Executive Order on Strengthening
the Child Welfare System
for America’s Children

We opened NOT IN MY WORLD!!!! as a one-page gift to Google+ and all it’s users, on August 19, 2014, with 7 members in #OurCircle.  Since that day, we have been very active in the war being waged for Our Children, and seen many Blessings.

In those first days, weeks, and possibly even months, at this point in time I think we, for the most part thought the people we were fighting was something like perverted men dressed in raincoats, standing around and flashing women and children.

I don’t mind telling this like it really is, and was… it wasn’t long before everything we read and saw hit us, and opened deep mental wounds, and assaulted all of our senses, and nothing has changed as far as that.

I can’t help but cry as I look back on all this, here we were adults having innocence ripped away from us, by what was/is done to Our Children almost every minute of every day.

It took quiet some time before we learned of Senator Nancy Schaefer, but the rest of what I list here is documented on our website or our blog, down thru January 2016.

THE CORRUPT BUSINESS OF CHILD PROTECTIVE SERVICES by Senator Nancy Schaefer, November 16, 2007

SHAME ON U.S.  Failings by All Three Branches of Our Federal Government Leave Abused and Neglected Children Vulnerable to Further Harm – January 27, 2015

A study by the Children’s Advocacy Institute at the University of San Diego School of Law, which says children are suffering as a result.

Obama administration delivered illegal immigrant children to predators, lawmakers say

Worse yet, the administration acknowledged that it can’t account for each of the 90,000 children it processed and released since the surge peaked in 2014.

My post on January 30, 2016 had a dead link, and I already knew this was one I enjoyed, because Senator John McCain got so upset with Mark Greenberg and CPS, that he walked out of the bipartisan congressional investigation.  The article led the reader to believe that possibly 10 – 30 Children were “missing”,  when the link was fixed that number had grown to 90,000+ Children.

HHS Official Jerry Milner was appointed three years ago to oversee much of the departments child welfare work.

President Trump’s Executive Order on June 24, 2020

Health and Human Services Secretary Alex Azar hailed the order as a step toward “bold reforms”.  The goals are ambitious – curtailing child maltreatment, strengthening adoption programs and encouraging supports for at-risk families so fewer children need to be separated from their homes and placed in foster care.

Section 1.  Purpose.  Every child deserves a family.  Our States and communities have both a legal obligation, and the privilege, to care for our Nation’s most vulnerable children.

The best foster care system is one that is not needed in the first place.  My Administration has been focused on prevention strategies that keep children safe while strengthening families so that children do not enter foster care unnecessarily. Last year, and for only the second time since 2011, the number of children in the foster care system declined, and for the third year in a row, the number of children entering foster care has declined.

Sec. 2.  Encouraging Robust Partnerships Between State Agencies and Public, Private, Faith-based, and Community Organizations.

Sec. 5.  Improving Processes to Prevent Unnecessary Removal and Secure Permanency for Children.

(iv) Within 6 months of the date of this order, the Secretary shall provide guidance to States regarding flexibility in the use of Federal funds to support and encourage high-quality legal representation for parents and children, including pre-petition representation, in their efforts to prevent the removal of children from their families, safely reunify children and parents, finalize permanency, and ensure that their voices are heard and their rights are protected.  The Secretary shall also ensure collection of data regarding State use of Federal funds for this purpose.

Sec. 6.  Indian Child Welfare Act.  Nothing in this order shall alter the implementation of the Indian Child Welfare Act or replace the tribal consultation process.

Owner of Manhattan, Kansas restaurant bound over on 26 child sex counts

MANHATTAN, KANSAS  –  The longtime owner of a Manhattan restaurant has been bound over on 26 charges of sexual abuse against minors, KMAN Radio reports.

Arraignment is scheduled for July in Riley County District Court for Robert Iacobellis, 62, the owner of Bob’s Diner.

Charges range from aggravated indecent liberties to rape and sodomy.

KMAN reports that 24 of the counts carry a life sentence.

During a preliminary hearing Tuesday in Riley County District Court, three victims testified that Iacobellis touched, fondled or sexually assaulted them on numerous occasions, sometimes when they were as young as 7 years old, KMAN reports.

Iacobellis will be tried on 16 counts against the first victim, including charges of rape and sodomy;  six counts of aggravated indecent liberties against a second victim; and four counts against a third victim.

During testimony at Tuesday’s preliminary hearing, one of the victims alleged the abuse began when her mother — who is a former weekend employee at Bob’s Diner — had Iacobellis watch her while she went to work.  That victim alleged the abuse continued until January 2019.

Judge William Malcolm found enough probable cause from the testimony to proceed to trial.

Iacobellis was arrested in August 2019.  An amended complaint listed 130 total charges against the three alleged victims.

Iacobellis will be arraigned at 2:30 p.m. July 6 with Judge Kendra Lewison presiding.
According to KMAN, Iacobellis remains jailed on a $400,000 bond.

TN Nurse Has License Suspended Five Years

Tessa Proffitt, of Jonesborough, was found guilty on six counts.

Nurse convicted for sharing information
on child rape has license suspended

JOHNSON CITY, TN  –  A former Johnson City Medical Center nurse who was a sexual assault examiner has had her license suspended for five years, 18 months after she was found guilty of unlawful disclosure of confidential child sex abuse information.

Tessa Proffitt, of Jonesborough, was found guilty on six counts in November 2018 after she was discovered to have communicated with the mother of a child rape suspect about the case.  William David Blevins was convicted in the case of rape of a child who was 10 years old at the time of the offenses.

During its investigation into Blevins, the Tennessee Bureau of Investigation (TBI) discovered Proffitt was communicating with Alicia May, a registered nurse who is Blevins’ mother, according to a Tennessee Board of Nursing agreed order.

Proffitt, as a sexual assault nurse examiner, had performed a rape examination on Blevins’ victim and collected evidence for a rape kit.

A Washington County grand jury initially charged Proffitt with two counts of tampering with evidence and one count of criminal conspiracy to tamper with evidence in addition to the unlawful disclosure charges.

WOMAN INDICTED FOR REVEALING INFO, TAMPERING IN CHILD SEX ABUSE CASE

She was sentenced to 11 months 29 days probation, ordered to perform 60 hours of community service and fined $250.

During the suspension of her nursing license, Proffitt is ordered to obtain 15 hours of Tennessee Board of Nursing-approved ethics training and 15 hours regarding HIPAA/confidentiality.

She must also pay two separate $1,000 fines and take and pass the Ethics and Boundaries Assessment Exam.

Blevins, of Johnson City, was charged in November 2019 with violating the sex offender registry.

PBS New Series Airs Just In Time for
Gay Pride Month

PBS is going all out to celebrate LGBTQ+ Pride Month by launching a six-episode series of short videos on a dedicated YouTube Channel created by its Digital Studios.

Each Tuesday, which began May 26, PBS will release Prideland vignette focusing on an LGBTQ+ person and how that person deals with the ever-changing attitudes of Southern communities toward homosexual lifestyles.

On June 12, PBS will offer its member television stations the opportunity to air a one-hour companion special featuring series host and homosexual activist Dyllón Burnside.

PBS’s decision to partner with Burnside to push the homosexual agenda is an unjust attack on Christianity and a mockery of the Bible and God’s design for human sexuality.

Sadly, PBS is proudly promoting a lifestyle that is unhealthy to both the individual who participates in the unnatural sexual behavior and to society as a whole.

For example, Episode 2 is titled “An Openly Gay Pastor’s Journey to Acceptance in the Bible Belt.” PBS describes the episode this way: “Burnside introduces viewers to Rob Lowry, an openly gay minister at a small, but mainstream church in Jackson, Mississippi.  He was offered the job before the church knew he was gay, but they accepted him with open arms when he told them he would only take the position if he could lead while openly gay.”

Other videos highlight transgenders, same-sex adoptions, and sexual “hookups.”

In 2020, PBS received $445 million in taxpayer fundingThis means you and I are directly paying for PBS to insult our faith and scoff at our God.

I hope you will take a moment to let PBS know you oppose its support and promotion of this series.

TAKE ACTION

Sign our petition to PBS urging it to break all ties with Burnside and cancel all involvement in Prideland.

Be sure to forward this to your family and friends, and invite them to sign the petition too.

Take Action
