Lies Cost Lives
Yesterday the National Coalition Against DV held its annual legislative briefing. The briefing featured the usual round-up of abused women and stern-faced cops. Of course, no mention was made of male victims, false allegations, or children growing up in single-parent households.
Today the RADAR
lobbying team (Ron Grignol, Natasha Spivack,
David Root, and Edward Bartlett)
swung into action. They put together a flyer called
Violence Lies Cost Lives” which takes the DV industry to task for its
very creative notion of “the truth.” Click for FLYER!
Then they distributed a copy of the flyer to all members of the House of Representatives – all 435 of them! But today was just the beginning.
Justbefore the DC Festival starts, they will be holding the biggest lobbying event that our VAWA reform movement has ever seen. That day they plan to hit every single office in both the House and the Senate – yes, folks, they mean business!!! They intend to fix VAWA!
|One of the most
important issues in
family law is the SCOURGE OF VAWA. R.A.D.A.R.––Respecting Accuracy in
Abuse Reporting––a non-profit,
non-partisan organization of men and women, is
working to improve the effectiveness of our nation's approach to
solving domestic violence.

S. 3038 is the renewal of the Adoption and Safe Families Act of 1997 (PL 105-89), also widely known as ASFA '97. ASFA '97 is the program designed to promote and increase the number of adoptions from foster care by rewarding states that increased adoptions each year. As a result ASFA ’97 has been giving the states BILLION$ to kidnap and adopt out children on the flimsiest anonymous allegation, even known malicious false accusations.ASFA '97 sunsets on September 30, 2008.
|In the Senate RIGHT NOW is
the "Improved Adoption
Incentives and Relative Guardianship Support Act of 2008 (S. 3038)
part E (Foster Care and Adoption Assistance) of title IV of the Social
Act (SSA) and is (1) to extend the adoption incentives program
FY2012; (2) to increase the incentive payment to a state for
the highest ever foster child adoption rate; (3) to increase
payments for special needs adoptions and older child
adoptions; (4) to
revise requirements for the adoption assistance program to promote the
of children with special needs; and (5) give states the option to
for relative guardianship assistance payments for children."
Beginning with Mondale's
"Child Abuse Prevention and Treatment Act of 1974 (CAPTA '74), a
was launched upon
Soon after came "The Adoption Assistance and Child Welfare Act of 1980." The Act required all states to establish an adoption subsidy program and remove the financial disincentives to states by providing federal dollars for a portion of adoption subsidy payments for children previously eligible for the Title IV-E Foster Care Program.
Then came the "Adoption and Safe Families Act of 1997" (PL 105-89).This nightmare is now bleeding the Social Security system for $7 Billion a year.
CONSEQUENCES- The "Collateral Damage"
What quickly evolved was- Malfeasant "investigations" conducted under the color of law, consisting of character assassination, hiding exculpatory evidence, "evidence" fabrication from thin air and bald-faced lies both in Affidavits and Sworn Testi- mony in court, holding the kids hostage to coerce "cooperation", and obstructing parents until the "15 months of 22 months" clock tolls for automatic Termination of Parental Rights (TPR).
As evidenced by the Texas
fiasco, where the standard method of operation of CPS was put on
television in the world, there is not even the pretense of the
LAW "Reasonable Efforts" being made to prevent children being
kidnapped from their homes.
If people commit a crime against a child, then it should be treated as a CRIME, not as SORT OF a civil lawsuit. The accused is prejudged "Guilty", having no Miranda Rights, no Constitutional Rights, no due process, no fair and impartial court, no defense.
We urge you to tell your Senators to vote NO on both S. 3038 and H.R. 6307.
