Ben Carson: Obama ‘Would’ve Had a Seizure’ If Oregon Gunman Killed Muslims – Newsmax  …  “Dr. Ben Carson says President Barack Obama would have suffered a ‘seizure’ if the gunman who targeted Christians as he shot up an Oregon college last week had singled out Muslims instead. ‘He would’ve had a seizure over it,’ Carson told Steve Malzberg in an exclusive interview that aired Tuesday on Newmax TV.  Remember, he’s been very reticent to mention Christians in the Middle East who are being massacred as well.'”

“‘I’m not sure why he has so much trouble actually articulating the words. It does make you wonder a little bit.’ In the Oregon tragedy, Chris Harper-Mercer, 26, reportedly asked his victims if they were Christians before executing his English professor and eight students at Umpqua Community College in rural Roseburg.”

Pennsylvania Governor Calls For 16 Percent Increase on State Income Tax – Daily Caller  …   “Pennsylvania Gov. Tom Wolf released his budget plan Tuesday which calls for steep tax hikes in an attempt to balance the budget without major spending cuts. The Democrat’s proposal includes a 16 percent increase in the state income tax, changing the rate from 3.07 percent to 3.57 percent, which the governor says would not impact seniors since it doesn’t affect retirement income. The administration says, if passed, the plan would raise $1.4 billion in the current fiscal year and an addition $2.4 by the time the 2017 fiscal year is completed.”

“In addition to closing the $1.2 structural deficit in the Keystone state, it would allocate $400 million in funds toward the education system. ‘Despite the fact that the majority of hard-working Pennsylvanians cannot afford Gov. Wolf’s massive tax and spending plans, he continues to push for them,’ Pennsylvania Senate President Pro Tempore Joe Scarnati said in a statement. ‘Not once – but twice now – the General Assembly has met our constitutional obligation to pass a balanced budget, yet Gov. Wolf refused to sign them because they didn’t include his billions of dollars of tax increases.'”

U.S. Government Provides Citizenship Test Study Guides In Spanish – Daily Caller  …   “Immigrants looking to become naturalized U.S. citizens can now study for the civics portion of the test in Spanish, courtesy of U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Services. Aspiring citizens can find study sheets, flash cards and audio tools in Spanish at USCIS.gov to help them prepare for the 100-question civics test, which must be taken in English. ‘Prepare for your naturalization test – take our interactive Quizzes in Spanish!’ a separate October USCIS blog post promoting the material says. Complete interactive tests in Spanish and other languages are on the way.”

“The Obama administration is in the midst of a massive push to market citizenship to immigrants and refugees ahead of the 2016 election. The White House Task Force on New Americans, created by executive order in 2014, is behind a series of new initiatives aimed at ensuring they have the tools, support and encouragement they need to apply for citizenship.”
