Petition to President Donald Trump
Stop President Trump and U.S. from Withdrawing from COP21 Paris Agreement
In December 2015, more than 190 countries adopted the Paris Agreement, the most ambitious climate change agreement in history. In order for the agreement to take effect and enter into force, at least 55 countries representing at least 55 percent of global emissions needed to formally join the Agreement. On Setember 3, 2016, the United States and China deposited with United Nations Secretary-General Ban Ki-moon their respective instruments to join the Paris Agreement, marking a significant contribution towards the early entry into force of the Paris Agreement. That action by the United States and China to formally join was a significant step towards entry into force this year with countries representing around 40 percent of global emissions having now joined and more than 55 countries having already joined or publicly committed to work towards joining the agreement by the end of 2016. (Whitehouse.org) Shortly thereafter, on October 5 2016, the threshold for entry into force of the Paris Agreement was achieved. The Paris Agreement entered into force on November 4, 2016, thirty days after the date on which at least 55 Parties to the Convention accounting in total for at least an estimated 55% of the total global greenhouse gas emissions have deposited their instruments of ratification, acceptance, approval or accession with the Depositary. (Unfccc.int) The Agreement represents years of international diplomacy and hope for the millions of people across the planet imminently threatened by the impacts of climate change. It is an unprecedented achievement for the environment and one in which the United States showed extraordinary leadership. Climate change is a matter of international concern. It threatens global security and human rights across the planet. It poses a critical threat to countless natural resources. It is one of the single greatest threats humankind has ever faced. The unity demonstrated by the Paris Agreement, both in its negotiations and its ratification, are an illustration that when joined together, we are a thoughtful, powerful transnational community of citizens that can courageously and collectively work together to tackle critical global problems. The work begun in Paris must not be derailed now. It cannot be. The world cannot afford it. The United States must not withdraw from the Paris Agreement. We are asking Americans and members of the international community to join in sending a strong message to President Donald Trump that any consideration of withdrawing from the Paris Agreement is unacceptable.

Petition to U.S. Department of Justice, Department of Justice, Jason Chaffetz, James Comey, Loretta Lynch
Prosecute Trump for illegal offenses before the Dec. 19 Electoral College Vote.
We respectfully call upon the appropriate Federal Authorities to thoroughly investigate the many possible illegal offenses of Donald Trump, the Trump Corporations, and the Trump Foundation before the members of the Electoral College meet to cast their final vote on Dec. 19. The Electoral College was created by the framers of the constitution to protect against corrupt demagogues; the Electors should be given the full opportunity to vote their conscience if it is formally determined that Trump has broken the law. Throughout the campaign, allegations of Trump's illegal activities have surfaced: tax evasion, business scams, tenant intimidation, hiring of undocumented workers, illegal trade, bribery, sexual assault, incitement of violence, and collusion with a foreign government to influence an American election. If Trump is guilty of crimes, he does not deserve to be our President. https://twitter.com/CriminalTrump
Petition to Members of Congress c/o Nancy Pelosi, President Obama, Vice President Joe Biden, U.S. Senate, Sen. Lindsey Graham (R-SC), Adm. Michael Rogers; Dir. National Security Agency, Senator Harry Reid, Congressman Jason Chafettz
Letter to Congress re: Investigation of Russian interference in 2016 Presidential Election
Dear Members of Congress, We the people urge you investigate the evidence of Russian interference of the 2016 U.S. presidential election. The public has the right to know if Putin or anyone else corrupted the political mechanisms of the nation. If, when, and where any evidence is found that Russian interference in the 2016 presidential election has affected the final voting outcome, then new emergency repeat elections MUST be conducted by paper ballot in those affected states. We MUST not allow the 2016 United States presidential election to be hijacked by Russia or by anybody else.To allow this is to negate the very idea of democracy itself. If we allow the Russians to interfere with our democratic presidential election voting process, then all of the American people will have been made into Vladimir Putin's puppets. On 11/15/2016 the director of the National Security Agency, Admiral Michael Rogers, was asked about the WikiLeaks release of hacked information during the campaign, and he said, "This was a conscious effort by a nation-state to attempt to achieve a specific effect." He added, "This was not something that was done casually. This was not something that was done by chance. This was not a target that was selected purely arbitrarily." This stunning statement that has echoed other remarks from senior US officials. Adm. Rogers is saying that Russia directly intervened in the US election to obtain a desired end: presumably to undermine confidence in US elections or to elect Donald Trump—or both. Adm. Rogers was clearly accusing Vladimir Putin of meddling with American democracy. Presumably intelligence and law enforcement agencies are robustly probing the hacking of political targets attributed to Russia. But there is another inquiry that is necessary: a full-fledged congressional investigation that holds public hearings and releases its findings to the citizenry. If the FBI, CIA, and other intelligence agencies are digging into the Russian effort to affect US politics, there is no guarantee that what they uncover will be shared with the public. The investigative activities of these agencies are not designed for public enlightenment or assurance. That's the job of Congress. That is what is required now. If a foreign government has mucked about and undercut a presidential election, how can Americans be secure about the foundation of the nation and trust their own government? So far, the only Capitol Hill legislator who has publicly called for such an endeavor is Sen. Lindsey Graham (R-S.C.). Sen. Graham, has proposed that Congress hold hearings on "Russia's misadventures throughout the world," including the DNC hack. "Were they involved in cyberattacks that had a political component to it in our elections?" The possibility that a foreign government covertly interfered with US elections is staggering. It raises the most profound concerns about governance within the United States. An investigation into this matter should not be relegated to the secret corners of the FBI or the CIA. There already is reason to be suspicious. Without a thorough examination, there will be more cause to question American democracy.
Petition to Donald Trump, Speaker Paul Ryan, U.S. House of Representatives, Dr. Ben Carson
Don’t make Americans suffer. Keep the pre-existing condition clause for health insurance
In 2017, the future of healthcare in America will be decided by President Trump and Congress. I want to be sure that people like me, those with a chronic illness, have a voice in the path forward. My name is Linda, and I’m a married mother of two children. My husband is a hard-working, self-employed man who does his best to provide for all of us. Because he’s self-employed and I have a pre-existing health condition, it was virtually impossible to find health insurance coverage before Obamacare came along. Before Obamacare, health insurance companies would reject us outright, or would direct us to a high-risk insurance pool with annual or lifetime caps on coverage due to my pre-existing condition. These high-risk insurance pools were extremely expensive and often provided limited coverage -- which doesn’t guarantee critical care treatment needs for people with chronic health conditions. This was devastating to the chronic care community. Since Trump and the Republicans in Congress announced their plan to repeal and replace Obamacare, I have yet to see any plan that ensures people like me will be able to transition into similar care with no coverage gap, or even retain access to affordable, critical ongoing chronic care. If the pre-existing condition clause goes away with an Obamacare repeal, millions of Americans will be impacted. Our emergency rooms will be overrun with individuals who can no longer get regular care for their chronic conditions, and health care costs will spiral out of control once again. I also run a ministry for women with chronic health conditions and hear these same fears from the women I help counsel since the President-elect announced his intention to repeal Obamacare. No one in our great country should ever know the fear and frustration of fighting for every scrap of insurance coverage when you have a chronic, lifelong disease. Please sign this petition today and help make sure that Americans with pre-existing health conditions don’t get left behind. Tell Congress and our new President to protect those with pre-existing conditions.
Petition to Timothy O. Horne, Norman Dong
GSA: End Trump lease on Old Post Office Hotel
Timothy O. Horne Acting Administrator General Services Administration Washington, DC Dear Administrator Horne: We call upon you to fulfill your administrative duty and cancel the lease between Trump Old Post Office LLC and the General Services Administration which concerns the Trump International Old Post Office Pavilion Hotel. As you are aware, the lease contains a clause which states: “No ... elected official of the Government of the United States ... shall be admitted to any share or part of this Lease, or to any benefit that may arise therefrom...” Now that Donald J. Trump has been inaugurated as President of the United States, he is in default of the lease between the GSA and Trump Old Post Office LLC, inasmuch as Donald J. Trump is chairman, president, and majority stakeholder. Two prominent legal experts on contract law, Professor Steven Schooner, Nash & Cibinic Professor of Government Procurement Law at the George Washington University Law School; and Daniel I. Gordon, senior advisor to G.W. University’s Government Procurement Law Program and former administrator for federal procurement policy, have recently written that if the current lease agreement remains in effect, President Trump will receive compensation from the federal government separate from his annual salary, which is prohibited by the Constitution. Further, they write that: “GSA employees handling the Trump lease will be caught between their duty to protect the interests of the building’s landlord—that is, the government, the public, and the taxpayers—and their duty of loyalty to the GSA administrator, who will be appointed by, and serve at the pleasure of then-President Trump.” Professor Schooner and Mr. Gordon conclude that “to protect the integrity of the federal government’s procurement process, GSA must end its lease arrangement with President-elect Trump now.” In addition, Richard Painter, Professor of Law at the University of Minnesota, has stated on several major news broadcasts that President-elect Trump Organization must divest from all of the many businesses in which he is involved, including Trump hotels, that now receive, and will receive future income from foreign governments, foreign corporations owned in part or wholly by foreign governments, and representatives of any foreign governments. Senators Elizabeth Warren and Tom Carper (Member, Committee on Homeland Security and Government Affairs) write in a letter to the GSA dated December 1, 2016 that: “In a material term of the contract, GSA requires that no elected officials play a role in the agreement … However, once President-elect Trump assumes office, he will oversee GSA and have the authority to appoint a new GSA Administrator, which will effectively make President-elect Trump landlord and tenant at the same time.” The Senators cite two provisions in the Constitution prohibiting the President from receiving additional “emoluments”—salaries, fees, or profits—from either the U.S. or foreign governments, to wit, Article II, Section 1, Clause 7 of the Constitution, (which) states: “The President shall…receive for his Services, a Compensation…and he shall not receive within that Period any other Emolument from the United States, or any of them.” They also cite Article I, Section 9, Clause 8 of the Constitution—often referred to as the “Emoluments Clause”— which states: “And no Person holding any Office…shall, without the Consent of the Congress, accept of any present, Emolument...of any kind whatever, from any...foreign State.” The senators urge that: “GSA should immediately take steps to identify and mitigate any potential conflicts of interest relating to its lease agreement with President-elect Trump, including removing itself from the agreement to avoid any violations of law.” It seems clear to us based on the legal positions expressed above that as leaseholder on the Old Post Office Pavilion Hotel, President Trump is now in violation of Article II, Section 1, Clause 7 and the Emoluments Clause of the US Constitution. Since the Old Post Office Pavilion Hotel is an historic public property administered by the GSA, and thus the property of the American people, we believe you will best serve the interests of the people of the United States if you take whatever steps are necessary to cancel, breach, or otherwise end the contract between General Services Administration and Trump Old Post Office LLC as expeditiously as possible.

IMPEACH: Legal Removal of President & Vice President, et al., for Misprision of Treason
A Petition for: The legal impeachment and or legal removal of The President & Vice President, et al., for Treason and Misprision of Treason. Regarding the known and recorded activities of: D.J. Trump Sr., M. Pence, S. Bannon, P. Manafort, C. Page, LTG. M. Flynn, R. Stone, R. Tillerson, S. Miller, S. Mnuchin, J.C. Kushner, J. Kushner, R. Giuliani, M. McConnell, P. Ryan, J. Chaffetz, B. Epshteyn, J. Sessions, K. Conway, S. Spicer, R.L. Mercer, R. Mercer, D. Mercer, C. Koch, D. Koch, K. Rove, W. Deng Murdoch, A. Scaramucci, C. Lewandowski, D.J. Trump Jr., E. Trump, I.M. Trump, I.M. Trump, M.K. Trump, John & Jane Doe; et. al. (1-100) That the above parties having had certain knowledge of relationships of one Donald John Trump with numerous Russian oligarchs and one Vladimir Vladimirovich Putin, a former high ranking KGB officer, who is the current President of the Russian Federation, (a nation that has clearly positioned itself as the foremost geopolitical and military enemy of the United States, NATO and EU); did not find patriotic merit in informing any US authorities of the 'clear and present US national security threat danger' posed when said individual Donald John Trump ran for President of the United States, are thus guilty of : 18 U.S. Code § 2382 "Misprision of Treason" "Whoever, owing allegiance to the United States and having knowledge of the commission of any treason against them, conceals and does not, as soon as may be, disclose and make known the same to the President or to some judge of the United States, or to the governor or to some judge or justice of a particular State, is guilty of misprision of treason and shall be fined under this title or imprisoned not more than seven years, or both."(June 25, 1948, ch. 645, 62 Stat. 807; Pub. L. 103–322, title XXXIII, § 330016(1)(H), Sept. 13, 1994, 108 Stat. 2147.) Its is therefore our desire that the above individuals as named above, be charged, brought to swift trial, impeached, if guilty, punished according to all applicable US statutes, and prevented from holding any further US public office, forever. So that the nightmare of having traitors to our nation, in charge of our nation's affairs and our nuclear deterrent forces, might be swiftly rectified, we additionally request that Clinton / Kaine be simply declared the overall victors of the 2016 popular count election and installed immediately. The Clinton / Kaine overwhelming popular vote majority of 65,844,954 (48.2%) to 62,979,879 (46.1%) was such an overwhelming 2.9 million American citizen majority that it must finally be respected as such, anything else is denying mathematical reality and the Federalist founders ultimate intent of "one person, one vote" as the foundational bedrock of our republic's constitutional democracy. The voice of the majority population of the People of the United States must now finally be heard, so that a rational, sane, secure, continuity of government might prevail even as the current emergency is simultaneously resolved. VERIFIABLE FACTS: Director of The National Security Agency (NSA), Admiral Michael Rogers, said that there shouldn’t be “any doubt in anybody’s mind” that another country tampered with the U.S. election. During the 2016 election time period, Office of the Director of National Intelligence (ODNI) publicly revealed that elements of Russian intelligence agencies, namely GRU, (Main Intelligence Agency of the General Staff of the Armed Forces of the Russian Federation / Гла́вное разве́дывательное управле́ние), had covert interest in the US Presidential campaign of Donald John Trump. The most sensitive activity of the GRU is gathering intelligence on American leaders. Furthermore it was known by the above individuals that Donald John Trump's main advisor, one Paul Manafort, had previously worked extensively on behalf of Putin's ally, pro-Russian Ukrainian dictator Yanukovych between 2007 and 2012. For those services, Manafort received $12.7 million in cash payments from Yanukovych’s political party. It was also known by the above individuals that on December 10, 2015, one LTG Michael Thomas Flynn (USA ret.), the fired former Director of The Defense Intelligence Agency (DIA); was the personal dinner guest in Moscow of Russian President Vladimir Vladimirovich Putin (former Director of the FSB, successor Russian intelligence agency to the Soviet KGB). Even after that news of that improper trip became public, LTG Michael Thomas Flynn was still drafted by the Trump campaign in February of 2016 to serve as one of its key advisors. Furthermore, in July of 2016, LTG Michael Thomas Flynn was officially being considered as Donald John Trump's Vice-Presidential running mate. LTG Michael Thomas Flynn confirmed that he had submitted his vetting documents to the campaign and that he was fully willing to accept the Republican Vice-Presidential nomination if chosen. During that period, the Democratic National Committee was cyber-attacked by parties connected to the Russian military security service GRU, who stole US emails (in violation of US laws) who then forwarded doctored versions to Julian Assange's WikiLeaks in Europe; as part of a GRU intelligence campaign of 'Active Measures' (активные мероприятия) to spread disinformation among the US voting electorate, to help Donald John Trump during the 2016 US presidential election. During that exact same time period, computer experts determined that there were continuous, covert, computer communications via KGB founded Russian Alfa Bank and Donald John Trump's campaign. On November 10, 2016, president-elect Donald John Trump met with then President Obama at the White House. In their meeting, President Obama pointedly warned Donald John Trump NOT to hire LTG Michael Thomas Flynn under any circumstances, due to his Putin connections. Despite that face to face warning from President Obama, on November 18, 2016, president-elect Donald John Trump's offered the key position of US National Security Advisor to LTG Michael Thomas Flynn. This appointment was offered even though, he had already drawn repeated harsh public and private criticism for what sources then described as his unusually close and improper (form a counter-intelligence standpoint) personal relations with officials of the hostile Russian government. In complete disregard of that glaringly inconsistent anomaly, LTG Michael Thomas Flynn was still personally selected by Donald John Trump (and his transition team headed by Vice-President elect Michael Richard Pence) to be the next US National Security Advisor, a key position of strategic and paramount import that is the nexus between the military and intelligence security elements of the United States government and the Presidency of the United States. The potential importance to the United States of the proper vetting of that key position in any administration, can be understood by the official duties of the US National Security Advisor (APNSA); which are to coordinate US defense, foreign affairs, international economic policy, and all global intelligence while yet properly controlling the flow of information to the President. On 29 December 2016, the Obama administration White House sanctioned the GRU (ГРУ Генера́льного шта́ба) and the Federal Security Service of the Russian Federation known as FSB, (Федеральная служба безопасности Российской Федерации - ФСБ) for alleged tampering and disinformation during the 2016 US presidential election. In addition, the Obama administration Department of State also declared 35 Russian diplomats persona non grata and denied Russian diplomatic staff access to two Russian government-owned compounds in Maryland and New York. The Obama administration White House also sanctioned several GRU officials including GRU Chief Igor Valentinovich Korobov, Deputy Chief Sergey Aleksandrovich Gizunov, and First Deputy Chiefs Igor Olegovich Kostyukov and Vladimir Stepanovich Alexseyev. On that very same day, December 29, 2016, (during the Obama administration), LTG Michael Thomas Flynn spoke personally with Russian ambassador Sergey Kislyak, the very same day the Obama administration announced retaliatory measures in response to Russia's interference in the 2016 presidential campaign; if there was intent to interfere with or defeat said measures, this clearly constitutes a felony violation under the Logan act. Donald John Trump's incoming press secretary, Sean Spicer, said he doubted that LTG Michael Thomas Flynn and Sergey Kislyak discussed the retaliatory measures. The Wall Street Journal reported on January 22, 2017, that LTG Michael Thomas Flynn was under investigation by U.S. counterintelligence for his numerous communications with high ranking Russian officials and Russian intelligence agents. On February 9, 2017, U.S. intelligence officials shared an account of the transcripts of LTG Michael Thomas Flynn's interactions with Sergey Kislyak, which indicated that he did indeed discuss the sanctions placed on Russia by the Obama administration, and LTG Michael Thomas Flynn's spokesman released a statement that LTG Michael Thomas Flynn “indicated that while he had no recollection of discussing sanctions, he couldn’t be certain that the topic never came up.” It is now further proven by US intel intercepts that Donald John Trump personally, and his representatives individually, and severally (such as LTG Michael Thomas Flynn and Manafort) have personally visited, communicated with, and taken monetary (and in kind) payments from officials of the Russian state, as well as oligarchs and organizations during the 2016 campaign. This was in direct violation of numerous US laws pertaining to election tampering, espionage, diplomacy, and treason. During the campaign we have heard Donald John Trump, on numerous occasions, oddly praise Russian President Putin, while condemning US allies as Germany, Japan, Ukraine, NATO and the EU, as well as excoriating the US Intelligence Community, insulting our Armed Forces' hard working and experienced battlefield troops and their general officers, and even bashing the Gold Star Mother of Capt. Khan, who died while preventing a suicide attack upon a mess hall near Baqubah, Iraq, and was posthumously awarded a Purple Heart and Bronze Star. As if all of that was not tragic enough, the Trump administration is also doing serious harm to America’s longstanding global intelligence partnerships. A mere three weeks after the inauguration, Donald John Trump has repeatedly gone out of his way to delegitimize our nation's brave intelligence officers (who have served this nation in secret, faithfully, and with honor, since Nathan Hale in 1776), mocking these thousands of quiet, brave, men and women publicly, and in demeaning their precious work, he has even incredibly blown off receiving the PDB (President's Daily Briefing), a brief of the most important daily classified information on national security collected by our 17 U.S. intelligence agencies and given to the President of the United States every morning precisely at 0745 hours, as it has been with every Commander in Chief since JFK. An unnamed US intelligence official said in deep frustration: "Since January 20, we’ve assumed that the Kremlin has human ears inside the White House Situation Room... There’s not much the Russians don’t know at this point..." On January 29, 2017, Donald John Trump suddenly restructured the National Security Council's core "Principals Committee" Donald John Trump gave a permanent invitation to Steve Bannon, White House Chief Strategist, while at the same time eliminating the Chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff and Director of National Intelligence, thus depriving both the Pentagon and US Intelligence Community of any direct way to advise, consent, or dissent to any actions planned by the President and remaining NSC members, 'in the room', face to face. In the modern history of our nation, this is the first time that the Pentagon and the Intelligence Community have been removed from the direct decision making process. In an era when the entire world can be wiped out in in a thermonuclear exchange and 9200 U.S. and Russian strategic nuclear weapons (on high-alert) can be launched in 2 to 3 minutes, and a mass extinction event occur, removal of the Pentagon and the Intelligence Community from the NSC as brakes upon accidental war, or to prevent a "Pearl Harbor Style" sneak attack upon the US (or our NATO & EU allies), is just highly illogical, and profoundly disturbing. Finally, on May 9, 2017, Donald John Trump became only the second United States president to fire the Director of the FBI, who was heading up two separate investigations into the relationships between the Trump campaign, Russian President Vladimir Vladimirovich Putin, Russian intelligence and Russian oligarchs. Naturally, Americans wanted to know: Why? The exact answer remained elusive over the course of three days following the announcement. Trump and his White House gave numerous, contradictory explanations for James B. Comey’s firing. The ORIGINAL explanation by Donald John Trump and his administration was that Deputy Attorney General Rod J. Rosenstein and Attorney General Jeff Sessions initiated Comey’s firing. In a letter to US AG Sessions, Rosenstein criticized Comey’s handling of the FBI’s investigation into Hillary Clinton’s private email server use as secretary of state. He did not explicitly call for his dismissal. US AG Sessions forwarded the Rosenstein letter to Donald John Trump , recommending he remove Director Comey. US AG Sessions stated: “Based on my evaluation, and for the reasons expressed by the Deputy Attorney General in the attached memorandum, I have concluded that a fresh start is needed at the leadership of the FBI.” Donald John Trump then wrote a letter to Director Comey, saying he was acting on their recommendation. The next day, May 10, 2017, White House spokeswoman Sarah Huckabee Sanders fully contradicted that version of events and revealed that Donald John Trump had himself actually asked for the recommendation of Rosenstein and Sessions. That very same day, May 10, 2017, Donald John Trump jovially met with Russian Foreign Minister Lavrov and Russian Ambassador Kisalyak (whom ODNI outed as THE Russian spy master in the United States). This meeting in the Oval Office was unusual in its timing and in the fact that only the Russian state media 'TASS" was allowed. ALL American news media were summarily banned. In that same meeting, according to current and former U.S. officials, Donald John Trump deliberately revealed, highly classified, 'above Top Secret', foreign ally obtained intelligence information to Russian Foreign Minister Lavrov and Russian Ambassador Kisalyak. U.S. officials said Trump’s unprecedented disclosures jeopardized a critical source of intelligence on the Islamic State (ISIL), as well as jeopardizing US and Foreign Ally intel field assets. The information Donald John Trump leaked in the meeting, had been provided by a U.S. partner through an intelligence-sharing arrangement considered so sensitive that details have been withheld from US allies and tightly restricted even within our U.S. government, officials said. The partner had not given the United States permission to share the material with Russia, and officials said Trump’s decision to deliberately do so endangers cooperation from an ally that has access to the inner workings of the Islamic State. After the Oval Office meeting, senior White House officials took steps to immediately contain the damage, placing calls to ODNI, CIA, and the National Security Agency. “This is code-word information,” said a U.S. official familiar with the matter, using terminology that refers to one of the highest classification levels used by American spy agencies. Trump “revealed more information to the Russian ambassador than we have shared with our own allies.” Furthermore, Donald John Trump also told Lavrov and Kislyak that firing the F.B.I. director, James B. Comey, had relieved “great pressure” on him, according to a document summarizing the meeting. “I just fired the head of the F.B.I. ... “I faced great pressure because of Russia. That’s taken off.” Donald John Trump added, “I’m not under investigation.” The conversation, during a May 10 meeting — the day after he fired Mr. Comey — reinforces the notion that Donald John Trump dismissed him primarily because of the bureau’s investigation into possible collusion between his campaign and Russian operatives. The White House document that contained Donald John Trump's comments was based on notes taken from inside the Oval Office and has been circulated as the official account of the meeting. The next day, Thursday, May 11, 2017, NBC aired an interview with Donald John Trump. In the interview, Donald John Trump offered yet another reason for firing Comey: The FBI’s investigation into Russia’s interference in the 2016 presidential election. In the interview with Lester Holt on 'NBC Nightly News', Donald John Trump said: "There is no collusion and everybody has said — and I think you will admit that — there's no collusion between me and my campaign and the Russians." “Regardless of any recommendation, I was going to fire Comey” Donald John Trump thus violated Federal Obstruction of Justice statutes, by firing the FBI Director who was the nexus of the criminal investigation into Donald John Trump's presidential campaign, his global business dealings, as well as additional US counter-intelligence, and FISA findings. Donald John Trump then went on to maintain that Comey's dismissal would not impede the FBI’s investigation, which he said: "It should be over with... “As far as I’m concerned, I want that thing to be absolutely done properly” ... “But I said to myself, I might even lengthen out the investigation” There can be no question in any rational person's mind that by firing Director Comey, Donald John Trump was attempting to cover up the multiple investigations into his myriad political and business dealings with Russia. In these ways and others, Donald John Trump (and cohorts) have clearly adhered to the enemies of the United States while simultaneously weakening United States defense, intelligence, and geopolitical posture. There is no question that these individuals have seriously violated the Hatch and Logan Acts and committed acts of treason, and clear concealments of treason under: 18 U.S. Code § 2381 "Treason", 18 U.S. Code § 2382 "Misprision of Treason", "Obstruction of Justice" 18 U.S. Code § 1512 (tampering with federal witnesses), 18 U.S. Code § 1513 (retaliating against federal witnesses), 18 U.S. Code § 1503 (obstruction of pending federal court proceedings), 18 U.S. Code § 1505 (obstruction of pending congressional or federal administrative proceedings), 18 U.S. Code § 371 (conspiracy). IN CONCLUSION What we have here before us is Vladimir Putin's concerted attempt at a permanent political and military realignment and reversion of United States policies towards Russia via purported blackmail influence over the Trump Presidency. If left unchecked, the Destruction of America & NATO from WITHIN via Donald John Trump, shall be the end result of Putin's determined chess game. This destruction of the United States, NATO, and the EU shall finally facilitate Putin's decades long dreams of an expansionist 'Greater Russia' not only in predominate control of Eastern Europe but also of Western Europe and the United States, as well. After the significant revelations of the Putin / Trump / Manafort / Panama Papers.... the apparent quid pro quo between Trump & Putin for Ukraine / Baltics / NATO / EU, the failure of Trump to publicly reveal sources of income in his taxes, etc.; it must be clearly affirmed that no one, not even the President of the United States is above the "Laws of the Land", up to and including, "TREASON". 18 U.S. Code § 2381 "Treason" "Whoever, owing allegiance to the United States, levies war against them (or adheres to their enemies), giving them aid and comfort within the United States or elsewhere, is guilty of treason and shall suffer death, or shall be imprisoned not less than five years and fined under this title but not less than $10,000; and shall be incapable of holding any office under the United States."(June 25, 1948, ch. 645, 62 Stat. 807; Pub. L. 103–322, title XXXIII, §330016(2)(J), Sept. 13, 1994, 108 Stat. 2148.)

Time to Impeach Trump: Obstructing Justice and Abuse of Power
President Donald J. Trump has displayed that he is unfit for President in numerous ways. Former FBI Director Comey has helped make it clear from his testimony this morning that President Trump has contributed to at minimum obstructing justice and abusing his power.Democracy for America points out that Comey has jut began by saying:* Trump invited Comey to a private dinner at the White House and pushed him over and over to compromise his impartiality, implying that Comey could be replaced if he didn't and outright saying, "I need loyalty, I expect loyalty." Comey refused.* Later, shortly after former national security advisor Michael Flynn's resignation, Trump pulled Comey aside after a briefing and pushed him to drop the investigation into Flynn, saying repeatedly, "I hope you can let this go."* Following that meeting, Trump called Comey on the phone multiple times to complain about the Russia investigation. As Comey wrote: "He said he had nothing to do with Russia, had not been involved with hookers in Russia, and had always assumed he was being recorded when in Russia. He asked what we could do to 'lift the cloud.” Join me in urging the U.S. House and U.S. Senate Leadership that the time for impeachment is now and has never been more clear. All eyes are Congress to keep the nations integrity and national security protected. Photo Credit: The Atlantic

Internet Privacy and Net Neutrality
While many of you may think that you are secure on the internet, none of you are. How many of you have a Gmail? How about a Google plus or a twitter account? YouTube? These programs are tracking you. Public law 115-22, passed on April 3, takes privacy protection to a whole new level. On December 16, 2016, the Obama administration and The FCC (Federal Communications Commission), passed a law relating to “Protecting the Privacy of Customers of Broadband and Other Telecommunications Services”, or FCC 16-148. While you can feel free to Google that, it’s a 72-page document, so I’ll just give you the gist of it. This new law protected Net Neutrality and customer privacy. Internet Service providers such as Verizon now had to protect their subscribers from cyberattacks, report any cyberattacks, protect their subscriber’s privacy, and could not sell user data. Consider this: you pay for Internet. You don’t pay for Google or Twitter. Google and twitter’s services are free. Google only makes $32 dollars off you. If you had been willing to pay just $32, you could get Google without trackers! But in the early 2000’s, the consumers decided that they didn’t want to pay for internet services. So, websites like Tripod (The precursor of Myspace, which was the precursor of Facebook, etc.), started placing ads on their pages. This worked great for a while, up until some executive decided that they could make more money if they targeted specific users. (Ad Networks pay-per-click, which means the more clicks on an ad, the more the website makes.) And so tracking was born! But back to Public law 115-22. No only does this law remove online privacy protections, but it also means that ISPs no longer have to report cyberattacks, so your passwords, Social Security Number, and more could be compromised, and Verizon, AT&T, Comcast, Bell, or whatever ISP you use, wouldn’t even have to tell you! And guess what? That data that ISPs now have access to means that they are making even more money by selling your data that you pay them to acquire. Not to mention, Net Neutrality is down the toilet as well, which means that the internet could be more like a TV service, where you pay for individual sites, or websites like Netflix would have to pay to deliver their content to customers on that ISP. So what can you do? You can sign my petition, or talk to your local congressman. And to protect your data, you can sign up for a VPN like Tunnel Bear, or use TOR, i2p, or freenet. You can also look for a green lock on the upper left hand corner of your browser to ensure that the site that you are browsing is secure. But most importantly, you need to stay aware of what you are sharing online, and who you are sharing it with. And remember, your data isn’t yours anymore when it’s on the Internet.
