Lower the Flags to half staff for Opportunity

For those keeping track, or perhaps anyone that follows space oriented news, on February 12th, 2019 NASA JPL failed to receive a response from the Opportunity rover now standing in restful silence in the Perseverance Valley. For many people this rover was the embodiment of the good will and inquisitive nature of all humankind, for those involved in the scientific community and those not. Opportunity accomplished remarkable feats in its fifteen year tenure on the martian surface, from being the longest distance traveled on the surface of another world at 45.16 km (28.06 mi) while also being the longest running rover mission to date. All of these great feats accomplished while far exceeding its original mission time of 90 days. For me, Opportunity is a symbol for many things: human ingenuity, craftsmanship, willpower and our desire to learn and understand more about our universe. I was in the fourth grade when Opportunity landed on Mars. For more than half my life I've followed the broadened wisdom and knowledge gained by this brave pioneer. The news today hit me and many I know like a meteorite. I feel it is both appropriate and necessary to honor the passing of one of Earth's greatest explorers by flying the United States Flag at half staff. Unfortunately, according the US Flag code, only the President of the United States has the authority to order such an act. I implore everyone that reads this to support this petition and help our species honor our robotic comrade.Mr. President, help us honor Opportunity.

Protect the Special Prosecutor Robert S. Mueller from Removal

To Whom It May Concern: NOV 2018 UPDATE: The removal of Attorney General Jeff Sessions from the Department of Justice and removal of Deputy Attorney General Rod Rosenstein from overseeing the Russia Investigation crosses a red line set to protect the Russia Investigation. This investigation, one of the most important in U.S. history, must be allowed to run its course without interference. Please help protect the Special Prosecutor Robert S. Mueller from removal. Sincerely, Concerned U.S. Citizens  Sources: [Sessions forced resignation] https://www.nbcnews.com/politics/justice-department/president-trump-has-replaced-ag-sessions-here-s-what-means-n933676 [Rosenstein taken off Russia probe] https://thehill.com/policy/national-security/415591-acting-ag-to-take-over-oversight-of-russia-probe --- ORIGINAL TEXT ---- I am writing this petition to rally support for the protection of the special counsel to the U.S. Justice Department Robert S. Mueller. The investigation into Russian interference in the 2016 U.S. Presidential Election is one of the most important investigations in U.S. history and it should be allowed to run its course. This investigation is about more than party politics -- it hits at the absolute core of the American people's trust in the government we elect. The revelations listed below, which have come to light at various points since Rod Rosenstein appointed Robert S. Mueller as special prosecutor, present serious concern that Donald J. Trump and the GOP establishment may be trying to subvert due process: 1.) Donald J. Trump tried to fire Robert S. Mueller in June 2017 -- His own White House counsel, Donald McGahn, threatened to quit and refused to order the Justice Department to fire Mueller (per NYT). 2.) Trump White House Releases Devin Nunes' Memo on FISA warrants -- The Justice Department classified the release of such memo "extraordinarily reckless" and the FBI has "grave concerns about material omissions of fact that fundamentally impact the memo's accuracy" (per CNN). 3.) Devin Nunes' return to lead the U.S. House of Representative's Russia investigation -- He previously had temporarily recused himself for potentially disclosing classified information to the Trump White House (per The Atlantic). 4.) Peter Strzok and Lisa Page text messages reveal a "secret society" at FBI - GOP establishment attacks two FBI officials for anti-Trump bias based on text message exchanges. Page no longer worked for the Mueller investigation at the time of the revelation and Strzok was immediately reassigned off of the team (per CNN). Please sign this petition and show our elected officials how concerned you are that Donald J. Trump and the GOP establishment may be trying to undermine one of the most important investigations in U.S. history. Sincerely, Concerned Americans Everywhere

Petition to Bruce Rauner, Donald J. Trump

Free Wesam Zumut, an innocent man wrongfully convicted!

This petition has been created on behalf of my brother Wesam Zumot that involves him in a story that took turn for the worst. Many times we hear the phrase “At the wrong place, at the wrong time”. This has basically been the story of my brother Wesam’s life. During the times when my brother was not incarcerated, he was working hard to support his family. He comes from a cultural background where respect and loving people were his biggest strengths.  That all changed, when one day my brother got physically attacked by a group of 5 people in a vehicle. This was for no reason, but to attack him and take his life away. The instinct that my brother had at that moment, was to protect himself through self-defense. This happened during the time my brother was working at night, and was driving home alone in the late evening. He was followed, and then stopped due to this unforeseen moment. He was being shot at. The person that was shooting at my brother, got shot due to my brother being scared and killed him. The gun had flew out of his hand, and he drove away from being petrified of the situation. The gun was never to be found, and no evidence. Due to no evidence to be found, he was charged with first degree murder, and not looked at as a young man defending himself. He has been sentenced for 25 years for gun possession, and another 20 years for murder. He has been incarcerated since the year 2002, and has not been given the opportunity to have parole.  Our judicial system has failed him due to neglecting his situation of self-defense, and basing his sentencing with no substantial evidence, but was based on him causing this on his own, and intended to take someone’s life. He has spent most of his life in prison, based on half a story that was not presented factually. This has caused a heart broken family, and has distressed my parents throughout the years.  I was getting threats that my life would be over, not even realizing what was happening to me. We had to get up and move to a place where we can live and be free from this happening to us. Till this day we will always fight for my brother’s innocence, and to support him throughout this terrible journey. The case that has been made is flawed, and unethical. Lawyers have taken advantage of our situation to ask for thousands of dollars to help us with this case that should have not gotten to this extent. We constantly hear about innocent people being incarcerated for year and years, while they are sitting in a jail cell hating themselves, and feeling left alone, when deep down they knew they were defending themselves.  I stand with my brother, and have supported him through the many changes he has made, and the wonderful approach he has taken, regardless of his situation. His conduct and spirits alone should be looked at as a reason to stand with me, and help me bring justice to my brother Wesam’s life. I pray and ask for the help of those to help our family. Please take the time to spread the word, and sign this petition. This may not be a huge part of your life, but it is a huge part of mine. I will always fight for his justice, and pray that he is given at least a chance to live a life that should have been lived, and that is not incarcerated for something he was defending, and this is his LIFE! This petition is to give him a chance to truly defend himself with the truth, and the truth only. Thank you for your support
