Petition to Democratic National Committee

Add THERESA WRIGHT on Democratic Ballot for the 2020 Elections

Time after time the people elected Presidents that they feel would change the system. Many have failed due to lack of support from Congress. We need to reevaluate the systems that are in place designed to help the fellow American and make it better. I think it's TIME FOR GENERATION X to stand up and speak up! I know it is extremely difficult to run the free world with all of the opposing factors that you have to face. You must pull through and present changes for the better despite other opinions. I am 38 years old wife and mother with a background in Accounting and Finance; I currently hold my Degree in Business, Majoring in Accounting Management. I am also the President of C3 Professionals & Associates, Inc. where I provide Business Support, Bookkeeping and Tax Preparation Service to Individuals and Businesses. I have worked in Administration and Management for 20 years. I must say, my background is not in politics, but with my first-hand experience dealing with tax regulations, profitable businesses, low income families, businesses that are struggling to keep afloat, Family businesses, Social Security Recipients, millennials and other countless demographics; I not only see what they go through, I am the one who they can count on to make it in this country. I believe the government needs a new face to represent them. There should be someone in office who can relate to all aspects of the economy; someone subject to a relative perspective in the world. THESE ARE  SOME OF THE ISSUES I WILL FOCUS ON. I would like to run for President in the 2020 elections. However, I need your help. The Democratic National Committee need to see that I have support. 1 million signatures would show them. I believe in the greater good for the people!  I am a fighter with a strong work ethic. Help me win this fight for fair gain. PLEASE SIGN MY PETITION TODAY TO GET ME ON THE DEMOCRATIC BALLOT. #VOTEWRIGHT2020

Petition to Hillary Clinton, Donald Trump

Commit to act for paid family leave for all in your first 100 days

Under ordinary circumstances, two mothers as different as we are would never have met. One of us is from Oklahoma and is a registered Republican. The other is an unmarried liberal who lives in Brooklyn. But tragedy has a way of bringing people together. Last year, we both lost our babies, infant sons who died at daycare, after we’d left them in childcare to return to work. Neither of us wanted to leave our babies when we did, at mere weeks old, not yet. But neither of us had the luxury of choice. Our respective employers would not grant us any more time for parental leave, and we couldn’t afford to quit our jobs. So, reluctantly, on an April morning in Oklahoma, baby Shepard was left at daycare. A childcare worker swaddled him for a nap, placed him in a car seat, and didn’t check on him. He slipped down and suffocated, still too little to lift up his own head. Just as reluctantly, in July, baby Karl was dropped off for his first day at daycare near his mother’s Manhattan office. When she came back to feed him at noon, Karl’s lips were blue and a childcare worker was performing CPR. A medical examiner could not determine why this healthy baby died. 1 in 4 American moms have no choice but to return to work just two weeks after the birth of a child.  87 percent of parents have no access to paid leave through their employers. No parent should have to choose between leaving their baby too soon and making ends meet. Given that 73% of Republicans, 87% of independents and 96% of Democrats agree it is important for Congress and the president to consider a family leave insurance system, we are jointly calling on the candidates for president, Republican and Democrat, to publicly commit that, if elected, they will take action for national paid family leave policy in their first 100 days in office. Most babies don’t die in day care, of course. But, as it turns out, our instinct that Karl and Shepard would be safer if we could have stayed with them a little longer was not wrong. An important study released last week found that for each additional month that a woman has paid parental leave, infant mortality goes down 13 percent. America has the highest infant mortality rate of any industrialized nation in the world. Paid leave, in countries that have implemented it, has dramatically lowered infant death rates. But beyond this, parental leave is good for our children. When Norway began offering paid parental leave, there were dramatic long-range effects: children had lower high school dropout rates, higher rates of college attendance, and higher incomes at age 30. American babies whose mothers don’t have maternity leave are less likely to be taken to the doctor, and less likely to be breastfed. Toddlers of parents without access to paid leave have more behavioral problems, and score lower on cognitive tests. Every American baby would be safer, healthier, and have a better start in life if given time with their mother or father during the first months of life. If our political leaders claim to be pro-family, they need to put families first by supporting paid family leave. In the richest country in the world, we should not have sobbing mothers leaving their premature babies in the NICU because they have to return to their jobs. We do not need to tear babies from their mothers’ arms before they can even hold up their own necks. Parental leave is a necessity, not a perk. Join us, a mom from Oklahoma and a mom from Brooklyn, in calling upon the presidential candidates of both parties to publicly commit that, if elected, they will take action for paid family leave policy in their first 100 days in office. Through our great loss, we are now united to fight for change. We charge our leaders, both Republican and Democrat, to enact laws that protect the right of every American baby to have the loving care of a parent during the fragile first months of their life.

Petition to President Barack Obama

Call for a Presidential Election Review and Redo

DEAR FRIENDS - TODAY (1/5) I AM MAILING THIS PETITION TO PRESIDENT OBAMA. I WILL LET YOU KNOW WHAT IS RESPONSE IS! President Obama, If it is within your power, we respectfully call on you to enact a Presidential Directive/Executive Directive to protect our Constitution, our National Security and our Nations welfare from the hostile influence and subversion of a hostile foreign government by vacating the tainted results of the November 8th, 2016 election. Let what special adjudicating trustees must be appointed to supervise a new Special Presidential Election be so appointed, that the People may be satisfied that their Constitutional right to a fair vote is upheld and they are fully enfranchised.   GROUNDS: 1. National SecurityBased on the accounts of the CIA, the FBI and over 17 US intelligence agencies, the Russian Government effectively used cyber-attacks to bias the American election against Hillary Clinton in a manner that amounts to a de facto political coup on American soil. This grave and unprecedented threat to our national security and the health of our Nation’s self-determination must be accounted for. The People will not accept or tolerate an election result manipulated and corrupted by Russian espionage, for a purpose hostile to the welfare of our Nation. 2. Preserving and Protecting the ConstitutionAdditionally, we call on you to uphold your Presidential Oath to "preserve, protect and defend the Constitution of the United States" by preventing our Nation from being usurped by a president and an administration who is openly hostile to our Constitution and who will not abide by its strictures and tenets, but will establish a Tyranny of lawlessness. An American President must uphold the constitution. Donald Trump's policies and goals to resist freedom of speech and change libel laws, authorize torture and waterboarding, restrict a woman's right to abortion, ban the entry of people based on their religion or nationality and target them with surveillance program, are unconstitutional and unlawful, violating the First, Fourth, Fifth, Eighth and Fourteenth Amendments, as well as other statues and international treaties. His refusal to uphold our Constitution nullifies his ability to take office. Trump also egregiously violates the Emoluments Clause and the Logan Act:"foreign interference in the American political system was among the gravest dangers feared by the Founders of our nation and the framers of our Constitution. The United States was a new government, and one that was vulnerable to manipulation by the great and wealthy world powers (which then, as now, included Russia). One common tactic that foreign sovereigns, and their agents, used to influence our officials was to give them gifts, money, and other things of value. In response to this practice, and the self-evident threat it represents, the framers included in the Constitution the Emoluments Clause of Article I, Section 9. It prohibits any “Person holding any Office of Profit or Trust under [the United States]” from accepting “any present, Emolument, Office, or Title, of any kind whatever, from any King, Prince, or foreign State.” Only explicit congressional consent validates such exchanges. "...But one violation, of constitutional magnitude, will run from the instant that Mr. Trump swears he will “faithfully execute the Office of President of the United States, and will to the best of my ability, preserve, protect and defend the Constitution of the United States.” While holding office, Mr. Trump will receive—by virtue of his continued interest in the Trump Organization and his stake in hundreds of other entities—a steady stream of monetary and other benefits from foreign powers and their agents."- Norman L. Eisen The Logan Act (enacted January 30, 1799) is a United States federal law that forbids unauthorized citizens from negotiating with foreign governments having a dispute with the U.S. It was intended to prevent the undermining of the government's position. The Act was last amended in 1994, and violation of the Logan Act is a felony. No one who commits a felony can become President of the United States. The People also express this additional objection: 3. Election EngineeringDuring the early voting period over 42,000,000 Americans were forced to cast ballots while impeded in their ability to vote fairly and impartially: Two weeks before Election Day FBI Director James Comey again released the information that Secretary Clinton was under review for ‘criminal’ activity in a manner that forcefully placed doubt and indecision in the American voters mind. This prejudice rendered a fair and impartial election process impossible, and tangibly altered the natural outcome of the election. By depressing the Democratic voter turnout, Director Comey also affected the outcome of the Senate and House elections. The People are outraged. We should not and cannot not tolerate a government agency to violate Federal regulations and abuse its power in order to influence the outcome of an American election: “Federal employees may not use their official authority or influence to interfere with or affect the result of an election” - The Hatch Act When the People are repeatedly subjected to powerful Federal agencies interfering in their ability to have clear information and make judgments on vital matters of State, and when this interference leads to an outcome that alters the results of a presidential election, can we not fairly conclude that safeguards and laws instituted to protect the American people from a tainted election were transgressed? And that through these transgressions our Constitutional right to a fair, unimpeded vote was obstructed, corrupting the November 8th election result? A corrupted election threatens our democracy, our national security, and our welfare as a Sovereign Nation. Our Nation cannot move forward in peace and unity until this matter is settled. It is our belief that no presidential transition should occur until this matter is justly resolved. website:  http://www.specialpresidentialelection.com/ BACKGROUND During the Presidential Election we the American People were subject to the violation of sacrosanct regulations and safeguards established to protect our Constitutional right to a fair and unimpeded vote. GROUNDS 1. During the early voting period over 42,000,000 Americans were forced to cast ballots while impeded in their ability to vote fairly and impartially because FBI Director James Comey released the information that Secretary Clinton was under review for ‘criminal’ activity in a manner that forcefully placed doubt and indecision in the American voters mind. In essence, Director Comey abused the power of the Federal Government and the most carefully adhered to protocols and regulations of the Department of Justice by acting to place Secretary Clinton on public ‘trial’ while effectively prejudicing the ‘jury’ (the public) against her. His prejudicial statement was in violation of the Federal safeguards in place to prevent such violations and the resulting corruption of democracy: “Federal employees may not use their official authority or influence to interfere with or affect the result of an election” - The Hatch Act This breach of Federal policy caused over a third of all ballots to be cast while voters labored under the false suspicion of criminal activity on the part of Secretary Clinton, rendering a fair and impartial election process impossible, and tangibly altering the natural outcome of the election. By depressing the Democratic voter turnout, Director Comey also affected the outcome of the Senate and House elections. • Additionally, because the FBI “cleared” Secretary Clinton of wrongdoing in the eleventh hour only after more than a full third of the election’s votes had been cast under prejudicial misapprehension; • And because not all the remaining voters could be made aware of this development in the one short day before Election Day; • And as Trump campaign ads misled the public through disinformation by placing advertisements on television stating that Secretary Clinton remained under “criminal” investigation through election day, Voters were further denied their Constitutional right to an untainted election process. 2. Most disturbingly, it has been made widely known that the Trump campaign had been granted privileged information and foreknowledge regarding the FBI’s actions toward Secretary Clinton, reasonably indicating collusion. The People shall not tolerate a Federal Agency breaking the Public Trust for the purpose or to the effect of engineering a politically motivated outcome. When the People are subjected to powerful Federal agencies interfering in their ability to have clear information and make judgments on vital matters of State, and when this interference leads to an outcome that alters the results of a presidential election, can we not fairly conclude that safeguards and laws instituted to protect the American people from a tainted election were transgressed? And that through these transgressions our Constitutional right to a fair, unimpeded vote was obstructed, corrupting the November 8th election result? 3. Based on the account of the CIA and over 17 US intelligence agencies, the Russian Government effectively used cyber-attacks to bias the American election against Hillary Clinton in a manner that amounts to a de facto political coup on American soil. This grave and unprecedented threat to our national security and the health of our Nation’s self-determination must be accounted for. The People will not accept or tolerate an election manipulated and corrupted by Russian espionage. 4. Additionally, An American President must uphold the constitution. Donald Trump's policies and goals to resist freedom of speech and change libel laws, authorize torture and waterboarding, restrict a woman's right to abortion, ban the entry of people based on their religion or nationality and target them with surveillance program, are unconstitutional and unlawful, violating the First, Fourth, Fifth, Eighth and Fourteenth Amendments, as well as other statues and international treaties. This nullifies his ability to take office.  Trump also egregiously violates the  Emoluments Clause: "foreign interference in the American political system was among the gravest dangers feared by the Founders of our nation and the framers of our Constitution. The United States was a new government, and one that was vulnerable to manipulation by the great and wealthy world powers (which then, as now, included Russia).

Eisen 5. Since Trump became the president elect, he has been repeatedly guilty of violating The Logan Act: The Logan Act (enacted January 30, 1799) is a United States federal law that forbids unauthorized citizens from negotiating with foreign governments having a dispute with the U.S. It was intended to prevent the undermining of the government's position. The Act was last amended in 1994, and violation of the Logan Act is a felony. No one who commits a felony can become president. REMEDY The People are outraged. We will not tolerate our Constitutional right to a fair and uncorrupted election to be usurped or abridged. We call for the nullification of this tainted election and that what special adjudicating trustees must be appointed to supervise a Special Presidential Election so be appointed, that the People may be satisfied that their Constitutional right to a fair vote is upheld and they are enfranchised. While this call for a Special Presidential Election is unprecedented, the offenses against our sacred democratic voting process during this election have been unprecedented and unsupportable, and demand a commensurate response and remedy. We assert that no presidential transition should occur until this matter is justly resolved.
