Guest Post: This Is What It Means To Be Free In America

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 flu symptoms.

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…”

Police take away baby This is what it means to be Free in America

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 Union.

Have you hit your breaking point yet? If not now, when?

Took their son to the hospital to be treated for flu symptoms....  First mistake....

Doctors, just like Nobel prize-winning economists, can get very offended when you question their judgement (God complex).  What ensued thereafter was the expressed power that such professionals in all their arrogance hold in our society.

I hope people remember the next generation will be 10x more complicit in this tyrranical killing spree.. the brainwashing at all levels of education is unbelievable.

Zer0head's picture

irony is that this was America when the story reads as if it were the old Soviet Russia

talk about a role reversal

the only reason they got junior back from the CPS  was it was set to become an international incident with the Russian consulate getting involved


CPS is all powerful sort of like when you are at the counter at immigration - a no mans land where they can do whatever the fuck they want


or how about this dude that was detained because he did not flush on the airplane


no really

Starve the state until the air is filled with the stench of the rotting apparatchik.

Sacramento County is going to be that much closer to bankruptcy. This story is in Sacramento and it involves Russian immigrants, what is the mob connection? Decent chance there is one.

cops doctors, teachers, courts, msm, non organic food...the main stream in this country is to be avoided at all costs

I was driving to the bank today to withdraw my monthly insult check, buy silver, F the banksters, etc.  Anyway, Beck was talking about his sister going to the Dr. recently and he did ask if there were guns in the home.  I knew this question was coming, now it is here.  My wife and daughters have been instructed to say no.  Then we'll find another doctor.  Our nation has indeed been 'Fundamentally changed", or fundamentally F'd.

Not all teachers are to be avoided.  My child is a teacher who loves the kiddos and they love her.  She would like to be able to teach, and not be the fostercaresocialworkerCPSpsychologistmommyetc all rolled into one.

for a bureaucrat it all comes down to one thing.  a days pay.  that and the wait to vest that coffee break into a pension.

In Revolutionary America, the people dealt with the oppressive government.

In Soviet America, the oppressive government deals with you!!!

We need more details about this incident because last time I took my child to the hospital, they told me that they will not do anything unless I sign a consent for treatment.

Just because we are not paranoid, it does not mean they are not out to get us. s/

i just reread the article carefully.  you're right, it reads like a sandy hook/boston marathon script. designed to provoke a response (hopefully violent).  none of it makes any sense.

The words "boundary violation" shuts them up, although it might possibly also be used to construe an answer in the affirmative.  


Then again, legal liability is something they know about.  In which case, there is this:

I'm pretty sure we're still allowed to fart as loud as we want in a crowded theater though.

Al Gorerhythm's picture

There are certain rules that one does not break. Farting audibly in a crowded theatre is one and the other that is a complete no-no is the small shower cubicle. The space shuttle another. Teararseist!

" My wife and daughters have been instructed to say no.  Then we'll find another doctor."

Good approach.  Personally, I'd wait a year, and then write a letter to the offending doctor and tell him exactly what you think of him and his exciting new role of Stooge for the Central State.  Personally, I'd make the letter polite, but include some veiled threatening language as well.....  Well, maybe not "threatening" exactly, but vaguely ominous.....

To all the Alex Jones haters, he has been talking about this for YEARS.  These types of assaults and kidnappings are daily occurrences. 

The one that really pissed me off was the one in Florida where the parents, the Hakkens (accused of smoking dope and attending an anti-government tea party event) had their two boys taken by CPS and given to the wife's parents.   The actual parents re-kidnapped their kids and sailed to Cuba to flee the USSA.  Now they are back and in jail.  Here is a link to some of the story:

What's more, what happens to these children when they are brought into the clutches of the system? They're probably lucky if they only get SSRIs shovelled into them.

Watch Rumsfeld get grilled about Dyncorp's involvement in child prostitution.

I read your post and decided I've just had my eyes farted upon.  

Take the off the bucket list.

AldousHuxley's picture

Nobel prize winners don't drive around maybachs acting like gods while state provides job protection like doctors who do it for the money.

But there are many stupid parents of far inferior judgement than doctors.

Doctors can lose license due to malpractice, shitty parents get tax deduction no matter how the child turns out.

pods's picture

It comes down to one simple question:

Whose children are they?

Aldous, what say you?

erg's picture

This MSNBC collectivist suggests that you do not own your own kids.

pods's picture

My wife shit a brick when I showed her that before.


Dr Benway's picture

You don't "own" your kids.

erg's picture

We only own ourselves. As it should be. And that's a difficult task for most in and of itself.

I bespeak the sinister nature of collectivism. I've heard it suggested that kids stay in school year-round as they are no longer needed on the farm. Extend the school day to ten hours. Hell, assign them all a bunk and they can just crash at the school.

More education is better for the children right?

buyingsterling's picture

Yes, you basically do own your kids, for all practical purposes (I have two girls). You're ultimately responsible for their upkeep and abandoning them is worse than abandoning 'regular property' - you can leave the keys in your car with the windows down on any MLK Blvd, but try leaving your kids there.

The flip side, of course, is that you can't do whatever you want with them, so they aren't 'property' in the real sense. But in that sense, there really is no such thing as property any longer: If you want to own anything of value there are conditions attached, like taxes, licensing, and mainenance. The only thing of value you can really own today, and do whatever you want with, is an unborn human being. You have a greater right to them as property than you do to your own body (suicide being illegal, abortion being venerated).

Ha, let us know how your prison term works out if your saying don't pay your taxes.  Their must be a better way than to allow them to ride roughshod while we slowly go broke, starve and then become incarcerated while we show them who has the power of the purse.  Great plan..

Rule #2: See rule #1.

cops are strangers.  you don't have to talk to them.  only one i free to go?

Do you know why I pulled you over?

I'd love to help you officer, but I have things to do, so can I go or will you be detaining me?

Where are you headed?

Say hi to millions on youtube oficer. Well I don't believe it can be deleted or confiscated, the video is already in the cloud.

It's happening here in Indiana too. A neighbor had their children removed by CPS because they refused some needless and expensive dental procedure on their daughter's baby teeth.

I'm guessing Medicaid was involved, both cases. If you agree to be a ward (slave) of the state, you shouldn't be surprised when you're treated like one.

That being said, Doctors, even Veterinarians, are lying crooks, these days. I took a cat to the Vet. for an abscess from a fight, and the clown starting talking about mammary cancer on a 2 yr old male! I couldn't believe my ears. You can't trust Doctors.

Medicaid was not involved in my neighbor's case.

Males actually do have rudimentary, underdeveloped mammary glands. Part of that appendage is a male's nipple. Cheers.

"Guns. Cops. Government bureaucrats. Courts. Kidnapping. A dysfunctional medical care system"

the new amrkn model of "family care" that includes "armed cops" taking direction from "government bureaucrats" herding everyone into a "dysfunctional medical care system" - particular emphasis on children/babies. . .

seriously dudes, have you not seen this coming, not at all??

with some team voting for pre-baby personhoods, how do you suppose THAT will be enForced?

all up in yer business, and it won't just be the wombs, everyBody is invited to this Party.

CONTROL, pre-cradle to grave.

"Nanny State" has real meaning. When the State decides to be nanny, it means it. It WILL be your nanny, your kids' nanny, your parent's nanny and you will do as you are told.

Does anyone doubt that the State...and I mean the good ole USA, 'Merikan State believes that it owns you, your property and your kids? This is what a century of progessivism gets you, regressivism.

Imagine if they had bought the kid a "big gulp". They'd probably be on death row.

Looks like they won't hate us for much longer.

Not that I trust dot gov -- I voted Ron Paul and nothing else.  But not one person is questioning the veracity of this story.  Maybe the doctors saw whip or burn marks on the kid.  Maybe he looked like he'd been molested sexually. 

Are we just taking Simon Black's word, as if he has no axe to grind?  Sad that there aren't more free thinkers on ZH.

Urban Redneck's picture

The case has been in the press in both the US and Russia, and in the courts, where CPS had the opportunity to present ANY and ALL of the evidence that CPS had gathered or could fabricate, and that didn't come up... ergo FUCK CPS (and their families too).
