Whistleblower Mag – War on Fathers

Just received the following from ACFC ~

American Coalition for Fathers and Children: Email – Updates and News



The June issue of Whistleblower magazine was entirely dedicated to “The War on Father’s” featuring a cover story by ACFC President Stephen Baskerville with additional articles from a number of writers including Glenn Sacks. Many readers requested information on ordering copies of this edition to share with legislators, community leaders and members of the local media.  You may call the toll free number at 1-800-4WNDCOM to order this issue.  World Net Daily customer service can be reached at customerservice@worldnetdaily.com


Several people have asked why ACFC, as a Shared Parenting organization, is concerned with the Violence Against Women Act (VAWA)?  It’s fairly straightforward; there are several special interests standing in the way of shared parenting adoption around the nation.  In almost half the states domestic violence between partners is a factor for consideration in awarding joint custody and in the other half it’s a rebuttable presumption or absolute prohibition against awarding joint custody, let alone shared parenting.  Is it any wonder false abuse allegations are a ‘weapon of choice’ in divorce and custody proceedings?  For more information on this read ACFC’s ‘Family Violence in America’ report published May, 2006. 

As previously reported the House of Representatives appropriations committee approved funding for the Violence Against Women Act (VAWA) at $390 million for the upcoming year.  Representative amendments added another $25 million bringing the total to $415 million for this bill which undermines the stability of families across the nation.  Now the Senate will begin considering funding appropriations for the Act.  The White House recommended this bill receive no more than $347 million.  The Senate presents another opportunity to stop runaway spending on this legislation. 

Our colleagues at RADAR (Respecting Accuracy in Domestic Abuse Reporting) continue to actively work to bring the ‘other side’ of the domestic violence issue to light.  RADAR has been holding meetings with legislators in an attempt to slow the misguided use of taxpayer dollars flowing through this bill.  RADAR is asking for your assistance with this effort by contacting your Senators and letting them know they need to hold the line on VAWA spending.

RADAR’s efforts were recently endorsed by a RightMarch, an influential organization in politics.  Click here and respond to the call to action.

Mitchell Sanderson, coordinator of the North Dakota Shared Parenting Initiative reports that with three weeks remaining in the signature gathering period only 3,500 signatures are needed to place the initiative on the November ballot.  North Dakota residents over the age of 18 are eligible to gather signatures.  There are opportunities for signature gatherers all over the state.  Give Mitch a call at 701 331-0410 and volunteer some time for this important effort.  It’s a tremendous way to invest in the future of your children and be part of a historic event.

Everyone stay tuned, once the initiative is on the ballot there will be multiple opportunities to help.

  1. Good Luck to Mitch on that 3500 signatures! Having grown up in Fargo N. Dak. I do know that getting 3500 more signers might be more difficult then it should seem…Sooo…Help Mitch Out!

    That said, I have already twice last year contact both Sen.(s) Kyl and McCain (AZ) in regards to VAWA. McCain office never responded but Kyl’s sent out a “form letter” stating that Senator Kyl is “against all forms of abuse against women”. No one obviously actually read my letter. Of note when I sent Kyl a letter supporting his position on illegal immigration I propmtly received a “signed” letter from his office thanking me for my support. The good news here is Kyl is in tight race here this fall and maybe we can get his attention on this matter (and support). If he disagrees I will hard for his opponent. Sadly if we can’t a Republican Congress to stop this mess who will?

  2. The following is a response to a letter my family wrote to Senator Jeff Bingaman of New Mexico regarding the injustices of VAWA. I believe they wrote this letter after I was thrown in jail concerning one of my ex’s false DV charges. As you can see by the response, most officials in government are supporters of VAWA and don’t see the grave injustices commited against men by this and other gender-biased laws. And, even if they do see it, they consider it an acceptable exchange in the attempt to protect women from domestic violence. I wonder if they would feel the same if they were on the receiving end of these corrupt laws like many of the fathers and men in America. I guess it’s easy to give up freedom and rights to try and solve the problem of DV against women when it’s someone else’s freedom and rights that your bartering with.

    Thank you for contacting me regarding the Violence Against Women Act (V A W A). I appreciate your taking the time to write.

    As you may know, V A W A passed the Senate on October 4, 2005, and currently awaits further action in the House of Representatives. I agree that men are also affected by domestic violence, and that unfortunately sometimes men are falsely accused. However, all abused people have the same legal right regardless of their gender. I have been a supporter of V A W A because, among other things, it helps provide funds to domestic violence organizations. These organizations are dedicated to mitigating the devastating effects of domestic violence on all members of the family, not just women. I do not believe they would discriminate against a man who needed help because he had been abused. With that said, please be assured I will keep your son’s situation in mind should we debate similar legislation.

    Again, thank you for writing. I hope you will continue to keep me informed of issues of importance to you and your community.
