Zimmerman not guilty
American Thinker, by Thomas Lifson

Original Article

Posted By:Desert Fox, 7/14/2013 1:15:58 AM

After a long Saturday of deliberations, the six women on the George Zimmerman trial delivered a verdict of not guilty on all counts at nearly 10 PM local time. Justice has been done, in a case that never should have been brought. I join with law professor William Sullivan´s call: It´s not too early to demand an inquiry into the prosecution of this case. Angela Corey should resign. Al Sharpton, with blood still on his hands from the Freddy´s Fashion Mart fire he instigated, is fulminating:

Angela Corey must be punished for egregious prosecutorial misconduct, much like Mike Nifong.

I am very worried that Holder will bring federal civil rights charges against Zimmermen.

We used to have a constitutional protection against double jeopardy, but thanks to "federal civil rights prosecutions," the "progressives" have destroyed that, the way they have so many other aspects of the Constitution.

As for the "lies" that Al "Tawana Brawley" Sharpton has the brass clangers to accuse Zimmerman of telling, what are they?

Why, he claimed he didn´t know the name of the street, and then, after being shown a map, he DID know the name of the street!

LIAR!!!

Being called a racist liar by Al Sharpton is like being anointed a Jedi by Yoda himself.

Thank G-d for them.

Dear GOP:

Please note the spectacle of the entire "progressive" half of the nation, the MSM, the White House, and every elected official with a D after their name - hoping for and encouraging the lynching of an innocent Hispanic man, and (here comes the important part, GOP!) no one expects this to affect the pro-Democrat Hispanic vote. Got that, GOP? If you´re a Democrat you can lynch Hispanics, but (here it comes again) it will not - not! - hurt your chances with Hispanics at the ballot box! Do you understand what´s going on here, GOP? Think real hard now...

The Justice Department, and the Administration, rather obviously prejudged the situation against Zimmerman.

Why?

Post-decision rioting could be a useful distraction for something the Administration wants to slip in with little notice.

Or...it could be a ready-made excuse to activate Obama´s "Civilian Army"...to put down "nationwide unrest"...and set the stage for a perpetual Presidency.

I think the Jury knew what they were going to do long before late Saturday evening decision. They waited that long in order to minimize potential rioting and to allow Zimmerman to go someplace safe with little notice. Not to mention that they´d like a discreet exit themselves. Smart ladies.

Angela Corey´s news conference after the verdict was pathetic. She was all gussied up, obviously ready for the cameras. She NEVER looked that good in court! She stood there and sweetly (dripping with southern charm)answered questions and basically re-tried Zimmerman in one breath while saying that they accept the Jury´s verdict. I agree, she should be fired! She is an embarrassment here in Florida!

The Trayvon is an angel spin makes me sick. He was living • Suppressing exculpatory evidence recovered from the (double-password-protected) cell phone of Trayvon Martin that reveal deleted texts of the 17-year-old bragging about street-fighting with friends and relatives and photos showing him brandishing guns, gangsta-style. This evidence supports Zimmerman´s claim he feared Martin and shot in self-defense.
• Disallowing Martin´s criminal background, including arrests by Miami-Dade school district police for drugs, theft, graffiti and other delinquent behavior. (Martin, in fact, had been suspended from school the week he jumped Zimmerman inside his gated townhouse complex, after police found stolen jewelry and burglary tools inside his backpack.)
with his father and his girlfriend due to his mother kicking him out of her house for after being expelled from school for having burglary tools and stolen jewelry in his possession..

Tell the facts of this case without any mention of race and see what response you will get. It is pretty cut and dried. Obama, the media, and entertainment industry stuck their noses in and created this whole mess. They lied. Ommitted facts. Ginned up racial division. And now they are in full throttle outrage mode.

I applaud the women of the jury. They got it right. Hopefully, their lives won´t be ruined by this and they can move on. George Zimmerman and his family deserve peace and I hope he sues the networks for the false accusations and omissions they made. I pray that Obama and Holder don´t do what they have threatened to do if he was found not guilty, and that is to charge him with civil rights violations. That would be a further travesty of justice, but nothing new from this vile administration.

Tawana Brawley all over again - I lived in the Hyde Park, Poughkeepsie area and the media and blacks all wanting to hang various officials of the town up to and including the sheriff. There should be severe punishment for cases like this one and charges brought against any official, including the judge who acted so unprofessionally. Thank God that the ladies on the jury saw through the lies.

Some validation, as well, for the poor I.T. whistleblower guy who got fired just a day ago from his job in the Angela Corey´s State Attorney´s Office. And why? For alerting the defense team that this critical cell phone information and photos were being withheld BY theState Attorney´s Office.

Victor Cruz ought to watch what comes out of his mouth. As for GZ, this is the correct outcome for a case that never should have come to trial in the first place.

Now the real criminal investigation - GZ vs. the msm should start. The msm talking heads (they know who they are) should now get the chance to defend their fabrications and try out a pair of hand cuffs for the one-way trip to the local penn. We just have one problem - who would report the proceedings for the always great L.com et al to post?

I hope these jury members are left alone and their privacy respected if they don´t want to come forward. There is still a danger for them and GZ from racist revenge. The judge who has disgraced herself should extend the privacy order indefinitely. If Sharpton, Jackson et all are against racism let them help calm the tensions. The same goes for the networks who edited tapes early on to fit their racist template.

Regarding Eric Holder - he has set the precedent with the Black Panther case that crimes perpetrated by Blacks can be excused. This sets up a dangerous atmosphere for not only GZ, but the entire country if that is interpreted as "we´re free to do anything we want"

Thank Heaven, that the jury stood as a bulwark against state oppression and mob media mentality. Those jurors were all that stood between Zimmerman and the lynch mob.

I found absolutely delightful that defense lawyer West, when asked his opinion about the judge´s evenhandedness, stated that he would demur, and that he planned on keeping his bar license for a few more years.
He was subtly referring to bar rules about showing disrespect to the judge. Absolutely priceless.

Congratulations to West and O´Meara for their defense of this man, George Zimmerman. West tore the media up in his last comment!
That Corey woman was a stereotype of a southern woman in looks and dress (bless her heart!), that good southern women never duplicate and her words were so wrong! They lost the case, thank God!
Now, I hope Zimmerman´s attorneys bring civil suits against the State of Florida, the DOJ for transporting rioters across state lines to protest, the city commissioner, Sharpton and Jackson and anyone else they think ginned up hatred or hid evidence.

I doubt Obama via Eric Holder will file federal charges against Zimmerman because mid-term elections are coming up fairly soon, and Obama doesn´t want extra animosity towards himself, Holder, and the Dem Party by proxy to rub off on all of them before the elections.

Double Dittos, #7.

I still believe that St. Trayvon was part of the farm-team reconnaissance efforts of a bigger STG.

The article didn´t say what Sharpton thinks the ´´next step in terms of the federal government´´ should be but I´m sure Obama will sign some sort of Executive Order in the next few weeks to take away more freedom.

Nevermind the prosecution, just doing what they were told. Rather, listen to what Levin said about the judge. A liberal hack ( appointed by a Bush) who was as unproffesional as possible. What hasn´t been pointed out is that a gun was used, and where´s there a gun, you´ll find O´Bummer and his sidekick. Wait, watch and see.

If Bill Richardson´s parents had a son he´d look like George Zimmerman. Has he been a guest on MSNBS during the trial?

How hard does Geraldo have to fight back the urge to mention his own broken nose?

Does anyone remember Loretta Sanchez´s last name before she ran against Bob Dornan?

Is Victor Cruz a ´black Hispanic?´ He said in his tweet he was confused.

Has Matt Damon blamed the verdict on fracking?

Hopefully we can get answers to these important questions.

Attorney Mark O´Mara was not exaggerating when he described the Zimmerman case as a David-Goliath confrontation. The MSM tried and convicted Zimmerman on the first day and never stopped presenting him as a monster and Trayvon as an angel. The race industry apparatchiks, led by Rev, Sharpton, did all they could to rouse racial tensions. As soon as he could, our president picked his side by saying, "If I had had a son, he would have looked just like Trayvon Martin. Then the politicians, from the Florida Governor on down, decided to interfere with the police investigation and, then, to take it over entirely. The state´s lawyers, showing themselves to be an especially sleazy lot in how they manipulated and twisted the evidence to fit their increasingly improbable monster-angel theory, were finally reduced to shouting and purely emotional argument. Yet to be resolved are allegations that the state knowingly withheld evidence from the defense. And, last but not least, we find that AG Holder sent a DOJ crew down to Sanford to help organize anti-Zimmerman rallies. In spite of all this, the jury looked at all the evidence, considered it carefully and, then, by declaring Zimmerman "not guilty." rendered some real justice.

Obama amd Holder -Sharpton, too- got exactly the verdict they wanted. Now they can continue the full throated race baiting.

The only question is how they want to play it for the 2014 elections. Remember that lo-info turnout tends to plummet in non-presidential election years.

I felt from the beginning that the jury would never find him guilty of Second Decree, but when the "judge" allowed manslaughter in, I figured the jury would split the difference in an effort to give both sides something --not knowing that a manslaughter conviction actually carried a heavier sentence than second degree.

I have to say, I was stunned when the verdict came in last night. The jury did the right thing.

I´m heartened to see that Sanford and all of Florida has not erupted in violence. That´s a good sign.

Ardent fan of Thomas Lifson´s American Thinker - and he´s correct.

However - it will never happen and the Obama Administration will double down by crushing Zimmerman under assorted Civil Rights charges and other specious, ex-officio, bureaucratic ways to harass the man and his family until he takes his own life.

I was reading the comments over at http://www.lucianne.com/thread/?artnum=743725, the Most Read from yesterday. Comment #62 had points I´d never heard:

The judge barred autopsy results that "showed evidence of -extensive- long term heavy drug use. The liver of a 40 year old, and brain lesions due to Dextromethorphan Hydrobromide use. DXM is the active ingredient in some cough syrups, and is known for causing violent, psychotic behavior."

The judge barred evidence of Trayvon´s possession of "stolen property (Women’s jewelry, you know the sort of thing a house burglerer might steal?) and possession of burglary tools, possession of drug paraphenalia, possession of marijuana, Multiple suspensions from school for criminal behavior, most of it violent."

There is at least some reason to believe that Trayvon really was acting like he was on drugs, that he was casing the neighborhood and that he attacked GZ, not the other way around. But the defense was not allowed to present it.

Some blond bimbo commentator on FOX just a few minutes ago, still trumpeting the "Zimmerman was pursuing Trayvon" meme. Will ever they stop with the "Zimmerman got out of his vehicle and pursued Taryvon"?

Don´t these idiots pay attention? Don´t they listen to anything. Are they incapable of --if not reading, at least listening, to the facts?

Robert Zimmerman, Sr., George´s father has thanked The Conservative Treehouse for all of their research and investigation, and their standing by George throughout this long ordeal.

This case is not over by a long shot. The maggoty entity that is the Florida legal system needs to have some sunlight. IT Tech Robert Kruidbos tried to let some in and, after being lauded for excellent performance only two months ago, has been fired by Angela Corey for "poor performance". It´s not over, folks:

State Attorney Angela Corey fires information technology director who raised concerns in Trayvon Martin case
http://lucianne.com/thread/?artnum=743777

As for anyone who thinks this verdict does not affect them, that this case was just about two guys in little town in Florida who got into a tussle that went bad, you are not seeing the forest for the trees. This could happen anywhere that malicious prosecution is fostered and grows like a cancer. And is enhanced by the race hustlers who are ready to go when race is involved. It could get you or someone close to you. It is not our American way.

I´ve mentioned this before.
Last night there was mention of the 2005 Florida Stand Your Ground Law which should have exonerated Zimmerman with the evidence.
It became a problem when the law was tested in a teenage black thug being shot by a ´white´ Hispanic and evidence of Zimmerman being attacked and standing his ground.
If the very same situation and evidence been the same and Zimmerman defended himself against a white teenage skate boarder who acted like Trayvon ´Skittles´ Martin there wouldn´t have been a trial. Florida would have said the law worked.

I just found out that the lead defense attorney, O´Mara, grew up in the same little New York City town that I did. Nice to see.

This federal double jeopardy disaster cannot be constitutional. Does anyone know if it has properly been challenged all the way to the Supreme Court? Although maybe they would just say it was a tax...

I have absolutely NO sympathy for Trayvon’s parents. If they were pawns of the race baiting industry, they were willing pawns. The mother has done everything possible to cash in on the mess. If the two of them had put their efforts into parenting a young Trayvon instead of being welfare pimps and training him to be a thug, they might not have lost that son, almost certainly they would not have lost him in the way they did. Who taught Trayvon to think of whites as “creepy-assed crackers”? Who made excuses for Trayvon to steal and fight? The grieving parents, that’s who. No, I do not have sympathy for those two.

It might be kind of difficult for Angela Nifong to run for any political office if she´s in the middle of a lawsuit, and in the process of being disbarred by the Florida State Bar for violations of the law in persecuting George Zimmerman.

That fat, ugly, sorry excuse for a woman is a real piece of work. On television last night, still trumpeting lie after lie after lie.

Typical Liberal. If you tell the lie often enough, people will believe it --which obviously, the media did. All of the media, the vast majority of the Talking Heads at FOX included it seems.

If Al Sharpton wants people to be disciplined, he should start with his own community instead of race-baiting.

There are federal laws against someone taking action against anyone who blows the whistle on an illegal action. That person who blew the whistle against Corey needs to lawyer up and file charges against Corey for just that. It would not look too great to have an employee lauded for excellent performance and shortly after, fire that person for poor performance.

And like many others here, I´m glad to see Zimmerman acquitted of all charges, but I will withhold any celebration until I learn that the federal DOJ is NOT going to pursue charges of violating Martin´s "civil rights". And why is it that it seems that only blacks can have their "civil rights" violated?

Yeah, yeah, the private needs to go to prison for following an immoral, unethical, illegal order ... now about the general who issued that order? This came from well above Corey, Nelson, and Holder. Who was it that said that´s my son?

Memo to Al Sharpton, Grand Kleagle of the Black Klan: Shut up. Please, would you and your followers (including most of the MSM and your teammate BHO) fold up your bedsheets and hoods and slink off over the horizon?

All my admiration is for the six women jurors, who exhibited the courage and clearheadedness to deliver the verdict they did.

Personally, I enjoyed last night´s post-verdict performance of "A RaceCrime Named Desire," by Angela "Blanche DuBois" Corey and her supporting cast. For a moment there in her black-laced decolletage I thought she might get the vapors thanking every one of her co-conspirators.

Saved by the jury. And I see no upside at all in anyone on that jury going public. If they are as wise as their deliberation and decision, they will get on with their lives and not look back.
But Florida gave us a judge, prosecutors and a State Attorney truly worthy of our corrupt news media. They all deserve each other. And thankfully, they can all go pound sand on this one. After they´re done whining.

1. Angela Corey should be fired first thing tomorrow morning.
2. If common sense were to be used, most people would have dropped this by asking WHO drew first blood.
3. Very serious problem we have in America.
Each of us must think about this long and hard.
The President of the United States (he´s black) needed all the help he could get to stay in office. His base was not as enthused as it was the first time. Obama USED this event to rile up his base, and sock it to whitey. A win-win for him.
In every city of every State in America, a sub-culture has been growing. Fatherless wolf cubs of teen aged mothers, who have created their own language, their own music, their own twisted sense of right and wrong, and their focus of blame on the miserable world they live in (it´s the whites). This culture fights against anything done to assist these kids, such as education and the myriad programs and outreach costing billions over the last 40 years. I would bet my last dollar that elderly blacks who grew up segregated are better educated than the typical 17 year old today. They married and stayed married and kept their families together. The problem today is not skin color, it is their culture.
How do we really help the Rachel Jeantels of today?

I have had a broken nose several times and know that a blow there completely immobiles you. I have also hit my head on a hard surface more than once. You could get your head slammed a number of times without causing a compression wound like Z suffered.
A blow to the head that knocks you out, does not have to bleed.
I would love for someone to punch these liar liberals straight in the nose and slam their heads several times on concrete and see how minor they felt the assault was, after the fact.

For those who question the dual prosecution, former jeopardy ("double jeopardy" as its known)does not apply. The U.S. and Florida are two sovereigns. In any event, while possible and entirely wished for by the left and Holder,et al,the civil rights criminal statutes may not apply to a private citizen not acting under color of law (think Rodney King.)

The real heroes in this mess are the six ladies who had the collective courage to do the right thing under enormous pressure.

During the press interview after the verdict, Angela Cory refused to answer a question regarding her firing of an investigator on her staff. of course, we know that he found additional data on Trayvon Martin´s cell phone which showed the young man´s interest in matters that would be damaging to the Prosecution´s case. The judge allowed Mr Zimmerman´s background into the trial ( the negative aspects ) but refused to allow Trayvon Martin´s background to be entered as evidence, which would have been very damaging .The judge was not impartial and she should be sanctioned along with the state attorney´s who did not turn over evidence to the defense, which is mandated by law. This case was poisoned by the Government , the Media,
and activists who wanted persecution, not prosecution. After the President´ statement last year, this trial should not even have been held in the U.S. (In my opinion). Looks like the jury believed the evidence and disregarded the racial hysteria, which had nothing to do with this case. Monday we will see how many people were killed\wounded in Chicago over the weekend and we´ll expect a statement from the President on THAT matter.
Hopefully there will be no one killed and no statement required.

#38, when George Zimmerman´s attorney was asked if that information being barred was a loss for Zimmerman´s defense, this was his answer:

“No!” O’Mara said. “I like the idea that we’re limiting the evidence to what it should be. It was five to six minutes that happened from the time of the non-emergency call to the time of the gunshot and afterwards with the emergency call. If we limit it to that, whatever that jury decides has to be the proper verdict, as long as they follow the evidence and the law, and then we’re done.”

My hope is that some of the anguish, outrage, hostility and hatred caused by the manipulation of this case can be dispelled by a full airing of facts.

My heart breaks for what the Left has done and are doing to decent people of all skin colors (Americans) in this country. Look at the genuine anguish on the faces of this woman and her children: http://col.stb01.s-msn.com/i/3E/50EDE6F07E918B0FA4CCE6EE2EB86.jpg .

The emotions surrounding this case came as much, or more, from a result of the lies and manipulation by those with their own evil purposes as from the events that brought about the tragic death of Trayvon Martin.

I pray that God, who has power to bring good results from bad deeds, will bless us to overcome the evil efforts to divide us. May He help us to love Him and our country enough to love one another as we should. May He be merciful to us and give us understanding that we may be merciful to each other.

"The system has failed: Hundreds demonstrators voice their disappointment and anger over not guilty verdict in George Zimmerman trial."

The above headline illustrates the unbridgeable gulf that exists between mindless emotionalism and the rule of law. I agree with the majority that the system worked and I am cheered that justice prevailed. In general whites and blacks, liberals and conservatives live in two mutually incomprehensible worlds.

Last night when Sharpton gave his statement and summation of events leading up to Martin being killed he omitted the most important factor of all, that Martin clearly assaulted Zimmerman by punching Zimmerman in the face thus breaking his nose, knocking Zimmerman to the ground, and then slamming Zimmerman´s head against the concrete sidewalk. Clearly that was a criminal assault perpetrated by Martin that could have resulted in serious bodily injury to Zimmerman.

Only after that happened, and with the assault still in progress, did Zimmerman produce his legally concealed handgun and shoot Martin. By any measure Zimmerman shooting Martin at that point was an act of self-defense on the part of Zimmerman, fully in accordance with Florida law. The jury followed also the law and reached the correct decision in keeping with Florida law.

No doubt the liberal and progressives clearly peeved at all the concealed carry laws coming into existence all over the country, that are a real danger to thugs who at any opportunity assault law abiding people with their fists, would have liked a jury decision to the affect that it is some degree of murder if a person with a concealed carry permit being assaulted by a thug with fists is guilty if the law abiding person defended himself or herself by utilizing a concealed firearm.

Give it to the true victim, Zimmerman!

And if ever a public lynching needed to be carried out, it is that ugly black racist idiot Al "Tawana Bradley" Sharpton!!!

I am so sick of the left-wing corrupt enemedia playing favorites with this case and choosing to indoctrinate their dumbass viewers with so many lies about that teenage tramp who was destined to die for being such a thug!

And that female Florida prosecutor is such a lunatic! She needs to be in a mental institution immediately!

God bless that all-woman jury, they saved our very reputation as a fair and balanced country, regardless of all the dirty lies from NBC, MSNBC, CNN, ABC, CBS, and all the newspooper lies printed daily for months, a POX on you all!

Here´s hoping that they leave you alone, George Zimmerman, and you can resume your everyday life without being so repeatedly attacked any more.

As is typical of the black community at large, NO ONE is taking responsibility for the fact that Trayvon was well on his way to being arrested. Sybina, the Mother, abandoned Trayvon when Tracy, the Dad, took up with another woman. Sybrina already had a child from a previous relationship. Dad´s new wife had 2 daughters by a previous relationship, but she raised Trayvon apparently very well for 12+ years. Then Dad leaves Wife #2 for "fiance" and ships Trayvon back to Sybrina in Miami, away from the only "real" Mother he has known. Dad has yet another child with fiance. Sybrina ships Trayvon back to Dad and the new main squeeze when he gets suspended from school for having burglary tools and stolen jewelry in his back pack at school. Suspended AGAIN. Trayvon post pictures of his junior thug status including a gold grill in his mouth, marijuana plants, a handgun, him "inhaling", and the stolen jewelery. And the black community has the nerve to say a "defenseless child" was gunned down by a crazed wanna-be cop just out scoutin´ to kill a black child. It is absolutely beyond bizarre that the black community cannot see that they are reaping what they have sown. But no, it is the white man´s fault.

I haven´t read through the posts, so if I´m repeating someone else´s observation, I am sorry. Does anyone else believe, as I do, that both sides knew the verdict before it was read? Martin´s parents were not in the courtroom and the lack of reaction on the Zimmerman side of the table was just too obvious. Bailiffs can be very good at leaking the verdict when possible.

Re #47, the problem with the Stand Your Ground law is that it is about choosing to stand your ground or retreating.

George Zimmerman was unable to retreat, pinned to the ground and in fear for his life as his head was repeatedly bashed into the concrete sidewalk.

It was classic self-defense.

#78 pretty well sums up what happened with Trayvon. He was a throwaway kid with two irresponsible parents (Geraldo notwithstanding). But that is no excuse for circling and lying in wait to attack a man rather then just going home.

According to Rachel he HAD reached home. Then the line went dead for four long minutes. We know the rest. Anyone who has seen the distance from his Sanford "home" (Brandi´s) and the place where he assaulted George know that he travelled back intending to teach the cracka a lesson.

Re #79, go and read around. The Skittles, like some other fruit flavored candie, are an essential ingredient - along with watermelon drink - of a drug concoction known as Lean. The active ingredient is DXM or Trayvon´s preferred codeine, found in cough syrup.

Re #80, anyone who watched the trial knew that the prosecution had no case. No theory. No evidence to support the charge of 2nd degree homicide. The defense used prosecution witnesses to prove that George was innocent. (In some countries "innocent" is another possibility. We stop at "not guilty".)

The Martins´ attorneys apparently advised them to go home to Miami "so that they could go to church" today. Being lawyers, they may have reasonably surmised that the case was lost.

The Zimmermans were in shock. And a young man was still dead. It would have been classless to celebrate, and they are pretty classy folks.

At least now in this country if you are a women or a man being attacked by a African American or what ever term they are using to keep themselves separate from the rest of the citizens of American. We still have the right to defend ourselves. It is obvious to me if Zimmerman would have been found guilty and a white person was attacked by a African American they would have to either run or just stand and let themselves be beat up or raped.

Climate change is damaging fish brains and

researchers warn

Fish are losing their survival instinct as the world´s oceans become more acidic because of climate change, researchers have claimed. The study confirms laboratory experiments showing that the behavior of reef fishes can be seriously affected by increased carbon dioxide concentrations in the ocean. Carbon dioxide released into the atmosphere is absorbed into ocean waters, where it dissolves and lowers the pH of the water. The new study is the first to analyze the sensory impairment of fish from CO2 seeps, where pH is similar to what climate models forecast for surface waters by the turn of the century. ´These results verify our laboratory

White babies just 15 months old show racial

Toddlers show racial bias when picking playmates, a study reveals. They also take account of how fairly others behave. Researchers tested the reaction of white 15-month-olds as toys were distributed. Two white adults divided the toys, one equally and the other unequally. Seventy per cent of the toddlers chose to play with the researcher who distributed the toys fairly. But in a second test, when one researcher favoured a white recipient over an Asian one, they picked the ‘fair’ researcher less often, the journal Frontiers in Psychology reports. And the babies are more likely to help those who share the same ethnicity, which is known as

WASHINGTON - Americans increasingly think Democrats have a better plan for healthcare than Republicans, according to a Reuters/Ipsos poll conducted after the White House announced that more people than expected had signed up for the "Obamacare" health plan. Nearly one-third of respondents in the online survey released on Tuesday said they prefer Democrats´ plan, policy or approach to healthcare, compared to just 18 percent for Republicans. This marks both an uptick in support for Democrats and a slide for Republicans since a similar poll in February.

That fits nicely with Democrats´ objectives, but not with our nation´s founding principles. Andrew Jackson, who in 1835 succeeded in paying off the national debt, was famous for considering debt slavery. The current fiscal path the U.S. is on does indeed lead to slavery, but the slave masters of the future will be well-heeled politicians and federal bureaucrats, not plantation owners. The CBO´s new budget projections contain an eerie warning that we are on path from today´s already unfathomable $17.7 trillion in gross

Failure: ObamaCare fans are cheering the latest Congressional Budget Office report, which appears to show that it will cost less and cover more people than expected. But that´s true only if you ignore reality. We don´t always agree with the CBO, but we have long respected it as a credible source of budget numbers. Sure, its projections almost never turn out to be true. But simply too many variables are at play for anyone to guess such things perfectly, and it provides a more or less independent source of information on highly charged, partisan issues. Plus, its findings have a tendency to upset

Taxes: In his first campaign, President Obama pledged to cut taxes for all but the very rich. Now that another tax day has come and gone, it should be very clear that his pledge was just another in a long line of falsehoods. ´I can make a firm pledge," then-candidate Barack Obama said while campaigning back in 2008. "Under my plan no family making less than $250,000 a year will see any form of tax increase. Not your income tax, not your payroll tax, not your capital gains taxes, not any of your taxes." Now, almost six years after those comments, it´s

Harry Reid: The Desert
Fox Of Corruption

Corruption: The standoff in the Nevada desert wasn´t about a desert tortoise or a rancher´s failure to pay grazing fees. It was about the state´s senior senator again enriching himself and his family at public expense. Sunlight is said to be the best disinfectant, and the end, at least temporarily, to the Bureau of Land Management´s armed standoff with Cliven Bundy may be due in part to the exposure given to Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid´s role in the attempt to confiscate Bundy´s cattle and shut down his ranch. "A tortoise isn´t the reason why BLM is harassing a 67-year-old rancher; they

WASHINGTON -- Latinos and immigration activists are warning of political peril for President Barack Obama and Democrats in the fall election unless the president acts boldly and soon to curb deportations and allow more immigrants to remain legally in the U.S. Many activists say Obama has been slow to grasp the emotions building within the Latino community as deportations near the 2 million mark for his administration and hopes for immigration legislation fade. With House Republicans unlikely to act on an overhaul, executive action by Obama is increasingly the activists´ only hope. "There is tremendous anger among core constituencies of the president

India´s Supreme Court has created an official third sex for its transgender eunuchs and announced they will have a quota of government jobs and college places to help them overcome discrimination. The decision was met with jubilation by transgender charities who said it was a milestone in their fight against marginalisation in Indian society. "We are elated and thankful to the court," said Kalki Subramanium, a leading transgender rights activist. "The decision has come after a century of suppression and marginalisation by the legal and social systems. "This verdict is certainly landmark and a new beginning. The biggest challenge is the social recognition.

Neurosurgeon Ben Carson says the White House wanted him to apologize for “offending” President Obama after he famously delivered a conservative message at the National Prayer Breakfast last year. Carson, the former director of pediatric neurosurgery at Johns Hopkins Hospital, recalls the events surrounding his 2013 speech in his new book, One Nation: What We Can All Do To Save America’s Future. The Daily Caller obtained an advance copy of the book, which is set for release May 20. “He did not appear to be hostile or angry,” Carson writes of Obama, “but within a matter of minutes after the conclusion of

President Obama inspired a generation of young people to support his historic election in 2008. And in 2012, despite the struggles of his first term, Mr. Obama still managed to win the support of a full 60% of voters age 18-29. But the man who once dreamed of being a transformative leader in the Reagan mold is inspiring few of those young people to follow his lead. "For all the talk about the movement that elected Mr. Obama, the more notable movement of Obama supporters has been away from politics. It appears that few of the young people who voted

On Saturday, I wrote about the standoff at Bundy Ranch. That post drew a remarkable amount of traffic, even though, as I wrote then, I had not quite decided what to make of the story. Since then, I have continued to study the facts and have drawn some conclusions. Here they are. First, it must be admitted that legally, Bundy doesn’t have a leg to stand on. The Bureau of Land Management has been charging him grazing fees since the early 1990s, which he has refused to pay. Further, BLM has issued orders limiting the area on which Bundy’s cows can

Chelsea Clinton says when people ask her these days whether she wants to go into politics, her answer isn’t an automatic “no.” The 34-year-old former first daughter told Fast Company in an interview published Monday, “for so long the answer was just a visceral no. Not because I had made any conscientious, deliberate decision, but since people had been asking for as long as literally I could remember, it was no." Now, the only child of former President Clinton and former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton explains, "I live in a city and a state and a country where I

Although the Civil Rights Act, the landmark legislation which just reached its 50th anniversary, made great strides in desegregating the economy, economic discrimination is still widespread, and anti-discrimination legislation alone can never rectify the economic damage inflicted upon blacks by slavery and our Jim Crow apartheid regime. The Civil Rights Act was a mild reform, all things considered, but one conservatives fought with vigor and one many conservatives are still bitter about to this day. When the Civil Rights Act passed in 1964, the primary purpose was to root out discrimination in public accommodations (like hotels and movie theaters)

Western Washington University sent a questionnaire to students asking them for advice on how the administration could succeed at making sure that in future years, “we are not as white as we are today.” The question notes that WWU’s racial make up does not perfectly reflect the nation at large, and asks students to consider strategies that other universities have used to focus on skin color as the paramount indicator of a student-applicant’s worth. The president of WWU has stated that his explicit goal is to reduce the white population on campus, according to Campus Reform. “I’ve said before and I’ll say it

Hank Aaron’s recent comments about the need for America to realize that racism is still very much alive and thriving — only now due to those who wear “neckties and starched shirts” rather than KKK hoods — has sparked an angry backlash and many fans are turning the tables, calling the baseball legend himself a racist. “Hank Aaron is a s*****g piece of [expletive] [racial slur],” one man said in an email to the Atlanta Braves’ front office, one of the teams Mr. Aaron used to play for, CBS News reported. “My old man instilled in my mind from a

Funny question in the headline, yes? But since President Obama worries more about the threat of terrorists´ improvised nuclear device going off in a major American city than anything Russia can throw at us, I was wondering if the government had deigned to share with us citizens any tips for, you know, surviving something their own intelligence points to as the likeliest unlikely Black Swan event. Well, no. And yes. No — very few people in Washington, D.C., who work for the government have any idea what they would do if a 10-kiloton nuclear device exploded at the intersection of 16th and K

Megyn Kelly’s "Kelly File" is a great news show. She’s incisive, informed and customarily handles the toughest guest with aplomb. But her lengthy interview of Facebook C.O.O. Sheryl Sandberg about her second book in the Lean In series Lean In: For Graduates was a head shaker. Amazing that she of all people allowed Sandberg to restring the same old, same old, shamed, and shopworn feminist myths about women and girls and then jangle it in front of her viewing audience like something new out of the box. Indeed Kelly all but genuflected in front of this woman. Kept her on thru

When President Obama needed a preacher to fulfill the closing prayer duties at the annual White House Easter Prayer Breakfast, he turned to none other than the Episcopal Church’s first openly gay bishop — who said he was as shocked as anyone at the appointment. The Right Rev. Gene Robinson said in a tweet, accompanied by a photo of Mr. Obama behind a podium at the event: “POTUS ‘preaches’ at the Easter prayer breakfast. Then, out of the blue, asks ME to close with prayer. OMG!” Newsmax said he also emphasized that the words he chose to close the breakfast

A Russian fighter jet made multiple, close-range passes near an American warship in the Black Sea for more than 90 minutes Saturday amid escalating tensions in the region, a U.S. military official said Monday. In the first public account of the incident, the official said the Russian Fencer flew within 1,000 yards of the USS Donald Cook, a Navy destroyer, at about 500 feet above sea level. Ship commanders considered the actions provocative and inconsistent with international agreements, prompting the ship to issue several radio queries and warnings. The fighter appeared to be unarmed and never was in danger of
