Petition to Department of Justice, John Kelly, President Donald Trump, V.P. Mike Pence

Stop Deep State Government Misinformation

https://www.congress.gov/bill/112th-congress/house-bill/5736/text APPROVED 2012 Under President Obama, A law was changed with the new Smith-Mundt Modernization Act of 2012, an act sponsored by Rep. Mac Thornberry (R- Texas) and Rep. Adam Smith (D- Wash.). The reform was quietly inserted into the 2013 National Defense Authorization Act (NDAA), and effectively nullifies the original 1948 act.In 2013, the NDAA created an act called Countering foreign propaganda and disinformation act which removed the ban in place since 1948, (The Smith-Mundt act 1948) and as well as the (Foreign Relations Authorization Act) FRA act of 1987.In 2016, the NDAA reinforced it by including it In It's 2017 budget to fund it. The original law prohibited U.S. organizations from using state resources, including the intelligence community, to influence public opinion of United States citizens. President Obama’s reform to the Smith-Mundt Act allows the American public to be one of its targeted audience of U.S. government-funded information campaigns.The Smith-Mundt Act of 1948 was established as a prohibition on domestic dissemination of materials intended for foreign audiences by the State Department, also known as propaganda. It was established as a barrier between government agencies and the media, and for 65 years the act stood unchallenged, given the role propaganda is generally reserved for in empowering dictatorial governments.The purpose of the repeal, to disseminate foreign policy related information. This newfound power could be used to influence our democratic election or used to produce false information by any party in power.We must demand that the Smith-Mundt Act of 1948 & FRA act of 1987, a fail safe measure, are reinstated to keep the government in check and prevent misinformation to be used to mislead  the American public.

Petition to Living Word Lutheran High School

Keep the old chairs at LW and allow students to take backpacks to class again

Living Word has replaced the old chairs with uncomfortable plastic stools that don't stay in one position. A new rule also require students to put their phones in pouches before class. Backpacks are also no longer allowed to be carried for class to class which makes organization much more difficult. The students who sign this petition respectively disagree with these decisions and would like a change. Punishment for those sleeping in class and using cell phones without authorization should be given, without punishing the rest of the students. For example, a letter should be sent home and require a parents signature. If the student fails to bring the letter back in whatever time he/she feels fit, they will receive a detention. The $20 rule is too much and feels wrong and over the top for some teachers. This is why a punishment is needed that students fear and teachers aren't afraid to enforce. ***UPDATE*** As for a solution for the stools, it is unreasonable to expect immediate change. We just would like to ask that the stools will eventually be replaced with chairs like the previous ones. In  some classrooms there aren't enough stools for ever desk, so some are filled with regular chairs. This could cause drama in a lot of classes because students will want to fight over the chairs. This makes it more important to replace the stools quickly.  The fire hazard argument can be an issue, but there are certain measures students can take to make the hallways and classrooms more safe in the case of a fire. during lunch and chapel students should be required to leave their backpacks in/by their lockers to clear the hallway. Student should also be aware of backpacks that may be in the way and lean them against their desks or put them underneath. Share this petition with fellow current LW students and Alumni We have passed the goal of 100 supporters and we are working on a response.

Spread the wealth by moving federal departments around the country and out of DC!

Americans need jobs, yet they send money to Washington DC for the disproportionate benefit of the DC metropolitan area, and not the rest of the country.  Using 2010 Census data, the DC metro area, incorporating counties in VA and MD, have 11 of the top 25 wealthiest counties in the country.  Here are the actual rankings: 1, 2, 3, 5, 6, 11, 12, 15, 18, 19, 21 There was a time in this country's history where governance needed to be concentrated in one area, but as the government grew in size and scope and technological advancements were made (e.g. the Internet, Video Conferencing, etc.), the need to keep national tax dollars funding such a concentrated area of the country no longer exists.  At present, 21% of all civilian federal employees live in an area that represents less than 1% of the country, and these are some of the highest paying positions in the government. I hereby request that all federal departments which are non-strategic to the constitutional role of the federal government be moved from the Washington, DC area and relocated to other states so as to, by way of example, - more evenly distribute federal wages to underrepresented states. - move the management and operations of federal services closer to those they most serve. (e.g. place the Bureau of Indian Affairs in South Dakota and the Bureau of Land Management in Utah.) By doing so, the short term effect will be the creation of jobs in areas of the country which are in desperate need of them, but the long term effect will be the removal of the high concentration of tax payer funded wealth and return more of those dollars to the states which provide them instead of the two which disproportionately benefit from other tax payers. Please support me in my effort to more equitably benefit under-represented areas and to spread the wealth to the other 99% of the country.

Petition to Pres. Trump

Pres. Trump, Please, Give us Back Our IDs & Gov't Benefits!

I. I, the author of this petition, have been doing research about the Illegals' Mafia for approximately 16 years, now.  This is what my research shows (among other facts): the illegals’ mafia has government-employees within our government system.  Specifically, this mafia has employees in (1) the Department of Social Services,                                                                      (2) the Social Security Administration Offices, and                                                     (3) the Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services.  II. The aforementioned Government Agencies have Illegals’ Mafia Members working for them.  These mafia-members have access to our citizens’ social security numbers, personally-identifiable information, and government-benefits.  These are sold to illegals, and Illegals’ Mafia Members, so they get the citizens’ government-benefits [including their state-pensions] by impersonating the citizens.   If Pres. Trump resolves the above matter, five citizens' lives will be saved:  the Whitfield sisters -- Lorenzetta & Lillian Whitfield, Ms. Elvira Williams, Ms. Luisa Oyarzun, and Prof. Solange Martinez.   Lillian is currently on dialysis (being DENIED Medical Care and the Donor Program).  Elvira and Luisa (currently DYING OF CANCER) are also DENIED medical care.  Lorenzetta and  Prof. Martinez (whose health deteriorate) are in the same situation. And, many citizens' intellectual property (along with the Whitfield Sisters') have been stolen and sold to Illegals and Illegals' Mafia Members.  Prof. Martinez' credentials and identity have also been stolen and sold!
