Free Internet for Iran
The Iranian people have launched their uprising in order to topple the Islamic regime and improve their living standards. The clerical regime, by imposing severe filtering, aims to restrict the free flow of information as a way to crack down on them and stifle their dissent. This 2 million petition calls on President Trump to provide Iranians with a free and fast internet through satellite so they can take their destiny in their own hands.
Losing the American Dream: Immigrant family from Holland being forced out of the country!
Please Call your Congressman now and tell them to cosponsor the E2 Visa Improvement Act, HR 2124 to help the Mulder's and other families in this situation! www.callmycongress.com The Mulder family immigrated legally to the United States from Holland in 2001 on an E2 Investor Visa to achieve their dream of owning and operating a family dairy. They have been here ever since and have created a wonderful life. They are a hardworking, honest family, have supported the surrounding rural communities in many ways, pay taxes, provide jobs, have many friends and are productive citizens. They were even MN Farm Family of the Year in 2013. Now that their sons are turning 21, they are being forced to make a decision. A decision that just isn't fair. Garion, their oldest had to leave last summer and now Kelsey, their youngest must leave this summer when he turns 21. The type of visa they came here with does not allow a clear path to citizenship and forces the children out through a process known as “aging out”. Garion and Kelsey have been here since they were 3 & 2 years old. They had only briefly visited Holland since coming here and consider the United States as their country. They attended school, formed life-long friendships, worked on the family dairy and love the rural life. Now, because their children will have to leave it no longer makes sense for their parents to stay. They built the dairy farm in the hopes of a better life and a dream of passing it on to their children someday. But because of a little-known clause in the E2 visa, one which they have worked with immigration lawyers on for many years trying to resolve, that dream will likely die without intervention. This petition is drawing attention to the problem and we need to continue to fight to resolve the issues with the E2 Investment Visa. Provide a clear path to citizenship and protect the children from the “aging out” process. There are so many families, not just the Mulder’s, affected by the problems with the E2 Investment Visa and there are others working on this issue. There is another petition out there titled “Improve the Dream” and it answers the issues with the E2 Investment Visa through legislation. This legislation will help all of the children who are legally here by adding them to the Dream Act and the DACA program. They already meet the criteria and we need to make that happen! To make this happen we need to keep these petitions going so that our government hears us and legislation happens! Please sign our petition and then go to the second petition and read the information they provide and listen to the wonderful video and sign their petition. I have included the link for that petition below. This family and many others deserve to stay in America. Let's fight for them! Please click on the red SIGN THE PETITION button to sign our petition. Then come back and click on the link below to sign the other petition.

Que le devuelvan la Hacienda Santa Monica a los niños pobres de Panamá.
En Panamá hay medio millón de niños pobres, 200,000 niños viven en extrema pobreza. Muchos de estos niños solo tienen una madre que sirve como Madre y Padre a la vez. Estas guerreras Panameñas se levantan todos los días a las 4am con una sonrisa en cara para tomar un pésimo sistema de transporte y llegar a un trabajo donde les pagan mal. Ese es el Panamá que vivimos, el Panamá de dos países, el Panamá de los que tienen dinero y el Panamá de los que no tienen. Se acabo la clase media. Se acabo la justicia, y se acabo la solidaridad. Vivimos en un país donde las leyes se aplican para los pobres y no para los ricos. Pero de vez en cuando llega a Panamá un hombre rico, con un corazón grande. Esa es la historia del Sr. Charles Lucom, un hombre Norte Americano que hizo su plata con mucho esfuerzo y sudor en Panamá. Y cuando murió, decidió dejarle en su testamento a los Niños Pobres de Panamá un regalo. Les regaló la Hacienda Santa Mónica. La Hacienda Santa Mónica queda en Antón y colinda con Buenaventura y Juan Hombrón. La Hacienda tiene alrededor de 700 hectáreas de terreno (que valen más de $800 millones) y se le fue regalada a los niños pobres de Panamá por el Sr Lucom como dice su testamento. Como los niños pobres de Panamá no cuentan con un representante legal, el Sr Alberto Vallarino y su pandilla de abogados deciden asaltar a los 500,000 niños pobres de Panamá y robarles la Hacienda Santa Mónica. El Sr Vallarino con sus secuaces utilizaron el corrupto sistema Judicial Panameño y cambiaron el Testamento del Sr. Lucom y se quedaron con Hacienda Santa Mónica. Queremos que se haga justicia y le devuelvan la Hacienda Santa Mónica a los niños pobres de Panamá como lo quiso el Sr. Lucom en su testamento. Gracias, Los niños pobres de Panamá.
Unrig It 2020
One thing united American voters this election year: the growing frustration with a political system that is broken, rigged, unfair – choose your favorite adjective. The leadership of both parties is in shambles, and for the first time in recent history, the chair positions of the RNC and DNC are simultaneously vacant. We are calling on the incoming chairs of the DNC & RNC to heed the concerns of American voters -- who continue to leave both parties in droves -- and open the primaries in all 50 states so that we never have a repeat of the 2016 election. It’s time that our politics stop being controlled by hyper-partisan party loyalists, special interests, and establishment talking heads. Opening the primaries would allow for a much more diverse range of candidates, discussions, and policies; it would give voters back control over our politics. As a country, we need a new way forward, one that unites Americans with different beliefs and backgrounds. We need an electoral system that makes that possible. It's time for change. #UnRigIt2020
Reenact the Flag Protection Act - American Flag Protection Act 2018
American Flag Protection Act 2018(a) Definition Of Flag Of The United States.—In this section, the term ‘flag of the United States’ means any flag of the United States, or any part thereof, made of any substance, in any size, in a form that is commonly displayed as a flag and that would be taken to be a flag by the reasonable observer. “(b) Actions Promoting Violence.—Any person who destroys or damages a flag of the United States with the primary purpose and intent to incite or produce imminent violence or a breach of the peace, and under circumstances in which the person knows that it is reasonably likely to produce imminent violence or a breach of the peace, shall be fined not more than $100,000, imprisoned not more than 1 year, or both. “(c) Flag Burning.—Any person who shall intentionally threaten or intimidate any person or group of persons by burning, or causing to be burned, a flag of the United States, and / or under circumstances in which the person knows that it is reasonably likely to produce imminent violence or a breach of the peace, shall be fined not more than $100,000, imprisoned for not more than 1 year, or both. “(d) Damaging A Flag Belonging To The United States.—Any person who steals or knowingly converts to his or her use, or to the use of another, a flag of the United States belonging to the United States, and who intentionally destroys or damages that flag, shall be fined not more than $250,000, imprisoned not more than 2 years, or both. “(e) Damaging A Flag Of Another On Federal Land.—Any person who, within any lands reserved for the use of the United States, or under the exclusive or concurrent jurisdiction of the United States, steals or knowingly converts to his or her use, or to the use of another, a flag of the United States belonging to another person, and who intentionally destroys or damages that flag, shall be fined not more than $250,000, imprisoned not more than 2 years, or both. Excluding individuals that are attempting to rescue or protect the flag of the United States from damage, misuse and/or desecration. “(f) Construction.—Nothing in this section shall be construed to indicate an intent on the part of Congress to deprive any State, territory, or possession of the United States, or the Commonwealth of Puerto Rico of jurisdiction over any offense over which it would have jurisdiction in the absence of this section.”. This act excludes clothing, with the exception of which portrays or indicates burning of and/or desecration of the flag of the United States of America, with the exception of artistic interpretation that does not have the intent of or perceivable intent of being a desecration of the flag of the United States of America. (g) Technical And Conforming Amendment.—The chapter analysis for chapter 33 of title 18, United States Code, is amended by striking the item relating to section 700 and inserting the following: If any provision of this Act, or the application of such a provision to any person or circumstance, is held to be unconstitutional, the remainder of the Act, and the application of this Act to any other person or circumstance, shall not be affected by such holding.That any desecration of the flag is not protected by the freedom of speech as stated in the following landmark cases and bill, as the burning or desecration of the flag would indicate either a plot to over throw the government, intended harm on certain members of the government, be considered obscene, be considered fighting words, lacks serious literary, artistic, political, or scientific value and / or tends to lead to or incite a breach of the peace and could likely provoke a violent reaction : Dennis v. United States that the First Amendment doesn’t protect the speech of people plotting to overthrow the government.Bethel School District v. Fraser upheld the right of a school to suspend a student for making an obscene speech. Hazelwood School District v. Kuhlmeier, 1988, supported a school’s right to censor student newspapers. However, many states are now passing laws to grant broader First Amendment protections to student speech. Chaplinsky v. New Hampshire (1942), the Supreme Court held that speech is unprotected if it constitutes "fighting words". Fighting words, as defined by the Court, is speech that "tend[s] to incite an immediate breach of the peace" by provoking a fight, so long as it is a "personally abusive [word] which, when addressed to the ordinary citizen, is, as a matter of common knowledge, inherently likely to provoke a violent reaction" Miller v. California, came up with a three-part definition of obscene material. *A work is legally considered obscene if an average person, applying contemporary community standards, would find that the material appeals to prurient (appealing to sexual desire) interest.*the work depicts or describes, in an offensive way, sexual conduct or excretory functions, specifically defined by applicable state law.*taken as a whole, the material lacks serious literary, artistic, political, or scientific value. House Bill 347 authorized Secret Service agents to arrest anyone protesting in the president’s or vice president’s proximity. They also have this authority at National Special Security Events. These events have included state occasions, of course, but also basketball championships, the Academy Awards, Olympic events, and the Super Bowl. A conviction can result in up to 10 years in a federal prison (another place where your freedom of speech is limited).
Unhomeless the Homeless in California
Declare Homelessness State of Emergency in California L.A. County Homeless On any given night, there are over 148,000 homeless people in California - 23% of the entire nation’s homeless population. This year’s Count revealed that 23% of the unsheltered people experiencing homelessness—more than 9,200 people—were homeless for the first time last year. The majority (53%) cited economic hardship as the cause. Los Angeles County has the second largest population of homeless people of any region in the United States, according to a government report released Wednesday. In Los Angeles, 600,000 people are considered "severely rent burdened," which means they spend half their income on rent. More than 8,000 people became homeless here for the first time last year, according to the 2017 Los Angeles Homeless Services Authority report. "We are reaching levels of inequality that we have not seen since the Gilded Age," said Tracy Rosenthal of the Los Angeles Tenants Union. The union helps organize tenant boycotts against things like rent increases and gentrification. Los Angeles County's total — 55,188 — was behind only New York City's 76,501, according to the 2017 Annual Homeless Assessment Report to Congress by the U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development. However, 95 percent of people experiencing homelessness in New York City were sheltered, the report found, while only 25 percent of those experiencing homelessness in Los Angeles were sheltered in 2017. The HUD report findings were similar to the results of the 2017 Greater Los Angeles Homeless Count released in June by the Los Angeles Homeless Services Authority, which put the county's homeless total at 57,794 — an increase of 23 percent over the previous count. The HUD report found that on one night in January, nearly one of every four people experiencing homelessness in the United States was in New York City or Los Angeles. According to the report, overall homelessness increased nationwide this year for the first time in seven years, by slightly under 1 percent compared to 2016. On a given night across the country, 553,742 people were homeless, with nearly two-thirds housed in shelters or transitional housing programs and one- third living on the streets, according to the report L.A.'s big increase in homelessness had a significant impact on the national numbers. Between 2016 and 2017, individual homelessness increased by 9 percent (15,540 people) in the nation's major cities. Los Angeles accounted for 60 percent of this increase. According to the report, Los Angeles County ranked: - second nationally in the percent of unsheltered homeless, at 84.3 percent; - first in the number of individuals who are homeless, at 47,082; - first in the number of unaccompanied homeless youth at 5,163; and first in the number of homeless veterans (4,476) and percentage of unsheltered veterans (76.1 percent). California had 134,278 homeless people, and while the Golden State has the nation's largest population, the rate of 34 homeless residents per 10,000 people was twice the national average, according to the report. Of those, 68 percent were living on the streets, by far the worst percentage. The report said half the nation's homeless live in California, New York, Florida, Texas or Washington. Counties across the state are facing a pervasive and deepening homeless crisis that imminently endangers the health and safety of tens of thousands of residents, including veterans, women, children, LGBT, youth, persons with disabilities and seniors. Nowhere is this more evident than in Los Angeles County at least 134,278 men, women and children -- 10,000 to 12,000 in Downtown, including more than 8,000 parents and children in the San Fernando Valley alone -- are without homes.More than 53,000 homeless people, or 40 percent of the state’s total, live in Los Angeles County. That number is up from about 36,000 just six years ago. There are beds for less than one third of the homeless in Los Angeles county, comprehensive services are available to far fewer than half, and the county jails are routinely used as a substitution for mental health facilities. In Los Angeles county the tremendous scale of homelessness threatens the economic stability of the entire region by burdening emergency medical services and the social services infrastructure. It is time to treat this crisis like the emergency it truly is. The increasing numbers of displaced homeless people and the lack of ongoing resources to stably re-house them require immediate and extraordinary action. That is why We in LA County are taking the lead in a statewide effort to ask Governor Brown to declare a state of emergency in California to address this growing humanitarian crisis. Please join us! Sign our petition urging to declare the homeless crisis a state of emergency and bring the concerted effort and resources needed to tackle this crisis in a meaningful way. Homelessness, Humanitarianism, Social justice, Human Rights, Economic Justice, Homeless crisis, Affordable housing, Civil Rights, Civil Liberties, and the Right to Live Free of prejudice. No human in our country should be homeless. Let's take the first step together. Everyone deserves a safe place to call home. Then Share this petition with your friends on social media to spread the word even further. Thank you for your support.
