Is Zimmerman a Murderer or Will We See "Palestinian Justice?"

PRISON JUMPS FOR ZIMMERMAN REVEALED?

 

…by  Gordon Duff, Senior Editor

 

This is our question.  Is the “Zimmerman killing” the first sign of the Middle East’s most secretive and shameful crime, the apartheid killings in Israel coming home? 

Zimmerman, of mixed Jewish and Hispanic origin is now the “poster boy” used by the ADL, AIPAC and the SPLC for the right to simply shoot African Americans down like dogs, or so it is playing out for all to see. 

 

The photo above is curious enough in itself.  Is Zimmerman in a prison jumpsuit or is this just his fashion sense?  We might then ask how many people photographed in a prison jumpsuit are allowed to carry weapons?

PRISON JUMPS? NOTE ABC NEWS "COLOR ENHANCEMENT" TO HELP "COVER THE TRAIL"

The Zimmerman photo is from a 2005 arrest.  Zimmerman has had no record of employment since 2008 and has, according to news stories, been running a “one man watch” organization in his “spare time.”

 

MISINTERPRETED “WITNESS REPORTS”

Statements given indicate that Zimmerman chased, first with a vehicle, then on foot, armed with a deadly weapon, an innocent bystander.  Claims are made Zimmerman was “decked.”  This is legally interpreted as Trevon “standing his ground against an unprovoked assault by an armed assailant.”

Zimmerman wasn’t issued a badge and warrant card when he got his prison jumpsuit and his “self appointed ” one man vigilante group made him the one that looked like a criminal suspect, preparing to rob someone, not the other way around. 

It was Zimmerman who was acting suspiciously.  Why do you think police are issued such things as uniforms and police cars?  They are also trained, although that doesn’t always seem to work well, not with some anyway.

 

“WATCH” OR GANG/MILITA ORGANIZER – ZIMMERMAN?

Zimmerman supposedly belongs to a local militia group or neighborhood watch.  Problem is, nobody has recognized this group, they aren’t constables as in Texas, they  have no list of membership.  Any legitimate “watch” is subjected to background checks by police, which are part of the public record.  No such record exists.  Does this “watch” exist?  Does a record exist?

With no employment record, who paid for the SUV?  Who bought the gun?  Who paid for the gas?  In fact, how did Zimmerman live at all?

We can’t even tell if this is a case of simple mental illness, a gang related killing or a drug deal gone bad.  Every word we have heard is a lie, and thousands around the country are protesting, very rightly, for truth.  As officials empowered and sworn to protect the public have withheld the truth, derailed justice, who is investigating them?

Who is Mr. Zimmerman?  What is his employment record, driving record, his school grades, is he supporting a family, was his family a victim of crime or is he a local gang member?  Since he became a national celebrity, why has his history been “secretized” as though he were a Bush family member?

CRIMINAL ATTIRE AS WORN BY GEORGE "W" BUSH

Where is the press?  Are they simply remiss or is it that there is some reason that all those trails, so easy to follow on such a huge story have been put on back burner, where so many questions that people around the world are burning to learn about have been selected for censorship by the news?

Maybe Zimmerman is person of sterling reputation, an Eagle Scout, National Honor Society, working 3 jobs, no police record, beloved by all.

Is someone hiding something?

Even David Duke, the famous critic of Israel, got caught in bed, albeit accidentally, with his most powerful enemies.  Race is that touchy an issue, that powerful in the US and something we have so much denial about.

Few nations in the world know that American politics are entirely “black and white” once you scratch the surface.  We now simply have a new twist to things and few seem to understand.

Are they hiding behind election year politics?  Then again, we return to Sanford, Florida and the neighborhood watch. Who is this secret group, who funds them and how do they fit into the money scheme of local politics, long known to be “crooked as hell” in Sandford, Florida?

We have other questions.  If the scenario plays out as some thing, victim begging for his life, Zimmerman pumping bullets into him, as though a classic psychopath, what does this tell us?

This is almost classic police behavior, a “potential suspect” pulls out what ends up being his mobile phone and is shot 25 times by police, highly trained, wearing body armour, who claim they “feared for their lives.”

We don’t know this to be true, we, the public, have been systematically denied the truth by the intercession of powerful groups that see the “Jewishness” of the name “Zimmerman” and see the potential for fomenting racial divide, a source of profit. 

Some groups named in this article make millions in playing “the race card.”  The victim, as usual, is humanity, is justice, is society.

This is why disclosure, why truth is so important, not “court” truth, the twisted mechanations of a system of laws bought and sold like whores.  We have a small part of the picture, it points a gun at one head, not the victims, but Zimmerman’s.

Secrecy, supposedly “in his name” brings to light our most basic fears.  We fear that the crazed killer is somehow empowered to murder us or our children, protected by a mysterious conspiracy.

Does the ADL, JDL, AIPAC and SPLC represent such a conspiracy?  I would say a resounding “yes!”

MY GANG "COLORS," FELLOW "THUGS" BURIED IN CEMETERIES AROUND THE WORLD

Thus far it seems there has been no legal process, there was no forensic examination, no crime scene photos, no evidence of any kind, simply a police coverup followed the the “temporary” resignation of a police chief.

No arrest?  Of course not, not when we have police pretending that nothing happened, taken by some as though murdering a black child is no more important that bombing a Palestinian school in Gaza?

Is this going too far?  Is it?  I would have said yes until I saw the trail, the  SPLC, the JDL, the ADL, AIPAC and millions in dollars spent spinning this incident which is much like so many other killings, all racial, many apartheid, a rebirth of the lynchings of old, that still go on around the world.

We just don’t hear about it because our news filters it out.  Wonder why?

I listened to all the tapes, Zimmerman and those who called in.  This is what I got.

Voice analysis of the tapes will show that attempts to show Zimmerman as the victim may well reveal a well staged attempt to subvert justice.  I heard an African American voice screaming for help, not the voice of Zimmerman.

This is just my opinion and is easy to prove as we have extensive recordings of Zimmerman and voice-printing is something any news organization can do with a PC.

We then enter the world of conspiracy, obstruction of justice, and accessory to murder for anyone involved in false testimony and it is my opinion that we are hearing some of that, a common tactic when powerful organizations reveal their inner racism, and such organizations are now identified as involved.

Voice prints have gone really high tech

Thus, the first thing I want to see, and the first thing we all should have heard by now, is a voice print analysis of the 9/11 calls.

Failure to have this available indicates that the organs of public reporting have been interfered with, something that also needs looking into.

This is that big a story now, millions are being spent behind the scenes, and I wouldn’t be surprised if the ADL had George Clooney arrested.  Think I am joking?

Those of us who watch justice, as it were, being spooned out in America know this to be the same “lynching society” it was a century ago.

Zimmerman was looking for revenge, seeking a victim because of his feelings of persecution.  No “neighborhood watch” has a right to deal with anything unless they see a crime being committed.

Zimmerman was stalking an individual based on their appearance, wearing a hoodie, frankly what I wear when I travel in Europe in fall and winter, especially on the Riviera where it gets nippy off the Mediterranean.

Mine I have had for many years, I bought it in Canada, lot of dangerous people there, it has the name of a boating team on the front of it.

The most telling aspects of the entire ordeal were the screams of the young victim who, by the sound of it, was probably on his knees being executed.  The audio supplied by those who called in sounded like a gang execution by a cold blooded killer and nothing else.

Why hasn’t there been an arrest? Zimmerman belongs to the Anti-Defamation League and is defended by the Southern Poverty Law Center that purports to exist to defend the poor against the rich.

Our experience is that they are quite the opposite, so much so, that I would see them on “lists.”

When I phoned the NAACP in Washington and asked them what they thought of the SPLC defending Zimmerman, they said they were closely related organizations and knew nothing about it.

It was in every newspaper in the nation at the time.

 

POLITICS, MORALITY AND EXPLOITATION

This is an election year, one where big “Jewish mob money,” the Koch/Adelman cash has all gone GOP while Geithner, Obama’s Secretary of Treasury, makes sure Dem coffers get their share from Wall Street.  We won’t call it blackmail.

What is happening, unseen by too many, is the exploitation of this, positive or not, of the rift between Jewish Americans and Zionist Israel “firsters.” 

If the organizations, ADL, SPLC etc. are correct, then Zimmerman had the right to kill any “goy” for any reason which they would find rationale to defend, though it has brought them out of the closet as “anti-black” and intrinsically racist.

Influence pedaling

This is clearly how the Democratic party and those who recognize the irreversible rift between the US and the Netanyahu government of Israel see it.

It is their job to exploit it by keeping American Jews as Democrats and demonstrating the values of the GOP, looking to Koch and Adelman for “big Jewish cash” while representing political groups traditionally seen as anti-semitic and intolerant.

Groups like MoveOn.org see this as a way of exploiting the inherent racism of the GOP and uniting, during an election year, those fearful of right wing oppression.

The timing, of course, puts this single killing among so many recently, 17 in Afghanistan, 26 in Pakistan, 76 in Norway, a rash of shootings in Germany and the usual mayhem across America.

Things are so serious in Mexico, so dangerous, nobody wants to look at that at all.

That story will remain untold, simply exploited for votes and hate during an election year when the real issues, cheap labor and drugs, is ignored as it has strong but invisible ties to the most important ruling families in America, one of our many “national secrets.”

 

WHY THIS KILLING?

Was this a hate crime?  I say, let a jury decide, one carefully chosen that protects the rights of all, including the victim, and we clearly have a victim here.  Our only question is “what is the crime.”

Claims of defense?  Standing his ground?  No witnesses?  All evidence to the contrary, victim screaming in fear, asking for mercy, admission of intent, police on the line while Zimmerman stalks the victim and ignores police orders, a crime by the way, to stop.

Not a toy - the real McCoy

I have spent as much time carrying weapons, everything from the M 60 machine gun to things I would be jailed for admitting existed.

I recognize the world as a dangerous place and, to some extent, see the need for citizens to band together. However, when it turns into issues of race, it always turns bad.

Zimmerman reminds me of Palestine, and to some extent that colors my own judgement because I see hundreds killed there under similar circumstances, newspapers lie about it and I am seeing those lies again.

Zimmerman is being protected because the “Black Panthers” are out to get him.  This is why, supposedly, he is being defended and has “special rights.”  I suspect all the stories about “black militias” are a cover.

First, let’s deal with the facts.  The only forensic evidence are shell casings, the body of the young boy and the tape recordings of the victim screaming for help, in obvious terror.

What can be assumed is that the victim was being chased by an assailant with a gun drawn, a felony in itself, was cornered, and then shot. Any self defense is on the part of the victim, not the assailant.

Analysis of the audio recordings of Zimmerman indicate a few things.  He is obviously racist.  This is, in itself, not a crime.  Were we to admit it, everyone is racist, so I say, “throw it away.” He admits he saw no crime.  He admits he is assuming potential for crime because he sees a “hoodie.”

This indicates that Zimmerman may require psychiatric examination and very probably should never have been issued a weapons permit.

The police on the phone with him had “that sound” in their voices, like they were dealing with someone “over the edge.”  Their response time, however, as it was obvious that something was terribly wrong with Zimmerman’s unwillingness to take direction from police, needs to be looked into.

Zimmerman has to explain why he shot someone who was begging for his life.

There is no circumstances where you can chase someone, admitted during the police call, run through the streets pointing a gun at an unarmed civilian, an assumption one can make very easily,  and then shoot someone who is obviously trying to hide from what they assume, perhaps rightly so, a jury has to decide, from the murderous assault of a deranged criminal assailant.

POLITICS

The local police and sheriff have not proven capable of dealing with this, leading with the local sheriff temporarily stepping down.  There is probably misconduct in failing to arrest Zimmerman based on evidence, as any other department in the US would have done.

A local Grand Jury would have heard evidence.  However, Florida law enforcement, from region to region is questionable and ethnicity, Jew against African American, is very much part of the mix.

Elected officials looking for Jewish contributions, how most are elected, are influence by such things.  Fear of backlash from the African American community is also a big issue.

When the SPLC and the ADL got involved, this became national politics, stories began to stray from the facts and institutionalized racism became an issue, one that really involved two people, one perhaps heavily armed, delusional, operating clearly outside the law, and the very probable murder of a young man.

Now millions are being spent to “spin” this story to make the victim look like a criminal.

As for Mr. Zimmerman, yes, he should show remorse.  Thus far evidence I have seen indicates that he stalked and then chased down at gunpoint an innocent young man of character and executed him while the victim begged for his life.

Unless diminished capacity can be proven, Mr. Zimmerman faces execution, not exoneration.

He should be scared to death.

There are other issues we could discuss.  What can we do to defend ourselves, do we all need to be lawyers, do we risk our freedom whenever armed and the answer, of course, is yes.

Over 40 years I have, on occasion, faced armed assailants, wartime and otherwise.  As an oldster with sufficient credentials, I sometimes travel at risk, war zones, hot spots, and use security teams, sometimes as many as a dozen or more men.  This relates to me being a target.  It is also a bit embarrassing, having a SWAT team follow me around, while I ride in an armoured car.

However, my wife and I walk through Cairo at midnight, Ankara and Istanbul, Rome or Amman as I am a less than harmless American vacationer and, at times, I reach into that “hoodie” and wish the old Browning HiPower were there, more than one occasion I have had this epiphany.

Do we credit Zimmerman for caring and execute him for one terrible mistake?  Do we brand him a murderer?  Do we look at those who have tried to spin this into something it is not and discredit them, the SPLC, the ADL, or a half dozen other groups?

We have to admit this, local law enforcement, although the officer or 9/11 operator, whomever, on with Zimmerman was competent and correct.  Zimmerman was not, nor was he trained as such.

We must admit we live in a dangerous world and that it is our responsibility to correct it.  We must also admit that police are not the answer.

It is time we looked closely at the dynamic in Sanford, Florida, a town I am not a bit unfamiliar with, and see how such a thing might happen.

Do we jail Zimmerman?  My guess is yes, immediately.  He is to be judged, his story taken into account, subjected to examination compared to evidence and a decision reached.

This is all and no more.

This is the best we can do.  We can’t bring the dead back to life.

Then we look at those who have tried to profit from this, the SPLC, and those who have honestly sought justice also.

We judge them all in the light of day.

Then, perhaps, we might see to it this never happens again.  As for Zimmerman, it is not for me to judge.  I have seen no evidence for a defense thus far but this is why we have trials, why we have laws but it is also why our legal system has failed as trials and laws sometimes, if not often, are subverted as they have been already in Sanford, Florida.

If anything, Zimmerman is made to look more guilty by the misconduct of local officials than anything else as there also seems to be an active cover-up in motion, one that may send others to jail, and, perhaps should.

Many may find themselves in prison because of this.

What Zimmerman told us was that he saw the black community as a threat.  Most of the nations of the world say the same about the State of Israel.   You didn’t know?  This is a different story and yet the same, can a crime that is legal in Israel if the victim is not Jewish be legal in Florida if the victim is not Jewish?

The ADL and SPLC seem to be saying so but in their own underhanded way.

The truth is in a few seconds of recordings, a few photographs and the story of one surviving young man, nowhere else.

It is also a story that goes much further, if we care to admit it, to the Middle East, across America, into the dark hearts of those of more than one race, who look into the face of a stranger and see an enemy.

I’ve heard the tales, tall tales at that.  I have also heard the screams for help, silenced by gunshots.  Can we be convinced this is a simple misunderstanding, a tragedy?  We could have before the coverup began and the lying started.

Now it has gone much further, so much further.  When we know something is really wrong, when there is something bad to cover up, will we expect to hear from Alan Dershowitz next?  Is that much money involved here?

Gordon Duff is a consultant to police organizations around the world and has worked as an investigator on a number of the highest profile criminal cases in our era.

A Personal note:  Having worked more than a few homicide investigations, writing political invective runs against my grain.  I know from experience that what we have heard is probably largely lies, carefully coached.  I can imagine the suffering of everyone involved and the huge fear in injustice the African American community in Sanford fears.

I would make everyone see the cost of this, close up, years of grief, what drives the decision we have seen, real or implied.  Then multiply this times a thousand and see what has been done elsewhere, be it Gaza or Iraq or Pakistan or anywhere a child is killed and someone laughs and turns away.

Just before his heart replacement, the “Cheney one,” from never having had one to now having someone else’s, Cheney was kept from visiting Canada because he faced arrest for war crimes.  We could wonder why the press never mentioned, not giving a heard to a 71 year old, plenty deserve it, but giving a heart to a war criminal, accused in this case, instead of a hundred others.  These aren’t my decisions.

Having real “trigger time,” the power of life and death based on the movement of a finger and cross-hairs over a torso, the reality of life and death escapes too many.  Do we teach “ours” that “not killing” can be more right than killing?  It was a lesson I learned long ago and far far away.

Addendum:

This was an email sent from MoveOn.org, what we secretly know as the finance PAC behind the Democratic Party, the clear majority party in the US.  The defenders of Zimmerman, the SPLC, at one time were totally aligned with MoveOn.

What has changed?  What is the game afoot here?

I am including this for demonstration purposes only and none other:

 

Dear fellow MoveOn member,

I’m a MoveOn member and a mother, and my two sons look like Trayvon Martin.

As parents, we all have to warn our children about the dangers of the world—strangers, bullies, which streets not to walk down. But there’s a special pain in explaining to my sons the suspicion and dangers they face, simply by being young black men.

One month ago today, Trayvon Martin was walking through a gated community in Florida with nothing more than an iced tea and a bag of skittles. But being a young black man in a hoodie made him “suspicious” to George Zimmerman, who got out of his SUV, tracked Trayvon down, and shot him dead.1

On that terrible day, my special pain and fear as a parent became very urgent … and very real. Racial profiling is a sickness in the soul of our nation. It limits our promise. It divides us. And one month ago, it robbed Trayvon Martin of his life.

Trayvon’s story is already inspiring millions in the call for justice and an end to racial violence. It also moved writer/activist Kevin Powell, Akila Worksongs, Jasiri X and the folks at MoveOn and ColorOfChange to record a new powerful video “A Song for Trayvon.” Please watch it and share it with your family and friends to inspire more people to join this growing movement:

http://moveon.org/SongForTrayvon?id=38007-5087576-PfbBy%3Dx&t=2

When my husband shared the news about Trayvon, my eyes welled with tears. I pictured my own two boys innocently walking home, just like Trayvon, and then never seeing them again—never hugging them. It was more than I could bear.

That’s why I started a SignOn petition calling for justice for Trayvon. It’s been signed by more than 500,000 MoveOn members, and I’m delivering it to the Justice Department today. Already, the public pressure from us and our allies is making a difference.

The Justice Department, the State of Florida, and the FBI have launched new investigations, a new state prosecutor has been appointed, and a grand jury date has been set.2 But we need to keep building the call for justice. And we do that by making sure each and every American knows Trayvon’s story.

Click here to watch and share a powerful video about the injustice done to Trayvon Martin.

President Obama said, “if I had a son, he’d look like Trayvon.”3 He might be like Trayvon too, and Trayvon might have been like my two boys; or your son; or friends of your children, joining you at the dinner table.

But Zimmerman couldn’t see past Trayvon’s race and hoodie to the promising young man he was—a football player, a horseback rider, a hero who pulled his father from a burning kitchen.4 Trayvon was young, he was alive, he was beautiful.

All of us sharing Trayvon’s story and calling out for justice are fighting back against racism and senseless violence, so one day we no longer have to fear our child’s walk home in the darkness.

It’s up to us to make sure that every person in America knows what happened to Trayvon and how his death moved us to tears and action. Help us grow this movement by sharing this video with everyone you know.

Click here to watch and share Trayvon Martin’s story.

Thank you for standing up for Trayvon.

Using smartphones for brand marketing

International Herald Tribune November 17, 2010 | TANZINA VEGA

TANZINA VEGA International Herald Tribune 11-17-2010 Using smartphones for brand marketing Byline: TANZINA VEGA Type: News website google iphone app

Google and several brands are testing a smartphone application that sends users to an ad Web site after photographing an ad or label.

A year ago, Google introduced a smartphone application that lets people take photographs of objects and get search results in return. On Tuesday, the company will take that capability into the world of marketing with an experiment allowing five U.S. companies to use the application in their promotional materials.

In the early days of smartphones, people could find out about a movie by entering its title in Google’s browser and searching. Then Google introduced the ability to use voice to enter a question. The Google Goggles visual search application, available in iPhones and Android phones, allows people to take photographs of an object, like a movie poster, and find out more about it in search results.

Google hopes the experiment will give it insight into how people want to interact with a brand. “It’s a learning experiment for us more than an opportunity to make money,” said Michael Slinger, Google’s head of mobile search advertising sales in North America. “We’ve got the distribution and interesting visuals. Everything hinges on whether the users will adopt this or not.”

Google has reason to believe it might pay off. The company says mobile searches on Google have risen 500 percent in the past two years, and the Google Goggles stand-alone application has been downloaded more than 250,000 times. The application was also recently integrated into the Google iPhone application.

While the technology is not new, the idea that brands can begin to play with it is. Google announced its intention to use the Goggles application as part of its mobile advertising strategy at the Interactive Advertising Bureau’s Mixx conference in New York in September.

While a visual search for a Frida Kahlo painting might show results like a Wikipedia page about the artist, companies that are taking part in the Goggles experiment — Buick, Walt Disney, Diageo, T-Mobile and Delta Air Lines — can point people to a Web site for cellphones or other content.

Most of the campaigns have print components, like magazine ads or movie posters, that can be scanned. And though most people using smartphones have gotten used to scanning bar codes on some ads, with Google Goggles people can scan the entire image to get a result. website google iphone app

For Buick, that means having Goggles-enabled ads in magazines. The ads will show the Buick Regal and will run in U.S. publications like Entertainment Weekly, People and Time in November, and Esquire, Fast Company and Forbes in December.

“People still equate us with big floaty, boxy cars that are driven by people in their 70s and 80s,” said Craig Bierley, director of advertising and sales promotions for Buick-GMC. “This is really about positioning Buick in a progressive marketing space so that people think of Buick as a progressive company.”

When a person scans a Goggles-enabled Buick ad, the first result to appear is a mobile site with a video, a photo gallery and the option to find a dealer. The target demographic for Buick is baby boomers.

The company will measure the success of the experiment by tracking information, like how many people watched the video on the mobile site, looked for a dealer or viewed the photo gallery. They will also monitor what people are saying about the brand on social media sites.

Buick will also use poster-size versions of the ads at two events Thursday in New York City. The first will be at the Wired Store, where people can see a Buick Regal poster. Buick will also offer posters at the Out 100 awards ceremony at the IAC Building, where the company will be the presenting sponsor.

Disney will use Goggles-enabled movie posters for the film “Tron: Legacy,” which will be released in December worldwide. The 30,000 posters will be distributed in 5,000 theaters across the United States. People who scan the posters will be taken to a mobile site where they can view a trailer for the film and be directed to Fandango.com or Movietickets.com to buy tickets. The trailer will be the same one that people see in theaters.

T-Mobile has begun running its Goggles ads for the T-Mobile G2 smartphone in publications like Spin, Glamour and Rolling Stone.

Goggles can also use labels from the British beverage company Diageo. People who scan the labels on bottles of certain alcoholic beverages will be taken to a mobile site where they can find things like cocktail recipes and wine reviews.

The most recent partner, Delta Air Lines, is expected to start working on Goggles ads soon.

Mr. Slinger of Google said the company was receiving calls from other companies interested in trying Goggles, including some in the retailing and automotive industries.

    Let me guess, Zimmerman did this as an initiation rite to enter the Illuminati Satanic Death Cult, with the sacrifice of one really awesome beautiful Christian child in a very public way. Isn’t that what they do? Why do they pull out one injustice amidst the countless others worldwide and focus their MSM attention on it? Imagine how refreshing it would be if we could just get the news, the truth and not have to bend our minds trying to figure out the lies.

    • Gerry  March 28, 2012 at 5:35 am

      “Why do they pull out one injustice amidst the countless others worldwide and focus their MSM attention on it?”

      The Romans called it “bread and circuses”. And meanwhile the empire grinds on, or in this case grinds down.

      Wonder what would happen if it was a Black man doing the shooting with a white “victim”, and the Klu Klux Klan put up a bounty?

      Justified or not the killing was a tragedy. But it was only the opening act in a drama that would get The Bard’s adreneline surging.

    • Chris  March 28, 2012 at 6:10 am

      If it was a black man shooting a white person he would have been arrested unlike Zimmerman, with his judge father. You are not a victim. Dont play one, thats the zionists game.

    • Gerry  March 28, 2012 at 7:21 am

      No doubt about it, the Black guy would get arrested. Not even the point here. As far me being a victim don’t know why you would even infer that. Perhaps you didn’t notice the quotation marks (“victim”) or understand their connotation. Nor am I the one on trial here. Just pointing out the same tactics you are. And watching the professional victimologists ply their trade, a craft not limited to the Zionistas!

    • Chris  March 28, 2012 at 7:42 am

      Fair enough, playing the victim is not only a zionist game(look at Sarah Palin afterall. Though with her Israeli flags I wonder about her.), but you must admit they’re the best at it (-: Who else could systematically victimize an entire population and to a degree the whole world and somehow have their terrorist haven country painted as “victims”?

      Ive heard the line-“I wonder why the media doesnt cover it when black people kill white people” a lot in the past few days, as if to infer that the media is quick to paint blacks as victims and whites as aggressors. The exact opposite happens to be true by and large. This is a victim mentality from mostly insecure and/or racist whites and I thought you were suggesting the same thing. My apologies if you were not, I did not mean to infer anything about you.

      Also, it is “bread and circus” in that the media loves to divide and conquer and all sides are doing that with this case. Its a golden oppurtunity for them to do that here and they’re running with it. That doesnt mean that the anger at this killing and lack of arrest is not genuine or understandable.

    • Gerry  March 28, 2012 at 8:07 am

      Agreed! All I can say at this point once again is that this has been blown far of proportion. Who does this benefit? It mainly benefits the Nutz who are running this asylum. “Divide and conquer”, of course! With this incident being indicative of the status quo, in the logical course of events the US will end up making Israel look like Nirvana.

      At this point the only hope I have is that Gordon will get off his duff and really whip out these “Nuclear Scientists” and raise some real stink. My former SWO buddy, A guy who won’t even go to his outhouse without an assault rifle says he doubts it. Prove him wrong please!

    Zimmerman may well be a cop wannabe, a Zionist/ADL/SPLC plant, or just plain stupid. However, that does not mean that the now-dead Martin was a choir boy.
    It is reported that he had been suspended from school due to an empty baggie with some marijuana being found in his backpack at school.
    It is reported that a witness confirmed that Martin attacked Zimmerman, and was punding his head on the curb.
    It is reported that Zimmerman was treated at the scene by paramedics. The treatment involved cuts to the back of his head.

    If the above are true, that changes the dynamic. Why, in this article, is the question “Who is Zimmerman?” asked , but not “Who is Martin?” By the way, Mr. Duff, how many others in America have been unemployed since 2008. Is unemployment now a criminal activity?

    • Chris  March 27, 2012 at 5:32 pm

      Who cares if he was a choir boy though? Isnt that beside the point? Zimmerman stalked him and the kid was obviously scared. Maybe the kid lashed out the obviously bigger and older Zimmerman but quite frankly I would have too if some creep was following me and asking what I was doing etc(as the phone calls show). when I was simply walking down the street talking on the phone with my girlfriend and eating skittles. Martin was a victim. Had Zimmerman minded his own business he would still be alive and Zimmerman wouldnt have gotten punched in the head by a scared kid.

      And honestly, I could care less about the marijuana. At least he wasnt popping pills or shooting heroin. Smoking pot is not inherently “bad”. For kids, sure it is, but its not a big deal and doesnt mean he was a “bad” kid.

      Martin is on Twitter as No_Limit_Nigga .

      You are missing the point entirely. Where is Mr. Duff’s outrage for the story of 2 blacks setting a boy on fire for being white?
      http://articles.nydailynews.com/2012-03-04/news/31122324_1_white-boy-fire-tv-station

      Where is his outrage at the disproportional violent crimes of blacks on whites?

      I am not defending Zimmerman in the slightest. I am only pointing out inconsistencies in the reporting of stories. There are always 3 sides to a story, yours, mine, and the truth.

    • Chris  March 28, 2012 at 5:36 pm

      Were they arrested Curmudgeon? Zimmerman wasnt. Also, I hear this line CONSTANTLY from whites who feel like victims-“more blacks kill whites than whites kill blacks….”. And? You do know that more blacks are in poverty than whites right? You think that would contribute to crime including murder? We dont need to debate why more blacks are in poverty-Im sure you think they are just “lazy” while I think it has to do with not so distant history in this country that set black families back with insititutionalized racism. Even today our “justice” system is racially biased against blacks. More whites use drugs than blacks. More blacks are in jail for drugs. More blacks get the death penalty than whites by FAR despite murder rates being comparable. The reporting is because there was no arrest and people are rightly pissed about it.

    • Curmudgeon  March 29, 2012 at 3:00 pm

      You are confusing issues. Whether Zimmerman was arrested or not is not the point. The point is the article makes a number of assumptions and automatically portrays Martin as an innocent victim, when that is not at all clear. We know squat about the protagonists, other than their names, race, and that one of them is dead. The rest is speculation.

      As for my views on blacks living in poverty, there are a lot of poor white people too. Being poor does not is not necessarily an indicator of a penchant for violence, neither is being black. There are “lazy” people in all races. In fact, I would suggest that if anything, young black males are more driven to succeed in athletics than whites. Asians are more driven to succeed academically than blacks or whites. Jews are driven to succeed in the financial sector.

      More whites may use drugs than blacks, but there are more than twice as many whites as blacks. I don’t know if the percentage of whites using drugs is higher than blacks. More blacks in jail? Maybe more of them are caught. My guess is that per capita, Amerinds consume more alcohol than blacks or whites. So what? That doesn’t address the issue of whether Martin was an innocent victim.

      Institutional racism is a pejorative term used to belittle the democratic right of the majority. If the majority chooses to exercise their rights, they are entitled to do so. They have in Zimbabwe, and in South Africa blacks are encouraged to “kill the Boer”. Japanese Americans were disadvantaged with institutional during and after WWII. It seems they have moved on.

      The constant reference to blacks being slaves is tiresome. Whites were slaves too. Whites who were not slaves were often given more dangerous jobs to do than slaves. Why? Slaves were property. There was a cost to them being maimed or killed. Itinerant white or Asian laborers who were killed or maimed were on their own. Businesses, especially in the past 40 years, don’t care about race, they are only interested in shareholder value.

      After all is said and done,, none of the above alters the fact that I wasn’t a witness to the event, and neither were you or Gordon Duff. None of us know the true character of Zimmerman or Martin. While I am critical of “Jewish” behaviour, in general, vehemently oppose the occupation of Palestine (and Afghanistan, Iraq, etc.), and have faced down accusations of anti-Semitism by answering that I have nothing against Arabs, this article is biased, as it presumes a great deal. I repeat my question, where was Mr. Duff’s outrage over an innocent white boy being burned?

    • Chris  March 28, 2012 at 5:39 pm

      Also, his twitter name? How is that relevant? Is him using the word “nigga” enough for you to just assume hes a “lowlife thug” or something? No offense but the fact that you even felt the need to bring that up says a lot about you.

    • Curmudgeon  March 29, 2012 at 3:16 pm

      You know SFA about me. In my job, I have helped people of all races. Stick to the issue. We know nothing about Martin other than he was black and now dead. The “nigga” bit is ho-hum. Why “no_limit_”? This article is presumptuous.

    • Chris  March 27, 2012 at 5:54 pm

      Robert Zimmerman, a former Orange County magistrate judge, recently wrote a letter to The Orlando Sentinel defending his son, who’s been dragged through the mud for shooting the unarmed 17-year-old last month. In the letter, the senior Zimmerman asks people not to jump to conclusions and insists that his son didn’t follow the young boy home as he walked through their gated community.

      “He would be the last to discriminate for any reason whatsoever. The media portrayal of George as a racist could not be further from the truth. At no time did George follow or confront Mr. Martin. When the true details of the event became public, and I hope that will be soon, everyone should be outraged by the treatment of George Zimmerman in the media,” wrote Robert Zimmerman.

      Now more info is being dug up on his “victimized” son through public records and revealing his checkered past.

      According to a records search on George, he was previously arrested for domestic violence, resisting an officer without violence and most shockingly, resisting an officer with violence — a felony charge that surely could have landed him in prison.

      All three of those arrests, however, were mysteriously closed with no semblance of charges for the Florida resident. So how was someone with a violent past including that of battery against an officer able to carry a 9 mm handgun? Maybe that’s a question Robert Zimmerman should answer …

    • Curmudgeon  March 29, 2012 at 3:10 pm

      He may have been arrested 3 times, was he convicted of any of the allegations?

      My brother was charged, and stood trial for allegedly stabbing someone. The prosecution’s case consisted of the victim’s assertion that it must have been him, because they were strangers, and my brother had spoken to the victim months earlier at a bus stop.

  3. undercoverbrother  March 27, 2012 at 4:13 pm

    I was at the trayvon martin rally in lowntown L.A. yesterday..it was really nice to see people of all races banding together and marching for justice..but I also saw a group calling themselves the “black riders”, passing out flyers and calling themselves the new version of the black panthers. they were dressed in black, paramilitary-style with black berets. There was no violence or anything yesterday..but, with the new black panther party putting a bounty of zimmerman’s head(and make no mistake: that’s dead or alive),and the group I just mentioned..it seems that someone is using trayvon’s death to try to start a race war. I’m not connected enough to see all the angles here; I’m just a black man who doesn’t buy the bullshit so many are shoveling, but something is about to pop off..something big. The next 3 months will be very interesting, I think..

  4. joesigur  March 27, 2012 at 1:10 pm

    Wow, zionist bob, “I never knew ye!”Best apology i can make for him is it that it could be a metaphor for the life of a man of god- I always thought that to write about such things,it had to contain a dual story line-one believed by the masses and a deeper one to give aide and comfort to the “all alone”!

  5. Chris  March 27, 2012 at 11:19 am

    No doubt hes jewish, and very zionist. Read the lyrics to his song “Neighborhood Bully”. Whatever you think of Dylan, the song is awful, typical zionist trope that paints Israel as a victim surrounded by enemies.

    • Gordon Duff  March 27, 2012 at 10:37 pm

      We only know because Zionist groups are defending him. Note I say Zionist and not Jewish.

      Funny thing, the SPLC seems to have jumped over to into the “lynching” mode when they heard their masters voice.

  6. walterschmidt  March 27, 2012 at 8:25 am

    Zimmerman was/is a wannabe cop.After spending a good part of my life working in and around law enforcement and security fields I have seen this type many times.Reports state that he had worked security in the past. On at least one occasion he worked security at a private party. A check conducted of Fl. security guards shows no license for Zimmerman. If he got paid to provide security he violated state law. If he carried a concealed weapon while performing this job he violated the law. His background shows interest in law enforcement but little real training. Was his father’s connection to the courts that encourage the way he behaved and how the case was handled? What would any normal person due when you are being followed by a man that out weighs you by approximately a hundred pounds and is not in a uniform? Zimmerman reacted like a pathetic scared little man with a Napoleon complex.He is a private citizen who has no arrest powers, except a citizen’s arrest which generally states you must be witness to a felony. There was no felony to the point of confrontation. Was there an altercation? Probably. And maybe even some punches. Why is the defense of stand your ground ok for Zimmerman but not for the boy? Zimmerman had no official authority as a watch captain yet he pursued and followed someone ending in the child’s death. If some creep was following me I would confront him too. And if during my questioning he attempted in anyway to lay a hand on me or even gestured I would respond. My response would be the minimal force needed to stop or end a physical threat. Now Zimmerman was carrying a gun. Well if you expose your weapon to me with intimidation then you have shown your willingness to use deadly force. If Zimmerman did this to me there could be several endings. One I would end up like the boy dead due to an over zealous nut case. Two and more likely due to training Zimmerman would have been disarmed and possibly shot dead with his own gun. Three I too have a gun and would have shot Zimmerman dead if he was holding a gun or even moved his hand towards his gun. The last scenario is two part. One Zimmerman probably would not have confronted me because I am a middle aged white man and not a black juvenile. And the second part I would have tried to deescalate the situation before it got out of hand as police officers are suppose to do. There is a threat continuum which is suppose to be used as the threat is advanced. In short the police department and Zimmerman were wrong on several counts. All that said he does deserve a fair trial and as such should be apprehended and held until that time.

    • Gordon Duff  March 27, 2012 at 10:35 pm

      Zimmerman had not been employed in years.

      Ask yourself what he had been doing? No employment or social security records.

      He made me feel safer.

  7. Gerry  March 27, 2012 at 2:30 am

    I’m not defending Zimmerman, At this point I only know for sure is the guy was an IED wandering around looking for an excuse to explode. And as inevitability would have it the opportunity presented itself.

    Just wondering where were Messieurs Jackson, Sharpton, Potok, Dees and Foxman and all the other shameless self promoters when Sgt. Manuel Loggins met his maker?

    Was that because it was done by real cops and not some wannabe? Or was it because his last name was not Zimmerman?

  8. judgment  March 26, 2012 at 9:39 pm

    Gordon, I knew you would pick it up, it was too obvious. At first our news said he was killed by “a Mexican” Then came the name Zimmerman and that got my attention. I posted it was a strange version and requires an explanation because that Latino face with name like Zimmerman, German or Jewish, did not fit. It was a bad way to start a racial issue. It got worse when the Media that jumps on digging stories did not check who Mr. Zimmerman was. Well you finally did, I just stopped thinking of the USS Liberty and Johnson Pathetic explanation for the cover up.

  9. Gerry  March 26, 2012 at 8:01 pm

    A young life wasted is always a tragedy. Guilty or innocent he’s dead. Whatever happens to Zimmerman will not undo this. What is important is that it doesn’t have the intended effect of sowing dissent. I’ve watched for quite some time now as cointelpro, quite obvious in and hanging around most if not all alternative venues, has gotten everyone who isn’t dosed up on Prozac pointing the finger at each other. Now everyone in the AM is accusing everyone else of being co-opted. I hate to say it but these guys really fired for effect this time.

    As Gordon has posited, “everyone gets the invitations to dinner”. I haven’t! guess I don’t like matzo enough to even hold my nose and swallow. I imagine we’ll all just have to determine veracity by seeing who turns up “fixed” like Bill Cooper did when he predicted 9-11, and called Alex Jones an agents provocateur. The forces behind this whole INSIGNIFICANT EVENT are laughing their asses off reading the increasingly hostile responses all over the blogosphere. People kill each other for all the damndest reasons. Phony Weapons of Mass Destruction seems to ring a bell. This is a most effective weapon of mass distraction.

    Get over it! We all here know that our great leaders through our system of injustice will milk this for all it’s worth, excuse me I really meant get to the truth of the matter.

    In the words of another dead guy; “If we don’t hang together, we’ll all hang separately”

  10. Gordon Duff  March 26, 2012 at 6:21 pm

    Excuse me for adding to this. Having worked criminal cases, it began touching on memories, like back when I was an actual person.

    Whatever the talk, the reality is nothing but pain.

  11. Chris  March 26, 2012 at 6:05 pm

    I watch MSNBC/CNN etc. from time to time to see how the spin is being employed. Over the course of the past 2 days the smearing of the victim Martin has gone into overdrive. A picture of a young kid alleged to be Trayvon Martin, wearing his pants low,shirtless and looking like a stereotypical “thug” was flashed all over the tv today. Only problem is the picture wasnt of Trayvon. Also, apparently the kid was kicked out of school for having a bag with “marijuana residue” in it. Oh the horror. They’re really reaching here.

  12. cascadedavid  March 26, 2012 at 4:47 pm

    Reading the comments… Wondering why Adam Holland hates on Gilad? I haven’t read his book yet, but the reviews are stellar… Isn’t his message that we are all the same and that we need to all realize that before we can progress as a people? Am I missing something? Maybe it’s because I’m on the west coast of the U.S. and Jewish people here seem just like everyone else. Can someone please explain this? Thank you in advance.

    • joesigur  March 27, 2012 at 7:33 am

      He’s, either, a zionist jew doing what they all do, or some poor soul that believes American media is free and truthful.Notice how the holocaust is handled like 911.Holocaust denier and 911 truther=deranged,lowest form of human scum. Gilad because he dares question Israelis is a disloyal jew who deserves every lying, power serving intellectual set upon him!

  13. Allen L Roland  March 26, 2012 at 4:09 pm

    Excellent and timely article, Gordon ~ but the main issue to me is racial profiling and this Zimmerman matter is an excellent example .
    The following statement can be attributed to Dennis Parker, Director of the ACLU’s Racial Justice Project:
    “These findings demonstrate clear and significant racial disparities in the way in which motorists are treated once they have been stopped by law enforcement. The report found that blacks and Hispanics were roughly three times as likely to be searched during a traffic stop, blacks were twice as likely to be arrested and blacks were nearly four times as likely to experience the threat or use of force during interactions with the police.”
    Racism is still alive and ticking in America. And then we have the not so subtle example, a few days ago, of Obama giving his photo Op KXL pipeline approval announcement in Cushing, Oklahoma while scores of dissenting native americans were herded into cages a few miles away.

    • Gerry  March 26, 2012 at 4:43 pm

      Allen, Racial profiling is certainly a symptom here but this whole fiasco is a red herring. The seeds of racial division were sown millennia ago. It’s part of the current human condition. What is really occurring here is classic subterfuge. The chimps are being played against the gorillas while the orangutans empty the till.

    • Gerry  March 26, 2012 at 6:37 pm

      I’m not immune. I’ve had the SWAT team in my house and have done a little swatting myself.
      What we’re all doing doing is trying this case with no solid facts, only hearsay! But I would like to reiterate my statement above about the great apes. You see most of us civiliized apes have a little empathy, black, white, yellow, brown, kind of makes me think if the Orangs are really Crocs.

  14. DaveE  March 26, 2012 at 2:47 pm

    Absolutely right, Gordon. What is the point of a “justice” system if certain people with more stolen money than they know what to do with always get off the hook? Then we have Israel, even worse……

  15. aaronkelly  March 26, 2012 at 2:25 pm

    Gordon why the tag at the end identifying you as a qualified investigator?I thought you were just a Military Contractor, Oil industry executive, Investment Banker, Derivative expert, Government Adviser,Republican Party operative, Journalist, Publisher Entrepreneur and 100 % disabled military vet. Ever considered candlestick making.

    • Gerry  March 26, 2012 at 2:31 pm

      Very observent! He is trying to shine a little light here. Ever occur to you that someone capable of earning a PHD might be able to multitask.

      You sure hit some nerves on this one Duffster!

  16. cheryl  March 26, 2012 at 1:39 pm

    Wrong, Gordon, tragically wrong. The enhanced audio, courtesy of CNN, clearly gives a word starting with “c” – followed by the long ‘o’ pronunciation. I hear the word “cones”. I assume while Zimmerman was running, he was tripping over these protuberances in the asphalt which are often used in gated communities on the roads in order to keep car speed down. There is absolutely no “oo” sound in the audio, as the phonetic long ‘u’ sound. I listened several times. To call this a SPLC and AIPAC plot is just about as over-the-edge as you have ever been, and we all know how you have been so soft lately with Obama. Time to take a vacation and take stock of what you’ve been doing. The 95% truth versus the 5% rat poison, well, it still makes you one of the rodents, sorry to say. What is it? Are you on Obama’s hit list and you’re trying to protect yourself? Wake up, it won’t help.

    • Gerry  March 26, 2012 at 2:06 pm

      “Enhanced audio” Kind of reminds me of the Enhanced Zapruder film where the driver supposedly turns and pops JFK in the head with a pellet gun.

      Seems like ever since someone or ones made a killing off of OJ’s trial it’s become a cottage industry in Florida with the murder trial du jour. What about the multitudes of really innocent kids who got killed that day.

    • Gordon Duff  March 26, 2012 at 4:55 pm

      The audio was done while Zimmerman WAS DRIVING A FRIGGING SUV, NOT RUNNING. THE MENTION I AM REFERRING TO WAS “THEM” WHICH WAS INTENDED TO MEAN “BLACK FOLKS”.

      IF YOU THINK HE WAS RUNNING WHILE DRIVING AN SUV, PLEASE LET ME KNOW. I TRIED IN IN MY MERCEDES SUV AND KEPT HITTING THE STEERING WHEEL.

  17. Gerry  March 26, 2012 at 12:29 pm

    Here we go again, another Florida murder 3 ring circus. Frankly with both the MSM and the AM are all raising a cacophony mixture of BS and truth, and we may never know which is what. All the usual suspects are jumping on the bandwagon so there is little hope for clarification at this point. “Millions being spent?”, obviously! The real question is what or who for, Qui Bono? Regardless of this the matter being tried in the court of misguided public opinion is a distraction from really important issues, and the SPLC and ADL getting involved only implicates this. This is for a Grand Jury and if appropriate a judge and jury of his peers. If he’s guilty I hope they are all black, If not all it will take is one Jew to be seated and he’ll walk. Shouldn’t be a problem in Florida finding some sympathy as Zimmerman appears to be a Jew of Geraldo Rivera’s pedigree. That would make him a double minority and if so he should garner him twice the consideration for his underprivileged status.
