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.”

On the radio program this week, Glenn Beck and Pat Gray discussed a series of recent polls that suggest presidential nominee Joe Biden's expected lead may be slipping with traditionally Democratic voters.

A new poll conducted by the Jewish Electorate Institute shows that two-thirds of Jewish voters still plan to vote for the Biden-Harris ticket in November. However, President Donald Trump's support within the Jewish community is also the highest among any Republican candidate in recent history.

In more bad news for Biden, a CNN poll (yes, CNN) released last month showed growing support for President Trump among black voters in swing states. Meanwhile, his support among Latino voters remains at roughly 33%.

"I don't think it's going to go the way the Democrats hope that it will," Glenn said of the election. "If you look at the groups that the Democrats have carefully fostered ... that's falling apart. If Donald Trump can grow that by 5%, and hurt the Democrats by 5% ... that alone could swing the election."

We're being set up for a civil war. The Left is grooming us for an Eastern European-style revolution this election, and they're not even trying to hide it any more. The playbook for Mainstreet USA is the exact same that has been used in places like Ukraine, initiated by the same people in order to completely upend the American system.

On his Wednesday night special this week, Glenn Beck takes us through a tale of three chalkboards that will connect the dots: the Obama admin in Ukraine, the State Department's relationship with George Soros, Black Lives Matter and Antifa riots, the Great Reset, public school indoctrination, mail-in voting. It all points to something dangerous happening in November if we don't act now.

The left has already determined that the wildfires raging across the West Coast were definitely caused by climate change and Big Tech is determined to silence anyone who dares suggest otherwise. Facebook even announced a sweeping policy on Saturday to remove posts that claim the fires were caused by arson from far-left activists.

But on his radio program Wednesday, Glenn Beck revealed multiple arrest records for suspected arsonists in California, Oregon, and Washington — and several of those charged and arrested were also instigators in Black Lives Matter rallies, violent protests, and Antifa riots. He also called out the "news gods" in Big Tech, daring them to try to censor his video.

"I asked my staff, to see if there was any evidence [of arson] on the fires. And I don't mean evidence from Twitter. I mean evidence. Is there anybody who has been arrested for arson?" Glenn said. "Well, here they are. And YouTube and Facebook, go ahead. I want you to demonetize this clip. I want you to somehow or another say that we're lying. I want you to throttle this. Go ahead. Because then you're going to have to explain what we got wrong. And I happen to have all the documents right here. So my attorney is really ready for that throttling or demonetization. You say you're a protector of the truth? Great, here it is."

Glenn read off the first 10 arrest records, which combined allege the destruction of more than 120,000 acres and 700 structures, as well as tens of thousands of people evacuated from their homes.

"You want to tell us, PolitiFact, how you came to the conclusion ... that there was no arson in these fires?" Glenn asked. "Can you tell me how you came to that conclusion? Because your fact-check seems to be entirely false."

Former White House press secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders joined Glenn Beck on this week's podcast to share her unique perspective as a trusted adviser and confidante to President Donald Trump for two and a half years, which she also details in her new book, "Speaking for Myself: Faith, Freedom, and the Fight of Our Lives Inside the Trump White House."

Sarah described the unprecedented levels of corruption she saw firsthand during the Russia probe and shocking lengths to which Democratic leaders and the mainstream media would go to "take the president down."

Sarah said she often saw sides of Donald Trump that the media never covered. Recently, she went on the record denying the Atlantic's claims that the president mocked our military during a 2018 trip to France. She was on that trip, she told Glenn, and her account of what really happened paints a very different picture.

"The people who are making this outrageous charge are such cowards for doing so in an anonymous way. If you really believed this, and believed it was wrong, one, why did it take you so long? And, two, put your name on it the way the rest of us have," Sarah said.

"He didn't say those things. Not only was I there that day, Glenn, I spent two and a half years traveling all over the world with the president, watching him interact with men and women of our armed forces almost every single day during that two-and-a-half year period," she added.

"This is a person who loves America and loves the people who allow the rest of us to live in America, free, and have prosperity. And I got to see that a lot. I think it is shameful that people are trying to distort who he is and what he has done, particularly when it comes to the men and women in the military."
