Is there an alternative to Whorealdo and Judge Janine?
Vanity | 7/13/2013 | Vendome

Posted on 07/13/2013 9:09:46 PM PDT by Vendome

I'm just trying to get good info on TV and know already what I'd be treated to on the other channels but, I turn on Fox and there's Whorealdo, couching his language that implies Zimm was wrong.

Further, he invites Judge Janine Piero and they both go on and on about Stand your Ground and the law needs to be changed because it leads to far too many vagaries and can only result in further unnecessary deaths.


TOPICS: Constitution/Conservatism; Crime/Corruption; Culture/Society; News/Current Events
KEYWORDS: blackkk; florida; georgezimmerman; geraldo; janinepiero; pendantic; self; serving; standyourground; travesty; trayvonmartin; vanity; whorealdo
I call BS!!!!

On both of them. Stand your Ground had nothing to do with this and wasn't even argued. Yet, Whorealdo and Janine are discussing it, couched and cloaked in this travesty but, giving weight of the argument to Trayvon and others.

It's just plain sickening that they are conflating an issue not brought up during the trial and arguing it has to end.

I argue that Stand your Ground informs the original victim as to when they should act from the question of "When, should I act in defense of my life", which causes hesitation for fear of being in error to narrow law that doesn't give the original victim the freedom to defend themselves in a timely manner.

The question that the original victim should be asking is "Should I act now to save my life?"

In that, there is no ambiguity as the evidence has already been built forcing the question.

So where else can I go to watch this without those two acting self righteous?

Wow!!!!!! The defendant is Hispanic, and suddenly Whorealdo sounds like Rush Limbaugh, only more conservative.

My alternative would be just turn off the TV. I don’t think you are going to get anything worthwhile there.

Looking like it.

Best to just get some things done around here.

Just gross, high browed and self righteous.

I don’t like watching either one.

Geraldo is in it for Geraldo. He is always going which ever way the wind blows to stay relevant and make money.

As for Janine, she is in show business too as much as Jerry Rivers.

Some like to look at her because she’s a female, but I’m not here to be seduced into watching the RINO news channel.

I actually like to watch news, not sensationalism to draw me in as presented by seductresses.

The BBC World News channel may be more Marxist Leninist than any other channel but they are a lot less sleazy and I prefer to watch it.

Janine just clearly (and correctly) stated that this was a self defense case, not a Stand Your Ground case.

I can’t stand them either

But the other channels are so much worse, they all basically say Zimmermann is really guilty and got away with it and all America is just so devastated about this travesty of justice.

They all also seem disappointed that so far there are no riots.

When I tuned in I thought I was listening to a different gal than I had come to adore.

She started talking about Stand your Ground, which doesn’t apply in the case but, by inference, tied it in and suggested it needed to be changed to cut down on the number of deaths.

That’s what set me off and I was like WTF? Is you KuhRayZee?

Get in line, pal ;-) I can’t believe it takes 18 replies before someone defends Jeanine, who is one of the strongest, no BS Conservatives on the air anywhere. If she happens to have an different opinion on an issue or two, big deal. It IS (barely) a free country, and a a laywer and judge, she has a different perspective than you or I.

Feel free to hammer away at Whorealdo, though.

“Is there an alternative to Whorealdo and Judge Janine?”

Yes!

Kill your television.

Develop alternate sources of information.
(The internet, maybe?)

Without TV, movies, and other mass media, there is a potential alternative reality...
real reality - the old fashioned kind.

I gave up TV a decade ago and never regretted it, since I have the internet. I have access to all the greatest thinkers in politics today and tons of Classical books and I know who to trust-—just go to their threads (like Thomas Sowell)-—and, of course, FR and read the comments.

The news shows pick up people who have a bias and most will only stick to the talking points that the network allows. They have an agenda-—and strict rules—even Fox News with their “French Youths”-—that is when I dumped Fox, years ago—when the Saudis bought into their network.

I don’t bother with any of them unless there is a featured outstanding speech-—such as by Ted Cruz or his father that is featured on a conservative site-—other “ideas” aren’t worth the time and they are just meant to make you angry anyhow or twist perceptions. Go to original sources.....don’t get second hand commentary unless by a very trusted person.

Not many out there to “trust” IMHO. If they are famous for a long time and MS-—they have probably sold their soul to keep from being like a Brietbart and Michael Hastings. They are probably part of the Hegelian Dialectic-—although seemingly on the Right-—they are moving us Leftward.......by increments. The old frog in the pot theory and the water is almost boiling.

You would think WheresWaldo would remember what it was like to have a broken nose. He did say the case should have never been brought, but backed down from the Blacks.

Trayvon made the mistake of trying to mug an armed man.

Sadly, that’s how I see it.

Zimm was on the losing end of brain damage or death and made the choice to live.

Sadly, it cost Travon his life.

Whorealdo is seriously considering a senate run on the Republican ticket in the mid-terms.

He announced this months ago on the Factor.....and either he or O'Reilly bring it up every once in a while when they're on together.

So you can expect Rivers to be in a much more conservative mode for the foreseeable future, even though his new-found ideology is as fake as Angela Corey's eyelashes.

The real outrage is that they gave time and sympathy to Anthony Makowski's mother on the show. Acquaint yourself with the case for a moment and then decide if the woman they allowed to trash self-defense as a defense was telling the truth or not: http://abcnews.go.com/GMA/story?id=1064137&page=1#.UeI03knD-Uk

[By the way, a jury awarded her and her husband $1.5 million in a wrongful death lawsuit against the proprietor of the establishment where the non-crime occurred, then subtracted $500,000 from the award because even the civil jury agreed that her son was substantially responsible for his own death.]

A bad night for the Judge. As for Jerry, is anyone really surprised? Yes, tonight Jerry actually called Juan "Brain Cell" Williams "the most intelligent commentator on television."

That’s when I turned on my tv. I feel for her but, the two cases aren’t even close and the way janine couched itwas a weird tie in and why I was flumoxed.

This whole thing is just so much BS.

I hate that we have to live in some other era, which most of us have no relation to.

Sucks....

Juan Williams is a throw back.

He’s such a smart man but, constantly looks in the mirror and see a black man.

I see an American and couldn’t care less about his skin colorbut, for his and other atavistic thunkers reminding us of something endemic and obvious but, not an action or thought process on the rest of us, which ought to rightly shame us.

We just don’t think about that which they accuse us us of even giving a passing thought.

And it got worse, they brought on a woman, who claimed her son had been strangled for 4 minutes and that the perp successvully used Stand Your Ground to get off.

I googled this and found a website with a table of all the Florida Stand Your Ground cases. Only 2 contained elements of strangling, both victims were women.

So, Whorealdo and Judge Jeanine bring on a woman on live tv to make an emotional case against SYG without any vetting, without any evidence that what she says is true. The whole Martin case has been used as a hammer to attack SYG (actually self-defense). They lose their case bigtime and continue on with the attacks of self-defense.

I love Janine but what I was hearing last night was so TF?

Thought her evil twin was talking.

Especially after she interviewed the woman whose son was choked to death and then she started in on the stand your ground laws.
