Lethal force is permissible in Florida when someone is manifestly violently attacked, and the jurors fulfilled their function: in the Zimmerman case, their verdict was "acquittal". They heard the evidence, they rendered a verdict. This happens all over America thousands of times every day. That includes murder trials. That includes the people involved being of different races. Prisons are filled with often black male inmates, many of whom are there for the rape and or murder of a white person. That's not racist, that's unpleasant statistical fact. It just is. If people want to change that statistical fact, they need to work on how people behave toward each other before it reaches the courtroom, not how they behave in response to the verdict after it leaves the courtroom.
So what does this have to do with Barack Obama and Eric Holder? If you say "Nothing", I agree with you. But they don't:
Thankfully, it looks like Holder's potential investigation doesn't stand a prayer:
So why then? Why do Obama and Holder get involved in a situation in which their involvement reeks of reverse-racism, race-baiting and riot inciting? Why do it?! As usual, this blog has a considered theory. In this case: OBAMA PROTECTION.
To watch the news every day it seems like Obama is just sailing along with nary a care. He isn't. Obama is, IMO, in very, very deep trouble and that isn't only my opinion, many people hold firmly to it. Obama is in serious trouble because of two issues, Benghazi and his birth certificate forgery. Think both issues are dead? Think again.
On Benghazi, regular readers here know that HRes36, House Congressman Frank Wolf's resolution for a Benghazi Select Committee, has 160 co-sponsors - far beyond those needed to meet the Hastert Rule demanding a floor vote, but Obama's golfing pal, supposed Republican Speaker John Boehner will not allow a vote on the measure otherwise certain to pass resoundingly hence this art from this blog:
But the danger to Obama of a Benghazi Select Committee has just become multiplied many times over, because it is now likely to become a reality. Congressional House Representative Steve Stockman from Texas is now issuing what we have cited here months ago: a discharge petition. Basically this action forces the resolution out of committee and to the floor for a vote, where it is essentially certain to pass, creating a Select Committee to investigate Benghazi and there isn't a damn thing Boehner or Obama can do about it; the law is the law. A Select Committee is important because it gets results. The most famous one was the one for Watergate, that resulted in president Richard Nixon's resignation in 1973.
A quote from THIS Press release from Stockman's office: Following the cancellation of a House hearing this week on the Benghazi attacks, Rep. Stockman announced his intention to file a discharge petition to force a vote on Rep. Frank Wolf’s H. Res. 36, which would establish a Select Committee to investigate the Benghazi attacks.
The degree to which this has not been reported is stunning. Thankfully, this is now beyond the influence of the media.
Additionally, the same Stockman has apparently agreed to hear evidence that Obama's birth certificate is a criminal forgery:
So what does this have to do with Obama and Holder on the Zimmerman case? Easy. Obama is running out of options. And in my opinion, what Obama and Holder are doing, transparently, is fanning the flames of racial anger and basically trying to terrorize whites into not impeaching a black president for fear of this on a larger scale:
Why do I suspect that? Because there is no reason for Obama and Holder to otherwise get involved. Media is my business, and quite frankly, were I not a conservative Christian with a conscience, and ethics and a moral compass, and I was working for Obama, what Obama and Holder are doing is just exactly what I would recommend they do: terrorize whites with fear that 0.1 percent of the 12% of the American population that is black would riot and frighten them.
Fortunately, there appears to be a reality settling in by the lack of riots over Martin of the kind we saw in 1992 over Rodney King, and perhaps why Holder's initial rhetoric already appears to be vaporizing: people get it, now. It isn't about race, it's about the person. And that is perhaps the biggest political danger Obama has ever faced.
