If you don’t have control over your own money, then you don’t have control over your life. Narcissists want to control the people around them. Their lack of empathy means that they need to make people dependent on them. This may be presented as kind and caring, but that is not the true motive. This is just manipulative posturing. This desire for control extends to their children.
Narcissistic parents will teach their children inaccurate information about money. They do not want their children to be financially literate because that would make them less dependent on their parents.
“WE’RE GOING TO TAKE HER DOWN AND TAKE EVERYTHING FROM HER!”was the chilling announcement made by my ex’s lawyer #6, Meg Jackson outside Judge Alfred Levinson’s courtroom #106, Rolling Meadows, Cook County Chicago. This evil cabal bullied and tortured my child and me, fulfilling that sinister promise. Later, she conveniently changed her name to “Mary Elizabeth” and moved her practice to Lake County after I exposed her corruption, along with that of child rep Natalie Koga, Judge Levinson, and court vendors Dr. Jonathan Gamze & Dr. Daniel P. Fisher on this site. Doreen Ludwig, herself a victim, succinctly dissects the slick paint by numbers playbook used over and over again by these soul-less vampires and parasites:

MYRTLE BEACH, SC (WMBF) – A Horry County man is in custody for fraudulently transferring almost half a million dollars to himself from an estate account for which he represented.
South Carolina Law Enforcement Division (SLED) charged Luther Allen Barefoot, 60, of Conway, with two counts of breach of trust with fraudulent intent for the value of $10,000 or more.
According to the arrest warrants, Barefoot was appointed as a personal representative for an estate in November 2016. As the estate’s representative, Barefoot opened a checking account for the estate at Anderson Brothers Bank.
On Sunday, August 1, 2021, over one hundred mothers submitted a formal complaint to the United Nations Commission on the Status of Women denouncing the United States Government, and the states within for systematic human rights violations waged against women and children throughout the family court systems in the country. The Complaint alleges human rights violations that include systematic gender bias, discrimination on the basis of sex, and facilitation of physical, sexual, financial, legal, and emotional abuse of women and children.The Complaint was submitted by advocacy groups One Mom’s Battle and Custody Peace with over one hundred women throughout the United States joining in the Complaint.
Through personal letters submitted with the Complaint, these brave women provided firsthand accounts of their experience suffering injustices and human rights violations in family court.The Claim submitted to the UN documents disturbing trends throughout family courts in the U.S. including a failure to recognize coercive control tactics as domestic violence warranting court intervention, the tendency of judges to discredit mothers’ child abuse allegations particularly when the father alleges parental alienation as a counterclaim, the weaponization of the family court system itself by an abuser as a means to harass and control a domestic violence victim, punishment of women who raise child safety and abuse concerns by stripping them of custody rights, and judges’ bias towards and unfavorable treatment of women who resist shared parenting with an ex-intimate partner who abused them and/or their child, often leading to a dismissal of these women as simply angry, emotional or crazy.

Britney Spears Finally Has Her Own Attorney. Petition For Removal Of Her Father As Conservator Filed.
At age 39, after 13 years of an abusive, exploitative Conservatorship, Britney Spears finally has her own attorney. Matthew Rosengart said in documents filed in Los Angeles Superior court on Monday that the current legal arrangement “has grown increasingly toxic and is simply no longer tenable.” Here is the filing:
On July 28, from 6:00-8:00 ET, we will be presenting our 7th free monthly ‘Judi’s Room’ in the spirit of Judi Chamberlin who dedicated her life to organizing for human rights. This is a virtual event. Pre-registration is required HERE.
Judi’s Room is a partnership of MindFreedom International and I Love You Lead On.
Why are we discussing the following topic?
Conservatorship/Guardianship: Protecting Vulnerable Individuals or Exploitation?
Brittany Spears leaked public testimony HERE on how she continues to be mistreated has brought much needed attention to the abuses rampant in the guardian and conservator system. She has been stripped of her rights by a complex conservatorship which treats her as a money-making object and denies her personhood. People with disabilities, as well as the elderly are too easily taken advantage of under the false principle that it is “for their own good.” Anyone can be vulnerable. The presenters will describe the control that guardians have and will engage in dialogue with attendees on what can be done to change a system that exploits those who are vulnerable.
As with all previous Judi’s Room meetings, a panel of experts will share their perspectives, followed by a facilitated discussion.

An Albuquerque married couple who pleaded guilty in 2019 but then failed to appear for sentencing in an $11 million fraud case involving a firm that provided guardianship and other services to people with special needs now face years in prison.By Associated Press|July 16, 2021, at 12:55 p.m.
ALBUQUERQUE, N.M. (AP) — An Albuquerque married couple who pleaded guilty in 2019 but then failed to appear for sentencing in an $11 million fraud case involving a firm that provided guardianship and other services to people with special needs now face years in prison.
A federal judge on Thursday sentenced Susan K. Harris to 47 years in prison and William S. Harris to 15 years and also ordered them to pay restitution to victims.
Susan Harris, 74, was president of Ayudando Guardians Inc. and William Harris, 60, worked as a guardian.
U.S. District Judge Martha Vazquez said the couple’s criminal conduct left many former clients destitute and homeless.
Susan Harris pleaded guilty to conspiracy, mail fraud, aggravated identity theft, money laundering and conspiracy to commit money laundering. William Harris pleaded guilty to conspiracy to defraud the United States and to commit money laundering.
I shouldn’t be forced to publish the legal rights of a Trust Beneficiary on the internet because of an ex-husband’s interference in Son receiving copy of the Trust. But here it is. It’s a crime to interfere with a Trust Beneficiary’s legal rights.
Trust Beneficiaries have the right to the document itself! And they have all the other rights listed blow. (At the bottom, there is a link to the new Illinois Trust code.)
Payment. Current beneficiaries have the right to distributions as set forth in the trust document.
Right to information. Current and remainder beneficiaries have the right to be provided enough information about the trust and its administration to know how to enforce their rights.
Right to an accounting. Current beneficiaries are entitled to an accounting. An accounting is a detailed report of all income, expenses, and distributions from the trust. Usually trustees are required to provide an accounting annually, but that may vary, depending on the terms of the trust. Beneficiaries may also be able to waive the accounting.
Remove the trustee. Current and remainder beneficiaries have the right to petition the court for the removal of the trustee if they believe the trustee isn’t acting in their best interest. Trustees have an obligation to balance the needs of the current beneficiary with the needs of the remainder beneficiaries, which can be difficult to manage.
End the trust. In some circumstances, if all the current and remainder beneficiaries agree, they can petition the court to end the trust. State laws vary on when this is allowed. Usually, the purpose of the trust must have been fulfilled or be impossible.
To be absolutely clear, the terms of my Father’s Trust are that neither myself or my ex-husband can touch my Son’s money that was left to him by my Father. Neither I, or my ex-husband are allowed to be involved in the distribution of my Son’s money. His money is to be administered by the bank trustee ONLY, Citizens State Bank of Lena, Illinois, Trust Department.
I have reason for concern that my ex-husband may have tried to interfere with my Son’s communication with the bank trustee, because of how enraged he became when I mailed my Son a copy of my Dad’s Trust with a letter trying to give my Son the money I’ve set aside for him.
He has a well-documented history of intercepting & aggressively interfering w/ communications to my Son from family members and friends, and issuing threats.
He has also caused property damage to people trying to communicate with my Son.
My ex-husband should just get a life already. Or go back to where he came from before all his felony fraud finally catches up with him.
?WHY? would my ex-husband care if I sent my Son a copy of the Trust that he isa legal beneficiary of? It is his legal right to have this document, AND an accounting of the Trust from the Trust Department. My ex-husband should WANT our Son to have a copy of this document, a full accounting of the Trust, and to communicate with the bank Trusteeregarding his own money.
We are concerned for my Son’s well-being, his financial freedom, and his personal freedom in general. My Son can call me any time, night or day, I don’t care if it’s 2am and he needs me, I will drop whatever I’m doing, I don’t care if I’m sleeping – he can call me at 815-242-2387, Google Voice. My Son can write me at P.O. Box 143, Galena, IL 61036, or he can call me and I will have a car sent to pick him up immediately no matter where he is. My Son is not alone. He is loved and he is important for himself, not because he’s someone’s cash cow.
And if my ex-husband and his friends want to try stalking & threatening me again, I’ll just publish all his sick, disgusting crap for the world to see like I did the last time. After all, bullies are such cowards and sunlight really is the best disinfectant.
We are also concerned because of my ex-husband’s well documented history of felony fraud:
