I confess I'm amazed. Good news for Zimmerman is thin on the ground lately.

Panzer Faust

I was hoping for the convention thread. But the right to self defense is more important. Contribute to Zimmerman's defense fund, please.


Are judges required to wear a cone of shame, when the appellate bench tells them their bias was so blatant it can not be overlooked? There was a time when I reflexively backed the criminal justice system. But then I started paying attention and started noticing common sense and blind pursuit of justice was in shockingly short supply...


Why would you blindly support anything gmax?

Jim Ryan

Would someone please post how well McCain does. Smattering of polite applause? Pretty well? Thx.

It's as flawed as many other human endeavors, Gmax. You just have to hope that good people get put in positions of authority, but there really aren't enough of them to go around.


I was somewhat surprised the writ of prohibition was granted, even though, in my opinion, the facts supported disqualification under Florida's standards. Lots of lawyers claimed there was no chance the petition would be granted, but they often seemed to be uninformed about the specifics of Florida law. A federal appeals court would almost certainly not disqualify a judge under the same circumstances -- but this isn't in federal court.


I'm curious. Why wouldn't a federal appeals court judge or panel not disqualify a judge under the same circumstances?

Ah, he said "blind pursuit of justice". What he said and you said have two very different meanings.


Liberals gleefully sacrifice others to further their narrative. Just ask Lenin, Stalin, Mao and Pol Pot.


PILATE: But what is truth? Is truth a changing law?
We both have truths. Are mine the same as yours?
MOB: Crucify him! Crucify him!
PILATE: What do you mean? You'd crucify your king?
MOB: We have no king but Caesar!
PILATE: He's done no wrong. No, not the slightest thing.
MOB: We have no king but Caesar! Crucify him!
PILATE: Well this is new, respect for Caesar.
Till now this has been noticeably lacking.
Who is this Jesus?
Why is he different?
You Jews produce messiahs by the sackful.
CROWD: We need him crucified, it's all you have to do.
PILATE: Talk to me Jesus Christ.
Look at your Jesus Christ.
I'll agree he's mad.
Ought to be locked up,
But that is not a reason to destroy him. He's a sad little man,
Not a King or God.
Not a thief, I need a crime!

About time. Now, if they could get that DA disqualified for the leaks, language, etc., Zimmerman might get a fair trial. How 'bout a gag order, as well.

Judges like this need to be censured and removed.

I am skeptical of the cjs


I'm curious. Why wouldn't a federal appeals court judge or panel not disqualify a judge under the same circumstances?

Except in extreme circumstances, federal judges are only disqualified for extra-judicial bias. Extra-judicial bias is bias from something other than the evidence or conduct the judge observed in the court proceedings. So if the defendant were suing the judge in a different case, that would be extra-judicial bias. In the Zimmerman case, the judge's bias was based on conduct within the case.

(I'm sure DoT or some other lawyer will correct me if I'm wrong.)


I don't know about other states, but in CA, one does not ask for judge to be removed without very good reason. Judges tend to stick together and look out for their own. Asking to have a judge removed an have large consequences for an attorney.


I'm not sure if things have changed, but I recently read an early 90s case where the appeals court groused that south Florida attorneys were seeking disqualification at the drop of a hat. Perhaps because the bar for disqualification is quite low in Florida, judges don't take it too personally.

Greg Q

Sweet. That's wonderful news. Here's hoping the next judge takes it to heart.

Jonathan Cohen

The judge may have wanted to get removed from the case. The case has been out of the news for awhile but when the trial occurs it will be center stage and no matter what the judge does he will be hated by some.

When the president of the United States has weighed in already and prejudiced the case before he had much of a clue about the actual evidence, you can see why any judge would want to steer clear of the mess.


If the judge wanted off the case, he could have granted the motion to disqualify. I think the judge was just mad at the Zimmermans for what he saw as an attempt to pull the wool over his eyes in the bond hearing, and madder still that case law from the state supreme court wouldn't let him punish Zimmerman by denying bail. He kept Zimmerman in jail for a month before holding another bond hearing, and essentially fined him $85K by upping the bail. But that wasn't enough, so he lobbied the state to file an additional felony charge, and kept a contempt charge as a backup plan.

Jane - Get off the couch your country needs you!

Who appointed him?


The judge is probably relying upon the veracity of the prosecutor's office.


Ouch. I think the Judge will have some trouble sitting down for a while.

Carol Herman

Okay. Out goes Lester.

What's next? Won't the new judge have to look at the million dollar bail? That wasn't fair!

Given that Zimmerman's served time in jail ... He's already SERVED TIME FOR NO REASON!

Can he yet clear his name?

A sane judge would have dismissed the charges against Zimmerman, because there was no murder! Just self defense! And, the media will have to deal with this.




that sounds good

The gods need to admit the connection between me and AirFranceConcorde & US Space Shuttle explosions/end of the programs

Let me illustrate the power of their technology:::
The gods create the perception of global warming by beeming heat into (cold out) of the polar icepacks, ultimately causing rising sea levels. As they can listen to your thoughts and affect your behavior so can they the animal kingdom, which is behind the changing migrating patterns of hundreds of millions of birds and animals all at once, changing growth patterns for foliage as well as the changing weathern patterns we all experience.
Similarly, the gods can alter your percption of food. They can beem sugar out of fruit, flavor out of meat.
I suspect like the biotechnology issue they use genetic engineering to accomplish the goal of bland produce (and reduced nutrition) to eliminate their culpability, but do not paint with such a broad brush. Rather it occurrs on an individual-by-individual basis. This way they can maintain control::::Conditioning/reinforcement and denial at the same dinner table.
Realize they can also affect taste, so their options are open. As with the retard, military draft vs. volunteer force and other examples from earlier, expect it boils down to an issue of culpability::If the gods don't accept blame they don't have to "make it up to us" and the decay we experience accelerates when you are reincarnated without their assistance.

The gods placed us all into our own corners of the globe. As such for thousands of years we spent time and reproduced with out own kind.
This is why mobilty/travel, biracial unions/offspring and partaking of other cultures is a sin::::
Each has it's own elements of disfavor, and by experiencing other cultures you are being exposed to these disfavors, which if people may adopt will make their state even worse than prior.
The United States has been considered a "melting pot" where rejects from around the world were sent when kicked out of their motherland.
Remember, this concept of cultural diversity is an element of the liberal platform the gods used to promote societal decay, revealed on the map with the "beast" that is the SanFranciscoBayArea and the spread of social deterioration that spread to the rest of the country and eventually to the entire globe.

The gods are in possession of absolute power and always have had total control over proceedings on Planet Earth using the tools at their disposal to manage and achieve the desired perception and results in society. One of these tools is clone "clone host" fake people.
As people age the gods bestow wisdom according to their level of favor. All people would achieve this wisdom at some level, and some would change their path in life. Because of the importance of the upper eschelons in Earth's decay the gods used this tool of clone hosts to ensure nothing changes as would when their "reals" learned::A constant turnover of eager 20 year-old preditors fresh out of high school ensures a fresh new supply of young people eager to "earn". Ironic it is the youth who ensures Planet Earth's stagnation, whereas society says something quite opposite.
Only through a historical event like this Situation is large-scale change possible. It's not only an issue of the 20 year-olds learning they made a mistake with their choice but also of the gods still being willing to allow this macro change.

As with some things in this life "less is more". Sex is one of those things. They used the liberal age to promote casual "free" sex intentionally::Combined with "women's lib" and their initiation into the "trenches" of the workplace people experineced a mass masculinization of their females.
The gods use sex as temptation. This is why the most disfavored among us are preoccupied with it. While some may feel being well-endowed is a sign of favor the truth is just the opposite. And often the result is misogyny, a belittling of the favored gender, and stagnation of the people as a whole.
Less is more. When young women experience passing thoughts which say you're doing something wrong instead of fighting or dismissing the though you should heed the warning. Sadly in today's world too many experience prolonged periods of promiscuity in their lives, whereas if married by 15 like throughout human history this disfavor was avoided.

The gods used Christainity as temptation to repel people away from themselves. The pentagram is charecterized by xtianity as a symbol of Satan but ironically the reality is the opposite:::The god's holy symbol. Similarly, the penticle, the reverse pentagram, is the real symbol of hatred of the gods. As far as the gods see it if those foolish enough to behave in this manner hate the gods then they should have the real thing, which will cost them in the end.
Don't forget::::It is not a house of Jesus.
Christianity is evil. It is responsible for slavery of Africans. It is responsible for this wicked reject dumping ground known as the United States which was used to destroy the Old World around the globe.
There is a major difference between how Europe and the rest of the world were inflicted with xtianity:::Push vs. pull strategy. As a result, expect the "1000 years with Jesus on Earth" may be reserved for the Europeans and few others who were forced into this evil religion:::The god's management of culpability defines the level of compensation everyone receives.
The god's primary goal with this Situation was their minimization of culpability arising from inflicting us with the 20th century and/or liberal counter-culture. Everything I have taught is true. Now that this Situation is complete the disfavored have been taught. The gods are no longer/minimally responsible from this point forward, pitiful "reach around" compensation for ruining your Planet Earth, which is what liberalism has done. Their empty promise to me "We'll make it up to him." has been met with similar inadequate compensation in your case, and the gods will find a way to wash their hands of this obligation to me as well.
If they were honest how little they ultimately intended to grant us our sacrifice would have ended long ago, but they used this lie "We'll make it up to them." to further our misery, with absolution of obligation on the agenda for the future.
My experience is obscene. I paid everything. But at least the gods got what they wanted.

The gods offered Clues about my importance, who I am. They occurr on a weekly, even a DAILY basis. The tip of the iceberg is listed below::
Air France's Concorde
Christa McAuliffe, Concord, NH
Carnaval's Costa Concordia
Concord:::In the "eye of The Beast"
Downey Savings
1998:: "He gets 4 years.", "(His chance is OVER!!)":::2.1.03 (SS Columbia) & 11.26.03 (AĆ©rospatiale-BAC Concorde).
My miracle of Ocean Beach, witnessed by MILLIONS on the West Coast
Diablo's Mt. Zion:::Slowly being eaten away until one day paradise is gone forever
Carry That Weight
Unit 731::TSUSHOGO
Zastava Koral

Had I did the right thing and prayed/worked on my problems instead their audience would have been decieved with developments::::
1. When I got sick, punishment for being PUSHED into my evil, they would have told the disfavored I was being fucked for not doing as I was told.
2. When I continued and reached the maximum progress the gods would allow in this life they would have killed me and sold it to the disfavored as if I refused to change. This would have effectively eliminated any dissention and/or attempts to change on their own.
Both these developments are good, contrary to appearances. The goal in life is to make as much progress as quickly as possible and be reincaranted, for society is constantly in a state of decay, enhancing temptations, and new things are added which could trip up a young candidate. The addition of HD video games and social media illustrate how new media captures targetted genders.
As it turned out I instead explained how the gods do business, how they used liberal politics to accelerate the path of deterioration. Also realize how crucial this is, a requirement to the disfavored's ability to change their lives, because they needed to understand before they could accept they went the wrong way for all these decades.

I'll go in this way and find my own way out.
Don't follow me.

Yeah -- you're right :) Since this is polar integration there's that extra factor of r I dropped. Luckily, people under estimate area relationships for larger circles around small ones, so it sort of compensates for that ;)
