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.

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:
