Fascists: Because of a single false report to Child Protection Services (CPS), government officials illegally kidnapped the eleven children from their parents, and are now imposing their rule on the family.

The mother was in the hospital for three days being treated for pancreatitis. During that time period, her husband came to visit twice, bringing their youngest baby with him while leaving the remaining kids under the care of the oldest kids, 16, 14, and 12 years old, a perfectly reasonable thing to do. Members of a church the family formerly attended reported this to CPS. CPS then lied to a visiting judge, claiming the children had been left alone for three days, in order to get the court order to remove them. Moreover,

The order for the removal of the children was signed by visiting Judge Curt Henderson, while the sitting judge was on vacation. The sitting judge had reportedly previously denied the removal. According to protocols, the visiting judge reportedly should not have signed the emergency removal order without notifying the parents’ attorneys first. The apparent violation is believed to be the reason that the children were returned home.

In addition, they now have less than a week to find a new place to live.

They also have to find a house to move to, and move, by August 8, because a police officer who accompanied the social worker decided to phone the Rembis’ landlord and allegedly accused them of violating their lease. They received the eviction notice the day after the children were seized. When no lease violations were found, the landlord reportedly decided not to renew their lease. They still have to move. [emphasis mine]

Worse, even though the removal was illegal, CPS now has its claws in the family. If the parents do not do exactly as the government demands it will then steal the children again, and will be in a better position to make that removal stick.

Read the whole story. It will make you ill.

    Their former church wouldn’t happen to be Scientology would it?

    It’s always amazing how mean-spirited some people can be. That visiting judge, the social worker & cop all show their hatred for these folks. The only question is WHY? Did they do something to anyone to warrant this attack?

    I hope they can get some legal help and sue all of these hate-filled public servants, as well as the landlord!

    The only way to fight this kind of government overreach is to, somehow, punish any and all government officials so they will think twice before harming anyone.

    Let’s begin with all of the hate-filled democrats at the IRS!

    These people are fucking con artists. They’ve sued a lot of people. They’ve been in the media before begging for money.. It’s all a play to get money so they don’t have to get real jobs….

    They sued “a lot of people”? Looks like only the people that discriminated against them! They must be really good “con artists” if they were able to bluff their way through a federal lawsuit!!!! Where are they in the media “begging for money”?! They sound like solid hard-working people to take on raising 11 kids and they have their own business! Sounds like you’re the “fucking con artist”!!!!! Clown!!!!


    Yeah they have their own business OF RIPPING OFF PEOPLE BY SELLING THEM 1/2 OR IN SOME CASES SOMEONE’S ELSES PLACENTA UNKNOWINGLY. Con Artists. And if you view their video of the CPS “KIDNAPPING” THEIR KIDS… you can clearly see the Health Department needs a phone call. You can not use regular had dish washing techniques. They had no 3 compartment sink and many of their cabinets had looked wooden. They also had a dirty rag on the sink. Anyone working food service knows if you use a rag…..YOU DONT REUSE IT.

    Yeah, they steal placentas, sure they do. Sounds like a really lucrative business “stealing placentas”. They must make tons of money doing that! NOT! Who ever heard of such nonsense? There’s no video of any sink or rag?! WTH are you talking about?

    Just stumbled upon this while researching placenta preparation methods.

    I have known this family, the Rembis family for 9 years. Claire used to live in Michigan where she taught classes on placenta remedies. She has been featured in international publications on placenta encapsulation & she is even conducting a research study with world renowned scientist Mark Kristal who has been studying placentophagia in mammals since the 1970’s. Claire is known as an expert in this area & students actually travel to her from other states to train with her (if she will accept you as a student – it’s hard to get in with her). In fact, she doesn’t even charge the students that she takes on. I know of a family that Claire worked with for free. She enjoys giving back to the community & helping moms that are in a tight spot financially. I don’t know of any other placenta encapsulator that does this (i’m a doula & I know a lot of encapsulators).

    I know her husband and her incredible children. What struck me as so unusual the first time we met was how intelligent her children were. Whereas most of our groups kids’ were digging in the sand, 2 of her sons’ had metal detectors & were digging up metal, old toys, etc… Her sons were teaching the other children how to use the metal detector & they were showing them what the metals were in their science/geology book. Her kids were so happy & seemed so enthusiastic. They were so friendly & could hold intelligent conversations with both older children & the adults.

    I am saddened by what has happened to this precious family. It’s ironic in fact. That a family that is the face of what every family should aspire to be would face such persecution. Knowing Claire, William & their happy & fierce bunch, I am sure that they will not just thrive after this but will find a way to use it to make our world a better place. Just like they were already doing before this happened.
