System-Suckology: Thoughts on Pizzagate Connection to CPS Vs. The Real Child Welfare Pedophiles

From our friends over at Legally Kidnapped, we have another "System Suckology" Report on the conspiracies of "Pizzagate" and the real issues of child welfare.
By LK

I'm sure that many of you are by now aware of and jumping on the Pizzagate train.

I've recently seen many links popping up on this Pizzagate issue.  These links include Reddit banning the #Pizzagate hashtag.  Some blogs trying to link CPS as human traffickers to this group of high society pedophiles.  I've even seen blogs trying to link our beloved Senator Nancy Schaefer and her fight against CPS to this nasty scandal which is really sad since her death has been reduced to a conspiracy theory that has never been proven or debunked by anybody with the power to do so leaving us to speculation.

Over the years there have been many rumors of high profile sexual abuse rings, for example the Day-care sex-abuse hysteria that took place in the 80's or 90's, or the American Indian Boarding School's and some of the things that went on in there, as well as many others but it seems to be one of those places where nobody who could stop or expose or fix it or prove it is ever willing to go. I am unaware of any serious investigations into any such scandals in the USA at this time and I am unable to support or debunk the Pizzagate Conspiracy Theory.

Although, and I'm only saying this because it's provable, there is a major inquiry going on in England right now, they're busting Government Officials, Lords, BBC stars and you name it, it is fraught with scandal, changing leadership, failures and criticism.  Plus the accused are being acquitted and filing lawsuits.  Because there are so many high profile targets, the whole country is engulfed in an emotional sexual abuse scandal that has yet to do anything about the problem.

http://www.bbc.com/news/uk-34965912    (Or just Google "Sexual Abuse Inquiry UK")

It would be interesting if the powers that be actually opened such an investigation over here that targeted government officials, corporate leaders, or Hollywood pedophiles, but I have yet to see anything, I will therefore not jump to any conclusions.

So let me explain what really happens which should be scarier than any of the conspiracy theories.

I could make the serious argument that the most common crime against foster children is probably sexual abuse.  What we don't know the extent of this because it's not tracked by the government, and only a fraction of these stories ever hit the media and that is just of those who got caught.  I could also make the serious argument that many prostitutes or rather "Human Trafficking Victims" came out of the child welfare system.  That's a fact, but if CPS can sweep it under the rug, they will and they usually do.  It's how they protect their image.  What we can't have is the people knowing that Pedophiles target jobs working with children because that will cause a panic.  Pedophiles who haven't been caught yet are also great at passing background checks which are supposed to protect these kids.  That's how they get in the door.

Here is nearly 10 years worth of links on the topic of sexual abuse in child welfare.  Mostly to "reliable" news sources.   Just go to the bottom and click on "older posts" and you will get more and more and more.

http://legallykidnapped.blogspot.com/search/label/sexual%20abuse

CPS will remove a child, eventually they will terminate the parents rights to that child which leaves the child available for adoption into a "loving family" or lingering in the system, all cut off without a word to anybody who knew the kid from their previous life.  The system guards it's secrets well. Some of these kids are thrown into group homes, some are bounced through foster care, others are locked up.  Some even run away never to be heard from again.  Most of the time we never find out.

Confidentiality laws are enforced and parents are often gagged by the judges.  So the kid who isn't adopted into a loving family just disappears into the system and is left to the mercy of the state.  When they turn 18 (or 21 in some states) the services stop and they are put out on the street, end up on the streets or in jail with everything in between.

If #Pizzagate shines light on these issues over here in the USA, so be it.  I totally support protecting these kids.  I haven't seen anything from any reliable sources to suggest that it is.  That doesn't mean anything though because the "reliable sources" often look the other way when it benefits them to do so.  Therefore it is entirely possible.  However, I can back up everything that I've just said.  That's the difference.

And even if Pizzagate is true, I'm sure they've moved on from the pizza shop by now anyway.  So let's please get back to reality so we can start solving the real problems with CPS and the Child Welfare System.

Peace Love and Flowers

International Adoptions: The Importation of Tax Credits

Would you like to know why these U.S. international adoption agencies are so upset with the new, proposed regulations?

I bet you would.

It is because these Christian charities are going to cut into their profit scheme of selling humans from their international acquisitions of salvation by selling chattel in the name of God.

The 2016 tax credit for a foreign adoption is quite the lucrative scheme for all stakeholders involved.

"My new mommy and daddy said that God told their tax adviser that I
am worth $13,400 a year to them
and that did not even include the tax exempt trust fund!"

Topic 607 - Adoption Credit and Adoption Assistance Programs
Qualified adoption expenses

The schemes are run like this.

A church comes up with the "save the savages" scheme utilizing the age old salvation pitch of the imperialist morality parade..

Of course, no one questions the work of God as it is a tax-exempt organization.

This means the Christian child trafficking adoption organization can now solicit foundations to assist in its efforts to provide affluent nurturing homes to those poor, disadvantages children.

(Just as a side note.  Domestic adoptions acquire its children goods from the poor, or in the spirit of the nomenclature for federal funding: "abused and neglected"; "at-risk"; and "vulnerable and targeted populations".)

Now, comes the reasonable fees the agency may assess for the adoption.

Here is a price list promoting the end of year tax season to buy adopt kids.

(Please note that these price lists do not include citizenship processing fees.)

"Agency fees" is nothing but a diluted term to make buying a human trafficked child more palatable in the eyes of one's tax preparer.

The new parents now have a permanent tax deductible dependent and will more than likely give back a healthy tax exempt donation to the Christian human trafficking organization, like the ones busted in Guatemala and Haiti that are in the process of being shut down by the U.S.

Here is a link to U.S. Senators Bob Casey Bill and Sherrod Brown's attempt to make the adoption tax credit fully refundable.

We now have a synoptic overview of the money scheme in international adoptions, but it gets better.

Not once does one find language requiring legal verification that the child is an orphan, whether a paper orphan, meaning parental rights have been terminated, or that the parents are deceased, or even that reasonable efforts were made to place the children with kin.

The reasonable efforts is the underlying premise as to why the U.S. refuses to sign on to the United Nations Convention on the Rights of the Child.

Reasonable efforts would significantly interfere in these Christian human trafficking adoption organizational financial operations.

So, the moral of the story for domestic and foreign adoptions is this:  deportation human trafficking of kids are not tax deductible, but still profitable.

International adoptions may get harder due to proposed U.S. regulations

WASHINGTON — It’s been nearly 19 years since a social worker placed Douglas Althauser’s 5-month-old Cambodian son in his arms and said, “Here you go, Dad.”

Nothing has been the same since.

Althauser, now a Westerville lawyer, was 36 when he adopted Michael, now 19.

Before that moment, he’d traveled, he’d published a book. He’d received a couple of college degrees.
But “I can’t think of a single thing that was important to my life prior to becoming a father,” he said, reflecting on the moment he first held his boy. “All those things went on the back burner."

Michael was one of more than 15,000 children adopted internationally in 1998. But by 2015, that number had dwindled to 5,647.

And now, international adoption agencies worry that a sweeping set of proposed State Department regulations could erode that number further.

“This would have the effect of strangling international adoption,” said Thomas Taneff, a Columbus adoption attorney.

Others say they’re a much-needed attempt to better protect children and families from being set up to fail.

“If you want take care of kids, more oversight and better conditions for success should trump any business objective,” said April Dinwoodie, chief executive of the Donaldson Adoption Institute, a research and advocacy organization that studies adoption.

Among the proposed provisions that critics worry most about:

• Effectively preventing agencies from charging prospective adoptive parents for the cost of caring for their child after families are matched with a child. Families say that because they’r e adopting from impoverished countries, they feel obliged to pay for food, clean water and medical care during the period between being matched with a child and taking their children home.

• Creating a second level of authorization to adopt from a specific country in addition to the existing accreditation process. Adoption agencies say this creates yet another layer of bureaucracy, requiring more staffing and more potential hurdles to adoption.

• Requiring parents pursuing international adoptions to participate in their state’s foster care training. Critics say some states don’t offer the level of training required by the new regulations, and that the foster training doesn’t provide the specialized training that adopting a child from a foreign country might require.

“These rules would have a devastating effect on international adoption,” said Chuck Johnson of the National Council for Adoption.” “It’s regulation upon regulation, but they really in our opinion did not get to the real root of some of the issues we wanted to get at.”

Many say the rules are well-intentioned — a response to high-profile cases of corruption, fraud and child trafficking.

In 2003, a Pennsylvania man was arrested for child sex trafficking. His victim was a Russian girl he’d adopted in 1998. In 2010, a Siberian boy was sent alone on a flight back to Russia after his adoptive mother decided she could no longer care for him.

But such cases, though high-profile, are rare, argue critics of the new proposals.

The greater risk, said Taneff, is leaving children in orphanages in impoverished countries.

“What’s the worst evil?” he asks. “Is it, ‘let’s cure this thing with a sledgehammer so all kids get stuck over there because we want to minimize fraud on less than 1 percent of cases?’ ”

Taneff, himself the father of an adopted girl from China, said the existing international adoption process is fraught with bureaucratic hurdles.

“I consider myself an above-average smart person, and my wife is too,” he said. “But the amount of red tape that already exists is daunting, and this is simply more red tape, more bureaucracy. Who suffers in the end? The child in that orphanage.”

A State Department official said the changes simply aim to improve a system that has placed more than 200,000 children over the past 15 years.

“The proposed changes seek to strengthen standards for those seeking accreditation or approval to provide intercountry adoption services,” the official said, speaking only on the condition of anonymity.

But Dinwoodie said the increased educational requirements are aimed at preparing adoptive families for as many potential challenges as possible. And the fee rule, she said, is aimed at protecting adoptive parents from financial fraud.

“There should be some kind of clear understanding of what the money goes for, who handles the money and where it goes to,” she said.

“Adoption and intercountry adoption has traditionally been a savior mentality, these strong Americans are going to go help kids in other countries, we can do this better. Children have needs in other countries and we, in some shape, are designed to fill a need. But at the same time, it has to be with the highest level of ethics … having more checks and balances is a good thing.”

Among those who signed on to a congressional letter opposing the regulations was Sen. Sherrod Brown, D-Ohio, who said pre-adoption trainings already work to prepare parents for adoption.
“Adding even more costs to this already expensive process and making parents jump through unnecessary hoops could make it impossible for some families to adopt and deprive children of loving homes,” he said.

In Strongsville, Margaret Cole has handled 8,000 international adoptions through her agency, European Adoption Consultants, in the 25 years she’s been in business. She’s watched, meanwhile, as other agencies have gone out of business, overwhelmed by regulations and cost.

She doesn’t oppose the idea of reform. But she said many of the reforms proposed make little sense.
“We don’t have the staff to do things that don’t do any good,” she said. “There are babies starving, and if we spend the money on a license instead of helping orphans, then what? Why would we do that? We already have licenses.”

Althauser, meanwhile, feels grateful that the adoption process for him was relatively easy, though the paperwork involved made it something of “an endurance test.” His son, now a sophomore in college, is studying video-game design.

“You just can’t regulate the commitment a parent is willing to have in order to adopt a child,” he said. “Those of us who have worked so hard to be able to adopt a child have really shown a lot of dedication to being great parents.”

CONYERS Applauds November Job Report's Low Unemployment Rate


Washington, DC – Congressman John Conyers, Jr. (MI-13) founder and Co-Chair of the Congressional Full Employment Caucus, today released the following statement on the November jobs report:

Dean of the U.S. House
of Representatives
John Conyers, Jr.
“November’s jobs report is the latest piece of good news about our job market, which has consistently gained strength under President Obama’s leadership.  The unemployment rate fell to 4.6 percent and the economy added 178,000 jobs in November, extending the longest streak of job growth on record. I am also pleased to see that 220,000 fewer Americans are involuntarily working part-time, meaning they wanted, but were unable to find, full-time work. This is a new low mark since onset of the Great Recession that was ushered in by Republican economic mismanagement."

“This is excellent progress, and all fair observers must recognize and praise President Obama’s terrific economic management. However, there is more work to do to ensure that we achieve a true full employment economy with abundant job opportunities and rising wages for all. At 8.1 percent, the African-American unemployment rate is nearly twice that of whites, while the Hispanic rate is also elevated at 5.7 percent. Also concerning, is that decline in the unemployment rate may be partially due to workers giving up searching for work, which is exemplified by decrease in the “prime age (25-54) employment-to-population ratio” from 78.2 percent to 78.1 percent. This is still an improvement of 0.7 percentage points from last year, however, showing that the overall trend is positive. Finally, wage growth fell 3 cents in November after a rapid uptick in October, demonstrating that wages are not accelerating at a rate that should raise concerns over inflation. In fact, the American people deserve a raise, which is why Republicans must stop blocking legislation to increase the minimum wage."

“I continue to urge all of our key policymaking institutions, from Congress to the Federal Reserve, to continue to take actions that will help us achieve a full employment economy. Congress should pass job-creating bills, such as my legislation, H.R. 1000, Humphrey-Hawkins 21st Century Full Employment and Training Act, while the Federal Reserve should not slow job and wage growth by raising interest rates.”

The Congressional Full Employment Caucus was launched in February 2014. The Congressional Full Employment Caucus serves as a platform and working group for Members of Congress who are dedicated to identifying solutions and advocating for legislative action to reduce unemployment.

Trey Gowdy Finds Out Secret Service Violated Jason Chaffetz Personnel File

This is getting nasty when your personnel file is accessed by the Secret Service then they indirectly insult you in a public memorandum, which will exist in the annals of history, and you are the person setting up the investigation.

Oh, I bet that public record is going to be amended, alright.

This is what a bi-partisan Congress is supposed to look like.

This is Judiciary.

Clinton Foundation and Its Child Welfare Issues With Norway and Australia

This entire Clinton Foundation investigation is about Medicaid Fraud in Child Welfare.

Period.

Here, we have Norway and Australia pulling out of its contribution agreements with the Clinton Global Initiative and the Clinton Health Access Initiative (CHAI) by and through its child welfare programs.

Norway Slashes Clinton Foundation Donations By 87% As Political Clout Dries Up

Australia Cuts Clinton Foundation Donations To $0

The money to contribute to the Clinton Foundation originated in the generation of false claims and manipulation of the public record through political campaign activities to ensure its child welfare schemes continued, exempt and excluded from public scrutiny, fradulently maximized revenue by billing the taxpayers, in the best interests of the child.

These nations would, in turn, enter memorandum of understandings to implement these same child welfare schemes in economically emerging nations to further generate, leverage and hedge in their so-called regime change schemes.

I am just going to drop it here and let this guy pick up where I left off.

 
This is the new form of public record, the internet, including Wikileaks.

The Library of Congress has been so slow and far behind, with an extremely out-dated and completely political Copyright Office because electronic communications have never been even addressed, hence, the Gmail situation.

NSA is in possess of all this information, and it is my belief that it is the one who has been pushing the proverbial envelope on testing the boundaries of ethical governance and the technological issues dealing with oversight of data.

Quintessentially, the question is, "Who is the recordkeeper."

On the issue of child welfare, Legally Kidnapped is the recordkeeper because no one else will do it, so this is what I did.

I did a quick and dirty search on Norway and Australia child welfare systems and it is really, really, not good.

In fact, it is so bad that it imported the child protection model from Michigan and transposed the entire U.S. child welfare system.




If the media will not cover this, then we shall through social media.

This is a public investigation where the public can engage, debate, share and directly participate in the investigations.

The investigation must be conducted in this manner as it is a form of metadata analysis, like Legally Kidnapped, and the fact that the U.S. Department of Justice has....for the longest...ignored me, just like the States Attorney General when it comes to that nasty conflict of interest in child welfare.

The entire model started on the ground level of the States, and now has become a global initiative (pun intended).

This is beyond historic because selling chattel may no longer be an option survival.

They can no longer raid the Social Security Trust Fund.

On a mission...

The Private Juvenile Prison Preparatory System

If you think private prisons are bad, you should see what goes on in private juvenile detention facilities and residential institutions in child welfare.

In the child welfare system, there are no civil rights which means there is no escape, no message in the bottle grievance, no magical guardian ad litem who will carry a youth's cries for the salvation of freedom and liberty.

This video is an instructional parody, because mocking seems to be the only way to get the powers to be to listen to what people have been calling the "schools-to-prison pipeline".

This is what the majority of youth who age-out of foster care expect.

The Multi-billion Dollar Industry of Warehousing Children



So, if you are appalled in the reality of the financial and administrative operations of the private prison system, you are more than likely not going to be able to stomach what goes on in the private juvenile prison preparatory system.

Children are treated the same as adult prisoners.

So far, we know "The Elected Ones" will not touch juvenile justice reform.

AFTER TRUMP TWEETS, HOUSE JUDICIARY DEMOCRATS PRESS FOR HEARING ON TRUMP CONFLICTS

House Judiciary Democrats Release CRS Memo Outlining Ethics Provisions Applicable to the President

Washington, DC – After President-elect Donald Trump’s vague announcement this morning to leave his “…great business in total...,” all sixteen Democratic members of the House Judiciary Committee wrote today to Chairman Bob Goodlatte (R-VA) to request that the Committee hold hearings to examine the federal conflicts-of-interest and ethics provisions that may apply to the President of the United States.
In their letter, the Members wrote, “Although we do not yet know the details of his proposal, this announcement raises a number of questions, including whether Mr. Trump intends to legally transfer ownership of his assets to his children, or simply allow them to manage his assets; the extent his children will continue to be involved in his Administration and whether they will be subject to an “ethics firewall;” whether businesses, foreign governments, and others will continue to able to take actions that benefit Mr. Trump and his family; and what level if any of transparency in these matters Mr. Trump will provide.”

Previously, Mr. Trump claimed that “the president can’t have a conflict of interest.”  However, at the request of Ranking Member John Conyers, Jr., the Congressional Research Service (CRS), a non-partisan legislative agency operating out of the Library of Congress, has prepared a list of federal ethics and conflict-of-interest rules that may and should apply to Mr. Trump when he assumes office. This list includes four criminal statutes and the Emoluments Clause of the U.S. Constitution.  In their letter, the Members cite these rules as a cause for concern.

The letter was signed by every Democratic member of the U.S. House Judiciary Committee, including: Representatives John Conyers, Jr. (D-MI), Jerrold Nadler (D-NY), Zoe Lofgren (D-CA), Sheila Jackson Lee (D-TX), Steve Cohen (D-TN), Hank Johnson (D-GA), Pedro Pierluisi (D-Res.Comm.- PR), Judy Chu (D-CA), Ted Deutch (D-FL), Luis Gutierrez (D-IL), Karen Bass (D-CA), Cedric Richmond (D-LA), Suzan DelBene (D-WA), Hakeem Jeffries (D-NY), David Cicilline (D-RI), and Scott Peters (D-CA).

Do Not Blame CPS, Blame Michigan


To begin, I do not believe these Child Protective Services workers should be blamed for the child's death for the following reasons, so let us start with the "Right To Lie" federal case which sets forth the question:


Elaina Brown and Kelly Williams
Wayne County CPS Workers Elaine Brown and Kelly Williams
blamed for the death of Aaron Minor

"Do social workers have the right to lie, generate false evidence, and submit into the public record for removing a child from the home."

In this report, it is unknown if these workers lied which is really not at issue here.

What is at issue are roles and responsibilities of the players in child welfare.

Let us take a bottom up look at statutory authority in the food chain of child welfare.

CPS operates as the intake under the powers of the State, not local, which means the role of prosecution does not fall upon Wayne County Prosecutor Kym Worthy, but instead, upon the State Attorney General.

Wayne County is the only county of the State where the State Attorney General prosecutes child welfare cases.

Next, upon review of the statements of the anonymous child welfare worker, who, obviously does not possess a legal background, fails to even realize that the one main, and constitutional, reason why the Detroit Police Department will not just bust into a home, based on what CPS calls "exigent circumstances", is because police are supposed to possess a signed warrant, not rubber stamped.

But, as I have always said, there are no civil rights in child welfare.

Continuing on up the CPS food chain, Wayne County Child Protective Services follow the policies set by the State of Michigan, under the leadership of the Department of Health and Human Services, where the latest Director Nick Lyon, who is too busy preparing for his legal defense, with the taxpayers dimes, is a tad bit too busy to address the egregious fraudulent billing, including civil and human rights violations of human trafficking in child welfare.

In child welfare, each state-county section of the state system has quota in the number of removals, and/or cases opened under child welfare, in order to maintain levels of operations and its federal funding.

If one ever took the time to do a time series of expenditures...what a minute, I constructed that model over a decade ago... one will observe, with crystal clarity, that it should appear as odd that each year there is not volatility in caseloads.

Same number of cases opened; same number of cases sustained; same number of foster care placements; same number of termination of parental rights.

This is what is called benchmarks and if the state does not meet its previous year's benchmarks, then, they lose federal dollars, of which I have alleged for over a decade, that the State uses a portion of federal funds (FFP) as its state participation rate obligations.

That is a major "no-no", but of course, state officials are too busy in the criminal investigation of the players in the Flint Water Crisis, oh, and I forgot to mention, still under federal oversight of its child welfare system.

But of course, for those who are loyal fans very well know, there were substantial errors in that particular case because HHS lied to the federal court.

Without going into my ad nauseum on that federal oversight case with Children's Rights, there was not a peep on the filing of false cost reimbursements or that magical and secretively omnipotent organization called Michigan Children's Institute, which has never been audited.

This takes us to the upper echelon of Michigan's child welfare administration where many of its leadership, civil servants and contractual arms, are playing the immunity game.

What I mean by the immunity game is that the state slammed through a bunch of laws, washing its hands of responsibility with its child welfare contracts, meaning, the Bureau of Child and Adult Licensing does not possess the authority to accept grievances, let alone conduct and refer suspected violations of law and policy to the Attorney General.

Heck, the Office of Children's Ombudsman (OCO) does not even refer suspected violations of law and policy to the Attorney General, because they still operate on that deflective policy of "valid-not-opened".

If, in the even the OCO actually does find violations, it is sequestered from the public due to those lovely privacy laws in child welfare, because, as we all know, well, at least the state administrators do, the Attorney General exists in that particular conundrum of contemporaneously "advising and advocating".

How can the State Attorney General prosecute these CPS workers when it is obligated to defend its actors while it prosecutes child abuse and neglect in Wayne County?

I cannot fail to mention that the State Automatic Child Welfare Information System (SACWIS) sucks, badly.

Data reporting is not just incomplete by its users, but it is redundant and technologically arcane, intentionally designed to omit "certain" reporting variables.

Ok, in this particular case, CPS had a referral from a mandatory reporter to check on a mental health patient, who, more than likely, according to the report, was in a situation of "food scarcity".

Food scarcity is the fancy new term which means the state has significantly cut, or even, severed, SNAP food benefits.

Now, let us examine this particular component of the story.

The mother was poor, with mental health needs she was obviously addressing, which means to mean she was receiving Social Supplemental Income, federal welfare, as the national trend is to dissolve the social safety net without any replacement.

If she was receiving $733 a month, that means her SNAP benefits were cut to $18 a month, which includes a child in the home.

This means if she needed food, as the shift is to send the poor to the food pantries, praytell, my gentle readers, how is a mother, with disabilities and an infant, supposed to: (1) get to the food pantry without transportation as some set distribution in vehicle food lines; and, (2) get to and from the food pantry having to pay bus fare from her monthly allotment of $733, and pay her bills?

Let us not even waste our precious time to contemplate if the mentally ill have the ability to even execute this aforementioned food gathering task.

Drive through food line distribution of the week for a
family of 4. (Industrial case of mustard, 2 cabbage, 4 butternut squash,
pre-rotten tomatoes, 2 bags of rice, out-dated milk,
and frozen-thawed-frozen-thawing chicken quarters.)
But wait, it gets better.  The food pantries are running out of food.

I do not know about the rest of you, but to me, the unraveling of the social safety net for the most vulnerable, or rather, "The Poors", is a scheme to hustle more federal dollars through privatization, because someone has to make a profit and these poorly trained CPS workers. lacking of resources for proper referrals to prevent situations such as this tragedy, should not be held liable for the unintended death of the child.

The same poor quality of services can be seen in mental health.

They, the CPS workers, were, including the mother and the child she just lost, are part of the food chain in the perverse child welfare system which is only a foreshadowing of its final stage of privatization.

It is my belief that the workers possesses legal claims against the State of Michigan and should be approached by the legal community.

Call me, I will consult.

This is a principal-agent issue where the State should be blamed and federal court oversight should continue.

What say thee, Attorney General Bill Schuette?

CPS worker says colleagues not to blame for child's death CPS worker says colleagues not to blame for child's death

Captialism With A Conscience: The New Human Trafficking Industry Model

This was sent to me from our friends over at Legally Kidnapped.

It is rare when I find someone who is able to engage in a fact-based discussion dealing with the administrative structure and business model of child welfare, so when I do, I stop to see if I am able to disprove their position.

Mind you, he could have stopped midway in his segment and conserved his political partisanship, but there was a theme which rang through his presentation, and it was quite simple.  Fraud.

This individual is from the State of Washington and sets forth his argument that the child welfare industry was designed to be corrupt based on the fact that it is run by private corporations, the same as federal prisons, therefore, there are no civil rights as corporations have immunity.




He is absolutely correct, but now there is legislation on the state level to support his position statement.

Building Companies With a Social Purpose

The theory is called "Capitalism With A Conscience".

Increasingly, successful companies in the 21  century are those that not only sell and deliver a service or a product, but also contribute to society … organizations with a conscience that goes beyond the bottom line.This ‘do good’ principle should evolve out of a corporate credo that encompasses commercial strategies that maximize improvements in human and environmental well-being, as well as profits for shareholders.And, it is now becoming obvious that this altruistic approach does in fact positively contribute to P&L figures, engaging consumers with a feel good factor that builds brand loyalty and cements a relationship beyond the price/value equation.

As a recent global study involving 8,000 consumers in 16 countries carried out on behalf of PR group Edelman revealed, ‘social purpose’ as a purchase trigger has risen 26 per cent since 2008.

In a nutshell, this is what the Clinton Global Initiative does.

It markets the opportunity of social impact investments whereby generating a profit for its clients through child welfare programs, under the guise of religious salvation, to justify the trafficking of children of the poor.

Selling chattel is the oldest form of survival, and in the direction is being privatized.

Child welfare is being formatted to adopt the banking industry model, replete with fees, penalties and interest, devoid of regulation, reminiscent of the peculiar institution.

All investments are guaranteed a return as child welfare, or rather all social services, are to be privatized, meaning, there are no rules for government intervention in the business activities of a corporation, in this instance, a for-profit.

They want to get their hands on the Social Security Trust Fund, badly, for investment purposes, of course.

This is why there is a push for deregulation of the private sector because any injustices would have to be litigated in a court of law and everyone knows that the poor are not afforded equal justice (pun intended).

No money, no justice.

Then, let's take this a step further.

If the child welfare industry is privatized and one wishes to address the fact that the child placing agency keeps internal policy on generating false evidence to remove a child from a family, keep it in the system, assign unnecessary services and medication, while fast tracking to adoption, this means that, not only is there profit being generated for its investors, but it is also a challenge to its business model which may be a violation of its trade secrets, or rather intellectual property.

Without permission, or fair use standards, intellectual property cannot be used.

This is another reason why child welfare is exempt and excluded from FOIA and the legal proceedings are closed.

This is why child welfare corporations and its employees do, in fact, possess the constitutional right to lie in a court of law and it was granted pursuant to the Adoption and Safe Families Act.

He brings up an entirely plausible reason why "The Elected Ones" refuse to stand up and speak out about the fraud in child welfare as he alleges they are part of the corporate structure, but I am going to simplify this and just say politicians tend not to "shat where they make their bread."

This is why there are no civil rights in child welfare.  There is no money in it.

The child welfare industry funds political campaigns, and that includes the marketing campaigns to generate a profitable return in the best interests of the child, ya know, to grow up to its fullest potential....to maximize corporate revenues.
"Businesses, philanthropists, foundations, congregations of every faith have to step up too because there is work to be done in every community, debates to be joined in city halls and state capitols, and even if it may not seem like it right now, there is common ground to build on." 
 Hillary Clinton, Children's Defense Fund Gala, November 17, 2016
I guess I just failed to disprove his statement.

Ohio Local Police Launch Foster Care Fraud Investigation Of A Non-Profit

To the deliciously wonderful, breathtakingly beautiful Charles Phelps, Chief of the Troy, Ohio Police Department, I wish to declare my love to your brave initiation to stand up and take on the pervasive defalcation of the nation's child welfare system due to the legislative constraints of the Internal Revenue Service in dealing with the secrecy of nonprofits, the blatant dismissive ambiance of the State Attorney General in its contemporaneous conflict of interests in advising and advocating these contracted entities, and the out-cold, callousness of our elected officials who are promulgating their own self-serving, revenue maximization schemes of social programming.

If it takes a local law enforcement unit to do the task of ending fraud in child welfare, then I believe we need to diffuse this model across the country until there are some major changes in how we, as a nation, deal with privatization and human trafficking of children in poverty.

If the report of "theft" came in at $100,000, I am going to let you know that you must look at the billing because it is going to be extremely likely that there were much more egregious and fraudulent activities to stack up that much money to steal in the first place.

Check political campaign funding activities, while you are at it.


If you are ever in need of advise and consultation, I am here, my dearest, free, at your humble disposal.

Troy police investigating foster care facility for theft of $100,000


11-23 ISAIAH'S PLACE INVESTIGATION2.jpg

TROY, Ohio (WRGT) -- A Troy foster care facility, under investigation.

Troy Police are trying to figure out who stole more than $100,000.

The investigation into the missing money started about two weeks ago. Police say it started with a tip from an employee at Isaiah's Place.

"We're looking into a misappropriation of funds of theft from the agency or within the agency," Troy Police Capt. Joe Long said.

Long was on scene this afternoon, as officers served a search warrant.

"Right now, we believe that the misappropriation of funds or theft could reach over $100,000," said Captain Long.

Police are investigating the theft from a facility that places kids in foster homes.

"The foster care system is bad enough as it is to be taking funds from it when they really need it, makes it even worse," said Nicole.

Nicole didn't want to show her face because she was part of the state's foster care system when she was a teenager.

"I got really lucky. I had a really good foster family so it was actually really nice. But a couple of my foster brothers and sisters had come from another home that was really, really bad. Very abusive.

Very neglectful," said Nicole.

According to its website, Isaiah's Place is a private non-profit facility, taking donations and, police say, public funding.

"I believe they receive federal, state and county funding to operate," Long said.
Isaiah's Place serves 11 counties.

"To take from them is just horrible, especially when they have nothing to begin with," said Nicole.
Now, Nicole said she hopes everyone gets what they have coming to them.

"That the kids get the money that they deserve. To be taken care of properly and that the people that did what they did get punished for it," said Nicole.

We reached out to Isaiah's Place. They hung up on us the first time, and we called back and left a message for its executive director, but have not heard back.

It Is All Fungible: Holiday Homes For Dogs And Kids

"If the Poor had more Justice they would need less Charity:"
Jeremy Bentham

I would like to tell you a little story about how Child Protective Services came to be.

I wrote this well over 10 years ago.

My friend has decided that it is time for me to start writing my story and it is really, really difficult to say no to him.

In a place called New York there was a little girl by the name of Mary Ellen Wilson, who was heard screaming, every single day. A concerned church worker, who has, also, been referred to as a social worker, Etta Wheeler, decided to do something about it. She contacted Henry Bergh, former president of Harvard University, who had returned from a trip abroad to establish the American Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Animals, borrowed from England’s Royal Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Animals. Basically, he was disgusted with how the immigrants used animals for labor; it was not proper for a “humane society”.

Based on the argument that a child was considered to be an animal because the child had yet to reach the age of reason, 13, filings were made to the court to remove the little girl and the imprisonment of her “mommy”. This beautiful child stood in the only tattered clothing she owned, testified in court to a full house how she sustained daily beatings, was slashed in the face with a pair of scissors by her “mommy”, and spoke of how she did not know what a tree looked like. She was removed from the custody of her “mommy”.

The world was touched. For the next few years, children were being delivered in masses to the Society until it branched and formed a division for children. After a few years of being bounced around from different girls homes which were deemed inappropriate for the little girl, and being housed by caring individuals, of course, the courts decided to return the little girl to her birth mother, Francis Wilson, who had finally remarried, not the foster “mommy” who tortured her.

It has been some time since I have seen such a blatant promotion of poor children being marketed in the spirit of stray animals.

There is no difference.  Trafficking of poor humans is all fungible for the holidays.
