Whistle Blowers Needs Media Coverage. By Jan Lightfoot

The Whistle blower makes next to no noise, without media coverage. Not even Landlords placing bogus clauses in their contracts, will jingle any bells. Not, if the Left news or Mainstream News fails to report it. It is Illegal to put illegal phrases into rental contracts, as facts. As to create passages of The renter must have a “Minimum Income,” of 2 to 3 times of the cost of the rent, in order to be considered eligible to rent. When no law exists to that effect.

A decade and half ago I told Local, statewide and one or more top 100 US newspapers about the Northeast turning away, people in need who qualified and applied for General Assistance, as town or state Paying of rent, or lives basics, when hitting a hard patch. These requests where dishonestly or fraudulently denied such, by city officials.

This amounts to official abuse of office. Or to official oppression. It is an action contrary to a democrat process. But I found out the press would rather pretend all is great.

The Trump Ukraine whistleblower, found someone to print his cause. It went viral. It caused An Action of Impeachment. So, when Media does its job right, America can fix its flaws. Whistle blowing is exposing of actions that should not exist.

Back to Colorado, making more people homeless, and staying living in the rough, longer. By media not covering many of its landlords doing what they are not authorized to accomplish, making laws which benefits only themselves. If the Minimum Income where a law, the Landlord Associations would not have asked Colorado State Lawmakers to pass it, in the winter of 2020! It would have been in effect for these past decades.

Anyone can put articles into a contract which is legal, as Minimum Income of renters, is not yet a law; this is an item, that is as illegal. As saying “the renter will pay the proprietor in pot alone.” In Colorado, recreational ma*****na is legal. But it is not a legal form of payment. So, such a term cannot be placed into a rental contact.

No one but the author, will know what the Renters Minimum Income will be until it is drafted. Then the public will not know what it is, until after it is officially filed.

But state lawmakers cannot devise a law which is contrary to the US Constitution. Or Federal laws on housing as the Housing Act. While this is great to allow property-owners to discriminate against low paid renters, this is a majority caused by the low-balled government $7.25 minimum wage. This makes them a group of a minority, as well as race, Disability, pauper or indigent, etc. And subject to the Equal process clause of Const. Amendment 5th , and 14th.

The state lawmakers cannot create a law which oversteps, it authority. Just as it can not put the Federal minimum wage law into conflict, with the amount of money one MUST have in order to rent. State law lacks the authority to tell private providers, of basic needs, that they are entailed to even twice the Income maximum to income. The state does not benefit by this law.

State Legislators can not enact a law saying “you the renter are required to have twice the income of the rent, while federal law pays not just the cost of rent of a slum, in too many cases.” There is no State cause, for such a law. The community does not, reap an advantage, due to this law.

State laws, should be impartial. Not favoring landlords over, what they deem as insignificant renters. It’s the minimum paid worker who will become living without safety of walls, or jailed, if this mock/phoney law is allowed to pass. Nor being able to rent another apartment on this bogus hoax. The papier suffer. This prejudice bill, will hurt the 55% of worker paid a federal meager wager of minimum wage. Or paid just a few dollars about the Blemished formula but not twice the rent.

What is and have been faulty/inconsistent number, put into contacts in for the low-income paid is 2 to 2.5 to 3 times, the amount of rent. This is another reason of the unfairness of letting the owner of the units, decide what baised/arbitrary number to use. According to the US & CO. Const, Randomness is suppose to be decided in favor of the renter, or the signer, not the contract creator. But this bill ought NOT pass, in conflict with federal laws.

Properties are hold by out of state companies and could be copied in every stat in the union.

I seek people who would be whistle-blowers to tell me how to convince state law makers, they are not constitutionally permitted to create such a law. How to punish landlords who carried this phrase in their contact. How to get media, to cover this, and which are the best ones, in Colorado. To carry this alleged, Unconstitutional/ haphazard act, so it will not pass. Tell this advocate who has minus zero for a budget who to make noise too.
If I read correctly, a survivor of the Parkland HS, who was not there that day, committed su***de this week.

The Speedy Foundation is dedicated preventing su***de, supporting mental health and promoting conversations to end stigma. The Speedy Foundation was formed in 2011 in memory of Jeret "Speedy" Peterson.

2020 was the deadliest gun violence year in decades. So far, 2021 is worse. 06/14/2021

2020 was the deadliest gun violence year in decades. So far, 2021 is worse.

He**in wreaked havoc in Black communities for decades, giving rise to a “war on drugs.” But, she said, “as soon as opioids started impacting White communities, it was a public health crisis.”

“When we think about gun violence, it’s been ravaging Black and Brown communities for decades,” Crifasi said. “But it wasn’t until mass shootings started impacting predominantly White communities that people really started paying attention.”

2020 was the deadliest gun violence year in decades. So far, 2021 is worse. Experts say the “perfect storm” of the coronavirus pandemic, increased inequality and protests against police brutality is to blame for the surge in shootings. They’re bracing for an even deadlier summer.
