Californian Senator Richard Pan pushing to outlaw parental rights in all medical decisions

(NaturalNews) California is no stranger to controversy. In February of 2016, Natural Newsreported on The Golden State’s highly debatable approach to enforcing vaccination. California’s strict mandatory vaccination lawshave been a subject of contention for quite some time now, and it seems that the state is only seeking to grow its power over parents and families.

A new bill, SB-18, has been introduced by Senator Richard Pan, seeking to give the government the right to seize children from their parents if they are making medical decisions that the state feels are “not in the child’s best interests.” (RELATED: Read more news about evil bureaucrats at

Dr. Pan, of course, was also behind the state’s current mandatory vaccination bill, SB-277. When taking both bills into consideration, one cannot help but wonder if they will be targeting parents who have unvaccinated children, or perhaps those who homeschool their kids. One thing is clear: The state of California is all but trying to outlaw dissent.

SB-18 is still in its early stages and will not be enacted until 2022, if it somehow manages to pass. While that may seem far off in the future, it is only a few short years away.

One of the more puzzling aspects of SB-18 is its blatant acknowledgement of existing laws to protect children. The bill itself acknowledges that there are already laws to provide for the “care and welfare of children and youth in various contexts, including, but not limited to, child welfare services, foster care, health care, nutrition, homeless assistance, and education.”

In what some might call rather unsettling language, the bill declares that the state of California will be seeking to “achieve specified goals to create an optimal environment” for the children’s “healthy development.”

Critics say that the language of the bill is really what is most concerning. Under the guise of doing what is best for the child, Section 1(a) of Pan’s bill outlines a seven-point list of rights children ought to have:

(1) The right to parents, guardians, or caregivers who act in their best interest.
(2) The right to form healthy attachments with adults responsible for their care and well-being.
(3) The right to live in a safe and healthy environment.
(4) The right to social and emotional well-being.
(5) The right to opportunities to attain optimal cognitive, physical, and social development.
(6) The right to appropriate, quality education and life skills leading to self-sufficiency in adulthood.
(7) The right to appropriate, quality health care.

This list may seem innocuous, but it is also incredibly vague. These are all basic things that children should indeed have. The problem is that the state is also seeking to grant itself the right to determine what does and does not meet its own arbitrary standards.

The bill is also seeking “to establish a comprehensive framework that governs the rights of all children and youth in California, outlines the research-based essential needs of California’s children, and establishes standards relating to the health, safety, well-being, early childhood and educational opportunities, and familial supports necessary for all children to succeed.”

The vagueness of this bill is truly what is most concerning, as it almost doesn’t really say anything at all – leaving plenty of room to the imagination of whoever is deigned to enforce it. For example, the rights to “appropriate, quality education” and “social development” could be said to be infringed upon by homeschooling your child. Not vaccinating your kid, of course, is also likely to be considered a violation of several of these rights. (Read more about government assaults on your liberty at

As Modern Alternative Health notes, the bill could also pave the way for more new laws, programs, taxes and other such government tripe.

Allowing a small group of people to decide what is “best” for the rest of population is never a good idea – especially when they all but give themselves carte blanche to do so. One must also wonder, how will any independent thought survive under such circumstances?


Trump Tweetstorm Promises Full Hacking Report In 90 Days, Slams “Guilty As Hell” Hillary


As President Obama drops ever more chaos into the path of Donald Trump’s presidency with everything from troop movements to trade disputes, it appears the president-elect had a lot to get off his chest this morning.

It began with some confident crowing about his cabinet appointments and their hearings…

All of my Cabinet nominee are looking good and doing a great job. I want them to be themselves and express their own thoughts, not mine!

But then quickly snapped to the “intelligence” lies and fake news of the media. As The Hill reports, President-elect Donald Trump struck a new blow in his war of words with the intelligence community on Friday, tweeting that the IC “probably” leaked new reports against him “even knowing there is no proof.”

On Tuesday, CNN reported that Trump had been briefed by top intelligence officials that Russia had a dossier on compromising information about him. Hours later, Buzzfeed published the 35-page unverified dossier, which contains multiple known errors.


Unconfirmed reports emerged Thursday that former MI6 agent Christopher Steele had initially begun compiling the dossier at the behest of former Florida governor and Trump GOP primary opponent Jeb Bush, reports Bush’s team strongly denied.

Promising a full report within 90 days……

It now turns out that the phony allegations against me were put together by my political opponents and a failed spy afraid of being sued….

Totally made up facts by sleazebag political operatives, both Democrats and Republicans – FAKE NEWS! Russia says nothing exists. Probably…


released by “Intelligence” even knowing there is no proof, and never will be. My people will have a full report on hacking within 90 days!


Trump then pivoted to “Guilty as hell” Hillary Clinton (and the forthcoming probe on FBI behavior)…

What are Hillary Clinton’s people complaining about with respect to the F.B.I. Based on the information they had she should never…..

have been allowed to run – guilty as hell. They were VERY nice to her. She lost because she campaigned in the wrong states – no enthusiasm!

Ending with a promise many look forward to…

How’s that for a Friday morning?

I guess we shouldn’t be surprised that the worst president ever is exiting the WH in the most pitiful, impotent and petty way possible.  Everything short of saying “apres moi, le deluge.”

Do your worst, Obama, you petty, vindictive little man.  You had the chance to do great things but you decided instead to defile and cheapen the office of the President.  You could have done so much better but you couldn’t rise above your “community disorganizer” roots nor your own narcissism.

THAT, above all, will be your legacy.

I don’t recall seeing such an onslaught of anti Russia propaganda the likes which we have seen over the last couple of months.  So the question is where is it coming from?, Which group is trying desperately to cling on to relevance?  Who benefits from this?

This is a very powerful power-play by very powerful groups.  The loser will not go quietly into the night.  But the real losers will be the average Joe on the street.

What happened to the dude with the undercover video camera who infiltrated the DNC and collected direct evidence of plotting to disrupt the electoral process.

This dude was a US citizen.

Some folks lost their jobs as a result of the video revelations.

The DNC and the HRC campaign were clearly involved in acts undermining the democratic process including the creation of fake protest groups and staged fights at Trump rallies.

Where is the outrage over these findings?

When you continuosly defend yourself from allegations … it eludes to the liklihood of them being true Donny. Take your meds sweetie – you’re appearing unhinged

“Probably released by “Intelligence” even knowing there is no proof, and never will be”

If you know anything about detecting deceptive statements, you know that innocent people tend to make statements denying the conduct at issue.  Deceptive people tend to talk about whether or not there is any proof.  This is not definitive of course, but it is highly indicative.

Tulsi Gabbard on Tucker Carlson last night probably sending shivers through the NeoCon halls of DC and Langley. Be interesting to see if her bill gets through, and it will be an education to see who votes against it from a “lack of moral compass” perspective (other than McShitstain and Graham if it makes it to the Senate).

This lady is about the only ray of sunshine the Demoncrats have going forward.

Suggestion for President Trump:

Instruct the 17 Flavor Variety Pack® US intelligence community to deliver two versions of the report they recently delivered to Obama regarding “Russian hacking” of the election.

Version one should be written in the same sensationalist manner as the one they wrote for Obama, but with the exact opposite slant.

Version two should be written with absolutely zero political bias and, devoid of “feelings” or “hunches”, based solely on facts which can be confirmed. For this version, your team should exclude any involvement by top- and mid-level IC management and work directly with the intelligence analysts. This will help to prevent the kind of cooked analysis from the days of George Tenet’s CIA when Emperor Cheney dictated the results and then told Tenet to “make it so”.

Release both versions to the public (sensitive classified info redacted) and let us see the difference between objective intelligence analysis and cherry-picked made-to-order dramatizations.

I think DT just had enough with the Clinton’s gang and its plutocratic camarilla, he tried to pacify the situation but they continued jumping at his throat like rabid dogs.

Tulsi Gabbard (Progressive Democrat):

>In 2013 Gabbard opposed the Obama administration’s proposed [demanded by Hillary] military strikes in Syria, arguing that intervention in Syria would go against America’s national security, international credibility, economic interest, and moral center.

>Gabbard was one of three members of Congress to vote against House resolution 121, a condemnation of the government of Syria and “other parties to the conflict” for war crimes and crimes against humanity, explaining that “this is a War Bill—a thinly veiled attempt to use the rationale of ‘humanitarianism’ as a justification for overthrowing the Syrian government”

> In November 2016 she met with United States president-elect Donald Trump to enlist his support to stop the United States’ “illegal war to overthrow the Syrian government”

>On December 8, 2016, Gabbard introduced the Stop Arming Terrorists Act to prevent the U.S. government from sponsoring international terrorist groups through funding and the provision of armaments, intelligence, and training.

I wonder if she believes Obama and Hillary are War Criminals…500,000+ dead in Syria alone…

If the Democrats wanted to elect the First Woman President, they should have nominated Gabbard; never heard of her before today and 5 minutes of “research” has me liking her already.

How Globalists Predict Your Behavior


Brandon Smith
January 11, 2017

The globalists seem to have an overarching obsession with data collection. As we have seen with revelations from multiple government whistle-blowers, the establishment spends most of its time, energy and manpower collecting information not just on known threats to their supremacy, but information on EVERYONE through FISA-based surveillance protocols. This is because the establishment sees every individual as a potential threat.

Thus, the system, without warrant, is programmed to collate data from everywhere, not necessarily to be analyzed on the spot, but to be analyzed later in the event that a specific person rises to a level that poses legitimate harm to the globalist power structure.

There was a time not long ago when this notion was considered “conspiracy theory” by the mainstream, but with multiple exposures from Wikileaks to Edward Snowden it is now common knowledge that the government (and the globalists)…
