Is this what we’ve come to? A jury aquitted this man, get over it. When OJ Simpson was declared not guilty, you didn’t see the white community acting this way now did you?

…because apparently criminal charges are now determined by online popularity contests

Yesterday, NAACP President Ben Jealous announced that his organization had gathered petitions which boast 1.5 million signatures – all of them demanding that Eric Holder’s DOJ file civil rights charges against George Zimmerman. They were added to another list of signatures boasting 219,000 names and were delivered to the DOJ yesterday afternoon. According to Jealous (who has the perfect last name for a liberal) the signatures were collected mostly from young people and largely via cell phones.

As it says on the NAACP’s website:

“It is clear George Zimmerman’s bias played a major role in the events that led to the death of Trayvon Martin. A cousin called the police days after the murder and said, ‘I think he did this because of race.’ He had previously called the police dozens of times, disproportionately about young men of color who he thought were suspect. George Zimmerman himself stated on the night of the attack, ‘These punks always get away with this.’ The law says you must be able to show that race was a factor and that bodily harm was done. We believe there is enough evidence to satisfy this standard.”

Courtrooms and “self defense” are for suckers, so ignore that jury down in Florida.  That was just a show trial based on something they call “laws.”  This…this is the real deal.  The liberals-only club known as the NAACP has lined up almost two million uninformed people who are eager to ignore a “not guilty” verdict in favor of a modern-day digital lynching. They want to see Zimmerman swing and, by god, they won’t rest until they’ve filled out enough easily-faked online forms to make Eric Holder do what needs to be done.

So far, the Justice Department has issued no official response. This is probably because they’re busy with other, much more popular, petitions. After all, the Zimmerman petitions are absolutely dwarfed by the number of people who’ve signed on to demand Obama’s resignation, Eric Holder’s firing, the President’s impeachment, or the repeal of his signature healthcare law.

So, if we’re going down the mob rule rabbit hole, we’d need to take care of those things first.  Then, we’ll respond to petitions designed to make sure Ben Affleck doesn’t play Batman and we’ll bring back the TV show “Firefly.” After that, we can deal with Zimmerman.

If this petition succeeds – if we’ve really come to a place where criminal charges are subject to all the same rigors as a season of American Idol – we’ve arrived at a new low for the United States.

Obama Orders Legal Justification for Syria Strike

Comments Off on Obama Orders Legal Justification for Syria Strike

Well our dictator moves on toward war with Syria without Congressional authority…….as usual.

But let’s flashback to 2007 when our current leaders said this:

“The Founding Fathers were, as in most things, profoundly right. That’s why I want to be very clear: if the President takes us to [war] without Congressional approval, I will call for his impeachment….The Constitution is clear. And so am I.” — Joe Biden, in 2007.

“The President does not have power under the Constitution to unilaterally authorize a military attack in a situation that does not involve stopping an actual or imminent threat to the nation.” -Senator Barack Obama, 2007
US President Barack Obama

US President Barack Obama has ordered his legal advisers to draw up a document outlining the legal justifications for military intervention in Syria.

According to a CBS News report there is unanimous support for such military action within the Obama administration, following an apparent chemical weapons attack by the Assad regime on a suburb of Damascus which killed hundreds, mostly civilians.

There is also precedent for Obama to act militarily without US congressional backing, despite a law technically requiring it.

The US is not the only country reportedly considering unilateral action.
