FUND-a-Mentals of Conciliation Court: Who Holds the Keys to the Vault / See the Matrix

leave a comment »

Continued from “There is in the State Treasury a Family Law Trust Fund. (Cal. Family Conciliation Code Section 1852)

In a dutiful effort to shorten my posts, I split this one in half. Because, it’s time to review How Federal Law Grants matches previously-pushed-through Conciliation Law. Federal Money, County-State money (through fees) + Rights to Judge the Case (State Conciliation Codes enable by-county, in-the-opinion-of-the-presiding-judge set up of these specialized courts).

We have already established that “There is in the State Treasury a Family Law Trust Fund,” and that under Public Health and other “fees-for-service” (marriage certficates, dissolution certificates, etc.) certain of those fees get deposited into this fund. Brilliant advance planning to set this up.

As in California, I imagine this is true for most 50 states. I also now know where to look this specific fund in California (hence also in other states) up, and how much was in it for a specific year. The same source also details what types of funds (including plenty relating to the courts, and child support etc.) are held in bank accounts OUTSIDE the State Treasury.

But this post is about how CONCILIATION LAW was crafted to grab jurisdiction of cases to order the exact things which Access and Visitation Funding Federal Grants (under the Social Security Act, PRWORA) as of 1996 set in place funding for, and the exact situation that groups like the Children’s Rights Council, the (eventual) National Fatherhood Initiative, and others were already wanting — mandatory mediation, joint custody, order services — we’ll standardize and regulate the services, too…

“See the Matrix.”

Many distraught parents love to, with their leadership as they have been taught, complain (endlessly) about the family courts promoting “parental alienation” and recommend, hire some professionals to train the bad judges out of believing in parental alienation (Barry Goldstein, BMCC, The Leadership Council, CPPA, MOLC, and others).

Simultaneously, “to the contrary” are those who believe parental alienation is so bad it should be punished by completely removing the child/ren from the offending (alienating) parent. How that is not itself alienation beats me — but either way, I can prove (and have on this blog, will again on this post) that a primary organization pushing parental alienation theory through the courts is indeed AFCC (see the early newsletters in my Vital Links at bottom of page), and that this was planned as far back as the 1980s, if not further. In the next post, we can connect the dots easily through a federal site.

ALWAYS Note the Nonprofits!!

Remember: people belong to more than one nonprofit at a time. Using Nonprofits is a key technique.

When you have one nonprofit that contains people running courts (administrative), judges over the courts, including specialized conciliation courts, attorneys, and psychologists — and that one ALSO has nonprofits of judges, nonprofits of psychologists, and the all-pervasive nonprofits of attorneys (State, county, local bar associations), and even (see 1983/84 newsletters) a nonprofit called “The National Center for State Courts” which itself manages several subsidiary nonprofits — and NCSC became “Secretariat” (they decided to help support the systems and administration) of the AFCC — I think we have a rather powerful network of organizations, and we have a collaborative agenda. For the most part, John Q and Jane Doe are not in on the collaboration; they will be either subject to it, or funding it through income taxes, etc. and through filing for certificates of marriage, divorce, court fees etc.

Behind the nonprofits — and this needs to be stated LOUD and CLEAR, are The Rockefeller, the Carnegie, the Rhodes, or the Ford Foundation (although some of their personnel are funded by those, and other foundations) but they still should be scrutinized as they are getting laws passed that affect (hurt) all of us. In order of influence, the Foundations drive, the matrix of nonprofits enable (both need each other) and help muddy the picture for the public such that we think we still have moderately representative government, or the potential for it without confronting the private funding.

Why Can’t Some “See the Matrix”?

For one, it requires conceptual thinking, a REAL challenge when your kids are about to be stolen, or just have been (or molested, or are being), or your life is at risk. For another, certain groups of professionals whose kids and lives are NOT at risk, or at such great and immediate risk, and who are not at risk of being homeless from month to month if something goes south on a court case — make sure to self-censor key elements of the picture that might make US less dependent on THEM for insight, for finances, and for a voice (i.e., a press presence).

A Stunning Validation by Jeffrey Moussaieff Masson: The Assault on Truth, The Origins of Psychoanalysis

with 15 comments

A key issue in the courts includes sexual assault and violence towards women and children. This has also been a key issue with psychoanalysis. Cummings is a psychoanalyst, or has been one.

The key, or leading edge, feature OF these courts includes therapeutic jurisprudence, attempting to resolve conflict through addition of behavioral health professionals, the field Dr. Cummings has dedicated much of his life to preserving the business and economic well-being of, to the point that a Wall Street Journal article reported, not too many years ago, that — doctors and hardcore professionals aside, among the top highest paying professional jobs, including the benefits and actual hours worked to earn the pay, were: Judges, and (with a doctorate) psychologists.

He is also well-informed in his field, has been a psychoanalyst, and very likely knew of this other psychoanalyst’s, Mr. Masson’s, 1980s allegations of Anna Freud’s censorship of her father’s letters, which cast an entirely different light on what “The Etiology of Hysteria” is.

Time to read this statement of “The Assault on Truth, The Origins of Psychoanalysis .

(I notice the Cummings Foundation site also got a facelift since my last visits).

I feel it’s only fair to warn people which path they are going down. If they want to ignore the warnings, then it’s not my problem, other than when it’s draining attention and energies from more critical analyses — which this movement IS, and is probably intended to do.

As soon as I saw the January 2012 advertisement (at the SF Center for Psychoanalysis) of an upcoming March 2012 “FREE TRAINING IN ARIZONA” I blogged it, Our Broken Family Court” isn’t. It ain’t “Ours” and it ain’t “Broken.” That phrase is a “tell.” I’ll tell you why…. [excerpt:]

Donner authored an excellent article {bold added} by the same title in Psychoanalytic Psychology. Contact him (HERE) to request a copy of “Tearing Children Apart: The Contribution of Narcissism, Envy and Perverse Modes of Thought to Child Custody Wars.” [see FN3 LGH, below]

Our broken family court system: Free training in Arizona

Another free training geared toward child custody evaluators is coming up March 16-17 [2012] in Phoenix, Arizona. Co-sponsored by the National Alliance of Professional Psychology Providers and the Nicholas and Dorothy Cummings Foundation, it features a cast of well-known experts, including:

More information and online registration is available HERE.

How much of this “Broken Courts” buzzwords (spoken by the people who have the answers, which naturally involves buying certain products, trainings, and consultations, by the same, on how to fix it) — is enough?

When is anyone (else) going to actually, literally, develop the habit of running background checks on charming, or wealthy strangers who approach them (or into whose strong, authoritative, and competent, OPEN ARMS someone is tempted to dash for sympathy and protection — or for money). Wasn’t that, ladies, part of what got you into an abusive relationship to start with? Handsome strangers, charming, eloquent and INTERESTED IN YOU?

I do this consistently. It’s been a great source of learning, enriched my understanding of this vital field, and moreover, helped me screen out the liars and dissemblers (those who don’t quite lie, literally, but systematically “forget” to reveal who they really are, and what is the agenda, which you get to find out later — after the situation is further compromised, you have less time, money and energy left, and in some cases, in which it’s just plain too late to extricate onesself – – or one’s kids). I will explain this further, separately.


FYI, I found the material on Freud’s Archives/Jeffrey M. M. while looking up the background of the Cummings Foundation and Nicholas Cummings.

One thing about investigating, looking things up: be prepared to have world view turned upside down (or the sense that something IS upside down, or backwards as presented in public confirmed). In this case, regardless of who this man was personally, at the point of insisting to publish about the Freud coverup, he was acting in the public interest.

Post-Published Note. First published Feb. 2013.

In Dec. 2013, realizing in ongoing conversations and further readings how central this topic is to the family and conciliation court systems, including possibly why we even have them to start with, I re-arranged, moving a major section to the top of the post. Therefore further introductory sections may seem out of sequence.

I think EVERYONE concerned with the courts, even though I know I primarily focus on the economic factors, should read this material. Jeffrey Moussaieff Masson was highly qualified, had access to the Freud archives, documents how censorship of his work after 1897 continued even up to the 1950s, when the letters were compiled (including by his daughter Anna), constituting “The Origins of Psychoanalysis.”

“There is in the State Treasury the Family Law Trust Fund….”

with one comment

Huh???

When I read that, it reminded me of an old spiritual —  sing it slow, repeatedly, and with feeling, if you want to feel better, temporarily, before returning to work for “the man” in the house or in the fields. Seriously…..

There is a balm in Gilead, to make the wounded whole, There is a balm in Gilead to heal the sin-sick soul.”

That’s the refrain; here’s the rest (including repeated refrain). This is an African-American Spiritual. To really appreciate, search to hear it on-line, preferably with words like “Tuskeegee” or “Moses Hogan” or “Paul Robeson” “Mahalia Jackson” or something with the word “Brooklyn” in it, moreso than, say, “St. Olaf Choir” after the title. It’s a classic, and has obvious appeal.

Sometimes I feel discouraged and think my work’s in vain,
But then the Holy Spirit revives my soul again.
There is a balm in Gilead to make the wounded whole;
There is a balm in Gilead to heal the sin sick soul.

If you cannot preach like Peter, if you cannot pray like Paul,
You can tell the love of Jesus and say, “He died for all.”
There is a balm in Gilead to make the wounded whole;
There is a balm in Gilead to heal the sin sick soul.

Don’t ever feel discouraged, for Jesus is your friend;
And if you lack for knowledge, He’ll never refuse to lend.
There is a balm in Gilead to make the wounded whole;
There is a balm in Gilead to heal the sin sick soul.


Don’t worry — this post starts out religious for purposes of expression, but we are getting down to the business mentioned in its title. This Fund does exist, has a fund number, shows up on various reports, and it’s also possible to see where at least the public part of its contents come from.

More posts forthcoming also…should confirm that the primary purpose of government (as it exists now) is, as the primary purpose of most corporations, to raise money by selling things — like rights to the labor of others’ bodies and souls….

No doubt there is some a Balm in Gilead, or at least a transformational, warming (balmy?) emotion shared after singing it (or hearing it sung).  This goes a long way towards TEMPORARILY healing the sickening gut feeling, a legitimate instinctive response to exposure of what humans can now, and always have done to those arrogantly classified as “the other” — and how exactly how they do it.  I’ve experienced it.

I’ve also been heartwarmed time and again by people who helped me recover long enough from a recent violent incident in order to go on, and get back in that same situation (until that DV order with kick out was served!) — but after all this IN the home, and the Conciliation Court paradigm (i.e., how smart is this? …forcible co-parenting with a batterer whose first assaults began with one’s pregnancy) years of other struggles and hearings (minus any protection) AFTER separation, that all my supportive personnel (friends, colleagues, etc.) were no better equipped (including equipped with KNOWLEDGE) than I  to do more than refresh me before another round in the boxing ring. Unfortunately, we have not yet found the recipe to force the courts to quit hauling one victim in front of one parent in the FAMILY CONCILIATION COURT venues…

{{a closer reading of conciliation law will “shine a light” on how this is done — a jurisdiction grab, that is…}}

WHY? — People in this support system, of people traumatized by these courts, had to preserve their own jobs, integrity, and from their point of view, they already pay taxes to handle these issues (allegedly that’s why they pay taxes). It’s also clear that we can’t stop the entire apparatus alone, one person by one person — and even that complaining about it hasn’t change business as usual. If they were to actually address the issue, many idols would bite the dust, so to say — many myths be exploded, particularly on what their income taxes are being used for, or that these income taxes are even necessary to start with!

My support people, basically bystanders who saw what was happening week by week, month by month, and year by year, don’t run to the criminal sort and didn’t know WHO (government + nonprofits/for-profits) has been both staging and placing bets on the fight, or HOW it was set it up the family law paradigms. But now they are being informed….

SO, WHERE IS THAT BALM?

Perhaps taking clear action to stop the slave trade or as we now call it more politically correct, “human trafficking” or “child trafficking,”, i.e., the selling of souls for profit would be a healing balm, perhaps it would start to restore the soul in THIS life. See Isaiah 58, “That ye break every yoke.”

6 Is not this the fast that I have chosen? to loose the bonds of wickedness, to undo the bands of the yoke, and to let the oppressed go free, and that ye break every yoke?

{{sounds like they had the power to do this, as the oppressors…doesn’t say, go rescue them — says, “let them go free.” So who was oppressing?}}

7 Is it not to deal thy bread to the hungry, and that thou bring the poor that are cast out to thy house? when thou seest the naked, that thou cover him; and that thou hide not thyself from thine own flesh?

8 Then shall thy light break forth as the morning, and thy healing shall spring forth speedily: and thy righteousness shall go before thee; the glory of the LORD shall be thy rearward.

9 Then shalt thou call, and the LORD shall answer; thou shalt cry, and he shall say, Here I am. If thou take away from the midst of thee the yoke, the putting forth of the finger, and speaking wickedly;

{{sounds like this yoke was in the middle of the people, not the other side of the globe….}}

10 and if thou draw out thy soul to the hungry, and satisfy the afflicted soul; then shall thy light rise in darkness, and thine obscurity be as the noonday:

11 and the LORD shall guide thee continually, and satisfy thy soul in dry places, and make strong thy bones; and thou shalt be like a watered garden, and like a spring of water, whose waters fail not.

Who put those yokes, and bonds on to start with, who was oppressing? Where was that yoke? Whatever it WAS, today we find written right into our legal code, many “yokes” and financial burdens (fees to support funds like the one mentioned here) to build hard-labor harnesses for the lower and middle class…and then we put the reins in the hands of those who helped set up that same code for their own benefit. That’s a good investment, getting people to endorse and even pay for and construct — their own traps, harnesses, yokes, etc.

How can people be persuaded to do this? Well, the combo of force, confusion (deceit) and relentless propaganda helps….. Confound the meanings of words, tell them it’s good for ‘em. Construct some gods to worship


“I knows yer Bible” — and I also know that no tax-exempt from even reporting religious organization is  going to report on this (heck, they don’t even report much on regular domestic violence laws, let alone on how the family code gets around it through conciliation laws).  I also know that the Jesus Christ that is supposed to come back and issue JUDGMENT, according to the last book in the Book, is also opposed to slave-trading (see Rev. 18 or so), and lays the bloodshed of the world at the foot of the merchants of the world.  Seems to me someone had a little insight (or, a lot) there, still true today.

While on that theme…as to religion and tax-exemptions:

I felt pretty sick, too, on reading the tax return of “Young Life” yesterday, based in Colorado Springs, and with boards of directors that are mostly men, and mostly white,  in other words that simply don’t look like what America even looks like (4 women out of 22 shown, and very little color.  Powerpacked board includes the Governor of Tennessee, Chairman of a sports team, etc.). Divisional Veeps: 1 woman out of 9 positions;  and a Cabinet, not much different. (those are photos).   Their tax return is 67 pages long.

And that Madison Avenue Presby (MAPC) in NYC (large enough for you?) has been contributing to local outreach overlapping with this organization, while screwing its own (female) membership out of their property, mistreating its janitorial (African American) staff who were unionized while the overseers were not, and what looks like strategizing in advance to retaliate upon any one who stood up to them.

AND it looks like (MAPC) over-billing for basic repairs (the $169K toilets, invoice being $90K factor), AND allowing church property to be used by others for financing completely un-related deals, and their receipts aren’t exactly under scrutiny either.  The YoungLife organization is about $250 million, and owns a for-profit in Colorado, and a Yacht company in Canada; their “CEO” type (Dennis Ryberg) has about $415K in compensation (and many  others, well over $150K salaries)  and among their boards is the Governor of Tennessee.  They are wiring money all over the globe (especially Central America) in re: their tax-exempt purpose:  exposing people to the person of Jesus Christ through personal religious experiences (at camps and getaways, weekly Bible studies, etc..”  In other words, we are subsidizing that stuff.  (contact me if you want details, or find them yourself!).

So, until justice happens we are going to need all kinds of balms, salves (I don’t recommend Rxes) and lots of great music probably, to survive.

BUT

In this post I am going to “lend” us some knowledge about a few other things….and maybe it will be healing to the soul.   

Who knows if understanding where the money comes from –how we pay the state to transfer money to the family law trust fund,

How that family trust fund gets used,

Exposing and Prosecuting Judicial Corruption through Common Law Discovery (1997 Interview)

with 8 comments

This Post is Sticky (one of about 5 sticky posts) and stays near the top. Others are below. Also, I just moved the “Supervised Visitation” section to a separate post (and of course expanded that one) on 6/6/2013.

File this Article under “What a Difference One Person can Make, if that person:

Has Guts, Will Obtain Evidence, Look at Evidence, Come to Logical Conclusion regarding Evidence Obtained AND Publicize It!

Includes Marv Bryer’s discoveries, especially in the mid- to late 1990s.

Exposing and Prosecuting Judicial Corruption Through Common Law Discovery

1997 interview with Marv Bryer.

[I ASK READERS: ] Can you read 7 pages “for the cause”? And think about it?

If given a brief pop-quiz of about 10th grade level on what it’s talking about, how much of the vocabulary or ideas could you remember?


Marvin Bryer’s discoveries began when his daughter was involved in a custody battle for her son. Apparently a judge received a bribe to rule against Mr. Bryer’s daughter, and as a result Mr. Bryer discovered a judicial slush fund bank account, and a common law discovery for overcoming judicial immunity.

Right away, we are in the financial category: Bribe, Slush Fund, Bank account, overcoming judicial immunity.

Underneath this, I also pointed out that (for example, in California) the shifting of literally trial courts, to the state level away from the local, AND of the workforce (county employees) of the courts to become instead trial court employees — moves the entire power structure up to the state level — but under Administration (“AOC”).  What does this mean?  How about shifting the bureaucracy of court operations up to the State level, where it’s harder to sue (see “immunity”).  It also centralizes power and control — and for this matter, I have not note that “AFCC” is very active at the state level under this particular Judicial Council’s AOC.

Table is repeated below:

Report From Judges Blasts California Court Bureaucracy By MARIA DINZEO  ShareThis        SAN FRANCISCO (CN) – In a sweeping call for reform of the Administrative Office of the Courts, a report from a committee of judges found the agency has been operated as the director’s fiefdom, has strayed far from its original path and has been deceptive about finances and personnel. The judges also criticized the bureaucracy as top-heavy, overpaid and badly organized.       Their long-awaited report proposes a drastic reorganization that includes cutting the staff by one-third and moving the agency from its lavish San Francisco headquarters to a cheaper space in Sacramento.

In the 221-page, 11-chapter document, the Strategic Evaluation Committee also recommended cutting high-level positions, closing regional offices and eliminating entire divisions of the vast bureaucracy that sits atop the court system.      Based on a year-long investigation, the massive, crisply-worded report does not pull its punches.

That 221 page document should be read– it shows the centralization and expansion of control in the administrative sector.

What It’s Still About….(… in Summer 2013)

with one comment

(Post title changed to remove “Election Year Update 2012.” The message is still appropriate now….Also in reviewing this post (and adding some quotes) I’m temporarily moving the “more” link further down the page, (in other words, the “abstract” is almost post-length) to call attention to the material.)


[This post is "sticky" and stays on top.  New posts are beneath . ..Some additions, March 2013...(As I learn more, it shows up on the blog). ~ Or see "The Last Seven Let's Get Honest Posts" links, on sidebar ~ better yet, See also my other blog Cold,Hard.Fact$]; 


This blog has VALUABLE INSIGHT on the family courts money trail (a trail of tears), and about many crisis intervention groups who are in on it (and hence, won’t blog it), and from some of whom I sought help, solace, or actionable information — and got NONE.  


Question: WHY would any group which truly wants to save lives withhold relevant information, tools to find that information, and prior ground-breaking conversations about that information — in the amounts of billions of dollars of federal incentives to the statesaffecting — custody outcomes (as to the child support system, HHS/OCSE) while feeding less helpful information to their clients?Another Question: You should also ask why — where is that money coming from, and why does our government always want to raise taxes when they can’t keep track of what they already collected (MUCH more than is commonly realized) and when a lot of that is simply fed to fraudulent or evanescent corporations that don’t stay registered at the state level?

When it’s a matter of eminent domain and someone gets sued over bribery, then it makes headlines and people get indignant. Daily News 2001, Los Angeles Area.

COURT MAY RECEIVE CLOSE AUDIT. 2001. Similarly, and around the same years, other people were asking questions about “court-connected” funds of a different sort. 2002, this one, there was a series of articles:‘SLUSH FUND’ PROBE POSSIBLE KUEHL MAY ASK FOR INQUIRY INTO JUDGES’ PROCEEDS.[one has to actually read these - I'm not outlining them for those who won't....]
This one in PARTICULAR shows that in 1999ff Marv Bryer and others were doing what I do now — reading tax returns, looking at the fronts of checks, looking at the BACKS of checks, and noticing that what’s written out to ONE fund sometimes gets deposited into another, which fund happens to be a private judges’ association.

Here’s a yet more detailed one (best: read the series; see “related articles”):

Outstanding in their Field. Now, about that Field… (Fatherhood Grantees/Practitioners)

leave a comment »

Again, I am only sampling a field that was sent in place decades ago, has major foundations supporting it (one should ask WHY) as well as the many resources of the HHS, and the “yeah, man — right up our alley!” of one too many tax-exempt religious foundations. Or, as you will, faith-based.

TAGGS.hhs.gov on this group (I searched by its EIN# — which is below).

Recipient Name City State ZIP Code County DUNS Number Sum of Awards
INST FOR RESPONSIBLE FATHERHOOD & FAM. REVITALIZATION  WASHINGTON DC 20019 DISTRICT OF COLUMBIA $ 2,549,350

 

Before we get too far into the economics of this field, I’d like to post a sample of what some of the DYNAMICS of it are about.  This 2001 Appeal is interesting because it incorporates how the court responds to evidence of injuring a child on visitation and severe violence (breaking a woman’s sternum and grabbing her by the throat) — that woman being the 2nd wife // stepmother — and because the man in question is on the board of (another — not the above) Fathers’ rights group based in WDC (ACFC).  This is one child — a girl, born in 1989 (divorce, 1991, first evidence of post-separation bruising of the girl, ca. 1996) and it covered two states, Michigan and Louisiana.  It’s a short-double-spaced read, and I hope you do.  Because at least in part — no offence to non-abusive Dads — this is also what the “FR’ movement is about — that FR are FR even when these things happen:

Lauren Hollingsworth v. James Semerad,

Appeal from 3rd Judicial District Court, Parish of Lincoln, Louisiana Trial Court No. 43,428~  Honorable R. Wayne Smith, Judge.

(Dad, see very far below same photo, looks like a very upstanding man):

Similar personnel to the ACFC group (far below) found on this one also:  Baskerville, Semerad, Mike McManus (who wants to do away with no-fault divorce), etc.  Click on link:

The Center for Marriage Policy

Dads of Michigan Related site, it says (read to see the spheres of influence involved & connection with another WDC organization, “ACFC”):

Rebuilding heterosexual marriage as the social norm is the necessary structural foundation for successful American socioeconomic reconstruction.

Among this testimony we can see both parents being court-ordered to attend a class, one of the (3) experts calling “parental alienation” but the testimony of the others (who felt the child to be credible, and not coached, esp. with the bruises) were concerned.  Moreover, it appears that the same father had literally broken the stepmom’s sternum and grabbed her throat’ they were divorcing.  he lied under oath about that event and had a new girlfriend to whom apparently the daughter was exposed.  It appears that the court’s response is simply to adjust the supervised visitation, not terminate it!  This Appeal in question comes fully 10 years after their divorce.  Get the picture?

Seriously, it’s a short read and covers many typical issues in family court these days in a case which divorce pre-dated welfare reform but still had the PAS charge…

Another POV on “The Center for the Family in Transition” (and its funders)

with 3 comments

[Blogger Note:  I added introductory paragraphs, and some updates on Aug 2, 2014.

I am currently continuing to write on the improper collusion of the court-reform/ Safe Kids groups who will NOT speak about these matters, with those who originally colluded to set them up, and to set up a variety of professions, for their private benefit and careers (although of course we are to believe this is for the public good) in and around the same courts.  See 6/29/2014 post referring to this one also.  There is valuable information (although in the form of multiple charts of different formats) about some of the key players in the family court system, which as we should know by now, is being promoted and restructured in large part through the vehicle of nonprofit trade associations functioning as systems-change, and PR (propaganda) vehicles, which “AFCC” is.  I think VERY few people have taken a close look, systematically, at how the larger and often the many smaller sets of nonprofits formed around key trade terms put forth by the larger (AFCC, NACC, etc.) groups function, I mean FISCALLY.  

I have done this, and come to understand the “collegial” habit of  certain professionals (whether academics or in the courts) setting up not just one — but multiple — foundations or nonprofits with similar name, and moving the money around i.e., reducing or evading accountability as nonprofits are required to produce for the public and the states they’re incorporated in, not to mention the IRS.  ONLY by looking these details u, can you see the pattern and start to comprehend the process, practices, and I’m going to add, purposes.  It’s hard to argue psychological issues with a PhD or Psy.D. professional convinced they have the expertise (and you don’t).  But anyone can look up and look at corporate filings, tax returns, and start putting this OBJECTIVE data (obtained from supposedly neutral, i.e., government, databases:  Secretary of State and Charitable Registries, plus some IRS or agency grants data.  Those are not “psychological” or subjective sources which can be dismissed so easily as “that’s just in your head,” or “You just said that to get control of the children.”


Exhortation (or if you will, “Rant”) added Aug. 2014.  May also be subtracted later:

I’m plenty aware of trauma.  I’m aware of safety issues.  I am a survivor of violence (all kinds), and am living every day with awareness of the things my children, families, and friends were put through, without due process or even (our case) legitimate causes of action.  I’m also aware that others in similar situation, sometimes VERY similar, ended up, in my own community and others, as roadkill, and around the same times.


HOWEVER, I recommend a complete conversation changeI’ve been recommending people who claim they want to clean up the courts, protect children, and fix broken things, pay better attention to the money trail (I’m not the first), and I have put up simple and straightforward tools to follow it, while using them myself, and developing better understanding.

This requires starting to understand it.  The problem I encounter the most:  People won’t even start!  It’s apparently more fun to follow the crowd, and blog the drama, the trauma, and the destruction.  But without learning even the basics of how custody decisions fit into the larger court-connected corporations context, this IMPORTANT information and “Family Court 101 basics” never makes it into most of the voluminous social media propaganda about the problems!

I have engaged in LOOKING AT COURT-CONNECTED CORPORATIONS AND PROGRAMS for at least 5 years now, personally, on the blog, and networked. It is NOT “rocket science”!!  It might be a little scary (how deep, wide and old the problems are does show up), but once you start,and develop the habit of paying attention,  it’s not even intellectually challenging.  Just get to the basic identifying information on any group, and from there, get a grasp on who’s funding it, and on other practices, such as compliant or noncompliant with required annual filings, tax returns, etc.  GET MORE TYPES OF BASIC (foundational) INFO on the GROUPS AND PEOPLE INVOLVED!  Get the structure of the group.

There’s also a chart on this page of what elements to look up for any particular group.  FIRST, get its identity, locate in PLACE (in the US, a corporation can have offices in many, or even ALL states, but only ONE state can be its “domestic” registration at a time.  Find that and find date or incorporation, and more.  Get a location, get an age, and get some objective information that may or  may not show on a website or in the PR:

There are of course other sources of funding:  For example, governments dedicate sometimes filing fees, special accounts, towards specific purposes.  It can be looked up, often, on the state comptroller’s page.  Find some of the funds, the list of funds, that are being set up to finance domestic violence, marriage promotion, family reunification, compromise of child support arrears, etc., in your state.  Research the basic organizations known about in your state, and the landscape will look quite different!  And of course, include the ones you’ve been hanging out with, regardless of which state they proceed in.  If these groups are mirroring the fiscal (i.e., setting up multiple small or empty corporations — or simply never bothering to file for incorporation) practices of groups they seek to reform, how is that reform going to happen, then?

I know just how resistant people are to acknowledging that their “friendly” groups have engaged in similar practices to the alleged “Bad guys.”  And I also know who (specific groups) has been deliberately dumbing down, derailing and simply ignoring this data, and failing to encourage followers to even THINK about it by failing to mention it.  Meanwhile group leadership systematically uses vague, and inaccurate words to describe major concepts, when an accurate term might lead to further investigation by followers.  This practice of dumbing-down-the-dialogue is insulting.  It comes from an intent to dominate that dialogue, and publish, conference, and be recognized as subject matter experts IN that dialogue.  I find it arrogant, and essentially dishonest.  It discourages open conversations on basic issues affecting the entire country.

This practice delays others getting vital information before it’s too late in their own custody cases, laying down a trail of destruction (custody disasters), which is then used to both intimidate and solicit more followers from ongoing generations of families figuring out too late, what “family court” means for them.

The information has been there all along.  It is up to people who are tired of participation in censored dialogues to figure out how to have different ones on their own.  I handled this a few years ago by dissociation.  I dissociated from the “BMCC” crowd, which also cut across mutually supportive friendships.  However, sticking around for more crazymaking was not an alternative. My decision to dissociate from these conversations freed up time and energies, and resulted in what you can see on this blog; an increased understanding and awareness of system operations, and a more legitimate foundation for activism.  I also learned that even strangers  not even involved in the courts CAN comprehend, when shown, what a tax return of a major grants-getting reform group has to tell them.  I show the numbers on the tax return, sources of income, and what causes the organization is promoting. If they get major grants, and I can show it, I show that.

This post is for people following the courts and/or involved in custody matters — it sheds light on one of the more influential (I think) sources of the “doctrines” of the family law personages . . . .

Consider it my “Notes” page after I discovered some off-the-track and oddball facts about some major players’ business behaviors.  It’s not outlined by priority, I switch from “teaching” to “lookups” quite a bit, and simply post, for what it’s worth…

Anyone who still believes the courts are “broken” or keeps repeating this phrase mindlessly needs his or her head examined — which is what the courts are about anyhow — and if you don’t understand this yet, you should by the end of this post!   Too many of the substantial, mandated, and sometimes federally incentivized programs run by (really “through”) the courts, often by people employed as public civil servants in them, or in their administrative sectors (i.e., directors of “family court services,” etc.)  are driven by cult-like mentality.  If you want out of the system, I suggest also — FIRST — quit any OTHER cults you’ve joined recently with bright ideas on what’s wrong with the courts and how to fix them, and who keep you focused on personalities (of judges, mediators, etc.) and psychologies — and not on identifiable facts that YOU can study,  in accompaniment with where to find some facts that are not (like I said), “mindless repetitions” or anecdotal hearsay.  If that shoe fits, take it off, please!

The term “Families in Transition” is Jargon, and it is virtually trademarked for use in the courts.  The term comes from, it seems, ONE individual with key connections to psychoanalysis (Judith Wallerstein, who was married to Robert S. Wallerstein, also a devoted and highly placed psychoanalyst, at one time President of the International Psychoanalytic Association, essentially the inheritance of Sigmund Freud. 

This association was formed shortly AFTER his excommunication (by colleagues) for ca. 1895 presenting “the Etiology of Hysteria” and saying it related to violent sexual and physical assaults on his patients by their caretakers (often fathers or uncles, etc.) from the early 1900s).   In the 1950s, “The Origins of Psychoanalysis” incl. editor Sigmund’s daughter Anna) apparently included censorship of how Freud viewed his own “about-face” after being cold-shouldered by his colleagues.  In the 1980s a man was given access to the Freud Archives and wrote about this, in the interest of speaking the truth, and was again could-shouldered, and taken off the archives also.

For more, see March 5, 2014 post “Suppose I’m Right Here ….What Would You Do When the Lights go on?” Seeing the Wallerstein-Wallerstein connection, and the consistent practice of re-framing reality (truths about person-to-person violence, including parent to child, man to woman, and vice versa), and the origins of the field of psychoanalysis, psychiatry, psychology, get it, the “Psyche” field in general — having been introduced as the bedrock formula for the conception of “FAMILY” and the “FAMILY COURTS” — are essentially crooked?  How can that be cleaned up?  Can it?  Does the propagation of truth versus the propagation of the coverup of the (often ugly) truth matter, or not?  If it does not matter, how can calling something “justice” be applied on top of that foundation?

THIS post looks at the corporate behaviors, and forming of multiple businesses with similar names based on this one phrase, and how these corporations managed their own finances, filings, and accountability to the State.  The track record is pitiful — it’s a slap in the face to the public from people who wish to direct the masses into their expert counseling and interpretations of reality.  Seeing the business filings is a wake-up call.  Failing to sleep it is sleepwalking, a semiconscious and suggestible (?) condition in which civil, legal, and personal freedoms get compromised.  As a survivor of marital violence that was heading for homicide until I got out, I am well aware of how this passive, “I see but it’s not my responsibility” state in any neighborhood or community invites violence and tyranny; including the economic controls and legal constraints the hinder people getting away from it, with small or growing children.

At the end of the “What Would You Do When the Lights go On?” post, I wrote:

SUPPOSE [SUPPOSITION #1] the bedrock elements of:

1. the Founding Families [and their bedrock principles & practices, literally the origins] of: AFCC (Conciliation Court model) Meyer Elkin, Stanley Cohen, Judith Wallerstein, Joan B Kelly, Janet Johnston, et. al.

  AND

2.  the Founding Families [and their bedrock principles & practices, literally the origins] of: the primary professions whose names begin with the four letters “PSYCH” (particularly PSYCHOANALYSIS), including among some of the most respected and decorated and published:  MD’s, Ph.D’s, Psy.D’s at some of the most respected and influential Universities in the USA.  Nationwide (US) and actually now internationally,

are, both of them individually and together, are essentially (in their essence, fundamentally, expressed most concisely) about two things:

1.   “An Assault on the Truth,” (see my “Stunning Validation of Jeffrey Mousaieff Masson” post of Feb. 5, 2013), meaning, a conscious and deliberate attempt by associated professionals to cover up, reframe and rename the primary traumatic experiences of violent physical and sexual assaults upon minor children by their caretakers; and of men upon women, particularly after the 1970s and 1980s when women began to find through separation, an escape from enduring it.##

AND

2. “JOINED AT THE HIP”

In-bred, inter-related, overlapping, self-referencing, common belief systems, simply different FUNCTIONS in service of the same goals, collectively.


AGAIN: [WHO: 1. the Founding families of AFCC-crowd and 2. Founding Families of the psycho-crowd (psychoanalysis, psychiatry, psychology, psychopharmacology, psychotherapy, psychodyamics — “PSYCH” get it?)

##See that post for the overview.  The ascendancy of AFCC and the family courts was indeed accelerated in the last half of the 1900s; AFCC’s own literature takes credit for this and dates the organization back to 1963, although technically speaking (as to business incorporation and business entities) this is a lie; they have been “outed” in the late 1990s and again are now being outed as tax cheats:  private conflict-of-interest professionals working without filing with the state for incorporation properly, and staying so incorporated right from the courthouses.  This has been known in many circles for a while, but minimized in most circles for too long.
