The American CPS ‘skimming’ tool is called a risk assessment. Under the Adoption and Safe Families Act, the primary concern is now the ‘safety of the child.’ Thus, the mere speculative risk of abuse or neglect satisfies the legal requirements to take custody of children without any evidence of abuse or neglect. This country has effectively legalized the separation of parent and child against the will of both parents and children.
There is a virtual army of people out there looking for children to target. Under mandated reporting laws, anyone who has regular contact with children (teachers, counselors, doctors, dentists, etc.) are required to report suspected child abuse or neglect. The schools are especially effective at reporting suspected child abuse or neglect. This is not based on statutory definitions but on subjective assessments. They will also provide caseworker access to the children in the school and allow the caseworker to legally ‘kidnap’ the children from the school without notifying the parents, no questions asked. Hospital emergency rooms also provide many children for CPS (Medical Kidnapping).
There appears to be a regulated scheme for determining which children are taken and which are not regardless of statutory requirements. They seem to be coming after them with reckless abandon. It depends on the unqualified opinion of the caseworker, many of whom falsify reports in order to support their claims. The children are subjected to intimidating and often professionally incompetent questions by the caseworkers. They will use coercion, threats, leading questions and even lies in order to validate the report of abuse. They excuse these tactics by rationalizing that a child often is unwilling to disclose abuse and they must use pressure to extract an accusation. They also object vehemently to having all interrogations videotaped stating that it would traumatize the child. What it would do is expose their incompetence and predispositions.
The laws do not allow a caseworker to take a child without a court order. Only police can do that. However, under the color of law, they will often take the children by force. Parents routinely report their children being dragged, screaming, from their arms without having been presented with any evidence of abuse or neglect. Midnight raids on unsuspecting, sleeping families are not uncommon. In fact, they happen more often than not. If an agency suspects the parents might resist their requests to question the children, SWAT teams have been used to circumvent the Fourth Amendment in Utah and other states.
Michigan is actually considering legislation that allows force if a parent asserts their constitutional rights, which is being defined as uncooperative, or charge them with the waste basket misdemeanor charge of ‘Hindering police duty’. One Arizona mother held a police SWAT team off for 24 hours until they jumped her and took her toddler by force. All criminal charges were dropped but she never got her daughter back. It is evidenced by her frantic initial phone call to an associate which was audio taped before her phone lines were cut. This demonstrated her fear as the police kicked their way into her home and pulled weapons on her as she was nursing her baby.
Turning children against their parents
We must remember that an important element in brainwashing anyone involves extreme trauma. It does not take much in order to traumatize a child. It is done simply by denying them their mother and father. From ‘Of Pure Blood’, “When children were taken for Germanization, “Psychological methods were used to make a child forget or even hate their parents. They would be told they were dead and there was nothing honorable about the way they died. They would tell the children stories like their mother was guilty of doubtful morality and died of tuberculosis or alcoholism or some other shameful disease while the father died of cancer or alcoholism or had been killed by Polish bandits.”
The object was to give the child a sense of inferiority about its origins and of gratitude to the Germans who had rescued them from the degeneracy of their home environment. In the German Federal Republic we meet a young woman whom, at the age of five had been taken to a church by the Germans. She was then shown a bishop’s coffin and told it was her mother’s. Some years later, the child was traced but she refused to go back to her mother whom had survived deportation, “I had stood in front of my mother’s coffin once. I did not want to have to go through that ever again.”
Sigismund Krajeski, born in Poznan on April 17, 1933, told Hillel and Henry, “I was taken by force from my family on 20 May 1943.” He went on to describe what they were told by the Nazis, “The child would be told his parents were dead and that he was going to get new ones.” Mrs. Witaszek, survivor of Auschwitz, whose 4 and 6 year-old daughters were adopted when she was arrested, “Years afterwards my younger daughter told me she had often been kept awake at night, wondering why I had sold her to a foreign family. Did I have so little money that I had to sell her? Children at that age were simply incapable of understanding what had happened to them.”
Kidnapped Aryan children would be subjected to intensive German language classes and were forbidden to speak their native language after a couple of weeks. Discipline was described as ‘very, very strict.’ Children who refused Germanization had to stay in the chapel, “In the dark on their knees with their arms crossed for hours, they wept, and soon fainted. They were punished like that for saying something in Polish or talking about their parents. They were beaten and deprived of food. Apart from that, the children were always sad. They lived in fear and were homesick.”
Many do not believe we would treat our children so harshly in America. To those, I suggest that they talk to the children who have been ‘protected’ by CPS agencies. There are several reports that have interviewed many former and current foster children. In the most benign cases, the children are often punished by exasperated foster parents when they cry for their mom and dad by being sent to isolation in their rooms. Children report being punished with isolation and withholding of food for praying to be returned home. They are denied affection and understanding and feel depressed, homesick and frightened. When they see their parents, they often act out after the visit out of their natural frustration and desperation of wanting to go home. They perceive it to be unfair and cruel. As a result, they are punished by being denied their next visit with their parents.
They describe being told that their parents are unable to take care of them due to the fact their parents are ‘sick’ and need help and that it is not safe for them to live with their parents. Many children are told that their parents are not trying hard enough to complete the case plan and the children live in uncertainty as to what their future holds for them. They are actually told that their parents do not want them or cannot afford to keep them. Children report that they are told their mothers are prostitutes or drug addicts when they know it is false information.
They are psychologically manipulated until they begin to believe. They begin to resent their parents’ failures and imperfections that prevent reunification. But many of them are ultimately diagnosed with Reactive Attachment Disorder and others similar emotional problems as a direct result of state efforts to undermine their bonds with their parents, otherwise known as the worse form of child abuse known to man – Parental Alienation Syndrome.
Parental Alienation Syndrome
One young boy in Elbert County, Colorado under the supervision of caseworker Holly Sielaff was repeatedly forced to deal with the ‘issue’, under the guise of therapy, that his mother had cross-dressed him. The child had no memory of said event and mom denied doing it. He reports he was verbally abused by his therapist during his court-ordered therapy sessions for his refusal to admit that his mother forced him to wear girls clothing. Sielaff then reported to his mother in this reporter’s presence and on tape in which was addressing this issue ‘because it was the child’s reality and whether or not it was true, it must be treated as if it were true.
Since mom was forbidden to speak of the allegation to her son, she never learned that he consistently denied it until he was returned home. Many children are not strong enough to resist this kind of abusive psychological pressure. Many of the children I have spoken with have been runaway foster children. They are promised that if they accuse, they will be allowed to return home and the state will provide ‘help’ to their parents. If they do make a false accusation based on these promises, they are often denied all access to their parents. This isolation from their parents is used in the vast majority of cases.
Besides being used to emotionally traumatize the children to make them more receptive to state suggestions, it also has the effect of preventing the child from reporting to his parents any problems, lies or abuses that are being covered up by state agencies under confidentiality laws and ‘in the best interests of the child.’ If children in state custody are fortunate enough to see their parents, it is usually under supervision, where their every word is scrutinized.
They are forbidden to hug, to whisper, or to display any affection. They are forbidden to speak about what happens in their foster home and to even report any abuse they suffer there. Many parent-child bonding rituals that have been established in the home, such as singing favorite songs or tickling games are forbidden between the parents and children during these visits for the sole purpose to give themselves a false sense of superiority and for the children and parents to have a false sense of inferiority and/or undefined reasons.
There are documented cases where the psychological experts and caseworkers not only actively subvert the parent-child bond, but actually employ dubious and traumatic methods in order to brainwash the child to bond to his foster parents. In one instance, a five-year-old child in Weld County, Colorado was forcefully ‘regressed’ to infancy by being placed in diapers and forced to break potty training, forced to crawl rather than walk, fed only from a bottle and denied all access to her mother in an effort to make this child bond to her foster parents. The mother’s act of abuse? She fell asleep after major surgery with her toddler at home, having been denied daycare assistance by Social Services until she recovered, and the child got into a bottle of Tylenol in mom’s purse.
Treatment was not provided at the hospital for the alleged overdose in spite of mom’s timely response to the emergency. The most heinous of tactics is to place the child in residential treatment. This often happens to children who are resistant to caseworker indoctrination and especially where there is a risk the child will divulge a truth that is damaging to the caseworker, the CPS agency, the Guardian ad Litem (GAL) or other service provider. Often, caseworkers will predetermine a ‘diagnosis’ of the child in order to facilitate this placement. They can find an ‘expert’ who will validate the diagnosis and present this information to an unsuspecting court or a court who acts with complicity. The court will order the child to the residential treatment facility where they are often over-medicated. This over-medicating renders them more susceptible to suggestion and compliance; at the expense of the emotional well-being of the child.
Since the facility is only provided with the state’s version of the child’s history, the treatment is based on that tainted information. In Pueblo County, Colorado, there is a story of a young boy who has been institutionalized for four years at La Junta Boys Ranch based on a caseworker diagnosis of psychotic behavior. Mom has been unable to obtain a release for the child, and all reports of the brutality he suffered at the hands of the staff are covered up. He finally had endured all he could and killed some of the turkeys on the ranch. He was shipped to the State Hospital in Pueblo, where for over a month the doctors there insisted he was not psychotic and that he had been misdiagnosed and improperly medicated.
The caseworker began lobbying for the original diagnosis due to the fact, ‘she would lose the funding for him if he were not psychotic.’ The doctors at the State Hospital finally began to capitulate under funding pressure. Meanwhile, this child, now 15, clings to his mother during visits and the doctors are telling him that it is inappropriate; thus denying him this only comfort in his life. This child has been sacrificed on the alter of psycho babble disguised as child protection. Too many foster children would never have been forced to endure such levels of psychological abuse at the hands of their parents from whom the state was ‘protecting’ them from.
American ‘social workers’ and Nazi ‘brown sisters’
The women charged with kidnapping children in Nazi occupied territories were called the “Brown Sisters.” Actually, these women belonged to the NSV, established in 1933 in order to devote themselves to the welfare of the German people…For those who suffered under them, these fanatical Nazi women, completely dedicated to the Fuhrer, are remembered as even more loathsome than the killers of the SS or the SD; stony-hearted robots was one description. The sight of these women – brutally snatching from their mother’s arms a baby whom was smiling at her – remains an intolerable memory to those who experienced it.
‘Of Pure Blood’ recalls, “The special training of the ‘Brown Sisters’ included intensive courses in which they were taught the racial criteria by which Nordics could infallibly be distinguished. They were instructed on how to observe a child without being noticed themselves. They were also taught ways of abducting children from the street, from home or from school.” Caseworkers in America also receive highly specialized training pertaining to popular culture parenting techniques, child abuse, child abuse prevention and more, all based on theory rather than science. They are trained on the job to put their uneducated subjective opinion theories into practice, with children and families being the guinea pigs. The good ones become disgusted in short order and leave for greener pastures, usually not saying anything, but sometimes we get lucky enough where there will be a whistleblower. Usually that moral courage is extremely rare in society today.
Many ‘protected’ children actively express hate towards the caseworkers who control their lives and their access to their parents. Once free of caseworker control, they often vent their anger in very expressive ways. I have one pair of sisters who opened up in front of a video camera with threats and gestures all directed at their Arapahoe County, Colorado caseworker, Dawn Shields. They accused Shields of lying in order to obtain the court order terminating their parental rights.
All of the children I have spoken to express the highest level of disdain, distrust and anger toward their caseworkers and GALs. Parents universally describe caseworkers as heartless, soulless, evil, deceitful, arrogant, two-faced and of this nature. I have personally seen caseworkers utter the most vicious false statements against parents on the witness stand in court; then embrace the numb parents in the hall with apologies for what she ‘had’ to do to them. This feigned concern for the parents is abhorrent. At least the Nazis were honest about their bigotry and evil plans.
I have had more than one caseworker tell parents I advocate for, “I am sorry for your son being taken, but that was years ago. Get over it.” It is incomprehensible to a parent that anyone could be so callous and heartless to even consider they would ever ‘get over’ having their child kidnapped by the state for whatever length of time, especially if the parent-child relationship was destroyed as a result. This attitude clearly demonstrates their lack of understanding of the depths of the bonds that exist between parent and child and how their meddling is, too often, more destructive than helpful.
For an indication of the state of mind of the affected families decades after the children were taken, let us focus again on ‘Of Pure Blood,’ “Parents did everything possible to trace children who were unaware of their existence and will never know the distress the absence still causes. In some Polish villages, the grief is still so vivid after thirty years that one ends by wondering how such a thing can be possible.” It is not unreasonable to presume that the pain inflicted by contemporary caseworkers will be comparable and equally unforgettable for millions of American parents.
This pain is compounded in many cases by the caseworkers’ casual use of deceit and manipulation of their undeserved credibility with the court in order to win their cases. Many parents not only despise caseworkers, but hate the people they themselves have become as a result of their constant, unpleasant and threatening contact with these toxic bureaucrats. As a result of these abuses, there is little sympathy from victimized families for caseworkers who are assaulted and killed in the course of their work.
Abused while in state custody
In one indoctrination home where children were taken before being sent for adoption to Nazi families, there is a cemetery in which most of the graves are of ‘victims of Nazi barbarism’. Tadeus Martyn, a member of the Polish commission for Hitlerite Crimes, told the authors about a child named Zygmunt Swiatlowski: “He was taken from his parents against their will at Poznan and brought here…He felt himself to be Polish and would not be Germanized. One day, after refusing to greet a German in German, he was killed on the spot by the woman in charge of the invitation, Johanna Sander. The children who died in the home were buried anonymously, but the German who buried Zygmunt revealed his name to the Polish woman caretaker of the cemetery. So this grave remains the only memorial to the martyrdom of Polish children and Kalisz.”
Alycia Sosinka, born at Lodz in 1935, taken from her Mother in September 1942 detailed, “For months, when my adoptive mother came to tuck me in at night, I used to jump out of bed and stand at attention due to abuses suffered during my indoctrination period.” When a Lebensborn home tended by SS ‘nurses’ was liberated by allied forces, a nun who was subsequently charged with caring for the children observed, “These children did not know what tenderness was. They were used to being in bed or living in groups, and were frightened of any grown-ups who approached them…The older children, the three and four-year-olds, could not talk due to the severe trauma of being ripped from their parents in such a cruel and unspeakable way. They merely expressed them onomatopoeically, like young animals.”
That is typical of children brought up in institutions. They were also showing regression in mental development when in comparison with children of their same peer group. According to the Department of Health and Human Services statistics, approximately 50% of the children who die of child abuse, die in foster care. Children in foster care are also subjected to more severe abuse in foster homes than they ever endured in their own homes. The Denver Post began a five-part series of articles exposing the unsafe nature of foster care on May 21, 2000. They report that abuses are perpetrated by foster parents, biological children of foster parents, and other foster children. This finding supports the overwhelming number of reports of foster care abuse nationwide received by parents and family rights advocacy groups. This has been reported over and over again over 2 decades, and it keeps falling upon deaf ears. The truth makes people uncomfortable. It must be too much to ask for people to stand up and fight for children that are being abused and tortured, and being sold into sex trafficking rings.
Government employees and contractors are above the law
In the summer of 1999, Colorado Governor Bill Owens commissioned a task force to look into the foster care and child welfare issues such as the deaths of four children, three of whom were in foster care. The task force returned their findings early on in the year 2000, months prior to the Denver Post series. Nothing has been done by the Colorado Department of Human Services (DHS) in order to ensure that children are in safer conditions in state custody, as opposed to in the homes they were removed from.
