Trayvon Martin was apparently a 17 year old undisciplined punk thug, drug dealing, thief and wannabe gangsta ...

Warning: If you fear controversy – skip this post.

What a difference a day makes.

Today many new facts surrounding Trayvon Martin have been discovered thanks to the New Media doing the work the Institutional Lame Stream Legacy Media refuses to do.

In short. This is perhaps the biggest national racial event since Rodney King. It is also shaping up to be the biggest media driven false public story since Richard Jewell. It’s in the process of becoming a watershed event; And it’s almost entirely fake. It’s a tempest in a tea-cup.

Myth America, p83
k
The two major political parties in the United States are largely instruments for keeping an oligarchy of the rich and powerful intact and supporting the ubiquitous propaganda required to obscure this fact. If the "bottom" four-fifths of the population understood what was happening, they would not likely continue to cooperate in supporting rules that concentrate economic power in a power elite.

... Democrats use government to provide more public services than Republicans, but both parties are dedicated to keeping the power ( of the economic system under the control of corporate capitalism, which 7 means the primary power is in the hands of large, increasingly global corporations. This is oligarchy-government by the rich and the economically powerful.

... The fact is, however, welfare to the rich is about three and a half times as large as the welfare to the poor, much of it being corporate welfare. Even the mainstream Time magazine ran a series on corporate welfare in early 1998. Pointing out that "during one of the most robust economic periods in our nation's history, the Federal Government shelled out $125 billion in corporate welfare, equivalent to all the income tax paid by 60 million individuals and families (Bartlett and L Steele 1998, 36-37).
3. In 1950, corporations paid 26.5 percent of the federal government's general revenues. Now they pay about 10.2 percent (Phillips 2002, 149). Payroll taxes in 1950 were 6.9 percent, now they are over 31 percent.

... As PBS accepts more and more advertising from corporate sponsors, it is highly unlikely to broadcast any program that offers a fundamental critique of capitalism.

Elizabeth Warren takes off the gloves

The freshman senator is on a roll, taking on Wall Street at every opportunity

Elizabeth Warren of Massachusetts ran for the Senate as a populist hell-bent on reforming Wall Street. And after starting her tenure as something of a wallflower — much to the consternation of her fans — it appears she's ready to do just that.

Her most recent target was HSBC, which recently settled money laundering charges to the tune of $1.9 billion.



"If you're caught with an ounce of cocaine, the chances are good you're gonna go to jail. If it happens repeatedly, you may go to jail for the rest of your life," Warren said, according to The Associated Press. "But evidently if you launder nearly a billion dollars for drug cartels and violate our international sanctions, your company pays a fine and you go home and sleep in your bed at night"

U.S. President Abraham Lincoln was also embalmed following his assassination in 1865, enabling his body to be taken on its winding, three-week train journey back to Springfield, Illinois, with open-casket memorial services along the way.

TRAYVON MARTIN ORIGINAL 911 CALL ENHANCED VERSION!(Screams)
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v =AYxJieDtLo0XX
Sheriff's Office releases more 911 calls made by George Zimmerman

Records show Zimmerman, 28, called the cops 46 times between January 2011 and Feb. 26.

Many of the calls appear related to his crime-watch volunteer role. The most frequent reason for his calls — nine times — was to report a suspicious person, according to Sanford Police Department records released last week.

How typical of the Left to idolise a despot who gloried in attacking America and Britain

By Michael Burleigh

PUBLISHED: 18:14 EST, 6 March 2013 | UPDATED: 02:41 EST, 7 March 2013

Scenes of mass grief and hysteria have accompanied the deaths of many dictators, from the Soviet Union’s Josef Stalin in 1953 to North Korea’s Kim Jong-Il in 2011.

The public mourning in Venezuela following the death this week of the country’s Socialist President Hugo Chavez from cancer at the age of 58 will be played out for weeks.

The Venezuelan people have been whipped into hysteria by the propaganda of the sinister — and aggressively anti-American — political machine Chavez left behind as his legacy.

Rep. Issa to investigate release of illegal immigrants following Babeu letter

by Andrew Michalscheck

Video report by Yetta Gibson

Posted on March 6, 2013 at 3:21 PM

Updated Wednesday, Mar 6 at 6:17 PM

PINAL COUNTY, Ariz.-- California Congressman Darrell Issa has announced that he will be launching a formal investigation into the Department of Homeland Security’s decision to release several thousand illegal immigrants in response to the federal budget cuts that have gone into effect.

Issa, who is the Chairman of the Oversight and Government Reform Committee, made his announcement on Tuesday.

On Monday, Pinal County Sheriff Paul Babeu sent a letter to Issa’s office requesting that he investigate the matter.

Babeu first spoke about the release of thousands of illegal immigrants at the end of last month when he sent out a press release stating that more than 500 detainees had been released in Pinal County.

Had Romney won, the Romneyites would be praising him with glory, but Obama takes the credit for this accomplishment. Once again, Obama has not failed you.

I would not vote for Obama because he promised to let the states decide for themselves about medical marijuana and the Federal Government keeps spending our tax dollars on going after the medical marijuana businesses who are legal in that state. Where is our freedom going if the people can't vote for their own decisions.

Not everyone talks to their neighbors, Eagle, heck, those neighbors were the ones Zimmerman says looked out their doors and windows and would not get involved in the altercation after hearing cries for help.
No but they did call 911.. Nobody expects their neighbor to get in the middle of a fight.. But I guess that is a breakdown in society nowadays though.. What a pity his dad and girlfriend didn't get to know their neighbors especially living in a townhouse community..

<quoted text>Why didn't Tracey ask Chad,Brandy green's son, where Trayvon was? Why didn't Tracey notice squad cars in the neighborhood not far from where he was living if he had returned home at the time he claimed? They would have been still there. Stranger still, the police went door to door looking to identify Trayvon. They would have stopped at Brandy Green's place. If Chad was home as claimed, he could have identified him. Even stranger, Dee Dee's story is starting to come apart. She claims she was too distraught to go to Trayvon's funeral. In fact she had to go to the hospital for treatment. Yet,there are no records of this. Even stranger still what happened to Brandy Green? Seems she and Tracey are no longer an item. They need to start investigating Benjamin Crump,shyster lawyer extraordinaire. He is not looking for justice for Trayvon. He is looking to make some big money. Couldn't care a damn less about Trayvon.
Props to ya AC.. Hope you have a great weekend..

I asked NTR to define racism and/or being a racist. she won't.
they never do.
WA has been complaining to me about not being able to ahve a concersation. doesn't a conversation mean exchanging INTELLIGENT bits of data?
opinion and feeling always seems to trump facts and logic with some certain folks. makes having a 'converstion' rather frustrating.
when being nice still gets you called a bigot or racist, why play nice? for very long?
as regards GZ, I made these same arguments most of last Spring and early Summer to the same dumbarse-type posters. same result...
it's been 8/9 months and ain't nothing changed... except the gf's story!:) I prefer the FIRST witness' testimonies.... before the fanily lawyers got to them (wink, wink).
my biggest fear is that GZ WILL be convicted... FOR THE WRONG REASONS.
our Country is traveling a WRONG course... and has been for decades.

It goes back to sticks and stones may break bones but names will never hurt me higgins.. We know the truth.. He might be convicted of manslaughter but I am sure it would be overturned in a appeal.. Just have to wait and see..
