Defeat the New York Bills, Which Seek to Outlaw Free Speech on the Internet, target political speech on pretext of... “protecting children”

Several members of the NY State Assembly and Senate have launched a dangerous assault on the First Amendment of the U.S. Constitution. They are proposing to effectively end the Free Speech on the pretext of stopping what they vaguely refer to as "cyber bullying" and “baseless political attacks”. Like the sponsors of this legislation, I deplore cyber-bullying of all kinds, but I also condemn the legislators' presumably well-intentioned proposals, which in reality sneak-in fascist censorship.

They are pushing the so-called Internet Protection Act and Cyberbullying prevention acts.

Their names are State Senator O’Mara (R-District 53), Assemblymen Dean Murray (R,C-East Patchogue), Jim Conte (R-10th district), Phil Palmesano (R-C, Corning) and many more. The bills are A.8688 / S.6779 (in the Assembly and Senate, and their texts are identical.) The bills will make it a crime to post “mean-spirited and baseless political attacks.”  The question is, who will decide what “mean-spirited” and “baseless” mean?  

If passed, the legislation will have a massive chilling effect on political speech. As they often do, legislators are seeking to bamboozle the people of New York under the guise of … protecting children. While pretending to be against “cyber bullying,” they are clearly targeting the political speech, hoping that voters do not read beyond the first lines of the bill's text.  The legislation makes it illegal to post anonymously on the Internet.  

Said Assemblyman Jim Conte, 10th District:

"Finally, the legislation will help cut down on the types of mean-spirited and baseless political attacks that add nothing to the real debate and merely seek to falsely tarnish the opponent’s reputation by using the anonymity of the Web. By removing these posts, this bill will help to ensure that there is more accurate information available to voters on their prospective candidates, giving them a better assessment of the candidates they have to choose from."
State Republican Senator Tom O’Mara introduced the legislation on May 3, 2012.

The Internet Protection Act” concerns messages posted on message boards, blogs, social networks, and “any other discussion site where people can hold conversations in the form of posted messages.” It requires websites to post email addresses for “removal requests, clearly visible in any sections where comments are posted.” Those who demand the removal of messages, which they for some reason dislike, would have their anonymity protected.  – How convenient! Name a single politician who likes criticism!

There is sufficient legal precedent in the current law for unmasking the identity of libelous anonymous commentators by obtaining a court order, which would result in pinpointing who they are.  So, aside from being a great pretense, this bill is clearly unconstitutional (see, e.g. Talley v. California) and it must be nipped in the bud.

It is worth remembering that the Federalist Papers were published anonymously. Said David Kravets, of Wired Magazine: 
“Had the internet been around in the late 1700s, …  the anonymously written Federalist Papers would have to be taken down unless Alexander Hamilton, James Madison and John Jay revealed themselves.”  
Assemblyman Jim Conte took off the mask of "protecting children" when he stated on his website (maintained on the taxpayer’s dime): 
“With more and more people relying on social media and the Internet to communicate and gather information, it is imperative that the legislature put into place some type of safeguard to prevent people from using the Internet’s cloak of anonymity to bully our children and make false accusations against local businesses and elected officials,” 
Thank you, Assemblyman. So much for your pretense of “protecting children” to mask the reactionary politics. 

The bill in New York has serious ramifications for the rest of the web, as many web servers are located in New York, and the assault on free speech in New York may become a boilerplate for other states’ and the federal law. 

Making a lame attempt to hide behind “children”, the legislation specifically targets political speech, especially free speech directed at “elected officials,” many of them being contemptuous of criticism and clawing towards unlimited power. The founding fathers made it the cornerstone of the US Constitution that “Congress shall make no law abridging the Freedom of Speech, or of the Press…” 

The attacks on the constitution come in many forms, from the extreme left and extreme right of the political spectrum. This specific "piece of legislation" smacks of the fascism on the right. Yet, it is based on the lefty Cyberbullying Report (see below), revealing a collusion between the two camps.

Call, fax or contact personally the New York State Assemblymen and Senators, and tell them to oppose this fascist legislation.

Assemblyman Jim Conte quoted:

Post Scriptum: Democrats not to be outdone
It is instructional to see how the dirty political deal-making is accomplished in New York State, and how the fascist interests on the left converge with those on the right: As a justification for trampling upon the people’s Fist Amendment right, the Republican Assemblymen sponsoring the Internet Protection Act relied on the recently issued “Cyberbullying: A Report on Bullying in a Digital Age” [Fn-1], published by the Independent Democratic Conference, a group of four New York state senators — NY State Senators Jeffrey D. Klein (D-Bronx/Westchester), Senator Diane Savino (D-North Shore/Brooklyn ), Senator David Valesky (D-Oneida), and Senator David Carlucci (D-Rockland/Orange) published their Cyber-bullying report, followed by Cyberbullying legislation, sponsored by Sen. Klein. 

There is a “theoretical explanation” of a “more refined First Amendment” embedded in the report, which demonstrates the Democratic Senators' strong disdain for the First Amendment: 
“Proponents of a more refined First Amendment argue that this freedom should be treated not as a right but as a privilege — a special entitlement granted by the state on a conditional basis that can be revoked if it is ever abused or maltreated.    [emphasis added]
Sorry to say Senators, it ain't no goddam "special entitlement", which some goddam victimology lawyer may take away! -- It is a fundamental right, guaranteed by the U.S. Constitution. By the way, you Senators, were sworn to uphold the Constitution, when you took office.  You may have the gall to redefine the U.S. Constitution, but do not flatter yourselves -- you do not have the brain to fool the People. Your proposal spells t-r-e-a-s-o-n. Continue in this vein, and We the People, shall show you the door, pronto! 

The Dog and Pony Show. How do you make a sneaky fascist legislation
palatable to the ill-informed American People? -- Make it "sexy": parade
Ms. New York in front of them. She can't be wrong now, can she?
Senators Klein, Carlucci (in the background), Savino and Valesky.
In Nazi Germany publishing was "a special entitlement granted by the State" (Ministry of Propaganda, headed by Joseph Goebbels.) Now they want a similar routine in New York. 

In a press-conference, the four Senators called their report "definitive," no less. Suffice it to say that their questionnaire was socially-engineered to elicit desired answers...  I should mention that their "conclusions" are diametrically different from the result of research project completed by Danah Boyd,  a Senior Researcher at Microsoft Research, a Research Assistant Professor in Media, Culture, and Communication at New York University, a Visting Researcher at Harvard Law School, and Adjunct Associate Professor at the University of New South Wales, her PhD from the School of Information at UC-Berkeley.

To his credit, Governor Cuomo, thus far refused to sign their unconstitutional legislature. But the undaunted Democrats keep pushing it through this last week of the legislative session, June 18 through 22, 2012.

Currently, the pending bills that would make cyberbullying a crime in New York have been sponsored by Senators Klein (S.6132) and Ranzenhofer (S.6614A).Not only do they try to sneak-in fascism, they attempt to make it bullet-proof: If adopted, you cannot shoot down the whole law on its unconstitutionality, you will have to deal with its sections, piecemeal:


Senator Klein's S.6132 creates a new "crime" -- "an aggravated harassment in the second degree offense for electronic communication transmitted with the intent to harass,
annoy, threaten or alarm another person." Who will decide or interpret the "intent?" -- lawyers. The broad statutory definition (and resorting to criminalization, rather than other remedies) may create publicity for legislators, but such deliberately vague legal definitions that encompass speech and expressive activities are constitutionally overbroad under the First Amendment.

To this we say: Teach our children well. Do not drag them to court on criminal charges, if they say anything stupid or "offensive" to someone's taste. Kids say the darndest things. Senators' Klein [D](S.6132) and Ranzenhofer [R] (S.6614A)  Cyberbullying laws deliberately create a bonanza for lawyers, by lawyers. Their bills create misery for kids and their parents by criminalizing kids' behavior at whim,  all under the false excuse of "protecting" children. Senator Jeffrey Klein is a partner in the law firm of Klein Calderoni & Santucci, LLP, Sen. Ranzenhofer is also a lawyer. Yet, Sen. Klein is telling you he is Mother Theresa! Senator Diane Savino -- that she is the Queen of England.  And I am telling you that if you are silent now, you are buying into their hogwash, which is likely to cost you personally a bundle, and may criminalize and stigmatize your kids for life!  The lawyers, whose cash flows the bill ensures, are already laughing all the way to the bank!

Any of these creepy attempts at abridging the cornerstone of the U.S. Constitution won't last that "New York minute" in federal court, before they are laughed right out of the courtroom, but we must prevent the crooks from passing such state laws in the first place -- federal litigation will cost the taxpayers a pretty penny, and a long time (while lawyers are still laughing at our expense.)

Bloomberg Law on the bill proposed by Sen. Klein (D): It violates the First Amendment

The four Democratic State Senators are telling us that it is somehow the school children, who want and "support" their bill, not the trial lawyers -- the only real beneficiaries of this rape of the First Amendment. They are telling us that it is the "bright young minds" who are writing the new laws for our country: allegedly 70% of the students who answered the Senators' cleverly constructed, socially-engineered questionnaire are for this moronic Cyberbullying Act. That's a "majority," you see. Why not write a law for which a majority of mental patients vote?

When asked who our Vice-President is, these American kids say it is Osama Bin Liden or "that bold guy", Bill Clinton, and that our War of Independence was the Korean War (see the video below, gone viral with millions of hits.) How much dumber can they get? But if you tell them that, some of them might get "deeply hurt" and you will be criminally liable, if our fearless Democratic leaders get their way. 

Whatever happened to our Constitutional Republic, may I ask? Or is it now that the majority by poorly educated school kids will rule our country? the Senators asked kids. They did not ask me or you, their parents.

DSK Sues for False Allegations. – It's About Time Somebody Did!

                                                                                  By Eric Ross, Ph.D.
   Your support helps us to continue speaking the truth

The international financier Dominique Strauss-Kahn, known as DSK, seeks damages for his arrest, which included jail time at New York's Rikers Island Prison and house arrest, for losing his job as managing director of the International Monetary Fund (IMF) and for harm to his reputation causing him to drop out of the race for Presidency of France. His countersuit seeks at least $1 million in damages plus an undetermined amount of punitive damages. [Fn-1]  

Gloria Allred, Esq., the crusading feminist, always paraded
on TV in high profile cases. “We all know this is what Allred
is good at, she is good at trying cases in the media,”
said attorney Anahita Sedaghatfar, a sexual-harassment
litigation specialist, about Allread.
“You have to understand something,” DSK said sometime ago about his libertine pursuits. “Libertinism consists of having free and consensual sexual relations.” Therein lies a huge cultural difference and his downfall: in the U.S. women can act like sexual predators a la Kim Cattrall's character Samantha Jones in Sex in the City, who screws everything that moves within 50 ft of her. For the French man, the head of the IMF and aspiring President, the "libertine" sex was the beginning of his end.  

Diallo, his accuser, a single mother who immigrated from Guinea, has not worked since the incident a year ago, claiming now “a shoulder injury,” which she allegedly sustained during the encounter with Strauss-Kahn, said one of her lawyers, Douglas Wigdor.[Fn-1]  Needless to say, as the US laws require, Diallo was under the police protection as a "rape victim,"and the general public did not even know her name until the day she gave a well-rehearsed performance at her press conference.

The case is a sad commentary on the misandric legal culture in the English-speaking world, where a woman, who in her allegations stated that she had performed fellatio on him, accused DSK of a “rape”. With prima facie evidence of absence of any disagreement between the two, and glaring inconsistencies in Diallo's allegations, how did fellatio qualify as “rape” in the first place? After all, the former US President Bill Clinton did not even consider fellatio he was regularly getting from an underage White House intern, “sex!” 

A year ago, on May 14, 2011, Dominique Strauss-Kahn was arrested and charged with the sexual assault and attempted rape of 32-year-old Nafissatou Diallo, a housekeeper at the Sofitel New York Hotel in Manhattan. NYPD detectives took him off his Paris-bound flight at New York City's John F. Kennedy International Airport just minutes before the takeoff. The U.S. State Department informed Strauss Kahn that his diplomatic immunity did not apply to this case.

Nafissatou Diallo at a press conference. The prosecutors had
to admit that DSK's accuser,  Nafissatou Diallo told them
too many lies. Her spokesman said, "She’s a good Muslim.
She is really pretty, ... but in our culture, we do not
accept this kind of behavior. Seriously, Dominique
Strauss-Kahn attacked the wrong person. It’s a scandal!"
He was arrested on the spot, handcuffed, paraded in front of the assembled TV cameras, and was later charged on several counts of sexual assault and unlawful imprisonment. A chorus of TV talking heads was shaming him, feminist legal commentators having a Schadenfreude fest, demanding he be prosecuted to the fullest extent of the law.  Applying a “reasonable woman standard,” the man deserved a conviction of rape and sexual assault on the account of his marital infidelity in the instant case, as well as having an alleged “history” of it. 

Strauss-Kahn was accused of a litany of felony charges — two of criminal sexual acts of forcing the housekeeper to perform oral sex on him, one of attempted rape and one of sexual abuse — plus three misdemeanor offences, including unlawful imprisonment. 

The costs of legal defense against such allegations are enormous. Just two weeks after his arrest, he UK Telegraph put the total cost of paying for his legal defense by then at $3 million, plus the $1 million cash bail backed by a $5 million bond. [Fn-2]

The accuser, Nafissatou Diallo, was very believable and extremely emotional, describing terrible abuse she suffered at the hands of DSK, shedding tears, and making the special crimes’ unit female detectives enraged with DSK, yet… every time giving new and mutually contradictory details of her “terrible ordeal” at the hands of the alleged abuser. 

Twenty-eight hours after the alleged sexual assault, she talked to her boyfriend in an immigration jail in Arizona, saying "Don't worry, this guy has a lot of money. I know what I'm doing, " The New York Times quoted a government official saying.

Crystal Mangum, the North Carolina woman who falsely
accused the Duke lacrosse team of rape, was later
charged with arson and attempted murder for setting
her boyfriend's clothes on fire and threatening to stab him.
Acquitted of the charge of attempted murder, she did as she
said she would -- stabbed him to death a few months later.
Apparently, so did the accusers in other similar cases:  the Kobe Bryant’s accuser, whose knickers bore traces of fresh semen of other men, or the accuser of the Duke University Lacrosse Team. Interestingly, the Duke university accuser was arrested in 2010 on charges of attempted murder, first-degree arson, assault and battery, identity theft, communicating threats, damage to property, resisting an officer and misdemeanor child abuse, and in late 2011 found competent to stand charges to the stabbing murder of her boyfriend. [Fn-3.a-b]  In the US, no such evidence is relevant, when the woman says she was “raped.” Throughout these trials, a certain undeniable pattern emerged, with money, and false allegations as means of getting it, being key.

“Nothing changes one very important fact, namely, that Dominique Strauss-Kahn violently sexually assaulted the victim inside of that hotel room at the Sofitel,” said her lawyer even despite irreconcilable contradictions in her accusations. “Violently?”,  “sexually assaulted?” – Really? Is it a “fact?” 

“You have to understand something,” DSK
said sometime ago about his libertine pursuits.
 “Libertinism consists of having free and
consensual sexual relations.” Therein
lies his huge cultural misunderstanding and
his downfall: in the U.S. women can act like
sexual predators, like Kim Cattrall's character
Samantha Jones in Sex in the City, who
screws everything that moves within
50 ft of her. For the French head of IMF
and aspiring President, the "libertine" sex
was the beginning of his end.  
We simply may not, cannot have false allegations of rape in America, because our most esteemed legal scholars, such as Katharine A. MacKinnon, have told our lawmakers "any heterosexual sex is rape of a woman." [*] So, evidence does not count, as long as the woman says it is rape… unless the accused can assemble a legal dream team, that would circumvent the legal hurdles of somehow introducing the evidence. 

It's interesting how well some immigrants to the US, legal and illegal, learn to take advantage of the politically-correct “New Speak” of the Violence Against Women Act, even before entering the country. American “feminist jurisprudence” in general, and VAWA in particular, have made the meaning of such heinous crime as “rape”, anything the woman wishes. If you are a woman, come to America, it is always an open season here on men of means, and there are scores of righteous lawyers, who will show you the way to riches (and attempt to siphon the men’s worth into their own pockets in the process.)

Diallo told investigators a compelling and detailed story of being gang-raped by soldiers in Guinea — a shocking story, which she fabricated in its entirety. She even told a story of genital mutilation, another hokum. She struck all the chords on the feminists’ violin, but she got rather confused about her inconsistent lies. She claimed to have only one phone, while paying hundreds of dollars a month to five phone companies, as well as paying large sums to individuals, known felons, depositing almost $100,000 into her bank savings account over the previous two years. Evidence developed suggesting she routinely provided extra “services” to hotel guests as means to supplement her pay. [Fn-4]

She told her lies with great emotion, precision, and conviction – with tears, with halting speech and trembling voice. She hid her face down in her hands, she spoke of the number and nature of her attackers. She pointed at scars on her body that were supposedly from the attack. She told a heart-breaking story of her 2-year old daughter whom the soldiers pulled out of her arms and threw on the ground, and how the child witnessed the “abuse.” Except all of it was an act and none of it ever happened, as she later had to admit. [Fn-5]

Meanwhile, Dominique Strauss-Kahn, the front-running candidate for President of France, faced 25 years in prison for seven criminal counts, including attempted rape and was in prison or under house arrest. 

Forbes estimated that combined worth of DSK and his wife was at more than $100 million. DSK, the diminutive of statue "rapist" must have been rather adventurous (or off-the-scale Masochistic) to trust (or more appropriately "to thrust" –  remember we are talking an alleged "rape" here? ) his manhood into a full set of razor sharp teeth in the mouth of Ms. Nafissatou Diallo, a rather large woman.  What a sick rapist, indeed!

Given his high post of the head of the IMF and his leadership in the Socialist party of France, and being a leading candidate for the 2012 French Presidency,  it's rather unlikely he'd be even inclined to so "rape" the underprivileged maiden, unless she fully cooperated. Although France invented the Guillotine, it is doubtful that its front-running Presidential candidate would so risk Presidential penis, vitally important to the prestige of the country and his personal wellbeing.

Unfortunately, there are plenty of enterprising potential “victims of rape” scouting the American landscape for deep-pocketed targets, but it is only men with truly large monetary  resources, such as DSK, who can successfully legally defend themselves against these vultures. DSK, the Former Chief of the International Monetary Fund, who successfully defended himself against these ridiculously false allegations, is one such example. Meanwhile, the false "victims," such as in the DSK case, are aided and abetted all the way by the scores of unscrupulous lawyers and prosecutors, in search of c0ld cash and political capital.

Culturally, DSK is not an American man. He refuses to accept that in the culture of "blame the male," libertine attitudes are for women only, and that he will be declared a rapist at any opportunity. He is not resigned to being emasculated and forced into paying a ransom settlement on the threat of continued public humiliation; he is probably infuriated with the shakedown and the continued barrage of false allegations, as Nafissatou Diallo is now perusing the case in the civil court with its low standard of proof. All she needs is to gain sympathy of a judge, by shedding a tear or describing her “injuries.” A consummate actress, who cries convincingly,  she is using the American legal system to get her pot of gold one way or another.

In Ethics Vol. 99, No. 2 (Jan., 1989), pp. 314-346; Published by: The University of Chicago Press
Notes: Some More Lies She Told

LIE: “I cowered in fear after DSK’s attack.” She told a grand jury under oath that after DSK assaulted her, she fled down the hall, where she cowered until she saw him leave for the elevator. She then immediately told her supervisors of the attack, she said.
TRUTH: She eventually confessed to prosecutors that what she really did after the “attack” was clean two hotel suits, including DSK’s Suite No. 2806. Only then did she tell hotel staff what had “happened.”
LIE: “I was gang-raped by Guinean soldiers.” DSK’s accuser swore in asylum paperwork that in retaliation for her family’s political opposition to Guinea’s dictatorship, she had been beaten and raped by a mob of soldiers. Prosecutors say she sobbed and “appeared distraught” as she recounted the ordeal.
TRUTH: “She admitted that the gang rape had never occurred,” prosecutors told defense lawyers in legal documents. “Instead, she stated that she had lied about its occurrence and fabricated the details.”
LIE: “I have two children.” Prosecutors say that for the past two tax years, DSK’s accuser declared she had two children as dependents on her tax returns.
TRUTH: She did so “on her tax returns for the purpose of increasing her tax refund beyond that to which she was entitled,” prosecutors say in court papers. She is actually the mother of only one child, a 15-year-old girl. – Not a biggie, really. Timothy Geithner, the U.S. Treasury Secretary, cheated the IRS of a lot more money, and it was fine.

Celebrating Families. Who is the Evil Empire Now?

By Eric Ross, Ph.D.

When Harry Crouch, NCFM President, asked NCFM members to find examples of celebration of family, men, and parenthood, I replied almost immediately with a rather sarcastic note. It was about what many American fathers know as their sad reality:
“Good luck finding celebration of families, let alone men, in the Good Ole' USA. It is so off-the-scale politically incorrect to praise families, let alone fathers, that I would be surprised if any such celebrations were officially recognized or acknowledged at the town level, let alone county or state. The opposite is true: It is quite all right in the USA to bash the institution of the family, and to malign, humiliate and denigrate fathers in particular.”  
Badass Putin, playing with dolphins. 
In contrast, if we were to turn our attention to Russia, which emerged in 1993 from the defunct Soviet Union, you will notice that general attitudes and morays there towards parenthood and children are quite refreshingly different. In its struggles to embrace again its democratic traditions, forgotten during the 76 years of Soviet Power, Russia has established several holidays, when the entire country celebrates families.  Thus, Russia celebrates July 8 as a National Holiday, the Day of Family, Love, and Faithfulness, a day when people of Russia spend time with their extended family – parents, grandparents, children and grandchildren.

Badass Putin
A family is not just husband and wife, but also Granddad and Grandma and, most importantly, kids,” said President Dmitry Medvedev via his Twitter account, from Kremlin, Russia in July 2010. [Fn-1]

Compare this with Barack Obama speech on Fathers Day in 2008: “… We'll admit that what [sic] too many fathers also are is [sic] missing - missing from too many lives and too many homes. They have abandoned their responsibilities, acting like boys instead of men.”[Fn-2]   – Really? Or with his phony “folksy” quip on 2010 Fathers Day: “Too many of our men brag about doing the stuff they're supposed to do. They say, 'I'm not in jail!' Well, you're not supposed to be in jail!’” [Fn-3]

Just when President Barack Obama got to chastising America’s fathers in 2008, Russia established its Day of Family, Love, and Faithfulness, as a national holiday, which follows  the old Russian religious tradition of St. Peter and St. Fevronia of Murom, the patron saints of family and marriage. The Russian Orthodox Church sanctified this ancient Russian couple into Sainthood in the 16th Century. The two reportedly had their arguments and a share of differences, he – a prince, she – a peasant girl, but when they wed in the 13th century, it was on the condition of being equals in marriage. The legend has it that the couple’s love was so strong that the two died on the same day and were found in the same grave, even despite being buried in separate plots. Even death could not part them. [Fn-5]

As President Medvedev and wife stand together in the Chist the 
Saviour's Cathedral, Prime Minster's Putin wife is absent, 
following rumors of the birth of his illegitimate son with 
Alina Kabaeva.
In establishing this holiday, the Russian government wished to revive traditional moral values, and to emphasize the importance of the family, especially for the upbringing of healthy and happy children. [Fn-5a] At the annual official ceremony in Kremlin on the Day of Family, Love, and Faithfulness, Russia’s then first lady, Svetlana Medvedeva, awarded Love and Fidelity Medals to couples who have stayed married for 25 years or longer.  About 5,000 medals were awarded to Russian citizens and 400 medals – to couples all over the world: Bulgaria, the Czech Republic, France, Poland, Germany and Great Britain. [Fn-6]
Putin, Jr.?  Or not? 

Vladimir Putin declared 2008 the Year of the Family. But his zeal to promote family (and higher birth rates) went perhaps too far when a new holiday called “Family Contact Day”, on September 12, encouraged Russians to stay home and engage in marital intimacy in the hope of producing babies by Russia Day − June 12.

See RT TV’s clip titled “Russia celebrates day of love, family and fidelity” here.

Sure, we can crack jokes about Russia’s Family Contact Day, when the nation is given a day off work to get busy making babies. But think about it: While we crack jokes on comparing medals for the vicissitudes of twenty five (25) years of marriage to those awarded for gallantry in war, the mere existence of such a medal shows at least the intent by the government to promote respect for marriage and family, even if skeptics might criticize it. 

All this and brains, too: Many Russians 
feel they can't blame Vladimir Putin for 
allegedly succumbing to the charms of 
Alina Kabaeva, an ethnic Tatar, born 
May 12, 1983), an Honored All-Russia 
Master of  Sports, retired rhythmic 
gymnast, a State Duma deputy from 
the United Russia party.
Compare awarding medals to Russian families who have stayed together, to the celebration of Fathers Day in the USA -- marked by media frenzy, lecturing “dead-beat dads” (most of them unemployed and destitute in an economy permanently disfigured by structural unemployment, worst in the last 40 years.) While the United States of America  marks the “celebration” of Fathers Day by establishing more “domestic violence” programs [Fn-3], and mass-arrests of “deadbeat dads”[Fn-4], it is good to know that at least the former “evil empire” celebrates what people have always loved and cherished – family and parenthood.

Compare Russia’s celebration of the family with the anguish and pain of millions of fathers in the Anglo-Lingua (Anglosphere) world, where fathers have been forcibly removed from the lives of their children by our most wonderful, “social democratic” governments, which have long ago fallen into the lap of feminist fascism. Compare it to fathers who have not been able to see their children for years due to vengeance by their ex-wives and girlfriends, alienating children against their fathers, with the court’s blessing and help.

But in the former “Evil Empire,” the celebration of The Day of Family, Love, and Faithfulness, is marked with weddings, concerts, church sermons, merrymaking, bouquets of daisies (which symbolize fidelity) and family feasts.

While the rumor persists, following a 2008
article in a Moscow newspaper, Putin
addressed the article and the rumor in a
press conference with Silvio Berlusconi,
saying, "There is not a single word of
truth" in it. Alina's spokeswoman called
the rumor "nonsense." The public
meanwhile, continues to fantasize.
There is yet another celebration of families in Russia. It honors large families. Families with a large number of children (over four or five) are celebrated nationally, with a once-a-year-televised ceremony in Kremlin, where the President or Prime Minister delivers an address at the annual reception for parents and their children, and awards dozens of parents the medal of "Parents' Glory." Speaking at the ceremony last year, then Russian President Dmitry Medvedev said that without a strong family, without children, the country had no future. He heartily congratulated and thanked the mums and dads for raising wonderful children.

Russia’s large families are profiled on Russian television and in newspapers, which includes some coverage of what these families do right, such as teaching their children family values: hard work, high academic achievement, excellence in extra-curricular activities, in studying music and art, dance and sports, in taking care of several generations of family members, especially so toddlers.  In this respect, political correctness in Russia is diametrically different from the “values” and political correctness promulgated throughout the U.S. by our government, its political and educational institutions, hell-bent to divide and conquer.

blame them?

Undoubtedly Russia has its share of political mud-slinging, scandals and economic problems. Obtaining a divorce in Russia is easy and usually out of court, so Russia’s divorce rate of 3.36 per 1000 of population is high, giving Russia a dubious distinction of being the third highest divorce rate country in the world, after the United States (highest at 4.95) and Puerto Rico (second place at 4.47 divorces per 1000 of population.) [Fn-7]
The fact remains that Russia’s government policies at least try to uphold the marriage, family and family fidelity, while the United States family laws promote divorce, fighting for access to children and using children as pawns to get more money from the aggrieved non-custodial parent.

American feminist journalists continue to opine that Russia is a "backwater Patriarchal" country, "hypocritical" in celebrating families and children vis-à-vis its high divorce rate (even though the divorce rate in the U.S. is much higher, 150% of the divorce rate in Russia.) Yet, unlike the bureaucratic governmental organization in the U.S., the government of Russia shows genuine concern in its desire to strengthen families. In any respect, the dominant cultural traditions in Russia, as well as its governmental policies, have markedly greater respect for families, parenthood, and childhood than the contemporary American culture, dominated by the cacophonous “discourse” by the male-bashing, gender-feminist "vanguard." A great deal of the American “cultural hegemony” comes from the elite, of whom many would more appropriately belong in an insane asylum, while others are shrewd vultures, gorging themselves off the carcasses of the dying Western Democracies, which they busily “deconstruct.”

Other Notes:

a) If you wish to watch some televised coverage of Russia’s celebrated large families (fluency in Russian required), as an American observer, you will notice a stark contrast to the American cultural attitudes: Russian fathers are praised as the heads of their families, decision-makers and educators of their children. They are praised for passing on the family traditions to the younger generations, unlike American fathers, who are viewed as mere breadwinners (or turned into mere financial slaves, post-divorce.) Here are some examples, of which you could find much more:

Talk about anything else. Student loans. Birth control. Hooded sweatshirts. Heck, even talk about eating dogs.

By Dr. Milton R. Wolf, a Washington Times columnist.
(Dr. Milton Wolf is President B. Obama's cousin, and an articulate critic of Obama's policies.)

So what’s a president to do when his stimulus has failed and his health care takeover is even worse? Avoid them at all costs. Talk about anything else. Student loans. Birth control. Hooded sweatshirts. Heck, even talk about eating dogs. Anything besides the two issues that define his presidency and threaten our republic. 

It’s Obamanomics and Obamacare, the intertwined strands of evil DNA, stupid.

Mothers Who Molest Their Children

By Eric Ross, Ph.D.

Mistie Atkinson is accused of having sex with her
16-year-old biological son several times, while
videotaping the crime.  She sexted her son nude
pictures of herself, and they were planning
to run away together.
Repulsive and sick as it is, incest, including that committed by mothers, is an ugly crime. Yet, when women molest, the societal taboos and the Western cultural chivalry result in a virtual ban on an honest discussion of their conscience-shocking behavior. We either "do not want to know” or would rather forget that women do molest, kill, and manipulate their children. At bestwe search for "reasons" to explain-away such ugly behavior on various convenient excuses, designed to satisfy our romantic, chivalric cultural mythology of saintly motherhood, going back to the first centuries of Christianity.

Why do they really do it? 
– There is often (but not always) a discernible method to these women's "madness":  it is not unusual among "mothers" mastering the "fine art" of manipulation, to be motivated by seeking and gaining mental and emotional control over their male children by sexually seducing them.  By turning her young son against his father, the malignantly narcissistic "mother" transforms the child into her “avenger” for the “transgressions,” often imagined, which she may believe were committed by the child’s father. Incest may become part of the mother's efforts to alienate the child from his father. More often than not extreme parental alienation and emotional manipulation by mother results in folie a deux relationship with the disturbed mother and ends up tragically, leading to the child’s criminal behavior in life.  (See, e.g. Tucker L.S., Cornwall T.P.: Mother-son folie a deux: a case of attempted patricide. American Journal of Psychiatry 1977; 134:10:1146-1147)

In other cases, sex with their sons is no more to these "mothers" than a primitive bodily function, which in their Troglodytic minds of the dregs of society, trumps the law, ethics and basic moral barriers. Other reasons may include the added sexual excitement of breaking the law and societal taboos.

Here's the latest example:
<< Napa police said that videos captured on the boy's phone show Atkinson allegedly performing oral sex and having sexual intercourse with the teen in February. She's also accused of sending sexually explicit images to the boy electronically. "Atkinson and the victim are aware they are biological mother and son," cops said in a release.
       The boy's father, who has sole custody, obtained a restraining order against Atkinson,The Weekly Vice reported.

Amie Sword, age 35, contacted her
10-year-old son she had given up for
adoption as toddler, and engaged
the young boy in a-several-months-
long sexual relationship, before it
was discovered by his guardians.

This case is reminiscent of another incest case, circa 2009-2010, that of Aimee Louise Sword, of Waterford, Michigan, who tracked down on the Internet her son, whom she had given up for adoption as a toddler. Having made a contact with the 10-year-old boy, the 35-year-old "mother" began a sexual relationship with him, which went on for several months undetected, before the boy's legal guardians found out.  Her lack of responsibility and restrain absolutely confounded psychologists. 

This essay is not a comment on the specific cases of Mistie Atkinson or Amie Sword.  Rather, it is a musing about much larger phenomena, from the pop culture painting women as "nurturing saints," when in reality many are master manipulators who molest their sons and mess with their minds, to the psychology of family relations, the "divorce battles", "Gender Wars," and the Family Law, deliberately made and kept adversarial.

Because of the adversarial “Family Law” system, set up by the states’ Bar Associations to benefit, first and foremost, the legions of hungry lawyers, of which the U.S. has more than the rest of the world combined, America’s parents are forced to compete for the “custody” of their children in fully blown "Divorce Battles" and the raging "Gender War." In this war, children – despite their “resiliency,” falsely alleged by the beneficiaries of the hostilities, the lawyers – suffer dearly, often maimed psychologically for life, and for generations to come.  

Jocasta, Oedipus and Medea Complex  
In psychoanalysis, the Jocasta complex is the incestuous sexual desire of a mother towards her son. It may be a latent manifestation of her desire to control her child.  Mothers seeking to spite the child’s father, may engage in extremely harmful behaviors, including sexual and psychological seduction of the child, appealing to the male child's deeply rooted and inescapable Oedipus complex (competition with the father for the mother’s affections), universally acknowledged as the central concept in all schools of psychoanalysis, from classical to post-modernist. 

Jocasta, Oedipus' mother, who became his lover and wife, was
a much tougher enigma for Oedipus to crack than the Sphinx.
An interesting interpretation of the ancient Greek tragedy “Oedipus, the King” by the author of this blog, can be found at http://www.logos-publishing.com/Oedipus-1.htm .  It shows some of the games the "motherly" women play to blind men, while men are desperately looking for truth.

Oedipus and Sphinx, by
Gustave Moreau, 1864
The Father of psychoanalysis, Sigmund Freud, gave the Oedipus complex this succinct definition: 

It is the fate of all of us, perhaps, to direct our first sexual impulse towards our mother and our first hatred and our first murderous wish against our father.”
               (Sigmund Freud, The Interpretation of Dreams, chapter V, "The Material and  Sources of Dreams", (D) Typical Dreams, New York: Avon Books, p. 296.)

In some most pathological cases of Parental Alienation, women seek to harm their children, or even kill them, deliberately, in order to hurt the children’s Father (Medea Complex):  
“When the mother wishes to punish the father by turning their children against him, she is also aggressing against the children. In her unconscious, both the children and the husband represent the same thing… and destructiveness is wished on them both. In short, a mother who brainwashes her children against their father has a Medea Complex.”
     (Robert M. Gordon, Ph.D., The Medea Complex and the Parental Alienation)
Eugène Delacroix. Medea about to
Kill Her Children. 1838.
Oil on canvas. Louvre, Paris, France
Behind the perversion and depravity of harming children, is the State, with its Family Courts benefiting the lawyers and the notorious “Village”, which breeds virtual orphans, thoroughly brainwashed by the State. Their slogan “It takes a Village” is used to remove one or both parents in order to indoctrinate children into being the obedient slaves of the State. Ultimately, that is what is going on, always on "good" excuses, and "in the best interests of children."  

While a dishonest, heartless parent may engage in a campaign of alienating the child from the other biological parent, she is often aided and abetted by the family court. The government, whose effectiveness is magnified by its virtually unlimited power, often acts as an omnipowerful alienator against one or both parents. 

Key to Effective Brainwashing of Children: Removal of Parental Authority, and Substituting “the Village” for One or Both Parents

A child is a moral and political tabula rasa. The Latin phrase means a blank slate, on which his/her grownup teachers and indoctrinators can inscribe any toxic ideology. When the biological father, usually the source of moral guidance for children, is removed, the state  can brainwash the child as Nazis did, without having to overcome the resistance from the ethical and moral barriers, usually instilled in children by their biological parents. These barriers allow the normally-developed adults to distinguish good from evil. But the state needs children who can be told what is good and the state will use every opportunity to screw with the youngsters' minds to fit the state's needs. 

Tabula rasa is also featured in Sigmund Freud's psychoanalysis. Freud saw personality traits as being formed by the family dynamics. (For extreme cases see, e.g., Oedipus complex, Jocasta complex, Medea complex above.) According to Freud, humans lack free will, in that they inevitably become the product of their upbringing; and also – the genetic influences on human personality are minimal when compared to the person's upbringing. In psychoanalysis, one is largely determined by one's upbringing, and we all intuitively and empirically know this to be true.  Now, pause and ponder over this ...  Isn't it why totalitarian governments always claimed the young generation of people to be their own?
You may find many events in history that show totalitarian regimes forcing the parents out or destroying them, then assuming their role. See, for example www.Logos-Publishing.com.

From Hitler’s Third Reich, to America’s Fourth Reich, governments, "leaders" and governmental organizations systematically remove parents particularly fathers – from their children’s lives, so the totalitarian State could turn these children into its obedient slaves, efficient operatives, and cannon fodder. As Hitler said in his programme book Mein Kampf:

"Only the greatness of the sacrifices will win new fighters for the cause, till perseverance finally receives the reward of success.
But for this, one needs the children from the great masses of the nation. "

In the U.S., it is the Family Courts, who harvest children en mass; in Nazi Germany it was the youth organizations linked to the Nazi Party, NSDAP:
