Records Show IRS and Elections Commission Colluded Against Conservative Groups - Newsmax - Embattled IRS official Lois Lerner and an attorney for the Federal Elections Commissions appear to have colluded against at least one conservative group applying for tax-exempt status, reports the National Review Online. House Ways and Means Committee chairman Dave Camp, a Michigan Republican, and oversight-subcommittee chairman Charles Boustany, a Louisiana Republican, are calling on the IRS to release all communications between the agency and the FEC between 2008 and 2012. "The American public is entitled to know whether the IRS is inappropriately sharing their confidential tax information with other agencies," they wrote in a letter they are reportedly sending to acting IRS administrator Danny Werfel. A lawyer from the FEC's enforcement division received tax information about the status of the conservative American Future Fund. The attorney reportedly then recommended the FEC prosecute the group for violations of campaign-finance law. The timing of the correspondence suggests that the lawyer obtained the information in order to influence the FEC's vote for conservative groups' applying for tax-exempt status, the National Review Online reports. But in its recommendation, the general counsel's office reportedly did not tell the election agency's six commissioners how it had obtained the information about the group's tax-exempt status. The office is prohibited under law from conducting an investigation into an organization before the commissioners have voted to do so.  Read more........  Article contributed by Steve Peters.

















(2) John Whitehead: Turning Public Schools Into Forts - Washington Times -  As surveillance cameras, metal detectors, police patrols, zero-tolerance policies, lockdowns, drug-sniffing dogs and strip searches become the norm in elementary, middle and high schools across the nation, America is on a fast track to raising up an Orwellian generation — one populated by compliant citizens accustomed to living in a police state and who march in lockstep to the dictates of the government. Yet as I point out in my book, “A Government of Wolves: The Emerging American Police State,” with every school police raid and overzealous punishment that is carried out in the name of school safety, the lesson being imparted is that Americans — especially young people — have no rights at all against the state or the police. Indeed, the majority of schools today have adopted an all-or-nothing lockdown mindset that leaves little room for freedom, individuality or due process.  Read more.........


Hannity' investigates high school course material. Does Fla. textbook contain pro-Islam bias? 

(3) Textbook Praises Islam, Denigrates Christianity - Townhall - A world history book used in an Advanced Placement class is under review by a Florida school board over allegations it favors Islam at the expense of Christianity and Judaism. State Rep. Ritch Workman told Fox News the Prentice World History textbook rewrites Islamic history and presents a biased version of the Muslim faith. “The book has a 36-page chapter on Islam but no chapters on Christianity or Judaism,” Workman said. “It’s remarkably one-sided.” The textbook is being used in an Advanced Placement class in Brevard County schools. The book is on a state-approved list and has been used in the school system for the past three years without any complaints. Workman said he received a copy of the book and he said it’s clear the authors “make a very obvious attempt not to insult Islam by reshaping history.” “If you don’t see it from the eyes of a parent, kids are going to take this book as gospel and believe that Christians and Jews were murderous barbarians and thank God the Muslims came along and the world is great,” he said. For example, Workman said a reference to Mohammed and his armies taking over Medina states, “people happily accepted Islam as their way of life.” Read more........


(4) Obama's HUD to Expand Middle Class - American Thinker - How? Just move people from low income neighborhoods into middle class neighborhoods. This brilliant stratagem is being promoted by Shaun Donovan, Obama's newly appointed head of HUD. According to Donovan, the middle class is the middle class because they have all the advantages of living in middle class neighborhoods. After all, middle class neighborhoods have better "schools, jobs, transportation, and other important neighborhood resources that can play a role in helping people move into the middle class." Move people from low income neighborhoods with poor "assets" into neighborhoods with good "assets" and presto they will have middle class jobs and all the other "assets" of being in the middle class. Not only is this economically sound, it follows from the moral principle that every American has the right "to choose to live in a community they feel proud of." That being the case, not only is it immoral to discriminate on the housing front on the basis of ethnicity and sexuality, it is equally immoral to discriminate on the basis of ability to pay. Under HUD"s new "Fair Housing" plan, HUD, one way or another, will make sure taxpayers eat the tab for this brilliant piece of social engineering.. Unlike the old failed Housing Choice Voucher (HCV) program, this one under HUD Secretary Shaun Donovan is going to work because Donovan is going to use "21st Century methods" Read more.......
