Meet Your Multiemployer Pension Nightmare: Actuary to Lawmakers

A witness told members of a new committee that 1 million people could soon face 90% benefits cuts. By Allison Bell | Think Advisor

Either Congress fixes the program that insures U.S. multiemployer pension plans, or 1 million or more Americans could face cuts of about 90% in their pension benefits payments sometime in the 2020s.

Ted Goldman, a longtime pension actuary, gave the members of a new congressional committee that warning Wednesday, at a hearing meant to give the members a basic primer on the nature of the multiemployer pension plan funding crisis their supposed to try to address.

“Time is of the essence,” Goldman said. “The more time that passes, the bigger this problem will become, and the harder it will

Trump has been aggressive in cutting red tape, but for the benefits to last Congress must act.

By Political Editors · at The Patriot Post/https://patriotpost.us/articles/55464-trump-oversees-biggest-cuts-to-regs-in-quarter-century

The Competitive Enterprise Institute has released its Ten Thousand Commandments, an annual report on the scope, size and cost of federal regulations. Those regulations amount to a “hidden tax” on Americans, as well as a severe limit on Liberty. The good news is that President Donald Trump has followed through on his campaign promise to cut federal regulations, and his initial efforts have produced the most significant cutting of government red tape in more than 25 years. Here are some of the highlights thus far per the CEI:

Jacksonville Business Wins Fight to Fly Military Flags – City Official Had Told Veteran His Service Didn’t Matter

By Rusty | Featured Contributor | THE POLITICAL INSIDER

A Jacksonville business successfully won its battle with the city over their right to fly militaryflags, but the controversy over how city officials handled the matter isn’t dying down any time soon.

Jaguar Power Sports, a motorcycle dealership in the area, posted a video on social media indicating they had been warned by city officials for daring to fly pro-military flags on their building and had 24 hours to ‘correct’ the violation.

“That’s right, we just got a ticket … for flying military flags,” the manager is heard saying in the video. “They told us to take them down or go to court over it. Are you serious

By Jordan Candler · at The Patriot Post/https://patriotpost.us/articles/55463-cuomos-parolee-voting-decree-good-politics-bad-policy

Admitting that he’s “unwilling to take no for an answer,” New York Democrat Gov. Andrew Cuomo this week circumvented the state legislature by signing a dubious executive order authorizing voting rights for 35,000 parolees. The process is rather cumbersome, as The New York Times explains:

The mechanism through which Mr. Cuomo plans to do so is unusual: He would consider pardons for all 35,000 people currently on parole in New York, as well as any new convicted felons who enter the parole system each month. … Mr. Cuomo’s executive order would require the commissioner of the state’s

By Timothy Daughtry at Townhall The opinions expressed by columnists are their own and do not represent the views of Townhall.com.

American teenagers march in the streets to gut or eliminate the Second Amendment, and our youth are increasingly comfortable with socialism. Conservative speakers are harassed and physically threatened on college campuses. According to many in positions of power, any difference in achievement or earning among various social groups is assumed to be evidence of discrimination or oppression of one group by another, and assumed to be grounds for governmental intervention. Our national borders are being worn away despite popular demands for border security. Much of what passes for news is

President Trump and the Attorney-Client Privilege

By Judge Andrew Napolitano from Townhall The opinions expressed by columnists are their own and do not represent the views of Townhall.com.

A few weeks ago, President Donald Trump was an outwardly happy man because of the utterance of one solitary word from the lips of special counsel Robert Mueller to one of Trump’s lawyers. The word that thrilled the president and his legal team was “subject.”

It seems that Mueller and one of Trump’s lawyers had been negotiating the terms under which the president would submit to an informal interrogation by Mueller and his team of prosecutors and FBI agents. Mueller’s request for such an interview was not unusual.

After Giuliani Joins Trump, Comey Admits Ordering Investigation Because of Rudy

Share

Call it a pre-emptive smear.

With former FBI Director James Comey’s book tour going from media blitz to media bust, interviewers are trying to breathe some life into it by opening a new attack on the Trump administration.

But Comey’s latest slam of Rudy Giuliani just might be a mistake.

In an interview with MSNBC’s Rachel Maddow on Thursday, only hours after the news broke that the former New York mayor is officially joining President Donald Trump’s legal team, Comey reiterated what he’d told a Senate panel last year only a week before he was fired.

He told Maddow he had ordered an

| IJR

Former New York City Mayor Rudy Giuliani is joining the legal team representing President Donald Trump in the special counsel’s Russia investigation.

“I’m doing it because I hope we can negotiate an end to this for the good of the country and because I have high regard for the president and for Bob Mueller,” Giuliani said, confirming the news to The Washington Post on Thursday.

In a statement released by Trump attorney Jay Sekulow, the president praised Giuliani’s decision and noted their close friendship.
