Iran says it is ready to restart its nuclear program on an "industrial scale" in the wake of the decision by US President Donald Trump to abandon the deal that curbs the country's nuclear ambitions. In a statement published Friday, Iranian Foreign Minister Javad Zarif said he would embark on a round of international diplomacy to try and save the deal. At the same time, the country would make preparations to restart its program of nuclear enrichment, he said. read more

President Trump, from prepared remarks, will make the case that Iran has continued to build its nuclear weapons program, a White House aide tells CNN. The Director of National Intelligence, Secretary of State and Secretary of Defense have all said in last two months they are complying with the deal. Israeli Prime Minister Netanyahu's presentation last week on Iran's nuclear program did not change that assessment. read more

JPMorgan Chase, Citigroup, Wells Fargo, Goldman Sachs, Morgan Stanley and Bank of America saved a collective $3.59 billion in the most recent quarter thanks to the GOP tax law's changes.

The Trump administration's first year of immigration policy has relied on claims that immigrants bring crime into America. President Trump's latest target is sanctuary cities. As of 2017, according to Gallup polls, almost half of Americans agreed that immigrants make crime worse. But is it true that immigration drives crime? Many studies have shown that it does not. According to data from the study, a large majority of the areas have many more immigrants today than they did in 1980 and fewer violent crimes. The Marshall Project extended the study's data up to 2016, showing that crime fell more often than it rose even as immigrant populations grew almost across the board. read more

#106 | Posted by eberly, Better question would be why are black young men involved in activities that get them confronted by the police? Maybe if young black men had a father in the home, they might have a better model of behavior than some gang banger on their street. 73% do not. Women can get assistance for their children, families with a man in the home can not qualify. That takes a special sort of stupidity. In confrontations with the police, white men are more likely to get shot. If you want to kill someone, kill a black man in a black neighborhood, no one will say a word to the police. Apparently telling the truth in a black neighborhood is snitching. That is crap, a snitch is a individual involved in a crime that rats out his accomplices for his own benefit. Telling the police what you saw is not snitching, it is getting the trash off the street.

Well that was racist and pretty stupid.

Let's unpack the stupidity, shall we?

1. "Better question would be why are black young men involved in activities that get them confronted by the police?"
Like walking down the street or driving a car? They get stopped simply for being black.

2. "Maybe if young black men had a father in the home, they might have a better model of behavior than some gang banger on their street. 73% do not."
Actually, it's closer to 50% live in a single parent household. It doesn't mean the father isn't around. It's actually about 20% for white children. Doesn't explain the disparity.

3. "Women can get assistance for their children, families with a man in the home can not qualify."
That's actually another lie. Assistance is based upon household income.

4. "In confrontations with the police, white men are more likely to get shot."
That's not accurate in any context. Not a single reputable study ever found that.

5. "If you want to kill someone, kill a black man in a black neighborhood, no one will say a word to the police."
Actually just another stereotype. It's only true to a degree years ago in areas with the absolute worst citizen-police relations.

6. "Apparently telling the truth in a black neighborhood is snitching. That is crap, a snitch is a individual involved in a crime that rats out his accomplices for his own benefit. Telling the police what you saw is not snitching, it is getting the trash off the street."
I doubt you've ever been a in black neighborhood or talked to the people who live there.

I don't think you are American. Your posts are either directly from Trump's Tweets or mimic the worst stereotypes from 90's movies about the inner city. Your last post sounds like someone quoting the Stormfront website. If I'm wrong, you need to get mental help because damn you got issues.
