The final week of my annual February birthday month fund-raising campaign for Behind the Black has begun. I continue to be overwhelmed by the outpouring of support, including numerous donations and a surge of new subscribers willing to commit to donating anywhere from $2 to $25 per month. Wow! The numbers are too many to send out individual thank you’s, so please forgive me for thanking you all with this one announcement.


The campaign however must go on, especially because I have added more regular features to my daily workload. In addition to my daily never-ending reporting on space exploration and science, my regular launch reports, my monthly sunspot updates, the regular cool images, and the evening pauses I post each evening, I have now added a daily weekday post I have entitled "Today's blacklisted American." Its goal is not to discuss policy or politics, but to note the endless examples occurring across the United States where some jack-booted thug or thugs think it is proper and acceptable to censor, blackball, cancel, and destroy an innocent American, merely because that American has expressed or holds an opinion or is of a race or religion that is no longer considered acceptable to the dominant leftist and bigoted culture. I want to make clear to every American that a large number of your fellow citizens no longer believe in the enlightened concept of freedom of speech or the idea of treating each person by the quality of their character.


Instead, they wish to shut you up, and oppress you if you happen to disagree with them or have the wrong skin color. This evil must be exposed.


To continue to do this into the foreseeable future however I need your support. If you are one of those millions who read Behind the Black each month, please consider donating or subscribing. Regular readers can support Behind The Black with a contribution via paypal:

Texas government officials kidnap 11 children illegally from parents

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.

Pioneer cover

From the press release: From the moment he is handed a possibility of making the first alien contact, Saunders Maxwell decides he will do it, even if doing so takes him through hell and back.

Unfortunately, that is exactly where that journey takes him.

The vision that Zimmerman paints of vibrant human colonies on the Moon, Mars, the asteroids, and beyond, indomitably fighting the harsh lifeless environment of space to build new societies, captures perfectly the emerging space race we see today.

He also captures in Pioneer the heart of the human spirit, willing to push forward no matter the odds, no matter the cost. It is that spirit that will make the exploration of the heavens possible, forever, into the never-ending future.

    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!

  • Some dude

    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….

  • Wise Guy

    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.

  • Wise Guy

    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.
