“You Never Let a Serious Crisis Go To Waste”
— Rahm Emanuel
Has it ever occurred to anyone that the feds – translated as: the Department of Justice – are keeping the firestorm blowing in the Zimmerman case for an alternate purpose?
Attorney General, Eric Holder, with the blessings of the president, continues to keep the Zimmerman matter on the front burner, even though it is a state case that has been resolved through the criminal justice system, as is should be.
To suggest pursuing a civil rights violation, charging that Zimmerman killed Trayvon Martin because he is black, is certain to be another losing cause, because all the evidence – I mean ALL the evidence – overwhelmingly shows that this is a self-defense case from day one, which is why the police chief of Sanford and the State Attorney from that district, determined there was no evidence to substantiate criminal charges. That won’t change in federal court.
Federal court will allow the backgrounds of the subject, George Zimmerman and Trayvon Martin into evidence, which will bode well for Zimmerman and very bad for Trayvon, whose sordid past behaviors are not as saintly as the media would have you believe. George Zimmerman’s past has been investigated under a series of microscopes as though he was a national terrorist. Every turn shows him to be the opposite of a racist. (Which undoubtedly displeases a lot of reverse racists) Don’t believe me? Read this:
Eric Holder isn’t stupid, he knows all this. So, why keep this a losing cause, on the front burner?
This is nothing new. Holder got the DOJ involved in this from the upstart, before Zimmerman was even charged, which is another mystery, which suggests alternate motives for keeping this alive. Why did Eric Holder dispatch a squad of DOJ people (Federal Authorities in a state matter) from the Community Relations Service (CRS) to Florida to help coordinate and facilitate protest demonstrations in and around Sanford , Florida? From the Freedom of Information Act, Judicial Watch came up with this, a partial disclosure of their activities in time line:
- March 25 – 28, 2012, CRS spent $1,142.84 “in Sanford, FL to work marches, demonstrations, and rallies related to the shooting and death of an African-American teen by a neighborhood watch captain.
- March 30 – April 1, 2012, CRS spent $892.55 in Sanford, FL “to provide support for protest deployment in Florida.”
- March 30 – April 1, 2012, CRS spent an additional $751.60 in Sanford, FL “to provide technical assistance to the City of Sanford, event organizers, and law enforcement agencies for the march and rally on March 31.”
- April 3 – 12, 2012, CRS spent $1,307.40 in Sanford, FL “to provide technical assistance, conciliation, and onsite mediation during demonstrations planned in Sanford.”
- April 11-12, 2012, CRS spent $552.35 in Sanford, FL “to provide technical assistance for the preparation of possible marches and rallies related to the fatal shooting of a 17 year old African American male.” – expenses for employees to travel, eat, sleep?
Eric Holder works at the bidding of the president. Protecting Barack Obama is his primary duty. It is a foregone conclusion that stirring the pot will achieve nothing for either side of the Zimmerman matter, other than keeping people stirred up. So why?
Did it occur to anyone that we have hardly heard anything about Benghazi? We’ve heard nothing about NSA, the AP and news reporters phone records? The IRS controversy is off most of the front pages.
I wrote blogs as far back as 2009 and 2010, suggesting that we are all like sheep, led by a fawning media, following the leader wherever he wants us to follow. Dishonest people use diversionary tactics to shift focus from themselves. The best way to shift focus on a hot item, is to create another hot item somewhere else. The old shell game.
Bank robbers used to start huge fires at one end of town, as a diversionary tactic to draw attention elsewhere, and far from the bank.
No, Obama, Holder and Al Shartpton and MSNBC had nothing to do with what happened that tragic night when Trayvon Martin lost his life. But they sure seized the opportunity to keep the media and the American people’s attention from the growing scandals facing the White House by race-baiting those who are easily race-baited, amassing the protesters and using the media to spark outrage across the nation.
Can I prove that? No. But I can assure everyone that lots of strategy is discussed behind the scenes, and there is more to the story of an Attorney General of the United States getting his federal agency – already overworked – mired into a state criminal case where he has no business. People can be blinded by passion and, sadly, controlled by those they worship like little robots.
Sometimes you gotta look beyond the smokescreen. When we all finally see the light, and realize we’ve been had, it may be embarrassing to all of us.
