Nancy Schaefer’s prescription at the conclusion of her Amsterdam speech: http://exiledfathers.org/nancy_schaefer_in_amsterdam.mp3 (starts at 10 min.)
LET NANCY SPEAK!!! Nancy Schaefer - Amsterdam https://www.real.video/5837298599001
1 - “Remove, abolish the federal and state incentives. And those are taxpayer dollars. Those dollars have turned CPS into a business that takes children and separates families for money.”
2 - “Open family court. Remove the confidentiality laws.” = No more secret courts.
3 - “Give parents their rights verbally and in writing.“ = Follow the Bill of Rights.
4 - “To terminate the rights of a parent, the case should be heard before a jury. Family rights and parents rights must be protected.” = Follow the Bill of Rights.
5 - “We do not need more influence like the U.N. Convention on the Rights of the Child. It’s anti-parent, anti-child and anti-common sense for the family.” = Truth
“There has to be perseverance for any great reform. And great reform is needed in this area.” The only reform we need is repeal of unconstitutional federal and state statutes that are repugnant to U.S. and State constitutions.
“As Charles Spurgeon put it, ‘how do you tame a lion that is well-fed?’ First, he must be brought down. Second, his stomach must be lowered. How do you tame child protective services? It may be by closing it completely and starting over at the beginning with pro-family values.”
“In closing, let me remind you, that there is case law from state appellate and federal district courts, and up to the United States Supreme Court, which affirm the constitutionality of the rights of parents to actually be parents to their children.”
There’s Biblical law too. It goes like this: Speak up for those who can’t speak for themselves and for the rights of all who are destitute. Speak up, and judge fairly. Defend the rights of the poor and the needy.”
What did she mean by bringing the lion down and lowering its stomach?
She said, “Remove, abolish the federal and state incentives.”
That means REPEAL them. It sounds like she understand that there’s no enumerated power, for at least the federal government, to deal with family issues. These are powers reserved to the States pursuant to Amendments 9 and 10 of the Bill of Rights:
Powers reserved to the People and to the States.
Federal statutes dealing with family issues are unconstitutional. Attempts to “fix” federal legislation such as Title IV with the Family First Prevention Services Act are asking Congress to do what the Constitution forbids.
The Bill of Rights is the REAL family first act!!!
As Alexander Hamilton said in Federalist 78: “There is no position which depends on clearer principles, than that every act of a delegated authority, contrary to the tenor of the commission under which it is exercised, is void. No legislative act, therefore, contrary to the Constitution, can be valid. To deny this, would be to affirm, that the deputy is greater than his principal; that the servant is above his master; that the representatives of the people are superior to the people themselves; that men acting by virtue of powers, may do not only what their powers do not authorize, but what they forbid.”
The general welfare clause does not empower Congress to pass legislation on any issue under the sun they feel might be a good idea so long as a majority votes for it.

Here’s what Congress can do: Thirty Enumerated Powers https://tenthamendmentcenter.com/historical-documents/united-states-constitution/thirty-enumerated-powers/
Nancy Schaefer understood that the answer was in the Constitution and Bill of Rights:
1) Public, open courts, 2) Trial by jury and 3) Following case law upholding the Fundamental, Natural right to be a parent. There’s no need to reinvent the wheel by seeking new legislation which presumes we do not already have the right to equal parenting. We do have the right. The problem is judges who, in secret, unconstitutional kangaroo courts, under color of law, violate our rights.
