Imbecile.

Via Sky News:

Meryl Streep has dismissed questions about the all-white panel at the Berlin Film Festival by telling reporters that “we’re all Africans really”.

Streep, who is heading the jury for the first time, said she was committed to equality and the inclusion of “all genders, race, ethnicities, religions”.

“This jury is evidence that at least women are included and in fact dominate this jury, and that’s an unusual situation in bodies of people who make decisions,” The Iron Lady actress said.

“So I think the Berlinale is ahead of the game.”

Via Daily Beast:

The Congressional Black Caucus’s political action committee endorsed Hillary Clinton for president Thursday morning. The CBC’s chairman, Rep. G.K. Butterfield (D-NC), said: “Black lives are being lost on the streets of America because of police misconduct and gang violence… and so we must have a president that understands the racial divide.” He added, “After considering the entire field, there is no question in our mind and in our minds that one single candidate—one—possesses the patience, experience, and temperament.” Clinton will debate Bernie Sanders on Thursday night in Milwaukee.

ISIS Leader Abu Bakr al-Baghdadi Makes Appearance At Mosque In Fallujah….

Via Independent:

The Isis jihadist group appears to have released a new set of images showing a rare public appearance by its leader, Abu Bakr al-Baghdadi.

The self-proclaimed “caliph” was last captured on camera in July 2014, when he gave a speech to followers at a mosque in Mosul.

It is impossible to verify the new images, but Isis supporters on social media claim they show Al-Baghdadi speaking to children at a mosque in Fallujah, Iraq.

The risk to the Isis leader’s life is such that he no longer addresses large gatherings. The US has placed a $10 million bounty on his head, making him one of the most wanted terrorists in the world.

If they do show Al-Baghdadi, the new images do not teach us much we didn’t already know about the reclusive militant chief.

Some Isis followers have suggested that a man shown in the far-right on one of the images is the leader’s “double” – a logical safety measure given the number of Isis convoys that have been targeted by international air strikes.

Los Angeles Unified School District Has Banned Immigration Raids On Its Campuses…

lausd-logo

Isn’t LA already a sanctuary city?

Via Vice News:

The school board of the Los Angeles Unified School District unanimously adopted a resolution on Tuesday that bans US Immigration and Customs Enforcement agents from coming onto school property without permission — a move meant to signal to immigrant students and their families that they are secure while on campus.

ICE agents haven’t attempted to look for students at the district’s schools, but board members said that some families expressed concern after ICE detained more than 120 people last month in raids across the country that were meant to identify and deport illegal immigrants. This sparked rumors that raids were planned on Los Angeles schools, prompting LA Unified Superintendent Michelle King to issue a statement that said, “Neither the Los Angeles Unified School District nor the Los Angeles School Police Department is aware of any planned raids or other action by Immigration and Customs Enforcement at any LA Unified school site. The District welcomes all students and all families and is committed to supporting their right to live, learn and work in their communities.”

LAUSD is the country’s largest school district by enrollment, and has frequently advocated on behalf of its immigrant students, including calling on the federal government to pass immigration reform legislation.

Steve Zimmer, president of the LAUSD Board of Education, said that he and the other board members wanted to reassure worried families in passing the resolution.

“The vitriol and hate that presently permeates the immigration debate, combined with a regrettable change in US Immigration and Customs Enforcement practices, made it necessary for the Board of Education to take a strong stand in solidarity with our families and our communities,” Zimmer said in a statement released after the vote. “Our message is simple and direct: our schools are safe, welcoming and embracing for all families.”

Obama’s Budget Calls For $5 Million To Stop Border Patrol Agents From “Operating With Impunity”…

AP_040403012889-1024x686

Via ThinkProgress:

Tucked into the final budget proposal of President Obama’s administration is an effort to prevent U.S. Customs and Border Protection (CBP) agents from operating withimpunity after the agency has been plagued with years of controversy.

In his 2017 fiscal year budget plan, President Obama is requesting the allocation of $5 million to support the use of body-worn cameras for agents on the southern U.S. border.

Described as a request that “could have positive effects on CBP and the public,” border officials would test out the use of camera technology during their field operations — expanding on a existing pilot program hoping to make the agency more accountable and transparent.

The proposed allocation for body cameras makes up just a small portion of the president’s $40.6 billion requested budget for the Department of Homeland Security (DHS). But it could have huge implications for immigrant advocates, who for years have argued that the CBP agency needs to be held more accountable amid allegations of corruption and a troubling rise in the use of force by agents against U.S. citizens, border crossers, and Mexican citizens.

Good point Carl. However in the slightly altered words of Marco Rubio, let’s dispel with notion she didn’t know what she was doing. She knew exactly what she was doing.

Via Daily Caller:

Wednesday for continually blaming a “vast right-wing conspiracy” for her campaign woes.

“I think she has to acknowledge she’s made some terrible misjudgments and errors, particularly on the server,” Bernstein said during an interview on CNN.

“The vast right-wing conspiracy didn’t put the server in her damn closet. She’s going to have to get by this thing, and she’s going to have to acknowledge a terrible misjudgment it seems to be here.”

Bernstein, who gained fame after breaking the Watergate story with fellow Washington Post reporter Bob Woodward, said that Clinton’s massive loss to Vermont Sen. Bernie Sanders in Tuesday’s New Hampshire primary was a testament to the low levels of trust voters have in her.

Iran Mocks U.S. Sailors With Reenactors

They also deliberately picked overweight Reenactors to further jab at us and show us to be ‘soft’. All of the actual sailors were in great shape.

Notice also the woman has make up on which the female sailor did not, as well as no hijab, showing American decadence. In fact they made the female sailor wear a veil. Yet they sort of stump themselves with this part of the reenactment as they let a woman go without hijab at least for as long as this went on.

Via Daily Caller:

A father was on the phone with his daughter when suddenly a stray bullet hit her in the head.

Aaren O’Connor, 25, was sitting in her car Friday in Chicago talking with her dad on the phone. Her father, David O’Connor, could tell something was wrong, but he had no idea that his daughter had actually been hit by a stray bullet, CBS Chicago reports.

“She was having trouble speaking,” David told The Chicago Tribune. “She didn’t know where she was. She kept saying her head hurts, her head hurts. I thought maybe she was having a stroke or something.”

Report: Christians, Gays And Women Fleeing Asylum Centres In Germany Over Growing Violence By Muslim Men…

55140fe16

Via Breitbart:

Christians, homosexuals and women are fleeing asylum centres in Germany in ever growing numbers due to acts of violence, intolerance and crime perpetrated by Muslim men.

According to German newspaper Die Welt, the violence toward ethnic minorities, religious minorities and women continues to skyrocket across German asylum centres. Muslim men tear up Bibles and assault Christians, sexually abuse women and children, and beat up homosexuals. The news has led to calls from human rights campaigners to say enough is enough.

In Stuttgart a case of abuse toward an Assyrian Christian by a Muslim roommate led to a petition for separate housing that was signed by over 17,000 people online. The petition, organised by the Central Oriental Christians, asked the City of Stuttgart to, “please accommodate the displaced Christians in Stuttgart-Neugereut and keep them from further distress and persecution to which they are exposed in a decentralised accommodation.”

The matter was brought to the city and a separate asylum centre for 30 Christians was approved by the council. Spokesman for Stuttgart Sven Matis told the paper that after speaking to the district assistant they would be able to approve accommodation for the 30 Christians in Neugereut by the end of April.

Martin Lessenthin, CEO of the International Society for Human Rights also commented on the systematic persecutions of Christians all across German asylum homes. He said it was common to see both Christians and Yazidis subject to torment and beatings and while it is not desirable to accommodate migrants separately, it may be inevitable for the safety of the minorities.

Black Actress Vivica Fox Makes Campaign Stop For Hillary At HBCU Voorhees…

Desperation.

Via WISTV:

With the South Carolina primaries right around the corner, actress Vivica Fox made her rounds in South Carolina on Tuesday campaigning for Hillary Clinton.

Fox spoke to an audience at Voorhees in Denmark telling them to stay engaged and politically aware as the primaries approach. She stressed the importance of voting and making sure everyone’s voice is heard on Election Day.

“What I learned coming to South Carolina this time is you guys had 400,000 voters that were registered to vote and they did not vote,” Fox said. “And I found that to be very disappointing. We saw that, when we did turn out to vote in numbers for Barack Obama, we got in the house. We have to not get comfortable we have to continue to care. We have to continue to pay attention and that’s why it’s so important to always make sure generation next which is the young folks — that they know there vote counts. Get out pay attention to what’s happening.”

The Republican primary in South Carolina will be held on February 20th. The Democratic primary is slated to take place on February 27th.

Moonbats To Fast For 40 Days Of Lent So Christian Organizations “Confess And Repent The Sins Of Racism, Sexism And Islamophobia”…

Or something.

Via Chicago Tribune:

Roughly 30 supporters of Larycia Hawkins demonstrated on the steps of Edman Memorial Chapel at Wheaton College on Ash Wednesday, pledging to fast for the 40 days of Lent in a call to the Wheaton community and evangelical Christian institutions nationwide to “confess and repent of the sins of racism, sexism and Islamophobia.”

“We believe that there’s a possibility of a better Wheaton,” said the Rev. Peter Heltzel, a Wheaton College alumnus and associate professor of theology at New York Theological Seminary. “For we love our school. We know that what happened to professor Hawkins just ain’t right. But we believe that a better Wheaton is possible.”

At the same time, Hawkins and Wheaton College President Philip Ryken were holding a joint news conference in Chicago, attempting to lower the curtain on the controversy that has unfolded since the former political science professor in December posted a photo of herself on Facebook wearing a hijab to show support for Muslims who had been under scrutiny since mass shootings in Paris and San Bernardino, Calif. She called her gesture an act of “embodied solidarity.”

“I stand in religious solidarity with Muslims because they, like me, a Christian, are people of the book,” she had explained in a Facebook post. “And as Pope Francis stated … we worship the same God.”

Within days, the college placed Hawkins on paid administrative leave through the spring semester, pending a review. According to the administration, not clarifying what makes Christianity distinct from Islam put Hawkins in conflict with Wheaton’s statement of faith, 12 theological points that all Wheaton faculty must affirm. By January, Provost Stanton Jones sought to fire her.

Last weekend, he apologized for acting in haste and the college announced a separation agreement.

An employee at the General Motors Technical Center in Warren stabbed by someone visiting the plant Wednesday.

The 52-year-old victim was hospitalized and suspect arrested by police – but the valet service supervisor with a valid CPL who pulled his gun to stop the attack, says he was fired.

“The lady kept saying ‘I’m dying, someone help’ and it was just natural reaction,” said Didarul Sarder, SP+ Valet Supervisor. “I just see this lady getting stabbed. I only had like half a second to think and I un-holstered my firearm and pointed it at her to drop the knife.”

The stabbing happened right outside the main entrance of the central office building where the 52-year-old victim works.
