The Democrats' Anti-Gun Manual Exposed - American Thinker - A shocking new report reveals a deliberate plan by Democrats to exploit incidents of gun violence to their advantage. As Rahm Emanuel said, "You never let a serious crisis go to waste. And what I mean by that it's an opportunity to do things you think you could not do before." In other words, forget the facts of cases, the circumstances surrounding them, or even the victims themselves; just take advantage of circumstances and current events to push your agenda. Or, as the manual puts it: "The most powerful time to communicate is when concern and emotions are running at their peak." Regarding the issue of gun control, the Democrats are prepared; they published an 80-page manual titled "Preventing Gun Violence Through Effective Messaging" that instructs users on how to exploit the emotions resulting from horrific incidents to attack the National Rifle Association (NRA), supporters of the Second Amendment, and gun owners -- ways to take advantage of events to get around the constitutional right to bear arms.

(2) Treasury: Federal Tax Policy Extends to Legal Same-Sex Marriags Regardless of State - Washington Examiner - The Treasury Department announced Thursday that it will treat legally married same-sex couples as married for federal tax purposes, regardless of whether the state the couple lives in recognizes gay marriage. In a press release, Treasury Secretary Jacob Lew said that “today’s ruling provides certainty and clear, coherent tax filing guidance for all legally married same-sex couples nationwide.” The ruling will mean that the federal government treats legally married same-sex couples as married wherever marriage interacts with federal tax law, not just for income tax purposes. The ruling is relevant for tax filing status, IRA contributions and tax credits like the earned income tax credit and the child tax credit, according to the Treasury. Anyone in a legally recognized same-sex marriage must file as “married filing jointly” or “married filing separately” for 2013. Individuals who would have been eligible to file as married under the provision can submit an amended tax return for the years 2010, 2011, and 2012 to get a refund that would have been owed.

(3) Common Core: What's in it for Bill Gates? - American Thinker - Why has Bill Gates spent millions of dollars to develop, promote, and fund the establishment of Common Core standards and testing in U.S. public schools? To set the record straight, Common Core is not about "core knowledge" but rather is the foundation for left-wing student indoctrination to create activists for the social justice agenda. Education is being nationalized, just like our healthcare, to eliminate local control over education, imposing a one-size-fits-all, top-down curriculum that will also affect private schools and homeschoolers. Being in the business of contributing to educational technologies for decades, Microsoft chairman Bill Gates has a much vested interest in education. Great concern has been expressed over the years regarding the driving force behind Gates and his organizations, which have demonstrated unflagging support of many leftist causes. Lamenting that Obama's powers are too limited, Gates stated at a Politico event that, "Some days, I wish we had a system like the U.K. where, you know, the party in power could do a lot and you know, you'd see how it went and then fine, you could un-elect them." The Bill and Melinda Gates Foundation cast a long shadow across America. It is dangerously influencing American education as it funnels money to a vast number of entities. Read more........

(4) Planned Parenthood to Receive Over $655,000 as 'Navigators' for Obamacare - Heritage Foundation -This morning, the Obama Administration announced the award of over $655,000 in taxpayer grants to three Planned Parenthood affiliates to act as “navigators,” helping enroll Americans in federally facilitated insurance exchanges under Obamacare. Those grants are part of $67 million in federal funds that will go to over 100 organizations to help promote the health care law. Planned Parenthood clinics across the country could stand to receive even larger influxes of taxpayer dollars from state and federal coffers as more of Obamacare is implemented. As Heritage’s Alyene Senger points out, fears of low enrollment in Obamacare exchanges have prompted both federal and state governments to begin funding an army of taxpayer-compensated community groups that will facilitate entrance into the health care marketplaces.
