Jeh Johnson Demonstrates Willful Blindness of Obama Administration

Homeland Security Chief Jeh Johnson testified yesterday before the Senate Judiciary Committee on Oversight of the Department of Homeland Security in Washington, D.C. He was grilled by Senator Ted Cruz, an attorney well-versed in cross examination, on the administration scrubbing references to jihad, radical Islamic terrorism, Islam and Muslims from documents and conversations.

Buck Sexton, filling in for Glenn Friday on The Glenn Beck Program, addressed Chief Johnson's testimony.

"So Ted Cruz went through the numbers on just what used to be the case in terms of official government reporting on this issue, and what seems to be happening now," Sexton said.

In the 9/11 Commission Report, the word jihad appears 126 times, the word Muslim appears 145 times, the word Islam appears 322 times. Under the Obama administration, systemic policy changes no longer allow those terms to be used.

Key findings communicated by the committee included:

• The FBI counterterrorism lexicon uses the word jihad zero times.

• The national intelligence strategy of 2009 uses the word jihad zero times.

• The strategic implementation plan to prevent violent extremism uses the word jihad zero times.

• The national intelligence strategy in 2014 uses the word jihad zero times.

• In October 2009, more than 800 customs and border patrol documents were ordered modified, scrubbed or deleted to remove references to jihad or the Muslim brotherhood or other similar references.

Further evidence that the Obama administration actively pursues changing the dialogue and conversation regarding Islamic extremism was provided by none other than Chief Johnson's himself during testimony:

Senator, I find this whole debate to be very interesting, but I have to tell you, when I was at the Department of Defense, giving the legal sign off on a lot of drone strikes, I didn't particularly care whether the baseball card said Islamic extremist or extremist. I think this is very interesting, but it makes no difference to me in terms of who we need to go after who is determined to attack our homeland. The other point I'd like to make, sir, is that --- and I have to think in practical terms in homeland security...all very interesting...makes for good political debate ---but in practical terms, if we in our efforts here in the homeland start giving the Islamic state the credence that they want to be referred to as part of Islam or some form of Islam, we will get nowhere in our efforts to build bridges with Muslim communities, which we need to do. In this current environment right now, that includes home-grown violent extremists.

"This is the Department of Homeland Security's chief officer. This is the guy who runs the whole show at DHS," Sexton said, pointing out Johnson's snide and dismissive tone.

The truth of the matter particularly galled Sexton.

"They're actively trying to change the conversation, to change the discussion about how we are able to debate, how we fight the war against global jihadism, how we deal with these myriad terrorist groups that all happen to think that they are in some way a member of the Islamic community. And then you have him saying that, 'Oh, by the way, we can't refer to Islam in any way when we're talking about groups like the Islamic state.' He says this without irony," Sexton said.

President Joe Biden just had the worst-rated week in the entire first year of his presidency, but his latest poll numbers are the icing on the cake, Bill O'Reilly told Glenn Beck on the radio program.

Given that polls aren’t always correct, O’Reilly explained another way to prove that Biden's first year may be worse than any other president's before him: It’s impossible to name one single contribution Biden has made to move America forward.

"Biden: There isn't anything you can point to. Not one thing ... that he's done to improve the nation. That's the test. You just step back, take emotion out of it, politics out of it, and say, give me one thing that Joe Biden has done to improve the country. Just one. And you can't do it," O'Reilly said. "And if there is, I want your listeners to contact me at BillO'Reilly.com."

A recent report from Rolling Stone details a public letter sent to Spotify — signed by "270 physicians and scientists" — demanding that the platform implement a "misinformation policy" in response to Joe Rogan's recent interview with Dr. Robert Malone on “The Joe Rogan Experience.”

"This is absolute fascism," Glenn Beck said on the radio program. "There is no safe space. They're coming after talk radio. They're coming after our podcasts. They're coming after our websites."

Glenn said this is this is just one more example of the left's crackdown on freedom of speech and further prove of their ongoing fight against free thinkers or anybody who wants to have an open conversation that may include ideas contrary to what they believe.

There is no transparency when it comes to the Biden administration, and Texas Republican Sen. Ted Cruz's recent exchange with the FBI’s Jill Sanborn is just another example. When questioned about alleged involvement the FBI had on January 6, 2021, Sanborn refused to answer almost every single time.

Do our government officials still work for us? Take a look at the latest headlines: The DOJ and U.S. Army are preparing for possible conflicts with "domestic terrorists," Biden's education secretary allegedly requested the NSBA letter that suggested treating upset parents like domestic terrorists, and President Biden said if you're not with him on the Democrats' voting bills, then you're with the Confederacy. Meanwhile, the FBI won't tell Congress whether it was involved in the the Jan. 6 Capitol riot and the corporate media insists that there's nothing to see here, especially concerning Ray Epps.

The American people are concerned, and it’s "extraordinarily disturbing" how far the federal government goes to avoid answering our questions, Glenn Beck said on the radio program. There's a very odd growing trend here: Our leaders, including the unelected ones, no longer answer to the people. This must stop now.

"The question that I have is, where is the transparency? And is anyone going to be held accountable? They are not afraid of our senators. They are not afraid of Congress," he stated. "This has got to stop. They have got to answer to the law. This is an oversight committee. Who is in charge, the FBI or the people? Once the people are not in charge and are not allowed to see the secret documents, we are toast. Toast!"
