The idea that the child has a right to financial support is not supported in any way. The only right children have under our community law is the freedom from abuse and from neglect (neglect is a recent liberal addition). There never was any obligation, let alone formula, of financial support to children or for any standard of living. The maternal welfare formulae are a fabrication of the Divorce Industry backed by the ‘apparatchiks’, the bureaucrats who run our governments. The only responsibility has been that that person who is in care of a child in whatever capacity (teacher, baby-sitter, Scout leader, parent etc.) does not abuse or neglect the child. These responsibilities include providing essential medical care, seeing the child receives some education, and keeping the child from harms way.
Assigning a ‘child’ (in fact the child’s mother) rights over his ex-father’s pay cheque is a gross violation of human rights. Children (or mother’s) in intact families have no such right and there is no standard of care which works that way. On the contrary, when the courts take a child from a parent and give the child to another person (in the absence of abuse or neglect) the fair and reasonable requirement on the court is to compensate the parent who loses the child (as well as compensating the child for loss of parent). That’s the only right involved – the right to a parent-child relationship, and that’s the fair and just and predictable response to the flesh trade in our children that is going on day-in-day-out in our family courts.
Sometimes things are worth repeating. In fact, worth repeating louder, more slowly, and often. Here’s a reprise of an earlier post.

It’s time to talk about the money
Let’s understand that even a small fraction of the money that men spend fighting in court would do immensely more if it were spent advocating in pubic. The question is how do you get the most bang for the buck (time and money)? Clearly, fathers should stop wasting their efforts on lawyers (and the family courts) and on politicians. Those people have to be seen as the opposition. Father advocates need to spend their time with their comrades, the men and women (relatives and friends like Grandparents, sisters, second wives, etc) that have been hurt or could be hurt by the intolerable situation of fathers and children in family court today. Unfortunately most of those people do not understand the problem they are caught up in. Consequently they play into the hands of the opposition.
The only way men will get their kids back is when they get their money back. As long as there is money to be made from fathers the problem will continue. We need to fight so-called ‘child support’ — the ex-father shakedown — so we can give our children the kind of child support they really need — their fathers. Ex-fathers need to stop being ashamed to talk about the money and start to point out that it was the mothers who wanted the kids but would not accept the responsibility that goes with them — the financial responsibility that goes with raising a family.
What do I think of Family-Court justice? I think it would be a very good idea.*
To have justice in family court we have to get rid of the meddling morons who suddenly think they have to decide if a father should parent his child just because he is no longer living with the child’s mother. We will get justice in family court when we stop the impossible task of trying to figure out who is the only parent that could possibly be in the child’s best interest and instead we start letting fathers parent their children. Let us recognize that there are not too many fathers parenting their children. Simply stated, we will have justice in family court when we get misandric family courts out of the lives of families and put equal parenting in the lives of our children.

Here’s the “benefit” to the nation of the US Federal Child Support Program, in their own words: “The child support program can increase child support payments by positively engaging with fathers early on, encouraging fathers to be more involved in their children’s lives, and helping them overcome obstacles to supporting their children—reducing the likelihood that they will build up child support debt. “ The sanctimonious Child Support Program is not a program of engaging fathers from birth. Rather, it is a program of enslaving fathers from birth. The entire purpose of the program is to steal money from men for women using the facade of child care when in fact it is to cover for the governments’ own irresponsible and unconscionable treatment of fathers and children..
While the father is considered responsible for paying the mother to look after the child, the mother has no responsibility for an unwanted child. She can unload the child at any point including (of course) aborting, then, after birth, giving the child up for adoption and even literally dumping the child in a drop off provided by the State (in some States). The ex-father however, is strong-armed by the government into paying regardless.
Claiming the Program provides engagement for the fathers with the children is mean spirited patronizing of the victims of the Program. Perfectly good fathers are denied any meaningful parental role with their child while being browbeaten by the charade of the family courts and bullied into paying to support the mothers’ lifestyle.
Just to be sure there is no doubt about who is the target of this program notice that there is no use of the generic “parent’ or any issue with mothers paying child support even thought they are occasionally required by court order to do so. This is undoubtedly a program of misandry, a hate program directed at men, by the governments and their family courts.
Good women everywhere should be concerned about the enslavement of their sons and brothers and uncles and other male relatives as well as their males friends and associates.
The ‘United Civil Rights Councils of America’ are on the right track – a tight focus on fighting family courts in the USA. Their understanding of the significance of the attack on the family gives confidence that that central focus will not be lost. However, it’s critical that we all understand that those victims to whom they refer are almost exclusively fathers (and their children). Ignoring the systemic, historical and present misandry in the system can hardly lead to any justice that meets the needs of the victims. Justice has been denied fathers and it must now be restored to those fathers. (This is not to deny justice to the other victims, mostly mothers hit by “friendly fire’ in the family courts.) Separated fathers need restoration of their families, their finances, and their dignity. Justice demands it.

“Where are we? Everywhere: Put simply, unchecked governmental tyranny has now afflicted most of America. Over 25 million so-called “noncustodial” parents as direct victims… 3000 helpless children removed from their loving families every week by the child “protective” services, 9/10ths of them unlawfully began in one way or another, and 1 of those removed children dying in foster care every hour… that’s every hour… Countless victims of legal plundering within our senior citizens… The list of flagrant due process and civil rights violations is dwarfed only by the number of American families directly affected by their atrocities. We are everywhere… Oh, and, by the way, even when you count all of the governmental personnel involved in these numerous horrors, we – the victims and their families – outnumber, and can outshout, outpaper, and outvote, all those government people put together, by at least a factor of 1000 to 1, if not much more…”
