Pres. Worthen and Utah Rep. Weiler (BYU law and LDS member):  Are you both aware of what was posted on Facebook Mormon.org for many days? Find out if you don't already know.
I serve the Lord Jesus Christ and I have solid use of facts and logic. jlp
 To those under oath is main message below. . April 29,2014 facebook is supposed to restore all of my posts. We will see. It doesn't matter, this information will be shared. It wasn't a glitch, it was planned. Not by me.
I just work here. (My many facebook posts on Easter weekend, including Mormon.org., and leading up to it, were set as top comment on national media, church and scientific facebook sites. This should not have happened because near to no approvals to make that happen with facebook automated software. But it did over and over. )
Insight into human behaviors, is within message to courts and  professors of law below.

Dear Officers of the court or professors of law:
Please review and give your opinion to your beliefs that support "freedom of speech" on corporate funding public elections and if current drug laws create a master/slave situation between citizen members?
(If you find it impossible to give your opinion: you will know instinct is protecting status quo operations and each of you must find a way to give your truthful reply, it is your duty. Paradox to act against your own survival logic which is in your best interest to do so. Not to act is more dangerous to stability than to correct bad behaviors.)
   What both sides, or all sides, fail to recognize is the fact that our Democracy laws are being broken.
Our problem is that we have inherited unlawful practices and laws from our forefathers.
Because of that fact, those unlawful laws are engrained in status quo operations.
Which mean they have a power of their own from correction.
Sounds like SCI-FI, but this is the way instinct works for or against a society.
 Corporate Bribery and Drug slavery laws clearly violate equality under constitutional law but are viewed by even experts as lawful, which is not logical if using all of the facts on hand They can not be lawful because of our highest principle, being equal or impartial toward all citizen members or groups, under uniform law code.
No special powers given to persons or groups by law.
If you would like proof that corporate bribery is an unpunished crime: print the 1 question survey and try to get an attorney, judge, public official under oath to sign their beliefs as agreeing with U.S. Supreme Court or not?

"1 Question Survey for Public Officials Under Oath."

The question is simple and straight forward:
Is the act of giving or receiving gifts or promises with the intent to influence a public official unlawful?
Answer the 1 question survey and honor your oath of office. Please return survey to me?
If intent is provable beyond any reasonable doubt: then such practices must be prosecuted, bribery is a crime against our citizen membership.
  Gross misconduct and ethics violations are the least of the charges that should and must be fully investigated/prosecuted by those having authority over such inexcusable behaviors as to accepting or supporting bribery. Bribery is unlawful. The law of bribery is an act against citizen voter equality. Equality of voter powers is the cornerstone of our democracy under a constitution.
We have been silent, those of us who are under constitutional oath of office. Never again can we allow our rules of conduct to be openly violated without voicing our objection in the most vigorous  ways at our disposal. We are citizens of the United States of America and by law, constitutional law, must defend each other's rights to the fullest extent available, within the laws we swore to uphold.

I am a public official under oath (or may become one) and must have an opinion about the use of money or promises to influence any public official in the discharge of his or her public or legal duties.

I agree that corporate political contributions are not lawful and violate state and federal bribery statutes because of "corporate mission laws" that protect share holders funds (from fraud/embezzlement); funds must  be spent on profit, potential profit or humanitarian expenditures only. So intent cannot be freedom of speech but seeking influence for profit.


If you believe that corporate contributions are lawful: Sign down here instead:


BRIBERY:  The offering, giving, receiving, or soliciting of something of value for the purpose of influencing the action of an official in the discharge of his or her public or legal duties................unlawful by constitutional Equality Under All Laws.. (created Feb. 14, 2014)

Subject: The pipeline to progressive leadership

Thanks for coming on board.
Leadership Programs Welcome Banner

Dear Jonathan L.,

For thirty years the Right Wing has spent tens of millions of dollars investing in their youth leadership. Their support of the infrastructure for their elected officials, candidates, young up-and-comers and thought leaders is a robust and vast array of shadowy Religious Right groups, think tanks and foundations. Wealthy right-wing donors and organizations have poured untold resources into building the conservative movement, including its farm team -- training and recruiting young activists who eventually go on to shape our national politics and culture. You know of many of them: Karl Rove, Grover Norquist and none other than Sarah Palin.

PFAW Foundation recognized the need for progressives to engage similarly. To fill a critical gap in our own movement, PFAW Foundation created a set of innovative programs designed to establish a leadership pipeline to give Americans the government and leaders -- on all levels -- that we deserve.

Young People For: Building the Future Now

For over 30 years, ultraconservatives have invested hundreds of millions of dollars into building an infrastructure that initiates young people into the radical right movement through campus activism, leadership training and career development. Their investments have paid off.

If progressives want to achieve the same sort of political success that the radical right has enjoyed for the past two decades, we're going to have to do more than just focus on the next round of elections and pay lip service to engaging young people. We must make a serious, long-term investment in our next generation of progressive leaders -- now.

In 2004, People For the American Way Foundation launched a strategic, long-term leadership initiative, Young People For (YP4), to invest in the next generation of leaders and build a long-term national network for young progressives. YP4 serves motivated, socially aware, diverse and creative college-age young adults who are emerging leaders on their campuses and in their communities. The program works with them to create positive change in their communities while empowering the newest generations of skilled, progressive leaders who will lead with progressive values, make progress in their communities today, and create sustainable change over the long term. YP4 offers resources, guidance and a wide variety of ongoing opportunities for young leaders to connect with other progressive leaders and organizations, plan and execute projects of their choosing, and learn valuable leadership, communication, organizing, collaboration and advocacy skills.

The Young Elected Officials Network

PFAW Foundation's Young Elected Officials (YEO) Network understands the unique needs of progressive young electeds, and its mission is to unite and support leaders under the age of 35 who share a passion for building communities that reflect the values of freedom, fairness, and opportunity.

Just as the word "progressive" evokes an image of moving forward, the YEO Network aims to help propel young electeds successfully along their path to becoming effective public servants. By exchanging ideas, networking with like-minded elected officials, developing leadership skills, and connecting with policy development organizations and think tanks, members are empowered to transform their political vision into progressive action.

The YEO Network provides incredible value to its members all across the country, be they mayors, school board members, city council members or state legislators who are looking to achieve the most effective progressive leadership. (Read More >)

Front Line Leaders Academy

The Front Line Leaders Academy (FLLA) is a premier campaign leadership development program offered every year by the Young Elected Officials (YEO) Network and Young People For (YP4) to 20 talented young people from across the country. FLLA provides prospective candidates and campaign leaders the ability to learn from successful political campaign professionals.

For six months FLLA works with young leaders and provides trainings on a wide range of leadership development and political skills. Fellows receive training on the five core competencies of political campaigns: how to be an effective candidate, campaign manager, finance director, communication director and field organizer. This campaign and leadership development program offers intense trainings for young leaders who demonstrate the potential and desire to run for office or take on a leadership role within a campaign. Young leaders selected for the program participate in a series of workshops led by Young Elected Officials and campaign experts.

Several FLLA graduates have gone on to elected office, using the training, resources and close connections made through Young People For and the Young Elected Officials Network to advance progressive policies, in their states and localities, true to our core constitutional values. (Read More >)

African American Religious Affairs

The Religious Right has been trying for decades to make inroads with African Americans through the church. Their goals have been to achieve greater success on their issues and at the ballot box by chipping away at the African American support of progressives while attracting what support they can for right-wing causes with religious rhetoric. Early African American outreach attempts by the Far Right focused on desperation around public education conditions in some African American communities and tried to attract African American support for private school vouchers (funded by public dollars). But in recent years, the focus has been in the religious arena on "culture war" issues -- particularly gay rights. Changing attitudes about Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual and Transgender (LGBT) equality in the African American church is just one of the important roles PFAW's African American Ministers In Action (AAMIA) and PFAW Foundation's African American Ministers Leadership Council (AAMLC) plays.

Our networks of ministers include some of the most dynamic, savvy and effective religious organizers in the country. They work proactively to bring a prophetic voice to the pressing moral issues of the day. Our ministers organize around five core issues central to the African American community: civic participation, economic justice, equal justice, health care and public education. Recently, members of both the AAMIA and AAMLC have been among the faith leaders on the front lines speaking out for the fair treatment of immigrants and comprehensive immigration reform.

Thank you for taking the time to read about some of the critical leadership programs that make PFAW and PFAW Foundation so unique and so effective at building the progressive movement from within. Your involvement is now adding to our strength, and there is no limit to what we can achieve, together.

All the best,

Michael B. Keegan, President
