Hope for Alienated Parents during the Holidays: Help victims by sharing the short video here

NOTE: The above video is reproduced in text below

Merry Christmas and Happy Holidays.

My name is Leon Koziol, a parent advocate who practiced law in federal and state courts. I am also a parent victimized for my exposure of court corruption. As a result, my livelihood was destroyed and my precious daughters alienated from me.

I am therefore well positioned to address this phenomenon known as parental alienation, and I am here today to give hope to fellow victims. So stay with me, it’s worth your time.

This video may lead to parent-child reunions or, at the very least, prevent harm to families and future generations. It verifies that you are not alone in your struggles. Parent alienation is now a national crisis, and the courts that caused it require overhauls.

But it requires much more. We must unite to get our Justice Department to open a human rights investigation. Because federal funds deliver such outcomes, Congress must also step up with public hearings to study misappropriations. Child custody has become a pay-to-parent scandal as I will elaborate.

To that end I need your help to bring parental alienation to the forefront of national policy. All of us have a stake in this, whether or not a parent, because the injustices harm our extended families, health care systems, community interests, worker productivity, education and law enforcement.

Yes, parental alienation has reached crisis levels, but it is being ignored as part of a lucrative framework for adjudication which still infects our divorce and family courts. Judges there end parent-child relationships with little or no cause to serve the growing demands of a lawyer glut that has invaded our society.

There are now more than 300,000 lawyers in California and New York alone anxious to advance their fee interests. There is scant accountability for the greed they generate through needless conflict, and the resulting carnage is ripe for public outrage. But we have to channel that outrage to achieve overdue reforms.

To begin with, it should be no shock that any conscientious attorney who makes a stand against his profession will be targeted. My whistleblower activity elicited horrific retributions which I seriously underestimated. Their brazen nature can be explained by the gold mine I was threatening.

Despite my unblemished reputation and principled litigation for more than 23 years, I was deprived of my children, assets and income capacity while subjected to inflated support obligations to justify a jail term for violations. It left me alone to pursue recourse in creative ways including a stint in Paris, France.

With that behind me, I can now proceed with undivided loyalty to a joint mission because there is little else that can be done to scare me off. I will get to the hypocrisy of family judges shortly. But for now, let us look at those who facilitate parent alienation.

Despite being charged with a duty of dispensing justice, protecting our liberties and assuring equal treatment, there are too many judges violating that duty when they turn a blind eye to this crisis. But make no mistake, parent alienation is a legalized form of child abduction fueled by profits and revenues.   

If you’re a victim, you already know that these abductions are real. When your offspring are seized by your own government, a part of you goes with it. You then become isolated, dreading these festive holidays because of the pain they bring.

Like a solar eclipse, the lack of love or contact with your children darkens your spirits and may lead to dire reactions. Parent suicides, homicides and child murders are on the rise.

This carnage stems from an antiquated child custody system derived from a day when moms stayed home and dads worked. In contrast with shared parenting models, custody laws require parents to fight over their offspring for a winner-take-all award. It can become a brutal contest that pits loved ones against each other and their government, breeding new forms of evil.

Despite a professed concern, judges welcome these battles because they are rewarded by the number and size of support orders they issue. This comes in the way of federal grants that few know about under Title IV-D of the Social Security Act.

We’re talking billions of dollars annually in revenues for the states and astronomical fees for service providers. Like the tobacco, drug and tech industries, you are merely their pawns, collateral damage to quench unmitigated greed. Sure, you can complain endlessly on social media to wanna-be lawyers with voo-doo advice, but no one with influence is paying attention.

So why aren’t these judges, lawyers and service providers being held accountable? Well for starters, you have to recall that judges are lawyers on the bench. Because they wear robes and enter tribunals with great fanfare does not eliminate that reality.

As for oversight, a single statewide commission that meets sporadically is routinely overwhelmed. Reports show that California and New York investigate only ten percent of complaints. It’s mostly window-dressing as the band plays on.

Beyond that, it would be a hypocrisy for judges to admonish their own, a blemish on high office. So let’s examine a much greater hypocrisy about that high office and its ethics.

My custody judge, Bryan Hedges, was banned from the bench after admitting to sexual abuse of his handicapped five-year old niece. What sort of thought was he harboring while interrogating children in private chambers? I was fortunate to have him removed from my case before my girls could be traumatized.

His replacement, Michael Hanuszczak, was then exposed for sexual harassment of his court clerks. Yet another, Gerald Popeo, was censured for threats and racist remarks from the bench. A record forty trial jurists were removed from my originally uncontested divorce.

Although much of this can be explained by proper self-recusals, others abused office to discredit my public message. Mine is only one case. How can you know if your judge is taking a bribe to fix a custody case as Gerald Garson and Thomas Spargo were in New York? Both were apprehended by chance and convicted.

Or how about Michigan Judge Wade McCree who impregnated a litigant in chambers. He was exposed only because he was a married man. The adversary in that case then sought recourse but was denied on grounds of judicial immunity. It begs the question: Is judge adultery in court a protected act? Seriously?

Then there’s the kids for cash scandal in Pennsylvania and the list goes on. But now let’s turn to the victims. Thomas Ball, a father and veteran, burned himself alive on the steps of a court to protest extended separations from his child. No major outcry, no national exposure. They merely swept his ashes into a sewer.

Joe Longo, a police investigator exited support court only to secure his own justice by committing a murder-suicide at the former marital home using a common kitchen knife. It left four children without parents and a permanent end to child support.

Walter Scott could no longer endure recurring terms in a debtor prison, so it was no surprise that he ran unarmed from a support warrant at a traffic stop. But it was a shock when the cop gave chase and elected to shoot his target dead five times in the back.

That cop is now doing time in a federal prison. Police officers should be doing police work. Instead, they are being exploited as debt collectors. It raises another question of whether government is now killing for money. Without a concealed by-stander and video, this cop would have gotten away with his false reports.

Only last month, Chad Read was also shot dead unarmed by the boyfriend of his son’s mother. That killer interrupted an argument between the parents during a child exchange at her home. Such arguments occur every day across the country.

But now, picking up your children can become a scene from the wild west as the killer’s lawyer claims self-defense under a no-retreat law in Texas. Is it any wonder that many parents today are walking away from their responsibilities, yet another form of alienation? A human being can handle only so much court insanity only to be blamed for it with costly psychiatric exams.  

And how about the children who are supposedly being protected by those courts? Two-year old, Gabriella Boyd, was murdered by her mother in 2018 rather than surrender to a custody change order. She is now serving a life sentence.

Eight-year old, Thomas Valva, died of hypothermia due to the abuse of his NYPD father last year, and two-year old, Kyra Franchetti, was victim of a murder-suicide by her father who burned down their home. A news reporter disclosed that more than 700 deaths are not publicized by child protection agencies.

This holiday season, countless moms and dads will be denied contact with their little ones. Meanwhile parent alienators will be working overtime to brainwash them to hate the other parent. Their motivations are boundless and often psychotic.

Here at my websites, You-Tube channel, publications and reform events around the country, you can obtain highly qualified options for taking action to stop the carnage. Judges, lawyers and politicians only respond to numbers and influence. 

First, visit my personal site, Leon Koziol.com for updates and valuable information. There is no legal fee for this. You can also subscribe to my talk program, Leon’s Library, on YouTube.

Second, log on to the Parenting Rights Institute website. The programs there focus on mediation, self-help and strategies to keep you out of these courts. It may save you thousands in fees.

Third, in dire matters, contact the Citizen Commission Against Corruption, a nonprofit doing the job of oversight agencies. Precedent litigation is among our weapons. Your donations are tax deductible, without which we cannot fight special interests.

Fourth, my newly published book, Whistleblower in Paris, provides education and intrigue. It can be obtained at any Barnes and Noble store, Amazon or major bookseller on-line.

Fifth, I have published a citizen petition against parent alienation on Change.org. All you have to do is sign it, short and simple.  

Finally, you can join any of the reform events I sponsor around the country. They include a three-day gathering known as the Parent March on Washington which I hope to repeat.

In 2019, it featured a lobby day in Congress, expert speakers at a hotel ballroom, a march down Pennsylvania Avenue under police escort, and a candlelight vigil for the lives lost in these matters. Currently a networking program, Amber Appeal, is underway to provide information regarding absentee children.        

Spread this holiday message, a genuine gift for countless victims. You can also contact me directly at (315) 796-4000.

Thank you. Merry Christmas and God Bless!

Amber Appeal: Help me find my alienated daughters, Kristen and Cassandra Koziol

By Dr. Leon Koziol

Parenting Rights Institute

Amber Appeal: It’s a new concept I have devised to help parents locate their alienated children. As a victim of severe parental alienation (PAS), it was easy for me to identify with fellow victims across the country. After New York’s family court system unloaded on me as an attorney whistleblower, I was forced to navigate through the jungle of non-custodial parenting. This subjected me to one of the worst cases of legalized child abduction.

Like most, my ordeal is a torturous one summarized on my website, www.leonkoziol.com and my newly published book, Whistleblower in Paris. I am offering this parent assistance program with the hope that readers will help me find my daughters, Kristen and Cassandra Koziol. Last I knew, they were attending college, one rumored to be at Virginia Tech in her freshman year and the other, a sophomore in Albany, New York or Stony Brook, Long Island.

The peculiar circumstances of their missing nature led me to conclude that I would never learn of their condition if something bad were to happen to them. It’s a horrible thought but true. The recently re-married “custodial parent” (I refuse to call her a mother anymore) made a hurried exit from our region only days after my youngest turned 18. That parent is Kelly (Hawse-Koziol) Usherwood, formerly residing at 16 Terrace Hill Drive; New Hartford, New York.

After delivering a birthday present to that location in late, August, 2021, I discovered a “For Sale” sign on the front lawn. An electronic message thereafter stated simply that the custodial parent was moving to points unknown with a contact address at the ex-mother-in-law’s home. Such an option was designed to “push my buttons” as those familiar with this woman would say because I had a hideous rapport with that ex in-law and she could not be trusted anyway.

My suspicion of deviate behavior grew when circumstances demonstrated that Kelly Usherwood was using nefarious e-mails to communicate with me. She was playing daughter until her escape could be completed. By all indications, the newlywed husband was unaware of this when he greeted me at the former home to receive the birthday present. A decent man with adult children, he would be oblivious to the antics of the real woman he had just married.

As I re-examined our e-mail exchanges, I noted all capital letters in the first name of my eldest daughter and an extra middle initial and abbreviated last name of the youngest. This deception would pattern the absence of an “l” character from my own e-mail address which was used five years earlier to fake a re-location notice to the home of her last partner Joseph Flihan. That scam came to a head when I was forced to seek (in vain) a custody change before Judge Daniel King.

Unfortunately, this was the same judge who had just placed a gag order on my website. That order was removed when I challenged it in New York Supreme Court. Judge King stepped down days later after putting the parental alienation in motion. He did this in retaliation for my damning testimony regarding his incompetence before the Moreland Commission on Public Corruption. He recklessly used two college degrees I had never earned to elevate my support obligations. It’s in the record, I’m not making this up.

Joe Flihan quickly ended his partnership with Kelly, no doubt as a result of these revelations and needless proceedings. The scam artist then became a victim of her own folly as she was forced to return to her humble home. And like most alienators, she placed the entire blame on me. I could do nothing to offset the poisoned minds of my daughters who were already alienated and had refused to converse or visit with me since the move to that home in 2014.

You would think that this scam artist would have learned a lesson from it all, but in the course of pretending to be my daughters in the last (September, 2021) e-mail, she emphasized that she (my daughters) still “loved Joe.” One could assume that she would again suffer from her latest folly if her new husband, Lou Usherwood, learned of this. But with bizarre relationships, swing partners, and other moral depravity these days, who knows what anyone thinks anymore.

Critical to this appeal, if it succeeds, the process could be repeated to benefit other victims. It could become a highly beneficial program, an offset to severe parental alienation, and a reform weapon against a lucrative, antiquated and dysfunctional custody system. We cannot all become sleuths, but could certainly assist one another to achieve the justice we were denied. In one anonymous letter, I was informed that Lou Usherwood resided in Oswego County, New York.

As an FYI, there has never been a complaint to any child protection agency, no criminal record or finding of unfit parenting to justify the retaliation and alienation inflicted on me. Indeed prison inmates get better treatment from our courts. In coming posts, I will reveal more details with the hope that good folks out there will help. At the very least, every parent has a right to know where his or her children reside.

If you or someone you know has helpful information, call me at (315) 796-4000 or mail it to 1336 Graffenburg Road; New Hartford, New York 13413.   

Enjoy Delmonico’s Festive Restaurants for their support of Dads during the Holidays

Delmonico’s Italian Steakhouse Restaurants are noted for their superb atmosphere, nostalgic music, fine food and a staff that really makes you feel at home. On Fathers’ Day 2021, I waited patiently for my daughters Kristen and Cassandra to show up for a Fathers’ Day dinner that we had not shared in years. They never showed, not even a courtesy call, thanks to our dysfunctional family courts, Judge Daniel King and vindictive custodial parent, Kelly (Hawse) Usherwood. She worked overtime for many years to alienate them from me.

It’s a standard feature these days when lawyers concoct false petitions as a custody tactic to incite lucrative conflict between cooperating parents. Never mind the consequences to innocent children and families on such occasions, there are easy fees to be collected and federal revenues to be earned in this manner. As a dedicated dad and former civil rights attorney, I can attest to the carnage reflected by my gross mistreatment on this special day, another retribution for a conscientious stand against my profession.

Although unaware of my personal crisis on that day, I was fortunate to receive a Fathers’ Day gift from restaurant management at the Utica, New York location, 147 North Genesee Street, just south of New York Thruway exit 31 (I-90). It brought me a measure of unexpected happiness, and I took advantage of that gift with a fine steak dinner today (Sunday, December 12, 2021) for the holidays. It was a dinner coupon which was soon to expire. What a sweet Christmas present as I will again be denied my precious daughters this holiday season.

We should all thank the Delmonico’s restaurant chain for their ongoing faith in families, American traditions, their loyal patrons and making our days so special. You will see their locations in upstate New York and Orlando, Florida on the gift card attached to this post above. Treat yourself to a visit flavored by the timely photos below. You will be overjoyed at the experience. Stay in touch with our crusade for justice and shared parenting at Citizen Commission Against Corruption and http://www.leonkoziol.com.

Syracuse vs Villanova: A Fathers Rights Classic

The storm is upon us as time runs out to unmask an alluring image of our divorce and family courts

Tonight’s college basketball game between Syracuse and Villanova harkens back to an incident twelve years ago when a member of the National League of Fathers, Inc. called in requesting a postponement of a meeting so that he could experience the same rivalry at the Carrier Dome.

Tonight’s game at 9 pm EST will be played at Madison Square Garden as part of the Jimmy V (Valvano) Classic, so it is unlikely that a similar request will be made. However, the phone conversation, as recalled today, helps explain why fathers continue to be discriminated in our nation’s divorce and family courts.

Unlike the hard-hitting advocates for special interests and women’s rights, many fathers or men’s rights groups continue to be misguided in their priorities. Some assume that fathers are inherently incapable of being parents and require education of some kind. Others feed the stereotype by recommending therapy and inspirational guidance (reimagination).

Still others cannot see the forest for the trees, providing no lobbying effort to secure meaningful reform. They view public protests as a gesture in futility, something beneath their high status, when laziness or depression is the true explanation. Finally, there are the self-appointed, voodoo lawyers giving useless advice while contributing nothing to the cause (keyboard warriors in the comfort of their homes).

The long-ago conversation mirrors what continues today, and it went something like this:

“Hey, this is Adam, and I’m wondering if you could postpone tonight’s meeting because Syracuse is playing Villanova at the Dome, and a lot of guys are going.”

“Well it’s too late for that, maybe you should’ve called sooner because too many dads are already attending our meeting. We can’t just cancel for a basketball game.”

“Too bad, ’cause more of us would be at your meeting if it could be changed. That’s just common sense.”

“Alright, let’s look at common sense. You’re asking us to postpone a long-scheduled meeting of concerned citizens so that you could attend a game which goes something like this: a group of five guys runs down a shiny wooden floor to throw an orange ball into the air with the hope it falls through a white net. When that happens, the scoreboard lights up and a bunch of people jump up and down with applause. That routine goes on until the group with the highest points finishes in time. Have I got this right?”

“No need to break my balls, I was just making a suggestion.”

“Break your balls? Seriously? Because while you’re playing with your balls, orange, white or brown, your opponents in the real world are getting bills passed and lobbying to preserve a gold mine with this antiquated, lucrative and incendiary child custody system. You were insulting all the hard work we do with that lame request, sacrifices that you take for granted. This is why you keep getting your butts kicked in divorce and family courts.”

“So how’s your meeting going to help me?”

“This is not all about you, and we can’t do much for you anyway while you’re at some ball game. Beyond that, without donations to rival the millions used to protect a gold mine, we can only do what we can. Our meeting seeks to turn the tide of a fatherless society that is causing suicides among veterans, escalating violence in our schools, crime in the neighborhoods and a total breakdown of moral fiber. You do understand this, don’t you?”

“Oh go screw yourself, you guys don’t know what you’re doing anyway. I may only have a GED, but I can do better.”

“Where, at tonight’s bleachers, jumping and yelling to no one who cares?”

DIAL TONE …

Censored: Who is Alec Baldwin to compare Governor DeSantis to cult leader Jim Jones after his 2008 suicide disclosures?

Dr. Leon Koziol (fully vaccinated by choice)

Parenting Rights Institute

NOTE:

This post, first published yesterday, September 14, 2021, was derailed from its normal track on this website and Facebook, thereby denying the public access to vital information that is central to our First Amendment value system. American military sacrifice daily for these rights but Big Tech, Big Pharma and now Big Family are trampling all over them to transform our society into a socialist one. You see the proof everywhere in the way of retail establishments closed due to a lack of staffing.

For this reason we are re-publishing this post with the hope that you will help defend our rights on the domestic front by making it viral. Our site, http://www.leonkoziol.com, has been the target of various government entities offended by publications that accurately expose public corruption. Such censorship includes a family court gag order disguised as a protection order which was removed after a challenge in New York Supreme Court in 2016. At one time, we received thousands of shares or likes on various posts. Today we are lucky to get a few.

Censorship? Fear of identification, association or retaliation? Whatever the explanation, it is entirely un-American and typical of the regimes we confront overseas. We do not expect agreement with all our reports or opinions but excluding certain ones is nothing more than an attempt to conform us all to a single thought or way of life. The number who seriously misunderstand free speech and press is staggering. But rest assured, our postings do not coddle hypocrites who exploit their fame to influence public discourse with wild, reckless and highly disparaging analogies. This is one such example:

_____________________________________________________________________________________________________

Hollywood headlines today in Breitbart and other news outlets featured Alec Baldwin comparing Florida governor Ron DeSantis to cult leader Jim Jones who caused over 900 suicides among his followers in a South America commune 40 years ago. The radical liberal actor was making the radical comparison of face mask freedoms to suicide by those who fail to comply with federal Covid-19 mandates.

This bizarre comparison was obviously designed for shock effect and not genuine public safety given the actor’s periodic aspirations for public office. But it is seriously infected with grave hypocrisy after the actor’s suicide revelations in his 2008 book, A Promise to Ourselves. At page 183, he itemizes such things as a hike deep into the woods to shoot himself, overdosing at a bed and breakfast, and daily thoughts of jumping out his apartment window in Manhattan.

It was all headline news back then after a vulgar answering machine message was made public during a contentious divorce with Kim Basinger. Baldwin’s book was intended to influence a reform of our divorce courts which caused parental alienation and phone messages such as this one. But the actor’s suicide disclosures stole the media hype, taking the focus away from the book’s main objective.

I attended Alec’s book-signing in New York and was pleased to add our group to his cause, but he exited the movement as quickly as he entered the fray, no doubt to avoid further damage to his acting career caused by his status as a controversial whistleblower. Unfortunately in doing so, he crushed the hopes he created among countless other victims.

Suicide choices may have been Baldwin’s right in reaction to a contentious divorce. But that right has no place in a discussion over vaccination choices. And it cannot be excused simply because a famous actor chooses a different one from fellow citizens. How many other divorce victims have been moved to consider suicide based on this actor’s book disclosures? And can we then make the comparison of Alec Baldwin’s influences to that of Jim Jones?

Needless parental alienations and the suicides they cause formed an impetus for my own (newly released) book on divorce court corruption titled, Whistleblower in Paris. Alec Baldwin’s time would be better spent promoting this book especially after he orphaned fellow divorce reformists years ago. Get a free insight on that reform at http://www.whistleblowerinparis.com. And here is the relevant excerpt from Alec Baldwin’s book, reprinted at page 21 of my book:

Brad Pitt and Angelina Jolie are the latest victims of divorce and parent alienation after decades of failed reforms

Dr. Leon Koziol, Director

Parenting Rights Institute

Unless the California Supreme Court thinks otherwise, Brad Pitt and Angelina Jolie will have to start their five year divorce all over again after a middle level appeals court disqualified their trial judge in July, 2021. That judge had awarded the couple joint custody and 50/50 parenting time, a proper outcome if one abides by the laws of nature, common sense and gender equality. After all, there was no finding of unfit parenting on either side here.

But unfortunately, divorce and family courts throughout the country do not operate under that logical framework. They continue to deliberate under the antiquated foundation of custody awards, lawyer profits and court revenues supplied by federal entitlement laws known as Title IV-D of the Social Security Act. 42 USC 651 et. seq. It is a funding law which incentivizes court conflict while causing an inherent bias among decision makers who benefit financially over the number and size of support orders they issue.

The Pitt-Jolie trial judge was actually selected by agreement as a way of avoiding publicity and harm to the couple’s five children over which a custody battle had been underway. But like so many cases, that objective was lost as the legal teams on both sides found ways to inject strategies to increase their fees many times over. By the time this fiasco is concluded, most of the impacted children will be in college or capable of emancipation from these parent contestants.

How is any of this now in the so-called “best interests of the child,” that tired old justification used by these courts to seize jurisdiction over such matters? It is a seizure based on a judge-made doctrine dating back to feudal England, known as parens patriae, and carried over to the courts here despite its conflict with our Constitution. It is also the source of legal authority used to establish a child custody framework tailored to a period when moms stayed home as caregivers while dads went off to work for support purposes.

A shared parenting model remains elusive even well into the 21st century because it is a serious threat to a service provider’s gold mine. Under an ideal model, parents would not be required to name a “custodial parent” as a condition for legal separation or a valid divorce decree. Instead, the focus would be on two reasonably fit parents (in this day and age) who are treated as co-equal figures.

Under a shared model, the arbitrary remand of one parent to the inferior and stigmatizing role of “noncustodial parent” would not be in play unless serious abuse or neglect was found by an independent state agency. In most divorce cases, such agencies are not even involved. Nevertheless, unscrupulous lawyers are allowed to concoct all sorts of reasons to select one parent over the other in a “winner-take-all” contest reminiscent of the Roman Coliseum.

Indeed, here is what a veteran judge stated to justify his revolutionary departure from this antiquated custody framework in the case of Webster v Ryan, 729 NYS2d 315 (Albany Fam. Ct. 2001) at fn. 1:

At the outset, the Court notes that the terms ‘custody’ and ‘visitation’ have outlived their usefulness. Indeed their use tends to place any discussion and allocation of family rights into an oppositional framework. ‘Fighting for custody’ directs the process towards determining winners and losers. The children, always in the middle, usually turn out to be the losers…

This Court has abandoned the use of the word ‘visitation’ in its Orders, using the phrase ‘parenting time’ instead. If the word ‘custody’ did not so permeate our statutes and was not so ingrained into our psyches, that word would be the next to go… This misplaced focus draws parents into contention and conflict, drawing the worst from them at a time when their children need their parents’ best.

It is long past the time for a universal shared parenting law so that our government can truly state that it is promoting the “best interests” of our children and not its lawyers. This goal is well supported by other famous actors who tried in vain to influence such reforms. The late Robin Williams made a graphic case against parental alienation in the blockbuster movie, Mrs. Doubtfire. Released nearly thirty years ago, if anything, the alienation is much worse today.

In 2008, during his divorce with Kim Basinger, Alec Baldwin published his book, A Promise to Ourselves, as part of his effort to modernize the California court system. But as quickly as he entered the fray, he abandoned the movement altogether no doubt because it was impairing his acting career or even his very existence given the suicide considerations revealed in that book. Kiefer Sutherland and Jason Patric were similarly motivated to change this system but they too exited the movement upon achieving their personal goals.

As a consequence we see an unprecedented impact upon our society. The time and resources needlessly expended in these courts have harmed our families, children, productivity, health, law enforcement and moral fiber as a nation. In my own divorce, originally uncontested, a 15-year protracted court battle has caused irreparable harm to all concerned. The retributions I endured for a conscientious stand against this system remain off the charts.

This silent epidemic is far too complicated for a website posting. Instead it is detailed in my recently published book, Whistleblower in Paris, available on all the major bookseller sites. It is a literary work years in the making based on a true story that features a civil rights attorney and model parent targeted for suppression and extinction by powerful beneficiaries. It is a story that would make John Grisham ecstatic.

As Parental Rights Erode, American Society is Paying the Price. Yet the Band Plays On.

By Dr. Leon Koziol

Parenting Rights Institute

Every day we see the dire consequences of a civilized society getting out of control due to a continuing erosion of parental rights. Such rights precede those cemented in the Magna Charta and American Constitution for a good reason. They’re not mentioned in those venerable documents because their framers properly treated our duty to rear our own children as a natural right originating from the beginning of humanity itself.

And we’ve been doing it for centuries upon centuries against odds much greater than we face today. Yet, apparently, we still don’t have it right according to a growing number of self-appointed experts. Who are these so-called experts, do they have any children of their own, can they cite parenting experience of a meaningful kind (not a substitute), and why are they obsessed with placing state and child authority over that of the real moms and dads?

It begs the ultimate question, is there a more profound reason for this obsession? Okay, there are certainly those out there who raise their children poorly. But is that any reason to generalize them to the vast majority who parent properly in an increasingly complex society? Is it all part of that New World Order we keep hearing about, Hillary Clinton circa 1990s and her long forgotten book, It Takes a Village (to raise our children)?

Today that “village” takes on a number of new faces that include communism, socialism, crime infested neighborhoods and fringe groups rioting for obscure causes. School districts constitute yet another “village” that is being targeted as children are programed to adopt evil ways like never before. Here we present such evil featured in a July 16, 2021 headline story in the upstate New York Observer Dispatch.

A 17-year old girl was murdered in unprecedented fashion when her lover set up a video of the incident after a concert they attended. It reproduced a graphic scene in his car raping and stabbing this girl to death and then posting that video on-line. Even the gruesome remains were included in his premeditated production. Although convicted and sentenced to life behind bars, the sicko left behind family victims to endure a murder conceived in hell itself.

As parents struggling to protect our children from such an unimagined evil and its tentacle-like expanse, how do we come to grips with this? You would think that the victim’s family suffered enough from it all, but their torture persisted when a local prosecutor shared those videos across state lines with national documentary organizations and even social media. According to the article, that family was compelled to bring a federal lawsuit against that prosecutor.

The 2019 murder trial is long concluded but the public inquiry is not. Questions abound such as the source of this conceived atrocity. Has the freedom to interact with bad elements in our schools and communities become a child’s right over the will of protective parents? And that brings us to the “trillion” dollar question: How do we protect our children at any age from this kind of heinous behavior? Well, here’s how the “experts” are answering us:

According to Maura Priest, a “candidate professor” at Arizona State University, “parents should lose their veto power over children going trans.” Parental supervision somehow became a veto power with deference to be given to children as young as six years of age. According to the relevant medical journal article first published on June 8, 2021, our government should defer to children’s wishes once it decides that they are “informed and competent.”

That defies the very definition of children. Why is anyone giving the time of day to this “candidate professor?” In another article in Buzzfeed published on July 10, 2021, staff writer Asia McLain writes that “People Are Revealing The Single Hardest Lesson For Parents To Learn About Raising Kids. And There’s So Much Truth Here.” Her subheading states: “You have to parent the kid you have, not the one you want.” She then goes on to enumerate her advice on how we should essentially comply with an inverted order of child rearing.

In prior posts here at http://www.leonkoziol.com, I warned of this New World Order and its agenda of institutionalizing parenthood much like education was over time. But maybe it was treated as fringe or futuristic. Well it’s too late for that conversation now because this scary trend is upon us. Our government is looking more and more like communism and tyranny every day. We’re just not taking this trend seriously enough, like it’s going to disappear all by itself.

I continue to trace much of this highly censored phenomenon to our highly lucrative divorce and family courts. This is where we are told that our government acting in the “best interests of our children” before they bankrupt us in a needless contest over that almighty and antiquated custody title. Meanwhile, this New World thinking has been breeding suicides, murders, and domestic violence for decades, yielding such freaks as the killer of that 17-year old girl.

This is why we can never let our guard down as parents, even those of us alienated by this ever twisted court system that values lawyer profits and federal incentive funds over the true interests of our children. To that end, I have completed a book manuscript which will be published soon and available on various national book sites. It’s titled Whistleblower in Paris to document my horrific ordeal as an aggrieved parent and civil rights attorney.

Unfortunately I learned that the publishing industry can be as corrupt as the family court industry. But with a newly signed publishing contract, I can now offer an advanced hard copy of my new release with a contribution of $30 on this site. Postage and handling costs are included. Your name and address will appear with your credit card payment and an autographed copy will follow. Electronic versions will not be available for another two months.

The concluding segment of this book documents the poetic justice achieved when perpetrators of my ordeal suffered their own misfortunes. The prosecutor above was one of them after he failed to indict my ex-secretary for crimes committed in my former law office in an outside scheme to target my license and discredit my stellar record. Two weeks prior to the headline news regarding the family’s federal court lawsuit, that prosecutor, Scott McNamara, announced that he would not be seeking re-election after twelve unchallenged years in office.

The Child Support Crisis: What you need to know about draconian enforcements

By Dr. Leon Koziol

Parenting Rights Institute

Just shut up and pay YOUR child support! It’s a familiar insult which presumes that only one parent has any such obligation and that both parents cannot be trusted to set up their own arrangements free of state supervision. Given the complex society of today, the better assumption is that the state is ill equipped to raise our children and that a nation founded upon a limited government will no longer tolerate its abuses of power.

The euphemistic term “child support” has been conveniently exploited to build a giant bureaucracy focused more on revenue generation and service fees than the “best interests” of our children. Just place the child on top of the state tank and you can crush the rights of the people, even convincing parents to “happily” surrender the ones applicable to their offspring. It’s a tactic used by Adolph Hitler to build one of the greatest war machines in history.

Widespread declines in moral, family and religious values can largely be traced to this surrender. The word combination “child support” has been effective in drowning out the truth about a corrupted process that invites self-serving jurists to tread increasingly upon our most basic rights. These include our fundamental liberty interest in childrearing, Troxel v Granville, 530 US 57 (2000) and guarantee of procedural due process, Turner v Rogers, 564 US 431 (2011).

An ominous dissent in the latter case by Justice Clarence Thomas should have all of us alarmed. He bucked the court’s majority by declaring that the due process safeguards required of a support contempt proceeding undermine the state’s interest in a more vigorous enforcement process. This represented a grave departure from reality when taking a deeper look at the draconian enforcement practices that have caused joblessness, homelessness and premature deaths among support debtors.

Such practices have not only “undermined” support capacities, but they have forever ended “child support” in countless cases. Three exemplary deaths over the past decade, Joe Longo, Thomas Ball and Walter Scott, are all that is needed to show the absurdities of the Thomas opinion. Taken together with other victims, it is clear that we have an epidemic underway, one that “shocks the conscience of a civilized society” in violation of substantive due process as well, Rochin v California, 342 US 165 (1953).

Government today is actually manufacturing bad parents through its “custody” and “support” mandates under Title IV-D of the Social Security Act. This is the federal funding law that rewards courts by the number and size of support orders they issue and satisfy. Apart from the inherent bias that this has created, the imbalance has yielded a crowd of silent or walking dead, victims of murder, suicides, false charges and domestic violence, others that await justice that never comes.

Police Investigator Joseph Longo was so traumatized after exiting support court that he used a common kitchen knife to commit a murder-suicide at the former marital home. It left four children without both parents and taxpayers with a $2 million lawsuit debt, Pearce v Longo, 766 F. Supp. 2d 367 (NDNY 2011). The court predators kept pounding him with protection orders, support intercepts and career damage without considering the breaking points of their targets.

You should’ve just shut up, Joe, and paid YOUR child support.

Then there’s Thomas Ball, victim of an overzealous child protection agency who sat down one day on the steps of a New Hampshire courthouse to protest family court abuse. But this was no sit-in, no “occupy court” mission. He poured gas over his head and burned himself alive. We cringe at the extreme pain he must have suffered before and during this holocaust. In the end, there was no national coverage, no court reforms, they merely washed his ashes into the sewer.

You should’ve just shut up, Tom, and paid YOUR child support.

Finally we bring you Walter Scott, a black father shot dead five times in the back. He was killed, unarmed, by a white cop while fleeing a child support warrant at a traffic stop. Unlike other BLM victims, this one was not involved in any criminal activity. It was a civil debt, and our government was now killing for money. This obvious fact is never mentioned in the ongoing George Floyd protests because “child support” is the holy grail for feminists and man-haters.

You should’ve just shut up, Walt, and paid YOUR child support.

Even in necessary cases involving absentee parents or public charges, there is little or no accountability for tax-free, support checks used for drugs, partners or vanity excesses. Most contemptuous are the cases where child support is exploited as a tactical weapon for a custody award that inevitably leads to severe parental alienation. Here the one dutifully paying “child support” is, in reality, paying the state to take his children away. Even then, sadistic alienators are not satisfied until their children are brainwashed to hate the other parent.

This author’s ordeal is one such case that features a high school teacher, Kelly Hawse-Koziol.

The easy way to avoid this “inconvenient truth” is by detracting from it, i.e. “Just shut up and pay YOUR child support.” Support judges say this without mouthing the words by trashing procedural protections and crafting evidentiary substitutes to expedite a desired outcome. Examples are too numerous but include such fictions as “imputed income” and a substandard level of proof. This star chamber process ignores the right of a “noncustodial” parent to finance a separate home for the same children. It also ignores the horrific collateral harm.

Nowhere is an accounting made of the working parental arrangements upended by this custody and support mandate found in the funding laws.

Such collateral harm does not discriminate. It includes a white mom who drove her children into the Hudson River rather than surrender to a custody and support order. A similar derangement caused another to heinously murder her two-year old girl resulting in a conviction and jail term that will never bring back the child (see Gabriella Boyd Foundation). A black mom in Philadelphia went further. In an overnight rage, she purchased a gun and killed both her children and their dad.

The child victims are particularly heart-wrenching. There’s Kyra Franchetti and Thomas Valva whose young lives were lost to mentally disturbed fathers. An Albany (NY) Times Union story on October 13, 2020 revealed that a child protection agency suppressed 725 child death reports over a decade. This is shocking but not really when considering Governor Andrew Cuomo’s suppression of nursing home deaths currently under investigation. Such tragedies omit the live victims torn apart by court proceedings needlessly protracted by greedy lawyers.

This author was subjected to a sixteen year battle over “child support” which induced the “custodial” mom to brainwash his precious daughters in relentless fashion. This went unheeded by the courts despite the lack of any abuse report or unfit finding and despite father-daughter experiences that would be the envy of most children. Over 40 trial level jurists were assigned to his family proceedings with many removed for misconduct, a national record by most accounts and the price to be paid by a judicial whistleblower.

This is not just a public policy issue or a lack of judicial accountability. It is a growing crisis that has caused more deaths than the coronavirus pandemic. It was the theme of our 3-day Parent March on Washington in 2019, a peaceful protest featuring a lobby initiative, expert speakers, a march down Pennsylvania Avenue under police escort and a concluding vigil for those lives lost to this unjust system. Its goal was to obtain congressional hearings and a Justice Department investigation. But it achieved nothing, only more evidence for BLM to justify violence. Peaceful reform is no match for the gold mine which this system has viciously protected.

You might also be interested in a DVD film entitled “Crisis” based on a true story. It features a triple storm of whistleblowers who take on the DEA, academia and the drug industry as common victims. They illuminate the kind of retaliation exposed here.

Putting a face on the parent alienator: meet Kelly Hawse-Koziol (Usherwood)

By Dr. Leon Koziol

Director, Parenting Rights Institute

Former Civil Rights Trial Attorney

Among my popular publications are those that shed light on this human rights tragedy known as parental alienation. It is the centerpiece of a nationwide epidemic promoted by greed, lawyer profits and billions of dollars in federal funds under Title IV-D of the Social Security Act. It is a gold mine for service providers, prescription drug companies and conflict predators of astounding variety, an underworld of corruption made possible by a rarely tested declaration that our domestic relations courts are acting in the so-called “best interests” of our children.

This epidemic is escalating by the day because government is failing us in its duty to safeguard our most cherished right of parenting, one that the Supreme Court has repeatedly declared to be the “oldest liberty interest protected by the Constitution,” Troxel v Granville, 530 US 57 (2000). It is failing us most horrifically by refusing to correct parental alienation which has become so silently widespread across America. Instead, more regard is given to illegals, criminals and child traffickers at our borders.

Consequently we must take a closer look at these domestic tribunals. They all seem legitimate with the decorum, perfunctory overtures, and lawyers cloaked in black robes pressing us to believe that our precious offspring are in good hands. As an alienation victim, I tested that blind trust resulting in one of my custody judges being permanently banned from the bench for sexual abuse of his handicapped, five year old niece, In re Bryan Hedges, 20 NY3d 677 (2013). Only last year another of my custody judges resigned for sexual harassment of his female clerks (Michael Hanuszczak).

Indeed, over a twelve year period of retaliation for the conscientious stand I took against my profession, more than 40 trial level jurists were removed or disqualified from my family litigation, a national record by most accounts. I did not ask for this record or so many parenting substitutes since an uncontested divorce was upended by court predators. Since 2004, they orchestrated a blood bath reminiscent of the Roman Coliseum.

After all, have you ever wondered why loving parents are forced to joust over a “custody” award or “visitation” schedule? Are not these terms more appropriate for prisons and funerals? And haven’t such archaic terms “outlived their usefulness” as a veteran judge long ago declared in the case of Webster v Ryan, 729 NYS2d 315 (Fam. Ct. Albany 2001) at fn. 1?

I did not ask for the years of daily persecution that ultimately led to my hospitalization four months ago. I did not ask for this simply to spend more time with my daughters. I did not ask for the alarming information disclosed to me anonymously and otherwise concerning my ex-wife bent on replacing me time and again with her preferred dads.

This hideous alienator, Kelly Hawse-Koziol, brings a face to this epidemic. Indeed she could become its poster parent, exemplifying the absurdity of taking a support and custody battle to an illogical extreme. After all, what did she gain by destroying the career of her children’s dad? She got the attention she craved, pleased the ones anxious to even the score for a lost case, but how did any of it benefit the girls who could have been so much better off today.

In my case, I was never given an out, constantly forced on the defensive to prove myself as the fit parent I always was. For example, through a series of family offense petitions, all thrown out for lack of evidence, and a malicious campaign for failing to give up my parenting rights, Hawse-Koziol (soon to be Hawse-Usherwood) brainwashed my girls into hating their biological father who made their existence possible.

I raised them without incident for the first ten years of their lives, sacrificed immensely to stay with them, provided over a quarter million dollars for their support, and showed them a wonderful time which would be the envy of most children. Yet today they seem content to reward me with silence, avoiding contact even while I was hospitalized during the Christmas holidays. I cannot imagine doing this to my own parents or to my ex if the shoe was on the other foot. It is a modern day evil which our courts are manufacturing daily.

Such is the face of severe parent alienation, and it warrants a federal investigation of human rights violations in addition to the rampant abuses of federal funds. It also warrants criminal prosecutions and jail time for contempt to balance the consequences that have long been applied to child support debtors. I mean, isn’t a parent-child relationship far more deserving of legal protection than money transfers that are so often abused for non-child related activity? Parental alienation also warrants a new form of lawsuit that compensates victims.

Those who join with the alienator should also be held accountable. Again, I did not ask for the reports from concerned observers that my ex-wife was at it again by soliciting a guy named Lou Usherwood to act as the father of my children. Indeed during a high school football game in 2019, her illicit agenda was confirmed when, accompanied by this latest substitute, she threatened me by text for talking to my cheerleader daughter without a proper court order.

This is “insanity on steroids” and it is becoming commonplace. But in my case it is laced with retaliation for the exercise of speech outside the courtroom and constitutional right of parenting free from excessive interference. I have never even been charged with child abuse or found guilty of unfit parenting. Yet convicted felons in prison get better “visitation” orders.

After exchanges with the ex designed to move on from this disaster last year, I took down all negative posts involving her. However, the alienator showed true colors again by continuing with her sick agenda. She is doing this despite all the precious time and advice lost between “daddy and his little girls” that can never be restored. It is an evil I have never seen before, even among some of the worst criminal defendants I have come across. Yet I continue to have no legal recourse against those who made her agenda possible due to judicial immunity.

In my 2017 book, Satan’s Docket, I document how a corrupt family court made all this possible. It is not only uniquely educational but it reveals an epic ordeal deserving of a long overdue documentary.

Government Accountability is a Fraud: Why should the people honor laws that lawmakers flaunt?

By Dr. Leon Koziol

Parenting Rights Institute

Is there any shame these days to the widespread misconduct of public officials? Is there any accountability for those who flaunt the law with impunity? We’re not talking about isolated indiscretions, but serious misconduct undetected for years, even decades. Former New York Governor Eliot Spitzer, Congressman Anthony Weiner, Wall Street regulator Bernie Madoff, Attorney General Eric Schneiderman and ex-California Congressman Duncan Hunter constitute a small list of disgraced officials who brazenly advanced themselves at public expense, a joint hypocrisy of epic proportion.

And now, topping this list, we find Andrew Cuomo engaged in a flurry of news releases to deflect from his growing scandals. From a sudden legalization of recreational marijuana to the relaxation of coronavirus restrictions, the current governor of New York is relying on an electorate that quickly forgets. This long abused practice flies in the face of government misconduct that should be held accountable to avert the lawlessness it incites elsewhere. The public message here is that if you bend the rules, by the time anyone catches up with it, a lavish life has already been fulfilled.

Yes, crime pays, and the message continues to be that the people served are idiots for honoring laws that apply differently to separated classes. Those in power abuse their authority to achieve a higher standard while those who make it all possible are remanded to a life of poverty, incarceration, suicide and meager employment. To maintain the upper class, various programs are announced to make it appear that these lawless politicians truly care about the rest of us struggling to make sense of our reality as a two class society. Any middle existence is an illusion of escalating proportion particularly with the impacts of the current pandemic.

On Constitution Day, 2013, I testified at Governor Andrew Cuomo’s Moreland Commission on Public Corruption, to warn of our current realities. This was yet another window dressing entity designed to fool the public into believing that there will be accountability for a “culture of corruption in Albany.” But the same governor who created this commission with great fanfare acted just as quickly to dissolve it when growing testimony implicated officials close to Cuomo himself. Not to be duped, one of those testimonials came from a federal prosecutor who seized commission files resulting in the convictions of both leaders of the state legislature and a top Cuomo aid.

For my part, as a qualified whistleblower in our third branch of government, I exposed a family court epidemic that was causing vast separations between parents and their children. How ironic and hypocritical it is today that much more attention is being given to criminals and illegals at our southern border. Is this equal justice for our tax paying citizenry or the promotion of corporate profits dependent on cheap labor, drug addictions and false advertising?

In my reports to Congress and Justice Department I explained how Title IV-D funding was creating a biased judiciary rewarded by the size and number of child support orders doled out in our nation’s domestic relations courts. Put another way, federal funding was being incentivized by the number of “custodial parents” needlessly manufactured to incite lucrative conflict in the so-called “best interests” of our children.

In support of a federal investigation, I even cited proof in my own case featuring over 40 trial level jurists removed over a twelve year period in a maliciously protracted divorce that caused irreversible parental alienation. This was anything but a process for advancing the best interests of my two precious daughters. And in the end, like most whistleblowers, I suffered severe retaliation to suppress judicial accountability. Attacked as the messenger of overdue reforms, I was targeted by these same jurists and their ethics agents. By destroying my credibility, the gold mine of service fees and federal money was further preserved.

That targeting was successful largely because the public is further duped to believe that judges are “beyond reproach” as members of that arbitrarily created elite class. Such argument was used by lawyers to attack my motions for removal of biased judges from my support and custody cases in Syracuse, New York. That was before some of them were removed from the family court bench for misconduct that was made public. They include Judge Bryan Hedges permanently banned from judicial office by New York’s high court for sexual misconduct on his handicapped, five year old niece and more recently, Judge Michael Hanuszczak, exposed for sexual harassment of female court clerks.

The growing number of judicial scandals should have all of us very concerned because this is where we expect justice to be dispensed. Examples cited in my reports include Brooklyn Judge Gerald Garson sent to federal prison after being convicted of seeking a bribe in favor of a father in a custody case, and Albany Judge Thomas Spargo for seeking a bribe in favor of a mother in a divorce case against a father-attorney.

Such judicial misconduct is nationwide in scope as demonstrated by the “Kids for Cash” scandal which landed two Pennsylvania judges in prison, and Michigan Judge Wade McCree who impregnated a mother while presiding over her child support case. The victimized father was unable to secure justice or compensation in federal court due to judicial immunity, sending the message that adultery in chambers is a protected judicial act.

Unfortunately my expert reports, lobbying excursions, and peacefully led marches in Washington yielded no reforms. Instead I was rewarded with human rights violations, indefinite suspension of licensing “privileges,” and near death experiences. Such are the consequences for whistleblowers in countries led by ruthless dictators, not one that professes democracy and social Justice. Yet those remain the consequences here in America for a civil rights attorney whose greatest crime was to seek more parenting time with his children and to expose corruption by self-jurists and politicians. My ordeal is now a looming documentary published in a recent book, Satan’s Docket.

This is not a “lone wolf” project but a representative undertaking for a disjointed mass of aggrieved parents from across the country hoping to achieve resurrection from their suffering at the hands of evil beings. It is not the message I was hoping to present on Easter Sunday 2021, but we can either join to achieve a better society or we can continue to surrender to one that is becoming more godless by the day.
