Trayvon, George, Witness 9 & Other Obama Political Casualties

Let me start with the one truly relevant fact in this entire story. I’m going to repeat it later but let’s get it out right away.

The entire Trayvon Martin / George Zimmerman story was amped up into a national story on purpose by President Obama with the help of his surrogate Al Sharpton in order to help win the 2012 election.

News broke yesterday about a new, explosive wrinkle in the George Zimmerman / Trayvon Martin shooting story — as the Orlando Sentinel headline says ‘Witness 9′ tells prosecutors Zimmerman molested her for years:

The words of “witness 9” were dramatic: Murder suspect George Zimmerman sexually abused me for years while we were children, she told prosecutors.

Although her allegation is damning, it likely will play no role in Zimmerman’s second-degree murder trial, defense lawyers agreed Monday.

“This isn’t a molestation case. It’s not relevant,” said South Florida defense lawyer Michael Grieco.

Zimmerman, 28, killed Trayvon Martin, an unarmed, black 17-year-old, in Sanford Feb. 26, in what has become one of the most-watched criminal cases in the country.

It’s not relevant and it will play no role but of course; whatever. Welcome to the news cycle, Witness 9.  The accusations of molestation by Zimmerman — who was one year older than his accuser, by the way — was all over the news today and will be for the rest of the week and beyond, where it will live in back of juror’s minds.

Try this test : don’t think about a pink elephant. Now, forget you ever heard about George Zimmerman and molestation.

The mainstream media will likely keep referring to ‘Witness 9′ for a few days but her real name is already out there and I’ve made the decision not to pretend it isn’t.

NBC News site The Grio did a story entitled Conservative blog Zimmerman’s lawyer sought ‘chat’ with outs Witness 9 and they were apparently trying to be clever or something because they state that they refuse to link to the story that names Witness 9. However, this attempt pretending to stay above the fray was joke. Based on info in the Grio article, it took me five seconds using Google — cut, copy, paste, enter — to find the source of the story.

For better worse, a blog that I don’t remember seeing before — The Conservative Treehouse — has done the rapid research and outed Witness 9′s real name as Christina Johnson nee Christina Meza. The commenters also turned up other info on Ms. Meza, including lots of personal data and what appear to be some legal issues.

The blog seems to have a Christian Conservative perspective and it has a big banner about Andrew Breitbart right up top. This is going to make some people’s heads explode — especially on the already conspiratorial left — even though the site has no official connection with Breitbart at all as far as I know. Since Andrew was a friend of mine and I worked with him on stories for months, I’m going to state as my personal opinion that Andrew wouldn’t have run that info on Ms. Meza until it was already well out there in the mainstream press. That’s not a criticism. It’s just my opinion and it’s worth what you paid for it.

The Grio points out that the people behind the The Conservative Treehouse blog are, ironically, anonymous bloggers themselves. For how long? Check your watch. Here’s a guess — that won’t last long, either. As you read this, doubtlessly someone is rapidly researching who the writers are behind the Treehouse are and just as surely if any of them have DUIs, bankruptcies, talkative ex-spouses, estranged children or anything else, it’ll be out there soon enough.

Information wants to be free. The info is out there and if blame for that needs to be placed for the people lives that are about to be turned upside down and examined, let’s at least blame the right people. No, don’t blame the late Andrew Breitbart, obviously. Don’t even blame The Conservative Treehouse; if they weren’t first with the rapid research, someone else would have been. Don’t blame the prosecutors for releasing the info about Witness 9, even though it’s pretty clear they did it for no other reason than to taint the jury pool.

Place the blame where it should be placed.

The entire Trayvon Martin / George Zimmerman story was amped up into a national story on purpose by President Obama with the help of his surrogate Al Sharpton in order to help win the 2012 election.

The discussion of racism as it applies to Ms. Meza’s statements to the police is only relevant because attorney Crump, Rev. Sharpton and ultimately President Obama created a false narrative that the Martin shooting is metaphor for a racist America where black teens live in constant fear of being gunned down by white people; a narrative that is completely, factually false.

As for the rest of it, I’m not all that interested in the back and forth.  It’s an easy game to fall into but I’m going to try and avoid it.  It doesn’t matter to the story. Ms. Meza’s accusations against Mr. Zimmerman, true or not, aren’t relevant to the facts of the Zimmerman / Martin case. Therefore any accusations about Ms. Meza, true or not, aren’t relevant either. Avoid that trap.

I actually feel badly for pretty much every person involved who has been sucked into being puppets on the wider stage of race card politics; everyone, from the Martin family, to Zimmerman and his family, to Ms. Meza and her family, to the town of Sanford that has been unfairly tarred with charges of racism to the people who came in buses to Sanford to protest at the urging of Obama political machine flunkies like the NAACP. These people are all be used and manipulated and played like puppets and it’s all awful because there are real people here whose lives are effected.

And for what?

To keep Obama in power, that’s what.

  2. When they’re that close in age, isn’t it called “playing doctor?”

  3. When Sharpton came to town Zimmerman should have left. The legal system can’t help him anymore.
