This post presents three different ways to view three different time spans’s tables of contents.  I had previously posted for two of those time spans, but never in page-sized (8X11) format for viewing or printing.  This post pulls it all together and put the links in one place to older tables of contents direct from here (in 8X11) or directly on their original posts (links to those posts).

POST TITLE: 2017 Table of Contents Continues Themes From 2016. See TOC for: (1) 2017 now thru Sept. 21; (2) 2016 All; and (3) Sept. 2012 – June 2014, Reverse Chrono, and (4) See Also More Info Below. [Published Jan. 9 2017, last updated July 1, 2019]. (case-sensitive, WordPress-generated shortlink-ends 5qZ, first published Jan. 9, 2017, second half of post title and substantial updates added in late September, 2017).  About 9,000 words.

Terrible title.  But, here you have:

Tables of Contents for:

  • 2017 (most) 
  • 2016 (all)
  • 2015 none (I published not one post that year for personal reasons).
  • 2012-2014 (some),** and
  • significant “Value-Added” content, the  (4) See Also More Info Below referenced in the title.***

**I got as far back as about Sept. 21, 2012, and after June 29, 2014, I stopped blogging, again, for personal reasons, basic limitations on one person’s waking hours.

For posts before about Sept 21 or 24, 2012 (i.e., March 2009 – 2010-2011 & almost ¾ of 2012), you must use Archives function by month or search individually if you’re aware of a post title or keywords…Earlier posts are in rougher format (I am a self-taught blogger and there is a technical, not just subject matter, learning curve!) but I believe the basic principles repoprted that far back still apply.


**Now that its mid-2019, I’m still blogging, and have even integrated links to another blog’s contents, starting with an index to their before-and-after (as I publish them gradually on this one), I am removing from here most of that “more info below” content to separate pdfs or (newly published) posts, leaving some links and some footprint text instead. The extra info just takes up too much vertical web page real estate, so I evicted it.

On review, I see that most of the (4) More Info Below is my drill-down and write-up of an important organization called “CENIC” for which I’m sure every United States state (and probably the territories) has a corresponding arrangement.  They have to, because it deals with provision of high-speed internet access for governments and universities.   My writeup represents a lot of time and effort but it’s got to go.  I’ll describe it briefly, move to a new post, leaving a footprint here (a link or two and one image) as footnote on where I was as a blogger at the time.  Good information, good demonstration of a drill-down and why to do them, but it still should’ve begun as its own post. Its presence complicated the already complicated layout here.

There’s also some more info on top, though.  Let me summarize:

[Some Must-know Cold, Hard, Facts about Comprehensive Annual Financial Reports aka CAFRs.]

Because this was the leading edge of my whole blog, in one subsequent update I included a reference to another of my blogs economicbrain.wordpress.com, blog name “Cold,Hard.Fact$.featuring a large image of the tall buildings towering over a city landscape (and a long caption go with it) right below the “Read-More” link.

They are government buildings in downtown Oakland, California; that blog features government accounts as a window into its purposes. It shows where I began working through the government comprehensive annual financial statements (CAFRs) which I began featuring also here in 2012, as soon as I saw and from seeing, understood their significance.

This significance is now integrated into the substance of FamilyCourtMatters.  If and when we are doing “drill-downs” on any entity, understanding that “substrata” is close to solid ground.  It’s a bottom line, foundation-level indicator of what is being built on top throughout all government and commercial activities. I look at the US, but other countries also produce financials:  their purpose is to better facilitate international trade and measurements. Basically, without seeing these, no one can in effect understand government(s) or interpret statements from governments on their current condition.

The parallel for corporate or business activities (including all advocacy groups registered as nonprofit or other businesses) would be audited financial statements for any entity — or sometimes these are presented as “consolidated.” Both the audited financial statements AND tax returns matter and are needed (but, financial statements are only required to be made available to the public, as I understand it, for nonprofits — and with plenty of exclusions, such as some types of religious institutions.  They MUST be made available to the public for government entities).

Up until that point I was tracking mostly federal U.S. Dept of HHS grants which affect family court and domestic violence, welfare reform issues and as I recall (of the years 2009-2012!) a lot of tax returns, as well as reporting on the issues themselves.

Pls. click here ~>my 2012 blog “Cold,Hard.Fact$“ and why I still refer to it on FamilyCourtMatters (for post 2017 TOC, -5qZ)..2019July01 Mon ~>for a short statement  which I just added/uploaded as pdf. This is not a link to the blog, but a statement about it. Thanks.

Moving on …

This three different (by time span) tables of contents in printable or just conveniently viewable 8X11 format are great for an overview of my work up through those dates. If you want to just view them directly on a blog, this post also provides links to do that also.**

Because the format is new, I’ve also posted images of how those 8X11 formats will look.

This post as sort of a “parent” contains both content for 2017** and links to content for the other years, as the full post title laboriously summarizes. I kept just this one “sticky” making it a visible access to the others. It’s basically a front-door way to scan dozens, if not hundreds, of post titles for an overview of what I’ve been writing about. **(For 2017 no more clicks needed, just scroll down) 

For example, here’s the five-page pdf version of  TOC 2017 in 8.5X11 format (through Sept. 21, 2017, Row 53, which includes the last three posts from 2016) (<~~ this phrase & link repeated lower down also, as well as links for prior years and “bonus material.” as described above.  Bulleted info. to this paragraph just some technical pointers on links within pdfs, uploading pdfs requires two clicks)…

  • Clicking on any single post title from the pdf’s Table of Contents should load that post directly. In other words, pdf contents that look like links usually are active/click-able links. In constructing the tables of contents for printing to pdf (for this blog), I (painstakingly!) made sure each post title had its underlying short-link so you can browse & click through to any post from that five-page TOC 2017 in 8.5X11 pdf format).  Unlike pdfs, plain “images” (often “png” files) — my blog is full of them — may show links or web addresses, but they are not active because they’re just images: like a snapshot of a person.  You may see their hand, but you can’t shake the hand of a person on a photograph. Png images do NOT have embedded active/clickable links. In those cases, the caption will usually tell how to access the original doc’t. PDF images can and do.  Because of that I often provide links in the caption, or a sometimes a nearby pdf.
  • On this WordPress blog for any pdf  only a second click on the blank page icon below blog & post titles) will call up its contents


Looking at this post again from mid-year, 2019, I know there’s far too much complicated table talk explaining navigation around these new-to-me presentations of a manually-produced TOC of my own blog.  If this doesn’t apply to you, just get to the post titles and click on them. Unless displayed here as an image, they should all work. If any link produces an error message, I’d be glad to know (i.e., comment), but meanwhile you can still find it by the date using archive, or probably even a Google search with a phrase from the title and my blog name: “FamilyCourtMatters.org”  (“FamilyCourtMatters.wordpress.com” redirects to “….*.org)


For posts before about Sept 21 or 24, 2012 (i.e., March 2009 – 2010-2011 & almost ¾ of 2012), you must use Archives function by month or search individually if you’re aware of a post title or keywords…Earlier posts are in rougher format (I am a self-taught blogger and there is a technical, not just subject matter, learning curve!) but I believe the basic principles repoprted that far back still apply.


I discovered the radical significance of “CAFRs” about March 2012 and began reporting on them here about then, and on a separate, but not regularly added to, WordPress blog, Cold,Hard.Fact$ – “Experts are Nice but Economic Comprehension Better. Find and Start Reading Gov’t Entity CAFRs.”

Click to enlarge image or click this link: economicbrain.wordpress.com, blog name “Cold,Hard.Fact$,” started 2012. Page titles across the top, sample CAFRs by states (and a few cities) also shown as posts, along with other more narrative posts, on its sidebar. This blog is only added to sporadically since about 2013; I’d attempted to extract the “economic” considerations from “family court” issues. In fact, they are intertwined and inseparable, with economic drivers I believe primary and “cause-based rhetoric” secondary  — policy-promoting terms (“domestic violence prevention” “child protection” “fatherhood engagement” “community solutions” “closing the gap” etc.) just  keep driving the underlying “public/private partnership” economy and justifying more “social science R&D” (Population Control Tactics) upon the poor, who are coached to believe this is in their best interests.  Citizens ought to understand, conceptually frame in its operating entities, their own governments (plural!) and at least be able to locate them (as multiplying, or unifying, crossing jurisdictional boundaries, etc.) and their financials, which [we/citizens & residents ESPECIALLY in the USA, which taxes overseas-generated income from US individuals and corporate “persons” also] are taxed to support. It’s mostly a matter of terminology and exposure to the reporting forms — NOT “rocket science”…[This image + caption only added on Oct. 21, 2018 to earlier FamilyCourtMatters.org TOC 2017 post (shortlink ending “-5qZ”)]

Some subject matter overlaps (for example, it deals also with historic roots of USA’s 1990s welfare reform in (Apartheid) South Africa and what is now Namibia.  It also references historic major tax-exempt foundations, connections of globalist corporations’ social policy, which naturally deals with issues under FamilyCourtMatters such as “low-income families” and gender roles; look for post “From Oxford to Harvard to DC {feeding, fueling — and vaccinating — the world}” and more. Never underestimate the power & reach of pharmaceutical companies and interests (expressed in well-funded professional nonprofit associations) upon governments (near and far).  See nearby image of w|two-tall-towers in a city skyline.

CENIC website CalREN coverage + Backbone maps SShots, Overview (Calif) courtesy “Intermapper” (Image 3 of #3) here.

RE: (4) See Also More Info Below: MOST (not all) was on CENIC.

ALL the “CENIC!!” WRITEUPS ON THIS POST MOVED OF JULY 1, 2019 TO NEW POST. WHAT REMAINS IS THIS FOOTPRINT. TO SHOW WHY I LOOKED IT UP, AND WHY YOU MIGHT WANT TO READ ABOUT IT.

On the $89M Assets (FY2014) nonprofit (or see Tax Return for FY2015) called “CENIC” (Corporation for Education Network Initiatives in California) I talk about it here as a bit of “show and tell” for some processes I use repeatedly in the blog, whether on family-court-connected corporations, federal grants, or lookups of tax returns.

(UPDATE:  Now well over $100M.)


Doing curiosity-driven entity drill-downs almost always deepens one’s understanding on vital parts of an infrastructure often taken for granted.  Here, I’d had no prior awareness or name-recognition of “CENIC until I noticed it under “Recent visitors” to my blog, statistics some embedded software tracks Not to worry:  only business or gov’t entities’ browsers display names.

Who’s not aware that universities and government entities and some major institutions have access to higher-speed and more networked internet that then average person?  But how many know how is this organized, financed, and operated (including revenues and expenses recorded) in their own state? It’s a major part of a different kind of power grid…so why not look into it?  That’s how drill-downs can help, and it’s a process I demonstrate and promote constantly on this blog, although my usual focus for such drill-downs are much more closely related to the subject matter. //LGH 2019July1 comments

Please take a look! TAX returns are for the IRS.  CHARITABLE REGISTRATIONS with the State, especially in California (Verification page here), can reveal much more including some character traits of any filing organizations, growth patterns, reporting patterns, gov’t. backers etc.


(The printout also shows my annotations, i.e., ways to pay attention to such details, on a common resource I accessed throughout the blog.  You’ll see more of these if you keep reading)…

~|~|~ END of “CENIC” FOOTPRINT.  MATERIAL MOVED TO BE re-PUBLISHED AT: ~|~|~

The largest “CENIC” section was removed from the bottom of all Tables of Contents or links to them on this post.  Some material (tags from the 2017 titles/”Largest Foundations”) remains. I hope this will increase public awareness of both posts and what they are showing.

As you can see next up, I also removed a shorter but still multi-paragraph blog summary to its own post also, where I’ll be moving other excess “About this Blog” clutter (essentially) as I run across it in the normal course of being an investigative blogger and continuing build this and promote this particular blog:

UPDATE: BLOG PREVIEW (“About this Blog”) PARAGRAPHS REMOVED. I’m compiling older blog previews at FamilyCourtMatters.org Blog Previews, In Hindsight. Short(ish) Summaries (Collected July 1, 2019ff)(Shortlink ends “-adQ,”).  It may be a while before I publish; I’m sure readers can survive meanwhile. The compilation shortens older posts and gives me and when published others a sort of time capsule.   I often write (here, or on social media), “as I’ve been saying for years.”

Anyone can deduce that, but it’d be to have at least one main post to point to supporting that claim.

This was the first removal initiating that new post.  I’ll add (actually delete/reallocate) more as I run across the need for it as a blogger (when citing previous posts) or blog administrator (administrative housekeeping)..It’s not a spring cleaning, top-to-bottom of the blog situation…


Finally…

 “THE TOC LINKS, IMAGES + TOC 2017”

The Direct-access Table for 2017 (with the last three of 2016 for continuity of a certain theme) is near the bottom of this page. It is current through October 8, 2017. You will see the header to 2016 with 3 rows, the header for 2017 and 54 rows followed by some more blanks.  That’s one of several ways to access posts for 2017.

In any format, it looks about like this (notice the last entry pictured represents the post you’re looking at, “Row 3” for 2017), only with a MUCH longer title now.

Click to enlarge. Excerpt from Jan. 9, 2017 post explaining TOC navigation. If you don’t want to mess with uploaded pdfs or anything complex, find this part of the post and browse at least last three posts of 2016 and all of 2017’s posts. Other years (and links to them) are also discussed below.

Meanwhile, the “10 most recent posts” section on right sidebar is helpful for 2017, or if you’re handy with scroll or page-down functions (but not recommended on cell phone) go to the top of this blog (just: “FamilyCourtMatters.org“), scroll down below this lone “sticky” post with its abbreviated lead-in  (i.e., text preceding the “Read More….” link), realizing that lower down = earlier posts.

As the title indicates, the Tables (plural) of Contents (“TOC”) are in three sections:  <> 2017 through March, <> 2016 (all of it), and <>Sept., 2012 – June, 2014.  Post title also signals that besides the tables of contents, this post has <> more info below.  

The next three links pull up those three TOC for better browsing in a form whereby any post displayed on that table can be reached by clicking on its name after clicking on the link to bring up the pdf.  The next inset box is just in case a little vocabulary might further help navigate what follows.

If you’re already computer fluent, my explanations below may be just plain annoying.  Maybe skip this section!


(Click Image as needed to Enlarge) “Key words in keeping it straight might be: “post” (you’re reading one), “table” (a dynamic format within a post showing the table of contents, with active links), “pdf” (stands for “Portable Document Format”) and “images,” or “screenprints” which here, includes images of the “pdfs” of my list of all the posts.” [The image here is to reduce on-post verbiage that doesn’t apply to all readers…I wrote it, screen-printed it, uploaded it to the blog, down-loaded it to this post, and for all that, got to shorten a few vertical inches of my own prose  🙂 .. .//LGH]Key words in keeping it straight might be:  “post” (you’re reading one), “table” (a dynamic format within a post showing the table of contents, with active links), “pdf” (stands for “Portable Document Format”) and “images,” or “screenprints” which here, includes images of the “pdfs” of my list of all the posts.  (….this text continued on the next image.  Click image to read more verbal descriptions of what you can click on, all over the internet (and below)… (!)… Text for this section then concludes to right of the image with “The word “table” is thus used here in three different senses.”)

The word “table” is thus used here in three different senses:  Table of Contents (generic), “table format” within the post, which is a kind of software term and as I constructed it, includes active links on post titles; and “table” within the word processing document (to which I also manually added those active links to post titles (!).

PDF #1Table of Contents Last Three of 2016 through September 21, 2017,5pp <==Click title to view 5-pg doc’t. then click on any post title to go to that post (pdf format, showing in 8X11 page installments).***

PDF #2:Table of Contents, 2016, all (several pages, 52 posts), Click on any post title to access that post. (pdf format, showing in 8X11 page installments).

[No posts were published in this time gap, from June 29, 2014 – January 22, 2016.]

PDF #3:Table of Contents, June 29, 2014 reverse chrono to Sept. 24, 2012 (37 pages, about 140 posts), same viewing instructions (pdf format, showing in 8X11 page installments).  This being so much longer, has different sections. . . The table of contents (therein) is on pp. 4-20. FYI. The front and end matter contain narrative (blog) substance, not just “navigation” instructions.  I’ll show in more detail below.

So, I just gave labeled links to three pdfs representing the three different TOCs in their paginated formats.  They may be also viewed directly from pre-existing POSTS containing tables — and more juicy information on the posts beside the tables of contents.

Links to these three posts with their full titles are here, but will also appear below with more explanations.  Notice that while I’m posting three different tables for the same time spans, respectively, filenames for pdfs vs. posts differ. So does extra material — Each platform (post vs. pdf) in addition to the names of each post and links to it will have different written substance. This supplementary material (whether on pdf or on post) may be either an index of the tags, or other narratives on specific major topics.  It’s there because it’s important.

So, the actual Table contents (numbers, names of posts and dates) from pdf to post should match 1:1 but the “extras” will not, and both are in my opinion worth reading.

So here are the links to those posts asscoiated with the the three pdfs just identified above):

2017, ALL (with overlap of the last three posts of 2016)

(You’re already on that post, “POST #1” in this list).

New post published Oct. 3 and entered into the table on this post below, but not onto the underlying  “pdf” versions of 2017; this would not be an effective use of my time, especially as recent posts also display in the sidebars.

2016, ALL:

POST #2:  Link to TOC 2016 & that post’s revised title:  {1}Table of Contents 2016 (52 posts Jan. 23 – Dec. 13, 2016) with {2}Intro on First 5 Years Fund(ing), incl. but not limited to Tobacco Lawsuit Settlement Payouts + Warren Buffett’s “Ounce of Prevention Fund”(IL) and {3} Appendix of Tags from some Critical-to-Understand Posts  I closed out 2016 with an average of one post a week (52 posts total). 

The appendix of tags may be especially helpful, and contain additional commentary.

{{ 2015 = N/A.  I didn’t publish any posts in 2015, or the last half of 2014. }}

2014-2012 Reverse Chrono Order, ALL:

POST #3: For 6/2014 and earlier, back to 9/2012 ==>: My Posts, Just the List (June 29, 2014..back to Sept. 24, 2012. From Jan. 23, 2016 forward now available @ “Table of Contents 2016 ONLY” Post)

These links are repeated below also, with their related pdfs and images…i.e., more explanation. You now have all the posts and all the pdfs for the three Tables of contents.  Below, besides the actual table for 2017 (with last three of 2016 as I indicated) is still more helpful information, including IMAGES (preview of the pdf material) and some other points of reference.

There will be some repetition (explanation of the, new-to-me at the time, process of linking pds and their images to posts on this blog).

For any post dated before Sept. 24, 2012  — use this blog’s Archives function (top right) and pick a month from the drop-down menu; once it’s showing, click on any date that shows a hyperlink (underlined).   Unfortunately that doesn’t provide a preview of post titles.  Or, if you have keywords, or a post title, simply do a basic web search — it may come up still! I still sometimes will be looking for more information on a specific grant, or grantee, or topic, and find my own posts come up in the search results.


Here’s a link to the five-page pdf of TOC 2017 in 8.5X11 pdf form (current through Sept. 21, 2017, Row 53).  It includes the last three posts from 2016 too.

Updated (9/29/2017) images for all five (5) pages follow. I’ll also add the pdf to each image as a “custom link”  so if you click the image, you get the whole thing.  (It’s only 5 pages, after all!).  You may notice I circled a few posts and highlit a few rows differently to show just either posts that introduced a new page (maroon, rows are back-lit mustard yellow), or were which I added during this process to the seven “sticky” posts at the top of the page (bright blue oval, rows are backlit a sort of gradient steel-blue to white). So now there were nine (9) total sticky posts at the top of the blog.

I don’t like cluttering up the top of the blog, so if they’re in that position, they’re important!

Again:  post links are not clickable on “images” but (in this case) if you click on my images to get to the underlying 5-page pdf (for 2017 so far), those post titles ARE clickable/active links.

The Table 2017 on this post has it correct, but the uploaded pdfs (in all cases/custom links added to FY2017 images on this post) do not — there’d been a typo in the part of url which should’ve read “psBXH,” not “psBHX.” It can also easily be accessed by date, and at any rate is only the third post from the top on the blog, since I added two more “Sticky” ones, which now occupy positions #1 and 2 at top of the blot.….

  • EXCERPT pp2-8 ONLY (12-10-2016 DRAFT4Feedbk! Dec 6, 2015,VEnglund – Public Still Clueless After All These Years? (BISC-MI+DV Cartel+PRWORA, 1995-2015 | Notice the Narratives but EXAMINE <==pdf from this page.  paragraphs below express my frustration.  This blog also has a section and points to previous posts on the “Family Justice Center” (now “Alliance for Hope International”) situation, in general — or, I should say, specifically (see above link):
  • This “Public Still Clueless After All These Years?”  also illustrates how tax returns often tell a very different story than press releases, or even complaints about any organization in journal form.  The financial information is simply of a different type and nature — but it STILL shows organization ethics and character.  Based on that evidence, I say my up-front summaries are accurate, as is that the public is in 2017 as in 2015, “Still Clueless After All These Years” (at least about this particular public/private partnership’s basic model and based on that model, purposes).  You can see why such shady “slosh-money-through” behavior would need a REALLY benevolent purpose, cause and association to distract from the financial realities throughout.  Probably it’s distracted many of the volunteers and some employees too, but at SOME point in time, that “stuff” will become public.  Then what?  Well, “we’ve already invested too much in the program and built up the infrastructure in city after city, what about all our employees and the clients we’re servicing?” |||  My point exactly — part of the business plan is to accelerate expansion BEFORE the public gets a serious clue what’s coming down the road at them, and at their expense, ongoing….Hardly the “democratic” and (much less the republican) form of government…Similar deal with the Bain/Bridgespan model — and Harvard University (or at least Harvard Business School // Review) agrees.  As to Public/Private Partnerships and Accelerating Social Change in the name of public welfare — the Corporation for National Service/Social Innovation Fund (I posted on it recently, and earlier in 2016) agrees too.  I guess there’s just nothing to be said about distributing representative government throughout unaccountable nonprofit networks which hook up with government agencies or entities, and then take it global.

For 2016 ONLY with valuable material before/after:

It (also) is now accessible in two formats — on-line, or a printed pdf (paginated to fit 8.5X11 format), as explained below (pdf completed added post-publication here).

I closed out 2016 with an average of one post a week (52 posts total). 

Link to TOC 2016 & that post’s revised title:  {1}Table of Contents 2016 (52 posts Jan. 23 – Dec. 13, 2016) with {2} Intro on First 5 Years Fund(ing), incl. but not limited to Tobacco Lawsuit Settlement Payouts + Warren Buffett’s “Ounce of Prevention Fund”(IL) and {3} Appendix of Tags from some Critical-to-Understand Posts

 

Link to that TOC 2016 (only, not preface and appendix material) in 8X11.5 word processing format (as a pdf, with post links active)Click to read full-sized==> familycourtmatters-wordpress-com-toc-2016-52-posts-5pp-1-9-2017 (images from it will be shown below also, with the link again).

This next, boxed (white-background) section is a quote from the 2016 post reflecting my thinking at the time and raises points to keep in mind when looking at organization’s self-disclosures vs. what their financials disclose — labeling and categories as key to comprehension.

“…Develop the ability to keep the background “ops” in mind while reading Public Relations Promotions…”

  • Introductions come first, so the order of material within the post obviously would be {2} Intro, {1} Table, {3} Appendix.  The most important part of post title is that it contains a Table of Contents.  So there you have it regarding minor conflicts of labeling systems (title vs. post itself).  Nothing new about that, so long as the context where each one applies is understood. But, can you keep straight conflicts between an organization’s self-disclosure on the websites and what the financials, fling history, and close organizational “friends” all reveal about the same entity, or as it often goes, “entities”?
  • I looked at one tax return today, representing several entities at one location, and found that the “disregarded entities” held positives assets controlled by ONE Form 990-filer (i.e., public charity) totaling over $60 million dollars among three LLCs.  Meanwhile they were declaring negative cash flow and on the same return a reference to a NEGATIVE $67M balance in their financial statements — the same return.  This entity had a board of only three officers — a married couple, and one other.  The entity was formed this century.  Collectively, however, the same leadership has many pots on the stove, so to speak.
  • Labeling, presentation, and categorization in accounting is apparently everything. Develop the ability to keep the background “ops” in mind (or at least know where to find them again if exact details not remembered) while reading the Public Relations Promotions (whether found on organization website, on a government website regarding the organization it is (like as not) partnering with, or even on — as I discovered again within the last three days — a well-known research university’s website.

For 6/2014 and earlier, back to 9/2012 ==>: My Posts, Just the List (June 29, 2014..back to Sept. 24, 2012. From Jan. 23, 2016 forward now available @ “Table of Contents 2016 ONLY” Post)

==> ==> My “New, Improved!” (perhaps easier to browse) Table of Posts in paginated, 8.5X11 viewing format, [37pp in all]completed Wed. January 11, 2017 from the above post (only) link.  Click on the pdf, and know that all links on this pdf except a very few which may be an image of someone else’s website, are indeed active.  The main part looks similar to the images below; but this being so much longer, has different sections. Otherwise, I’ll add it to the 2014 post, and may publicize in its own post soon.   . . . The table of contents (therein) is on pp. 4-20.

I didn’t count, but the table has 143 rows.  Give or take the header and a few spares, this represents about 140 posts from 2012-2014.  In mid-2012, my understanding of certain financial concepts (like CAFRs) AND of the history of psychology as related to the development of the family courts, accelerated and deepened, helping connect the financial to the psychological to the business sectors — to taxes.  Browsing the titles might just be a good overview.

Images from this format — you will notice the same (date, filename, blog/username, page #) header on every page, and a footer (yellow-highlit) containing Notice to readers.  It’s self-explanatory.  Here are a few images (no active links in the images, only the pdf above…):

As of now, I’d already researched about every other one on the (2009) list, and posted on several. If you read this blog frequently, you’d recognize several names in the context of their operations to change public institutions.  These are privately controlled non-profit foundations controlling assets numbered in the billions of US$.  I had warned people about this in mid-2013 already.

And they are influencing social and justice policies, not to mention education and immigration also.

There are specialized magazines for such foundations, as “the good guys” or as investment platforms — but mainstream media (print, on-line, TV) otherwise just does not report** on the sector as a risk to legal representation of individuals in the United States of America, which it absolutely is.

Not to mention sponsoring organizations who often do not comply with state OR federal registration, filing, and incorporation laws here.

**I did — in part after I discovered some of the largest ones (Ford, Annie E. Casey, at points an Open Society foundation) pushing “responsible fatherhood” programs. And after I found one even partnering with the NYS Unified Court System to push certain types of programming favorable to a certain association I also blog on, consistently.

Many of these relate to diverting process outside the court room and into private (or, public/private) behavioral modification purposes, rather than emphasizing direct criminal prosecution/sentencing, such diversions being based on the need for system-wide change because of its racism.  Annie E. Casey, MacArthur working tag-team on this with particular focus on youth, and particularly youth in foster care or child welfare systems. Entire states are chosen to test solutions for the stated problems (Models for Change, JDAI, etc.)

So, my endnote on May 6, 2013 post “Private Equity Takes a New Tack” (also seen in the starred image, above left, from “List of Selected Posts with Endnotes”) referenced these entities.  That “tack” referred to buying of hard-asset infrastructure in, say, sub-Saharan Africa (a dam in Namibia, I think it was).

Whenever private entities control public resources, it’s going to affect any local population.

Similar things are happening here, within America, but we somehow don’t seem to realize it, as having been coached not to think about who owns which real estate and assets, but “we’re all in this together” and in terms of social services.  What about the roads, public buildings, dams, levees, schools, universities (public ones I mean) as to their property (real estate); what about access to “the grid” whether it’s electric, and/or communications?  Who owns, and who charges access fees?

You may be interested in looking at the CENIC information (when I re- publish it, soon I hope..//LGH 7-1-2019)

 

 

Anyhow, this is a Table of Contents page, not an “organization analysis page.”…. I see what I see, but it’s not worth the effort to document here.  You have been notified, it’s worth looking at….

Thanks for publicizing this blogs to interested others.  If you run across people blogging similar material, I’d love to have a link and add it to the sidebar, or see where material overlaps or diverges, and if so, how.  Who knows, working WITH others on documenting, investigating, and changing the conversations, might still even be possible (although after nearly a decade, I remain a skeptic….).  //LGH 9/28/2017.

 


Reminder of the footnote on the pdfs requesting reasonable anonymity and preference to use “Let’s Get Honest” over my personal name, even though it is now known on this blog….



[fn1] I would appreciate in general being referred to as “Let’s Get Honest” rather than my given name, for reasons relating to my personal circumstances locally (i.e., for safety reasons) and to keep the focus on the subject matter of the blog — not anecdotal accounts of divorce and custody proceedings, which to anyone but parties to the case and eyewitnesses, are effectively hearsay to the general reader.  But, I have poured my time and life into this material because there was a major gap in reporting which left a major gap in credibility of the reporting which was taking place on the matter of custody of children post-separation-from abuse and this whole field of the family courts as disrupting family relationships.  And credit should be given where credit is due.  My perspective and voice represents my own and seems to be unique among those reporting on even some of the court-connected corporations.  Do not plaigiarize or quote sections of this without appropriate acknowledgement AND attached links.  (Click full-sized pdf, read NOTICE above).
