VAWA causing the deaths of men.

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.

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.

American Fathers

So you’d rather watch tournament games and go bowling than support a “We Are Fathers” campaign for justice and equality. Well that’s your choice, it’s a free country, in theory anyway. But you should know that countless lawyers, child experts and bureaucrats are cheering you on because they profit from all this apathy and a misguided sense of priorities. In America today, our government is engaged in the lucrative expansion of a child control bureaucracy that is harming our families, productivity and moral fiber as a nation. This vast public enterprise has invaded every aspect of private life, often wielding power beyond that exercised by the NSA, CIA or IRS. It is a silent and insidious trend eroding parental rights repeatedly declared by our Supreme Court to be the “oldest liberty interest” protected by the United States Constitution. This interest is shared equally by fathers and mothers. But in practice, the male half has not been accorded its rightful place among our human rights due to a profit motive in family court driven by needless custody, support and divorce contests. Census Bureau reports continue to show the gender disparities on all domestic fronts. After promoting a parental rights cause in Paris recently, I was amazed to note how a million people together with world leaders could rally in that city within days to support free speech. Meanwhile, here in the states, more than 70 million fathers have yet to mobilize after a century of widespread discrimination. Such discrimination is having harmful impacts on all aspects of society and quite likely the female population more so than its counterpart. Veterans, minorities and high profile figures are particularly vulnerable to a court system that has placed money and politics over genuine parent-child relationships. Fathers are a vital component of any social or family structure as they have been since the beginning of civilization. Unfortunately federal entitlement laws and incentive funding to the states have marginalized that role to a point of virtual extinction. This has led to educational costs, heinous crimes and moral deterioration on a vast scale corroborated by an exodus from all manner of religion. In practical terms, our taxpayers are funding the creation of social ills and then forced to pay for it on the back side with costly welfare programs. Future generations will look back one day and be amazed at how truly barbaric our domestic relations courts once were. A scheme of laws and processes derived from feudal equity doctrines has been retained which features loving parents engaged in brutal contests over their offspring in a public arena. A winner-take-all battle for custody leads to overregulation of families by the state and marginalization, alienation or outright extinction of one fit parent from the children’s lives. Anal investigations of the combatants’ backgrounds by self serving advisors incite further controversy to last a lifetime. It is a spectacle reminiscent of the Roman Coliseum. No person or entity has ever been able to achieve a comprehensive study of the vast detriment which this archaic custody and support system has had upon our society. Any such effort would assuredly be stymied because custody and unequal parenting are highly profitable. Yet common sense dictates that our nation could be well served with sweeping reforms here in our least scrutinized branch of government. We can put a man on the moon, split atoms, engage artificial intelligence and achieve vast breakthroughs in medicine but remain unable to extricate family courts from their nineteenth century practices. www.Facebook.com/AmericanFathers
