US~Observer Clients Vindicated!

US~Observer News Alert
US~Observer Clients Vindicated!
By US~Observer Staff

Jimmy Rodgers
"After 25 months of torture at the hands of the most evil oppressor, the state of Florida proved to be no match for Ed, Joe, and the US~Observer. My rico charges which carried a 90 year prison sentence were dismissed because the US~Observer proved my innocence beyond a shadow of a doubt and not the other way around! By the way, my trial was to start tomorrow! GOD bless the US~Observer and GOD bless america!"
-- Jimmy Rodgers

Pepper Rodgers

"Facing the rest of my life in prison at the age of 33, I firmly believe that without the US~Observer, I and my family would have gone to trial and a jury would have determined our fate. You are one of a kind! Thank you."
-- Pepper Rodgers

In November of 2011, we printed our first article, of several proclaiming the innocence of five people in Escambia County, Flroida who were facing false RICO (Racketeer Influenced and Corrupt Organizations) charges. These individuals are finally free. Jimmy and Pepper Rodgers, the last of them with charges pending, were recently informed that their charges have been dropped. US~Observer's staff would like to thank all involved who worked very hard to keep these innocent people free.
We would also like to thank Prosecutor Russ Edgar for finally making sure that justice was served in this case.

Forward this - or at very least, log-on to Facebook and like the US~Observer!

American Minute with Bill Federer August 28 - MLK, Jr., "I have a Dream!" & his niece, Alveda

August 28 - MLK, Jr., "I have a Dream!" & his niece, Alveda

AUGUST 28, 1963, at the Civil Rights March in Washington, D.C., Rev. Martin Luther King, Jr., stated:

"I have a dream...where little black boys and black girls will be able to join hands with little white boys and white girls and walk together as sisters and brothers.

I have a dream that one day every valley shall be exalted, every hill and mountain shall be made low, the rough places will be made plain, and the crooked places will be made straight, and the glory of the Lord shall be revealed, and all flesh shall see it together."

Martin Luther King continued:

"This will be the day when all of God's children will be able to sing with new meaning,

'My country 'tis of thee, sweet land of liberty, of thee I sing.
Land where my fathers died, land of the Pilgrims' pride,
from every mountainside, let freedom ring.'"

Martin Luther King concluded:

"When we let freedom ring, when we let it ring from every village and every hamlet, from every state and every city,

we will be able to speed up that day when all of God's children, black men and white men, Jews and Gentiles, Protestants and Catholics, will be able to join hands and sing in the words of the old Negro spiritual,

'Free at last! Free at last! Thank God Almighty, we are free at last!'"

Martin Luther King, Jr.'s niece, Alveda King, told Notre Dame High School students, September 14, 2011:

"A woman has the right to choose what she does with her body, but the baby is not her body. Where's the lawyer for the baby?

How can the dream survive if we murder the children?"

Alveda King told TheCall Detroit, November 11, 2011:

"In the 20th Century, Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr., was called as a modern day Moses...My father, Rev. A.D. King, is brother to Martin.

Uncle M.L., Daddy, and their earthly father, Daddy King were preachers of the Gospel of Jesus Christ...

Daddy King rescued me from abortion in 1950. You can read the story in my book: HOW CAN THE DREAM SURVIVE IF WE MURDER THE CHILDREN?...

Years ago when my mother wanted to abort me, Daddy King told her:

'No. They are lying to you. She is not a lump of flesh. She is a little girl, with bright skin and bright red hair. She will be a blessing to many.'

So you see, this little girl who is part Irish, part African and part Native American is standing before you today to bear witness of Acts 17:26, that of One Blood, God made all people to live on earth in a Beloved Community, and one day, to live in Eternity with Him. So we are one human race, not separate races."

Alveda King is pastoral associate and director of African-American outreach for Priests for Life and Gospel of Life Ministries. She told Charisma Magazine, August 23, 2012:

"Traditional ordained by God, one man and one woman.

People say if you look in the Old Testament, men had several wives. That was not God's intent. He made a beautiful design for the family. But Satan came in and began to get some things tangled up.

It took a very powerful and loving God to send his only begotten son to shed his blood and to correct that. In the shedding of the blood of Christ, marriage was restored to God's original intent."

Your Pediatrician and Your Parental Rights

By now, the experience can only be called “commonplace.” You take your child to the doctor for a rash or a sore throat, and the next thing you know your child is fielding some unrelated questions: “Is there a gun in your home? Do you usually wear a seatbelt when riding in the car? What’s your favorite music?”

If you haven’t yet heard such a dialogue between your child and the doctor, that doesn’t mean this is not occurring. “Doctors are trained in residency how to gently steer the parent out of the room so that they can do an assessment,” reports pediatrician and board member Verlainna Callentine, M.D. “The mindset is that because so many adolescents stay healthy, there are few opportunities to have a medical impact on the child once they get out of the early years of development. When a child comes in for a particular complaint, the opportunity is seized to assess other risk factors in the child's life.”

Dr. Callentine continues, “Absolutely, it can be intrusive. It is intentional. Some doctors may not want parents to know the kinds of questions being asked out of fear that the answers they will receive from the child will not be honest and truthful.”

This line of questioning is called a “psychosocial evaluation”. There are many of these evaluation tools used in pediatric offices. One such tool is the HEEADSSS assessment, and it has been around for years. HEEADSSS is an acronym for the myriad topics the probe is intended to cover: Home, Education & Employment, Eating & Exercise, Activities and Peer Relationships, Drug /Cigarette/Alcohol Use, Sexuality, Suicide & Depression, and Safety. Some will also include Spirituality, including questions like “Does your family affiliate with any faith community?” and “How often do you go to church/synagogue/mosque/etc.?”

You won't believe some of the questions doctors are being urged to ask your child. Click hear to see one such questionnaire.

If government doctors were using this, there would be constitutional issues immediately. Private doctors, however, are not limited by the Constitution. So while some doctors in certain instances could possibly be held liable for invasion of privacy, the best defense is to be aware and prepared to avoid the problem entirely.

“Parents need to be educated and understand how to navigate the healthcare system with their child,” Dr. Callentine says. “They need to know they have the right to say, ‘No’ or to request to be present during the discussion so they can best partner with the healthcare provider. Parents are the advocate for their children. It is through a ‘healthy’ partnership with their pediatrician that parents and children can best be served."

“We need to educate the parents,” Dr. Rosemary Stein, an adjunct teaching professor at the Children’s Hospital of UNC-Chapel Hill, agrees.

According to Dr. Stein, the American Academy of Pediatrics (AAP) set up a committee several years ago to promote ratification of the United Nations’ Convention on the Rights of the Child (CRC) in the United States. That committee is linked very strongly to medical teaching programs across the country, using its influence to see that the international model – including HEEADSSS assessments – is presented as “the way to practice medicine” in the U.S. (Dr. Stein was a fellow of the AAP until resigning over philosophical differences.)

The HEEADSSS assessment was first introduced by Americans G.M. Cohen and E. Goldenring in Contemporary Pediatrics in 1988. Obviously, then, it didn't come from the United Nations. However, the implementation of HEEADSSS and of the United Nations' Convention on the Rights of the Child (CRC) can have striking parallels. That is because both include the notable presumption that parents are agents to be monitored rather than the natural safeguard for their children's health and rights.

This shared premise makes it easy to employ the CRC and the HEEADSSS assessment together to impede parental rights around the world. The New South Wales (Australia) Center for the Advancement of Adolescent Health (NSW CAAH) has published a popular “Resource Kit” to help doctors learn to administer these assessments. According to their website, the NSW CAAH “believe[s] that all young people have the right to comprehensive health care,” a catch-phrase in international law signifying the “right” of teenagers to make health decisions– especially in the areas of drug use and sexuality (including abortion) – without parental oversight, input, or consent. Not coincidentally, this “right” is often called for by the Committee on the Rights of the Child, which consistently interprets Article 24 of the CRC to include this obligation.

The mindset is the same: parents are an obstruction that must be removed from the room so that the needs of adolescents can be met.

While it is true that there are rare instances where that is in fact the case, fit parents have the fundamental right to direct the care of their children – and that includes the right to grant or deny consent for a doctor to perform a “psychosocial assessment” of your child.

Sadly, the rise of electronic medical records and the drift toward government health care point to a day when the data collected through these assessments will find its way into the hands of the government. And the push to ratify the CRC could introduce a day when the assessment is seen as a legal necessity to fulfill the government’s obligation to ensure the best interests of every child.

For now, though, you do have the right to say, “No.” When the doctor asks you to leave the room for the sake of your child’s privacy, the two of you together – you and your child – have all the legal authority to protect your family against this intrusion. Many states allow the doctor to honor your teen’s wishes over your own, but not to insert the doctor’s own wishes over those of you and your child together.

The proposed Parental Rights Amendment to the United States Constitution will ensure that this right of parents “to direct the upbringing, education, and care of their child” will remain “a fundamental right.” It will prevent ratification of the CRC and halt the intrusion of the government into your home and privacy. It will also guarantee that no law is passed to take away your right to tell an intrusive doctor, “No.”

Help Us Educate Parents
You can help us educate parents about this and other threats to their families in two key ways.

First, pass this email on to your friends and family who may not realize that they are a customer with rights when they take their child to the doctor. Encourage them to support the Parental Rights Amendment as a means to protect these rights.

Second, donate to today*. We are supported entirely by concerned citizens just like you. And if you can give $100 or more, we will send you another tool for protecting your children from intrusion, the complete Internet Safety 101 DVD course. (Click the title for product details.)

Thank you for standing with us as we strive to protect your family.
