Stop Punishing Domestic Violence Victims and their Children! Stop Child Trafficking by CPS
In 2002, at the age of just 22 years old- I was the victim of Domestic Violence at the hands of my partner. I had three young children, ages 5, 4 and 1 at the time of the incident. We were living in San Diego County, California. I called the police. That turned out to be the biggest mistake of my life. At 22 years old, with what seemed to be a bright future ahead of me… I lost everything. It turns out, in San Diego, exposing your children to Domestic Violence is a crime. Law Enforcement reported me being victimized with children present in the home, to Child Protective Services. 23 days after the incident happened, CPS removed my children. It was a Friday. The Friday before Easter. In Fact, they were taken away from the Easter Party at the daycare center they attended. My youngest child was still being breastfed at the time. They were taken from what the social worker described as a "loving mother", and placed in a Foster Home with complete strangers. Despite the fact that I had never spanked, or even yelled at my children- I was no longer allowed to see them unsupervised again. I was treated worse than a pedophile. My youngest was weaned from me against both of our wills. They wouldn't allow me even to pump breast milk to provide to him! What cruelty to inflict on an infant and his Mother. The following Tuesday- after waiting the longest 4 days of my life… I went before the judge in court. I was treated like a felon. A child abuser. The lowest of low. I was told that I was guilty of the "Failure to protect my children from witnessing Domestic Violence". I thought a mistake had been made. I was the victim here. Why was I being punished? Why were my innocent babies being punished? I was given a pamphlet about having my children removed, and assigned a public defender. She told me I needed to do something called "Waive Jurisdiction", and then my children would be released back to me. Of course I would waive it, I thought. If that is what would get my babies back home to me, I would do anything... That ended up being a lie. In fact, me waiving jurisdiction helped me, in part, lose my Supreme Court appeal. That and my Public Defender's failure to file in a timely matter. To make a long story short, for an entire year, I was in court almost weekly- sometimes multiple times per week- fighting for my children. The court assigned them each a public defender as well. The PD's fought hard… To keep the children from me, their mother. I went through Psychological evaluations, parenting classes, even DV counseling on "how to not be a victim". I did everything I was told, and more. I lost my job over this. I became homeless over this. All the while, each week- I had faith that the judge would realize her mistake, and let my children come home. She never did. Week after week, I saw babies who were born drug addicted, be returned home to their addict Mothers. Children who were sexually, and physically abused- returned home to their abusers. But me? My children? They hadn't been affected by any of those situations. They had a loving mother. A good home. A happy life. But they were never to return home again. Fast Forward to now- nearly 15 years later. The children were placed in a permanent guardianship with my estranged mother and step father. (He had a prior DV conviction, but CPS still found this to be a suitable home for them since his conviction was more than 10 years old). My Mom and Step Father decided they didn't want to care for the baby- so he was sent away. His name was changed. Sibling visits happened three times in 15 years. I haven't seen him since he was 7 years old. And prior to that- he was 2 the last time I held him in my arms. The other two children haven't seen him in 12 years. The 3 children I went on to have later in life, have never seen him. The court thought this was fine. Then there were the Public Defenders assigned to the children. They argued that because the baby was 1 at the time he was removed, no "sibling bond" existed. They said the 4 and 5 year old would not suffer detriment, first losing their mother, then their brother. That was false. We all have suffered greatly. When I tried to speak up about this in Court, I was reprimanded and charged with "having an anger problem." Yeah. I'm angry. Wouldn't you be? No mother should EVER have to grieve the loss of a child/children, especially when they are still alive!!! I have seen the children as much as possible over the years. These visits depended on my relationship with my mom. If she was angry with me, she would use my children as a weapon to control me. She once deprived me of speaking to them for more than a year, and of seeing them for almost two. My mother never allowed them to come and live with me again, as they desired, because she found out shortly after becoming their guardian- that guardianships are financially rewarding. My two girls grew up in a home where they were often spanked, beat, screamed at, belittled, referred to as "foster kids", despite being the biological grandchildren of my own mother, and lashed out at. They were constantly told horrible things about me, how I didn't want them, or love them. That I didn't love God, and had my children taken away for my sins… They were homeschooled, against my will. They were converted to a religion against my own. Medical decisions were made, contrary to my wishes… Their upbringing went against everything I had ever hoped for them. They went through a childhood that I ran away from as a child, and never came back to. 15 years later- I am just a shell of the happy, fun loving, optimistic girl I was back then. There is no more hope for a future for me. My youth is gone, and so is their childhood years that could have been spent with their Mother who loves them. There has only been a countdown to death for me now. Thanks to calling 911 to protect and help me, on that fateful day in 2012… I am now $170,000+ in debt to Child Support and to Legal Fees charged by San Diego County for the children's Public Defenders. (You know, the ones who fought for the "best interest" of my children). I have this debt, which continues to accumulate every single day, only because I REFUSED to sign away my parental rights to allow my children to be freed for adoption! I can't hold a professional license or certification. I can't work a real job. I cannot have a passport. I will never own a house, or know what it's like to have good credit… I am a deadbeat parent, on paper. A mother who looks like she ran out on her children, and avoided child support for 15 years! But that isn't who I am. I am a victim. I am a brokenhearted mother who has spent the last 15 years wishing for death, over standing by helplessly, watching her children be legally kidnapped by the government. I am an American. An American who has wondered what happened to her constitutional rights, and the rights of her children. I am a prisoner. A prisoner who has never been convicted of a crime, or received a sentence that can be commuted, or pardoned. Even a murderer knows how long he will pay the price for his crime… San Diego County, and the State of California have sentenced me and my children to LIFE inside the prison of our own mind. No chance of parole. No appeals. I am a runaway. At the age of 37 years old, I have been so traumatized by what happened to me all of those years ago, that I live in constant fear. I went on to have three more children. They are wonderful, and precious. Everytime I feel threatened to be exposed for this past tragedy that was forced on me and my older children- I pack up, and leave. I start life somewhere else. I shouldn't have to live like a fugitive, when I have never done ANYTHING wrong. But I do. I am starting this petition because I don't want any other mother or child to EVER experience what I have gone through. If you google CPS/ Legal Baby Stealing- you will be shocked at what this corrupt organization does to separate families, and profit from giving their children away to adoptive and foster parents. It's a multi-million dollar industry! It's sickening, and San Diego CPS has even been cited recently, by a Grand Jury, for GROSS MISCONDUCT. If they could so easily steal my life away from me, at the age of 22 years old- it could happen to any of you who are reading this. Please consider signing my petition to change the laws governing Child Protective Services, and a mother's rights when she has done nothing wrong- her only crime being to trust law enforcement when she has been the victim of a violent crime. Please support me in seeking a Pardon from a crime I never even committed, nor was charged with, from Governor Brown, and President Trump. This will save my life! This will save the lives of my wonderful children, who deserve happiness- and to be freed from this unjust act committed by our government. It may be too late to recapture the 15 years we missed together, as a family- but it is NEVER too late to have justice prevail, and be vindicated! In the last 15 years, I have written every single President and First Lady of the United States. I have written Dateline NBC, I have written Dr. Phil and Oprah. I have written the Governor of California, too. NOBODY has cared about me, or my children. I have even tried to request a PRESIDENTIAL Pardon!! I was told that I couldn't even apply for one, because I am not a convicted criminal. What? Really? You could have fooled me, because my life and happiness- even my health, has been taken from me. I have served nearly 15 years of what I would consider, a never ending sentence. San Diego County broke the law. They carelessly threw my life away, with no thought of me or my children. They did this for Money. Power. Greed. Control. Please stand with me today, and MAKE IT ILLEGAL TO TAKE AWAY THE PARENTAL RIGHTS AND CHILDREN OF A LOVING PARENT, JUST BECAUSE HE/SHE REPORTED DOMESTIC VIOLENCE TO LAW ENFORCEMENT. Grief never expires! Help those who cannot help themselves. At 22, I didn't know what to do when CPS removed my children for the "potential of witnessing future incidents of domestic violence". I just listened to the attorney, because she was wiser- because she knew more. She would pretend to help me, then go have lunch with the same people fighting to keep my children away from me. Boy, is our world in trouble when we start prosecuting people for things that "might" happen! You're only as free as you think you are. I have known now, for 15 years, that the USA is NOT free. If you are ever so unlucky as to have the government gain access to your life, or children- when the government is done with you, you'll wish you could lay down in a hole somewhere, and just die. You'll feel like you died each day, inside, as I have for the last 15 years. :-( Please sign this petition. Please ask Governor Jerry Brown to pardon me, to offer a formal apology for what happened to me and my children, and to create a new law protecting crime victims and their children, from persecution by CPS and the law enforcement agencies who are supposed to protect them. Please ask our President, Donald J. Trump, to issue a Presidential Pardon to me, to offer a formal apology on behalf on the State of California, and the County of San Diego, for what happened to me and to my children, and to create a Federal Law protecting crime victims and their children, from persecution by CPS and the law enforcement agencies who are supposed to protect them. I sat around paralyzed by fear and sadness, for the last 15 years, waiting for someone to knock on my door, and tell me a horrible mistake had been made, and that they had come to "right the wrong". That knock will never come. I know that now. I need to be the change I want to see in the world. I owe that to my children. I owe that to myself. I want my life back. I want to start living it. Please help me? Please help to ensure that no other innocent Mother and child EVER has to face being torn away from each other by Child Protective Services, and Family Court.
Petition to Truckers United For Freedom
Repeal The ELD Mandate And The 14 Hour Rule
Three of the worst federal regulations that govern the trucking industry are: The Electronic Logging Mandate (ELD) The 14 Hour rule The 30 minute Break The ELD is a violation of American's Constitutional Rights. The 14 hour rule limits shift flexibility for the truck driver, which creates less than desirable travel conditions on America's roads. The 30 minute break is an unnecessary regulation considering that drivers routinely stop for rest breaks throughout their day. Therefore, it is problematic and stressful for drivers to follow this rule. The Federal Motor Carrier Safety Administration received 580 million dollars in 2016 to regulate the trucking industry and they claim that these regulations will save 26 lives a year but they have not provided the information on how they came to this conclusion. The members of the trucking industry feel that these regulations were created in the interest of crony capitalism and that these regulations are having an adverse effect in regards to safety on America's roads. Nearly 25% of all fatalities in accidents that involve large trucks are truck drivers. Truck drivers have a stake in safety as much as anyone else and they should have a voice in the matter, too. Please, sign the petition in order for our members of Congress to understand the importance of removing these heinous regulations. We want Title 49 U.S. Code section 31137 repealed and there shall be no replacement of a similar law.We want the repeal of 49 CFR 395 Subpart B - Electronic Logging DevicesWe want the repeal of 49 CFR 395.3 (2). "14 Hour Period". We want to have shift flexibility to drive up to 11 hours before being required to take a 10 hour break, without a continuous running clock.We want the repeal of 49 CFR 395.3 (3) (ii) Rest Breaks. We know when to take a break without being told that we are required to take one.We want an assigned committee of truck drivers to advise the DOT, FMCSA, and all House and Senate Committees and Subcommittees. All new laws and regulations must pass through the truck driver committee before being applicable for legislation to ensure that the interest of truck drivers, owner-operators, and small fleet owners are appropriately taken into consideration for economic plausibility and safety for the members of the trucking industry and for the general public.

URGE NEWS MEDIA TO EXPOSE TRUTH ABOUT KAI THE HITCHHIKER'S INVESTIGATION
This petition is a request to the above named media outlets to report the list of evidentiary facts listed below, which are corroborated by forensic reports and transcripts on Kai the Hitchhiker Legal Support Page on Facebook. Kai, otherwise known as Caleb McGillvary, is the subject of a heroic video with over 23 million views on Snapper Laughs. He has been held for almost 4 years without trial for allegedly killing the man who drugged and raped him. The list is as follows: 1.) The prosecutor broke the law (NJSA 45:9-18) and undermined the New Jersey Attorney General Standards for providing services to victims of sexual assault by pretending Robert Pandina was a medical doctor capable of examining a survivor of rape. This is evidenced by page 91-93 of the Grand Jury transcripts. (Link below) 2.) The prosecutor lied to the grand jury about a rape kit being done on Kai, and that no semen was found: even though the rapists' semen was found on the rapist and no rape kit was done on Kai. This is evidenced on page 9 of the grand jury transcripts, and in the forensic lab reports. (Link below) 3.) The prosecutor's office rinsed out all bottles and glasses from the house without testing for date rape drugs. This is evidenced by UCSO Detective Edward Suter's report. (Link below) The under signed requests that the above three points be reported on by the petitioned media outlets, to expose these evidentiary facts to the public. https://www.facebook.com/pg/Kai-the-Hitchhiker-Legal-Support-Page-1594410144211919/photos/?tab=album&album_id=1773265889659676(^ Legal Docs.) https://www.facebook.com/1594410144211919/photos/a.1773265889659676.1073741831.1594410144211919/1636979173288349/?type=3&theater(^ pg. 92 grand jury trans.) https://www.facebook.com/1594410144211919/photos/a.1773265889659676.1073741831.1594410144211919/1636976456621954/?type=3&theater(^ pg. 9 grand jury trans.) https://www.facebook.com/1594410144211919/photos/a.1773265889659676.1073741831.1594410144211919/1636754609977472/?type=3&theater(^ forensic lab report)https://www.facebook.com/1594410144211919/photos/a.1773265889659676.1073741831.1594410144211919/1677262139260052/?type=3&theater(^ forensic lab report)https://www.facebook.com/1594410144211919/photos/a.1773265889659676.1073741831.1594410144211919/1632658240387109/?type=3&theater(^ histopathology report) https://www.facebook.com/1594410144211919/photos/a.1773265889659676.1073741831.1594410144211919/1632658250387108/?type=3&theater(^ Suter's report) (JM) https://www.facebook.com/1594410144211919/photos/a.1773265889659676.1073741831.1594410144211919/1650883385231261/?type=3&theater (JM) https://www.facebook.com/1594410144211919/photos/a.1773265889659676.1073741831.1594410144211919/1650883265231273/?type=3&theater (RM) https://www.facebook.com/1594410144211919/photos/a.1773265889659676.1073741831.1594410144211919/1651219608530972/?type=3&theater(^^^ witness reports of Kai appearing drugged)
Petition to California Governor, California State Senate, California State House
Vote NO on AB-1726 !
Honorable Governor Brown: Despite the strong opposition from many Asian American organizations, California legislature passed AB-1726 (Bonta) this month. AB-1726, in essence, is a duplicate of AB-176 (Bonta) that you vetoed last year. We applaud your previous decision and we urge that you take the same action this time again. Regrettably, AB-1726 is equally divisive, unfair, unscientific, and infeasible. We believe that your concern over its predecessor bill AB-176 holds true in this current case: “Dividing people into ethnic or other subcategories may yield more information, but not necessarily greater wisdom about what actions should follow. To focus just on ethnic identity may not be enough.” AB-1726 is clearly divisive and unfair. It does not stipulate the collection of similar racial data from any group other than the Asian Americans Pacific Islanders. The bill, for example, does not require Cuban Americans, or Mexican Americans to report their ethnicities other than the generic “Hispanic.” Similarly, it does not require Jewish Americans, Arab Americans or Irish American to report ethnicities other than the generic “White.” It is indisputable that those sub-groups within the Hispanics and Whites are ethnically and culturally diverse. Singling out Asian Americans for stratification is not only unfair to Asian Americans, but also to all Americans. AB-1726 is unscientific. It confuses ethnicities with national origins. For instance, China as a country officially recognizes 56 ethnic groups among its citizens, including, for example, Korean, Hmong, Muslim and Mongolian. So identifying oneself as “Chinese” or “Taiwanese” doesn’t disclose that person’s true ethnic and possible cultural background. Furthermore, the impact of the citizenship of one’s ancestry -- and in many cases multiple citizenships within the family tree -- is not necessarily a deciding factor of that person’s genetic makeup, or socioeconomic situation and educational status. Therefore, such stratification tactic encoded by AB-1726 wouldn’t have been a useful factor in allocating educational or health resources of California. In addition to all the problems above, this bill cannot be realistically implemented. Besides putting substantial costs on California taxpayers, the system is not intended to, nor is it able to, monitor and verify the accuracy and integrity of the self-identified data generated under this bill. California does not need a bill that could only divide our communities. California does not need more heightened racial tensions. Please veto AB-1726.

BRING BACK CHICK-FIL-A SWEET POTATO WAFFLE FRIES
In 2011, Chick-Fil-A discontinued their short-lived sweet potato fries from the menu. William F. "Woody" Faulk, the Chick-Fil-A president of brand strategy and design added the famous fries to their menu because "sweet potato fries have been one of the most popular requests we have received from customers, so we are pleased to offer this new and exciting product." Yet now, those craving the sweet, savory, and crispness of the freshly fried sweet potatoes must endure the struggle of knowing that the unique flavor of Chick-Fil-A's sweet potato waffles may never be experienced... EVER... AGAIN. What an atrocity. What an outrage. We will continue to fight until our demands are met. For a medium serving of these sweet potato fries, one will consume 220 calories, 10 grams of fat, 31 grams of carbohydrates, 115 milligrams of sodium, and 8 grams of sugar. Furthermore the fries provide 20% of your daily serving of dietary fiber, essential in maintaining the digestive systems, along with 20% of your daily serving of Vitamin C, and a whooping 210% of your daily serving of Vitamin A. On the contrary, the medium serving of regular potato fries sets you back 360 calories, 18 grams of fat, 43 grams of carbohydrates, and 280 milligrams of Sodium. Not to mention, with the addition of the restaurant's various sauces (which are admittedly delicious), the regular fries become further detrimental to your health. The normal fries provide little benefit in vitamins and other necessary nutrients, lacking in flavor, boldness, healthiness, and sexyness of their superior sweet potato counterparts. The demand for sweet potato fries is at its highest. With a subreddit dedicated just for sweet potato fries on r/ChickFilA, as well as the existence of numerous petitions in the past, surely the people should get what they want as loyal customers to this wonderous establishment. If needed, we will take this all the way to the Supreme Court. Clearly, the right to consume sweet potato fries is protected under the Declaration of Independence of 1776, under the clause, stating that all people are created equal and have unalienable rights, such as "the preservation of life, & liberty, & the pursuit of happiness". Happiness cannot be pursued without sweet potato fries. Perhaps the 28th amendment of the United States should be, "The right to eat sweet potato fries." It would be the shortest amendment, ever. It's that simple. Jon Bridges, Brent Ragsdale, Lynn Chastain, Andrew Cathy, Cliff Robinson, Dan T. Cathy, Bubba Cathy, Michael T. Duke, Brent Fielder, Dr.Crawford W. Loritts Jr., James Buck McCabe, Steven S. Reinemund, Steven A. Robinson, and Timothy Tassopoulos. Our only wish is to have our beloved sweet sweet sweet potato fries back on the menu. Our voices matter. It is up to us to stand up and raise our fists. Eat mor chikin? More like Eat mor sweat potaytays The time to change is NOW.

Abolish Daylight Saving Time in Texas
Texas State Senator Menéndez and State Representatives Flynn and Isaac have introduced three bills (with identical language), during the 2017 Texas legislative session, which would end Daylight Saving Time in our state, beginning next year. Arizona and Hawaii already do not observe DST, so Texas would be joining two other states which have decades of experience keeping standard time year-round, even while the other states change their clocks twice a year. The timing is perfect; since DST was made permanent in 1966, we now have a full fifty years of data and experience to show that this experiment in trying to shape citizens' behavior by changing the time twice a year has not brought the promised blessings. Daylight Saving Time is a federal law which reaches into the homes of almost every citizen in the United States, and causes negative disruptions to our personal lives twice a year, including: - Strain on family life- Harm to physical health- Reduction in work productivity (For example, here is a recent article from the Boston Globe highlighting selected research about the effects of DST: https://www.bostonglobe.com/news/nation/2017/03/10/proof-daylight-saving-time-dumb-dangerous-and-costly/kOqQs7T33rYHMEnCraQSJO/story.html ) Yet the daylight saving time federal law allows any state which wishes to, to remain on standard time year-round. This is a simple bill that easily attracts bi-partisan support. We urge the Texas Senate and House, and Governor Abbott, to pass the bill to abolish Daylight Saving Time in Texas, in the 2017 legislative session. Here is the full text of the bills (SB 238, HB 95, and HB 2400): AN ACT relating to daylight saving time. BE IT ENACTED BY THE LEGISLATURE OF THE STATE OF TEXAS: SECTION 1. Section 312.016, Government Code, is amended byadding Subsection (d) to read as follows: (d) The state, acting under the exemption provisions of the Uniform Time Act of 1966 (15 U.S.C. Section 260a(a)), is exempt from the provisions of that law that establish daylight saving time. The exemption provided by this subsection applies to both the portion of the state using central standard time as the official standard time and the portion of the state using mountain standard time as the official standard time. SECTION 2. This Act takes effect November 5, 2017, tocoincide with the end of daylight saving time for 2017.

(2) Any federal, state, regional, and local laws which would require any (individually or in combination) marking, recordkeeping, serialization or registration of any firearm parts, or of any objects which would later be made part of a firearm (whether or not the object would ultimately become a regulated part of a firearm), are also deemed to be null and void, as they are an obstacle to the people's ability to exercise the 2nd Amendment right, and are an obstacle to the full purposes and objectives of Congress. No further laws of the type in (1) and (2) shall be able to have any effect. CAVEATS, EXCEPTIONS: a) UNITED STATES MUNITIONS LIST (USML): Federal government may control by permit, and limit the use of, USML CATEGORY II, IV, V, VI, VIII, XIV, XV, and XVI items that are weapons, except for technical data or weapons and items routinely or commonly available in the civilian market. b) PROHIBITED PERSONS: It is unlawful for the following categories of persons to ship, transport, receive, or possess firearms or ammunition, to include any person: - convicted in any court of a crime punishable by imprisonment for a term exceeding one year, unless that crime was due to enforcement of a gun law of a State or a political subdivision of a state;- who is a fugitive from justice;- who is an unlawful user of or addicted to any controlled substance (as defined in section 102 of the Controlled Substances Act, codified at 21 U.S.C. § 802);- who has been adjudicated as a mental defective, due to the decision of a court, or has been committed to any mental institution, and due to the decision of a court, has been deemed unable to ship, transport, receive, or possess firearms or ammunition;- who is an illegal alien;- who has been discharged from the Armed Forces under dishonorable conditions, except that all such persons must have be given the right of appeal in a district court to address the issue of firearms and ammunition possession and use;- who has renounced his or her United States citizenship;- who is subject to a court order restraining the person from harassing, stalking, or threatening an intimate partner or child of the intimate partner Laws of a State or laws of a political subdivisions of a state that establish or attempt to expand upon these prohibited persons categories, shall have no force or effect. c) CAVEAT REGARDING EVIDENTIARY NEEDS OF POLICE, CUSTODY, AND IMPRISONMENT: Any persons who are taken into custody or who are about to be incarcerated can be relieved of arms by police, provided however that the affected individuals may petition the courts for relief and restoration of rights.
