The US Department of Justice in 2012 dropped the prosecution of Walter Bagdasarian who made terroristic threats towards President Obama. The Federal Courts in overturning Walter Bagdasarian's conviction cited 1st Amendment speech protections and a lack of intent or the means to carry out the threats. The US Department of Justice decided to not pursue the case to the Supreme Court and let the ruling stand. Now in 2014, The Department of Justice is charging Jaleel Tarik Abdul-Jabbaar who lives in the state of Washington for allegedly making online threats towards former Ferguson police officer and killer cop Darren Wilson who himself has never been arrested or indicted by The Department of Justice on any charge related to the execution of Michael Brown. In fact neither has the killers of Trayvon Martin, John Crawford III, Tamir Rice, Eric Garner, Aiyana Jones, Milton Hall and hundreds of more victims every year. The US Justice Department does not have the moral grounds to prosecute Jaleel Tarik Abdul-Jabbaa ...
In case readers missed it with all the coverage of the Trayvon Martin murder trial and the Supreme Court’s rulings on *** marriage and the Voting Rights Act, the US Supreme Court also made a ruling on lawsuits against drug companies for fraud, mislabeling, side effects and accidental death. From now…
Today we look back at 2013. It was a historic year. Edward Snowden exposed how the National Security Agency had built a worldwide surveillance apparatus, while Chelsea Manning was sentenced to 35 years in jail for leaking U.S. secret documents to WikiLeaks. Pope Francis urged the world to address economic inequality, warning about the tyranny of unfettered capitalism. Tens of thousands were killed in Syria, with many more displaced. The Philippines was devastated by Typhoon Haiyan. The U.S. Supreme Court struck down part of the Voting Rights Act, while overturning the Defense of Marriage Act that barred federal recognition of same-sex marriages. George Zimmerman was acquitted in the killing of Trayvon Martin. The U.S. government was shut down for 16 days, while Congress failed to pass comprehensive immigration reform or any true gun-control measures. The U.S. war in Afghanistan entered its 13th year, while more than 8,000 civilians were killed in Iraq — in the deadliest year there since 2008. Meanwhile, ...
(Originally posted by my friend Martin Kellem) From an article by Cracked.com today...yes, the comedy site. "In a world where George Zimmerman is out there pulling his gat on whoever looks at him funny and Trayvon Martin isn't a living person anymore, it's only natural to get caught up in the worst the world has to offer. Then when something good happens, we're knocked off our feet. This year, a single man refocused the entire mission of one of history's most influential institutions. A Pakistani teenage girl was recognized for her constant fight to educate Muslim girls, even after getting shot in the head for her advocacy. And the Supreme Court struck down the section of the Defense of Marriage Act that prevents *** married couples from getting federal benefits. So, to recap: The future of two of the world's most conservative religions are in progressive hands, and the United States government is tired of fighting *** for their constitutional rights. Are you excited? Good. Should you be surprised? No. W ...

I find it weird how Mohammad Ali won 8-0 in the Supreme Court but Trayvon Martin lost

In light of the recent situations with the Trayvon Martin case, the Supreme Court's ruling on DOMA, and the media's/populace's ruling on Paula Dean, I thought I'd throw my hat into the ring and chime in on racism and bigotry--which in my opinion, come from the same place... and that place is Tribalism. I'd like to premise this by saying that Tribalism is in our DNA, and the DNA of literally every other species on this planet. Those who are like us are "friends"; those unlike us are "enemies". Tribalism is a fundamental consequence of evolutionarily-driven survival; it protects "our" gene pool while putting the gene pool of others at a disadvantage. Those who have the abilities and resources and physical/intellectual/cultural characteristics most suited to their environments, prosper. Those without them, die out or are driven out. This is the nature of the world; the nature of all living things. If you believe in a creator, this is the way said creator created it to be. Now if you can ...
"So much is going on this week that even the national media can't fall into their usual stenographic lockstep; they were running all over the place playing Musical Leads. CNN's Neocon maven Erin Burnett was still stuck on desperado fugitive (as opposed to heroic whistleblower) Edward Snowden -- adding nothing about why his own government is hunting him down like an animal. MSNBC pivoted to the Supreme Court's trashing of the Voting Rights Act, with only snippets of Trayvon Martin trial coverage. My local CBS affiliate highlighted the impending funeral of James Gandolfini, combined with a rogue tsunami that hit the Jersey shore." ~ Sardonicky.
Good Morning! If you've long suspected police officers pulled you over for "speeding" to satisfy a quota -- you're right! CNN got a-hold of an email written by the Atlanta police union President: "THE MAYOR HAS DESIGNATED TRAFFIC COURT AND TICKET REVENUE FOR FUTURE PAY INCREASES." Booyah! Proof that if a cop wants a raise he or she must pony up some tickets! Also in the news today: The US Supreme Court will rule on whether same-sex marriage is constitutional. Many analysts suspect the court will leave it up to individual states, but who knows? Maybe Justices won't punt on this one. We'll also take you to Sanford, Florida. Trayvon Martin's girlfriend may testify this morning. She was talking to Martin on a cellphone just before he was killed. We also expect to hear from Paula Deen. She will speak out for the first time since she admitted to using the N-word. In the meantime Deen's cookbook is selling like hot shrimp and grits. So there! See you at 9 and 10 AM ES.
Benjamin Crump wants his Trayvon Martin case to go to the Supreme Court. On what grounds now Crump?
Some stories covered in season 2: The elections, drones, Trayvon Martin, the Supreme Court on the Affordable Healthcare Act.
Headline after headline, news clip after news clip, this week has shaped up to become the worst week in President Obama’s presidency, and one of the worst weeks for a President in history. An article by Charles Hurt in the Washington Times lists the events of this week. The week’s events were as followed. 1. President Obama inserted himself into the Trayvon Martin tragedy by elevating the racial tensions. “Americans need to do some soul-searching.” The president then said that if he had a son, he would look like Trayvon Martin. The result was accusers, and those too impatient for facts to arise, rushing to judgment, and taking vengeance into their own hands through bounties and inflamed violent rhetoric. 2. While the Supreme Court debates were taking place, President Obama was in South Korea. During his meeting with the Russian President, President Obama was caught on mic negotiating on how he would compromise the safety of America, and its allies through dismantling our missile defenses. 3. Thi ...
This is a day to celebrate our uniquely American freedom -- a freedom that many of us take for granted. Let freedom ring from Zuccotti Park, formerly the home of Occupy Wall Street, from Trayvon Martin's neighborhood in Sandford, FL., and from the steps of the Supreme Court in Washington, DC. Let freedom ring.
LAPD Tops NYPD By Alton H. Maddox, Jr. This past Thursday, while I was driving in the Washington, DC area, I accused my ears of lying to me. I had just heard a radio broadcast. The police had shot, on Wednesday evening, an unarmed teenager 90 times in Los Angeles, CA. His name was Abdul Arian and he was nineteen years of age. The young man was not engaged in any criminal activity. There were eight cops at the crime scene. Even if the young man had been engaged in criminal activity, the U.S. Supreme Court in Garner v. Tennessee prohibited the police from shooting a fleeing felon. Under a "stand your ground law", the police would still be enjoined from shooting a fleeing felon. There is also reason to believe that George Zimmerman shot Trayvon Martin in the back. Shortly after the prosecution of two members of the NYPD for sodomizing Abner Louima, I wrote articles stating that there was a new "shoot to kill" policy by law enforcement agents in this country. It is cheaper to kill a person than to mai ...
Keep Trayvon Martin in your prayers tomorrow the Supreme Court will decide if charges will be files against MURDERER George Zimmerman. Also keep in mind all the other victims of injustice Troy Davis as well and everyday citizens who aren't publicly recognized.
