Resignation or dismissal of FIFA president Gianni Infantino, a close friend of V. Putin

Dear Friends of the Ukrainian people who are the victims of Putin's aggression, FIFA president Gianni Infantino is a well known close friend of Vladimir Putin. On May 23, 2019 Infantino happily received the Order of Friendship from Putin:  https://www.devdiscourse.com/article/technology/1944343-column-infantinos-admiration-of-putin-leaves-fifa-exposed https://www.imago-images.com/offers/322313/Sport/Fussball/Fifa-Chef-Infantino-erhaelt-Freundschaftsorden-von-Putin?db=sport Photos presenting a happy Gianni Infantino receiving the medal of the Order of Friendship from Vladimir Putin himself.  Moreover, on February 24, 2022, after Putin began his massacre in Ukraine, at an online event, Infantino showed the world that even after Putin invaded Ukraine, Infanino never regretted supporting and legitimising Vladimir Putin after the occupation of the Crimean Peninsula in 2014. Instead of clearly denouncing Putin as invader of Ukraine, Infantino had a hallucinatory response, meant to divert attention from the subject. Moreover, FIFA blocked follow-ups to this question, according to Rob Harris' twitter account: https://mobile.twitter.com/robharris/status/1496908528736419843 "Rob Harris@RobHarrisGianni Infantino dodges question on Zoom about if he is keeping the Order of Friendship medal given to him by Vladimir Putin and FIFA silences media to prevent follow-ups when he doesn’t answer. " "Rob Harris@RobHarris·Feb 24Response to@RobHarrisVideo asking FIFA President Gianni Infantino if he'll retain the Order of Friendship medal given to him by Vladimir Putin and if he has any regrets about praising the Russian leader so strongly in recent years, especially when the initial invasion of Ukraine happened in 2014 " . It's already too much. By the time the journalist asked the question and Infantino had shown the world that he was still Putin's friend, all mankind already knew that Ukraine had been attacked with missiles and bombs from all sides at Putin's command. Gianni Infantino thus has his hands dirty with the blood of innocent Ukrainians, children, women, the elderly, and must leave the FIFA leadership immediately. As long as Gianni Infantino remains its president, FIFA legitimizes the slaughter of thousands of innocent people, incalculable destruction and unimaginable suffering. FIFA Governance Regulations, art. 24, para. 2, regarding the Roles, duties, powers, responsibilities of the FIFA President, provides the following:"While performing his activities, the President shall be, and thus contribute to FIFA being, a vanguard for promoting the following principles, rights and values ​​in particular:a) Integrity, ethics and fair play;b) Human rights and humanitarian values;c) Non-discrimination, gender equality, equal treatment in general, and the stance against racism;d) Solidarity and mutual respect in football as well as in society in general;e) Promoting friendly and peaceful relations within FIFA as well as in society in general for humanitarian reasons." Gianni Infantino, through his public support on February 24, 2022 and his  refusal to denounce his close friendship with Vladimir Putin, violated all five principles listed above. Infantino was thus unworthy to hold the position of FIFA president for even one more day. If he had a single atom of humanity, Gianni Infantino would have to resign voluntarily and with immediate effect. Unfortunately, we can't count on that. We ask the FIFA Council to immediately convene an Extraordinary FIFA Congress on the dismissal of Gianni Infantino from the FIFA leadership, based on the provisions of art. 25, paragraph 3 and of art. 28, para. 2, letter q. of the FIFA Statutes of 2019. We call on all FIFA member associations and federations to request the FIFA Council to immediately convene an Extraordinary FIFA Congress on the dismissal of Gianni Infantino from the FIFA leadership, based on the provisions of art. 25, paragraph 4 of the FIFA Statutes of 2019. If 1/5 of all FIFA members (national associations) request the convening of an extraordinary congress for the dismissal of Infantino, the FIFA Council is obliged to convene the Extraordinary Congress for the dismissal of Infantino and, according to the provisions of art. 25, para. 5 of the FIFA Statutes from 2019, "The member associations shall be notified of the place, date and agenda at least two months before the date of an Extraordinary Congress. The agenda of an Extraordinary Congress may not be altered." Please do this as soon as possible! Every second with Infantino at the helm of FIFA is an affront to the whole humanity.

Petition to New Jersey Supreme Court Justices

New Jersey Supreme Court Must Give a Proud Vet His Due Process Against The Court Itself.

Determined, decorated Vietnam Veteran needs your support to fight a Cover-up in New Jersey Supreme Court.  EVIDENCE: http://www.americans-working-together.com/attorney_ethics/id73.html ... Jack Cunningham's case is interesting, I have run into certain things in NJ courts myself… Statute of limitations issue is bogus… fraud has no limitation in federal court, and Statute of limitations runs from the time the fraud is found… It is an act to deceive, an act of fraud, an act to manipulate due process, - sanctions should be implemented – One of many cases spell this out… Referring both to the objective and subjective elements, we have held that qualified immunity would be defeated if an official "knew or reasonably should have known that the action he took within his sphere of official responsibility would violate the constitutional rights of the [plaintiff], or if he took the action with the malicious intention to cause a deprivation of constitutional rights or other injury." Harlow et al v. Fitzgerald, 457 U.S. 800; 102 S. Ct. 2727; 73 L. Ed. 2d 396; (1982). (Emphasis added) File a civil suit in the United States District Court for the District of New Jersey (federal court) - file this Civil Complaint under U.S.C. 28 §1331, federal question, civil actions arising under the Constitution, under U.S.C. 42 §1983, a civil action for deprivation of rights, and U.S.C. 42 §1985 a civil action for Conspiracy to interfere with civil rights against all Defendant’s you can list (growing list below)… you can do it pro se and file an application to proceed indigent… all documents are on the District of New Jersey (federal court)’s web site… State courts have concurring jurisdiction over this type of civil suit, it can be filed in state court BUT Federal Courts are more easygoing with Pro Se writings, minor errors in format and rules etc… And if a state attorney represented anyone, the challenge here would be if he was authorized to do so… i.e. an application filed for their service, defendant within the scope of employment… etc… if not.. it was fraud… Check out the principles of the Noerr-Pennington Doctrine… first Amendment Rights… you may have further elements to build your case… Void Judgments, move to vacate previous judgments for harmful errors, constitutional violations, fraud… etc The New Jersey Supreme Court Must Give Marine Vet John "Jack" Cunningham His Due Process.  It's a National Disgrace How He Has Been Treated By The State Of New Jersey.

Petition to Glenn Youngkin, Virginia Governor, Virginia State Senate, Don Scott

Give Felipe Layug III (Jun) a Second Chance - Help us get him home!

Do you believe in forgiveness, mercy and second chances? Since July of 2004, Felipe Layug III has been incarcerated on an 85-year sentence at the tender age of 21. He left behind his family and 2 sons. These past 17 years has allowed Felipe to define his focus and has afforded him time to mature within self. That said he can honestly say that this time has truly served its purpose in this phase of his life that has become a chapter and not an ending to his story. He has learned so much about himself, life, and others. He has also matured into his manhood being born through these trials and tribulations of mother nature. While incarcerated Felipe has cultivated himself mentally, spiritually, physically, and intellectually by learning skills, education, and acquiring certifications that equips him with the resourcefulness to depend on his ability in society and not crime once released. Felipe has embraced the work necessary to face his hang-ups to learn how to remove the thorns from the comprehension of his subconscious to prevent him from making the mistake of blaming others for the pain in his life or the pain of his past. It hasn't been easy for him, yet it was necessary which has taught him the power of choice regardless of who or what the outside influences present themselves to him as. He understands now that his life and the health of it is contingent upon the choices he makes from here on out and he has chosen the brighter side of life. With having and desiring so much he wants to offer from becoming the man his mother, father, and sisters dreamed of him becoming; and his sons being extremely proud of, we just ask that you take some time to consider what actually took place.       On July 26th, 2004 Felipe Layug and his co-de (co-defendant) were getting ready to head home and as they were walking passed a hallway door they walked passed 2 men standing and talking by their patio. His co-de looked at him with an intense stare and went back the same way they just had come from. He knew something wasn’t right about that look, so as soon as he came back around the corner he seen his co-de with his gun drawn while going through one of the victim’s pockets. Then the other victim stepped out the house and was surprised to see them out there and realized his friend was getting robbed. Up until that exact point he didn’t have anything to do with the situation. However, the second victim moved in the direction of his friend to probably assist him and that’s when he intervened… he drew his gun on him and told him to “chill.” He did not want the situation to turn into a possible shooting or a senseless murder. Then he let the second victim go and grabbed the first victim as his co-de searched the second victim for anything of value. He escorted the first victim into the apartment and stopped in the living room. As they stood there for four minutes the first victim offered Felipe what money he had left in his possession and he told him he didn’t want anything from him. His co-de asked where the car keys were, first victim said they were in the car, so they walked them to the car. Felipe got in the passenger seat, his co-de got in the driver seat and they drove off. His co-de was murdered that same night in an unrelated situation. Although we do not condone any of his crimes or charges, the belief that his sentencing was harsh is an understatement. From that incident Felipe was charged and convicted of 16 felonies, sentenced to 160 years with 75 suspended. Leaving him with 85 active years to serve, which is the rest of his natural life for a crime that was appropriate for a 10-15-year sentence due to the role he played in the crime of what took place. Felipe's family and friends are desperate for him to be released back to where he belongs. He has accepted his wrongful choices he made as a teenager, however his character and personality does nothing but bring positive vibes and enlightenment to the lives that interact with his presence. If you believe Felipe Layug lll deserves a second chance at freedom, family, and life then please take one more minute of your time to sign this online petition in support of the current governor releasing him of reducing his remaining sentence. He truly thanks you all for the time you have taken to read this info and for providing your assistance in whatever capacity you can. His family also thanks you for your thoughts and prayers in believing that this aim will turn out favorable for him. He will do right by the love, mercy, understanding invested.
