RE:            FEDERAL  COURT  CIVIL  RIGHTS  LAWSUIT  FILED  AGAINST NYS  CHIEF  JUSTICE , STATE  COURT  SYSTEM  AND  OTHERS CHALLENGING  PARENTING  LAWS  AND  LIBERTY  DEPRIVATIONS

FOR  IMMEDIATE  RELEASE

In what may be described as the most sweeping challenge to date upon our nation’s draconian child control laws surrounding Title IV-D of the Social Security Act, New York Civil Rights Advocate Leon R. Koziol, J.D. has filed a comprehensive test case in United States District Court in Albany, New York. Named in the action are judicial and law enforcement officials, including New York’s Chief Justice and Unified Court System. The lawsuit, served upon select parties this week, takes aim at “custody” and “child support” laws which alienate children from their parents as part of a government money generating scheme. A 39 page, 24 count civil complaint sets forth the manner in which lawyers and forensic agents feed off of manufactured controversies in domestic relations courts to harm parent-child relations and the financial stability of mainstream households. According to Koziol, it is a process which is harming the productivity of an entire nation.

Until his public stance against the legal profession in recent years, Mr. Koziol enjoyed an unblemished 23 year career as a constitutional rights attorney. His accomplishments include six figure jury verdicts on behalf of race, gender and free speech victims. In 2004, he secured a final judgment in New York Supreme Court declaring unconstitutional the operation of the largest casino in that state. He has appeared on the CBS Program “60 Minutes”, New York Times and CNN, among other national mediums. The current action provides a startling look at the manner in which government actors are suppressing free speech, due process and the People’s liberty interests in childrearing. Mr. Koziol is seeking similar victims of courtroom abuses to join this action and transform it to class action status. Support is needed behind his sacrificial cause on behalf of “parents similarly situated”. As the holiday season approaches, Mr. Koziol hopes to target family preservation issues and the scheduling of a national parenting rights convention.

Communism’s 45 goals to destroy the United States

“My child, you must not have fear at speaking the truth. It is for the salvation of souls and the recovery of your country. America the beautiful must not fall to communism, My child. America the beautiful shall not be sold into slavery.  Cast out the money changers in your government! What manner of government is there that condones sin?  Abomination upon abomination–giving monies for the murder of children, giving monies for the murder of the elderly!  Your government, My child, has been infiltrated by men of sin.” – Our Lady of the Roses, September 13, 1975

On Jan. 10, 1963, Congressman Albert S. Herlong Jr. of Florida read a list of 45 Communist goals into the Congressional Record. The list was derived from researcher Cleon Skousen’s book “The Naked Communist.” These principles are well worth revisiting today in order to gain insights into the thinking and strategies of much of our so-called liberal elite:

1. U.S. acceptance of coexistence as the only alternative to atomic war.

2. U.S. willingness to capitulate in preference to engaging in atomic war.

3. Develop the illusion that total disarmament [by] the United States would be a demonstration of moral strength.

4. Permit free trade between all nations regardless of Communist affiliation and regardless of whether or not items could be used for war.

5. Extension of long-term loans to Russia and Soviet satellites.

6. Provide American aid to all nations regardless of Communist domination.

7. Grant recognition of Red China. Admission of Red China to the U.N.

8. Set up East and West Germany as separate states in spite of Khrushchev’s promise in 1955 to settle the German question by free elections under supervision of the U.N.

9. Prolong the conferences to ban atomic tests because the United States has agreed to suspend tests as long as negotiations are in progress.

10. Allow all Soviet satellites individual representation in the U.N.

11. Promote the U.N. as the only hope for mankind. If its charter is rewritten, demand that it be set up as a one-world government with its own independent armed forces.

12. Resist any attempt to outlaw the Communist Party.

13. Do away with all loyalty oaths.

14. Continue giving Russia access to the U.S. Patent Office.

15. Capture one or both of the political parties in the United States.

16. Use technical decisions of the courts to weaken basic American institutions by claiming their activities violate civil rights.

17. Get control of the schools. Use them as transmission belts for socialism and current Communist propaganda. Soften the curriculum. Get control of teachers’ associations. Put the party line in textbooks.

18. Gain control of all student newspapers.

19. Use student riots to foment public protests against programs or organizations which are under Communist attack.

20. Infiltrate the press. Get control of book-review assignments, editorial writing, policy making positions.

21. Gain control of key positions in radio, TV, and motion pictures.

22. Continue discrediting American culture by degrading all forms of artistic expression. An American Communist cell was told to “eliminate all good sculpture from parks and buildings, substitute shapeless, awkward and meaningless forms.”

23. Control art critics and directors of art museums. “Our plan is to promote ugliness, repulsive, meaningless art.”

24. Eliminate all laws governing obscenity by calling them “censorship” and a violation of free speech and free press.

25. Break down cultural standards of morality by promoting pornography and obscenity in books, magazines, motion pictures, radio, and TV.

26. Present homosexuality, degeneracy and promiscuity as “normal, natural, healthy.”

27. Infiltrate the churches and replace revealed religion with “social” religion. Discredit the Bible and emphasize the need for intellectual maturity which does not need a “religious crutch.”

28. Eliminate prayer or any phase of religious expression in the schools on the ground that it violates the principle of “separation of church and state.”

29. Discredit the American Constitution by calling it inadequate, old-fashioned, out of step with modern needs, a hindrance to cooperation between nations on a worldwide basis.

30. Discredit the American Founding Fathers. Present them as selfish aristocrats who had no concern for the “common man.

31. Belittle all forms of American culture and discourage the teaching of American history on the ground that it was only a minor part of the “big picture.” Give more emphasis to Russian history since the Communists took over.

32. Support any socialist movement to give centralized control over any part of the culture–education, social agencies, welfare programs, mental health clinics, etc.

33. Eliminate all laws or procedures which interfere with the operation of the Communist apparatus.

34. Eliminate the House Committee on Un-American Activities.

35. Discredit and eventually dismantle the FBI.

36. Infiltrate and gain control of more unions.

37. Infiltrate and gain control of big business.

38. Transfer some of the powers of arrest from the police to social agencies. Treat all behavioral problems as psychiatric disorders which no one but psychiatrists can understand [or treat].

39. Dominate the psychiatric profession and use mental health laws as a means of gaining coercive control over those who oppose Communist goals.

40. Discredit the family as an institution. Encourage promiscuity and easy divorce.

41. Emphasize the need to raise children away from the negative influence of parents. Attribute prejudices, mental blocks and retarding of children to suppressive influence of parents.

42. Create the impression that violence and insurrection are legitimate aspects of the American tradition; that students and special-interest groups should rise up and use [“]united force[“] to solve economic, political or social problems.

43. Overthrow all colonial governments before native populations are ready for self-government.

44. Internationalize the Panama Canal.

45. Repeal the Connally reservation so the United States cannot prevent the World Court from seizing jurisdiction [over domestic problems. Give the World Court jurisdiction] over nations and individuals alike.

The Parental Rights Amendment: Frequently Asked Questions

The following information is being provided courtesy of our good friends at parentalrights.org:

1. Why do we need the Parental Rights Amendment?

Parental rights in America are at increased risk from both the federal courts and
international law. Domestically, the Supreme Court’s decision in Troxel v.
Granville (2000) removed from parental rights the high legal protection
accorded to all other fundamental rights, leaving judges to weigh parental rights
against the interests of the child, the State, and even third parties on a case-by case
basis. Meanwhile, ratification of the UN’s Convention on the Rights of the
Child (CRC), which would overrule State-level family law and constitutionally
implied parental rights, is a stated goal of the current administration.
One federal court in New York has already twice held that the treaty is even
binding without ratification, under the theory of “Customary International Law.”
The Amendment will correct both of these threats.

2. What is so bad about the UN’s Convention on the Rights of the Child?

Despite the innocuous title, the CRC, if ratified, would become binding on judges
in all 50 States, while an unelected 18-member panel of internationalists has
authority to interpret what it means in practical application. In essence, the
U.S. would be obligated to perform whatever this panel tells us we have agreed
to perform under the treaty. In addition, all family law (95% of which is
currently State law) would become a U.S. treaty obligation, and thus a matter of
federal jurisdiction and legislation, the largest power shift from the State to the
federal level in U.S. history. Additionally, the convention makes the
government, and not the parents, the first and final caretakers for America’s
children. Parents are relegated to the role of government agents in fulfilling our
obligations under the CRC.

3. Won’t a Parental Rights Amendment protect child abusers?

The proposed Parental Rights Amendment clearly states that parental rights are
fundamental rights, but “fundamental” rights are not “absolute” rights.
The government can restrict a fundamental right, but only if it proves that it has
a compelling reason to do so. Freedom of the press, for instance, does not
permit slander or libel. Section Two of the Amendment expressly preserves the
current interest (obligation) of the government to protect children from child
abuse and neglect, which they do by prosecuting those crimes and by
interceding in cases of imminent harm. The Amendment is designed to protect
fit parents from unwarranted government intrusion without allowing unfit
parents to do whatever they want to their children.

Update: UN Convention on the Rights of the Child

Today at LeonKoziol.Com we received notice from our good friends at ParentalRights.Org regarding SR 519 which stated the following:

This resolution calls on the President NOT to send the UN Convention on the Rights of the Child to the Senate for advice and consent. It’s intended for Senate offices, and explains exactly why it is important to cosponsor SR 519. There are currently 22 cosponsors. The House companion bill is H.Res.1376, although our campaign for cosponsors is only necessary on the Senate side.

3. Contact your Representative to support our resolutions. The Parental Rights Amendment and the anti-CRC bill are listed on our website. Non-supportive Representatives are listed on our website, with links to their contact information.

Why Cosponsor S.R. 519?

Cosponsoring Senate Resolution 519 is the only effective means to register opposition to the UN Convention on the Rights of the Child.

1. The UN Convention on the Rights of the Child (CRC) must not be ratified. The CRC undermines traditional parental rights and obligates us to implement its provisions, effectively transferring jurisdiction governing family law matters from the states to federal government. It will also lead to courts deciding domestic law by U.N guidelines rather than by the intent of elected American lawmakers. The CRC runs counter to our American heritage and freedoms. S.R. 519 sends a message that the Senate lacks the requisite votes to ratify the CRC. The Convention
requires the consent of 67 Senators; to reject it takes only 34. Once 34 sign SR 519, the Senate cannot grant its consent to the CRC — as long as 34 senators remain true to their commitment to protect American families and U.S. sovereignty.

2. The current leadership in Washington has demonstrated a willingness to go to great lengths to get what it wants, the will of the American people notwithstanding. From buy-outs to socialized health care, the current administration and legislative leadership have shown that they will go to extraordinary measures to get what they want when they want it. And President Obama, Ambassador Susan Rice, Senator Barbara Boxer, and Secretary of State Hillary Clinton have all made it clear that they want to see us ratify the CRC. We must be sure the President knows the Senate will not provide consent. And that begins with 34 cosponsors to S.R. 519.

3. Proponents of the treaty are on the move, and claim to be near victory. The Campaign for U.S. Ratification of the Convention on the Rights of the Child claim they have identified 60 senators in support of ratification, and 13 who are undecided. By their numbers, ratification is a real possibility now. They also indicate that they have had a recent White House meeting to discuss ratification. These factors further demonstrate the likelihood that an attempt at ratification will be made in the very near future.

4. The American people deserve a clear message from their leaders. Any Senator who opposes ratification of the CRC yet refuses to cosponsor S.R. 519 raises the question of whether that senator may be among the 13 undecided lawmakers whom proponents of the treaty
will be looking to court. Signing S.R. 519 allows a Senator to declare overt opposition to the treaty. At the same time, the Senator is able to take a stand that protects the rights of parents and the self-determination of the American people, a position supported by the overwhelming majority of Americans.

5. It’s clean and easy. The wording will not be changed in committee. Supporting senators won’t have to defend the measure in floor debate. None of these usual actions will be necessary. Thirty-four names. That’s all. A Senator need take no more action than to contact the office of Senator Jim DeMint from South Carolina and ask to be added as a cosponsor. It is that easy.
