Stop Domestic Violence against children in Philippines

Philippine children are being refused protection by government agencies because of a lack of education of Republic Act 9262 (RA9262), and their misguided view or corruption; I have been told a child can only Prosecute their mother and be protected from their mother under RA9262 (Domestic Violence Law introduced in 2004 to protect children) for serious Domestic Violence if they are having a Sexual Relationship with their mother. This is ludicrous! The reference in the Law where the Perpetrator must be having a "dating or sexual relationship" with the mother, if the mother is the Victim, is to show it is a Domestic environment and not a stranger. It does not state in the Law that a child victim must be having a "dating or sexual relationship" with the Perpetrator, yet the Law is being twisted to give immunity from violent mothers who abuse children.  THE PROBLEM; In 2003 Bill 2723 was introduced into the Senate Sponsored by Senator Loi Estrada. A proposed law to stop "Domestic Violence". In the proposed new law and Bill 2723, the Victims were to be Women, Men, Children, and any other household member in a domestic situation. Terms such as "Sexual Partner" and "Sexual Relationship" were used to show a "Domestic Relationship" as it did not cover only married men and women, but all men and women in a domestic environment, married or not. The Law is not being followed by government departments and employees and the State are not following it's Guarantee to respect Human Rights of the Child.  THE CONFUSION; Under the proposed Bill 2723 / 2003 which became RA 9262; * A Woman could Charge and Prosecute a Man for Domestic Violence* A Woman could Charge and Prosecute a Child for Domestic Violence* A Man could Charge and Prosecute a Woman for Domestic Violence* A Man could Charge and Prosecute a Child for Domestic Violence* A Child could Charge and Prosecute a Man for Domestic Violence* A Child could Charge and Prosecute a Woman for Domestic Violence There was a proposed amendment by Senator Francis Pangilinan to Bill 2723 pushed by the woman's movement to focus on Women only, but a proposed amendment by Senator Sotto, to the proposed amendment by Senator Francis Pangilinan, left the Bill and proposed Law as "Women & Children", excluding Men as Victims. In the original Bill before the amendment removing "Men as Victims", a Child could Charge and Prosecute a Woman for Domestic Violence and by removing "Men" as Victims some believe that gave immunity for a Woman to be Prosecuted for Abusing a Child, which is clearly not the case.  Nothing in the amendment of removing Men's protection under the Bill changed this, yet so many uneducated government employees do not understand the law RA 9262, and how it was enacted. GUARANTEES BY THE STATE; In RA 9262 it even Guarantees the Rights of a Child to be protected from her mother or a woman; "RA 9262 SECTION 2. Declaration of Policy.- It is hereby declared that the State values the dignity of women and children and guarantees full respect for human rights. The State also recognizes the need to protect the family and its members particularly women and children, from violence and threats to their personal safety and security. Towards this end, the State shall exert efforts to address violence committed against women and children in keeping with the fundamental freedoms guaranteed under the Constitution and the Provisions of the Universal Declaration of Human Rights, the convention on the Elimination of all forms of discrimination Against Women, Convention on the Rights of the Child and other international human rights instruments of which the Philippines is a party."  By the "State" not educating their employees, they are failing on their Guarantee in RA 9262  SUPREME COURT RE: RULE ON VIOLENCE AGAINST WOMEN AND THEIR CHILDREN  RESOLUTION Acting on the report of the Committee on Revision of the Rules of Court submitting for this Court’s consideration and approval the Proposed Rule on Violence Against Women and Their Children, the Court Resolved to APPROVE the same. The Rule shall take effect on November 15, 2004 following its publication in a newspaper of general circulation not later than October 30, 2004. October 19, 2004. SEC. 3.  Objectives.—The objectives of this Rule are: (a)  To protect the rights of the family and its members particularly women and children from violence and threats to their personal safety and security; (b)  To enable the courts to manage and monitor cases involving violence against women and children and the members of their family or household; (c) To prevent any disruption in the daily lives of the offended parties and assist them to regain control of their lives; (d)  To ensure that treatment is provided for the offended parties and offenders; and (e) To hold the offenders accountable for their acts. SEC. 4. Definitions.—As used in this Rule: (a) “Violence against women and their children” refers to any act or a series of acts committed by any person against a woman who is his wife, former wife, or a woman with whom the person has or had a dating or sexual relationship, or with whom he has a common child, or against her child whether legitimate or illegitimate, within or without the family abode, which result in or is likely to result in physical, sexual, psychological harm or suffering, or economic abuse including threats of such acts, battery, assault, coercion, harassment or arbitrary deprivation of liberty. (b) “Children” refers to persons below eighteen years of age or older but are unable to fully take care of themselves from abuse, neglect, cruelty, exploitation or discrimination because of a physical or mental disability or condition.  It includes the biological children of the offended party and other children under her care.

This has now been determined by the Court a Child can Avail remedies under RA 9262 against a woman, and is now Law.  I should not have no argue with Government departments when a Court of the Philippines has determined that a Child can Avail RA 9262 against a woman or their mother. I should not have to argue with uneducated Government departments when seeking Criminal remedies under RA 9262.   URGENT RECOMMENDATIONS The State should educate all Government Departments and their employees that Children are Protected under RA 9262 from Domestic Violence committed by a women in a domestic environment, whether there mother of not, and follow the Guarantee of the State under RA 9262 to uphold the Human Rights of Children, and follow the determination by the Court of the Philippines in my Ruling. It is the Role of the Government to educate and train person involved; "RA 9262 SECTION 42". Training of Persons Involved in Responding to Violence Against Women and their Children Cases. – All agencies involved in responding to violence against women and their children cases shall be required to undergo education and training to acquaint them with: a. the nature, extend and causes of violence against women and their children; b. the legal rights of, and remedies available to, victims of violence against women and their children; c. the services and facilities available to victims or survivors; d. the legal duties imposed on police officers to make arrest and to offer protection and assistance; and e. techniques for handling incidents of violence against women and their children that minimize the likelihood of injury to the officer and promote the safety of the victim or survivor.The PNP, in coordination with LGU's shall establish an education and training program for police officers and barangay officials to enable them to properly handle cases of violence against women and their children. MY SUFFERINGI should not have to suffer because the State has not educated their employees. I have been abused enough physically and psychologically in my life by my mother including two attempts on my life and I am now being abused by the State in their ignorance and the law not being followed.

Petition to United Nations, Donald J. Trump, U.S. Senate

Demand the United Nations Investigate the Murder of Jamal Khashoggi

Just over two weeks ago, Saudi dissident and Washington Post journalist Jamal Khashoggi vanished after going into the Saudi consulate in Istanbul. His disappearance has now evolved into a full-blown international crisis. Throughout it all, the Saudi government’s official line keeps shifting as the world waits for answers. From the New York Times:"Mr. Khashoggi, 60, a Washington Post columnist whose disappearance has caused an international uproar and deeply tarnished the Saudi government’s image, entered the consulate at about 1:15 p.m. He was never seen leaving. The Turkish government has been leaking details in the domestic press that suggest that a 15-member hit team from Saudi Arabia, including Mr. Mutreb, assassinated Mr. Khashoggi inside the consulate, severing his fingers and decapitating and dismembering him."The New York Times has published a timeline trail of clues related to this horrible story:https://www.nytimes.com/interactive/2018/10/09/world/middleeast/jamal-khashoggi-timeline.htmlThe president of the United States, Donald J. Trump has floated scenarios like 'rogue agents' to the Saudis. Mr. Trump and his organization have deep business ties with the Saudis going back for decades. Secretary of State Pompeo traveled to Riyadh Tuesday, October 16 for what amounted to a quick photo op with Mohammed bin Salman, the crown prince who is suspected of ordering Khashoggi's torture, dismemberment and murder. The two were photographed and videotaped laughing and joking. The kingdom transferred $100 million to the United States shortly after Pompeo's visit. Serious and suspicious items have come to light regarding the 'alleged' torture and murder of Jamal Khashoggi. A most disturbing interview with Mr. Khashoggi on Egyptian TV has surfaced. The interview contains statements "revealing classified deal between Trump and the Royal king of Saudi Arabia to take money from Royal Prince Al-Waleed bin Talal to bail him self out after being arrested for corruption the money end up to Trump / Kushner weapon deal." A NY Times piece regarding a close aide to Mohammed bin Salman photographed entering and leaving the consulate where Mr. Khashoggi was last seen references multiple human rights organizations seeking a proper investigation by the United Nations: "In another sign of growing pressure on the Saudis, a coalition of human-rights and press-freedom advocacy groups said Thursday that Turkey should seek an independent United Nations investigation into Mr. Khashoggi’s disappearance and possible killing. The coalition included the Committee to Protect Journalists, Human Rights Watch, Amnesty International and Reporters Without Borders. “U.N. involvement is the best guarantee against a Saudi whitewash or attempts by other governments to sweep the issue under the carpet to preserve lucrative business ties with Riyadh,” Robert Mahoney, deputy executive director of the Committee to Protect Journalists, said in a statement. It was unclear at best, however, when or if a United Nations inquiry would be undertaken. Asked about that possibility at a daily briefing, Stéphane Dujarric, a spokesman for Secretary General António Guterres, suggested it was premature. Mr. Guterres believes in “taking things one step at a time,” Mr. Dujarric said. The secretary general also had made clear to both Saudi Arabia and Turkey that the facts surrounding the Khashoggi case need to come out, Mr. Dujarric said."We believe Jamal Khashoggi died in that consulate. He was in there alone, we believe, at the mercy of 15 agents dispatched by the crown prince, Mohammed bin Salman who brought a bone saw with them. This petition is demanding justice for a human being who dedicated his life to a better world. This is Jamal Khashoggi's last column."What the Arab World Needs Most is Free Expression"

Please assist me in fighting for my life against this corrupt justice system..deshawnausler@yahoo.com417-365-8818 IT IS NOT ENOUGH TO ALLEGE OR SHOW THAT OUR RIGHTS ARE ILLEGALLY AND CORRUPTLY VIOLATED?!?(Leagle.comSTATE v. AUSLER 3:17-CR-30003. STATE OF ARKANSAS, Plaintiff, v. ANTONIO AUSLER), Defendant.United States District Court, W.D. Arkansas, Harrison Division.April 27, 2017.Attorney(s) appearing for the Case State of Arkansas, Plaintiff, represented by Wes Bradford, Deputy Prosecuting Attorney.OPINION AND ORDER P.K. HOLMES, III, Chief District Judge,Taken as true, the facts alleged in the notice of removal and which can be inferred in Ausler's favor from the remaining attached documents do not demonstrate that Ausler has been denied or cannot enforce in the State courts of Arkansas any federal rights provided under any law providing for equal civil rights.It is not enough to support removal under § 1443(1) to allege or show that the defendant's federal equal civil rights have been illegally and corruptly denied by state administrative officials in advance of trial, that the charges against the defendant are false, or that the defendant is unable to obtain a fair trial in a particular state court. The motives of the officers bringing the charges may be corrupt, but that does not show that the state trial court will find the defendant guilty if he is innocent, or that in any other manner the defendant will be `denied or cannot enforce in the courts' of the State any right under a federal law providing for equal civil rights. The civil rights removal statute does not require and does not permit the judges of the federal courts to put their brethren of the state judiciary on trial. Under § 1443. Assuming Ausler's federal equal civil rights have been or are being denied him in the Circuit Court of Boone County, he makes no allegation or showing that the appellate courts of Arkansas would similarly deny him his rights. One week after this order from the federal court, I was coerced and forced by my Attorney Lee Short out of Little Rock Arkansas, The Circuit Court Judge in Harrison Arkansas and the Prosecutor Wesley Bradford to accept a plea to crimes that the federal court had found to be false. The plea was for 10 years probation with a 16 year back up, meaning that any time in 10 years they can set me up again and send me to prison for 16 years from that day... I wanted a trial and the day I was forced to plead guilty to crimes manufactured by the state was my first day of jury selection. The jury had not even been selected, there were up to 60 people sitting in the court listening to my lawyer tell me that if i did not sign the plea I could fight it from the inside, but I would be sentenced to 17 years that day, at jury selection.. We have no one fighting for us and they are hanging us right in your faces.. https://youtu.be/8P3jRq8BwpAhttps://youtu.be/HxKYSxbK3EQhttps://youtu.be/laCCJdEIvnY
