For the month of April, organizations across the nation, regardless of political affiliations, come together to promote the continuance of keeping paychecks flowing by promoting propaganda.
There is no such thing as child abuse, but there is such thing as assault and battery, mayhem, torture, etc. Why must harms against children be watered down to create flimsy reasons to take children away from a family.
Poverty is not a crime, but it is considered as grounds to remove a child. This is child abuse propaganda.
Not being able to provide medical resources is considered grounds to remove a child. This is child abuse propaganda.
The following is from a previous post, honoring one of the first leaders in the Child Abuse Propaganda Industry."
Generating false data with public dollars to make public policy is not a crime. Neither is there malicious intent when publishing false research to further a compelling government interest. It is just standard operations in the realm of child welfare.
Cornell maintains the National Data Archive on Child Abuse and Neglect which, through an exclusion process, will only select research favorable to its funders. Any organization that receives federal grants for research in child welfare must submit its data to Cornell. If the data are not favorable to the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services Children's Bureau, then the data will not be accepted and all future funding to that particular organization will be terminated.
Some examples of data that Cornell and the Children's Bureau will not accept:
Children who have been abused and neglected in foster care;
Children who have died in foster care;
Children who have been sexually abused in foster care;
Children who have been improperly placed in foster care.
Cornell publishes and maintains false and biased research to further the compelling governmental interest of covering up the fact that they do not know what the hell they are doing.
And Cornell gets paid for it.
So, to pay tribute to these great propaganda leaders, I would like to encourage everyone to write a letter, very simply asking:
National Child Abuse Prevention Partner Organizations
To whom it may concern:
