Glenn talks to Michael Farris of PartentalRights.org about the need for a Parental Rights Amendment

There are a considerable amount of stories in the news recently that revolve around the rights of the parent. In Massachusetts, the Pelletier family is fighting to regain custody of their 15-year-old daughter Justina after the state took custody of her in February 2013. Just this week, the Supreme Court declined to hear the appeal of the German family seeking asylum because their home country forbids homeschooling. Fortunately, the Romeike family was ultimately granted “indefinite deferred action status,” but the Supreme Court’s decision not to hear the appeal speaks volumes. In New Jersey, a 19-year-old has taken her parent’s to court to demand child support even though she chose to leave the house because she did not wish to abide by her parent’s rules.

In all of these cases, the rights of the parents have been called into question, and on radio this morning, Michael Farris of ParentalRights.org joined Glenn to discuss the work his organization is doing to introduce a ‘Parental Rights Amendment’ to states around the country.

“That's what I wanted to talk to you about, Michael, because you also run ParentalRights.org. And you and David Barton have been working on some things. I called David a couple of weeks ago and I said, ‘David, what can we possibly do?’ And he said there is a law in six states that has been passed, and it stops things like Justina,” Glenn said. “You have a right to discipline your child the way you see fit. You have a right to raise them you see fit – religious education and health care are all under this particular law that has been passed in six states.”

The Parental Rights Amendment focuses on two key principles:

  • Fit parents should be allowed to direct the upbringing of their children.
  • American legislators, not international tribunals, should make the public policy for America on families and children.

Glenn asked Michael to explain what the passage of the amendment at the state level will combat.

“It will stop the government from assuming that it has the ability to parent your child… That whole philosophy needs to be stopped dead in its tracks,” Michael explained. “And we need to say: Parents are in charge of raising their kids… not the government, not the courts, not the public schools, not the kids themselves. Only one person can be the decision-maker for a child. It's going to be the parents. Not any of these other things.”

Pat raised the obvious concern of how this amendment will effect the prosecution of child abusers. Michael explained that cases of child abuse undoubtedly satisfy the “compelling interest test.”

“If you need to stop child abuse, that's compelling interest. And what it boils down to is: Our statute requires them to have evidence of that,” Michael explained. “If you're going to intervene in a family with kids, you have to have evidence that they're harming their child. You got evidence that they're harming their child? Okay. That's fine. But if you don't have evidence that their harming their child and you can’t prove it in court, then you need to let the parents raise these kids.”

Glenn believes this legislation will be fundamental to maintaining parental rights and freedoms.

“I so appreciate what you guys are doing… We need to do everything in our power to stop it, and then rely on God,” Glenn concluded. “What we can do is pass this in all of our states. And you can find this at ParentalRights.org. Michael, thank you so much for all the work that you do. I think you're a very important organization.”

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."
