In secret courts with NO juries, Our Children, our families, our culture, our future under attack from within, organised crime graft profiting from crime and judicial corruption ambush psychological war against Australian Children and Families, with destructive and lethal consequences’.

Antisocial Narcisstic socialist feminist treachery, bigotry and treasons under the Australian constitution we can not receive fair justice from this judiciary, FCA has been overrun by this foreign political violent power sociopathic pac, EMILY’s List is a political action committee (Super PAC) “More women in parliament, on corporate boards and in our courts“.

Feminist antisocial sociopathic pac or any other PAC’s have no place in the ‘Australian Commonwealth’ courts, by way of constitutional separation of power, it is treason, complete disregard for children and law, unlawful oppression and tyranny.


Feminist antisocial sociopathic pack, are as is Syria’s antisocial sociopathic pac, North Korea’s, Soviet Russia’s, China’s, Nazi antisocial sociopathic pac.

They exploit and abuse children and families with impunity, in their ambitions of power to create a socialist feminist republic, money through children via the courts. “Early Money Is Like Yeast” (i.e., it raises dough), feminism is a MSS KGB fuelled construct.

Women Against Feminism

Let us therefore animate and encourage each other, and show the whole world that a Freeman, contending for liberty on his own ground, is superior to any slavish mercenary on earth. George Washington (22 February 173214 December 1799)


Albert Einstein once said “The definition of insanity is doing the same thing over and over again and expecting different results”.

Family courts are designed to ambush people, not deliver justice.

Socialists are the most antisocial dangerous deadly animals on the planet.



The General hopes and trusts that every officer and man will endeavor to live and act as becomes a Christian soldier defending the dearest rights and liberties of his country. George Washington (22 February 173214 December 1799)

Kids do best in the care of their family, feminism money and power, egocentric sociopathic doctrine, profits from slandering their victims, rights for women but not men and boys.

Sociopaths notably neglect kids, is why they promote child care, instead of family care. is not a gender thing, humane means ethically and morally, some are genetically inhuman, evil gene, incapable of true humane behaviour, looks human, sounds human, not human.

It is inhuman, sociopathic doctrine, sociopaths, psychopaths are not human, incapable of true ethic’s and moral, is a different species, know as speciation.


The Positive Impact of Fathers Involvement is ignored for profits, with devastating consequences for our children and there lives.




Insanity: doing the same thing over and over again and expecting different results.

Political violent politically bigoted Satins Star Chamber Courts, like Saddam Hussein, Bashar al Assad, ALP do not give a crap about you or your kids.

LNP, Mr. Tony Abbott we need to protect our children and families from family court predators.

Stop sociopathic socialist state corruption in FLC and their iron curtain.

Stop graft, exploitation and abuse in the child trafficking industry.

1. Repeal rescind revoke and annul 121. Family Law Act (FLA) their iron curtain secret gag law stopping communication with the Australian public, covering corruption exploitation and abuse.

2. Open the court objective truth, juries on appeals, not subjective bigoted parasitic judiciaries.

3.  Abolish legal aid. Stop funding corrupt illicit sex discrimination. Legal Aid should be nothing more than a self help webpage, not slush funds for politically violent corrupt law firms.

Judges on annual contract and review, based on quality of character or honour, cut their funding and pay.


Family courts are an abomination of treachery sedition and corruption, absolute power corrupts absolutely; John Dalberg-Acton, not in the least children’s interest to subject them to these sociopathic animals.

Humans can, inhuman’s can not self govern, Human the quality of being humane; kindness; benevolence. inhuman lacking human qualities of compassion and mercy; cruel and barbaric, not human in nature or character.

We are facing malignant evil, just doesn’t play by the rules, no ethics or morals.

The corruption of the Australian family courts is so complete and being not only ignored by all levels of government, both the socialist left ALP and the Fascist right LNP are both sociopathic, Narcisstic, exploiting as is sociopathic feminism.

Vote for anyone that doesn’t give preferences to ALP (socialist) or LNP (fascist)

The democratic system we have is out of date, where the swindle is, we surrender our democratic vote to fearless leader A B C or D and funky party A B C or D gives us justice, maybe, not likely, not ever.

It is tyrannical because the parties are based on hierarchy, hierarchies
form pyramid structures; there weakness is the points, all the power is focused
at the top, an unjust structure, where you are ignored.

The only real solution is true and pure democracy, pure democracy forms
spheres, mathematically superior, hyper mathematics, and universal law.

Do you form hierarchies with your friends or spheres?

Direct democracy via technology is the only way we will get true justice …



Whereas it is essential, if man is not to be compelled to have recourse, as a last resort, to rebellion against tyranny and oppression, that human rights should be protected by the rule of law.

Lawful Rebellion – Clause 61 Magna Carta (1215) That all our law comes…

…And we shall procure nothing from any one, either personally or indirectly, whereby any part of these concessions and liberties might be revoked or diminished; and if any such thing has been procured, let it be void and null, and we shall never make use of it ourselves or through someone else.

Australian holocaust there are some 2 to 4 deaths per day directly Family court Australia related, that goes unnoticed, we really need a commission overseeing FCA, begs the question why LNP are funding feminist industries Australia?

We cant build families on Marxist socialist feminism or build a nation, as socialism fascism communism, why are we allowing feminism to overrun or courts, public services and universities.

George Christensen MP  in Parliament has already described and explained feminism is a’ Trojan Horse’ .

“Education is the most powerful weapon which you can use to change the world.”
―     Nelson Mandela

You are naïve if you go to the Australian Family Court in good faith, believing you will get “high-quality and timely judgments” from the FCA judiciary, they are openly dysfunctional, antisocial, lie, slander and cheat, threaten and abuse, narcissism.

There really is no rule of law in family court, judges just dictate and lie, open cesspits of cronyism and corruption, there needs to be open jury trials only in family courts, now only criminals get juries, where children need them.

There would be so much less cost and waist if public employee’s were held accountable to we the people. Corruption is just ignored. Not good business not civil society.


The three dogs of family law courts are feminism, socialism and capitalism.

Feminism is egocentric antisocial sociopathic controling and manipulation, its crowning achievement is ABORTION killing babies, an ideal is the sum of its maxims, the axiom of feminism it is an abortion, if a feminist believes in abortion by this premise accept their maxima of self abortion.

There is noting more violent than abortion, is that in the child’s best interest?

The swindle with abortion is the at certain intervals, the ovaries release an ovum, which passes through the fallopian tube into the uterus.

The fertilization of the ovum with the sperm occurs at the ampullary-isthimic junction only.

Once the ovum is released it is not part of the women’s body, and when fertilised with sperm it is a separate human life, that they chose to kill, “pro-choice” to kill.

We are up against a well funded well organised massive group of animals focused on power and money, the very same as facist and socialist ‘PAC’s/.

Most DV and abuse against children is by women, given that DV between men and women is nearly 50/50, = most DV is by women.

This  finding has  been confirmed  across nations and cultures by  pre-eminent violence researcher Murray Straus, whose 2007 paper concluded that dominance by the female.

Stop violence against children

This proves feminism is a false premise, but a multibillion $ industry.

I’m sure the MSS and the KGB are having a good laugh at ASIO CIA MI5 and have a lot to do with the feminist movement, they have the same tactic’s, the leading feminist here is Julia Gillard, owner of Emilie’s list, and has Russian ties, our national security agencies are a joke, they should be telling the world about what human rights abuses going on in the eastern block.

Today there are 30 million men women and children in forced socialist  labor camps, what do you think feminists will do?

Reality is we need to protect our children from all that will do harm, is our only reason for existence, when it comes to that I for one am pro-choice, what ever force or action that takes, we can not count on any government as has been proven time and time again.

The are 30million or more men women and children locked up in socialist Labor camps today. Free the people with free democracy.

Judicial government corruption dishonesty disinformation tyranny, it is a psychological war on families, this is where Australia is going fascist / socialist / feminism, I don’t think we will be able to stop it.

All law and democracy is designed to address dysfunctional ‘Anti-Social’ behaviours and events, to allow social civilised society to flourish to its full potential, the hieratical judicial system is easily corrupted and in its self a dysfunctional failure.

The Australian Child Trafficking Industry is the same, as is in NZ, USA, Canada, Europe, world over.

We are a common people with a common cause a common enemy.

“The Strength of the Constitution Lies in the Will of the People to Defend It.” ~Thomas Edison.

They are using children as bait, ransoming children, when strangers start lying, It takes no leap of imagination to realise you are dealing with corruption, and sociopathy.

Family courts world wide have degenerated into sociopathic antisocial cults and collectives, commonly know as gang stalkers, driven by money and political violence.

Judges like all public servants need to be on annual contract, under constant review.

The real issue we are facing is the dominating prevalence of sociopathic antisocial individuals within society, up to ~1 in 100, in Australia with its current population is some 230,000 psychopath’s, their extremely controlling manipulative and destructive behaviour, the very reason we have judicial and governments systems, that in them selves attract controlling sociopaths like flies …

Bobby Dickerson “Agreed but internally the system is corrupted thru and thru.  Unless everybody gets on the same page, gets past the shock and awe of what has happened, the loss, the grief we will never move forward to finding solutions.  The effort has to be WorldWide with everybody locked and loaded !”

“The greatest trick the devil ever pulled was convincing the world that he didn’t exist.”

We were ambushed by Family Court of Australia Brisbane judiciary gross misconduct, acting illegally deliberately knowingly breaching Australian Commonwealth law , Malfeasance, dysfunctional antisocial and Narcissistic, the Australian Constitution proved misbehaviour or incapacity., this judiciary is dangerous and should not be approached.

121 FLA secret courts only serves the politically violent Child Traffickers.


Tony Abbott, PM Australia: Open jury trials in Australian Family Courts

Legal Aid Queensland acting illegally Malfeasance.

ICL acting illegally Nonfeasance Misfeasance.

This is a dysfunctional criminally corrupt secret industry kept a corrupt secret with 121 FLA, LAQ ICL Child Lawyer and consultant’s purger to obstruct pervert and defeat justice.

CRIMES ACT 1914 – SECT 35 Giving false testimony

CRIMES ACT 1914 – SECT 36 Fabricating evidence

What should be straight forward 50/50 has been dragged through Family Court Australia from August 2010 at huge expense, by Legal Aid Queensland family law team of narcisstic antisocial politically violent duplicitic pseudo feminists, with purgery and deceit.

The kicker is the more conflict the more profit corrupt ICL child lawyers and the industry makes, the industry makes every effort to lie, purger and cheat to fuel conflict.

What is happening is a cycle of evil, antisocial behaviour being administered, starting from sociopathic parenting.

” non accidental verbal or symbolic acts by a child’s parent or caregiver that result, or have reasonable potential to result, in significant psychological harm to the child.” DSM5

“What’s done to children, they will do to society” – Karl Menninger, MD. (1893-1990) American psychiatrist.

Official Crimes against Australian Children, child trafficking.

Child Trafficking in Australia

Family Court Australia Murder incorporated, kiddie for cash law firms, we have your kiddies, what are you going to do about it?

Fascism, Feminism, Socialism, Racism,  etc are absolute Dysfunctional Sociopathic and Sadistic, why are you pushing sociopathy on Australians?

They are sociopathic gender war mongers creating conflict, are sociopathic collectives, which is a degenerate parasitic subspecies, the lowest form of humanity, that invoke all conflict and wars.

We need you to step up, stand up for each other, fight the good fight, your kids need to know you never gave up on them.

50/50 shared care is the civilised standard.

Contact with Non-Custodial Fathers and Children’s Wellbeing

Although it is usually assumed that mothers are children’s primary care givers, fathers also play an important role in children’s development. Besides providing economic resources, fathers are also sources of emotional support, practical assistance, information, guidance, and supervision.
A large body of research shows that the support and involvement of both parents is associated with a number of positive child outcomes, including academic achievement, good behaviour, psychological adjustment, a positive self- concept, and social competence.

Furthermore, when both parents exercise control and supervision appropriate to children’s developmental level, children experience a similar range of benefits (Rollins and Thomas 1979; Maccoby and Martin 1983).

My young son is missing since November 2012 because I complained to CAFS Queensland children’s detention centre Eagleby about unexplained burses.

I have found the Australian family courts deliberately and intentionally extremely treacherous and corrupt trafficking in children, extinguishing hard won democratic rights and freedoms, fair and just hearings, they are exploiting and abusing my young son as well as many Australian children.

Tyranny is narcissism (DSM-5), and that is the problem we are having globally
with all governments, Tyranny / narcissism built on hierarchal pyramid

True democracy forms a sphere where all members have an equal voice and vote,
the leaders are at the centre but have no more power than the newest member,
only true democracy can be just and deliver justice for all.

Do we trust ALP, do we trust the LNP, and can we trust any party?

NO, ever wonder why there are so many protests and wars?

Purely because of lacking democracy.

How about this, you give us our democracy, our democracy will give us our justice.

There is no real justice without true democracy, the only true democracy is direct democracy.

Party politics and policy is not proper true democracy.
The Australian Democrats
The party is based on the principles of honesty, tolerance, compassion and direct democracy through postal ballots of all members, so that “there should be no hierarchical structure …

by which a carefully engineered elite could make decisions for the members.”[8]:p187 From the outset, members’ participation was fiercely protected in national and
divisional constitutions prescribing internal elections, regular meeting protocols, annual conferences—and monthly journals for open discussion and balloting. Dispute resolution procedures were established, with final recourse to a party ombudsman and membership ballot.

This is democracy at work, is the future.

Fathers have nowhere to turn to, and no knowledge or defence against this treacherous Narcisstic abuse.

Dear ***** [FUA] , I hope that you don’t mind my writing for some advice. on the 29th  – 07 – 2012 we lost our eldest Son  to suicide … he was trying desperately to gain some access for us to see his 3 youngest Children. We’ve not seen them now for  almost 3 years  . is there somewhere my Husband and I can go to … we are pensioners, we  baby sat those  Children  each day of their lives, until their Mother took them away …… I’ve now lost all hope of anything  being able to help us…. Kindest Regards ***** *****

Please investigate the mass deaths linked to the Australian family courts, some 2 or more deaths per day in Australia alone.

Being in the courts now know to well how nasty and corrupt these people in the industry are. I personally know people who have suicided.

“A free people ought not only to be armed, but disciplined; to which end a uniform and well-digested plan is requisite; and their safety and interest require that they should promote such manufactories as tend to render them independent of others for essential, particularly military, supplies.” George Washington (22 February 173214 December 1799 

I ask the LNP to sack the current Attorney-General Jarrod Bleijie for grand standing at the cost of Australian and Queensland children and families, Malfeasance  and complicity the current Attorney-General Jarrod Bleijie is ignoring Juveniles in QLD prisons: 20 years of shame, the corruption in legal aid Queensland, and mass murder.

In war, truth is the first casualty. Death is better, a milder fate than tyranny. Aeschylus

Lest We Forget


The ANZAC’s fought and died for our children’s rights to grow free from treachery and tyranny, we owe the ANZAC’s everything,.

The ANZAC legacy and democratic rights has been extinguished in one generation by judiciary corruption and greed.

Children are not safe in Australia.

Malfeasance and complicity the current Attorney-General Jarrod Bleijie is ignoring the corruption in legal aid Queensland, mass murder, Attorney-General Jarrod Bleijie given LNP the reputation as the nasty party, there is no rule of law or civil rights in the Australian family court or Queensland.

Under Anthony Reilly Chief executive officer Legal Aids Queensland are extremely   corrupt, spending millions of Queensland dollars on employing politicly violent feminist in their family law team abusing children and families producing false family reports, perjury, tampering with evidence, lie and cheat children.

Quote from a un named ADF soldier “…It was as filthy a Family Law Court fight as had ever existed. I made a promise to my son that before this has finished these people will never do this to another child in this Country ever again. I keep my promises. I don’t care if they are murdered by some-one for their behaviour – its not my problem. All because I was an ex Commando. Problem is, I found out the truth, something they didn’t expect. What this Court is all about is exactly the same as the current proposed Laws to stifle and control the media.”


It is at the point where the Australian public needs and have a duty to take up arms to protect their children and democracy.

Where there is a void of ethic’s or morals it is inhuman, only animal, humanity needs to act, when an animal kills it needs to be destroyed.

What is presented as feminism is in fact a Dysfunctional Antisocial Narcisstic Collective. Criminally motivated exploitation of our children, driven by greed for power and money, the same ilk as ‘Emily’s List’ of bigoted feminist, feminism is socialism / communism in a dress.

The family court judiciary is corrupt with no accountability, they know exactly how to break and defeat the law and justice and they enjoy doing it, destroying lives and killing deliberately and knowingly.

They actively avoid truth, building on understanding and, mediation, adopting political violence.

As Darwin predicts they are a variant species collective with no ethics or morals, as many regimes throughout history as is Bashar al-Assad now proving.

Dysfunctional anti-social Narcisstic individuals need to be detected early and rejected before they can collect in numbers and destroy innocent lives.

Humanity is still young naïve, still have not learnt enough from behavioural tragedy children suffering.

Peaceful resolution is not profitable.

Dysfunctional Narcissism seems the modern term for evil it is very where especially ever in bureaucracy, judiciary and government, it is the real enemy of civilized society, peace and harmony.

It is well hidden in the back ground behind many facades socialism, fascism, feminism and so on… And needs to be openly recognised and discussed.

Psychology as the study of human behaviour that needs to be taught early in school, straight from the DSM-5 along with the constitution and law.

Ultimately psychology has so much to offer civilized society.

Julia Gillard’s narcissism was her downfall, we just seen the narcissism at the head of ALP.

Feminists like socialist and fascism is just another façade for age old enemy, Narcissism. Narcissism is and has always been the real enemy











Stop Narcissistic lawyers trafficking our children, Stop Narcissism in governments, Vote against Narcissism, stop Narcissism in our courts, stop Narcissists waging war .

The hidden war a civil war on our children and families, It is a 16 billion dollar industry run by lawyer for lawyers, child trafficking industry.

The most notable thing about the courts Judiciary themselves is the criminality, treachery and corruption.

Have degenerated into Antisocial Narcisstic Collective, criminally motivated antisocial narcissism defeating justice, excluding honest practitioners, corruption, bias, treachery, lies, purger, deceit, with no accountability, not judicial in the least.

Child exploitation is the new 16 billion dollar per year boom industry, with no regard for the kids, the families or the law..

The most notable aspect of socialist regimes is how antisocial and despotic they are, duplicity.

The Australian family court antisocial judiciaries are killing 2 or more good people every day here in Australia alone.

It is an antisocial psyc war on children and families aimed at defeating justice for power and profit, thousands of Australian families are victimised, trapped every year.

50/50 shared care is the civilised standard.

If for no good reason one parent works against 50/50 it could be said they are being dysfunctional, antisocial and should be assessed for antisocial personality disorder.

What we are seeing is justice being defeated by collectives of dysfunctional antisocial narcisstic judiciaries and bureaucracies simply because there is no accountability. By this function good practitioners are ejected.

Ever wonder how these narcisstic antisocial and psychotic people get jobs and position in judiciaries and bureaucries, ever wonder why the world is in perpetual war?

Owen’s theorem Owen’s syndrome Robert Owen (14 May 1771 – 17 November) was a Welsh social reformer and one of the founders of socialism and the cooperative movement. Owen’s son Robert Dale stayed at New Harmony after its collapse. He had a different assessment of his father’s experiment.

“All cooperative schemes which provide equal remuneration to the skilled and industrious and the ignorant and idle must work their own downfall, for by this unjust plan … they must of necessity eliminate the valuable members … and retain only the improvident, unskilled, and vicious.”

fascism feminism terrorism socialism racism communism (see a pattern?) are all dysfunctional antisocial sociopathic projections … DSM5

It is not hard to see how these antisocial, narcisstic judiciaries and bureaucries collectives form.

Democracy is a form of government in which all eligible citizens have an equal say in the decisions that affect their lives.

Publicity is justly commended as a remedy for social and industrial diseases. Sunlight is said to be the best of disinfectants; electric light the most efficient policeman.

Louis Dembitz Brandeis (1856-11-13 – 1941-10-03) was an important American litigator, Supreme Court Justice, advocate of privacy, and developer of the Brandeis Brief

121 FLA secret courts only serves the Child Traffickers.

The courts will never work, never deliver justice, we have to take it on our selves to deliver justice.


The only real solution is public accountabilityxx

Danny Bennett-Hillier, 2154 Great to know that others are pushing for change!

Lisa Macumber, 3136 Its about time the government stood up and did something to protect our men before more of them end up suiciding and our children are left alone, confused and fatherless

John D Mahoney, 2010

John Findlay, 4115 Why am I perceived to be a lesser parent because of my genitals ? Why do I have to fight in court and spend vast amounts of money for the right to spend time with my children ? Why do I have a DVO against me for a TXT message when I was trying to protect my children from a cult ? Why dont I have any say in my childrens lives ? Why isnt this important to everyone when almost 50% of families are failing ? Why are women so nastie and willing to use their own children as a tool of revenge. Why does everyone know that women are abusing the system except the judges that hand down decishions. The whole system has been corrupted by the lure of money into the pockets of moraly bankrupt lawyers and blinkered judges. We all only want fair ! nothing more, nothing less !

Max, 4217 My ongoing experience, it is a beat-up from the get go and very much still is. My now 2yo son’s primary attachment is with me because I cared for him from birth he cries when he see the mother, she took him to get welfare and free housing. With all the video and affidavits showing this, the court consultant and the family report writer still claim the attachment is with the mother, she enjoys abusing and neglecting him with the full knowledge and support of legal aids and the courts. They even write her affidavits for her (and got her name wrong in a signed and filed affidavit). My lawyer won’t talk to me, past on documents, file my affidavits making sure I don’t get a hearing at all. The reality is it is fully syndicated corruption, exploiting kids, stripping the father of their money. The courts and legal aid run list of their preferred consultants and lawyers, a genuine honest consultant or lawyer wouldn’t make it on their lists, and it is multibillion dollar industry, report writers are making ,000.00 a week, lawyers 20,000.00 a week, nice at the tax payers guaranteed expense.

Zaida Berrios, I am a woman and I support fathers. I am not a citizen of Australia. This is happening in America also.

xxxxxxxx, 3000 Equal Rights for all? More women in the board rooms? More women in the defence forces. More men should be acknowledged as fathers important in their children’s lives and often making a major contribution to their view and understanding of the world.-We can be engineers, electricians, doctors, dentists to rig workers, but some reason it seems that our ability to look after a child is diminished because we are men?

White Ribbon considering legal action against men’s rights group

A US-based men’s rights group has purchased a similar domain name to promote its own cause. The URL directs to a website that looks very similar to, but is run by a group calling itself ‘A Voice for Men’.

It also uses the name ‘White Ribbon’, but claims to be raising awareness about domestic abuse as a non-gendered issue, highlighting men also as victims and the effects on children.

The “copycat” website claimed that violence against women was an exaggerated myth at the cost of men.

The group claimed on its website that the idea of a female victim of domestic violence was manufactured, accusing universities and researches on domestic violence prevention of man hating.

National Executive Engagement Officer for White Ribbon Australia, Fayssal Sari, told SBS the group was using deceitful tactics to mislead people who had genuine concerns for victims of domestic violence.

“End Violence Against Everyone”


AUSTRALIAN DEMOCRACY ONLINE PARTY, DEMOCRACY 2.0 THE UPGRADE Only together we can over run the ALP LNP Cults with our own direct democratic party, to make the changes we want and need for our children and our children’s children.

Change won’t happen unless we make it happen, we have to do it together as one, unless we do we will relive history.

Point is laws are only any good if they protect us and our rights, freedoms and liberties, laws are only good if they are upheld at all times equally.

It is obvious to most that the government and pathetic judiciary, our employees do not up hold the law nor the spirit of the law, because they hold us in contempt and this is why we are here to be a political force to deal with them, because they believe we work for them, and in reality we do, we work and pay them tax an they hold us in contempt..


Dads protest outside court to see their children

TODAY marks 12 months since the last time Adam (not his real name) saw his daughter.

He marked the occasion by staging a protest outside the Family Court in Lismore along with a couple of other dads who have been through lengthy court cases in order to see their children.

“Every adjournment is a sentence for the non-custodial parent,” Adam said.

The court has ordered that Adam be given supervised visit with his daughter every fortnight. He drove to Coffs Harbour for these visits on a number of occasions, but the mother decided it was too stressful for their daughter and just stopped coming.

“I don’t get any photos, artworks, news from what’s happening at school – nothing. She (the mother) ignores everything (the court ordered) and there is no penalty.”

Many of the delays in his case are because the judge is based in Townsville and only occasionally put on the Brisbane circuit, which includes the Lismore Family Court.

Adam’s story resonated with several passers-by who offered support while The Northern Star was visiting.

“We went through it and everyone came out bitter and twisted. It’s a f**ked system,” one woman offered.

“So many people, particularly men, have told me not to bother, not to feed the system and the lawyers, to wait until your kid grows up and that they will come back to you then,” Adam said. “But I don’t want to do that.”

One father said in order to be eligible for Legal Aid, he had to give up his job.

Adam has spent so much time studying the legal proceedings of his case, he is now studying law at SCU and one day hopes to be able to help other dads in Family Court matters.

If two nations are at war,

but only one nation knows it, that one nation will win.

Shared Parenting Laws Mis-Represented by ex-Judge Richard Chisholm


Retired Family Court judge Richard Chisholm, now an ­Australian National University adjunct professor, has written a blueprint for overhauling Australia’s Family Law Act, and wants the laws to be changed, apparently to remove the prospect of Shared Parenting as a potential outcome in Family Law Court proceedings.

This is nothing new for Chisholm, who has a penchant for writing reports and reviews that have consistent themes, notably that Shared Parenting laws must be removed from Australia’s Family Law act.

In this new blueprint, Chisholm has lamented that the current laws have lead to confusion in the minds of many parents, who he claims, falsely believe that children are entitled to have a meaningful relationship (including parenting time) with both parents in the event of divorce.

It stands to reason that Chisholm therefore believes that Australia’s Shared Parenting laws don’t in fact promote Shared Parenting, so parents should not expect Shared Parenting outcomes, or alternatively they do expect Shared Parenting but should not.

According to Chisholm, because of this alleged mis-conception, he presumably wants any references to Shared Parenting (and synonyms), as well as terms like “Equal Shared Parental Responsibility”, “Significant and Substantial Parenting Time” and “Equal Parenting Time”, to be removed from the act, along with about another fifth of Part VII of the Family Law Act.

He wants this whole section replaced with a presumption that “it is in a child’s best interests for both parents to continue to have parental responsibility“.

Sounds familiar?

Well if not let me give you a hint, from my reading what he is suggesting is that he wants the Family Law act to go back to a time prior to the 2006 Shared Parenting amendments, where parental responsibility was a meaningless term that in practice amounted to sole parental responsibility, the beholder being the parent who had physical custody.

Chisholm hopes and expectations however are not supported  by the historical facts underlying the basis of his reports.

One claim by Chisholm and others regarding the proposed family law reforms post 2006 has been a mis-representation of the history of these amendments.

We now have a case where the public is being led to believe that Australia’s Shared Parenting laws were never intended to increase Shared Parenting, bizarre as this may seem given the term that these amendments are almost universally known as is Australia’s “Shared Parenting” laws.

Despite Chisholm’s misleading claim, the reality is that the core driving force behind the 2006 Family Law amendments was the principle of Shared Parenting (being defined in its simplest form as equal, or substantial and significant shared living arrangements.) This was underscored and emphasised by the Prime Minister of the time, John Howard in numerous instances.

This was ultimately the primary goal of these 2006 family law amendments, and no amount of revisionism or re-casting can change the historical foundation and motivation behind these laws.

If anyone has any doubts about the intent of the laws, I recommend you go back to the foundation bi-partisan report in 2003, supported by both the Coalition and the ALP, called “Every Picture Tells a Story.”

Although the final legislation did not adopt all the recommendations, the intent of the changes were very clearly articulated in this report, despite the compromise of the 2 -hurdles to Shared Parenting (incorporating Equal Shared Parental Responsibility as the first hurdle), being a necessary compromise to seal bi-artisan support for the report.

The report however in intent and purpose is unequivocal and reads:

“Despite the intentions of the Family Law Reform Act of 1995, shared parenting and shared physical care have not become a reality for the vast majority of separated families.”

In response to this failure in the 1995 Family Law changes, the Committee recommended that the new Shared Parenting amendments (eventually enacted in 2006) should contain the presumption that children should “be given maximum opportunity of spending significant amounts of time with each parent.

The report’s intentions were clear, that there be a Presumption of Equal Shared Parental Responsibility (the first hurdle), that would be struck down if certain events occurred, such as family violence, huge distances between households, or other relevant issues preventing Shared Parenting.

If such events did not occur, then the Courts were compelled to order Shared Parenting, either Equal Parenting Time, or Substantial and Significant Parenting time, if in the child’s best interest, and if not ordered, the Judge had to explain why not.

To illustrate this mis-representation by Chisholm more recently, in 2011 these Shared Parenting laws were amended by the then Gillard government to make it more difficult for some parents to get Shared Parenting arrangements with their children if there were allegations of family violence (despite it already being part of the 2006 amendments).

In response to these proposed changes, George Christensen, in opposition at the time, stated on record that:

“What is inside this Trojan horse, the malicious code that will infect society, is an attempt to undermine equal access for both parents. This change would invite the court to ignore the requirement to consider the second pillar—the benefit to the child of having a meaningful relationship with both parents.”

A recent article reported in the Australian on Chisholm’s proposed family law act reform blueprint, further distorts the original intent of the 2006 Shared Parenting Family Law amendments, either deliberately, mistakenly or by complicity by the journalist involved, Nicola Berkovic.

The article suggests that Australian family law act could be simplified, by removing some convoluted section in the act.

The journalist, Nicola Berkovic, then used comments by other notable family law spokes-people supporting the above premise, to imply that this view also includes their agreement that Australia’s Shared Parenting laws should also be ditched.

In fact, as is the case with the pre-eminent expert in family law and the man sometimes referred to as the architect of the 2006 Shared Parenting laws, Professor Patrick Parkinson, this is not his position at all.

In a similar tactic, Anti-Shared Parenting advocates like Chisholm have also used the guise that Shared Parenting laws expose children of separated families to increased risks of child neglect, child abuse or child murder, and yet the subsequent reviews of the 2006 Shared Parenting laws plus numerous other studies and research found that nothing could be further from the truth.

More on this other mis-representation often peddled by the usual suspects, in another article.

Feminism must be banished to save the family



How feminists tried to destroy the family | Daily Mail Online

How feminists tried to destroy the family

Last updated at 23:19 22 January 2007

Erin Pizzey, founder of the battered wives’ refuge, on how militant feminists – with the collusion of Labour’s leading women – hijacked her cause and used it to try to demonise all men.

During 1970, I was a young housewife with a husband, two children, two dogs and a cat. We lived in Hammersmith, West London, and I didn’t see much of my husband because he worked for TV’s Nationwide. I was lonely and isolated, and longed for something other than the usual cooking, cleaning and housework to enter my life.

By the early Seventies, a new movement for women – demanding equality and rights – began to make headlines in the daily newspapers. Among the jargon, I read the words “solidarity” and “support”. I passionately believed that women would no longer find themselves isolated from each other, and in the future could unite to change our society for the better.

Within a few days I had the address of a local group in Chiswick, and I was on my way to join the Women’s Liberation Movement. I was asked to pay £3 and ten shillings as a joining fee, told to call other women “sisters” and that our meetings were to be called “collectives”.

My fascination with this new movement lasted only a few months. At the huge “collectives”, I heard shrill women preaching hatred of the family. They said the family was not a safe place for women and children. I was horrified at their virulence and violent tendencies. I stood on the same platforms trying to reason with the leading lights of this new organisation.

I ended up being thrown out by the movement. My crime was to warn some of the women working in the Women’s Liberation Movement office off Shaftesbury Avenue that if it persisted in cooperating with a plan to bomb Biba, a fashionable clothes shop in Kensington, I would call the police.

Biba was bombed because the women’s movement thought it was a capitalist enterprise devoted to sexualising women’s bodies.

I decided that I was wasting my time trying to influence what, to my mind, was a Marxist/ feminist movement touting for money from gullible women like myself.

By that time, I’d met a small group of women in my area who agreed with me. We persuaded Hounslow council to give us a tiny house in Belmont Terrace in Chiswick. We had two rooms upstairs, two rooms downstairs, a kitchen and an outside lavatory. We installed a telephone and typewriter, and we were in business.

Every day after dropping my children at school, I went to our little house, which we called the Women’s Aid. Soon women from all over Chiswick were coming to ask for help. At last we had somewhere women could meet each other and bring their children. My long, lonely days were over.

But then something happened that made me understand that our role was going to be more than just a forum where women could exchange ideas. One day, a lady came in to see us. She took off her jersey, and we saw that she was bruised and swollen across her breasts and back. Her husband had taken a chair leg to her. She looked at me and said: “No one will help me.”

For a moment I was somersaulted back in time. I was six years old, standing in front of a teacher at school. My legs were striped and bleeding from a whipping I had received from an ironing cord. “My mother did this to me last night,” I said. “No wonder,” replied the teacher. “‘You’re a dreadful child.”

No one would help me then and nobody would ever imagine that my beautiful, rich mother – who was married to a diplomat – could be a violent abuser.

Until that moment 35 years later, I had buried my past and assumed that because we had social workers, probation officers, doctors, hospitals and solicitors, victims of violence had enough help.

I quickly discovered, as battered women with their children poured into the house, that whatever was going on behind other people’s front doors was seen as nobody else’s business.

If someone was beaten up on the street, it was a criminal offence; the same beating behind a closed door was called “a domestic”‘ and the police had no rights or power to interfere.

The shocking fact for me was that there had been a deafening silence on the subject of domestic violence.

All the social agencies knew about domestic violence, but nobody talked about it. I searched for literature to help me understand this epidemic, but there was nothing to read except a few articles on child abuse in medical journals.

So in 1974 I decided to write Scream Quietly Or The Neighbours Will Hear, the first book in the world on domestic violence. I revealed that women and children were being abused in their own homes and they couldn’t escape because the law wouldn’t protect them.

If a husband claimed he would have his wife back, she couldn’t claim any money from the Department of Health and Social Security, and social services could only offer to take the children into care.

Meanwhile, our little house was packed with women fleeing their violent partners – sometimes as many as 56 mothers and children in four rooms. All had terrible stories, but I recognised almost immediately that not all the women were innocent. Some were as violent as the men, and violent towards their children.

The social workers involved with these women told me I was wasting my time because the women would only return to their partners.

I was determined to try to break the chain of violence. But as the local newspaper picked up the story of our house, I grew worried about a very different threat.

I knew that the radical feminist movement was running out of national support because more sensible women had shunned their anti-male, anti-family agenda. Not only were they looking for a cause, they also wanted money.

In 1974, the women living in my refuge organised a meeting in our local church hall to encourage other groups to open refuges across the country.

We were astonished and frightened that many of the radical lesbian and feminist activists that I had seen in the collectives attended. They began to vote themselves into a national movement across the country.

After a stormy argument, I left the hall with my abused mothers – and what I had most feared happened.

In a matter of months, the feminist movement hijacked the domestic violence movement, not just in Britain, but internationally.

Our grant was given to them and they had a legitimate reason to hate and blame all men. They came out with sweeping statements which were as biased as they were ignorant. “All women are innocent victims of men’s violence,” they declared.

They opened most of the refuges in the country and banned men from working in them or sitting on their governing committees.

Women with alcohol or drug problems were refused admittance, as were boys over 12 years old. Refuges that let men work there were refused affiliation.

Our group in Chiswick worked with as many refuges as we could. Good, caring women still work in refuges across the country, but many women working in the feminist refuges, about 350, admit they are failing women who most need them.

With the first donation we received in 1972, we employed a male playgroup leader because we felt our children needed the experience of good, gentle men. We devised a treatment programme for women who recognised that they, too, were violent and dysfunctional. And we concentrated on children hurt by violence and sexual abuse.

Yet the feminist refuges continued to create training programmes that described only male violence against women. Slowly, the police and other organisations were brainwashed into ignoring the research that was proving men could also be victims.

Despite attacks in the Press from feminist journalists and threatening anonymous telephone calls, I continued to argue that violence was a learned pattern of behaviour from early childhood.

When, in the mid-Eighties, I published Prone To Violence, about my work with violence-prone women and their children, I was picketed by hundreds of women from feminist refuges, holding placards which read: “All men are bastards” and “All men are rapists”.

Because of violent threats, I had to have a police escort around the country.

It was bad enough that this relatively small group of women was influencing social workers and police. But I became aware of a far more insidious development in the form of public policy-making by powerful women, which was creating a poisonous attitude towards men.

In 1990, Harriet Harman (who became a Cabinet minister), Anna Coote (who became an adviser to Labour’s Minister for Women) and Patricia Hewitt (yes, she’s in the Labour Cabinet, too!) expressed their beliefs in a social policy paper called The Family Way.

It said: “It cannot be assumed that men are bound to be an asset to family life, or that the presence of fathers in families is necessarily a means to social harmony and cohesion.”

It was a staggering attack on men and their role in modern life.

Hewitt, in a book by Geoff Dench called Transforming Men published in 1995, said: “But if we want fathers to play a full role in their children’s lives, then we need to bring men into the playgroups and nurseries and the schools. And here, of course, we hit the immediate difficulty of whether we can trust men with children.”

In 1998, however, the Home Office published a historic study which stipulated that men as well as women could be victims of domestic violence.

With that report in my hand, I tried to reason with Joan Ruddock, who was then Minister for Women. The figures for battered men were “minuscule” she insisted and she continued to refer to men only as “perpetrators”.

For nearly four decades, these pernicious attitudes towards family life, fathers and boys have permeated the thinking of our society to such an extent that male teachers and carers are now afraid to touch or cuddle children.

Men can be accused of violence towards their partners and sexual abuse without evidence. Courts discriminate against fathers and refuse to allow them access to their children on the whims of vicious partners.

Of course, there are dangerous men who manipulate the court systems and social services to persecute their partners and children. But by blaming all men, we have diluted the focus on this minority of men and pushed aside the many men who would be willing to work with women towards solutions.

I believe that the feminist movement envisaged a new Utopia that depended upon destroying family life. In the new century, so their credo ran, the family unit will consist of only women and their children. Fathers are dispensable. And all that was yoked – unforgivably – to the debate about domestic violence.

To my mind, it has never been a gender issue – those exposed to violence in early childhood often grow up to repeat what they have learned, regardless of whether they are girls or boys.

I look back with sadness to my young self and my vision that there could be places where people – men, women and children who have suffered physical and sexual abuse – could find help, and if they were violent could be given a second chance to learn to live peacefully.

I believe that vision was hijacked by vengeful women who have ghetto-ised the refuge movement and used it to persecute men. Surely the time has come to challenge this evil ideology and insist that men take their rightful place in the refuge movement.

We need an inclusive movement that offers support to everyone that needs it. As for me – I will always continue to work with anyone who needs my help or can help others – and yes, that includes men.

Labor promises specialist domestic violence courts if elected

October 12, 2014

Kirsty Needham State Political Editor


A specialist court for domestic violence and sexual assault cases would be established by a NSW Labor government, deputy opposition leader Linda Burney will announce on Sunday.

The election commitment aims to reduce the trauma experienced by victims going to court by employing specialist judges and lawyers, designing courtrooms to ensure safety and privacy, and allowing victims to give evidence remotely.

Labor has committed to trials in metropolitan Sydney, Wollongong and the Hunter.

“We have a massive under-reporting rate in sexual assault, and half the conviction rate of any other area of criminality,” Karen Willis, executive officer of Rape and Domestic Violence Services Australia, said.


Ms Willis undertook a Churchill Fellowship to study the operation of specialist domestic violence courts in Canada, South Africa, Britain and the United States. She believes this approach could increase the reporting of assaults and conviction rates in Australia.

Delays in reporting a sexual assault in NSW are often interpreted by courts as “making up a story”.

“We know with trauma, that victims go numb and shut down,” she said.

Ms Willis says  70 per cent of sexual assaults are committed by a friend, family member or colleague, and a third in a social setting, such as a date. Because of this, grooming tactics used by offenders prior to an attack should also be examined in court.

“There needs to be a rethink of how these crimes are prosecuted, what evidence is provided and what the jury considers. The best way to do this is a specialist court,” Ms Willis said.

Ms Burney said domestic violence was a national crisis and the rate of these assaults was rising in NSW, reaching 27,000 last year – or 74 a day.

“Labor will make reducing domestic violence a top priority in government, and this includes protecting and supporting victims and bringing perpetrators to justice as quickly as possible and in a way which minimises trauma to the victim,” she said.

Labor’s women’s spokeswoman Sophie Cotsis said every woman and child had the right to be safe in their own home: “Many other jurisdictions around the world have different specialist domestic violence and sexual assault courts operating at the moment – we need to see this implemented in NSW.”

In South Africa, magistrates undergo specialist training to sit on sexual assault courts where victims can give evidence by CCTV, the court is closed for cross examination and there are separate waiting rooms and entries for the accused and the victim.

There are 200 specialist courts in the US, 100 in Britain and 50 in Canada. Labor wants an expert committee to determine the best model for a domestic violence and sexual assault court in NSW.

Specialist courts for drug-related crime have been used in NSW for 15 years, with research showing people sentenced through these courts less likely to reoffend.

The Hunter recorded 2700 cases of domestic violence and 1100 sexual or indecent assaults in the past year.

The Illawarra recorded 1043 domestic violence cases and 450 sexual or indecent assaults.

Ms Willis said that, instead of prison sentences, a “more clever” approach to preventing repeat offences would be court-mandated behaviour change programs.
