Petition to Carolyn B. Maloney, Terry Cavanaugh, Brad Hoylman

Don't let Fox News call itself `news`

This petition asks that the FCC revoke Fox News' license until 'News' is removed from its branding, or until it revises its practices to conform with standards of broadcast journalism. The undersigned understand why the FCC does not want to limit protected speech, but demand the FCC enforce its mandate to protect the public interest as concerns broadcasting. The FCC states that "broadcast licensees may not intentionally distort the news," and that "rigging or slanting the news is a most heinous act against the public interest." So why is a cable TV channel allowed to lie, distort, and promote solely Republican causes under the banner of "news"? Since John Kerry's unsuccessful 2004 presidential bid, Fox News has had a clear right-wing agenda, and it has become steadily more biased since Obama's 2008 election. In the Trump era, it has been documented repeatedly (by Politico, by the Washington Post, by Newsweek) how the president repeats talking points from Fox, which in turn broadcasts pro-Trump messaging. Fox News employees join the Trump White House and vice versa; the line between the two is gone. We are witnessing for the first time on American soil televised propaganda, in the style of  fascist and authoritarian regimes. If you haven't noticed this on your own already, it's fully explained by investigative journalist Jane Mayer here.  According to the FCC website "there are two issues related to broadcast journalism that are subject to Commission regulation: hoaxes and news distortion." As measured by Politifact, Fox News is "Mixed factually and borderline Questionable based on poor sourcing and the spreading of conspiracy theories that later must be retracted after being widely shared." This constant stream of misinformation has had a direct impact on the the last several elections, essentially defrauding the nation. In April 2020 their science-denial and misinformation about the coronavirus pandemic is literally killing people. We say, enough, this is madness. Fox News is incompatible with democracy and public health. Right now this country is suffering an epidemic of ignorance. Trump is only a symptom; Fox News is a leading cause, a political operation masquerading as a journalism outlet. Enforcing our broadcasting rules is part of the cure. To be delivered to: FCC Enforcement Chief Rosemary Harold, the U.S. House Committee on Oversight and Reform, and the Office of NY State District 27, where Fox News has its main office and facilities.

Petition to United States Congress

Make June 14th a Holiday for the US Flag and 45th President - "Trump Flag Day"

Please sign & share Twitter, Instagram, Facebook, Signal, Telegram etc. You can also share this link > www.TrumpFlagDay.com anywhere! Flag Day and President Donald Trump's Birthday both coincidence on June 14th every year. What better way to finally proclaim Flag Day as a Federal National Holiday, than to combine it with the Birthday of our "Greatest President since Abraham Lincoln", President  Donald J. Trump. The day will be forever known as "Trump Flag Day".  Flag day was first celebrated by a grade school teacher in Waubeka, Wisconsin, in 1885. Teacher Bernard J. Cigrand. Cigrand spoke around the country promoting patriotism, respect for the flag, and the need for the Federal annual observance of a flag day on June 14, the day in 1777 that the Continental Congress adopted the Stars and Stripes.  Since 1885 dozens of attempts have been made to affirm Flag Day as a National Federal Holiday, by many prominent groups and organizations. Unfortunately all attempts have failed. But now with the President Trump's proclamation of "America First", it's time we merge both holidays into on one Federal Holiday on June 14th, Trump Flag Day. As proud Americans will celebrate the day with Regional and Local Parades and other events. We will display our Old Glory Flags as well as our Trump Flags, high and proud.  Please share and sign the petition. We will request Congress to make Trump Flag Day an official Federal Holiday. Regardless of the petition status we will still hold our first Trump Flag Day June 14, 2021 at a National and Regional level.  Thank you -Dion Cini

Petition to Amazon, Jeff Bezos

Remove All Donald Trump Products from Amazon​.​com

January 2021 Update: This petition was originally created in 2015 in response to Donald Trump's racist attacks on Mexicans and Latinx Americans at large during his speech announcing his run. Since then, Donald Trump went on to become President and do all the terrible and racist things he promised and worse. In the wake of the January 6th attack on the U.S. Capitol and coup attempt by Trump supporters at his encouragement, it has never been more urgent to take a stand against Trump's fascism. I urge Amazon to join Twitter, Facebook, YouTube, Reddit, Stripe, PGA, Shopify, Deutsche Bank, New York City, and many others in cutting ties with Donald Trump and his companies.As of January 13th, 2021 Amazon continues to profit from Donald Trump products sold on its platform.Original post from 2015:As a DREAMer and Latino American who recently graduated with a Bachelor's degree from American University, I am disgusted by the words of Donald Trump regarding immigrants, and particularly those from Mexico, which he called "rapists" and accused of generally being criminals. It's not lost on me that for him "Mexican" probably means any Latino, particularly undocumented immigrants. There was a time when Trump represented the American dream, when he published his book The Art of the Deal. I may not be considered an American by law, but Donald Trump and his words are not how I define American. We have come to this country to seek a better life, for some of us, like myself, it was our parents who brought us here to the "land of opportunity." Trump has been able to have his own success in this country, much of it which probably would have been impossible without the Latino community and many of these Mexican immigrants he seems to despise so much. They work in his hotels, they build and renovate his hotels, work on his golf courses, etc. and he reaps the benefits of their hard work, and then publicly, says these horrible things while seeking the presidency of this country. And while he may not be an immigrant, I don't think Mr. Trump has forgotten that the richest man in the world is a Mexican. For a man who prides himself on making good business deals, who wrote the book The Art of the Deal, he sure doesn't know how to deal with an America that has evolved to no longer accept vitriol like that spoken at his campaign announcement. Amazon has recently responded to the racist terror attack in Charleston that sparked a conversation about our nation's history with race and particularly with the Confederate flag by ceasing to sell Confederate flags on their site. Now I call on them to do the same with Donald Trump and cease to sell his many products on the site listed by Donald Trump and his companies. Trump no longer represents a sound business judgement, he represents societal regression and is a symbol for losing business by being held responsible for spreading hate. NBCUniversal and Univision have both recognized this by ending their TV deals with Trump and not showing Miss Universe or The Apprentice. I call on Amazon and its CEO, Jeff Bezos, whose own father immigrated to America as a young man, to also cease business with this man, and stop supporting his hate.
