Pennsylvanians For Union Reform In Legal Battle With Court Of Common Pleas

PENNSYLVANIANS FOR UNION REFORM v. CENTRE COUNTY COURT OF COMMON PLEAS Separation of powers – the fight is on!

It’s not often you get to do legal battle where the other party is the Court itself. Welcome to Pennsylvania’s Right to Know Law. I mentioned the chaos in Centre County at the PLC this last weekend (video here). We want financial records of the Courthouse. Only they’re telling us that we’re not allowed to use the Right to Know Law. We have to use their “Rule”. Imagine that. Being told by a Court that you’re not allowed to access the law! Well, it’s creating a stinker as you can see on our new webpage. The Court is telling us

These Blue States Have Tried the Elizabeth Warren Model. Their Residents Are Fleeing.

Massachusetts Sen. Elizabeth Warren recently appeared on one of the late night talk shows, beating the class warfare drum and arguing for billions of dollars in new social programs paid for with higher taxes on millionaires and billionaires. In recent years, though, blue states such as California, Illinois, Delaware, Connecticut, Hawaii, Maryland and Minnesota adopted this very strategy, and they raised taxes on their wealthy residents. How did it work out? Almost all of these states lag behind the national average in growth of jobs and incomes.So, if income redistribution policies are the solution to shrinking the gap between rich and poor, why do they fail

Booze, babes, and EBT: Watchdog.org covers welfare abuse

Share

by Andrew Collins as Watchdog.org

The Washington Post recently ran a series of articles purporting to explain how welfare benefits are spent in America. They open with ledes like “Poverty looks pretty great if you’re not living in it,” and “There’s nothing fun about being on welfare, and a new Kansas bill aims to keep it that way.” The idea behind such pieces is to provide a counter-narrative to the “suspicion” that the poor use food stamps and other government benefits to buy luxury goods like lobster and filet mignon.

Absent from the Post’s coverage is clear, convincing data about how much abuse takes place when it comes to welfare spending. They skirt the obvious question: Can

Americans opting out of Common Core tests in droves

Share

from WND

Across the United States, concerned parents and students are refusing to participate in new tests aligned with the federal government’s Common Core state standards, and international journalist and educator Alex Newman could not be more excited about it.

“The explosive growth of the opt-out movement has been one extremely encouraging development in a sea of bad news when it comes to government education in the United States,” Newman told WND. “As more and more parents and teachers realize what is going on with Common Core, I expect this movement to continue growing by leaps and bounds.”

Newman, the co-author of “Crimes of the Educators: How Utopians are Using Government Schools to Destroy America’s Children,” believes Common Core and its

Christie fails to report income, avoids $152,000 in taxes

Share

By Mark Lagerkvist | New Jersey Watchdog

Gov. Chris Christie failed to report as income or pay taxes on $380,000 in expense allowances he received from the state, according to a New Jersey Watchdog examination of Treasury data and the governor’s tax returns.

By not declaring the allowances on their joint returns, Christie and his wife, Mary Pat, avoided roughly $152,000 in federal income taxes over four years.

Despite an exchange of emails, Christie’s press office did not offer comment.

UPDATE: Chris Christie’s press office responded Tuesday with the following statement: “The report on NJ watchdog is categorically false and irresponsible. The expense account, which has been provided to every governor in recent memory, is not salary and isn’t kept by the Governor

by Clare Foran at National Journal

(Disney)

Adm. Robert Papp, the U.S. top envoy to the Arctic, said Thursday that he is still in talks with Disney and hopes to use characters from the hit movie Frozen to raise awareness about climate change.

“We’re continuing discussions with Disney. I’m hopeful we’re going to get there,” Papp said at an event hosted by the Brookings Institution in Washington. “It’s a very good company, and they put out a good product, and I’d like to have them help us raise awareness.”

The United States is preparing to take the helm of the Arctic Council, an international forum with oversight of the polar region next month. Papp serves as the U.S. special representative to the

Obama admits communist ‘schooled’ him on white racism

Share

by CLIFF KINCAID at Renew America

In his 1995 book, Dreams from My Father, Barack Obama never discussed the identity of the mysterious “Frank” who had given him important advice on growing up black in what was described as a white racist world. We learned in 2008 that “Frank” was Frank Marshall Davis, a member of the Communist Party who was the subject of a 600-page FBI file. Still, the major media never asked Obama about this important relationship during his growing up years in Hawaii. Now, in an extraordinary development, video of Obama explicitly and openly identifying “Frank” as Frank Marshall Davis has suddenly surfaced on the Internet. The footage is said to have been recorded on September 20, 1995, with the program originally
