At first blush in this headline one asks the question: what does Paris, ISIS and Thomas Ball have in common? Well we all know by now the first two involving the greatest terrorist strike upon France since World War II. But who is Thomas Ball?
Before answering that question, a profound irony must be emphasized regarding a nation which refused to participate in the war on terrorism which is now asking everyone else to join it in the eradication of ISIS. Meanwhile our own president refuses to participate.
Could it be that the targeting of the French president at a soccer game has Obama worried for his personal safety? Is it because he’s not in charge of the coordinated effort? Or is there something more ominous which the public is being denied access to?
Events of this past week continue to beg the question of whether we should be meddling into the affairs of foreign countries to incite these terrorist attacks. Viet Nam veterans are familiar with the Tonkin Bay scandal which escalated our involvement in a “conflict” that cost our nation over 58,000 men and 8 women.
Which brings us to Thomas Ball. This Viet Nam war veteran, committed dad and model citizen who traces his roots to the American Revolution, arrived at Family Court in Keene County, New Hampshire on June 15, 2011. It was anything but a court appointment which brought him there.
He was not there to surrender himself to a jail term for back child support. Instead he sat down in front of the courthouse, poured gas over his head and lit himself on fire to protest family court corruption and father discrimination. Imagine what it took to cause a man to resort to such non-court pain and suffering?
Thomas Ball was hoping to incite a civil rights revolution to parallel the one our government supported in the Middle East when only a few months earlier a man burned himself alive in Tunisia. It caused revolutions across the Arab world leading ultimately to the ISIS response in Paris.
But here in the states there was no government promotion of reform or sympathy for Thomas Ball. Instead it was just business as usual within days of this shocking event known as a “self-immolation.” It was a form of protest chosen in lieu of the mass carnage we see today.
Three articles are instructive here when Googling Thomas Ball: a June 16, 2011 local report by Free Keene, a June 20, 2011 article by Sovereign Man (foreign blog site decrying the lack of mainstream coverage of this horrific event) and a July 10, 2011 story in the Boston Globe which finally threw a bone for the fathers’ rights movement and the publicity it warranted.
What is significant about all this for purposes of Homeland Security is that Thomas Ball mailed to various media a manifesto of sorts demanding that family courts become the targets of violent rebellion. He even gave instructions on how to effectively deliver a Molotov cocktail to their corrupted chambers. You must read that manifesto, it will send chills down your home town spines.
Family court abuses are causing violent reactions all across America but because they have become a capitalist trillion dollar industry, government propaganda and a complicit mainstream media are suppressing public knowledge and accountability. We need go no further than our local family courts to prove this.
In my own home town, a police investigator exiting family court learned that he would have to survive on $28 per week after deductions for taxes, child support and other mandatory executions. Rather than continue under this oppression, he chose to take matters into his own hands, committing a murder-suicide with the ex-spouse leaving three children without parents.
Evidently the child support bill was never paid after that, instead the police department was blamed in federal court leaving taxpayers with a $2 million liability. It occurred despite confiscation of weapons and imposition of protection orders, see Pearce v Longo. The self crafted remedy was executed with a common kitchen knife.
This emasculation and criminalization of fatherhood in America through debtor prisons and socialist policies are leading to escalations in crime, immorality and child dysfunction. We see it increasingly in the mass killings at schools and public venues like those in Paris.
I visited numerous human rights agencies, offices and media including the AP in Paris. But because these family courts have become so lucrative in Western society, there are no government studies or reforms to this antiquated custody system of child governance.
To address the growing epidemic, I filed an extraordinary lawsuit in the federal appeals court in Manhattan seeking, among other things, a declaratory judgment invalidating this oppressive and discriminatory system of child control. Our followers went off the charts as a result.
As America’s military returns home to debtor prisons, child alienation practices and a money oriented court system, ISIS operatives are no doubt exploiting the injustices here to orchestrate their next attack. Like 9/11 we know it’s coming. The question is how, when and whether our government is drawing properly upon its own people to track it.
To that end I published a novel last year depicting how the next terrorist strike on our homeland could occur. It’s about a group of career woman on a private voyage across the Great Lakes who unwittingly foil such a plot. Full of intrigue, romance and humor it is titled “Voyage to Armageddon,” available at Barnes and Noble, Amazon and Lulu on-line bookstores.
I am also offering professional services to those who would like to publish their own court ordeals. Feel free to contact me at (315) 796-4000 if you have such an ordeal, and stay in contact for our next very exciting series here at Leon Koziol.com.
