Canadian woman hits and kills 17-year-old cyclist… and is now suing his family

In October 2012, 17-year-old Brandon Majewski and his 16-year-old friends Richard McLean and Jake Roberts were biking abreast along the two-lane rural road in Toronto, Canada at 1:30am, when motorist Sharlene Simon hit the teens from behind. Majewski died soon after the crash, and a police investigation ultimately determined that the “lack of visibility” of the cyclists “was the largest contributing factor” in the accident.

Needless to say, the crash and subsequent death of Majewski was nothing short of a tragedy. But 18 months later, there has been a bizarre turn of events. Simon has decided to sue Majewski’s estate for more than $1 million. According to Canada.com, Simon’s attorney filed a statement of claim in Ontario Superior Court last December stating Simon “has sustained and will sustain great pain and suffering,” including “a severe shock to her system” as a result of the crash. Furthermore, “her enjoyment of life has been and will be lessened.”

On radio this morning, Pat referred to Simon’s lawsuit as one of the most “unbelievable” stories he has ever heard.

“I'm not sure I have ever seen anything like this,” Pat said. “She blames the boys, calling them ‘incompetent bicyclists.’ Is that inconceivable? That's inconceivable.”

Perhaps the only possible explanation for the lawsuit is the fact that the Majewski family is suing Simon and Simcoe County for a total of $900,000. The Majewski suit alleges Simon was speeding, under the influence, or texting at the time of the accident.

“So I guess the excuse would be: They started it,” Pat surmised. “Is that it? It's probably her lawyer, I would imagine, saying, ‘All right, maybe you can scare them out of their suit against you by suing them for even more.'”

But Stu wasn’t convinced that would be the best approach for Simon.

“I don't see how that is going to happen. What judge, what jury would look at a case like this and say, ‘It's okay for the person who killed a child to sue the parents of that child because the child was in the way of their car,’” Stu asked. “There's a level of common courtesy, where you don't sue the family of the child who you killed because you feel stressed out.”

Sen. Mike Lee (R-Utah) joined Glenn Beck on the radio program Wednesday to talk about why he believes President Donald Trump will nominate Judge Amy Coney Barrett to fill the Supreme Court vacancy created by Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg's death.

Lee, a member of the Senate Judiciary Committee that will consider and vote on the nominee, also weighed in on another Supreme Court contender: Judge Barbara Lagoa. Lee said he would not be comfortable confirming Lagoa without learning more about her history as it pertains to upholding the U.S. Constitution.

This week on the Glenn Beck Podcast, Glenn spoke with Vox co-founder Matthew Yglesias about his new book, "One Billion Americans: The Case for Thinking Bigger."

Matthew and Glenn agree that, while conservatives and liberals may disagree on a lot, we're not as far apart as some make it seem. If we truly want America to continue doing great things, we must spend less time fighting amongst ourselves.

'A convenient boogeyman for misinformation artists': Why is the New York Times defending George Soros?

On the "Glenn Beck Radio Program" Tuesday, Glenn discussed the details of a recent New York Times article that claims left-wing billionaire financier George Soros "has become a convenient boogeyman for misinformation artists who have falsely claimed that he funds spontaneous Black Lives Matter protests as well as antifa, the decentralized and largely online, far-left activist network that opposes President Trump."

The Times article followed last week's bizarre Fox News segment in which former House Speaker Newt Gingrich appeared to be censored for criticizing Soros (read more here). The article also labeled Glenn a "conspiracy theorist" for his tweet supporting Gingrich.

The former ambassador to Russia under the Obama Administration, Michael McFaul, came up with "7 Pillars of Color Revolution," a list of seven steps needed to incite the type of revolution used to upend Eastern European countries like Ukraine and Georgia in the past two decades. On his TV special this week, Glenn Beck broke down the seven steps and showed how they're happening right now in America.

Here are McFaul's seven steps:

1. Semi-autocratic regime (not fully autocratic) – provides opportunity to call incumbent leader "fascist"

2. Appearance of unpopular president or incumbent leader

3. United and organized opposition – Antifa, BLM

4. Effective system to convince the public (well before the election) of voter fraud

5. Compliant media to push voter fraud narrative

6. Political opposition organization able to mobilize "thousands to millions in the streets"

7. Division among military and police


Glenn explained each "pillar," offering examples and evidence of how the Obama administration laid out the plan for an Eastern European style revolution in order to completely upend the American system.

Last month, McFaul made a obvious attempt to downplay his "color revolutions" plan with the following tweet:

Two weeks later, he appeared to celebrate step seven of his plan in this now-deleted tweet:



As Glenn explains in this clip, the Obama administration's "7 Pillars of Color Revolution" are all playing out – just weeks before President Donald Trump takes on Democratic candidate Joe Biden in the November election.
