Nancy Schaefer (Georgia Senator 2004-2008) spoke on "Child Protective Service" (CPS) Corruption at the 2008 Eagle Forum Conference (the Eagle Council XXXVII Reports from State Legislators) in Washington, D.C. on September 26th, 2008.

Thank you dear Phyllis, and I thank you to all of you.
I have served in the Georgia State Senate for four years, one of my greatest pleasures, other than my sonogram bill, was getting the resolution passed to stop the North American Union.


However, for four years, I’ve been confronted with families struggling to remove their children from the clutches of Child Protective Services.

I wrote a scathing report last year, on the corruption in Child Protective Services, and an update, and copies are out on the table. During the last session of the Georgia General Assembly I introduced Senate Bill 415 relating to juvenile proceedings, and copies of that bill are attached to the report on the tables.

It called the bill 415 called for the time allotted for the department of human resources to provide emergency care to a child without a court order to be reduced from seven days to 72 hours. It required a court order to enter the residence of a parent or guardian to seize a child. It called for family court to be open to the public, confidentiality and secrecy and family court protects the wrong people.

It provided that the immunity in the system shall not extend to the seizures of children that are found to be in violation, nor to the administration of medication to a child over the objection of the parent or custodian, and it provided the state from applying for obtaining, receiving or accepting adoption incentive payments under the federal adoption and safe families act of 1997.

The department of child protective has become a protected empire built on taking children and separating families. This is not to say that there are not those children who do need to be removed from wretched situations and need protection, however, my report is concerned with the children and parents caught up in legal kidnapping. Having worked with probably 300 cases statewide and hundreds and hundreds across the country and in nearly every state, I’m convinced there is no accountability in Child Protective Services. I’ve come to several conclusions, two or three are, one, that poor parents, not always, but often times, are targeted to lose their children because they do not have the wherewithal to hire an attorney and fight the system.

The case workers and social workers are very often guilty of fraud, they withhold and destroy evidence, they fabricate evidence, and they seek to terminate parental rights unnecessarily.

That the separation of families and the snatching of children is growing as the business grows, because state and local governments have grown accustomed to having these taxpayer dollars to balance their ever-growing budgets. That the bureaucracy is huge, look at who is getting paid, state employees, attorneys, courts investigators, guardian ad litem, court personnel and judges, there are psychologists, therapists, psychiatrists, counselors, foster parents, adoptive parents and on and on. All are looking to the children in state custody to provide job security.

That the adoption and safe families act set in motion first in 1974 by Walter Mondell, and later in 1997 by President Bill Clinton, offered cash bonuses to the states for every child they adopted out of foster care. In order to receive the adoption incentive bonuses, local child protective services would need more children, they must have merchandise, that sells, and they must have plenty so the buyer can choose.

Some counties often offer four to six thousand dollars bonus for each child adopted out to strangers. And an additional two thousand for a special needs child. Employees work to keep the federal dollars flowing. But that is only the beginning; figure in the formula in which each is bonus is multiplied by the percentage that the state is managed to exceed its baseline adoption number.

Therefore, states and local communities work hard to reach their goals for increased numbers of adoptions for children in foster care. As you can see this program is offered from the very top and is run by health and human resources. This is why victims, in child protective services get no help from their legislators, explains why my bill senate 415 suffered such defeat in the judicial committee, and why I was cut off at every juncture and why I was defeated myself last month for my re-election by another republican.

The tax dollars are being used to keep this gigantic system afloat. Many grandparents have called me to get custody of their grandchildren, before being lost in the system. Grandparents who lose their grandchildren to strangers have lost their own flesh and blood. The children lose their family heritage, and grandparents and parents too, lose the connection of their heirs.

And that the national centre on child abuse and neglect in 1998 reported that six times more children died in foster care than in the general public. And that once removed to official “safety”, these children are more likely to suffer abuse and sexual molestation than the general population. Think what that number is today, ten years later. Here are a couple of recommendations on my list, called for an independent audit of all state child protective services and for a federal congressional hearing on child protective services.

Abolish, the federal and state financial incentives that have turned child protective services into a business that separates families for money. I have witnessed such injustice and harm brought to so many families that I’m not sure if reform of the system is even possible. The system cannot be trusted, it does not serve the people, it obliterates families and children, simply because it has the power to do so.

What I have said to you in these few minutes, is that we must confront the fraud in child protective services. Child protective services seizes children using the very system that is paid for by the taxpayer, who actually believes it is used to protect abused and neglected children. The bureaucracy of workers benefit financially by a system that converts children into cash, while destroying families and their lives. No child who emerges from the system can ever be sound or whole. Many disappear, and are never, are ever heard from again.

God will not stand for what is happening to our children and our families. His heart beats for these children, he will lift up the downtrodden. What is happening in America regarding child protective services is a criminal political phenomenon, and it must be brought to an end. Please join me in working to help set our children and our families free. To whom much is given, much is required. As you pray for this nation, pray for the upcoming election, and for our national financial crisis, please pray for our children and for our families. We all must press on and win this race for America. Thank you very much.

Thank you @[100003299313717:2048:Lori L Callies]!

I call BS on her and her husband's "suicide!" Look where we are today and it's spot on to what she was saying in fact it's even worse.

Lori L Callies
Melissa Diegel posted the link. I haven’t seen the transcript and it makes a difference reading it although I have listed to it before...worth saving just in case

Wayne Taylor
I believe it was a murder by social services or the courts or at least a part of the crooked system ill never buy the suicide crap.

Marilyn Halverson

This is astounding. I'm afraid for America

Ty Jackson
Add the legislators and State agencies and AG office profiting $Billions a year and providing thousands of their staff.

Melissa Whitman
It was defiantly Murder. She was all about helping the children and families and her husband had just went through and cleared of cancer… No way did they kill themselves

Star O'Dell
Let's get Nancy Schafer's petition going. This woman lost her title as well as her life speaking out to the people and standing up for the greater good of our youth. Don't let her truth die with her.

I need help writing a book about all of this. All proceeds of this book will be used to help protect the children from the system, demon traffickers, and to bring this truth the very front of the public eye.

I need information. Stories from all over the country.
I need to talk to people who have worked on the inside of CPS. Parents, natural and Foster Care parents who bear witness to the mind numbing failure of a system accountable to no one.

Workers and criminals in the trafficking industry willing to develop a conscience long enough to tell the story of how they use the system to from top to bottom to make kids disappear. Anything and everything the near to the very furthest ripples....together they form the moving target of a system guilty without a reasonable doubt of people. People that are selling our kids, destroying families, allowing it all to continue. I just need a little help from my friends.

Lori L Callies
well, not sure that you are exposing anything that is not 'known' by most. I have been a watchdog for many years now. I thought that with exposure in the public arena that would bring national outrage. I was mistaken. While exposure has helped to pressure legislators to address many of the trafficking issues within the 'welfare' systems of social programs, we will not receive national outrage. The reason is because the majority of religious organizations or churches are major sponsors and supporters of adoption, foster care and limited parental rights. They are the movers of the public in promotions of adoptions. Corporate entities support foster care and use the tax credits given to those who donate to foster care. Teachers are the primary mandated reporters who are sending the kids to juvie or foster care. Doctors and physicians are secondary to the educators in reporting children to be removed, some like Drake - without a medical visit or examination. Newborn pediatrics take babies who are flagged in the system as being involved with child welfare or a prior removal of a child. So when you take away this portion of the population; we are left with white collar workers and blue collar workers. Rich people often do adopt, big incentive to do so in tax credits. Blue collar workers are mostly just trying to keep their own kids. The legislators are full aware of the abuses of parents and the state abuse of the children. They may say they don't know, but in fact, they can not help but know. So that leave parents who are split. Some have gained income being foster parents, tax credits. So all in all, this small portion of the nation of parents who are poor or in domestic conflict, hold the burden of the crime and carry all the weight in trying to defend themselves against government branches which have all the money in the world to fight against them. The oppression of parental rights has hit a crescendo with churches, foster parent organizations, adoption organizations and their supporters all participating in the redistribution of poor and middle class children to the newest rising demand of gay community for babies. As for the research, I have done it for too long..however, I have years posted on my page of the articles...dozens of memes in 'your photos' of my page (with articles) ...but as for people who will volunteer their stories they are weary and worn and heard that all before ...documentaries to be made, books written, airing on national media ...but they never ever succeed. But good luck.

yeah, sure. @[100000703017876:2048:Randy Davis]

Michael Ascerno
@[100003299313717:2048:Lori L Callies] You are totally on point. Why the public is deaf to all this breaks my heart. Thank you.

Michael Ascerno
@[100003299313717:2048:Lori L Callies] how can I help in a real way?

Phillip John Tagaloni
Somebody needs to oversee cps. It's become the most corrupt part of the country. I

Phillip John Tagaloni
Thank you Lori for your hard work

Elizabeth Powell
They are still doing it since 1997 until now we are not going to have a future without children

Lori L Callies
@[100035162233539:2048:Elizabeth Powell] yep. I was watching a commercial the other day for 'CARE' and the script said 'CARE gave me a family in a city where I didn't have any'. It’s all about creating and supporting the job markets surrounding families that are 'working' and these job markets surviving on children and seniors who parents no longer have time for - since we are a nation of 'working' men and women. The script should have read "CARE gave me a stranger to help me because I have no family to do so"

Donna Moore Whiting
DFCS snatched my grandbaby with nothing more than a phone call full of made up BS. My daughter has done everything they said yet they still won't give her back. Termination of parental rights is tomorrow

Tayte Holley
@[100002228101396:2048:Donna Moore Whiting] I do not understand how their "go to" solution is termination of parental rights? They do this without due diligence; a constitutional right. They are not held accountable for exaggerating and/or fabricating petitions. I know more about CPS than I ever wanted to know. I learned about them because a family member went through this traumatic experience. Most of the case managers and/or CPS staff who remove children from their homes do not have the education needed to assess whether a child needs to be saved from their parents. All of them don't even bother with proving their case. I always thought claims made about CPS were made up, I am here to tell you they are not!

WV RidgeRider
And here we are, over a decade since she and her husband were murdered, (I'm sorry, but I'm not buying the homicide/suicide story.) and we still have not addressed this war on families and children. The time is NOW.

Odette M. Boyd
If this happening to my nephew and his wife right now, it could happen to you or someone in your family. Get educated now!

Unfortunately, our family is still living this nightmare, but we are hanging in there. We are just grateful that my great niece is safe, healthy and happy, and is with family. What’s crazy is that even though I passed my background check and got finger printed, the CPS case worker in Lawton, Oklahoma won’t allow me to babysit my great niece by myself without my sister or brother-in-law present, which is ridiculous as I’m currently raising two kids of my own, and as if I’m foolish enough to jeopardize her well-being and give them a reason to steal her “legally” from our family again. Thank God for allowing me to have a career where I can be flexible enough to be able to see my great niece every singe day, and I mean every single day since we got her back! evil (yup, lowercase “e”) thinks it will win, but what it doesn’t know, GOD is in charge! The truth always prevails… Always…

Please continue to pray for our family and those who did my nephew and his wife wrong. ??

The speech of former Senator Nancy Schaefer expose Child Protective Services. She lost her seat in the Senate AND BOTH SHE AND HER HUSBAND WERE MURDERED for exposing a 40 BILLION DOLLAR CORRUPT BUSINESS WITH UNPRECEDENTED POWER TO LEGALLY KIDNAP KIDS. Many years ago but very relevant today.

One by one, YouTube is taking down the videos of Nancy Schaefer exposing Child Protective Services (CPS) including her full speech.

It is now 8/21/22 and CPS is holding my disabled 15 yr old grandson as I type at this moment and there is no clear way to have these perpetrators cease their evil deeds.

Rhonda Thompson Mcconahy
David & Bonnie Lester ( You can find them on Telegram) Have helped many families get their children back from CPS) Bonnie is a lawyer and most people don’t know that CPS can only deal with you if YOU open a contract with them, meaning you sign something. They are a for profit company and need your permission to get involved in your life. If you don’t know the law you can’t defend yourself.

Ben Jammin
Are there any members of the senate or higher officials still alive fighting this? I need help against local government and cps ignoring abuse, domestic relations failing to report it, and cps putting it in the “round file” when our therapist reported it.
