Child put in care and you will NOT believe why!

Elderly couple tells of distress after grandchild put into foster care because they were 'too old'

Mattie McGrath TD


Irish Mirror reports:
A TD has called for immediate action after a child was taken from his grandparents and put into foster care - because they were deemed too old to look after him.
Independent Mattie McGrath has urged new Children's Minister Katherine Zappone to demand clarification from agency Tusla over the removal of a boy from the care of his relatives in Co Tipperary.
TheJournal.ie reported this morning that a letter was sent by the agency to the couple, who are in their mid-60s, telling them that their age was the reason for the forced removal and that a gap of no more than 40 years is recommended.
The boy was placed with a foster family in another country, despite the couple's attempt to convince the agency of their suitability through parenting courses and medical reports.
The site reports that the child's parents cannot care for the nine-year-old and the mother has mental health difficulties.
Despite this and testimonies from the boy's GP, principal and a paediatrician who treated the child, he was still removed from his paternal grandparents' care.
Deputy McGrath said the elderly couple has been left "traumatised and utterly bewildered" at the development, which "shocked the local tight-knit community to its core".
He added: "This case is one the saddest that has ever crossed my desk in all my many years as a public representative.
"It represents a level of a state overreach into the heart of a loving family that cannot be overestimated.
"The grandparents, in their mid-60s, had made this little nine-year-old boy the heart and soul of their world since he came into their care as a four-year-old.
"He was cherished, well educated, well looked after; all of which was testified to by Consultants, his Principal, his local GP.
"Yet none of this was good enough for Tusla who in its infinite wisdom decided it was best to take the child from its distraught grandparents and place him in another country without any effective means of communication.
"This kind of action is a throwback to the kind of Ireland we all thought we were in the process of leaving behind.
"It is absolutely outrageous the way Tusla have treated this honest hard working family.
"To make matters worse Tusla have now informed us that they will be investigating themselves after a catalogue of poor case handling was criticised by the grandparents.
"I will be demanding that Minister Zappone remove this function from Tusla given how obviously inappropriate it is for a state agency to investigate its own actions.
"This family and this child need swift intervention that is guided by common sense and compassion, not by an incomprehensible adherence to bureaucratic box ticking exercises on Tusla’s part."

UK Lord Justice wanted age of consent lowered to the age of 4

Lord Justice Fulford was named last year as an adviser to the QueenHe was a key backer of the notorious Paedophile Information Exchange Police suspect the group of abusing children on an ‘industrial scale’He is revealed as a founder member of campaign to defend PIEAt the time it was calling for the age of consent to be lowered to just fourI clashed with Paedophile Information Exchange (PIE) global leaders at the Wales conference in Swansea in 1977. Tom O’Carroll is still accepted and active on a sexnet chat group of experts in “sexology” although he writes openly as a pedophile. And the scholarly organizers of the Swansea conference at the University were part of his efforts. Below a summary of my intro to him in my book, Stolen Honor, Stolen Innocence, 2013. This academic pedophile lobby has continued and grown, training second generation and third generation supporters as “scholars” for pedophile equality and “rights.” In 1981 I realized they were global.

Jews in Israel call for genocide of Palestinians in a massive rally ignored by the media

The West’s media—under orders to censor any news of Jewish supremacism—has refused to publicise this week’s massive hate rally attended by thousands of Jews in Tel Aviv which called for all Arabs to be killed. The Western media’s blackout is in marked contrast to their blanket coverage of the tiniest example of what it calls “white racism.” The Tel Aviv rally—organized to support an Israeli soldier who murdered a wounded Palestinian by shooting him in the head as the victim lay on his back—was marked by chants and banners calling for mass murder. The rally took place on Tuesday evening, April 19, in Tel Aviv’s Yitzhak Rabin Square, and the many thousands of Jews in the crowd were, according to reports in the Israeli media, baying for blood.
One Jewish reporter, Dan Cohen, tweeted that many in the crowd chanted, “Death to Arabs,” a frequently heard rallying cry at anti-Palestinian demonstrations. Ahmed Tibi, a Palestinian lawmaker in Israel’s parliament, posted an image of a sign displayed …

The elite's use young children's blood to live longer and so do I says Paypal Billionaire

Billionaire PayPal founder Peter Thiel said that he believes transfusions of blood from young people can reverse his ageing process and allow him to live a vastly extended lifespan.



In an interview with Inc.com’s Jeff Bercovici, Thiel said that the practice — known as parabiosis — is the closest modern science has come to creating an anti-aging panacea.

Thiel — a hedge funder who acted as a delegate for Donald Trump and spoke at the 2016 Republican National Convention — is reportedly obsessed with defying death and extending the human lifespan. He has injected funds into startups that are experimenting with ways to forestall the body’s inevitable decline and death.

“I’m looking into parabiosis stuff,” Thiel told Bercovici, “where they [injected] the young blood into older mice and they found that had a massive rejuvenating effect. … I think there are a lot of these things that have been strangely underexplored.”

Parabiosis experiments began in the 1950s with crude exercises in which rats …
