Texas Child Protective Services (CPS) forcibly removed a four-year-old boy from his home in June, and the family is desperately trying to get their son back from what they consider a state-sponsored kidnapping.
The horrifying video of the Soviet-style raid on the Pardo family to take their son Drake away from them can be seen here:
According to court documents, CPS claims that Drake’s mother Ashley Pardo is “exaggerating and lying about [her son’s] symptoms and conditions” and “demanding an unnecessary surgical procedure to place a G-tube.” The family had previously filed a complaint against the Children’s Medical Center alleging negligence after doctors refused to see Blake after he was taken to the facility.
“The affidavit says two different gastrointestinal doctors have advised against the procedure, yet the mother has been actively looking for a third GI doctor,” the Texas news outlet InForney points out.
The Pardo family has repeatedly been denied access to their children by the courts. In a recent hearing on Aug. 9, the CPS declared that “Ashley and Daniel Pardo had to make a complete admission of guilt before they can get their son back.”
Jeremy Newman, who works as the director of public policy for the Texas Home School Coalition, believes that the claims made against Ashley are false.
“According to Dr. Dakil’s uncontested testimony at the hearing, the family has only switched doctors one time,” Newman said to the Christian Post, referring to the doctor who has treated Blake since he was an infant.
“They switched from one doctor inside Children’s to another doctor inside the exact same office. The reason for this switch, which Dr. Dakil admitted she was not aware of the reason, is because the first doctor refused to visit Drake for several days while he was admitted to the hospital. The family fired him, switched to another doctor in the same office, and filed a formal complaint against the first doctor,” he added.
Newman also says that claims made by CPS misrepresent the concerns of a mother who wanted the best for her son that has been treated for “epilepsy, sleep apnea, immunodeficiency and fevers, autism, behavioral problems, cerebral palsy, dysautonomia, developmental delays and problems with feeding and swallowing.”
“She also testified that she wanted Drake to have a feeding study to determine whether he needed a feeding tube. She acknowledged in testimony that the only reason the family had declined the feeding study is that it is a 12-week in-patient study and they were unable to afford it,” Newman said.
“The family learned for the first time at the hearing that there was also an option for a local feeding study conducted by another facility. The family said they were happy to do this study but had never been told about it,” he added.
The Texas Home School Coalition claims that the boy was ripped from his family even though CPS had:
1. never seen or talked to the child;
2. not seen or talked to the parents;
3. not seen or talked to family members;
4. not seen or talked to neighbors;
5. not conducted a background investigation;
6. not attempted to resolve the issue without removal;
7. refused to disclose the allegations to the parents or to their lawyer;
8. misquoted and misrepresented a hospital doctor’s affidavit to obtain the court order and;
9. had no firsthand knowledge of any wrong doing by the parents;
Republican state senator Bob Hall of Edgewood is speaking out on behalf of the family, who was served a gag order by a judge on July 2. He believes the Pardo family is being punished because of a personal agenda.
“Doing so, in essence, showed the family’s attorney that she was from the government, she could do anything to that family that she wanted to do, when the attorney indicated he was going to take the case up the CPS chain of command,” Hall wrote in an op/ed. “Knowing that judges, for self-protection, almost always side with CPS was the only path to ensure that she got ‘a pelt for her belt.’”

California’s Liberal Political Elite Live in Overwhelmingly White Affluent Suburbs
Does their support for diversity stop at the front door?
As California’s major political and business leaders tout their supposed support for diversity, it appears that their commitment may end at their own front doors.
California is one of the most racially and ethnically diverse states in the country, with its population of over 39 million containing no majority demographic and containing a Hispanic plurality.
However, many of California’s major business and political leaders live in affluent, overwhelmingly white communities wholly unrepresentative of the state’s considerable diversity, which largely appear inaccessible to the state’s poor, working and middle-class through sky-high price barriers to entry and costs of living.
California Governor Gavin Newsom eschewed living in the historic Governor’s Mansion at the state capitol in Sacramento, instead opting to move into a luxurious mansion in Fair Oaks, California. Fair Oaks was gauged to have a whopping 85% majority of white residents in the 2010 survey, whereas the city containing the Governor’s Mansion Newsom declined to move into has demographics similar to that of the state of California as a whole.
Notably, the ultra-affluent gated community in which Nancy Pelosi lives was the only neighborhood in San Francisco historically restricted to whites only. Presidio Terrace, which consists of 36 large lots located on a single privately owned street, utilized a segregation-style racial covenant in its zoning code from its inception in 1906. It wasn’t until the 1948 Supreme Court case of Shelley v. Kramer that Presidio Terrace’s whites-only zoning laws were ruled unconstitutional.
Google oligarch Eric Schmidt, one of the wealthiest people in California with a net worth of over 14 billion dollars, counts a luxurious mansion in Atherton, California as one of his primary properties. Atherton is a San Mateo community known for having the highest per capita income for any city its size in America. Schmidt, who ran Google for ten years, is a corporate Democrat currently under consideration to run a technology task force in Joe Biden’s tentative administration. Atherton recorded an 80.5% majority white demographic in the 2010 census.
Schmidt is currently in the process of obtaining citizenship of the Republic of Cyprus, in a tax avoidance scheme that could alleviate him of the inconvenience of his American citizenship entirely.
Kamala Harris’s residential neighborhood of Brentwood contrasts sharply with the composition of Los Angeles, the city in which it’s located. Brentwood possesses a distinctly white majority demographic of 84%, perhaps most strikingly having only a 6.5% demographic of Latinos in one of the most heavily Hispanic cities in the United States. 2010 Census data indicated that Los Angeles had a white demographic of 49%, a figure that is likely to have decreased over the past ten years as longtime middle-class residents exit California.
There are some notable examples of Californian Big Tech oligarchs who live in communities that are inhabited nearly exclusively by Whites and Asians, a common phenomenon in high-tech Silicon Valley ‘company towns’ such as Palo Alto and Menlo Park. Mark Zuckerberg lives in Palo Alto, which is 64% White and 27% Asian, with Blacks forming a mere 2% and Hispanics 6% of the city’s residents respectively.
Google CEO Sundar Pichai lives in ultra-affluent Los Altos Hills, California, which contains the third wealthiest ZIP code in the United States. Los Altos Hills has a White population of 68% and an Asian demographic of 27%. A mere .5% of Los Altos Hills residents are Black, and 2.7% are Hispanic or Latino of any race.
As elite corporate progressives situated in California- which has tragically become one of the most economically unequal states in the country, and arguably the most economically disparate major jurisdictions in the entire western world- lecture the rest of the country on diversity and equality, it appears many of them are wholly unwilling to take on the challenge of living in an actual diverse community.
