Authorities targeting Americans with traditional, rural lifestyles.
Police seized ten children from an “off grid” homeschool family in Kentucky on Wednesday after receiving an anonymous tip about the family’s traditional lifestyle.
The nightmare story began when sheriff’s officers set up a blockade around Joe and Nicole Naugler’s rural property before entering the premises. Eight of the kids were out with their father but Nicole and two of her oldest children were at home. Nicole attempted to drive away but was subsequently stopped and arrested for resisting (attempting to prevent officers from taking her two boys away).
The sheriff then demanded Joe Naugler turn over the other eight children by 10am the next day or face felony charges, an order with which he complied.
“They are an extremely happy family,” said family friend Pace Ellsworth, who asserts that the Nauglers were targeted because of their “back to basics life” and their decision to homeschool their children.
Friends reported no concerns about how the children were being treated by the parents, who follow an educational model called “unschooling” where the children decide their own curriculum based on the subjects that interest them and what their strengths are.
“This is the natural way to live,” said Ellsworth. “It’s actually a growing movement. They want to have a personal education and not a factory education. They are completely open about their life. Everyone is learning by living. They are all extremely intelligent.”
The family’s Facebook page – entitled “My Blessed Little Homestead,” is a charming testament to their way of life. The Naugler children are obviously living a blissful “free range” lifestyle amongst 26 acres of land in Breckinridge County.
“They frequently post pictures and videos of their children, animals and their off-grid life,” reports Off the Grid News. “A May 5 post showed a video of a toddler, Mosiah, learning to walk. An April 24 post showed a happy family, gathering around a campfire, roasting marshmallows.”
The family have set up a GoFundMe page to try and raise money for legal expenses.
A website for the family spells out their plight with the heart-wrenching words; “This Kentucky family of 12 people, 6 dogs, 2 farm cats and a few random farm animals was just torn apart. Their crime: Living a simple, back to basics life.”
This shocking story once again illustrates how families attempting to simply get on with their lives in a traditional manner are being treated as extremists by other Americans, snitched on, and targeted by authorities.
Meanwhile, in New Jersey, a WND report highlights how parents were interrogated by a CPS caseworker who questioned Christopher Zimmer and his wife Nicole, “on everything from their son’s homeschool education to questions about vaccines and guns in the house.”
Michelle Marchese aggressively demanded to enter the property after asserting Christopher Zimmer Jr. was not getting a “proper education.” Police subsequently arrived and allowed Marchese to enter the home before conducting a warrantless search.
The Zimmers are now suing the CPS for $60 million in a case before the U.S. District Court in Trenton.

COMMENT FROM THE (RE)POSTER:
Another fine example of the control-freaks’ agenda: Control all life by out-lawing Nature and all things good! There are more than enough wide-awake folks seeing what is happening with our “modern society”, and it is not good. This also goes in line with the various municipalities’ and states’ onerous laws against home gardens, powering off-grid, and even home well-water.
Some other fine examples of a “society” going way off the deep end:
OUTLAWING RAINWATER COLLECTION:
LAWS AND CODES AGAINST HOME-(VEGETABLE-)GARDENS:
LAWS AND CODES AGAINST “OFF-GRID” LIVING (INCLUDING FROM RUNNING WATER AND ELECTRICAL UTILITIES):
So WHERE do we go from here? ? ?
Those of us who are trying to recreate the Pagan lifestyle and experiences, are having our basic Natural rights attacked left and right. I have written and re-posted several articles on problems with our modern-day “pro-vaccine-mentality”, and just how dangerous to our collective (and especially, individual) health is! Yet, there are many separate moves in the states (and the federal level) to completely do away with our choice to NOT “partake” of this thing called “modern medical marvels of medicine”. Hell! The UNITED STATES OF AMERICA is the ONLY country that refuses to inform the average grocery consumer of what’s in our food and toiletries!
Are we truly a FREE SOCIETY in these UNITED STATES? ? ?
When are WE, as Pagans, Naturalists, and all others who are concerned about our growing health problems, going to collectively protect what little in the name of rights we have left? ? ? It is waaaaay past time to put a complete stop to all of the buy-outs, payola, and all forms and causes of BRIBES that simply sell off the remainder of our basic rights to existence.
I want to here from YOU, my Brothers and Sisters! PLEASE!
Speak up and cogitate some ideas on how we all could come together and truly change this! (All comments from elsewhere around the world are ALSO WELCOME and encouraged.)
