So, she wants to give up the ability to defend herself if she’s raped?

    kentuckyliz in reply to kentuckyliz. | July 14, 2013 at 3:09 pm

    It’s only sex…why not just let him, and move on? Why did you have to kill the guy? It’s just your koochie. Do you think your koochie is worth a man’s life? Murder 2!!!

      tencz65 in reply to kentuckyliz. | July 14, 2013 at 3:19 pm

      YA !! and if Murder 2 doesn’t work, we’ll spin it like Lefty’s do . 2nd charge . Being in Commission of a Felony in progress . You going down .

      now i have No idea if the 2nd charge is even anywhere near real . But it’s the thought that counts for them !

      MarkS in reply to kentuckyliz. | July 14, 2013 at 3:32 pm

      Now you know that Liberals don’t feel the laws they inflict upon us apply to them

    Easy… just curl up into a fetal position, beg for mercy, cry, piss yourself, crap yourself, puke yourself and otherwise try to make yourself unattractive and unappealing to the attacker. If that doesn’t work, just lay back and try to enjoy it because it will be over soon.

      Well don’t leave out Republicans.

      You can’t get pregnant from rape.

        Are some of your closest friends Republicans?

        Voluble in reply to MSimon. | July 14, 2013 at 6:09 pm

        The difference being that not getting pregnant from rape is not a Republican position but the claptrap about how to act while being raped is official policy at many left wing institutions.

        Care to try again? You can always quote an idiot here or there but it is a mistake in logic to assign their beliefs to anyone else but them when it is not policy or a widespread belief amongst their group.

        In short, your comment failed even as snark.

It is scary that someone who is a commentator for Foxnews could have absorbed so little of the actual testimony.

    Think she’s bad, listen to Juan Williams. He still thinks TM was killed just because he was carrying Skittles

      Aridog in reply to MarkS. | July 14, 2013 at 3:55 pm

      I’ve almost concluded that all mass media outfits are hyperbole shills at vest. Even Fox has now go a full stable of idiots “for balance” and some are so mendacious that they just have to acting stooges. Powers, Williams, et al comments on Fox do not surprise me a bit. Not even a little. They are paid to be absurd and perform as paid. That all other MSM outlets are even worse is stunning.

Kristen Powers, just another ignoramus.

    nomadic100 in reply to Charleybull33. | July 14, 2013 at 4:40 pm

    Every now and again Kirsten gives off evanescent signs of reasonableness, but I think the Martin issue cuts very close to the core of a number of fundamental progressive concerns.

    She’s often spoken out and taken positions contrary to prescribed leftist narratives and I’ve admired her for having the strength to do so, but on this occasion she’s just willingly suspending reason, ignorantly so it would appear.

Dumb blonde?

I’m shaking my head at what The President just said: here is his comment, verbatim:

“The death of Trayvon Martin was a tragedy. Not just for his family, or for any one community, but for America. I know this case has elicited strong passions. And in the wake of the verdict, I know those passions may be running even higher. But we are a nation of laws, and a jury has spoken. I now ask every American to respect the call for calm reflection from two parents who lost their young son. And as we do, we should ask ourselves if we’re doing all we can to widen the circle of compassion and understanding in our own communities. We should ask ourselves if we’re doing all we can to stem the tide of gun violence that claims too many lives across this country on a daily basis. We should ask ourselves, as individuals and as a society, how we can prevent future tragedies like this. As citizens, that’s a job for all of us. That’s the way to honor Trayvon Martin.”

    kentuckyliz in reply to eosredux. | July 14, 2013 at 3:20 pm

    So POTUS will refuse to address pathological masculinity among teen and young adult black men? Utterly silent about the foolishness of launching an aggravated assault?

      dust92 in reply to kentuckyliz. | July 14, 2013 at 4:23 pm

      It’s true. The best way to honor Trayvon is to take an honest look at this kid and why he became this way. This street fighter who was kicked out of his home by his mom, who was caught with property from a B&E, who was selling guns and using drugs. Why did this kid get this way? I think a lot of the answer is involved in how everyone has refused to hold him responsible for any of his behavior, instead leaping to ridiculous racial grievances. This street fighter ultimately died when a man defended himself, according to a unanimous jury, the original chief of police, and the investigator, not to mention all the evidence.

      How does it honor Trayvon to make this about a nationwide call for gun control? Trayvon would still be alive if he had realized that other people might be carrying a gun, so it’s stupid to attack them.

      Aridog in reply to kentuckyliz. | July 14, 2013 at 5:25 pm

      That’s because he is a punk himself. If surprised in the dark by someone he’d be v-e-r-y relived if it was a white guy in sports clothes, guys like like his white house staff, rather than some gang bangers from Chicago. Jesse Jackson said as much years ago. The hype promoters know their own weaknesses and now and then they slip and let it show.

      Mister Natural in reply to kentuckyliz. | July 14, 2013 at 5:33 pm

      well the POTUS/HNIC didn’t get the NOBEL prize for nothing.

      JohnC in reply to tencz65. | July 14, 2013 at 3:33 pm

      His goal is to foment unrest.
      To that end their dead bodies serve no purpose while TM’s does.
      It’s really that cut and dry.

      That’s exactly how I read it too

      JackRussellTerrierist in reply to Hockey Bum. | July 14, 2013 at 5:18 pm

      The adminstration doesn’t need anymore egg on its face over this. The FBI already determined GZ did not act out of racial animus, open file still or not. The ‘open file’ is just to placate the black rabble-rousers. There’s no federal interest here. GZ was not a police officer and there is no evidence that the shooting was racially motivated, so there’s no way to make a civil rights violation case. This ‘right to life’ claim is absurd on its face.

      The federal thing is going nowhere.

      It’s very unfortunate that so many Americans are so colossally stupid and/or ignorant.

      wyntre in reply to Hockey Bum. | July 14, 2013 at 5:34 pm

    Hussein goes full Community Agitator, lumping this incident in with all “gun violence.” Nothing but hate spews from his mouth.

    Basically, we are now all guilty. We need to look hard and find that creepy-ass cracker hidden inside us that prevents us from widening “the circle of compassion and understanding in our own communities.” Makes me sick.

      raven in reply to JerryB. | July 14, 2013 at 3:37 pm

      Is this a suprise? He’s doing exactly what we all should have known he would do.

      Like everything in life, this is just another opportunity for his cause. The killing of Martin was an opportunity when he needed to gin up the black vote in Florida. The trial was an opportunity to advance the racist Narrative. Now the verdict is an opportunity.

      I’m sorry to say this, but we need to adopt the same way of thinking. This verdict can also an opportunity for us. To take on the media for its spectacular calumny and irresponsibility, to take on the race hustlers, to take on the myths of gun control, to take on the President.

      But that’s too distasteful for us. We’re too respectful. We just want things to go back to normal.

      Well, they’re never going back.

        Self-defense should not be considered violent. It’s just what it is – self-defense in response to violence. Let’s not have Trademark’s violent act seed over to GZ’s rebuttal to that violence.

    fogflyer in reply to eosredux. | July 14, 2013 at 3:31 pm

    I really thought O’Bama would remain silent after the verdict.
    Boy was l wrong.

    He calls to HONOR Trayvon Martin!?!?!?
    Seriously!?!?!?

    Oh, let’s all honor “No Limit Nigga” who was a young man whose only crime was walking home from the store with a pack of candy and deciding to brutally attack and beat a man who had the gall to look at him the wrong way.

    Yes, let’s honor Trayvon, only 21 days past his 17th birthday, who had already been in numerous fights, suspended from school, caught with stolen jewelry and burglary tools. Little Trayvon who had texts regarding buying and selling handguns and prolific drug use.

    I was upset when O’Bama made his first statement, but I gave him the benefit of the doubt and thought he might just be uninformed as to the realities of the case.

    Well, this time he has no such excuse.

    Mr. President, I am disgusted that you would call upon people to honor Trayvon Martin, while allowing George Zimmerman, an innocent man, to continue to be portrayed as a racist murderer. You have done this country a great disservice sir.

      Uncle Samuel in reply to fogflyer. | July 14, 2013 at 4:03 pm

      The lawyer and cell phone expert witness stated that pornography was found on Trayvon Martin’s phone.

      Sooner or later that information and his history will come out. Trayvon’s school record, tattoos, obscene gestures, gold tooth grids, drugs, evidence of burglary, pornography, obscene references to sex and women, fighting, guns, racial threats will let the world know who Trayvon Martin really was and who he wanted to be.

      In a very short time, Trayvon went from drugs to burglary to assault to attempted murder to death at age 17.

      His descent to crime almost took the life and liberty of an innocent and decent human being, champion of the underdogs, friend and mentor of fatherless children and comforter of crime victims, George Zimmerman.

        legacyrepublican in reply to Uncle Samuel. | July 14, 2013 at 5:03 pm

        I agree. But, until then, when someone like this ill informed lady says something this stupid, I am going to say …

        From the time Zimmerman saw him running to the time the fight started, Trayvon disappeared from GZ’s sight and 4 minutes elapsed.

        If Trayvon was as scared as you say he was, then why not take his cell phone and dial 911 instead of his girlfriend and tell them that a “creepy ass cracker” was following him and he was afraid for his life in those four minutes?

        Sounds to me like Trayvon was using her as an alibi to justify his violent actions.

          Just guessing, but looking at pictures of the mature Trayvon and then Rachel Jeantell….I’d guess (please, really?) he barely knew her or let alone wanted to…but she might have been a convenient stooge from a list of street corner hangers on. My experience in some local mostly black clubs is that guys like Trayvon don’t spend much time with girls like Rachel. I mean, why would they? Must be just bigoted ole me.

          Ah, MSimon. So right on this post: it’s not the pot, it’s not the porn. It’s the thug culture, which is far, far different and much, much worse.

          And yet, so wrong on the Akin post on this thread.

          No serious Republican supported Akin’s stupid — politically stupid and biologically stupid — statement. In fact, the Tea Party supported his opponent in the primary, and the Democrat actually campaigned against his opponents in order to get the weakest challenger. So Akin’s stupidity isn’t Republican stupidity. (Not that it doesn’t exist.)

    gravedancer in reply to eosredux. | July 14, 2013 at 3:45 pm

    We dont have to ask ourselves how we could have avoided this. Its very simple. Trayvon “the trademark” Martin should have grown up as something other than a wannabe thug, or failing that, he should have checked to see if the guy he wanted to pick a fight with was armed BEFORE assaulting him. I love how the media still keeps (incorrectly) reporting that Zimmerman got out of his car and followed martin after being asked not to by the dispatch (as if that instruction was legally binding anyway), when the testimony and 911 recordings showed Zimm was already out of his car when the dispatcher said “we dont need you to do that”. And even if events did transpire just as those idiots claim… it was still Martin who turned the confrontation physical. CNN is actually reporting that Zimmerman “picked a fight” with martin simply by the act of following him.

      wyntre in reply to gravedancer. | July 14, 2013 at 4:41 pm

      “. . . left-leaning media were fond of repeating false statements favorable to the prosecution such as the claim that Zimmerman got out of his car despite being instructed to remain in it. In fact, he was already out of his car when the 911 dispatcher told him “we don’t need you to do that.” According to Zimmerman, he turned around and tried to return to his vehicle and was subsequently confronted by Martin.”

      SmokeVanThorn in reply to gravedancer. | July 14, 2013 at 7:27 pm

      Apparently, Powers, CNN et al think that it’s just fine for someone to launch a murderous physical attack on another person who’s following him. I see “reporters” chasing people all the time, hounding them with questions.

      Just sayin’

    byondpolitics in reply to eosredux. | July 14, 2013 at 3:47 pm

    Nice spin to try to make this about guns #eyeroll. Death is always tragic but not every death is a national tragedy that demands millions of dollars of attention. This case elicited strong passions because our President mistakeningly (but not unsurprisingly) made it about him. Calm reflection would have been appropriate back in early 2012.

    It would be appropriate for our President and our Attorney General to widen their own circles of compassion and understanding to include all of us, including Mr. Zimmerman. I would have assumed that he was someone who was doing all he could to stem the tide of violence and crime by becoming involved in his neighborhood.

    Future tragedies like this can best be prevented when parents take responsibility for supervising their truant, violent children before they aimlessly wander around looking for trouble on a short walk to their father’s girlfriend’s house.

    “We should ask ourselves, as individuals and as a society, how we can prevent future tragedies like this.”

    um, for starters, how about not skulking around communities at night in rainstorms in dark clothing. Then you could add not getting thrown out of school for having burglary tools and stolen items in your backpack. And finally, how about not attacking a guy in the neighborhood because he spotted you skulking around and called the police.

    If Trayvon hadn’t been an ambitious young thug on the make, he would be alive today.

    You need to watch the entire statement carefully.
    Before President Obama makes his statement and launches a cheap PR event to champion his cause, he begins with stating he needs to be careful not to say anything that may affect an investigation ( His DOJ ) ( And pending charges )
    Immediately thereafter the DOJ announces an investigation.
    Really. On Sunday.
    I wonder how many months have they been working on it.

You’re surprised that Powers turns out to be out to be another empty suit?

I truly believe any people saying what she said would feel ALoT differently if their heads were being bashed on concrete.

BTW as far as I know CNN was the only major cable network that offered gavel to gavel coverage of the trial.

I am NoT pleased w/ any of the media, but at Least CNN offered more than spun clips.

Yes CNN spun, but I do give CNN credit for Also letting me witness the trial for myself – though even their commentary finally drove me to Thankfully find LI coverage.

So what was reported in the media during the lynching is gospel, but the evidence presented in a court of law must be fabricated, or massaged or something.

Go help the defendant if she is ever on a Jury

She gives new meaning to percipient.

rustypaladin | July 14, 2013 at 3:29 pm

Completely ignoring the substantial evidence that Martin attacked Zimmerman, is it socially acceptable to beat up the creepy guy how is following you in the dark, smahing his head into the concrete for 40+ seconds? Who knew?

If I had a juror, she would look like Kirsten Powers. Oh, wait …

The Southern Poverty Law Center sent me a note asking me to consider:

“Was race at the heart of it? Ask yourself this question: If Zimmerman had seen a white youth walking in the rain that evening, would he have seen him as one of “them,” someone about to get away with something? ”

    In answer, for you, to the SPLC…NO! It seldom, if ever is, in situations like that gated community. Full disclosure: I am delighted with the trail outcome.

    This trial was very personal to me, because George Zimmerman did nothing, except shoot somebody in the process, that I haven’t done regularly over the past 30 years I have lived in the city. My neighbors are no different, we pay attention to strangers or people otherwise acting strangely. We usually prefer ball bats. We look out for each other. We are Arab [mostly now], Irish-American, Polish-American, Czech-American, Slovak-American, African-American, Italian-American, Maltese-American, Mexican-American and sundry other ethnic descendants. We are Americans first and all….even the green card holders. We are an old 1945 neighborhood, in a community that dates back nearly 200 years, not far north of where the Black Robe Father Cadillac landed for the first time….not a “gated community”…and we do have a “Neighborhood Watch Group”…but most of us are not actively patrolers per se, or even official members. We have the best police department in the entire state…response times are minutes at most,and the take no crap. We just pay attention to strangers and weird acting folks…like those hanging out and dithering about in the rain for minutes at a time….or older teen agers, that we know are not from here, on bicycles who ride down the street slow enough to wobble while their bobble heads swing 180 degrees left and right slowly, examining every yard and driveway. Hello? Eh, what’s that you say…your lawn mower disappeared in flash yesterday?

    My neighbors and I could easily be the next George Zimmerman, especially if we lived in Florida with gutless politicians.

    do not be offending. I gave the thumbs down to the racially biased SPLC.

Again proving she wasn’t hired for her brains.

Remember this is a woman who once dated Anthony Weiner – and HE broke up with HER!

Need I say more?

What’s *really* scary is that people listen to this silly b****.

As we can readily see…

the media has not yet finished earning our contempt and disgust.

Unlike Ms. Powers, the ladies on the jury actually learned the facts of the case, and made their decision based on the evidence and the law.

But that’s way too much trouble for Ms. Powers. Far easier just to keep parroting the fairy tale version of the incident that was created by the racial grievance industry.

Never let any actual facts or evidence get in the way of a good “progressive” narrative, right Kirsten?

KP is definitely not the sharpest knife in the drawer, but unlike many of the Left, she is capable of learned and even admitting her errors. Sometimes.

At least that is my not very humble opinion. It is a business. They get paid to say what they are scripted to say. I want “news” I will come here and a few other websites and skip the television except for amusement. I’ve spent a life raising horses and dogs…which means I am highly experienced with handling crap and in this case I have no convenient “manure spreader” to disperse it.

If Martin was a white youth, who was high, wondering around a community that had been robbed numerous times, backtracked and assaulted Zimmerman with the same outcome, you can bet all the Hispanic groups would have been out in full force on Zimmermans behalf.

This was entirely about race. The fact Martin assaulted Zimmerman apparently has nothing to do with things as the NAACP is concerned. That is the true tragedy.

Idiot Spitzer just chimed in, “Make love, not war.”

Half-witted demmocratic pundits are something I expect to hear prattle on in such a maner. If one wants pure unmitigated self-serving lies check out the Corey witch trial aftermath presser.

When asked about firing her I.T. she referred to the termination letter and clsed questioning. Before she left the podium however, she had to give one last sop to the media for telling the truth to the American people in this matter. No kidding true story…

on this one I disagree with KP.

I’ve read one inane comment after another this morning posted (elsewhere) by people who’ve clearly not paid any attention to the trial or the evidence.

We women are so much better reflected by the members of the jury.

I’m mildly surprised, because this usually takes some degree of practice, but Robert Zimmerman has absolutely steamrolled the MSM in his on- camera interviews today. The guy is super articulate and has totally embarrassed the talking heads who have tried to scold him and take his brother apart.

Speaking of the jurors, I hope they remain safe.

I always took the mute off FOX for Judge Alex … he seemed clearest to me.

The “if only wannabe cop had obeyed and stayed in the vehicle instead of stalking” crowd have had some sort of psychotic break, ignoring all facts, and parroting the commands from above (or below).

Obviously half the population has been hypnotized and is responding to some trigger words like “Zimmerman Not Guilty”, and are in Trayvon Trance mode. There is no other reasonable explanation for such a mass hysteria.

OMG!! The Moral here is very simple: Don’t attack strangers on a sidewalk. Hmmm, which makes me think of another Irish Poem:

It’s a good thing that I don’t even know who Kirsten Powers is.

It’s like the fact that Trayvon tried to KILL Zimmerman doesn’t enter their heads, like there’s some kind of politically correct blinder on.

You know, this is really good.

Comments, tweets, and columns like this from members of the so-called press, who are supposed to be informing the public, are doing us a HUGE favor: it lets us identify the idiots who can only spout the progressive narrative, and pay no attention to facts and evidence, displaying that they are incapable of thinking on their own or being objective.

So it’s an opportunity to again sort the wheat from the chaff in the MSM.

    First they are a business that sells advertising for profit.

    Fair and balanced means they try to get entertaining controversy in all shows. They may lead with some more conservative types, since the news market is so wide open for that. But they love to have the “fair and balanced debates”, which I generally mute, since the left side is generally just the talking points, and the right is not always better.

    They seem to seek out some of the crazier types at times, to keep the viewer entertained. Keeping the pot stirred = ratings = money. (And lots of attractive women in sexy clothes helps too … but I’m old, so not that picky. lol)

      I’m not singling you out, but Iwish people would stop calling the left “progressives”. That is the moniker THEY chose for themselves when shine wore off “liberal” revealing the leftists/spcialists they really are. They stole the term “liberal” from the classic liberals of Europe who were mostly about freedom and the individual. That doesn’t fly anymore because they’ve been found out. So now they’re calling themselves “progressives”, harkening back a century ago when labor unions, shelter for orphans and women’s suffrage were reasonable goals.

      Bullsh!t.

        It’s actually an appropriate name. The Progressives of the Wilson era morphed into the Fascists of the 1920s, who in turn morphed into the more sinister National Socialists of the 1930s.

        Remember that Adolf was TIME’s “Man of the Year” at least twice.

        Also, the word liberal should always not be capitalized. It is insulting to Australians when you do that.

    She has more integrity than a great many of her ilk.

    Watch and see. She may come around. She is also smart.

This case makes me embarrassed to be liberal. :/

Powers is asserting as truth the same baseless fallacy that others on the Left and in the black community are repeating ad nauseam. There was never any evidence produced at trial to support the notion that Zimmerman “harrassed,” “confronted” or otherwise attacked Martin. On the contrary, the bulk of the evidence supported Zimmerman’s narrative that Martin — perhaps annoyed at Zimmerman following him — initiated the violent contact between the two with an unprovoked and totally unjustified attack upon the latter.

We can also reflect upon two salient ironies in the case: firstly, after all of the racial histrioncs evinced by pro-Trayvon supporters, we now know that only one of the two actors involved in the incident on that night used racial epithets in a casual and flippant manner to describe the other, befitting a racist outlook: Trayvon Martin. Secondly, only one of the two actors had a self-documented history of starting fights with people and then boasting about it afterwards to his friends: Trayvon Martin (which evidence was laughably deemed inadmissible by the judge on a bogus issue of authentication). Inconvenient facts for the pro-Martin crowd.

I watched some MSNBC this morning and learned that when a Democrat shoots a Democrat and then acquitted in a Democrat’s court the blame lies squarely on the Republicans.

    ABSOLUTELY!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    Prohibition isn’t helping either.

On Sunday afternoon, the Obama Department of Justice announced that it would pursue investigation into George Zimmerman.

That announcement came just hours after Zimmerman was acquitted for second-degree murder and manslaughter in the killing of Trayvon Martin, and within one day of the NAACP calling on the DOJ for an investigation.

Here is the Department of Justice statement in full:

As the Department first acknowledged last year, we have an open investigation into the death of Trayvon Martin. The Department of Justice’s Criminal Section of the Civil Rights Division, the United States Attorney’s Office for the Middle District of Florida, and the Federal Bureau of Investigation continue to evaluate the evidence generated during the federal investigation, as well as the evidence and testimony from the state trial. Experienced federal prosecutors will determine whether the evidence reveals a prosecutable violation of any of the limited federal criminal civil rights statutes within our jurisdiction, and whether federal prosecution is appropriate in accordance with the Department’s policy governing successive federal prosecution following a state trial.

    James IIa in reply to wyntre. | July 14, 2013 at 4:56 pm

    There’s nothing left for them to investigate. What they’re actually doing is holding brainstorming sessions to dream up a federal violation–any violation–that they can charge Zimmerman with.

    kittycat in reply to wyntre. | July 14, 2013 at 5:25 pm

    This is truly horrible. George doesn’t deserve this at all. I’m telling you, it’s time that true Americans unite over this and not let them do it. Maybe the Tea Party has some ideas. I don’t know how, but there has to be an answer. George really does have a lot of supporters and probably more than we’re aware of.

    Ragspierre in reply to wyntre. | July 14, 2013 at 6:04 pm

    “…a prosecutable violation of any of the limited federal criminal civil rights statutes within our jurisdiction…”

    And, bear in mind, those are VERY limited.

    AND there is no evidence supporting any Federal action.

    None. Zip. Nada.

    O’Mara is out pro-actively preparing the battle space, btw. This is a SERIOUSLY smart guy, who REALLY believes in his client.

I don’t know about anyone else but the fact the POS, the DOJ, the usual racebaiting suspects and lefties are not letting up on Zimmerman makes me very uneasy.

WTF are they planning?

When racebaiting extends to the top of the food chain, the POS, and is so blatantly prejudicial against a single person, in this case George Zimmerman, we should all be worried about our safety.

This is insane.

If the POS and Holdem can do this to GZ they can do it to anyone.

Think about that.

Telling the country we should HONOR a punk-a$$ gansta-wannabe is sick. That’s who the country’s role model is? And not a word about the injustice leveled against GZ.

Of COURSE this was stupid but it serves to illustrate the point. The POS put out the open season sign on those who disagree that we should “Honor” St. Skittles.

        I happen to be in one now as I’m typing this.

        Yes, it’s nice.

There are those the perpetuate lies, and those that fall prey to the lies perpetuated upon them.

Trying to figure out which is which can prove difficult.

Finding the “truth” of anything requires will and determination.

ignorance is bliss

the truth shall set you free

The problem with Kirsten Powers and all moderates is they can’t fathom that someone would want to punch them in the face, repeatedly, until they are knocked out or dead. KP has probably never been in a fight or been punched in the face. They can’t believe black thugs would rape and kill them for almost no provocation, save looking at them, which is what happened to Zimmerman. This why the country is going down, western Europe included, they just can’t seem to want to fight or appreciate when they need to fight. Recently I read that testosterone levels in western culture is down 1% per year and eventually western men will be infertile, perhaps this is the problem, courage is being bred out of men, while wealthy women can’t believe it can happen to them.

I expected as much from anyone on The Five. Some idiot at FOX News thinks 15 secs of commentary followed by 45 secs of Beavis & Butthead “pull my finger! heh! heh!” is the best thing since New Coke.

Hey FOX! If you’re going to put bimbo’s on, at least make them earn their pay with a lower cut blouse and shorter skirt. Lose the bras too.

I think I have PTSD, Post Trayvon Sarcasm Disorder, from biting my tongue around my liberal friends. Because they are truly, genuinely, and sincerely suffering over this. I don’t say anything to them because I really like these people, and it would just hurt their feelings and not do any good in the process. But it has to come out somewhere, so:

My Goodnight Prayer /sarc.

Now I lay me down to sleep,
I pray the Lord my soul to keep.
And if my liberal friends get mugged,
Please let it be a Negro thug!
So when they get a busted snout,
And all their brains are running out,
They’ll gently go to those good nights
As Champions of Civil Rights!
Amen.

Hope?

Federal case against Zimmerman would face obstacles

In his (GZ’s) case, it’s possible the Justice Department might consider using a different type of civil-rights law: the federal hate-crime statute. As in the King case, the double-jeopardy clause of the U.S. Constitution does not prohibit such a federal prosecution in the wake of Zimmerman’s state acquittal, because it’s a different jurisdiction. But legal experts said it’s going to be a formidable challenge for Attorney General Eric Holder to press forward with a hate-crime case against Zimmerman under U.S. civil rights laws, because Florida jurors found Zimmerman not guilty of both second-degree murder and manslaughter in Trayon’s death.

Jurors found that prosecutors failed to prove the more serious second-degree charge that Zimmerman, the neighborhood watchman at a Sanford gated community, possessed “ill-will,” “hatred” or “spite” in the fatal shooting of Martin. Instead, the six female jurors found that Zimmerman acted in self-defense.

Consequently, experts said, it would be legally inconsistent for the Justice Department to consider filing criminal charges against Zimmerman under the federal Shepard-Byrd Hate Crimes Prevention Act of 2009. Generally, that law prohibits someone from “willfully causing bodily injury” to another person because of his race, color, religion or national origin.

“If the state jury had been persuaded beyond a reasonable doubt that Zimmerman caused bodily harm to Trayvon Martin because of Martin’s race, it would have almost certainly convicted Zimmerman of second-degree murder, which requires proof of ‘ill-will’ or ‘malice,’” said Scott Srebnick, a prominent federal criminal defense attorney in Miami. “So, to bring a federal civil-rights prosecution against Zimmerman, the attorney general would essentially be second-guessing the state jury’s verdict as opposed to vindicating a different or broader federal interest.”

Srebnick added: “I find it doubtful that the attorney general will pursue a prosecution on a civil rights theory simply out of displeasure with the state jury’s verdict.”

Humphreys Executor | July 14, 2013 at 5:50 pm

This case has generated some kind of mass hysteria.

    Radegunda in reply to Humphreys Executor. | July 14, 2013 at 8:01 pm

    It’s a confluence of two ideological agendas: 1) the aim to outlaw weapons for self-defense; and 2) the desperate wish to find any bit of evidence to support the absurd notion that black people are constantly in danger of being attacked and killed by white racists, when in fact black-on-white violence exceeds the reverse by a large factor (about 39). The lefties thought they had a twofer.

    Some people appear to center their whole existence on claims of pervasive racial victimhood. The last two elections made the concept of “institutional racism” much harder to sustain, so the shooting of a black teenager by a “white Hispanic” was like a gift from heaven. It also (with help from Obama) has been used to feed the idiotic idea that any opposition to this administration is necessarily rooted in deep racism.

    Few of the protestors have any real concern about “justice for Trayvon.”

    I am not, nor have I ever been a single issue voter.. That said, I have decided that I will put forth a deliberate effort to find and support candidates that promise they will find any way possible to overturn that decisive, phoney, dishonest, Federal Hate Crime Legislation..

Instead of watching the trial and reporting on that, it appears that virtually all of the newspaper and television reporters and editorialists have got at least some of their impressions and “facts” from other reports and secondary sources.

This is a good lesson about how lazy, wrong, and unreliable the media now are. If they couldn’t get public, televised, and readily ascertainable facts correct, there is no hope for anything else they report or opine about.

I’m disgusted.

I saw the picture of the victim and thought the only gang that guy could have been in was the Howdy-Doody Club. Strangley, those “kids” were 18 and 19 years old, so I feel certain that the four of them felt threatened by this guy while they were just walking home from that gas station.

As usual Jazz they are rewriting everything to suit their narrative. The trial by a jury of their peers is for defendants. The race baiting has turned into hysteria, and low information voters are just parroting anything that is said by the likes of Jesse Jackson and Al Sharpton.

Carol Herman | July 14, 2013 at 6:05 pm

Okay. Obama “spoke.” He didn’t write that speech. It was written for him, and it’s conclusions were “tested” (same way Bill Clinton used to do focus groups.)

First thing to notice is that none of us here are part of the “focus group.” We’re the indians living in the village across the river.

As to Obummer giving Holder-in-up instructions to use the powers of the juice. oops. I mean justice department. To look for ways the feds can go after the zimmerman’s … I thought:

Well, that’s easy for him to say. The prez has all the powers. And, Zimmerman has none.

And, then I remembered how the prez kept promising to arm syrian rebels. While the feds also came out and told the “secret” that Israel just bombed, again, syrian stockpiles.

I read the Jerusalem Post. So I know “planes came in without leaving any radar marks.” How’d dey do dat?

They got 4 huge explosions going, because there were 4 sites that held extraordinarily new missiles and ordnance.

I figured obummer keeps wetting himself, hoping he can get some of these terrorists to attack Israel. While, obummer also wants to see russia respond to the Israelis. So, there’s nothing new. Putin is happy with Snowden. And, I doubt he’s gonna risk hitting the IDF. Especially since the Israelis didn’t lose a pilot when the “new super duper F-16’s” showed up with engine flaws.

You’re either on top of your game. Or not.

So, today, you heard what the prez had to say.

And, so far? Those GOP congress critters remain stupider. Unable to come out and say anything of value. As if, WOW, worrying about progressive opinion remains something worth bending over backwards for.

If I didn’t know what a “cakewalk” meant … And, it means “exaggerating the fine waltzes done inside high society” … I wouldn’t be at all concerned about how the GOP lacks any ability to respond to the open threats coming at our government.

It’s how obummer gets away with it.

It’s like a plague. On both houses.

Where, what I find most interesting is that, maybe, it’s preferential to have the incompetent actor. Than the crazy McPuff up McCain? Or the boozed up Boehner? Or the chinless wonder in the senate?

We can all feel like Lincoln, now.

As he saw how incompetent McClellan was. How congress kept giving McClellan all the money in the world. And, Lee was winning. (You know, white men were on both sides of that fight?)

Plus, ahead. When it comes to writing books. I’m pretty sure publishers, and Amazon, will do their best that anything beneficial to Zimmerman will never see shelf space. Look how Paula Deen was heading for best seller success. And, Balentine, her book publisher, just pulled the rug out.

Where can any positive book for Zimmerman be published? Maybe, a Canadian publishing house will come through? (They sure did for ARGO to happen.)

But, you bet, I’ve developed a strong stomach. I can take obummer’s nonsense in stride. And, I can see we’re not at a peace rally in the 1960’s, anymore. And, we’re certainly not at Woodstock!

Obama won because Mitt couldn’t sell himself to enough voters. Not surprised. Worried? Sure. The GOP could remain the stupid party. Rick Scott could get re-elected with no problem. And, Jeb Bush could be the 2016 nominee.

WE WILL SURVIVE. Just like the jury verdict just taught me. Women do make good jurors. WOW! We did just have a victory. And, nothing the prez sez can detract from that.

    So I know “planes came in without leaving any radar marks.” How’d dey do dat?

    Pretty simple. They were cruise missiles fired from a submarine. How do I know? I read it in the J Post.

That story at Atlas Shrugs, please make it viral. I’m going to ask Drudge, Breitbart and maybe WND to put it up. It’s very serious and is called Trayvonned.

Here it is, but it links to another place to finish the rest of the story:

Meet Joshua Heath Chellow, 36. Like many others, he assumed the early hours of July 1st were going to be another regular day filled with the normal day-to-day activities of life in middle class America – a day that included stopping for gas at a Marbleton, GA gas station in the suburbs of Atlanta.

Unfortunately for Joshua, filling up his tank meant he had to exit his vehicle. Joshua had the misfortune of the same condition that afflicted George Zimmerman that fateful and now infamous night of Feb 26th, 2012 – REWW. (*) Apparently that was sufficient enough for him to be “Trayvonned”.

The media is silent on what compelled the attackers, but what is known is that Joshua was set upon and mercilessly beaten in a life-threatening attack by a group of four “unarmed” black males. In a desperate attempt at self-preservation, Joshua began backing away from his attackers – stumbling onto the parkway in front of the gas station where he was run over by a passing car. The driver of the vehicle stopped, rendered aid and called 9-11 but Joshua died of his injuries.

Did any of you know about this attack? No. Because the media reported it as a “hit and run fatality” while deliberately refusing to discuss the events the preceded the fatal “hit and run”.

This is where you need to sit up and pay attention. In addition to deliberately suppressing the full, true story of what happened to Joshua, the corporate media made a deliberate and coordinated editorial effort to spin the story:

A walking talking blond joke

You expect intelligence from a journalist? Why? Have you ever seen any before?

Remember, these are people who couldn’t hack an education degree.

You know what’s REALLY SCARY, Kirsten?

A white 36 yr old getting randomly beaten to death by 4 black teens while he was filling his car at a gas station.

So how did we get gangsta culture? All we need to do is to look at another era. The 1920s. How did we get the gangster culture then? Prohibition funded it. Alcohol Prohibition.

So what funds gangsta culture? Drug Prohibition.

When we got rid of alcohol prohibition did it solve our alcohol problem? Of course not. Will ending drug prohibition solve our drug problem? Of course not.

So what will it do? The same thing it did in 1933. Cut way back on our organized criminal problem.

I am pretty disappointed. In Kristen Powers here. She’s one of the few liberal media personalities I can stomach, but these comments on TM are just plain ignorant. Anyone that bothered to actually follow the case wouldn’t post a tweet like that, because it is a patently untrue statement crafted to fit a narrative. My biggest complaint is that most of the people that pretend to ‘care’ about Trayvon and the ‘unjustice’ that was done to him, certainly didn’t care enough to follow the case. And no listening to MSNBC rave about the ‘amazing job’ BLDR was doing, does not count as following the case.

Watching the trial and seeing how the MSM twisted things has been a real eye opener for me. I knew there was a bias, but the lies they tell goes way past bias.

It’s because even O’Mara wouldn’t come out and tell the truth, even in victory: Trayvon Martin was a violent street-fighting thug or thug wannabe who chose the wrong pudgy little white guy to beat up and got exactly what he deserved for it.

We can only hope the hidden and deleted texts and photos and videos from Martin’s phone come out in due time. Zimmerman’s split-second reaction prevented a lot of future crimes, and may have saved lives.

Because Martin was black and the case falsely turned into a racially charged fiasco of a show trial, political correctness prevents most people from just saying the truth – out of fear of reprisal, social or physical. And that’s too bad.

    I think that if O’Mara had come out and described Treyvon the way you describe him, there would have been hell to pay! The violent riots and murders that everyone was so worried about would likely have come to fruition, IMO.

    George is free and not spending the next 25 years to life in a Florida penitentiary, that is what really matters. Treyvon is dead, O’Mara does not need to badmouth a dead teenager; it just would not be the right thing to do because many people do not know this case as well as you and they would (appropriately) take extreme offense.

    I do believe some Federal charge will come though, fruitless as it may be, because Obama and Holder want it and they can do it so it will come, unfortunately. Just my opinion.

Come on Fox, is this really the bubble headed, race baiting bimbo you want to pay?

Federal civil rights case does scare me, however. That mountain of testimony about GZ’s long, sordid, racist past will finally go on the record, and it’snot like there’s a countercase that could blow up in the prosecutor’s face.

I still don’t understand why BDLR didn’t bring in all this actual evidence of hate, spite, malice, ill will. Sure, Crump’s unsupported, illiterate accusations should have been enough to convict, but a year of collecting all this actual evidence shouldn’t have gone to waste.

As a racist, I’m really terrified that the Feds might try this. http://www.flickr.com/photos/mountain_ear/58683008/
