State Takes Child Support for Dead Wife

from Channel 9 WFTV

state-unlawful-child-support-Hernandez-FloridaWell after the death of Dave Hernandez’s estranged wife Michelle, the state continues taking child support money from his paychecks. It is doing that despite the fact that his four sons now live with him

Nearly four months after Hernandez gave the state a copy of his estranged wife Michelle’s death certificate money is still being taken from him.

“The answer that I would get from them was, ‘We’re going to continue taking the money out until this case is closed,'” Hernandez said.

Hernandez said the state is taking more than $800 a month from his checks.

He said the loss of that money is making it difficult to care for his children.

“It’s been pretty rough. It’s been rough,” he said.

The state owes Hernandez nearly $3,000. Hernandez said $6,000 would be a more realistic estimate. He said it is money he needs to buy food, clothes, and beds for the boys.

“The way they treated me was really bad,” Hernandez said. Clearly, the civil rights of this family have been violated. Will the state repent?

Any of you want to get on the band wagon with the state of Florida? Have a go!

U.S. Agency Rule Involving Child Support Debt

debtor's prison - tyrannySomebody just didn’t think it through. How else to see a new federal policy that could deprive people who owe back child support of precisely 100 percent of their federal benefits, even if that is their only income source?

The policy, set to take effect next year, is an unintended consequence of a move by the Treasury Department to pay all benefits electronically. Those payments will include Social Security, disability and veterans’ benefits.

As long as payments could be issued by mailed checks, states were limited to collecting 65 percent of a federal benefit amount.

Most of the people owing child support, of course, are male.

According to an Associated Press report, in many cases, the debts are old. The kids they were destined for have grown up. In some cases, the kids are now supporting their elderly parent.

But if states previously stepped in to make welfare payments for the kids because Dad wasn’t paying child support, the states are entitled to go after the father for the debt and accumulated interest. Most of the money garnished, in fact, will go to states, not to the children.

It doesn’t matter why the parent couldn’t make payments. He may have been in prison or another institution. He may be disabled. And, to be sure, he may be a deadbeat, able to hold a job and make payments, but who chose not to do so.

Estimates are that 275,000 men are vulnerable to the changes.

The change that wrought this debacle in the making was no act of Congress, but a rule made by a federal agency.

So, of course, it can be unmade, and somewhere in the bowels of government, we’re told, that’s in the works. But some people interviewed for the report said the policy is legally unavoidable. The dilemma is whether to restrain states trying to collect a legal debt, or depriving people of their only income.

That to us is a no-brainer. Three-fourths of parents who owe $30,000 or more either had no reported income or income less than $10,000. Earnings for many were interrupted by disability or jail. They’re considered unlikely ever to pay the debt.

We expect the rule to be amended soon. If it remains, a 19th century debtor’s prison might be preferable.

The opinion of this post presumes that government actions mentioned in this article are ‘unintentional.’ I think not. This IS deliberate, but the media and the rest of the nation have caught on to the foul smell of tyranny. Whether by policy, by law, by interagency statute, the tyranny is the same. The United States is already on the fast track.

$35 Billion in Child Support Owed in US: 41% Paid

baby money

The picture for parents with young children who are owed child support is grim, and it is getting worse, according to a recent report by the US Census Bureau. The percentage of custodial parents getting full payment is dropping at an alarming rate. Fewer parents received child support in 2009 when compared to 2007 payment percentages. Only 41.2 percent of parents received the full amount of support due in 2009, compared with 46.9 percent in 2007. Hundreds of thousands of families could be looking at a hole in their household budgets when child support payments don’t arrive.

Child Support by the Numbers

The big numbers from the report, Custodial Mothers and Fathers and Their Child Support: 2009, showed that child support is just about an economy on its own. The amount of support owed in 2009 was $35.1 billion, of which only 61 percent was paid. The report centered on child support received by custodial parents from noncustodial parents, and included cash child support payments and non-cash support, such as gifts, clothing and health insurance.

Here are some highlights from the report:

• Based on 2010 numbers, 22.0 million children lived with 13.7 million custodial parents, while their non-custodial parent lived elsewhere-that’s about one-fourth of all children under 21 years old living with families
• Poverty levels in custodial parents’ families were up about 5 percent in 2009 compared to 2001 numbers, with 28.3 percent of custodial parents in poverty
• Child support is a key part of a custodial parent’s income, making up 20.8 percent of income for all custodial parents, and 62.6 percent of income for those living at poverty levels
• Chances for receiving all child support owed go up along with a custodial parent’s age, education level and employment

The lawyers of the system and the system itself want you to… demand that you do things their way. Check out the Repeal Bradley blog for details as the government robs from the poor without concern for their well-being on any level, violates your civil rights and nourishes corporate judicial entities with a collection bonus for every dollar collected.

Human Slavery & Trafficking in the USA

by E.J. Manning

slavery to childrenTo define slavery on any level is a hot topic, whether forced labor, labor in bondage, slavery or trafficking. Today, several standards are used.

CNN claims that “slavery occurs when one person completely controls another person, using violence or the threat of violence to maintain that control, exploits them economically, pays them nothing and they cannot walk away.” This is a nice general definition except for the part about paying nothing. Underemployment and underpayment, which is robbery through force or coercion is not addressed. Nations love legalized slavery that can be justified. Even the “generous and freedom-espousing” United States has become a robber baron of the people while pretending to be interested in the rights of citizens and democracy. Other modern nations mandate similar policies in the name of what is often an arbitrary degree of fairness.

The United Nations has made themselves a political authority on the topic of human slavery and trafficking. What is interesting is that they try to deny any definition of slavery and instead focus on human trafficking, particularly against women.

Human trafficking is defined in the U.N. Trafficking Protocol as “the recruitment, transport, transfer, harboring or receipt of a person by such means as threat or use of force or other forms of coercion, of adbuction, or fraud or deception for the purpose of exploitation.”

The definition on trafficking consists of three core elements:

1) the recruitment, transportation, transfer, harboring or receipt of persons

2) includes threat of or use of force, deception, coercion, abuse of power or position of vulnerability

3) trafficking which is always exploitation. In the words of the Trafficking Protocol, article 3 “exploitation shall include, at a minimum, the exploitation of the prostitution of others or other forms of sexual exploitation, forced labor or services, slavery or practices similar to slavery, servitude or the removal of organs.

The United Nations already knows that a number of modern nations are on the fence where their definition of human trafficking is concerned. How? This is simply based on how they treat and handle their own citizens. However, this is simply ignored as legal behavior where space-holding nations are concerned. While these definitions are fairly broad by design, you can see that using the United Nations protocol, even the major sponsor and shareholder of the United Nations, the United States, is riding the borders of the  illegal human trafficking of its citizens through the repeated violations of Constitutional Rights of citizens through a kangaroo court system based on unequal representation, through the adversarial execution of the Bradley Amendment for Social Security which results in jailing, punitive fines, enforcement of poverty (economic oppression) and removing the ability of citizens to make a living.

When you haul a man or woman to jail with the intent to coerce him or her into paying child support or any other civil obligation, you satisfy the first, second and third definitions of human trafficking. The government is transporting, transferring, harboring and receiving citizens into custody in order to exploit them against the guaranteed rights of an American citizen. They seek to coerce and bully, to exploit into forced labor and servitude against their will and against the original provisions of the nation. This doesn’t matter, however, because of “legal precedence,” the current standard of justice in the United States.

The United Nations says that this matters. Too bad nobody is listening.

captiveIt has been said that slaves are not allowed to walk away from their jobs. This is hardly the case. Many cannot work. In wealthier nations, these poor souls may be on disability through no real fault of their own. Even with slavery “outlawed,” estimates are that 27 million slaves fit the classical definition of slaves by world authorities, even though that definition is not crystal clear. More and more, citizens are becoming bonded laborers in their own nations as the leaders spend money like water to pander and garner influence. Poverty is cast upon the people as if it is a badge of honor to sacrifice for the better of the nation.

Nations like the United States pretend to help as they play political and social slight of hand.

Consider this. For those that are not at the bottom of the social ladder, ending poverty and oppression would be a disaster. If there were no poverty or oppression in the world, who would plow the fields? Who would harvest our vegetables and pick blueberries? Who would work in the rendering plants? Who would clean our toilets? Who would pay the bills even though nobody really does, preferring to borrow to pay another day?  No wonder people at the high end are not rushing to solve the poverty and oppression. The authorities and many with influence benefit from poverty and oppression, even by violating the rights of other human beings. For many, poverty and legalized oppression is not a problem, but an asset.
