Republicans are looking for a way
to return to their principles of
limited government and reduced federal
spending, a good place to start
would be rejection of the coming
reauthorization of the Violence
Against Women Act sponsored by Sen.
Joe Biden, D-Del. It's a mystery
why Republicans continue to put
a billion dollars a year of taxpayers'
money into the hands of radical
feminists who use it to preach their
anti-marriage and anti-male ideology,
promote divorce, corrupt the family
court system, and engage in liberal
Accountability is supposed to be
the watchword of the Bush administration,
but there's been no accountability
or oversight for the act's spending
of many billions of dollars. There
is no evidence that the Violence
Against Women Act has benefited
anyone except the radical feminists
on its payroll.
The Senate Judiciary Committee,
which is gearing up for a battle
royal over the Supreme Court vacancy,
has scheduled a hearing on the act
for mid-July. It's apparently designed
as a be-nice-to-Biden-before-the
court-fight event, since no critic
has been invited to speak.
Let's have a reality check. The
Violence Against Women Act's gender-specific
title is pejorative: it's based
on the false, unscientific, unjust
and blatantly offensive premise
that men are innately violent and
abusive toward women, making all
women victims of men.
The president of Harvard University
was publicly pilloried for months
earlier this year for implying innate
differences between men and women.
But the act is spending a billion
dollars a year to inculcate that
very notion in the minds of men
and women who are having marital
difficulties, as well as police,
prosecutors, psychologists and family
Feminists staged tantrums at the
suggestion of innate math-aptitude
differences between men and women,
but the whole premise of the Violence
Against Women Act is that men have
an innate propensity to violence
against women. It's not because
some are bad individuals or drunks
or psychologically troubled, but
because men want to keep women subservient
in an oppressive patriarchal society.
The Violence Against Women Act was
passed using such bogus statistics
as "a woman is beaten every
15 seconds" and "80 percent
of fathers who seek custody of their
children fit the profile of a batterer."
Remember the Super Bowl hoax, the
ridiculous claim that "the
biggest day of the year for violence
against women" is Super Bowl
Sunday? It's an assertion conclusively
refuted by Dr. Christina Hoff Sommers'
The Violence Against Women Act comes
out of Andrea Dworkin's tirades
of hate such as, "Under patriarchy,
every woman's son is her betrayer
and also the inevitable rapist or
exploiter of another woman."
The act comes out of Gloria Steinem's
nonsense, such as "the patriarchy
requires violence or the subliminal
threat of violence in order to maintain
Here is some mischief in act-funded
activities that should be investigated
in the coming Senate Judiciary Committee
The act refuses to provide any help
whatsoever for male victims of domestic
violence. Let's hear from professor
Martin Fiebert of California State
University at Long Beach who compiled
a bibliography of 170 scholarly
investigations, 134 empirical studies
and 36 analyses, which demonstrate
that women are almost as physically
abusive toward their partners as
The act encourages women to make
false allegations, and then petition
for full child custody and a denial
of all fathers' rights to see their
The act promotes the unrestrained
use of restraining orders, which
family courts issue on the woman's
say-so. This powerful weapon (according
to the Illinois Bar Journal) is
"part of the gamesmanship of
divorce" and virtually guarantees
that fathers are expelled from the
lives of their own children.
A woman seeking help from an act-funded
center is not offered any options
except to leave her husband, divorce
him, accuse him of being a criminal
and have her sons targeted as suspects
in future crimes. The Violence Against
Women Act ideology rejects joint
counseling, reconciliation and saving
The act denies that alcohol and
illegal drugs are a cause of domestic
violence, a peculiar assumption
contrary to all human experience.
In fact, most domestic violence
incidents involve those components.
The act uses a definition of domestic
violence that blurs the difference
between violent action and run-of-the-mill
marital tiffs and arguments. Definitions
of abuse can even include minor
insults and refusing to help with
child care or housework.
The act funds the re-education of
judges and all law enforcement personnel
to teach them feminist stereotypes
about male abusers and female victims,
how to game the system to empower
women, and how to ride roughshod
over the constitutional rights of
The act forces Soviet-style psychological
re-education on men. The accused
men are not given treatment for
real problems, but are assigned
to classes where feminists teach
shame and guilt because of a vast
male conspiracy to subjugate women.
The Violence Against Women Act-funded
centers engage in political advocacy
for feminist legislation such as
the "must-arrest" laws
even if there is no sign of violence
and even if the woman doesn't want
the man arrested, and political
advocacy against non-feminist legislation
such as shared parental rights.
It's time to stop the act from spending
any more taxpayers' money to promote
family dissolution and fatherless
WHERE THE TRUTH CONTINUES.....
You have the right to remain silent.
Anything you say will be misquoted,

The NOW, through
VAWA has established a Government
approved system of wholesale "Battering"
of fathers. Women join with this
destructive to children element

the father, depriving the children
of battering was seen within the
rise of nazi germany, and now we
have it here in America. Destroying
children, breaking apart families.
Lets put the
"sacredness", mutual respect,
love and trust back into "family".
Let us encourage the "commitment"
to the vows taken. Let us lower
the divorce rates and curb teen
pregnancy by reinstituting those
principles of family, because the
first and best line of defense for
a child is an intact family.
A woman should
conduct herself as a "lady".
Simply speaking : Don't act like
a "tramp in heat".
So does the right to be a "cock

is classic Radical feminist spin.
what fails to be considered is that
women can do wrong, can and do abuse

Subject: What is Battering?
What is Battering?
Battering is a pattern of behavior
used to establish power and control
over another person through fear
and intimidation, often including
threat or use of violence. Battering
happens when one person believes
they are entitled to control another.
Assault, battering and domestic
violence are crimes.
Definitions: Abuse of family members
can take many forms. Battering may
include emotional abuse, economic
abuse, sexual abuse, using children,
threats, using male privilege, intimidation,
isolation, and a variety
of other behaviors used to maintain
fear, intimidation and power. In
cultures, the perpetrators are most
commonly the men of the family.
Women are most commonly the victims
of violence. Elder and child abuse
also prevalent. Acts of domestic
violence generally fall into one
more of the following categories:
Physical Battering - The abuser’s
physical attacks or aggressive
behavior can range from bruising
to murder. It often begins with
excused as trivial contacts which
escalate into more frequent and
Sexual Abuse - Physical attack by
the abuser is often accompanied
or culminates in, sexual violence
wherein the woman is forced to have
sexual intercourse with her abuser
or take part in unwanted sexual
Psychological Battering -The abuser’s
psychological or mental violence
can include constant verbal abuse,
possessiveness, isolating the woman
from friends and family, deprivation
and economic resources, and destruction
of personal property.
Battering escalates. It often begins
with behaviors like threats, name
calling, violence in her presence
(such as punching a fist through
wall), and/or damage to objects
or pets. It may escalate to restraining,
pushing, slapping, and/or pinching.
The battering may include punching,
kicking, biting, sexual assault,
tripping, throwing. Finally, it
become life-threatening with serious
behaviors such as choking, breaking
bones, or the use of weapons.
