    With this post I’ll broaden the scope of this thread to “normal” adoption in the US through the Child Protection Services (CPS). In 2011, an audit was released including the shocking news that more than 1,000 state-licensed care facilities for vulnerable people in California matched the addresses of sex offenders. The facilities matching the registry of sex offenders included facilities for adults with special needs, children, and foster homes: http://latimesblogs.latimes.com/lanow/2011/10/foster-homes-sex-offenders.html In 2006 and 2007, John Boel reported about “being swamped with complaints” against CPS in Kentucky. WLKY Target 32 News had to go to court to get their investigative report on the air. In one situation on the recommendation of a caseworker, 3 children were taken away from their mother in a family court lasting 17 minutes. The caseworker simply claimed that the children suffered from “educational and medical neglect”, without a shred of evidence. After the mother protested; her 3 other children were also taken away as well as 14 children from her extended family. CPS reportedly warned:

    In Kingdoms like Britain or the Netherlands, the head of state King/Queen holds the executive power. In colonies like Canada or Australia the Queen appointed Governor-General decides what happens. In these type of dictatorships, parliament can only vote against the bills of the King/Queen... It is more democratic to have an elected president (like in the US) to get the “executive power” from the people. But I can imagine lots of more democratic systems where the “executive power” is more equally divided between elected politicians. The big benefit for the elite is that in this way, “they” only have to make sure that their puppets are selected for president. It’s easy to hide this practice... There are lots of stories that all (or most) US Presidents are interrelated. The 12-year-old BridgeAnne d’Avignon traced the lineage of 42 of all 43 US Presidents to King John of England.

    In my opinion in our wonderful political system that we call "democracy" it's the media (including the internet "search" engines) that decide who wins. I found the following reasonably good story on the corruption surrounding the media outlets in Turkey (in 2014): https://freedomhouse.org/sites/default/files/Turkey%20Report%20-%20Feb%203%2C%202014.pdf Sadly overlooked are the "alternative" media...

    AP found 18 secret prisons in Yemen, controlled by the UAE, where hundreds of Yemeni men are locked up without charges or trials. Detainees held in 5 UAE-controlled prisons, 4 of which in the Yemeni port city of Aden, have been tortured in “Abu Ghraib-like” prisons, including practices like: beating until bleeding; electrocuting genitals; hanging rocks from testicles; and anal rape with poles. Sometimes the shocking acts were filmed (to blackmail the victims...). On March 10, at Beir Ahmed prison in the southern city of Aden, 15 officers from the UAE arrived. They lined up the detainees and ordered them to undress and lie down. The officers then “searched” the anal cavity of each prisoner. A drawing of a victim; the Arabic reads: “with water after beating”. The UAE has denied running prisons or secret detention centres in Yemen. Yemen’s interior minister has said he doesn’t have authority over prisons and must ask the UAE for permission to enter Aden.

    Federal government has likely lost track of nearly 6,000 unaccompanied migrant children. At least 8 governors, including Maryland Gov. Larry Hogan (R) and Virginia Gov. Ralph Northam (D), have pulled their National Guard troops from the border in protest of the separation policy. The NBC explained that for the last 2 months, also children arriving with their parents were put in the hands of “sponsors” and that parents might never find them back: The 5-year-old son of the Honduran woman Ana Rivera was taken away, and she has not seen him in over a month leaving her in a state of panic. One of the arguments used for locking up the children separated from their parents, is that they don’t have enough tax money… It costs $256 per child per day to hold them in permanent HHS facilities like Casa Padre in Brownsville, Texas.

    After repeatedly claiming that it’s not his fault but because of “Democrats” federal law, Donald Trump signed an executive order that keeps migrant children with their parents. In the last 2 months more than 2300 children that were caught on the US-Mexico border have been separated from their parents as a result of the change in policy to treat adults crossing the US border without permission as criminal offenders. Yesterday evening at a rally in Minnesota, President Donald Trump addressed the raucous crowd: Trump also said Congress must change the 1997 Flores agreement, because this makes it impossible to lock up illegal migrants for more than 20 days. In an ongoing law suit, migrants have complained that children held at Shiloh Treatment Center, a government contractor near Houston were immigrant minors are detained, were held down and injected with psychiatric drugs. The children were told they would not be released to their parents unless they took the “vitamins”. According to affidavits, the drugs caused that the children could hardly walk, became afraid of people and wanting to remain in bed constantly: https://www.telegraph.co.uk/news/2018/06/20/donald-trump-says-will-sign-executive-order-end-child-separation/

    It doesn’t look to be about Israel to me, because in this way, they are actually bringing attention to Israel’s human rights violations in Gaza. United States authorities have separated thousands of children, including toddlers, from their parents. Earlier this month the UN urged the Trump administration’s to immediate halt this practice as it violates international law. The new policy was introduced (around half) April, after Jeff Sessions announced that the administration would start a “zero-tolerance” policy: Between 19 April and 31 May, 1,995 children were separated from their families; From early May to early June 2,342 children were separated from their families. Note that these periods overlap… Ravina Shamdasani of the UN human rights office said earlier this month, this:

    As the HHS has no procedures to prevent them handing over children to “sponsors” that abuse them, it’s likely that this is done systematically all over the US... I haven’t found much more on the Department of Health and Human Services (HHS) “releasing” unaccompanied children to “sponsors” that force them to slave labour, but there is attention for the (less damaging) story that children are separated from their parents and then locked up in cages. United States authorities have separated thousands of children, including toddlers, from their parents. Earlier this month the UN urged the Trump administration’s to immediate halt this practice as it violates international law. Ravina Shamdasani of the UN human rights office said this: She added that the US is the only country in the world that has not ratified the Convention on the Rights of the Child, but separating and detaining children also breached its obligations under other international human rights conventions it has joined.

    On 28 January 2016, a congressional report was released on a human trafficking ring that smuggled children from Guatemala to the US and forced them to work on an egg farm run by Trillium in Marion, Ohio for 6 to 7 days a week, 12 hours per day. On 17 December 2014, federal agents and police officers raided a trailer park in Marion and detained 40 undocumented Guatemalans from 16 trailers. Many of the victims were younger than 18. The Ohio trafficking ring promised to smuggle their kids from Guatemala to the US where they could receive an education and other opportunities. The families had to pay thousands of dollars to the trafficker. The traffickers threatened the children and their families with physical harm or even death if they were unwilling to cooperate. If the child was caught by border authorities, they’d be given an immigration hearing date and were handed over to the Department of Health and Human Services (HHS). The HHS was responsible for finding a sponsor who would take care of the child until their immigration hearing. But the HHS didn’t really do background checks on the “sponsors” and actually released at least 8 children to the human traffickers in Marion, posing as a relative or friend of the family. From 2013 through 2015, the HHS performed home studies in less than 4.3% of cases. It’s a policy of the HHS that sponsors can simply refuse that case workers do a follow up on the child. If that “sponsor” was exploiting or abusing the child, he could simply deny permission to the case worker’s request. In an 18 month period, 40% of the minors did not arrive for their immigration hearings!

    Over 4,000 families have fled Hodeidah since June 1, after hundreds were killed in the coalition’s bomb campaign to take the Yemeni port from Houthi rebels. On Friday, AP reported that already more than 280 people had died from the bombs. The death toll has surely gone up as the bombs continued. According to a report by the UN, people have lost their entire livelihood in airstrikes that destroyed farms. Two fleeing Yemenis made the following comments: On Saturday, the coalition announced that it had regained control of the airport outside Hodeidah. The Houthi rebels denied this and told SABA news agency that the airport was completely destroyed, but has not been surrendered: https://www.rt.com/news/430050-yemen-port-civilians-saudi/ Yemeni children sitting in the remains of a house in Hodeidah, 19 May.

    Or maybe... In 2013, emails from Inaki Urdangarin were seized as part of the ongoing investigation. These were leaked to Spanish daily newspaper El Mundo, and shows that he ridicules his in-laws (including Felipe). In 2 emails he makes fun of the future Queen of Spain, Letizia Ortiz, a former television journalist. One makes fun about Felipe have sexual intercourse with Letizia and the other shows screen shots of female newsreaders, including Letizia, and is titled "orgasms". Another email contained a picture, comparing Jaime de Marichalar (then husband of Princess Elena), to Inspector Clouseau and Inspector Gadget: https://www.telegraph.co.uk/news/worldnews/europe/spain/10436247/Son-in-law-of-King-of-Spains-crude-emails-about-his-in-laws.html

    On 17 February 2017, Spain’s King Felipe VI’s brother-in-law, Inaki Urdangarin, had been sentenced to years in prison for fraud, by a regional court on Majorca. On Tuesday, Spain’s Supreme Court upheld his prison sentence of 5 years and 10 months (5 months less than the verdict of the lower court). This is the first time in modern history that a member of Spain’s royal family is sent to prison. King Felipe’s sister, Princess Cristina (wife of Urdangarin), had earlier been stripped of her title Duchess of Palma by royal decree. The lower court found Princess Cristina not guilty of criminal charges, but fined her about €265,000 ($312,000) for her involvement in the fraud. The Supreme Court cut that in half. In 2011, an investigation was started into Urdangarin’s business activities, after huge cost overruns for the construction of a cycling track on Majorca. It was concluded that his “non-profit” foundation the Nóos Institute (with Princess Cristina on its board) and real estate company Aizoon (co-owned by Cristina and Inaki) had embezzled more than $7 million. The Royal couple had been living in Geneva, Switzerland. Urdangarin still has a final chance to avoid or delay incarceration, by appealing to Spain’s Constitutional Court.

    I guess that most people don’t even realise how bad it is that a small number of investment funds completely dominate our economy. The last time the financial power was this concentrated was in the days of J.P. Morgan (1837-1913)... Here are a couple of things “they” could do. Inflate stock prices, currency and orchestrate crashes of the economy. When you know in advance that a crash will come, it’s even easier to get huge profits (while eliminating the “competition” at the same time) than in a “normal” market. When the media (controlled by the big investment funds) report that the “passive funds” of BlackRock and Vanguard outperform the competition, this doesn’t really mean that they perform “better”. This is the logical result of dominating the financial markets.

    I’ve found another good book about one of the major players in Propaganda Due (P2), Roberto Calvi, and “his” Banco Ambrosiano (headquartered in Milan). Rupert Cornwell – God’s banker; The Life and Death of Roberto Calvi (1984): https://updoc.tips/download/free-pdf-ebook-god-s-banker-rupert-cornwell It’s a lot narrower in scope than the David Yallop book. The greater detail makes the book less shocking, but gives more insight in how Banco Ambrosiano was used in a massive fraud. Roberto Calvi – Ambrosiano I expected that Roberto Calvi (1920 - 1982) would be a gambling man, but the book describes an ambitious man that was (a lot) more cautious than I expected. It looks to me like he was more a victim of the situation, who played along, than a “real” criminal. In 1896, Monsignor Giuseppe Tovini founded Banco Ambrosiano and would become its first chairman. The story about Calvi's arrival at Banco Ambrosiano is that his father ran into a senior manager at Ambrosiano, Carlo Alessandro Canesi, who was looking for promising recruits. Roberto Calvi was swiftly taken on and became Canesi’s protégé in Ambrosiano. At the age of 45, Calvi was promoted to the rank of direttore centrale.

    Trump promised to create 25 million jobs in his 10-years-presidency (?!?), more than 200,000 a month, he (also) isn't on track on that promise: http://money.cnn.com/interactive/news/economy/trump-jobs-tracker/ Often state propaganda is being spread by our wonderful media on the “low” unemployment figures. We are for example told that unemployment in the US is only 3.8% - the lowest “in nearly 50 years”. The truth is that current unemployment isn’t “low” at all. For years, the US government has been taking numbers out of one category and putting them into another category. While the official number of “unemployed” Americans keeps going down, the number of Americans “not in the labor force” keeps going up. According to the Federal Reserve, there were 6,065,000 working age Americans unemployed last May. According to the same Fed, another category of 95,915,000 working age Americans are not “officially unemployed” because they are considered to be “not in the labor force”. When you add 6,065,000 and 95,915,000, there are 101,980,000 working age Americans that didn’t have a job last month. That’s an all-time record high; higher than it was during the last recession, when the number of working age Americans without a job never surpassed 100 million.

    Do you mean hallucinatory drugs like amphetamines? The amphetamine-like Ritalin is highly addictive and has a range of (side) effects, including depression. http://www.ronpaulforums.com/showthread.php?499682-Psychiatry-for-population-control The real trick is that drugs cause mental diseases, for which (other) drugs are described that cause (more) mental disease. Before you know it psychiatric victims/patients are on a cocktail of drugs. That these drugs cause mental disease, is used to “prove” that the original diagnosis of a mental disorder was correct.
