Rand Paul: We need to have a discussion without political correctness

Glenn interviewed Senator Rand Paul on radio today to talk about some key elections and the outbreak of the Ebola virus here in the United States. Paul thinks it’s a huge mistake to downplay the threat of an epidemic, and believes political correctness is what’s hampering a real discussion from taking place.

"I think it's a real mistake to underplay the danger of a worldwide pandemic. I think I said this the last time I was on your show a couple weeks ago, I said that I'm concerned that political correctness has caused us to underplay the threat of Ebola," Paul said.

"I do think you have to be concerned. It's an incredibly transmissible disease that everyone is downplaying, saying it's hard to catch. Well, we have physicians and health workers who are catching it who are completely gloved down and taking every precaution and they're still getting it. So, yes, I'm very concerned about this. I think at the very least there needs to be a discussion about airline travel between the countries that have the raging disease," he added.

Switching topics, Glenn asked Rand Paul what he thought of the recent news surrounding the President's Secret Service.

"Well, the good news is the president is probably playing golf. If there's good security at the golf course, he probably could be safe there," Paul said. "It just gets back to the fundamental and inherent problem of government in general, just getting the government to work well. You would think the security of the president is something we could figure out."

Finally, Glenn asked Sen. Paul what the worst thing President Obama was doing. Surprisingly, it wasn't just one issue, but a serial usurpation of Congress and expanding the powers of the Executive Office.

"People ask me all the time, we get to talk about Obamacare all the time and Dodd-Frank, and what's the worse thing the president is doing? It's not specific legislation. It's usurping power. It's him using powers that were never intended to be his, and it's him breaking down the fundamental separatiton of powers and checks and balances that the Republic is founded upon. That's the real danger here. He's done it with immigration law that he's doing by executive fiat. He's done it with healthcare, that he's amending on his own. He's taken us to war in Libya and now the latest war without congressional approval. So, yeah, that's the biggest problem facing us," Paul said.

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?"
