happening with Federal Government financed Child Welfare
October 12, 4:22 AM
The Child Welfare system (hereafter called "CPS") is dysfunctional across the United States and every other westernized country in the world because it invites bureaucratic abuse of power.
"Bureaucracies are beautiful mechanisms for the evasion of responsibilities and guilt." -Warren Bennis
Nothing better could possibly happen when an entire
agency operates in the belief that their "work" is so important
that it supersedes the Constitution of the United States, and the
Universal Declaration of Human Rights.
you are ever approached by CPS
October 12, 11:47 PM
It is vitally important for families to understand
their Constitutional Rights are real, not just something you hear on TV
''The right of the people to be secure in their persons, houses, papers, and effects, against unreasonable searches and seizures, shall not be violated, and no Warrants shall issue, but upon probable cause, supported by Oath or affirmation, and particularly describing the place to be searched, and the persons or things to be seized."
If you are ever approached by anyone from Childrens
Protective Services (hereafter called CPS), keep in mind that regardless
of what they say, they are not there to "help" you. They may
appear "nice" but never lose sight of the fact that CPS agents
"believe" the allegations reported against your family. Otherwise, they wouldn't be at your front door.

CPS case- What happens in the fog
October 15, 5:40 PM
Beginning with an anonymous hotline "tip" of suspected abuse, a parent enters a gray area of American jurisprudence. And it is not "murky" to his benefit.
Child Abuse, when alleged, is not a criminal matter. It is blithely characterized as a "Civil" matter, much the same as a lawsuit to collect on a breach of contract.- or perhaps like Traffic Court. Thus, the Constitutional protections afforded in a criminal case are not necessarily extended to those accused of Child Abuse. See YOUR Constitutional Rights and Miranda Right.
However, neither is a Child Abuse case a Civil case. If it were, prior to trial, the opposing legal team would NOT have access to the defendant beyond taking his deposition. FULL STORY
A new "Civil Right"
October 16, 11:25 AM
Last year, I was cleaning up my computer desktop. One item I came across was a poignant photo of a FLDS girl alone on a bus waving goodbye to her home and the life she knew.
As I was looking at this image, it struck me that- This IS a photo of the "Best Interest of the Child".
And then it struck me- This is a NEW Civil Right
That is, the child has the "right" to have her life decisions made for her by government. HER "BEST INTEREST" CIVIL RIGHT. FULL STORY

Lawyers who Hate CPS
October 16, 2:02 PM
We note that one of the most popular search criteria they use is along the line of "need lawyer to fight cps".
For years, we have maintained a list of lawyers who have contacted us expressing interest in being listed as specializing in child welfare defense cases.
We also link to our long-time friend Linda Martin's "Fight CPS" site, where she started a Lawyers who take CPS defense cases page, and we note quite a few lawyers did offer their services.
It seems that it might be a great idea to offer a place for lawyers to list their availability and desire to take cases here at AFRA.
Please! We want to hear from LAWYERS ONLY. FULL STORY

Considering that almost EVERY PROFESSIONAL is cited as a "Mandated Reporter" (now including plumbers and garbage men), we are at the point of wondering: "Who can you trust?"
Faced with the DEFINITE POSSIBILITY of a FALSE ALLEGATION OF ABUSE, are parents going to be FORCED to quit taking their children to the doctor? But then if you don't, the CPS is ready for you with a charge of "SEVERE MEDICAL NEGLECT".
With these very real hazards, and their life-destroying potential, I wonder when some creative insurance company will come up with "Abuse-Neglect Allegation Insurance".
I would buy it, wouldn't you? FULL STORY

In the tradition of Halloween, the season is about morbid, terrifying things.
Children's Protective Services is one of the spookiest things in America, and every westernized country in the world.
They are absolutely lawless, and operate exclusively on creating terror in parents.
Threats, coercion, intimidation are their tools. They are the most accomplished of liars. Why anybody believes a word they say is mystifying. The Minion Media spreads their propaganda as if it is the gospel truth.
A Frankenstein's Monster
"Two decades ago hysterical liberals created a monster ---- an unaccountable Gestapo known today as Child Protective Services. Crazed therapists testified before Congress that 75 percent of parents were child abusers and that a new national bureaucracy was necessary to protect children. Congress obliged the therapists' request and unleashed a Frankenstein." Paul Craig Roberts 1999
afraid. Very afraid.

There is an evil in the land beyond the wildest imagination of the average American citizen. Beyond the cruelest theories of anthropologists and archeologists about ancient pagan civilizations. A plague of Biblical proportions.
Almost as cruel as anything Dr Mengele did.
This unspeakable terror walks among us, usurping unimaginable power, operating far outside of the LAWS, and endowed with unearned respect and honor.
Many of them are respectable-looking, well-dressed women. Some are just kids, stupid, dangerous spoiled rotten brats themselves.
Some of them consider themselves as "public servants", as if they have any concept of what the words mean. Most of them consider themselves "children's advocates". Many bring prejudices from their own perceived "bad childhood".
Some of them get into it idealistically, believing they could "make a difference". They don't last long. The "turn over rate" is 50% a year. The ones with any real morals or ethics can't stand the job once they find out what the job REALLY is. FULL STORY
up for reauthorization
November 5, 10:52 AM
We just heard (email we received) that CAPTA is up for reauthorization this year.
So many times in the past, this rotten thing has been sneaked past us. In 2003, we found out about it after it passed.
We swore it would never happen again.
For those who don't know, CAPTA is the grandmother of this present insane fascist nightmare of out-of-control CPS agencies and unconstitutional Family Courts in the United States. FULL STORY

In my previous story "71% Angry at Federal Government" I was tossing the term "Trillions" around as if I (or anybody else) remotely comprehend what a "trillion" of ANYTHING is.
Politicians talk figures in Millions, Billions, and Trillions all the time. Without batting an eye. Seriously, I think they are sight readers who convert words into sounds without thinking. They HAVE to be. FULL STORY
