Open Letter to Obama: There is no peaceful transition of power in a foreign-backed coup

CC: Vice President Biden, Senator Sanders, Senator Leahy, Congressman Welch Dear Mr. Obama, You have been a wonderful President so far. Naturally you would prefer to run out the clock, safely disappear, and raise your daughters in peace. But the 35-year backlash against the progress we made in the Sixties is coming to a head as the rapidly-forming Neo-Nazi Party, and they are staging an illegal, foreign-backed coup to take command of the Federal government. So unfortunately you are going to have to man up, one last time. We the People of the United States of America know a few facts: 1) The CIA, FBI, and DNI have concluded that Putin's government expertly hacked our voting system, waged a year-long propaganda blitz designed to divide and conquer the voting public, and in general nullified our 2016 Presidential Election by meddling heavily in it. 2) Even with this mountain of foreign meddling, Trump lost the Presidential Election by a huge margin: nearly three million votes. He "won" on a technicality, but the fact is that he Lost Bigly. 3) Fact #1 is grounds for a number of actions, one of which might be a stern phone call to Putin, but absolutely none of which are allowing Putin's chosen puppet to spend four years in OUR White House. 4) By knowingly handing over the reins to the groomed candidate of foreign-orchestrated coup, especially when, in spite of a tampered-with election, that candidate did not even come close to winning, you would be effectively abandoning your post. You are sworn, as Commander-in-Chief, to protect our Federal government from being manipulated or taken over by foreign powers. I hate to say this, but at this point for you to hide behind any "peaceful transition of power" rhetoric is to despair at best, commit treason at worst. You cannot succumb to this coup attempt by the Neo-Nazi Party, because although they themselves are home-grown, we now know unequivocally that they are backed by a foreign power. There can legally be no "peaceful transition of power" to any foreign-backed puppet government. Therefore it is your duty to protect us from this coup, by any means necessary. Legal, extra-legal, political, using personal charm, whatever. By mounting a foreign-backed illegal coup, the Neo-Nazi Party openly opposes the United States government, and therefore relinquishes the right to quote any laws of the land. When facing an aggressive, bullying, foreign-backed COUP, Mr. Obama, law is void, and you may be as creative as you like. Kindest regards,Heather Kennedy

Petition to Dr. Jill Stein, Maria Svart, Conor Boylan, Bernie Sanders

Create a Progressive Independent Party

Plan A: All progressive parties unite to create the LARGEST progressive voting block in history to propel Bernie Sanders into the White House! Plan B: If Bernie Sanders does not get the Democratic nomination for President, we use our "YUGE" voting block to decide how to utilize our votes for the best progressive outcome possible. Plan C: Unite all parties into one to exponentially grow the progressive movement to all levels of local, state, and national elections to impact the changes necessary to see our common goals in action! The Presidential Election of 2016 has seen support and enthusiasm for progressive politics like never seen before in the history of the United States. The Bernie Sanders campaign has united Independents, Progressive Democrats, Green Party voters, Democratic Socialists, unregistered voters, young first-time voters, and disenfranchised Democrat and Republican voters too. The Sanders campaign has risen to historic, record-breaking heights in fundraising for both numbers of individual contributions, as well as, number of individual contributors, with a mere average of $27 per contribution. The Sanders' campaign is the campaign of the people, for the people and one in which millions of us have been waiting for but had almost lost hope it was possible. Despite making history and fueling unbridled enthusiasm from his supporters, the Sanders campaign has had a plethora of obstacles; an extreme media bias from mass-media conglomerates resulting in a near media blackout during the pre-primary season, ongoing skewed journalistic reporting, and press coverage clearly providing his Democratic opponent Hillary Clinton a handicap-lead which has been difficult to overcome. Please join me in asking the Green Party of the United States, the Democratic Socialists of America, the Progressive Democrats of America, and the Sanders campaign and supporters to join forces to create a unified voting block to propel Bernie Sanders into the White House and to create THE LARGEST progressive voting block the United States have ever seen. It's time! This political revolution is not about one candidate, it's about all of us. We should fight like hell to get Bernie Sanders in the White House, but if Bernie does not win the nomination of the Democratic Party, let's not be unprepared to unite our votes! Let's not dissipate this historic enthusiasm for progressive politics; let's unite for our common causes of social equality and economic justice, to end mass incarcerations, end injustices of police brutality, to restore, protect, and preserve our planet, to maintain a woman's right to choose, ensure equal pay for equal work, raise the minimum wage, guarantee health care for all, and be sure nobody working full-time lives in poverty. Together, we can make a difference! Please sign my petition asking the Green Party, Progressive Democrats, the Democratic Socialist Party, and the Bernie Sanders supporters to unite our votes and our resources to exponentially grow our grassroots efforts for a better, safer, more loving, cleaner world. #WeAreOne
