This makes me want to throw up my lunch. A baby is born to a New Hampshire couple only to be taken into state custody, without their knowledge! The nurse said the pediatrician wanted to take a look at the baby, but when the father tried to follow them out into the hall he found several state workers meeting the nurse and baby, and officers confronted the father saying they would be watching his every move and they were taking the baby into custody and forcing the parents to leave the hospital.
Their crime? Participating in an online forum called Oath Keepers, which is a group of non-violent authority figures who are choosing not to abide by unconstitutional laws.
Here’s a clip from Prison Planet’s report:
The affidavit in support of the decision to take the child, which has been verified by Oath Keepers, states, “The Division became aware and confirmed that Mr. Irish associated with a militia known as the Oath Keepers,” confirming that political beliefs were, amongst other reasons, one of the primary factors behind the snatching of the baby.
Even if the additional reasons cited in the affidavit, which are unproven at this time, could be considered sufficient reason for the state to take the baby, the fact that political affiliations were even mentioned is a frightening indictment of how far the government’s war on Americans who dissent against authority has advanced.
“Regardless of the other allegations, it is utterly unconstitutional for government agencies to list Mr. Irish’s association with Oath Keepers in an affidavit in support of a child abuse order to remove his daughter from his custody.” writes Oath Keepers founder Stewart Rhodes. “Talk about chilling speech! If this is allowed to continue, it will chill the speech of not just Mr. Irish, but all Oath Keepers and it will serve as the camel under the tent for other associations being considered too risky for parents to dare. Thus, it serves to chill the speech of all of us, in any group we belong to that “officials” may not approve of. Don’t you dare associate with such and such group, or you could be on “the list” and then child protective services might come take your kids.”
This is absolutely outrageous!! Can you imagine having your newborn baby taken away from you literally right after s/he was born and you had no idea anyone was even watching you? All because of an agenda the government has against “domestic terrorists”, who might remove them from their office because they are not fulfilling their oath to protect the constitution. These slaves of the government are really asking for it, and one of these days it won’t be peaceful protestors like the Tea Party and Oath Keepers who are telling the government to answer for it’s actions, it will be some guy with violent tendencies who loses it on them. Perhaps then, babies will be safe in their parents arms?
Update: I have done more research on this case and found that Mr. Irish was falsely accused of concealing a firearm without a permit, when in reality it was his fiancee who owned the firearm, and she did have a permit to conceal it, and they were in the vehicle together when the police officer who was waiting at their home for them decided to arrest Mr. Irish and confiscate the firearm, they couldn’t even say he was alone with the gun in the trunk. This couple did NOTHING wrong.
