• Port Wentworth City Council: Take Councilmen Barbee & Stephens to Court to get our money back
    Councilman Barbee and Councilman Stephens cost the city taxpayers tens of thousands of dollars when they failed to show up for several council meetings in a row. By not showing up to meetings, city council could not conduct city business and official meetings were not able to be held. Both Councilmen intentionally boycotted official meetings for political reasons. The taxpayers should not be required to pay the costs of their political agenda's.

  • OPPOSE H​.​R. 6666, the COVID–19 Testing, Reaching, And Contacting Everyone (TRACE) Act
    H.R. 6666, otherwise known as the COVID-19 Testing, Reaching, and Contacting Everyone (TRACE) Act, was introduced and referred to the House Committee on Energy and Commerce on 5/1/2020. This bill is sponsored by Representative Bobby Rush (D) of Illinois District 1. The bill has 59 cosponsors, 58 Democrats and 1 Republican. Summary H.R. 6666 provides 100 billion dollars this year and unlimited federal funding in future years to create and operate a massive and likely unconstitutional surveillance, testing, and tracing enforcement system under the guise of “protecting” Americans against coronavirus. H.R. 6666 is a federal funding bill. It proposes to create a surveillance infrastructure that can be used by the federal government, as well as local and state governments and private businesses, to require medical testing and tracking of all citizens in violation of fundamental civil liberties as set forth in the Bill of Rights, which include the first 10 amendments to the U.S. Constitution designed to protect individual rights and limit the power of the government. H.R. 6666 lacks safeguards and conditions related to funding of the proposed surveillance operation to prevent it from being applied to intrusive programs mandating testing and surveillance without an individual’s voluntary consent. If this legislation is passed by Congress and enacted into law, it could lead to denial of an individual’s right to appear in public spaces and travel; the right to employment and education or participation in government-funded services, and the right to receive care in a government funded hospital or other any other medical facility. H.R. 6666 specifically allows for funded entities to home quarantine a person against their will, even while they are healthy. Once a vaccine is available, the testing and tracing results potentially could be used to force individuals to be injected with a COVID-19 vaccine against their will. According to a Press Release from the sponsor Congressman Bobby L. Rush, “Reopening our economy and getting back to normal will be all but impossible if we do not step up our testing efforts and implement robust and widespread contact tracing,” said Rep. Rush. “Until we have a vaccine to defeat this dreaded disease, contact tracing in order to understand the full breadth and depth of the spread of this virus is the only way we will be able to get out from under this.” The Devil is in the Details H.R. 6666 would allow The Secretary of Health and Human Services (HHS), acting through the Director of the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), to award federal grants to eligible entities to conduct diagnostic testing for COVID–19, to trace and monitor the contacts of infected individuals, and to support the quarantine of such contacts. Through the use of mobile health units, as necessary, individuals would be tested and provided with services related to testing and quarantine at their residences. The amount of money appropriated for fiscal year 2020 would be $100,000,000,000 (one hundred billion dollars) and more money may be appropriated by Congress as necessary for any subsequent fiscal year during which the emergency period continues. A grant recipient may use the federal grant funds, in support of the above referenced activities to hire, train, compensate, and pay the expenses of individuals; and to purchase personal protective equipment and other supplies. Priority will be given to applicants in “hot spots” and medically underserved communities and to entities that hire residents of the community where the activity will occur. Hot spots are defined as a geographic area where the rate of infection with the virus that causes COVID–19 exceeds the national average. Medically underserved communities are communities given that term in section 799B of the Public Health Service Act (42 U.S.C. 295p). Entities eligible for the grant money are defined as a federally qualified health center, school-based clinic, disproportionate share hospital, academic medical center, nonprofit organization, institute of higher education, high school, and any other type of entity as determined by the Secretary of HHS. H.R. 6666 Does Not Guarantee Privacy Section 2 (e) of H.R. 6666 is entitled “Federal Privacy Requirements”, but it does little to protect privacy. It states that “Nothing in this section shall be construed to supersede any Federal privacy or confidentiality requirement, including the regulations promulgated under section 264(c) of the Health Insurance Portability and Accountability Act of 1996 (Public Law 104–191; 110 Stat. 2033) and section 543 of the Public Health Service Act (42 U.S.C. 290dd–2). In actuality, H.R. 6666 offers few privacy protections for Americans who will be surveilled and tested without their consent under programs funded with this grant. In fact, Americans can expect their privacy to be violated under TRACE funded programs. That is because the Health Insurance Portability and Accountability Act of 1996 (HIPAA) 45 CFR 164.512(b)(1)(i) has always allowed disclosure of private health information to government officials and other government approved entities including foreign governments without the knowledge or consent of the individual for the purpose of conducting public health surveillance, investigations or interventions. Bill of Rights Cannot Be Suspended During A “Public Health Crisis” The Bill of Rights in the U.S. Constitution cannot be set aside by the federal government or state governments during pandemics or other public health emergencies. In The United States Statement of Interest in Support of Plaintiffs, filed by the Department of Justice (DOJ) in a case last month in which church goers attending a drive-in sermon were issued citations for violating an executive order in Mississippi, the DOJ stated;

  • Stop 50,000 republicans from patrolling voters in key states!
    I strongly believe, based on strong evidence, that our current administration is intent on destroying our constitutional rights, our freedom, and the civil rights of people of color and immigrants. Allowing 50,000 Republicans to patrol voting stations in key states and turn away anyone they suspect might be suspicious, coupled with a widespread propaganda campaign about Democrats as agents of election theft, is outrageous. This is a blatant attempt at voter suppression to tilt the election in their favor. This will mainly affect voters of color and immigrants, and probably anyone who "appears" to be a Democrat or liberal to them. It is likely that the patrollers will fabricate any excuse to turn voters away and make it impossible for them to contest it. This action is further proof that the Trump administration and his GOP supporters will stop at NOTHING to make sure he wins a second term. It confirms the entrenched corruption of this administration and its attempt to dismantle democracy, civil rights, and the right to vote unless the vote is in their favor. We cannot afford a second Trump term; it will be a catastrophic event for this country and the world.

  • Inmate Dies of COVID19 Locked in Shower by Prison Guards
    I am the mother of one of Tiffany's 4 grandchildren. My child is 4 years old currently, and was 1 years old the last time she seen her grandmother alive. Tiffany died on April 29th, 2020 in Edna Mahan Correctional Facility. Tiffany was experiencing symptoms of COVID19 for two weeks and was placed in solitary confinement amid her suffering. She was locked in a shower, and complained of shortness of breath as she passed out multiple times before any prison staff came to check on her. The prison staff tried to revive her unconscious body multiple times, but she was dead before anyone let her out of the shower. Tiffany was a loving grandmother to all of her grandchildren. My daughter will never get to meet her grandmother again. Tiffany got through her prison sentence by holding on to hope that she would be able to see her grandchildren again. I am asking for your help to petition the NJDOC Commissioner and Governor to help bring real prison reform to our NJ state prison systems. There are countless inmates who are afraid for their lives due to witnessing the death of Tiffany Mofield. If we can get this petition signed by as many people as we can, together we can shed light on the horrific prison conditions our friends and loved ones face. Commissioner Hicks and Governor Murphy should provide transparency to our citizens of the State of NJ so that we are confident in our prison system's practices regarding inmate fair access to health care and humane treatment. We need a prompt and thorough investigation into Tiffany's death and her medical treatment up until she died. Help the family of Tiffany Mofield get Justice and bring change to our prison systems.

  • Let's Abolish Capital Punishment in the U.S.A!
    Capital punishment is an issue in the United States of America. There are many states that have currently legalized and retained the right to execute criminals for their crimes. Capital punishment is a cruel and unusual punishment, it is more costly than imprisonment, and many innocent lives are being taken because of it. Capital punishment should be abolished in the United States of America. First, capital punishment should not be legal because it is a cruel and unusual punishment. There are many different methods of execution, but not a single one is better than the other. All are heinous. Cruel and unusual punishments consist of lethal injection, hanging, gas chamber, electric chair, firing squad, and beheading. It is understandable that criminals deserve the worst for the horrific crimes that they commit, but death is not the answer.  Next, capital punishment shouldn't be allowed because it is more expensive than a prison sentence. All the lawyers, judges, and other personnel put more hours into preparing, trying, and reviewing the issues, given that a life is at stake. In addition to the people who are participating in the trial, the equipment required to perform the execution is also very costly. If a criminal just got sentenced to jail, it would be a lot less expensive and the person would still be alive. Lastly, capital punishment should be abolished because many innocent people are being killed. The death penalty carries the inherent risk of executing an innocent person. Since 1973, more than 165 people who had been wrongly convicted and sentenced to death in the U.S. have been exonerated. Capital punishment should no longer exist because many people who are guilty of nothing have been killed. Unless it is absolutely certain that the person who is thought to be guilty actually is, nobody should be executed. In conclusion, capital punishment is a big problem and it only leads to more problems. Death should not be permitted. People deserve a second chance in life and they can't use their second chance if they are dead. We are on a mission to abolish capital punishment. So, who's with us?

  • Stop Mitch McConnell from handing Bill Barr more spying powers
    Time is running out to stop McConnell from handing Bill Barr, fresh off his shocking attack on the rule of law by dropping the case against Michael Flynn, new spying powers. Some of the worst parts of the Patriot Act expired last month after we fought to make sure Congress couldn't renew them without major reforms. Now McConnell is trying to jam through not just a renewal of the Patriot Act, bad enough as it is -- he wants to create huge new powers that would let Trump's henchmen conduct more spying on all of us, and on their enemies, without needing a warrant. Meanwhile, civil libertarians are rallying behind a bipartisan amendment that would restrict the government's spying powers. This is a critical moment to stop the McConnell, Barr, and the rest of the Trump Administration from abusing their power. Will you add your name now?
