Kofi Annan will be stepping down from his secretary-general position in a few short weeks. Annan's resum— features such highlights as the 1994 Rwanda massacre, the Oil-for-Food mega-scandal, and his molly-coddling of aides accused of personal misconduct.

But Kofi had one more trick up his sleeve.

Last week he released his long-awaited report bearing the grandiloquent title, the Secretary-General's Study on Violence Against Women. Even by United Nations standards, the report is an embarrassment....(Full Story)

Sins of the mother

Barbara Kay, National Post
Published: Wednesday, October 11, 2006

We have heard the story before. The names change, the province changes, the particulars of the custody case change, the age of the dead child changes, but some things stay the same when a mother kills her own children: Any objective observer can see the tragedy coming a mile away, the children are not removed from her toxic embrace before it happens, and the mother is not only insufficiently punished (if at all) for the crime, but receives public sympathy on the assumption she was driven to it by forces beyond her control.

Last week, Frances Elaine Campione, 31, locked in a year-long custody battle with her estranged husband Leonardo, was charged with the murder of their two baby daughters, one-year-old Sophia, and three-year-old Serena. Whatever the truth turns out to be in this case, warning signs had abounded: The Children's Aid Society of Simcoe County, Ont. had kept an open file on this family for some time; former neighbours portrayed the mother as unstable and possibly suicidal; some described bizarre and frightening public behaviour; she had been hospitalized for treatment on several occasions.

In the past five years, there have been several comparable tragedies....(Full story)

THE DICTATORSHIP AND DIALECTIC OF FEMINISM

Nancy Levant
September 26, 2006
NewsWithViews.com

I am sick to death and horrified by dictatorship in the United States of America. It has infiltrated every single social system in this nation. Education, religion, transportation, business/goods and services, science/technology/communications, economics, human health, politics — you name it - dictatorship is alive on the homeland and crushing the people.

Every one of these systems is eliminating our voices, our opinions, our choices, and our physical ability to thrive and succeed. And to add unconscionable insult to injury, gender control is in full swing. Men are losing their rights to work, to react, to opinion, to Constitutional duty, to bear arms, to fatherhood, and to control what money and resources they have....(Full Story — off-site)

It is obvious.  Feminism does not speak for all women.  It is safe to say that feminism speaks only for a minority of women, for those who make a living off the social devastation that feminism brought into the world.  The USA is not the only country affected by feminism.  Although it is presently one of the most-severely affected ones, many other developed nations and increasingly so the developing and under-developed nations are becoming affected.

Paternity fraud

The Innocent Third Party: Victims of Paternity Fraud

By Ronald K. Henry

Family Law Quarterly of the American Bar Association, vol. 40, no. 1, Spring 2006

From the article:

If paternity fraud were a "one in a million event," we might shrug and say that the random strike of paternity fraud is no worse than the random strike of lightning. The reality is that the lowest estimates of the number of paternity fraud victims [in the USA] are in the tens of thousands, and I believe that the number may be in excess of one million. The scandal is that the child support enforcement bureaucracy has consciously chosen to make no attempt to quantify the problem.

Woman faces prison after setting boyfriend's penis on fire

An instance of feminist anti-male bias in reporting by the media

The newspaper coverage that this story deserves barely exists, even though the article in question states:

Canadian Press

Sept. 12, 2006 07:37 PM MONTREAL - Sentencing arguments will begin in November for a woman who followed in the footsteps of Lorena Bobbitt, the Virginia woman who gained infamy in 1993 for slicing off her husband's penis.

Andree Rene's weapon of choice was fondue fuel. ....

It seems very doubtful that Andree Rene will gain infamy to the same extent that Lorena Bobbitt did. 

She is out on bail. 

More than five years after she committed her crime, and a year after having been found guilty of aggravated assault (why was she not charged with attempted murder?) she is still waiting to be sentenced. 

She is in essence free and most likely will remain free even if sentenced.

Most of all, given the little bit of news coverage the case got, Andree Rene will most certainly not gain the extent of infamy reached by Lorena Bobbitt.  We are all lucky to even have heard of the case and will quite likely be even luckier to hear anything else about it.

That is censorship, feminist censorship!

Australian government bureaucracy aids, abets and actively participates in child kidnapping

Australian safety survey kills feminist distortions

Most women have a harder time being wrong than men do

Most women have a harder time being wrong than men because they actually think they're better people. Be prepared for her saying, "Now you've really made me feel bad." Which may be true, but it's also an attempt at being the victim of that conversation.

— Toby Green, female psychologist and couples counsellor, Sydney, Australia, in he says, she says (off-site, but the link
no longer works.  The quote from Toby Green is also shown in this discussion thread on What is Feminism?)

Given that she is a woman, Toby Green allowed her perceptions to taint her article just a little bit.  The issue she discusses is that women have a harder time being wrong than men do.  It seems to me that most women I know don't have a particularly hard time being wrong.  A woman like that can clearly and unarguably be wrong and also be completely unable to recognize or admit that she is wrong and not at all be troubled by that.  Such women have a much more difficult time than men do with recognizing that they are wrong and even a much greater difficulty yet to accept responsibility for having placed themselves in the wrong.  That many women have a hard time admitting that they can be or are wrong about anything is not exactly news, but that did not prevent me from becoming a little flabbergasted in the following case in point. 
   Just a couple of days before the article identified above was sent to me, I reminded a young woman that she had not yet returned my hard-cover copy of When She Was Bad: Violent Women and the Myth of Innocence, by Patricia Pearson (no longer in print and now a collector's item).  About two years have gone by since the time I had lent her the book. 
   Lately, whenever I asked her for the book, she said tersely, "No, I haven't brought it," or "No, not yet." It seemed to me that she felt that I had sinned by asking her.  That puzzled me a bit, but I let it go. 
   However, when just a few days ago I again asked her about the book, her answer was more elaborate and gave me a clue on what her perception of my transgression against her was.  She said something like, "No, I have not found your book, and I don't think that I can.  I wish that you don't ask me about it anymore.  You make me feel really bad when you ask me for the book.  Lately, you often asked about the book, and that made me feel bad every time.  I resent that." 
   I asked her whether she was trying to lay a guilt trip on me for her having lost the book.  After all, the issue is that I need the book back, not that my asking for it causes her to have bad feelings.  She had no problem seeing my point of view and agreed that she would reimburse me for what it would cost to buy another copy of When She Was Bad
   The question now is whether being asked to pay for the book will make her feel bad or very bad.  It will be worth paying the price to find out, regardless of whether I get my money back or not (US$39.95 - including shipping and handling - for a used hard-cover copy). I will report here a few days from now on what I will learn from the experience.

What I learned so far from this and other experiences in that context is that it does no good to tell women who put themselves upon a pedestal that they are wrong.  In the eyes of such a woman no lesser mortal has the right to tell her that she did something that is not right, not even objectively and without being critical.  It will make her feel bad and produce nothing but her wrath.  Given that she has the perception of being in an elevated position, she will have the illusion that she has absolute immunity and can therefore pee on lesser mortals without making a great effort in doing so.
   We can talk all we want about the differences between absolute and relative realities, the truth is that we must live with the harsh reality (an extremely subjective one) that many women's illusions can and will be used as the justification for causing other people and especially men a lot of pain.  Don't be surprised that when women inflict pain they will be made to feel good, and that often they will inflict pain on others for no other reason than to revel in that.  Many women have the perception that it is their right to be made to feel good, and that anything that causes them to feel bad is a transgression against them that is felt by all women.  It took me almost 70 years of my life to learn that, and I am still far from understanding most of it.

REAL Women of Canada, Action Alert, 2006 08 07

COUNTER-ATTACK BY FEMINISTS

A 2006 08 07 action alert by REAL Women of Canada states, amongst other things related to the issue of the need to disband Status Of Women, Canada, and its outrageous policies and funding:

Since 1973, the federal Status of Women has given millions of dollars to feminist only groups and promoted feminist policies on the false premise that women in Canada are victims of a patriarchal society. Although some women may be victims, the vast majority of Canadian women are perfectly able and are capable of making their own decisions about their lives. They do not need nor want the Status of Women to speak on their behalf.

With the election of the Conservatives in January 2006, REAL Women believed that the time had come to examine this serious abuse of taxpayers' money, as well as the hugely unnecessary House of Commons Standing Committee on the Status of Women. (The latter had recommended that there be a 25% increase in funding to feminist only group.)

Status of Women apparently organized a letter-writing campaign by radical-feminist organizations to Canadian parliamentarians, to counter-act the efforts by REAL Women of Canada to have Status of Women abolished.  In consequence, REAL Women of Canada now asks individuals wishing to put an end to the Status of Women in turn to write to parliamentarians, so as to object to the continued existence of Status of Women and in support of REAL Women of Canada's efforts to have Status of Women disbanded. 

The text of the action alert contains a list of individuals (and their addresses) that should be contacted.  (Full text of the action alert — off-site)

Is feminism dead now?

Modern Women 'Happy To Be Housewives'

Life Style Extra (U.K.) tells in an August 3, 2006 article that, based on a poll of 3,000 women (commissioned by New Woman magazine), modern women have abandoned feminism and are happy to be housewives.

The article is quite obviously wrong in making that claim. Most of the women in that survey appear to have substituted pop-feminism for good-old radical-feminism (a.k.a. Marxist- or socialist-feminism), although, given their shallow mind-set, it is doubtful that many of the mostly mercenary, greed-motivated women who participated in the poll are aware that they made that choice any more than the editors of Life Style Extra and the author of that article are.

Men are More Likely Than Women to Be Victims in Dating Violence, UNH Expert Says

...This research is part of the International Dating Violence Study, a multinational study of violence against dating partners by university students. A consortium of researchers around the world collected data from 13,601 students at 68 universities in 32 nations.

In the paper, Straus calls for an end to the focus on men as the only perpetrators of dating violence, saying the refusal to recognize the multi-causal nature of the problem is hampering the effort to end domestic violence and ignoring half the perpetrators. As recently as December 2005, the National Institute of Justice refused to consider applications for funding that dealt with male victims....

State of New York Court of Appeals rules against legalizing same-sex marriages

[2006 07 06, Case #86 - #89] R. S. SMITH, J.: We hold that the New York Constitution does not compel recognition of marriages between members of the same sex.
Whether such marriages should be recognized is a question to be addressed by the Legislature.

....All the parties to these cases now acknowledge, implicitly or explicitly, that the Domestic Relations Law limits marriage to opposite-sex couples. Some amici, however, suggest that the statute can be read to permit same-sex marriage, thus mooting the constitutional issues. We find this suggestion untenable.

....there are at least two grounds that rationally support the limitation on marriage that the Legislature has enacted. Others have been advanced, but we will discuss only these two, both of which are derived from the undisputed assumption that marriage is important to the welfare of children.
     First, the Legislature could rationally decide that, for the welfare of children, it is more important to promote stability, and to avoid instability, in opposite-sex than in same-sex relationships. Heterosexual intercourse has a natural tendency to lead to the birth of children; homosexual intercourse does not. Despite the advances of science, it remains true that the vast majority of children are born as a result of a sexual relationship between a man and a woman, and the Legislature could find that this will continue to be true. The Legislature could also find that such relationships are all too often casual or temporary. It could find that an important function of marriage is to create more stability and permanence in the relationships that cause children to be born. It thus could choose to offer an inducement -- in the form of marriage and its attendant benefits -- to opposite-sex couples who make a solemn, long-term commitment to each other.
     The Legislature could find that this rationale for marriage does not apply with comparable force to same-sex couples These couples can become parents by adoption, or by artificial insemination or other technological marvels, but they do not become parents as a result of accident or impulse. The Legislature could find that unstable relationships between people of the opposite sex present a greater danger that children will be born into or grow up in unstable homes than is the case with same-sex couples, and thus that promoting stability in opposite sex relationships will help children more. This is one reason why the Legislature could rationally offer the benefits of
marriage to opposite-sex couples only.
     There is a second reason: The Legislature could rationally believe that it is better, other things being equal, for children to grow up with both a mother and a father.  Intuition and experience suggest that a child benefits from having before his or her eyes, every day, living models of what both a man and a woman are like. It is obvious that there are exceptions to this general rule -- some children who never know their fathers, or their mothers, do far better than some who grow up with parents of both sexes -- but the Legislature could find that the general rule will usually hold.
     Plaintiffs, and amici supporting them, argue that the proposition asserted is simply untrue: that a home with two parents of different sexes has no advantage, from the point of view of raising children, over a home with two parents of the same sex. Perhaps they are right, but the Legislature could rationally think otherwise.
     To support their argument, plaintiffs and amici supporting them refer to social science literature reporting studies of same-sex parents and their children. Some opponents of same-sex marriage criticize these studies, but we need not consider the criticism, for the studies on their face do not establish beyond doubt that children fare equally well in same-sex and opposite-sex households. What they show, at most, is that rather limited observation has detected no marked differences. More definitive results could hardly be expected, for until recently few children have been raised in same-sex households, and there has not been enough time to study the long-term results of such child-rearing....

Don't Make Her Mad; Just Expose Her Abuse

Question for men: Ever hear a woman tell you, "Just give me a reason!" or "All I need is an excuse"? She's telling you she's aware of her legal advantages, and that making her angry enough could provide her with just enough inward justification to destroy you with a false allegation. Simply making her mad could cause you to lose your freedom, kids, reputation, career, and finances.

Reacting to such an abusive woman's insane sense of entitlement, too many men respond with hostility and contempt (which, too often, backfires): it can be as simple as "hogging the remote" or as incendiary as cheating. This site advises men against "acting out" toward her in any way, because that could give her all the excuse she needs to fabricate an allegation.

Instead, we advise men to "let her be her threatening self," long enough for it to be captured via surveillance. Yes, we advocate the use of surveillance <http://www.dontmakehermad.com/protectyourself/> to expose the outrageous intimidation that women wield against men who would make them angry. This site provides men with the tools they need to prove their innocence. Armed with technology, men can show the legal system and the world that they are not the aggressors that the feminist culture claims them to be.

Men Wanted...

By Walter H. Schneider

Skilled workers, that is.  Skilled work always has been and still is the domain of men; relatively few and insufficient instances of a few women who wish to be like men excepted.

In all developed nations a serious shortage of skilled workers is developing.  That is not an unforeseen or unexpected social development.  It is a condition that was deliberately created in a political evolution that put ideology over common sense. (Full Story)

Gay School Guide

By Kelvin Healey, Herald Sun (Australia)

VICTORIAN schools are being advised to dump the words "mother" and "father" by a controversial new teachers manual that promotes the cause of same-sex parents.

Out of sensitivity to same-sex parent families, teachers should use "parent" or "carer" instead, the manual states.

Schools should also put up posters of gay celebrities in schools and not use gender-specific toys, the free Learn to Include teacher's manual urges. (Full Story — off-site)

Vladimir Putin and the rise of the petro-ruble

by Mike Whitney

http://www.opednews.com

If one day the world's largest oil producers demanded euros for their barrels, it would be the financial equivalent of a nuclear strike—. Bill O— Grady, A.G. Edwards


On May 10, Russian President Vladimir Putin ignited a firestorm that is bound to sweep across the global economy. In his State of the Nation speech to parliament,, he announced that Russia was planning to make the ruble —internationally convertible— so that it could be used in oil and natural gas transactions. Presently, oil is denominated exclusively in dollars and sold through the New York Mercantile Exchange (NYMX) or the London Petroleum Exchange (LPE) both owned by American investors. If Russia proceeds with its plan, the ruble will go nose to nose with the dollar on the open market sending several billions of surplus greenbacks back to the United States. This could potentially send the American economy into freefall; triggering a deep recession and an extended period of hyper-inflation.

Brainwashing the Children... A Global Report, Part 4

by Jill Cohen Walker

May 24, 2006 02:23 PM EST

As the battle for total control over our children escalates, the bastions of social services in almost every nation are working overtime to steal them and turn them into state property. This is a global effort, not just an assault on American children, and no effort is too great to those who want to brainwash the children and make them citizens of the new global order.

Parental alienation in the news

The case of an Ontario woman who systematically sabotaged her children's relationship with their father (against court orders to the contrary) made the news.  The woman lost custody of her children, although the children will live with her most weekends and see her for mid-week evening visits.  That is much more than most fathers who lose custody of their children to the children's mother can expect.
   Over the decades, news coverage of the circumstances of parental alienation syndrome (PAS) and its consequences has grown from a very slow trickle to being considerable today. (Full Story)

Chilling perspectives on "Ethics"

In case of a deadly flu pandemic, whom should we save?

Once-upon-a-time a question like that never came up, except in totalitarian nations such as the USSR, Red China and Nazi Germany.  The presence of universal moral standards in the cultural heritage of the West ensured that the answer to such a question was: women and children first, then the elderly, the weak and the sick.  We fought wars to preserve that as a right of humanity, to ensure the abolition of slavery and the right of everyone to life and liberty.  That had made our society reach the heights it attained before its fall.  However, those standards no longer exist.  Now the legalization of euthanasia, assisted suicide and rigorous culling to establish the survival of the fittest is the norm in our brave-new world. 
    In the name of science it is now rationalized that rigorous selective culling is needed on the basis of economics, not survival of the weak on moral grounds.  The outcomes of such practices are similar to those that the Nazis hoped to achieve, for similar reasons; only the methods differ.  The Nazis actively killed those that were — and in our brave-new world we actively withhold the means to keep alive those that are — deemed not worthy to let live, although in the rationalizing for the eradication of the right to life of the weakest of all, those not yet born, we have already shown ourselves to be far more ruthless than the Nazis ever were.
    Still, vestiges of our largely vanished great cultural aims still exist, or else it would not be that the proposal by Ezekiel Emanuel and Alan Wertheimer (in the journal Science, May 12, 2006) sparked as much public discussion as it did.  A May 13, 2006 search per the preceding link provided 539 entries in the search return list. Sixteen hours later, May 14, the entries in the return list for the search had grown to 572.  Although the issues was deemed no longer as newsworthy as of 2006 05 17 (149 entries on the search return list), a google.com search of the Web provided a search-return list with 9,830 entries.

The depopulation crisis is real!

By Walter H. Schneider

A discussion regarding the world-wide depopulation crisis, its causes, origins and consequences


Posted 2006 05 02

Lyndon LaRouche predicts world-wide crash of the economy will happen in September of this year.

In an April 27, 2006 webcast from Washington, D.C., Lyndon LaRouche explained the causes of today's hyperinflation, drew parallels to similar events in history (the latest happened during the Weimar Republic  of Germany in 1923), and stated that today's inflationary curve is following the example set by the hyperinflation in 1923 in Germany.

According to Lyndon LaRouche, the world-wide economic collapse that he has been predicting for some years now has begun in the USA right now and will bring the world economy to a grinding halt by this Fall.  He holds out some hope.  Drastic action is indicated and possible, but he feels that nobody is at home in the US Administration, and that they all have watches but don't know enough to tell the time.

Still, Lyndon LaRouch appears to be right.  Unless we get back on the right path, we will, as he said, all go to Hell.  As Mr. LaRouche explained in his seminar, if nothing drastic is done right now, by the time the crash is over and the dust settles, the private banks in control of the world's monetary system will have full control of all primary resources, and the rest of us will be serfs indentured to them as deeply as any serfs ever were during the darkest of dark ages.

Mothers in the USA more than twice as likely than fathers to kill their children

The website of the US Department of Health and Human Services, Administration for Children & Families contains information on the rate of child maltreatment deaths per 100,000 children.

The information shows that mothers are more than twice as likely than fathers are to kill their children.  (Source: Child Maltreatment 2004, Chapter 4, Fatalities, US DHHS, ACF)

It must be recognized that the information identified above is for all "family" types, including families with married, never married, divorced, adoptive and foster parents.  Treating "family" types as individual categories, it has been found in Britain that a child whose mother cohabits is 73 times more likely to suffer fatal abuse than a child whose parents are married.

Child Support Gold-Diggers

By Carey Roberts, NewsWithViews.com

Carey Roberts writes about paternity fraud, for example:

Consider the paternity scam. Here's how it works:

Find any dim-witted man to get you pregnant. Then look up the name of some unsuspecting Joe who's got a steady job — it doesn't matter that you never met the poor bloke. Put his name on the baby's birth certificate.

Now cross your fingers and hope the man is out of town when the sheriff delivers the papers. In California, such default judgments account for 70% of paternity decisions, according to a 2003 study by the Urban Institute.

Louise Malenfant is no more

During the past weekend Louise Malenfant passed away at her home, in Calgary, Alberta, Canada.

Louise Malenfant had devoted her life to mothers and fathers who lost their children due to injustices such as false abuse allegations.  She had been influential in her native Manitoba to get the bureaucracy to accept that false abuse allegations must not be used by anyone, be they individuals or members of the bureaucracy, to gain the upper hand in removing children from parents.

A few years ago Louise Malenfant moved to Alberta, with the aim to help bring about changes in the attitude of the bureaucracy here, such as those she had helped to create in Manitoba.  She has helped countless parents, mostly fathers, to regain reputations and contact with children of whom they had been robbed, and she prevented many innocent men from being punished for crimes they did not do.

Louise Malenfant will be missed by many.

We think we will be successful in the end—freedom of the press is still the law in Canada. But our attacker is using the abusive, costly process of the Human Rights Commission as a punishment in itself. Even if we win, we'll still have to spend tens of thousands of dollars fighting this complaint, and hundreds of hours of our time. Our attacker doesn't have to do anything but sit back while the Human Rights Commission uses taxpayer money and government employees to put us through the wringer....

EXPOSING THE CORRUPTION IN THE MASSACHUSETTS FAMILY COURTS

By KEVIN THOMPSON

From the description at Lulu.com:

I am just one of the thousands of fathers who have been victimized by the system of organized crime in the Massachusetts family courts. This book exposes the motives, tactics, and hypocrisy that all fathers must endure. The book also details my specific case including the "spin off" corruption that resulted from my efforts to hold the liars and racketeers in and outside of this kangaroo court system accountable.

The book is a must-read.  It is available at Lulu.com (US$20.00 for hard copy, US$9.16 for downloaded copy)

The book is well-researched, well-written, easy to read, and it delivers what its title promises.


The Return of Patriarchy

By Phillip Longman

Foreign Policy, Mar/Apr. 2006; published Feb 28, 2006

Across the globe, people are choosing to have fewer children or none at all. Governments are desperate to halt the trend, but their influence seems to stop at the bedroom door. Are some societies destined to become extinct? Hardly. It's more likely that conservatives will inherit the Earth. Like it or not, a growing proportion of the next generation will be born into families who believe that father knows best. (Full Story)

Another version of this article, under the title "Revenge of the Patriarchs", nearly identical but different in a few very important aspects, was published in Canada's National Post, Mar 27, 2006 (see that version and detect the differences).  Another version yet, under the title "In the name of the father", was published in The Australian, Mar. 24, 2006 (see that version), but I have not yet found the time to check for differences in that version; it should not surprise anyone to find important differences in the Australian version as well.

Marriage is found to be associated with substantially lower rates of mortality, for both men and women. Married men are predicted to be some -7.2 percent less likely to die over the period [1993 to 2000] than unmarried men. For women, the effect is smaller.
   Women married in 1991 are approximately -4.1 percent less likely to die over the period 1993 to 2000 than otherwise similar unmarried women.

   It is generally impossible for a woman to be convicted of murdering her child or to receive more than a light sentence.  You see, there is always someone or something (if everything else fails, even her inner demons or the devil) that compels a woman to murder her child, whereby she is then deemed to be suffering and not deserving of any punishment.
   Munchausen Syndrome by Proxy is named after Baron von M—nchhausen (1720-1797) a German hunter, soldier and notorious teller of outrageous tall tales.
