Justina Pelletier: Judge Awards ‘Permanent Custody’ To Mass. DFC

justinapelletier7

Judge Joseph Johnston has ruled that The Massachusetts Department of Families And Children (DFC) will have ‘permanent custody’ of 15-year-old Justina Pelletier, taking her away from her parents in spite of her own wishes and her rapidly declining health in state custody.

This case is a textbook example of child abuse promulgated by the legal system and an embedded bureaucracy, and it is worth looking at to see how far out of hand our ruling class has gotten.

Fourteen months ago, Justina, a Connecticut teen was being treated for mitochondrial disease, a group of rare genetic disorders affecting cellular energy production.Her physician who had been treating her, Dr. Mark Korson at Tufts, wanted the girl to visit gastroenterologist Dr. Alejandro Flores at Boston Children’s Hospital, who had treated Justina at Tufts in the past. Being loving and concerned parents, the Pelletiers made the appointment with Dr. Flores and duly went to Boston Children’s Hospital to have Justina seen.

When they got there, instead of seeing Dr. Flores, Justina was essentially kidnapped. She was taken to emergency where a resident refused to let her see Dr. Flores. Instead, he decided that this was a psychiatric case and sent Justina to a psychologist who diagnosed her with somatoform disorder — a mental condition in which a patient experiences symptoms that are real but are psychosomatic.

When the Pelletiers rejected the new psychiatric diagnosis and wanted to bring Justina back to Tufts, the hospital first tried to force the girl’s parents to sign papers admitting her as a psychiatric patient and when they refused and understandably became insistent at taking their daughter out of Boston Children’s, the hospital got the state Department of Family and Children involved and accused the parents of medical child abuse.

They were not permitted to bring Justina home or to another facility. Instead, the teen was kept at Boston Children’s psychiatric ward for nearly a year where her physical condition deteriorated while the parents unsuccessfully fought the system to get Justina released.The DCF has allowed the parents only one hour per week to visit their daughter, but always with DCF personnel present. DCF would not allow the parents to photograph their daughter, and even filed a motion to hold Lou Pelletier in contempt of court for speaking to national media.

“Tufts was working fine with her, diagnosed medically, going to school, ice skating and doing all those things,” Lou Pelletier said. “Look at her then and look at her now.”

The DCF also has refused to provide the medical care Justina’s condition requires, will not allow her access to a priest or to communion (she’s Catholic) has refused to make any accommodations for her education, with the result that she is now almost two years behind her classmates in school.

Three weeks ago, Judge Johnston approved a written agreement transferring care back to Tufts Medical Center from Boston Children’s Hospital. That still hasn’t been done, as Boston Children’s has refused to make any appointments with the doctors there in spite of Justina’s condition.

This decision by Judge Johnston was in response to a motion presented by the 15-year-old’s court-appointed lawyer and the lawyers for her parents, Linda and Lou Pelletier. It called for the girl’s parents to be awarded “conditional custody” of their daughter.

Instead, the judge has granted permanent custody of Justina Pellatier to the DFC…who have done absolutely nothing to help her.

In his order, Johnston noted that the court considered granting conditional custody to the Pelletiers but “very concerning conduct … does not give this court any confidence they will comply with the conditions of custody.” The evidence? That Lou Pelletier once threatened a DFC social worker, who was afterward removed from the case, and oh yes..the media presence.

“Instead of engaging in quality visits with Justina, the parents use profanity directed at MA DCF personnel in Justina’s presence,” Johnston’s ruling said.

Johnston also included that he thinks Lou and Linda Pelletier should be “psychologically and clinically evaluated,” but refused to have the state of Massachusetts do it, insisiting that it must be coordinated through the State of Connecticut’s own DCF.

You bring your daughter in for medical treatment, she gets kidnapped, you see her dying in front of your eyes and you lose it with some heartless bureaucrat drone who’s keeping her prisoner? And when you finally get fed up with doing the dance for months and go to the media to try to shed some sunlight on what’s happening to your child, you need to be “psychologically and clinically evaluated?”

To tell you the truth, if the Pellatiers hadn’t done that, I’d think they needed to be psychologically evaluated.

This is one of those canary in the coalmine moments. It is the State shoving our noses in the fact that they own our children and they know what’s best, and we’re just the sperm and egg donors.

What’s next? On May 25th, Judge Johnston is expected revisit the decision to award permanent custody in a follow-up court hearing on May 25. His ruling leaves it up to the state DCF to decide whether or when Justina should be returned to her family, which means she could end up in state care until she turns 18. If she survives.

Meanwhile, the Pelltiers haven’t given up. They’re appealing the decision and have filed a writ of habeus corpus against Massachusetts for wrongful imprisonment. Hopefully this will get Justina freed by order of the Appellate courts, although it might just be that the attention this is generating could get Justina Pellatier freed sooner..perhaps at the review hearing in May.

Your Castle No More – Serviceman Charged With Murder After Shooting Threatening Intruder

“The poorest man may in his cottage bid defiance to all the forces of the crown. It may be frail – its roof may shake – the wind may blow through it – the storm may enter – the rain may enter – but the King of England cannot enter.” – British Prime Minister William Pitt, the first Earl of Chatham, commenting on the English common law doctrine of a man’s right to be safe in his home, 1763.

Air Force Sergeant Matt Pinkerton was faced with an aggressive intruder who broke into his home at 2:00 AM after being told to leave and threatened his wife and his safety, so he dispatched him with a Glock 9mm.

Believe it or not, the State of Maryland’s position is that Pinkerton should have called 911 and just sat there waiting for the police to arrive instead of defending his wife, himself and his property. And they’re charging him with murder two:

Pinkerton was charged with second-degree murder, manslaughter and use of a firearm in a felony or violent crime.

The state argued that Pinkerton could have called 911.

District Court Judge Jonas Legum reduced Pinkerton’s bond from $1.5 million to $250,000.

Legum said he finds it “amazing” that the statement of probable cause against Pinkerton is only two pages long, and included only one sentence about whether or not Green had a weapon.

Pinkerton told police he did not see any weapons in Green’s hands, charging documents state.

Green had staked out the Pinkertons’ home before they arrived early Sunday morning, O’Neill said. When Green knocked on the door, Pinkerton retrieved a Glock 17 9mm handgun, put it in his back pocket and went to see who it was, police said. He wasn’t expecting any visitors.

When Pinkerton opened the door, he found Green on the porch, police said. Green demanded to see Jessica Pinkerton.

Matthew Pinkerton told Green to leave, but he refused and started to shout, police said.

The pair exchanged “derogatory” remarks before Pinkerton closed the front door, police said. Green continued to yell from the front porch, police said.

Pinkerton then heard his screen door being opened, police said. He headed back to the front door as Green broke through it, damaging the door frame, O’Neill said.

Pinkerton pulled his gun and ordered Green to leave, O’Neill said.

Green continued into the residence and was shot twice by Pinkerton, police said.

“He has the right to defend himself against an intruder,” O’Neill said.

Assistant State’s Attorney Glen Neubauer said Pinkerton could have called the police. When Pinkerton grabbed his gun, it was “bizarre behavior in itself,” Neubauer said.

But O’Neill said calling 911 wasn’t an option.

“By the time 911 is called, he’s dead,” O’Neill said.

This should put the citizens of Maryland and other locales where anti-Second Amendment radicals have taken control on notice as to what the lives of you and your loved ones are worth to the politicians in power.

How Obama Leans On Whistleblowers And Intimidates Reporters

My friend and Council mate Debra Heine over at Nice Deb has a fine piece over at Breitbart I recommend to your attention..here’s a slice:

When Obama was elected in 2008, his ascension to the White House was deemed “historic” because he was our first black president, and Americans were rightly proud of that. Unfortunately, Obama has been a “historic” president in other ways, too – ways that should horrify and alarm Americans. His administration’s brazen efforts to silence whistleblowers, intimidate reporters and businesses that don’t play ball with him have been unprecedented. We are living through highly troubling times.

This White House has a long track record of bullying reporters as a tactic to ensure only positive coverage and suppress free speech. And Obama has used the DOJ as a political arm to enforce allegiance to his agenda.

Keith Koffler, who has covered the Bush and Clinton White Houses, as well as the Obama White House has written at length about the Regime’s bullying tactics.

When White House officials, particularly members of the press office, see a story they don’t like, they often call and verbally abuse the reporter who wrote the piece.

In diatribes often peppered with obscenities, they complain of profound injustice, bias, lack of relevance – anything they can think of to get reporters to back off their story.
It’s not just a series of uncontrolled outbursts. It is a planned, methodical, and highly artificial effort to either squash a story or get inside a reporter’s head so they think twice about doing a piece next time that negatively impacts Obama.

That this is an actual policy is evident from the consistency of the practice and its implementation by nearly every member of the White House press office staff. They are all nice, affable people who suddenly switch into an unmarked gear and begin running you over at full speed.

Koffler noted that he’s “seen this done by press people from the Bush and Clinton administrations. But only on rare occasion, and generally with a legitimate grievance in hand. But never have I witnessed this type of bullying of the press in such a systematic, intense, and frequent manner.”

Because the examples of this are legion, I thought it would be a good idea to aggregate a number of these stories in one spot. These are not isolated incidents. They are the result of purposefully thuggish policies perpetrated by nasty, thuggish people. It’s the sort of thing you would see in a third world Banana Republic.

Backdoor Gun Grab – EPA Forces Closure Of Last Lead Smelter In U.S.

102913.jpg

The Left badly wants American citizens disarmed and denied their Second Amendment rights, and they’ll achieve that by any means necessary…including using Obama Environmental Protection Agency to severely impact the price of ammo:

In December, the final primary lead smelter in the United States will close. The lead smelter, located in Herculaneum, Missouri, and owned and operated by the Doe Run Company, has existed in the same location since 1892.
The Herculaneum smelter is currently the only smelter in the United States which can produce lead bullion from raw lead ore that is mined nearby in Missouri’s extensive lead deposits, giving the smelter its “primary” designation. The lead bullion produced in Herculaneum is then sold to lead product producers, including ammunition manufactures for use in conventional ammunition components such as projectiles, projectile cores, and primers. …

Doe Run made significant efforts to reduce lead emissions from the smelter, but in 2008 the federal Environmental Protection Agency issued new National Ambient Air Quality Standards for lead that were 10 times tighter than the previous standard. Given the new lead air quality standard, Doe Run made the decision to close the Herculaneum smelter.

Meanwhile, the Obama Administration and SWAT teams attached to non-military or police governmental agencies like Fish and Game or the EPA itself have purchased billions of rounds of ammo for themselves…and are training their agents to shoot first and ask question later when it comes to what are euphemistically called ‘non-traditional targets’ like pregnant women, children and the elderly.

Of course, ammo can be imported, and there are shooters who roll their own and save their cases,but the idea is to deplete the supply of available ammo and make it horrendously expensive. Look for arcane ‘taxes’ on ammo purchases as well, something California and other Democrat run states are already salivating over.

The national security implications of this are pretty staggering as well. If we get involved in a shooting war in the next three years, there will be a significant delay before facilities like Doe Run can tool up and start production again.

But that’s not the primary concern of the Obama Administration. Their focus seems to be on maintaining the ability to guard the elites and impose tyranny from within.

Obama Lied, Knew Millions Would Lose Their Health Insurance

By now,most Americans are beginning to understand that when President Obama told Americans that if they liked their doctor, their present health plan, they’d be able to keep it, it simply wasn’t true.

However, as we’re now finding out, it goes far beyond that. The president deliberately lied, knowingly lied, along with his team.

In another, astonishing random act of journalism, NBC, of all places revealed that ObamaCare was deliberately constructed to destroy the health coverage of millions of Americans and force them on to government exchanges, with much less coverage and far higher premiums. And this president knew it all along:

Four sources deeply involved in the Affordable Care Act tell NBC NEWS that 50 to 75 percent of the 14 million consumers who buy their insurance individually can expect to receive a “cancellation” letter or the equivalent over the next year because their existing policies don’t meet the standards mandated by the new health care law. One expert predicts that number could reach as high as 80 percent. And all say that many of those forced to buy pricier new policies will experience “sticker shock.”

None of this should come as a shock to the Obama administration. The law states that policies in effect as of March 23, 2010 will be “grandfathered,” meaning consumers can keep those policies even though they don’t meet requirements of the new health care law. But the Department of Health and Human Services then wrote regulations that narrowed that provision, by saying that if any part of a policy was significantly changed since that date — the deductible, co-pay, or benefits, for example — the policy would not be grandfathered.

Buried in Obamacare regulations from July 2010 is an estimate that because of normal turnover in the individual insurance market, “40 to 67 percent” of customers will not be able to keep their policy. And because many policies will have been changed since the key date, “the percentage of individual market policies losing grandfather status in a given year exceeds the 40 to 67 percent range.”

That means the administration knew that more than 40 to 67 percent of those in the individual market would not be able to keep their plans, even if they liked them.

Yet President Obama, who had promised in 2009, “if you like your health plan, you will be able to keep your health plan,” was still saying in 2012, “If [you] already have health insurance, you will keep your health insurance.”

“This says that when they made the promise, they knew half the people in this market outright couldn’t keep what they had and then they wrote the rules so that others couldn’t make it either,” said Robert Laszewski, of Health Policy and Strategy Associates, a consultant who works for health industry firms. Laszewski estimates that 80 percent of those in the individual market will not be able to keep their current policies and will have to buy insurance that meets requirements of the new law, which generally requires a richer package of benefits than most policies today.

Actually, Laszewski estimates that as many as 16 million Americans will lose their health insurance because of ObamaCare.

Note the part I emphasized.Any changes made to your existing policy after March 23, 2010 when this tyranny became law disqualified it to be grandfathered, even if they were choices you made yourself, such as eliminating coverage for maternity care if you or your spouse was past childbearing age, eliminating an adult child from your policy because he or she obtained his or her own insurance, or increasing the co-pay for yourself and your employees slightly to keep costs down or added more employees to your policy. It doesn’t matter…even if you are perfectly satisfied with your coverage as it is, your insurance company will be told your policy doesn’t meet ObamaCare standards and that cancellation letter will go out informing you that you no longer have health insurance come January 2014.

The Democrats are busily spinning this and trying to blame the insurances companies, since the companies are the ones issuing the cancellation letters. But the truth of the matter is they have little choice in the matter. Unless you are employed by a very large company or government agency (like a city or state bureaucracy) that can afford to absorb the expense of compliance with ObamaCare’s arcane requirements because they can spread the cost out among a large group of employees, or unless your employer is politically connected enough to get a waiver or a subsidy like members of the governing class, you are likely to lose your insurance because private companies will be unable to absorb the cost of insuring small groups or families with individualized coverage.

Once you’re forced to shop the exchanges, you’ll discover what so many Americans already have… the sticker price of ObamaCare’s Bronze coverage,the cheapest available with the highest deductible and the lowest sticker price is still going to cost a family of five, two adults and three children, in excess of $20,000 per year. And that’s a conservative estimate, guaranteed to go up as more and more healthy young adults opt to pay the penalty and the system needs more taxpayer dollars to cover the medicaid patients whom qualify for the subsidies.They’re signing up for ObamaCare in droves, and are the vast majority of those signing up for the exchanges. There’s always an unlimited demand for free stuff at someone else’s expense.

That also applies if you are fortunate enough to get your insurance through a very large company or government agency. Your time is coming. While you may not lose your insurance outright, at least at first, you can expect vast increases in your co-payments to cover the cost of ObamaCare compliance.

Even worse, since ObamaCare does not allow any payments to ‘out of network’ doctors whatsoever, all it’s going to take is a heart attack, a burst appendix, a car accident or a similar emergency where immediate treatment is required at the closest available facility to put the average American into bankruptcy.

ObamaCare’s failure is what was planned from the start, with the resulting misery and chaos ending with millions of Americans being herded in single payer and the Sovietization of America’s healthcare.

The president bloviated a great deal about being a ‘warrior for the middle class’ during the 2012 campaign. Given what he knew about ObamaCare at the time, the term ‘rapist’ would have been more appropriate. Including the part about the desire for power, domination and control. We’ve already seen how the president used the IRS to attack his political enemies. Imagine what will happen when they have access to all your data and can decide who gets a medical procedure and how long they wait to receive it based on how you voted or whom you donated to.

No wonder the president lied about it.

Guess What? Obamacare Provision Will Allow Forced Home Inspections

 http://media.nbcnewyork.com/images/654*368/staten+island+home+invasion.jpg

Yet again, proof that no one in Congress actually read ObamaCare before inflicting it on us – least of all our Supreme Court.

According to this provision of ObamaCare, millions of American homes will be subject to forced government inspections, whether they like it or not.

 The HHS website states that under this provision, (or any other subsequent guidelines they come up with at the Secretary of HHS’s discretion), you and your family can and will be targeted, especially if you fall into one of these designated ‘high risk categories’:

  • Families where mom is not yet 21.
  • Families where someone is a tobacco user.
  • Families where children have low student achievement, developmental delays, or disabilities.
  • Families with individuals who are serving or formerly served in the armed forces, including such families that have members of the armed forces who have had multiple deployments outside the United States.
  • It’s no stretch to see where these could be ‘expanded’ based on your political beliefs and affiliations, ownership of a firearm, whether your children are home schooled, or any other criteria determined to be ‘at risk’.

    There is no reference to Medicaid being the determinant for a family to be eligible for one of these government sponsored home invasions. And $224 million of your tax dollars have been set aside top fund what is referred to as home visiting programs to “help parents and children.”

    Fourth amendment be damned. And Congress is actually debating over defunding this.letting alone repealing this blatant tyranny?

    Guess What? Obamacare Provision Will Allow Forced Home Inspections

    Yet again, proof that no one in Congress actually read ObamaCare before inflicting it on us – least of all our Supreme Court.

    Frightening ObamaCare Diktat – a Huge HHS Data Base For Federally Funded ‘Community Organizers

     

    President Obama does have plans for one kind of job creation – a huge army of ‘community organizers’ working for the Department of Health and Human Services who will assist people in enrolling in ObamaCare, applying for a myriad of federal benefits, and of course registering these recipients of government largess as Democrats.

    And they’ll be assisted by something the president and HHS chief Kathleen Sebelius are also creating, a huge consolidation of personal information known as the Federal Data Hub.

    The new Federal Data Hub is designed to give these new “patient navigators” access to mountains of of personal information compiled by federal agencies, including the IRS, the Department of Defense, the Veterans Administration, and the Social Security Administration among others.

    When you find out more about these “patient navigators” and how they’re being hired and trained, it gets even worse.

    In May, the House Oversight and Government Reform Committee were told by HHS that there will be no criminal background checks required for the these new patient navigators. They won’t even be required to have to have high-school diplomas, and at between $20 and $48 per hour, they’re going to be some of the best paid dropouts in America.

    The fact that convicted felons could be getting their hands on your tax returns, Social Security numbers and every bit of your personal data doesn’t concern them.

    According to the HHS, all the new navigators will have to do is to take a 20–30 hour online course about how the 1,200-page law works. If you thought things like fraud and identity theft were a problem before, just wait.

    Nine U.S. Senators led by Utah’s Orrin Hatch wrote to Sebelius, “The standards proposed by your department could result in a convicted felon receiving federal dollars and gaining access to confidential taxpayer information. The same standards allow any individual who has registered with the exchange and completed two days of training to facilitate enrollment, as if the decision to purchase health insurance is similar to the decision of registering to vote.”

    Ah, but that’s a part of the goal here, to the point that this could almost be called the ACORN employment Act. Just like ACORN, the idea will be to register low information Democrats while discarding Republican registrations, and a number of politicians in Blue States have already begun working to facilitate it. In California, for instance, California’s Democrat Secretary of State Debra Bowen has already designated Covered California, the ObamaCare health exchange as a voter registration agency under the National Voter Registration Act. So Covered California will be incorporating voter registration into every transaction it has with consumers…assisted of course by those helpful “patient navigators” .

    The secondary goal of this monstrosity ought to be self-evident by now. This Federal Data Hub will destroy any vestige of privacy for millions of Americans, putting all of your personal details in one place within easy reach of thousands of anonymous federal apparatchniks.

    And as we’ve seen with IRS-Gate, the implications are fairly staggering.Need that kidney transplant? Oh, your tax returns show you donated to the wrong people, so you go to the back of the line. Registered Republican? Big GOP donor??? Let’s cross reference and flag this file for an audit by our co-workers over at the IRS. Ex-military, got some counseling after a rough divorce? Let’s flag this file so he’s not allowed to own or buy a gun. Oh here’s a registered Democrat who’s never donated yet? Let’s hit him with an e-mail barrage.

    This is one of the parts of ObamaCare Nancy Pelosi famously told us that”we’d have to pass the bill to see what’s in it.”

    Americans by and large have no clue about this. Congress needs to make this a lot more public than it is, scream bloody murder and get this repealed.

    IRS admits targeting political opposition groups with extra harrassment.

    In from Drudge, a link to an AP story. IRS admitting it targeted conservative groups for extra audits and harassment.

    This type of abuse is a systemic and unavoidable side affect of the income tax system. It will always be abused to target political opposition.

    The Internal Revenue Service inappropriately flagged conservative political groups for additional reviews during the 2012 election to see if they were violating their tax-exempt status, a top IRS official said Friday.

    Organizations were singled out because they included the words “tea party” or “patriot” in their applications for tax-exempt status, said Lois Lerner, who heads the IRS division that oversees tax-exempt groups.

    In some cases, groups were asked for their list of donors, which violates IRS policy in most cases, she said.

    She wants to apologize for using the overwhelming power of a corrupt government agency to deliberately target her boss’s political enemies during an active campaign season.

    THIS IS WHAT TYRANNY LOOKS LIKE.

    Veterans are receiving letters from VA prohibiting the ownership or purchase of firearms

    Disturbing Report: Veterans are receiving letters from VA prohibiting the ownership or purchase of firearms…

    Written By Constitutional Attorney Michael Connelly, J.D.

    How would you feel if you received a letter from the U.S. Government informing you that because of a physical or mental condition that the government says you have it is proposing to rule that you are incompetent to handle your own financial affairs? Suppose that letter also stated that the government is going to appoint a stranger to handle your affairs for you at your expense? That would certainly be scary enough but it gets worse.

    What if that letter also stated: “A determination of incompetency will prohibit you from purchasing, possessing, receiving, or transporting a firearm or ammunition. If you knowingly violate any of these prohibitions, you may be fined, imprisoned, or both pursuant to the Brady Handgun Violence Prevention Act, Pub.L.No. 103-159, as implemented at 18, United States Code 924(a)(2).”?
