The Underwear Bomber Has His Tighty-Whities in a Bunch Over Prison Conditions

The “underwear bomber” who tried and failed to detonate a bomb during an international flight near Detroit almost eight years ago says his rights are being violated in prison. He is now suing the federal government in a 73-page court filing.

The Denver Post reported:

Umar Farouk Abdulmutallab, who failed in a Christmas Day 2009 attempt to blow up Northwest Airlines Flight 253, with a bomb sewn into his underwear, is suing the Federal Bureau of Prisons and U.S. Attorney General Jeff Sessions, claiming his First, Fifth and Eight Amendments rights are being violated.

On today’s show, Glenn reminded everyone of what this would-be terrorist tried to do. The Nigerian man is serving four terms of life imprisonment plus 50 years after being convicted on charges including “attempted use of a weapon of mass destruction on a commercial airliner.”

GLENN: It was Christmas Day, 2009. A man smuggled chemicals onto a Northwest Airlines flight, with 289 passengers aboard.

Now, this feat required the precision of a master technician and the stealth of a magician. One doesn't just simply waltz onto a plane with a carry-on of deadly, flammable liquids. Too obvious. You might be mistaken for a terrorist.

Now, this -- this top secret mission required months or even minutes of careful planning. It also took a steady hand, sometimes two steady hands for the chemicals would have to be concealed where no chemical agent would ever go.

The man made it through airport security, with concealed chemicals intact. Too easy, he thought.

He then thought of Richard Reid, the failed shoe bomber. "Amateur." The flight from Amsterdam to Detroit seemed to last forever. His neither regions were cramped and uncomfortable. He had stashed the secret chemicals within the cotton confines of his underpants. Brilliant, he thought to himself.

Finally, the plane is beginning to descend toward Detroit. The man covered himself with a blanket and tried to light his skivvies on fire. But first, just smoke. No fruit of the boom. Just a burning sensation, where you never want to feel a burning sensation.

Before he knew it, Umar Farook and his singed underpants landed in maximum security federal prison with a life sentence for his brief attempt at mass murder.

Well, now he has a new burning sensation. A burning desire to communicate with the fellow citizens of the world, except he says, the United States government is keeping him down. Violating his first, fifth, and Eighth Amendment rights. Because now, he cares so deeply about stuff like freedom and American constitutional rights.

Last week, he sued Uncle Sam for prohibiting him from having any communication whatsoever from more than a 7.5 billion people, quoting the vast majority of people on the planet, end quote.

He also now says solitary confinement is inhumane, and he's not allowed to pray with his fellow Muslims. Apparently, life in prison is proving to be even more restrictive than his tighty-whities were.

WATCH: Rudy Giuliani says he has PROOF Joe Biden was business partners with Chinese Communists

Tonight at 9 p.m. ET, 8 p.m. CT, Glenn Beck goes straight to the source of the biggest story in the country with Mayor Rudy Giuliani, who takes us directly into Hunter Biden's alleged laptop.

Despite Big Tech's attempts to squash this story, there should be a mad scramble in the media to get to the bottom of major corruption allegations, but they're willfully ignoring it. However, this is not just a story about Hunter Biden. This is all about Joe Biden. It's a story Glenn has been investigating for over a year that traces back to Ukraine and China. It goes directly to the root of corruption within our political system: How politicians use their family members to enrich the entire clan and sell out their country. While the media looks the other way, Glenn asks Mayor Giuliani to show us the evidence. Giuliani details the chain of possession of the laptop and reveals news that he only had possession of the laptop days before the New York Post story broke. He says, "I reported this the day after I saw it."

He also drops a major bombshell on the show and says Big Tech doesn't want you to see evidence that "establishes with texts, documents, contracts" that "Joe Biden was a 10% partner with a Chinese communist … and there are witnesses that will come forward and testify to it."

GLENN’S THEORY: This is why Hunter Biden allegedly abandoned his laptop

We don't yet fully know why or how Hunter Biden's laptop allegedly was abandoned at a computer repair store. But, Glenn has a theory: did Hunter Biden purposely leave his computer — which contains countless materials harmful to his dad's campaign — to make it all stop? Hunter Biden has a troubled past — he has a history of alcohol and drug abuse, and it seems like Joe Biden has used his son for years to enrich the Biden family. So, Glenn thinks, maybe Hunter knew what he was doing…maybe it was a "self-sabotaging" cry for help. It's just a theory, but Glenn thinks it's a theory worth pursuing...

Former Obama admin. Secretary says we need a 'truth commission' to 'erase Trump's lies'

The far-left gets scarier each day. Now, former Obama administration Secretary of Labor, Robert Reich, is advocating for the establishment of a "Truth and Reconciliation Commission" once President Trump leaves office. He tweeted that the commission would "erase Trump's lies, comfort those who have been harmed by his hatefulness, and name every official, politician, executive, and media mogul whose greed and cowardice enabled this catastrophe." Glenn describes how similar models have been used in places like Serbia and Rwanda, and it never ends well for the minority party. In fact, Glenn says, an idea like this one can be used to further surveil and control the citizens who disagree.

How our 'free' press is censoring the truth like NEVER BEFORE

The New York Post released last week a report that COULD put an end to the Joe Biden campaign. It's too bad the NY Post is unable to share the story — which all centers on information found on the alleged Hunter Biden laptop mysteriously left at a computer repair store — with the world on social media. But the publication has been LOCKED from sharing stories on Twitter for over four days now. And it's not just the Post. Glenn describes how MSNBC's Chuck Todd blatantly disregarded fact during an interview with Michigan Governor Gretchen Whitmer, how the Washington Post failed to correct the same claims, and how leaders at Facebook have direct ties to Joe Biden. Our "free" press continues to censor the truth and it becomes more and more frightening each day.
