Miracle On 34th Street

Okay, so we don’t have a 34th Street where I’m from. We’re more like the rest of America when we reach Ninth Ave in nearby Yorkville (not the one in Manhattan). Anyway, if you’ve been following our updates for the meeting this Sunday in NYC, I submitted a petition for writ of certiorari to the United States Supreme Court on Wednesday (a request for review of one of my test cases for parenting equity in our courts). Now for the rest of the story. It almost didn’t happen, and I wish I had a nice professional explanation on how it miraculously did minutes before a 6 pm deadline. But I don’t. Simply stated, it must have had something to do with that teleconference this past Sunday with religious and family rights advocates. Anyway, after working long hours on the project, I discovered on the morning of its due date that the petition did not satisfy certain highly technical print requirements. By 11 am, I nearly abandoned the filing effort because in our small town, there is no print shop capable of assembling 55 booklets of the kind which the Supreme Court requires in a matter of hours. Then a friend at my regular location referred me to a special contact. I quickly called and drove my papers to his shop (we have no traffic problems in our metro area). I then learned that he had completed such a writ project only weeks earlier and reworked the booklets after they had been rejected (giving them a 60 day extension). Imagine the chances of that in our town given the small number of petitions nationwide. Even more fortunate, the two partners had done work for my office when it had a staff and both had experienced parenting injustices among family and friends. They were familiar with my reform movement and had evidently read my full page advertisement which was recently paid for by a former client (available on this site). They dropped everything, directed me to e-mail them certain files, and by the grace of God, the 40 booklets with copies upon adversary counsel were all completed and timely submitted with filing fee. This may not have occurred on 34th Street, but it features the same Christmas “spirit”. Happy Holidays to all of our friends and followers. We look forward to seeing those of you coming to the Plaza Hotel.

Koziol Files Writ Before United States Supreme Court

On December 21, 2010, civil rights advocate Leon R. Koziol submitted a Petition for Writ of Certiorari before the United States Supreme on a constitutional challenge to New York’s custody and support laws. Three principal questions are being raised: 1) whether the state has exceeded a constitutional limit upon child control practices in domestic relations litigation; 2) whether the state promotes institutional discrimination on account of gender in these same processes; and 3) whether the state has impaired the liberty rights of a father and attorney to maintain a paternal family unit and fair participation in our state courts after publicly criticizing abusive and unethical practices. The petition arises from a mandamus and prohibition action dismissed by the high court of New York recently which made these issues ripe for review by our nation’s highest court. The Supreme Court accepts relatively few cases for decision each year, however, this petition features questions of nationwide importance to parents and children. It represents one of many efforts to reform antiquated laws which fleece families of their resources through manufactured controversies. These challenged laws coerce parents to fight over their own children in public courtrooms in lieu of private agreements without government interference. A planning session in New York City early next week seeks to organize a national parenting rights convention and spring rally in Washington D.C. An alternate route to the Supreme Court is well underway in connection with two actions consolidated by a federal court judge last month. A fascinating read, we plan to publish components of Mr. Koziol’s writ to our followers across the country at www.leonkoziol.com in coming weeks.

Seeking Co-Sponsors of Guest Column for Media Nationwide

Attached as a link is a guest column considered for publication in the New York Times recently.  An editor reported this past week that he has decided not to run it. In that case, I informed them that I would submit the same column for publication nationwide on alternate sites and metro media.  Of course this effort can best be advanced through co-sponsorship and the assistance of our growing numbers of supporters. A copy is attached and available to any interested party who would like to submit it for example to their local press. Kindly return any amended versions for my approval containing new or modified content.  This can be done through same day e-mail at: leonkozioljd@gmail.com. We are hoping to secure growing interest in our cause before the New York meeting.

Mothers For Judicial Accountability Seeks to Join Federal Lawsuit

Yesterday, Mr. Koziol was contacted by Bridget Marks, a parenting rights activist and founder of Mothers for Judicial Accountability. After providing him with a fascinating and prominent background, she expressed an interest in joining his federal lawsuit filed on November 10, 2010. Ms. Marks has been featured on national shows and radio programs in connection with her successful litigation targeting parental alienation practices. She was also the impetus for the passage of “Bridget’s Law” in New York State. Ms. Marks is expected to attend our Monday brunch at the Plaza Hotel on the 27th.

RE:  Federal Court Decision

A decision was received this past week in connection with a parenting rights test case filed against the New York Chief Justice, Unified Court System and others on November 10, 2010. A federal court judge reviewed the background together with an earlier case filed in February, 2009 and argued in September, 2010. An order was then entered which consolidated both actions with the earlier one designated as the “Lead Case” and the latter one as the “Member Case”. All motions for dismissal filed by the New York court defendants were denied along with the plaintiffs’ motion for preliminary injunction. Both actions were then allowed to proceed without prejudice to renew those motions in the consolidated action.

This procedure is not unlike one employed in the Oneida land claim litigation of which I was a part during the nineties, see i.e. Oneida Nation v County of Oneida, 132 F. Supp. 2d 71 (NDNY 2000)(involving successful maintenance of gaming compact challenge against tribal motion for injunction). The current“Lead Case”, brought on behalf of “parents similarly situated”  will soon enter its third year with opportunity for class action status in the event other victims of custody, support and alienation practices seek to join or intervene. This is a comprehensive challenge based upon rights protected under our Constitution and can be viewed in its entirety (the “Member Case”) on federal pacer docket and elsewhere on this site. A planning session surrounding this case and a national Parenting Rights Convention is scheduled for December 26-27, 2010 at the Plaza Hotel in New York City, see details on this site.

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.
