  1. So you know the complete history of these ladies to make that assessment? You do know the white lady was considered mentally unfit for trial? Or is that an indicator of racism in all it's full glory?

  3. What does her race have to do with anything? Is Judge Ruben Gonzalez a white supremacist? OK.
  4. Proposal to split California into three states makes November ballot KARMA ALLEN,Good Morning America 7 hours ago Reactions Reblog on Tumblr Share Tweet Email California residents will get a chance to vote on a measure to divide the Golden State into three separate states, election officials said Tuesday. Proponents of the CAL 3 initiative submitted more than 402,468 valid signatures as of Tuesday, making it eligible for the Nov. 6 general election ballot, according to the California Secretary of State’s office. The office did not say exactly how many total signatures were submitted, but backers said the petition drew more than 600,000 from residents across the state’s 58 counties, dwarfing the 365,000 signatures required to qualify for the ballot. Adding the initiative to the ballot would be the first step in a long process that would ultimately require approval from Congress. The proposal, led by venture capitalist Tim Draper, would split the country’s most populous state into three new states of near-equal population: Northern California, California and Southern California, according to the proposal. Northern California would include cities between the Bay Area and the Oregon border. Southern California would begin in Fresno and cover most of the southern state. The "new" California would cover Los Angeles County and much of the coast below San Francisco Bay, the proposal said. California Secretary of State Alex Padilla will certify the initiative as qualified for the November ballot on June 28, his office said Tuesday. (MORE: 2018 California primary election results) (MORE: California siblings say ICE detained 62-year-old father despite legal status) Draper proposed similar measures in 2012 and 2014, but those efforts failed after election officials invalidated many of the signatures collected. “The unanimous support for CAL 3 from all 58 of California’s counties to reach this unprecedented milestone in the legislative process is the signal that across California, we are united behind CAL 3 to create a brighter future for everyone,” Draper said in a statement in April after the signatures were collected. Draper says the spilt would create three separate governments, boost education and infrastructure, and lower taxes, but critics claim it could do more harm than good. “It’s not like you’re starting from scratch, you have to blow up everything,” Steven Maviglio, who helped defeat Draper’s previous effort, told local reporters earlier this year. “There are so many fundamentally flawed aspects to this.”

    Iranian official admits Iran's role in 9/11

    I never claimed is was a true interpretation, that I knew Farsi, or that you were wrong. I'm perfectly fine being debunked, no hard feelings about that. That's the point of sharing information. You've made a valid point it could be propaganda, but so far presented nothing to suggest it is.

    If you had said that in the first place, I think we all would agree.

    Your annoyed with the topic so it's not true. Good enough for me.
  11. I did make an assumption beyond what the article stated, but as SH's post points out, it turns out to be correct.

    I would like to know how you debunked the video? Is he not an Iranian official? Was the translation fabricated? Was a Israeli pretending to be a Iranian?

    According to the Cardinals website, “Signs cannot be commercial, political or obscene in nature." It applies to the fans too Woody. They don't want to turn a game into a political experience.

    This in from the ACLU

    The FBI released its official crime tally for 2016 today, and the data flies in the face of the rhetoric that professional athletes rehearsed in revived Black Lives Matter protests over the weekend. Nearly 900 additional blacks were killed in 2016 compared with 2015, bringing the black homicide-victim total to 7,881. Those 7,881 “black bodies,” in the parlance of Ta-Nehisi Coates, are 1,305 more than the number of white victims (which in this case includes most Hispanics) for the same period, though blacks are only 13 percent of the nation’s population. The increase in black homicide deaths last year comes on top of a previous 900-victim increase between 2014 and 2015. Who is killing these black victims? Not whites, and not the police, but other blacks. In 2016, the police fatally shot 233 blacks, the vast majority armed and dangerous, according to the Washington Post. The Post categorized only 16 black male victims of police shootings as “unarmed.” That classification masks assaults against officers and violent resistance to arrest. Contrary to the Black Lives Matter narrative, the police have much more to fear from black males than black males have to fear from the police. In 2015, a police officer was 18.5 times more likely to be killed by a black male than an unarmed black male was to be killed by a police officer. Black males have made up 42 percent of all cop-killers over the last decade, though they are only 6 percent of the population. That 18.5 ratio undoubtedly worsened in 2016, in light of the 53 percent increase in gun murders of officers—committed vastly and disproportionately by black males. Among all homicide suspects whose race was known, white killers of blacks numbered only 243. Violent crime has now risen by a significant amount for two consecutive years. The total number of violent crimes rose 4.1 percent in 2016, and estimated homicides rose 8.6 percent. In 2015, violent crime rose by nearly 4 percent and estimated homicides by nearly 11 percent. The last time violence rose two years in a row was 2005–06. The reason for the current increase is what I have called the Ferguson Effect. Cops are backing off of proactive policing in high-crime minority neighborhoods, and criminals are becoming emboldened. Having been told incessantly by politicians, the media, and Black Lives Matter activists that they are bigoted for getting out of their cars and questioning someone loitering on a known drug corner at 2 AM, many officers are instead just driving by. Such stops are discretionary; cops don’t have to make them. And when political elites demonize the police for just such proactive policing, we shouldn’t be surprised when cops get the message and do less of it. Seventy-two percent of the nation’s officers say that they and their colleagues are now less willing to stop and question suspicious persons, according to a Pew Research pollreleased in January. The reason is the persistent anti-cop climate. Four studies came out in 2016 alone rebutting the charge that police shootings are racially biased. If there is a bias in police shootings, it works in favor of blacks and against whites. That truth has not stopped the ongoing demonization of the police—including, now, by many of the country’s ignorant professional athletes. The toll will be felt, as always, in the inner city, by the thousands of law-abiding people there who desperately want more police protection.
