Florida is rapidly becoming the go-to State for people fleeing the rapidly decaying mega urban centers in the U.S., and that includes some of the richest and most famous billionaires who have recently moved their residency to Florida, such as former President Donald Trump and Oracle founder Larry Ellison, among others.

Even Ukraine President and alleged billionaire Volodymyr Zelensky has a $35 million dollar mansion in South Florida, where he will undoubtedly retire to if the war in his country doesn’t go his way. (Source.)

And with Wall Street mega-bank criminals now starting their own virtual stock exchange, MEMX, it is probably only a matter of time before South Florida replaces New York’s Wall Street as the new residence of most of the world’s billionaires and bankers who can just work online while hitting the Florida beaches. (More on MEMX here.)

Tragically, one thing that seems to follow the rich and famous in this country is the problem of human trafficking, and specifically child sex trafficking, as even Jeffrey Epstein ran a major portion of his child sex trafficking operation through South Florida. (Source.)

As we have reported numerous times over the years, the #1 source for child trafficking in the United States is the corrupt child welfare program that funds foster care and adoptions in the U.S. You can learn more about this corrupt system of child trafficking that imperils all of the nation’s children every day on our Medical Kidnapping website.

Thanks to some good local reporting in Florida, many families who have had their children taken away from them illegally by the State of Florida are fighting back and suing the State of Florida, naming Florida Governor Ron DeSantis, Secretary of the Florida Department of Children and Families Shevaun Harris, Executive Director of the Florida Department of Health Dr. Joseph Ladapo, Bureau Chief of the Florida Department of Health Child Protection Team Patricia Armstrong, and Executive Director of the Florida Guardian ad Litem Program Attorney Dennis Moore as defendants in the case.

Katie LaGrone with WPTV Channel 5 in West Palm Beach reported on a lawsuit with multiple families suing Gov. DeSantis and the State of Florida for medically kidnapping their children back in June this year, and we covered her story then where she interviewed some of the family members who are plaintiffs in the case.

Here is the 8-minute video that WPTV produced about the alleged corruption happening in Florida where children are being kidnapped by the State of Florida:

Since that story broke in June, last month (September, 2022) Katie LaGrone reports that many other families in Florida have now contacted them, and there are now at least 22 families who have joined the lawsuit.

Three months after Investigative Reporter Katie LaGrone and photojournalist Matthew Apthorp were the first journalists to share a new lawsuit accusing Florida’s child welfare system of going out of its way to break families apart, 18 additional families have now joined the suit.

“People saw your story on the news. People said it happened to me,” attorney Valentina Villalobos with Community Law for Families & Children.

Since our initial story aired, Villalobos said her phone hasn’t stopped ringing.

“I can’t even answer my own phone right now, I need an assistant screening my calls,” she said in regards to the volume of calls she’s been getting from families sharing similar stories.

A total of 22 families now claim Florida’s Department of Children and Families, along with its child welfare partners including Florida’s governor, Florida’s Surgeon General and the head of the state’s Guardian Ad Litem Program, have all violated family rights by denying relatives custody of young family members who enter the state’s care.

And Katie LaGrone is not the only one in Florida who is reporting on this problem of corruption in the state child welfare program.

Dyan Neary, writing for The Cut, just published an investigative report about a medical kidnapping case in Pinellas County Florida.

What Happened to Maya – When a 10-year-old girl complained of mysterious pain, a doctor suspected child abuse. How far would she go to prove it?

This is another tragic story where a family innocently took their child to an emergency room, in this case the pediatric emergency room at Johns Hopkins All Children’s Hospital in St. Petersburg, Florida, and then found themselves in the middle of an investigation from a “Child Abuse Pediatrician” whose sole job is to find abuse in children.

This medical sub-specialty of “pediatrics” is thoroughly corrupt, and responsible for incarcerating literally tens of thousands of innocent parents over false allegations of abuse. We have written many articles exposing this corrupt profession in the medical system, and have written an entire book on the subject, which normally sells for $10.00 but is now available for free in the Healthy Traditions store here.

In the case of Maya Kowalski, Sally Smith, a doctor with more than 30 years of experience in “child-abuse pediatrics,” was called in. Some excerpts:

Smith is a doctor with more than 30 years of experience in child-abuse pediatrics. Virtually everyone at All Children’s — maybe even most medical providers in Pinellas County — regarded her as the doyenne of the field. She had spent so much time at the hospital that physicians knew to call her at the first indication of abuse or neglect, and they nearly always deferred to her judgment.

Early on Thursday, October 13, 2016, Smith filed a report chronicling Maya’s extensive medical history. Her formal diagnosis was Munchausen syndrome by proxy. The state quickly issued what is known as a shelter order, directing that Maya be kept in the hospital and forbidding her parents from seeing her. When a nurse entered Maya’s room to inform the family, Beata had already left for work and Jack was on the floor, cleaning up feces, because Maya was no longer in control of her bowels. “You have to leave now,” the nurse said, looking squarely at Jack. “Your daughter is in state custody.” As he walked out, Maya sat up in bed, calling out for her father.

That evening, Kirkpatrick sent a memo to a colleague. “I cautioned Dr. Smith about accusing a family member of criminal conduct as she moves forward with her investigation,” he wrote, noting that doing so “could result in needless and permanent harm to the child and family.” Separately, Hanna advised Smith that Munchausen by proxy was a common misdiagnosis in CRPS cases. (According to the Cleveland Clinic, there are “no reliable statistics” on the disorder, but one estimate is that 0.04 percent of child abuse cases reported annually are “related” to it.) The doctors’ warnings were not included in Smith’s report to the state, which urged that Maya be protected from her parents.

Smith, who retired this summer, tended to interpret cases aggressively. Children in Pinellas are removed from their homes at one of the highest rates of Florida’s 67 counties, and Smith said this is because the child-protection team she directed does “a more thorough, higher-quality job.” (Full article.)

Here is another story we covered involving Dr. Sally Smith and medical kidnapping in Florida from 2019:

USA Today Exposes Florida Doctor Medically Kidnapping Children and Destroying Lives

As we have previously reported, Florida Governor Ron DeSantis has no problem threatening families who do not agree with his views with having their children taken away from them by Florida’s Child “Protective” Services, weaponizing the State’s alleged authority to take children away from their parents for a wide variety of reasons that do not include physical abuse.

This past June, DeSantis criticized a “family friendly” drag show held at a gay bar in Dallas, Texas.

“That is totally inappropriate,” said DeSantis. “That is not something children should be exposed to.”

And while most parents in the U.S. would probably agree with the Governor on this issue, it is what he said next that should concern every parent in America who values parental rights.

When asked by reporters whether he would support proposed legislation from a Florida state representative that would punish parents who take their children to such performances, the governor said he has asked his staff to look into the idea.

“We have child protective statutes on the books,” the governor said. “We have laws against child endangerment.”

“It used to be kids would be off-limits. Used to be everybody agreed with that,” DeSantis continued. “Now it just seems like there’s a concerted effort to be exposing kids more and more to things that are not age appropriate.” (Source.)

Threatening parents who do not conform with a politician’s view about what constitutes being a good parent or not by having their children kidnapped by the State and put into the nation’s lucrative child trafficking network called “foster care” by government “child protection” agents, is something everybody should be againstregardless of your political views.

And while exposing children to sexual perversion is probably something that should be legislated against (but punish the parents, NOT the children by taking them away from their families!), what is worse, exposing a child to bad sexual morals, or trying to maim and kill them with a vaccine that the Governor’s own Surgeon General admits is dangerous to children and could kill them?

And yet, not only are such parents not being threatened by having their children taken away from them (which they should not!), there has been no action by the State of Florida to protect these children from their ignorant parents who foolishly follow the FDA and CDC advice on COVID vaccines and then end up with dead or permanently injured children.

In spite of this lawsuit and the exposure by some in the Florida media of widespread corruption in the Florida child welfare system, Governor DeSantis’s wife is recruiting more investigators to go on the state payroll to look for more children to put into the system, and they are recruiting these investigators from military veterans and former law enforcement.

First Lady Casey DeSantis announced a new state initiative to recruit military veterans to work for the Florida Department of Children and Families.

DeSantis said the “Continue the Mission” initiative aims to recruit veterans to become Child Protective Investigators (CPIs) for DCF, saying it’s a good use of their skills and may help give them purpose after serving.

DeSantis said there is a lot of turnover in the position because of how difficult the job can be.

“So what we wanted to do is provide an opportunity for our veterans to continue their service and to continue to serve our great children of this state. And so we are asking them to do that to sign up as CPIs,” DeSantis said.

Florida is home to 1.5 million veterans.

The first lady also said the state was looking to give opportunities to military spouses and former law enforcement officers. (Source. Update here.)

First Lady Casey DeSantis also announced recently that the State of Florida was giving away free government money to Foster and Adoptive homes who were taking care of other people’s children to “fight inflation.”

Casey DeSantis, Florida Department of Children and Families “on a mission” to aid foster and adoptive homes with one-time payment

First Lady Casey DeSantis this month announced that 59,000 Florida families in need will receive a one-time payment of $450 per child this summer, with foster and adoptive families as the focal point.

These funds — as part of the state’s Hope Florida – A Pathway to Prosperity initiative — will aid families affected by inflation, yet are preparing to send children back to school next month, according to a statement made by the Florida Department of Children and Families. The focus of foster and adoptive families is part of an expansion to the initiative to better provide “guidance for immediate and future family needs,” according to a statement from Gov. Ron DeSantis’ office.

“I am on a mission to make sure that no child in Florida goes without hope, happiness, and a home,” Casey DeSantis said in a Tampa ceremony launching the payment program on July 15. “That means doing everything we can to support those who have stepped up and welcomed these children into their homes, as well as local partners that are already lending families a helping hand.” (Source.)

But if you’re a family struggling with your own biological children and not part of the child welfare system, you don’t qualify.

The announcement was made in conjunction with Gov. DeSantis signing a $35.5 million budget to support those families, but to qualify, requirements must be met. The Florida resident must be a foster parent, a relative caregiver, a non-relative caregiver, be a part of a guardianship assistance program or be a family receiving Temporary Assistance for Needy Families cash assistance. (Source.)

How is this not “child trafficking,” when biological families who are struggling get no support from the State, but those taking care of other families’ children who have been taken away by the State, often illegally, get “free money?”

And this is a “conservative” state??

According to Business Insider, Governor DeSantis took this money from COVID-19 relief funds:

DeSantis uses federal COVID-19 relief funds to send nearly 60,000 Florida families a $450-per-child check to ‘offset the costs of rising inflation’

Report on seniors being medically kidnapped in Florida. Image source.

Florida is also a popular destination for seniors who retire to the state, or just reside in the state during the winter months from colder states as “snow birds.”

They are a big part of Florida’s economy, but sadly many of them are also medically kidnapped by the State through the “guardianship” program where all of their life savings are then seized by the medical system.

Again, thanks to some good local investigative reporting in Florida, this entire scam has also been exposed in Florida:

And let’s not forget the other big draw to Florida’s lucrative tourism industry: Disney World.

Disney Employees in Florida Arrested for Human Trafficking as Videos Appear Online Showing Top Disney Executives’ Desire to Sexualize Children with Transgender Teaching

So I end with the same question I started this article with: Has Florida become the top state in the U.S. for medical kidnapping and child trafficking?
