Help me keep my father from getting deported
This past year has been very hard for my family and I. We have gone through many obstacles that have challenged us and have left us vulnerable. About a week ago, my father was informed that he is at high risk for deportation. With new immigration policies and changes under the Trump administration, he may not be able to renew his work visa. In efforts to prove to the Immigration Court that my father is worthy of staying in this country I have created this petition and I am asking for your help. Here is a little bit of information about my father, Juan Ochoa arrived to the United States from a very poor life in Mexico at the age of seventeen in hopes of creating a better life for his family and for his future. For eighteen years Juan has been a productive member of society. He has worked and contributed to the community in many ways like every other U.S. citizen. Every year he has paid his taxes and he has no sort of criminal record. After a long day of work, Juan always looks forward to spending time with his family and catching up with them at the dinner table. As a U.S. citizen myself, I can assure you that my father is very proud to be a part of this country. At times I feel as if he is more patriotic than I will ever be. This is his country just as much as ours and for years all he has ever wanted is to officially become the U.S. citizen that he has always been. Without my father my family will suffer. Juan has two children with diagnosed and documented disabilities that require medical help and medication. If he were to get deported, his children will not be able to receive not only the proper medical help but also the proper education. Deporting him to Mexico would only leave more people suffering and in poverty. There is no future for our family in Mexico. I am asking you to please take a second of your day and to sign this petition if you agree in hopes of keeping my family together and to prove to the court that my father is worthy. We are not just numbers, we are people too.
Petition to Donald J. Trump
Demand the FBI interview Dr. Ford!
In September 2018, Dr. Christine Blasey Ford publicly alleged that U.S. Supreme Court nominee Brett Kavanaugh sexually assaulted her in 1982. The Federal Bureau of Investigation was given one week to probe allegations of sexual misconduct against Supreme Court nominee Brett Kavanaugh; most recently, sources say the agency could finish days early without interviewing key witnesses and parties including Dr. Ford herself. THIS IS UNACCEPTABLE. We demand the FBI interview Dr. Christine Blasey Ford now! In October 1991 Anita Hill bravely testified about the sexual harassment she experienced at the hands of Supreme Court nominee Clarence Thomas before the Senate Judiciary Committee. Exactly 27 years later, we're still here fighting for women survivors to be heard. Acceptance of rape culture and sexual violence is so entrenched in the United States of America that we are, once again, witnessing a woman bearing the burden of proof against a Supreme Court nominee. The facts are irrefutable: Kavanaugh lied repeatedly during his testimony. Toxic masculinity is a problem in this country and Kavanaugh is unfit to lead. Do the right thing! We wouldn't be here if it weren't for Dr. Christine Blasey Ford's bravery in demanding an FBI investigation in the first place. It makes NO sense NOT to interview her. In an OPED to the New York Times, Anita Hill said "There is no way to redo 1991, but there are ways to do better." Listen to Black women. Sign this petition to urge the FBI to interview Dr. Christine Blasey Ford! For all that she's been through, she deserves to be heard again. Do not leave her out of this process. Adhere to the demands of Dr. Ford and all survivors!

Stop the Separation of Immigrant Families
More than 2,000 children have been separated from their families because of Trump’s new zero tolerance policy. Families who are trying to immigrate into the United States are being stopped at the border and having their children ripped away from them. Parents are being told that their children are being taken away for baths only to never see them again. When the parents are deported there is no one left to care for the children so they are taken to what’s essey a concentration camp. There is no guarantee that these families will ever reunite again unless we as Americans do something!

Remove CNN and Jim Acosta from The White House Press Corps for their continued disturbance
The Narrative Times, a non-profit, is calling on The White House to block White House Correspondent Jim Acosta and any member of the CNN Staff from The White House for the continued disturbances during the press briefings. Their lack of respect causes the following problems: The White House is unable to communicate their message to reporters. The White House is unable to communicate their message to the American People effectively. Shows CNN and Mr. Acosta's continued lack of respect for the office. Notice I said office and not the president. When you are in The White House there is a certain level of decorum that is expected. The solution to the problem is to remove Mr. Acosta and all CNN reporters. If they would like to invoke their right to free speech that can do so from outside The White House Gates. The unnecessary political arguments and commentations make the briefings less professional and frankly that American People are tired of the lack of professionalism on CNN's part. See Examples Below: Jim Acosta White House Fit Sarah Huckabee Sanders speaking out against Mr. Acosta Very Respectfully, Michael Moates, The Narrative Times

Suspend or Cancel Trump's Twitter Account
“This is my megaphone. This is who I am. This is how I communicate. It’s the reason I got elected. It’s the reason that I’m successful.” Trump said this about Twitter to an advisor in 2017 (quoted in Bob Woodward's Fear). To the Chief Officers at Twitter: We the undersigned believe that presidential candidate, president-elect, and now president* Donald J. Trump has abused his Twitter account in such a way as warrants cancellation or suspension. We are grateful that you have already banned neo-Nazi Richard Spencer, Trump advisor Roger Stone, and others for violating Twitter rules, and ask that D.J. Trump not be allowed to continue violating those same rules with impunity. We also understand that tweeting is not a First Amendment right, as discussed in Salon, as explained clearly by CNN, and even addressed in a Twitter forum. Tweeting is speech conducted on a privately-run online platform governed by community standards and terms-of-service agreements. Even the ACLU said in August 2017 that it will no longer defend hate speech, particularly that of neo-Nazi, white supremacists. All of us recognize that Trump has in effect weaponized Twitter in an unfair and dangerous manner. Twitter policy states: All users must adhere to the policies set forth in the Twitter Rules. Failure to do so may result in the temporary locking and/or permanent suspension of account(s). Trump has demonstrably violated the following rules: Unlawful use: You may not use our service for any unlawful purposes or in furtherance of illegal activities. His vindictive Dec. 6 Tweet aimed at Boeing led directly to significant drop in stock price. His Dec. 12 Tweet aimed at Lockheed Martin, precipitating a 4% drop in stock value. Abusive Behavior: Violent threats (direct or indirect): You may not make threats of violence or promote violence, including threatening or promoting terrorism. The cyberbullying of steelworker union chief Chuck Jones, directly leading to death threats, was reported Dec. 8 in the NY Times. Harassment: You may not incite or engage in the targeted abuse or harassment of others. Trump's attack on a female college student is another example wherein the power of Twitter combined with Trump's status has directly resulted in personal destruction. Hateful conduct: You may not promote violence against or directly attack or threaten other people on the basis of race, ethnicity, national origin, sexual orientation, gender, gender identity, religious affiliation, age, disability, or disease. Trump's Nov. 30 Tweet threatening refugees is notable here as was his infamous rant against the American judge of Mexican descent. More recently we have the threatening of sports figures (whom he called "sons of bitches") exercising their freedom of speech, and the shameful attacks on the Mayor of San Juan while she deals with a catastrophe in Puerto Rico. These are just a few examples of violations that form a clear pattern, clear enough so that his Twitter abuse of nearly 300 people was graphically summarized in the New York Times. For these and other reasons the case has already been made by journalists for banning Trump from Twitter. Not surprisingly, and straight from the Nazi playbook, Trump has repeatedly referred to any critical news media as "the enemy of the people." Not included in the above is Trump's use of Twitter to avoid the press, whose duty it is to critically report to the public. Another category not found in Twitter rules is the reckless endangerment of entire populations. Trump's Dec. 22, 2016 tweet regarding nuclear weapons shows how the abuse of Twitter may accelerate global annihilation. His current tweets regarding North Korea undermine his own diplomats while moving us closer to nuclear conflict. And who's going to follow your rules if you change them to accommodate a single user who cannot follow them? Shameful. Since Trump has taken office, his use of Twitter to spread misinformation has accelerated to such a degree that it cannot be chronicled here. He lies to sheriffs, to the military, to the press, to his supporters, and repeats it all on Twitter. He has interfered in the prosecution of a terrorist by Tweeting his advocacy of the death penalty. He routinely attacks the judiciary, senators, companies who don't like his brand, and anybody that criticizes him, often using misinformation. Ultimately it is up to the officers of Twitter whether Trump is allowed to continue abusing people, institutions, corporations, and the planet with your powerful technology. To be blunt, Twitter is becoming with each day more complicit in everything Trump does and will do. People are increasingly demanding an explanation for Twitter's failure to enforce its rules, and the justification offered so far--that his tweets are newsworthy--is nothing more than greed. Ask yourselves, do you want to be remembered as the corporation that helped start a civil war, or World War III? Are you content to remain a fascist's megaphone, or does your company have an ounce of civic or global responsibility? We hope you make the right decision, and soon. Thank you for your attention.

Petition to Autism Centers, Hillary Clinton, Mexicans, muslims, Democrats, People with High Moral Stan, Taco Bell
Send Donald Trump to an Autism Center
This change will affect me greatly. After several years of Donald Trump trying to take away my creative liberty, me and my family are fed up. He's eaten all my Taco Bell reserved for ME! That Cheesy Gordita Crunch is MINE! He stole all the hours I deserved on the toilet! This man shows several symptoms of Autism, such as inappropriate social interaction, persistent repetition of words or actions, and repetitive movements. It is our duty as American citizens to get him care immediately.

No tax returns? Give us Donald Trump's credit score!
President-elect Donald Trump has not released his tax returns. We can understand him wanting to keep his privacy; however, we do not believe it is too much to ask to see his FICO score. The citizens of these United States have much of their lives dictated by this score. We deserve to know how these automated scores affect President Trump's life day-to-day.

Exempt Wartime Interpreters from President Trump's Executive Order Banning Immigration
As an U.S. Army Captain serving in Afghanistan, I was almost killed by Taliban fighters. My Afghan translator, Janis, saved my life. We made a promise to translators like Janis, who served alongside our troops, to help them immigrate to the United States.President Trump’s ban on all immigration of refugees breaks that promise to the thousands of Afghan and Iraqi wartime allies. The president's Executive Order shuts the door on thousands of foreign interpreters, our wartime allies, who served alongside our military since 2001. Enacting a four-month ban on ALL immigration of refugees and an outright ban on the immigration of Iraqis condemns thousands of our Iraqi wartime allies to languish and fend for themselves against the very enemies we asked them to help us fight.The blanket ban on immigration from Iraq and the four month moratorium on immigration from Afghanistan prevents our allies from reaching safety here in America and leaves countless thousands to be hunted for their service to the United States. If we commit to this, we will permanently harm our national security. Our credibility will be forever neutered if not eroded. Why would any potential ally ever trust America to keep its word again? It pains me to think how many US soldiers will now die in future wars because we couldn't recruit the local support that is often the difference between life and death. Moreover, this ban imposes a lifetime moral injury on our Iraq war veterans. Vietnam Veterans speak often of their half-century injury at having abandoned so many of our Vietnamese allies. Please ask President Trump to keep our promise to America’s veterans and allow for the Special Immigration Visa program to continue uninterrupted. Sincerely, Matt Zeller, Co-FounderNo One Left Behind
