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.

In June, the Supreme Court ruled in favor of Masterpiece Cakeshop owner Jack Phillips after he had refused to make a custom cake for a same-sex wedding. So, the Left is after him again.

Phillips says that on the same day of the Supreme Court decision, he received a call from an attorney asking him to make a cake that fades from blue to pink to celebrate his gender transition. Phillips again refused. He has also been harassed by the same attorney with multiple requests for cakes celebrating everything from drug use to Satanism. Naturally, the Colorado Civil Rights Commission is going after Phillips for discrimination. Again.

Well, Phillips has understandably had enough. This week he filed a lawsuit against the state of Colorado. In the lawsuit, Phillips says his family lost 40 percent of its income due to the harassment he has received. He also says he and his employees were forced to complete a "reeducation program" about not exercising his faith at work.

In the Declaration of Independence, just before the list of specific grievances against King George III, Thomas Jefferson wrote:

"To prove this [talking about the king's tyranny], let Facts be submitted to a candid world."

The Left isn't interested in liberty and justice for all.

I wonder, do candid citizens in the U.S. notice that the tyranny against personal liberty, and religious liberty is not coming from the Right? Really, you would think that the Left would be all about the anything goes, to each his own kind of philosophy. "You do you," that's the typical Leftist philosophy, isn't it? It's certainly the spirit of postmodernism.

But the Left isn't interested in liberty and justice for all. They're interested in liberty and justice only for their vetted list of oppressed groups.

The Left is also pretty confident in its ownership of the "bigot" label to slap on whomever it deems necessary. But let's just go ahead and say it since no one else will – the Left is bigoted toward Christianity. This has nothing to do with the state of Colorado defending LGBT rights, and everything to do with their contempt for Jack Phillips' religious beliefs.

You know you're in for trouble any time an article begins with the following words: "These have been challenging times to be white in America."

Oh. I see where this is going:

People who aren't white may find this surprising. After all, it has been decades since white people could feel so free about loving their whiteness, or so openly celebrate whiteness, or talk about how much they relish being white and doing white activities.

RELATED: Redemption of a Grand Dragon: Can such a hateful person actually change?

Those are the opening lines of a recent NBC News op-ed- titled "Are 'white people' jokes racist? Let a fellow white person explain." I mean, it would make for incredible satire. I mean, if it were mocking the outrageous postmodern mental gymnastics of the modern Left, this article would be awe-inducing in its satirical prowess. Alas, it is not. It's real. The author, somehow, means what he's writing.

You know the routine: Racism against white people isn't a real thing. It's a clever mechanism which allows that racism against white people is purely linguistic, based on the idea that power determines who can say what.

You know the routine: Racism against white people isn't a real thing.

The idea is embodied by the entire article, but one sentence in particular smacks of it: "one of the great things about being white is that you'll never have to know what racism feels like (on the receiving end anyway)."

I think I know what it feels like. It feels like someone is judging based entirely on my skin color. Kinda like this entire article about how white people cannot be judged based entirely on their skin color. How does that not make sense?

The great censorship jihad continue'ith. And maybe one of the most bizarre developments in this war is how members of the media have formed a Caliphate to wage this jihad. There are actually beat reporters from the mainstream media, hanging on every word Alex Jones says with the hopes of catching him violating social media terms of service rules.

If these mainstream media jihadis catch Jones in the act of saying anything haram - or forbidden - they instantly charge the battlefield and pummel companies like Twitter with examples of how their rules are being infringed upon. Their strategy bared more fruit yesterday. Twitter, one of the last platforms Alex Jones still had, slapped him with a seven-day ban.

RELATED: Alex Jones BANNED?!

I just can't understand where the Media Caliphate is coming from here. When you're in the business of and count on, the free flow of information, is it not counter-productive to your business model to advocate for censorship? Do you not see the slippery slope you're on? Look, I get it. You think Alex Jones is looney tunes and maybe even dangerous, but silencing ideas and information should never be the answer.

Countering crazy and dangerous speech with rational and sane speech should be your mission… not censorship. You're helping Jones get silenced and cheering it on, but what will you do when someone comes to censor you? Because that's where this is headed.

But while the call for jihad was raised for Alex Jones, and silence now falls on his Twitter account, these accounts still have full access. The Nation of Islam, Louis Farrakhan, Beverly Hills Antifa, Antifa Philadelphia… there are more Antifa twitter accounts than I have time to mention.

The radical Left is so well represented on Twitter, you'd think they have their own private office at Twitter headquarters right next to Jack. The Revolutionary Communist Party of America is but one still posting and calling for things like - you know - just the violent takeover of the U.S. government.

I hope the advocates for censorship enjoy these early victories because it won't be long before the monster they're unleashing turns on the master.

But the Media Caliphate isn't calling for their social media heads. They just want people like Alex Jones and Gavin McGinnis to shut up. I sure it doesn't have anything to do with - no it couldn't be - this is crazy talk, but both Jones and McGinnis work for rival media outlets and deliver rival narratives to the mainstream media.

I'm sure that has nothing to do with it. If smaller outlets like CRTV and Infowars are cutting into their viewership and stealing their YouTube and Social Media clicks, would it benefit the Caliphate to come at them full bore on a digital battlefield where they're currently getting their butts kicked? You bet it would, but that's just crazy talk.

I hope the advocates for censorship enjoy these early victories because it won't be long before the monster they're unleashing turns on the master.

How could you say no to that face?

Do you trust your own ability to unplug from technology? Some people born before the 1990s are wearing it as a badge of honor now – that they quit Facebook, or they do a regular technology fast.

We like to think we're not overly dependent on technology, while posting on social media about how old-school we are. That's all well and good until the technology starts giving you puppy dog eyes and producing digital crocodile tears. What if your robot begs you not to turn it off? Will you still do it?

RELATED: Glenn's Predictions on Technology and AI for 2018

This isn't science fiction anymore. It's right around the corner. And if you're skeptical whether humans will treat robots like a family member, a new study might alter your view.

Researchers in Germany set up an experiment to examine how people treat robots when the robots act like humans. Each human participant was asked to work with a robot named Nao to create a weekly schedule and answer a series of questions.

What the participants didn't know was that completing the tasks was just a way for the researchers to find out what they were really interested in – how the participant's interaction with Nao would affect their ability to shut down the robot when asked.

Half of the participants were asked to shut down Nao without the robot protesting. But the other half of the participants heard Nao plead with them, saying: "No! Please do not switch me off! I am scared that it will not brighten up again!"

Of the 43 people who heard Nao's plea, 13 chose not to turn him off. Some said they felt sorry for him, others that they didn't want to act against his will.

The other 30 people did turn him off, but they took twice as long on average to do so than the group that did not hear the robot's plea.

Our 2018 problems will suddenly seem very quaint.

The experiment confirms previous research demonstrating that humans are prone to treat technology, especially robots with human-like traits, as living beings.

Now, take this human tendency, and fast-forward a few years in the future when robots will look, sound, and act human, and know everything about us. Our 2018 problems will suddenly seem very quaint.
