End Citizens United Passion on Changing the Politics of USA

Posted by JacobT on

End Citizens United is a political action Committee aimed at funding political campaigns. The firm was started in March 1st, 2015 and gets its donations from grassroots donors. Their main goal is to prove that the grassroots can also fight against the billionaires who are trying to rule the world. By financing these campaigns, they ensure that the elected members are not controlled by the billionaires making them dedicated to serving the citizens.

End Citizens United’s mission is to destroy and end the rigged political system and combating the Big Money in politics. By so doing, they ensure that leaders elected will overturn Citizens United, end unlimited money in politics and dark money. To attain their mission, the End Citizens United will elect pro-reform candidates, ensure that the issue of raising money in politics has been made a national priority and use the grassroots membership to demonstrate political power.

The End Citizens United supports Democrats who believe in the grassroots donors and campaigns. The aspirant must also be willing to fight and overturn Citizens United. End Citizens United support Democrats because they believe that Democrats are devoted to fighting against Citizens United. They also believe that the Democrats will bring meaningful change in the United States.

According to MSNBC End Citizens United was looking to make its name popular in the 2016’s political campaign. Its main goal was to finance a many Democrats’ aspirants running in competitive House and Senate races across the United States. During its inception in August 2015, the group had raised $2 million in small donations and was looking to get more than $30 million throughout the campaign season.

The main goal of End Citizens United was to pass a constitutional amendment to change a law passed in 2010 that allows super PACs and dark money to support and engage in politics. The number of supporters has greatly increased in the past one year. The group started by supporting 11 Democratic candidates such as former Sen. Russ Feingold of Wisconsin among others.

Keeping in mind that no constitutional amendment has been passed since 1992, passing the amendment can turn out to be a very intriguing for the Democrats. For this to be successful, they must win the consent of from two-thirds of the Senate and the House. According to Rich Hasen, a professor of law and political science at UC-Irvine school of Law, End Citizens United must work hard to enforce an amendment as this would result in public awareness of the Supreme Court. The group believes it has to stop the PAGs and will make sure that it gets the Senate representation for the amendment to be enacted.

Rona Borre is the Cinderella of the Staffing Industry

Posted by JacobT on

Rona Borre is the CEO and founder of staffing and recruiting company Instant Alliance in Chicago, Illinois. Borre started the company from a spare bedroom in her Chicago Condo in 2001, after having worked at a large, global staffing firm where she broke all of the sales records.

Borre discovered that most staffing companies have a fatal flaw when it comes to hiring good people. This is especially a factor when it comes to the types of professionals Instant Alliance places, such as technology and finance professionals.

The flaw is that most staffing firms don’t form meaningful and permanent relationships with their clients. Borre and her people are adamant about getting to know all the main players of the client, and who and what kind of candidate do they want to hire? Will the candidate fit into the company culture?  For further reference, check vimeo.com.

Once these questions are answered, Borre and her team go and find that particular person, regardless of where he or she might be located. The result is so good that there is only a 1% attrition rate of candidates placed from Instant Alliance.  More of this on instantalliance.com.

NBA Franchises

Bruce Levenson and AHBE Sue Major Insurance Company AIG

Posted by JacobT on

A recent lawsuit filed by the former owners of basketball’s Atlanta Hawks is alleging breach of contract. The case involves claims lodged by Danny Ferry, the former manager of the team. AHBE and Ferry came to a buyout agreement for an undisclosed amount on June 22, 2015. This effectively put an end to a business relationship that started with an $18 million contract over six years starting in 2012. The sale of the franchise was approved two days later. The plaintiffs in the case are part of the group called The Atlanta Hawks Basketball and Entertainment LLC (AHBE). The lawsuit was filed against New Hampshire Insurance Company (AIG).

The civil suit was filed on Sept. 13, 2016, reports Time Magazine, in the Superior Court of Fulton County. AHBE partners allege that they had AIG coverage for specific employment practice losses, which included Wrongful Termination. The amount of the claim is being held in confidentiality. According to the suit, AIG is refusing to acknowledge the AHBE claim and is refusing participation in defending said claims. The suit also claims that AIG refused to make the payment due for the covered loss and did so in bad faith with no compelling justification.

None of the current ownership partners are involved in the lawsuit, only the former partners in the AHBE group. Bruce Levenson was a controlling partner in AHBE and is also a partner and co-founder of United Communications Group (UGC), which was founded in 1977 with his partner, Ed Peskowitz. Bruce also is one of the owners of Atlanta Spirit, LLC. Previously, he was a writer for Observer Publishing and the Washington Star, as well as being a TechTarget, Inc. director and serving on the Newsletter and Electronic Publishers Association’s board of directors.

David Giertz, Financial Expert Speaks Out on the Social Security Issue

Posted by JacobT on

David Giertz is a financial retirement expert with 30 years of experience in the field. He recently had an interview where he stated that most advisors are not talking to their clients about their Social Security Retirement Benefits. There was a survey done on Facebook that advised clients about social security. There are, it seems, 2700 rules in the social security handbook that the advisors are not adept at.

David Giertz began to be recognized in 2004 when he was made vice president of NF Sales, where he stayed until 2009. From 2009 until 2013 he was vice president of FI/WH, then in 2013, he was made the president of Nationwide Financial Distributors, Inc. David Giertz is also, in Nationwide, the President, Senior Vice President, and Director in other sectors of the company.

People who are either already retired or are approaching retirement age have a lot of misconception and misunderstanding where Social Security is concerned. Social Security on Bloomberg was not designed to live on completely in our older years but as a fund to assist in your retirement years. So, it is extremely important to have a retirement plan in place to follow.

The pensions that our grandparents and maybe our parents received are dying out now. This makes it more important than it ever was for people now to create a retirement income plan, which includes, the maximizing of Social Security benefits at https://giertzmusic.wordpress.com/. Nationwide Retirement Institute conducted a study which shows that 30 percent of people who are already retired are getting less that was expected, and this number is up from 2015.

One of the biggest misconceptions on on moneytips.com is that because you can draw Social Security when you turn 62 you should. If you do not wait until you are 65, your monthly payment will be reduced by 25 percent. When you reach 65 you can earn whatever you can and there are no restrictions or taxes.

Betsy Devos, A Life for Equal Opportunities

Posted by JacobT on

President Donald Trump’s choice for education secretary is one of the main activists for the implementation of a model that gives parents the total freedom to decide where their children are studying.

Betsy DeVos resisted signing the waiver of the rule while asserting that she “felt uncomfortable” because of the potential damage that could be caused by the repeal of this rule for transgender students. She has been engaged in causes for students and families, focusing on those less fortunate, and being a firm advocate for equal rights for all students and development programs that would help make the school system more inclusive and egalitarian for all.

She is married to Dick DeVos, son of the co-founder of Amway Corporation, one of the 30 largest unlisted companies in the US. The DeVos family fortune is estimated at $ 5.1 billion, according to Forbes. And like other tycoons, she is committed to giving back to society through a hundred initiatives, charities, and programs, for which the DeVoss family is also known as one of the major donors in the United States.

She has spent decades struggling to increase the educational opportunities for all students through her philanthropic and promotional work. This examiner and philanthropist are immersed in the process of testifying before the Senate Health, Education and Labor Committee (HELP), answering questions and offering senators a more detailed vision of how she seeks to lead one of the largest government agencies. Read her interview with Philantrophy Table.

DeVos has spent millions of dollars of her money to help parents, families, and students mobilize for greater access to quality schools. Thanks to their generosity, many people have been able to fight against a slow-moving status quo and still leave behind too many students, especially those with low incomes and of Hispanic and African-American origin.

She supports the expansion of charter schools that have become so popular among minority families. Many low-income families are sending their children to charter schools, which are public schools that operate with greater freedom and autonomy. Among those who benefit from this possibility are many Afro-American and Hispanic families, who try to flee from public schools plagued by conflict and delinquency. Above all, her primary focus is to make the education system more inclusive and to bring education closer to parents, because she believes the actual system alienates parents from what their children are being taught, especially in regions where crime and gangs have been rising in the past 10 years, and she is a firm believer that the numbers will go down once education is available to all.

Betsy DeVos believes that there is a long list of things to do to enact major reforms that transform the educational status quo and expressed being committed to giving much of the authority and responsibility to states regarding educational policy.
