United States Congressman | 22nd District of California
United States Congressman | 22nd District of California
Bill Summary This bill will require the creation and installment of a new student reporting system that will be accessed by all agencies that deal with children, create an educational seminar on child abuse incorporated into their early education curriculum and up through high school, add additional changes to the way Child Protective Services operates, and restrict records for deceased children from being redacted Background We have heard many stories of child abuse and neglect as a nationwide, systemic problem, citing case overloads as part of a bigger issue. According to the 26th Child Maltreatment Report created by the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services, 1575 child fatalities reported in 2011; 1619 child fatalities reported in 2012; 1551 child fatalities reported in 2013; 1583 child fatalities reported in 2014; and 1585 child fatalities reported in 2015, nationwide. In 2015, nationwide, 78.61% of those children were all school age or otherwise, < 2 years old. On May 22, 2013, Gabriel Fernandez, DOB February 20, 2005, received emergency response services due to full arrest as a result of approximately 8 months of child abuse and neglect at the hands of Pearl Sinthia Fernandez and Isauro Aguirre. Over the course of 8 months, over 50 reports were phoned into social workers to report abuse that went undocumented and unfounded, along with phone calls made to sheriff’s deputies, in regards to Gabriel. In particular, Gabriel’s teacher, Jennifer Garcia, made numerous phone calls to the social worker on his case, citing his injuries. Gabriel succumbed to his injuries on May 24, 2013, in what we know now as one of the worst cases of child abuse known to the United States of America. On November 15, 2017, Isauro Aguirre was found guilty of 1st-degree murder with special circumstances of torture. A trial for Gabriel’s mother, Pearl Sinthia Fernandez, and the four social workers involved with Gabriel’s case are still pending. When looking into other child abuse fatalities, it was found that the Department of Child and Family Services began redacting all of their records to prevent the community from researching cases. Transparency is vital to instill confidence in the agencies entrusted to protect children. According to “The economic burden of child maltreatment in the Unites States and implications for prevention” (Child Abuse and Neglect. The International Journal. Fang, Brown, Florence, Mercy 2012), cited by the Center of Disease Control, “The estimated average lifetime cost per victim of nonfatal child maltreatment is $210,012 in 2010 dollars, including $32,648 in childhood health care costs; $10,530 in adult medical costs; $144,360 in productivity losses; $7,728 in child welfare costs; $6,747 in criminal justice costs; and $7,999 in special education costs. The estimated average lifetime cost per death is $1,272,900, including $14,100 in medical costs and $1,258,800 in productivity losses. The total lifetime economic burden resulting from new cases of fatal and nonfatal child maltreatment in the United States in 2008 is approximately $124 billion. In sensitivity analysis, the total burden is estimated to be as large as $585 billion. Findings concluded that the cost of living children who suffered maltreatment, in 2008, estimated a lifetime amount of approximately $210,012, while those whose maltreatment resulted in fatality cost an estimated lifetime amount of approximately $1.3 million. Problem There is a systematic failure in communication with regards to the safety and welfare of at-risk children who depend on adults to protect them. Had there been a system in place to allow for all agencies to effectively communicate with one another, and track all reports and documents, in regards to any reported child abuse, that may have helped save Gabriel’s life. Children depend on adults for protection and safeguarding. We are in an era of technology where we have need to improve, exponentially, our ability and duties to safeguard children. Records for child abuse fatalities should be unsealed and social workers who have repeat fatalities need to be investigated and retrained. Solution I. A nationwide system needs to be installed, in all schools, child welfare agencies, law enforcement agencies, doctor’s offices, and district attorney’s office, that help mandated reporters create electronic SCAR (Suspected Child Abuse Report), allow the agencies to track reports and status of child abuse. a. The system shall have an alert for law enforcement and social worker of any extended absence that doesn’t have any parent contact/medical documentation over a 2-day period/as reported by the attending school. b. The system shall have an alert for law enforcement and assigned social workers and their supervisors of any non-enrollment of children within a 2-day period. c. The system shall have an alert for CPS supervisors for a daily review of any child that has repeated reports. d. In conjunction with each agency, especially if a school alert comes in, an immediate action plan is put in place to ensure the safety of the child. e. Doctor’s may flag any injury as possible child abuse which will create an electronic SCAR. f. District Attorney’s office will have the ability to create customizable reports and alerts based on criteria needed to help with cases and decisions made in regards to court cases and as needed. II. A child abuse curriculum needs to be created and implemented starting at early education and moving up through high school. This curriculum needs to be implemented into the foster system and the juvenile hall system as well. The curriculum should include a discussion on all forms of abuse, from sexual harassment/sexual assault to all types of child abuse that can occur within the home. III. Specific changes need to be made within the Child Protective Services to ensure adequate and complete recording. a. Assign nurses to social workers for house visits and documentation of any abuse to any child. b. Social workers assigned to Child Protective Services need to be able to handle the caseloads and demonstrate effective investigative and communicative skills. The requirement is 40 hours of in-service training to advance from CSW II to CSW III. c. If a worker cannot perform their tasks effectively, there needs to be immediate consequences or corrective discipline to ensure the safety of children in their care. d. Supervisor technique training needs to be provided to all current and future supervisors, to help ensure supervisory skills. Additionally, they need to also have all the knowledge of working as a Child Protective Services social worker prior to being a supervisor for that department. e. Computer systems must be well maintained and updated on a 5-year basis, to the most current technology, to keep up with efficiency. f. Any fatalities under a social worker must be thoroughly investigated and the worker must be removed from the Child Protective Services department until uptraining is completed and they can prove themselves capable of the position. g. Mandatory recorded interviews with social worker, nurse, and interviewee. IV. Law Enforcement needs to be accountable and understand that child abuse claims are not only important but need to be documented. a. Any type of child abuse needs to be reported, via the new system, which will generate a SCAR b. Any call to a scene should include an address lookup to see if there are children residing at the residence and if there are any child abuse reports made, to make sure they have a well-rounded understanding of what they are walking into. c. The alert for suspected child abuse reports should be reviewed by Special Victims Unit, or a specific unit, to ensure that follow up. V. Educational institutes should have the ability to have access to the system and file reports based on extended absences, tardiness or signs of abuse. a. Teachers should be able to file a SCAR from their desk in their classroom b. An alert from school should immediately trigger with Law Enforcement and Child Protective Services. VI. Doctor’s office will be able to flag and note a child’s record in ways that will flag agencies depending on the situation. a. Extended absences will be flagged to go directly to school’s attendance office and immediately alert school of extended absence. b. The doctor can flag any abnormalities that appear to be child abuse that will create a SCAR to alert Child Protective Services of injuries and suspicions. VII. All documents pertaining to a deceased child shall be made available, via an amendment to privacy laws, with all redaction markings removed. VIII. Increase Statute of Limitations for felony child abuse should be increased from 3 years to 6 years. In Many cases, children are not aware that they are victims to begin with. Often, it is not a single event, but consecutive instances over a span of time which requires that the statute be extended to the point where the victim first files a report of abuse. IX. Failure to Report Child Abuse should be changed from a straight misdemeanor to a “wobbler” with a 3 or 6-year statute of limitations. Negligence to report abuse is not an acceptable excuse to prevent a child from obtaining criminal action. Purposefully declining or avoiding to file a report of abuse should be met with the more severe penalty. X. Children who are in a coma or dying in manners consistent with murder or suspected foul play must undergo autopsy once deceased. XI. Mandatory Child Abuse Education classes for all new welfare applicants. XII. Adults living in a household, and witnesses to abuse of any minors within that household, who fail to report or try to prevent abuse to minors shall be charged as follows: a. Non-fatal injury to child - Accomplice to Child Abuse – min. 1-year b. Child Abuse resulting in fatal injury – Accomplice to Child Abuse resulting in Fatality – min 10 year.
Speak up for California Salmon! No to Senate & House Bills 2533 & 2898
We are asking you to take a moment to help us address a critical issue, Water! The current water bills (link to bill 2533 here and bill 2898 here) introduced by Sen. Feinstein and Rep. Valadao in the Senate and House will be up for consideration in Congress before the end of the year. These bills weaken protections for salmon in order to pump more water from the Delta in Northern California for use primarily for big ag in the San Joaquin Valley. Water is a public resource, and therefore should include all constituents. These bills dramatically weaken or completely eliminate consideration of water for the environment, specifically for wild California salmon, which need cold water released at certain times of the year to spawn, rear and migrate to the ocean. They would also promote new taxpayer subsidized and salmon killing dams. We understand that ag needs water. So do salmon! Sacrificing the environment, salmon and the multi-billion dollar fishing industry to move more water is a dangerous and biased approach. We need a long-term solution for the drought which reflects the needs of all constituents, human as well as wildlife. We know how do to this. More conservation groundwater clean up and management, water recycling and capturing urban stormwater can provide plenty of additional water for cities and agriculture. And restoring habitat and ensuring adequate flows can help restore salmon and the environment. We are asking for your help, because to risk the health and future viability of wild salmon runs in California due to poor legislation is inexcusable. Speak up for Salmon!
Pass H.R. 2737: Filipino Veterans of World War II Congressional Gold Medal Act of 2015
On June 11, 2015, Rep. Tulsi Gabbard and Sen. Mazie Hirono introduced HR 2737 & S 1555 respectively as the Filipino Veterans of World War II Congressional Gold Medal Act of 2015. The pending legislation, “directs the President pro tempore of the Senate and the Speaker of the House of Representatives to make appropriate arrangements for the award of a single Congressional Gold Medal to the Filipino Veterans in recognition of their dedicated service during World War II.” Other groups have been formally recognized by the United States with the Congressional Gold Medal for World War II service; they include the Tuskegee Airmen, Montford Point Marines, Navajo Code Talkers, Women Air Service Pilots, Japanese American Nisei Soldiers and Puerto Rican Soldiers. Filipino World War II Veterans are equally deserving of this honor. In order to pass HR 2737, the bill requires sponsorship from 290 congressional representatives, S 1555 needs 67 senators. Today, HR 2737 has 312 cosponsors, S 1555 has 71. I would like to ask your assistance in reaching out to your congressional representative to get their support as a sponsor for the pending legislation. Time is not on our side; the number of remaining Filipino Veterans is fast decreasing. We need to pass these bills before the 114th Congress come to a close at the end of the year.
Please help prevent this silent attack on Americans’ 2nd Amendment rights.
Sirs, You may or may not be aware of the impending proposed ruling that is set to be deliberated on after January 25 by the BATFE that is being incorrectly disguised as a ruling on bump fire stocks. The ruling aims to address any modification to a firearm that increases the rate of fire based on its recoil or operating system. Because the Las Vegas shooting is so fresh in our minds, people naturally assume that this is only to affect bump fire stocks. Whether one is for or against regulating bump fire stocks, this assumption that that is the only thing affected here is absolutely and provably incorrect. In order to increase the “rate of fire”, there has to be an established “standard” rate of fire. There is currently no such thing as a standard rate of fire for any standard semi automatic firearm or any firearm that can hold more than one round. That is a very subjective thing and no one has yet to even remotely suggest what that definition for rate would be. And who is to fairly decide what that rate is? I happen to be friends with a professional championship shooter by the name of Max Michel who can fire a semi automatic pistol at roughly 180 rounds per minute. So does he set the standard rate of fire? Or do we let a 95-year-old elderly person set it where he is firing at a rate of 10 to 20 rounds per minute? And does the person setting that rate of fire take into account magazine changes? In other words, if the person setting that standard rate of fire is doing so in the state of New York where they can only equip their semi automatic pistols with seven rounds in the magazine, their rate of fire per minute would be much less than mine in the free state of Louisiana because they have to perform magazine changes during that one minute drill and I don’t. Therefore, due to those magazine changes their demonstrated standard rate of fire would be fewer rounds per minute. As you can see, the ambiguity of any such ruling is quite frightening to law abiding citizens like me and every other gun owner that I know. All it takes is an overreaching administration in the White House to take ambiguous wording and use it to their anti-gun advantage. I think we have seen examples of this in the very recent past. Essentially, this type of ruling is an attack on any semi automatic firearm that exists today that is perfectly legal to purchase and owned by millions of people across America. Are you prepared to stand behind a ruling that would make felonies out of millions of your constituents? We can’t vote for you if we are in jail, but we would vote you out before we go in! The BATFE is currently asking the public’s opinion on these bump fire devices and the public is overwhelmingly obliging if you were not aware. (Click HERE to visit the site.) I would recommend you contact their main office and ask about this. The disappointing thing to proud Americans and avid voters like myself is that our elected officials - meaning YOU - are not taking it upon yourself to do your own job and provide legislation that affects Americans and the Constitution. Since when is it the BATFE’s job to institute legislation that affects the Constitution? Isn’t that your job? Are you avoiding your own job and passing that responsibility off to a federal agency that does not possess the power nor authority to make laws? What can millions of voting Americans take from that? As you have seen in the past, Americans take their 2nd Amendment rights much more seriously than petty items such as which bathroom men and women might choose to use. As an American with the same rights as you, I ask that you please take up the fight to protect our Constitution and tell the BATFE that while they can collect all the public comments they like on bump stocks, they are to only provide those comments and recommendations to Congress and the President to legislate any action that is to take place going forward. That is why we Americans elected you. I do not give you permission to jettison that responsibility off to unelected, unaccountable federal employees. As a proud American I am hopeful that you accept this responsibility and stand up for honest, law-abiding citizens who - in most cases - only wish to protect themselves and their families. Respectfully, 2nd Amendment supporter / Voter / Proud American
Congress: Investigate Russian involvement in the 2016 Presidential election
Recent media reports have stated that the Russian government may have been involved in computer hacks designed to influence the outcome of the 2016 campaign for President of the United States. Additionally, a Russian government official recently admitted that Russia was in contact with President-elect Donald Trump's campaign during the election. These two incidents suggest that potential crimes may have been committed against the American people and undermined the democratic process of electing our president. We urge Congress to immediately hold public hearings and begin investigations into theses incidents to determine what effects they had on the election.
Demand Graham, Grassley, McConnell, Ryan and Nunes RESIGN for Dereliction of Duty
It is increasingly clear that members of the GOP Congress who are charged with upholding the Constitution and investigating attacks on our Democracy including collusion of the Trump campaign with Russia and consequent obstruction of justice by the White House are derelict in their representation of the American people. They have transitioned from merely dragging their feet to outright obstruction of justice. They believe they are above the law. While we wait for our opportunity to vote these people out of office in 2018 midterms, our democracy is ripped apart a little more each day. We cannot sit back idly and wait while our country is damaged beyond repair. We must take action now. Sign this petition to demand the resignation of Congressmen Lindsay Graham, Chuck Grassley, Devin Nunes, Mitch McConnell and Paul Ryan for dereliction of duty and failure to uphold the constitution. While these men are protected from lawsuit by the Constitution, we do have recourse - we can hold recall elections. If they do not willingly resign at the will of the people, we will pursue a formal recall of their seat within their electorate.
Stop US domestic torture
To President Donald J. Trump Dear Mr. President, We unite in asking you to act to fully review Executive order 12333 and terminate immediately the ongoing covert programs of Electronic Warfare, non consensual implants, toxic injections, electromagnetic weapons, advanced technology nano weapons, mind control, remote drug delivery while target is sleeping, ruinations of innocent Targeted Individuals, criminal fusion center killers working with state police to stalk, frame up, and terrorize attack innocent people that have been surveilled by NSA and COINTELPRO-based domestic terrorism that are currently being run by the US Intelligence agencies, US Military, US Homeland Security, and their contractors in the name of Electronic “Surveillance” and National Security against the American population. We urge you to enforce sections of EXECUTIVE ORDER 12333 in accordance with the Constitution of the United States of America pertaining to: S EC . 2.10 HUMAN EXPERIMENTATION . No element of the Intelligence Community shall sponsor, contract for, or conduct research on human subjects except in accordance with guidelines issued by the Department of Health and Human Services. The subject's informed consent shall be documented as required by those guidelines. (We strongly urge you to revise and remove all exceptions pertaining to section 2.10) S EC . 2.11 PROHIBITION ON ASSASSINATION . No person employed by or acting on behalf of the United States Government shall engage in or conspire to engage in assassination. S EC . 2.12 INDIRECT PARTICIPATION . No element of the Intelligence Community shall participate in or request any person to undertake activities forbidden by this Order. S EC . 2.13 LIMITATION ON COVERT ACTION . No covert action may be conducted which is intended to influence United States political processes, public opinion, policies, or media. S EC . 2.8 CONSISTENCY WITH OTHER LAWS . Nothing in this Order shall be construed to authorize any activity in violation of the Constitution or statutes of the United States. As you enter this office, it is highly suspected that the Deep State and unelected shadow government that apparently hovers behind all those elected to the government of the United States will present these covert programs to you as normative Intelligence and surveillance activity necessary for the preservation of National Security. As Intelligence analysts, human rights activists, advocates, whistleblowers, writers, scientists, victims, and highly productive and accomplished members of society with varied science, arts, and humanities backgrounds in critical thinking, systems analysis, engineering, education, healthcare, law, and Intelligence, we are here to inform you otherwise: These are NOT normative Intelligence and Surveillance activities. Using the deadly weapons of Mass Destruction, these are organized Terror programs, committing the most horrific crimes and human rights violations, causing grievous bodily harm to countless numbers of innocent citizens. Surveiling and assaulting neither terrorists nor spies but the best and brightest, most productive, and most accomplished Americans, as well as whistle-blowers and activists, these programs seriously destabilize our civil society, are at risk of irreversibly degenerating the economic output of our country, and have already become our most shameful export abroad. Situation On the Ground in Continental USA Thanks to the trillions of dollars poured annually into Covert Operations funding, the carte blanche given to Intelligence and Military agencies, both pre-and post-911, and the convenience of classification and concealment of all manner of dubious activities as necessary for National Security, fraud, waste, and corruption at the highest levels of Government is now endemic. Corrupt factions in Intelligence agencies and in Military departments are now openly committing war crimes and crimes against humanity in acts of direct enmity against the American people. In the name of the War on Terror, a superior trafficking operation has been unleashed by the US Military, Department of Homeland Security, and the CIA on American citizens: Current military and Intelligence directives (5240.1R, the NDAA, EO 12333, and the CIA’s AR 2-2) together permit the US military to detain citizens indefinitely, and to use those Americans “under surveillance” for experimentation purposes. This is used for an outright, public enslavement and torture of a large fraction of the US population. The creation of Joint Targeting operations, Fusion Centers, Regional Information and Sharing Systems (RISS) programs with privatized Intelligence centers, as well as “Community Policing” and “Neighborhood Watch” initiatives have permitted a network of immoral and depraved operatives from Law Enforcement, the Intelligence agencies, and the military, using the guise of “national security” to conduct financially rewarding no-holds-barred human testing for the pharmaceutical, surveillance, and weapons industries, as well as to live out their personal sadism and depravity. It is a telling characteristic that the victims of these crimes are 70-80% women. The sex ratio is indicative of sexual violence and war crimes. Meanwhile, an ever increasing army of civilian, quasi “Law Enforcement” personnel, sometimes taken from the dregs of society, is being trained, round the clock and used in set-up 24/7 operations, on those innocent Americans being targeted. In the name of the War on Terror, and masquerading as necessary Electronic Surveillance, condoned and orchestrated by US Homeland Security and the US Department of Justice, the most deceptive and deadly weapons of Warfare are being routinely used on civilians under so-called surveillance inside their own homes including: directed-energy and microwave weapons, non consensual implants toxic injections electromagnetic weapons advanced technology nano weapons mind control remote drug delivery while target is sleeping ruinations of innocent Targeted Individuals criminal fusion center killers working with state police to stalk, frame up, and terrorize attack innocent people that have been under surveillance by NSA and COINTELPRO-based domestic terrorism infrasonic and ultrasonic weapons, military radar weapons, neuro-weapons, infections with biological or synthetic self-replicating nanotechnology agents (“smart dust”) that aid the readout of brain activity. These are military weapons of war, designed to incapacitate, degrade, and destroy human organs, nerves, bodies, and brains; they are further being used inhumanely, in non-stop, 24/7 scenarios of attack. In addition, CIA/DIA/DARPA/NSA agents also run covert interrogation exercises, mind control operations, and behavior modification programs (extensions of MK ULTRA and the original Nazi death-camp experiments) on their brains. A vast apparatus of sophisticated stealth Electronic Warfare and Signals Intelligence equipment carried on planes, drones, helicopters, satellites, cell towers, ground-vehicles—and involving the complicity of all Intelligence agencies, such as the NRO, NGSA, and Federal agencies such as the FAA and NASA is being used for this purpose. Those being hit with Electronic Warfare weapons are also being subjected daily to COINTELPRO actions or “Zersetzung”—organized stalking, crowding, mobbing, obstructing, brighting, flashing, noise harassment carried out by the FBI’s Infragard, as well as US Neighborhood Watch groups. These are joint US Military and Intelligence programs of domestic torture, hidden under cover of biometric surveillance, physical surveillance, and electronic surveillance by a cynical and corrupt Homeland Security/Department of Justice mechanism, which has permitted the use of cover-story labels to conceal the use of violence on American citizens. In the name of the War on Terror, in 2017, American neighborhoods and communities have been transformed from calm, peaceful, and neighborly communities into predator vs. prey, i.e. divided holdouts of covert spying, snitching, Electronic Warfare, smear campaigns, and studied COINTELPRO attacks on neighbors, planned and coordinated through federal government-sponsored intelligence, information and command centers at the national and local levels, such as the Regional Information Sharing System (RISS), the U.S. Department of Justice, and the network of Fusion Centers. At core of these attacks are the innocent Americans being wrongfully targeted and defamed as extremists, terrorists, spies, enemy combatants: often the most upright in communities, people of conscience and community spirit, integrity and accomplishment, entrepreneurship and creativity, innocence and impeccable character, people targeted not for their potential for criminality but for their innate power as attractors and disseminators of positive community influence. The coterie of criminals from inside the FBI/DHS/CIA/NSA and local Law Enforcement and RISS centers involved in these programs openly lie in neighborhoods to name these innocents terrorists or spies, open investigations on innocents, start slander and defamation campaigns on innocents, and then corral whole communities into helping them surveil, spy, sabotage, and slander them, under threat of high fines and jail time. By these means, whole lives are destroyed: employment is sabotaged, lies are circulated, and families are torn apart. Neighbors become collaborators and complicit when they let Electronic Weapons operators freely enter their neighborhoods and homes, using their driveways and properties to install antennas and conduct tracking operations. Collaborators are paid handsomely and bribed with home renovations, new cars, and tickets to luxury holidays and ball games. They are also trained in the operation of certain equipment, including cell phones to direct pulsed radiation attacks, which they now turn on their innocent neighbor. This rewards and entrenches corrupt behavior in a manner that will utterly splinter and disintegrate our society for decades to come. Worst of all, this system of routine horrific abuses has developed a life of its own whereby ever more vindictive acts are committed and the perpetrators on the ground take free licence to do whatever they like at the expense of economically productive members in our society. Their excesses include electronic rape. Psychiatry has been roped in as political tool to subjugate those reporting these programs by naming them delusional, a verdict that Law Enforcement and CIA-controlled media then run with. It must be stressed that the national silence on this issue as well as the distortions of reportage we see in mainstream-media mention of “Targeted Individuals” who report abusive surveillance programs is directly related to the vampiric control of major media that the CIA exerts, and their deliberate promotion of deception in coverage, in order to keep these violent, mutilatory programs of Electronic Weapon use on citizens clandestine and concealed. Corruption at the levels of Law Enforcement and the Department of Justice, and the use of weaponized psychiatry combined with indiscriminate smears and slander of the victims has prevented the situation from being remedied. A Public Scandal Of International Proportions This has now become a proliferating and self-perpetuating industry of premeditated, systematic mutilation of some of the most productive members of our society. By getting rid of people of conscience and integrity, whistleblowers, and activists in communities—through these extreme means of public torture and humiliation—it appears that the covert operators in Intelligence and military agencies running these programs seek more and more to create docile, deceitful, and pliable populations, people who will believe the official lie, people who will turn on their own friends and neighbors, people who will assist in stoning the innocent to death. The extent and sadism of these deliberate bodily and brain assaults—which essentially involve the use of military weapons of war on peaceful, non-combatant, unarmed civilians, peacefully residing in their own country–amount to crimes against humanity being perpetrated against the American people. And sadly, these Nazi death-camp programs of torture have become USA’s most prominent export along with our bombs, missiles, and drones. To the disgrace of all Law-Enforcement, victims have been pleading for support publicly on social media for years. By now, the situation has gone beyond a disgrace and has become a public scandal of international proportions that is threatening the stability of our societies. Without a doubt, this problem is destroying the best and brightest in our nation and will inevitably affect the economic and creative capabilities of the US. This already sets us back in the race with other nations and seriously exposes the US to the danger of a hostile takeover. Silent Holocaust Taking Place Inside the US Please see attached here: 1) The Executive Summary: Neuropsychological and Electronic No-Touch Torture Report (Based on “The Torture Memos” and the Senate Intelligence Committee’s Declassified “Torture Report”) By Robert Duncan, A.B., S.M., M.B.A., Ph.D. 2) NSA whistleblower Karen Stewart’s succinct summation of what has happened to America 3) EXECUTIVE ORDER 12333: UNITED STATES INTELLIGENCE ACTIVITIES Under former President Bush and now continued under President Obama, what apparently started decades ago as illegal and clandestine programs of experiments on human subjects, such as the CIA’s MK ULTRA, has resulted in the proliferation of Defense Contractors such as Lockheed Martin, Raytheon, General Dynamics, and others, making secret agreements with Federal agencies such as DOD, DIA, NSA, DHS, etc., to allow them and related laboratories and universities to expand inhumane experimentation programs such as illegal experiments for Directed Energy Weapons, non consensual implants, toxic injections, em weapons, advanced Technology nano weapons, mind control, remote drug delivery while target is sleeping, ruinations of innocent Targeted Individuals, criminal fusion center killers working with state police to stalk, frame up, and terrorize attack innocent people that have been surveilled by NSA and COINTELPRO-based domestic terrorism on unwitting and non-consenting American citizens. The scam goes like this, random people, or people who are dissidents or whistleblowers are purposely mislabeled as “terrorists” and put on an Enemies List, which is then turned over to Defense Contractors to target under perverted interpretations of NDAA and PAA. This allows them to engage the Military and Law Enforcement in either the active harassment and torture of individuals illegally targeted for fraudulent cause, or it gives the Defense Contractors carte blanche to commit criminal assault upon innocent citizens while demanding (unconstitutionally) that Police stand down and do nothing to help their victims. Please read the full statement here. Please Act Now To Stop These Crimes Against Humanity in the USA and Worldwide To stop these crimes against humanity we, the undersigned, request that you immediately: Stop all of these surveillance, testing, and experimentation programs. Stop and revoke all mandates permitting the US military to test weapons on citizens. Repeal and revoke all civil and military directives which permit non-consensual experimentation on Americans. Call out the National Guard to confiscate all portable EMF-weapons and radar/sonic/scalar surveillance devices, and immediately haul off to prison anyone – including Feds, law enforcement, etc., found with them as they violate many many sections of 18 USC in regard to weapons of mass destruction. Freeze all programs of surveillance being run by any and every agency in the DOJ and Homeland Security apparatus. Force the open publication of the list of names of all people who have been targeted with organized stalking, EMF, implants, toxic injections, em weapons, advancchnology nano weapons, mind control, remote drug delivery, sleep deprivation, ruinations of innocent Targeted Individuals, criminal fusion center killers working with state police to stalk, frame up, and terrorize attack innocent people that have been under surveillance by NSA, gag letters and neuroweapons by agencies at the federal, state, and local level for the past forty years. Compel disclosure of the medical parameters of these classified, covert, special access surveillance and torture programs from all Universities and research institutions, all Defense and Intelligence contractors, departments, and agencies. Compel disclosure to each victim of his/her file containing what experiments have been conducted, what has been injected or implanted, what nanotechnology has been administered, and provide immediate, fully-compensated medical help in scanning/implant removal, radiation-damage treatment, & taking all other necessary medical/health measures against the long-term consequences of these crimes. Fully re-imburse to victims all medical costs and family funeral expenses sustained during the course of these torture programs, and plan to provide continuous compensation for all victims’ health expenses until death. Cut funding for all surveillance programs currently being run on named American citizens. Cut all covert operations funding for any and every agency, in particular the CIA. Compel mainstream media to fully and openly detail these programs of torture on citizens. Root out all personnel employed in these programs, starting from the top. Set in motion a Congressional investigation, to fully uncover and disclose details of these programs. Dismantle all agencies and military groups whose record shows shameless participation in these crimes against humanity. Work closely with your counterparts and with agencies abroad to ensure the same results of restoration of human rights and freedoms, worldwide. These crimes against humanity need to be stopped if the United States of America wants to retain its national resilience and keep the goodwill of its partners worldwide. You have an opportunity today to set right many historic wrongs. Much is made of America’s history of slavery. Yet this reality on the ground today shows us, that with the stealth weapons of Electronic Warfare and Neurowarfare, slavery has entered a new phase. You have said: “There should be no fear — we are protected, and we will always be protected. We will be protected by the great men and women of our military and law enforcement and, most importantly, we are protected by God. …We will make America safe again.” –President Donald J. Trump, Inauguration Day Address, 1/20/2017 But there are NO laws on the books today in the USA—land of the free and home of the brave—to prevent non-consensual experimentation on humans. Americans today are enslaved and are exporting this medieval travesty into every corner of the world. Your children and grandchildren are just as much at risk as ours. Please act today to put an end to these horrific, shameful crimes against humanity which are tearing apart our society.
Repeal SB27 CALIFORNIA antibiotics
Sb27 places a HUGE financial burden onto small farm owners. Goats, sheep and chickens are harder animals for a vet to diagnose or treat. Without proper access to medications, our animals will suffer, or die! These same medications are used by rabbit breeders to support healthy animals that become ill with things a VET could never treat. The breeders specifically know their animals and deserve to humanly treat them without huge costs of a vet. Many sheep and goat owners need quick access to penicillin to treat a range of deadly diseases, such as Listeriosis, infections from animal attacks or fights, and pneumonia. Simple treatments will cost the average small breeder an extra 4,200 per farm with only 30 goats and a farm of 70 will be 7,000. I am speaking up. I created this petition after loosing my goat to Circling Disease, which is deadly with out immediate penicillin treatments around the clock. There are to many flaws in this bill for the small farms located across California.

We Stand United - Support Comprehensive Immigration Reform
Would it surprise you to learn that illegal immigrants have the potential to ruin our country – if they leave? In fact, mass deportation would abruptly collapse our agriculture, construction and hospitality industries leading to a downward spiral of our economy. Our government’s failure to address the needs of our economy through legal immigration has led to this issue. The refusal to create legal pathways to citizenship is driven primarily by fear, emotional reaction and misinformation. So how do we address our immigration problems? More on that later. I’d like to share a few facts about illegal immigrants. Currently, America’s population includes 11.5 million illegal immigrants, or 3.5% of our population. The Migration Policy Institute has estimated that 2.5 million live in California, which, at 6.3% of the state’s population, is the highest percentage of illegal immigrants in the country. A large part of our state’s economy is generated through agriculture, construction and tourism –three industries that rely heavily on the labor of unauthorized workers. Those who point to the economic burden brought on by illegal immigrants tend to overlook the daily costs, such as higher prices for homes, groceries and basic services, that each of us would incur without their everyday contributions. As an example of the economic impact of cracking down on illegal immigration in California, we need look no further than the neighboring state of Arizona. The legislative drive to aggressively target illegal immigrants in Arizona in recent years, including E-Verify laws and the controversial SB 1070, which allows profiling of those who raise “reasonable suspicion,” resulted in a 40% decline in their population of undocumented workers within five years of implementation. Some of these programs are especially difficult and expensive to implement, placing unnecessary burdens on small business owners. Moody’s Analytics found that despite the new openings in the job market, less than 10% of jobs formerly held by illegal immigrants were taken over by American workers. Likewise, Moody’s reports that the legislation has not altered the unemployment issues in the state; the overall rate remains higher than those of its neighbors. Some commentators tend to paint illegal immigrants as “takers”: people who come to our country with their hands extended, looking for taxpayer-funded social benefits. I believe the opposite is true; the vast majority of unauthorized workers come here looking for work, not handouts. It is estimated by the Institute on Taxation & Economic Policy (ITEP) that illegal immigrants pay approximately $11 billion in taxes. These taxes directly fund programs like Social Security. Since many of these workers must use fabricated or illegally-purchased social security numbers in order to qualify for work, they will never be able to collect on these benefits. Are most illegal immigrants in this country criminals? In reality, most illegal immigrants avoid criminal activity because of the fear of deportation. Nationwide, illegal immigrants make up less than 5% of the prison population, and of those 5%, many were incarcerated due to immigration violations rather than violent crimes. By creating a pathway to citizenship, we would actually be able to combat crime more effectively by focusing our law enforcement resources on targeting dangerous, violent criminals rather than undocumented families. We cannot afford for our country to follow the path of countries like Japan and Germany, who suffer from stagnation and population decline. Immigration drives the growth of our working-age population as our native-born population is aging and shrinking due to a decline in birth rates. As a result, we are reliant on immigration to support our entitlement programs; without immigrants, the already murky future of Social Security and Medicare would be far bleaker. It is important to note, that the net migration from Mexico to the U.S. has declined in recent years, meaning more people are returning to Mexico than coming to our country. Our solution must be three-fold; first we protect our borders. we have to recognize that building a $25 billion-dollar wall will partially stop the illegal flow of goods and people. Increasing the use of drones, satellite and other surveillance methods, should be considered if we are to get serious about illegal crossings .we need to humanely address those who are currently here illegally, while modifying our immigration system to better benefit our economic needs. second, we must allow for a process that allows illegal immigrants the chance to move out of the shadows. If apprehended, current law requires deportation of those here illegally and denies them re-entry for 10 years. Deport those who have violent criminal histories, and allow those who remain to become citizens. Third, our immigration program must be updated to reflect the current needs of our country. The United States is home to 5% of the world’s population, yet is responsible for 25% of the global economy. To maintain this edge for decades to come, we must regularly evaluate our needs, determine if our workforce needs investors, manual laborers, or innovators, and adjust our immigration policy accordingly. We must also team up with Canada and Mexico to maintain our economic force against the rising powers across the Pacific, noting that Mexico is currently California’s largest trading partner. What is clear to me, is that our current immigration system is broken. This week, Homeland Security Secretary John Kelly told an audience at George Washington University the following, “If lawmakers do not like the laws that we enforce, that we are charged to enforce, that we are sworn to enforce, then they should have the courage and the skill to change those laws. Otherwise, they should shut up and support the men and women on the front lines.” It is necessary that our Countries leaders step over the division of party lines and work together to bring a solution that is in the best interest of our Country and the people who desire to contribute to the U.S. As an immigrant from Iran, I have first-hand experience navigating the immigration system nearly 40 years ago with my family. The laborious process was one that I was happy to undertake in order to become a proud U.S. citizen. I cherish this country and community along with all that it has afforded my family and I. For my family, and for much of the world, America represents opportunity, hope and equality. These are the values that continue to attract the world’s best minds. These are the values that have allowed our relatively young country to become one of the most powerful and desirable to live in. Ronald Reagan understood this when he said “In America our origins matter less than our destination, and that is what democracy is all about.” Unfortunately, in today’s climate I am frequently reminded that if we were attempting to immigrate to America today, it would be far more challenging for my family and I to pursue a path to citizenship especially considering our country of origin. Ultimately, we will be judged as a society not on how we have treated the powerful and privileged, but the poor and the hopeless. Our visions of success and happiness should coexist with the values of human dignity, compassion and justice. God has blessed this country with so much abundance and security-- it would be a shame to disallow those with the means and brain power to stimulate our economy, create jobs, and add to our competitive edge within the global market. In a world where the movement of goods, money and information is fluid, the movement and migration of people is ultimately inevitable. Many members of congress recognize that bringing the 12 million undocumented out of the shadows of unlawfulness is not only good for our economy, it’s also good for our souls. we should support their efforts in fixing this broken system.
