NEO: America’s war on her own children

    by Gordon Duff. VT Sr. Editor, …and New Eastern Outlook of the Russian Academy of Science (Est. 1816)


    On April 29, 2020, a 16-year-old African American boy was involved in what institutional staff decided was a dangerous confrontation at a ‘for profit’ child prison run by a politically connected healthcare firm.

    The child threw a piece of bread and was crushed to the ground, pleading for air, until his breathing stopped, and he went into cardiac arrest in a full George Floyd moment, one behind locked doors.

    About the same time, four African Americans were found hanging in trees, all ruled suicides by police.

    There is a tie in here, which we will be developing but first we will look at this Michigan case and gain perspective on a trend in not just racist abuse but in the wider area of child abuse, child imprisonment and human rights violations that are now a part of American society at every level.

    From Newsweek:

    “A Michigan Department of Health and Human Services investigation found that a teen in the care of Lakeside for Children died after staff members restrained him by putting their weight on his chest and abdomen.

    Sixteen-year-old Cornelius Frederick, a ward of Michigan, died on May 1 at a local hospital, following an April 29 encounter with staff members at Lakeside For Children after he threw a sandwich. In response, several staff members approached the teenager and restrained him, Capt. Craig Habel of the Kalamazoo Department of Public Safety confirmed to Habel said when staff realized the teen was unresponsive, they called for emergency responders who arrived and discovered he was in cardiac arrest.

    According to the executive summary released by MDHHS, “multiple staff participated in this restraint and several were observed on the video with their weight on [Frederick’s] chest, abdomen and legs, making this an unsafe and excessive restraint.” The summary also says the restraint was not part of the treatment plan for the teen, that the staff members reacted “significantly disproportionate” to his behavior and that no one else among other staff, nurses or supervisors stepped in to stop or correct the restraint.

    The MDHHS investigation determined 10 violations connected to the facility, including that the staff present waited “approximately 12 minutes” after Frederick was removed from the restraint to call 911, despite policies instructing that emergency responders be called immediately. Additionally, no one administered first aid to the teenager.

    The failure to call for paramedics was despite Frederick being “limp and unresponsive,” and concerns over his “coloring and pulse,” the summary said. The nurse in charge who failed to act was fired from her job, the summary said.”

    We have seen this before with George Floyd and so many others but these weren’t police, these were “treatment specialists” at a “youth academy,” one of hundreds that warehouse uncounted numbers of American children who will become the next generation of American adults. Good luck with that.

    Lakeside Academy in Kalamazoo Michigan is run by Sequel Youth Services, a company that runs dozens of prisons for children around the US as part of an industry that is never reported on, never investigated and that almost got away with murder, but not this time.

    You see, three staff members at Lakeside Academy are facing charges in the killing of a child in their care.

    The business of America, as much as anything else, is to lock Americans up and to pass laws criminalizing everything. Is this an oversimplification?

    Nearly 40 percent of Americans have a criminal conviction of some kind and a vast number, no one knows for sure, are imprisoned or under some aspect of supervision and loss of rights beyond that of normal Americans who are watched all day every day and who enjoy fewer rights and freedoms with every election.

    Since 9/11, Americans have increasingly been reclassified as “potential suspects” by not only militarized police but by an internal investigative capability fueled by runaway budgets for the NSA and Homeland Security and, worse still, by regimes that hand out bulk contracts for billions to fake companies set up overnight by political contributors.

    Feeding this cycle, always, is the controlled press and a seemingly endless cycle of “incidents,” mass shootings and bombings, that are never really investigated, except, of course, by governmental organizations that have the most to gain by the continuation of these same tragic events.

    With America pushing $30 trillion of debt, there isn’t any sector of society that is safe from being thrown into the grist mill of the police state for profit but the most sinister of all is the game being played against America’s children by the same type of people who profit from terrorism and war.

    What isn’t known, what isn’t asked about, is the war on America’s children. How many children are “under restraint,” either heavily medicated, watched and “hospitalized” or are in a “corrections environment” for behavioral issues?

    With the meltdown in America, millions denying science, millions more addicted to a mix of internet porn and hoaxterism, parenting falls to the wayside. Add to the mix millions more Americans of every socioeconomic level medicated with legal cannabis or alcohol and millions more addicted to opiates and methamphetamine, a generation of young Americans has been tossed out with the trash as it were.

    There is no one to notice, not with what is going on.

    Monuments are toppled, stores looted, while the media, as usual, does everything to stir the pot. While the “bread and circuses” of street theatre keep John Q. Public both entertained and polarized, what goes on behind the scenes, does so with impunity. So, what does go on?

    It is no secret that militarized police exist to, if that John Q. Public were asked, “keep down dissident and unreliable elements of the public.” The racket there, of course, is to create the conflict and then provide the cure, a cure that never cures but only inflames, a war on crime for profit that parallels the equally fake war on drugs for profit that has pushed tens of billions of dollars to politically aligned contracting firms.

    The war on terror was much the same, the dollar figures however higher by a decimal point.

    It is this environment that has produced the most shameful of all efforts, that of profiting on the breakdown of American society by incarcerating children en masse, locking them up, drugging them, “suiciding them” and, as has been the case over and over, trafficking them for sex as well, all done within an ever more bloated bureaucracy of fake social welfare.

    We remind those who have forgotten of the Franklin Affair and the real story behind the scandal at the Presidio, at that time the headquarters of the US Army’s psychological warfare capability.

    As early as the 1980s and before, children were being trafficked from day care facilities, from “youth homes,” the precursors of today’s “gulag archipelago” of “academy-prisons” to the child brothels of Washington DC or to the political elites of the US. In an attempt to end investigations into real abuses that have progressed to present day, those involved in this pattern of abusing institutionalized youth were, according to sources, responsible for creating the hoax known as “Pizzagate.”

    While trafficking children isn’t new, it is the political mechanisms tied to these scandals of the Reagan and Bush 41 presidencies that gave license to what we may well be seeing in this one lone incident in Kalamazoo Michigan.

    A child drugged by his captors can’t fight back, can never testify to abuse and, simply by existing, becomes a business asset for an industry that runs secret prisons for imaginary terror suspects. Here, however, no rendition flights are needed, no street kidnappings, simply friendly judges, useful and corrupt social workers and government officials and a disinterested public.

    Will a single killing be taken as the isolated incident, which it obviously is not, or will something be done?

    1. Simultaneously, it is increasingly less desirable to adopt older children due to risk. One couple adopted a girl, and she accused the dude of sexual deviance, they spent tens of thousands of dollars fighting the charges, and in the end proven innocent, and found out she had done this twice previously. The records had to be obtained through private investigation, and the children’s home’s push the riskiest children for adoption first. The money flows are almost always connected, food supply contracts, etc…and “investors” have replaced care givers. The mess is a by product of forced behavior holistically applied to an entire society and tons of children are overly sentenced for minor infractions. This raises alleged success rates and gets even more lucrative contracts. They want to keep the well behaved and act like they accomplished something, while lying to adopt out the broken instead of care giving.

    2. The Lakeside for Children staff should have notified DHS that Cornelius Frederick was committing a terrorist act when he threw the sandwich, then he could have been killed with no repercussions.

    3. I think all sentient individuals involved can agree, Blacks and Whites are not the problem here the media is. I’m on record already, and frankly I really don’t give a dam if I ever sell a Mainstream Media piece. Both the incident in Minneapolis and the incident in Atlanta were staged. But the question is by who or by what and were the intentions behind doing so just another evil deep state plot to divide and conquer or an altruistic effort to bring the real problems we have here in America into such sharp focus that even the automatons can see them. I go with the latter, but the media has thrown everything they got into turning it into the former. We have 5% of the world’s population and 25% of the worlds incarcerated. That is by very definition the worlds most prolific police state. The Trumpsters, led by Michael Savage who is the sharpest tool in their shed, are appalled that their orange hero has done nothing but tweet while America burns. But can he do anything about it? The police who are now standing down in mass, are under control of the respective governors of their states, as are the National Guard units. The army of which he is supposed to be Commander and Chief have made it abundantly clear that they will not follow his orders should he declare Marshall Law. And so America burns, and I suspect will continue to burn until the real problem is addressed. The corporate controlled media must be disbanded with the utmost prejudice. Put them all, down to the lowliest geeks in the mailroom, in the very same prisons they have filled with Americas poor. Only then can we address coherently Americas very real problems…

      • The situation will have to get much worse than now for the “automatons” to break their brainwash conditioning that “USA is No 1” and the greatest nation of all peoples and all times. We still have a third of the population thinking Trump is doing a wonderful job and most of the remaining two-thirds believing putting a different set of deep state cutouts in Washington, District of Criminals will fix things.

    4. Pizzagate morphed into intentionally misleading loopy story since it led straight to the satanic witches den of fun and kicks for HRC via the leaked emails and Anthony Weiner’s laptop too.
      Don’t think HRC would do such acts? Look at Hillary’s 2011 Libyan invasion by 250,000 terrorist head chopper rapist torturers on payroll of US state dept., CIA, NATO as to what she is capable of, and covering up.
      Funny the “angry gunman” fired a single shot from street hit the computer in satan’s pizza den full of evidence square in hard drive. Guess they can’t investigate now!
      Accusers and victims in pedophile sex trafficing ring to DC politicians (AKA Franklin scandal) and elite went to jail for slander! That’s how it works and still does in all subjects nowadays “blame the victims”

      Nobody actually guilty went to jail for sex trafficking and pedophile rape kidnapping etc just for “financial scandal”
      Note how it’s bottled up as “Franklin savings and loan scandal”
      When better description is “Larry E King black republican multimillionaire good friend of US presidents and politicians pedophile prostitution and sex trafficking business that served the high and mighty in USA”
      The millionaire republican black politician Larry King (not the newsman) who kidnapped groomed and sold young sex slaves to the likes of George Bush head of cia is still alive and kicking free on the street.

      • The ‘witches den’ was always within the GOP and St. Hubertus. Absolutely NOTHING to do with Hillary or Weiners stupid dick pics.

        But you know that.

        I was the one that investigated King for the GOP. No evidence against Bush but there was for everyone else prettymuch.
