  • ABC, CBS Distort History to Mark 10th Anniversary of Trayvon Martin's Death

    As ABC and CBS ran reports commemorating the 10th anniversary of black Florida teen Trayvon Martin being shot to death by George Zimmerman, both networks misinformed their viewers, and ABC even imitated the same smear that NBC News was forced to apologize for 10 years ago. As both networks incorrectly implicated Florida's "stand your ground" law for making it easier for Zimmerman to avoid punishment, ABC News correspondent Zachary Kiesch used edited audio of Zimmerman's 911 call, making it sound like the neighborhood watch volunteer had told the dispatcher that Martin seemed suspicious in part because he was black. When...
  • A Decade of Deceit and Division: What Trayvon Wrought

    Although he certainly did not intend to, the drugged and despondent 17-year-old who wandered through a failing Florida subdivision on a rainy February night ten years ago Saturday launched a new phase in the American civil rights movement. This was to be the Jacobin phase, the phase in which traditional civil rights standards such as equality before the law and innocent until proven guilty yielded to mob rule and race-based outcomes. Seventeen-year-old Trayvon Martin would not live to see this transition. The 28-year-old man who shot and killed Trayvon, George Zimmerman, has lived in the shadows of Jacobin justice every...
  • Judge dismisses lawsuit filed by George Zimmerman against family of Trayvon Martin

    A Florida judge has dismissed a defamation and conspiracy lawsuit filed by George Zimmerman against the parents of Trayvon Martin — the teenager he fatally shot in 2012. Axios and The Associated Press report that Tallahassee judge John Cooper dismissed the lawsuit Monday, saying that Zimmerman had failed to show "any fraudulent representation" in his suit. . . . Zimmerman's lawsuit had claimed that a key witness in his 2013 trial, Rachel Jeantel, falsified her claims so she could testify instead of her half-sister, Brittany Diamond Eugene. Zimmerman also claimed a book written by Martin's parents, Sybrina Fulton and Tracy...

    Baltimore is burning because community organizers and various thugs are tearing the city apart in the aftermath of the strange death of a young black man who was in the custody of police — and President Obama is trying to make things worse.In an incredible non-coincidence the rioting follows a weekend rally by the Occupy Wall Street-like Baltimore Peoples Assembly. There also was a first wave of rioting over the weekend. Outside activists have been flooding into Baltimore, according to reports. Police and civilians have been injured. A CVS store was looted and set on fire. Rioters chopped up fire...
  • Boy takes mom's advice to heart, keeps mask on for picture day

    A young boy took his mother's advice on mask-wearing very seriously — maybe a little too seriously. When Nicole Peoples got her son's school picture day photos this year, she was shocked by the results. Her son's eyes weren't closed, he didn't have a stain on his shirt and his hair looked fine. But there was something wrong with his smile; he didn't have one. That's because it was being blocked by a mask. Peoples turned to Facebook to share the photos, explaining that her son, Mason, really took her rules on not taking his mask off to heart. Photographer:...

    Joel Gilbert has produced a superb work of investigative journalism. If the old media were not complicit in the hoax, this would be front-page news across the nation. A travesty of justice was perpetrated against George Zimmerman. The two-hour documentary shows how and why it was done. Full disclosure: This correspondent has written extensively on the Trayvon Martin – George Zimmerman case. I was one of the first to defend George Zimmerman, to declare the case was being used for political purposes. AmmoLand News has also reported in depth on the event with in-person interviews.Joel Gilbert’s documentary and investigative work...

    American Thinker.com ^ | September 5, 2020 | Parker Beauregard
    Trial lawyer and ambulance-chaser Benjamin Crump needs to go away. Formerly the president of the Florida Bar — which reflects poorly on the Florida Bar — Crump has risen to fame defending black victims of our racist society. A lot of the words in that last sentence are subjective. As the following rundown will show, he's either a terrible lawyer or just a scumbag looking for a quick payday. It could also be both. You surely recognize his name, but do you know his record defending black criminals? It is appalling. In fact, history almost guarantees that when Crump signs...

    George Zimmerman wants a day in court against two of the leading Democratic presidential contenders, accusing them of defamation. In a lawsuit filed Tuesday in Florida, the man who killed Trayvon Martin in self-defense in 2012 accused Pete Buttigieg and Sen. Elizabeth Warren of “maliciously defam[ing]” Mr. Zimmerman, using the killing “as a pretext to demagogue and falsely brand Zimmerman as a white supremacist and racist to their millions of Twitter followers.” Mr. Zimmerman was acquitted of all charges on traditional self-defense grounds, because Martin attacked him and beat his head against the ground, supposedly for profiling the black teen...

    Hoping to fan racial flames in his direction before the South Carolina primary, Pete Buttigieg tweeted out his support for Trayvon Martin on the occasion of what would have been Martin's 25th birthday, February 5. "Trayvon Martin would have been 25 today," Mayor Pete tweeted. "How many 25th birthdays have been stolen from us by white supremacy, gun violence, prejudice, and fear?" Buttigieg threw in a Black Lives Matter hashtag just to make sure black voters knew he was down for the struggle. This tweet would have been unfortunate six months ago. Today, it is unforgivable. In December, attorney Larry...

    Democrat presidential hopeful Elizabeth Warren used Trayvon Martin’s birthday, February 5, as a springboard Thursday to drive her own gun control agenda. My heart goes out to @SybrinaFulton and Trayvon's family and friends. He should still be with us today. We need to end gun violence and racism. And we need to build a world where all of our children—especially young Black boys—can grow up safe and free. https://twitter.com/FredTJoseph/status/1225030890969075713 …

    My new film and best-selling book of the same name, The Trayvon Hoax: Unmasking the Witness Fraud that Divided America, has made real inroads into the public consciousness as regards the witness fraud in the George Zimmerman trial. However, the publicity effort has been battling what I have come to call “The Gospel of Trayvon.” “The Gospel of Trayvon” is the fiction into which black Americans have been indoctrinated for almost eight years. The Gospel maintains that across America there are armed white men in the streets, cops especially, eager to shoot unarmed black people at the slightest suspicion and...

    On this week’s broadcast of “Fox News Sunday,” anchor Chris Wallace asked White House adviser Pam Bondi if President Donald Trump understood a free and fair press covers both sides of the story. Wallace said, “President Trump tweeted late yesterday that we, Fox News Sunday, should not even be doing an interview with James Comey or with Adam Schiff.” He added, “My question, Pam, is does the president understand that it’s the duty of a free and fair press to cover both sides of the story?” Bondi said, “Of course he does. I think he so tired of hearing all...
  • Central Witness In Trayvon Martin Trial Was Imposter, George Zimmerman Said In $100M Suit

    The Trayvon Martin case was built on a fraud, with a key witness being swapped out with an imposter when the real witness wouldn’t testify, George Zimmerman said in a lawsuit Wednesday. The lawsuit says Martin was on the phone with his girlfriend, a vivacious 16-year-old named Brittany Diamond Eugene, when Zimmerman killed him on Feb. 26, 2012. At trial, prosecutors produced the plump, slow-spoken 18-year-old Rachel Jeantel as the girl who had crucial insight into his final moments by being on the phone with him. The lawsuit says Eugene refused to provide the version of events used to build...

    More than seven years after he fatally shot their unarmed teen son, George Zimmerman is coming after Trayvon Martin’s parents — for millions of dollars. The neighborhood watch volunteer is suing Martin’s parents and others for $100 million in a proceeding filed Wednesday in Polk County, Fla. Zimmerman was acquitted of a second-degree murder charge in 2013, but the suit contends the only reason he was charged in the first place was due to testimony from a “fake witness” — Rachel Jeantel, who at one point was identified as Eugenia Diamond, a nickname — but who the lawsuit alleges are...

    Big media balks at the term "fake news," insisting that they honestly and accurately report the news of the day. Those paying attention to the news can cite numerous examples of fake news, either deliberate misinformation or laziness on the part of reporters. Joel Gilbert, in his book and film of the same name, The Trayvon Hoax: Unmasking the Witness Fraud that Divided America, describes one of the biggest examples of “fake news” in modern times: that the prosecution’s key witness in the trial of George Zimmerman was in imposter. Joel demonstrated a long-lost art, investigative journalism, and he did...

    Sybrina Fulton has earned another big-time national endorsement in her Miami-Dade County Commission race, as U.S. Sen. Cory Booker says he’ll be backing Fulton’s bid. Booker, who is currently running for the 2020 Democratic presidential nomination, joins former Democratic presidential candidate Hillary Clinton in supporting Fulton. Clinton announced her support late last week. Fulton is the mother of Trayvon Martin, who was shot and killed in an altercation with George Zimmerman back in 2012. She’s competing against Miami Gardens Mayor Oliver Gilbert III for the District 1 Commission seat. Booker referenced the 2012 shooting in his announcement supporting Fulton’s campaign....

    After a painstaking investigation into the Trayvon Martin shooting, I have produced a film and written a companion book, both called The Trayvon Hoax: Unmasking the Witness Fraud that Divided America. Only after I started the project did I realize I had stumbled onto the most spectacular case of identity fraud in modern American judicial history. Thanks to the folks at American Thinker for allowing me to reveal it here for the first time. I had originally set out to produce a documentary about the rise of 2018 Florida gubernatorial candidate Andrew Gillum. The more I looked into Gillum’s success,...
