Ohio congressional candidate Matt Lynch talks about his work to kill Common Core in the state

Primary season is in full swing, and Glenn is talking to some of the candidates he believes have a real chance of making a difference in Washington D.C. On radio this morning, Glenn spoke with Matt Lynch who is running in Ohio’s Congressional 14th District. Lynch, who has been practicing law for over 30 years, discussed his campaign and his strong anti-Common Core stance ahead of Tuesday’s primary.

To begin, Glenn asked Lynch to explain his stance on Common Core and the work he has done to eliminate the standards from Ohio’s curriculum.

“I'm a cosponsor of the Common Core kill bill, I call it, in Ohio, which is primarily sponsored by Andy Thompson. And it is the way to stop Common Core for all,” Lynch explained. “It's stuck in the Education Committee right now. When we had the first hearing, we had close to a thousand citizens wait all night long – until after 11:00 p.m., if you can believe it – to voice their concerns in opposition to Common Core. But nonetheless, it's stuck in committee. And I'd encourage folks to support those candidates [who oppose Common Core].”

Lynch is also a proponent of the flat tax, and Glenn, who admitted he hasn’t heard of a vocal pro-flat tax candidate in quite some time, asked him to explain his position.

“[The flat tax] would be a huge improvement to we have now. We have to get rid of the 16th Amendment. But the flat tax is the most fair tax. That's the reality of it. And it has the least opportunity for manipulation for politicians to pay off their supporters and to use as a form of crony capitalism,” he explained. “The tax code today is one huge conglomeration of lobbyists and payoffs to protect this industry or help that industry. And I'm all for industry and business, but the tax code is not the place to do things like that. We need to have a simple flat tax. And frankly we need to repeal the 16th Amendment because we need to get rid of the IRS.”

Another major issue that will undoubtedly come up for debate should Lynch make it Congress is immigration reform and amnesty. Lynch is running against incumbent Congressman Dave Joyce (R-OH), who Lynch believes has the wrong opinion when it comes to immigration.

“In Ohio, believe it or not, we actually have a significant illegal immigrant problem. We have over 100,000 illegals living in Ohio costing the taxpayers over $800 billion. And, of course, at the state level, there's limited things you can do,” Lynch said. “And as you know, the U.S. Chamber of Commerce has their number one issue is the fact that they want to open the doors and windows as you say or have them kicked in, really, so that they'll have this substandard workforce in the United States to work from. In fact, they announced they were putting $350,000 into my opponent's campaign to assure, I suppose, that when John Boehner brings that up for a vote, which he will after the primary season, he'll have Dave Joyce's vote for amnesty in the United States.”

“I have to tell you, I've been such a fool. I thought the Chamber of Commerce… were good guys… but they've been so wildly disappointing. MattyLynch.com is the website, if you'd like to be support, if you can donate,” Glenn concluded. “Best of you luck. [The primary is] next Tuesday. You can go and find out more, and if you'd like to donate, you can donate. Matt, best of luck.”

On the radio program this week, Glenn Beck and Pat Gray discussed a series of recent polls that suggest presidential nominee Joe Biden's expected lead may be slipping with traditionally Democratic voters.

A new poll conducted by the Jewish Electorate Institute shows that two-thirds of Jewish voters still plan to vote for the Biden-Harris ticket in November. However, President Donald Trump's support within the Jewish community is also the highest among any Republican candidate in recent history.

In more bad news for Biden, a CNN poll (yes, CNN) released last month showed growing support for President Trump among black voters in swing states. Meanwhile, his support among Latino voters remains at roughly 33%.

"I don't think it's going to go the way the Democrats hope that it will," Glenn said of the election. "If you look at the groups that the Democrats have carefully fostered ... that's falling apart. If Donald Trump can grow that by 5%, and hurt the Democrats by 5% ... that alone could swing the election."

We're being set up for a civil war. The Left is grooming us for an Eastern European-style revolution this election, and they're not even trying to hide it any more. The playbook for Mainstreet USA is the exact same that has been used in places like Ukraine, initiated by the same people in order to completely upend the American system.

On his Wednesday night special this week, Glenn Beck takes us through a tale of three chalkboards that will connect the dots: the Obama admin in Ukraine, the State Department's relationship with George Soros, Black Lives Matter and Antifa riots, the Great Reset, public school indoctrination, mail-in voting. It all points to something dangerous happening in November if we don't act now.

The left has already determined that the wildfires raging across the West Coast were definitely caused by climate change and Big Tech is determined to silence anyone who dares suggest otherwise. Facebook even announced a sweeping policy on Saturday to remove posts that claim the fires were caused by arson from far-left activists.

But on his radio program Wednesday, Glenn Beck revealed multiple arrest records for suspected arsonists in California, Oregon, and Washington — and several of those charged and arrested were also instigators in Black Lives Matter rallies, violent protests, and Antifa riots. He also called out the "news gods" in Big Tech, daring them to try to censor his video.

"I asked my staff, to see if there was any evidence [of arson] on the fires. And I don't mean evidence from Twitter. I mean evidence. Is there anybody who has been arrested for arson?" Glenn said. "Well, here they are. And YouTube and Facebook, go ahead. I want you to demonetize this clip. I want you to somehow or another say that we're lying. I want you to throttle this. Go ahead. Because then you're going to have to explain what we got wrong. And I happen to have all the documents right here. So my attorney is really ready for that throttling or demonetization. You say you're a protector of the truth? Great, here it is."

Glenn read off the first 10 arrest records, which combined allege the destruction of more than 120,000 acres and 700 structures, as well as tens of thousands of people evacuated from their homes.

"You want to tell us, PolitiFact, how you came to the conclusion ... that there was no arson in these fires?" Glenn asked. "Can you tell me how you came to that conclusion? Because your fact-check seems to be entirely false."

Former White House press secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders joined Glenn Beck on this week's podcast to share her unique perspective as a trusted adviser and confidante to President Donald Trump for two and a half years, which she also details in her new book, "Speaking for Myself: Faith, Freedom, and the Fight of Our Lives Inside the Trump White House."

Sarah described the unprecedented levels of corruption she saw firsthand during the Russia probe and shocking lengths to which Democratic leaders and the mainstream media would go to "take the president down."

Sarah said she often saw sides of Donald Trump that the media never covered. Recently, she went on the record denying the Atlantic's claims that the president mocked our military during a 2018 trip to France. She was on that trip, she told Glenn, and her account of what really happened paints a very different picture.

"The people who are making this outrageous charge are such cowards for doing so in an anonymous way. If you really believed this, and believed it was wrong, one, why did it take you so long? And, two, put your name on it the way the rest of us have," Sarah said.

"He didn't say those things. Not only was I there that day, Glenn, I spent two and a half years traveling all over the world with the president, watching him interact with men and women of our armed forces almost every single day during that two-and-a-half year period," she added.

"This is a person who loves America and loves the people who allow the rest of us to live in America, free, and have prosperity. And I got to see that a lot. I think it is shameful that people are trying to distort who he is and what he has done, particularly when it comes to the men and women in the military."
