[This email is a reaction/response to hearing who is

sponsoring the rescue of girls and young women half a globe away,

while I know too much about what’s happening to them in the USA.

Very tired/stressed today and probably not that great a post.  But the material in it is relevant.]

Why is it the rich, famous, and well-networked are always ready to globe-trot and help women & children in other countries, while ignoring what the same organizations they network is doing to women, women’s rights, children (boys and girls both), human rights, individual rights, and just about anything that the right to be extorted by our own government — in the USA?

Last night on TV, again the international journalists were helping girls in poverty and illiteracy in other countries; and these girls deserve help.  Digital storytelling definitely gets a boost when Meg Ryan, or Gabrielle Union (with a clip from Hillary Clinton — whose husband in 1996 signed a welfare reform bill which undercut American mothers’ safety and self-sufficiency in favor of marriage & fatherhood programming!)  can make a work of art out of the drama of survival half a globe away:

Let me count the networks:

(this happens when you search a street address; the 1998 foundation on Hearst Avenue, Berkeley, California, the SF Bay Area being one of the most expensive areas in the country to live, and nearby (VERY nearby) to cities with some of the highest homicides.
The local governmental (county, district attorney, police — from top to bottom) leadership in this area and in California as a whole, has been disgraceful, as have the courts; women and children are getting shot through walls while sleeping in their homes, abducted, shot in tollbooths, shot in church parking lots, stabbed and left to die on the roadside, killed and ending up in the trunk of a car a few hours after the on-probation ex had passed a Positive Male Skills class with flying colors; a kidnapped GIRL was kept as a prostitutes and BRED by a married (by the way, Caucasian) pervert on probation in suburban Antioch (Garrido) — and that’s for 18 years.  She raised two girls in a ramshackle set of tents in the backyard, homeschooling them as best she could, leading them to believe she was an older sister.
Damages cost this state about $29 million for their screwups in monitoring Mr. Garrido.
There has been absolute unbelievable travesty and murder of mothers and mothers’ co-workers, relatives, and on occasion police officers, surrounding situations where a mother was trying to stay alive by separating from a psychotic.  My list above there cites specific cases involving custody matters (for the most part).
A woman in Oakland was found hogtied around street fixtures and burnt to death.  The people who discovered her thought she was a pile of rags.  A mother of two was found (after convicting the ex of murder) buried in shallow graves after routine “visitation” of the children.  A little girl subject to a custody battle where the mother actually worked for the DA’s office was abducted during a court-ordered exchange, and the Amber alert delayed (because the abductor was the father) for enough days that by the time the alert was issued, the child was already dead.  With her Dad (Samaan/Fay).  There has been a salon-breakin followed by triple-homicide (by the estranged ex; he was killed by a responding officer, who also gave his life to stop it in Northern California.  Another woman was shot in the face & killed in that incident; she was a domestic violence advocate, and behind her was crouched another woman terrorized in fear. That woman pulled a “Jesus Christ” and literally gave her life saving another, as did Officer Starczyk.   Children were in the apartment at this time.  Not to be outdone? in Southern California (Seal Beach), a different salon break-in resulted in as I recall, eight deaths:  of the mother of his children, two men, and the rest, people in the wrong place at the wrong time (all female).  Unfortunately, the man didn’t kill himself also, so unlike them, he gets a trial.  They got executions. . . Many times the mothers being killed are working women, or even successful entrepreneurs, and they were in the process of separating from their ex-husbands, or men.
In 1998, While Jenny  Bowen founded “HALF THE SKY” to rescue girls in China like the one they’d adopted, I, being a mother, was fighting for MY family’s lives and facing down guns and knives (after previous assaults, having economic sufficiency shut down, credit stolen, etc. and fighting to keep access to a bank account, transportation, and to receive uncensored access to mail) within marriage not far from “Half the Sky Foundation.”  My daughters,’ my, and potentially their fathers’ lives were saved by way of a nonprofit which had origins in the battered women’s movement, who helped me get a restraining civil order with kickout, when a criminal one was in order, but I didn’t know the difference at the time, having not pre-occupied myself (like many people don’t) with how the justice system works, and being unacquainted with illegal drugs, police brutality, gangs, etc.
No one informed us or other mothers at this time that the eventual price for surviving domestic violence and getting a temporary reprieve was later watching others trafficking our own kids into this system, and with that, us, too.  There seems to be no top dollar or expiration date on a Social Security Numbers in this business.
[one-para.-rant added 2014 while updating my table of contents/LGH:]  We are indeed HALF THE SKY in this country too, but if the whole truth were told, some of these philanthropies might not be so wealthy; we wouldn’t have a tax-system-instituted CASTE in the country, and our less-oppressed citizenry might have been less drugged-up, indoctrinated, pathologized (often for showing human spirit or independence), or so many of our nation’s women and children dealing with fragmentation, intergenerational transmission of VIOLENCE in their home, and because society won’t deal with it, forced to shut up about it if they want to continue functional, either that, or join the profession and keep the PROFESSIONAL COURTESY of SILENCE about the welfare diversions to create out-come based judicial proceedings, presided over by one or another member of a variety of religious fundamentalist, shamanistic, humanistic cultic groups who managed to get appointed as “experts” that judges can call upon and blame for bad custody decisions afterwards.
I was, however, acquainted with religious silence on wife-beating and family neglect and speaking about it, while working, while raising children, while living essentially like a fugitive, even at home.  As I began resisting, things escalated, and it was only the experience of  full two weeks FREE from abuse (the first since we married, that I can recall) which is to say away from home, with the children, and coming back to see the response (retaliation, increased control measures) that I determined to get away ASAP — and did so within a few months.
I have since then dialogued — and that’s more than an email or two, or a phone call or two — with women across the nation many ways like me — college degrees, work lives, service towards their local community, some of them veterans of the military — and they have been beaten, stripped of contact with their children, chewed up by the child support system, at least two of them to the point of complete (not near, but COMPLETE) homelessness through wage garnishment to pay men who did this to them.  And we know it’s through federal incentives programming to the states, and that THIS is America NOW.  When women give birth, they lose more than they give, including if they cannot stay in abusive relationships forever, contact with their children.  This is the NORM.   These children were many times not even wanted by the fathers, and are later dumped off with relatives or sold into the system, and some of us Moms have been tracking WHERE.

And then we turn on the TV after, perhaps, we hear of well-funded social media campaigns on saving the other half of the sky, sponsored by some of the same FOUNDATIONS that are screwing America, and perhaps just for fun.  Who knows?

Half the Sky Foundation during this time was what — uninformed about the VAWA movement in the United States, Uniformed about the backlash National Fatherhood Initiative in the HHS, uninformed about Congressional Testimony targeting single-mothers (esp. African American) as the cause of crime, poverty and substance abuse, and (fill in the blanks) across the nation, hence they should be matched up with the “BabyDaddies,” for better household management? Deaf Dumb and Blind?

WHAT ABOUT ETHICAL WOMEN IN HIGH POSITIONS?

LOOKS LIKE THEY GOT TARRED & FEATHERED, TOO:

Other American women of ethical behaviors in leadership positions are also targeted and drummed out of their own business if they don’t play dirty with the big boys — as was Catherine Austin Fitts, who exposed so much FHA fraud, narco-dollars, and developed a software directly empowering local communities to know where the money IN those communities came from.

Unfortunately, this software also showed who was stealing their assets, too.   This article is an explanation enough for starters:

Catherine Austin Fitts on Wall Street’s Corruption, the Austrian School and Who’s ‘Really’ in Charge

Sunday, January 01, 2012 – with Anthony Wile

Catherine Austin Fitts

The Daily Bell is pleased to publish an interview with financial advisor Catherine Austin Fitts (left).

Introduction: Catherine is the president of Solari, Inc., publisher of The Solari Report, and managing member of Solari Investment Advisory Services, LLC and Sea Lane Advisory, LLC. Catherine served as managing director and member of the board of directors of the Wall Street investment bank Dillon, Read & Co. Inc., as Assistant Secretary of Housing and Federal Housing Commissioner at the United States Department of Housing and Urban Development in the first Bush Administration, and was the president of Hamilton Securities Group, Inc. She graduated from the University of Pennsylvania (BA), the Wharton School (MBA) and studied Mandarin Chinese at the Chinese University of Hong Kong.

Thanks to America, women like this CAN get college educations and study business, wall street, even start up investment banks.  When they are showing loyalty to this country, and the people in this country, they should be listened to — not targeted for destruction for exposing the dismemberment of the American infrastructure.

I do not know whether Ms. Fitts has children (there’s not much mention), although it’s known at one point in time during the harassing litigation around Hamilton Securities, she had to hire a bodyguard — which reminds me of the two honest men in the “Phoebe Factoid” controversy (in Georgia) who also had to do this, as they exposed the profit in nonprofit hospitals.

But I do know that the “niche” formerly safe for women of, say, my generation to occupy — as working college professionals contributing to our piece of our neighborhoods, whether by working for arts nonprofits or in education (as I did), or any other number of ways — has been dismantled.   Ethical working mothers who vary from the norm in perhaps minuscule ways (i.e., they have backbone) are pulled out of the workforce to battle for their lives, or for their children in the court system, and to be paraded in front of psychologists along with their kids for “evaluation.”  Those in this system are of both genders, not just men, and in fact some of the most destructive federal nonprofits have women at their head, which is misleading, as if this makes them ethical or honorable.  Ethical and Honorable are as they do — not as their Chromosomes go…  and this particular person, more financially literate than I (I didn’t take a business major or learn Mandarin!  My parents did not include a federal court economist!) is speaking out against FINANCIAL corruption, which I personally value as worth more than its weight in psychological speculation!

I am putting this example in contrast with the equally educated (most likely) but differently aligned “HALF THE SKY” FOUNDERS and PROMOTERS….

Daily Bell: For those who don’t know, give us a rundown of your current business and economic preoccupations.

Catherine Austin Fitts: I publish the Solari Report (http://solari.com), a private bridge call and blog focused on building personal and family wealth. I also provide investment advisory services through Solari Investment Advisory Services LLC (http://solariadvisors.com) and Sea Lane Advisory LLC (http://sealaneadvisory.com)

Daily Bell: Give us a sense of your background and childhood.

Catherine Austin Fitts: I grew up in Philadelphia in the United States. As a child, I witnessed the destruction of wealth by networks engaged in organized crime and financial fraud and the covert operations that supported them. It started a life-long fascination with understanding how money and the financial system work, including in places, and how healthy cultures could prevail.

My mother was an economist who retired from the Philadelphia Federal Reserve to have children. My father was a surgeon and trauma expert who loved caring for people. I watched them struggle with the growing corruption as it ultimately tore our family apart.

I traveled around the world during college, studying Mandarin in Hong Kong, and then graduated from the University of Pennsylvania and received an MBA at Wharton. After graduation, I went to work at Dillon, Read & Co. Inc., a small Wall Street investment bank that is now a part of UBS. I chose Dillon Read as the firm offered me a chance to work in many different areas. I kept moving from one area and type of work to another, trying to understand different parts of the economy and financial system.

Dillon had a tradition of public service. After I became a managing director and member of the board, we sold the firm and after our initial employment contracts ended, numerous members of the firm joined the Bush Administration. I did as well, becoming Assistant Secretary of Housing – Federal Housing Commissioner in 1989. After serving in the Bush Administration for 18 months, and deeply disturbed by the mortgage fraud, I left and started an investment bank, Hamilton Securities Group. My hope was to use software technology and the Internet to help decentralize the capital raising process in a manner that could, in combination with government reengineering, revive the US economy and improve pension fund returns as globalization was shifting significant employment and income abroad.

Decentralizing the economy in a manner that grows decentralized equity ownership was not the direction taken by Washington and Wall Street. Instead, the strong dollar policy was instituted and a debt bubble, led by a global housing debt bubble, financed enormous shifts of capital globally in a manner that aggressively centralized political and economic control. I have described this process as a “financial coup d’état.” (See http://solari.com/blog/financial-coup-d’etat/).

To help facilitate the US housing bubble, the federal government targeted Hamilton. I spent eleven years engaged in litigation. This process forced me to research the US black budget, including related organized crime and financial fraud both domestically and globally.

I have described these events in detail in writings available online. (See the links at http://www.dunwalke.com/gideon/, including the link to my online book: Dillon, Read & Co. Inc. & the Aristocracy of Stock Profits,http://www.dunwalke.com/).

http://www.whereisthemoney.org/S00223_collateral.htm

This is, literally, the rape of America, detailed. . . .

Dunwalke was the name of Clarence Dillon’s estate in the hunt country of New Jersey. Dillon built Dunwalke during his years on Wall Street as the head of Dillon, Read & Co. Inc. When Dillon died in 1979, the Dunwalke mansion and 125 of the original 1,200 acres were bequeathed to Princeton University. In the summer of 2001, Princeton sold Dunwalke for $18 million to the co-President of Goldman Sachs.

Goldman Sachs plays a part in the Half the Sky Authors, below;

Previously, Ms. WuDunn has been vice president, in the role of investment advisor for private clients, in the investment management division at Goldman, Sachs & Co. and a commercial loan officer at Bankers Trust.”

The first was a vision shared by my old firm on Wall Street — Dillon Read — and the Clinton Administration with the full support of a bipartisan Congress. In this vision, America’s aristocracy makes money and finances the building of a global empire one neighborhood at a time by ensnaring our youth in a pincer movement of drugs and prisons. Middle class support for these policies is created through a steady and growing stream of government funding and contracts for War on Drugs activities at federal, state and local levels. This consensus is made all the more powerful by the gush of growing debt and derivatives used to bubble the housing and mortgage markets, manipulate the stock and precious metals markets and finance trillions missing from the US government in the largest pump and dump in history — the pump and dump of the entire American economy. This is more than a process designed to wipe out the middle class. This is genocide — a much more subtle and lethal version than ever before perpetrated by the scoundrels of our history texts.

This case study provides a detailed example of the financial kickback machinery that makes the process go. It works something like this. A group of executives and investors start a company. Rather than build a business the old fashioned way, company profits are pumped up with government legislation, contracts, regulation, financing, subsidies and/or enforcement. This dramatically increases the value of the company’s financial equity. The company and its initial investors then sell their stock at a profit. Such profits replenish contributions made to the kind of politicians who can arrange such government benefits. Such profits also fund philanthropy to foundations and universities that have large endowments that invest along side the investors. These tax-exempt organizations provide graduates to staff positions in the game, intellectual justification to attract popular support and photo opportunities which bestow legitimacy and social stature. Personnel cycle through the management and boards of business, government and academia, as the real economy declines — the environment deteriorates, productivity falls, income and infrastructure decline — and government deficits grow.



I still try to help women here become alert to this issue and spend phone time in “get a grip” conversations, after having deduced that the agencies we turn to for help are already bought out.
And then we hear that famous people have suddenly recognized that child trafficking happens — somewhere else…And apparently the limit of the US involvement is not production of children (i.e., stealing them from both parents, or from a mother in particular), but apparently the “johns.”
I decided to look up “Half the Sky” — and see how very well coordinated and funded a media campaign it is.  Reminds me of other well-produced and funded media campaigns which dodge the central US truths, such as the PSU “Telling Amy’s Story,” put out years ago.  that story ended up with a dead mother who made a stupid mistake that no one called attention to in the narrative:  the mother seriously confronted the father and then WENT BACK HOME FOR SOME FRESH DIAPERS.  The father laid in wait, killed the mother, and calmly walked past the waiting grandparents and surviving child in the car.  They could’ve easily been killed too, and only weren’t because they were LUCKY.
Yes, of course this is upsetting.  No, I don’t take for granted that I can drive a car, or sit in pubic without a man near me.  But I tell you what — I spend almost no time sitting in my own home, because of the prior man, and make sure I’m most of the day in a public place for the exact same reason I requested a restraining order to start with — for safety.
We cannot, as a country, go on like this, entranced by the rich and famous and well-publicized.  They are not your friends because they’ve mastered the art of networking and getting funding for social media, major media, and world travel!!!
HERE’S A LIST OF THE FOUNDATIONS BEHIND THIS PUBLICITY:
It is organized in segments.  This segment is from:
http://www.halftheskymovement.org/pages/funders
These are 24 foundations that have decided to “off-shore” their expenses — including
  • FORD
  • MACARTHUR
  • ROCKEFELLER
ALL OF THESE HAVE BEEN INVOLVED IN ANTI-FEMINIST ACTIVITIES IN THE UNITED STATES, AND IN SETTING UP “MODEL” JUSTICE SYSTEMS (MacArthur) TO REVISE THE OLD, REPRESENTATIVE-ELECTED-OFFICIAL SYSTEMS IN PLACE.  FORD IS PARTICULARLY OBJECTIONABLE IN SPONSORING ALL KINDS OF COLLECTIVIST RHETORIC AROUND THE ISSUE OF FATHERHOOD, AND WAS A PARTNER WITH THE MDRC ORGANIZATION IN 1974.
Underneath this list of funders, I’m going to post (paste) most of the bios of the famous husband/wife author duo of this Half the Sky Movement, who happen to be (him) Rhodes Scholars, and between them Pulitzer Prize winning authors; not to mention Harvard, Yale, Princeton, and significant experience (Ms. WuDunn) with the banking and investment industries as well.  Better explained by reading them.
I remind readers of my links on the other blog (The Family Court Franchise System) talking about the role of the Rhodes Scholarship on the Road to Welfare State; there is a history (Cecil Rhodes, South Africa, the determination to win the colonies back for Britain, etc.).  Don’t think this history is still not in operation, or the policies set long ago….

REMARKABLE LIVES, REMARKABLE ACHIEVEMENTS.  I AM, HOWEVER, SADDENED, AS I READ THIS, AT THE WASTED TALENT IN THE CONTIGUOUS (PLUS ALASKA/HAWAII/US TERRITORIES) OF MOTHERS OF CHILDREN TRAFFICKED (SOMETIMES DRUGGED) INTO THE FOSTER CARE, ADOPTION SYSTEMS, NOT TO MENTION ALSO THOSE UNDER-EDUCATED THROUGH THE AMERICAN PUBLIC SCHOOL SYSTEM, WHERE THEY CAN ALSO LEARN ABOUT GANGS AND HOW TO RAPE OR GET RAPED, OR MOLESTED BY THEIR TEACHERS (STILL HAPPENING), OR ABOUT THINGS LIKE WEAPONS SEARCH AND AREA “LOCKDOWNS.”  . . . .
AND ALSO MOTHERS LIKE ME, MANY OF WHOM I HAVE FREQUENT CONTACT WITH, WHO ARE STRUGGLING TO PUT “JUSTICE” BACK IN THE JUSTICE SYSTEM FOR THE SAKE OF OUR DAUGHTERS.  AND SONS.   AS PART OF THIS EFFORT, MOST OF US ARE ALSO SMART ENOUGH TO TRY TO TAKE RELIGION OUT OF GOVERNMENT, WHICH WILL REQUIRE A RADICAL CHANGE OF APPROACH AND WILL AFFECT THOSE WHO HAVE FALSELY ALLOWED THIS TO HAPPEN.
BUT HERE ARE THE DETAILS.  I NOTE MS. WuDunn WAS ALSO INVOLVED WITH GOLDMAN SACHS….

Nicholas D. Kristof

Nicholas D. Kristof, a columnist for The New York Times since November 2001, is a two-time Pulitzer Prize winner who writes op-ed columns that appear twice a week.

Mr. Kristof grew up on a sheep and cherry farm near Yamhill, Oregon. He graduated from Harvard College, Phi Beta Kappa, and then won a Rhodes Scholarship to Oxford, where he studied law and graduated with first class honors. He later studied Arabic in Cairo and Chinese in Taipei. After working in France, he caught the travel bug and began backpacking around Africa and Asia, writing articles to cover his expenses. Mr. Kristof has lived on four continents, reported on six, and traveled to more than 150 countries, plus all 50 states, every Chinese province and every main Japanese island. He’s also one of the very few Americans to be at least a two-time visitor to every member of the “Axis of Evil.” During his travels, he has had unpleasant experiences with malaria, mobs and an African airplane crash.

After joining The New York Times in 1984, initially covering economics, he served as a correspondent in Los Angeles and as bureau chief in Hong Kong, Beijing, and Tokyo. In 2000, he covered the presidential campaign, and he is the author of the chapter on George W. Bush in the reference book The Presidents. He later was Associate Managing Editor of the Times, responsible for Sunday editions.

In 1990 Mr. Kristof and his wife, Sheryl WuDunn, until recently also a Times journalist, won a Pulitzer Prize for their coverage of China’s Tiananmen Square movement. They were the first married couple to win a Pulitzer for journalism. Mr. Kristof won a second Pulitzer in 2006, for what the judges called “his graphic, deeply reported columns that, at personal risk, focused attention on genocide in Darfur.” Mr. Kristof has also won other prizes including the George Polk award, the Overseas Press Club award, the Michael Kelly award, the Online News Association award, and the American Society of Newspaper Editors award. Mr. Kristof has taken a special interest in Web journalism and was the first blogger on The New York Times Web site; he has a Facebook fan page and a channel on YouTube, as well as more than 1 million followers on Twitter.

In his column, Mr. Kristof was an early opponent of the Iraq war, was among the first to warn that we were losing ground in Afghanistan, and has regularly focused attention on global poverty, health and gender issues, as well as climate change. Since 2004, he has written dozens of columns about Darfur and has visited the region around Darfur eleven times.

He is an international globetrotter and talented, accomplished and brave journalist.

He has NOT been at home on the US looking at or hearing about what happens to women and children in our justice system or how our government is slush-funding money into specialized HHS programs which ENDANGER women and children by helping fetch criminal fathers out of jail, and reunification efforts.  It’s probable he’s also not reporting on many things that people who didn’t get to Harvard or Yale have to live with, including the buildup of the world’s largest per-capita jailor and who invests in the privatization of its prisons, where its young people get raped and assaulted, and otherwise traumatized (Corrections Corporation of America); possibly not on the missing HUD’s $60 billion or the withheld $14 million (Silva v. Garcetti) child support held by Los Angeles County, or HOW many trillion? lost by the Pentagon; or the major expansion of the drugging of American and setting up the family court system as a behavioral health Archipelago of therapeutic jurisprudence, or of the transformation of representative government into collective government determined nationwide in nonprofit associations of public employees.  And, you name it …

Given that he’s a Rhodes Scholar, that’s not generally speaking, the subject matter.

Mr. Kristof and Ms. WuDunn are authors of three best-selling books:  China Wakes: The Struggle for the Soul of a Rising Power in 1994Thunder from the East: Portrait of a Rising Asia in 2000; and Half the Sky: Turning Oppression into Opportunity for Women Worldwide in 2009. Mr. Kristof is also the subject of an HBO documentary executive-produced by Ben Affleck, “Reporter,” and serves on the boards of Harvard University and the American Association of Rhodes Scholars. He has received a number of honorary doctorates and other honors. Mr. Kristof and Ms. WuDunn are the parents of three children. Mr. Kristof enjoys running, backpacking, and having his Chinese and Japanese corrected by his children.

Vsit his blog On the Ground, join him on Facebook and Google+, watch his YouTube videos and follow him onTwitter and Pinterest.

Sheryl WuDunn

Sheryl WuDunn, the first Asian-American reporter to win a Pulitzer Prize, is a business executive, lecturer, and best-selling author. Currently, she is a senior managing director with Mid-Market Securities, an investment banking boutique helping growth companies, including those operating in the emerging markets. At MMS, she raises capital for a variety of clients: men and women entrepreneurs in new media, media technology and social enterprise. She was also a Senior Lecturer at Yale University’s Jackson Institute for Global Affairs in fall 2011.

Previously, Ms. WuDunn has been vice president, in the role of investment advisor for private clients, in the investment management division at Goldman, Sachs & Co. and a commercial loan officer at Bankers Trust. She also worked at The New York Times as both an executive and journalist: in management roles in both the Strategic Planning and Circulation Sales departments at The Times; as editor for international markets, energy and industry; as The Times’s first anchor of an evening news headlines program for a digital cable TV channel, the Discovery-Times; and as a foreign correspondent for The Times in Tokyo and Beijing, where she wrote about economic, financial, political and social issues.

She is co-author of Half the Sky: Turning Oppression into Opportunity for Women Worldwide, a New York Times best-selling book about the challenges facing women around the globe, published in 2009 by Knopf and featured on The Oprah Winfrey Show, The Colbert Report and other network television shows. Ms. WuDunn also helped launch the development of the Half the Sky multimedia effort – creating a thoughtful, effective philanthropic strategy that includes an online social game and a documentary series.

. . . . More honors and authorities:

 Ms. WuDunn has also won a White House Project EPIC award, and she has been a judge for the State Department “Secretary’s Innovation Award for Women’s and Girls’ Empowerment.” She has won other awards, including the Asia Women in Business Corporate Leadership Award, the Pearl S. Buck Woman of the Year Award, the Harriet Beecher Stowe Prize, among numerous other awards. In 2011, Newsweek cited Ms. WuDunn as one of the “150 Women Who Shake the World.”

She graduated from Cornell University, where she is a member of the Board of Trustees, a member of the Board’s Finance Committee, a former co-chair of the Board’s Academic Affairs Committee and former member of the $4 billion endowment’s Investment Committee. She earned an M.B.A. from Harvard Business School and an M.P.A. from Princeton University’s Woodrow Wilson School, where she was a member of its Advisory Council. Ms. WuDunn received an honorary doctorate from the University of Pennsylvania and Middlebury College. Ms. WuDunn lectures around the United States and abroad on economic, political and social topics related to women in the developing world, the global economy, China and the emerging markets

Well, I would’ve loved to give one of my daughters such an opportunity, but the same United States that gave Ms WuDunn an Innovation for Women’s and Girls’ Empowerment doesn’t acknowledge the word “mother” in association with “father” in its own rhetoric and feels no contradiction in continuing to disenfranchise educated mothers who otherwise would have transmitted that education down at least ONE generation, and make sure our mid-lives are wasted fighting for basic human rights — and not getting them.  SO, while Ayaan Hirsi Ali fled the Netherlands under death threats (and after a filmmaker of one of her pieces was murdered), Holly Collins fled the United states to protect herself and her children.  Jessica Gonzales (now Lenahan) of Colorado was forced to sit by while her ex-hustand MURDERED three of her children because they were not required to, and no intention of, arresting or prosecuting a father for violation of a domestic violence restraining order.  THREE DEAD CHILDREN IN THE BACK OF  A PICKUP, and these American raised women are having to appeal to an international court for help.
While women who received the best of the best of Ivy league Education are in other countries helping the US pursue (along with philanthropists like Jenny Bowen and others) more investments in emerging markets and get those children adopted.
It’s clear as a bell — money has been poured into the other side of the globe; so what’s the plan for America, huh?   Sharia law in the family law system?
Who is causing some of the trouble on the other side of the globe if not some of the same global elite, including from London and Washington D.C., Chicago, Los Angeles & New York, etc?   Why not fix the problem at its source?  Economic war through greed on the rest of the world.  As Ms. Fitts says — where the West is invested, it is going to enforce, and has the technology to do so as well….

HALF the SKY FOUNDATION, for one, is networked with and part of a huge, international adoption ring.  Here’s the list!

That’s a lot of Adoption Organizations from?  Who’s making all the poverty and violence that gives rise to the need for these adoptions?
