The communist dictatorship ruling mainland China, responsible for the blood of more innocent victims and for more abuses than any other single regime in world history, released a scathing so-called “human rights” report suggesting that America’s Second Amendment protection of the right to keep and bear arms represented a violation of human rights.

Several key witnesses in the shooting death of Trayvon Martin by Neighborhood Watch captain George Zimmerman have changed their original stories since first being interviewed by law enforcement, according to news reports about recently released evidence in the case. Some analysts cited in the media speculated that three of those revised accounts might hurt the shooter’s claims of self-defense as the second-degree murder prosecution goes through the Florida court system.

Federal legislation sponsored by “progressive” Democrat lawmakers, dubbed the “Trayvon Amendment” to play on people’s emotions in the wake of the now-infamous Florida shooting, would aim to bully state governments into restricting self-defense rights by withholding federal taxpayer funds. The controversial attack on individual and state rights was withdrawn from the House floor this week for being “out of order.” But it is not dead yet.
Eric Holder invoked the George Zimmerman case during a speech before the NAACP’s Detroit chapter on Sunday.
House Republicans are inching closer to issuing a contempt citation against disgraced Attorney General Eric Holder for scandals surrounding the Obama administration’s deadly weapons-trafficking operation “Fast and Furious.” But in recent days, the Department of Justice implausibly insisted that it cooperated with the congressional investigation.
