Families Matter. Children deserve to have a relationship with both parents. American families are being separated, by family courts and Child Protective Services. Defund ASFA and Title IV-D. Stop medical kidnapping. Stop destroying families. Our children are not for sale.

These are just a few of the messages that numerous family rights groups brought to Washington DC last week in a concert, rally, and many meetings with legislators and legislative aides. They are many groups, representing millions of Americans, but the basic message is the same – our children matter, and they need their families.

On Sunday, September 8, there was an all-day concert under the banner of “4 the Children” with Robert Slaven. “Joyce the Voice” Catalano and Ed Elliot organized the schedule for the day. Musicians entertained, pouring their hearts out in song, while advocates talked to passers-by about the injustices they see happening to families in family courts. More

Parents Storm State Capitals over Vaccines

“Baby shots” used to be a boring subject, and taken for granted. As the number of vaccines grew from seven in the 1980s to 16 requiring 70 doses now, most parents obediently brought their children to the doctor when shots were “due.” The compliance rate was more than 90 percent. Parents who objected for one reason or another just got an exemption from school-attendance mandates and kept quiet. Every state had a medical exemption, most had a religious exemption, and many had easily obtained philosophical or personal-belief exemptions. More

Adoption From Foster Care – Is it More About the Money Than the

The numbers do not add up. There are more children adopted out of foster care to non-family members than there are “substantiated” allegations of abuse or neglect against the parents. The data calls into question the entire rationale that has been given for funding adoptions from foster care.

The Adoption and Safe Families Act of 1997 (ASFA), promoted by the Clintons and passed by Congress, was publicized as an important means of “keeping those poor, abused, neglected foster children from languishing in foster care, helping them to find their Forever Families.

At the time when ASFA was enacted, The Washington Post touted the bill as:

the most significant change in federal child-protection policy in almost two decades.

The rhetoric sounded good, and it resonated with millions of Americans, and with lawmakers. The problem is – that is not what is happening.

Instead, hundreds of thousands of children are being taken from families whose biggest crime may be that they are poor, or that they asked for a second medical opinion for their child.

ASFA Adoption Bonuses – Only Apply to Stranger Adoptions

The Adoption and Safe Families Act provides large amounts of federal dollars to states and Child Protective Service (CPS) agencies, to the tune of billions of dollars per year, to financially incentivize the adoption of children from foster care.

Children’s Rights: A non-fiction book about US Child Protective Services identifying deficiencies which can be corrected to vastly improve the system.

Louis A. Piccone is currently a non-practicing attorney who has previously litigated Child Protective Services cases in State and Federal courts throughout the United States.

About

Child Protective Service agencies across the United States use blatantly unconstitutional techniques to remove children from their families only to languish in foster care, often for years. 66% of children aging out of foster care either commit suicide, are incarcerated or become homeless within 12 months, with the remainder being largely unhappy maladjusted individuals who underperform the rest of Americans, across the board, for the rest of their lives. My book discusses the basic legal flaws in the Child Protective Services system in the context of numerous cases in which I have participated in state and federal courts across the United States, including my own. A survey of the State CPS systems addresses the common lack of procedural due process safeguards including any meaningful evidentiary hearing to determine whether abuse or neglect occurred resulting in children remaining in foster care for extended periods without any showing of the required evidence supporting removal from parents. The legal system for adjudicating abuse and neglect charges against parents is explained with recommendations for simple changes, actually required by our Constitution, which would dramatically reduce the number of children going into foster care, saving those children and their families the harrowing ordeal of foster care and the Juvenile Court system.

I am asking for pledges of 10, 20 and 30 dollars to pay for the costs of self publishing my 436 page book including developmental and copy editing my manuscript, cover design and production, publishing the book, and mailing approximately 750 copies to key opinion leaders to instigate change. Some “keep me going” money is also requested. Rewards are signed first editions of the book. I believe this can be an important book educating the American public about our dangerously misguided Child Protective Service system in a manner that can significantly improve the way our nations children are kept safe.

If you would like to read the 35 page introduction to the book giving an overview of the problems with the system and proposed simple solutions send me an email at louis@piccone.us.

Risks and challenges

My book is substantially finished and the only thing preventing it’s publication is money. So risk of finishing is minimal, however, there may be risk with timelines being delayed by between 3-6 months depending upon editing and review process.

Vaccines Revealed: WSJ Censoring of information about the dangers of vaccines

3 Comments

The Friday, May 31st edition of The Wall Street Journal published an article on the front page, above the fold: “Vaccine Battle Bedevils Facebook.”

The article blasts Facebook for, ironically, not following up fast enough on their decision to censor information about vaccine safety. Vaccines Revealed is mentioned:

“And the top three vaccine-related accounts recommended by Instagram are ‘vaccinetruth’ ‘vaccinesuncovered’ and ‘vaccines_revealed’—all advocates for the discredited claim that vaccines are toxic.”

In a nation that has historically prided itself in its democracy, individual rights, and freedom of the press, it’s hard to understand how a major publication can decry a public media platform’s failure to silence a group that’s speaking out, within their rights, about an issue as important as this one.

What Does “Misinformation” Mean?

The Wall Street Journal, Facebook, Amazon, and others who are accusing vaccine safety advocates of spreading “misinformation” need to clarify what they mean by this term. There are a lot of opinions being shouted and names being called, but there are few actual facts being shared.

Is it “misinformation” to say that vaccines cause autism? The vaccine injury court has awarded compensation to autism injury claims1. The Department of Justice recently fired their own expert witness when he corrected an attorney who misquoted him as saying vaccines don’t cause autism–when in fact he actually stated that he has seen clear evidence that they do.

Is it “misinformation” to say that vaccine reactions can cause death and permanent disability? There are verified deaths recorded every year due to vaccines, as well as injury caused by encephalopathy, seizures, and neurological damage caused by vaccines. These are recorded facts and are noted on vaccine package inserts2. More

Time to Wake Up: International Community Moves to Force Vaccinations

Note From Dr Gary Kohls: Fear of an imaginary measles crisis created by multi-billion-dollar companies like Merck, Glaxo, Pfizer, Sanofi, Eli Lilly – and then propagated by the mainstream media, which is funded largely by these very same companies

By Charlene Bollinger

Epic Medical Systems, a company that sells medical records software, has introduced a way to use patient information to identify and track down anyone who hasn’t been vaccinated. The software is used by thousands of hospitals in the U.S.

Jens Spahn, the German Health Minister, has recently introduced legislation that would require parents to vaccinate their children – or face government fines and exclusion from schools. The fines could be as much as 2,500 euros, or about $2,800 USD.

These moves come in the midst of a measles outbreak during which the death toll has skyrocketed from zero to… well, zero. And while the potential side effects are more extensive than the effects of the virus itself, public health officials here and abroad are making aggressive moves to invade our privacy, strip away our freedoms, and force vaccination upon us.

In 2018, Pharmaceutical giant Merck generated $1.8 BILLION in revenue from the MMR vaccine alone.

It’s time to wake up.

Your Private Information is Not Private

Doctors in the U.S. are utilizing your private medical records to identify unvaccinated patients and push them to receive the MMR vaccine. It is not exclusive to patients who may have been exposed. Family and friends of patients can be screened, and anyone who hasn’t received the vaccine may receive targeted messages about vaccination. More

Should We Panic over the Measles Outbreaks?

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

In general, it is not a good idea to panic about anything. The panic itself often causes more harm than the original threat.

Crisis situations, real or contrived, lead to new intrusive laws that the public would never accept otherwise. We supposedly cherish freedom, but if we believe that the world will end if we don’t act NOW, then we may clamor for the government to save us. Cynical politicians bent on increasing their power never let a crisis go to waste.

Something like the Green New Deal—the end of our comfortable, prosperous lifestyle—takes a truly apocalyptic threat. But to eliminate our freedom to decline a medical treatment, the threat that “millions will die” of measles is evidently enough. Or if not millions (most older people had measles and recovered fully), a few especially vulnerable children, who can’t be vaccinated themselves, might catch measles and die.

There are several hundred cases of measles nationwide, more than in 2014, and bills are being pushed through state legislatures to eliminate all but very narrow exemptions to the 60 shots now mandated for school attendance.

In New York City, people are receiving summonses based on Mayor Bill de Blasio’s emergency order. Everybody, adult or child, who lives in four ZIP code areas must get an MMR shot or prove immunity, or face the prospect of a $1,000 fine ($2,000 if you don’t appear as ordered). Your religious exemption is overridden. The threat of 6 months in prison and the prospect of forcible vaccination were removed before a hearing on a lawsuit brought by five mothers. The judge dismissed the case.

Health Commissioner Oxiris Barbot said that the purpose of the fines is not to punish but to encourage more people to proclaim the message that vaccines are safe and effective. Get it? If you say something to avoid a fine, that makes it true. More
