Where Does a Self-Governing Society Find the First Amendment Today?

Parent Alienation in Family Court: A Neglected Public Issue

In today’s news we find at least three parents who lost their children to untimely deaths: a 13 year old boy discovered under a snow pile on his parent’s homestead, a Syracuse University track star found dead in her Times Square hotel room and a woman pulled from her car in a lake. The headlines are predictable. Stricken parents lament their losses as the worst of nightmares.

Yet similar losses are occurring every day in our nation’s family courts.  Through an insidious process known as child alienation, parents are being deprived of their children in order to feed a trillion dollar divorce industry. Time and again our media ignores this vital news story. We are even forced to learn that the New York Times was preoccupied on the same day as these tragic losses with a photo cropping scheme to defraud the public into believing that George Bush was absent from a civil rights rally in Selma, Alabama.

Does First Amendment tampering get any worse than this? As a civil rights advocate who successfully prosecuted numerous cases, this “Scheme at Selma” is no small event for a self governing society. It comes in the wake of an NBC news anchor who falsely reported an attack upon his helicopter, raising serious interferences with national security.  And it begs the question: where do we go today for our First Amendment rights? What good is our speech if the press has seriously breached the trust reposed to it under the same amendment? Where do we get all the news that’s fit to print when the press has joined in the corruption of our government?

It was depressing enough to learn of the arrest of New York’s top Assembly Leader on bribery charges that implicate lawyers, judges and possibly the Governor himself. We know now why he prematurely disbanded his Moreland Commission on Public Corruption. As one of the few invited speakers, I raised the subject of family court corruption but it was suppressed along with the Commission. Then, of course, there is the liberal cover-up of Hillary Clinton’s private government. That’s a lot of corruption for the American public to digest in so short a time.

However in our nation’s family courts, the corruption may be far more damaging to the average citizen. We take for granted that parents will fight over custody and support of our children and assume that these courts are the proper forums for resolution. But the custody framework is antiquated and highly dysfunctional. It actually breeds needless conflict and bad parents. At least one Supreme Court Justice described these same courts as kangaroo operations and the misconduct is growing here on an alarming scale. In my own work as a parental advocate, I have reiterated the proof time and again through personal experience.

For example, Syracuse family judge Bryan Hedges was removed from my custody case for “political espionage” and from the bench altogether for sexual misconduct upon his five year old handicapped niece. A judge in Lowville, New York was discovered fabricating college degrees in a scheme to impute support income in retaliation for my public criticisms, a Michigan judge was removed for presiding over a child support case involving a mother he impregnated in chambers, and two Pennsylvania judges are doing time in prison for a “Kids for Cash” scandal which necessitated the reversal of 4,000 juvenile convictions. My list goes on, and it reads like a docket sheet in any criminal court.

So where’s the outrage? Where are the people? Where is the modern day Selma protests over the corruption of our children? On March 1, 2015, I released a 25-page report titled “We Are Fathers” in an effort to incite long overdue protests and reform. It is the product of two decades as a trial attorney observing the misconduct first hand and tolerating all I could until my own children were harmed. I can identify with the likes of Curt Schilling when he hunts down the cyber bullies who trashed his daughter, but the average victims of family court corruption have no one to look out for them. They comprise the walking dead in our society today.

On March 18, 2015, I will be starting a speaking tour in Nashville with the goal of sparking a national reform campaign. My report provides startling insights into an insidious trend which is harming our families, health care, moral fiber and productivity as a nation. A six point action plan is set out which invites you to participate by supporting a rally in our nation’s capital this June and by donating the necessary funds to facilitate the campaign. We are currently engaged in soliciting public figures and benefactors to oppose a powerful opposition of bar associations and political insiders. We cannot ignore this project. Kindly give us your assistance today because time is of the essence as our First Amendment continues to  break down in this country. It is time for us to take this particular law into our own hands.

COUNTRY MUSIC AGENTS RESPOND TO “WE ARE FATHERS” CAMPAIGN

o-MIRANDA-LAMBERT-facebook

Miranda Lambert, Dierks Bentley, Kix Brooks and Jason Aldean among early Responders to Leon Koziol’s “We Are Fathers” Project in Nashville

As followers of this site know, Parental Rights Advocate Leon Koziol will be in Nashville this month to promote his recent nationwide reform initiative “We Are Fathers.” On March 1, 2015, a 25-page Public Initiative Summary was released which describes a serious “fatherless crisis” in America today together with a six point action plan to bring shared parenting and accountability to our nation’s divorce and family courts. It was quickly shared with celebrities, public interest groups and major potential benefactors across the country.

On March 18, 2015, Dr. Koziol will begin his promotional tour in Nashville sponsored by an attendee of the Family Law Reform Conference held in November at our nation’s capital. In December, this person responded to a home exchange proposal by offering to accommodate Dr. Koziol in Nashville to meet with family reform advocates. We have not been able to divulge all of the details behind this developing venture but can now state that we are seeking to open our nation’s very first fathers’ outreach center in that city. This center will provide diverse victims with personal support of the kind which no therapist, lawyer or government servant can.

To that end, Dr. Koziol has been talking directly with agents of industry, business, public interest groups and celebrities. In less than a week, he has been able to get promising responses from some unexpected confidential sources. In Nashville, he has focused on business people, country music agents and such groups as the First Amendment Center at Vanderbilt University. Anyone who has followed our work knows that Dr. Koziol has been censored, targeted and punished by the state for his free speech, hence the First Amendment Center was yet another good reason to start this campaign in Nashville.

Today we bring you a startling contrast between responses from a number of country music agents. We begin with Miranda Lambert. Regrettably, her agent advised that she would not be able to help fund the “We Are Fathers” project but she was professional and complimentary of our funding request:

“Hello Leon, Unfortunately we have to pass on participating in the promotion of We Are Fathers. As you may know, Miranda is a big dog lover and spends a lot of time on that charitable endeavor. Due to the high volume of requests we receive of this nature, all worthwhile of course and impossible to decide which ones to be able to make happen, we feel that her efforts are most beneficial by focusing her time on her MuttNation Foundation and other animal related charities as they are closest to her heart. All the best. Dara Foutch.”

Another response comes from The Greenroom. This is the agency which represents Country Music Singers Dierks Bentley, Kix Brooks and Jason Aldean. After discussing our worthy project with agent Kristie Sheppard Sloan (Her Email Address), a one line response came the following day:

“Hi Leon. To be honest, I don’t believe any of our clients apply to this situation.”

The word “apply” caught our immediate attention because it was difficult to give it any sense. Was she saying that the three singers we were focused upon had no father interests? Could it be possible that Kristie, their agent, was not representing them properly given all the fathers who are their loyal fans? To help answer such questions, we looked a bit further into the singers’ backgrounds to learn of some startling contradictions. On the very day that agent Kristie Sloan was sending us her peculiar one-liner, Kix Brooks was being honored later the same evening with the first-ever CMA Foundation Humanitarian award at an event held at the Nashville’s City Winery. According to one beneficiary of his many public service causes:

“Kix doesn’t think about why he shouldn’t do something, he thinks about why he should.”

This comment at the event came from Victor Sansone, CEO of Operation Finally Home, a charitable organization committed to building homes for our injured war heroes. It is a cause which can be compared with ours insofar as “We Are Fathers” is highly focused on providing shared parenting homes for our returning soldiers. Yet somehow, according to Kristie Sloan anyway, Kix Brooks does not apply. How can she know this on the very same day as such an award? We were focused on Leon “Kix” Brooks III because of his background as a loving father, his radio program which promotes patriotic causes and recent film successes.

Next we took a closer look at Dierks Bentley to discover that he too was a curious subject for a “does not apply” response. As a loving father of three, he would easily identify with parents wrongfully denied contact with their children in our dysfunctional family courts. Jason Aldean has been a long time donor and fundraiser for breast cancer, a gender specific charity which places him high on a list of potential participants in a gender specific cause such as fathers’ outreach. As we continue to grow our campaign, we ask you to contact the three singers represented by Kristie Sheppard Sloan to urge their direct review of the “We Are Fathers” project summary in her possession.
