First off, forgive me for even making a post about this during the Covid-19 crises while the State of California has, or is continuing to, confine people to their own homes or requiring people to wear masks to protect its residents. Obviously the State of California can pretty much do what it wants, including violating your liberty protected interests already decided by case law and the US Constitution itself. Your liberty protected interests go far beyond, "Life, Liberty, and Property" as stated in the 14th Amendment. For example, it is undisputed, that legal rights to your children are a liberty protected interest and I think this right to the "care, control and companionship" of your own child falls under all three categories, "Life, Liberty, and Property" combined. However the State of California regularly seizes emergency custody of children, then temporary custody of children, and too often, terminates the parents rights ("TPR") making the child a juvenile dependent of the State.
We are trying to prevent unwarranted governmental interference #PreventUGI for parents by requiring the State to grant parents jury trial rights; after the State takes emergency legal rights to their child but before a judge makes the child a temporary dependent of the State of California and grants temporary custodial rights of the child to the State. Jury trial rights in juvenile dependency courts will help to end #FalseAllegations quickly.
The State of California is required to give you due process rights (formal written laws) before it can take away your right to live, before it can take you into custody, and before it can take your custodial rights to your property from you (your house). In fact, in another blog we outline how the State of California gives you jury trial rights before your landlord can remove you from his/her rental. So what is "unwarranted governmental interference", or "UGI" in California? A recent interesting United States Supreme Court ("SCOTUS") case popped up regarding Tyson Timbs, a convicted drug dealer and a potential thief who resides in Indiana.
Indiana took temporary custody of Timbs's Land Rover when it took Timbs into custody in 2013. In early 2019, SCOTUS told Indiana to release its custody of the Land Rover back to Timbs. You can read about it here. Indiana figured it could clarify its formal written laws, subject to strict scrutiny and keep sole custody of the Land Rover. This year, even though the Land Rover is only 7 years old, Indiana sort of conceded to shared custody and returned the Land Rover to Timbs. Timbs will lose shared custody of the Land Rover if he fails to keep insurance on it or if he tries to transfers his share of custody of the Land Rover to anyone else, including his family members.
Bottom line, go ahead and waste your time and energy, as a parent, trying to be a "Sovereign Citizen" or fail to give your child a social security number or refuse to enter into any contracts you believe the State of California wants to hold with you so it won't be able to charge you with "breaching" them. Raise Your Rights' concern is for children brought into California's family or juvenile dependency courts and not about Sovereign Citizens in general. These false ideas and promotions have repeatedly been shown not to hold up in court, ever. If the State of California seizes emergency rights to your child, it has repeatedly given him/her a permanent federal social security number. If the State of California finds out you didn't pay federal taxes (so you probably didn't pay state taxes either) both the IRS and FTB will come after you successfully. If you don't work or pay taxes, then most likely you also don't receive direct non-taxable governmental assistance. I am not an accountant but I am pretty sure your unemployment checks this year are also subject to tax, unless they weren't high enough in total to reach the taxable income threshold. In regards to your child? They need security, safety, food, shelter, etc. to thrive and they are not resilient to harsh living conditions which is the subject of another blog. They also need divorcing parents to #ResolveConflictQuickly.
