What the Media Isn’t Telling You about the Muslim Clock Kid’s ‘Invention’

The mainstream media has been pressing the idea that a 14-year-old Muslim kid was wrongly imprisoned after bringing a fake clock to school.

But what if he’s actually lying about the clock?

From AV Artvoice Blog:

I’m an electronics geek. I was interested in the clock! I wanted to figure out what he had come up with.

I found the highest resolution photograph of the clock I could. Instantly, I was disappointed. Somewhere in all of this – there has indeed been a hoax. Ahmed Mohamed didn’t invent his own alarm clock. He didn’t even build a clock. Now, before I go on and get accused of attacking a 14 year old kid who’s already been through enough, let me explain my purpose. I don’t want to just dissect the clock. I want to dissect our reaction as a society to the situation. Part of that is the knee-jerk responses we’re all so quick to make without facts. So, before you scroll down and leave me angry comments, please continue to the end (or not – prove my point, and miss the point, entirely!)

For starters, one glance at the printed circuit board in the photo, and I knew we were looking at mid-to-late 1970s vintage electronics. Surely you’ve seen a modern circuit board, with metallic traces leading all over to the various components like an electronic spider’s web. You’ll notice right away the highly accurate spacing, straightness of the lines, consistency of the patterns. That’s because we design things on computers nowadays, and computers assist in routing these lines. Take a look at the board in Ahmed’s clock. It almost looks hand-drawn, right? That’s because it probably was. Computer aided design was in its infancy in the 70s. This is how simple, low cost items (like an alarm clock) were designed. Today, even a budding beginner is going to get some computer aided assistance – in fact they’ll probably start there, learning by simulating designs before building them.

He continues:

So I turned to eBay, searching for vintage alarm clocks. It only took a minute to locate Ahmed’s clock. See this eBay listing, up at the time of this writing. Amhed’s clock was invented, and built, by Micronta, a Radio Shack subsidary. Catalog number 63 756.

The shape and design is a dead give away. The large screen. The buttons on the front laid out horizontally would have been on a separate board – a large snooze button, four control buttons, and two switches to turn the alarm on and off, and choose two brightness levels. A second board inside would have contained the actual “brains” of the unit. The clock features a 9v battery back-up, and a switch on the rear allows the owner to choose between 12 and 24 hour time. (Features like a battery back-up, and a 24 hour time selection seems awful superfluous for a hobby project, don’t you think?) Oh, and about that “M” logo on the circuit board mentioned above? Micronta.

And the blogger continues to make some reasonable conclusions:

So there you have it folks, Ahmed Mohamad did not invent, nor build a clock. He took apart an existing clock, and transplanted the guts into a pencil box, and claimed it was his own creation. It all seems really fishy to me.

If we accept the story about “inventing” an alarm clock is made up, as I think I’ve made a pretty good case for, it’s fair to wonder what other parts of the story might be made up, not reported factually by the media, or at least, exaggerated.

I refer back again to this YouTube video interview with Ahmed. He explains that he closed up the box with a piece of cord because he didn’t want it to look suspicious. I’m curious, why would “looking suspicious” have even crossed his mind before this whole event unfolded, if he was truly showing off a hobby project, something so innocuous as an alarm clock. Why did he choose a pencil box, one that looks like a miniature briefcase no less, as an enclosure for a clock? It’s awful hard to see the clock with the case closed. On the other hand, with the case open, it’s awful dangerous to have an exposed power transformer sitting near the snooze button (unless, perhaps his invention was to stop serial-snooze-button pressers by giving them a dangerous electrical shock!)

And if you want to understand it verily easily without all that crazy reading, then watch this:

But hey don’t worry – Obama wants to bring in tens of thousands of Muslims from Syria, so stop worrying already!!

Also, completely ignore the fact that this kid’s dad is a CAIR official – it’s a complete coincidence!!!

    Gee, the government’s supporters were involved with a case of fraud. Unbelievable considering that they fairly study and present Global Warming…oh, wait a minute.
    I recommend the Climate Change video that follows the “invented radio” story.

    Islam leads straight to hell. The Koran is a demonic lie. Diarrhea Law should be flushed down the nearest toilet. The Bible states that Jesus saves and He alone.

    • Raylan Givens

      If you to understand the true heart of Islam, read the poetry of Rumi

      • YoOleMe

        … is that before, or during the decapitation?!?!

      • Seedman

        I do understand the deceitful heart of Islam since I have read the Koran. The inerrant Bible rightfully states that they worship demons. If I want to read poetry I read the book of Psalms.

  • Austinniceguy

    I no longer read stories about this raghead. He and his family are nothing more than race-baiters and the country fell for it. He could drop dead tonight and it wouldn’t mean a single thing to me. Personally I would prefer if all this curry smelling raghead trash went back to eating camel patties in their own sandbox.

  • Valor

    This nation is addicted to political correctness, which currently requires applauding Islam.

  • billybob

    And ignor the FACT his sister was disciplined for a bomb hoax, and she was the one spoon-feeding him the answers in the interview!

  • georgethorvat

    This just adds a new member to Obama’s family whereas this must be his newest son. You all already know who the other quasi sons are don’t you?

    • dcfla

      WELL…”SOME” OF US DO..THOSE “WITH” COMMON SENSE….APPARENTLY NOT TOO MANY HAVE THAT TRAIT OR GENE…HERE..ANYMORE..BUT..THERE ARE STILL MORE OF US THAN THERE ARE OF “THEM!”..& THEM…ENCOMPASSES MANY DIFFERENT “ONES”..NOT JUST “ONE GROUP”..

      • bobonitt

        would that be a traitorous trait or a congenital liars gene,seems to me the gene pool there is more like septic tank

    • NotJim

      “Quasi” sons would be the kind he’d have. More evidence of their relationship.

    • jerry young

      how many sons can one guy have? he brings them in by the boat load!

  • NotJim

    Back when Salman Rushdie’s Satanic Verses was first published, in a fit of misplaced PC “sensitive courtesy”, I somewhat piled on in sympathy with Ayatollah Khomeini’s being offended, and criticized Rushdie. I’ve apologized before, but I’m apologizing again. I’m still embarrassed.

    I don’t understand why the UK does not immediately deport Anjem Choudhary to any Middle East hellhole that’ll accept him (preferably, wherever he’s from). Go home, A$$hole.

  • flacko

    Another blunder by B O Trayvon Martin-FERGUSON -BALTIMORE and the beat goes on

  • DonRS

    From the beginning, this appeared to be a hoax, with far too many “coincidences”. The father’s role in CAIR, the sister’s actions, the fact, not included in this report, that it wasn’t until after the kid exposed his “invention” in 4 earlier classes, before a teacher became suspicious of the appearance of all the electronic components and wires of the “clock” in what appeared to be a brief case (breadboard assembled electronic items aren’t often packaged in a brief case) and the inconsistent answers provided teachers, administrators and police!

    This was nothing but a set up, to get even with the perceived “wrongs” done Muslims (it doesn’t take much for them to hold a grudge for HUNDREDS of years) in the area. And, must maybe make a little on a lawsuit.

    Of course, our head Muslim cheerleader (if not actually a Muslim, himself) Obama leapt IMMEDIATELY into action, denigrating the EVIL whites in Dallas that impugned the poor little innocent Muslim boy! “Facts, Obama don’t need no stinking facts,” Never has, unless the necessary action on his part is in opposition to his fundamental ideological beliefs, then he DITHERS for months and months, hoping the issue would just go away!

    16 more months of this TYRANNY!

    • YoOleMe

      … IF we have 16 months worth left?!? Albeit: It’s a simple matter of perspective:

      PRINT the phrase, “al-Taqiyya”, on your forehead, so you see it when you look in the mirror every a.m., and then: RECALL ITS MEANING – “deception; concealing or disguising one’s beliefs, convictions, ideas, feelings, opinions, and/or strategies” – EVERY TIME A MUSLIM MOVES ITS LIPS, IN FORMATION OF SPEECH IN RE ANY SUBJECT-MATTER – ESPECIALLY THAT OF ANY al-Taqiyya “Christian” KENYAN WHITE HOUSE SQUATTER, MUSLIM, TO WHICH YOU MAY BE EXPOSED!!! … Meanwhile, PRAY:

      God Speed His Holy Son’s promised return to cancel this lease, and reconstruct this planet anew, in His Holy Will!!!

  • True American

    (” IN MY OPINION”), I’m a white, home grown America. My Family goes back several generations in the USA. I’M, not a racist or a radical. I have had first hand experiences being around Muslims. I worked in the Middle East for a number of years and I have gotten to know VERY well what the Muslims are REALLY like! They in general Hate all American because most Americans are Christians, therefor we are All infidels and should Die. I would say at least between 85% to 95% plus are this way. Once again I am speaking from my own personal experiences being around and working with Muslims. I DO NOT TRUST ANY OF THEM. If you have done and been where I have been, you would feel the same way! (“END OF MY OPINION”)

    (” IN MY OPINION”) Having College degrees and working in the field of electronics for about 50 years now I can say with certainty that the clock could have been used as an triggering device! FACT! And it has now been on Yahoo that there has been ISIS terrorist that have come into the USA as a mole or covert ops. under some type of protection program granted to people escaping the hostilities in and or around the Middle East. These two individuals were caught making bombs alleged to use in terroristic attacks in the USA. I SAY, In the best interest of all American citizens and to the USA as well, that ALL Muslims an illegal aliens (ISIS has camps on the US border) to be deported at once, or because in my opinion there is probably going to be Muslims terrorist attacks in the USA. And the Muslims kid’s clocks could have been the start of it! Obama, should HAVE NEVER invited the Muslim kid to the White House, That was an complete, absolute and totally STUPID! To me it was like giving the OK for future clocks to be built! I think that Obama is a Muslim himself! (END OF ALL OF MY OPINIONS)

    • Raylan Givens

      What do you know about the Sufis?

  • rebeccadewhirst

    His father works for CAIR? enough said.

  • Lindy

    This was a test run to see how easy it would be to bring a supposedly harmless looking clock into the school and see what school administrators would do. Well, they acted appropriately by calling authorities because it looked exactly like a homemade bomb. Oh but then the Muslim supporting leftist media went ballistic and condemned the school and the authorities for picking on this so called innocent kid.

    • eagle keeper

      According to the press we already have free fire zones as far as guns go in schools. So why not start suicide bombings in schools? They do it in their home countries all the time. If we allow more of these lowlifes to migrate here this sort of thing will become the norm and not the exception.

  • iknowwhoyouare

    With Putin becoming the leader if the free world I should hope the American people wake up soon. I’m just saying the US has always played that roll, but not so much in today’s world

  • Peggie

    The fact that this was a clock sold by RadioShack was identified, the first day it came about. Don’t know why you went to all this trouble. The kid is no genius, he just moved the “innards” from one case to another. Probably a little suspicious, yes, meant to scare someone, but no harm done. Let’s forget about it, with all the major things going on in our White House. Who needs it??

  • Snufy

    Any idiot, (well, excluding Obama) can see that this thing is a model of a suitcase bomb.

  • Donald Clark

    Jaysus! Does this sonovabitch ever, ever tell the truth? No.
    Wake up, America, every day you hesitate to take down this fraud makes it harder.

    Where in the fuck is the United States Marine Corp? Waiting for me? I’m almost 87. Do your job, the bastard is guilty. If you don’t we’ll have to finish it.

    • Raylan Givens

      Take down what “fraud”?

      • YoOleMe

        … try the U.S. Constitution, Article II, Section 1, Clause [5] “natural born Citizen” KENYAN WHITE HOUSE SQUATTER, 2 x FRAUD, for openers!!!!!

  • Walter Flatt

    This government has been lying and doing everything to destroy this country and it is going to get worse. We have opened the door for Israel to bomb Iran and it will more than likely be with nukes. Of course is you know your Bible, this could be the starting of the end of time. If Israel does bomb Iran, then a Northern army will attack Israel and GOD will kill 3/4th of that army. SO, GET READY FOR ALL HELL TO BREAK LOOSE.

  • jerry young

    it says he didn’t invent the clock just took one apart and reassembled it into a pencil box, isn’t this what a bomb builder does? take apart a clock and make a timer out of it, in either case he lied and daddy probably helped him

      I think that is the reason he was sent there though the job was way too much for him. I thought there might be some intelligent Dimorats but I was wrong, they are traitors too.

  • Fred

    Now you can see that Mr.Obama is out to destroy this country. The kid is a Muslim so thats what he praises is the kid and his invention. He does not know the facts just that the Kid is Muslim This is our jerk in the White House,
    Are you Kidding?????

    • Debrarutherford

      Are you willing to say that to his Face, or like a Weasel, hide and talk S”IT.

    the dad is with CAIR? Imagine being suspicious of the son of a CAIR official. Silly me.

  • Bigmanuger

    Wonder if the little clock maker would have been invited to the house of Ovomit had he been a Christian or Jew.? What do ya think?

  • Jimmy

    To hell with shooting up a school, they want to see if they can get a contraption inside so they can blow the whole damn thing up.WAKE UP AMERICA

  • William L. Finucan

    This one did the same thing with a clock, as (ironically) the one of the same name, did with his book and teachings… A lesson before your eyes of the truth in so may ways…

  • DonRS

    Debrarutherford – no facts, really. Try reading just this blog, if you do, your knowledge of FACTS, determined after Obama’s mouthing off, will increase dramatically. So far, all you have done is EMOTE! Your beloved Obama had NO facts when he jumped on the situation, as usual. Now, there are all manner of facts supporting what I said.

    Obama, one of the smartest people – based on what, his ability to READ a speech written by someone else, so long as he has a teleprompter? LIsten to him speak without the teleprompter!

    Of course, your love for this tyrant overcomes your ability to consider the facts.

  • DonRS

    Debrarutherford,

    From how you write, what you write, and your history you write about, you are:1) Less experienced, 2) less well educated, 3) less well traveled (I’ve lived in the Southwest, multiple locations in the Northeast,, and now the West), 4) less well read and 5) less observant of reality. Other than that, I’m sure you have the best of intentions, its just that you are opinionated and uninformed.

    Jimmy Carter smiles every day, thanking God for the election of Obama, now proving to be the worst President, EVER. (what in the world does “D dooo!!! mean?)

  • DonRS

    Debrarutherford,
    Well, yes, “me be funny”. English must not your first language. Maybe not even your second. I fear you have no idea of FACTS, only your emotional attachment to the myth of Obama and “Hope and Change”. Of course, you might be one of the beneficiaries of Obama’s handouts, ObamaPhones, SNAP, Aid to dependent mothers, or just sucking on all the other government teets that make you so blind to reality – riding in the wagon, while the rest of us pull the wagon!Yes,

  • DonRS

    Debrarutherford,

    I be da man, so you mus be da Ho! Is yo booty a good ol’ bigun? I ain’t the receiver, I be da PAYOR! I thought I would try to use language you might understand!

  • DonRS

    Yes I do be funny! What be you?

  • DonRS

    Well, who gets paid for “thinking” is something about which you have no knowledge. However, it is clear you don’t get paid for writing, at least not English – maybe Ebola.

    Trading insults has been fun.

  • DonRS

    You are correct, I’m not nearly as proficient in the use of non-English as clearly you are. But I was convinced you would understand gibberish. Being so “rich” spend a little on learning and writing English.

  • DonRS

    Do you have a clue what “proficient” means? I certainly hope your kids were able to overcome your “teachings”.
