Why Am I Running For Office?
I decided to run for office because of my personal experience in family courts, where I realized that my experience is not the exception to the rule, but unfortunately, a widespread problem in our nation today. From this experience I realized that there is a war being waged against the family from the unborn being sold by body parts to the best bidder, to children being trafficked by DCF (3 dollars for each dollar DCF spends in foster homes), to the youth in Juvenile courts being sold for cash as in the kids for cash scandal, to adults being unconstitutionally denied access to their children by family courts under the disguise of the “best interest of the children” just to increase state coffers (dollar for dollar federal match for child custody orders), to the elderly in Probate courts and Guardianship programs having their lives’ savings stolen by those who are supposed to protect them as this report and short film documentary present.
This attack on the family is leading to a mental health crisis and the breakdown of our society as evidenced by the outbreak of school shootings, violence, bullying, substance abuse, suicides, teenage pregnancies, divorces, spousal and child abuse, and a myriad of other societal issues destroying the very foundation of this nation, our families. Bottom line, the entire family is under attack, and what can we do to stop this? We need to vote for VoteFamily.Us candidates all over the USA. We must unite to defeat our common enemy, those actively working to destroy the American family, to make government officials accountable to the rule of law and the U.S. Constitution, to protect our children and families, and to restore the checks and balances of our democratic Republican form of government. Let’s show them that they must serve us, We the People, and not the other way around. THE AMERICAN PARENTS’ PLEDGE.
This Is How My Journey Started:
On June 6, 2012, DCF (Department of Children and Families) came to my house with yet another one of multiple false DCF calls alleging that my whole family, my parents, my brother, my new wife and I were mistreating our children. That afternoon, I called my children and read to them a Bible passage I had taught them, which was posted on my refrigerator and that I even used to teach Sunday school children, The Spiritual Armor of God found in Ephesians 6. To my surprise, my ex-wife that same night was delusional and called police and DCF around midnight alleging that I was scaring her and my children by telling them that an evil spirit would come and kill them all, and that she was scared that I was the evil spirit that would come and kill them (see denied Domestic Violence petition).
The accusation was so outlandishly foolish and laughable, especially in light of my ex’s history of Bipolar Disorder with psychotic features, Parental Alienation, and sociopathic behavior such as repeated false accusations, having an affair and absconding with my children in another country (see letter to ambassador to Nicaragua, and e-mail with State Department), and because my own son had denied this accusation in a legally obtained phone recording, that I thought that there was no way a Judge would even waste his/her time with it, especially since a Judge had already considered similar accusations before, and she had been caught on camera assaulting me, and then lying to police showing with bruises all over her body, and her own ex-boyfriend had confessed what she had done when she decided to alienate him from their yet not even born son and came back to the U.S. to have their child. Unfortunately, the original Judge had been changed, and I was completely wrong for I did not realize that I was dealing with the Miami-Dade Family Court system, and with some Judges that are flat out either incompetent or corrupt, and should have never been in Family Court in the first place.
Then, with at least 5 different false accusations with DCF, around the time the kids were to finish the school year, money-hungry ill-intentioned attorneys, Yvette B. Reyes, and Ana C. Morales (please click on their names to see my complaints and the answers from the Florida Bar), obtained illegal copies of a confidential Child Protection Team (CPT) report whose findings were later found to be completely inaccurate, and without properly notifying me to have the opportunity to have legal representation, filed a purported emergency motion to have my time-sharing suspended. (See also Suggestions To Improve DCF).
Despite the foolish accusation, that terrible day, July 20, 2012, Judge Mindy Glazer, violated my due process rights by conducting an emergency telephonic hearing without proper notice. The emergency hearing was based on the alleged DCF report, on a case that had not even been closed, so there was not any such report. In the unannounced telephonic hearing, I had no legal representation as direct result of this Judge trampling on the rule of law and making a mockery of the legal process. Here is some more information about her terrible performance: (www.robeprobe.com, blogs.miaminewtimes.com, www.ccfj.net).
Since that time, by order of another Judge, Pedro Echarte, I had only very limited supervised visitations with my kids, and my son went from scoring in the top quartile in the FCAT, and being given the honor of student of the month (one of the proudest moments of his and my life), to having serious deterioration of his grades and behavior, prompting the concerns from several of his teachers: 1, 2. To make matters worse, almost a year after our forced separation, I found out that my ex-wife’s attorneys were hiding the fact that my son had been diagnosed with Major Depression, and PTSD and was requiring psychiatric medications for them, with the later development of involuntary twitching of his neck and shoulders secondary to these medications. No other traumatic event had happened since my children were alienated from me and my side of the family last July 2012, and I only had very limited supervised visitations since then. Before this separation, my son was one of the best students in his class, but after my ex-wife attorneys’ collaborated to alienate my children, he developed these psychological conditions.
In further fraud upon the court, my ex’s attorneys filed a motion to vacate the dissolution of marriage alleging that Mother was not legally represented and was not given noticed of the dissolution of marriage, when in fact she had been the one initiating and promoting the divorce. See her initial motion, and three other motions filed there: 1, 2, 3. Additionally, opposite counsel claimed that Mother was under dourest at the time of the divorce being a victim of domestic violence, when in fact, Mother had been caught on hidden camera at a shopping center assaulting Father after he had found romantic messages on his son’s phone from Mother’s lover, Marcelo Villarreal. Please, see video of Mother’s assault, and hear recording of boyfriend confessing as to their relationship (see also transcript).
Judge Pedro Echarte not only refused to see the previous evidence, but added insult to injury when he refused to read the final report from DCF, and actually threw it in the garbage. The final report cleared me of the accusations, but judge Echarte threw it away claiming that it had been performed one day before he had given the order to do so. Instead of reading it, he ordered me to pay for a second psychological evaluation with a psychologist opposite counsel had recommended, and who had been responsible in great part for the death of Nubia Barahona. He also refused to domesticate the divorce decree obtained in Nicaragua, leaving the door open for opposite counsel to illegal vacate the divorce decree. Bare in mind that I had lost custody of my children just with an illegally obtained initial report from DCF via a purported “emergency” telephonic hearing without proper notification since it had been sent the same day of the filing of the motion to an address I was not even living in at that time.
In hopes of obtaining justice, I naively sent the following complaint to the FLORIDA JUDICIAL QUALIFICATIONS COMMISSION (FJQC) about Judge Pedro Echarte, since Judge Glazer was only conveniently sitting in for him on an emergency basis), but the FJQC unbelievably found no fault with Judge Echarte’s actions. After this, I have received communication from at least seven other parties in complete disgust with Judge Pedro Echartes’ violations of Florida’s Judicial code of conduct. These cases go from judge Echarte declaring as marital assets real state property from the mother of a parent before him, to removing custody of an autistic 12-year-old boy from a mother who had raised him for 12-years despite clear and convincing evidence that mother had been set up by former husband by false accusations to DCF.
To make matters worse, I then came before a third Judge, Scott Bernstein, who seemed to be inherently unable to identify with the love of a father for his children, who claimed to stand against bigotry but became a religious bigot himself, and who by his decisions, supported the opinion that somehow my Christian beliefs prevented me from freely seeing my children. Respect deserves respect, and judge Bernstein certainly lacked any respect to us all. At one point, he even scolded me for having more children with another person, and told me that this would not prevent me from having to pay for my ex’s attorneys fees. After some quick research on the internet, I found out why this Judge was so out of touch with the great majority of families in America: here are some links about Judge Bernstein and his “husband,” TV star David Young, sending a clear message to our children that it is perfectly “normal” for a man to marry another man, but that somehow, it is wrong for parents of faith to pray with their own children: miamiherald.typepad.com, gaylife.about.com, www.jud11.flcourts.org, www.flickr.com).
After basically ignoring all the evidence presented (Verified Petition for Dependency, RESPONSE TO MOTION FOR CIVIL CONTEMPT-ENFORCEMENT, Motion to vacate all orders, Memorandum in support of denial of mother’s motion for contempt, Father’s response to mother’s motions for contempt), Judge Bernstein nearly forced me into bankruptcy due to legal fees and costs, forcing me to pay for my ex’s attorneys, and contrary to all common sense, demanded that I undergo a second evaluation with the same psychologist I had reported to the Health Department instead of accepting the initial evaluation obtained from an independent psychologist from DCF. The psychologist was Vanessa Archer, the same person who in my opinion was negligently responsible for the killing of an innocent child not too long before my case, Nubia Barahona; please see official DCF report, Twins File Lawsuit and willful neglect lawsuit filed against DCF on behalf of Nubia’s adoptive siblings. Similarly to the Barahona case, Mrs. Archer, instead of reporting to the Judge pertinent information, such as the fact that my son had denied what I had been accused of, went ahead and requested to stop phone communication with my children because my son was contradicting what she had written in her report.
To no one’s surprise, Mrs. Archer, the psychologist procured by my ex’s attorneys, conveniently ignored the evidence presented, just like in the Barahona case, and recommended periodic re-evaluations with her ($1,800 each) and to continue with supervised visitations, where I needed to pay a social worker to see my children. To me, this was nothing more than a “legalized” form of extortion, and I was no longer willing to put up with it any more, so I have not had any contact with my children since October 26 of 2013 due to the corruption of these individuals. After almost being driven to bankruptcy in the Family Court system (which should be renamed Anti-Family Courts due to their current behavior against families), I have come to the conclusion that we are dealing with a New Mafia that “legally” kidnaps and exhorts money from its victims, so I have decided to join forces with organizations such as Divorce Corp to form a common front against these gangsters. What is even more sad is the fact that in Family Court even those who are supposed to help you may en up hurting you as attested by two of my previous attorneys, reasons why I decided to continue defending my children Pro Se.
Finally, even after presenting all the above evidence, Judge Bernstein went as far as prohibiting me to send e-mails with the daily Bible devotionals to my son, something I used to do with all my family contacts. Although I have submitted to authority all my life as Romans 13:1-2 calls Christians to do, or I wouldn’t have become a successful Olympian, engineer and physician, the Bible also commands Christians to obey God rather than men (Acts 5:29), so in the spirit of nonviolent civil disobedience of Gandhi and Luther King, I decided to disobey Judge Bernstein’s orders and go to jail if necessary to teach my children the word of God. I hereby call Christians of all denominations to unite in One Heart, the Heart of Christ, drawing the line, and saying to these individuals, as Peter and the other Apostles did, we will obey God rather than men! However, my case not only affects Christians, but also parents of all faiths, from Jews to Muslims, for it opens the doors to a religious persecution never before seen in America, so I am hereby also calling all parents who have faith in God to stand with me to protect our religious freedoms.
