I was in Manhattan this past week lobbying for a federal investigation of family court corruption, I attended a political panel discussion at New York University School of Law headed by George Stefanopoulos with a New York Times journalist, New York Post editor and former federal prosecutor Preet Bharara as his guest commentators. My book, Satan’s Docket, was hand delivered by a professor to Mr. Stefanopoulos and another copy delivered to Mr. Bharara.
While there, I received invites to a pair of radio programs in upstate New York. The first came from a talented and veteran newspaper reporter, Rocco LaDuca, who recently left his position as a legislative assistant for New York Senator Joseph Griffo to head a talk show known as Talk of the Town, WUTQ, 100.7 FM. It will be aired on Wednesday, November 15, 2017 at 8:30 a.m. If it is anything like the ones I once attended for his competitors, it should be very exciting.
Rocco covered many of my high profile cases and campaigns for public office, and he will be the first to answer the many questions raised in central New York regarding my absence from law and politics since my conscientious stand against my profession ten years ago. Indeed he is among several footnotes in my book which he is now anxious to read prior to the show.
His invite was inspired by my recent series of full page news advertisements exposing corruption in a family judge race. The write-in votes which I lobbied for were never published but I know they were sizeable. I will discover the number now that I have returned to my home town. I agreed to come on to Mr. DeLuca’s program because my book campaign is only beginning.
The second invite came from the owner of White Lake Inn to do another book signing at the end of a popular radio program known as Gomez and Lisa. That show will be conducted on site. You can listen to all the excitement there next Saturday, November 18, 2017 beginning at 10 a.m. on WOUR, 96.9 on the Utica, New York AM radio dial. If you would like me to speak before your group or program, call me direct at (315) 796-4000.
According to this week’s Associated Press, hundreds of people marched in the streets of Warsaw, Poland “to honor a man who set himself on fire to protest policies by Poland’s ruling (political) party.” He was protesting a destruction of the rule of law and democracy in the country. Sounds a lot like our government bureaucracy in Washington which is destroying parental liberties through the rule of money and taxation.
The article goes on to report that this human rights hero, Piotr Szczesny, a 54 year old chemist, “set himself on fire on Oct. 19 and died more than a week later… (leaving) a letter explaining that he was protesting a government (that was) limiting civil liberties, violating the constitution and making Poland an object of ridicule internationally.”
Wow! This Szczesny guy could be living here in America and making the same statement about our bureaucratic liberals, their incessant attacks on our duly elected president, and what they are doing in Washington to take away our human rights. Their socialist manifesto is the only form of free speech allowed in this country. Any other opinion will be suppressed, censored and discredited in the most ruthless manner.
Thomas Ball was a 58 year old American father whose family roots trace back to Mary Ball, the mother of George Washington (whose statues may soon be torn down by these same fanatic leftists). On June 15, 2011, he sat down quietly on the steps of a New Hampshire family court to protest child control practices which deprived him of contact with his offspring. He poured gas over his head, lit himself up and died almost instantly.
There were no street protests, no court reforms, no international news coverage, indeed this human holocaust barely made the Boston Globe. They merely washed his ashes into the sewer. Granted, he left a manifesto of his own urging people to firebomb these courts, but the constitutional violations he cited have only grown worse in our nation’s family courts (supported by federal Title IV-D funding).
Everyone is then aghast at the growing forms of domestic violence and mass murders occurring across the country, our most recent horrific event this past Sunday in a church no less. When citizens are deprived fair and just treatment in our courts of law, they will take their grievances to the streets, securing their own forms of justice. Until meaningful reforms occur in these “constitution-free” tribunals, that violence will only grow. There is no escaping it.
It is a rule of last resort when a good parent is turned evil in the face of a debtor prison for a parenting tax which has no accountability. Family courts hide this reality with propaganda such as “child support” and “custody awards.” To make this lucrative system work, one parent has to be marginalized, alienated or outright removed from his or her children’s lives. “Noncustodial parents” are actually paying for government’s seizure of their own offspring.
Shared parenting legislation is routinely crushed because it generates no revenue from our federal government and much less family controversy for lawyers to exploit. You will find no accountability from a self-regulating court system or investigative reporting because the rule of money controls our media through advertising and gutter politics have eclipsed common sense and human rights, leaving confused victims to self-help remedies.
This giant farce prompted me to pay for advertisements behind a write-in candidate, a sort of “none-of-the-above” protest against not only the perpetrators of this sick anti-family system but the selection process which leaves us with no real choices. Although I have received resounding support (as a former city corporation counsel and county executive candidate), it is unlikely that voters will make the quick trip and write in a preference (even though voting is free of charge).
There were only two ads in a single newspaper making the write-in suggestion, no signs, radio or television commercials. And there was no request to vote for me in particular. Hence no great expectations exist because there has never been a write-in candidate who made the voting radar here. But we can make a statement for reform and that depends on the victims taking action for their own sake.
As Adolph Hitler once said in Mein Kampf, if you can convince the people that the state is looking out for their children, they will “happily” give up their rights. Kindly share this message, and as always, feel free to contact me at our office at (315) 380-3420 or my cell at (315) 796-4000. I will be in Manhattan again this week lobbying for a federal investigation of my ordeal, other horrific cases and family courts generally, but I will get back to as many callers that I can.
ELECTION DAY ADDENDUM
And if you don’t think there are a lot of angry moms and dads out there, here is one of many write-in votes being committed to me today. This one has no name, caller ID or presence on any of my contact lists. But to write me in with capital letters and a photo taken at the voting booth for proof, I have to feel good about it despite the overwhelming odds.
This addition to today’s post comes at 3:35 pm and election district records will show that I have not voted yet. I’m not sure how many of these write-ins they will recognize because I have no poll monitors, but it’s nice to see the boldness in commitment to my reform message.
Well we got more good news today. After a two month review process, a major west coast publisher notified me today of its interest in Satan’s Docket. Last month a New York news organization requested the name of its publisher for a possible documentary.
Sales continue despite a limited local publisher. 300 copies are out and the book has yet to reach the shelves of bookstores although a book signing at Barnes and Nobles is being arranged. 20 copies were sold on the night of its release in local businesses, and on-line sales are still coming in.
In another twist, a book was apparently sold to my custody judge, Dan “Kangaroo” King, the one who disqualified himself last year after taking my daughters from me. He did so within three months of my testimony before the Moreland Commission on Public Corruption.
There, at Pace University in Manhattan, I exposed fictional college degrees which Dan King used to force $45,500 in tax free support payments in one year alone without so much as a “thank you” from my daughters. I have been removed from their lives for the four years since. That testimony was published on government sites and remains on-line.
At the same time we have been promoting this book with full page advertisements. This early release process was undertaken when candidates for a family judge race in upstate New York were failing to address the horrendous picture in today’s courts. Tomorrow’s edition will be the best one yet. Check it out on-line or at the stores and coffee shops, Sunday, November 5, 2017 edition of the (Utica, New York) Observer Dispatch.
I know this book is having profound impacts because I get encouragements and compliments from a wide range of strangers who have approached me in the community since this process got started. They include bank patrons, police officers, working moms, political types and even divorce lawyers. I am also getting requests for lawyer referrals and judge evaluations. Check it all out tomorrow and get your book copy at www.parentingrightsinstitute.com.
More ominous proof of its impact occurred when I was nearly run over by a shiny black Cadillac while crossing a street to my regular Friday fish fry. It was witnessed by a restaurant manager, and I am fairly certain of the identity of the driver as an investigation continues. Finally, as always, check out the extraordinary services we offer. We are not publicly funded and rely on your donations to continue our vital work. Kindly share this message.
On Sunday, October 15, 2017 between 5 and 8 pm, I will be sponsoring a Community Chat regarding term limits, strategies for making all three branches of government more accountable, and Book Signings for Satan’s Docket . It will occur at my home located at 1336 Graffenburg Road; New Hartford, New York (second left turn off Sherman Drive across from MVCC campus).
Traditionally this website has focused on parental rights and court corruption. As a civil rights advocate and parental consultant, my work has taken me everywhere from Hawaii to Paris. It has resulted in valuable information which can benefit moms, dads and families. You can get it at no charge by simply scrolling down this blog site. You will also find our professional services and programs by clicking onto the pages at the top.
This site, Leon Koziol.com, will now be expanding to cover general topics in the news locally and across the country. You are welcome to contribute your opinions or news tips, confidentially if necessary, at any time. We are presently a small secondary news outlet committed to exposing the issues which mainstream media are suppressing or avoiding. Think of us as a government watchdog enterprise.
Our professional services and programs focused on parental rights and court reform will now be transferred to our new site, Parenting Rights Institute. America’s “Judicial Watch” of the divorce industry, it can now be accessed at http://www.parentingrightsinstitute.com. That entity, founded by me in 2010, was recently purchased by an investor in Manhattan to expand the good work we do for those left behind by our nation’s domestic courts.
Although the manuscript for my new book, Satan’s Docket, was completed only last month, I have decided on an early release due to the Family Judge race in Oneida County (central) New York. I did this because election discourse remains devoid of the real issues confronting the litigants needlessly hauled into these courts for profit. Book store purchases will not be available until well after election day.
A half page advertisement explains this at page 3B of the October 5, 2017 edition of the (Utica) Observer Dispatch and its current on-line version. Another advertisement will appear on Thursday October 12th and a further publication will come in the Sunday edition (October 15). With a copy of any ad or mention of the on-line versions, you will get a $10 discount off the $30 price during any book signing. If you cannot make it, you can purchase a copy on the Satan’s Docket Page of the Parenting Rights Institute website, www.parentingrightsinstitute.com.
Come and share your ideas about improving the delivery of government services or your ordeals as a citizen, litigant or parent. You will learn a lot from this book and it could save you many thousands of dollars in lawyer fees and suffering . It explains how these courts truly work, how they are structured to bankrupt entire families and businesses, and how they can work against the so-called “best interests” of our children.
Today more than ever, it is crucial for all Americans to take action against an epidemic which features escalating violence, immorality and crime everywhere. For additional info and directions, call me personally at (315) 796-4000.
