´I never quit!´ One year on from her public
humiliation during George Zimmerman´s trial,
how Trayvon witness Rachel Jeantel has turned
her life around by graduating from high school

Daily Mail [UK], by David McCormack

Original Article

Posted By:KarenJ1, 7/14/2014 4:49:38 PM

Rachel Jeantel was thrust in the national spotlight last June when she took the stand in the George Zimmerman trial as the prosecution’s supposed ‘star witness’. Instead, Jentel quickly became a target for public ridicule due to her demeanor in court and the fact she was outed as illiterate on national TV. In the months since then Jeantel has worked hard to turn her life around and in doing so keep a promise she had made to Martin to graduate high school. At the time of last June’s trial, Jeantel had a fourth-grade reading level. The child of immigrant parents,

Comments:
Will she follow in the footsteps of Mooch Obama and Sheila Jackson Lee and get a free ride to Yale? s/o Absolutely nothing anymore would surprise me. Affirmative action was sure good to the aforementioned duo.

Good for her! We all know that white women are the biggest benefactors of affirmative action, though.

We´ll good for her! At least she (supposedly) is doing something right. But the headline is misleading. Just because she graduated from high school hardly constitutes " turning her life around". It´s a step forward, that´s all.

Rachel´s attorney may think that something good came from the trial because she graduated high school, but look what it has done to George Zimmerman. The man´s life is a disaster because he was white and saved his own life by killing the black guy who was trying to kill him. This is a tragedy all around. If Rachel succeeds at anything, I think all of us will be surprised.

I certainly did not support Trayvon´s side in the case, but kudos to anyone trying to better themselves, and to those who help them. We can deal with the politics another time.

(Yes, that would also apply to the illegals - they just need to better themselves by following the law, so that they don´t hurt those who are legally here.)

Poster #6: And guess what picture of Trayvon pops up...

I hope you understand that Trayvon´s worth less "mother" spent the month between the shooting and her public displays of anger busily copyrighting and trademarking every picture ever take of her "wonderful, innocent" son, along with the slogan, "Justice for Trayvon". The only two released to the public/media are the one (here) in the red shirt and another in white that looks like a kindergarten "graduation" shot.

She refused to release any recent photograph that might show his true age or size...he actually looked like a full-grown man and was 5" or 6" taller than George Zimmerman.

Now that she can read at the adult level, she should get herself a good diet book like the popular, "how to lose fat without trying hard." I´m not attempting to be unkind here because obesity kills more Americans than tobacco ever did or will.

Travon´s actions that night especially the part where he was sure to position himself on top of Zimmerman was a conditioned response learned from weeks of "interaction" with his girlfriend, Rachel ... a lesson learned well or he might have met his demise earlier by getting the "stuffing squeezed outta him" in the "missionary-minor" position. /s

Obama is quietly forming a coalition to support airstrikes on ISIS in Syria after the execution of US journalist James Foley, according to a report on Wednesday. Obama said Tuesday in Charlotte, North Carolina that his Defense and State Departments are ´urging countries in the region and building an international coalition, including our closest allies, to support Iraqis as they take the fight to these barbaric terrorists.´ He did not specifically mention recruiting partners for bombing raids over Syrian air space.

Mitt Romney has repeatedly stated that he will not run in the 2016 presidential election, but his most recent comments suggest he may be leaving the door slightly open for another run at the White House. During a radio interview yesterday on “The Hugh Hewitt Show,” Romney responded to more questions about his possible candidacy by saying, “I know you’re going to press, but you know, this is something we gave a lot of thought to when early on I decided we’re not going to be running this time.“ “And again, we said look, I had the chance of running.

The mother of two, who lives in Tucson, received a deportation order requiring her to leave the country by August 8th. But instead of returning to Mexico, the day before her deportation order she packed her bags and moved into Tucson’s Southside Presbyterian Church, which has become her and her family’s sanctuary of sorts the past three weeks to avoid deportation.

Whatever they may disagree about, Western leaders are in complete agreement about one thing: the new self-styled caliphate, the Islamic State, has nothing whatsoever to do with Islam. It’s a comforting, reassuring vision for Western non-Muslims facing a massive influx of Muslim immigrants and jittery about the prospect of Islamic terrorism, except for just one problem: it’s entirely false. Barack Obama has made it clear: “ISIL speaks for no religion. Their victims are overwhelmingly Muslim, and no faith teaches people to massacre innocents.” David Cameron intoned: “What we are witnessing is actually a battle between Islam on the one hand and

He lived in California before he traveled to Syria earlier this year to join other Islamic State terrorists. But his heartbroken cousin only remembers a humble, kind man — not a militant.

The National Highway Traffic Safety Administration, part of the Department of Transportation, published last week an "advanced notice of proposed rulemaking" on "vehicle-to-vehicle communications." What NHTSA is proposing could begin a transformation in the American transportation system that makes our lives better and freer — or gives government more power over where we go and when. In announcing its proposed rulemaking, NHTSA is stressing its intention to protect the "privacy" of American drivers.

The Immigration & Customs Enforcement agency renewed its search this week for "Transportation Services for Unaccompanied Children" crossing the border into the United States. An earlier notice posted in January of this year seeking "escort services" for an estimated 65,000 unaccompanied children raised questions about the Obama administration´s prior recognition of the effect that news of its Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals (DACA) plan would have on primarily Central American parents who mistakenly believed their children would benefit from the program.

Marco Rubio´s office got in touch this week to say the Florida senator and possible 2016 GOP presidential hopeful wanted to discuss immigration. The specific subject was President Obama´s expected move to unilaterally legalize as many as half of the 11 million immigrants currently in the United States illegally. But Rubio, speaking by phone during a visit to Atlanta, had much more to say about the broader issue of immigration reform. What he outlined amounted to an entirely new approach to the issue that has contributed to his rise, then fall, and perhaps rise again, in the Republican Party. Rubio

Democrat Michelle Nunn is running ahead of David Perdue in the race for the U.S. Senate in Georgia. The WSB-TV poll found that Mrs. Nunn has 47 percent to 40 percent edge over Mr. Perdue. The libertarian candidate, Amanda Swafford, received 3 percent, and 10 percent of the respondents were undecided. The winner of the race will replace retiring Sen. Saxby Chambliss. Mrs. Nunn, the daughter of former Georgia Sen. Sam Nunn, is seen as one of Democrats best bets to flip control of a GOP-held seat. Republicans need to flip six seats to win back the Senate.

White House allies maintain that the storyline of a checked-out president is a myth drummed up by the media during the summer doldrums. “It’s bullshit,” said one former senior administration official. “This is a guy who reads 10 letters a day simply to keep in touch with the American people.

When a federal appeals court ruled last month that a seemingly arcane wording flaw in the Affordable Care Act should invalidate a central part of the law, many of those who drafted the statute five years ago reacted with shock and anger. In 2009, they had spent months piecing together a compromise that sought to create a national system of subsidized insurance — but one run by the states. Now, they fear their work could be undone by what some call a "drafting error" and others portray as a political miscalculation. The judges from the U.S. Court of Appeals for

Amid the hysteria over the shooting of 18-year-old Michael Brown in Ferguson, Mo., it might be lost that most black and white Americans believe they’re not out to get each other. A new Pew Research survey shows that 75 percent of whites and 64 percent of blacks say their groups get along together “pretty well” if not “very well.” It’s a bleaker view for Hispanics, 53 percent of whom say the same. Ferguson fell into the national media spotlight on Aug. 9 when Brown, who was unarmed and black,” was shot dead by Darren Wilson, a white police officer. A St. Louis grand jury is currently deliberating whether to charge Wilson of a crime.

For many students, the unwelcome return to school is often sweetened with a shopping trip for school supplies and new clothes. Not anymore. As college, high school and grade school students begin returning to classes, the Environmental Protection Agency is urging students to use recycled material, even garbage, for their supplies and to shop at thrift stores for “retro fashions.” And don’t even think about taking more than one napkin or salt packet in the lunch line. “Buy smart!
