Honor USCP Officer Eugene Goodman with the Medal of Freedom
(Photo Credit: Ashley Gilbertson)On Wednesday, January 6th, 2021, USPC Officer Eugene Goodman faced down a mob of angry rioters advancing in the US Capitol building. Despite his warnings, rioters advanced on the outnumbered officer. He retreated to the 2nd floor landing and called in his position to fellow officers to alert them to the growing threat. Officer Goodman noted that there were no visible guards at the Senate chamber doors. At the moment that the lead rioter also saw the open door, Officer Goodman placed himself in the path to direct harm and made physical contact with the rioter, provoking a response. The rioter took the bait and lead his followers after Officer Goodman, away from the Senate doors. Inside the Senate, the evacuation was not complete. If the rioters had breached that door, they would've found themselves face-to-face with Senate leaders. Bloodshed was a stark possibility. Instead, the rioters pursued Officer Goodman down another hall and into a larger vestibule where Capitol police backup was waiting to reinforce him. The incident was defused without injury and Senate leaders were able to safely evacuate. Officer Eugene Goodman recognized a critical moment where the lives of others were at stake. He courageously risked himself to divert rioters and exemplifies the courage an bravery that is the hallmark of Capitol law enforcement. In a very difficult time, his character shone through. He is an American hero. My fellow petitioners and I are calling on President Joe Biden to recognize his courage and his long career of defending the United Stated by awarding him the highest civilian honor, the Medal of Freedom!
Petition to All federal, state, and local elected officials in the United States
Only Patriotism Can End The Big Lie
Elected government officials are busy upholding the right to protest while condemning and repudiating the violence displayed at the country’s capitol. Not addressed is the Big Lie that the election was massively fraudulent, the root of the Capitol Hill violence on January 6th. The Big Lie was pre-announced by President Trump, repeated by him on the night of the Nov. 3rd election, and enabled by many of these same government officials who now remain silent on the matter. This Big Lie is what drove both the protest and the violence and, without addressing it, we are likely destined to argue about it for the duration of Biden’s presidency. Our destiny may even include yet another insurrection, an unwelcome holdover from Donald Trump’s presidency. Unless elected officials do something, the Big Lie, the thing that Trump has unleashed on us all, will likely stand as an ongoing threat to our nation. It’s one thing for this to be debated by citizens and the media - it is everyone’s right to express their opinion. But, because we narrowly avoided a coup, it’s quite another thing for elected government officials, sworn to uphold the Constitution, to perpetuate Trump’s fabricated claims. At this point, elected officials who stay silent or play cute with the Big Lie likely enable insurrection by others. More than 60 judges, including many appointed by Republicans, rejected various versions of the Big Lie. Trump's own lawyers were careful to make no claims of fraud in court because they had no evidence and did not want to risk being disbarred. There is no evidence -- the claim of massive election fraud in the 2020 Presidential election was and is a Big Lie. Any elected official who continues to further Trump's Big Lie is deliberately and knowingly eroding the trust Americans place in the most basic of democratic expressions - our collective vote. Continuing this falsehood after blood has been shed and our Capitol desecrated, is a reprehensible betrayal of the oath taken by every elected official to protect and defend the Constitution. Trump and the nearly 150 members of Congress who persist in this fiction must be held accountable for the damage done not only to the Capitol building but to the perceived legitimacy of our government. Intruders in the Capitol building can be expelled. Members of Congress can hold their peers who supported and aided the intruders to account using a variety of negative consequences. It’s harder to expel a lie that is firmly planted in our collective consciousness. Because Trump’s Big Lie so jeopardized our democracy, it is a duty for our elected political leaders -- leaders of our democracy -- to go on record as leaders standing for the truth and upholding our Constitution. As President John F. Kennedy reminded us, real patriots ask what they can do for their country. Right now our country needs all elected officials from the federal to the state and local level to unequivocally condemn and repudiate the Big Lie that capped Trump's Presidency. If they cannot stand up to this lie by denouncing it, they are leaving the door open to another insurrection. If condemnation and repudiation does not happen, elected officials are ignoring their patriotic duty and perpetuating a misguided insurrection. It’s time for elected officials at all levels of the government, local, state and federal, to show their constituents that they are patriots who serve their country when it needs them the most. Be a patriot. Please sign here, if you agree that the Big Lie needs to end, now! I hereby recognize that President Trump exercised all of his legal opportunities to challenge the outcome of the 2020 election and his claims of fraud were rejected by judges in more than 60 state and federal courts, including the Supreme Court. I pledge to condemn, repudiate, and challenge any perpetuation of the Big Lie that inspired thousands of my fellow citizens to storm the Capitol and endanger Congress. I will also send this pledge to all of my elected leaders and demand that they, too, sign this pledge.
Petition to President Joe Biden
Create a US Department of Peace and appoint Marianne Williamson to lead it.
As Americans we recognize our collective responsibility for the current state of our country. We have increasingly bloodied each other in every possible way: intellectually, emotionally, spiritually, and physically. We are at a cross-roads, what feels like an all-time low, a place where we must choose something different. If we don’t, the consequences will be dire. If we are going to turn this around, if we are truly going to heal, unify, and move forward together we must open up to a new way of doing things, a new mind-set. The idea of a US Department of Peace has actually been around for a long time, since 1973 when Founding Father Benjamin Rush wrote an essay on the idea and it’s been brought up time and again through the years. It is time for this idea to become reality. We need to make peace a priority and we must start domestically. And to be successful we will need the right kind of leadership, leadership that's not afraid to look in the mirror, will listen to all sides with an open heart and mind, and will not be afraid to use the word “love.” Marianne Williamson has demonstrated not only a deep understanding of the multiple, extremely complex problems facing our country and our planet, she has offered unique, thoughtful solutions. And though she may be new to politics she has studied peace, true peace, her entire life and is poised to lead a Department of Peace like no other. The silver lining to the most difficult times is that they bring opportunities for great change, beautiful change. If ever there were a time to open up to new approaches, choose something different, it is now. With concern but also optimism for the future of this country and the belief that together we really can do anything, we are asking you to create a US Department of Peace and to appoint Marianne Williamson to lead it.
Petition to Mitch McConnell, Nancy Pelosi, Charles E. Schumer
IMPEACHED TWICE: IT’S TIME TO REMOVE 45!
This campaign began on January 6, 2021 after I couldn’t stomach the insurrection at the Capitol, I had to do something, I dipped a toe before, but now I’m all in. 45 crossed a line even I didn’t think he was capable of, I started the petition to implore Mike Pence to use the 25th Amendment and remove this man before he causes more harm. On January 12, 2021, Mike Pence made a decision to stand by the man who’s words and actions caused an attempted coup, damaged the hall of Democracy and left 6 dead. Pence’s cowardice will only come back to bite him, but for now let’s tell 45 - “You’re Fired!”. After the domestic terrorist attack on the US Capitol building on January 6, 2021, spurned on by Donald Trump and Rudolph Guiliani’s inciting words at a rally earlier that day. Trump directed his followers to march to the Capitol, taking to heart Rudy’s “Trial by Combat” comment. The aftermath of the damage from the breach is palpable, 6 lives lost, many, many Americans feeling like the appointed leader of our government is more than unfit to serve, but actually a criminal. He must be removed immediately! Today, we saw the worst of Americans and it will not be forgotten. The attack took the lives of 4 civilians, multiple law enforcement members injured and one Capitol Police Officer Dead. It didn’t need to happen, our democracy did not need this challenge. Please help in signing this petition, so we can send a message to Mike Pence and the leaders in Washington to let them know that we are disgusted and appalled by these actions by “Donald Trump’s Domestic Terrorists”. Nothing less than removal of his authority and presidential privilege will do at this point, the one person elected to protect the country above all others, very, very literally let the foxes into the henhouse and caused damage and destruction, leaving 6 people dead.

Petition to U.S. Senate
Expel Sen. Josh Hawley
Josh Hawley has clearly forgot being an elected official, is a privilege! He has proven he's no longer worthy of this privilege to be an elected official working on behalf of the people. Over and over again.... *He has made decisions based on his personal feelings, not the interest of the people who elected him. *He helped drive the horrible January 6th insurrection with his careless rhetoric. *He has opposed our democratic process, which is the process that allows there to even be a US Senate. The same US Senate that provides him a current role as a sitting senator. *He has knowingly lied to people that trust him. Not in their best interest, not because he cares how they feel, not because he cares what they truly believe, but only because he wants their support for his future personal political goals. *Now he is purposely leaving us vulnerable by opposing confirmation and consideration of vital leadership roles simply because he is upset. This action makes no sense when the nominee he is opposing is more than qualified. His baseless vow to object is even more ridiculous because, regardless of his objection the nominee Alejandro will still be confirmed. The only difference is with his objection it will be a longer process. The part that's most selfish is he knows his objection will not change anything, it will only make the process take a longer amount of time. Time that leaves the American people vulnerable to terrorist and other attacks, domestic or otherwise. So why do such a thing? Well, he has no viable explanation! So we can all conclude Josh Hawley just has no regards for us, the american people, or our best interest anymore. His agenda only consist of actions that satisfy his own personal feelings. A person like that has no business in any leadership role when they don't possess the ability to place the best interest of people, above their own personal feelings.
Petition to House Committee On Ethics
Remove Yvette Harrell as NM Representative
On behalf of The State of New Mexico Congressional District 2, I am writing to request that the House Committee on Ethics put forth the motion to Censure or Expel Representative Yvette Harrell as a member of the United States Congress. For what reasons should the Senate expel a member? The Constitution Article 1 Section 5 simply states that each house of Congress may "punish its Members for disorderly Behavior, and, with the Concurrence of two thirds, expel a Member." When the Senate expelled William Blount in 1797 by a nearly unanimous vote, it had reason to believe he was involved in a conspiracy against the United States. In late 1807 John Smith, who had previously been indicted for his participation in “Burr’s Conspiracy” only narrowly retained his seat. He rightfully and justifiably retired his political career as a result of these proceedings. Under House Rule X, the Committee is authorized to enforce standards of conduct for members, officers and employees; to investigate alleged violations of any law, rule or regulation; and to make recommendations to the House for further action. Actions speak louder than words and Although Harrell verbally “condemned” the violence that took place on Capitol Hill 1/6/21 she made it clear, by continuing to object to the electoral college vote and by voting against the impeachment of Donald Trump, a fascist provocateur of violence- she is moving forward with a self-centered agenda. Those involved in the attacks of January 6th and those who continue to show support for the rhetoric that lead to such events must be held accountable lest they continue to fuel the marginalized group so clearly resolved to resort to violence and harm our democratically elected officials. It is becoming more difficult to reach out to Harrell and so we the constituents of New Mexico District 2 ask you to take action against Harrell and ensure that all voices in New Mexico are heard. Sincerely, Citizens of New Mexico, U.S.A
