Texas Secession Petition Gets 90,025+ Signers, 33+ Other States Start Secede Petitions

Secede Petitions

Now that Election Day 2012 is done and Obama has won a second term, those that voted for Mitt Romney have had time to mourn their candidate’s failed attempt to become president and get back to business as usual. Whatever business as usual may mean, it is become obvious that many do not want that and have had enough of how the government is handling things. This has become clear on the White House website as many states across the country have filed petitions to secede from the union in order to form new state governments.

Most of the states that wanted to formally withdraw from the union were supporters for Mitt Romney’s election bid; however, a few swing states as well as some deep blue Northeast states have representation. Alabama, one of the states seeking to secede, filed their petition saying, “We petition the Obama Administration to peacefully grant the State of Alabama to withdraw from the United States of America and create its own new government.” Texas sent in their petition, which it suggests to the current administration, “Texans neither want or need you,” says: “We petition the Obama Administration to peacefully grant the State of Texas to withdraw from the United States of America and create its own NEW government.

The US continues to suffer economic difficulties stemming from the federal government’s neglect to reform domestic and foreign spending. The citizens of the US suffer from blatant abuses of their rights such as the NDAA, the TSA, etc. Given that the state of Texas maintains a balanced budget and is the 15th largest economy in the world, it is practically feasible for Texas to withdraw from the union, and to do so would protect it’s citizens’ standard of living and re-secure their rights and liberties in accordance with the original ideas and beliefs of our founding fathers which are no longer being reflected by the federal government.”

While Alabama and Texas may have used different wording in their secede petitions, the following text is consistent in most of the states filed so far: As the founding fathers of the United States of America made clear in the Declaration of Independence in 1776: “When in the Course of human events, it becomes necessary for one people to dissolve the political bands which have connected them with another, and to assume among the powers of the earth, the separate and equal station to which the Laws of Nature and of Nature’s God entitle them, a decent respect to the opinions of mankind requires that they should declare the causes which impel them to the separation.” “…Governments are instituted among Men, deriving their just powers from the consent of the governed, that whenever any Form of Government becomes destructive of these ends, it is the Right of the People to alter or abolish it, and institute new Government…”

According to the “We the People” program that appears on the White House website, 25,000 signatures must be present in order for a petition to be reviewed. Obama’s administration explains that, “If a petition meets the signature threshold, it will be reviewed by the Administration and we will issue a response.” With that said, Texas Secession Petition has over 90,025 and Louisiana has over 27,000 signatures. In looking at the petitions filed so far, it is unclear if this is a nod to dissatisfaction that some conservatives think the totals will soon match proportions of the Civil War, or not. One thing that is clear is the utter contempt that many obviously feel towards the Obama administration with this petition drive, which looks like it is on its’ way to reach all fifty states.

All the states that have petitioned and the number of signatures they have obtained, at this time, are:

1. West Virginia 282
2. Nebraska 933
3. Pennsylvania 1,449; Pennsylvania 6,881
4. Alaska 1,963 Kansas 1,928

U.S. Secession Petitions Now Collecting Signatures in 34 States

The sting of President Obama’s re-election has driven some of most disillusioned to the White House’s We the People petition forum with a steep demand: That their state be allowed to secede from the union. And the mini movement is now going national.

Disgruntled voters in 34 states have filed the petitions, mainly in states Obama lost but also in several he won, including Florida and Nevada.

But it’s the petition from Texas that has garnered the most attention: With 60,000 names attached, it’s well past the 25,000-signature threshold that usually warrants an official response from the Obama administration. Texas Gov. Rick Perry has weighed in, saying he doesn’t support the petition, even though he erroneously suggested in 2009 that Texas can leave the union if it chooses.

Not to be outdone, Obama supporters filed a counter petition with We the People, calling for secession supporters to be exiled from the United States.

    To go against the King of any country is treason. This is treason to sign a petition to secede. The king has the power to exile or punish anyone who signs this petition. So it’s not a good idea to sign this petition. You must understand that this country is no longer like it was during the Bush administration and you must live with these facts. It might be communist now, but there is nothing wrong with a communist nation! It provides for it’s citizens.

    @ John Markes – You really need to take a step back and think about why people are signing the petition for their state to secede. Yes, some probably do want their state to secede (crazy!) but most are just trying to send a message to the government and the president. I did sign the petition, and no I do not want the USA to split apart, but for me its a message saying that we aren’t happy with the government and the more they make us unhappy the more we will fight back. So for you to call me and anyone else not patriots, cowards, traitors ,and idiots for just trying to send a message…you are idiot for not taking a second to think about why some people may be signing it and you are the coward to sit at you computer and say those things about people that are fighting for this great country. We are the people of this country and we are trying to fight to bring this country back to its greatness and away from the big corrupt government.

    Why don’t you get off your a** and be a Patriot of this country and help us take it back!!!! If you don’t want to help us fight for our freedom you can leave this great country.

    And before you even think that I’m saying you should sign the petition, you are dead wrong. Don’t sign it…I could care less if you did or did not sign it. But there are many other ways you can help us fight for our country. Get up, away from you computer, and stand for something!!!! I am a PATRIOT!!!!

    Any informed citizen would understand these successions are not about one man winning the presidency, but of many other issues. The main issue is we are tired of the governments continuing failure and ruining our country beyond repair. To say we should be exiled or call us traitors is blatant ignorance as we are very patriotic to our COUNTRY and to the American PEOPLE. What we are not supportive of is corporate greed, banking corruption, and the sham the has become Government which the only thing they can seem to govern is CNN and major television networks with ridiculous and heavily biased or just simply make belief opinions, statements, or claims meant to prove their efficiency. Thankfully they haven’t obtained total censorship and there are still many intelligent Americans who aren’t falling for the same old tricks. We are not sheep, we think for ourselves, and refuse to give up this country without a fight. They will try to paint us as conspiracy theorists or lunatics or whatever derogatory words they can come up with, but we are intelligent human beings who remember the foundation this great nation was founded upon. One nation under God, with liberty and justice for ALL, not fortune 500 company’s, or super PAC’s, or 1% income brackets,but for ALL. Federal Government has failed to represent or be the voice for America as a whole, it has forgotten us and ignored us, but a people should never be afraid of its government and we Will make the government afraid of its people if they continue to take away our freedom and our rights and destroy our hope of prosperity.

    Seceding is the only way to correct this problem. The difference between the intelligent and the entitled is just too great to continue on in this manner.

    I support every state that wants to secede and they have the right to do that Mr. Markes. If you don’t like it, perhaps you should move to a state that wants to be a part of Obamanation. 40 states do not want to be a part of it – so far.

    I guess we’re looking at another civil war, though I doubt anyone will fight on the side of Obama. I know for sure our military won’t.

      “40 states do not want to be a part of it – so far.”

      No, there are people in every state that don’t want to be part of it, and they don’t speak for the state as a whole. Don’t think that just because a few people have their shorts in a bunch, they are the status quo. Just like you could find people in every state who want to secede, you can find people in every state who want to legalize incest and paedophilia . Doesn’t mean that every state wants them to be legal.

    Anyone wanting to secede because 1 man became president they don’t like are not Patriots of the United States of America. They are cowards and traitors. Those idiots are free to leave our country, but they don’t get to take any of our country with them.

17-year old Boy in India has 232 Teeth Extracted

232 Teeth Extracted

A 17-year old boy in India had 232 teeth extracted in a seven-hour long surgery.

Ashik Gavai sought medical help for swelling on the right side of his lower jaw, something he had been suffering from for 18 months. He travelled to the city from his village after local doctors failed to identify the cause of the problem.

He was finally referred to the city’s JJ hospital, where they found he was suffering from a condition known as complex odontoma, said head of dentistry Sunanda Dhivare-Palwankar.

A series of tests and examinations suggested a rare abnormal growth affecting the second molar on the lower right side of his jaw.

“Initially, it was not very clear what it could be and so we decided to go in for surgery,” said Dhivare-Palwankar. As the surgery progressed, the team had tiny teeth popping out of that abnormal molar, which was measuring around 3.5X2 cm, or the size of a large marble.

“We operated on Monday and it took us almost seven hours. We thought it may be a simple surgery but once we opened it there were multiple pearl-like teeth inside the jaw bone,” she said. “At the final count, we had a total of 232 small pearls, all independently developing as teeth, coming out of that lone molar.”

There was also another hard, rock-like formation inside the affected tooth in Ashik’s mouth which could not be removed by a dentist’s drill. “We had to resort to the age-old, now outdated, ‘chisel-mallet’ procedure to break down that hard formation as it was putting immense pressures on the jaw bone and surrounding healthy teeth,” she explained.

ENT surgeon Dr Vandana Thorawade said during the surgery, they ensured that the patient’s face symmetry did not change. “The bone around which the tumour was attached had become brittle and thin. That was the only complication. We could not let that bone break and so we slowly removed one tooth after another,” Thorawade added.

The dentist described the condition as a ‘developmental anomaly’, which had affected that particular molar at its formation stage in Ashik’s younger age, probably in the post-milk teeth years.

Top 10 Conspiracy Stories Of The Day

There is always some crazy stuff hanging out there in the dark corners of the Internet. I use to always find it fascinating to look at the Inquirer or The Globe journals in the supermarket isle to see what crazy things people were trying to make people aware of. Sometimes I found that a few of those stories were the real thing. We’ve crawled into the corners of the Internet and plucked out the most popular links, stories and videos that people are talking about that are either shocking or conspiracy.

10. Passenger with Ebola symptoms removed from plane in Orlando – a passenger that was on flight 718 for Southwest Airlines on October 6th, 2014 was isolated and removed from the aircraft. The plane was flying from Houston to Orlando. The symptoms of the passenger fit the list of Ebola symptoms and protocol from the CDC were followed. The passenger had admitted they traveled to West Africa in the end of August 2014.

9. Doctor in Hazmat suit makes a point about Ebola and makes it CNN Broadcast – Dr. Gilbert Mobley wore a hazmat suit and strolled through the world’s busiest airport to make a point about Ebola. The Doctor is an Emergency Trauma physician from Springfield, MO. The Hazmat suit had written on the back of it, “The CDC is lying.” The Dr. claims airports are not screening passengers because he was only asked if he was bringing back tobacco or alcohol from Guatamala.

8. Eli Waller who died from enterovirus 68 went to bed with pink eye and died in his sleep – A 4 year old toddler was said to have went to bed with pink eye in a town 20 miles west of Atlantic City and died a few hours later. When the boy was rushed to the hospital they found his cause of death was Enterovirus 68 which is ravaging the United States in almost every single state. The pace at which the Enterovirus68 had moved is what has stunned doctors and parents.

7. ‘Conspiracy Theory’ Episode from 2010 Never Aired Again After Government Gag Order!! – Shared on the Facebook page of Ian McKinney is a video that shows an episode of ‘Conspiracy Theory’ that aired on November 12th, 2010. It was aired only once and never was never shown again. The post states, “This episode was aired ONCE and pulled by the federal government! Anyone notice how perfectly this is matching up with the current Ebola pandemic?! This is scary!Proof the government had this episode pulled: http://www.networkworld.com/article/2228186/microsoft-subnet/conspiracy-theory–with-teeth–government-allegedly-forced-trutv-to-yank-fema-camps.html

6. Mysterious outbreak of hemorrhagic fever syndrome in Venezuela kills ten – People are certain what killed these people but some suspect VHF (Venezuelan hemmorrhagic fever). The tests have not been completed but others feel it isn’t VHF. One doctor who attended the Medical Association of Aragua state to discuss the situation said, ““This is an emergency,” he said, “we do not know what we are facing and we need to know the causes in order to provide appropriate treatment, to prevent the collapse of the patient’s organs, and also to set up epidemiological surveillance.”

5. Swings being removed from School Districts to ensure safety of children – In Richland, Washington the Richland School District has made the decision to phase out swings out of it’s playground to reduce pressure from insurance companies, injuries from kids and reduce the 200,000 children that go to the emergency room a year. Swings are just too dangerous for American children in schools in 2014.

4. What was once a conspiracy theory has now been leaked as fact by places like the WSJ – The Fed’s “Stealth Bailout” of Foreign Banks Goes Mainstream – In June of 2011 ZeroHedge.com reported that, “The Fed’s $600 Billion Stealth Bailout of Foreign Banks Continues At The Expense of the Domestic Economy, Or Explaining Where All the QE2 Money Went.” Some called it the European bailout or foreign bank injections. The Wall Street Journal’s Jon Hisenrath said: Fed Rate Policies Aid Foreign Banks: Lenders Pocket a Spread by Borrowing Cheaply, Parking Funds At Central Bank.

3. Goodbye Gun Control: The $1,200 Machine for 3D-Printing Guns Has Sold Out in 36 Hours – It seems that a man named Cody Wilson launched a CNC Milling Machine that was designed to 3d Print the aluminum body of an AR-15 Rifle at home with the click of a button with no skills or expertise to get the job done. The guns would have no regulation or serial numbers on them and the machine only costs $1,200 to print as many of the guns as you want. In the first 24 hours 175 of the machines were sold and continued to sell them until Cody Wilson cut off order due to demand.

2. Another Case of Ebola (the second one) has hit a hospital in Madrid, Spain – Another nurse who specialized at the Madrid hospital has been suspected to have been infected with the Ebola virus. The first nurse was confirmed earlier today and was placed in isolation after she treated a Spanish priest Manuel Gracia Viejo whom died on September 25th.

Video of Ghost walking outside of police station in New Mexico

Ghost walking around police station in NM

You may not believe in ghosts and really, not many people do. However, when you see a ghost right before you eyes it makes you question what you’re seeing and just what if ghosts may be real. This was the case for a ghost that was caught on a CCTV camera outside a police station in Espanola, New Mexico.

The surveillance system is to catch criminals and make sure no one is vandelizing police vehicles or equipment but just the other night Karl Romero of Espanola Police Department saw something weird on the cameras. It was just like any average night late on a Saturday when Karl saw something moving across the cameras which he thought was some kind of bug, all of sudden he saw legs on the weird image moving around. Mr Romero told news stations, “At first I thought it was a podilla, a fly or a month, then I saw the legs and it was a human. But not a real human. No. A ghost.”

There were old cages that were used for transport that are locked down that a normal person can’t get get through, but somehow this human-like image moves in and out of them with ease as the ghostly shadow goes deeper in the police lot. The Detectives at the Espanola Department looked into the image and said there is no type of glitch or weird lighting that would have made the image appear.

As the news stations interviewed the shocked police employees they found out this wasn’t the only time ghosts were found around the station. Detective Romero told reporters, “A lot of officers have seen certain things. Some officers have felt someone breathing down their necks as they’re working in the briefing room.” People wanted to know if the police station was on an ancient burial ground and records show it’s not. Nonetheless the ghost stories in this town keep popping up and now the video of the ghost walking around outside this police station is proof for the people that may have doubted what cops were seeing.
