    While police officers are getting murdered in Dallas and Baton Rouge, while others are under assault in Missouri, Georgia and Tennessee, while supporters of the Black Lives Matter movement attempt to justify the murders of police officers, the Democratic National Convention, AKA Hillary’s Coronation, will feature the mothers of black men who died in confrontations with police, thereby perpetuating the myth that there is systemic racism in police departments across the nation. One mother who will speak will be Lezley McSpadden, the mother of Michael Brown, the “Gentle Giant” who burgled a convenience store, then attempted to grab the gun...

    Like just about every other person on the left – save for attorney Alan Dershowitz – Hillary Clinton has actively embraced the falsehoods surrounding the 2012 shooting death of Trayvon Martin. Not surprisingly, the living symbol of those fictions, Martin’s birth mother, Sybrina Fulton, has endorsed Hillary. “Sybrina, you and all mothers of gun violence victims have taught us hate will never win,” Hillary tweeted last week. “Thinking of you today.” For the last four years, George Zimmerman has struggled under the weight of this agitprop and is openly hostile to those, like Clinton, who profit from it.

    The gun used by former neighborhood watch volunteer George Zimmerman to kill unarmed teen Trayvon Martin has sold at auction for over $120,000, according to reports. The last bid on the auction site United Gun Group was for $138,000, according to the Orlando Sentinel. TMZ reported its sources saying the last bid was phony, but that the weapon did sell for over $120,000. Zimmerman’s efforts to hawk the infamous weapon have been hampered by fake bids submitted by those offended by crass sale.

    George Zimmerman‘s gun sale attempt isn’t going very well. After having to move his online auction to a new site once already, the bidding on the weapon that killed Trayvon Martin seems to have been taken over by trolls determined to remind Zimmerman of his infamy. Despite his not-guilty verdict for the death of Martin four years ago, Zimmerman is a pariah to many for his apparent non-regret for the incident, and a myriad of controversial statements from him since then. Zimmerman posted the gun to be sold on United Gun Group, but the auction seems to have been taken...

    An online auction appears to have been halted for the pistol that former Florida neighborhood watch volunteer George Zimmerman used to kill unarmed black teenager Trayvon Martin. ADVERTISEMENT The weapon was removed from the GunBroker.com website Thursday, minutes after the auction was to begin. It was not immediately clear why the website took down the listing. Zimmerman had told Orlando, Florida, TV station WOFL that the pistol was returned to him by the U.S. Justice Department, which took it after he was acquitted in Martin's 2012 shooting death. The auction for the 9 mm Kel-Tec PF-9 pistol was to begin...

    Pam Bondi was an early endorser of Trump. She's the attorney general in her second term, an 18-year prosecutor. She's an outsider who became an insider, and she has a good, strong relationship already with the candidate.... I think he's looking for someone that brings something to his ticket that does not go against the narrative he's been selling for the last six months, and I think people like Pam would fit the bill.

That speculation was sparked last month, when Scott penned an op-ed in USA Today, a column in which he wrote very favorably about the New York City business mogul. I know Donald Trump personally, and while I currently have no plans to endorse a candidate before Florida’s March presidential primary, there is no doubt that Donald is a man who speaks and tweets his mind freely.

The Florida man, cleared of charges in the 2012 slaying of black teen Trayvon Martin, used a pair of homophobic slurs and ripped President Obama after a black gunman killed a Virginia television reporter and her cameraman — both white. He also managed to misspell the first name of the killer, Vester Lee Flanagan, and the word “condemning.” “Pansy Fester lee Flanagan, too much of a daisy to deal w/racism,” tweeted Zimmerman on Wednesday. “Murders 2 whites. Hate crime, 100%. Racist Obama says nothing condeming.” Hours...

Finally, on Tuesday of this week, the DOJ announced that it had found insufficient evidence to pursue federal criminal civil rights charges against Zimmerman.
