We are entering the era of mandates and government invasion, where up is down, privileges are rights, and children are the property of the State. In the land of liberty, all is illusion.
According to William Wagner, J.D., magistrate judge, “Today, a majority of the Supreme Court no longer treats the parents’ right to control and direct the upbringing of their child as a fundamental liberty.”
The denial of parents’ rights by State authorities has become more frequent over the last five decades as government has tested its reach under the color of law. Color of law refers to an appearance of legal power to act but which may operate in violation of law. Case in point: A Medical Kidnap website documents thousands of cases around the country where hospitals have taken possession of children based on a medical diagnosis “in the best interest of the child,” with the court’s approval. Without being reported in the mainstream media, the general population is blind to these acts while unsuspecting families are targeted and picked off one at a time. After years of market testing, State governments are now unveiling draconian laws without fanfare.
The Bill of Rights for Children and Youth In California
After the turmoil and confusion surrounding the 2015 passage of a mandatory vaccination law SB277 in California to ban children from attending private or public school without full compliance with the CDC childhood vaccine schedule, California proposes SB-18. The Bill of Rights for Children and Youth in California (SB-18) seeks to usurp the natural rights of parents as caregivers. Taken together, these two laws set a dangerous precedent that not only spells the end of medical freedom but also the end of parental rights whenever a government official or agency declares it so.
When did an obligation to care for and raise children suddenly turn parents into potential child abusers under the law? Although tyranny seems to have reared its ugly head overnight, history shows we have all been living this ideology under a slow boil. It was Karl Marx who said, “The family… must itself be theoretically and practically destroyed.” He argued fiercely that government and its authority must be substituted for parental authority for the sake of Capitalism. What he didn’t say was his desire to maintain a materialistic, feudal society where people are commodities without consciousness.
Marxism socializes people to think in a way that justifies inequality by teaching children to accept there will always be someone in authority who they must obey – the Master-Slave dynamic. Marxist philosophy redistributes the wealth to third world countries that have suffered under socialist/totalitarian policies imposed by the same corrupt regimes.
There is no other purpose for anti-social, socialist dictates other than to unravel the fabric of the family. As Confucius said, “The strength of a nation derives from the integrity of the home.” As the family goes, so goes the nation.
The strength of this nation has eroded from the inside due to a federal government without accountability, through policies that have: 1) drained the economy with never-ending war, 2) transferred wealth from Main Street to Wall Street, and 3) outsourced American jobs overseas, among other things. The stage has been set for the resurgence of a Marxist State, primed under the guise of liberalism, which pushes vaccine mandates for children while claiming to be the party of choice when it comes to abortion rights. Legislative and judicial overreach has resulted in a new social state where the citizenry, kept in the dark and powerless, are none the wiser.
When Rights Are Legalized
Inherent rights are natural and inborn, granted by the Creator. They come from our humanity under Natural Law, not from man-made laws. Rights granted and legalized by governments are not rights, but privileges that can be restricted and taken away by legislation or Executive Command. Legalese is the hidden language that redefines words as tools to expand the scope and power of the State. Under statutes, a “person” is a legal fiction, not a human being with free will. At the same time, a “corporation” is defined as “a number of persons united in one body, so it can acquire wealth, expand, and enjoy other rights, even though a corporation is incapable of loyalty or love.
A government that gives itself power by its own authority is a rogue government and must be stopped because the trend is toward a One World Government homogenizing and standardizing all laws under International treaties. (e.g., Trans-Pacific-Partnership trade agreement). FYI: The United Nations (UN) hopes to “reduce inequality” by implementing new norms of global socialism and corporate fascism as part of their Post-2015 Sustainable Development Goals.
Global Treaties Usurp National Law
In 2011, the US was the only country that had not ratified a UN International Treaty called the UN Rights of the Child (UNCRC). However, this treaty appears to be the foundation of several U.S. court decisions regarding child placement, as well as the new California law SB -18 the Bill of Rights for Children and Youth in California. Like so many laws that do the opposite of their intended purpose (i.e., Clean Skies Act), the Rights of the Child Act strips the child of any rights.
One provision of the UNCRC states that a child’s view should be taken into equal consideration along with the parents. This means anytime there is a conflict between parent and child, a government referee can decide what is in the best interest of the child. The U.S. courts already control for the “best interests of a child” with a Guardian ad litem” (GAL) to investigate solutions in cases of divorce and parental responsibilities. However, author and Family Psychologist John Rosemond says, “This [Act] is a convention on the stripping of rights from American parents and parents all over the globe.”
In other countries that have adopted the Act’s provisions, like Sweden, home schooling is illegal, and carries the risk of criminal charges and children being removed from the home. In Belgium, doctors can terminate the lives of babies under one year old if the child is disabled. No parental consent is required. President Clinton approved this treaty during his term. The only thing that prevents implementation is a two-thirds approval by the Senate.
California is a testing ground in America. As California goes, so goes the nation. Yet even without formal U.S. ratification of the Act, U.S. federal courts are taking the lead from international law to advance the objectives of the UNCRC. States legislatures are lifting articles straight out of the UN treaty and passing them under new laws (i.e., Customary International Law), thereby making UN law the supreme law of the land. The Legislative and Judicial branches are already joined at the hip with Executive Branch approval. When Child Protective Services acts as child collection agencies then Social Services means the child belongs to the State.
There is a difference between legal and lawful and that distinction is playing out in the American family. Going forward we must resist playing the their game of claiming “Parental Rights” vs. “Children’s Rights” in a corrupt system that no longer recognizes Inherent Rights.
Instead, we must take back the language and determine who we are if we are to retain our Natural Rights and those of our children. Are we a person-corporation or a soul embodied? Do we have free-will or do we ask for permission from an outside authority? Do we consent to the dictates of a rogue government or do we withdraw consent? Do we own our bodies or does the State? Do we recognize inalienable rights over privileges and act on them? Do we reclaim our sovereignty as free-will beings? It is time to redefine the words we live by to work in our favor.
In the American system no government is sovereign. The peoples of the states are the sovereigns. It is they who apportion powers between themselves, their state governments, and the federal government. In doing so they are not impairing their sovereignty in any way. To the contrary, they are exercising it. – Tom Woods, Tenth Amendment Center
