NCFM update on the Army’s persecution of Major (Kit) Martin

Update of Major Martin Case at Fort Campbell  by NCFM As Major “Kit” Martin approaches his court-martial on May 9th, a flurry of activity and news media attention has been brought to bear; locally and nationally. As documented in our earlier posts about this case, there was the issue of the murder of a predominate defense witness, and two others in Pembroke Kentucky.  The witness, has been identified as Calvin Phillips’ whose body was discovered on November 19th after local authorities discovered two bodies in a burning vehicle just minutes prior.  The other two murder victims have been positively identified as Calvin Phillips’ wife; Pam Phillips and next door neighbor Ed Dansereau. Local Nashville Channel 4 Investigative Reporter Jeremy Finley recently documented and revealed a number of details and facts that suggest that Major Martin’s, now convicted felon ex-bigamist-wife;...

NCFM Member Tim Patten on “Misogyny and Bachelorhood”

By
NCFM Member Tim Patten on “Misogyny and Bachelorhood”

Misogyny and Bachelorhood Early on during the 2016 Republican presidential primary campaign, Donald Trump took umbrage at aggressive questioning by Fox News moderator Megyn Kelly at one of the debates. In addition to characterizing her as “not very good or professional,” Mr. Trump said, “You could see there was blood coming out of her eyes. Blood coming out of her wherever.” That latter remark triggered a firestorm, with the outspoken candidate being widely accused of misogyny—hating or disliking girls or women. Unfortunately, as with many of the words and phrases that are being carelessly thrown around in these days, they are not necessarily being used to make a thoughtful or coherent point; they are being deployed as weapons of gender manipulation and hate, coopted and maligned by radical feminists and other man-hating ideologues in a quest to undermine...

NCFM Member Mark Lesmeister opinion published in Houston Chronicle, “Advantages Galore”

Advantages galore Regarding “Trump’s innate sexism is an insult to all of us” (Page A15, Thursday), Ruth Marcus wants to remind us of the disadvantages female candidates face. Isn’t it time we explore at least a little bit the other side of the coin: that is, the privileges female candidates enjoy solely because of their gender? Here’s just a few examples. Hillary Clinton has never had to answer the “what did you do during the war” that dogged her husband and George W. Bush. As a woman, she is automatically excused from the expectation that she should have served her country in uniform. Second, when female candidates are attacked personally, the omnipresent chivalrous impulse to protect women, which is just another form of sexism, rears its ugly head. Think of Clayton Williams refusing to shake Ann Richards hand after...

You can download a PDF copy from here. The submission makes the following arguments: A comprehensive literature review demonstrates the risk factors that contribute to the prevalence of domestic violence. Gender stereotypes and gender inequality are not present. Taxpayer resources would be better spent addressing the risk factors for domestic violence and exploring solutions that have been proven to make a real reduction in prevalence rates. The picture of gender in Australia is not that either men or women fare better overall, but that each gender has its areas that...

NCFM Member Jason Dale, “Male Feminist Essentially Labels Men’s Rights Movement as being Political Extremism Essentially, Feminist author John McDermott, Ph.D Sociology, University of Victoria, has deceitfully and spectacularly associated the entire Men’s Rights Movement as being synonymous with political extremism, mentioning the terms “men’s rights” and “white supremacy” right next to each other, thereby deliberately attempting to mislead his audience.  This is shocking and deplorable journalism! Yet ironically, he firmly believes that the only solution to men’s problems is to view them exclusively through the lens of feminist analysis. In other words, according to McDermott and his fellow Feminist ideologues the only solution to the plight of men is for...

By
NCFM Member Tim Patten “Bachelorhood, Men Going Their Own Way Are Saving Lives”

Bachelorhood, Men Going Their Own Way Are Saving Lives Modern romance, notably love and marriage, is failing. Every year, millions of American couples see their relationships fall apart. For many males, however, the result is not something to get upset about. In fact, a growing number of divorced men are discovering their true purpose in life. They are moving themselves, friends and society toward something better, joining with large communities of men who’ve already rejected the glamorization of love and marriage. Bachelorhood and initiatives such as Men Going Their Own Way (MGTOW) are helping to rebuild esteem and save men’s lives. The truth is, women and society as a whole have been rallying support for eons behind the institution of marriage. Among other things, it’s been claimed that unmarried men die earlier than their married counterparts, which has helped...

NCFM Member Tim Patten, “Feminists’ Patriarchal Worldview Inspired MGTOW”

By
NCFM Member Tim Patten, “Feminists’ Patriarchal Worldview Inspired MGTOW”

Feminists’ Patriarchal Worldview Inspired MGTOW The roots of radical feminism, as well as women’s and gender studies initiatives, can be seen in a 1970s BBC documentary, Angry Wimmin (watch on YouTube), which offers insights on the origins of the women’s movement. Among those featured is Sheila Jeffreys, an influential lesbian activist, who speaks frankly about the movement’s mission as a “dedicated war” on men (Feminist Patriarchy Theory). Over time, the radicalism espoused by Jeffreys and others has had an insidious effect, promulgating widespread distrust of male virtues. Sweeping women’s rights propaganda has also altered the social landscape, undermining relationships between the sexes and transforming the once timeless ideals of love and marriage into relics of the past. The feminist patriarchy theory only divides the sexes and is fueling the popular phenomenon MGTOW, (Men Going Their Own Way). In fact,...

Re-thinking the midlife crisis I was recently chatting with a friend of mine who not only as a highly successful company, but has a non-profit where he gets to pursue one of his passions. To many, these factors alone would put him in the “made it” category of life. To top it off, he’s in good health, has raised great kids and has found a lovely woman he wants to marry. In just about every way, life could not be better, but he said there is still one thing gnawing at him. So far in his relationship he has kept his very high libido a secret from his girlfriend. His reasoning was understandable in a way – he’s not a public figure but he is a social one, and he did not want to scare her or to risk...

NCFM Member Tim Patten on Toxic Femininity and Rape

By
NCFM Member Tim Patten on Toxic Femininity and Rape

RAPE ! Rape is an atrocious power-act of sexual assault. It is also a word that is recklessly bandied about by women’s groups, who exploit it for financial gain and a quest for political supremacy. In fact, references to this inflammatory term seem as ubiquitous as the GEICO ads that blanket our airwaves. According to gender theorists, our so-called rape culture is a byproduct of a social setting where this heinous act has become pervasive and normalized due to societal attitudes about gender and sexuality. They say it is commonplace, an extreme manifestation of pervasive misogyny and sexism, and has caused post-trauma distress and health problems in a great many women. All men are potential rapists Some radicalized individuals go even further. They maintain that the fashion industry’s use of female models to market their products, Sports Illustrated’s swimsuit...

  Masks and Tiaras: How Princess and Superhero Culture Reinforce Sex as a Commodity and Male Disposability How much would you say the media influences how you see yourself? If you’re like most people, you’d probably say “not that much.” I know I want to feel that way. But how can we be sure? I’ve noticed an interesting trend amongst my female friends – all of us have felt at some point that there was a “wall” around us that someone else needed to climb in order to win our loyalty and affections. Why? Why do so many of us wait for “our turn,” for someone to come to us and sweep us off our feet? No doubt it has something to do with the classic tales of “Rapunzel” and “Sleeping Beauty” we all heard growing up than mere coincidence. And...

NCFM Member Tim Patten on “Heroism and Gender”

By
NCFM Member Tim Patten on “Heroism and Gender”

Heroism and Gender When a young woman is brutally gang-raped on a college campus, many men feel compelled toward bravery. Emboldened with courage, they will often challenge the perpetrators head-on, seeking justice for someone who may be a complete stranger. Such a response is called heroism, deeply valued across cultures. More broadly, when men are confronted with dangerous situations, they will consider strategic and heroic actions aimed at creating desirable outcomes. It helps that most receive training early on–through sports, play fighting and teasing from peers–about how to think and act courageously, which serves to refine and strengthen their natural instincts. They learn to quickly calculate alternatives and solutions and act on that information in order to survive. Still, not everyone responds this way, which raises the question of why some make the choice. History suggests that few of...

NCFM Board Member Tim Goldich on President Obama, The Most Powerful Super-Feminist has a Penis

The Most Powerful Super-Feminist has a Penis By Tim Goldich President Barack Obama is a powerful man. But when it comes to gender politics, he too is largely a mouthpiece for female power. In January 2009 he was pictured on the cover of a special issue of Ms. Magazine. There stands Obama in an iconic Superman pose ready to come to the rescue of women everywhere. But opening his shirt and jacket to reveal his chest, he is not Superman, but rather “Super-Feminist.” The editor of Ms. Magazine explains: “When the chair of the Feminist Board, Peg Yorkin, and I met with Barack Obama, he immediately offered, ‘I am a feminist.’ And better yet, he ran on the strongest platform for women’s rights of any major party in American history.” From his 2008 Father’s Day speech: “Too many fathers… are missing,”...

NCFM sends open letter to Florida Governor Rick Scott asking him to sign bill SB 688 regarding alimony and shared parenting

March 11, 2016   Open Letter of Support for Florida’s SB 668 PLEASE SIGN THE BILL Dear Governor Scott,   We at the National Coalition for Men most strongly urge you to sign SB 668 which would help to bring Florida into the 21st Century with Alimony Reform and post-divorce equal shared parenting. Florida’s current Alimony Laws are archaic and more closely resemble the family and economic structures of the 1950’s than the realities of the many family forms of 2016.  SB 668 will bring economic justice and equal opportunity to divorcing husbands and wives as well as enhancing harmony in the post-divorce family by attenuating conflicts over money. SB 668 also moves Family Law in the direction of post-divorce equal shared parenting.  We at the National Coalition for Men believe that Family Law should follow family research.  One...

NCFM Adviser Gordon Finley, Ph.D wonders “Are the Chickens of Social Progressivism Coming Home to Roost?”

Are the Chickens of Social Progressivism Coming Home to Roost? Gordon E. Finley, Ph.D. The Michigan Democratic primary was a close race which Secretary Hillary Clinton unexpectedly lost and Senator Bernie Sanders surprisingly won. The pundit analyses of this unanticipated reversal relied almost exclusively on economic explanations.  It looked to me, however, like something was missing.  The rest of the story, in my view, has to do with identity politics, gender politics, and political correctness. In 2007 David Paul Kuhn published The Neglected Voter: White Men and the Democratic Dilemma. The Democratic establishment never got the message.  Worse still, under the identity politics and PC agendas of President Obama, the only group in America that could be denigrated, despised, and discriminated against were white men and most especially straight white men. Looking at the primary results thus far, it appears...

Our world–from plants to animals to humans–is critically dependent on our ability to hydrate, nourish and energize all manner of living things. Increasingly, precious resources, including fresh water, the elixir of life, are becoming harder to find.

NCFM concerns about the Army’s persecution of Major “Kit” Martin.

NCFM concerns about the Army’s persecution of Major Martin. Malfeasance in persecution of Major “Kit” Martin overwhelms justice. The military court refuses to release Article 37 transcripts to the defense. The chain of command has thus far refused to hold accountable prosecutors for blatant misconduct. Investigations involve reckless endangerment of Major Martin’s fiancé and her children. Defense witnesses have been prevented from testifying. All or much of which has been orchestrated by Fort Campbell prosecutor Captain James Garrett and Special Victim Prosecutor Major Jacob Bashore, who is, unbelievably, being considered for promotion to Judge. Bashore is a central figure in the investigative thriller, “Three Days in August” by investigative reporter Bob McCarty.  The same prosecutor who railroaded another soldier, Special Forces Sergeant First Class Kelly Stewart, convicting him of sexual assault, based on a one-night stand and the delusions...

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.

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!

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....

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...

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 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.

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...
