Here is something interesting that was discussed on CNN’s Headline News the night of Saturday, July 13, 2013 (Still trying to locate video scrubbed by Google and CNN):

There really WAS a guilty verdict… Trayvon Martin is GUILTY of Aggravated Assault… As self-defense IS justifiable homicide.  I wonder IF Trayvon Martin would have been brought to JUSTICE for his actions that night.

So, let’s break this down: 

There were actually two verdicts in the courtroom – 1 direct, and 1 implicitly implied.

#1 – George Zimmerman not guilty.#2 – Trayvon Martin guilty of aggravated assault & battery with intent to kill or maim.

When the jury found George Zimmerman not guilty of second degree murder and manslaughter, they simultaneously found Trayvon Martin guilty of aggravated assault. CNN’s Headline News stated that not only was the not guilty verdict read, but Trayvon was also convicted of aggravated assault due to Zimmerman proving his “self defense” case. 

Zimmerman’s acquittal indicates that he was justified in fearing for his life and using deadly force, and the obvious implication is that Trayvon Martin gave George Zimmerman reason to fear for his life.

The lawyer on the Legal Panel said Trayvon was convicted of aggravated assault and if he had survived he would have been sentenced for that. She added that that was going to help Zimmerman in his immunity options should there be a civil suit

Black Panthers Offer $10,000 Bounty For George Zimmerman

Comments Off on Black Panthers Offer $10,000 Bounty For George Zimmerman

BREAKING: The New Black Panthers are offering a $10,000 reward for killing George Zimmerman, even though he was acquitted of all charges after shooting black teen Trayvon Martin. (I wonder if the FBI is talking to these people ?)

Yes, you read that correctly.

On camera, a New Black Panthers spokesperson said they are going to give $10,000 “for the capture of George Zimmerman. We’re going to force our government to do their job properly, and if they don’t we will.”

“We’re saying to President Obama, you gotta do your job on this one buddy… So white America, we have given you 400 years to get it right and you still have failed black people. We’re not even citizens in this country. We’re still third class citizens. Today as black men, we must stand up. We must say to white America, ‘Your time is up.’”

Offering a $10,000 reward for a law-abiding, free citizen is not only wrong, it is a felony in most states. It is also a disgusting hate crime with ethnic motivation. With so much evidence, here on video, this should be a slam dunk for any prosecutor.

But where are the protestors now, demanding “justice?” Where are the Sanford politicians and prosecutors who were demanding George Zimmerman’s arrest and prosecution? Where is Eric Holder? Where is Obama.

Nowhere to be found.

Jesse Jackson Calls for United Nations Investigation of Trayvon Martin Shooting

Comments Off on Jesse Jackson Calls for United Nations Investigation of Trayvon Martin Shooting

Why don’t these people just let this go….a jury has decided on the Zimmerman case, get over it guys!

Jesse Jackson, the founder of Rainbow/PUSH, has called for the United Nations to investigate the death of Trayvon Martin.

According to Jackson, the acquittal of George Zimmerman contradicts international human rights laws and treaties.

Jackson’s call follows demands that the Obama Justice Department prosecute Zimmerman for allegedly violating Martin’s civil rights.

In addition, Representative Luis Gutierrez, an Illinois Democrat, has called for the House Judiciary Committee to hold hearings on the Martin-Zimmerman case.

We need a national investigation of the racial context that led to Trayvon Martin’s slaying,” Jackson wrote in an article published by the Chicago Sun-Times and posted on the Rainbow/PUSH website. “Congress must act. And it’s time to call on the United Nations Human Rights Commission for an in-depth investigation of whether the U.S. is upholding its obligations under international human rights laws and treaties. Trayvon Martin’s death demands much more than a jury’s verdict on George Zimmerman. It calls for us to hear the evidence and render a verdict on the racial reality that never had its day in court at the trial.”

Sebelius: Opposing ObamaCare is like opposing civil rights in 1964, or something

Comments Off on Sebelius: Opposing ObamaCare is like opposing civil rights in 1964, or something

HHS Secretary Kathleen Sebelius spoke at the NAACP convention yesterday in Orlando to congratulate them on their support for ObamaCare.  Why, the same kind of people who oppose ObamaCare now are like those who opposed the Civil Rights Acts in the early 1960s, she told the audience.

Did she mean … Democrats?

“The Affordable Care Act is the most powerful law for reducing health disparities since Medicare and Medicaid were created in 1965, the same year the Voting Rights Act was also enacted,” Sebelius said. “That significance hits especially close to home. My father was a congressman from Cincinnati who voted for each of those critical civil rights laws, and who represented a district near where the late Reverend Fred Shuttlesworth lived and preached.

“The same arguments against change, the same fear and misinformation that opponents used then are the same ones opponents are spreading now. ‘This won’t work,’ ‘Slow down,’ ‘Let’s wait,’ they say.

“But history shows that upholding our founding principles demands continuous work toward a more perfect union…And it requires the kind of work that the NAACP has done for more than a century to move us forward.

“You showed it in the fight against lynching and the fight for desegregation. You showed it by ensuring inalienable rights are secured in the courtroom and at the ballot box. And you showed it by supporting a health law 100 years in the making.

“With each step forward, you said to forces of the status quo, ‘This will work,’ ‘We can’t slow down’ ‘We can’t wait,’ ‘We won’t turn back.’

Er, yeah. Because opposing a law-enforcement effort to stop lynchings is so totally like opposing another big, costly, and destructive government intervention in the health-insurance industry.

It’s just another case of demagoguery from an administration forced to admit that they can’t administer their own law after a three-year head start.  In a blatant attempt to avoid the political consequences of the bill’s destructive failure, the White House wants to ignore the law they created and which Democrats shoved down the throats of Americans to buy off employers for a year or so.  This argument tosses even more demagoguery into the mix by bizarrely implying that opposition to ObamaCare is somehow racist — which gets Sebelius off the hook from explaining why HHS has utterly failed to meet the requirements of the mandates this administration demanded and got from Congress.

House Republicans want both mandates delayed an equal amount of time, and propose to do it correctly — via statute. However, Obama issued a veto threat in the rare chance that the Senate passes the extension, too:

Obama will veto measures set for House votes Wednesday to delay key parts of the new healthcare law if they reach his desk, the White House said.

The administration “strongly opposes” a pair of Republican-led bills to delay the Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act’s employer mandate and individual mandate, a White House statement said.

The employer mandate requires businesses with 50 or more full-time employees to purchase health insurance or face penalties. The individual mandate requires the same thing for most Americans.

The scheduled House votes follow an administration announcement July 2 to delay for a year, until 2015, the employer mandate, saying business owners expressed concerns about the law’s complex reporting requirements.

The back-to-back votes will seek to codify the White House’s delay and match it with a one-year delay of the individual provision, saying it’s only fair.

Yes, I’d like Obama to explain why employers got a waiver while individuals still have to deal with IRS enforcement in 2014, and why he’s suddenly a lot less interested in “fairness” for the people rather than the fat cats that employ them.  Or is that like opposing the Smoot-Hawley Act?

America’s Next Possible Ambassador: Wants Israel Destroyed

Comments Off on America’s Next Possible Ambassador: Wants Israel Destroyed

Barack Obama and his merry band of extremists are some of the most out-of-the-mainstream operatives in American politics today and the woman who is likely our next US Ambassador to the UN has a long history of essentially calling for the destruction of Israel, our only true ally in the Middle East.

This week Obama’s ambassadorial nominee, Samantha Power, will likely come up for approval by the Senate. So, it is instructive to look at some of Powers’ past actions and positions to remind us of why this extremist should not be confirmed.

For one thing, Power has long been a supporter of the terror group Hamas as a balance to the only mid eastern democracy that is Israel.

Power has, for instance, long been an advocate of funding the Palestinian Authority and Hamas and giving them military assets so that they can oppose Israel quite despite that Hamas and the PA have never reversed their stated goal of bringing genocide to Jews.

Haslam Administration Denies Wrongdoing On Contracts

Comments Off on Haslam Administration Denies Wrongdoing On Contracts

“We are 100 percent confident that this was a fair process, and we are 100 percent confident in the end that this is the right thing to do for our state.”

That was the message delivered Tuesday to state lawmakers by the governor’s chief of staff.

Mark Cate defended the Haslam administration’s decision to outsource the management of all state buildings to a private company.

He showed the legislature’s Fiscal Review Committee examples of how state workers had failed to properly maintain those buildings.

And he insisted the contract with Jones Lang Lasalle will save taxpayers tens of millions of dollars every year, although he said the savings may not show up immediately.

Inside the hearing room, state lawmakers had few tough questions.

Outside, Haslam’s General Services Commissioner faced questions for the first time.

After months of refusing to personally answer questions, Commissioner Steve Cates insisted he had no regrets about his department’s handling of state contracts.

It outsourced the state’s motor pool to Enterprise Rent A Car — without inviting other companies to bid — even though NewsChannel 5 Investigates was able to find cheaper rates online.

“I can go to a website on a Saturday and click on a car rate, and I might get a better rate because cars aren’t being used on a weekend than you can on an annual contract, but also you’ve go to manage that internally,” Cates said.

There was also the outsourcing of the maintenance of other state vehicles to Bridgestone, which ended up being the only bidder.

Emails show that a key bidders conference was rescheduled at the last minute at the company’s request.

“Why not tell Bridgestone, this is the date that has been set — if you want the contract, you need to be there,” NewsChannel 5 Investigates asked Cates.

“Well, then you would have got no bidders — so what do you do then?” Cates answered.

“You really think they would not have bid?” we asked.

“I have no idea,” he admitted.

Then, there was a million-dollar consulting contract that went to Jones Lang Lasalle — a contract that the administration soon began expanding without taking any bids.

The administration claims after JLL won that first contract, it was always presumed that they would get extra work.

But, at the time, members of the State Building Commission, who approved the amendment, made a point of saying that they not want to make a habit of doing such no-bid contracts.

“This approval of this first amendment of the JLL contract is an exception to the State Building Commission competitive procurement policies for this amendment only,” Treasurer David Lillard insisted.

Secretary of State Tre Hargett added, “If we approve today’s extraordinary item, that doesn’t construe that that’s a new policy on our part.”
