The following Guest Column appeared in a mainstream newspaper of upstate New York 12 years ago. Read the highly informative content. Has anything changed today?
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 …
By Dr. Leon Koziol
Parenting Rights Institute
This month I completed an expensive business plan for the Parenting Rights Institute to secure major funding for an initiative to reverse the escalating process of criminalizing fathers in our nation’s family courts. It is based on my thirty years of litigation experience, countless case studies across America and ten years of courageous reform efforts in a conscientious stand taken against my profession. Below is the powerful opening statement behind this latest initiative. Please do your part by promoting it, sharing it and supporting us financially.
Over the past half century, western society has seen an alarming transformation in fatherhood, from its traditional respected status to an incompetent, violent, absentee reputation. We have seen this trend in politics, entertainment, school districts, child rearing and social institutions. The act of denigrating a male parent or blaming him for a myriad of problems has become fashionable, even encouraged without so much as a critical footnote from mainstream media.
The infection of social thought with dad stigmatization might not be rectified any time soon, but when reverse sexism obtains legal protection, it is the duty of a self-governing people to respond. That duty begins in our family courts because this is where protected discrimination is most blatant and harmful to all society. A Supreme Court Justice once described these tribunals as “kangaroo” courts, but conditions since the time of that opinion have only seriously worsened.
This prospectus will show how that occurred, why corrective action is urgent, and it comes from a parental advocate who successfully litigated complex cases in federal and state courts for over thirty years. The goal is to raise sufficient funds behind a research, watchdog and lobbying entity to properly police and reform a self-regulated judicial bureaucracy where support enforcement and domestic violence by fathers obtain state prosecution but false accusations, clear perjury by spiteful moms, custody abuses and extortion through incarceration are ignored or covered up.
For background, during the 1970s, Congress began legislating laws to track down absentee fathers to ease a growing welfare burden. Well intentioned, these laws were never divested of male parent targeting. Exemplary is a January, 2016 “Dead Beat Dad” crusade by Arizona Governor Doug Ducey. Over time, the scope of enforcement practices was enlarged to include all “noncustodial parents.” Its effect was to merge good, bad and absentee dads so that federal funding could be vastly increased while jeopardizing the long term viability of social security.
In a quest to maximize state revenues under Title IV-D of the Social Security Act, performance quotas were devised based on the number and magnitude of child support orders manufactured in family courts. The new rule of law became a profit motive for lawyers and lawyers on the bench. Through these “incentive grants,” judicial impartiality was sacrificed to the almighty buck with much less value placed on father-child relationships. In callous manner, family judges were incarcerating dads to alarming levels for a debt euphemistically termed “child support.”
In other debt instances, such imprisonment would be unlawful. But with children as its pretext and contempt of court as a weapon, the unconstitutional debtor prison was functionally resurrected with no public outcry. Gradually, these tribunals were rendered inherently prejudiced against fathers who may have simply been the victim of a bad economy. Lawyers were retained often with borrowed funds on a good faith belief that basic rights would avert the horror of being caged like an animal. No one came to the rescue because foxes were guarding the hen house.
In one of the most ironic twists, girls, women and moms were slaughtered along the way. Their own fathers, brothers, sons and partners became victims while countless dads recognizing the futility of fighting for their parental rights simply walked out of their children’s lives. This only added to the epidemic, undermining the original goals behind these laws. As the carnage grew, so did the number and variety of beneficiaries in the way of evaluators, “experts,” psychiatrists, pharmaceutical companies, mediators and more. They turned sparks of conflict into forest fires.
At first blush, the notion that courts are criminalizing fathers for profit is a hard pill to swallow. However, stripped of all the legal jargon and propaganda, draconian enforcement practices have been making criminals of non-criminal parents for many years while inciting crimes of horrific proportion including those committed by fatherless children in our schools, communities and workplaces. If those debtor practices were limited to the standard income and asset executions, we would not have the dubious distinction as the most imprisoned nation in the “free” world.
Despite profound advancements in equal rights for women, minorities and newly recognized classes of people, the Census Bureau continues to report that nearly 85% of parents paying child support are fathers. If those statistics were recorded for male employment, women would be rioting well beyond Trump’s White House. A review of public warrant lists shows that as much as 20% of arrestees are connected to support. Inmate lists follow the same pattern. Nearly all are fathers with veterans and minorities most vulnerable to suicides, violence and drug addiction.
Fatherless children are often a factor in mass shootings. Even where dads remain active in separate parenting environments, their authority is countermanded by judges purporting to act in the “best interests” of children they can never truly know. The emasculation of men, a futility in asserting a father’s basic rights and the sexist stigma of “dead beat dads” promote abandonment of vital parenting roles which have stood the test of time. This is a system which presumes that a dad has no desire to support his offspring while torturing the very incentive for doing so.
There is no refund or accountability when recipients of these welfare styled benefits spend their tax-free “awards” on drug abuse, gambling or vanity excesses. Meanwhile, judges charged with the highest duty of safeguarding our rights are eroding them instead. An antiquated “child custody” system remains “the law” in most states in lieu of progressive shared parenting because custody and support “wars” are lucrative whereas co-parenting is not. For the same reason, the damage caused by this revenue generating scheme is highly suppressed from public knowledge.
Money has become the priority in place of our children’s true best interests turning family courts into a socialist industry while making a mockery of our constitutions. Criminals, even violent felons, often receive lower sentences, less stigma and far greater rights than dads do here. They have freedom from self-incrimination, indigent free counsel, stricter due process protections, mandated disclosure, highest standard of guilt beyond a reasonable doubt, jury rights and more.
In shocking contrast, a father can be incarcerated for extended periods without so much as an accusation of a crime and none of the rights just cited. And it can be wrapped up in a matter of months, even weeks. So reckless has it become that a contempt prosecution can be commenced by mail service of a summons with boldface capital letter warnings of arrest and imprisonment for up to seven years. Any non-appearance is ruthlessly answered by an arrest warrant instead of the standard default for other civil cases with an undertaking (bail) as a condition for release.
Should an errant debtor be fortunate to avoid immediate incarceration on a warrant, he will be “released on his own recognizance” no differently than an accused rapist. The entire process has been turned upside down with only the prosecuting parent given the benefit of free counsel. Indeed, when viewing the substance and not the formalities of these “family” court cases, they bear all the trappings of a criminal prosecution without the necessary constitutional safeguards.
In short, these “constitution-free zones” facilitate the easy imprisonment of fathers for profit. Worse yet, unlike any other targeted member of society, a debtor can become a revolving door inmate for an indefinite term of confinement, theoretically to the extreme of life imprisonment as a repeat offender. This is achieved through other draconian practices such as “imputed income” (judge speculated earnings), accruing monthly support obligations during incarceration, and a federal felony conviction should a father cross state lines under circumstances of flight.
Collection practices mirror those of loan sharks and underworld figures. Family judges know that payment will be made by high risk loans, employers or loved ones. The fleecing process is backed by the power of confinement. It was this sort of civil contempt, depicted as “keys to the jailhouse,” which landed California attorney and judicial whistle blower Richard Fine in solitary at age 70 for 18 months. As the Los Angeles County Sheriff aptly decried on CNN, such cells would have been better occupied by criminals given early releases due to prison overcrowding.
The most ominous aspect of this court process is that the parent who has been advised to war against the other has little knowledge of the potential magnitude of destruction until it is too late. The children may suffer most in the end while the lawyers and beneficiaries simply walk away from the damage they cause when the money has all been tapped. Then they blame the outcomes on their clients. There is no honor, remorse or concern for any of the carnage because this is “the law” without any mention made of the bar associations and special interests which produced it.
In consequence, meaningful reform efforts have failed across the board. Protests have likewise been suppressed through abuses of a parens patriae power that would be the envy of the FBI, CIA and IRS. Viet Nam veteran Thomas Ball protested by burning himself alive in front of a New Hampshire family court. Unlike the self-immolation he tried to copy in Morocco resulting in global media coverage, this one got little notice. They merely swept his ashes into a sewer. Still, he left a manifesto showing how to construct Molotov cocktails for attacking courthouses.
What little reform may be evident is focused on symptoms such as domestic violence prevention. Its futility is borne out by such cases as an upstate New York police investigator who committed a murder-suicide leaving four children without either parent. A high conflict divorce led to the easily obtained protection order against the dad followed by career damage and the confiscation of weapons. When support court left investigator Joseph Longo subsisting on marginal income, it was the last straw. He resorted to a common kitchen knife to register his form of protest.
The tactic of child exploitation to serve an illicit purpose is not new. It has been routinely employed by tyrannical regimes throughout history. For example, Adolph Hitler advised in his book, Mein Kampf, that if the state simply declares it is acting for the benefit of children, the people will “happily” give up their rights. Here, the tyrant is not so much a person as it is a giant bureaucracy and the illicit nature is not a war machine but an insatiable taxing monster. It has been unleashed on sensitive family relationships with little regard for the higher laws of nature.
While all this background was not known by Walter Scott on April 4, 2015, the gist of it was when he fled a child support warrant at a traffic stop in South Carolina. A “repeat offender” of child support orders, he had done enough prison time without commission of a crime and was shot dead in the back five times unarmed by a white officer. It would have been publicized otherwise but the horrific act was captured on cell phone by a concealed pedestrian. That event was blamed on racism, but as we shall see, our family courts were now killing for money.

Have you finally had enough? Hardly a day goes by without another shocking display of government corruption impacting our nation like never before. And no one with a conscience is doing much about it short of knee-jerk reactions to catastrophic events.
From Bernie Madoff to the doctoring of public disclosures in the Orlando mass murders, the public is routinely the victim. Law abiding gun owners are targeted instead of the killer whose terrorist communications were doctored. So who’s the real enemy here?
As a self governing nation, we have a duty under our Constitution to make a stand. This is your government they are corrupting, your IRS paid for by your tax dollars that is suppressing free speech, your courts which are complicit in the scandals. It’s time for a mass rally against corruption in Washington D.C. on Constitution Day, 2016.
That’s only three (3) months, so if you love your country, your families and way of life, join us for a defining moment in American history. Don’t expect your neighbor or the few activists here to do it for you. We can be just as apathetic, bowling, basketball-watching or “raising awareness” to no one who cares from the comfort of our keyboards, but nothing will be gained until we make our grievances known, like it says in the First Amendment.
So get started now. Don’t get diluted through distractions. You mean something under the true government. Remember the phrase “We the People?” That’s you and me along with the rest accepting corruption as if it is to be expected now. Exercise your rights as you would your own body for the health of a government we created.Get organized in your back yards, construct the protest signs, and make arrangements with organizations to be there.
This a one time event with broad based sponsorship. Any person or organization can join. There are no barriers to participation. A steering committee of professionals has been formed to unite us behind this important cause of liberty. But we will secure no permits for the event near the Lincoln Monument until enough support and donations have emerged.
As a civil rights advocate, attorney for a former president of the National Organization for Women and now the Director of National League of Fathers, Inc. I’ve done my part and sacrificed everything for equality and justice in our nation’s courts. Now it’s your turn to be part of a growing movement to “Clean Up Government.”
For those of you who think we are not on the verge of a crisis, note the following: When a group of parents (including me) gave testimony before a Public Corruption Commission on Constitution Day, 2013, we were instantly targeted. That Commission was prematurely dissolved when evidence began implicating those who created the Commission. Top leaders of state government were eventually convicted of federal crimes and sent to prison.
If we focus only on corruption involving innocent children and families, the condition of our government becomes very alarming, much beyond the eroding of “public confidence in the integrity and impartiality of the judiciary” as found in United States v Cossey, 632 F.3d 82 (2nd Cir. 2011)(federal judge employing a human gene to be discovered 50 years from now to make his decisions).
One exemplary case (you know there are many more) involves a New York Supreme Court Judge in Brooklyn caught on camera taking a bribe from a divorce lawyer. It was part of a scam to shift custody from a mother to an influential father. Had the feisty mom not convinced the FBI to act on her evidence, this judge, Gerald Garson, would still be on the bench dispensing “justice.”
However his conviction of federal crimes was not the shocking part. Due punishment was compromised by colleagues supporting his early release in 2009. Now you have to ponder that for a moment. If disgraced ex-Judge Garson is still being defended after a crime at the heart of our justice system, what does that say for their tolerance of corruption generally?
While the “Honorable” Gerald Garson was busy generating unreported income, another Supreme Court Judge, Thomas Spargo, was busy securing a bribe against a father arguing a client case before him. At a dinner conversation, he requested $10,000 to defray the cost of legal fees needed against misconduct charges pending against him. Spargo was already being prosecuted for judge misconduct and resorted to criminal behavior to get out.
These and other cases are easily found on the internet to verify a corruption epidemic of undefined proportion. Most people view judges as honorable office holders committed to justice, but behind the black robes, in the recesses of chambers and among discreet exchanges in restaurants, bars and golf courses, there is often quite another set of characteristics at play.
In my own case, I challenged a custody judge based on his undue parental alienation at a closed session with my girls (known as a Lincoln hearing without parents allowed in). I was especially vulnerable with all the corruption I was exposing. My motion for his removal was granted despite lawyers declaring his reputation as one beyond reproach. He was removed altogether from the bench the next year after admitting to sexual misconduct on his handicapped five year old niece (Syracuse Family Judge Bryan Hedges).
The chief ethics lawyer and staff attorneys in the witch hunt executed against me were terminated by the state Supreme Court for falsifying their time sheets. No public charges, ethical or criminal, were ever brought in contrast to the treatment of the commoners who steal from government. And these are the standard bearers of lawyer ethics charged with oversight of billing practices that bankrupt parents in divorce and family court.
Worse yet, the victims are left with no recourse. This is because judges have legislated for themselves a rule of immunity even from malicious conduct unlike the rest of us when we violate the public trust. The people have never consented to such a rule. To verify, consider a proposition on the ballot where government was proposing to act in a purely malicious way against a constituent. Such a proposition would surely fail by a near unanimous vote.
Ex-Chief Justice Sol Wachtler of New York’s high court was imprisoned for numerous crimes. He is back practicing law and teaching ethics while his campaign poster remains on public display at the state’s high court. In his book, After the Madness, he explained that judges are made to believe they are gods. He went so far as to direct paid court staff to dig up grounds for preventing licensure of a lawyer assisting his mistress to discover a man making extortionist threats on her daughter. That man turned out to be the judge himself.
Then there’s the family judge in Michigan, the “Honorable” Wade McCree, whose case defied all manner of ethics. He admitted to adulterous sex in chambers with a litigant while presiding over her child support case. Judge McCree was removed from the bench for all sorts of misconduct involving numerous cases only after the affair (and pregnancy) was confirmed. The father, placed on a tether for support arrears during this affair was denied recovery by a federal appeals court on grounds of judge immunity.
In Pennsylvania, two judges were imprisoned for the now infamous “Kids for Cash” scandal. It featured kick-backs from contractors benefited by the number of minors sent to juvenile centers. Over 4,000 convictions had to be overturned by the state’s Supreme Court now plagued by its own corruption. Two of its justices resigned due to misconduct leaked by a new Attorney General.
That same court retaliated by suspending her law license prior to any hearing or conviction. Even while I was filing my case before the Supreme Court this past week for corrective action, the same court was handing down a decision condemning the misconduct of that state’s ex-Chief Justice, see Williams v Pennsylvania, 579 US __ (June 9, 2016).
A natural outcome of the foregoing is lawlessness. Although examples abound, in my small city, a police investigator committed murder-suicide on his ex-spouse after leaving support court. Draconian practices produce homeless victims. In San Diego today, it was reported that a 50 year homeless man was beaten to death by two high school boys and a cheerleader. Does it get any sicker from inept state interference in parental discipline?
Facing such prospects, this law man used a common kitchen knife to complete his crime, voiding any deterrent effect of 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). An unarmed black father, Walter Scott, was shot dead five times in the back by a police officer in South Carolina simply because he was fleeing a child support warrant at a traffic stop. That city paid out $3 million so far.
In his book, A Promise to Ourselves, actor Alec Baldwin gives a scathing report of his protracted divorce with Kim Basinger. After a voice message to his daughter was made public, Mr. Baldwin was condemned as an abusive parent. Largely censored were the alienation tactics which fueled this exchange. So painful was the aftermath that he admitted to suicidal tendencies at his high rise apartment and during a drive to the Berkshires. Years later the same daughter was featured in a second wedding ceremony for her father.
The 2011 case of Thomas Ball is also instructive. An oppressed father seeking to ignite protest burned himself alive in front of a family courthouse in Keene, New Hampshire. There was no mainstream coverage in contrast to a similar self-immolation in Morocco which attracted world protest. This incident was cited only last month by me during a human rights conference to dissuade a prominent figure in Manhattan from attempting self destruction as a final reform tactic.
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 another victim from suicide at a parent convention I sponsored in 2011, but the unsuccessful instances are more telling, see i.e. Purple Heart’s Final Beat, Second Class Citizen.Org (2009). Virtually all responders on 9-11 were men entitled to equal treatment in these courts. Yet a vast number became eternally separated without any reform.
Enough ! Be a part of the solution. These are your fellow citizens at risk. Contact me for further information at Parenting Rights Institute (315) 380-3420. I will not respond to keyboarding exercises. Serious inquiries only.

A Plea To The Trump Campaign
Administrator’s Note: In yesterday’s post we introduced you to Moms and Dads for Trump or MAD for Trump, a new political action group that has been well received over the past 24 hours. Today, we are calling upon visitors to LeonKoziol.Com for your help!
For years now, you knew there was something wrong with the system. Like many parents, you may have even doubted yourself. Until now, the pieces of the puzzle are finally coming together. The chickens are coming home to roost. It’s no longer a secret what’s happening all around us. The parallels between what both Mr. Koziol and Mr. Trump have said, are virtually identical. Unfortunately, the retaliation and the attacks by the establishment for exposing the truth have also come with a hefty price tag for both gentleman.
As the 2016 presidential election cycle unfolds, it should be no surprise that Mr. Trump’s message of exposing corruption is no different than what Mr. Koziol and many parents alike have been saying all along about our nation’s domestic relations courts here in America. Our government is operating under the collectivist notion that parents no longer have a right to parent their offspring – but rather, our children belong to the state and it’s your obligation to finance such a scheme or risk going to jail.
Folks, this is serious business. Therefore, we are asking you to copy the following letter, sign it and mail it to the Trump campaign at your earliest convenience.
Your children and future generations are counting on you to take action now! Unlike other movements, we are not advocating violence, riots or political disruption. All we are asking for, is to be treated with respect by our government.
Only one candidate has the potential to bring about meaningful reform for both parents and children. That candidate is Donald Trump. Let’s help put Mr. Koziol in touch with his campaign and do our part to make America great again!

Dear Trump Campaign Representative:
I’d like to bring to your attention the name of an individual with many Trump-like similarities who was once described by the Upstate New York media as a “prominent attorney” when he first ran for congress in 2006.
He has previously appeared in the New York Times, on the news program, “60 Minutes” with Morley Safer and on CNN. His name is Leon Koziol, and like Mr. Trump, he too has come under attack by the establishment ever since he first began publicly speaking out against and exposing judicial corruption within our third branch of government. Specifically, in matters relating to the destruction of the traditional family unit in our nation’s domestic relations courts, where otherwise cooperating and unsuspecting parents are routinely forced to fight for their offspring in a barbaric process known as a “custody battle.”
The net result of these proceedings has amounted to a substantial loss of productivity in America, countless suicides, derailed plans for our children’s future – a perfect recipe for a homeland security nightmare as the ominous signs continue to be ignored. Meanwhile, the lawyers, judges, forensic experts and other occupants of Hillary Clinton’s politically correct Utopian village, comprised of the far left, establishment right, United Nations and mainstream news media, continue to play along with this charade while ensuring themselves both profits and job security within “the system” all the while parents and children suffer. At the same time, this self-serving cast of misfit characters are quick to use their political powers to quell any dissent that dares to undermine their precious egos or question their authority. After all, this is America, and “stuff” like this is only supposed to happen in third world countries – so we’re told anyways!
Any attempt to publicly expose, organize, create awareness and remedy such an insidious agenda, immediately results in the discrediting or “killing of the messenger,” for the purpose of preventing any sort of populous uprising. As such, and in the instance of Mr. Koziol, he has experienced a similar fate and mounting losses, nothing short of horrific, including his ability to practice law, protracted denials for reinstatement, an onslaught of character assignation attempts as well as the undeserved deprivation of his children after almost 10 long years of needless court controversies, despite the fact that he has NEVER been charged with or committed a single crime. Perhaps, the only thing that Mr. Koziol is guilty of, is standing up to this very same the system, which has not only financially bankrupted him, but demonized, vilified and denied him any sense of credibility in the public eye. However, given all of these obstacles, much Like Mr. Trump, he’s still standing and not taking a back seat to his countless adversaries.
Afters surviving a recent gag order and numerous attempts to suppress his First Amendment rights, Mr. Koziol continues to operate a website under the constant threat of incarceration, called LeonKoziol.Com. He has earned both a national and global following for his tireless efforts to stand up for the little guy. I firmly believe that he would be a valuable asset to the Trump campaign given his successful civil rights background. Furthermore, I also believe that he would be an influential point of contact for your Upstate New York and national organizing efforts.
Therefore, I strongly encourage you reach out to Mr. Koziol in an effort to connect with another like-minded individual who exemplifies the Trump spirit and has the same desire and willingness to make America great again! Mr. Koziol can be reached at (315) 796-4000.

MAD for TRUMP
By Dr. Leon R. Koziol
Okay so you’ve heard of MADD, Mothers Against Drunk Driving. Welcome to Moms and Dads for Trump or “MAD for Trump.” It’s a new political action group comprised of parents fed up with the abuse of moms and dads in divorce and family court. And we have good reason to be MAD at an establishment and industry which are ruining America.
You’ve heard the war stories, the families bankrupted by lawyers and judges who bleed parents and leave their children without college funds, girls and boys who will never know their real mom or dad because one or both are traumatized, marginalized or so scrutinized by court operatives that they are transformed into something we don’t recognize anymore.
It’s reached epidemic levels across these United States. Mainstream media is ignoring it, business as usual continues to our children’s detriment, and social media? “Raising awareness” from the comfort of your keyboards? Seriously? If anything, that’s causing more harm because nothing’s come of it, no one’s listening, and the villains are empowered more than ever before.
We have to take real action. As concerned parents and conscientious citizens, we have to unite and make ourselves a force to be reckoned with. Here at the Parenting Rights Institute, we’re organizing behind Donald Trump.
Presidential candidate Donald Trump you ask. Yeah that guy, because he’s the only one out there with the guts to produce long overdue reform. He’s the only hope we have to save our families and children, to restore a moral fiber to this nation which is eroding by the day.
Of course there’s that other candidate, you know the one. She’s been around a very long time and she is every part of the problem. Remember Hillary’s “Village” during the nineties, the notion that “It Takes a Village” to raise our children.
What she really means is more lawyers, more substitute parents and more costly evaluators in family court telling us how to do right, even if they never had children or failed to raise them “properly,” if there is such a standard.
Other countries tried the same sort of villages, they just had a different name for it, communism and socialism for example. Failed systems that are now making their way into this country like a new virus or incurable cancer. Even Adolph Hitler wrote about it in Mein Kampf. Just use the children he prophesized and “the people will happily give up their rights” to the state.
Isn’t that what’s happening here, or has the liberal propaganda overwhelmed you? Come on, we’re Americans, we built this country the old fashioned way. We don’t always get along but don’t make it worse for our offspring. And imagine any daily news conference with Hillary as president. Her lies are so routine that we can never know the truth or what she’s really doing especially with secret e-mails.
Putting it in another perspective, say you received a reliable tip on September 10, 2001 about a squad of terrorists set to board passenger jets the following morning. Would you spend the rest of that day warning authorities or the victims soon to enter the towers?
Quite a choice if you had it. And you know you’d be considered a fanatic yourself with either option. Just don’t hold your breath on homeland security. At least with the victims you stood a chance of saving real lives, however few you might convince even after the ’93 attack.
That analogy might seem extreme but it aptly describes what we’re doing. Most victims could not have anticipated the horrors of their divorce or custody battles, and the deaths traceable to an antiquated custody system exceed the number of parents lost on 9-11.
The problem is, there has never been a study to prove this, and that’s because of the money which this system generates for lawyers, government and power brokers. Like sheep to slaughter, parents sacrifice life’s savings here for the reason that their offspring are made the prize in a war that never seems to end
Often times that war kills off the parents. In the civil rights case, Pearce v Longo, 766 F. Supp.2d 367 (NDNY), a police investigator enraged by protection orders, confiscation of his weapons and a garnished paycheck left support court to end a divorce his own way. He committed a murder-suicide that left three children forever without a mom or dad.
The main reason this horrific event was not left to another footnote in a police blotter is the $2 million recovery by lawyers for wrongful death against the city employer. The fact that a common kitchen knife was used did not seem to matter. Neither did the igniting event in court.
The true cause behind such needless carnage is routinely suppressed, and the victims cover a full range. Even if you’re happily married or childless, you pay for it every day in our schools, workplaces and tax departments. From veterans and law enforcement to minorities and mainstream parents, this war finds you.
It certainly found Walter Scott. After stints in jail without a crime, this unarmed black father ran from a traffic cop on a support warrant. Simple solution? Just shoot him dead in the back five times. Not so much a racial issue as it was a money one, both white and black cops were charged. Those children also lost a father and the city paid a hefty sum to lawyers.
Ominously the incidents are growing. At its core, the public has been fed an overdose of propaganda behind a custody award for countless disputes involving children. Shared parenting and mediation alternatives are routinely crushed in nearly every state by influential bar associations which have cultivated this gold mine.
The establishment’s preferred framework is not so complicated despite chapter and verse. Custody is awarded to the parent who can best destroy the other in a barbaric contest reminiscent of the Roman Coliseum. Aligned family spectators cheer or cry, and the government band plays on while suicides become commonplace.
When you stop to think, it really is a barbaric process for a nation which styles itself as a civilized one. The collective challenges to our schools, communities and law enforcement are mind-boggling. The public has been duped into believing that custody wars are normal. And judges blame the parents in the end after all the lawyers are paid.
Politicians will condemn needless medical procedures that tax our health care systems. They attack an over-medicated population with costly programs even though government is its biggest drug supplier. Yet they turn a blind eye to these barbaric courts. Why are they being so protected despite overwhelming evidence of their devastation to the people served?
Enough! It’s time we took matters into our own hands and unite behind the only candidate who’s telling it the way it is. We may not support him on everything he’s saying but let’s face it, if you were a candidate, could you survive the scrutiny and twisted media stories about him?
Time’s running out my friends. I’ve been all across this great country over the past ten years seeking reforms to a trillion dollar industry. It utterly destroyed me as a consequence.

Parental Advocate, Dr. Leon Koziol, Hosting Conference Calls to Address Reform Report, Nashville Tour and Programs to Help Families in Conflict.
300,000 lawyers in California alone, more than a million nationwide and a comparable number of candidates in law school. That’s a lot of lawyers anxious to find employment. If you have an ax to grind with your ex, some score to settle for ego purposes, or you just like to fight for attention, then you make a perfect employer for a divorce or family court lawyer prepared to manufacture controversy for profit. Even if you’re not a fighter and more of a reasonable type, there is no shortage of issues and not enough money to satisfy a lawyer once you’ve hired one.
That’s just the way it is in our nation’s domestic relations courts. The deeper you get, the more foolish you become until you are likely to face bankruptcy in the end. Once they get you in the door, the system makes you think it’s all for your children’s “best interests,” but those same children may easily lose the funds for a good college education. Worse yet, you may have to start all over again building a new life, a new savings account and a logical explanation for sacrificing so much for so little.
That’s why parental advocate, Dr. Leon Koziol, has been crusading for reform. On March 1, 2015, he released an alarming report describing the complexities of today’s domestic relations courts and the vast harm they are causing to our families, moral fiber and productivity in the workplace. On March 18, 2015, he will begin a promotional tour in Nashville regarding his reform efforts. Already the responses have been coming in for answers to the many problems faced by victims in these courts. To address them, he will be sponsoring a series of conference calls beginning on Monday, March 16, 2015 at 7 pm EST, and continuing weekly thereafter every Monday at 7pm EST. The following topics will be featured for those wishing to participate at no cost:
- Reform report and six part action plan;
- Nashville promotional tour;
- Court Avoidance Programs;
- Mediation alternatives to costly litigation;
- Drafting, book editing and court accountability projects.
If you have an issue or concern which fits in one or more of these categories, you are welcome to participate in this valuable conference. However to assure conformity with our five-part agenda, we ask all interested persons to e-mail Dr. Koziol beforehand at email@example.com. Tell us a bit about yourself and your issues. We will then respond with the contact number and related information regarding this conference. We have been in contact with high profile agents, chambers of commerce and public interest groups regarding this nationwide reform effort. We hope to elicit your financial contributions and participant support. We will close with another relevant excerpt from Dr. Koziol’s public initiative report and funding request:
“As a general observation, industrialists sell products, government sells services, businesses sell both, doctors sell advice and cures, psychiatrists sell therapy and medications, and lawyers sell controversies and promises. Of all these “stocks in trade” the last is most counter-productive to families. They do not belong in a forum created to protect our children. And when government makes it profitable for their participants to incite controversy, it is the worst kind of evil. Minor disputes erupt into major ones with the words of an unscrupulous lawyer adept at abusing the system for fee generating purposes. In the end, a protracted court battle yields irrevocable harm.
Unfortunately the laws are drafted to cultivate, encourage and even incentivize conflict in these courts. The very structure for resolution is built upon artificially induced controversy and an unsupported foundation for distributing childrearing authority between superior and inferior parents. Shared parenting initiatives have failed time and again in states all across America due to a universal failure to invalidate the archaic system which is being protected. Many never even make it the floors of our state legislatures. A major objective of this action plan, therefore, is to debunk the custody myth through public awareness of its untold detriments.
The state’s seizure of parenting rights enables lawyers to examine every aspect of a family’s private life in a public courtroom. Once the financial information is extracted, they are able to determine the extent of liquid assets available from the combatants for fee generating purposes. Child interests provide fertile ground for endless disputes, and settlement efforts are often promoted only when the money runs out… “
