NCFM makes front page news again! This time in a story about a triple homicide and the Army’s persecution of Major “Kit” Martin!

By JACOB THOMAS, Kentucky New Era A woman whose ex-husband is at the center of an investigation into a triple-homicide in Pembroke was granted five years of pretrial diversion this week in Christian Circuit Court for bigamy. Joan A. Harmon, 44, Elkton, pleaded guilty on Oct. 14. On Wednesday, Judge Andrew Self granted her five years of unsupervised probation in lieu of jail time, according to court documents. The charge stems from Harmon marrying Major Christian “Kit” Martin on Dec. 7, 2004, while she was still legally married to Carlos Guerra, who lives in Springfield, Tennessee. According to court records, Harmon and Martin lived together as husband and wife for nearly a decade at Martin’s home, 458 S. Main St. in Pembroke. Martin, a soldier who is currently awaiting a court-martial on charges of sexual abuse and mishandling classified...

NCFM Australian Liaison Greg Andresen highlights the current lack of support for male domestic violence victims

NCFM Australian Liaison Greg Andresen highlights the current lack of support for male domestic violence victims

Male victims of domestic violence: a hidden battle In 2009, when a significant amount of Australian data sources concluded that one in three victims of family violence are male, the One in Three Campaign was established. Senior Researcher Greg Andresen highlights the current lack of support for male victims, the difficulties faced with raising awareness of this issue and the Campaign’s efforts to overcome these challenges To what extent are male victims denied support due to their gender in Australia? The majority of services for victims of family violence are denied to men because of their gender. These include: court support schemes and safe rooms, crisis services and shelter/refuges, hospital and GP training and screening tools, most helplines and community awareness campaigns. While some generic (not male-specific or male-friendly) support is available to men (eg. police, Lifeline), such services...

NCFM wins Ninth Circuit Selective Service Appeal!

By
NCFM wins Ninth Circuit Selective Service Appeal!

The National Coalition For Men (NCFM) is pleased to announce that on 2/19/16, the Ninth Circuit Court of Appeal reversed the lower Federal District Court’s dismissal of NCFM’s and James Lesmeister’s lawsuit that challenges the constitutionality of the male-only Selective Service registration requirement. The District Court had dismissed the case on the ground that it was not “ripe” (i.e., it was premature) because the military has not yet fully implemented the integration of women into all combat roles, and thus that the case of Rostker v. Goldberg, 453 U.S. 57 (1981) is still valid.  But the Court of Appeal reversed, holding that the claim is “definite and concrete, not hypothetical or abstract,” in that “Lesmeister and the Coalition point to numerous specific changes in statutes, policies, and practices that have happened since the Supreme Court’s decision in Rostker v....

NCFM Member Tim Patten, “Women: Where Are the Good Men?”

By
NCFM Member Tim Patten, “Women: Where Are the Good Men?”

Women: Where Are the Good Men? Right now, all over the world, millions of women are searching for a “good man.” Even after decades of effort on the part of the women’s liberation movement to empower women with the mantra, “I do not need a man,” they continue on this seemingly endless quest. The process to find a good man begins early by assuring little girls that they’ll “meet a good partner one day”. Indeed, they seem to intuitively understand that someone, someday, will take care of them for the rest of their lives. They are told, “When you’re married, you’ll be happy,” as they bask in dreams of a fancy wedding and a life with a perfect soul mate. He’ll be masculine, he’ll work hard and he’ll earn enough money to care for his woman and for her...

NCFM update on the Vladek Filler case and incredible court victory

His character-disordered wife falsely accused Vladek Filler of sexual assault and lesser crimes. His fight for freedom from our legal system began in 2007, nine years ago, and it is not over… Worse, Hancock County prosecutors, especially Assistant District Attorney Mary Kellett, knew or should have known the accusations were false, yet they vigorously and viciously persecuted Vladek. So bad were Kellett’s indiscretions and crimes, the Board of Overseers of the Bar recommended she be sanctioned, and she was. It was the first time in the State of Maine an Assistant District Attorney was prosecuted. Kellett was convicted but never missed a days’ pay, spent a day in jail, or was disbarred. The District Attorney, Attorney General (Janet T. Mills), and even the Supreme Court Justice overseeing Kellett’s trial were all women, at least two of whom were or...

NCFM PRESS RELEASE calls on Candidates to Stop Spewing Gender Pay Gap Myth

http://ncfm.org/lead-with-us/join-ncfm/ NCFM calls on Candidates to Stop Spewing Gender Pay Gap Myth The National Coalition For Men (NCFM) calls on Hillary Clinton, Bernie Sanders, and all other candidates to be honest about the gender “pay gap.” Claiming that women “earn less” without explaining why is misleading and dishonest. The Department of Labor funded a study that showed the pay gap is mostly due to choices, not discrimination. Before women get married and have kids, they earn the same as men, and are also beneficiaries of quality of life choices that favor health and longevity as reflected by statistics on industrial deaths. After having kids, women make additional quality of life choices different from males, such as more flexible hours and less managerial positions. Women have more options than men when it comes to being primary parents. In fact, over...

NCFM Member Naomi Evans, update on the Brandon Jones Act paternity fraud reform legislation

Washington State Legislative session began two weeks ago on January 11th. This year’s Legislature is the second half of Washington’s biennium session and is the short 60 day session. Taking into consideration that we only have 60 days to pass “The Brandon Jones Act” HB 2612, and we are working on a completely new bill in comparison to the last two years, I have been determined to do things differently in utilizing more of my time to be active within the legislative process and put down my “pen” more in writing blog updates. However there are some very important and exciting things that have been going on over the last two weeks: KOMO 4 News Investigator Tracy Vedder did a special report on Brandon Jones and CJ Abernathey’s story of Paternity Fraud which aired on January 13th, 2016.

By
NCFM Member Tim Patten, Woman Hospitalized after Boyfriend Beats Her! Domestic violence, who’s the victim?

Twelve million Americans between the ages of 18 and 32 are affected by domestic violence every year.  Jack Robinson was from Milwaukee. He was a 21-year old auto mechanic who had spent most of his adult life chasing and idolizing women. He enjoyed playing video games, joking with coworkers and hanging out with friends. One day, he hoped to meet that special someone. Jack Meets Shelly Unfortunately, Jack hadn’t had much success with women. For reasons he couldn’t understand, they usually didn’t approach him. Hoping to change this, he had adopted an almost larger-than-life persona that he believed they would find hard to resist–or so he thought. Jack knew that modern-day mating rituals require stamina and hard work. Before his cotton-candy dreams could come true, his pedigree, zip code and medical history would be scrutinized and compared to those...

NCFM sends letter to legislators supporting legislation against taxes based on one’s sex – NO MAN TAX

NO WOMAN TAX OR MAN TAX BECAUSE OF THEIR SEX! Taxing people just because of their sex is so wrong!  Thankfully, California Assembly Member Ling Ling Chang and Cristina Garcia agree, and they have proposed legislation that addresses sex-based taxes – California Assembly Bill 15611, which will exempt sanitary napkins and tampons from sales taxes. Ms. Garcia is vice chair of the California Legislative Women’s Caucus, and the Sacramento Bee reported Ms. Garcia as saying, “I feel this is an important issue of social justice for all women out there.”  Garcia said AB 587 “Will help close the wage gap between men and women . . . we are underpaid, every penny really matters, and every month we have a necessity we can’t control.”  She argued, “We are being taxed for being women.” NCFM has sent Ms. Chang and Ms. Garcia a letter...

Jeanne was NCFM’s representative to the San Mateo County Fatherhood Collaborative while it existed. She attended two SMCFC meetings, was developing a good working relationship with then Executive Director Carine Verdusco and is an active member of a broad-based children, father and family advocacy group working to resurrect the program; which, as the article below suggests, may have been defunded for political reasons. San Mateo County, like all other counties has a plethora of programs for women, children and even animals. They had one for fathers. It is now gone. Father advocacy and programs are important, especially for our children. You would think politicians would understand that, especially those with sons. Among other things, NCFM also helped sponsor the Dad and Me at the Park event last June, and Jeanne operated our outreach and education booth. NCFM was the only father advocacy group represented at the event. As cartoonist Marc Hershon points out,...

NCFM Member Caleb Papp, Feminist Thinks JC in JC Penny stands for “Just Complain”

Feminist Thinks JC in JC Penny stands for “Just Complain” A couple months ago an article ran about a girl being sent home from JC Penny for wearing “too revealing”shorts. But that was the slant she put on it. In reality JC Penny simply doesn’t allow anyone, male nor female, to wear shorts to work. That of course means that she wasn’t sent home because the shorts were revealing, but because they were shorts. And who cares she bought them in the store, JC Penny can’t sell shorts for people who’s career allows shorts? We should take no surprise that a self identified feminist would twist the situation like that, at least I don’t. All too often I’ve seen the twisting of data to fit what feminists want and to be fair what any political group wants. But what...

Two days before Christmas the department store was less elbow-to-elbow than expected though the parking lot could have passed for a boisterous bumper-car ride. In line at the checkout the woman before me was about to buy a hair curling iron, a jar of Original Organic Gourmet Popping Corn, a small tabletop EasyPop popcorn machine, can of mixed nuts, jar of crème marshmallow, assorted Christmas candies, and a half a dozen slow burn Jalapeño Peppers the rich color of perpetual love, Baldur mistletoe green. She separated the EasyPop from the rest with conveyor belt divider bars, in this case orange, those bars that keep one customer’s stuff from intruding on another customer’s stuff, without which lines come to a crawl, tempers shorten and people wonder why me.

NCFM VP Marc Angelucci argues NCFM case against male only Selective Service System in Ninth Circuit Court of Appeals

  On December 8, 2015 NCFM’s appeal in their lawsuit against the Selective Service challenging the constitutionality of the male-only draft requirement came up for oral argument before a three-judge panel at the 9th Circuit Federal Court of Appeals in Pasadena, California. NCFM Vice President Marc Angelucci barely got three      sentences in when the judges stopped him and essentially said there is no need to argue whether the dismissal was erroneous in 2013, because a few days ago the circumstances changed when the Department of Defense announced that women would be allowed in all combat roles. Angelucci, surprised and even somewhat taken back by the court’s position, reserved his remaining time and sat down. The Court understood. The U.S. Attorney General then argued adamantly that even with the new announcement from the Department of Defense, the case is still...

NCFM Member Naomi Evans update on paternity fraud reform efforts in Washington

NCFM NOTE: This article was earlier published but was lost when our website was attacked and seriously damaged. This is an important article for several reasons not the least of which is showing how the determination of a few people can have dramatic impact on government. Naomi, in her dogged pursuit of justice, uncovered an Achilles heal in child support services operations, not just in Washington, but most certainly throughout the United States. Federal law leans toward freeing cuckolded men while states appear to have misused the law to encourage entrapment for no reason other than money. That, coupled with the dialog below makes it abundantly clear that the states interest in dollars overrules interest in children. Read this report from Naomi a few times to understand the full impact of what was discovered. If we had 100 people...

NCFM PRESS RELEASE urging the Canadian Government to stop discriminating against male refugees

The National Coalition For Men (NCFM) urges the Canadian government to end discrimination against male refugees NCFM calls for an end to sexist male-only profiling. Harry Crouch, NCFM President, said, “Sexist male-only policies have to end, especially in light of increased female involvement in terrorist attacks, ideological or workplace.” The female shooters in the recent mass shootings in Paris and San Bernardino, as well as the five female suicide bombers who killed a dozen people in Nigeria and Cameroon recently, all demonstrate how sexist and naïve it is for Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau to discrimination against single heterosexual men in his Refugee Program, which violates established global human rights policies of equal treatment. The National Coalition For Men (NCFM) takes no position on whether refugees in general should be accepted in Canada or elsewhere. But excluding refugees just...

NCFM and James Lesmeister, a U.S. citizen of draft age, sued the Selective Service System (SSS), challenging the male-only registration requirement as a violation of the right to Equal Protection after the Department of Defense (DOD), in January of 2013, rescinded the ban on women in combat.  The Los Angeles federal District Court dismissed the case on the ground that it is not “ripe” (or, not ready to...

White Female Privilege and the Domination of Men It’s a fact. It’s official. Man is no longer ruler of planet Earth. Men lost that privilege way back in the Nineties. What do you mean, you never noticed? Okay, so I’ll admit men’s transition from the pinnacle of power was a subtle one. But if you’d have been paying attention, you could have caught a couple of tell-tale signs. Equal rights, Feminism, Women’s and Gender Studies were just a few of the more obvious markers. There we were, the most sophisticated, intelligent beings ever evolved. Expert hunters, brilliant problem-solvers. Providers and builders, engineers and scientists, soldiers and priests. We shaped the world we live in. We were the Masters of our own Destiny. And then somewhere along the line, everything changed. Sometime around 1990, human males were tipped from their...

An open letter to whiny college students: there’s more to life than being “outraged.” By Nikita Coulombe A recent report was released by Nobel Prize winner Angus Deaton and distinguished Princeton Professor Anne Case, which highlighted the insane levels of suicide among white middle aged males with a high school degree or less. They noted that half a million deaths could have been prevented in the last 15 years – about the same amount of people that have died in the US AIDS epidemic to date. Here are a couple of other facts: every 65 minutes, a veteran commits suicide. And, in California, 23 prisons have been built since 1980 versus just one new campus opened by the University of California system. Why is nobody outraged about this? Because men know that society doesn’t care about them if they...

NCFM Member Brandon Jones, Army Veteran indentured by the State of Washington to a deceitful, unfaithful, and lying woman who perpetrated paternity fraud

NCFM NOTE: The story of Brandon Jones is distressing. It shows the callousness of government when it comes to the rights of men. Brandon is not alone. There are thousands like him throughout the USA and elsewhere. Brandon is in fact indentured to a woman under the ruse of best interests of children. Reportedly, the woman is living with the bio-dad of a child for whom Brandon is paying child support. A child who may still call Brandon “Dad” because that’s what he called him for six years. There is no question the mother of this child committed explicit fraud. No question that she knew another man may have been the child’s bio-dad. No question that she committed criminal acts. So why hasn’t she been prosecuted? Why isn’t she making restitution to Brandon? Why is he paying her? Why isn’t...

As some readers may know, I have been monitoring the Justice Department’s audit reports on recipients of Violence Against Women Act (VAWA) federal grants, for over three years now. I chose to place an emphasis on the fiscal activities of these organizations for many reasons. My own objections, to a system of programs that nakedly discriminate against men by definition, are not enough, I reasoned, to substantiate why this Jane Crow approach to domestic violence (which is perpetrated by women as much as men, but the DC regime, the mainstream media and the general public all choose to ignore this), needs to be exposed for the racket that it is. As a functioning complex of programs, the DOJ’s own records show VAWA’s grants complex as an atmosphere of reckless, continual, unchallenged disregard for even the most elementary principles of...

#Gays Against Feminism: Because gay people are not feminist property

And use it without apology. Back when there was an actual social and political cost to being gay-friendly (let alone gay) I almost certainly would have been beat up badly had I shown someone that card. That was back when it was socially acceptable to beat the crap out of a gay man just for being gay. Or suspected gay.

By Gordon Finley Gordon E. Finley, Ph.D.With now literally hundreds of editorials and op-eds taking positions both pro and con on California’s SB 967 – as well as the broader issue of “affirmative consent” for sexual relations — it is virtually certain that the California legislature will pass and send to Governor Brown’s desk SB 967 in the coming week. The bill is titled: “Student safety: sexual assault.”Writing as a faculty member of more than four decades in four universities, it is tragically clear that this campus rape crusade bill presumes the veracity of accusers (a.k.a. “survivors”) and likewise presumes the guilt of accused (virtually all men).  This is nice for the accusers – both false accusers as well as true accusers — but what about the due process rights of the accused?Critically, and the reason why men are winning very...

What do you think? How Long Should You Wait for Fatherhood? Research suggests holding off until after age 25. By their late 20s, most men are done with school, established in their careers, financially stable and have a clearer sense of identity, making them more equipped for fatherhood.
