MNDnet: Your Alternate Daily News Source Â» Feminist Domestic Violence Group Equates Child Support Debtors with Batterers
By Glenn SacksAs Iâ€™ve noted before, misguided womenâ€™s advocates and the government-funded domestic violence establishment often equate noncustodial fathers with batterers, and use the specter of the wifebeater as a way to violate fathersâ€™ rights on a wide scale.
For example, here in California domestic violence was used to kill the California Shared Parenting Bill in committee in 2005. During the LaMusga move-away caseÂ in the California Supreme Court in 2004, domestic violence groups from around the country wrote and/or signed on to amicus curie briefs in favor of the move-away mother, even though the case had nothing whatsoever to do with domestic violence. (In that case Susan Navarro sought to move her two boys 2,000 miles way from their father to frustrate the childrenâ€™s relationship with him).

Â The idiots are at it again:
Extra cheese with that deadbeat pizza box poster?
CINCINNATI Customers at some suburban Cincinnati pizza parlors are getting something extra with their pepperoni and mushrooms.
The Butler County Child Enforcement Agency is working with three pizzerias to put fliers with information on parents accused of skipping out on child support on pizza boxes.It’s just one of the innovative ways agencies are trying to bring past-due parents in to pay up. In California’s Kern County, officials can auction parents’ vehicles and give the proceeds to the children. Virginia subpoenas cell phone records from service providers.Other Ohio Counties include similar fliers in water and sewer bills.An attorney who specializes in fathers’ rights criticized the fliers and says it could hurt children to see their parent on a “wanted-style” poster.

Â Â In the fall of 2000 legislators in Ottawa, Canada, introduced Bill 117 that provided that any woman could have a man restrained, imprisoned, and his property transferred to her all in the same day without any pretense of due process. Writing for the Ottawa Citizen, columnist Dave Brown noted:
Â Â Â Â “The new legislation is based on the premise women in abusive relationships can’t escape because they are economically dependent. The intent is to correct this by making it possible to immediately transfer all property to her.
Â Â Â Written into the scheme are ex parte applications. The alleged abuser doesn’t have to be present when the order seizing his property is made. Application for an Intervention Order can be made by anyone in a one-to-one relationship, including dating. Continue reading Ottawa’s notorious Bill 117 comes to Colorado 3/23/07
For sake of kids, pass law presuming joint custody By BRYAN IEHL and STEPHEN BASKERVILLE
SPECIAL TO THE REGISTER
March 20, 2007
“We have too many children in poverty in this country,” says Illinois Sen. Barack Obama on the presidential campaign trail. New York Sen. Hillary Clinton recently kicked off her own campaign by surrounding herself with her trademark visual: children. When Nancy Pelosi took over as speaker of the House, she did the same.
What children are for the Democrats, the family is for Republicans. Sen. Sam Brownback of Kansas has perhaps the foremost claim to be the “family values” candidate. But so far Brownback’s idea of preserving the family appears limited to opposing same-sex marriage, hardly a stance to set him apart from the Republican herd.
There is nothing new about politicians kissing babies, but politicizing children is a newer development. Iowa lawmakers have proposed a healthier alternative: The Iowa Senate Judiciary Committee unanimously approved Senate File 507, which would place into law the presumption of shared parenting in the event of divorce or separation. Continue reading For sake of kids, pass law presuming joint custody By BRYAN IEHL and STEPHEN BASKERVILLE

McCain opposes shared parenting reform, then makes racial remark
By John DiasToday, Republican presidential candidate John McCain was asked at an Iowa town hall meeting what he would do to reform family law to ensure children are guaranteed equal access both to their fathers and mothers, following a divorce.
A questioner asked McCain whether as president he â€œwould be bold enough to address the issue of equal access to children for fathers that have gone through divorce.â€
The Republican presidential candidate responded, â€œIâ€™m sorry to disappoint you, I am not going to overturn divorce court decisions. Thatâ€™s why we have courts and thatâ€™s why people go to court and get a divorce. If I as President of the United States said this decision has to be overturned without the proper appeals process then I would be disturbing our entire system of governmentâ€¦ For me to stand here before all these people and say that Iâ€™m going declare divorces invalid because someone feels that they werenâ€™t treated fairly in court, we are getting into a, uh, uh, TAR BABY of enormous proportions.â€ Continue reading McCain opposes shared parenting reform, then makes racial remark

The McCain/Fathers? Rights Incident (Part II)
By Glenn Sacks
In John McCain Testily Dismisses Fathersâ€™ Rights at Iowa Town Hall Meetingâ€“Video Available, I discussed the incident Friday when aspiring Republican presidential candidate John McCain contemptuously dismissed fathersâ€™ concerns over family law at a mid-day town hall meeting in Cedar Falls, Iowa. Shared parenting activist Tony Taylor asked McCain if he â€œwould be bold enough to address the issue of equal access to children for fathers that have gone through divorce,â€ and McCain testily replied, in essence, that he wasnâ€™t going to do a damn thing. To learn more, click here. Continue reading The McCain/Fathers Rights Incident (Part II)
How the Failure of Welfare Reform Created Our Lawless Courts
If you have been a defendant in any of our family courts since the “welfare reform” of the 1990’s, you most likely left there with an eerie feeling that the decision was made long before you walked into the courtroom. That should be of no surprise to anyone because the fact is; the decision was made long before your case was even filed.
How and why does this keep happening with such great predictability? That is because our family law operation is that way by design.Â Continue reading How the Failure of Welfare Reform Created Our Lawless Courts

Â Â Â The parentage of a child is its most basic interest but the “best interest of a child” is a much abused concept in today’s courts. However, the concept cannot be ignored.
Â Â Â Â With a few exceptions, such as current law that allows a child to be abandoned at any fire station, and with lesbian mothers, the maternity of a child even today is usually easily established although many cases where maternity is faked are known. Continue reading Best Interest Of A Child
