Our phony justice system

Not because George Zimmerman was acquitted, which he certainly deserved to be, but because of the way the state of Florida tried, desperately, to convict him of something, anything, to keep the racists happy.

“…if Floridians are of a mind to let off a little steam, they might usefully burn down the Sanford courthouse and salt the earth. The justice system revealed by this squalid trial is worth rioting over.”

An all-woman jury for a male defendant? What was that about? Six jurors instead of twelve? What am I missing here?

Possibly that Florida was merely following the trend at the federal level, which wins more than 90 percent of its cases, principally because they hit the defendant with so many charges that the jury feels like it’s being reasonable to only convict on one or two of them.

It’s a record which, as Mark Steyn notes, certainly would impress the House of Saud. Only Kim Jon Un is likely to close in on 100 percent.

Our in-house editor, Mrs Charm, frequently reminds us that criminal justice these days is about plea bargaining and and not much else. Even Jimmy Carter knows our democracy is dying.

UPDATE:  Florida law says the acquitted Zimmerman gets his gun back. The feds, however, tell Florida not to obey its own law. Justice denied again.

MORE:  Meanwhile, our narcissist president (everything is about him) weighs in once more:  “If Trayvon was a white teen, he said, ‘both the outcome and the aftermath might have been different.’” The “show” must go on until the polls close in 2014.

At last: Agreeing with Dhimmi

Unfortunately the champion of Palestinian murderers and world dictators generally has so little political credibility that his new coming out for an end to the drug war will have little influence. Pity that.

Although Dhimmi Carter (h/t Monkey In The Middle) is a great, alternative name for him.

Unhappy Father’s Day for Noam Shalit

Three years after Hamas kidnapped Israeli soldier Gilad Shalit, the terrorist group that former President Jimmy Carter recently asked be removed from the U.S. terrorist list, still has not provided his family any news of his health. Let alone agreed to release him or even allow him access to the International Red Cross.

Now the Jewish Community Association of Austin is joining in a JTA e-letter campaign to urge President Obama to not forget Gilad’s father, Noam, and his friends praying for Gilad’s safe return as former President Carter apparently has. Especially not on this Father’s Day.

Setup

Terrorist group Hamas turns Carter away from Gaza’s gate? I think I can tell a setup when I see one.

UPDATE  I figured they’d make a show of letting him in, afterall, but they didn’t. In fact, he got little Israeli coverage, either. Go build houses, Jimmy. At least you look good doing that.

Carter advisers bail

Carter’s slimey, one-sided, anti-Israel book causes him more trouble, this time from within his own organization:

"ATLANTA — Fourteen members of an advisory board at the Carter Center resigned today, concluding they could ‘no longer in good conscience continue to serve’ following publication of former President Jimmy Carter’s controversial book, ‘Palestine Peace Not Apartheid.’"

Yeah, I’ll go for "controversial." Full of lies also works. But I’m sure his Arab Muslim financiers like it.

UPDATE More on Carter’s Arab Muslim backers, of his peanut farm and Carter Center, here and here. The fellow some admirers hail for "restoring morality" to the presidency, is in for more than $20 million and counting, including some from the Bin Laden family. Yeah, that Bin Laden family. All perfectly legal, apparently. But it rather undermines any claim to impartial judgement.

Carter on the take

The sanctimonious old fraud would have you believe that he likes to write books in which he lectures Israel because the democratic Jewish state is committing apartheid against the terrorist Palestinians by walling off their efforts to suicide-bomb buses and cafes. Or is it really because Carter’s dictatorial Arab cronies are paying him to do it?

"According to the Carter Center Web site’s 2004-05 annual report—the most recent available—the center has received ‘in excess of $1 million’ from characters like Prince Al-Walid bin Talal. Bin Talal, you might recall, is the Saudi prince who insultingly offered $20 million to New York Mayor Rudolph Giuliani in the smoldering ruins of the World Trade Center. The cash was held out not because the prince cared about terrorism but to rub in that the attack was really a byproduct of the Palestine conflict."

Jimmy Carter is evil

There you have it. Cut to the chase. No more pussyfooting when it comes to Mr. Peanut, whose latest book is, as one former supporter turned critic has called it, "a poisoned holiday gift for Jews and Christians, and a danger to Jews throughout the world." It made me nauseated the other day when I saw a photo in the daily of people lined up around the block at an Austin book store to get an autographed copy of Carter’s bizarre new screed "Palestine: Peace or Apartheid," in which he just flat lies his pants off. The 82-year-old crank was inside the store in person, smiling his demonic smile, including at one poor woman who reportedly gushed that she’d named her new born "Carter" in Jimmy’s honor. Austin is full of the "antiwar" Left, which can be counted on to demonstrate against Israel. Many of them are aging, whacked-out hippies with brains so fried by cocaine and malathion-sprayed Mexican marijuana that they can be pardoned for thinking they’re still living in the sixties and Iraq is Vietnam all over again. If you lived here you wouldn’t get worked up over them. This is, after all, a town full of professional demonstrators. But Carter. Yipes. Bookworm has a good post on him and his awful book, which includes the most succinct analysis of the Muslim-Israel conflict I’ve ever seen, by David Horowitz, which includes this little analogy which will be near and dear to some Texans:

"It is a lie that Palestinians ‘had their own land, first of all, occupied.’ This is like saying that Texans had their own land occupied by Hispanics, ignoring the fact that Hispanics were there first."

UPDATE  Israeli historian Michael B. Oren ("Six Days of War: June 1967 and the Making of the Modern Middle East") says Carter has a religion problem with Israel: "His book bewails the fact that Israel is not the reincarnation of ancient Judea but a modern, largely temporal democracy."
