Join our follow-up Lobby Day to the Parent March on Washington set for next Thursday, June 20th

Parenting Rights Institute

Participants in our Parent March on Washington have obtained inquiries from those offices we visited during our May 2nd Lobby Day of our Parent March on Washington. Upon reviewing our reports, some staffers have noted that they were unaware of the epidemic we outlined in our nation’s divorce and family courts.

This means that we cannot sit on our recent progress. We must follow-up and continue our plan of action with regional rallies such as the one I am organizing for upstate New York during the first week of October.

We are also returning to Washington next Thursday for a follow-up Lobby Day. Any interested parents, court victims or group advocates are welcome to join us. We will be staying at the Harrington Hotel and meeting in the breakfast buffet room at 8 a.m. that morning. There is much more in the works. Look up our professional offerings at http://www.parentingrightsinstitute.com or call our office at (315) 380-3420.

Kindly help us spread the word.

Parent March on Washington goes viral with this precedent-setting video: Moms and Dads speak out like never before !

By Dr. Leon Koziol

Parenting Rights Institute

As promised, the Parent March on Washington has been memorialized on this Memorial Day Weekend with an inspiring video completed today. And it’s going viral beyond our wildest expectations.

It was produced by Philadelphia Attorney Lawrence DeMarco who dropped everything to attend our three-day event on May 1-3, 2019. An outstanding 15 minute production, there has never been anything like it in parent rights history.

If this does not motivate you to action, nothing will, not even the fees that you spend into bankruptcy trying to protect your children. Take as much time as you can now to make this video viral, do it for the sake of your own children and families, for the sake of suicide prevention, for the sake of future generations.

Our March lives on! Already I have addressed permit requirements with the New York State Police and Department of Transportation for our first follow-up regional march in upstate New York on October 3 and 4, 2019. A motorcade from Fort Drum to Utica, New York along State Route 12 will commemorate veterans lost to suicide and premature death as a result of a dysfunctional family court system.

On that evening we will feature the next round of expert speakers at a hotel conference room in Utica, New York. On Friday, October 4, 2019, we will march from the Oneida County Family Court a distance that is less than half of the one we completed in our nation’s capital. It will end at the Utica city courthouse where we will demand the removal or resignation of the following:

Syracuse Administrative Judge James Tormey

Watertown Supreme Court Judge James McClusky

Oswego County Family Judge James Eby

Lewis County Family Judge Daniel King

Utica City Judge Gerald Popeo

I am already recruiting the numbers locally to make this happen, and you need to do the same in your own communities based on the precedent we set in Washington. Like Operation Greylord in Chicago where nearly 100 judges, lawyers, clerks and deputies were arrested and convicted, family courts have become a corrupt institution as detailed in my report entitled Federal Funded Epidemic.

That report was distributed throughout Congress on May 2nd, and is now being submitted to school district superintendents throughout my congressional district as part of my ongoing lobby campaign. You need to do the same and join us to grow regional protests across the country.

System beneficiaries will continue to upstage our efforts, and you may think that your lone contribution will mean little, but it took a single dad who violated the law by bringing his daughter to a school in Topeka, Kansas which ended school segregation forever. Parent discrimination, alienation and family court corruption are harming our schools like never before. It’s time we ended it now!

Jurassic Justice: A highly acclaimed video by a mom and dad victimized by parental alienation in our courts

By Dr. Leon Koziol

Parenting Rights Institute

In order to bring greater awareness and overdue reform to our nation’s divorce and family courts, I completed a book manuscript for a mother victimized by parental alienation and court corruption in Montgomery County, Pennsylvania. Entitled “Jurassic Justice,” an ongoing ordeal has prevented its publication. Meanwhile I completed and published my own shocking ordeal as a judicial whistleblowing lawyer entitled, Satan’s Docket. You can order a hard copy or download a PDF version at http://www.parentingrightsinstitute.com.

When Tamara Sweeney and I completed her book manuscript, we decided to do a homemade video to promote it. It was a spontaneous thing that came out miraculously well. It was not choreographed or directed by Ridley Scott but came out as if it was professionally created without all the costs and frills. It is being reproduced here because every mom and dad victimized by these courts should learn the background and signs of parental alienation with a goal stamping it out before it gets malignant.

In follow-up to our highly successful Parent March on Washington earlier this month, we must contact the members of Congress we visited on Lobby Day so that our hard work is not in vain. We must also prepare regional protests in their congressional districts. I am currently planning one in upstate New York in the wake of a 70,000 signature petition demanding the removal of a judge here. It will be the largest protest yet set for late September. We’re not just talking about the problems. We’re an action group doing something about it. I will be getting the band back together for this one starting with conference calls and a new access code next week.

In the meantime, I will continue to post this short video which accurately depicts the epidemic that we are all fighting together. It is important that you do everything you can to make this video viral because we are being suppressed and censored by a trillion dollar industry. You can e-mail me directly at leonkoziol@gmail.com or call our PRI office at (315) 380-3420. And PLEASE donate to our cause on this site, http://www.leonkoziol.com. We took a big loss on the last event but it was well worth the investment for the sake of victimized parents, families and children everywhere.

 

Next March Planned for Upstate New York after a 70,000 Signature Petition Seeks Removal of Judge James McClusky

By Dr. Leon Koziol

Parenting Rights Institute

On the heels of a highly successful Parent March on Washington and Congressional Lobby Initiative which I was able to put together in less than three months, I promised my followers a next step which I hope will ignite similar (regional) marches and protests across the country.

I am focused on a motorcade from Fort Drum in northern New York to Utica, New York with a protest seeking a removal of four judges in addition to Judge James McCluskey of Watertown, New York. I have a sufficient local following to make this happen but welcome all from around the country who want to keep our momentum going.

The motorcade is designed to draw attention to the veterans who have committed suicides as a result of family court abuses, see i.e. Purple Heart’s Final Beat, Second Class Citizen.Org. Fort Drum is among the largest military installations in the country charged with training and mobilization of all active services. In 1959, it was the site of Agent Orange experiments which later prevented healthy births for Vietnam veterans.

Fort Drum exists in New York’s Fifth Judicial District which has become a hotbed of judge misconduct. Corruption here is being ignored or glossed over by a state judicial commission dominated by lawyers. Over a 12-year period, all of my 30-plus complaints have failed to produce a single inquiry without explanation. Such vast inaction only encourages more misconduct.

Adding to the corruption, certain judges here are being allowed to retaliate against judicial whistle blowers. It is a shameless abuse of judicial office with my ordeal as a quintessential example. If they can do this to a prominent civil rights attorney and model parent, imagine what they will do to you.

For example, one of my custody judges, Gerald Popeo, was merely given a public censure by this commission in 2015 despite being found guilty of making racial slurs to an African-American attorney. He referred to a prosecutor as a “cigar store Indian,” threatened to come off the bench to assault a litigant for giving him a “smirk,” and he jailed men for contempt in violation of their due process rights. How much more misconduct is required for removal?

Because he was not removed, he managed to get assigned to my family court matters (as a city judge!). Among so many other abuses, he failed to provide a child support hearing transcript for appeal which showed a $45,500 fraud (2015 payment never credited to me by the state’s child support collection center). Instead, he issued a support warrant with a near fatal outcome after blaming me for that public censure at a local bar.

Now comes a judge who I sued last year for a continued abuse of my reform work as a judicial whistle blower. Judge James McClusky refused to give any jail time for a 26-year old bus driver who was found guilty of raping a 14-year old girl earlier this year. Over 70,000 signatures have already been obtained seeking his removal in only a few months.

McClusky’s boss, Administrative Judge James Tormey, heads the Fifth Judicial District, but he is playing politics with accountability that litigants rightfully demand. For example, his chief family court clerk recovered $600,000 against him (and my pedophile custody judge Bryan Hedges) in a civil rights case due to retaliation against her for refusing to engage in “political espionage,” see Morin v Tormey, 626 F.3d 40 (2nd Cir. 2010).

As victims, we need to join forces to bring accountability to this judicial district. We need to make an example here so that other regions of our country will do the same. We have reports delivered and discussed with members of Congress during our May 2nd Lobby Day which seek a federal investigation of human rights abuses in these courts. We must now make follow-up calls to those members before they sweep it aside like so many others on the subject.

There will be no conference call tonight after my efforts to unveil this “next step” was upstaged by a pair of “moles and trolls.” Those interruptions have been recorded and reported. In the meantime, I have been given a new access code with the same call number. Just contact me for that code if you wish to participate in our continuing reform effort. You can call the Parenting Rights Institute at (315) 380-3420 or e-mail me at leonkoziol@gmail.com.

Finally, after taking a $5,000 loss on a March and Lobby event valued in excess of $50,000 (if sponsored by a special interest), I continue to seek donations and product purchases on my website, http://www.leonkoziol. com. That site will continue to serve as an information source. Please spread the word.

Parent March on Washington: A Grand Finale With Police Escort of Participants Down Pennsylvania Avenue. Celebration Conference Call Monday 7PM EST

IMG_0924

By Dr. Leon Koziol

Parenting Rights Institute

Given what we had to work with only two weeks ago, a $475 budget, the Parenting Rights Institute produced the most successful parental rights event known in our nation’s capital. For those who did not come, you missed out on history. For those who did, you got great satisfaction, new friendships and something for your personal scrapbooks to last a lifetime, exactly as I promised three months ago when this all began.

For those who did not know about this event, your opportunity lies in the future of our movement which this March has galvanized to unprecedented levels. The events were conducted exactly as I laid out in my 3-day itinerary beginning with a caravan from Liberty State Park in New Jersey. We went from small numbers in drizzly weather to a peak performance in beautiful sunny weather at our nation’s Capitol Building.

To get a sense of what you missed, roughly 100 aggrieved moms and dads converged in front of the White House on May 3, 2019 to demand an investigation of America’s family courts and the human rights violations caused by federal funding abuses in those courts. Our goal was to shift national focus from the Mueller Report and the parent-child separations at our borders to those occurring daily to American parents in our family courts here at home.

After one hour of messages conveyed through bullhorns, banners and signage, and not to mention a permit granted by the National Park Service weeks earlier that included our message, a group exited from inside the White House to view our event.We definitely captured the attention of tourist groups and passers-by. I was veritably impressed with the speeches and First Amendment activity at the start of our March in Lafayette Square Park. Everything was non-vulgar and non-violent as I required.

Then, at 1 pm, we left that venue, and as we approached the avenues of Washington D.C. under the separate jurisdiction of the Metropolitan Police, three police cars and two motorcycles lit up their emergency lights to escort us down Pennsylvania Avenue for the 2 mile trip to the Capitol and Supreme Court. Now you have to imagine this for awhile before reading on.

The entire three lane eastbound Pennsylvania Avenue (not just one lane as originally promised)  was cleared just for our March. When was the last time you took control of the most prominent thoroughfare in the world? As we arrived at the Capitol, it got better. We were escorted across the other side of the Avenue to enter the Capitol grounds for the continuation of our March. Here the third jurisdiction took control of our procession, the Capital Park Police. At one point during that cross-over, all six lanes of Pennsylvania Avenue was ours.

The fragrance of diverse flowers greeted us as we were directed onto the large pedestrian walkway under perfect weather conditions, 82 degrees and sunny with a feeling of the tropics as we continued. Our message was necessarily clear, simple and repetitive. Three questions from our March leaders with three answers from March participants which captivated office workers on lunch breaks, tourists eager to see such displays and member of Congress who were put on notice of this March during our lobbying campaign the day before. I think I still hear us all in my dreams:

“Who are we?”

“American Parents!”

“What do we want?”

“An investigation!”

“When do we want it?”

“Now!”

Thanks to Glenn Svobota, whose voice was nearly gone by the time we reached our 2-mile destination, this message resonated so that it did not get lost with the countless others that have diluted rallies sponsored by other groups. More importantly, our message resonated while Congress was in session (as opposed to the summer events I’ve attended). We made two stops along the way in front of the Justice Department Building and Supreme Court where one of our participants, Dr. Anthony Pappas, had a case pending there focused on court corruption.

We ended the March on the Capitol grounds across the street from the Supreme Court where a sound system was provided for speakers. All were given the opportunity to present their ordeals and petitions to be included in a documentary being produced by Philadelphia Attorney Lawrence DeMarco. So effective was our message that inquiring tourists were anxious to buy our yellow tee-shirts with the bold letters “Parent March on Washington.”

I was honored to lead this March down Pennsylvania Avenue in my favorite blue NYPD shirt accompanied on my side by Super Bowl winner Jamie Brown of the NFL Denver Broncos. Jamie was one of our parade marshals who reported that this March was more rewarding than the one he was given for his Super Bowl victory.

After a celebration at the Capitol Grill Restaurant, our three-day event concluded at the premier location for events, Area One in front of the Capitol with the Washington Monument in the opposite background. Here we conducted a Candle Light Vigil in memory of veterans, parents and children lost to suicide, parent alienation and premature death. It was led by Steven Boyd and his family (Gabriella Boyd Foundation) who lost a two year old child to this family court epidemic

Sadly, over 100 candles prepaid by Kim Durkee never arrived after she fell ill during one of our conference calls and was rushed to the hospital. The man who promised to make her delivery never showed. It was one of our few let-downs, but we made up for it by using our i-phone lights. We were rewarded as the evening progressed when the Capitol itself lit up in a manner that looked like candles across its stately edifice. We promptly shifted our position to yield a very special photo of this grand 3-day affair.

At our rally on Friday afternoon, participants asked that I continue our Monday and Thursday Conference calls so that we can “capitalize” on our success here and grow the movement. Hopefully this time next year we will produce thousands in Marching numbers with meaningful reforms.

I would like all callers who came to our events to announce what they liked best about their experience. It might be something you observed of the viewers along our parade route or a special statement by one of our expert speakers at the Congressional Ballroom. We will close tomorrow’s call with ideas on where we go from here. It’s the same number and access code when prompted (605) 313-4165. Access code: 763491.

Early in today’s “Meet and Greet”

Arrivals gathering their lobby packets for Congress

Our three day Parent March on Washington officially began today with a drizzly, low turn-out at Liberty State Park, New Jersey. The first ever American Parent Caravan nevertheless made its four hour trip without incident to Washington, just in time for our “Meet and Greet” at the 21st Century Lounge at the Holiday Inn Capitol, 550 C Street SW, only a few blocks down from the Capitol Building.We will gather there again tomorrow at 5 pm for a social exchange (and war stories regarding our Lobby Day.

Traffic, confusion and the hustle of our great capital city did not deter participants. Some victims left stranded without gas in nearby states were wired the money to get them here by caring fellow victims. A jazz singer greeted attendees as they socialized, networked and strategized for our next day Lobby initiative in the Senate and House office buildings.

Beginning at 7 pm at the Congressional Ballroom, attendees were then treated to a crash course in lobby techniques with over 600 lobby packets for distribution to every member of Congress. People were still coming in to pick them up long after the session ended. Parent advocates in the movement for many years did not waste time as they conducted an assembly line of packet production at the head table. Meetings have already been scheduled with members of Congress.

Events were video recorded by Attorney Lawrence DeMarco who set up a studio in the same hotel for interviews. These will eventually be compiled in a documentary of the Parent March on Washington. Tomorrow he will be tracking moms and dads as they visit congressional offices to announce our March the next day and demands for a federal investigation of human rights abuses in our nation’s divorce and family courts.

More arrivals were calling in for the May 2nd and 3rd events with a Speakers Event tomorrow night (May 2nd) at the same Congressional Ballroom beginning at 7 pm. A regular who’s-who of experts in law, politics, education and psychology will give you invaluable insights on this Federal Funded Epidemic. That’s the title of our main lobby report available here in its entirety on our Scribd page.

By popular demand one group who missed the strategy session will meet for updates at the Harrington Hotel breakfast buffet room, 436 11th Street at 9 am (although Holiday Inn Capitol continues to be our headquarters). All are welcome before heading off to Congress. We also hope to gather again at 1:30 pm at the Longworth Congressional Building Cafeteria for lunch discussions.

While all this was occurring on the battlefront, Attorney Susan Settenbrino and others back home were urging media to report on our events. Our Main event is Friday with a March beginning at 1 pm at Lafayette Square Park in front of the White House with a police escort down an entire lane of Pennsylvania Avenue to the Capitol. There, all participants are invited to address our group at a second (outdoor) speaking event.

A forecast of sunny and 85 degrees is predicted for that day. An evening candle light vigil is planned in front of the Capitol for 7:30 pm in memory of  those who have been lost to suicide, parent alienation and premature death. Get on the phones. Car pool your way down, call your representatives from home and keep contacting media until they finally recognize that American parents get priority over the illegal ones at our borders.

Parent March on Washington, May 1-3, 2019: Final Itinerary

 

Parent March on Washington

A 3-Day Event Promoting a Federal Investigation of Human Rights Violations and Funding Abuses in Divorce and Family Courts

Wednesday, May 1, 2019 – American Parent Caravan: 10 am, Liberty State Park, Jersey City ending at the Beltway, Washington D.C. Bikers, vehicles and truckers will make a 4-5 hour ride along I-95 to shift national focus to parents wrongfully separated from their children in our own courts.

At 5 pm, Meet and Greet at 21st Amendment Lounge, Holiday Inn Capitol, 550 C Street SW followed by a 7pm Strategy Session at the Congressional Ballroom in the same hotel to receive and assign lobby packets for Lobby Day.

Thursday, May 2, 2019 – Lobby Day: Participants will deliver lobby packets and converge on congressional office buildings. Others will attend prearranged meetings with their representatives and staffers.

At 7 pm, at the same Congressional Ballroom a few blocks from Congress, a Speaker’s event will occur followed by a progress report of Lobby Day. Admission is free but seating may become limited.

Friday, May 3, 2019 – Parent March on Washington:

Noon- Marchers will begin assembling at Lafayette Square Park on the north side of the White House. Our message there is a request of the president to order a Justice Department investigation of human rights violations in family courts which receive federal funds. We are also requesting a shared parenting bill. At 1 pm, the March begins with a police escort down an entire lane of Pennsylvania Avenue to Constitution Ave NE, a right turn onto First Street where the Supreme Court is located.

The March will conclude across from that court at Area 10 behind the Capitol. There a rally will occur with speakers relating their ordeals to media. A major focus at the rally is parental alienation. Get updated information at www.leonkoziol.com or our Facebook Page, Parent March on Washington. You can also call Leon’s cell number at (315) 796-4000. A Candle Light Vigil will end our event at Area One on the west side of the Capitol at 7:30 pm.

The following video is short but sweet regarding a mom and dad victimized by parental alienation. Completed spontaneously in Montgomery County, Pennsylvania in 2016, it has generated interest all across America. It presents an ideal summary of what we are trying to correct in Washington.

We need you now, while there’s still time, to reach out to victims everywhere to make the trip to Washington for long overdue reforms on May 3rd. Now is the time to make a difference. An opportunity like this may may not come again for decades. You need to make the cold calls, reach out to family and fellow court victims, especially in the D.C. area to get people down to this Friday’s March.
