California Safe Child Coalition: Children Should Maintain a Relationship with Abusers

The California Safe Child Coalition Believes Children Should “Maintain a Relationship” with an Abusive Parent… Is this What the Mother’s Movement Stands For?

The point of this article is not debate the merits of supervised visitation but to point out the conflicting messages of some of the leaders in the Mother’s Movement; that, on one hand, say children should be protected from an abuser, even to remove all contact with that parent  and, on the other hand, say an abusing parent deserves a relationship with the child they have harmed—and this relationship should be fostered, and encouraged to grow in supervised visitation (which will lead to unsupervised visits, and likely the alleged abuser will gain custody). SO what does the Mother’s Movement really believe?

 Quote:The California Safe Child Coalition works with national, state and local government agencies, private organizations and individuals to keep children safe.

We seek a massive culture shift in the California court system. We strive to endure that children remain safe in the custody of protective parents, while maintaining relationships with their abusing parents through court-ordered supervised visitation”. This includes parents who have sexually abused children.

 

WHO IS THE CALIFORNIA SAFE CHILD COALITION?

The California Safe Child Coalition is compromised of some of the largest organizations leading the Mother’s Movement today; many who have appeared at the Battered Mothers Custody Conference (BMCC).

THE CONTRADICTION: QUOTES FROM THOSE IN THE MOTHER’S MOVEMENT AGAINST SUPERVISED VISITATION BETWEEN A CHILD & AN ALLEGED ABUSER

These statements from advocates and mothers in the Mother’s Movement directly challenge California Safe Child Coalition’s statement that abusive parents deserve a relationship with the children they have abused, and that relationship should be fostered in supervised visitation.  Keep in mind, the purpose of supervised visitation is temporary, and almost always results in unsupervised visitation, and increased custody.

Many of these leaders/advocates/mothers believe that a child who has been abused will be at risk for further abuse if they continue to have a relationship with a parent who has harmed them in the past, and that placing a child in supervised visitation with an abuser is traumatic. Many of these voices come from mothers who have been through the family court system, have dealt with supervised visitation, and witnessed its failures.

So who is the California Safe Child Coalition fighting for, and why??

From Barry GoldsteinWe have seen repeatedly that courts create an urgency to restore normal visitation to fathers even in the face of serious safety risks…The(re is) disparity in how supervised visitation is handled between mothers and fathers…the courts that couldn’t wait to resume visitation with a dangerous father are willing to delay years before resuming normal visitation with a safe mother…”

And, “Instead of pressuring mothers to cooperate with their abusers they can be using their power and authority to require him to stop his abuse if he wants to have a relationship with the children. It is important for legislators and court professionals to understand that children do not need both parents equally. They need the safe parent more than the abusive one and their primary attachment figure more than their other parent. ..” “The Broken Court System: Is There Reason for Hope?” by Barry Goldstein: http://www.barrygoldstein.net/important-articles

 

From “Family Court Matters” : FCM posted an article on corruption and greed within the supervised visitation provider network, many of their comments also seem applicable to California Safe Child Coalition.. “Why, becomes the question, would an anti-domestic violence (“End Domestic Violence” indicates they want it to stop) be collaborating with the infamous Supervised Visitation Field, which is known to spring out of the father’s rights and welfare reform fountain?”

 

And,Again, I have to ask, how could such a well-known (in the field) group go for so long absent any corporate existence? Not registered with the State of California to do business in California–but it sure looks like they are consistently billing and being paid to do business in California….” “Good Cause to Eliminate (Funding for): Access Visitation, Supervised Visitation, and Batterer’s Intervention, PERIOD!” http://familycourtmatters.wordpress.com/2013/11/29/good-cause-to-eliminate-funding-for-access-visitation-supervised-visitation-and-batterers-intervention-period/

From The Liz Library: “Supervised visitation cannot continue indefinitely, and controlling, violent, or child molesting parents aren’t going to change. So what is the point? ….

It’s a band-aid for 10 weeks, or 6 months, or whatever, and then the abusive parent will most likely go back to court, after behaving “safely” or “nicely” in the presence of supervisors, and get unsupervised visitation. The supervised visitation center will have made money, the parents will have lost money, the litigation will have remained open, the abusive parent will be even more angry and resentful, additional therapies and interventions will be recommended and tried (all as the abuse fades into the past and claimed irrelevancy), and overall, the entire situation will be even more miserable than it was before for the victims.” — The Liz Library, “Endless $tupidity: domestic violence victim advocacy for supervised visitation centers (Endless stupidity or professional self-interest–there’s no other choice.)” http://www.thelizlibrary.org/site-index/site-index-frame.html#soulhttp://www.thelizlibrary.org/supervised-visitation/supervised-visitation-stupidity.html

National Safe Child Coalition: Posted an article on August 12, 2103 about a man who killed his child during supervised visitation to spite his ex. NSCC followed with these thoughts, “They have dangerous people ordered into supervised visitation at the YMCA while protective parents who pose no threat are ordered into prison like rooms for supervised visitation with their children.”

KATHLEEN RUSSELL AND CJE’S MONEY TRAIL INVESTIGATED BY FAMILYLAWCOURTS.COM: WHAT TAX RETURNS REVEAL

Source: http://www.familylawcourts.com/non_profits.html

Family Law Courts is investigating “DV advocates who don’t want to see women empowered” and they claim most advocates are corrupt, and in the business to make a profit, not help victims of abuse. 

Family Law Courts has investigated a number of individuals and non-profits including Kathleen Russell of The Center for Judicial Excellence (CJE) aka “The Center”. Kathleen Russell is an unmarried woman with no children who is the co-founder and staff consultant at CJE. Why? Family Law Courts has pulled Russell’s tax records and raised allegations that CJE is just another money making organization within the family court system, similar to what protective mothers are fighting against.

Quote: (2008) “Tax records reveal in one year the Center for Judicial Excellence accepted grants and donations in the amount of $215,052.00 (Line “L”). Of that amount (Line 13) $187,000 went to outside sources. The source?

Page 4, Line 151. Kathleen Russell Consulting.”

That’s means 86% of grants and donations to CJE went directly to Kathleen Russell Consulting.

From 2006-2010, CJE took in $922,323 dollars in grants and contributions, if 86% were paid to Kathleen Russell Consulting that would earn her  $793,198 in 4 years. OR $198,299 dollars a year. With that large amount of money, you would hope to see a more substantial change in family court–not a solution that fosters a relationship between a child and an abuser, and throws the family back into the troubled family court system. 

EVEN CLAUDINE DOMBROWSKI ADMITS: IT’S AL ABOUT THE $$ MONEY $$

Is it so far-fetched that the domestic violence advocates and leaders would compromise their stated goals to protect women and children to make a profit?

One more screen shot to consider…

This was taken from Barry Goldstein’s wall, keep in mind Barry is a former attorney who was disbarred after mishandling money belonging to a non-profit organization. Here Barry is begging his supporters “to contact local dv groups, colleges, and other other organizations that could sponsor (PAY) a program for me to speak at.”

Like Kathleen, Barry works as a speaker and consultant. What is a consultant? Someone who can give advice or share ideas about family court, domestic violence and related issues without a law license; and make a profit from speaking, public engagements, writing books, etc.

Claudine Dombrowski responds with this interesting comment,”Yo gf I’m awake. Eyes wide open 20 yrs. I also know that in the communities the heart people not all enjoy this you use what you can get it in any way you can. Through anyone you can.

It’s your choice. Try to balance like the dv orgs do (there funding is 3/4 fr tagged), or push the truth the common sense. Or…you can keep preaching to the choir… Put it where it needs to be.

 

Claudine Dombrowski: “Get it in any way you can”

Keep asking questions, and be open to uncovering the truth….

Breaking News: Unprotective Mother & Killer Melanie Smith, UK

Is Unprotective Mother and Convicted Killer Melanie Smith (UK) connected to UN Mothers and the American Mothers Political Party (AMPP)??

 

BREAKING NEWS: Bill Windsor, Lawless America, has been suspended from Facebook for posting a picture of an unknown woman, who he suspects is part of the gang of “Joeys” who has been stalking and harassing him. Bill posted this photo to ask for help in identifying this woman, and to give her a chance to either retract her remarks or state she did not participate in the online attacks and defamation.

Abusers Win Custody: Melanie Smith won custody of three children after a divorce. She is accused of abusing, neglecting and torturing her children. Melanie could not handle caring for the children and dumped them in foster care one day after winning custody. The Court reversed its decision, apologized, and gave the father custody. Melanie’s children say that she is “the most evil woman in Britain”.

 

ATW finds it curious that Australian Mothers Political Party is now defunct, and basically has no activity except the lone wolf stalking and online harassment by Claudine and a few members.

DO YOU KNOW THIS AUSTRALIAN WOMAN?

I have been provided with information this evening to indicate this is Melanie Smith also known as Mel, the head of the Australian Mothers Political Party and one of the ringleaders of the American Mothers Political Party, working with Claudine Dumbrowski, Loraine Tipton, and Jennifer Herbert.

I believe Melanie lives in Townsville, Queensland, Australia. I need a full street address for the police and a phone number and email, if possible. She may be in a relationship with Mal Hamilton, a tour guide with Tropicana Guided Adventure Company and a member of a band named “The Wee Johnny’s.”

Please email any information to me at nobodies@att.net

I have been too busy with real work for Lawless America to file my Criminal Warrant Applications against these women, but I hope to fill in a few blanks and have them ready to file tomorrow.

The children of Melanie Smith call her “the most evil woman in Britain”, for how she viciously abused and then abandoned them, and express grief for the victims she burned to death. Ex-husband Paul Smith also recalls Melanie’s abuse and neglect of the children.

 

Paul met Melanie at Pontins near Prestatyn where she was working as a chambermaid. They married in 1987. Melanie gave birth to three children within the next 4 years—Lisa, Charlotte and Jonathon. Paul said Melanie “lacked maternal instinct” and resented being tied down by motherhood, she preferred to drink and party. After the birth of their first child, Paul says he “was excited to be a dad” but Melanie did not want Lisa around her. Melanie also resented her second daughter, according to Paul, “because she was not a boy”. Melanie was excited when her son was born then fell back into drinking, leaving Paul with most of the responsibility to care for the three young children. Paul eventually had to quit his job to care for the children full-time because of Melanie’s instability, and inability to provide for the children. 

 

Lisa, Charlotte and Jonathon have come forward to publicly speak about their mother, revealing how she burned them with cigarettes, poured boiling water over them and locked them in a tiny cupboard. She also chopped off their hair if they “made too much noise”. Ex-husband Paul Smith says that Melanie abused and neglected the children, and showed no maternal instinct, and instead preferred to party and drink. Paul says he saw bruises on the children, that they were not fed and their diapers were not changed while the children were in Melanie’s care.

Paul noticed that Melanie’s heavy drinking resulted in more abuse of the children; when he noticed marks or bruises, Melanie always had an excuse. Paul said sometimes he came home to find the children alone, wet, hungry and crying—Melanie was asleep or passed out. Then Paul discovered Melanie in bed with another man, the children locked in another room so she could have sex, and decided to file for divorce.

Despite the abuse and neglect, after their divorce, Melanie won custody of the children. After being awarded custody, Melanie could not handle caring for the children, and a day later, abandoned the children ages 3, 2, and 9 months into voluntary foster care. The court later reversed its decision, apologized, and awarded Paul sole custody, the children have thrived in his care and fought to forget their mother, though scars still linger.

 

Paul Smith told the UK Mirror, “I picked them up from emergency foster parents. They looked so scared my heart broke. If I hadn’t lived through it, I wouldn’t believe a mother was capable of such cruelty towards her own kids. It’s the same cruelty that has now taken the lives of those poor victims in the fire. She should rot in jail until the day she dies.”

 

Her daughter Charlotte, now 23, told the Sunday Mirror: “We all wish she was dead. Knowing that the evil woman who killed that poor family is our mother is almost impossible to bear. Dad rescued us from hell. He’s brought us all up without her but now she’s back in our lives in the most horrific way imaginable. She’s been dead to us since we were tiny. Now I just want her to rot in hell.”

Melanie never tried to see or contact her children. The next time they would see their mother would be on TV, arrested after killing 5 people in a fire she set.

MELANIE SMITH SETS FIRE, KILLS FAMILY IN A JEALOUS RAGE

Fire Set in Communal Hallway by Melanie Smith who Escaped out a Window and Watched the Flat Burn (Daily Mail)

At the time of the fire, Melanie Smith was unemployed and a heavy drinker. She had been kicked out of several pubs due to her outrageous behavior. Melanie was also reported to be an obsessively neat, so bad that she had to seek therapy. Melanie closely guarded her boyfriend Steven Clarkson with intense jealously that had caused her, in August, to vandalize his car, and attempt to set it on fire. Melanie had made several threats to start fires before the killing.

On October 19, 2012, Melanie was upset that a baby stroller was left in the communal hallway of the flat she shared with upstairs neighbors, Lee-Anna Shiers and her boyfriend,20, Liam Timbrell, 23. Melanie had been drinking heavily that day, and had take out dinner with Steven Clarkson. Melanie’s rage was lit when she heard noise in the apartment above, that suggested Lee-Anna and Liam were making love. It has been suggested that Melanie was jealous of the couple’s happiness because Steven was cheating on her, and their relationship was so troubled. Smith also made false allegations that Lee-Anna was having an affair with Steven, to which there is no substantiation. Melanie then went into the communal hallway and set fire to the stroller, setting off an intense fire that would leave the building looking like a bomb had hit it.

While the flat burned, Melanie crawled back into bed with Steven to make it look like she had been asleep all along. She then escaped out a window with Steven, and stood across the street to watch the family die. Witness said they could screams and cries for help but the fire was too hot and too intense to rescue the family.

The Fire Devastated the Flat, Empty the Baby Swing on the Floor Once Held Charlie (DailyMail)

Lee-Anna and Liam were trapped in the flat, desperately calling 999 for help as the fire consumed the everything around them, then took their lives.

As the fire took hold, Mr Timbrell was heard in the background of a 999 call screaming, “Oh my God, oh my God, we’re going to die.”

Justice Griffith-Williams said at sentencing: “For those who had to hear the evidence of the 999 calls, the horror of those moments in the flat upstairs as Lee-Anna and Liam faced the awful inevitability of their imminent deaths will be forever etched on their memories. Understandably the knowledge of the manner of their deaths has added to the overwhelming grief of their families, all the more to those who rushed to the house in the hope they could help…”

Lee-Anna, Liam and Charlie perished in the fire (Dailymail)

Liam and his 15 months old son, Charlie, were pulled from the fire. Charlie was pronounced dead at the scene. Lee-Anna, her nephew Bailey, 4, and niece, Skye, 2, were found deceased inside a bedroom in the flat, crouching together in the last moments of life. Despite being badly burned, Liam managed to tell police that, before the fire, he had heard Melanie shouting through the mail slot, “I’m going to burn your house down.” Liam later succumbed to his injuries and died at the hospital.

Bailey and Skye perished in fire (Dailymail)

Melanie was arrested on the scene, and has shown no remorse for her actions but tries to portray herself as the victim. During the trial, Melanie refuted the 21 witnesses who spoke against her by saying they were in a conspiracy with a woman who was having a fling with her boyfriend Steven. The jury found Melanie guilty of threatening to start a fire and murder.

The court heard victim impact statement from Jonty Lewis, 29, the mother of Skye and Bailey, who said her heart was ‘torn apart’ by their deaths,When I wake up in the morning, that first minute is beautiful…In those 60 seconds I feel no pain and I’m just listening for the laughter and footsteps running across the landing in the hope that my bedroom door will fly open and they will come bouncing in, jump onto the bed so that I can smother them in kisses. It is then that reality sets in. My heart is wrenched and the heavy empty feeling engulfs me.”

On May 7, 2013 she was convicted then sentenced to life in prison, to serve a minimum of 30 years.

BARRY GOLDSTEIN : Goats, Abusers & Family Court

The “formal Battered Mothers Custody Conference” will NOT be held this year

images

 

Why the BMCC has declined to host a “formal BMCC” has not been disclosed.  As ATW has reported, the Mother’s Movement has encountered numerous problems throughout the year…many “advocates” in the Mother’s Movement who have promised help, and to reform  family court, have proven to be abusers, shameless self promoters, cyberstalkers and otherwise incompetent. And other leading organizations in the Mother’s Movement have supported, promoted and/or enabled these abusive advocates. The unprofessional behavior of many in the Mother’s Movement has hindered progress toward meaningful family court reform and caused fear and intimidation among those they are supposed to help. 

MOLC22

Advocates in the Mother’s Movement who support and enable Claudine Dombrowski (AMPP). Dombrowski has a protective order issued against her for harassment and criminal cyberstalking

Instead of a “formal conference”, the Battered Mothers and Kids Custody Conference (BMCC) will hold a “mini BMCC” at the George Washington University Law School.

 

The Mother’s Movement is rolling out the Astroturf grass to announce Barry “Goatstein, offering a lecture on “domestic violence advocate training”.

 

Remember, in 2009, the State of New York said about Barry, “his conduct exceeded the bounds of propriety as a courtroom advocate,” and then revoked his license to practice law for 5 years. With Barry’s revocation of his law license, and affiliation with a known abuser,  you have to wonder if he has the judgment and experience to be the domestic violence expert he claims to be? And knowing Barry’s questionable past, should he be lecturing at various domestic violence and family law conferences? Should Barry be offering training to advocates? Should Barry be training and educating family court judges about domestic violence and its harmful effects on children? And should Barry be offering advice to desperate protective mothers?

 

The following quotes and screenshots are public statements made by Barry Goldstein… 

 

1) Barry says Goats Are the Best Abuse Advocates because “Of course goats always protect their kids so we can learn from them”.

 

It is insulting that Barry really thinks a goat is more knowledgeable about protecting a child than their own mother, when he claims to be an advocate for mothers and sympathetic to their cause.

 

 

2) According to Barry, Goats Are Now the Symbol “For Our Cause”.

 

3) ARE goats an appropriate symbol for Barry’s cause?? And should abuse advocates, judges and other domestic violence professionals be learning from goats?

 

Goats can be dangerous, and aggressive! ..And have a strange obsession with urine.

 

 

Goats crave the taste of human urine—and will aggressively stalk men to drink their their urine, this has resulted in the death of a hiker who was attacked by wild goats. 

 

Hikers have been warned to maintain a distance from the goats, at least 50 yards away from them – half the length of a football field.

Mountain Goat safety tips: http://www.fs.usda.gov/detail/olympic/home/?cid=stelprdb5412239

 

Harrowing story of a hiker’s close call with a mountain goat, “It was as if the sound of my zipper was a dinner bell. A narrow white face, curious, popped over a ridge 20 feet from my crotch. Then another one. Talk about stage fright, or performance anxiety. They approached confidently. They both stared at me, and I stared back at them, confused and anxious…”: http://semi-rad.com/2012/01/beware-the-urine-drinking-goats

 

Goats also spray themselves with urine prior to mating. Males goats urinate on their beards, legs and bellies to advertise their dominance. Sounds pretty sexist, huh? : http://listverse.com/2012/10/10/top-10-cute-animals-with-disgusting-toilet-habits/

 

4) According to Barry, he is celebrated by the rest of the animal kingdom for his “work to protect goats and kids”…

 

Here Barry receives a fishy breath kiss from Cailey the Dolphin, who can’t keep her fins off him, “Cailley the dolphin found out about my work to protect goats and kids and this was her immediate response.”

 

Barry compares Cailly to the family court judges, and said her kiss is quote “somewhat different from the reactions I have received from the various judges.”   

 

 

5) Barry says criminal cyberstalkers Claudine Dombrowski, Lorraine Tipton and the attack mothers at American Mothers Political Party (AMPP) “made enormous sacrifices for our movement”…while ignoring the abuse they have inflicted on other protective moms, their harassment towards other organizations working for changes in family court and their long history of cyberbullying and harassment (which continues to this day).

 

And then Barry says Bill Windsor, of Lawless America, is wrong for standing up to Claudine, and filing for a protective order to protect himself from the dangerous behavior and threats posed by Claudine and AMPP. Both Claudine and Lorraine made death threats against Bill Windsor, and also posted an online rant saying they want to “get rid of” domestic violence and family court advocate Janice Levinson (Protective Mothers Alliance International).

4) Barry says Claudine Dombrowski of AMPP, a Serial Stalker and Cyber Bully, is a “Legitimate Protective Mother” (seen screen shot below). What is that supposed to mean?  Is Barry so blindly in support of an abuser that he cannot empathize with the very REAL suffering and trauma of a mother struggling in family court against an abuser, and a system that has failed to uphold her rights and failed to protect her child?

Barry Goldstein supports serial stalker and cyberbully Claudine Dombrowski (AMPP) — even as she is attacking fellow professionals in the Mother’s Movement.

5) Does Barry have any Credibility after his License was Revoked?  In 2009, The Grievance Committee for the Ninth Judicial District, State of New York, reviewed 29 charges of professional misconduct against Barry. Of which, 17 charges were upheld, 4 separate charges partly dismissed and 8 charges completely dismissed. As a result, Barry had his license revoked for 5 years and cannot practice law until it is reinstated. http://www.nycourts.gov/reporter/3dseries/2008/2008_10622.htm

The charges involve two separate issues:  A- The main part of Barry’s legal practice, at the time, was representing tenants for a non-profit housing resource center that offers a variety of help to assist families with housing issues, and to restabilize families facing crisis or homelessness. Barry’s actions hurt an organization working hard to help struggling families, and to build stronger neighborhoods–offering help free of charge to needy families.   13 of these charges have to do with Barry mishandling client funds; and specifically that Barry failed to properly manage an escrow account and was inappropriately transferring funds. Barry also failed to keep a separate checkbook for the attorney escrow account, and failed to obtain escrow checks bearing the title “Attorney Escrow Account” or “Attorney Special Account” or “Attorney Trust Account” which would clearly identify where the money was coming from, and who was managing the account.  When asked to respond to the complaint, Barry refused to answer. 

 

B-The second part of the complaint involves how Barry handled a family law case, it should be noted the Battered Mothers Custody Conference (BMCC) was also involved with this client, and their suggestion that the mother go public with her story, including revealing sensitive details about child abuse, may have had negative impact on her custody outcome. The judge  issued a gag order that the last name of the children should not be revealed in order to protect their privacy, and Barry released the last name in an online article about the case. Barry was found to have made dishonest, false and misleading statements to the Court, and to the public when speaking about this case.

Barry claims he is being attacked by the legal system for coming to the rescue of a protective mom…but where is the proof his statements are true? Where are the affidavits or witness statements in support of Barry? And looking at Barry’s delusional comments, and record of defending abusers—how is anyone supposed to “BELIEVE” anything he has to say?

 

6) Dreams, Barry Goldstein has them… Barry has Psychic Dreams about the Deceased President John F. Kennedy; they walked along the beach, and reminisced about their lives. President Kennedy sympathizes with Barry after reading the story about his court woes, “He said he could tell from the details that this was an injustice and it could not stand.” President Kennedy makes a few phone calls, and voila the Court is apologizing to Barry and reversing its decision!

 

Note the concern Barry shows towards those hurt by his actions–the non-profit and its clients, and the mother in family court are not given even one comment as the whole post is focused on Barry alone. The Grievance Committee noted that Barry showed a “complete lack of remorse” in their findings.

Barry Goldstein had a dream that John F Kennedy made a phone call and used his connections to reinstate Barry’s (revoked) law license

Lorraine Tipton of American Mothers Political Party Pt. II: Abuser or Advocate?

LORRAINE TIPTON ADVOCATE OR ABUSER?

Lorraine Tipton, the steely cold side of the Mother’s Movement

This is just a sample of documented acts of online bullying and cyberstalking committed by Lorraine Tipton; her criminal actions well exceed this list, and ATW will continue to reveal the truth about abusers in the Mother’s Movement.

As you read, ask yourself: “Are these the actions of a concerned abuse advocate or a dangerous abuser?” The Mother’s Movement and its leaders have been presented with the same question, as evidence of AMPP’s criminal stalking and harassment has been made public, and victims are voicing complaints…their response has so far been silence and denial, which has enabled the abuse to continue, and failed to protect the victims and vulnerable moms seeking help.

2009 to the Present: Protective Mothers Alliance International, co-founded by author and domestic violence expert, Lundy Bancroft, and protective mom and advocate, Janice Levinson, say the American Mothers Political Party (AMPP) initiated a campaign of bullying, defamation and harassment against their organization and its members. Lorraine has participated in or instigated many of these vicious attacks.

Some of the outrageous allegations made by AMPP include: Janice Levinson is “very evil” and “very deadly” and “will mercilessly slaughter you and your children”. Lundy Bancroft has been called “the a—hole of the Mother’s Movement” and called a cult leader. Many of the attacks include vulgar and degrading sexual images and language, threats and various false allegations. ONLY an abuser would enjoy destroying and tearing down a woman, and attack those who come to her defense—how can you represent a “mother’s movement” and be an “abuse advocate” when you adopt the tactics of an abuser, and use language, videos and behavior that is clearly cruel and degrading towards women?

Lundy Bancroft’s statement at “Defending a Women’s Rights Activist Who Is Under Attack”: http://lundybancroft.blogspot.com/2013/07/defending-womens-rights-activist-who-is.html

Statement from Janice Levinson posted on the Venture Philosophy Blog: http://venturephilosophy.blogspot.com/2013/01/american-mothers-political-party-is.html

— (10/29/2010) Lorraine implicates herself as participating in online stalking, harassment and defamation with Claudine Dombrowski and “All of Us” against court officers working on Claudine Dombrowski’s custody case. Lorraine refers to the victims as “court whores”: http://mamaliberty.wordpress.com/2010/10/29/will-the-real-claudine-dombrowski-please-stand-up/

**It should be noted that Claudine has created blogs using the names of these court officers, and has posted their personal information and made various false and derogatory remarks against them all over the internet These blogs point back to Claudine because they mention details about Claudine’s case that only she would know, include information about AMPP and some of them are even written using the name “William M. Windsor” (why is Claudine impersonating Bill Windsor?!?).

–(2010 -Present) Lorraine wrongly believes that defamation, bullying and hate speech is protected by the First Amendment. The cover of the MamaLiberty blog says, “I am protected by the First Amendment that gives me freedom of speech, so get the f—over yourselves”. Is this the professionalism of an abuse advocate and “leader” in the Mother’s Movement or the gutter mouth of an abuser who does not care how her words and actions affect others???

–(10/22/2010) Lorraine again admits to cyberstalking and terrorizing court officers involved in Claudine’s case, “So they claim that Claudine Dombrowski is everywhere…posting this….posting that….posting on her facebook page…CYBERSTALKING HER or was it HER???”

And “I assure all of the idiots from Shawnee County right now that WE are everywhere…Claudine is our HERO…we love and cherish everyday that she has been in our lives…because we have had our own DIS-honarable Judge Debenhams in our life too….we have had our own court whore like Jill M. Dykes….WE ARE CLAUDINE! WE ARE EVERYWHERE!!”

There is more.. “We are not going to give up, shut up or go away….sorry. Gag the internet…..but the internet is here to stay and so are we. Ten years ago you would never find the social networking we have today. Thank you facebook….thank you MySpace…thank you Al Gore! You might be able to threaten a protective mother to not post anything and violate her first amendment rights….but you cannot GAG us all.” http://mamaliberty.wordpress.com/2010/10/22/where-in-the-world-is-claudine-dombrowski/

What has been posted? ATW has reviewed these hateful blogs that contain disturbing sexual material (accusing one victim of having “the dry vagina hots” for her clients), outrageous false allegations that the supervised visitation facility is involved in child trafficking, identity theft of the victims, swearing and name calling, posting personal contact information about the victims, and worse…these blogs still remain on the internet.

See a pattern forming? Dr. Phil says the best predictor of future behavior is past behavior…

–(10/22/2010) Lorraine Tipton engages in victim blaming, she believes that the people she has cyberstalked and terrorized deserve to be abused or did something to provoke her, “Your askew view has made you the target….YOU DID THIS to yourself.” http://mamaliberty.wordpress.com/2010/10/22/where-in-the-world-is-claudine-dombrowski/

Victim blaming has also been used by Lorraine to justify attacks on Bill Windsor, Lundy Bancroft, and Janice Levinson.

Lorraine says Bill Windsor deserves to be cyberstalked because he is a “refractory bigamist” and “Windsor’s stooges seem to be caught up in their need for enemies.”

Lorraine Tipton/Mama Liberty: Lawless Supporters are Laughable Pissants, Psychotic Fruitcakes: http://abusiveadvocates.com/2013/02/19/mama-liberty-laughable-pissants/

–(1/7 to 1/9/2011) At the 2011, Battered Mother’s Custody Conference (BMCC), “Badass Mama”Lorraine Tipton revealed the following ,”How internet groups allow us to form tribes of mothers over long distances and sparsely populated areas through the use of technology and How “To’s” to Safely set up blogs, link and linking, news features to AMPP network -via the BADASS Success.”http://imaginepublicity.com/2010/12/03/3372/

All of which is a blue print for the AMPP cyber gang of Attack Mothers who work together to stalk, terrorize and harass victims online.

See also how the Glenns Cult/Petunia Pig refers to both the AMPP “Anonymums” and the “Badass Mamas”… coincidence???

–2012 to the Present: AMPP members (including Lorraine and Claudine Dombrowski) individually and collectively as a group (also joining in with the Joeys) begin stalk, harass, slander, and threaten Bill Windsor, creator of the “Lawless America” documentary exposing government corruption.

Read Bill’s AMPP Hate Group Expose here: http://www.americanmotherspoliticalparty.com/

Naomi Chambers video on harassment from American Mothers Political Party: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=W3c2LSn4fRU

Lorraine also has attacked several protective moms, and cannot be an advocate because she is hurting other moms, who are vulnerable and traumatized and deserve to be protected, NOT intimidated by Lorraine and AMPP.

ATW has viewed a photograph of one protective mom featured on Lorraine’s blog with loving comments next to her name—you would think she is a friend. WRONG! Lorraine later follows up on this beautiful picture by gossiping and making negative comments of an embarrassing nature against this poor protective mom. ATW has screenshots to prove this, and the only reasons they are not posted is to protect this protective mom from further embarrassment.

Using the name “Rainy68”, under the AMPP account, created and posted hateful videos about Bill Windsor and his government corruption documentary, “Lawless America” online. Including “The Pie Man Floateth”

Lorraine Tipton posting nasty videos about Bill Windsor on YouTube. Not the similarities between “The Pie Man Floateth” and Julia Focker’s “Bitler” videos.

Using her real name Lorraine Tipton, posted and passed around another hateful video called “Bitler” by the alias “Julia Focker”. Once again slandering Bill Windsor but also mocking the Holocaust and disrespecting the memory of the 10 million victims murdered. You have to be an evil person to laugh about the Holocaust, and twist this tragedy to use to your own benefit.

-Lorraine has joined in acts of cyberstalking, bullying, harassment and defamation on the Joeys blog. Targets include Bill Windsor (Lawless America), Lundy Bancroft (domestic violence author & speaker, co-founder of Protective Mothers Alliance International, PMA), Janice Levinson (protective mom, co-founder of PMA) and other protective moms, and anyone she feels is a threat.

Lorraine has declared “war” on fellow abuse advocacy group, Protective Mothers Alliance International (PMA). Lorraine has viciously attacked and slandered both of its founders, Lundy Bancroft and Janice Levinson. Lorraine has also attacked and slandered anyone who supports PMA—including other protective moms.

Is There Really a “War” in the Mother’s Movement?: http://abusiveadvocates.com/2013/04/07/war-mothers-movement/

–(2/2/2013) Lorraine gossiped and made fun of advocates and protective mothers at the Battered Mothers Custody Conference (BMCC) then posted her false, and embarrassing statements on the Joeys site for all to see. According to Lorraine, she only went to the BMCC to see Barry Goldstein; and referred to other advocates as “stupid” and “a hole”.

DOB: August 17, 1968

VOCATIONAL BACKGROUND:

Graduate Coleman High School, Class of 1986

Cosmetology

Selling Candles

ROLE IN THE MOTHER’S MOVEMENT:

Co-Founder of American Mothers Political Party (AMPP). Media/PR Relations, AMPP. Presenter at Battered Mothers Custody Conference (BMCC).

Lorraine refers to AMPP as “a bunch of talking vaginas”.

LOCATION: Wisconsin

BACKGROUND:

 At this time, ATW will reserve comment on Lorraine’s two custody cases, other than to include these comments that are from her own words, and give insight to the concerns of the Court in Lorraine’s family situation, and parenting ability. Child custody litigation is complex, especially when abuse allegations are involved, and when the case extends over a number of years. ATW would like to express our support to the children involved, we sincerely hope that despite past difficulties, that all of you go on to enjoy happy and successful lives.

 Lorraine has 3 daughters from a first marriage, she lost custody of the children to their father during a divorce and custody ruling in 1997. According to Lorraine, “Frank Calvert, of Oconto County, (was) the GAL on my divorce/custody proceedings in 1997 who recommended custody to my ex abusive husband-.. It was also Mr. Calvert who made sure that in his recommendations that in order for me to have primary placement with my older three daughters I was to have a “stable living environment away from Craig Hensberger”. http://thesharedparentingdisaster.blogspot.com/2009/10/hero-mother-her-story.html

 Though the ex husband retained custody of the 3 children, Lorraine did have regular visitation. 

Despite the concerns of the Court, Lorraine continued her relationship with Craig Hensberger (they never married) and in 1998, she gave birth to a daughter. Lorraine became involved in an intense custody dispute with Craig . The abuse allegations and reports are ongoing, Lorraine alleges that Craig abuses her daughter and is an alcoholic. Craig has a criminal record, and denies all allegations made by Lorraine.

According to Lorraine,”…the sitting judge on the case, Judge Miron, also made his threats again that maybe he would ‘contact CPS because neither one of us is a fit parent and maybe he should take he away from both of us’… He stated that maybe foster care was the best place for her. “ http://thesharedparentingdisaster.blogspot.com/2009/10/hero-mother-her-story.html

Judge Miron

Lorraine has posted details about the custody case involving her fourth child online, including the legal name of her child, and the graphic details of the abuse allegations. ATW strongly believes that children deserve privacy, and that posting their real name and sensitive details about abuse online for all to see is traumatic, and creates a public history that follows the child, even into adulthood. Anyone going online—potential employers, college recruiters, a potential boy/girlfriend etc—will be able to look up that child’s name, and read details of the parent’s custody battle, and abuse allegations. The child then loses their ability to form their own identity, and becomes defined by the past—as a victim. This is extremely unfair, and takes away the privacy a child deserves. There is a proper place to report abuse, and a proper way to advocate for your child, posting your child’s name/identifying information and revealing graphic details of abuse all over the internet is reckless and dangerous, and only causes more harm to the child.

 Lorraine also went on the “Glenns Cult/Petunia Pig” website to make fun of and “expose” her alleged abuser, Craig Hensberger. At one point, it appears Craig considered filing a libel case against Lorraine because of what was posted on “Glenns Cult”. ATW has to wonder if you are truly afraid of your abuser, who now has custody of your vulnerable child, why would you go online and aggressively post material that would likely provoke his anger and place your child in jeopardy?

Abusers in the Mother’s Movement Pt 2: Barry Goldstein &AMPP; Claudine Dombrowski

CLAUDINE & AMPP: DISMANTLE THE MOTHER’S MOVEMENT

According to Claudine a change is needed in the Mother’s Movement, it should be torn down completely, and she will lead these efforts, along with her hand selected allies “DV orgs, awareness?? seriously?? They need to be dismantled and a new what is needed now– begun.”

AND, “Its out with the old in with the new and dammit what we are doing is not working. The moms know this they are the change and with strategy, political and legal. Now moving because of the strength of mothers coming out — then the movement must to change to support and foster that growth. eg. Barry strategy Representing the DV victim, BMCC learning to lobby… you see old is not good it is oppressive.”

Reply to Lundy Bancroft – Change is here, Lead, Follow or get out of the way. Human Rights. July 20, 2013. http:// claudinedombrowski.blog spot. com

As you read Claudine’s delusional letter, it strongly appears that she thought she was able to control Bancroft, and that she was somehow responsible for his success. Those feelings since have transferred to Barry.

Claudine attacks Lundy Bancroft in order to prop up Barry Goldstein – no one in the Mother’s Movement objects to this kind of abusive, and manipulative behavior

See for yourself…

This is how Claudine described Bancroft, at the beginning of the Mother’s Movement, when she supported him: “Then he published more books, does speaking, became our voice, the voice of the beaten, trembling, terrified battered mother..” (Note: There is NO indication that Bancroft wanted or asked for any recognition for his advocacy work for battered women, nor did he ever take credit for being “the voice” of battered women.)

What is Barry Goldstein doing? Publishing books, public speaking and promoting his own ideas on how on legal strategy and related issues in family court. Goldstein is also promoting his books at the Battered Mothers Custody Conference (BMCC) — which what Claudine says is “profiting off the suffering of mothers”.

What is the difference – Goldstein has Claudine’s support, and he offers Claudine support in return. Goldstein is willing to look the other way when the law is broken by Claudine and the Attack Mothers (AMPP). Goldstein looks the other way when mothers and advocates are victimized, even when it is happening on his own Facebook wall.

 

Goldstein endorses Claudine’s vision for tearing down the Mother’s Movement because he has a starring role in it.

Claudine Dombrowski is one of Goldstein’s strongest supporters, and on several of Dombrowksi’s attacking blogs, Goldstein is openly promoted by linking his blog, reposting his article or posting his actual photograph. Claudine has created these attack blogs using the names of targeted victims, publishing their personal information (spouse, home address, e-mail, phone number etc) without their consent. On these blogs, Claudine writes vulgar and defamatory articles about the victim–all the while promoting Goldstein on those very sites! Once again, Goldstein shows he is willing to look the other way, and remain silent while an abuser terrorizes her victims.

Barry Goldstein praises Claudine Dombrowski and says it is wrong for Bill Windsor to defend himself against her attacks, even after Claudine threatened Bill’s life

The hate sites are mentioned in Bill Windsor’s affidavit against Claudine, “She stalks and defames a number of local attorneys, doctors, and social workers by setting up websites in their names. Note that she publishes all of their personal information – name, address, phone, email, and more. These websites were set up before she and her organization and associates began stalking me. It demonstrates a pattern and practice of wrongful behavior by DOMBROWSKI…” (see #7,
http://claudinedombrowski.com/?p=148)

How can Barry Goldstein ignore what is happening –isn’t he a domestic violence advocate? This is abuse!

Bill Windsor states Claudine Dombrowski’s actions constitute stalking and harassment; Claudine responds by giving him the “middle finger”

ATW noticed a similar pattern of behavior on Goldstein’s Facebook wall—with the worst of attacks happening in the Summer of 2013. Several mothers contacted ATW to complain. Publicly, AMPP supporters were attacking moms and advocates, using obscenities and disgusting language. One AMPP supporter even outed a protective mom using an alias, and revealed her true identity. It seemed that AMPP supporters were hovering over Goldstein’s wall, provoking and looking for an opportunity to attack. Goldstein’s response included the following: Deleting comments of those attempting to defend themselves. Leaving comments up of those abusing or harassing others. Ignoring the actual abuse. Choosing to work with, and alongside the abusers. To this day, Claudine and AMPP Attack Mothers continue to post on Barry’s wall, and share his support.

In response to Lundy Bancroft’s letter to denounce abuse in the Mother’s Movement, and stop working with abusers, it appears that Barry Goldstein’s response is to rally support for Claudine—his statement is then reposted on a hate blog she created to viciously attack and slander PMA International co-founder, Janice Levinson.

http://janicelevinson .blogspot.com/2 013/07/wh eres-evid ence-you-asked. html

Barry Goldstein’s support of Claudine Dombrowksi appears on a hate blog that is filled with profanity, disgusting sexual material, defamation and vicious attacks

Barry refers to Claudine as a “legitimate protective mom”. What is that? Under whose standard is a “legitimate protective mom”… or “legitimate rape”?

Barry goes on to say that “good work and sincere people are doing to reform the broken system..”

If we are to believe Barry then “good work” would include this hate site, created using Levinson’s name in the blog address without her consent. The “sincere people” who created this blog “to reform the broken system” use profanity, verbal abuse, disgusting sexual jokes and pictures, defamation, identity theft and steal artwork from the Holocaust Memorial Museum in their campaign of harassment. This disgusting blog became the platform where Barry’s support of Claudine was showcased. Again, a similar pattern as Barry being promoted on Claudine’s other hate blogs—this has been going on for years.

Barry Goldstein’s support for Claudine Dombrowski appeared on this disgusting hate site where his “friend” Janice Levinson of PMA is being openly attacked and slandered

Barry then uses “victim blaming” – a common tactic of abusers where they denigrate and blame the victim, often stating they are deserving of abuse, in order to avoid responsibility for their actions. Barry uses victim blaming by stating that both Bill Windsor (Lawless America) and Janice Levinson are just misunderstanding Claudine. Barry moves on to attack Windsor by stating the abuse is just a “personal issue” on his part. And even though stating Levinson is a “friend”, Barry similarly attacks her by reaffirming Claudine’s comments Levinson is “undermining” the Mother’s Movement. No Barry—abuse “undermines” the Mother’s Movement, and efforts to protect mothers and children.

Almost a year has passed since this post was created, and published all over the internet, and Barry has done nothing to dispute its content. Clearly, Barry supports Claudine and the AMPP Attack Mothers, and supports abuse by allowing his words to justify their criminal behavior and also by allowing his name and professional work to be used on blogs that are clearly created for stalking and harassment—to intimidate and cause fear not only to its victims, but to other protective moms and domestic violence organizations as well.

In the months that have passed, Windsor presented evidence before a court of law, and petitioned for a protective order against Claudine—which was granted. That is to say, a reasonable person looking at Claudine’s actions—including screenshots of her various hate sites, online attacks, death threats, instances of identity theft and worse views these actions as criminal and threatening. Those who support Claudine, support criminal stalking, defamation and harassment.

Claudine Dombrowski threatens to shoot Bill Windsor – WHY is she supported by Barry Goldstein and the Mother’s Movement?

According to Claudine, the “old” Mother’s Movement “is not good, it is oppressive” and “the movement must change..” Barry Goldstein has followed this need for change, and show strong support of Claudine.

Are these the advocates we are to trust?

And what is the Mother’s Movement changing into??

 

Maria Bauer Melinn: Advise for Moms in court: Benadryl!

mmbenadryl[1]

Maria Bauer Melinn reveals her strategy for abused women dealing with traumatic family court procedures: Benadryl! Is Maria qualified to give medical or legal advise? Nope!

Read more on Maria’s latest exploits…

How Sick and Disabled is Maria Bauer Melinn??
Maria wants us to believe that she is so disabled, and debilitated with life-threatening heart problems that it is impossible for her to serve any time in jail–and this punishment for contempt may endanger her life. Maria has even posted pictures of herself online, showing that she is in a hospital with heart monitors taped to her chest, her face devoid of its usual flirtations. With the last of her failing strength, Maria lifts the cell phone and pushes a button.., snap! snap! A selfie reveals one last valiant stand against “injustice”.

And in a snap, everything can change– but look at this  screen shot, Maria is commenting to another mother who is pro se in a family court matter, offering help. Maria says that she is able to “call a DV shelter on Monday” before she goes to jail. Maria is acting as an advocate and willing to “talk about strategy”.

If Maria is strong enough and of sound mind so that she is able to advocate for other moms, and is able work with other domestic violence organizations in order to “help” another mom with a very difficult and time consuming family court situation… then her claims of being so sick to the point of death are highly suspect.

Maria Melinn Broke Back on Motorcyle http://abusiveadvocates.com/2013/09/23/maria-bauer-melinn-broke-back-motorcycle/

Maria’s Advice to Moms in Family Court: Take Benadryl!
This mom is pouring her heart out online, giving very sensitive and personal details about her family court situation, which are now made public due to her disclosures. Maria is encouraging this mom to keep talking, and to go public–with little regard for this mom’s safety or privacy, and the possible implications for revealing so much.

Maria’s advice to help this mom cope in family court: “Many Moms find Benadryl helps on court days..”

Possible side effects of Benadryl include: Drowsiness, Dizziness, Mood Swings, Blurred Vision, Confusion and Irregular or Fast Heartbeat. Allergic reactions to Benadryl can cause seizures, difficulty breathing, swelling of the face/tongue and severe dizziness.
http://www.webmd.com/drugs/drug-5680-Benadryl+Oral.aspx

What would happen if a mom actually took Maria’s advice and popped some Benadryl right before going into family court, especially a mom who is pro se or acting as her own attorney? Would it look good before the judge if the mom was falling asleep…if she had a sudden change in mood that affected her ability to represent herself…if her tongue swelled and she could not speak for herself in court or even breathe…..if she got dizzy or confused? Or what if the Mom had a drug interaction related to Benadryl and a medication she was already taking? How would the abuser to react to that? How would the Judge respond, the Guardian ad Litem or other court professionals?

ATW finds it alarming, and frankly irresponsible for Maria–who has NO MEDICAL TRAINING and is not a licensed medical provider– to suggest Benadryl to anyone, even worse a vulnerable mom desperate for help. Maria’s advice could potentially 1) endanger the health of a mom taking her advise and 2) have a severe and negative impact on her court case–and the relationship she has with her children if she appears to be impaired or drugged, or is unable to represent herself due to the effects of Benadryl.

Did Benadryl Contribute to Maria’s Heart Problems?
ATW can only speculate, until we have proof, but Maria’s suggestion to take Benadryl, makes you wonder if Maria is also taking Benadryl to cope with her clegal issues. One of the side effects of Benadryl is fast or irregular heartbeat, and once ingested Benadryl is almost impossible to trace.

From a report on Maria:”Domestic violence victim Maria Melinn, an ethnic Hebrew-American (genealogically verified), was subjected to these abuses, in violation of her ADA orders, right here in Allegan County, Michigan this month. She has been denied most of her heart and cholesterol medications by the Jail’s medical staff during the first 6 days of her 60-day unlawful detainment, as well as her physician-mandated mattress, wheelchair, heart monitor (via denial of the charging cord for the unit’s receiver), and physical therapy sessions for her back..As a direct result, Ms. Melinn has had 2 cardiac incidents after only 6 days under these conditions. She had a severe episode of chest pain, angina, and tachycardia on the 3rd day of her unlawful detainment, and another cardiac event on day 6. She was admitted into the progressive intensive care unit of the hospital that evening with severe chest pain and other cardiac symptoms. Her condition was able to be stabilized after nearly 24 hours of in-patient care.”
http://allegancountylegaldocs.wordpress.com/tag/maria-melinn/

Benadryl could pose a risk to Maria’s health.. so why would she advise it to someone else?

Maria Implicates Barry Goldstein
Maria goes on to offer her unprofessional and uneducated legal assistance to this mom. Keep in mind that Maria has no legal training, no law degree and a majority of her “advocacy” training was given by the disgraced American Mothers Political Party (AMPP), where Maria once was president. AMPP has been recently exposed for their criminal acts of stalking, harassment and defammation. Their leader, Claudine Dombrowski, is facing criminal charges and has a protective order filed against her (other evidence suggests that Claudine is a serial stalker with a long history of harassment towards others).

Maria implicates Barry Goldstein as being a partner in offering advocacy services for abused women in court, whether this is true or not cannot be validated–but that Maria would use his name so publicly, and so freely could only mean they share a close relationship–or that Maria wishes they had one.

Maria states, “I will talk with you about strategy etc. in the courtroom”
Maria then goes on to offer up the services of Barry Goldstein: “we will work on how to handle cross examination… I am sure Barry will also talk to you about strategy too.”
Barry Goldstein is a former attorney now working as a domestic violence advocate, speaker and author. He does not have a current law license and cannot legally give any legal advise.
Common sense says there is only two ways to look at Maria’s implication of Barry:
1) Maria is dropping Barry’s name to give herself credibility, and to bolster her image as an advocate. And Barry may not be involved or is not aware of her remarks.
2) Barry is actively working with Maria–and the organizations she represents.
Either way this kind of advice presents a real danger for any protective mom who may be fooled into believing that Maria is a qualified advocate, and especially a danger that this advice may be used in court and jeopardize a mom’s case, and her custody/visitation.
