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His draft paper that can be found here will most likely NOT be published in the next edition of the Army Lawyer Magazine.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

 

 

Europe’s Men Are Too Feminine and Can’t Defend Their Women from ‘Rapefugees’

http://russia-insider.com/en/society/europes-tragedy-too-much-angela-merkel-too-little-masculinity/ri12472

 

After the incidents of sexual assault in Cologne, Germany on New Year’s Eve committed by Muslim refugees against German women, feminist apologetics have acquired renewed vigor in the European debate.

Pundits and politicians assure the public that refugee males now storming the gates of Europe from the Middle East, Northern Africa and Central Asia will be required to learn that Western women are independent and sexually liberated. Such arguments, however, are obviously too weak to have any impact on the male cultures representative of certain refugee groups.

To these individuals, strong European women are ‘easy’ and easy victims; they have respect only for strong men – and strong men aren’t exactly thick on the ground in Europe.

The deficiency of masculinity in European culture renders it impotent in the face of the political and cultural chaos that has escalated along with growing immigration.

Instead of a single-minded focus on imposing liberal feminist values on Muslim males, it might well be much more beneficial for Europeans to consider if the feminist war on masculinity might be the underlying cause of the weakness of European culture – feeble and defenseless as it is – against the culture of immigrants and refugees. The irony is that the vacuum feminism has created means that women become victims of an aggressive male culture.

A recent survey conducted by the Pew Research Centre shows that the number of young men in the US who want to marry has dropped to the lowest level ever recorded.

American author Suzanne Venker claims that the pervasive cultural influence of feminism is the cause. Venker states that men explain their lack of desire to marry with the observation that “women are no longer women”; feminism has programmed women to see men as the enemy. As a result, males have been made redundant in post-modern Western culture. Women no longer need men as a provider, protector or father of her children; an anonymous semen donor can do the job of creating a baby if a woman so chooses.

Since the 1960s, modern mothers have raised their sons to be women, soaking them in feminine values like accepting responsibility for household chores, being caring, understanding and attentive, and bend to every wish of the woman. This has produced a generation of soft, insecure men, who are out of touch with their masculine nature, identity and strength.

Indeed, Danish police officers were seen playing with refugee children on motorways instead of doing their job of enforcing the law. They were lauded as heroes in the media. They acted like women with soft hearts and not as men entrusted with defending their country and the rule of law.

Camille Pagilla, self-professed “feminist dissident”, put it like this in the Daily Mail: “The entire elite class now, in finance, in politics and so on, none of them have military service – hardly anyone, there are a few. But there is no prestige attached to it anymore. That is a recipe for disaster… These people don’t think in military ways, so there’s this illusion out there that people are basically nice, people are basically kind, if we’re just nice and benevolent to everyone they’ll be nice too. They literally don’t have any sense of evil or criminality.’ According to Paglia, the results are there for all to see in the on-going dysfunction in Washington, where politicians ‘lack practical skills of analysis and construction’”.

The precise problem is that Europe’s political leaders have no military background, unlike leaders of the past, for instance Roosevelt, de Gaulle and Churchill. For this reason, they lack the basic understanding for defending their culture, their country and its inherent values. They are self-deprecating and apologetic, gullible and caring to the point where their policies become severely harmful to the populations they are supposed to protect.

The feminine approach threatens to throw society into chaos and outright collapse because the rule of law and its enforcement are made subject to the priorities of care, understanding and inclusion. The shortage of masculine virtues affects society and the political system. The shortage of masculine virtues is the underlying cause of the immigration problems.

The present clash with Islam, driven as it is by a dominant male culture, reveals the lamentable shortcomings of post-modern feminist culture, which does not possess the strength to defend itself against a male-dominated culture. The gross violations against women on New Year’s Eve in Cologne provide a chilling reminder of the contrast; male aggression has gained a foothold and feminine values are helpless and unable to resist.

At the moment, Europe resembles a woman who allows herself to be battered and abused by her man. Like many battered women, she tries to cover her man’s violations, makes excuses for him, and returns to him time after time.

At the same time, immigration is inevitable in a globalized world. If Europe is to survive in an age of mass migration, there must be a male revolution. This revolution will be as important as the struggle for women’s rights in the 1960s. It is vital for Western men to acknowledge this need and start building social, cultural and political capital based on masculine virtues to defend the values upon which Europe is based.

 

Farrah Abraham the Girl who cried rape

Farrah Abraham America’s biggest attention seeker. again cry rape 2-3 months after she falsely accused James Deen of rape. But she finds it ok to date a man with a history of violence against a woman and tried to bond her daughter with him.

http://pagesix.com/2016/03/07/farrah-abraham-admits-she-wasnt-almost-raped-by-uber-driver/

 

“Teen Mom OG” star Farrah Abraham, who last week claimed that an Uber driver “almost raped’’ her, now acknowledges that he never tried to lay a hand on her, but instead was just “looking at her lecherously” and that “it could have escalated into a rape situation.”

Abraham now says, “I got into the car and the gentleman was looking me up and down.”

Abraham described how in January 2015 she ordered an Uber to pick her up from a hotel in Jericho, LI. She claims the driver asked her to walk down the road to his car instead of picking her up in front of the hotel, and then turned around to stare at her as she got in. She said she felt so uncomfortable that she immediately got out of the car.

“Something was wrong with him, like he was mentally disabled,” said Abraham.

Her then-boyfriend Simon Saran came out to talk to the driver and the two got into an argument.

The driver complained to Uber after the incident, and the company responded by banning Abraham. The car service said she appeared to have made the incident up.

So why did she say on her podcast that she was “almost raped”? “It could have escalated into a rape situation,” she explained.

The Soviet Communist Roots of International Women’s Day

 in Eastern Europe feminism is synonymous with communism.

http://theothermccain.com/2015/03/09/international-womens-day-communist-history-feminism/

“International Women’s Day” (IWD) is a Communist holiday. Despite my extensive knowledge of communist history, I didn’t know this until I saw a post on the Tumblr blog of Mehreen Kasana, a Pakistani-born radical feminist who lives in New York:

This time when you celebrate International Women’s Day, make it a point to remember that it started off as International Working Women’s Day until the bourgeoisie hijacked it and removed its class component to present a false and unified ‘sisterhood’ so that women were discouraged from participating in the struggle against upper class hegemony.

Thank you for the tip, Ms. Kasana! It’s amazing the things the bourgeoisie can learn by reading feminist Tumblr blogs. So I checked Wikipedia, and sure enough, it’s true: The first International Women’s Day was organized in 1909 by the Socialist Party of America, and this anti-capitalist holiday played a pivotal role in history:

In 1917 demonstrations marking International Women’s Day in Saint Petersburg on the last Sunday in February (which fell on March 8 on the Gregorian calendar) initiated the February Revolution. Women in Saint Petersburg went on strike that day for “Bread and Peace” — demanding the end of World War I, an end to Russian food shortages, and the end of czarism. [Bolshevik revolutionary] Leon Trotsky wrote, “23 February (8th March) was International Woman’s Day and meetings and actions were foreseen. But we did not imagine that this ‘Women’s Day’ would inaugurate the revolution. Revolutionary actions were foreseen but without date. But in morning, despite the orders to the contrary, textile workers left their work in several factories and sent delegates to ask for support of the strike … which led to mass strike … all went out into the streets.”
Following the October Revolution, the Bolshevik Alexandra Kollontai and Vladimir Lenin made it an official holiday in the Soviet Union … On May 8th, 1965 by the decree of the USSR Presidium of the Supreme Soviet International Women’s Day was declared a non-working day in the USSR “in commemoration of the outstanding merits of Soviet women in communistic construction, in the defense of their Fatherland during the Great Patriotic War, in their heroism and selflessness at the front and in the rear, and also marking the great contribution of women to strengthening friendship between peoples, and the struggle for peace. But still, women’s day must be celebrated as are other holidays.”
From its official adoption in Russia following the Soviet Revolution in 1917 the holiday was predominantly celebrated in communist and socialist countries.

 

You can read more of that history here (PDF).

America won the Cold War, but the deadly totalitarian ideology of the Soviet Union — the “Evil Empire” as Ronald Reagan famously called it — has been resurrected in the name of feminism.

Honestly, I knew nothing of this history Sunday when I noticed friends on Twitter mocking International Women’s Day.

As far as I knew then, International Women’s Day was just one of those silly occasions created by the United Nations and promoted by the tax-exempt non-profit feminist groups that feed at the trough where governments and gigantic foundations (Ford, Rockefeller, Gates, etc.) shovel out grants to crusading liberal do-gooder types in sensible shoes. Then I noticed radical feminist Laurie Penny pimping IWD.

That’s right: Laurie Penny’s book quoted Alexandra Kollontai, the Bolshevik commissar who helped make IWD a holiday in the Soviet Union! Let’s quote the commissar, eh?

“The communist economy does away with the family. In the period of the dictatorship of the proletariat . . . the family loses its significance as an economic unit. The external economic functions of the family disappear . . .
“Once the family has been stripped of its economic functions and its responsibilities towards the younger generation and is no longer central to the existence of the woman, it has ceased to be a family.”
— Alexandra Kollontai, 1921

This, my friends, is the ideology celebrated on the communist holiday International Women’s Day. The more you know about feminism, the more you recognize its familiar totalitarian agenda.
