More Than Just a Presidential Primary in Ohio — Warren Davidson's Run

During a presidential election cycle it’s easy to lose track of congressional and senate races. These races have been critical for bringing in candidates that tip the scales in the House and the Senate --- candidates like presidential hopeful Ted Cruz.

Joining Glenn on radio Tuesday was Ohio congressional contender Warren Davidson.

GLENN: Can you tell me, how is this playing in your district with Kasich coming out and saying amnesty in the first 100 days?

WARREN: It was pretty shocking. You know, frankly there's a lot of things during his time as governor that surprised people when he first took office. I think with his history in Congress being more fiscal conservative, a lot of us were hoping for even more than Mitch Daniels in Indiana.

GLENN: Both of your opponents voted to expand Obamacare in Ohio. They have consistently voted for budget increases. I don't know where they stand on amnesty in the first 100 days. Ohio seems to have lost its way. What makes you different?

WARREN: Well, that's part of why I decided to run. In the fall, when folks encouraged me to consider running, I looked at the field and saw a lot of the same sort of local government, state governments, then try to go on to DC kind of experience and felt I had a background that would offer something different.

And in Ohio, with Kasich as governor, with solid majorities in the House and Senate, even our court, there's really no reason you couldn't accomplish anything on the party platform that you wanted to, if you are governor. And, you know, what it shows is that we didn't accomplish the things that the governor didn't want to accomplish.

GLENN: Warren, you were an Army Ranger, right?

WARREN: I was indeed.

GLENN: How does that play into what you will do and what -- and how you look into things?

WARREN: Well, I think, you know, two things: One, when I served in the Rangers, it was in '98 that our industries in Kenya and Cantania were bombed by al-Qaeda. We sent over the FBI to look into it. They're still checking on things. And really, a lot of people knew better then, that's not how you deal with terrorists.

And, you know, today, we have a commander-in-chief that is not taking this threat as seriously as he out to. On the other side, I think it's a challenging time because it's easy to get lured into another ground war against the terror network. I think the common denominator though is, when I served on active duty, I took an oath to support and defend the Constitution of the United States against all enemies foreign and domestic. And for me, if I get the chance to serve, it would be swearing that oath again and it would be for that sort of service.

GLENN: So you're not a politician. What did you do between Army Ranger and today?

WARREN: Well, I got out of the army in 2000 and into small manufacturing companies here in Ohio. We had 20 -- 20 employees in a family business when I started. In 2002, I started my own company. And, you know, along the way, we -- I picked up an MBA from Notre Dame. I bought a company from Utah in 2012, brought on a partner in 2013. And, you know, he's got things running smoothly. So I can go step away and do this. And when I talk to him about, hey, I might take a look at doing this run for Congress. He said, go win. But just kind of looking at the sort of experience that the background in business, the time in service, it's resonated really well with voters. And 90 days ago, we filed, on December 16th. And it's been amazing to see the momentum.

GLENN: You've been endorsed by Freedom Works, the Senate conservative fund, Club For Growth and the Family Research Council. You have a long list of people that are endorsing you. But you've also had one of the nasty super PACs, the one that is trying to stop the grassroots, Tea Party conservatives, you've had them come out and spend a ton of dollars in negative advertising against you.

WARREN: Yeah, specifically against me. I mean, they're backed by union dues. They're backed by -- you know, frankly some of the folks that are propping up Kasich's campaign now. And that's really the thing. You have two state legislatures, one from the House and one from the Senate, that aren’t doing well. And I think voters have a choice today. If that's the direction that you want the party and the country to go, you've got two guys on the ballot. And if you want the direction of the country to go the conservative path, I think all these leading conservative organizations and leaders should point the way. The conservative choice is Warren Davidson in this race.

GLENN: Warren Davidson is his name. Congressional from Ohio. Warren Davidson. Remember that name. If you're in Ohio, vote today. Warren, thank you very much. I appreciate it. Good luck.

Glenn Beck: Why MLK's pledge of NONVIOLENCE is the key to saving America

Listen to the Rev. Dr. Martin Luther King Jr.'s pledge of nonviolence and really let it sink in: "Remember always that the nonviolent movement seeks justice and reconciliation — not victory."

On the radio program, Glenn Beck shared King's "ten commandments" of nonviolence and the meaning behind the powerful words you may never have noticed before.

"People will say nonviolent resistance is a method of cowards. It is not. It takes more courage to stand there when people are threatening you," Glenn said. "You're not necessarily the one who is going to win. You may lose. But you are standing up with courage for the ideas that you espouse. And the minute you engage in the kind of activity that the other side is engaging in, you discredit the movement. You discredit everything we believe in."

Take MLK's words to heart, America. We must stand with courage, nonviolently, with love for all, and strive for peace and rule of law, not "winning."

Conservatives are between a rock and a hard place with Section 230 and Big Tech censorship. We don't want more government regulation, but have we moved beyond the ability of Section 230 reforms to rein in Big Tech's rising power?

Rachel Bovard, Conservative Partnership Institute's senior director of policy, joined the Glenn Beck radio program to give her thoughts and propose a possibly bipartisan alternative: enforcing our existing antitrust laws.

Dan Bongino, host of The Dan Bongino Show, is an investor in Parler — the social media platform that actually believes in free speech. Parler was attacked by Big Tech — namely Amazon, Apple, and Google — earlier this week, but Bongino says the company isn't giving up without a fight. In fact, he says, he's willing to go bankrupt over this one.

Dan joined Glenn Beck on the radio program to detail what he calls a "smear" campaign behind the scenes, and how he believes we can move forward from Big Tech's control.

"You have no idea how bad this was behind the scenes," Dan told Glenn. "I know you're probably thinking ... well, how much worse can the attack on Parler have gotten than three trillion-dollar companies — Amazon, Apple, and Google — all seemingly coordinated to remove your business from the face of the Earth? Well, behind the scenes, it's even worse. I mean, there are smear campaigns, pressure campaigns ... lawyers, bankers, everyone, to get this company ... wiped from the face of the earth. It's incredible."

Dan emphasized that he would not give up without a fight, because what's he's really fighting for is the right to free speech for all Americans, regardless of their political opinions, without fear of being banned, blacklisted, or losing jobs and businesses.

"I will go bankrupt. I will go absolutely destitute before I let this go," he said. "I have had some very scary moments in my life and they put horse blinders on me. I know what matters now. It's not money. It's not houses. It's none of that crap. It's this: the ability to exist in a free country, where you can express your ideas freely."

Joe Biden's administration is getting ready for something historic, but we're all being distracted. And now that Biden has hired at least 14 former or current executives from Big Tech — experts at colluding to censor unflattering news about Biden — Americans must be laser-focused on what's coming.

On January 20, the most corrupt president in American history will be inaugurated, and it looks like some of his cabinet choices were picked specifically so everything just – poof – goes away. The administration nominees appear to be all about preserving corruption, crony capitalism, and executing a Great Reset. Those same people also have one more thing in common: Ukraine.

On his Wednesday night special this week, Glenn exposes their radical agenda in their own words and gives U.S. senators the questions they must ask before confirming corrupt nominees to some of the highest offices in the country.
