Legislator will crusade against domestic violence after her arrest for assaulting millionaire husband

IMG_E1249

A front page story in the November 19, 2019 edition of the Syracuse Post Standard features a county legislator and former broadcaster, Julie Abbott-Kenan. She was arrested for assaulting her millionaire husband and taking a baseball bat to his 2019 Chevy Silverado. After posting bail,  Julie will now lead the charge against domestic violence. You go girl!

In our last post we featured a recent anonymous letter advising me that my ex-wife, Kelly Hawse-Koziol, was parading a millionaire, Lou Usherwood, around town as the father of my two teen girls. I also related how Kelly Hawse assaulted me at an upscale restaurant in Newport, Rhode Island prior to our marriage.

Although the attack was witnessed by many, I did not press criminal charges. I simply got up from our table and left for Utica. Kelly jumped in my car and refused to exit even though her father lived nearby. Eight hours later, I locked her out of my home because such violence would form no part of a future family together.

After her relentless pleas on my front porch, I unlocked my dumb bolt and the rest is history (she had her own car parked outside and a nearby apartment). It was an act of forgiveness which made my daughters possible. While I would never have it any other way that fateful night, the price I ultimately paid is everything short of premature death.

Today Kelly Hawse presses on like a wind-up doll with her crusade to end all father-daughter contact. She does not know about other letters and communications which show that I may have protected her in the same manner as I did a former president of our local bar association. My ability to avoid child support jail was as fateful as my decision in the summer of ’99.

Now comes a paradox story for the ages. As we have said on this site time and again, you “just can’t make this stuff up.”

Steve Kenan is not just a millionaire, he is probably filthy rich. The son of Pyramid Companies founder, Bruce Kenan, the owner of Destiny Mall, he provided his wife, Julie, and their four children a 3,600 square foot waterfront home.

His major mistake was a failure to end his marriage sooner as I fortunately did. He filed for divorce in August, 2019, but his wife had other plans. Three months later, she engaged in a series of  violent acts. They were anything but a “lapse in judgment” as Julie now rationalizes.

First, Julie hit her husband in the face knocking his glasses to the ground. Then she picked them up and crushed them with her hands. Like an enraged, dumb-ass, unconcerned about the publicity this would cause her four children, husband and county legislature, she made the call to 9-1-1.

Obviously, as a domestic violence crusader, she followed the feminist handbook of making the first call. But when police arrived, the couple agreed to sleep in separate quarters with the injured party sleeping in an apartment above the garage. No arrests were made.

Now you would think that this would have ended it all. But knowing her gender favoritism, Julie returned hours later with a baseball bat and began smashing in the windshield to her husband’s new Chevy Silverado. She did so in full view of the garage apartment window.

Now this is about as calculated as it gets. Wisely Steve watched until Julie finished her tirade on the inanimate object. When he was able to assess the damage outside, Julie continued to provoke him with profanities from her own bedroom window.

This is when Steve was forced to call police. After all, they had four children, and mom was clearly not going to stop her crusade of provocations until she could succeed in causing the male victim to engage her physically.

Against this horrific backdrop, Julie Abbott-Kenan now announces to the media that “nothing matters more to (her) than protecting the welfare of (her) four children, who have already endured enough trauma in their young lives.” Were these her words or those of her criminal attorney?

Julie then went on to state that none of this would impact her duties on the county legislature which votes on matters of domestic violence. In that arena, sexist tactics have men on the defensive at all times. Let’s face it, if it was Steve arrested while holding such office, there would be petitions and protests for resignation.

I have made some difficult decisions in my life, in a modern day world getting more insane by the day. Kelly Hawse agreed to move out of our marital home which I financed and we both searched for a home for her to purchase. Indeed, until her millionaire scandals, we raised our children with few incidents.

Fortunately I was able to prevent the Kenan type harm to my daughters. And although they remain brainwashed by a father alienation crusader, hopefully they will one day realize how Julie and Kelly could easily have become one and the same.

Maybe I’ll send my girls the front porch video as a holiday or birthday gift.

Unlocking the “Dumb” Bolt to a Family Court Fiasco: Did this really happen?

IMG_E1245
Anonymous letter received last week mailed to my home with a warning of things to come

 

By Dr. Leon Koziol

Parenting Rights Institute

Just when you thought it was safe to come out as a court corruption whistle blower, along comes an anonymous note in my mail this past week. Among other things, it read: “Your money hungry ex-wife is at it again. Parading Lou Usherwood (Usherwood Office Technology) around town and school events like he is the father of your children.”

Those of you following this site, http://www.leonkoziol.com, might help me analyze the peculiar mailing and understand what is really going on. Think of it as the television series “Forensic Files” or “Dateline.” You may have some vital information I need to know, or maybe you’ve had a similar experience with some psycho alienator, the truly bad parent targeting the good one to extinction with the help of a family court gestapo.

Over the past decade of reform work, I have come across countless bizarre stories in the twilight zone known as family court. Yet I remain confounded about my own. How could a model dad and stellar attorney for over two decades become so viciously targeted to result in his total alienation from his daughters, now 16 and 17 years of age?

How could I have been subjected to a “shoot on sight” threat during a traffic stop involving a driver of my vehicle en route to my location last year? It had all the scary trappings of the Walter Scott murder by a traffic cop in South Carolina. That dad was shot dead five times in the back unarmed while fleeing a child support warrant. In our last post, we posed the question: “Is our government now killing for money?”

My ordeal is the shocking precedent for a court which has morphed into the “star chambers” that our founding fathers set out to prevent in our Constitution. It features the kind of tactics Adolph Hitler championed using children as his pretense. It was a war which had my own dad surviving five years in a Nazi camp. How could he imagine what would await his own family when coming to this country so long ago?

How could anyone imagine a court which styles itself as “family” causing so many parents to war with one another until their money runs out, to deny the countless suicides caused by anal custody and support tactics? Where is the accountability from higher courts which defer to the domestic “specialization” which supposedly exists here, the misconduct commissions like those in New York and California which look into a mere 10 % of all complaints?

Strangely, this anonymous note could help answer such questions. A similar one was placed next to my garage door in 2005. It contained the same warnings about this “Lou Usherwood.” At the time, Kelly Hawse-Koziol was still looking to reconcile after agreeing to move out of the marital home. We still stayed with our girls on my boat at Lake George and spent holidays together. I looked into the Usherwood report and determined him to be a millionaire with no threat to my girls.

Less than a year later, along came Joe Flihan Jr. who, unlike Usherwood at the time was being “paraded around” as the father of my children. Kelly Hawse-Koziol, the state’s appointed “custodial parent,” offered in an October 25, 2006 phone call to give up child support if I would give up my fathering rights to this childless millionaire. That set off the escalating family court proceedings over the next 13 years.

Of the 20-plus trial jurists assigned to my originally uncontested divorce, not a single one raised a concern over this parent substitution scandal. Flihan removed Hawse-Koziol from his home in 2016. During her two year stay there, she had falsified a relocation notice, pretending to still reside in the home she has now returned to. Once again, family court gave this fraud no remedy. Was money the cause for it all?

During the time of my civil rights practice I literally saved lives, and since the time of my reform crusade I saved veterans and professionals from suicide. At least three would gladly testify to this. In one case, I saved the life of the president of our local bar association. He was caught cheating with a client’s wife who happened to be his law office secretary. It led to a hotly contested divorce.

Late one night that client came to my home to announce that he was finally going to end it with this adulterous attorney. He was inflamed by a divorce judge who refused to allow us to place that attorney on the witness stand (which was necessary at the time to win our case). His reason was to prevent reputational harm to the bar president. At least this judge expressed his intent which so many others fail to do while orchestrating similar illicit outcomes.

Rather than backing down, I challenged this judge. Indeed I won my first appeal against him right out of law school. My client was pleased with the risks I took but was left with the perception that the courts were sufficiently corrupt for him to take the law into his own hands. I knew his history, i.e. a gun fire exchanged during a Florida road rage. I knew exactly his intent but prevailed upon him to relent.

I was later thanked by both the bar president and former client. Nothing good would have come of this and sadly, that president died of natural causes when he collapsed on a courtroom floor years later at age 46. The practice of law can do that to you. Yet today I am being vilified by members of that same bar despite all the good I have done consistent with ethical duty.

Back to the Usherwood note and the title of this post.

In the summer of 1999, I was dining with my future bride, Kelly Hawse, at an upscale restaurant in Newport, Rhode Island. At one point, I mentioned that I was still friendly with an ex-fiancee, a relationship broken off four years earlier. Why is that so hard for some to accept? The next thing I knew, my lights practically went out when she punched me in the head. Any closer to my nose and she could have killed me.

Restaurant patrons were shocked. Had the genders been reversed, they would surely have tackled me. With a bruise on my head, I had sufficient cause to have Kelly arrested with a criminal record today. Instead, I got up quietly and left for my vehicle convinced beyond repair that there would be no marriage proposal. To my continued shock, Kelly jumped into the passenger side and refused to exit (fortunately I had paid the bill).

Over the next eight hours on the trip to her dad’s home across Narragansett Bay and back to my home in upstate New York, I was unable to convince this woman to leave my car. She was so incessant with her pleading that at one point along Route 91 near Springfield, I left her in my new red corvette with the car running to find a sanctuary from her endless nagging. Now it’s gotta be bad for a guy to do that.

Finally I got home with a plan long fixed in my mind. I ran from my vehicle parked next to hers and locked the dumb bolt to my enclosed front porch. She had her own apartment but sat down at my door crying. Concerned about how the commotion might be interpreted, I videotaped this scene from my window never expecting it would become relevant for the rest of my life.

After calming her down, I unlocked the “dumb” bolt and the rest is history. My daughters were born three and four years later.

So, against this backdrop, who was it that authored the anonymous letter in 2019, a concerned school employee, jealous lover or Kelly Hawse herself in a scheme to provoke another incident for family court purposes?

Another Family Court Related Suicide! The Time For Talk is Over. Join Our Action Plan to Make a Stand!

IMG_1154
One of the many fitting posts on-line dedicated to Family Court’s latest statistic, suicide victim Ryan Kelly, RIP September 10, 2019, Suicide Prevention Day.

By Dr. Leon Koziol

Parenting Rights Institute

RIP:  Ryan Kelley

How many more suicides will it take before our money lusting behemoth known as Family Court is finally overhauled from a lawyer friendly environment to a parent friendly one? Government reports continue to show twenty-two veteran suicides per day, a major percentage of which are triggered by family court abuses. And now there’s another persecuted dad, Ryan Kelley, who took his life yesterday, September 10, 2019. Ironically, it was Suicide Prevention Day.

There are those who benefit from the family court industry (and at least one self-loving troll on Facebook) who will try to deflect attention to a DWI charge which Mr. Kelley was facing. But there are countless people who face such charges, and much worse, without even considering a terminal outcome. They pay the price and move on. In Mr. Kelley’s case, he would face child support jail after completing his DWI defense.

According to his suicide note and follower comments, Ryan Kelley was “trying to stay alive” for years in the face of family court abuses. Even a moronic troll should be able to figure out that such abuses over an extended period would lead to alcohol problems. If there’s one lesson this family court regime has taught us, there is no escape from its persecution. Alcohol and suicide became that escape for Ryan, all in his children’s so-called “best interests.”

For thirty years now, family reform groups have come and gone. One-and-out websites, Facebook pages and lofty crusades that died a quick death. When are we finally going to stop pontificating and conjuring up bizarre lawsuits and reform ideas with little or no competency? When are we finally going to leave the comfort of our routines and join together in protests nationwide?

I’ve been in this reform movement for over twelve years. I’ve spent 30 years in both federal and state courts successfully litigating complex cases as an attorney and litigant, even after the retaliation I suffered as a consequence (summarized in complaint below).  I’ve traveled from Paris to Hawaii and nearly every state in between meeting with victims and exposing court corruption.

Among the most promising events I have seen in all that time and travel is a three-day conference, lobbying effort and march which I sponsored this past May in Washington D.C. known as the Parent March on Washington. Under a plan of action put together by attendees, regional protests would follow. Instead only the carnage has.

Well, I, for one, who sacrificed everything short of life itself to end this carnage, never surrendered that plan of action. On September 26, 2019 we are planning a rally and march between Oneida County Family Court to Utica city court in upstate New York (dead center between Buffalo and NYC). Our target is ideal for capturing national attention. It is focused on my precedent-seeking case filed last month in New York Supreme Court which was recently removed to federal court by the Attorney General.

It is also focused  on a rude, racist and rogue judge who is reflective of the problems we all have in these courts. Gerald Popeo is a city court judge named as a defendant in my lawsuit. He was assigned out of order as the 41st trial level jurist on my family court custody and support cases. He is avenging a public censure issued against him by the New York Commission on Judicial Conduct on February 12, 2015. That censure makes him anything but a judge with the temperament to preside in family court.

Gerald “Scary Gerry” Popeo has blamed me, in part, for that censure. It cited racist comments, violent threats to litigants and the jailing of men in violation of their due process rights. The prosecutor recommended removal, and Popeo’s defense attorney (a former state supreme court judge) asked for a private reprimand. The Commission compromised with the public censure, thereby allowing him to become improperly assigned to my family matters to exact revenge.

The administrative judge who made all these suspect judge assignments since 2007 died last month at the age of 68. No replies to my complaints were made by him during the same period prior to his passing. And now, Judge Popeo, after issuing a near fatal warrant against me last year, is at it again with raw abuses of power and ethics. Here are some of the comments and conduct which a hearing judge found to be true against Popeo in the Commission decision:

“You’re standing there with a grin that I would love to come off the bench and slap off your face”

“Mr. Scully (prosecutor) is playing cigar store Indian at the moment.”

“You know what black people from New York City call black people from upstate New York? Country Niggers.”

In a shocking irony, a downstate African-American is now the top attorney in both upstate and downstate New York who was recently assigned to represent Judge Popeo in my precedent seeking civil rights case. New York Attorney General Letitia James filed a notice last week removing my case from state court to federal court.

The circumstances could not have come together more profoundly for our tentatively planned event on September 26th. We are now working on getting the permits. Contact us for more information at (315) 380-3420 and help make this post viral.

EARLY BIRD BREAKING NEWS: Racist Judge Censured by Judicial Commission now defended by state’s top attorney in civil rights case. New York’s first African-American Attorney General Letitia James moves case from state to federal court.

Parenting Rights Institute

At 9:30 a.m. on Friday, September 6, 2019, an upstate New York city judge somehow assigned to the family court case involving a prominent civil rights attorney will issue an arrest warrant to incarcerate him on a fraudulent child support debt. It is expected to occur at the Oneida County Family Court in Utica, New York.

Civil Rights Advocate Leon Koziol has been exposing corruption in divorce and family courts for over ten years after a stellar career as a civil rights attorney. It led to the destruction of his professional career and father-daughter relationships in retaliation for his whistle blowing and court reform activity.

Among those abusing judicial office to execute on a concerted effort to discredit this principled crusader is Utica City Judge Gerald Popeo.  He caused a warrant and “shoot-on-site” threat by a traffic cop last year. It resembled the police murder of Walter Scott in South Carolina on April 4, 2015, an African-American father shot dead five times in the back unarmed while fleeing a child support warrant.

As a result, Dr. Koziol filed a civil rights case against Popeo and his co-conspirators in New York Supreme Court on August 7, 2019. Popeo retaliated by ordering a sheriff deputy to serve a summons to appear for a child support hearing despite $35,500 in support payments never credited by the state support collection agency.

The goal here is simply to use child support as a pretext to punish Dr. Koziol with incarceration to avenge his supposed involvement in a judicial misconduct hearing against the same Judge Popeo. Here is the famous Footnote 1 of the New York Commission on Judicial Conduct decision of February 12, 2015 regarding Popeo’s shocking conduct while in a judicial robe:

It was alleged that after a court session had ended, respondent (Popeo) asked the lawyer, who is African-American, if the lawyer knew what black people from New York City call black people from upstate New York and when the lawyer responded in the negative , (Judge Popeo) replied, “Country Niggers.”

A hearing judge appointed to hear the evidence found that this did happen. However the Commission which did not hear the evidence decided that it was the only one of the many instances of serious misconduct which was too “50-50” to use against Popeo. He was represented by a white former state judge. The prosecuting attorney recommended removal but the Commission decided on a mere public censure.

You cannot change the spots on a leopard, and because Popeo was allowed to resume the bench as a repeat offender, he was assigned in bizarre fashion as “Acting Family Court Judge” on Dr. Koziol’s support and custody cases in February, 2018. He quickly denied all contact with Leon’s daughters and proceeded to orchestrate grounds for support incarceration in retaliation for that censure.

Leon responded with the state court civil rights lawsuit. Letitia James, New York’s first African-American Attorney General then became Gerald Popeo’s defense lawyer by operation of law.  This now creates the unprecedented situation of a “New York City black” in Popeo’s category referring to “upstate blacks” as “country niggers.” At the time of Popeo’s racial slur, Letitia James was the Public Advocate of New York City.

In a highly unusual move, Ms. James filed a removal notice this week which immediately transferred Dr. Koziol’s civil rights case to federal court. The removal notice is reproduced here and provides the first major victory for aggrieved parents seeking to hold state judges accountable for constitutional and human rights violations in federal courts.

Such courts routinely dismiss domestic cases out of deference to state court “expertise.” Soon we will know whether this racist judge issues his arrest warrant and jail order against this model dad and parent rights advocate who sacrificed everything for his precious daughters and parental justice in these courts.

The removal places an automatic restraint on the state court proceedings until a federal judge can rule. But it is expected that this rogue, rude and racist judge will press forward regardless. You can keep up with Leon’s crusade by contacting him directly at (315) 796-4000.

Enough of the insanity! Let’s finally pull together and support Dr. Leon Koziol in this vital cause to protect parents legally residing in America.

Jurassic Justice: A highly acclaimed video by a mom and dad victimized by parental alienation in our courts

By Dr. Leon Koziol

Parenting Rights Institute

In order to bring greater awareness and overdue reform to our nation’s divorce and family courts, I completed a book manuscript for a mother victimized by parental alienation and court corruption in Montgomery County, Pennsylvania. Entitled “Jurassic Justice,” an ongoing ordeal has prevented its publication. Meanwhile I completed and published my own shocking ordeal as a judicial whistleblowing lawyer entitled, Satan’s Docket. You can order a hard copy or download a PDF version at http://www.parentingrightsinstitute.com.

When Tamara Sweeney and I completed her book manuscript, we decided to do a homemade video to promote it. It was a spontaneous thing that came out miraculously well. It was not choreographed or directed by Ridley Scott but came out as if it was professionally created without all the costs and frills. It is being reproduced here because every mom and dad victimized by these courts should learn the background and signs of parental alienation with a goal stamping it out before it gets malignant.

In follow-up to our highly successful Parent March on Washington earlier this month, we must contact the members of Congress we visited on Lobby Day so that our hard work is not in vain. We must also prepare regional protests in their congressional districts. I am currently planning one in upstate New York in the wake of a 70,000 signature petition demanding the removal of a judge here. It will be the largest protest yet set for late September. We’re not just talking about the problems. We’re an action group doing something about it. I will be getting the band back together for this one starting with conference calls and a new access code next week.

In the meantime, I will continue to post this short video which accurately depicts the epidemic that we are all fighting together. It is important that you do everything you can to make this video viral because we are being suppressed and censored by a trillion dollar industry. You can e-mail me directly at leonkoziol@gmail.com or call our PRI office at (315) 380-3420. And PLEASE donate to our cause on this site, http://www.leonkoziol.com. We took a big loss on the last event but it was well worth the investment for the sake of victimized parents, families and children everywhere.

 

Next March Planned for Upstate New York after a 70,000 Signature Petition Seeks Removal of Judge James McClusky

IMG_0954

By Dr. Leon Koziol

Parenting Rights Institute

On the heels of a highly successful Parent March on Washington and Congressional Lobby Initiative which I was able to put together in less than three months, I promised my followers a next step which I hope will ignite similar (regional) marches and protests across the country.

I am focused on a motorcade from Fort Drum in northern New York to Utica, New York with a protest seeking a removal of four judges in addition to Judge James McCluskey of Watertown, New York. I have a sufficient local following to make this happen but welcome all from around the country who want to keep our momentum going.

The motorcade is designed to draw attention to the veterans who have committed suicides as a result of family court abuses, see i.e. Purple Heart’s Final Beat, Second Class Citizen.Org. Fort Drum is among the largest military installations in the country charged with training and mobilization of all active services. In 1959, it was the site of Agent Orange experiments which later prevented healthy births for Vietnam veterans.

Fort Drum exists in New York’s Fifth Judicial District which has become a hotbed of judge misconduct. Corruption here is being ignored or glossed over by a state judicial commission dominated by lawyers. Over a 12-year period, all of my 30-plus complaints have failed to produce a single inquiry without explanation. Such vast inaction only encourages more misconduct.

Adding to the corruption, certain judges here are being allowed to retaliate against judicial whistle blowers. It is a shameless abuse of judicial office with my ordeal as a quintessential example. If they can do this to a prominent civil rights attorney and model parent, imagine what they will do to you.

For example, one of my custody judges, Gerald Popeo, was merely given a public censure by this commission in 2015 despite being found guilty of making racial slurs to an African-American attorney. He referred to a prosecutor as a “cigar store Indian,” threatened to come off the bench to assault a litigant for giving him a “smirk,” and he jailed men for contempt in violation of their due process rights. How much more misconduct is required for removal?

Because he was not removed, he managed to get assigned to my family court matters (as a city judge!). Among so many other abuses, he failed to provide a child support hearing transcript for appeal which showed a $45,500 fraud (2015 payment never credited to me by the state’s child support collection center). Instead, he issued a support warrant with a near fatal outcome after blaming me for that public censure at a local bar.

Now comes a judge who I sued last year for a continued abuse of my reform work as a judicial whistle blower. Judge James McClusky refused to give any jail time for a 26-year old bus driver who was found guilty of raping a 14-year old girl earlier this year. Over 70,000 signatures have already been obtained seeking his removal in only a few months.

McClusky’s boss, Administrative Judge James Tormey, heads the Fifth Judicial District, but he is playing politics with accountability that litigants rightfully demand. For example, his chief family court clerk recovered $600,000 against him (and my pedophile custody judge Bryan Hedges) in a civil rights case due to retaliation against her for refusing to engage in “political espionage,” see Morin v Tormey, 626 F.3d 40 (2nd Cir. 2010).

As victims, we need to join forces to bring accountability to this judicial district. We need to make an example here so that other regions of our country will do the same. We have reports delivered and discussed with members of Congress during our May 2nd Lobby Day which seek a federal investigation of human rights abuses in these courts. We must now make follow-up calls to those members before they sweep it aside like so many others on the subject.

There will be no conference call tonight after my efforts to unveil this “next step” was upstaged by a pair of “moles and trolls.” Those interruptions have been recorded and reported. In the meantime, I have been given a new access code with the same call number. Just contact me for that code if you wish to participate in our continuing reform effort. You can call the Parenting Rights Institute at (315) 380-3420 or e-mail me at leonkoziol@gmail.com.

Finally, after taking a $5,000 loss on a March and Lobby event valued in excess of $50,000 (if sponsored by a special interest), I continue to seek donations and product purchases on my website, http://www.leonkoziol. com. That site will continue to serve as an information source. Please spread the word.

D.C. Metropolitan Police Grants Permit for Parent March from White House to the Capitol down Pennsylvania Avenue!

That’s me at 5 foot eleven crushed between two of our Parade Marshals, NFL Super Bowl winner Jamie Brown and Marine veteran Michael Paladino

(315) 796-4000

Nothing like this has ever happened before in our nation’s capital. The “Family of America” will be marching down an entire lane of Pennsylvania Avenue, the most prominent thoroughfare in all of America, from the White House to the halls of Congress this Friday, May 3, 2019.

They will be demanding a federal investigation of human rights violations in our nation’s divorce and family courts. It is a three day event beginning this Wednesday, May 1, 2019. Click here for itinerary, purpose and related details.

It was a bear of a process but I was able to make this happen. Now YOU have to make it happen by calling your friends and neighbors to make the trip to the actual March which  begins assembling at Noon on Friday, May 3, 2019 at Lafayette Square Park located across from the entry way to the White House.

You should imagine yourself making history as you pass by the stately grounds and greatest edifices of the free world. This your property, and for one day at least, our nation’s capital belongs to the moms and dads which made all this possible.

All four jurisdictions that I have had to deal with along this parade march have been gracious and efficient. There were many conditions of the several march permits which had to be satisfied, most notably those related to security. This includes the Commander of March Permits at the D.C. Metropolitan Police Department, Secret Service, Homeland Security Bureau, National Park Service and Capitol Park Police.

I have appointed marshals for the parade consisting of two divisions, Michael Paladino, a U.S. Marine veteran and Jamie Brown, a Super Bowl winner of the Denver Broncos football team. Mr. Paladiono quickly re-enlisted for service after the 9-11 attacks, and during training exercises he was hit by a vehicle from behind. He survived but spent the next two years in a wheel chair. He lived to experience this day.

Jamie has been active in the head injury litigation against the National Football League and he has been a victim of PTSD arising from his mistreatment there and in Family Court. I met him after a National Whistleblower Summit in Washington two years ago.

Typically he is approached for autographs and you may want to get one between Noon and 1pm when we assemble for the Friday March. There may be other famous people present as this grows but I cannot guarantee anything.

On tonight’s nationwide conference call, I will be doing a state-by-state roll call of March participants. I want to get a sense of our national presence for the March. I am also working feverishly to wrap up the March addendum to our lobby packets which will be distributed to all attendees at our May 1, 2019 orientation event at the Congressional Ballroom, 550 C Street SW, Washington D.C. (a few blocks below the U.S. Capitol.

This addendum features the ordeals submitted to me and Melissa Antio of Michigan over the past two months. I was able to get my friend (print shop owner) to grant yet one more day for its production to include some submissions received as late as this morning (well beyond our deadline). That means I will probably be working well into the night on this project alone.

People continue to call in to announce their attendance. Our Speakers List for Lobby Day, May 2, 2019, at 7 pm in the same ballroom still awaits one more reply. Dr. Mark Roseman is among those who have been confirmed. That list will probably not be publicized on this site until late tonight or tomorrow.

As always, our daily call number at 7 pm EST tonight is (605) 313- 4165; Access code is  763491 when prompted. This number will remain as our conversation forum throughout this three-day event beginning with our American Parent Caravan leaving Liberty State Park, Jersey City, and ending with our Candle Light Vigil in front of the U.S. Capitol (facing the Washington Monument) on the evening of May 3, 2019 (after our March ends).

Call the media, spread the word and make your donations on this site. This will be a grand affair but a costly one as well. Now you have to get the numbers to show up. I can’t wait to meet all of you finally in person.
