Star Zimmerman witness implodes (Jack Cashill)
WND ^ | 6/28/2013 | Jack Cashill

Posted on 06/28/2013 5:41:48 AM PDT by RoosterRedux

Defense attorney Don West quickly established that Jeantel was 18 at the time of the shooting not 16, that she had not been hospitalized, and that she was not Martin’s girlfriend. He also confirmed that she lied about the hospitalization under oath,

West walked Jeantel through the various stories she had been telling since first going public, emphasizing their discrepancies.

The most significant of those discrepancies was her claim in later interviews of having heard Martin yelling “get off, get off” once he dropped the phone after a physical exchange with Zimmerman.

West made a strong case that these later additions, like much of her story, was manufactured. Jeantel’s inability to keep her story straight reinforced that suggestion.

The fact that state prosecutors first interviewed Jeantel under oath at the home of Trayvon Martin’s mother, Sybrina Fulton, with Fulton sitting next to her on the couch did not reassure anyone that her testimony was freely given.

In a spectacularly un-coached moment, Jeantel explained that when Martin first saw Zimmerman eying him, he called Zimmerman a “creepy a– cracker.”

It may have been Martin who was doing the racial profiling. When asked, Jeantel denied that the word “cracker” had a racist implication.

On day two West bored into Jeantel’s many inconsistencies in time, space and motive. Although West did not emphasize the state’s future problem at this stage, Jeantel confirmed that Martin had several minutes to return to the house where he was staying – roughly 100 yards from the point where he started running – but never went there.

“Implodes” from the viewpoint of normal, mainstream culture.

But, people from her culture probably see her testimony as “compelling”, or some concept that means compelling without actually knowing what the word means.

If that thing had imploded, it would have sucked half the state down with it.

This woman will obviously be a US Senator (D) someday.

She cannot read and is PERFECT for passing DNC
bills (usually composed by prisoners who are ROTLFLOL).

Dana Perino said West is just a bully and the six women on the jury will resent the way he harangued her.

Listening, I don’t think he harangued her at all,

just tried to get the actual sounds coming out of her mouth to be intelligible and understood by the court and the jury.

While I largerly agree with you, I have a bone to pick with Rush over his promulgation of the “low information voter” concept.

He attributes this group to not being informed about the truth. This implies, he thinks, that if they had the needed information they’d react rightly. I whole heartedly disagree.

While they aren’t being informed of the truth, they could give a rat’s patootie about it as long as they get their iPhones, WICs, TANF, SNAP, Section 8 and EITC. They would fight to the death on the devil’s side if these entitlements were removed - they just don’t care about morals, right, ethics and hard work - they haven’t since LBJ I’d say.

And if you need more evidence about low-information ‘citizens’ reacting rightly if only they were told the truth, I respectfully submit to you the criminal case against OJ Simpson.

The legal analyst working for Orlando's Channel 9 (whose feed I've been watching) said that the defense had Miss Slim Jeans on the ropes for a while but the state's “re-cross” (I think that's what he called it) rehabilitated her and that when she left the stand she was a net plus for the state.He also said that the defense later made a huge mistake that could allow the state to introduce GZ’s “violent” past to the jury.I don't know who this analyst is...if he's like most criminal lawyers he's probably a loyal Obamabot,as is Miss Slim Jeans.

They gotta come up with something to support their sense of superiority.

And their first resort, often, is to denigrate those pointing out the deficiencies of their beliefs as inferior or benighted.

Has she been given the ASBO civil order for sure? I’d have thought this would have been a topic of discussion in her cross-examination.

I wonder if they got to read her tweets before the trial started,

But, but, but......

She said under oath that she can't read, so how does she text or 'Tweet'?

Perhaps the defense attorney missed a possible opportunity to open the door on her tweets with that conflicting testimony.

Dana Perino is an airhead. The more she expounds on a subject, the more I wonder how she got so far. Probably because of her looks—she is very cute.

The women jurors are there to discern the truth.That is what they are sworn to do. I expect they take their role as seriously as any man would.

If “sisterhood” is going to rule the day,and send an innocent man to prison, then they are airheads also.

The most significant of those discrepancies was her claim in later interviews of having heard Martin yelling “get off, get off” once he dropped the phone after a physical exchange with Zimmerman.

Based on this one sentence, I would acquire the phone records of both numbers just to see if they were in fact talking at the time of the attack. The phone company has the record of the date, time and number called and whether it was out going or in coming. It is also painfully obvious that her responses were written for her and she can only repeat what they read. She can't expand on what they mean, in her own words.

Women will never be considered equal in professional environments if they are continually treated differently. The fact that the left (and I include Perino due to her beltway pedigree) constantly pulls the bullying card, the race card, etc, they are the ones perpetuating the gender and race issues. West would have treated a man, woman, white, black, Hispanic, Asian, homosexual or Indian the exact same way. It is the left that keeps dividing and differentiating.

Some of the supposedly most “educated” Americans, those who hold post graduate degrees, helped to elect the band of demons who now run this country. “Low information” is not the real problem, refusal to recognize reality is the problem. We have a strange phenomenon of people who have triple digit IQ numbers, some of them in the actual genius range, who steadfastly refuse to recognize what is going on in front of their faces. The way I express it now is that people must make a choice, you cannot praise the founders, praise all the great men and women of the nineteenth and early twentieth century and at the same time praise the demons who have taken over this country. If you believe what is going on now makes sense you are saying that your grandparents and all who preceded them were mentally deranged. It is one way or the other. I personally think my parents, grandparents and others before them were humans who made mistakes but I don’t think they were all nutcases.

One way or the other folks, one way or the other, it cannot be both ways. If you say we have a good president now you are saying George Washington, Thomas Jefferson, and most of the others were all terrible presidents and you are calling Benjamin Franklin, a man who has often been listed as one of the greatest thinkers in history a fool. One way or the other. As for myself I am more amazed at the brilliance of the founders everyday. I will stop now before I really begin to rant.

http://www.urbandictionary.com/define.php?term=cracker-ass

From the above link:

Cracker ass cracker (also Cracka ass cracka)

A white person, usually ignorant and/or racist, for whom the racial slur cracker - while capturing the essence of the individual’s personality - does not quite seem to fully capture the extent of the individual’s ignorant and/or racist behavior without being used twice. The word “ass” is therefore used to break up the dual usage of the term cracker - not only to emphasize the insult by adding an expletive (for example the way “punk bitch” is enhanced: “punk ass bitch”), but also because using the same word twice in a row doesn’t sound right.

Often used somewhat under one’s breath in disgust after having just made a point about an individual who is indeed a cracker, or the aforementioned cracker ass cracker.
white guy with a stupid grin on his face trying to sound cool: “for shizzle, my nizzle”

I agree with you that there are those triple digit IQ idiots out there that vote for Obama. But, they have BEEN out there forever!

They are the intellectually dishonest that choose the liberal side because they are congregated together, graduated together, work, socialize and scheme together to get the largess the government liberal politicians reserve for large cash contributions and for creation of issues that foment societal disease. Informing them won’t change a damned thing.

Why do you think Obama and his ilk are so vehement in their plans for illegal immigrants, voter ID, citizenship requirements removal? To increase his voter base....all he needs to do for the triple IQs is to pander to their pet foibles and give them government cash in the form of education/research grants, pork money for their businesses, etc.
