Updates on the Saudi National–Held after Boston Bombing–Gone but not Forgotten–The People Demand Answers for their Safety!

It’s time to put out a series of updates I have been following through the Blaze TV.
There are a lot of questions that need to be answered for the sake of public safety of all U.S. citizens.  If the main stream media will not do their job and the story from the Obama’s Executive Administration keeps changing, then we have to keep up the pressure to get real answers.  We deserve it and I guess we’ll only get what we deserve if we demand it.
Contact your U.S. Congress and demand that they get to the bottom of this matter.  Why was this Saudi National given a 212, 3B file?  How was it removed?  Was it removed?  Where is Abdul Rahman Ali Alharbi, the Saudi National?  Are we truly safe in America if we don’t know the truth about all of these questions?

The Blaze has been extensively covering the strange details surrounding Abdul Rahman Ali Alharbi, the Saudi national who was once considered a person of interest in the Boston Marathon attacks. On his Wednesday evening broadcast, Glenn Beck explored Alharbi’s immigration status as well as provided viewers with another look at the event file he said was created on the Saudi student.
Earlier on Wednesday, Erica Ritz provided a timeline of the events surrounding the Saudi national as follows: (Click here to read the full article)

First Alleged Photo of Michelle Obama Visiting Saudio Abdul Rahman Al Harbi Surfaces on Facebook

Photos of a visit Michelle Obama is alleged to have had with Abdul Rahman Alharbi — the Saudi national previously considered to be “person of interest,” “armed and dangerous,” and worthy of inclusion on a watch list — may have appeared on a Facebook page associated with an English language school in Boston or students who share a common bond of going to English schools in the area.

For the past week, Glenn Beck has been investigating a Saudi national once identified as a “person of interest” in the Boston Marathon bombing.  The story has taken a number of alarming twists and turns, but on his radio program Wednesday, Beck released some of the most interesting information yet.
But first, here are a few background points on how the case developed:
  • A Saudi national originally identified as a “person of interest” in the Boston Marathon bombing was set to be deported under section 212, 3B — “Security and related grounds” — “Terrorist activities” after the bombing on April 15
  • TheBlaze received word that the government may not deport the Saudi national — identified as Abdul Rahman Ali Alharbi — as the story gained traction on April 18.
  • Homeland Security Secretary Janet Napolitano refused to answer questions on the subject by Rep. Jeff Duncan (R-SC) on Capitol Hill on April 18, saying the inquiry was “so full of misstatements and misapprehension that it’s just not worthy of an answer.”

Not Again! Tell the Media to Cover this Story!

Exclusive on “The Blaze,” that the mainstream media is ignoring.
If you follow Glen Beck’s website, The Blaze, then you know something a lot of other United States citizen’s don’t.  There appears to be a potential cover-up in play to deport a Saudi national.
Read the story and if you believe as I do, that this deserves to be covered at a much larger level, then please contact your local and national news markets.

Sources tell TheBlaze that the Saudi national is set to be deported on “security and related grounds.” His visa also has been revoked. Below is some of the information that has been communicated to us:
1. One source at the FBI and another at the Saudi Embassy referred to the student as connected to an important Saudi family.
2. An “event” was created on this guy three days ago. An event is a file. The file contains his deportation record and the reason he is being deported. According to ICE the reason is under section 212 3B — “Security and related grounds” — “Terrorist activities”
3. His visa has been revoked.
4. The FBI said a file was started “just in case he was found to be connected to the crime,” however, the file shows he was scheduled to be deported. This was not a precaution, it was in “orders.”
5. One source said they believe a “voluntary” departure has been signed — that means the Saudi Student could be out of the country as early as today.
6. The file was immediately classified. We believe the deportation order will be classified as well — requiring a FOIA to get it.
7. The story was going to be “he wanted to go home,” however he was actually being deported.
8. Our source said the FBI believes the Saudi student is tied to 2 to 3 more people.
9. Our source said this “looks like they were trying to make this a ‘lone wolf’ crime so, the Saudi government would be spared embarrassment and the U.S. would avoid explaining how a terror cell was active when we had AQ on the run.”
UPDATE III (10:50 am ET):
TheBlaze Chief Content Officer Joel Cheatwood reported on “The Glenn Beck Program” Thursday morning that TheBlaze has been informed that the government is now ​considering ​not deporting Abdul Rahman Ali Alharbi.
“Just got a note from one of our investigative reporters that she has been told that there is now discussion that they may not allow this man to be deported,” Cheatwood said.

Dr Easterbrook v. WWU Geology Department “Out of their League?”

Some articles deserve to be posted in their entirety, because the controversy of one man, one published man, one published man with emeritus standing at Western Washington University has been personally maligned because he went before the Washington State Legislature to share his knowledge on Anthropogenic Global Warming (AGW); aka Human caused global warming due to our dependence on fossil fuels for energy and their contribution to increased levels of CO2.

Before you read Dr. Easterbrook’s rebuttal to the WWU Geology Departments opinion piece, published in the Bellingham Herald, I would ask that you read the article links posted below.  The second link is the original WWU Geology article that I referenced previously.  The third link is a rebuttal submitted by Dr. David Deming, (which the Bellingham Herald refused to publish) that was published at the WUWT blog.

  1. March 26, 2013 opinion piece of Dr. Easterbrook’s presentation to the Washington State Legislature
  2. March 31, 2013 opinion piece of WWU Geology Department faculty refuting Dr. Easterbrook’s testimony to the State Legislature
  3. WUWT posting of Dr. David Deming, Professor of Arts & Sciences at the University of Oklahoma, rebuttal of the WWU Geology Departments letter
  4. WUWT posting of the Bellingham Heralds release of Dr. Easterbrook’s rebuttal to the WWU Geology Department, opinion piece published on March 31, 2013

What would we do if the Mainstream Media and our Universities would actually give balanced time and opinion of what’s really happening out there?  Possibly real problems that need real solutions would receive the funding that is needed.  And, we could potentially stop wasting time and valuable resources to solve something that’s not a problem, if it ever was a problem.

Easterbrook disputes WWU faculty global warming opinions

Published: April 14, 2013


"WWU faculty find overwhelming scientific evidence to support global warming." Of course there is overwhelming evidence of global warming! Everyone agrees! But that doesn't prove it was caused by carbon dioxide! The authors fail to understand:

Of the two periods of global warming this century, the first, and warmest, occurred before rise in carbon dioxide;

Twenty periods of global warming occurred over the past five centuries;

The past 10,000 years were warmer than present;

Multiple periods of intense warming (20 times more intense than recent warming) occurred 10,000-to-15,000 years ago. All of these happened long before rise in carbon dioxide, so could not possibly have been caused by carbon dioxide.

The Bellingham Herald opinion column is a diatribe against me personally (just read the slurs and innuendos) containing misrepresentations, no real data to support their contentions, and displays an abysmal ignorance of published literature. The reason becomes apparent when you realize that not a single one of the 13 Western Washington University authors has ever published a single paper on global climate change and none have any expertise whatsoever in climate issues.

Their claim that my publications "have not passed through rigorous peer review" is false. Virtually all of my 180 publications were peer-reviewed. The real joke here is they "fully support the 2007 IPCC report," but Donna Laframboise in 2011 documented that 30 percent of the references used were not peer-reviewed, so using their own standard, they would be forced to reject the 2007 Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change report!

The authors claim that "CO2 is a powerful greenhouse gas" that has "significant and measureable impact on surface temperature." Carbon dioxide is a greenhouse gas, but it has little impact on temperature because it makes up only 0.038 percent of the atmosphere, has changed only 0.008 percent since carbon dioxide rose after 1945 (if you double nothing, you still have nothing), and accounts for only 3.6 percent of greenhouse warming. Carbon dioxide is incapable of changing global temperature by more than a fraction of a degree.

The authors "decry the injection of such poor quality science into the public discourse." I work with 20 of the world's top scientists, including atmospheric physicists, astrophysicists, geologists, and marine geophysicists who wouldn't waste time working with me if my research was "of poor quality."

The authors claim that my work requires "broad, decades-long conspiracy falsify climate data."

In 1999, NASA data showed the 1930s were the hottest decade of the century and 1936 the hottest year. In 2012, NASA subtracted temperatures from the 1930s data and added to recent temperatures to claim that recent years were "unprecedented and the warmest ever recorded." Check NASA data tampering at This lies behind all of the false claims that recent global warming is "unprecedented."

The authors claim a "vast consensus of the science community." However, 31,487 U.S. scientists (including 9,000 with doctorates) with degrees in atmospheric, Earth sciences, physics, chemistry, biology and computer science have signed a statement that reads: "There is no convincing scientific evidence that human release of carbon dioxide, methane, or other greenhouse gases is causing, or will in the foreseeable future, cause catastrophic heating of the Earth's atmosphere and disruption of the Earth's climate." Check names and expertise at Signatures of 1.5 million scientists would be required to achieve the claimed "vast consensus" of scientists! The Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change chairman admitted that 80 percent of the people involved in the panel were not even scientists!

The WWU faculty was challenged to debate the issues. The response from David Hirsh was: "I don't want the media to present both sides of an issue." "Well, the problem is it's not 'my' science. I do not now, nor have I claimed to be an expert in climate science. The question was would I support a debate-type forum to be hosted at WWU? I would not." He went on to say that he didn't want to debate because he had not addressed any of the scientific issues, but supported the personal attack.

So what can we conclude about The Bellingham Herald opinion column? Perhaps more than anything it shows that amateurs with no expertise in climate issues are way out of their league and would be wiser to stick to their own areas of expertise, hard rock geology. In the end, nature will tell us who is right and that is happening right now as the climate continues to cool with no warming in 15 years.
