Boycott companies "Boycotting" YouTube's advertisment program
We vow to boycott the purchasing of any products from any company boycotting YouTube's Adsense program on supposed "moral" grounds. This will take effect immediately until your YouTube ad revenue is turned on. We also request a statement from your company expressing allegiance to the spirit of our Bill of Rights and Constitution specifically the 1st Amendment. And an acknowledgement that like every citizen of this great country your company has a SOCIAL RESPONSIBILITY to honor the 1st Amendment and Bill of Rights. Simply stated we believe that this move to "demonetize" content creators is thinly veiled CENSORSHIP. As your companies "supposed moral stance" on "racist rhetoric" or "violent content" is not reflected in "mainstream media advertising" where countless movies, television shows, news casts, music etc display images, concepts, acts and verbiage dealing in racism, sexism, materialism, greed, violence, profane language, explicit sex acts, innuendos of pedophilia, endorsements of war and countless other hideous, insidious, profane and immoral acts. Furthermore the companies mentioned have histories of engaging in scandals and illegal activities themselves. HSBC for example laundering money for drug cartels and terrorists groups. GSK China bribery scandal. AT&T spying scandal and the 100 million dollar fine it paid for "misleading consumers" These are but a few examples in a LONG LIST OF CORRUPT AND IMMORAL activities engaged in by said companies. The hypocrisy is palpable. The timing questionable. The and the end result is an ANTI AMERICAN, anti freedom, anti free market, anti human result. We see this as nothing more then "globalist, fascist" power grab. With the intention of quashing the ever growing independent media and entertainment complex. As you companies political, social and economic interests lie in the preservation of the "Corporate Media Establishment" aka "State sponsored media" We request that the following companies reinstate their Revenues to Youtube in order to lift out "peoples boycott" on your products. Simple steps can be taken in order to reduce ads being displayed next to "unethical" content. This does not have to include punishing whole segments of the YouTube community and CENSORING unpopular opinions. ArgosAudiAvivaHavas Group UK froze all of its spend.

Lead GOP advocates the overthrow of our constitutional form of government.
The 115th congressional session violates their lawful obligations by the following: 1.) Complicit as the advocacy of the overthrow of our Constitutional form of government is apparent. 2.) Complicit as the Presidents' provocative rhetoric alienate the country from its' allies. 2.) Lack of transparency relating to recent activities that promotes the general welfare of the people. 4.) Complicit as the lead GOP improperly implements laws indicative of an authoritarian agenda. 5.) Failure to preserve, protect and defend the laws of the U.S. Constitution against enemies both foreign and domestic. 2017 Budget: Lack of clarity relative to appropriations for mandatory spending programs that decreases or eliminate funding to State agencies for services and programs for low income individuals. 2017 Budget: Lacks clarity relative to the purpose of competitive bidding pilot projects, and how these projects will benefit the people. Eliminating federal regulations that compromises the health, safety and well being of the people. Initiation of work study groups to collect personal and confidential information, ( as listed below ) on individuals by unauthorized entities and individuals without prior permission, violates the 4th and 14th amendment . 1.) Race and ethnicity. 2.) Individuals private and personal credentials. 3.) Health and medical info. 4.) Banking and finance info. 5.) Delineations of Metropolitan Statistical Areas, Micropolitan Statistical Areas, and Combined Statistical Areas. Mandates to EVERY telecommunication service provider, manufacturer of computers and cell phones, hardware and software developers, and ISP for the purpose of the law, 5 U.S.C. 552a - records maintained on individuals, is a clear violation of the privacy act of 1974, Article 4 of the U.S. Constitution and the 14th amendment. Confirmation of unqualified and questionable individuals to cabinet and Supreme court positions violates the 14th amendment, in addition to the (preambles) guidelines of the U.S. Constitution and the Declaration of Independence. Michael Pence, Paul Ryan, Orrin Hatch, Mitch McConnell, Mick Mulvaney, Kevin McCarthy and President Donald J. Trump committed an unimaginable, gross violation of their oaths of office against the United States Constitution, the United States Codes and the American people. The actions committed by these individuals warrants immediate removal from office, pending criminal charges under, Executive Order 10450- 18 U.S.C., 1918, title 5 U.S.C., 7311, advocacy of the overthrow of our constitutional form of government. Article 1, section 8, clause 18, The Necessary and Proper Clause and 5 U.S.C. 3331- 3333, obligates EVERY elected Senate and House Congressional member to exercise his/her legal and moral obligation to preserve, protect and defend the laws of the United States Constitution from enemies foreign and domestic. The people are depending on our elected officials to honor their oaths of office and save our democracy.

Defund, Dismantle, and Vanquish Cultural Marxism In Our Schools and Media
A Declaration of War Petition Against the State of Cultural Marxism What is the State of Cultural Marxism? Cultural Marxism is the mental application of Marxist socio-economic theory of class warfare to institutions of education, entertainment, media, and legislative social policy to dismantle and destroy all vestiges of Western Judaeo-Christian Civilization with its principles and values of individual freedom in order to produce a Utopian, classless, and mindless collectivity. Postmodernism and Cultural Marxism | Jordan B Peterson Whereas, the State of Cultural Marxism did on November 8, 2016 through their corruption of the United States Department of Justice, the Federal Bureau of Investigation, the Central Intelligence Agency, their agents, lawyers, and media clients colluding to dismantle the legally elected presidency of Donald J. Trump in direct violation of the Constitution of the United States of America, and did, with malice of forethought, declare war on the legal citizens of the United States of America Whereas, the State of Cultural Marxism has declared war against all manifestations of Western Judaeo-Christian Civilization in our constitutions, laws, courts, history and traditions by invading and occupying our tax-funded government and private schools holding the minds of our children hostage to Marxist ideology and aggression Whereas, the State of Cultural Marxism has laid waste to global media integrity with the weapons of logical fallacies, false evidence, mere accusation without any evidence, deceit, distortion, mendacity, libel, calumny, detraction, perjury under oath, slander, obliquity, character assassination and ‘offense archaeology’ Whereas, the State of Cultural Marxism denies the existence of any objective reality, truth, goodness and/or beauty by its imposition of universal Marxist cultural relativism weaponized as ‘multicultural diversity and inclusion’ Whereas, the only effective weapons against the State of Cultural Marxism is total punitive, reciprocal culture war through strategic, unrelenting, massive retaliation effected by individual defenders of freedom around the globe Therefore, be it resolved by individual global defenders of their inalienable, individual freedoms, its principles and values as set forth in the Bill of Rights in the United States Constitution, as amended, that the state of war between defenders of individual freedom and the State of Cultural Marxism that has been thrust upon us and is, hereby, formally declared and joined authorizing all defenders of Western Judaeo-Christian Civilization’s principles and values of individual freedom to direct and employ such measures and resources that are necessary to bring this culture war to a successful termination by defunding, dismantling, and vanquishing the State of Cultural Marxism. What Will Victory over Cultural Marxism Look Like? Rightfully, some may wonder ‘When will this War on Cultural Marxism be finally won?’ Since the invasion and occupation of cultural Marxism in America took half a century to effect in education, entertainment, media and legislative social policy, this war will take at very least two decades to win. Winning will be achieved when local, state, and national education, entertainment, media and legislative social policy returns to the guiding principles of reason, logic, provable evidence, and individual expressions free from the mindless collectivity of Marxist theory applied to these spheres of society. Winning will be achieved when reason replaces feelings in critical life decisions, nurturing of the young, religious expression, qualifications for elected office, Winning will be achieved when the traditional principles and values of Western Judaeo-Christian Civilization are respected and restored to their core function as the compass for wisdom. Winning will be achieved when all levels of government are once more afraid of its legal citizens and not the other way round. Winning will be achieved when those who create and build are again more respected and imitated rather than the feelings of the indolent parasites on the competent achievers of society. Winning will be achieved, not in some materialistic collective Utopia, but in the individual acceptance that we live in an imperfect universe that is both beyond our full understanding and beyond our even modest control. Winning the war against the State of Cultural Marxism will happen when it disintegrates into the realization that the human soul is the dynamic engine of wisdom and progress and not merely the body. Winning this war will only happen when social, and political institutions once again tend towards the transcendent values of objective reality, truth, goodness and beauty. That will be a long, difficult struggle, day-in, day-out for decades. It may never be achieved in our lifetime, or in the lifetime of our children, but let us begin. President John F. Kennedy inspired his generation facing a similar social crisis that we do now. He ended his stirring inaugural address with these still applicable words that beckon us today. “Finally, whether you are citizens of America or citizens of the world, ask of us here the same high standards of strength and sacrifice which we ask of you. With a good conscience our only sure reward, with history the final judge of our deeds, let us go forth to lead the land we love, asking His blessing and His help, but knowing that here on earth God's work must truly be our own.” What can you do, as a free individual, to dismantle and vanquish Cultural Marxism in schools and media? · Affirm your natural individual rights enshrined in the Bill of Rights to the American Constitution in every public meeting · Affirm scientific truth of only two genders · Affirm the scientific truth of no ‘races’ in human biology, therefore no racism only bigotry · Affirm equality under the law but not equality of outcome · Never apologize for being white, male, religious, or heterosexual · Always attack, never apologize or defend · Use the courts and media to attack · Attack as an individual not as a mob · Stop Using the Marxists Dictionary · Master the Constitution, state education codes, Department of Education guidelines, rules, and regulations · Attend all local governing board meetings of government schools, and city councils · Run for local governing boards of government schools and city councils · Use Social Media to open local, state and national media contacts · Use Social Media to find ANTI-COMMIE lawyers, foundations and media outlets · Don’t self-censor your ideas or your language · Don’t feel guilt, remorse or regret · Deny ‘Utopian equality’ · Deny ‘white privilege’ · Deny ‘unconscious bias’ · Deny ‘male privilege’ · Deny 'equity of outcomes' · Tell them their feelings don’t matter only facts matter · Deny mere accusations made without evidence · Demand your natural rights expressed in the Bill of Rights ---- Created by: Mark McIntire Professor of Philosophy, Retired Santa Barbara City College Host of FREEDOM MATTERS with Mark McIntire
Petition to Donald J. Trump, United Nations
Global Internet Bill of Rights. Version 1.0 by Floyd Z. Yancey
Internet Bill of Rights, Ver 1.0 –Floyd Z. Yancey WE THE PEOPLE, including any form of business entity, government entity, or organization of any sort, Recognize the need for a set of rules to protect our rights and freedoms on the internet and anything regarding electronic communication. This includes but is not limited to IP and cellular based phone calls, emails, video streams, news, radio going over the public accessible networks, (The internet). We understand that this technology is subject to change. We understand with simplicity a boundary exists between a computer and the physical world. We establish this boundary, as a demarcation line for action and prescribe the following rules to govern. 1. Free speech: By nature, human beings have differing opinions and are subject to emotion, ill judgement, substance abuse and all sorts of human flaws. In order to preserve ALL speech, and not exclude, there shall be no law or practice regulating opinions, beliefs, statements, misconstrued facts, falsehoods, fabrications, perceived hate speech or any utterance on a keyboard that could have just as easily come out of the persons mouth. We understand, that it’s completely possible to turn off the device in which said communication is being presented and walk away. We accept that which would offend in order to preserve our own rights to unfettered speech. 2. Sharing of digital media: It is understood that copyright holders wish to control their ownership and profit from redistribution of their materials. However, the internet was designed as an open, free source of information sharing. We agree that “Not for profit” use of materials subject or not subject to copyright, is fair game and should be immune to any prosecution, litigation, punitive actions, censorship or restriction by any means. We understand that if the creator wishes to protect said copyright and avoid manipulation, they should do so by NOT placing the item on the internet for public consumption. To define a boundry of fair use, we establish a “Wall” which is defined as the point where data becomes non-private. The inside wall, will be protected, and it is assumed that all data within, is not to be shared to the general public or subject to public use or manipulation. Such items would be corporate data, private emails, conversations between one or more parties, personal videos, texts etc. To clearly define: Any item created by an entity NOT intended for public view. The outside of the “Wall”, will be any item intended for public view and consumption, that is not protected by watermark, payment systems, passwords, or any other mechanism to protect privacy, copyright and extract payment from the consumer. 3. Digital ownership: We recognize the digital footprint of an individual, corporation, artist, group, or entity capable or producing material of a useful nature. We hold this entity responsible for the protection of the material they produce and to not freely distribute the content past the “Wall” as mentioned before, unless they are freely giving the material to the public to consume and manipulate. This will be absolute to avoid “Gray areas”. It is the responsibility or the creator to protect their content, from hackers, pirates, thieves of any sort, or hire a 3rd party to accept liability. We understand the risk involved in placing information on public storage devices. If the material crosses the wall it will be assumed that the creator failed to protect said content, and no punitive actions, will fall upon those unknowing sharing or manipulating such data. Free public data providers are free from liability in any form. Paid providers are subject to liability as defined in contractual agreements. People and entities shall not have their personal data resold, without mutual consideration and consent. Ex: Personal info can not be published OR sold as an investigatory tool, research item, public records lookup, without the written consent and mutual consideration towards the owner. Seeded items with imbedded code for copyright “Baiting” and mass litigation, shall be considered illegal and irrelevant. Mass action lawsuits for such actions shall be considered null and void, past present and future. Those who have been a victim of such lawsuits shall have the right to receive any money lost from the accusing party, as legal recourse. 4. Internet contracts: We understand, as individuals not trained in law, that clicking a checkbox to “Sign up” or “Agree” and having consequences applied is unfair and impractical. No internet contract shall be enforceable unless there is an agreement, money transferred, and/or mutual consideration given. The consequences of default on the contract must not outweigh the value of the transaction. Punitive damages are not to apply to an internet contract. Contract “by use” is not permitted. 5. Digital evidence: We understand that digital media, pictures, videos, sounds, can easily be altered, and should not be considered as evidence in any legal proceeding. We understand that digital archives are expensive to maintain, and the evidence that could be collected is subject to corruption, manipulation, identity theft, fact change, abuse by corrupt governments and leaders to silence opposition. We demand that all archived data be solely under the control of the end user, at their discretion as whether allow for retention, NOT retained by default, and not to be scanned or otherwise harvested by third parties. There shall be no laws requiring permanent storage of data by any parties. Wiretapping of any digital evidence should be considered tainted and only used for research. It will not be admissible in court. The creator of any material outside the wall, retains controlling ownership, and the right to delete such content whenever they choose. 6. Government regulation of private corporations: No government shall play a role in the collection or harvesting of data inside or outside the wall. It shall not enforce censorship, fact checking, speech controls, policing, or political manipulation, nor shall it require, advocate, persuade, or influence the actions of private corporations, other than to force compliance with this bill of rights. 7. Monopolization of information: No private or government entity shall use it’s resources to influence public opinion for any agenda, unless they advertise such alliances/political goals with each dated, public, release of information. The public should always be aware of any political alignment or favoritism attached to an informational release of any sort. The private individual or organized entities inside the “wall” are immune. 8. Advertising: We recognize the need for ad revenue, but also the need for tangible content. We declare that no entity whatsoever shall utilize more than 5% of a users data throughput up or down for advertising related services. Advertising packages, attachments, software, malware or any device capable of delivering ads to the consumer must be opt in by default, and such delivery and methods must be clearly described to the consumer before the opt-in option is given. Bait and click, Trojan horse, or any ad delivery or data harvesting methods where an agreement is not made and mutual consideration given shall be considered illegal, and subject to prosecution. 9. Whistleblower and leak protection We understand the need for disclosure of information that benefits the individual citizen and protects said individual from corruption and harm, including misuse of taxes, abuse of governmental power, misinformation campaigns, fake news and anything that would cause a citizen to be at the disadvantage with lack of said knowledge. A data release which causes detriment to any organization but benefits the general citizenry shall become public knowledge and be outside the realm of prosecution/punishment to any and all involved. We understand it is up to the owner of said information to protect it. Failure to do so is not a burden to the public. Public use of such released information shall not be questioned or hindered in any way. 10. Personal responsibility. We desire a free and open internet. In doing so we understand that private policing by governmental entities is cost prohibitive and logistically impossible. As there are billions of potential individual entities on the internet, we take responsibility for our own actions and hold private corporations and governments immune. We understand, as this is a digital connection we can always “Walk away”. Should any matter, or action become non-digital, Ex: Someone threatening you in person, it shall be subject to normal laws and regulations. We, being informed citizens, understand that digital information is subject to alteration, & will consider blackmail data, photos, and any other digital information to be unreliable, false by default. Any release of such data should have NO credibility, and any action taken if necessary shall be between the target of the action and the person to release such info. Personal opinion & voice shall be ignored and considered free speech and irrelevant in any legal proceedings. 11. Court of public opinion. Any digital claim made by anyone against a company govt, organization or other individual shall be considered free speech and treated as such. In order to protect free speech and transfer of information, no consideration shall be given to slander, libel, or defamation. Any derogatory utterance or assembly of individuals to voice opposition to a company, govt, organization, individual shall be considered irrelevant online. Only in physical form, such as newsprint, flyers, postal mailings, shall such information be considered by local governing laws. Damage by the “Court of Public Opinion” shall be considered free speech and immune to any adverse effects to the consumer. 12: Pornography: There shall be no censorship or control of human sexuality. We understand that pornography/nudity may offensive in different degrees depending on which area of the world in which we live. It is not the job of the government to dictate sexual preference or moral law. We understand it is up to ourselves as citizens to police what we and our families view. We always have the option to look away, or turn off the computer. We do recognize the need to protect minors and any who can’t consent. To this end will defer to the local authorities to enforce such protections. Other than to protect those entities, we reserve the rights to view or not view based upon our own personal beliefs, enforced by ourselves, and not infringe on others and inflict our moral beliefs upon them. Summary: We consider this an international binding agreement. We consider this “internet” medium as outlet of expression for humanity and a unified digital landscape, free from boundaries, hindrances, persecution and control. We realize the need for open communication to allow for the spread of knowledge and dissolve barriers that create ignorance and hate. We understand that in order to facilitate such ideals, we must alter our beliefs and accept that there are things and individuals who will offend our beliefs. We are willing to accept the consequences of interacting with others that may have different opinions, beliefs or laws than to which we are accustomed. We will not sacrifice liberty and freedom for security. Signed, The people of the Earth.
Petition to Donald J. Trump
Defend the 2nd Amendment as promised!
Over 120 million Americans are lawful gun owners. Every day, they own and carry their firearms safely and when necessary, use them to defend against criminal attack. These defensive gun uses include the AR-15 rifle, a semi-auto modern sporting rifle that only fires one bullet with each pull of the trigger. It is not a killing machine, it is not a military machine gun (the M-16A3 and M4 rifles are the military's machine guns for individual soldiers). Antigun, anti-liberty Democrats want to undo the Bill of Rights by starting with the 2nd Amendment. Mr. Trump, you promised to protect the 2nd Amendment when you ran for office. At the prompting of the NRA, which has compromised repeatedly and worked to undermine gunowners' rights, you spoke favorably of Bump-stock bans and Red Flag laws, which are the Democrat camel's nose under the tent of the Bill of Rights. Mr. President, you need to walk it back and rescind the Bump stock ban and withdraw support for Red Flag laws. Disregard the promptings of the National Rifle Association; they only speak for about 10% of gun owners. Mr. President, if you need a national gun organization's advice on how to address 2nd Amendment issues, contact Gun Owners of America (GOA) - their website is http://gunowners.org Gun Owners of America is the no-compromise gun rights group that Democrats truly fear. If the Democrats can succeed in abolishing the 2nd Amendment, then all other liberties are in jeopardy. Already, Britain has essentially done away with all the fundamental liberties of their people, starting with the Englishman's common-law right to own, carry, and use firearms. Don't let America follow down that dark path! Support and defend the 2nd Amendment to the Constitution, the right that guarantees all other rights!
Petition to Proguntactics
The Bill of Rights is an immutable affirmation of human rights!
Every day we see the Bill of rights under attack by politicians who either: have not read the Constitution, cannot comprehend its integrity, forgotten their oath to it or wish to overthrow the sovereignty of our nation. Even though, The Bill of Rights grants no rights to the free people of this country, It is still the cornerstone of everything we hold dear in America. No more shall we tolerate politicians that attempt to subvert or destroy the way of life for the American people. Listed below is the Bill of Rights simplified. Everyone can agree that this document must not change for We the People to maintain our freedoms. Please sign the petition and let them know that the Bill of rights and the constitution means everything to the American people. I and every American would like to see a law passed that limits the power to ratify or edit any amendment in the Bill of rights to include needing 4/5 vote in each house of Congress to be proposed. Then the proposed amendment must be ratified by majority votes in the legislatures or conventions of four-fifths of the states before it can become part of the Constitution. This extra security would make the Bill of Rights more resilient to being changed on a whim and would require a substantial change in society to overturn these unalienable rights of the people. Amendment 1 - Freedom of Religion, Speech, and the Press Congress shall make no law respecting an establishment of religion or prohibiting the free exercise thereof, or abridging the freedom of speech or of the press, or the right of the people peaceably to assemble and to petition the government for a redress of grievances. Amendment 2 - The Right to Bear Arms A well-regulated Militia being necessary to the security of a free State, the right of the people to keep and bear Arms shall not be infringed. Amendment 3 - The Housing of Soldiers No soldier shall, in time of peace, be quartered in any house without the consent of the owner, nor in time of war but in a manner to be prescribed by law. Amendment 4 - Protection from Unreasonable Searches and Seizures The right of the people to be secure in their persons, houses, papers, and effects against unreasonable searches and seizures shall not be violated, and no warrants shall issue but upon probable cause, supported by oath or affirmation, and particularly describing the place to be searched and the persons or things to be seized. Amendment 5 - Protection of Rights to Life, Liberty, and Property No person shall be held to answer for a capital or otherwise infamous crime unless on a presentment or indictment of a grand jury, except in cases arising in the land or naval forces, or in the militia, when in actual service in time of war or public danger; nor shall any person be subject for the same offense to be twice put in jeopardy of life or limb; nor shall be compelled in any criminal case to be a witness against himself, nor be deprived of life, liberty, or property without due process of law; nor shall private property be taken for public use without just compensation. Amendment 6 - Rights of Accused Persons in Criminal Cases In all criminal prosecutions, the accused shall enjoy the right to a speedy and public trial by an impartial jury of the state and district wherein the crime shall have been committed, which district shall have been previously ascertained by law, and to be informed of the nature and cause of the accusation; to be confronted with the witnesses against him; to have compulsory process for obtaining witnesses in his favor; and to have the assistance of counsel for his defense. Amendment 7 - Rights in Civil Cases In suits at common law, where the value in controversy shall exceed twenty dollars, the right of trial by jury shall be preserved, and no fact tried by a jury shall be otherwise reexamined in any court of the United States than according to the rules of the common law. Amendment 8 - Excessive Bail, Fines, and Punishments Forbidden Excessive bail shall not be required, nor excessive fines imposed, nor cruel and unusual punishments inflicted. Amendment 9 - Other Rights Kept by the People The enumeration in the Constitution of certain rights shall not be construed to deny or disparage others retained by the people. Amendment 10 - Undelegated Powers Kept by the States and the People The powers not delegated to the United States by the Constitution, nor prohibited by it to the states, are reserved to the states respectively, or to the people.
