Young children torn from their parents, sleeping in a different bed every night. Families torn apart needlessly - and illegally -- over and over again. But this time it's not the U.S.-Mexico border. This time it's Florida. Who says it's illegal? A report commissioned by the state itself. Why is it happening? In part, because caseworkers are terrified of "media consequences" if they leave a child in her or his own home and something goes wrong.
Mother Faces Jury Trial As Texas Seeks to Terminate Her Parental Rights Over Daughter Injured by Gardasil Vaccine
A trial began this week for a mother who was separated from her baby after the 4-month-old mistakenly received a Gardasil-9 vaccine intended for her older brother. The Texas Department of Family and Protective Services seeks to convince a jury to terminate the parental rights of Anita Vasquez for her now 22-month-old daughter, Aniya Blu Vasquez. Jury selection began on Monday, June 18, 2018, for the trial which is expected to last up to 2 weeks. We originally reported their story in June of last year. The previously healthy baby, Aniya, began showing symptoms of problems almost immediately after getting the Gardasil shot, a vaccine which is not approved for use in children under 10 years of age. Her mother sought medical attention for the symptoms that her daughter exhibited, asking each practitioner about the connection between the symptoms and the Gardasil-9 shot that her baby should not have received, but her concerns were rebuffed at every turn. No doctor that saw her daughter wanted to admit that the vaccine could have any kind of side effects. The doctor who made a medical error in giving her the vaccine has suffered no consequences, but the baby's family has been ripped apart, as the mother is being blamed for her daughter's medical condition.
Americans are in an uproar about illegal immigrant parents and children separated at the border. The level of hysteria surrounding this topic has reached a fever pitch with senators like Chuck Schumer mugging distraught for the cameras at every opportunity. While the shrill voices shriek loudly about the rights of Mexicans and other assorted border jumpers, American parental rights are being stripped from them, unconstitutionally, every single day. American parents have lost their due process and Fourth Amendment rights, and most of them don't even know it. Most anyone who has been visited by Child Protective Services can testify to the absolute terror that the state can inflict on a family for very little or no reason at all. Right now in the state of Mississippi, Michael Chambers is missing his little girl, Belle. His nightmare began when a Mississippi social worker, Kyra Reed (who also goes by Kyra Carson), knocked on his door demanding entrance without a warrant. Chambers was never told what the charges were. Chambers refused to allow the social worker in without a warrant, and this began a process of the social worker trying to get into the home without a warrant. When she was unsuccessful, she simply abducted Chambers' daughter from school.
It is Father's Day. The day that we honor dads. The holiday began decades ago as a day to celebrate the strong, heroic, protective men who inspire, encourage, and push us to be the best we can be. Most of us have a beautiful, nostalgic image of what today is supposed to be like, but for too many of our readers, that image is a painful reminder of what could be, what should be - but isn't. Children and parents are being separated by the hundreds of thousands in the United States. There are many fathers who want nothing more than to be with their children today, but a judge or a social worker has decided that they can't be. If they had done something wrong, the bitter separation might be somewhat easier to bear, but many dads today are in a situation that was created by a false allegation or by asking for a second medical opinion. They wanted to protect their children and give their best, but people who see their children as little more than dollar signs have stolen that basic human right from them. May God soon bring about the day of restoration of families, and may He hold and protect all of the children, and comfort every one who is missing a loved one today.
Foster Children Turned into Breeders? – CPS Seizes Half of All Babies Born to Teen Moms in Foster Care
According to a recent study published in June 2018, 1 out of 4 newborns born to mothers who are in foster care themselves are seized by Child Protective Services (CPS) within their first week of life. According to American Academy of Pediatrics, by the time the babies reach 2-years-old, almost half of them, 48.8%, are taken from their mothers. At Health Impact News, we have seen a clear pattern of CPS involvement with parents who were in foster care themselves, whether their babies were born while they were in foster care or after they aged out. Many such parents have reported that they feel targeted by CPS. Some have had children taken by the same social workers who took them from their families when they were younger, and some even appear before the same judge as both child and parent. This is the first study that looks at the numbers of children taken from mothers in foster care, and the results are shocking. They reveal massive failure on the part of the foster care system to help the children with whom it is charged with protecting. According to the study: "The biggest differences were seen for children taken into care within 7 days. ... those in care at the birth of their child (regardless of whether they were in care at conception) had more than 11 times the odds of having their child placed in care."
Drug addiction and the opioid crisis are big news. It seems that policy makers and legislators on just about every level are discussing the problem and what to do about it. Certainly, child welfare agencies have been quick to jump on the bandwagon, removing children from their families at the mere mention of the word "drugs." Richard Wexler is the executive director of the National Coalition for Child Protection Reform. He argues that the issue of drug usage is not so black-and-white, and he criticizes "child welfare’s typical, knee-jerk take-the-child-and-run response to the opioid epidemic." Wexler recently wrote an article, "Child Welfare Policy Around Opioids Driven By Ignorance and Arrogance," for Youth Today, in which he examines a "research brief" published in March 2018, by the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services, which looked at parental substance abuse and children being taken by Child Protective Services. Wexler was not impressed by the methodology or conclusion of the HHS brief, and calls the child welfare policies "enormously dangerous to children." Wexler writes: "Indeed, the most important takeaway from the research brief is that child welfare policy on this issue lives at the intersection of ignorance and arrogance and that is enormously dangerous to children. The alternative to leaving children with parents who have substance abuse issues — foster care — usually is far worse for the children. This is not just the case for foster children in general. Research from the last great 'drug plague,' crack cocaine, found that even infants born with cocaine in their systems typically developed better when left with birth mothers able to care for them than they did when placed in foster care." This is a point that we have stated many times at Health Impact News - that children who are placed into foster care are at least 6 times more likely to be abused, raped, molested, or killed in foster care than they are if left in their own home, even in a troubled home, such as a home where the parent is a drug user. By removing children from parents who have drug issues, social workers are more often than not taking children out of the frying pan and throwing them into the fire. Many of the children taken from their homes end up being trafficked into the child sex trafficking trade. Social workers, judges, GALs, and society at large must reexamine CPS "protection." At what cost are these children being "protected?"
According to a growing number of reports, thousands of children are simply disappearing from the UK Care System (the equivalent of the "Foster Care" system in the U.S.) every year, and what is said to be happening to them is too awful to contemplate. Maggie Tuttle, children’s campaigner and founder of the action group, Children Screaming to be Heard, states: "The so called 10,000 kids, in 2018, that have gone missing are now being trafficked from care by Government bodies and their self-made army known as the Social Services, who also control the nation and as we know thousands of kids are stolen from care for the pedophiles." Whistle-blower and retired Criminal Investigation Department (CID) officer, Jon Wedger, who has a background working in the vice squad and in child abuse cases, told Health Impact News that he began investigating these "lost" children in the care of Social Services, and found many were being sold to brothels. But instead of being commended for his work, he lost his job and was threatened. A Scotland Yard detective told him: "When you investigate any crime, and you do well in it, you get praised, but when you look into child abuse cases, the opposite happens. If you ever expose what you have found out, you will lose your home, your children and your job...you must shut the f’ up. You will be thrown to the wolves; you have no idea who and what you are dealing with. I am warning you now, you must back away."
Veteran’s Group in Arizona Confronts Police on Inaction – Finds Child’s Dead Body While Authorities Stand By
Earlier this week we reported that a local veterans group based in Tucson, Arizona, Veterans on Patrol, uncovered a child sex camp while out on patrol looking for homeless veterans to pull off of the streets. The corporate media, local law enforcement, and even many in social media have criticized the group for "making a big deal out of nothing." Local police mocked them, asking them where their evidence was, and where the victims were, in spite of the fact that they had been presented with much evidence that clearly contradicted the official police story that this was a "homeless camp." But today, Thursday June 7th, events took a dramatic turn as VOP's patrols uncovered a decomposing child's skull and bones.
7-Year-Old Sister of Down Syndrome Baby Euthanized by Vanderbilt Hospital Still Not Returned to Family – State Wants Her Adopted
Friday, June 8, 2018, marks the 1-year anniversary of the tragic death of medically kidnapped Baby Steffen Rivenburg at Vanderbilt Hospital, under the care of Tennessee Department of Children's Services (DCS). His big sister, Annalise, remains in foster care and DCS is, again, trying to terminate parental rights. There will be a march and candlelight vigil in Baby Steffen's honor on Friday, June 8th, at the Nashville State Capitol building, followed by a Saturday afternoon event with several speakers discussing judicial accountability, family integrity, and other issues important to families. The public is invited to attend. Baby Steffen's story was one of the most heart-wrenching stories that we have covered at Health Impact News, and there still remains no justice for the family. At times, over the past year, it appeared that Annalise might be coming home. However, about 2 weeks ago, the family received a letter in the mail telling them to be in court on Monday, June 11, because DCS intends to file to terminate parental rights.
BREAKING: Vet Group Finds Pedophile Child Sex Camp Near Tucson – Local Law Enforcement Refuses to Help as Tensions Rise
A few days ago, a group of veterans based out of Tucson, Arizona, known as Veterans on Patrol (VOP), stumbled upon what they have good evidence to believe is a child sex camp. The group was searching for homeless veterans, part of their mission in trying to prevent veteran suicides. This is a worthy mission, considering the fact that more soldiers die by suicide than by combat. On May 29th, the group was out with another organization called American Rehab Campuses, trying to pull drug addicts off of the streets, particularly those caught up in the opiod crisis. They stumbled upon something by chance, and it was in a known human trafficking corridor with ties to the Mexican Cartels. When they found a structure powered by solar lights, they knew right away they had found something that certainly was not constructed by homeless people or drug addicts. They found an underground chamber where young children apparently had been imprisoned, presumably as part of a pedophile sex trafficking ring. The group alerted local law enforcement and Homeland Security to investigate, and to bring out "cadaver dogs" to look for bodies, but they would not respond. VOP reports: "After nearly 24 hours of no Investigator showing and the Department of Homeland Security making a PHONE ASSESSMENT declaring that no Human Trafficking was occurring in our area... Alpha Company invited Fox News to come get a first hand look at rape trees, an underground child prison cell, and new construction going in to expand child holding capabilities. This is occurring not on our Border... but in our own City... Tucson, Arizona. The Child Sex Traffickers took a hit when VOP and ARC discovered their secret Camp... but they will just move on and start again elsewhere (unless we find them first, and we are looking.) Alpha Company would like to thank Nailer of Arizona Border Recon and Craig 'Sawman' Sawyer for assisting us last evening when the Child Sex Camp was discovered. Nothing to see here America... just innocence being raped and beaten from small children off the I-19 and Valencia exit in our own backyard. More on this to come." The mission was named Operation Backyard Brawl, #operationbackyardbrawl. As of last night, Sunday June 3, 2018, Lewis Arthur and another American veteran were in a stand-off with local authorities who were trying to stop their investigation, and they fully expected government forces to execute them. But things began turning around for them today, Monday June 4th.
