PETITION

 

Created by B.H. on April 13, 2017

 

It’s essential for our survival as a country to maintain the strength of the navy and public awareness of the great need to grow the coast guard and navy. When we see faces and here of individuals achievements that have contributed to the advancement of their race and the services, we as a nation should honor them, by fully funding a ten million dollar grant program to various museum ship, ship associations and groups or businesses or the individual that celebrates and honors those who have done great things in their life like Lawrence (Larry) Cleveland Chambers (born June 10, 1929), the first African American to command a U.S. Navy aircraft carrier and the first African American graduate of the Naval Academy to reach flag rank & his brother Andrew, a major general in the U.S. Army.

You think you can trample on my civil rights and I won’t fight back to my last breath, man, Marion County Supervisors your own Planning Commission has no clue as to what your Code Enforcement Officer is doing, but the Sheriff does, don't you Sir? Three trailers that have been on a well maintained, beautiful farm for twenty plus years as the biggest solid waste violation resulting in confiscation of our homes and farm that’s paid for with property taxes current at all times, my gosh, what happened to a hearing? What happened to allowing me the tenant, to respond to what the county has done and continues to do? Well my response is pretty clear now don't you think?

 

I believe her in-ability to understand her full capacity of the law she ignored or the ADA will be her down fall. Her fullest intentions were to disrupt, tear down, cripple all and any persons related to the  Name HENION.  I believe she solely hates... The Disable Act that has been put in place to solely PROTECT AND SECURE THE FACT... THAT DISCRIMINATION AGAINST ANYONE DISABLED...  TOWARDS ANY UN-FORTUNATE PERSON WHO LIVES WITH AN DISABILITY.  I am going to research her life like you suggested with records tonight. I myself understand as I have suffered though my back surgery, and on-going pain. When you fell to the ground, and mom called me and informed me of the accident. I have held it in all these years. I hurt inside when I see you strapped to that chair. I always wanted to wave a magic wand and make you not have to live that way. I have watched you struggle and never could understand why this happened to my Brother. As I grew older, and came to understand more I realized the human life is what we make it. It can be amazing or we can feel sorry for ourselves and roll in self pity. I have watched you grow beyond this. Even in a chair, you continued to start up business's like the Si Mi, Trucks, and write books. The Navy Book is amazing. Hours and hours of love and time you have put in it. My Brother whom I love deeply, has written an amazing book. Wow... Looking back on my life with all its trials and tests, as you have too, it kept me so busy that my time was so focused that I wanted more time to just talk to you and spend more time with you. So I know how we can fix this. We will spend eternity with each other in the kingdom of God. This whole happening that has happen to you as well as Dad and Betty-(Mom) has been unfair and undo hardship placed upon the family in general. Dad calls me 3 times a day worried and trying to figure it all out. Which I enjoy the calls and, I can here the frustration in his voice too. Sometimes I have some hope for him, and other times nothing.  He and Betty (Mom) is and has had stress placed on them to the fullest. Shame on Laura who wears the power pants and seems to lack understanding and fairness.  She acts like a Generic Modified Chemical with no Conscience.  Darkness is surrounding our world and God is our hope. We can't give up. As for the Media, I am going to email them your WEBSITE AND AVIDATIVE. Daddy gave me the list of whom you sent all your letters too. Wow and fantastic. I will forward it too.

I love you

Your Sister Judy Henion Allen

 

Efforts to oppose unlawful discriminatory practices - 6/19/2017

 

There are many issues facing severely disabled persons, discrimination can be in many forums. Today I’m reporting, you decide. The web links I provide house the entire story and evidences, yet it is my intention to purposely document before you the most current activities on you’re public site so every severely disabled person in Oregon may be notified of an Oregon Law that discriminates against severely disabled persons. Furthermore, not everyone will click on a web link on facebook sites and if I’m going to allege things before the U. S. District Court, Eugene, Oregon and the public, you can believe I’ll drag with me my current activities, especially since I’m declaring through a law suit filed yesterday by my attorney, that entire state within every county is not in compliance of federal laws relating to discrimination against severely disabled persons. I‘m giving you the opportunity to publicly respond because I know you will respond to issues that have substance. I begin with my letter to Governor Kate Brown, a personal friend to my uncle, Loyd Henion, Democrat Delegate, so you can believe she knows of my story and case, with comments from me, posted on her facebook.

 

Attorney General of America Sessions

 

Your the top law official in America and I thought the Governor of Oregon and her Attorney General were the top law officials of Oregon, but last year when they were notified of discrimination practices of Marion County and an unlawful and discriminative state law violating ADA, neither an investigation or CONCERN was gifted, not even liberally.

 

I’m thinking it must not be the duty of the Governor or Attorney General of Oregon to uphold the ADA in its state.

 

A fair and balanced law would take into consideration civil liberties and not discriminate against severely disabled person(s) or disabled veterans.

 

I feel abandoned, full of despair, homeless, but most of all, raped of my civil liberties. To know you’re not wanted because your severely disabled is the most awful feeling I’ve ever had.

 

It makes me cry inside, but my astonishment of such lack of human compassion makes me want to fight.

 

I served a country that has no ears to the cry of discrimination, and while discrimination is apparent in all walks of life, some how being called a gimp and being treated like one is so dissatisfying, that one does everything they can to bring attention to the plight of those discriminated against.

 

And still, the media cares not. Will the top law official care?

 

Questions I asked the President on his facebook page:

 

Mr. President - If counties in Oregon receive federal funding to accommodate through services or programs severely disabled and they don’t do it, and if they violate the ADA, should federal funds be allocated to Oregon Counties?

 

Mr. President – If a state in the Union has a law that discriminates against severely disabled persons, isn’t it the duty of the Attorney General of America to sound off?

 

Mr. President, while my personal civil rights have been denied me and discrimination on going because I’m disabled, allegations easily proven, my federal law suit will set forth the evidences of my claims, yet a unlawful and discriminative law must be dealt with, other wise as a severely disabled person(s), we have no civil rights in Oregon.

 

I hope and pray you ask your Attorney General to look into Oregon’s discriminative law that discriminates against severely disabled persons.

PRESIDENT TRUMP'S ACCOMPLISHMENTS the first month
 

Trump nominated Judge Neil M. Gorsuch to the Supreme Court
 

Trump signed an Executive Order instructing Federal agencies to "minimize the burden" of Obamacare
 

Trump signed an Executive Order to improve security by enabling the construction of a wall on the southern border
 

Trump signed an Executive Order to protect Americans by limiting admission of refugees from several terrorist hotspots
 

Trump signed an Executive Order to make sure Federal immigration laws are enforced and that Americans' tax dollars do not go to sanctuary cities
 

Under Trump's leadership, the Department of the Treasury sanctioned 25 entities and individuals involved in Iran's ballistic missile program
 

Trump has required that for every new Federal regulation, two existing regulations by eliminated
 

Trump directed the Commerce Department to streamline Federal permitting processes for domestic manufacturing
 

Trump signed an Executive Order expediting the environmental review and approval process for infrastructure projects
 

Trump signed a Presidential Memorandum to clear roadblocks to construction of the Keystone XL Pipeline and the Dakota Access Pipeline
 

Trump signed legislation to block the so-called "Stream Protection Rule" from causing further harm to the coal industry
 

Trump signed an Executive Order establishing new ethics commitments for all Executive branch appointees, putting in place a five-year lobbying ban and a permanent ban on lobbying for foreign governments
 

Trump put in place a hiring freeze for Federal civilian employees

 

Fellow Conservative:

 

President Trump's first budget was released this morning and it includes some much-needed cuts in federal spending.

 

The budget calls for spending reductions in virtually every agency except for Defense, Homeland Security, and Veterans Affairs.

 

And it specifically calls for the elimination of a number of small, independent agencies, including:

 

•Corporation for Public Broadcasting

•Legal Services Corporation

•National Endowment for the Arts

•National Endowment for the Humanities, and

•Overseas Private Investment Corporation

You can find the White House budget summary here.

 

While this budget is only a blueprint that must be approved by Congress and while it only covers annual discretionary spending, its proposed reductions are a major step in the right direction.

 

If we are ever going to balance the budget and create real economic growth, we must cut federal spending.

 

We expect Democrats in Congress to oppose these cuts along with many big-spending Republicans.

 

In fact, a senior aide to GOP leadership on Capitol Hill said the President's budget is "a joke... we've learned not to listen to anything he says or does. We're on our own."

 

One of the biggest areas of disagreement with the GOP establishment is the president's plan to cut foreign aid, which includes cuts to funding for the United Nations and the World Bank.

 

Senator Lindsey Graham (R-SC) said Trump's proposed cuts to foreign aid would be "dead on arrival" in the Senate, and Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell (R-KY) said he opposes the cuts.

 

They are wrong and should either be forced to change their position or answer to their constituents. They either stand with Donald Trump on this or with Nancy Pelosi.

 

With your help, we will work to enact these and other spending cuts to help balance the budget, fund true priorities, and encourage economic growth that benefits all Americans.

 

As the appropriations process begins, we will keep you informed of key developments and let you know which members you can call to move things in the right direction.

 

Sincerely,

 

Ken Cuccinelli II

GENERALNOTES

 

1. All years referenced for economic data are calendar years unless otherwise noted. All years referenced for budget data are fiscal years unless otherwise noted.

At the time of this writing, only one  of the  annual appropriations bills for 2017 had been  enacted (the Military Construction and Veterans Affairs Appropriations Act), as well as the Further Continuing and Security Assistance Appropriations Act, which provided 2017 discretionary funding for certain Department of Defense accounts; therefore, the programs provided for in the remaining 2017 annual appropriations bills  were  operating under a continuing resolution (Public Law 114-223, division C, as amended).  For these programs, references to 2017 spending in the text and tables reflect the levels provided by the continuing resolution.

America First, A Budget Blueprint to Make America Great Again

AMERICA FIRST

 

Beginning a New Chapter of American Greatness

 

A MESSAGE TO THE CONGRESS OF THE UNITED STATES:

 

The American people elected me to fight for their priorities in Washington, D.C. and deliver on my promise to protect our Nation. I fully intend to keep that promise.

 

One of the most important ways the Federal Government sets priorities is through the Budget of the United States.

 

Accordingly, I submit to the Congress this Budget Blueprint to reprioritize Federal spending so that it advances the safety and security of the American people.

 

Our aim is to meet the simple, but crucial demand of our citizens—a Government that puts the needs of its own people first.  When we do that, we will set free the dreams of every American, and we will begin a new chapter of American greatness.

 

A budget that puts America first must make the safety of our people its number one priority—because without safety, there can be no prosperity.

 

That is why I have instructed my Budget Director, Mick Mulvaney, to craft a budget that emphasizes national security and public safety.  That work is reflected in this Budget Blueprint.  To keep Americans safe, we have made tough choices that have been put off for too long.  But we have also made necessary investments that are long overdue.

 

My Budget Blueprint for 2018:

 

•   provides for one of the largest increases in defense spending without increasing the debt;

 

•   significantly increases the budget for immigration enforcement at the Department of Justice and the Department of Homeland Security;

 

•   includes additional resources for a wall on the southern border with Mexico,  immigration judges, expanded detention capacity, U.S. Attorneys, U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement, and  Border Patrol;

 

•   increases funding to address violent crime and reduces opioid abuse; and

 

•   puts America first by keeping more of America’s hard-earned tax dollars here at home.

 

The core of my first Budget Blueprint is the rebuilding of our Nation’s military without adding to our Federal deficit.  There is a $54 billion increase in defense spending in 2018 that is offset by targeted reductions elsewhere. This defense funding is vital to rebuilding and preparing our Armed Forces for the future.

 

We must ensure that our courageous servicemen and women have the tools they need to deter war, and when called upon to fight, do only one thing: Win.

 

In these dangerous times, this public safety and national security Budget Blueprint is a message to the world—a message of American strength, security, and resolve.

 

This Budget Blueprint follows through on my promise to focus on keeping Americans safe, keeping terrorists out of our country, and putting violent offenders behind bars.

 

The defense and public safety spending increases in this Budget Blueprint are offset and paid for by finding greater savings and efficiencies across the Federal Government. Our Budget Blueprint insists on $54 billion in reductions to non-Defense programs.  We are going to do more with less, and make the Government lean and accountable to the people.

 

This includes deep cuts to foreign aid.  It is time to prioritize the security and well-being of Americans, and to ask the rest of the world to step up and pay its fair share.

 

Many other Government agencies and departments will also experience cuts.  These cuts are sensible and rational.  Every agency and department will be driven to achieve greater efficiency and to eliminate wasteful spending in carrying out their honorable service to the American people.

 

I look forward to engaging the Congress and enacting this America First Budget.

 

 

Donald J. Trump

Text of a Letter from the President to the Speaker of the House of Representatives

 

March 16, 2017

 

Dear Mr. Speaker:

 

I ask the Congress to consider the enclosed appropriations request for Fiscal Year (FY) 2017.  The request includes an additional $30 billion for the Department of Defense (DOD) to rebuild the U.S. Armed Forces and accelerate the campaign to defeat the Islamic State of Iraq and Syria (ISIS), and an additional $3 billion for the Department of Homeland Security (DHS) for urgent border protection activities.

 

This appropriations request would provide $24.9 billion in the DOD base budget for urgent warfighting readiness needs and to begin a sustained effort to rebuild the U.S. Armed Forces.  The request seeks to address critical budget shortfalls in personnel, training, maintenance, equipment, munitions, modernization, and infrastructure investment.  It represents a critical first step in investing in a larger, more ready, and more capable military force.

 

The request also includes $5.1 billion in the Overseas Contingency Operations budget for DOD to accelerate the campaign to defeat ISIS and support Operation Freedom's Sentinel in Afghanistan.  This request would enable DOD to pursue a comprehensive strategy to end the threat ISIS poses to the United States.

 

In addition, this appropriations request would provide an additional $3 billion for DHS implementation of my executive orders on border security and immigration enforcement.  The request would fund efforts to plan, design, and construct a physical wall along the southern border, and make other critical investments in tactical border infrastructure and technology.  The request also proposes funding to increase immigration detention capacity, which is necessary to ensure the removal of illegal aliens from the United States.  Finally, the request funds new recruiting capacity at DHS so that it may hire additional immigration law enforcement officers and agents.

 

In conjunction with this request, I recommend that the Congress enact non-defense discretionary reductions of $18 billion in FY 2017, which would fully offset the amounts proposed for DHS and would offset half of the amounts proposed for DOD.

 

The details of this proposal are set forth in the enclosed letter from the Director of the Office of Management and Budget.

 

 

Sincerely,

 

DONALD J. TRUMP
