UPDATED: New report says Saudi Arabia warned U.S. of Tsarnaev brothers

UPDATE: TheBlaze is now reporting the Saudi Arabian government has formally denied sharing any information, written or otherwise, with the United States regarding Tamerlan Tsarnaev. In a statement, the Saudi embassy said:

“The Saudi government had no prior information about the Boston bombers. Therefore, it is not true that any information, written or otherwise, was passed to the U.S. Department of Homeland Security (DHS) or any other US agency in this regard. The Saudi government also does not have any record of any application by Tamerlan Tsarnaev for any visa to Saudi Arabia.”

The U.S. Department of Homeland Security and the White House had already denied receiving any information regarding Tsarnaev or the Boston Marathon bombing from the Saudi government.

You can read the original story below.

We already know that Russia tried to warn us (on multiple occasions) of the potential radicalization of the Tsarnaev brothers. And this morning we found out Saudi Arabia may also have tried to alert the U.S. government to the national security threat the older brother, Tamerlan, posed.

TheBlaze.com reported:

As news about the Tsarnaev brothers continues to emerge, it seems Russia may not have been the only foreign nation to warn the United States that the older brother, Tamerlan, was a potential security risk. A senior Saudi government official told Daily Mail that the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia sent a written warning to the U.S. Department of Homeland Security in 2012. According to the source, the letter was pertaining to Tsarnaev and potential terror threats.

The report was allegedly “very specific” and warned the U.S. government that “something was going to happen in a major U.S. city.”

The Department of Homeland Security and the White House have both categorically denied ever having seen or received such a report from the Saudi Arabians.

“It's just another exciting day with some developments that definitely did not happen with Saudi Arabia. Pay no attention to Saudi Arabia, they are a dear, dear, close wonderful, almost like family kind of relationship country to us,” Glenn said sarcastically to open the radio show this morning.

“So somehow or another, Saudi Arabia knew about this guy, but we didn't. We had no idea,” he continued. “The Saudi warning was separate from the multiple red flags raised by the Russians. And this one was based on human intelligence developed independently by Saudi Arabia in Yemen. Citing security concerns, the Saudi government also denied entry of the elder Tsarnaev brother when he hoped to make a pilgrimage to Mecca.”

We can all remember the days following the Boston Marathon bombing, when the FBI went on TV with photos of Tamerlan and Dzokar Tsarnaev practically begging the public to help them identify the brothers. But we have since learned we had warning from the Russians and Saudi Arabians, in addition to the FBI having personally looked into Tamerlan in 2011, and yet we still are led to believe the FBI had no idea who these men were.

“Is anybody else insulted by this,” Glenn asked.

The answer, sadly, seems to be NO. “It doesn't make any sense. You're being lied to from top to bottom,” Glenn said.

For those Back to the Future fans out there, Glenn compared this moment to the steam train in Back to the Future Part III. “Remember when they get on the steam train,” he asked. “And they have to hit these certain marks and have to be going a certain speed, otherwise, the train tracks end and the train goes off and they don't go back to the year 1985? That's kind of like where we are now.”

Unfortunately, when our train goes off the bridge, the implications are far worse than zooming back to 1985. “We end up in the canyon,” Glenn said. “We don't zoom back to 1985, even though that would be pretty sweet.  Ronald Reagan would still be president. Instead, we just go off into the canyon.”

“But there is a mile marker that we have hit,” he concluded. “And it's not only just the Saudi Arabians and our denial and our press.”

After imprisoning a pastor for refusing to follow COVID-19 restrictions, Canadian officials barricaded his church. And when some church members retaliated by tearing down part of the fence, Canadian Mounties arrived in riot gear.

Rebel News Founder Ezra Levant joined Glenn Beck on the radio program to give his insight on the crazy situation. He described the new, armed police presence surrounding GraceLife Church in Edmonton, Alberta, and how it not only encouraged hundreds of protesters to stand with the church in support but forced congregation members underground to worship as well.

What's happening is eerily similar to what occurs everyday in China, Levant says, and it must stop. Who would have thought this type of tyranny would be so close to home?

Watch the video below to hear Ezra describe the religious persecution taking place in Canada.

Enough prayers? Why is supposed Catholic Joe Biden suggesting that Congress ought to stop praying for after someone commits acts of gun violence?

On Friday, Stu Burguiere and Pat Gray filled in for Glenn and discussed President Joe Biden's remarks during his speech on gun control. "Enough prayers. Time for some action," Biden said. Stu and Pat were surprised how dismissive Biden appeared to be on the idea of prayer.

Just days after Canadian pastor James Coates was released from prison for refusing to bow to COVID-19 lockdown restrictions, several police officers showed up at another church to ensure restrictions were being followed. But Polish pastor Artur Pawlowski of the Cave of Adullam Church in Alberta, Canada, knew his rights, telling the cops not to come back until they had a warrant in hand.

Filling in for Glenn Beck on the radio program this week, Pat Gray and Stu Burguiere played a video of the interaction.

"Please get out. Please get out of this property immediately. Get out!" Pawlowski can be heard yelling at the six officers who entered his church.

"Out! Out! Out! Get out of this property immediately until you come back with a warrant," he continued. "Go out and don't come back. I don't want to talk to you. You Nazis, Gestapo is not allowed here! ... Nazis are not welcome here! Do not come back you Nazi psychopaths. Unbelievable sick, evil people. Intimidating people in a church during the Passover! You Gestapo, Nazi, communist fascists! Don't you dare come back here!"

One of the most dangerous existential threats to the United States is Critical Race Theory, or CRT. As Glenn Beck has exposed over the past year, CRT is gaining momentum and has been preached in our universities for a while now.

Then last August, leaked documents revealed that Marxism, activist ideology of Black Lives Matter, is making its way into grade school classrooms across the country. And since then, things have only gotten more intense.

On next week's Wednesday night special, Glenn will expose the new ways progressives are systematically indoctrinating our kids and culture with this dangerous ideology. But first, it's crucial that you know what your kids may already be learning.

"What I'm about to show you is just the beginning," Glenn said, introducing the leaked documents.

"I found it shocking that Black Lives Matter supporters have developed lesson plans that start from preschool all the way up to the 12th grade," he continued. "Do you know the money it would take to tailor things ... and get it out to the schools and the unions for each age, to be able to brainwash the kids on Marxism and how to destroy capitalism by using race, sexual orientation, and gender?

"Our children don't stand a chance," Glenn added later. "They're not being taught anything except how to be radical activists. What the hell has happened?"
