Preparing for Ebola? Hear Glenn’s message to his son-in-law in Dallas

Glenn's son-in-law wrote a panic laced email when hearing the news that ebola had arrived in Dallas, Texas. Now what? He asked Glenn how we can prepare for this -- if we can prepare at all. Check out the response he wrote back.

"So my son-in-law writes me last night. 'Dad, yikes. How can we prepare for this?'" Glenn read.

Glenn wrote:

I was mocked four weeks ago by the press saying Texas was a huge target for Ebola. If only someone else would listen.

Son, the best thing to do is have cash on hand. Lots of food in storage and be ready to go if needed. These things will unfortunately come. But they are going to come all over the world. No place will be different. There's no safe zone from what's going to happen.

If things get really bad, everyone will have a plan. But I do not think this is imminient in such a way to panic.

I'm always wrong on timing. But with that said, make sure that you do not need to go to the store for food and fuel. That's an essential step. Have your emergency food storage and medical supplies ready.

I would bet that on case number two, panic will begin. Don't panic. Know that all will be well. But as I've said for a while now, and so it begins.

"I want you to know, you shouldn't hoard anything. What you should do right now if you haven't already, be prepared for -- just think of a pandemic. People don't understand what that means. The guy who was just cured from this, and by itself we're making serum so if this really happens, there's not a chance in hell the average person gets serum. There's not enough serum for this. But pandemics, I believe it was one in every ten people were affected by the Spanish flu in America. Almost every household had someone die in 1918 and 1919.

That's how intense it was. They couldn't keep up with it. That's what a pandemic means."

"When that happens, you do get quarantined. You can get the whole place. You know, a town, a ZIP code, a house, a family. You just get quarantined. If it's bad enough, you get quarantined in your home."

"Now, if that's happening, what does that mean for you? That means: You better have food. You better have water. You better have some sort of alternative fuel: Electricity, logs, anything. You should have gold or silver or cash on hand because what happens if the banks -- in a pandemic, it could very easily close. Your malls, your stores will close."

These isn't just helpful information to prepare for Ebola, but anything so you aren't left to panic when something unexpected happens.

"You do these things now so you're prepared and you're not panicking. When my son wrote to me, if we weren't prepared, I would have panicking. It's in Dallas. I would have been panicking. I know I have a plan, and he knows we have a plan. Follow the plan, and it doesn't involve panic," Glenn said.

Protests following the fatal police shooting of Walter Wallace Jr quickly devolved into violence, rioting, and looting in Philadelphia, and BlazeTV's Elijah Schaffer was there to document what the mainstream media won't. But while filming the carnage inside a Five Below on Tuesday, Elijah was surrounded and attacked by looters.

Elijah joined Glenn Beck on the radio program Wednesday to detail his experience and to explain why mainstream media efforts to downplay the violence just show that independent media has never been more important.

"Unfortunately, [the attack] escalated from one person to about a dozen very quickly," Elijah explained. "I'm actually really happy to be alive. Because in that same shopping center, right there, there was a 15-year-old girl who was shot, according to reports. And I heard multiple gunshots throughout the night. Another individual is reported to have heard a gunshot as well, so we try to confirm. I watched people get pummeled beyond belief."

Glenn asked Elijah to respond to mainstream media claims that conservatives are exaggerating the looting and violence in Philadelphia.

"It's so funny to hear people that aren't there try to counter what we're reporting," Elijah replied.

In the final days before the 2020 election, President Donald Trump is gaining among black voters, particularly men, because his record of accomplishments "speaks for itself" and the "façade" that President Trump is a racist "just doesn't ring true," argued sports columnist Jason Whitlock on "The Glenn Beck Radio Program" Tuesday.

Jason, who recently interviewed the president at the White House for OutKick.com, shared his thoughts on why he believes many black Americans — notably celebrities such as Kanye West, Ice Cube, and 50 Cent — are breaking from the "façade" that President Trump is a "flaming racist."

"I really believe the facts are starting to speak for themselves, and that Donald Trump's record of accomplishments, particularly as it relates to African Americans, speaks for itself," Jason told Glenn. "He actually has a record to stand on, unlike even Barack Obama. When [Obama] was president, I don't think he had much of a record to stand on, in terms of, 'Hey, what did he actually deliver for African Americans?' President Trump has things he can stand on and, you know, beyond that I think black people understand when he starts talking about black unemployment rate. And America's unemployment rate. And then, when you add in for black men, the façade we've been putting on [President Trump] … you know, this whole thing that he's some flaming racist, it just doesn't ring true."

Jason suggested that Trump's fearlessness, unabashed masculinity, and record of keeping his promises resonates with men in the black community. He also weighed in on how media and social media's bias plays a huge role in convincing people to hate President Trump while ignoring Antifa and others on the Left.

"I keep explaining to people, Twitter, Instagram, Facebook, they're some of the most secular places on earth. And we've reduced everyone to a tweet, that we disagree with," he added.

Megyn Kelly is not happy about the "disgusting" media coverage of President Donald Trump, specifically pointing to Lesley Stahl's "60 Minutes" interview on CBS Sunday.

On the radio program, Megyn told Glenn Beck the media has become so blinded by the "Trump Derangement Syndrome" that they've lost their own credibility — and now they can't get it back.

"It's disgusting. It's stomach-turning," Megyn said of the media's coverage of the president. "But it's just a continuation of what we've seen over the past couple of years. Their 'Trump Derangement Syndrome' has blinded them to what they're doing to their own credibility. They can't get it back. It's too late. They've already sacrificed it. And now no one is listening to them other than the hard partisans for whom they craft their news."

Megyn also discussed how she would have covered the recent stories about Hunter and Joe Biden's alleged corruption. Watch the video below to catch more of the conversation:
