Rachel Jeantel – Trayvon was afraid of being raped!

On the Piers Morgan show the other night, Rachel Jeantel pointed out that Trayvon Martin feared that “creepy ass Cracker” George Zimmerman was a homosexual rapist. Further, she pointed out, Trayvon had to confront Zimmerman, he couldn’t run home. He didn’t want Zimmerman to find out where he and his little brother were staying. (After all, Zimmerman might have staked out their house until the little guy went out to play or something, I guess.)

When we saw the highlights of Jeantel’s interview on Monday night, we immediately thought of something else. When initially interviewed by the police, Zimmerman recounted Trayvon asking him something like “What’s your problem, Homie?” Zimmerman said he couldn’t be sure of the exact words. Well, would we really expect Trayvon Martin to call George Zimmerman “homie”? That’s a term of endearment, as in “He’s my homie” or “We’re homies.”

But consider this: within the context of Rachel Jeantel’s revelations, it makes perfect sense to surmise that what Trayvon Martin really said was “What’s your problem, homo?” So, perhaps Trayvon Martin wanted to teach the “homo” a lesson, and that’s why he set out to beat the crap out of him, why he assaulted him with such apparent passion.

It makes perfect sense, and even though Rush Limbaugh will claim to have formulated this theory (he’s been blabbing about it since yesterday), he has made no mention of the “homie” remark, which is a key part of the big picture.

So, the real question is, was Trayvon Martin committing a hate crime at the time of his death? Was he a homophobe? (As of today, we do not know what his position was on same sex marriage.) On the other hand, since Zimmerman is not gay, can it be considered an actual hate crime, or just an attempted hate crime?

The bottom line: the more we learn, the more we begin to feel that George Zimmerman was more victim than villain, and Trayvon Martin was more Tupac Shakur than Will Smith.

Court to Midget Millionaire/Control Freak Nanny Bloomberg: Fugetaboutit

By now you know that Mayor Michael Bloomberg has a problem with authority; that is, he has a problem any time he doesn’t have authority over every aspect of everyone else’s lives, and not just those living in New York City. As we noted a couple of weeks ago, he recently spent $2 million to defeat a pro-2nd Amendment candidate in a primary in Illinois’ 2nd Congressional district, a thousand miles from his jurisdiction. Remember when he started his meddlesome “sting” operations and sued gun stores in Georgia, Ohio, Pennsylvania, South Carolina and Virginia, legitimate businesses in other states?  The crushing legal fees that resulted drove two gun shops in Virginia out of business. 

Then there’s his desire to protect citizens of New York City from their own stupidity by making sure that they don’t ingest the wrong foods and drinks. Unfortunately, thanks to a Manhattan judge’s ruling, those poor helpless wretches are left to their own incompetent decision making. From The New York Daily News:

Mayor Bloomberg ‘s controversial ban on large, sugary sodas fell flat Monday when a judge shredded nearly every legal argument advanced by the mayor’s lawyers and tossed the regulation out.

The sweeping ruling, a day before the ban was to take effect, was a stinging setback for Bloomberg, who won national acclaim in pushing the regulation — and condemnation that he was creating a nanny state.

Manhattan Supreme Court Justice Milton Tingling dismissed the rule as “arbitrary and capricious,” with too many loopholes and exemptions, siding with soda companies and business groups that had taken the city to court.

Nanny Bloomberg is unimpressed. He knows that this judge, who wrote a very well-reasoned 37-page opinion, is wrong and that he is right, OF COURSE. I was impressed with Judge Tingling’s emphasis on separation of powers, which the brilliant Antonin Scalia has noted is as important, if not more important, than the Bill of Rights in protecting liberty.

Bloomberg claims that

“With so many people contracting diabetes and heart disease, with so many children who are overweight and obese, with so many poor neighborhoods suffering the worst of this epidemic . . . it would be irresponsible not to,” he said.
“People are dying every day. This is not a joke,” he said. “We’re talking about lives versus profits.”

proving yet again that having lots of money doesn’t mean you have lots of brains. Let me school you, Mr. Mayor. The solution to the problem you describe has nothing to do with ridiculous, and easily circumvented restrictions on personal food and beverage choices. It has to do with physical activity. As I noted in one of my books, Desperation Fitness, only 20  calories a day that a person doesn’t burn results in a 2-pound weight gain over the course of a year.

So, if you claim that you have the right to solve the “obesity epidemic,” what’s next? Mandatory morning workouts imposed by government fiat? Are NYC Exercise Inspectors going to ensure that your citizens expend a certain number of calories in physical activity every day? Why not just dispense with the inconvenience of trying to police that and put people in labor camps where you can make sure they’re on board with “Let’s Move?”

One more question: doesn’t the fact that British twit/ratings poison Piers Morgan agrees with you, Mr. Mayor, give you any pause that just maybe you might be wrong? I didn’t think so.

As Cuts Loom and Public Shrugs, NY Times Suddenly Spins Other Way on Sequestration | NewsBusters

SL (Smart Listener) Mensa sent us these quotes from John Maynard Keynes, which I wanted to share since we were talking about all the Keynesian crap that Gene Sperling and Barack Obama are trying to sell you. Link here. Don’t be played.)

“I believe that in many cases the ideal size for the unit of control and organisation lies somewhere between the individual and the modern State. I suggest, therefore, that progress lies in the growth and the recognition of semi-autonomous bodies within the State-bodies whose criterion of action within their own field is solely the public good as they understand it, and from whose deliberations motives of private advantage are excluded…”

“For my part I think that capitalism, wisely managed, can probably be made more efficient for attaining economic ends than any alternative system yet in sight, but that in itself it is in many ways extremely objectionable. Our problem is to work out a social organisation which shall be as efficient as possible without offending our notions of a satisfactory way of life.”

-John Maynard Keynes

Justice Scalia’s comment during last week’s oral argument over Sec. 5 of the Voting Rights Act has Left even more unhinged than usual because he accurately described “preclearance,” what was supposed to be a temporary remedy as “racial entitlement.”

Soundbite I didn’t have time to play, in which liberals express outrage over Court invalidating legislative enactment. From MS-NBC’S “Up with Chris Hayes,” featuring Judith Browne Dianis, of something called the Advanceproject.org, and Akhil Reed Amar, of Yale Law School. Thought experiment: will they feel the same way about the Court reviewing the Defense of Marriage Act?

Larry Elder on Fathers, Jack Cashill on Hillary’s Lies-Today on The Teri O’Brien Show

The Sage of South Central, Larry Elder, will be our guest to discuss his riveting new book, Dear Father, Dear Son…Two Lives, Eight Hours, which describes his horrific childhood with a brutal father who beat him and his brothers on a regular, albeit not always predictable, basis. How did growing up in this environment shape his future, especially his attitude about fathers and their absence? He has spoken eloquently about the epidemic of broken families in the black community, but what about American society in general? Don’t the recent high-profile mass killings committed by young men with untreated mental illness say that we have a serious social problem involving our boys and young men? We’ll also ask him about his decades long battle against the race baiters who have tried to enlist black Americans in a cult of victimhood, and the case of former Los Angeles cop Christopher Dorner, now accused of two murders, and author of a bizarre manifesto. The Lame Stream Media has scrubbed references to Mr. Dorner’s admiration for well-known media liberals like Chris Matthews and Piers Morgan, as well as his admiration for Barack Obama. Is he surprised?

After her star turn before the Senate, in which she received was praised to the skies for asking the brilliant question “what difference does it make?” why four Americans were slaughtered under her watch in Benghazi, Hillary Clinton enjoys absurdly high approval ratings, proving again the power of the Lame Stream Media to shape public perception. In retrospect, she’s probably happy that she didn’t have to take that 3 a.m. phone call. Sadly, as we learned last week when former Sec. of Defense Leon Panetta and Gen. Martin Dempsey, chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff, no one took that desperate plea for help from Libya. Apparently, the narcissistic, affirmative-action assisted, empty suit playing dress up as Commander-in-Chief was AWOL. At least now we know the reason for the coverup, featuring that ridiculous claim about a silly anti-Muslim video being the cause. The current occupant of the Oval Office was …where when those four brave Americans were being murdered? When precisely did Barack Hussein Obama learn of the death of our Ambassador? What was he doing during the siege? Will David Axelrod ever be called on his deliberate lie, which conveniently took place right before the presidential election, that Obama was “talking to his national security folks well into the night” about the situation in Libya? Many of us are more interested in the answers to these questions than to the other weighty issues that seem to occupy the attention of over-the-air broadcast outlets, such as Chris Brown’s latest brush with the law, or an East Coast snowstorm. We’ll ask our guest, prolific author (Deconstructing Obama) Jack Cashill, about “Hillary’s First Lie,” the subject of a recent piece he wrote for The American Thinker, and also about the questions he thinks prospective CIA director John Brennan must answer about Barack Obama’s passport and the One’s mysterious 1981 trip to Pakistan.

Michelle Obama suddenly discovers that people are being murdered with guns in her home town, Chicago, and travels there to use a dead girl as a prop. Stay classy, Michelle!

Marco Rubio will deliver one response to the State of the Union Address. He is featured on the cover of irrelevant rag Time Magazine as the “Republican Savior,” but is he an Article II Natural Born Citizen?
