Impeach Donald J. Trump: The Million American Petition
Your signature is the new vote; it's not too late. The Constitution of the United States, Art. 2, S. 4, provides that the president, vice-president, and civil officers of the United States shall be removed from office on impeachment for, and conviction of treason, bribery, and/or other high crimes and misdemeanors. We, the undersigned, lobby for the impeachment of Donald J. Trump suspected of treason, in violation of THE USA PATRIOT ACT for conspiring with Russia in tampering with the results of the 2016 election. He and his administration are an immediate threat to national security and his use of intimidation as president presents undeniable challenges in this investigation. Ergo, we petition his immediate removal from office as well as the removal of Vice President Mike Pence and all civil officers appointed under his rule, pending the results of his administration's investigation. Donald J. Trump has violated the Federal law under civil and criminal ordinances with his documented use of libelous and insulting hate speech referencing citizens of color, immigrants, and those of the Muslim faith. His promotion and acceptance of violence towards the above stated has incited violence, discrimination and increased tensions throughout this nation.Furthermore, Donald J. Trump is in violation of state law in the following 34 states: Alaska, Arizona, Arkansas, California, Colorado, Delaware, Florida, Georgia, Idaho, Illinois,Iowa, Kansas, Kentucky, Louisiana, Maryland, Massachusetts, Minnesota, Mississippi, Missouri, Nebraska, Nevada, New Hampshire, New Jersey, New York, North Carolina, Oklahoma, Oregon, Pennsylvania, Rhode Island, South Carolina, Utah, Virginia, Washington, and Wyoming. He is guilty of multiple counts of cyber bullying, before, during and following his election campaign; the most egregious being his statements regarding Mexicans, Muslims, the black community and his continuous taunting of China. Unlawful conduct of any kind, be it past, present or future is unacceptable of any person holding the office of President of the United States of America. He has caused international conflict with our allies and is dangerously close to destroying peaceful foreign relations. Donald J.Trump’s leadership poses a threat to the peace and safety of our nation on both national and international levels. His immoral reputation and misconduct are an embarrassment and threat to the freedoms this country stands for and will not be tolerated by United States citizens. ------------------ THIS IS THE PEOPLES PETITION.

The legal removal of The President & Vice President, et al., for Misprision of Treason
A Petition for: The legal removal of The President & Vice President, et al., for Misprision of Treason Regarding known and recorded activities of: D.J. Trump Sr., M. Pence, S. Bannon, P. Manafort, C. Page, Gen. M. Flynn, R. Stone, R. Tillerson, S. Miller, S. Mnuchin, J.C. Kushner, J. Kushner, R. Giuliani, J. Comey, 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 2.9 million (65,844,954 (48.2%) to 62,979,879 (46.1%) was an overwhelming majority and must be respected as such, so that rational, sane, secure, continuity of government might prevail even as the current emergency is simultaneously resolved. VERIFIABLE FACTS: The head of 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 election time period, 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 General Michael T. Flynn, was the personal dinner guest of Vladimir Vladimirovich Putin in Moscow. General Michael T. Flynn was the person selected by Donald John Trump to be National Security Advisor. Subsequently, the Democratic National Committee was cyber-attacked by parties connected to the Russian state 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 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 29 December 2016, the White House sanctioned the GRU 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 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 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 same day, December 29, 2016, during the Obama administration, 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. Trump's incoming press secretary, Sean Spicer, said he doubted that Flynn and Kislyak discussed the retaliatory measures. The Wall Street Journal reported on January 22, 2017, that Flynn was under investigation by U.S. counterintelligence agents for his numerous communications with Russian officials. On February 9, 2017, U.S. intelligence officials shared an account of Flynn's interactions with Kislyak, which indicated that he did discuss the sanctions placed on Russia by the Obama administration, and Flynn's spokesman released a statement that 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 Gen. 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. "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,” an unnamed US intelligence official added in deep frustration." On January 29, 2017, Donald John Trump restructured the National Security Council's "Principals Committee" assigning 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. 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 § 2382 "Misprision of Treason" 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".
Petition to The United States House of Representatives and the United States Senate
Stop President Trump's proposed budget cuts to the National Institutes of Health
President Donald Trump released a budget proposal on 3/16/17 which calls for a $6 billion dollar cut in funding to the National Institutes of Health (NIH), or 20% of the NIH's total budget. The NIH uses more than 80% of its budget to provide grant money to university, hospital, and research center scientists who study relevant public health issues. The NIH is the major funding source for research on cancer, asthma, diabetes, autism and developmental disabilities, Alzheimer's Disease, as well as many other debilitating diseases. NIH funding in its current configuration is inadequate to provide scientists with the tools and training that they need to combat these problems. Lack of funding has left many highly trained and qualified scientists with little or no resources to conduct their work which in many cases had strong potential to make significant advances in human health and medicine. The proposed budget cut would paralyze biomedical research; Both ongoing research progress as well as new and innovative research will be halted. These cuts will directly result in fewer advances in medicine. The proposed cuts will also alter the trajectory of science, as they stand to decimate the funding which is necessary for the training of new scientists. This will result in a reduction in the number of highly skilled biomedical experts in this country. Please do not allow this to happen. The NIH budget needs to be increased, not slashed, if we consider health a priority in this country.
Petition to Donald Trump, Jeff Sessions
President Trump: Meet with medical marijuana patients like my sick daughter.
White House Press Secretary Sean Spicer just said Americans can expect to see “greater enforcement” of federal law against marijuana use. This could be devastating for my family. My six-year-old daughter Morgan suffers from Dravet Syndrome, a rare form of epilepsy that causes frequent and dangerous seizures. We’ve tried everything to help her. She’s taken more than 10 different anti-epilepsy medications but at best, she'd gone only four weeks without a seizure. With advice from our doctors and from families living in other states, we began giving Morgan cannabidiol oil -- a form of medical marijuana.I had a baby who could no longer eat, had kidney stones, hadn’t said a word or smiled, and was so drugged all the time that I would go into the doctor’s office in tears: I couldn’t speak. That all changed when we were able to start giving her the cannabidiol oil. Morgan’s condition greatly improved and I don’t know what we would do without it.That’s why Sean Spicer’s words worry me so much. In New York, where I live, the medical marijuana laws are already so strict that the exact kind of oil that would be best for Morgan isn’t even available. If President Trump and Attorney General Sessions crackdown on state laws like the ones that protect Morgan, what will happen to her?I’m asking President Trump and Attorney General Sessions to please meet with medical marijuana patients like Morgan and others. They need to hear our stories and see just how important this treatment is to so many families. Spicer even went so far as to associate marijuana use with the opioid crisis: "When you see something like the opioid addiction crisis blossoming in so many states around this country, the last thing we should be doing is encouraging people," he said. There are 28 states with medical marijuana laws and 4 states that have fully legalized adult-use of marijuana. If the Trump administration truly believes in states rights and smaller government, I hope they will at least meet with the people who benefit from these laws before cracking down on them.

#ProgressiveDisruption by the States
What happened to make this country the focus of judgment, laughter, and fear from the rest of the world? The industrialized world outside of the United States enjoys a better quality of life and general happiness that most of us can only imagine. First class education, comprehensive health care, clean food/water/air and an overall better relationship with their fellow citizens. And as a country, we have higher mortality rates at younger ages, poorer health, and an impoverished population who can't learn new skills without going deeper into debt. As much as we like to blame Donald Trump for our national problems; these problems were here before him, and they will still be here if Trump is removed from office tomorrow. We have a political system that centralizes power to a consolidated political center in Washington, DC and an economic center in New York City. Our Electoral System will isolate the power to determine the direction of our political system to a very small, easily manipulated portion of the electorate in strategic location. Worst of all, we have a large portion of the population who will empower a mentally unstable man to the highest office in the world; just so they can say “We Won”. This group is constantly complaining about a simple world with plentiful jobs in their communities that are extinct or never really existed. And now, they have the nerve to complain about losing the federal government programs they benefitted from and voted against. It's time we said “ENOUGH” and have Progressive States and Communities band together and share resources and ideas to provide a better quality of life for its people, that the Trump Administration wants to take away. And furthermore, we need to ensure that we only support States and Communities who will change their policies for its people. We can no longer provide assistance to Red States, just so they can abuse and neglect their citizens for business interests. For the future of this nation, we need to explore every legal method possible to protect the people from an extremely dangerous President Trump. A Values Based Alliance of the States (VBAS) is one way of resisting this new reality of government, and the dangerous changes that we all know are inevitable. I understand that the constitution will not allow us to directly stop this monstrosity, but it will allows us to devalue it. A VBAS of certain states with similar values and policy preferences can and will use its population centers and economic influence to co-op, share resources, and implement policies with other co-opted states, while not having to depend on or engage the federal government. Examples: There are certain states with a majority of people that believe single payer healthcare system (CA, MA, VT, NY, WA, OR, IL, HI.). If those states passed laws to provide single payer health care for it’s people, a Single Payer Healthcare VBAS organization of those states can share resources to improve efficiencies, expand medical training/education amongst the co-opted states, negotiate pharmaceutical/treatment, amend needed tax policies and petition the US Government. This would also force neighboring states to decide if they want to change their internal policies to provide single payer, so they can join the Health Care VBAS. A resident of Indiana might ask his state to join the VBAS, because he could literally see his next door neigbor in Illinois fully covered, and using a Doctor that just came back from his training at a medical school in California. Although the VBAS states can not legally sign the Paris accords, they can change their internal policies to abide by its recommendations. There could be an environmental protection VBAS, where the states involved agree to abide by the Paris accords, improve safety protocols within its states, take climate change seriously, and provide economic preference to states and nations that do the same. CA, OR, NY, MA, VT, WA HI, and NV could agree to be a preferred customer of states or nations that voluntarily reduces its carbon emissions and address climate change, instead of LA or TX, which most likely will not. Other issues could include minimum wage, education, trade agreements, gun control and virtually every policy not adjudicated solely to the federal government. As more VBASes are organized and more states agree to join them, Donald Trump and the ignorance of future presidents become less and less relevant. Please sign this petition and pass it on to as many people as possible.

Independent Commission needed to investigate President Trump & Russia
We are presently in the beginning days of the month of March. The first weekend of March and while President 45 spends his weekend in Florida playing a little bit of golf to unwind, the country's citizens are perplexed. I am a citizen of this nation. My favorite holiday is the 4th of July. I love Thanksgiving during the holiday season because everyone in my family unites together. "Unity" is what seems to be under attack. Why? We have a nation divided and it seems to be because our nation's Capitol and those that represent the American citizens of this nation are unable to find a common ground when it comes to the important issues, concerns, comments, and questions that we all have. Even more so with so much coming to light regarding the President of the United States and his current Administration in the White House. This includes the GOP and most Republicans, it also involves the Dept. of Justice, the FBI, and the investigation into Russia; that of which we the citizens do care about. We do want an investigation, we do want the truth, we do want answers to so many questions and we did want the Intelligence communities to cooperate amongst themselves and we depended on that. We see that no information, evidence is being disclosed amongst the departments themselves, irregardless of foul play or not. It remains stagnant. Unfortunately, we don't see a "united" front in a most crucial and important investigation, a critical investigation such as this one that involves Russia. It is imperative and the citizens want a follow up, we want answers, we want the truth. We cannot state that enough. American citizens want to know the truth. Now, due to unfortunate events, and due to the lack of bipartisanship, we want an Independent Commission. We want an independent investigation and we depend on that Commission to place the citizen's fears at ease. We need to know why there was a cease and desist order against Carter Page? What is going on with Carter Page and President 45? This comes after such disturbing interviews by Carter Page that made no sense. Why did the President say no one on his campaign team met with Russians? Now, it turns out at least five or six individuals did; Jeff Sessions, Paul Manafort, Michael Flynn, Carter Page, J.D. Gordon, and Trump's son in law, Jared Kushner; in New York, at Trump Tower. If nothing illegal took place then why wasn't this information disclosed to begin with? Instead, it was denied numerous times. They all somehow met with Russian Amb. Sergey Kislyak. Someone who Intelligence agencies refer to as a spy. This is alarming. This is no secret. The timelines of these events are alarming as well. I think that we have waited long enough. Sean Spicer can not continue to decide for the public what is important and what is not when he speaks publicly. When these questions come up. They are asked because the public wants to know. Sean Spicer does not represent the American citizens. He is not our voice and contrary to his own beliefs, it matters to us all. It is disrespectful to see Sean Spicer assume this publicly and during press briefings. He adds that public opinion doesn't matter. I remind him the public he addresses is that of the United States, the American citizens. The public the White House officials represent. We cannot stress that enough again. We do want an Independent Commission to investigate because we deem it important. We are waiting on facts, evidence, explanations. We are awaiting the truth. We are awaiting answers to these very concerning events and or ties if any to Russia regarding the President of the United States and his staff or anyone else for that matter. We would ask that this happens because somehow for some reason we are told the Director of the FBI James Comey isn't disclosing pertinent information that may or may not relate to the investigation to House Intelligence. Devin Nunes seems to be under the impression that there is nothing there to investigate also but now with so much coming to light make no assumption, the public does want an investigation. An independent one now. Why aren't all these departments unifying, uniting, for the sole purpose of clarity and that of facts, truth?The sense of integrity, the sense of country first seems to be fleeting this current Administration and it is very public. It is very clear to the public the way Government is representing itself. It is very disappointing. No one is on the same page. No one can reach bipartisanship. No one is thinking about the country and what is best for this country and it's people. Set aside "politics" long enough to deal with these issues and we urge you to unite once again for the people. We the people of the United States of America. It shouldn't be personal, it is business, big Government business. Emotions aside and we urge you to come to your senses and act accordingly. It should be a privilege to be representatives of this nation, a great nation. One of which the speaker of the House forgets, Paul Ryan. There is a complete and blatant disregard of what we the people want. You cannot continue to ignore our concerns regarding this issue. We understand not everyone in Government is acting this way. We appreciate those who continue to work in a bipartisanship manner and we appreciate and commend those representatives who don't undermine our concerns. We ask that you unite again for country. We ask for this very crucial and important Independent Investigation into this matter involving Russia, involving the President, President Trump, his aides, his taxes that now over a million citizens have petitioned for, and hopefully a conclusion can derive from the investigation and hopefully we can move forward. We the people, we all want and agree on this. Thank you very much for your time and we appreciate your services. We look forward to an update on many unanswered issues. Sincerely, U.S. American citizens.
Petition to Ivanka Trump
Ivanka Trump: Please Save the Planet!
Ivanka: ONLY YOU are in a position to influence our new president to reconsider his position on Climate Change. I encourage you to examine what the overwhelming majority of scientists are saying – that Climate Change is real, is being caused by burning fossil fuels, and that we are almost out of time to avert a cataclysmic global disaster. I then challenge you to ask your father this: “What if you are wrong about Climate Change?” The consequences for future generations are almost unimaginable! What are the consequences of turning-away from fossil fuels and making the USA an alternate-energy powerhouse? Short-term: Hundreds of thousands of new good-paying jobs for Americans. Long-Term: A livable planet for future generations. The American people are counting on you; please don’t let us down.

Save the Appalachian Regional Commission
The Appalachian Regional Commission is in danger. It is one of the many government agencies set to be eliminated if Trump's proposed budget passes. The ARC has provided everything from economic help to leadership opportunities to the Appalachian area since it was enacted under the Johnson administration in 1965. Possibly the ARC's most important aspect is the infrastructure it has given to support the area. The commission has provided water and plumbing to countless homes in the past 50 years. Of course, as time progresses, so do the people, as does the ARC. From simple plumbing to booming tourism, the commission develops with the Appalachian people and their needs. Even with the growth, this agency is still needed. Without it, the Appalachian region, my home, could begin to crawl back deep into the poverty it was famous for in the 20th century. With the recent deregulation of coal pollution into the areas water sources, the ARC is needed now more than ever to help keep the mountains clean and the people safe. Please, contact your local representative and tell them to vote NO to Trump's budget to save the Appalachian Regional Commission.
