Received here only a few days ago…

“Hi Chris, do you remember me? I am Aníbal Rosales, from your article “Nicaraguan Patriots Visit Hot Springs” in October 2009. It is very sad what Nicaragua is living now, what in 2009 seemed like a distant future has arrived. Ortega took all the powers of the state, the presidency, the supreme court of justice, the electoral power and the assembly, he completed his project of dictatorship. Now he is killing his own people, for having raised us to protest against him, since last April 18, more than 350 people have died, there are more than 500 unjustly arrested, many disappeared and many people fleeing in Costa Rica and others living hidden in safe houses, so that the government does not kill them. We have a real humanitarian crisis, there are thousands of people who need shelter, food and medicine. If you can, tell this story to our friends in Hot Springs.”

After searching the internet for news of this situation, I’ve found that Anibal is not exaggerating. It is very sad news, indeed. The Nicaraguan Patriots who visited Hot Springs were, at the time, working to reverse the corrupt government of Nicaraguan President Daniel Ortega. They came here to get ideas on how to do just that. It is one of the highlights of my 23 years in Hot Springs.

From the several news sources that I’ve read, the Catholic Churches are being targeted in particular and, of course, anyone who protests the government policies. Anyone who wishes to see the article Anibal is referring to may see it here:

The article describes corruption that these brave men were dealing with at the time. It was bad then, but as Anibal has noted, things have deteriorated substantially.

Please pray for our friends in Nicaragua.

It has been four days since we demonstrated in Hot Springs and around the world. There are signs that the political leaders in Norway have taken note. Will any a major change take place in the cruel Barnevernet? We wait to see.

I would like to thank Josh Mogovan for filming our event. I also want to thank all of those from the Betania Romanian Church who offered their time, talents, and resources to help make this event possible.

WEEKLY WRAP-UP FOR 4-16-2016

April 17, 2016

There were 12 posts added to this blog this week. Two-thirds of the posts have to do with a corrupt system called the Barnevernet, the Norwegian version of our Child Protective Services. I hope you are interested in the subject. If so, please check out “RECENT POSTS” at the right. Also posted are two messages from pastors and one from Greg Hunter whose knowledgeable guest talked about the Middle East. Finally, there is THE COMPETITIVENESS OF MANKIND. My friend Manny called it a: “Cute (short) flick with a point.”

I was fortunate to teach in Garland County Schools and even got a day in at National Park Community College. Classes there include students from many high schools in the area. I taught the criminal justice class.

People have some great educational opportunities in the Hot Springs community.

I hope that all have a wonderful week in the Lord.

Hot Springs Protest Makes the News

April 16, 2016

Brian Smoke of the Arkansas Herald put this together. He happened to be passing by, saw our protest, and brought out his camera. I think he’s done an outstanding job here. Please leave comments telling him that you appreciate that he covered this protest.

STOP BARNEVERNET

April 13, 2016

Over the past few weeks, blog posts about Saturday’s Worldwide protest have continued to multiply. My new friend, Octavian Curpas, put this up on his You Tube channel. Today, many of my blogging friends posted items about the protest. I have already communicated the Hot Springs event here. I have no idea how many will show up. There might be 10. There might be 50. The number doesn’t matter to me as the worldwide demonstration will have plenty of people. I thought we should be represented.

I hope you can show up at a local demonstration near you.

Here are Jitka Fialova’s comments:

Anti-Norwegian CPS message by Jitka Fialová from Czech Republic

With Every day that passes more incriminating evidence piles up against Barnevernet. Here is an argumentative discourse by Mrs. Jitka Fialová from Czech Republic, one of the administrators of the page: “Norway, give us back the children you stole”. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=pWCSC2obqQY (The video above)

“I am Jitka Fialová, a mother of three and one of admins on the page Norway, give us back the children you stole. I joined the stop barnevernet movement about a year ago when I was informed about the story of Eva Michalaková. In this case, her 2 children were taken by Barnevernet after false accusations and separated not only from their mother and father but also from all other relatives, their language, their culture and from each other. I found out, that Children’s rights in Norway are not valued like I would expect in this reportedly most democratic country in the world. An arrested criminal has far better legal protection than small children who are being taken away from their families without any provocation and placed with total strangers. Criminals can be held only a few hours in custody to be evaluated by an experienced police lawyer. A small acutely replaced child may have to wait several months for a careful evaluation of whether the conditions for snatching him or her were met! With my engagement in this issue I want to prove that an Eastern country like the Czech Republic can be more civilized than Norway because we do care about our families. So please join demonstrations around the world on April 16th to stop Barnevernet.

My friends in Norway, please go to Oslo, Stryn, Bergen or any other city where a protest is scheduled to join the fight against Barnevernet!”.
