While the Obama Justice Department mounts a legal challenge against Florida for purging ineligible voters from its rolls, a television news station broadcasts an unbelievable segment that proves non U.S. citizens living in the Sunshine State vote regularly in elections.
The investigative piece was aired this week by an NBC affiliate in southwest Florida that actually tracked down and interviewed non U.S. citizens who are registered to vote and have cast ballots in numerous elections. The segment focused on Lee County, which has a population of about 620,000 and Collier County with a population of around 322,000. The reporter spent about two months digging around the voter rolls in the two counties and the discoveries are dumbfounding.
In that short time, more than 100 people registered to vote in those two areas were proven to be ineligible by the reporter. A Cape Coral woman, eligible to vote in elections, was tracked down through jury excusal forms that verify she’s not a U.S. citizen. A Naples woman, who is not a U.S. citizen either, voted six times in 11 years without being detected by authorities. A Jamaican man is also registered to vote though he’s not eligible. The reporter obtained his 2007 voter registration form, which shows the Jamaican man claims to be a U.S. citizen. Problem is, no one bothers checking to see if applicants are being truthful.
The Dems will try and dismiss this but the fact is Jolly was severely outspent by the Democrats and Obama won the district in 2012.
Via NBC News:
Republican David Jolly was declared the winner Tuesday of a closely watched Florida Congressional race both parties viewed as testing grounds to hone strategies for the 2014 midterm elections.
Jolly defeated Democrat Alex Sink in a tight race to fill the Tampa Bay-area seat of the late GOP Rep. Bill Young, according to the Associated Press.
The pricey campaign was waged heavily on President Barack Obama’s healthcare overhaul. Sink, who ran for governor of the Sunshine State in 2010, fought back a litany of attacks for her support of Obamacare in the first Congressional election since the law’s troubled rollout last fall. Jolly was portrayed as a former lobbyist beholden to special interests and whose calls for repeal of the health care law would move the country backward.
The implications of the race resulted in involvement from political heavyweights on both sides. Former President Bill Clinton recorded a phone call for Sink down the final stretch of the campaign, and former Republican vice presidential candidate Paul Ryan appeared on a conference call for Jolly.
Republicans have said a Jolly victory in the swing district would be a sign of good things to come in November midterms.
Obama narrowly won the district during his 2012 campaign and Sink carried it during her 2010 run in the state. But Young kept the seat in GOP hands during his more than four decades in Congress.
A 12-year-old girl is being threatened with expulsion from school for refusing to cut her natural afro hair.
Vanessa VanDyke, who is a student at Orlando’s Faith Christian Academy in Florida, had been suffering taunts over her hairstyle from fellow students.
But her mother, Sabrina Kent, says that when she complained about the issue, school administrators took similar aim and told Vanessa that her hair violated school dress codes for being a ‘distraction.’
Vanessa says that she was given one week to decide if she wanted to cut her hair, and if not, she would have to leave the school.
She feels that her hair is part of her identity and for that reason, does not plan to change it.
‘It says that I’m unique,’ Vanessa told Click Orlando. ‘First of all, it’s puffy and I like it that way. I know people will tease me about it because it’s not straight. I don’t want to fit in,’ she continued.
Schools are liberal havens and liberals HATE individualism, as Vanessa is finding out. If her hair is a violation of a dress code, one that is so severe she faces expulsion, why was she not told to change it BEFORE she reported the bullying? I hope her mother hires lawyer and sues these miscreants until they heads fall off.
In 1987 Florida passed concealed carry legislation, and the Left predicted Wild West shootouts and streets running with blood. That has not happened, but violent crime has been reduced. In 1995, I moved here to Texas, and the debate over concealed carry was raging, with the same predictions of blood in the streets, etc. Well, again, those anti self-defense zealots were wrong, as they have been in Georgia, Arizona, and many other states that allow concealed carry. Bob Owens reports today that two years after Wisconsin passed their concealed carry law, the gun grabbers are still wrong
Two years after 200,000 Cheeseheads get concealed carry, EVERYONE in Wisconsin is dead, just as gun control cultists predicted.
November 1 marks the second anniversary of the passing of the once high profile – and still highly contentious – Wisconsin concealed carry law, with more than 200,000 permits issued in that time. Just as noteworthy are the 5,800 permit applications that were denied for various reasons. The permit fee has also dropped to $40, down from $50 when Wisconsin became the 49th state to allow concealed carry two years ago.
In every state where “shall issue” concealed carry has been implemented over the past 20+ years, gun control fanatics have warned that every minor conflict and fender bender will turn into a combination of the OK Corral and the St. Valentine’s Day Massacre.
The fanatics, of course, give not the first damn about public safety, their twisted Collectivist minds just cannot tolerate armed Americans defending themselves. If it is one thing a Collectivist loathes, it is Individual liberty. These miscreants will only be sated when we are all wards of the State, and totally dependent on the government for everything, especially protection from criminals
I was going to title this post Dear, Alan Grayson, go Fuck Yourself, but every time I look at Grayson, I think knuckle-dragger so let me compromise by saying Fuck You you Knuckle-dragging buffoon
Florida Democratic Rep. Alan Grayson doubled down his extremely provocative rhetoric on Wednesday, in the days after his campaign sent out a fundraising email with an image likening the tea party to the Klan that showed two Klansmen in the background with a burning cross used as the “t” in “tea party.”
However, Grayson took his tea party-KKK comparison another step further and said the tea party engaged in hate speech, racism, discrimination, bigotry and in some case even threats of violence.
“I think the tea party should expel those members who engage in hate speech,” Grayson said to an unidentified reporter with Orlando ABC affiliate WFTV. “So many members of the tea party have engaged in hate speech against the president, against the first lady, against numerous members of the Congress and against me. And we could give you examples of that.”
See, Grayson says he could give examples, but will not. Wanna take a stab as to why he will not give examples? Because he cannot. Grayson is a morally vacuous intellectual lightweight. All he has is hateful rhetoric and false claims of RAAAAACISM.
Exit question, if Grayson thinks “hate speech” which is Liberal code for I cannot win this debate intellectually so I am going to smear my opponent, is grounds for being expelled from the Tea Party then maybe the Democratic party should expel him. Hopefully the voters will take that step next year.
For years Auburn and Florida played every October, it was a great rivalry, so during those games, I always hated that other team that wears Blue and Orange. I would even scream “War Chicken” to mock Auburn fans. But following the rules of the SEC, Team First, Conference Second, Game Third, I have always Pulled for Auburn in bowl games, and out of conference games. But, on this story, I am a enthusiastic supporter of Auburn! So is Stacy McCain, and he is a Bama fan!
. . . but she almost didn’t have a name, because if not for a woman’s courageous decision, she never even would have had a life:
Auburn University selected its 100th Miss Homecoming in Molly Anne Dutton this weekend. . . .
The 22-year-old’s biological mother was faced with an extremely difficult situation. The victim of a sexual assault, the young woman became pregnant with Dutton and was given an ultimatum by her husband: Either abort the baby or get a divorce.
She chose to keep the baby, leading to a “ridiculously inspirational life story” for her daughter. Rather than aborting, she carried the baby to term and worked with Lifeline Children’s Services, a Christian adoption group in Birmingham, Ala., to ensure that the baby girl was given a good life.
Go read the whole amazing story and try not to cry too much.
God Bless Molly, and her mother for inspiring us all. Love that smile Molly!
Lead Florida Obamacare Navigator Anne Packham has retracted earlier claims that Floridians must provide their credit score to apply for health insurance, WKMG reports:
A day after telling Local 6 that anyone signing up for the Affordable Care Act had to provide their credit score, the lead navigator in Florida said she was wrong.
Anne Packham, one of many people licensed by the state to help people navigate the government’s website, said on Tuesday that the credit check was put in place so providers can make an educated decision about who to insure.
After receiving numerous emails about the story, Local 6 contacted Packham on Wednesday, and she said her statement was incorrect, adding that users do not need their credit scores to apply for the Affordable Care Act.
Local 6 is investigating how the person in charge of providing information about the Affordable Care Act could make such an error.
The embarrassing flap raises further serious questions about the capability of Obamacare navigators to provide accurate and trustworthy information about healthcare reform.
The “navigators” have access to sensitive personal data such as social security numbers and income.
On Tuesday, Packham incorrectly told WKMG that applicants must provide their credit score to apply for Obamacare:
Many people signing up for health care in Florida through the Affordable Care Act have been shocked when they have to give proof of their credit score before they finish the process.
Anne Packham, one of many people licensed by the state to help people navigate the government’s website, said on Tuesday that the credit check occurs so providers can make an educated decision about who to insure.
Participants with low credit scores could end up paying higher premiums, according to Packham, who said that ultimately the insurance company makes the call.
It is unclear if any individuals have unnecessarily provided their credit score to Ms. Packham or other navigators in Florida.
Insurance agents nationwide have expressed consternation about the qualifications of the newly hired part-time Obamacare workers:
And insane is the only word I can apply to the state of anti-gun zealotry in our schools

Why do Conservatives not stand up to thugs and bullies? Of course some do, but, why do we, or too many of us allow this kind of threat?
Now, I do not know who was there, and who that prick is talking to. Likely not to any male. But, again, I do not understand someone NOT sticking their finger in this punk’s face, and telling him to go blank himself. I am not advocating violence here, I am not, but I am suggesting taking a clear stand against this type of threat. Allow me to give you a example. I was born and raised in Tampa, and in the mid 1990′s I went to some County Commission meetings to fight against a group of people trying to change the County Seal because it contained a flag they were offended by, actually, the seal contained a flag, or other form of representation of every government that ever ruled over Florida, so it was very historical.
After one such meeting, I and some folks also protesting the change were accosted, verbally, by a loud mouth looking to instigate a violent incident. An incident that his group would, of course video tape in an attempt to blacklist those opposed to the change as violent racists. He focused on an older gentleman, who was much smaller than him. He berated him with taunts, slurs, and threats until some younger, much bigger guy, namely me, stepped in front of the man he was accosting, and got in the thugs face. In softly spoken but not so polite language, I told him if he wanted a fight then throw the first punch, or shut the Hell up and go away. I was certainly not stupid, and would never throw that first punch but I made it clear that if he REALLY wanted to start a fight that I would defend myself. Oddly enough, he backed down very quickly. Perhaps this is an approach more Conservatives should take? Any thoughts?
Via Moonbattery who exposes this wimpy, bottom feeding, race baiter
One reason the epidemic of black-on-white violence has been getting out of control is that the leftists who control the information establishment have exploited George Zimmerman’s act of justifiable homicide to whip up a false sense of injustice. Months after it was settled, agitprop provocateurs are still milking it, pushing their cultural Marxist propaganda to ever more inflammatory extremes of hyperbole:
An email sent to students by a University of Maryland official that cites the Trayvon Martin shooting as evidence “it is legal to hunt down and kill American children in Florida” is being blasted as the latest evidence of a left-wing bias on campus.
The email, from William Dorland, director of the school’s Honors College, starts by welcoming students back to campus, but then quickly veers into politics.
“This year, we learned that it is legal to hunt down and kill American children in Florida,” it reads, in a reference to the trial of George Zimmerman, who was cleared of all charges in the fatal shooting of 17-year-old Trayvon Martin. The email went out to all students in the Honors College.
This statement was part of an effort to promote an appearance at Maryland by the despicable Julian Bond, who Dave Blount rightfully labels a race arsonist.
I have said before that the rash of Black on White violence will, eventually lead to an instance where the intended target has a concealed carry permit. And, when that target refuses to be a victim, and defends themselves watch the Left go into hyper attack mode against the NRA, stand your ground, self-defense, concealed carry permit holders, etc.
Doug Hagin accused me of gratuitously invoking “Roll, Tide” yesterday when I pointed out that tuition at Hamilton College in Clinton, N.Y., is $45,620 a year, compared to $9,450 a year for in-state students ($23,950 for out-of-state) at the University of Alabama. My point was, why would anyone spend all that money to attend a snooty liberal arts college up north, when they could save money by attending the finest school in Dixie with the finest football team in the world?
On this I agree, Alabama is the beast of college football, for now, until Florida reclaims its rightful place, but of course Florida and Alabama are members of the elite SEC, and Hamilton is a member of some conference I suppose, I mean, honestly, who loses to Amherst? Apparently snooty schools where the girls are, well………..
In addition to bad weather, a sorry football team — Hamilton lost to 23-7 to Amherst – and not knowing the difference between segregation and “diversity,” it appears that Hamilton College’s problems also include coeds who don’t know how to have orgasms:
A small, prestigious liberal arts school in New York is set to host and fund a workshop on orgasms for undergrads on Monday.
Hamilton College will host an orgasm workshop on Monday.
The workshop, hosted by Hamilton College’s Womyn’s Center, will teach “everything from multiple orgasms to that mysterious G-spot,” according to its official description, and is open to male and female students.
“Whether you want to learn how to have your first orgasm, how to have better ones, or how to help your girlfriend, Maggie and Marshall cover it all,” [says] the event description on the Womyn’s Center’s Facebook page.
“Maggie and Marshall,” Marshall Miller and Maggie Keenan-Bolger, are the two “sex educators” who teach the workshop.
The exact price that the school paid for the workshop is unknown, however, the University of Minnesota, Twin Cities, paid $3,406 to host the same workshop earlier this year. . . .
The workshop is put on by Sex Discussed Here!, an organization that teaches sex education to college students.
So, my question is why would RS McCain think we could help these girls? Maybe because real men, are, apparently in short supply at Hamilton
So maybe the problem is the inferior quality of male students at Hamilton.
Face it, ladies: Those nerdy wimps with straight-A averages don’t necessarily get your juices flowing and, if we can use the anemic record of Hamilton’s football team as a barometer of the general manliness of your student body . . . Well, there’s your problem, see?
Y’all head on down to Tuscaloosa, they’ll fix you right up.

It was not the prettiest performance, and the offense should have put up more points, but, overall I will gladly take a dominating win over a good team
GAINESVILLE, Fla. – Mack Brown had tears in eyes before the game and a smile on his face after.
In between, he ran for 112 yards and two touchdowns — and vomited on the sideline.
Not a bad start for Brown or No. 10 Florida.
Brown’s career day, Jeff Driskel‘s efficiency and a dominant defense carried the Gators to a 24-6 win over Toledo in the teams’ season opener Saturday.
The Gators controlled both lines of scrimmage, opening holes for Brown and keeping steady pressure on Toledo’s experienced offense. It was exactly the style of play Florida has become known for under Muschamp. No flashiness. Few highlight-reel plays. But a win in the end.
It was Florida’s 24th consecutive season-opening victory, the second-longest active streak in the country. Only Nebraska (27) has a longer current run.
Up next a trip to Miami to play the Canes
RS McCain is still on the trail of the
queen of illegal Lesbian sex, ah victim of Homophobia Kaitlyn Hunt. Hunt is 18, and had sex with a 14-year-old girl. Once busted for that she refused a plea deal and chose to play the “Victim of Homophobia Card”. Unfortunately for Kaitlyn, the victim pimping act is not working out.Mainly because Kaitlyn BROKE THE LAW! See, it really does not matter that Kaitlyn is Lesbian, it matters that she went after jail bait with a dildo, and things went downhill from there.
Once you knew the facts, you recognized that the “Free Kate” argument was constructed entirely of rationalizations and evasions — minimizing, justifying, blame-shifting — and, if all those evasions failed, claiming that it is OK, because everybody does it:
Hunt’s parents believe their daughter is being singled out because she’s in a lesbian relationship.
“I could ramble off 10, 20 other relationship(s) right now at the same high school that are freshman and senior; 14 and 18; and they’re not being prosecuted,” Hunt-Smith said.
This is just dishonest. She claims to know about “relationships” that aren’t being prosecuted, but are 14-year-olds in Indian River County routinelyscrewing around with adults? Is this community such a pit of moral depravity that parents of high-school freshmen do not object to their 14-year-olds doing this? Give me a break.
These aren’t arguments. These are excuses.
And so now the scofflaw hoodlums are cornered like rats:
A plea bargain offered to accused sex offender Kaitlyn Hunt has been withdrawn after Florida prosecutors say the 19-year-old lesbian violated a judge’s order not to have contact with her underage victim. WPEC-TV reported that Hunt could be arrested today, and that the 19-year-old former cheerleader’s mother Kelley Hunt Smith may also face charges in connection with the case.
Hunt was a senior at Sebastian River High School when she was arrested in February on charges that she had sex with a 14-year-old freshman girl who was a basketball teammate. Hunt was charged with two felonies; the age of consent in Florida is 16. Last week, state attorney Bruce Colton’s office filed a complaint that Hunt, who has been free on $5,000 bond awaiting trial, violated the no-contact order that was a condition of her pretrial release. . . .
A hearing on the prosecutor’s complaint has been scheduled for Tuesday, but Scott T. Smith of Palm Beach CBS affiliate WPEC-TV reported Monday “Hunt faces being returned to jail as soon as today, and her mom may also face charges.” . . .
Violating the no-contact order could mean that not only will Hunt have to wait in jail until her case goes to trial, but she and her mother could also face charges of contempt of court and obstruction of justice. . . .
This is simple. People have used the “Victim Card” to excuse bad behavior way too much in America, so much so it is maxed out. If you want to say that the age of consent in Florida ought to be 15, or 14 in Florida rather than 16, fine. I think that 16 is about the right age, but Florida can lower that if the voters think it appropriate. But playing the oppressed Lesbian? The fact is many boys get charged for messing with jail bait. Kaitlyn Hunt needs to stop screaming Homophobia and accept that she is being treated equally under Florida law. And isn’t that what Gay activists want? Equality?
UPDATE! Linked at The Other McCain, where we learn that Kaitlyn is back in jail
Evidently, her bond has been revoked, or there are new charges, but here’s the booking record from the Indian River County Sheriff’s Office, complete with a new mug shot, and the accused sex offender’s mother says Kaitlyn Hunt turned herself in, blaming the violation of her bond on the victim:
“Poor Kaitlyn can’t help herself! She was perfectly innocent and normal until that irresistibly hot underage girl cast her voodoo spell!”
Maybe if her trashy parents would stop throwing pity parties for their brats and instead teach them to respect the law . . .
Then they scream HOMOPHOBIA! The Other McCain has some updates on the Kaitlyn Hunt, Hunt as in hunting 14-year-old girls, the Obsessive Lesbian Predator. Here is the key part
Maybe that seems crazy to you. You may say, “But this girl is willing and eager to have sex at 14 or 15, why criminalize this guy, only four or five years older than her, for giving her what she wants?”
The answer is that this is a minor dependent upon, and under the authority of, her parents, who have a duty to supervise her behavior — to make sure she brushes her teeth and does her homework and looks both ways before crossing the street — for her own good. And if the parents of 14-year-old Heather Hotpants don’t want their daughter taking a ride on the one-eyed love monster with 19-year-old Billy the Boner, they are empowered by law to prevent it.
Maybe you think this kind of parental empowerment is a bad thing, but if you don’t have a teenage daughter, well, shut the hell up.
Parents have duties and parents have rights, and if we don’t want total sexual anarchy — horny hoodlums cruising the middle-school parking lot in search of some easy action — we’d better by God stand on the side of parents trying to protect their daughters.
Every year — every month, every week — guys are charged in Florida with violating this law. Most of the time you never hear about it, because it’s just a two-paragraph item in the cops-and-courts column of the local newspaper. The prosecutor offers the perp a plea bargain, the perp takes the deal, end of story.
This didn’t happen in the Kaitlyn Hunt case simply because her parents believed they could rally support on her behalf by claiming that Kate was a victim of homophobia, and so they launched the “Free Kate” campaign, fooled a lot of people into thinking that this was a case about “discrimination,” and rejected the plea bargain.
To such a gambit we must answer: Damn you, and damn your “rights.”
Equality has a meaning, and Gay rights advocates seem not to like actual equality as much as they desire special rights. Special as in an 18 year-old Lesbian can get away with what an 18-year-old straight guy can’t get away with. Folks that IS NOT equality, and enforcing laws equally is not Homophobia. I will let Stacy McCain sum this very simple argument up
What first drew my attention to this case was a column at NewsBusters by Matthew Philbin in which he sagely observed that Kaitlyn Hunt and her supporters are trying to make homosexuality a “Get Out of Jail Free” card for statutory rape. But if you cannot prosecute an 18-year-old lesbian for playing Spin the Dildo with a 14-year-old girl, by the same token you cannot punish 18-year-old gay guys who want to play naked leapfrog with 14-year-old boys, nor could any of the more commonplace heterosexual statutory rapes be punished.
Accused sex offender Kaitlyn Hunt will appear in a Florida courtroom Tuesday for a hearing on charges that she violated terms of her pretrial release by contacting the underage girl with whom she is accused of having an illegal lesbian affair. In a motion filed Thursday in Indian River County, prosecutors said Hunt, 19, sent “lewd” photos and a pornographic video of herself masturbating to the younger girl. . . .
Hunt has remained free on $5,000 bond since her arrest, but at a hearing scheduled for Tuesday in Vero Beach, prosecutors will present evidence to Circuit Court Judge Robert Pegg that Hunt has violated terms of her release. Prosecutors from state attorney Bruce Colton‘s office are expected to argue that Hunt’s bond should be revoked and she should be jailed until her trial, which had been scheduled for September, but has since been postponed. . . .
[Prosecutors' account of how Hunt violated the no-contact order] if proved true in court, shows that Hunt is obsessed with her victim, that she is exhibiting predatory behavior, and that she is attempting to obstruct justice by pressuring her victim into silence.
Of course the Left has tried to make Kaitlyn Hunt into a victim because she is a Lesbian. And Lesbians cannot be held accountable I guess.
Middle and high school students in San Diego, California will be encouraged to vent their frustration that the world lacks justice when they return to school and participate in the “Trayvon Martin dialogues” this fall.
The sponsors of San Diego’s Trayvon Martin dialogues, however, believe the resolution of the case has produced in teenagers “feelings of fear, anger, and skepticism that they will live in a just society,” according to The College Fix
The full proposal calls for forum participants to explicitly condemn “stand your ground” laws, which permit citizens to use force to defend themselves in dangerous situations instead of retreating. Florida’s law was erroneously credited with prompting the conflict between Martin and Zimmerman, though the matter never became a significant factor at the trial, since Zimmerman had no option to retreat, according to his official testimony.
Why not call for students to STUDY what these laws actually say, and study the RESULTS of these laws?
The dialogues will “allow students to talk about the world view that prompted George Zimmerman to confront Trayvon Martin,” and “allow students to speak honestly about the ‘Stand Your Ground’ laws that could give one person an unfair advantage over another and the pros and cons of their perceptions,” according to the proposal.
Unfair advantage? Lord we would not want to give any advantage to a law-abiding American threatened by a violent thug now would we? When did Liberal brainwashing become an essential part of education? Stalin would be proud I am sure.
Is it just me, or are these two and their campaign of lies well past tiresome? Sorry, but losing their son does not give them Carte Blanche to spread bald-faced lies in an effort to hamper American’s right to self-defense. Bob Owens sounds pretty fed up with their act too He posts their latest batch of lies from Change.Org
A reader forwarded along this email he got from Change.Org:
Last year, our son Trayvon Martin was stalked, chased down and killed by George Zimmerman, and Zimmerman received no punishment whatsoever. That’s in large part because Florida is one of at least 21 states with some form of ‘Stand Your Ground’ law which enables people like George Zimmerman to claim self-defense.
‘Stand Your Ground’ was never meant to give aggressors the opportunity to get away with murder, but that is what happened when our son Trayvon was killed. After Trayvon’s death, law enforcement used the law as an excuse to refuse to arrest George Zimmerman. Even worse, the jury in the case was instructed to think of what Zimmerman did as self-defense, even though Zimmerman ignored instructions from the police and instigated conflict with our son, who was just trying to get home to his father.
We are shocked and heartbroken by the jury’s decision to allow our son’s killer to go free. Despite our despair, we must honour Trayvon’s legacy by doing all that we can to protect other young people from being targeted, pursued, and senselessly murdered.
We started a petition on Change.org calling on 21 governors whose states have some form of ‘Stand Your Ground’ laws to review those laws and amend them so that people who instigate conflicts — people like George Zimmerman — won’t be able to use these laws to get away with murder.
We are not the only ones calling for ‘Stand Your Ground’ laws to be reviewed. President Obama spoke out on the need for review, and prominent Republicans like Senator John McCain havejoined him. This is not a Democrat or Republican issue, it’s not ‘black’ or ‘white’ issue, it’s a wrong and right issue.
This is a matter of making sure that no other family will ever have to go through what we have been through. No parents should ever have to know what it feels like to watch your child’s killer walk free.
Our hearts broke on the night of February 26, 2012 when George Zimmerman killed our son — and we were stunned and devastated when the police refused to arrest Zimmerman. We petitioned for Zimmerman’s arrest on Change.org, and after more than 2 million people joined our call, Zimmerman was charged with our son’s murder. We felt so much closer to justice for Trayvon, and so grateful for the support of those who signed our petition.
But on July 13, 2013, our hearts broke again when the jury set Zimmerman free. Our hearts broke because it is so hard to accept that we can’t protect Trayvon anymore. But we can fight to make sure that this never happens again.
We want to say thank you to all of you who have stood up for our son. Because of all your efforts, Trayvon’s life is celebrated all over the world. Please continue to stand with us as we fight to ensure that his legacy is to leave behind a safer and more peaceful world for all our sons and daughters.
Tracy Martin and Sybrina Fulton
Wow, how many lies can they pack into a few paragraphs? And how much emotional appeal, sans any facts of course, because, frankly the facts pointed to their son being the aggressor, and not Zimmerman. But, I know, I, and everyone else is supposed to stay silent, and not dare criticize them because they are grieving parents, who have absolute moral authority right?Not no, but HELL NO! What they are doing is not only wrong, but it is evil. They are actively campaigning to take away the right of self-defense. And, if successful, their will be MORE grieving parents, not fewer.
Bob Owens offers similar thoughts. Is it all about $$$$$?
40 prosecution and 19 defense witnesses painted an entirely different story, of course, which supported George Zimmerman’s story as he told it.
George Zimmerman stalked no-one. If he did, crazed prosecutor Angela Corey would have charged him.
Nor did Zimmerman chase anyone: their multiple-drug-abusing, gun-dealing, street-fighting thug of a son, who enjoyed hitting people, lurked in the dark for four minutes watching George Zimmerman before he went after Zimmerman, a fact undisputed in the case.
Rachel Jeantel confirmed Zimmerman’s story that Trayvon emerged from the darkness behind Zimmerman as the shorter, softer neighborhood watchman was on the way back to his truck, and as Jeantel herself said when speaking with Piers Morgan after the trial, she believes Trayvon not only initiated the confrontation by coming up to Zimmerman from behind, he threw the first punch… and every one after that, despite cries for help from Zimmerman and John Good’s shouting at Trayvon to stop his relentless attack.
The reality that Tracy Martin and Sybrina Fulton know in their hearts is that their son was an attempted murderer, who was only stopped from achieving his goal because the shorter, weaker man had a gun.
“Stand Your Ground” was never brought up in the courtroom during the trial, and Tracy Martin and Sybrina Fulton know why: it wasn’t relevant to the case. It’s impossible to claim you were “standing your ground” when you were ambushed, sucker punched, and mounted, with no way to escape.
Every major claim in their email is a lie.
Apparently Tracy Martin and Sybrina Fulton have discovered that there is some money to be made from the gun control movement. After all, they’ve already “earned” more than $1 million from their victimology tour.
What else would they say for a few dollars more?
Several reasons, first it is critical to the perpetuation of Leftism. Since Leftist theory does not translate well to the real world, Leftists must lie to perpetuate the great lie, that Marxism works. Bob Owens exposes another reason leftists lie. That reason being they can portray Conservatives as hateful, and backwards, until Bloggers like Bob Owens but them
….when I heard about Katie Vyktoriah’s “pink headband” story I jumped on it with both feet.
It was so self-evidently fake, with such poorly-fabricated stereotypical dialogue, that it simply wasn’t plausible for anyone that grasps language and human interaction… which, I suppose is why it was so credulously echoed by the not-so-swift folks on the political left, who were eager to promote the “vicious intolerant Walmart Bubba” meme.
Sadly, Vyktoriah’s fiction writing experiment got away from her, and she is now on suicide watch.
A mommy blogger whose post ‘What happened when my son wore a pink headband to Walmart’ went viral on the Internet last weekend was Baker Acted after making suicidal comments to deputies Monday, according to a Lake County Sheriff’s Office report obtained by the Orlando Sentinel.
On Aug. 2, the blog post, written under the byline Katie Vyktoriah, was published on the Huffington Post website and quickly went viral.
The Sheriff’s Office report identified the blogger as Kathleen Carpenter. In the blog, the author wrote that her two-year-old son had worn a pink headband in a Central Florida Walmart store, and a man approached her and yelled out, “That’s a boy?!” according to the post. Here’s what the author wrote next:
“With no notice, the man stepped forward, grabbed the headband off of Dexter’s head and threw it to the bottom of our shopping cart. He then cuffed Dexter around the side of his head (not hard, but that is not the point) and said with a big laugh, ‘You’ll thank me later, little man!’”
Then according to the post, the man hurled a homophobic epithet at her toddler.
The post was picked up by media all over the Internet, and soon, people posted outraged comments of support for the mother. But there were also comments questioning the validity of her story.
In the post, she wrote that she did not notify the store management or the police about the incident when it occurred.
According to Polk County Sheriff’s Office documents, at about 9:30 p.m. Saturday, the Sheriff’s Office received a call from Carpenter’s home reporting that Carpenter and her son were harassed at Wal-Mart the week before and that after she blogged about the incident, “now they are receiving threats.”
The report on the “harassing/obscene phone calls” was written up by a deputy on Monday. In it, the deputy notes that patrols have been requested in the area for the next two weeks in response to the threats.
In an update on her Facebook page, “A Mother Thing” late Saturday, the woman wrote “The Polk County Sheriff’s Deputy has just left our home, and all information about the original Wal Mart incident and the ongoing harassment has been documented and is being dealt with. I have been advised NOT to say any more about the situation, as the investigation is ongoing, so thank you all for your support, but I am going to be offline for the next while until all of this is resolved.”
No further posts have been written and her “A Mother Thing” blog has been taken down.
According to the Lake County Sheriff’s Office report, the Polk County Sheriff’s Office became aware of Carpenter’s blog post detailing the alleged incident at a Wal-Mart in Clermont. SincePolk County was eventually mentioned specifically in the blog as being the responding agency, a Sheriff’s Office lieutenant requested a deputy go meet with Carpenter.
Another Polk Sheriff’s report states that on Monday at about 9 p.m., a deputy went to Carpenter’s home to “assist” the Lake Sheriff’s office with the battery case, since it had allegedly taken place in Lake County. While deputies were there, Carpenter explained that her two-year-old had been battered at the Wal-Mart. Then, according to the report, she “made statements that met the criteria for a Law Enforcement Baker Act.”
Carpenter told deputies, according to the report, “that the attention obtained by her story and the negative comments and communications to her had become too much stress and she could not handle the situation…anymore,” and was thinking of killing herself.
At that time, she was taken into custody by the Polk deputy under Florida’s Baker Act, which allows law-enforcement to hospitalize people for mental-health evaluation.
If I’m reading this correctly, it appears Vyktoriah lied about the deputies coming to her home Saturday; she had merely called them (so she lied about the events there, too). They came out Monday after hearing her claim they had been there on Saturday, and that’s when she said things that caused the men in the white coats to come out and haul her off to the loony bin.
I pity Vyktoriah. She’s a sad and fragile creature that has to fabricate realities because her reality-based community is just that: reality-based (“-based” concedes it is not actually reality, but a poor facsimile thereof). She’s just the latest Jayson Blair, Stephen Glass, Scott Beauchamp, etc, who has authored a fantasy world when the progressive fantasyland doesn’t match up with what they think it should resemble.
See, like I said, when the facts do not match their feelings, Leftists retreat to their “special place” where feelings trump reality. The trouble with lying, of course, is that one lie usually requires future lies, and well, that does not end well. Once the police became involved, this woman had to either fess up, or keep lying, and well, she went with the let me just keep lying approach. I wonder if that strategy led her to play the “I am thinking of killing myself” card, thinking it would garner more sympathy. That is never a good one to play around police. When that card is played, they have to play the “OK your ass is going to be Baker Acted” card. See Libs, see where relying on lies gets you? Sure Huffington Post jumped all over this, because it fits their agenda, so the strategy of making up stories about evil Conservatives worked initially, but the truth eventually came out, as it always does.
What a truly vile human being he is. It befuddles me that anyone could take him seriously
TALLAHASSEE, Fla. — Florida Gov. Rick Scott on Wednesday demanded an apology from longtime civil rights activist Jesse Jackson for comparing the state’s struggle with the Trayvon Martin case to the civil rights clashes with police during the 1960s in Selma, Ala.
Jackson spent the night with protesters upset that George Zimmerman was found not guilty of second-degree murder in the shooting death of Martin. They’ve refused to leave the Capitol until Scott calls a special session to have legislators overhaul the state’s self-defense laws.
Jackson called Florida the “Selma of our time” and even compared Scott to former Alabama Gov. George Wallace. While he was governor, Wallace famously stood in the door at the University of Alabama to try to block the entry of two black students.
Scott so far has refused the request and the protest has dragged on for more than two weeks. The protesters have gotten national media attention and won support from celebrities such as entertainer Harry Belafonte and others who have urged people to boycott Florida.
Jackson makes his living by stirring up racial tension and hatred. He is no better than the scumbags in the Klueless Klutz Klan
