Should Ebola patients be treated in the United States?

On Saturday, Dr. Kent Brantly, one of two American aid workers infected with the Ebola virus, returned to the United States. Brantly landed at Dobbins Air Reserve Base in Georgia and was transported via ambulance to Emory University Hospital, where he will be treated. As the Associated Press reported, this marks the first time a person infected with Ebola – an incurable, deadly virus – has been brought to the U.S.

While the Center for Disease Control has maintained the Atlanta hospital and its workers are equipped to handle the patients, on radio this morning, Glenn, Pat, and Stu debated whether or not it was wise to return Brantly and his compatriot to the U.S.

Glenn explained he has “huge respect” for the Brantly, who contracted the virus while he was in Africa treating Ebola patients. At the same time, Glenn wondered if the U.S. could have sent the necessary treatment to Brantly in Africa, instead of returning him to the U.S.

“I hate to go back to this Ebola thing and I really have respect for the guy,” Glenn said. “But I'm just saying: Do we need more logs on the fire… We have the resources to bring everything that they would possibly need to them… Fly a C-131 transport plane. Get it over there. Put all your equipment in it. You don't need to be treated in an American hospital. We'll bring the hospital to you.”

Stu, however, was not convinced.

“I would assume there are time constraints on that one. It's not ready to go right now. There's a facility [in the U.S.] ready to go. There are a few that can treat this sort of thing,” Stu countered. “Supposedly the treatment is already helping. What are we going to do? Let this guy go over there and let him die? You have to take precautions realizing this is an awful disease, but we should be able to seal up one guy and fly him over here. It should not be impossible.”

While Stu's logic sounds reasonable, you may recall the CDC admitted just last month that it had discovered six vials of smallpox at a Food and Drug Administration storage facility in Maryland. This blunder followed a June report in which 80 CDC workers were accidently exposed to anthrax in a laboratory. The recent errors gave Glenn pause.

“You're talking about bringing him into a major population center,” Glenn said of Brantly. “Wasn't it about a month ago… there was something lost? You're saying to me, ‘You know, Glenn, it seems like we should be able to…’ Yes, we should. But…”

Ultimately, Stu found himself feeling like that guy in the movies who tells everyone ‘everything is going to be fine’ before half the population ends up dying of some incurable disease.

“We were having that serious conversation about Ebola,” Stu concluded. “And I'm the idiot in the movie who said, ‘No, we should be able to seal the frickin' guy off. What's the big deal? Nothing is going to happen.’”

On the radio program Friday, Glenn Beck discussed the recent news that a primary source for the Steele Dossier — the document on which much of the Trump-Russia collusion investigation was based — had been investigated by the FBI for contacts with suspected Russian spies. Glenn also shared several previously unpublished texts and emails from FBI agents have recently been released.

According to a letter sent by Attorney General William Barr to Senate Judiciary Committee Chairman Lindsey Graham (R-S.C.) on Thursday, the FBI knew early on that the research compiled by ex-British intelligence agent Christopher Steele relied on a "Primary Sub-source" that had been "the subject of an FBI counterintelligence investigation from 2009 to 2011 that assessed his or her contacts with suspected Russian intelligence officers" — but still used it to obtain warrants to spy on former Trump campaign-aide Carter Page.

But, it gets even worse. Now, new leaked texts and communications from FBI agents within the department at the time of the entire Russian collusion effort were disclosed in federal court filings on Thursday. According to the court documents, FBI agents purchased "professional liability insurance" to protect themselves in January 2017, just weeks before Donald Trump was inaugurated president, because they were concerned about the agency's potentially illegal activity during the Russia collusion investigation.

"Trump was right," one FBI employee wrote in response to then-President-elect Trump's Jan 3, 2017 tweet which read: "The 'Intelligence' briefing on so-called 'Russian hacking' was delayed until Friday, perhaps more time needed to build a case. Very strange!"

Chief researcher Jason Buttrill joined Glenn Beck on the radio program Thursday to discuss an "explosive" new report released Wednesday by Senate Republicans on Democratic presidential nominee Joe Biden's son, Hunter Biden, and the Ukrainian energy company Burisma.

Among other serious allegations, the 87-page report claims that "Hunter Biden received a $3.5 million wire transfer from Elena Baturina, the wife of the former mayor of Moscow," and the richest woman in Russia.

"The transactions discussed [in the report] are designed to illustrate the depth and extent of some questionable financial transactions. Moreover, the financial transactions illustrate serious counterintelligence and extortion concerns relating to Hunter Biden and his family," the report stated.

Jason suggested the Senate's findings provide additional evidence to back allegations of a money-laundering scheme, which Glenn detailed in a four-part series about Biden's shady connections to Ukraine. Learn more on this here.

"Laundered money is very hard to track to its finality," Jason explained. "I'm sure the Biden camp is really hoping that it just looks suspicious, but [investigators] don't ever find the eventual end point. But, if they do – and it's possible they already have – this is going to be explosive, very explosive."

Revolutions rarely happen overnight. The Left started laying the groundwork for November 3, 2020, the moment Hillary Clinton had to concede the 2016 election to Donald Trump. It was always solely about getting rid of President Trump — and there's a playbook for that.

Last week, Glenn Beck showed you the "Seven Pillars of Color Revolution" written by a former U.S. diplomat, which are the conditions that must be in place for a successful Eastern European-style "Color Revolution." The left seems to be pushing for a Color Revolution this election because they are using the exact same playbook.

In part two of this series, Glenn peels back the layers on the first four of these Color Revolution pillars to show you how they work and what the end goal is. And he reveals one of the architects of the playbook – a Color Revolution specialist, former ambassador, and former Obama administration official who is one of the key masterminds of this revolution.

Joining Glenn is political campaign veteran and BlazeTV host Steve Deace who says the polls that claim Biden is leading the race "are trash." We're being set up to believe that if Trump wins in spite of the polls, it must be an invalid election.

Sen. Ted Cruz: NOBODY should be afraid of Trump's Supreme Court justice pick

Sen. Ted Cruz (R-Texas) joined Glenn Beck on the radio program Wednesday to weigh in on President Donald Trump's potential Supreme Court nominees and talk about his timely new book, "One Vote Away: How a Single Supreme Court Seat Can Change History."

Sen. Cruz argued that, while Congressional Democrats are outraged over President Trump's chance at a third court appointment, no one on either side should be afraid of a Supreme Court justice being appointed if it's done according to the founding documents. That's why it's crucial that the GOP fills the vacant seat with a true constitutionalist.
