Deanna Lynn (Tarrow) Kloostra, Grand Rapids, Michigan
Deanna is a mother of three children who has been through a contentious divorce and custody battle. For this article, ATW is not discussing the details of Deanna’s custody case, but rather focusing on her involvement with American Mothers Political Party (AMPP) and the allegations surrounding their battle with Bill Windsor of Lawless America. What this article focuses on is that Deanna claims to be a victim of domestic violence who lost custody of her children due to family court abuse, she sought support from AMPP and with their support, engaged in online bullying and ran for political office under the guise of family court reform.
Deanna and AMPP: AMPP was originally created to be an actual political party NOT an advocacy group–Deanna joined their ranks around 2009. Deanna began her political aspirations when she ran for Kent County Commissioner in 2012 (lost by a landslide) and is now running for the 2018 State Senate.
Tactics used by Deanna that are also common to the members of AMPP’s “internet posse” include the following…
-Deanna has created attack facebook/websites (targeting not only her ex and his attorney but also stating that the judge, guardian ad litem, the supervised visitation center, the court appointed supervisor are participating in a conspiracy against her).
In April 2009, the original circuit court judge assigned to Deanna’s case, Judge Patricia Gardner, requested to be relieved of responsibility, stating that she “has been the target of abuse and criticism by the parties or others,” and that the parties’ “focus … has been the harassment of the judge rather than on the best interest of the children.” Judge Gardner specifically mentioned the websites created by Deanna as part of the “abuse and criticism”. Deanna counters by stating that the Court withheld contact from her children to force her (Deanna) to shut down her websites.
Other AMPP members (Claudine Dombrowski is infamous for this) have created attack websites and social media pages to target named “enemies” and use intimidation and harassment as a means to get what they want.
-Deanna has used her daughter’s picture and name, posting information about her daughter on the internet without little regard to her daughter’s privacy or safety. Deanna used her daughter’s picture on the “Elect Deanna Kloostra” facebook page to gain sympathy votes. Other AMPP members, including Maria Melinn, have similarly exploited their own children to further their personal agenda.
-Deanna has joined AMPP in attacking Bill Windsor. In fact, the conspiracy that AMPP invents about Bill Windsor is similar to the conspiracy its members accuse family court of participating in. These grandiose fantasies of being the persecuted victim break down when you look at the actions and words of AMPP and it’s members who reveal themselves to be bullies and abusers. Victim of abuse and professional advocates do not engage in harassment, libel, threats, attack websites and criminal behavior–abusers do. The documentation ATW has posted and will continue to post will clearly demonstrate this.
(Claudine Dombrowski posts links to hateful websites about Bill Windsor across the internet. )
Through AMPP, Deanna met her bestie Maria (Bauer) Melinn–former President of AMPP. Deanna founded an “abuse advocacy” groups named for her daughter, Abused Swan. Maria also works with Deanna on Abused Swan, they court watch and socialize together.

Deanna & Lawless:
In summer 2012, Deanna began to work closely with Bill Windsor on the Kent County Lawless Facebook page (updated). DLater, Deanna filmed her own testimony with Bill. At the time Maria Melinn was also closely associated with Lawless. Both have since have been removed from Lawless amid controversy that resulted in attempts to destroy the Lawless documentary, and the credibility of Bill Windsor. Why would two supposed protective moms want to destroy a documentary film project that could give voice to the plight of domestic violence victims fleeing abuse only to encounter further abuse in family court? Why aren’t these moms willing to work with Bill and resolve differences in a professional way? Clearly these abuser moms are using Lawless to gain attention, and win sympathy posing by as victims and then furthering their own selfish interests (in the case of Deanna, that would be her political career)..but is there something bigger at stake?
SO WHAT WENT WRONG???
Deanna and her supporters (which once included AMPP and the Joeys) want you to believe that she is the victim of Bill Windsor, who attacks protective mothers and puts their lives in danger. Deanna would have you believe that Bill Windsor just kicked her out of Lawless, after she slaved on the project, for no reason other than he hates women. But is this true?? AMPP has not provided any credible evidence to back up their claims; they manipulate sympathy and elicit an emotional response so supporters will set aside reason and logic. If no one is questioning AMPP’s outrageous claims (or has been intimidated into silence) or demanding proof, the Attack Moms are unopposed, they can do whatever they want. This is why it is so important that the Mother’s Movement and its professionals pay attention to what is happening within their own ranks, AMPP and other abusers like them need to be held accountable, there should be no place for abusers (even female abusers) working alongside victims in the Movement.
Taking the victim role, Deanna claims that Bill falsely accused her of stealing a password that he (Bill) must have lost and then kicked her out of Lawless for no reason. HOWEVER this story fails to mention that Deanna was attacking Bill Windsor, and Lawless BEFORE the incident with the password. In fact, it seems Bill was unaware that the wolves were circling around Lawless because Deanna was attacking Bill online at a time that she was working with Lawless. So this story about Bill attacking protective moms is just another lie from the abuser moms.
Jan 20, 2013: Lorraine Tipton aka Rainy68 creates a video called “The Pie Man Floateth” mocking The Lawless America documentary and depicting Bill as Hitler. Joining in the nasty comments are Claudine Dombrowski, Diane G (Gochin) and Kimberly W (Wigglesworth)—all who have claimed to be victims then went on to attack and harass Bill and Lawless supporters.
Deanna Kloostra comments: “Deanna Kloostra 4 months ago
I was laughing so hard I almost wet my pant! I do not think most people will get the whole thing. The sausage was the best part for me. ” I should have just ate sausage!” Thanks for making such a funny video with leaving out names etc..I am sure the video will make it into the courts some how
Look at this similar comment posted on another hate site created by Claudine and AMPP:
While this is happening, Deanna is continuing to manage the Lawless Kent County page and post there including articles promoting herself and her political aspirations.
Feb 1, 2013- Deanna is accused by Bill Windsor of misconduct (direct quote),”Deanna, you have misappropriated our Michigan email address by changing the password.”

Deanna, you have misappropriated our Michigan email address by changing the password. Please advise the password so we may change it for our continued use.
Failure to do so shall be construed as conversion, trademark infringement, and tortious interference with business relations.
I will not hesitate to sue you and file for a restraining order in Judge Patricia Gardner’s court.

I am really tired of you threatening me, bulling me, and telling me what to do.Please file your suit with judge Patricia Gardner, she will get a laugh out of it.
You sure must have a lot of time on your hands running around threatening people and filing all these suits.
AFTER Feb 1st, five additional posts appear on the Lawless Kent County page. Clearly Deanna has misappropriated the password because she continues to post AFTER Bill told her to stop, and that she was no longer a part of Lawless Michigan.
The last post says..
Feb 24, 2013 Lawless Kent County reposts an article written by Deanna on Feb 18 titled “The Most Corrupt Americans” The article concludes by promoting Deanna’s website and asking for donations for this website. Deanna also mentions she is running for US State Senate in 2018 and asks for both votes and donations for the Senate campaign.
“Please donate today to Abused Swan and help them save mothers lives. What you do not know is Deanna Kloostra, the writer of this article and the creator of Abused Swan, will be running for US Senate in 2018. Vote for Deanna or donate to her campaign when the time comes. “
Does Deanna even know where the money is going? Hint: you can’t mix campaign funds with personal business expenditures.
Also appearing on the page is a petition to remove Judge Patricia Gardner.. hmm.. wonder who is behind that?
Clearly Deanna Kloostra attacked Bill Windsor and Lawless America FIRST. Her later claims of being victimized by Bill/Lawless are not valid when you look at the actual evidence, and note the dates/times. AMPP has not provided any real evidence to prove their outrageous claims against Bill, instead they hope you are so offended that you will not question what is going on or why.
