The removal and arrest of Missouri State Senator Maria Chappelle-Nadal.
On 8-17-17 Missouri Senator Maria Chappelle-Nadal that represents University City went to her Facebook Acct and wished for the assassination of President Trump saying and I quote "No, I will, she wrote. I hope Trump is assassinated." All Democratic and Republican politicians alike have requested that she step down. The Dem. Caucus Leader, Sen. Gina Walsh, has condemned what she has said clearly! Chappelle-Nadal has stated multiple times she refuses to even apologize over what she posted! It was not only disgraceful but in the highest form of disrespect there is. Now her being a public servant and being paid through the state tax revenue I am calling for her immediate recusal and arrest! US Code Title 18, Section 871 clearly states that any threat to the President is considered a political offense. This is punishable up to 5 years in prison and $250,000 maximum fine. We cannot allow someone such as a State Senator who knowingly knew her position, took it for granted and used that to say whatever she wanted against our current President of the United States. She has also been accused of threatening another member of the Missouri House Senate by harassment and saying she was going to cut her throat (Riverfront Times). http://www.stltoday.com/news/local/govt-and-politics/mccaskill-clay-and-others-call-for-mo-senator-to-resign/article_406059d6-1aa4-52fc-89ee-2a6a69baaf2e.html Link to McCaskill and other's of Missouri calling for her resignation. https://www.riverfronttimes.com/newsblog/2017/08/17/i-hope-trump-is-assassinated-state-senator-maria-chappelle-nadal-draws-condemnation Link to her saying she wanted to see Potus assassinated! https://youtu.be/ac1z-HafKio See the video of her saying she will not apologize! This Senator has clearly become unhinged in her duties and it is clear by her latest stunt not able to continue to serve in her post. If she would step down on her own I would not need to put this petition in place but she refuses to get off the payroll. We cannot allow someone here in Missouri to continue to represent this great state of ours, threaten fellow colleagues and above all else threaten and wish for the assassination of our President. I ask you today to join with me in signing this petition for her removal from Missouri's State Senate! Thank you!
Responsibilities Required From Social Media Regarding Romance Scamming and Identity Theft
THE CAUSE: Romance Scammers are all over social media networks. These scammers primarily use pictures, names and valor's of men and women who are actively serving in our military, retired or are deceased. Other prime targets for the scamming are Celebrities, and other high profile names. The scammers are aware how highly Americans think and feel for their military and they use this to pull at the heart strings of vulnerable men and women. Working with a retired Colonel from the United States Army whose pictures, name and child have been used in the scammers story, I have come to realize just what an epidemic this is. Unfortunately, many of the victims are afraid, ashamed, and embarrassed to come forward. Many just want to forget about the scam and move on with their lives. That is why I bring this petition to you. Due to the overwhelming numbers of fraudulent accounts throughout social media and the unidentified number of victims, we need to be the voice. Social Media has a great amount of power, and with power comes an abundance of responsibility. THE BATTLE: Because of the majority of military romance scammers residing in other countries, the United States has very little jurisdiction over these criminals, therefore we must work from where and what we know, and that is through the United States and our legislative system. We are looking to encourage social media sites to provide more public service announcements by way of television, movie theater ads, magazines, radio, etc. and provide additional man power to their fraudulent account tracking system as well as upgrading their security system to recognize these duplicated accounts that are recreated literally moments to hours after being deleted. Facial recognition does not solve all problems, especially when these scammers are using generic pictures (flowers, hearts etc.) on their profiles and cyber security is unable to recognize this discrepancy. OUR PROPOSAL: We are working hard to find a Champion to take on our proposal to amend the 230 Communications Decency Act of 1996 with the focus on identity theft. When this law was put into place 20 years ago there was little to no thought of the extreme type of crimes that could and or would be posted onto the social media platforms. This law gives social media a "get out of jail free" card, in other words, they are not held responsible for anything posted to their site by their own consumers. These sites are used as breeding grounds, and the social media companies are fully aware. We are not people who promote regulation, however it is very obvious, in previous news stories and with our own investigation, that self regulation is not the answer to consumer safety and security. We are proposing routine technology upgrades, additional staff to match growing population and ongoing up to date education. Items that are not successfully being done under self regulation. PERSONAL NOTE: I am a very proud daughter to a mother who served in our Navy, and brother and father who served in our Army. I also have multiple cousins, aunts and uncles who have served and the thought of our military being abused and disrespected is appalling! My mothers friend fell victim to a scammer using the pictures of the Colonel I am currently working with, thus being the reason I have become so involved. I, like many others, had no idea what an epidimic this has become and what little is being done. Social Media needs to take on more responsibility for this breeding ground than they already have, not just for the sake of the victims, but for the sake of our security, and Military whose job is to protect us. What security is social media providing them? Obviously, not the right kind. Scammers are the cancer to the social media world and it's time our companies and legislature took a stand and initiative to help prevent such illness within our military community and every day victims.
Petition For PA To Re-Open Investigation on Missing Pregnant Mother, Amanda Jones
In The Summer Of 2005: In Hillsboro, Missouri, A 9 Month Pregnant Woman, Disappeared from the Hillsboro Civic Center Fairgrounds. She went there to meet the Father of her Unborn Baby, to see if he would be interested in being a part of his child's life. Amanda Jones met Bryan Westfall at a Company Party. The two had an evening together and went on about their lives until, Amanda finds out she is pregnant. She then informs Bryan Westfall who at first denies the child. Throughout the pregnancy, Amanda made a few attempts to contact Westfall in regards to the unborn child. It wasn't until August, when Amanda was almost ready to deliver, that Bryan called her out of the blue and said that he wanted to talk about the baby. That was the last time Amanda's Family & Daughter, got to see her. Amanda has not been seen or heard from since that dreadful day in 2005. Her Family has not been given any answers as well as been able to rely on any kind of help from their local PA or Sheriff's Department. The day the Sheriff's Office contacted Bryan Westfall about Amanda's disappearance, He immediately retained a lawyer. Along with his long-time girlfriend, Stephanie Votrain, who, at the time, was never a suspect in the case, or, wanted for questioning! As of Just the end of this year in December, 2018, The Jefferson County Sheriff's Department admitted during an interview with News Channel 5, (That video you can see in the Updates to this petition), that they ONLY searched Bryan Westfalls Property ONE TIME AND IT WAS A LIMITED SEARCH LED BY MR. WESTFALL AND HIS ATTORNEY!!!!!!!! ARE YOU KIDDING ME?!?! This Guy has OVER 600 ACRES OF LAND... And when have you really ever seen a search being done on someone's property that is so limited??? HELLO, WE ARE TALKING ABOUT A MISSING PERSON HERE! WHAT IS WRONG WITH THIS SITUATION? The Sheriff's Department also said in the interview that, "They do not have a warrant to search westfalls property." THEN GET ONE! NOT ONE OF THEM HAVE EVEN SUBMITTED AN AFFIDAVIT TO A JUDGE TO OBTAIN A WARRANT!!!! This is absurd! Is this really what citizens of this county have to deal with? Especially the parents of this missing woman? Amanda's Father served this fine Country we live in, is this how we Thank Him? By not even offering a hand of help or just a answer to SOMETHING?? Still to this day, the Sheriff's Department says that they still have some questions for Westfall, who, still has the same attorney 13 years later, But, has made no effort to bring him in for questioning. The amount of Circumstantial Evidence on the Case, as well as, enough eye-witnesses to the character of Bryan Westfall, his family, and his long-time girlfriend, Stephanie Votrain, is enough to prove a Pre-Meditated Murder but, neither the Sheriff's Office nor PA will do anything to pursue this case. When Amanda's family calls their Sheriff's Office to get answers on their daughters disappearance, The Sheriff's Department either doesn't answer, calls back and tells them their is no new information on the case, or simply, don't return the phone call at all. They have also told the family that they should have some "compassion for them." Yet, Not once, have they offered "compassion" to this Family. Not only that but, How can they even dare to ask the Family of a Missing Pregnant Woman to have compassion for them? This is a 13 year old case that has gone cold for no reason,and the community is outraged and wants Justice To Be Served as well as the same for her Family. 13 Years a Suspect has never given answers, has never been arrested, but, gets to sleep every night in a warm bed. Please Help Us By Signing This Petition, So, We Can Present This To The Prosecuting Attorney, As Well As, Sheriff's Department, To Re-Open & Investigate The Case On Amanda Jones, And Get Some Answers For Her Family! You can Find Videos on Crime Watch Daily on Amanda Jones as well as stories on Fox2now.com and many other news-stations as well as news articles in local media. We also have a Go Fund Me page open for the family. This is to help them with any Fees that might help in finding out information on their daughter. The link to that is also posted on a Update to this Petition. We ask for any help we can get to help this family find their daughter. We ask for any lawyer/attorney/civil rights activist, anyone, who can maybe help us or guide us in the direction of someone that could be of assistance to us or this case. You truly will never know what it would mean to this family, as well as this community. Thank You For Any And All Help Because It Is Well Appreciated! #FINDAMANDAJONES

Make Endometriosis A Recognized Disability In the United States
1 in 10 women suffer with Endometriosis which has no cure. Most of these women are in the twenty to forty age group (can be younger or older) and of the women who have this condition up to 40% are infertile. Unfortunately it can take up to 10 years for a woman to be diagnosed with endometriosis. Many struggle to keep jobs or have lost their jobs due to this painful condition. As of right now social security does not recognized endometriosis on the disability list. It is because they consider the pain to be intermittent and can be manged with medication which endo suffers can agree that that is not always the case. Too often women are turned down because of this reason. This petition has been made so that we can get this condition recognized as a disability in the United States. Too often we must suffer because we have no other resort. I hope that we can reach the white house and make this happen. Everyone please sign, this condition is so common that if you are not a sufferer yourself you know someone (mother, sister, aunt, daughter, wife, girlfriend, friend, etc.) that suffers from it. Thank you for your support!
Stop bloodshed and massacre of peaceful protesters in Sudan
“We need not wait to see what others do”Gandhi.Dear Honorable representative, We, the people, are urging you for an immediate action to stop the bloodshed and massacre in Sudan. We are reaching out for your support and help. As you have likely heard, the crisis in Sudan has escalated under the oppressive rule of president, Omar Al-Bashir. It is now a deadly standoff between peaceful protestors and a brutal government forces.Reports leaked from Al-Bashir’s meeting with his his top aides, indicated that a decision is made to forcefully disperse the peaceful protests and use all necessary means to do that.for the last four months, peaceful protesters took on the streets demanding freedom and change, yesterday millions of people marched and and are now camping peacefully in front of military headquarters in Khartoum, their only weapon is their voices, they were met with tear gas and live ammunition, so far 66 young protesters were brutally murdered, 6 of them in the last 24 hours, It was an intentional murder with gun shots to the head and neck. That did not deter the protesters and it made them more determined to topple the regime. We are afraid that with silence of the international community the situation will escalate into a large scale massacre and more unarmed peaceful protesters will die. Al-Bashir regime is notorious in suppressing human rights and basic freedoms of expression. For almost 30 years, this regime has orchestrated the imprisonment of innocent citizens, destroyed the economy, and murdered thousands of people, Al-Bashir and his top officials are wanted by the international criminal court for genocide and crimes against humanity.It is a moral obligation and civic duty to stand by the brave protesters in Sudan in their quest for freedom and democracy.We urge you to take an action, support, and stand in solidarity with the people of Sudan.Sincerely,
Protect Shareholders. Strike the Financial Choice Act 2.0.
Shareholder democracy is being profoundly threatened by Section 844 of the Financial CHOICE Act 2.0. This new legislation, which was heard by the Congressional Financial Services Committee on April 26 and then passed by the House on June 8, contains a provision that would fundamentally impair investors' rights to file shareholder resolutions. It is now scheduled to be voted on in the Senate. The new rule would permit only a tiny fraction of the globe’s wealthiest investors (those who own more than 1% or more of a company’s stock) to file shareholder proposals. For example, raising the ownership requirement to 1% would leave only 11 investors with enough shares ($3 billion) necessary to file shareholder proposals at Wells Fargo. All other shareholders would be blocked from using their shareholder rights to address equity, justice, sustainability, climate, risk, and good governance issues. Sign our petition and make your voice heard. We will be sending signatures, as well as the letter linked below, to the Senate. Let’s work together to defeat this destabilizing legislation that will profoundly affect consumers, investors, and the economy at large.
Tell the US Government Not to Normalize Relations with Sudan
SILENCE IS DEADLY!!! Add your voice to ours to ask Congress to call for strong US policy towards Sudan An opportunity to end the collaboration and silence; to stop the torture of women, the rape of children, the murder of men; a genocide that feeds on our silence and continues after 14 years. Here’s your chance to help toward its just end it by signing this petition. Read to understand why this is important: Although the Sudanese Government has been committing genocide and providing support to terrorist groups in the Middle East, North Africa and around the world, the United States has lifted sanctions with a plan underway to normalize relations with this murderous regime. We are launching this petition to urge the US to maintain Sudan’s designation as a State Sponsor of Terrorism, and to develop a strong US policy which will hold Sudan accountable for perpetrating genocide and supporting terrorist groups and threatening the security of the United States. Stand with us to demand that the United States not normalize relations with a regime that slaughters its own people and threatens the national security of the United States. In 2009, President Bashir of Sudan was indicted by the International Criminal Court (ICC) of genocide, war crimes and crimes against humanity committed in the western Sudan region known as Darfur. Darfur- the longest genocide in history: The Government of Sudan began its genocidal campaign in Darfur in 2002, using Arab Janjaweed militias and the Sudan Armed Forces to target the indigenous African people, mostly from Fur, Massalete and Zagawa tribes. Launching a scorched earth policy by burning villages, killing, pillaging, destroying food and water sources and raping women. The situation which has been characterized by the UN representatives in Sudan at that moment as “the worst humanitarian crises in the world.” The United States under President George W. Bush and the US Congress officially declared the situation a genocide in 2004. Consequently, the United Nations created an international commission of inquiry. The commission investigated and found that the Government of Sudan had committed genocidal activities and documented about 150 Sudanese officials to be responsible for the crimes committed in Darfur. In 2005, member states of the United Nations Security Council unanimously referred the case of Darfur to the ICC. The ICC’s investigation resulted in the determination that genocide, war crimes and crimes against humanity had been committed by the Government of Sudan and its allied militias. The ICC issued arrest warrants against President Bashir and other Sudanese officials for genocide, war crimes and crimes against humanity. In spite of these warrants, President Bashir remains free and continues to perpetrate his genocidal policy against the people of Darfur. He has added a raging war in the Nuba mountains and Blue Nile states. To this day, he commits extreme human rights abuses across Sudan with total impunity!!! The US Government imposed economic sanctions which limited the Sudanese Government's financial capacity to support further killings. in an attempt to hold Sudan accountable for crimes committed in Darfur. Sanctions included clear benchmarks that the Government of Sudan ceases killing its own people, create significant progress toward peace, and ensure accountability for perpetrators before US sanctions could be lifted. In 2006 the UN reported that over 300,000 civilians had been killed, mostly women and children. Now, more than 14 years later, over 4 million people have been affected and over 3 million have been forced out of their homes to live in deplorable conditions in internally displaced and external refugee camps, unable to return to their homeland for fear of attack. Millions of those who survive are subjected to constant attacks and rapes by government soldiers, who utilize rape as a weapon of war and a method of terror. Countless women and girls have been victimized, and the perpetrators have not faced any consequences. Current Situation: It has recently come to our attention that the United State is preparing to remove Sudan’s designation as a State Sponsor of Terrorism. This is a dangerous move that will lead to the normalization of US relations with Sudan, a regime with a human rights record including genocide and collaboration with notorious terrorist leaders such as Osama Bin Laden and the leaders of ISIS. President al-Bashir is a military dictator who came to power by coup in 1989 and declared his affiliation with international extremist organizations around the world. He has used force to reorient Sudanese society to adopt Islamic fundamentalist ideology. By the mid-1990s Sudan had invited the most notorious terrorist groups from around the world, including Osama bin Laden, and had declared its support for these groups. As a result, the US designated Sudan as a State Sponsor of Terrorism and imposed economic sanctions against it. Sudan has continued to provide support to Hamas and other fundamentalist groups, including Malian jihadists, Boko Haram, and ISIS. Sudan has ceased support for or collaboration with such groups. Sudan has presented itself to the west as a partner in counter-terrorism, but only cooperating at the bare minimum while continuing to liaise and provide support for terrorist leaders in the region. Lifting Sudan’s designation as a State Sponsor of Terrorism will allow Sudan full access to international trade and investment, including the purchase of modern American armaments, and can only serve to further the cause of the al-Bashir regime in spreading death and violence across Sudan. Despite outrage and opposition from the anti-atrocity community and several members of Congress, the Trump administration lifted sanctions in October of 2017, awarding a regime that continues to commit genocide and to pose a threat to US national security. The lifting of sanctions has already emboldened the Government of Sudan and is enabling genocide. As of today, millions of genocide victims are still in camps, facing a great deal of suffering and oppression. We are asking the US Government to maintain Sudan’s designation as a State Sponsor of Terrorism, and also to reimpose the sanctions lifted in late 2017. Such action will limit the Sudanese Government's access to international trade and investments, consequently limiting its ability to purchase more weapons to kill innocent civilians. We are further demanding a strong US policy on Sudan that will hold the perpetrators of genocide accountable and will limit al-Bashir’s ability to support terrorist groups that threaten the Sudanese and American peoples, and indeed the stability of the entire world. This is why we ask for your help by adding your voice and reaching out to others to add their voices as well so that we can make our voices louder to ensure that the Trump administration does the right thing. Normalizing relations with Sudan means normalizing genocide. We must demand that the United States, adhering to American values as the leading government in the world, must meet its legal and moral obligation toward Sudan.
