Irving Mayor: Ahmed Mohamed’s Family Blocking Release of Records; Obama Tweeted Support Even Before “Clock” Pic Released

Irving Mayor: Ahmed Mohamed’s Family Blocking Release of Records; Obama Tweeted Support Even Before “Clock” Pic Released

How did Obama come to know about this story so quickly?

Last night, Irving Texas Mayor Beth Van Duyne revealed that the family of Ahmed Mohammed has repeatedly refused to meet with city officials, refused to released records exonerating police conduct, and that President Obama had tweeted about the case even before pictures of the so-called “clock” were publicly available.
Appearing on Glenn Beck’s The Blaze TV, Van Duyne noted how reporting on the interaction between Mohammed and police had been remarkably one-sided, in part because the Mohammed family refused to release records noting:
“As a juvenile, they can not release those records. The school district, a number of times, has asked the family, to release the records, so that you can have the balanced story out there. The family is ignoring the request from the ISD.”
Van Duyne told Beck it would “help to describe why it progressed as it did” if the records were available. “Nobody is going to walk in and say, ‘oh you’re a 14-year old child, you’re totally cooperating, we have all the answers we need, let’s arrest you,’” Van Duyne added.
A spokesperson for the Irving Police Department has said there have been multiple open records requests for the full police reporting, but that those requests remained in the hands of the city’s legal advisor. The available police report describes the event only as, “…Arrestee being in possession of a hoax bomb at MacArthur High School.”
Van Duyne said that according to the information she had seen, Mohammed had been “non-responsive” and “passive aggressive” in response to questions from police officers.
The refusal to amiably resolve the situation continued as the family rushed to bring Council on American Islamic Relations (CAIR) representatives into the case, and repeatedly cancelled meetings with the school district and city officials before finally speaking to the media.
“We had tried to reach out to the family a number of times; this was before it ever even hit the papers on Wednesday,” Van Duyne said pointing out that the family repeatedly canceled attempts to discuss the matter.
“At the exact same time they were supposed to be meeting with us, they were on their front lawn with a press conference,“ she said.
Van Duyne also pointed out that President Obama, like many others, had rushed to judgment before the facts in the case had become available.
“We never even got a call from anybody at the White House asking to verify any of that information. I don’t think the picture of the hoax bomb was even released before he tweeted ‘cool clock kid.’” Van Duyne said.
Van Duyne said she was “shocked” when she saw the President’s tweet to Ahmed Mohammed. “It seems to be an underlying habit that [President Obama] is going to second guess police officers without any kind of information.”
Van Duyne said that the Irving police chief, whom she called “a wonderful man”, was receiving death threats as a result of the case, as were other police officers, teachers and school administrators, in response to the controversy.
Van Duyne was joined on the Glenn Beck program by Jim Hanson, a former Special Forces Sergeant and Vice President of the Center for Security Policy, who pointed out CAIR’s documented ties to the Muslim Brotherhood and the terrorist group Hamas, and that the Mohammed family were members of a mosque tied to an Irving Sharia Tribunal which Mayor Van Duyne had publicly opposed.
“I don’t think there’s any question that this latest event was a PR stunt, it was a staged event,” Hanson said, saying the device did look like an explosive. “I’ve built briefcase bombs and blown them up, that’s what they look like,” Hanson pointed out referring to his time with Special Forces.
“They basically took a situation that the police handled properly, the school handled properly and all of a sudden everyone involved is a hater,” Hanson added.
Van Duyne also pointed out that the “teacher was reacting to the device not the student” stressing, “If something had happened, and nobody had spoken up, people would be livid. Can you imagine if you were a parent, at [Irving School District] and no one said anything?”

This is a total CAIR set up. CAIR is connected to the administration and conspired with the Obama administration to strike out against leaders in Irving, Texas because they opposed the Sharia tribunal that Zia Haq and his followers wanted to set up. This is a message from CAIR and the administration to those would dare to oppose Islam.

Clock-med's CAIR package....combo of Atlas' characterization of Clock-med and CAIR $hakedown effort.

Some of the publicity these $hakedown artists demanded may pay off for the DA, prosecution should a case be pursued. For instance:

Obama Blamed For Death Threats Against Police, Teachers in Muslim Student Clock Case
ff 2:00 for Mayor Van Duyne: "I think he was a pawn of potentially his father ... His sister actually claimed that SHE was suspended. His sister told MSNBC that she was suspended by the same school district for making a bomb threat years ago. Don't know if that's true yet but she said that in her own words".
ALSO...This may not be Ahmed's first rodeo with suspicious "inventions" too....
CNN: "In middle school, Ahmed said, he had been called "bombmaker" and a "terrorist.""
Ahmed's voluntarily professed statement suggests he's also been accused of this before.
KEEP IN MIND, the school day just prior to Ahmed's stunt was Friday, Sept. 11
Coincidentally....a nearby high school in Plano was the subject of a publicized and frightening bomb scare on 9/11/2015.
Ahmed had to have known that his clock would look suspicious.
He knew it looked like a bomb.

Ahmed Mohamed told the Dallas Morning News, “I closed [the ‘clock’] with a cable, I didn’t want to lock it to make it seem like a threat … so it won’t look that much suspicious.”
This family refuses to sign a release of official and school records, yet they keep voluntarily releasing enough details to suggest enough reason to bring suit for fraud and possibly obstruction - since they also publicly revealed they are in NY hoping to obtain travel visas to Mecca (likely hoping to enter with some celebrity recognition).
I'm assuming an open investigation could hinder their VISA application process. On the other hand, I don't know that I would want to hinder their permanent exit from this nation.

Quote (Note: Eyman is Clockmed's sister):

"After the MSNBC segment, Eyman and I sit down in the hallway where she says the same thing happened to her as Ahmed.

“I got suspended from school for three days from this stupid same district, from this girl saying I wanted to blow up the school, something I had nothing to do with.”

Eyman talks with the slightest lisp, almost imperceptible, but it becomes stronger as she gets emotional.

“I got suspended and I didn’t do anything about it and so when I heard about Ahmed, I was so mad because it happened to me and I didn’t get to stand up, so I’m making sure he’s standing up because it’s not right. So I’m not jealous, I’m kinda like—it’s like he’s standing for me.”

Eyman said her suspension was in her first year of middle school, “my first year of attempting middle school in America. I knew English, but the culture was different, the people were different.”

"“I felt like I was a criminal, I felt like I was a terrorist,” he said in an interview on MSNBC Wednesday. “I felt like all the names I was called.”
“What do you mean, all the names you were called?” the interviewer, Chris Hayes, asked. “In middle school I was called a terrorist, called a bomb maker, just because of my race and religion,” he said, his expression sober.

Surprising that Obama invited Ahmed to the White House even before the photo of the mangled clock came out... what if he actually responded to the BLM cop killings with such promptness, real lives could be saved. But it seems Barry is much more into putting on his CAIR show.

The mainstream media will never tell this story. "The One" must be esteemed and respected -- and cannot possibly make a mistake.

An interesting synopsis with additional information about Clockmed's case:
via Danger&Play

"According to the non-partisan watchdog group GuideStar, the AlSufi Center was shut down for tax issues. (See Nonprofit Profile for Alsufi Center)


Why did this organization not file its tax paper work? Did it have something to hide?

Mayor Van Duyne & Glenn Beck re: Clockmed ff 4:30
Mayor Van Duyne: "...the fact is, is that Irving is one of the top hundred largest cities in the country. We've got -"
Glenn Beck: "It's the most diverse city in the country and everybody generally gets along."

then ff 11:40
Mayor Van Duyne: "...I think it's interesting that the first assessment, the first jump to conclusion was that it had to do with race. If you look at the breakdown in the demographic of this high school, less than 10% of the students are caucasion that go to this school. Less than 10%. So the idea that it was white privilege or that there was a 'jump to conclusion' just did not exist."
ff 12:50 Jim Hanson: "One thing, you asked about the parents, Glenn. The family goes to one of the mosques that started that tribunal, you know, that Mayor Van Duyne shed a light on. Ok, so there's another connection there to what's going on here in Irving....CAIR and everyone else wants payback and wants to advance that narrative that they were again, islamophobically shut down for trying to put in a shariah tribunal and supplant US law."

I have met three of the four Tribunal jurists and had a decade long professional friendship with one of them.

I was aware of the existence of the same, months prior to the city of Irving becoming aware of it.

Another example comes from this online report:
PakistanDailyTimes: Mohamed Elhassan: Strong on the Stalk
"Let me bring you up to speed and give a bit of an update on Mohamed Elhassan. He is my friend and we have shared many thoughts regarding his campaign. He is currently engulfed in the presidential race and is on the ground in Sudan. We spend time together between trips from Dallas to Sudan. I sat with him and assisted with crafting his policy voice before his recent meetings in Washington DC, Saudi Arabia and for the current trip to Sudan."
Mayor Van Duyne & Glenn Beck re: Clockmed
ff 18:33 Mayor Van Duyne: “...I know that we had, the school and the city each had meetings with the family on Tuesday. The family cancelled. They were rescheduled for Wednesday at 2:40 they were to meet with the school district. They didn’t. They were just no shows. At 3:30 on Wednesday they were supposed to meet with our police chief and I was going to be at. At the exact same time that they were supposed to be meeting with us they were on their front lawn in a press conference. We had another meeting scheduled on Friday and they were no-shows.”

Glenn Beck: “This is not about getting answers. This is about –“

Mayor Van Duyne: “No. I, we have tried to reach out to the family a number of times, and this was before it ever even hit the paper on Wednesday. The child was arrested, the teenage was arrested on Monday. On Tuesday there was a meeting scheduled, we were told that the meeting was cancelled. They rescheduled it for Wednesday bringing CAIR representatives with them and again, no showed.”

Jim Hanson: “Shocking. CAIR was there ready. They were there ready with hashtags, lawyers, and everything. The kid wouldn’t answer questions when the school was asking them or when the police were asking them but the second the cameras and the microphones turn on, he’s like ‘it’s because my name’s Ahmed. It’s because I have brown skin. It’s because I’m a Muslim.’ the kid was coached.”

Glenn Beck: “Did you find it interesting that the president was on a story about a school in Irving, Texas – he’s on that story before most of America is even aware of it?”

Mayor Van Duyne: “We never even got a call from anybody from the White House asking to verify any of that information. In fact, I don’t even think the picture of the ‘hoax bomb’ was released before he tweeted out ‘Cool clock, kid’. ”
