    Each day, I more and more come to find news anchors and reporters on television to be throw-away people, useless people, rotten people, and evil people.  There is so much evidence that most news anchors and reporters are nothing more than puppets for the Democratic Party, though it is clear the Democratic Party is a communist party and socialist party and anti-The United States Constitution, which for an enslavism form of government for the country.  Of course, I have the same opinion of newspaper people as a rule, especially all of those tied to left-wing rags, such as The New York Times and The Washington Post.  When you write or broadcast purposely for the purpose of teaching people lies and idiocy, you get no respect from me.  Now, let me show you what an honest man and a good man reports, shown here in another edition of T.H.A.T..

    Since January 20, 2009, when Barack Obama became the U.S. President, a lot of rotten people in the country--who have tried to hide their true natures--have shown their true natures, and the event that was Trayvon Martin death/George Zimmerman murder trial in Florida covering parts of 2012 and 2013 has really brought out and shown off the corrupt and bad natures of people, especially in Barack Obama (once again).  On February 26, 2012, a man named George Zimmerman shot at young man named Trayvon Martin in Sanford, Florida.  Some of what happened after that was the Barack Obama administration pushed to have George Zimmerman tried for murder, though local authorities could not justify taking George Zimmerman to court at first (a police chief was fired for balking at following, in essence, the ways of Barack Obama, and others were removed from the case), and the U.S. Department of Justice (headed by Eric Holder and ultimately by Barack Obama) spent U.S. taxpayer money to fuel protests against George Zimmerman in Florida (as would be learned by the public in July 2013 from an entity called Justical Watch).

    Remember some facts.  One, the prosecution was involved in picking the jury, which ultimately ended up being made up of six women.  Two, the George Zimmerman murder trial--which was a local-juristiction case and not a federal case and had nothing to do with federal-government law or the federal government.  Three, on Saturday, July 13, 2013, in the evening, the verdict was announced, and George Zimmerman was pronounced to be no guilty or anything.

    Now look at the crap that later showed up, which your favorite newscaster probably did not pass along to you, and if the newscaster did not, the newscaster is a rotten person.

    Eric Holder--the head of the U.S. Department of Justice--spoke to people at the Delta Sigma Theta Convention Social Action Luncheon on Monday, July 15, 2013.  He said, for instance--"...Now, of course, as this celebration unfolds, we are also mindful of the pain felt by our nation surrounding the tragic unnecessary shooting death of Trayvon Martin in Sanford, Florida, last year.  And we are cognizant of the fact that the state trial reached its conclusion over the weekend.  As parents, as engaged citizens, and as leaders who stand vigilant against violence in communities across the country, the Delta's are deeply and rightly concerned about this case.  The Justice Department shares your concern.  I share your concern.  And as we first acknowledged last spring, we have opened an investigation into this matter...."  and "...Independent of the legal determination that will be made, I believe that this tragedy provides yet another opportunity for our nation to speak honestly about the complicated and emotionally charged issue that this case has raised.  We must not as we have too often in the past let this opportunity pass...."  [By the way, Eric Holder said that same words--roughly--before a meeting of the NAACP event in Florida the following day.]  The words spoken by Eric Holder show off the rotten mind of the man, and because Barack Obama hired him, the words show off the rottenness of Barack Obama.

    On Monday, July 15, 2013, Vinnie Politan of HLN network interviewed Angela Corey and Bernie de la Rionda, the main prosecutors in the George Zimmerman murder trial.
    Angela Corey, the state prosecutor for the Fourth Judicial Circuit Court, said in one word in an answer to one question, which was used to describe George Zimmerman (who had been pronounced innocent): "...Murderer...."
    Bernie de la Rionda, the chief prosecutor on case, said in one word to the same question: "...Lucky...."
    Two words show off the rottenness of the minds of Angela Corey and Bernie de la Rionda.

    On the Record with Greta Van Susteren is a weekday program shown on the Fox News Channel, and on Monday, July 15, 20013, one guest on the program was Jasmine Rand, who was an attorney representing the Trayvon Martin family, and some of what Jasmine Rand said is: "...We're still obviously disappointed a the outcome of not guilty.  I'd like to point out that not guilty does not necessarily mean that George Zimmerman was innocent...." and "...We have had an outcry of support from the nation and from the international community.  We've had statements from President Obama, from Attorney General Eric Holder.  So we're hopeful that we may still get some justice for Trayvon...." and "...I do not believe that Trayvon got equal justice...." and "...I d, I don't think that they [the jury] properly considered the evidence.  If they had listened to the evidence and if they had followed the law, then George Zimmerman would have been convicted of murder...." and "...I have a greater duty beyond being an attorney, and that's to be a social engineer.  And when the law doesn't get it right, I believe that we have the right to peacefully and morally, conscientiously object to the decision of the jury...." and "...Courtroom do not always deliver justice, as I'm sure you well know...." and "...I think that when I'm talking about being a social engineer, George Zimmerman never would have been arrested if it wasn't the outcry from black people, brown people, white people, Republicans, Democrats, Christians, and Muslims in this nation who demanded his arrest.  He was then arrested, and he was tried by a jury of his peers.  I do not believe that the jur, that the jury got it right, and the federal government has every right to bring a claim.  And the federal government has every right to bring the claim...."  What Jasmine Rand pass along is high-level nonsense and evilness, and, for example, her bringing up the idea of "social engineer" shows that she has no respect for law and laws, and that is the sign of a person who is rotten and should not hold the type of job she holds.

    Barack Obama--through the U.S. Department of Justice--purposely worked to incite racial hatred of George Zimmerman around the time a court case against George Zimmerman was being considered, and that is bad, and more evil work came after the court case against George Zimmerman was ended.  On Monday, July 15, 2013, the U.S. Department of Justice--particularly or directly Tom Perez (who was the Assistant Attorney General and who was being considered as the person to take over control of the National Labor Relations Board of the federal government)--ran a special meeting, such as by telephone, with such entities as the NAACP Legal Defense and Education Fund (a communistic-entity for blacks), the ACLU (a socialistic/communistic/radical entity) and, in directly, with the American public, that was designed to get people to turn in any--any--information about George Zimmerman that could show that he is a racist so that a federal civil rights case could be brought against him, and on the day, it was reported that a special email address was going to soon be made available (www.Sanford.florida@usdoj.gov) that could be used to report "tips" [Shapiro, Ben.  "DOJ Asks Civil Rights Groups, General Public for 'Tips' on Zimmerman."  Breitbart.com, 16 July 2013, 2:06 p.m. EDT.].  The action was high-degree rottenness, in which the federal government was soliciting people find anything--any little thing, such as any little thing unrelated to the Trayvon Martin incident--from George Zimmerman's past to show that he was or is a racist so that the federal government could take George Zimmerman to trial, such as on a hate-crime issue, and that idea shows the rottenness within the federal government of the United States of America today.

    A "stand-your-ground" law or the "stand-your-law" idea had nothing to do with the George Zimmerman case--it was not brought up by either the prosecution or the defense during the trial--and during the week of Monday, July 15, 2013, people were pushing the issue that the "stand-your-ground law" in Florida was a part of the George Zimmerman case, and people, particularly Democrats, such as the U.S. Attorney General Eric Holder, was pushing the idea that such laws should be, in essence, canceled and removed from the books of the states that have such laws.  For example, on Tuesday, July 16, 2013, Eric Holder said: "...Separate and apart from the case that has drawn the nation's attention, it's time to question laws that senselessly expand the concept of self-defense and sew dangerous conduct in our neighborhoods.  These laws try to fix something that was never broken....", and, late in the day, for instance, ABC News Radio pushed the issue, such as through the mouth of Richard Cantu..., several times that a "stand-your-ground" law was involved in the case [which was said, it seems, to support the wishes of Eric Holder and the words of Eric Holder of earlier in the day and ultimately, it has to be, the wishes of Eric Holder's boss, Barack Obama.].  This paragraph shows not only the rotten of Eric Holder again but also the rottenness of ABC News Radio.

    By the way, do not forget Barack Obama said around the time of the shooting incident that, if he had a son, he would look like Trayvon Martin, and I say that, if Barack Obama had a son, the son would probably be like Barack Obama, who, for example, is a perpetual liar and has reported that he took mind-altering illegal drugs when younger, and it must be remembered Trayvon Martin had been suspended from school at least twice for bad actions and had used marijuana [which are only some of the things that were bad about Trayvon Martin that have reported publicly since February 2012].

    On July 13, 2013, George Zimmerman was labeled innocent in his court case, and on Thursday, July 18, 2013, the City of Detroit (Michigan) filed for bankruptcy protection in a federal bankruptcy, and the bankruptcy was caused by decades of mismanagement and corruption and thuggery, going back to the days of Coleman Young (who was, for one, a black communist, who promoted racial hatred by blacks against whites), and although the the city did file for bankruptcy and there was a lot of work to do to get--at least--the financial status of the city somewhat right, a few days after the bankruptcy filing had been made, the City Council of Detroit voted unanimously on a resolution to push the federal government to investigate the possibility of creating a federal civil-rights lawsuit against George Zimmerman, and the resolution voted on had been pushed through the City Council by JoAnn Watson (a truly rotten black woman, who has helped sink Detroit) [Guillen, Joe.  "Detroit council supports calls for federal investigation of possible civil rights charges against George Zimmerman." Detroit Free Press, 23 July 2013, 10:05 p.m.].

    [Note: On Tuesday, July 16, 2013, Frank Beckmann, during the third hour, provided listeners of his radio show (The Frank Beckmann Show on WJR-AM, Detroit) with an interview, which would turn into a two-part interview, of Lynn Henning, who is a sports writer for The Detroit News (he has been with The Detroit News since 1979).  The interview, which was supposed to be about baseball, got sidetracked right from the start by Lynn Henning, who jumped into the subject of the George Zimmerman murder trial.  At one point, Lynn Henning said: "...We, we know exactly what happened here.  There was no justice there Saturday.  There was zero justice!...."  Lynn Henning is another rotten person in the main media--a supporter of "enslavism" and persons who support such a form of government and their rotten laws, such as the Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act of 2010.]

    That is only some of the rottenness that showed up after the conclusion of the George Zimmerman trial, and if your favorite newscast did not pass along what I did, you should understand what it is.

         Advertisement: In March 2009, a book called Liberty and Tyranny: A Conservative Manifesto, which had been written by Mark R. Levin, was published.  Through the book, Mark R. Levin talks about how tyranny has been creeping into the country, and he also talks about how the country has been changing from a representative republic, which has a constitution as a basis, to something, yet to be defined, and although Mark R. Levin says that it is the statist who is causing the change, especially those who are a part of the Democratic Party and in government jobs, I say that it is communists, socialists, would-be dictators, and Marxists, such as Barack Obama, who are making the changes, such as by discarding The U.S. Constitution.  I urge you to see and read Liberty and Tyranny: A Conservative Manifesto, and pass it on to others, especially teenagers and young adults (and consider listening to The Mark Levin Show, the nationally syndicated radio show, on a regular basis).

    Oh, let us not forget this one in the history of television broadcasting, which shows the idiocy of local television newscasters in this day and age when all the reporters and anchors only have to look pretty and connect with viewers.  On July 12, 2013, Tori Campbell had these words to say in a newscast on KTVU-TV (Oakland, California, which is in the San Francisco area, which is a highly "liberal" and a communist stronghold of the country)--"...We have new information now also on the plane crash.  KTV was [which should have been said as "has"] just learned the names of the four pilots who were on board the flight.  They are Captain Sum Ting Wong, Wi Tu Lo, Ho Lee Fuk, and Bang Ding Ow.  The NTSB has confirmed these are the names of the pilots on board Flight 214 when it crashed.  We are working to determine exactly what roles each of them played during the landing on Saturday...."  By the way, since I am not living in California, I did not see the original broadcast of this set of words.  I became aware of this set of words on the evening of July 12, 2013, when Michael Savage, who is the host of the nationally syndicated radio program called The Savage Nation, played the set of words in an audio clip.  Some have reported that the woman was "duped" by an NTSB intern  [Boroff, David, and Beth Stebner.  "San Francisco plane crash: TV station duped into giving racist, false names of pilots by NTSB intern."  New York Daily News, 12 July 2013, 5:33 p.m.], and if the woman was duped, it was really the television station that was duped, or, really, the producers and others at television station who were duped, and that is a sign of how defective the television news department of the station is.  And that seems to be the way of the world of local television news in the United States of America today.

   Announcement for the novice again: To get useful television-delivered news or Internet-delivered news, go to Fox News Channel, WorldNetDaily.com, "The Drudge Report," and CNS News (which is on the Internet and which was launched on June 16, 1998), since the entities do not blindly support Barack Obama, as do CNN, MSNBC, NBC-TV, CBS-TV, and ABC-TV (to learn about bad journalism, you might tune in to CNN, MSNBC, NBC-TV, CBS-TV, and ABC-TV from time to time to see how they differ from the Fox News Channel and those mentioned with it in presenting political stories and events, and you should discover CNN, MSNBC, NBC-TV, CBS-TV, and ABC-TV avoid covering things that make Barack Obama look bad or show his true nature, which could harm you).  If you are unclear of my intentions, I say in different words that you should boycott CNN, MSNBC, NBC-TV, CBS-TV, and ABC-TV and hope they lose more ratings and advertising revenues, since they are expendable, and it is time for you to find the guts to be mean and heartless and cancel them--since they are hurting you.

    Here is a "for-the-record section."  Around the week of Monday, July 29, 2013, people were hearing maybe the federal government--the CIA--had something going on on the ground in the Benghazi, Libya, area on September 12, 2012, when Americans were killed and when Barack Obama did nothing.  What was being suggested around that week of July 29, 2013, was gun-running was being done--and whether or not it was I cannot answer yet, but here is something from history that you should remember, and it was from January 23, 2013, at a US. Senate Foreign Relations hearing, and U.S. Senator Rand Paul (a Republican related to Kentucky) was interviewing U.S. Secretary of State Hillary Clinton (a Democrat or really communist), and here is a portion of the talk between the two:
    Hillary Clinton (answering whether or not the U.S. was involved in gun running, such as in relation to moving weapons to Turkey from Libya, on or around September 12, 2012): "To Turkey?  I, I, I will have to take that question for the record.  That's.  Nobody's ever raised that with me.  I, I..."
    Rand Paul: "It's been in news reports that ships have been leaving from Libya and that they may have weapons.  And what I'd like to know is the Annex that was close by were they involved with procuring, buying, selling, obtaining weapons, and were any of these weapons being transferred to other countries, any countries, Turkey included?"
    Hillary Clinton: "Well, Senator, you'll have to direct, direct that question to the agencies that, dah, ran the Annex."
    Rand Paul: "You're saying you do not know?"
    Hillary Clinton: "I do not know."
    That was the portion, and it should be remembered.  It still on this date--the date of publication of this edition of T.H.A.T.--it has to be reported what Barack Obama was doing during the attack on the Americans in Benghazi, Libya, on September 12, 2012.  It seems something big is being covered up by Barack Obama and all his associates.

    Since I have been sort of on vacation, I have not seen much television, and I have no news on any good television programs, which you might look for, but, then again, I have not really been on vacation, since I have been involved in reconditioning some Arvin Outdoor Steel Furniture from the very late 1940s or very early 1950s, two pieces of which are folding chairs, which, through research, I have determined originally cost around $5.00 or $6.00 each.  Oh, I had to use a sewing machine to make seats and backs for two pieces.  You know, it makes me think I should start up a do-yourself-fix-it television program--not featuring a socialist or communist host--called This Week, Swanson Builds....

    Remember: The Prisoner with Patrick McGoohan was a television show that was produced across the pond and shown on CBS-TV in the late 1960s, and I urge you to find The Prisoner on DVD, maybe from a library, and watch it, and you should show it--all the episodes--to teenagers, or buy it as a present for teenagers.

    P.S.: On Tuesday, August 6, 2013, I saw and heard news stories that The Washington Post, which is a left-wing newspaper that wholeheartedly supports of the Demoratic Party (a.k.a. a communistist and socialistic party) and Barack Obama, was being sold to a billionaire named Jeff Bezos, who is the CEO of Amazon and is a big supporter of Barack Obama and the Democratic Party (recently, Barack Obama visited an Amazon facility), so whatever the newspaper will be renamed--it has been reported the newspaper will be renamed--the newspaper will probably still push socialism and communism and Barack Obama.  WDIV-TV, Channel 4, in Detroit, has been a television a station owned by, in essence, The Washington Post since the 1970s, but that station is not being sold to Jeff Bezos, and the station will, it seems, remain in an entity called the Post-Newsweek Stations (of a parent company currently called the Washington Post Company).  That means no change for the better for WDIV-TV or the newspaper--really.  [Note: I guess I should note that on Sunday, August 4, 2013, I saw the article entitled "Red Sox owner to buy Boston Globe from $70M" in the Detroit Free Press (Associated Press.  "Red Sox owner to buy Boston Globe for $70M."  Detroit Free Press, 4 August 2013, p. 3A.), and the story noted that The New York Times Company (the communistic-based and socialistic-based entity, which produces The New York Times) was well an asset to a man named John Henry, who was getting the entity for seven percent of the cost of the entity in the previous sale, which was in 1993 (when the New York Times Company acquired the Boston newspaper, and I do not really see a change for the better for the newspaper, which will probably remain a left-wing rag.]

Stay well!
