AVFM Contributor Michael Conzachi further enlightens us to the difficulty of defending military members accused of sexual assault.

Army Judge Advocate Major Mason S. Weiss authors a brutally honest paper on the extreme difficulty that military members have who face false allegations of sexual misconduct.

His draft paper that can be found here will most likely NOT be published in the next edition of the Army Lawyer Magazine.

In his draft, Major Weiss; an Army military justice instructor at Fort Leonard Wood Missouri, accurately depicts the frustration and extreme difficulty of defending service members against false allegations of sexual assault.

Major Weiss describes a hypothetical case of a soldier falsely accused of sexual assault, who comes to the realization that it truly is the UNITED STATES versus him. Read how there is a small army of advocates and prosecutors assigned to the alleged victim and prosecution, and virtually nothing and no one to the accused.

Since 2008, Congress; along with the sexual assault grievance industry, led by the likes of Senators Kristen Gillibrand, Claire McCaskill, and a handful of others, has chipped away; piece by piece, to virtually eliminate the constitutional protections and due process rights of service members accused of sexual misconduct. And have exponentially expanded what is considered sexual misconduct.

In addition to the expansion of definitions and the decimation of constitutional protections, post-conviction remedies are being eliminated.

In any military conviction involving sex offenses, it is a virtual certainty that clemency petitions following conviction will be denied. Plainly said; there is virtually no military commander on the planet who will risk his or her career, granting clemency in any sexual assault case, post-conviction.

A leader who grants a clemency petition will automatically result in the referral to the Judge Advocate Command and Secretary of that Branch. Many commanders display bravery on the battlefield, but just one clemency petition approved may end his or her career and draw the delusional wrath of the Gillibrand’s, McCaskill’s and the usual array of hysterics.

It is highly unlikely that his article draft will be published in any forum as it defies the politically correct narrative of the mythical and non-existent sexual assault epidemic in the U.S. Military.

Major Weiss should be commended for his honest commentary and his article should be read in its entirety by every member of the Senate and House Armed Services Committee, but it won’t.

With the vast array of published articles on AVFM and other sites of the draconian sexual assault witch hunt mentality of the U.S. military, it is explicitly clear that the United States Military is now the most dangerous and hostile work environment for males. Never in the history of this great nation have the genders been pitted against one another as they have for the past 7+ years.

Never in the history of this great nation, the vast overwhelming majority of military leaders, commanders, and political office holders have been cowed and browbeaten into submission by the hysterics of the sexual assault grievance industry.

The blowback of the sexual assault grievance industry and the opening of combat jobs to women has already had an effect on retention and recruitment, especially in the combat arms arenas. Many military males are now refusing to be in any position with military females that would risk being falsely accused. Some females who are not of the falsely accusing type are already complaining about being unable to do their jobs, simply because males are refusing to be in the same room or situation with them alone or without protection against false accusations.

Regardless of what one’s opinion is on serving in the military; many in the country see it as a noble and honorable profession, and it is.

Unless the pendulum, that has swung, almost into oblivion in the depths of lunacy and constitutional obliteration, I would not recommend military service to any male any longer.

Until political leaders such as Gillibrand, McCaskill, Ayotte and others can be voted out of office and politicians of both parties who serve on the Senate and House Armed Services Committees, realize that service members vote, and have families and friends that vote. And understand that this path is decimating the military, will they finally wake up and smell what is being shoveled.

There will most likely be some comments to this post, and as long as they follow the comments policy of AVFM, they are most welcome. I would ask that those who comment, or those who will read this post also contact their elected representatives and voice their concerns.

In the past 7+ years, the sexual assault hysteria cottage industry, the social experimentation, the soon to be forcing of women in combat roles, the radical and hostile elimination of Christian religious preferences, and the Veteran’s Assistance Administration scandals are destroying the military from within.

It is hoped that there is an administration change in November if there is any hope of bringing a sense of sanity, normalcy, and fairness back into this process. Even then, it may take years to undo the damage.

It’s no longer just a sexual assault witch hunt problem; it’s a national security issue.

 

Syrian “Refugees” Taken in by Extremist Groups in Canada?

http://tsecnetwork.ca/2016/03/08/syrian-refugees-being-subjected-to-extremist-beliefs-in-canada/

Newly arrived Syrian refugees are already being embraced by extremist groups in Canada. The Government of Canada appears to be doing little to nothing to steer such individuals away from extremist groups or guide them towards the path of integration.

The Muslim Association of Canada, which claims on its own website to be followers of Hassan al Banna and the Muslim Brotherhood, is already involved. The Muslim Brotherhood, founded in Egypt in 1928, is an Islamist group that believes their form of Islam should dominate all Muslims and non-Muslims alike. Their aim is a global caliphate that will dominate all others.

Note the following from a fund raising website:

The Muslim Association of Canada, a partner is (sic) Save A Family From Syria is sponsoring Syrian Refugees to settle in Toronto. The more money we raise, the more refugees we can sponsor. Please give generously. 100% of all the money we receive goes to the families.[1]

Not only is the Muslim Association of Canada involved, it is the Masjid Toronto that is specifically identified.  This is made clear in the following:

The First Unitarian Congregation of Toronto has partnered with the Muslim Association of Canada (MAC) and specifically their Masjid Toronto to work together to bring families to Toronto and settle them into a new life here in Canada.

A long time leader at the mosque, Dr El-tantawy Attia was asked about teachings at the Dundas Street mosque in Toronto. His views were:

Here, we follow the teachings of the Muslim Brotherhood.”[2]

Al Jazeera, a Qatar based newspaper with open Muslim Brotherhood leanings did a “fluff” piece on the role of the Muslim Association of Canada and their sponsorship of refugee families.[3] It highlighted the fundraising as well as noting that it was the MAC drew up a shortlist of sponsorship candidates.

In Vancouver, Syrian refugees are being met by the Muslim Association of Canada. Rather ironically, after the arrival of the Syrian refugees, the MAC in Vancouver ran an event on “Islam vs. Terrorism: Debunking ISIS and al Qaida.” The speaker was Dr. Jamal Badawi.[4]Dr. Badawi was identified by the Muslim Brotherhood of North America has being on its board of directors (Shura Council). He was also identified in the 1991 General Memorandum as being a key figure in the future of the Muslim Brotherhood movement in North America.[5]

Who Did the Selection?

The number of Syrians arriving in Canada who are from refugee camps is apparently around 10%. Although Canadians thought they were ‘rescuing’ refugees, it turns out that about 90% of them were already living in homes or apartments.[6]

The question then arises: Who did the selection and made up the list of names of those to be interviewed for travel to Canada? This is not clear from either the Government of Canada or the UN. It is worth noting, however, that the head of the Political Bureau of the Syrian Muslim Brotherhood is Hassan Hachimi. Mr. Hachimi, a Toronto based architect,[7]left Canada to become the head of the political bureau of the Syrian Muslim Brotherhood[8], according to a statement by the Muslim Brotherhood.[9] Here in Canada, he was on the board of directors of the Muslim Association of Canada[10] and also on the board of directors for the Muslim World League (Canada).[11]

LGBT lobby bullies private catholic school

they said private religious schools and institutions are exempt. how long before they start harassing churches that don’t recognize same sex marriages?

http://www.breitbart.com/big-government/2016/03/09/lgbt-lobby-bullies-catholic-school-into-accommodating-transgender-students/

After LGBT protests targeted a private Catholic academy in Rhode Island for its policy against catering to crossdressing students, the school now says it is open to reversing its rules and making “reasonable accommodations” for children who want to be treated as members of the opposite sex.

According to the current school handbook, Mount Saint Charles Academy in Woonsocket “is unable to make accommodations for transgender students” and therefore “does not accept transgender students nor is MSC able to continue to enroll students who identify as transgender.”

The academy presently forbids boys from using the girls’ bathrooms or locker rooms, but that may soon change under pressure from activists. Protesters set up an independent Facebook page attacking the school, under the name “No hate at MSC.”

LGBT activists crowdfunded more than $5,000 to “educate” school administrators on gay issues and “create safe spaces” for transgender students in locker rooms and bathrooms, even though the school has had no requests for admission from transgender students. One local LGBT group, YouthPride, also offered to help educate the school on best practices for indulging transgender students.

The mainstream media have joined the activists in ganging up on the small school, accusing it of discrimination and “hateful rhetoric” simply for holding fast to its founding principles.

The academy is run by a Catholic religious order called the Brothers of the Sacred Heart, acommunity founded in France after the French revolution to “to rescue young people from ignorance, to prepare them for life, and to give them knowledge and love of religion.” The school’s declared primary mission is “the evangelization of young people,” which presumably includes a Christian understanding of sexual identity.

Moreover, the academy expressly aims at “the formation of the whole person, traditional values, high expectations, self-discipline, fairness, professional competence, and collaboration,” which would preclude encouraging young people from self-destructive experimentation with gender fluidity, contrary to Catholic teaching on the human person.

After the community backlash, however, the school “has been exploring ways in which it might provide reasonable accommodations for transgender students,” officials said in an apologetic statement on March 4. “Please know that we would very much like to address the issue, and your prayers and kind assistance would go a long way in allowing us achieve that goal.”

Throughout his pontificate, Pope Francis has fought against what he calls “genderideology,” arguing that the manipulation of gender constitutes an assault on the Creator and a disrespect for his designs. In his encyclical letter on the environment, Laudato Si’, the Pope denounced the relativism at the core of gender theory and urged those struggling with gender identity issues to accept their bodies as God made them.

“The acceptance of our bodies as God’s gift,” Francis wrote, “is vital for welcoming and accepting the entire world as a gift from the Father and our common home, whereas thinking that we enjoy absolute power over our own bodies turns, often subtly, into thinking that we enjoy absolute power over creation.”

The Pope argued that human ecology underscores the relationship between human life and the moral law, which is “inscribed in our nature.” This human ecology, he wrote, is based on the fact that man “has a nature that he must respect and that he cannot manipulate at will.”

“Learning to accept our body, to care for it and to respect its fullest meaning, is an essential element of any genuine human ecology,” Francis said.

Accepting one’s nature also carries over into gender differences, Francis observed, underscoring the Christian vision of humanity as male and female.

“Valuing one’s own body in its femininity or masculinity is necessary if I am going to be able to recognize myself in an encounter with someone who is different,” he wrote. “In this way we can joyfully accept the specific gifts of another man or woman, the work of God the Creator, and find mutual enrichment.”

On the other hand, Francis insisted, “it is not a healthy attitude which would seek to cancel out sexual difference because it no longer knows how to confront it.”
