    Republicans Say No to VAWA!

    in Blogs

     
    As recently reported by SAVE, and editorialized by Phyllis Schlafly, On February 2, the reauthorization of the Violence Against Women Act (VAWA) passed out of the Senate Judiciary Committee.  That in itself is not remarkable. What is remarkable is that all eight Republicans voted “No” to the current Leahy version of the bill up for consideration.
    Schlafly was quick to pronounce that this admittedly thunderous moment was an indication that Washington Republicans were “no longer intimidated by feminist demands.”
    And she might be right. The typical leftist suspects are losing their minds. Both CNN and Huffpo are so bent out of shape that they are explicitly calling for the Obama administration to EMPLOY VIOLENCE against the republicans.
    If Schlafly is correct, then we can start icing down the champagne, because if either party really qualifies as being henceforth unfriendly to feminist governance we’re gonna throw a shindig, the likes of which has not been seen since, well, since people started throwing shindigs.
    But don’t get out your party poppers just yet.
    It is clear that this is a big one. Bigger than big. A straight party line vote against the feminist owned VAWA behemoth is a monstrosity of a change in the status quo, no matter what the reasons. But just like we do with everything else around here, we are going to dig through the politics and other poop and try to piece together what is really happening.
    We are doing our homework, folks. This ought to mean a very interesting episode of AVfM Radio. So be sure to tune in for yours truly, along with co-host JTO as we put the red pill analysis to this shocking turn of events.
    Heck, this show is so special we got a doctor there, just to take your phone calls. And that ain’t no campaign promise.  Tonight folks. Be there.

    Open Mic: Live VAWA Debate:

    in Women

    Are women being used as political footballs Again?
    BettyJean  is opening up the phone lines to women from all sides of the argument. What are they fighting about now? Let's debates both or all sides of this issue among ourselves come up with  what we want then tell those we elected to represent us to do the right thing about Violence against women. It is my understanding the intent of this bill is to protect women from violence PERIOD. Established in 1994 with bi-partisan support, it has been reaffirmed both in 2000 and again in 2005.  
    Remember - my Louisa had her brains blown out by a man who was out without bail after beating her dying sister Denise in the head with a claw hammer! He should have been in jail for attempted murder of her sister not loose on the streets to come back and take her head too! VAWA should not be a political football - 4 women a day are murdered, every 9 seconds a women is battered! We are more than partisan votes - we are women who deserve JUSTICE- stop this WAR on WOMEN
    Women are dying, beaten, raped while they play party politics with this football. This is not a game to the mothers of the fallen ! Please come to the show tonight and tell us what you think and how we can get them to stop the games and give us justice instead. They work for us- let's remind them of that- we are the Majority you know! Remember - or does this have to happen to you?

    DOMESTIC VIOLENCE AND THE LAW PART II

    in Culture

    Domestic violence is considered one of the most pressing issues in American society. Everyone quotes the statistics given by the National Coalition Against Domestic Violence: 1 in 4 women will be victims of domestic violence at some point in their lives, 1.3 million women are assaulted by their partner every year, 85% of domestic violence reported is against women. However, in a conflicting survey taken by the CDC in 2010, it was found that 40% of the victims of severe, physical domestic violence are men.


    The media and government focus the most attention on the female victims of domestic violence. Men are largely silent on the issue because of the perception that men are physically stronger and should be able to subdue a female attacker easily. Those men who do report physical violence are more likely to be ridiculed–both by law enforcement and by the public–than women are. 


    The Violence Against Women Act (VAWA) was the first major law to help government agencies and victim advocates work together to fight domestic violence, sexual assault, and other types of violence against women. It created new punishments for certain crimes and started programs to prevent violence and help victims. Over the years, the law has been expanded to provide more programs and services.

    Protection against Domestic Violence By Law Enforcement Agencies

    in Family

    Domestic violence is a term used to characterize a pattern of obvious and subtle hash and brash behaviors resulting into physical and psychological abuses between partners in any types of intimate relationships or other members in a household.  Domestic violence can be in a cumulative form of physical, emotional, verbal, economic and sexual abuse or any other type of control mechanism to coerce another individual perpetually. Consequences of domestic violence vary from anxiety, dismay, social disconnect, fragile mental state, tension, breakdown mental and unpredictable consequences such as illness, homicide or permanent disfigurement.


    In 1994, the US Congress passed the Violence Against Women Act ("VAWA"). This Act, and the 1996 additions to the Act, recognizes that domestic violence is a national crime and that federal laws can help an overburdened state and local criminal justice system. Available practical information in the US federal domestic violence laws and penalties and the rights of federal victims can be found here: Federal Domestic Violence Laws http://www.justice.gov/usao/gan/documents/federallaws.pdf


    This includes:


    How to report  domestic violence crime?


    What are the federal crimes and penalties?


    What qualifies as domestic violence misdemeanor?


    What is a a protection order?


    Who is an intimate partner?


    Can concerns be heard in federal court?


    What are Victim’s rights?


    Where and how to find help?


    Speakers include Chief Police Inspector Katarina Paulsson from Åmål Police in Sweden, and Police Investigator Karpla Karney from Pleebo Police in Liberia and NYPD representative from Domestic Violence Unit. We could sufficiently capture the framework for protection against domestic violence by spanning law enforcement policies across three continents, namely Africa, Europe, and America.
