Kim Cheezum Prays for Chick-fil-A as My Father Starves to Death

November 27, 2019

This post briefly marvels at the callous indifference of people who support lies that tear lives apart. For the benefit of the reader, the subject of this post, Kim Cheezum, wife of Presbyterian pastor Jeremy Cheezum, is the sister of a man, Phil Bredfelt, who, in conjunction with his wife, serially prosecuted the writer from […]

Tim Hargis, Father of My False Accuser of 11 Years, Retires from Banking to “Spend More Time on His Cattle Farms”

September 3, 2019

♫ “I’m an old cowhand, from the Rio Grande, but my legs ain’t bowed, and my cheeks ain’t tanned….” ♫ Tim Hargis, father of my false accuser of over a decade, apparently retired from his post as a Springdale, Arkansas First Security Bank vice president in July. My attention was otherwise occupied, which would probably […]

Jeremy Cheezum Is Unworthy of Dads of Great Students

August 29, 2019

0

A Presbyterian minister referenced in the last post, Jeremy Cheezum, has urged the institution of a parent-child scholastic program called Watch D.O.G.S. (“Watch Dads of Great Students”) at Pomona Elementary School in Montrose, Colorado, which his children attend. One of the program’s stated aims is to heighten the safety of kids by encouraging the presence […]

There Are No “Sides” to a Story That’s BS: How Restraining Order Policy Turns Lies into Realities

April 13, 2018

1

A mathematician would dismissively tell you that you can’t describe one-half of zero. The project is absurd. Yet civil courts, as a matter of policy, demand that defendants perform this nonsensical exercise every day. This advice about telling “your side of the story about what happened” is offered by the California Court System, and it presumes […]

Singer-Songwriter Kat McSnatch Knows How You Feel (“Can She Say That? Can I?”)

April 12, 2018

1

The angry speech of people who’ve been falsely accused in one or another legal procedure and labeled freakish, scary, or violent is often highlighted to imply that because they use “bad words,” they must be bad people whose claims of injustice aren’t worthy of consideration. Such people have been wrongly deprived of some or all of the […]

What Massachusetts Law Firm Dane Shulman Associates Says about Restraining Order Abuse and Divorce

March 31, 2018

0

Below is Massachusetts law firm Dane Shulman Associates writing about the game of false accusation. Lawyers know this happens. They know it very well. Various feminist advocates doggedly assert that restraining order abuse, particularly to gain leverage in family court, is insignificant—or worse, that claims of it are merely men’s rights propaganda—and such assertions are […]

Most False Restraining Orders against Feminists Who Abuse Children Work

March 23, 2018

0

If you’re not sure what the title means, that’s the point. It’s satirical and intended to emphasize that if you falsely accuse someone of abusing a child and the accusation sticks, there’s about a 100% probability that the restraining order will work to deter future abuse of that child by the falsely accused person who never abused the child […]

A Response to Sandra Newman’s Claim That “False Rape Accusations Almost Never Have Serious Consequences”

July 20, 2017

1

“Critics argue that reports of rape should be treated with more caution, since men’s lives are so often ruined by women’s malicious lies. “But my research—including academic studies, journalistic accounts, and cases recorded in the US National Registry of Exonerations—suggests that every part of this narrative is wrong.” —Sandra Newman, Quartz (May 11, 2017) The […]

Midlife Madness and Restraining Order Abuse

“Of the 760 women approached [of menopausal age], 539 (71 %) returned completed questionnaires. A total of 155 women (29%) had a score of 12 or more on the general health questionnaire and were identified as probable psychiatric cases.” —C. Barbara Ballinger, British Medical Journal (1975) Translation: About every fourth woman you meet “of a […]

What Can Be Done with Public Records, Like Restraining Orders, Arrests, and Convictions: A Tutorial for Judges and Everyone Who’s Been Lied about to One

January 3, 2016

Court records are available for public consumption, freely or for a few dollars, besides people’s home addresses, telephone numbers, birth dates and ages, work histories, list of associates and family members, etc. Men and women falsely targeted for blame in drive-thru court procedures may be fined or jailed for airing information about their accusers’ conduct […]

Another Way False Testimony Is Concealed: The Unconstitutional “Prior Restraint”

November 13, 2015

7

Courts are properly authorized to sanction acts of defamation—publicly lying about someone—but they’re not authorized to prohibit truthful speech or opinion (even if it’s negative), and they’re not authorized to prohibit speech acts before they’ve even been committed. An order of the court that prohibits future speech is called a prior restraint, and it’s unconstitutional […]

Litigation Privilege: Why Restraining Order Fraud Is Pandered to and Why the Falsely Accused Are Denied Recourse to the Law for Vindication, Relief, and Recovery of Damages

October 21, 2015

“Fraud is deliberately deceiving someone else [including a judge] with the intent of causing damage.” —Cornell Legal Information Institute “Generally, lying during trial (or any other part of litigation) is expected to come out at the time of trial. This means an action against someone for lying during a prior proceeding would fail because even […]

Understanding the Significance of False Accusations in Restraining Order and Related “Trials”

September 23, 2015

4

Misperception of the significance of false accusations is a topic that’s been considered in past posts on this blog, particularly false accusations of sexual assault, which are the only false accusations anyone seems to believe are deserving of mention. It’s wrong to say that the nature of false accusations doesn’t matter. But more relevant to […]

A Consideration of Attorney Gregory Hession’s “How to Fight a False Allegation Restraining Order”

August 15, 2015

“In thousands of 10-minute hearings held all over the Commonwealth, judges are now able to do what the Marxists have only dreamed of doing before now, and could never hope to do before they were able to use the pretext of ‘domestic violence.’ However, the real violence is almost always to the rights of the […]

That They’re Made in Civil Court, Too: A Response to Megan McArdle’s “What We Don’t Know about False Claims of Rape”

June 18, 2015

3

“Could the number be between 3 and 8 percent? Absolutely. But it could be substantially higher than 8 percent; it could even be that 40 percent of rape accusations or more are false, though I’d bet against that. It’s possible that less than 3 percent of rape accusations are false, though again, I would offer […]

Low and Outside: An Umpire’s Story of Restraining Order Abuse (by an Underhand Screwball)

June 6, 2015

12

The common assumption—one that’s been vigorously enforced by advocates of the “abuse industry”—is that restraining orders are used to protect “victims” from “abusers.” So-called abusers are represented as violent husbands or boyfriends, or as stalkers, representations that account for the ubiquity of restraining orders and the ease of their procurement. The man whose story of […]

What “the Law” Means in the Restraining Order Arena and Why All Reasonable Expectations Defendants Have Are Wrong, Wrong, Wrong

May 31, 2015

“I put a restraining order on my ex-husband. Now he’s depressed and staying in his truck.” “Can a restraining order result in suicide?” “Get [a] restraining order lifted for job.” “Can a restraining order be appealed if there isn’t evidence?” “How will it affect my child custody if I filed a false order for protection?” […]

You Don’t Want to “Be a Part of It”: Commentary on New York’s Protection Order Biz

May 21, 2015

0

I corresponded with a man last year, a man in a homosexual relationship, who was assaulted by his partner severely enough to require the ministrations of a surgeon. His boyfriend was issued a restraining order coincident to his being charged with assault. That’s how it typically works in New York: A protection order is issued following […]

The Question of “Angry White Men” and Complaints of Procedural Abuse

May 19, 2015

7

I started to include the contents of this post in the last one, “Why More Falsely Accused Don’t Speak Out.” Then I thought the topic of angry white men might be due some room of its own. The previous post outlined reasons why men and women who’ve been victimized by false accusations and procedural abuse are subdued from voicing their […]

Why More Falsely Accused Don’t Speak Out

May 17, 2015

9

If procedural abuses are epidemic (and they are), why do so few vociferously complain? Why isn’t the Internet inundated with personal horror stories (and why aren’t state representatives’ in-boxes choked with them)? We purportedly enjoy the privilege of free speech, so why isn’t it exercised more? The absence of rampant complaints of procedural abuse is misleading. Limitation […]

In Its Condemnation of the Men’s and Fathers’ Rights Movements, the Southern Poverty Law Center Has Institutionalized Bigotry and Hate (Including Racial Bigotry and Hate)—Here’s How

April 29, 2015

There are prominent voices on the Internet, in the ivory tower, and in the press that disparage the plaints of fathers who are alienated from their children by lies and legal abuse, and denied roles in their kids’ lives. They call these fathers’ ventilations of despair and anger “misogynist,” and they look no further. This […]

The “Nightmare” Neil Shelton Has Lived for Three Years and Is Still Living: A Father’s Story of Restraining Order Abuse

April 24, 2015

The following account is reported by North Carolinian Neil Shelton, a father denied access to his son and daughter for “three years now and counting.” In his account, Mr. Shelton alleges that his sister, in collusion with his ex-wife, lied to have him involuntarily committed, and that one or more partners in the law firm of his ex-wife’s […]

Misperception of the Damages of False Accusation Isn’t a Girls-Only Fault

April 19, 2015

“What the fuck is wrong with these people? I keep seeing the same argument again and again and again and again—the idea that being accused of rape is not simply as bad as being raped but often worse. I honestly can’t believe how people can be so fucking dense so as to think this is […]

False Accusations and Murder: More Headlines about the Effects of Finger-Pointing and Legal Abuse

April 18, 2015

“[W]hy would someone lie about being sexually assaulted? What could be gained from that? Nothing, really.” —Tracie Egan Morrissey, Jezebel (Feb. 28, 2014) The quotation above derives from a piece titled, “Rape, Lies and the Internet: The Story of Conor Oberst and His Accuser.” It’s spotlighted because it echoes the sentiment expressed by the writer of […]

False Accusations and Suicide: Some Headlines about the Effects of Finger-Pointing and Legal Abuse (Culled for the Empathically Challenged)

One of the stories highlighted below concerns a young man who was falsely labeled a rapist by some bullies at school. He hanged himself. He was 16. Another concerns a man who spent a year and a half in prison based on a false accusation of sexual assault (among other false accusations). While the man was […]
