Why This Post?

The last post, on the global promotion of “HiAP,” — Post title and shortlink: HiAP (HEALTH, not LAW*, in All Policies) Coordinated from Afar, Applied Locally, including throughout the USA. (case-sensitive shortlink ends “-7LY”).  About 12,800 words, published Oct. 24, 2017 referenced a “Health as an Asset” section on another of my recent posts, but I didn’t remember which one by name.

Looking to include a link, I discovered that section was so hard to find and so far down on an already information-and-image-loaded post (for which I hadn’t yet added any tags*), that I’m copying it here under its own title, to juxtapose it to the HiAP post.  (It also remains at the prior location).

(*but now have — and over a dozen of them to the HiAP post too).  This was an important post! It contains among other things a colorful WHO Banner explaining around which basic life elements and processes the calling-card “HiAP” intends govt – private – regional -local – and other powers to collaborate (to reduce air pollution) and clear statements of intent to impose HiAP on all — with the corollary, universal health care for all — demonstrates beyond a reasonable doubt how fast this was spread through the system, and lists several organizations, of the type I continue to document and sound the alerts on throughout this blog’s history — at least one U.S. agency (HHS/CDC) and — who else?  the State of California (by Executive Order 2010) all united for a cause whose name seems to have only originated in 2006! The US is also being used as a major financial base to impose/implement this on other countries as well as our own selves, which again gets again down to our own tax base supporting the same.

So, the “half-parent” post to this one (I say “half-parent” because it was only part of the above post, and despite the move, is still about half (the bottom half) of this post too)…is:

Smoking Cessation/Tobacco Control Litigation I See Is By Design Guaranteed, (Like Domestic Violence Prevention and Services) To Continue Incessantly. Meanwhile, a Wide Swath of Northern California Is Smoke-Filled and Lit Up, But Not by Tobacco. (October Local News and Blog Updates) (case-sensitive short-link ending “-7Lp”) published Oct. 20, 2017.

The concepts in the recent (10/24/17) “HiAP” post belong alongside this one too: we are talking about setting global health policies, including those impacting federal agency activity (which is determined in part by Congress, but Congress is also influenced, as I continue to say, by the private sector, both for-profit and nonprofit — as ever) from afar, that is, through global and internationally connected regional governments and related, networking NGOs.

Preparation for this way of running things of course requires restructuring business and management education (schools, academia), which apparently is where the thought leadership by the Academy for Business In Society comes in as a platform from which to proselytize, help organize, and of course advertise the transformation/s.

This time I wrote the post before the title, but the title still came out long and sarcastic—

“Health as an Asset” “Thought Leadership” and the Chatham House Rule:** A Section Unearthed from My “Smoking Control/Tobacco Litigation” Post and Reposted Here, in light of Current Congressional Events, and in light of Senator Flake’s (2014) Commentary Before the CFR citing to 9/11 and the Iraq War Commended (?) for Unifying the United States. [case-sensitive short-link ending “-7QH.”  Re-posted  (bottom half) and written (top half) Oct. 25-26, 2017].[Published Oct. 26, 2017]

**Terms taken from 2010-2011 Conferences Among ABIS* (the Academy of Business In Society), RUTGERS (“The State University of New Jersey”), and the Johnson & Johnson Corporate Citizenship Trust.

“Minor details” The only home (USA) base in that list (despite Johnson & Johnson HQ being in NJ, its “Corporate Citizenship” trust formed in 2007 isn’t a U.S. entity and in fact is focused on the “EMEA” region: Europe, the Middle East and Africa)## would then be Rutgers, the public-supported “State University of New Jersey.”

The NJ state university system has other campuses and colleges.  This one, in Newark (commuting distance to NYC) is just the most famous one. To show that the J&J CCT is as I said, from its website (top, and bottom/footer info) we can see that it’s about 10 years old, a slight reminder who J&J is, if this is needed, and (from the footer) that while its registered HQ is in Belgium (not “Brussels” that I can see), it is registered as a Scottish company, putting it firmly in the UK, not in the EU or the USA

## The Johnson & Johnson Corporate Citizenship Trust (Trust) was founded in 2007 as a registered charity and a company limited by guarantee. The Trust is funded by the J&J Family of Companies through J&J Global Community Impact and J&J Operating Companies in EMEA.  {{stands for “Europe, Middle-East & Africa”}}

Operational structure and management
— The Trust is managed by a Board of Directors consisting of 14 senior J&J leaders across the Pharmaceutical, Consumer, Medical Devices and Global Supply businesses in the EMEA region. (etc., there are three more bullets)

*(the Academy of Business In Societya global network of over 100 companies and academic institutions whose expertise, commitment and resources are leveraged to invest in a more sustainable future for business in society. ABIS enables informed decision-making on business in society issues through collaborative research, education, thought leadership, policy insights and business acumen.

“Thought leadership” — I told you so!

“are leveraged” The main verb of the leading ABIS statement is in the passive tense, leaving it open to speculation by whom they are leveraged while emphasizing scope and respectability of the network.  Question:  Who is leveraging it for the noble cause? Why not just say it up front?

ABIS Image #2 showing some of the organization’s purposes, and delineating four kinds of Projects: EU&UN sponsored (sky blue) | ABIS (red) | Corp. (purple) | Academic (orange)

Answer:  Apparently, the EU and the UN, that is to say, briefly, one regional federated government (which the UK recently voted to exit — remember “Brexit”??) and (if the UN is an “NGO”) a prominent post-World War II NGO for the NWO.

As you can see, the ABIS conducts projects, and lists four types of them.  It does not, obviously, list the EU or the UN as one of its members (how could it?), but it lists the EU and the UN first in four groups of sponsors (funders) of its projects, then itself (wonder what those membership fees are….), then “Corporate” then “Academic” although it is itself composed of both corporate and academic members.  (See “Image #2”, above left).

The next image is from ABIS Home page (one of several available on its main url):

Some initial comments on and images from “ABIS.”

I’m commenting on what I saw on-line so the images will illustrate the comments.

Above, those are “ABIS” home page images (not all clearly visible) on a sliding banner with a secondary (subsection at bottom left) sliding banner advertising an upcoming conference, and it being only the 16th shows the organization isn’t that old.  This is where I found the reference to (and conferences about) “Health as an Asset.”  Another project was “Thought Leadership…” and another “Government Relations for the 21st Century: Beyond Lobbying..” (See nearby images).

Nice to know these things are going on internationally on the behalf of all people who are hereby relieved individually (it seems…) from thinking about structuring their own lives, futures, prioritizing their values, etc. without such mediation and (paternalistic) oversight.

Smoking Cessation/Tobacco Control Litigation I See Is By Design Guaranteed, (Like Domestic Violence Prevention and Services) To Continue Incessantly. Meanwhile, a Wide Swath of Northern Cali fornia Is Smoke-Filled and Lit Up, But Not by Tobacco. (October Local News and Blog Updates) (case-sensitive short-link ending “-7Lp”)


Post Technicalities: Tags may be added later. After over a week reviewing and supplementing this post, I’ve decided to “punt” (publish). It MIGHT also be split later, but the sections on exploring national DV networking over the years (from key organizations’ narratives) and “Health as an Asset,” an academy (“ABIS”) globally networking under the “Chatham House Rule” (basically, anonymity)(which brings the topic to the RIIA / Royal Institute of International Affairs in London and its historic intentions, as expressed in its founding documents) towards the bottom, which has a sequel, actually belong together. And this still IS “Domestic Violence Awareness Month,” for what that’s worth, in the USA..so I took a closer look at how certain organizations like to collaborate for a unified voice, and consequences of that collaboration, down the road a few decades….//LGH, Oct. 20, 2017


Or, you could call this “October Local & Posts-in-the-Pipeline Update” which is how it started out, attached to another post started earlier I’d hoped to publish with just a brief update.

As my About Holidays / Personal Backdrop” (posted Oct. 10)** says, I took a brief, about half-month, pause while handling (different kind of writing required) personal things and am now catching up on some of the posts already in the “pipeline” referencing, basically and most recently the themes of (a) Big Tobacco Litigation/Smoking Cessation Control (Public policy) Efforts and (b) The Problems with Problem-solving Courts (“Collaborative Justice”), which includes the development and implementation nationwide of family courts, too.  [** after next few reminder images…]


I wrote about an East Coast/West Coast connection involving one government sub-sector (Administrative Office of the Courts, under the Judicial Council of California, the ruling body of the Judicial Branch in the state) with an improperly named non-entity (it’s not its own legal business OR government entity) — the “Center for Court Innovation” in New York.  You will not find it registered under that name on CharitiesNYS.com or Business Entity search, and so far as I know, it’s not a trade name of some registered entity — because the EIN# associated with it, generally speaking, belongs to a private foundation, “Fund for the City of New York.”

Four logos show sponsorship (not membership) of the Executive Session for State Court Leaders” (click image to enlarge, for fine-print commentary) as I recall. Only 1 logo represents part of government (BJA is under the USDOJ) directly; the other 3 (including Harvard) count as “tax-exempt, privately controlled entities” even though the NCSC Board will have public officials on it. 

I talked about how organizations like the NCSC got involved and discovered yet two more (subsequent to “The California Story” published in 2005) 501©3s promoting the same “collaborative justice” concept, keying off the concept of drug courts:

Fund for City of New York is one-half (the Private) half of the Public/Private (agreement, project, collaboration — whoever it’s defined) comprising the “Center for Court Innovation”. Look at the affiliations of the Board members — former NY Attorney General, Designer of the World Trade Center, Adm. Judge of the City of NY…!

(There’s also a foundation to go with this one).

**(The rest of that title, the same link as just given above: “….Speaking Personally (Personal Backdrop to Post-PRWORA Social Policy towards Women Who ~Just Say No!~ to Abuse and Proceed in Misplaced Belief They can actually Exit it) [started Sept. 18, Publ. Oct. 9, 2017, see also Collaborative Justice post/page].”(ends “-7AD”)

The other “Collaborative Justice” non-profit showing clear judicial membership and sponsorship, as well as an MSW involved in “Children and Family Futures.”  I won’t say more on that in this post, just pointing out that the process seems never-ending:

CCJCF-related, image series labeled: “Search for CCJCF President turned up EARLY Annual Rpt (Final Draft) WITH EIN# attached and its Significant Others (Judge Lynn Duryees, Peggy Hora)”

[Image may be added here post-publication, can’t locate a certain annotated one just now. It may be on the bottom of the related page]

One post in the pipeline taken from part (b) above again (“Governance, the Final Frontier,” now in draft, full title further below) reminded me of how early (how long ago) I’d realized that the “powers that be” within the domestic violence field obtained, and maintained, control over the field with an agenda to “therapize” the nation’s language of crime and consequences under the health, social science, and behavioral modification treatment [“therapeutic jurisprudence” and other concepts] paradigm — while still claiming to be tough on crime and domestic violence. And that one of the ways of doing this to mimic popular, grassroots demand from multiple seemingly diverse platforms (organizations) was having already-established tax-exempt foundations first internally sponsor projects, then spin off the projects off into more 501©3s (nonprofits) which, while the names may be new, the world view, personnel, response to the problems and practice of letting philanthropists run government or organize with intent to run it, is not. In other words, by setting up interconnected nonprofits collectively run by people of, except perhaps subject/topic focus area, the same general persuasion, having been so persuaded possibly in part because alternate viewpoints or alternate solutions to the problem were out-funded, and out-maneuvered.    

[Phrases above in this color were added long after the original paragraph; it this is too much overexplaining, read around them.]


Both this post and the one whose title shows next, linked from the “Collaborative Justice/Problem-solving Courts” page, should be published today, Oct. 20, 2017, or within 48 hours of each other.  (That “today” date kept getting moved back as I continued adding to the top part of this post!) The one you’re reading now will be published first.

I’ll repeat that link near the bottom of this post.


VERY early on, assumptions about WHICH are the KEY POINTS IN (foundational to) any new field or regime (for the DV field, that treatments and interventions, such as batterers’ intervention, or supervised visitation, mandatory mediation, parent education, etc.) become foundational, basic for that new field or regime’s claims to even BEING a field of practice or a new profession or area of professional practice (example:  “fatherhood” or “domestic violence PREVENTION”). Assumptions and omissions of relevant information which might speak against that selection of points get “baked-into the infrastructure and system” (including to its literature and downloadable curricula, webinars, etc.) as entrenched positions, and continually a part of whatever solution is chosen.

This proprietary, linguistic control makes later protest by people harmed by such policies, even if among the classes the policies are allegedly representing in the first place — for example, survivors of domestic violence, and/or child abuse who, with full information up front might have made different choices in picking their court battles, or how and how hard to fight back once they were dragged into one — an even heavier burden and uphill battle.  The public is fed information leading (or at least encouraging) readers/viewers to believe (until personally involved) that “the experts are on it,” so where there’s evidence to the contrary, maybe it was just the family’s problem, or one of the family members.’  Or a rogue judge, or a local problem..

After all, don’t we hear about domestic violence on TV shows, sometimes in a movie, in ads, and after headlines involving recent roadkill, perhaps from experts on one of the major organizations’ comments?

A SHORT SECTION ON THIS, FOLLOWED BY MORE ON THE NETWORKS:

Who can even find the long-standing/oft-quoted SF Domestic Violence Consortium?  What does its spokesperson do for a living? Take tax-free donations (It’s not an incorporated entity, but its “Executive Director” maintains apparently a speed-dial on some local news media with each new domestic violence vitality — year after year — or otherwise disaster that has potential for making national news too.

Looking at this one, I also took a quick re-view of California’s registered and still active known major DV organizations, including (but not posted here) the “NNEDV.”  I also added a section in which one of the networked entities did us (belatedly) a courtesy summary of the networks themselves, nationally, that is. Recommendation?  Pretend this is a conversation, and just deal with its about 15,000 words as they come up.  When you see a new section coming up, so be it, and remember that some of the material that inspired a post may (in my writing style) still end up closer to the bottom, while what’s in between is, to say the least, “illuminating.”….
