FBI investigating if stabbing was hate crime

UPDATE: The FBI is helping to investigate the stabbing at the University of Maryland to determine whether it was a hate crime.

University of Maryland Police Chief David Mitchell said at a press conference Sunday that he sought the FBI's help after finding

where members post racially charged material.

Urbanski has been charged with first- and second-degree murder as well as first-degree assault in the death of Richard Collins III.

Urbanski is white and Collins was black.

Mitchell said Collins was a senior, who was set to graduate on Tuesday. He was recently commissioned as a second lieutenant in the U.S. Army.

Republicans fearing for their safety as anger, threats mount

A growing number of House Republicans are facing physical threats from http://www.msn.com/en-us/news/politics/republicans-fearing-for-their-safety-as-anger-threats-mount/ar-BBBlFlAangry constituents in their districts, leading many to fear for their safety.

In the last few weeks alone, the FBI arrested a man threatening Rep. Martha McSally's (Ariz.) life; a woman pursued Rep. David Kustoff (Tenn.)

with her car, and Rep. Thomas Garrett (Va.) heightened security at a recent town hall in response to death threats.

Other Republicans still holding town halls say they haven't felt physically threatened by protesters, but they worry about the depth of anger from some constituents in the polarized environment and what it means for political civility.

Scores of GOP lawmakers have experienced going viral this year with video of constituents shouting their

disagreement on support for President Trump and policies like the GOP's healthcare bill.

Lately, though, Republicans have observed some furious constituents who appear to be going too far. Rep. Dave Brat (R-Va.) described attendees at a town hall in his district last week who booed him down after he said people's rights are God-given.

Iran election: Hassan Rouhani says voters rejected extremism

Moderate Iranian President Hassan Rouhani has said his re-election shows What were the results?
Turnout in the election was unexpectedly high, at about 70%.
And this is thought to have helped Mr Rouhani, who received close to 23 million votes out of the 40 million that were cast.
His main challenger, former prosecutor Ebrahim Raisi received 38.5%, or 15.7 million votes, which was not enough to take the election to a second round.
voters reject extremism and want more links with the outside world.

After avoiding a run-off with a 57% outright victory over his main rival, Mr Rouhani said he respected his opponents' right to criticise him.

Mr Rouhani, 68, supports the landmark deal to curb Iran's nuclear programme.

The decisive victory gives him a strong mandate to seek reforms and revive the country's ailing economy, analysts say.

"The Iranian nation has chosen the path of interaction with the world, a path which is distant from extremism and violence," Mr Rouhani said in his first speech after the victory, broadcast on state television.

"The election is now over. I am the president of the nation and need assistance from every single Iranian, even those who oppose me and my policies."

Mr Rouhani also thanked former reformist President Mohammad Khatami, apparently defying a media ban on citing the ex-leader's name.

Survivors of infamous 1921 Tulsa race riot still hope for justice

TULSA, Okla. — They called it Black Wall Street. It was only a 1-square-It was only a 1-square-mile area on the north side of Tulsa, but for blacks in the 1900s, Greenwood was everything the South was not. Filled with black lawyers, doctors and business owners, flush with prosperity, here was an area where African-Americans finally had a chance to make something of themselves, escaping the harsh racism of a nation that deprived them of even the most basic dignities.

A dollar would circulate 19 times before leaving Greenwood, a byproduct of the segregation laws, which kept blacks from shopping anywhere else but also united the community financially. There was affluence and education in Greenwood not seen anywhere else in the country for African-Americans, and each day more people were coming to carve out a piece of the dream for themselves, adding to the prosperity of the neighborhood.

This was the town Olivia Hooker was born in, the place she called home as a little girl, an African-American child oblivious to the racism plaguing the country until the day in 1921 when all of her neighborhood would be wiped off the map in the space of a day: the bank, the elegant brick homes, the Red Wing Hotel, Mann’s Grocery, the Dreamland Theatre, even her father’s department store, the Sam D. Hooker Store at 124 Greenwood Avenue. On May 30, 1921, a young black man was accused of assaulting a white woman. That accusation was the tipping point for a town already reeling from racial tension, and would turn into the worst 24 hours in the city’s history, known as the Tulsa Race Riot. Hooker is 99 now, a retired teacher living in White Plains, New York. But when the riot happened, she was 6, exposed for the first time to the brutal realities of discrimination and hatred. She was devastated.

“And so when this terrible thing happened, it really destroyed my faith in humanity,” she said. “And it took a good long while for me to get over it.”

Decades later, interracial marriage is now the highest its ever been in the United States, up 14 percent compared to what it was in 1967 when the courts ruled in favor of Richard and Mildred Loving, an interracial couple who were thrown in jail in Virginia for violating the state’s rules against multicultural love.

Only 3 percent of couples in the country had intermarried at the time of the ruling, but by 2015, 17 percent of newlyweds in the U.S. had a spouse from a different racial background, according to U.S. Census Bureau data reviewed by the Pew Research Center in a report released Wednesday. The increase is the highest it’s ever been, with interracial marriages of black people nearly tripling from 5 percent to 18 percent since 1980. White newlyweds with spouses of a different ethnicity have also increased, from 4 percent to 11 percent since 1980.

Israelis on edge before Trump visit

Jerusalem (CNN)Only days before President Donald Trump visits Jerusalem, Israeli politicians describe an atmosphere of "nervousness" and "confusion." One politician put it more bluntly. "No one has any idea what the plan is." A changing schedule and shifting locations have made planning for the visit difficult. Trump was scheduled to give his keynote address at Masada, a desert fortress on a mountain. It would've been a dramatic background for a speech, but the location itself was puzzling. Masada's symbolism is controversial -- the story involves a mass Jewish self-sacrifice some 2000 years ago. And the ancient palace is a difficult place to reach, lacking the facilities to easily host a presidential speech with hundreds of attendees.

Approval of President Trump drops to lowest since inauguration: Reuters/Ipsos poll

The May 14-18 opinion poll found that 38 percent of adults approved of Trump while 56 percent disapproved. The remaining 6 percent had "mixed feelings."  Among Republicans, 23 percent expressed disapproval of Trump in the latest poll, up from 16 percent in the same poll last week. The decline in support from Republicans appears to be a primary reason why Trump's overall approval rating is now at the lowest level since he took office.

Now that an independent investigator is handling the Trump world, a lot of things will come to light, and fraud isn't something that need to be determined by Trump, because he has already paid $25 Million for one instance of fraud.

The Money Laundering Techniques, as described by Leo Getz, is the A Manafort spokesperson said the $3.5 million loan was repaid in December, but also said paperwork showing the repayment was not filed until he was asked about the loan by NBC News.

News of the missing documents comes as New York Attorney General Eric Schneiderman is taking a "preliminary look" at his real estate transactions, including the $3.5 million loan, according to a source familiar with the matter.technique of taking a loan, with the understanding that loan was never intended to be paid back, and oh by the way, the individual, can claim interest paid on the loan that he/she never paid.

This is exactly what Mr. Manafort is/has done, and there ain't no 2 ways about it.  This is standard in the industry of big money and property, because it is the best way to clean illegally attained money...

Interesting how drug dealers haven't figure how to use this money laundering technique.

White Collar Crimes...  often go un punished.

This is the epitome of a "Hypocrisy".

A man who pleaded for empathy, claiming that he "made a mistake" in his speaking and documenting of his own history, when his lie should have caused him to be charged with "Perjury" for lying to a federal inquiry... now wants the book thrown at others.

Flight Cancellations Cause Chaos at Florida Airport

Value the Money that you spend, and

We continue to allow ourselves to be treated in the manner that Twenty-eight more were canceled by Tuesday morning.

"This slowdown is in direct violation of the [Railway Labor Act], which prohibits work slowdowns and strikes during collective bargaining negotiations, as expressly recognized by a series of court decisions, including by this Circuit in Delta Air Lines v. Air Line Pilots Association, International," the lawsuit states.businesses choose to treat us, rather than, demanding that we be treated like a person that is spending their individual hard earned money.

The Airline Industry, have treated citizens like worthless objects for decades, to the extent that they have reduced your leg room that allows them to pack you into a flight that limits your individual space to the size of a 2X2 tube,

and citizens pony up valuable cash for this mistreatment, as if citizens have no choice.

Here's your solution...,

choose not to use a specific airline if "1" employee doesn't observe the required politeness that you deserve as a customer.

Choose not to fly out of a specific airport if "1" instance of discomfort takes place.

By choosing not to fly on a specific airline, or fly out of a specific airport, you retain your individual power, and you remove your notch of funding from the airline and airport.

Enough people choosing not to be subjected to piss poor treatment, the power will return to the customer.

GOP Health Bill Leaves Many 'Pre-Existing Condition' Protections Up To States Listen· 3:30

Never Believe in anything that

"You Can't Control"

The reality for every American Citizens is,

When Ryan was born in 2014, his mouth wasn't connected to his stomach. It's a condition known asesophageal atresia. After three months in a hospital in St. Louis, the family flew to Boston, where Ryan had surgery.

The surgery worked. Ryan is active and can eat normally — he had two big pieces of fruit leather and some crackers in the 45 minutes I was there. But all that time in the hospital was expensive.

you will need medical attention at some point in your life.

When "you" are delivered to the doors of your local hospital, or when you drive your self to the local hospital,
then and only then, will you become intimately introduced to the quality of your health care, and the quality of the entire

U.S. Health Care System.

At that time, it won't matter where you stand on this health care issue, and at that time, it won't matter if you have obamacare, or what ever the label is, for the type of health care that you have,

because, if you don't have health care, then your subjected to the system and all of it's flaws, without any means of defense.

If you have a health care of any kind, when you find yourself in the system, you will see all types of people who are being subjected to the same system of debacle that you are,

and just as they are nothing more that a number on a peace of paper, so to, will you become, nothing more than a number.

No One Wins,

if any "1", is mistreated, under valued, or unable to pay for his/her health care.

Residents told to avoid Ky. town over white nationalist, counter rallies

The Rise of the Radical Majority

Emboldened by a known racist that currently reside in the office of http://www.msn.com/en-us/news/us/residents-told-to-avoid-ky-town-over-white-nationalist-counter-rallies/ar-BBAwS9tPresident, the Radical Racist Americans, forced to hold their tongues for the past decade, now have an entire administration to support their disposition.

The signs of Presidential office support for the RR is within those whom this president assigned to the most powerful offices in the U.S.A.

A Murdered Black Man in L.A., causing the uprise of anger all across this nation, has been declined prosecution by the Federal Justice Department, now ran by a known racist in the name of Sessions, who lied  his way into office, and now he begins to make his presence known to the American South.

Just as Boston Red Sox Baseball Players are verbally assaulted by racial slurs by the fans, the silence of the fan sitting right beside the racist, who refuse to challenge the racist verbal assault,

emboldens the racist fan to speech out louder and more often because there is no fear of those in his own race who would stand against his racist words and racist behavior.

ICE data shows half of immigrants arrested in raids had traffic convictions or no record

Harassment for Minor Criminal Offenses

There is an American Value that is implicit that speaks to the un-Records provided by congressional aides Friday offered the most detailed look yet at the 

backgrounds of the individuals rounded up and targeted for deportation in early February by Immigration and Customs Enforcement agents assigned to regional offices in Los Angeles, Chicago, Atlanta, San Antonio and New York.

Two people had been convicted of homicide, 80 had been convicted of assault, and 57 had convictions for “dangerous drugs.” Many of the most serious criminals were given top billing in ICE nnecessary harassment of American Citizens by Law Enforcement.

Minor Criminal Offensiveness resulting in the un necessary stop and identify tactics employed by the local police officers amount to nothing less than harassment,

and it the shoe was on the other foot, the amount of wining by the Republicans would be biblical..

Racism in the 21st Century is in full effect and no human being in America can deny what the mal treatment of Hispanics can, otherwise, be categorized as.

Asians, the largest growing American demographics have been thoroughly intimidated to the extent that they are un willing to speak out, regarding their feelings of the hypocrite that takes place on a day to day bases.

However..., the American demographics change,

when understood by the non White American Citizens, will come to realize that simply voting as one voice can yield extreme power to defend themselves against the unconscionable abuses.

Myron Rolle's journey from NFL to neurosurgery

(CNN)When Myron Rolle, 30, begins his neurosurgery residency at Harvard Medical School and Massachusetts General Hospital in June, he will be making history.

Before him, "there hasn't really been anybody who I saw doing NFL and neurosurgery," the 6-foot-2 former NFL player said in an interview with CNN's chief medical correspondent, Dr. Sanjay Gupta.

Now, Rolle will be treating patients and training amid concerns and contention within the medical field about the safety of American football. He wants to help his two worlds -- medicine and football -- find common ground, he said.

Not until "toward the end of my career, I started to think about concussions and what the effects of repetitive concussions can do," he said.

"Football has done so much for me, given me friends, family, given me life lessons that now I can use in the operating room or just as a leader," he said. "I would hate to see it go, and I would love to see it around."

Thomas re-aggravated the injury during the third quarter of Friday night’s conference finals loss to the Cavs, a frustrating 130-86 blowout that put Cleveland up 2-0 in the series.

"Isaiah has worked tirelessly to manage this injury since it first occurred," said Celtics Chief Medical Officer Dr. Brian McKeon. "The swelling increased during the first two games against Cleveland, and in order to avoid more significant long-term damage to his hip, we could no longer allow him to continue."

When Life Decides For you

 

 

What is the definition of Life?

 

 

Life is an
“Existence”, an “Entity”,
and within,

are

parameters that define behavior,

parameters that define rules,

parameters that define acceptable and

unacceptable conscious thoughts,

and

parameters that must be met in order to

exist or suffer the consequences of

life’s disciplines for not following

the rules of life.

 

There are “2” levels of Life:

 

Level 1.

 

The level of life that each individual controls

for his/her entire life,

or:

 

Level 2.

 

The world life level that controls “all” life.

 

The Rules are the same for each level of life,

lying on the individual life level

can equal heart ache, but,

lying on the “all life” level,

can cause one to be in “jail”,

either way,

there are consequences

for any act or action

at both levels.

 

Advise:

 

Always control your life

and your individual level,

and

always avoid

“all life level”

to control you.

 

When Life Decides For the Individual

 

Everyone is free to decide

for himself/herself,

and it’s his/her decisions that give

all the choice to choose to do

the right things every day.

 

It’s the individual’s

choice to be an A student,

it’s the individual’s choice to play sports,

it’s the individual’s choice to respect others,

it’s the individual’s choice to ask for forgiveness

when we harm others with our acts or actions.

 

Life is an entity that each one of us possesses,

and it’s up to each and every individual

to nurture one’s life to the extent that,

you are in control of your own life

and its

welfare, happiness,

and it’s path.

 

However,

there are some who find themselves

not appreciating the freedom of enjoying

the pleasures of guiding his/her

life in the positive directions,

such as guiding one’s life through college,

guiding one’s life in the direction of

becoming a professional athlete,

and/or

guiding one’s life in any

well respected direction

that would ensure that each individual’s pleasures

are designed and implemented

by the individual for

his/her individualism.

 

But,

what happens when the individual

no longer is free to choose

which direction his/her

life will go?

 

Example 1:

when a young 20 year old man

finds a nice mate,

one that he really enjoys being with,

and not more that 2 months into this wonderful relationship, the mate finds herself

“expecting your child”!!!

 

Example 2:

When a good person with a good heart,

studies well, and enjoys the life of learning

through his/her mid 20s,

and as a result of perhaps

a instance of bad judgment,

he/she gets caught driving under the influence,

and ends up with a DUI.

 

These 2 examples

of individual life scenarios that provide

“World Life”

with the controls of ones boat of life,

in that,

the external life decides for the individual…,

which path he/she will travel,

based on the individuals own acts or actions,

that yielded the controls of

one’s individual life to

the external life.

 

World Life in Control

 

Once the external life

has been blessed with the controls

of one’s individual life,

it’s the external life that reduces

the 20 year old doors of opportunity,

and each door that the external life provides

are doors that force the individual

into nothing but

responsible life style type decisions.

 

The individual no longer

have the option to choose

between taking on a college life style,

and venturing outside of the U.S.

to study abroad.

 

Life says “no”

to the 20 year old…,

you now have a child,

and your options are as follows:

The Military……

that’s all.

 

Life forces the individual

into the direction that ensures

that his/her responsibilities are met,

in that,

the 20 year old male must have an income

that supports his child,

and the job must be a type that will train

while earning a pay check

every two weeks.

 

Life says to the DUI victim,

“your life will now be carefully scrutinized

by all future job opportunities,

regardless of your success in academia”.

 

You are now in the category of

a DUI Driver,

which closes a huge number of

doors of individual pleasures,

and life says you are forced

into the direction of sticking with the company

that you’re currently working for,

at a pay scale

that will not meet the college level

degree that you have attained.

 

These Two examples

of how Life controlling ones individual life,

forces the individual

to become something that will allow

that individual to provide for himself/herself,

based on the individuals situation

that requires prudent decisions,

and practical decisions, which are often times,

the mature adult decision for the scenario.

 

World Life Controls can have an ending

 

World Life can have an ending,

pending on the specific scenario

that the individual is in,

example:

 

Jail time will depend on the crime committed,

and once released;

the individual can retain

some degree of individual life controls.

 

For the 20 year old that was guided

into the military by life,

after 20 years,

his child has graduated high school,

and is going to college,

or is going into the military...,

that former 20 year old is now 40....;

 

He is now being handed back the controls of his individual life…,

for him to control.

 

And once again,

he can choose to enjoy being in control

of his individual life, or,

he can do something that causes

Life to take control once again.

 

Always decide well,

Always plan your future

and

stick to your plan,

and by doing so,

you will always remain in control of

both “Life’s”

Former U.S. Navy admiral sentenced to 18 months in bribery scandal

Perfect Candidate for the

Trump Administration...

Busted and Disgraced Naval Admiral for accepting "Bribes",

Former U.S. Navy Rear Admiral Robert Gilbeau, 56, of San Diego,

pleaded guilty last year to lying when he told federal agents he had not

received gifts from Malaysian businessman Leonard Francis, the owner of a Singapore-based defence contractor. 

Gilbeau, who became the first active-duty admiral ever convicted of a federal crime, was subsequently 

demoted to captain. 

Gilbeau's case is part of a long-running criminal probe known as the Fat Leonard case, in reference to a nickname for Francis.

"It is truly a sombre day,” acting U.S. Attorney Alana Robinson said in a statement. which makes this individual a perfect employ to work for this Trump Administration.

Trump himself...

has paid $millions in Fraud,

his first national

security officer is now under investigation for miss representation and possible spying for Turkey and Russia,

his most trusted advisor is a right wing racist,

he is surrounded by a legion of individual's who are

willing to lie for him at the drop of a dime, and he demands

loyalty from anyone and everyone who serves und

er his direction.

Perfect job for a former Naval Admiral willing to take Bribes, which suggests that he is a man of flawed character....

when others would charge one of not having these qualities infused in their person.

Today..., these words are the words that I could not even imagine using when describing those elected and are sitting in the seats of power and authority, because they have sold their

gift, or lobbyist who would rub their ego.
