Update No. 2, Sept. 22: Make Your Own Clock in 20 Seconds!
Update Sept. 22, 2015:
Former New Jersey Supreme Court Judge Andrew Napolitano says Ahmed’s family could be liable for fraud charges.
Is it pessimistic to suggest suspicion when President Obama responds to an event supporting an administration narrative?
Is it correct to question Obama’s failed or slow responses to narrative-crushing events such as the Kate Steinle murder in San Francisco or the shooting of police officers by #BlackLivesMatters supporters?
So when Obama weighed in about Ahmed Mohamed’s clock, the suspicion radar immediately flashed. Obama responded to Mohamed who carried a homemade clock to school as a “science” project, but the clock resembled a bomb (complete with attache case). The school rightly called the police. With shootings and other acts of violence spiking all over the country, the teacher did the right thing under the government’s “See something, say something” refrain.
Of course, the school and police were admonished by the media. Apologies were demanded and Ahmed’s family removed him from the school. Islamic support groups issued their usual cries of victimhood. And, of course, our national commentator had to jump in with his own Tweet: “Cool clock, Ahmed. Want to bring it to the White House? We should inspire more kids like you to like science. It’s what makes America great.”
If you’re the school’s administrators or the police, what would’ve happened if the attache case WAS a bomb and they decided to poo-poo it out of political correctness of just not being serious?
Muslim Kid + Bomb Accusation + Handcuffs = Obama Comment and calls for “racism”, “profiling”, and the usual victim cards being played by a variety of U.S.-based pro-Muslim groups.

This all smelled like one of the AstroTurf agenda narratives planned and pushed by Obama’s behind-the-scenes crowd often run by Valerie Jarrett.
Pam Geller penned a story for Breitbart.com detailing how Mohamed’s father, Mohamed ElHassan Mohamed, owns a history of Islamic activism.
The New York Daily News reported this Wednesday about Ahmed Mohamed’s father, Mohamed ElHassan Mohamed:
One of the earliest instances of the standout citizen making national news was in 2011, when he sensationally stood up to an anti-Islamic pastor and defended the Koran as its defense attorney. That mock trial at a Florida church ended with the book’s burning, to ElHassan’s claimed shock. In an interview with the Washington Post at the time, the devoted Muslim said he’d take on Rev. Terry Jones’ challenge because the holy book teaches that Muslims should engage in peaceful dialogue with Christians.
Also in 2011, ElHassan debated Robert Spencer on the question of “Does Islam Respect Human Rights?” Clearly, he was trying to score a victory against a famous “Islamophobe” and thus win a name for himself. ElHassan has been looking for publicity and chances to fight against “Islamophobia” for a considerable period. Now he has seized it, going so far as to claim his son was “tortured” by school and law enforcement officials.
He finally has the cause he has been seeking for so long. School officials were being prudent, protecting the children. Irving, Texas has had its share of jihad and sharia. Two Muslim sisters, Amina and Sarah Said, were honor murdered by their father, execution-style, in Irving several years ago. He is still at large. And Irving, Texas is only half an hour from Garland, Texas – the site of a jihad shooting on a free speech event last May. And the news is regularly riddled with stories of young Muslims, all lovely, sweet achievers, who suddenly go jihad.
This story is pure agitprop most fatal. “If you see something, say something” is now racism. And for destroying this simple principle of self-protection, young Ahmed Mohamed is a media star. Not only has Barack Obama invited him to the White House, but NASA has also invited Ahmed to meet with them, as has Mark Zuckerberg of Facebook. The whole thing has clearly been a setup, and its effect will be to make Americans less safe. If you ever see a Muslim with a suspicious object, remember the lesson of Ahmed Mohamed: to say something would be “racism.” That could end up being the epitaph of America and the free world.
Dallas television station WFAA interviewed James McLellan of the Irving Police Department: “We attempted to question the juvenile about what it was and he would simply only say it was a clock. He didn’t offer any explanation as to what it was for, why he created this device, why he brought it to school.”
Islam permits what is called “taqiyya” which is explained on TheReligionOfPeace.com as: There are two forms of lying to non-believers that are permitted under certain circumstances, taqiyya and kitman. These circumstances are typically those that advance the cause Islam – in some cases by gaining the trust of non-believers in order to draw out their vulnerability and defeat them.
The narrative being sold here comes with a myriad of complicated messages:
America is needlessly paranoid about Muslims.
Muslims are victims of profiling.
Out of guilt for this, invite more Syrian refugees in to prove we’re not racist.
