Petition to Donald Trump
Continue the 60-year tradition of having Charles Brotman as the Inaugural Announcer.
89-year-old Charles Brotman has been the voice of every presidential inaugural parade since Dwight D. Eisenhower was inaugurated for his second term in 1957.He has been known as "the eyes and the ears of the president" for 11 presidents, and 16 inaugural parades, and was once known as the voice of the Washington Senators baseball team, and various other Washington D.C. sports teams. After his wife's recent death, Charles saw the inauguration as a "welcome" distraction from his grief, and "would have rather worried about the president and the president's parade than be unhappy with what has just recently happened". He has taken pride in this volunteer job for 60 years, and does a great job at it.But THIS year, just weeks after Mr. Brotman's wife's death, President-elect Donald Trump's team has decided to end Brotman's tenure for 2017, and, instead, replace him with Steve Ray, a freelance radio announcer, and Trump supporter. To add insult to injury, this devastating termination of 60 years of tradition was communicated to Mr. Brotman via email. When he read this email, he was "heartbroken" and "destroyed". In his words, "I felt like Muhammad Ali had hit me in the stomach."While the country is solidly divided on our support for Donald Trump, it seems very clear that those who voted for him did so because they wanted to shake up the system, and change things for the better... but I am pretty sure that this is not the kind of change those who voted for Donald Trump were looking for.When things are broken, sometimes it is necessary to shake things up and make drastic changes to improve them... but changing things that are going well just for the sake of change is counterproductive. This kind gentleman has taken pride in serving our country in this volunteer role for the past 60 years, and has done a great job doing it.DONALD J. TRUMP, we respectfully ask you to please honor this man's long-time service to our country, and this great American custom, and re-instate Charles Brotman to his rightful place as the announcer for the presidential inaugural parade. I'm sure there are other ways to thank Steven Ray for his support, and he will understand.NY Daily News ArticleCNN Article and Interview Video MSNBC Coverage with Interview

Don’t make Americans suffer. Keep the pre-existing condition clause for health insurance
In 2017, the future of healthcare in America will be decided by President Trump and Congress. I want to be sure that people like me, those with a chronic illness, have a voice in the path forward. My name is Linda, and I’m a married mother of two children. My husband is a hard-working, self-employed man who does his best to provide for all of us. Because he’s self-employed and I have a pre-existing health condition, it was virtually impossible to find health insurance coverage before Obamacare came along. Before Obamacare, health insurance companies would reject us outright, or would direct us to a high-risk insurance pool with annual or lifetime caps on coverage due to my pre-existing condition. These high-risk insurance pools were extremely expensive and often provided limited coverage -- which doesn’t guarantee critical care treatment needs for people with chronic health conditions. This was devastating to the chronic care community. Since Trump and the Republicans in Congress announced their plan to repeal and replace Obamacare, I have yet to see any plan that ensures people like me will be able to transition into similar care with no coverage gap, or even retain access to affordable, critical ongoing chronic care. If the pre-existing condition clause goes away with an Obamacare repeal, millions of Americans will be impacted. Our emergency rooms will be overrun with individuals who can no longer get regular care for their chronic conditions, and health care costs will spiral out of control once again. I also run a ministry for women with chronic health conditions and hear these same fears from the women I help counsel since the President-elect announced his intention to repeal Obamacare. No one in our great country should ever know the fear and frustration of fighting for every scrap of insurance coverage when you have a chronic, lifelong disease. Please sign this petition today and help make sure that Americans with pre-existing health conditions don’t get left behind. Tell Congress and our new President to protect those with pre-existing conditions.
Petition to Donald Trump
Tell Trump To #ActOnClimate
President-elect Trump has called climate change a Chinese hoax, vowed to dismantle America's climate and clean energy policies, and appointed climate deniers with ties to the fossil fuel industry to his transition team and Cabinet. There is too much at stake for us to stay silent. Human-caused climate change threatens America’s economy, national security, and public health and safety. That's why we and over 800 of our colleagues, all of whom work on climate, energy, or Earth science, have written an open letter (read here) urging Donald Trump to take 6 key steps to address climate change: 1) Make America a clean energy leader.2) Reduce carbon pollution and America's dependence on fossil fuels.3) Enhance America's climate preparedness and resilience.4) Publicly acknowledge that climate change is a real, human-caused, and urgent threat.5) Protect scientific integrity in policymaking.6) Uphold America's commitment to the Paris Climate Agreement. Please join us in urging President-elect Trump to #ActOnClimate by signing this petition. Thank you, Dr. Suzanne P.

Suspend or Cancel Trump's Twitter Account
To the Chief Officers at Twitter: We the undersigned believe that presidential candidate and now president-elect 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 and others for violating Twitter rules, and ask that D.J. Trump not be allowed to violate those same rules with impunity. We also understand that tweeting is not a First Amendment right, as discussed in Salon, but is speech conducted on a privately-run online platform governed by community standards. As of Dec. 16 there are about 55,000 signatures on a similar petition organized by people protesting at Twitter HQ, and I urge any signing here to sign there as well. All of us recognize that Trump has in effect weaponized Twitter unfairly. 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). D.J. 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, shows again how his tweets intentionally or not influence stock prices. 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 recent 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. These are just a few examples of violations that form a clear pattern, clear enough so that his Twitter abuse of nearly 300 people has been graphically summarized in the New York Times. And as you are doubtless aware, Vanity Fair has also argued for banning Trump from Twitter. Not included in the above is D. J. Trump's use of Twitter to avoid the press, whose duty it is to critically report to the public what the President-Elect or presidential candidate does or means to do. Ultimately it is up to the officers of Twitter whether Trump is allowed to continue abusing people, institutions and corporations with your powerful technology. We hope you make the right decision, and soon. Thank you for your attention.

Petition to Paul Ryan, Republican National Committee, Donald Trump, Mike Pence
Steve Bannon's racist, anti-semitic, misogynistic views don't belong in the White House
President-elect Donald Trump has just appointed his campaign CEO and chairman of Breitbart News, Stephen Bannon, as chief White House strategist and senior counselor. Trump’s team said the position will be equal to the Chief of Staff -- making Steve Bannon one of the most powerful and influential people in the world. The appointment has drawn outrage from all sides of the political spectrum. Under Bannon’s leadership, Breitbart News has become the online destination for white nationalism, anti semitism, xenophobia, sexism, the spreading of lies and conspiracy theories, and hateful rhetoric. Steve Bannon himself has been accused of horrible behavior. He referred to feminists as “a bunch of dykes” and reportedly didn’t want his children to go to school with “a bunch of jews.” Former employee Ben Shapiro left Breitbart News because he said Bannon was a “vindictive, nasty figure.” Bannon’s abuse has even turned physical. In 1996, he was arrested for domestic violence. His ex-wife feared for their children, and reported Bannon threatened her and the kids if she appeared in court against him. She believed him and didn’t want to put her children in more danger. Bannon’s ex wife didn’t appear and the charges were dropped. President-elect Trump can do better. Our country has a deep well of talent to help him lead our country. There is no reason to select a figure like Steve Bannon. Bannon's vitriol and divisiveness have no place in the White House. Please sign if you agree that this is NOT the person who should have the ear of the president. For questions, concerns, or media/ press inquiries please contact Sharika Soal at LadysoalPR@gmail.com or send a Tweet to @LadyThriller69 [Sidenote: 69 stands for the cancer zodiac sign.] Thank you.

Petition to Leonard Lance
Town Hall Meeting with Congressman Leonard Lance in 7th District in New Jersey
We, constituents of New Jersey’s 7th Congressional District, are petitioning our representative, Congressman Leonard Lance, to hold a public Town Hall meeting as soon as possible. The election of Donald Trump, along with his agenda, has caused concern and even alarm among many of us in the 7th Congressional District. Representative Lance will be voting on issues of deep concern to citizens in the 7th District, including the fate of the Affordable Care Act, funding of women's health, climate change issues, and privatization of Medicare. As a new member of the House Ethics Committee, Rep. Leonard Lance also will play a pivotal role in whether members of Congress uphold standards of transparency and avoid conflicts of interest and corruption. In-person, town hall meetings are part of a functioning, representative democracy. As constituents of Congressman Lance, we would like to share our concerns, ask questions and learn about our representative's priorities and positions. The last Town Hall meeting Congressman Lance held with constituents was several months ago, and his staffers say he has no current plans to hold one. #RepLanceMeetUs
Petition to US Vice President Biden
IMPEACH DONALD TRUMP
FBI Releases Shocking Statement-Russia Helped Trump Win Two U.S. intelligence officials confirmed to NBC that FBI Director James Comey and National intelligence James Clapper concur with the CIA"s view of Russian involvement in the election. They also confirmed the veracity of the post's exerts from Brennan's message. Trump is now the president elect, has repeatedly dismissed the accusations that the Kremlin illegally inserted itself into the U.S electoral process. Unlike his promised crimes yet to come, the illegal acts in Trump’s high pressure wealth seminars have already occurred. Indeed, a federal judge appointed under Article III of the U.S. Constitution has already determined that Trump’s alleged actions, if true, constitute fraud and racketeering,” Congress is breaking the law. Congress is destroying our Constitution If they do nothing about this! It is our right as US citizens!!!
