CPS v. Anti-Vaxxers - The Battle For Parental Rights In The Default Of The Chattel Grant

The State of New York is now using Child Protective Services to open child abuse under educational neglect.

The States are diffusing Parental Rights legislation, again, but this time they are using immunizations of children platform to trigger that default to the grant of the rights to custodianship and guardianship, to be transferred to a corporate parent, who is privatized and foreign, which means there are no civil rights.

Medicaid is the cost-reimbursement source, which means there are lots of revenue maximization schemes being constructed and pitched.

The following is the testimony of Brooke Jordan on medical and religious exemptions for childhood immunizations.

I found it interesting that she met her GoFundMe goal.


Child welfare shall be a presentation to crush many spirits and rip many souls from the shadows of life, because no one wants to talk about the residuals of the peculiar institution.

Praise the lord because this is about Parental Rights and it started in Detroit.

Anti-vaccine parents pull all-nighter in protesting vaccination bill

Hundreds for and against state vaccination legislation rally at the Capitol
A public hearing on the state's proposed vaccination legislation draws hundreds of supporters and opponents

The state's plan is to eliminate the current religious exemption for schoolchildren.

The debate over childhood vaccinations wrapped up shortly after 8 a.m. Thursday after raging more than 20 hours and through the night, sustained by upset moms from around the state who recoil at the prospect of government telling them how to take care of their children.

The public health committee next meets on Friday in Room 2D at the Legislative Office Building, said its chairwoman, state Sen. Mary Daugherty Abrams. The committee is not expected to vote at that time, however.

Drafted around the time measles was starting to make a comeback in a Jewish community in New York state, the bill would prohibit parents from citing religious or philosophical beliefs in refusing to vaccinate their children. It drew the ire of thousands at the state Capitol Wednesday, some of whom pulled their children out of school to join them.

One child was in the hearing room with her mother during testimony early Thursday. It wasn’t clear if the child was there all night; some of those at the hearing said they had gone home before rejoining fellow speakers.

Some speakers were emotional, with one mom unable to hold back tears. There were more than a dozen people in the hearing rooming at dawn.

On Wednesday, thousands of concerned parents gathered at the state Capitol to speak out against the bill, which would prohibit them from citing religious or philosophical beliefs as a reason for not immunizing their school-age children.

Parents with small children and posters reading “Parents call the shots" packed the Legislative Office Building, waiting for hours to get into a public hearing on vaccines, or one of several overflow rooms needed to contain the crowd, which was by far the largest at the Capitol this year.

Hundreds more vaccine skeptics gathered outside, chanting and holding signs that stated “Kill Bill 5044” and “I am informed, I do not consent."

Legislators on the public health committee heard hours of testimony from those on both sides of the issue, but the committee’s co-chairs said early in the day that it was unlikely the primary purpose of the bill, to eliminate the religious exemption, would change.

“We know what we’re talking about is highly controversial, but we’re confident that what we’re doing is in the best interest of the state of Connecticut,” said Rep. Jonathan Steinberg, D-Westport. “Though it may not be perfect and may go through some little tweaks between now and the time it reaches the floor, I am confident [the bill] addresses the current circumstances.”

In the 2018-2019 school year, about 96% of kindergarteners in Connecticut were vaccinated against measles, mumps and rubella. But the state Department of Public Health, following a record-breaking measles outbreak last year, has expressed concern about a small, but growing, percentage of religious exemptions that could create pockets of vulnerability to the virus throughout the state.

Between the 2017-18 and 2018-19 school years, the number of kindergarten students with a religious exemption jumped from 2% to 2.5%, a 25% year-over-year increase. The department estimated that 7,800 children had religious exemptions in the 2018-2019 school year.

“We’re going in the opposite direction,” state public health Commissioner Renee D. Coleman-Mitchell told legislators. “What’s to say that next year the religious exemptions won’t continue to skyrocket ... and we had a chance to prevent that from happening?”

But opponents said the bill was an example of governmental overreach. James Turkosz, a father from Woodbridge, said it removed his choice as a parent not to vaccinate his children.

In his testimony, Turkosz said he had spent countless hours and sleepless nights thinking about the vaccination issue. Under the current version of the bill, students without proper vaccines would be blocked from enrolling in school starting this fall. Exemptions would be granted only for specific medical reasons.

“People are scared,” Turkosz said, calling the 25% increase cited by the department a “misleading statistic.”

His wife, Kristen Turkosz, a public school teacher, called the bill “discriminatory” against children who are not vaccinated due to a religious exemption.

Other opponents raised concerns about the safety of vaccines, which doctors repeatedly addressed in their own testimony.

“I want to clearly, vociferously, state that vaccines are highly effective and safe,” said Dr. Saad Omer, director of the Yale Institute for Global Health.

“I believe individual parents come from the right starting point," he said. "It’s perfectly reasonable to seek information around vaccines or anything else. It is therefore our responsibility to make sure that information is correct.”

Omer asked legislators and families to take seriously the medical consensus that vaccines are safe.

“We have to do something about his,” he said. “We cannot sit around and not act in face of a real prospect of a resurgence of major disease.”

One health professional warned legislators that the large crowds at the Capitol Wednesday were not representative of how the majority of parents fell.

“You’re hearing from a very vocal minority,” said Dr. Linda Niccolai, professor of epidemiology at the Yale School of Public Health, urging lawmakers to “listen to the experts, people who are professionally trained and have science on their side.”

Most Americans support mandatory vaccination for schoolchildren, according to public opinion polls. A 2016 Pew Research Center study found more than 80% of adults support the notion that healthy children should be required to receive vaccines in order to attend school because of potential risk to others.

Another study conducted by Harvard’s T.H. Chan School of Public Health last year found broad support for school vaccination requirements but more limited trust in the safety of vaccines themselves and in public health agencies.

In 2019, the World Health Organization named vaccine hesitancy as one of the top 10 threats to global health, Coleman-Mitchell told legislators. Much of the skepticism surrounding vaccines is due to misinformation, she said.

Common arguments against immunization include claims that vaccines are linked to autism or infect children with disease. Multiple experts testified Wednesday that neither of these claims are true.

Some opponents to the bill expressed concerns that eliminating religious exemption would be a violation of constitutional rights. In an opinion issued last May, Attorney General William Tong said the proposal was constitutional.

“There is no serious or reasonable dispute as to the State’s broad authority to require and regulate immunizations for children: the law is clear that the State of Connecticut may create, eliminate or suspend the religious exemption ... in accordance with its well-settled power to protect public safety and health," Tong wrote in his seven-page opinion.

Tong said the U.S. Supreme Court has repeatedly affirmed the authority of states to “require and regulate immunizations for children.” The Connecticut Supreme Court has also upheld mandatory school immunizations, he wrote.

Gov. Ned Lamont Wednesday also voiced his support for removing the religious exemption.

“When it comes to the health and safety of our kids, it is our responsibility to act out of an abundance of caution,” he said, in a written statement. “Vaccinations are safe. They are the reason dangerous diseases disappeared for decades.”

BEHOLD! The Residuals of the Peculiar Institution.

We still cite law under the Thirteenth Amendment Exception Doctrine.

You will see in the parental rights movement that they used "to further a compelling government interest", more intuitively understood as Child Protective Services, otherwise known as "gerrymandering".

Jacobson v. Massachusetts, 197 U.S. 11 (1905)

This case involves the validity, under the Constitution of the United States, of certain provisions in the statutes of Massachusetts relating to vaccination.
The Revised Laws of that Commonwealth, c. 75, § 137, provide that
"the board of health of a city or town if, in its opinion, it is necessary for the public health or safety shall require and enforce the vaccination and revaccination of all the inhabitants thereof and shall provide them with the means of free vaccination. Whoever, being over twenty-one years of age and not under guardianship, refuses or neglects to comply with such requirement shall forfeit five dollars."
An exception is made in favor of "children who present a certificate, signed by a registered physician that they are unfit subjects for vaccination." § 139.
Proceeding under the above statutes, the Board of Health of the city of Cambridge, Massachusetts, on the twenty-seventh day of February, 1902, adopted the following regulation:
"Whereas, smallpox has been prevalent to some extent in the city of Cambridge and still continues to increase; and whereas it is necessary for the speedy extermination of the disease that all persons not protected by vaccination should be vaccinated, and whereas, in the opinion of the board, the public health and safety require the vaccination or revaccination of all the inhabitants of Cambridge; be it ordered, that
Page 197 U. S. 13
all the inhabitants of the city who have not been successfully vaccinated since March 1, 1897, be vaccinated or revaccinated."

Wayne State University Press Drama Continues...

Is this one of those institutional indemnification issues?

Sounds like it, but, hey, what do I know?

Whiplash: Fired WSU Press Managers Regain Jobs In Odd Saga's Latest Twist

Featured_wsu_press_staff_members_dismissed_2-7-20_40413
Sales and marketing director Emily Nowak (top), editor Annie Martin (left)
 and design/production manager Kristin Harpster return Tuesday.

Calling this a bumpy month at WSU Press would be like saying roller coasters have a few ups and downs.

As we posted just four days ago: "We need a penciled-in lineup card and will keep an eraser handy." Sure enough, three managers fired Feb. 7 will be back next week.

The trio returns Tuesday, their Royal Oak lawyer tells The Detroit News:

Jennifer McManus said after talks with her and university officials, editor-in-chief Annie Martin; design and production manager Kristin Harpster; and sales/marketing director Emily Nowak were offered their jobs back.

They accepted and "are really happy to return," McManus told The Detroit News. "They really believe in the authors they work with and they didn't want to let those people down." ...

McManus said the university has not apologized or given a reason for the firings, which prompted outcry from the publishing house's editorial board as well as others who demanded the staffers be reinstated.

A Wayne State spokesman tells reporter Kim Kozlowski that Kathryn Wildfong, the publishing division's recently rehired interim director, is "empowered to make personnel decisions in the best interest of the Press."

This comes just a week after WSU President M. Roy Wilson said in a "Dear Colleagues" letter: "We have already begun the search process for these positions and hope to fill them quickly."

WSU Press, founded in 1941, issues about three dozen general interest and academic books annually. It also publishes 11 journals each year.

DOJ: Texas Couple Sentenced to a Combined 140 Years in Prison for Conspiracy to Produce Child Pornography and Other Crimes Against Children

Where did they get those children?


A husband and wife from Big Spring, Texas, were sentenced today to a combined 140 years in prison for crimes against multiple children. 
Assistant Attorney General Brian A. Benczkowski of the Justice Department’s Criminal Division, U.S Attorney Erin Nealy Cox of the Northern District of Texas and Special Agent in Charge Ryan L. Spradlin of U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement’s Homeland Security Investigations (HSI) made the announcement.
Christopher James Regan, 38, a former shipping logistics manager, was sentenced to 90 years in prison after pleading guilty in October 2019 to conspiracy to produce child pornography and two counts of producing child pornography.  Tanya Marie Regan, 35, was sentenced to 50 years in prison after her October 2019 guilty plea to conspiracy to produce child pornography and possession of prepubescent child pornography.  The sentences, which were imposed by U.S. District Judge Mark T. Pittman of the Northern District of Texas, also included lifetime terms of supervised release for both defendants.
According to court documents, Christopher and Tanya Regan sexually abused and produced child pornography of multiple children, and they possessed and distributed child pornography to one another as well.  The Regans also engaged in graphic discussions about the sexual abuse of children over several online platforms. 
In plea papers, the pair admitted that at Christopher Regan’s direction, Tanya Regan repeatedly videotaped herself sexually abusing children for Christopher Regan’s sexual gratification.
When law enforcement seized electronics from the home, several graphic videos had been deleted, but were still stored in the recycle bin or on unallotted space on various SD cards. Undeleted videos were stored in a computer folder titled “users\tanya_000\pictures\privatevids\minor.”
HSI’s San Angelo, Texas, office, the Howard County Sheriff’s Office and the High Technology Investigative Unit within the Criminal Division’s Child Exploitation and Obscenity Section (CEOS) investigated the case.  Substantial assistance was provide by the HSI offices in Lubbock and Tyler, Texas, Tom Green County Sheriff’s Office, Texas Department of Public Safety, and the National Center for Mission and Exploited Children.  Trial Attorney Kyle P. Reynolds of CEOS and Assistant U.S. Attorneys Ann Howey and Jeffrey R. Haag prosecuted the case along with former Assistant U.S. Attorney Russell H. Lorfing.
This case was brought as part of Project Safe Childhood, a nationwide initiative launched in May 2006 by the Department of Justice to combat the growing epidemic of child sexual exploitation and abuse.  Led by U.S. Attorneys’ Offices and CEOS, Project Safe Childhood marshals federal, state and local resources to better locate, apprehend and prosecute individuals who exploit children via the Internet, as well as to identify and rescue victims.

WHITE HOUSE: Executive Clemency Grants & The Advocates - Blogojevich & Alice Johnson Are Out To Tell Their Tales

There is another side of history no one wants to talk about, nor will ask what it even is, just because no one will #sayhisname.

Justice comes as am epic romance.


Statement from the Press Secretary Regarding Executive Grants of Clemency

Today, President Donald J. Trump signed Executive Grants of Clemency granting Full Pardons to the following individuals: Edward DeBartolo, Jr., Michael Milken, Ariel Friedler, Bernard Kerik, Paul Pogue, David Safavian, and Angela Stanton.  In addition, President Trump signed Executive Grants of Clemency granting commutations to Rod Blagojevich, Tynice Nichole Hall, Crystal Munoz, and Judith Negron.

Edward DeBartolo, Jr., is a successful businessman, real estate developer, and member of the Pro Football Hall of Fame.  During the 23 years that he owned the San Francisco 49ers, the team won an unprecedented 13 division titles and 5 Super Bowl Championships.  In 1998, he was convicted for failing to report a felony regarding payment demanded for a riverboat casino license, and he was sentenced to 2 years’ probation.  Mr. DeBartolo did not allow his conviction to define his life.  He remained a generous philanthropist and passionate supporter of numerous charitable causes, including charter schools like the Brooks DeBartolo Collegiate High School, and anti-gang violence initiatives.  His exceptional compassion and warmth define his character to this day.  Mr. DeBartolo treated players and coaches as part of his family.  Many prominent individuals from the National Football League have strongly advocated for this pardon, including Joe Montana, Jim Brown, Jerry Rice, Steve Young, Ronnie Lott, Charles Haley, Derrick Brooks, Fred Dean, Robert Kraft, Jerry Jones, and Roger Goodell.  They have been joined in their support by other notable figures and organizations, including Pastor Darrell Scott, Kareem Lanier, Paul Anka, and the Urban Revitalization Coalition.

Michael Milken, one of America’s greatest financiers, pioneered the use of high-yield bonds in corporate finance.  His innovative work greatly expanded access to capital for emerging companies.  By enabling smaller players to access the financing they needed to compete, Mr. Milken’s efforts helped create entire industries, such as wireless communications and cable television, and transformed others, like home building.  Mr. Milken’s work also democratized corporate finance by providing women and minorities access to capital that would have been unavailable to them otherwise.  In 1989, at the height of his finance career, Mr. Milken was charged in an indictment alleging that some of his innovative financing mechanisms were in fact criminal schemes.  The charges filed against Mr. Milken were truly novel.  In fact, one of the lead prosecutors later admitted that Mr. Milken had been charged with numerous technical offenses and regulatory violations that had never before been charged as crimes.  Though he initially vowed to fight the charges, Mr. Milken ultimately pled guilty in exchange for prosecutors dropping criminal charges against his younger brother.  As a result, Mr. Milken served 2 years in prison in the early 1990s.  Since his release, Mr. Milken has dedicated his life to philanthropy, continuing charitable work that he began before his indictment.  Over the years, Mr. Milken—either personally or through foundations he created—has provided hundreds of millions of dollars in critical funding to medical research, education, and disadvantaged children.  Mr. Milken’s philanthropy has been particularly influential in the fight against prostate cancer and has been credited with saving many lives.  This pardon has widespread and longstanding support, including from the following individuals: Dr. Miriam Adelson, Sheldon Adelson, David Bahnsen, Tom Barrack, Maria Bartiromo, Ron Burkle, Secretary of Transportation Elaine Chao, William Ford, Josh Friedman, Rudy Guiliani, Josh Harris, Rabbi Marvin Hier, Ray Irani, Robert Kraft, Richard LeFrak, Randy Levine, Howard Lorber, Representative Kevin McCarthy, Larry Mizel, Arte Moreno, Rupert Murdoch, Sean Parker, John Paulson, Nelson Peltz, Steven Roth, David Rubenstein, Larry Ruvo, Marc Stern, Steven Tananbaum, Ted Virtue, Andrew von Eschenbach, Mark Weinberger, and Gary Winnick.

Ariel Friedler was a successful entrepreneur, and built a successful technology company that employed more than 150 people and served more than 41 million students, staff, employers, and government constituents worldwide.  In 2014, while serving as President and Chief Executive Officer of the company, Mr. Friedler pled guilty to conspiracy to access a protected computer without authorization and served 2 months in prison.  As a result of this incident, he was forced to sell the company that he had dedicated his life to building.  During the investigation, his time in prison, and after his release, Mr. Friedler expressed deep remorse for his actions.  Since his release, Mr. Friedler has volunteered his time and expertise to promoting veterans issues and helping former prisoners reenter and rejoin society.  In recognition of his rehabilitation, the State of Florida restored his license to practice law.  Among those who support this grant of clemency are former New Jersey Governor Chris Christie and Rabbi Katz of the Aleph Institute.

Bernard Kerik courageously led the New York Police Department’s heroic response to the horrific attacks of September 11, 2001, as Commissioner of the New York Police Department. He embodied the strength, courage, compassion, and spirit of the people of New York and this great Nation as he served alongside first responders at the World Trade Center in the aftermath of the attack.  In 2010, Mr. Kerik was sentenced to 4 years’ imprisonment for tax fraud and for making false statements.  Since his conviction, he has focused on improving the lives of others, including as a passionate advocate for criminal justice and prisoner reentry reform.  His 30 years of law enforcement service and tenure as Commissioner of the New York City Department of Correction have given him a unique understanding and perspective on criminal justice and prisoner reentry reform, and he remains an invaluable contributor to these endeavors.  Mr. Kerik is the recipient of countless awards for meritorious and heroic service, including a Presidential Commendation for Heroism from President Ronald Reagan. Among others, this pardon is supported by Rudy Giuliani, Judge Andrew Napolitano, Geraldo Rivera, Charlie Daniels, Chief Paul Cell, Judge Ray Reddin, Former Chief of the Passaic County Sheriff’s Department John Comparetto, Representative Peter King, Christopher Ruddy, Chief and Mrs. Eddie Gallagher, and Sidney Powell.

Paul Pogue was the owner of a successful construction company and made significant charitable contributions every year.  An audit by the Internal Revenue Service discovered that Mr. Pogue had underpaid his taxes over a 3-year period by approximately 10 percent.  Immediately upon learning of the tax deficiency, Mr. Pogue paid restitution, interest, and penalties.  To avoid the cost and burden of fighting the charges, which could have put at risk the jobs of the 150 people employed by his company, Mr. Pogue agreed to plead guilty and was sentenced to 3 years of probation.  Despite his conviction, Mr. Pogue never stopped his charitable work.  For more than 30 years, he has provided significant humanitarian aid to countries around the world, including Africa, India, and Mexico, all while continuing to help his fellow Americans in times of need.  Mr. Pogue is the founder of two non-profit organizations.  One constructs churches, clinics, schools, and orphanages in developing countries.  The other provides disaster relief to communities in need.  Following Hurricane Harvey, his charity provided critical support to Texans rebuilding their lives in the wake of the storm.  In addition, Mr. Pogue’s non-profit flies medical teams into disaster areas and flies people in need of medical treatment to doctors and hospitals.  Texas Attorney General Ken Paxton, former Pennsylvania Senator Rick Santorum, Mike Buster, Steve Dulin, Robert Morris, Jack Graham, and James Robison are among the many people who support this grant of clemency.

David Safavian has dedicated his life to criminal justice reform after serving nearly a year in prison.  Mr. Safavian was convicted of making false statements and of obstructing an investigation into a trip he took while he was a senior government official.  Having served time in prison and completed the process of rejoining society with a felony conviction, Mr. Safavian is uniquely positioned to identify problems with the criminal justice system and work to fix them.  Mr. Safavian is a fierce advocate for policy changes that improve public safety, protect families and victims, and reduce recidivism, including the First Step Act, which provides prisoners with a second chance through rehabilitative programs, fair sentencing, and smart confinement.  The District of Columbia restored his license to practice law, and his pardon is supported by several prominent individuals, including Van Jones, Matt Schlapp, Mercedes Schlapp, Doug Deason, Mark Holden, Topeka Sam, Dan Schneider, and Jessica Jackson.

Angela Stanton overcame a difficult childhood to become a champion for redemption and rehabilitation for all who strive for a better life.  In 2007, she served a 6-month home confinement sentence for her role in a stolen vehicle ring.  Today, Ms. Stanton is a national best-selling author, widely acclaimed television personality, and proponent of criminal justice reform. She works tirelessly to improve reentry outcomes for people returning to their communities upon release from prison, focusing on the critical role of families in the process.  This pardon is supported by Alveda King.

In light of the decisions these individuals have made following their convictions to work to improve their communities and our Nation, the President has determined that they are each deserving of full pardons.

In addition, the President is commuting the sentences of four individuals who have paid their debts to society and have worked to improve their lives and the lives of others while incarcerated.

Rod Blagojevich was the Governor of Illinois from 2003 until 2009, when he was charged with, among other things, offering an appointment to the United States Senate in exchange for campaign contributions.  He was convicted of those charges and sentenced to 14 years in prison. Although the Seventh Circuit reversed some of his convictions related to the Senate appointment, it did not alter his 14-year sentence.  He has spent 8 years in prison.  People from across the political spectrum and from varied backgrounds have expressed support for shortening Mr. Blagojevich’s sentence, including Senator Dick Durbin, Reverend Jesse Jackson, Sr., former Representative Bob Barr, Representatives Bobby Rush and Danny Davis, former Attorney General Eric Holder, and Bishop Byron Brazier.  Additionally, more than a hundred of Mr. Blagojevich’s fellow inmates have written letters in support of reducing his sentence.  During his confinement, Mr. Blagojevich has demonstrated exemplary character, devoting himself to improving the lives of his fellow prisoners.  He tutors and teaches GED classes, mentors prisoners regarding personal and professional development, and speaks to them about their civic duties.  Notwithstanding his lengthy sentence, Mr. Blagojevich also counsels inmates to believe in the justice system and to use their time in prison for self-improvement.  His message has been to “keep faith, overcome fear, and never give up.”

Tynice Nichole Hall is a 36-year-old mother who has served nearly 14 years of an 18-year sentence for allowing her apartment to be used to distribute drugs.  While in prison, Ms. Hall has completed a number of job-training programs and apprenticeships, as well as coursework towards a college degree.  In addition, Ms. Hall has taught prison educational programs to other inmates.  She has accepted responsibility for her past behavior and has worked hard to rehabilitate herself. Among those who support this grant of clemency are Clemency for All Non-Violent Drug Offenders Foundation, Alice Johnson, Dan Schneider, Matt Whitaker, Adam Brandon, Kevin Roberts, Brett Tolman, and John Hostettler.

Crystal Munoz has spent the past 12 years in prison as a result of a conviction for having played a small role in a marijuana smuggling ring.  During this time, she has mentored people working to better their lives, volunteered with a hospice program, and demonstrated an extraordinary commitment to rehabilitation.  The Texas A&M Criminal Defense Clinic, the Clemency for All Non-Violent Drug Offenders Foundation, Dan Schneider, Matt Whitaker, Adam Brandon, Kevin Roberts, Brett Tolman, John Hostettler, and Alice Johnson are among the many who support this grant of clemency.

Judith Negron is a 48-year-old wife and mother who was sentenced to 35 years in prison for her role as a minority-owner of a healthcare company engaged in a scheme to defraud the Federal Government.  Ms. Negron has served 8 years of her sentence and has spent this time working to improve her life and the lives of her fellow inmates.  Her prison warden and her counselor have written letters in support of clemency.  According to her warden, Ms. Negron “has always shown herself to be a model inmate who works extremely well with others and has established a good working relationship with staff and inmates.”  This grant of clemency is supported by the Clemency for All Non-Violent Drug Offenders Foundation, Dan Schneider, Matt Whitaker, Adam Brandon, Kevin Roberts, Brett Tolman, John Hostettler, and Alice Johnson, among others.

Building University Campus Trafficking Tiny Humans Ratlines & Their Databases - Michigan Foster Care Navigators - Micro Tiny Human Privateers - Launching The Warriors For Corporate Parental Rights

A few days ago, I received this in my email.

The Michigan Foster Care Services Program wanted me to take a survey, so you know what I did, do you not?

Raise Hope & Foster Dreams

Please Take Our Online Survey

Just a few minutes of your time can make a big difference as we work to support the more than 13,000 Michigan children in foster care.
We want to hear what we can do different or better to help Michiganders take the leap to become a foster parent. Whether you are already a foster parent or thinking about becoming a foster parent, your insights are valuable to us.

Take Our Survey Today!


I proceeded to analyze the validity of the survey where it took me here:

Image result for foster care navigator
https://www.fcnp.org/

The first thing I did upon landing on the home page was to ask myself, "What the hell is a Foster Care Navigator?"

So, I clicked the drop down menu link and found this:

What is a Foster Care Navigator?
A Foster Care Navigator (FCN) is someone who serves as a liaison between current and prospective foster parents and their agency. Each FCN will mentor, through their own experience, parents navigating through the world of foster care.
Modeled after the Michigan Adoption Resource Exchange (MARE) Adoption Navigator program, Foster Care Navigators are trained and experienced current and former foster parents who have navigated through their own foster care experiences.
It was at that point that I realized that we are priming for the blue pinwheel month in the launch of a full scale admirality defense of the work of the lord, in Public Private Partner-ships, to finally take over the residuals of the peculiar institution, by invading our shores with Micro-Privateers, or rather Foster Care Navigators.

What is a Micro Tiny Human Privateer?
A Micro Privateer is an individual who has been anointed in the acquisition of goods through the process of child welfare law and policy to ensure an unimpeded transfer of parental rights in the entire tiny human asset management system, for the purposes of maximizing revenues, to fund political campaigns in the promulgation of child welfare propaganda 
So, who eactly were geniuses behind this trafficking tiny humans program, because I could see the paretal optimalization, not just in the operations of data scrapping human intelligence for Predictive Modeling Crappers to pitch more of their latest and greatest Social Impact Bond Programs, I saw private research being funded through Medicaid?

So, I ended up here:

Foster Care Navigator ProgramThe Foster Care Navigator Program is a support service program dedicated to prospective and current foster parents as well as agencies with the goal of recruiting, retaining and empowering great people to become super foster parents.
Which took me here, where I said, "I told you, so."

Child welfare propaganda.

How are these people pitching programs to increase graduation rates for kids in foster care when Michigan has a human trafficking issue, otherwise known as Foster Care and Adoption?

Then, it dawned on me.

Grand Valley State University just got re-upped on their Fiduciary certification for their K-12 schools, that I have previously reported on in activities of fraudulent Medicaid billing of these foster kids, where you can comtemporaniously be the school superintendent of your own, privately contracted school administration business.

Think of it, you can take all those foster youth identities, re-segregated data labeling assets, push them out on paper only high school graduation certificates in those university dual programs, to capture all that Chaffee and other educational grants, to lump and financially leverage, because you can end up selling all those identities, complete with degrees.

These university students, yes, I said students, pitch their quick and dirty data survey crap, where they are  robed sheepskin,  to go forth and carry on the will of their cloaked, foreign funded, masters.

WARNING: THE FOLLOWING VIDEO MAY CONTAIN MATERIAL NOT SUITABLE TO INDIVIDUALS IN THE FIELD OF RESEARCH METHODOLOGIES



After suffering through the entire pitch for more private grant funding from her Google searches........yes, the State of Michigan uses Google to develop web-based resources for policymaking through their child welfare propaganda websites.

I like to call this portion of tiny human asset management, Googthink, a modern day version to the concept of Groupthink.

See, instead of getting a bunch of Predictive Modeling Crappers into one room to come up with more revenue maximization trafficking tiny humans programs, you do it online, in surveys, and you can do it in bots, because this chick presented how great her concepts are because they got lots of clicks, as seen in Google Analytics.

Yup.

Online clicking for policy bot programming is another great field to go into as a Micro Tiny Human Navigator.

Micro Tiny Human Navigators can work from home, and can write their own books, have their own websites and do youtube videos to get more "likes" or write their own white papers, published by universities, to prove they are great for university tenure or just booking for your next, child welfare propaganda, special support network events!

I found this lovely trafficking tiny humans higher educational fraud scheme from here:

Micro Tiny Humans Privateers should be viewed as ambassadors, for their private, foreign interests, in the name of the lord, as presented in in this house of horrors, youth, job training, higher educational, fake ass program or as pitched to Congress, as seen in this video on re-segregation.

EDUCATION: School Re-Segregation - Brown v. Board Of Education - A Residual Of Predictive Modeling Crap Databases Of Property Ownership & Gerrymandering



And that ends the tale of Micro Tiny Human Privateers Ratlines and the propaganda they are going to be using to defend their financial practices of trafficking tiny humans.

Oh, instead of taking the survey, I generated this post, because I know they will read it.

Doing The Work Of The Lord - $7 Million Christian Children's Trust Fund Operation Ends In 15 Goods Are Destroyed In A Haitian Warehouse Fire

The slave trade never ended.

They just got a 501c3, sometimes, a website and an online payment services, set up a children's trust fund, and, voila', you are now doing the work of the lord in saving the savages, by salvaging their souls through the global foster care and adoption system of child welfare.

Praise the lord, for there are many of these human asset management operations around the world.

Pennsylvania Evangelicals, Accused of Being a Cult, Operated Unlicensed Orphanage

The dead count from the orphanage fire at Church of Bible Understanding rose to 15 by late Friday afternoon after all the bodies of the children were recovered. The operators of the orphanage, missionaries from Pennsylvania, USA, were operating shut down in 2013 for sub-standard conditions.

The building, according to Magistrate Raymonde Jean Antoine, housed about 66 children and had not been authorized to operate as an orphanage since 2013. Two children died in the blaze and 13 others died at a hospital as a result of smoke inhalation, said Judge Antoine.

Rose-Marie Louis, a staff worker at the Orphanage of the Church of Bible Understanding, surveys the charred children's home in Kenscoff, on the outskirts of Port-au-Prince, Haiti, on Friday. A fire swept through this orphanage run by a Pennsylvania-based church, killing over a dozen children, according to health care workers.
Tiny Humans Asset Management Warehouse Fire
"All the goods were destroyed."
According to one of the children, the fire was ignited by candles that the children had lit in their rooms because the electricity was out, she told AFP.

The magistrate said the two-story building was in a state of complete disrepair, with bunk beds -- some in deplorable condition -- crammed into small rooms, a cramped staircase and only one usable exit door, an AFP reporter saw.

"The children's living conditions are truly, truly neglected: all we see are children living like animals," Antoine said, adding that there were no fire extinguishers to be found.

The squalid orphanage was UNLICENSED and operated by a Pennsylvania based NGO, Church of Bible Understanding, founded by late millionaire evangelical cult leader Stewart Trail.

The NGO generates nearly $7 million per year.

Pennsylvania NGO was operating the orphanage.
Only three adults were present at the time of the fire. An investigation is underway to determine the exact cause of the fire and identify the people responsible for the orphanage.

Early reports suggest the church is operated by a group of evangelicals from Allentown, Pennsylvania. The Church of Bible Understanding was investigated for running the sub-standard orphanage back in 2013.

The group has been accused of being a cult, and it has been estimated that its founder Stewart Traill has became a millionaire from operating it.

In 1983 Traill's church was accused it of enticing 17 youth out of a shelter with promises of salvation, and a New York State court enjoined them from housing or transporting youth under age 18 without parental permission.

Bernie Got Hit With A Dairy Boobie Psyop - I Give This An A-

Smooth composure.

Topless dairy industry protesters crashed the stage at a Bernie Sanders rally


Protesters calling for Sen. Bernie Sanders to cut his support for the dairy industry crashed his Carson City, Nevada rally on Sunday afternoon.

One protester grabbed a microphone to say she was Sanders' "biggest supporter" but pleaded that he "stop pumping up the dairy industry."

While she was speaking, three topless women took the stage with "let dairy die" written on their chests.

Topless protesters crashed the stage at a rally for Sen. Bernie Sanders on Sunday afternoon to protest his involvement with the dairy industry.

The Democratic presidential hopeful was taking the microphone from his wife Jane, whom he called "the next first lady," at a rally in Carson City, Nevada. But then protesters took the stage.

"Bernie, I'm your biggest supporter, and I'm here to ask you to stop pumping up the dairy industry and to stop pumping up animal agriculture," one protester said. "I believe in you…" she added, before the mic cut out and security appeared to approach her on stage.

A tweet with video from the event's livestream tagged activist Priya Sawhney and animal-rights group Direct Action Everywhere.

Sawhney was not arrested, but the three women who were topless were arrested and charged with indecent exposure. They are currently being held on $2,500 bond each, according to a press release from Direct Action Everywhere.

"I love Bernie, but we must hold abusive industries accountable, not shield and subsidize them. Animal farming is an industry which gives welfare payments to millionaires," Sawhney said in a statement included in the release. "People are fed up. Like the Sanders campaign itself, animal rights is a burgeoning mass movement."

The same release cited their disagreement with Sanders' "decades-long legislative history of protecting the dairy industry," including writing a 2009 amendment providing dairy with $350 million in aid and approving the 2018 Farm Bill, which the group writes "approved over $100 billion in subsidies while rejecting activist requests to prevent handouts to millionaires and billionaires."

Sanders didn't seem fazed by the interruption.

"This is Nevada, there's always a little bit of excitement at no extra cost," he said, according to the New York Post.

DOJ Alumni Statement on the Events Surrounding the Sentencing of Roger Stone

We, the undersigned, are alumni of the United States Department of Justice (DOJ) who have collectively served both Republican and Democratic administrations. Each of us strongly condemns President Trump’s and Attorney General Barr’s interference in the fair administration of justice.
As former DOJ officials, we each proudly took an oath to support and defend our Constitution and faithfully execute the duties of our offices. The very first of these duties is to apply the law equally to all Americans. This obligation flows directly from the Constitution, and it is embedded in countless rules and laws governing the conduct of DOJ lawyers. The Justice Manual — the DOJ’s rulebook for its lawyers — states that “the rule of law depends on the evenhanded administration of justice”; that the Department’s legal decisions “must be impartial and insulated from political influence”; and that the Department’s prosecutorial powers, in particular, must be “exercised free from partisan consideration.”

All DOJ lawyers are well-versed in these rules, regulations, and constitutional commands. They stand for the proposition that political interference in the conduct of a criminal prosecution is anathema to the Department’s core mission and to its sacred obligation to ensure equal justice under the law.
And yet, President Trump and Attorney General Barr have openly and repeatedly flouted this fundamental principle, most recently in connection with the sentencing of President Trump’s close associate, Roger Stone, who was convicted of serious crimes. The Department has a long-standing practice in which political appointees set broad policies that line prosecutors apply to individual cases. That practice exists to animate the constitutional principles regarding the even-handed application of the law. Although there are times when political leadership appropriately weighs in on individual prosecutions, it is unheard of for the Department’s top leaders to overrule line prosecutors, who are following established policies, in order to give preferential treatment to a close associate of the President, as Attorney General Barr did in the Stone case. It is even more outrageous for the Attorney General to intervene as he did here — after the President publicly condemned the sentencing recommendation that line prosecutors had already filed in court.

Such behavior is a grave threat to the fair administration of justice. In this nation, we are all equal before the law. A person should not be given special treatment in a criminal prosecution because they are a close political ally of the President. Governments that use the enormous power of law enforcement to punish their enemies and reward their allies are not constitutional republics; they are autocracies.

We welcome Attorney General Barr’s belated acknowledgment that the DOJ’s law enforcement decisions must be independent of politics; that it is wrong for the President to interfere in specific enforcement matters, either to punish his opponents or to help his friends; and that the President’s public comments on DOJ matters have gravely damaged the Department’s credibility. But Mr. Barr’s actions in doing the President’s personal bidding unfortunately speak louder than his words. Those actions, and the damage they have done to the Department of Justice’s reputation for integrity and the rule of law, require Mr. Barr to resign. But because we have little expectation he will do so, it falls to the Department’s career officials to take appropriate action to uphold their oaths of office and defend nonpartisan, apolitical justice.

For these reasons, we support and commend the four career prosecutors who upheld their oaths and stood up for the Department’s independence by withdrawing from the Stone case and/or resigning from the Department. Our simple message to them is that we — and millions of other Americans — stand with them. And we call on every DOJ employee to follow their heroic example and be prepared to report future abuses to the Inspector General, the Office of Professional Responsibility, and Congress; to refuse to carry out directives that are inconsistent with their oaths of office; to withdraw from cases that involve such directives or other misconduct; and, if necessary, to resign and report publicly — in a manner consistent with professional ethics — to the American people the reasons for their resignation. We likewise call on the other branches of government to protect from retaliation those employees who uphold their oaths in the face of unlawful directives. The rule of law and the survival of our Republic demand nothing less.
