    No-Trump song: SPREAD please


    Presidential elections are going on. And mr.Trump is showing his worst face in order to get votes by the haters, racists and extreme people who could support him.


    Music is a powerful tool to gather people and unite for a cause. And the cause that urges now is, most of all: STOP Donald Trump. That’s why I’m making a song aimed to be an anthem to mobilize the people to vote against him. Mr.Trump instigates conflict on the country to gain consensus for him, and this extremely risky for the whole world. I’m not an influencer, my voice is a grain of sand, but if any renowned person or organisation would help to spread this song, I hope to get some result for the cause.


    The song is based on the tune of “Hey Joe”, as I think that a very famous song can be heard easily than a new one by the audience.


    So, messrs,

    my appeal to You is to give voice to this song.


    You can use it as a signature tune on media, events, rallies, sponsorships and everything else.


    I grant the right to distribute the song with my new lyrics to anybody, in any form, for free. I can provide the original audio/video file(s) on request, for any need.


    Link to the song (lyrics included):

    My name is Fareed Singh. I am a Sikh and I was hoping maybe you would be able to help me. I am 22 years old and am enlisting in the U.S Army. There have been several “delays” or complications with my paperwork for a request to receive a waiver for a religious accommodation to wear my beard and turban. Part of me wants to give them the benefit of the doubt and say “Well maybe they are working on it, and Covid is making things go slower…” but part of me also feels this is discrimination in the guise of evasive excuses, especially given how fast all other paperwork and waivers were approved during this same Pandemic that is supposedly “slowing everything down”, but really only slowed it down when it came to my religious request.


    They said it would take 6-8 weeks for the paperwork to be approved, and the 8 weeks were up about three weeks ago and I still have not heard back from them. I’ve been making calls myself to people higher up to see what the status is. They either direct me to call someone else or don’t give me a straight answer, or when I ask who else I can talk to, they give me an excuse and say I can’t call anyone else about the issue and just have to wait.


    I have passed all exams they have given me, physical, drug, cognitive, linguistic. I am fit to leave and serve. All other paperwork went smoothly and even other medical waivers were approved very quickly (less than a week, all occurring during this Corona-virus Pandemic) but when it comes to my request for a religious accommodation, they have taken months, went past the prospective date, have not contacted me, and leave me going in circles when I try to find or call whoever is in charge so I may ask them the status of my request. I have called the Chaplain, the Battalion, talked to other recruiters in the local office. One told me my paperwork was in Las Vegas, another told me it was in Kentucky. It seems either very dishonest or very disorganized. When it came to my medical/optical waiver, it was approved within 24 hours and I got a call. This religious waiver however, has taken longer than I was originally told and with absolutely no communication on their end about the progress or what is going on at all and I am beginning to feel like I am being discriminate against for my religion, though the armed forces claims that it does not discriminate based on these identities.


    I really don’t know what other officials to turn to and a friend suggested for me to contact you, so here I am. I would appreciate very greatly any insight, advice or active engagement in this matter. Thank you.

    Honorable Jim Costa:


    Hello. If I were in your shoes this is what I would be thinking about and this is an outline of an alternative plan(s), for your consideration.


    First, Housing. I would propose something like the Landlord Tenant Covid19 Relief Package. Briefly it would mean every tenant and or homeowner who has fallen behind in rent or mortgage payments will get some Government relief for up to 6 months (or more) on unpaid rent or unpaid mortgage payments. Essentially, each household would apply for this relief through their local Housing Authority (each CA County should have one). You write the criteria. If you are unemployed for reasons related to the pandemic you apply for rental or mortgage payment assistance. If you qualify, the local Housing Authority sends your landlord a monetary voucher for unpaid rent (like 3 months in the arears) and will agree to pay rent/mortgage payments for 3 months in the future (or more depending on your limits). Hopefully, people can get their lives back on track by then. Temporary relief like this, helps property owners avoid expensive evictions, gets money into their (landlord) pockets, and allows some relief for renters and homeowners.


    The expectation that the extra $600 per week of unemployment insurance benefits will help alleviate this issue (unpaid rent), in my opinion, is not realistic. If I were a tenant or mortgage holder and out of work, I would be using this money to buy groceries and pay some bills (e.g. cell phones, car payments, utilities, health insurance premiums, etc.…)


    Second, I would recommend another piece of legislation which I have dubbed the 2020 Food and Beverage Pandemic Protection Act. This piece of legislation is to provide restaurant owners with a grant that should be sufficient to allow them to reopen for full-service dining once the pandemic has been controlled and/or once there is a vaccine that protects Americans.


    As all of you are aware, from local news outlets, many restaurants throughout the country have closed permanently. If they reopen, this grant could provide the necessary stimulus needed so they become fully operational and hire former staff or new staff.


    If your feeling is that businesses will reopen once the pandemic is over, I would guess that a small percentage will have the resources to do that, but not all. This should be a grant for businesses that existed during the pandemic that are looking to reopen but need a financial boost to get started. As mentioned earlier this should be a grant. No requirement to repay the grant so long as they stay open for whatever period the legislature deems appropriate. Additionally, just like renters and mortgage holders there could be some provision that would pay their rent for a certain number of months, even if they have had to close, to try and keep the business afloat.


    Third, the claim that people will not return to work if they are making more on unemployment than working is ludicrous. Think about it. Restaurants and bars throughout this Country have closed, permanently, because of the pandemic. As you know, some reopened for full service and then did an about face and closed as their communities and/or their business had a surge of Coronavirus/Covid 19 positive tests by employees and/or customers. Servers, as an example, are out of a job. Furthermore, there are travel restrictions in many parts of the USA and abroad. A lack of tourists in CA means that hotels need less staff, not to mention local restrictions in place for those travelling into those areas. This in and of itself bolsters the claim that the need for the extra $600 per week of pandemic unemployment insurance relief is needed. I will not disagree that there are some shysters that will try to take advantage of this money. But what about the honest, diligent, worker that is trying to make ends meet and finds themselves unemployed because of the pandemic. One can only hope that the government agencies have sufficient resources to devote to fraud detection to minimize any shysters looking to make a quick buck.


    In my lifetime (I am 69 years) I have not witnessed a more desperate period for business owners, and workers and students. Currently, there is no comprehensive, universal plan. I do know that if I was a parent of school age children, I would do what I could to have them experience virtual learning, based on the current science. Once we have a vaccine I will more than likely be fine with the kids going back to classroom instruction.


    Unfortunately, I have not heard any of our leaders explain the significant cost a family incurs for a Covid19 related hospitalization. Let us assume for the moment that the cost is in the thousands of dollars. If this can be mitigated by a nationwide order to wear a mask how much of that cost can be avoided?


    I am but a small fish in a big ocean, but this is my outlook. I worked for over 20 years as a civil rights investigator for a California State law enforcement agency (Dept. of Fair Employment & Housing). I also have experience as a Human Resources Representative in the private sector. Brainstorming is nothing new to me based on my past experiences. After all, we’re in this together.


    I also have about 13 years of experience with the CA Employment Development Dept. I worked in Santa Maria when one day the Piper Airplane manufacturing plant decided to close between the swing shift and the graveyard shift. I remember driving to work and wondering why the parking lot was full and why there were so many cars on the side streets. I had to park several blocks away. Once I arrived at the office, I learned that Piper Aircraft decided to cease operations after the swing shift went home and locked the gate with no advance notice to the employees. We had hundreds of people coming into the office to file for their unemployment benefits and our normal way of handling these claims did not meet the need. We had a stand-up huddle with our management team and within a few minutes we had a plan. We would give everyone an appointment and the forms to complete and return at a later time. We made an announcement over the intercom and moved forward with our plan. It worked. This allowed us to process a lot of claims, with limited resources, but within the required time.


    Today, I have to say that the Employment Development Dept. (EDD) in California has failed California employees and employers. Whatever plan they had has not worked. I can understand a backlog, but I don’t see that there is a plan to address the backlog in a timely manner. At the beginning of August 2020, the CA Governor said the backlog would be addressed by September. I do not know about you, but this is not acceptable. Californians are hurting and they need their benefits.


    Our family is a CA Household Employer, and we have 2 care providers that care for an elderly relative. I laid off both care providers at the end of March 2020 so they could shelter in place with their own families. I returned them to work on June 7, 2020. One of our care providers filed for unemployment benefits about a week after she was laid off and as of the date of this writing (8/17/2020) she has not received any benefits or any notice of a determination on her claim. This is not acceptable.


    I am posting on your campaign site as your Congressional email did not work.


    Thank you for all you do. Stay safe and stay healthy. Although you are my Congressional Representative I am not a registered Democrat or Republican. I value my vote and have voted for the candidate(s) that have the best outlook for Californians.

    Dear Congressional Candidate Costa,


    CARA will soon celebrate our 17th Anniversary. Because 2020 is such an important election year, we want to give CARA members throughout the State an opportunity to attend a local event where they can learn about important election issues, meet the candidates running for key offices, sign up for our Seniors Vote 2020 Project, and of course celebrate our work during the year and set priorities for 2021.


    We would like to invite you to be part of a Candidate/Election Forum we are sponsoring for seniors and people with disabilities in Fresno/Kern Counties on Wednesday, September 23rd from 10am-12:30pm. The Candidate Forum portion of this event will be held from 10:30 – 11:30am. This meeting is being held virtually via ZOOM (we will send you the link one week before the event), and we are expecting at least 100 participants.


    We are inviting the top two candidates running various state, federal, and in some cases, county wide races. The format will be as follows:

     Each candidate will have 8 minutes to speak. We have included a few questions at the end of this email that are important to seniors and CARA members. We would like you to include your responses to these questions in your remarks.

     We will have a Q & A period after all the candidates have spoken. CARA will moderate this session and call on folks who raise their hand using the zoom instructions.


    Since our Founding Convention in November 2003, the California Alliance for Retired Americans (CARA) has formed a broad-based coalition of over 275 affiliated organizations with a combined membership of more than one million older Californians. As these numbers continue to grow, CARA is establishing a powerful grassroots organization that is united and able to come together quickly and energetically to speak out on issues of concern to older adults. CARA does not endorse candidates, but we educate our members on the positions that candidates take and on their voting records. We have CARA Action Teams in 17 regions of the State.


    Please let us know if you can participate in this important CARA Regional Convention/Candidate Forum. You can call our Executive Director, Jodi Reid at 415-515-2156 if you have questions and to confirm your participation. Thank you for your consideration of this request. We will contact you in the next week or so to confirm your receipt of this letter.


    Sincerely,


    Nan Brasmer, CARA President

    Honorable congressmen,

    We declare once again that on July 12, 2020, the Armenian armed forces carried out

    another military provocation in the direction of the Tovuz region of Azerbaijan. Armenia

    does not comply with resolutions and requirements of the UN and other international

    organizations on the immediate and unconditional withdrawal of Armenian troops from

    the occupied territories of Azerbaijan. It is unacceptable that, in the midst of all conflicts

    and wars stopped due to a global pandemic, Armenia carried out a treacherous military

    provocation on the state border with Azerbaijan and spread misinformation on social

    networks. It is very disturbing that the misinformation spread by Armenia is

    sometimes accepted as reality.

    We demand the honorable congressmen to make clear the information and act in

    accordance with the norms of international law before intervention.

    Honorables membres du Congrès,

    Nous déclarons à nouveau que le 12 juillet 2020, les forces armées arméniennes ont

    procédé à une autre provocation militaire en direction de la région de Tovuz

    d’Azerbaïdjan. L’Arménie ne se conforme pas aux résolutions et exigences de l’ONU et

    d’autres organisations internationales sur le retrait immédiat et inconditionnel des

    troupes arméniennes des territoires occupés de l’Azerbaïdjan. Il est inacceptable qu’au

    milieu de tous les conflits et guerres arrêtés en raison d’une pandémie mondiale,

    l’Arménie ait mené une provocation militaire perfide à la frontière de l’État avec

    l’Azerbaïdjan et répandu de la désinformation sur les réseaux sociaux. Il est très

    inquiétant que la désinformation diffusée par l’Arménie soit parfois acceptée comme

    une réalité.

    Nous demandons aux honorables membres du Congrès d’apprendre

    les renseignements le plus détaillé et d’agir conformément aux normes du droit

    international avant l’intervention.

The pledge is simply a commitment to stay free of corruption. By agreeing to this pledge, you are showing your constituents that your votes are your own, not your donors.

    Dear Honorable Jim Costa,


    As a member of the California Association of Professional Scientists (CAPS), I urgently seek your support for federal funding to stabilize California’s budget during the COVID-19 Pandemic.


    CAPS represents 4,400 State Scientists who perform essential work to protect public health, the environment, the agricultural food supply, and California’s natural resources. I work on [fill in the blank].


    Yet California – like every state and local government – confronts an enormous drain on its resources amidst an abrupt, unprecedented loss of revenue triggered by the worst public health crisis in 100 years and the worst economic downturn in 90 years.


    The COVID-19 Pandemic has increased costs to address the public health and economic crisis, while at the same time dramatically decreasing available tax revenue. As a result, California Governor Gavin Newsom has proposed slashing funds for vital programs and state services to close an anticipated $54 billion budget gap. The pressure on the budget will not yield, as California’s peak fire season is just a few weeks away.


    This historic moment presents an epic test of effective governance that our nation must not fail. There is very little time for Congress to act, however, because California and many other states are finalizing their budgets for the upcoming fiscal year.


    That’s why I am asking respected leaders like you in the U.S. Congress to support a $1 Trillion federal investment to protect critical services that state and local governments provide for our communities.


    We encourage you to put working families’ health, safety and financial security first by passing the HEROES Act or similar legislation (e.g., SMART Act).


    Thank you for your support of public workers. If you have questions or wish to discuss this matter further, please call CAPS at (916) 441-2629 or email caps@capsscientists.org.


    Respectfully,

    Heather Rodriguez

The direct support workforce who work with our clients are on the front lines of the COVID-19  providing necessary services. As the state starts to reopen, people with Intellectual and developmental disabilities will continue to rely on our services to keep them safe and healthy. Any cuts would  be devastating to our clients and will result in individuals with intellectual and developmental disabilities loosing access to critical services.


     


    I would appreciate if  Congressmen Costa would get back to me on this important issue. If you would like to contact me please do so at 559-270-2117


     


    Thank you for your time.

    Hi,


    This is Melissa and I am a experienced photographer.


    I was surprised, to put it nicely, when I came across my images at your website. If you use a copyrighted image without my permission, you must be aware that you could be sued by the owner.


    It’s illicitly to use stolen images and it’s so filthy!


    Check out this document with the links to my images you used at www.jimcosta.com and my earlier publications to get evidence of my copyrights.


    Download it now and check this out for yourself:

    If you don’t delete the images mentioned in the document above within the next several days, I’ll write a complaint on you to your hosting provider stating that my copyrights have been infringed and I am trying to protect my intellectual property.


    And if it doesn’t work, you may be pretty damn sure I am going to report and sue you! And I will not bother myself to let you know of it in advance.

    I would like to understand why the Governor is looking to reduce state employees pay by 10% while he is still handling tax dollars out to illegal immigrants and homeless. As a state employee myself working in a correctional facility it takes every bit of self motivation I have to continue going to work everyday. The prime reason I continue employment for the state is pay and pension. The job I and my fellow coworkers do is highly stressful and we receive no gratitude for doing it. I was raised in an impoverished city and grew up being taught how to use the government system for personal gain. I decided very young I was going to be a productive member of society rather than take advantage of a broken system. I work hard for my wage and it bothers me to know while I receive 10% less for my hard work, there are others benefiting from my sacrifice that do not deserve it. Please advocate for working Californians and look at ending entitlements to illegal immigrants and those who choose not to work. Thank you Jarrod James

    Deborah Tavares is a conspiracy promoter who lives in Sonoma County, California. She has thousands of videos posted on YouTube (under various names) and has millions of viewers and followers world wide.


    Tavares, a former California land developer, claims that all environmental regulation in the United States is the direct result of “Agenda 21”, a 1992 United Nations proposal to protect some of the Earth’s remaining environment and some of the Earth’s remaining biodiversity.


    But, Tavares claims that the real purpose of Agenda 21 (and therefore all environmental regulation) is to expand the wilderness into areas already occupied by humans, so as to incrementally drive us out of our rural and suburban homes and into increasingly-smaller, increasingly-concentrated, tightly-packed, over-populated “Kill Cities” in furtherance of the planned extinction of mankind. Thus, Tavares contends that environmental regulation will cause the extinction of mankind (exactly the opposite of what environmental regulation will actually do).


    Tavares’ motive in making this absurd claim is to cause Americans to oppose all environmental regulation in the mistaken belief that they are saving their rural and suburban homes (and their very lives) in the process.


    To support her claims, Tavares actually forges documents, alters and changes words and images on documents and intentionally mischaracterizes what the documents actually are and what they actually say.
    So, I thought that you should know.

    Please stop sending me “tips” and “updates” on the corona virus. This information is widely available from any number of news outlets. I do not need for you to summarize what I have already learned. What I do need is for you to show some support for our president and the hard work that his task force, and all of the people who are helping to keep us safe, healthy and fed are doing. Please show some real integrity by voicing your support for what the White House has done, press our governor to support the very reasonable guidelines that his task force has developed for reopening our economy. They are giving us hope, and the Democratic leadership in our state looks petty in comparison. Pelosi giving Trump an “F” grade is mocking all of the federal workers who are trying so hard.

    If you cannot publicly acknowledge and give voice to our disgust with the obvious politically motivated B.S. that Pelosi and Schumer are shoveling out to try to disrupt EVERYTHING our president is doing, you should be ashamed of yourself and and do not deserve to hold the office WE had GIVEN you!

    I have lived in the Central Valley of California all my life and have actually voted for you on occasion, but I am ashamed of the leadership in Sacramento for making this tragedy political.

    Step up or step away!
