Save twins. CPS illegally took 4 children, judge orders all back home CPS only sent 2 home

let me start off by saying, I know CPS is an organization who are here or supposedly here to help people and Families. But that hasn't been the case throughout so many counties in our state, in fact the county I come from and who originated my CPS case had over 35 suits from people's drug screens being falsified. My case came along that time & it's due from lying CPS worker's, incompetent worker's who prematurely & inaccurately did their investigation. They REFUSED to have my urine screen analyzed that showed a false positive at my doctors office due to a concoction of over the counter cold meds & prescribed Welbutrin. However, CPS would not admit their wrongs, gather my analyzed doctor records, nor have my test done over. They never checked our home or living arrangements. Used scare tactics on us & had me agree to my children being placed in my sister's home then forged my signature on new paperwork and jerked my kids up & placed them with abusers & neglecter's. I tried my hardest to get in contact with them & Columbia (state) to tell them they needed to be home or placed back with my sister since they were jerked from her with no legitimate reason. Long story short we wound up with our kids in foster care separate, my two oldest and very oldest made claims to the caseworker in front of everyone that they were being abused, so I contacted the state constituent services and the next day my children were removed from that foster home. However, the County CPS covered up the reason why from me but obviously it had to be because Columbia found reason they needed to be moved or found reason to backup my son's claims. My children have always been taught not to lie & haven't. We jumped through their hoops over & over & completed their treatment plan which was a mandatory 90days. They waited months, almost 5 months to be exact to get us into court & order all 4 of my children home. 2 oldest & within 30days my 1yr old twins were to come home. Guess what....that was 1yr & 2mnths ago & 1 county ago that we are still waiting for them to make it home. Still my husband, 2 children that's home & I, are jumping through hoops but CPS continues to break things on our court order & the police tell me they can't make a report because they aren't breaking a state law which they can enforce. They are trying to hold me from my court ordered UNSUPERVISED VISITATION to see my children. We have the means to care for our family, but not a lump sum to pay for a paid attorney, so I'm not getting the best representation. Now, since it's been so long the single foster mom to my children(twins) has gone & filed a private motion to adopt my twins!!! I have text msgs showing I've tried to visit etc but nobody not even CPS would respond, so they making it look like I haven't visited which are her grounds for the private motion. How can a court & CPS keep saying I am a fit mother & husband a fit father & have two kids at home but not my other two?!?! Please help me bring my children home before it is too late. They are wrongfully letting a foster parent have too much input! They are breaking court orders & no one is doing anything about it. I don't know what else to do. My family has been ripped apart for almost 2 yrs now & have continued to  use their own rules or only things when its convenient for them. We paid/pay support our obligation, hair chopped off numerous times, jumped thru hoops paid almost a thousand for parenting classes during this etc. Where can I turn, pls sign my petition?! I demand legitimate answers & that my twins be sent home!?  Thank you so much. Pls share?! Too often this happens to families around our state & country. Together we have a voice!!

Hobbs City Government, stop extorting lawful pet parent rescuers exercising Natural Rights

I am a single mother with 4 kids. I pay my taxes. I believe in absolute freedom, and take care never to infringe on any persons rights. My mistake, and apparent crime, was taking in 2 abused and abandoned dogs, and one wandering to the sidewalk outside of my fence. She harmed no one, and nothing. Here is my story. I have spent the past couple days in jail because the Constitution of The People has been suspended. I believe Maritime/Admiralty/Equity law has taken its place.  I get this indication from the gold fringe and tassels that we mistake as meaningless and pretty decorations. I have not deeply studied Maritime/Admiralty law as of this writing.  I know that it is the law of water, and of commerce, and that it secretly affects the people who are charged in the courts in which it stands.  I know that it is not a lawful flag of freedom and justice for all. The People are not allowed to use the Constitution in these courts. These Courts are defined as 'Banks' in the legal dictionaries. I assume this law magically gives Government blanket jurisdiction over everything and everybody. I was unexpectedly saddled with 2 homeless American Pitbull Terrier dogs. I was hoping to re-home them but they are still in my possession. I do not believe in the unnecessary murdering of animals, so I did not give them to the local animal shelter. I have some space and they are extra friendly.  One dog somehow escaped the back yard and walked around my property to the front sidewalk. She was sitting outside my front fence. The next day, the neighbors told me they saw her sitting there and called the pound.  I immediately went to pick her up. The shelter attempted to force me to pay fees which totaled $300. Why? I hadn’t requested services. I stated various violations of Constitutional rights and they told me they’d give her back if I sign a letter promising to spay and vaccinate her.  I signed under duress, got my dog, and left. By what authority does Government believe it can force us to bow to Its will?!  The next day I received a failure to comply and an order to show cause from the city court clerk. Unless I am a slave, why do I have to comply?! This is a free country, right? The date for me to comply on the shelter documents was not for another 5 weeks. To what am I failing to appear or comply? I began researching my rights. I filed a Motion to Dismiss on Jurisdiction. I received a Failure to Appear Summons. I responded with an Answer questioning Jurisdiction. I received the same Failure to Appear.  Again, I responded with a Motion, including an appeal to the Judge to please stick to his Oath.  I received a repeat Failure to Appear including an Order and a Motion Denied and a Bench Warrant. I planned to go into the court the next day. Before I could go into court, my house was surrounded by police. I did not run out the front door because I am disabled physically and it takes me a bit to get from one room to another. I guess I took too long and the police were on my deck, threatening to break the door down. They put everyone in handcuffs, including my 2 minor children and a friend who was visiting. They took us to jail but it was only me they booked. The next day I saw the judge, but it was on a monitor from the jail. No witnesses. He immediately recused himself from the case. I learned from another inmate who had just come back from the courtroom that she overheard my judge tell the new judge that he was tired of arguing with me. They should whisper better.  When my new judge came on screen, he asked me if I understood the charges against me. I responded ‘NO, I do NOT understand the charges against me, sir.’  He told me that I first needed to plea and then he would explain them to me.  When I insisted that I could not enter pleas without understanding the charges, he began entering pleas for me. I respectfully interrupted with ‘Is your Honor practicing law from the bench?’ Judge Arthur completed the entire arraignment on his own, completely ignoring my successively louder objections. He told me I would meet my Public Defender in the morning. I had not asked for a Public Defender. I attempted to tell him I refuse a Public Defender and I could defend myself if he would just uphold the Constitution but the Judge ended the monologue by turning off the monitor. The charges are: Dog License (Unconstitutional) Vaccinations (Unconstitutional) Animal/Dog at Large (Unconstitutional) Resisting Arrest (I took too long to answer the door because I couldn't get me cane from its perch to be able to walk. I have brain tumors and am disabled) Besides, No one is required to open the door to anyone. Especially, and including Police. Expectation of obedience to The State is slavery. And slavery is supposed to be illegal. The Supreme Court has numerous rulings on this. Obedience indicates that you are a slave, or a child. We have a duty to be good to each other. But no competent adult is required to obey anyone. I filed objections the moment I got home from jail. There was no bond, so I had to sit there until he willed me to be free. 2 days. Debtors jails are illegal. At the forced arraignment, the judge gave me a plea deal even though I had not pled, but he had for me, which is illegal and unlawful, unless I am incompetent; and the plea can only be 'Not Guilty' so the Burden of Proof goes on the STATE. The deal is 90 days in jail and $1500 fine! This is America under Gold Fringed Admiralty/Maritime Law. Under Public Policy made by Corporations, not the will of The People. The United States Corporation is NOT a free country. Had the Constitution of We The People been applied, I would not now be a criminal with a record. Please help me establish more Pet Parent friendly laws, tighter holds on Corporations and Government overreach of our rights, and a restriction on Government fundraising via criminalization of our inherent right to life, liberty and property.

Petition to Connecticut General Assembly, House Representative Joe Aresimowicz, Senator Martin Looney, Senator Len Fasano, State Representative Themis Klarides, Governor Ned Lamont


Concerned tax-payers, voters, and parents of Connecticut have launched a Repeal Secret Deal CT campaign to address Public Act 19-117, Section 183, a nontransparent deal that was pushed through the state general assembly in June of 2019, without a public hearing. This secret deal committed our public school children and their private student data, in addition to 100 million of public taxpayer dollars in $20 million dollars increments, for at least a five year period, to a hastily created nonpublic entity that is developed like a state quasi-public entity called The Partnership for Connecticut Inc.  As a result, WE, the undersigned taxpayers, parents, VOTERS, and concerned citizens of Connecticut demand the following:1. A special session to be convened immediately to ensure the Partnership of Connecticut Inc secret deal, a nontransparent entity, is not violating any state and federal laws pertaining to the rights of our public school children and their private student data. 2. Repeal all nontransparent sections of Public Act 19-117, Section 183, during the 2020 Regular Legislative Session that convenes February 5th and Adjourns May 6.Reasons Why the Above Actions Must Happen As Connecticut taxpayers, voters and parents, we believe that this Repeal Secret Deal CT campaign is necessary to protect the public’s interest to include our public-school children for several reasons: Ø Despite its state quasi-public appearance and conduct as a “public-private partnership” the enabling legislation has declared Public Act 19-117, Section 183,  the Partnership for Connecticut not be deemed a governmental entity. Ø As a consequence of this nontransparent entity’s designation, the conduct of this nonpublic entity in carrying out its public policies and objectives will not be subject to Freedom of Information Act (FOIA) requests from the public. Ø Lack of transparency of this nonpublic entity will mean no accountability for how public tax dollars are managed and spent. Not protecting our public school children private student data and the $100 million dollar taxpayer match to the many strings attached “gift” from the Dalio Foundation is a very high price to pay for the so-called strengthening of our public education system. Ø Potential conflicts of interest exist for members of the Partnership for Connecticut Inc. board who are also public servants/legislators who have an obligation to the taxpayers and citizens of Connecticut for transparency in their public responsibilities. Ø This secret entity’s exemption from public transparency laws may lead to violations of the educational rights of Connecticut public school children. Ø There is no accountability regarding public student’s rights under the Federal Educational Rights & Privacy Act (FERPA) and the Health Insurance Portability and Accountability Act (HIPAA) when a non-governmental entity that is not subject to FOI can have potentially unlimited access to private student records. Ø There has been no analysis regarding whether the receipt of federal education funds, such as under Title I, or Individuals with Disabilities Education Act IDEA could be jeopardized by potential conflicts in policy goals of this nonpublic entity. Please sign the petition by clicking the red button to the right and join our collective advocacy efforts to protect our public school children, to include, their private student data and our 100 million dollar tax investment because our Connecticut General Assembly of lawmakers has its legal duty to legislate, carry out and protect the will of the people. They need to recognize the urgent concerns for our public school children and their legal right to be protected.
