Born Into Slavery 4 of 4

Continued from Part 3

ILLINOIS’ GENERAL ASSISTANCE PROGRAM REQUIRES APPLICANTS TO ACTIVELY SEEK EMPLOYMENT

The State of Illinois’ major public aid programs are financed with federal funds. However, though grossly inferior, the State oversees a self-funded general assistance program, which is administered and funded at the local level. Though this program is under the complete jurisdiction of the State, as it does with its other programs, this too is chosen to run in conjunction and as a supplement to its federally-funded programs. The federally-funded counterparts to the State’s general assistance program are much better funded, in lieu of the dollars received from federal direct income taxation on states’ citizens, and the State of Illinois makes it a prerequisite to offer general assistance only to its citizens that do not qualify for federal assistance.

“A person otherwise eligible for aid under the federally funded programs to aid refugees or Articles III, IV or V who fails or refuses to comply with provisions of this Code or other laws, or rules and regulations of the Illinois Department, which would qualify him for aid under those programs or Articles, shall not receive General Assistance under this Article nor shall any of his dependents whose eligibility is contingent upon such compliance receive General Assistance.” (305 ILCS 5/6‑1.3)

Of course if one does not have a SSN, then he cannot receive federally-funded aid. But the SSA is in the practice of issuing SSN’s to whomever wants them, and thus the State of Illinois would consider this eligibility; and lack of a SSN will be no excuse for not qualifying to receive its federal-funded assistance. Another hurdle is that the individual must actively seek employment, which he is prohibited from having without a SSN. For mere survival purposes, especially if one has children, the compulsion, or if not this, the extreme pressure to acquire the federal SSN while living in State society will be impossible to bear.

“A person who is able to engage in employment, … who is unemployed or employed for less than the full working time for the occupation in which he is engaged, must register for and accept bona fide offers of employment, as provided in Section 11‑20. The local governmental unit shall determine, pursuant to rules and regulations, sanctions for persons failing to comply with requirements under this Section. In addition to any sanctions provided for in Section 11‑20, sanctions may include the loss of eligibility to receive aid under this Article for up to 90 days.” (305 ILCS 5/6‑1.4)

THE SECRETARY OF HEALTH AND HUMAN SERVICES HAS JURISDICTION OVER THE NATION’S CHILDREN

The care and supervision over one’s own child, and the molding of him into a responsible adult first, and citizen second, is the most fundamental of all rights a parent can have. Absent bona fide abuse to the child, the parents rule over the child should be nearly unabated. But from the very birth of the child, the Secretary of Health and Human Services is more than aggressive in his determining who the parents of the newly born infant are. Thanks to the benevolence of the SSA in allowing state’s the free use of the SSN in their governmental administrative processes, the federal Department of Health and Human Services’ (HHS) watchful and hawkish eye over the “well-being” of the nation’s children, and the willful and wanton submission to federal jurisdiction by the Department of Public Health for the State of Illinois in exchange for federal monies (42 U.S.C. 651), the SSN’s of parents are required by law to appear on all birth certificates.

“…the social security numbers of the mother and father shall be collected at the time of the birth of the child. These numbers shall not be recorded on the certificate of live birth. The numbers may be used only for those purposes allowed by Federal law.” (410 ILCS 535/11)

The SSN collected at birth is not for the purpose of the birth certificate, but rather to place the parents into a database known as the ‘Federal Parent Locator Service,’ with the parents SSN’s serving as their unique individual identifiers, for the purposes of expedited child support enforcement services; i.e., the right to instruct parents in how to manage their children according to arbitrary standards; all under the guise of protecting the children. But as mentioned before, it is the jurisdictional sovereignty of the states that is coveted by the federal government.

“(1) The Secretary shall establish and conduct a Federal Parent Locator Service … which shall be used for the purposes specified in paragraphs (2) and (3). (2) For the purpose of establishing parentage or establishing, setting the amount of, modifying, or enforcing child support obligations, the Federal Parent Locator Service shall obtain and transmit to any authorized person specified in subsection (c) of this section— (A) information on, or facilitating the discovery of, the location of any individual— (i) who is under an obligation to pay child support; (ii) against whom such an obligation is sought; (iii) to whom such an obligation is owed; or (iv) who has or may have parental rights with respect to a child, including the individual’s social security number (or numbers), most recent address, and the name, address, and employer identification number of the individual’s employer; (B) information on the individual’s wages (or other income) from, and benefits of, employment (including rights to or enrollment in group health care coverage); and (C) information on the type, status, location, and amount of any assets of, or debts owed by or to, any such individual.” (42 U.S.C. 653 (a))

“The Illinois Department through its Child and Spouse Support Unit shall enter into agreements with the Secretary of Health and Human Services or his designee under which the services of the federal Parent Locator Service established by the Social Security Act are made available to this State and the Illinois Department for the purpose of locating an absent parent ...” (305 ILCS 5/10‑3.2)

This Federal Parent Locator Service is made possible via the help and cooperation of the Health Departments of various states. The Directory of “New Hires,” mentioned in the unemployment section above, is the brainchild of the HHS and its child support “suggested” legislation. The Federal Parent Locator Service serves as the liaison between the “New Hires” and the Child support cases database (or alimony via the SSN driven State marriage licenses database (750 ILCS 5/202)). By serving as the intermediary, the federal government is right at the center of all matters between state and citizen, and citizen and citizen, all under the semblance of helping the nation’s children.

“ … each State shall establish an automated directory (to be known as the “State Directory of New Hires”) which shall contain information supplied in accordance with subsection (b) of this section by employers on each newly hired employee. (1) In general an agency designated by the State shall, directly or by contract, conduct automated comparisons of the social security numbers reported by employers pursuant to subsection (b) of this section and the social security numbers appearing in the records of the State case registry for cases being enforced under the State plan. (2) Notice of match When an information comparison conducted under paragraph (1) reveals a match with respect to the social security number of an individual required to provide support under a support order, the State Directory of New Hires shall provide the agency administering the State plan approved under this part of the appropriate State with the name, address, and social security number of the employee to whom the social security number is assigned, and the name and address of, and identifying number assigned under section 6109 of the Internal Revenue Code of 1986 to, the employer.” (42 U.S. C. 653a)

“A State plan for child and spousal support must provide for the establishment and operation by the State agency … of a statewide automated data processing and information retrieval system meeting the requirements of section 654a of this title designed effectively and efficiently to assist management in the administration of the State plan, so as to control, account for, and monitor all the factors in the support enforcement collection and paternity determination process under such plan;” (42 U.S.C. 654 (16))

A couple may be tempted to not sign the birth certificate under the condition of divulging their SSN’s and forfeiting their child’s right to privacy. Of course the mother has little choice but to disclose this information, or be faced with the prospect of having her child taken from her by the hospital medical staff, or other “person” who finds a child of “unknown parentage.”

“Whoever assumes the custody of a living infant of unknown parentage shall report on a form and in the manner prescribed by the State Registrar of Vital Records, within 3 days, to the local registrar of the district in which the child was found, the following information: (a) The date and place of finding; (b) Sex, color or race, and approximate age of child; (c) Name and address of the persons or institution with whom the child has been placed for care; (d) Name given to the child by the custodian; and (e) Other data required by the State Registrar of Vital Records. (2) The place where the child was found shall be entered as the place of birth, and the date of birth shall be determined by approximation. (3) A report filed under this Section shall constitute the certificate of birth for the infant. (4) If the child is identified and a certificate of birth is found or obtained, any report filed under this Section shall be sealed and filed and may be opened only by order of a court of competent jurisdiction or as provided by regulation.” (410 ILCS 535/13)

The mother has little choice but to submit, but the father has options if he and his wife were smart enough not to seek a State marriage license to validate their union. The SSNs of the matrimonial couple are required on the marriage application, and if the couple has rejected such marriage license, then the father’s name will not appear on the birth certificate unless he signs an acknowledgment of paternity or parentage form, which also requires the disclosure of his SSN.

“The Director of Public Health shall prescribe the form for an application for a marriage license, which shall include the following information: (1) name, sex, occupation, address, social security number, date and place of birth of each party to the proposed marriage;” (750 ILCS 5/202)

“Unless otherwise provided in this Act, if the mother was not married to the father of the child at either the time of conception or the time of birth, the name of the father shall be entered on the child's birth certificate only if the mother and the person to be named as the father have signed an acknowledgment of parentage form … “ (410 ILCS 535/12)

Such a household with only one recognized parent for a child is against stated national and state policy. But in reality, this means that it is against public policy for individuals to not use their SSN’s, and the child(ren) of a couple is the strongest tool of coercion available to the State to force a couple into submission.

“The purpose of this part is to increase the flexibility of States in operating a program designed to— (1) provide assistance to needy families so that children may be cared for in their own homes or in the homes of relatives; (2) end the dependence of needy parents on government benefits by promoting job preparation, work, and marriage; (3) prevent and reduce the incidence of out-of-wedlock pregnancies and establish annual numerical goals for preventing and reducing the incidence of these pregnancies; and (4) encourage the formation and maintenance of two-parent families.” (42 U.S.C. 601 (a))

A recalcitrant father, who otherwise refuses to sign a birth certificate or an acknowledgement of paternity form for his child, will have no legal rights with regard to the child. Thus, if anything should happen to the child’s mother, legally his status will not be recognized. He must then either submit to acquiring, or using his SSN as a prerequisite to employment via an employer, or for licensure requirements of a regulatory agency if self-employed. He can then support his family by being the “unofficially” head. This seems to be the best plan, but if he remains dogged in his refusal to get the federal SSN, the mother of the child will be forced to receive federally-funded state public assistance. If the father is suspected of being the father, by virtue of his association with the child and mother, he can be labeled as a putative father, and forced into paternity establishment proceedings. Any person with any association with the child can initiate a suit, including social workers, doctors, caregivers, educators, etc.

“Each family receiving aid shall be interviewed in person or communicated with in investigations of applications for aid and at least once in each subsequent 12 month period to ascertain continuing need for such aid and to provide the child and his parents or relatives with such service and guidance as will strengthen family life and aid them in utilizing to the maximum their capacities for self‑care, self‑support, and responsible citizenship.” (305 ILCS 5/4‑7)

“An action to determine the existence of the father and child relationship … may be brought by the child; the mother; a pregnant woman; any person or public agency who has custody of, or is providing or has provided financial support to, the child; the Department of Healthcare and Family Services if it is providing or has provided financial support to the child or if it is assisting with child support collection services…” (750 ILCS 45/7)

“Upon request by a public office, employers, labor unions, and telephone companies shall provide location information concerning putative fathers and noncustodial parents for the purpose of establishing a child's paternity or establishing, enforcing, or modifying a child support obligation.” (750 ILCS 45/14.5)

“The Illinois Department shall notify the Department of Public Health of a final determination of parentage and a voluntary acknowledgment of paternity made under the rules authorized by Section 10‑17.7, and the Department of Public Health shall issue a new certificate of birth pursuant to Section 17 of the Vital Records Act.” (305 ILCS 5/10‑17.8)

Without the SSN, a family will otherwise find itself in an epic struggle with the State directly, with the federal government pulling the strings from behind the scenes. With use of the SSN on a child’s birth certificate, the HHS Secretary is the de facto grandfather of the child, because he is the de facto father of the parents whom have SSN’s. Because without it, it is next to impossible to survive without government aid, and one must “voluntarily” obtain a federal SSN for State aid. Irrespective of the father, the mother receiving benefits would be forced from being a full-time mother, and to undergo vocational programs approved by the State, or risk losing financial assistance. The father will be forced to work under the pain of jail time for contumacy.

“… the Illinois Department as a condition of eligibility for public aid, may, as provided by rule, require all recipients to participate in an education, training, and employment program, which shall include accepting suitable employment and refraining from terminating employment or reducing earnings without good cause.” (305 ILCS 5/9A‑4)

“Whenever it is determined in a proceeding to establish or enforce a child support or maintenance obligation that the person owing a duty of support is unemployed, the court may order the person to seek employment and report periodically to the court with a diary, listing or other memorandum of his or her efforts in accordance with such order.” (750 ILCS 5/505.1)

THE CHILD WILL HAVE TO BE ENROLLED IN PUBLIC SCHOOL WHEN HE COMES OF AGE

Low-income parents with a child, who are somehow surviving without SSN’s, will have to enroll the child into a public school when he comes of age. This because it is compulsory, but more importantly, private schooling costs money, and this option will likely be unavailable to them.

Whoever has custody or control of any child between the ages of 7 and 17 years (unless the child has already graduated from high school) shall cause such child to attend some public school in the district wherein the child resides the entire time it is in session during the regular school term, except as provided in Section 10‑19.1, and during a required summer school program established under Section 10‑22.33B; provided, that the following children shall not be required to attend the public schools: 1. Any child attending a private or a parochial school where children are taught the branches of education taught to children of corresponding age and grade in the public schools, and where the instruction of the child in the branches of education is in the English language;” (105 ILCS 5/26‑1)

In Illinois, private schools must register with the State Board of Education for certification, and every teacher at the school must submit their SSN’s for purposes of background checks. With homeschooling, though the Illinois School Code is silent on the point, courts have upheld that homeschooling is considered a “form of private education.” But the burden of proof will be on the parents to prove that their children are homogeneous along with their peers in public schools. Consequently, the State has laws befitting the busybody, and they will have no quarrels with reporting the neighbor’s children as truant, given that their children are enrolled in public school, without seeking to understand fully their neighbor’s situation. Any “person” can file a complaint, upon which the local school board must investigate.

“The truant officer of the school district, whenever notified by the Superintendent, teacher, or other person of violations of this Article, or the county truant officer, when notified by the County Superintendent, shall investigate all cases of truancy or non‑attendance at school in their respective jurisdictions, and if the children complained of are not exempt under the provisions of this Article, the truant officer shall proceed as is provided in this Article.” (105 ILCS 5/26‑5)

Every employee of a public and non-public school has a SSN, because as a condition of employment, they must submit to criminal background checks which request such information. What will the Board of Education think of parents so unorthodox as to not have a SSN, like everyone else, while judging their plight? And likewise, what will a truant officer think of a family so weird as to not have SSNs, and with the audacity to not send their child(ren) to public or a recognized private school like everyone else? All of this seems to work against the family trying to disassociate itself from the federal SSN. A petition filed against the parents would certainly lead to them obtaining a SSN, lest they face dire consequences, such as a jail time, but more importantly the threat of losing their child(ren) to the allegation of bad parenting and “child neglect.”

“The petition for court action shall include the name of the truant minor, the names and addresses of persons having custody or control of the student, the dates of the truant behavior, the dates and nature of contacts or conferences with the student and the persons having custody or control of the student, and the nature of the supportive services, alternative programs and other school resources the school district provided to that child in an effort to correct that child's truant behavior.” (105 ILCS 5/26‑8a)

SCHOOL LUNCH IN EXCHANGE FOR PARENTS' SOCIAL SECURITY NUMBER

What does a parent’s SSN have to do with giving one of the nation’s children a free or reduced school lunch; other than to tap into unutilized resources in the way of increased memberships and contributions to the Social Security program? FICA taxes are an equal percentage-based tax on wages up to a certain capped amount of income. As such, it is a regressive tax (contribution) which disproportionately affects the poor rather than the rich. Taxing the poor for benefits is to not give them any benefits at all, but rather to charge them for it; and often this charge proves to be well above the value of the product and services they receive, do to government mismanagement. But nevertheless, parents with a child enrolled in a public school ran at the State level provides assistance for its citizens by means of selling them out to the federal government for grant monies from the National School Lunch Program. Such a program seems trivial enough for a State to operate independent of federal assistance, especially given the fact that they have decreed State education as mandatory.

“The Secretary shall require as a condition of eligibility for receipt of free or reduced price lunches that the member of the household who executes the application furnish the social security account number of the parent or guardian who is the primary wage earner responsible for the care of the child for whom the application is made, or that of another appropriate adult member of the child’s household, as determined by the Secretary. The Secretary shall require that social security account numbers of all adult members of the household be provided if verification of the data contained in the application is sought under subsection (b)(3)(G) of this section.” (42 U.S.C. 1758 (d)(1))

“A school board shall, whenever requested by the Department of Healthcare and Family Services (formerly Department of Public Aid), agree in writing with the Department of Healthcare and Family Services (as the State agency that administers the State Medical Assistance Program as provided in Title XIX of the federal Social Security Act and the State Children's Health Insurance Program as provided in Title XXI of the federal Social Security Act) to share with the Department of Healthcare and Family Services information on applicants for free or reduced‑price lunches ... This sharing of information shall be for the sole purpose of helping the Department of Healthcare and Family Services identify and enroll children in the State Medical Assistance Program or the State Children's Health Insurance Program or both as allowed under 42 U.S.C. Sec. 1758(b)(2)(C)(iii)(IV) and under the restrictions set forth in 42 U.S.C. Sec. 1758(b)(2)(C)(vi) and (vii).” (105 ILCS 5/10‑28)

NEGLECTED CHILD

And with such aggression concerning the welfare of the children by the benevolent State, how can a parent do anything but cooperate, lest they be accused of child neglect. As is with reporting child truants, busybodies have an outlet to report their neighbors for “child abuse” or “child neglect” based on baseless hunches and fancies. A child whose parents have no SSN cannot receive State medical benefit, and immunization shots not received by a child is grounds for expulsion from school, and the parents guilty of child truancy.

“If a child does not comply … with the requirements of this subsection, then the local school authority shall exclude that child from school until such time as the child presents proof of having had the health examination as required and presents proof of having received those required immunizations which are medically possible to receive immediately. During a child's exclusion from school for noncompliance with this subsection, the child's parents or legal guardian shall be considered in violation of Section 26‑1 and subject to any penalty imposed by Section 26‑10. (105 ILCS 5/27‑8.1)

Also, refusal to get a SSN and allow one’s child to be enrolled by some prude into the free school lunch program can be viewed by the busybodies at the school as neglect. A father without a SSN, and as a result is not working, is contrary to the “best interest of the child;” as would be noted by a public assistance case worker making periodic home inspections. A mother receiving inadequate state assistance because she chooses not to enroll in federally-funded programs that require a SSN would be considered so also. The family that homeschools may too be in great danger of statutory determined neglect of their child’s mental needs because the child is not socializing with his peers in the public school. And the parent who refuses his child the immunizations may seem a public health hazard to the administering physician. And so on and so forth.

“The Illinois Department of Children and Family Services shall, upon receiving reports made under this Act, protect the health, safety, and best interests of the child in all situations in which the child is vulnerable to child abuse or neglect, offer protective services in order to prevent any further harm to the child and to other children in the same environment or family, stabilize the home environment, and preserve family life whenever possible.” (325 ILCS 5/2)

"Neglected child" means any child who is not receiving the proper or necessary nourishment or medically indicated treatment including food or care not provided solely on the basis of the present or anticipated mental or physical impairment , oas determined by a physician acting alone or in consultation with other physicians or otherwise is not receiving the proper or necessary support or medical or other remedial care recognized under State law as necessary for a child's well‑being, or other care necessary for his or her well‑being, including adequate food, clothing and shelter;” (325 ILCS 5/3)

CONCLUSION: SSN’s ARE CAPITAL ASSET TAGS ASSIGNED TO CITIZENS

The Social Security program of the United States federal government, with the conspicuous assistance of the fifty states, has become the de facto national ID card. The states have surrendered valuable sovereignty to the federal government, by having its own state identification card or driver’s license serve as a rider to the application for the federal SSN. The federal government can never service the needs of a state’s citizens better than the state can, and for it to try is an unconstitutional usurpation of the states’ sovereignty. But the federal government, via economies of scale from its central management role, can increase the commerce within and between the states; and this has been accomplished via the SSN, which serves as a mere capital asset tag for what the American citizen has allowed himself to be reduced to; for the SSN is not only used for identification purposes, but to overtly influence state’s legislation while funding it via mandated grants with tax dollars obtained from its citizens via an unconstitutional direct income tax which requires a SSN for its implementation.

The SSA, the genesis of the SSN program, by simply administering the contribution collections and benefits distributions to SSN account holders, is responsible for a whopping 18% of the federal government’s budget. HHS, with its meddling within the family affairs of private American citizens residing in the states, is effectively the moral arm of Social Security, and serves as judge and jury over how their lives are ran. The HHS accounts for 20% of the federal government’s budget. Finally, the IRS, as proxy for the U.S. Treasury, through unconstitutional “direct” taxes on incomes, serves as the business arm of Social Security, and dictates what kind of living American’s can make via its meddling in the unemployment insurance programs of the states, and affectively defrauding employers into enrolling themselves, and their employees into the federal income tax program, which accounts for an overwhelming 89% of the entire revenues of the federal government. And seven times more of these direct income taxes come from individuals over the amounts received from artificially-bodied corporations. The three of these entities, the SSA, HHS, and the IRS, along with their state counterparts and accomplices, work in tandem as a cohesive unit of enslavement, and the SSN is the viscus to each of their individual and collective operations.

The Commissioners of the SSA and IRS, as well as the Secretaries for HHS and the U.S. Treasury, are not friends of the American people. Rather than the faithful execution of their office, they serve to perpetuate a fraud that has been in existence for far too long, and has had a profound effect on the citizens of this nation. The SSN program has in effect, reduced the fifty states from the status of a U.S. constitutionally protected component of the federal United States, to a territorial colony of the national United States subject to its exclusive jurisdiction. The SSN’s are administered to children as a part of the birth process, a feat not even a state’s identification card has purported to accomplish. All aspects of civil society require the SSN to be used as the lubricant required for its functioning, and the glue for its remaining intact. Those without a federal SSN are effectively banished from state society, and parents without a SSN for themselves or their children are at extreme risk of having their children stolen from them under the guise of protecting the children from abuse or neglect. As wards of the state, the children will eventually be given SSN’s, as they will be needed for their functioning within the State, and the SSA will be more than happy to supply new SSN’s for these untapped sources of investment, assuring itself of continual future unconstitutional direct income tax revenue streams from the citizens of the nation.
