  • The Constitution Makes Clear: Insurrectionists are BARRED from holding future office
    The coordinated and violent attack on the United States Capitol in an effort to prevent Congress from certifying the presidential vote on January 6, 2021 was an insurrection against the United States. Section 3 of the Fourteenth Amendment makes clear that anyone who has previously sworn an oath to uphold the Constitution, and then engages in “insurrection or rebellion” against the United States (or provides “aid or comfort” to its enemies) is permanently disqualified from holding future public office. Publicly available evidence establishes that Rep. Paul Gosar helped facilitate the insurrection, before, during, and after January 6, 2021. Not only was he among a handful of Congress members who expressed vocal support for the insurrection as it was happening , but, according to news reports, Gosar went so far as to offer organizers of the pre-attack demonstration a “blanket pardon” in connection with unrelated criminal investigations, encouraging what would no doubt be an illegal act of violence. In the weeks leading up to January 6, Rep. Marjorie Taylor Greene publicly stated that violence might be necessary to keep Trump in power, exhorted her followers not to allow Congress to transfer power peacefully, and, the night before the attack, called the date “our 1776 moment” (a codeword used by violent extremists to refer to an attack on government buildings). Greene has since attempted to defend the violence on January 6 as justified by the Declaration of Independence, calling convicted participants in the insurrections “political prisoners of war”. In December 2022, she bragged that “if” she had organized the attack, “we would have won. Not to mention, it would’ve been armed.” Rep. Lauren Boebert echoed Greene’s coded sentiments during the insurrection, tweeting “Today is 1776.” She was billed as a speaker for the pre-attack Capitol protest, though she did not speak. Three days prior to the insurrection, Boebert released an ad featuring herself walking through federal buildings while brandishing a firearm, pledging to carry a handgun in the Capitol despite DC laws banning open carry. In addition, two Jan. 6th organizers told Rolling Stone of “dozens” of planning meetings with Boebert and several other Congress members in the days leading up to the insurrection. Free Speech For People has spearheaded the nationwide legal effort to hold insurrectionists accountable for their role in the violent assault on American democracy that took place on January 6th, 2021. Yet, despite a wealth of evidence indicting Gosar, Boebert and Greene for insurrectionist activity, Secretaries of State and chief election officials have thus far failed to follow the mandate of Section 3 of the Fourteenth Amendment. The task has now fallen to American voters to urge our Representatives to do their duty and challenge the qualifications of Gosar, Greene, and Boebert under Section 3 of the Fourteenth Amendment.

  • No Justice for Dimock. Make It Right, Governor-Elect Shapiro.
    The headline repeated by media outlets across the country at the end of last month was that Coterra (formerly Cabot) the driller responsible for contaminating the water supplies of people in and around Dimock, Pennsylvania, 14 years ago pleaded no contest to criminal charges and agreed to pay more than $16 million for a water line to provide water to affected residents and cover their water bills for 75 years. Justice for Dimock... FINALLY, we thought. Wrong. The Associated Press is now reporting that the Department of Environmental Protection "quietly lifted its long-term moratorium on gas production in Dimock" the very same day Coterra (Cabot) pleaded no contest. The AP reports, "At the news conference, Shapiro punted a reporter’s question about whether Coterra would be permitted to resume drilling in the moratorium area, pointing out the administration of Democratic Gov. Tom Wolf was still in charge." Not for long, Governor-Elect Shapiro. As Attorney General, Shapiro came to know how badly the people of Dimock have suffered. As Governor, he needs to make right what the state has gotten so wrong and permanently ban all drilling and fracking activities in Dimock. Read the AP's story here - https://apnews.com/article/business-pennsylvania-state-government-climate-and-environment-politics-778fffd63ac1db58ab7df86fe1958ffa Demand Justice for Dimock.

  • Parents/benefactors of UC students demand a tuition refund for each day missed from UAW strike.
    The purpose of a strike is to put pressure on the employer. However, as it stands, the UC Board of Regents has nothing to lose. Parents/benefactors pay the same tuition regardless of how much time and learning students lose if a strike occurs. Administrators continue to earn their comfortable salaries even if classrooms are empty. It's a public system, therefore students can't really "take their business elsewhere." The colleges, therefore, have a monopoly. Students suffer the most, yet they are not part of the conversation. They lose learning. They lose time. Parents/benefactors lose money. We have lost money. We now demand a refund. We, the parents/benefactors, want students to be in school. We want students to learn. We are paying for it. If the UC Board of Regents does not consider the educational and employment prospects of its students motive enough to reach an agreement, then perhaps a justifiable hit to the UC bottom line will. #WePayToLearn #FairUCNow

  • Governor-Elect Shapiro, Prioritize Banning Road Spreading of Drilling Waste
    “Pennfield has obtained a Co-Product status instead of Waste with our brine. What this means is you don’t have to report spreading and it can be spread all year round. I know this is hard to believe because D.E.P. doesn’t make anything easy, but it’s true…,” the company told townships that were potential customers. Titusville Oil & Gas Associates’ president wrote, “I do not currently supply any oil and gas produced water to these entities or any other entities for the purpose of treating dirt and gravel roads in Forest County and have not done so since the Department of Environmental Protection - Bureau of Waste Management (BWM) issued letters to multiple operators in the business of spreading produced water on dirt roads that their co-product determinations were largely inadequate.” The company reported spreading 1004.01 barrels of produced water in Forest County in 2021. Tachoir Resources, a company that entered 278 records of road spreading a total of nearly 600 barrels of drilling waste in 2021 says it subcontracted the hauling to another company, Anderson Energy Services. Anderson also reported road spreading of waste, 240 barrels of it, for the first time since 2017, told regulators in August, “Per our conversation we have not been disposing brine for spreading for well over a year and are not in the future.” Additionally, that same company routinely lists the same amount of waste spread for each of its entries in a county. It might explain why their client did the same. How much of its own waste and its client’s it actually spread is unknown. These are among the discoveries the Better Path Coalition made in our latest review of records we obtained from the Pennsylvania Department of Environmental Protection’s Bureau of Waste Management in response to a Right-to-Know request. The records round out our collection of documents pertaining to the use of a loophole conventional drillers found in BWM’s Coproduct Determination program to "legally" continue the practice of spreading toxic, radioactive waste on unpaved roads in Pennsylvania after the Office of Oil & Gas Management put a moratorium on the practice. Collectively, the documents reveal that not one conventional driller reporting road spreading of waste from 2018 to the present submitted a Coproduct Determination report that met the regulatory requirements of the program. Road spreading of unconventional drilling wastewater was banned in 2016. Since then, studies have confirmed that conventional drilling wastewater is harmful to human health and the environment and that it's no better than rainwater at suppressing dust. Meanwhile, conventional drillers have done everything they can to circumvent the 2018 moratorium. It's past time for an outright ban on road spreading of ALL drilling waste. Governor-Elect Shapiro must make it a priority to bring an end to this dangerous practice.

  • Reject Leasing Serenity Ridge Common Areas
    Why is this important? It seems that communities are being led to believe that fracking will be a golden goose while the real economic, human, and environmental impacts are being downplayed using tactics similar to the tobacco industry. Consider who would be impacted by the immediate and long-term adverse effects. We are concerned for our health, our reservoir, and our community and refuse to be the next Hinkley, Dimock, or Flint. We want clean water. We want clean air.

  • Save student loan debt cancellation!
    In August, the Biden administration announced an historic student debt cancellation policy, which would transform the lives of tens of millions of borrowers across the country. Despite President Biden possessing the authority to cancel student debt as per the HEROES Act, passed by Congress in 2003, right-wing MAGA Republicans have filed numerous lawsuits challenging the legality of student debt cancellation. Now, a Trump-appointed federal judge has officially blocked the cancellation program, and the Biden administration has been forced to stop accepting cancellation applications. While the case is currently being appealed to a higher court, student loan debt cancellation appears to be in jeopardy. In trying to kill this program, Republicans and their right-wing minions are trying to deny critical relief for tens of millions of families that have suffered under the crushing weight of student loan debt. This is absolutely unfathomable, and that’s why we’re demanding that they drop all litigation regarding student debt cancellation.
