Does Anaheim resemble a fascist state? It’s seems clear Anaheim City Council candidate Jose Moreno thinks there is more than a passing resemblance:

Compares Anaheim to fascist state

Moreno’s agreement is obviously implicit in his posing the question, and in how he poses it. Would any person of reasonable political philosophy and temperament even ask other’s if they think FDR’s description on fascism applies to Anaheim? Taking in the context of Moreno’s leftism and political statements, it’s pretty obvious who believes this quote applies to Anaheim city government ad politics.

It’s also interesting to see who signified their agreement by following Moreno’s invitation to “like” his post:

During the last few days, the Orange County Employees Association has donated $2,135 to the election campaign of Anaheim Union High School District Board of Trustees Al Jabbar, who was appointed to in 2013 to fill a vacancy created by Jordan Brandman’s election to the Anaheim City Council.

Jabbar, a Democrat, ran for the Anaheim City School District Board of Education in 2012 and got smoked. 

There’s nothing surprising about the OCEA donation. Jabbar, who is a county employee, is an OCEA shop steward and a past member of the OCEA Board of Directors and the OCEA Political Action Committee board. He’s one of the first local elected official the OCEA endorsed this year.

More retro clipart at http://www.clipartof.com/Tonight the Anaheim Union High School District will consider a report claiming district facilities need $1.2 billion – yes, billion — in improvements.

According to the OC Register:

More than $1.2 billion in safety and classroom upgrades are needed at 19 campuses in the Anaheim Union High School District over the next decade, according to a report that will be considered Thursday by the district’s board of trustees.

If approved, the board’s next step is to decide, on July 10, whether to place a $249 million bond measure onto the November ballot to partially pay for those improvements in a district serving 32,000-plus students from portions of Anaheim, Cypress, Buena Park, La Palma and Stanton.

“We’re looking at basic renovations to keep our students safe, along with giving them classroom tools and modern classrooms so that we can provide them a 21st-century education,” said Al Jabbar, an Anaheim Union board member.

A group of Anaheim Union High School District parents upset at the sudden and unexplained sacking without cause of Superintendent Elizabeth Novack, have decided to launch a campaign to recall the three AUHSD Trustees Al Jabbar, Katherine Smith and Annemarie Randel-Trejo who voted for the termination, an action opposed by Trustees Brian O’Neal and Anna Piercy.

Lori Diniwddie, one of the parents leading the effort, sent out this e-mail this morning:

We have decided to move forward with the recall of trustee’s Smith, Jabbar and Annemarie Randel-Trejo.  

After last night’s board meeting, I have been overwhelmed with support for the recall.  

This is your chance, I need 10 registered voters to sign the documents to start the recall process. Please let me know if this is something you would be willing to do. 

As well, we have begun a facebook support page, so please go to, http://www.facebook.com/recallAUHSD , and like and share! 

This financial irresponsibility must end now!
