Jones College Prep ( Heart of Downtown Chicago) — a Chicago Public Schools “selective enrollment” school — recently held “Social Justice Week” in March, a collection of events geared towards turning students into activist.

~ It was a nothing kind of school in 1963 when my older sister attended.

Flyer 2012

According to this flyer on the school’s website:

“Social Justice Week was created to promote community advancement through dialogue and community service based activism. Moreover, we hope to unify the voice of various JCP and community organizations in which to facilitate collaboration for the betterment of the community at large and promote a unified human rights advancement initiative.”

Note: I looked it up…

Who: The Student Government of Jones College Prep (High School)

What: Social Justice Week

Where: Jones College Prep campus, 606 South State Street

When: March 19 – 23, 2012

Why: Social Justice Week was created to promote community advancement through dialogue and community service based activism. Moreover, we hope to unify the voice of various JCP and community organizations in which to facilitate collaboration for the betterment of the community at large and promote a unified human rights advancement initiative. We hope to accomplish this by planning events that bring together numerous organizations for a common goal such as an awareness campaign on the war in Africa, a week on poverty awareness, Women’s rights, LGBTQ rights, etc.

We are looking for community organizations to volunteer their time to come help our students to become more aware of the world around them.

Check out the assignments:

* Voter Registration

* Dream Act

~ Sponsored by ALAS (transforming educational institutions). Taught by SWOP. SWOP organizes to build power in historically disenfranchised communities. A community organization working for progressive social change. Sample of what they preach in their camPAINS:

Across the country, communities have been outraged by the racist policies that have been approved in Arizona. Educators are mobilizing everywhere. One way SWOP is supporting the students of Arizona is by offering our banned book for free to any Arizona student who writes us a letter expressing why ethnic studies is important.

This is JUST a small inkling of all the progressive groups organizing in JUST one school. What chance do we stand?! WHERE is the conservative organization?!

The school is, according to U.S. News & World Report, a Top 100 high school in the country. It’s one of the best of the best — the cream of the crop.

BIRMINGHAM, AL (WBRC) –

One of the chief supporters of Alabama’s tough immigration law now is backing changes to the law. Last week the Alabama House approved changes to the law but Gardendale Senator Scott Beason told Fox6 News he had problems with revised law, which was supported by Gov. Robert Bentley’s administration.

“I’m still concerned that if you change a majority of the bill the [U.S. 11th Circuit Court of Appeals] will say send it back to the lower courts. It’s a completely new law. That would hurt us in our effort to see what states can do,” Beason said.

Beason says his revised bill is simpler, it clarifies the current law and does not weaken it.

“It’s clear you can use a military ID. It clears up questions of a business transaction. We had municipalities question you can’t buy a concert ticket from us, that’s a business transaction,” Beason said.

Freddie Rubio is an attorney representing the Hispanic Interest Coalition of Alabama in challenging the state’s immigration law. Rubio doesn’t think much of any of the revisions of the law being pushed in Montgomery.

“Their effort and tag lines of tweaking it doesn’t really fix the base problems. The fundamental problem. It’s unconstitutional,” Rubio said.

Governor Robert Bentley’s administration introduced the changes to Alabama’s immigration law. Bentley is waiting to see what the final version is before he will support it or not.

“We believe this is what we can agree with. We will wait on the final version before we make a final decision on that,” Bentley said.

“The best thing for Alabama to do is not act until the Supreme Court acts on the Arizona case,” Rubio said.

Wednesday, the U.S. Supreme Court will hear oral arguments on the Arizona law which is similar to Alabama’s law.

~ Dr. Gina JUST had him on the show last week. This is an unreal turnabout! Freddie Rubio sure looks a lot like Marco.

The White House has determined its advance team was not engaged in “any inappropriate conduct” as part of the Colombia prostitution scandal, after launching an internal review out of “an abundance of caution.”

Press Secretary Jay Carney announced the findings of the review Monday, as the Pentagon moved to suspend security clearances for the U.S. service members who have been implicated in the scandal. A senior U.S. defense official also confirmed that one more military member is now under investigation, bringing the total number of U.S. service members implicated to 12 — the latest individual was assigned to the White House communications team, though apparently not part of the White House staff itself.

With the number of Secret Service agents and military personnel tied to the alleged misconduct growing, the White House had faced questions from lawmakers about whether any of its own staff were involved. Carney earlier had dismissed those suggestions, but said Monday that the White House counsel conducted a review as a matter of “due diligence.”

“There’s no indication that any member of the White House advance team engaged in any inappropriate conduct or behavior,” Carney said.

~ So see, Patriots JUST move along, like they also said they had no knowledge of Fast and Furious! It’s all good.

Carney BS’s himself: No misconduct by White House

SIERRA FIREBALL DECODED: On Sunday morning, April 22nd, just as the Lyrid meteor shower was dying down, a spectacular fireball exploded over California’s Sierra Nevada mountain range. The loud explosion rattled homes from central California to Reno, Nevada, and beyond. According to Bill Cooke, head of NASA’s Meteoroid Envronment Office, the source of the blast was a meteoroid about the size of a minivan.

“Elizabeth Silber at Western University has searched for infrasound signals from the explosion,” says Cooke. “Infrasound is very low frequency sound which can travel great distances. There were strong signals at 2 stations, enabling a triangulation of the energy source at 37.6N, 120.5W. This is marked by a yellow flag in the map below.”

“The energy is estimated at a whopping 3.8 kilotons of TNT, so this was a big event,” he continues. “I am not saying there was a 3.8 kiloton explosion on the ground in California. I am saying that the meteor possessed this amount of energy before it broke apart in the atmosphere. [The map] shows the location of the atmospheric breakup, not impact with the ground.”

“The fact that sonic booms were heard indicates that this meteor penetrated very low in atmosphere, which implies a speed less than 15 km/s (33,500 mph). Assuming this value for the speed, I get a mass for the meteor of around 70 metric tons. Hazarding a further guess at the density of 3 grams per cubic centimeter (solid rock), I calculate a size of about 3-4 meters, or about the size of a minivan.”

“This meteor was probably not a Lyrid; without a trajectory, I cannot rule out a Lyrid origin, but I think it likely that it was a background or sporadic meteor.”

April 12, 2012 (CHICAGO) (WLS) — People in seven states reported seeing a fireball in the sky last night.

They weren’t sure exactly what was streaking across the sky, but astronomers from the Adler Planetarium confirm it was a meteor.

“This was a very bright meteor,” said astronomer Dr. Mark Hammergren. “It was brighter than the planet Venus is in the sky. So almost as bright as like a quarter moon. So that’s very bright as far as these go.”

Rep. Trent Franks, Rep. Steve King and Cleta Mitchell speak about Project Veritas Voter Fraud video before House Judiciary Committee. There were reports that Nadler and Rep. Conyers were stunned and surprised by the Holder video and asked their staffers what it was about.

“It hardly inspires the public confidence that a white 20-something can obtain the ballot of the first black Attorney General.” – Rep. Trent Franks

“I’m shocked that the Attorney General isn’t shocked. I’m shocked that the Attorney General hasn’t offered a response to this in a meaningful way… It took James O’Keefe to get this ACORN issue brought before America.” – Rep. Steve King

David Axelrod, senior Obama 2012 strategist, awaits certain rebuke by President Barack Obama today after he violated the guidelines for civil dialogue laid down by the President in the wake of the Gabby Giffords shooting in January 2011 by referring to Republicans as terrorists.

Axelrod explicitly violated that new presidential directive when he stated on CNN’s State of the Union this morning that Republicans were part of a “reign of terror”:

I think a lot of Republicans in Congress want to cooperate, know better, but they’re in the thralls of this reign of terror from the far right that has dragged the party to the right. In your own polling and other polling, you see the Republican Party has really moved out of the mainstream.

Definition of ‘Reign of Terror’

1. The Reign of Terror (5 September 1793 – 28 July 1794) the French Revolution
2. reign of terror pl., reigns of terror. A period of brutal suppression or intimidation by those in power.

Used in sentence: So on David’s exit he is leaving the Obama ‘Reign of Terror’.

Click image for the ‘real’ Reign of Terror…

Given that terrorists are at war with the United States, Axelrod’s comment is clearly meant to suggest that Republicans–and the “reign of terror” that allegedly dominates them–are behaving in anti-American ways.

There is no word yet from the White House, or from Obama 2012 headquarters in Chicago, on what Axelrod’s fate will be–whether a public rebuke from the president, or temporary suspension from his campaign duties.

Failure to respond to Axelrod’s clear and flagrant violation of President Obama’s policy on civility would be unthinkable, as it might suggest that the President actually endorsed Axelrod’s views, and that his commitment to civility in the wake of a terrible national tragedy had been insincere, cynical, and opportunistic.

Unthinkable. Really.

William Shakespeare was born APRIL 23, 1564.

His 37 plays impacted world literature.

He married Ann Hathaway, had three children, moved to London, and became shareholding director of Globe Theater, writing such classics as Hamlet, Macbeth, Othello, and A Midsummer Night’s Dream.

In King Henry VIII, 1613, act III, scene ii, line 456, Shakespeare wrote:

“Had I but served my God with half the zeal I served my king, he would not in mine age have left me naked to mine enemies.”

In Othello, 1604, act I, scene i, line 108, Shakespeare wrote:

“You are one of those that will not serve God if the devil bid you.”

Four years before the Pilgrims landed in America at Plymouth Rock, Shakespeare died on this same day, APRIL 23, in 1616.

In his Will, Shakespeare wrote:

“I commend my soul into the hands of God, my Creator, hoping and assuredly believing, through the only merits of Jesus Christ, my Saviour, to be made partaker of life everlasting.”

Carved on his tomb in Holy Trinity Church, Stratford-on-Avon, England, is:

“Good Friend For Jesus Sake Forbeare, To Digg The Dust Enclosed Heare. Blese Be Ye Man Spares Thes Stones, And Curst Be He Moves My Bones.”

Bloggers from all over the country met in Charlotte, North Carolina, over the weekend for a two day conference sponsored by FreedomWorks and the Franklin Center. It was a time to catch up with old friends, make new ones, exchange ideas, and pay tribute to Andrew Breitbart.

Appropriately, part of Friday’s tribute featured the first thirty-minutes or so of Breitbart News Chairman Stephen K. Bannon’s upcoming documentary, “Occupy Unmasked,” a work in progress that unspooled before a packed house.

The documentary was not only one of Breitbart’s passion projects, but he is prominently featured on-camera throughout as one of the primary narrators taking you through the history of the Occupy movement. It’s another opportunity to see Andrew do what he did best: connect the narrative dots. In the case of Occupy, those dots connect from the movement’s origins straight through the mainstream media and up to the White House and Barack Obama.

* Andrew Breitbart explains his deep abiding love of the Left, the media, and #Occupy Citizens United: OCCUPY UNMASKED

Though still a rough cut, and only the first-act of what will be a full-length feature, the preview showing Occupy in all of its anti-American, socialist, and violent left-wing glory was enough to bring a packed house to its feet for a long standing ovation.

While the first round of the Occupy movement pretty much fizzled, thanks to the efforts of Andrew Breibart and New Media, “Occupy Unmasked” will be a vital document when Occupy reconstitutes this spring — which it has promised to do.
