By Dr. Leon R. Koziol

Have you finally had enough? Hardly a day goes by without another shocking display of government corruption impacting our nation like never before. And no one with a conscience is doing much about it short of knee-jerk reactions to catastrophic events.

From Bernie Madoff to the doctoring of public disclosures in the Orlando mass murders, the public is routinely the victim. Law abiding gun owners are targeted instead of the killer whose terrorist communications were doctored. So who’s the real enemy here?

As a self governing nation, we have a duty under our Constitution to make a stand. This is your government they are corrupting, your IRS paid for by your tax dollars that is suppressing free speech, your courts which are complicit in the scandals. It’s time for a mass rally against corruption in Washington D.C. on Constitution Day, 2016.

That’s only three (3) months, so if you love your country, your families and way of life, join us for a defining moment in American history. Don’t expect your neighbor or the few activists here to do it for you. We can be just as apathetic, bowling, basketball-watching or “raising awareness” to no one who cares from the comfort of our keyboards, but nothing will be gained until we make our grievances known, like it says in the First Amendment.

So get started now. Don’t get diluted through distractions. You mean something under the true government. Remember the phrase “We the People?” That’s you and me along with the rest accepting corruption as if it is to be expected now. Exercise your rights as you would your own body for the health of a government we created.Get organized in your back yards, construct the protest signs, and make arrangements with organizations to be there.

This a one time event with broad based sponsorship. Any person or organization can join. There are no barriers to participation. A steering committee of professionals has been formed to unite us behind this important cause of liberty. But we will secure no permits for the event near the Lincoln Monument until enough support and donations have emerged.

As a civil rights advocate, attorney for a former president of the National Organization for Women and now the Director of National League of Fathers, Inc. I’ve done my part and sacrificed everything for equality and justice in our nation’s courts. Now it’s your turn to be part of a growing movement to “Clean Up Government.”

For those of you who think we are not on the verge of a crisis, note the following: When a group of parents (including me) gave testimony before a Public Corruption Commission on Constitution Day, 2013, we were instantly targeted. That Commission was prematurely dissolved when evidence began implicating those who created the Commission. Top leaders of state government were eventually convicted of federal crimes and sent to prison.

If we focus only on corruption involving innocent children and families, the condition of our government becomes very alarming, much beyond the eroding of “public confidence in the integrity and impartiality of the judiciary” as found in United States v Cossey, 632 F.3d 82 (2nd Cir. 2011)(federal judge employing a human gene to be discovered 50 years from now to make his decisions).

One exemplary case (you know there are many more) involves a New York Supreme Court Judge in Brooklyn caught on camera taking a bribe from a divorce lawyer. It was part of a scam to shift custody from a mother to an influential father. Had the feisty mom not convinced the FBI to act on her evidence, this judge, Gerald Garson, would still be on the bench dispensing “justice.”

However his conviction of federal crimes was not the shocking part. Due punishment was compromised by colleagues supporting his early release in 2009. Now you have to ponder that for a moment. If disgraced ex-Judge Garson is still being defended after a crime at the heart of our justice system, what does that say for their tolerance of corruption generally?

While the “Honorable” Gerald Garson was busy generating unreported income, another Supreme Court Judge, Thomas Spargo, was busy securing a bribe against a father arguing a client case before him. At a dinner conversation, he requested $10,000 to defray the cost of legal fees needed against misconduct charges pending against him. Spargo was already being prosecuted for judge misconduct and resorted to criminal behavior to get out.

These and other cases are easily found on the internet to verify a corruption epidemic of undefined proportion. Most people view judges as honorable office holders committed to justice, but behind the black robes, in the recesses of chambers and among discreet exchanges in restaurants, bars and golf courses, there is often quite another set of characteristics at play.

In my own case, I challenged a custody judge based on his undue parental alienation at a closed session with my girls (known as a Lincoln hearing without parents allowed in). I was especially vulnerable with all the corruption I was exposing. My motion for his removal was granted despite lawyers declaring his reputation as one beyond reproach. He was removed altogether from the bench the next year after admitting to sexual misconduct on his handicapped five year old niece (Syracuse Family Judge Bryan Hedges).

The chief ethics lawyer and staff attorneys in the witch hunt executed against me were terminated by the state Supreme Court for falsifying their time sheets. No public charges, ethical or criminal, were ever brought in contrast to the treatment of the commoners who steal from government. And these are the standard bearers of lawyer ethics charged with oversight of billing practices that bankrupt parents in divorce and family court.

Worse yet, the victims are left with no recourse. This is because judges have legislated for themselves a rule of immunity even from malicious conduct unlike the rest of us when we violate the public trust. The people have never consented to such a rule. To verify, consider a proposition on the ballot where government was proposing to act in a purely malicious way against a constituent. Such a proposition would surely fail by a near unanimous vote.

Ex-Chief Justice Sol Wachtler of New York’s high court was imprisoned for numerous crimes. He is back practicing law and teaching ethics while his campaign poster remains on public display at the state’s high court. In his book, After the Madness, he explained that judges are made to believe they are gods. He went so far as to direct paid court staff to dig up grounds for preventing licensure of a lawyer assisting his mistress to discover a man making extortionist threats on her daughter. That man turned out to be the judge himself.

Then there’s the family judge in Michigan, the “Honorable” Wade McCree, whose case defied all manner of ethics. He admitted to adulterous sex in chambers with a litigant while presiding over her child support case. Judge McCree was removed from the bench for all sorts of misconduct involving numerous cases only after the affair (and pregnancy) was confirmed. The father, placed on a tether for support arrears during this affair was denied recovery by a federal appeals court on grounds of judge immunity.

In Pennsylvania, two judges were imprisoned for the now infamous “Kids for Cash” scandal. It featured kick-backs from contractors benefited by the number of minors sent to juvenile centers. Over 4,000 convictions had to be overturned by the state’s Supreme Court now plagued by its own corruption. Two of its justices resigned due to misconduct leaked by a new Attorney General.

That same court retaliated by suspending her law license prior to any hearing or conviction. Even while I was filing my case before the Supreme Court this past week for corrective action, the same court was handing down a decision condemning the misconduct of that state’s ex-Chief Justice, see Williams v Pennsylvania, 579 US __ (June 9, 2016).

A natural outcome of the foregoing is lawlessness. Although examples abound, in my small city, a police investigator committed murder-suicide on his ex-spouse after leaving support court. Draconian practices produce homeless victims. In San Diego today, it was reported that a 50 year homeless man was beaten to death by two high school boys and a cheerleader. Does it get any sicker from inept state interference in parental discipline?

Facing such prospects, this law man used a common kitchen knife to complete his crime, voiding any deterrent effect of inflammatory protection orders issued. It left three children with no parents and city taxpayers responsible for a $2 million wrongful death pay-out, see Pearce v Longo, 766 F. Supp.2d 367 (NDNY 2011). An unarmed black father, Walter Scott, was shot dead five times in the back by a police officer in South Carolina simply because he was fleeing a child support warrant at a traffic stop.  That city paid out $3 million so far.

In his book, A Promise to Ourselves, actor Alec Baldwin gives a scathing report of his protracted divorce with Kim Basinger. After a voice message to his daughter was made public, Mr. Baldwin was condemned as an abusive parent. Largely censored were the alienation tactics which fueled this exchange. So painful was the aftermath that he admitted to suicidal tendencies at his high rise apartment and during a drive to the Berkshires. Years later the same daughter was featured in a second wedding ceremony for her father.

The 2011 case of Thomas Ball is also instructive. An oppressed father seeking to ignite protest burned himself alive in front of a family courthouse in Keene, New Hampshire. There was no mainstream coverage in contrast to a similar self-immolation in Morocco which attracted world protest. This incident was cited only last month by me during a human rights conference to dissuade a prominent figure in Manhattan from attempting self destruction as a final reform tactic.

And so, while our federal government escalates its military involvement around the globe, soldiers are returning to empty homes, child alienation and felony support warrants. I was able to save another victim from suicide at a parent convention I sponsored in 2011, but the unsuccessful instances are more telling, see i.e. Purple Heart’s Final Beat, Second Class Citizen.Org (2009). Virtually all responders on 9-11 were men entitled to equal treatment in these courts. Yet a vast number became eternally separated without any reform.

Enough ! Be a part of the solution. These are your fellow citizens at risk. Contact me for further information at Parenting Rights Institute (315) 380-3420. I will not respond to keyboarding exercises. Serious inquiries only.

This is the Petition for Writ filed on June 17, 2016 at the United States Supreme Court joined by a Florida doctor, California dentist and engineer from Virginia. They held a news conference on the steps of the courthouse which has now attracted a nationwide following. Abraham Lincoln is our nation’s hero for equality. As he looks out upon Congress and Supreme Court in the distance, he cannot be pleased with what he sees.

RIP Morley Safer of CBS 60 Minutes: Interviewed Leon Koziol at his Law Office

image
Dr. Leon Koziol interviewed by CBS 60 Minutes co-host Morley Safer in Leon’s law office in Utica, New York. Mr. Safer passed away today.

He was an icon of American media, a whistle blower extraordinaire, a reporter and anchor for CBS 60 Minutes. He passed away today after a phenomenal career that spanned decades. When he spoke everyone listened. You easily became glued to your television sets on Sunday nights when Morley was telling a story. He did  it with conviction, class and professionalism, not with political motivation or self service. 

And so it was when he interviewed Dr. Leon Koziol at his law office years ago on the subject of Indian land claims and illegal gaming compacts. When an Indian tribe sued innocent  landowners for their business and homes in violation of ancient treaties, Leon was hired when few other lawyers were willing to risk their careers. Leon counter-sued on behalf of a citizens group challenging an illegal gaming contact which federal, state and local leaders claimed could not be won.

Well persistence paid off. Despite all the attacks from media, judges and high profile law firms over a period of years, Leon ultimately won for the landowners. A billion dollar casino compact was declared unconstitutional in New York Supreme Court. Years later the land claim was also struck down. One of Leon’s successful rulings can be found at Oneida Nation v County of Oneida, 132 F. Support. 2d 71 (NDNY 2000).

Now Leon Koziol is seeking to declare divorce and family laws which discriminate against fathers unconstitutional. He is also seeking recourse for court corruption and parental alienation. New York Supreme Court recently signed an order against a family  judge, Daniel King, to answer Leon’s mandamus and declaratory action regarding a gag order on this website, Leon Koziol.com. The lawsuit features unprecedented retaliations involving Leon’s children for his testimony before the Moreland Commission on Public Corruption. 

It was set for a public hearing on June 10, 2016. However, today, at the request of defense counsel it was rescheduled for June 22 at 1:30 pm at the Supreme Court in Utica, New York. As a result the rally set for the earlier date had to be rescheduled for the later day, giving us more time to organize. Get involved, spread the word and join us. We can be reached at our office, Parenting Rights Institute, at (315) 380-3420 or Leon direct at (315) 796-4000. 

Dr. Leon Koziol Delivers Custody Court Dysfunction Report at United Nations Family Rights Conference

image

New York City, May 16, 2016

Despite ongoing lack of donor funding on this site, Parental Advocate Dr. Leon R. Koziol continues to pursue overdue reforms to divorce and family courts. Today he attended a family rights conference at the United Nations where he introduced his Custody Court Dysfunction Report to nation delegates from around the world.

Parental rights are recognized in the Universal Declaration of Human Rights as  fundamental to a civilized and free society. According to the United Nations Family Rights Caucus, the right to create and enjoy a family unit cannot be denied, it must be protected by the state. Unfortunately, parents and families are being destroyed by judges and lawyers who are exploiting children for profit through needless orchestrated conflict.

After presenting his report, Leon conversed with fellow human rights advocates and organizations. He also related testimony given before the Moreland Commission on Public Corruption to a speaker and delegate from the Russian Federation. It is important that we bring world attention to the horrific abuses occurring in these courts. We will keep you abreast of follow-up and progress.

In the meantime your personal and financial assistance is crucial. A long time supporter, James Ginter of Staten Island, New York City, has offered to lead a rally  on June 10 at the Oneida County Courthouse in Utica. On that day Leon will present legal argument in New York Supreme Court to remove a corrupt family judge, promote shared parenting and remedy severe child alienation.

You can contact our office, Parenting Rights Institute, at (315) 380-3420 or Dr. Koziol direct at (315) 796-4000.

Fathers and Free Speech Case to be Argued June 10 in New York Supreme Court

 

honoring-soldiers-veterans-day-2-20110615
Fort Drum Military Base, one of America’s largest, is surrounded by the judicial district where this case, Koziol v King, is being heard. Isn’t it time we sent a message of support on the home front when our service people return to courts that still discriminate against fathers? Census Bureau reports continue to show that 85% of child support payers are dads who also comprise nearly 100% of those committed to debtor prisons when they cannot hold a good job. Of the 58,000 soldiers who gave their lives for this country on the Viet Nam Memorial Wall in D.C., eight are women.

Divorce and family court victims as far away as Florida and California are already committed to attend public hearing on gag order, equal rights and parental alienation.

After ten years of litigating for parental justice as high as the United States Supreme Court, Dr. Leon Koziol may finally get his day in court on behalf of divorce and family court victims everywhere. A New York Supreme Court Justice has just signed an order to hear arguments in a mandamus proceeding on June 10 at 10:30 a.m. at the Oneida County Courthouse in Utica. Mandamus is considered extraordinary, in this case directed at a family court judge named Daniel King in Lowville, New York, and it is open to the public.

In the past, Leon was bombarded with technical dismissals, jurisdictional chaos and judge misconduct designed to suppress his overdue reform efforts in our third branch of government. Unscrupulous lawyers across America have turned our children into a lucrative trillion dollar industry eating alive our life’s earnings, retirement savings, health and college funds. And the corruption is escalating for reasons found in Leon’s ordeal described with horrific detail at Leon Koziol.com.

After 23 unblemished years practicing law in federal and state courts, he was suspended, threatened with contempt, deprived of a livelihood, denied access to (important people in his life) and now they are seizing his home.  We can’t disclose who those important people are because this site is still subject to a gag order which Leon seeks to remove on June 10th so that fraud, perjury and judge misconduct can be conveyed to you when government commissions fail us.

The timing before Fathers Day and location of these arguments are also extraordinary. An opportunity like this may not occur for another ten years. Leon has sacrificed too much for this cause and is destined to lose this case because the establishment and gold mine he is seeking to reform are too powerful. But if we can finally rally together at the Oneida County Courthouse in a judicial district which includes the Fort Drum Army Base and former Griffiss Air Force Base, a profound message can be sent to courts all across America.

Leon is highly focused on protecting military, minorities and law enforcement, or those mostly harmed by the antiquated custody system. Instead of promoting shared parenting, our federal government today is obsessed with transgender bathrooms in North Carolina with Attorney General Loretta Lynch accusing us of being racists if we don’t support her. What???  Leon was a highly accomplished civil rights attorney and lawyer for a past president of the National Organization for Women. Racism and religious convictions are not the same. And while everyone else is demanding equal rights, fathers are still discriminated through an abuse of Title IV-D federal funding.

This courthouse in the center of New York state is three hours from New York metropolitan area and Buffalo, two hours from the Canadian and Pennsylvania borders. Already supporters are committed to attend from as far away as Florida and California. Hotel Utica and the Radisson downtown are less than a mile from Thruway Exit 31 (Interstate 90). These were the sites of various civil rights forums sponsored by Leon that were targeted by  ethics lawyers engaged in the witch hunt against Leon. They were ultimately fired by a licensing court for falsifying their time sheets. No public charges were ever brought against them.

You may have heard about Arkansas Judge Joe Boeckmann charged this week with sexual predator crimes over a thirty year period through judicial favors. In the mandamus lawsuit and at Leon Koziol.com, you will read about Leon’s custody judge, Brian Hedges,  removed from the bench for admitting to sexual misconduct on his five year old handicapped niece, family judges who fabricated college degrees to elevate Leon’s support obligations, and his consequential testimony before the Moreland Commission on Public Corruption which led to more severe retributions. You will read about judges sent to prison in Brooklyn and Albany for soliciting custody and divorce bribes, and of course the “Kids-for-Cash” scandal in Pennsylvania.

It’s out of control people. Stop keyboarding in the comfort of your homes to one another and people who don’t care. “Raising awareness” this way is misguided and creates false hope. It’s time to make a stand against parent waterboarding by a corrupted system. Spread the word every way you can. After the June 10 arguments, Leon will file a petition for writ at the United States Supreme Court in Washington D.C. concerning a similar mandamus action dismissed by a federal appeals court in Manhattan. An opening excerpt is provided below. For more information and desperately needed donations, contact our office, Parenting Rights Institute, at (315) 796-4000 or Leon direct at (315) 796-4000.

 

U.S.  SUPREME COURT  WRIT   (OPENING):

While our federal government asserts itself around the globe to advance human rights, its military is returning to divorce and family courts which exploit children for profit. Public safety officers, such as our responders on 9-11, are being hauled into the same courts and subjected to discrimination on account of their gender or line of duty. Many are alienated from their children, committed to debtor prisons or oppressed as inferior parents to feed a trillion dollar industry.

It is a highly protected industry orchestrated under Title IV-D of the Social Security Act, 42 USC section 651 et. seq. States are rewarded by the number and size of “child support” orders manufactured by their courts. Superior and inferior custody classifications are essential to these money transfers and mandated by federal statute even when parents with near equal incomes and childrearing periods set up contrary agreements, see i.e. Bast v Rossoff, 91 NY2d 723 (1998).

Accordingly support judges have been rendered inherently biased against all those classified under the inferior “non-custodial” label with or without justification. Such classifications are arbitrary, stigmatizing and institutional in countless cases, requiring otherwise cooperative parents to compete over their children. Their infringement of a fundamental right to parent one’s offspring is easily replaced by childrearing plans and orders which retain more family oriented labels such as mother, father and parent, see i.e. Webster v Ryan, 729 NYS2d 315 (Albany Fam. Ct. 2001) at fn. 1(veteran family judge declaring “custody” and “visitation” to be offensive terms in an antiquated system which brings out the worst in parents when children need their best).[1]

However such less intrusive custody substitutes are foreclosed by the blanket classifications and marginalized by overburdened courts committed to the funding scheme. Over time, such injustices have reached constitutional dimension while ever elusive, utopian and overbroad child rearing standards displace parental discretion without compelling state interest contrary to a right declared by the Supreme Court to be the “oldest liberty interest” protected by our Constitution, Troxel v Granville, 530 US 57 (2000)(prolonged custody case can itself violate parental rights), Parham v JR, 442 US 548 (1979)(fit parents presumed to act in their children’s best interests).

A full range of constitutional rights is easily trampled under principles of equity, or the power seized by family judges to “father” our children, see often cited Finlay v Finlay, 240 NY 429 (1925)(“paternal jurisdiction” derived from feudal common law). In plain terms, the Constitution is being ignored because the custody scheme is lucrative for those who depend upon family controversy for their livelihood. It is being facilitated by judges charged with the highest duty of safeguarding such rights, Federalist Paper No. 78; Marbury v Madison, 5 US 137 (1803).

Support inequities triggered by this scheme (child support standards act) are typically countered with custody tactics to result in untold harm to our children, i.e. Pearce v Longo, 766 F.Supp.2d 367 (NDNY 2011)($2 million city liability for police investigator committing murder-suicide with ex-spouse after exiting support court leaving children without parents). In his highly researched study, Is There Really a Fatherhood Crisis, Professor Stephen Baskerville places the blame on government: “What many are led to believe is a social problem may in reality be an exercise of power by the state,” Independence Review, vol VIII, n 4, Spring 2004, at pp 485-486.

Unsuspecting litigants are also exploited by an expanding bureaucracy under Title IV-D to finance welfare costs created by unrelated and irresponsible parents. The ones properly devoted to their children therefore shoulder an unjust burden merely because they reside separately from their partners.[2] These support judges engage in highly abused fictions such as “imputed income” to raise obligations beyond realistic capacities.[3] There is no express provision for shared parenting under the federal entitlement statute, and the regulatory scheme has replaced the child’s needs with “way of life” standards to elevate support even further. It has removed critical discretion from proper decision makers with outcomes that shock the conscience, see fn 3 and 4.

The “band plays on” in our nation’s family courts because civil rights attorneys and parental advocates such as petitioner are subjugated, vilified and punished for their exercise of reform efforts otherwise protected under the American Constitution. Meanwhile, gay, lesbian and trans-gender parents, soon to be victimized by this same lucrative system, have achieved far greater strides in equality with repeat court actions than fathers have over a century of discrimination.

This is a petition for writ of mandamus and prohibition directed to the federal court of the Northern District of New York. It seeks relief which is central to any self-governing society, namely, the right to seek reforms to this over regulated and oppressive system of child control. In that vein, it matters not whether the decision makers here agree with the foregoing legal posture concerning a federal statute. It matters only that the petitioner is accorded his inalienable human right to express public views and raise his offspring free of the severe retributions he sustained for criticizing our third branch of government, see i.e Garrison v Louisiana, 379 US 64 (1964).

     [1]  Petitioner’s revenue-bias conclusion was deemed frivolous by the lower court. However it is supported by our nation’s top civil rights experts at the Justice Department. They issued a report on March 4, 2015 after the Ferguson, Missouri race riots concluding that the region’s municipal courts were committing civil rights violations through concocted arrests and excessive fines as part of a revenue generating scheme. There is nothing to distinguish that conclusion from petitioner’s long asserted claims here regarding family courts which incite needless controversy to exact excessive support orders and attorneys fees. Unequal custody classifications are the workhorse behind all this with rampant prejudice against male parents which can no longer be denied or tolerated. The Census Bureau and private entities continue to report that nearly 85% of all support obligors are men. In his court filings, petitioner has described this as “the last bastion of institutionalized discrimination remaining un-checked in America today.”

[2]  As this case verifies, money interests have displaced the “best interests of the child” in family court. Financial disclosures are mandatory for gauging child support but exploited by unscrupulous lawyers to concoct needless and even bizarre issues for fee maximization. When resources are exhausted from both parents, they orchestrate cause for settlement or client abandonment. Ethics violations are so numerous and even accepted as part of a litigious child control process that attorney disciplinary agents cannot logistically police all the abuses. Worse yet, these agents are able to abuse their entrusted positions to suppress accountability. This case features a chief ethics attorney and two lawyer subordinates who engaged in the witch hunt against the petitioner-attorney (and father) for his public disclosure of vast misconduct. They were terminated from their court-appointed positions as standard bearers of lawyer ethics after an Inspector General discovered their falsified time sheets. No public charges, ethical or criminal, were ever instituted, see Robert Gavin, Oversight lawyers quit amid inquiry, (Albany) Times Union, July 10, 2013.

[3] The injustices have reached epidemic proportions. Only one month after the Ferguson report, a fit and unarmed father named Walter Scott was shot dead in the back while fleeing a child support warrant during a traffic stop in South Carolina. He had been imprisoned a number of times due to a growing support debt based on imputed income capacities. Under prevailing law, an imprisoned parent for any reason continues to face support obligations at pre-commitment levels. Upon release, the debtor is typically overwhelmed and unemployable. He is nevertheless subjected to a rule that one should not profit from the mis-deeds which caused the incarceration even with full rehabilitation. Only because of the “mis-deeds” of this traffic cop, quickly charged with murder, was it publicly revealed that one out of every eight persons imprisoned in South Carolina resulted from support debts. Nearly all are male parents, and a review of warrants lists across New York reveals a similar pattern. South Carolina boasts one of the strictest support enforcement laws with jail terms of up to one year, yet it reports one of the worst collection rates under the federal (performance) statute, partial source: Robles and Dewan, Skip Child Support. Go to Jail. Lose Job. Repeat, New York Times (front page), 4/19/15. Debtor prisons have been invalidated since the mid 19th century but re-introduced through willful support violations. As the case before this court demonstrates, such a contempt avenue is an illusion behind a de facto debtors’ prison due to biased judges having a financial stake in the outcomes of support litigation. Such jurists bring court revenues and personal advancement through support performance measures and payments derived from sources other than the debtor parent, see i.e. Bast, supra. As relevant here, the petitioner-father issued public statements at the Walter Scott funeral before national media, civil rights groups and reporters of the New York Times as part of his ongoing reform efforts. He suffered further retributions in the lower court, state family courts and attorney disciplinary tribunals by actions and decisions beginning only weeks later.

 

 

 

 

Human Rights Conference in NYC includes violations in divorce and family court

img_0116
View of new World Trade Center in Tribecca neighborhood of NYC where Leon stayed on last day of human rights conference.

Leon is returning from a three day human rights conference in New York City sponsored by an international organization. It started with a petition delivered to the United Nations on Thursday and ended with a presentation of American hostages and terrorism in Middle East.

We decided to participate because the agenda was open to atrocities in “other countries.” So the atrocities of parent alienation, lucrative custody battles and debtor prisons (child support abuses) were added to the agenda through our hand-outs of Dr. Koziol’s newly released report entitled “Custody Court Dysfunction: An American Human Rights Epidemic.”

You can get a copy by consulting earlier posts here at Leon Koziol.com. You can also obtain our Court Education Program at http://www.parentingrightsinstitute.com. This report is based on over three decades of litigation experience in these courts. It was distributed to a European documentary producer, international speakers and a policy advisor to Congress.

Anti-Corruption Rally Proposed in D.C. on June 19th

image (2)Proposed by the National League of Fathers, Inc. a rally in Washington is needed to send a message that we have had enough of the corruption of our parents and children in divorce and family courts. Yet another victim contacted us today after learning that his life threatening condition was traced to the abuses sustained in his divorce case.

It’s not the first time we’ve sponsored a rally in D.C. But numbers are required to make a real impact. You will not get justice typing on keyboards from the comfort of your homes, spending free time at bowling allies or pontificating at coffee shops. What Donald Trump and Bernie Sanders have shown us is that the people have gotten sick of our establishment.

That includes these courts. Our children have been turned into a trillion dollar industry with caring parents as collateral damage. We must demand change now and become a pivotal force in this year’s elections. An Anti-Corruption rally is the answer. Your help is critical to make this happen. Contact us at (315) 380-3420 to get involved !

For more information, a highly compelling report was recently made public here at Leon Koziol.com and it has gotten record views. Readers have demanded this rally and we are responding with today’s announcement. However we are volunteers operating on donations, and your assistance is crucial for us to follow through.

Our report (Parenting Rights Institute) was submitted to select groups and government agencies on the subject of a crisis developing among families victimized by divorce and custody processes. It discloses widespread abuses in courts across America which are now at epidemic levels. It can be downloaded at the following link: https://www.scribd.com/doc/309595636/Custody-Court-Dysfunction

Introduction

Future generations will look back on today’s domestic relations courts and be amazed at how truly barbaric they once were. A scheme of laws and processes derived from feudal equity doctrines has been retained which features loving parents engaged in brutal contests over their offspring in a public arena. A winner-take-all battle for custody leads to overregulation of families by the state and marginalization, alienation or outright extinction of one fit parent from the children’s lives. Anal investigations of the combatants’ backgrounds by self serving advisors incite further controversy to last a lifetime. It is a spectacle reminiscent of the Roman Coliseum.

No person or entity has ever been able to achieve a comprehensive study of the vast detriment which this archaic custody and support system has had upon our society. Any such effort would assuredly be stymied by the beneficiaries of a lucrative child control industry. However common sense dictates that our nation could be well served with sweeping reforms here in our least scrutinized branch of government. We can put a man on the moon, split atoms, engage artificial intelligence and achieve vast breakthroughs in medicine but remain unable to extricate family courts from their nineteenth century practices. This public initiative aims to do exactly that.

In recent decades, medical and psychiatric journals have identified various syndromes to explain diverse human illnesses. Post traumatic stress and parental alienation are examples limited to the symptoms of a far greater epidemic, a devastating silent killer depicted here as Custody Court Dysfunction. This report focuses not only on the symptomology of family suicides, homicides and psycho-somatic illness but the legal framework which produces the dysfunction. It seeks to establish a task force of legal, medical, social and religious experts to devise a joint remedy, to grow a movement that ends an alarming level of abuse caused by needless conflict and forensic referrals. I have described it as a trillion dollar operation akin to the tobacco and drug industries.

Typically studies are committed to non-legal experts to explore remedies for emerging social ills. Few reach the exclusivity of court operations that are highly protected from accountability. Indeed other professions benefit greatly from the aggravated harm created by these courts. In his book, After the Madness, former (convicted) Chief Justice Sol Wachtler of New York explains that judges are trained to think as gods. In United States v Cossey, 632 F.3d 82 (2nd Cir. 2011), a federal judge, Gary Sharpe, went so far as to discover a human gene without scientific support to sentence a man to a six year prison term. Reversed on appeal and removed from the case, he was cited for his omnipotence and damage to the reputation of our judiciary. The list goes on.

This report is drafted with personal experiences to lend credence and a sense of urgency to this public initiative. The text and footnotes alternate between first and third person usage so that the reader can better identify with the author as a parent victim and in his professional background. I am also seeking financial support behind a national organizing and speaking tour before impacted constituencies. These include veterans, military families, public safety officers, civil rights groups, family associations, chambers of commerce and high profile figures. This tour will focus on our two principal goals for bringing civility to America’s domestic relations courts:

1) Promotion of shared parenting laws in place of the antiquated custody scheme, and

2) Demand for transparency and accountability in a self regulated family court system.

All the while, he was self trained, generating a perfect record of acquittals in criminal jury cases. He received community service awards including dedication plaques on a new city courthouse.

Dr. Koziol’s civil rights work earned him interviews on the CBS Program 60 Minutes and front page of the New York Times, among other major media. A published book was discussed on CNN and his candidacy for United States Congress was a headline story in 2006. After years of complex litigation against high profile law firms, he secured final judgment in state Supreme Court invalidating the largest casino gaming compact in New York on constitutional grounds.

In education, a Juris Doctor degree was conferred by Northern Illinois University, College of Law with an award from the American Bar Association in State and Local Government. Leon received a Bachelor of Professional Studies degree from the State University of New York, and upon graduation, he joined the management team of a Fortune 500 manufacturer, later serving as a corporation counsel, school attorney and city councilman with a focus on risk management.

Various awards and scholarships round out his background in public service and government.

His first thriller-romance novel, Voyage to Armageddon, was published in 2014 and is available at major bookseller sites.

As a trial attorney and public advocate, Mr. Koziol exposed official misconduct at all levels of government, making him a predictable target of retribution. When he turned his focus to abuses inflicted upon parents in family courts, the retributions escalated within his profession after more than two decades of unblemished practice. It compelled him to seek recourse before the New York Moreland Commission on Public Corruption .

Dr. Koziol to Release Report on Judicial Censoring at International Conference

IMG_0239
Persecuted civil rights advocate, Dr. Leon R. Koziol, will be at the United Nations next week advocating for free speech, religious tolerance and fair treatment in America’s divorce and family courts.

Parental and Civil Rights Advocate, Dr. Leon Koziol, will release a report detailing judicial censorship of misconduct complaints in divorce and family courts.

The censorship of parents comes in the form of over regulation, retaliatory conditions, gag orders and orchestrated support delinquencies as a pretext for punitive incarceration.

There are many other modes of suppression which you may have experienced. Our children are exploited to incite needless controversy, lucrative therapies, and costly programs. They are trying to conform our diverse parenting practices into a utopian new world order.

And yet despite our constitutional status as a self governing nation, complaints of consequential alienation, needless suicides, school violence, declines in worker productivity and a health care crisis are being censored by an entrenched establishment.

An international Christian human rights organization will be addressing the United Nations regarding such issues on a global scale. Its weekend conference next week in New York City features world renowned speakers, and Leon has been invited.

The focus of the conference is to end oppression  of speech, religion and human rights by ISIS, China and “other countries.” Leon will show how such oppression is occurring right here in America under the guise of our children’s “best interests” (the almighty dollar).

He is also submitting related reports to Congress regarding an abused federal funding law known as Title IV-D of the Social Security Act (CPS and support enforcement). Another entitled Custody Court Dysfunction was released last week for reform purposes (fundraising).

Unfortunately the moral corruption of America continues with unscrupulous and often incompetent lawyers having no regard for the damage they cause to our society. Their mandatory custody framework is highly protected in place of shared parenting because it has become a gold mine.

If you’ve been following Leon’s sacrificial stance against his own profession, you know how the same courts seized his children, home and law license in retaliation for his reform efforts. He wants to organize a rally in Washington to make this a pivotal issue in the presidential elections.

Regrettably apathy remains. Typing on keyboards from the comfort of your homes to raise some kind of “awareness” to fellow victims and a universe that could care less will not reform anything. It may only cause more harm by sending a message of disunity and weakness.

Like other civil rights movements, families must unite and make a profound statement. The Team here at Leon Koziol.com and Parenting Rights Institute hopes you will help.

Trump’s Juggernaut: You Heard it First Here at Leon Koziol.com


Trump Campaign Rally in Albany, New York attended by entire team here at Leon Koziol.com

By Dr. Leon R. Koziol, parent advocate

Last August we ran a story on the Megyn Kelly debacle where we described Donald Trump as a juggernaut for the presidential election. That’s when there were over 10 candidates and he was being attacked on all fronts.

Today his juggernaut proved true as he took the New York Primary Election by a landslide eclipsing even Hillary Clinton’s victory margin  by at least 10 percentage points by an unofficial count.

Donald Trump is our best hope for court reform. The corruption in our judicial branch of government has received no attention. With a growing epidemic in divorce and family courts, shared parenting can become the norm to benefit families, health care and American productivity.

Indeed, Hillary’s ally, Governor Andrew Cuomo, shut down the Moreland Commission on Public Corruption just as parent testimony was reporting widespread corruption in these courts. Like Hillary’s e-mail scandal, he dodged accountability while leaders of the Legislature were convicted of federal crimes.

We will continue to advocate for all moms and dads victimized in these courts. Our Shared Parenting and Custody Dysfunction reports have been delivered personally to key staffers of the Trump campaign and we will keep you posted on developments.

New Report: Custody Court Dysfunction May Claim Your Children, Health and Livelihood

 

1217
Stay healthy, happy and out of custody court so your hard earnings can be spent on better things than lawyers, court induced addictions and lucrative evaluations

By Dr. Leon R. Koziol

Is anything worth your health? Do you enjoy fighting over your children while lawyers and court operatives disgorge you of your earnings and assets. If you have an income, children or assets of any kind, the sky’s the limit for conflict orchestrated by profiteers in custody court.

They’ll tell you it’s all in your children’s best interests when advised to file a contested divorce or family court petition for custody or support. But they’re really talking about their own children, if they even have them, where the fees you pay are ultimately spent.

Get the vital details in a new report released this past week by our public interest group, Parenting Rights Institute. Share it with your lawyer, obtain expert assistance, but most of all, get a real world perspective on how these courts truly operate.

It was authored by a parental advocate who spent more than two decades litigating in these courts. The alarming content is based on many months of research and interviews with divorce and family court victims from around the country.

We rely on donations to make such work possible. Your help is vital. This report must be shared with persons or entities with resources to help us open offices in every state. Custody Court Dysfunction is a growing epidemic traced to PTSD, Parent Alienation Syndrome, moral decay, health care costs and productivity declines in the workplace.

We also offer a Court Program for self-represented parents and those wishing to consider mediation and other litigation alternatives at http://www.parentingrightsinstitute.com.

Bernie Sanders Leading in one Poll Linked to Vermont Wall Proposal

index
“You’re no Barack Obama Hillary !”

By reporter Michael Fields

Yesterday we updated rumors of a wall that Hillary Clinton was proposing on New York’s border with Vermont. Today, on the eve of New York’s primary, she continued to deny the reports. However a recent poll showed that the wall issue has propelled Bernie Sanders to a lead among Democrat voters, particularly parents and grandparents.

On April 5, 2016, the New York Post ran a story suggesting that Hillary Clinton might as well build a wall on the Vermont border in light of her claims that New York’s gun and drug trafficking problems came from Vermont, the home state of her primary opponent Bernie Sanders. Yesterday it was learned that she may have a plan to do exactly that.

Fueled by the success of Donald Trump’s once ridiculed wall on Mexico, the Vermont wall was suggested at a closed door strategy session. It would span roughly 160 miles between Canada and Massachusetts, only a fraction of the length of Trump’s Wall. According to sources, the funding would come from casinos, the only growing industry in New York.

The proposal comes on the heels of Hillary’s thrashing by her Democrat primary opponent at the Battle of Brooklyn, the most recent debate which most observers agree was won resoundingly by Bernie Sanders. Reputable fact checkers had debunked her claims that New York’s gun and heroin problem was caused by drug lords in Vermont.

Hillary’s debunked claims, however, have caused voters to question her capacity to be president for all of our states and communities. According to one New Yorker contacted near the Vermont border, the two states have had a great relationship with family and friends that crossed that border for recreational, education and employment purposes.

“What a sleazy move,” remarked a fisherman from Plattsburgh, New York. “Just because Vermont is a small state does not mean she can just cut it off from the rest. What if I don’t vote for Hillary, does that mean my county or village will also be dumped on by her? Whatever happened to her It Takes a Village book? Whose village is she working for?”

Another set-back the same night made the Clinton campaign desperate for a rebound.  Transcripts belatedly released by the State Department to Judicial Watch, a government watchdog, revealed that Clinton had knowingly lied to the American people and our allies about the Benghazi attacks which imperiled our soldiers abroad.

In yet another set-back, Florida prosecutors threw out a complaint against Cory Lewandowski, campaign manager for Donald Trump. A woman reporter’s career was destroyed after feminist agitators influenced Michelle Fields to file a bogus battery charge strictly to derail Trump’s juggernaut on  the presidential election.

Contacted at a rally in Syracuse, Mr. Lewandowski was asked for his response to the latest development in the Clinton camp.

“Does she realize that most of Vermont’s border with her home state is under Lake Champlain. In some places it’s 400 feet deep. That would make the Hillary wall bigger than anything with Mexico.”

Also at the rally, Trump’s New York manager, Carl Palladino echoed those concerns.

“The obvious question I have about Hillary’s Wall is whose going to pay for it? Fellow Americans in Vermont? New York is already the most taxed state in America.”

Bernie Sanders, campaigning in Rome, Italy (not Rome, New York), had this to say in a skyped interview:

“Did she finally throw a tissy fit? All those drug traffickers in my little home state would simply drive around her wall through Massachusetts. Is she gonna cut off all of New England now?  Last time someone tried that was the British in 1777. By the way, you know their leader wants to bar Trump from campaigning in that country.”

Quick to escape New York less than a week before its primary, Hillary Clinton was contacted at a fundraising gala in California sponsored by oil sheikhs from Benghazi. Here is what she had to say about the campaign leak, reproduced (unedited) from a recorder:

“I thought I told you already, it’s lying Ted Cruz behind all this. I would never be so stupid as to propose a wall on the Vermont border, and I didn’t need you to correct me, Michelle,  about it being underwater. I once took a boat on Lake Champlain to Plattkill.”

Reporter: “You mean Plattsburgh, the place you just mentioned is in the Catskills south of there.”

Hillary: “Whatever, look I’m from Arkansas, not New York. I only went there to get elected president. Ted is right. We don’t like New York values where Bill and I come from, especially after Carmelo Anthony and the Syracuse Orange stole that basketball title from Kansas.”

Reporter: “Look I’m just trying to help out Hil, you’re sounding like an opportunist on anything that comes along. Not very presidential. Trump’s probably gonna say ‘You’re no Barack Obama’ if you get into a national debate. Your wall is not going over very well. Vermont is a state not a separate country like Mexico, and it’s looking like you really don’t know New York.”

Hillary: “Don’t go there Michelle, I know my history. Did you know that Vermont was not one of our original thirteen states? It was a foreign country like Canada. And how about all those carpetbaggers who came south after the Civil War. We didn’t appreciate them telling us how to run our own states. What’s wrong with a little reverse history?”

Reporter: “Well for starters, Hil, you claimed to cross the border without knowing that the real port of Plattsburgh was the turning point in the War of 1812. We beat the British navy there.”

Hillary (interrupting): “Who cares about any of that in California? Voters are lucky to remember yesterday. I should know as an expert politician and lawyer.  I fooled them in New York twice on the Senate race so I’m a shoe-in there.”

Reporter: “Well they’re going to raise questions about your wall now that it’s been leaked and you don’t wanna be raising Vermont as a foreign country. California and Texas were also separate countries once and…”

Hillary (interrupting again): “I know, I know, so was Hawaii but not recent enough to keep Obama out when I ran against him.”

Reporter: “And as for carpetbagging, isn’t that what you were doing with that village thing during Bill’s term, telling parents how to raise their children?”

Hillary: “Alright you got me there. No one’s going to expect me to know all these places and history trivia. Why anyone would want to live north or south of Westchester is beyond me too. Black flies and voters on CP time in either direction.”

Reporter: “You know, you’re lucky you didn’t use the ‘N’ word in that stupid skit with DeBlasio. What were you thinking Hil? This isn’t Arkansas and it sure ain’t Kansas. You’re lucky you escaped New York when you did.”

Hillary: “You’re one to talk Michelle. Here you are in a guy’s suit pretending to be a male reporter after that Lewinsky fiasco. You’re just another media liar out to make a name for herself. I don’t have time for this. I have more important people to talk to.”

Reporter: “You mean Lewandowski. Monica’s the other woman you destroyed. You’re the people who duped me into filing that bogus charge for political gain, not for any woman’s rights cause. After Breitbart fired me, no one would hire me. I was lucky to get this job with the most censored blog site in America.”

Hillary: “Sorry about that, really I am.  But just remember, this conversation is off the record. Damn, Michelle, what’s it gonna take before you people believe in anything I got to say?”

Reporter: “I think that’s what every voter in America is asking.”
