Everything you need to know about Ebola

Last night was a very important program, especially considering the increasing fear among American citizens about the possible spread of the Ebola virus. Many theories and rumors are posted on the internet - it’s hard to know what’s true and what isn’t. Glenn invited a panel of experts who answered your most pressing questions.

The whole show is available ON DEMAND, but you can watch a segment below:

Below are some of the questions from our live chat, answered by Dr. Murray Cohen:

Q: If there is an Ebola outbreak in my town, what is the best course of action for me and my family?

Dr. Cohen: Just stay away from crowds. Also a good time to go visit relatives in another town.

Q: I have the same question Glenn had that was never answered , about at what point do we need to avoid large crowds and keep children at home?

Dr. Cohen: Certainly not now; not yet. If God forbid we have lots of infected patients, our own outbreak, then it would be prudent to avoid anyplace where you or your kids could "get sllimed" if you know what I mean.

Q: There are places set up for quarantine in the US, why were/are they not being utilized to shut this down asap?

Dr. Cohen: We have these stations, and many other public health resources that have inexplicably not been utilized. We are suffering a total lack of leadership in our Ebola response.

Q: I read that ebola is carried by the fruit bats in Africia, then the people cook the bats, and eat them, then passed on to people. Is this fact or fiction?

Dr. Cohen: It's a fact that fruit bats are a common food source in Africa, and its a fact that they carry some diseases that can infect people (just like cows, chickens, pigs, etc, in our country.) It is debatable as to whether or not they are whats called the "environmental reservoir" for the Ebola virus.

Q: Can boosting your immune system help you from getting infected?

Dr. Cohen: Always! Not specific for Ebola, but rather to naturally fight off pathogen challenges that occur all day every day. This is the microbial world; WE are the invaders.

Q: Why are US Embassies still processing visas in west African countries? This seems counter intuitive in disease prevention.

Dr. Cohen: This is strictly a political matter. I personally think we are in global crisis that demands stronger prevention measures such as limiting travel such as you suggest.

Q: If dogs have antibodies why aren't we doing research on them for a vaccine?

Dr. Cohen: Although I dont' have specific first hand knowledge, I'm reasonable sure that mammalian blood cells including canine ARE being researched for both vaccine and therapeutic compounds and applications.

Q: Is an antiviral ear loop face mask futile or helpful?

Dr. Cohen: Not protective at all for you as the wearer, but can be very effective in preventing a sick person from spreading virus.

Q: Are Lysol wipes as good as Clorox.

Dr. Cohen: Against Ebola virus, certainly. Different pathogens are sensitive or resistant to different germicides. Everything kills Ebola on environmental surfaces; it is what we call "environmentally fragile."

Q: Israel claims to have treatment for Ebola/ Why is this not being discussed or pursued?

A: This is an FDA problem -- always for drugs from other countries. It's political and economic considerations taking charge here, not public health concerns.

Q: Can any warm blooded animal contract Ebola? I am talking about cats, dogs and the like.

A: Presumably yes, they can harbor the virus. However, there have never been any reports of Ebola virus being pathogenic in any mammals other than humans and non-human primates.

How does a sports writer know how to fix America, and America's racial dilemma?

In a special edition of the "Glenn Beck Radio Program," Outkick sports columnist Jason Whitlock filled in Tuesday for Glenn to explain how we can bring America back together, lean into racial harmony, and restore the values of our Founding Fathers. Because if not us, then who will?

Jason started out by explaining how, during a recent appearance on the program, he felt a spiritual connection with Glenn, regardless of physical differences, as both share a common passion for God and country.

"Glenn and I share a kindred spirit. A kindred passion," Jason said. "We have two things that we love and are passionate about: God and country. I am not a minister. I'm a flawed sinner just like Glenn and just like you. But I am a believer. Believers share an energy that connects them, that cuts through our physical differences and makes those differences irrelevant relevant. That's what I felt when I met Glenn, an energy and a spirit that connects us. We are broadcasters, media personalities, operating in separate spaces, trying to talk to Americans, who share our passion."

Jason went on to say that he believes there are forces operating, both outside of and inside America, that are working to separate America from God, and that much of what we've witnessed in 2020 — from the racial division stirred by the mainstream and social media, to the rioting and looting by Antifa and Black Lives Matter, to the "remaking of the sports world into a shrine that celebrates resisting criminal suspects and denigrates this great country at every turn" — are symptoms and consequences of America's enemies separating God and country.

"We are one nation under God. We are nothing without Him," Jason continued. "The flawed sinners who founded this nation baked God into this country with their Declaration of Independence. We hold these truths to be self-evident, that all men are created equal. That they are endowed by their creator with certain unalienable rights. That among those, are life, liberty, and the pursuit of happiness. The foreign and domestic enemies of this nation are baking a new American cake. God isn't an essential ingredient in this new cake. He isn't an ingredient at all. The removal of faith is sewing the disharmony that is terrorizing and destroying the United States of America.

"Why am I here today? I'm here to tell you how we take our country back, how we restore the freedoms and the liberties our enemies seek to remove in their remaking of a godless America."

One of the most shocking things British journalist, political commentator, and author of "The Madness of Crowds," Douglas Murray witnessed during his recent stay in America, was how many Americans are acting as if they live in 1930s Germany or behind the Iron Curtain, afraid to stand up and speak out because they're afraid of the consequences.

Murray joined the "Glenn Beck Podcast" this week to explain why he believes the state of America is actually worse than we realize, and how the Left's obsession with rewriting history has ushered in guilt, fear, and a "silent majority."

Murray said he's particularly "fed up" with those on the Right who are afraid to voice their opinion because they don't want to become the target of leftist mobs on social media.

"Do you think anyone in history who told the truth had an easy time? You've got the easiest time that any opposition movement ever did in history," Murray said.

"You cannot have these people in America living in a free society — which is for the time being free — pretending that they live under the circumstances of Jews in 1930s Germany," he added. "Speak up. Speak out. Don't be a silent majority; be a very damn noisy majority. And don't put up with the oppression of people who are totally insincere ... they want to make money. They want to win. Nothing more. Call them out ... and get back to what you should be doing as a nation."

New York City shut down its schools over the coronavirus with barely any notice. But even before that, Governor Andrew Cuomo apparently wasn't in the mood to be asked about it, and he made that very clear to reporters.

Asked on Wednesday whether parents could expect schools to be closed as soon as Thursday, Cuomo mocked reporters for their "obnoxious and offensive" questions and accused them of not paying attention. Watch the testy exchange for yourself here.

On Thursday's radio program, Glenn Beck and producer Stu Burguiere had plenty to say about Stu's least favorite governor and the decision to close schools. But Glenn also offered his own theory on why coronavirus restrictions have become so political: Americans refuse to be forced into submission.

Everything comes down to the two Senate runoffs in Georgia. If we lose both races, we lose the country. Democrats know this and are pouring in millions to usher in a Marxist agenda.

As the Left tries to hide how radical the two candidates really are, Glenn takes us inside the Democrat war room to expose the wolf in pastor's clothing, Raphael Warnock, and America's Justin Trudeau, Jon Ossoff. Socialism, the Green New Deal, and "defund the police" are all on the table. And Glenn warns of what's to come if conservatives don't activate: Chuck Schumer will weaponize the Senate, and the radical Left will launch an all-out assault to ravage the Constitution.
