The Petition

To: U.S. Congress, the Attorney General in each state as well as the United States Attorney General Office

On May 9th, 2010 The New York Times published an article: "At Front Lines, AIDS War Is Falling Apart"

WHEREAS, one of the reasons the war on AIDS is falling apart is because of corruption within the Federal Government and the Black Market over Inflated Sales of AIDS and HIV Drugs In Africa and around the world. On Dec 1, 2009 an email was leaked that was sent from Africa by Carol Payne Flavell in which she stated:

"there is a major black market scam being worked on the $30 million a year in HIV/AIDS drugs we finance... I could easily name the in-house folks but my lips are sealed."

Carol Payne Flavell is an Administrative Employee of United States Agency for International Development (USAID) and Presidential Emergency Plan for Aids Relief (PEPFAR).

Carol's private business, Thunderbolt Enterprises, has a business account with Standard Chartered bank in Abidjan, their US headquarters is in New York. The Standard Charter US bank website states "The bank's primary function is to facilitate trade and investment flows between the Americas and the Group's core geographies of Asia, Africa, and the Middle East."

Thousands of people are losing their lives every month because of the Black Market Sales of HIV/AIDS drugs which make the drugs unaffordable and sometimes the Black Market Retailers thin out and 'cut' the medicine with water and other chemicals and cause it to become toxic.

WE THE PEOPLE of the United States of America,
and the people all over the world,
pursuant to the Bill of Rights, Amendment One,
which gives the right of the American people to
petition the United States government for a
redress of grievances, hereby state the following:
WHEREAS, Carol Payne Flavell's name is found in
numerous Internet search results listed as the
"Deputy Director at United States Agency for
International Development, Washington, DC."
Her name also appears with the President's
Emergency Plan for AIDS Relief, known as PEPFAR,
created by George Bush in 2003 and her name
appears with the Hoops4Africa and HoopsForAfrica
program. She has been very active in a large
variety of recent activities involving moving
money across international borders as can be seen
by a large variety of her emails published on the
Internet.

WHEREAS, Carol Payne Flavell, has made reference
to Charles Blé Goudé and referred to him as
(among other things) "he controls the oil. What
can I say? Except that I'm intrigued" and
referred to Charles Blé Goudé in emails as "a
friend in very high places." [ Email sent by
Carol Payne Flavell on Thu, Nov 12, 2009]

WHEREAS, "Charles Blé Goudé is the founder and
current leader of Congrès Panafricain des Jeunes
et des Patriotes (COJEP). Set up in June 2001,
the group has attracted controversy and
international condemnation due to its alleged
involvement in extra-judicial killings and
demonstrations organised by the group which have
often turned violent. The organisation is strongly
nationalist and has even been accused of racism
and Islamophobia"

WHEREAS, Charles Blé Goudé has been described as
one of three people placed on the list of "COTE
D IVOIRE: Profiles of three facing UN
sanctions." The Global Security article states:
"The United Nations has placed individual
sanctions on political figures in Cote d'Ivoire.
[One of the] three who... face an international
travel ban and assets freeze... [are] as follows:
"CHARLES BLE GOUDE: The... UN Sanctions Committee
UN statement*, says he was listed for sanctions
for "public statements advocating violence
against United Nations installations and
personnel... direction of and participation in acts
of violence by street militias, including
beatings, rapes and extra-judicial killings...
[and an] obstacle... to the peace process."
Charles Blé Goudé... has been nicknamed 'The
General' for his ability to bring thousands of
youngsters onto the streets within hours."
WHEREAS, Charles Blé Goudé has stated, on Adolf
Hitler: "I've gotten to the point today where
I don't believe anymore that Hitler was bad, or
that Milosevic is bad." [Le Patriote, Newspaper
of the RDR), 12 May 2004]


WHEREAS, Samuel A. Weems, who was elected as one
of the one hundred delegates to rewrite the
Arkansas Constitution and once held the office of
prosecuting attorney has written a widely
published article condemning Carol Payne
Flavell's support of violent activities and
terrorists. Among his many statements to her
which he forwarded to numerous politicians and
published many places, he said "Ms. Flavell, by
your agency's giving $15 million US tax
dollars... Your action is nothing more than the
total support for [a] regime that is guilty of
ethnic cleansing."

* United Nations SECURITY COUNCIL COMMITTEE
CONCERNING CÔTE D'IVOIRE ISSUES LIST OF
INDIVIDUALS SUBJECT TO MEASURES IMPOSED BY
RESOLUTION 1572 (2004)

WHEREAS, Samuel A. Weems, who was elected as one
of the one hundred delegates to rewrite the
Arkansas Constitution and once held the office of
prosecuting attorney has written a widely
published article condemning Carol Payne
Flavell's support of violent activities and
terrorists. Among his many statements to her
which he forwarded to numerous politicians and
published many places, he said: "Shame on you
Ms. Flavell. Read the Minnesota Advocates for
Human Rights report on their web site
www.mnadvocates.org Ms. Flavell-I am certain that
you are aware of the fact that the United Nations
voted not once but on five different occasions
demanding... withdraw from its unlawful occupation
of Nagorno-Karabakh because they have illegally
invaded 20% of Azerbaijani lands. These United
Nations resolutions can be verified in their
yearly reports. Therefore, I am amazed that you
should allocate $15 million dollars of my tax
money to help such acts of terrorism against
Muslims and Jews. The United States "claims"
to be fighting against such terrorist acts that
your agency is encouraging and supporting.
Consider what the United Nations says... Ms.
Flavell."

WHEREAS, Carol Payne Flavell has stated, in
numerous emails written by her that have been
widely published, that she and her fellow
directors of Thunderbolt, "Micah [Jones] and
Andre [Nkouaga]," have current, ongoing legal
troubles all over the world. Yet Carol Payne
Flavell has somehow been able to spend $10,000.00
per month to get her son and fellow business
director Micah Jones out of legal trouble when she
stated, "I haven't mentioned this, but Micah
got himself in deep **** back east that has cost
about $10K a month [in legal fees] for the past
few months, and he is...also coming here."
[Email sent by Carol Payne Flavell on Thu, Oct 29,
2009]

THEREFORE, it is concluded that Carol Payne
Flavell and Andre Nkouaga's finances all over
the world warrant a full investigation.
FURTHER, the United States government has allowed,
and is continuing to allow, Carol Payne Flavell to
benefit and/or direct the American people's tax
money.

THEREFORE, it is up to the American people to
exercise their rights and hold Carol Payne Flavell
and Andre Nkouaga accountable for financial
irregularities which may or may not lead to the
support of other friends in high places of Carol
Payne Flavell's which may also lead to Carol
revealing the names of in-house US Federal
Government people involved in the Black Market
over-Inflated Sales of AIDS and HIV Drugs In Africa.

CONSEQUENTLY, the people of the United States of
America declare the following,
TO THE UNITED STATES GOVERNMENT: Pursuant to the
Bill of Rights, Amendment One, we, the people of
the United States, declare that we are grieved
over the actions of Carol Payne Flavell and Andre
Nkouaga and hereby petition the United States
government to take immediate action to cease
funding Carol Payne Flavell with any taxes from
the United States of America in any way, manner of
form until Carol Payne Flavell and Andre
Nkouaga's finances receive a full financial
investigation. This includes past, current and
future finances in the USA, France, Berlin and
worldwide.

We, the People, further DEMAND an immediate,
thorough and honest investigation by the US
Government into Carol Payne Flavell and Andre
Nkouaga's finances.

Sincerely,

The Undersigned
