    A petition to amend Internal Revenue Service (IRS) Notice 2014-2, the new guidance released on 25th March that announced digital currencies would be treated as property for tax purposes, has been filed on WhiteHouse.gov. Managed by the presiding presidential administration, the official website of the White House allows for the filing of public petitions on all manner of subjects, from whether Election Day should be a designated holiday to whether Alaska should secede from the US and join Russia. Petitions that cross a certain threshold of signatures then generally garner a White House response. Filed on 28th March, the new...

    Today, the Coalition of African American Pastors (CAAP) is launching a grassroots efforts to push for the impeachment of Obama’s Attorney General Eric Holder, saying the radical leftist should be impeached over “repeated lawlessness.” Rev. Bill Owens, CAAP Founder and President said in a statement that Eric Holder has no legal authority to pick and choose which laws he’s going to enforce: “The Attorney General of the United States should be impeached over his repeated lawlessness in attempting to impose same-sex marriage throughout the nation. It’s one thing to make a political argument that gay marriage should be the law,...

    A video published to YouTube shows a good number of “average” Americans eager and willing to sign a [satirical] petition that advocates a Nazi-style “Orwellian” system of government to supposedly keep the American people safe. Political prankster Mark Dice asks random San Diego beach-goers to sign a petition to dramatically increase Nazi-style “measures to keep the community safe”. Dice makes the satirical case that the government shutdown not only cut back on funding for national parks, but has also cut back on funding for the police state. Signature after signature, Americans willingly sign their name to a petition to implement...

Whereas Mr. Obama made a sincere commitment to starting a war with Syria, engaging our military in unwanted conflict, and doing so without the support of his people we resolve that Mr. Obama should deliver the Nobel Peace prize given to him in 2009 to a man of Peace, the President of Russia, Mr. Putin. Where as Mr. Putin enabled the United States to avoid an unwanted and unwarranted military action he has brought us to the "brink" of peace.

Some people want the health care law repealed, some want it fixed or expanded, and some want it implemented just as it was written. But all of us agree that the law is not ready for prime time. Already there have been politically selective waivers, exemptions, and delays of parts of this law; in fact, half of the legal deadlines have not been met.

Frank Wolf (R-Virginia) has introduced a congressional resolution, H. Res. 36, calling for the establishment of a special Congressional committee to investigate the Benghazi attack and the Obama administration’s handling of it in the weeks that followed. It’s an opportunity for a comprehensive investigation that connects all the dots, and holds people accountable. Over 120 Members of Congress have co-sponsored H. Res. 36. If your representative is not one of them, please take a moment to encourage him/her to do so.

The petition from TheTeaParty.net states, in part: “A person is supposed to be innocent until proven guilty. That’s not the case, however, in Obama’s America when he needs to manipulate the people for his own political expediency. Who can he always rely on to be his hatchet man? None other than Attorney General Eric Holder. Do you stand with us in calling...

    Maryland's new gun control law, signed in May by Gov. Martin O'Malley, has survived its first challenge. Organizers of a petition drive to get the law onto the ballot in 2014 failed to turn in any signatures by Friday night's deadline, said Steve Ackerman of the Office of the Secretary of State. A referendum would have kept the law from going into effect on Oct. 1. To get one, opponents would have had to submit roughly 18,600 signatures. While the National Rifle Association is still expected to battle the law in court, gun control groups celebrated news that the petition...

No amendment is more important for this purpose than the 2nd amendment. The 2nd amendment was written so the power could be kept with the citizenry in the face of a tyrannical government. It was well understood the Constitution acknowledged certain rights that could not be limited by government. Senator Dianne Feinstein has made it clear she does not believe in the Constitution or the inalienable rights of Americans to keep and bear arms. She is actively working to...

    Enza Ferreri Blog ^ | 9 March 2013 | Enza Ferreri
    Uganda's Pastor Umar Mulinde had the incredible courage to convert from Islam to Christianity, and even to become a Christian minister, well knowing the mortal risk he was taking. Islam prescribes the death penalty for apostates, those who leave Islam. This is how Islam has conquered peoples and maintained its position: through the sword, waging war against infidels and beheading apostates. If there were no death penalty for apostasy, there would be no Islam. This is what cleric and prominent leader of the (now the West's ally) Muslim Brotherhood Yusuf al-Qaradawi says, on video: "If they left apostasy (rida)...

Unlocking is a technique to alter the settings on your phone to use your phone on a different carrier. Doing so could place you in legal liability for up to 5 years in jail and a $500,000 fine (specifically the Librarian of Congress allowed the existing exception to lapse). This prohibition is a violation of our property rights, and it makes you wonder, if you can’t alter the settings on your phone, do you even own your own phone? The ruling...

Here’s the actual wording: “Congress shall make no law respecting an establishment of religion, or prohibiting the free exercise thereof; or abridging the freedom of speech, or of the press; or the right of the people peaceably to assemble, and to petition the Government for a redress of grievances.” Most people have a handle on the free speech, freedom of religion...

Seriously, I realize that the purpose is to require “White House response” but I can’t imagine Obama would “deport” the guy to England for attacking the second amendment when he himself is...

    <p>The Sandy Hook Elementary School shooting in Newtown, Connecticut has led the nation to launch into an increasingly bitter argument over gun control laws. As previously reported by The Inquisitr, this has led to a White House petition that demands lawmakers meet “for a bipartisan discussion resulting in a set of laws that regulates how a citizen obtains a gun.” Some have suggested moderate gun reform and others like Obama are pushing for outright gun bans. A new White House petition is saying that the United States should arm the teachers as a solution to school shootings.</p>

    We need to petition the White House to promote Armed adults to protect Children in the schools, as Israel did to stop their school shootings. We need to circumvent the old media's calling for the failed gun control policies of the past. They did not work. They will not work, and they do destroy liberty. Armed adults stop crime. Disarmed victim zones facilitate it. Creating more disarmed victims will not stop future crimes. I am not sure that a petition to the White House web page is the way to do this, but the left has already gathered 100,000 signatures...

    We request President Obama rescind his invitation to the Gangnam Style rapper PSY to perform for him at the Christmas in Washington celebration this month because of the rapper's vicious anti-American song lyrics. In 2004, PSY reportedly performed a song entitled, Dear America, that contained the following lyrics (profanity edited): "Kill those f***ing Yankees who have been torturing Iraqi captives Kill those f***ing Yankees who ordered them to torture Kill their daughters, mothers, daughters-in-law, and fathers Kill them all slowly and painfully " As commander-in-chief, how can Pres. Obama honor someone who calls for killing our troops and their families?

    WE PETITION THE OBAMA ADMINISTRATION TO: Secure resources and funding, and begin construction of a Death Star by 2016. Those who sign here petition the United States government to secure funding and resources, and begin construction on a Death Star by 2016. By focusing our defense resources into a space-superiority platform and weapon system such as a Death Star, the government can spur job creation in the fields of construction, engineering, space exploration, and more, and strengthen our national defense.
