Did Pfizer Bribe Its Way Out of Criminal Charges in Nigeria?

Did Pfizer Bribe Its Way Out of Criminal Charges in Nigeria?

On Day 12 of WikiLeaks's release of U.S. State Department cables, the daily drip, drip, drip of diplomatic secrets implicated the pharmaceutical industry. The company was Pfizer, the country was Nigeria, and the context was the long-simmering, still-bitter aftermath of the drug giant's quick-and-dirty 1996 trials of an experimental antibiotic for children during a devastating meningitis outbreak. A truly chilling cautionary tale of industry-funded clinical trials in the developing world, this event is recalled in the West mainly as the inspiration for John le Carré's evil-pharma thriller The Constant Gardener.

How To Become a Foster Parent

OMFG.

This is what we call foster parent recruitment propaganda. This is the creation and spreading of misinformation to the gullible by somebody who needs to get a life.

You see folks, they are looking for the gullible because that is the kind of person who becomes a foster parent. What, do you honestly believe that good people with half a clue would participate in the warehousing of children for such a corrupt and fraudulent system as the Child Protective Industry?

No! The Child Protective Industry prefers the type of person who doesn't understand that they're getting screwed like a real parent.



Being a foster parent can be as rewarding for you as for the children. Make sure you’re ready and qualified for the challenge.

LK

Please post this. I had to remove the name of the advocate from the e-mail.

Below, is an email I received from the Ontario Provincial Advocates Office, today December 27, 2010.

All this time we thought that the Advocate wants and needs mandate over CAS and then this advocate from the Provincial Advocates office sends me this e-mail after speaking to her supervisor about my question.

My question was: can the advocates office help me get back a program that was canceled while my son was in care of CAS when CAS are no longer involved and my son is back in our care?

The advocate's office has told me for the past year and a half, that they can not help or advocate for my severely autistic son while he is in the care of CAS because my son can not speak "ask for help" from them. Now, their telling me that I have to file a complaint against CAS through CFSRB even when CAS is no longer involved.

Under what grounds would I file a complaint against CAS if they are no longer involved?

AND

Since when does the advocate not provide advocate services for special needs children and their families who are trying to access services and programs?

Perhaps someone out there can assist..... make sense of this.

It makes no sense to start a second war with CAS by filing a complaint against them through FCSRB when it is clearly the mandate and job of the provincial advocate to advocate for services and programs.....especially for special needs children.

Psychiatry—Labeling Kids with Bogus 'Mental Disorders'



There is only one mental health disorder: Psychiatristentia Delusiono Grandeur Disorder (PDGD) Suffers believe themselves to be the sole arbiters of mental health and they compulsively invent new names for mental health disorders and then accuse people of suffering from them. These are seriously disturbed and dangerous individuals best not approached alone. Symptoms include breaking into a sweat and being struck dumb when encountering someone who understands logical fallacies.

Orange County Child Custody “Charade” Exposed

Orange County Child Custody “Charade” Exposed

Last week, the North Carolina Court of Appeals vacated a child custody order entered by Orange County District Court Judge Joe Buckner, calling the child custody case a “charade.” The case involves a 3-year old boy who was removed from Nevada by Mormons so he could be adopted in North Carolina without his mother’s consent.

The Court of Appeals agreed with the young boy’s mother, Emily M. McManaway, that Judge Buckner’s order must be vacated because he failed to hear any evidence before awarding sole custody of McManaway’s son to her brother and his wife when they had already given the young boy away to a Surry County couple they had met online.

Anonymous Submission

My stepson was beaten 4 times by his mom’s boyfriend before anyone did a thing. DCFS of MO never charged him even though the state we live in named the boyfriend as the abuser. This mom even said she did it one time to cover up. We had to go to trial and this child had to suffer so much for years before they would remove him and place him with dad. They later dropped the case and found no evidence of abuse. If the dad has done this, he would have been in jail for sure. This mom was even under supervised visits at one time and they still did nothing. He was finally given to the dad with joint custody and the mother picked him up for visits with the boyfriend who put him in the hospital. It was unreal. I have no respect for them and I really want the laws to change. When you really need them they suck, when its not needed they take your child.

Well it all started with a false positive for meth when my youngest was born. But somehow the false positive part did not matter anymore. CPS worked their way in to our lives and in to our home. Before I knew what was going on they came with the cops and took my two children that were home. They checked my house out and said everything was good. lots of food / the house was clean then came back a few days later with the cops and threatened to arrest me for obstruction if I didn’t give my kids up.

Next they started us on a case plan and we jumped through there hoops and did what they said. It took us over a year to get our kids back home.

Things were going good, we were all together once again we were all happy and the kids were growing like weeds. But then my youngest got sick and I took her to the hospital and after three or four hours in the ER they admit her with double pneumonia, she had a temp of a 104.

Over the next few days she was not herself she was real aggressive toward us and the nurse or anybody that came near her she would claw at herself and bite and scream to the point that we sure did not know what to do. And I don’t think the hospital did either. But this is where they get CPS back in to it.

We still have two kids at home and I have to work and was not able to spend as much time as they thought we should have at the hospital they call CPS. I think she had a reaction to something they had given her. But they come up with something else. She must be having withdraws from meth. The next thing I know they say they did a hair folic test on her and she was positive for meth. This is the hospital saying all this. Then CPS comes by wanting my kids again. I told them to kiss my ass and to get off my land. Well we go and hide out for a while but soon have to return home. I see the cops drive by the house and I knew they were up to something so I told Kelly if I was not backing soon to take the kids out of there. Will I get a few blocks away with the cops on my ass all the way they pull me over and ask where Kelly and the kids are? Well I told them to go to hell and they take me to jail for obstruction. I got out we hide out for the weekend. We talk it over and decide to turn them over to CPS. Wrong thing to do because this is where they lie out there ass. They want more hair test done and we comply with them. They get the tests back and say my two girls were positive. will I know that they are lying. So on one of our visits we cut some of my girl’s hair and have it tested and it was negative so we told them we want to have the girls tested again at a place of our own choosing they agree if we pay for it. Ok so we get it done and it comes back negative once again but by that time I guess it didn’t matter .The court takes away our rights the foster mom gets to adopt our kids and that is that we don’t know where they are at or get to see them. Will yesterday we are taking presents to CPS for our kids who we haven't seen for over a year and Kelly starts saying Jeff look it’s our kids they are here walking right in to the doors where we are at our oldest girl sees us and yells daddy and I get to hug her and try to tell them we love them but foster mom goes into shock and hurries them all back to the van. This is our second Christmas without them and it’s not getting any better. We love our Children and would do anything to have them back in our loving arms where they belong.

Angelina / Justin / Jessica. We love you always and forever. Mom and Dad

Israel- Precedent set in Second Parent Adoption Case

Israel- Precedent set in Second Parent Adoption Case

Melanie Nathan ; Dec 26-2010; A legal ruling in the Jerusalem Family Court on Thursday sets the Holy Land ahead of many a foreign jurisdiction when it comes to gay and lesbian second parent adoptions. Although a favorable ruling was reached in the precedent setting case, the gnawing question is whether or not the law will stand, given a slight variation of facts and the possibility of a conservative Judge, in future cases. What is needed to secure a precedent setting case such as this is actual legislated law.

This was inspired by the first "Merry Christmas" post.

This was inspired by the first "Merry Christmas" post.

This year was the first year I was able to contact my son for Christmas in 7 years.

It was through MSN but the typed words were the sweetest gift I could have ever received. He is 17 now, and was in a place where the people caring for him were "drunk" and "fighting" but in that small time we talked, our Christmas was real and as magical as the ones when he was a small child.

I ache for the little boy that was stolen from me and I wonder if I'll ever see him laugh and play again so I won't just be grateful that I have him now. I love him and I am thankful that my battle to see my child is at an end but the battle to see justice done not just for my family but for the uncountable number of families who are suffering right under tyrannical, global assault on the family unit has just begun.

Fight the Power. Never Give Up. Love WILL conquer in the end!!!!

Love to you all, I know your pain.

Government’s Secret Family Courts – Bill Maloney Reports



February 2010 - Award winning film director Bill Maloney is refused entrance to the Inner London Family Proceedings Court to support a young couple who were having their 10 month old baby girl taken away from them.

This is another tragic example of authorities taking children from young parents at birth.

Reported recently in The Times: Reforms to open up the family courts to the media are at risk of being scuppered by mounting opposition from senior judges, lawyers, childrens groups and MPs, The Times has learnt.

EVERY OTHER DAY AFTER THAT MY AUNT WOULD INVITE MEN OVER TO GET HIGH USING COCAINE AND INJECTING NEEDLES IN THEIR ARMS. MY OLDEST BROTHER USE TO TRY AND PROTECT ME AND AND OUR OTHER BROTHERS AND SISTERS. THESE MEN WERE RAPING BOTH OF MY SISTERS EVERY OTHER WEEK. THEN MY AUNTS HUSBAND THE FOSTER FATHER RAPED MY BROTHER. MY OLDEST BROTHER TRIED TO STOP THIS AND WHEN HE COULD NOT STOP THIS, MY AUNT CALLED THE CHICAGO POLICE TO HAVE MY BROTHER ARRESTED AND TAKEN TO MICHAEL REESE HOSPITAL AND I NEVER SAW MY BROTHER AGAIN. AT 16 YEARS OLD I TRIED TO ESCAPE THE FOSTER HOME AND MY AUNT HAD PAID SOMETHING MONEY TO HAVE SOMEONE SHOOT ME IN MY RIGHT FOOT. I ALSO WAS RAPED BY A GROWN WOMAN WHEN I WAS 11 YEARS OLD. THIS IS HORRIBLE WHAT THE ILLINOIS DEPARTMENT OF CHILDREN AND FAMILY SERVICES AND THE COOK COUNTY PUBLIC GUARDIANS OFFICE HAS CAUSED ME TO GO THROUGH ALL OF THIS AND FOR WHAT. I AM AT A LOST BECAUSE WHEN I WAS HOME I WAS VERY HAPPY AND WELL TAKEN CARE OF MY FATHER AND MOTHER WAS VERY CARING AND UNDERSTANDING PEOPLE.

On October 26, 2010, we picked our 6 week old son up from daycare. He was extremely fussy and it took us an hour to calm him down and get him to sleep. This is unusual because our infant is rarely fussy unless he has gas, in which case, gas x always helps. Anyway, an hour after we put him to sleep we went to take him out of the swing and noticed dark bruising on his leg that was not apparent before. We immediately took him to the ER. We were in the ER for 26 hours before transferring us to a pediatric hospital. The doctors diagnosed bilateral tibial fractures and a left femoral fracture. Upon discharge from the hospital, CPS took our child into their care and placed him in foster care. We have never had any issues with the law and are good parents. we are sure the daycare is responsible but CPS doesn't care. Because we are the parents, it must be us that abused him. He has only been at this daycare for 2 days. We had a hearing at the 14 day mark where CPS asked for a continuance. Then 14 days later, another continuance. 14 more days.....judge cancels hearing and ordered a mediation. At mediation CPS wanted us to sign a form stating them as our son's managing conservator in order to get him back before the holidays. we refused to sign anything stating guilt or naming them the caretaker for our child. so now we are awaiting a trial in mid January and missing our first Christmas together.

I hate CPS, they are ruining our lives. We are missing the developmental milestones in our sons life and important bonding time. Not to mention that our son is strictly breastfed and I am having trouble keeping up without the daily stimulation from him feeding. We wanted the best for our family and did what we THOUGHT was right bringing him to the hospital and it all blew up in our face. They have no proof of abuse but are still able to keep him? How is this legal or possible?

"Merry Christmas"

You cannot listen to the radio, you cannot watch TV, you cannot go out to the store, and you cannot read the papers.

A song can cut through you like a knife. Watching and hearing children laugh and play is cruel. "Merry Christmas", "Joy to the world" and "Peace on Earth" is an insult.

That's the reality for a parent or relative left with nothing but an empty bed, un played with toys and maybe a picture that cannot hold onto or talk to you.

While the world around you rejoices, you are falling into a deep, dark pit that cannot be climbed out of.

Nobody listens to you, or even bothers to understand what you are going through and what your fears are for your children. It seems like they think you just lost your wallet or the hamster died.

Somebody's taking "Care" of your child, and Fuck You!

That was my Christmas 30 years ago. One does NOT forgive nor forget!

Well, I don’t live with either of my parents or my family members; instead I had to join someone else’s. None of us are really related but somehow we call each other family.

My children are being held against there will with Oregon state cps. There are not being permitted to speak to me. Except for my 5yr old son Collin. My 12 & 8yr old have had no contacted with since there father was allowed to abandon them at his brothers house against my knowledge. I had contacted several law enforcement agencies in ca. and in or. Oregon had sided that the father did no wrong and I should obtain a court order in the state I live in to retain custody and come to Oregon to retrieve my children. I did that ans was arrested for trying to contact my children. Thus the police/cps placed my children with my husbands brother and gave him foster status while i went to jail for telephonic harassment for contacting the my husbands family addressing my court order to pick up my children. cps had made so many claims to bash me as a wonderful parent and current keeps my children ..its Christmas and I have a court order to speak to my youngest twice weekly...social service has not made any effort to make that happen and has let the brother leave to another city for Xmas...reunification is the plan ..but how is that suppose to happen with incompetent cps workers and there public defenders who could care less?

DCF came in to my house asking questions my wife told she wanted nothing to do with them but they persisted and took our child away for false accusations. I was found not guilty after my child came and told the truth in court i was in orange county for 14 months before they did the evidence hearing to prepare for trial that is when the judge got mad and told the state attorney that he will not take this to trial, because he believed my child was telling the truth, my child told her psychologist many times same thing, she told the investigator the same thing, they did not want to listen to anyone not my other children not my wife or x wife or my father in law or my neighbors or my x mother in law or my coworkers they did not find anything at forensic interview they just wanted to have a case so they can all have jobs and something to do so they can get paid, they did not care about this family it was nothing but a business transaction to them, this came from the horses mouth. so if you are not guilty of harming your child do not let them in your house if I knew better I would not have let them in our house that it almost got taken away.

Re >> Most kids won't grow up knowing that information

Yeah, God forbid you tell them the truth about their lives, for example that all of you wonderful social workers and foster parents who care so much had better things to do than to let them spend a little time with their families on Christmas. It's better for you, I suppose, if they don't know that their parents made efforts to make it happen. I know if I was a kid in this system right now, knowing the truth would make me hate you that much more. Helps the alienation process along.

The real parents should have the right to see their kids on Christmas. Just because it's inconvenient for some foster parent doesn't make that an unreasonable request.

Remember a couple days ago I posted a link to this blog. http://bringusababy.blogspot.com/, specifically this post where she celebrates the joyous occasion of the mothers rights being terminated to her child and that she should be able to adopt.

Well apparently this blog post of hers pissed a few of you off as several of you have left comments expressing your disgust for her lack of empathy for the real mother and her tendency to believe everything that the nice social worker told her. Whatever. I don't control what any of you do. The point of me linking to such is so that you can understand how they think.

They are telling her she HAS to sign over the rights to her son in order to get her daughters back. But before she can get her daughters back, she has to go through a treatment plan. She has passed all the treatment plans they have given her too so far. Everytime that she has planned to move back to her home state of Iowa, she always loses her kids again. They are keeping her in the state against her will, and she will not leave without her kids. I need help on how to get someone to fight with her against the state of Iowa.

Late last night my 2 month old daughter was taken into foster care.

She was born 4 weeks early weighing 7lbs 9oz and was discharged from the hospital with a light heart murmur and jaundice but otherwise in good health.

After a few weeks, she wasn't gaining weight even though she was eating. (I breastfed) So we were at the doctor 3-4 times a week since she was born getting her weight re-checked and speaking with lactation consultants and physicians.

2 weeks ago (she was 6 weeks) one of her doctors admitted her to the hospital for monitoring. We spent 2 weeks living in that hospital with her feeding her around the clock and having weight checks twice a day. She gained, lost, gained, then lost again. She got up to 9lbs 1oz and when she was discharged she weighed 8lbs 6oz. but the doctors felt she was ok to leave because the bottom line was, she gained weight.
Well CPS came to the hospital a couple days before we left and said we needed to find someone to come live with us for up to 45 days because we were being accused of not feeding our child. So I called a friend of mine from back home in Illinois (we're in NC) and she took off work and spent the money to fly out immediately. She was checked out by CPS and given the go ahead to come out here to stay with us to monitor how we feed her at home.

Well the day after she got here we had a safety meeting at the DSS agency where we were told that she no longer was approved because she didn't have kids of her own. Ok, understandable. We gave them a couple that lives on base (we're military) and have a 5 month old child. They approved them at first but that lasted only a few hours. They denied them for "unknown reasons".

Now it's a few days before Christmas and not many people are able to just drop their family or their lives to come live with us for an undetermined amount of time. We were given a short amount of time to come up with as many names as possible. But no one we know is willing or able to come out here. We live over 1000 miles away from home and not everyone has the money to drop on an immediate flight out here.

We have documentation showing just how often we went to the doctor and how often we had to get her blood drawn for her bilirubin testing (for the jaundice). I went to her doctor's office and requested her ENTIRE medical file since the day she was born. I asked for every doctor note and nurses name that weighed her and on what days. I showed this to CPS but they don't care now that my husband and I are proving them very wrong.

We now are spending Christmas trying to find a lawyer able to take our case over the holiday and selling my car to pay for the lawyer.

L.A. County corruption, a policed State fathers having no rights to their children.

I petitioned for divorce ending a two year marriage ended due to drugs and the abuse of my 2 year old daughter. To my surprise the court system was corrupt as the custody that was granted was taken away , I never seen so many cops in my whole live as I did the first weeks after the papers were served. The court system raped the family as they changed custody rights with unreasonable support demands of $1,500.00 per month when my job paid only 365.00 week in 1996 the system based it on potential rather than actuality me not knowing It was a lost cause soon after it started. In 2003 received from the Irvine police department to pick up my child or she was going to orangewood a county juvenile hall due to deplorable living conditions where she was held by the courts for ransom. I made a second mistake by picking up my child, I recall the call on Wednesday and responded, Monday morning I was in court on kidnapping charges, 10,000.00 later I was rewarded 100% custody which was another mistake, Today in

Today after two 12” high court folders no job no Driver or contractor license the false claim is over 120,000.00 as my second marriage two children starve and had to divorce to her bank account robed.

My 8 year old Girl Gerogia Eve and son Joe Paul are victims of the L.A. County system – my other daughter Jackie is going to a community college as her brother and sister starve. A corrupt system that holds good families hostage and puts fathers on the street. I wish I had my drivers and contractors license to be able to support my children while the county play there games on innocent families.

My "doctor", Susan McVey, who actually turns out NOT to be a doctor, offered to watch my daughter, Alivia Hanson-Lybarger back on March 1, 2010, while I recovered from an ileostomy reversal, removal of ovarian cancer, removal of ovaries, tubes, and cul-de-sac. I had no family willing to watch my daughter at this time. I trusted this woman with my life. As soon as she had my daughter, she started drugging me up with VERY powerful pain medications and numerous other medications. 60-120 pills of diuladid every 2 weeks, flexeril, gabapentin, buspar, lethal dosages of anti-biotics, demerol, etc. This was actually, literally, killing me. Susan McVey said that I was dying and wouldn't be around much longer. On June 15, 2010, I was tricked into signing adoption papers that I thought and were told were simply further limited guardianship papers. I had said good bye to my family, my son, my husband. It wasn't until July, when I stopped taking ALL of the medications Susan had been trying to kill me with, that I realized everything that had taken place. I demanded my daughter back. Susan refused. Since August 18, 2010, I and my son have not been allowed to see my daughter!! My daughter has been apart of our lives since birth up until 16 months. Alivia turned 2 this past Thanksgiving. All we want is our baby girl back. Joseph is always asking, "where is my livi", "when will my livi be back"? We continue to fight, fight, fight. The father never signed away his rights to Alivia. Alivia has severe asthma and requires a nebulizer and 2 different medications with it. Susan McVey has been illegally writing my daughter prescriptions instead of making her pediatrician aware of her asthma. Susan has threatened numerous people's lives for trying to help me and my daughter. Please, help bring justice for Alivia.

Thank you,

Shannon Lybarger
