Corona Chronicles #16: What will the “New Normal” look like after coronavirus? Where do religious leaders stand on court reform?

Earlier today, I referenced a front page New York Times article that finally exposed Governor Andrew Cuomo and Mayor Bill DeBlasio for their gross mis-handling of the coronavirus epicenter. That article corroborated our recent posts in a series I call “Corona Chronicles.”

We need a similar story upstate as we look to the future, what they’re calling the “New Normal.” Of the countless followers I accumulated on four sites over the past ten years, nearly all are focused on corruption, parent alienation or Title IV-D court funding abuses.

But will anything change? Will it be business as usual at the other end of the curve? The answer may lie in what we do now while under a mass lock-down. It is critical to join in a master plan of sorts which transforms our nation’s family courts into a conciliatory environment.

Unfortunately, the public retains a higher regard for judges than they do lawyers or politicians, making such reform all but impossible given the lucrative nature of the “Old Normal” custody system. To debunk that myth, I have reported or acted on serious judge misconduct.

So, for example, on April 3, 2020, the New York Post featured an article regarding a “Long Island judge who copped to stealing dirty undies from the home of a female neighbor… resigned from the bench and has been stripped of his law license.” Here is an excerpt:

Long Island judge pleads guilty to raiding neighbor’s dirty panties

Suffolk County District Judge Robert Cicale pleaded guilty in September to second-degree attempted burglary, a felony, for breaking into the home of a 23-year-old woman who used to be the pervy judge’s intern on separate occasions and stealing panties from her laundry hamper.

The judicial panty-bandit was arrested in March 2018 as he was leaving the woman’s house — with his pockets stuffed full of her skivvies.

Cicale was sentenced to probation in November and was required to register as a sex offender.

The judge was suspended without pay following his arrest — but inexplicably held onto his position on the bench, which prevented local officials from holding an election to replace him.

Cicale finally agreed on March 31 to resign, according to documents released Friday by the state Commission on Judicial Conduct. His term was set to end on Dec. 31, though the New York Court of Appeals — the state’s highest court — could have ordered his removal prior to that date.

“The public cannot respect and the electorate cannot replace a judge who pleads guilty to a felony but holds on to office, despite being suspended without pay,” commission Administrator Robert Tembeckjian said in a news release.

Judicial conduct rules compel the highest standards of conduct both on and off the bench. Yet this judge did not resign or exhibit genuine remorse from the time of his arrest. He is far from alone in that regard. My child custody judge, Bryan Hedges, had to be permanently removed by New York’s high court when it appeared that he would seek re-election after admitting to sexual abuse of his handicapped five year old niece.

Throughout this site, http://www.leonkoziol.com, you will find one example after another of judges from the top down who were sent to federal prison, convicted of bribes and even a racist judge making violent threats from the bench who was allowed to stay in office (Utica City Judge Gerald Popeo assigned to my family court case).

On our bi-weekly conference calls, the examples keep coming in from around the country. We recently changed these calls from planning sessions for our annual march and lobby initiative in Washington to coping sessions while being denied child contact during home quarantine. I continue to give hope where I can.

One of our faithful participants, Dr. Anthony Pappas, a finance professor at St. Johns University, has insisted that we get religious organizations involved, making parallels to those who supported Dr. Martin Luther King. I have joined him at family rights conferences at the United Nations and Holy See Mission. He has written the Pope, fortunate to get a formal reply of encouragement, and is asking you to do the same:

Please ask for help from Pope Francis. A one-ounce letter by global first-class costs $1.20. The address is: His Holiness, Pope Francis; Apostolic Palace; VATICAN CITY. Ask him to take a leadership role in this time of crisis and support our efforts to reform these courts.

Another returning participant, Dr Martha Link, a psychologist, has asked us to be more aggressive in our exposures of judicial misconduct and lawyer over-billing practices. She has given us useful information. You are welcome to join every Monday and Thursday, 7pm ET. Call (605) 313-4427. Access code is 583326.

President Trump: “I know parents who don’t love their children.” Reply: “I know parents who love their children but are alienated by federally funded judges.”

The above video, entitled “Parents Under Siege” is the first of a series used to promote our Parent March on Washington, subtitled: The Lawyer Epidemic.

By Dr. Leon Koziol

Parenting Rights Institute

At a campaign rally in North Carolina on Monday, President Trump twice told a crowd of supporters that he “knows many parents who don’t love their children very much,” see Haberman & Baker, At Rally, Trump Takes Aim at Democrats Amid Reshuffling of Primary Field, NY Times, March 3, 2020 edition, pg. A-17.

It was a statement I heard myself, and it remains unclear what was meant by it or why it was said. However, it should inspire parents victimized by our divorce and family courts to rally against a funding scheme that rewards these courts by the number of parents they can alienate from their children.

That shocking truth has been suppressed for decades due to the lucrative benefits that Title IV-D of the Social Security Act brings to lawyers, service providers and family judges. It is the truth behind a percentage of parents who seemingly “don’t love their children,” but are prevented from doing so by this funding scheme.

Lawyers “who don’t love ethics very much” may know little about how this funding scheme harms clients. But they do know from early financial statements in any divorce or support proceeding how much is available to pay for their fees. Once a parent is sucked into this court system, it’s a downward spiral. Lawyers incite needless conflict to keep the money flowing.

These are not genuine lawyers. They’re licensed con-artists preying on your emotions. They could care less about your children, mine or even their own given the precedent they set in these courts. Then, in an ultimate hypocrisy, they continue to maintain that they are bankrupting entire families and raiding college funds for “the best interests of our children.”

The judges (more accurately lawyers on the bench) are equally at fault in this custody gold mine. Financial incentives make them biased. They overlook and even promote the legalized robberies and kidnapping of parent-child relationships because they are rewarded by federal funds (Title IV-D performance grants) based on the number of “custodial parents” they can create.

Such funds are diminished whenever two parents can get along and need no “custody” titles. They need no government interference or supervision. This is why shared parenting laws are opposed by special interests and bar associations (so-called “professional” service providers who feed off the custody gold mine). That is also why mediation and settlement are also thwarted.

This category of moms and dads love their children beyond imagination. They will fight to the end to protect them, and that is exactly what these lawyers “love” to hear in consultations. They are there to test parents on how much money and assets they are willing to part with for the “best interests” of their children.

After 20 years as a proven attorney another 10 years as a victim, I have seen the carnage time and again. It’s all about the money. “Best interests” propaganda detracts from an epidemic no differently than tobacco, drug and food advertisements do. The child industry is now a humanitarian crisis with daily suicides, financial ruin and premature deaths. The difference here is that it’s being suppressed by the courts which profit from it.

Our federal courts may be more to blame. They were created for the very purpose of protecting our federal rights. But a look at the record shows the judges there abandoning their duties (despite life terms) to protect their state court colleagues instead. Any whistle blower lawyer or victimized parent who seeks reform and justice is targeted and destroyed no differently than the regimes our military is sent overseas to fight.

None of this will change until we parents make a profound public statement in Washington. A rare opportunity to do so now awaits you on May 27-29, 2020 when the Parenting Rights Institute will sponsor its Annual Parent March and Conference. We begin with an orientation session will occur at the Congressional Ballroom of the Holiday Inn Capitol at 7 pm on May 27.

At that session we will be preparing for our lobby day in Congress the next day. At 7 pm on May 28, 2020, we will sponsor expert speakers at the same location. This is a ticketed event. At Noon on Friday, May 29, 2020, we will assemble at Lafayette Square Park at the White House to begin our march under police escort down Pennsylvania Avenue to the Supreme Court.

Each Thursday at 7pm EST we are hosting nationwide conference calls to grow numbers for this event. These calls are not designed for war stories, therapy, legal advice or fringe ideas. We know what we are doing and will not tolerate moles and trolls who contaminate such efforts because they benefit from the system. This is a proven event for the sake of all victims.

If you would like to be a part of these calls or our 3-day event, call our office at (315) 380-3420 or e-mail me directly at leonkoziol@gmail.com.

President Trump has been kept in the dark on this “judicial swamp” and may be our only hope to clean up the corruption. But like former Judiciary Chairman, Senator Chuck Grassley stated at a recent Whistle blower Conference, “You can’t fix something if you don’t know its broken, that’s just common sense.” Let us now bring “common sense” to Washington.

 

 

 

 

 

Coronavirus Whistleblower Ignored in China Like Family Court Whistleblower is being Ignored Here

By Dr. Leon Koziol

Parenting Rights Institute

For over a decade I have been researching, investigating and reporting on a growing epidemic in America’s divorce and family courts. My experience as a civil rights attorney and victimized parent made me ideally qualified to expose this epidemic. It also made me a judicial whistle blower with no legal protection.

Accordingly, the state was able to retaliate with impunity, seizing my income capacities, children, diverse liberties and unblemished credible reputation. It was all designed to convince the public that there was no epidemic, parent alienation syndrome (PAS) was a fiction, and lawyer profits were justified.

This reaction can scarcely be distinguished from the targeting of Dr. Li Wenliang, the whistleblower who warned of the existence and spread of the coronavirus. He was isolated, ridiculed and discredited by the Chinese government in a similar manner.

Sadly Dr. Wenliang made the ultimate sacrifice when he recently succumbed to the virus that he warned about. Like me as a victimized parent, he was the victim of a growing epidemic. And I was nearly killed by it.

This site, Leon Koziol.com, is filled with proof of this. For example, I sponsored the Parent March on Washington, a 3-day event that featured parental advocates and court reformers delivering my report to all members of Congress.

That report was entitled, A Federal Funded Epidemic: Vital Report Justifying a Federal Investigation of Human Rights Abuses in Divorce and Family Courts. It was completed and delivered long before anyone even knew about the coronavirus.

However, like Dr. Wenliang’s reports, it was ignored, censored and threatened ultimately by a shoot on sight threat of a traffic cop purporting to enforce an unlawful child support warrant. Follow-up lobbying efforts have fallen on deaf ears. Consequently the carnage will grow in the coming months.

In my report, I cited only a few prominent examples of this carnage, i.e. at pp. 10-11:

In countless family court cases, records are falsified and misconduct is concealed or disregarded to protect judicial reputation. Judges are widely deemed to be beyond reproach. Tragedies have there resulted from oversight failures and a lack of criminal prosecutions involving human rights violations under federal law such as the one cited above. Four cases highlight the horrific consequences to parents, veterans, families and law enforcement over the past decade: 

On September 28, 2009, police Investigator Joseph Longo was ordered to pay $1,800 in monthly child support. He answered the same day with a murder- suicide leaving four children without parents. Even the district attorney could not predict this. A $2 million recovery was based on a zone of danger created by city officials as opposed to family court, Pearce v Longo, 766 F. Supp. 2d 367 (2011) LaDuca, Rage built Longo to murder-suicide, Observer Dispatch, 12/30/09. 

On June 15, 2011, a father and war veteran, Thomas Ball, burned himself alive on the steps of a family court to protest years of abuse and separation from his children. It stemmed from a single incident of slapping his daughter, and he left behind a manifesto on how to firebomb courts. Even after such a horrific death, the ex-wife stubbornly defended herself by complaining that her children’s dad failed to comply with court counselling. This is how demented the process has become, see Mark Arsenault, Dad leaves clues to his desperation, Boston Globe, July 10, 2011. 

On April 4, 2015, Walter Scott, an unarmed father was shot dead five times in the back by a traffic cop while fleeing a support warrant. The shocking murder was videoed by a concealed bystander. Contrary to national hype focused on racism, the victim’s funeral pastor blamed it on draconian child support confinements. Many concluded that the state was now killing for money given the revolving door outcomes. In vain, two reporters warned of this trend, see Robles and Dewan, Skip child support. Go to jail. Lose job. Repeat. New York Times, 4/15/15 at pg. 1.       

On July 30, 2018, a physical therapist with a practice in Manhattan fatally shot his ex-wife, their 6-year old son and current wife in his Astoria (Queens) home. It became the final edict in a protracted custody battle fueled by judicial war games. After a failed Go-Fund-Me effort to pay his lawyer fees, in a page titled “Child Kidnapping,” the abused dad, James Shield, explained, “I had the perfect life a few years ago but it has spiraled out of control,” Moore, Musemeci and Sheehy, Custody battle led dad to family murder suicide, New York Post, July 31, 2018. 

Less transparent are the countless cases swarming beneath these four which can easily explode. Their cause is wrongfully blamed on the parents. The public is duped into believing that an adversarial process yields truth and justice in our courts. That may be true in other forms of litigation, but when children are taken hostage by untethered lawyers, the opposite is true here. Parents commit perjury on an artificial premise that they are protecting their offspring. Sparks convert to forest fires, children emulate the dysfunction, and the perpetrators profit. 

Join us and spread the word regarding upcoming events so that this epidemic can finally be addressed.

To the hundred whistleblowers at Parent March on Washington: You have been given a moral imperative to contact Congressman Adam Schiff. Ask why he ignored our Whistleblower Report delivered to Congress on May 2nd?

Open Hearing with Acting Director of National Intelligence on Whistleblower Complaint against Donald Trump for impeachment purposes

September 26, 2019

IMG_1165
A small portion of congressional office cards retained by those participating in our Parent March on Washington, May 1-3, 2019, who delivered our Judicial Whistleblower report to all members of Congress during Lobby Day, May 2, 2019.

 

By Dr. Leon Koziol

Parenting Rights Institute

 

It’s an outrage! This past week, House Intelligence Committee Chairman Adam Schiff went on a crusade to protect whistleblowers. According to a slew of righteous public statements, he condemned President Donald Trump and the Intelligence Community for failing to submit a whistleblower report to Congress in a timely fashion.

That report had already been found to be a politically biased concoction authored by a person who had not even been a part of the events he was complaining about, namely, an alleged attempt by Trump to influence a Ukraine president to investigate Joe Biden’s son in his country.

The Justice Department had already investigated that report and found it to lack merit. But Chairman Schiff jumped at the opportunity to praise the whistleblower for impeachment purposes prior to receiving that report. President Trump, preoccupied at a United Nations Conference, promised it to him the next day.

When the actual report proved dubious, Schiff began back-pedaling, even mimicking Trump in a made-up version of events that was woefully short of Alec Baldwin’s talent. Schiff took even more heat on his re-written version of the facts. This is how desperate and divided our leaders have become in Washington.

But that’s only the background and not the purpose for this post. Chairman Schiff focused on the right of all whistleblowers, no matter his position or accuracy, to reach Congress with their reports. His speeches were profound but his sincerity was non-existent given the hundred whistleblowers who converged on Washington for our Parent March on Washington this past May.

Parents from all over the country helped put together a lobby packet on May 1st to deliver to every member of Congress the next day. It featured a Judicial Whistleblower report entitled:

“Federal Funded Epidemic: Vital Report Justifying a Federal Investigation of Human Rights Abuses in Divorce and Family Courts.”

An entire section of that report was devoted to judicial whistleblower protection. I personally headed a contingent from New York which met with key staffers in the conference room of Senate Leader Chuck Schumer on May 2nd. It included a doctor, university professor and experts in the field of court reform. We were promised a reply to the reports we delivered that day.

I delivered an earlier one directly to Senate Judiciary Committee Chair Lindsay Graham and discussed it with him outside his committee hearing room. Other whistleblowers did the same with their own disclosures with their own representatives. Yet not a single member or staffer has replied to this day.

So what do we conclude from all this? Is Chairman Schiff a fraud? Is the call for whistleblower protection on the part of these same members of Congress a giant hypocrisy? Is political narrative the standard for deciding which Americans are important to our representatives?

The 500-plus reports we delivered to every office of Congress, backed by a march with police escort the next day down Pennsylvania Avenue, provided an overwhelming statement to Congress. Indeed you could not get more “in-your-face” than that from a true grass-roots perspective.

We weren’t backed by any political party, special interest or impeachment agenda. We were there to report an epidemic caused by the disregard of crisis-level issues such as parental alienation, abuse of federal funds and court induced suicides.

Since our march, events have occurred which have bolstered our cause and we must act on them or lose the momentum. On August 7, 2019, I filed a precedent-seeking case in New York Supreme Court. Two weeks later, New York’s top attorney, Attorney General Letitia James, moved my case to federal court.

Three weeks after that, a federal appeals court handed down a precedent decision which gave a green light to a father to challenge abusive child support enforcement tactics that were violating federal law. I have reviewed that case to conclude that it supports my case in a more profound way. I will report on it soon.

Now comes an opportunity to turn our efforts into results by contacting members of Congress to shed light on the Schiff Hypocrissy. Now you have a profound duty, certainly within your personal ability at home to accomplish, by calling on Schiff and his colleagues to make good their rhetoric by holding a hearing on our reports.

Our time is now. Don’t squander it with apathy or excuses. We all talked the talk in Washington. Now it’s time to walk the walk. Why did our representatives ignore one of the most pressing issues of our day that we carried to their very doorsteps? Do your part now while time allows, contact the media, spread the word or call us at PRI office (315) 380-3420.

Parent Advocate Dr. Leon Koziol replies to Terrence Williams and Congressman Walsh regarding “Dead Beat Dads”

 

This video is being made viral to end the use of gender slurs such as “dead beat dads.” That slur was used repeatedly by social media comedian Terrence Williams in a recent attack on Congressman Joe Walsh, another liberal politician promoting a candidacy for president. The threats, violent displays and vulgar insults have set new lows in American politics.

Here Parenting Rights Institute Director and civil rights advocate, Dr. Leon Koziol commends the entertainer, but calls on him, Congressman Joe Walsh and President Donald Trump to make parents great again. After referencing our Parent March on Washington this past May, he asks the three to help end debtor prisons and human rights violations in our nation’s divorce and family courts.

Help us spread the word with this video.

Investigative Journalist Exposes Parental Alienation

Today we are featuring a story that was sent to us from one of our many readers of this website. The sender requested that we share his story.

Our message is to NEVER give up!

Hello Mr Koziol,

My name is William Brown. I had reached out to you a few times in the past, particularly regarding the Parent March in Washington.

I deeply appreciate the work you have done and momentum that is is taking place as a result. 

I am a victim of Parental Alienation, a problem of which you are very familiar. Below is an article that highlights my case. 

It was written by an investigative journalist, Vicke Corell-Rick, who has conducted much research and interviewing within Berks County Pennsylvania family Court system and Family devices system finding it to be extremely corrupt and destroying families, parent and children’s lives. Her work continues to speak for itself. 

She took the time to review my evidence and posted her findings at this site below-stating that:

PA Families Separated by the Government: Parent Alienation Fault of Berks County Children and Youth Services

Though I have been burdened by the trauma of it all, your platform has helped restore hope that justice will be done. 

I would deeply appreciate your help to share my story. There are more important details to share. Particularly, having a court order dated March 2009 stating reunification of father and child – which never happened.

I will never forget .. on a Tuesday Feb 19 visitation before our weekend visitation, we went out to Ross and bought her a fancy black dress to attended her friend’s sweet sixteen party on the upcoming Saturday and made other plans there after, both excited. I took her to school that Wednesday morning Feb 21, which she later that eve sent me text to say “I Love you”. When I went to pick her up on that Friday morning per custody order (school was cancelled due to snow).  That never happened. She and I never saw each other since to date.

I would appreciate your help and look forward to your response.

Sincerely

William

How Power Corrupts Those in Family Court (A Must See Video)

Administrator’s note:

While Dr. Koziol continues to work on a number of important projects, today we will feature a video on court corruption that was produced by Larry DeMarco, the producer of the parent march on Washington docushort. The video is described below:

“In this video, we will discuss Phil Zombardo’s Ted Talk, “The Psychology of Evil,” and the direct application of his research to America’s judiciary (particularly family Court). Zombardo also proposes a new definition of a hero – ordinary people fighting for positive social change, and we will also suggest solutions for court reform and the need to for all citizens to raise awareness and support these reform measures.”

Parental Alienation Documentary (Full Film)

Administrator’s note:

While Dr. Koziol is busy working on a number of projects, this site will be featuring a series of videos on the subject of parental alienation which can be largely attributed to Federal incentive performance grants such as Title IV-D of the Social Security Act. Such grants can have just the opposite effect on parent-child relationships by financially rewarding or incentivizing our third branch of government – The Judiciary. In exchange for these grants, the Courts are undoubtedly compelled by money driven interests to render decisions that often promote parental divisiveness over unification, especially at a time when when the later is needed most.

As a fellow victim and targeted parent myself, I often have to stop and ponder how such injustices continue to go unchecked despite so-called equality for all?

Is this really in the best interest of our children or a clever disguise? A closer look at such Federal incentive funding reveals that individual State participation is voluntary and without these grant monies, substantial budget shortfalls would otherwise exist.

Reform is long overdue. The purpose of these videos is to create greater awareness of this topic and the harmful impact it’s having upon innocent children including the greater overall impact upon society for future generations to come.

Thank you Dr. Koziol for all of your hard work, effort and continuous sacrifices to protect our children and expose the “root cause” that’s destroying our great Nation from within.
