GOVERNMENTS ASLEEP AT THE WHEEL!
from Peter van de Voorde October 2008
matters that demand urgent action, 'deadbeat' governments
of the western democracies have become the masters of inaction.
For many years these inept governments have allowed the
cowboys, bullies and psychopaths of the International finance
industry to run amok and dictate how the system operate.
The predictable result has seen the collapse of the global
financial system and the destruction of the financial security
of millions of hard working people around the world. Suddenly
we witness a panic-stricken reaction by these same 'deadbeat'
governments whose ignorance and inaction caused this disaster
in the first place.
are other areas of concern that have also continued to be
ignored and will undoubtedly cause much social upheaval
in the future. The subject of social justice is something
governments pay much lip service to, but ultimately results
in very little action on the ground. One of the greatest
areas of concern is the way western governments have mishandled
the complex issues surrounding Family Law. Again we witness
how the cowboys, bullies and psychopaths of the lucrative
divorce industry, have been allowed to take control and
run riot for decades. Yet again we see the lives and future
of many millions of innocent men, women and children around
the globe, destroyed in the process.
thirty five years of unimpeded, relentless growth of the
International Family Law industry and its mercenaries, we
are now starting to see the horrific ramifications of long
term widespread International government ignorance and inaction.
Many millions of decent, responsible parents and other loving
family members are forcibly being removed from their biological
children against their will around the globe, at levels
that meet the criteria of a pandemic.
of the problems here is that of the sophisticated brainwashing
that has been inflicted on the unsuspecting media, public,
bureaucrats and politicians alike. Apart from some tokenism,
Governments generally have chosen not to receive policy
advice on Family Law matters from credible independent sources.
Rather, they seek guidance from their own self-interested
bias bureaucracies and senior advisers, or from the family
law industry itself. No matter how accurate it may be, cautious
and politically in-correct family law advice is not welcomed
by governments in the western democracies, nor is it widely
are other reasons too, why the public hears so little in
detail from those who approach family law issues rationally.
The so-called family law 'experts' who dominate the debate,
do so in a self serving manner, which has nothing to do
with delivering justice and equality, but everything to
do with maintaining the status quo. Operating intensely
on several fronts, most are to do with the intimidation
of those speaking out, and the withholding of information,
in order to stifle debate.
most government employees are gagged from making public
comment on contentious issues. Governments prefer to employ
government agencies, and making use of their own in house
public relations experts, to craft carefully tailored manipulative
researchers are under intense pressure to conform to the
prevailing paradigm of feminist propaganda and alarmism,
if they wish to receive funding for their research.
self-serving members of the establishment who have a vested
interest in maintaining the current badly flawed family
law industry, continuously speak in declamatory terms about
those who dare to challenge them. The broader community
and the mainstream media unquestionably accept this melodramatic
propaganda as fact.
we see the suppression of important information on the operations
of the family courts, child support agencies and the health
profession, which would expose the gross injustices of the
system and the horrific effects of the systematic persecution
of its victims.
secrecy gives great cause for community concern. The question
that needs to be asked is, why is this information kept
secret from the community? What are they hiding? Why are
they so afraid? Why are more questions not being asked in
our parliaments? This is the same 'deadbeat' governmental
ignorance and ineptitude, that brought about the collapse
of the global financial system.
Governments urgently need to recast the sources from which
it draws its advice on family laws. The shrill alarmism
of its public advisers, and the often fundamentalist feminist
policy initiatives, bubbling up from the depths of the civil
service, have all long ago been detached from reality. The
international family law industry is an obscene collection
of self interest groups, hell bent on ripping as much of
the financial resources of unsuspecting separating parents
as possible, as acknowledged in a plethora of reports. Every
one of the many artificial remedies put forward by successive
governments, have proved a costly failure and a complete
waste of time and resources. Clearly, the wrong horses are
making government spin doctors have been elevated to god
like status, and their deceitful mythical rhetoric is promoted
as gospel and used by those who are benefiting from their
ill-gotten gains stripped from separating families. Only
a handful of investigative journalists have taken the time
to seek out the truth, as these stories tend to be viewed
as being politically in-correct and unfashionable, and are
not easy to sell in the current climate.
mooted recently by so many around the globe, perhaps the
time has come for the governments of the western democracies,
to start sourcing their family law policy making information,
from those in the community who are the most disadvantaged
and suffering the worst excesses of cruelty from those at
the centre of the present debacle. Continuing to source
this information from those that are profiteering from this
gross travesty of justice, and who themselves are the perpetrators,
shows an alarming lack of governmental understanding of
the complex issues at hand.
this enlightenment of our legislators and the media were
to occur, then at least, there is the possibility that some
real solutions are likely to emerge for breaking the current
impasse. This gross betrayal of public trust by so many
in positions of influence, makes the great and pretentious
look very small and impotent. In fact in the complex area
of family law, our political legislators continue to perform
in a manner commensurate with those lacking the intellectual
aptitude to count to ten.
voices of reason are as thin on the ground as a cold beer
in the middle of the Sahara. How much longer are we going
to tolerate this holocaust of our cherished family bonds
with our children? How much longer do we continue to sit
back and silently accept the propaganda put out by the spin
doctors employed by our 'deadbeat' governments?
can you as an individual do to bring about change?
can do much, particularly since historically, nothing this
unjust is sustainable and therefore change is inevitable.
However this problem is not going to resolve itself, and
we can see how inept governments are, at solving complex
problems. So it is up to us, first and foremost, to start
driving the debate and setting the agenda.
politicians are drawn from an ignorant community, so we
cannot expect our current crop of politicians to provide
the answers, it is wholly and solely up to all of us to
educate the community. There are many ways an informed community
can send the strong message to our politicians, that 'we
will no longer tolerate the state forcibly removing children
from the love, care and protection of responsible parents'.
It is possible,
THINK ABOUT IT!

Activists Atop Crane In Ohio
Tenn is a man of conviction. Since the day I met him,
one thing, and one thing alone has guided his every move.
Tenn is a Daddy who misses and worries about his daughter
Madison every moment of every day.
Madison and Tenn are victims of Madison's mother Shannon
and the disaster called the family court system. Shannon
illegally abducted Madison from California to Illinois.
When she learned the law would make her return Madison,
she immediately filed false allegations of domestic violence
against Tenn. As I described here and here, not only has
Madison's mother broken the law, she's being rewarded
for her actions.
Today he took his cause to new heights. Tenn, from California,
in a Spiderman suit and Paul Fisher, from Ohio, in a Batman
suit, both members of Fathers4Justice, are currently atop
a 100 foot crane outside the Ohio Stadium in Columbus.
They've unfurled a 40 foot banner that says STOP THE WAR
are at least 100,000 people passing underneath on their
way to the Ohio State football game. Tenn describes at
least 100 police, sheriff and SWAT officers gathering
below. He adds that a police helicopter keeps buzzing
very close by.
When asked to comment, John Fowler, National Coordinator
for F4J said, "These fathers have waited years for
change. Their pleas have fallen of deaf ears when all
they are asking for is to be able to love a raise their
children. Why should children be denied the right to have
two loving parents?"
Tenn has spent the last couple of years volunteering as
a board member and California coordinator for Fathers4Justice.
Fathers 4 Justice originated in the UK a few years ago.
Founder Matt O'Connor recently announced he was shutting
down his group, again. There are now F4J branches in several
countries including Canada, where family rights activists
Rob Robinson (Batman) and Kris Titus (Wonderwoman) regularly
make the news with similar stunts.
Describing the phone calls he receives at all hours of
the day Tenn says, "We get dozens of new members
every month, just from California." "Each parent
thinks their case is unique. They don't realize that I've
heard the same story hundreds of times."
He says he understands that they need to get it off their
chests. "And fathers aren't the only parents who
are victims," he adds, "mothers and grandparents
call me too." It's estimated that by 2010 one quarter
of America's noncustodial parents will be female.
Tenn says making any parent "noncustodial" is
wrong. Unless they've been convicted of a crime or don't
want to be part of their child's life. He even says he
wants Shannon to have equal access to Madison, after she
gets out of jail.
Shared parenting and shared custody are supported by over
85% of the population. Why then can't these parents and
legislators get laws passed to guarantee equal parental
rights to all fit parents? The answer is very simple.
There are "protective mother" groups who are
financially and politically supported by feminist and
domestic violence organizations.
They often use lies and debunked "facts" to
convince legislators that passing these laws will hurt
children. As I described here I watched as they lied under
oath to derail AB1305, the 2005 California shared parenting
bill. Less than 5% of divorces are high conflict. Sixty
to eighty percent of all domestic violence charges are
found to be unnecessary or false. Isn't it time to have
laws that fit the facts?
Most families would benefit from shared parenting. Studies
show it actually reduces conflict. When confronted about
the controversial nature of the demonstration Mr. Fowler
replied "What would you be willing to do if a corrupt
court denied you access to your children?" . Jugs

DESTRUCTIVE 'SOLE CUSTODIAL PARENT MODEL'
da Peter van de Voorde
[traduzione italiana in corso]
In order to enlighten those who are still in denial about
the existence of Parental Alienation and to show the destructive
consequences of the Sole Parent Custody model, I have amended
the “Biderman’s Chart of Coercion” http://www.nwrain.net/~refocus/coerchrt.html
to illustrate how the same brainwashing techniques are used
by sole custodial parents to control every aspect of their
children’s lives, and how they are able to eliminate
the non-custodial parent out of their child’s life with
ease. They are able to drag these unfortunate manipulated
children into adulthood with a false perception of reality,
leaving the community to pick up the pieces of the resulting
problems these dysfunctional parents have created.
This clearly shows why the “sole parent custody model”
has to be abolished before we can even begin to move forward
to relieve the nightmare our children face under the current
To remove all checks and balances by allowing a Sole Custodial
Parent to remove half of a child’s biological family,
who can provide those checks and balances during their childhood
and formative years, with impunity, leaves our children open
to all types of abuse including but not limited to physical,
sexual, emotional and psychological abuse.
This is State sponsored Child Abuse and is a gross violation
of the universally accepted human rights of non custodial
parents and their biological children.
Biderman's Chart of Coercion:
(When applied in the context of the destructive Sole Parent
"Most people who brainwash...use methods similar
to those of prison guards who recognize that physical control
is never easily accomplished without the cooperation of the
prisoner. The most effective way to gain that cooperation
is through subversive manipulation of the mind and feelings
of the victim, who then becomes a psychological, as well as
a physical, prisoner."

on Torture", which depicts the brainwashing of prisoners

"Promises to Ourselves"
ABC's 20/20 will be running a segment
on Fathers and Child Custody. As many of you are probably
aware Alec Baldwin's new book "Promises to Ourselves"
is scheduled for release next week. The segment tonight
will include comments from Baldwin
Promise to Ourselves: A Journey Through Fatherhood and
Alec Baldwin on Divorce, Children and Reconciliation
In his new book (in stores on Tuesday), "A Promise
to Ourselves: A Journey Through Fatherhood and Divorce,"
Baldwin chronicles his journey for other fathers who are
seeking custody and struggling for justice in family court.
He says it's time to do something about the business of
divorce in America and, in typical Baldwin fashion, he
doesn't mince words.
"I don't care if the judges and the lawyers die of
heart attacks in the process of getting their job done.
They are corrupt, inefficient, lazy, stupid -- they're
the most God-awful people."
Baldwin believes that many family court lawyers and their
manipulations and delays make the child custody duel much
worse than it needs to be. "The judges are like pit
bosses in Vegas casinos. Their job is to make sure everybody
stays at the table and keeps gambling."

Alec Baldwin and Kim Basinger's cutthroat custody battle
over their 12-year-old daughter, Ireland, has made international
headlines for years. The couple divorced in 2002 after
nine years of marriage, but the vicious accusations on
both sides continued, culminating in the infamous 2007

Separated husbands and wives who block their former partners
from seeing their children could be forced to do community
service under new laws coming into force in the autumn.
The move is likely to be welcomed by fathers' rights groups,
which in recent years have led high-profile campaigns to
highlight the problems fathers have maintaining contact
with their children once relationships break down.
But it has drawn criticism from some justice experts. 'I'm
not convinced unpaid work will change the way people think
or behave,' said Anthony Douglas, chief executive of Cafcass,
which advises the courts on the interests of children in
family proceedings. 'It might be the right thing to do in
a handful of cases. But what we really need is more specialist
family support services with counselling for both children
Harry Fletcher, spokesman for the probation union, Napo,
said it could see thousands of people, mainly women, criminalised.
'It could mean that distraught mothers do unpaid work alongside
persons convicted of criminal offences,' he warned. 'It
would conflict with childcare responsibilities.'
The Children and Adoption Act, which comes into force in
November, will see parents, who fail to comply with contact
orders handed down in the family courts, made to carry out
up to 100 hours of community service, performing tasks such
as collecting litter or working in a charity shop. If they
fail to carry out the tasks, the penalty can be increased
to up to 200 hours' community service and result in a fine.
The new measures reflect a growing concern about the family
courts system. Critics say that it is cumbersome, lacks
transparency and that social workers involved in drawing
up reports have too much power. 'The court system is so
slow and adversarial and the punishments for disobeying
so seldom used that people feel they can get away with stopping
a father or a mother from seeing their child,' said Jon
Davies, chief executive of Families Need Fathers. 'But we
are sceptical about these new laws. What we need is a change
to the adversarial court system. We need to stop people
going to court in the first place.'
Cafcass deals with 85,000 cases each year, involving separating
couples who have children. Up to 15,000 of these cases result
in contact orders being issued. Currently, parents who refuse
to allow former partners to have contact with their children
are forced to attend dispute resolution talks. But there
are few sanctions to force parents to comply with the contact
The issue of access to children of separated and divorced
couples has come to the fore in recent years, with fathers'
rights groups claiming that they are getting a raw deal.
The issue has been raised predominantly by men's rights
groups because courts usually decide that the child should
stay with the mother when couples split up. Members of the
militant group Fathers 4 Justice have launched a series
of high-profile stunts to draw attention to their grievances,
including taking to the roof of Labour deputy leader Harriet
Harman's home dressed as superheroes.
According to Napo, the vast majority of the individuals
who breach contact arrangements are women, often because
a mother believed that her children would suffer as a consequence
of contact with the father.
A government spokeswoman defended the new laws: 'These new
measures, which include ordering an individual to attend
contact activities such as a parenting class, or carry out
unpaid work, give the court new ways to help find solutions
where there is a serious conflict between parties.'
Marcel Vervloesem, is becoming blind,
as a consequence of a hunger and thirst strike, to request
the respect of his constitutional rights. He was sentenced
to four years of prison for crimes which medicine recognizes
he is physically unable to carry out.
The priority of the government is to get Belgium rid of
man who exposed corruption covering the industry of children's
sexual exploitation. The press has made the description
a merry entry of Marcel Vervloesem in prison, to spend
four comfortable years there to write his memoirs. The
censure is applied manu militari. The police force of
Turnhout intervened within three minutes, armed to he
teeth, to stop the photographic report of an action in
front of his prison.
Vervloesem has declined the offer of a couple, which had
come the day before his imprisonment, to offer to hide
him in Germany, then in France. He had no illusion had
on his fate, following his 31 days hunger strike experience
in 2005, for exactly the same request. Cardiac and diabetic,
he had been awaked every fifteen minutes. It was for "to
see whether he was not dead", had then explained
the ministry of justice.
A thirst strike ensures blindness, because eyes need a
lot of water. It also ensures the reduction in the quantity
of blood. This results into a fall of the blood-pressure,
a rise of the cardiac flow, and a rise of the sugar in
the blood. It thus acts of an aggravated danger to a man
who suffers from heart failure and diabetes. Nothing guarantees
that the authorities would be reassured of releasing him
blind, because his memory raises a problem.
Marcel Vervloesem denounced the paedocriminal network
Zandvoort, with over a 100.000 pictures of crime on children.
All the mothers of victim, who asked for justice while
refusing to make concessions to the network, ended-up
in prison, object similar miscarriages of justice.
When a man does not find d' another solution than an atrocious
death, but probably necessary so that EU vaguely foresees
to work on a solution that guarantee Europeans the respect
of its own laws, the "intelligentsia" and the
ministers speak about "blackmail".
The Werkgroep Morkhoven, association he founded to assist
discriminated people, reminded the ministry of justice
a complaint against X for no assistance to a person in
danger, which dates from the 2005 hunger strike. It is
expected to be treated in 2015 by the European Court of
Human Rights, since there is no hope for the application
of the law in Belgium in any question regarding corruption
and child trade.
symbol of the position of the Belgian government as regards
of fighting organised crime and right to equality, its

a nurse who returns home as from 20:00 hours. Nobody was
thus present during the night, for first aid in the event
of foreseeable heart attack. The doctor did not envisage
transferring him in a prison with infirmary, before the
blocking of kidneys, which according to him should only
occur on the 6th day. An intervention of the minstry of
justice has managed to have him transfered him a day earlier.
Inadmissible behaviour of the King.

Valencia - 1a sentenza a favore dell'affido condiviso
17 settembre 2008
El Tribunal de Catalunya se pronuncia a favor
de la custodia compartida. Por primera vez ha sido considerada
beneficiosa para la evolución del niño en
casos de ruptura.
Avv. Luis Arego Fonte
Barcelona. (EFE).- El Tribunal Superior de Justicia de
Catalunya (TSJC), unificador de doctrina en derecho civil
catalán, se ha manifestado por primera vez a favor
de la custodia compartida de los hijos en una sentencia
de divorcio, por considerarla beneficiosa para la evolución
del niño en casos de ruptura matrimonial.
La sentencia, dictada por la máxima instancia en
derecho civil catalán, sienta un precedente para
la creación de doctrina en un asunto que la Generalitat
pretende regular mediante la aprobación del Código
de Familia, que propone establecer la custodia compartida
como régimen preferente.
En el fallo, la sala civil y penal del TSJC desestima
el recurso presentado por un padre divorciado que reclamaba
la custodia compartida de sus dos hijos, con el argumento
de que este tribunal no es la instancia que debe decidir
sobre el fondo de la cuestión, a no ser que la
sentencia apelada fuera "irracional, ilógica
Sin embargo, el TSJC aprovecha la sentencia desestimatoria
para pronunciarse, por primera vez, sobre la custodia
compartida de los hijos, un régimen que, en su
opinión, presenta "indudables ventajas para
la evolución y desarrollo del niño en las
situaciones de conflicto familiar producido por la ruptura
Para el tribunal, que cita cuatro informes internacionales
sobre el efecto de las custodias compartidas en los menores,
dicho régimen evita la aparición de "conflictos
de lealtades" en los niños respecto a sus
padres, favorece la comunicación entre éstos
y permite ver la ruptura sin "vencedores y vencidos
ni culpables e inocentes".
< Otra de las ventajas que el TSJC ve en la custodia
compartida es que contribuye a concebir el reparto equilibrado

Dichas pensiones, de acuerdo con el tribunal, vendrían

Need Both Parents
Ronald E. Smith has passed
A message to all members of Children Need Both Parents
It is with an extremely sad heart that we announce Minister
Ronald E. Smtih passed away on September 5, 2008 from a
massive heart attack. Minister Smith was not only the Founder
of Children Need Both Parents, an author, and an advocate
but also a proud parent. We are all still recovering from
this unexpected news. However, a message from the family
will be posted very shortly.

well known saying. From the governments, and the children’s
‘The Best Interests of the Child’
Another well known statement from governments is:
‘Grandparents are very important in a child’s
Then why are grandparents not promoted as such? especially
when they and the children are usually the innocent damaged
party of family break ups. Do they encourage children’s
organisations to ensure that grandparents are still available
to them? No! They do not. Doing nothing does not encourage
parents to think of the harm to their own children. This
is totally irresponsible from organisations that say they
operate in a child’s best interest.
It cannot be denied that many a child has been rescued
from abuse and poverty by grandparents who are the biggest
carers of children in the world, often without payment
and always make sure children have all the essentials.
Who knows better what goes on in their family in the first
place and in a position to help if permitted?
But grandparent/grandchild’s legal contact is denied
every time by the governments of the UK, it is their attitude
that alienates that special person from children’s
Charter for Grandchildren was produced by the Scottish
Government as voluntary. The reply we get when quoted
is “we don’t need to use it” It needs
to be made legal to encourage organisations more to promote
the role of grandparents that they so often say are an
essential part of children’s lives. They should
be moving heaven and earth to use all the protection available
for the protection of our children today and not to do
so is criminal.

Newsletter Août 2008
Voici le premier numéro des Newsletters de GeCoBi.
Nous souhaitons dorénavant vous informer par ce
moyen des événements et des développements
de GeCoBi, et, bien entendu, de tout ce qui concerne l’introduction
de la coresponsabilité parentale. Nous aimerions
cependant nous arrêter également sur d’autres
thèmes concernant la parentalité et vous
faire part de nos réflexions. Nous vous souhaitons
beaucoup de plaisir à la lecture de ce premier
numéro des Newsletters de GeCoBi.
Les événements passés
L’Association suisse pour la coparentalité
(GeCoBi) a été créée le 13
mai 2008 en tant qu’association faîtière
nationale. Quinze organisations ont préparé
durant trois ans cette création, avec une proposition
de changement de loi en vue d’une coresponsabilité
parentale. Cette proposition a été adressée
et présentée à l’office fédéral
de Justice en juin 2007. Avec la manifestation
nationale pour la coparentalité du 17 mai 2008
sur la Place fédérale, GeCoBi a donné
un premier signe fort de son existence. Sur notre page
d’accueil, vous pourrez retrouver de nombreux témoignages,
les discours qui ont été prononcés
et les reflets qu’en a donné la presse nationale.
La création d’une association faîtière
d’organisations touchant à la parentalité
et ce, au niveau national, a été saluée
de toutes parts.
Et maintenant, le vif du sujet!
Durant les prochaines semaines, les prochains mois, ce
sera une étape capitale pour faire accepter notre
projet de loi pour une coresponsabilité parentale.
Nous menons ce combat depuis des années pour que
les deux parents jouissent des mêmes droits et surtout
pour que les enfants gardent l’accès à
leurs deux parents.
Même si l’introduction d’une coresponsabilité
parentale semble acceptée ici ou là, nous
devons exposer clairement de quoi il s’agit, car,
parmi les organisations, des notions très différentes
en sont retenues, et il y en a même qui préfèreraient
garder le statu quo. Si leurs notions correspondent plus
ou moins à une coparentalité, elles revêtent
une forme qui n’apporte rien. Notre projet de loi
va, au contraire, bien plus loin, car il ne demande pas
seulement une autorité parentale conjointe, mais
une coresponsabilité parentale. Cela signifie que
ce n’est pas seulement le partage de l’autorité
parentale qui est demandé, mais justement et surtout
le partage équitable des devoirs éducatifs
et de soins entre les deux parents.
Ce point de vue aurait l’avantage de décharger
les mères, souvent surchargées, d’impliquer
davantage la responsabilité des pères et,
surtout, d’offrir à l’enfant une relation
équilibrée à sa mère et à

plusieurs membres du comité se sont réunis

octobre 2008, le Département de Justice va soumettre
un projet de loi concernant l’autorité parentale
conjointe. en consultation. Nous espérons évidemment
que nos idées et propositions seront retenues.
Nous avons retravaillé et complété
nos arguments afin d’être mieux armés
Le 13 septembre 2008, GeCoBi organise une journée
de rencontre interne à Bienne. Les présidents
des différentes organisations y sont invités,
afin de cibler les buts à atteindre en 2009. Cette
journée sera également l’occasion
de mieux faire connaissance les uns avec les autres.
Vous le constatez, GeCoBi bouge !
