The Love of Money Spells “Trouble”

Follow the trail!  Not your reptilian mammal brain!   Guess what reptiles are:  Cold-blooded.  They adapt to the environment.  Human beings are mammals.  They should be a little more independent.

Money is fine as a means to an end.  As an end itself, it tends to blind, and it gets pretty cold-hearted when that’s the end, forget the means…..and civil rights…

Despite all the hot-button, gut-wrenching, paper-selling issues in the news headlines, and on this blog, I consider my Phoebe Factoids post one of the most relevant.  It talks about what happened to two men who looked at the books, found them cooked, and some of the strategies to shut them up and shut them, their professions, and most especially, their story, down. 

The Profit in Nonprofits and 2 Men in Albany, Georgia

I just caught wind of the story on TV. 

Since then, in Georgia, we have a former Georgia State Senator, Nancy Schaefer, reporting on rampant abuse and a system that is probably beyond reform — and her husband — who turned up with bullet holes in them, and the “murder/suicide” label doesn’t quite appear to fit.  I wonder who is going to finish reporting on this (investigative), or whether the public’s head is going to get turned again, ADHD-style (distract with worse trauma), and forget the bravery (if perhaps not caution) of this woman:

Another Mother Writes from THIS perspective:
“CPS CORRUPTION & HUMAN TRAFFICKING EXPOSED IN SAN LUIS OBISPO (California)”

About the Author:

Kathleen Dearinger is a Mother to her 16 year old daughter who was “kidjacked” from school by CPS of San Luis Obispo. Her daughter who was not abused or neglected was taken without a protective custody warrant by a biased social worker who never investigated or even visited her house. Her daughter was isolated from her and traumatized by workers at CPS for 5 long months before being sent out of state in the middle of the night against her wishes. She remains a hostage as of this writing and is unable to contact her mother at the direction of a social workers with CPS, who falsely claims she is on a “voluntary placement”. Ms. Dearinger has requested the assistance from Senator Maldonado, Assemblyman Blakeslee, the police, the FBI, and many other agencies only to find that no one investigates or oversees CPS workers. This is why we have over 500,000 children in foster care today.

SHE MENTIONS NANCY SCHAEFER NEAR THE BOTTOM OF THIS EXCERPT:

The standard practices of CPS offices throughout California and other states have been under scrutiny for the last several years. Since President Clinton placed into effect The Adoption Safe Families Act block grants have increased the number of children who are in the system. The state pays extra incentives for adopting out children over the age of 9 years old and additional funds if they require mental services or have other special needs. As a result of these block grants almost 50% of all children in CPS’s care are between the ages of 13-19 years old. Every day 36 children an hour are taken by CPS throughout the United States. In California alone more than 20% of all children are in foster care.

This is an industry, which has grown by huge proportions and must be reined in. The Gestapo type tactics currently being used by County and State agencies to increase revenue from federal sources may provide jobs today for the local economy but is having a negative impact on many levels. Good families are being torn apart and children are dying under the State’s care. When CPS takes children in error they rarely return them right away. The families are subjected to endless classes and programs whether or not they are guilty. The parents suffer great financial hardships because they are forced to retain expensive independent legal counsel. Many families lose their jobs and their homes trying to get their children out of the system. Some attorney’s are working in collision with CPS and help keep children in the system because it’s profitable, but most will agree that CPS is in fact corrupt.

Common practices of CPS agencies include: Not investigating before removing a child, taking children into state custody based upon here say, taking children from school without a “Protective Custody Warrant”, manipulating the Court system in criminal cases against the parents who are improperly prosecuted, obstruction of justice, fabricating documents, omitting facts, coercing minors, deception, isolating children from their parents, breaking bonds, traumatizing children, negative therapy, and placing children in unsafe foster homes. Children are not being evaluated right away by a doctor or seeing child advocates such as CASA. Social workers have been known to go on “witch hunts” against parents, influencing doctors, and ruining parents medical files. Many CPS agencies work in collusion with therapists who give parents false “mental conditions” which is used against them in court. Family court is “secret” so there is no jury or fair trial. Children are being heard in Judges chambers so many testimonies cannot be documented on Court record.

Many judges who rule on family court cases also sit on the boards of phony nonprofit organizations created to generate state adoption/foster care grants via federal funding. San Luis Obispo CPS has politicians heading non-profit organizations and Judges hosting “Adoption Saturdays”. California’s 2003 Little Hoover Commission Report said up to 70 percent of children in foster care should never have been removed from their homes in the first place. Children who complain about foster care or beg to go home are either placed on psychotropic medication and are sometimes sent out of State. California’s website for children up for adoption can be found at: www.adoptuskids.org

Dr. Moore who is the National Director of legislative affairs for the American Family Rights Association is heading up chapters under the NAACP. Children’s rights organizations, parents, and independent non-profit agencies are also joining in the fight against CPS corruption and human trafficking. Senator Nancy Schaffer recently passed a new law that went into effect in Oklahoma and we in California are hopeful that our state will soon follow.

 

ODDITIES IN THE NANCY SCHAEFER CASE

Oddities in the Nancy Schaefer “Suicide” Case(published 3/10/2010)

By Garland Favorito – Infowars.com

On Friday, former Senator Nancy Schaefer and her husband were found dead in their home in Habersham County. Even before a GBI investigation could be initiated, media outlets began pronouncing that their death was a “murder-suicide” and shut off most public comment posting on their web sites. The “murder suicide” theory implies that Sen. Schaefer’s husband shot her and then killed himself (or vice versa). Both Habersham County and the Georgia Bureau of Investigation began investigating the case as a “murder suicide” rather than the more obvious “murder made to look like suicide”. Like so many people, I have known former Sen. Nancy Schaefer for 15 years and spoken to several people who know her better than I do. They believe that the “murder suicide” theory is highly unlikely for any one of the following reasons:

1. It is totally against Nancy Schaefer’s consistently strong commitment to the sanctity of life principles that she has fought so valiantly to uphold;

2. Nancy and her husband, Bruce, have five children and more than a dozen grandchildren who they would not choose to leave behind so abruptly;

3. Bruce’s problem with cancer was corrected and under control so there was no reason to end his life as one senator tried to imply;

4. Nancy or Bruce would not likely agree to commit such an act that violates the fundamental principles of their Christian faith;

5. Bruce was retired and the couple did not appear to be in any type of dire financial crisis that would lead them to commit such acts;

6. Bruce and Nancy knew that her sister who had Alzheimer’s disease needed her to help take care of her;

7. Friends who knew the couple best state that Bruce would simply not have the capability to kill his wife;

8. Nancy was dedicated, as a national leader, to help needy people overcome abuse within Child Protective Services organizations;

9. Nancy was actively exposing corruption within the Department of Family & Child Services (DFCS) including actions by the DFCS director in the county where she lived.

10. Nancy knew that she was needed in the fight against child sex slave trafficking in Atlanta which has one of the highest activity rates in the country;

11. Bruce was highly supportive of Nancy’s work for decades and would have little or no reason to suddenly try to kill her at such a critical juncture in her career.

Specifically in Georgia, former Senator Nancy Schaefer had found during the last few years that:

– in Georgia housed children in a foster home with a known pedophile who molested the children.

– in Habersham County failed to remove six children from a home where they are being abused and tortured.

– in Georgia turned two girls over to a California father who had a pornographic video business.

A report that Nancy Schaefer produced on these remarkable cases can be found here:

http://fightcps.com/2008/02/29/report-of-georgia-senator-nancy-schaefer-on-cps-corruption/

Nancy Schaefer was also interviewed extensively by talk show host Alex Jones about corruption in Child Protection Services nationally. A multi-part series of her interview and an Eagle Forum presentation can be found on You Tube here:

http://www.youtube.com/results?search_query=nancy+schaefer&search_type=&aq=f

In addition, Senator Schaefer led opposition to HB582 and SB304, two bills introduced by fellow Republicans that would have likely resulted in increasing child sex slave trafficking. These bills would have made it legal for teenagers to participate in certain illicit acts. The bills effectively removed the legal authority that police now have to pick teenagers up and get them into protective custody so that they can no longer be pimped for those acts.

As President of Georgia Eagle Forum, Nancy Schaefer planned to be in Alabama this weekend for an Eagle Forum convention. Instead she chose to stay in Georgia to develop new information that would have further exposed corruption in DFCS and beyond. Many Eagle forum members who were close to Sen. Schaefer were aware of her courageous efforts. None of them believe that either she or her husband was involved in any type of suicide.

It is particularly ironic that the Atlanta Journal Constitution (AJC) chose to quote State Sen. Don Thomas in their March 26 article about Sen. Schaefer’s death. The AJC portrayed him as a friend of the couple even though he lives on the other side of the state from the Schaefer family and was diametrically opposed to many of their core beliefs. Sen. Thomas, the Chairman of the Health and Human Services Committee, immediately propagated and expanded the “murder-suicide” theory without any first-hand knowledge or evidence. That is very disturbing considering it is his committee that should have been helping to clean up the corruption at DFCS. Activists supporting Sen. Schaefer explained that he constantly advocated increased power and authority for DFCS in spite of the evidence showing the organization was misusing that authority.

With Nancy Schaefer no longer on the scene the question may be raised as to how best to continue her legacy. I believe that she would want conservatives, progressives, libertarians, constitutionalists as well as grass roots Democrats and Republicans throughout Georgia to unite and work to rectify the corruption in DFCS and eliminate child sex slave trafficking in Georgia.

THE CORRUPT BUSINESS OF CHILD PROTECTIVE SERVICES

BY: Nancy Schaefer
Senator, 50th District

. . .

In this report, I am focusing on the Georgia Department of Family and Children Services (DFCS). However, I believe Child Protective Services nationwide has become corrupt and that the entire system is broken almost beyond repair. I am convinced parents and families should be warned of the dangers.

The Department of Child Protective Services, known as the Department of Family and Children Service (DFCS) in Georgia and other titles in other states, has become a “protected empire” built on taking children and separating families. This is not to say that there are not those children who do need to be removed from wretched situations and need protection. This report is concerned with the children and parents caught up in “legal kidnapping,” ineffective policies, and DFCS who do does not remove a child or children when a child is enduring torment and abuse. (See Exhibit A and Exhibit B)

 

Here’s another one from “infowars.com”:

CPS Warrior Nancy Schaefer Gunned Down

Infowars.com
March 29, 2010

From the Associated Press:

State investigators say the husband of former state Senator Nancy Schaefer shot his wife before turning the gun on himself. The couple’s bodies were found in their north Georgia home Friday. The Georgia Bureau of Investigation conducted autopsies on the Schaefer’s Saturday—investigators say all evidence points to the deaths as a murder-suicide. The bodies of Nancy and Bruce Schaefer, 73 and 74 years old respectively, were found by their daughter at the couple’s home in Clarkesville. Nancy Schaefer was a two-term state Senator representing Georgia’s 50th district. She lost her seat in 2008. Schaefer was also a candidate for mayor of Atlanta, Georgia lieutenant governor and governor of the state.

The corporate media does not bother to mention that Schaefer exposed the abuses of CPS and the international child sex slavery ring.

“Investigators told the Associated Press they believe Bruce Schaefer, 74, shot his wife once in the back while she slept in the bedroom early Friday morning and then shot himself in the head. Police found a handgun near his body and several letters written to family members, including a suicide note,” reports the Associated Baptist Press.

Other reports indicate Bruce Schaefer shot himself in the chest. People who commit suicide usually shoot themselves in the head.

“Contrary to early reports that Bruce Schaefer had cancer, the Gainesville Times reported March 27 that the couple’s daughter, who discovered the bodies, told the local sheriff her father was not suffering from any serious illness at the time of the shootings. Habersham County Sheriff Joey Terrell said some of the letters mentioned serious financial problems and speculated that might have been a motive,” Associated Baptist Press also reported.

Appearing on the Alex Jones Show last May, Schaefer detailed how CPS is involved in child trafficking rings (see video below). After watching Schaefer’s interview with Jones, if you think Schaefer was involved in a suicide pact with her husband, you may also be interested in a famous bridge for sale in Brooklyn.

ETC.

The “Supervised Visitation” (and “mediation”) models, heavily promoted by “Duluth Abuse Intervention Project” and so forth, a finger of the palm I would describe as (apparently) MPDI (Minnesota Program Development Inc.) are basically the CPS model applied to women, in particular, leaving domestic violence.  You can look at the funding on-line (usaspending.gov, taggs.hhs.gov grants recipients) on your own time (and I have some, herein).   

CHILD SUPPORT AGENCIES are involved in administering and tipping the scales.  Broke people don’t fight court battles too well. …  FATHERHOOD GRANTS ARE involved, as our DOMESTIC VIOLENCE GRANTS THAT GO AWRY.

A few good audits are likely to more than a lot of emotional verbiage.  But what this DOES deal with are matters of life and death, as well as life-changing trauma, needless.  Unchecked, it’s going to produce a wide-scale traumatized populace, and a very dependent one, too.

TAKE A LOOK AT THE PATTENS OF THE PHOEBE FACTOIDS (ALBANY, GEORGIA CASE), AND THE PLAYERS INVOLVED, AND WHAT THEY UNCOVERED, ALSO THE THREATS THEY RECEIVED (HIRED SECURITY), and ATTRIBUTIONS…

NOW, UNDERSTAND THAT IN THE FAMILY COURTS, CPS, AND CHILD-TRAFFICKING ISSUES, WE ARE DEALING NOT JUST WITH MILLIONS OF $$ (TAX-EXEMPT) ON THE THEORY THAT THESE ORGANIZATIONS ARE HELPING THE HELPLESS, and not scamming the public, AND ADD TO THE MIX, THE MULTI-MILLION (BILLION?) AND GLOBAL TRAFFIC IN YOUNG CHILDREN. 

Here’s a recent case where (acc. to the press, anyhow) a well-meaning therapist tried to fulfil her responsibility to report sexual abuse and emotional retaliation on female JUNIOR HIGH students, she says, resulted in retaliation for her.  She filed a lawsuit:

Therapist suing Martinez school district

 

This one should be interesting.

Meanwhile, a reminder that — as we all know — the real children at risk for sexual abuse absolutely come mostly from single-parent homes.  Here’s an “example” of that, same area:

Teen’s Account Unravels Decades of Sexual Abuse by Bay Area Swim Coach 

 

And, she had a father in the home.  A youth pastor, mandated, reported. I wonder, had it been happening within the church ranks, would the report have gone down the same way?  But thank God, he did…

THIS WEEKEND —

 WHISTLEBLOWER CHILDREN’S CONFERENCES IN SACRAMENTO, AND DAVIS, CA!

Just for a reminder:

Life, liberty, and pursuit of happiness.

Reptilian Brain thinks:

It’s the fatherhood guys versus the feminazis.  It’s the libertarians versus everyone else.  It’s the progressives versus the conservative fundamentalists (name your religion…).  Did I mention any racial categories yet? 

Money-smart brain:  Follow the trail.  What’s the financial incentive?
