‘Adolph Hitler’ Ordered to be Held In Custody In New Jersey

One day, you take your family to the grocery store to order a decorated birthday cake for your youngest son.  There’s just one problem, they refuse to decorate the cake for you.  Not because you don’t have the money for it.  Not because they ran out of icing or cake.  But, because they refuse to write your son’s name on the cake, his name, Adolph Hitler Campbell. After the story of this incident broke in the local news papers, child protective services showed up on the doorstep of the Campbell’s, ultimately, child services took all four of their children into custody. Three of their four children are named after Nazi figures or terminology. This happened in New Jersey in 2009.

Fast forward to present day. There was a hearing in Superior Court to decide if the children should be held in State custody or be returned to their parents. Superior Court Judge Robert Reed ruled that the children should continue to be detained in the states care. A decision Adolph’s father strongly disagreed with saying  it was based purely on the names of his children rather than the couple’s ability to serve as parents.

“These kids weren’t abused. Our kids weren’t taken because of abuse,” Campbell said. “I’m honest about who I am and what I am.” He further added “If I have to give up my Nazism, then so be it. I’ll do it,” he said. The children are “more my heart and soul and everything than anything.”

The Campbell’s are reported to have separated. An interesting interconnected note is that the Nazi Party recently filed the paper work in Washington D.C. to have their own lobbyist to the Congress of the United States in April, 2012, and were permitted to do so.

Here is one thing to consider. In America we have a constitutional right to the freedom of association, no matter what the social astigmatism is. We are protected from persecution by the government for being associated with any political ideology. If someone wants to follow communist ideology, in America they are free to do so, even though I strongly disagree with their decision in that choice, I support their right to subscribe to communism. Because I support the U.S. Constitution. We have a right to free and open debate.

I do not like anything that promotes Nazism, I find their actions both past and present, to be detestable. However, I don’t support an over reaching all-powerful government bureaucracy whether Federal, State, or Local in nature.

Here is another point of view to ponder.

Muhammad is a very popular name in the world right now, and many young boys are being named Muhammad currently.

In AD 627, Muhammad committed an atrocity against the last remaining major tribe of Jews in Medina: the Qurayza. Muhammad beheaded or had beheaded 750 Jews, adults and prepubescent males, and gathered all the women together as slaves. Muhammad, also had taken to himself a wife, a young girl of the age of around 9. He was middle-aged at the time of their wedding. The Hadith chronicles the story of Muhammad marrying the 9 year old girl of his friend,the girl was named Aisha. The Southern Baptists had gotten into some hot water over referring to Muhammad as a “Demon Possessed Pedophile” in 2002.

If Muhammad hated the Jews, and killed them. And Adolph hated the Jews, and killed them. Why is it more politically correct to name children Muhammad than Adolph. Is it in our psyche as a nation to abhor the name Adolph, because his atrocities were more recent, and closer to the surface of our knowledge than that of Muhammad’s atrocities? I would say that is part of it. However, consider this point of view, or are we so afraid of being politically incorrect to tell the truth about both men, because Islam calls one of them a prophet? Are we to afraid to criticise one because he is a so-called “religious” figure? And, equally, are we so easy to criticise the other one because its socially acceptable to do so?

In America, does the government have the right to take children into custody, because of their name? Where no credible evidence of abuse can be determined beyond a reasonable doubt? Can they break up a family because of your decision to name your children what you seen fit?  Should the authorities be investigating Islamic families that are naming their boys Muhammad?  If the answer is yes, we are in a world of hurt.

This video, has to be the truest and most accurate documentary to show just how America has arrived at this place in her history.  This video accrued  300,000 hits in its first 2 to 3 days of being posted on YouTube. The video, produced by, was made to contradict the extremist, leftist, environmentalist point of view. It was released to coincide with the Earth day “holiday”. It illustrates exactly how we’ve gotten to this current place of a stagnant economy. It is so true in fact, it only took one day for the Obama administration to lean on the people at Twitter, and have Free Market America’s Twitter page shut down.

In contrast, the @killzimmerman Twitter page, (of Trayvon Martin Fame) which had people tweeting and retweeting death threats toward George Zimmerman, took almost 3 weeks to shut down. By the way, that webpage was only shut down after Twitter decided to follow its own policy, not from anyone in the government. Currently this video is closing in on 600,000 hits, it has went viral. And there is a very good reason for that, it speaks the truth unapologetically.

Family law in Ohio, and how it affects Fathers, Mothers, and their Children

In Ohio, the current statutes are skewed in the favor of the custodial parent when concerning contempt of court proceedings. Let me explain, if you are the non-custodial parent and you are named in your court order to pay child support, if you were to fall behind (even through no fault of your own) after 30 days delinquency you will find yourself on the receiving end of a summons. The CSEA through the Ohio Department of Job and Family Service acts on behalf of the child (also the custodial parent) and summons you to court to answer a charge of contempt. This legal action costs $0.00 to the custodial parent.

Now, if you are the custodial parent, you are able to sever visitation from the non-custodial parent and the children, causing you to be in contempt. When the non-custodial parent wants to remedy this issue and continue visitation he or she must hire legal counsel, pay a fee to the court to have the case heard (most cases $400.00), most attorney fees for this action can run between $600.00 to $1000.00. So to summarize, if you are a non-custodial parent it will cost you, $1000.00 to $1400.00 just to get the custodial parent into court to answer for a contempt charge (this still does not guarantee you will see your children). And if you are a custodial parent, after 30 days delinquency on child support payments, the legal system/state agency becomes your advocate, at no cost to you, and sends a summons to the non-custodial parent.

The fourteenth amendment to the U.S. Constitution section1.

All persons born or naturalized in the United States, and subject to the jurisdiction thereof, are citizens of the United States and of the State wherein they reside. No State shall make or enforce any law which shall abridge the privileges or immunities of citizens of the United States; nor shall any State deprive any person of life, liberty, or property, without due process of law; nor deny to any person within its jurisdiction the equal protection of the laws.


Proposed Legislation – State of Ohio – Domestic Relations

Whereas the family has been the foundation of society from the origins of the world. So then, because a child (or children) have been naturally appointed with a father and a mother, and a child (or children) being a gift from God, it is of the utmost importance that they have relationships with both parents to sustain the blessings of this life, and so they do not forget their ancestors and familial heritage.


Whereas it is good and prudent that governments be instituted among men, and government; being a reflection of the current order of the institution of the American family, I, Robert E. Stage Jr. propose amending the domestic relations segment of the Ohio Revised Code to make the law more equitable among custodial and non-custodial parents.

A. When a custodial parent shall fail to comply with the court appointed enjoyed parenting time for a period of more than 30 days, the CSEA / Job and family services case worker shall, in a written and sworn affidavit notify the county prosecutor of the alleged contempt of court. Upon receiving the sworn affidavit, the county prosecutor shall file a charge of contempt of court against the custodial parent in the court of the original verdict and decree.

(1.) The non-custodial parent must show causal for the aforementioned legal action by acquiring police reports for each infraction of the court appointed enjoyed parenting time order.

(2.) The non-custodial parent shall be wholly responsible for any and all evidence and its gathering (also its delivery to the CSEA / Job and Family Services caseworker).

B. If found guilty of contempt, punishment of the custodial parent shall be equal to the existing statutes for child support delinquency.

(1.) Upon first conviction of contempt, the custodial parent shall be incarcerated for a period of up to 30 days and pay up to a $250.00 fine.

(2.) Upon second conviction of contempt, the custodial parent shall be incarcerated for a period of up to 60 days and pay up to a $500.00 fine.

(3.) Upon third conviction of contempt, the custodial parent shall be incarcerated for a period of up to 90 days and pay up to a $1000.00 fine.

I am submitting this proposal to my state representatives, if you support this proposal please leave your comments stating such. Thank you.

Also, please reblog and share this with Facebook and Twitter with as many people as you can.

The problems get worse before they get better.

Most people who have went through a divorce in the distant past would probably agree with the title of this writing. When couples are facing the tough decision of reconciliation or divorce court, the problems that brought them to that place in their relationship often times didn’t happen over night. They are usually the culmination of years of fighting over any number of issues; fidelity, money, parenting, work, friends, attitudes, etc.  What many people do not realize is that divorce is the first step to an even more stressful relationship with an ex-partner, family, family in-law, and their children. Sadly, many do not think through every aspect of the divorce before heading in its direction. Many do not weigh all the consequences that will come with the big “D”. Now instead of arguing about income; you argue over two incomes, instead of arguing over parenting; you argue over what your child(ren) was allowed to do when in the care of the other. And the fighting goes on, and on, and on. Whatever their decision, couples need to know that treading into the direction of divorce should not be taken lightly. In the bible, Jesus gave only one legitimate reason for divorce, infidelity; anything lesser than that should and could be reconciled.

With that being said, there are some who have been reminded on what seems to be a daily basis by their wives or husbands, “If you leave me, you’ll lose everything; kids, house, cars and when I say everything, I mean everything!” I myself, hail from this particular group of people. When my ex-wife explained to me that if I ever left her that she would take everything from me including the kids and the house, she used to solidify her statements by adding a little caveat by saying “And if I cant do it, my Mom will see to it happening!” Maybe you’ve heard those very same words. In my case this is actually the only vow my ex-wife ever kept.

Luckily, life does not end “post children”. Every day is a challenge, but I have made it, and in most cases prospered. With the support of my soul mate, my new wife Cynthia, I have since my divorce, gained my self-respect back, went to school and received my GED, I even completed and passed a couple of college courses. Also I went to school and received a State of Ohio license to sell Life, Health, and Annuity insurance. We have a ton of fun raising and playing with our three labrador puppies. Our life is really good.

 I can remember feeling like my ex-wife was extorting me to stay in a destructive relationship by holding me hostage with my great love for our children. In the end, If you are not respected, not loved, treated poorly, or just plain discounted as a second class citizen in your relationship, no amount of extortion will keep you in it. It may keep you for a season, but soon that season will be over, and so will the relationship. Most will say, “stick it out for the children’s sake.” often times this only teaches children to stay in the same destructive relationships when they grow up and are dating or married. This just perpetuates the hurtful vicious cycle in the next generation.

No one can make these hard decisions for you. But if you’re visiting this blog; take this advice, get plenty of input and counselling before you make any decision. Also read the first psalm in the Bible, and follow it strictly, get good solid Godly advice in your situation. Find good moral things to do to fill your time with, help a neighbor, volunteer, bless others with your talents.

Don’t perpetuate damaging behavior because you feel it’s just “best” for all involved.

A brave new world

This blog has been constructed so that divorced parents who have been kept from seeing their children by the “custodial” parent, have an outlet; a voice that might be heard. Somewhere for you to comment about others, and to lift up others who are going through their ordeals that they face. Somewhere for you to gain encouragement when the future seems bleak, and you’re are not sure if you can take one more step forward. It often times is very lonely being a divorced parent, that loneliness is only amplified by selfish and greedy; sometimes just hurtful ex-partners; who wish to sever the bond between a child and their “non-custodial” parent. What’s even worse sometimes, not only do the “custodial” parents keep you at bay, you also have extra-family members dictating their rules also when pertaining to visitation. Maybe you have found solace in your new spouse as I have, or maybe you have thrown yourself into your career, or a hobby. Whatever it is that you do to dull the sting of the loss of companionship of your child(ren), deep inside you know there is a child shaped hole that is just not filled any longer. Having that hole inside you cuts you to the very deepest parts of your soul. Not knowing if your daughter will still ask you to walk her down the aisle, because she hasn’t spoken to you in more than a few years. Not knowing if your son would ask you to be his best man on his special day. Not knowing if you will see your very own grandchildren grow up, or be a part of their life at all, in any way. These may be some thoughts or questions you ask yourself, or better put, torture yourself with. This blog is to let parents know they are not alone in their pain and agony. It is dedicated to those who have had to “let go” much too soon. It is a memorial to all the children who want to see their daddy or mommy; — but are afraid to speak because they don’t want to hurt the other.

Somewhere tonight; a child and a parent are crying out from the depths of their heart to God in heaven, only wanting to be reunited and to begin repairing the relationship that has been damaged and lost.
