Prior to 1978, as many as twenty-five to thirty-five percent of Native American children were removed from their parents for alleged neglect or abuse. The majority of these children were placed in non-Indian foster homes, adoptive homes, and institutions.
In 1978, Congress enacted the Indian Child Welfare Act (ICWA) to reduce the number of Native American children removed from their homes. Congress recognized, “There is no resource that is more vital to the continued existence and integrity of Indian tribes than their children,” and “that an alarmingly high percentage of Indian families are broken up by the removal, often unwarranted, of their children from them by nontribal public and private agencies.
” To reduce inappropriate removal of Indian children from their homes, ICWA provides that only tribal courts can decide abuse and neglect cases involving children whose permanent residence is a reservation.
For Indian children who do not live on a reservation, state juvenile courts can make decisions about removal, but the child’s tribe must be notified, and the tribe has the right to intervene in the case.

UPDATE – Featured Most Wanted Fugitive Arrested in Oregon
AUSTIN, TX – Donald Jack Robertson II, 43, a Texas 10 Most Wanted Fugitive and November’s featured fugitive, is now in custody after being captured on Nov. 23 in Portland, Oregon.
Robertson had been wanted since 2011 for aggravated sexual assault of a child, sexual assault of a child and indecency with a child-sexual contact. The arrest was the result of tip information, and a reward up to $10,000 will be paid.
Working off tip information, the U.S. Marshals Joint East Texas Fugitive Task Force coordinated with the U.S. Marshals Service-District of Oregon to locate and arrest Robertson at a residence in Portland. Since the arrest was the result of tip information and the tip was received during the month that Robertson was featured, the increased reward of up to $10,000 (originally $5,000) will be paid.
So far in 2015, DPS and other agencies have arrested 28 Texas 10 Most Wanted Fugitives and Sex Offenders, including 19 sex offenders, and $79,000 in rewards have been paid for tips that resulted in arrests.
One offender from the Texas 10 Most Wanted Program is featured each month in hopes the higher reward money from the Governor’s Criminal Justice Division will generate additional tips.
I had been hearing Psychologists and Psychiatrists were going to do the same as was done in the 1970’s, which was, in effect, manipulate data and studies to achieve another perversion of the morals of America.
On November 07, 2015, I found the first article of what will be many more to come.
The next day, I posted an Editorial before posting this first attempt at the further perverting of Our Country. In this Editorial I warned everyone of the tricks and out-and-out lies that will be used to sugar-coat the truth of what will steal the innocence of Our Children, and ultimately, their futures.
In one sentence this Psychologist callas this a sexual orientation, yet in the very next paragraph, she calls it sexual urges, which is the same as a fantasy.
This is not a fantasy to Our Children, nor is it make believe, THIS IS AN ADULT RAPING A CHILD!!!!
After all of this, I find that “SubWay Jared” is saying that it wasn’t his fault that he had sex with Children.
In this broken, perverse society in which we live, there is a serious lack of RESPONSIBILITY FOR A PERSON’S OWN ACTIONS, A SERIOUS LACK OF RESPECT FOR THE LAWS OF OUR LAND, AND A SERIOUS LACK OF RESPECT FOR OFFICERS OF THE LAW.
A sex offender will molest an average of 120 victims.
There are 3,000,000 reports of Child Maltreatment every year, yet far less than 25% of the incidents are ever reported. This translates to over 12,000,000 incidents of Child Maltreatment per year.
This year alone, 10,000,000 Children, ages 13 and up, will contract at least one or more STI or STD.
I have yet to locate a compiled list for the number of Children, ages Birth to 12, that will contract an STI or STD.
This year alone there will be at least 2,000,000 runaways.
At least 1 in 6 runaways will fall into Child Sex Traffickers hands.
This translates into 333,340 Children that will fall into Child Sex Traffickers hands, AND BE RAPED.
The average victims age is 11 to 14.
The average life span of a victim is 3 to 7 years.
So I want you to think about how many of these Children are being protected by a Psychologist, and I believe you are like me in one respect, and that is I DO NOT WANT ANY CHILD PREDATORS OR SEX OFFENDERS NEAR A CHILD.
Hacker collective Anonymous has declared “war is unleashed” against ISIS, the Islamic militant group that claimed responsibility for the deadly attacks that occurred Friday in Paris.
ISIS has used the Internet to recruit new members from around the world and to spread chilling images of executions and other violence.
Anonymous, a loosely affiliated group of Internet users who hack and spread leaked information, said in a series of tweets and a YouTube video that it wants to steal information from that Web traffic and force ISIS into Internet obscurity. Indeed, its #OpParis campaign aims to strip ISIS of one of its most valuable tools: the Internet.
In the YouTube video published Sunday, a masked announcer speaks in French. The statement was widely translated as saying, “Expect massive cyber attacks. War is declared. Get prepared.”
Anonymous has leveled its ire at a huge variety of individuals, groups and companies that it perceives as crossing ethical and moral lines. Their attacks involve leaking documents and taking down websites with a form of attack called distributed denial of service, which overwhelms websites with too many requests. The group’s targets have included the Ku Klux Klan, the Westboro Baptist Church (known for protesting the funerals of fallen soldiers and others in the United States), Monsanto and Koch Industries.
The list of Anonymous‘ targets also includes governments, such as Tunisia in 2011, in response to reports of censorship during the Arab Spring uprisings.
But ISIS, or the Islamic State in Iraq and Syria, which has been a warring force in the Middle East, just struck at the heart of the Western World.
Anonymous‘ announcement isn’t brand new. It began targeting ISIS earlier, especially after gunmen opened fire at the offices of French satirical magazine Charlie Hebdo in January, killing 12.
#OpParis is aimed at ISIS’ use of social media and other Web services. Beheadings and other executions of journalists, members of different Islamic groups and people accused of being gay have circulated on the Web over the past two years. Also, recruitment websites have urged people from around the world to leave their homes and fight with ISIS.
This activity has already gotten the attention of Western governments. For example, law enforcement and intelligence officers monitor recruitment websites. Anonymous seems fixed on amplifying these efforts with its brand of crowdsourced hacking, nevermind the law.
On Monday, a Twitter handle calling itself the official #OpParis account claimed a number of “pro-ISIS” accounts had been taken down.
More that 3824 Twitter accounts pro #ISIS are now #down! #ExpectUs#OpParis#Anonymous
— #OpParis (@opparisofficial) November 16, 2015
Anonymous, however, isn’t a unified group, and dissenters were tweeting their disapproval on Monday. One Anonymous-affiliated Twitter user, who goes by the handle Discordian and claims to have participated in several Anonymous hacking efforts, said he opposes #OpParis for a variety of reasons.
“How exactly do they plan to stop an international terrorist organization that has been able to plot attacks regardless of the mass-spying by governments around the globe?” Discordian wrote on a text-hosting website called Pastebin.
Predictions from those in the cybersecurity industry of whether Anonymous will be successful are mixed, with experts saying they understand why Anonymous wants to target ISIS.
Stu Sjouwerman, founder and CEO of cybersecurity company KnowBe4, is optimistic that Anonymous will be successful. “I wish Anonymous good luck with this campaign,” he said.
