Time’s Almost Up To Have Your Voice Heard On GALs

April 07, 2017 01:03 PM

A legislative commission on Thursday approved several state programs it would like the Legislative Auditor to evaluate, including the health department’s Office of Health Facility Complaints and the Minnesota Guardian ad Litem program, both subjects of 5 EYEWITNESS NEWS Investigations in November.

The Office of the Legislative Auditor said its evaluation will look into management, governance, oversight and processes of specific program areas.

Excerpt: Guardians Ad Litem Review

The Legislative Auditor plans to review the Guardians ad litem program, which advocates for children and vulnerable adults in the legal system.

According to OLA documents, the state has made frequent changes to the program’s governance, management, and funding over the past 20 years.

“As the GAL board and program staff are committed to continuous improvement in providing services to children, we welcome the opportunity to work with the Legislative Auditor,” a state program spokeswoman wrote in an email to 5 EYEWITNESS NEWS.

The OLA plans to review the board’s policies, procedures and program standards while surveying judges, attorneys, and families about their experiences working with those in the program.

In November, 5 EYEWITNESS NEWS reporter Katherine Johnson exposed that some children in the system have had their wishes ignored by their guardian ad litem.

Since the story aired, KSTP has received countless tips from families who feel their assigned guardian ad litem failed them.

“Despite efforts to improve oversights, concerns remain about the quality of guardian ad litem services,” the OLA wrote to House and Senate members earlier this week.

The OLA program reviews are expected to be completed by January or February. (2018)

Information below is from a MN parent that has been subjected to the evils of the family court system.
The GAL program and those collateral’s profiting off family court orders often name and handpick therapists in their recommendations. That is RICO by definition. If you want your kids back you pay to play. 
They use the legal system to make you destitute and take the kids. This is textbook and the dim witted or malicious or both GALs side with the abuser. 
The audit of the GAL program is closing soon and now is your chance to speak out about the effect GAL’s have had on your family and the reasons this program needs to be dismantled.
Please flood Jodi’s inbox with your very specific examples of how they are ruining your relationships and limiting your contact with your children,
Provide examples of them using therapeutic terminology, false reporting, no accountability when you complained, rubber stamping recommendations, refusal to retract when details were verified false, lies, etc.
Please share this with any parent in Minnesota harmed by a guardian and their lack of accountability from the top down.

Yellow Journalism



From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia:  Yellow journalism, or the yellow press, is a US term for a type of journalism that presents little or no legitimate well-researched news and instead uses eye-catching headlines to sell more newspapers. Techniques may include exaggerations of news events, scandal-mongering or sensationalism. By extension, the term yellow journalism is used today as a pejorative to decry any journalism that treats news in an unprofessional or unethical fashion.



Michael Wolff is the author of the controversial book that is highly critical of President Trump’s first year in the White House and says his book shows Donald Trump is unfit for the job. Wolff claims his revelations will eventually “bring down” the US President.

Order for Continuance

If you are served with a restraining order, you have the right to a hearing to contest the order, present evidence, testify, and cross examine witnesses. The judge must find that you caused or attempted to cause physical harm, or that you put someone in fear of imminent serious physical harm, or that you caused someone to have sexual relations with you by using force, threat or duress. If none of these standards are met, the judge should not issue a restraining order against you. You may remember that an ex-parte temporary restraining order was granted by Judge Karen Asphaug in July of 2017.

Judge Philip Kanning is a retired judge that is assigned to my civil harassment case. Kanning was also involved in the Grazzini-Rucki marital dissolution.

Filing Code: Service Only

Judge Michael Mayer is assigned to my HRO violation criminal case. He was the judge that was on the welfare case of the girls after they were found in November 2015 and had them sent to California for reunification with their father.

Judge Apshaug is assigned to my probation violation case. As most of you are aware, she is the judge that presided over all 4 of our criminal trials.

If a judge is aware of circumstances that could cause his impartiality to be questioned, the judge is supposed to disclose them for the record. It’s not surprising that this didn’t happen in my case and it’s not surprising that the malicious and baseless litigation is continuing to move forward.Brodkorb will report the false updates on this case, so stay tuned for updates from reliable sources.

The Women’s Coalition

Watch 20/20 Tomorrow! Features Protective Mom Sandra’s Case
Women’s Coalition Communications Director Damon Dumas Interviewed
Dear MSM Videos Will Be Aired; SHARE Post

UPDATE: Boycott ABC for Biased Reporting!

20/20’s Elizabeth Vargas flew to Santa Monica to interview Damon Dumas. Damon was expecting to speak as The Women’s Coalition Communications Director, and as such would be letting the public know about how Sandra’s case is just one of millions around the world in which children are being taken away from women and given to fathers, most of whom are abusive. However, Damon was just asked about his own case and attempted to fit in the larger picture.

The decision was made that it would be best coming from Damon since he is harder to discredit and there had been reports that Vargas had made Sandra look like a liar/alienator in her prison interview. However, after The Women’s Coalition Director Cindy Dumas made the producer, Sean Dooley, aware of that and refused to do an interview because of it, he promised to look at all of Sandra’s documents to help confirm that she is not a liar, which he did.

Cindy did interview at length over the phone, provided them with facts and research and, most importantly, the Dear MSM videos showing this is a women’s civil rights crisis. Parts of the videos will be aired, however it is not known which ones. Thanks to all who participated and for those who did not, you can still send a 2 to 3 minute video to help the cause and for other journalists to see. See instructions on the Dear MSM page: https://www.facebook.com/events/185452588478205/

The producer appears to want to genuinely portray the protective mothers’ side of the story. We shall see…. He was asked to give The Women’s Coalition acknowledgement for Damon’s interview and for the videos so the public would become aware of our organization. If you think he does a good job on this segment, you can thank him at: sean.dooley@abc.com. The Women’s Coalition will post the segment as soon as it is archived.

20/20 PROMO:
Timeline: How Parents’ Bitter Divorce and Custody Battle Led to the Disappearance of Two Sisters

Living in Lakeville, Minnesota, Sandra Grazzini-Rucki and David Rucki appeared to be doting and loving parents to their five children, Nico, Samantha, Gianna, Nia and Gino.

But despite the happy moments their home videos captured, Sandra said she suffered years of emotional and physical abuse at David’s hand. She also claims he abused the children.

“We’d lock ourselves in the bedroom because we’re scared. We just didn’t know how his behavior was going to be from one day to the next,” Sandra, 50, told ABC News’ “20/20.”

By 2011, Sandra said she had enough and filed for divorce. But what ensued was a bitter he-said, she-said dispute with their five children at the center.

Two years later, a court-appointed psychologist determined that Sandra had been engaging in parental alienation, manipulating her children into fearing their father. Custody of the five children was temporarily transferred from Sandra to a relative. However, the two oldest daughters, Samantha, now 17, and Gianna, now 16, who were often vocal about their claim that their father was abusive, ran away and disappeared. The sisters were eventually found in 2015.

Today, Sandra is awaiting trial for felony charges of deprivation of parental rights, while David is attempting to move forward with his children. Sandra remains steadfast that she has only ever wanted to protect her children, and David denies he was ever abusive to Sandra and their kids.

Subject: Boycotting ABC

Dear President Dungey,

I am with The Women’s Coalition and am writing to let you know that we will be boycotting ABC until you retract Friday night’s episode “Footprints in the Snow”, issue an apology to Sandra Rucki, Cindy Dumas and women around the world who have been implicated.

As a domestic violence survivor myself and a protective mother of an autistic 6 year old who was illegally ripped from me by a corrupt judge in NJ, I found your segment to be disturbingly bias against women and dangerous to the public’s perception of the reality of what is really happened.   The fact that 20/20 decided to purposely omit evidence showing abuse that was provided to you and the reporters was deliberate manipulation of the truth.

The Women’s Coalition has been documenting this crisis on social media and Youtube and with the UN and Women’s Commissions.  We have a huge following and a strong social media presence.

We hope you correct this episode and do a follow-up showing the additional evidence of abuse.  As it stands right now, you have turned women, mothers and children off to your show by your gross misrepresentation and we have instructed all of our supporters to never to grant an exclusive or any type of interview to ABC and especially not to 20/20

I personally have an exclusive story coming out on one of the big networks in the next few weeks.  I will make sure that when my story becomes of further public interest that I will not speak to any reporters from ABC news.  You have lost the trust of abused mothers and children everywhere.

It is a travesty to harm women and children the way your show did.   You should be greatly ashamed.

Thank you for your time,

Rachel Alintoff

More media collusion below:


DECEMBER 31, 2017BY 


Wikileaks has been a thorn in the side of the powerful for over a decade, and overnight, they proved exactly why.

On Saturday, the New York Times published a story with the title “Republican Attacks on Mueller and F.B.I. Open New Rift in G.O.P.,” and apparently Wikileaks’ founder Julian Assange wasn’t too happy about it. So early this morning, he used the official Wikileaks account to expose even more corruption within Obama’s administration as well as expose a member of the “legacy” media’s collusion with the government to deceive the public at-large.

The tweet revealed that a reporter for the Times used to give the State Department, which was headed by Hillary Clinton at the time, email updates of the investigative stories it was going to be publishing…days before the stories ever made it to print. The emails were ostensibly to give Clinton and her agency time to come up with a narrative to defend against the reports, which were problematic for the administration, or to create some sort of diversion on the day the story dropped so that the public was distracted.

That sounds incredibly familiar, does it not?

Check it out:

“Email shows New York Times handed over Cablegate’s publication schedule to the US government (without telling @WikiLeaks) giving the State Department, then headed by Hillary Clinton, up to 9 days in advance to spin the revelations or create diversions.”

Email shows New York Times handed over Cablegate’s publication schedule to the US government (without telling @WikiLeaks) giving the State Department, then headed by Hillary Clinton, up to 9 days in advance to spin the revelations or create diversions. https://foia.state.gov/searchapp/DOCUMENTS/AugSept2016/F-2012-20462/DOC_0C05572024/C05572024.pdf 

The Daily Wire has more on the people in the email chain:

The players in the WikiLeaks email are interesting. Scott Shane is the national security reporter for The Times. And the recipient of his email, Philip Crowley, was at the time the United States Assistant Secretary of State for Public Affairs under Clinton’s State Department.

As 2017 comes to an end, its clear the Clinton scandals won’t go away any time soon.

Indeed, they won’t be. We previously reported that thousands of emails from Anthony Weiner’s laptop were released by the government just days ago, many of which contained classified information. The release of the emails was labeled a “major victory” by Judicial Watch President Tom Fitton.

“Judicial Watch has forced the State Department to finally allow Americans to see these public documents,” Fitton said. “That these government docs were on Anthony Weiner’s laptop dramatically illustrates the need for the Justice Department to finally do a serious investigation of Hillary Clinton’s and Huma Abedin’s obvious violations of law.”

So really, if anyone is looking for any sort of collusion, they need to look no further than the mainstream media and Hillary Clinton, because there’s more than enough evidence they worked together to keep the public in the dark about a wide range of issues.
