USA Today recently reported that the number of Americans taking antidepressants is soaring. This could possibly be in direct connection to the controversial TeenScreen survey given to children as young as 9 years old in public schools. TeenScreen has been responsible for policing the mental health of children over the past decade. It is significant that this mental-screening process usurps parental rights over the care of their own children.

Last week a 21-year-old Chicago man was arrested for doing the same thing to his 1-year-old daughter.

Changing the Narrative of Child Welfare

Changing the Narrative of Child Welfare

The nuclear secret of child welfare is that most of the children in foster care should not be there. Most children in foster care are harmed more than they are helped by being taken from their families, and by being kept in foster care for too long. Children in foster care are torn from their schools, separated from their siblings, over-prescribed psychotropic drugs, and housed in dangerous group homes rife with abuse -- and it all happens behind the iron curtain of secret court proceedings.

Requirement to consider gay couples for adoption forces Illinois Catholic Charities affiliates to close

Requirement to consider gay couples for adoption forces Illinois Catholic Charities affiliates to close

After the Illinois state legislature passed a requirement that says adoption and foster-care agencies — to be eligible for state money — must consider same-sex couples as potential foster-care or adoptive parents, the Roman Catholic bishops in Illinois decided to shut down most of the Catholic Charities affiliates in the state. This isn’t the first time something like this has happened: Massachusetts and Washington D.C. both passed similar requirements — and many Catholic Charities affiliates closed down in those states, as well. The New York Times reports:

When you hear about child abuse or neglect, most people’s first reaction is “get that kid out of danger.” Once we know the child has been removed, we breathe a sigh of relief, assume that the child will be better off in foster care, and consider the problem fixed. If we think of the abuser, it is almost always to condemn and judge: “How could they do that?”

An email I recieved

I got this in an email.  I know nothing about it.


My name is Gabe Dominocielo and I am the Executive Director of RepresentYou.com, we're a State Bar Certified Lawyer Referral Service and one of our panel member attorneys is suing on behalf of families who have been wrongfully separated by child services and have had their children put into foster care for no reason.
  • In Los Angeles County, for example, each child from a family on government assistance brings Los Angeles County up to $150,000 per year in revenue. In 2009, the Department’s budget was nearly 2 billion dollars for approximately 15,000 children, half of whom were NOT abused or neglected.
  • In Los Angeles County, approximately 1000 children are taken each month. State law requires a trial within 15 days to ensure that onlyabused and neglected children are separated from their families and put in foster care. To that end, each child and each parent has a court appointed attorney.
  • Child services has a routine suspension of a fair trial and manipulates parents into not fighting for their own children through a trial, rather, has parents try to recover children through the foster care system which can take years.
  • While parents navigate the complex foster care system, children can be seriously physically, sexually and mentally abused. During this timeLos Angeles County is benefiting financially.
Please help me stop this. I have studies which care prove all of this and we have been working with the Children’s Justice Foundation (CJF) to help find families who have been effected by this to help them receive compensation for what has happened to them. 

There is no cost to people who use our service, we refer clients to the lawyers for free and the lawyers can sue on their behalf on a contingency fee basis. 

I have been tasked with finding more plaintiffs for this lawsuit which is much like a class action but this type of lawsuit is called a coordinated action. After looking at your website I thought you may want to help me find more victims of child services. I would appreciate a link to my child services pages which further explain the serious problems with child services and the foster care system. If you're interested I can send you a copy of the complaint which goes much more in depth. I am also available by phone and email (below). 



We have many more pages if you're interested.

Thank you,

SystemSuckology: The Art Of Misleading The Public

Now I'm gonna go all psycho-philosophical on you.

The following video is what we call Child Abuse Propaganda.  I want you all to really watch this video. I don't mean once. I want you to analyze it, rather tear it apart in your mind. Memorize it.  Break it down.

I want you to pick out particular elements. See the truth mixed with lies. See the demonetization of parents and the sympathy building for the heroic CPS Agents who now risk life and limb in the protecting  acquisition and distribution of our children. Watch the body language and pay particularly close attention to the dramatic use of expression. See him make excuses for CPS failures, "We don't have the capacity legally to protect kids..." See how the selective use of statistics is used to inflate the perceptual impact upon the nice people ignorant who only have faith in the system because they have yet to experience the pleasures of a CPS Agent crawling up your ass mixed with the fact that their education comes from the TV, with the information being distributed to the television stations via the public relations departments.

Then understand why the sheep are generally supportive of the child protective industry regardless of the fraud, lies, and the unnecessary destruction of children and families.



I will give you an observation.

The number of calls to the hotline is used to create a perceptual impact upon the influential minds of the ignorant, by being used to represent the number of abused and neglected children in New York City. This does not account for the percentage of calls that are screened out and do not rise to the level where an investigation is warranted, nor does it account for the percentage of cases which are investigated but not substantiated, in which case about 3/4ths of that 60,000 calls would be thrown out the window, thus not actually being an accurate representation.

The rest is up to you.

The important thing to note is that this is a psychological attack on the ignorant. It is how they manufacture support for that which people don't understand, by fluffing the numbers as well as the severity levels and portraying the monsters as heroes. The average Joe is not going to understand what parents who are targeted by the system really go through, as this is the kind of thing that they are bombarded with through the senses of sight and sound all the time. "Something terrible could happen to a child, and there's not much we can do and bla bla bla..."

I do believe that people are generally good and want to do the right thing. The problem is that they are so easily misled as to what the right thing actually is, simply because they see crap like this.

A picture is painted.  The truth stays hidden.  Reality is half media created.
