Judge blasts social workers telling them they ‘are not above the law’ after they remove nine-year-old from family then keep him away without consent

‘A judge has blasted social workers who he said illegally withheld a nine-year-old boy from his mother.

Judge Gareth Jones said that social services were not above the law and that he suspected proper procedures were not followed in order to save money.

Now the mother – who won an injunction to have her son returned to her immediately – is seeking damages from Anglesey County Council in North Wales.’

They’re SEXUALISATION of our Children Isn’t Going Unnoticed! Shock Video Catches Planned Parenthood Teaching Teens S&M Sex: Gagging, Whipping and Asphyxiation

Shock Video Catches Planned Parenthood Teaching Teens S&M Sex: Gagging, Whipping and Asphyxiation

BjcNX7YIgAAyRII

A mass forced indoctrination programme written by psychopathic ruling elites who control the education agenda want our children and our children’s minds.

Street Democracy writes:

The blurring the lines of sexual decency, of sexual activities and weirdo sexual exploits is being zoomed into our already confused, messed up and sexualised youth and children.

The psychopathic sexual predator in places of power is determined to turn society into a sordid depraved and sleazy place and to corrupt the minds of the young by expressing their sexual rights and not to listen to parents.

1378849_687044791320256_468368329_n

They want the normalisation of paedophilia to be on the agenda. They want our children to be sexualised from birth. We cannot allow these psychopaths to take our children.

The sleaze our young are forced to witness in the corrupt seedy world of celebrity and pop music videos is often no better than pornographic to turn our young minds into sexually active slaves.

I use the term slaves as their minds were pure to express childhood in the ways of a healthy child but with the State corrupt their minds, their minds are no longer their own.

Bmegt4eIMAAj4fA

No encouragement of creative and critical thinking but a mass sexual grooming of small children to adopt sexual depravities to suite the paedophiles in charge of our society.

Cheap, no talent but highly sexualised celebrities are stealing our children, robbing them of a healthy childhood for one that is grossly over sexualised to emphasise this as normal and liberating is beyond a scandal and is a disgrace.

The abortion clinics are rubbing their hands with glee as they want the business and couldn’t care less of the aborted babies, they just want the young pregnant girls under the knife.

BmszJ-oCcAAweJN

Who owns the publishing companies and who controls what our children read at school? Who controls our education system?

The over stimulating morbid unhealthy sexualisation is corrupting the minds of our society and these sick ruling elites want a depraved world to suit their depraved minds and altering the conscious levels of children is they way of doing it.

We cannot let these sick sub-human depraved but powerful and wealthy paedophiles control our children’s minds.

Shock Video Catches Planned Parenthood Teaching Teens S&M Sex: Gagging, Whipping and Asphyxiation

 

‘A shocking new video Live Action released today catches the Planned Parenthood abortion business teaching teenagers about S&M-based sexual relationships and concepts such as gagging, whipping and asphyxiation.

In a series of undercover audits, Live Action investigators documented Planned Parenthood counselors and nurses advising our investigators, who the Planned Parenthood staffers thought were minors, on how to practice torture sex.

In the videos, Planned Parenthood counselors encourage undercover investigators posting as 15 and 16-year-old teens, to engage in the sadomasochistic practices, telling the underage teens “if it’s consensual, it’s OK… it’s totally OK.”’

The misery in the voices of the unemployed as they stand or sit waiting for their privacy to be violated by some charged up, power hungry work programme consultant is painful to hear.

They are not socially elevating the unemployed into positions of respect and large salary positions to the deserving innately decent sensitive poor, but more like a carnival of mental torture instead.

It is a form of mind rape as the barrage of intimate questions come hollowing at you, by a commanding dialogue of speak of loose your vital money, is outrageous and is blackmail.

BkjBxfTIYAAHIIr

A corrupt parasitical mechanism to destroy the psyche of the poor, enslave them, blame them and crush them.

They are doing nothing but transmitting disease gutter policies that amplify misery, magnify a corrupt government to crush the poor but mostly to control the poor.

These work programmes have been designed by ‘think tanks’ disconnected socially and have infiltrated aggressive austerity programmes that look good on paper.

minimum-wage-poverty

Organisations are standardising blackmail, localising bullying and controlling the poor and not even in the right direction either.

In reality these are detention centre’s intricately imposing, and are needlessly sterile instruments of control.

In reality these consultants are localising bullying, standardising blackmail and controlling the vulnerable poor as if they are commodities to be controlled.

What they are not doing is socially elevating the poor, aiding the desperately ill in positions of employment far removed from slave labouring and minimum wage to give them career fulfilment to suit their individual needs.

BlHuzoGIcAAZIbw

Fact, the unemployed are not slaves, we’re not to be disrespected either. We’re treated like vermin, and socially demonised as parasitical. Yet, we are innately decent people trying our best in a cut throat world too, with ill health and no money, its almost impossible.

They are not elevating the working poor out of the cycle of deprivation.

The poor are not receiving large quantities of respect and are not treated as innately decent people.

The poor, the unemployed are instead, regularly hounded, are harassed and pushed forward towards sordid work positions available.

430847_149933881824335_1645102229_n-1

People need time to heal. People need time to be new mothers and fathers, they need time to adjust to disabilities before being pushed out into the job market with added cold scorn like it is today.

This class warfare guarantee’s hard gruel labour, or dead end work placements, guaranteed to make your feet and hands sore while being paid pea nuts.

Your pushed forward to work in a type of hell, a work position that is in a social black hole of no empathy, no decent pay, no respect and no prospects.

BiSBZLlIEAACvQj

This parasite is psychopathic following a psychopathic Tory main frame- but worse is localised organisations adopting this ideology and giving it the power necessary to hound the poor with.

Work placements guaranteed to destroy what little health you had left and you have no choice but to go along or face hunger and serious money deprivation with benefit sanctions.

This sounds like a ‘Gulag Society’  to me.

A Punishing State treating the unemployed as one social annoyance a plague or parasite and is beyond wrong in every way.

Councils and housing organisations to boycott workfare programme 

By Inside Housing-Pictures displayed by Street Democracy.

Around 350 charity organisations have signed up to boycott the community work placement part of the government’s workfare programme, including 13 councils, two housing organisations and a selection of homelessness charities.

jobcentre-plus

The Keep Volunteering Voluntary campaign has said that 345 organisations have agreed to boycott the programme, including Habinteg Housing Association, Your Homes Newcastle Youth Voice, Shelter, Shelter Cymru and Swansea Young Single Homeless Project.

Union Unite has also signed up and, through its Unite Against Workfare campaign, has already secured agreements from several councils that they will not take workfare placements. These councils have said they will also encourage contractors to do the same.

The 13 councils that have signed up at present are: Barking and Dagenham, Brent, Burnley, Edinburgh, Ipswich, Islington, Lambeth, Norwich, South Tyneside, St Helens, Sunderland, Thurrock and Wakefield.

The scheme is part of the government’s help to work programme under which participants must either sign on at a Jobcentre every day, take up a training course or carry out a six-month, 30-hour-a-week placement.

The KVV said opposition to the scheme appears to be related to the community work placement element being delayed. the help to work scheme was launched on 28 April, and these placements should have already begun, according to the campaign.

A spokesperson for the Department for Work and Pensions said: ‘Referrals to the placements have begun and the placements will begin shortly. There has been no delay. Charities are under no obligation to be in the scheme, but those who are recognise the benefits of it.’

We have to endure an unwanted attachment with Job Centre staff and other administrations of a forced intimacy with a no empathy or decent answers to gain employment or benefits.

With the current Tory benefit policies, democracy for the unemployed has been incinerated and the voices of the poor, silenced for if you wish to receive your benefits, you must comply!

2 Jun 2014 — Esther McVey, the Conservatives DWP minister, has refused to appear before the Welfare Reform Committee but agreed to a private meeting with members Now McVey has cancelled her planned visit.

Work and Pensions secretary Iain Duncan Smith previously refused to appear at the committee and instead had an informal off the record meeting with MSPs. And Lord Freud, another DWP minister, has also refused requests to attend The Scottish Parliament.

Labour and SNP have accused the Tory ministers of being scared to account for the impact their policies have on vulnerable people. Committee Convener Michael McMahon MSP said: “We wanted a public meeting, sooner rather than later. “Instead, we get a private meeting that’s eventually cancelled. How insulting to the people.

“Ms McVey can run but she can’t hide from our committee.

She has to account for the impact of her department on the most vulnerable in society.” http://t.co/S46fGQuCGM

Washington Worries Boko Haram Planning Attack on U.S. Interests in Africa (They should stop funding and arming them then)

‘”Fragmentary evidence” and a sense of inevitability that Boko Haram may be planning an attack on U.S. interests in Nigeria has intelligence and counterterrorism officials in Washington on alert.

U.S. intelligence officials, speaking with NBC News on condition of anonymity, declined to characterize the nature of the evidence, other than to say it was recent and non-specific. But they said it is prompting efforts to locate the terrorist group’s “military assets” and identify other senior leaders beyond Abubakar Shekau.

They also said that Boko Haram’s desire to strike against a U.S. target apparently has been heightened by the increasing U.S. involvement in the hunt for 276 missing Nigerian schoolgirls abducted by the group last month, though the goal itself is not new.’

A ‘Punishing Dialogue’ is having an effect by those benefit staff forced to regurgitate such cruel Tory policies.

Street Democracy writes:

It is almost nice to know some human emotions remain by Job Centre benefit staff up and down the UK.

For so long now, the harsh treatments of benefit sanctions and the obliteration of empathy has over spilled into the lives of the poorest and most vulnerable groups who are unable to stand up for themselves.

The Job Centre has become a detention centre with a punishing atmosphere the moment you arrive, isn’t inspiring for the unemployed or, according to this report, for the staff.

430847_149933881824335_1645102229_n-1

They have taken our legal rights away with no legal aid we the poor cannot stand up for ourselves.

Vocally intensified financial blackmail of ‘do as we say or we dock your benefits’ is echoed with every word or comments from Job Centre staff.

It automatically silences you from you views, your opinions and natural emotions and you cannot disagree.

It leaves the DWP to instigate cruel dialogues towards benefit claimants and there is nothing we can do about it.

10325255_762251357148113_5318466948222745598_n

Will aid towards benefit sanctions and the obliteration of empathy and all the while this corporation is totally immoral in its own ethics.

When you arrive at the Job Centre you are greeted by discourteous G4S heavy weight bouncers making sure you feel most uncomfortable and it is a statement of ‘do not complain or disagree with any decision-making within these walls’.

However, you have to be almost a ruthless individual not to feel any remorse or guilt at the benefit slaughter-house and seeing the eyes of despair as you economically sanction and destroy the lives of the poor.

It just feels the ethics now invented by the DWP are forcing the staff at the local Job Centre’s to deliberately agitate, destabilise and harm people, rather than help.

Citizens Advice office

People have left in tears after having interviews with Job Centre staff. To be forced into hard long hours of low pay that makes your feet and your hands sore, never mind your back and neck isn’t what the poor need.

It isn’t at all surprising people working there are becoming depressed as you do become as toxic as the policies you embrace and become as harmful as the polices do harm.

JobCentre Staff Say They Are ‘Depressed’ Because Of Sanctioning by samedifference1

Labour exchange employees say they are ‘depressed’ by making people destitute on the orders of Work and Pensions Secretary Iain Duncan Smith

FRONTLINE Jobcentre staff renewed their campaign yesterday to scrap Tory benefit sanctions they are forced to hand down to Britain’s worst off.

Civil servants protested at PCS conference about the impact of the government’s welfare policies they witness everyday at work.

Unemployment benefit of just £71 per week can be stopped for two weeks under sanctions introduced by Work and Pensions Secretary Iain Duncan Smith.

Jobcentre worker Martin Humphrey told delegates about the “depressing” task of telling people their benefits have been stopped.

He said: “We have to say to people that they have to live on nothing for two weeks.

“To make people destitute for two weeks is despicable.”

Jobcentre staff exposed once again how they are given sanction targets to hit — a claim Mr Duncan Smith continues to deny.

Those innately decent and sensitive folk that cannot cope in such a demanding heavyweight world of hard labouring work, and not by choice, but by their physical and medical ailments dictate they can’t.

Comment: The ruling which reveals IDS’ campaign of secrecy over universal credit

Iain Duncan Smith continues to hide reports showing failure of universal credit By Politics.CO.UK

The Department of Work and Pensions (DWP) is continuing to block publication of reports set to reveal the failure of the Universal Credit scheme, despite a series of rulings insisting they should be released.

The department submitted a further appeal to the upper tier information tribunal, yesterday afternoon.

The scheme described as the biggest reform to welfare since Beveridge, was meant to begin last autumn, but has been beset by huge problems and delays since it was first conceived by Iain Duncan Smith.

A damning report by the National Audit Office last year found “the programme suffered from weak management, ineffective control and poor governance,” and “has not achieved value for money.”

oUCh – Universal Credit’s disastrous figures for social landlords and social housing

A few days ago there was an article in the Independent about the first year of Universal Credit in Warrington entitled Universal Credit isn’t working. The reason I am commenting here is that I suspect THE major issue has been missed although stated in the article – the cost to landlords of about £1300 per tenant per year.

Yes I did say £1300 per tenant per year!…oUCh! oUCh! oUCh!

r-iain-duncan-smith-dwp-large570

The article was well read and circulated and Peter Fitzhenry Director of Golden Gates Housing – the former council housing department – was rightfully scathing over the policy and the article featured:-

Payments have been so haphazard that 92 per cent of those on Golden Gate’s books using the new benefit are in rent arrears, and two have been evicted since moving on to it. A further 13 are on suspended possession orders or notices seeking possession. Typically, around half of housing association tenants on housing benefit are in rent arrears, according to the Department for Work and Pensions (DWP). “The problem seems to be that the scheme is running but they’re making it up as they go along”, said Mr Fitzhenry

The above was the focus of attention across Twitter, Facebook other social media and also reported in Inside Housing and 24Dash and the ‘usual suspects’ retweeting and disseminating the horrendous figures as you would expect  with 92% in arrears and a further 13 on SPOs etc.

Yet one later comment stood out for me which has received scant discussion or comment: –

Because of the small scale of the pilot, only 40 of Golden Gate’s 8,700 tenants are on universal credit, but the housing trust has had to dedicate two full-time staff to chasing DWP payments for those on it.

Whoa!….40 tenants on UC (and even set aside only the simplest cases of single people are piloted here on UC) yet the landlord has needed to take on TWO ADDITIONAL FULL TIME MEMBERS OF STAFF TO DEAL WITH THIS.

Two full-time members of staff including on-costs is a cost to the landlord of £50k+ per year for 40 tenants so about £1300 per tenant per year or about £26 per week per UC tenant collecting rent!

That can only have one of two outcomes.  Either the landlord goes bust or rents will need to increase by £26 per week to cover the landlord’s increased expenditure in collecting rent – and specifically in chasing the DWP who ‘make it up as they go along’ says Peter Fitzhenry.

“There are men in all ages who mean to govern well, but they mean to govern. They promise to be good masters, but they mean to be masters”

Two things everyone on the planet needs to know. We have had a system of ‘legal’ fiction imposed upon us called maritime law. It is a fiction. There is no such thing except aboard a ship at sea.

Second, those in the United States, please recall that each of the fifty states is sovereign. That has never ever been dissolved, never would be, and the states had collectively agreed to act as a body for certain purposes. That body and the states within it, are being illegally managed by the separate corporation that is Washington DC.

There are three such corporations: Washington DC, The City of London, and Vatican City.

Here’s the third thing everyone needs to know, actually:

FULLY CONSTITUTED STATES

11 States have constituted the Administration of the Common Law Jury in all counties: New York 2-27-14; Florida 3-15-14; Connecticut 3-15-14; Rhode Island 3-15-14; New Jersey 3-22-14; New Hampshire 3-29-14; Arizona 3-31-14; Massachusetts 4-1-14; Maryland 4-5-14; Maine 4-12-14; Washington 5-18-14

Next time you see anything visual… a photo or a news report or a video or even a film that includes a courtroom or perhaps a political press conference, have a good look at the flags flying in the picture. No matter what country is represented by such flag, if it bears a gold braid border it is a signal that this entity is under “maritime law.” That means that a courthouse is a ship, essentially, and the judge is the captain of the ship in the wheelhouse.

The gold fringe is not part of the American flag known as the Stars and Stripes, but it is a legal symbol indicating that the court, government building, school or soldier is operating under British Maritime Law and the Uniform Commercial Code; military and merchant law.
