To bring respect back to the residents of the District of Columbia. Mainly, our future generation our children will have to endure the anguish, persecution, being deprived of the chance to go to the election polls and vote, then be proud to say, I am proud to be in a Democracy where I have the freedom to choose my Mayor, Council person. Congressperson and President, unfortunately, the Congressmen, Senator Faircloth of North Carolina, Senator Trent Lott (Mississippi), House Speaker Newt Gingrich (GA), former Senator Bob Dole (from behind the scene), House Committee Chair Rep. Thomas Davis (VA), a liar a perpetrator of fraud, coming into the lives of the residents of the District of Columbia so he could learn how this chocolate city works. Pretending that he was in our corner feeding the above with information on our weakness, compassion for each other and our fellowman, our family structure that was based on a Christian background. Once he took kindness for weakness, conned us into believing he was interested in helping us. But he was the pharisee that also is Judas, who sold us out for capital gain. Jealousy and envy of one of the most power black mayors in the U.S. of America. Even (he), Mayor Marion S. Barry, Jr. did not realize the positiveness, power and strength until I brought to his attention that this plot to take over the District of Columbia, our nation's capitol, ten years. That was why he was set up nine years ago and over 40 million dollars used to entrap the Mayor with a personal dilemma - illness/temporary habit. A cry of help in the wilderness. If they would have had the slightest bit of evidence of any wrong doing with Mayor Marion S. Barry, duties as a Mayor. He would have been asked to resign, like Nixon and locked up and the key thrown away.

I, YeHanna Joan M.M. Malone, former Joan Clarke, told the Mayor to stop allowing resident of the District News Media, or anyone to keep labeling you with a handle that does not belong to you. It has always been a conspiracy by the Pharisees, (this is babylon God said to me) to seize the capital for their home to the residents of Washington, D.C. for the past nine years you have allowed others and you also have prosecuted Mayor Marion S. Barry, Jr. for being a human being with feeling, faults and needs, the same as you. The only difference is that the majority of the programs: the drug, alcohol, job corps, pride incorporated, all of the youth programs, etc. You have to the advantage of getting your act together through all the above programs. Just so you can blasphemy the Mayor. Did you ever ask Marlon S. Barry, Jr. if he wanted to join your groups so he could participate in a healing process like you so graciously benefit from? or taken the time to see the man that chose to sacrifice everything (look back on his life, time, his son and his happiness to help people that refuse to save your own children's schools, children's future, homeland, Washington, D.C., save home rule, people who keep giving their money away to oppressors that take and give nothing In return. Taxation without representation and now we are all to blame for allowing our elected Congressional and presidential leaders whom we voted back in as President many worked hard on Clinton campaign just for him to back stab the United States in the beginning of his term. I really would hate to imagine the next three years. We all must chance our ways and join together and fight for what is rightfully God's.


We need petitions to continue to be responsible for what God gave us, our nation's capital to strive to be the best capital city as Mayor Marion S. Barry always says, "We can be", and another one of his famous sayings (which even President Clinton's wife said, 'It takes a whole village to raise a child.' Let us all get back to being that village and tribe people. Let's united and spread God's love to each other. Remember Jesus said he who is without sin cast the first stone.
