad guys, as long as the bad guys are not defined to be on only one side," Glenn said. "Merrick Garland said [Monday] that there was no comparison between what happened on January 6th and what happened over the summer. That is because the Washington elites see themselves as better than somebody who owns a taco stand. I don't. The Constitution doesn't. They are the same crime."

"All rich countries should move to 100% synthetic beef. You can get used to the taste difference," said holy anointed billionaire Bill Gates. Green activism has been around for decades. But what used to be wacky has now worked its way into the world's power structure. You must believe the science. You cannot question the science.

The Texas power failure provided America with a disturbing and deadly preview of the Great Reset. But Bill Gates, AOC, and other Democrats say this only proves we need to enforce MORE green policies.

Why are we letting criminals out of prison while putting pastors in? Pastor James Coates of Canada's GraceLife Church was recently fined, arrested, and put in maximum security prison for violating lockdown rules.

Rebel News founder Ezra Levant joined Glenn Beck on "Glenn TV" to discuss the story. Ezra said he's noticed a trend of government officials "picking on" Christians as "lockdownism" becomes almost a new kind of religion, and warned this might be just the start of more persecution to come.
