Skip to comments.Johnathon Irish: 'Truthers' helped bring Baby Cheyenne home.
Posted on 10/17/2010 10:12:19 PM PDT by citizenredstater9271
In an interview on ITS radio (brodacast from Charlottesville, Va), Johnathan Irish expressed his gratitude to everyone who helped bring his daughter home, and out of the custody of Department of Children, Youth, and their Families (DCYF).
Stephanie Janrvin and Johnathon Irish live in Northwood, NH. After their child was born in early October 2010, the child was snatched by DCYF, reportedly over Irish's affiliation with Oath Keppers. DCYF claimed it to be a "militia".
Oath Keepers is a group of active duty police and military who have sworn to uphold their oath to protect the American people from enemies, both foreign and domestic. Leaders of the Oath Keepers, ranking police and military, have filed a demand letter with the New Hampshire DCYF, requesting that the name "Oath Keepers" be removed from the affidavit the court used to take the baby from the parents.
Baby Cheyenne, as she has become known, is back in the custody of her parents, - but not after a scare earlier this week. The child showed signs of sexual abuse and was rushed to a hospital. Days later she was released.
The fervor surrounding this rotten debocle is centered on Facebook. The overwhelming support by people, both foreign and domestic, changed the course of Baby Cheyenne's journey on Earth. The people have spoken.

“The child showed signs of sexual abuse”
The Vast Majority of Oath Keepers are Former military as well as Former Leo's!
The child showed signs of sexual abuse
Yeah, that was my first response, but check out the first comment at the site. Commenter attributes ID of sexual abuse to an ill trained social worker.
A *LOT* of poo being flung at the father. Whether justified or not, I have no idea, but the state actors sound like the Keystone cops crossed with the Southern Poverty Law Center.
Yeah, I picked up on that, too...
IIRC< those signs of abuse (blood in the diaper) only appeared after the baby had been in CPS (or whatever they call it up there) custody, and were not part of the allegations against Irish.
THE BABY WAS TAKEN FROM ITS PARENTS AT BIRTH! (no opportunity for sexual abuse at all by the parents)
Someone is doing some demonizing out there by not getting the story straight or by doing some really crappy writing.
“Someone is doing some demonizing out there by not getting the story straight or by doing some really crappy writing.”
There is some crabbed, malevolent leftist/activist in the background of this whole inane series of incidents. Find that person and the pieces will fall into place.
That was the "WTF?" point that just ran through my brain -- and then I remembered that, like the race card, allegations of sexual abuse are one of the left's favorite trump cards!
Whenever hurled, it places the accused immediately on the defensive and he/she must, at all costs, stop whatever he was doing or saying to muster all defensive energy against the slander.
I would be willing to bet money at this point that whoever made the accusation knew damn good and well that it HAD to be false, given that the baby was taken from the parents immediately after birth, but threw it out there anyhow just to use the stink for cover.
they need more people like you in NH.
Allegations of abuse have been made in this case from the start, just not sexual abuse.
While that reeks of the girlfriend's estranged (but not yet divorced) husband firing an opening salvo in a custody battle over the children he and Irish's girlfriend (his ex-wife to be) had, there was no allegation made of sexual abuse by Irish or the Girlfriend.
There was blood discovered in the baby's diaper when Irish and the Girlfriend were allowed a supervised visit, after the baby had been in state custody. If there was any abusing going on (in other words, if there was no medical reason for blood in the diaper which did not involve abuse) any abuse went on while the child was in government agency control.
For the writer to spit that at Irish as if Irish (or his girlfriend) had been the one who might have abused the child is a level of slander which demands response and clarification. (As we used to say, 'them's fighting words'.)
Yes, the Left uses allegations of abuse as a tool of demonization, with a threshhold of 'proof' just above wild-eyed rumor, and in many instances where the accused, in shock at the allegations, are summarily adjudged to have abused or neglected their children (went to the bathroom while the toddler was playing in a fenced yard with a locked gate within hearing range in a good neighborhood constitutes "neglect" according to some of the Social Serpents), they are lumped in with those who have performed heinous acts of abuse in databases at the state level, undifferentiated from those who have mercilessly tortured kids.
Why do this sort of thing to fundamentally good parents?
First, fundamentally good parents aren't likely to beat you down in a grocery store parking lot some night.
Second, they are generally shocked at the allegations, and the 'deer in the headlights' response makes for easy prey.
Third, good parents usually are productive people, people who can afford to pay for the parenting classes, anger management, childrearing, etc. courses which the CPS will require through the courts on little more evidence than 'he said/she said', and without the testimony of witnesses of presentation of accusers other than the state. (One such situation I know of would have required the parents to take some eight different courses with a total tab of $50,000)
This also has the net effect of stuffing case files, which means the CPS needs more personnel, which means more money, which also means opportunity for advancement through enhanced seniority, et cetera.
My advice remains to any parent faced with this situation: Lawyer up fast. No mealy mouthed attorney need apply--you will need one who will hammer your accusers--your children, your world is at stake.
Do not even talk with the caseworkers, refer them to your attorney. They will be nice to you, but they are NOT your friend, they are the mortal enemy of your family unit.
They will relentlessly fish for information they can distort into a pattern of neglect or abuse, and their criteria are such that most parents would fit that pattern for the most innocuous reasons.
Social workers are impressed by new stuff
they will notice old baby chairs, dirty stuff
get rid of any alcohol
get everything clean and new
be attending school
say you support the Dim candidate
don’t talk rough
