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.”

Sen. Ted Cruz (R-Texas) joined Glenn Beck on the radio program Friday to discuss the latest developments in the Senate impeachment trial of President Donald Trump.

According to Cruz, Thursday was a "very consequential day" in the otherwise tedious and redundant impeachment proceedings.

"Yesterday, the House managers effectively threw Joe Biden under the bus," Cruz said. "They doubled down on what they started doing on the first day of arguments, which was making their entire case ... based on the proposition that there was zero evidence to justify investigating Burisma [the Ukrainian natural gas company that paid then-Vice President Joe Biden's son, Hunter, $50,000 a month to sit on the board]."

Cruz went on to explain that every time the Democrats, namely House Intelligence Committee Chairman Adam Schiff (D-Calif.), rehash the "zero-evidence" argument, they open the door for Republicans to present the overwhelming evidence that contradicts those claims.

"That proposition, that there's zero evidence to investigate Burisma, is utterly and completely absurd. So, I'm looking forward to Saturday when the president's lawyers will begin presenting his case. Because what the Democrats have done, is they have opened the door to this. And I hope the president's lawyers will stand up and systematically lay out the case," Cruz said.

"They've been arguing that Hunter Biden is completely irrelevant to this case. Well, the House managers have now, through their arguments, made Hunter Biden not only relevant — he was always relevant — but critical now," he continued. "They built the entire case, like a house of cards, on the proposition that there was no reasonable basis to investigate Burisma. And that's just absurd."

The two also discussed Cruz's new podcast, "Verdict with Ted Cruz," which he records with Daily Wire host Michael Knowles each night following the Senate trial.

"Last night's podcast went through systematically ... all of the overwhelming evidence of corruption from Burisma that any president, not only had the authority to investigate, but the responsibility to investigate," Cruz said. "And that, ultimately, is why President Trump is going to be acquitted at the end of this process."

The violent crime rate in the United States has continued to decline every year since 1991 and last year the violent crime rate nationwide was down another 3% from the previous year.

Unfortunately for the people living in Minnesota's 5th Congressional District, represented by Ilhan Omar (D), this trend toward a safer and more secure America does not apply in Minneapolis. In fact, Minneapolis police report a 53% increase in robberies since the controversial congresswoman took office in January 2019.

Minneapolis has also become the terrorist recruitment capital of the U.S. More people in Rep. Omar's district have either joined or attempted to join terrorist organizations, including Al Qaeda, al-Shabab, and ISIS, than any other place in the nation.

So, how is Rep. Omar addressing these issues? Is it just a coincidence that Minneapolis' representative in Congress is known for sowing division and hatred?

Glenn Beck: Adam Schiff is a LIAR — and we have the proof

Image source: Glenn Beck Program on BlazeTV

On the radio program Wednesday, Glenn Beck didn't hold back when discussing the latest in a long list of lies issued by House Intelligence Committee Chairman Adam Schiff (D-Calif.) during the Democrats' ongoing endeavor to remove President Donald Trump from office.

"I'm going to just come out and say, Adam Schiff is a liar. And he intentionally lied. And we have the proof. The media being his little lapdog, but I'll explain what's really going on, and call the man a liar to his face," Glenn asserted. "No, I'm not suggesting he's a liar. No, I'm telling you, he's a liar. ... Adam Schiff is a lying dirtbag."

A recent report in Politico claimed Schiff "mischaracterized" the content of a document sent to House Judiciary Chairman Jerry Nadler (D-N.Y.) as evidence against President Trump in the Senate impeachment trial. Read more on this here.

"Let me translate [for Politico]," Glenn said. "House Intelligence Chairman Adam Schiff lied about a text message exchange between two players in the Ukrainian saga. And we know it, because of the documents that were obtained by Politico."

A few of the other lies on Schiff's list include his repeated false claims that there was "significant evidence of collusion" between the Trump campaign and Russia leading up to the 2016 presidential election, his phony version of President Trump's phone call with the president of Ukraine, and his retracted claim that neither he nor his committee ever had contact with the Trump-Ukraine whistleblower. And the list just keeps getting longer.
