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 Mayor John Suthers, Colorado Springs City Council, Colorado Springs Parks Board

No to buses in North Cheyenne Cañon Park. No to paving paradise for parking lots.

On January 25th, 2018, the Parks Department controlled by Mayor John Suthers presented 4 alternatives for busing and parking lots in historic North Cheyenne Cañon Park including moving the creek which we believe is illegal (presumably so the Broadmoor can have a parking area for 7 Falls in one corner of the area?) as well as just giving the Broadmoor Mesa Avenue between 7 Falls and Evans for their buses and creating a turn around off that road into the current center island shutting down the South Cheyenne Cañon loop to only Broadmoor buses.  Options also call for tearing down the pavilion above Starsmore used for weddings and family events and turning that into a bus unloading and loading zone as well as reducing the pull offs for trailheads from 42 to 12 and requiring riding buses to access park or possibly purchase paid parking passes as well as paving Gold Camp road.  Wait, we thought the parks department was broke and could not afford to deal with a non-existent trash problem in Strawberry Fields?  The choices were dizzying, at best.  Most importantly, there was the fundamental flaw in this process.  They start with the premise that the park is increasing at 8% per year which they said they got from sign in sheets.  The reality is that the visitor counting done at, for example, Helen Hunt Falls is done with clickers.  One volunteer inside the visitor center and one volunteer outside the center clicks people, to the best of their ability, as they walk by.  No one is asked how they arrived (i.e. by foot, bike or car).  And, for sure, there are errors and flaws in that system.  So, at the very least, legitimate traffic studies conducted throughout the year should be completed to determine what the traffic actually is which is, other than major holiday weekends, usually not an issue.  Regarding parking, there are options beyond overcrowding buses which pollute the environment and pose dangers to bikers, hikers and wildlife, which include accessing existing parking areas with no additional expenses nor the need to destroying parkland.  Most importantly, full parking lots mean full trails.  The premise that we should seek to continually meet whatever increases in visitors which, again, needs to be better quantified, is false and poor stewardship of our public lands.  We should not seek to further trample our already crowded trails and risk the lives of wildlife and hikers/bikers by implementing a bus system.  Perhaps endow rangers with the authority to issue parking tickets to curb illegal parking on those peak holidays where the park gets busy.  Otherwise, leave it alone. Every proposal included shuttle buses.  These buses will cost money to operate.  Therefore, where we are headed is paid bus rides to access trails in North Cheyenne Cañon and, it appears, just giving the Broadmoor a road.  This creates a toll, a barrier, to accessing our most precious public lands and also will pose hazards for the wildlife and environment.  Please join us in telling Mayor Suthers and City Council that this is not acceptable.  No to buses in North Cheyenne Cañon and no to paving paradise to put up parking lots.  No to excluding a low socio-economic class of the public from recreating and enjoying THEIR public lands due to tolls.  Protect our public lands from commercialization and being turned into theme parks.  Keep NCC natural and freely accessible to all.

Save Stoneleigh from Condemnation

The Lower Merion School District has indicated it may use eminent domain to take Stoneleigh: a natural garden to build a new school and/or playing fields. Perhaps best known for the iconic hare sculpture located near the intersection of Spring Mill and County Line Roads in Villanova, Stoneleigh was the beloved home of the Haas family. Following the deaths of John and Chara Haas—whose ashes are scattered on the property—in an extraordinary act of generosity the estate of John Haas donated all of Stoneleigh to Natural Lands in 2016. The donation had a singular purpose: to open Stoneleigh up to the general public, so that everyone could enjoy this natural treasure free of charge.  The Lower Merion School District has previously stated its interest in condemning a 6.9-acre portion of Stoneleigh: a natural garden, so that it can build new ball fields. On April 18, the district sent a letter to Natural Lands stating that it wants to inspect the rest of the 42-acre Stoneleigh garden “in anticipation of a potential condemnation of all or part of the property.”  Natural Lands has told the District that we will fight, vigorously, any attempt at a taking.  Unfortunately, saying “no” to the School District will not be enough. We need your help to send a clear message to the School District: should the Lower Merion School District take Stoneleigh, it would rob the residents of Lower Merion and the broader region of a one-of-a-kind community treasure. Please sign this petition: Tell the Lower Merion School Board and Superintendent Robert Copeland that Stoneleigh must remain preserved so that its beauty is available for all to enjoy forever, and that they should look elsewhere for a location for a school and playing fields.
