THIS POST IS: “The Family Court Franchise System” (Blogspot.com, 2012 only, 40 posts and 7 Pages) Is Now Grafted into FamilyCourtMatters.org here (WordPress.com) as of April 7, 2019.

(Case-sensitive shortlink ends “-9Aj” Published April 19, 2019, approx. 10,000 words including the index (table of contents), Updated and copyedited April 21 for clarity.  Check back here periodically for which of those 47 indexed reports (post & pages) have been published (as a re-post, some with updates or reiterations of relevance to current context) on this blog. 

Truth Fuels Flight, Lies Ensnare. Don’t Hang With, Serve (or Donate to) Tricksters or Their Targets. It’s a New Year — but there is STILL no excuse for abuse. {{Caption refers to 2018, when I upgraded and reformatted this blog}}

This post provides an index of (40) saved posts and (7) pages from my Google-based blog “The Family Court Franchise System” (domain name “thefamilycourtmoneymachine”) which have been merged into this WordPress blog (domain name FamilyCourtMatters).  On The Family Court Franchise System I posted under username “Liberty,” with the gravatar image, a white car viewed from the rear, with bumpersticker “There’s No Excuse for Abuse,” an also used here before I changed to the blue jay taking flight image.

That index (table of contents) of my writing (posts and pages) previously published off-site is this post’s main payload.  The secondary payload is the post’s extended introduction explaining why I bothered with this project now. To answer that question, why I bothered with this project now, I explain how my reporting (primarily, investigative blogging) differs from mainstream reporting on the same subject matter.  It addresses a gap in standard mainstream media (“MSM”) styles of reporting and among most sponsored nonprofit advocacy group reporting across several vehicles (websites, group emails, Twitter accounts, Facebook, when quoted periodically in MSM..

This “Why bother?” multi-section** introduction provides some perspective and overview of my writing to date on the background context of topics which are still making the news. Even as stated seven years ago, this is still valuable, basic, and typically overlooked in MSM and advocacy group insight.  If I didn’t believe this, I certainly wouldn’t have bothered integrating the two blogs. Instead I’d have just saved (for personal, private use) my writing from “The Family Court Franchise System” blog spanning only two seasons of one year, 2012.

**Look for section titles such as: ~> “Why that blog then, in 2012?  Why integrate it here now, seven years later, in 2019?,” another section, ~> “Notice, Know, and Make a Note of who’s specifically funding which media on any key articles in subject matter of interest,” also ~>A KEY PROBLEM: UNPROVEN ASSUMPTIONS SNUCK IN THE FRONT DOOR | IN ADVOCACY RHETORIC & STANDARD DV/FAMILY COURT MSM REPORTING:”  and (coming soon) yet another section I wrote, then “off-ramped,” ~>”More about those perspectives and key concepts (and actors),“* leaving its footprint and follow-up link here. There are also a few fine-print descriptions on ~>the mechanics of the move (i.e., blog merger, migration).

{*”More about those perspectives and key concepts (and actors) (See Also upcoming “A Closer Look At — and Alternate Interpretation of — Who’s Funding Poverty Research..” (Started April 19, 2019, Published May 6): (short-link ends “-9MU”).}

I may mark this post “sticky” (still deciding), which would make it the  9th “sticky” post at the top of the blog (“Current Posts” pages).

All this takes a while to explain, but people short on time should be sure to scroll down far enough to at least view the index and (in future weeks, months) see which of them have been published here. All migrated posts are, as in all my blogging, my writing and my voice except where quoting other sources.

My life is often unpredictable long-term, or even a half-year at a time ahead, but I hope this effort will make possible more frequent posting and on-line resources in this field than has been available on this blog or on my individual socio-media accounts the last several months. Again, details change.  Basics often don’t.  It should be common knowledge, I believe is common-sense, but unfortunately remains uncommon analysis.

In fact, people consistently bypassing their personal, consistent, ongoing acts of “analysis” — before marketing/promotion, publicity-seeking, consensus-building, campaigning to pass more laws to regulate family courts  or obtain specific outcomes — seems, unfortunately, to be the widespread common practice.  To even engage in analysis starts with a decision, sometimes prompted by a nagging unanswered question. It reflects a mindset, and with that mindset can become an acquired skill; it just takes time.

What’s yours worth?

Thank you. //LGH

Mechanics of the Move Affects When You Can View The Posts and Pages Moved Here, and Why I can Pre-Publish the Contents:

Those 40 posts and 7 pages now saved here as drafts (I made them all posts, no new pages) will be gradually integrated by publishing them into my ongoing production of any future, newly-written posts. Because it’s migration from a pre-existing blog, I already know all the titles, so I can provide this complete list of titles up front for points of reference.

Running the Maze, Triathlon-Style, Continuing To Leave a Broad Trail of Breadcrumbs, Field Guides, Consumer Alerts etc. (Published April 10, 2019)

leave a comment »

 


I’ve not posted anything since late March in part because I’ve been working intensely on the project this post introduces.  Actually, this post introduces another, upcoming post which diagrams (indexes) the project. The project, ideally, will continue over the next weeks/months as I gradually blend one of my blogs into this main one and update the index with each new post.

I have to say “ideally” because my available time isn’t predictable from month to month or year to year. Hence sometimes the best I can leave is a broad trail of breadcrumbs, distributed wherever I am at any point in time while still running what seems like an endless maze, with daunting obstacles at every apparent “Exit” sign. We all know human, physical life itself has a certain exit — I’m just trying to get into a different place before that final exit.  Anyhow, right now,…


You are reading: Running the Maze, Triathlon-Style, Continuing To Leave a Broad Trail of Breadcrumbs, Field Guides, Consumer Alerts etc. (short-link ends “-9IU,” published April 10, 2019).  It’s about 7,000 words long, in conversational tone and reflects my opinion and perspective.

If you cannot read it all, please scroll down to near the bottom, where this post began and where I explain what is meant by the “triathlon” reference in the title.

After a decade of blogging and other writing, my opinion and perspective still seem to be the minority, if not outlawed set of concepts when it comes to easier to digest (less analytical!) catch-phrases to organize demands to improve or enhance the family courts vis-a-vis better protecting children from abuse, stopping domestic violence, etc.  I cannot swallow, and do not endorse swallowing the level of compromise I see promoted, but at least explain why — which is my “broad trail of breadcrumbs.”

I remain utterly “recalcitrant” (unrepentant about failure to conform to an observable status quo in certain movements, based on what I’ve seen throughout the system infrastructure — at least so far as I’ve been able to see it from public-access sources).


This post is to gently warn readers of another upcoming, heavily-loaded one, with its own Table of Contents and some of its own intro complete with images and references to things that don’t typically make mainstream media in association with reports about family courts, reunification camp survivors and operators, and domestic-violence-, about-to-divorce, or custody-exchange related murders (see below).

This post contains more personal/anecdotal perspective as opinion, while the upcoming one is oriented more towards data and documentation. To keep the two writing styles and types of content separate and for easier access to that index I segregated my value-laden labels and commentary here (see title: Maze, Marathon, Marking the Trail, Consumer alerts, etc.) from the upcoming post designed to function like a Table of Contents to the merged-in, migrating blog posts and pages only, a subset of this larger and older blog FamilyCourtMatters.org. The upcoming post has its own illustrated overview naming specific and influential people, organizations and institutions behind the policies I protest.  The blog being blended in is also, like most of my writing, opinionated, but it at least shows the data on which I base those opinions, and where it comes from.


That imminent (to be published tomorrow or the day after) post, representing a recent blog migration project, is:

“The Family Court Franchise System” (Blogspot.com, 2012 only, 40 posts and 7 Pages) Is Now Grafted into FamilyCourtMatters.org here (WordPress.com) as of April 9, 2019” (Case-sensitive shortlink ends “-9Aj”)
