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.

It should come as no surprise that a newsworthy story receives more media coverage when released on a Monday than a Friday. The reason is in part due to a large number of news-consuming Americans checking out for the week to focus on their weekend plans rather than the news.

On Monday's radio program, Glenn Beck shared information that President Joe Biden decided to release on Friday — when fewer people would notice — regarding the Climate Finance report. This report is marketed to Americans as "A Roadmap To Build a Climate-Resilient Economy." But Glenn believes the report to be Biden's Great Reset warning shot to banks.

In this clip, Glenn warned that if Americans don't stand together, in eight years we all indeed will own nothing. Watch the clip for the full story. Can't watch? Download the podcast here.

On today's radio program, Glenn Beck was joined by Bill O'Reilly to discuss the top stories of the week.

For O'Reilly, the biggest story this week centered around someone mysteriously missing from mainstream media news reports today: Mark Zuckerberg. Specifically, O'Reilly said it's the 'scandalous' way the Facebook CEO spent nearly $420 million to influence the 2020 election — and did so successfully.

On Thursday's radio program, Grace Smith and her father, Andy, joined Glenn Beck on the phone and provided a first-hand account of Grace's refusal to wear a mask at school.

Smith, 16, began a maskless protest after her school district in Laramie, Wyoming, decided to implement a mask mandate. As a result, Grace received three suspensions, was issued two $500-citations, and was eventually arrested.

"How long were you in jail?" Glenn asked.

Grace said was taken to jail but was never booked nor was she was placed in a jail cell.

Glenn commended Grace's father, Andy, for raising such a "great citizen" and asked if it was Grace's idea to protest. Andy said it was Grace's idea, explaining that they took the position of arguing on the grounds of civil rights rather than the efficacy of wearing a mask.

Grace has since withdrawn from public school and started a home school program. She also told Glenn that she will continue to fight the school district, legally.

It seems the Left wants a civil war and some on the Right want a national divorce. The country is split right now unlike anything Glenn Beck has ever witnessed. There are two sides: Those who want to fundamentally change this country and those who believe in KEEPING the experiment of liberty that the Founding Founders intended.

The ideological gap seems impossible to cross, but Glenn explains why he won't secede. David Reaboi, Claremont Institute senior fellow and author of "National Divorce Is Expensive, but It's Worth Every Penny," tells Glenn why a national breakup is not an impossibility just because it will be difficult.

What can we do to fight back … peacefully? How can the states that still believe in the Constitution create pockets of freedom in the shadow of tyranny? On his Wednesday night special this week, Glenn answers that and provides a road map to preserving what the Left is trying to destroy.

Finally, James Simpson, author of "Who Was Karl Marx? The Men, the Motives and the Menace Behind Today's Rampaging American Left," provides solutions on the issues the "red states" must unite around before Left and Right America officially call it quits.
