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.

Top officials at the Federal Reserve are doing what they can to sugar coat what's ahead for our economy, telling Americans we may hit a "transitory" period of inflation that will settle by 2022. But Bank of America is saying something different. The bank's latest earnings call commentary warned "at the very least" transitory hyperinflation is ahead.

Straight from the Marxist con of critical race theory are three big lies about "systemic racism" in America that are debilitating to our nation: the lie that policing in the U.S. is thoroughly racist, the lie of voter suppression, and the lie of equity as the solution to solve "racism." Despite the evidence disproving these lies, they grow stronger, thanks to Democrats and activists with selfish interest in these narratives, who, along with their media partners, spread the sinister message that everything in America is racist by default and only massive government intervention can save us from ourselves. President Biden, Vice President Harris, Chuck Schumer, Nancy Pelosi – every Democrat on the national stage sees racism in literally everything at this point.

In this precarious time for America, Glenn Beck and North Carolina Lt. Gov. Mark Robinson join together with data and the truth to fight back against the race-baiters ripping us apart.

America has always been the land of the free. But as the line fades between the socialist, woke Left, and the Democratic Party that controls our government, are we diving headfirst into Marxism?

On his BlazeTV exclusive show, Glenn Beck spoke with Li Schoolland, who grew up under Mao's cultural revolution in China, and never did she think she would see the same warning signs in America. But now, she has a horrifying warning for us all.

Earlier this year, Coca-Cola became the poster child for how a corporation could shove leftist ideologies onto its consumers. The company suspended advertising on Facebook in a push to censor former President Donald Trump, published a manifesto about racial equity, and demanded all legal teams working for Coke meet certain diversity quotas.

But now, after Trump, Sen. Ted Cruz (R-Tx.), Sen. Rand Paul (R-Ky.), and many other conservative voices called for a boycott of the company's products, Coca-Cola appears to be shifting directions.

The Washington Examiner reported that the company issued a conciliatory statement after conspicuously failing to appear on a published list of hundreds of corporations and individuals that signed a statement denouncing the Georgia voting bill.

"We believe the best way to make progress now is for everyone to come together and listen respectfully, share concerns, and collaborate on a path forward. We remained open and productive conversations with advocacy groups and lawmakers who may have differing views," the company said. "It's time to find common ground. In the end, we all want the same thing – free and fair elections, the cornerstone of our democracy."

Then last week, Coca-Cola Co.'s new general counsel, Monica Howard Douglas, told members of the company's global legal team that the diversity initiative announced by her predecessor, Bradley Gayton, is "taking a pause for now." Gayton resigned unexpectedly from the position on April 21, after only eight months on the job, to serve as a strategic consultant to Chairman and CEO James Quincey.

"Why is Coca-Cola 'taking a pause' on all of these? Because you have been standing up," Glenn Beck said on the radio program Monday. "You and others have been standing up. Your voice, it's the power of one. Your voice makes a difference."
