RUSH: Developments in the Trayvon Martin case, and you'd be hard-pressed to find these developments out there. There have been two dramatic developments in the Trayvon Martin shooting case. According to the ABC News, George Zimmerman's family doctor saws him the morning after the shooting of Trayvon Martin. Here's what George Zimmerman's doctor found: A broken nose, two black eyes, bruises on his face and lip, two cuts on the back of his head, and a back injury.
The NBC affiliate in Florida is reporting that the medical director who performed the autopsy on Trayvon Martin found only two injuries on his body: the gunshot wound and broken skin on his knuckles. Welcome to the Duke lacrosse case all over again. Everything Zimmerman said about what happened to him turns out to be true after the media trying to cast him along with the civil rights coalitions of this country, the race-baiters, as abject lies. (interruption) What do you mean, not rush to judgment? It's been two months. I'm not speculating. I'm telling you what the doctor said. There's no speculation going on. The doctor is not speculating. The doctor did the exam the day after the incident happened. It's all been suppressed. Nobody's reported it. That's the point. And there wasn't even any media curiosity about it.
Now, I'm not a forensic scientist, and I don't guess on matters like this. I don't have to guess; the facts are here. It's kind of hard not to connect the dots. Now, all of this information is coming out. You know why it's coming out? Because we're in the discovery phase of the Zimmerman trial, where each side has to show the other side what evidence they have. But you really have to wonder here, folks, why none of this came out before in the prosecutor's charging affidavit. Can we go back to that? The charging affidavit, which, remember Dershowitz at Harvard said it was an embarrassment that wouldn't survive the first inspection by a judge, but it did. But he said it was pathetic, it was unprofessional.
I happened to report what Dershowitz said and my own affiliate in Jacksonville called the attorney's office, "What do you think about what Limbaugh said about your charging document?" None of this is in the charging document, or the affidavit. I thought that the state was obligated, or obliged, anyway, to provide all the relevant details in a case to the judge, but apparently I was mistaken. But, anyway, as I said, ladies and gentlemen, the news media seem to be ignoring these developments. I mean they're out there, touched on a little bit by ABC. But the news that I just gave you has barely been mentioned on the cable news channels. I don't watch it, but I'm told that MSNBC only got around to reporting this about an hour ago, and they ran a banner at the bottom of the screen that said, "Proof of self-defense? Trayvon Martin family lawyer calls medical report suspicious."
So the doctor puts out a report, Zimmerman's doctor, and now MSNBC is saying he might be a liar. And they have to because they gotta cover their own rear ends the way they reported this. (interruption) I don't know if Zimmerman's doctor is a white Hispanic, Mr. Snerdley. But you really have to wonder here when the news media began to lose interest in the Trayvon Martin story, 'cause you know they did. They lost interest. They were going 150 miles an hour on this story, and then all of a sudden they dropped it like a hot potato, and you have to wonder why they did that. Was it when they found out that George Zimmerman is actually Hispanic and a Democrat to boot? Was it when Trayvon Martin's gangsta-like tweets surfaced along with the more recent photos of him with his gold teeth? Maybe the news media is just afraid of whipping up racial... no, they do like to whip up racial strife. But they didn't even proceed under that rubric. They just dropped this case like a hot potato.
Another detail that has come out in the local reports. Zimmerman's grandfather was black. That's exactly right. That has also surfaced. I wonder how long all of this stuff has been known by our friends in the Drive-By Media? George Zimmerman has more black in him than Elizabeth Warren has Indian. Exactly right. George Zimmerman's grandfather was black. Now, I had never heard that before, but assuming that that's true, George Zimmerman is a heck of a lot more black than Elizabeth Warren is Indian, exactly as you stated, Mr. Snerdley. (interruption) You have a question? Yeah, he's a black-white Hispanic. In fact, given our current culture and the president, the way he weighs in on things, I have the perfect way now to describe George Zimmerman. If all this is true, and just going by the photos that we've seen of Zimmerman, I'd almost have to say that if Obama had another son, he would look a hell of a lot like George Zimmerman.
RUSH: A minor, minor correction here. It was Zimmerman's mother's grandfather who was black, which would make it his great-grandfather. Zimmerman's great-grandfather was black. It still makes him more black than Elizabeth Warren is Indian. You believe we're talking about people this way? You believe we have to categorize people this way? And we are simply reacting. This is the way the left, this is the way the media, this is the way Obama, the Democrat Party, look at people and categorize them. It wasn't me, folks. The New York Times calls George Zimmerman a white Hispanic.
This is absurd. I mean, all this attention they claim they have to the humanity of people, all of this compassion. They don't have the slightest bit of humanity when it comes to people. They simply look at them as faceless colors of skin, sexual orientation, gender, all of that. That's how they see them, victims, minorities. As far as their humanity, it doesn't matter. By the way, here's another thing. In addition to everything you've heard now from Zimmerman's doctor about all of his injuries and about Trayvon Martin with bruised knuckles discovered in the autopsy, the FBI, which is part of Eric Holder's Justice Department, is planning to charge George Zimmerman with a hate crime. The local prosecutor in Florida claim that Zimmerman profiled Trayvon Martin. Not only did he profile Trayvon Martin, he stalked Trayvon Martin before killing him, and unlike the charge of second-degree murder, this hate crime, if he's convicted of it, could get Zimmerman executed.
So apparently noticing a stranger in your neighborhood is profiling and following this stranger to see what he's up to is stalking. They both are hate crimes, according to the Obama regime, even though the article mentions in passing that Zimmerman's mother's grandfather is black. Again, I had not heard that detail. So in all of this now, every aspect of the case that George Zimmerman told, seems to be true. His doctor with a long list of major injuries incurred by Zimmerman. Bruised knuckles and the gunshot wound for Trayvon Martin. And they're going after Zimmerman now for a hate crime because the local prosecutor used the word "profiled" in her charging affidavit, the affidavit that Alan Dershowitz said was inferior.
ALL of this came out - weeks ago - because of the extraordinary dedication and passion of the Conservative Blogosphere.
The MSM “lost interest” in this story when they started reading the Conservative Blogs and realized they - the MSM - were on the hook for zillion dollar lawsuits.
First fact: Obama does not seem to care about defusing the situation and preventing impending race violence.
Second fact: Obama does not seem to care about the damage done to Democrats by his endorsement of homosexual “marriage”.
Both of these stands should hurt him & the Democrats in November, but Obama seems unconcerned.
Is he acting on deep, heartfelt convictions, “I MUST do what is right!”
Or when election time rolls around does he believe that it really won’t matter WHAT the public thinks of him, he still will be in control. Permanently.
Is that his thinking?
The toxicology reports could also be interesting.
Yes, but I'm thinking that the doctor who reported the cuts the next day would have noticed some bruising. I'm surprised he didn't mention it.
>>Yes, but I’m thinking that the doctor who reported the cuts the next day would have noticed some bruising. I’m surprised he didn’t mention it.<<
Maybe he did, and ABC just didn’t report it. His actual report has not been made public.
At Zimmerman’s bond hearing, Judge Lester asked only one question. As Corey’s lead detective Dale Gilbreath was about to leave the stand, Lester asked him how close the two were when the gun fired. Gilbreath answered “Close” and noted the presence of gun powder residue and stippling on Martin’s skin.
He had a back injury too that would be consistent with begin slammed into the ground/curb.
Barack Obama strikes me as thinking very little for himself. He permits himself to be handled. What we saw him do is the result of a political and spiritual struggle far beyond himself. And yes this “gay” parasite in the Democrat party is not thinking about whether or not it will kill its host. If the Democrat crowd wrecks its appointed robot, I mean savior, then well too bad for him.
That might take longer to develop.
The Sanford police, who initially handled this, knew about all that. Which is why they let Mr. Z walk — it’s quite true that they hauled him into the police station for a normal investigation, but as soon as they saw how beat up he was and heard what he reported, they let him walk.
Oh, these Demon-Rats are cruising for lawsuits up their wazoos. This is the Hail Mary of Hail Marys, or else they really just don’t care that they’ll lose, they are simply resigned to causing as much damage as possible on the way out.
Holders FBI is still looking at a hate crime?
Hey, that’s my FBI, way to go gang that couldn’t shoot straight
Thanks, I didn’t know that. It certainly can’t hurt Z’s case if the wound was located on Martin’s left side and the wound was contact or close to contact. That would indicate that Martin was within arm’s length and possibly on top of Z.
The 90 year old war veteran husband was beaten and his jaw broken. He was shot in the face numerous times with a BB gun and sent to the hospital in critical condition.
The 85 year old partially blind wife was RAPED and then BEATEN TO DEATH.
Can you just imagine the pain, the humiliation, the horror that dear old lady experienced being gang raped by that pack of feral animals?
(the autopsy states she was raped. Dont think all of these animals didnt all participate)
And can you imagine the pain, the horror of that dear old husband having to witness this?
Mr. Strait died from his injuries last week.
Theres a lot more involved here than a home invasion and robbery.
WHERE ARE THE CHARGES OF A RACIAL HATE CRIME??
90 year old husbands jaw broken and shot in face with a BB gun numerous times?
85 wife year old semi blind wife RAPED and BEATEN to death??
Why does it take a foreign press to enlighten America as to this henious crime?
WHERE IS THE NATIONAL OUTRAGE?
Have they caught the rest of the gang of feral blacks who raped, tortured and murdered this elderly woman? Are they even looking? Not a word about it in the media.
Because there’s nothing new to report until the trial. News stories get cold fast.
“This is absurd. I mean, all this attention they claim they have to the humanity of people, all of this compassion. They don’t have the slightest bit of humanity when it comes to people.

Bingo, it is only brought out to DIVIDE humanity into tiny little groups so there is no unity and we fight each other. DIVIDE AND CONQUER.
Well the T & Z case coverage has wound down to near nothingness now, except for the minor occasional pot shot at the evidence that backs up Mr. Z’s account.
Yup, once more it’s the folks on the other side of the pond that know more about American goings-on than most Americans do.
Faceless. That nails the Democrat view of this horribly uncooperative populace. People aren’t persons except for the occasional sympathetic symbolic case. (Oh for that matter, this “Julia” sponger had no face either.)
Have we forgotten? O is from Kenya.
