False Accusations

Woman stripped of son’s custody wins $3 million from LA County – Daily News

LOS ANGELES — A woman stripped of the custody of her son amid allegedly false accusations of neglect by children’s social workers who worked for Los Angeles County was denied punitive damages today, but will still receive more then $3 million in compensatory damages.

A Los Angeles Superior Court jury deliberated for about an hour before deciding against assessing punitive damages against social workers Kimberly Rogers and Susan Pender in a lawsuit filed by Rafaelina Duval.

The same panel on Thursday awarded Duval $2.94 million, plus another $165,000 after finding in a separate verdict that she was the victim of discrimination.

Duval alleged that her child, identified in her court papers only as R.D., was taken from her without a warrant in 2010, even though no emergency existed. The jury also found that social workers Pender and Rogers acted with malice toward Duval, triggering the second phase to determine whether either of them should have to pay punitive damages.

The jury found that the county Department of Children and Family Services had “an official custom and/or practice of seizing children from their parents without a warrant” and failed “to enact an official policy or procedure when it should have done so.”

Asked after the verdicts whether she was pleased with the outcome of the case, Duval replied, “Yes and no. Yes, because they have been held accountable, but no, because I still don’t have custody of my child.”

Duval, 41, said she will continue to fight to bring her son home and to advocate for changes in the DCFS so the same thing does not happen to others in her situation.

Attorney Shawn McMillan, on behalf of Duval, told jurors that his client begged the social workers not to take her child, but her plea “fell on deaf ears.”

“Don’t give them more mercy than they gave her,” McMillan said in urging that punitive damages be assessed.

When CPS Knocks At Your Door

When CPS knocks at your door, videotape everything! When CPS knocks at your door, call all of your friends and family to come witness.

CPS is becoming a term which is synonymous child-sex-trafficking, abduction and organized criminal activity. Former Georgia State Senator, Nancy Schaefer, was exposing much of this when she was “suicided”.

The CPS game is the dirtiest game in town. The organization represents the war on families being perpetrated by the globalist desire to attack our culture through the destruction of our families.

Many of the details of this rogue organization, which terrorizes thousands of families in all 50 states, is contained in the following video.

DIdn’t You Know? Government Is Way Smarter Than Parents!

The power to raise our children has been usurped by our schools, our healthcare system, our churches and our courts.  A great website to learn more about these issues is Parentalrights.org  

The article below discusses how close we are to being completely removed from the picture if we don’t stand up to this insidious plot to destroy the family! Family is the foundation of strength and stability which is exactly what our government does not want! Control is much easier if society is weakened.

Nazi Eugenics Policies Are Sweeping the Country: Oregon’s Final Solution

The final solution for Oregon’s Department of Human Services.

Yesterday, I covered the fact that a judge in Tennessee is sterilizing prisoners in exchange for knocking 30 days off of their sentence. The rationale comes straight out of the Nazi playbook in which the state will decide who breeds and who does not.

If this were the only Nazi Master Race/Eugenics program sweeping America, this article might be considered to be on the hysterical side. However, the state of Oregon is beta testing euthanasia for the terminally ill as well as the mentally ill. Oregon is also kidnapping children from parents who they claim not smart enough to raise their children. Yet, in these cases, the state has no identifiable criteria and no reports of child abuse of neglect. We are even witnessing the microchipping of employees by an American corporation. This is a brand of justice that can best be described as “Just us”.

Tennessee judge offers inmates 30 days off sentence if they get sterilized

July 21 (UPI) — Prisoners at a small county jail in Tennessee are being given an opportunity to get 30 days removed from their sentence — if they agree to be sterilized.

Sam Benningfield, the only judge in White County, Tenn., introduced the program as a way to prevent repeat drug offenders and other criminals to abstain from having children.

“I understand it won’t be entirely successful, but if you reach two or three people, maybe that’s two or three kids not being born under the influence of drugs. I see it as a win-win,” he told News Channel 5.

What a great idea! Let’s have the State decide who can and can’t reproduce! Judges are already playing God by deciding who can and can’t parent their children and what’s in the “best interest” of children.

Judge Benningfield developed the program which is enforceable from the bench, and was given approval by the Tennessee Dept. of Health. This is Nazi style eugenics people!

At least the White County District Attorney, Bryant Dunaway, isn’t buying into it and has ordered his assistant DA’s not to enter into any agreements related to this insane program. The ACLU is also opposed to this program and issued a statement that, “legally pressured contraception and sterilization is “unconstitutional” and a violation of basic individual rights.”

This battle, like every battle we are facing will only be won in the court of public opinion!

One More Way for Government to Get the Kids

New Ontario Law Allows Gov’t To Steal Kids From Parents Who Oppose “Gender Identity”

By Rachel Blevins

Ontario has just set a startling precedent with the passage of a new law that could lead to the government seizing children from parents who oppose the “Gender Identity” agenda.

Bill 89, the 2017 Children, Youth and Family Services Act, passed by a vote of 63-23 on June 1. The new law will have jurisdiction over child protective services, and adoption and foster care services.

One of the most notable parts of the bill is that when it comes to the state’s process for deciding which home a child should live in, it takes out the consideration of “the religious faith in which the child is being raised,” and replaces it with the child’s “gender identity” or “gender expression.”

Differences include: the current Act includes the child’s cultural background in this list while the new Act Chil the child’s cultural and linguistic heritage; the current Act includes the religious faith in which the child is being raised while the new Act includes the child’s race, ancestry, place of origin, color, ethnic origin, citizenship, family diversity, disability, creed, sex, sexual orientation, gender identity and gender expression.

Jack Fonseca, senior political strategist for Campaign Life Coalition, warned that the new law does not just affect parents who are facing the risk of having their children seized by the state, it also affects parents who are looking to adopt.

“With the passage of Bill 89, we’ve entered an era of totalitarian power by the state, such as never witnessed before in Canada’s history,” Fonseca said. “Make no mistake, Bill 89 is a grave threat to Christians and all people of faith who have children, or who hope to grow their family through adoption.”

Another troubling aspect in the new Ontario law can be found in what the government determines to be the “least disruptive course of action.” With Bill 89, it argues for the use of “prevention services, early intervention services and community support services.”

The least disruptive course of action that is available and is appropriate in a particular case to help a child, including the provision of prevention services, early intervention services and community support services, should be considered.

In a press release on the new law, the Ministry of Children and Youth Services described the legislation as helping “children and youth across the province thrive and reach their full potential by strengthening and modernizing child, youth and family services.” It noted that the law will put “a greater focus on early intervention, to help prevent children and families from reaching crisis situations at home.”

John Sikkema, a lawyer with the Association for Reformed Political Action in Canada, criticized the bill’s clause, and said that it could do more harm than good to a child when applied.

“You can imagine a situation where, say, a child’s teacher suspects that a child is gender questioning or something and they’re not being supported in that,” Sikkema said, noting that the teacher would then “actually have a duty to report certain things to a Children’s Aid Society who would look into it further.”

As The Free Thought Project has reported on multiple occasions, the United States has its own share of problems with Child Protective Services seizing children from families whose beliefs don’t align with the state.

However, the idea of basing a child’s safety in a home off of his/her “gender identity” sets a troubling precedent in the province of Ontario, and takes legal government invasion in the home to a new level.

Erasing Parents

MN Mom Denied Parental Rights Regarding Transgender Son

A district court judge dismissed the case but affirmed that the teenager was never emancipated.

MINNEAPOLIS – A Minnesota mother who was denied parental rights over her male to female transgender son’s medical and education decisions has lost her court case at the district level.

Anmarie Calgaro filed suit against her son, St. Louis County, Fairview Health Services, Park Nicollet Health Services, and the St. Louis County School District. She claimed that her Fourteenth Amendment due process rights were violated by the above organizations as they determined her son, referred to as E.J.K. in court documents, was emancipated, and withheld E.J.K.’s records from her.

U.S. District Court Judge Paul Magnuson took issue with that wording, saying that the organizations did not determine E.J.K. to be emancipated, as only a court order can do that. While Magnuson stated numerous times in his decision that E.J.K. was in fact not emancipated and that “Calgaro’s parental rights over E.J.K. remain intact.”

“The judge here makes some very strange and contradictory statements,” Julie Quist, Chairman of the Board of the Child Protection League told Alpha News. “On the one hand he says that EJK is not emancipates because there’s been no court action. He specifically says that the mother’s parental rights ‘remain intact’ and so therefore the defendants did not terminate her parental rights.”

However, Magnuson also ruled that Calgaro’s claims against the defendants were meritless, as she did not allege a specific execution of a policy by the School Board or County caused the deprivation of Calgaro’s parental rights. With regards to Fairview and Park Nicollet, Magnuson stated that because they are private entities and they did not act in collusion with the state, they cannot be held accountable.

“It’s a bizarre statement,” Quist said. “Obviously she is not being acquitted her parental rights, but somehow nobody has violated anything.”

“We’re going to appeal. Our principle concern is the law in this area is confused,” Erick Kaardal, Calgaro’s attorney, told Alpha News. “That the state of Minnesota hasn’t addressed emancipation procedures in a way that protects parental rights is unfortunate. As a consequence the court has to step up and tell us what the law is.”

Kaardal said that the court failed to do so in this decision.

E.J.K. was under the sole custody of Calgaro, but had been living outside of Calgaro’s house for some time, first with his biological father, then with family and friends, and currently by himself.

In June 2015 E.J.K.  in court documents, consulted with a lawyer with Mid-Minnesota Legal Aid who provided him with a letter concluding E.J.K. was legally emancipated under Minnesota law.

“Its really sad because parental rights are really important,” Kaardal said. “In other issues like paternity, marriage dissolution, they get notice and opportunity to respond.”

Calgaro never had a chance to respond. As her son began gender transition services at Fairview and Park Nicollet she was not notified of any procedures, and her request to view her son’s medical records was denied. Similarly, as E.J.K. began to explore post-secondary education options, Calgaro’s request to view educational records was turned down by the St. Louis County School District.

“My client has always taken the position that she wants a say, she’s not necessarily opposed to the transgendering medical services but she wants a say,” Kaardal said of Calgaro.

“This is not an issue primarily about transgenderism at all. This ruling is about the rights of parents to protect and guide their children,” Quist said. “Parents are a protection. When the state gets in and destroys that protection it leaves children at the mercy of people who can and will manipulate them.”

E.J.K. turns 18 in a few months, which would render the actionable part of the case moot. Kaardal said that his client still plans to appeal, citing Roe vs. Wade as an example of the capable-of-repetition doctrine. The woman in the Roe case had already given birth to her child, but the court case was allowed as future situations of similar legal principles were likely to occur for other women. Kaardal thinks this case could be used to decide parental rights in future cases.
