Who has a better plan to handle Ebola: Politicians or a half-asleep Glenn Beck?

How should the United States government be handling the news that Ebola is now here in the United States? Glenn thinks the solutions aren’t that difficult to figure out - in fact, he’s willing to bet he could solve them in his sleep. Well, not in his sleep, but in the middle of the night when he’s half asleep. Are Glenn’s half asleep solutions better?

Before going into the plan, Glenn expressed his frustration with so many people mocking his prediction that Ebola would come to Texas.

"The problem though, Glenn, you make so many predictions. So many of them. Caliphate is coming to the Middle East. Oh, the economy is going to collapse. So many of them are so ridiculous, that when you get one right luckily that you did here, it's hard to process," Stu joked.

"The point was: You can't have people flying back and forth. Why are we letting -- why are we hiring people, why are we letting people fly back and forth from West Africa? It's a really bad idea.

And because Texas has such a high number of people doing it, it probably seems like a hot zone. Now, I didn't know the guy's name was Bert or whatever his name was. You're right. I got that one wrong. He wasn't a prison guard. But everything else I had right," Glenn said.

Glenn wrote on his Facebook page last night:

Who was it that made fun of me, called me crazy and a fear monger WITHIN THE LAST TWO WEEKS, for saying that Texas was a possible outbreak sight of Ebola due to prison guards (1/3 are from Africa) and the border? Mocked again for a logical argument while the administration said it would be highly unlikely that we would EVER have a case in the us!

When will America recognize that this president's advisors and his gut are almost against all odds bad?

Tomorrow we will have a look at what this means and what we all need to know and do.

1. Don't panic.

2. Stop listening to those who continue to get it wrong.

Just remember, your life and, quite frankly, the life of our republic, economy and the western way of life are in the hands of a group of people who told you:

Al Qaeda is over. (Khorasan bombed last week because they are an imminent homeland threat.)

ISIS is a JV league team. (Currently a global threat.)

Oklahoma beheading was "workplace violence".

The world would be safer if Libya and Egypt had new leadership.

A caliphate was laughable, ridiculous and a fantasy.

They knew who the bad guys were in Syria and we should arm them.

Ebola would not come to our shores.

The border is more secure than ever.

The Secret Service was doing a good job.

Russia was not a threat.

There are no radical Muslims in the U.S. unless they are lone wolves.

Wake up! On 60 Minutes, he said it was the intel community that failed us. They got the Middle East wrong.

If it is true, why hasn't he asked for the resignations of people like James Clapper?

If they were wrong, Mr. President, when will you replace them? They weren't mildly wrong. They were WILDLY wrong.

America, think of the things that are still out there: the IRS, NSA scandal, Benghazi, reporters and whistle blower scandals.

How about the printing of all this money? 4 trillion dollars?! He said, there will be no inflation. Does the price of meat and milk reflect this truth?

Do you trust that the government is actually watching the right things and has done what we need to keep us safe?

Pray for our country and her citizens.

Pray for our president and his family. The Secret Service is out of control. The agents know it the field. It is the management that is wildly irresponsible.

In light of all that, Glenn decided to see who was better at giving the American advice. Is it the politicians and advisors who routinely get it wrong? Or Glenn when he wakes up from a dead sleep?

I think I am going to try something new:

FROM A DEAD SLEEP.

You ask me a question and when I wake up from a dead sleep I will answer a question.

Let's see if I can do better than those advisors and politicians who are supposedly wide awake.

Topics can range full spectrum.

Ebola? What to do?

From a dead sleep.

Non-essential travel ban from west Africa.

Secure the border. Stop all people from coming over north and south, but especially the out of control south.

Put out clear and concise symptom chart, etc., from the oval saying not to panic, but information helps people feel like they have more control and they would. Because when we find patient two or three, people will begin to panic.

I would also, in that same address, tell people to calmly get food storage, have some cash on hand and fuel in your tank.

Now, because I am waking from a dead sleep, I may not be thinking clearly enough to realize the ramifications of a presidential address and the panic that might ensue. But at this point, I am the president and people have already heard my warnings before, so they are a little dead inside from presidential panic due to how I handled Putin and Isis from a dead sleep, so they are already prepared.

Oh, I also tell my friends that they should remember the dome in New Orleans. Whatever the fed tells you to do, go or gather: DONT.

Now leave me alone, I have got to get some sleep.

Good advice, right.

Now, there is absolutely nothing that could go wrong with this new half-asleep column, right?

"I just want to make sure that I'm clear to America that I foresee no negative consequences of you answering emails in the middle of the morning from a dead sleep. I can't see one negative consequence that could possibly come out of that. I want to make sure that everyone knows that there's no way that it could go wrong. It's impossible that something could go wrong in that situation," Stu joked.

"Sometimes I'm going to get these things wrong," Glenn said laughing.

Check out the first installment from Facebook, accompanied by a lovely photo of Glenn:

On Monday's episode of "The Glenn Beck Radio Program," Glenn opened up about the tragic death of his brother-in-law, Vincent Colonna Jr., who passed away unexpectedly on April 5. He also shared some of the important thoughts and insights he's learned through the grieving process.

"Last Monday, I was sitting in this chair ... the two-minute warning comes and Stu said to me, 'You ready for the show?'' ... And that's when my wife [Tania] came to the door of the studio here at our house and said, 'I...' and she held the phone up. And then she collapsed on the floor in tears," Glenn began. "Tania's brother had passed. To say this was a shock, is an understatement."

Glenn described his brother-in-law as having "a servant's spirit."

"He was always the guy who lit up the room. He was always the guy helping others. He would never stop, because he was always helping others," Glenn said of Vincent. "He was on the school board. He was a little league coach. He was the soccer coach. He helped build the church. He took care of the lawn of the church. He was constantly doing things, raising money for charity, working over here, helping to organize this. But he was never the guy in the spotlight. He was just the guy doing it, and you had no idea how much he had done because he never talked about it.

"We also didn't know how much mental anguish he was in because he never talked about it. And last Monday morning, after spending Easter with the family ... he killed himself. This is now the third family member of mine that has gone through this. And I keep seeing it play out over and over and over again, in exactly the same way."

Glenn described his thoughts as he, Tania, and her family struggled to come to grips with the devastating loss.

"I learned some really important things as I was watching this wake. I'm seeing these people from all walks of life ... the people that were there, were there because [Vince] made a difference in their life. He was a true servant. As I'm watching this, all that kept going through my mind was, 'by their fruits, ye shall know them.' The fruits of his labor were on display. He was a servant all the time. All the time ... he found a way to love everybody.

"There are two great commandments: Love God with all your heart and mind and soul. And love your neighbor. So those two great commandments boil down to: Love truth. Because that's what God is," Glenn said.

"Love thy neighbor. That's where joy comes from. The opposite of joy is despair, and that is the complete absence of hope ... and how do you find joy? You find joy by rooting yourself in the truth. Even if that's a truth you don't want to accept. Accept the truth," he added. "But we have to stop saying that there's nothing we can do. What are we going to do? Well, here's the first thing: stop living a lie."

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!"
