The California legislature now aims to tighten vaccine mandates even
if vaccines are unsafe, but for now, religious exemptions or a doctor’s note may be included as part of an exemption. Senators Barbara Boxer and Dianne Feinstein are talking about going one step further and removing the religious exemption. In spite of this, there still remains many grave concerns concerning mandated vaccines that have not been fully tested and which have been part of the “fast tracked” program.

One of the most controversial issues for many years has been that of28056_1th
autism. For now, there has been at least 30 studies which suggest a
link between vaccines and autism.

While studies have shown that autism, Alzheimer’s, allergies, asthma
– and other chronic ailments plague people who live in Metro-America, this fact is mostly nonexistent among the Amish who are those grassy rooted farm boys and girls from yesteryear. The “experts” express
complete bafflement about this fact. More

Petition Launched to Prevent Psychotropic Drugging of California’s Foster Care Youth

In response to the current child-drugging tragedy in California’s foster care system, the Citizens Commission on Human Rights (CCHR) has launched a petition calling for State legislators and policymakers to enact protections that would provide foster children and youths certain rights relating to being prescribed dangerous psychotropic drugs—especially the right to object to taking such drugs.

Sign the petition here.

The enormity of the drugging was first revealed in a San Jose Mercury News series last year titled, Drugging Our Kids, documenting the massive psychiatric drug use within the state’s foster care to control behavior, the harm these drugs cause and the financial drain on taxpayers.

Sonya Muhammad, a retired counselor with the Los Angeles County Office of Education/Foster Youth Services, knows firsthand the effects of dangerous drugging within California’s foster care system, calling it “a world of chemical doom.” According to Muhammad, “I have seen children become ill and sobbing and frightened of their bodies’ reactions to these drugs.” More

California lawmakers will consider a major overhaul this year of how the california-foster-kidsstate cares for thousands of traumatized foster children, a sweeping effort to curb the excessive use of psychiatric drugs in foster care.

Legislation to boost caregiver training, strengthen court oversight of prescriptions and give foster youth the right to alternative treatments is in the works in the Senate to address problems revealed in this newspaper’s yearlong investigation “Drugging Our Kids.”

After years of growing concern — but no action — state Senate President Pro Tem Kevin de León said he is “optimistic that oversight will result in overdue reform.”

Psychotropic drug use in foster care is “one of the top issues on the child welfare agenda this session,” said Susanna Kniffen, policy director at the nonprofit Children Now advocacy group.

With a half dozen legislators exploring bills, de León’s staff has been working behind the scenes, attending meetings of a statewide reform group and meeting with advocates and lawmakers considering bills. More

QUOTE OF THE MONTH

The Dalai Lama, when asked what surprised him most about humanity, answered “Man. Because he sacrifices his health in order to make money. Then he sacrifices money to recuperate his health. And then he is so anxious about the future that he does not enjoy the present; the result being that he does not live in the present or the future; he lives as if he is never going to die, and then dies having never really lived.”

new-logo25On November 4, Don’t Be a Lamb Sacrificed to the Judicial Corruption Slaughter!

Richard I. Fine, Ph.D., Chairman, Campaign for Judicial Integrity stated:

“Judicial corruption is the dirty secret of the November 4, election. Don’t be misled by judicial endorsements, recommendations or voter’s guides that conceal judicial corruption.”

Fine continued:

“Did you know that all California justices seeking retention on November 4, perpetuated judicial corruption by upholding the decisions of the 90% of the Superior Court judges who received retroactive immunity from criminal prosecution under Section 5 of SBX 2 11 for taking illegal payments from counties appearing before them in cases.

Did you know that based upon their having been Superior Court judges in counties paying illegal payments, all but 12 of the 42 Court of Appeal justices seeking retention on November 4, received retroactive immunity from criminal prosecution under Section 5 of SBX 2 11 for taking illegal payments from counties appearing before them in cases.

Did you know that of the 12 remaining, none disclosed the illegal county payments when either representing clients in, or judging, county cases.”

Please visit: http://www.campaignforjudicialintegrity.org/ to see the justices engaged in judicial corruption.

Fine concluded: “On November 4, vote with full knowledge. Vote “No” to all California Supreme Court and Court of Appeal justices. Voting “No” ends judicial corruption now. Voting “No” is the best thing that you can do for you and your family. Not voting or voting “Yes” perpetuates judicial corruption. Elected officials perpetuated judicial corruption by passing SBX 2 11. Only you can end judicial corruption.”

The Campaign for Judicial Integrity is a national grassroots movement and organization dedicated to the eradication of judicial corruption in all of its forms.

California’s Crisis: 1 Out of Every 4 Children in California’s Foster Care System are Prescribed Powerful Psychiatric Drugs Including Dangerous Antipsychotics

1 Comment

With alarming frequency, foster and health care providers are turning to a risky but convenient remedy to control the behavior of thousands of troubled kids: numbing them with psychiatric drugs that are untested on and often not approved for children.

A new report issued from the Bay Area News organization, raises the alarm on mass prescribing of dangerous psychotropic drugs to California’s foster care children. Among the findings of the investigation: Nearly 1 out of every 4 adolescents in California foster care system is being drugged , 3 times the rate for adolescents nationwide. Even more alarming is that of the tens of thousands prescribed psychiatric drugs, nearly 60% were prescribed powerful antipsychotics which have been documented by 72 international drug regulatory warnings to cause heart problems, stroke, diabetes, convulsions and sudden death.

The Citizens Commission on Human Rights, a mental health watchdog organization responsible for helping to enact more than 150 reforms against abusive mental health practices, says this treatment of children is medical neglect, and reforms must be enacted to protect this vulnerable population. CCHR has experts in the field of California Foster Care who are available for media interviews, as well as Doctors who can speak to the dangers of the drugs being prescribed to children, not only in foster care, but nation wide.

According to IMS Health, the leading vendor of all US prescribing data, nearly 9 million children currently being prescribed psychiatric drugs—with more than 1 million are under the age of five.

California bill AB1471 is Dam Removal Not Water Storage

NO on Proposition 1 – The Water Bond

The Water Quality, Supply, and Infrastructure Improvement Act of 2014 (AB1471), the Water Bond, is on the ballot this November for voter approval. Proponents want us to believe that it will ‘save’ water by building dams and reservoirs. It won’t. It is designed to remove dams, not create them. It supports wetlands restoration, not water storage.

In the beginning, this bill called for the removal of four Klamath River dams. The language has been changed to make its intent less obvious, and the intent stands.

79732. (a) In protecting and restoring California rivers, lakes, streams, and watersheds, the purposes of this chapter are to:

(4) Protect and restore aquatic, wetland, and migratory bird ecosystems, including fish and wildlife corridors and the acquisition of water rights for instream flow.

(6) Remove barriers to fish passage.

That’s dam removal.

Nevada County Board of Supervisors: Wildfire Severity

Board Chair of CABPRO

__________________________________________________________

“California just passed three water management bills, bringing meters to some wells. New state “super priorities” now places habitat protection first (yellow-legged frogs), health and safety next (humans), and agriculture last in regard to water. Previously, the priorities were listed as human consumption first, then agriculture, then habitat preservation.”

__________________________________________________________

Wildfire Severity

On August 26th the Nevada County Board of Supervisors (BOS) unanimously passed a resolution “declaring an ongoing emergency due to the … threat of wildfire in Nevada County, and urging the Governor of California to take an active role at the federal level to demand that the federal government take action…” That may sound like a great idea to many, but there may be more to the picture.

On July 22nd the Sierra County BOS was the first to sign a county “Proclamation of Local Emergency” resolution. In the supporting documents provided regarding that agenda item, there was far more information than what is seen in their resolution.

Sierra County wants the governor not only to get involved, but to “seek concurrence of the President of the United States over the Sierra Nevada-wide declaration of local emergency.” Do we need – or want – an Executive Order (EO) from the President to dictate to our county what will be done in our forests? Currently there are laws in place that require the federal government to harmonize with county plans when making decisions about public land within the county. Could an EO end that? More
