FOUR REASONS American men seek romance abroad: Prague, Ha Long Bay, Red Square, small villages in Latin America. Somehow meeting a Czech, Vietnamese, Russian or Peruvian/Colombian/Brazilian woman for a date at one of these exotic places is incomparably more exciting than meeting a hometown girl at the local coffeeshop. Opponents of a man's right to meet foreign women online never stop to consider how enjoyable it is to travel/work/live abroad and learn new cultures and languages while seeking a marriage partner.

This is a very significant newspaper analysis which will help in our fight against IMBRA.  The Washington Post uncovered widespread fraud in human trafficking reporting.  Beginning in 2000, the US government has found sex trafficking a convenient target to attack and they have given millions and millions to stop it.  NGOs and feminist groups have sprung up to lap up the gobs of money the feds and the states have spent on this essentially non-existent problem.

The National Organization of Women, the Tahirih Justice Center, sexist and racist US Senator Maria Cantwell and other sundry kneejerk feminist groups have used these phony reports of massive human trafficking to justify a law against men who want to meet foreign women, IMBRA.

Statement of Senator Maria Cantwell
Foreign Relations Committee
July 13, 2004
"Mr. Chairman, thank you for inviting me to testify before the Committee today. I also want to thank you for working with me to bring recognition to the nexus between human trafficking and problems with international marriage brokers."
Human trafficking is the politic way of describing modern-day slavery."  "...18,000 and 20,000 people are trafficked into the United States each year."  "When we talk about human trafficking and abuse, we need to also be aware of the advent of for-profit international marriage brokers - companies that operate solely to connect men and women of different nations with the intent of getting married."
http://usinfo.state.gov/gi/Archive/2004/Jul/15-596569.html

Those who are members of this site already knew this was the fraud of the century.  Finally we will be able to begin proving it to the world with the help of responsible journalists like the one at the Post who broke this story.  (BTW, I just wrote him and told him he can find the same level of fraud in the making of IMBRA.)

Advocacy groups that get taxpayer money for "protecting" foreign women and the thoughtless media call foreign woman a "mail order bride" if she met her husband via internet.  This is American imperialism, it is denigrating, insulting and portrays the women as helpless fools.

The Social Construction of Sex Trafficking: Ideology and Institutionalization of a Moral Crusade
Ronald Weitzer
George Washington University, weitzer@gwu.edu

The issue of sex trafficking has become increasingly politicized in recent years due to the efforts of an influential moral crusade. This article examines the social construction of sex trafficking (and prostitution more generally) in the discourse of leading activists and organizations within the crusade, and concludes that the central claims are problematic, unsubstantiated, or demonstrably false. The analysis documents the increasing endorsement and institutionalization of crusade ideology in U.S. government policy and practice.

VAWA Gives More Rights to Illegals than Citizens

September 19, 2007 at 7:34 am · Filed under Vox Populi

Attention, ladies of the world: The U.S. Congress has now granted you the Keys to Kingdom that will unlock the door to U.S. citizenship, a good-paying job, and tons of free services. Here’s how it works.

First, get into the United States, anyway you can. If you’re going to do it legally, a Temporary Worker visa is the easiest way. But why bother with the paperwork, just walk across the border when they’re looking the other way!

Next, you need to find a man. Do it quickly before they can deport you. And preferably a guy who can’t afford his own lawyer — I’ll explain why in a minute.

Tell him you came to the United States to find a new life, to start over, whatever. Use your feminine wiles. Tell him how badly your previous boss or boyfriend treated you. Move in with him. If you can get pregnant or married, that much better.

Here’s where it gets a little dicey, but if you follow my instructions carefully, you’ll nail down that restraining order and hit the VAWA jackpot. Think of a time when he raised his voice, got angry, or told you to stop over-spending the bank account. In our abundant Land of Opportunity, all of those things are considered to be domestic violence!

Now all you have to do is go to a judge and say the argument you had last night made you feel afraid. If you can say it with a trembling lip or misted eye, that will work wonders.

Or just accuse him of trying to “control” you. All this may sound unbelievable, but judges have been to lots of classes, and they know that domestic violence is all about power and control.

If that doesn’t work, just make something up about him shoving or forcing you to have sex. But don’t claim he actually slugged you, or the judge might want to see the bruises – then you’d have some explaining to do.

Don’t worry about your illegal status, because amazingly the judge is not allowed to ask. Not only that, judges are instructed, “A denial of a protective order would be discrimination based on national origin which is specifically prohibited by law.” You can find that in the Arizona Domestic Violence Benchbook – right there on page 25: www.supreme.state.az.us/cidvc/PDF/DVBB.pdf .

That drive-through restraining order will get your husband or boyfriend kicked out of the house. Now the fun really begins.

First, claiming to be a battered woman (it’s better to use red-meat words like “battered” rather than “abused”) makes it almost impossible for the Citizenship and Immigration Service to deport you.

And now you can start to apply for a broad range of benefits – welfare, Medicaid, and child support. Remember, none of these programs need to know that you are an illegal immigrant – even if they ask, and don’t have to answer.

Then you can go to the Immigration Service and “self-petition” for work authorization, permanent residency, and eventual citizenship. Form I-360 says all you need is an order of protection – so the 15 minutes you spent at the courthouse is already reaping huge dividends.

At some point they might ask you if you are a victim of battery or extreme cruelty. Don’t worry, because if you look at the fine print, the law says your self-declaration is enough. That means whatever you say, they have to believe you. Didn’t I tell you this was going to be a blast?

And there are loads of websites that give step-by-step instructions how to work the system, like WomensLaw.org: http://www.womenslaw.org/immigrantsVAWA.htm#25

If you still don’t believe me how easy this is, then go to the website of the U.S. government: http://www.uscis.gov/portal/site/uscis/menuitem.5af9bb95919f35e66f614176543f6d1a/?vgnextoid=499a6c854523d010VgnVCM10000048f3d6a1RCRD&vgnextchannel=828807b03d92b010VgnVCM10000045f3d6a1RCRD

So it all boils down to three simple steps:

1. Get into the country
2. Find a man
3. Accuse him of abuse

And remember the Violence Against Women Act guarantees you free legal help. But your husband or boyfriend won’t be eligible, so if he can’t afford a lawyer, you’ve already won the case.

Maybe you’ve heard of men who were falsely accused of abuse, how it ruined their reputations, emptied out their bank accounts, and destroyed relationships with their children.

Don’t worry about those stories. Congress put these benefits into the VAWA law, so obviously it intended for you to take advantage of them.

You go, girl!

      DcFather said,

      One could write a myriad of "How To" books, for women only:

      - How to turn your illegal status into legal and get gobs of government goodies

      - How to kill your husband while he sleeps and get away with it.

      - How to get your husband out of the house but still make him pay for everything.

      - How to maximize your child support income (e.g. 4 children from 4 fathers pays a lot more than 4 children from 1 father)

      - How to ruin any man's life using false accusations of rape

      - How to commit paterntiy fraud for fun and profit

      - How to get media sympathy once you've done these things

      Technically, some of these at least are illegal, so publishing such a book would land you in prison, especially if you are male, so one would have to live in another country to get away with it. Besides, it would be a financial disaster for the legal profession, because telling these not-so-secret secrets is what they do for big money nowadays, and for that reason even a female author might get prosecuted.

I responded to the Washington Post article revealing the massive fraud being perpetuated by Non Governmental Organizations whose executives that made those outrageous claims actually make handsome salaries and some have political aspirations. The Polaris Project (mentioned in the article and my blog post) actually partnered with Lifetime TV to produce the miniseries "Human trafficking" which was hysterically staged to attract legislative support for the International Marriage Broker Regulation Act in October 2005. Here is what I wrote:


"Non government Organizations (NGO's) are chiefly responsible for manufacturing “a growing problem” of trafficking in order to generate revenue for their Federally funded cottage industry. They also fabricated numbers by expanding the definition of trafficking to include practically anyone.

For example various women's groups testified under oath at the Senate Foreign Relations Committee (July 13, 2004) that US based matchmaking organizations were correlated to human trafficking rings.
http://www.womenspolicy.org/thesource/article.cfm?ArticleID=1442

This hysterical claim was an emotional ploy to get legislators to enact the International Marriage Broker Regulation Act. The truth reveals THERE HAS NEVER BEEN A US BASED MATCHMAKING AGENCY ARRESTED FOR TRAFFICKING. These NGO's spread their propaganda partnering with Lifetime television(Television for women) conducting a poll among viewers (mostly women) to asociate "mail order brides services" with trafficking of women to generate support for the International Marriage Broker Regulation Act. http://www.wqad.com/global/story.asp?s=3970595&ClientType=Print


This romance law requires American men submit criminal hard copy records to be reviewed before they can communicate with a foreign lady using a matchmaking organization.
http://www.wqad.com/global/story.asp?s=3970595&ClientType=Print

Why should the US government dole out millions of dollars to NGO’s such as Polaris Project whose executives are paid handsome salaries when the money could be spent on REAL PROBLEMS helping young disadvantaged poor kids in Washington DC, Baltimore or in rural Appalachia? A full Congressional investigation would easily be warranted to determine why the taxpayers of American (men and women) continue to pay for this obvious bi-partisan fraud and corruption".

Shortly after the Washington Post revealed the massive fraud regarding Non government Organizations making outrageous claims regarding Trafficking statistics several ODR members wrote to the Washington Post. The Post refused to publish our Letters to the Editor. Nonetheless there apparently was a flurry of interst and yesterday the Washington Post published 4 "letters to the Editor" addressing the original trafficking article.

One letter "Regarding Human Trafficking Evokes Outrage, Little Evidence" was written by a  brilliant Canadian who apparently understands the flaws in our corrupt legislative government better than the average American.

"Moral panic evoked by groups with vested interests has been hijacking government policy around the world, as did the white-slavery crusade of the late 19th century. This not only diverts resources but stifles rational debate about the very real problems regarding the safety, health and welfare of those in the sex industry.

Here is a copy of the link for all four Letters:

"White Slavery" As Metaphor
Anatomy of a Moral Panic
by Mary Ann Irwin
The History Journal
1996 - Volume V
History Department, San Francisco State University
http://www.walnet.org/csis/papers/irwin-wslavery.html

[edited by Tristan]

On 6 July 1885, the Pall Mall Gazette, one of England's premier daily newspapers, began a series titled "The Maiden Tribute of Modern Babylon." The series was an instant sensation; it not only rocked English society to its foundations, but sent shockwaves throughout Europe, through France and Belgium, and into the United States. The public outcry that followed forced Parliament to enact specific legislation and led to the establishment of local organizations and international networks which survive to the present day. The topic of "The Maiden Tribute" was white slavery -- the abduction, sale, and organized rape of English virgins.
As the title suggests, "The Maiden Tribute" successfully linked in the public mind two basically unrelated topics -- prostitution and slavery. The title was itself an odd admixture of Christian legend and Greek folklore, combining temple prostitution in ancient Babylon with the tale of the Minotaur. According to Greek mythology, every seventh year the people of Athens were compelled to sacrifice seven virgins to this "frightful monster, half man, half bull, the foul product of unnatural lust." But in "The Maiden Tribute," London had become the modern Babylon:
 
 
In successive installments, the Gazette presented the stories of prostitutes decoyed into the life while still innocent children. The series described the tricks used to lure virgins into the locked rooms that sealed their doom, and detailed the corruption of officials who winked at the trade and thus allowed it to continue. More shocking still, the Gazette drew back the curtain on those wealthy Victorian men to whom the white slave trade catered, suggesting graphically the sexual tastes of those to whom "the shriek of torture [was] the essence of their delight." As it progressed, "The Maiden Tribute" revealed the silk-hatted, kid-gloved Minotaur at play, secreted with his terrified human sacrifices in specially equipped rooms, there to "enjoy to the full the exclusive luxury of revelling in the cries of the immature child." [2]
   
As intended, the series threw Victorian England into a panic over prostitution and forced an official response to the activities described. But the idea of white slavery was nothing new. Rather, the moral panic which followed "The Maiden Tribute" drew its force from a potent reworking of reformist idioms made familiar in the course of England's long battle over the Contagious Diseases Acts of 1864, 1866, and 1869. Briefly, the Acts provided for identification and registration of prostitutes in specific military depots in southern England and Ireland, mandated regular speculum examination of registered prostitutes, and granted police sweeping discretionary powers in identifying and incarcerating women suspected of prostitution. [3] Although prostitution had long been a fact of English life, in the late nineteenth-century it assumed the proportion of a pressing social problem. Where only a few publications appeared between 1810 and 1840, sixteen books and twenty-six articles on prostitution were published between 1840 and 1870. [4] Although the Contagious Diseases Acts were designed to deal with a perceived increase in prostitution and a concommitant rise in venereal disease, the Acts essentially sanctioned an implicit system of regulated prostitution in England. Opponents of this system argued that regulated prostitution created a permanent class of sex slaves and stimulated the traffic in women and children. The white slavery metaphor thus became a staple of anti-regulation rhetoric, developed and refined in the context of England's struggle to define an official response to the problem of prostitution.
   
The metaphor "worked" because it succeeded in forcing separate and unrelated ideas into a single conceptual framework. This success was rooted in the social and material conditions of Victorian society; for men and women anxiously regarding signs of corruption and moral decline, the white slavery metaphor organized a number of nameless fears into a unitary moral framework. The tensions created by economic depression, political upheaval, social reorganization, and demographic imbalance found voice in the seemingly endless debate over private morality, and set the stage for the evolution of the white slavery metaphor and the panic its rhetoric fueled. [5]
In following this evolution, it becomes evident that the white slavery metaphor comprises an intriguing cluster of ideas concerning men and women, sex and society, rich and poor, villains and victims, corruption and exploitation. These themes and the rhetoric of white slavery are connected to the conditions and cultures of Victorian society. Reformers struck upon the rhetoric of white slavery as a means of redirecting the public debate over prostitution. The white slavery idea helped to recast the image of the prostitute, enabling the public to see her sympathetically as the victim of social and economic forces beyond her control. This reformulation allowed reformers to shift attention away from the prostitute and toward those who profited by her trade, redirecting censure from victim to exploiter, from individual to society, and, most importantly, from women to men. The white slavery trope thus structured a dialogue based in social criticism, outlining reformers' vision of the evils caused by an exploitive and oppressive economic system, the injustices countenanced by a heartless and hypocritical society, and the relentless cruelty occasioned by men's oppression of women.
 
The issue is essentially one of definition: acceptance of the white slavery idea depends a great deal upon how one defines it. For example, what the modern feminist might call white slavery the anthropologist benignly labels "the exchange of women." Claude Levi-Strauss identifies the exchange of women as "a fundamental principle of kinship," with women acting as the units of exchange by which men established kinship ties and avoided constant warfare; hence Levi-Strauss argues that the traffic in women is nothing less than the foundation of civilization. [6] Alternatively, Marxists draw upon the concept of white slavery as a means of blurring the distinction between sexual and economic exploitation; the earliest use of the term actually refers to the exploitation of wage laborers by industrial capitalism. It is in this sense that Karl Marx argues that "prostitution is only a specific expression of the general prostitution of the labourer," and hence casts the capitalist as white slaver. [7]
   
This blurring of sexual and economic function was a critical component of the white slavery image. Speaking on behalf of the Ladies' National Association, formed to repeal the Contagious Diseases Acts, feminist-activist Mary Hume-Rothery used white slavery rhetoric to attack the subjection of women in marriage. Obliquely linking bourgeois marriage to prostitution, Hume-Rothery wrote that she would sooner see women risk starvation than "sell themselves, whether to wealthy husbands, or less eligible purchasers." [8] Frederick Engels used the same logic to argue that when a husband assumed control of a woman through marriage, "she became the slave of his lust and a mere instrument for the production of children." [9]
 
But in its most successful and long-lived formulation, white slavery has come to mean the kidnapping and sexual exploitation of women and children. This equation has retained most of the essential components and a good measure of its original emotional impact from the expression's earliest appearance in Victorian England. Many historians of prostitution, in fact, reproduce uncritically the stories which form the subject of this study; very few histories omit from their indices the categories "white slavery," "forced prostitution," or "traffic in women and children." [10] Clearly the rhetoric of white slavery, if not the actual practice, is still very much alive. [11]

From Wikipedia entry on White Slavery:
United States reaction
By the beginning of the 20th century, the term also came to mean the abduction of white girls into forced prostitution, and after about 1905 it was used for this definition almost exclusively. "White slavery" was the focus of a major moral panic in the United States at the end of the Progressive Era. Although sexual slavery did and still does occur, "white slavery" is usually used to refer to this moral panic, where there was a perception that this form of abuse was a danger to every young woman.

The United States White-Slave Traffic Act of 1910 prohibited so-called white slavery. It also banned the interstate transport of females for immoral purposes. Its primary stated intent was to address prostitution and immorality. The act is better known as the Mann Act, after James Robert Mann, an American lawmaker.

National columnist Kathleen Parker wrote today that 14,500-17,500 sex slaves are imported into the US each year!

http://www.orlandosentinel.com/news/opinion/columnists/orl-parker3007sep30,0,4177355.column

I posted the following after her article at the Orlando Sentinel:

Doesn't Ms. Parker research her facts at all?  The Washington Post caught the US government in some big lies last week regarding human trafficking statistics and the government admitted that the 14,500-17,500 sex slaves supposedly brought into the US each year is, well, just a made up number.  http://www.washingtonpost.com/wp-dyn/content/article/2007/09/22/AR2007092201401_pf.html

Does anyone who reads Ms. Parker really think that that many people could be working as slaves but none of them ever escape?  Let's see, that means that if we count all the slaves here for the last 20 years then there are as many as 350,000 slaves in the US and we've never read a single lurid, sensational story about their life in captivity by a yellow-journalist like Ms. Parker?

How do editors of newspapers allow crap like this to be published?
