THE URBAN TRANSLATOR WROTE:
"Mr. President, Our Commander in Chief all I can say is TO GOD BE THE GLORY!! For allowing you and the other Nations to stand together UNITED IN PEACE in this righteous endeavor. May GOD bless you all and may he keep you safe."
Today, the United States, together with our allies and partners, reached a historic understanding with Iran.
If fully implemented, this framework will prevent Iran from obtaining a nuclear weapon, making our nation, our allies, and our world safer.
For decades, Iran has been advancing its nuclear program. When I took office, Iran was operating thousands of centrifuges -- which can produce the materials for a nuclear bomb -- and was concealing a secret nuclear facility. I made it clear that the United States was prepared to find a diplomatic resolution, if Iran came to the table in a serious way.
But that didn't happen.
So we rallied the world to impose the toughest sanctions in history, profoundly impacting Iran's economy. Sanctions couldn't stop Iran's nuclear program on their own, but they helped bring Iran to the negotiating table.
And after many months of tough and principled diplomacy, the United States -- joined by the United Kingdom, France, Germany, Russia, China, and the European Union -- achieved the framework for a deal that will cut off every pathway Iran could take to develop a nuclear weapon.
I want you to understand exactly what this deal entails:
First, it stops Iran from pursuing a bomb using plutonium, because Iran will not develop weapons-grade plutonium. The core of its reactor at Arak will be dismantled and replaced. The spent fuel from that facility will be shipped out of Iran for the life of the reactor. Iran will not build a new heavy-water reactor. And Iran will never reprocess fuel from its existing reactors.
Second, it shuts down Iran's path to a bomb using enriched uranium. Iran has agreed to reduce its installed centrifuges by two-thirds. It will no longer enrich uranium at its Fordow facility, and it will not enrich uranium with its advanced centrifuges for at least the next 10 years. And the vast majority of its stockpile of enriched uranium will be neutralized.
Third, it provides the best possible defense against Iran's ability to pursue a nuclear weapon in secret. Iran has agreed to the most robust and intrusive inspections and transparency regime ever negotiated for any nuclear program in history. International inspectors will have unprecedented access not only to Iranian nuclear facilities, but to the entire supply chain that supports Iran's nuclear program -- from uranium mills that provide the raw materials, to the centrifuge production and storage facilities that support the program.
If Iran cheats, the world will know.
In return for Iran's actions, the international community has agreed to provide Iran with relief from certain sanctions -- our own sanctions, and international sanctions imposed by the United Nations Security Council. This relief will be tied to the steps Iran takes to adhere to the deal. And if Iran violates the deal, sanctions can be snapped back into place. Meanwhile, other American sanctions on Iran -- for its support of terrorism, its human rights abuses, and its ballistic missile program -- will be fully enforced.
Now, our work is not yet done. Negotiators will continue to work through the details of how this framework will be fully implemented, and those details matter. And let me be clear: If Iran backslides, and the verification and inspection mechanisms don't meet the specifications of our nuclear and security experts, there will be no deal.
But if we can get this done, and Iran follows through on the framework that our negotiators agreed to, we will be able to peacefully resolve one of the gravest threats to the security of our nation, our allies, and the world.

President Barack Obama
Former State Sen. James Meeks on Friday endorsed Mayor Rahm Emanuel in the April 7 runoff, arguing that Emanuel took an unfair political “beating” among black voters for closing a record 50 public schools. “I don’t believe that the mayor intended to harm one child or one family by closing the schools.
I believe that everything he did involving education he did it so that all schoolchildren in the city of Chicago would have a safe and a better school to go to,” Meeks said. “I know that some of you are wondering about school closings and how can we support the mayor. Because we don’t believe that the mayor had in his heart an intent to harm one child. He looks at every child as if he looks at his own child.
Every time a child is hurt, shot, murdered, anything happens, the mayor is there. It’s not in his heart to want to hurt children.” Last week, mayoral challenger Jesus “Chuy” Garcia rolled out an African-American endorsement a day in an effort to bolster his share of a black vote that’s virtually certain to decide the runoff
Two months after Rahm Emanuel became mayor, he stripped political power broker Jeremiah Joyce of a lucrative concessions contract at O’Hare Airport, saying the deal that spanned 19 years had cost the city millions of dollars.
Joyce, a former Chicago alderman and state senator from the 19th Ward, fought Emanuel all the way to the Illinois Supreme Court to try to maintain his stranglehold on concessions at O’Hare’s international terminal — a deal he got under his longtime ally, former Mayor Richard M. Daley. Joyce lost. Now, his son is trying to help make sure Emanuel loses, too. Mike “Pickle” Joyce has been on the campaign trail drumming up support for Emanuel’s challenger, Jesus “Chuy” Garcia, in the April 7 election.
The Joyces and Garcia haven’t always been allies. As an alderman, Garcia supported Mayor Harold Washington’s re-election in 1987, while Jeremiah Joyce plotted to defeat the city’s first African-American mayor — even considering switching parties to run as a Republican against Washington. By backing Garcia, Mike Joyce is breaking ranks with the Daleys, his family’s longtime allies, who are supporting Emanuel for mayor.
The elder Joyce acknowledges he wants Emanuel to lose and says he recently went to dinner with Garcia. But he says he has no official role with the Garcia campaign. “My son Michael is involved in it. I’m not. I’m in Florida,” says Jeremiah Joyce, 72. “If my son wants some advice from me, if Chuy wants some advice from me, I’ll be happy to give it. I wish Chuy the best.
Chuy Garcia’s so-called plan for a blue-ribbon commission to fix the city’s finances after the election fell apart in last night’s debate under withering scrutiny from Carol Marin.
In a new web video – “I Can’t Tell You Right Now” – Chicago Together is highlighting many of the moments when Chuy could have taken a stand during the debate, but punted the biggest issues and questions of the day until after the election.

Ald. Bob Fioretti said Sunday that he was endorsing Mayor Rahm Emanuel because his fiscal policy was best for Chicago. “Right now our fiscal health for this city is the No. 1 issue,” Fioretti said. “Granted, Chuy’s a nice person, but I don’t think he should be the person to run this city after the election.” Fioretti denied his support was given in exchange for Emanuel’s help in tapping his extensive list of donors to eliminate Fioretti’s campaign debt. “I would be endorsing the mayor anyway,” Fioretti said.
With little more than a week till the April 7 runoff, Chicago Sun-Times reporters spoke with Mayor Rahm Emanuel and the man he’ll face on the ballot, Cook County Commissioner Jesus “Chuy” Garcia, about their plans for handling the financial problems the city of Chicago faces and other key issues. Jesus “Chuy” Garcia says he’s looking at “modernizing” the city’s sales-tax base by expanding taxes to include certain services not now covered. He’s also considering imposing a “luxury tax” on high-cost purchases. And he’s open to a Chicago casino only if voters agree in a referendum. An edited question-and-answer session with Garcia on finances and other matters.

Mayor Rahm Emanuel has spent the past four years undoing virtually everything former Mayor Richard M. Daley did without mentioning his predecessor by name. But, there’s one thing Emanuel has in common with his mentor: turning to African-American ministers at his time of political need. Emanuel took a page from Daley’s playbook on Tuesday.
He assembled dozens of black ministers to endorse him, sing his praises from the pulpit and, on Palm Sunday, to literally lead their parishioners’ “souls to the polls.” In attendance at the political show was former Cook County Commissioner Charles Bowen, who served as Daley’s liaison to black ministers.
Standing next to Bowen at the community center across the street from Haven of Rest Missionary Baptist Church, 7901 South Chicago Ave., was former gang enforcer-turned-“urban translator” Wallace “Gator” Bradley, who has endorsed Emanuel. Daley sold vacant city lots to black churches for $1 and used city grants to maintain loyal support from the African-American clergy. During one infamous, pre-election endorsement session, the ministers prayed, “Give us this day our Daley bread.”
On Tuesday, the Rev. Albert Tyson III, presiding elder north district Chicago conference and pastor of St. Stephen A.M.E. Church, used a similar mix between the biblical and political. “We remember that the Scripture says, `Oh come, oh come, Emanuel,’” Tyson said.
The mayor was obviously pleased. “Pastor Tyson, I’m gonna have you call my parents,” Emanuel joked.
