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 Pope Francis
Excommunicate Paul Ryan for his "mercy"
Paul Ryan, a christian catholic, claims the republican's new health care bill is "an act of mercy". Works of mercy include (Catechism of the Catholic Church par. 2447): To feed the hungry To clothe the naked To shelter the homeless To visit the sick These are the estimated effects of Ryan's bill: According to the Congressional Budget Office 24 Million Americans will lose coverage during the next decade Higher premiums and less coverage for the poor and elderly A 64 year old could pay a $8400 Premium Increase Redistribution of money from the poor to the rich Smaller subsidies for people who don’t qualify for Medicaid A 30% penalty to anyone who loses insurance coverage for more than two months. So better don’t lose your job Tax Cuts for insurers, pharma companies and high earners. $600 billion total States won't be required to cover mental health with Medicaid funds Repealing the expansion of Medicaid by 2020 "There is no mercy in a system that makes healthcare a luxury. There is no mercy in a country that turns their back on those most in need of protection—the elderly, the poor, the sick and the suffering. There is no mercy in a cold shoulder to the mentally ill. There’s no mercy in a policy that takes for granted the sweat, the tears and the sacrifice of working Americans that they shed every day so that they might care for their families’ basic needs—food, shelter, health and hope for tomorrow. There’s no mercy to the 2.6 million people who will lose their job if Obamacare is repealed. This is not an act of mercy. It’s an act of malice." Congressman Joe Kennedy III

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.)
Petition to Glenn Thompson
Demand Rep. Glenn "GT" Thompson Censure President Trump's Charlottesville Remarks
READ THE RESOLUTION OF CENSURE This petition was created by PA5 Truth and Action, a grassroots voters' group whose purpose is to hold PA5's representative accountable. The current representative for PA5 is Glenn "GT" Thompson. Glenn Thompson has offered only the weakest of written statements regarding the acts of domestic terrorism perpetrated in Charlottesville, Virginia on August 12, 2017. He has also not said anything in response to President Trump's incendiary remarks following the death of Heather Heyer. Trump has falsely said that "both sides" were to blame for the violence, and attempted to create a moral equivalency between hate groups and those who were protesting against them. Since then, he has made a series of oral and written statements which suggest that Trump is sympathetic to the cause of hate groups. As Rep. Thompson is surely aware, there are numerous hate groups in his congressional district, and Trump's winks and nods to these groups will serve to further embolden them. What happened at the University of Virginia could easily happen at Penn State or another institution in our district next time. By providing cover for the violence of neo-Nazis, Klan members, and white supremacists, Trump is normalizing racism and bigotry. He is encouraging the very worst of us to continue their racist crusade. He is attempting to, wittingly or not, weave the vile ideology of hatred into the fabric of American discourse. For this, Congress must censure the president. We must as one voice unequivocally announce that there is no room for hatred and bigotry in the United States. By publicly announcing his support for the resolution of censure introduced by Rep. Jerry Nadler of New York, Rep. Bonnie Watson Coleman of New Jersey, and Rep. Pramila Jayapal of Washington, Rep. Thompson will show that he has our best interests at heart, and will defend the liberties of his constituents. Please only sign this petition if you are a constituent of Rep. Glenn Thompson. You can identify your representative using this tool. Photo attribution: https://www.flickr.com/photos/taedc/36386534822/

Congressional Investigation into Coinbases ability to service accounts.
Coinbase is a Digital Currency trading platform giving customers the ability to buy and sell Digital Currency on line and through their phones. Due to the fluctuations in digital currency the asset is extremely volatile. Coinbase customer service takes 48 to 72 hours to let locked out customers back in once locked out and it can be longer if there is any sort of problem. Their systems are routinely down leading to customers not being able to get back into their account for even longer. When this happens you have customers in a volatile asset at the mercy of Coinbase to let them back in while their account value can wildly fluctuate. This petition hopes to solve the problems Coinbase has in servicing accounts, and not have customers locked into a volatile asset for any longer then it would take a Brokerage or a Bank of this size to service a customers account. THIS IS A PETITION TO CALL FOR SPECIAL COUNSEL TO CONDUCT A COMPLETE AND THROUGH IMPARTIAL, BIPARTISAN INVESTIGATION INTO COINBASE ON THE FOLLOWING MATTERS: 1) The ability for Coinbase to service accounts in a timely manner. 2) The average length of time a Coinbase customer is locked out of their account for any reason, and the length of time it took for Coinbase customer service to get them back into their account. 3) Coinbase boasts 50B+ in Digital Currency exchanged, and 10m+ Customers served. Do they have the infrastructure to handle such large volumes of customers and transaction and resolve problems within a reasonable amount of time? 4) What is a reasonable amount of time for a customer of Coinbase to be locked out of their account? Especially one that fluctuates so wildly. 5) Is it just company growing pains or negligence by Coinbase by not providing the infrastructure for customers to get back into their accounts in a timely fashion, and still accepting new accounts making the problem worse. 6) If it is decided to be negligence. is Coinbase responsible in any way for losses incurred by customers who where unable to get back into their account due to low staffing, long wait times, systems being down, and not being able to resolve issues in a timely fashion. All while accepting new customers. Possible solutions: A cap on accounts Coinbase can open until they can service accounts in a timely fashion (A metric can be used based on historical fluctuation). A hard limit on the length of time a customer can be locked out of their account. Backup systems for when their vital systems have outages. Not having Coinbase and GDAX connected, so if you are locked out of one you can still trade on the other.

Demand resignation of Trump: a self-admitted sexual predator
It is disservice to women and men everywhere to continue to tolerate a self admitted sexual predator as president of the United States. In this evolutionary #metoo movement we see with sexual harrassers and predators resigning across all strata of society, it is hypocrisy in its most extreme to let the president remain in his position whilst other senators are resigning and potentially being elected in the midst of seriously disturbing allegations. Consistency in our standards of treatment of these matters and our self respect and integrity as women and men on this Earth is at question if we continue to support a misogynist as President. What message does it send to our future generations? How will all of you stand when history inevitably turns it's lens on you? How will we truly be the country we aspire to be when we suffer this double standard and look the other way? It is an empty #metoo movement if the President himself is not investigated by an ethics committee for his sexual allegations, assaults, and misconduct that go back decades and 19 women have accused him of. It is a travesty of justice if he is allowed to remain to govern this country when he can't even govern where his hands may land on a woman? So I urge you to please sign the petition. I am an American woman who feels outraged by this cognitive dissonance and am asking every female senator in the government regardless of your party to search your heart and do the right thing. I'm asking America to do the right thing by women, by our mothers, our daughters, our sisters, our friends, and our sons to be raised in a better society that values women and our sovereignty over our bodies.

Make the Trump Administration Raise Carbon Taxes on Businesses
Image credit: https://www.theguardian.com/environment/2010/feb/02/hockey-stick-graph-climate-change Imagine a deathly hot, dry world with no water or life. This is the eventual fate of our Earth if we don't do something about climate change. If there is even an 18/5 degree increase in temperature, climate change would become runaway, making Earth look like Venus. This is not just China exploiting us for money, this is real. Look at all of the numerous studies showing that the Earth is warming, and it is being caused by humans. Just take a look at the infamous "hockey stick" graph of global temperatures, and say that the temperature didn't start to rise in the 1800s at the same time that we began burning fossil fuels. It isn't China's fault. The blame is likely to be pinned on America if something doesn't change soon. China is trying to get ahead in the game, and if the Trump Administration doesn't take advantage, our economy could be destroyed when no one wants to buy our "primitive" fossil fuel burning technology. Hence, it could help our economy if we start now. Also, think of the habitat and animal losses. A prime example of this is the Tasmanian Tiger. It was an animal that lived in Australia until the early 1900s. It looked almost like a dog, and was the worlds largest carnivorous marsupial. However, when Europeans arrived, the tiger was extinct within 500 years. It was because of changing habitat and habitat loss. This could still happen to many animals today, like elephants and lions. How would you feel if most of the animals and plants alive today became extinct because of your actions? This is the question that many people need to consider. Therefore, the Trump administration should pay more attention to reports of warming temperatures, for the sake of our environment as well as our economy.

A Day Without Trump
Since Donald Trump ran for office in 2016, the news media has revolved their content around him. While it is important that Americans stay in the know about what the Trump Administration is doing and trying to accomplish, it can be overwhelming to see these headlines everyday. In an effort to give the American people a break (and attack Trump's ego), I propose "A Day Without Trump". This would entail leaving Donald Trump and his administration out of the news for a full 24 hours. The day would take place on January 19th, 2018, which is the one year anniversary of his inauguration.
