Last year, Big League Politics reported on the harrowing case of 4-year-old Drake Pardo who was kidnapped from his parents by the Child Protective Services (CPS) of Texas.
The video of the Soviet-style raid on the Pardo family can be seen here:
According to court documents, CPS claimed that Drake’s mother Ashley Pardo was “exaggerating and lying about [her son’s] symptoms and conditions” and “demanding an unnecessary surgical procedure to place a G-tube” in order to justify the kidnapping.
Ashley Pardo noted that her son had been treated for “epilepsy, sleep apnea, immunodeficiency and fevers, autism, behavioral problems, cerebral palsy, dysautonomia, developmental delays and problems with feeding and swallowing,” and she was simply looking out for what was best for her special needs son. For being an attentive mother, her child was ripped away from her.
The Texas Supreme Court ultimately did the right thing and ordered for Drake to be returned home and for CPS to drop the case. However, the vindictive CPS was not finished punishing the Pardo family for fighting back against their overreach.
Drake’s parents have been placed on the child abuse registry by CPS, which appears on their record when performing background checks. This could stop them from being able to obtain employment or even volunteer at their son’s school or church events.
CPS made this determination without any input from a judge. They have the ability to unilaterally place innocent families on their abuse registry and have placed the Pardos in a registry next to murderers and rapists out of what seems to be spite.
The Texas Home School Coalition (THSC) has been representing the Pardos and are gearing up for the next stage of their fight against CPS. The Pardos are filing an appeal to the Office of Consumer Relations (OCR), an office within CPS that reviews appeals filed against the agency.
“Last year, the Pardos suffered traumatic injustice at the hands of CPS. Drake spent four months in foster care and the Pardos fought six months in court before finally being cleared of all charges. Now, this innocent family is being punished anyway,” the THSC wrote in their press release about the case.
“CPS protects thousands of children every year who desperately need their assistance, but this type of abuse of innocent families causes the agency to become the source of harm to a child instead of that child’s protector,” they added.
They have started a petition and are attempting to spur a letter-writing campaign to public officials to get their attention on this injustice. They also want people to call Gov. Greg Abbott to get the issue on his radar and donate to the cause if they can.
CPS is one of the most evil government agencies in existence, regularly funneling children to abusers while punishing Christian parents who love their children. Big League Politics will continue to follow the Pardo family’s case as their appeal is processed.
Dr. Kelli Ward Reelected to a Second Term as Arizona Republican Party Chair
Ward received the full endorsement of President Trump.
Dr. Kelli Ward was re-elected to a second term as the chair of the Arizona Republican Party on Saturday, with precinct committeemen and women narrowly voting to keep Ward in place. The physician and former Arizona State Senator had the benefit of President Donald Trump’s endorsement.
Ward narrowly won reelection 51.5% to 48.5% in a runoff election, defeating challenger Sergio Arellano. Arellano congratulated Ward on her victory and pledged to work on behalf of Arizona Republicans for victory in the 2022 midterm election.
The last two election cycles have proven difficult for Arizona Republicans. The state’s Republican Party, once dominated by establishment operatives loyal to Senators John McCain and Jeff Flake, has faced renewed competition in a once-reliably red state with a rapidly changing demographic and population model. Ward took over from Jonathan Lines after the 2018 election.
Republican Martha McSally was appointed to a Senate seat by Governor Doug Ducey, even after losing the Senate 2018 election to Kyrsten Sinema. McSally was again defeated by Mark Kelly in the 2020 election, giving the state two Democratic Senators. Some have speculated that President Donald Trump would’ve secured a narrow victory in Arizona in the 2020 election with a winning Senate candidate, having run ahead of McSally by tens of thousands of votes. However, Republicans have maintained majorities in both chambers of the state legislature.
Ducey, Jeff Flake, and Cindy McCain were censured by Arizona Republican Party precinct captains at the yearly state meeting. The latter two campaigned vociferously for Democrat Joe Biden in the 2020 election, largely eschewing any loyalty to the Republican Party in favor of the establishment Democrat politician.
Arizona is now primed to conduct its third US Senate election in as many election cycles, with Republicans receiving a second chance to defeat Mark Kelly, who is finishing since-deceased Senator John McCain’s 2016 term. Republicans such as Andy Biggs of the House Freedom Caucus, Debbie Lesko, and Matt Salmon have been suggested as Senate candidates in an election where the party will have an opportunity to regain its footing in the purple state.
