The Department of Justice announced today that it will not pursue a federal civil rights charge against George Zimmerman, arising out of his fatal altercation with Trayvon Martin. That was pretty much a foregone conclusion, but the Associated Press took the opportunity to revisit the case:

George Zimmerman, the former neighborhood watch volunteer who fatally shot Trayvon Martin in a 2012 confrontation with the teenager, will not face federal charges, the Justice Department said Tuesday. …

Zimmerman has said he acted in self-defense when he shot the 17-year-old Martin during a confrontation inside a gated community in Sanford, Florida, just outside Orlando. Martin, who was black, was unarmed when he was killed.

Not only did Zimmerman say that he acted in self-defense, the jury in the case so found. The physical evidence, including wounds to the back of Zimmerman’s head, along with the testimony of the only eyewitness, who saw Martin sitting on top of Zimmerman and pounding his head into the pavement, virtually compelled that finding. And here is a news flash for the liberal media: you have a right to defend yourself against an unarmed person who is beating the daylights out of you, or who you reasonably believe will do so.

Does our constitution not give us the individual freedom to speak out against the things we do not agree with? Does it not give us the right to speak out against our government and demand better from our elected officials or to stand in defiance of terrorism and illegal immigration among many other things that a true American Patriot would?

Below is a list of 72 types of Americans that are considered to be “extremists” and/or “potential terrorists” in official U.S. government documents. And remember, technically if you are considered a ‘terrorist’, you have NO RIGHTS! You can click on the clink for each point to see the source.

Enforcers from the Left are scrambling to delegitimize Rudy Giuliani’s statement that he doesn’t believe Barack Obama loves America. They know Giuliani only said what many millions of Americans think, and want to stop the discussion from catching fire.

To paraphrase a past president, the answer depends on what the meaning of America is. That’s a discussion Obama’s protective media has suppressed since he appeared on the national stage, along with cordoning off discussion of his background, world view, and what it might mean for the nation.

Let’s bypass the mayor’s verbiage and ask instead: What does Barack Obama believe about the United States and the rest of the world? How would he change America? Our only clues are his biography and associations, his pronouncements, his actions, and their results.

DEMOCRAT LAWMAKERS ON VERGE OF SCRAPPING VERMONT BACKGROUND CHECKS

Leading Democrats in Vermont are close to scrapping a proposed background check requirement for all private gun sales in Vermont.

The requirement is supported by Michael Bloomberg and has come under added scrutiny after his gun control group–Everytown for Gun Safety–was forced to apologize to Crossfire Arms in Mount Holly for listing the gun store as an “unlicensed” Vermont gun seller.

This all took place just days after Breitbart News reported that Everytown allegedly monitored gun purchases in Vermont over a three-month period and found seven people who were barred from gun ownership but tried to buy one online anyway. Everytown’s report raised more questions about the group’s research methods than it did about the need for more background checks.

Minnesota state Rep. Tony Cornish says the al-Shabaab threat against the Mall of America should be enough to motivate mall owners to drop their “no guns” policy so citizens can protect themselves.

Mr. Cornish, a Republican who also chairs the House Public Safety Committee, said the Mall of America has interpreted state concealed carry laws incorrectly, and he’s intent on challenging them for it, a local CBS affiliate reported.

“This is completely ridiculous. The complete opposite of what they should be doing,” he said. “If we’re threatened with an attack, the last thing you want to do is disarm citizens.”

Rudy is doubling down.

Former mayor Rudy Giuliani acknowledged his speech criticizing President Obama’s patriotism last week “hit a nerve” but went even further Sunday denouncing the president’s foreign policy agenda.

“I said it maybe 30 times before but somehow this time it hit a nerve, maybe because the president is on such defense for his unwillingness to face Islamic terrorism,” Giuliani told John Catsimatidis on 970 AM The Answer.

“We need a American president more like Ronald Reagan who gave us a sense of optimism,” said Giuliani. “There’s something about his unwillingness to talk about Islamic extremist Muslims that is not only wrong, it is becoming very dangerous.”

WaPo: Europe Proves Expanded Background Checks Useless

While Democrats, Gabby Giffords, and groups like Moms Demand Action claim that expanding background checks would end mass shootings, The Washington Post looks across the pond and demonstrates that Europe’s expanded background checks prove useless in the face of a booming black market for guns and radicalized Muslims looking to commit terrorist acts.

After all, Europe has expanded background checks and enacted near-total gun bans in certain countries, but the Paris and Copenhagen attacks still took place.

According to WaPo, in Denmark “handguns and semiautomatic rifles are all but banned.” And hunting rifles can only be owned by people “with squeaky-clean backgrounds who have passed a rigorous exam covering everything from gun safety to the mating habits of Denmark’s wildlife.”

Arizona U.S. Sen. John McCain said something on CBS’s “Face the Nation” Sunday about the U.S.’s handling of the ongoing standoff between Russia and Ukraine that surprised host Bob Schieffer. “I’m ashamed of my country, I’m ashamed of my president and I’m ashamed of myself that I haven’t done more to help these people,” McCain said. “It is really, really heartbreaking.” McCain was expressing his frustration with how the U.S. and major European powers like France and Germany have failed to stop Russian president Vladimir Putin’s advance on Ukraine.

NYPD’s idea of reform included breath mints and baby oil (NOT Satire)

Mayor Bill de Blasio ordered sweeping reforms for the NYPD after the Eric Garner death — but his demands were handled by a goofball police bigwig whose ideas included arming cops with breath mints and spraying protesters with baby oil, sources revealed Thursday.

Michael Julian, who was appointed deputy commissioner of training in November, lasted just two months on the job before his ridiculed proposals got him transferred out, the sources said.

“He would come up with these wacky ideas. We would roll our eyes and move on,” a police source said.

The last straw came in late January — less than a week before Julian was reassigned — when a box of 10,000 individually wrapped breath mints arrived at headquarters.

Julian explained to skeptical cops that officers should pop mints in their mouth when they feel the need to curse, police sources said.

SCOPE-backed SAFE ACT “Repeal” Bills in Albany! — Urge your representative to do what they were elected to do

Not a SCOPE member yet? Make sure you join SCOPE.

 

Do you remember how you felt when the 3 men in a room rammed through the NY Secure Ammunition Firearms Enforcement Act and because of an acronym fooled the downstate people that it was somehow keeping them safe?
Do you remember the standing in snow rain and mud to get the leadership in Albany to stop ignoring us and listen to reason? Well they refused to listen and many of them paid the price in November. We were able to return the leadership of the Senate to the Republicans who told us they were on our side.

Now we are hearing that there is nothing they can do legislatively to repeal the law which creates a secret database for all New Yorkers, infringes on the rights of gun ownership and creates criminals out of law abiding citizens.

There is something they can do legislatively, and that is; stand up to the downstate city Democrats and the Governor.

  1. Support the full repeal of the NY Safe Act (S1193-2015) (A3943-2015) and attach these bills to the budget.
  1. Refuse to VOTE for the continuation of rent stabilization which is set to expire on June 15th, 2015. Restore our Rights or let their rents go up!
  2. Refuse to Fund any aspects of the NY S.A.F.E. Act
  3. Stall the Budget.

 

With a few minutes of your time and a couple of clicks you can make sure these legislators get the message. Please take the time and send this message this weekend and pass it along to your friends and family.

The district attorney is seeking criminal charges against the two officers who shot and killed James Boyd last spring.

Police said officers Keith Sandy and Dominique Perez fatally shot Boyd last year.

District Attorney Kari Brandenburg submitted paperwork Monday to move the case forward. The next step would be a preliminary hearing, where prosecutors would make their case to go to a full trial. A judge would have the final say on whether the case moves forward.

“In this case we do believe that we have probable cause,” Brandenburg said.

The DA is seeking murder charges.

Ann Coulter had this to say about the Media/Democrat attacks on Giuliani telling the truth about the feckless child in the White House:

“Everyone keeps saying ‘oh how you can see into his heart? you can’t say this.’ Gosh, they sure call us racist a lot. Can they see into our hearts? And that’s based on, what? Because Republicans want to cut taxes? Whereas the fact that Democrats, generally do not love their country. I would base [that] on things like Obama expressly rejecting American Exceptionism. His Attorney General, Eric Holder saying we’re a nation of cowards and constantly finding racists under every bed, investigating this police department and that police department for racism. I mean, to defend yourself by saying ‘well, you can’t see into someone’s heart.’ No, I think if you go around constantly bashing Joe, ‘Joe is a racist,’ ‘Joe is greedy,’ ‘Joe wants to keep his own money,’ ‘Joe won’t help me.’ I think I can conclude you don’t like Joe”

You have all heard the story of Dale Norman, the man in Fort Pierce who walked out of his house with his freshly minted Florida concealed carry license and was arrested because he did not realize his firearm was partially exposed.

The local judge denied any and all constitutional arguments to have the case thrown out, and the court convicted Norman.

According to the non-profit, non-partisan, and grassroots organization, Florida Carry, which is also helping to fund Mr. Norman’s defense, “The County Court judge also did not fully consider the Second Amendment or the Right to Bear Arms under the Florida Constitution; denying those motions to dismiss the case because the question of the right to bear arms “is for someone above the level of this court.”
