The immigration law firm that is helping me is building a humans rights case.
Each time I give them an answer, the answer hasn't been good enough. On the other hand, I just remembered one of the core reasons why I want to be here instead of somewhere else:
Mencap's relationship services.
I recognize that relationships are hard and challenging. I have watched one of my cousins go through a divorce and a brutal custody battle to be a father to his kids. My own sister had to deal with her narcissistic husband. She had to temporarily move back in with me and my parents to send a message that his behavior was not okay.
I know marriages are not like a never-ending honeymoon. They come with hardships.
It is so important to me to have this kind of support that I am willing to leave my country and family behind.
Are there other services or organizations that help people with disabilities with the relationships, or marriages they forge?
What's so good about the Mencap support? In what situation would you need it?
I've mentioned the Outsiders Club before, which is about disabled people (including autistic people) finding sexual and romantic partners. (SHADA is an international group of people working for the same aims). Then there's Enhance the UK (Mik Scarlett & co), and on the web I see Disability Horizons, but that may be publications more than support. I get the impression there are actually more services in Scandinavian and Benelux countries.
Is this under the UN 'Convention on the Rights of Persons with Disabilities' again? Is article 23 broad enough to require disability-specific relationship services where there are services not specific to disabled people?.
The goal is to be prepared for a domestic partnership.
Quite frankly, I am trying to be diplomatic about going about my immigration matter without implicating that the UK is not abiding by the Conventions on the Rights of Persons with Disabilities.
The easiest jobs to get the disabled are entry level positions. The kind of jobs that the UK is defining as acceptable for entry has adversely discriminated the disabled. The 3rd and 4th core provisions of the CRPD says:
My goal is to open the doors of immigration to the disabled using the CRPD. My mission is leading me to the United Nations. I'd rather help the UK realize its errors before taking it to the UN. This may have to be my pitch to stay.
When you put the Conventions on the Rights of Persons with Disabilities and the UK's immigration laws side by side, you have no idea how much the immigration laws are in conflict.
I just happen to be wanting to immigrate when immigration is a big topic right now. There is no better time than now to get countries to recognize the disabled into immigration laws.
I am bringing NeurOptimal with me. I'm going to get wellbeing education to be accredited with the NHS as a wellbeing coach with a focus on mental health and wellbeing. I'm planning on contributing to NAS and Mencap. I'm going to contribute to an awareness for music composed by the disabled. I end up helping those who cross paths with me. I give and give and give and I give, no matter where I go.
Why don't I do that where I am from?
Why is the Home Office turning me away?
I am not going to be a burden to the NHS because I am extremely healthy and don't use conventional medicine. I want to bring what my family has for healthcare here.
In effect, I will be helping a populace that has an overburdened healthcare system.
Why is the Home Office turning away a future I want to bring to healthcare?
The most important asset is me.
I would love that my immigration case focuses more on what I want to achieve instead about why I want to immigrate.
You will need to prove that you face persecution if you return to the USA. That’s not going to happen. I would suggest that if you are paying a lawyer, you are wasting your money. Sorry to be blunt.
Actually, that is very easy to do. All I have to do is publicly denounce Trump, cite facts that investigative journalistic have reported, and do what I can to fight Trump. I'll get death threats from Trump supporters and create the necessity that my personal safety opens an asylum case for me. Look at what happened to LeBron James when he called the President a "bum." It's that easy for me to create persecution. It's not worth destroying my life at the same time.
The political atmosphere in the United States can be described as a civil war. I really want to file asylum so I can get away from the United States for that matter. I'm getting overwhelmed by the information. It is really too much information for me. Unfortunately, how asylum works does not apply to what I am experiencing. My case and story is where immigration and disability fails.
My Asperger's syndrome makes knowledge a burden to me. I have to create action. I can't sit on the sidelines and watch the United Kingdom create their own economic mess. I can't do nothing while the United States has deregulated their banks, create an imaginary trade war, and privatize the federal reserve. All three of those are hallmark causations of the Great Depression. What happens when both the United States and the U.K. implode roughly around the same time?
Returning to my country is the last thing I need. I will succumb to the burden of my knowledge. Russia influenced the BREXIT vote. Russia influenced the United States 2016 presidential election. The Mueller probe is going to claim its prize, but will there be the political will be there to undo the damage that the Republicans and Trump have done?
One of my agendas is to organize nations to get the United States attention to get the banks regulated again and end the privatization of the federal reserve. It is very important to get those back in place. Every passing month or year, the economic collapse of the United States is imminent. How can I help that without being a tiny voice within a nation with too many political voices right now? From London, I can coordinate with the World Bank Organization along with politicians to organize nations and try and correct the course of the United States.
It is public knowledge that Russia is influencing elections and votes across the world. The BREXIT vote is another vote Russia has influenced. Russia benefits from the destabilized EU without the support of the United States and the U.K. The U.K. is no different than the United States to keep going through with BREXIT with mounting evidence that Russia influenced the vote. Why is BREXIT still happening?
Put these two together: a collapsed United States and a UK economic catastrophe. How many businesses will go out of business? The stock market is very reactionary. The British pound and Euro are going to take a hit. A very weak United States will devalue the American dollar. A lot of money, livelihoods, and retirements are going to be lost when these events come to pass.
I have two choices: I can withdraw all of my money from my accounts, bury it in a chest, and go live off the land and wait it out.
I can live; fight to restore normalcy to the world.
Nowhere is safe from the economic disaster that is looming on the horizon. I'm doing something. I am creating action. The first step is enabling my stay. From there, I'll work on creating my life here in the UK and networking to help BREXIT and return economic normalcy in the United States by coordinating with the WBO.
You can call me crazy, but I am reading about what the United States is doing itself economically and the ongoing conversation of BREXIT. I am not someone who only sits and watches from the sideline. You can say, "Well, stop doing that." It's not so simple. Ignorance is not a solution. I care. I have made the choice to fight for everyone's economic wellbeing.
I'm not convinced you fully understand how the NHS works with regards to your plans to become approved by them with the NeurOptimal programme and Wellbeing coach ideas. It will not happen.
Your posts read like you are a one man "Rescue Mission" with all the theories but no idea how to actually work with the agencies creating the percieved problems.
There is also the charity Relate that focuses on relationship, couples and marriage counsellling in the UK.
Hope the following will be taken as constructive feedback.

OK, I can relate to that. See the reason for my user name.
Dfactor said:You can call me crazy
Actually I'm not sure I can under the forum rules I wouldn't anyway, but I would qualify the scepticism already expressed by others. I'm not an expert in immigration law, and the UK Courts have made some surprising decisions, often based on the HRA, and sometimes less surprising decisions in cases brought by well-resourced individuals (for example, Gina Miller). But from what little I do know, I'm confused by your ambition.
Dfactor said:going about my immigration matter without implicating that the UK is not abiding by the Conventions on the Rights of Persons with Disabilities
I presumed your mention of that convention was to point out that the USA was not abiding by the CRPD, you couldn't challenge that in US courts, and so needed to move somewhere with an Equality Act and services for autistic people that aren't based on aversion therapy. If you could get backing of an organisation like Disability Rights UK or Liberty for your case, you would be seen as more credible.

So are millions of other people. What makes you any different, or an 'anomaly' in the words of your other thread? You do seem to me to be concerned ('obsession' was your own word) with a wide diversity of topical news headlines. However, those headlines do not represent the state of the world, only short-term changes deemed newsworthy by journalists.
You're far from the only 'cultural refugee' (my phrase) from the US living in the UK. Such people I know who have gained 'UK citizenship' have done so through a work visa, working for several years, and then getting indefinite right to remain. (I suppose there may be fewer people doing so now that won't confer rights of an EU citizen.) If you've been following headlines, I'm sure you've come across the phrase 'hostile environment' to refer to treatment of nationals of other countries.
Dfactor said:I am not someone who only sits and watches from the sideline.
Commendable in principle, but action has to be fully informed to do good. If you're at risk of information overload, you have to do what most people do, and Aspies are particularly good at, which is specialising in one area of expertise. The news does not constitute 'one area'.

Do you bring detailed knowledge of Basel III implementation in the US banking sector? If so, that could help your case for a work visa as a highly-skilled migrant. In London, you will be still be 'a tiny voice within a nation with too many political voices'. I've asked several questions of MPs or bankers at public or semi-public events (my own MP not being as responsive as they should), and despite me thinking them strategic, I'd be lucky if they had any effect. It's a never-ending task wherever you are.
Dfactor said:Nowhere is safe from the economic disaster that is looming on the horizon.
I'd agree governments under-reacted to the '2008 financial crisis' and there are probably other 'crashes' coming. However, in my opinion, 'economic disaster' is a cultural epiphenomenon of deeper things in the real world that don't make the headlines as often. Why was there a commodity price spike immediately before the 2008 crash? Why has world GDP growth been falling decade-on-decade since the 1960s? There are and should be limits. There is 'systemic risk' from outside 'the economy' and at at least Mark Carney recognises that to an extent.
Cassandro said:Why has world GDP growth been falling decade-on-decade since the 1960s?
I don't know about the years before the 1980s, but what changed during the 1980s is Ronald Reagan and trickle-down economics.
Trickle-down economics is an economic theory that legitimatizes giving tax cuts to the rich so that it trickles down to the poor. To me, that makes absolutely no sense at all. It's like saying you can grow a tree from its branches and leaves. A tree grows from its roots. Everyone job cut and business going out of business is one less root to support the tree. In order to correct that, economics need to be practiced trickle-up instead of down, which implies creating jobs and paying workers more money.
You know what, I got it. Global GDP has been going down since the 1960s due to technological advancements to reduce the cost of labor. When you reduce the amount of labor to produce a product, less people are needed to run the business. People are who fuel an economy. The less people that have money, the fewer who get to spend money.

I managed to find Inclusion International by the end of May. I have been in touch with them ever since, however the organization seems to be ignoring me in the past couple months.
I have visited and called Disability Rights UK. I probably just need to make a phone call and open a case with Disability Rights UK since Inclusion International isn't responding to my phone calls or emails. Quite simply, I just want the UK to abide by the Conventions on the Rights of Persons with Disabilities. It's the only thing that is going to enable me anyways.
I found someone to get Wellbeing coaching from. When I read through her program, it explained that I would end up getting certified with certain programs that are affiliated with the NHS.
I just want to stop obsessing about my country and start focusing on my life.

That's because I am focusing on what is going to enable me to stay here first. I have to start with me. If I put all those theories first before me, I'm not working on own immigration. Once I'm here to stay, I'll start working on networking. I know it is going to take a lot more than just one person; its finding the organizations that work on stuff like that. The WBO, World Bank Organization, has publicly stated that the United States is headed in the direction of triggering a Great Depression. I'm going to have to start there anyways.

I specified 'world' GDP, not US. Yes, neoliberalism is an abdication of responsibility by government that allows inequality to increase, Not what I was driving at.

That's pretty much a Marxian account of 'recessions'. Also not what I was getting at. It was in the 1960s that the PM here spoke of 'the white heat of technology', where efficiency gains had to be balanced by 'growth'. It didn't work. 'GDP' and 'the economy' are fictions, but 'existing' within a real world where humans farm, mine, use energy, produce waste. There are rightly limits to the speed at which that can be done in a sustainable and beneficial way. 'Bubbles' of course lose sight of those limits and have to come down to earth, but they are just that, froth, within the overall picture. The ecological 'disaster' is what should concern people IMNSHO.

Do they have any track record of winning in UK courts?
Dfactor said: I just want the UK to abide by the Conventions on the Rights of Persons with Disabilities.
OK. Still not clear on how they're breaching it in relation to you, and it sounds like you haven't managed to convince others much either.
Dfactor said:It's the only thing that is going to enable me anyways.
I'd question that assumption for your own sake. Best of luck to you, but I wouldn't bet a penny.
We live in a world where people are captivated by our devices, whether it be our cell phone, tablet, or laptop. World of Warcraft sucked a lot out of me. I came out of it before social media really hooked everyone else. It disconnected me because I had spent enough time of my life disconnected from human interaction.
I should be a prisoner to my devices like everyone else. I should still be addicted to video games. I should not want to go anywhere, yet here I am wanting to immigrate and live a little.
I am having to fight just to "live a little." I have to fight to make my own choices, at least that is covered by the CRPD:
I'm a musician. If I find a band to tour the world with, how am I supposed to live in the UK at the same time? Life is an adventure.
Besides, how am I supposed to have my own private business and tour the world performing music at the same time? The stage is my home. I have described everything that I mentioned to create an income. The whole point is so I don't have to take a job which UK's immigration is adamantly about - to not take a job someone else can work.
Essentially, I am singing the same song how immigration is being practiced: we want a British national to get our jobs. Oh yeah, about the musician job. Bands aren't registered to issue certificates of sponsorship. I do not fit perfectly how immigration is being practiced.
I have understood that I do not fit perfect into UK's immigration laws for years. It's not going to stop me from doing what I want to do. Moreover, how am I going to get the UK to understand my case of immigration without getting over here and get the chance to learn from me. I have been pushed to the point where I had to jump.
Now, I have 8 weeks left to get a visa approved. I want to go to the Home Office, but I really don't know what will really happen. Simply by coming out of the closet and revealing my intentions are not for tourism, I can be deported. So, how do I communicate with who it matters most that my immigration case - and anyone with a disability - is an anomaly to immigration?
