    Judge denies Zimmerman's motion to disqualify him in Trayvon Martin caseGeorge Zimmerman's motion to disqualify Circuit Judge Kenneth Lester Jr. from the Trayvon Martin shooting case was denied Wednesday. The ruling was issued by Lester following Zimmerman's filing of the motion last month which claimed Lester's comments in an earlier bond order led him to believe Lester was prejudiced against him. Lester had said in the order that Zimmerman and his wife misled him about their finances. In his motion, Zimmerman argues that Lester made "gratuitous, disparaging remarks" about his character in a July 5 ruling setting Zimmerman's bond at...

    SEMINOLE COUNTY, Fla. — Just a week after their son re-launched his website, George Zimmerman's parents have launched their own website, and they're asking for money. George Zimmerman is set to stand trial in the shooting death of Trayvon Martin in February. Zimmerman is charged with second-degree murder in the case. Robert and Gladys Zimmermans' website, RobertAndGladys.com, is a brightly colored red, white and blue site. The homepage features a lengthy story, signed by Robert Zimmerman, about George's life and the struggles the family has faced since the shooting of Martin. The site also provides a link for visitors to...

    Since so many in the media cannot resist turning every tragedy into a political talking point, it was perhaps inevitable that (1) someone would try to link the shooting rampage at the Batman movie in Colorado to the Tea Party, and that (2) some would try to make it a reason to impose more gun control laws. Too many people in the media cannot seem to tell the difference between reporting the news and creating propaganda. NBC News apparently could not resist doctoring the transcript of the conversation between George Zimmerman and the police after the Trayvon Martin shooting. Now...

    A potential witness in the case against George Zimmerman has testified that the neighborhood watch volunteer charged with killing Florida teen Trayvon Martin molested her when they were both children. The unidentified woman told the Duval County State Attorney’s office that Zimmerman began abusing her when she was 6 and continued until she was 16, MyFoxOrlando.com reports. Zimmerman is older than the woman by a little more than a year. The woman also told police that Zimmerman and his family do not like African-Americans. Phone calls Zimmerman made from the Seminole County Jail were also released. A total of 140...

    This year, as always, Florida is a crucial swing state. Because of that, the liberal media is doing all it can to gin up Democratic base voters, attempting to energize them for the November election by bashing Florida's conservative Republican governor Rick Scott and his attempt to clean up voter rolls of noncitizens, who by definition are not allowed to cast votes. The liberal media, particularly hyper-partisan MSNBC, has also attacked efforts in other states to require voter ID. Florida has had a photo ID law since 2002. The tragic February shooting death of Trayvon Martin also led the Left...

    TALLAHASSEE — Florida's controversial "stand your ground" law continues to enjoy widespread support among likely voters, even as a state task force considers rewriting the law, according to a new Tampa Bay Times/Miami Herald/Bay News 9 poll. Nearly 65 percent say the 2005 law — which allows people who believe they are in grave danger to use deadly force to defend themselves — does not need to be changed. There's less consensus when it comes to voters' thoughts on the Trayvon Martin shooting, which thrust the law into the national spotlight this year. Voters are essentially split about whether George...

    “The FBI found no racial bias behind George Zimmerman’s shooting of Miami Gardens teen Trayvon Martin, according to dozens of documents related to the case released Thursday.” Wait, what? A white Hispanic shoots and kills an unarmed black male and race wasn’t the underlying cause? Imagine the frenzy in the NBC News editing booth as they wrestle with how to slice and dice that cognitively dissonant piece of info. But FBI investigators, after talking to just about everyone Zimmerman has known since birth, haven’t been able to come up with so much as an errant N-word, let alone a burning...

Via Orlando Sentinel, FBI interviews: No evidence Zimmerman a racist Federal civil-rights investigators interviewed dozens of George Zimmerman’s friends, neighbors and co-workers, and no one said he was a racist, records released Thursday show.

    SANFORD -- George Zimmerman's attorneys want to disqualify the judge who is presiding over his second-degree murder trial. The motion filed Friday says Zimmerman "has a reasonable fear that he cannot get a fair trial or a fair stand your ground hearing by this court." The motion specifically mentions the new bail Judge Kenneth Lester set for George Zimmerman earlier this month. The motion says Lester made disparaging remarks about Zimmerman's character, says he should be "prosecuted for additional crimes," and is holding the threat of future contempt proceedings over Zimmerman's head. The judge revoked Zimmerman's first $150,000 bond, and...

    Records released Thursday show a federal law-enforcement agent accompanied George Zimmerman to his police interrogations, and FBI interviews did not turn up any sign of racial bias in the shooting of Trayvon Martin. The lead Sanford Police investigator who sought manslaughter charges against George Zimmerman told the FBI that a sergeant and two other officers tried to pressure him into making an arrest in the controversial case — even though he didn’t think there was enough evidence. Sanford Police Officer Chris Serino first made headlines when evidence released in the case showed he sought manslaughter charges against Zimmerman even while...

I was contacted by a producer at The Today Show shortly after they acquired a copy of an exemplar that the police made of George Zimmerman’s voice. They made the exemplar (sample...
