The time to EXPEL Sen. Josh Hawley - MO from the United States Senate is NOW!
The time to EXPEL Missouri Sen. Josh Hawley from the Senate has come. 1) Missouri Republican Sen. Josh Hawley should be immediately EXPELLED from the U.S. Senate. He has violated his oath, stoked a violent mob of domestic terrorists and attempted to tear down our democracy. Hawley was soliciting campaign funds while our nation's Capitol was under attack and people were dying. He is a despicable, self-serving, deplorable, insurrectionist. 2) As reported in the KC Star, Missouri Republican Sen. Josh Hawley became the first senator to say he’ll object to the certification of President-elect Joe Biden’s Electoral College victory when Congress meets on Jan. 6 to accept the results of the presidential election. Hawley cited unsubstantiated claims of voter fraud and accused the state of Pennsylvania of failing to adhere to its election laws by extending the deadline for mail-in ballots, an argument that has repeatedly been rejected by federal courts. He held up the Electoral College Vote Certification process twice with his unfounded conspiracy theories, offering zero evidence to support his claims. 3) Josh Hawley lied when he tweeted that a "candle-light vigil for democracy" at his home in Virginia as "Antifa scumbags came to our place in DC and threatened my wife and newborn daughter, who can’t travel. They screamed threats, vandalized, and tried to pound open our door." Video evidence shows that nothing of the sort happened. The dozen or so protestors chanted, sang and prayed outside his home, but exhibited no violence, threats or vandalism of any sort. 4) Sen. Josh Hawley doesn't even live in Missouri. A review of property records shows that the first-term Republican is no longer a Missouri homeowner and that he is registered to vote at his sister’s home in Ozark, MO, while he is in-between homes in the state. He has alternately told the press he is living with his parents in Springfield, MO. Hawley owns a $1.3 million house in the Northern Virginia suburbs of Washington, D.C., where he spends most of his time with his wife, Erin Hawley, and their three children. 5) Two separate MO audits found that in Hawley's short tenure as Missouri’s attorney general there were many paperwork and management problems that may have cost taxpayers unnecessary amounts of money. Taxpayer-paid staff working in former Attorney General Josh Hawley’s office met with his political consultants, perhaps more than a dozen times, in the months before he launched his U.S. Senate campaign in 2017. Several instances of travel related abuses noted that Hawley used a state vehicle and a driver for some trips without documenting the purpose of the trip. One cited example was that a driver told the auditor that on Dec. 16, 2017, he drove Sen. Hawley and his wife, Erin, to Kansas City for a Chiefs football game. 6) Former U.S. Sen. John C. Danforth on Thursday, following the domestic terrorist attacks on the U.S. Capitol building, said to the St. Louis Post-Dispatch: "Supporting Josh and trying so hard to get him elected to the Senate was the worst mistake I ever made in my life. Yesterday was the physical culmination of the long attempt (by Hawley and others) to foment a lack of public confidence in our democratic system. It is very dangerous to America to continue pushing this idea that government doesn’t work and that voting was fraudulent." Josh Hawley is seditious and self-serving. Hawley has blood on his hands for fomenting rioting at the U.S. Capitol. He is dishonest and is not upholding the oaths and ethics of his elected offices. Sen. Hawley tried to subvert and undermine the Will of the People by overturning the results of the 2020 Presidential Election. Time to EXPEL Josh Hawley. NOW!
Reopen the investigation of LaVena Johnson's death
LaVena Johnson was a 19-year-old U.S. Army Private deployed in Iraq when she was tortured, raped, and murdered by her fellow soldiers. The U.S. Department of Defense ruled her death a suicide, but provided no explanations for her physical wounds: deep bite marks, loose teeth, a black eye, scratch marks on her neck, a broken nose, third-degree burns on her hands that were covered by glued-on white gloves, acid poured on her vagina, a bullet wound in her head, and more. The military's autopsy only reported injuries to her lip and teeth and scratch marks on her neck. A second autopsy paid for by CBS revealed that "LaVena's neck was broken. Parts of her vagina, tongue, and anus had been removed." The Army said LaVena shot herself in the head with a government-issued M16 rifle, which was more than 3 feet long. LaVena was 5'1". The bullet wound was on the left side of her head and she was right-handed. The bullet wound looked more consistent with one caused by a 9 mm, and the bullet "was never found." Residue tests conducted by the military suggest no evidence of LaVena actually touching the M16, and there was a trail of blood outside her tent. There have been multiple articles, podcasts, and documentaries about LaVena and her death, but the military still has not reopened her case. Because this is a presumed violent murder and sexual assault, there is no statute of limitations applied to LaVena's death. We can still get justice for LaVena and prosecute her murderers if we reopen her case and demand further investigation into this obvious foul play.
Put Intersex and Transgender Education into Sex Ed Curriculum
Transphobia is rampant in our current society. In the BLM movement, transgender black women are the most targeted for hate crimes. Black transgender women have an average lifespan of thirty. According to the Human Rights Campaign, In 2019, at least 27 deaths of transgender people were recorded, with a majority of black transgender women. That number has almost doubled this year alone, with a total number of 43 deaths. Consider this stat with the understanding that transgender people only make up 1% of the population. It is clear we need change on both fronts. As we fight for justice within our judicial system, we must also consider how all of this came to be. Understanding that lack of education can cause fear and hate towards a group of people is the first step to uprooting culturally ingrained hated. Violence and discrimination towards transgender people, or those who were born outside of the realm of the binary genders, is a learned behavior based on ignorance. By teaching to unlearn these behaviors, we can begin to make change. In health class, previously and presently, students learn about the anatomy and science of their genitalia and how to have protected sex. That being said, it is statistically proven that 1.7% of people are intersex. That means at least one person each school year is not getting an education. That is nearly one million high school students as of 2020 who are not getting a proper sex education. Add on those who are transgender, and it becomes 1.53 million in the United States. This does not account for those whose lives were detrimentally affected by a lack of education, and now spend their lives with an internalized hate towards these groups. Educating students on their transgender and intersex peers will be a significant and important step in erasing hatred from our schools. Proposed topics of learning include: The different ways someone can be biologically intersex, how to practice safe sex with varying sexes, the effects of hormones on the human body, the science of gender dysphoria including non-binary transgenders, the difference between social and physical dysphoria, the difference between sexuality and gender, and gender confirming clothing items, procedures, and/or hormones and hormone replacement therapy. It is not the education system’s job to teach why someone might want to change their gender, but it is their job to give children a Sex Education, whatever their gender or sex may be. If we do not begin change in our schools, this problem will continue. Transgender and intersex hate crimes will continue. We need change to begin at the start of these learned behaviors and remove the ignorance on the subject, so that hate towards these groups will subside. It is imperative to add to the Sex Ed and Health curriculum some part that acknowledges both of these groups, because we want to have a progressive curriculum. If you are not apart of this change, then you are allowing this to continue. Please support intersex and transgender rights by giving your students the rights to an education.
79 year old blind man sentenced to 10 years prison for marijuana farm
Charles F. White, 79, was sentenced in 2017 to 10 years in prison after he pleaded guilty to manufacturing more than 1,000 marijuana plants at his home in rural Polk County. I care about this because our justice system is flawed. Instead if being with family in the few years he has left he's stuck in prison for a plant that is no harm to humanity that actually cures cancer along with many other sicknesses an illnesses. It is now legal but since he got sentenced before the law passed to lessen sentences of those who caught marijuana cases he can't get out sooner. This man has not hurt anyone while child molesters walk free a 79 year old half blind man will spend probably what's left of his life in prison. We cant fix the world but we can start by fixing the justice system. He's no threat to society so set him free!!
As a community we demand answers on why Kcp&L keeps applying rate increases. Also, we want the new budget billing system reviewed. It does not make sense how the system calls it a budget billing system when they review statements every month and either increase or decrease based on usage. That is not a true budget billing system. As a community we want to know why, and how, it costs the local community more to produce energy in the summer months than it does in the winter during less day light. Lets stand together as a community and get to the bottom of this. Where is our hard earned money really going?
