« Gun "Buyback" Crimes Possible | Main | The Amnesty Surprise »

Trayvon Martin HAD NO ICE TEA

The lamestream media told you:

Trayon Martin was a helpless young teenager armed with only a bag of Skittles candy and a container of ice tea when he was ruthlessly stalked and murdered by George Zimmerman, a wannabe cop who was really a self-appointed vigilante.

The Uninvited Ombudsman notes however that:

Trayvon Martin HAD NO ICE TEA

-- Should you call 911 after an incident like this?
-- What should you say? Experts disagree, details below
-- New gun safety rules suggested, details follow

Trayvon Martin was carrying no ice tea when he met George Zimmerman.

The news media fabricated the ice tea "fact" to promote a story that is false.

The "ice tea" factoid has led to national unrest and a show trial for which the news media is solely responsible. An ethics investigation should be mandatory. The AP and SPJ have no plans for an ethics investigation for the lies.

The trial ended without a conviction because none was in order. No one in the media has been held responsible yet for the harm they have caused.

Trayvon Martin had a can of:

"Arizona Watermelon Fruit Juice Cocktail." It contains no tea.

Does that matter?
Is this just a small detail?
Why would the "news" media suppress this,
or change this fact?
Is it even true?

I have seen the crime evidence photo. You can too. Anyone can, including the media. Anderson Cooper on CNN displayed the can and called it ice tea. ("Pay no attention to the man behind the curtain!") There is no tea in it. It is Watermelon Juice. And you know why they changed it:

The media won't say "Watermelon" because it fits a black racial profile the media seeks to suppress.


There is racial profiling at work here,
but it's not from the defendant --
it's from the news media.

The media is lying about Watermelon Juice because it fits the racial profile of blacks and watermelon, and they can't stand that. It makes them so crazy they would rather lie, mislead you and violate their Code Of Ethics than report it.

And this is the ugly underbelly of this entire affair. The news media in the United States has become grotesquely racist and it permeates everything the media does. They deny this with every fiber of their being. They pretend it doesn't matter, but they act on it with every word they speak. CNN, NBC, FOX, all of them without exception.

Media bias appears to be grounded in a simple psychological phenomenon -- white guilt.

But even that is secondary, an issue we'll get to in a moment. It colors and effects everything they do, and blinds them to everything they ought to do.

Here's the real question, that they never asked:

Why was Trayvon Martin out on a rainy night buying Watermelon Juice?

The answer comes from his cell phone and social media pages. These were not allowed into evidence at the Zimmerman self-defense trial -- which is proper. I agree with suppressing that evidence, because it was not known to Zimmerman when the incident occurred. It did not belong in the trial.

But it belonged in the news. It was available to the media and suppressed by them, because it would present Trayvon in a true light. Failure to present it inflamed the public, instigated the protests, fueled the race baiters, fed the hate. The racist media made that happen by inventing facts and hiding facts.

Self defense trial, or a murder trial?

The media, as you know, insisted on calling this a murder trial, but to anyone who owns a gun, or understands the law even a little, or understands Zimmerman's claim -- or ever worried about facing a similar circumstance after defending your own fate on a dark and rainy night -- this was and turned out to be: A Self-Defense Trial.

Trayvon Martin was out buying a sweet drink to make "Lean." That's ghetto slang for a potent combination of cough syrup, candy and soft drink. Here's the dialog, as posted at

"Trayvon, in fact, had become a devotee of the druggy concoction known as "Lean," also known in southern hip-hop culture as "Sizzurp" and "Purple Drank." Lean consists of three basic ingredients -- codeine, a soft drink, and candy. If his Facebook postings are to be believed, Trayvon had been using Lean since at least June 2011.

"On June 27, 2011, Trayvon asks a friend online, "unow a connect for codien?" He tells the friend that "robitussin nd soda" could make "some fire ass lean." He says, "I had it before" and that he wants "to make some more." On the night of February 26, if Brandy had some Robitussin at home, Trayvon had just bought the mixings for one "fire ass lean" cocktail."

Trayvon, the clean-cut 11-year-old pictured by the "news" media was actually a six-foot-tall football player who had been suspended from school three times, and when confronted by a school security guard for writing "WTF" on a school locker, was found with 12 pieces of jewelry, a watch and a "burglary tool" in his backpack, according to that published report.

The "news" media has yet to be held up on ethics charges for instigating this whole affair.

In other news, 11 young black men were murdered, presumably by other black men, in predominantly black areas of Chicago, on Independence Day. Those grieving parents have received no coverage, no followup reports, and no attention from major national race baiters like Jess Jackson and Al Sharpton. The latter a commentator on MSNBC, who has been staging well-covered protests in the WatermelonGate affair.


Zimmerman forgot this gun safety rule:

"It's always better to avoid a gun fight than to win one."

Sure, he was a block watch captain. Sure, he had a right, even a duty to be where he was and do what he did. Sure, we have to stand up to potential criminals roaming aimlessly in our neighborhoods on dark rainy nights. But:

Would you like to be in Zimmerman's shoes now for the rest of your life?
If only he had stayed in his car! (The media keeps repeating that.)
If only Trayvon had not broken his nose! (The media has forgotten that part.)

Read that gun safety rule again:

"It's always better to avoid a gun fight than to win one."

That comes from my 13th book, which you need to read:

After You Shoot: Your gun's hot. The perp's not. Now what?

Should you call 911 right after an incident? Experts disagree.
One thing is for sure: If you call 911,
YOUR VOICE will be blasted nationwide for decades. Read the book.

Massad Ayoob, the world-renowned lethal-force expert says YOU MUST call 911. I'm not so sure. His specific advice is in there. The advice of more than 70 experts is in there too. There is no legal requirement to make that call in any state. There is also a great deal of legal risk if you do not make that call. What should you say if you do make the call? This is one of many great legal loopholes in self-defense law in America. Read the book while you still can. Consider some of Massad's advice:

[Note: We have gotten his classic "In The Gravest Extreme" back in print after being unavailable for nearly a year.]

What happened to "You have the right to remain silent?" What happened to "You have the right to have a lawyer present during questioning?"AFTER YOU SHOOT addresses that. It has the controversial Adnarim statement (Miranda backwards) of what you should say to the police about your rights.

If you have a gun and plenty of ammo, you need to read that advice, and think it through for your self. Before an incident.

You need to at least consider all the new gun safety rules from that book:


1. If you ever shoot in self defense you must then defend yourself against execution for murder.

2. When you drop the hammer plan to cash in your life savings for your lawyer's retainer. Avoid this unless your life depends on it.

3. Sometimes the innocent get decent treatment, sometimes they don't.

4. It's always better to avoid a gunfight than to win one.

5. If innocent life doesn't immediately depend on it, don't shoot. And if it does, don't miss.



This trial was about gun control.


Those that want gun control...Hate you because you
will not OBEY...them.......I will never, obey.......imho
