As a former trial attorney and victim of parental alienation, I have seen first hand the corruption in our divorce and family courts which is leading to escalating carnage among parents, families and innocent children. I took a stand against my profession to end federal funding abuses and human rights violations here that together are causing a silent epidemic.
This epidemic is very real, but due to the lucrative nature of an antiquated child custody system, it is being highly censored in mainstream and social media. This is following the lead of the tobacco and drug industries which have yielded millions of victims with little or no accountability over the past five decades.
Despite full knowledge of the crises they promoted for profit, they went on with their carnage anyway by influencing lawmakers and oversight agencies to turn a blind eye with their astronomical campaign contributions (blood money). Today the same is occurring with Facebook, Twitter, Instagram, YouTube and other tech giants who are blocking vital exposures of this epidemic. They have been given free reign to control public thought through immunity laws given them by our government.
My case is a prime example. In 2013 my testimony before the Moreland Commission on Public Corruption resulted in a targeting of my law licenses, livelihood and parent-child relationships. In 2016 a family judge gag order on this blog site, http://www.leonkoziol. com, was removed after I challenged it in New York Supreme Court. The same kind of targeting impaired the Parenting Rights Institute. At one time we received thousands of public reactions to our postings. Today we receive only a few.
In May, 2019, I sponsored a three-day gathering entitled, Parent March on Washington. It featured valuable networking among parent activists from around the country, a lobby day in Congress, expert speakers at a hotel ballroom, a march down Pennsylvania Avenue between the White House and Capitol under police escort, and a candlelight vigil dedicated to the lives lost to this epidemic. No media showed up for any of these peaceful events, and the federal government elected to stay focused on party politics and parent-child separations at our borders.
On July 31, 2021, my latest book, Whistleblower in Paris, was published and made available at Barnes and Noble and major book sellers on-line. It received a 5-star rating on Amazon, but was quickly targeted with all sorts of suspicious impediments. It took two weeks to secure a costly advertisement in a New York newspaper promoting it. The ad was intended to inject real issues being ignored during a family judge election. In the end, it was published only on the day before election. The $1,200 cost was never pursued after weekend runs never occurred.
When I opened a YouTube channel and live talk show earlier this year, my ability to go live was eventually undermined when our message and followers began to grow. The same occurred on Facebook. Despite 5,000 followers accumulated over the years, many repeatedly informed me now that they are blocked from sharing my posts. This was particularly the case with a short video entitled “Hope for Alienated Parents during the Holidays.” A rapid-fire assault on corruption and carnage in these courts, it was released on December 20, 2021 and makes a highly convincing case for parents to stay out of profit-making litigation.
A December 18, 2021 petition on Change.org seeking federal action to end parental alienation has garnered only five signatures as of this posting in contrast with others, less compelling, that report thousands of supporters. My September 23, 2021 testimony before New York Governor Kathy Hochul’s Blue-Ribbon Commission on Forensic Custody Evaluations was blacked out on video with no logical explanation despite follow-up e-mails and phone calls.
While the list goes on, this level of suppression, censorship and targeting shows beyond doubt that my public message remains a threat to a gold mine in these courts. I will therefore continue to promote my December 20, 2021 holiday video above designed to give hope to victimized parents. I ask you to do so as well because I cannot do this alone. I have worked hard and sacrificed enough. It’s time for all of us to unite and take action of the kind I have itemized at the conclusion of that 12-minute video.
Yes, this crisis is real, and we cannot sit idle as the carnage grows around us. For more information, you can contact me directly at (315) 796-4000.
