Stuff - No dating,thanks, just sex

 As a good kiwi father role model for my teenage daughter and many of her beautiful friends I am appalled at the reported promiscuity from this generation.Females feature in domestic violence and murder statistics, however female assault male charge cannot be found in the Crimes Act? You try and tell police that you were assaulted or raped by women and the cops will laugh in your face. Gender bias pigs. What the hell has happened to kiwi society? The moral fibre of this once proud Nation is non existent. We have the highest child abuse figures in the world and a silent government, now this? What a social engineering disaster this sad broken country is.Unfortunately the tragic thing is, I cannot see a new government having the mettle needed too change such a sad situation. Maori couldn't give a hoot about the sad indictment. It seems that society has put the younger generation into the to hard file.Have sex mate or get the bash.How could things change so much since my adolescent years?The sinister regime of Helen Clark has a lot to answer for!

Federal prosecutors announced that PA county judges had pleaded guilty to tax evasion and honest services fraud. The PA State Supreme Court overturned hundreds of convictions of low-level offenders.

Cleese's recession divorce discount

 Talk about Faulty Towers at least a recession is good for a brilliant man's wallet after a major depression

One wonders why a "psychotherapist" would need any annual divorce payments at all? Twisted gender hateful Judge Dread again .We must not forget the divorce industry and the Family Court are the Holy Grail for all women. It is a sordid place where lies are welcome and can go totally unchallenged without consequences. 

Surely she is trained and capable of making her own way in the world?

Cleese's recession divorce discount
By Sean Nicholls and Emily Dunn

Comedian John Cleese is breathing a sigh of relief after halving his £1.3  million ($2.7 million) annual divorce  payment to his third wife, Alyce Faye  Eichelberger, 64, an American psychotherapist to whom he was married for 15 years.

Cleese now has to pay £650,000 a year, after a US judge ruled that the original amount was excessive in the face of the recession, which had slashed the value of the actor's property portfolio.

Cleese is not alone. A host of former high earners in Britain are now seeking cut-price divorces, with former husbands returning to the courts to battle for reduced settlements and payments in line with their shrinking  earning power.

Recent prominent cases include that of Brian Myerson, a fund manager who claimed his post-divorce fortune had been wiped out, meaning he could no longer afford the £9.5 million he owed to Ingrid, his former wife.

In the original settlement Mrs Myerson received 43 per cent of her husband's assets. Myerson's 57 per cent share, however, was tied up in the shares of his investment company, which have plunged in value, and would
leave him £500,000 in the red if he complied with the divorce order.

And the advice from Mr Myerson's lawyer, Raymond Tooth, to men considering divorce? "Move on now while your star is low in the sky. You can escape with less."

Fathers4Justice are vilified for highlighting injustice for dads

Stephen Baskerville is a respected opinion and this sentence is the reason why NZ Batman flew in Parliament grounds. Fathers4Justice has put fathers back on the globe ;

"Groups like Fathers4Justice and protesters like Jolly Stanesby are vilified for calling attention to the confiscation and abuse of their children, when they are merely responding as any parent can be expected to do when someone interferes with his child."

Australian Politicians are as Democratic as Hitler’s Arsehole.

Australian Politicians are as Democratic as Hitler’s Arsehole.
Politicians, this is the Society you have created as you grovel to the feminist fascists to gain the female vote.
Twenty men, devoted fathers are killing themselves every week as a result of being denied their children, often as a result of the use and abuse of a restraining order.  And what  are Australian politicians  doing about this ?   Absolutely nothing .
Recently, an associate of mine, Nick, another father’s activist and devoted father, gave his daughter a present on her birthday . For this act of fatherly love he was arrested and held in jail without trial for 9 days. .
He is currently being held in jail again without trial, after being arrested.
His crimes? ‘Allegations‘ of breaches of a restraining order
I was arrested and denied bail for 2 months until my case was heard for breaching a restraining order-postal breaches of a restraining order
The ‘specially selected’ known corrupt magistrate, Phil Rodda, gave me 8 months jail for my heinous crime. (4 months suspended.)
When fathers denied their children ,driven beyond human endurance , instead of shooting themselves , start shooting politicians , then and only then will there be a massive change in attitude re the absurdity and injustice of Australian family law, in particular the use and abuse of restraining orders, which currently are used to evict a father out of his home and his children’s lives.
This letter has been sent to Victorian and Federal politicians , the media and others, and is being circulated world wide on the internet.
Ian Kay Activist for children not to be denied their father’s love and protection . 26-3-09 

dad4justice spent many months in prison for sending things like Christmas Cards and birthday presents to his abducted and alienated daughters. New Zealand politicians are part of Hitler's arsehole!

Feuding parents unlikely to get equal custody

"Kids often get used as spies, messengers and go-betweens ... when kids are stuck in a tug-of-war, it can take its toll," 

I must thank Christchurch Family Court psychologists Michael Davidson and John Watson along with sinister Court appointed child counsel Adrienne Edwards for poisoning my daughters against me. These sick creeps brainwashed my children with the assistance of scum Ashburton lawyers Paul Finnigan, Geoff Kean and Chris Robertson. All these people have lied about the truthful interactions between a dad and his daughters ,meanwhile court appointed Christchurch lawyers Siobhan McNulty and two faced Tony Greig actively worked against dad. Do not trust these filthy low down types.  These so called family court professionals are guilty of destroying two young girls and the death of my mother.  I wonder how many families and children these creeps destroy in a lifetime? Can I sue these scum of the earth for the horrific damage they have caused? No wonder I had no show of obtaining equal custody when so many criminals from the family court were working against my daughters best interests.

Feuding parents unlikely to get equal custody
By Carol Nader

Family Court judges seem reluctant to order that children spend equal time with parents in the most bitter and complex disputes, with only 15 per cent of such cases resulting in a 50-50 parenting split.

Mothers are more likely to be granted the most time with their children in the most acrimonious cases contested in court, according to Family Court figures.Of mothers involved in contested cases, 60 per cent were granted main residence, or the majority of time.Of fathers in such cases, 17 per cent were granted the majority of time. The analysis is based on almost 1,450 cases contested in court that were finalised in 2007-08.

Changes to family law that came into effect in July 2006 moved towards a presumption of equal shared parental responsibility and an obligation for the Family Court to consider shared time between parents when it was thought to be in the best interests of children.

The figures suggest that in most of the more acrimonious cases, judges do not consider it in the best interests of children to evenly divide their time between parents, or even to have a more lopsided shared-care arrangement.

Of fathers involved in contested cases, 14 per cent were granted between 30 per cent and 45 per cent of time with their children.

Most separated couples come to their own agreements without going through the court. Matters that end up before the court are the most difficult and contentious. But it is unknown whether that has altered since the Howard government changes, as the figures for before 2006 were not released.

The Family Court granted 50-50 parenting in just 15 per cent of contested cases, but the picture is similar for parents who come to their own agreement and have it finalised by the court. A separate analysis of 2,700 of those cases shows that 19 per cent ended up in a 50-50 arrangement.

Family law specialist Caroline Counsel, vice-president of the Law Institute of Victoria, said judges and parents always had to make decisions about what was best for children.

"It is not in the children's best interests to be put in highly conflictual households where there are two households at war with each other," she said. "And all you're doing is accelerating the conflict if you are
dividing a child's time in half. You are not giving that child a place where they can grow away from the conflict."

Australian National University associate professor in sociology Bruce Smyth said having parents share the care of their children was a growing trend, but there was a need to assess how children fared in these arrangements.

"Social change more broadly all around the world is moving towards increases in time sharing," he said. He said it was difficult enough to make shared care work when the parents got along, let alone when there was conflict.

"Kids often get used as spies, messengers and go-betweens ... when kids are stuck in a tug-of-war, it can take its toll," he said.

"The arrangements might be lasting if they're 50-50, but it might not mean that they're working well for kids."

Parental Alienation - Pulled from both sides



Pulled from both sides

Chethan Kumar

Studies show that kids who suffer through their parents' divorce have more conduct problems, lower academic achievement and social difficulties than their peers

o be hit hard by an adult orgy of emotions — ranging anywhere between love and care to anger and ego or blame games is a trauma unrivalled. It is, thus, probably normal if a kid goes harum-scarum trying to balance relationships with separated parents, and worse when he or she is experiencing parental alienation.

Of course, there is no common ground for such parents, but, is ‘parental alienation’ the only solution for the children? Is it right to impose one’s choice on the child? Questions are aplenty, answers, biased and few...
Parents are surprisingly naive when it comes to such situations. In an attempt to win over each other, they compromise on their children and create environments that are not suitable for their upbringing.

While parents assume their jolly-rides on ego-trips, children feel shallow and hapless, searching for those ‘magical hands’. Ironically, seldom is there a fairy tale — and often they are left to fend for themselves. In fact, studies show that children who go through their parents’ divorce have more conduct problems, symptoms of psychological maladjustment, lower academic achievement, social difficulties and problematic relationships with both parents. Therefore the onus must always be on childcare and other things must come after that. Though this may not apply to all children, it is definitely a reason big enough for parents to recognise and act against it.
The argument here, is not at all about whether parents have the right to get a divorce or not. It is just about how a child must be treated during such situations.

For example, reported statistics reveal that children who have single parents are about 5 times more likely to commit suicide, 32 times more likely to run away from home, 20 times more likely to have behavioural disorders, 10 times more likely to abuse chemical substances (become drug addicts), and 9 times more likely to drop out of high school.

Psychological damage

On the one hand, parental arguments, separation and discomfort caused by these incidents taunt children. And on the other hand, ‘excessive individualism’ and competitiveness among separated parents leading to parental alienation are also causes of disquiet.

Parental alienation, in most cases, occurs, when one parent disallows the other parent from communicating with their children for personal vendetta. Pursuit of personal goals by adults (parents) in the family, thus, causes damage to the children. To make matters worse, many parents often influence their children to choose one parent over the other and this is often traumatic for the child and has to be stemmed. So, what are the solutions to these problems that the children face? One, of course, is that no parents are ever separated – but, for lack of utopian land that would probably be run by flawless creatures, we will forego it. And for other light-minded ideas, we could have a ‘civil birth ceremony where parents are publicly given rights and responsibilities over the child’, or ‘a game of poker to settle divorce issues’.

However, there are not too many serious answers but the question itself. The solution, therefore, is in shared parenting, where parents understand the problem, and address it.

“There must be mutual co-operation among parents to understand what the child is going through and they must do everything they can to ensure that the welfare of the child is not compromised,” Children’s Rights Initiative For Shared Parenting (CRISP), President Kumar V Jahgirdar told Deccan Herald.

Being one of its kind, CRISP provides counselling for parents contemplating divorce or separation and tries finding solutions for the children. It also focuses on furthering the rights of a child to remain connected with both parents as it deals with issues related to unquestionable right of children to be cared for by both biological parents.

Among other solutions, parents wanting divorce should be given mandatory counselling on “shared parenting” and the benefits there of, by a panel of experts supervised by the family court.

As ensuring meaningful and balanced participation of both parents in the lives of children in case of separation is essential for the welfare of the child. And this will also eliminate child-custody battles and stress on both the parents and the child.

Judge Boshier has lost the plot !

 Judge Peter Boshier has gone against every recommendation contained in the Law Commission 2002 report ( Dispute Resolution in the FC) that urged the Family Court to become less intimidating and more user friendly. Judge Boshier is away with the fairies and completely deluded.The Family Court is a sinister bunch of filthy two faced criminals who enjoy creating traumatized children. The deplorable male suicide statistics clearly show how the place is a gender bias father hating machine. How do you sleep at night Boshier - you crater face creep!

Courts failing domestic violence victims

Last updated 13:03 21/08/2008

Relevant offers

Family Courts need better security, better information from criminal courts and legal aid for applicants if they are to work effectively, says the court's top judge.
Principal Family Court judge Peter Boshier addressed the Continuum of Family Violence Conference in Napier today on how the justice system treated victims of domestic violence.
Judge Boshier said the ramifications of family violence permeated through New Zealand society and the "horrifying" statistics were only just scraping the surface.
In 2006 police recorded 71,000 family violence related incidents. One in four women and just under one in five men would be the victim of domestic violence at some stage in their lifetime.
Judge Boshier said courts had an important role in responding to violence incidents. "But there is much that must be done both in and beyond the judicial system," he said.
"The security in our courts seems woefully inadequate," he said, when compared with overseas courts, and even airports and Parliament.
The threat of intimidation in courts was high and in one year 4231 items were taken off people entering New Zealand courts.
Judge Boshier cited items collected from the Manukau court house, which included pistols, knives, razors and scissors.
"A real worry is the knowledge that some victims will not come to the Criminal Courts to give evidence because of fear and equally they look askance at the Family Court because of the uneven standard of security. We can and must do better."
He said victims must have access to justice that recognised their state of trauma and disempowerment, and they must have access to better information and safety than just the mere granting of a protection order.
Judge Boshier said he would like to see all applicants properly legally represented and seen by trained Family Court staff to explain to them what they were entitled to.
The state had a responsibility to provide free legal representation if the applicant could not afford it. Duty solicitors were available for offenders in criminal courts.
Victims might not feel empowered and may unwittingly be put at risk without the "wraparound support services" being available, he said.
Family Violence Courts in some centres were a bold step in reforming the criminal justice system, but because of cumbersome nature of the criminal system, struggled to provide effective access to justice.
Judge Boshier said he wanted to see greater use of electronic confirmation of court orders.
There would be better safety for victims if the Family Court was diligent in reporting perpetrators who did not attend prescribed programmes, and if police actioned every referral and prosecuted where needed.
The "clunky" paper-based exchange of information between the Family Court and District Criminal courts could be done better with computers to reduce the errors, he said
Judge Boshier also said the Family Court would be better served if it had access to a defendant's complete criminal history, especially when deciding whether to continue a protection order or not.

Which is Sexist?: a White House Council for Men and Boys, or No Council for Men and Boys?

Which is Sexist?: a White House Council for Men and Boys, or No Council for Men and Boys?

President Obama created a White House Council for Women and Girls. Is it sexist to create a parallel one for men and boys, or sexist to not create one?

Dr. Warren Farrell [ http://warrenfarrel l.com/ ], a former Board member of the National Organization for Women in New York City, the author of seven books on men and women, and currently at work on The Boy Crisis, predicts "the boy crisis will be to the end of the next decade what the financial crisis is to the end of this decade." Here are a few hints as to why:

* 82% of the people losing their jobs since the recession are men.

* Of jobs ranked by the Jobs Rated Almanac as the "Worst" jobs (roofer,welder, etc.), 24 of 25 are comprised of 85-100% men.

* Boys do worse than girls on the crucial predictors of mental health and happiness: from reading and writing, to verbal and social skills; from ADHD and dropping out of high school, to drinking and drugs. When girls have problems, we blame the schools; when boys have problems, we blame the boys.

* Boys are a minority group in college, yet virtually all the single-gender academic scholarships are earmarked for girls, a remnant of the days when girls were the minority group.

* Boys are helped most by dad involvement. Yet divorced dads who don't have at least $100,000 to spend on a custody battle are highly unlikely to be able to prevent the mom from taking the children and moving away.

* In 1920, American men died only one year soon than women; today they die five years sooner.

* Men die sooner than women of 14 out of the top 15 leading causes of death, yet there are many federal offices of women's health and none of men's health.

* Boys' suicide rate increases as the male role takes hold: from equal-to-girls prior to puberty, to six times' girls by the age of 24.

World Net Daily - Barack against the boys

Barack against the boys
Posted: March 13, 2009
1:00 am Eastern

Unless there's been a monstrous misunderstanding, the man is muddled, malevolent, or both.
Barack Obama has just signed "an Executive Order creating the White House Council on Women and Girls. The mission of the Council will be to provide a coordinated federal response to the challenges confronted by women and girls and to ensure that all Cabinet and Cabinet-level agencies consider how their policies and programs impact women and families."
Under the rubric of this Council, feral, (mostly) female bureaucrats will "ensure that agencies across the federal government, not just a few offices, take into account the particular needs and concerns of women and girls. The Council will begin its work by asking each agency to analyze their current status and ensure that they are focused internally and externally on women."
Barack, however, has it backward: It is boys, not girls, who lag behind – and have for decades.
The 1972 federal law Title IX saw billions funneled into sex-based affirmative action programs. Schools – primary, secondary, tertiary – were feminized and boys demonized. The very system Obama has just reinvigorated has already instituted what Dr. Bruce Perry, a Houston neurologist, calls a "biologically disrespectful model of education." Disrespectful to boys. "Girl behavior [has] become the gold standard," seconds psychologist Michael Thompson, Ph.D., coauthor of "Raising Cain: Protecting the Emotional Lives of Boys": "Boys are treated like defective girls."
And when the defective "suffer" bouts of boyness – competitiveness, aggression, hyperactivity – they are punished, or medicated.
"In elementary school boys are diagnosed as having learning and attention problems four times as much as girls and are twice as likely to get left back, reports Peg Tyre, author of "The Trouble With Boys: A Surprising Report Card On Our Sons, Their Problems at School and What Parents & Educators Must Do." "Boys in preschool get expelled nearly five times the rate of girls. In both elementary and high school their grades are worse than those of girls, and more boys than girls drop out of high school."
It's not right to "fight gender battles on the backs of 9-year old school boys," pleads Tyre.
As American girls grow more abrasive, assertive and sexually aggressive, American boys become more violent. They are "the most violent in the industrialized world." This from the Public Broadcasting Service, which conceded that "on average, boys are doing worse in the classroom than they were 10 years ago."
The facts from Newsweek, another Holy Order of Obama, suggest Obama might wish to reconsider his barmy order: "High-school boys are losing ground to girls on standardized writing tests. The number of boys who said they didn't like school rose 71 percent between 1980 and 2001, according to a University of Michigan study. Nowhere is the shift more evident than on college campuses. Thirty years ago men represented 58 percent of the undergraduate student body. Now they're a minority at 44 percent. … At many state universities the gender balance is already tilting 60-40 toward women."
Yet everywhere the president looks he sees invisible glass ceilings. But mainly, Obama laments the worry women endure. Evidently his wife's adult life has been marred by more than affirmative action: When worrywart Michelle was at work, she was worrying about the girls; when she was with the girls, she was worrying about work. We can't have that. Besides, rescuing women from worry is necessary to "save the economy."
With bold strides into the nation's boardrooms, bedrooms and every other room in the house, the overweening president wants to make clear that "issues like equal pay, family leave, child care and others are not just women's issues, they are family issues and economic issues."
Barack's latest Brownian motion promises to unleash on struggling American businesses armies of strong-arming (and buff-armed, no doubt) Girls Gone Wild, eager for their pound of flesh.
Another of Obama's economic prescriptions for a deepening depression was to sign a pay equity act, during which he carped that women still earn just "78 cents for every dollar men earn – women of color even less."
Such false assertions rely on comparisons of "the average wage of all women working full time with the average wage of all men working full time." Scholarly reams have been written disputing this phony calculus, as it omits vital variables: How long the woman has been in the work force, her age, experience and education, or whether her career has been put on hold to marry and mother.
Just as women are more likely than men to have had an interrupted career trajectory, so too are they more inclined to enter lower-paying professions: education instead of engineering, for example.
Nonetheless, allow me to dispel distaff America's claims of disadvantage with a decisive argument:
If women with the same skills as men were getting only 78 cents for every dollar a man earns, men would have long-since priced themselves out of the market.
The fact that the wily entrepreneur doesn't ditch men in favor of women suggests that different abilities and experience are at work, rather than a conspiracy to suppress women.
This might help faltering "free market" feminists like the one from Reason magazine. She declared on the TV show "Red Eye" that the jury was still out on whether women were being stiffed in the workplace.
Unfortunately, our Fabian president, who can't think without a teleprompter, is beyond help when it comes to understanding the workings of the market.

UK Sacked judges could be named after Guardian Fol case

17 March 2009
The Guardian has won a partial victory in its Freedom of Information battle to reveal the names of misbehaving judges.
Justice secretary Jack Straw announced today that judges who are sacked for misconduct are in future likely to be named.
But he said each case would be considered on a "case by case basis".
Details of disciplinary action taken against members of the judiciary have in the past been kept secret.
Ministers are facing a legal challenge by The Guardian newspaper over their refusal to release details of historic cases.
From today, the Ministry of Justice will usually reveal the names of the coroners, magistrates and judges removed from their posts and the reasons for their dismissal.
Straw said: "We will continue to give consideration to the disclosure of relevant information in cases that have attracted a high degree of interest from the public and media."
The announcement coincided with the end of the first day of an Information Tribunal hearing in London.
The Guardian is appealing a decision by the Ministry of Justice and the Information Commissioner to reject its FoI request for the names of judges sacked for misconduct.
Representing The Guardian, Geoffrey Robertson QC said: "It is our contention in a nutshell that there is overriding public interest in every act by the executive to discipline or dismiss a judicial officer.
"The principle of judicial independence is one of the proudest principles this country has developed and given to the world.
"It can only be safeguarded if such actions and the reason for them are made publicly available."
He added: "The press have a vital watchdog function of communicating facts of great public importance to the public.
"Imagine the headline: 'Cabinet minister sacks judges'. That's news and that's exactly what we are talking about.”
The hearing was adjourned until tomorrow.
In the financial year 2007/08, 21 members of the judiciary were removed from office after facing disciplinary action - up from 16 in 2006/07.
The Office for Judicial Complaints (OJC), which handles misconduct cases involving judges, said the cases involved two tribunal heads and 19 magistrates.
One was removed for "inappropriate behaviour or comments", 15 for not fulfilling their judicial duty, one for misusing judicial status, one for motoring offences and three for criminal convictions.
A magistrate was removed from office for countersigning a passport application which involved stolen documents and a fake identity, the report revealed.
Another magistrate was dismissed because of "association with a sex offender", the report said. The magistrate had "failed to inform the local bench of the situation even after being interviewed by the police".

Divorce Kids sack mum

Divorce kids sack mum

http://www.news. com.au/dailytele graph/story/ 0,,25189957- 5001021,00. html

By Janet Fife-Yeomans
March 16, 2009 12:00am
A JUDGE has slammed two sisters for "holding a gun" to the head of the court - and the heads of their parents - in a bizarre custody case.
The outburst highlights the plight of many divorced parents, who guide their children through the drudgery and stress of Monday to Friday - only to see them vanish for weekend good times with the other parent.
Justice Peter Murphy spoke after the teenagers took their case to the Family Court, in a bid to leave their mother to live with their wealthy father on the Gold Coast. The girls, aged 14 and 15, have been brought up almost solely by their mum since their parents split up 10 years ago.
But their dad, a successful businessman, has recently remarried, settled with his new wife on a Gold Coast property and the sisters want to join him, the court has been told.
It is an unusual case that is being closely watched by family law experts as the court has to weigh up the wishes of the children with what is in their best interests.
The sisters said it's hard living with their mum who swears, is depressed, yells, treats them like children and doesn't allow them the independence they would get with their dad. They even said they feel easier talking about personal issues including their periods with their father's new wife than with their mother.
But Justice Murphy accused them of "holding a gun" to the head of the court and the heads of their parents after he heard that they had refused to go home - and proceeded to give them a good dose of common sense.
"It is very different, it seems to me, parenting children during holiday or weekend time than it is parenting children during week-to-week time when they are involved in their week-to-week activities including school," he said.
"It seems clear that the father has spent very little, if any, day-to-day, week-to-week time with his young children and later adolescent children, attending to the sorts of duties and responsibilities that are highly likely to cause stress within any family household."
However he acknowledged that the girls loved their dad whose business activities had been "clearly extensive and time consuming" for the past 10 years.
"I find it hardly surprising that they would want to spend time at his home with him and his new wife," Justice Murphy said. "It offers a number of enticing and exciting possibilities for them and if there is tension in the mother's household, it is hardly surprising that they would express the view that they have."
While the case has yet to be heard in full, the judge said that in the interim the sisters had to go home to their mother while still being able to see their father.
Family law expert Michael Taussig QC said it was an unusual case and the judge had handled a complex decision very fairly.
"If a 14-year-old and a 15-year-old have strong and mature views then they are usually listened to by the court but as this is an interim hearing pending a full trial then the status quo has been maintained," he said.

Another fob off from corrupt NZ government!!

 Look I have had it. I have shown many legal people my story and all agree I am the victim of a travesty of justice. However, as the culprits who orchestrated this evil major depressive episode are corrupt police, bent lawyers and dishonest judges I don't have a show in hell of ever clearing my name.That is sad for my children. Why should a corrupt system be allowed to do this?  I should have known it was another excursion into futility submitting to another pointless select committee headed by an ex cop. Oh well, might do it my way to even the score eh? What will make you listen to me. Warning; stop putting cases like mine in the too hard basket!! The Family Court and false allegations of domestic violence have destroyed my respect for this country. I will try and file in the court, because this injustice must be corrected for the sake of my four children. For example Chester Borrows, my daughter wants her gun license and Chester can you get your UK imported secretary to look up the meaning of a breach of natural justice? You won't find it in the government fob off dictionary.Looks like Labour who did not help fathers have been replaced by a blue team of National spineless gender bias Nazis.

Can you please tell me if my submission regarding the changes to the Domestic Violence Act has been accepted. Other people involved with fathers rights are boastful online about their date to present oral
submissions. Is my submission just another fob off just like the Judicial Matters and Care of Children submissions to this meaningless select committee?
Have the decency, if capable, to advise me on matters asap!

Good morning Mr Burns,

I can tell you that the committee decided to return your submission on the Domestic Violence (Enhancing Safety) Bill, requesting that you consider resubmitting you submission without material it was concerned would breech natural justice provisions.

If the correspondence from the committee has taken some time to reach you, I apologise. Every effort is made to communicate with submitters as soon as possible. I have attached a scanned copy of the letter sent to you.

STAR:CRAZY #1- a true hollywood story (Episode 1: Introduction

Lies built the foundation that created the court protection orders that have ruined my life. I have no money to try and clear my name and just like the bloke in the video I have all the evidence that can prove a women can destroy a man's life on false allegations without any consequences. The truth does not matter to a gender bias judiciary. How can these women get away with such false testimony?

Vulnerable children deserve better than this

Studying the case of Baby P, I found it hard to understand. Having been a social worker since 1971, I could not see how you could have observed the baby with his head shaven, and not have seen the significance of such an action, not have known that before the torturer proceeds, he needs to dehumanise.

What would Jesus do about the Family Court, CPS,etc,??

Tom Howse gives a splendid answer ;
Ha!  That's an easy one.. and every TRULY LOVING parent likely knows the answer..
Well, anyway, I can tell you *exactly* what He would do about the terrible and daily manifestations of corruption and destruction committed against parents and children within your typical nearby Family Court or similar Gov't process -
What would He DO about Family Court, CPS, and etc.?  Simple!  He would:
- *quickly* make a weapon out of cords and march directly, without any hesitation, right into that thick den of thieves, immediately flip over their tables of dishonesty, boldly call them out by name, fact, and truth, and then also send them fleeing away into the streets, as the rotten vipers that they truly are!  Remember: Matt 21:12 Mark 11:15 John 2:15 etc.
Yea, well, that's what JESUS would be doing today...  but, the *real* question is:  What are YOU doing about it???
I mean, really.. What have you made the *most* important goal and interest in your life?  What is it, really, that you spend the majority of all your free time doing and pursuing?  Is it in regaining justice for your relationship( s) with your child(ren), and/or, helping the affected one you love in doing the same, and likewise for other children and families out there?
OR, has the constant victimization taken its heavy toll upon you, wearing you out, attempting to make you lose heart, and trying to eventually just convince you to walk away from it all, little by little?  Do you now spend your time playing video games, drinking, drugging, vacationing, going out on the town, watching TV, hanging out, and/or anything else, instead of fighting for your children.. *most* of the time??  Now, come on - WHICH one really is the most important thing to you, your life, your future, and your legacy?  What do you spend most of your spare time on?  Hmmm?  It's ok.. you can self-reflect and just privately tell yourself.. nobody is watching right now.. 
The Bible explains: "Do not merely listen to the word, and so deceive yourselves. Do what it says."  James 1:22
If you profess yourself as any kind of Christian person, at all, with any level of spiritual knowledge, from even a basic beginner onward, then you already know to be a Christian man or woman, that
-- it means remembering you ARE the head, and not the tail.  Deut 28:13  Isaiah 9:15  etc.
-- it means remembering you are NOT to spread lies and/or gossip.  Exod 23:1  Prov 6:16-19  etc.
-- it means remembering you ARE to expose the evil deeds of darkness.  Eph 5:11  Numbers 25:4  etc.
-- it means remembering you ARE to witness the truth of things to the world.  Acts 1:8  Matt 28:19-20  etc.
Yes, so, if you call yourself a Christian, you are *not* to be merely a couch potato, but you are to speak out against injustice, and do it actively, precisely because it is wrong and harms people falsely..  You are supposed to do something about it, just like Jesus did, when He saw such *large amounts* of filth and corruption *harming* the people.
But, what does that mean, in our struggling quest to reform government practices of victimization upon the family unit - upon fathers, upon mothers, and even upon the children, themselves?  Sure, you might be one of the many people who are managing clusters of related activists, one of whom are developing legislation drafts, of who are creating flyers and videos and graphics and news items to pass around the airwaves, of who are crunching data to expose unlawful practices, of who are lobbying their representatives, of who are hosting useful talk shows, of who are doing any of a variety of things to help..
It all MEANS that, as an essential part of the Great Commandment directed at the end of Matthew, you ARE to speak out against these lies, and you ARE to righteously speak up for restoral of truth and justice, even unto the ends of the earth.. i.e., you are to engage in action and communications with others, and make change happen, by spreading the truth.
But, you/we *must* do it together, as groups and chains connected, not by trying to do it all alone..  You MUST trust and share with others in mutual help, regardless of how many times you have been "burned" in life.  While you may be one of the very rare few who scored an individual victory against the government in your own little neck of the woods, you cannot ever possibly hope to win, all by yourself, or even with the full-time help of a mere couple/few dozen people standing at your side, when you are literally trying to break down the injustice done by the sheer scope, power, influence, control, might and manpower of the largest organization upon the entire planet, the United States Federal Government.
Remember, the core problem IS the Federal Government being involved with Family, in the first place, where it has no Constitutional authority, nor common sense basis, with which to be messing around in the daily affairs of..  In the United States, since the very beginning, Family Law was always properly and solely a "state law matter", and for good reasons.
You can rest assured, remembering that before the Federal Government started its own direct involvement in The Family, beginning in the mid-1970s (just after the wave of "No-Fault" divorce laws were passed by the many States), that in America, it had been generally common and long-standing knowledge that:  divorce was rare, most children always grew up with both of their parents and knew them for life, and reports of children being abused and neglected by the hands of their own immediate family were practically unheard of... and the wealth and assets of the average family remained and grew within the family, families generally stayed together for life, and people were generally happier, more or less.
Yes, you can rest assured that your State's local judge would NOT have issued custody and other flawed orders upon the lives of you and your children, and would -not- spend its -own- time and manpower endlessly harassing you and others like you, if it were not for the very lucrative federal taxdollars (*our* money..) that the States are so hungry for.. dependent on..
In other words, confirming that the duo-danger of accepting Federal "carrot" funding, plus its automatic tag-along Federal "stick" conformity of implementing and using certain kinds of family policies, laws, rules, regulations, procedures, and actions, is the root of the problem. Once again, money is exposed as the root of evil, as it always has been.
Many activists concentrate in groups at the state or local level.  Many activists concentrate on one or more certain topics or specialties, like family court, cps, support, moveaways, alienation, false allegations, and etc., etc.  Many activists concentrate within a wide variety of research and development stuff, like pro se legal, making graphics and video, blogging, drafting legislative type language, building rallies, crunching data for exposing patterns, and still many more action items.
However, while the single common hope and desire and dream, of EACH and EVERY ONE of these myriad of many activism efforts is to recruit more people into awareness, leading to more support.. and eventually therefore, to cause the actual desired changes and reform done and accomplished. . *very few* organized sets of activism leadership out there ever seem to bother considering geographic coverage in their early planning, but geo-coverage is CRITICAL, if you are actually serious about recruiting, joining, and organizing large and vast numbers of people into an action network..
These are the reasons why the United Civil Rights Councils of America has been built over the past five (5) years -- to blend the cream of the crop of visionary leaders, from all across the USA, also as naturally representing the entire spectrum of reform activism efforts, to simply plug their *geographical* position/role into the UCRCoA "subway system", and to therefore reap the huge benefits of already having established "baskets" for collecting people by county and state, anywhere and everywhere they may be and already are out there.  The centralized UCRCoA network is all tied together on the main website, http://unitedcivilr ights.org, where any average Joe Q. Public and Mary T. Citizen out there -- ANYWHERE in the USA -- can *immediately* click through to find and connect to listed family rights reform leaders, in their OWN State, and especially in their own County or Counties.  Some 3140 individual Yahoo! Groups, one for each and every single County (Alaska = "Borough", Louisiana = "Parish") and Independent City out there, everywhere across the entire USA, plus an even stronger Yahoo! Group dedicated for each one of the 50 States, plus a few dozen assorted other task force type, dedicated Yahoo! Groups, are all tied together and found, along with the actual listed leaders, themselves, on the main website, http://unitedcivilr ights.org
All told, there are over 100 different family rights reform organizations, represented by some 230-240 *listed* State Directors sharing leadership of the 50 different States (some also dual as higher Regional and National positions), while another 400+ *listed* activists have combined with all those other leaders, to together cover roughly 1000 of the USA's 3140 counties, including over several hundred of the most populated (most important) counties in the Nation..  Also, there are some 12k-14k couch potatoes out there, scattered across the county groups, and often, there are already 5s, 10s, 15s, and 25s of people - now - in the groups for the more populated counties.. i.e., there is, like, 100-200 new people just waiting to be led, in almost every State... That's the connect-up job of all listed UCRCoA State Directors.
UCRCoA's main premise is that government has "run amok" upon each and every member of The Family, by victimizing dads, victimizing moms, victimizing children, and other close family members, by daily ignoring and trampling of the very same basic due process and inalienable rights that this once-great Nation was originally founded upon, in the first place.
Every listed UCRCoA leader is supposed to be up to speed on the fact that government WANTS the two genders to fight amongst themselves, which keeps the people confused and preoccupied, while government continues the same ol' thing.  The *best* rights and protections of each Dad, of each Mom, and of each Child, come inherently from the built-in rights and protections of the entire Family Unit.  UCRCoA is blended for coverage of the different "sub-topics" of victimization, and networked for coverage of geography.  Each listed UCRCoA leader, anywhere and everywhere, should always stand ready to direct ANY member of the general public, towards one or more examples of activists fighting for a given sub-topic, and should NEVER involve any form of gender discrimination within his or her contacts and communications.
Note: by covering the 952 most populated USA counties with an active, listed team leader, we leverage 6/7ths of the entire American population.  The other 2000+ counties out there are pretty sparsely populated in comparision, but we will certainly also include, use, and empower the people gathered on those local county groups, as well.  However, the primary goal remains to finish saturating a coverage network of leadership, with at least those 952 very important counties covered by an active, listed local team leader.  At that point, we can effectively launch and do just about anything we need/want to.
WHY organize as a national blended network, interconnected with states and counties all down the line?  Again, because the core problem IS the entire country, i.e., at the Federal level, and fighting that beast necessarily means fighting all of its arms and legs and fingers and toes, at the same time..  Such a network naturally provides interaction with vast numbers of the public, everywhere, i.e., naturally provides a huge command and control structure, resulting in massive numbers of people following through on simple action requests, and providing measurable successes "on the street", so to speak.
TIRED of waiting on other organizations to finally build a huge army, so we can actually HAVE our justice, and be all DONE with this ridiculous nonsense?  Why not just volunteer as a state and/or county listed leader within UCRCoA, and join the other visionary activists who are ready to work together, now, for the common goals and good:
United Civil Rights Councils of America
"Gender neutral. Child positive. Constitution mandatory."
Don't JUST be involved, as a member..
BE a listed leader, actively involved for success!

Is this sexist UN job going to Helen Clark?

Office on ‘gender’ proposed for UN
Stephen Lewis, former UN Special Envoy on HIV/AIDS in Africa proposed a radical overhaul of the UN, starting with a $1 billion ‘gender’ office.
By Editor  Monday, March 2, 2009
At a forum hosted by the Carnegie Council for Ethics in International Affairs in New York this week, a former top United Nations (UN) official criticized the UN’s “deplorable” record on women and the “the hypocrisy within the UN” on gender.
In a presentation entitled “The United Nations and Gender: Has Anything Gone Right?,” Stephen Lewis promoted a radical overhaul of the United Nations, starting with a the creation of a new, billion dollar gender office. 
Lewis, the former UN Special Envoy for HIV/AIDS in Africa and a former Deputy Director of UNICEF, has long been a vociferous supporter of the creation of a “fully-resourced” women’s agency. Such an agency could change the UN and end the “suffocating patriarchy” with a new “sensibility of collaboration.” Lewis continued that this, “would not only help women but rescue the UN from some of its worst behavior.” More...

A MELBOURNE father of three has been jailed for sending a birthday card to his daughter.

I can't find the internet link to this story. I wonder why?
My children were abducted from my life, so after 6 months I sent birthday and Christmas cards to my estranged daughters.I sent the package to the maternal grand parents via mail post, because I did not have a clue as to the whereabouts of my daughters and ex partner . I was shell shocked when police arrested me for sending cards that contained presents and cards for my daughters. I got locked up for two weeks in Paparoa  (C Block remand) prison for two breaches of the temporary Family Court protection orders. Prisoners did not believe me when they asked what I had done wrong. The Family Court is evil and devoid of natural justice. My family could not understand the unlawful gender discrimination. The same prisoners said the same thing year after year, as police used me a whipping dog, because I would not stop fighting to clear my name as a credible father. I bump into the same cops with my court work all the time. They have said, sorry mate no hard feelings. I say, tell that to my deceased mother and my four children who had to witness the lengthy persecution.
Birthday ban
Dad jailed over card
Sunday Herald-Sun (Melbourne, Australia)-
March 1, 2009
Laurie Nowell
A MELBOURNE father of three has been jailed for sending a birthday card to his daughter.
The man ``Mick'' -- who cannot be identified for legal reasons -- was locked up in a suburban police station for seven nights and spent another in the tough Melbourne Custody Centre. He says he was surrounded by drug addicts and people charged with violent offences during his ordeal last month.
Mick claims he is a victim of a family law system that is biased against fathers. ``I was jailed for nine days and eight nights for sending my 11-year-old daughter a birthday card,'' he said. ``Apparently I broke an intervention order. It's ludicrous and it breaks your heart.''
The 51-year-old is estranged from his wife and claims she has brought a series of intervention orders against him, banning him from contact with his children, without any evidence. ``Until my wife divorced me I was a legally unimpeachable citizen -- now I'm being treated like a criminal just because I want some contact with my kids,'' Mick said yesterday. ``And that contact was ended arbitrarily without even a hearing or the presentation of evidence.
``In a court of law, if you are accused of something you are supposed to have the ability to cross examine your accusers and call witnesses. `In the secret chambers of the Family Court you are not guaranteed that at all.''
Mick says the experience has cost him $20,000 and his career as a writer. ``It's a plundering and looting exercise on the part of lawyers involved in this and there are no juries or scrutiny by media to keep them accountable, '' he said.
The Sunday Herald Sun was denied access to documents relating to Mick's case and lawyers for his estranged wife declined to be interviewed. Historian and academic Prof John Hirst this week called for an overhaul of family law. ``The court is not enforcing its decisions, the costs of going to court are onerous and there is little public accountability, '' he said.
