At Least 300 Dead After Saturday’s Terrorist Attack in Somalia

What happened?

The deadliest attack in Somalia in a decade has claimed at least 300 lives, an official said today in Mogadishu.

Reuters reported:

Locals visiting their injured relatives or collecting their bodies filled every available space in Madina hospital.

“My last time to speak with my brother was some minutes before the blast occurred,” Halima Nur, a local mother, told Reuters.

“I am afraid he was among the unrecognized charred bodies that were buried yesterday. I have no hope of getting him alive or dead. But I cannot go home.”

Oh, no. Catch me up:

On Saturday, a double bombing struck two busy spots in Somalia’s capital city. Large truck bombs like those used are the signature mark of Al Shabaab, a terrorist organization linked to al Qaeda.

Glenn’s take:

The only way we can make any sense of tragedies like this one is to remember that good will ultimately triumph.

“Terror won’t and can’t win,” Glenn said. “The good guys always win in the end.”

GLENN: This morning, exhausted, doctors are struggling to keep their eyes open. They are frantically attending screaming patients. Many burned beyond recognition, who are continuously entering and exiting the hospital like a horrific revolving door. These are victims of a double-truck bombing that occurred Saturday in a crowded street in Mogadishu. The deadly attack in Somalia, 300 lives, and still counting.

This is sub-Saharan Africa. And it's not seen this level of violence since 1998, when they bombed the embassy. The Somali government is blaming Al-Qaeda, Al-Shabaab, an extremist group for the bloodshed. The Shabaab, which once controlled most of the cities. Lost their territory in the area, thanks to the Somali army and American counterterrorism operations.

However, it is still a deadly threat to the people of Somalia. And hundreds of people have been killed and wounded in the attacks on the capitol, this year alone.

The Somali president said this attack proves our enemy will stop at nothing to cause our people pain and suffering. Let's unite against terror. Time to unite and pray together. The terror won't win.

I want to bring you a quick message. The terror won't and can't win. The good guys always win in the end. And Shabaab, they're not good guys. We will always be changing and challenging evil, that is spread out worldwide. But we and the good people in Somali, the good people in Europe, the good people in Asia, should take comfort that good wins, in the end -- and our prayers go out to the people of Somalia today.

'Welcome to Anarchism, Glenn' | Michael Malice | Ep 121

Buckle up, this one is a wild ride. Author of "The Anarchist Handbook" and podcast host of "Your Welcome" Michael Malice wants to burn it all down, peacefully and with a smile. "My rights are NOT up for discussion," he tells Glenn. He explains why his version of America will save America. He and Glenn also discuss why corporate media is shrinking, why Boomers love Martin Luther King Jr., how Trump earned the spite vote, and why gun control is officially solved. But how does anarchism solve the China problem or potential nuclear threats? Somehow, he has the answer. He also tells Glenn how a concept like Blaze Media brought down the Soviet Union and why, in spite of anxious talk of "national divorce," he has so much hope for the future.

INSANITY: High schooler ARRESTED after not wearing mask at school tells her story

On Thursday's radio program, Grace Smith and her father, Andy, joined Glenn Beck on the phone and provided a first-hand account of Grace's refusal to wear a mask at school.

Smith, 16, began a maskless protest after her school district in Laramie, Wyoming, decided to implement a mask mandate. As a result, Grace received three suspensions, was issued two $500-citations, and was eventually arrested.

"How long were you in jail?" Glenn asked.

Grace said was taken to jail but was never booked nor was she was placed in a jail cell.

Glenn commended Grace's father, Andy, for raising such a "great citizen" and asked if it was Grace's idea to protest. Andy said it was Grace's idea, explaining that they took the position of arguing on the grounds of civil rights rather than the efficacy of wearing a mask.

Grace has since withdrawn from public school and started a home school program. She also told Glenn that she will continue to fight the school district, legally.

Jason Whitlock: Raiders coach fired by NFL as a ‘SIGNAL’ to others

Raiders Head Coach Jon Gruden was forced to resign (fired) by the NFL on Monday due to 'misogynistic' and 'homophobic' language found in several of his old, private emails. But Jason Whitlock, sports writer and host of 'Fearless' on BlazeTV, tells Glenn that Gruden's words never should have resulted in his job lost: 'We should have accepted his apology and kept it moving.' But instead, Whitlock says the NFL chose to use Gruden as a 'signal' for all other employees who may oppose the football organization's current, far-left political stances: 'Taking over sports, taking over the NFL, is crucial to the goals of the left and what they're trying to do.'

How an ‘orchestrated’ revolution is bringing America TO ITS KNEES

Victor Davis Hanson, Senior Fellow at the Hoover Institution, joins Glenn to discuss his new book, 'The Dying Citizen.' He explains how America's hippies from the 1960s are the progressive elites running our institutions today and how their 'well orchestrated' moves have created a top-down revolution that's 'bringing us down to our knees.' So, what's the solution? Davis Hanson tells Glenn what we can do to push back against the far left today…
