Jailed for Baptizing Daughter

Published on Feb 17, 2018   SUBSCRIBE 1.1K

CHARLOTTE, N.C. – A Charlotte woman reported to jail Friday morning after she baptized her daughter.

The court case goes back a couple of years to when Kendra Stocks and Paul Schaaf were in a custody battle over their daughter. According to court documents, the two could never agree to the terms of their daughter’s baptism.

“It’s just very sad. It’s all just a very sad situation,” Stocks told Channel 9.

Court records said Schaaf is a practicing Catholic who attends Mass every week, and that ultimately the court granted him final decision-making authority on all legal custody decisions, including decisions concerning religion

Both parents were warned that they could go to jail if they ignored the warning. But the next day, Stocks went out and baptized her daughter, according to court documents.

Schaaf found out about the baptism on Facebook, documents showed.

The court documents stated that “the mother has acted selfishly by depriving the father of the ability to be present at an event that was extraordinarily important to him.”

The judge found Stocks in contempt of court and sentenced her to seven days in jail.

Channel 9 had the only camera at the jail as Stocks, a mother of two, turned herself in.

“I’ll get through it and hopefully come out a better person,” Stocks told Channel 9.

n contempt cases, a judge can order someone detained if they believe someone is improperly challenging or ignoring the court’s authority. Violators can be fined, jailed, or both.

Channel 9 tried to speak with Judge Sean Smith about his ruling, but were told that because the child is under 18, it’s still a pending case and he can’t comment.

Stocks was supported by a couple of friends and her mother. They shared an emotional embrace before Stocks was processed.

“Her father and I both agreed on baptizing her. I regret that he wasn’t part of it, but I don’t regret we’re raising her in the Catholic faith, which is what we both wanted,” Stocks said.

Stocks was searched by a female deputy and handcuffed, and her mother cried as she walked out of the jail.

“She’s wonderful,” said Carol Stocks, Kendra Stocks mother. “They play all the time. She teaches them things. She’s an incredible loving mother.”

I am very proud of this woman for doing the right thing by her daughter. Seemingly, the judge in question has never heard of the concept of ‘ judicial restraint ‘. Or the ‘ Establishment Clause ‘. Or civil disobedience . Christians need to get vastly more aggressive in defending their faith. This is precisely what Jefferson was talking about in his famous letter ‘ Separation Of Church & State ‘, Forbidding the State from infringing upon the realm of the Church.

A New York mother who had not seen her son in years found out he was in danger at Stoneman Douglas High School when he sent her a text message during the standoff.

Julie Goffstein received this text message from her 15-year-old son while Nikolas Cruz was in the middle of his rampage:

“Hey mommy, I wanted to say hi, I wanted to talk now because there is a school shooter on my campus and we are locked down.”

“I’m safe in a closet,” her son said later, in texts reviewed by The Daily Caller. “I’m perfectly calm, to be honest this isn’t the scariest event in my life.”

Until this text message, Goffstein did not even know what high school he was attending because a Hamilton County, Ohio court had forbidden her from having any contact with her four youngest of six children for approximately 1,000 days.

Group stages protest at Strickland Youth Center

 A group of parents staged a protest in front of Strickland Youth Center Thursday afternoon.

They said they were there to voice concerns about a Mobile County Juvenile Court judge. Parents said they have had problems with custody cases involving Judge George Brown.

Dana Williams organized the demonstration after she claims her twin girls were wrongfully taken away from her.


Defendants allege bias against single mothers in child custody cases

“(EDITOR’S NOTE: This is the first of two parts about citizen’s accusations of misconduct and favoritism aimed at Strickland Youth Center Judge George Brown.)” By Arthur L. Mack For the Beacon

Protestors in Mobile, Alabama

“Beacon photo by Arthur L. Mack | Dana Williams, left, leads a group of protesters outside Government Plaza in Mobile last week. The former child welfare worker with the Mobile County Department of Human Resources said she was jailed for 28 days after failing to be notified by District Court Judge George Brown of a custody hearing for her daughters.Williams alleges Brown continually shows bias against single women in his courtroom, and has awarded custody to unfit fathers … many of whom are estranged from their children.”

A Mobile mother is spearheading the fight against parental rights being violated by a local judge and hoping to bring awareness about unfair rulings against single mothers. “We’re hoping to show that this common practice is not right,” said Dana Williams, who had her 11-year-old twin daughters taken away from her because she allegedly failed to attend a custody hearing in September of 2017. “It’s affecting our children, it’s affecting our lives, and somebody has to stand up.”


Judges are awarding custody to unfit fathers because they are incentivized to do so. Family Courts are “government” and as such are supported by public funding. A multibillion dollar enterprise has been created by the family court divorce, domestic abuse and child abuse industries. 

Currently, non-profit and for profit advocacy groups nationwide are obtaining court connected federal funding through the Dept. of Health and Human Services and the DOJ to influence custody cases. Very few people are making the connection between federal policy, private nonprofit providers, and the local courthouse.

Image result for federal fatherhood initiative

The Family Law System was set up to perpetuate conflict for profit. The system has  been subject to influence by federal funding to the states to promote marriage and fatherhood through a grant series supporting the setup of: Mediation, Parent Education, Supervised Visitation, Counseling for Parents, etc. It’s about fraud and kickbacks.  PERIOD.

Many federal departments have initiatives and programs supporting responsible fatherhood and fathers in the community.  Below are just some of the programs developed for fathers.

Numerous reports have identified bias against women and corruption in family courts across the country. In bizarre and illegal rulings, family court judges ignore or deliberately suppress evidence of male perpetrated family violence and child molest. Fathers who are batterers and sex offenders are routinely granted visitation and custody, while mothers and children trying to escape abuse are punished through financial sanctions, loss of custody, supervised visitation, jail and institutionalization.

Very occasionally, men reporting abuse of their children have also been targeted for retaliation through family court.  However, the systematic mishandling of domestic violence and child molest cases as “custody disputes”  is based in a financial corruption scheme that calls for diverting grant program funding through “high conflict” cases, in the guise of promoting “fatherhood” and “shared parenting” post-divorce.

Rather than assisting men become responsible parents, “Responsible Fatherhood”, “Access to Visitation Enforcement” (supervised visitation for noncustodial parents), “Child Support Enforcement” and similar federal programs perpetuate abuse of women and children through the legal system. Abusive men striving to maintain control over their victims are provided an array of benefits, not only to get custody and get out of paying child support, but to terrorize the mothers of their children and society in general.  Government programs are not producing responsible fathers, but motherless children, in order to advance the agenda of the so-called “fathers’ rights” movement.


“Just Us” System



“When you do harm to another, let no man or woman, regardless of class or status, be beyond the law. If the law harms the innocent, the law should rightfully show compassion for it’s error and make right its wrong. End of story.” This story is about the State’s inconsideration and imposition upon the Citizens in regard to their own children, and the Parental Rights which are the property of them who borne them. For the State to take away a child, undue of any wrongdoing of the Parent, is nothing shy of a rogue fanatically inconsiderate “Just-Us” System.

Watch the movie. Imagine it were you in Mr. Kinter’s shoes. How would you react? What would you do if your flesh and blood immediate family is suddenly restricted…not for a day or a week…..not for three or nine months; but for THREE + years!
The clincher?
No …Just …Cause.

Child Predator Services and Foster Care

This is just one example of thousands of unjust CPS abductions that happen all over the nation on a daily basis. Once again, the reason is money. . . lots of money!  Every time CPS seizes a child, it gets money from the federal government and counties can bring in thousands of dollars in excess revenue.

As New York Times best-selling author Dr. Joseph Mercola wrote in 2011:

Child Protective Services | Austin Family Law Attorney[D]id you know that the money funneled to states and child protective services actually encourages them to accuse you of child abuse and even murder, and to take your children, even if you’re not guilty, and even though they have absolutely no proof that you harmed your child?

Horrendous as it sounds, it’s true: child abuse has become a business — an industry of sorts — that actually pays states to legally abduct your children and put them up for adoption! Even more unbelievable is that, instead of pumping the money back into child protective service programs, some states actually are putting it into their general funds to help balance their budgets.

Child Protective Services has a financial incentive to take children into custody and adopt them out rather than return them. Why? They get money from the Federal government for every child in custody, and they get money if the child is adopted. So what do you think they do? For one, they are more likely to take children into custody in the first place. And second, they are more interested in taking children they can easily adopt out.


John Van Doorn

John Van Doorn ran for San Diego Supervisor in 2010. This is an excerpt from his candidate biography “As a tireless advocate for parental and children’s rights, John van Doorn has worked publicly and behind the scenes to challenge the Board of Supervisors to clean up corruption within county agencies that deal with the welfare of our county’s children.

John’s start in advocacy began with the breakup of his marriage in 1999, a time when his children were stripped out of his life after false allegations were made in court by a county social worker. Mr. van Doorn has since prevailed in a number of Superior and Appellate Court actions and presently has an appeal pending before the California Appellate Court which addresses numerous acts of `abuse of discretion’ by a County Court Commissioner. The appeal also takes notice of actions by County Counsel that clearly demonstrate this county’s preference to obstruct legally established rights of San Diego citizens.”

For the Children. @AdoptUsKids @BlogginMamas @AdCouncil # ...Let’s take a closer look at the three sponsors of the “I Support Adoption from Foster Care” ad on the left

U.S. Department of Health and Human Services (CDC, FDA ...


Children's Bureau

U.S. Department of Health and Human Services (CDC, FDA ...

Through the title IV-E Foster Care program, the Children’s Bureau supports states (plus the District of Columbia and Puerto Rico) provide board and care payments for eligible children who are under the supervision of the state and placed in foster family homes or childcare institutions that are safe and licensed. The program is authorized by title IV-E of the Social Security Act, as amended, and implemented under the Code of Federal Regulations (CFR) at 45 CFR parts 1355, 1356, and 1357. The program’s focus is children who are eligible under the former Aid to Families with Dependent Children program and who were removed from their homes as the result of maltreatment, lack of care, or lack of supervision.

AdoptUSKids is a national project that supports child welfare systems and connects children in foster care with families. It is a project of the Children’s Bureau, operated through a cooperative agreement between the Bureau and the Adoption Exchange Association.

About the children

Children and teens enter foster care through no fault of their own, because they have been abused, neglected, or abandoned and are unable to continue living safely with their families. (CPS gets to deem what living “safely” with a family means.)


A private, non-profit organization, the Ad Council focuses on approximately 50 national campaigns at a time, each sponsored by non-profit organizations or federal government agencies.

We work with volunteer talent from leading advertising, media, social and digital communications agencies across the country. Leveraging donated ad space and airtime, we develop integrated public service communications programs to make sure our messages reach the widest audience and have the greatest impact.

In 2015, we secured over $1.6 billion in donated media on behalf of all of our campaigns. This means on average, each campaign received $30 million in donated advertising time and space for the year.

Behind each campaign is an issue expert: A non-profit organization or government agency. They are on the front lines and deal directly with issues our campaigns address.

Adoption from Foster Care  


Since 2004, the Ad Council has partnered with the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services’ Children’s Bureau and AdoptUSKids to encourage the adoption of children from foster care. This national adoption recruitment campaign reassures potential parents by consistently delivering the “you don’t have to be perfect to be a perfect parent” message.

The campaign currently highlights the need for families for teens. Of the 428,000 youths under the age of 18 in the U.S. foster care system,112,000 are currently waiting for adoptive families. 43% of all children available for adoption on AdoptUSKids.org are 15 to 18 years old, yet only 5% of all children adopted in 2015 were between the ages of 15 to 18.

These lighthearted and charming PSAs reassure potential parents that teens in foster care don’t need perfection; they need the love and commitment a permanent family can provide.The PSAs direct audiences to visit AdoptUSKids.org, call 1-888-200-4005 (English), or 1-877-236-7831 (Spanish) to learn more the adoption process.

Fatherhood Involvement (2017)  OVERVIEW

86 percent of dads spend more time with their children today than their own fathers did with them. However, a majority of dad (7 out of 10) also reported that they could use tips on how to be a better parent.

The campaign PSAs encourage dads to recognize the critical role fathers play in their children’s lives through something as simple as a dad joke. The TV spots feature kids re-telling jokes their dad shared with them, highlighting that even the smallest moments fathers spend with their children can have the biggest difference in their children’s lives. All PSAs direct audiences to visit www.fatherhood.gov for parenting tips, fatherhood programs, and other resources. 

Do you really think public service announcements increase fatherhood engagement in their children’s lives if they haven’t been involved before they saw the ad? This really is a network of private associations involved with government in public/private collusion. These associations operate in the private, nonprofit sector with intent to affect the government sector, bypassing normal input from citizens and deteriorating representative government at all levels (federal, state and county). The Ad Council is able to use their extensive advertising budget to sell a government program that appears to be pro-family when the opposite is true.

The Child Support Industry IS a For-Profit Government Fraud

Executive Summary

In late 1997, the federal Office of Child Support Enforcement (OCSE) funded Responsible Fatherhood Demonstration Projects in eight states. All of these programs attempt to improve the  employment and earnings of under- and unemployed noncustodial parents, and to motivate them to become more financially and emotionally involved in the lives of their children. Although the projects share common goals, they do not follow a single format or a specific model of service delivery.  [When they mention noncustodial, they mean fathers– not the thousands of mothers losing  custody of their children to abusers – this is gender specific. The main motivation is money. These programs, designed by the father’s rights leaders, protect violent men from criminal prosecution by giving them sole or joint custody.]  Liz Richards~National Alliance for Family Court Justice NAFCJ

Liz Richards founded NAFCJ in 1993 and dedicated her time to victims of expolitative family and custody court authorities. She was one of the first to identify federally funded Health & Human Services (HHS) grant usage as it relates to family court connected programs and her site contains a wealth of information on how the system was designed. Another excellent site is Let’s Get Honest Blog – Family Court Matters familycourtmatters.org

When you click on the NAFCJ link, you will get the fake warning message that is shown below.

Do You Know Your AFCC? YOU SHOULD!

by Randi James & Liz Richards

“AFCC is the Association of Family and Conciliation Courts – an interdisciplinary and international association of professionals dedicated to the resolution of family conflict.”

Read about Meyer Elkin’s role in the AFCC discussed toward the bottom of their site [AFCC: History page].

Completely omitted from this AFCC history is the very relevant fact that Meyer Elkin also co-founded in 1985, the leading fathers rights group – Children’s Rights Council. Study these people and their site carefully because it is the “blueprint” of how the courts are organized to rig cases for their paid-up allies. Nobody has to slip an envelope full of cash into the pocket of a co-conspirators to rig court cases for these people. It is all done for them by the government. They get their bribes paid for them!

The AFCC never mentions the multiple cross-affiliations between AFCC officials and the fathers rights group including Children’s Rights Council (CRC), founded by David Levy in 1985, along with several other key AFCC people. While this vital fact is no where to be found on any of their recent literature, it did appear in the early (pre-Interent) CRC hardcopy newsletters, which NAFCJ possesses, and uses to discredit this group and the judges who collude with them. Also in these older CRC newsletters was discussion of grants they received from HHS and the people who worked with them on those grants – people like incest promoters Richard Gardner and Warren Farrell. CRC allies were put into high-level HHS-ACF positions such as David Gray Ross, as Commission for Child Support Enforcement (OCSE) -starting in 1993 through approx 1999. Ross was a Maryland Judge, who people who knew him say was a dead-beat dad himself. He spent his time as OCSE commissioner instituting regulations, programs and policies favorable to fathers and CRC. He essentially set up OCSE to be a fathers rights child support avoidance and custody switching agency. This perversion of OCSE’s agency’s original legislative mission continues to-date. This is the reason why so many custodial mothers can’t collect on their child support arrears, while non-custodial mothers are hounded incessantly and even jailed for support obligations assessed beyond standard guide-lines and beyond their ability to pay. Other evidence taken from HHS Inspector General Web site reveals even worse corruption at HHS-ACF/OCSE.

  • TANF now diverts billions of dollars to unfit and unwilling fathers. These grants fall under: Healthy Families Initiatives, Responsible Fatherhood Initiatives, and Access and Visitation Initiatives.
  • The child support agencies are engaged in financial fraud when they interfere in custody cases, kids are getting sold out and killed by the abusers the agency promotes and covers for.
  • The best estimate is approximately $150 million per year in HHS money that is specifically designated to support fatherhood initiatives, plus around $4 billion designated for the Office of Child Support Enforcement (OCSE). Particularly advantageous to those interested in taking advantage of this financial windfall, fathers in these programs are not required to adhere to TANF deadlines or work requirements that are normally a standard for accessing these funds.
  • Furthermore, there is very little oversight of this money, which means that such programs have gotten away with using fatherhood funds to assist abusive and violent fathers in custody battles against protective mothers. These fathers are told that they have two choices — risk jail for failure to pay child support, or embark on a custody battle to take the children from the Protective Mother and thus eliminate child support altogether. What would you choose?
  • Thus, fathers who have had little contact with their children for years, who have physically and/or sexually abused the children and their mothers, often fathers just being released from jail, end up fighting and succeeding in getting custody with the collusion of family court services and mental health professionals.

Title IV (four) of the Social Security Act consists of four parts (A, B, D, and E)

Title IV, Part A (or IV-A) is the most widely recognized welfare program, and is referred to as Temporary Assistance for Needy Families, or TANF.

Title IV-B funds can be used for state child abuse prevention services and for programs intended to support and preserve families and/or to reunite children with their families.

The federal Title IV-D program makes large sums of grant money available to the states through the Department of Health and Human Services (DHHS) Administration for Children and Families (ACF) and Office of Child Support Enforcement (OCSE).

Title IV-E funds can be used for foster care programs, adoption assistance programs, training child welfare workers, and for programs to assist young people making the transitioning from living in foster care to living independently as adults. As the largest single source of federal child welfare funding, combined annual federal and state spending on Title IV-E programs typically exceeds $6 billion.

One of the great mistakes people make is to judge policies and programs by their intentions rather than their results.

Child Support System Eliminates Due Process: “No Judicial Signature Required” Court Orders, Built-in Conflicts of Interest, etc.

Excerpt from a savvy mother’s letter to a Congressman requesting cuts to OCSE funding:

Support Congressman _____’s proposed deep cuts to the $4 billion of untraceable funding in the HHS TANF budget used to keep these pork barrell programs going unchecked. OCSE is encouraging support enforcement agencies to illegally usurp judicial authority on cases like mine to improperly capitalize on grant money. The federal HHS Office of Child Support Enforcement funding guidelines provide that the more families fight, the more federal money DCSS and the Court will receive. The Court is in charge of awarding these federal funds to the nonprofits, but also orders litigants to retain their services. Court and child support programs are required to collaborate with fathers rights nonprofits which service the courts, which gives these nonprofits a vested interest in the outcome of the cases. This incentivizes extortion, corruption, and fraud.

Anonymous (to you…) recent letter.  The reasons we should stop funding this — it’s untraceable, it funds litigation that destroys families and it literally does incentivize extortion, corruption and fraud.   I’ll quote more at the end of the post.

The OCSE has to go.  It’s out of control, and is hurting men, women, and children — generation after generation– while loudly proclaiming it is, instead, helping society, families and kids.

WHAT DO YOU WANT — A SOCIAL SCIENCE SOCIETY, OR LIBERTY? https://familycourtmatters.org/tag/meyer-elkin/

The tax payers (American Citizens), are actually spending more in tax dollars due to the fraud, waste and abuse of the Welfare Title IV-D incentive program. Also, the OCSE does not have to immediately distribute the funds to the custodial parent. Simply put, there is money to be made off the interest of funds that are allowed to sit and/or rotate through Child Supports Central Treasury.

Below are examples of governmental employees stealing from child support funds.

Former Cherokee Deputy Clerk Pleads Guilty 

COLUMBIA, SC—United States Attorney Bill Nettles stated today that Melanie Sparks, age 40, of Gaffney, South Carolina, pled guilty today in federal court in Anderson, South Carolina, to stealing funds in excess of $60,000, from a child support fund operated by Cherokee County, South Carolina.

Former Department of Human Resources Employee Pleads Guilty to Theft of Child Support Payments

Susan Willis, a former case worker in the Department of Human Resources (DHR) Office of Child Support Services, pled guilty yesterday to Theft by a Government Employee in Mitchell County Superior Court. While employed by DHR, Willis stole approximately $17,031.00 in funds that had been paid by persons for child support.Child support fraud sweep nets two more

Two San Antonio women who are among 13 people charged with diverting child-support payment money to themselves instead of the rightful recipients were released on bond Tuesday.

Christine Aguirre is among the six former employees of Texas’ child-support payment processing contractor, Affiliated Computer Services Inc., who are accused of wrongfully diverting state-sanctioned debit cards to themselves or associates.

So in the case above, the corporation was the one left holding the bag.  It’s out $275k due to the criminality of its employees.  How long it took to get the money to the children it was intended for goes unmentioned.

Excerpt from: Yes, Child Support Industry IS a For-Profit Government Fraud (“F.R.A.M.E.D.” and other topics)

The government takes situations in crisis (for a variety of reasons, but definitely may include abuse), and exploits them – – – for profit.  What I do, and what I recommend both mothers AND fathers do,is find that profit.  To find that profit, one has to, after the anecdotes and narratives, which speak to the emotional, wounded, and high-charged issues, get clear, cold, hard, focused and analytical — and use that analytical truth in its own words, to expose the systems.  These are not just one system with one result, but multiple systems with multiple goals, depending on what sector they are in.    

What I (Let’s Get Honest blogger) do which is categorically different that almost any advocacy group or set of individuals I’ve run across, is SHOW that whether it’s about mothers, about fathers, about children — it CAN be described in business and economic terms.  This requires some basic vocabulary (and using that among each other) to discuss, and to get to the basic elements, one MUST (1) include the historical development and expansion of the nonprofit groups pushing:  women’s rights (it’s rarely called “mothers’ rights”), father’s rights, children’s rights, violence prevention, child protection, child support enforcement, child abuse prevention, (fill in the blank). 

Don’t Just Tell Our Stories– Report on Systems, in Detail, and Using Accounting, Incorporation, and Tax Status (exempt or not) Vocabulary.  

To tell “Their” Stories, meaning, those who profit from others’ losses, who build careers around writing up others’ tragedies, and take public and private funding for it, while the suffering continues — is (trust me) very empowering and counters the constant help-seeking mode, which is downright humiliating and frustrating for most people when dealing with systems this large.

Telling our stories and sharing experience is good for bonding, empathy, moral support and identifying one’s special interest group(s).  This only goes so far, and in fact some of the most successful special interest groups who continue to survive, often do so because they do NOT expose the true (fiscal) sources of their own income, or their associates, and especially not the game being played on the public at its own expense.  The Federal grants to the states are the powerhouse and tool of control as the state economies rely on that help for their poor. So, while I thought the place when it came to the issues in my family courts to look was IN those courts, or IN the child support system, in fact, the real answers were closer to the US DHHS, and grants put in place as systems change incentives to the states (ALL states).  So the issues is more than at the state level, it’s about how people who can get to Congress, specifically, to push through appropriations to HHS (largest grantmaking agency around) to start up new programs, fail to monitor the existing one, and “turn the faucet on” while crying “broke” wherever possible, and being “broke” justifies not delivering on their basic services (i.e., for which they exist), AND further extortionist control of either mothers, or fathers, or children.

Protecting Life, Liberty and Property

Published on Jan 8, 2018

A federal judge threw out criminal charges against Nevada cattleman Cliven Bundy, his two sons and a co-defendant in the 2014 Bunkerville standoff, citing “flagrant misconduct” by prosecutors and the FBI in not disclosing evidence to the defense before and during trial.
