With the announcement, by Attorney General Eric Holder, that the Department of Justice will “aggressively” investigate George Zimmerman, two things have died in this country. First is that portion of the Fifth Amendment which protects us from double jeopardy, i.e. being tried twice for essentially the same crime. The only motivation for the DOJ to investigate George Zimmerman would be preparatory to trying to charge him with a federal charge, for essentially the same crime, thereby, putting him in double jeopardy. Of course, they will call it something else, so the stupid of the country will not recognize it for what it is. They might even try to charge him with depriving Trayvon of his civil rights. They can hardly charge him with a hate crime since an investigation by the FBI and local authorities both concluded that race was not a motivating factor. Anything they call it will not change the fact that he is being tried for the same crime twice.
The second casualty of the DOJ investigation is the right to a speedy and public trial, as guaranteed by the Sixth Amendment.
No longer will we be tried by a jury of our peers in a legal courtroom. From this point forward, we will be tried and judged in the court of public opinion. And that public opinion will be shaped by a media that is, for all practical purposes under the direct control of the government.
The trial of George Zimmerman was the beginning of the new order. The mainstream media, from the outset, portrayed Trayvon Martin as an innocent child, tracked down and murdered by an evil racist George Zimmerman. It made good copy. The DOJ’s arm, the Community Relations Service, under the guise of being “peacemakers”, had people in Florida helping organize and finance protests against Zimmerman, almost from day one. So the media appeared justified in their unfair characterization.
Never once did the media attempt to determine the whole story. They practiced selective journalism, or confirmation bias, wherein the result is determined first and everything not supporting that result is discarded. For instance, they glossed over, or failed to mention, Trayvon Martin’s brushes with the legal authorities. They talked all around the fact that he was on a ten day suspension from school at the time of the shooting. They said it was for being caught in an unauthorized area. Excuse me, but what area in a public school is so scared as to warrant a 10 day suspension for trespassing? Such suspensions are not handed out, except for major problems, or repeated offenses.
Never once did they mention that George Zimmerman was a mentor and tutor to black and Hispanic children. You see that would have blown their “racially motivated crime” story right out the window. Even today, they still refer to it as a white-on-black crime, in spite of the fact that Zimmerman is Hispanic.
Nor did they mention the difference in the physical size and condition of Trayvon (high school football player, almost 6’ tall) and Zimmerman, 4” shorter and not in shape. Nor did they give but a modicum of ink to the police photos of Zimmerman bleeding at the nose and with multiple cuts and contusions on the back of his head. Of course, the fact that the prosecution withheld those pictures along with other evidence, until a whistleblower informed the press (which ignored it) and subsequently the defense attorney of their existence has, been mostly ignored by the media.
So it would seem that the Fifth and Sixth Amendments are about gone, and we will, forthwith, be tried and convicted by the mainstream media, without regard to truth. It is obvious that truth is a dirty word to them.
That’s two of the Bill of Rights gone. With the administration trying hard to negate the Second Amendment, it would appear that the Bill of rights may soon be a thing o the past.
The liberals have already started whining about the Supreme Court’s action in overturning part of the unconstitutional, Voting Rights Act. VRA came into existence on the false pretense of protecting a non-existent right. There is no guarantee of the right to vote on a federal level. Elections are the province of the states, or the counties, not the federal government. There is, at present, no such thing as a federal election. At any rate, the VRA was not nullified, only a portion, which was at the time it was enacted, and has remained discriminatory and judgmental in their truest sense, was nullified.Already the liberal talking heads are trying to say that it will cause large scale disenfranchisement of minority voters. How do they say this is going to happen? Well, according to their warped thinking, requiring a person to prove they are qualified to vote amounts to discrimination.
For the past five years, or more, the Associated Press, along with the majority of what is known as mainstream media, has seen fit to give President Barack Obama, and his administration, a free pass for whatever abuses of freedom they wished to perpetrate on the American people, including Fast and Furious, voter fraud, voter intimidation, Benghazi, etc. In fact, they would probably have provided him with a cover story and protection from the late breaking IRS scandal, except for one thing. His administration is directly responsible for government spying on the AP! Imagine that!!
What baffles me is how they pretend to be at all surprised by this revelation. The President has demonstrated time and gain that he has no loyalty to anyone or any entity, so why should the AP be exempt?
I am reminded of a legend concerning a young Indian who found a rattlesnake, almost frozen to death. The snake implored the youth, “Please take me to your tepee so that I can once again be warm and I will be your friend forever.” The Indian protested, “No you are a rattlesnake and you will surely bite me and I will die.” The snake renewed his pledge. “No, I promise not to bite you and I will be your friend for life.” So the young Indian picked up the rattler and took it to his tepee. Once the snake had warmed itself, the youth approached it whereupon the snake bit him several times in rapid succession. With his dying breath, the youth cried out. “You promised. Why did you bite me?” The snake responded “You knew what I was when you picked me up.”
So it would seem was the fate of the AP. They knew the character of the President and his administration. There should be no surprise that they have been bitten.
At this point, given the many faceted scandals breaking out, almost on a daily basis, in which the President and his administration appear to be complicit, it will probably tax even the best of the apologists to try to cover them with a straight face.
The investigation into the Benghazi sell out is far from over. In fact, it is just now getting started. The American people deserve true answers and we are going to get them. Everybody in the administration lied about this tragedy and four Americans died needlessly. We will not forget. We will not let it be swept under the rug.
Fast and Furious is very much on the minds of the American people as more and more is learned about this idiotic venture, which ultimately placed weapons in the hands of the criminal Mexican drug cartel, resulting in the death of at least one Border Patrol agent, and an untold number of Mexican nationals.
Piled on top of that is the news that the administration has been using the IRS to intimidate and persecute groups opposed to the views and actions of the administration, to the point of costing them countless thousands of dollars and denying them the tax exempt status to which they are entitled. There are charges, too, that the IRS has targeted Mormons, as well as Jewish groups sympathetic to Israel. This is one of the same tactics that President Richard Nixon employed against his enemies and would have been, had he not resigned, among the charges for which he would have been impeached.
Almost weekly we learn of more cases of voter fraud, some putting the legality of Obama’s re-election into serious question.
And yet, don’t be surprised to see most of the media rushing to “not cover” these issues, because they are afraid of making the President look bad.
To the AP, I say “When you lie down with the dogs, you’re gonna get fleas.” The question is, “Will you give him a pass on this one too, or will you finally wake up and smell what many of us have been smelling for a long time?”
It sure ain’t roses!
Of late, things have not been going well in the liberal camp. In fact, one might say, they are awash in their own stupid mistakes.
Their effort to push through an unconstitutional law requiring additional background checks for purchasing weapons fell through. It failed simply because it was propped up by a passel of lies.
Lie # 1, of course, was that it would keep weapons out of the hands of criminals and the mentally unstable. Of course no law affects criminals because they do not obey them. Mentally unstable people do what the Newtown shooter did. They kill somebody and take their legally purchased weapons.
Further they kept retelling the lie that the Newtown shooter used a semi-automatic rifle to “mow down” his victims. According to the police determination, the AR-15 never left the trunk of the car and the shooting was all done with handguns. So much for “mowing down!”
Another lie was that the background checks would never be used to create a federal gun registry. Based on the validity of this administration’s promises, nobody really believed that.
Further, the President claimed that 90% of the people in the country supported the background check, when, in fact, there is no empiric evidence to support such a statement.
The final lie was that the administration was not intending to disarm the American people, in spite of the fact that both Biden and Feinstein have made numerous statements alluding to that as their real goal.
Liberals must have hidden their heads under the pillow when the President lost his cool and had a temper tantrum, on TV, because he did not get his way. It reminded me of my 4 year old great grandson.
In the first days after the Boston Marathon bombing, many of the popular liberal talking heads on TV and in the press were expressing their belief and hope that the bombing was carried out by white right wing extremists.
Too bad, folks! As it turns out, it was carried out by two Islamic terrorists. The surviving member of the duo has admitted his part and indicated that his brother, who was killed by police, was the brains behind the plot. Did you hear that, Mr. President?
Further, they are now saying that the fact that they are Muslim is immaterial. When will the liberal camp quit trying to whitewash Islam? There are peaceful law-abiding Muslims, we all know. We also know that some kinds of snakes are harmless and actually perform a service for mankind, but the other ones are particularly dangerous and not to be trusted. For that reason, smart people distrust snakes until they find out what kind they are dealing with.
We are told that when Osama bin Laden was allegedly killed, that would be the undoing of al-Qaeda. Yet, just two days ago, the Canadian police arrested two people and uncovered an al-Qaeda plot to bomb trains going from Toronto to New York.
Our First Lady, Michelle Obama, was reported visiting one of the former Muslim suspects in the Boston bombing, in the hospital. Note that she did not bother to visit any of the victims. Pretty embarrassing, I would say.
Oh, and by the way, liberal doofus, British born Piers Morgan, who promised to self deport if the gun control bill did not pass, has NOT been seen boarding a plane back to jolly old England. In fact, at last check, he has not even bought a ticket. Could it be that Obama is planning to fly him back on Air Force One, at the expense of the American taxpayer? I doubt it. Most probably the real truth is that Morgan was lying through his teeth when he said it.
Hang in there liberals! Something may go your way yet. But, don’t; count on it. You pretty much cooked your goose when you re-elected an unqualified man to the Presidency.
"Liberals, in total, believe they own black America," said Reginald Webb of Project 21. This statement sums up why liberals go into a panic mode every time a successful black conservative speaks.
Liberals are afraid that if they do not destroy black conservatives, they will lose a part of the stranglehold they have on black America.
They feel there is something basically wrong, maybe even immoral, when a black man thinks for himself and thus embraces conservative views and thought processes. Their first instinct is to discredit or destroy him, before he gets the attention of other black people and they too become conservatives. You see, they know that black America, at its roots is better and smarter than the “plantation Negro” niche they try to keep them in with their “vote for us and we will give you free ice cream” tactics.
Black Americans are, by and large, becoming too intelligent to fall for this line, realizing that it is a form of “enslavement by consent.” More and more of them are jumping ship and joining the growing number of black conservatives.
We all watched, in utter disbelief, as the liberals trotted out a broken-down has-been publicity hound to charge Herman Cain with sexual misconduct. Unfortunately, such a charge carries with it a “guilty until proven innocent” stigma, much the same as a rape charge. As usual, in cases drawing a lot of publicity and in the manner of flies around a molasses barrel, a couple more women joined the group of accusers. Notice how quickly they all disappeared when Cain withdrew from the Presidential race. Most thinking people saw through the character assassination, and let it be known. The liberals then tried to shift the blame to Mitt Romney, or other Republican candidates. Few believed that lie either.
But, in the end, they shut down, at least temporarily, one of the dreaded monsters, a successful black conservative.
Now, the liberal hatchet men have turned their attention to Dr. Benjamin Carson. Dr, Carson spoke at the National Prayer Breakfast. During his speech, he was critical of programs for which the President is responsible or supports. Immediately, the liberal machine accused him of “insulting the President”. That charge is incredibly ludicrous, especially in light of the Bush era mantra of the liberals, “It is our patriotic duty to challenge the President.”
What Carson did was to lecture the President on the fallacies of some of the President’s programs. The President was sitting less than 10 feet away from him during his speech and one cannot detect from Obama’s expressions that he feels he is being insulted.
Nevertheless, the liberals have issued instructions to their “hit men”, to destroy Dr. Carson, so, through various media outlets and hack journalists, they are proceeding on their mission.
Dr. Carson made some incredibly narrow-minded and unkind remarks regarding the gay community. Thought he has apologized, several times, the liberals will not let it go. According to the liberal press and journalists, the apologies were not sincere. They feel they have the magical ability to look inside his heart and mind and determine what his true feelings are.
After protests by a gay student group, Dr. Carson has withdrawn from his engagement as the commencement speaker at the John Hopkins School of Medicine. He cited his belief that his presence would distract form the celebratory nature of the occasion. Tomorrow’s headlines and the liberal writers will charge that he did it to keep from being forcibly replaced. But then, they are not well known for accuracy.
They are digging frantically to find anything derogatory, or even slightly doubtful, in Carson’s history, which they can use to destroy him.
The reason they need to destroy a black conservative is that they cannot use the infamous race card, of which they are so doggedly fond, when he speaks out against the administration. They are also panicked at the thought of a black conservative candidate for the Presidency in 2016. Much of their campaign in 2008 and again in 2012 was based on the fact that Obama is black. They would have no strategy to use in trying to defeat a black opponent.
The funny thing is, Dr. Carson, has not indicated any interest in running for that office. Be that as it may, he must be destroyed. He has transgressed. He has dared to become something other than a shuffle butt slave to the liberal dogma.
In Kevin Foley’s column of last Friday, the 15th, entitled “Women second class citizens in GOP’s world”, he used scare tactics intended to frighten women. The crux of his rant was trying to prove that women’s health and their very lives are in danger from the GOP. That is a ludicrous and inane claim to begin with.
What is the premise for his charge? The GOP has not embraced the renewal of the “Violence Against Women Act.”
The 1994 version of the VAWA did very little to address the problem, which is a real threat to women. However, the act was designed as a means to, and most of the funds are allocated for, prosecution of the perpetrators, AFTER they have killed or injured a woman or women. Little is devoted to stopping the crime BEFORE it happens.
Of course, what Mr. Foley fails to mention is that the program is still in effect, so nobody is in danger yet. He also conveniently glossed over the reason for the stalemate. The liberals want to extend the coverage of the act to gay men, and lesbians, which is totally unnecessary, as men are covered by the provision of the original act. The act makes no distinction about the sexual preference of the victim or the perpetrator. Therefore gay men and lesbians are already covered.
They also want to extend it to Native Americans living on reservations, which is a violation of the treaties with the Indian tribes. Those treaties give the tribal leaders full authority over the tribal lands, and, in fact, enjoin the Federal government from interfering in tribal business.
But the final straw is that they tried to extend it to cover illegal immigrants, and grant them automatic temporary visas when they are victims of domestic violence. This is a group which is already costing taxpayers hundreds of millions of dollars annually, and they are here illegally, in essence lawbreakers.
In short, had the liberals not tried to broaden the coverage of the act, it would already have been renewed.
What he also failed to mention is that the GOP controlled House passed its own bill eliminating the changes made by the Senate. The Senate has not approved that bill. Approval of that bill would effectively renew the VAWA. Obviously, they want it their way, or they will continue to blame the House and the GOP, while they share the blame equally.
When looking for someone to blame, looks like there is enough blame to go around to both parties and both chambers of Congress.
It will be interesting to see if Mr. Foley is willing to admit that. .
He belittles remarks made by GOP candidates, Michelle Bachmann, Herman Cain and eventual party nominee, Mitt Romney, calling them “rhetoric. The remarks he quoted were nothing more than insistence on enforcement of the laws already on the books. Note that he quotes Bachmann as saying, “I believe we should uphold the laws of the land, which does include deportation.” While she might be graded off for grammar, there is certainly nothing in that statement that qualifies as “rhetoric.” Only a “spin doctor” would try to turn it into such.
It is a sad day indeed when insistence upon upholding the law is termed as “inflammatory.” Instead of looking to the people who made the statements, we should be looking al the people who are offended by them. Only people who are intent upon breaking the law are afraid of, or get incensed, by talk of enforcement.
Certain liberal politicians are insisting that the American people want the illegal immigrants to be granted amnesty, yet they produce little or no proof of their words, other than questionable polls. Without information as to the validity of the polls, the people polled and their location, poll results mean little. If you polled people in Los Angeles County about illegal immigrants you would find a resounding majority in favor of them. Wow! Big surprise? Hardly, since you are, in many cases, asking them if they approve of themselves or their family or friends. Conversely, if the same poll were conducted among the working class in the Atlanta area, where jobs are lost daily to illegal immigrants, the results would be much different. So, please take your poll results with a shaker of salt, not just a grain.
In 1986, President Reagan granted amnesty to about three million illegal immigrants in this country. Along with that, we were assured of a closed border. Only lip service was ever paid to that provision. Now we have, depending upon whose estimate you use, between 11 and 15 million illegal aliens. Assuming that the 3 million constituted all the illegal aliens here at the time, the illegal alien population has continued to grow at the rate of over 407,000 per year.
No administration, since Reagan, has taken a pro-active stand against this illegal activity. Bush, Sr. ignored it, Clinton ignored it, Bush, Jr. encouraged it and welcomed it, and Obama’s idea of getting rid of illegals is to make them legal. That’s a brilliant plan! We can cut down our murder rate. All we have to do is legalize killing. Our armed robbery rate would disappear, if we made robbery legal. Heck, we could even unionize the robbers.
The current plan, as defined by the “Gang of Eight” (four liberal “weenies” and four RINOs) would secure the border, streamline the current immigration system and create a tough but fair legalization process. It would require personal action by those wishing to become legal, including registration, paying fines, demonstrating a productive work record, paying back taxes and learning English, in order to be granted a “green card” and amnesty. They would also go to the back of the line for citizenship.
However, President Obama only heard the part where they would be granted amnesty. He did not hear, nor does he care about the rest. He is insisting on amnesty first, then all the other things, including closing the border.
Does anyone really think that, once they get amnesty, they are going to comply with the rest of the provisions? They pay no attention to the law, or they would not be here. Their “desire” for citizenship is, in most cases, a myth. There may be a percentage which really wants to be citizens. The rest want all the benefits without the responsibilities.
The borders will not be secured and the illegals will continue to flock across it, to the land of “leche y miel.” And the liberals will have increased their voter base by eleven million, effectively ending the two-party system in the U. S. and creating a dictatorship for Obama.
Sorry, Kevin, but “party” is hardly the word for the nightmare of amnesty.
