Seriously Claudia? Did we read that correctly in the Syracuse Post Standard? You’ve come a long way since 2010 when you sat at my dining room table as a tabloid reporter claiming to be concerned about parental equality. That’s when I took my sacrificial stand against child support abuse and father discrimination.
Now you claim to be concerned about our veterans but have done nothing to even look into the “many” veteran suicides, father alienation and seizure of parental authority which has led to fatherless freaks of both major parties who commit these mass murders. That’s because you are a divorcee who once benefited from the Title IV-D entitlement program known as the Child Support Standards Act which is costing federal taxpayers billions of dollars.
Claudia has yet to respond to my reports of Title IV-D abuses and my petition to New York’s Legislature when she served as my Assemblywoman. But her politicizing of a horrific event was horrific enough, and I cannot allow such generalizations to go unanswered. I remain one of her constituents, a Democrat who served the largest city in her district at one time as an elected Democrat councilman and corporation counsel.
Her news quote came while I was preoccupied in Manhattan last week assisting victims of corrupt courts, an issue she should familiarize herself with considering how she has relied on her father’s reputation to be elected to public office after numerous failed efforts prior to her visit at my home. As a state judge, John Tenney was no honorable man as I can prove after winning my first two appeals against him right out of law school.
The Syracuse Post Standard newspaper arrived at my New Hartford home with a February 22, 2018 article (page A16) which informed Claudia Tenny’s 22nd District constituents that mass murderers are primarily Democrats. For whatever bizarre reason, she made those remarks on Talk 1300 Radio in my now neighboring city of Utica, New York.
When called to task by a Syracuse reporter about her non-existent proof to support such a brazen conclusion, she simply responded with a prepared statement which dodged the proof issue altogether saying: “I will continue to stand up for law abiding citizens who are smeared by anti-gun liberal elitists.”
Say what? I am a lifelong Democrat who despises liberal views but I don’t label my political party adversaries, be they Liberal or Republican (as Claudia is), mass murderers. She claims to be a Conservative, but I was endorsed as a Democrat by the Conservative Party in my last run for major public office. So what’s up with this Democrat generalization Claudia?
We need to take a closer look at this woman as a member of Congress because she may well be a hater of numerous ethnic groups not just entire political parties. When her former colleague in the New York Assembly, Anthony Brindisi, announced his run against Claudia last summer, she replied with generalizations about his dad, Louis Brindisi, a reputed mob lawyer (read all about it in my recent book, Satan’s Docket). Her scheme to label the son was answered by Italian-American groups outraged by her stereotypes.
It makes you wonder what Claudia thinks about German-Americans, Native-Americans, Arab-Americans and African-Americans, among others, which comprise the majority of her constituents. I was present at a Rome Polish Home event when Claudia was campaigning for Congress in a failed primary against then incumbent Richard Hanna. What sort of undisclosed stereotypes lurked in her mind among those “type” of people?
As my 6,000 plus followers have been informed time and again, I supported Donald Trump against Hillary Clinton. I did so to the point of filing a motion to disqualify Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg from my then pending case before the Supreme Court due to her political attacks from chambers against Donald Trump, then a private citizen not yet endorsed by the Republican Party for president.
Over the years, I was there supporting candidates, federal, state and local, regardless of party affiliation for principled reasons, not the almighty buck. Meanwhile elitists like Claudia were hiding on the belief such candidates would lose. It’s called courage, the kind demonstrated by great Democrats such as John Kennedy, Martin Luther King and Edmund Muskie.
For Claudia’s benefit next time she stumps for votes at the Polish Clubs of her district, Edmund Muskie was a Polish-American, United States Senator and candidate for Vice President with Hubert Humphrey who lost to one of the most corrupt politicians in American history, Richard Nixon, a Republican. As a Republican herself, does that mean we should label Claudia a corrupt politician?
As concerned parents we must get involved in politics and the election process before our rights are forever lost to the state. We see the”evidence” of it everywhere, a veritable silent and suppressed epidemic at the root of most other societal problems. As an elitist herself, Claudia just doesn’t get it on her high horse today. It’s time to knock her off. Won’t you join me. Call anytime at (315) 796-4000.
Once again you just can’t make this stuff up at Leon Koziol.com. Yes you read that headline correctly. After spending three full years abusing judicial office in retaliation for Leon’s public exposure of Judge King’s incompetence, the abuser simply walked away from the mess he made. That brings the total trial level judges on Leon’s case to 38 after a support magistrate in Syracuse stepped down only days earlier.
Both the New York and United States Supreme Court cases originated as Koziol v King. The title happened to be appropriate for historical reasons since the equity powers abused in family court derived from the feudal power of the King of England carried over to the states through common law. But with the King gone from one case, the new title will have to be Koziol v ? Yes it’s gotten that crazy.
None of this means that the rally scheduled for June 22nd was in vain. But with public arguments once again directed underground, there was no event to attend and rally around. Although Leon managed to spend Fathers Day with his girls for the first time in three years (deprived only during King’s tenure), the father replacement agenda continues.
The Parenting Rights Institute (PRI) has released a cutting edge report which identifies a condition known as Custody Court Dysfunction. Based on years of legal research, more than two decades as a practicing attorney and interviews with family litigants, it was authored by Dr. Leon R. Koziol, founder and director of PRI. Among its alarming conclusions, military parents and public safety officers remain primary victims of this condition:
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 the life of one such victim from attempted suicide at a parenting convention we sponsored in 2011, but the unsuccessful instances are more telling, see i.e. Purple Heart’s Final Beat, Second Class Citizen.Org (2009).
Father discrimination may be the convenient scapegoat for politicians seeking to advance themselves, but as President Calvin Coolidge is quoted: “A country which forgets its defenders will itself be forgotten.” This message resonates as well with our domestic defenders. Virtually all responders on 9-11 were men entitled to equal treatment under the law. Yet an unpublicized number of fathers became eternally separated from their children and families without any changes to these laws as construed and enforced by our courts.
In another excerpt, the report describes not only how public safety officers are victimized in custody determinations based on their line of duty but how those duties are compromised and subjected to increased risks:
A natural outcome of this history is lawlessness. Although examples abound throughout the country, their causes are highly suppressed in police and media reports. In my own small home town, a police investigator committed a murder-suicide upon his ex-spouse after leaving support court which had him reportedly living on $28 per week after all the deductions and asset executions.
Draconian enforcement practices lead to seizures of various licenses ultimately producing homeless victims. Facing such prospects, this law man used a common kitchen knife to complete his crime, voiding any deterrent effect of the 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).
Kindly help us secure reform by supporting our work here at Parenting Rights Institute. We rely on donations to make such work possible. 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. We also prepare book manuscripts for those wishing to publish their court ordeals.
Recently we’ve posted a feature regarding the court ratified censorship of civil rights advocate, Dr. Leon Koziol, after exposing vast corruption in our nation’s divorce and family courts. As part of a broader network of parental advocates seeking overdue reforms and shared parenting, we need your personal and financial support to continue. Please share this post and promote our cause. Leon can be reached directly at (315) 796-4000.
Here is an excerpt from a brief that Leon filed recently with a federal appeals court in Manhattan. It helps explain why our children are being alienated and influenced to respect lawyers, strangers, social workers,even street thugs more than their own moms and dads, why violent crime, drug abuse, teen pregnancies and productivity declines can be traced to the seizures of traditional parental authority in these courts:
“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).
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. These support judges engage in highly abused fictions such as “imputed income” to raise obligations beyond realistic capacities.
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.”
And here is a re-production of our feature post this past week in case you missed it.
Okay so we’re not Breitbart or Infowars, we’re just an expanding blog site known as Leon Koziol.com dedicated to parental rights. That puts us with mainstream social media. As Chief Justice John Roberts declared in Snyder v Phelps, speech and press must be “robust” in any self-governing nation.
But we weren’t picketing against gay military as they were in that case. We were promoting all military who return from foreign wars only to experience more oppression in divorce and family courts. That made our third branch of government the subject of our public criticisms.
Today more than ever, we are victims of a powerful bureaucracy seeking to control every facet of our liberties. Families are the last bastion. Accordingly the people rely on secondary media for information and protection. It may be our final frontier before the machines take over.
When major media is censored, they resort to our courts for protection as they should. These forums were created by the people to be the primary guardians of our constitutional rights. But what if the courts are the ones doing the censoring? Where do those victims go for protection?
Welcome to Leon Koziol.com, the most court-censored blog site in America. It started innocently enough, a loving dad and attorney seeking to spend more time with his daughters. He went against his profession for turning our children into a trillion dollar industry.
The Times, USA Today, Chicago Tribune, Fox News, NBC, ABC, CBS and CNN are some of the major media seeking relief in our courts whenever they are censored. Their publishers, editors and reporters are never seized of their children, livelihoods and homes as a punishment.
Secondary media are not so fortunate. They lack real influence. But what we do have is an army of free service providers so the big guys can have something worth reporting. Here, because the courts were targeted, we became the most censored news site in America. Now for some proof:
• On May 22, 2013 at a closed hearing, ethics lawyers for the Committee on Professional Standards declared to a court panel that they would oppose reinstatement of Leon’s law license as long as he continued his public criticisms of judges. None was specified or prosecuted while “anonymous” complaints on other subjects were;
• On January 9, 2008, Leon argued his first appeal challenging a lucrative system of custody classifications which forced parents to fight over their offspring. It was before a court which also appointed ethics committees. One member was his ex-spouse’s divorce lawyer. On the same day, an ethics prosecution was opened for the very first time against Leon after more than two decades of unblemished practice;
• On October 8, 2008, a divorce judge ruled that Leon’s support obligations under that challenged custody law were proper under Title IV-D (Child Support Standards Act). That meant that the judges and lawyers who disrupted the parents’ 2006 agreements did so for no good reason other than lucrative parental conflict. A violation was nonetheless filed to cause another basis for suspending Leon’s law license. Those details are also omitted here due to the gag order.
This is only a small sampling of Leon’s ordeal and punishments for protecting fellow parents (and others who cannot be mentioned here due to the gag order). None of it has ever been disproved or even denied, and this is not the first time Leon sacrificed himself for the people and their rights under the First Amendment.
As chief (corporation) counsel for an upstate New York city, he gave up his post and successfully sued a mayor in federal court for a gag order on public employees. You can look it up at Koziol v Hanna, 107 F. Supp.2d 170 (NDNY 2000)(supported by federal appeals court in Manhattan). On October 9, 2015, the same federal court issued an anti-filing order against Leon.
We continue to fight this battle on principle and for those who cannot be mentioned here. Leon is also fighting for parents, families and children everywhere. But he has been deprived his livelihood for more than six years while a local lawyer convicted of tax fraud on $2 million in client income was never denied his law license even while serving time in prison. We therefore ask you to support us with a donation and anything else you can do.
Concerned Dads to Join Parental Rights Rally at Super Bowl
By Dr. Leon R. Koziol
Do fathers matter anymore? Should we be paying “child support” so that our children can be taken from us, alienated from their true dads to feed a trillion dollar industry, and made to believe that fathers are inherently inferior in divorce or family court?
Why are fathers still 83% of support obligors according to the U.S. Census Bureau with mothers winning roughly 90% of custody conflicts? Why are male parents being condemned to debtor prisons based on a revenue generating law while mothers who commit perjury are excused time and again with no similar jail sentence?
In New York, a state appeals court in Rochester entertained a lawsuit to free chimpanzees from their caged conditions, yet human fathers are receiving no similar protection. Indeed the court ruled that the petitioners in Nonhuman Rights Project v Boniello should have filed a habeas corpus action (instead of mandamus) which by legal definition is limited to incarcerated persons and children in custody of the state.
Fathers such as Michael Brancaccio served a maximum (caged) term for a support debt. It also landed him on life support, medically traced to the stress caused by his inability to reconcile that confinement with violent felons serving less time. Walter Scott, an unarmed father, was shot dead in the back fleeing a support warrant last year in South Carolina. One of every eight inmates in that state’s prisons are debtor fathers.
When do good fathers finally stand up for themselves and declare “enough is enough?” When will they finally leave the bowling alleys and basketball stands to press the overdue message that we matter too? Gay marriage has achieved far greater success while veterans and law enforcement continue to register high suicide rates due to family court abuse, see i.e. Pearce v Longo, 766 F.Supp.2d 367 (murder-suicide by police investigator leaving support court) and Purple Heart’s Final Beat, Second Class Citizen.org (proud Iraq war veteran taking his own life rather than face felony support warrant and prisoner status).
Throughout pro football world, coaches and players display pink ribbons and attire to promote a cure for breast cancer, and of course we applaud them for it. But prostate cancer will claim many of these men before their own career rewards are achieved. Where are the blue ribbons? Fathers’ and men’s rights have been remanded to the cellar of public attention because of a liberal propaganda machine which put it there.
The sexist slur “dead beat dad” is still being used by Arizona Governor Doug Ducy in his 2016 State of the State address, a state which hosted the NCAA football finals. Such bigotry persists because our third branch of government promotes it in halls of justice where we would expect the opposite. Family courts have been turned into capitalist courts with judges abandoning their neutral roles to raise revenues and gain favor from court appointed “evaluators” who feed off of discrimination and lawyer instigated controversy.
It is a highly concealed government enterprise which has reached epidemic proportions. Father discrimination, oppression and marginalization should be the number one issue in the presidential race because of its impacts on all others. Yet we see it nowhere on the policy agenda of any candidate. How much longer will the male half of our parenting population remain idle to these growing injustices? How much longer will the victims hide behind the skirts of women commanding the national agenda?
Fortunately there are committed groups of parents in California which recognize this epidemic and are prepared to act. They have selected the greatest sports event to proclaim a basic message: We’ve had enough of court corruption! But the organizers have also emphasized that all parent-child relationships will be the generic diluted theme. While I support that as much as I do a cure for breast cancer, it is unlikely to captivate the media and masses at a Super Bowl. I will reiterate that “Fathers Matter.” They remain the principal victims, and justice will matter when equality is truly achieved in all contexts.
If women’s equality stops at the doorsteps of family court, then the entire movement was a hoax, a farce and hypocrisy of monumental proportion. My successful lawsuits over 25 years for women discriminated and harassed in the workplace were in vain, this coming from a civil rights advocate who represented the former president of the National Organization of Women (NOW). We need to send a recognizable message at the Super Bowl where exemplary fathers such as Peyton Manning are the revenue generators.
Organizers of this rally are focused on achieving justice for all parents. However fathers remain the prevailing injustice which harms their own mothers, daughters, sisters, women partners and family members. We need your help and participation. I have been communicating with rally organizers Ralph Walker and Shiv Paletti. They have a site, http://www.YourParentalRights.com for those interested in joining this rally or you can just locate them outside the stadium at Santa Clara (near San Francisco where I have been assisting the effort). Contact me at email@example.com or personally at (315) 796-4000. You can call Mr. Paletti for event details at (408) 449-0442 or 892-8381.
On this Martin Luther King Day, we join fellow Americans in paying tribute to our greatest civil rights leader. It’s hard to imagine in our lifetimes that a day existed when entire neighborhoods and school districts were segregated on account of race. As a free society we have come a long way indeed.
Family court has been described as a “constitution-free zone.” The state has found a mechanism for oppression by exploiting our children to raise revenues and fees on the backs of fathers who simply find themselves unable to meet expenses after taxes and child support are deducted from their paychecks.
And it’s not just minorities being imprisoned for these debts. Our military and law enforcement represent a growing constituency of victims. In upstate New York a police investigator committed a murder-suicide upon leaving support court leaving three children without parents and the city with a $2 million liability, see Pearce v Longo.
Fathers are still 85% of all child support payors and we have become the most imprisoned population in the free world. A trillion dollar industry has forced dedicated dads to be on a constant defensive in these courts. It’s long past a time when equality and civility are achieved in the places most trusted to protect our basic human rights.
Administrator’s note: Leon is still in New York City working with Dr. Eric Braverman for parental equal rights. By now you must be aware of the gay equality decision from the Supreme Court. The New York Times on Saturday featured numerous photos of gay couples on its front page. Yet equal rights for fathers remains dormant in the aftermath. Hopefully connections and donations will materialize with reform efforts as they progress in Manhattan.
There will be no update from Leon today because he has become unexpectedly diverted to a crisis in his own parent-child relations. A startling story will emerge this week which will explain it all. It will disclose what has been happening without his knowledge since October, 2014 while seeking information, confidential or otherwise, from all our followers. He is concerned about the dangers to his daughters implicated by all this.
This next post will prove how innocent children can be purchased due to the schemes of gold digging adversaries in custody matters. You will finally understand why Leon took the stand he did in 2006 and refused to pay support to a scheming evil person. We hope to generate rallies and reports to proper authorities. The stand needed here will hopefully get national exposure.
In the meantime, Leon has been invited to stay on at the Braverman home in Tribecca. He has received support from moms who remain concerned that a fatherless America is destroying society (the real fathers not their substitutes). After a busy Saturday garnering input from mothers abused by the same system, he took time aside to know them better. We encourage our followers to continue their support of Dr. Braverman in the Manhattan courthouse at 60 Centre Street tomorrow at 10 am. And as always we ask you for your donations here at Leon Koziol.com.
