Indoor mold and fungi! The dangerous truth every home owner and resident needs to know!

Indoor mold and fungi growth, although still being researched as to how sevearly it effects human health and which species are linked to certain diseases or mental impairments, is widely recognized in many county's and states as a dangerous and substandard condition when it's pretense is found in excess and in areas where it is uncommon for moisture to accumulate.  There are specific conditions required that promote bacterial and mold or fungi related growth as well as very crucial and specific procedures to clean and prevent future regrowth that require professional inspection and possibly remediation. If an unqualified person attempts to clean, cover up, or improperly assess anot indoor mold infestation, it can not only put their health and safety in danger, they are risking the well being of the occupants and can disturb a potentially toxic colony, allowing the spores to spread which will result in more damage to health and compromise the sanitation and structure of the building.  My boyfriend, Jacob Adler, and I, Kandice Cammiso, have personally been living this nightmare. After the recent heavy rains we discovered severe mold growth on our window sill which had also spread to the wooden blinds that came with the house. We notified our landlord of the issue and began our own research wich lead to our knowledge of the dangers this infestation possesses and how unsafe, uneducated attempts to fix this could be  unfortunately our landlord not only denied the presence that began to grow on every surface of our home, he tried to force us to vacate by means of theft of our property, nonstop harrassment, false accusations attempting to intimidate us, stalking and deframation of our character in past and present work places, and breaking and entering. We reached out to every County authority would could and either no one returned our calls or they told us they don't handle mold situations. We felt helpless and to be honest a little insane. When we finally got an inspection from code enforcement, it seemed as if we knew more about codes and building standards as well as the conditions California lists thate that deem a home substandard or uninhabitable. He overlooked anything related to the word mold and refused to acknowledge the severend water damage, faulty plumbing and un-permitted roofing, which lead to the growth of mold in every room which in turn dilapidated the flooring, as well as every wall inside and outside, and our ceiling.  Our entry doors have gaps beneath that allow weather intrusion and other uninvited guest. We have an insects such as spiders, beatles, cockroaches, mosquitos, and flying ants entering as they please. There mold and fungal spore chains growing in our carpets and our walls have holes appearing out of no where. The ceiling in our bedroom is sagging and crumbling, and the attic insulation is severely water damaged and there is major mold growth everywhere. Our heater is a fire hazard and we were without heat all winter and there are no working smoke alarms and have not been for years. We also suspect the precense of lead and asbestos as there was a wall built over original walls and our landlord performed un-permitted, under qualified re-roofing and remodeling of the flooring, electrical and cabinet, counter, and sink in the kitchen, after the place was unoccupied for two years and dramatically reduced in price before the current owner purchased it. A house this old should be tested for lead and asbestos before doing any repair work and it is clear that didn't happen. We are illegally being forced out of our home and we denied the proper documentation needed to prove our conditions to the judge.  We have been sick with chronic coughing, sinus infections, skin and eye infection, headaches, nausea, muscle and joint pain, extreme fatigue, memory loss, confusion, blurred vision, hearing impairment, depression, anxiety and hair loss. My hair has shortened itself 3 inches and is thinning rapidly with bald spots even.  Our clothes, furniture, and cherished belongings are destroyed by stains and mold growth that returns on just about every porus surface twice as bad when we attempt to clean it ourselves. This has caused such a disruption in our quality of life and faithe in trusting people appointed to keep us safe and healthy.  We have lost friends, jobs, and so much money attempting to save our property and sanity by staying somewhat sanitary and comfortable in our own home.  There needs to be a program with code enforcement in place in every County of San bernardino that requires officials to be trained in the identification of mold, which by the way can effect you just as bad even when there are no visible signs of growth. Mold reservoirs can be hidden in wall cavities, under baseboards, or in the attic. They should also be made aware of the conditions that promote mold growth such as neglected or improperly remediate roof or plumbing leaks, lack of or poor ventilation. Lack of or poorly weather proofed windows and doors, as well as unmaintained HVAC systems. They need to be refreshed on housing laws that are in place to afford residents a safe, decent, and might I add, healthy place to live.  There should also be an awareness newsletter sent out to all homeowners and renters alike, informing them of how to handle repair requests or notifications from tenants and what the laws are regarding this process to protect them and the tenants both, as well as how to prevent mold growth in the changing seasons and what to do if it's presence is found. This is including but not limited to: Mildew in a bathroom caused by not turning on the fan or opening the window is normal and can be cleaned with bleach. Mold growth in your window sills due to lack of weather proofing which can be easily sealed and cleaned without compromising your health or causing it to regrow and spread. Signs of the precense of allergenic or toxic molds and how to recognize symptoms that are abnormal and consistent, as well as foreign musty, chemical, or vomit like smells. Discoloration of walls and evidence of water intrusion and damage.  This is an issue that many are unaware could be the cause of numerous health and mental issues, and especially affects children, elderly, those with asthma or respitory issues, low immune systems, or who recently had surgery. If you  don't know how to identify it,  its easy to over look growth and stop it before it becomes a serious and expensive issue. Remediation can cost thousands of dollars which is why a lot of landlordstuff would rather force you out then properly clean and fix the issues that lead to this in the first place.  I would like San Bernardino county to make sure a proper pre-rental inspection of the inside and outside of the house is done annually as well as requirement for code enforcement and health department, or building and safety officials to be educated in indoor mold and fungi growth and how to enforce the codes in place that protect renters from being forced to tolerate substandard conditions and negligent landlords. Your hard earned money should not be spent on a dwelling unit unfit for occupancy.  If the county officials are paid to ensure that standards and requirements are met there should be no reason these conditions should go unacknowledged, according to law. They should be prevented or abated in a timely manner. I care about my community and the safety and well being of humans, animals, and our environment alike. "No State shall make or enforce any law which shall abridge the privileges or immunities of citizens of the United States; nor shall any State deprive any person of life, liberty, or punsuit of happiness, without due process of law; nor deny to any person within its jurisdiction the EQUAL protection of the laws." My goal is to at least get San Bernardino County, especially the city of Hesperia, since they are their own municipal and their own ordinance that is not fully enforced, revise any rental housing program and way of answering complaints, especially for a non-registered dwelling units, to match the ones in place in counties like Sacramento, contract Costa, San Diego and so on. These county's have an in depth code enforcement program that includes a more thurough inspection checklist of interior and exterior and random inspections that promote prevention of substandard dwelling units. They also have strict timelines in place for abating any violations, which they follow up on and pursue action when owners neglect to properly abate the things they were sited for. Also a requirement of documentation and permits must be present at time of scheduled inspecton. This program  provides education for owners, landlords, property mamagers amd tenants on what is required of them by law. This holds owners and send tenants accountable for doing what is required to maintain the sanitation, safety, and condition of the premises, and prevent hazardous situations.  Please join my cause of action to afford everyone the right to quality, enjoyable, safe and healthy residency in every town or city.

Petition to Joseph Biden, Dick Durbin, Anderson Cooper, Joe Kennedy, Adam Schiff

The people will Impeach Donald Trump & Company

Donald Trump has violated the Constitution.  He is the President of the United States, but is not protecting our country or the American people.  He has put us in harms way and is trying to destroy America forever The first three words of the U.S. Constitution  "We the people" which confirms that the U.S. government does exist to serve it's citizens, and thus the people's equality and liberty are to be upheld through their elected representatives who listen to the people's petitions and put them into law. No where in the Constitution does it state that the elected representatives views over-ride the views of the people.Donald Trump is in violation of more than a few Constitutional violations, and we the people are petitioning to remove him and his cabinet and staff from office, while  awaiting trial after a new emergency committee chosen by the people in a national special election is appointed.Donald Trumps Oath of Office: :—"I do solemnly swear (or affirm) that I will faithfully execute the Office of President of the United States, and will to the best of my Ability, preserve, protect and defend the Constitution of the United States."He has not preserved, protected, or defended the Constitution of the United States, He has made up his own rules, publically defended Russia and stated "America is not innocent", and thrown out the Constitution of the United States. Here is proof that Donald Trump emphatically did not  keep his oath to preserve, protect and defend the U.S. Constitution: 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. The first ten amendments contain the Bill of Rights.The first amendment protects religious freedom by prohibiting the establishment of an official or exclusive church or sect. Free speech and free press are protected, although they can be limited for reasons of defamation, obscenity, and certain forms of state censorship, especially during wartime. The freedom of assembly and petition also covers marching, picketing and pamphleteering. Donald Trump clearly banned the press, but not for defamation, obscenity, and it is not wartime. He banned the press because he does not want to be questioned on the way he is doing his job. If he wanted to claim defamation or obscenity, then he has to be banned himself for stating that he just likes to grab women by the Pussy, as well as, many other things. He claims locker talk.  Women claim defamation and obscenity! The first Amendment means that the government cannot restrict  expression on the basis of its ideas message or content. Donald Trump is now guilty of violations of: A. First Amendment: 1. Intimidating critics. 2. Restricting the freedom and independence of the press, because no one was threatening him, they were doing their job. I have seen Senators and Representatives swearing at people and yelling at them in sessions and nobody bans them. He had no reason to ban them. He banned them; because, he did not like that they disagreed with him, and give their opinion. No one was threatening him. He is not the owner of a corporation here.  He is the President of a country that is supposed to support the people.  So far, he has never supported any of the people. B. Federal Regulations1. Promoting Ivanka Trump's clothing line on public TV, even talking about it in public is a direct violation of the Federal Regulation.2. Not securing the Mara Lago or Trump Towers according to Federal Regulations, possibly allowing security leaks. C. Colluding with a foreign power against the interests of the U.S. ,1. On public TV slamming America by stating our country was not so innocent and defending Putin (Russia) over America.2. Steve Bannon stated and Trump concurred "The Trump administration would deconstruct administrative state. Bannon thinks they own America".“If you think they’re going to give you your country back without a fight, you are sadly mistaken,” Bannon said in reference to the media and opposition forces. “Every day, it is going to be a fight.” This statement definitely states that Trump and possibly Bannon, as well as, his entire Cabinet thinks he owns America and it is one of his Real Estate Deals.3. Trump's China trademark, definitely gives him a gift from China. Plain and simply unconstitutional!!! Last, but not least:  DONALD TRUMP'S CABINET PICKS AND CONGRESS. I believe the 1st Amendment is another constitutional throw-away for Donald Trump. Almost all of them have manipulated with their financial power favors to hold the most sacred posts in the history of America. Not only has Donald Trump's pick Steve Bannon, for Chief Strategist, and a role on the National Security Council, and Jeff Sessions for Attorney Genera been endorsed and members of the KKK,, Donald Trump, himself, has been endorsed by the KKK, and there are other staff picks with the same types of hate crime groups affiliations, which is a direct violation of the First Amendment, which reads, protects religious freedom by prohibiting the establishment of an official or exclusive church or sect. Betsy De VOS-Wants Guns in Schools, America would like Guns out of Schools.  Our children have died enough!  Direct safety issues for all parents to choose with a referendum on a Federal Special Election.Betsy De VOS also wants the Federal Government to use vouchers for public schools, this opens the door for the State Government to force Americans to pay taxes to support religion, other than the Parents Religion in the school, as decided by legislation in both state and Federal levels, is a direct violation of the First Amendment’s guarantee of religious liberty. In America, all religious activities should be supported with voluntary contributions. The first Amendment reads: “Congress shall make no law respecting an establishment of religion, or prohibiting the free exercise thereof.” Also known as separation of church and state, it effectively means that the government cannot endorse religion in general or favor one religion over another. Today’s “separation of powers” is no longer between the three original, constitutionally created, branches of government; but rather a branch consisting of the president, his supporters in Congress and their mutual supporters on the federal bench; with a huge majority gained by gerrymandering for many years.  Everything is rigged to turn America into a Dictatorship.  We are trying to believe our Judges will defend the constitution without bias, and bring our country back to the two-party equal balance of power, with the Judiciary branch as the partisan balance of the two-party system.  This election was won with power, money, and constitutional fraud.  We cannot let America be a one-party system. We are not a corporation, we are a country!  We will not be sold off to the highest bidder or to a country who is attempting to overthrow our United States of America. Donald Trump is in violation of more than a few Constitutional violations; and, We the People, are petitioning to remove him and his cabinet and staff from office, as well as, Paul Ryan, Mike Pence, VP and any other republicans or democrats who voted for any of Trumps nominations, staff, and Cabinet while awaiting trial after a new emergency committee chosen by the people in a national special election is appointed with the intent of removal, inquiry through emergency committee above, impeachment, and Grand Jury indictment.  None of these above named individuals should be in office until found guilty or not guilty.  It will be up to the people to vote at a special election just how to fill the vacancies left in our government.

Petition to family Court

CPS Corruption!!! Bring Haley & Wyatt home!!!

My civil rights as well as my children's were violated 1-20-17 & again on 1-24-17. Our 1st, 4th, 5th, 9th, & 14th amendments were disregarded. If I wasn't living in this nightmare I wouldn't believe it. This can & will happen to you. My oldest son age 17 had gotten in some petty trouble, & developed a drug addiction. He was diagnosed with ODD & Conduct Disorder.  I got behind in bills, & my car broke down. Visiting him & family counseling was almost a 3hrs away. I was offered help through CPS division program by the education advocate while resolving issues of truancy. My youngest Wyatt (who has been diagnosed with autism, developmental delays, limited speech, separation anxiety, & sleep disorder) was never referred to home instruction, & I was having issues enrolling my daughter into Ecot. Despite repeated attempts no one noticed or help my kids until their truany went from Sept to Dec. Admitting Wyatt was never assigned a home instructor, & Haley's enrollment issue was "miscommunication & misunderstanding that was no fault of the mother" by my children's truancy officer. Not only did CPS lie to me, but they have lied about me. My kids & I were going through a hard time, & instead of helping me with resources they kidnapped my children. Wyatt was severely tramatized when his brother was in rehab for 4months. Being torn from his only home he's ever known right when he was showing improvement makes no since. My daughter Haley is in foster care as punishment because she said her & Wyatt were unsafe with the only family member they approved. That same family member was the one who made lies anyomously in hopes of getting Wyatt's SSI disability benefits & back pay. Meanwhile my oldest relapsed, & is in hiding & CPS is not concerned because he will be 18 in 5 months. No evidence, no charges, no choices, & I had full custody. When I tried to save my children before it was too late. They lied & told police I had a history of drug abuse so they could separate & get temporary custody. They achieved this on hear say. Haley is 6times more likely to be abused, raped, or murdered in foster care. I have no idea where she is. The entire time I have not been able to see my children for no reason. To get me to do what they want I've been repeatedly told the alternative is I'll never get them back. I have never abused or neglected my kids!!! Since 1-20-17 my kids have been neglected & abused by CPS!!! They have went against our civil rights & I've been completely helpless. My family torn apart based on lies. 80% of calls that CPS receive are false. They kidnap children from wonderful loving homes more than they remove abused or neglected children. With my son's addiction, & my youngest special needs so many probation officers, caseworkers, & aids come in & out of my home. Never has any of them accused me of neglect or drug use. A very dear friend who has watched my children grow up works for the agancy. He would never use his position to break rules & I would never want him to. Still he was questioned, & intimated to not tell the truth. Please sign this petition. Please help me bring my children home. If you would've told me this story a month ago I wouldn't have believed it. I wouldn't wish this nightmare on anyone. I fear for my children's well-being, & their future. Not all CPS or foster homes bad, but statics prove that so many do more harm than good. This can & will happen to so many!!! My children have the right to live a happy, healthy, life without fear of the government. Stop this from happening to more innocent families, & bring Haley & Wyatt home!!! Please say a prayer for Nathan that he turns himself in, so he can get the treatment he needs. I'm so lost without my children, I can't imagine how horrible this is for them. CPS doesn't build strong families. They rip them apart. My children have never known any family other than us 4. Until Nathan needing treatment our entire lives we stood strong together. CPS has completely separated us all for no reason. No evidence no proof. I have lost all faith in the system.

Petition to President Donald Trump, Melania Trump

Force Billionaires to Sell all Subsidiary Companies to the Employees, via Eminent Domain

300 greedy Americans have corrupted our U.S. Congress into decreasing their tax rates over the past 30 years, so that they could buy up ALL of our 14,000 American Media Companies, as well as ALL of our other Industries.. in order to make themselves BILLIONAIRES.  They feel no LOYALTY to America or its Lofty Goals.. only to their own gratification.. at American Expense. They have expressed the desire to DEGRADE the American Lifestyle in order to make Americans more willing to accept Lower Wages in return for their Labor. In short, America has been conquered from WITHIN by greedy people. A List of which can be found at www.Forbes.com Using a Federal Citizen's Initiative (its Constitutional, 24 States have it in place) to bypass our Corrupted U.S. Congress, we can allow the Public to Vote on using Eminent Domain to Force COMPANIES that own Other Companies.. to SELL their Stock to the Employees w/Federal Financing.  The Taxes & Mortgage Interest on all of these Sales can be used to Pay OFF the 20 TRILLION dollars of DEBT foisted upon us by our Corrupted Congress as well as paying for the other Improvements our Nation Needs. 100 MILLION Americans, FREED from this Monopolistic TYRANNY will immediately improve their own incomes rather than sending all profits UP the Ownership Chain to Billionaires.. and become instantly more curious about how to run their Own Business..  We need a Ten Year Moratorium on Companies being able to Buy Stock in other Companies.. Profits should be Taxed and/or distributed to Investors (ie; Real People.. not "Entities"). We will need MORE Jobs from now on, not LESS. And, of course, we should roll back our IRS rules to when President Dwight D. Eisenhower was in office, as they still had the High Graduated Tax Rates in place that were MEANT to stop Billionaires from being CREATED.  A lesson learned from our "Great Depression" era.. when People Who Don't NEED Anything were allowed to just Suck all Capital out of our ECONOMY.
