Citing the Heath and Human Services website, a report posted Wednesday at the Freedom Outpost says that under Obamacare, government agents can engage in "home health visits" for those in certain “high-risk” categories.
Those categories include:
• Families where mom is not yet 21;
• Families where someone is a tobacco user; firearms owner;
• Families where children have low student achievement, developmental delays, or disabilities, and
• Families with individuals who are serving or formerly served in the armed forces, including such families that have members of the armed forces who have had multiple deployments outside the United States.
According to HHS, the visits fall under what is called the "Maternal, Infant and Early Childhood Home Visiting Program" allegedly designed to “help parents and children,” and could impact millions of Americans.
Constitutional attorney and author Kent Masterson Brown said that despite what HHS says, the program is not “voluntary."
"The eligible entity receiving the grant for performing the home visits is to identify the individuals to be visited and intervene so as to meet the improvement benchmarks," he said.
> "A homeschooling family, for instance, may be subject to 'intervention' in 'school readiness' and 'social-emotional developmental indicators.'
>A farm family may be subject to 'intervention' in order to 'prevent child injuries.' The sky is the limit."
Joshua Cook said that while the administration would claim the program only applies to those on Medicaid, the new law, by its own definition, has no such limitation.
"Intervention," he added, quoting Brown, "may be with any family for any reason.
>It may also result in the child or children being required to go to certain schools or taking certain MEDICATIONS and VACCINES and
>even having "MORE LIMITED" – or "NO INTERACTION AT ALL" WITH THE PARENTS.
The federal government will now set the standards for raising children and will enforce them by home visits.”
According to Cook, the program will require collection of a massive amount of private information including all sources of income and the amount gathered from each source.
One of the areas of emphasis mentioned by HHS is the "development of comprehensive early childhood systems that span the prenatal-through-age-eight continuum."
Last session, Cook added, South Carolina State Rep. Bill Chumley introduced a measure that would make the forced home visitations illegal in his state. The measure passed in the House but died in the Senate.
In 2011, he noted, HHS said $224 million would be allocated to support these home visiting programs.
Obamacare wants to come and take your children so they can brainwash them at an early age and dumb them down to be a gov. slave for the rest of their lives.
My god, this is one of the most Orwellian, diabolical schemes those miscreants in Washington have ever devised! You see what they're trying to do here? They've found the motive and the means to get government spies into your home. The so-called "home health visits" are actually invasions of privacy that will allow Big Brother to collect all kinds of information about you, your family and your lifestyle.
But that's just the beginning. If you're deemed unfit or not up to government standards of child-rearing, you could be subject to an "intervention." Which means that your child/children could very well be taken from you and put into the loving care of the State. And we know what the State will do to them, because we have ample evidence of the rampant abuse, neglect, disappearances and murder of children while in State custody/foster care. (Just recently, a little girl was abducted from her parents by CPS because they smoked pot. She was killed by the monster the court forced her to live with.)
If you don't believe it will happen here, just take a look at what's been happening in Britain. Yes, they get little "home health" visits, too. And their kids are being stolen from them by the thousands.
Gotta love it... home visits for tobacco users; firearms owners. And they lump that into one category. WTF??? Let's see how that works out for them ;)
I'm so sick of these Nanny State Politicians trying to dictate how we live our lives and demonize those of us who practice our freedoms on a daily basis. It is my choice (freedom) to smoke as long as it is not hurting others and it is my right to own firearms under the 2nd Amendment to the Constitution... so stick your Obamacare up your arse.
The snooping agents will probably be operating under a quota system. They'll be required to determine and enforce x number of "interventions" per x number of visits, or something along those lines. Perhaps they'll get bonus pay if they exceed their quota.
One thing is certain: The system has been completely rigged to promote the agenda of the Nanny State, which is another tentacle of the NWO. They're seizing control of everything! They're sinking their claws into every single aspect of our existence. Now they're going to be invading homes, digging for any evidence they can find (or make up) that would justify these so-called "interventions."
Bolsheviks in power destroying every shred of freedom and individuality.
This article is taking a lot of stuff out of context and is omitting important elements. For example, the STATES already have this program in place. The provision simply makes grants available to make them more effective. Grants, by definition, are voluntary. What I take away from it after reading it is this: It is the ones who NEED to be looked at, those homes where the kids are absent from school, do poorly in school, take advantage of EVERY welfare program there is and the kids are still at risk, those who live in the impoverished neighborhoods where there is typically a lot of crimes, domestic violence and drugs. You all need to learn how to access the actual ACA as passed and read the thing. It's not that difficult and you might find out that alot of what we have been told about how bad it is is just flat wrong! I know I changed my views after finding out FOX and the RW media echo bots lied about so much of it. http://www.hrsa.gov/grants/apply/assistance/homevisiting/homevisiti...
Ok, I slogged through the doublespeak of the ACA and the supplemental document on the HRSA link. It all sounds like a good plan, but only if you buy into the myth that government can actually fix deep-rooted, socioeconomic problems--many of which were created by GOVERNMENT!--with more bureaucracy and intrusive measures.
Apart from the fact that government is nothing more than a giant clusterfuck of waste, deceit, corruption, ineptitude and malfeasance that screws up and degrades just about everything it touches, I have other concerns about this "home visitation" program:
1. While there are certainly kids being raised in truly god-awful environments, there are others who would be categorized at risk because the at-risk indicators are rather broad. Read the ACA modification, and you'll see that it isn't just targeting the kinds of homes you mentioned: https://grants3.hrsa.gov/2010/Web2External/Interface/FundingCycle/E...
2. Since our Big Brother government has destroyed the public trust, and has shown wanton disregard for constitutional law, the very idea of a government agent being permitted (involuntarily) into one's home to gather information is disturbing. I would consider such an agent as an undercover spy, and a potential threat to my constitutional rights.
3. We've read and heard far too many horror stories about what happens to kids who are placed in State custody. Many of them were abducted from their parents CPS for the flimsiest, most spurious allegations of abuse, neglect or endangerment. They were happy, healthy and well cared for, but the State had to show that it knew better. So these kids were placed in foster homes with pedophiles, abusers and murderers posing as "caretakers." (Oh, by the way, foster parents get grant money, too. It's a nice little business, taking care of the kiddies who get ripped from their parents' loving arms because some CPS asswipe decide that would be a good idea.)
All this being said, please don't get me wrong, John. I understand where you're coming from, and I respect that. We should be as well-informed as possible before drawing conclusions about anything. I welcome any reply you might have to my comments. And that goes for any other 12160 member who wishes to reply. Thanks... Peaceout.
My sentiments exactly! Well said and thank you for the clarifications.
I wonder if this will be combined with ramped up gun confiscations in NY & CO. Surrender your guns or anything else the archons deem to be contraband/ illegal - or we take your children (which of course is their intention, regardless)
There's a very real possibility that the overlords will use children as pawns in their desparate efforts to confiscate firearms. "Give up your guns or give up your kids." The main thing is, Big Brother wants you to always believe that he is here to help you. And once he tricks you into believing that, and once he sets foot inside your home to determine what kind of "help" you need, it's over. He'll strip you, rape you, abduct your children, take your property, throw you in prison or a mental institution, beat you to a bloody pulp...
Or you can comply with his demands. Your choice.
October 1, 2013 is the first day of Halloween, same time when Obama does not care. We must stop this!
I bet alot of people will be arrested over something they don't like.
