Is your local school district haunted?

Share

Monday, August 29, 2016

Dear CF Friend,

Is your local school district haunted?

92% of school district contracts grant teachers and/or other district employees “release time” to leave the classroom and work for the union. Over 100 districts let these “ghost teachers” work full time for the union, while staying on district payroll and keeping pensions, health benefits, and seniority positions.

Teachers should be paid to teach, not work for the union. When lawmakers return to session, they have the chance to lay ghost teachers to rest.

HB 2125, sponsored by Rep. Rick Saccone, would end union release time with minor exceptions and require unions to reimburse districts for costs associated with release time, including salary, benefits, and pension contributions.

The bill passed

Welfare Is the New Work

Share

 

By Stephen Moore at Freedom Works Originally Published in The Washington Times on 7/31/16.

Two recent news stories highlight how pernicious the welfare state has become in America today.

The first was an announcement by the feds that food stamps can be used to have groceries delivered right to a recipient’s door. Service with a smile. The Obama administration says it is too much of a hardship for those on welfare to actually travel to the grocery store. What’s next? Cooking the meal for them? If only the DMV would do home deliveries for drivers licenses.

The second story was about the hullabaloo over a proposal by Maine governor Paul LePage to prohibit food stamp recipients from using their

What’s Happening at the SERS?

Share

By Rich Shuker

 

On July 22, 2016, SERS chairman, David Fillman released a statement concerning the indictment of Richard Ireland because of his relationship with former Treasurer and former SERS Board Member, Rob McCord, who pleaded guilty to counts of attempted extortion. Fillman wanted to ensure the SERS members that there were no dealings with Ireland, noting the SERS has a strict diligent process and stated that the 11 member board votes unilaterally about investment decisions.

(Interesting), he never mentioned the investigation of Anthony Clark, who was the Chief Investment Officer in 2010 through 2013. He wanted the SERS to invest $250 million into Tiger Investment, which was a hedge fund strategy. Due to this investment, $20 million was lost and $11 million

FROM JUDICIAL WATCH

‘DC is like a black hole.’ – Cincinnati Group Manager

(Washington, DC) – Judicial Watch today released 105 pages of newly obtained Federal Bureau of Investigation (FBI) “302” documents revealing that, beginning in 2010 and lasting through the Obama reelection campaign in 2012, the Obama IRS orchestrated a deliberate policy of burying conservative groups’ tax exemption applications in bureaucratic delays. Interviews with numerous Cincinnati IRS employees in mid-2013 reveal that “Tea Party” group applications were automatically denied approval and assigned to a special “Group 7822” for an extended “inventory” process while waiting for decisions from IRS headquarters in Washington, DC. One IRS manager “asked why progressive cases were not segregated similar to the Tea Party cases,
