Anyone who doesn't think sweet little Trayvon would talk like that read his tweets.

Because the groundwork has been laid for a presidential power grab under conditions of civil unrest.

You’re right Obama already has the wackos who are for Zimmerman being hanged without an investigation, including all the fat lazy welfare moms sitting on facebook all day playing games and signing petitions.

Why do this? who knows because it’s gonna lose A LOT of middle class white voters who can’t stand this race hustling nonsense.

The question I see here, if all what martins supporters are saying is true...then why didn't Martin call 911 at any time thru this happpening...? and further why didn't he just go home? He was not far from there... and why did his mother say Martin was just sitting on the porch when Zimmerman shot him.. in the initial investigation? And over and over again the family has changed their stories to the press about Martins suspensions etc. Let alone getting these trademarks etc. does not sound like a grieving family to me...so who is pushing them...or maybe they aren't pushing?

I am still in the court of self-defense and that Zimmerman did not provoke the situation in any way

The question is will anything society does to "accommodate" their requests ever be enough....I don't think so....no matter how much equality is given and or shared it's just never going to end this idea of being "victims"....

Well said. If I may add one observation - it seems some blacks and most extreme leftists believe whites are born with unfair, unseen privileges, and this is the source of some blacks' perceived inequality of outcome academically, socially and financially.

It is remarkably like a Cargo Cult except that instead of cargo it is the spoils of "white privilege" they seek, and the ritual is the feigned outrage, the looting and the indignation.

Contrast with blacks who don't buy into this garbage and become physicians, scientists and other successful, contributing members of society.

I know what they want....$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$.

Taxpayer money, there will be no violent race war, no way, they know we would kick their arses.

They want control, power, and the US Treasury.

And they will get it, they will continue to steal more and more, because Americans are good and want to help “victims” of all sorts.

Back in 2006 after the national elections in Kenya, Raila Odinga had lost his try for President of Kenya but rioting ensued by his followers. BHO2 encouraged Odinga to foment murderous rampages. Christian churches were burned down with parishioners inside.

Never, never, never forget that our President advised his relative to do that. It is what he intends for the U.S. - of that, I have no doubt.

I don’t think it could be. Uijonbu (outside of Camp Red Cloud) was quite a lot of fun in the 70’s, believe me. Partied in the town outside of Osan Air Force Base while on TDY. Different vibe than TDC. And the bars outside of Yongsan in Seoul were different, as well, as were the places in the more “Korean” parts of Seoul.

“further why didn’t he just go home? He was not far from there”

Exactly and when you listen to Zimmermans 911 call you hear just how long a period of time passes after Zimmerman says Martin “ran” and he had lost him, says he doesn’t want to say his home address out loud because “I don’t know where he’s at” and makes arrangements to meet the cops at the mailboxes.

Key word “legally”.

Do you not think that the recently enacted NDAA plus plenty of regs laid down in FEMA regulations provide for plenty of leeway in terms of what I’ll call “reactive” power in the event of widespread civil unrest?

“Legally” is great, but in most circumstances it is always very much in arrears. In an era of twitter and facebook a widespread breakout of civil unrest is going to outrun the pace of whatever legal forces can be brought to bear. “Legal “ may have little or nothing to do with it.

I believe with Trayvon Martin we are seeing a potential “dry run”.

Personally I think this administration is dedicated to to the downfall of the nation. Gettting re-elected is important because from that position, obviously much greater power can be exerted and much greater destruction can be inflicted. But the nation’s downfall is a higher priority. I sincerely believe that if the 0bama regime sees itself being booted out of office, there is nothing at all it will not pull. And a dozen cities worth of “urban renewal” and a few hundred dead are nothing to them. It would not surprise me to see numerous race riots break out this summer. I don’t say this to be alarming or doomsaying or anything else. I think it’s a perfectly forseeable possibility.

Your post reminded me of a black associate I worked with who had a dream of owning her own business...and she finally opened a small shop in the community. As it grew she had the idea of opening another one in a nearby community and sought individuals who might invest with her in doing just that.

Long story short, an interested Investor was meeting her at her home and I was there just prior. She shared her ‘very real fear’ that once this “White” investor saw she was “black” he wouldn't go any further. More talking until I finally realized she had lost sight of how far she had come, with very little help from others, and she had already proved her capabilities and success and THAT is what she must stand on....not some idea which had plagued her from attempting to do this in the first place. etc. etc. You get the picture.

Well she forged ahead and opened another business with this Investors assistance. He wanted to be a silent partner from the financial aspect only. All decisions he would trust her with and did. And that business too succeeded very well.

I tell this because I don't believe many in the black community get encouragement amongst each other...aside from those who have already broken out of this mindset. And she shared that with me explaining there is a very real jealousy when a black person breaks away from the crowd....that they try to pull you back. And I also heard this from Hispanics as well.....

So there are very real race issues within the races themselves which they have to overcome as well as the preconceived ideas they are up against surviving prejudices in the white community............and they “think” that this is a race issue when in fact this problem also occurs within the white race.....it's just life and there will always be people pulling you back regardless of race ...that's why it takes “courage” in the face of fear to break away and do what your hearts desire is to do.

Your comment about the looting, outrage etc. makes sense....I see that with the students who go into stores in these groups and steal.....I suspect they figure they are “owed” that or that “they'll get theirs one way or another”.

I have a few black friends....and just for clarity...also a “few” white friends....who I have oftentimes spoken with on how they broke away from this mindset. They shared they simply saw their dream and determined no matter what the obstacle or set backs they were going to get where they wanted to go.....perseverance... says that best which is never bound by race or color!

I’ve never been in the military and I have zero basis for making any kind of statement as to what the rank and file military man would do or not do. If you have military experience or exposure, I’m in no way trying to negate that experience.

That said, there are plenty of Nat’l Guard reserve units available, and maybe I am incorrectly assuming that. Maybe half of them would disobey orders to put down a civilian “diturbance” but far fewer would disobey orders to put down an out of control race riot in a Detroit or a Newark or a Camden or an Oakland. Sure, there are plenty of folks who are armed. I think the claims as to how many of them would fire upon a squad of Nat’l Guard soldiers are overestimated, as well.

I am not predicting how this would turn out. I am only saying that there is a period after early November and January 20, 2013 when a booted-out admin is very much in control of things. If it’s chaos they want, I believe they would unleash it if they felt it would serve their aims.

Where I live in the country, black and white and mexican people get along perfectly fine every single day. We hold doors open for each other, get cans off the top shelves for the shorties, say “please” and “thank you” and “have a great day” We even attend the same schools and churches.

I hate that evil self serving men like Al and Jesse and Spike are allowed sooooo much publicity to poison communities with their hate and racism.

“white privilege”

******

Second time I’ve read this phrase in the past few years...first time came after reading responses to “The Help”. Deserves a thread of its own, really. I am convinced that it’s “black privilege” that has created the racial divides but few blacks will ever admit that they are part of the problem, no matter their education, financial status nor societal standing.

Why? Do they not know there are other options or are they truly that hateful to continually use and abuse the black population, and the poor, in order to elevate themselves

I'd have to say that the "why" is explained in the Bible. From Genesis 3, to Romans 1, 3, 5, Psalm 14, and throughout. Man, by nature, is evil. We are a fallen race, whose first parents were deceived by Satan - the god of this world who has blinded those that believe not. So man, without Christ, is governed by his lusts, pride, and ego. The ends justify the means. I am sure these people can rationalize whipping up hatred with the end being that they gain more power to enable them to do "good stuff". We certainly should call them out on these points, and oppose them, but we need to remember our battle isn't with them.

Ephesians 6:12-13
For we wrestle not against flesh and blood, but against principalities, against powers, against the rulers of the darkness of this world, against spiritual wickedness in high places.

I served in Army intelligence from 1978 to 1983 and then as a civilian for about 10 years. Any president has great power, but it’s getting everybody to go along with your agenda in a martial law situation that’s tricky. I think FDR, Truman, Ike, JFK, Nixon and Reagan wouldn’t have had a big problem. Many of the others would’ve, to varying degrees. I don’t think Mr. Obama has a prayer of getting the majority of the military and law enforcement to do his will if it means attacking suburban or rural civilians.

You're right I had forgottene about that....there are so many things this administration is doing to hurt this country that it's sometimes difficult remaining on top of it all....and I think most of us want to... but there is the "Push" I think to overload the plate so you can't see it all as it's happening. It's almost like "push" all of it thru as fast as possible and some of it will stick...is the agenda.

When you mentioned in your post the Martin issue being a "dry run"...it sent a chill. I had considered that... for Obama could see what the "turnout" might be....and at least double it when push comes to shove. But I was thinking that only from the aspect of the election votes...not of civil unrest.

I agree about the re-election, there will be no constraints on what the administration will do then. And it's frightening to think about..... Actually until Obama's "mic" slip up I thought whatever might happen we as a nation could handle it....but now I'm very much begrudgingly considering I may just have to vote Romney if this primary doesn't go to convention....just to make certain Obama doesn't carry out his Russian plans and disarm our country. But I also heard that the Russian slip up is what the Democrates are hoping will get people to unite behind Romney.....so it just seems no matter which way we turn somebody is playing us all!

If I have to vote Romney I won't be holding my nose this time...I'll be bawling every step of the way....and with the heaviest heart on the face of this earth. Yet I still have hope God will enter into the affairs of men and maybe give this nation one more chance....at the convention.

Race riots over the summer?...it sure looks like it's heading that direction...Sharptons planning on going to Sanford over Easter with a mass of people to Quote 'Pray that Zimmerman will be arrested". ....He may be met with resistance and it might not be from the "white" population.

OWS is now Obamas "on call" lackeys as well. What a mess we're headed for....may God have mercy.

If a kid was rushing toward him, I do not believe he was reaching for a cell phone. Anyone would have reached for a gun.

Kid wasn't rushing at him, they were standing talking when TM hit Zimmerman in the face and then jumped on him. It has all been well documented.

Again, I can’t comment from any kind of military experience. I’m just...imagining.

We are in a different world than ~~1980. We have an all volunteer military now, and if the upper and middle levels of such a military were to impose a threat of having whatever the lower ranks are in the military for destroyed, revoked, with the threat of imprisonment or trial should they disobey orders, I believe good numbers of soldiers would comply with whatever was ordered. All of them? No. Half of them? Maybe. Very few of those who didn’t follow orders would not, I would posit, actively oppose an internal force ordered to “maintain civilian order” and they wouldn’t have their issued weapons to do so.

If the stage is set with massive tension built up with spontaneous and widespread urban unrest, I don’t think there’s a lot that we can predict about how such a situation might unfurl. I agree that compliance by the military for whatever this admin might come up with could be sketchy, but half the population thinks the country is set up against them and that the country owes them something. There could be a dramatic shift of mood where vast swaths of the population, under conditions of this admin getting booted, might well feel like their window of opportunity is suddenly slamming shut on them and that they might have much to lose.

“Race riots over the summer?...it sure looks like it’s heading that direction.”

The good news is that the human brain always looks at a trend while it is in progress and thinks it will go on “forever”. You know, stocks go up forever, house prices rise forever. So if you and I think this trend festers and ultimately erupts into widespread urban unrest over the summer....we’re probably wrong.

The bad news is that is many ways I think this admin likes what it sees and isn’t especially interested in stopping it nor working to alleviate it.

Thank you for reminding me of that verse......it's just very difficult to grasp the level these people will go and that without an ounce of shame or who gets hurt as they go about their agenda for power and control.

They are willfully blind IMO...and yes man's nature is bent on evil without Christ....but I have not seen it so paraded before us and that with pride and arrogance so blatantly. But then they "Do strut their evil before you" as is written. Which then makes me think..."when the wicked come to power men go into hiding".....I read a commentary on that...basically saying they cease activities of commerce, of works etc. and prosperity comes slowly to a hault.

Thank you for your post....And even if they do think the end justifies the means and excuses their actions in their own minds....I find it much hard to hope ...for them. And not sure I can anymore....not sure I want to.....

Just what was reported - he call the police first - moments before and told them about some guy he was concerned about. Police wanted to know the address he was in front of then, he didn’t know. But for them to call him when they get there and gave them directions to and into this community.

Zimmerman was going to his car and the kid attacked him from behind, is what I read. The kid said something to him - like ‘do you have a problem?’, he answered ‘no’, and the kid responded with something like ‘you do now’.

Oh I can’t see this adminsitration doing aything but encouraging it.....even if behind closed doors. They did the same thing with the OWS crowd....anything to keep the people of that nature “occupied”. Give them a cause to take their minds off their problems with this admnistration...and all will go much smoother as Obama makes his plays.

What I don’t understand is why Trayvon didn’t just run away? If I’m walking with my skittles and ice tea and some guy in a truck is watching me, I’d either call the cops myself or high tail it out of there if I were an innocent kid. Or even myself, a woman.

Thanks for posting that. I had not read it as I’ve been busy listening to SCOTUS audio and reading the transcripts.

IDK if he was the same way in real life or not, but on Twitter - Trayvon Martin was a despicable human being.

(Note to libtards who will twist my words: No that doesn’t mean he should’ve died simply for being despicable.)

Your statement got me thinking. Some few blacks seem to have been shaking off the brainwashing of Hope & Change and some who are just losing interest. The Dems saw this opportunity to politicize the killing of yet another black youth, never mind they die by the dozens every day from efforts of their own race, to get those blacks back on the plantation. The Dems are greedily slavering over the fact that the accused is part white, forget his Mestizo part, which is making this all the more attractive to the black base.

He may have 95% of that voting block nailed down - no matter what - but the trick is to get them motivated to show up to the polls in November. If the Dems can motivate 70+% of this voting block to show up to the polls by waving a bloody shirt, as opposed to the normal 20% - expect them to wave the bloody shirt.

Exactamundo bump.

In 1998, Bill Clinton nearly got out of impeachment by doing a below-the-radar campaign to spike up the black vote. It worked -- the black turnout was up 60% over 1996 (well, at least the votes cast went up, how's that?) -- but not quite well enough.

As it was, the Republicans who had actually been expecting an increase in House seats (this was a by-election in Clinton's second term, and he was in impeachment proceedings) ended up losing about 8 seats, which was a total surprise to all of them. It cost Newt Gingrich his job as Speaker (along with the book thing, but this was the last straw), and he resigned his Speakership and his House seat shortly thereafter.

Had Clinton succeeded, impeachment would have been quashed on election night, and he would now be celebrated on the Left as the Great Extricator who slimed, then beat, then humiliated the Republicans despite their historic 1994 victory on the merits of the issues.

Ineresting and challenging era for the European tribe, that’s for sure. In the past, when pushed to the wall, they have rallied and come through.

There are some that either:

- cannot evolve

or

- choose not to evolve

either way some remain subhuman savages

- not smart when outnumbered 9 to 1 as others still arrive and adapt and prosper and are thankful for America

they often choose to abort their unborn babies in growing numbers

- hardly a sign of biped primates of advanced intelligence

Very interesting Fred...good work getting these police reports.

Echo bump. I read them all, and they pretty well establish that G.Z. was bleeding when the police first arrived, and that the Sanford FD EMS technicians attended to his bleeding. You would think that ABC would review these reports before going wide with the "revelation" that SPD station video shows G.Z. *NOT* bleeding (stop presses!) when he arrived there -- and therefore his story about being attacked is bullshine!

Good one, ABC News! (They were touting those videotapes overnight on their "news" program [nonstop feminine-products ads, etc. etc.].)

Never, never, never forget that our President advised his relative to do that.

I have never seen this charge before. Could you give a source link or something? If true, it's utterly, utterly damning. It makes Obama, if true, the kind of bloodthirsty "postcolonial" kleptocrat that East African critics have said he is, and a "typical" Stalinist -- like Pol Pot, Kheiu Samphan, and the rest of the Cambodge butchers.

They want unrest that they can somehow blame on Conservatives.

The all-volunteer military began in 1973. No one in the military by 1980 was there without having re-enlisted (voluntarily, of course), even the conscripts.

Interesting that the interviewer was D. Singleton, not Chris Serino.

The one who interviewed Zimm did NOT call for an arrest but some other guy, who was NOT the interviewer, did.

We’ll see riots this summer. It will all start in Florida-Trayvon Martin.

Never have we had a purely evil man in our White House. Now we do.
