Congressional Briefing on the Failure of Family Courts, Placing Children with Abusive Parents

Dr. Joy Silberg and Others Expose Corrupt Practices of the Family Courts in Abuse Cases

  • 75 percent of all contested custody cases involve abuse of children
  • Court’s fail to recognize the rights of children to live free of abuse
  • Epidemic across the United States
  • Visit http://www.courageouskids.net 
  • It takes on average 5 years to turn around abuse cases
  • Learn about actual cases where abusive parents were given custody and they ultimately killed the child — even when the abusive parent was not the birth parent of the child
  • Turn about occurs most often when a new evaluation is done by a qualified evaluators
  • CPS findings were irrelevant to the outcome
  • The GALs almost exclusively signed with the abusive parent
  • CPS agencies teach their social workers to discount the evidence of abuse when there is a custody dispute
  • Its about the rights of the child, not about the rights of the parents.
  • Abuse is in the news every day; many criminal activities are carried out by children who were abused — we are all affected.
  • Costs 500 billion dollars per year in taxpayer money

If you are being abused, speak out and get your life off “pause.” (Day 8 of 19 Days of Activism)

Among more than 1,400 adult females, childhood...

Listen to these two teenage sisters who were sexually abused by their uncle, a police officer.   They finally spoke out after years of abuse and found that it took their life off “pause.”

“In October, 2011, two sisters, ages 14 and 15, came to StoryCorps to remember confiding in each other about being sexually abused.

The girls’ abuser was their uncle and part-time caretaker.

They recorded this conversation just 10 days after he was found guilty of sexual assault. Their names are withheld to respect their privacy.”

Ariana-Leilani 1Selected facts and figures (UN sources)

  • As many as 150 million girls and 73 million boys worldwide are raped or subject to sexual violence each year, usually by someone in their family circle
  • Between 133 and 275 million children annually are estimated to witness domestic violence. Violence in the family, in the form of harsh punishment, is common in both industrialized and developing countries. Children in all regions have reported the physical and psychological hurt they suffer at the hands of their parents and caregivers
  • Corporal punishment, such as beating and caning is standard practice in schools in a large number of countries, and is often responsible for school drop-outs
  • Between 20 and 65 percent of school-age children report having been verbally or physically bullied • 126 million children and youth are involved in hazardous work, often enduring beatings, humiliation and sexual violence by their employers • Between 80 and 100 million girls are ‘missing’ from the world’s population – victims of gender-based infanticide, foeticide, malnutrition and neglect
  • 1.2 million children are trafficked each year
  • Institutionalized children – whether in orphanages or detention facilities – are at particular risk of violence from the staff responsible for their care, including torture, beatings, isolation, restraints, rape and harassment
  • People who are part of their lives perpetrate the majority of violent acts against children: parents, teachers, schoolmates, employers, and caregivers. In only 29 States has all violence against children been prohibited, leaving the vast majority of the world’s child population without adequate legal protection from violence
  • Violence against children extracts extraordinary costs to society, and is linked to lifelong social and health problems, including post-traumatic stress disorder; depression; antisocial and aggressive behaviors; substance abuse; lung, heart, and liver disease; impaired academic and work performance; problematic peer relations; and greater involvement with the criminal justice system.

Ariana-Leilani Has Suffered from Five Years of Abuse and Neglect, But DC Officials Refuse to Protect Her (Day 2 of 19 Days of Activism)

Day 2 of 19 Days of Activism for the Prevention of Sexual Abuse and Neglect: It is time for the District of Columbia to stop protecting those that abuse and neglect children in the District of Columbia and ignore the human rights of its children.   Ariana-Leilani has been subject to abuse and neglect for five years, test results evidence her being given drugs that can cover up abuse and cause her severe chronic neutropenia.  But the District of Columbia has knowingly allowed her to be subject to such severe abuse and neglect, but has chosen to cover it up rather than protect her.  Unless she is given relief, she is likely to die.

Our Hearts Go Out to the Victims and Families of the DC Navy Yard Tragedy

Map of Washington Navy Yard

Our hearts go out to the victims and families of the DC Navy Yark tragedy on September 17, 2013.

Washington DC has many good things:  monuments, an educated work force, and alot of people who want to do good for others by serving in government.  However, there is a dark side to Washington DC.

Yesterday exposed that dark side, where the system of elaborate security and background checking overlooked and, even gave privileged access to, a seriously mentally disturbed individual who needlessly gunned down dedicated public servants at the Washington Navy Yard.

Janice Orlowski: Doesn't she care about Ariana-Leilani, too?

The gunman, Aaron Alexis, had a history of hearing voices.  He had even been seen by the VA hospital in Washington DC only a month ago — the same hospital where Ariana-Leilani’s father works as a “physician”  and who is failing to take proper care of Ariana-Leilani’s Severe Chronic Neutropenia.    The qualifications for being a physician at a VA hospital are pathetically low, hence the low quality care.  Isn’t it ironic that Dr. Janice Orlowski, who spoke to the press for the Medstar Washington Medical Center, expressed such sympathy for the victims of the shooting, but has shown no sympathy for Ariana-Leilani when Ariana-Lelani’s situation came before Dr. Orlowski as a conflicted member of the Board of Medicine of Washington DC.

We already have 13 people dead because the failings of the VA Hospital and Washington DC to recognize and treat mental illness in one individual.   Will Ariana-Leilani be next victim due to the failings of these institutions?

Question of the Day: Is a Medical Experiment on Ariana-Leilani a Matter of “National Security?”

Graph Showing Worsening Neutropenia Condition of Ariana-Leilani

Worsening Neutropenia Condition of Ariana-Leilani

By all indications, the failure of the USA to 10 year old Ariana-Leilani’s Severe Chronic Neutropenia with the life saving neupogen medicine she needs to boost her critically low ANC to protect her from potentially fatal infection has all the trappings of the medical experiments that hospitals like Medstar Georgetown University Hospital have conducted for the CIA in the past in the name of “National Security.”    Her ANC’s (the measure of her resistance to infection)  continue to be severely low (see graph), yet after five years no toxicology tests have been done to eliminate its cause, and Medstar Georgetown University Hospital continues to engage in this apparent medical “experiment” placing Ariana-Leilani at risk of fatal infection.

Seal of the C.I.A. - Central Intelligence Agen...The recent revelations of the USA’s collection of massive amounts of personal data on its own USA citizens using the FISA court and PRISM programs, in violation of the US Constitution’s right to privacy, and President Obama’s proclamation  today that this wholesale invasion of privacy is “legal” — despite direct conflict with the right to privacy in the USA are very disturbing.

Study: Hospitals ‘Profit Handsomely’ From Surgical Errors

JAMA

A recent study in the JAMA, shows that hospitals profit from surgical errors.

Hospitals nearly triple their profits when they make surgical errors, compared to how much they make when patients don’t suffer harm, according to a new study published in the Journal of the American Medical Association (JAMA).

On average, the hospitals studied reaped an extra $30,500 in profits when a patient developed one or more potentially preventable surgical complications because insurance plans pay more for longer stays and extra care, the study found.

Some surgical mishaps boosted profits by up to $44,000 per patient, reported researchers from the Boston Consulting Group, Harvard, and Texas Health Resources, a large nonprofit hospital system.

The occurrence of postsurgical complications was associated with a higher per-encounter hospital contribution margin for patients covered by Medicare and private insurance but a lower one for patients covered by Medicaid and who self-paid. Depending on payer mix, many hospitals have the potential for adverse near-term financial consequences for decreasing postsurgical complications.

The CIA’s Experiments on Children

The Hidden Tragedy of the CIA's Experiments on Children
(Image: Lance Page / t r u t h o u t😉

Bobby is seven years old, but this is not the first time he has been subjected to electroshock. It’s his third time. In all, over the next year, Bobby will experience eight electroshock sessions. Placed on the examining table, he is held down by two male attendants while the physician places a solution on his temples. Bobby struggles with the two men holding him down, but his efforts are useless. He cries out and tries to pull away. One of the attendants tries to force a thick wedge of rubber into his mouth. He turns his head sharply away and cries out, “Let me go, please. I don’t want to be here. Please, let me go.” Bobby’s physician looks irritated and she tells him, “Come on now, Bobby, try to act like a big boy and be still and relax.” Bobby turns his head away from the woman and opens his mouth for the wedge that will prevent him from biting through his tongue. He begins to cry silently, his small shoulders shaking and he stiffens his body against what he knows is coming.

Many of the experiments used drugs that have known side effects of neutropenia.

One of the commenters writes:

Thank you. I would add that these people were just a few of the many participating as CIA contractors out of Johns Hopkins, Georgetown University Hospital, and other prestigious institutions – always under the radar, of course, which is pretty convenient when you have a mission to be secret and a black budget. For those commenters who find it difficult to believe even after reading such a thoroughly supported article, just consider this was the tip of the iceberg. As for motive, it was ultimately about power and control. How much can the mind be manipulated for the “good” of mankind? How much can the brain and brain development be manipulated? (As was stated, the origins of these programs were in Nazi Germany and brought here thanks to a program called PROJECT PAPERCLIP.) I spent second half of the sixties, from age six to age 10 in a drug-induced daze or throwing up because of the effects of the drugs. My Naval Intelligence father – who had been led to believe I was in a “gifted child” program and was kept in the dark about what was being done – finally made the connection when he had to rush me to the hospital. He pulled me out of the program immediately, and was burned for his trouble and blacklisted for the rest of his life. (I actually had to be sent across the country to a safehouse; it might sound like a movie but I can assure you it was very very real and horrifying.) Our family has waited decades for more of this information to become public, hoping it was only a matter of time. There are good people working in the CIA with genuinely good intentions, but the CIA as an institution is an agent of absolute evil. It only takes one glance at the horror that is Blackwater (and there is a connection, but I won’t go into it here) to understand this.
