Cocktails & Popcorn: Kwame Kilpatrick Has Many Tales To Tell - Detroit Brady Impeachment Dilemma Continues

Image result for kwame kilpatrick hip hop
Kwame Kilpatrick
Former Mayor of Detroit
ready to serve up some of that
brandy impeachment
It seems Kwame Kilpatrick has much to say.

I do not believe he was ever allowed to tell his tale, considering the fact that the federal government was dealing with an ongoing investigation, which forced its hand to sit on exculpatory evidence, that they had no idea about at the time.

This is about that Detroit Brady Impeachment Dilemma.

This is about to get juicy because everyone knows Kwame is not the sharpest knife in the kitchen drawer.

I have always said that he was groomed by what we call the McNamara Kingmaker.

Just another operation that was being run to cover up the stealin' of the children, the land and the votes.

This is when the "Legal Geniuses" (trademark pending) began setting up the Detroit Land Bank Authority, right in the midst of the fake mortgage and property tax schemes that led right to that fake ass Bankruptcy and Grand Bargain.

In this video, Kwame is calling out contracts and NGOs, that he probably does not have a clue about considering the internet was not rocking in public search databases at the time.

There are still to this day, politicians, like his cousin Bert Johnson, who got propped up as one of those sad sacks of potatoes you throw under the bus so everyone runs over to get their does of fear porn, while the Meanies go running off in the other direction setting up another complex financial fraud scheme that I have so readily boiled down to be known as stealin'.

There are former Corporate Counsel individuals who have unaddressed public allegations of stealin'.

There are former Michigan Democratic Party leaders who have issues with stealin'.

There are current Michigan Republican Party leaders who also have histories of stealin'.

Oh, the oh so many "Elected Ones" whose tales of stealin' could be preserved in the historic record.

Kwame knows everyone, all over the world.

He was the Big Baller Hip Hop Mayer.

Oh, the stories he shall tell.

I am quite sure Trump would just adore preparing a venue for public listening to each and everyone of them.




I have heard tales that Kwame immediately requested transfer to a Texas facility upon his incarceration because there were individuals who were tasked with silencing him.

But, hey, what would I know?

I know Kwame knows Janice Winfrey.

Does Vivek Sankaran Actually Think He Can Command & Cloak Perkins Coie Sucks Corporate Parental Rights Gerrymandering Ops In Michigan?

Vivek sold out.

He has not once communicated with me.

That is how I know he sucks.

He has not once, ever, ever, ever, spoken upon that forebodden term called fraud, or anything connected to the industry of trafficking tiny humans or the children's trusts.

Hey, Vivek!

Are you related to any Awans?

How much did you trick yourself out for?

Do kiss and tell.

You know how they like to roll in Detroit.

To Have Impact, Laws Must Be Enforced. Appellate Lawyers Help Do Just That.

You would think he could at least give a recent photo.
Vivek Sankaran is director of the Child Advocacy Law
Clinic and the Child Welfare Appellate Clinic at the
University Michigan Law School
Each fall, students in the University of Michigan Law School’s Child Welfare Appellate Clinic represent parents in termination of parental rights (TPR) appeals. We don’t cherry pick our cases for ones we’re likely to win.

Dude. Seriously. Tell us how many Termination of Parental Rights cases you have won in relation to the number of cases giving to you.  The only reason I want to know is to find out how much in false claims were generated during the time in privatized custody.

Instead, at the end of July, we call up local courts and ask them to send us TPR cases in need of an appellate lawyer. We accept the first six we get. Then our students scrutinize the record, draft briefs and deliver oral arguments at the Michigan Court of Appeals.

Oh, Precious, do you just like not know about the Title IV-A Poverty Means Test criteria for eligibility of foster care funding which means that the parents cannot afford an attorney?

No money; No justice.

Despite the randomness of our case assignments, every semester we discover laws being unenforced, which we bring to the attention of our appellate courts. Because of this, since 2015, our clinic has won roughly a third of our cases. We’ve gotten appellate courts to strike down a TPR statute for being unconstitutional, find that the Americans with Disabilities Act requires agencies to design service plans to accommodate the disabilities of parents in child welfare cases, and hold that incarcerated parents can plan for their children by arranging for relatives to care for them. Again, our students have done this even though our cases are randomly assigned to us.

Did you ever file a False Claims Act case on Medicaid Fraud in Child Welfare for the cases you were successful in reinstating parental rights? Oh, wait, there has never been a reinstatement of parental rights. Ever talk to Dan Beaton? I have. 

Our experience is not unique. In 2018, attorneys working with the Colorado Office of Respondent Counsel, a governmental agency that has overseen parent representation in the state since 2016, has gotten appellate courts in the state to find procedural violations in nearly one of out three cases. Advocates in other states with high quality appellate representation have achieved similar results.

Colorado? Oooooo..... Vivek......did you ever hear of Joseph Korbel or Claude d'Estre'e or Monica Petersen in Haiti when it comes to trafficking tiny humans?  Obviously not, which makes me think you are a generic personae as you have now lowered yourself to the have the Chronicles of Social Change, the notorious Clinton Propaganda machine for Silicon Valley in the financial fraud scheme called Predictive Modeling Crap.

These results deliver a straightforward conclusion – that child welfare systems need strong appellate advocates to enforce the law. In the past decade, both the federal government and states have passed an increasing number of laws to promote the interests of children involved with the foster care system. The federal government alone has passed four major pieces of legislation – the Fostering Connections to Success and Increasing Adoptions Act, the Child and Family Services Improvement and Innovation Act, the Preventing Sex Trafficking and Strengthening Families Act and the Family First Prevention Services Act.

Vivek!!! What are you doing? You are promulgating the peculiar institution.  You are advocating corporate layering of foreign private, children's trusts. Oh, wait. I got it.  You are a fake ass lil bitch who would sell your soul for a bit of credibility, if you are even real.

These laws, along with those enacted by states, have created a child welfare system governed by complicated procedures.

The procedures are not complicated. The procedures are christian law of chattels. You would know about Ecclesiastical Law if you were a licensed attorney, 

Yet talk to advocates on the ground, and they will describe laws that routinely go unenforced. Child welfare agencies fail to make reasonable efforts to prevent kids from entering foster care or to place siblings together. Courts don’t ask children about what sort of relationship they want with their birth parents before terminating those parents’ rights. And far too often, relatives aren’t informed about ongoing child welfare cases until it is far too late for them to get placement of their kin.

The list goes on and on. But without strong appellate advocacy, these laws – key to promoting good outcomes for children in foster care – will continue to get unenforced.

So how do we move forward? The recent federal policy change to permit states to use Title IV-E money to support the representation of parents and children in child welfare proceedings allows states to immediately increase the amount of funds to support quality appellate advocacy. States should move to create specialized appellate practices, like those that exist in New Jersey, Maryland and North Carolina, among other jurisdictions.

Money alone, however, won’t solve the problem. Appellate advocacy is a nuanced skill – involving meticulous research, writing and editing skills – and states must ensure that advocates have the necessary training to do this. Just last year, the National Legal Aid and Defender’s Association – for the first time – created a family defense track for its annual training for appellate attorneys, which provided participants with intensive feedback on their writing skills.

Based on the success of that training, this week, the Michigan Court Improvement Project is piloting a similar one for appellate attorneys. Each state’s Court Improvement Project must prioritize appellate advocacy as an essential component of the infrastructure needed in any functioning child welfare system.

In about two months, my appellate clinic will start getting new case assignments. I suspect that we’ll continue to find laws that aren’t being enforced. Each time we win a reversal or a remand from the Court of Appeals, we will continue to strengthen the legal infrastructure that is so crucial in ensuring the well-being of children. And even when we lose, we increase the legitimacy of our child welfare system by ensuring the public that it is acting in a matter consistent with statutes and the Constitution.

Cocktails & Popcorn: What Do Kim Kardashian & Barbara McQuade Have In Common? The Detroit Brady Impeachment Dilemma

Previously, on Cocktails & Popcorn, we entered into the nomenclature The Detroit Brady Impeachment Dilemma

If Kim Kardashian is championing getting people released from prison, basically, on exculpatory evidence the government sat on, then that means Kwame Kilpatrick may have a valid premise to petition Trump for a pardon.  

ML Elrich just did a podcast on the brilliance if Trump pardoned Kwame with Michael Bullotta, the one who prosecuted him.

Kwame said he would campaign for Trump.

Barbara McQuade is championing the road to impeachment on the premise that Trump is obstructing justice because he sat on information that could have stopped the 2018 election crap in Detroit, well, all over the nation.

That means Kwame is gonna snitch, and it is going to be absolutely glorious.

Cocktail & Popcorn: Sarah Sanders Has Received The Royal Trump Stinky Touch - The Role Of The Court Jester In Bearing Arms - Michelle Wolf Bears Witness

The Court Jester
the original new reporter
Is it just me, or execute another epic Trump royal troll?

It was but one year ago she was honored in a roasting ceremony.

I love heraldry.

This is what the court jesters used to do.

If those court jesters would tell lies, well, you know what they used to do when you would bear false witness into the public record.

Royalty of past did not have internet, let alone electricity back in the feudal days, but they did have the court jester, who would tell of tales of what was going on in the kingdom through parody and comedy.

The public would come and watch, for free, because it was public.

I call this Castiat Ridendo Mores

Comedy works because it masks the horrors no one wants to talk about.


Sarah Sanders and her brood hail from Arkansas, the land of grand juries into the public corruption of money laundering child welfare false claims into political campaigns into various, questionable operations throughout the christian networks.

Sarah Sanders is going back to her state where the Arkansas Finance Development Authority operates the Detroit Land Bank Authority running TARP and the Clinton Foundation, which is Corporate Shape Shifter, of a foreign, corporately layered human trafficking global operation.

Yes, my deary, you should most definitely run for governor because you will be running for your life.

Tell your daddy, I said, "hey."



Trump was so right.  

You just do not get it, Sarah.

This is about trafficking tiny humans.

I absolutely adore this man.

We are about to go deep.

Hold of on the refreshments.

We are going real and you need to experience it in the raw.

WH Press Secretary Sarah Sanders will leave office by the end of the month, Trump announces

President Trump announced Thursday on Twitter that White House Press Secretary Sarah Sanders will be leaving her position at the end of the month.

"After 3 1/2 years, our wonderful Sarah Huckabee Sanders will be leaving the White House at the end of the month and going home to the Great State of Arkansas," Trump said. "She is a very special person with extraordinary talents, who has done an incredible job! I hope she decides to run for Governor of Arkansas - she would be fantastic. Sarah, thank you for a job well done!"

The president has not yet named a replacement for the position.

Trump's announcement came moments before he made remarks at a White House event on its "Second Chance" program boosting hiring of criminals who have served their sentences.
Sanders called serving the president an "honor of a lifetime" and said she "couldn't be prouder" of the administration's work.

"I've loved every minute, even the hard minutes," Sanders said at the event, calling her role the "most special experience" of her life second only to being a mom of three.

Sanders later tweeted saying she is "blessed and forever grateful to @realDonaldTrump for the opportunity to serve and proud of everything he's accomplished. I love the President and my job. The most important job I'll ever have is being a mom to my kids and it's time for us to go home. Thank you Mr. President!"

Sanders, 36, and the daughter of former Arkansas Republican Gov. Mike Huckabee worked on her father’s presidential campaign during the 2016 Republican primary until he dropped out of the race. She then joined the Trump campaign and, subsequently, the Trump administration as a White House communications aide. She was promoted to White House press secretary in 2017, after the president’s first top spokesman, Sean Spicer, resigned from the position.

If she chooses to follow in her father's footsteps the seat for governor opens up in 2022.

Throughout her tenure at the White House, Sanders has come under fierce criticism from members of the press for being dishonest on the president's behalf during press briefings that were often contentious and emotional. Eventually, the press secretary stopped giving daily briefings altogether at the suggestion of the president who said the press covered her “rudely and inaccurately.”.

“I'm going to continue to be one of the most outspoken and loyal supporters of the president and his agenda and I know he's going to have an incredible six more years and get a lot more done,” Sanders said.

Huckabee also tweeted about the news of Sander's departure, taking the opportunity to praise his daughter calling her "a great one" and joking that he says that "with as much objectivity as Fake News CNN has towards @POTUS."



Mike Huckabee, according to Wikipedia:

Huckabee signed legislation to create a health insurance program which extended coverage to children of lower-income families, to be funded in part by Medicaid, SCHIP, and a tobacco industry lawsuit settlement.[8] The program, ARKids First, reduced the number of uninsured children to nine percent (compared with 12 percent for the nation) in 2003.[9] Also in his first year as governor Huckabee signed a partial birth abortion ban and a $7.6 Million Smart Start program for primary school students to learn "the basic skills of reading, math, and character." Huckabee vetoed a $140 million bill for capital improvements. The Arkansas General Assembly overrode the veto.[10]

Huckabee signed the Child Welfare Agency Licensing Act in 1997. This bill has provisions which allow religious groups to contract for social services with the state without having to compromise their principles. An excerpt reads,

Provided that the health, safety and welfare of children in the care of a child welfare agency is not endangered, nothing in this act shall be construed to permit the Board to promulgate or enforce any rule that has the effect of: (A) interfering with the religious teaching or instruction offered by a child welfare agency; (B) infringing upon the religious beliefs of the holder(s) of a child welfare agency license; (C) infringing upon the right of an agency operated by a religious organization to consider creed in any decision or action relating to admitting or declining to admit a child or family for services; (D) infringing upon the parents' right to consent to a child's participating in prayer or other religious practices while in the care of the child welfare agency; (E) prohibiting the use of corporal discipline.[11]

Huckabee made sure that state agencies were compliant with charitable choice.[12] His administration issued guidelines in October 2000, which allow religious groups to offer voluntary religious programs and to leave their religious artifacts on the walls as long as welfare clients are not pressured to convert and tax money doesn't directly underwrite them. Religious groups are allowed to reject a job candidate on religious grounds. The guidelines also guarantee that any client can receive alternative placement if the client objects to a religious provider.[13]

In a February 1998 presidential straw poll of 65 Christian Coalition leaders, Huckabee came in second to John Ashcroft and ahead of Steve Forbes, J. C. Watts and George W. Bush.[14]


On May 22, 1998, the Arkansas Ethics Commission fined Huckabee US$1,000 for failing to report campaign payments made to himself and his wife.[15] In October 1998 the Arkansas Times suggested Huckabee used a fund set up for the maintenance of the Governor's Mansion for his own personal use.[16][17] The Times later reported Huckabee was listed as the recipient of furniture given to the Governor's Mansion and not the Mansion itself.[18] Tom Mars, Huckabee's attorney, denied any misuse or inappropriate actions.[19]

FEC Chair Who Scolded Trump For Saying He MIGHT Take Oppo Research From a Foreigner Used to Work For Deep State Law Firm Perkins Coie

Ellen Weintraud, Perkins Coie Sucks,
FEC Chair
Democrat Weintraub was appointed by George W. Bush during a recess appointment.
One more fun fact about Weintraub — she worked for the DNC-Hillary Clinton-Deep State law firm Perkins Coie prior to being elected to FEC chair.
Per the FEC:
Commissioner Weintraub took office on December 9, 2002, after receiving a recess appointment; she was renominated and confirmed unanimously by the United States Senate on March 18, 2003. Commissioner Petersen was nominated and confirmed unanimously by the United States Senate on June 24, 2008. 
Prior to her appointment to the Commission, Ms. Weintraub was Of Counsel to Perkins Coie LLP and a member of its Political Law Group. Before joining Perkins Coie, Ms. Weintraub was Counsel to the Committee on Standards of Official Conduct for the U.S. House of Representatives (the House Ethics Committee). Ms. Weintraub received her B.A., cum laude, from Yale College and her J.D. from Harvard Law School.
Is this why Weintraub said nothing when Hillary Clinton paid for a junk Russian dossier and hid the payments by funneling the money through her law firm PERKINS COIE, worked with Ukrainians to obtain dirt on Trump Campaign Manager Paul Manafort and reportedly had foreign intelligence agencies spy on the Trump campaign?

In October of 2017, the Campaign Legal Center (CLC) filed an FEC complaint alleging the DNC and Hillary Clinton’s 2016 campaign committee violated campaign finance law because they failed to disclose the purpose and recipient of payments for the phony Steele dossier.

Is this also why the FEC is ignoring Hillary Clinton’s $84 million campaign finance scandal?
“One year and two months. That’s how long it’s been since a formal complaint was filed with the Federal Election Commission (FEC), alleging Hillary Clinton’s 2016 campaign orchestrated an $84 million campaign finance scandal — the largest in U.S. history,” said attorney Dan Backer in February of this year.

“Yet the FEC has done nothing to hold the Clinton campaign, dozens of Democratic officials, and hundreds of six-figure Democratic mega-donors accountable for breaking the law,” Backer added.
Why is Ellen Weintraub still at the FEC?? She’s ignoring obvious crimes committed by Hillary Clinton and the DNC yet warned President Trump over a hypothetical scenario.
Read attorney Dan Backer’s entire report about Hillary Clinton’s money laundering scam and the formal complaint he filed with the FEC here.

Grandma Duggar Drowns But Does She Have Real Estate In Her Will?

It seems Grandma Duggar was into real estate in Arkansas.

I wonder if she has a will.

The Duggars have always fascinated me.

Counting On Star Grandma Mary Duggar Was Found By Her Daughter After Drowning in PoolBefore Grandma Mary Duggar’s unexpected death, she spent some of the last hours of her life at one of the places she cherished most: church.

“On her last morning spent here on earth I drove Grandma to church where she worshiped her Savior.

Jessa (Duggar) Seewald, Grandma Mary Duggar and Michelle Duggar
Later that afternoon, she went to meet Him face to face! I’d say that’s probably how she would’ve chosen to finish out the day if she got to pick,” Mary’s granddaughter Jana Duggar revealed in an Instagram post.

On Sunday, June 9, the Counting On star tragically died at age 78 of accidental drowning in a swimming pool, Washington County Coroner Roger W. Morris confirmed to PEOPLE on Wednesday.

According to Morris, Mary was found by her daughter.

“Duggar slipped and fell into the pool and drowned,” Morris told PEOPLE on Thursday. “Her daughter Deanna discovered her body and alerted authorities, who pronounced her dead at the scene.”

News of Mary’s passing was first shared by the Duggars on their official Facebook page Sunday afternoon, where the “feisty” and “incredible” County On star was remembered by her famous family in a tribute post.

“We are so sad to share that Grandma Duggar (Mary) passed away Sunday afternoon, June 9th, 2019. Mary Lester Duggar grew up in Farmington, Arkansas and was married almost 50 years to J.L. (Jimmy Lee) Duggar who preceded her in death,” the post began.

“Mary found great joy in sharing her love for Jesus and her own story of how at age 15 she asked Christ to forgive her for her sins. It was at that time she committed the rest of her life to live for Him, a commitment she kept with devotion.”

The tribute continued on to highlight Grandma Duggar’s life successes, such as her work as a prime real estate broker and her most important role of all — being “Grandma” to her 21 grandchildren and 13 great-grandchildren.

Cocktails & Popcorn: House Intel Committee Has A Detroit Brady Rule Impeachment Dilemma

Image result for brandy and peaches
Brandy Impeachment
Detroit's newest cocktail
According to Wikipedia, Exculpatory Evidence means:

Exculpatory evidence is evidence favorable to the defendant in a criminal trial that exonerates or tends to exonerate the defendant of guilt. It is the opposite of inculpatory evidence, which tends to present guilt.
So, I guess that means Trump is obstructing justice by withholding evidence that would exonerate, for lack of a better word, an individual, since there has been no judicial action and no one will #sayhisname.

But then again, perhaps Trump is not obstructing justice because that IG Report burning a whole in his back pocket, contains that sealed, grand jury information, which would make POTUS a protected federal witness in an ongoing criminal proceeding.

Well, I guess the only way to find out is to call those impeachment hearings, but whoever shall they defer to, because we are dealing with "Legal Geniuses" (trademark pending), and the House Judiciary is a hot mess right now.

I guess that would mean that the Members of the U.S. House Committee would just have to #sayhisname, but that may be a bit uncomfortable, considering the possibility that my Sweetie is the one burning a whole in Trump's back pocket.

But, hey.....what do I know?

I know this is what I am going to start calling the Detroit Brady Rule Impeachment Dilemma

SENATE JUDICIARY: To document Or Not To Document - That Is The Census Trafficking Tiny Humans Global Expansoin

Grassley is calling out re-cycling of children at the border.

These agencies like Bethany Christian and Samaritas, get big money in re-cycling.

We need a cyberwall like the Vatican has.

Diane Feinstein is upset about border children being snatched from parents, where the children are put in state custody, sleeping on floors, dirty, hungry, but not once did she ask about foster care and adoption, where the same thing has been going on since we founded this great nation.

Priorities.

These people want to start issuing the latest and greatest Social Impact Bond..Baby Bonds.

Who said databases do not exist to be sold?



There are tens of thousands of chattel being ranched in the antiquated DHS human containment system.

But, however shall congress fix the border?

Have no fear, the christians are here!

Happy Residuals Of The Peculiar Institution Month! - Bethany Christian Joins Up With UNICEF To Re-Engineer The African Slave Trade - The Children's Christian Crusade For More Orphanages

In honor of Juneteenth, the U.S. celebrates, well, not really because the majority of Americans have no idea of what it means, the emancipation of slaves with the signing of the Emancipation Proclamation.

According to Wikipedia:
Juneteenth, also known as Juneteenth Independence Day or Freedom Day, is an American holiday that commemorates the June 19, 1865, announcement of the abolition of slavery in the U.S. state of Texas, and more generally the emancipation of enslaved African Americans throughout the former Confederate States of America. Its name is a portmanteau of "June" and "nineteenth", the date of its celebration.[1][2] Juneteenth is recognized as a state holiday or special day of observance in 45 states.[3]
But slavery was never abolished because of the Exception Clause, or rather the word "except".


We need a more sustainable solution to the global orphan crisis

A toddler orphaned in the recent earthquake props himself against a
couch as he practices walking, inside one of several dozen homes for orphans
at SOS Children's Village, outside Port-au-Prince, Haiti.
Wednesday, April 14, 2010.
I understand why people think orphanages effectively address the global orphan crisis. According to UNICEF, there are around 140 million orphans currently in the world. And orphanages can provide a place where children are safe with basic needs met. They have toys, clothing and shelter. They go to school. They sometimes have a swing set.

This is from the reference to UNICEF:

In keeping with this and the agency’s commitment to adapt to the evolving realities of the AIDS crisis, UNICEF commissioned an analysis of population household surveys across 36 countries. Designed to compare current conditions of orphans and non-orphans, the global analysis suggests we should further expand our scope, focusing less on the concept of orphanhood and more on a range of factors that render children vulnerable. These factors include the family's ownership of property, the poverty level of the household, the child’s relationship to the head of the household, and the education level of the child’s parents, if they are living. In UNICEF’s experience, these are the elements that can help identify both children and their families – whether this term includes living parents, grandparents or other relatives – who have the greatest need for our support.


Orphanages allow loving, well-intentioned people to see the direct results of their donations and their work in a tangible way. But are they what’s really best for children? Decades of research tells us no.  It’s time to change how we respond to the Global Orphan Crisis. First, we need to understand that in many ways it’s not an orphan crisis, but an “orphanage” crisis, and in order to usher in real change, we must start to visualize a solution that doesn’t have four sturdy walls:

Families.

Forced migration.

Human trafficking.

Orphanages, however loving and compassionate the staff, founders and surrounding community, are not adequate substitutes for real families. Studies have shown that institutional care – like orphanages - affects the way a child’s brain develops, causing dramatic developmental delays and even stunts physical growth; institutionalized children average 1.0–1.5 standard deviations below the mean for parent-reared children with respect to physical growth and behavioral and mental development. In fact, decades of research have shown us how children’s brains develop differently when affected by abuse and neglect. This changes how children form relationships and limits their ability to attach to others.

Orphanages are human plantations, warehouses of god, complete with a recordkeeping database of legacies, created by christian missionaries to "Salvage the Souls" by "Saving the Savages" by indoctrinating the society to the socioeconomic system of the tax exempt god.

If parents are humans, where humans are carbon. and climate change is about reducing carbon, would that then be one reason behind the need for more orphanages?


Then, there is the logistical issue of a few workers caring for many children. Young children are hardwired to need more than just food and water—they need attention and touch and positive affirmation from a consistent and present role model. Even the most good-hearted orphanage employees cannot possibly fulfill these emotional needs to a large group of children in a truly satisfactory manner. Groups of well-intentioned youth groups and church volunteers can also not meet these needs for children.  Everything about growing up in an orphanage has life-altering consequences.

There are opportunities, already laid out in this World Bank video.

Think about your own family. If something awful were to happen, you wouldn’t want your child would go to an orphanage. Not even one with toys, a school and a swing set.

Parents in the United States often make arrangements for their children to live with relatives should anything unexpected happen, and when that’s not an option, we rely on foster care. By the 1950s, more children lived in foster homes than in orphanages in the United States. Today, U.S. orphanages have largely disappeared with foster care taking their place.

According to UNICEF data, an estimated 90 percent of “orphaned” children around the world actually have at least one living parent. Some parents surrender children to an orphanage because an extenuating circumstance – poverty, illness, regional violence, war or displacement – leads them to that point. If my child is in an orphanage, they think, at least they’ll eat. At least they’ll have a chance to go to school. At least they’ll have a chance at life.

For parents facing desperate options, poverty, the orphanage down the road that promises food and education becomes a good option and surrendering that child is the loving choice. They see it as the best option – or, often, their only option – for their child’s survival or education.

Poverty should never be a reason to place a child in an orphanage but it is andthere is nothing anyone can do about it – orphanages were never made to meet this need. They were once necessary in the midst of large-scale crises, like the HIV/AIDS crisis, that took the lives of entire villages. But now, orphanages should be a last resort, because there is a better way: Family-centered, individualized care.

Foster care that has been contextualized to function effectively in developing countries should be the alternative to orphanages. It’s time to change our understanding of orphanages to reflect the fact that most of the children in them are not actually orphaned.  The majority of children in orphanages worldwide have one or two living parents. Family preservation and family strengthening programs, like temporary foster care, should replace orphanages and be offered to help assist parents thrive and remain together with their children.

No. It is human trafficking. 

Stealin'.

Christians who feel strongly the biblical call to care for the widow and orphan, and who have led the missions work to build orphanages in the past, are uniquely qualified to lead a movement of change within the Western Church.  It is time to stand against orphanage-based care and instead support local, community-based foster care around the world. Foster care was the right decision in the U.S. in the early 1900s and it’s the right decision now on a Global stage.

Of the past????

Girlfriend. That is called the residuals of the peculiar institution.

Like human trafficking?

But the Global effort must foremostly empower the local leaders and social work professionals to lead the change in their own communities. At Bethany, our goal with sharing a foster care blueprint is always to make sure our presence is temporary and that we ultimately are able to step away and let local governments and community-based organizations take the reins. This ensures quality family-based care and support services are sustainable and tailored to every community’s particular needs.

Do your understand you are promulgating human trafficking?  No, seriously, you actually published this into the public record. You need to re-read this, with your eyes closed, and think of yourself as a parent who has had their child snatched from their arms, based upon an anonymous call.

A family setting best supports a child’s spiritual, physical, psychological, social, and emotional needs. I urge Christians, churches and global outreach organizations across the U.S. during this National Foster Care Month to help us in this movement to support families, reunify children in orphanages with their families and establish foster care systems around the world, because every child is made in the image of God, and each of them matters.

Fuck you.

OVERSIGHT: House Oversight Committee to vote on holding Barr, Ross in contempt - SCOTUS v. Congress - Who Will Speak First Upon Trafficking Tiny Humans

This is about the 2020 Census question of citizenship.

So, riddle me this:

If a child is a citizen of Country A, and enters the County B "illegally", where the child from Country A, is placed in the legal custody of a state, privately contracted, foreign corporation, state licensed Child Placing Agency, through an ex-parte legal proceeding, under exigent circumstances, where parental rights are terminated and transferred to the new, foreign corporate parent, being Country C, what is the citizenship of that child?

No one wants to speak upon the industry of trafficking tiny humans.

Now, riddle me this:

If a U.S. child is legally kidnapped by Child Protective Services, functioning as foreign Public Private Partnerships, like Bethany Christian, through the U.S. Conference of Catholic Bishops, placed under aegis of the Guardian Ad Litem of the corporation, is the citizenship of the child Israeli?

Ok, now let us just bifurcate the body and the spirit, or the legal personae, the identity, and the deposit of the chattel of the child, or rather the identity, into a trust, where there are insurance policies, what is the citizenship of the soul?

This is about residuals of the peculiar institution and those databases and intellectual property, which are all part of the children's trusts that these people, who refuse to speak upon this, are in this Committee.

The Census counts body and souls because there is so much fraud, it would completely unravel society as we know it.

This is the destruction of voting rights.

This is gerrymandering.

These are crimes of war.

Welcome to Detroit.

Oversight committee Chairman Elijah Cummings can now, with the assent of the House leadership, file suit and ask a judge to order William Barr and Wilbur Ross to provide the census materials he wants.

The separation-of-powers standoff between Congress and the executive branch deepened on Wednesday over a dispute about access to materials involving the controversial citizenship question planned for the 2020 census.

The Justice Department notified the House oversight committee that it's withholding documents sought by the panel's chairman because it says they're shielded by executive privilege — the doctrine that permits an administration to conceal some of its internal workings.


House Votes To Let Its Leaders Pursue Contempt Lawsuits In Trump Inquiries
The letter from Assistant Attorney General Stephen Boyd arrived electronically at the Capitol at the same time Chairman Elijah Cummings, D-Md., had convened a hearing at which the committee debated whether to find Attorney General William Barr and Commerce Secretary Wilbur Ross in contempt of Congress.

After a day's worth of discussion and amendments, it did, voting 24 to 15 by the late afternoon on contempt for the Cabinet officials.

Rep. Justin Amash, R-Mich., who has lately stepped up his criticism of Trump, broke with Republicans to support the measure.

The dispute over documents

Boyd's letter blamed Cummings for the administration's invocation of privilege.

The Justice Department has already provided tens of thousands of documents and access to witnesses but nothing is ever enough, officials say — and Democrats' threats of contempt meant these talks can't continue.

Justice Department spokeswoman Kerri Kupec said after the Oversight Committee contempt vote made no sense.

"The committee's attempt to define the Department of Justice's good-faith cooperation as 'contempt' defies logic," she said. "Today's action by Chairman Cummings and his committee undermines Congress's credibility with the American people."

The Justice Department has provided Congress with tens of thousands of documents and access to witnesses on the census matter, Kupec said, over months of prior negotiations.

Cummings and the Democrats blame Barr, Ross and the administration for what they've called an effort to "stonewall" their investigation.

Critics argue that Trump's administration wants to use a question about citizenship on the 2020 census to suppress some responses, including those of Latinos, and Democrats say they want unredacted communications to see how the question was discussed inside the government.

"The census is critical to our democracy and our constituents," Cummings said. "We must protect the integrity of the Census, and we must stand up for Congress' authority under the Constitution to conduct meaningful oversight.

The action in the committee on Wednesday followed a vote by the full House on Tuesday authorizing chairmen such as Cummings to file civil contempt lawsuits in order to try to obtain testimony or evidence.

That's what may happen now following the oversight committee session on Wednesday: Cummings, with the assent of the House leadership, could file suit and ask a judge to order Barr and Ross to provide the census materials he wants.

Republicans have criticized Democrats' litigation strategy as a waste of taxpayer dollars given the court costs involved and also as a dangerous road for the House. If members of Congress file suit but lose, Republicans warn, they could harm the oversight powers of the House over the long term.

Cocktalis & Popcorn: Does Justin Amash Know Mariia Butina? - He Resigned From House Freedom Caucus

Justin Amash if from Michigan.

Justin Amish knows John Conyers, Jr.

Justin Amash read the Mueller Report that was in the basement of the Rayburn Building, for six weeks, where only a handful of Members took the opportunity to look at it.

Grand Rapids is in his Congressional District, where the DeVos Dynasty was created.

Justin Amash knows about Medicaid Fraud in Child Welfare, Alpha Bank and Spectrum Health.

Justin Amash knows about the Kent County Land Bank.

Justin Amash knows about the Michigan GOP and its relations with the NRA.

Justin Amash knows about SIGTARP.

I am wondering if Justin Amash knows Mariia Butina.

We should definitely ask him in House Judiciary impeachment proceedings.

REPUBLICAN TRUMP CRITIC JUSTIN AMASH RESIGNS FROM HOUSE FREEDOM CAUCUS

Michigan Republican Rep. Justin Amash resigned from the House Freedom Caucus Monday, citing his efforts to not be “a further distraction for the group.”

“I have the highest regard for [the caucus], and they’re my close friends,” Amash, who is a founding member of the House Freedom Caucus and the lone Republican of the group to call for impeaching the president, told CNN. “I didn’t want to be a further distraction for the group.”

The libertarian congressman’s decision comes in the wake of a series of tweets last month accusing President Donald Trump of having committed “impeachable offenses.”

“Here are my principal conclusions,” Amash, an outspoken GOP critic of the president, on Twitter last month. “1. Attorney General Barr has deliberately misrepresented Mueller’s report. 2. President Trump has engaged in impeachable conduct. 3. Partisanship has eroded our system of checks and balances. 4. Few members of Congress have read the report.”

“Contrary to Barr’s portrayal, Mueller’s report reveals that President Trump engaged in specific actions and a pattern of behavior that meet the threshold for impeachment,” Amash continued.

The Michigan lawmaker’s stand likely alienated him from many of his Republican colleagues. Kentucky Sen. Rand Paul called the Mueller Report itself the “antithesis of libertarianism” when discussing Amash’s position. GOP chairwoman Ronna McDaniel accused him of “parroting the Democrats’ talking points on Russia.”

Amash told Freedom Caucus members about his decision at a board meeting Monday night, CNN reported.

“It was a positive meeting. It wasn’t negative,” he told CNN.

CNN reported that Amash “emphasized his decision was voluntary and that he remains on good terms with his colleagues.”

Cocktails & Popcorn: Kavanaugh Is Back And So Is Another Scandal - Chua & The Constitutional Crisis

Have you ever wondered how SCOTUS does its legal research?

The clerks!

Yes, once Mommy and Daddy drops those dollars for the sheep skin, the newly graduated Yale "Legal Genius" (trademark pending) gets her first job with SCOTUS.

But in this case, it looks like a quid pro quo, but hey, what do I know?

I know we are heading for a Constitutional Crisis.

I also know those clerks get emails, with pre-written, private, foreign interest opinions for the Justices to use.

Kavanaugh defender Amy Chua's daughter gets Supreme Court job with Kavanaugh

Amy Chua and Brett Kavanaugh
Three days after President Trump nominated Brett Kavanaugh as his pick for the Supreme Court, the Wall Street Journal published an op-ed by Amy Chua, a Yale Law professor better known as the author of the 2011 parenting memoir “Battle Hymn of the Tiger Mother,” who praised Kavanaugh as a mentor to young women.

Chua, a member of the school’s clerkships committee, had placed eight women with Kavanaugh, including her daughter Sophia Chua-Rubenfeld, who had been accepted to serve with Kavanaugh, then a circuit court judge.

Some critics called the op-ed self-serving, arguing that Chua was simply setting her daughter up for a Supreme Court clerkship once Kavanaugh was confirmed.

On Monday, the Supreme Court announced that Sophia Chua-Rubenfeld had been hired by Kavanaugh for a clerkship beginning in October.

On Monday, the Supreme Court announced that Sophia Chua-Rubenfeld had been hired by Kavanaugh for a clerkship beginning in October.

Neither Chua nor her daughter responded to requests from Yahoo News for comment.

Kavanaugh was confirmed to the Supreme Court in October following a bitterly divisive nomination fight that included allegations of misbehavior from multiple women, which he denied. During his confirmation hearing, Christine Blasey Ford testified that Kavanaugh had attempted to rape her at a party when they were teenagers.

While the Senate weighed those allegations, the Guardian first reported that Chua and her husband, Jed Rubenfeld, advised female students that it was “not an accident” that Kavanaugh’s female law clerks all “looked like models” and to project a “model-like” femininity if they wanted to clerk for him.

Chau denied the allegations.

"For the more than tec years I've known him, Judge Kavanaugh's first and only litmus test in hiring has been excellence," she said in a subsequent statement.  “As I wrote in the Wall Street Journal, he has also been an exceptional mentor to his female clerks. Among my proudest moments as a parent was the day I learned our daughter would join those ranks.” 

Rubenfeld himself was the subject of an internal investigation at Yale concerning allegations of inappropriate behavior with female students.
