Latest (and very revealing) details of Ahmed and his ‘clock’

On radio Tuesday, Glenn shared an update on the situation with the student in Irving, Texas who was arrested for bringing a supposed clock to school.

Lawrence Jones of the Dana show on TheBlaze TV, discussed the very latest details, and they were nothing short of shocking.

Take a listen below. Also, watch Glenn discuss the situation with the mayor of Irving and a security expert here.

Below is a rush transcript of this segment, it might contain errors.

GLENN: So here's -- let me start with the update. We all know the story now of the kid that was here in Las Colinas, Texas, or Irving, Texas, where our studios are located. This is the most diverse ZIP code in America, and they don't have any problems. We just don't have any problems. Everyone gets along. It's a great town. It's a great down.

This school, which is only 6 percent Caucasian, apparently is the most racist place in the world. Because if you're a Muslim, you're in trouble. Now, I've told you now for the last year, there's a problem with the Muslim community here in Irving, Texas. There is -- and I know this -- okay, so be it, if there's a war, there's a war over words, so be it. There is a problem here in Irving, Texas, and there is a concerted effort to move to Sharia law or at least Sharia compliant here in Irving, Texas. And the mayor of Irving, Texas, is not for that. The citizens of Irving, Texas, are not for that. The Muslims are.

Well, I'm sorry. If you want Sharia law, go live in an Islamic State. You can do that. You don't live here in the United States. We don't have any other law besides American law, period.

Now, I've said this for a while, this mayor is just getting beaten down all the time. She's a wonderful, wonderful mayor. I saw a -- who is the guy who is the TV guy who has been helping us -- or we've been helping him with the VA

PAT: Montel Williams.

GLENN: Did you see what Montel Williams just tweeted?

PAT: No.

GLENN: Yeah, he tweeted yesterday afternoon: Glenn Beck, you know, I know -- I love you and we get along and there's a lot we can work on, but your mayor of Irving is a bigot.

PAT: No.

GLENN: I want Montel Williams. I want you to schedule Montel Williams on the program. You go ahead. I want to know, has he ever met her? Has he ever talked to her? Has he ever been down here? You go ahead and spend some time in our community and see what's going on, and then I want you to go talk to the guys that we did at the mosques, where they're talking about, "Hey, you know, everybody agrees. I mean, it's not just Islam. Everybody agrees. You steal something, you cut the hand off." No, I'm sorry, that's not what we do in the United States, period.

Now, let me give you a couple of updates and Lawrence Jones will join us. First, first update, the activist father of this kid who took a clock from Radio Shack, took it out of its casing, then put it in a briefcase, May made it so it counts down, not up, brought it to school. As we told you yesterday, it was not a science fair, it was not a science project. He was not asked to make it. There was no reason to make it. He brought it to one of his teachers. The teacher did not say, "Oh, my gosh, Johnny, that's such a great clock." The teacher saw it and he said, "What are you doing, bringing this to school? This is wholly inappropriate. Go put that in your locker and never bring it out again."

He didn't. He brings it to another class, and it starts to count down. The teacher is freaking out, like, "What is that?" He's brought into the principal's office. I can't tell you the details of the principal's office because the family will not agree to let the details be released because he's a minor.

Now, let me tell you what I can share with you, this broke yesterday. His activist father, who, by the way, ran for president of the Sudan twice. He is a guy who is in with CAIR and the Muslim Brotherhood. He is an activist. His activist father has pulled him and his two siblings out of the school here in Irving, Texas.

Then he's taking his son and his family to meet with dignitaries at the UN as they're starting to raise the Palestinian flag. You know that's happening in the next ten days. So this kid who was just an amazing scientist who went to Radio Shack, took a clock apart, put it in a briefcase, he's now meeting with the dignitaries at the UN. That's not all.

Then he's going to take his pilgrimage with his family to Mecca in Saudi Arabia. Once they've walked around the cube, then they're getting on a plane and they're flying directly to the White House where they will sit down and meet with President Obama. Now, you tell me what the hell this story is all about.

You know, I saw a great -- who was it that just posted -- I think it was Mark Levin. I saw a post from him. He said, "You know, the president doesn't want to -- we have a problem figuring out if the president is Christian or not. There's a really easy way for the president to clear this up. Stop behaving in a non-Christian way. Start behaving like a Christian."

PAT: I think that's Erick Erickson from Red State.

GLENN: Erick Erickson. It's exactly right. Start behaving like a Christian. I don't understand this president. I've talked to the mayor of Irving. We've talked to the city council of Irving. We have talked to the police in Irving. We have talked to the school board in Irving. The president has not reached out, not one time, to get the other side of the story. Not once. He has reached out to CAIR and to the Muslim Brotherhood, but not once to the people here in Irving, Texas. So who are you serving, Mr. President? Who is it you are serving? This is a very bad situation.

Now, Lawrence, he came into the hallway -- and I don't want to even characterize anything, Lawrence, because I don't know what you can say or you can't say because some of this stuff, you know, just can't be said because of lawsuits. Quite honestly, I'd like somebody to be sued in this. I wish the family would sue the city because then a discovery period would happen and you would have to release all of the details. So what do you have on this story?

LAWRENCE: So there are a couple key players in this, and I know Beth really well, the mayor of Irving. I know people in the leadership of the school district, all the way up to the school board. And there's certain things they can't say, legally, and then there's certain things that they want to say and they can say legally, but they'll be attacked for.

GLENN: Yes.

LAWRENCE: So some of the information, they've known about this kid for a while. They've known about his father. As you can see in the photos and some of the photo ops of CAIR being in the photo with them, they've been working together for years.

GLENN: Well, before the school board had a chance to respond. Think of this. The school board found out about it the very next day they reach out to the family and they're trying to have a meeting, they want to arrange a meeting. They're meeting already with CAIR. So if you're really sincere about something, you will reach out to the school board first and say, "Hey, what is the deal?" They went right directly to CAIR.

LAWRENCE: Exactly. Because the city has no authority over the school -- in Texas, the school district is the government embodied. They have the authority to make something happen. They were upset with the school district because the school district refused to issue an apology. And the reason why they decided to do this, they believe their law enforcement and their director of security did the right thing. They followed protocol.

GLENN: I agree.

LAWRENCE: That's the first thing. The second thing, when Ali, an imam, got up there and they talked about the suitcase. All right, there's two things that you have to pay attention to. He said that I used wires instead of a lock because I did not want it to be suspicious. This is what the kid is saying.

GLENN: So he knew that somebody would --

LAWRENCE: Now, why in the world would a child say something is suspicious if it's totally innocent.

GLENN: Well, here's the thing, and I said this I think yesterday. And I think this is worth repeating. If I'm -- if I'm Muslim, I know what's happening in the world. I know how we're perceived.

LAWRENCE: Not a doubt.

GLENN: Okay. I'm not not self-aware. For instance, I'm a recovering alcoholic. When I go to a cocktail party or something and we're in a room where there's being liquor served, I never stand with a glass of ice water or anything else. I never ask for a soda. I always ask for a bottle of water. And if there's not a bottle of water, I don't drink anything while I'm standing there because I don't want a picture taken of me with something that could be conceived or perceived as a drink. Okay?

So I know people are judging me and everything else. So you're just uber aware. You can't tell me that a dad who is an activist has his son and brings -- let's just say he didn't even know. His son makes a clock, a countdown clock, puts it in with a bunch of wires, brings it to school, gets in trouble. And you can't tell me that a responsible American doesn't go -- and a responsible Muslim that is not an Islamist, doesn't go to his son at the police department and say, "What the hell did you just do? What did you just do? Do you know what people say about us? People already think that we're terrorists and everything else, and you're just adding to that? You apologize. You apologize."

That's the conversation I would have with my son. If my son went in -- I'm a Mormon. If my son went in and he was just doing stereotypical things that made Mormons look bad. We don't believe in polygamy. But let's just say he was handing out polygamies-for-everybody booklets, and he was for some reason arrested. I would go and say, "Do you realize what you're doing? Do you realize how much you're hurting our faith? You've just played into every stereotype, and you've given them reason to suspect. What are you doing, son?"

LAWRENCE: The reason is because they wanted reason to suspect. This was all calculated.

GLENN: Yes, it was.

LAWRENCE: This was all part of the plan, down to CAIR. And this lady, who is the executive director of CAIR is not an innocent body.

GLENN: Okay. So how is she involved with this?

LAWRENCE: Now, she's the person that's handling all the PR. She's the one who is staging all the media events. Now, we remember. Some of our Dana viewers may remember this lady. Because I did a special report on this. Now, before they attacked the Garland Special Event Center, there was an event there staying with the prophet, right after the attacks happened in France. And then Pamela Geller had this event in response to that event.

Now, who was there? Siraj Wahhaj, who was in New York who was an unindicted coconspirator of the trade center bombings. All right. Who was the head of PR doing that event? This lady right here.

GLENN: And she's the one now standing with this family.

LAWRENCE: Exactly. So we wanted to go into that event. We put our media credentials in right when they released it. And they were at first going to let us in. We get to the door, she says, "The information that we're discussing here is too sensitive."

GLENN: And go so you can't go in.

LAWRENCE: So we can't go in. So I pressed her on it. We want to tell people that if you guys are really peaceful, then let the public see what you guys are about. She said, "Okay, we'll let you come in for the first 20 minutes." But she would not let us stay when the speaker, the unindicted coconspirator, Siraj Wahhaj, stood up on the stage. Now, some people may say, "Oh, that doesn't matter." No, these people are connected. And if we're too ignorant to see all the writing on the wall, then we deserve another attack.

GLENN: How do you know -- I mean, do you have any information on this family being connected to her and to CAIR prior to this?

LAWRENCE: Oh, yeah. There are the pictures that we didn't have enough time to put them on the screen. But there's pictures of them health care connected. She's working on the council.

GLENN: I've seen a picture. Maybe they're in a car.

LAWRENCE: Yeah, they're in a car. She's driving the car.

GLENN: And the clock builder is in the back?

LAWRENCE: With her. She's driving the car. Her and the dad are friends. Okay. They've worked together. You've seen them before in press conference together. When different phobias, they say, come up.

GLENN: Okay. Lawrence, will you do me a favor, will you continue to follow this story? Because there are a lot of people that have information and want to talk.

LAWRENCE: Yeah. They're afraid. They're afraid. I've talked to leaders in the board. People that are in leadership that say they cannot say this. They just cannot.

GLENN: Right. Thank you very much, Lawrence. I appreciate it. I will tell you this, that I -- two years ago somebody came to me in my own company, one of the accountants, and said, "You're going to go broke, and you're going to go broke because of security."

And I pay seven figures for my security for me and my family, but it is worth it. I would rather have my family living under a bridge and be alive in the end than have something stupid happen. Now, I'm a guy who can afford this, barely. But I can afford this. People on the school board can't afford this. People in the mayor's office can't afford this. The police chief can't afford this. The average person who stands up in a city council or a board of education hearing can't afford this. We have to start standing together and standing for common sense because I'm telling you, read it in the book. It Is About Islam. There is a very well coordinated plan with the Muslim Brotherhood. That is the connection to CAIR. And they first anesthetize all of us and get us all to roll over. It is first a cultural jihad, and then it is a violent jihad.

In the book, it spells it out, all of their steps, according to the Muslim Brotherhood. All of the things they have to do. We're down to the last one. And the last one is violent jihad. I'm not saying necessarily this particular. But it fits in to their -- their pattern and their MO. This is the last kind of warnings that you will have trying to get you to just roll over, roll over, roll over, before it becomes violent. We must stand together and stand together -- not in hatred. Because that's not who we are. But in common sense and common ground.

Soros is trying to elect MORE TEXAS RINOs. Here's how YOU can stop him.

David McNew / Staff | Getty Images

Texas is under threat of a George Soros-backed takeover.

Soros-funded RINO judges have been elected in some of the highest courts in Texas. These judges implemented restrictions that have blocked nearly a thousand cases of voter fraud from being investigated or prosecuted from across the state. These new restrictions are similar to ones in place in states like George, Arizona, and Wisconsin, leaving Texas more susceptible to election corruption than ever. If Texas falls to corruption, America will lose its largest bastion of conservative electoral power in the nation. Without Texas, Republicans WILL NOT be able to win national elections and liberal corruption will go unchecked across the country.

Fortunately, there is a way to stop this: YOU.

If you live in Texas you have a chance to stand up against corruption and to fight back! Starting Tuesday, February 20th, early voting for the primaries begins, where three of these judges are up for election. Go out and vote. If the right people are voted in, there's a good chance the restrictions will be lifted and election fraud can once again be prosecuted.

But remember, you can't just go in and vote for anyone who has an "R" next to their name. Sorors knows that a registered Democrat would never stand a chance in Texas, so his lackeys register as Republicans and ride the little "R" right into office. So who do you vote for?

Fortunately, Glenn had Texas Attorney General Ken Paxton on his show today and Ken gave us his list of judges that he vouches for. His list is as follows:

  • Gina Parker
  • Lee Finley
  • David Schenck
The Primary Election runs from February 20th to March 5th. This is your chance to get out there and make a difference. It might be the most important election you ever participate in. If you need to know where your nearest polling location is, or any other information regarding the election, you can go to votetexas.gov to find out more.
It's time to stand up.

Hypocrisy EXPOSED: The 'Amazon Files' and what WE are doing about it

Who is really banning books?

For years now, Conservatives have been taking flak from the left for supposed "book bans." The left likes to compare these "bans" to Nazi book burnings, accusing the right of sweeping authoritarian decrees designed to suppress information. In reality, this is a movement largely motivated by parents, who want to remove inappropriate books from children's libraries.

But if you want to discuss authoritarian book bans, look no further than the White House. As Glenn recently covered, the Biden administration has been pressuring the world's largest bookseller, Amazon, into suppressing books they disagree with.

On February 5th, 2024, Ohio Representative Jim Jordan released a slew of subpoenaed documents that exposed pressure placed on Amazon by the Biden Administration. The documents, which Jordan dubbed "The Amazon Files" after Elon Musk's "The Twitter Files," revealed an email conversation between Andrew Slavitt, a former White House senior adviser, and Amazon employees. In these emails, Slavitt complained that the top search results for books on "vaccines" were "concerning" and then requested that Amazon intervene. Amazon initially refused, not out of some altruistic concern for the free exchange of information. They thought any action taken would be "too visible" and would further exasperate the “Harry/Sally narrative,” referring to the outrage that followed Amazon's removal of Ryan T. Anderson’s book When Harry Became Sally.

Despite this initial refusal, Amazon agreed to meet with the White House a few days later. The number one item on their agenda was removing books from the website. An Amazon employee even admitted that the reason they even took this meeting was due to the pressure being placed on them by the Biden Administration.

What was the result of this meeting? Amazon caved. They began to implement ways of limiting the outreach of books that challenged the mainstream vaccine narrative and other books the White House might not like.

The White House was caught red-handed pressuring the world's largest bookseller to restrict the sale of books they consider in opposition to their narrative, and they have the gall to accuse conservatives of information suppression. This is just ONE of many actions committed by the Biden Administration that are more characteristic of a dictator than a president.

What can you do about it? Fortunately, you are not dependent on Amazon and its corrupted algorithm to help you find books.

10 times Biden has acted like a DICTATOR

The left-wing media's most recent tirade is accusing Trump of being a dictator. But, as Glenn said, "Everything they're accusing us of, they're doing."

Since day one, the Biden administration has overstepped the bounds placed on the executive branch set by the Constitution. In Glenn's most recent TV Special, he examined ten times Biden acted like a dictator, NOT a president. Here are 10 of Biden's Dictator Moves, and click HERE to get ALL of the research that went into this week's Glenn TV special:

5 ways to protect your First Amendment rights. Number 4 will surprise you.

Buyenlarge / Contributor | Getty Images

Every day it seems Glenn covers another story revealing how people across the world at all levels of power DESPISE the fact that YOU have rights, and they are actively trying to curtail them. Recently, there has been a string of attacks against the rights outlined in the First Amendment: the freedom of religion, the freedom of speech, the freedom of press, the freedom of assembly, and the freedom to petition.

As a refresher, the First Amendment reads as follows:

"Congress shall make no law respecting an establishment of religion, or prohibiting the free exercise thereof; or abridging the freedom of speech, or of the press; or the right of the people peaceably to assemble, and to petition the Government for a redress of grievances."

This is powerful stuff, there is a good reason the Founding Fathers made it the FIRST Amendment. It's also the reason why power-hungry elites are attacking it. These attacks are designed to control the way you think, speak, and believe, vote, what you read, and who holds your representatives responsible. The First Amendment is our strongest weapon against tyrants, and they know it.

So what can you do about it? Hope that some wig in Washinton will eventually do something? We know how well that works. The best thing to do is to stay active, engage in the issues you care about, and exercise your rights.

So where to start? Here are a few things YOU can do to protect your First Amendment rights:

Religion

The best way to flex your Freedom of Religion is to—you guessed it—practice your faith. Become an active member in your place of worship, go to scripture studies, invite your friends to that late afternoon event, and walk the life. This can impact the way you spend money as well. Shop the businesses and brands that share your values, and don't shop at the ones that scorn them. Keeping the community alive and healthy is the best way to ensure that generations to come will be able to experience the freedom you enjoy.

Speech

Much like religion, the best way to protect your freedom of speech is... to speak. Engage your friends and family in polite, civil conversation. Stand up for what you believe in, and make your case to your peers. Just remember to keep it friendly. No one ever won an argument by shouting down their opponent. The civil exchange of ideas is the cornerstone of our republic, and a dialogue where the participants are well-informed, considerate, compassionate, and open-minded can have permanent impacts on all involved.

Press

Freedom of the Press seems a little tricky at first. Unless you work for the media, what are you supposed to do? Quit your job and go work for the local newspaper? The good news is that exercising this right is not nearly that difficult. In fact, you are currently doing it. The best thing you can do is to read from outlets that produce informative content.

Assembly

Freedom of assembly is one of the more impactful yet underutilized freedoms in the First Amendment. Peaceably assembling and protesting with like-minded individuals can hugely influence politicians and policies while simultaneously creating community and fellowship between attendees. It's understandable why more people don't turn out. We're all busy people with busy schedules, and flying out to D.C. for the weekend seems like a daunting task to many. Thankfully, you don't have to go out all the way to D.C. to make a difference. Gather some like-minded people in your town and bring awareness to issues that impact your community. Big change starts locally, and exercising your freedom to assemble can be the catalyst to lasting impact.

Petition

If you've been a long-time listener of Glenn, then you will have heard a few of his calls to action where he asks his audience to contact their representatives about a particular piece of policy. There is a good reason Glenn keeps on doing those: they work. Whether it's your local mayor or your senator, a call and an email go a long way. If you really want to make a change, convince your friends and family to reach out as well.
