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.

Glenn Beck: THIS is why Biden nominated Merrick Garland as attorney general

Many will remember President Biden's attorney general nominee Merrick Garland as the man Republicans refused to hold a Supreme Court confirmation hearing for back in 2016. So, was Garland's AG nomination just meant to be a slap in the face to Republicans? Glenn Beck thinks there's a lot more to it.

Given how focused Democrats are on rooting out vaguely defined "right-wing extremism," Garland's work in supervising the prosecution of the 1995 Oklahoma City bombing suspects gives us a hint, Glenn suggested on radio this week. He said he's "all for" stopping dangerous extremists, but couldn't help noticing how Garland isn't talking about any of the destruction that happened over the summer.

"I am all for justice. I am all for making sure we catch the bad guys, as long as the bad guys are not defined to be on only one side," Glenn said. "Merrick Garland said [Monday] that there was no comparison between what happened on January 6th and what happened over the summer. That is because the Washington elites see themselves as better than somebody who owns a taco stand. I don't. The Constitution doesn't. They are the same crime."

"All rich countries should move to 100% synthetic beef. You can get used to the taste difference," said holy anointed billionaire Bill Gates. Green activism has been around for decades. But what used to be wacky has now worked its way into the world's power structure. You must believe the science. You cannot question the science.

The Texas power failure provided America with a disturbing and deadly preview of the Great Reset. But Bill Gates, AOC, and other Democrats say this only proves we need to enforce MORE green policies.

On his Wednesday night special this week, Glenn Beck reveals how deep the Great Reset tentacles reach into government and business to strangle freedom and their efforts to control every aspect of your private life.

Why are we letting criminals out of prison while putting pastors in? Pastor James Coates of Canada's GraceLife Church was recently fined, arrested, and put in maximum security prison for violating lockdown rules.

Rebel News founder Ezra Levant joined Glenn Beck on "Glenn TV" to discuss the story. Ezra said he's noticed a trend of government officials "picking on" Christians as "lockdownism" becomes almost a new kind of religion, and warned this might be just the start of more persecution to come.

As politicians and the mainstream media continue to insist that America is divided and at each other's throats, Dr. Ben Carson has a different message. He joined the "Glenn Beck Podcast" this week to discuss his time in the Trump administration and how we move forward and heal America. Overall, he says, we must realize "Americans are NOT each other's enemies."
