Jonathan Irish appeared on the Alex Jones Show this evening and said his infant daughter, Cheyenne, was returned to him and his fiancé, Stephanie Taylor. The state of New Hampshire, citing neglect, had abducted the newborn at the Concord Hospital.
Irish expressed his gratitude for the return of his daughter but said he was not at liberty to divulge details on the release due to a court gag order.
Irish told Alex Jones that his name was confused with that of another man with a similar name. The second man apparently has a record of domestic abuse and violence.
A court affidavit stated Jonathan Irish’s association with the Oath Keepers as one of the primary reasons the child was taken. “The Division became aware and confirmed that Mr. Irish associated with a militia known as the Oath Keepers and had purchased several different types of weapons, including a rifle, handgun and taser,” the affidavit states.
The Oath Keepers was founded in March of 2009 in in Lexington, Massachusetts. The nonprofit organization advocates that its members, who are current and former U.S. military and law enforcement officers, uphold the Constitution of the United States should they be ordered to violate it. The Oath Keepers organization is not a militia as the court affidavit and corporate media insist.
After Cheyenne was abducted by New Hampshire’s Division of Children, Youth and Families, authorities prevented Jonathon Irish from seeing his child. Authorities cited “security threats” as the reason for blocking visitation without explaining precisely what those threats were. Irish, his fiancé Stephanie and Oath Keepers founder Stewart Rhodes appeared on the Alex Jones Show on October 11 to discuss this violation of basic visitation rights.
On Friday, October 8, the FBI sent bomb-sniffing dogs into Concord Hospital to intimidate people who had gathered to protest against the snatching of a baby by the DCYF.
On October 13, Stephanie Taylor voiced concerns when she discovered blood in her baby’s diaper during a supervised visit at the at a Strafford County administration building. After authorities determined there was “no indication of any abuse,” the child was returned to foster care.
Will Bunch, writing for the Soros funded Media Matters for America, led a corporate media campaign to demonize Irish and characterize as a “bizarre right-wing campaign” the effort to have the child returned to its parents. Bunch writes that “the evidence is overwhelming that the girl was taken from Irish and the mother Stephanie Taylor at the hospital for the only reason that the government should take that extreme step: To ensure the safety of an otherwise helpless child.”
Bunch’s assertion that CPS agencies protect children is at odds with the record. As the late Nancy Schaefer has documented, “child protection services” around the country have a record corruption and are often detrimental to the health and well-being of children. CPS agencies often act as legalized kidnapping services.
Now that the court has admitted that the child was taken in error and Jonathan Irish is in fact not an abusive father and the authorities had either confused or deliberately associated Irish with the behavior of another individual, Mr. Bunch and Media Matters should immediately apologize for slandering Irish, Taylor, and Alex Jones.
Media Matters, however, will likely not apologize or set the record straight because this obviously conflicts with its agenda to demonize the growing patriot movement and portray constitutionalist groups like Oath Keepers as paranoid right-wing extremists.
