Petition to Congressman John Lewis

THE CBC WITHDRAWAL OF SUPPORT OF HR 2282 THE EQUALITY ACT OF 2017-2018

 Congressman John Lewis (D-GA 5th Cong. Dist.) Must Repudiate the Equality Act H.R. 2282 (aka the Lewis-Pelosi Pedophile Amnesty Act) or Resign from Office   Congressman John Lewis' unbiblical, ahistorical, and unscientific decision to promote the diametrically-opposed issues of the Black people being a protected class with the legislative measures taken to remedy concerns of the largely affluent and white Homosexual Rights Movement is a disgrace to America, to African Americans, to Christianity and to women and minors. Lewis' obdurate, turpitudinous, irrational, injudicious, and irreverent decision to make the moral equivalence of persons sexual preference/addiction to those whose skin color is immutably rooted in their DNA  demonstrates a not so subtle contempt for Black Americans, the Constitution, the Christian faith, the canon of Civil Rights Law, and the health, welfare, and safety of women and those not of majority. Furthermore, Lewis' co-sponsorship of H.R. 2282 (aka the Lewis-Pelosi Pedophile Amnesty Act or Pedo Rights Act) manifest the deep defect in his character, judgment, and sanity--wherein a beloved Civil Rights icon and ordained  Baptist Minister would sully his good name and the true purpose of a movement that he suffered grievous bodily harm is psychiatrically intriguing and both shockingly inappropriate and immoral. For 32 years, Black voters have faithfully voted for John Lewis returning him to Congress 17 times, and this was based on his often overrated valor as a Civil Rights worker in the 1960s. Atlantans favored John over the late Julian Bond whom Lewis had scandalized with allegations of drug abuse in 1986. However, in retrospect, John Lewis' decision to become a prodigal slave to Cultural Marxism has made him a living scandal who has strayed from the orthodoxy of biblical Christianity which designates homosexuality, pedophilia, incest, bestiality, and abortion as abominations. As a member of Congress, Lewis has availed himself to blaspheme the Holy Scriptures in Leviticus 18 and 19, and he  has championed the abominations of homosexuality, abortion, and, now, pedophilia euphemistically called Minor-Attracted Persons (MAP) which come under the rubric of gender expression/gender identity in the Equality Act of 2017-2018 (aka the Lewis-Pelosi Pedophile Amnesty Act/ Pedo Rights Act).    What is at stake is the destruction of American family life and the American Christian tradition should John Lewis' and Nancy Pelosi's H.R. 2282 be ratified into law in 2018. The enacting so-called Equality Act would result in the gross loss of Constitutional Rights for the 97 percent of American citizens which includes the loss of the right of freedom of belief, freedom of speech, freedom of assembly, freedom of religion, and freedom from undue search and seizure. Furthermore, H.R. 2282 destroys all accepted conventions of existing gender/sexuality protocols between men and women and minors and adults. The origin of this so-called Equality Act is rooted in anomie and extremist, anti-family, atheistic, radical post-modernist, Kinseyan, feministic, insatiable homosexual theories lacking any scientific foundation or documented evidence of having any redeeming value. These dangerous and anti-American, anti-family, anti-male, anti-female, anti-child, and anti-Christian ideas would most assuredly foment social chaos and putrify the social fabric of American life as we know it.  Therefore, the Equality Act (aka the Lewis-Pelosi Pedophile Amnesty Act) will place millions of vulnerable children, women, and insecure families at risk of untold increases in sexual and psychological abuse and trauma unnecessarily. Given the fragile state of many American families and the already difficult developmental challenges of our youth, the H.R. 2282 sponsored by Rev. John Lewis is a moral ethical bridge too far in the direction of moral declension and societal decay. We demand for the sake of our children and those unborn whom deserve a better America that John Lewis all other Congressional Black Caucus members repudiate the Equality Act or face an enraged and energized Black American voting population that has been awakened by this and other atrocious laws and political malpractice of the so-called "Conscience of the Congress" that long ago sold them out for a mess of lobbyist pottage. John Lewis, we demand that you be a part of saving America, and, herewith, denounce the Equality Act or encounter a collective effort to end your political career. Your years of running unopposed have ended.  The choice is yours whether you wish to be remembered for the yeoman work you did in the 1960s and in politics or be reviled as the patron saint of child molesters and sexually confused bullies. By any means necessary the Congressional Black Caucus will be brought to heel.

Petition to Judge David Gooding/Jewish Family Services Jacksonville

Let Nevaeh stay with her African American family

Two year old Nevaeh Alexander has been in foster care and around her family since she was born. She has a grandfather, great grandmother, uncle, aunt, cousins and etc that she knows and loves. A family in the North is trying to take her away from her family. Her cousin, Latrisha McFarland,  applied to adopt her after she found out that the other family had put in for the adoption. According to research, kids are hardwired to take cues about the world, and draw a sense of physical and emotional security, from their parents/ and when they’re taken from their caregivers prematurely, their development may stall and potentially suffer irrevocable harm. “These early separations have a profound effect on the overall capacity for people to function and be useful members of society,” van der Kolk says. “Your brain is a predictive system. If people get ripped away from you, you get a brain that will say, ‘People will mess with me. People will hurt me. People will take advantage of me.’ That becomes your basic orientation as you grow up.” Dr. Bessel van der Kolk, director of the Trauma Center in Boston and a childhood trauma expert According to care.com- The American Academy of Pediatrics (AAP), social developments at age 2 include toddler separation anxiety and begin to show signs of separation anxiety -- even if they didn't as babies.  There is the possibility the individual will permanently take on the “victim” or “victimizer” role. Long term control issues may be prominent. A serious effect may be the disruption in ego development, with an increased incidence of “borderlinepersonality” problems. Lack of self-awareness may be ongoing. There may be long term subtle language problems. As adults, these individuals may be rigid, inflexible, and not able to deal appropriately with aggressive impulses.  The courts have decided that she would be better off with this family (who live far away) because it would be "nice" for her to grow up with her older sibling they adopted some years ago. They are willing to devastate  this two year old little girl and her relatives by taking her away from blood family in order for her to call other people uncle, grandfather etc.  Why risk all of that to satify this family's need? The needs of the many outweight the needs of the one. Latrisha will file an appeal. Please sign the petition and tell the Jewish Family Services and the Judge that this African American girl should remain with her family. Thank you so kindly - God Bless .

Petition to Citizens' Stamp Advisory Committee, Postmaster General Megan Brennan, Deputy Postmaster Ronald Stroman

Campaign for a commemorative postage stamp of the immortal Henrietta Lacks

We write to request your favorable consideration of the authorization of a postage stamp commemorating the “immortal” Henrietta Lacks.  It is our understanding that the Henrietta Lacks Legacy Group (HLLG) presented a proposal to the Citizens’ Stamp Advisory Committee to affect the commission of such a stamp on December 31, 2013 and again on July 11, 2017.  Lacks’ legacy encompasses Black History, world history, and human welfare.  In light of the tremendous contributions made to medical research, space exploration, and bioethics via her HeLa cells, it seems both proper and fitting that she should be recognized via a commemorative postage stamp.     Considered by many to be the mother of modern medicine, Henrietta Lacks has touched more people, influenced more medical breakthroughs, and saved more lives than anyone else in modern history.  The most immediate result of HeLa was the creation of the Polio vaccine, which eradicated the disease.  Clones of the original cell culture continue to serve as the foundation of groundbreaking scientific research, globally.  In addition to those already listed, HeLa cells are used in the development of HIV/AIDS treatments, advancements in cloning, in vitro fertilization, and genetics research. Alas, because she was an African-American woman of humble birth and social standing in mid-20th century America, Mrs. Lacks’ true identity was deliberately concealed, robbing her and her descendants of rightful recognition.  Only recently has the world awakened to the unparalleled, exceedingly positive impact Lacks has made toward its betterment. She has been and continues to be honored in many ways. Most recently, these honors include:     2017     Designated street in Turner Station, Maryland as “Henrietta Lacks Place” 2017     Designated part of highway 695 in Dundalk, Maryland “Henrietta Lacks Way” 2017     The State of Maryland has designated the 1st Saturday in August as “Henrietta Lacks Day” 2017     Premiere of the television movie on HBO The Immortal Life of Henrietta Lacks, starring Oprah Winfrey 2017     Exhibit honoring Henrietta Lacks kicks off 13-City Tour in Washington D.C at the African American Health Equity Summit 2016     The House of Representatives honored Henrietta Lacks for Women’s History Month, presented by the Hon. Elijah E. Cummings, on March 14, 2016 In summary, Henrietta Lacks has unquestionably earned international acclaim.  We ask that the United States Postal Service show our nation’s appreciation for her immense gift by issuing a commemorative postage stamp in her honor.  This tribute would do much towards justly acknowledging her legacy while enthusiastically demonstrating our embrace of this remarkable American woman and her miraculous endowment to humanity.  Thank you for seriously evaluating this request. I trust that you will deem it worthy of your support.

40 ACRES AND A MULE REPARATIONS FOR MOST HIGH CHILDREN

INTRODUCTION Harriet Tubman became famous as a “conductor” on the Underground Railroad during the turbulent 1850s. Born a slave on Maryland’s eastern shore, she endured the harsh existence of a field hand, including brutal beatings. In 1849 she fled slavery, leaving her husband and family behind in order to escape. Despite a bounty on her head, she returned to the South at least 19 times to lead her family and hundreds of other slaves to freedom via the Underground Railroad. Tubman also served as a scout, spy and nurse during the Civil War. In 1849 Tubman fled Maryland, leaving behind her free husband of five years, John Tubman, and her parents, sisters, and brothers. “Mah people mus’ go free,” her constant refrain, suggests a determination uncommon among even the most militant slaves. She returned to the South at least nineteen times to lead her family and hundreds of other slaves to freedom via the Underground Railroad. Utilizing her native intelligence and drawing on her boundless courage, she eluded bounty hunters seeking a reward for her capture, which eventually went as high as forty thousand dollars. She never lost a fugitive or allowed one to turn back. Did You Know? Harriet Tubman's birthname was Araminta Ross. Two things sustained her: the pistol at her side and her faith in God. She would not hesitate to use the pistol in self-defense, but it was also a symbol to instruct slaves, making it clear that “dead Negroes tell no tales.” Timid slaves seemed to find courage in her presence; no one ever betrayed her. She affirmed her faith in God in her statement, “I always tole God, I’m gwine to hole stiddy on to you, an’ you’ve got to see me trou [through].” Tubman collaborated with John Brown in 1858 in planning his raid on Harpers Ferry. The two met in Canada where she told him all she knew of the Underground Railroad in the East. Advising him on the area in which he planned to operate, she promised to deliver aid from fugitives in the region. Brown’s admiration for her was immeasurable, and he wanted her to accompany him on the raid. Tubman planned to be present but was ill at the time and could not participate. Tubman’s resistance to slavery did not end with the outbreak of the Civil War. Her services as nurse, scout, and spy were solicited by the Union government. For more than three years she nursed the sick and wounded in Florida and the Carolinas, tending whites and blacks, soldiers and contrabands. Tubman was a short woman without distinctive features. With a bandanna on her head and several front teeth missing, she moved unnoticed through rebel territory. This made her invaluable as a scout and spy under the command of Col. James Montgomery of the Second Carolina Volunteers. As leader of a corps of local blacks, she made several forays into rebel territory, collecting information. Armed with knowledge of the location of cotton warehouses, ammunition depots, and slaves waiting to be liberated, Colonel Montgomery made several raids in southern coastal areas. Tubman led the way on his celebrated expedition up the Combahee River in June 1863. For all of her work, Tubman was paid only two hundred dollars over a three-year period and had to support herself by selling pies, gingerbread, and root beer. After the war, Tubman returned to Auburn, New York, and continued to help blacks forge new lives in freedom. She cared for her parents and other needy relatives, turning her residence into the Home for Indigent and Aged Negroes. Lack of money continued to be a pressing problem, and she financed the home by selling copies of her biography and giving speeches. Her most memorable appearance was at the organizing meeting of the National Association of Colored Women in 1896 in Washington, D.C. Two generations came together to celebrate the strength of black women and to continue their struggle for a life of dignity and respect. Harriet Tubman, the oldest member present, was the embodiment of their strength and their struggle. Sarah Bradford, Harriet: The Moses of Her People (1886); Earl Conrad, Harriet Tubman (1943); Dorothy Sterling, ed., We Are Your Sisters: Black Women in the Nineteenth Century (1984). This is more than history this is a Biblical moment that our ancestors pave the way for us to have I am being led by the Holy Spirit to start this movement of getting us reparations so that we can heal ourselves from the wounds of our ancestors pain and affliction. I can only imagine to change that this could bring to the people of the Lost tribes I pray that everyone takes heed and understands that this is the time the first will be the last and the last will be the first praise the most high for His blessings Samara Yeshaya
