THE MOTIVE at Newtown

Was Sandy Hook an elaborate Hoax? Was this all a stage to continue the agenda of gun-confiscation after Tucson shooting sparked gun-control debate killing the Brady Bill Judge?

Woman Claims Sandy Hook Coroner admitted Shooting was a Hoax – motive reveals itself…

Stephanie Sledge | The Government Rag | 26Jan2013 | Opinion

On Friday, on the The Power Hour w/ Joyce Riley, a woman by the name of ‘Bonnie’ called in and reported that the Sandy Hook coroner, Dr. H. Wayne Carver II, was spotted in Las Vegas. The woman claims she has information that she obtained from a close friend, who owns a business in the area.

She claims, “he just got back from Las Vegas, now mind you, this business owner is not like one of us – you know, he is just a normal citizen, but he told him he said –  he was in Las Vegas and he was at one of the tables, and across the table from him was the coroner from Sandy Hook” (Photo obtained; Vegas Card).

“He took a picture of him on his cell phone, and uh, so the guy they got, they got to talking when he saw him take a picture and the man said… “You know, this is pretty fishy about Sandy Hook and its starting to look like a hoax,” and the doctor said, “it was a hoax.”

The woman did not elaborate anymore and claims she was trying to get the picture that the man took on his cell phone. Interestingly enough, the International Association of Coroners & Medical Examiners (IAC&ME) 2013, Executive Board Meeting, was held in Las Vegas on January 22-24th, 2013. This period would coincide with the statement that the caller claims her friend was also in Las Vegas.

Friends, I can only visualize, there is nothing like holding a ‘Jack’….

dr wayne carverDr. H. Wayne Carver is the Chief Medical Examiner at the Office of the Chief Medical Examiners under the control of the Commission on Medicolegal Investigations. The Commission is composed of nine members, who are appointed by Governor Dannel P. Malloy. He has headed the office since 1989. He was born in St. Louis, Missouri and raised in Skokie, Ill. He earned an undergraduate degree at Brown University and his residency and pathology training at the University of Chicago and the Cook County Medical Examiner’s Office. He was originally deputy chief medical examiner and then promoted. His salary was around $299,783 per year.

Dr. Carver had been a long time medical examiner. According to his license from the Dept. of Public Health, he has been licensed in CT since July 1982. He has testified in high-profile cases including the Cheshire home-invasion case, the serial killer, Michael Ross case, and the Richards Crafts “wood-chipper’ murder case. Michael Ross was executed in 2005. He has always been known to testify well on the stand and assist the police for a prosecution.

Dr. Carver even threatened the state in the later part of 2011 to resign from his position as Chief Medical Examiner. According to WTNH 8, “Carver accused Malloy’s administration of meddling with the medical examiner’s office by removing five employees as part of an effort to centralize certain state agency operations, such as payroll.” Carver also said, “At the time that the move wouldn’t save any money and could jeopardize the independence of his agency.” Then, just a few weeks later, Carver withdrew his resignation claiming that he would not be able to stay on as an assistant. Carver mocked the budget cuts and did not appreciate that his “department had its national accreditation downgraded by one agency and dropped by another.”

Carver claimed these problems would have to be rectified. Carver took his issues up with the Commission on Medicolegal Investigations, which governs his office. He professed that he would have to gain clearance through the governor’s budget office, the Office of Policy Management (OPM) under Benjamin Barnes, which at the time was in the process of reorganizing the Office of Medical Examiner into the University of Connecticut Health Center. According to the OPM’s website, “OPM is composed of seven divisions that report to the Office of the Secretary: AdministrationBudget and Financial ManagementCriminal Justice Policy and Planning Division,  FinanceIntergovernmental PolicyLabor Relations, and Policy Development and Planning. The agency also maintains an office in the State Capitol for OPM’s legislative activities.”

So, under the command of Hillary Clinton, that is… The same woman that signed the United Nations (UN) Small Arms Treaty? Okay all, go back to sleep now – it’s just a conspiracy theory….

Connecticut Office of Medical Examiners has full accreditation from the National Association of Medical Examiners and the American Board of Forensic Toxicology. Other related agencies, according to their website are:

medical examiners state agency related agencies

carver medical license

Unfortunately, for the CT Chief Medical Examiners Office, there have been some fishy incidents and what appears to be a cover-up, which includes one of Carver’s medical examiners, Dr. Frank Evangelista who was recently indicted, charged, and arrested for perjury. In Jan 2012, Evangelista was charged with perjury and arrested in Massachusetts for allegedly lying about autopsies in state court. He was one of the top assistants to Carver and testified in high-profile cases. Evangelista plead not guilty.  He was fired from his position in CT.

ecangelistaFollowing a pre-trial hearing in Blockton Superior Court, Cynthia Brackett, assistant district attorney, alleged there were “material inconsistencies” between a 2006 and 2010 trial testimonies given from Dr. Evangelista. The trials were of two men charged with beating a homeless man to death in Wareham in 2004. Brackett refused to give the specifics on what Evangelista allegedly said that would have lead to perjury. According to the article from Boston.com, “Dr. H. Wayne Carver, Connecticut’s chief medical examiner, said the case is a personal issue and that he could not comment on it.” – – – Huh? Personal issue? In other wards, he is keeping his mouth shut.  (Picture obtained by CTPost).

Dr. Carver appears to be involved in the cover-up of the Sandy Hook shooting. Proof can be obtained here. He wrote a letter addressed to Chairman, Coleman, Chairman, Fox, and Honorable Members of the Judiciary Committee in regards to Raised Bill 1054, An Act Concerning the Disclosure of Autopsy Reports. In the letter, he states,

“ The Office of the Chief Medical Examiner would like to take the opportunity to comment on Raised Bill 1054. This Bill would prevent the Office of the Chief Medical Examiner from unilaterally disclosing autopsy reports on pediatric homicides to the general public. The Office of the Chief Medical Examiner as an institution and J, are very concerned about the privacy rights of individuals who are examined through our office and particularly with respect to homicide victims whose family find their privacy and grieving invaded by the curious public.”

This evidence could suggest that Carver knew ahead of time and helped plan and cover-up the alleged pre-meditated murders of the Sandy Hook victims and to prevent the public from finding out the truth by exempting his office from releasing information. Notice, how Carver emphasizes ‘pediatric homicides’ in the letter? The bill was passed. This bill is outrageous as it can leave loopholes for the medical examiner to cover-up and possibly lie about autopsies and never get caught.

Update – further in the letter, Carver states: medical quote carver legislation

This statement could also imply that Carver was defending his Office’s stance on the legislation as well as being portrayed as ‘against’ it. Now, I pose the question of whether Carver was set-up for bucking the system of change… just a thought but worth debating.

Remember, just a few days after the alleged shooting, an employee, Jean Henry, was recently placed on leave for showing her husband, who did not have authorization, the body of Adam Lanza. Henry was a processing technician at the Farmington facility. Carver placed her on leave and an internal complaint was filed.

raised bill 1054

The cover-up continues and the medical agenda goes deep. Adam Lanza’s DNA had allegedly been donated to study what they call the evil’ gene. When I investigated the Tucson shooting, the medical agenda cover-up ran deep. Some of the same agencies, including the Department of Public Health, other governmental agencies, the military, non-profits, law firms, financial institutions, government contractors, universities, medical centers, foreign entities, and more. Jared Lee Loughner was a product of this psyop at a post-doctorate level. If you mix the medical agenda of Suspended Animation with DNA, what do you have? I am not a doctor but my concern is the total disregard for humanity and the endless search to isolate a “so-called’ GOD particle. You can’t make this stuff up…

There are similarities and leads surfacing and for that, a review of the members of the Commission is warranted. It is not a good idea to be taken away with the psyop within the psyop at this point of the destruction of America. The evil world is upon humanity. This is being done through science, education, and mind control techniques.

Dr. Jewel Mullen paid commision dept of public healthThe Commission on Medicolegal Investigations is made up of nine members. The one who is paid is the Commissioner of Public Health, which is Dr. Jewel Mullen, who oversees the states leading public health agency.

Before joining the Commission, she was Director of the Bureau of Community Health & Prevention at Massachusetts Dept. of Public Health. She was also director of Bay State Mason Square Neighborhood Health Center in Springfield, Massachusetts. She also did her clinical career as a member of the National Health Service Corps at Bellevue Hospital, NY, then joined the medical facility of the U of Virginia. She is now a member of the medical staff at the hospital in St. Raphael, Yale University Health Services and certified in internal medicine. She was a graduate of Mount Sinai School of Medicine and completed her residency at the University of Pennsylvania. She holds a Master’s degree in Public Health Administration from Harvard University John F. Kennedy School of Government. Mullen’s primary goal is to understand the social context, which determines their behaviors and their access to resources. Mullen is also on the Board of Regents for Higher Education at the University of Connecticut (Photo, Dept of Public Health).

NOTE: AmeriCares is known to be a humanitarian aid and nonprofit organization, which provides immediate response to emergency medical needs. AmeriCares also supports long-term healthcare programs. Does your local restaurant collect donations for AmeriCares? Hummm…. 

According to an article written by Red Dirt Report titled, SANDY HOOK: Links to AmeriCares, Knights of Malta?,  

“The AmeriCares angle was brought to the attention of Red Dirt Report via a comment made by a poster named “Ken” on the following story posted at The Intel Hub: “During my continuing investigations I’ve found that ‘AmeriCares’ paid for the renovations of several homes in Newtown a couple of years back. One of these homes just happened to be a ‘Parker’ family home. My research indicates they are related to Robbie Parker, who moved there 8 months ago.” Indeed, look at this link noting the Newtown Lions Club working with AmeriCares on houses in Newtown. And more interestingly, a 2009 article in the Newtown Bee reports that “AmeriCares Program brings spring renewal to two Sandy Hook homes.” A family named “Parker” does indeed receive some help via AmeriCares. But are those Parkers, and the Parkers who lost their daughter in the Dec. 14, 2012 massacre, related? 
Indeed. Robbie Parker, as readers may recall, was the father of Emilie Parker, the six-year-old girl who died in the Sandy Hook Elementary shooting. A lot of independent researchers have pointed to Robbie Parker as a suspicious character, based on his bizarre, post-shooting behavior, oddities about his “family photos” and other issues, particularly that news conference where he was smiling, joking around and then forcing some “tears.” Parker is originally from Ogden, Utah and has bounced around a bit.”

According to Physicians Committee for Responsible Medicine website, “In addition, on Nov. 11, 2011–Veterans’ Day–these former and retired military medical personnel signed a letter to the Chairman and Ranking Member of the House Armed Services Committee, urging them to take action to pass H.R. 1417, the BEST Practices Act, a bill that would requirere the Department of Defense to expeditiously phase-in the use of medical simulation as a replacement for live animal use. Read their letter here.”

(Update)- I would like to clarify that the direct correlation to this bill listed above is the relation to the bill by the support of ending the use of animal experimentation (so-to-speak), to simulations. This letter was signed by Frank Scarpa, who is a member of the Medicolegal Commission. 

Transhumanistic technology includes further work and experimentation into the cryonics as well as virtual reality simulation. According to a website called Lifeboat.com,

“Cryonics is the high-fidelity preservation of the human body, and particularly the brain, after what we would call death, in anticipation of possible future revival. Cryonics is an important transhumanist technology not only because it is already available today, but because the technology is relatively mature — we can reliably stop cells from decaying. In vitrification, the brain is not frozen in the conventional manner but with a cryoprotectant (antifreeze) mixture, which effectively prevents the formation of crystals, causing the water to freeze smoothly, like glass.”

“Simulations will become the preferred environments for work and play. Pretty soon the main obstacle to truly immersive VR will not be the visuals but the haptics — our sense of touch. To fool our senses into believing haptic technologies are conveying the real thing, the “frame rate” needs to be significantly higher than for visual technologies, a few hundred updates per second rather than a few dozen — which is why development could take another decade or two. But many millions of dollars are currently going into efforts to develop advanced VR.”

The Department of Defense even now has simulated therapists for soldiers that are experiencing mental illness symptoms. 

According to Wired, “The Pentagon hasn’t made much progress in solving the PTSD crisis plaguing this generation of soldiers. Now it’s adding new staff members to the therapy teams tasked with spotting the signs of emotional pain and providing therapy to the beleaguered. Only this isn’t a typical hiring boost. The new therapists, Danger Room has learned, will be computer-generated “virtual humans,” used to offer diagnostics, and programmed to appear empathetic.”

Does anyone else notice the rise of mental health agenda, investments in treatment facilities, prisons, workers, and professionals? Looks like we should take the gun grab seriously as the nation of sleepers/mind-controlled virtual reality video game slaves are among us?  (End of Update)

It is the merger between the law and the medical establishment to rebuild the legal system to deal with the making of the transhuman and the creation of new curriculums for crime scenes for investigations on the post transhuman. (MEDICOLEGAL). The genetic manipulation of mankind now has consequences for their experiments through the food, water, drugs, mind-control, and the environment. It is the removing the functions of the Pineal Gland, the third eye, the seat of what some believe to be the center of your spirituality. The center of the mind, the place we see without a veil.  It is the extension of life and immortality. It is the enslavement of humanity for generations to come.

We live in a mad science world…

It’s better to make someone cry with the truth, rather then a smile with a lie. – Anonymous….

Was Dr. Carver drunk or drugged on the day of the press conference?

Conclusion: It appears this was such an elaborate staged event….

Lift the veil.. you will eventually see the truth…

Mainstream Blackout on Obama Crimes: March to Washington 2010

Mainstream Blackout on Obama Crimes:  Americans Greatest March to Washington 2010

As evidence mounts against President Obama/aka Barry Soetoro/aka Saebarkah, Americans are growing more unrest over his true identity of what millions of citizens believe to be that of a modern-day con man. As more cover-ups continue on the governmental front, the sleeping giant of American people are marching to Washington, D.C., October 23, 2010 to expose this new evidence to the world. It all started with Philip J. Berg, Esquire, the first Attorney who filed suit against Obama challenging his lack of “qualifications” to serve as President of the United States. Like a Halloween hunt, clues surfaced over Obama’s real birth certificate origins which could determine who this man really is and alleged ties to the establishment. As American’s find out more and more lies and cover-ups being exposed to the public, the mainstream remains silent over the Obama crimes issue.

In an immediate release by ObamaCrimes, the hunt for the truth has also exposed an alleged cover up questioning motives behind the State of Hawaii’s involvement in suppressing evidence and questions why one man is so important that Hawaii is willing to commit Misprision of Felony for him.

“Hawaii is covering this up for political reasons to protect Obama. Only they know the ultimate reasons they are all willing to commit Misprision of Felony at this point in time given the mounting evidence that Obama was not physically born in Hawaii. Obama may have amended his record since 1961 to try to reinforce and cover up the original fraudulent filing. But his online COLB clearly shows that when it was FILED it was never finally ACCEPTED. This is a national disgrace that our entire system of laws including the Constitution and all legal records are being subverted and subordinated to cover up for Obama’s continued fraud on the nation as to his true legal identity. What is so important about this one man that Hawaii is willing to see the nation destroyed by his corruption and lies from birth by his family and continued on all his life by Obama. The man is a grifter and conman.”

The March takes place on September 23, 2010 at the U.S. Capital on the West Front. Thousands of Americans are due to stand up and demand exposure to what some believe to be the greatest National Security threat America faces today and questions whether or not our government is being run by a con, a fake, a phony.  In a video by Philip J. Berg, he gives an overview of alleged evidence that is mounting against Obama and the reasons for the mass march to Washington.

Confirmed: Court Did Rely on Oath Keeper Association to Kidnap Baby


 

Stewart Rhodes

October 11th, 2010

CONFIRMED: Court Did Rely on Oath Keeper Association to Take Baby

Oath-keeper-patchThere has been some confusion about this case, leading some commentators to believe that the reference to John Irish’s “association” with Oath Keepers was in some other document, rather than in the affidavit relied on by the Court’s Order.  Alex Jones’ site, in an effort to protect the privacy of the family, posted excerpts from two different documents, leading some to question where the reference actually was.

To clear that up, below you will find an embedded PDF which contains the full (though redacted) versions of the following documents:  the two Petitions (one pertaining to each parent), the Court’s Ex Parte Order, the  Affidavit of Dana Bickford which was attached, the Motion for Change of Venue, and lastly, the Notice to Accused Parent, explaining the legal process.   We have highlighted in yellow all text where the Petitions or the Court Order refers to the Affidavit which contains reference to Oath Keepers.

By looking at the below documents, you will be able to see from the two Petitions, the Order, and Affidavit item #7, in that order, that:

1.  Both Petitions state:  “7. Details or Details or facts of abuse/neglect (attach separate sheet if necessary):  See affidavit filed with the Concord Family Court.”

2.  The Court’s Ex Parte Order states:

“Findings of Fact:

There is reasonable cause to believe that the child is in such circumstances or surroundings as would present an imminent danger to the child’s health or life, which require the immediate placement of the child for the following reasons:

See attached affidavit”

Thus, the Court’s Order does, in fact, refer to, and adopt all of the reasons given in the Affidavit as being the reasons for the order.

3.  The Attached Affidavit, referenced by the Petitions and adopted by the Court as its findings of fact, includes, at #7:  “The Division became aware and confirmed that Mr. Irish associated with a militia known as the, “Oath Keepers,” and had purchased several different types of weapons, including a rifle, handgun and taser.”

This is how all such petitions are done.  The same goes for a restraining order. The petition is supported by affidavit laying out the reasons, and then if the judge finds those reasons sufficient, he or she issues the order. Such orders always rely on the affidavit attached to the petition.  And in this case, the Order explicitly states that the reasons in support are listed in the “attached affidavit.”

We have posted these documents with the permission of both parents, but we redacted (blacked out) all the personal information and allegations that do not pertain to Oath Keepers or gun ownership.   This was done in part to respect the privacy of the family, including the kids.  It is out of such concerns that family court proceedings are usually closed to the public and I think it would be improper to post the entirety of the affidavit for the same reason.  If the parents choose to post a non-redacted version, they can do it themselves (we left in their address because they have given that information out in several interviews, asking for donations to their defense fund),

More to the point, we also blacked out the parts unrelated to Oath Keepers and to gun ownership because my focus in this case is on the illegitimate listing of a father’s political affiliations and his gun ownership as a reason to take his daughter away from him and also away from her mother.   That the Court relied on an affidavit that explicitly lists the father’s association with Oath Keepers to issue that order makes it important to all ten thousand dues paying members of Oath Keepers (many of them current serving police and military), and also makes it important to the estimated thirty thousand people (and growing) who have “associated” with Oath Keepers in the past, or still do, on several social media sites, such as Facebook, Myspace, Twitter, on our email alert list, in the comments section of our main site, in our free state forums, or in person at our many meetings across the country, and the many additional tens of thousands who have “associated” with us at various rallies, summits, and forums across the nation.

This use of a father’s political association and his gun ownership is also important to many other Americans who don’t even associate with Oath Keepers because what happens in this case can impact the free speech and association rights of all of us, across the nation, of whatever political or social orientation.   And that is why we must stand firm, now.

RALLY FOR THE FIRST AMENDMENT!   This Thursday, October 14, Dover, NH

We will be holding a rally in support of the First Amendment protected right of freedom of association, to be held this Thursday, October 14, at the Rochester Family Division Court, 259 County Farm Rd, Dover, NH 03820-6016.  I will be there, and I am calling on all Oath Keepers, all who “associate” with us, and on all other organizations that stand for the Constitution and for liberty to be there for a peaceful gathering in support of both the due process rights of the parents (who have a hearing there, on that day), but also to stand in support of the rights of free speech and association, free from persecution, for ALL Americans.  I will post more details later today.   Please join us!

Please read the relevant sections of the documents below, and then I will have additional comments on the other side.  – Stewart Rhodes, Founder of Oath Keepers

ADDITIONAL COMMENTS BY STEWART:

As is clear from the documents, the reasons given to the Court in the Petitions, and the reasons adopted by the Court when it adopted the entirety of the attached Affidavit, included John Irish’s association with Oath Keepers.   Certainly it was not the only reason, nor are we even arguing that it was the principle or dominant reason (I can’t get inside the judge’s head, and unless the judge elaborates, we don’t know).

But the fact that the political association of the father with Oath Keepers, and his gun ownership, were even among the reasons given for the taking of this baby takes this case beyond the realm of your mundane family court matter and turns it into something that could affect the rights of us all, nation-wide.  Such a listing of a parent’s political associations as one of the reasons to remove a child from her parents should not happen in any case, regardless of whatever else is going on.

Relevance?

Whether it is a criminal or a civil proceeding, the political affiliations of the accused are both irrelevant and prejudicial.  For example, if I had a criminal defense client accused of beating his wife, what relevance would his NRA membership have to the question of whether he beat his wife?   And what relevance would there be if he were a Tea Party member, or belonged to a 912 group, or was a member of Rush Limbaugh fan club, or a member of Glen Beck’s “Insider Extreme” which includes a message board?   Or what if he were a member of the ACLU, or Answer, or ACORN, or Code Pink, etc.?  What relevance would any such associations have to the question of whether he assaulted his wife?   The political associations of the accused in a child endangerment case are no less irrelevant to the question of whether he or the mother are guilty or whether the child is endangered.

Prejudicial.

In addition to a relevancy problem, it would also be prejudicial for the finder(s) of fact to hear testimony on the suspect’s political association, especially when such may be with an unpopular group.  Say, for example, you have a conservative, pro-drug war jury in a theft case and the defendant turns out to be a member of NORML (which advocates legalizing marijuana).  Should the jury be able to hear evidence of that membership?  Or imagine a liberal jury, with jurors who are anti-gun.  Should the jury be able to hear evidence that the accused was an NRA member, or, perhaps even a member of the far more hardcore Gun Owners of America?  Mention of the defendant’s associations in either case would not only be irrelevant but also potentially prejudicial.  Even if some twisted argument convinced the judge to find those associations relevant, their  prejudicial effect would outweigh any such relevance.  See Rule 403, Federal Rules of Evidence.

http://www.law.cornell.edu/rules/fre/rules.htm

Yes, it is true that in family court one does not get the same level of due process as in a criminal trial, but that only makes it a more likely system to be abused to target political undesirables.  The lower the threshold of due process protection, the more ripe it is for arbitrary abuse.

The Chilling Effect: Making People Afraid to Speak Out and Associate

And in this case the problem is not just a possible violation of the due process rights of these particular parents, but also the very real chilling effect this case will have not just on their speech but also on the free speech of potentially millions of other American parents who will, if this is allowed to stand, thereafter have to worry that their political affiliations will be listed among the reasons for taking their children in some future run-in with CPS.

A law or government practice that targets people for their speech and association, based on the content of their speech, or that MAY be used in such a way, is unconstitutional and harms not just that individual, but also all others who thereafter are “chilled” or dissuaded from engaging in similar speech or associations.

The chilling works even if it is rarely applied since just the knowledge that it can be done will chill speech and association.  All the government needs to do is make an example out of one person, and others will refrain from sticking their necks out.

If it can be done to someone who is “associated” with Oath Keepers just by posting on an open social networking site (In this case John Irish was not even a dues paying member, but merely a forum user on the Oath Keepers Ning forum system, which was open to the general public to “join” for free, even on a whim) then it can happen to anyone from any group which particular authorities may look down upon.

Let’s flip the political paradigm:  Imagine the same thing being done in a case involving members of PETA, Earth First, or the Anti-War Committee (AWC) which recently had their homes and offices raided by the FBI.  Would it be acceptable for Child Protective Services to list those affiliations when investigating potential child abuse or neglect, or would that be both irrelevant, and prejudicial?  And would it not also chill free speech, making people afraid to join those groups?

Think back to how the very arbitrary “no-fly list” was used by the Bush Administration to punish critics and political opposition, including journalists.  Such power is always subject to abuse.  And especially so when the list is secret, and the criteria used to put you on it is secret.  Talk about arbitrary power! But even there, it was not openly and honestly used to target people because of their political associations. That was the wink, wink, nudge, nudge, we all knew was happening, but the Bush Admin knew better than to state it publicly.  But it still had a chilling effect (as was likely intended), because we all knew what was really going on when some journalist critic of the President just happened to make the list.

In this case, it is openly acknowledged that the political association of the father is one of the reasons for taking the child (again, the Court’s Order adopted the entire affidavit as its findings of facts).  Ditto for his perfectly legal gun ownership.  Over half the people in this nation own guns.  Imagine the chilling effect on them.

You Defend the Constitution for Everyone, Regardless of Innocence or Guilt, Regardless of Virtue or Vice

One last point: Too many people are asking “but did he do it.”  In constitutional law, what counts is not whether the particular defendant was an angel or a “dirtbag” – whether he is innocent or committed the underlying offense at issue.  What counts is whether the Constitution is protected.

For example, Ernesto Miranda was suspected of kidnapping and raping of an 18-year-old girl. Because of the Supreme Court ruling, which ruled his confession inadmissible, his first conviction was overturned.  But then the case was retried, leaving out the tainted confession, and Miranda was convicted and served 20 years.  A dirtbag?  You bet.  He was a filthy rapist. Guilty?  Yes, so found by a jury of his peers.  He raped the girl and was rightfully convicted and locked up.  But it was still wrong to coerce his confession, and his case gave us the procedural protection of our “Miranda” rights, which helps to give meaningful effect to our right to remain silent and to not incriminate ourselves, as well as our right to have counsel present at questioning.

The same goes for the case of Jose Padilla, the alleged “Chicago dirty bomber.”  A dirtbag?  Likely.  He as both a former gang member and liked to hang out with Al Qaeda types.  But that still did not make it OK to black bag him with no due process and throw him in a military brig on secret evidence, without indictment, without a lawyer, without a jury trial, for over two years.  That was unconstitutional even if he “did it.” (he was later convicted in a jury trial of aiding Al Qaeda).  Even though a dirtbag, he still had procedural rights that were violated, and those violations set a dangerous precedent for the rest of us. Now, according to the Fourth Circuit (who’s decision still stands as “good law”), that can be done to any of us.   What happens even to “bad guys” can and will affect our rights too.  Rules of due process and protections of free speech and association apply to EVERYONE, not just those who are pure as the driven snow.

Sadly, so dumbed down is the average American that many just cannot grasp these elemental concepts.  In this case, they ask whether the parents are “guilty,” as if that would make it OK to list their political associations or gun owner status as evidence of why they are unfit parents.  If people cannot understand why this cannot be allowed to happen, then how can we restore our Republic?   That is why, regardless of whether the parents are guilty of any of the alleged abuse; the listing of their association with Oath Keepers is illegitimate and must be fought.  And it will.

We Oath Keepers and our many allies will fight this regardless of the supposed validity of the other allegations against the parents.  This use of political associations as evidence is wrong in every case, and in any case.  It is the “weaponization” of CPS – turning it into a weapon against political undesirables.  And that weapon will be used to silence and suppress those who might otherwise speak out, and to silence and suppress those who already have spoken out.  It will thus chill speech even when not used (just by the implied threat that you may be paid a visit by CPS if you get “uppity”), and it will punish speech when used against dissidents who still dare to speak out.

Either you defend the Constitution for everyone, or we may as well just scrap it and let government agencies and judges do whatever they want to those they deem bad, using whatever arbitrary “reasons” they want, like in some third world junta.   The choice is yours.  I hope to see you in New Hampshire, the “Live Free or Die” state on Thursday.

Breaking News: Government Instructing CPS Workers to Kidnap Kids from Oath Keeper Members

Government Instructing CPS Workers to Kidnap Kids from Oath Keeper Members

Americans are growing weary of more governmental radical insanity when this week, John Irish and Stephanie Janvrin had their newborn baby kidnapped from the hospital by New Hampshire Division of Family Child Services, with the help of law enforcement, after citing the parents association with the Oath Keepers organization being the main reason for the snatch-and-grab.  After being lied to and lured into a trap by a hospital nurse, the baby was snatched away from the parents because of their political beliefs. This new precedent screams to the American people who if you are involved in exercising free speech and support the Constitution, the kidnappers are coming for your children and you will be charged with child abuse.

Like a scene out of a horror movie, the parents were tricked when John and Stephanie were told by the Director of Security and the Head Nurse at Concord Hospital that their newborn was going to be taken to the hospital pediatrician to be checked out. They were lied to and deceived under false pretenses and without choice as their baby was turned over to the kidnappers. The baby was then wheeled out in a bassinet as the father was forced to stand up and get patted down. The parents were then told they were taking the baby because they found out that he has association with a group known as the Oath Keepers – a network of current military and law enforcement professionals who have sworn not to obey unconstitutional orders such as gun confiscation, warrantless searches, and mass internment of Americans. In an article by Paul Joseph Watson, John Irish explains the nightmare as they stole his child away…

“They forced me to stand up, held my hands behind my back and patted me down,” said Irish, before police told him they were taking the baby. “My fiancé didn’t even get any time to bond with the baby – they came in and stole our child,” said Irish. The parents were given a couple of minutes with their daughter before being forced by police to leave the hospital. Irish was subsequently told that a “security officer” would follow his every move. The affidavit in support of the decision to take the child, which has been verified by Oath Keepers, states, “The Division became aware and confirmed that Mr. Irish associated with a militia known as the Oath Keepers,” confirming that political beliefs were, amongst other reasons, one of the primary factors behind the snatching of the baby. Even if the additional reasons cited in the affidavit, which are unproven at this time, could be considered sufficient reason for the state to take the baby, the fact that political affiliations were even mentioned is a frightening indictment of how far the government’s war on Americans who dissent against authority has advanced. “Regardless of the other allegations, it is utterly unconstitutional for government agencies to list Mr. Irish’s association with Oath Keepers in an affidavit in support of a child abuse order to remove his daughter from his custody.” writes Oath Keepers founder Stewart Rhodes. “Talk about chilling speech! If this is allowed to continue, it will chill the speech of not just Mr. Irish, but all Oath Keepers and it will serve as the camel under the tent for other associations being considered too risky for parents to dare. Thus, it serves to chill the speech of all of us, in any group we belong to that “officials” may not approve of. Don’t you dare associate with such and such group, or you could be on “the list” and then child protective services might come take your kids.” The parents were not even full members of the Oath Keepers organization, they were merely on a discussion list related to the group. This makes the case even more shocking – you don’t even have to be directly associated with a group that the government deems to be a “militia” to have your baby stolen – you merely have to be involved in online discussions of issues relating to the constitution and freedom in America. Irish’s own web page clearly states that he supports a “NON-violent, law abiding gathering of like minded Patriots,” and that he is “AGAINST ANY acts of violence or illegal activity.”  “The Sons of Liberty Riders does not endorse or tolerate radical, extreme, violent or racial postings,” states the website. The Oath Keepers organization is not a “militia,” as the affidavit claims, it is merely a loose network of current and former military and law enforcement professionals who have sworn not to obey unconstitutional orders such as gun confiscation, warrantless searches and mass internment of Americans. The group is committed to non-violence. If this case is allowed to stand it opens up a hellish future for free speech and political discourse in America. If parents live in fear of having their children stolen by the state because they criticize the government, the United States can rank itself amongst the worst dictatorships in history who invoked the threat of taking people’s children if they spoke out against tyranny. Oath Keepers founder Stewart Rhodes has announced that a legal defense fund will be created to help Irish, and that the organization, “will actively pursue aggressive legal remedy and redress.” “We will assist in locating competent local legal counsel in New Hampshire and additional expert legal counsel from around the country in First Amendment and child custody law,” wrote Stewart on the Oath Keepers website. “There can be no freedom of speech, no freedom of association, no freedom to even open your mouth and “speak truth to power,” no freedom AT ALL, if your children can be black bagged and stolen from you because of your political speech and associations — because you simply dare to express your love of country, and dare to express your solidarity and fellowship with other citizens and with active duty and retired military and police who simply pledge to honor their oath and obey the Constitution. It was to prevent just such outrageous content based persecution of political dissidents that our First Amendment was written.”
