TOP STORY: The self-loathing of the “One-Percenters” continues today with Microsoft Founder Bill Gates proposing a new tax on the rich. Cliff Kincaid has the shocking details “When Barack Obama was a senator, he proposed a Global Poverty Act to fulfill the U.N.’s Millennium Development Goals. The cost in additional foreign aid: $845 billion. On Thursday, as part of the G20 summit, Bill Gates, co-chair of the Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation, delivered a report on ‘financing for development’ that proposes global taxes on America and other “rich” nations to make the Global Poverty Act a reality.” http://bit.ly/soxKC7
IN CASE YOU MISSED IT: Our recent video has begun to catch the attention of national press by exposing Occupy _____’s actual unwillingness to work. Glenn Beck’s The Blaze, Andrew Breitbart’s BIG Sites, The Stage Right Show, WBAL AM Radio Baltimore and the DC FOX affiliate have all credited AIM with performing ACTUAL journalism. Stay tuned.
MEDIA WATCH: Chris Matthews is seriously concerned about President Obama’s chances for securing a second electoral victory. Don Irvine reports: “In [Monday] night’s editorial on Hardball, host Chris Matthews expressed his frustration with the lack of passion from Obama’s supporters including his own cabinet, and the need to build an Obama party before it’s too late.” If ever you had any doubt that a former democratic Capitol Hill staffer and MSNBC anchor couldn’t be objective, reinforcements have arrived. http://bit.ly/sbOO1T

ELECTION 2012: It’s day 4 of Caingate with an over-night twist to make the Republican primary even uglier. The Cain camp alleged that Texas Governor Rick Perry is behind the whole thing. Step one: denial. “An adviser to Rick Perry’s presidential campaign says he never had a conversation with Herman Cain about sexual harassment, contrary to Cain’s assertion.” Click for full details http://bit.ly/v8NjRm
WHAT WE’RE READING: So much for peaceful protesting. Oakland, California continues to earn its bad reputation as AIM guest columnist Michelle Malkin suggested with disturbing reports from Oakland PD: “A peaceful protest that shut down the Port of Oakland to show the broadening reach of the Occupy Wall Street movement ended in violence when police in riot gear arrested dozens of protesters overnight who broke into a vacant building, shattered downtown windows, sprayed graffiti and set blazes along the way….Protesters also threw concrete chunks, metal pipes, lit roman candles and molotov cocktails, police said.” http://bit.ly/vsyQhR
OBAMACARE NUMBERS: We’ve all heard in the media that ObamaCare will cut the deficit by a trillion plus dollars and everybody gets a free doctor, but do the numbers really add up? AIM guest columnist John Dendahl finds: “Extensive searching did not turn up anything like the $1.3 trillion figure in any Congressional Budget Office report of its analyses. Rather, it appears to be pie in the sky, ‘baked’ by ObamaCare proponents extrapolating what CBO communications said about possibly reduced rates of growth in government health care expenditures.” http://bit.ly/rLuzXg
BIG EDUCATION: Want to earn more than a junior lawyer or new doctor? Become a teacher, save yourself the debt and higher education. Accuracy in Academia finds: “Cost-benefit analysis may not be their strong suit but education majors may have figured out how to get the best return on their investment from college…Workers who switch from non-teaching jobs to teaching jobs receive a wage increase of roughly 9 percent.” http://bit.ly/shqH5K
