Former House Speaker John Boehner told FOX Business’ Neil Cavuto in an interview this week that he’s working to combat the looming pension crisis. He and former Rep. Joe Crowley are part of the Retirement Security Coalition, a group working to raise awareness of underfunded multiemployer benefit plans.

Since the Great Recession, nearly every state has made some changes to pension policy, according to Pew. Some have increased employee contributions, while others have changed the benefits available to new hires or reduced benefits. Still, there’s a funding gap of $1.28 trillion between the pensions’ assets and their total obligations to workers and retirees.

“The job Joe and I have taken on is to try to elevate the seriousness of this problem,” Boehner said. “And Congress really does in fact need to act.”

Boehner said millions of retirees’ pensions “are on the line.”

These are the states with the biggest pension funding gaps, according to Pew’s analysis:


33.9 percent funded

New Jersey

35.8 percent funded


38.4 percent funded


45.7 percent funded



Over time trash rots and the smelly it gets. Sometimes the odor leaches into surrounding environment and then you have a no-go zone. This is the beginning of a putrid mess. These types of occurrences call for a fumigator, garbage man or undertaker.

Many of you have been initiated to these situations. A bad apple spoils all in the barrel or that potato sack got to go. We have come across them before and quick action if not undertaken can only make these situations worse.

Somali Muslim Immigrants Stealing MILLIONS in Welfare from Minnesota

They came to the U.S. as supposed “refugees,” but now it has been discovered that a number of Somali immigrants are stealing hundreds of millions in American welfare money that they are literally shipping back to Africa stuffed in suitcases. Worse, the cash is going to fund the various Islamist terror armies there.

It has come to light that these Somali terrorists living among us have a long list of tactics to steal America’s benefits, but one was revealed by Fox 9 in Minneapolis with an investigation that found that Somalis were using a sham daycare center system to bilk the American people out of welfare cash.

During its 5-month investigation into the story, Fox 9 KMS tracked the funding flowing into the daycare center and found it was being sent outside the U.S. Fox also found “dozens” of other fraudulent centers doing the same thing.

But this has been going on for years already and everyone knew it.

In 2015 a Minneapolis woman was charged in a $14 million fraud case. But she fled back to Somali just before trial.

As AlphaNews reported in 2015:

Deqo daycare center, which had three locations in Apple Valley, St. Paul, and Minneapolis was shut down in 2013 due to licensing violations and prosecutors charged husband and wife Ahmed Aden Mohamed and Yasmin Abdulle Ali for bilking the state out of nearly $3.7 million, $3.1 million of which was collected from April 2012-January 2013. The duo had recruited more than 100 parents to enroll their own children in the program.

Could you remind us why, exactly, is it a bad thing to put a temporary halt to immigration from Muslim countries, again?

As KMSP reported:
On the morning of March 15, Fox 9 chased a tip about a man who was leaving the country. Sources said he took a carry-on bag through security that was packed with $1 million in cash. Travelers can do that, as long as they fill out the proper government forms.
Fox 9 learned that these cloak-and-dagger scenarios now happen almost weekly at MSP. The money is usually headed to the Middle East, Dubai and points beyond. Sources said last year alone, more than $100 million in cash left MSP in carry-on luggage.
And where is that cash going once it gets back to Somalia? For one, the terror group al Shabaab.
Kerns discovered some of the money was being funneled to a Hawala in the region of Somalia that is controlled by the al Shabaab terrorist group.
“I talked to a couple of sources who had lived in that region and I said, ‘If money is going to this Hawala do you think it is going to al Shabaab?’” said Kerns. “And he said, ‘Oh definitely, that area is controlled by al Shabaab, and they control the Hawala there.’”
He said when the money arrives, whether it was intended for legitimate purposes or not, al Shabaab or other groups demand a cut.

Maine charging Somali immigrants with welfare fraud Two Somali immigrants are being charged with welfare fraud for abusing Maine’s welfare system for their own profit to make tens of thousands between them.

“Two Maine men have been indicted on federal charges of defrauding the MaineCare health care program and with soliciting and receiving health care kickbacks over a roughly two-year period, federal prosecutors said, [and] both pleaded not guilty on Tuesday,” the Portland Press Herald reported. “The U.S. Attorney’s Office in Maine said a federal grand jury indicted Abdirashid Ahmed, 38, of Lewiston, and Garat Osman, 32, of Auburn, for allegedly getting kickbacks of up to $200 per referral of people to a specific health care provider.”
Somalis siphoning the system
Both men served as interpreters when defrauding the Pine Tree State’s health care system of thousands of dollars by submitting falsified information.
“The indictment also alleges that the health care provider – identified in documents as ‘Individual A ,’ – submitted fraudulent bills for interpreting services for patients’ appointments with the provider,” Breitbart News informed. “According to court documents, Ahmed is accused of receiving at least $23,700 in kickbacks for referring patients to the health care provider between November 2015 and last December. According to court filings, Osman received nearly $7,000.”
The immigrants from the African war-torn terrorist hotbed nation grossly overcharged the state for their services on a regular basis.
“The indictment said that the health care provider’s bills indicated that interpreting services were provided for about two hours when the appointments were actually much shorter – usually about half an hour,” Breitbart’s Michael Patrick Leahy noted. “MaineCare reimburses for interpreting services at a rate of $20 for each 15-minute interval.”
Somalis relocating to Maine
Both men had the backing of the Somali community while they were being charged for their fraudulent behavior in court.
“More than two dozen men and women from the Somali community sat in the gallery
 to show their support for the two men,” the Sun Journal recounted.
Besides Minnesota, Maine has been one of Somali refugees’ favorite states, as first noted in 2016.
“Maine has one of the highest per-capita rates of Somali refugee resettlement in the country, behind only Minnesota – which also has recently seen charges of Somali welfare fraud – and North Dakota,” Leahy pointed out. “Exactly 97,385 Somali refugees have been resettled in the United States in the 15 years since FY 2002, of which 15,710 were resettled in Minnesota – more than any other state in the country, according to the [U.S. State Department].”
Other parts of the country with thousands refugees from the Islamic terrorist-harboring nation include some of America’s most populated states.
“Trailing Minnesota in the top ten states for Somali refugee resettlement since FY 2002 are Ohio (7,551), Texas (7,195), New York (6,169), Arizona (5,682), Georgia (4,113), California (3,731), Missouri (3,246), Massachusetts (3,156) and Tennessee (2,958),” Leahy noted. “Minnesota also leads the country in the number of Somali refugees resettled over these 15 years on a per-capita basis, with 286.2 Somali refugees resettled per 100,000 residents of the state – the state’s 2015 population was 5.5 million.”
The Somali population explosion in Maine is only rivaled by two other northern border states.
“Only two states come close to Minnesota’s per-capita Somali refugee resettlement number – North Dakota and Maine,” Leahy added. “North Dakota experienced a 131.7 Somali refugee resettlement rate per 100,000 residents (997 refugees over 15 years in a state with a 2015 population of 756,927). Maine experienced a 117.9 Somali refugee resettlement rate per 100,000 residents – 1,568 refugees over 15 years in a state with a 2015 population of 1.3 million)”
And criminal behavior has also followed Somali refugees to Minnesota.
“[Allegations were made this month] in Minnesota [against] Somali immigrants [who] were [allegedly] engaged in a $100 million daycare fraud,” Leahy recounted.
Serious crimes …
The state is taking the charges against the Somali immigrants very seriously, as U.S. District Court Magistrate Judge John Rich III seized Ahmed’s passport before releasing him on a $5,000 bond.
“Rich said Ahmed would be equipped with an electronic monitoring device to ensure he does not leave Androscoggin County,” the Sun Journal’s Christopher Williams noted. “Ahmed was kept Monday night in federal custody at Cumberland County Jail. He was expected to be escorted Tuesday morning to Lewiston and released into the custody of the U.S. Probation Office. “
Substantial jail time and fines are also anticipated for the Somali criminals in Maine.
“If convicted, Ahmed and Osman each face up to 10 years in prison, three years of supervised release and a $250,000 fine, [and] each may also be ordered to pay restitution to MaineCare,” the Press Herald’s Edward D. Murphy explained. “Assistant U.S. Attorney Daniel J. Perry said Tuesday he couldn’t comment on whether additional charges may be coming and whether more arrests may occur in this case.”

Bauer: Evidence indicts ‘The Squad,’ et al.
Friday, July 19, 2019
 | Chad Groening (OneNewsNow.com)

The four Democratic lawmakers are among the almost 100 members of the Congressional Progressive Caucus, which Gary Bauer says is on board with “The Squad.”
“I think the evidence is growing that on the progressive left there is a complete
 rejection of the American nation,” says the president of American Values. “They do not believe we were ever a great country. No matter how many advances we make in racial reconciliation and ensuring rights for all Americans, they are never satisfied.”
Bauer argues that the far left believes America is an evil nation.
“They reject free markets; they embrace socialism. They believe America was built on slavery [and] genocide. They routinely attack law enforcement, the American military, our border guards,” he lists. “And they use language that you would expect from enemies of the United States – not from fellow Americans who merely want to reform or improve the United States.”
Bauer says it’s unfortunate that the four freshman Democrats have so much influence and power because they represent the views of a significant percentage of the Democrat Party’s base as well as that of a growing portion of the American population.
What exactly is Omar calling for?
Another aspect of America that at least some “progressives” struggle with is its close
relationship with Israel. OneNewsNow spoke with a pro-Israel activist who is concerned over what Congresswoman Ilhan Omar – who yesterday vowed to be Donald Trump’s “nightmare” in the coming months – means when she likens the BDS movement against Israel to Germany’s boycott of the Jews leading up to World War II.
Omar and her fellow Democratic Congresswoman Rashida Tlaib – both of whom are Muslim – have introduced a resolution supporting the Boycott, Sanctions, Divestment (BDS) movement against Israel. Omar argues that the right to boycott is an expression of free speech, and she cited examples of boycott movements involving Nazi Germany, the Soviet Union, and apartheid South Africa.
Laurie Cardoza-Moore, president of Proclaiming Justice to the Nations, is aghast at the implications.

“Ilhan Omar [and] Rashida Tlaib are calling for [Americans] – like the Nazis boycotted the Jews and the Jewish businesses – not to shop in Jewish stores. She is basically calling to reinstate what the German Nazis did to the Jews,” she states.
That German boycott led to the “Kristallnacht: The Night of Broken Glass” – a Nazi pogram of violent protests that plundered and destroyed Jewish businesses and homes.
“Is that what Ilhan Omar is supporting? The Nazi Germans were boycotting the Jews who lived in Germany – and it wasn’t long after that that they started to kill the Jews,” notes Cardoza-Moore. “Is that what Ilhan Omar is suggesting? Is that what she is calling for?”
She predicts this is going to backfire on the Democrats.


Playing both ends to the middle don’t work when it comes to friends. Turkey’s Erdogan, a sleazy diminutive type wannabee Napoleon Bonaparte, was given the door today. The U.S. slammed the dictator, hard! You can only taunt us so much says President Trump; the time has come to clip your nuts.

The Turkish Foreign Ministry responded to the United States’ decision to remove Turkey from the F-35 fighter jet program, saying it is ‘not fair,’ and will harm strategic ties between two NATO allies.

“The U.S. and other F-35 partners are aligned in this decision to suspend Turkey from the program and initiate the process to formally remove Turkey from the program,” said Ellen Lord, the under secretary of defense for acquisition and sustainment.

“The United States is spending between $500 and $600 million in non-recurring engineering in order to shift the supply chain,” she said.

Used by NATO and other U.S. allies, the F-35 stealth fighter jet is the world’s most advanced jet fighter. Washington is concerned that deploying the S-400 with the F-35 would allow Russia to gain too much inside information of the stealth system.

Make no mistake about it, the suicide bombers et-al are preaching anarchy, violation of our Constitution, sparking violence by incitement and condoning sanctuary states and cities including harboring illegal aliens; many of them are wanted criminals.

The oath they took to obey the Constitution was only words. They never, in the light of day, did they take that oath literally. They should be incarcerated for violating that oath. The United States is a country of laws, they must be obeyed. Anarchy prevails if members of Congress find it not to their liking, they only have one choice, try to change it. Until then our laws must be obeyed for us to survive. Apparently, the suicide bombers obey only the laws they condone, violating laws they find unpalatable.

This is not something to be taken lightly. Been going on for years, that is the denigration of the White Man for a multitude of reasons; from slavery to Viet Nam, from waging war in Iran, Pakistan, Afghanistan and Iraq, from yesterday to today. White progressives have been called out for not joining the calls for equality. But lets tell it like it is. If it wasn’t for the generosity of the White Man, those clamoring for equality would still be living in the sewer pit they came from.

Now that the race card is being played to a hilt, which includes all colors, the White Man does not know where he stands. Will he be the next target? We don’t know the answer yet, but soon the racists in our midst will call for the obvious race war. The war they are raging slowly but surely. Subterfuge of the Trump administration started on day one. Be prepared, you may be the next target.


Democrats have nothing, they are nothing, they do nothing. So now you know the reason why they always pull the RACE CARD. The Republican party has been running a small but effective campaign in peeling off middle of the road Democrats. These newly minted Republicans are sick and tired of the leadership forcing unpopular policies and directives down their throats. Their also fed up with Democrat Sanctuary cities and state strong holds going against the popular wisdom of the middle of the road voters. Illegal immigration is the number one topic heading the list. Taxes are number two, runaway government is number three.

Trump tweets “go back to where you came from”. Wow, he stirred up a hornets nest, didn’t he? They call him racist, homophobic, misogynistic; every name under the sun. It so happens these progressive know-it-alls have berated America, denigrated America, debased America, are persons of color. If they were White he would have told them the same thing. Case closed.


The Jerusalem Post - Israel News

US President Donald Trump slammed unnamed Democratic congresswomen for criticizing US democracy when they hail from countries “whose governments are a complete and total catastrophe” in a thread of tweets on Sunday. 

“So interesting to see ‘Progressive’ Democrat Congresswomen, who originally came from countries whose governments are a complete and total catastrophe, the worst, most corrupt and inept anywhere in the world (if they even have a functioning government at all), now loudly and viciously telling the people of the United States, the greatest and most powerful Nation on earth, how our government is to be run,” Trump wrote.Read More Related Articles

The progressive agenda was in the planning stages for years. The teachers union realized that they could mold the minds of our youth; Hitler and Mao utilized similar tactics. Ideas planted in young minds at an early age by the education system ruled by unions, agendas planned by progressive supported educators became the paradigm. Their high handed tactics easily won the day. There was no second choice. All competition was brutalized through techniques recommended by “Rules for Radicals.”

City after city caved to progressive demands. This was made possible by the ever enlarging democrat mayors and governors who were puppets of union thugs. Down at the school level courses were designed to mold the brains of innocent youth. Socialism became every popular as a subject, environmentalism ruled the day, immigration policies began to take center stage. No longer was the Pledge of Allegiance required. This was the start of Americas march toward socialism.

The continued agenda reached out to the minorities, gathering critical mass along the way. Minority leaders were recruited by the progressive Democrats to run for high profile positions. Blacks were now seated as governors, mayors, city councils and alderman persons. Then the Latino community began their march to power. Los Angeles is the quintessential example. Bilingual education became the norm.

The progressive social agenda became radicalized with the likes of Mayor di Blasio from New York and Andrew Cuomo who followed in the footsteps of his socialist father as governor. Chicago, Los Angeles, Baltimore became unhinged. It spread like wildfire. Rappers started to pick up the city beat. Songs were now sewn with urban jargon; whore became ho etc. It didn’t take long for this type of behaviour to become mainstream. With the internet all things became possible, from A to Z. Liberalism became the fruit of the day. Policing was no longer possible. They became the enemy of the people. Obama weighed in with more gasoline on the already hot cinders.

And so we are come to today. The political Rubicon has been crossed. Trump has set a new course, one that is about to crush the progressive march forward. But it ain’t easy. Liberal judges, say the 9th circuit, are trying their best to stop the Trump machine. Maybe they can for a few months, but the tanks will roll across the liberal landscape bringing back law and order as it once was. That is what the Antifa crowd is afraid of; these radicals are not for peace, but for anarchy.

The illegal crusade to break into our country is the latest attempt to destroy our country. Trump is the only barrier left to stop this slug fest. Sanctuary cities are providing safe harbor for criminals of all types. State and city governors and mayors are in violation of laws. They must be stopped at any cost; jail is the only alternative to these criminals. Sworn to uphold the Constitution is not something they take seriously. Federal agents need to bring it on. Jail them, one after another, round them up is our only choice. It must be done for us and future generations.

But to top off all of the above, we now have Muslim suicide bombers in Congress. These types are sewing antisemitic diatribe, anti Israel and Zionist propaganda as never before. And AOC clammers that Pelosi is anti people of color. The war has begun, believe us when we tell you. Watch out because the Democrat party is about to implode. We shall see if the moderates can prevail, but it is highly unlikely. Others, trying to make a name for themselves among the radical left are fanning the flames.



Denying Denial

A year-and-a-half ago, in February, 2018, I wrote a column entitled, The 51st State: Denial (https://canadafreepress.com/article/the-51st-state-denial; https://www.renewamerica.com/columns/oberndorf/180219), in which I discussed a number of serious problem areas and issues. People seemed to have trouble grasping the depth of the problems or who was causing them, and why. I suggested that this was denial: Denial is a psychological condition where the person or persons suffering from it refuse to acknowledge that a problem or reality exists. Not much has changed since then, except that the problems have gotten worse and new ones have arisen. And while more of We, the People, have regained sanity, denial still reigns virtually unchallenged in Washington, D.C.

I mentioned the “mainstream” media, calling them the Ministry of Leftist Propaganda. Since then, they have dropped all pretense of being unbiased, or even journalism. There is hardly anything produced by them today, whether in print, on TeeVee, or online, that is not riddled with outrageous, hate-filled lies, slander, libel, and thinly veiled incitements to violence. They, and their politician co-conspirators on the left have lied for and about, and covered up for blatant terrorist groups like Antifa and Black Lives Matter, allowing them to commit acts of violent terrorism with impunity. Although, President Donald Trump is the ostensible target, ultimately it is We, the People, that they are hell-bent on destroying. The leftist media have gone from propaganda to active subversion.

I mentioned, too, the plethora of politicians who run and fool people into voting for them by posing as “moderates” and conservatives. On arriving in D.C., they throw aside the costumes and stand revealed as, not Supermen, but lying, bought-and-paid-for stooges and running dogs of the fascist/communist/globalist left. Like Charlie Brown and the football, far too many Americans have still not caught on. And the politicians continue to loot the public treasury for the benefit of their multi-millionaire and billionaire “donors” – the correct term should be “owners” – and themselves. Will we ever see a time when an elected or upper management official does not leave government far, far richer than when they entered?

I also pointed out the denial of the radical left’s control of Lenin’s Big Three: Education, the News Media, and Entertainment. The left’s jackbooted control of education, through what is possibly the most radical leftist union in the world, the National Education Association (NEA) continues virtually unimpeded. America’s children are no longer taught, they are brainwashed and indoctrinated, socially engineered by self-identified “change agents”. Children in pre-school are being led down the path of mental illness by being made to believe that they can be any gender, or combination of genders, and then pushed to choose. Really sick stuff, and it’s going on in schools all over the country. This on top of the grow percentage of students who are being “graduated” who are functionally illiterate. As has been pointed out, they can’t even fill out a job application. What Americans in denial can’t grasp is that this doesn’t matter to the NEA, since the totalitarian collectivist government they so ardently long for will assign them to their jobs, and everything else in their dumbed-down, totally controlled lives.

I talked, too, about the insanely outrageous murder rate in our Democrat-run Urban Paradises, and the mealy-mouthed politicians’ equally insanely outrageous claims that they are unable to do much about it. The situation has worsened, since we now have illegal aliens/invaders joining the black and Hispanic gangbangers in murdering, raping, robbing, and beating innocent victims, and drunken illegal alien drivers killing and maiming thousands. Democrats, however, and apparently a majority of elected Republicans, don’t seem to see this as a problem, much less a “crisis”. More Americans have died at the hands of illegal invaders than died in Iraq, and by the way, in Mexico, the source of most of the invaders and the enabler of the rest, around 70,000 people have been murdered, just in the last two years. That’s way more than the 58,000 American soldiers who died in the entire Vietnam War. Mexico, our next-door-neighbor and a major trading partner, has descended into virtual anarchy, but not a peep of concern from Washington.

I concluded the column with a couple of statements regarding the media, the Democrats, and their supporters that bear repeating:

However, what seems to be the area of deepest denial is the fact that these individuals and groups are NOT a loyal opposition, are NOT patriotic Americans who simply have a different viewpoint, are NOT people with America’s best interests at heart, and that the goal of ALL of these traitors is the imposition of a totalitarian, collectivist police state. Serious denial.

One last area of denial: that these problems will go away by themselves, or that someone else will fix them for us. Fatal denial.

A year-and-a-half of continued denial and negligent neglect have allowed these problems to fester and worsen, to metastasize like fatal cancers on the body of our once healthy nation. While President Trump has performed miracles, he can’t do it all. We, the People, need to lose our fear of getting active. We need to learn civil disobedience, and stop doing what radical leftist judges demand that we must. We need to stop voting for establishment-supported candidates. We need to tell government, in no uncertain terms, that it is WE, THE MAJORITY, who are offended, by their actions and inaction, and we are not going to allow it anymore. PERIOD!


The runt size pest is at it again. Israel must be licking their chops. The United States John Bolton is preparing for separation. President Trump is about to cleave the diminutive anti United States and Jew hater like no one has before.

You heard about the python that bit off more than it could chew, Turkey is about to feel how hard it is to digest the United States. In the coming weeks, perhaps days, we will find Turkey on the NATO outs; why defend this criminal dog Erdogan when at every turn he blasts us? About time his nuts were clipped.

An Israeli jet at the ready

The ministry said the first delivery of the S-400 air defense systems arrived on Friday at an air base near the capital, Ankara.
