Tom,

Did you notice that Ed Primeau doubled down in the comments section of his blog by stating that Zimmerman did say “coons”?

I left another comment hoping to get him to lay out his reasoning. Here it is:

1. Once again, I have to admire you for the courage of your convictions.

Despite the overwhelming evidence that it was George Zimmerman screaming and the possibility that Zimmerman may consent to duplicating the screams for further analysis, both you and Mr. Owen have stated definitely that it was not Zimmerman yelling for help. There was no equivocating or discussion of “most probably” or “a good chance” that the voice wasn’t Zimmerman’s, but absolute certainty on both your and Mr. Owen’s part.

This is what I can’t understand. By not hedging your assessment to provide for the strong possibility that it was Zimmerman’s voice calling for help, haven’t you effectively ended your career as an audio forensic expert if and when the findings confirm it was Zimmerman? It seems that in every subsequent case, opposing council will point to your absolute statements to discredit any testimony you give.

As you said, there is no money involved here, so why would you go out on a limb like this?

Have you seen this article yet? http://www.americanthinker.com/2012/04/zimmerman_and_ketman.html

It does a really good job examining Zimmerman's 911 call.

Cecil Turner

"couldn't hit a bull in the ass with a handfull of wheat."

Okay, but is "a bass fiddle" easier or harder?

fdcol63

" .. Google couldn't hit a bull in the ass with a handfull of wheat. ..."

I think the problem is more like Google's Left-wing programmers are constantly busy editing their code to filter all search queries that reflect poorly on Lefty memes and issues.

O/T - just a quick update to something we talked about weeks ago:

A state-agency probe dismissed suspected child- abuse claims against a son of Robert F. Kennedy Jr., The Post has learned.

Douglas Kennedy was cleared of wrongdoing in a complaint stemming from a Jan. 7 altercation with two nurses at Northern Westchester Hospital. The fracas centered on whether he was authorized to take his newborn son from the maternity ward.

jwest

Another thing I don’t understand is why the deceptive editing of the Zimmerman 911 call by NBC is getting all the attention.

I thought the deceptive editing of the video tape of Zimmerman’s arrival at the police station was just as egregious, with MSNBC (and I’m sure NBC too) cutting out the few seconds where a police officer looks at the back of Zimmerman’s head.

Jim,MtnViewCA,USA

Our high schooler saw Inconvenient Truth in school again this year. Last year in a video class, this year in Lit.
Sigh.

fdcol63

Bogus liberal memes die very slowly, if at all.

narciso

Well jwest, the tape, set the template for Zimmerman, as racist, along with the abridged
timeline for paranoia, the video tape was just the cherry on top.

Danube of Thought

We are off shortly for Budapest, where on Friday we will embark on the Viking Odin for a cruise up the--get this--Danube. Never been there.

centralcal

Bon Voyage, Danube! Send pictures, please (Danube on the Blue Danube)

fdcol63

DoT,

Have a great trip! I envy you .... I've always wanted to do a river cruise from Amsterdam all the way to the Black Sea.

Captain Hate

Have a great time, DoT.

A state-agency probe dismissed suspected child- abuse claims against a son of Robert F. Kennedy Jr

I guess that's an ok verdict because I doubt that the child was hurt so it's more or less a victimless crime; assuming no actions will be taken against the nurses who followed the rules to the letter. He's still another Kennedy cur who doesn't think the rules apply to him.

cboldt

Budapesht, home to Zha Zha and Eva Gabor, and Tom Lantos. Happy Trails!

NK

Tactical retreat by the NYT? if yes a rare smart move by pinch's crew.

Google ads? I have the same experience as cboldt and Ig, I get all of that Sherrod Brown and Michelle crap. I too think it's left wing Google programmers screwing with conservatives.

Appalled

Budapest is a unique place with great food and has been a genuine hot water springs spa town since, well, forever.

Captain Hate

I agree, fdcol63; I'd take my Gibbon along and be feverishly leafing through to find where things occurred.

Having taken a "Voyage of the Vikings" cruise around the British Isles starting in Dublin and ending across the North Sea in Norway at Sognefjord, I'd be surprised if I didn't receive a flyer on this one. How funny would it be to meet a JOMer on one of these by the luck of the draw?

Extraneus

I doubt that the child was hurt so it's more or less a victimless crime

What about the nurse he kicked and sent flying ten feet or so? (I still say he'd have likely squeezed the kid to launch her that far.) Hope she gets a payday, anyway.

Captain Hate

Ext I'd forgotten about that. I assume if she was hurt she has grounds for a civil suit if she wishes to pursue that. Otherwise it's just the boorish behavior that gets excused when done by a Kennedy.

Janet

Thanks for the update, centralcal.

Our high schooler saw Inconvenient Truth in school again this year. Last year in a video class, this year in Lit.
Sigh.

Same here, Jim. I bet mine saw it 3 or 4 times each. It was a regular "filler" movie when there was some odd down time.

Frau Donaureise

Gute Reise, DoT. Give my regards to the die schöne Donau.

Another melodic tribute to your namesake.LUN

Janet

from cc's link -
"Westchester authorities arrested and charged Kennedy with a misdemeanor count of child endangerment as well as two lesser charges of harassment. A hearing on the case is due next Wednesday.

But a separate, independent investigation by the state Office of Children and Family Services has already concluded that Kennedy is not a child abuser."

So more to come...

Jane

How very cool Dot! Have a great time. The NRO river cruises are all on Viking ships - often with free booze.

Frau Donaureise

Jim, showing the Goracle's lies to students of any age violates the separation of state and religion.

Doing so repeatedly is cruel and unusual punishment. I'm surprised some students haven't made a spoof of the film.

matt

Bon voyage, DoT. May your thoughts flow like the mighty Danube, or something.

DoT,

Have fun!

--We are off shortly for Budapest, where on Friday we will embark on the Viking Odin for a cruise up the--get this--Danube. Never been there.--

Sounds like the same trip some friends of ours did last year with their son and daughter and each kid's new spouse.
They really enjoyed it.

Sue

Hey, did you know that under Ryan's budget plan, 100s of national parks will close? I know this because Obama, the smartest president evah!! said it. Nevermind there are only 58 national parks to begin with.

rse

fd-that's why the good stuff is always on about page 3.

Some of what I work on shouldn't be out there but the search is based on what I know binds and it is pulling up links that are out there to allow bureaucrats in various countries to look at the same material. One incredibly detailed document from about 10 days ago made no sense from my search unless the participants in that Planet under pressure conference had been given link.

How's this for fun. Been invited to an official sustainability seminar by the a21 authority itself. That will be a big ears afternoon as I learn how they decide what to push for.

centralcal

lol, Sue.

sbw

DoT, do tip a few in the cavern taverns, and sup some soup -- known for their bouillabaisse.

NK

sue@12:38-- there are 57 states, how can there only be 54 national parks?

Porchlight

Enjoy, DoT. Those rinky-dink European rivers are very pretty. I wonder what the explorers thought when they got to the New World and saw our bigass rivers; even the Hudson is simply giant compared to the waterways of Europe.

Sue

He will probably claim he was talking about National Park Service Areas. Come on guys, give him a break. This job his hard. Being sarcastic with little or no facts at hand is hard to do.

Democrats boycott Coke, Walmart over voter ID laws

This kills me...after Coke pushed the World Wildlife Fund green crap in their holiday marketing. Idiots.

daddy

Isn't it about time for Colin Powell to weigh in on the Trayvon Martin case? How have we survived so long without hearing from the unofficial senior spokesman for the Republican Party on this matter?

I want my Colin. I'll even settle for a semi-Colin.

Extraneus

Who has the list of companies we should boycott?

DublinDave

Great he had a gash on the back of his head-let him go.


One question that needs to be answered;when Georgie goes free does he intend to continue following black boys at night time while carrying a loaded weapon?

If not,why not?What would have changed for Georgie?I mean if he believes in the "Stand your ground law",the 2nd amendment and integrity of devoting free time to protecting the community,it only stands to reason that he'll continue following black people he finds suspicous.


Right?

DublinDave

What am I saying "when Georgie goes free"... Georgies already free.

So is he out there, night after night with his loaded gun,following boys,hoping he doesn't have kill them after they realize he's been following them,freak out and defend themselves.

Mmmmmm.

Danube of Thought

"does he intend to continue following black boys at night time while carrying a loaded weapon?"

I assume he'll follow strangers prowling the neighborhood at night regardless of race, color, creed or national origin.

(The lynch mob is becoming dispirited already.)

Thanks for the good wishes, all. We have a Friday night reservation at Gundel. Kicking back with a Bloody in the Red Carpet Room at the moment.

Ignatz

Is it merely coincidence that clarice and DoT disappear in the same week?

Ignatz

Anyone else notice how Trayvon has made it quite acceptable for Democrats to call black young men "boys" once again?
If Denny's had told Trayvon they didn't hire "boys" two months ago, wee DublinDave would be here telling us he was in solidarity with Trayvon's righteous discrimination lawsuit.

Extraneus

I think Zimmerman will take some of his settlement with NBC and move to a nicer place. He'll probably be reluctant to volunteer his time to help others.

Danube of Thought

Cue the Obama campaign rhetoric:

         "The Department of Defense announced today that the convening authority, Office of Military Commissions, referred charges to a military commission in the case of 'United States v. Khalid Sheikh Mohammed, Walid Muhammad Salih Mubarak Bin 'Attash, Ramzi Binalshibh, Ali Abdul Aziz Ali, and Mustafa Ahmed Adam al Hawsawi.'

            "The charges allege that the five accused are responsible for the planning and execution of the attacks of Sept. 11, 2001, in New York, Washington D.C., and Shanksville, Pa., resulting in the killing of 2,976 people.

            "The convening authority referred the case to a capital military commission, meaning that, if convicted, the five accused could be sentenced to death.  Pursuant to the reforms in the Military Commissions Act of 2009, each of the five accused have been provided, in addition to their detailed defense counsel, learned counsel, possessing specialized knowledge and experience in death penalty cases, to assist them in their defense."

Annoying Old Guy

Maybe Dublin Dave would like Zimmerman better if he looked good on a T-shirt like another Irish hero.

DublinDave

"I assume he'll follow strangers prowling the neighborhood at night........"

Great.Except Trayvon Martin wasn't a stranger prowling the neighbourhood,he was a kid staying with his father.

So, when you say that Georgie will continue to carry a loaded weapon on his "Nightwatch",you mean that he'll follow people he deems to be "strangers proonly wling"?Even if they've lived there for years,if Georgie decides that they look suspicous,he'll follow them in the dark.

So really, if george moves into your neighbourhood, you should go and introduce yourself and your children(especially if they're black) to him to avoid having the crap scared out all concerned.Right?.

What about friends and relatives coming to visit on foot?

Melinda Romanoff

Didn't think of that, Ig. I'll go try it outside.

Back in a second.

DublinDave

Sorry...."strangers prowling"

iqvoice

"Georgie?"

Before, he was the man who weighed 270 LBs; now you refer to him with a diminutive.

Before, he was the big scary adult, now he is little "Georgie."

What are you trying to demonstrate, DublinDave, besides your own depravity?

bgates

Anyone else notice how Trayvon has made it quite acceptable for Democrats to call black young men "boys" once again?

It's always been acceptable for Democrats to do that.

Have you noticed that walking behind someone in the dark is now considered sufficient provocation for assault?

bgates

if George moves into your neighbourhood, you should go and introduce yourself and your children(especially if they're black) to him

That's the kind of nightmarish society Republicans want to inflict on us: a world where people introduce themselves to new neighbors.

DublinDave

(The lynch mob is becoming dispirited already.)

Actually, the political capital progressives will garner from this, regardless of the outcome, will be priceless priceless.

1.We have a President and a party that have re-solidified their relationship with the African-American community after a turbulent couple of years.

2.The "Stand your ground" law is on it's way to being repealed in Florida..........what?I felt my life was threatened by that law.I had to act.

3.African-American anger is being re-fueled with all sorts of civil rights goodies coming down the line-good luck with repealing Afirmative action now,righties.

4.Tighter gun control laws(psssst.when we say "control" we really mean don't mean "control"....one step at a time).

Whatever the outcome, Democrats just got themselves a bunch of legislative rewards.

iqvoice

"African-American anger is being re-fueled with all sorts of civil rights goodies coming down the line-good luck with repealing Afirmative action now,righties."

So you admit that Afirmative (sic) Action is nothing but a reverse discrimination program designed to buy black votes?

Enlightening!

iqvoice

I hope DublinDave is a plant, because it pains me to believe that his views are mainstream in the democrat party.

He rejoices that the end result, regardless of the justice of the outcome, will result in the presumed advancement of his pet causes.

He disgusts me.

If you look at the commentary by those of us on the right you see, above all, a pursuit of the truth: the truth about Trayvon Martin, George Zimmerman, and the events of that tragic night.

You look at the commentary of DublinDave, and you see a vulture preying on the dead.

Have a great time,DoT. As Jane says,Viking cruises are wonderful. As you do the stretch from Vienna to Munich, think of me riding a bike along the banks going the opposite direction. Last May,it was.

Possibly like Obama used the bodies of Judge Roll, and little Christina, to create 'a teaching opportunity, although they did not succeed to the same extent as when they used

Secrets hears that Fox News Channel has hired Jesse Jackson’s eldest daughter, Chicago radio host Santita Jackson, as an on-air contributor. The coup is just the latest move by Fox to staff up talkers from the left and build its rep as the nation’s “fair and balanced” cable network.

She will debut Friday at 7:15 a.m. on a Fox & Friends political panel

DublinDave's candor is appreciated. In one short comment, DublinDave ADMITS that: 1. the TMartin 'outrage' has nothing to do with the facts or 'justice' or government accountability, it's all BS to fire up Black voting, and 2. The 'outrage' uses TM-GZ tragedy for the political purposes of passing anti-gun and anti-self defense laws; and 3. They will try to use the case to keep racial 'affirmative action laws' alive. Thanks DublinDave you've just confirmed that Dems/Progs are heartless bastards who trample the rights of individuals to achieve their socialized political goals. Thanks, it 's always good to learn that conservatives were correct all along.

Bon voyage, Danube,

Danube of Thought

"What about friends and relatives coming to visit on foot?"

Partiularly if they're alone and it's after dark, they'd be well advised to identify themselves when queried. Those who elect to throw a haymaker instead do so at their own risk.

Keep us posted as those legislative rewards roll in, Dave.

DoubleDumbDave has been taught that it is morally superior to support immorality.
I'm sorry to be blunt folks, but SKITTLES MARTIN got himself killed. Liberal douchebags drooled like Pavlov's dog at the chance to claim some moral superiority in the "UNJUST" murder of an Angelic Black boy with nothing but Skittles on his mind.
They drooled and knee jerked into the default LIBTARD position. OOOOOOOOPS.
Too stupid, too immoral and too unethical to realize their mistake, LIBTARDS just make up new lies to cover the old ones.
DoubleDumbDave is just a useful idiot for the LEFTS RACIAL GRIEVANCE MONGERS and POVERTY PIMPS. Public schools don't help in this regard. The default position is WHITE BAD, BLACKY GOOD. And dumb f@@Ks like Dave are used by these sick leftist freaks. Examples of the MORALLY ETHICALLY and HONESTY bankrupt LIBTARD LEFT abound. Washerwoman Schultz, Pelosi, Boxer, Rangel, Obama, Rodham, Sebelius. I could go on for hours.

Danube of Thought

Political rewards placed on hold:

"President Barack Obama’s re-election campaign website has removed several videos that pitched alarmist messages to African-American voters, following reporting by The Daily Caller and the Fox News Channel. In one video that the campaign yanked from the 'African-Americans for Obama' section of its website Tuesday, actress Tatyana Ali seemed to predict that a second Obama term would bring a host of benefits to African-Americans once the president no longer had to concern himself with campaigning."

Jane

This week's diversion seem a bad bet. Obama pretty much doubled down on his harassment of the court and I think Holder actually agreed to send the memo to the 5th circuit.

So, what did you pay for gas today? I understand Canada said we have to pay full price because we won't do Keystone and Mexico is really really angry about Fast and Furious.

Captain Hate

Perky Katie may not have done any grind dances which might serve as a fiber substitute, but it seems as if the show wasn't without fireworks:

Couric, meantime, got to oversee — and should have stepped into, but didn’t — a real slug match between legal correspondent Dan Abrams and an unhinged Nancy Grace, who looked like a crazed leprechaun in a terrifying green outfit. They were supposed to discuss the case of a professional cheerleader’s alleged affair with an underage boy.

But, instead, all hell broke loose and Couric looked shaken after Grace went off the rails, screeching like an escaped mental patient, “You’re just all hung up because she’s a hot Bengals cheerleader — so, get past it, Dan Abrams!”

One of the most impressive things I saw while stationed in Germany was the overpass that carried the Main-Donau Kanal over an auto intersection in Furth-Nurnberg.

"If you look at the commentary by those of us on the right you see, above all, a pursuit of the truth:"


If my candour is offensive I apoligize.i'm completely invested in seeing Trayvon Martin receive justice,I believe he was the victim of a hate crime.If you were honest you'd admit that your interests ly in seeing Zimmerman freed.Nothing wrong with that,I just disagree with you.


"You look at the commentary of DublinDave, and you see a vulture preying on the dead"

We live in a Political world and there are outcomes and consequences for every injustice that carry Political weight.That weight can be used to push for legislation addresses that and a whole host of other injustices.It's the way out society works,cause and effect.

All the legislative changes I mentioned above will save lives,grant education to thousand's of kids who otherwise couldn't afford it and correct a whole host of social imbalances.My delivery was snarky,I will admit that.
