March 26, 2012 Former NAACP leader accuses Sharpton and Jackson of ‘exploiting’ Trayvon Martin

Via Don

Former NAACP leader C.L. Bryant is accusing Jesse Jackson and Al Sharpton of “exploiting” the Trayvon Martin tragedy to “racially divide this country.”

“His family should be outraged at the fact that they’re using this child as the bait to inflame racial passions,” Rev. C.L. Bryant said in a Monday interview with The Daily Caller.

The conservative black pastor who was once the chapter president of the Garland, Texas NAACP called Jackson and Sharpton “race hustlers” and said they are “acting as though they are buzzards circling the carcass of this young boy.”

Fight, drug reports put Trayvon Martin family on defense

Roundabout via Billy

The family and supporters of slain Florida teenager Trayvon Martin found themselves on the defensive Monday following revelations he had been suspended for marijuana before he was shot to death by a neighborhood watch volunteer.

Police also confirmed a report that the community watch member claimed Martin was the aggressor, punching him in the nose and smacking his head on a sidewalk.

Martin, 17, was suspended by Miami-Dade County schools because traces of marijuana were found in a plastic baggie in his book bag, family spokesman Ryan Julison said. Martin was serving the suspension when he was shot Feb. 26 by George Zimmerman, who was patrolling the neighborhood that Martin was visiting with his father.

Martin's mother, Sybrina Fulton, and family attorneys blamed police for leaking the information about the marijuana and Zimmerman's claim about the attack to the news media in an effort to demonize the teenager.

Was Trayvon Martin a Drug Dealer?

Via Billy

Above is the iconic picture we’ve been become accustomed to seeing everywhere in the media, used to represent the recent Trayvon Martin shooting in Sanford, Florida. From everything the public has been told, Trayvon Martin was a fresh-faced, innocent looking teenager and the visage of the man who shot him, George Zimmerman, is right out of a booking photo.

The media narrative being sold is quite clear, Trayvon Martin is the innocent victim here and George Zimmerman is a horrible bigot who attacked the young man for doing nothing more than buying skittles while being black. Even Barack Obama seems to accept the fresh-faced innocence of Trayvon, stating, “If I had a son, he would look like Trayvon.” More on that later.

It’s becoming more and more clear however that the innocent appearance the mainstream media is so desperate to apply to Trayvon isn’t at all accurate. The picture we’re used to seeing to represent Trayvon Martin appears to be a far cry from how he actually looked once he was a few years older.

Martin decked Zimmerman with one punch and then repeatedly slammed his head into the sidewalk

The Orlando Sentinel is reporting that Trayvon Martin decked George Zimmerman with one punch and then repeatedly slammed his head into the sidewalk, according to a newly released version of the events that led up to the 17-year-old’s death.

The neighborhood watch captain was left “bloody and battered,” according to the version Zimmerman told investigators. Witnesses have corroborated his version, authorities told The Orlando Sentinel. And ABC News reports that Zimmerman told police that Martin knocked him down and attempted to take his gun.

A battle to save the American Republic

The Battle for American Survival
The Moral Imperative to Defeat Barack Obama

Mike Scruggs

We are only seven months from what will probably be the most important election in American history. Never before have America’s founding principles and values been more aggressively threatened by an incumbent president and his party. Virtually everything Americans have believed in, worked for, prayed for, and fought for in the last 250 years is at stake. The voting on November 6, 2012, may be our last chance to turn back the radical economic and social agenda that is threatening our freedoms, our values, our prosperity, our families, and our national security. Republicans and like-minded independents must come together and win this election to save our country and put it back on the path of liberty and prosperity.

In order for Republicans to win in November, we must defeat a powerful enemy. President Obama will use the power of government, the left-leaning bias of most of the mainstream media, and a billion dollar campaign fund, probably including massive foreign infusions of cash, to obscure his disastrous record and discredit and demonize Republican candidates. This election will be won by the party that can get its supporters to the polls. The Democrats have the formidable help of organized labor and the radical subsidiaries and front organizations of Acorn.

The Democrat Party can turn out huge numbers of voters by making just two phone calls—one to the Labor Union bosses and one to Acorn. Republicans are going to have to work much harder than they have ever worked before to counter this national Democrat Party juggernaut that has been falling into place for many months.

We are not engaged in a spectator sport with victory or defeat having few consequences. The winners of Super Bowls, NCAA Basketball Tournaments, and the Masters’ Golf Tournament receive tremendous national focus and acclaim for a short time, but the glory of victory or pain of defeat in these sports events have negligible consequences on the economic, social, and political conditions that will shape our lives and the lives of our children in the future. Neither victory nor defeat in such sports events will result in the loss your personal and religious freedoms, your property rights, and your right to shape your own life and determine your own economic future. None will transfer your savings to others, take away your right to choose your own healthcare, or undermine the strength of our Armed Forces.

But a political victory for President Obama and his party in November will allow them to continue their radical agenda for social and economic change with escalating militancy and increasingly aggressive measures. Obama’s plans for change threaten everything America has been in the past. No personal, property, political, or economic rights will be secure. His attacks on free speech, religious liberty, and traditional concepts of fairness and justice will continue with mounting ferocity. Everything that has made us a great and free people is at stake.

We cannot depend upon television ads to defeat Obama. We are going to have to make phone calls, put out yards signs, and engage our friends on the issues and consequences of this election. That kind of activity, by the way, is about three times more effective than media advertising. A yard sign is as effective as $500 of media time.

We must defeat President Obama, his party, and his radical agenda or the American dream of freedom, prosperity, and justice is in imminent danger of becoming a totalitarian Obama nightmare.

Men and women of patriotic heart and a love for truth and just government need to roll up their sleeves to do what is right and necessary to save our country from that nightmare. It is no longer a time for soft-pedaling Obama’s extreme radicalism. His misguided Marxist worldview is ruining the nation’s economy and severely undermining our freedom of speech and religion. His contempt for traditional Judeo-Christian moral teachings is devastating the morale and military preparedness of our Armed Forces. His czarist appointments and refusal to enforce immigration laws are defiantly violating the Constitution. While he claims to be a Christian, his policies have become more and more openly and militantly anti-Christian. Truth will be known by its fruits.

The November election will be as important as any event in history. I do not believe it is an exaggeration to say that it may prove just as important as the Battle of Britain in 1940, when the defending fighter squadrons of the Royal Air Force devastated the offensive strength of the German Air Force and saved Britain from almost certain defeat. This election could easily be as important as the Allied defeat of the totalitarian regimes of National Socialist Germany and Imperial Japan in 1945.

Let me be frank. This election will be a battle to save the American Republic from destruction by a radical president with a radical and increasingly totalitarian agenda. Patriotic Americans need to wake up and engage in the political process or see their freedoms, prosperity, and hopes for just government buried.

In a national radio broadcast following the massive attack by the Imperial Japanese Navy on Pearl Harbor in December 1941, President Franklin Roosevelt rallied the American people to rise up against their attackers. Exhorting the American people to “inevitable victory” in the defeat of their enemies, he closed his speech with, “So help us, God!”

It is time to throw off the dangerous secularist political correctness that is sapping the spiritual and moral strength of our country. We must remember with humility that our liberties and blessings are dependent upon the gracious providences of a sovereign God. In our resolve to stand against tyranny, let us also say, “So help us, God!”

Obama Caught on Hot Mic: Tells Russian Prez He‘ll Have More ’Flexibility‘ ’After My Election’

"Flexibility" on this issue is the least of my concerns. I can just imagine what else he will go after if we are stupid enough to elect him again.

Via Puma By Design

ABC’s Jake Tapper has a stunning report out of Seoul, South Korea this morning. According to him, President Obama was caught on a hot mic telling outgoing Russian President Dmitri Medvedev that if given “space,” he’ll have more flexibility “after my election.”

Here’s how Tapper puts it:

At the tail end of his 90 minute meeting with Russian President Dmitri Medvedev Monday, President Obama said that he would have “more flexibility” to deal with controversial issues such as missile defense, but incoming Russian President Vladimir Putin needs to give him “space.”

The exchange was picked up by microphones as reporters were let into the room for remarks by the two leaders.

And here’s the exchange:

President Obama: On all these issues, but particularly missile defense, this, this can be solved but it’s important for him to give me space.

President Medvedev: Yeah, I understand. I understand your message about space. Space for you…

President Obama: This is my last election. After my election I have more flexibility.

President Medvedev: I understand. I will transmit this information to Vladimir.

Trayvonnosaurus Rex

According to the police report of his murder on the night of February 26, Trayvon Martin stood exactly six feet tall. In death, he has become a hundred times larger.

I believe that’s because crass opportunists are using his corpse as a political Macy’s Parade balloon.

I could be wrong, you know. Unlike a lot of mouths spouting off about the events leading to Trayvon’s murder at the hands of George Zimmerman on that rainy Sunday night in the seedy little gator-hunting town of Sanford, FL, I don’t claim to know what happened. That’s because I wasn’t there. More importantly, I don’t claim to know WHY it happened. That’s because I wasn’t inside the killer’s mind.

Sorry if that may strike you as an impudently objective approach. I realize that many people find even the feeblest attempt at non-partisan fairness to be off-putting at the very least. These days, any public display of open-mindedness makes a lot of people dizzy and has been known to induce agita in readers with sensitive metabolisms.

Although modern journalism suffers no shortage of liars, most of the false impressions it creates are more due to a careful omission of facts. And in the Trayvon Martin case, I’ve seen a whole lotta cherry-pickin’ goin’ on. Due to the way the saga is being framed, as well as the fact that it’s swollen into the top news story in America, a rancid little tug in the pit of my stomach tells me this could all get a lot more dangerous, and quickly.

The flames are being fanned by paid scribes and well-compensated activists who’ve been salivating for a good old-fashioned white-on-black hate crime, even though this isn’t technically one of those.

“Trayvon Martin stood exactly six feet tall. In death, he has become a hundred times larger.”
But the torches are being carried by those who are acting like they know exactly what happened—even though, like me, they weren’t there, either.

Special Classifier

This has been a very shooting-centric weekend! I had shooting practice Friday night, then packed up and got up at 0-dark-30 to carpool with some of my buddies to a match a few hours north of here. That was a six-stage classifier so it took awhile. I *just* got those scores and video so I probably won’t get that stuff posted until tomorrow.

When I got home from that match, I re-packed my bags for today’s local match, a five-stage spring classifier. I get the feeling our club president really likes strong and weak hand stuff, because there was a LOT of this today! Good thing I’ve been concentrating on that in practice lately! Here’s my videos and critique.
