Glenn reacts to the insane story of the spoiled NJ teen seeking child support

There is a bizarre story out of New Jersey burning up TheBlaze today. A high school senior from northern New Jersey took her parents to court to demand they pay her child support in excess of $650 a week and pay her private school tuition. The catch? 18-year-old Rachel Canning moved out of her parent’s house after deciding she no longer wanted to live under their rules. Yesterday, Canning’s parents enjoyed an early victory, with Judge Peter Bogaard ruling the parents do not need to make any payments for the time being. He scheduled a hearing for next month to decide whether to require the parents to pay for their daughter’s college tuition.

“I will tell you that I think the world is absolutely upside down," Glenn said on radio this morning. "When we give you the full details on what has happened in New Jersey and what this girl is claiming. We are living in a world that's upside down… [where] kids think they deserve it. You can't cut them off. The government is saying you're a kid until you're 26. And you know, what's next? We're suing for the right to have television sets in our bedrooms? What's next? Can they say this is cruel and unusual punishment four not sending your kids to college? Can the state take your kid?”

TheBlaze offers the following summary of the case thus far:

  • A New Jersey senior is suing her parents for support and college tuition, claiming they kicked her out of the house.
  • Rachel Canning’s parents though say she left their home last year of her own accord, not wanting to follow their rules, which included keeping a curfew, doing some chores and reconsidering a boyfriend relationship they disagreed with.
  • As a result, they stopped paying her private school tuition and took away the car they paid for while she has continued to live with a friend’s family.
  • A New Jersey judge heard the case Tuesday and ruled against forcing Canning’s parents to pay weekly child support and put off the decision regarding college tuition for a hearing next month.
  • Parents: “… what do you do when a child says ‘I don’t want your rules but I want everything under the sun and you to pay for it?’”

Canning claims her parents are abusive, contributed to an eating disorder she developed, and pushed her to get a basketball scholarship. The parent’s, meanwhile, believe they were supportive – helping her through the eating disorder and paying for her to go to a private school where she would not get as much playing time in basketball as she would have at a public school.

During the court proceedings, vile text messages and emails sent by Canning to her mother emerged. In one email, Canning tells her mother: “I f***ing hat you, and I’ve written you off, so don't talk to me. Don't do anything. I'm blocking from you just about everything. Have a nice life.”

“Oh, my gosh,” Glenn said exasperatedly. “And this kid is suing the parents saying she demands a college scholarship. In the trial the father said, ‘No matter what she says, no matter what she says, we want everybody to know, we still love our daughter. We are embarrassed by the choices she's making. We wish she wasn't making the choices she's making, but she is making them, but we still love our daughter.’”

Ultimately, Glenn believes these parents should sue the father of their daughter’s friend who offered her legal counsel.

“This judge should say: Restitution needs to be made by this girl's friend's father. Her friend's father was the attorney. Instead of an adult saying, ‘You know what, sweetheart… They're your parents. Go back home. You're not living here’… He didn't do that. This parent was dragged through court. And I personally think these parents should sue him,” Glenn said. “And I know they probably won’t want to do that because they've had enough. But boy, oh, boy, what kind of society have we turned into? And if you happen to be in a situation right now, where your family and you don't know what to do… We've been there. Hold on. It gets better in the end.”

We've heard a lot about critical race theory lately, and for good reason: It's a racist ideology designed to corrupt our children and undermine our American values. But most of what we see are the results of a process that has been underway for decades. And that's not something the mainstream media, the Democrat Party, and even teachers unions want you to know. They're doing everything in their power to try and convince you that it's no big deal. They want to sweep everything under the rug and keep you in the dark. To fight it, we need to understand what fuels it.

On his Wednesday night special this week, Glenn Beck exposes the deep-seated Marxist origins of CRT and debunks the claims that it's just a harmless term for a school of legal scholarship. Newsweek opinion editor Josh Hammer joins to argue why we must ban critical race theory from our schools if we want to save a very divided nation.

On the radio program Monday, Glenn Beck blasted the Democrats — and anyone else on the left — who have been so eager to open our southern U.S. border for the past several months, but also willing to turn a blind eye to the Cuban people in need of help today.

"While we are welcoming people from any country, all over the world, without any kind of information, and setting them into our country, putting them on American planes paid for by American taxpayers," Glenn began. "And our Coast Guard Cutters are turning these [Cuban] people away. Shame on you! Shame on you!"

Glenn said that he's "sick and tired" of hearing about "brave" leftist activists like Colin Kaepernick, who protest the America flag while wearing Che Guevara and Fidel Castro t-shirts. Meanwhile, the Cuban people are risking their lives by taking to the sea to escape their oppressive regime and come to America.

"Anybody who glorifies Che doesn't know their ass from their elbow. You can't call them a human rights activist. You're protesting the American flag, because you so deeply believe in the right to be free? And yet, you wear a Che T-shirt?" Glenn said.

Glenn went on to argue that, even though the left has "bastardized" the meaning of our country, he still believes America is the best nation on Earth. In fact, he'd give up his citizenship "in a heartbeat" if another country could prove to be better, more noble, and more free. But no other nation exists like ours, he said, which is why it's so imperative we fight for freedom here, in Cuba, and around the world.

There's a new "reality" spreading, and the mere act of questioning it has become incredibly dangerous, Wall Street Journal investigative journalist Abigail Shrier told Glenn on the most recent episode of "The Glenn Beck Podcast."

Shrier's book, "Irreversible Damage: The Transgender Craze Seducing Our Daughters," exposes the radical gender activism that — like critical race theory — has overtaken our children's schools and culture. But even worse, she warned, it could end your parental rights for good.

Shrier made it clear she is by no means "anti-trans," but simply speaking up against the extremes of this new "reality" has made her enemy No. 1 to many activists. Her book has been bashed so hard by the Left that Target has stopped selling it twice, Amazon once banned ads for it, and the American Booksellers Association even called sending it to others "a serious, violent incident."

In the clip below, Shrier explained why she believes "there may be no hope for the public school system."

"You have teachers behaving like activists across the country who have no interest in actually teaching. They believe their job is to remake your child," she asserted. "We're seeing so much evidence of that, I think it's fair to say that it may be too deeply rooted in the ideology being taught in public school. I'm not sure that the public school system is redeemable at this point."

What is actually in Texas' new GOP-led voting bill? Nearly every Texas House Democrat fled the state to block its passage, calling it racist and oppressive, and President Joe Biden backed them as well.

But Texas Gov. Greg Abbott (R) joined Glenn Beck on the radio program Friday to set the record straight and call out the lies: All of these claims are "completely false." He also explained his promise to "arrest" the Texas House Democrats when they return to the Lone Star State.

"What is in the bill is completely different than what they're saying, what Kamala Harris is saying, what President Biden is saying. What's in the bill actually increases the number of hours that people have to vote in the state of Texas. In the state of Texas, we have at least 12 days of early voting, and we are adding hours to those days. And on top of that, we are giving people time off from work to be able to vote. Bottom line, we're making it easier to vote in the state of Texas," Gov Abbott explained.

"In comparison, Delaware — the state that President Biden votes in — has exactly zero hours of early voting," he added. "That said, there is one thing that we're doing in the state of Texas, and that is we're making sure we tighten the reins on mail-in ballots that can lead to voter fraud. And it's not me saying that. It's a federal judge, appointed by Barack Obama, in Corpus Christi, Texas, who wrote in a legal opinion that voter fraud occurs, quote, in abundance as it concerns mail-in ballots. We know. Texans know. There is fraud in mail-in ballots in the state of Texas. It must be fixed. That's one thing we're trying to do. That being said, all these claims that we're denying people the right to vote and yada, yada, yada, are completely false."

Abbott went on to discuss the much-debated voter ID laws in Texas and to explain why Democrats insist on calling basic voter ID requirements "racist."

"When Democrats do not have truth on their side, they resort to one single word and that is 'racism' ... Texas implemented voter ID almost a decade ago, and when we went through that fight, what word did they use? Racism," he said. "Guess what? After Texas imposed voter ID requirements in the state of Texas, there have been more people voting and more people of color who went to vote. Voting didn't get harder. It got easier and more abundant in the state of Texas. And so, once again, Democrats have absolutely no legal standing, other than to say, 'racism.'"

Glenn asked Gov. Abbott to explain his pledge to "arrest" the Democratic lawmakers that fled once they return to Texas.

"Let me explain how this works. So, whenever there is a break of quorum, which is what is happening now — meaning there is not a sufficient number of people who are showing up to the Texas House of Representatives for the Texas House to engage in business. Whenever there's a quorum break like that, the House issues what's called a 'call on the House.' And when that happens, the sergeant-at-arms is authorized to work with the Texas Department of Public Safety, to — you can call it arrest, apprehend, whatever you want to call it — any of the members who are not in the Texas House of Representatives and bring them to the Texas House where they will be 'cabined' with no ability to leave the Texas House chamber, without a permission slip from the speaker."
