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.

POLL: What did YOU think about the 2nd GOP presidential debate?

Wednesday was a big night for the Republican presidential candidates during the second GOP debate... OR WAS IT?

Glenn wasn't impressed with the debate. In fact, he went as far as to say it was the worst Presidential debate BY FAR he had ever seen for THIS reason: NO ONE discussed the major issues that Americans are actually facing.

Inflation has doubled Americans' grocery bills. Gas is nearing a historic record of $100/barrel. We have DOUBLED our national deficit. Bidenomics and the globalists' green agenda pose an existential threat to core American industries while we continue to fund the Ukrainian people's pensions and small businesses. It is as if our government has forgotten the American people.

It is as if our government has forgotten the American people.

Do YOU think the candidates hit the mark during the second GOP debate? Do you support Trump's decision to skip two debates in a row? Let us know in the poll below!

Do you think the 2nd GOP debate was overall positive?

Did the candidates debate issues you are concerned about?

Do you think the "real" debate was between Trump and Biden in Michigan?

Do you think any of the other GOP candidates can beat Trump? 

Do you think Trump can beat Biden? 

Do you think any other candidate besides Trump can beat Biden?

Do you think it was a mistake for Trump to miss the first debate?

Do you think it was a mistake for Trump to miss the second debate?

COVID is back! Or that is what we’re being told anyway...

A recent spike in COVID cases has triggered the left's alarm bells, and the following institutions have begun to reinstate COVID-era mandates. You might want to avoid them if you enjoy breathing freely...

Do YOU think institutions should bring back COVID-era mandates if cases increase? Let us know your thoughts HERE.

There was a time when both the Left and the Right agreed that parents have the final say in raising their children... Not anymore.

In the People's Republic of California, the STATE, not parents, will determine whether children should undergo transgender treatments. The California state legislature just passed a law that will require judges in child custody cases to consider whether parents support a child’s gender transition. According to the law, the state now thinks total affirmation is an integral part of a child’s “health, safety, and welfare.”

We are inching closer to a dystopia where the state, not the parents, have ultimate rights over their children, a history that people from former Soviet nations would feign repeating.

Glenn dove into the law AND MORE in this episode titled, "Parental Advisory: The EXPLICIT plot to control YOUR kids." To get all the research that went into this episode AND information on how YOU can fight back, enter your email address below:

The Biden admin has let in MORE illegal aliens than the populations of THESE 15 states

There are currently an estimated 16.8 MILLION illegal aliens residing in the United States as of June 2023, according to the Federation for American Immigration Reform (FAIR). This number is already 1.3 million higher than FAIR's January 2022 estimate of 15.5 million and a 2.3 million increase from its end-of-2020 estimate. Even Democrats like New York City's Mayor Adams Mayor Adams are waking up to what Conservatives have been warning for years: we are in a border CRISIS.

However, this isn't the same border crisis that Republicans were warning about back in 2010. In the first two years of the Biden administration alone, the illegal alien population increased by 16 PERCENT nationwide, imposing a whopping net cost of $150.6 BILLION PER YEAR on American taxpayers. That is nearly DOUBLE the total amount that the Biden administration has sent to Ukraine.

This isn't the same border crisis that Republicans were warning about back in 2010.

These large numbers often make it difficult to conceptualize the sheer impact of illegal immigration on the United States. To put it in perspective, we have listed ALL 15 states and the District of Colombia that have smaller populations than the 2.3 MILLION illegal immigrants, who have entered the U.S. under the Biden administration. That is more than the entire populations of Wyoming, Vermont, and South Dakota COMBINED—and the American taxpayers have to pay the price.

Here are all 16 states/districts that have FEWER people than the illegal immigrants who have entered the U.S. under the Biden administration.

1. New Mexico

Population: 2,110,011

2. Idaho

Population: 1,973,752
