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.

A new Pew Research Center report shows the death toll in the United States from COVID-19 is "heavily concentrated" in Democratic congressional districts.

According to the analysis, more than half of all COVID-19 deaths in the U.S. occurred in just 44 (approximately 10 percent of) congressional districts, and 41 of those 44 hardest-hit districts are represented by Democrats, while only three are represented by Republicans.

"A new Pew Research Center analysis of data on official reports of COVID-19 deaths, collected by the John Hopkins University Center for Systems Science and Engineering, finds that, as of last week, nearly a quarter of all the deaths in the United States attributed to the coronavirus have been in just 12 congressional districts – all located in New York City and represented by Democrats in Congress. Of the more than 92,000 Americans who had died of COVID-19 as of May 20 (the date that the data in this analysis was collected), nearly 75,000 were in Democratic congressional districts," Pew reported.

Filling in for Glenn Beck on the radio program this week, Pat Gray and Stu Burguiere argued that, while the coronavirus should never have been made into a partisan issue, the study certainly makes a strong statement in favor of GOP leadership.

The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) once predicted the coronavirus death rate would be between 4 and 5 percent, but they've just come out with a new report and those predictions have been adjusted significantly.

According to the CDC's latest data, the fatality rate among Americans showing COVID-19 symptoms is 0.4 percent. And an estimated 35 percent who are infected by the virus will never have any symptoms. Therefore, the CDC is now estimating COVID-19 kills less than 0.3 percent of people infected.

Filling in for Glenn Beck on the radio program this week, Pat Gray and Stu Burguiere recalled when the mainstream media went into overdrive, hammering President Donald Trump for predicting the final COVID-19 death rate would be "under one percent."

Looks like the president was right all along.

Michigan barber Karl Manke isn't a troublemaker. He's a law-abiding citizen who did everything possible to financially survive during the COVID-19 lockdown. pandemic. Eventually, he had no other option: he had to reopen his business in defiance of Democratic Gov. Gretchen Whitmer's stay-at-home orders.

In an interview on the "Glenn Beck Radio Program," Manke, 77, told Glenn, "I'm not backing down" despite Whitmer's seemingly vindictive attempts to shut down his business.

Shortly after reopening, Manke was ticketed for violating Whitmer's stay-at-home order and charged with a misdemeanor. When he still refused to close his doors, the governor's office went a step further and suspended his barber license.

"It's kind of a vindictive thing," said Manke. "I've become a worm in her brain ... and she is going full force, illegally, when legislatures told her that she was out of place and this was not her assignment, she decided to take it anyway."

On Thursday, the Shiawassee County Circuit Judge refused to issue a preliminary injunction against Manke. Read more on this update here.

Time after time, Americans have taken to the streets to defend our constitutional rights, whether it was our livelihood at stake -- or our lives. But, what was the point of all the civil rights movements that came before, if we're about to let the government take our rights away now?

On his Wednesday night special, Glenn Beck argued that Americans are tired of having our rights trampled by "tyrannical" leaders from state and local governments who are ignoring our unalienable rights during this pandemic.

"Our nanny state has gone too far. The men and women in office -- the ones closest to our communities, our towns, our cities -- are now taking advantage of our fear," Glenn said. "Like our brothers and sisters of the past, we need to start making the decisions that will put our destiny, and our children's destiny, back into our hands."

It took less than two months of the coronavirus tyranny to make America unrecognizable, but some Americans are fighting back, risking losing their jobs and businesses or even jail time, as they battle to take back our civil rights.

Here are just a few of their stories:

After New Jersey's Atilis Gym reopened in defiance of the governor's executive order, the Department of Health shut them down for "posing a threat to the public health." Co-owner Ian Smith says somebody sabotaged the gym's toilets with enire rolls of paper to create the public health "threat."

Oregon Salon owner, Lindsey Graham, was fined $14 thousand for reopening. She said she was visited by numerous government organizations, including Child Protective Services, in what she believes are bullying tactics straight from the governor's office.

77-year-old Michigan barber, Karl Manke, refused to close his shop even when facing arrest. "I couldn't go another 30 days without an income," he said. But when local police refused to arrest him, Gov. Gretchen Whitmer's (D) office suspending his business license instead.

Port of Seattle police officer Greg Anderson was suspended after he spoke out against enforcing what he called "tyrannical orders" imposed amid coronavirus lockdowns.

Kentucky mother-of-seven, Mary Sabbatino, found herself under investigation for alleged child abuse after breaking social distancing rules at a bank. After a social worker from child protective services determined there was no sign of abuse, he still sought to investigate why the Sabbatino's are homeschooling, and how they can give "adequate attention to that many children."

Dallas salon owner Shelley Luther was sentenced to seven days in jail after she defied the state-mandated stay-at-home orders to reopen her business.
