While the Politicians were Impeaching…

This 1-second video was taken north of Times Square, not far from Trump Tower on Wednesday, December 18, 2019. It was taken around 6 pm as politicians were wrapping up their day long testimony for a vote on the impeachment of President Donald Trump. 

Curious as to the unique culture surrounding homeless people, I monitored events to learn that the man in red was visiting fellow homeless victims to assure that they had sufficient protection for the night against the single digit snow squalls which I personally fought en route to my hotel. The forecast was a low of 15 overnight.

The guy in red had just delivered some additional cardboard bedding for the man buried under those blankets on the ground. I overheard that guy tell him that he would return to sleep on his other side as soon as he checked on others nearby.

This photo shows a man buried under blankets beneath the marquis of a worship center in Hell’s Kitchen just west of Times Square. While he was fighting to stay alive on the sidewalks of Congressman Jerry Nadler’s district, Jerry was preoccupied with impeachment as Chairman of the House Judiciary Committee.

It was a cold, bright sunny day on Wednesday, December 18, 2019 as I drove down the New York Thruway on another assignment to uncover court corruption in Manhattan. A one hour traffic jam at the George Washington bridge made me late for my appointment. Six lanes at the New Jersey side toll booths narrowed to a single lane on the bridge due to vast stretches of ice being removed by construction crews on its south span.

I had already spent travel hours listening to testimony of congress members regarding the impeachment of Donald Trump which was approved later in the evening. Initially I was impressed with most of the statements including those with which I disagreed. However, even as a former office holder and trial attorney, I soon found myself anxious to switch my radio dial to something more interesting, like latino music which I do not get upstate.

That’s how predictable the testimony became, such that the traffic jams I so detest were becoming tolerable. The many reserved and yielded time for glory speeches could not be more boorish. If it was a Democrat, Trump was a treasonous villain compared to the likes of Benedict Arnold. And if it was a Republican, “colleagues across the aisle” were history’s most profound hypocrites, the likes of which would make Alexander Hamilton turn over in his grave.

In the end, the lofty presentations turned cold and grey as the weather was becoming as I finally reached midtown. They were entirely connected to party loyalty and not the gravity of events that would further divide our nation. So partisan were these representatives that the process lost its luster. There was no merit or genuine principle behind any of it. Whatever respect I had for this impeachment process, it was tortured by politicians focused on self-advancement.

Congressman Jerry Nadler represents the 10th District of New York. His district is the second smallest in the nation and one of the most gerrymandered ones on the planet. It stretches from Central Park down along a west side strip of Manhattan deep into the heart of Brooklyn. Obviously this district was carved out for Jerry’s re-election prospects and not for any constituent benefit in such diverse, chopped-up neighborhoods.

Jerry was the “gentleman from New York” who dominated the hearing as Chairman of the House Judiciary Committee. I must have counted at least four times when he was recognized in a single hour, yielding time to select Democrat colleagues to impress the few outsiders who bothered to hear any of it. I was particularly offended because I visited Nadler’s office with his constituents during the lobby (middle) day of our Parent March on Washington (May 1-3, 2019).

I had been to Washington many times lobbying for court reforms and a federal investigation of Title IV-D funding abuses which are needlessly separating parents legally residing here from their children. Such abuses are causing veteran suicides and aggravated domestic violence, but because of the lucrative nature of this funding scheme in America’s family courts, you will not hear any lofty speeches from these same members of Congress supporting our requests.

Indeed, not a single member or staff in Congress responded to our reports and march down Pennsylvania Avenue under police escort. After a packed meeting in the conference room of Senate Minority Leader Chuck Schumer in which we were promised a reply, none has materialized even after follow-up visits and calls. This is how obsessed he and other Democrat colleagues have become with the impeachment agenda which began shortly after the 2016 election of Donald Trump.

Meanwhile the people and constituents are literally left “out in the cold” based on the many homeless people in Nadler’s congressional district that were taking cover from deadly cold and snow squalls on the day of impeachment. They could also be found only blocks away from that district at Trump Tower on the other side of Central Park. To hear these epic hypocrites recite their “oaths of office” repeatedly during the same day hearings made me cringe given their violations of those oaths among the sidewalks of Manhattan and the family court victims of America.

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

IMG_E1249

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

By Dr. Leon Koziol

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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.

More Good News: The Parent March on Washington will become a documentary

 

By Dr. Leon Koziol

Parenting Rights Institute

In only a matter of weeks, the vision of a powerful reform statement in our nation’s capital is becoming reality. Promoted as the Parent March on Washington, now there is more incentive for victimized parents to join us. All the divorce and family court ordeals presented at the speakers events will be consolidated into a video documentary. When completed at a later date, it will be published everywhere and submitted to all members of Congress.

This is a crucial development because your stories will now be “eternalized” as the producer described it. Collectively they will become a powerful statement lasting well beyond our three-day event. This documentary is being financed by a Philadelphia lawyer (and former judge candidate) based on his reading of our recent report “Federal Funded Epidemic” and the videos published on this site, http://www.leonkoziol.com.

Only the ordeals of those who come to this March will be included. There are two speaking events for this purpose. On May 2, 2019 at 7 pm, in the Congressional Ballroom of the Holiday Inn Capitol, 550 C Street, SW, we are featuring expert speakers in law, politics, education and psychology. By coming here, you will obtain valuable information to apply to your cases. Extraordinary ordeals will also be featured where time allows. There is no charge for this event.

The second speaking event is the one on May 3, 2019 at the end of our March across from the Supreme Court (Area 10). This is where anyone can offer their stories of corruption, parent alienation and other human rights violations occurring in these courts. A microphone and sound system will facilitate this at approximately 3 pm (depending on the time of the March which begins at the White House at 1 pm). We are inviting mainstream and social media to both events.

To maximize our success on behalf of victimized parents everywhere, we need you to share, promote and support this event. We also need you to make and solicit donations on this site. This event is costly and we rely on your financial assistance. It’s time to shift the focus from illegal immigrants at our borders to American parents separated from their children here at home. Join our nationwide conference calls beginning dasily on Monday, April 20, 2019 at 7 pm EST. Call (605) 313-4165, enter access code 763491 when prompted.

Featured below are excerpts from speakers near the same location at a news conference in 2016. It begins with Dr. Mario Jimenez of Miami, Florida. The purpose was to draw attention to a case which I had docketed the same day at the United States Supreme Court (in the background). Now, an economics professor from a prominent university has a case which will be reviewed by the Justices here only days after our March ends. He will be speaking at both events.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Court Corruption Book, Satan’s Docket, Registers Early Success

 

IMG_0882

By Dr. Leon R. Koziol

Parenting Rights Institute

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.

Advertising Campaign Can Overcome Censorship of Family Court Corruption

IMG_0743

By Dr. Leon R. Koziol

Parenting Rights Institute

Let’s face it, mainstream media will not do it so we have to expose an epidemic on our own, the American way. Our children are worth it. Over the past month, I have embarked upon an advertising campaign in upstate New York to overcome widespread censorship of family court corruption. You should consider doing the same in your city or town.

It has become an epidemic which is harming our families, health, workplaces and moral fiber as a nation. A single half page advertisement for my new book, Satan’s Docket, resulted in a flurry of calls to local media according to reliable sources. The public is demanding an investigative report and exposure of the real issues which two family judge candidates are ignoring or covering up.

You can look up that ad entitled: Can Your Judge Be Bribed? on-line (pg A14  of hard copy) in Utica Observer Dispatch, October 15, 2017. And that was before a full page ad which I sponsored today (Sunday, October 22, 2017, pg A15)  entitled: Is Family Court Becoming A Ponzi Operation? At first blush, the question appears extreme because we are led to believe that courts are very high places and their judges have reputations “beyond reproach.”

Indeed that is what lawyers claimed after chastising me for filing a motion for disqualification of my custody judge, Bryan Hedges. That motion was based on a federal lawsuit by his chief family clerk resulting in a $600,000 recovery based on her refusal to engage in “political espionage,” (Morin v Tormey). The chastising ended months later when the same judge resigned for sexual abuse on his handicapped five year old niece. As an adult she called to commend my reform efforts.

These and other horror stories are itemized in my advertisement series this month and detailed in my book available at www.parentingrightsinstitute.com. That book has been sent to media contacts as far away as Paris and California. A major news organization in Manhattan has e-mailed me with an interest in a potential documentary. As fellow parents and court victims, we need to do the same in communities across the country.

At present there is no protection for judicial whistleblowers like me. Judges and ethics lawyers (who resigned in my case for falsifying their time sheets) have been relentless in their retaliation. Serial rulings against me have gone to unconscionable extremes to discredit my public message after 23 unblemished years as a civil rights lawyer and ten years as a model parent. In my book I have compared their shameless onslaught to a Rodney King beating with the fists and batons replaced by orders and edicts.

If you are interested in genuine reform, log on to the Parenting Rights Institute website where our ten year efforts and services are detailed. And help our cause by sharing this post.
