Seniors At Albuquerque High School Vote For Communism-Themed Prom…

“Prom-munism”. That’s super clever…..

(h/t Vanessa Oblinger)

Via KRQE:

ALBUQUERQUE (KRQE) – They’re calling it “prom-munism.” Seniors at an Albuquerque school want their prom to have a Communism theme. Seniors at Cottonwood Classical Preparatory School near I-25 and Paseo del Norte voted online this week for the theme of their prom this year.

“They wanted prom-munism, so that’s what got voted for the most,” said senior Sarah Zachary.

She voted for “A Night in the Reef,” because the prom is expected to take place at the Albuquerque Aquarium on April 25.

“We have a lot of jokesters in our grade, so they wanted it to be funny and a lot of them are really intense with politics,” Zachary said.

However, students who asked to remain anonymous don’t believe Communism is a joking matter.

“I would hope Cottonwood would realize the seriousness of having a very powerful and destructive idea as the theme for a prom,” one student wrote.

Another said, “While the seniors meant no harm in their choice of theme, it is not appropriate.”

“Our students are in the International Baccalaureate program, so they are very academically focused,” said Sam Obenshain, executive director at Cottonwood. “One of the classes they enjoy the most is a world history class.”

Obenshain said, despite the vote, this is not a done deal. He said he plans to talk with the students about it next week.

“Our Constitution is being shredded.

Luis Gutierrez Brags Chicago No Longer Cooperates With Immigration Authorities…

If you look up the definition of “ass” in the dictionary, there’s no words. Just a pic of this guy.

Via Truth Revolt:

In a recent speech, Rep. Luis Gutierrez (D-IL) declared that Chicago is the “friendliest immigrant city in the nation” because under Mayor Rahm Emmanuel they “no longer cooperate with immigration authorities when it comes to the deportation or separation of our families.”

Gutierrez, chairman of the Democratic immigration task force and outspoken amnesty proponent, made the comments during a speech last week to the City Club of Chicago. In his remarks, Gutierrez proudly proclaimed that Chicago, under Emmanuel’s leadership, was blocking the deportation efforts of immigration authorities to protect illegal immigrants:

On immigration, I want to let everybody know, the city of Chicago is the friendliest immigrant city in the nation and Rahm Emmanuel had a lot to do with that. He made sure that we no longer cooperate with immigration authorities when it comes to the deportation and separation of our families by using city structures. Nobody can be asked when you enroll your kid in a school or seek out care because you’re injured what your immigration status is and that’s the law in the city of Chicago. I think that’s something.

FOIA Request Submitted In 2012 For Hillary’s Email Address Never Answered; Mysteriously Listed As “Closed”…

Side note: The group who filed the FOIA has since been taken over by David Brock, the far-left wing nut who created Media Matters.

Via WFB:

The State Department may have ignored or rejected a request made in 2012 under the Freedom of Information Act by the watchdog group Citizens for Responsibility and Ethics in Washington (CREW) seeking Hillary Clinton’s email addresses, according to a Daily Caller report on Thursday.

The New York Times reported on Monday that Clinton exclusively used a private email account and server for her email during her four years as secretary of state, skirting federal records laws, as well as State Department and Obama administration transparency guidelines, and raising suspicions that numerous public records requests for her emails were improperly blocked.

Anne Weismann, CREW’s general counsel, submitted a FOIA request to the State Department on Dec. 6, 2012, seeking “records sufficient to show the number of email accounts of or associated with Secretary Hilary Rodham Clinton, and the extent to which those email accounts are identifiable as those of or associated with Secretary Clinton.”

CREW’s request came on the heels of news that former EPA administrator Lisa Jackson had used an alias email account to conduct government business, and the organization was seeking to see if other senior officials used similar pseudonymous email accounts.

“CREW seeks to learn how widespread this practice is, and to evaluate the extent to which it has led to under-inclusive responses to FOIA, discovery, and congressional requests, and a failure to preserve records in a way that complies with the Federal Records Act,” Weismann wrote.

Great News: Labor Force Participation Rate Sits Near 37-Year-Low…

Barack-Obama

92,898,000 people in America are not working…

Via CNS News:

(CNSNews.com) – The labor force participation rate hovered between 62.9 percent and 62.7 percent in the eleven months from April 2014 through February, and has been 62.9 percent or lower in 13 of the 17 months since October 2013.

Prior to that, the last time the rate was below 63 percent was 37 years ago, in March 1978 when it was 62.8 percent, the same rate it was in February.

“The civilian labor force participation rate, at 62.8 percent, changed little in February and has remained within the narrow range of 62.7 to 62.9 percent since April 2014,” the BLS said in its release on the February employment data.

92,898,000 Americans were not in the labor force in February, according to data released from the Bureau of Labor Statistics (BLS) on Friday.

The labor force participation rate is the percentage of the civilian noninstitutional population who participated in the labor force by either having a job during the month or actively seeking one.

Via National Journal:

The Department of Justice is preparing to charge Democratic New Jersey Sen. Bob Menendez , the ranking member of the Senate’s Foreign Relations Committee, with corruption, CNN reported Friday.

According to the news outlet, Menendez is facing allegations that he traded his political influence for perks and favors from a top donor, Dr. Salmon Melgen—an eye doctor and political backer.

While a formal announcement could still be weeks from now, CNN reported that Attorney General Eric Holder has given the greenlight to move forward with the case before time runs out to pursue some of the charges.

France Unveils New Plan To Stop Islamic Terrorism: Double The Number Of University Courses On Islam…

france mu

Mind-boggling.

Via France 24:

French Prime Minister Manuel Valls on Tuesday announced that the state would finance double the number of university courses on Islam in a bid to stop the influence of foreign funding of training of French imams.

In a speech in the eastern French city of Strasbourg, Valls said that improving home-grown Islamic education was essential to defeating the ignorance that makes “Islamist extremism and the far right feed off each other”.

His speech follows January’s Charlie Hebdo terrorist attacks and comes amid concern about the influence of radical foreign imams on Muslims in France, which has Western Europe’s biggest Muslim community.

The Socialist government is also worried about the increasing popularity of the anti-immigration and anti-Europe National Front party, which is coming top of the polls ahead of regional elections due to take place later this month.

“The rise of far-right populist politics, in Europe as well as in our own country, feeds directly off the rise of jihadism, terrorism and radical extremism,” he said. “It is a situation that puts our democracy, our society and our capacity to live together in extreme jeopardy.”

Valls said he wanted more imams and other religious figures, such as prison chaplains, who have been trained abroad to “undergo more training in France, to speak French fluently and to understand the concept of secularism” that is a core pillar of French Republican values.

Report: Al-Qaeda’s Military Chief In Syria And His Top Commanders Killed During Attack On Al-Nusra Front Base…

Abu-Hammam-al-Shami

Very skeptical until we hear something from Al-Nusra, the Syrian state media isn’t exactly a trustworthy source.

Beirut (AFP) – The military chief and several top commanders of the Al-Qaeda-affiliated Al-Nusra Front have been reported killed in northwestern Syria, where the jihadist militia has been making major gains in recent months.

Syrian state media, a monitoring group and a local activist reported that Abu Hammam al-Shami had been killed but information on the circumstances of his death was contradictory.

Official Nusra sources did not announce the death of the jihadist, who is believed to have fought with Al-Qaeda in Afghanistan.

“Shami… was killed with a number of other leaders during a special operation by the army” in Idlib province, Syrian state news agency SANA reported, without specifying a date.

Rami Abdel Rahman, the head of the Syrian Observatory for Human Rights monitoring group, also said the commander had been killed but that the circumstances of his death were unclear.

“Shami died of injuries on Thursday, but it is not clear when he sustained them,” Abdel Rahman told AFP.

Poll: Number Of Americans Who Think Obama Is “Honest” Sinks To All-Time Low, 43%…

Barack Obama

Oh no, Nancy Pelosi is about to cry again.

Via Fox News:

Fewer voters than ever before see Obama as honest: a record-low 43 percent.  And for the first time since 2007, a majority, 54 percent, disagrees that the president is “honest.”

Three-quarters of Democrats currently think Obama is honest (75 percent), while just 39 percent of independents and 15 percent of Republicans say the same.

For comparison, in 2011 some 57 percent of voters described Obama as honest.  That included 86 percent of Democrats, 53 percent of independents and 26 percent of Republicans.

Jewish Journalist Walks Streets Of Britain With Hidden Camera: “Fight The Jewish Scum!” “Jew, Jew, Jew… Run!”…

Then again, rampant anti-Semitism in the UK isn’t exactly a big secret.

Via Daily Mail:

With as many as 45 per cent of British Jews fearing they ‘may not have a future in Britain’, according to a survey by the Campaign Against Antisemitism – and following an experiment by Israeli Zvika Klein on the streets of Paris, British journalist Jonathan Kalmus decided to test the levels of prejudice in two British cities with shocking results. Volunteers in Copenhagen and Rome also suffered some abuse, as well as welcoming reactions, while Jewish journalists in Stockholm and Berlin walked for hours without incident.

‘You Jew’ was the anti-Semitic scream which came from a passing car. My shaken wife tried to explain it away to my seven-year-old daughter as a very large sneeze. They were simply playing in a local park in Manchester a few weeks ago when the incident ripped through what should have been a peaceful and wholesome time for any mother and child.

‘Fight the Jewish scum’ and ‘Jew, Jew, Jew… Run’, were the more vicious threats hurled at me in the past few days, however, when I decided to secretly film and find out whether ‘Jew-hatred’ really is alive and kicking on British streets.
The answer to that question is a resounding and heart-sinking yes.

I took the inspiration from the viral videos of Israeli journalist Zvika Klein, who filmed himself being threatened on the streets of Paris, and Muslim Hamdy Mahisen, who filmed himself getting abuse in Milan.

Zvika walked in Paris for 10 hours, Hamdy in Milan for five. It took me just one minute. One minute of walking one single, busy major street in Manchester before abuse was flung at me.

In 25 minutes on that one single street in Longsight, I was spat at by one man and called ‘a Jew’ multiple times by passers by, even by a young boy walking with his father.

Via Washington Times:

A day ahead of President Obama’s trip to Selma to commemorate the 50th anniversary of Bloody Sunday, a new poll shows that nearly half of Americans believe race relations have worsened over the course of his presidency.

Thirty-nine percent believe relations between blacks and whites have worsened since Mr. Obama took office, while 15 percent say race relations have improved and 45 percent say they have stayed the same, according to the CNN/ORC poll. Forty-five percent of whites and 26 percent of blacks think they have worsened.

U.S. Army Appeals Court Rules Military Must Refer To Traitor Bradley Manning As A “She”…

Army now mandated to celebrate diversity!

Via Free Beacon:

An Army appeals court has ruled that the military may not refer to Private Bradley Manning as a man.

Col. Lorianne M. Campanella, Col. Eric Krauss, and Col. R. Tideman Penland in the United States Army Court of Criminal Appeals ruled that “future formal papers filed before this court and all future orders and decisions issued by this court shall either be neutral, e.g., Private First Class Manning or appellant, or employ a feminine pronoun.”

Manning, who was convicted for espionage and is serving 35 years at Fort Leavenworth, announced in 2013 that he identifies as a woman, and wants to be known as Chelsea Manning. Manning passed 251,287 classified State Department cables to Wikileaks via a fake Lady Gaga cd.

New Hampshire DNC Official: Republican Presidential Candidates Are “Members Of Serf- And Slave-Owning Classes”…

Errrr, did he say “slave-owning?”

Via Politico:

… Three days into the rolling controversy over Hillary Clinton’s use of a personal email address as Secretary of State, Democrats are showing signs of stress.

In interviews with more than three dozen Democratic activists, donors, and officials from across the country — including many in the influential presidential nominating states of Iowa, New Hampshire, and South Carolina — some were scathing in their criticism over the revelations, while others admitted to being unnerved.

Doug Grant, the Democratic chairman for northern Grafton County in New Hampshire, framed it this way:

“Is Hillary electable? Admittedly the Republicans have a lot of problems with their candidates who are members of the slave- and serf- owning classes, but we worry nevertheless that one of them will become the next president,” he said. “I would like to see an alternative to Hillary who was popular, populist, wanted to run, electable, not too old and could raise money.”

Obama Ties His Executive Orders On Amnesty To Selma March And Civil Rights Movement

Groan…

Via The Hill:

Deporting illegal immigrants who came to the United States as children would violate the spirit of the civil rights movement, President Obama said ahead of his trip to Alabama to mark the 50th anniversary of the march from Selma to Montgomery.

“The notion that some kid that was brought here when he was two or three years old might somehow be deported at the age of 20 or 25 even though they’ve grown up as American, that’s not who we are,” he said during an interview air Friday on Sirius XM’s “Urban View” with Joe Madison.

“That’s not true to the spirit of what the march on Selma was about.” […]

Obama said the executive action he took in 2012 to defer deportations for illegal immigrants who came to the U.S. as children comports with the lessons from the Selma marches about an “inclusive America.”

“When you think about the principle that was upheld that day and in subsequent days at the Edmund Pettus Bridge, it was the promise of an inclusive America, it was the promise of an America where everybody was equal under the law,” he said.

Obama also linked the Selma march to the fight for gay rights, saying that at its core, the civil rights movement was about affirming the “basic principle [that] we treat people fairly.”

House Democrats Say They Will Defend Boehner If Conservative Try To Oust Him As Speaker…

nc_john_boehner_nancy_pelosi_ll_130321_wmain

Including far-left Dem Rep. Raúl Grijalva.

Via The Hill:

Tea Party Republicans contemplating a bid to oust Rep. John Boehner (R-Ohio) shouldn’t count on Democrats to help them unseat the Speaker.

And without their support, there is no chance to topple Boehner in this Congress.

A number of right-wing Republicans, long wary of Boehner’s commitment to GOP efforts attacking President Obama’s policy priorities, have openly considered a coup in an attempt to transfer the gavel into more conservative hands.

But Democrats from across an ideological spectrum say they’d rather see Boehner remain atop the House than replace him with a more conservative Speaker who would almost certainly be less willing to reach across the aisle in search of compromise. Replacing him with a Tea Party Speaker, they say, would only bring the legislative process — already limping along — to a screeching halt.

“I’d probably vote for Boehner [because] who the hell is going to replace him? [Ted] Yoho?” Rep. Bill Pascrell (D-N.J.) said Wednesday, referencing the Florida Tea Party Republican who’s fought Boehner on a host of bipartisan compromise bills.

“In terms of the institution, I would rather have John Boehner as the Speaker than some of these characters who came here thinking that they’re going to change the world,” Pascrell added.

Liberal Rep. Raúl Grijalva (D-Ariz.) agreed that, for Democrats, replacing Boehner could lead to a worse situation.

“Then we would get Scalise or somebody? Geez, come on,” said Grijalva, who referenced House Majority Whip Steve Scalise (R-La.). “We can be suicidal but not stupid.”
