Second nurse with Ebola called CDC before flight, they approved travel

Just when you thought the CDC couldn’t get any dumber, they go and knowingly give travel permissions to an infected healthcare worker. While the CDC and now the President continue to reassure Americans, the increasing incompetence by all those in charge isn’t helping ease fears.

"Now, what is the CDC doing? They're now saying they're not only going to monitor all the people that have come across Ebola, they're not allowing them -- and let me quote this because, remember, we're not going to stop any flights from West Africa. But here in America, they are going to follow, quote, the minimum guidelines outlined. The minimum guidelines outlined by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention by blocking those being monitored for Ebola from using any public transportation, including airliners and buses," Glenn said.

"So here's the worst thing, we told you yesterday, their credibility is only going to get worse and worse on this. The president needs to fire the guy at the top of the CDC, and somebody needs to take charge of this. This is outrageous what's going on. This is why you don't want a big government because the big government gets so bloated and so bureaucratic that the one hand doesn't even know what the other hand is doing. There's nobody in charge of this stuff."

"Yesterday we said, what was this nurse thinking? This nurse is with an Ebola patient. She gets on a flight and goes to Cleveland with a fever," he continued. "What was she even thinking? Our apologies to this nurse. This nurse knew enough when she had a fever, she called the Center for Disease Control. She checked in and she said: Hey, I was with the nurse that is now has Ebola. I was with her. I was in that same room. I now have a fever. Should I get on this plane? They said: Yep."

CBS News reported:

The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention said that Vinson called the agency several times before flying, saying that she had a fever with a temperature of 99.5 degrees. But because her fever wasn’t 100.4 degrees or higher, she didn’t officially fall into the group of “high risk” and was allowed to fly.

Officials in the U.S. have been trying to calm fears over the Ebola crisis, but time and again events have overtaken their assurances.

Glenn warned that this was just another example of government incompetence, and said that people need to be wary of the government telling people to gather certain places in order to deal with the crisis. He recalled Hurricane Katrina and people going to the SuperDome, which was ill equipped to handle the influx of people who came seeking shelter.

"The government said after it was all too late, come to the SuperDome because we got everything under control there. Did they?" Glenn said. "This could save your life: Whatever the government says: Hey, everybody come over here. Don't go over. Don't go over.

The far left is tearing apart the social fabric of our country in the name of "progress." From its emphasis on government dependency, to the $15 minimum wage, to the embrace of Marxist Critical Race Theory in our schools, the Left is destroying our culture and way of life.

On Glenn TV this week, Glenn Beck spoke with Christopher Rufo, director of the Center on Wealth and Poverty, about the latest insane example of the Marxist lies destroying the minds of our kids: A New York school sent parents a "white identities" chart advocating for "white traitors" and "white abolitionists."

There is an all-out assault on the social fabric of our country. The kids are NOT all right. In the name of "progress," we're destroying their minds with Marxist lies. In the name of "safety," we're destroying their souls by keeping them locked down.

On his Glenn TV special this week, Glenn Beck takes on the national suicide that the Left is committing by destroying our culture and way of life and how it's also leading to actual suicide of our kids. Experts on the front lines expose how the lies of critical race theory are crippling our children's future and provide tools for parents to fight back.

Finally, Glenn hears from a parent who tragically lost his teen son, who took his own life due to COVID isolation. He has a powerful message for parents, teachers, and politicians who he says are failing our kids.

With as much gas and oil as Texas has — and not to mention its own power grid — why in the world is Texas experiencing such bad power outages?

Center for Industrial Progress president and founder Alex Epstein joined "The Glenn Beck Radio Program" to lay out what he's found.

Alex said he believes the "fundamental" problem is "the insistence on using unreliable wind and solar energy instead of reliable energy from coal, nuclear, and natural gas." And soon, it may not be just Texas, as President Joe Biden pushes for 100% dependency on green energy nationwide. THAT is the "real lesson of Texas," he warned.

Disney actress Gina Carano was just the latest to be canceled for being vocally conservative — this time for making a Holocaust comparison. But on this week's episode of "The Glenn Beck Podcast," renowned Jewish historian Edwin Black explains how Gina's comparison wasn't exactly out of line: The second phase of the Holocaust, exclusion, "is like cancel culture."

Edwin Black is the son of Holocaust survivors and an investigative journalist with awards and best-selling books translated into 20 languages in nearly 200 countries. His book "IBM and the Holocaust" examines high tech's role in killing Jews during the Holocaust and what it can teach us about the dangers of Big Tech today.

Edwin has spent enough time in the media to see all of its warts (there are a lot). And he's speaking out about it and its role in ignoring history at our nation's peril. He told Glenn he believes our culture and our history are being erased. Our ideals are being censored and our values are being mocked.
