Voice experts claim it�s not George Zimmerman voice on 911 tapes crying for help when Trayvon Martin got shot

Not a good day for the George Zimmerman camp.  

Orlando Sentinel reports as the Trayvon Martin controversy splinters into a debate about self-defense, a central question remains: Who was heard crying for help on a 911 call in the moments before the teen was shot?
A leading expert in the field of forensic voice identification sought to answer that question by analyzing the recordings for the Orlando Sentinel.
His result: It was not George Zimmerman who called for help.
Tom Owen, forensic consultant for Owen Forensic Services LLC and chair emeritus for the American Board of Recorded Evidence, used voice identification software to rule out Zimmerman. Another expert contacted by the Sentinel, utilizing different techniques, came to the same conclusion.
Zimmerman claims self-defense in the shooting and told police he was the one screaming for help. But these experts say the evidence tells a different story.
'Scientific certainty'
On a rainy night in late February, a woman called 911 to report someone crying out for help in her gated Sanford community, Retreat at Twin Lakes.
Though several of her neighbors eventually called authorities, she phoned early enough for dispatchers to hear the panicked cries and the gunshot that took Trayvon Martin's life.
George Zimmerman, a Neighborhood Watch volunteer, shot Trayvon, an unarmed 17-year-old, during a one-on-one confrontation Feb. 26.

I�ll be happy when this case gets to court so we finally put all the evidence in front of a jury instead trying the case in the court of public opinion.  I don�t know what happened and until a jury decides, I�m neutral.

Perpetual Tax cheat Al Sharpton is lucky he�s not i in jail for tax evasion: Civil disobedience will escalate if Zimmerman remains free

I�m sick and tired of this Democrat Party blessed charlatan being a so-called leader for the Black community.  This fraudulent, dead beat preacher and his phony nonprofit owe millions in back taxes.  He�s the last person who should complain about a lack of an arrest considering the Dems allow him to break tax laws with impunity.    
Orlando Sentinel If George Zimmerman is not arrested in the shooting death of Trayvon Martin soon, the Rev. Al Sharpton will call for an escalation in peaceful civil disobedience and economic sanctions.

BUMPED:Romney camp should demand Obama release all college transcripts from Occidental, Columbia and Harvard


It�s been reported that the Obama White House is making demands that Gov. Mitt Romney should release his tax returns.

Well, if Obama is gonna make demands for anyone to release documents, I say it�s high time he release all his college transcripts, including all documents pertaining to the types of financial aid he received for the entire period he attended college.

All taxpayers are entitled to see what kind of grades the president earned during college. There is absolutely no reason for him, a public servant, to be allowed to shield this information from the American people. Every other public servant be it local, state, or Federal throughout the country as a matter of course is required to show all college transcripts� to fulfill a prerequisite for high level positions. President Obama, with the help of a sycophant media, is the only presidential candidate in my memory that was allowed to continue withhold this basic information from the American people.

Why is that?

What is the president hiding from the American people that cannot see the light of day?

Show the records, Mr. Prescient!

Angel of Death : Nurse Kimberly Saenz facing the death penalty after being found guilty of killing five patients by injecting IV lines with bleach

Was she legal?


Daily Mail reports a nurse is today facing the death penalty after she was found guilty of injecting dialysis tubes with bleach, killing five patients and injuring five more.


Kimberly Saenz, 38, is was last night found guilty of murder in the deaths and aggravated assault in the injuries at the DaVita Dialysis clinic in Lufkin, Texas.


Saenz, who was arrested after a boom in emergency calls prompted an investigation into the clinic, has pleaded not guilty and was released on bail.


On trial: Saenz is accused of murdering five patients and injuring five others by injecting bleach into their tubing at a dialysis clinic in Texas


In 2008, a top fire official wrote an anonymous letter pleading for state health department inspectors to visit a clinic because of numerous calls for paramedics.


'In the last two weeks, we have transported 16 patients,' the April 2008 letter said. 'This seems a little abnormal and disturbing to my med crews. Could these calls be investigated by you?'


Within days, surveyors arrived. By that time, emergency crews had been called 30 times that month, including seven for cardiac problems. Four people had died.


This was compared to just two calls during the previous 15 months, according to the Texas Department of Health Services.

Victory for Wisc Gov. Scott Walker: Federal judge upholds constitutionality of his restricting collective bargaining

Go Scotty Go!!!
These days of public sector unions holding the state of Wisconsin hostage are coming to an end thanks to the courage of Gov Scott Walker.  Taxpayers�, who are the ones who pay the salaries for PSUs, have every right to control costs.  The unholy alliance between PSUs and the Democrat Party are bleeding states like my New York, California, Michigan and Illinois dry and on the brink of bankruptcy.  
What do all these states have in common?
They�re all one party controlled states and that party starts with a �D�!  
Host Madison reports a federal judge on Friday upheld most of Gov. Scott Walker's controversial collective bargaining law, but struck down key parts of it by ruling that the state cannot prevent public employee unions from collecting voluntary dues through payroll deductions and cannot require they recertify annually.
The collective bargaining law, also known as Act 10, established a system in which most of the public unions were required to have an "absolute" majority of their members vote every year to recertify � a standard higher than traditionally used. The law also took away some unions' rights to collect mandatory dues and prevented unions from deducting voluntary dues directly out of employee paychecks.
The measure did, however, exempt almost all public safety unions, such as police and firefighters. This difference led the court on Friday to rule that the state did not have the right to pick and choose among public unions.
"So long as the state of Wisconsin continues to afford ordinary certification and dues deductions to mandatory public safety unions with sweeping bargaining rights, there is no rational basis to deny those rights to voluntary general unions with severely restricted bargaining rights," the order read. (Read the full ruling here)
Walker considered Friday's ruling something of a victory. Cullen Werwie, Walker's spokesman, said the administration was still trying to figure out what the ruling meant in terms of increased costs to the state and enforcement, but felt the judge affirmed the constitutionality of nearly everything in Act 10.
"We are confident that the 7th Circuit Court of Appeals will continue to uphold the constitutionality of the law," he said.

George Bush hater Keith Olbermann axed from Current TV and replaced by Client #9 Elliott Spitzer


When you get fired and your replacement is a certified whore monger, then your career is really in the toilet! 
Politico reports Current TV has terminated its relationship with Keith Olbermann and will replace his show with a program hosted by Eliot Spitzer.
UPDATE: Olbermann will file suit agaisnt Current TV. His full statement is available here.
The complete memo from Current TV:
To the Viewers of Current:
We created Current to give voice to those Americans who refuse to rely on corporate-controlled media and are seeking an authentic progressive outlet.  We are more committed to those goals today than ever before.
Current was also founded on the values of respect, openness, collegiality, and loyalty to our viewers. Unfortunately these values are no longer reflected in our relationship with Keith Olbermann and we have ended it. 
We are moving ahead by honoring Current's values.  Current has a fundamental obligation to deliver news programming with a progressive perspective that our viewers can count on being available daily -- especially now, during the presidential election campaign.  Current exists because our audience desires the kind of perspective, insight and commentary that is not easily found elsewhere in this time of big media consolidation.

Santorum Jokes With Boy Not To Use Pink Bowling Ball, Left Goes Nuts�He�s absolutely RIGHT!!!

Little boys aren�t supposed to use Pink bowling balls! Can we get this straight? Besides, it was a joke.


Weasel Zippers reports at a campaign event at a bowling alley in Wisconsin today, GOP presidential hopeful Rick Santorum told a boy who reached for a pink bowling ball: �You�re not gonna use the pink ball. We�re not gonna let you do that. Not on camera.� Santorum went on to say �Friends don�t let friends use pink balls.� The comments were tweeted by Reuters reporter Sam Youngman.


�This is another example of Rick Santorum intentionally making ignorant statements that have a real impact on LGBT people,� said HRC Vice President of Communications Fred Sainz.

I�m not referring to Gay men, they have an excuse for the way they act. I�m talking straight effeminate men that don�t have a clue because the traditional male, female gender roles have become so blurred, thanks to the Feminists movement that began in the 70s. Try to find a strong male figure on TV? They can�t be found.

Still photo of the back of George Zimmerman�s head show what appears to be a vertical laceration

The seesaw revelations of the Trayvon Martin caae continues
Daily Caller reports ABC News published the video Wednesday evening. Zimmerman is the man who shot and killed 17-year-old black teen Trayvon Martin a month ago.
�A police surveillance video taken the night that Trayvon Martin was shot dead shows no blood or bruises on George Zimmerman,� ABC News reporter Matt Gutman wrote, noting that Zimmerman told police �he shot Martin after he was punched in the nose, knocked down and had his head slammed into the ground.�
ABC News reported that Zimmerman appears uninjured in the video. But a still image from the video indicates what appears to be a vertical laceration or scar several inches long.
ABC did note that at the 49-second mark in the video, one of the police officers accompanying Zimmerman stops to look at the back of Zimmerman�s head for several seconds. Zimmerman, as ABC News noted, did not visit the emergency room after police interviewed him.
The Orlando Sentinel�s Rene Stutzman reported on March 26 about portions of what Zimmerman told police during that interview.
�With a single punch, Trayvon Martin decked the Neighborhood Watch volunteer who eventually shot and killed the unarmed 17-year-old, then Trayvon climbed on top of George Zimmerman and slammed his head into the sidewalk, leaving him bloody and battered,� Stutzman reported, relating the account Zimmerman reportedly gave police that night.

Newly released video shows George Zimmerman DID NOT have blood bruises the night he shot Trayvon Martin!

This is an explosive piece of evidence that severely contradicts George Zimmerman�s account that he got a broken nose and bruises from scuffling with 17 year old Trayvon Martin.  I think this boosts the prior story that Sanford police originally wanted to charged Zimmerman with manslaughter.   

The Huffington Post report5s newly released video of George Zimmerman at the Sanford Police Department the night he shot Trayvon Martin to death show the neighborhood watch volunteer without blood on his clothing or bruises on his face or head. His clean-shaven picture seems to contrast with the violent beating he told police he endured at the hands of Martin, 17, who Zimmerman said attacked him from behind.
The video, obtained by ABC News, appears inconsistent with Zimmerman�s recently leaked statement to police that he was in a death struggle with Martin before Zimmerman shot him in the chest in self-defense. Zimmerman told investigators that Martin jumped him from behind, punched him in the nose and pounded his head into a sidewalk, according to a police report first described by the Orlando Sentinal.

This new information changes everything and makes a good argument that Zimmerman should have been arrested so that all evidence be hashed out in court.

C.L. Walker and Roland Martin debate: who really is killing blacks? Devastating statistic of all blacks killed, 92% are by other blacks

I�ve been making this point since the weekend. Blacks are killing other Blacks at an astronomical rate. Yet the rhetoric from African American leaders like Al Saharpton and Jesse Jackson as well as Black politicians totally ignores the facts by putting out a false template that Whites are hunting down and killing African Americans.

I give C.L. Bryant credit for the courage of taking on Democrat blessed civil rights leadership in Jackson and Sharpton who are really not interested at all in improving conditions in the �hood. Their hustle is to rabble rouse and cause strife and division to keep African Americans firmly on the Democrat plantation by putting all the blame on Whitey.

Former Black Panther/Rep (south side of Chicago) Bobby Rush defies House rules by wearing a Hoodie on the House Floor

And the Oscar goes to�.
In one of the greatest demonstrations of political grandstanding in recent memory, congressman Bobby Rush who represents one of the most violent congressional districts in the United States where Black on Black shootings is as common and predictable as the sun coming up in the morning, brazenly flouted House rules by defiantly removing his jacket, and donning a Hoodie and dark sunglasses while reading a prepared speech in support of Trayvon Martin.

The Hill reports Rep. Bobby Rush (D-Ill.) on Wednesday morning was asked to leave the House floor after removing his suit jacket to reveal a �hoodie,� then putting the hood over his head to protest the Trayvon Martin killing in Florida.


�Racial profiling has to stop,� Rush said. �Just because someone wears a hoodie does not make them a hoodlum.� Rush also donned sunglasses.

Audio: Scalia lectures Verrilli on enumerated powers

Hot Air reports the guy who uploaded this to YouTube calls it a �benchslap.� It�s loads of fun, and the point about limited powers will sound familiar. The key part comes early when Scalia jumps in to challenge Verrilli�s citation of Court precedent. Those cases dealt with commerce, he says; in this case, the legislation is aimed at people who aren�t participating in commerce, i.e. people without insurance.
That�s a gut-punch to the left since, once you make that move conceptually, the Commerce Clause defense of the statute is hanging by a thread. You can follow his thinking over the rest of the clip from there. If it�s not commerce, then Congress has no power to regulate it, and if Congress has no power to regulate it, then the Tenth Amendment says this is a matter for the states. And to think, a few days ago, Democrats thought they might be able to use Scalia�s Raich opinion to swing him over to their side.

87 Percent of Americans Agree With Conservative Supreme Court Justices on Broccoli Mandate

In oral arguments over the new health care law passed by Congress in 2010, justices wondered if the law could set precedent allowing Congress to require Americans to buy other products, such as cell phones, burial insurance, gym memberships and broccoli.

Chaka Khan and other R&B stars record tribute song for Trayvon Martin

It doesn�t matter what the facts of the case are. Even if there�s a trial and George Zimmerman is found not guilty, Trayvon Martin has become mythologized to suit a never ending political agenda of portraying African Americans as the hunted and Whites as the hunters looking to kill�em. It doesn�t matter a rip that statistics show that African Americans are overwhelmingly killed by other African Americans. That doesn�t fit the template nor sells T-Shirts.

Trayvon martin: Suspended THREE times for drugs, truancy and graffiti and 'caught carrying a burglary tool': New picture emerges of Trayvon Martin (and did he attack a bus driver too?)

Welcome to the real Trayvon Martin!


Daily Mail:

� The teen was suspended from school three times
� He was on suspension when he was shot in February, after officials caught him with a 'marijuana pipe' and a baggie with drug residue
� Trayvon was kicked out of school in October for graffiti after he was allegedly caught with a 'burglary tool' and a bag full of women's jewelry
� Officials also suspended him once for skipping school and tardiness
� Tearful parents say their son is now the victim of a smear campaign
� New poll shows 73 percent of Americans think Zimmerman should be arrested

Trayvon Martin was suspended from school three times in the months before he was shot dead by a neighborhood watchman, it emerged today.

The new claims, revealed in a leaked report, paint a different picture of a teenager who frequently found himself in trouble with authorities.

It was also revealed that he might have attacked a bus driver, according to a Twitter account that it is claimed belonged to the teen.

The Miami Herald claims that in October, he was caught with a 'burglary tool' - a flathead screwdriver - and 12 pieces of women's jewellery. Martin insisted that they did not belong to him.

Earlier, he had been suspended for skipping school and showing up late to class. And most recently, in February, he was suspended again when officials found a 'marijuana pipe' and an empty baggie with traces of the drug.

The fresh claims are likely to be seized upon by supporters of George Zimmerman who say the teenager launched an unprovoked attack on the neighbourhood watch volunteer moments before Trayvon was shot dead.

Sanford Police recommended manslaughter charges on George Zimmerman but State Prosecutors saw weak case and order police to let Zimmerman go

This changes the impression that the Sanford Police did nothing to arrest George Zimmerman.  They were overruled by State prosecutors.  
ABC News reports the lead homicide investigator in the shooting of unarmed teenager Trayvon Martin recommended that neighborhood watch captain George Zimmerman be charged with manslaughter the night of the shooting, multiple sources told ABC News.
But Sanford, Fla., Investigator Chris Serino was instructed to not press charges against Zimmerman because the state attorney's office headed by Norman Wolfinger determined there wasn't enough evidence to lead to a conviction, the sources told ABC News.
Police brought Zimmerman into the station for questioning for a few hours on the night of the shooting, said Zimmerman's attorney, despite his request for medical attention first. Ultimately they had to accept Zimmerman's claim of self defense. He was never charged with a crime.
Serino filed an affidavit on Feb. 26, the night that Martin was shot and killed by Zimmerman, that stated he was unconvinced Zimmerman's version of events.

The Left in Fetal Position: Mandate could be in big trouble after Supreme Court arguements

I�m not confident that ObamaCare is gonna be struck down. It�s way too early to predict either way. But, one thing I do know, if this law is upheld, this country fundamentally changes into a soft totalitarian form of government. Individual liberty would be gone for good because the Federal government would have the power to impose any mandate it wants.

This is extremely horrifying!

Politico reports before Tuesday, most legal analysts seemed to agree that the Supreme Court would probably uphold health care reform�s individual mandate � even if the conservative justices had to hold their noses to do it.

Just minutes into the oral argument Tuesday, that conventional wisdom fell apart.

All of the conservative justices asked such tough questions about the individual mandate during Tuesday�s arguments that it�s no longer clear that the Obama administration can get a fifth vote to uphold it.

Even Justice Anthony Kennedy � the swing vote everyone was watching � signaled that he has serious doubts about the mandate. That became clear early in the session, when he asked Solicitor General Donald Verrilli Jr. if the government could require purchase of certain food.

�Here the government is saying the federal government has a duty to tell citizens it must act,� Kennedy said. That changes the relationship between the government and the person �in a fundamental way.�

And even though Chief Justice John Roberts seemed to agree with the government that all people will consume health care at some point in their lives, he worried that the health care law would open the door to many other mandates.

69% in new NYT/CBS poll say U.S. should not be fighting in Afghanistan

But I thought this was Obama�s war?

Hot Air reports A new high since they started asking this question in 2009. That�s noteworthy but not surprising given the gruesome Rasmussen poll Ed blogged a week ago. How much of it is driven by a reaction to the massacre on March 11 allegedly carried out by Robert Bales and how much is a reaction to the Koran-burning riots and fragging of U.S. troops by Afghan �partners� before that? No way to tell, but for a clue, revisit this ABC poll conducted from March 7 to 10 and published on the very day that Bales is said to have gone on a rampage. Even before his actions, 60 percent of adults said the war hasn�t been worth fighting and 54 percent said the U.S. should pull out whether or not it�s done training the Afghan army. This is a long time coming, but the riots and aftermath were obviously a heavy nudge.
