A grieving father, robbed of his now deceased son by the notoriously unjust family court system, is being held in a Michigan jail for making social media posts about a judge he believes put his baby boy in harm’s way.
Jonathan Vanderhagen lost a custody battle for his son over two years ago, and his son died shortly after while in his mother’s custody. He had warned the court about the mother’s history of unstable behavior, but his pleas were ultimately ignored by the female judge and court referee.
Deborah Vanderhagen, Jonathan’s mother, is raising awareness about what she feels is a grave injustice that is being committed against her son.
“His lawyer said something is going to happen to this child. You need to get him away from the mother. There are too many red flags. And the judge said, oh that is in the past,” said Deborah Vanderhagen.
A police report filed following the untimely death of two-year-old Killian cleared his mother from liability in his death, but the Vanderhagen family disagrees strongly with that assessment. They feel that if Killian was taken care of properly, he may be alive today.
“He was so full of life,” Deborah Vanderhagen said while recalling memories of her beloved grandson. “I am trying not to cry.”
Jonathan Vanderhagen was vocal about his anguish on social media, assigning blame toward Judge Rachel Rancilio for granting sole custody of Killian to his mother. As a result, Rancilio complained about her safety, and the Macomb County Sheriff’s office charged Jonathan with malicious use of telecommunications services as a result.
“Dada back to digging and you best believe I’m gonna dig up all the skeletons in this court’s closet,” Jonathan wrote in one social media post that is being used against him by prosecutors.
He refused to be muzzled despite the court infringing upon his 1st Amendment rights. He went back on social media and continued to raise public awareness about corruption the court following his arrest.
For refusing to be silenced, a judge determined that Jonathan Vanderhagen violated his bond conditions. He was placed in jail on an astronomical half a million dollars bond, more than what is recommended in for rapists and murderers in many cases.
“He just wants justice. He don’t want to kill anybody. He don’t want anybody physically hurt. He wants them to acknowledge what they’ve done and get justice,” said Deborah Vanderhagen.
Jonathan’s attorney, Nicholas Somberg, believes that this is an egregious case of government overreach meant to silence a public opponent of judicial tyranny and scare away other potential whistle-blowers.
“This case is about the 1st Amendment and every person’s freedom to criticize and redress our grievances against the government in a public forum,” Somberg said to Big League Politics. “Mr. Vandenhagen is a father grieving the death of his son and speaking out against the system that failed both of them. He has never threatened anybody, has no criminal history, and is no flight risk.”
“A $500,000 cash bond is what you would expect for a murderer or rapist. I can’t think of any other reason to set such an astronomically high bond other than to intimidate and punish him for his speech. We are fighting this case not just for my client but to defend the constitutional rights of all of us,” Somberg added.
The jury trial against Jonathan Vanderhagen is scheduled to begin on September 13.
New York Times Pressures Encrypted Messaging App Telegram to Censor Right-Wing Voices
The Times is enforcing the global censorship agenda.
The New York Times is prodding Telegram to censor right-wing voices and hamper the platform’s amazing growth as mainstream social media platforms enact Draconian censorship.
The notorious fake news rag published an article on Tuesday imploring Telegram to do more to stop so-called “far-right conspiracy theorists, racists and violent insurrectionists” from using the app to communicate.
“There’s a real push and pull between the people that are using Telegram — and messengers like it — for good, and the people who are using them to undermine democracy,” said Nina Jankowicz, a disinformation analyst at the globalist Wilson Center.
“We see the same openness and sense of connection that is used by democratic activists opportunistically exploited by extremists,” she added.
Telegram founder Pavel Durov is already starting to cave to the establishment pressure, noting that the platform is profiling its right-wing user base and beginning to remove their controversial groups and channels from the app.
“For the last two weeks, the world has been following the events in the United States with concern,” Mr. Durov said in a post on his Telegram channel.
“While the US represents less than 2% of our user base, we at Telegram have also been watching the situation closely,” he added.
The Times pointed to groups like Hate Facts and Murder the Media, which offer alternative perspectives to information curated by the fake news, and the pro-western fraternal group, the Proud Boys, communicating on the platform to facilitate the demand for censorship.
“Welcome, newcomers, to the darkest part of the web,” Proud Boys leader Enrique Tarrio wrote in a Telegram message. “You can be banned for spamming and porn. Everything else is fair game.”
The Times compared right-wing organizers to ISIS militants, who have used Telegram to spread their propaganda in the past. Until recently, Durov has stood strong against voices urging him to shutter his platform.
“Telegram has never yielded to pressure from officials who wanted us to perform political censorship,” Durov wrote several years ago.
Durov, a Russian-born libertarian, has run into trouble with the Kremlin over Telegram, but the Russian government has come around on the platform and now regularly use it. Dmitry Polyanskiy, Russia’s deputy ambassador to the United Nations, even urged former President Donald Trump to get on the platform after he was banned by Big Tech.
“Seems like you don’t enjoy freedom of speech in your own country any more!” Mr. Polyanskiy wrote.
Although Trump is not currently on the platform, his son, Donald Trump Jr., has joined Telegram and already commands a massive following on the pro-free speech app.
“Big Tech Censorship is getting worse and if these Tyrants banned my father, the President of the United States, who won’t they ban?” Trump Jr. wrote in a tweet. “We need a place that I can connect to you guys that represents Free Speech. That’s why I joined Telegram.”
Telegram would be wise to ignore complaints from the fake news and other globalist forces agitating for the platform to enact a regime of Draconian censorship. The market is demanding freedom and privacy, and Telegram will lose their market share if Durov betrays his principles.
