The Scandal of Norway’s Child Protection Services

It was a winter’s day, some years ago, when two child welfare specialists – a female psychologist and a male psychiatrist – knocked on the door of a small modern wooden house on the edge of the Norwegian capital, Oslo.

A lively little girl opened the door and greeted the strangers warmly.

But the girl’s mother, Cecilie – who understood the purpose of their visit – was much less pleased to see them.

“I was very scared. I didn’t want them in my house in the first place,” she says, remembering that day.

“I was really nervous that they will find something wrong. I know this is how the Child Protection Services take away children.”

The experts had been appointed to write a report for a family court hearing which would decide the little girl’s future.

Their visit followed years of concern by the Child Protection Service that Cecilie – a single mother – wasn’t looking after her daughter properly, and had rejected offers of help.

That day, she was right to be nervous.

The experts were highly critical of what they observed at her home.

They wrote in their report that “there was no natural flow to the interaction” between mother and daughter.

They said Cecilie struggled to keep the house in order. And they commented on other details that Cecilie believes they misinterpreted.

“Everything is twisted in a negative way,” she says.

“This was not so long after Christmas, and in the local store I had found some gingerbread which they were selling really cheap, for one Norwegian krone. So I bought it just for fun, so that my daughter and I could make some gingerbread men together as an activity.

“But apparently they thought my financial situation was very bad, because I had bought it after Christmas… How can you say a person is poor just because they buy cheap gingerbread?”

“When I saw the report, I was so devastated. It was just all this negativity – negative, negative, negative. There was nothing positive at all.”

The experts’ report – based on information from many health and childcare professionals as well as their own observations – concluded that the little girl’s “development would be limited” if she remained with her mother.

The report said: “This is because the mother does not recognise her daughter’s basic needs and does not perceive the mental harm she may have suffered” while in her mother’s care.

Since then, Cecilie – a lean, anxious-looking, blonde woman now in her 50s – has only seen her daughter seven times.

“I have not been able to follow her development,” she says. “I just lost my daughter’s childhood. I don’t expect really to see her until she’s an adult.”

The recommendation to put the girl into long-term foster care was approved at Oslo District Court. The report’s co-authors attended as witnesses.

Fast forward to April this year, and one of those two experts – the male psychiatrist – reappeared in the same courthouse.

This time, though, he wasn’t in the witness stand.

He was in the dock.

He was sentenced to 22 months in jail – after admitting he had downloaded nearly 200,000 images, and more than 12,000 videos, showing the sexual abuse or sexualisation of children.

The court heard that some appeared to show infants being raped.

Norwegian police were initially tipped off that the man was downloading illegal child abuse images in 2015.

But it wasn’t until early 2017 – a year and a half later – that they investigated and then arrested him.

Are Pharma Companies Drug Dealers?

“Recently, a series of whistleblower lawsuits revealed shocking allegations about just how far pharmaceutical sales reps were willing to go to pressure doctors to prescribe their medications, with the apparent full encouragement of their employer, the pharma company Insys. As reported by the Daily Caller, these sales representatives were pushed to sexually entice, and sometimes even have actual sex with doctors in order to gain their cooperation. They were encouraged to fete the doctors with trips to fancy restaurants, shooting ranges and, naturally, strip clubs.”

The Elephant in the Room

Why isn’t anyone talking about the link between psychiatric medications and mass shootings?

Read Ethan Huff’s article, published at Natural News.

Big Pharma Paid Millions in Secret Settlements After Antidepressants Linked to Mass Murder

I don’t want this blog to focus exclusively on the mass shooting deaths caused by Big Pharma’s peddling of antidepressants.  The truth is, that while the numbers are horrific, they are only the tip of the iceberg.  The mass shootings are the peak of derangement caused by these drugs.  Millions more just pass their days in confusion and inner torment; their dreams unattainable, their hopes squashed, their lives ruined.

It does remain a probability though that it is the shooting deaths that stand the best chance of destroying Big Pharma’s business model of money for madness.  It is these that get the media’s attention.  While the media are hopelessly compromised by the advertising dollars received from Big Pharma, it seems inconceivable that they can abet the cover-up indefinitely.  All it takes is one honest editor.

There is definitely pressure building.  The following are well worth reading.  The second link is contained within the first, but just in case you miss it, I have separated it out.

Antidepressants Okay?

“We were told last week that researchers had ‘the final answer to the long-lasting controversy about whether antidepressants work for major depression’. I very much doubt it. Not only did the study (of old research, much of it paid for by the drug companies themselves) show very limited success for these pills. We are only just beginning to scrape the surface of what I suspect may be one of the biggest drug scandals of all time. If anyone insists to you that all is well, ask them this: have they had access to the drug companies’ own full testing records?”
