CDC director’s Ebola response is disturbing

The CDC has taken some heat for not restricting travel to areas in West Africa currently experiencing massive ebola outbreaks. They have consistently attempted to reassure the American public that everything is under control - but that all went out the window when the Ebola virus landed in Texas. Why haven't they shut down or heavily restricted travel? Neil Cavuto asked, and the answer did not inspire much confidence.

CDC Director Thomas Friedman told Cavuto, "We want to make sure that we do don't anything that backfires, because if you stop travel, if you isolate these countries, it makes it a lot harder to get help in, the disease spreads more there. It may spread to other countries in Africa and ultimately we may be dealing with this for years on end. We have to stop it at the source, or we won't be able to protect people."

Cavuto wasn't convinced. He said, ": But isn't the risk with, if they fly here -- I understand, sir. But isn't the risk that, if they fly here, you have already hit the risk jackpot, right? I mean, they're here, they're exposed, they might not have been exhibiting symptoms at the time, but they do, and they have, and they are, and they're here, and we have got a problem?"

"This is so easy. We've done it before," Glenn said. "'Have you been to West Africa? Can I see your passport? You've been to West Africa? Great. You over here for 25 days.' You stay over there for 25 days. We isolate you away from the shores of America for 25 days. It's just that easy. It's really not -- we don't have to shut everything off."

Glenn said we need to put anyone who has been over in West Africa and entering the country under observation for twenty-five days to monitor for signs of Ebola.

"And that is a significant inconvenience," Stu said. "That is the price you pay to avoid an epidemic or pandemic of Ebola. Yes, yes, I'm sorry, you're gonna have a few weeks that are inconvenient."

"It's common sense. It's certainly possible that we don't understand the way this disease works or whatever and there could be a reason why you would allow it or something. Because we're not medical professionals. But they obviously don't have one. They continue to keep saying these things that make absolutely no sense. Well, we don't know if we can get people in there. We're not saying you can't put people there. We're not saying you can't help fly health workers there," Stu added.

Glenn Beck: THIS is why Biden nominated Merrick Garland as attorney general

Many will remember President Biden's attorney general nominee Merrick Garland as the man Republicans refused to hold a Supreme Court confirmation hearing for back in 2016. So, was Garland's AG nomination just meant to be a slap in the face to Republicans? Glenn Beck thinks there's a lot more to it.

Given how focused Democrats are on rooting out vaguely defined "right-wing extremism," Garland's work in supervising the prosecution of the 1995 Oklahoma City bombing suspects gives us a hint, Glenn suggested on radio this week. He said he's "all for" stopping dangerous extremists, but couldn't help noticing how Garland isn't talking about any of the destruction that happened over the summer.

"I am all for justice. I am all for making sure we catch the bad guys, as long as the bad guys are not defined to be on only one side," Glenn said. "Merrick Garland said [Monday] that there was no comparison between what happened on January 6th and what happened over the summer. That is because the Washington elites see themselves as better than somebody who owns a taco stand. I don't. The Constitution doesn't. They are the same crime."

"All rich countries should move to 100% synthetic beef. You can get used to the taste difference," said holy anointed billionaire Bill Gates. Green activism has been around for decades. But what used to be wacky has now worked its way into the world's power structure. You must believe the science. You cannot question the science.

The Texas power failure provided America with a disturbing and deadly preview of the Great Reset. But Bill Gates, AOC, and other Democrats say this only proves we need to enforce MORE green policies.

On his Wednesday night special this week, Glenn Beck reveals how deep the Great Reset tentacles reach into government and business to strangle freedom and their efforts to control every aspect of your private life.

Why are we letting criminals out of prison while putting pastors in? Pastor James Coates of Canada's GraceLife Church was recently fined, arrested, and put in maximum security prison for violating lockdown rules.

Rebel News founder Ezra Levant joined Glenn Beck on "Glenn TV" to discuss the story. Ezra said he's noticed a trend of government officials "picking on" Christians as "lockdownism" becomes almost a new kind of religion, and warned this might be just the start of more persecution to come.
