"H.R. 4678 also must be opposed as it furthers the intrusion of the federal government into family life through the use of federal funds to support 'fatherhood programs.' Mr. Speaker, the federal government is neither constitutionally authorized nor institutionally competent to promote responsible fatherhood. 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.

After your children have been kidnapped or lost in a custody battle, through no fault of your own, to a violent batterer and/or sexual predator who are you going to call? Law enforcement, the Governor, state Attorney General, the FBI, United States State Department, the Department of Justice? Maybe you might file a lawsuit in state or federal court only to have it dismissed by disreputable judges such as federal Judge Julie Carnes.
Soon you find what others who have gone before you know, that there is no remedy, no one in government who cares and even worse, officials profit from your children's misery by paying lip service to complaints and maintaining the child abuse status quo.
Faye Yager, founder of Children of the Underground, lauded as the saintly savior of sexually abused children on day-time talk shows and prime-time news, in reality works with fathers' rights lawyers and politicians whose private agenda is to make a lot of money and protect pedophiles.
In April 1999, Faye and Howard Yager entered into a Confidential Settlement Agreement with Bipin Shah to use her "best efforts" to find his children in exchange for his $2M. According to sources, this wasn't the first time Faye turned in children for ransom, and it won't be the last.

The proposal also called for Shah to reimburse Yager for travel expenses incurred to find his children, Bunch said.

Faye's Deposition, under construction
A Brick Wall, By Stan DeCoster - Jacquie Glassenberg/The Day, Jeffrey Rubenstein's son, Randy, was abducted by his wife and Faye Yager into the Children of the Underground three years ago. Yager fabricated allegations of abuse by sending Bonnie to a hired-gun psychologist. Despite federal and private investigations, and Faye's enormous political clout with The Clinton Administration and U.S. Sen. Zell Miller, no solid leads have emerged on the boy's whereabouts.
Yager, Her Ilk Are No Friends To Children, Day Staff Columnist, “What I saw looked misguided and cruel. But for an informed opinion, I took the tape to experts in child abuse, who provided a list of do's and don'ts when interviewing a child. Among the major don'ts: Prompting. Threatening. Lying. Suffice it to say that Yager and Rubenstein did them all.”
