Los Angeles Italian Restaurant Owner Continues to Defy Lockdowns – Taunts Gov. Newsom with Warning

Tony Roman's defiance of the California lockdown policies and Governor Newsom's directives against restaurants continued this week when he refused to attend a scheduled court hearing regarding his restaurant with the State's health mandates, refusing to concede that the court had any jurisdiction over this matter. Tony is the owner of Basilico's restaurant in Huntington Beach, California. Not only has his restaurant not complied with COVID edicts, he has banned anyone wearing a face mask from dining in his restaurant. When Newsom imposed a state-wide curfew of 10 p.m., Tony extended the hours his restaurant is open to 11 p.m. As Tony puts it, not only is he not complying, he is defying and taunting the State's unconstitutional edicts. "I will reject any invitation to appear and defend myself for something that needs no defense. I will give you no authority over us where you have none, because we both know that there have been no real crimes or violations committed here. It is instead all of you who must defend yourselves for willfully violating our constitutional rights."

Placer County California Reopens Businesses, Schools, Churches in Defiance of Gov. Newsom, and COVID Incidents Decrease – Model for Rest of California?

Kirk Uhler is the elected County Supervisor for the 4th District in Placer County, California. Placer County made news earlier this month (September, 2020) when the Board of Supervisors voted to remove all the COVID pandemic measures, allowing businesses, schools, and churches to re-open, risking losing state funding for defying Governor Newsom. As can be expected, Big Pharma interests kicked into high gear to protest the County's actions. Placer County Health Officer and Public Health Director, Dr. Aimee Sisson, for example, resigned from her position. Kirk Uhler streamed a Facebook video this week exposing the lies in a Sacramento Bee's article that blamed the unanimous Board resolution on "anti-vaxxers." In Uhler's video, he shows how New COVID cases, county residents hospitalized, positive test results, and cases per 100,000 have all dramatically DECREASED since the Board passed their resolution, which of course should silence all of their critics, except that those who want to continue "emergency" dictates indefinitely really do not care about statistics, or the truth. Other counties throughout California should now follow suit, and put the health and lives of their constituents as first priority over the tyrannical State Government's desire to continue destroying the economy of California, and any potential loss of COVID funding (which can be challenged in court as well). 

California Parents Sue Riverside County $25 Million for Death of Disabled Daughter in Foster Care

Riverside County effectively signed a disabled girl’s death warrant by placing her in a foster home dogged by decades of complaints, charge the parents of “Princess” Diane Ramirez in a lawsuit seeking at least $25 million. Angel Cadena Ramirez and Alberto Ramirez filed suit on Monday, Feb. 10, against the county and foster home operators Michelle Morris and Larry Kerin. They allege wrongful death, breach of duty and violations of child abuse neglect reporting laws. “No parent should have to attend his or her child’s funeral,” the suit said. “Yet, due to the collective, systematic malfeasance and deliberate indifference of (the county and foster home) … plaintiffs will never again have the opportunity to experience the life and vibrancy of their daughter.”

San Diego Toddler Taken from Mother Dies in Foster Care 4 Months Later – Mom Sues County

The tragic death of 22-month-old Tyler Walter who was taken away from his mother and placed into foster care with a 19-year-old foster mother has been reported by ABC News 10 in San Diego. "Adults were put in charge of Tyler Walter's life to give him a chance to flourish. Instead, Tyler died before he could reach two. The biological mother of the 22-month-old boy believes the system failed in its duty. Tyler Walter died two months after being placed with a foster parent. In a claim filed against the County of San Diego, Lisa Walter stated that her son Tyler, 'was healthy when he was in my care he was thriving, he needed his mother and placing him with my 19-year-old niece was negligent.' Tyler Walter died Sept. 22, 2018. The cause of death listed on his autopsy is blunt head trauma." Attorney Shawn McMillan is representing the mother in her lawsuit against the County of San Diego. He was recently interviewed by ABC News 10.

Beverly Hills Harvard-Trained Doctor Sues County of Los Angeles and Social Workers $750 Million in Whistleblower Lawsuit

In 2015 Health Impact News first reported on the case of Dr. Susan Spell (formerly Evans) whose 4 children were allegedly kidnapped by the LA County Department of Child and Family Services (DCFS). Her oldest child has since turned 18 and aged out of the system. This week, Dr. Spell and her son filed a $750 million lawsuit against LA County and some social workers. The Epoch Times has published an article about her case: Dr. Susan Spell, alongside her 18-year old son Nicholas, filed a $750 million lawsuit July 30 against the County of Los Angeles and individual social workers. “I want to bring awareness. This is the epitome of corruption and abuse of power. I have to pay to see my children,” Spell told The Epoch Times. “Susan is a physician in L.A. County. She went to pick her kids up from school one day, only to find that DCFS removed them,” Spell’s lawyer Stephen Lamont told The Epoch Times. “DCFS convinced the school they had a warrant. They did not have a warrant. They tried to get a warrant but it was denied. They said there was a restraining order against Dr. Spell, but that never existed.” Melinda Murphy, a former DCFS social worker who became a whistleblower, has supplied an affidavit in Dr. Spell's lawsuit stating that DCFS falsifies evidence to justify taking children from their parents. Murphy said in her affidavit that her trainer told her and others on their first day of training, “We should be ashamed of what we have done to some of the families that we have sworn to serve.” “During my training, my observations, and in my work experiences, I learned that the DCFS does not have a mechanism for backing down and, has a tendency, even if the parent is innocent, to make them appear guilty in some way, and that includes perjuring testimony, falsifying reports, and fabricating evidence to justify taking children,” Murphy said in the affidavit.

California Mom Wins Second Big Settlement Against CPS for Seizing, Vaccinating Son Without Warrant

Rachel Bruno, the mother at the center of a civil rights battle in Orange County, California, has been awarded another big settlement against social services and Children's Hospital of Orange County (CHOC) after they took her 20-month-old son and ran unauthorized medical tests on him and injected him with a dozen vaccinations at the same time. Bruno was just given a half-million-dollar settlement from the Los Angeles County Sheriff's Department for their role in violating her Fourth Amendment rights of due process by carrying out an unwarranted seizure of her 20-month-old son, David. David had been vaccinated according to his pediatrician's recommendations at a slower pace because of a troubling reaction to Prevnar. At the physician's direction, his vaccination schedule had been altered to slow it down to avoid more reactions. Orange County Social Services vaccinated him with seven shots containing twelve viruses at once, disregarding his medical history and without parental consent. "By the grace of God, David is okay," Bruno told PJ Media. But the psychological damage he suffered from the unlawful separation and time in a foster group home lingered. "It took a while for him to stop rejecting me," said Bruno. "He believed I had left him." Bruno is now reunited with her family.

Harvard-trained Beverly Hills Doctor Mom Still Fighting for Kids After 6 Years

Reporter Sara Tiano of The Chronicle of Social Change, an online news publication dedicated to solution-based news coverage of child welfare, juvenile justice, mental health and educational issues faced by vulnerable children, has written an investigative report about the case of Dr. Susan Spell, a Harvard-trained Beverly Hills California doctor who has been fighting to regain custody of her children for over 6 years. Health Impact News originally reported on Dr. Susan's case back in 2015, and Tammi Stefano of the National Safe Child Show first brought Dr. Susan's story to the public in LA County in 2014 by having Dr. Susan on her show. Tammi Stefano of the National Safe Child Show first brought Dr. Susan's story to the public in LA County in 2014 by having Dr. Susan on her show. The Chronicle of Social Change is reporting that: "In March, Los Angeles County paid a $150,000 settlement to a celebrity Beverly Hills doctor after social workers lied under oath and falsified evidence to take her four kids from her, amid a thorny custody battle. But despite the payout — and the help of top-notch private lawyers — Susan Spell, whose TV credits include Oprah, CNN, Good Morning America, and Dr. 90210, still doesn’t have her kids back."

California Christian Homeschool Family Torn Apart as Children are Medically Kidnapped, Forced into Public School, and Mother is Forced out of Family Home

When the Daugherty family decided to visit Seattle, Washington, for a 4 day whale watching trip to celebrate their son's 10th birthday, they had no idea that a trip to the emergency room would turn into a nightmare that would rip their family apart. They were more than a thousand miles from home and from their own doctors, when chronically ill Zachary began running a fever and showing signs of an infection. When his parents took him to the emergency room at Seattle Children's Hospital, they blindly walked into a web of controversy involving some of the most notorious Child Abuse Specialist doctors in the country, with connections to Medical Kidnap stories we have published spanning from Boston to Arizona, California, and Washington. California parents Kevin and Erin Daugherty learned that the conflict between Boston area doctors involved with the notorious Justina Pelletier case didn't stay in Boston. It has spread all the way from the East Coast to the West Coast of America. Their son Zachary has been caught in the crossfire of differing philosophies of different doctors. Orange County CPS in California has now seized custody of Zachary and his sister Zoe as well, and these formerly homeschooled children are now forced to attend public school. The children are only allowed to see their mother on supervised visits 4 hours per week, as the state has forced the mother to move out of the family home and separate from her husband against their will.

2 Year Old Medically Kidnapped Child Forced to Receive Chemo and Surgery When Parents Seek 2nd Opinion – Part of Medical Experiment?

Just one month ago, 2 year old Grace Alleluia Beabout-Vega of Ventura County, California, was a happy, thriving little girl. She had just celebrated Christmas with her family, and she was recording a children's album with her mom. Wide-eyed, innocent, and trusting, she took comfort in the love of both her mother and her father, with whom there was obvious mutual adoration. She had no fear. Her world was good. A trip to the emergency room over a mysterious lump in her side turned their lives upside down. That was Wednesday, January 10, 2018. When her parents simply said that they wanted a second opinion and to explore treatment options, Child Protective Services swooped in with incredible speed and took her from them. Today, Grace lies in a strange hospital bed at UCLA Mattel Children's Hospital. A huge gash stretches across her entire belly. Her tiny body hasn't even had time to recover from the surgery, yet toxic chemotherapy chemicals began being injected into her less than a week after major abdominal surgery. Her parents have been denied the ability to seek out any alternative treatment options even though they exist. They have been denied "informed consent" at every turn. Social workers and doctors decide her fate while strangers surround her. Her parents, once her entire world, are forcibly kept away from her except for occasional short visits. Her mother Leah Beabout says of her daughter: She's just getting worse and worse. It's like a horror movie. This may sound much like a futuristic sci-fi horror flick, but it is the present reality for Grace and her family, as well as for thousands of others across the United States of America. Grace has been medically kidnapped, and she is caught in an epic battle between Child Protective Services and the parents who truly want to protect her. Her story shows the power of doctors and social workers to take away her liberty, her family, and quite possibly - her very life.

California Parents Lose Custody of 2-Year Old Daughter When Asking for a Second Opinion Before Removing Child’s Kidney

They thought they had the right to get a second opinion. They thought they had the right as parents to have proof of a diagnosis before agreeing to a treatment plan. When California parents Leah Beabout and Christopher Vega asked for medical evidence before doctors remove their 2 year old daughter's kidney, the hospital called Child Protective Services and seized custody of their child. It is the kind of thing that they, like most parents, thought "couldn't happen in America." But as we at Health Impact News have seen and documented, medical kidnappings like this happen regularly all over the United States of America. According to Leah: "I brought my daughter Grace Alleluia to the ER on vacation. Two weeks later, she has NO MOTHER, NO diagnosis, NO symptoms other than having lost 2 lbs, a large incision in her belly and a PORT hole in her chest for chemo she might not even need, a catheter in urinary tract, a breathing tube!??" A child who has never even had a baby-sitter before has been separated from her parents at what may be the most frightening time in her life, the very time that she needs her mommy and daddy the most. Leah says: "The hospital just didn't want us interfering with what they wanted to do and we were asking too many questions." As Grace's parents who love her and want the best for her, Leah and Chris simply wanted: 1. a valid second opinion, 2. the ability to make an informed decision as to treatment plan, including the right to choose the facility to treat her and the course of action to take, and 3. the right to have evidence of a diagnosis before agreeing to treatment. Do parents no longer have this right? If doctors don't want to provide these answers to the parents responsible for their child's care, is the new normal to call Child Protective Services and do the procedures they want to do anyway?
