I really hate to be negative… but this is positively revolting. Disgusting. Indescribably offensive.
In the Land of the Free recently, a California couple had their child kidnapped by the state. At gunpoint.
It all started in mid-April when Anna and Alex Nikolayev took their
5-month old son Sammy to the hospital in Sacramento to be treated for
The parents didn’t particularly care for the treatment that their son
was receiving. Doctors were pumping him full of antibiotics and soon
began talking about performing surgery.
Anna and Alex argued with the doctors and said that they were going
to get a second opinion; they took the baby and went to another hospital
where another physician deemed it perfectly safe for the child to
return home with his parents without the need for surgery.
The next day, with the family resting comfortably at home, the police showed up with Child Protective Services.
Alex, the father, went outside to talk to them where he was thrown to
the ground by police. Officers then relieved him of his house keys and
proceeded to let themselves into the house with hands on their pistols.
Then, still with their hands on their pistols, they told the mother
“I’m going to grab your baby, and don’t resist and don’t fight me…”
The child was then ripped from his mother’s arms and placed into state custody, where he remained for a week.
Yesterday, a Sacramento County judge ordered that Sammy be
transferred to a hospital in Palo Alto (120 miles away), and that his
parents finally be given unfettered access to their son… under the
condition that the State of California’s Child Protective Services
continue to monitor the ‘situation’.
Guns. Cops. Government bureaucrats. Courts. Kidnapping. A dysfunctional medical care system.
This is what it means to be in the Land of the Free… where collecting
rainwater, consuming raw milk, or seeking a second opinion on your
child’s medical care is now criminalized.
When you don’t even have the basic right to make decisions about your
own child… and when your own child can be forced from you at gunpoint
in your own home that was entered illegally… you know that freedom has
officially hit the waste bin of history.
Perhaps the greatest irony is that the parents are originally from
Russia… but they had to come to the United States to find the Soviet

Oregon that the drive for a 49th State is
something more than a publicity stunt.
While it is
natural that we in the area affected have had a little fun
with the scheme here and there, as have others on the
outside, there is an underlying seriousness that cannot be
More, there is a
growing determination that this time we really will
"do something about it."
"it" reflects a number of things, tangible and
It reflects a
resentment of a great body of people in a great
geographical area who are tired of being regarded as a
hill-billy group who are not of sufficient importance to
be given considerate treatment.
their resentment against lack of the roads they need for
proper development of their resources; resentment against
the tremendous wastage of money by governmental agencies
for nonessentials and pap while metal and timber reserves
badly needed for national defense are ignored.
further, a will on the part of these people to join forces
with others in California and Oregon whose needs are
similar and to establish a political commonwealth that
will be interested in and responsible only to the people
in this area.
letters and cards from many states indicate, we think,
also a state of mind in other regions that would encourage
us to establish the State of Jefferson, and that would
bring these people to live with us if we do.

spirit of America in there souls; people who want another
frontier to develop; people who are willing to work and
sacrifice to that end as their forefathers did; people who
are wearied of governmental pap, demagoguery, waste and
In short, people
who want to be Americans again.

believe the area would double in population within a year.
