Obama won't declare war on ISIS, but he is declaring war on… Ebola?

The American people still cannot get a straight answer from the Obama Administration as to whether or not we are at war with the Islamic State. While President Obama may not be keen on declaring war on ISIS (or ISIL, or DAISH, or whatever you want to call it), he is prepared to declare war on… Ebola.

On Tuesday, Obama is expected to deliver a speech at the Center for Disease Control and Prevention in Atlanta, where he will urge Congress to approve an $88 million plan that includes sending portable hospitals, doctors and health-care experts, and medical supplies to the west African nations hit hardest by the Ebola outbreak.

Liberia has been one of the hardest hit countries. On Friday, the World Health organization reported there were 4,366 Ebola cases reported as of September 7 - including 2,218 deaths. Last month, WHO said it hoped to control the outbreak within nine months and predicted there would be 20,000 total cases by that time.

While two American aid workers have been successfully cured of the disease, you may remember Glenn was less than thrilled about bringing infected patients back to the United States. To add insult to injury, Glenn explained TheBlaze is currently investigating a tip it received from a reader about an influx of Nigerians entering the U.S. and going to work in Texas.

"Due to an extreme shortage of prison guards in Texas, prisons are so desperate for employees that they started looking outside the country," Glenn said. "Where are they from? Well, there are a substantial number of prison guards from Mexico and Nigeria."

While Glenn could probably devote an entire hour to the corruption of the Mexican prison system, Nigerian workers present a unique challenge.

"We are hiring people from Nigeria who are going back and forth to their country. Doesn't really seem like a good policy for a lot of reasons. But, again, what pops out is Ebola," Glenn said exasperatedly. "Call me crazy, but letting Nigerians roam freely in and out of our country as they work as correctional officers in prisons - also in transportation and food service - might seem like something we should look into."

Editor's Note: We will bring you details of TheBlaze's investigation as they become available.

Since Pat and Stu have consistently said they are not particularly concerned about the Ebola threat, Glenn thought it was a good idea to send them to Houston for a live report from a state penitentiary. Let's just say Pat wasn't looking to good by the time Glenn had a chance to speak to him.

After imprisoning a pastor for refusing to follow COVID-19 restrictions, Canadian officials barricaded his church. And when some church members retaliated by tearing down part of the fence, Canadian Mounties arrived in riot gear.

Rebel News Founder Ezra Levant joined Glenn Beck on the radio program to give his insight on the crazy situation. He described the new, armed police presence surrounding GraceLife Church in Edmonton, Alberta, and how it not only encouraged hundreds of protesters to stand with the church in support but forced congregation members underground to worship as well.

What's happening is eerily similar to what occurs everyday in China, Levant says, and it must stop. Who would have thought this type of tyranny would be so close to home?

Watch the video below to hear Ezra describe the religious persecution taking place in Canada.

Enough prayers? Why is supposed Catholic Joe Biden suggesting that Congress ought to stop praying for after someone commits acts of gun violence?

On Friday, Stu Burguiere and Pat Gray filled in for Glenn and discussed President Joe Biden's remarks during his speech on gun control. "Enough prayers. Time for some action," Biden said. Stu and Pat were surprised how dismissive Biden appeared to be on the idea of prayer.

Just days after Canadian pastor James Coates was released from prison for refusing to bow to COVID-19 lockdown restrictions, several police officers showed up at another church to ensure restrictions were being followed. But Polish pastor Artur Pawlowski of the Cave of Adullam Church in Alberta, Canada, knew his rights, telling the cops not to come back until they had a warrant in hand.

Filling in for Glenn Beck on the radio program this week, Pat Gray and Stu Burguiere played a video of the interaction.

"Please get out. Please get out of this property immediately. Get out!" Pawlowski can be heard yelling at the six officers who entered his church.

"Out! Out! Out! Get out of this property immediately until you come back with a warrant," he continued. "Go out and don't come back. I don't want to talk to you. You Nazis, Gestapo is not allowed here! ... Nazis are not welcome here! Do not come back you Nazi psychopaths. Unbelievable sick, evil people. Intimidating people in a church during the Passover! You Gestapo, Nazi, communist fascists! Don't you dare come back here!"

One of the most dangerous existential threats to the United States is Critical Race Theory, or CRT. As Glenn Beck has exposed over the past year, CRT is gaining momentum and has been preached in our universities for a while now.

Then last August, leaked documents revealed that Marxism, activist ideology of Black Lives Matter, is making its way into grade school classrooms across the country. And since then, things have only gotten more intense.

On next week's Wednesday night special, Glenn will expose the new ways progressives are systematically indoctrinating our kids and culture with this dangerous ideology. But first, it's crucial that you know what your kids may already be learning.

"What I'm about to show you is just the beginning," Glenn said, introducing the leaked documents.

"I found it shocking that Black Lives Matter supporters have developed lesson plans that start from preschool all the way up to the 12th grade," he continued. "Do you know the money it would take to tailor things ... and get it out to the schools and the unions for each age, to be able to brainwash the kids on Marxism and how to destroy capitalism by using race, sexual orientation, and gender?

"Our children don't stand a chance," Glenn added later. "They're not being taught anything except how to be radical activists. What the hell has happened?"
