Amazon has a privately run, for-profit surveillance network—and they’re giving police departments VIP access to the footage collected.
Over 1,330 local law enforcement agencies across the country have partnered with Amazon’s Ring home surveillance company. Police promote Ring products. In exchange, Amazon provides police departments a seamless and easy way to request and store footage from thousands of residents throughout the city, allowing for warrantless surveillance.
This gives law enforcement unprecedented access to identify and monitor people without oversight or judicial review. As protesters take to the streets in response to police killing George Floyd, police departments can request and store footage from Ring users en masse with no probable cause.
Once the footage is received, it can be used to target and even arrest protesters exercising their First Amendment rights. This same footage can also be used to conduct facial recognition searches to find other protesters and shared with other agencies like ICE.
These surveillance partnerships erode privacy rights and civil liberties, especially for black and brown communities. Already at the center of the protests, black and brown people are more likely to be surveilled by law enforcement and Amazon Ring’s Neighbor App—only adding to the concerns of increased criminalization and over-policing.
But mayors and city officials have the power to stop police from entering into these partnerships, which is why we are calling on local elected officials to ban and stop these deceptive partnerships.
Sign the petition to tell your mayor and elected city officials: “Stop police from entering into for-profit surveillance partnerships with Amazon Ring. These partnerships undermine our democratic process and allow police to access surveillance footage to arrest protesters; they should be banned.”

Zoom is not encrypting calls for free accounts with end to end encryption so they can provide law enforcement and the Federal Bureau of Investigation with content from those calls.
As protesters demonstrate in the wake of the murder of George Floyd, law enforcement has deployed a wide range of surveillance tools to monitor and track protesters－including facial recognition software and contact tracing technology. They are working to get information from every source possible to disrupt and even arrest people involved with the protests.
While many companies are declaring solidarity with the protests, Zoom is volunteering to hand out information from private calls to police and the FBI. Not only are protesters using Zoom to coordinate peaceful demonstrations but people are using the platform to have conversations with loved ones, therapists and doctors. These are sensitive, confidential conversations that need to be protected.
To add insult to injury, Zoom is not willing to handover data for all their users. No, only the data from users with free accounts. Corporations and those who can afford to pay for Zoom services will have end to end encryption and their communication will be kept safe.
Eric Yuan, Zoom’s CEO, believes this is necessary because “some people use Zoom for bad purposes.” This is absurd. People with bad intentions can just pay for the account to ensure their calls are secure.
Meanwhile, people who can’t afford Zoom’s services are left vulnerable to cyber-criminals, stalkers, and hackers.
This is a decisive moment in terms of safety both on and offline.
Zoom implementing end to end encryption could be one of the single most important things any company could do to keep people safe right now. End to end encryption saves lives.
Sign the petition totell Zoom:“Keep people safe by implementing default end to end encryption for all video, audio, and text chat.”

As One Nation Under God, We the People ask President Trump to designate July 14 as the National Day of Repentance
This should be a warning to the American people. America needs to repent before our nation falls under judgment. It is the responsibility of God’s people to call on the nation to repent.
2 Chronicles 7:14 says, “If my people, which are called by my name…”
We the People are the true authority in America, and it is time that we take a stand for our country. In Isaiah 40 we hear “The voice of him that crieth in the wilderness, Prepare ye the way of the Lord…” and “All nations before Him are as nothing…” As we prepare for the return of our Lord, America is in dire need of repentance.
We the People of God call upon President Donald Trump to designate July 14th as the National Day of Repentance, now and forevermore.

Kristin Davis, known for her role in Sex and the City, is back as host of a bizarre series in which men compete to impregnate a single woman. Labor of Love is now airing on FOX Thursday evenings at 9:00 pm ET/8:00 pm CT.
The series features a female contestant getting to know various men in an attempt to choose one to be the potential father of her future child. The men compete to become the father of her child in a way that’s similar to the popular reality TV show The Bachelor. The expected outcome of the show is that the female contestant and the potential father she chooses will start a family together. But there is no mention of marriage in the show’s advertising. It’s all about partnership.
“The labor is mandatory; the love is optional,” Davis says in the show’s trailer.
This is a dating game on steroids. It goes from dating to mating by taking viewers along on one woman's unconventional and nontraditional journey to potential love and motherhood.
Here’s how FOX describes the new series:
In this dating reality show with a twist, a woman who is ready to start a family, but has yet to meet the potential father of her children, decides amongst aspiring fathers-to-be who go through challenges that put their parenting and partnership skills to the test. Each week, the mother-to-be, with the help of host Kristin Davis as her sounding board, decides who advances to the next week and gets another chance to prove themselves worthy of starting a family with her. Otherwise, she may choose to continue on the path to motherhood on her own.
The implications and innuendos of the show plus how it is being marketed is highly inappropriate, as is the whole idea of a woman choosing the father of her child based on a series of competitions.

Let's stand together with these senators
U.S. Senators are demanding Planned Parenthood affiliates return coronavirus funds that were intended for businesses that suffered loss during the pandemic. These funds were made available through the Paycheck Protection Program (PPP) of the recently passed CARES Act.
Sen. James Lankford (R-OK) said, "Under the statuary text of the CARES Act, organizations like these affiliates [such as Planned Parenthood] were expressly prohibited from receiving PPP funds."
Lankford and other senators sent a letter to U.S. Attorney General William Barr urging him "to investigate the activities of dozens of Planned Parenthood affiliates that reportedly applied for and received approximately $80 million in loans from the Paycheck Protection Program, despite actual knowledge that they were ineligible for such loans."
Reports indicate that the Small Business Administration (SBA) that dispersed the funds has already demanded Planned Parenthood affiliates return the money or face "severe penalties."
Sign the petition and stand with these senators against Planned Parenthood.
Senators signing the letter urging Barr to investigate Planned Parenthood include:
Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell (R-KY), Marsha Blackburn (R-TN), John Boozman (R-AR), Mike Braun (R-IN), Bill Cassidy (R-LA), John Cornyn (R-TX), Ted Cruz (R-TX), Steve Daines (R-MT), Mike Enzi (R-WY), Joni Ernst (R-IA), Lindsey Graham (R-SC), Cindy Hyde-Smith (R-MS), Jim Inhofe (R-OK), John Kennedy (R-LA), James Lankford (R-OK), Mike Lee (R-UT), Kelly Loeffler (R-GA), David Perdue (R-GA), Jim Risch (R-ID), Mitt Romney (R-UT), Mike Rounds (R-SD), Ben Sasse (R-NE), Rick Scott (R-FL), Tim Scott (R-SC), John Thune (R-SD), and Todd Young (R-IN).
Planned Parenthood Federation of America responded to the senators' demand for an investigation and claimed taxpayer funds actually helped it "continue to provide patients with essential, time-sensitive sexual and reproductive health care during this crisis." There's never an essential time for the federal government to send your money to abortion providers such as Planned Parenthood.
These senators also stated in their letter:
Most damningly, Planned Parenthood's own political action committee, Planned Parenthood Action Fund, issued a statement on the CARES Act after the Act's passage in the Senate, saying: 'The bill gives the Small Business Administration broad discretion to exclude Planned Parenthood affiliates and other non-profits serving people with low incomes and deny them benefits under the new small business loan program.'
Sign and share the petition with your family and friends. Let's stand together with these senators and their demand for an investigation of Planned Parenthood defrauding the American taxpayer.

CANCEL CULTURE IS BACK!!- The latest segment from Tucker Carlson's show has the radical left outraged yet again! Stand up to the mob and make sure to continue your Stand With Tucker!
"Since the day we went on the air, they [the left] have been working hard to kill this show. We haven't said much about it in public; it seemed too self- referential. The point of this show has never been us. But now, it's obvious to everybody. There is no pretending that it is not happening. It is happening.”

The conservative coalition Stand with Tucker encourages Fox News and Tucker Carlson Tonight’s advertisers’ to remain in steadfast support of Tucker Carlson.
These malicious ad hominem attacks on Carlson are designed to poison and silence debate. Misquoting someone or taking words out of context is done nefariously to ruin a person’s reputation. Those attacking Carlson know that charges, even ridiculously unfounded charges, of racism and sexism can be career-ending. Demagoguery endangers free societies because it ignores real debate.
Free speech and personal expression are under attack in America. The Stand with Tucker coalition recognizes that a well-informed electorate, essential to a free society, relies on dissenting opinion. Please Stand with Tucker and do not cower to phony outrage.

WE WILL NEVER BOW TO THE MOB!
A conservative coalition composed of organizations, PAC's, and media personalities has formed to emphatically rebuke the efforts of Media Matters to stoke the flames of the liberal mob in order to silence and de-platform Tucker Carlson. The Stand with Tucker campaign is designed to confront Media Matter’s and the radical Left's attempt to shut down Tucker Carlson Tonight and purge voices on the right.
Donald Trump Jr.joined the fight with this tweet: This is how to handle the outrage mob. Remember, even the most sincere apology means nothing to them. They want to break and ruin you. That’s their end goal.
What the members of our Conservative Coalition are saying:
Ed Rollins, Chairman of Great America PAC says, "Tucker Carlson is a gentleman, a great American, a devoted family man, an intellectual who’s voice needs to be heard. Oh and he’s also a thinking conservative and thought leader which is why the liberals want to shut him down.”
James O’Keefe, Founder of Project Veritas said “Our broken and corrupt media deserve no apologies. If we can’t trust their reporting why should we trust their outrage? Tell them to pound sand.”
Congressman Paul Broun said "Tucker Carlson is the most reasonable voice on television today. All Americans should Stand with Tucker."
Robert Morton, Publisher of World Tribune said "Tucker Carlson should be honored for upholding the Free Press against an assault by Soros-funded tools who seek to destroy him and America's founding principles."
Ed Martin, Chairman of Phyllis Schalfly's Eagle PAC said, “Tucker Carlson is an effective and broadly heard voice for conservative values on so many issues that matter to America right now. Conservatives must not play the liberal game and fall for drummed up politically correct frenzies. Stand with Tucker.”
Tim Young, No Things Considered Host said "Even if Tucker apologized for what he said, it wouldn't make a difference to those who are pushing for this narrative. They don't actually care about what he said on shock jock radio; they care about what he says on his show every night and the influence he has on American politics..."
Alan Gottlieb, Founder of the Second Amendment Foundation said, "The left is at war with Constitution. They use the same de-platforming tactics to attack the First and Second Amendments. They create faux outrage to punish advertisers, retailers, broadcasters who dare do business with anyone who doesn't subscribe to their liberal worldview. It must stop. I stand with Tucker."
Eric Brakey, founder of the Free Maine Campaign said, “Under the new regime of politics correctness, everyone is guilty. If we allow them to convict and destroy Tucker Carlson for thought crime today, it will be every wrong-thinking conservative’s head on the chopping block tomorrow.”
Col. Rob Maness, ret., founder of Gator PAC said, "We stand with Tucker Carlson. We will push back on all the attacks by the left-wing socialist media and their cohorts on social media to shame any American or attempt to cause them to lose their job."
Amy Kremer, Women Vote Trump said, "I may not always agree with everything that Tucker says, or has said in the past, I support his strong conservative voice. He is not a follower of group think and that is something I respect. I’m sick of the mob mentality where if you don’t fall in line, they are out to destroy you. This is America and if we disagree, then agree to disagree and stop trying to destroy those who don’t agree. This is nothing more than a Media Matters hit job to take down a conservative voice. If we don’t stand strong, they will take us down one by one. I stand with Tucker Carlson and will never bow to the mob."
James S. Robbins, author of Erasing America: Losing Our Future By Destroying Our Past said "It's funny how leftists are acting outraged by what Tucker said when we know they are in fact gleeful that they have found a cudgel to beat him with. Their faux outrage is really quite amusing. But I doubt anyone takes these people and their 'deeply offended' shtick seriously."
Andrew Ollis, Publisher at Believe Media said "Tucker is a target of the insane left because he is so effective. Media Matters picked on the wrong guy this time, it will be fun to watch Tucker annihilate them."
Larry Ward, Organizer of the Stand with Tucker Coalition and the President of Constitutional Rights PAC said “Don't forget the disturbing intimidation tactics by Antifa protestors surrounding Tucker Carlson’s home terrorizing his family, chanting, ‘Tucker Carlson, we will fight. We know where you sleep at night’. Media Matters is Antifa with a bigger budget.”
When elected officials know you are watching them and holding them accountable, they are more likely to do the right thing. AFA helps you to contact your officials quickly and easily.
Urgent Action: Send U.S. senators a message to vote "no" on the Equality Act. Senate Democrats are pushing Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell (R-KY) to take up Rep. Nancy Pelosi’s (D-CA) radical Equality Act, (H.R.5)—a bill designed to wield a wrecking ball to religious liberty. A significant number of Senate Democrats sent a letter to Sen. McConnell stating, “We write to urge you to immediately bring the bipartisan Equality Act (H.R. 5) to the Senate floor for a vote and fully enshrine in federal law explicit protections for LGBTQIA+ people against discrimination on the basis of their sexual orientation and gender identity.” The bill passed the Democratically-controlled House last year, and it has nothing to do with equality, but everything to do with punishing Christians' religious liberty. Take action now by sending your U.S. senators a message to vote "no" on the Equality Act. The Equality Act goes far beyond the recent and disastrous Supreme Court decision to add sexual orientation and gender identity as a civil right for employment purposes under Title VII. If the Senate were to pass Speaker Pelosi’s bill and President Trump signed it into law, it would unleash radical liberals to attack those whose faith teaches that marriage is only between one man and one woman and that sexual identity of male and female is a fixed, biological fact. By government edict, business owners, employees, and customers alike will be subject to a radical LGBT agenda:
Female business owners, customers, and employees would be forced to share spaces in restrooms and dressing rooms with men who claim to be women.
Women’s sports would be forced to open up to the participation of men who claim to be women.
Health care providers and professionals would be forced to perform gender transition procedures (sex changes) and provide medical services (hormone therapy) that would violate their moral and religious convictions.
Adoption and foster care agencies will be forced to place children into same sex households and into homes of individuals suffering from gender confusion.
College and professional sports stadiums would be required to open its restrooms to either sex.
The Democratic Party has clearly laid out its intent to force Christians to submit to radical sexual deviancy. The Party’s platform states, “We support a progressive vision of religious freedom that respects pluralism and rejects the misuse of religion to discriminate.” The “progressive vision” of religious liberty for Democrats was made clear by Chai Feldblum, the former commissioner of the Obama administration’s Equal Employment Opportunity Commission. Feldblum staked out the view of the Democratic Party when she said:
“I’m having a hard time coming up with any case in which religious liberty should win... Sexual liberty should win in most cases. There can be a conflict between religious liberty and sexual liberty, but in almost all cases the sexual liberty should win because that’s the only way that the dignity of gay people can be affirmed in any realistic manner.” (Emphasis added.) Here’s a resource to learn more about the Equality Act and share with others. Take action now by sending your U.S. senators a message to vote “no” on the Equality Act.

Michael Jackson’s 22-year-old daughter, Paris Jackson, will play a gender-bending Jesus Christ in the upcoming movie Habit. She will portray the religious figure wearing a traditional robe, tousled hair including a single accent braid, and a nose ring.
The actress and musician will star in the indie film opposite Bella Thorne, who will play a street-smart girl with a Jesus fetish who masquerades as a nun while trying to escape the consequences of a violent drug deal. Other confirmed cast members include a handful of singers such as rocker Gavin Rossdale.
One of the film’s producers, Donovan Leitch, told Entertainment Weekly that music will also play a central role in the film: “We intentionally stacked the film with rock stars and will have a very rocking soundtrack.”
This sacrilegious movie Habit mocks Christianity and ridicules people of faith. Elevated Films represents the US rights to the project. Elevated Films has obviously gone too far. The company would never, in a million years, produce a film that defamed Muhammad in a similar fashion.
Habit, directed by first-time feature director Janell Shirtcliff, was already filmed before the coronavirus pandemic and is currently in post-production. The film does not yet have a release date or a distributor.
One Million Moms needs to make sure this film is not released. 1MM needs your help to convince Elevated Films not to release Habit – not now, not ever.
