Task Force Recommends Screening Pregnant Women for Domestic Violence.

Task Force Recommends Screening Pregnant Women for Domestic Violence.

USNEWS HEALTH reported that the U.S. Preventive Services Task Force recommended that all women of childbearing age should be screened for signs of domestic violence and referred for treatment if necessary. Apparently, according to the author, Serena Gordon, the new recommendations, published in the January issue of the Annals of Internal Medicine, apply to women with no apparent symptoms of abuse. The screenings may include questions like: In the past year, have you ever been afraid of a partner? Have you ever been in a relationship where your partner pushed or slapped you? Ms. Gordon notes, “The screening tools aren’t perfect, however. Available studies suggest that they can correctly identify between roughly 62 percent and 96 percent of women experiencing domestic violence” And, according to the recommendations, other studies assessing interventions found modest improvements in domestic violence, with no...

Feminist Feel-Good Science Explains Domestic Violence

By
Feminist Feel-Good Science Explains Domestic Violence

NCFM NOTE: the article below suggests that the authors of the research noted in the article are steeped in feminist ideology. It appears their project is disguised as science and the results thereof were in essence predetermined, or at least highly predictable. Feminists are infamous for using simple math to get nonsense. If  the numbers don’t work it’s no big deal, the researchers squeeze the data to make it fit their beliefs. Here, Campbell describes it as “rationalizing inconvenient results by re-configuring them to make a statement about social justice.” He concludes with, “They take statistics-as-science claims to a whole new level, and it feeds the rising problem of feel-good fallacies replacing data-driven conclusions.” Thank you Mr. Campbell.

NCFM Montana Chapter President Chris Thompson, “Fatherless leads to mass murder and suicide”

By
NCFM Montana Chapter President Chris Thompson, “Fatherless leads to mass murder and suicide”

In 1994 adolescent elephants were discovered senselessly killing other animals in Africa, later it was found due to the fact they had been removed from their fathers, creating a scene where “there are no adult bulls around to keep them in check…So they’re highly aggressive and are testing their strength on other animals.” Today, in the United States, sons are removed from their fathers at alarming rates, a by-product of the increasing number of failed marriages. We see the result in tragedies like the recent Newton, Conn. shootings and are left wondering “what is driving our children to murder?” Warren Farrell recently responded that the reported perpetrator of the Newton massacre, Adam Lanza, had begun a downward spiral following the divorce of his parents. Farrell continues that only one of the 62 mass murders in the past three decades...

NCFM NOTE: Upon reading this article one of our board members ask us to take it down because someone might think we condone sexual assault. Well, as you can see we agreed to disagree since your are reading this. That said, anyone who thinks NCFM or any of it’s members condone sexual assault in any way, shape, fashion or form is misguided. What we don’t condone is false accusations of sexual assault.

Warren Farrell5:19p.m. EST January 6, 2013 We need to find ways to stop the childhood injuries that lead boys to murder. Story Highlights • Our daughters do not kill. Why the difference? • For boys, the road to successful manhood has crumbled. • It’s time we go beyond fighting over guns to raising our sons. After Newtown, Conn., parents cried out, “What’s making our children kill?” But it is not our children who are killing. It is our sons. All but one of the 62 mass killings in the past 30 years was committed by boys or men. We respond by blaming guns, our inattentiveness to mental health, violence in the media or video games, or family values. Yes, all are players, but our daughters are able to find the same guns in the same homes, are about as...

Reauthorizing VAWA in current form could be grave mistake… or worse.

By E. Everett Bartlett, president, Stop Abusive and Violent Environments – 01/07/13 10:45 AM ET The 112th Congress adjourned last week without reauthorizing the Violence Against Women Act (VAWA). The failure of Congress to pass either the Senate- or House-approved (S. 1925 or H.R. 4970) versions was the by-product both of partisan wrangling, as well as acerbic personal attacks that were later derided by the Huffington Post as “incendiary and extreme.” But the last-ditch negotiations between Vice President Joe Biden and House Leader Eric Cantor side-stepped the most important question of all: Are VAWA-funded programs working? Most VAWA funds are directed to beefing up the criminal justice system’s response to domestic violence. But according to Angela Moore Parmley, PhD of the Department of Justice, “We have no evidence to date that VAWA has led to a decrease in the...

NCFM President files a class action sex discrimination lawsuit against the Los Angeles Fours Seasons Hotel Westlake

By NCFM Secretary Al Rava, Esq. NCFM president Harry Crouch is following on the footsteps of NCFM vice-president Marc Angelucci who, in 2007, prevailed in the landmark California Supreme Court “Ladies’ Night” sex discrimination case of Marc Angelucci v. Century Supper Club (2007) 41 Cal.4th 160.  Angelucci ruled that men who were charged more than women to enter a supper club did not have to ask the offending business for equal treatment in order to have standing to file a sex discrimination lawsuit.  NCFM’s amicus brief to the California Supreme Court was instrumental in the Angelucci decision. The latest NCFM-related lawsuit to champion equal rights for men and women and to eradicate archaic and illegal Ladies’ Night promotions, was filed by NCFM president Harry Crouch on New Year’s Eve.  Harry filed a class action lawsuit in Los Angeles County...

Women’s Duty To Men

By
Women’s Duty To Men

Women’s Duty To Men by JOE ZAMBONI on DECEMBER 28, 2012 The duties that American men have to American women are many, and consistently enforced by a variety of heavy-handed mechanisms such as mandatory jail-time, court-imposed fines, the yanking of your driver’s license, and separation from your children. As if that wasn’t enough to force you to comply, there is also being disqualified for financial aid in college, community shaming, and denial of sex. The duties of men to women very importantly include the duty to protect. This more generally could be defined as the duty to be drafted, to go off to war and die, to be maimed for life, or to be tortured by the psychological harm that one suffered as a result of one’s violent military experience. On a more personal level, this duty takes the form of the...

Out Of Desperation, North Korean Women Become Breadwinners by Louisa Lim December 28, 201212:11 PM Listen to the Story, NPR, All Things Considered, but remember NPR is pro women and anti men, so take this with a few grains of salt and a healthy portion of doubt. NPR creates the impression that unemployed North Korean men do nothing. They don’t cook, clean, do chores, look for work, help with raising children… they just wake up, wait for their helpless wives, like those above, to come home from work so they can beat them, then the unemployed husbands go to sleep, wake up and do the same day after day after day.

Charles Corry, Ph.D, Frontline officer view of domestic violence laws

Frontline officer view of domestic violence laws The author is a 28-year veteran of a metropolitan police force in a western state Mandatory and pro-arrest policies pushed by radical feminists and the federal government regarding domestic violence have all but eliminated officer discretion on the matter throughout the country. Fear of the potential consequences for using discretion has our officers in a headlock. Few have the moral courage to exercise it resulting in many unnecessary arrests that consequently damage the American family. Scenario: A woman has been drinking adult beverages throughout the evening. Her husband and she argue over finances. She tries to walk to the car and he grabs her by the wrist in order to prevent her from driving. She screams, pulls away and falls twisting her ankle in the driveway while the kids look on. The...

NCMF faxes letter to all members of Congress about the hypocracy of those pushing for Senate version of VAWA

Shameless Hypocrisy In recent weeks, Domestic Violence Industry operatives – including several lawmakers – have claimed the Violence Against Women Act needs to help “all” victims of domestic violence. Yet, these same people appear on talk show after talk show advocating for VAWA to provide for immigrant women, American Indian women, lesbian women…but no mention of men, heterosexual, gay, or other. The VAWA funded National Coalition Against Domestic Violence’s (NCADV) massive directory of over 2000 domestic violence programs notes how vital it is to advocate for “women and children.” Some shelter programs in the directory allow mothers with male children. Thousands of programs are listed for women. There are none specifically for males. Yet, the CDC’s National Intimate Partner and Sexual Violence Survey and numerous other scientific studies found men and women equally engage in partner aggression. Moreover, intimate...

NCFM sends letter to Congress to Stop the Violence Against Women Act’s War on Men

The “War on Women” essentially is a power and control grab and guilt trip diversion by the National Organization of Women (NOW) cartel.  No one is waging war on women. However, it is impossible to rationally conclude that political forces are not waging “War on Men.” The Violence Against Women Act (VAWA) is center stage to the War Against Men. NCFM Advisor Phil Cook and I over a decade ago discussed what I call the Women Industry Wheel (WIW), though it might be more aptly called the Women Industry War Wagon Wheel (WIWWW). Phil thought VAWA was the hub of the wheel while I still think VAWA is the grease that keeps it turning. The hub, in my opinion, is radical feminism’s “politically correct” influence and resulting control of our educational system, especially in higher education. Looking at things...

Gordon E. Finley, Ph.D. _______________________ By Gordon E. Finley, professor of Psychology Emeritus, Florida International University – 12/13/12 06:39 PM ET While the Violence Against Women Act (VAWA) claims to fairly protect all victims of domestic violence, in reality it intentionally discriminates against about half of the victims — men (“Progressive groups pressure House GOP to pass Violence Against Women Act,” Dec. 11). First, social science research literature is unambiguously clear. Domestic violence is initiated about equally by men and women; slightly more women than men are physically harmed, but men nonetheless still represent more than 40 percent of the physically harmed...

NCFM NOTE: This guy is stupid beyond belief. Judge McCree was barely hanging onto his judgeship after sending a nude picture of himself (waist up and buff) to his female bailiff. Her husband complained. Judge McCreep was censored. Then the jerk along with jerkessa Geniene La’Shay Mott played sex games in his office, get pregnant, and conspired to send Mott’s ex husband to jail for failure to pay child support! Who let this guy out of law school? But it takes two to Karmasutra all over his desk, chairs, couch, floor… Ms. Mott must have known she was committing adultery. She surely knew that conspiring with the judge to send her ex  husband to jail was at least tampering with justice. But the Wayne County Prosecutor’s office won’t charge her.

NCFM sends letter to Kansas City Chiefs re Belcher/Perkins murder/suicide.

NCFM NOTE: After numerous media reports exploiting the Jovan Belcher murder/suicide as a “domestic violence” incident we felt it necessary to send a letter to the Kansas City Chiefs. Various women groups used this horrendous family failure to promote their own interests including at least one that volunteered to work with the Chiefs to prevent such things in the future. We thought it might be more productive if an organization for men, that is an organization that works with men, one that better understands their needs, helped. Hence our letter. Here’s an example of the shameful exploitation of this incident to promote passage of the Violence Against Women Act, which by the way, if reauthorized would do nothing to prevent murder/suicide. “MSNBC contributor Karen Finney used the Jovan Belcher murder-suicide to attack Republicans. Finney stated that the Belcher tragedy...

Female Teachers Give Male Pupils Lower Grades, Claims Study

Female teachers mark male pupils more harshly than they do their female students, research has claimed. Additionally, girls tend to believe male teachers will look upon them more favourably than female teaching staff, but men treat all students the same, regardless of gender. The study, released on Thursday, told 1,200 students in 29 schools to place financial bets on who would give them higher grades: external examiners or their teacher.  Conducted by professors Amine Ouazad and Lionel Page, for the London School of Economic’s Centre for Economic Performance, the report said: “Male students tend to bet less when assessed by a female teacher than by an external examiner or by a male teacher. This is consistent with female teachers’ grading practices; female teachers give lower grades to male students. “Female students bet more when assessed by a male...

If they have worked all their lives, most men in the current retirement generation look forward to comfort in their golden years. However, if the family courts have assigned them permanent alimony, the golden years are enjoyed only by the ex-wife, as the former husband either is required to keep working or to continue to pay generally exorbitant sums to his ex from whatever he has left in old age. Permanent alimony today is not fair...

Permanent alimony virtually mandates single-mother households so that the recipient doesn’t lose their life-long alimony payments. Second, in today’s economy, many young adult children of divorce are in dire need of financial assistance. So, who is most deserving of the payer’s money: The former spouse, the children...

File a Federal Complaint

If you have specific instances of discrimination against male domestic violence victims by any government-funded DV program anywhere in the U.S., please send all evidence you have to the following federal agencies as a complaint, and state that this violates United States Code, Title 42, Section 3789d(c)(1). Give them as much evidence as you can. They are supposed to investigate it. After several months you may get a letter back saying there is "insufficient evidence" and that they need more information such as dates and times of the discrimination, names of the programs and contact info, names and contact info of witnesses, documents or records, and a detailed chronological narrative. So, re regarding evidence, the more the better. You can send the complaints by email, mail, or both. Send them to: Office of Civil Rights Office of Justice Programs U.S. Department of Justice 810 7th Street, NW Washington, DV 20531 Office of the Inspector General inspector.general@usdoj.gov oig.hotline@usdoj.gov
