Impeach Judge Gloria M. Navarro

We the People of the United States petition the U.S. House of Representatives to impeach Judge Gloria M. Navarro of the U.S. District Court for the District of Nevada for committing treason and collaborating in the insurrection against the Constitutional authority of the federal government pursuant to Article I Section 8 Clause 15, Article 3 Section 3 and Article 2 Section 4 of the U.S. Constitution, 18 U.S.C. § 2831 and 18 U.S. § Code 2383. Whereas Judge Navarro, at the direction of the FBI, BLM, and other federal agencies, is unlawfully detaining (Amendment VIII of the Bill of Rights & 18 U.S.C. § 3142), and has been for over nine months, prominent activists within the Citizens for Constitutional Freedom political movement for exercising their First Amendment protected rights—protesting against federal government overreach [the fact it had sold 9,000 acres of public land bordering Bundy Ranch and other people who own grazing rights to the division to a Communist Chinese energy firm represented by Rory Reid (Harry Reid's son), EMM, for $4.5 million, $34.1 million less than its value, and began rounding up the Bundy’s cattle and holding them in inhumane conditions … at least 60 purportedly suffering death or missing]—and, in order to suppress C4CF 's education of the People, they have been charged by the FBI for violating 18 U.S.C. § 371 - Conspiracy to Commit an Offense Against the United States; 18 U.S.C. § 372 - Conspiracy to Impede and Injure a Federal Officer; 18 U.S.C. § lll(a)(l) and (b) - Assault on a Federal Officer; 18 U.S.C. § 115(a)(l)(B) - Threatening a Federal Law Enforcement Officer; 18 U.S.C. § 924(c) - Use and Carry of a Firearm in Relation to a Crime of Violence; 18 U.S.C. § 1503 - Obstruction of the Due Administration of Justice; 18 U.S.C. § 1951 - Interference with Interstate Commerce by Extortion; 18 U.S.C. § 1952 - Interstate Travel in Aid of Extortion; 18 U.S.C. § 2 - Aiding and Abetting. Among the political prisoners are Cliven, Ammon, Ryan and Mel Bundy, Peter Santilli (a journalist), Ryan Payne, Blaine Cooper, Eric Parker and Jerry DeLumus—all of whom provide C4CF with necessary influence. Whereas the discovery comprises substantial evidence proving the innocence of the defendants but is being concealed from the public at the order of Judge Navarro (in violation of Amendment VI of the Bill of Rights and Rule 26 of the Federal Rules of Criminal Procedure). These prisoners have also been subjected to mistreatment by the FBI, U.S. Marshall Service and employees of the correctional facilities. Whereas Judge Navarro is consciously proceeding with falsified charges filed by the FBI against C4CF and refusing to grant motions to dismiss after learning that Sheriff Douglas Gillespie and many other local, state and federal officials ordered the BLM to return the cattle to the Bundy’s and withdraw from the land, and being presented with relevant laws [Article I Section 8 Clause 17 & Article IV Section 3 Clause 2 of the U.S. Constitution, Rule 501 of the Federal Rules of Evidence and Nevada Revised Statute 568.225] were presented to her by the defense. Whereas, after being ordered by Sheriff Gillespie to stand down, Special Agent Dan P. Love of the BLM continued to impede on the rights and jurisdiction of the People of Clark County and all People of Nevada unabated; Committing acts of aggression that should be considered attempts to seriously injure or even kill peaceful protesters, including tazing several individuals and using blunt force (some already challenged by physical disabilities)—an apparent result of its militarization. Sheriff Gillespie stated that "anyone who had been in policing would question their tactics." Whereas Judge Navarro is participating in a cover up of the suppression by the FBI (by way of COINTELPRO tactics) of the right to the free exercise of religion, freedom of speech, freedom of the press, peaceful assembly, and petition the Government for a redress of grievances. One of the main functions of government is to enforce contracts, and in this case not only is the government failing to enforce a contract but it is also the contractor, and have abridged their obligations in addition to preventing the contractee(s) [Cliven Bundy—We the People] from discharging our duties enumerated in Article I Section 8 Clause 15 & 16 of the U.S. Constitution & 10 U.S.C. § 311 and pursuant to Rule 501 of the Federal Rules of Evidence. Whereas Judge Navarro has proven herself unfit to be an impartial Federal Judge; Consistent to the extreme bias expressed by her assistance given to the federal government and its usurpation of power and by covering up the inhumane treatment of political activists who are being unlawfully detained for exercising their rights protected by the First Amendment to enforce the rule of law—to establish justice, insure domestic Tranquility, secure the Blessings of Liberty to ourselves and our Posterity, guarantee a Republican Form of Government, and secure the right to life, liberty and property, as ordained by the Creator in the U.S. Constitution.

Petition to State of Delaware, Delaware State House, Delaware State Senate, S. Quinton Johnson, David Sokola, Brian Bushweller, Robert Marshall, Colin Bonini, Gerald Hocker, Bryan Townsend, Michael Mulrooney, John Mitchell, Charles Potter, Joseph Miro, David Wilson

Support the Food Bank's Bold Future!

Spring has sprung and so has construction at the Food Bank of Delaware's future home at 222 Lake Drive in Newark. We are proud of the time spent on value engineering to ensure that we have reduced costs as much as possible and designed a facility that will meet our needs well into the future. Our team is working hard to raise the money needed to retrofit the facility. To date we have raised $4.3 million and need an additional $6 million. We are prepared to take out a bank loan, but we prefer to purchase bags full of food for kids participating in our Backpack Program than to pay interest on a loan for construction costs.  The sale of our current facility at 14 Garfield Way will bring in approximately $2 million, and we are working hard to secure money from the State of Delaware. In December 2017, we sent Governor Carney a letter requesting a one-time $1 million investment in this vital project.  Our intention is to ensure that this new facility serves as a continuation of our view that the issue of food security is an essential part of the solution on the issues of health and wellness, poverty, children's school performance, education and criminal justice reform.  Food security should always be viewed as an important aspect of solving the problems identified, not just as a fleeting thought after they have been discussed. In order to successfully secure this one time investment, we are asking for your help.  Please sign our petition to the members of the Delaware State House, Delaware State Senate, and specifically those on the Capital Improvements (Bond) committee, and request that they support the Food Bank of Delaware's important $1 million ask. The members of the Capital Improvements Committee are: Chair: Quinton JohnsonCo-Chair: David P. Sokola Senators: Brian J. BushwellerRobert MarshallColin BoniniGerald W. HockerBryan Townsend Representatives: Michael MulrooneyJohn L. MitchellCharles PotterJoseph E. MiroDavid L. Wilson Support of this investment will ensure that the neediest of Delaware's citizens, those that depend on us daily for our services, will not be forgotten and that we will be there to serve them long into the future.   Committed to Ending Hunger, Julie Miro Wenger -  Board Chairwoman                               Patricia Beebe - President & CEO

Petition to H-E-B, Charles Butt, SCOTT MCCLELLAN

Let's get H-E-B to open a store in Sherman!

SOUTH SHERMAN, TX is a food desert. A Food Desert is an urban area in which it is difficult to buy affordable or good-quality fresh food. We need a grocery store that offers quality products and services, and has a long legacy of community involvement.  H-E-B fits that bill, plus, it's a Texas-based grocery chain!  Let's get H-E-B Inc. to open a store in Sherman, Texas! Sherman currently has five food markets that offer a variety of fresh, affordable, and healthy food options.  However, NONE of those stores are located near those that live on the Southern side of town.  Many residents in South Sherman lack transportation to shop at the food markets currently operating in Sherman.  So, they must buy whatever groceries they can at the nearest convenience store or Dollar store.  Usually, these people end up getting over-charged for cheap, nutrition-less, processed food.  To make matters worse, public transportation is extremely limited in Sherman.  H-E-B Grocery is the largest grocery store chain in Texas but there isn't one even remotely close to Sherman.  The official slogan for HEB is "Here Everything's Better". At HEB they have their own brand of milk, dairy products and meat. They have an excellent quality and selection of organic products. They also have a large non-food selection of cookware and housewares. H-E-B cares about their customers. You can ask anyone that lives in a city that has an H-E-B and they will tell you that it is the only grocery store they shop at. Just look at the media headlines from Hurricane Harvey, and all the great relief effort H-E-B put in.  Even Austin College students could benefit from an H-E-B on the south side of town.  If you want an H-E-B in Sherman, and you care about those that are less fortunate, sign and share this petition now. Let's show H-E-B they have fans in South Sherman!   For more information, visit http://www.kten.com/story/37509068/in-search-of-a-solution-for-shermans-food-desert
