New California and Maryland Laws Violate 4th Amendment

‘THE BOTTOM LINE’
Posted March 13, 2018
States write laws to force homeschoolers to submit to warrantless home searches.
I hope, like me, you can see down the road to where this is going my friend. It just reinforces what I have been saying that the DeepState behind our state and Federal governments are totally trashing the U.S. and State Constitutions. The DeepState recognizes Constitutional law - unless they can find a reason not to. E.g. the 1st, 2nd, 4th 5th 6th 8th 9th 10th oh well…the entire Constitution is a risk.
In this excuse to attack the 4th and 5th Amendments, and force citizens to give into the pressures of forced State indoctrination of their children, state lawmakers are now pushing legislation that will force homeschooling families to subject themselves to warrantless searches, home visits, and a slew of regulations. As I said, the Constitution is recognized unless there is a reason not to…
Read the 4th and 5th Amendments, finish reading the article, then see for yourself if there is a Constitutional violation.
The Fourth Amendment: The right of the people to be secure in their persons, houses, papers, and effects, against unreasonable searches and seizures, shall not be violated, and no Warrants shall issue, but upon probable cause, supported by Oath or affirmation, and particularly describing the place to be searched, and the persons or things to be seized.
The Fifth Amendment: No person shall be held to answer for a capital, or otherwise infamous crime, unless on a presentment or indictment of a Grand Jury, except in cases arising in the land or naval forces, on in the Militia, when in actual service in time of War or public danger; nor shall any person be subject for the same offence to be twice put in jeopardy of life or limb; nor shall be compelled in any criminal case to be a witness against himself, nor be deprived of life, liberty, or property, without due process of law; nor shall private property be taken for public use, without just compensation.
Maryland — with the unchecked and overreaching power of the Child Protective Services CPS, lawmakers in California and Maryland have introduced bills that will allow the state to arbitrarily without notice intrude in the lives of innocent families, keeping tabs on them, force entry into their home without a warrant, and destroying their right to privacy guaranteed under the 4th Amendment. No probable cause here!
County Boards of Education – Home Instruction Program – Observation of Instruction and Reporting of Abuse and Neglect, lays out some fairly ominous requirements that will persecute otherwise entirely innocent families for doing nothing other than teaching their children at home.
These bills lay out the framework for forced home inspections in which state Gestapo agents will force the entry into a family’s home multiple times a year—unannounced—and observe and inspect the home. This is something we fought against in WWII my friend.
This bill would require parents to annually inform their county school boards of their homeschool child’s primary instructor and of the primary location where homeschooling is taking place each year. Furthermore, in order to legally homeschool in the state of Maryland, parents would be required to allow a representative of the county board to observe instruction at the family’s primary homeschooling location at least twice a year. Finally, this bill would require county school board employees who observe a family’s instruction and who believe a homeschool child has been subjected to abuse or neglect to report their suspicion to the proper authorities.
This bill, like the similar one proposed in the Nazi, Communist state of California last month, they say was a reaction to the horrific scene that unfolded in mainstream media in the case of David and Louise Turpin. The couple who is facing 12 counts of torture after police learned that their 13 children were severely malnourished, forced to stay chained to their beds, and living in horrific conditions, among other forms of torture that have been ongoing for several years.
The DeepState will look for any excuse to destroy the security of a free State. This my friend is what the 2nd Amendment was written for. “…being necessary to the security of a free state…”
Because the Turpin’s were homeschoolers, the state now assumes all homeschoolers are criminals. It’s the same Gestapo mentality that says that because a criminal with a gun, shot a bunch of children, therefore anyone with a gun is a criminal. Which as I said our 2nd Amendment rights are also protected unless there is a reason not to…
"I have a right to nothing which another has a right to take away." -- Thomas Jefferson to Uriah Forrest, 1787. Papers, 12:477.
Even though the problem of child abuse has nothing at all to do with homeschooling, lawmakers across the country are now using this moment to advance their agenda of tyranny by demonizing parents who wish to teach their children outside of the state institutions of indoctrination. Watch for this same type of tyranny in the name of safety in your state.
When asked why he proposed the bill, HB 1798’s conspirator, Delegate Frant Turner said it was in response to “recent news about homeschoolers,” indicating that he is also exploiting this tragedy to push for more government control and less Constitutional rights.
As TFTP reported last month, lawmakers in the state of California are now pushing for families who homeschool their children to be subject to involuntary home visits from state employees—treating those parents with the same oversight and involvement that they would give parents who have abused their children—just like Maryland wants to do.
The new regulations could consist of forced meetings with child protective services and other government agencies, which would leave the burden on the parents to prove to the government that they are fit to be parents who homeschool their children, according to the state’s guidelines.
The audacity of the state to require that your children be inspected by them to prove that you are not guilty of child abuse is stunning and speaks to the deterioration of our constitutional right in this cast the 4th and 5th Amendments. One is now guilty until proven innocent.
As the Washington Examiner reported, if this increase in government overreach becomes law, it would “reduce the valid legal option of homeschooling from a fundamental parental right, to direct the education and school choice for children, to compelled consent to government intrusion upon the sanctity and privacy of the home and school choice.”
Currently, only about 3.4% of children ages 5 – 17 are homeschooled in the United States even though, studies have shown that homeschooled children typically outperform their peers from both private and public schools.
Write your state legislators here, in Maryland and California and tell them to reject California Assembly Bill (AB) 2756 and in Maryland Assembly Bill HB 1798, and to begin obeying the Constitution and make laws supporting freedom instead of trying to destroy it.
THE BOTTOM LINE: Homeschooling allows for a child to maximize their potential to become creative, adaptive, free thinkers. This, in turn, creates people who are not conditioned to think within the limited confines of an archaic oligarchy and crumbling system, but who are capable of adapting and applying new thoughts, ideas, and solutions to any situation encountered.
The flexibility of being able to cater education to a particular learning style, as well as a child’s particular interests, enables valuable insight.
This insight and creativity, however, is a danger to the DeepState. If the state is unable to control, indoctrinate and brainwash the entire population into believing in a certain system, people begin questioning that system. When people question the system—instead of simply blaming it on the other party—the state loses its control. When the state loses its control, they lose their power, their ability to extract wealth from masses, and their support for spreading the empire of tyranny.
Independent Freethinkers are a danger to the DeepState tyranny, and whether or not the lawmakers in California and Maryland will admit it, violating the Constitutional rights of homeschoolers is not in the interest of public safety. It is in the interest of spreading despotism.
We would do well to take a look back and pay close attention to what a few people that developed and fought for our freedom said: And note that this was a time when the DeepState brainwashing had not yet taken control of the masses.
Abraham Lincoln once said, “The philosophy of the classroom in one generation will be the philosophy of government in the next.”
“If you want good security, go to prison, you will have everything you could want except freedom” – Dwight D. Eisenhower
“No legislative act, therefore, contrary to the Constitution, can be valid. To deny this would be to affirm that the deputy is greater than his principal; that the servant is above his master; that the representatives of the people are superior to the people themselves.”- Opinion by - John Jay, First chief justice US Supreme Court.
"The greatest tyrannies are always perpetrated in the name of the noblest causes." -- Thomas Paine
It is not the function of our government to keep the citizen from falling into error; it is the function of the citizen to keep the government from falling into error." -- U.S. Supreme Court in American Communications Association v. Douds
"They that can give up essential liberty to obtain a little temporary safety deserve neither liberty nor safety." -- Benjamin Franklin, Historical Review of Pennsylvania (1759)
