To the hundred whistleblowers at Parent March on Washington: You have been given a moral imperative to contact Congressman Adam Schiff. Ask why he ignored our Whistleblower Report delivered to Congress on May 2nd?

Open Hearing with Acting Director of National Intelligence on Whistleblower Complaint against Donald Trump for impeachment purposes

It’s an outrage! This past week, House Intelligence Committee Chairman Adam Schiff went on a crusade to protect whistleblowers. According to a slew of righteous public statements, he condemned President Donald Trump and the Intelligence Community for failing to submit a whistleblower report to Congress in a timely fashion.

That report had already been found to be a politically biased concoction authored by a person who had not even been a part of the events he was complaining about, namely, an alleged attempt by Trump to influence a Ukraine president to investigate Joe Biden’s son in his country.

The Justice Department had already investigated that report and found it to lack merit. But Chairman Schiff jumped at the opportunity to praise the whistleblower for impeachment purposes prior to receiving that report. President Trump, preoccupied at a United Nations Conference, promised it to him the next day.

When the actual report proved dubious, Schiff began back-pedaling, even mimicking Trump in a made-up version of events that was woefully short of Alec Baldwin’s talent. Schiff took even more heat on his re-written version of the facts. This is how desperate and divided our leaders have become in Washington.

But that’s only the background and not the purpose for this post. Chairman Schiff focused on the right of all whistleblowers, no matter his position or accuracy, to reach Congress with their reports. His speeches were profound but his sincerity was non-existent given the hundred whistleblowers who converged on Washington for our Parent March on Washington this past May.

Parents from all over the country helped put together a lobby packet on May 1st to deliver to every member of Congress the next day. It featured a Judicial Whistleblower report entitled:

“Federal Funded Epidemic: Vital Report Justifying a Federal Investigation of Human Rights Abuses in Divorce and Family Courts.”

An entire section of that report was devoted to judicial whistleblower protection. I personally headed a contingent from New York which met with key staffers in the conference room of Senate Leader Chuck Schumer on May 2nd. It included a doctor, university professor and experts in the field of court reform. We were promised a reply to the reports we delivered that day.

I delivered an earlier one directly to Senate Judiciary Committee Chair Lindsay Graham and discussed it with him outside his committee hearing room. Other whistleblowers did the same with their own disclosures with their own representatives. Yet not a single member or staffer has replied to this day.

So what do we conclude from all this? Is Chairman Schiff a fraud? Is the call for whistleblower protection on the part of these same members of Congress a giant hypocrisy? Is political narrative the standard for deciding which Americans are important to our representatives?

The 500-plus reports we delivered to every office of Congress, backed by a march with police escort the next day down Pennsylvania Avenue, provided an overwhelming statement to Congress. Indeed you could not get more “in-your-face” than that from a true grass-roots perspective.

We weren’t backed by any political party, special interest or impeachment agenda. We were there to report an epidemic caused by the disregard of crisis-level issues such as parental alienation, abuse of federal funds and court induced suicides.

Since our march, events have occurred which have bolstered our cause and we must act on them or lose the momentum. On August 7, 2019, I filed a precedent-seeking case in New York Supreme Court. Two weeks later, New York’s top attorney, Attorney General Letitia James, moved my case to federal court.

Three weeks after that, a federal appeals court handed down a precedent decision which gave a green light to a father to challenge abusive child support enforcement tactics that were violating federal law. I have reviewed that case to conclude that it supports my case in a more profound way. I will report on it soon.

Now comes an opportunity to turn our efforts into results by contacting members of Congress to shed light on the Schiff Hypocrissy. Now you have a profound duty, certainly within your personal ability at home to accomplish, by calling on Schiff and his colleagues to make good their rhetoric by holding a hearing on our reports.

Our time is now. Don’t squander it with apathy or excuses. We all talked the talk in Washington. Now it’s time to walk the walk. Why did our representatives ignore one of the most pressing issues of our day that we carried to their very doorsteps? Do your part now while time allows, contact the media, spread the word or call us at PRI office (315) 380-3420.

A 24-page report has been completed and will be the main component of our lobby packet to Congress and Justice Department on Lobby Day, May 2, 2019. That’s the middle day of our 3-day Parent March on Washington. Click here for itinerary and purpose.

This report details how federal funds are being abused by divorce and family courts to cause parental alienation and human rights violations. It contains highly valuable information based on my 23 years as a practicing attorney in these courts, 12 years as an abused parent, and 10 years as a whistleblower victim.

A federal investigation, congressional oversight hearing, Shared Parenting Law and Judicial Whistleblower Protection Act are among the recommendations being made. It is now available at no cost by e-mailing me at leonkoziol@gmail.com or viewing it here. That link will soon be provided.

This report should be used to request meetings on Lobby Day with your representatives and contacts in Washington. Here is an opening excerpt:

A FEDERAL FUNDED EPIDEMIC

Vital Report Justifying a Federal Investigation of Human Rights Abuses in Divorce and Family Courts

While our federal government struggles with illegal parents separated from their children at our borders, American parents are being separated daily and without accountability in family courts across our country. Under federal law, a “custodial parent” is mandated for states to qualify for billions of dollars in performance grants, Dept of Family v DHHS, 588 F.3d 740 (1st Cir. 2009). This, in turn, undermines shared parenting laws and cooperation, i.e. Bast v Rossoff, 91 NY2d 723 (1998)(attorney parents’ agreement struck down for failure to name a “custodial parent”).

Under Title IV-D of the Social Security Act, 42 USC Section 658(a), state courts earn vast amounts of revenues from our federal government through performance grants based on the number and size of child support orders issued and satisfied. Not only does this create an inherent and systemic bias among ostensibly impartial jurists, it incites needless conflict between parents forced into an oppositional framework for deciding custody, support and other disputes.

Originally intended to recoup aid to needy families from absentee fathers, Title IV-D was later expanded to encompass all “non-custodial parents,” good and bad. By lumping them together, federal funding was thereby increased exponentially. Such a performance-based program proved highly ineffective on common sense grounds alone. Parents who love their children will use their God-given liberties to advance the interests of their offspring. Instead, natural human incentives are countermanded and replaced by a rigid control structure for money generating purposes.

Federal money thrown at divorce and family courts in this way has become the proverbial gas thrown on a fire. As veteran family judges have observed, this oppositional framework leads to a winner-take-all contest that draws the worst from parents at a time when children need their best. One example is the case of Webster v Ryan, 729 NYS2d 315 (Fam. Ct. 2001) at fn 1, where “parenting time” was preferred over “custody” and “visitation” due to a system which has “outlived its usefulness.” Such terms are more appropriate for prisons and funerals, but their use here causes judges to treat parents as criminals and objects of exploitation for federal funds.

Title IV-D protects this antiquated “custody” framework derived from a day when moms were caretakers and dads were the breadwinners. From that outdated framework, an epidemic has emerged which is producing escalating harm to government, families and society as a whole. It is a silent epidemic suppressed by special interests and bar associations which benefit from custody and support battles. Federal funds have induced states to seize parental authority beyond the rational limits of the judges and lawyers they license to regulate family relationships.

The separation here is not the simple product of divorcing or separated parents. It is an insidious form of separation, far worse than the kind experienced by immigrants, because children are being programmed to ignore, even hate their parents, for the principal purpose of generating lawyer profits and court revenues. Worse yet, it is done every day without so much as a pause from federal lawmakers who, knowingly or not, funded the parent-child separations. The end result is a panoply of societal ills that have elevated government programs and taxpayer burdens.

This insidious form of separation has become understood as “Parental Alienation.” That term derives from the work of Dr. Richard Gardner, an American child psychologist who produced books and studies to show a condition known as Parent Alienation Syndrome or PAS. This condition emerged from custody and support wars featuring one or both parents abusing our courts for reasons other than the “best interests of children.” By removing the “non-custodial parent” from children’s lives, the alienator and courts guarantee a support and revenue stream.

It has become a pay-to-parent scandal, a tax on children, where parent alienation is not so much a condition as it is a symptom. It can be compared to tobacco companies which denied the harmful effects of smoking for decades to resist protective laws. Here, one entity to target is the highly automated Child Support Collection Center in Albany, New York. It has a single confidential office which rakes in billions of dollars in aid and support interest with little accountability.

Parent March on Washington is now at the verge of making history: Be a part of it!

By Dr. Leon Koziol

Parenting Rights Institute

Last night’s nationwide conference call was the best to date as organizations from around the country are joining our Parent March on Washington. It is now a three-day event growing in stature with each passing day thanks to the grass roots volunteers who recognize that something very professional, organized and productive is occurring here. This is not a loose collection of protesters carrying signs with conflicting messages to passers-by. It has a long term agenda.

How can this event make history?

The timing for a parent march could not be better. This is the moment we have waited for. Here’s why:

  1. The Mueller Report has cleared the president. Now a growing number of leaders want our government to move on to domestic matters and the people they are elected to serve. That means American parents, not those invading our borders to gain free services.

  2.  During the weeks preceding our May 3rd March, members of Congress will be reviewing the Mueller Report while the taxpayers will be fed up with costly political witch hunts of the kind experienced by those who expose corruption.

  3. The border crisis will then take center stage with our event timed perfectly to shift the focus. Moms, dads, grandparents and extended families have been exposed to this relentless focus on illegal immigrants while corruption is being ignored here.

  4. Corruption of justice is expanding to alarming levels with crimes of unprecedented proportion. It will take the parents of America to instill true accountability and moral fiber in our government. That’s the way it’s been since the beginning of time.

  5. Parents have never organized like this in our nation’s capital and the timing could also not be more urgent. We have been the silent constituency exploited by greedy lawyers and corrupt family judges for too long. Now we make our stand.

  6.  This will be an exciting three-day affair you will not want to miss. Imagine a pure grass roots assembly of parents with no money, special interest or political backing, a turning point in a gridlock Congress where parents end the national divorce between Democrats and Republicans that is destroying our country! We may then get them to understand how family courts are destroying our families by pitting moms against dads for fees and federal revenues.

Thanks to those fine Americans who are now making this event viral so that we can grow the needed numbers. Lodging reservations are being confirmed every day and hotels like the Harrington (suggested in February) are already filled. Thanks also to those who are fighting off the wolves already trying to stop us.

Why the event?

We are going to Washington to demand a federal investigation of our highly corrupted family courts which misuse federal funds to cause wrongful separations of parents from their children. We want to shift national focus from illegal parents at the borders to legal parents subjected to human rights violations here at home. First the basic itinerary:

1)  On May 1, 2019, we are featuring the American Parent Caravan (APC), a cycle, vehicle and truck motorcade en route to Washington from various locations around the country. One of them already has 200 bikes and vehicles committed. It is starting at Liberty Park, Jersey City and it ends at Veterans Memorial in Washington five hours away. This event has been very effective in prior movements supervised by our organizers. At 7 pm, a meet-and-greet affair will occur at a hotel (or hotels) to be announced.

2)  On May 2, 2019, after a briefing breakfast meeting, TBA, we will split into groups to meet with members and staffers at the Capitol to deliver and promote our report and lobby packets containing an addendum of case summaries offered from across the country. By growing the numbers, we will have sufficient constituents of every member of Congress to gain access. The prior day motorcade and next day March will add greater incentives for our leaders to hear and act on our demands. A review-preview affair will occur at 7 pm at a hotel(s) to be announced. People are already arranging the latter.

3)  On May 3, 2019, after a briefing session TBA,  we will begin assembling at Presidents Park in front of the White House at 11 am. The main event, our Parent March on Washington, will begin at 1 pm and proceed to Upper Senate Park for a rally in support of a Congressional Oversight Hearing. We want to give victims direct access to those who can produce meaningful reform. The March ends at the Supreme Court where mainstream, social and secondary media will be invited to hear our individual ordeals. The 3-day affair will conclude that evening with a candlelight vigil in front of the Capitol in memory of those who have committed suicide or lost their children to alienation.

We are being censored!

If you don’t think that this is urgent or that we are not on to something, consider this. The website which launched this event has been monitored by judges, lawyers, politicians and media of all kinds. A family judge placed a gag order on it which was removed when that judge was sued in New York Supreme Court. Law enforcement have used the information here to obtain criminal prosecutions, and posts have been appended to agency reports.

Prior to the gag order in 2016 we were getting shares in the thousands for such demands as psychiatric evaluations for all family judges prior to assuming office. The video above, produced by an NBC production crew chronicles the many judges who went to prison or removed for committing pedophilia, bribery and extortion to fix custody cases. Today we get only a handful of shares despite all this attention, and Facebook has rejected all but the above video on our new Page entitled, “Parent March on Washington.” In short, this is not only about reversing the erosion of parental rights, it’s about an erosion of all our rights.

Details at http://www.leonkoziol.com. You can also call the event sponsor, Parenting Rights Institute, at (315) 380-3420 or e-mail its director, Dr. Leon Koziol at leonkoziol@gmail.com.

FYI for those familiar with the shocking witch hunt against judicial whistle blower, Dr. Leon Koziol, events have now occurred which permit an application for reinstatement to the practice of law. This comes after a record nine years of license suspension without an incident of malpractice, never a criminal charge or child protection report, 23 years of unblemished practice, and a secretary influenced to orchestrate ethics issues in his law office. She was finally convicted and jailed in 2016 during the time of the gag order. This is no John Grisham novel. It really happened as detailed in the book, Satan’s Docket: Corruption and Carnage in America’s Divorce Industry, available on the website.

 

Gillibrand is a “Coward” for Ignoring Legal Parents Wrongfully Separated From Their Children in Family Courts

IMG_0859.PNG

By Dr. Leon Koziol

Parenting Rights Institute

In her campaign kick-off speech in front of a Trump building, Kirsten Gillibrand called President Donald Trump a “coward.” It was a peculiar attack coming only hours after the Mueller Report cleared the president of Russian Collusion. Donald Trump courageously weathered two years of relentless attacks from liberals in a manner that Gill could not hope to survive in the unlikely event she becomes president.

Typical of liberal-socialist agendas, Gillebrand engaged in the art of projection, deflecting upon others her own faults, do as I say and not as I do, and free speech that is respected only to the extent you agree with her views. So let’s prove those points here to show the actual and profound cowardice of the wanna-be president while she served as a U.S. Senator from New York.

In her speech Gillibrand condemned the separations of illegal immigrants from their children at our borders. She made it appear as a humanitarian crisis despite the crimes, invasion and weapons purchases along the way. Yet she made no mention of the wrongful separations of legal parents from their children here in our divorce and family courts.

For years, parent advocate John Murtari has been lobbying Gillibrand for a simple meeting on the subject, even protesting in front of the federal building in Syracuse for the past few months. Jack Frost has been doing the same in Albany. Glenn Svobota and others joined in that effort in New York and Long Island. Yet not a peep from our latest presidential hopeful.

Veterans have long been committing suicides at the rate of 22 per day, an untold number directly influenced by family court discrimination and parent-child alienation, see i.e. Purple Heart’s Final Beat, Second Class Citizen.Org (6-minute shocking video). There has never been an investigation of suicides caused by family court abuses. Instead our national government continues to waste millions of dollars on political witch hunts like the two-year Mueller investigation.

This is why the Parent March on Washington was conceived last year after beltway politicians and our Justice Department failed to act on reports submitted by the Parenting Rights Institute which detailed federal funding abuses and a human rights epidemic in these courts. Parents have to finally make their stand against this corrupting of justice, our children and tax dollars.

Join our weekly nationwide conference calls every Thursday at 7pm EST to help promote this March on May 3, 2019. It’s time for your ordeal to be heard and investigated. Call (605) 313-4165, enter access code 763491 when prompted. Details at http://www.leonkoziol.com or our new Facebook Page: Parent March on Washington.

Just Another Suicide Note? Read it here and join our Parent March for a Federal Investigation of Family Court Suicides.

By Dr. Leon Koziol

Parenting Rights Institute

As we continue to grow numbers for our Parent March on Washington set for May 3rd (now a three day event), we are woefully short of the numbers needed to get the attention our cause deserves, that of obtaining a federal investigation into the billions of dollars in aid being abused in our nation’s divorce and family courts.

While a fine group of dedicated Americans has been joining our weekly conference calls, vast numbers of victims everywhere are not answering our call for solidarity and action. Countless complainers continue to keyboard from the comfort of their homes to the choir, to no one who cares about their war stories, or to no one who can do anything about it anyway.

As both an attorney for 23 years and victimized parent for another ten, I have documented the corruption in these courts, concluding overwhelmingly that we have an epidemic on our hands. The reason it is not being publicized is because parents and children have become a trillion dollar industry. There is no parent protection league, watch dog or union looking out for us unlike the powerful bar associations and special interests protecting their gold mine.

Think of it as the tobacco or chemical industries which lied to the public for decades before much belated accountability was finally wrestled from Congress. Suicides are among the most horrific consequence of this antiquated and highly lucrative custody system. It must be reformed into a progressive shared parenting model of child rearing.

When the suicide note below was sent to me by one of our March organizers, I could not bear to read all of it, so so sad! There are countless like them, i.e. 22 veterans committing suicide every day, visit Purple Heart’s Final Beat, Second Class Citizen .org. (short professional video of a veteran who takes his life in an empty home, felony child support summons on his front door, after returning from duty in Iraq).

Such suicides are a common final solution to parental alienation which mindless lawyers (and lawyers on the bench) cause every day without compassion or concern. They must finally be investigated on grounds of human rights violations alone! One father, Thomas Ball, burned himself alive in front of a family court in Keene, New Hampshire to protest corruption and alienation. Can you even imagine what it took for this Vietnam veteran to do this, how much pain he had to endure?

Thomas Ball also left a suicide note, but it was more of a manifesto detailing how to make Molotov cocktails for use against family court buildings. That was eight years ago when they simply washed his ashes into a sewer. Maybe I’ve lost everything trying to bring reform and attention to this epidemic, but I know I have personally saves many lives and prevented such horrific outcomes.

My upcoming report to Congress does not begin to match the cost and publicity of the Mueller Report, but it has far greater relevance to every-day society, where government attention must be shifted after all the political hoopla subsides. It has been updated and will be made available soon for those serious about joining us in Washington. Victims generating their own summaries will be included with it in a lobby packet hand-delivered to every member of Congress.

This is an unfunded, grass-roots initiative. For that reason and the sake of parents, grandparents, children and families everywhere, make your donation today, get on the phones, spread the word and make plans to join us on May 3, 2019.

A Father’s Suicide Note

Utterly defeated
by the family court system,
Christopher Mackney, 45, 
committed suicide
Dec 29, 2013 in Washington DC.

The love that my daughter and I shared was truly special. She is a such a sweet, kind and gentle spirit. I am so sorry that I will not be there to see her grow into a beautiful woman. It absolutely crushed me to not be in her life over the last three years. I worked very hard as a father to build her confidence and self-esteem. She is smart, funny and considerate, but she didn’t know it yet. I pray that she realizes her strengths and her confidence in herself will continue to grow. I love you dearly, Lily.

My son Jack was just entering Kindergarten, when I lost access to him. He is gregarious, outgoing and a great athlete. He is smart and fearless. He could have just as much fun by himself as he could with other kids. Even the older boys in our neighbourhood wanted to play with Jack. It absolutely breaks my heart that I will not be able to help him grow into a man. I love you to, Jack. I miss you both so much.

My identity was taken from me, as result of this process. When it began, I was a commercial real estate broker with CB Richard Ellis. I lived by the Golden rule and made a living by bringing parties together and finding the common ground. My reputation as a broker was built on my honesty and integrity. When it ended, I was broke, homeless, unemployed and had no visitation with my own children. 

I had no confidence and was paralyzed with fear that I would be going to jail whenever my ex-wife wanted. Nothing I could say or do would stop it. This is what being to death or ‘targeted’ by a psychopath looks like. This is the outcome. I didn’t somehow change into a ‘high-conflict’ person or lose my ability to steer clear of the law. I’ve had never been arrested, depressed, homeless or suicidal before this process. The stress and pressure applied to me was deliberate and nothing I could do or say would get me any relief. Nothing I or my attorneys said to my ex-wife’s attorney or to the Court made any difference. Truth, facts, evidence or even the best interest of my children had no affect on the outcome.

The family court system is broken, but from my experience, it is not the laws, its the lawyers. They feed off of the conflict. They are not hired to reduce conflict or protect the best interest of children, which is why third parties need to be involved. It should be mandatory for children to have a guardian ad litem, with extensive training in abuse and aggression. 

It is absolutely shameful that the Fairfax County Court did nothing to intervene or understand the ongoing conflict. Judge Randy Bellows also used the Children as punishment, by withholding access for failing to fax a receipt. The entire conflict centered around the denial of access to the children, it was inconceivable to me that he would use children like this. This is exactly what my ex-wife was doing and now Judge Bellows was doing it for her.

To all my family, friends and the people that supported me through this process, I am so sorry. I know my reactions and behavior throughout this process did not always make sense. None of this made sense to me either. I had no help and the only suggestion I got from my attorneys was to remain silent. 

At first, I did what I was told, remained silent and listened to my attorneys. Then after I had given my ex-wife full custody to try and appease her, I learned about Psychopathy and emailed Dr. Samenow about my concerns and asked him for help. Of course, I was ignored. As the conflict continued, I was forced to defend myself. When that didn’t work, I thought I could get the help I needed by speaking out. There is no right or wrong way to defend yourself from abuse. Naively, I thought that abuse was abuse and it would be recognized and something would be done. I thought speaking out would end the abuse or at least get them to back off. It didn’t. When no one did anything they were emboldened.

I took my own life because I had come to the conclusion that there was nothing I could do or say to end the abuse. Every time I got up off my knees, I would get knocked back down. They were not going to let me be the father I wanted to be to my children. People may think I am a coward for giving up on my children, but I didn’t see how I was going to heal from this. I have no money for an attorney, therapy or medication. I have lost four jobs because of this process. I was going to be at their mercy for the rest of my life and they had shown me none. 

Being alienated, legally abused, emotionally abused, isolated and financially ruined are all a recipe for suicide. I wish I were stronger to keep going, but the emotional pain and fear of going to court and jail [because of exorbitant child support] became overwhelming. I became paralyzed with fear. I couldn’t flee and I could not fight. I was never going to be allowed to heal or recover. I wish I were better at articulating the psychological and emotional trauma I experienced.

I could fill a book with all the lies and mysterious rulings of the Court. Never have I experienced this kind of pain. I asked for help, but good men did nothing and evil prevailed. All I wanted was a Guardian Ad Litem for my children. Any third party would have been easily been able to confirm or refute all of my allegations, which is why none was ever appointed to protect the children or reduce the conflict.

Abuse is about power and control. Stand up for the abused and speak out. If someone speaks out about abuse, believe them.

Please teach my children empathy and about emotional invalidation and ‘gas-lighting’ or they may end up like me.

God have mercy on my soul.

Dr. Leon Koziol submits report to Senate Judiciary Committee seeking criminal investigation of family court corruption

IMG_0524
Before and after this October 11, 2018 meeting of the Senate Judiciary Committee, Dr. Leon Koziol discussed his recent report regarding court corruption with several key members. Each one committed himself and senate staff to a review. Hopefully it will lead to a long needed federal investigation of our state family courts.

Breaking News from Site Administrator

Parenting Rights Institute Director, Dr. Leon Koziol, has just returned from a week long trip to Washington D.C. He has been lobbying the Senate Judiciary Committee, House Oversight Committee, Justice Department and others for a federal investigation and committee hearings on the subject of judicial corruption in our nation’s family courts. He hopes other victims will join.

At the center of his effort is a report describing his Supreme Court petition docketed on September 5, 2018 entitled, Leon Koziol v Chief Judge Janet DiFiore, et. al. Case No. 18-278. That case relates the ten-year ordeal of Dr. Leon Koziol as a trial attorney and model parent with a request for judicial whistleblower protection. All documents are accessible on the Supreme Court site.

Depicted graphically throughout this website, Leon Koziol.com, his ordeal dwarfs the one related to the same Judiciary Committee by Dr. Blasey Ford during the recent confirmation hearings. Newly seated Justice Brett Kavanaugh will now review the Koziol case featuring claims of discrimination in our family courts, judge corruption and the targeting of men everywhere. 

The horrific mistreatment of this whistleblower climaxed this past year to include violations of law, procedure and government policies in a clandestine effort to literally kill a highly qualified reform messenger. Oneida County, New York  Sheriff Robert Maciol admitted that a secret police bulletin was improperly leaked to the media, one which led to a verbal “shoot on sight” order by a town patrol cop. It was compared to the police murder of Walter Scott on April 4, 2015. Unarmed and fleeing a child support warrant at a traffic stop, this dad was shot dead five times in the back leading to a $6 million settlement.

Sheriff Maciol has ignored Dr. Koziol’s complaints since January regarding the targeting of his free speech, parenting and due process rights, making him complicit in a conspiracy to violate federal law. The volatile situation which this has triggered can be compared to the needless killing of another deputy under his command, Kurt Wyman, during a domestic stand-off.

In the Koziol case, a subordinate deputy was reported for abusing court security duties, providing free service of a support summons as a favor to a court clerk, and depriving taxpayers and sheriff civil division of the fee prescribed by law. In a comparable case successfully defended by Dr. Koziol followed by civil rights recovery of $80,000, a city employee who abused his position in a similar way was quickly charged with a felony.

Dr. Koziol’s formal request for a federal investigation was discussed personally with members of the Senate Judiciary Committee, some of the same ones featured during the Kavanaugh confirmation hearings. That process alerted the public to our third branch of government which is neither “above the law” nor immune from accountability under our Constitution.

As relevant here, and set out fully in Dr. Koziol’s report, the violations of our federal rights can elevate from civil to criminal status. A key example is “Operation Greylord,” a federal sting operation regarding judicial corruption in Chicago. Also cited in the report, it led to indictments of 93 civil rights violators that included 17 judges, 48 lawyers, 10 deputy sheriffs, 8 policemen 8 court officials and an elected politician. Nearly all were convicted. One judge committed suicide and another died in 2011, one year after his release from prison.

These are the federal criminal statutes relied upon in the Koziol report supporting a comprehensive criminal investigation of his horrific ten-year ordeal:

Title 18, section 242 of the United States Code provides as follows:

Whoever, under color of any law, statute, ordinance, regulation, or custom, willfully subjects any person in any State, Territory, Commonwealth, Possession, or District to the deprivation of any rights, privileges, or immunities secured or protected by the Constitution or laws of the United States, or to different punishments, pains, or penalties, on account of such person being an alien, or by reason of his color, or race, than are prescribed for the punishment of citizens, shall be fined under this title or imprisoned not more than one year, or both;

(A)nd if bodily injury results from the acts committed in violation of this section or if such acts include the use, attempted use, or threatened use of a dangerous weapon, explosives, or fire, shall be fined under this title or imprisoned not more than ten years, or both; and if death results from the acts committed in violation of this section or if such acts include kidnapping or an attempt to kidnap, aggravated sexual abuse, or an attempt to commit aggravated sexual abuse, or an attempt to kill, shall be fined under this title, or imprisoned for any term of years or for life, or both, or may be sentenced to death.

Title 18 section 241 of the United States Code provides as follows:

If two or more persons conspire to injure, oppress, threaten, or intimidate any person in any State, Territory, Commonwealth, Possession, or District in the free exercise or enjoyment of any right or privilege secured to him by the Constitution or laws of the United States, or because of his having so exercised the same; or if two or more persons go in disguise on the highway, or on the premises of another, with intent to prevent or hinder his free exercise or enjoyment of any right or privilege so secured—

Free speech, due process, equal protection and the fundamental parenting right were all crucified here. As always, Dr. Koziol needs your personal and financial support after losing everything behind this worth cause. That cause is benefiting parents, families, children and future generations at great risk to a conscientious whistleblower and court reformist. Kindly share this post with your congressional representatives, media and other contacts.

Civil rights advocate targeted by thieving ethics lawyers, Facebook and now a publicly censured Judge Popeo

First it was a trio of ethics lawyers fired for falsifying time sheets, then Facebook, certain mainstream media, and now a publicly censured judge is joining the gang of liberals persecuting a once prominent civil rights attorney in New York.

It all began in 2008 when Dr. Leon Koziol set out to expose corruption in divorce and family courts in an effort to replace antiquated custody and support laws with progressive shared parenting. The retributions achieved epic proportion after he supported Donald Trump BEFORE election day, going so far as to file a 2016 motion for disqualification of Justice Ruth Bader-Ginsburg due to her anti-Trump political interviews from Supreme Court chambers.

Dr. Leon Koziol employs the alternative “Juris Doctor” for his professional name because an Albany, New York appeals court prohibited him from using the term “attorney” in a six month suspension order. Such a prohibition conveniently removes the credibility of his corruption reports and reform message. The license suspension was long completed in 2013, and it was caused by a secretary influenced to create ethics issues in Dr. Koziol’s law office. That secretary was eventually convicted of felonies committed on later victims.

2013 was also the year that Dr. Koziol testified regarding widespread judge and lawyer misconduct before the Moreland Commission on Public Corruption at Pace University. It was the same year that ethics lawyers appointed by the same court announced to a panel of justices in closed proceedings that they would oppose returning Koziol to his civil rights practice so long as his public criticisms continued. It was a year when custody judge, Bryan Hedges, disqualified by Koziol motion in 2011, was permanently removed from the family court bench for admitting to sexual abuse of his handicapped five year old niece.

That same year, the same ethics lawyers were allowed by their judge superiors to resign quietly after a state inspector general uncovered their falsified time sheets. They were never prosecuted, criminally or ethically, and still allowed to practice law in New York’s capital district. This is in contrast to one Koziol client who was immediately prosecuted as a felon for obtaining a $16 city gas card reimbursement two hours after wrongful discharge. He was cleared by a jury before obtaining a consequentially large civil rights recovery.

These were only some of the shocking revelations brought before the Moreland Commission. Within weeks of that testimony, Dr. Koziol lost all contact with his daughters due to a family judge, Daniel King, who was reported for fabricating college degrees in child support decisions. Judge King could find no evidence of unfit parenting, indeed there was never any child protection agency report, so he based his decision on a “prohibited alcohol related gesture” (a wedding toast) among other demented concoctions. He even imposed a gag order on this site which was removed only after Dr. Koziol sued him in New York Supreme Court on First Amendment violations

And so it’s been, a suspension of a law license exceeding eight years, one year longer than a felony disbarment period, without so much as an accusation of any criminal wrongdoing. And no child contact for over four years! It is an unprecedented ordeal and a judicial record by most accounts. But that’s not the only record en route to shattering the glass ceiling of judicial immunity. Over 40 trial jurists have been assigned so far to Dr. Koziol’s originally uncontested divorce since it was filed in 2006.

With each assignment, grounds for disqualification arose immediately, causing one judge after another to recuse himself or herself at the outset. For others who pressed on in violation of judicial ethics, misconduct inevitably reared itself, and removal was secured through motion filings. Rather than accepting the systemic retaliation and the state’s role in all this, judges are now faulting the victim of their corruption.

The latest one is Gerald “Rocky” Popeo (Judge #41) who was publicly censored in 2015 by the New York Commission on Judicial Conduct after a hearing judge found that he had joked about downstate blacks and upstate “country niggers.” Popeo was also found guilty of making a violent threat to a litigant from the bench. The public censure encompassed serial contempt and jail sentences in violation of due process. However, much more was never reported or excused by that Commission, and this sadistic, self-loving and mentally challenged judge was never even removed.

For example, a former African-American city official and Koziol client attempted suicide in a jail cell after Judge Popeo presided over a racist targeting of his night club. All nuisance and liquor violations were dismissed by a jury after Judge Popeo re-committed the suicide prospect to jail from the hospital where he was in recovery. Prior to the targeting, this same African-American activist obtained a jury verdict of $333,000.00 in a race discrimination case against some of the same people now behind the Koziol witch hunt. It was argued by Dr. Koziol before a current Supreme Court Justice, Patterson v City of Utica, 370 F.3d 322 (2nd Cir. 2004).

In the summer of 2017, Popeo initiated a heated exchange with Koziol at a local bar, witnessed by a U.S. Marine veteran. It was based on Gerry’s belief that Leon had something to do with the 2015 misconduct prosecution against him. Despite all that, like his denials of racism reported by an African-American attorney, Judge Popeo denied that the bar conversation even occurred. He did so as an “Acting Family Court Judge” assigned to Dr. Koziol’s custody and support cases. His peculiar assignment came at a time when a series of editorials and full page advertisements by Dr. Koziol critical of the judiciary were featured in the Syracuse, Utica and Watertown, New York newspapers.

And despite even that, the same Gerald Popeo denied Dr. Koziol’s motion for disqualification this past week, ruling that he can be impartial. Since his assignment in February, 2018, Popeo has continued to deny Koziol all contact with his daughters. He now stands ready to jail him on orchestrated (unlawful) child support debts. The Leon Koziol story was recently documented in a shocking new book, Satan’s Docket: Corruption and Carnage in America’s Divorce Industry.  It is a must-read for all court participants and good government advocates, available on-line at http://www.parentingrightsinstitute.com.

With this backdrop, can anyone continue to be shocked by Donald Trump’s condemnation of federal judges who interfere with national security decisions of our elected president? The Leon Koziol story shows how the elected goal of “draining the swamp” cannot be limited to the executive or legislative branches. A federal judge who dismissed Dr. Koziol’s civil rights case against his persecutors is all the proof we Americans need to support President Trump.

That federal judge, Gary Sharpe, was removed from a case by a federal appeals court in Manhattan for announcing a human gene for decision making that would not be discovered by scientists for “another fifty years.” United States v Cossey, 632 F.3d   82 (2nd Cir. 2011). Never mind the swamp, that sort of lunacy on the bench rivals Hitler’s Nazi Germany. It also presents an important message for all whistle blowers like Edward Snowden: Stay in some free country where it’s safe!

Please don’t simply read this post and move on. The important information just received came to you at a high price. Share it with those who can help us fight this growing corruption in America. The censorship of our values and Trump supporters is very real as proven again today by Fox News headlines. They featured a black woman duo known as “Diamond and Silk” who were censored by Facebook due to the pro-Trump content of their popular site.
