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.

Because it’s also been moved here in draft form, that list can and does have active links for every single title of the 47 in advance of publication.  I am also glad to have my own points of reference linkable in one place, rather than continually “re-inventing the wheel” on key principles and concepts I’d already documented.

One important thing to understand about this list is that, while still up, link to former location on the old blog is still active, but actual link to the new one not active until I actually publish it — however  all posts published on this platform are automatically clickable either on the Archives, on the right-sidebar widget of “most recent posts” (WordPress will not distinguish between re-posts and new ones; all are listed), or you can as always simply scroll down the main “Current posts” page to see which is the latest one.  I’ve done some formatting clean up, links replacement, and updates, which should make re-posts a little better.

My earlier work on that blog still exists now but on an apparently (according to a fine-print message I saw on another blog, same carrier), disappearing electronic media platform, as far as individual users.

Having now saved them to this blog through the amazing four basic text editing functions, 1. “Select-All,” 2. “Copy” (switch to blank post on this blog) 3.”Paste” and 4. “Save Draft,”* I expect to intersperse re-posts here with any continuing work on current issues I may be able to produce in the next months.  I’ve taken several steps to distinguish re-posts from newly written ones.  For example, all post titles end with specific wording saying so: “…(From my “The Family Court Franchise System” blog, published Feb. 23, 2012).”  The migrated posts’ background-color and basic fonts and will look mostly like this, as opposed to, generally, like this).

I posted a notice this was happening on April 10, and this post as you can see came out April 19.

[*That simplified description omits extra functions like “update post titles, provide new links, label new links, index them, and as needed, clear up or manually replace/adjust internal post tables — often TAGGS (HHS grants data) tables — replace or clean up formatting lost or responding differently in the move, a bit of annotation or updates for some]. The process took over a week… But still, it’s basically: 1. Select-ALL, 2. BLOCK-COPY, Switch windows, 3. PASTE, 4. SAVE, [Link/Label, SAVE AGAIN, go back to original blog, repeat] (and set up and fill out the index below… all manually…] //LGH

An explanation of why any single blogger would take the time and effort to re-post work from seven years ago is in order.  I give my reasoning here, below which are: some images of the old blog, a sample row from the index table (because layout is a bit unusual, with two rows per post),** then the full index (Table of Contents), with the other blog’s posts first, then pages (from the old blog) in bright-yellow highlit rows*** and even a very few footnotes to the index featuring specific posts.

This time for better browsing, I also included more description: approximate length in words, and for many posts, labels (tags) right in the table itself.

**Mechanics of the Move, cont’d. All posts moved here have current links — but those links won’t become active until I post them.  Access remains valid at the old place so long as the platform is up and functional for single (vs. business) users like myself.  That’s essentially why there every title appears twice.  As I gradually integrate (publish) the new ones, I’ll mark them on the table too.  ***On migration, they are classified as “posts” because on this blog, my “Pages” function has different purposes. I’ll say this again closer to the index.

There are pros and cons to ease of viewing at each blog, but in the long run, I think that, with some updated links and cleaned up formatting, preserving the record over here was worth the effort, and may be prove to be easier, though less colorful (text-highlighting, font-colors, not vocabulary!) reading.  Some format functions (background-color, quotes, and especially, flexible (contained to post width) table margins) didn’t translate well between the platforms.

Meanwhile the list of titles also shows, for those who may be curious, that I’ve been onto this line of reporting since at least 2012, and perhaps why I don’t take a lot of  [four-letter scatalogical term omitted] when a few people continue attempting to dismiss and discredit it, or complain aloud about my lack of collaboration with any or all people or groups addressing the generic topic (domestic violence family courts), or who appear to be members of the same demographic**  who are barking up the wrong trees (tactically, strategically and even logically] and hoping it’ll be a loud enough group “bark” to silence what I have to say over here.

**MATCHING DEMOGRAPHICS =/= ANY DUTY TO CONSOLIDATED ACTION, CONSENSUS, OR GROUP ALLEGIANCE (a mini-rant):

I.e., yes, I  am a woman, a formerly battered wife, I am still a mother and domestic violence survivor, was a single mother while his (one father) and my children lived full-time — except for weekend visitations — in my household, but like many such mothers became abruptly (overnight) “noncustodial” several (about seven) years after separation and before our children became adults, i.e. reached the age of eighteen.  But I am also an individual and reserve my right to determine how to think, speak, and make individual judgments as part of deciding how to act. We are never only our demographics.


Plenty of people match this demographic.  That doesn’t require us, them, or me (pick a pronoun) to: agree with everyone when protesting that demographic’s treatment in the family court systems; sign all petitions; publicize and help promote all solutions claiming to improve, reform, make safer, or correct — with regard to this demographic — family court systems.  My matching certain demographics doesn’t require me to show up or promote all family court rallies, judicial council hearings in my local geographic area.. or to R3 (retweet, repost, & reference) (give on-line moral support) uncritically. My matching certain demographics does not and should not prevent me from exercising personal discretion and judgment on which movements — if any! — to join, or to silence my speaking openly, when I don’t, on why I don’t.  In other words, I have and endeavor to exercise my right to engage all my available faculties as a human being, as an individual.  My matching highly-publicized demographics on which many problemmatic (dangerous) public polices are based certainly does not require in essence I submerge myself in ANY group identity who claims to be addressing such problems.  NOR does it demand I stay mute (demonstrate silent assent) where I see groups engaging in cult tactics over many years, such as steering people into intellectual and social/emotional co-dependency, issuing repeated orders without showing the basis for them, and knowing engaging in censorship of information which, made available, might cause a drop in numbers (followers), based on having been lied to in the first place.


Groups actively seeking out and soliciting donations, memberships, and volunteer support from survivors of extreme violence or sexual assault, or parents of assaulted minors, i.e., their children, within marriage (or intimate partner relationships) and/or more years of grief, stress, and trouble via the family court systems afterwards to help or advocate from them have NO right to demand group intellectual and social/emotional co-dependency first in exchange for moral support, but their own fiscal accountability and real allegiances, essentially, never — but most do.


My blog(s) show finances and corporate/government backing as one way to assess who, and whose agenda,  these groups are themselves dependent upon (and sometimes, abjectly submissive to).  Ownership of individual entities can be looked up.  FINANCING of public ones, to a degree.  The more this is done, the clearer the landscape patterns become, which raises deeper problems, but at least addresses the key questions:  IS this group, or these group’s self-description and agenda in synch with their own reporting (to state and federal governents on their own operations).  Where they operate in coalitions (official or unofficial) how about their colleagues’ or collaborators’ track records? Where financing accountability is missing and/or obstructed, that’s an indicator.  ONCE a professional or individual is showing loyalty to or affiliation with any group, that groups’ corporate (or government entity) ID become relevant.  Sometimes individuals may not cite their own references, but promotion of product is usually not far below the surface.

I’m not trying to win converts from already-organized advocates.  I’m providing an outside point of reference for people, especially women and mothers (children aged out, minor children), whose gut instinct — “something ain’t right, but what?” —  is telling them something not getting validated on socio-media or in group email lists etc.

I’d like to remind/ask many of these women, did your gut instinct keep you and (as it applies) your children alive in exiting abuse?  Do your supportive off-line and particularly on-line group-email, Facebook, Twitter, individually owned blogs sharing re-posts, or comments/responses on any or all of the above relationships formed afterwards around similar issues encourage or discourage introducing outside information or links to it?  Do they facilitate or derail/dismiss public debate, or do they instead prioritize group, (sometimes called “community”) consensus and solidarity as the key value, and all other values secondary to it?

I’m one woman who has listened to my gut instincts (but made extraordinary efforts to also fact-check, question my own standards of measurement, and over time, check responses to information I would introduce in the above-listed formats, or at times even at the occasional conference I was able to attend.  I have no regrets in detaching from abusive situations or individuals, and making a note where support groups can become simply cults (information and vocabulary control),  post-abuse, regardless of what banner they are flying under.  I thoroughly enjoyed my own, ongoing learning curve across a variety of publications and fields (though focused on primary ones involving the professions found around the family court and related systems).


If I really believed my voice and viewpoints — as expressed on more than one blog — had no merit, and no potential for radically changing the “angle of approach” to these problems, I would’ve kept this information to myself.  As long as even one blog is operational and has some distribution and dissemination (though none sponsored so far), I believe its voice is at least ONE witness that other points of view exist.

I’ve already had feedback (some on this blog, some private) that it has helped some individuals NOT go nuts in their own situations (through, I gather, confusion).  For more details on what types of entities (governments, corporations, universities and in which countries, individual or the above categories) seem to be consistently following FamilyCourtMatters.org, see “Footnote Statcounter, April 21, 2019” at or near the very bottom. I feel this is relevant to why I bothered to save similar material posted elsewhere…

Why bother?

While these are re-posts of my prior writing and some of the material is no longer immediate headline current news (or news media major themes), most of my writing isn’t based on or organized around current news that periodically surfaces on the family courts. That type of news coverage generally features a standard template:

  • story line introducing a personal, often but not always anonymous problem;
  • quote a local or national expert;
  • indicate there are some problems with a specific program (or certain judges, evaluators, or local courts) or practice (administration of such programs), and
  • speculate on why and what to do about it– such as (lately) reunification camps and therapy.


The news formats in place naturally respond to the publishing media’s funders, organizers, and intended audience.  Who’s specifically funding which media is relevant and should be kept in mind.  It is going to involve usually major corporate wealth and tax-exempt foundations with an agenda.  Tax-exempt foundations are increasingly well-coordinated and collaborate upon causes (whether progressive or conservative, generally).  They are also increasingly consolidated to the point that without becoming aware of who’s running which platforms and backing which journalists in, for example “sponsored content” to go with the platform.

I call this looking at the “window frame” of such on-line publications (at the very top and at the very bottom).  None of this information even if available to see for free, is truly free.  It takes any individual’s personal time and a personal commitment to keep connecting the dots.  I certainly found this a worthwhile investment of my time, although regrettably, I do not know enough people concerned with this subject matter (family courts) who will openly admit that it’s even worth a casual consideration.

There is an off-ramped section to this introduction; if I can get it published within the week, it provides a good example; but I’ve given examples periodically on FamilyCourtMatters.org over time.  I am more tuned into it now than I was seven years ago, but awareness of its relevance has been there the whole time.

Notice, Know, and Make a Note of who’s specifically funding which media on any key articles in subject matter of interest:

Without keeping some attention on this context, as entertaining as reading such news can be (I read on-line news also), you cannot and will not know how truly public or independent journalism is — including on the subject matter of interest —  and what key factors it’s likely to omit as not on the agenda of any sponsoring publisher, and not likely to drive revenues and readership.

My emphasis is for the longer-term attentive and I prefer analyze and teach basics that can be independently verified (without taking a position on things one has no eye-witness connection to), and providing people with tools — including certain language to use in on-line searches and places to look (do their own look-ups).  This provides more depth of understanding and types of understanding that are highly transferable to other fields — not just specific to the family court problems.  It is designed to avoid perpetually spinning one’s mental and communication wheels in the same ruts, barely making progress and sometimes digging those ruts deeper.

I also believe that more independent analysis (individually verified to the point an individual could argue the point without embarrasment in a variety of situations) helps avoid group-mentality and joining cults which — eventually are going to betray followers and sacrifice them for the leaders’ agenda.

A KEY PROBLEM: UNPROVEN ASSUMPTIONS SNUCK IN THE FRONT DOOR

IN ADVOCACY RHETORIC & STANDARD DV/FAMILY COURT MSM REPORTING:

A key problem with what I’ve seen so far (expressed on my home page, and consistently for around five years now, if not more) is that following such agenda and rhetoric incorporates — often snuck in the very first sentence of any report — unproven assumptions, and builds upon them.  These assumptions (and they are specifically relevant to this field) short-circuit the circulation ideas which might challenge the promoted solutions by the same groups, let alone any constructive and open debate about them.

Reading those tax returns and paying attention to who goes into personal attack/dismiss/discredit mode when an article contents are even questioned, that is articles which hit mainstream media, shows this tendency even among individuals who I seriously doubt are on any payroll associated with the advocacy groups.  But (follow through will often show) some try to set up related income streams, whether selling their stories (on-line books, media appearances) or even just consulting time.

These unproven and significant assumptions also by association imply (and in many ways, correctly) that followers are gullible and not using their common sense, reason, and powers of observation to the situations.  As many of these followers tend to be women — mothers who have lost custody of their minor children or are about to — they also discredit that demographic (mothers undergoing custody challenge) as a whole. In other words, generic stupidity  — and failure to examine the premises or check out the organizations involved from sources outside their own coalitions, is a form of stupidity — affects others in the same ‘sector’ (classification of people). It also discredits any related “movement” and, speaking for myself, is a reason I cannot join the so-called “mothers’ movement” or the groups involved in it.

Naturally, I want colleagues in researching some of these items?  Sure, I have feelings about this situation — but the actions I’ve taken include continuing to publish  and at least keep some “to the contrary” views in circulationnot lowering standards or collaborating with “dogs-in-the-manger” invested in having masses of women compromise THEIR standards too.

Certain types of censorship and behaviors are personal deal-breakers.  Consensus around collective deceit is a deal-breaker.  What kind of decent movement is built on betrayal of trust, withholding critical information, and sending followers on to their own personal fiascoes year after year for the long-term goal of personal advancement and prestige?  Whose side is any movement (and its leadership) really on when that behavior is routine? We should bring out the best — not the worst — in each other within any group.

Debates can and should take place in public if they are fair and facts-based, not just competing for control of the microphone or megaphone (platform).  Again, follow the money and where it’s NOT being accounted for, is helpful in assessing agenda.


Nor is my writing typically focused on each successive “in-your-face” dramatic accounts of these issues the domestic violence fatalities and “estranged spouse” “bitter custody disputes.” Unfortunately, these particular forms of headlines are ALWAYS in the news somewhere, often in association with previously established court programs.

Instead I write (and Tweet, etc.) to keep calling attention to basic, discernible driving elements in the family courts and to various family court reform, child protection, domestic violence prevention (sic) movementsfirst in the US, but increasingly also because of privatization of family court activity and policymaking affecting it, also in Canada and “overseas.”**

For the ** overseas footnote, see the next section inset (with a large ** and this color background). I reference it also in the “***” footnote section inset, with a longer description: “The constant and probably unresolve-able tension between increased regionalism and blended public/private enterprises and service delivery and the concept of jurisdiction, representative government.

~ ~ ~ ~SECTION HAS BEEN MOVED.  LINK WILL BE INSERTED HERE ~ ~ ~

I have been writing in that vein since 2009, definitely in 2012 when FamilyCourtFranchise blog was set up and filled out (but only during that year).

I understand how and have some reasonable hypotheses why my operational and focus-on-the-fundings, “See the System | Do the Drill Down | Get to the Financials FIRST” perspective has been so minimized and generally discredited or ignored by more vocal (and actually funded) persuasive PR, professional public relations campaigns.  These campaigns are more “palatable” to the power structure by seeming to be more confrontational of it than they actually are.

I believe understanding the larger perspective will illuminate why the current popularized ones  [1] will show why they  are in fact, distractions, and very likely pre-designed intentionally distract from more direct and efficient perception.  

[1] (which I’ve been a witness to for over a decade now: NO major variation on any key themes has been introduced during that time. though I noticed as I characterize or challenge each new phrase as misleading, it gets replaced by newer ones)

Why that blog then, in 2012?  Why integrate it here now, seven years later, in 2019?

The year 2012 was a key turning point in my on-line research on two major levels of understanding: one was governmental financial statements; the other was a harder look at the background part of the AFCC “tripod” (trifecta?) of professions — those featuring the root word “psych-, whether attached to “psychology” or “Psychoanalysis” (a.k.a. Freud) and, to add drugs/Rx, “Psychiatry” and the emphasis on running court-mandated behavioral education classes often labeled “psycho-educational.”  Key posts in 2014 also addressed these themes (two of which made it as part of the blog motto).

In addition, certain key events and connections triggered my setting up a separate blog at that time, including long-term participation on and some involvement with parents who’d set up an on-line forum to discuss local issues in Lackawanna County, PA, issues and practices which mimicked ones and involved several of the same authors, judges, and evaluators I’d already noticed from California. 

The bottom line of “why bother?” is, I believe it’s worth saving on-line for public awareness and at least one on-line voice / witness of directions in the field, not just for my own personal records.

All this (referring to the material I just off-ramped!) reminds me, again:

Some people are poor.

Some, far fewer, people make a career studying and writing about the poor.

Some even do this over a lifetime on an academic (university) platform.  Meanwhile, as ever, Nothing in the 2010 Fragile Families issue I saw above indicates that one factor of poverty (and fragility of families) might be violence by one partner towards the other, i.e., abuse.

That long-term and consistent oversight doesn’t seem to be accidental and typifies volumes upon volumes of writings by the involved personnel, which omission leaves a foundational flaw in the infrastructure’s logic (at least as presented in the public interface) no matter how much the word “evidence-based” is flung around and patched on top of pre-fabricated, age-old overall scheme. [1],[2],[3].

[1] (Patriarchy is normal, matriarchy is abnormal/pathological, social science IS a science, and conflicts of interest and the vertical and horizontally networked monopoly is NOT to be featured or funded short-term or long term (or, when done, disseminated); and
[2] Although marriage, divorce, child support, and custody are “state-jurisdiction issues,” when people complain about treatment in the family courts under state jurisdiction, such as by suing for violation of their civil rights, when it comes to expending funds intended to help needy families (i.e. TANF) or enforce child support orders given at the state level (i.e., to reduce poverty) it’s suddenly and simultaneously a “federal issue” when people even THINK about not getting or staying married, or mothers, specifically, resist co-parenting with violent ex-partners.
[3] Barely concealed is fear of people of color reproducing too fast and not fitting into the “American way,” a.k.a. racism, just a few steps away from eugenics. When it comes to choosing between the most politically damaging beliefs to admit to: classism (arrogant, patronizing elitism: the colonizing attitude), racism (after the 1960s showed the fall-out of perpetuating it openly), and sexism” in the 1980s, 1990s, and so far in the 2000s in these circles it seems that being perceived as racist is worse than being perceived as sexist (against women as a class and demographic sector). A false humility about the longstanding “classism” is to be taken, I guess, at face value. The divide and conquer of the lower (low-income, middle-income) classes in the US) hits hard, deep and wide in favor of sexism as a socially acceptable cure for racism — and the band-aid “family/domestic violence prevention” controlled, dependent (upon federal government) and coordinated as to agenda and off-limits topics — supposedly has taken care of the sexism (violence against women)

This ranking (racism is bad, sexism, “Not so bad”) persists as shown in the social service sector —  even though (we, women and children mostly, and sometimes adult parents of both genders when it goes “execution-style”) are still getting murdered in the context of separating from abuse, supervised or unsupervised visitation, and even though children are still trafficked into the foster care system, or worse…MEANWHILE (for those who pay attention), part of the family/domestic violence prevention — it seems to be now mainstreamed, status quo, and expected — is to run marriage/fatherhood classes, i.e., “Engaging Men and Boys…”  This is a real “thing to behold” but you will NOT see its extent and nature until you start following through on both the service providers as nonprofits, networked with each other, running programs, and all of the above as it applies to federal grants from HHS and/or the USDOJ in particular.  I.e., what I’ve been blogging for years…

I don’t generally get too surprised, but I was still taken aback to see a FLORIDA CADV running a fatherhood program, and an HHS Action Transmittal or Information Memo (forget which –see my fairly recent (30 days or so) Twitter feed); I believe the name was “Family First.”  I didn’t even get (on that same HHS-website AT or IM) to posting on where Michael E. Lamb fit into the mix, although I did see it.  I didn’t get that far primarily because I am ONE person, no access to interns or volunteers, and it seems mothers now have more fun or work out some of their energies going after specific individuals — not specific networks in enough identifiable detail that anyone else might actually follow.

Oh, that, and setting themselves up in alignment with existing advocacy groups (unscreened) to simply ignore and (where i bring it up) dismiss this line of inquiry.

[The above commentary will be more relevant when considered with the material I just off-ramped, referring to university-based poverty centers of which system-wide transformation promoting ‘fatherhood’ is a key, central and ongoing theme..]

State-level, DV coalition and coordinated resource center groups (i.e., nonprofits, 501©s, etc.) are and have been for now at least two decades in unspoken consensus not to expose the funding of the Fathers’ Rights Groups (or the Court-connected corporation) in their victim-targeted materials; but at the funding and some of the programming level, followed more closely over time, the collaborations become clear.  Apparently most of the USA tax-paying population is to be kept in turmoil while continuing to be psychologically profiled, under duress… etc. and in some confusion why the war against domestic violence (i.e., preventing it, stopping it) isn’t doing much better than the war against poverty,  or the war against “fatherlessness” almost any other national policy-based declared ‘wars’ announced as in the public interest.

Obviously some of these wars are going to be fought in the family court arena and are relevant to understanding the backing and functioning of that arena, as public/private organized business model.


So there are some timeless aspects to my writing (and that blog) because it deals with those key players and evidence of their having big-backer public/private interests — and because it deals with operating principles, not just promotional rhetoric.

The upcoming reposts from an older, 2012 blog while they may not represent the current level or detailed depth/scope of investigation, understanding or research I’m at now, seven years later, still reference and document the organizations, issues, and public funding streams (i.e., federal grants particularly welfare or USDOJ-based, whether from the Violence Against Women Act or ℅ the OJJDP (more focused on Juvenile Justice) have been influencing and still influence where we are at in all those issues today.

And it asks I believe some penetrating questions about them.  For one example, go to the bottom of this post, where there are a few footnotes to some of the Table of Contents (index) entries, and read my “I ain’t your Mama” message under “Footnote to April 21, 2012, “Kids For Cash (Luzerne County) — It Ain’t Over Yet.”  

In that “Kids for Cash (Luzerne County)” post in 2012, repeated on the footnote here in 2019, I asked questions that I haven’t heard or read others asking about the system purposes of diversionary services in re: also providing opportunity for exactly the kind of RICO behind this scandal involving judges sending youth without proper protection (due process) to treatment institutions in which the judges had a financial interest, with shocking results and harm to the children.  [The link provided here, also in the index/table, is to the location on the old blog.  It is copied here, but I have not yet re-posted it here.  The “here” version will be of cleaner format an appearance.]

And I still don’t see any good answers to that question or public rebuttals to it. Seeing the RICO potential in the first place would entail becoming aware of the networked nonprofits taking public funds as an operating system (macro-economic purpose and functions affecting local jurisdiction operations in and on the family court system, from year to year, and strategically moving towards privatism and (with that move) less financial accountability for public finances, over the decades).


On merging the posts here and indexing them for the last few days, I see how much work, data, and detail went into their creation, which is perhaps not best reflected in their format at “blogger.com.” Moving them here, while a bit complex to meld with current work, is still I believe wise. The subject matter is, after all, similar if not the same.


The current situation (late March, early April, 2019)**

**(Where this Intro originally started).

The Family Court Franchise System” blog 40 posts 7 pages. 2012-2014.  That ancillary blog to the one you’re reading (FamilyCourtMatters.org) still holds key, relevant information I worked hard to find and post.  

I recently learned (looking at a different blog from the same platform) that platform for non-commercial owners is perhaps about to go down this weekend.  It was a very fine-print notice.  I’m taking no chances on losing data for my work (40 published posts, but 70 total) so far on: https://thefamilycourtmoneymachine.blogspot.com

Not being tech-savvy enough to confidently export it or willing to set up yet another blog on a different domain, I decided to merge it into this blog to preserve its contents on-line. Learning to export a blog is a surmountable task, but at this time, with my other life business I’m not ready to set up, nor do I see the purpose in setting up, a separate blog just to preserve a former one I am no longer adding to.

It’s still a time-consuming project.  “Thanks a lot, Google!”

That other blog, subtitled “Links, Posts, and Insights by Let’s Get Honest of [the blog you’re now reading]…”,  looks like this — only not so fuzzy!  Purple post titles and light gray font on a white background; different display options available.  This option is called “Mosaic”. I included the windowframe at top to show the actual url (exact web address, with blog domain name).

IMAGE 1: The Family Court Franchise System (my blogger.com “Familycourtmoneymachine.blogspot.com” 40-post, 7-page blog)

You may have seen parts of this blog before, either directly or as media attachments I occasionally reference on Twitter, and/or if you’ve been involved in the family court system in Scranton, Pennsylvania, that is, Lackawanna County several years past or happened to search some of the professionals or programs’ names on the internet.

(More images from the same:)

(IMAGE 2 showing POSTS) The Family Court Franchise System (my blogger.com “theFamilycourtmoneymachine.blogspot.com” 40-post blog)


For every post, and every page, there are two rows.  First, Title with a link its original location and date-published on the left; Second, as moved here, and obviously with a different link to where it will reside within this (wordpress) blog, and a title extension showing when and on which blog it was originally published (‘over there’), approximate word count and (as with the FCM TOC) the character string ending the short-link in right-hand column.

Here’s a sample, and it reflects the top-left (and most recent) displayed post on that blog. Note: while the date published reads “May 6, 2014, if you read the post, it was one drafted in 2012, and some events in 2014 apparently made me resolve to publish it.  This is basically a “2012 only” blog; it is a snapshot in time of my work, but as noted above, that work ties into ongoing situations and organizations, funding streams, and what seem to be deliberate and targeted campaigns to distract the concerned public (i.e., general public concerned about family courts, domestic violence, child abuse etc.)  from following those organizations and funding streams.

2014, May 6 How California Protective Parents Association, DOESN’T — and Why
HERE “HOW California Protective Parents Association DOESN’T…and Why” (from my “The Family Court Franchise System,” May 6, 2014) -9Af

Both links are valid; one leads to the older (though disappearing) post; the other is its new home, here — but available when I publish each post individually.  I’ll mark the ones published (reposted here), one by one, and notate on which date (because “Archives,” monthly calendar displaying at top right of the blog, will reflect each post on the calendar as having an active link on that date).


The table (index) will continue alternating colors:  Lavender background = old (and will show date published on the left), plain white background = new (at WordPress) and its right-hand column will contain the ending letter combination of the associated short-link, as I did in my recent post, 2018 table of contents.

Incidentally, that May 6, 2014, post title was true in 2014 as it was in 2004 (before CPPA leadership hooked up with what became Center for Judicial Excellence, Inc. to push the “Broken Family Courts” public relations aspect further), and remains true in 2019, from all I can see, and I do receive newsletters and maintain some connection with followers.  What’s more, CPPA as a registered business and charity in California, with at least some details visible there (such as that it’s not filing full-sized tax returns, but Forms 990-N, which not only reflects low stated revenues, but also a desire to retain low-visibility at the operations level, while high-visibility in the PR level when paired with others).  CJE continues to refer ONLY to websites which omit the key elements I’ve been blogging for years, and pitch stories which also tend to omit them (as has occurred in a recent piece “Bitter Custody” by Trey Bundy at “Reveal.org” (a project of Center for Investigative Reporting in Emeryville, California).


The ongoing waves of such half-investigated storytelling in respected outlets (and some less respected, but I’m referring to mainstream media) tends to wash away awareness of the operational realities, especially when people have not acquired a comprehension of it in the first place.  Essentially, they are reporting the car-crashes of the family courts, complete with assumption of causation, demands for solution based on those assumptions without describing the road maps, the planners, the construction crews, or the public/private collaborations creating the infrastructure in the first place.  

This business of selling self-serving but convincingly sincere [false] hope (more oversight, better training, less “flawed” practices) to the public AND the involved parents ALSO not hearing any significant, major or  highly sponsored voices (in the media OR in the nonprofit arena) specifically talking infrastructure and incentives — and “look for the tax returns and consider what you see” — also encourages a dynamic where followers (Graspers at straws) then turn on, typically, single bloggers (who just won’t shut up) for even criticizing the forward flow of this rhetoric.

That post also reviews who published the “ABA Commission on Domestic Violence” 10 Myths Fact Sheet, and some c.v. of Richard Gelles, Ph.D., (University Pennsylvania) who argues against them, noting sponsorship of the sociology career curve.


Visuals (Format): I want these older, but still informational posts (and pages) to look different from my normal style, and opted for a light-blue background with blue borders and Georgia font style (my normal style is “Avenir Next,” less curly, plain block print). I may alternate light-blue background with tan once I start publishing the posts. Either way I intend them to look significantly different from my new posts on more current topics even at first glance.

These “block copy & paste” to save all posts and pages from my 2012-2014 active blog are basically “as-is” and represent where my understanding was at the time, unless I choose to add some intro paragraphs.  Links may not all still be active; that’s not my main concern until all posts are preserved.  That said, I don’t see a whole lot I’d retract as mistaken or just “off” in logic or observation, seven years later.  

Some of them contain tables from TAGGS.HHS.Gov.  While the TAGGS platform has changed since (its user interface), they may be reproducible using any sort-n-search specs (filters) identified on the original and — because I know most TAGGS reports I show are “Advanced Search” — choosing which columns (fields) to display on the report results.   If I re-run it, I’ll include the TAGGS-generated tinyurl link in the intro.//LGH 3/29/2019.


ORDER: I’m copying them from top of FCFS blog as displayed in “Mosaic” format, (L to Right, Top to Bottom) which, generally, will be in reverse chrono order to match the visual appearance of the blog as imaged above.

Index/Table Format: Two rows/copied post:

  • First, old titles (with links active as long as the platform allows; I’m not shutting down the blog, but the domain name may go away) in lavender background rows; showing the original date published on the left;
  • Second, the same post title with phrasing added to indicate it was copied and from which date (with new at WordPress shortlink in right-hand column).

See Lefthand Column of Table (2nd row of each pair) where I’ll mark (date) when it’s available “HERE” replacing the word “HERE” on that table.  (Posts, FYI, will probably display better on WordPress).

Like any link it may exist as tied (accurately) to something in draft, but readers will not be able to connect directly, however (obviously) until any such draft is posted. I will pick and choose in which order to publish, however as of the date THIS post goes public, they all exist as saved drafts on this blog, that is, I’ve already copied the posts (only 40 in all) and pages (7 in all) one by one and created the table (index).//LGH 3-29-2019 – 4/11/2019.

HERE IT IS!

The 2012 post also holds seven pages, which will display differently (bright-yellow-highlit background) and like the posts, come with both an OLD and a NEW row, each with its respective links.  Also, in the migration, the former Pages are not saved as Pages here, but as normal Posts, to avoid confusion with my existing ones.  Their subject matter in general is similar to that in the posts.

(1) Lavender rows:  old links, still active until the platform gets shut down (not under my control).  (2) White rows (second of each pair) are on this blog, and will become active ONLY when I publish them.  I’m obviously not going to publish 40 posts in one day; likely one a day, if that often. So some patience is in order.  Having the older link allows viewing them there, meanwhile.  They are, however, likely to be more cleaned up once published here.  Another reason I discontinued posting at Blogger.com was I didn’t like the overall appearance and functionality compared to WordPress.

“JUST IN CASE” NOTE: If through any data entry error on my part some link at the old location doesn’t work, and the blog is still functional, it can be reached from its main/home page (TheFamilyCourtMoneyMachine.blogspot.com), view all posts (Mosaic style recommended) and click on the one you want. I’m just including them here also as a courtesy because I’m not posting all of them at WordPress at once. I’d also appreciate hearing (submit a comment) if you discover such inadvertent error.

~ ~ ~

RE: Left column “Copied here” — (all posts & pages are saved as drafts here til otherwise noted on left column, plain-colored rows).  As and when I publish, the “HERE” notation will be replaced by an actual (2019) year and date.  Publication may not be in chronological order.

In other words, I’m sure they are going to come out father-friendly if they wanted good grades in the courses.”

FOOTNOTES TO A FEW OF THE POSTS, by descending date order

Footnote “May 1, 2012, Lackluster Citizen Responses to Brilliant Violations of Citizens’ Rights, Labels:  Danielle Ross, fatherhood, GAL program, Hon.Chester Harhut, Justice Max Baer (PA), Michael L. Stefanov (PA), parent coordination, Scranton Political Times, Teri Jedusa-Nicolai case

(Deals with 11th Amendment immunity and other issues.  Jedusa-Nicolai case (Racine, WI) entailed her being beaten, fighting back too hard (though pregnant), stuffed into a garbage can filled with snow, trucked over the state line and left to die by her ex in a storage unit in IL (which she would have, except having fought & succeeded in making two calls to 911 and one to her finance and a single oversight by the ex- leaving the business card to the storage unit out), which occurred on a court-appointed visitation.  She lost all her toes as a result of that experience.)


Post Footnote May 3, 2012 Parenting Coordination:

Labels:  AFCC, Annie E Casey Foundation, child support, fatherhood, Godboldo case, parent coordination, Scranton Political Times.  As copied, at about 12,100 words, longer than the others.Comments: It preserves several entries from another forum (Scranton Political Times) but before even getting to that, is still hard-hitting, and provides an analogy (if the courts responded to traffic accidents the way they do respond to domestic violence and child abuse perpetration).  The forum container (margins) will need work, but the top section is straightforward reading, and I hope you do, once I publish it. //LGH 3/30/2019


Footnote to April 21, 2012, “Kids For Cash (Luzerne County) — It Ain’t Over Yet”

Quote from the post intro.  This was a hard-hitting post, or at least intro, with the theme “Educate Yo’self,” which in looking more closely at a single entity, Juvenile Law Center,** I was doing.

(**Note to self: doublecheck entity name.  I sometimes mix this one up with another, similar one).

When the Kids for Cash (judicial racketeering/RICO) scandal hit nationally, how many people looked into or asked why parents had to bring it to the Juvenile Law Center here (and it didn’t discover on its own, while functioning as a lead agency in MacArthur Foundation’s mass demonstration on a few different states (Pennsylvania, Illinois, Washington State among them) with this as “lead agency” in “Models for Change..”

At least one young man subjected to the treatment committed suicide as a result of it.

The RICO happened in a diversionary service provider.  JLC is pushing diversionary services (as part of Models for Change).  Hmm…

Separately (I discovered this probably later, and blogged it here at FamilyCourtMatters, not at the Franchise System blog) NCJFCJ’s Pennsylvania outpost (“E. Hunter Hurst, III” as I recall, look for a post on this blog “About That Find” or “NCJJ”) also was pushing diversionary services — yet NCJFCJ neglected to mention the same guy was massively into a public-traded (eventually) company based in Arizona for youth treatment centers, several of which had been outed for abuse in their various states (such as Florida).  You can look it up.

It takes thinking about nonprofits AS nonprofits and an awareness of how the public institutions (such as the courts — or schools, or schools and courts combined) function as ATM machines for service providers, and the human capital flowing through them are a form of commerce, with per-capita charges, it seems.  How can the good guys also be part of the bad-guys setting up the situations in the first place, or playing one alternative (youth incarceration, disproportionate minority — obviously bad) with another (“JDAI,” diversionary services to community providers) which can also, as investment opportunities for judges and others, incentivize over-delivery of human beings for treatment –instead of for incarceration..

DISCLAIMER TO READERS:

I am not your Mama, and you are not a little baby bird.  Although I do swallow, chew, and (OK, it’s true) “regurgitate” that information onto a blog, I have other motivations for doing so.  

You want to see some change?  Educate yourself and get the larger picture, master a few concepts and become familiar with some basic organizations and personnel.  There IS a pattern, and be ready to become sensitive to other patterns developing.  Don’t hang around confused and upset — or happy and dumb.  Do something useful — look it up, think about it, talk about it, validate or invalidate (TRUST your judgment) and make a decision.

People who deal with any local service-providing organization need to become aware of what its affiliations are, which (thanks to the wonder of the Internet) can be sought out, at least many of them.  Remember there are no free lunches, and there ARE “Greeks bearing gifts.”  “Caveat emptor” (buyer beware).   

FYI — just because you got pro bono services doesn’t mean they were free. UNDERSTAND the forms of exchange your government is involved in.  People who don’t have cash can pay with their offspring, after all, it’s HUMAN services we are dealing with here — programs esp. under HHS….  It’s only naturally they will traffick in live human beings when not enough cash to get free exists.

PRO BONO:  Someone paid for them, or you may, down the road.  For example, one time  BRIEFLY, I took Food Stamps and Cash Aid immediately after separating from a violent man who had used force to shut me down economically and taken things that didn’t belong to him in that category.  He also was apparently aware I was getting ready to leave — and put on more and more pressure to make sure I wouldn’t be able to stash any cash to make the jump.  My instinct at that time was it was wiser to jump, than to stay around and hope to change the dynamics in time to not get shot or stabbed to death.  We had children.  

This meant that, on the way out I initially had to jump onto some cash aid.  That means Title IV.  I’m female — and eventually, the delayed bill was MY CHILDREN.  For a bit of food and cash — we were sold down the river through County Control of the Child Support (that means they can enforce, or not enforce, at will.  In doing so, it will be their — it was not my kids’ — best interests which prevail).

Either way — find out which end is up.  “Who pays the piper calls the tune.” 

On that topic — the Juvenile Law Center, having helped expose the scandal — and the State of Pennsylvania being highly motivated to clear its name– some legislative changes were obtained.  This is not surprising and what letting crises develop in the first place (or inciting some) is usually all about, up to and including wars.


Footnote to March 29, 2012, Social Security = Social Science Demos (Section 1115 Waivers)

In cleaning up a migrated post, I sometimes look up expired links, or re-format or re-run searches on any “TAGGS.HHS.gov” tables which are throughout my blogs as a “Show” part of the “Show and Tell,” i.e., evidence for the points I’m making, or policies and practices I’m pointing out.  Here, re-run for Tennessee, CFDA #93564= https://taggs.hhs.gov/saved-search/wgdw1x;  For Texas, same CFDA= http://tinyurl.com/yx9h6359. I individually checked Fiscal Years 2012-2019 for each.  Looking at the Principal Investigators under Texas (one is well-known in the fields, the others I never heard of), I took time and space to look them up, enclosed some captioned images. The extended intro doubled the size of the post which otherwise talks in general (quoting the legislation) on those Waivers for Research and Demonstration projects on the (Poor).

Footnote to March 14, 2012 Page (now become a Post), “Three Cities That Rule the World,” including the Ever-expanding Field of DV Leadership (shortlink ends “9IM”)

I can see from the post that I was actually more upset about the increasing centralization of the DV field, as it happens, some of it in the Northern California area where I was dealing with the usual post-DV issues.  The “Three Cities” part is appended to the bottom of this page (now a post).  A bit embarrassed to see I was feeding off “prisonplanet.com” (a different sensibility of this with subsequent U.S. Presidential Administrations seems to apply), not that I’m in complete disagreement with the analysis.  However my main point was the second half of the title — not the first half.  As expressed by this paragraph, on hearing of CPEDV (et al.’s) “Strong Field Project.”

I thought the idea was to actually STOP domestic violence, not build and expand an institution of theories about it!   That’s why women like me have to blog individually, and actually get the truth of the matter (once it hits family courts) on-line:  This crowd runs shelters, crisis lines, shares as vocabulary, teaches each others how to get more grants to do more of the same and IGNORES what happens to mothers with children (including in shelters) the SECOND there’s a custody dispute.  They have not blogged or reported the things that these mothers deserve to know, because it simply wasn’t on the agenda.

I also noticed, on quick review today, that what’s now called “CORA” (Communities Overcoming Relationship Violence) started in 1977 and underwent the usual name changes to ELIMINATE any reference to the level of violence women (still) face, or in fact, women at all — or even violence.  The fast sequence of names (easily trackable at BusinessSearch.sos.ca.gov; search by name or that Corporate Entity# provided above):

(1)  (Shown on earliest available pdf image) “La Casa de San Mateo” (changed in 1992 to): (2) “Battered Women’s Services of San Mateo” (changed in 1995 to:) (3) “Center for Domestic Violence Prevention,” (changed in 2004 only to) (4) “CORA (Community Overcoming Relationship Abuse).”  At all times, “The Corporation has no members.”  (Last two images of gallery below show which gov’t agencies supporting it, as submitted through a recent “RRF” (charity annual renewal form for the state).  They are supposed to provide a personal contact name and telephone # for all government agencies; did for some, but not all.  That is the clear instruction on the form.

San Mateo is among the nine San Francisco Bay Area Counties, and just south of SF on the SF Peninsula.  My understanding is that it’s a well-to-do-area, but I cannot speak authoritatively on that.  For the record, I am far less concerned about this individual organization (other than as a common example of evolving names in the field which submerge its origins — protecting battered women) than, for example, the CPEDV (mentioned on that post) and “Strong Field Project” trends.  I am footnoting here in part because that page title was less than representative of the situations that inspired it.

It is odd, and sad, that no financial statements, though provided to the California OAG (Attorney General’s Office) as I’m sure is required, and they admitted receiving at least one year, have been provided on the registry for public viewing for an organization so heavily dependent (about 50%) on government grants to function.  HOWEVER, the organization itself is posting its own audited financial reports (Bravo!) under Financials — that’s actually rare.

They refer to a 2004 merger with another organization which I don’t see on the California SOS, but for what it’s worth, here’s that image from the most recent audited Financial Statements.  The Notes Payable section (on various properties) might also be interesting.  Sounds like they are doing good work.  That said, my sentiment on the original page still stands — why aren’t the DV organizations publicizing the HMRF funding?

CORA (Community Overcoming Relationship Abuse) CA Entity C0832160, EIN# 942481188, WEBSITE provides audited FS, Forms 990 and Annual Repts). Note 1 refers to a 2004 merger

Footnote “Pennsylvania (Scranton Political Times, etc.) (From my “The Family Court Franchise System” blog page published March 1, 2012),” (short-link ends “-9K4”)

2019 Preview (Comments on this former Blogger Page become a WordPress Post.)

I see in blog migration that this post explains one of my main motives for having created the blog, after some time participating in an owned on-line forum which, it turned out had far more usernames than live human beings posting (ratio unknown), as related to preserving and simplifying links to the Scranton-based on-line forum.  The post briefly mentions several key organizations (including NACC and the Juvenile Law Center), people, a Pennsylvania initiatives, and the problems with the business model in operation.  I also noted some of the local resistance to “outsider” ideas although what I had to say documented nationally networked organizations influencing the local courthouse ethics they were complaining about. This might be one place to start if you’re interested in a scope of the migrated blog contents.//LGH April 15, 2019.

Footnote Statcounter, April 21, 2019 (“Recent Visitors” function):

Regarding FamilyCourtMatters (not my Google-based/blogspot.com) blog:

Another form of feedback which I’m not going to publish because some of it may reveal personal IPs, but any blog administrator can obtain on their own blogs, is the ongoing, automated record of WHO has been visiting FamilyCourtMatters (moreso than the blog I’m integrating here, which I didn’t continue adding to and publicizing consistently) is what types of followers are visiting and how long some of them are staying, without necessarily becoming official followers. (I use statcounter, but no doubt other trackers exist).

Where the browsers are not generic (Comcast, Verizon, etc.) but identified by either government, university, or company, this can be viewed.  Whether or not the browsers are identified by a company name, they are also identified by point of origin (Country, often but not always specific to the city).  Thus I know there are many ongoing visitors from the UK (all kinds of places) and Australia, from many US universities (both the Ivy Leaguers and certain public universities), plenty that are “State of” … “County of…” or some agency within government (i.e., “Dept. of…”) and at the federal level also.  Although I’m not sure exactly why (as they aren’t talking back) FamilyCourtMatters.org is being followed consistently by visitors (same IP address repeated views; which statcounter counts) from France, Germany, and for some reason recently Viet Nam..

For whatever reason, these places found it worthwhile to at least check out the blog repeatedly, some stay for several hours at a time, some, the time spent does not display etc.  I encourage any other bloggers who stay active publishing to include some “html” on their own websites and notice who is visiting. //LGH Apr 21, 2019.
