Are There Any Institutions We Can Trust?

“These crimes were unimaginable, and that they could’ve been countenanced and enabled by such an iconic institution, it gave us so much energy to pursue the story and get the story and make it public.” ~Walter Robinson, NPR, October 2015

“Spotlight” Movie Review

ID-10093828

Image by Stuart Miles @ FreeDigitalPhotos.net

I recently went to the film “Spotlight” which portrays the Boston Globe’s investigation and coverage of the Catholic Church sex abuse scandal. Their reporting and revelations won them the 2003 Pulitzer Prize and prompted admissions of similar abuse from victims around the world.

I assumed that this film wouldn’t get a lot of publicity as it exposes the cover-up of the pedophile priests by the court system, attorneys, media execs and the church; however, it just got 6 Oscar nominations.

Of course I had to research further to figure out the agenda behind wanting this movie to be seen by mainstream audiences.

What I discovered is that ‘Spotlight’ is more than likely being used as a propaganda piece to condition Americans into believing that the scandal is fully in the past and to forget the gravity of the Vatican crimes against humanity. The film shifts the focus away from the church and onto the feel good determination and heroism of the Boston Globe’s investigative journalists.

Many people are still in the dark that mainstream media is often biased and misleading and is used to influence the population toward an agenda set by “The Powers that Be”.

6 Corporations control 90% Of The Media in North America. It’s also rumored that the Vatican owns all news networks.

Another interesting find:
blockquotes-1The mainstream media won't tell you this, but the Boston Globe's reporting routinely 
minimized the critical role that secular psychologists played in the entire Catholic Church abuse
scandal. Time after time, trained "expert" psychologists around the country repeatedly insisted
to Church leaders that abusive priests were fit to return to ministry after receiving "treatment"under  their care. 

Indeed, one of the leading experts in the country recommended to the Archdiocese of Boston in 
both 1989 and 1990 that – despite Geoghan's two-decade record of abuse – it was both "reasonable and    therapeutic" to return Geoghan to active pastoral ministry including work "with children".

This is much like the Family Court System which is designed to cover-up domestic violence and child abuse by changing the language, “It’s just a divorce and custody dispute” vs.”domestic violence and abuse”, which in the past would have been addressed in the criminal courts. In this system, parents are forced to work it out by bringing the mental health component into the court system via custody evaluators, parenting consultants, guardians-ad-litem, supervised visitation, foster care, and reunification therapy to name just a few. How is someone supposed figure out how to parent with someone that’s assaulting them? This is about control and profit by forcing consumption of therapeutic services designed to keep families stuck in the procedural confusion of the courts, while funneling private and tax payer dollars through court connected programs and corporate-collaborator government officials.

Excerpts from: Before It’s News “The 3 City States that Control the Whole World”  

City of London – FINANCE                    Vatican City – RELIGION                                 Washington DC – MILITARY

The flag in Washington’s District of Columbia has 3 red stars, each symbolizing a city state within the three city empire. The three city empire consists of Washington D.C., London, and Vatican City. London is the corporate center of the three city states and controls the world economically. Washington’s District of Columbia city state is in charge of the military, and the Vatican offers spiritual guidance. The constitution of the district of Columbia operates under a tyrannical roman law known as lex fori, which in no way resembles the U.S. constitution.

The three sovereign, corporate “city states” are not part of the countries they are located in. They have their own laws, and identities, as indicated by their respective flags that clearly control the whole world.

Quotes from “Spotlight”

Michael Rezendes: This is not just Boston. This is the whole country, the whole world. They knew and they let it happen! It could’ve been you, it could’ve been me, it could’ve been any of us.

Marty Baron: The Boston priests molested kids in six different parishes over the last 30 years. The church found out about it and did nothing. 

Mitchell Garabedian: So, I pull out the 14 most-damning docs and I attach them to my motion and they prove everything, everything, about the church, about the bishops, about law.

Michael Rezendez: And it’s all public cause your motion to oppose Rogers motion is public.

Mitchell Garabedian: Yeah, exactly, now you’re paying attention.

Michael RezendesSo I could just walk into that courthouse right now and get those documents?
Mitchell Garabedian: No, you cannot, because the documents are not there.
Michael Rezendes: But you just said they’re public.
Mitchell Garabedian: I know I did but this is Boston and the church does not want them to be found so they are not there.
Michael Rezendes: Mitch, are you telling me that the Catholic Church removed legal documents from that courthouse?

Mitchell Garabedian: Look, I’m not crazy. I’m not paranoid. I’m experienced. Check the docket. You’ll see. They control everything.

 

Walter ‘Robby Robinson: We got two stories here: a story about degenerate clergy, and a story about a bunch

of lawyers turning child abuse into a cottage industry. Which story do you want us to write? Because we’re writing one of them.

 

 Mitchell Garabedian: “If it take a village to raise a child, it takes a village to abuse them.”

Former St. Paul archbishop Nienstedt resigns Michigan post

Former Twin Cities archbishop’s arrival drew strong protests.
 By Star Tribune

Former St. Paul and Minneapolis Archbishop John Nienstedt quit a temporary post at a Michigan church Thursday, following a wave of protests from Catholic parents and abuse victim advocates.

Michigan residents opposing Nienstedt’s Jan. 6 assignment at St. Philip Catholic Church had bombarded their diocese and the media, and even pulled tuition support for a Catholic school associated with the church.

“I was surprised it took an outcry for them [church leaders] to make the right decisions,” said Samantha Pearl, a parent at St. Philip who was an outspoken critic of Nienstedt’s move to her parish. “I’m relieved.”

Advocates for clergy abuse victims also were taken aback by the swift departure of St. Paul’s former archbishop, who was scheduled to help out at the Battle Creek church for six months.

“This is a first in my lifetime: A grass-roots effort drove this man out of town,” said Bill McAlary, a Michigan leader of Survivors Network of Those Abused by Priests (SNAP). “It shows that if the people take action, we can clean up this mess.”

The bottom line is that there are still many people that are resistant to the higher truth that our institutions have been hijacked by fundamentally immoral thugs! People don’t want to admit that there is a systemic abuse of entrusted power for private gain and that our government does not keep us safe. This denial is how entire communities become complicit in allowing egregious crimes against humanity. When things are not going well, until you get the truth out on the table, no matter how ugly, you are not in a position to deal with it.  Bob Seelert, Chairman of Saatchi & Saatchi Worldwide (New York) 

“One of the saddest lessons of history is this: If we’ve been bamboozled long enough, we tend to reject any evidence of the bamboozle. We’re no longer interested in finding out the truth. The bamboozle has captured us. It’s simply too painful to acknowledge, even to ourselves, that we’ve been taken. Once you give a charlatan power over you, you almost never get it back.”

2016 More Business As Usual in MN? (Criminalizing, Terrorizing, Jailing Mothers)

Let’s Get Honest! Blog

I’ve been aware of an ongoing, escalating situation in Dakota County, Minnesota, involving a jailed mother facing multiple felony charges, a no doubt jubilant father undergoing reunification with his runaway teen aged daughters,  three (male) journalists who helped keep the police on-target, and pending felony charges for three others (one-and-a-half married couples) who allegedly helped with parental interference resulting from a custody order issued in the family court.

This mother of five became a fugitive long before she was accused of felony parental interference.  See news reports (some, below), and footnote, a  3/14/2013 post from the blog Carver County Corruption at the bottom of this post. The post dates to about a month before the girls ran away. It names involved professionals, but to those who pay attention, it also shows involved systems (such as child support) and the existence of family wealth as an incentive to “churn the case.”

I want to call attention to what this, including this case, means for women (particularly mothers) and will continue to mean regardless of who (Democrat or Republican) is elected next President of the USA.

I want to talk about the off-stage actors, the executive producers, involved in any and all custody disputes in America.  I want to talk about the behind-the-curtain scripts which are running along the same lines throughout the country.

A business model is a business model.  Jailed mothers, righteously-indignant fathers supported by journalists, and runaway/reunified teenagers is not about law, justice, or representative government gone awry, gone “rogue.”  It’s about the same government having been outsourced and outflanked by the for-profit/not-for-profit [tax-exempt, privately controlled] corporate wealth working through (and with) public institutions. It’s also about what happens when the population goes to sleep on the above; on public/private coordinated operations which cross multiple jurisdictions.

Did I mention, it’s about moving the money, local, intermediate, inter/national?

This case, and that it’s possible in this country, is a power-play by those involved, which always comes with a “spin” to justify the excess force inflicted.  These outrageous custody cases, decade after decade, are therefore predictable outcomes of the larger business model in place, particularly but not only in the family court venues.

Disclaimers, and my interest: I am not an involved party, have not personally met any of the involved parties (I live in California, they’re in Minnesota) but I have had extended ongoing phone or email contact (no personal) with one of the involved parties (Ms. Evavold) and occasionally with some of the others, though not recently, prior to the discovery of the runaway children this past season.  My contact resulted originally from submitting comments over time on one of the related blogs. So I am vicariously aware of the situation over time.

I am hardly the best, or most immediate source of information on this case, but I do empathize as a mother with the gauntlets to be run, and I (particularly through this blog) am a good source of alternate information on the model court systems being set up to facilitate these fiascoes.  I also do not know anyone else who has focused on specific organizations based in Minnesota influencing the handling of domestic violence case, influencing custody-decision-making, and training judges and lawyers how to view custody disputes when domestic violence has occurred, other than those organizations themselves, who continue to promote their nationalized model decision-making processes.

What ‘Making a Murderer’ Lawyer Wants Viewers to Learn From Doc

“[Citizens] decide whether to reelect a prosecutor,” defense attorney Jerry Buting says. “They should know what goes on in the courts”
 By January 20, 2016


Although Making a Murderer is in many ways a true-crime show, the Netflix docuseries ultimately says more about the U.S. justice system than about any one person’s case. And if there’s one thing Jerry Buting, one of the defense attorneys who represented Steven Avery, wants viewers to consider while watching the show, it’s the power they have over the legal system.

N.Y. woman faces jail for calling former in-law ‘stupid’ in Facebook post

A US woman is facing a one-year prison sentence for violating a protection order by tagging victims in a Facebook post and making derogatory comments about them.

Despite being divorced from her ex-husband Rafael Calderon and issued with a protection order preventing her from contacting her ex-husband or his family, Maria Gonzalez of New York decided to tag her former sister-in-law Maribel Calderon in a Facebook post and call her ‘stupid’, according to the New York Law Journal.

Gonzalez also tagged Calderon in another post saying: “You and your family are sad … You guys have to come stronger than that!! I’m way over you guys but I guess not in ya agenda.”

Protection orders, also known as restraining orders, are court-issued orders that require one person (the one being restrained) to stay away from the person requiring protection, and this means specifically that the restrained person is not to hurt, threaten or communicate with the protected person at all.

You might think it should be obvious that “no communication” would include SMS text messages, phone calls, emails, IM chat messages and any form of contact through social media networks, but Gonzalez argued in court that the protection order “did not specifically prohibit [her] from Facebook communication” with her ex-husband’s family.

Unfortunately for Gonzalez, who was charged with second-degree criminal contempt, Acting Westchester County Supreme Court Justice Susan Capeci disagreed. “The allegations that she contacted the victim by tagging her in a Facebook posting which the victim was notified of is thus sufficient for pleading purposes to establish a violation of the order of protection,” Capeci wrote in the decision The People v. Gonzalez, 15-6081M, upholding the charges.

Capeci stated in her ruling that Facebook is considered to be a viable form of communication, citing a 2014 decision made by the New York Court of Appeals in the case of People v Horton. In that case, the judge presiding ruled that Facebook messages are equivalent to emails, after a defendant was found guilty of witness tampering by trying to “out” a confidential informant on Facebook and then sending her Facebook messages with threats intended to induce her not to testify against the defendant.

Gonzalez’ court-appointed lawyer Kim Frohlinger told the New York Post that she would not be appealing the ruling.

Although such a case hasn’t surfaced in the UK yet, it would be advisable for everyone to note that any form of digital messaging or communication over social media does in fact count as a form of communication, regardless of whether the message is sent privately or publicly.
