Protester in Poland Burned Alive Like America’s Thomas Ball With Far Greater World Attention


Parental Rights are everyone’s concern

According to this week’s Associated Press, hundreds of people marched in the streets of Warsaw, Poland “to honor a man who set himself on fire to protest policies by Poland’s ruling (political) party.” He was protesting a destruction of the rule of law and democracy in the country. Sounds a lot like our government bureaucracy in Washington which is destroying parental liberties through the rule of money and taxation.

The article goes on to report that this human rights hero, Piotr Szczesny, a 54 year old chemist, “set himself on fire on Oct. 19 and died more than a week later… (leaving) a letter explaining that he was protesting a government (that was) limiting civil liberties, violating the constitution and making Poland an object of ridicule internationally.”

Wow! This Szczesny guy could be living here in America and making the same statement about our bureaucratic liberals, their incessant attacks on our duly elected president, and what they are doing in Washington to take away our human rights. Their socialist manifesto is the only form of free speech allowed in this country. Any other opinion will be suppressed, censored and discredited in the most ruthless manner.

Thomas Ball was a 58 year old American father whose family roots trace back to Mary Ball, the mother of George Washington (whose statues may soon be torn down by these same fanatic leftists). On June 15, 2011, he sat down quietly on the steps of a New Hampshire family court to protest child control practices which deprived him of contact with his offspring. He poured gas over his head, lit himself up and died almost instantly.

There were no street protests, no court reforms, no international news coverage, indeed this human holocaust barely made the Boston Globe. They merely washed his ashes into the sewer. Granted, he left a manifesto of his own urging people to firebomb these courts, but the constitutional violations he cited have only grown worse in our nation’s family courts (supported by federal Title IV-D funding).

Everyone is then aghast at the growing forms of domestic violence and mass murders occurring across the country, our most recent horrific event this past Sunday in a church no less. When citizens are deprived fair and just treatment in our courts of law, they will take their grievances to the streets, securing their own forms of justice. Until meaningful reforms occur in these “constitution-free” tribunals, that violence will only grow. There is no escaping it.

It is a rule of last resort when a good parent is turned evil in the face of a debtor prison for a parenting tax which has no accountability. Family courts hide this reality with propaganda such as “child support” and “custody awards.” To make this lucrative system work, one parent has to be marginalized, alienated or outright removed from his or her children’s lives. “Noncustodial parents” are actually paying for government’s seizure of their own offspring.

Shared parenting legislation is routinely crushed because it generates no revenue from our federal government and much less family controversy for lawyers to exploit. You will find no accountability from a self-regulating court system or investigative reporting because the rule of money controls our media through advertising and gutter politics have eclipsed common sense and human rights, leaving confused victims to self-help remedies.

Today is election day for family judge candidates throughout the country. In the upstate New York county of Oneida, a family judge race is on the ballot. There has been no debate on the real issues, only the standard fraud that “I’m doing this for our children” en route to a $2.5 million salary intake over the course of a ten year term (when looking at the graduating scale of increases set annually by a new “commission” in place of our Legislature).

This giant farce prompted me to pay for advertisements behind a write-in candidate, a sort of “none-of-the-above” protest against not only the perpetrators of this sick anti-family system but the selection process which leaves us with no real choices. Although I have received resounding support (as a former city corporation counsel and county executive candidate), it is unlikely that voters will make the quick trip and write in a preference (even though voting is free of charge).

There were only two ads in a single newspaper making the write-in suggestion, no signs, radio or television commercials. And there was no request to vote for me in particular. Hence no great expectations exist because there has never been a write-in candidate who made the voting radar here. But we can make a statement for reform and that depends on the victims taking action for their own sake.

Ironically, the family judge election is the lead race in this year’s off-season. Yet a look at the same newspaper’s election day editorial encouraging people to vote reveals a full range of local races highlighted. Not one mention is made of the family court race. Coincidental? Is it also coincidental that secondary and social media like this one, Leon, are being monitored and censored?

As Adolph Hitler once said in Mein Kampf, if you can convince the people that the state is looking out for their children, they will “happily” give up their rights. Kindly share this message, and as always, feel free to contact me at our office at (315) 380-3420 or my cell at (315) 796-4000. I will be in Manhattan again this week lobbying for a federal investigation of my ordeal, other horrific cases and family courts generally, but I will get back to as many callers that I can.


And if you don’t think there are a lot of angry moms and dads out there, here is one of many write-in votes being committed to me today. This one has no name, caller ID or presence on any of my contact lists. But to write me in with capital letters and a photo taken at the voting booth for proof, I have to feel good about it despite the overwhelming odds.

This addition to today’s post comes at 3:35 pm and election district records will show that I have not voted yet. I’m not sure how many of these write-ins they will recognize because I have no poll monitors, but it’s nice to see the boldness in commitment to my reform message.
