Hello, I Just joined, and wanted to introduce myself.
My name is Edward Janus. I am a Disability Advocate and Activist (Disabled myself). My Campaign and Mission is Fighting for Persons with Disabilities. And Making Our Voices Heard. Internet Activism for Supporting Causes of Change. Governmental & Political Issues, Government Accountability, Fair and Honest Media Reporting, Consumers Rights. Animals, Civil, Children’s, Human, and Woman’s Rights. Educational, Health Care, and Environmental Issues. Abuse, Freedom, Homeless, Hunger, Peace, Poverty, and Violence Issues. And many other Important Causes. Sharing News and Resources.
A little bit more about me. I have Cerebral Palsy and an amputee (both legs) confined to a wheelchair. I am homebound, shut-in. I have worked to earn a living for almost 25 years. Then I had over ten surgeries on my cervical spinal column (neck area) in my lifetime. Now I have been on Permanent Social Security Disability since 1996. I was married and have a daughter. In 1999 an automobile while crossing a street, struck my wife. She died instantly. Now, I Live Alone. I receive only one household income. A Social Security check monthly.
On a personal note, I would contact people by telephone, but I am also deaf. I cannot hear very well on the phone. You can reach me by email; all my activities and tasks are via Internet. Or you may send a regular postal mail. Forgive me not Chatting, Instant Messaging, and Slow Letters. Due to having Cerebral Palsy, it is difficult for me to type with a regular keyboard. Therefore, I use the Windows 'On-Screen Keyboard’ this way I can type clicking my mouse. This still takes a little while for me to type.

(to Tink/True's persistent efforts)!
to all of you. I look forward to
working with you.
Thank you for Joining us Pam and Welcome!
Thanks for inviting me. I've been touched by Nada's story and hope things go as they should. I'm leaving for Africa in two days and will be gone for a month. See you when I return.
Welcome Sue! Thank you for showing interest and taking action. I thought there would be more information for you on the group pages, and again, if you have any questions that arent being answered here, please ask!
Hi to all and thank you True Patriot for the invite. I have signed a couple petitions for Nada but didn't know much about the story behind it. I have a better view now, and will sign whatever petitions are needed.
Thank you True Patriot, it's too bad we can't get Dennis Kucinich to look into this, we need somebody who isn't afraid of controversy.
That Kenneth Chadwell is NO relation to me. (thank the dear Lord)
Kathy, Im glad you joined us, Welcome. The 2 actually 3 are Eric Straus, Kennith Chadwell and Stephen Murphy all out of the Michigan office. Their reasons for homing in on and destroying Nada's career, reputation and causing her to loose her citizenship will come out and it wont be because they had our, the agency or the country's best interest at heart.The truth will reveal their own undermining devious personal agenda's that they conspired to defraud the Govt at the expense of Nada. This is why it is vital that we get govt officials on state and fed level to speak up, request Nada's case be reopened and re investigated for unfair, unethical and unprofessional investigations. They where warned and told by Senior Federal Judge Avern Cohn to stop feeding the press yet they continued. Why? Because they had no case on Nada and they knew it. Your support is greatly appreciated and I look forward to your input and participation! ~ T
I watched Nada's story on 60 minutes (I think it was) Coming from a family of Marines I was touched to hear this woman stayed in the combat zone, PREGNANT, because she wanted to save Marines lives. Who is the idiot that made these false accusations? Ohhh that's right it was the Federal Bureau Of Intimidation. Does anybody else maybe see this as a turf war and poor Nada is caught in the middle of it? The CIA did their own investigation and says she is innocent and wants her cleared (and back in the CIA wasn't it)? These agencies have a well known history of feuding & not cooperating with one another. I'm willing to sign any petitions, & write any letters to help this brave woman.

Welcome Aboard Phylis, Linda, Jenny and Nick!
We appreciate your time and support! I think the first thing one can do is go to the front page and follow the links to sign the petitions and write the officials requesting Nada's case be reopened and re examined for unfair investigations. C has provided us with flyers for our sites to educate others about Nada Prouty, and a standard letter you can use to write the officials.
Please feel free, in fact we encourage you to share your idea's, questions, and comments with us and in a discussion. What we are doing is what we know to do, that doesn't make it the best or only approach we are willing to take. Talk to us and talk to each other. The sky is the limit here, and Nada is more then a worthy recipient of our efforts.
(This is GREAT!)
Just joined, and will do what I can to help.
I'm so proud of *C* and True for the work each of them take upon themselves, so here I am to support this group.
Being Australian, I wasn't familiar with Nada Prouty's plight for justice.
HI, I JUST JOINED AND I AM PROUD TO BE A PART OF A GREAT CAUSE! I AM HERE TO HELP IN ANY WAY I CAN. THANKS FOR THE INVITE! LINDA L.
Bless your heart, Phyllis, my dear friend! (I'm very proud of this group -- and all its members.)
I am here to help and I know if it is a cause that Just C endorses...it has merit.
Thank you Stephanie,
Please do check back often and if you haven't please sign the petition to Pres. Obama...
and there are plenty of other officials we can contact. We just need a crack to break it back open then they have to re address it.
I read this on True P's page and then I googled Nada and she is obviously innocent. Her error of marriage for citizenship gives the creeps just enough
leverage to paint her black.
I am not a bleeding heart but I hate seeing people get screwed over.
I don't imagine Senor Obama will even read any letters about her case.
I will keep checking back to see how things are going for her.
Thank you for signing the petition, and joining the group! Welcome! Justice will be served too and for Nada, Pam. I feel that to be the truth and the only truth that is acceptable. They may have won the battle but they didn't win the war... As a group we have more connections to educate and gain support. As a group our voice is louder and more annoying to those that don't want to listen. As a group we can brain storm more ways to support and assist, and do it more quickly and efficiently. So again, welcome to the group and for being a valuable part of this team.
Is that Joan Clever in that pic? grinning
This is Fantastic and most all have been active and I love it and love you all!!!!
Thanks to all of you for believing in Nada . . .
but, in particular, you -- Tink -- for a
tremendous job, very well done!
Your welcome Linda, I think if you pick a spot and just start reading your way to the other end you will find a lot. But to get you started...
The Case Against Nada Prouty - 60 Minutes - CBS News
SpyTalk - The Haunting of Nada Prouty, a Counterterrorism Heroine
Here is several links in one for you, Thank you C!
Flyers~ Please Promote
What do you need or want to know to stand strong behind Nada in her fight to regain her citizenship (group)
Plain Talk about Nada (group)
Of course all the Official links and petition is on the front page of the group.
Is that enough to get you started? Let me know when you need more!
Thank you all for making me so welcome in your group.I only know bits of Nada's terrible plight, is there anywhere in the group i can read up on her story,many thanks for your help.
So Glad you joined! Welcome and make yourself comfortable with all the information. If you have questions let us know. Please do not be afraid to start discussions or speak out.
You can still sign the petition, spread the word, and get others to do the same. Not to worry, There is something we can all do and your support is so very much appreciated.
They cant block all of us... Well maybe they can, but that too would make a statement that we could address in higher departments and one way or another they are going to hear us! AND do something for Nada.
Thanks for joining, and introducing yourself, Linda!
Hi Everyone, I'm new here and thank you True for the invite to join this wonderful group. I look forward to meeting everyone,many blessings to each of you.
What can a Canadian do? Just let me know folks and I will do it. I am going to start a "other Groups U might like thread at FSM" Please feel free to add your sites and encourage people to join you in your respective groups.
wrote the posted officials,my rep,my senators again,still no response but I'll keep writing until they either answer me or block me whichever comes first.
Thank you and I'm glad you took interest. What we can all do at the moment, is make sure we and all our friends and networks sign the petition for Nada.
Write letters to the GOVT. Officials posted on the front page.
Be active in group discussions and brain storm idea's to make these Govt. Officials TAKE ACTION.
Any idea you have is a good one, please share, and thank you for your support for Nada.
Mike, Thank you so much, there is no such thing as too much exposure now that they outed her and put her in danger. People need to know the truth, not slanderous tabloid gossip.
I have posted this far and wide through many social networks.
I was just at True's Care2 page and saw this when there. It interests me as I'm all for Justice, Respect, and the Patriot Way. I'd like to help in anyway I can. Although I've been a Care2 member since 2004, I rarely look at groups and post news here and on Facebook. Let me know if I can help in ANY way.
Welcome . . . and thank you!
for joining us, Sergio!
I just finished reading about this and what is going through my mind is, "How can they do that to her?!" I want to help out as much as i can!
Hi C & True - you are doing a wonderful job in making everyone aware of the truth behind Nada's story.
Christine!! Thanks for joining!
I'm here to do what I can... ... ...
Dusty (and all my Care2 colleagues) . . .
Thank you so much for realizing the worth I recognized in this endeavor (by True illuminating it). It means a great deal to me to feel your support and commitment.
Thank you for inviting me to this post "Just C." as I stand in support of this cause for Nada. I signed the Petition of her's several days ago as I was outraged that this fine women who has willingly given her life to the Service of this Country is being rail-roaded and her name deflamated. Forthermore, that the U.S.A. would have to even consider reinstating her Citizenship back to her that NEVER should have been taken from her to begin with. The F.B.I. should have stood in support of and stood behind "One of their OWN" and trusted that she was there to do the professional job that she had been trained to do. Had she been a man, they would have fought for her! This just sickens me and discust me. Is this the way OUR GOVERNMENT treates one of their own? I grow less and less faith in this Country everyday. I did not go and join the Military so that we might put innocent people in Prison nor take away their citizenship that they so rightly earned and are due and moreso...put their life on the line for.
Thanks for helping out, Agnes . . . !
I've joined and will try and do everything in my power to help Nadia. As a NON American I've got ways around this problem but also hope that everyone will keep that in mind.
Thank you Carole for inviting me and I hope I won't let you down. I noticed that you have a lot of NEW members and gather from that that Nadia is a popular lady and from what I've read and heard about her I'm not surprised.
If you ever get in touch with her or know someone who can get in touch with her please tell her to be careful as I fear for her life and that of her family.
for myself, i get tired of people always 'blaming the victim'. . .it's become a national pasttime. as usual, it's the little people that get hurt. . .i can't guarantee how often i'll be around, but one never knows.
peace out, yo.
Well, I can't give you another green star this week, Jan . . . but I do thank you!
Thanks for the invite *C*. I trust that's is worthy because it's important to you and after reading a bit about Nada, this is a very important cause. I am not sure what I can do, other than sign petitions and broadcast to friends, but I am willing to do what I can
Awwww, shucks . . . dear Margo!
Thank you *C* for asking me. I don't answer group requests often but this one is important to you, so it is with me.
I'm grateful for True bringing this travesty to my attention, and to all of you for also seeing the truth.
This will be so gratifying!
I would like to help Nada in any way I can.
Thank you Just C for showing us the first step!
HERE BACKING NADA PROUTY UP
I'm not sure how I can help other than just be here in support of Nada.
How good of you to campaign in support of her defense.
I hope the outcome is successful and swift.
Hi! I'm here because Carole is my friend and I'm supporting her and Nada. Hoping for a good outcome despite TPTB...
Awwwwwwwwww . . . Anis, you are such a great friend!
Just and True, I really appreciate your efforts about this matter. I read the case of Nada but not well aware in fact even interview of Nada still yet to seen but I know very well my respected friend Just and now True. I would like to be a part of this effort at my level best with yours, my best wishes are with Nada Prouty's.
Does anyone know how long this will take before Nada is safe to reside in the US ?
So many new faces . . . what a wonderful morning surprise! Thanks to all of you for joining the group and contributing your efforts!
Thank you True Patriot for the invite to the group here. I will be helping to spread this cause as much as possible. Already have started by giving the link to this group in 2 of my groups, will keep doing such in other groups.
Thank you for the invitation, I wrote some emails in an effort to bring this travesty of justice to the attention of people that I know, I am also sending emails to my representatives in hopes of enlisting their aid in interceding for Nada.
True, I was not convinced about this gal at first. But I have looked into this a lot more and changed my mind. It sounds like a Salem witchhunt to me and I thank you for inviting me to support her. I will post in FSM that I changed my mind after looking into everything as well.
Thanks True for inviting me to this very important group for a very special woman. We don't hear very much about these U.S.A. issues in Australia but then I chose not to watch television. The BBC news seems to be the first off the block on the internet and radio. My prayers are with Nada. God bless.
Hi just stopped by all my prayers are with you and hope you will get all the help you can get and find justice for her,no to well how these thing goes been fighting for 10 years to get my son home innocent in prison,so my prayers are with you JoAnn people for justice.
Thank you C for all your help and for being a new host on Nada's site!
Do we get the best minds . . . or what???
This is a great topic and quite disturbing! Nada's patriotism is being questioned while Emanuel Rahm and others have ties to, and openly support foreign interests - as the state of Israel? How absurd!
Please keep us posted.
Great work! Sorry, I couldn't send a star but you shine regardless!
. . . for joining and promoting Nada's situation!
Thank you for the invite ~C, I passed all of the information around so I hope that everyone in my small circle will join and that together we can all make a difference.
You people are so special to care so much in helping Nada who much be a very nice lady. I don't know much on the issue but what I have read seems very unjust. I hope the US Government does the right thing and supports Nada with an apology.
My web designing skills are limited and those intact are still a bit rusty so I appreciate all your help. The post you did was amazing and I know you think it's nothing but the little things help so much in getting the word out for Nada. Thank you again.
