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.”

Time after time, Americans have taken to the streets to defend our constitutional rights, whether it was our livelihood at stake -- or our lives. But, what was the point of all the civil rights movements that came before, if we're about to let the government take our rights away now?

On his Wednesday night special, Glenn Beck argued that Americans are tired of having our rights trampled by "tyrannical" leaders from state and local governments who are ignoring our unalienable rights during this pandemic.

"Our nanny state has gone too far. The men and women in office -- the ones closest to our communities, our towns, our cities -- are now taking advantage of our fear," Glenn said. "Like our brothers and sisters of the past, we need to start making the decisions that will put our destiny, and our children's destiny, back into our hands."

It took less than two months of the coronavirus tyranny to make America unrecognizable, but some Americans are fighting back, risking losing their jobs and businesses or even jail time, as they battle to take back our civil rights.

Here are just a few of their stories:

After New Jersey's Atilis Gym reopened in defiance of the governor's executive order, the Department of Health shut them down for "posing a threat to the public health." Co-owner Ian Smith says somebody sabotaged the gym's toilets with enire rolls of paper to create the public health "threat."

Oregon Salon owner, Lindsey Graham, was fined $14 thousand for reopening. She said she was visited by numerous government organizations, including Child Protective Services, in what she believes are bullying tactics straight from the governor's office.

77-year-old Michigan barber, Karl Manke, refused to close his shop even when facing arrest. "I couldn't go another 30 days without an income," he said. But when local police refused to arrest him, Gov. Gretchen Whitmer's (D) office suspending his business license instead.

Port of Seattle police officer Greg Anderson was suspended after he spoke out against enforcing what he called "tyrannical orders" imposed amid coronavirus lockdowns.

Kentucky mother-of-seven, Mary Sabbatino, found herself under investigation for alleged child abuse after breaking social distancing rules at a bank. After a social worker from child protective services determined there was no sign of abuse, he still sought to investigate why the Sabbatino's are homeschooling, and how they can give "adequate attention to that many children."

Dallas salon owner Shelley Luther was sentenced to seven days in jail after she defied the state-mandated stay-at-home orders to reopen her business.

It took less than two months of the coronavirus tyranny to make America unrecognizable. Leaders from state and local governments across the U.S. have flattened the curve of some of our most basic constitutional rights, but some Americans are fighting back — and risking jail time or losing their businesses.

On Wednesday night's GBTV special, Glenn Beck argued that we're witnessing the birth of a new civil rights movement — and it's time to build a coalition of common sense to keep America as we know it free.

On the radio program Thursday, Glenn Beck sat down with chief researcher Jason Buttrill to go over two bombshell developments that have recently come to light regarding former Vice President Joe Biden's role in the 2016 dismissal of Ukrainian Prosecutor General Viktor Shokin.

"Wow! Two huge stories dropped within about 24 hours of each other," Jason began. He went on to explain that a court ruling in Ukraine has just prompted an "actual criminal investigation against Joe Biden in Ukraine."

This stunning development coincided with the release of leaked phone conversations, which took place in late 2015 and early 2016, allegedly among then-Vice President Biden, Secretary of State John Kerry, and Ukraine's former President Petro Poroshenko.

One of the audiotapes seems to confirm allegations of a quid pro quo between Biden and Poroshenko, with the later admitting that he asked Shokin to resign despite having no evidence of him "doing anything wrong" in exchange for a $1 billion loan guarantee.

"Poroshenko said, 'despite the fact that we didn't have any corruption charges on [Shokin], and we don't have any information about him doing something wrong, I asked him to resign,'" Jason explained. "But none of the Western media is pointing this out."

A recently declassified email, written by former National Security Adviser Susan Rice and sent herself on the day of President Donald Trump's inauguration, reveals the players involved in the origins of the Trump-Russia probe and "unmasking" of then-incoming National Security Adviser, Gen. Michael Flynn.

Rice's email details a meeting in the Oval Office on Jan 5, 2017, which included herself, former FBI Director James Comey, former Deputy Attorney General Sally Yates, former Vice President Joe Biden, and former President Barack Obama. Acting Director of National Intelligence, Richard Grenell, fully declassified the email recently amid President Trump's repeated references to "Obamagate" and claims that Obama "used his last weeks in office to target incoming officials and sabotage the new administration."

On Glenn Beck's Wednesday night special, Glenn broke down the details of Rice's email and discussed what they reveal about the Obama administration officials involved in the Russia investigation's origins.
