American Minute

American Minute with Bill Federer

October 1

"In the language of the Holy Writ, there is a time for all things. There is a time to preach and a time to fight."

Thus ended the sermon of 30-year-old pastor John Peter Muhlenberg as he removed his clerical robes to reveal a uniform in the Continental Army.

After church, 300 men of his congregation rode off with him to join General Washington's 8th Virginia regiment.

Born OCTOBER 1, 1746, John Peter Muhlenberg died the same day in 1807.

After hearing Patrick Henry speak the famous words, "give me liberty or give me death," John Peter Muhlenberg approached General Washington and enlisted.

Promoted to Major-General, he endured the freezing winter of Valley Forge and fought at Brandywine, Germantown, Monmouth, Stonypoint and Yorktown.

John Peter Muhlenberg was elected Congressman and Senator.

John's father, Henry Muhlenberg, was a founder of the Lutheran Church in America.

John's brother, Frederick, also an ordained minister, was elected the first Speaker of the U.S. House of Representatives.

Both John and Frederick served in the first session of Congress which passed the First Amendment.

In 1889, Pennsylvania placed a statue of John Peter Muhlenberg in the U.S. Capitol's Statuary Hall.

President Signs Child and Family Services and TANF Extension Acts

Posted on September 30, 2011 by YaMinco

Today signaled a major victory for many children and families as President Obama signed two key pieces of legislation, extending benefits to families across the country. First, the Short-Term TANF Extension Act (H.R. 2943) would extend TANF grants to states through the remainder of the year. It does not, however, extend the authorization for TANF supplemental grants, which expired back in June. The President also signed the Child and Family Services Improvement and Innovation Act (H.R. 2883), which reauthorizes Title IV-B through FY 2016 and reinstates Title IV-E waiver authority. CWLA applauds the President on the signing of these important measures.

As I have said repeatedly, I don't believe for a second that anything GOOD is going to happen for families. In a few months, all this will be forgotten and the system will just slouch on with being Nasty Nazis.  As always

Appellate Court affirms mother neglected kids by committing violence against dad

Daniel Weaver, Albany CPS and Family Court Examiner
September 30, 2011

The New York State Appellate Division, First Department, affirmed yesterday a decision by New York County Family Court Judge, Clark V. Richardson, that gave custody of three children to their father after determining that the mother had attacked the father in front of the children.

In the Matter of Aliyah B., the court also stated that the preponderance of the evidence showed that there was educational neglect on the part of the mother, as one child had missed 64 out of 181 days of school and was late 38 ouft of 181 days.

The court also ruled that family court used proper discretion in issuing an order of protection against the mother, and that it was in the best interests of the children that the father had relocated with them to Pennsylvania where the father felt the children's lives would be improved by living with his sister.  FULL STORY

Foster care in Michigan: Maryanne Godboldo's daughter is going home

There's so much good news today it's hard to keep up. But WXYZ-TV is reporting that Maryanne Godboldo's daughter gets to go home to her mother. After weeks of institutionalization, the child had been in the custody of an aunt. The court also ruled that it will not force the child to take any medication. So far there are no further details, including whether or not CPS still gets to pry into the family's life.

UPDATE, 6:05PM: CPS Remains in the family's life at least until December 12.

CDC now calling U.S. households and demanding child immunization records as part of vaccine surveillance and tracking program

Editor of

(NaturalNews) The U.S. Centers for Disease Control, which has been comprehensively exposed as a vaccine propaganda organization promoting the interests of drug companies, is now engaged in a household surveillance program that involves calling U.S. households and intimidating parents into producing child immunization records. As part of what it deems a National Immunization Survey (NIS), the CDC is sending letters to U.S. households, alerting them that they will be called by "NORC at the University of Chicago" and that households should "have your child's immunization records handy when answering our questions."

Liberty Quotes

"The inherent right in the people to reform their government, I do not deny; and they have another right, and that is to resist unconstitutional laws without overturning the government." -- Daniel Webster (1782-1852) US Senator

"...The Bill of Rights is a literal and absolute document. The First Amendment doesn't say you have a right to speak out unless the government has a 'compelling interest' in censoring the Internet. The Second Amendment doesn't say you have the right to keep and bear arms until some madman plants a bomb. The Fourth Amendment doesn't say you have the right to be secure from search and seizure unless some FBI agent thinks you fit the profile of a terrorist. The government has no right to interfere with any of these freedoms under any circumstances." -- Harry Browne (1933-2006) American libertarian writer, politician, and free-market investment analyst. Libertarian candidate for US President 1996 & 2000 1966

"If men, through fear, fraud, or mistake, should in terms renounce or give up any natural right, the eternal law of reason and the grand end of society would absolutely vacate such renunciation. The right to freedom being the gift of Almighty God, it is not in the power of man to alienate this gift and voluntarily become a slave." -- Samuel Adams (1722-1803), was known as the "Father of the American Revolution." Samuel Adams instigated the Boston Tea Party, was one of the signers of the Declaration of Independence, called for the first Continental Congress, and served as a member of Congress until 1781. Samuel Adams formed the Committees of Correspondence, which were largely responsible for the unity and cohesion of the Colonists preceding the Revolution. The original committee, formed in Boston, had three goals:
(1) To delineate the rights of Colonists as men;
(2) To detail how these rights had been violated;
(3) To publicize these rights and the violations thereof throughout the Colonies.

Indiana School Agrees to Cease Subjecting Students to Intrusive Mental Health Surveys Without Written Parental Consent


Victory: Indiana School Agrees to Cease Subjecting Students to Intrusive Mental Health Surveys Without Written Parental Consent

PORTAGE, Ind.— Officials with the Portage Township School Corporation have agreed to cease their practice of having students complete mental health and suicide surveys without their parents' written consent after being warned by attorneys for The Rutherford Institute that doing so places them in violation of the Protection of Pupil Rights Amendment (PPRA), a federal law which governs student surveys by educational agencies receiving federal funding.

"This is a huge victory for parental rights," said John W. Whitehead, president of The Rutherford Institute. "Parents are the ones who should decide whether they want their children to be mined for information about their personal thoughts, beliefs or practices. We take it seriously when government officials try to short-circuit that essential parent-child relationship." FULL STORY

Animal Farm and CPS

Why I was so dumbfounded when my CPS agents claimed they had NEVER READ
Animal Farm by George Orwell, Published August 1945-

Chapter 3

....Napoleon took no interest in Snowball's committees. He said that the education of the young was more important than anything that could be done for those who were already grown up. It happened that Jessie and Bluebell had both whelped soon after the hay harvest, giving birth between them to nine sturdy puppies. As soon as they were weaned, Napoleon took them away from their mothers, saying that he would make himself responsible for their education. He took them up into a loft which could only be reached by a ladder from the harness-room, and there kept them in such seclusion that the rest of the farm soon forgot their existence.

Chapter 5

....At this there was a terrible baying sound outside, and nine enormous dogs wearing brass-studded collars came bounding into the barn. They dashed straight for Snowball, who only sprang from his place just in time to escape their snapping jaws. In a moment he was out of the door and they were after him. Too amazed and frightened to speak, all the animals crowded through the door to watch the chase. Snowball was racing across the long pasture that led to the road. He was running as only a pig can run, but the dogs were close on his heels. Suddenly he slipped and it seemed certain that they had him. Then he was up again, running faster than ever, then the dogs were gaining on him again. One of them all but closed his jaws on Snowball's tail, but Snowball whisked it free just in time. Then he put on an extra spurt and, with a few inches to spare, slipped through a hole in the hedge and was seen no more.

Silent and terrified, the animals crept back into the barn. In a moment the dogs came bounding back. At first no one had been able to imagine where these creatures came from, but the problem was soon solved: they were the puppies whom Napoleon had taken away from their mothers and reared privately. Though not yet full-grown, they were huge dogs, and as fierce-looking as wolves. They kept close to Napoleon. It was noticed that they wagged their tails to him in the same way as the other dogs had been used to do to Mr. Jones.

In fact after I EXPLAINED the plot of both Animal Farm and 1984 to them, they wrote down "suspected mental illness" in my records.

Yes I did end up with one hell of an "attitude" against them.

Wexler on the Waivers

Now that Congress has restored the authority of the Department of Health and Human Services to offer waivers from rules limiting how states can use a large part of their federal child welfare funds, NCCPR has a publication detailing the potential amount of money involved for each state. The publication is available here:

A state-by-state breakdown of the amount of federal foster care money that could be used for better alternatives if your state gets a child welfare waiver.
By Richard Wexler, NCCPR Executive Director, September 28, 201

The waivers allow federal money that now can be spent only on foster care to be used for better alternatives as well.

In addition, this guide looks at another issue: the amount of money that states legally, but unconscionably, take from the meager amount the federal government makes available for prevention and family preservation and divert into things like child abuse investigations and foster care.

National Magazines Promote the UNCRC
Since 37 lawmakers signed on to SR99 back in April, the United Nations’ Convention on the Rights of the Child (CRC) would face a predetermined defeat if it were introduced for ratification in the U.S. Senate. But that hasn’t kept the treaty – by which nations obligate themselves to fulfill “the civil, cultural, economic, political and social rights of children” - from popping up in some generally non-political national publications in the past couple of weeks.

Several of you have commented to us that the last page of a recent edition of Parents magazine includes ratification of the CRC on a 15-item “wish list” the publishers hope to see in the next 15 years. And a recent article by Alex Wolff at CNN-Sports Illustrated’s promoting sports as a means for international social change and the promotion of peace (both good things) also counts it lamentable that the U.S. has not ratified this dangerous treaty.

In its online version, Parents features a simple slide-show frame (number 12 of 24) that says: “Our Wish: All countries adopt the United Nation Rights of Children (sic), which protects kids from hunger and maltreatment.” The write-up from Sports Illustrated takes the familiar tack of asserting that the U.S. is falling behind the rest of the world by not ratifying the treaty, without actually naming any benefits or pitfalls of said ratification. Readers are not supposed to question the content of the treaty or its impact on U.S law under our Constitution. The rest of the world has ratified it, so we should, too.

I can still hear Mom’s response to that: “And if the rest of the world jumped off the Brooklyn Bridge, would you want to do that, too?

Perhaps someone with connections is pushing for these mentions in unusual places. Perhaps the writers and publishers just honestly don’t know that ratifying the CRC would allow a U.N. committee to set policy that our courts would hold as binding on American families. The writers of Sports Illustrated have shown in the past an understanding that parents are generally the good guys, and that even exceptional children rarely become exceptional adults without their parents leading the way. One would suppose from the title that “Parents” would espouse that same understanding.

So, we must assume these writers simply don’t know what it is they are suggesting. That being the case, here are a few things you may want to do:
Action Items
1. If you subscribe to either of these magazines, consider writing a letter to the editor informing them that the CRC is not a measure that would be beneficial to children in the United States. By placing UN bureaucrats in the decision-making role currently occupied by fit parents, ratification in our country would actually be a nightmare, not a dream. (Don’t attack the entire article; our issue is just with the uninformed endorsement of CRC ratification.)

You can write to these publications here:

Sports Illustrated:

(Quoted:) “E-mail SI at or fax SI at 212-467-2417. Letters should include the writer’s full name, address and home telephone number and may be edited for clarity and space” if selected for inclusion in their “Letters” section, which is not likely to happen in this case.


Visit the CRC wish page and select “Tell Us” right after “What’s Your Wish?” Tell them you wish for adoption of the Parental Rights Amendment to protect the role of parents in the lives of their children.

Please be courteous and respectful. Address the issue, don’t attack the writer!

2. If you see other such mentions in other national publications, please let us know.

3. Keep spreading the word! This treaty will not go away on its own. Those driving it in the U.S. know that if they can adopt it without the Senate – through the courts using “Customary International Law” and through the press blindly promoting it as a standard we should follow – they can still get around SR99 and win. Only the Parental Rights Amendment can protect our nation from this treaty by every route.

Mother Charged in Alleged DUI Crash that Injured 6 Kids

The driver's foster child suffered permanent damage.
4:57 p.m. PDT, September 27, 2011

LANCASTER, Calif. (KTLA) -- A 31-year-old mother is facing more than a dozen felony charges for allegedly DUI crash that injured six children.

Stanesha Nicole Allen pleaded not guilty Tuesday to six counts each of child abuse and child restraint law violation, and one count each of DUI causing injury and driving with a .08% blood alcohol causing injury.

The Lake Los Angeles mother was booked on felony DUI and child endangerment charges after being released from the hospital Monday night.

Bail for Allen was set at $1.7 million.

She is due back in court on Oct. 7 for a preliminary hearing.

If convicted as charged, Allen faces 19-years in state prison.

Authorities say Allen was driving a 2002 Toyota Sequoia eastbound on Avenue I near 60th Street East about 5:15 a.m. Sunday when she lost control of the vehicle and flipped it four times, officials said.

Allen had reportedly attended a wedding the night before.

She picked up the children from a babysitter that morning and was on her way home when the crash occurred, said CHP Officer Joshua Wupperfeld.

Two of the children, who range in age from 10 months to 11 years old, were partially ejected in the crash, CHP officials said.

Investigators say the younger children were improperly restrained in car seats.

Allen's 22-month old foster son suffered major head injuries.

His foot was amputated, and officials said the other would be partially amputated.

Allen's 4-year-old daughter suffered major head trauma.

The boy was in stable condition Monday, while the girl's condition was critical, CHP spokeswoman Sgt. Denise Joslin said.

The other kids, who suffered cuts and bruises, were placed in child protective custody.  As if they weren't already??

Two of the victims are Allen's biological children.

The other four are believed to be foster children.

"These are six innocent children," Wupperfeld said Sunday in a news conference.

"They were harmed because of somebody's selfish mistake."*,0,2424090.story

* The CPS agents that arranged these placements SHOULD HAVE KNOWN THIS WAS GOING TO HAPPEN from their magic crystal ball (the same one they use to kidnap kids) because they "possibly might be in danger".

D.C. children needlessly taken from homes, study finds
By Mike DeBonis
Washington Post

The District’s child welfare agency may have unnecessarily removed dozens of children from their homes in recent years, a new study concludes, “emotionally and psychologically harming both children and parents.”

The Citizens Review Panel, an independent, federally mandated oversight board, examined four years’ worth of records — 27 cases handled by the D.C. Child and Family Services Agency from 2006 to 2010, involving 41 children — where emergency powers were used to remove the children from their homes without a court order, only to be returned to those same homes within months.

Finding “too many cases of inadequate investigations and poor removal decisions,” the panel concluded that the city was “generally right to have significant concerns about that families, but .. was often wrong to conclude that removing children from their families on an emergency basis was necessary to address those concerns.” FULL STORY

American Minute with Bill Federer

September 27

Crying "No taxation without representation," he instigated the Stamp Act riots and the Boston Tea Party.

After the "Boston Massacre," he spread Revolutionary sentiment with his Committees of Correspondence.

Known as "The Father of the American Revolution," Samuel Adams, who was born SEPTEMBER 27, 1722, called for the first Continental Congress and signed the Declaration of Independence.

A cousin of 2nd President John Adams, Samuel Adams wrote in The Rights of Colonists, 1772:

"Among the natural rights of Colonists are: First, a right to life; Secondly, to liberty; Thirdly, to property; together with the right to defend them...

The supreme power cannot justly take from any man any part of his property without his consent."

As Massachusetts' Governor, Samuel Adams wrote to James Warren, February 12, 1779:

"A general dissolution of the principles and manners will more surely overthrow the liberties of America than the whole force of the common enemy.

While the people are virtuous they cannot be subdued; but once they lose their virtue, they will be ready to surrender their liberties to the first external or internal invader."

Samuel Adams ended:

"If we would enjoy this gift of Heaven, let us become a virtuous people."

Adults who are interviewed by DCF must now be advised, in advance, that they can and should seek a lawyer prior to speaking to DCF. This will also, hopefully, help to stop secret talks with the kids in school. It will stop DCF barging into your home under veiled threats of otherwise seizing the kids.

Parents are held responsibl­e for "Thought Crimes"- of the CPS agent. Whatever the CPS agent IMAGINES becomes a FACT when written up in her report. The colluding mental illness clinicians write reports that have no relationsh­ip to whatever "test" the accused might have taken.

This soap opera ends up in Family Court, which is neither Criminal court, nor is it Civil court. (See http://exm­.nr/hfjvl9 ) Here, the accused enjoy none of his Constituti­onal Rights, nor Due Process.

The accused end up bankrupt, homeless, unemployed­, and unemployab­le due to being put on the state Abuser List.

The children have NO FAMILY left.

The "state as parent" (parens patriae) has been a 100% failure- because bureaucrac­y isn't good at anything.

This is "The System" that lives in four year authorizat­ions by Congress. Various pieces come up for "renewal" every year, and much as we try to get this Monster defunded, the Ultimate Pork Barrel Project passes with no resistance.

Teen driving, speeding, texting

Mourning Mom: 'I Feel Like I'm Living In Hell'
Woman Talks About Losing Her Sons In Crash
POSTED: 10:21 am CDT September 16, 2011
UPDATED: 10:33 am CDT September 16, 2011

COUNCIL BLUFFS, Iowa -- A mother calls her life a "living hell" without her two little boys. Nina McNeese's children died instantly in a head-on collision on Highway 48 south of Red Oak just after Thanksgiving last year.

The head-on crash hurt McNeese so badly that she had to relearn how to walk.

Now, McNeese is speaking out in hopes of keeping others and their children safe on the road.

....McNeese and her boys were on their way home to put up their Christmas tree, but they never made it because of a head-on collision with 18-year-old Karli Jo Brown.

Court records show Brown was traveling at 74 mph in a 55 mph zone, texting on a cellphone and passing in a No Passing zone.

McNeese was critically hurt, and her boys -- 4-year-old Alexander and 5-year-old Maliki -- died on impact.

"I had to sit there, pinned underneath a freaking engine while my babies were dead. I couldn't even hold them," McNeese said.

Brown pleaded guilty last week to two counts of vehicular homicide by reckless driving.

....Brown faces up to 20 years in prison, but McNeese said that's not enough.

....McNeese wants drivers to remember to put down the phone.

"When you make these choices, there are bad consequences from them. People die," McNeese said.

Brown's attorney said it was his client's choice to plead guilty and avoid a trial.

"All she can tell me was she certainly wasn't intending on hurting anybody and deals with that every day," Seth Baldwin said.

Baldwin said his client admits speeding and passing in a No Passing zone; however, she maintains she was not texting. Investigators said cellphone records indicate otherwise.

American Minute with Bill Federer

September 25

"Congress shall make no law respecting the establishment of religion, or prohibiting the free exercise thereof."

Thus began the first of the Ten Amendments, or Bill of Rights, which were approved SEPTEMBER 25, 1789.

"The Father of the Bill of Rights" was George Mason of Virginia.

When George Washington was chosen as Commander of the Continental Army, George Mason was drafted by Virginia to fill his place in the Continental Congress.

George Mason wrote the Virginia Declaration of Rights from which Jefferson drew from to write the Declaration of Independence.

George Mason was one of 55 founders who wrote the U.S. Constitution, but was one of the few who refused to sign it because it did not end the slave trade and did not put enough limits on the Federal Government's power.

George Mason joined with Patrick Henry and Samuel Adams to prevent the Constitution from being ratified, as the abuses of King George III's concentrated power were still fresh in their minds.

It was largely through George Mason's insistence that in the first session of Congress ten limitations or "Amendments" were put on the new Federal Government.

George Mason suggested the wording of the First Amendment be:

"All men have an equal, natural and unalienable right to the free exercise of religion, according to the dictates of conscience; and that no particular sect or society of Christians ought to be favored or established by law in preference to others."

Nobody argues with me any more

Nobody has tried to tell me I am WRONG for years.

Nobody has called me crazy lately.

Nobody has called me an idiot lately.

Nobody has tried to explain to me lately where and how I have been deceived.

I leave comments on news stories all over the country, and the only disagreements I get there is from the communists doing their nasty Alinsky name-calling routine. I have been BANNED in a few places and a few rags refuse to publish me.

Over the past 10 years, I have compiled tons of generic legal information that can prove to be usefuland correct in court and expose CPS as the RAPACIOUS WOLVES and TOTALLY INSANE PATHOLOGICAL LIARS they are.

NOBODY but Children's Protective Services seems to think that's a bad thing.

Two Words You Should Never Utter to Your Doctor

The minute these two words are heard, these thugs of the doctors, the pharmaceutical companies and the FDA are contacted - and you& can be automatically charged with child abuse and medical neglect.
Posted By Dr. Mercola | September 24 2011

You may recognize Jim Navarro from the documentary film Cut Poison Burn, which I recently posted. You can watch the entire film for free. If you haven't seen it yet, I urge you to take the time to view it now.

Jim is the father of Thomas Navarro, who at the age of four was diagnosed with medulloblastoma, a type of brain cancer. The family ended up in a protracted battle against the medical monopoly after objecting to the conventional treatment, choosing instead to seek out less invasive, less damaging, and less life threatening approaches. However, the medical system's response was swift and callous.

In fact, in the months that followed Thomas' diagnosis, the family went into hiding to keep their son away from the authorities who threatened to take him into custody, charging Jim and Donna Navarro with child abuse and neglect.

The Navarro's wanted to use Dr. Burzynski's non-toxic, highly successful antineoplaston treatment instead of conventional chemotherapy and radiation. However, the FDA went to great lengths to prevent Thomas from receiving the therapy, and only after extensive legal wrangling, great expense, and being forced to submit to conventional treatment first did the family finally receive approval to use Dr. Burzynski. Unfortunately, at that point it was too late. The damage from the chemo was too great, and he lost his battle with cancer at the tender age of six. His death certificate states the cause of death as:

Respiratory failure due to chronic toxicity of chemotherapy

....Who Decides What's Best and Right for You or Your Child?

This kind of perversion of justice poses as the best care available. And there are four primary organizations that are responsible for this travesty: the FDA, the American Cancer Society, the National Cancer Institute, and the child services system. These are the white-collar bureaucrats making life and death decisions about people they've never met or cared for in a medical capacity. Their primary objective is to protect the profits of Big Pharma and the cancer industry itself.

Navarro describes the Child Protective Services (CPS) as "the thugs of the doctors, the pharmaceutical companies, and the FDA," and it's easy to see why, when you hear his story.

"When we began, we were completely uncomfortable with everything and we wanted a second opinion. The minute those words are heard: 'second opinion,' CPS is brought into it," he explains. "You're charged with child abuse and medical neglect automatically. The charges go up from there depending on your level of resistance. They will kick in your door; come in armed. They will attempt to kidnap your child, which we had gone through several times with Thomas. By any means necessary they will get your child.

American Minute

American Minute with Bill Federer

September 24

"The power to tax is the power to destroy," wrote John Marshall, 4th Chief Justice of the U.S. Supreme Court, who was born SEPTEMBER 24, 1755.

No one had a greater impact on Constitutional Law than John Marshall.

Sworn in February 4, 1801, Marshall served 34 years and helped write over 1,000 decisions, including supporting the Cherokee Indian nation to stay in Georgia.

During the Revolution, John Marshall fought under Washington and endured the freezing winter at Valley Forge.

The Liberty Bell, according to tradition, cracked tolling at John Marshall's funeral, July 8, 1835.

Chief Justice John Marshall wrote to Jasper Adams, May 9, 1833:

"The American population is entirely Christian, and with us Christianity and Religion are identified.

It would be strange indeed, if with such a people, our institutions did not presuppose Christianity and did not often refer to it and exhibit relations with it."

A hundred years after John Marshall's death, the Supreme Court Building was completed in 1935.

Herman A. MacNeil's marble relief above the east portico prominently features Moses in the center with two stone tablets.

John Marshall's image is among the 18 lawgivers throughout history, along with Moses holding the Hebrew tablets, depicted by sculptor Adolph A. Weinman in marble friezes on the north and south walls of Courtroom in the U.S. Supreme Court building.

Every Supreme Court session opens with the invocation:

"God save the United States and this Honorable Court."

Wexler- Financial incentives in foster care: WE’VE GOT WAIVERS!

NOTE:  Judging from this story, S. 1542 apparently passed today.

Friday, September 23, 2011
by Richard Wexler

Financial incentives in foster care: WE’VE GOT WAIVERS!

Legislation that marks the biggest change for the better in federal child welfare law in 31 years has passed both houses of Congress and is on its way to President Obama.

“Biggest change for the better in federal child welfare policy” is, of course, a pretty low bar, particularly since almost every other change since 1980 has been for the worse. But this legislation has the potential to make a real difference– if states can be persuaded to embrace it.

That’s because the legislation includes a provision restoring the authority of the Department of Health and Human Services to issue waivers from federal foster care funding restrictions, waivers like the one which allowed Florida to make dramatic improvements in its child welfare system.

The bill was sponsored in the Senate by Sen. Max Baucus (D-Montana) and Sen. Orrin Hatch (R-Utah), and in the House by Reps. Geoff Davis (R-Kentucky) and Lloyd Doggett (D-Texas).

But special credit also goes to Sen. Ron Wyden (D-Oregon) who withdrew last-minute amendments to tack on his own proposal. That easily could have delayed and possibly killed the waivers and the entire bill – which also includes reauthorization of key prevention and family preservation programs.

In a field where everybody says they put the children first, Sen. Wyden really did it; putting personal pride in his own bill aside in order to get the very important legislation through.

So, the waivers soon will be law. Then comes the hard part – persuading states to break their addiction to foster care “entitlement” funding and apply for waivers – in particular big, broad waivers like the one that did so much for Florida.

That was made harder by a series of hoops states will have to jump through to qualify for waivers, provisions added in the Senate at the behest of a child welfare establishment that never really liked the waivers – or anything else that limits the foster care “entitlement.”

So we’ve won a big battle. But it’s a long war.

Posted by National Coalition for Child Protection Reform at 2:51 PM

Yeah. I remember in 2008, all sorts of wonderful things were supposed to come from Fostering Connections to Success and Increasing Adoptions Act.  The actual upshot is, some big piece of the huge system just got reauthorized for another 4 years of terrorizing America's families. These vague promises of "improvement" are nothing but a Carrot on a Stick. I am consistent- I just want to shut down all the money going into this nightmare.  Problem solved.

The Playground at CPS

Jaycee Dugard Sues Feds Over Her Kidnapping and Imprisonment

By Kevin Fayle on September 23, 2011 1:56 PM

Jaycee Dugard, the woman kidnapped as a child by convicted sex offender Phillip Garrido and imprisoned for 18 years, has filed a lawsuit under the Federal Tort Claims Act seeking damages for the federal government's allegedly negligent handling of Garrido's parole.

This should be expanded to include the THOUSANDS of kids kidnapped by CPS who got the crap raped out of them in CPS custody.

Pit bull attacks CPS worker

Man sustains injuries to face, arm
Published 11:11am Friday, September 23, 2011
Irontron Tribune

MILLER, Ohio — A worker from Lawrence County Child Protective Services was injured on the job when a dog attacked him Thursday afternoon.

Ron James was checking on the welfare of children in a household in Miller when the animal, a pit bull mix, attacked him around 2 p.m., Sheriff Jeff Lawless said.

James, who sustained injuries to his arm and face, sought medical attention at a hospital but was not taken by ambulance, Lawless said.

The dog warden was called and the dog will likely be quarantined while officials determine if the animal has had vaccinations, the sheriff said.

The sheriff said there is a possibility that the owners will face criminal charges, either for the well-being of the children or for the dog attack.

They have a comments section there, but I do NOT dare say there what I really think about it-

Congress Nearing Appropriations Deadline

YaMinco | September 23, 2011 at 12:56 PM
CWLA Children's Monitor

With the beginning of the new fiscal year just a away, Congress will not have time to complete action on all twelve appropriations bills, and will have to approve a short term continuing resolution (CR) in the meantime. Both chambers have worked on the various bills in some capacity, and earlier this week, the Senate Appropriations Committee approved the FY12 Senate Labor, Health and Human Services and Education Appropriations bill, which allocates spending for discretionary health and child welfare programs and the agencies that oversee these programs. While most programs were flat funded, there were slight increases for the Promise Neighborhoods community transformation program and Head Start. Unfortunately, the bill included a $50 million cut to the Title V Maternal and Child Health Block Grant. The accompanying report language points to future increases in the Maternal, Infant, and Early Childhood Home Visiting Program, as offsets for reductions in Title V funding. The bill also confirms the elimination of the Mentoring Children of Prisoners program from FY 2011.

The House Appropriations Committee has postponed action on this bill, and it remains unclear when they plan to take up the measure. Congress will likely spend next week finalizing a CR that will temporarily fund these programs at their current levels and prevent a government shutdown.

New Report Links Recession to Increase in Child Abuse

Posted on September 22, 2011 by Children's Monitor

On Monday, Sept. 18th the Associated Press (AP) reported on new research released in Pediatrics that links the recession with an increase in abusive head trauma (AHT) among children under the age of one year old. The report adds to a growing body of research on the link between economic downturns and increases in child abuse in the United States.

The study examined counties in regions of Western Pennsylvania, Southern Ohio/Northern Kentucky and the Seattle metropolitan area and included a review of 422 cases of AHT between 2004 and 2009, predominantly involving children from low-income homes. The study found that cases of abusive head trauma increased 65% from pre-recession years to the recession years of late 2007 through 2009.

The characteristics of the victims abused during that time period experienced little change. The average age of the children, the morality rate, the percent receiving public insurance, and the number of children with siblings in the home all remained relatively stable. According to the study’s authors the small level of change in characteristics and demographics of children abused contrasted with the large increase of cases indicates that the recession was a societal-risk factor that increased the risk for everyone. Mark Rank, a professor at Washington University in St. Louis, cited in an interview with AP the combination of the stress of raising a young child with wage cuts or job loss, as factors for potential violence.

The study’s authors hope that their research will aid in provoking a policy discussion on the specific stressors and mediating factors related to AHT, stating that “the greatest improvement in a populations health care are likely to derive from social interventions.”

I left a nice comment there (subject to moderation- and I think I am banned there)

Am i understanding this correctly? Job loss and financial stress is statistically shown to increase parental frustrations, resulting in abusing the children.

I am a tad concerned what the sentence- “the greatest improvement in a populations health care are likely to derive from social interventions.” – means.

I suspect it does NOT mean JOBS for unemployed parents.
