CPS Intimidates Parents Who Leave the House

May 20, 2020

An Oregon mom said Child Protective Services (CPS) visited her home after she defied the governor's lockdown orders.

"Our home is completely safe and always has been," said salon owner Lindsey Graham. "[The CPS agent] came back to my home, and my intention was, "Great, let this guy in and let him see what a fine, loving, clean, and happy home we have, so he'll just kind of get out of here."

In tears, she said: "He interviewed myself and my husband in separate rooms. He interviewed my 6-year-old son in a separate room, and he searched our home. He made me lift toilet seats and open our fridge. None of this is warranted. These are all bogus claims." Graham told the Washington Examiner, "this is definitely some kind of vendetta, sending a government agency after my family."

Right now, a bill in Congress will spend 100 billion dollars establishing "contact tracers" to invade your privacy and to enable them to further harass innocent parents. This bill pushes contact tracing surveillance on "everyone" in America. Oppose this bill today by letting Congress hear from you. -Mat

Mrs. Graham is not the only one threatened by CPS. One family of nine recently had moved and wanted to open a joint checking account. Bank employees immediately questioned why they had brought their five youngest children inside with them and demanded they leave because of COVID-19 guidelines.

When they got home from the bank, the police and CPS were waiting for them and their "five children." They wanted to strip search the little ones and pushed the family to have a full physical evaluation at a health department location, which carries a much higher risk of exposing the children to COVID-19.

We are seeing horrific abuses by government agents wanting to split up families, and they are using COVID-19 as a cover to do it. New York state is working on a bill that would give politicians the ability to "order the removal and/or detention of a person" if they are merely a "suspected" case of sickness that politicians believe "may pose an imminent and significant threat to the public health."

Did you catch that? This bill could apply to someone who is perfectly healthy, never had coronavirus, and never will. Yet, the state wants to give the authority to imprison those who "may" be a cause of "severe morbidity." But keep in mind that one definition of morbidity is "Given to or characterized by unwholesome thoughts or feelings."

As this bill is currently written, New York politicians would be able to detain someone who is perfectly healthy, who might someday contribute to someone else's unwholesome thoughts. If that person is a single parent, the children would be separated, even if they are showing no symptoms or don't even have the virus.

This increased invasion of privacy is being encouraged by federal bill HR 6666, which will give one hundred billion tax dollars to private citizens, high schools, nonprofits and any randomly "approved" group, to be trained to spy on their fellow Americans, which will increase situations like these parents have faced. Help us shut this bill down by sending a clear message to Congress to end the spying!

The involvement of CPS already is happening. In addition, Big Pharma companies are rushing to make the first vaccine. They will have zero liability for any medical complications or deaths caused by the vaccine and hundreds of billions of dollars to gain.

Years ago, my legal team went to court because CPS wanted to take a healthy child away because the parents didn't want to vaccinate. We won that case and established a powerful legal precedent. However, our nation is reconsidering that legal area again.

Retired Harvard Law professor Alan Dershowitz is publicly claiming, "You have no right not to be vaccinated, you have no right not to wear a mask, you have no right to open up your business." He continued, "And if you refuse to be vaccinated, the state has the power to literally take you to a doctor's office and plunge a needle into your arm."

The government is inserting itself into controlling more and more of your life—in this case even what is inside your body.

It's time for us to push back. It's time to stop spending more of your tax dollars to break up families and remove even healthy people from their homes. It's time to block this domestic spying from going full gestapo. Send this message to the legislators that have the power to stall HR 6666.

We are seeing the petty actions of empowered tyrants being exposed all over our nation. Right now, Liberty Counsel Action is uniquely positioned to fight for good public policies in Congress, in courts and in states and municipalities across America.
