Rep. Gohmert drills FBI Director over incompetence in Boston Marathon investigation

A House Judiciary Committee hearing got a little heated on Thursday when Rep. Louie Gohmert (R-TX) battled FBI Director Robert Mueller over the efficiency of the FBI's investigation into the Boston Marathon bombers prior to the April 15th attack. Somehow, Mueller claims he was unaware that the mosque the Tsarnaev brothers attended, the Islamic Society of Boston, was founded by convicted supporter of terrorism Abdurahman Alamoudi.

Given the amount of data we now know the federal government has at its fingertips, how incompetent does one have to be to miss this type of detail?

Glenn explained that the reason the exchange began was because the FBI purged all of the information on all of the mosques that had been collected.

"We had collected a lot of data, because remember, data is important, right? We have to know who's in our country.  We have to listen to all of our phone calls, we have to do everything, because we have to know who's talking to who, but the Islamic counsels got together and they decided they wanted some information purged from the FBI records," Glenn explained. "Now, we don't know what has been purged and we don't even know who's requesting the purging. We just know that things have been blacked out, and Louie is saying to him, I want you to tell me why we can't tell the American people the names of the people that are requesting the purge of these documents, and you listen to them.  Why can't we tell the American people who these people are?  They are supposed public servants.  Shouldn't the American people know who's serving them to help them be more safe?"

Watch the exchange here:

Gohmert: "I want to go back to Boston.  You said things like how -- the FBI did an excellent job, a thorough job, don't know what else we could have done and according to the rugs, there's a great deal more that could have been done and when we find out about this sensitive operations review committee, and as this article points out, if it's true, it says that we don't know who the chairman and members are, sensitive operations review uh committee, who the staff -- that's kept secret.  The FBI never canvassed Boston mosques until four days after the April 15th attacks.  If the Russians tell you that someone has been radicalized and you go check and see the mosques that they went to, then you get the articles of incorporation, as I have, for the group that created the Boston mosque where these Tsarnaevs attended and you find the name al-Amoudi, which you remember, because this man who was so helpful to the Clinton Administration with so many big things, he gets arrested at Dulles Airport by the FBI, and he's now doing over 20 years for supporting terrorism.  This is the guy that started the mosque where your Tsarnaevs were attending, and you didn't even bother to check about the mosque.  And then when you had the picture, why didn't anyone go to the mosque and say who are these guys? Why was that not done, since such a thorough job was done?"

Mueller: "Your facts are not all-together…"

Gohmert: "I point out specifically — point out specifically, sir, if you are going to call me a liar, you need to point out specifically where any facts are wrong.

Mueller: "We went to the mosque."

Gohmert: "Prior to Boston?"

Mueller: "Prior to Boston.  We were talking to Imams several months beforehand as part of our outreach efforts."

"Outreach efforts?" Really?

"So in other words, we went to that mosque, we went to that mosque as part of our outreach.  We are reaching out to them, saying hey, how can we be partners," Glenn responded. "That's insane."

Gohmert: "Were you aware those mosques were started by Abdurahman Alamoudi?"

Mueller: "I answered the question, sir."

Gohmert: "You didn't answer the question, were you award they were started by al-Amoudi?"

"He wasn't everybody aware of it.  These are the people collecting all the information on you to keep you safe. They are purging all of the information on who the radical Islamists are.  They are purging it.  Why?  Because our government is on the wrong side. They have deemed that you are the enemy and radical Islam is fine, as long as it's Muslim brotherhood.  It is a very, very dangerous thing we are involved in now and they are taking away your keys to the locks, they are putting around your children's necks and wrists and arms and brain," Glenn added.

Rep. Louis Gohmert joined Glenn later in the program to discuss the exchange he had with the FBI Director who claimed the congressman had his facts wrong.

"Were not wrong," Rep. Gohmert quickly asserted. "Because I accused them of not doing research on the Tsarnaevs at the mosques where this were attending. And these mosques, from what I understand — and we want to drill down and find out more information — but there are other people that have been radicalized there. We need to find out and the FBI should have been curious. You know, how many people are getting radicalized at this mosque? And so when he says it was part of the "outreach" and frankly, he was — I couldn't hear him say it was our outreach efforts until afterwards, but if I had heard the outreach, I would have drilled him on that. That means my facts were right."

Gohmert continued to explain that the "outreach" comment tracks back to a prior hearing where Mueller testified and kept responding to people that the Muslim communities are exactly like every other community in America and every other religious community in the country.

"I said well, you said that, and didn't then you talked about your outreach effort to the Muslim community and you have a specific part of the FBI that does outreach for the Muslim community, so I said, how are the outreach efforts for the Baptists and the Jews and the Buddhist, how are those groups doing?" the Congressman continued.

"They think we are the enemies of this country and they are doing everything they can to support the radicals in this country. They have flipped everything upside down," Glenn added.

"It is upside down," Rep. Gohmert agreed. "You've talked about that so many times. That's exactly what happened.  And this mosque was started by the Islamic society of Boston…The Islamic society of Boston was started by Alamoudi — now doing over 20 years in prison because he was deporting terrorism."

"TheBlaze will do a week-long special this fall on Islamic radicals and we are going to name names and show all of this.  We have nailed it down and we are going to show it all.  The American people need to know -- not just the vague things like what we are talking about here," Glenn said. "You need to see how it has happened and who is involved in both parties."

"I heard you talk previously on this issue, I will be excited. I just think it's an incredible insight into really what's at stake here," Rep. Gohmert noted. "It is people's civil rights and they are being eroded and everything seems to be upside down, and so I think that's a fantastic approach, because it gets right to the truth."

"Well, Louie, you have 70 people in Washington that are not willing to sit down on this and we are going to watch your back, at least I am," Glenn responded.  "I begged for you guys to do it and now you are doing it."

Presidential candidate Sen. Bernie Sanders (I-Vt.) may say he's all about advocating for the common good, but during his more than 30 years in "public service," the socialist senator has been more adept at promoting his own bottom line.

Investigative journalist and best-selling author, Peter Schweizer, joined Glenn Beck in the studio Friday to discuss his new book, "Profiles in Corruption: Abuse of Power by America's Political Elite," and to break downs how Sanders has become the very model of the corrupt socialist leader who becomes wealthy at the expense of the citizens they are elected to serve.

"It's a major problem for Bernie Sanders," Schweizer said. "He's turned socialism into a profession that has generated a lot of money to his family."

"Isn't that what always happens?" Glenn asked. "I mean, everybody in charge of a socialist country, they walk away with billions, in some cases, and the people are left starving."

"Yes, that's exactly right," agreed Schweizer. "It is a racket for Bernie Sanders. And the sort of austere image that he presents —kind of the John the Baptist of the progressive movement — it's simply not true."

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:
