Absolutely Uncommon Analysis of Family –and "Conciliation" — Courts' Operations, Practices, and History

2017 Table of Contents Continues Themes From 2016.

leave a comment »

Rev. 1/12/2017

For 2017 Link to this post for this year2017 Table of Contents Continues Themes from 2016   I am writing mid-January, 2017, so all posts still display (for now) on “Most Recent Posts” on the sidebar.  The (short, so far) Table for 2017 however, is at the bottom of this page.

  • Valuable material in addition to the actual list (table) of posts remains on the 2016 post, but I included below on this post some images of the actual TOC 2016 (minus the extra narratives), which copied into a word-processing document, formatted, then “printed to pdf.” Printing to pdf and loading that pdf onto the blog (accessible by a single click on the link I provide) produces a document in which every post in that table can be accessed by clicking on its name.
    • This sounds more complex than it is.  Anyhow, after those images and the “access” link comes the Table for 2017, which I will add to as I publish each post. In fact it’s towards the end of this (so far, short) post.
  • As before, the right sidebar will display titles and links to only the last few posts.  I have it set to only eight.  The blog as a whole contains about 670 posts.

For 2016 ONLY with valuable material before/after:

It is now accessible in two formats — on-line, or a printed pdf (paginated to fit 8.5X11 format), as explained below (pdf completed added post-publication here).

I closed out 2016 with an average of one post a week (52 posts total). 

Link to, that post’s revised title:  {1}Table of Contents 2016 (52 posts Jan. 23 – Dec. 13, 2016) with {2} Intro on First 5 Years Fund(ing), incl. but not limited to Tobacco Lawsuit Settlement Payouts + Warren Buffett’s “Ounce of Prevention Fund”(IL) and {3} Appendix of Tags from some Critical-to-Understand Posts :

  • Introductions come first, so the order of material within the post obviously would be {2} Intro, {1} Table, {3} Appendix.  The most important part of post title is that it contains a Table of Contents.  So there you have it regarding minor conflicts of labeling systems (title vs. post itself).  Nothing new about that, so long as the context where each one applies is understood. But, can you keep straight conflicts between an organization’s self-disclosure on the websites and what the financials, fling history, and close organizational “friends” all reveal about the same entity, or as it often goes, “entities”?
  • I looked at one tax return today, representing several entities at one location, and found that the “disregarded entities” held positives assets controlled by ONE Form 990-filer (i.e., public charity) totaling over $60 million dollars among three LLCs.  Meanwhile they were declaring negative cash flow and on the same return a reference to a NEGATIVE $67M balance in their financial statements — the same return.  This entity had a board of only three officers — a married couple, and one other.  The entity was formed this century.  Collectively, however, the same leadership has many pots on the stove, so to speak.
  • Labeling, presentation, and categorization in accounting is apparently everything. Develop the ability to keep the background “ops” in mind (or at least know where to find them again if exact details not remembered) while reading the Public Relations Promotions (whether found on organization website, on a government website regarding the organization it is (like as not) partnering with, or even on — as I discovered again within the last three days — a well-known research university’s website.

For 6/2014 and earlier, back to 9/2012 ==>: My Posts, Just the List (June 29, 2014..back to Sept. 24, 2012. From Jan. 23, 2016 forward now available @ “Table of Contents 2016 ONLY” Post)

==> ==> My “New, Improved!” (perhaps easier to browse) Table of Posts in paginated, 8.5X11 viewing format, completed Wed. January 11, 2017 from the above post (only) link.  Click on the pdf, and know that all links on this pdf except a very few which may be an image of someone else’s website, are indeed active.  The main part looks similar to the images below; but this being so much longer, has different sections. Otherwise, I’ll add it to the 2014 post, and may publicize in its own post soon.   . . . The table of contents (therein) is on pp. 4-20.

I didn’t count, but the table has 143 rows.  Give or take the header and a few spares, this represents about 140 posts from 2012-2014.  In mid-2012, my understanding of certain financial concepts (like CAFRs) AND of the history of psychology as related to the development of the family courts, accelerated and deepened, helping connect the financial to the psychological to the business sectors — to taxes.  Browsing the titles might just be a good overview.

Images from this format — you will notice the same (date, filename, blog/username, page #) header on every page, and a footer (yellow-highlit) containing Notice to readers.  It’s self-explanatory.  Here are a few images (no active links in the images, only the pdf above…):

screen-shot-2017-01-11-at-6-36-36-pm

screen-shot-2017-01-11-at-6-38-07-pm<==IMAGES:  Page 1 – self-explanatory, below it, Page 2 Selected Posts with Abstracts (Endnotes), opposite that, Page 19 (from 2012 portion of the table), and last, screen-shot-2017-01-11-at-6-40-55-pman Endnote containing an added annotated image from “PION” (Pension & Investments On-Line) publication — from a 2009 chart (I’d cited in 2013) of the 50 largest foundations in the USA.  

[notes about image position refer to its laptop view; mobile or tablet views may re-arrange them.  They are labeled regardless of position.]


About THOSE 50 LARGEST FOUNDATIONS:

As of now, I’d already researched about every other one on the (2009) list, and posted on several. If you read this blog frequently, you’d recognize several names in the context of their operations to change public institutions.  These are privately controlled non-profit foundations controlling assets numbered in the billions of US$.  I had warned people about this in mid-2013 already.

And they are influencing social and justice policies, not to mention education and immigration also.

There are specialized magazines for such foundations, as “the good guys” or as investment platforms — but mainstream media (print, on-line, TV) otherwise just does not report** on the sector as a risk to legal representation of individuals in the United States of America, which it absolutely is.

Not to mention sponsoring organizations who often do not comply with state OR federal registration, filing, and incorporation laws here.

**I did — in part after I discovered some of the largest ones (Ford, Annie E. Casey, at points an Open Society foundation) pushing “responsible fatherhood” programs. And after I found one even partnering with the NYS Unified Court System to push certain types of programming favorable to a certain association I also blog on, consistently.

Many of these relate to diverting process outside the court room and into private (or, public/private) behavioral modification purposes, rather than emphasizing direct criminal prosecution/sentencing based on its racism.  Annie E. Casey, MacArthur working tag-team on this with particular focus on youth, and particularly youth in foster care or child welfare systems. Entire states are chosen to test solutions for the stated problems (Models for Change, JDAI, etc.)

So, my endnote on May 6, 2013 post “Private Equity Takes a New Tack” (also seen in the starred image, above left, from “List of Selected Posts with Endnotes”) referenced these entities.  That “tack” referred to buying of hard-asset infrastructure in, say, sub-Saharan Africa (a dam in Namibia, I think it was).

Whenever private entities control public resources, it’s going to affect any local population.

screen-shot-2017-01-11-at-6-41-44-pm

Endnote 12, continued from one on my Post “Private Equity Taking a New Tack” with “Largest Foundations” annotated image. From my 37-page TOC 2012-2014, reformatted.

Similar things are happening here, within America, but we somehow don’t seem to realize it, as having been coached not to think about who owns which real estate and assets, but “we’re all in this together” and in terms of social services.  What about the roads, public buildings, dams, levees, schools, universities (public ones I mean) as to their property (real estate); what about access to “the grid” whether it’s electric, and/or communications?  Who owns, and who charges access fees?

I just learned recently through noticing a certain visitor to the blog, about “CENIC.org” and the Internet2, i.e., that high-speed infrastructure as opposed to the communications network available to most individual taxpayers as individuals (that is, apart from their work or educational lives).  I realize the need for this when it comes to the military and national safety, but still — how many of us understand or even think casually about the entities involved and how this works and is financed? Well, see that website for more information.  It’s one of the best-designed websites I’ve seen in a long time, and deals with the statewide internet access for California.

This pdf=/= the CENIC website image, but an annotated RRF filing of the organization showing sources of gov’t revenue.  Check it out….

I still sometimes will be looking for more information on a specific grant, or grantee, or topic, and find my own posts come up in the search results.

4th Quarter 2016 Review, Part 2, of Who’s Pushing Things “First 5” (and K12) Public School “Transformation,” incl. Ounce of Prevention Fund (Sticky, publ. 12-13-2016)

Continued from (suggest read first): 4th Quarter 2016 Review Part 1, of Who’s Pushing Things “First 5” (and K12) Public School “Transformation” (Sticky, published 12-13-2016)

Link to THIS post, Part 2 (published same day).

First Five Years Fund also names an LLC which shows up on the Ounce of Prevention Fund (IL domicile) tax returns as a “related organization.”  Why wouldn’t the website FFYF.org, which is so interested in educating the public (and particularly its young children) be more forthcoming about the real ownership, international relationships of nonprofit to controlled entities, and the associated trademarks (held in the private sector) to be sponsored with public funding for private profit?

4th Quarter 2016 Review, Part 1, of Who’s Pushing Things “First 5” (and K12) Public School “Transformation” (Sticky, published 12-13-2016)

leave a comment »

Long post title with shortlink (short enough to “tweet”): 4th Quarter 2016 Review Part 1, of Who’s Pushing Things “First 5” (and K12) Public School “Transformation” (Sticky, published 12-13-2016)

Short link to Part 2 (similar title, “4th Quarter 2016 Review, Part 2, of Who’s Pushing Things “First 5” (and K12) Public School “Transformation,” incl. Ounce of Prevention Fund (Sticky, publ. 12-13-2016). Link will be provided again at the bottom of this post again, both published the same day.  The proportional split is about ⅓ Part 1, here, and ⅔ Part 2, there.  Because of the last-minute decision to split, some references here such as “in this post below” may actually refer to Part 2.

The decision to split was made after discovering important information about an organization called NACCRRA, whose former Executive Director is now positioned high up in the Head Start/Early Head Start and Child Development Fund position at HHS, which is explained on this post. Looking through that situation I was transfixed with the scope, centrality, and purpose demonstrated in the associated tax returns, and spent almost two days going through them, and posting/annotating several images to the blog.

About the Language and Length (Notes on Writing Style from TOC 2014 post) with Work Sample: The Calif Endowment (Publ. 10-13-2016, “Sticky”)

with one comment

Some Notes on Length and Writing Style,

and Work Sample (Preview/Postlude)

(Exploring one nonprofit & one of its backing foundations  with financial and filing details sheds light on the organizations’ mutual and relative sizes, revenue sources, and overall purposes, as a counterpoint and “backdrop” to organization’s public-profiles, i.e., their websites)  

Full Post Title & ShortLink:  About the Language and Length (Notes on Writing Style from TOC 2014 post) with Work Sample: The Calif Endowment (Publ. 10-13-2016, “Sticky”)

Including evidence from “The California Endowment” (“TCE”)’s Fiscal year 2004 Form 990PF return; it shows supplemental Statements detailing Direct Charitable Activities (expenses $16M),  and afterwards, showing dollar amounts in expenses, investments, liabilities, etc. as shown on the main IRS form.

The “charitable activities” performed that year were in part in conjunction with The California Healthcare Foundation to develop an Internet “app” to streamline people’s applications for as many social services and healthcare (welfare-type, public-funded) services as possible:

In conjunction with third-party vendor, The California Endowment supervised the development and implementation of the One-e-App technology solution. One-e-App is a Web-based system that is designed to screen and enroll all eligible individuals in California in multiple publicly funded health and social service programs, such as Medi- Cal and Healthy Families…

While paying that same year $11M in investment managers’ fees and holding a variety of investments as the “evidence” link above shows.  Here’s TCE more recently and right underneath it, “The California Healthcare Foundation (also more recent return):

ORGANIZATION NAME ST YR FORM PP TOTAL ASSETS EIN
California Endowment CA 2015 990PF 188 $3,768,442,347.00 95-4523232

Check out the close similarity in EIN#s — interesting, huh? 954523232 and 945423231

We are looking at $3.7 billion assets vs. $0.78 billion (or $780M) in total gross assets…

ORGANIZATION NAME ST YR FORM PP TOTAL ASSETS EIN
California HealthCare Foundation CA 2015 990O 237 $780,974,997.00 95-4523231

The California Healthcare Foundation (assets a mere “pipsqueak” by TCE standards) with its (2015) $781M of assets, spent also a lot on its 7 independent contractors, i.e., investment managers, including over $2.6M on “Makena Capital Management, LLC.”…

{1}Table of Contents 2016 (52 posts Jan. 23 – Dec. 13, 2016) with {2} Intro on First 5 Years Fund(ing), incl. but not limited to Tobacco Lawsuit Settlement Payouts + Warren Buffett’s “Ounce of Prevention Fund”(IL) and {3} Appendix of Tags from some Critical-to-Understand Posts

with one comment

Update:  It’s 2017 (!).   2017 Table of Contents Continues Themes from 2016 (Shortlink) will be published as soon as I add the three (so far) January posts to it.  Til then, the link remains active, but may re-direct to WordPress’s closest “best guess.” Also, I will pull the table of contents (only) for 2016 somehow into this post; am still considering how (possibly as an uploadable pdf with active links.)

For reference, this post’s revised post title and shortlink:  {1}Table of Contents 2016 (52 posts Jan. 23 – Dec. 13, 2016) with {2} Intro on First 5 Years Fund(ing), incl. but not limited to Tobacco Lawsuit Settlement Payouts + Warren Buffett’s “Ounce of Prevention Fund”(IL) and {3} Appendix of Tags from some Critical-to-Understand Posts .

A sticky post from April, 2014  shows earlier posts (2014 backwards to Sept. 2012) are within the “Sticky” ones.  Note, it doesn’t go all the way back to 2009, for which you must use the Archives.

“First 5”** Points Navigation/

Content of Table & Navigation of the Blog

(rev. Dec. 15, 2016 re: “First 5” material and state (1998 settlement)

and federal tobacco lawsuits as a factor in early childhood programming)

There are 52 posts so far in  for Year 2016

** About “First 5”  

I wanted to make 5 points about navigating this blog, which brought to mind again the phrase.  See that section below, labeled in the same big, red, font (**in post #52, below) for more fascinating and relevant information about a project springing up almost full-fledged before the public is informed, and involving more expansive uses of public funds on young children in the cradle-to-career (“womb to tomb”) planned economy, and planned-for-them lives.  In intent to make a light joke (but also point out the situation), I searched the above phrase, already knowing what this referred to in California, where I live.

Basically, money from federal tobacco lawsuit settlement/s were distributed to the statesthe question is where it went and how it’s been (is being) spent, and what public institutions that also has been influence, particularly when it comes to programs targeting kids.

In such matters, always pay attention to cash flow (Front Point A to Point B, or is it points B …. Z?  How exactly was this set up?) and the infrastructures sustained by the influx of billions of dollars.

Table of Contents

(June 29, 2014..back to Sept. 24, 2012

I started this blog in spring 2009. It is my continuous show-and-tell learning curve exposing, as the motto says, Family –and Conciliation — Court Operations, Practices, and History from the early 1990s and earlier.

Nothing was posted or added to this table of contents from June 29, 2014 (Broken Courts, Flawed Practices, Parade of Fools) throughout 2015.  On January 23, 2016 (2016 More Business As Usual in MN? (Criminalizing, Terrorizing, Jailing Mothers)) I resumed publishing posts.  My personal situation wasn’t particularly better at this time, it had just progressed, and I felt it urgent to continue this line of reporting, as I had not stopped investigating (or writing it up off-blog) meanwhile.

This BLOG has two separate Tables of Contents in two different posts, both near the very top of the blog: [Update: as of 1/8/2017, I’m starting one for the new year also…]

New Here? A Roadmap with some Chronology, Links, Issues (Sidebar-Plus) originally published Feb 24, 2014

with one comment

WIDGETS:  This 12,600-word post, first published 2/24/2014, contains essentially two or three of this blog’s sidebar text-boxes (“widgets”), each designed for total strangers, novices, and/or followers.  They are there to alert, expose new readers to key concepts and themes by immersing them into the narrative, and leaving footprints (links) for the curious and to keep reminding us of basic information which has been forgotten through advocacy-group neglect over (as of 2014) a period of 15-20 years minimum.

To understand this information is also to get a grasp on the essence of the relationship between “government” and the individual, and to call more individuals to wise up to how this works.

Get Real(itybloger)! — Call In, Read the Links on CAFRs, Review Regularly. (First posted Jan. 24, 2014)

with 3 comments

The “CAFR” topic is a governmental accounting and reporting practice which affects all people (and particularly in this situation, all US Citizens) because of its impact on the economy and our understanding of the size and scope of government operations. It is an over-arching and underlying issue, but it has been a hidden issue.

For example, as Carl Herman (Harvard Economics grad) put this in 2012, a very good question in my opinion.  Once certain evidence IS posted, it requires an review of reasoning built on “the big picture” (not including that evidence), and that “big picture” includes the hot topic of “DEFICIT.”

This is a “README” article! // Let’s Get Honest

CAFR summary: if $600B ‘fund’ can’t fund $27B pension, $16B budget deficit, why have it?(Posted on June 18, 2012 by Carl Herman in ‘Washington’s Blog”),

. . . Governor Brown is silent about the $600 billion in surplus cash and investments, claiming the $16 billion budget deficit can only be addressed by austerity – massive funding cuts to our essential infrastructure. A 2.8% divestment of the fund would cover the $16 billion deficit.

CDRC and Friends: Ever Wonder How All that MANDATORY Mediation, Alternate Dispute Resolution, etc. got passed? [May 15, 2013]

with one comment

Fall, 2014 update: This 12,000-word post is “sticky” (stuck to the top of the blog) because it illustrates how any special interest group already involving certain sectors of civil servants or other positions of influence (for example, at law schools) can lobby state legislatures and US Congress year after year through nonprofit associations. I have written an update and expect to publish it as a separate post, soon.In this post also see:

This gets “more than” interesting when I looked up the incorporator — just one person, Joel A. Shawn, Esq. of “Friedman, Shawn, Sloan & Ross.” (1981) filing.  Because the California OAG site doesn’t display previous to 2000 or so (and nothing previous to about 2004 is even showing on this nonprofit), I see no mention of Dr. [Joan B.] Kelly – although I’m sure the paperwork is on file.

the NORTHERN CALIFORNIA MEDIATION CENTER

(in San Rafael, just north of San Francisco) was registered as a corporation by ONE lawyer, Joel A. Shawn, of  FRIEDMAN, SLOAN, SHAWN & ROSS



[May 2013 post below:]

This is a combination of what I took OUT of “Flipping Cause and Effect: AFCC Rhetoric” (“Got custody killings?  Blame it on the bad language”) post — when the website I was reviewing brought up “Jay Folberg” as Dean of USF Law.

I [“Let’s Get Honest”] have been advising parents (in particular) to figure out WHO in the lobbying, rules-of-court-changing, profession-inventing, task-force-chairing State by State Supreme Court (or thereabouts) legal/judicial powerhouses — has AFCC affiliations, or at least has drunk that Kool-Aid.  As a handle, it’s definitely an indicator. Many symptoms accompany membership. When a certain panorama of symptoms shows up (this particular post shows most of them, like idiocy**) then the diagnosis “AFCC” is probably pretty accurate, whether or not it’s on the website already as a nametag…

** “Idiocy” referring to linguistic jumps in logic and labeling that really did lead a particular professional from Southern California to blame custody-killings on bad language.  For more information (and to identify an AFCC professional’s previous involvement in a case ending (?) with the massacre of 8 people in a Seal Beach, California Hair Salon), see “footnotes” to that “Flipping Cause and Effect” post.

The confusion is innate; it is intentional, and evidently it has a strategic purpose — where there is confusion, who gets to come in and settle the conflict?

Apparently AFCC exists and was originally organized, in part as a gas-lighting (“crazymaking”) organization = a deliberate lobbying outfit for forcing linguistic change away from the criminal codes into the behavioral health language la-la land; which purpose their site admits has been “on the books” as a corporate plan (mission/goal) since the 1970s.

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

(Originally published 2/5/2013) A key issue in the courts includes sexual assault and violence towards women and children. This has also been a key issue with psychoanalysis. 

Below the introduction, most of the post is about the Stunning Validation, but I keep it current and relevant –because it is! — to the subject matter of this blog.

While We’re There — the Northern California Mediation Center . . . and ITS corporate records, history, people, etc. (publ. 9/22/2012)

with 4 comments

[ca. 8,000 words.    Significant additions after publishing.NCMC   introduced as to corporate filings, some personnel. Post concludes  showing how “parental alienation” indoctrination happens,is self-perpetuating, and is hostile towards mothers, generally, and is definitely a marketable scheme [yes, scheme] as well. See “train-the-trainers” @ public cost mentality.In midstream, I’m taking (to another post) a basic explanation of what “Corporation” means, FYI]


We might as well talk about the Northern California Mediation Center alongside  The Judith Wallerstein Center for the Family in Transition, and right alongside respective corporate and nonprofit filings, fundings, tax returns affiliations and actions.{{The introduction is a little passionate, but it’s about a dozen paragraphs.  Scroll down if you want to skip them!  I added numbers to make it easier!}}

Another POV on “The Center for the Family in Transition” (and its funders) (Publ. 9/22/2012)

with 3 comments

Excerpt pulled to top of post in 2016.  This sticky post (below which are more current ones) originally published 9/22/2012.  It should be put in bold print, large letters and stuck on a refrigerator IF one is stuck in divorce drama at this time, as a reminder of the resonance of the rooms it will be taking place in!

The phrase “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 (“IPA”), essentially the inheritance of Sigmund Freud. 


This association, IPA, was formed shortly AFTER Sigmund Freud’s 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 fields 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,” a logical deduction is that those courts are also essentially — not “tangentially” —  crooked.

So, how can that “crooked” 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?

There has to be a way to check facts and assemble a workable theory that doesn’t entail slavery for most and freedom for some.  That alone is an ECONOMIC matter, a COMMERCE matter, and as such, has to be dealt with — what are these courts really for?  We can say “kids for cash” and “stop child-trafficking” til we are blue in the face, but sooner or later such things as the murder/suicide of Georgia Senator Nancy Schaeffer and her husband — which was most likely NOT anything close to a murder/suicide — have to be dealt with

BASSC (1987), CalSWEC(1990), PCWTA (1996), CFPIC(2003)…How Many Acronyms, and Foundations (Zellerbach Family, Ford, et al.) in this Global Child Welfare Village, and why did the California Components of the CalSWEC Public/Private Partnership draw its Core Curriculum Competency Model from a funky and not-quite-honestly-reporting (1979-formed) trio of Ohio nonprofits?

A preview, now titled:  “Preview Bordered Blue:  The Philadelphia Connection” (there is one…) was split off from this post, and when published, that link will lead to it. The “bordered blue” was just a way of distinguishing the preview from the post I’d already written, which is as you can see bordered in black.

It is self-explanatory, jammed with relevant information, and again, I hope it inspires people to start cracking the books, and if appropriate, “the whip” on the coordinated tax-exempt foundations of at least $1B assets or more, and figure out what their real and collective agenda is — just in case there might be some belated objections to it  or to the practices of simply dispersing so much influence on government over so many grantees.

(The $6.4B Assets John T. and Catherine D. MacArthur Foundation – aligned in basic purposes with Casey Family Programs ($2.2B) which comes up here — in year 2014 distributed $191 MILLION in grants which, however, was just a fraction of the foundation’s revenues (mostly from investments that year.  This was  a mixture of domestic and international, with a major infusion of grants to universities around the countries, and the world.  Check out their tax return for yourself!).

Are You Keeping Your Eyes on the Real Prizes behind Coordinated Global Philanthropy?

Can you even track public funding of public AND private universities, or the USA federal entities with which some of these larger foundations collaborates?

It’s well said, “Keep Your Eyes on the Prize.”  Let’s see who prizes WHAT by looking beyond the public relations (paid-for), promotions (paid-for) and enthusiastic agreement at the university and government levels (scroll through just ONE year of those grants, and see who’s being paid, nicely, to agree with this organization…

Especially for private (990PF-filing) tax-exempt foundations, who judging by their websites would rather we keep our eyes on their charitable motivations and disbursements, we would do well to keep our eyes on their assets (where invested and who paid to do it) which tell us, relative to the disbursements involved, where their real treasures lie — and where the “heart” of the organization actually is. ONE of their prizes is paying less tax on all that wealth.  Another — in this case — is clearly sponsoring international development and paying internationally-based investment advisors big bucks to, well, “diversify” offshores.

The View from the Organization’s Website

Look at image below (again, several “PageDowns” were necessary to get that far down, with large font and pictures hopefully? distracting all but the most determined from ever getting that far.)  Once down there — look at the tiny print beneath the details of providing a more just, verdant and peaceful world….with social media links above and below.

I dare anyone to locate where “Annual Reports” “Financials” or even “History” are (above image) with the naked eye — but could you not easily read “Chicago” (its hometown), Just, Verdant, and Peaceful on same sized image above this one? (I grabbed about the same amount of visible website from each).

MacArthur Foundation, home page, $11.6M in New Chicago Investments (again, this all means nothing as to relative size without a look at their financials, including their financials over time).

The investment advisors (while I’m there) like those in Casey Family Programs are quite well paid, there are a LOT of them (Casey listed 26 one year I viewed; MacArthur’s 2014 return listed 72) here, based in a number of different countries, including two in the UK and one in Mauritius, private equity company, with investments focused on India.  For a general idea, that’s Continent of Africa, 787 sq. miles, south of the Equator, population about 1.2M.  Or, check out this map (which also contains some shortlinks to other images and the related tax return):

The organization’s home page (again, the above quote is from Bloomberg.com profile, link shown on the annotated image below) for ChrysCapital.com shows 8 Directors — most chief connections are to the UK or Mauritius, one to France.  True, there are some directors with US college degrees (I saw Pepperdine-Loyola-Georgetown combo, and another, Harvard MBA, Stanford mechanical engineering (and on Stanford Bd of Trustees 1980-1985).  (George McCown — here’s link to private equity firm he co-founded, based in Foster City, CA with only 8 investors: McCown & De Leeuw):

Previously, he served as a senior tax executive at Ernst & Young, London. Dev has over 30 years of experience in international tax planning and business structuring. His area of specialization includes international banking and financial services including Islamic banking, offshore fund structuring and administration, intellectual and real property planning, franchising and retail operations. Dev is a Fellow of the Institute of Chartered Accountants in England and Wales and also a member of the Society of Trust and Estate Practitioners.

So, take a look at the image:

It’s important that Americans understand what this major and “ModelsForChange” foundation’s tax return reveals about where its true heart is (a.k.a., where its treasures are). Particularly seeing the highest-paid independent contractor ($1.2M) is domiciled in Mauritius (an island nation off S. Africa which only became independent from France in 1968, but which PRIVATE Equity firm is focused on India. Read all ChrysCapital’s Bd of Directors (there is one woman); their “Chartered Associate” focus is the UK, although you can see at least one Harvard and Stanford individual. What’s more, the only Investmt MANAGER (2014) based in the US (Boston), Babson Capital Mgmt, underwent a merger with 3 others announced 12/29/2016 and now is a new firm under the “Barings” brand which, while HQ’d in Charlotte NC (and London) still has a focus on Asia and Europe.

So, in bringing up “The Philadelphia Connection” on this post about the California/OHIO connection, well, nonprofits in both CA and OH were found running “Casey Family” and/or MacArthur Foundation programming (the purposes are similar).

Ohio as an entire STATE also figures in the (MacArthur promoted) “Models for Change” USA map of its “partners”…. It is a “Mental Health Action Network State” per this map w/ legend, along with Texas and others:

modelsforchangeorg-us-map-wlegend-core-partner-states-fed-collaborationsheavily-annotated-by-lgh-viewed-2017-01-04-at-4-02pm

Also, in Philadelphia, (see RED “CORE PARTNER STATE on USA map above) the well-known Juvenile Law Center at 1315 E. Broad St. 4th Floor (as I recall- easy enough to check) is the lead agency for Pennsylvania in re: the “Models for Change” purposes.

There were still more, different Philadelphia connections to those involved in what I’m blogging on this post, but I’ll leave it to that other “Preview Bordered Blue” post (forthcoming soon) to explain.

Either way, let’s pay better attention to which foundations are blowing the winds to which continents and along which currents of change of US-based public institutions.

A look through the MacArthur Foundation 990PF is a wakeup call, for sure.

I realize this all takes time.

But, well, so does working X hours for day and __% percent taken in taxes, and more (for some of us) wasted fighting family court feuds in venues with gender-stacked decks and infinite case-churning abilities and some federal incentives to keep unnecessary conflict going.

leave a comment »

I live in California, but if I lived in Ohio I would get on this situation ASAP.  I will say that a few more times during the post.  

Post Title & Shortlink”Consulting, Training and Program Development for Public Child Welfare and Child Protection Organizations to Promote Safety, Permanency and Well Being for Abused, Neglected, and Sexually Abused Children”(Or, “A Tale of 3 Ohio Nonprofits basically run by a Board of 1 man, 1 woman, + the Perpetual-Motion Grants Recycling Operation, 1980-2016”)

(That ‘s a =single, system-generated shortlink; short enough to “Tweet” or tell others, spanning a two-part title.  WordPress-generated shortlinks for use within this domain (obviously) ARE case-sensitive.  This one ends “-5fG”)


HAPPY NEW YEAR (almost, Pacific Standard Time).  I’m posting this as-is, and will amend or improve it as I can, when I can within the next few days.  Please use the page-down function liberally, and feedback is welcome through the comments field, as at all times. What I have to say on this topic will not fit on one post, and about four are currently in draft on this very important timely, and I believe, relevant to everyone, topic.


Note on publishing this post.  I don’t take it lightly to red-flag this situation, but it is based on my first readings of several related tax returns, and I know what I saw, and will show readers also, to the best of my ability in the timeframe, with enough points of reference for others to follow-up fact-check, or look at more of the evidence and see what it may have to say.

For one, no one in his or her right mind would take on major universities (at the School of Social Work level) and two of the larger (I DNK If largest, but both are in the billion-dollar-plus range) tax-exempt foundations, as participants, not to mention the State of Ohio Department of Job and Family Services for their dealing with said 3 Ohio Nonprofits so long without confronting their fiscal behavior without some basis for doing so.

This post goes with more than one other post, but the one I hope to publish soonest after this one, which I hope to do perhaps even within two hours (although there is a change of year inbetween — I’m doing this New Year’s Eve!): The title (and shortlink) here of “California Components” related post BASSC (1987), CalSWEC(1990), PCWTA (1996?), CFPIC(2003)…How Many Acronyms, and Foundations (Zellerbach, Ford (et. al))  in this Global Child Welfare Village, and why did the California Components of this Public/Private Partnership draw its Core Competency Model from a funky, and not-quite-honestly reporting (1979-formed) Ohio nonprofit? [link active and accurate only after I publish this draft.  Note: shortlinks generated by WordPress are case-sensitive]

After looking at the history of “CalSWEC,” and how closely aligned this is with a series of federal acts with associated funding streams, I am even more convinced that it’s time to publicize this to a more general audience, particularly those who might have an interest in this blog after having been personally devastated by court-related procedures breaking up their families WITHOUT any identified maternal abuse, criminal behavior, court order violations, but often after separating from abusers.

ConnectED + MPR Associates Inc. + Gary Hoachlander, WestEd, and the US Dept. of Ed, with help from James Irvine Foundation

with one comment

Preview of this post, ConnectED + MPR Associates Inc. + Gary Hoachlander, WestEd, and the US Dept. of Ed, with help from James Irvine Foundation,.  (It is currently 16,000 words long, and a bit complex! Then again, so are the networks I am discussing and exposing…)

This post was started 10/22/2016, but by Nov. 16, 2016 had not yet been published. Hopefully today’s that today or within a few days….While it began with the title on the posts, as the “tags” reflect, other topics came up in association.

A middle section here deals with other organizations, but the overall topic is the same:  Watch out for coordinated-purpose foundations with a unique obsession for re-developing the nation’s (and other nations’) public schools through pouring funds into them, funds which will be hard to track.

The Bridgespan Group (tax returns and quotes from them, as well as from its website below) in particular as a brainchild of Bain & Company [Funding Universe history page] (see also Bain Capital [Wikipedia] for the Mitt Romney Component and Boston Consulting Group [Funding Universe history page; BCG spun off as consultants from Boston Safe Deposit and Trust Co.] from which Bill Bain’s investment management/consulting model spun off] should put public perception  on “alert” as much as a new US President and who is the cabinet.  These activities have been under process for decades now, and all of them are going to impact the economy, the present and future workforce, and most at stake here — the degree of accountability for use of public resources when private groups are seeking to steer the ship.

Putting dates (1960s, 1970s, 1980s, 1990s, this century) to some of those key events, and names to the key personalities WILL be time well invested (even those three links above) understanding how they have operated in the for-profit sector, and are now operating also in the not-for-profit sector.  You will also pick up a general sense through continued readings on these topics, of who the public is dealing with when such organizations decided to focus coordinated efforts on the public school system as a whole.  For example, from Boston Consulting Group:

Do You Know Your EDC (EIN#04-2241718 in Massachusetts)? Or Why It Became a Greenbook Initiative ~Evaluation Partner~ Alongside ICF International and the NCSC? If Not, Pls. Look Now!

with one comment

Massachusetts Corporation/Business Entity Search (although EDC is a Delaware legal domicile entity with a MA address).  What’s a bit odd about the master page is that EDC is NOT labeled “nonprofit” although it seems to be one:

if needed, click here to read officer list full-sized.

Click on “All Filings” on the “master page” which comes up (after click on organization name) to view some older listings of officers showing their affiliations. For example, here’s for year 2010: I see listings from Brown (in Rhode Island, “Coalition of Essential Schools”), Columbia U. School of International and Public Affairs, Harvard JFK School of Government, Watertown (Mass).Public Schools, a person from Texas House of Representatives, Dept of Health (Boston), someone from PaineWebber (NJ), from NYNEX Corp in White Plains, NY, others without listed affiliations (incl. from Bethesda, MD) and in the only non-east-Coast director, Dean T. Jamison from UCLA.


Curious about that Brown University “Coalition of Essential Schools,” connection of an EDC board member,  I simply looked it up and immediately seea repeating pattern among progressive (specifically) school reform advocates preaching democracy, egality, etc.  – and how this translates into how, and from where (Harvard, Yale, Brown for starters in this case) they like to do business.  The website is ‘EssentialSchools.org” and there is a Wiki.


I removed these about 4,000 words (before any expansion) from the “Who Produced the Greenbook Initiative” post which itself started as front matter from my original (2014-backwards) Table of Contents Post. [Full Title:  Who Produced The Greenbook Initiative? And, About NGA, NCJFCJ, AFCC, Council on State Govts (Trade Associations You Should Know).  (Moved from “My Posts-Just the List” on 10-5-2016, Expanded by 2/3rds and Posted 11/8/2016) ]


As I am not doing the conference circuit, cannot do this AND Facebook, Twitter, seek on-line MSM journalist spots, my main vehicle for communicating these understandings, unless you happen to encounter me in a public place and get to talking, is really this blog. When not doing this blog, these days, I am considering how to deal with the current life situations which have a number of pending litigation situations, or one that ought to become litigation, the purpose this time to alleviate my current situation of being extorted, long-term, with housing at risk.


You’d be surprised how little it can take to wreck others’ lives once children are taken hostage, and when the only venue to correct this is the current family court system as pumped up on marriage and fatherhood promotions and untraceable funding flowing through the system AND the administrative bureaucracy backing up its practices, like some athletes have been found to be on steroids.


I am writing this just days before a US Presidential election in which charges about the Clinton Foundation or the Trump Foundations come up occasionally, while almost no one is talking about the significance of the tax-exempt foundation as a sector influencing just how “great” America is, or is not, presently.

Certainly I have not found any coherent discussions on any MSM news broadcasts on things Hillary v. Donald (with Bill and Melania <==Wiki** in the background as spouses) on the internationalist influence by way of accumulated wealth in the tax-exempt sector over decades, and generations, and now with the addition of internet technology, and social media, and the funds to buy not just air time, but entire news outlets or news platforms, not to mention to “buy” the attention of researchers at university level, who respond appreciatively to their funders by multiplying evaluations of the chosen projects… I am not holding my breath as to HOW such a discussion might take place.


Note: post-election (on 12/14/2016), marked by this color background, I added 3 articles re: the spouses of Presidential contenders ; they are by no means the main focus of the blog.  Although they do make the point of a certain hypocrisy of both political parties having continued preaching marriage and fatherhood as a way out of poverty to the poor and middle classes of the nation (and through social service delivery systems) while demonstrating by their actions that the wealthy (regardless of how they got that way) must not be held to such standards, or reasoning.  That discrepancy also should also tell us that there just might be something up with the whole concept apart from the sales-promo and propaganda currently driving its public face, to this day.


Melania Trump (born Melanija Knavs;[2][a] April 26, 1970; anglicized to Melania Knauss[3]) is a Slovene-born American former model who is married to American businessman and President-elect of the United States, Donald Trump.

Born in Slovenia, she became a permanent resident of the United States in 2001 and a citizen in 2006. She is to assume the role of First Lady of the United States on January 20, 2017. She will be the second foreign-born First Lady of the United States, following Louisa Adams in 1825, and the only First Lady to date not to have been born a citizen of the United States or in what would later become the United States. [see Wiki link is above for any internal links]… She speaks six languages: Serbo-Croatian, English, French, Italian, German, and her native Slovene.[21]

and the five children from three different marriages, quite a different role model than the current President of the USA (wiki on Trump’s family has the image):

Trumps Family Tree image

Trump has five children from three different marriages: Don Jr., Ivanka, and Eric Trump with Ivana Trump, Tiffany Trump with Marla Maples, and Barron Trump with First Lady-designate Melania Trump.


Oct. 31, 2016 “If Clinton Wins, Please Retire Husband” by Ruth Marcus, the Indy Star (as in Indianapolis; part of USA Today Network), talks about financial and sexual exploits, and some about the foundation, but the lights don’t seem to be on that foundations by character, and by sheer number of them (including some extremely wealthy ones) facilitate such behavior.  I am more likely to think about Bill in terms of his handling of demands of conservatives and progressives alike in 1996 “Welfare Reform,” and the re-election’s bad-timing with the Lewinsky affair.  However, here’s that quote (had to complete short survey to read).

…That does not mean Bill Clinton’s conduct is irrelevant. There is no condoning a record that reflects not just serial adultery, but abuse of power. Clinton was a successful president who deserved the two terms for which he was elected, but his misbehavior would disqualify him from a third term even if the Constitution allowed it.

Having him back in the White House if his wife is elected president creates an uncomfortable situation. It shouldn’t stop her from getting the job, but it can fairly shape what we want and expect of him as First Spouse. It is intellectually dishonest to be appalled by Trump’s behavior toward women and to airbrush Bill Clinton’s.

To put it bluntly, anyone else with Bill Clinton’s background wouldn’t be hired to work in Hillary Clinton’s White House.

And about that money: The Clinton Foundation did good works, but the Clintons’ unseemly money chase is repulsive, and it has become clear that they cannot be trusted to appropriately navigate ethical boundaries between their private interests and public responsibilities.

Recent WikiLeaked documents make manifest what has been apparent to anyone familiar with the compulsive money-vacuuming, comfortable nest-feathering, mutual back-scratching operation that is “Bill Clinton Inc.,” as longtime Bill Clinton aide Douglas Band described it.

There is incessant, troubling, blurring of lines

The Sun.UK on November 4 had some more commentary (in an article questioning what would be the formal title of the First Husband if Hillary Clinton won), among its questions:

So will Bill move back to his old bedroom at the White house?

Bed-hopping Bill Clinton has said he was looking forward to moving back to the White House if Hillary wins the presidency in 2016 – but only if his wife decides to ask him.

The former Commander-in-Chief joked he would still need an invite before relocating to 1600 Pennsylvania Avenue if Hillary’s campaign is successful.

Talking to David Letterman he said he would move back to the White House in the event of his wife winning the presidency – so long as she asks him

 “If she wins the election, the chances are 100 per cent I’ll move back … if I’m asked.”
Obviously a return to the White House will also be a return to the place where he infamously had a fling with intern Monica Lewinsky.

Moving on…
