• Impeachment: Demand Donald Trump's sworn testimony
    Throughout Donald Trump’s impeachment proceedings, multiple career public servants have come forward to testify under oath about the president’s rampant abuse of power. Meanwhile, in his tweets and rally speeches, President Trump has repeatedly denied the accusations against him -- often stretching the truth and contradicting sworn testimony and evidence to do so. Now, it’s time for the Senate to ask him directly about his conduct -- and make him swear under penalty of perjury that he’s telling the truth. Both President Nixon and President Clinton gave depositions around their impeachment inquiries. It’s now President Trump’s turn to speak to the American public -- not on Twitter, not at one of his rallies, but under oath, with legal consequences on the line. If Trump is as innocent as he says he is, that shouldn’t pose any problem. In fact, he should welcome the opportunity to exonerate himself. But if he refuses, it’ll speak volumes about whether we can trust his defense. It’s time for Senate Democrats to call Trump’s bluff. We deserve a fair, thorough impeachment trial that’s relentless in its pursuit of the truth -- but as long as Trump can avoid taking the stand, we may never know the extent of his crimes. Add your name to tell the Senate: compel the president’s sworn testimony -- and hold him accountable if he lies.

  • Vote No!!! A Carvana Fulfillment Center Should Not be In Richmond Heights
    1. The proposed building WILL substantially, adversely affect the character of the neighborhood. It is designed to be "incongruent" with its surroundings and would serve as a 24-hour glowing beacon/advertisement to passing cars on HWY-64/40 and 170. 2. The proposed building Is NOT consistent with good planning practice. Good planning practice services the community in which is located with taxes revenue and jobs. It does not negatively impact nearby business tenants or residents. This facility will provide minimal tax revenue, be minimal staffed and will cause substantial injury to the value of neighboring property. Good planning practice also meets the needs of the present, without compromising the ability of future generations to meet their own needs. This fulfilment center could serve no future purpose and, if they went out of business, would require demolition. 3. The proposed building CANNOT be operated in a manner that is not substantially detrimental to the permitted developments and uses in the district. Currently all deliveries at the Galleria occur underground, as a requirement of the original Galleria development/agreement with the community. The Carvana fulfillment center would be serviced daily, during off peak hours (early morning), by a truck with a multi-car carrier trailer. The visual noise and literal noise of the structure would adversely affect the neighboring community. 4. The proposed building CANNOT be developed and operated in a manner that is visually compatible with the permitted uses in the surrounding areas. The structure is a multi-tiered, glass tower lit with color changing LEDs. By their nature, LEDs have superior directional output. The structure would be lit to be seen far-and-wide by passing cars on HWY-64/40 and 170. The surrounding residential neighborhoods, especially Berkshire neighborhood, would be adversely affected by the 24-hour light pollution, which cannot be screened or buffered due to the significant height of the structure. The Planning and Zoning Committee of the City of Richmond Heights voted in agreement with ALL points stated above at a hearing on November 21st, 2019 and rejected this project. Proposed concessions from Carvana and their legal team to reduce the height, dim lighting on one side, or provide compensation for landscaping to neighboring properties do not make the above statements any less true. Please sign this petition to show the city council members of Richmond Heights how to vote on Monday, February 3rd at 7:30 (date postponed from 1/21).

  • Portsmouth VA Second Amendment Resolution Does Not Represent Me
    For decades we have witnessed senseless, mass killings and injuries of our fellow Americans because the gun lobbies and the people they incite have impeded efforts to prevent reasonable firearms controls from being implemented. Now that the Virginia General Assembly has a majority of members with the will and numbers to make warranted changes, an orchestrated series of protests seeks to intimidate legislators to maintain the status quo. We, the electoral majority in this commonwealth, will not stand silent. We call upon you to carry out our mandate.

  • Morgan County Wet/Dry public vote
    This is important because Morgan Co is a poor county and is sadly loosing hundreds of thousands of dollars to surrounding counties because of no alcohol sales. We can fix this issue and place restrictions and pass special taxs to fund a permanent fix for many problems in the county. Let's after many many years let the people of Morgan Co decide what they feel is in Morgan County's best interest.

  • Terminate Lingering Bans on Hemp
    The 2018 Farm Bill defined hemp as a legal agricultural product. People who maintain irrational "Reefer Madness" grudges against hemp should not be allowed to impede access to hemp. In other words, people who dislike broccoli can't prevent others from eating it. Thanks to the 2018 Farm Bill, hemp should be no different. Organizations that maintain antiquated hemp prohibitions, such as Colorado State University-Pueblo*, are not only out of compliance with federal law, but also absurdly impede access to hemp’s myriad health benefits. Anyone who wishes to consume hemp to enhance health and nutrition should not be prevented from doing so. Therefore, signatories of this petition call for the immediate termination of all existing bans on hemp across the USA. *Colorado State University-Pueblo, which ironically houses an Institute of Cannabis Research, maintains the following ignorance-inspired prohibition on hemp and/or Cannabis: “The use of marijuana on campus, even with a valid medical marijuana license, is prohibited.”

  • Mitch McConnell Must Recuse from Impeachment Trial, or be Expelled from the Senate
    We are at a critical juncture in our democratic process of the impeachment trial of President Trump, and the future of our republic hangs in the balance. We must have a fair and open trial in which the witnesses and evidence which have recently become public, and those withheld or blocked previously by the administration, are brought forward and examined by an impartial Senate, and the President provides his defense under oath. He will then either be cleared, censured, or impeached based upon the facts, and our republic will be made stronger by our re-commitment to the rule of law in these partisan times. The Senate Majority Leader has publicly committed himself AGAINST this very process by announcing publicly, “Everything I do during this, I’m coordinating with the White House counsel. There will be no difference between the president’s position and our position as to how to handle this to the extent that we can.” While Senator McConnell is entitled to his personal opinion as to the guilt or innocence of the President based upon the partial case so far, he can NOT be allowed to manage the impeachment process at the direction of the accused President. Leader McConnell, having repeatedly made his intentions to obstruct efforts for an open and fair-minded inquiry clear, must either recuse from any leadership role in the impeachment so that an impartial member may be appointed by the majority, or he must be expelled from the Senate for violation of his oath and blatant obstruction of justice and of the senate. Any impeachment trial conducted "in coordination with the White House Counsel" is a mockery of the rule of law, and if allowed, will mark the end of our Democracy. Please sign and share this petition to tell our senators that they must either persuade Senator McConnell to recuse himself from any leadership role in the impeachment trial of the president, or initiate an expulsion process against Senator McConnell for violation of his oath and for his blatant and self-confessed collaboration with the defendant to obstruct justice in the most important trial in our nation's history.
