Trayvon Martin´s parents
settle wrongful death claim

Orlando Sentinel, by Rene Stutzman

Original Article

Posted By:Desert Fox, 4/5/2013 3:15:25 PM

SANFORD - Trayvon Martin´s parents have settled a wrongful death claim for an amount believed to be more than $1 million against the homeowners association of the Sanford subdivision where their teenage son was killed. Their attorney, Benjamin Crump, filed that paperwork at the Seminole County Courthouse, a portion of which was made public today. In the five pages of the settlement that were available for public review, the settlement amount had been marked out. Lower in the agreement, the parties specified that they would keep that amount confidential. When asked during an earlier interview whether the amount was

$400,000 for the attorney, $600,000 for the parents. Hope they invest it wisely. Maybe they could borrow the president´s ghost-writer,

In a way, I hope Zimmerman goes to trial and it all comes out what a lowlife Martin was. A friend sent me a picture the other day of Martin just before he died and he did not look like the picture that the LSM have been showing of that innocent looking 13 yr old. This picture was of Martin with tatoos all over. He looked more like a thug than an angel. If Zimmerman hadn´t killed him, someone else probably would have. He did not look like the type of kid who was destined for a long life.

Some months ago theconservativetreehouse.com connected a lot of dots (from sources documented and linked) that revealed Trayvon was not living with either his mother Sybrina nor father Tracy when he went north with his father to visit his (pregnant) "fiancee" Brandi. Neither Tracy nor Brandi was there the night Trayvon was shot. It is believed that they didn´t find out until they returned in the morning.

Interesting (and long) is this piece from theconservativetreehouse.com about Trayvon and his parents and what was going on during that last school year when he - before the school year was completed - was absent for 53 days. And in trouble with the school police.

This article even speculates that Trayvon may have been removed from his mother´s home as part of a "diversion" project that was big in Dade County at the time.

New info from another article:

Crump asked that the agreement remain confidential. However, the court has decided that there is no reason for the agreement to remain confidential, and is giving Crump 10 days to appeal that decision.

We have learned, that the homeowners association´s insurance company did not have to pay out a claim on the case.

I´ve often wondered if Zimmerman´s defense attorney was aware of the info on conservativetreehouse. I found that blog right after it happened and was following it for awhile. Wow there is some damaging info against that thug treyvon. It had always upset me the way that posted that 12 year old picture instead of the gold tooth thug he really was. These parents are the worst of the worst and don´t deserve a dime.
This has been a racial showdown from the beginning.

Okay, THAT was certainly embarrassing. At the end of a joint news conference with Dutch Prime Minister Mark Rutte in the Netherlands on Tuesday, the applause for Barack Obama came from a grand total of one guy. One. After thanking the crowd twice for suffering through his boring, standard worn-out spiel, Obama looked around the room, expecting the usual fanfare and applause he receives from his loyal followers back home. It never came. Instead, the Leader of the Free World was met with one slow, awkward clap. Question: was MSNBC’s Chris Matthews in the house?

BRUSSELS — President Obama offered a sustained and forceful rejoinder against Russia on Wednesday, denouncing the “brute force” he said it has used to intimidate neighbors like Ukraine and vowing that the United States “will never waver” in standing up for its NATO allies against aggression by Moscow. In a speech meant as a capstone to his trip to Europe in the midst of an East-West confrontation with Russia, Mr. Obama addressed Moscow’s justifications for its intervention in Ukraine point by point, dismissing them as “absurd” or unmerited. He even defended the Iraq war, which he had opposed as a senator,

Just days before local rivals Louisville and Kentucky face off in the Sweet 16, the state´s senior senator, Mitch McConnell, released an ad for his reelection that called out "socialist notions" and climaxed with a quick clip of a blue-and-white basketball team celebrating its NCAA championship. It was Duke. "Obviously we were horrified by the error and quickly changed it," said UK alumnus and McConnell spokesperson Allison Moore. But the new edit failed, too. A second version featuring star freshman Julius Randle dunking was quickly swapped in, only to be hit with a cease-and-desist from the University of Kentucky for "improper

THE HAGUE, NETHERLANDS—Moments after deflecting a question about his diminished influence on the world stage, President Obama described Russia as a “regional power” operating in Crimea out of weakness, not strength. Noting Russia’s long-standing influence in all of Ukraine, Obama said Russian President Vladimir Putin’s illegal annexation of Crimea “indicates less influence, not more.” I guess that’s why Ukraine’s defense minister resigned and Ukrainian troops bugged out of Crimea, leaving it to Russian forces. This is the only “off ramp” that matters in Crimea. Ukraine and its rhetorically florid Western allies took it.

Harry Reid: People Aren’t Educated

Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid (D., Nev.) said the fault of struggling to sign up on the Obamacare exchanges didn’t lie with the faulty website, but with the people who weren’t “educated on how to use the Internet.” Explaining the reasoning behind the latest Obamacare delay, Reid said too many people just didn’t know to use their computer properly and needed more time. Apparently, it had nothing to do with the well-documented failings of the website that have embarrassed the White House for months. “We have hundreds of thousands of people who tried to sign up who didn’t get through,” he said.

Iowa´s Sen. Tom Harkin, a popular left-wing Democrat, announced early last year that he´ll retire at the end of his fifth term. Elected in 1984, Harkin is now the sixth most senior senator, and the most senior junior senator--a 21st-century Fritz Hollings. Iowa´s senior senator, Republican Chuck Grassley, was elected in 1980 and won a sixth term in 2010. At age 80, he´s the second oldest member of Congress´s upper chamber, after California´s Dianne Feinstein. Most observers believe Democrats are likelier than not to hold the Harkin seat.

Russian President Vladimir Putin has a long-festering grudge: He deeply resents the West for winning the Cold War. He blames the United States in particular for the collapse of his beloved Soviet Union, an event he has called the "worst geopolitical catastrophe of the 20th century." His list of grievances is long and was on full display in his March 18 speech announcing the annexation of Crimea by Russia. He is bitter about what he sees as Russia´s humiliations in the 1990s—economic collapse; the expansion of NATO to include members of the U.S.S.R.´s own "alliance," the Warsaw Pact; Russia´s agreement to

Russia´s military staged training exercises on Tuesday in Transdniestria, a breakaway sliver of Moldova that is a focus of tension following Russia´s annexation of Ukraine´s Crimea region. NATO´s top military commander said on Sunday he was worried that Russia might have its eye on Transdniestria, a largely Russian-speaking region that borders western Ukraine, after seizing Crimea, which has a narrow ethnic Russian majority. The Interfax news agency quoted a spokesman for Russia´s Western Military District, Colonel Oleg Kochetkov, as saying that Russian forces stationed in Transdniestria had "conducted an anti-terrorism drill and practiced operations to rebuff an attack on their military base".

The Affordable Care Act returned to the Supreme Court on Tuesday, as the Justices heard a major challenge to the law´s birth-control mandate. Five and maybe even six Justices across ideological lines seemed discomfited by the Administration´s cramped conception of religious liberty. In 2012 the Health and Human Services Department published a regulation interpreting an ObamaCare provision to require all for-profit employer health plans to cover 20 contraception methods, including four that some religious believers consider abortifacients and sterilization. The combined cases of Sebelius v. Hobby Lobby Stores and Conestoga Wood Specialties v. Sebelius are challenging the mandate under a 1993

But he ignores Obama´s appeasement as president and push when a senator to disarm Ukraine. The Senate Majority Leader´s latest claim is consistent with other utterances out of his parallel universe, including calling Stage IV cancer patients liars about Obamacare´s collateral damage and asking why we´d want to save one child with cancer.

Former Secretary of Defense Donald Rumsfeld has said that ´a trained ape´ could do a better job managing American interests in Afghanistan than President Obama. The retired Republican made the insult while doing a phone-in interview for Greta Van Susteren´s Fox News show on Tuesday. He argued that the President made a serious error by failing to negotiate a status forces agreement with Afghan President Hamid Karzai. Gawker points out that such an agreement would effectively commit the United States to having a certain number of troops in the country for a number of years beyond the already-agreed-upon plan which

A pair of potentially catastrophic cases will be argued before the Supreme Court on Tuesday. These cases are brought by privately held, for-profit corporations that are arguing their religious convictions should preclude them from offering employees the health insurance required by law. Specifically, these private employers don’t want to allow their employees’ insurance to cover some forms of birth control because, contrary to medicaland scientific evidence, they believe some birth control causes abortions. Corporations are not people. Corporations cannot have religious views. If religious rights are extended to corporations, it puts us on a slippery slope where any private company

Media Matters, the website of choice for Fox News haters everywhere, attacked the cable news network on Monday for using the term “homosexual” in its programming — advancing the peculiar argument that the scientific term has a “pejorative connotation.” The online “media watchdog” contends that calling gay people “homosexual” is “a practice that’s quickly falling out of favor with major news outlets due the term’s often pejorative connotation and frequent use by opponents of LGBT equality.” Fox News, they chide, “has yet to update its language when referring to gay and lesbian people.” Buttressing their argument?
