The following are some of the many news stories and official reports, which expose and discredited the PAS custody switching tactics by judges and court professionals from states coast-to-coast. (Many of these articles are also included in the First Step Section above)
Read articles by Liz Richards (NAFCJ founder) published n the Washington Times which discredits the fathers rights and their anti-mother tactics.
April 2008 Washington Times "Parental Rights and Wrongs"
April 2006 Washington Times "The Other Side of the Fathers rights..."
Judith Reisman, long-time obscenity and sexual deviancy researcher, and NAFCJ supporter since 1996, has written several articles for WorldNet Daily exposing fathers rights ally, Richard Gardner & PAS as being pro-pedophilia. This April 1999 article refers to NAFCJ leaders Liz Richards and Jan Barstow
N.O.W. President Kim Gandy says Richard Gardner's PAS is a "Sick
Reality" against women in her May 2007 article
The Leadership Council, founded by Baltimore, Maryland based psychologist, Joy Silberg, has issued several reports discrediting the PAS custody tactics which are frequently used in courts against mothers who make good-faith abuse complaints against her child's father.
The most compelling Leadership report was done by Stephanie Dallam, who uses Richard Gardner's own published words to expose him as a pervert trying to justify deviant sex with children. Another Leadership Council, professional, Robert A. Geffner, who conducts annual conferences in San Diego, CA, has written extensively against the widespread court practices harmful to family abuse victims.
Albany, New York Professor, Dr. Maureen Therese Hannah, sponsors a Battered Mothers Custody Conference each January which includes many of the prominent professionals who are very critical of the widespread practice of many courts and social services in discrediting abuse complaints made by mother complaining about domestic violence and child abuse by fathers.
New York State advocacy group Stop Family Violence also works to exposing court injustices
Garland Waller, a
Boston communications professor, has made documentaries exposing the
injustices by the court against victimized mothers and their children.
NAFCJ Accomplishments & Members in the News
Learn what we are doing to stop the anti-protective mother court problems and how you can stop the problems in your court and your case.
NAFCJ activists are dedicated to creating synergy and power through networking and lobbying for change for those caught up in the vast web of custody corruption involving such court chicanery as political pork barrel cronyism, guardian ad-litem kickbacks, fraudulent psychological testing by GAL appointed evaluators and local Bar Associations who run MCLE seminars with judges (Mandatory Continuing Legal Education) concealing contributions "coffee and flower" slush funds through County Court Judicial Associations.
In their lust for power and control, these bad dads have reaped a plethora of praise and manna from federal heaven through DHHS (Access/Visitation programs, DOJ (Arbitration/Mediation) programs, Responsible Fatherhood Programs, Co-Parenting Programs, and other mislabeled Court-Based federally sponsored “Family Services.”
Considering that the recipients of the bulk of the money goes to pay well-off guys who spend most of their time recruiting new members for their custody switching scheme and lobbying legislators for presumptive joint custody (the demise of child support enforcement for all time) and easing restrictions on incest and family violence -- this sinister "snake oil" has more to do with power, lust and money than their insincere pretense for the best interests of children.
Open Letter to the Fatherhood
Movement, Liz Richards' challenge to Fathers' Rights
Leadership to admit their true agenda.
Read Liz Richards' Letter to Ron Haskins, former staff director for the House Ways & Means Subcommittee [which has jurisdiction over a wide variety of family programs] and a co-founding Children's Rights Council official, misused his Congressional authority to write into legislation, programs and policies which benefit Fathers Rights membership while concealing his own conflict of interest.
Liz Richards lobbied leading Congressional offices about Haskins misdeeds and conflicts of interest. Within months, Haskins quit and is now with the Brookings Institute. Now his protégé and CRC supporter, Wade Horn, has been installed as Assistant Secretary of HHS, in charge of all DHHS “Family Programs.” See Liz Richards’s letter to Horn, as NFI President, charging him with being a CRC front.
CRC and the Fatherhood Initiative hype claims of educating dead-beat dads how to be "responsible" in exchange for providing federally funded assistance to enforce their visitation rights through programs including the "access/visitation" program and Responsible Fatherhood programs which is nothing but disingenuous drivel, a bogus cover story for their real agenda of switching custody and giving legal advantages to fathers willing to instigate litigation for their judicial kick-back scheme.
While fatherhood organizations publicly cry wolf about mass victimization of fathers by "biased" pro-mother courts, they conceal their affiliation and business ties with the very judges who are hearing their domestic cases. The href="http://www.afccnet.org/about/history.asp> history page describes in detail their wide influence in family court proceedings. Meyer Elkin, co-founder of AFCC, was also a CRC co-founder. Both organizations are heavily cross-affiliated. The AFCC runs front companies which develop, implement and evaluate federal facade programs allegedly assisting troubled families and children, which is how they hide that men are frequent winners in all forms of domestic litigation, such as getting child support forgiven and reduced, getting family abuse charges thrown out, and getting sole custody - frequently by ex-parte orders, of children (including infants) with no more wrong doing against the mother than being labeled angry or emotional.
For further information on how federally funded programs impact individual cases, please contact Liz Richards by e-mail or by phone [if by phone, please call in the evening] at LIZGOAL@aol.com or 703-658-3543.

"But Gallagher failed to mention that she had a $21,500 contract with the Department of Health and Human Services to help promote the president's proposal. Her work under the contract, which ran from January through October 2002, included drafting a magazine article for the HHS official overseeing the initiative, writing brochures for the program and conducting a briefing for department officials.

OFFICIAL RECOGNITION OF
RETALIATED PROTECTIVE MOTHER PROBLEM
CA NOW has formed a statewide Family Law Task Force to investigate and reform corruption and gender bias in the courts.
National Council of Juvenile and Family Court Judges [anti-PAS] Guide, "The discredited "diagnosis" of "PAS" (or allegation of "parental alienation"), quite apart from its scientific invalidity, inappropriately asks the court to assume that the children's behaviors and attitudes toward the parent who claims to be "alienated" have no grounding in reality. It also diverts attention away from the behaviors of the abusive parent, who may have directly influenced the children's responses by acting in violent, disrespectful, intimidating, humiliating and/or discrediting ways toward the children themselves, or the children's other parent. "
American Judges Association Studies show batterers convince authorities that the victim is unfit, undeserving of sole custody in approximately 70% of challenged cases and that in approximately one-half of abusive families, some form of physical and/or sexual abuse of children exists.
Model Code of the Family Violence Project, National Council of Juvenile and Family Court Judges (NCFCJ, 1998) "rebuttable presumption that it is detrimental to the child, not in the best interest of the child to be placed in sole custody, joint legal custody, or joint physical custody with the perpetrator of family violence"

In fact, by leveling taxes on responsible parents to provide special programs for irresponsible parents the federal government is punishing responsible fathers!"

MORE Fathers Rights -- BAD DADS & CORRUPT COURT CRONIES
Children's Rights Council, Formed in 1985 in Washington, DC, definitely the kingpin in the fatherhood movement, closely tied to other leading groups such as ACFC and NCFC. While they claim to only work for benign goals such as presumptive joint custody, they are really ring-leaders for a bad-dad's custody scheme which involves scaring divorcing men into believing that system is rigged for women, then luring them into joining one of their locally affiliated groups, getting them to pay up front money to one of the AFCC affiliated attorneys in a custody switching program. Dad's attorney fees and other expenses are paid back with federal fatherhood program money after the deal is done. CRC also runs programs to educate judges, lawyers and court evaluators on Richard Gardner's incest friendly Parental Alienation Syndrome and anti-protective parent bashing.

Anneewakee, a survivor of a state supported sodomy school for troubled youth speaks out. State officials started receiving complaints that Louis Poetter was molesting teens as early as 1969, but did nothing to stop him. Jimmy Carter placed Poetter's best friend, Jim Parham, in charge of revamping the watch dog agency, DFACS, that was supposed to oversee Poetter's daily operations. In 1986 Poetter, who received assistance from state officials, including former Sen. Zell Miller, pleaded guilty to a 3-decade long sodomy fest. Recently, he appealed his sodomy conviction and won, after the Georgia Supremes ruled it unconstitutional. Will the Supremes rule in his favor so he can continue absconding with little boys to his Mexican properties?
