From MG: Parental Alienation Protest–Tomorrow, April 25, 2017 Chicago Daley Center 10 am to 4 pm

Here are the details:

 

Thompson Center plaza

100 W. Randolph, Chicago, IL

10:30AM – 4:00PM

 

See you there.

 

Mick

 

Michael D. Gerhardt (Cell: 312-593-5100)

I think this would be a great day for all the courtroom corruption victims to gather together with protest signs and make their voice known.

There’s always media coverage at the Thompson Center for a large rally, and I know that Mick Gearhart is always a great activist working for fairness and accountability in our nation’s courtroom.

Thanks Mick, for putting this together.

Co parenting 50-50 is always best unless one parent is proved unfit by clear and convincing evidence.

Far too often today the parent with the most money, the parent who sleeps with the judges or attorneys, ends up the winner takes all in custody battles.

This has got to end.

Same in probate.  Certain connected attorneys are allowed to take huge chunks of money per year out of guardianship estates with impunity.  That system has to end and we need to go to a volunteer elder assistant program where Elder Assistants just help the elderly pay bills and make choices.  No more “target, guardianize, isolate, medicate, drain the estate, when the money is gone, narcotize to death.”

In the case of 99 year old Alice Gore, they pulled 29 gold teeth and put a diaper at one end and a feeding tube laced with drugs at the other (btw, Alice could eat just fine, tyvm).  In the case of Mary G Sykes, $1 million in valuable coins disappeared, a safe deposit box was drilled out without a court order, all discovery was quashed in the case, her home was likely sold for pennies on the dollar (no accounting was ever filed and the court and the ARDC for sure quashed all discovery on that)–no one, it appears is allowed to know where all the money and assets in an estate go–that is decided by the judges and attorneys up front behind closed doors, just as the Drabiks in the disappearance of $9 million from the Lydia Tyler estate–and her body is STILL missing.

Poor Jay Brouckmeersch was 94 when she was transferred to the Northwestern Memorial Hospital where she was given an overdose of heparin, a dangerous blood thinner for over one month.  The Daughter tried over and over again to have her mother taken to the ER because she was severely dehydrated and bleeding, but Warren Barr nursing home staff refused to do so. (This is a common occurrence in some nursing homes–the staff just doesn’t care about life threatening conditions).  When Daughter finally prevalied, Mother desperately needed blood transfusions and IV fluids. She was patched up and transferred back to the nursing home where this happened again in just a few days.  WB still didn’t want to send her to the ER and a court battle ensured where Judge Quinn repeatedly ignored the fact that Mother was dazed, confused, and in need of immediate medical attention.  Finally, she was transferred to NMH ER where the Office of State Guardian outrageous told the ER doctor “not to treat” which is  patient dumping under EMALTA and in 2 days, Mother died.  All Mother needed was more IV fluids and a blood transfusion due to the heparin overdose.  No one cared, not the OSG, Judge Quinn or the OPG==all were involved in the murder of an elder.

Please join the Coparenting support rally today, and if you are a court corruption victim, come by and tell you story about how there is in fact a crisis of injustice at the Daley Center, we DO need special investigators both in Probate and in the Family Law Division.

Having a child erased from your life without a finding of being “unfit” is a tragedy. Parents commit suicide over this and are permanently psychologically harmed.  Plus, it’s child abuse, plain and simple.

The policy of “target, guardianize, isolate, medicate, drain the estate and narcotize to death” also has to end.

We need Justice, Truth and Accountability at the Daley Center.

All court rooms should have cameras and audio/video recording at all times.

Judges should only seal cases in accordance with the guidelines that the 7th Circuit have deemed constitutional (notice, a hearing, a law or ordinance, discovery, findings of fact and conclusion of law regarding why sealing the court room is unconstitutional.

Please join with us in seeking Justice for Everyone!

From Eliot Bernstein; Update on Marvin Siegel/Lisa Belanger case

http://www.bostonbroadside.com/showcase/isolate-medicate-liquidate-how-to-fleece-a-senior/

It started out simply: a retired Boxford lawyer, Marvin Siegel, got along in years, and as he approached his 83rd year amongst his fellow men, he began to slip a bit, needing some help around the house. His family pitched in, and at one point, a service that provided checkups on the elderly would visit with Mr. Siegel and see to his needs.

As time went on, his needs increased and a family member related that it made sense for his youngest daughter, a lawyer like her dad, to move into the family home with her father. (The eldest daughter lives thousands of miles away, and the middle daughter has some “issues” according to her younger sibling.)

Things appeared fine at first, having one daughter, her husband and two of his grandchildren fill the voids in his previously silent home. Dinners together, helping out with laundry care, just watching TV together and bringing joy to Mr. Siegel…Then one day, the grandkids returned home with their mom, and found their grandfather being taken away in an ambulance.

According to statements from the daughter and court documents (and we’re in the process of obtaining more documents, and scrutinizing hundreds of pages of filings and transcripts and listening to the court recordings), the visiting helper felt that Mr. Siegel was in an ill condition, tired and apparently forgetful. She called for an ambulance and he was transported to Beverly Hospital. From there, he was transported to another facility for evaluation, and that’s where the drugging began.

According to his youngest daughter, Mr. Siegel is medicated against his wishes, isolated from her, has had his cell phone taken away from him by his court-appointed guardian, and has 24/7 “guards” (medical providers) with him at his home in Boxford. She notes that within months of the ambulance ride, and the subsequent involvement of court-appointed personnel, she and her family were kicked out of her dad’s home, and she’s been prohibited from visiting with or having any communication with him.

That was five years ago.

Oh, and his bank accounts have dwindled over the past five years, with his net worth apparently oozed away, going from approximately $9 million to less than $4 million, and shrinking.

 

Ah, the money. Follow the money.

And where has that money gone?

As an example, various court documents reveal that one local lawyer, Marsha Kazarosian of Haverhill, billed the retired lawyer’s holdings in excess of $200,000 in just one 12-month period. Apparently, other lawyers and groups associated with the Mr. Siegel similarly drew sums of money from the multi-millionaire, against his expressed wishes.

 Kazarosian billed more than $200K in one 12-month period

Ironically, one of the daughters had initially hired Atty. Kazarosian to help ensure her father’s original estate planning would remain intact. The daughter relates and presented to court an argument that despite a filing by Atty. Kazarosian detailing under oath that the multi-millionaire was fully competent of handling his own personal affairs, something changed. Within a short period of time, Atty. Kazarosian switched teams, signed on to work for a court-appointed guardian for Mr. Siegel, and began working against Mr. Siegel’s daughters.

But wait, it gets better.

Mr. Siegel attempted to fire Kazarosian for going against his wishes, but she refused to be fired. Instead, she took his signed, hand-written dismissal letter and consulted with the court-assigned guardian, Attorney Brian Cuffe. Together, the two – in spite of the letter – agreed that he would keep her on the dole, his team, protecting Mr. Siegel’s estate from his daughters and grandchildren.

 Cuffe

 

Yes, you read that right. To date, two of the three daughters have been accused by the various court-appointed parties and those who have drained money from their father’s estate of taking advantage of their father, specifically blaming the daughters for the loss of funds. What? Why? Because, if the daughters would simply shut up and go along and get along, and not object to the guardian’s and the lawyer’s handling of their father’s funds, then no one would have to go to court to fight the daughters. That way the lawyers would not have to bill such large sums, draining his accounts so quickly. What?

At one point, one of the daughters submitted that she was offered a $100K settlement if she would just simply walk away from her father and his millions. She termed it a bribe, and refused.

Out-gunned, Out-maneuvered

Two of the daughters filed multiple “complaints for emergency and preliminary injunctive relief” against various parties whom they have accused of having a part in the taking of funds from their father. The accused parties have included, but are not limited to the following:

But the family notes that they are out-gunned, out-financed, and at every turn out-maneuvered. The lawyers they have gone up against, and the corporations, and those (Cuffe and others) who can use their own money as well as their multi-millionaire’s father’s money against them have had a clear advantage. And the courts have not been kind to the daughters.

Indeed, in one rebuke, the daughters were apparently slammed by the courts for excessive filings. “We’ve been hit with judgments because we’re fighting these people and have submitted too much paperwork, can you imagine?” daughter Lisa Siegel Belanger related. “I submit the documentation because I don’t want this to be about our opinion, or who is credible or not credible. I submitted the documents so that anyone who cares can read them and rule on the facts. The facts are there. The documents show what they have done, how they are drugging, isolating, and draining my father’s funds.”

To summarize the case, which has been in and out of probate court, and pending now in new filings, the family wrote the following:

“With well-established circumstances, Attorney Siegel memorialized his own unequivocal intentions and desires in a panoply of executed estate planning, he explicitly designated his youngest daughter, Attorney Lisa Siegel Belanger, as his attorney-in-fact and his eldest daughter, Devora Kaiser, as successor attorney-in-fact. The two outmost important things Attorney Siegel cared about was: 1) his reputation and dignity and 2) his three (3) daughters.

Through a convoluted vortex of circumstances, on August 4, 2011, multi-millionaire Attorney Siegel was thrusted under a court appointed guardianship and conservatorship, unlawfully ending up with judicially deemed ward of the Commonwealth on August 17, 2011.”

With their father’s wishes being ignored, and getting no relief from probate court, the daughters had attempted an appeal to federal court. One portion of the transcript notes a daughter stating: “This initially starts off before that where my father, Attorney Siegel, had his established durable power of attorney and array of estate planning instruments for a long and continuous [time]…we’re here because of the fraudulent ouster and dismantling of that durable power of attorney.”

In English, that means that the daughter is accusing and presenting evidence that those in power – from the doctors to the hospitals to the lawyers entrusted with handling her father’s estate, dismantled years of estate planning instruments, stripped away all powers from the multi-millionaire, began a process of administering various drugs, have aided in isolating him from his family, and have been a party to draining his estate.

On page 31 of 97 of just one filing, the family states that a lawyer, cognizant that Mr. Siegel was being “involuntarily drugged with antipsychotics,” did “surreptitiously, through fraud and deception…” secure a signature from Mr. Siegel which set off a chain reaction, undoing years of his estate planning, while Mr. Siegel was in a psychiatric facility for two days of evaluation. The results of the evaluation showed no psychiatric issues and Mr. Siegel was subsequently released to his home.

Fundraiser today for Justice 4 Every1 for rent 5330 W Devon Ave, 2nd floor, Chicago

Now that the move is over, we must continue to do fundraisers. We do not receive corporate money of any kind, nor do we receive any government grants.

During the last month, however, the Office of State Guardian narcotized poor Jay Brouckmeersh, age 92 to death using the ER docs at Northwestern Memorial Hospital, so we are all aware that the need to bring justice back to guardianship court is dire and acute.

Please join us today from 2 to 4 pm, as we continue our fight for Justice and Accountability in the Cook County, Illinois Probate Court System.

We will be having (courtesy of a donor) smoked salmon and fresh buffalo mozzarella cheese and wine and cheese.  Please bring a dish or whatever you would like to share.

We accept donations by:  text, fax or email. Simply take a picture of your check and text it to 773 255 7608, fax it to our new efax number at 888 350 0192 or email it to joanne@justice4every1.com or pay by Paypal to same address or Chase Quick Pay (you do not have to be a Chase customer to do this, all you need is a bank account and an email or text message capabilities).

All donations are much appreciated.  We very well know how probate courts strip the elders of all their money, as well as friends and families in false court proceedings.

But we all have to band together to fight for Truth and Justice. Democracy is not a spectator sport.

Our new rent is $700 per month, so we have a bit of fundraising to do.

From NASGA–hidden cameras show elderly woman being abused by aides in nursing home

https://nasga-stopguardianabuse.blogspot.com/2017/03/hidden-camera-captures-nursing-aides.html

SHARON, Mass. – A hidden camera captured a 93-year-old great-grandmother being tossed around and her hair pulled in a Sharon nursing home and rehab last week.

The video, set up by her family in her room at Wingate at Sharon, shows two women toss the elderly resident into her wheelchair. The resident, whose family, has identified her only as Dorothy, then struggles to maintain her balance.

“Get the hell away from me,” Dorothy says. “You think you’re pretty smart,” as one aide shows Dorothy her fist. Seconds later, the other aide grabs her hair from behind and yanks her head around.

The video from March 5 begins with Dorothy, who has dementia, swearing at and exchanging swipes with the pair. She threatens to break one certified nursing assistant (CNA)’s nose and says she will call police. Her granddaughter Kristen says Dorothy was defending herself.

“She can’t really hurt you. She’s 98 pounds. They were picking her up and whipping her around,” Kristen said. “It’s awful. We haven’t even slept nights with the images in our head of what was taken place, and we weren’t there to help her.”

Sharon police investigating the case filed a court summons for Domingas Teixeira, 61, and Leonide Jean Paul Bien-Aime, 49, both of Brockton, on charges of assault and battery on a person over 60.

Teixeira denied physically assaulting Dorothy but declined to comment further without an attorney.

FOX25 tried to reach Bien-Aime at home but could not make contact with her.

Wingate confirmed to FOX25 both aides had been fired. The company sent the following statement to FOX25.

“Upon hearing this deeply upsetting news, we moved swiftly to terminate the two employees involved, conduct a full investigation and work with the authorities.  We have brought in a counselor to support the resident and family and are re-educating all of our staff on appropriate and compassionate patient care. We are confident that this is an isolated incident, because we know our dedicated staff members who work hard every day to ensure the safety and dignity of the residents for whom they care. Nonetheless, it is heartbreaking.”

A spokesperson for Wingate also provided a letter that was sent to residents’ families, informing them of the incident, promising it was isolated and pledging, “nothing is more important to us than the safety and dignity of our residents.”

Dorothy, sick with pneumonia and a urinary tract infection, has been transferred to Massachusetts General Hospital. There, Kristen said, she is happier. She will never return to Wingate, the family said.

“I’m disgusted. I’m sickened by it. She’s defenseless,” Kristen said. “We trusted this place to take care  of her, and this is what was taking place in their facility.”

In an effort to protect her own grandparent and others, Kristen has been sending letters to lawmakers urging them to reconsider an electronic monitoring bill that was never passed but was proposed more than 15 years ago to allow residents of nursing homes to keep a camera rolling in their room.

If you suspect elder abuse, report it to the Elder Abuse Hotline: 800.922.2275 (Voice/TTY) in Massachusetts or (603) 271-7014 in New Hampshire.

New Recommended Book–Michigan Monsters–the story of murder of an elderly father

Best of all, if you have Amazon unlimited, it’s free.  If not, it’s a bargain at $2.99.

The book does an excellent job of detailing the harrowing end of days of one elderly man, age 72, who was in good mental health, and good physical condition.

Once drugs are dispensed, it’s an easy step to have the person declared incompetent, put in a locked down nursing home where more drugs are dispenses–and every knows (or should know), if you were mentally competent prior to taking these drugs, they will ruin your mind and body.

Psychotropic drugs are not FDA approved for those over 60 or under 20, but they are dispensed all the time to the elderly.  Up to 80% of nursing home residents are dispensed psychotropic drugs, whether they want them or need them or not.  The FDA has declared this is a dangerous practice–so dangerous that in fact, a doctor’s (or nurse’s) license should be revoked if they engage in such behavior.

Nonetheless, this book is an excellent and quick read and I hope everyone takes the time and trouble to read the truth about guardians and guardianship courts and how this one easily worked with a murderer to commit murder.

My review, just posted:

5.0 out of 5 stars A true and accurate tale of murder in guardianship — a good example, April 20, 2017
This review is from: MICHIGAN MONSTERS: The True Story of how Karen Chism and Kristie Compton Murdered my Dad (Kindle Edition)
Excellent story of what really happens in guardianship court where an elder can easily be guardianized in just minutes even though they are perfectly competent and in good health and condition. Once someone drugs you with psychotropic drugs and takes away your hearing aides and glasses, many court appointed shrinks, for the right amount of money will declare you incompetent, in need of 24/7 care, in need of being drugged and in an institution, and then a system of felonies takes right over. You will be drugged, you will even be restrained physically while your estate is being drained by nefarious actors such as Guardians ad Litem, attorneys, (anti) social workers and a whole host of licensed criminals. At the right time, food and water will be withheld and drugs administered so that death (murder) easily comes in just 2 to 3 days.
This is an excellent short story of the corruption of our nation’s court system,and in particular, the guardianship system where so very many people steal money from an elder with money, it closely resembles the worst Dickensonian scenes ever.
See the following blogs: marygsykes, justice4every1 and the NASGA and ProbateSharks blogs for more information on this growing problem in the US and how you can help stop heart wrenching stories like these from taking place. Excellent job. Accurate job.

From FB: Medical Kidnap–If you don’t think there is something seriously wrong with our justice system, take a look at these horrors

http://healthimpactnews.com/2014/a-history-of-medical-kidnapping-at-phoenix-childrens-hospital/

 

Health Impact News

Earlier this month (October 2014) we reported the sad story of the Diegel family, who had their two daughters seized by Phoenix Children’s Hospital for disagreeing with the doctors over their treatment. We have previously reported many similar stories of hospitals using Child Protection Services (CPS) to remove children from loving parents simply for disagreeing with doctors, such as Justina Pelletier at Boston Children’s Hosptial, and Isaiah Rider at Lurie Children’s Hospital in Chicago.

Behind each of these stories is a link to experimental drug trials for the same medical conditions these children were suffering. This prompted a group of lawmakers on Capital Hill to introduce new legislation to stop this kind of medical experimentation on children who are seized from parents and made wards of the state (see: “Justina’s Law” Seeks to End Experimental Medical Research on Children Seized by Child Protection Services).

History of Phoenix Problems in Medical Kidnapping

Since publishing the Diegel family story, Health Impact News has been approached by many families with similar experiences with CPS in Phoenix, and with Phoenix Children’s Hospital. What we have learned in our investigation is truly troubling, and needs to be exposed by the media.

Like Melissa Diegel, who was threatened by family court with a gag order and ordered to take down her Facebook Page and other content documenting her family’s experience, these parents are terrified of coming forward and telling their story. Therefore, many of our sources for this story wish to remain anonymous. Some of them hold important positions within the community in the Phoenix area, but fear retaliation.

What we have learned is that while the problem of medical kidnapping is systemic and present in all 50 states, linked to federal funding for CPS and the foster care business, apparently it is “by far” worse in Arizona than any other state. One source said:

We have upwards of 15,000 kids in and out of home placement. It is a billion dollar business and more when the judges, lawyers, guardian ad litems, experts, cps case managers, cps administration, hospitals, physicians, foster parents, and court appointed attorneys are included. It is not uncommon for a hospital to bill AHCCCS (Medicaid) a million dollars a year on one child.

First, there are a many stories of medical kidnapping in Phoenix that are publicly available. We will highlight a few of the many.

Escape to Mexico to Avoid Medical Kidnapping

emily-Bracamontes

In a 2012 story that was covered in the national mainstream media, Norma and Luis Bracamontes’ 11-year daughter, who had been diagnosed with leukemia, was being treated at Phoenix Children’s Hospital (PCH). But while she was in the hospital, she developed a serious infection in her arm that caused her arm to be amputated. The parents became very concerned about the kind of treatment she was receiving, especially when doctors inserted a catheter into her heart.

However, PCH would not allow the parents to take their daughter to another hospital. So in an action that was captured on the hospital’s security camera and broadcast to the whole country via the mainstream media, Norma took her daughter into a bathroom, removed her IV, and walked out of the hospital with her daughter. You can watch the original report on NBCLatino here.

Phoenix police searched for the girl and her mother, stating that the girl’s life was in extreme danger, and that she would die if she was not returned to the hospital.

However, the parents stated just the opposite. They stated the hospital was already responsible for her losing her arm, and they were concerned their daughter’s life was in extreme danger if they continued to allow PCH to hold their daughter. So they escaped to Mexico.

Once safe in Mexico, the mother and daughter appeared to the media to prove that the daughter was safe, and that she was getting better in the care of her Mexican doctors. You can watch the interview on the Today Show here. They were also interviewed by the local media on KSWT News 13 here, where the mother explains that PCH would not release the daughter unless she applied for health insurance.

The parents action, while quite possibly saving the child’s life, resulted in them becoming criminals and fugitives in Phoenix, as local police there say they face arrest for “child endangerment and abuse.”

Using Psychological Diagnosis of Parent to Seize Children

Rachel-Sparks

In a report covered by 3TV in Phoenix in 2012, Rachel Sparks had her son snatched right from her arms from CPS due to a psychological diagnosis and drugs her doctor had prescribed to her. Her doctor made a mistake in prescribing a dose too high, which landed her in the hospital. She was alleged to be unfit to care for her autistic son, so they took him away from her. Her son became suicidal in foster care, missing his mother so much.

There was no evidence of Rachel abusing or not being able to care for her children. So when months turned into years, 3TV in Phoenix got involved. They uncovered internal documents with the CPS showing that a team of specialists wrote: “There are no risk factors at this time as client has met her goals above and beyond showing strength and stability in safe parenting.” Yet, he was not returned until a year and half later, after an attorney picked up the case pro bono and obtained a court order to have him returned.

For Sparks, it has been a long and painful journey.

“It’s scary – I’m still scared,” she said. “Not that I’ve done anything wrong but that this can happen to regular people.”

Still Sparks says she’s a survivor — and so are her kids.

“My kids are my life,” she tells us. “They are the reason I am living.”

The Arizona 5 – Heal Your Kids Naturally and You Lose Them

Arizona-5

To understand some of the rationale behind the medical industry and the development of new drugs, one must understand that modern medicine is dependent to a large extent on the field of genetics. This is the “new frontier” in drugs. Therefore, to present the cure or remedy to a disease based on environmental causes, such as toxins in our environment, is a threat to this theory. It suggests there are natural, not patent-able, non-pharmaceutical solutions outside of the drug industry. (See: Genetics Research Fraud: Your Genes do NOT Determine Your Health.)

When the source of the toxins causing sickness is a pharmaceutical product to begin with, like a vaccine, then there is a double threat to the powerful pharmaceutical industry.

There is probably no field of modern medicine so contentious and so full of fraud as the field of vaccines and autism. (See: Vaccine Scandals and Criminal Cases Increase in 2014.)

In 2010 when a family of five children who were all diagnosed with autism began to see improvement in their children using natural remedies and diet, they had their children taken away from them by CPS at the order of doctors at PCH.

Dr. Andrew Wakefied became aware of the family while giving a lecture in Phoenix in 2010, and became so interested in their case that he wrote a book about them: Waging War on the Autistic Child: The Arizona 5 and the Legacy of Baron von Munchausen (Skyhorse Publishing). Here is an excerpt from the introduction to the book:

As the number of children diagnosed with autism spectrum disorders grows each year, new discoveries and controversies arise. Andrew Wakefield explores many of these in his thorough investigation of the recent trial case of the “Arizona 5,” which destroyed an Arizona family. Two parents, with five children on the spectrum, were accused of Münchausen syndrome by proxy—a rare form of child abuse—and were ganged up on by physicians, child protective services, and the courts, who alleged that the parents fabricated medical symptoms in all five children. However, Wakefield now presents ample evidence that was disregarded and which would have proven the parents’ innocence.

Families affected by autism suffer great hardship and prejudice, particularly as they navigate the uncertain waters of diagnosis, treatment, and education. The shocking story of the Arizona 5 family delves into the tremendous challenges some parents have to face, especially if their views on how to treat the syndrome don’t align with the medical world’s standards. Wakefield also includes numerous studies and research trials that support the controversial yet significant roles that vaccines and diet play in autism, factors many medical professionals wrongfully dismiss.

To watch an interview with Dr. Wakefield and family members, go here.

Using the Field of Psychology to Kidnap Children at PCH

In almost every single case of medical kidnapping we have covered here at Health Impact News, a psychologist or psychiatrist is used to justify removing the children from the parents. And this seems to be especially true with PCH as well.

One person from Arizona told us that PCH uses an out-of-state psychologist that is not licensed in Arizona to come in and review cases where children are removed from parents. This is what they told us about the procedure PCH uses to medically kidnap children:

In Arizona when a physician or hospital commits a medical mistake there is a well planned procedural process that takes place immediately.

The child is immediately moved to a special room within the hospital. The special room is wired for audio and video with the capacity to pick up sounds and visuals from every angle except the bathroom. The child is recorded 24/7 or until they develop enough circumstantial evidence to make accusations that the mother has done something to or with the child.

Then the physicians have the hospital social worker call CPS and state, “it is not in the child’s best interest to return home with the mother as it will impede the child’s recovery”. 

CPS then comes to the hospital and takes control of the child and the parent is forbidden from seeing the child.

Then Dr. Kathryn Coffman who works for the hospital and the doctors that called in to CPS and Brenda Bursch PhD., who subcontracts with the state of Arizona, begin an extensive review of the medical records, “but” not all of the medical records. “Only” medical records that draw a picture that mother possibly did something to the child. This is not evidence but only pure conjecture. The court never is told the true condition of the child. That is hidden and exculpatory evidence is hidden as well.

It is my understanding that Brenda Bursch PhD. is on at least 12 cases like this in Arizona. She is an out-of-state psychologist that is not licensed in Arizona but is allowed to practice here for 20 days each year.

It is unethical for a psychologist to wear more than one hat on a case. Not so in Arizona! I attempted to file complaints with the California Psychology Board. They sort of snickered and said that she is not doing anything wrong in California so it is none of their concern.

I and multiple other parents and citizens filed complaints with the Arizona Psychology Board. The Arizona Attorney General’s Office blocked those complaints saying that she is not licensed in Arizona so they have no jurisdiction. There were at least five complaints that I know of and all were blocked. I am attaching a “white paper” I did to demonstrate the number of hats out-of-state psychologists wear here in Arizona on these cases. The state picks them up at the airport and transports them to their hotel and to and from court proceedings at no charge. (Possibly a gift of state funds and possibly tampering with a witness to draw sympathy or share information.)

Here is a list of inappropriate ways the Arizona Department of Economic Security, Child Protective Services branch, contracts and uses “out-of-state” psychologists:

  • These “out-of-state” psychologists are not licensed in Arizona.
  • These “out-of-state” psychologists are not accountable in the state of Arizona to the Arizona Psychology Board.
  • These “out-of-state” psychologists are not accountable in the state they are licensed in because their valid actions and inappropriate actions happen inside of Arizona and not in their home states.
  • These “out-of-state” psychologists are not contracted through the normal bidding process.
  • These “out-of-state” psychologist’s contracts are not available on the Arizona Procurement site and have to be specifically requested.
  • These “out-of-state” psychologists are not fingerprinted in Arizona or background check by Arizona.
  • These “out-of-state” psychologists do not have to follow the Health Insurance Portability and Accountability Act (HIPAA) nor the Family Educational Rights and Privacy Act (FERPA); even though it is in their contract with the State of Arizona.
  • These “out-of-state” psychologists unethically wear more than one “hat” simultaneously;
    • Evaluator
    • Expert Witness
    • Consultant to the Arizona Department of Economic Security, Child Protective Services
    • Consultant to the Arizona Attorney General’s Office
    • Coordinator of Services and Treatment
    • Treatment Consultant
    • Trainer to Providers
    • Consultant to Provider Agencies Providing Services in the same case
  • CPS workers take these confidential Parent Psychological Evaluations completed by “out-of-state” psychologists and share them with their children, spouses, family members, inmates, and others without the knowledge of the person evaluated or the permission of the person evaluated. Clear violations of ethics, confidentiality and the law.

Governor Jan Brewer’s Role?

In January of 2014 Arizona Govenor Janice Brewer completely abolished the state’s Child Protection Agency via an executive order. In its place, she appointed all funds to be handled by her own representative, Charles Flanagan. Mr. Flangan became the director of the “Division of Child Safety and Family Services.”  The reason given for abolishing CPS was that there were 6,500 abuse and neglect cases filed that were not properly investigated.

So now Gov. Brewer has complete control of the agency that is responsible for these medical kidnappings. Is she part of the solution, or part of the problem?

The victims of the system claim she is part of the problem, not the solution. She has allegedly never responded to any of the complaints from families who have requested help after having their children seized by medical authorities via an out-of-state psychologist who is not even licensed in Arizona.

Today, Arizona has by far the highest rate of children removed from their homes and placed in foster care of any other state in the U.S. While most other states in the U.S. are seeing declines in foster care placements, Arizona is seeing the biggest percentage of increase among U.S. states. Over the past decade, Arizona had the second-largest increase in the nation, adding 7,296 children. Texas, with 4 times the population, had the most with 8,294. (Source.)

Children Abducted for Drug Trials?

Some parents, such as Melissa Diegel, have spoken out against what they see are medical experimentations on their children as part of drug trials to develop new drugs. As we have reported previously in our coverage of the Diegel family situation, just prior to the state taking custody of the two Diegel sisters, they were examined by several different doctors at PCH, all in the field of genetics. It was during this time that the girls were diagnosed with “congenital disorder of glycosylation” (CDG).

Unknown to the parents at the time, there was funding and drug trials going on for this rare condition. The glycosylation drug trial through NHGRI/ TGEN opened up on March 14th, 2014, just 3 weeks before the two Phoenix sisters were medically kidnapped.

As we reported above, drug trials and new drug development today are dependent on genetic research. In this area, Arizona is a leader. The new Translational Genomics Research Institute is in downtown Phoenix. You can see the board of directors here, which includes Arizona governor Jan Brewer and Phoenix Mayor Greg Stanton.

In addition, PCH just announced this month that billionaire doctor Patrick Soon-Shiong had joined Phoenix Children’s Hospital to open a new “Groundbreaking Pediatric Genomic Research and Translational Precision Medicine Institute.”

Forbes calls Dr. Soon-Shiong “the richest doctor who ever lived.”

It would seem they need plenty of new patients in pediatrics for drug trials for all this new research to have any “success.”

Parents Terrorized from Speaking Out

As we mentioned earlier, when children are abducted and placed into the foster care system via family court, the parents are threatened, and usually hit with gag orders against speaking out. This was done to Melissa Diegel a couple of weeks ago. When Health Impact News first reported her story, gathered from facts collected by an advocacy group which started a Facebook Page, the court ordered her to tell us to take down our story.

We did not. As the story stayed up and went viral, we started hearing from others with very similar stories, particularly from Arizona. We will begin to document them and publish them on our new website, MedicalKidnap.com. The website is still under construction, but if anyone wants to tell us their story they can contact us here.

Just before the court ordered Melissa to take down her Facebook Page and all social media regarding her children and her fight to expose what was happening at PCH, she was interviewed on blogtalkradio.com in September. Here is an excerpt we extracted from the interview, and we are sure it is a message she wants all of America to hear, a message certain people are trying hard to suppress:

From Joanne:

 

If you don’t think there is something seriously wrong with all of these cases, then you don’t fully realize the extent that corporations, including hospitals and drug companies have corrupted our beautiful country with such a great national Constitution and individual state Constitutions with many freedoms and well constructed Bills of Rights for citizens.

We have the laws. They are NOT being used.

Delores Bedin, Northwestern Memorial Hospital:  never told for 4 years that she had a polyp that developed right into pancreatic cancer.  why?  NMH receives grant money for pancreatic cancer studies.  When the daughter filed suit over the gross malpractice, NMH managed to have most of the case dismissed and this was overturned on appeal, but poor Daughter was left with only one claim–intentional infliction of emotional distress.  Her claims for violations of hers and her mother’s civil rights and wrongful death all dismissed.  As soon as NMH realized the malpractice that was committed in their hospital, they kicked poor Delores Bedin out of their hospital and denied her crucial cancer rehab.

Disgusting.

When poor Jay Brouchmeersch was overdosed by NMH staff with heparin, a dangerous blood thinner, they worked in cahoots with the nursing home, Warren Barr to kill her off. They guardianized her and the Illinois Office of State Guardian told the ER staff doctor at NMH “not to treat” and she died when poor Mother was denied crucial IV fluids for dehydration and blood transfusions.  The Daughter wanted to kidnap her mother and remove her from the nursing home and take her to Illinois Masonic for treatment.

Apparently she should have.

Staff at the OSG and NMH killed poor elderly Jay Brouckmeersch.

Does anyone care?  not Judge Quinn.

All these psychopaths must be tested and delicensed and not be paid another dime for the evil they do.
