Steve Bannon's racist, anti-semitic, misogynistic views don't belong in the White House
President-elect Donald Trump has just appointed his campaign CEO and chairman of Breitbart News, Stephen Bannon, as chief White House strategist and senior counselor. Trump’s team said the position will be equal to the Chief of Staff -- making Steve Bannon one of the most powerful and influential people in the world. The appointment has drawn outrage from all sides of the political spectrum. Under Bannon’s leadership, Breitbart News has become the online destination for white nationalism, anti semitism, xenophobia, sexism, the spreading of lies and conspiracy theories, and hateful rhetoric. Steve Bannon himself has been accused of horrible behavior. He referred to feminists as “a bunch of dykes” and reportedly didn’t want his children to go to school with “a bunch of jews.” Former employee Ben Shapiro left Breitbart News because he said Bannon was a “vindictive, nasty figure.” Bannon’s abuse has even turned physical. In 1996, he was arrested for domestic violence. His ex-wife feared for their children, and reported Bannon threatened her and the kids if she appeared in court against him. She believed him and didn’t want to put her children in more danger. Bannon’s ex wife didn’t appear and the charges were dropped. President-elect Trump can do better. Our country has a deep well of talent to help him lead our country. There is no reason to select a figure like Steve Bannon. Bannon's vitriol and divisiveness have no place in the White House.

Allow Transgender People Into the U.S. Military
On Wednesday, July 26, 2017, Donald Trump announced that transgender individuals would no longer be accepted or allowed into the U.S. Military because their cost is a "burden." This is extremely disgraceful and an insult to all those who have already given their lives for this country. This is not equality, and this is not "supporting the LGBT community," as he said he does. This is utterly transphobic. Many people who served are going to be left jobless, and many others will no longer be able to fulfill their dreams. This is not okay, and this should not be legal. Trans people are still people.
Get GOP Rep. Steve King to Resign
GOP Rep Steve King has been a long time supporter of the abuse, torture, and mistreatment of animals. Most recently, he has touched on dogfighting (this is not the first time he has). His reasoning to make dogfighting legal, is: since humans are allowed to fight, why not allow dogs as well? King said "It’s wrong to rate animals above human beings." But, last time I checked- humans are not forced to fight to the death, for the humor and enjoyment of a crowd. Humans have a choice. As I stated in the first sentence, King supports the abuse of animals- not just dogs. In 2010, King tweeted that he had chased and shot a raccoon, because the poor creature had tried to enter his house during a violent storm. This is just one of the dozens of times the congressman has publicly supported the death of animals, of all sorts. He has also voted against bills that would make the abuse and mistreatment of animals a larger violation. Sign this petition to say NO to the torture, abuse and mistreatment of animals, and pledge not to vote for Steve King during the next midterm elections.
Protect the Endangered Species Act
President Nixon, a Republican, signed The Endangered Species Act (ESA) into law in 1973. The ESA provides for the conservation and protection of ecosystems upon which threatened and endangered species of fish, plants, and wildlife depend. Republicans in Congress are targeting the Endangered Species Act for repeal. Their goal is to place the mining, drilling, and logging industries above the interests of the planet that sustains us all. Repealing the ESA has been a Republican goal for decades. Over the past 8 years alone, they’ve pushed dozens of bills attempting to rollback the law or exclude specific species from its protection -- all with the goal of opening up their various habitats for logging, oil & gas development, or massive water relocation projects. All of those efforts have been stopped in the past. The Endangered Species Act (ESA) has been one of our nation's most effective and important environmental laws. Repealing the ESA to allow industry to exploit vital habitats would be extremely detrimental to the ecosystems supporting some of the most vulnerable species of plants, wildlife, and fish in our nation. But Republicans believe otherwise. In fact, the Republican chairman of the House Natural Resource Committee Rob Bishop has said of the ESA: "It has never been used for the rehabilitation of species. It's been used for control of the land." He went on to say that he "would love to invalidate" the law. President Trump hasn’t taken a specific position on this rollback effort -- that’s why it’s important that we send a message to him and the Republican-dominated Congress right now. Please sign and share this petition today and help us say ‘Hands off the Endangered Species Act’!
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
Make all protestors accountable for a permit for exact location and officers needed.
Stop allowing protestors to occupy neighborhood streets without proper permits and paying for police to accompany them. In Philadelphia there was a group of people on Facebook telling everyone to come to a police officers house because he killed a man who was fleeing from him with a illegal gun. Meanwhile, the street was filled with police officers who were being called pigs and other foul language was being used via a megaphone. Philadelphia home owners have had our property tax raised numerous times in recent years. Along with many other things being taxed. And we should not have to feel unsafe because these protests going on today continue to get out of hand. There are young children in the community watching and listening to the rediculous things these men were shouting, along with a community of people that did not want this on their street. I know everyone has a right to freedom of speech, but when it comes to these protests, why should we have to fund people from other cities? Why should we have to fund criminals rights but not our officers who serve us? Why should we have to allow our officers that are so limited be taken away from our neighbhoods because someone wants to stand outside screaming profanities through a megaphone. This needs to end somewhere! We can not afford to keep being taxed for nothing! They closed our schools, taxed cigarettes repeatedly, taxed home owners repeatedly, and even soda. It is time to make others pay for the services we are taxed for, when it is not an emergency.
Support our 45th President, Donald J. Trump
This is to let the Clinton supporters know that our vote counts too. Both candidates knew the process going into the election and Clinton, knowing the process, has conceded. To the Electorals: We ask that you vote according to your state’s consensus, with tradition, and within the law. The citizens of the United States have voted and now the electoral process should be completed as promised. We want our 45th President, Donald J. Trump, to know that we support him.
Donald Trump Must Resign the GOP Nomination
With the Washington Post's revelation of a video of Donald Trump joking about his freedom to sexually assault women, the deepest concerns of conservatives about the GOP's presidential candidate have been yet again confirmed, and in the most unambiguous terms yet.The conservative case against Trump has always been strong, despite many Americans' opposition to a Clinton presidency, but the inexcusable assault on the dignity of women and the maniacal abuse of fame and power displayed in this video demonstrate in no uncertain terms that he is utterly unqualified to hold the highest office in the land. In addition, his pathetic apology "if anyone was offended" reveals that he believes he has done no wrong, except maybe hurt his brand.Donald Trump believes that the American people are too stupid, too weak, and too afraid to vote against him. He is counting on GOP voters to be so opposed to Clinton that we will vote for Trump no matter how many times he lies, how corrupt he is, how immoral he is, and how terrible his policies are. As Trump has bragged, we have "no choice" but to vote for him because of the Supreme Court nominations, and he could shoot someone and we'd still vote for him. Do not allow this disgusting, incompetent fool make a mockery out of our great nation, the GOP, our faith, our system of government, women, minorities, and the disabled.Demand that the Republican National Committee, the GOP, donors, Super-PACs, and every politician and leader and pundit who has endorsed Trump to rescind their endorsements, cancel their funding, and call on Trump to resign his nomination.
Talladega College Band going to the Inaugural Parade.
As a supporter of the Talladega College Band I am in agreement that the Talladega College Band should participate in The 58th Presidential Inaugural Parade. We believe that this parade is not about politics it’s about seeing first hand the process of a transition. Its not to support of no political party its about the experience that the students will obtain. We are not one-track thinkers and believe everyone is entitled to the own beliefs. However we are in support of The United States of America. Please sign to show your support. This petition will be delivered to Mr. Harry L. Coaxum Chairman, Board of Trustees and Dr. Billy Hawkins, Talladega College President.
Expand the post-9/11 caregiver program to all U.S. veterans
Many of our military veterans have health issues stemming from their service to our country in foreign wars. These issues often require ongoing caregiver assistance. Veterans who served after 9/11 have received the most generous benefits, which has left our other veterans scrounging to cover needed care. Senator Patty Murray’s latest attempt to bridge this disparity, the Military and Veteran Caregiver Improvement Act, has been stuck in Senate committee since 2015. This act is important because so many of the caregiver programs are geared toward post- 9/11 military veterans. Meanwhile, the veterans of our wars in Korea, Vietnam, the Persian Gulf, and others have been forced to rely on their family and friends for needed care. Many spouses are faced with the tough choice to put their loved ones into a nursing home so they can get a job to help support their family. Others, like my own mother, stay at home to care for their veteran and are forced to scrape and scrounge every single penny to make ends meet. Veterans from all eras have sacrificed to serve and protect our nation. They have seen and experienced things that few of us could even imagine. And many of them have been exposed to weapon materials that are extremely toxic and dangerous -- leaving them with ailments that plague them for the rest of their lives. We have to do more to care for these heroes. If you believe that our veterans are valuable and deserve the resources necessary to ensure a decent quality of life. If you agree, please sign and share this petition to tell Congress to pass the Military and Veteran Caregiver Improvement Act, or a bill similar in wording.
