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.

HELP SAVE OUR PRECIOUS PUBLIC LANDS!

The State of New Jersey Division of Fish and Wildlife wants to sell out the Sparta Mountain Wildlife Management Area to commercial loggers, hunters and other private interests. THEY MUST BE STOPPED. Under the guise of a “forest stewardship plan,” "oak regeneration plan" and other "management/treatment plans",State bureaucrats are trying to raise money by permitting clear cutting, herbicidal and fire use and the degradation of our water supply and other natural resources in our public open spaces.  Sparta Mountain, like many other public open spaces, is home to many rare and endangered plant and animal species. This bogus plan would cause irreparable damage to the complex wetland systems and C1 trout streams assigned the highest classification in the State.   The Highlands region, which includes the Sparta Mountains, also provides the drinking water to over 70% of ALL NJ residents. This plan sells out our New Jersey’s public lands and parks which belong to all of us and are held in the public trust. They must not be sold to the highest bidder. Don’t let State bureaucrats destroy our forests, endanger our water supply and decrease our property values.  Help stop commercial logging on Sparta Mountain before it’s too late!    ACTION PETITION FOR: We, the undersigned, as concerned citizens, urge our elected officials (local, state, and federal) to act now to stop the DEVASTATION of our cherished Sparta Mountain Wildlife Management Area. We call for them to prohibit commercial clear cutting, herbicidal and fire use and the degradation of our water supply and other natural resources in our public open spaces by requiring the NJ Division of Fish and Wildlife to ABANDON the proposed 10-year Forest Stewardship Plan for SMWMA and withdraw bills S234 and A3389 from consideration (which would transfer the NJ State Forestry Services to the Department of Agriculture).  NJ's public forests ARE NOT agriculture crops to be "harvested from".  On 9/29/18 We ask for a permanent  CEASE-AND-DESIST of all logging activities on Sparta Mountain (a High Conservation Value Forest with over 120+ Rare, Threatened/Endangered and Special Concern Species), so that additional ecological harm (2 vernal pools have already been clear cut with over 50% of the intact forested canopy removed- to the demise of the species that called that home) is not done and we do not destroy the drinking water supply to over 70% of the state. Thank you!

Petition to Senators Crapo and Risch, Gov Butch Otter

Not One Acre in Any County!!

The Upper Lochsa Land Exchange (ULX) was formally proposed in 2008. It was the largest land exchange ever involving the Forest Service and would trade well-loved and used FS lands for the less accessible checkerboard private lands owned by Western Pacific Timber (WPT) in the upper Lochsa. It threatened small town watersheds, trout streams, access to favored hunting and fishing sites and other recreational opportunities.In 2016, after years of staunch public opposition, Idaho Sen. James Risch admitted there was no public support for the ULX and declined to pursue legislative action. But it's back again! The Upper Lochsa Land Exchange has returned with a new name but in nearly identical format. Since 2013 Western Pacific Timber has continued to employ ex-Senator Larry Craig and his staffer Mark Rey to lobby for a land exchange. These paid lobbyists have collaborated with Governor Butch Otter to engage the Idaho Department of Lands (IDL) in the deliberately renamed ULX, now the Central Idaho Land Exchange. It's a 3-way deal. IDL puts $30 million in escrow, Western Pacific Timber deeds its cutover lands in the Upper Lochsa to the Forest Service, the Forest Service deeds lands to IDL, and the money in escrow goes to WPT.All of this would require federal legislation. IDL claims they will maintain public access. However, history shows there is no guarantee that IDL would not eventually sell or exchange the lands acquired. The exchange would result in the loss of thousands of acres. These national forest lands are owned by all Americans, and loved by the people of Idaho for their proximity and opportunities for sustainable logging, hunting, fishing, camping and more. Perhaps most important the exchange would set a precedent where future public lands could be deeded, sold or traded to a state through legislation. We the undersigned petition Congress to oppose legislation involving the Central Idaho Land Exchange. Idaho Department of Lands and Governor C.L. “Butch” Otter should immediately drop the pursuit of an exchange. The cutover lands owned by Western Pacific Timber in the Upper Lochsa should be pursued in a way that would not result in the loss of any federal lands. Not One Acre in Any County!
