‘Justice for Trayvon’: Audio released
of DOJ member urging action
against George Zimmerman

Washington Times, by Jessica Chasmar

Original Article

Posted By:FlyRight, 7/13/2013 6:55:16 AM

The legal watchdog Judicial Watch released an audio recording Thursday of a Department of Justice staffer urging Sanford, Fla., city officials and the minority advocacy group Dream Defenders to seek justice for Trayvon Martin, because “if a community perceives that there’s something wrong in the black community, there’s something wrong.” “CRS is an arm of the department that we call the Peacemakers,” Thomas Battles, regional director of the DOJ´s Community Relations Service, said at a meeting at the Shiloh Church on April 19, 2012. “We work with communities where

This is what you get when you elect a community organizer President. The only thing obama knows how to do is agitate. Race relations have been damaged beyond words and they will never be repaired in my life time. Our own Government the DOJ is now fomenting black violence against whites. Sol Alinsky must be very proud of what obama has accomplished. No wonder the Black Panthers were never prosecuted.

Disgusting! We have a racist Department of Justice. We have a state AG office persecuting a man because he is NOT black. We have a trial whereby not one piece of evidence has been produced to show Zimmerman did not act in self defense. We have a judge that badgers the defendant in open court. A judge that denies the defense time to prepare for the next day.A judge that denies the defense the right to admit TM past history on drugs, fighting and other criminal activities. Don´t forget prosecutors that submit other than truthful statements.

Good grief!

This DOJ has nothing to do with justice. This administration thumbs it´s nose at everything and anything in the United States that is just and is dismantling the "rule of law."

I believe they want anarchy so that martial law can be imposed and Obama can sidestep the Constitution in its entirety. There is evil afoot.

CRS: Communist Rabble-rousing Saboteurs.
Remember the Obamboozler said "If they bring a knife to the fight, we bring a gun". He said he was going to do it and here it is. This is one of their "guns" only this one they ironically call the "Peacemaker". See how much peace they´ve made? In this DOJ justice is the last thing they are interested in. Department Of Juiced is more like it.

Yep, a problem if we´re talking about lock-step thinking based on myths, half truths and lies; misportrayed as cultural wisdom or street smarts; all calculated to prop up a delusional and poisonous "community".

This is community organizing at its ugliest level.

The bias of Nelson, Florida Circuit Court judge and a lifelong Democrat, in favor of the prosecution and its efforts to railroad Zimmerman as a racist murderer has been palpable throughout the case. Her actions, which have actively aided the state, could poison jurors and factor into future litigation.
Her shameful rulings and behavior, therefore, are worth cataloging, and include:
• Suppressing exculpatory evidence recovered from the (double-password-protected) cell phone of Trayvon Martin that reveal deleted texts of the 17-year-old bragging about street-fighting with friends and relatives and photos showing him brandishing guns, gangsta-style. This evidence supports Zimmerman´s claim he feared Martin and shot in self-defense.
• Disallowing Martin´s criminal background, including arrests by Miami-Dade school district police for drugs, theft, graffiti and other delinquent behavior. (Martin, in fact, had been suspended from school the week he jumped Zimmerman inside his gated townhouse complex, after police found stolen jewelry and burglary tools inside his backpack.)

"Social Justice" is what the likes of Jesse Jerkson and Al Sharptongue have always been screaming for. If you don´t know that "social justice" means, just look at this case. It means that a "white-Hispanic" male must be made to pay the price for all the alleged injustices black males have been hit with over two centuries in this country.

One man paying the sin debt of others... hmmm, where have I heard that has already been accomplished??? Hmmm, oh yes, His name is Jesus Christ!

I´m sorry, but the message seems obvious, IMHO. If you are of a certain race(s) you BETTER not fight back or the DOJ and WH (and the IRS, FBI, angry, ugly Democrat female judges, whatever) will come after you. Or use your tax own dollars to hire some brownshirt thugs who will.

These are clearly just intimidation tactics.

It also shows that the DOJ doesn´t believe in our justice system, do they? Apparently these racist thugs have their own "justice." The mob kind.

Isn´t incitement to riot a crime? Or is this more of those "rules/laws-that-don´t-apply-to-liberals" thing? (They´re just so extra special, aren´t they?)

This is OBAMA. This is exactly who he is. A racist of the highest order. Of course, Democrats always were. They still are, all of them.

People who are white-hispanic-hardworking-responsible-Repub-Indie-Libertarian or whatever, don´t feel cowed. (Unless they are politicians, of course). They do feel pretty angry, though. I´d leave angry responsible people alone. If they own guns, responsible people learn how to use them. Well. They don´t scare easily. And they are contained and brave enough to wait until they see the whites of your eyes.

Want my advice.? Be vengeful, sure, if you want. But I´d keep that rioting-killing-stealing-flatscreens-burning-down-buildings-thing in your neighborhood.

The first story out didn´t, as I recall, include a reference to a tape recording.

Be good of someone to provide a url to the recording, or maybe to the full text.

I´m very distrustful of words and clauses absent the full environment and context.

Then there´s the remarkably small amount of money, what was it, $5000 and a small team of federal employees are supposed to have launched vast demonstrations of tens of thousands of people?

like to see the mechanism and techniques for that one ~ rest of us ought to know how to do that!

I have no doubt Obamugabe decided he had to rebuild his street cred with the black Americans he´s left unemployed and destitute during his Great Obama Recession ~ so he decided to lynch an hispanic.

BTW, way back when ~ like as late as the 1920s ~ the ´one drop´ rule was law in the Souf´, and Zimmerman qualifies ~ so Obamugabe actually tried to lynch a black man ~ guess that´s his white half speaing eh?

(did I put in a /s or not, or does it need that ~ truth is stranger than fiction in this case ~ Rev. Al does that to anything he belches on)

Obama looks to close wage gap while

President Barack Obama is planning to sign two new executive actions aimed at narrowing the wage gap between men and women Tuesday, even as the Obama White House pays its female staffers less than men.The first executive action will be an order banning federal contractors from retaliation against employees who disclose or ask about their wages, according to reports. His other executive action will require federal contractors to submit data to the government about their employees compensation by sex and race.

Fears that high-speed traders have been rigging the U.S. stock market went mainstream last week thanks to allegations in a book by financial author Michael Lewis, but there may be a more serious threat to investors: the increasing amount of trading that happens outside of exchanges.Some former regulators and academics say so much trading is now happening away from exchanges that publicly quoted prices for stocks on exchanges may no longer properly reflect where the market is. And this problem could cost investors far more money than any shenanigans related to high frequency trading. When the average investor, or even

After his health-care law surpassed the low-ball enrollment target of 7 million, President Obama staged a Rose Garden rally and zinged doubters: “Armageddon has not arrived.” At least he did not declare: “Mission Accomplished.”The country is years from knowing whether Obama’s overhaul of the health-care system fulfills the promise of delivering universal coverage.While large numbers of Americans have found the program very advantageous, including people who were formerly uninsured, many others have been forced to change plans or change doctors — contrary to Obama’s repeated promises.Obama tacitly admits the unintended consequences every time he waives a deadline or mandate in

A triumphant President Barack Obama declared Tuesday his signature medical insurance overhaul a success, saying it has made America´s health care system ´a lot better´ in a Rose Garden press conference. But buried in the 7.1 million enrollments he announced in a heavily staged appearance is a more unsettling reality. Numbers from a RAND Corporation study that has been kept under wraps suggest that barely 858,000 previously uninsured Americans – nowhere near 7.1 million – have paid for new policies and joined the ranks of the insured by Monday night.

Where he differs from Malthus, however, is in arguing that the shortages are the consequence of policy, rather than the inherent limitations of the universe. The world is doing everything it can to run in the opposite direction of abundance because we think we have too much. The West dreads warmer weather, even though warmer weather might

In Texas, political opposition to President Obama’s health law is so strong that some residents believe, erroneously, that the program is banned in their state.But in Connecticut, a smoothly functioning website, run by competent managers, has successfully enrolled so many patients that officials are offering to sell their expertise to states like Maryland, which is struggling to sign people up for coverage.

LONDON - Peaches Geldof, the wild-child second daughter of concert organizer Bob Geldof who worked as a model, a television presenter and a fashion writer and filled the pages of British tabloids with her late-night antics, has died at age 25. There was no immediate word on the cause of her death at her home in Wrotham, Kent, southeast England. Her father said in a statement Monday: "Peaches has died. We are beyond pain." "She was the wildest, funniest, cleverest, wittiest and the most bonkers of all of us," he said. "Writing 'was' destroys me afresh. What a beautiful child. How is this possible that we will not see her again? How is that bearable? We loved her and will cherish her forever."

The Democratic National Committee is furious by a conservative website’s ad campaign that depicts Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi clad in a bikini in a provocative pose with her tongue sticking out. Rep. Debbie Wasserman Schultz, chairwoman of the Democratic National Committee, called on Republicans to press Breitbart News to remove the artwork — one of several suggestive images on the website promoting the new California site. The image of Pelosi, beneath one of California Gov. Jerry Brown’s face photo-shopped onto a flexing body builder, includes the sub-head: “Because you can’t make this s— up.” “To say the least,
