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.”

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.

Sen. Ted Cruz (R-Texas) joined the "Glenn Beck Radio Program" to explain how mail-in ballots are typically disqualified during recounts at a far higher rate than in-person, Election Day ballots, and why this is "good news" for President Donald Trump's legal battle over the election.

"One of the things that gives the greatest cause for optimism is, this election ... there's a pretty marked disparity in terms of how the votes were distributed. On Election Day, with in-person voting, Donald Trump won a significant majority of the votes cast on in-person voting on Election Day. Of mail-in voting, Joe Biden won a significant majority of the votes cast early on mail-in voting," Cruz explained.

"Now, here's the good news: If you look historically to recounts, if you look historically to election litigation, the votes cast in person on Election Day tend to stand. It's sort of hard to screw that up. Those votes are generally legal, and they're not set aside. Mail-in votes historically have a much higher rate of rejection … when they're examined, there are a whole series of legal requirements that vary state by state, but mail-in votes consistently have a higher rate of rejection, which suggests that as these votes begin being examined and subjected to scrutiny, that you're going to see Joe Biden's vote tallies go down. That's a good thing," he added. "The challenge is, for President Trump to prevail, he's got to run the table. He's got to win, not just in one state but in several states. That makes it a lot harder to prevail in the litigation. I hope that he does so, but it is a real challenge and we shouldn't try to convince ourselves otherwise."

Fox News senior meteorologist Janice Dean is perhaps even more disgusted with New York Gov. Andrew Cuomo (D) for his coronavirus response than BlazeTV's Stu Burguiere (read what Stu has to say on the subject here), and for a good reason.

She lost both of her in-laws to COVID-19 in New York's nursing homes after Gov. Cuomo's infamous nursing home mandate, which Cuomo has since had scrubbed from the state's website and blamed everyone from the New York Post to nursing care workers to (every leftist's favorite scapegoat) President Donald Trump.

Janice joined Glenn and Stu on the "Glenn Beck Radio Program" Tuesday to ask why mainstream media is not holding Gov. Cuomo — who recently published a book about his leadership during the COVID-19 pandemic — accountable?

"I'm vocal because I have not seen the mainstream media ask these questions or demand accountability of their leaders. [Cuomo] really has been ruling with an iron fist, and every time he does get asked a question, he blames everybody else except the person that signed that order," Janice said.

"In my mind, he's profiting off the over 30 thousand New Yorkers, including my in-laws, that died by publishing a book on 'leadership' of New York," she added. "His order has helped kill thousands of relatives of New York state. And this is not political, Glenn. This is not about Republican or Democrat. My in-laws were registered Democrats. This is not about politics. This is about accountability for something that went wrong, and it's because of your [Cuomo's] leadership that we're put into this situation."

As America grows divided and afraid to disagree with the Democrats' woke plan for America, Megyn Kelly is ready to fight back for the truth. For nearly two decades, she navigated the volatile and broken world of the media. But as America leans on independent voices more than ever, she's breaking new ground with "The Megyn Kelly Show."

She joined the latest Glenn Beck Podcast to break down what's coming next after the election: Black Lives Matter is mainstream, leftists are making lists of Trump supporters, and the Hunter Biden scandal is on the back burner.

Megyn and Glenn reminisce about their cable news days (including her infamous run-in with then-presidential candidate Donald Trump) and to look into the chaotic and shady world of journalism and the growing entitlement it's bred. For example, many conservatives have been shocked by how Fox News handled the election.

Megyn defended Fox News, saying she believes Fox News' mission "is a good one," but also didn't hold back on hosts like Neil Cavuto, who cut off a White House briefing to fact check it — something she never would have done, even while covering President Obama.

Megyn also shared this insightful takeaway from her time at NBC: "Jane Fonda was an ass."
