Championing a White House Council on Boys and Men|The Proposal

The Boy CrisisThe Boy Crisis

Learn more about the issues boys face today:

A multi-partisan commission of many of the nation’s leading experts have articulated five components to the boy crisis, and suggested solutions, including the coordination of a White House Council on Boys and Men. See the right sidebar for the full proposal. Click here for a video explaining the crisis.

Sign up for our new monthly newsletter, The Proposal, which features an article on each of the five components of the boy crisis. The sign up is here.

Who and What. A multi-partisan Commission of thirty-four nationally-known scholars and practitioners request that President Obama create a White House Council on Boys to Men.

Why. A nationwide crisis of boys and men already exists. The Commission identifies five components:
Education. Boys are behind girls in almost every subject, especially reading and writing. Yet boy-friendly programs (e.g., recess and vocational education) are being curtailed.
Jobs. Our sons are not being prepared for jobs where the jobs will be. Yet women rarely marry men in unemployment lines.
Fatherlessness. A third of boys are raised in father-absent homes; yet boys and girls with significant father involvement do better in more than 25 areas.
• Physical health. Life expectancy has gone from one to five years less for males than for females, yet federal offices of boys and men’s health are non-existent.
Emotional health. Boys’ suicide rate goes from equal to girls to five times girls’ between ages 13 and 20, as boys feel the pressures of the male role.

Each of the five crisis components is potentially handled by a different department of the government; therefore coordination and prioritization is best handled at the White House level.

Short-Term Investment. One million dollars.
Long-Term Savings. Many billions of dollars. (For example, boys who are cared for become men who care for–men who pay taxes for schools rather than drain taxes for prisons.)
Quality-of-Life Savings. Priceless.

Timing. The mere presidential announcement of a White House Council on Boys to Men makes visible an invisible crisis. A White House Conference on Boys to Men to present “best practices” within one year after the Council is created.

VAWA causing the deaths of men.

NCFM Advisor Gordon Finley, Ph.D. blasts VAWA for causing the deaths of men | National Coalition For Men (NCFM)

Men die with VAWA

The letter immediately below was published in The Hill on Wednesday March 13, 2013 and is followed by the article to which it responded.

In perhaps the supreme triumph of ideology and the feminist vote bullying over science ever, the Violence Against Women Act (VAWA) has been passed by both gutless houses of Congress and signed by a spineless president (“Obama signs VAWA, hails law as ‘victory’ for violence victims,” March 7).

Tragically, boys, men and fathers increasingly will die at the hands of their violent mothers and wives as our worthless elected officials rush to issue press releases and pat themselves on the back claiming victory for all eternity to now having ended “the war on women.” The consequences, in addition to what will be the exponentially rising violence against boys, men and fathers, include a drop in the confidence of ordinary citizens with real-life experiences and common sense in their elected officials, if it could drop any lower. The consistently replicated bottom line of empirical research studies, as opposed to politicized ideology, is that domestic violence initiation and victimization is very close to 50-50 on virtually all indexes.

If there is any legislation our worthless Congress has passed that is more harmful to children, families and the well being of society, I have missed it.

fam law scandal - 2016Obama signs VAWA, hails law as ‘victory’ for violence victims

President Obama signed a bipartisan bill Thursday to reauthorize the Violence Against Women Act, ending a year-long effort to renew legislation that provides federal funding for programs aiding the prosecutions of domestic and sexual violence cases.

The president heralded the legislation as a “victory” for the victims of domestic violence.fathers-and-equality-2015-16

“One of the great legacies of this law is that it didn’t just change the rules, it changed our culture,” Obama said.

The legislation includes new measures intended to help prosecutions on Native American reservations of non-native perpetrators of violence and grants for lesbian, gay, bisexual and trans-gendered men and women. The bill also includes new funding to reduce the backlog of DNA tests in rape cases and improve police facility storage across the country.

Obama specifically highlighted the new provisions in his remarks.

“This is a country where everyone should be able to pursue their own measure of happiness and live their lives free from fear, no matter who we are or who we love,” Obama said.

The president also took time to recognize the efforts of Vice President Biden, an original author of the bill who had spearheaded administration efforts to urge a renewal.

“On behalf of everybody here, and all of the lives that you have had a positive impact and touched through the Violence Against Women’s Act, the survivors who are alive today because of this law, the women who are no longer hiding in fear because of this law, the girls who are growing up aware of their right to be free from abuse because of this law, on behalf of them and all their families, I want to thank Joe Biden for making this one of the causes of his career,” Obama said, urging those at the event provide a standing ovation to the vice president.

The original VAWA had expired in September 2011, and debate over the new provisions had stalled legislation in the House.

Republicans had opposed the Senate bill, which included the revisions, but changed course after it became clear that the upper chamber would not act on a House version of the bill. A revised Senate bill also excluded a provision that would make it easier for non-citizen victims of domestic violence to win visas, in a concession to Republicans.

Top Republicans, including Reps. Darrell Issa (Calif.) and Tom Cole (Okla.), backed the Senate bill over the House version in a rare move, and attended the ceremony Thursday.

PUBLIC WARNING - FAMILY COURT DESTROYS LIVES --2016On Thursday, lawmakers from both sides of the aisle heralded the signing.

“Today’s signing of the Violence Against Women Act Re-authorization into law gives women and all victims of domestic violence across America the peace of mind that their government will not abandon them in their time of need,” said Rep. Louise Slaughter (D-N.Y.), an author of the original bill.

Sen. Kelly Ayotte (R-N.H.) said in a post to her Twitter account she was “pleased” the president was signing the bill.

Scott’s veto message made it seem as if the “best interests of children” would get lost.

Fathers and Equality - 2015-16

Shouldn’t responsible parents be considered equals?

Mayo – Sun Sentinel

Gov. Rick Scott vetoed a bill that would have ended permanent alimony and tweaked other parts of Florida divorce law, including the way child custody is determined.

Like divorce itself, the latest bill was messy and complicated. It roused strong emotions from supporters and detractors, who clashed in the governor’s office before Scott wielded his veto pen.

Supporters say they might try again next year, but may split the two main issues — alimony reform and child custody — into separate bills. At this point, I have to wonder if Scott will approve any divorce overhaul.

Unite With Trump to End Family Court Corruption

Our report of court corruption and reform was hand delivered to campaign staff.family-civil-rights-movement-20152

By Dr. Leon R. Koziol

Is there any one out there who will take solid steps to end the abuse of parents in America’s divorce and family courts? Among the presidential candidates we all know the answer, and that’s Donald Trump.

Numerous elections have come and gone over the past fifty years and yet here we are still warring over our children in these barbaric tribunals that enrich lawyers at the expense of our children.

How many parents can truly say they got a fair shake in these courts? While the scandals, bribes and misconduct become exposed, the corruption is only escalating. And most of it is overlooked unlike other branches of government.

It’s up to us to reform this system, to replace mandatory custody awards with a shared parenting framework, to rein in over billing lawyers who profit from needless orchestrated court battles, and take back our courts.

We must demand accountability and transparency through protests of diverse kinds. It’s a self regulated system we are fighting which is reaping havoc on all facets of our society. In a self governing nation like ours we have a duty to take action.

Yet no one in government today seems to care. That’s because it’s become a lucrative trillion dollar child control industry. Each year it’s getting worse. How many can truly say that they were treated fairly and respectfully in these courts, and if so, at what cost?

While we watch our rights evaporate, qualified advocates are censored to unconscionable levels. My ordeal is the classic example. Shockingly the suppression comes from the very people whose jobs are created to protect free speech, judges who prefer to fault us for the injury they inflame upon our children, families and communities.

In response to the latest court rulings designed to continue the censorship and suppression of this site, I have completed a report which exposes the corruption and charts a course of action. We have delivered it to the Trump team and will publicize it here soon.

We’ve had enough. It’s time for a war on court corruption. Please share this post, promote it and kindly make a donation for a most worthy cause. We also offer a court program to help parents avoid injustices in these courts.

All for one, and one for all.

Best regards,

Leon R. Koziol, J.D.
