 We are a rudderless nation
Without purpose and aim
Adrift on a sea of growing crises.
Recklessly steered
By a mad drunken sailor
Into icebergs and storms.
Staying the course
To disaster.
(Ripped off from John Hawkins)
If these quotes don't terrify the pants off of you then it means
you're a drunken, heedless, delusional fool like the president believing that America is a nation of inexhaustible wealth that can spend baby spend without consequence to infinity. 
1) What would you think of a person who earned $24,000 a year but spent $35,000? Suppose on top of that, he was already $170,000 in debt. You'd tell him to get his act together -- stop spending so much or he'd destroy his family, impoverish his kids and wreck their future. Of course, no individual could live so irresponsibly for long. But tack on eight more zeroes to that budget and you have the checkbook for our out-of-control, big-spending federal government. -- John Stossel
2) John Kitchen of the U.S. Treasury and Menzie Chinn of the University of Wisconsin published a study in 2010 entitled:Financing U.S. Debt: Is There Enough Money in the World -- and At What Cost? The fact that sane men are even asking this question ought to be deeply disturbing. As to the answer, foreign official holdings of U.S. Treasury securities have usually been less than 5 percent of the rest of the world's GDP. By 2009, they were up to 7 percent. By 2020, Kitchen and Chinn project them to rise to 19 percent of the rest of the world's GDP, which they say Whether the rest of the world will want to do it is another matter. A future that presumes the rest of the planet will sink a fifth of its GDP into U.S. Treasuries is no future at all. But on Big Government's streetcar named Desire we have come to depend on the kindness of strangers. --Mark Steyn

3) The Federal Reserve is propping up the entire U.S. economy by buying 61 percent of the government debt issued by the Treasury Department, a trend that cannot last, Lawrence Goodman, a former Treasury official and current president of the Center for Financial Stability, writes in a Wall Street Journal opinion article published Wednesday. -- Newsmax
4) In fact, in 2006, the Census Bureau found only 2.2 million households earning more than $250,000. And most of those are closer to the Lubbock city manager than to Carlos Slim, income-wise. To jump from the 50th to the 51st percentile isn’t that tough; jumping from the 96th to the 97th takes a lot of schmundo. It’s lonely at the top.

But say we wanted to balance the budget by jacking up taxes on Club 250K. That’s a problem: The 2012 deficit is forecast to hit $1.1 trillion under Obama’s budget. (Thanks, Mr. President!) Spread that deficit over all the households in Club 250K and you have to jack up their taxes by an average of $500,000 -- which you simply can’t do, since a lot of them don’t have $500,000 in income to seize. Most of them are making $250,000 to $450,000 and paying about half in taxes already. You can squeeze that goose all day, but that’s not going to make it push out a golden egg. ....Every time you raise the threshold for eating the rich, you get a much, much smaller serving of meat on the plate — but the deficit stays the same. The long division gets pretty ugly. You end up chasing a revenue will-o’-the-wisp. -- Kevin Williamson

5) Within a decade, the United States will be spending more of the federal budget on its interest payments than on its military. You read that right: more on debt service than on the armed services. According to the CBO's 2010 long-term budget outlook, by 2020 the government will be paying between 15 and 20 percent of its revenues in debt interest. Whereas defense spending will be down between 14 and 16 percent. -- Mark Steyn
6) (In Pennsylvania, a) single mom is better off earning gross income of $29,000 with $57,327 in net income & benefits than to earn gross income of $69,000 with net income and benefits of $57,045." -- From Gary Alexander, Secretary of Public Welfare, Commonwealth of Pennsylvania
7) For every 1.65 employed persons in the private sector, 1 person receives welfare assistance. For every 1.25 employed persons in the private sector, 1 person receives welfare assistance or works for the government. ...The punchline: 110 million privately employed workers; 88 million welfare recipients and government workers and rising rapidly. -- Tyler Durden
8) My name’s Ronnie Bryant, and I’m a mine operator…. I’ve been issued a [state] permit in the recent past for [waste water] discharge, and after standing in this room today listening to the comments being made by the people…. [pause] Nearly every day without fail — I have a different perspective — men stream to these [mining] operations looking for work in Walker County. They can’t pay their mortgage. They can’t pay their car note. They can’t feed their families. They don’t have health insurance. And as I stand here today, I just … you know … what’s the use? I got a permit to open up an underground coal mine that would employ probably 125 people. They’d be paid wages from $50,000 to $150,000 a year. We would consume probably $50 million to $60 million in consumables a year, putting more men to work. And my only idea today is to go home. What’s the use? I don’t know. I mean, I see these guys — I see them with tears in their eyes — looking for work. And if there’s so much opposition to these guys making a living, I feel like there’s no need in me putting out the effort to provide work for them. So as I stood against the wall here today, basically what I’ve decided is not to open the mine. I’m just quitting. Thank you. -- Ronnie Bryant
9) Wyatt Emerich of The Cleveland Current analyzes disposable income and economic benefits among several key income classes and comes to the stunning (and verifiable) conclusion that "a one-parent family of three making $14,500 a year (minimum wage) has more disposable income than a family making $60,000 a year.
10) The typical husband and wife who reach age 66 and qualify for Social Security -- Starting next year, this typical couple, receiving the average benefit, will begin collecting a combination of cash and health-care entitlement benefits that will total $1 million over their remaining expected lifetime.

According to my calculations based on government data, such married couples will begin receiving monthly Social Security checks that will, on average, total about $550,000 after inflation. They will receive health-care services paid for by Medicare that, on average, will total another $450,000 after inflation. The benefactors will be a generation of younger workers who are trying to support themselves and their families while paying taxes to finance the rest of government spending.

...Medicare premiums paid by senior citizens once covered half of the cost of physician and related services. They now cover one-fourth. Copayments once covered nearly 40% of these services’ costs. They now cover only 20%. -- Joe Cogan

11) The CBO numbers foresee net interest payments rising from 9 percent of revenue to 36 percent in 2030, then to 58 percent in 2040, and up to 85 percent in 2050. If that trajectory holds, we'll be spending more than the planet's entire military budget on debt interest. But forget mid-century because, unless something changes, whatever goes by the name of "America" under those conditions isn't worth talking about. -- Mark Steyn
12) The total present value of payments expected under Social Security and Medicare beyond what is expected to be collected under current tax laws is about $100 trillion. One way to put that amount of money in context is to note that it is about twice the amount of all the net private assets that exist in America today. To answer cw’s question directly, the best back-of-envelope estimate is that meeting this unfunded portion of our Social Security and Medicare commitments would require roughly an immediate 80 percent increase in federal income taxes, sustained forever. — Jim Manzi
13) The total fiscal overhang of our federal, state, and local governments — their combined debt and unfunded liabilities — is around $140 trillion, and growing. That is about twice the annual economic output of human civilization, and nearly the value of all the financial assets in the world. It is something close to a mathematical certainty that those debts and obligations will not be made good on at their present value. -- Kevin Williamson
 Admiral Mike Mullen, former Chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff for Bush and Obama, said, "Our unsustainable long term national debt [which is growing faster than the economy] is the greatest threat to our national security (see) ." And he is absolutely right.




Congress Must Censure President Obama over Hiroshima Speech - Breitbart


"Let's do away with nuclear weapons which ended World War II and prevented a third world war between Capitalism and Socialism (where the later was the evil aggressor). Let's return human history to the pre-nuclear age of Great Powers Wars when the earth was turned into an ocean of blood and death ." This sums up Obama's utterly mindless message at Hiroshima, and jihad against nuclear bombs which so far have done great good in terms of international peace and no real harm to mankind.


Obama is a man of staggering stupidity, blindness and naivety showing a stunning lack of reality unseen before in a Commander-in-Chief in our 240 year history. From reset with Russia to ignoring his generals and prematurely pulling out of Iraq (when he had the leverage to keep our troops there on US terms) American foreign policy is in a shambles as the world descends into chaos and hell. And still trusting in his judgment which has failed this country and world so badly he goes off to Japan to embarrass our country again by tacitly apologizing to the Japanese (which he symbolically did by bowing to its emperor in 2009*) for winning a war we didn't begin by nuking Japan into peace. "Death rained down from the skies and the world was changed" says this lame brain fool about Hiroshima and Nagasaki. What changed was ending the deadliest, costliest, most devastating war in human history and in a way that saved perhaps millions of lives (2 million Japanese soldiers, 1 million militia) from a horrific ground invasion.

*The only way to make sense of Obama bowing to the powerless son of mass murderer Japanese supremacist emperor Hiroito  is to apologize for ending the war with nuclear bombs-as if it were a worse atrocity and crime than the unprovoked attack on Pearl Harbor and the butchering and slaughter of 11 million Asians (mostly civilians) during the war. 

But if Obama had been our 33rd President rest assured he'd not have dropped the bomb and changed the world for the better-from a condition of war with Japan to one of unconditional surrender, peace and friendship. No. This idiot would have continued the war possibly for years against a people preferring death to the humiliation and shame of defeat-willing to sacrifice themselves massively for their emperor, ancestors, racial gods and national pride. Unless faced with nuclear annihilation Japan would not have surrendered unconditionally until defeated in a devastating land war. The nuking of Hiroshima and Nagasaki crushed Japan's will to fight which saved countless lives.


 Dresden after firebombing

Imagine a sitting president visiting Dresden, Germany, which was fire bombed into burning rubble killing tens and thousands, honoring the monstrous Nazi war machine and war dead*? Was the savage, brutal, fanatic army of mass murdering Imperial Japan, with its horrific racist record of atrocities and war crimes second only to the Nazis, worthy of honor? Imagine Lincoln going to a Civil War battlefield to honor dead Confederate soldiers who killed tens and thousands of Union troops in defense of the evil institution of slavery.

*I know about Ronald Reagan's controversial visit to Bitburg military cemetery.
But he did that as a favor to Chancellor Helmut Kohl a loyal anti-Communist ally of America's in the Cold War who Reagan paid  back for agreeing to the deployment of Pershing and Cruise missiles in Germany against massive opposition from the peace movement.
Of the 140,000 nuked to death in Hiroshima how many were thrilled to learn about their sneak attack victory at Pearl Harbor? And how many wanted more and greater Pearl Harbors and supported their country's war of aggression up until the bomb dropped on them? Only weak minded fools believe that they didn't deserve Hiroshima and Nagasaki and more A-bomb attacks if they didn't surrender, and we should feel guilt, shame and sorrow for doing it.

Only the honorable are worthy of honor. Who but an imbecile or evil man honors depraved and wicked soldiers fighting to the death for an evil cause who justly died? What difference does it make if they're  killed with bullets or incinerated by nukes (as a last resort when all else fails). Who but an imbecile and fool does this just before a Memorial Day weekend when we honor our war dead? It is inarguably insane! No wonder Obama is so loathed by our service men and women (and had three Defense Secretaries quit on him) with only 15% approving of his leadership and job. What Obama did in bowing to emperor Hirohito's son in 2009, and said at Hiroshima yesterday was disgraceful in the extreme and should be censured by Congress immediately so that no future president does it again! 


In the comment section this morning danceringgrandma posted this criticism:

"Apollo, stop lying about Obama at Hiroshima. He wasn't honoring fallen Japanese soldiers.. He was honoring all those who perished and were injured in that criminally immoral bombing which was unnecessary and shouldn't have happened."


As Truman said in nuking Hiroshima we destroyed its usefulness to the enemy in their unjustified war against us. In feeling remorse over the bombing because it gave birth to the nuclear age (where there's been more world peace than before Hiroshima) Obama was implying (typical of anti-American leftists) that the US made a bad mistake that we should feel guilty for; and those killed in the blast (everyone including soldiers and militarized civilians-the  citizen militia trained to kill our invading troops) deserve to be honored as innocent victims as if one and all were as blameless as children despite their backing of the war. In other words, Obama was honoring the monsters together with the innocent making no distinction between them treating all equally as the criminally wronged victims of the evil US bomb. Pathetic.



The Progressive Liberal FDR created the nuclear bomb. The Progressive Liberal Harry Truman detonated the first nuke then dropped it twice on Japan vaporizing tens and thousands.

Were it not for Progressive Liberalism they'd be no nuclear bombs or Nuclear Age; and our country wouldn't be in danger of Moslem jihadists getting the bomb and killing us by the millions.


and must be destroyed before it creates deadlier weapons of mass destruction to kill millions and obliterate mankind. /sarc



First he's spurned and berned by Hillary; then he's spurned and berned by Trump. No one wants to debate The Bern as his socialist revolution to save America from greedy industrial polluting capitalism is reaching its end and berning out. All that promised free stuff going up in flames with millions feeling cheated and berned. Bern's only hope is Hillary being indicted and berning down her campaign. But then Bern will be berned by Joe Biden who Obama will back to the hilt throwing the Democrat Party into complete turmoil.

Socialism is a big bad lie. Bernie Sanders is a socialist. Therefore, Bernie is a big bad liar.  


Socialists like Bernie believe that human society is PERFECTIBLE; but it's not self-perfectible and needs government (run by people like him) to perfect it.

But how can imperfect human government, run by flawed politicians and bureaucrats PERFECT imperfect human society peopled by flawed human beings?










It is certain that stubborn, unbending, free stuff socialist loon Bernie "last ballot" Sanders, who's in the race for the Democratic nomination to the bitter end (till the last ballot is counted at the  convention) is damaging front-runner Hillary Clinton's chances of beating Donald Trump in November. Sanders, who is virtually unelectable because of his radical socialist views (35% of Americans stupidly believe in socialism while the wiser 50% do not), weather he knows it or not and likes it or not, is an unwilling and unwitting ally of the 1% real estate capitalist tycoon against Hillary. Indeed, key polls show Trump significantly catching up to Hillary and in some instances surpassing her with voters. And this in part is due to Bernie's relentless campaign against her (that grows in intensity by the day) as a business-as-usual establishment Democrat and puppet of Wall Street and corporate greed-while the country cries out for reform and change. Indeed, ignoring the reality that he's trailing far behind in delegates free stuff, utopian Bernie boldly presses on convinced from the polls that he's the one to beat Trump not his Democratic foe; and that by some miracle (possibly Hillary's indictment which he's certainly praying for) he'll become his party's nominee and first Jewish president completing the disastrous job of national transformation begun by Obama.
Meanwhile, crooked, untrustworthy, low energy Hillary pounded daily by Trump and Sanders (and in fear of the FBI investigation despite appearances) is not holding up well. Visibly frustrated and physically weakening she looks more weary, tired and aged by the day as she slips in the polls against the supremely confident and tireless Trump. What shape will Hillary be in 60 days when the convention begins? Perhaps it's best that she uses these two months to rest up like she did for five days before her Benghazi hearing.
But could it be that Donald Trump unexpectedly clinching the Republican nomination yesterday is an auspicious sign on just how much and effective an ally Sanders is? And that he might be irreparably hurting Hillary and killing her bid for the presidency? For by providence or chance yesterday, the 26th of May, was Bernie's anniversary of launching his candidacy with his rousing speech in Burlington where he was mayor (see). And by providence or chance when Sanders' kicked off his candidacy it was 45 days from April 12th (see) when Hillary (on the 70th anniversary of FDR's death) began her run for the 45th presidency. Could it be that yesterday Trump (on Bernie's campaign anniversary) becoming the de facto GOP nominee is a sign that the socialist is advancing his path to the 45th presidency-thus making him the first New Yorker by birth and residence since FDR to be President? FDR, by the way, won the presidency on a November 8th election date, the date of this year's election.
It is also worth noting, and very odd indeed, that yesterday May 26th was the 147th day of the year (see). Odd because (as I wrote about HERE) 47 appears to be a terribly unlucky number for the 1947 born Hillary. As I wrote there's been two presidents (Clinton and Bush) who like Trump were born in 1946, and two presidents (JFK and Nixon) who started their careers in politics that year-making 1946 a propitious year to be born for a presidential candidate. But 1947 has proved not to be such a lucky year for such candidates. For Hillary and Romney (also born in 47) failed three times to reach the White House: Romney and Hillary in 2008, and Romney again in 2012. Is Hillary destined to be the Democratic Mitt Romney this year? It's looking more and more that way as Sanders and Trump wear her down.
But what is truly astonishing is that yesterday, the 147th day of the year, when Trump became the GOP nominee, strangely coincides with the exact number of FBI agents (147) Comey has investigating Hillary. Could this be an omninous sign of things to come for her? If it is, if she's indicted for crimes, then Joe Biden could be the  Democratic candidate as socialist Bernie despite the polls (as I said above) is unelectable against Donald Trump. Biden, by the way, is the 47th VP.
On the day that Trump became the GOP's 19th presidential  nominee, one year from the start of Sanders campaign, both men agreed in principle to have a cross party debate, unprecedented in American political history. You can't make this stuff up. If it happens the event will be billed Capitalism vs Socialism. And as a preview of what to expect Trump, unlike Hillary, will use the utter failure of Single Payer Socialist Healthcare in Bernie's home state in Vermont (its costs were prohibitive and never got off the ground, see) to completely discredit him as he insanely wants this failure for the nation.
And as the issue of our staggering fiscal debt of $19 trillion was never raised during the Democrat debates (Dems think that America is inexhaustibly rich) Trump will use it to crush Sanders who wants to expand the size of our runaway spendthrift government another 40% to create his utopian nanny super state. When brash politically incorrect Trump confidently predicts that he'll win the debate he's 1000% correct.  Sanders doesn't have a fighting chance as socialism is regressive and impoverishing and capitalism progressive and enriching  having lifted billions out of poverty in 200 years. If this great political event occurs Trump will score big with independents as radical extremist crazy Sanders will make him look ultra sane and reasonable by comparison.
Also Trump insists that the debate be used to raise $10 million for charity; and smartly the big mean ungentlemanly misogynist (he hates men too except for himself) wants it for " women's issues."  Perhaps the funds should go to breast cancer research. Both candidates could certainly agree on that.
Meanwhile, if the debate goes forward Hillary will be eating her heart out that she didn't keep her word and debate Sanders as the event will make her look irrelevant going into the June 7th primaries; and with her leading Bernie by just 2 percentage points in California a loss there would be a huge last minute blow to her campaign. As I said above Bernie is Trump's best political ally for beating Hillary in the fall.




Increased violence against women

because of Trump's

misogyny and


The situation is getting desperate and everyone is looking away. The murder, rape and domestic violence rates of the American female community have soared since Donald Trump began his repugnant campaign of building walls, kicking balls and every unspeakable evil. How could his popularity with women be inching up and Hillary's falling when their safety and security in our streets, homes and workplaces, due to Trump, is steadily eroding-as recent studies and news stories show? Have the women of America gone nuts? Don't they know that Trump is now Commander-in-Chief of the GOP's Nuclear War on Women? Apparently not. Apparently there's been a media black out on the rising number of women dying from Trump inspired hatred and violence. For whatever reason (sexist or not) the media's coverage of growing violence across the land (since Trump started running) focuses on Blacks, Moslems and Latinos only. And as Trump is at war with China and Japan (over the trade deficit) Asian Americans will soon be under attack-with Toyotas and Hondas smashed and trashed a is the 80s. But how do we explain the media's silence about women as the topmost of Trump's battered and terrorized victims?



Where is Hillary and her army of feminist warriors on this issue? Why aren't they castigating the press for this blackout? Are they afraid to piss them off and lose support? I guess I'm just a lone voice in the wilderness. But do hear me out about the catastrophic impact of Trumpism on women as it could save the life of a dear one. For since Trump announced his candidacy not only is anti-women violence rising but so is female unemployment, poverty and suicides. When Trump's powerful voice speaks ill of a woman many feel so devalued and demeaned that some have killed themselves to escape the shame. Amazing is Trump's power over them. Moreover, the two million women who slipped into poverty from the start of Obama's presidency has jumped another mill in the last ten months since the start of Trump's victorious run.  Don't be fooled. There's no coincidence here. The Trump Effect is real and dangerously growing. More than any other minority Trump is lethal to the ladies-a lady killer physically. Indeed, as a sign of things to come Trump's mother nearly died when she gave birth to him as he punched his way out of her womb a year after WW II.



And what if, God forbid, the unthinkable happens and Trump beats the indispensable Hillary (the last best hope for womankind) and becomes President? It will internationalize the Trump Effect spilling across our open borders putting billions of women in peril. Why reverse the little gains made in women's rights in third world states? Why make the suffering of women Islamically worse in Moslem lands where they're treated like dirt? If Hillary loses to Trump male chauvinism and patriarchy will return to the West with a vengeance, and aggravate it where it's still the rule hurting the chance of reform. 




Stop Trump's Nuclear War on Women and make American history, vote Hillary Clinton for Femident. She will end the disastrous Trump Effect and reset American women like she fixed US/Russian relations by winning over Putin. And after 16 years of two faithful boring presidents there will be the excitement of turning the White House into an Open Fly Zone again-if you know what I mean.


Ain't she sweet!







‘They Didn’t Raise Their Son Right’: George Zimmerman Goes After Trayvon Martin’s Parents · Mediaite · Disqus

As I've said  HERE, HERE and  HERE  it was Karmic Justice, the moral law of cause and effect, that brought George Zimmerman and Trayvon Martin together on the night of February 26, 2012 getting the latter killed as he was trying to beat a frantic Z to death with his furious racist, homophobic fists. The underlying cause of the conflict was not Z doing his job as a community watchman and reporting to police the very suspicious T (who was't walking straight home that fateful night like Z haters want you to believe); nor was it Z following T at a safe distance for police (expected of a watchman) then looking for him when he bolted and disappeared (but didn't run home where he was to watch the NBA all star game). No. The underlying cause was a good, innocent black kid gone bad corrupted by a collapsing black culture into utter cruelty, barbarism, savagery and sin that glorifies murder and violence. Unfortunately T, who was so charming and sweet at age 12, came to emulate and idealize the worst kind of black filth and trash: lawless anti-social gangstas and gang bangers-young and older black men who disrespect and hate authority (family, school, church, police and government) believing that they're laws unto themselves. These lawless anarchists and criminals believe that anything they want to do is right and good; and that no one has the right to stand in their way and put limits and restraints on them; and those who do are the enemy; hence, Trayvon's twitter account name:
Trayvon's transformation from a good little kid into a violent aggressor that got him killed like thousands of morally corrupt black kids each year-in the epidemic of violent black teen deaths sweeping over our inner cities.
"NO_LIMIT_NIGGA" means that T was defiantly opposed to any outside force or authority directing his life and limiting his desires, passions and appetites. Such kids are full of anger and rage and could fly off the handle into murderous violence just by looking at them badly. But Z was doing worse that fatal day; beyond merely looking at T he was following him and being intrusively offensive in the extreme; and add to that that Z might be a gay predator out to rape him (as friend Rachel Jeantel told Piers Morgan) and that made him deserving of the severest punishment: crippling injuries or death for his terrible disrespect.
 And this mad obsession with Z-the "creepy ass [homo] cracka [rapist] who was "stalking" him-is what most likely got Trayvon  killed that night-and yes, his upbringing in a broken single parent home certainly contributed to his moral ruination, as Z says. Bottom line, if Trayvon was a good, decent, law-abiding, authority respecting, normal kid he wouldn't have been in Sanford that night suspended from school and karmically fated to die-suspiciously walking about just as the gun carrying, off duty Z drove by. Indeed, a well behaved Trayvon would be alive today and we wouldn't know his name and that of George Zimmerman (which would have been the case if Z had been black). As Trayvon was a ticking time bomb with a combustible heart one wonders whose life providence may have saved because of his early death.

But Z is back in the news making headlines again; and this time it's for the sale of the life saving gun he used to kill Trayvon-which the Justice Department returned to him after a failed 33 month investigation to find racial bigotry and hate in what Z truly and rightly believed was a deadly but necessary deed.
Reuters reported Friday the good news that Z hit the jackpot and sold his life saving gun for $250,000. This sale was well beyond the gun's market value making it one of the greatest sale for a single gun in history. And the anti-Zimmerman haters are fuming with some imagining that the buyer is a white supremacist, confederate flag waving nazi who'd like to shove black people into ovens or put them in chains again. Z says that part of the sale proceeds will go to helping policemen who fall victim to Black Lives Matter inspired violence; and stopping Hillary Clinton from bringing her war on guns to the White House-if Z had no gun he'd likely be dead or crippled for life.
If God came down from Heaven and made a deal with the Martins telling them that he would return Trayvon to them if they give up the millions that they made from his death, but that he'd return just as he left with all his flaws and sins (i.e. the same bad, troubled kid) what do you think they would do?  Keep their wealth and tell God to bug off? Or would they gladly sacrifice their riches and welcome back Trayvon flaws and all?
I also love it that Z used the spotlight to criticize his arch enemies Tracy Martin and Sabrina Fulton (Trayvon's divorced parents) who head the deranged, racist "Justice for Trayvon" lynch mob that demonized Z lying that he killed their son in cold blood and was the racist killer of the century. In an interview Z said that Trayvon would be alive today if  his folks did a better job raising him-and he is right. But there are way too many black parents like the Martins who are responsible for the tidal wave of death and destruction that's engulfing young black men-as they're killed by the thousands every year shot to death mostly by blacks. Z killing Trayvon was emblematic of that.
  If George Zimmerman had Trayvon's skin color his death would have been an  unimportant ten second news story on the local news with no murder charges brought against him and no trial. And there would not have been a national "Justice For Trayvon" movement making his parents rich; nor would there be 
Black Lives Matter which rose from Zimmerman's acquittal claiming that it was racist and devalued black lives.
Below are two debates from a dozen or so I recently had on  with George Zimmerman haters. The first debate is wide-ranging and covers many aspects of the case and ends with a new approach to the 911 call where Zimmerman is heard screaming for his life. The second debate (the briefer of the two) disputes the widely held leftist view that Z is a text book sociopath and violence prone psycho-a dangerous man and ticking time bomb who should be behind bars.


it was Trayvon Martin's violent, homophobic, gangsta masculinity that likely got him killed.

According to Rachel, Trayvon also told Zimmerman to get off of him, so Zimmerman grabbed him. What do you have to say about that?



Rachel Jeantel on balance wasn't credible. She lied and repeatedly contradicted herself which is why the jury ignored her (muddled) testimony and the prosecution lost the case. Besides, eye-witness John Good saw Trayvon pinning Z to the ground and beating him as Z was fighting for his life and crying for help. Z had six injuries and T his gunshot wound (shot from under him as experts testified). Z's injuries were consistent with the defense's position that T was the violent aggressor in the conflict maliciously intending harm to Z.
 Except that Rachel Jeantel WAS a credible witness when she said that Trayvon called Zimmerman a "creepy asscracker."
It's called.... the prosecution sent all of their witnesses out to the stand with no preparation....
There was no proof whatsoever that Trayvon had been shot from the bottom. Don't even try to bring up Vincent Di Maio's testimony when Di Maio admitted he ran no experiments.
" Z's injuries were consistent with the defense's position" And that's why the defense tried multiple times to change Zimmerman's story at the trial..
And the experiments that showed Trayvon was shot from a different angle and that Z's six wounds were self-inflicted were......?
Wasn't it Jeantel who told defense attorney West that Trayvon made it home that night to his father's house, and it was there that the conflict took place? When it was 90-100 yards up the walk path in front of eyewitness John Good's house?
The bottom of the following map of Twin Lakes shows how utterly absurd and incredulous the prosecution's star witness was and why she failed so badly.
Anthony ApolloSpeaks  
"And the experiments that showed Trayvon was shot from a different angle and that Z's six wounds were self-inflicted were?" Did the prosecution even try, since they DIDN'T EVEN PREPARE, AND THEY NEGLECTED AND EVEN INSULTED THEIR OWN WITNESSES?
"Wasn't it Jeantel who told West that Trayvon made it home that night to his father's house" She said that Trayvon was "by his daddy's house" which doesn't literally mean that he was right there at the door. Surely, Chad Joseph never said he was back at the house, and Trayvon didn't leave his snacks there and bring a weapon back with him.


The "prosecution not preparing their own witnesses" is the excuse used by Z haters for the lack of any evidence proving malicious intent. Like the Sanford PD neither the local prosecutor nor the FBI nor the State prosecutor had any evidence proving malice to confute Z's claim that he acted legally and morally in self-defense. The trial was driven by politics not evidence-it was a political trial which Governor Scott was forced into by a race obsessed liberal media and political elite convinced that Z was a racist killer getting away with the murder of an innocent unarmed black kid. 
And when the trial was over and the DOJ continued the FBI's investigation into civil rights violations, after a 33 months and finding zilch they returned to Z the gun he used to legally and morally kill T.
Really, Anthony, what do you know that everyone else missed?
"And the DOJ, after a 33 month long investigation, returned Z's gun because Holder and Lynn could find no evidence that it was used in a crime." Because civil rights violations are a much higher bar, so what?
"Like the Sanford PD, the local prosecutor and FBI the State Prosecutor didn't have a single piece of evidence to confute Z's claim that he acted in self-defense. "
Oh, yeah, the police sure did a decent investigation. They found that Trayvon and Zimmerman had arms and a neck like Plastic Man, when Zimmerman shot Trayvon on the grass lawn ten feet away from the concrete sidewalk... OH WAIT
They sure found it strange when Zimmerman adamantly refused to see a doctor for his scratches...OH WAIT.
They actually waited for the autopsy results to come out on Trayvon after a few hours.... OH WAIT.
They actually gave Zimmerman a polygraph, and asked him several specific questions about the scuffle and shooting...they so didn't just give him a "voice stress analysis" and only as two very vague questions... OH WAIT..
They drug tested Zimmerman... OH WAIT
They didn't coach Zimmerman when Zimmerman said that the screams "doesn't even sound like me" ....OH WAIT..
They had Zimmerman lie down on the floor to demonstrate how he was able to bend his arm and aim the gun with one hand while lying on his back, without the recoil breaking his arm on the ground...OH WAIT
They asked Zimmerman about what happened to the bushes that he said Trayvon tackled him from... OH WAIT...
What else did they NOT miss? *SARCASM*
LOL!!! How many wounds did Z have? Where were they located and how did he get them? Were they self-inflicted? Did they miraculously materialize from the thin air like a stigmata? Was John Good lying or hallucinating when he saw the stronger, superior, athletic Trayvon in a commanding position on top of the much weaker Z beating away at him with Z crying for help? John Good saw no gun in Z's hands. Trayvon never cried that Z had a gun as he was whacking him. Luckily Z managed to get to his weapon and stop the assault before it turned really deadly.
The Sanford PD investigation was superseded by the FBI investigation and a parallel Florida Department of Law Enforcement investigation. When neither could find evidence incriminating Z the Justice Dept stepped in and the FBI opened a parallel civil rights investigation. They turned up nothing.
Then came the indictment by Angela Corey's office with her lead investigator Dale Gilbreath questioned by O'Mara during the April 12th bond hearing. Though the affidavit said that "Zimmerman confronted Martin and a struggle ensued," Gilbreath contradicting that admitted to O'Mara that his office had no evidence of who confronted who or threw the first punch. In other words, the charge of second degree murder was bogus from the start and eventually collapsed in court for lack of evidence as it should have.
Most any armed person in Z's place would have used his/her gun to equalize the difference in animal power and strength between themselves and a superior and pitiless assailant. The evidence was overwhelming that Z acted in self-defense and escaped severe injuries or possible death and that it was T who had malicious intent and was the CRIMINAL in the conflict.  And six jurors hearing testimonies and reviewing the evidence for 19 days agreed finding Z's killing of Trayvon morally and legally justified.
The Feds did not look for evidence to try Zimmerman for the case. They looked for civil rights violations which are a higher bar than manslaughter.
"Gilbreath contradicting that admitted to O'Mara that his office had no evidence who confronted who or threw the first punch. "
Mark O'Mara also mentioned the "who threw the first punch" at the trial, to raise reasonable doubt in order to help get Zimmerman off.
Who threw the first punch, and there weren't many punches thrown because neither Zimmerman and *MORE IMPORTANTLY, NOR TRAYVON* had bruises, swelling, cuts, breaks, or other injuries to their knuckles, wrists, nor hands (they wrestled around) *DOESN'T MATTER* even though there was the testimony that Trayvon told Zimmerman to get off of him (and even Juror B37 admitted that she believed Zimmerman was the initial aggressor.
*WHAT MATTERS* is the law of self defense, which says you must be in *reasonable fear of imminent serious bodily injury or death*
Claiming that you had to shoot someone to keep your head, bald like ZImmerman's was or not, from being grabbed in a vice grip hands and repeatedly smashed dozens of times onto a concrete sidewalk...
does *NOT* meet the requirements for self-defense. Period
The defense is *NOT* going to tell the jury that, because they're trying to get their defendant off. And Zimmerman's defense lawyers were *DEFINITELY NOT* going to mention the evidence that Zimmerman was *NOT* having his head bashed on concrete when he shot Martin, because he shot Martin on the grass lawn a significant distance away from the concrete, to the jury.
It's up to the prosecution to mention the evidence that Zimmerman did not have his head bashed on the concrete when he shot Trayvon and the law of self-defense.
The biggest reasons for why Zimmerman was found "not guilty" was because the prosecution mentioned NEITHER to the jury...
Z's trial was about "Self-Defense vs Second Degree Murder." And six juriors came down on the side of self-defense acquitting Z of murder. Each of those jurors putting themselves vicariously in Z's place would have acted no differently.They concluded from the evidence that Z's life was in danger as he was pinned down by a young man of superior energy and strength pounding away at him as eyewitness John Good said-who, btw saw the altercation move to the concrete sidewalk. As Z (the weak, slow, fat, unathletic martial arts failure) felt his life was threatened by the stronger man on top of him he cried out for help repeatedly (as John Good said). Those were authentic cries of desperation by a man frightened for his life. Who under such terrtible duress carrying a gun wouldn't have  used it in self-defense?
Though Juror B37 thought that Z might have been the initial aggressor (she could not know for sure) she nevertheless gathered from the evidence that Z's life was in peril during the fight, and agreed with the other five jurors that shooting T was justified.
There is nothing the prosecution could have done differently that would have changed the outcome in their favor. The evidence was so overwhelmingly compelling, conclusive and clear that Z felt imperiled (fearing for his life) throughout the ordeal; and that Z shot T without malice strictly in self-defense.
BTW in March 2012 the DOJ started its own criminal investigation of Z. After Z's acquittal it started the 33 month civil rights investigation.
"There is nothing the prosecution could have done differently that would have caused a different outcome. The evidence was overwhelming, conclusive and clear that Z felt imperiled (fearing for his life) throughout the ordeal; and that there was no malicious intent in shooting T, that it was strictly in self-defense." 
That Zimmerman shot Trayvon on the lawn yards away from the concrete sidewalk. That Trayvon had no injuries to his hands, knuckles or wrists. That Zimmerman himself plus the voice analysis plus the autopsy concluded that it was NOT Zimmerman screaming on the tape. Some evidence supporting Zimmerman.
The voice analysts you refer to (whoever they are) were wrong . Eye witness John Good heard no cries from T. An FBI voice-recognition scientist testifying at the pre-trial hearing said that "he didn't believe it was possible to identify who was screaming in the background of a 911 call." He said "because the screaming voice was affected by distress or emotion, there was no way to compare it to reasonable, natural speech and come up with correct answers." But John Good heard the 18 seconds of screams and it was coming exclusively from Z-battling to free himself from T. PERIOD!
"he voice analysts were wrong ." *ROLFMAO*
at 21:35 You can hear Zimmerman HIMSELF "screaming" *ROLFMAO*
LOL!!! Now you've really stepped in it. The voice analysis expert that I quoted, Hirotaka Nakasone, was an expert witness for the prosecution in the Z trial. During his testimony he said, and I quote, that the 18 seconds of screams on the tape (eye and ear witnessed by John Good) were made by someone "under extreme duress and in a life threatening situation." When Z gave his weak reenactment he was not in the same highly stressful psychological state pumped up with adrenaline and fearing for his life. An extreme, heart pounding, situation like that could put any voice through a radical transformation. In fact, Z's screams were so remote from his normal speaking voice that (as you say) he couldn't recognize that they were his.
With John Good physically present at the scene witnessing a violent T on top of Z and hearing up close his frantic screams for help; and Nakasone asserting that the screams were coming from someone in a life threatening situation, with good reason Z was acquitted of murder. For the jury was rightly persuaded that Z's psychological state was one of stark raving terror; and while in that state he managed to get his gun and end what was terrifying him: T's vicious life threatening assault. No way given Good's and Nakasone's accounts (and add to this Vincent DiMaios expertise on gunshot wounds) that the prosecution could have elicited a guilty verdict out of the jury. Hell, no jury in the world would have convicted Z with witnesses like these. NONE!
"An extreme, heart pounding, situation like that could put any voice through a radical transformation. In fact, Z's screams were so remote from his normal speaking voice he couldn't recognize that they were his." ..... Because they weren't his, genius.
Here's a question for you. Did Zimmerman appear to be shaken up whatsoever after the "harrowing life threatening encounter?" 
Of Jonathan Manalo "He testified that Zimmerman did not appear in shock shortly after the shooting and was very calm." 
Does that sound like someone who had just been screaming for their life a second earlier, despite the fact that 1) no one would scream when they have a gun and are trying to use it 2) the screams ended immediately at the exact instant the shot was fired 3)since Zimmerman had no significant injuries and Trayvon had in injuries to his hands AND Zimmerman shot Trayvon on the grass lawn yards away from the concrete, Trayvon was doing nothing to Zimmerman (while the ex-bouncer, MMA trained and multiple weight classes heavier Zimmerman likely had scrawny ass Trayvon in a restraining hold when he shot him)? 4) The voice analysis proved it WASN'T ZImmerman 5) Zimmerman HIMSELF said IT WASN"T ZIMMERMAN SCREAMING 6) Trayvon's autopsy showed he had pneumothorax which means that if anyone would stop at the EXACT INSTANT IT WOULD BE TRAYVON 7) Zimmerman claimed that he didn't even know he had shot him?
First off I was playing with you when I seemed to buy your lie about Zimmerman not recognizing his voice on the 911 call-as you know he said no such thing. It was Tracy Martin who told Officer Chris Serano (overheard by Officer Singleton) that it wasn't his son screaming; on the stand he contradicted them claiming he said that he wasn't sure at the time that the screams were T's but after hearing the tape 20 times was certain they were his. Of course, the defense produced a string of witnesses identifying the screaming voice as Z's.


Secondly, there are certain personality types that can quickly return to a state of near calm after a traumatic experience. Once it's over it's as if it never happened and you can't tell they were in distress. It's been noted how consistently calm and emotionless Zimmerman was throughout the trial. When the verdict was read he smiled a bit, but it didn't seem to phase him. Z is a cold fish who on rare occasions has angry outbursts. But for the most part he's "MR COOL" as friends and relations say.



Nationally renowned forensic expert Vincent DaMaio reviewing all the evidence and drawing on decades of gunshot experience said that T's gunshot wound was consistent with Z's testimony; that he shot Z while being straddled by him. John Good saw T straddling Z and hitting him while Z was crying for help. Good testified that he yelled "what's going on" and told Trayvon to "stop it."


Prosecution witness neighbor Jennifer Laura testified that she and her husband heard Good from her house yell " What's going on." This confirms that Good was there an eye and ear witness to an overpowering athletic (former football player) Trayvon beating on Z who feared for his life and screamed .


That Z was a weight lifter and skilled in Mixed Martial Arts is a blatant lie. That Z might have had the very athletic T in a head lock or restraint hold when he shot him" is laughable.  Z's MMA instructor Adam Pollock (owner of the kickboxing gym where Z worked out) testified that the "grossly obese," "unathletic" Z had flunked his martial arts classes and had no aptitude for fighting. On a scale of 1 to 10 Pollock gave Z a next to zero "1" for athletic ability. Pollock also testified that


"He [Z] was an overweight, large man when he came to us, a very pleasant, very nice man, but physically soft and predominantly fat, not a lot of muscle, not a lot of strength." He also testified that Z came to the gym to lose weight and get in shape [not develop fighting skills]."



What other lies are you going to uselessly dish up about Z? Bring it on so I can knock them down one by one!


Anthony  ApolloSpeaks 


Okay, little buddy, I understand that the shooting happened 4 years ago, Zimmerman's trial was almost three years ago and he was found "not guilty," as was Casey and OJ before him, and double jeopardy laws say that none of them can be retried.


Stop trying to legitimize Zimmerman's acquittal. The facts were that it had far, *FAR* less to do with "there was no evidence against Zimmerman," or "Zimmerman was really innocent," and far, *FAR* more to do with the incompetence of the prosecutors who only took the case for political reasons (the initial prosecutor and the eventual prosecutor, the late Norm Wolfinger and Angela Corey, were both conservative Republicans, by the way


, then overcharged and underprosecuted Zimmerman.

As Lisa Bloom, who's one of the, and probably only legal experts to have actually interviewed the witnesses and jurors after the trial (hell, she spent more time talking to the prosecution's witnesses than the PROSECUTION DID! The prosecution didn't even prepare their own God damned witnesses) mentioned that the prosecution had Zimmerman's interviews with the detective for over a year and didn't once take notice of the fact that Zimmerman had his gun not in his front waistband, but his back hip. Of course the detectives not only didn't notice it either but also never once told Zimmerman to lay down and reenact it, you people like you will maintain that the detectives and the prosecution did such a great job.



The boring, empty, leftist refrain that "the prosecution didn't prepare their witnesses" is the excuse of racially obsessed Zimmerman haters who can't accept the reality of Trayvon Martin's and what a bad little out of control morally corrupt kid he was-corrupted by a decaying black culture of gangsta rappers and gang bangers into lawlessness, drug abuse, anarchy and deadly violence with a body count of young black men piled to the sky; a type of badly corrupted kid who'd fly into a rage if you looked at him the wrong way. Hell, Z was doing "worse" that fatal day: he (a possible gay predator) was following T an offense deserving T's fists punching and punishing Z's body and face.


LOL!!! How should the prosecution have prepared John Good who saw the conflict move on to the concrete sidewalk with Z screaming more frantically for his life? Was Good a lying racist? Was he hallucinating? You avoid Good for good reason: he's a reality check on your idiotic theory that Z acted with hatred and malice; a theory which is totally laughable within the context of Z's history as a responsible and conscientious community watchman-which is why Twin Lakes made him the coordinator with police for creating the watch program. It's only fools and idiots who believe that Z was so reckless and insane that after calling police who were on their way to apprehend and question the suspicious T that he was willing to sacrifice his life and liberty, and everything good he was working for, by killing a worthless nothing of a kid.


Do yourself a favor friend and get an education on the Trayvon Martins and Michael Browns of the world and see the award-winning HBO crime show "The Wire." It's about the sickening reality of black inner city life and the Martins and Browns who are killed every deadly day. The Wire is so painfully authentic and real that it's taught in college sociology classes. And that's all I have to say to you.



What's BEYOND boring is you wingnuts and your fantasies that have NO basis in reality. It was said DURING THE DAMN TRIAL that it was OBVIOUS the prosecution didn't spend ANY time with their witnesses before the trial other words... THEY DID NOT PREPARE THEIR OWN WITNESSES.


"ad little out of control morally corrupt kid he was-corrupted by a decaying black culture of gang bangers into lawlessness" NOW your showing your racism even more explicitly, wingnut. No proof whatsoever that Martin had anything to do with "gang bangers" because he certainly would have been armed and wouldn't have hesitated to shoot Zimmerman the second Zimmerman grabbed him. Smoking some pot, taking sophomoric pictures flipping the bird, and having some mischief at school while trying to straighten up for his mechanics classes are things that MANY PEOPLE HAVE DONE AS TEENAGERS. So I guess, according to you, We're ALL "corrupted gang bangers." You cons are full of crap.


Yet, you not only don't find ANYTHING wrong with Zimmerman's LONG history of assaulting and threatening people, you also don't find anything wrong with the fact that HIS OWN FAMILY accused him of sexual molestation (guess it's because YOU'VE done the same thing yourself, huh? Yeah, admit it, you wingnut deviant)


As for John Good, I have no idea why they prosecution chose to have him as a witness when he admitted to not seeing all what he claimed to have seen. Again that's your idea of the prosecutors being the best around, which is as big of a joke as you are.


"Do yourself a favor friend and get an education on the Trayvon Martins and Michael Browns " Michael Brown and Trayvon Martin are two totally different cases. Brown's case was in broad daylight with multiple witnesses and DNA evidence along with an officer who kept his same story.


Martin's was at night with no witnesses who saw the whole thing, and a REAL THUG NAME ZIMMERMAN who CHANGED HIS STORY THEN REFUSED TO SPEAK who had a LONG HISTORY of assaulting and threatening people, INCLUDING A POLICE OFFICER...


And that's all I have to say about you, little wingnut.

Trayvon screaming: Help! Help! He's got a gun! Help! Help! He wants to kill me! Help! Somebody, help! AHHHHHHHHH! Bang. Silence.


Stupid little Trayvon forgot to mention Z's gun in his 18 + seconds of screams. What was he smoking? Must have been memory impairing weed. LOL!!!!  




 Because Anthony had no answer or theory to explain why Trayvon Martin failed to mention the gun that was causing him to scream for his life (or why it took 18* seconds for Z to shoot him) his reply was very nasty, too unsavory to post here.  


*One expert says that the screaming which started before the 911 call was for approximately 40 seconds with the recording capturing 18 seconds of it. So if it was T that was screaming fearing he'd be shot then it took Z 40 seconds to shoot him which is absurd-unless T was struggling with Z for the gun. But eyewitness John Good saw no gun or struggle for it.








Note to reader:


Franklin claims to be a retired police officer.


The Zimmerman family raised a sociopath and a murderer. But you don't hear the Martin family complaining about how George was raised.  

Define the term "sociopath" then let's see if Zimmerman fits it.



Personality disorder resulting in antisocial behavior, i.e. Killing somebody because you are losing a fistfight, you started, getting violent fights with family members and others, and demonstrating a complete lack of empathy which is the subject of the original article. He is as close to the definition of s sociopath as you can find.  

LOL!!! Is being the captain of a community watch program-concerned about the safety and security of your neighbors from criminals and predators-an example of antisocial behavior? Is defending the rights of a homeless black man from a beating he took from the son of a policeman an example of anti-social behavior? Is participating in the mentoring program for poor black kids-making them part of your household at your expense-an example of anti-social behavior? What is anti-social or sociopathic about these things?

George Zimmerman Racism Charges False, He Helped Blacks

Franklin  ApolloSpeaks   

First if you recall he failed his psychological exam to become a police officer, and just what is the standard it takes to be a member even Captain of the community watch besides oh yeah, nothing! Other the willingness to do the job and oh by the way, he was told by dispatch to leave Trayvon Martin alone. But of course, he didn't. If you think sociopaths run around all day frothing at the mouth, then you are sadly misinformed. It is precisely the reason local law enforcement officers said he would have problems and he has. Multiple claims of violence against two girl friends. An arrest for assault on a peace officer. Arrests in other matters related to anger, the inability to hold a steady job...this moron is a textbook case.

Because Z had years of experience as a community watchman before moving to Twin Lakes, and was working on an associates degree in criminal justice, he was chosen by the Twin Lakes association to coordinate with Sanford PD the creation of the watch program-I believe it was his idea. The training he received from police allowed for watchmen to trail suspects at a safe distance so they could pinpoint their location when police arrived. Z had done this dozens of times in the past (calling in suspects trailing them) without incident. The dispatcher who told Z that he didn't need him to follow T wasn't a cop. He said at the trial what he said to Z was only a "suggestion not an order" which he lacked the authority to give.

Trial turns to Zimmerman's neighborhood-watch role-USA Today

ApolloSpeaks    The Franklin 

Z's record as a watchman and good neighbor were exemplary as neighbors testified. No one testified that Z was a sociopath or violent man. Neighbors (black and white) spoke highly of him. Rare outbursts of anger, passion or violence does not make one a sociopath or a violent man. A violent person is habitually violent. That wasn't the peaceful, cool-headed George Zimmerman.

Z's run in with the law and arrests were brought up by prosecutors at his bond hearing. The judge dismissed them as "run of the mill." This included pushing an undercover cop in a bar.

At the time of the incident Z was steadily employed as an insurance underwriter for All State (?) making at least $40k a year. On balance Z is a good, decent, authority respecting, law-abiding man trying to do the right thing as relatives, friends and neighbors testified. Calling him a textbook sociopath is a laughable, unwarranted smear born from blind hate not facts.

Ah so you confirmed my point. It was HIS idea to be community liaison. In short he got the job because he was the one who wanted to do it. (Good lord even Barney Fife got hired). As for the judge saying this not unusual behavior, in an arraignment court, it probably isn't. But at trial and outside in the real world, it's highly unusual. I noticed you ignored the point about him failing his psyche test (whatcha want to bet he failed more then one? I used to be a cop and you usually test with multiple agencies.). Finally as to him disregarding the dispatchers instructions, you ignore the fact that suggestion or not, the suggestion was correct. Had he followed that suggestion, we would not be here now and it tells you a great deal about his decision making and I will bet why he failed his psychs. He has repeatedly demonstrated his lack of empathy by posting pictures of Trayvon Martins dead body and succeeded in getting himself banned from Twitter. He could have kept his job and returned to his job, but instead he tried to go on a victory tour. Also he lied about getting a job as a security guard. If this is normal to you trust me, it's not normal to the rest of us including the investigating officers at Martins murder who testified that they thought Zimmerman lied. If you recall Zimmerman claimed that Martin was peeping in Windows and no such evidence was found on the dew soaked ground by the windows 
Supposing Zimmerman was the most miserable low life bastard ever to walk this earth. It makes absolutely no difference to the fact that he was the victim of a vicious eye witnessed criminal attack where he was provably in extreme duress genuinely fearing for his life. Even the lowest form of human pond scum has the inalienable right of self-defense which the weak, slow, flabby, unathletic Z (he earned a grade of "1" for MMA) was exercising when he stopped with lethal force the physically stronger, fleet footed, athletic Trayvon from possibly killing him. If only Trayvon had kept running when he easily lost the tortoise that was following him and went home (there was nothing stopping him but himself) he'd be alive today, right?
Excuse me but the that is pathetic. Martin wasn't doing anything wrong. All he knew was that some nutcase was following him. He had every right to defend himself and be where he was. It was Zimmerman playing Barney Fife that caused the problem. The neighborhood watch is supposed to observe and report. Not to confront anybody. He was told to stay away. He consciously disregarded the instructions and was legitimately Martin perceived him as a threat and responded. But for Zimmerman's behavior none of this would have happened .

And excuse me, but Martin was in the wrong place at the wrong time doing exactly the wrong things to make him look suspicious: not walking home, but wandering around aimlessly for 40 minutes in the rain moving between buildings-some of which might have been burglarized as Twin Lakes had been recently plagued by a string of break ins. Hell when Z phoned police about T it was 7:09 PM 45 minutes after he left 7-11.

Any watchman would have found T suspicious and did everything that Z did: trail him at a distance to observe and report for police, then go look for him when he bolted and disappeared (he could have easily stayed that way if he chose to) thinking he was headed toward the back exit of Twin Lakes. BTW, There's zero evidence that Z wanted to confront T. Indeed, he could have done so at the get go when he first spotted him at 7:09. But instead of leaving his car for a confrontation he waits till T walks away then follows him at a safe distance according to the rules. And when T bolted and disappeared how could Z confront him when he didn't know where he was?

The police dispatcher at the trial said he had zero authority to tell Z what to do; and when he said "we don't need you following T" he testified that it was only a suggestion.

Up until T's sneak attack of Z (the only thing that makes sense as six jurors believed from the evidence) he was doing what any watchman would have done. And when T attacked Z overpowering him knocking him to the ground then beating him Z, genuinely fearing for his life (proved by the extreme duress of his screams) took out his gun to equalize things and shot T to stop him.

Why did T stop running and decide to confront Z? Rachel Jeantel told Piers Morgan that she and T thought that Z the "creepy ass cracka" might be a homosexual predator out to rape him. T's extreme gangsta mentality and machismo couldn't tolerate that. As gangstas and gang bangers stereotype gays as unmanly feminine sissies T thought that kicking Z's butt would be a cinch.


Again you are incorrect. Martin had every right to o be where he was. Constitutional rights work two ways not one. And now the defense changes fr OK k he was peeping into windows to "he was wandering aimlessly". We which I might remind you was Martin's right to do, noting that he fact that he was on the phone at the time. That the suggestion was a suggestion is irrelevant. The advice was correct and Zimmerman should have followed it. Again it goes to the absolutely atrocious decision making skills of this sociopath that shows why he was rejected for police work more than once and why he's at fault here. The bottom line is this. Martin didn't have to be anywhere except where he wanted to be. Martin didnt have to flee because he wasn't doing anything wrong. In the recitations of the facts, you have listed inconsistnt motivations one of which waa likely a clumsy lie by Zimmerman to cover his bad behavior. I.e. Martin was looking into windows and now he was just wandering. It shows completely why Zimmerman couldn't even get a job as a rent a cop which by the way he also lied about.

And Z had every right to suspect T might be up to no good and report him to police; and had every right to follow him and then look for him when he bolted. And what is absolutely indisputably clear from Z's 911 call is his overarching concern for the safety and security of Twin Lakes as he mentioned to the dispatcher the recent break ins by young black men as being the motive for his call-this is at variance with your laughable, irrational, unfactual, hate driven characterization of Z as a "sociopath."

The first violation of rights was T's criminally attacking Z and quickly overpowering him as eyewitness John Good saw and heard with his own eyes and ears (after the scuffle began). Z using his gun was the last resort when his cries for help (recorded on tape and heard by many) went unanswered.

Z's "lies" are nothing compared to the Martins stirring up a national lynch mob of crazed bloodthirsty leftists based on the complete fabrication that Z was a sociopathic racist killer who hunted down Trayvon and killed him in cold blood. If the Martins had one iota of integrity they would have refrained from rushing to judgment and said "we will not judge Z until the trial and all the facts are known." That is the American way of justice. Not stirring up an angry lynch mob on lies.

And as it turned out no one (the Sanford PD, FBI, DOJ and local and state prosecutors) could discover a single racist bone in Z's "sociopathic" body. After 33 months without finding a hint of racism Obama's DOJ returned the life saving gun that Z used in self-defense against Trayvon. And after the millions made by the Martins on their son's death (stirring up all that racial hatred on a lie) Z is right to sell the gun and stick it to his lying, sick, divisive, race obsessed, moronic leftist enemies.

If I were Donald Trump I'd be jumping all over the opportunity to stir up one hell of a controversy and the rage of the crazy race deranged left by buying the gun that saved George Zimmerman's life from Trayvon Martin for a million bucks. In fact, from what Zimmerman has horribly suffered since he escaped being killed or severely crippled by "Saint Trayvon," one of several brutal holy martyrs of the fascist Black Lives Matter mob, he deserves far more; and I wish I had it to give him.
The good news is as of yesterday morning the life saving gun (whose single fatal justified shot four years ago was heard across the nation and world) has returned to the auction block at United Gun Group for sale after the listing was suspended due to sabotage. An army of anti-Zimmerman trolls with fake bids from phony accounts stormed the site and skyrocketed the price to $65 million. How I wish that it was real as the anti-Zimmerman hate industry over the years probably earned ten times that sum.
 Indeed, exploiting the death of Trayvon and using the race card against Z (demonizing him as a racist killer of an innocent unarmed black teen) the liberal news and opinion media (TV mags, newspapers and on line blogs) rushing to judgment soon after the shooting made tens and millions boosting ratings, subscriptions and hits. Also cashing in big time were the NAACP, race pimps and hustlers like Jessie Jackson and Reverend Al (who got multiple invites to the White House), and the New Black Panthers which put a $10k bounty (see) on Z's bashed in head (surely boosting its racist membership by thousands). 
Not letting the controversy go to waste the great "post-racial" liar and divider-in-chief got into the act pandering to the anti-Zimmerman mob during 2012 race by posthumously adopting Trayvon as the son that could have been. And let's not forget Sabrina and Tracy Martin, Trayvon's divorced, grieving parents, weeping all the way to the bank profiting hugely from his death by winning a $1 million wrongful death suit against the homeowners association where their boy (not wrongfully) was killed (see). And not content with the million they made the Martins trademarked Trayvon's name to earn cash on Trayvon merchandise: CDs, DVDs, t-shirts and bumper stickers (see).
Calling for action: Supporters have made a plethora of different t-shirts, all with the same essential message
 Indeed, from the media to the President to Trayvon's mom and dad one and all enriched themselves immensely by vilifying Z as the racist killer of the century-until Darren Wilson took his place and the cycle of leftist insanity started all over again....but this time more violently.
Trayvon's parents cashing in on his death.
But the racially mixed partly black Z who was deprived of a normal life, lost his wife and took a huge financial hit* (because of the crime that his skin was too white)
 is excoriated as a cruel, heartless sociopath deserving of death for selling his gun on the internet. And the irony is it was returned to him after the Justice Dept. concluded a 33 month investigation that predictably couldn't find a hint of racism in the evil Z.  It's mind-boggling.
*At the time of the Martin shooting Z was as an insurance underwriter  (making between $35,000 to $77,000 a year), while working  on an associate degree in criminal justice in Seminole State College. That would make his loses to date substantial.
If I were Donald Trump I'd buy Z's gun for a big enough sum to give him the financial security he deserves and needs; and I'd carry it on me throughout the campaign proudly showing it off at rallies to remind Americans what the Left is about and that they tried to destroy an innocent man who was doing his job protecting his community from a potential predator. Black lives only matter when non-blacks kill blacks. When that happens it's "Kill Cops Burn Down Shops" like they did in Ferguson, Baltimore, New York and elsewhere.
Over the weekend as I was debating Zimmerman's innocence with lefties on disqus I'd get comment after comment faulting Z with the familiar refrain that in following Trayvon he was disobeying police who ordered him to stand down, as he was told on the so-called 911 tape. But the voice he heard was that of a dispatcher not a cop who had no authority to order him to do squat.
But as I researched this I learned something important that I never knew and that will be new to most of you. Sure if Z had stayed in his car and not followed T that night there would have been no shooting; and T would possibly be alive today-but only if some other potential victim like Z hadn't killed him in self-defense as T had a violent heart and was on a bad path. But what I learned is that Z exiting his vehicle and trailing T at a safe distance (he had no desire to confront him) was perfectly acceptable to the Sanford police and was encouraged by them-to assist them in keeping track of suspects until they arrived.  You can read about it HERE.


George Zimmerman is making news again and the mad, crazed, race obsessed ("Kill Cops Burn Down Shops") Zimmy-hating lynch mob Left is going ballistic. This time it's over the gun that the luckily armed neighborhood watchman used to save his life when Trayvon Martin (thinking Z might be a gay predator out to rape him) viciously tried to ground and pound him into utter unconsciousness and death.
Last week Z put the gun (a 9-millimeter Kel-Tec PF-9 pistol) on the auction block for sale to the highest bidder, and leftist heads exploded across the net with moral outrage. Calling Z an unconscionable sociopath cynically exploiting TM's death for personal profit and gain the Left conveniently forget that Obama did practically the same thing in 2012-when during the election he ignorantly said (pandering for the anti-Zimmerman vote) that if he had a son he would look like Trayvon. (Does anyone think Obama would let his eldest daughter date such a thug?)
But that's not the worst or best of it. Pouring gas on the new outrage he's sparked, Z said that a portion of the proceeds would go to "fighting violence by the Black Lives Matter movement against police officers, combating the anti-gun rhetoric of Hillary Clinton and ending the career of state attorney Angela Corey," who led Zimmerman's politicized prosecution (which should never have been).
Yes it's true that  Z is exploiting Martin's death for money. But who can justly blame him? Z can't get a job or live a normal life and go out in the public as he's too big a target for leftist black violence. Truth is if Z were black he'd be unknown to us and be living like he did prior to killing Martin. The media not Z is to blame for his seemingly desperate financial state. From the start because Z wasn't black the media chose to demonize him and sensationalize Martin's death as a racist killing of an unarmed angelic black kid shot in cold blood, as if it were a KKK execution.
But amazingly and ironically Z loved black people. His mother's granddad was a Peruvian black man; he dated a black girl in high school and took her to the prom; he went into business with a black friend, and compassionately took two underprivileged black girls into his home and mentored them at his expense-as the program had run out of funds. Furthermore, Z rallied to the cause of a black homeless man who was beaten with impunity by the son of a Sanford policeman. At his own expense Z printed and handed out fliers trying to raise public awareness about the crime. He even went to the local NAACP to enlist its help, but to no avail-they sympathized with the victim but lacked the funds to help him (see and see). What kind of mentally ill sociopath is this? It wasn't this responsible but flawed captain of the Twin Lakes community watchmen who was the sociopath; it was Trayvon Martin who came within inches of murdering him.
And that brings me to a fascinating topic-the big story that's going unreported mentioned in the title: the failure of Obama's Justice Department to nail the so-called "racist" Z with a hate crime. It was recently in late April or earlier this month that Z took possession of his life saving gun that equalized the difference between TM's superior strength and his weakness (Z's martial arts guru said he couldn't fight his way out of a paper bag). For over two and a half years the DOJ kept the gun as a crucial piece of evidence in their investigation of Z for possibly violating TM's civil rights. Indeed, five days after Z was acquitted of second degree murder and manslaughter the DOJ ordered Sanford police to turn over every last bit of the 250 pieces of evidence that were used in the trial-the most important being Z's life saving gun (see).
And after a 33 month investigation that turned up squat the DOJ returned Z's gun, thus tacitly admitting that Z's gun wasn't used in a hate crime against Martin. In other words, the DOJ joined Sanford police and the Florida State prosecutor in failing to find a scintilla of evidence nailing Z to any crime. And yet the compassionate, empathetic, social justice Left still wants to see Z burn in hell flat broke and ruined for killing Trayvon Martin in self-defense. Black lives only matter when non-blacks kill blacks.   



Idiot president bowing to Japanese emperor beacuse he couldn't humiliate America by apologizing for nuking Japan in Hiroshima.

Let there be no illusions why Obama is planning to visit Hiroshima during his up coming trip to Japan in two weeks: it's to tacitly and symbolically with unspoken words do what he wanted to do during his first trip to Japan in 2009: humiliate America by apologizing for winning the war with the nuking of Hiroshima and Nagasaki-as if that were an evil, immoral and criminal way to win, and there was a better and less destructive alternative at the time.
In a secret September 3, 2009 cable (revealed in a WikiLeaks dump) and sent to then Secretary of State Hillary Clinton, it reported that Japan's Vice Foreign Minister Mitoji Yabunaka told U.S. Ambassador John Roos that "the idea of President Obama visiting Hiroshima to apologize for the atomic bombing during World War II was a nonstarter [unacceptable] (see)." And because the Japanese government was sternly opposed to it (no Japanese government since the end of WWII ever demanded an apology for the bombings as most Japanese blame themselves for it) Obama did what he saw was the next best thing to humiliate us, and publicly bowed to the Japanese emperor (a mere figurehead with no political power) like he did to the Saudi King earlier that year. Now it appears he wants to take this bow a step further and visit Hiroshima itself: Harry Truman is rolling in his grave.
What right-minded President knowing what he knows today would have refrained from giving the same order Truman gave to decimate Hiroshima and Nagasaki? The aim of war is victory over the enemy; and that means crushing his will to defeat you. But Japan's will and determination to continue the war (which it started at Pearl Harbor) wasn't broken and crushed until Nagasaki. And thank God for that. For we had run out of nukes and didn't have a third and fourth for Kyoto and Osaka or some other Japanese cities. For the Japanese had four million men under arms and a militia force of a million or more citizens ready to defend Japan to the death from invasion (see).
An unbowed General MacArthur with defeated Japanese emperor.
After the conventional fire bombing of Tokyo where tens and thousands died the Japanese Emperor and his military chiefs held firm willing to endure more Tokyos hoping for an eventual invasion where they'd be victorious in repelling the enemy with a massive suicidal army if he dared such a thing. After the nuking of Hiroshima they were still unbowed and committed to war believing that an invasion was coming. But Nagasaki changed all that: it broke the emperor's will and brought him to his senses fearing the nuclear devastation of his country with nothing left but radioactive ashes and dust. And the weak, appeasing leftist nutjob in the White House wants to apologize for this? Apologizing for winning the war and saving millions of lives (including 300,000 POWs) from a land invasion? If Obama were President in 1945 the war would have dragged on for years at a staggering cost in lives and treasure.
Again I say, as I did the other day, with good reason Obama's the most despised Commander-in-Chief by our military and Defense Department in US history. With good reason a mere 15% of our service men and women respect him while 55% utterly loath him. With good reason not one, not two, but three secretaries of defense quit on him finding his incompetence, weakness, ignorance and stupidity intolerable (see and see).
Too bad President Truman didn't listen to General MacArthur and nuked the Norks to end the Korean War. If he had done that the Korean Peninsula would be united today into a one, prosperous, peaceful democratic state; and hundreds and millions of North Koreans wouldn't have perished from socialist poverty and starvation; and millions of children wouldn't now be suffering from malnutrition and stunted growth. If only Truman had listened to MacArthur and didn't go wobbly on the use of nukes-it was Eisenhower who ended the war by threatening to use them.



This regressive blundering jackass has gone from stupidly and needlessly pulling our troops from Iraq to pledging that they'd never return under his watch to returning them only in a "non-combat advisory capacity" to them engaging in combat with ISIS-which he denies. This is just one piece of an overall pattern of incompetency and lies not seen before in a US president. 

No President in American history has commanded so little respect and been more despised by the US military and Defense Department  than Barack Hussein Obama: the weak, pathetic, apologizing appeaser who disgraces the White House with his dithering indecisiveness, serial lies and gutless leadership from behind. So loathed is Obama by our service men and women that only a mere, abysmally low 15% think well of him; while a disgusted, demoralized 55% are wretchedly sick to their stomachs at the mention of his name (see). And who can blame them? Just look at Obama's dismal record on the world stage and the harm that he's done to our soldiers, this country, the Middle East and the world and tell if you don't want to puke. 

In 2009 Obama stupidly trying to reset relations with Russia, which were damaged by the Russo-Georgian War, butt kissed committed neo-imperialist Vladimir Putin and rewarded him for Georgia by canceling a missile defense system for Poland and Eastern Europe. And how did Putin repay Obama and show his thanks? By giving traitor Edward Snowden refuge in Russia, invading the Ukraine, annexing Crimea and then militarily intervening in Syria to defend Bashir Assad (the greatest mass murderer of the 21st century) from US backed rebels who are now being crushed. 
... counter terrorism head: FBI never called Ft.Hood 'Workplace Violence
Offending the common sense of our soldiers and troops Obama called the jihadist massacre at Ft. Hood an act of "workplace violence" as if the Moslem killer of 13 soldiers (and an unborn child) differed little from a disgruntled employee working in the private sector seeking revenge on workers and management. And compounding this politically correct lunacy Obama called terrorist acts in general "man caused disasters" as if in essence they were no different from deadly auto accidents, train wrecks and the like.  
Bergdahl prisoner swap
But even more outrageous was Obama lauding the traitorous deserter Bowe Bergdahl as a hero who served his country with "honor and distinction" (who caused the death of soldiers trying to find him) and was swapped for five Taliban commanders hell-bent on returning to the battlefield to kill more Americans. 
Moreover, as Robert Gates tells us (see), Obama surged our troops in Afghanistan and sent them into battle without believing in or supporting the mission-while giving them restrictive Rules of Engagement that favoring the enemy over our troops has tragically killed dozens of them.
Worse still he pulled our troops from Iraq (handing the country over to Iran) when he had the overwhelming leverage (as Leon Panetta says) of $60 billion in Iraq Reconstruction Funds to keep them there on US terms. And now we're back fighting in Iraq for a third time in 25 years (see).
Wanting to look tough Obama threatened to punish Syria's Bashir Assad if he dared cross the red line of chemical weapon attacks against his people; upon crossing the line Obama did nothing except sign a worthless disarmament treaty with Assad to dismantle his chemical weapons. Not only has Assad refused to honor this deal but showing his contempt for Obama and daring him to act he has since, it appears, used chemical weapons again (see and see).
After this fiasco Obama then blindly trusting the radical, terrorist, "death to America" mullahs (who have killed hundreds of US troops in Iraq and continue to do so in Afghanistan with their support of the Taliban) he rewards them with billions for signing a provably worthless nuke deal which they are violating at every turn while humiliating the US when they can (see).  
Obama deserted Egyptian President and ally Hosni Mubarak favoring the radical anti-Western Moslem Brotherhood to replace him. And   laughably he said that the war to depose Kaddafi in Libya (an ally like Mubarak) was a "kinetic military action" not a real war- because it was illegal and violated the War Powers Act (see).  And now Libya is a failed state overrun by ISIS, al Qaida and other extremists plotting to bring death and destruction to America and Europe.
In 2012 Obama declared victory in the Global War On Terror and that al Qaida was completely decimated when (as he knew from military intelligence) they were metastasizing and growing in power and influence across the world.
Obama dismissed ISIS as a rag tag army of jay vee jihadists when they were defeating US trained Iraqi troops and expanding their caliphate deep inside Iraq. 
As reported by Fox News Obama insanely turned the US military into a personal laboratory for politically correct social experiments..... going so far as having ROTC cadets wear high-heeled women's shoes for sensitivity training (see).
Obama regards the alarmist, doomsday, pseudo-science of catastrophic, man-made global warming as a greater threat to our national security than global terrorism or nuclear proliferation-and he forces the military to give it the same absurd priority (see).
Obama has drastically downsized the US military to pre-World War II levels (see) and has been deliberately diminishing US power while claiming America is stronger than ever in its history-when we're no longer respected, feared or trusted around the world like we used to be, ought to be and need to be. 
As Obama dismantles the Pax America and the world grows more unstable, strife-torn and dangerous (with the Middle East on the verge of a sectarian cataclysm) Obama claims that he's been a superb foreign policy and military president-and points to our improved image in the world as proof. You can't get anymore delusional than this.

    Charles Keating’s Death Part of Iraq Tragedy: Losing Victory Bush ...





    66402 B

 And the great blundering amateur goes on and on leading this nation deeper and deeper into peril. What we've seen from this president is fecklessness and reckless incompetence on a level and scale unmatched in US history that has so disgusted the Defense Department that three of its secretaries quit on him-and the fourth refuses to join him in advancing the lie that we're not at war in Iraq again. Indeed, when Aston Carter contradicting his worthless boss that the death of Navy Seal Charles Keating was a combat death from a fire fight with ISIS he was defiantly raising his middle finger to him (like his frustrated predecessors sometimes did) and dared him to fire him for insubordination. Carter has too much self-respect to make himself look foolish for an ass clown president who's leading America into economic, military and geopolitical decline and the world into chaos and war. And Hillary Clinton, an architect of Obama's foreign policy, praises him as a great commander-in-chief, and pledges to continue his dangerous policies of peace through weakness, appeasement and retreat. 






Let me answer my question with a question: Will the New York born Donald Trump be to HIllary Clinton in November what the New York born Bernie Sanders was to Hillary in the historic Indiana primary?  Indeed, Bernie Sanders who is the populist Donald Trump of the left-running an analogous mad-as-hell campaign reflecting the anger and fear of millions of discontent Americans worried about the direction of the country and what they're suffering economically-went into the Indiana primary as the certain to lose underdog. Every poll showed Sanders losing Indiana to Hillary by as much as 13%. But Sanders surprisingly defeated Hillary by just under five points-an amazing upset victory that rattled Clinton who had hoped that a big victory would finally bring Sanders to his senses and force him to quit the race like Cruz and Kasich were to do. But Sanders won stiffening his resolve to continue his Occupy Wall Street crusade against the "greedy capitalist Wall Street banksters" and their "rigged criminal bloodsucking economy" to the bitter socialist end. That means low energy, visibly tiring, lying Hillary having perhaps to battle both Sanders and Trump right up to the Democratic convention in late July. Given her poor stamina and intestinal strength she could be totally exhausted by then worn down by the constant attacks of both men. 
But the big question is this: is Indiana what providence has in store for Hillary on November 8th? Does populist Bernie's surprising Indiana victory foreshadow an unlikely Trump victory with the billionaire triumphing over everything?  Will Trump who is the near absolute underdog right now losing to Hillary in most every poll (Rasmussen the exception) come from behind overcoming his negatives to beat her with Indiana as the providential sign?
Trump amassed an impressive 588,000 votes in Indiana outdoing Sanders by 253,000 and Hillary by 284,000 votes. In fact, Trump had 51,000 voted less than Sander's and Hillary combined. Is Indiana a sign of things to come for Trump? To put it another way, if Trump were Bernie Sanders running against Hillary in the Democratic race would he be the front runner right now? I believe that he would. Add Trump's charisma and forceful personality to Bernie Sanders and Hillary would be trailing him, as Sanders is now.
Aside from Hillary lacking the energy and strength to keep pace with the tireless, indefatigable, unpredictable, non-ideological Trump-who'll run to her left when necessary (appealing to Hillary hating anti-globalist Sanders supporters) as easily as he'll run to her right (to satisfy conservatives)-she has to be worrying, as her husband is, about the state of the fragile, weakening U.S. economy. She has to be worrying that the worst recovery since the Great Depression could devolve into another Great Recession. With good reason Bill Clinton is very nervous about the collapsing world order, and Europe's worsening economic and refugee and terrorist woes, "dragging" our economy into another crisis before Election Day. Indeed, the last three-quarters ominously saw GDP growth decline with the last quarter dropping to just under a full point to a mere, sickly, pathetic .5%. That is troubling.
Quarter-to-Quarter Growth in Real GDP
Declining US productivity and a global economic slowdown points to a coming recession for our mismanaged high debt, stagnant wage, inflationary economy. 
Complicating things for the Clintons is the rise in the cost of living (aka "invisible inflation" see) aggravating the crisis of the disappearing middle class with more working Americans unable to make ends meet and running out of credit sinking into poverty. Indeed, the cost of food, gasoline, clothing, car insurance, healthcare costs, cable TV, cell phone and internet service and more are rising while wages remain stagnant and the economy produces millions of lousy, low paying and part-time jobs. It is a fact that Americans are making less and having to spend more-and the drive to increase the minimum wage means raising the cost of labor and consequently the cost of living even more. An idiotic idea as Trump understands.
Even if there's no official recession before November if the present economic downturn continues anger, fear and discontent will swell with millions more Americans calling for a radical change of direction. Hillary vowing to stay the course and continue Obama's failed policies and legacy will badly hurt her credibility with independent voters wanting change. Her only defense will be to blame the economy on Republican obstructionism and pre-Obama (Bush's) policies trying to frighten voters that Trump spells a return to the past.  But Trump the anti-elite Washington outsider who has relentlessly attacked the Bush presidency and GOP on everything from the economy to foreign policy will blame both Democrats and Republicans for the mess. This will give him credibility with the Indies as a post-partisan candidate independent of both parties who'll be focused as President on serving the interests of the people. While Hillary blaming Republicans for the mess (when her husband was the fountainhead of the 2008 housing crash) will look  petty, divisive and partisan-too Democratic to be president of all the people.
Hillary warns voters that Trump is a "loose cannon" who fires indiscriminately in all directions not caring who he hits. But he is more like a nuclear bomb who could make the Clinton campaign look like Hiroshima before election day, and Hillary like the walking dead sapped of her energy and strength. Which would be terrific.


The new face of the GOP

On the 16th day of June 2015 (16 days from the publication of Ann Coulter's book on illegal immigration and 16 days before an illegal killed Kate Steinle) Donald Trump (16 months to election day 2016) announced his run for 1600 Pennsylvania Ave, making illegal immigration and border security the focus of his campaign.
Trump was half way there. For on April 26th (the 316th day of Trump's campaign and the 116th day or 16th week of 2016, see and see) Donald Trump swept five northeastern primary states virtually making him the GOP's presumptive presidential nominee (which he boldly declared he was on the following day* with most Republican voters afterwards agreeing with him, see). Indeed, as Trump is striving to be the 45th President his landslide victory on April 26th auspiciously fell on the 45th week of his candidacy.
*April 27 was 196 days from election day. 196 is a variant of the number 16: 1+9+6 = 16 (see).
But it wasn't until last night's victory in Indiana that Trump actually and effectively secured the nomination as GOP Chairman Reinice Priebus conceded that he was indeed the presumptive nominee. As the number 16 from the start of his unconventional campaign has been propitious for Trump it was nowhere in sight last night except in two small places: Indiana, the 19th state to join the Union did so in the 16th year of the 19th century*; and with a population of 6.6 million people Indiana ranks 16th in population (see).
*December 11, 1816.
Moreover, on his way to seizing the GOP nomination Trump defeated 16 party candidates with Ted Cruz, the last obstacle to victory, conceding defeat yesterday and suspending his campaign. When Cruz, age 45, called it quits it was the 16,570th day of his earthly existence (see). An amazing coincidence for the night Trump triumphed and won 57 delegates .
