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.”

The far left is tearing apart the social fabric of our country in the name of "progress." From its emphasis on government dependency, to the $15 minimum wage, to the embrace of Marxist Critical Race Theory in our schools, the Left is destroying our culture and way of life.

On Glenn TV this week, Glenn Beck spoke with Christopher Rufo, director of the Center on Wealth and Poverty, about the latest insane example of the Marxist lies destroying the minds of our kids: A New York school sent parents a "white identities" chart advocating for "white traitors" and "white abolitionists."

There is an all-out assault on the social fabric of our country. The kids are NOT all right. In the name of "progress," we're destroying their minds with Marxist lies. In the name of "safety," we're destroying their souls by keeping them locked down.

On his Glenn TV special this week, Glenn Beck takes on the national suicide that the Left is committing by destroying our culture and way of life and how it's also leading to actual suicide of our kids. Experts on the front lines expose how the lies of critical race theory are crippling our children's future and provide tools for parents to fight back.

Finally, Glenn hears from a parent who tragically lost his teen son, who took his own life due to COVID isolation. He has a powerful message for parents, teachers, and politicians who he says are failing our kids.

With as much gas and oil as Texas has — and not to mention its own power grid — why in the world is Texas experiencing such bad power outages?

Center for Industrial Progress president and founder Alex Epstein joined "The Glenn Beck Radio Program" to lay out what he's found.

Alex said he believes the "fundamental" problem is "the insistence on using unreliable wind and solar energy instead of reliable energy from coal, nuclear, and natural gas." And soon, it may not be just Texas, as President Joe Biden pushes for 100% dependency on green energy nationwide. THAT is the "real lesson of Texas," he warned.

Disney actress Gina Carano was just the latest to be canceled for being vocally conservative — this time for making a Holocaust comparison. But on this week's episode of "The Glenn Beck Podcast," renowned Jewish historian Edwin Black explains how Gina's comparison wasn't exactly out of line: The second phase of the Holocaust, exclusion, "is like cancel culture."

Edwin Black is the son of Holocaust survivors and an investigative journalist with awards and best-selling books translated into 20 languages in nearly 200 countries. His book "IBM and the Holocaust" examines high tech's role in killing Jews during the Holocaust and what it can teach us about the dangers of Big Tech today.

Edwin has spent enough time in the media to see all of its warts (there are a lot). And he's speaking out about it and its role in ignoring history at our nation's peril. He told Glenn he believes our culture and our history are being erased. Our ideals are being censored and our values are being mocked.
