Update #12 Trayvon Martin Shooting – You will Never Meet DeeDee But You Can Confront The Media…

<— Continued from Update #11

On Monday March 5th a specific and intentional strategy to manufacture “media evidence” was created by Benjamin Crump, Natalie Jackson and Publicist Ryan Julison.   They began a systematic campaign of optical control.

First, by seeding a narrative to outline their victim “Trayvon Martin”.  The goal in this phase was to portray a personality, to construct a public image of Trayvon Martin.  The construct need not be real, indeed the outcome was far from the truth, it just needed to be the most marketable for the purpose of “brand imagery”.

They even went so far as to Trademark the Brand they were creating.  Control was the key element, as they set about their sales pitches and storyline.   Everything after that March 5th date was an outcome of their original construct.   Natalie Jackson and Benjamin Crump picked Ryan Julison , from Julison Communications, to create the Trayvon “brand” and the Trayvon media “image“.

According to Julison’s Website:

Who They Are ….we have developed communications strategies for a wide-range of crisis situations and worked closely with scores of attorneys to navigate the communication process with media.

[…]  We know how to get your story in the hands of top-tier media, immediately.

What They Do ….And we will work closely with your clients to provide them with both an understanding of the process and thorough media training, so they’ll be prepared to effectively tell their story.    In short, there is no learning curve at Julison Communications.  We’ve directed communications for attorneys and their clients in all manner of legal proceedings.    In short, if it’s a story worth telling, we can help develop a communications strategy and get it in the hands of appropriate local and national media, immediately.

… At Julison Communications, we make it our business to help you navigate the complexity of a crisis and manage your communications efforts.  We are experienced and have handled a wide-range of high-profile crises on the national stage, including those involving complicated legal and financial issues.   Communication in crisis requires a strategic partnership between public relations professional, management and legal counsel.  Often, PR pros and attorneys are at odds over what and how much to say, if anything.   But experience has proven that disseminating information strategically and carefully to the media and your key audiences during a crisis or legal proceeding can be essential…

[…] If practice makes perfect, then we should be pretty darn close…

By March 18th the “brand image” was seared into the people’s psyche with the exceptional selling by the media to a public consumer who still cling to the Fourth Estate as having some semblance of honesty.   They were counting on the average person who still think the halls of legacy penthouse media suites contain revered busts of Roger Mudd, Edward R Murrow, or even Walter Cronkite.  In short, the unawakened majority.

Everything, and I do mean everything, that stemmed from after March 5th was, and is, a completely manufactured series of Media Evidence.

Media evidence, or storylines planted in the media do not need to be real, they only need the appearance of reality.   The talking heads, and those dependent on the public interest in manufactured news know just how to play the narrative to the popular culture at the top of the food chain.   Enter Spike Lee, Oprah Winfrey, Bill Cosby and even President Barack Obama.

Andrew Breitbart famously said that “politics is downstream from popular culture”, he also knew the institutional media in all its forms was the root of all systemic falsehoods that perpetrated a series of self-serving lies upon a generally accepting and non confrontational news consumer.

Talking to a 15-year-old girl caught up inside the enigma created by Benjamin Crump, was not too difficult a challenge.   Especially when you’ve got an experienced Al Sharpton to guide you through the construct.   Indeed it is all too easy to pressure someone, especially a naive and impressionable someone,  with conversations of a greater good, even if constructed by lies, if it provides “justice”.  And Ben Crump is exceptional at leveraging his own definitions of justice upon those who are vulnerable to his manipulations.  He is guided by the master hands of Rev. Al Sharpton, and Jesse Jackson, who have decades of experience leveraging the ‘created false’ into appearances of the ‘public real’.

You will never meet DeeDee, nor will you ever see her at trial, in a court, or possibly ever at an open-ended press conference.  Her purpose was served, the narrative was spun then purchased and sold.   Her end complete, she just now needs to stay quiet and hidden from view.   The narrative that is DeeDee is a constructed figment of a manipulative agenda and will long be forgotten.  You won’t see Team Skittles bringing it up again.

Someone said to me earlier in this story, don’t the actions of  Al Sharpton, Jesse Jackson, and Ben Crump make you angry?   My answer shocked them, for I immediately replied “no, not at all”.   You see, for me it is generally an expectation.  And nothing, nothing, will ever change their roadmap because it works so well.   So I told my friend you just need to accept it, and understand it.   Once you stop being angered by it you can begin to make a difference.

The real anger should be directed at the Fourth Estate, the media.   That is where the constructs are sold, and decisions to sell the lies are advanced.   You can never tell an opportunist who has been so successful in life to stop their behavior, but you can confront the persons who knowingly and willingly will rise in advocacy of the liars.

Recently the media was outraged and aghast when selling the horrible “Rush Limbaugh” for calling a Part-Time opportunistic community organizer and Full-Time tool, a “slut”.   Oh my, what an outrage.   Dust off the powerful media ridicule cannons to blast Limbaugh quick and showcase the indignation.

Yet, Reverend Al Sharpton of “Punk Faggot” fame is held up as the newest bastion of progressivism leaning forward on NBC’s cable network MSNBC.

Apparently those ridicule cannons are often constructed with some of the most hypocritical elements known to man.

When Trayvon Martin was shot, Skittles, Tea and Hoodies, entered the daily narratives of the same Cannon Shooters.   And when Geraldo Rivera had the audacity to stand up and say “those kids wearing hoodies are setting themselves up for trouble”, the marketers quickly directed the sights on Geraldo.   How dare he.

Yet, the same people didn’t seem too concerned when Mayor Nutter said the following just a few months earlier:

So what’s the agenda? Why the disparity?

The media is quite simply the enemy.   Everything sold to the public after March 5th was constructed, manipulated, and intentionally sold as truth.   It was the media who broadcast it around the world and assisted in drumming up the public sentiment toward racist foaming rage under the auspices of “good storylines”.

The media knows they can get away with construction of anything because they have never been held accountable for their intentional manipulations.   Heck, it was not too long ago that Dan Rather was forced to resign from CBS over created manipulations.

In the Trayvon Martin story ABC apologized for constructing video evidence, NBC apologized for constructing evidence of racism, and the Associated Press even apologized for using pictures that did not accurately present the real imagery of Trayvon Martin and George Zimmerman.

The New York Times creates an entire new ethnicity “White Hispanic”, and meanwhile Matt Gutman of ABC continues to engage in news reporting from inside the team led by Benjamin Crump that is constructing the false premise, just go get “exclusives”.  He doesn’t care that those exclusives are lies.

Richard Jewell was accused in the media of being the Atlanta Park Bomber, and after a decade of litigation several News Organizations paid millions to his lawyers in defamation suits.  Yet Jewell died the same year, at the age of 44 a broken man.

There is no accountability upon the Fourth Estate.   They make up their arbitrary rules as they go along, pick sides, create stories and even inject themselves into the narrative.

Even when they are caught red-handed, they are never held to account by the general public.   And if they sense, as they do now, their flawed narrative is about to be exposed, they just walk away quietly.

Never to be held to account for what they have created.

    This all works to destroy civil liberties, on all sides. These people are pitting American against American in order to gain power for the communists. Everything about the media, the federal government and the courts bears this out, it is a systematic destruction of our nation. What was once wrong is now right, what was once right is wrong, when aberrant behavior is touted as “normal” and, and Christianity is bad. People from former communist nations can see this, they were there, yet most Americans can’t, most curious.

        I’ve read time and time again since last night – after the Reuters GZ bio – where people are realizing that the media was white (whoops – multicultural, I mean) washing St Skittles and demonizing GZ. They seemed quite chagrined that the sack was pulled over their eyes so easily.

        Since the beginning, St Skittle’s parents’ behavior has been very suspect. They couldn’t look the camera ‘in the eye’ and nothing seemed to satisfy them. I think I reached point of TTBSS (Total Travon Bull**** Saturation) was when they refused to meet with GZ because ‘it wasn’t the appropriate time’. Mayhap they were thinking that once they had gotten their ‘payoff’ THEN GZ could apologize while they laughed all the way to the bank.

          I figured that the apology was one of those situations where no matter what he did they would find fault with it. If he had not apologized to them in court then the headline would have been that he showed no remorse as he faced the family and they would have been crying that he didn’t apologize to them when that was one of the only things they wanted from him. They will take anything said or done and twist it to extend their story.

        Actually I think when someone is charged in this case by a special prosecutor (Corey) all evidence both pro & con needs to b used to determine charge. If she had used the 911 call, eyewitnesses and evidence found at the scene there is no way she could ethically charge GZ with 2nd degree. O’Mara picked the prosecution case apart & embarressed Corey at last weeks bail hearing and got GZ out on the low $150k bail because of the over reach in 2nd D charge and all the esculpatory
        evidence.
        I wouldn’t be surprised if the entire case is kicked because of the charge.

    Patty Mahany, who thankfully isn’t going to take it anymore, said on Fox yesterday that it wasn’t even two weeks after the incident, that some were already claiming that the Sanford police had not done their job, and that Chief Lee was being called incompetent, all because GZ was not arrested on the spot. She said that the investigation was active and on going, and that they had gone to Prosecutor Wolfinger with what they had at the time, and he said that they could not arrest GZ at that time, as they didn’t have evidence to disprove his claims of self defense. She said that no one ever said at that time that GZ would never be arrested. She cited the SYG statute and said that they could not arrest him, and repeated could not because they didn’t have the evidence that would be required for an arrest. She said that anyone who knows anything about police investigations knows that it takes 6-8 weeks to complete an investigation. I know that most report that it takes 6-8 weeks for taxicology tests to be completed and returned. The tox tests on TM I would think are crucial to the investigation.

    Meghan Kelly asked her about the SP Corey being appointed, as that happened in less than the time period required for the investigation to be completed. Mahany said that the SP actually relied on all of the investigation that had already been done by the police and detectives who worked on the case from the start. Mahany seemed to not want to go there with the Gov. and Corey, but again reiterated that it is the very people who were called incompetent, and were accused of botching the investigation, whose very reports, information gathered, and documents are the basis for the SP case. Gilbreath backed that up in the bail bond hearing saying that they had relied, at least in large part, on the information gathered by the original investigators and police, including the work done by Police Chief Lee.

    The solution to the problem is right there in front of you. Free market capitalism. You see, the Founders believed that a free press would keep the government honest. But all that changed, especially in the 1930’s, when FDR would barr journalists who did not write his agenda the way he thought they should.

    I worked for a major national business publication for years. The powers that be knew that advertising was the meat of the publication. It paid the bills. But subscribtions were the gravy, the actual profit, and the two went hand in hand. The greater the readership, the more desirous was advertising space and the greater amount you could charge for advertising. If readership declined, advertising space was no longer worth as much.

    So there you have your answer. Do not subscribe to publications that present falsehoods, or promote the Democrat agenda. Do not visit their websites. When readership declines, the New York Times is more than able to tell you what happens. The Grey Lady is in dire straites, borrowing millions from Mexican billionaire, Carlos Slim, to keep the doors open while they try to figure out how to decrease those tony retirement packages they promised over the years. No media outlet wants to go under, and when they realize their policies are not working, and they are facing extinction, they will change their tactics just to stay alive. Perhaps it is time the Grey Lady dumps the Fabian Socialist that heads that publication and they get someone who is dedicated to truth telling before they become history.

      It’s my understanding that the prosecutors need to give to O’Mara all evidence they’ll be using at that hearing to back up their claim that GZ isn’t worthy of SYG immunity. Normally I would think that O’Mara would need plenty of time to comb over all of the evidence, but I think the prosecution’s case is so incredibly weak there’s probably not much evidence for the prosecutors to hand over! O’Mara can probably review it in 2 days. Defense already has their witnesses, I believe, and the injury photo, and the medical reports. Seems like that’s all they’d need.

Just as consistent with Trayvon starting the fight. He may well have taken the earpiece out and hung up and pocketed his phone preparatory to sucker punching GZ.

    Another excellent post, sundancecracker! I totally agree. Crump and the rest of Team Skittles were expected to behave badly, nothing unusual there. I give a pass to the Martins because they were grieving and they were duped by Team Skittles, their response was therefore expected. Poor Daisha, only 15 and the only witness to the brief conversation between TM and GZ prior to the shooting, just stated what she heard, and she too was duped by Team Skittles. I even forgive the legions of citizens who believed that the incredible story Team Skittles created was true.

    But the media cannot be forgiven. Their sloppy greedy hasty biased sensationalist “reporting” was deplorable. Why, almost 2 months since the shooting, is factual information about GZ finally being published? And now of course because it’s the hot story, the rest of the media have latched on to it. It’s the #1 news story showing up when I log on to my Yahoo email account.

    In the Bond hearing last Friday, De La Riondo said that GZ was not to contact any of the witnesses. O’Mara came right back with the fact that they didn’t have any of the names of the witnesses. So, as of last Friday, the prosecution still had not handed over at least some of the discivery that they “must” hand over to the defense.

    On a legal website that I read, one of the first pieces of prosecution evidence that must be given to the defense is all “pictures” and all forensic evidence, autopsy report and toxicology report. The second item on the list was all withness information that the prosecution will be using in the case, and is to include the names and addresses of those witnesses. Gilbreath referred under oath that they had witnesses, and mentioned the person who saw shadows run past her window. When Gilbreath crossed Gilbreath I believe he brought up something about a witness that was on the phone during the incident. Of course there were at least a few people who were on the phone calling 911 to report the scuffle, but he seemed to be referring to DeeDee. De La Riondo asked of Gilbreath if they interviewed that witness, and Gilbreath said yes. Yet Crumb said that DeeDee’s mother wouldn’t allow her to talk to anyone but him. If they were in fact referring to DeeDee, who seems to be their star witness, I would think there would have to be some kind of transcript of that interview that would have to be produced.

    “In court, you have the jury,” Crump says. “Our job is to get the case to a jury. We need to fight first in the court of public opinion. The jury is the American people.”

    Someone Must Be Punished for Killing Trayvon Martin, Says Mom Sybrina Fulton
    by Allison Samuels Mar 22, 2012 2:04 AM EDT

    The now controversial killing of Trayvon garnered virtually no mainstream media attention in the days immediately after he was fatally shot, but that all changed when the teenager’s parents decided to hire civil rights attorney Benjamin Crump and his law firm to get more answers on exactly how and why their son died.

    “They called me the same day they were notified that their son was dead,’’ Crump told The Daily Beast. “When I heard their unarmed teenage son was shot to death, I just knew there’d be an arrest shortly. There wasn’t an arrest 48 hours later, and then I knew we’d have to take this outside of Sanford if we wanted justice.’’

    -snip-

    “I had to call people like Sharpton and a few other black civil rights leaders and the black media to tell them about this story,’’ said Crump. “I had to get them to understand what happened to this young man and what hadn’t happened in his case so they could spread the word.’’

    Historically, cases of murder and violence against blacks in the United States rarely have been given the same amount of attention as cases in which the victims of crime are white—and often go unnoticed and unprosecuted.

    Just days after hearing the details of Trayvon’s death, Sharpton arranged to have Crump and the teenager’s parents, Sybrina Fulton and Tracy Martin, on his syndicated radio show and his popular MSNBC show, Politics Nation, to tell their story.

    -snip-

    In the wake of non-stop media attention from the likes of Sharpton and CNN’s Don Lemon concerning the Trayvon Martin case, black media blogs such as MediaTakeOut.com and Huffington Post Black Voices also began publishing accounts and editorials about the Florida case—daily. Almost instantly, readers of all races, ages, and backgrounds began tweeting and posting on Facebook their outrage over how the police have handled the case, and the lack of an arrest in the shooting. To date, almost 1 million people have signed a Change.Org petition to have Zimmerman arrested. In response to the widespread outrage, the Justice Department has opened an investigation into the shooting.

    Meghan Kelley just did a segment on the Reuters investigation and report of who GZ really is. She said that this report can well change the public perception of who GZ is. Trace Gallagher then went through many of the things that were in the report. He brought up that GZ was asked to join the Neighborhood Watch program, and became the Captain. He talked abot the animal control officer advising him to get a gun because of the pit bull attacks. He talked about all the burglaries that were happening in the complex, and they played some of the past tapes where GZ was recorded on 911 calls giving info to the police about suspecious black males. He talked about the lady who hid upstairs as she was being robbed.

    Yeeeeees! The media, or at least Meghan Kelley, is finally doing some honest reporting. The tide is truly turning.

    Victim’s sister: Mobile, Ala. black-on-white beating sparked by theft, not basketball

    The sister of a white Mobile, Alabama man who suffered severe head trauma during a beating by approximately 20 black neighbors on Saturday spoke exclusively to The Daily Caller, saying that the incident started after one of her children witnessed some of the eventual assailants stealing an item from a neighbor’s porch — not, as some media outlets have reported, following a disagreement about a pick-up basketball game in the street.

    Not one documented fact has been offered that contradicts Zimmerman’s account of what happened that night.

    Given the absents of such facts, there was [no probable cause] to arrest
    Zimmerman. Therefore, Zimmerman’s arrest was [illegal].

    The prosecutor’s probable cause affidavit consisted of only conjectures and legal irrelevancies. Needless to say, a legitimate probable cause affidavit can’t be based on conjectures and [alleged facts] that have zero legal significance.

    The probable cause affidavit offered against Zimmerman is [entirely] based on conjectures and legal irrelevancies.

    The outstanding legal irrelevancy offered by Angela Corey is her [assertion] that Zimmerman disobeyed the police dispatcher’s instruction not to follow Trayvon. Even if this [conjecture] were true, Zimmerman would still have retained the legal right of self-defense.

    Incidentally, Angela Corey knows that.

    The simple fact is, persons have the legal right to follow other persons. Not only that, they have the legal right to approach persons and question them, though the approached person is under no legal obligation to answer their questions or remain in their physical presence.

    As I said, the prosecutor’s probable cause affidavit consisted of nothing but conjectures and legal irrelevancies. In other words, the affidavit did not demonstrate the probable cause that would justify Zimmerman being indicted for second degree murder.

    At the next pretrial hearing, should the presiding judge grant Zimmerman immunity from prosecution because there was objectively [no probable cause] justifying his arrest, he will be in position to sue Angela Corey for legal malfeasance.

    Most amazing was Angela Corey’s lead investigator testifying at Zimmerman’s bond hearing that the prosecution had [no evidence] which contradicts Zimmerman’s account of what happened!

    Yes, he actually said that.

    But in spite of having [no evidence] to contradict Zimmerman’s account, Angela Corey, [nevertheless] asserted the existence of probable cause justifying Zimmerman’s indictment for second degree murder.

    Not only should Angela Corey be sued by Zimmerman, she should have her law license revoked for abuse of office.

      I believe it was at Corey’s presser, where she announced second degree murder charges, she also said that “of course the defense can come up mid-way with an affirmative defense, such as an alibi, but we plan to do everything we can to prevent that from happening.”

      In other words, Corey is saying that even if Mark O’Mara has proof that GZ acted in self-defense, the prosecutor’s will do all they can to prevent him from presenting it, or from GZ winning in an Immunity hearing based on that evidence.

      If that doesn’t scream malicious prosecution, and willfully denying any defendant a right to equal justice under the law, I don’t know what does.

      Just as Barack Obama has torn to shreds, our Constitution, and stamped on it, so to has Angela Corey torn to shreds our laws providing equal justice under the law, and trampled on those laws, which are to be awarded to every US citizen. Angela Corey has taken innocent until proven guilty, and turned it into guilty until proven innocent.

      No he didn’t go that far and O’Mara didn’t ask that question. Instead O’Mara asked the investigator whether he had any evidence which establishes who started the fight. He said no to that.

    But experience has proven that disseminating information strategically and carefully to the media and your key audiences during a crisis or legal proceeding can be essential…

    Am I wrong to think that justice, true justice, has nothing to do with PR? Why the hell do we allow attorneys and clients or anyone else pertinent to a case to speak directly to the media? Maybe this should be prohibited.

    And then we have the shameful media who probably received the PR releases and cut & paste them into the newsreader’s scripts. Did Julison provide the video too? (Where’s your badger picture, that’s how I’m feeling right now.)

    I just read a story about Zimmerman and for once it didn’t portray him as a gun toting racist vigilante. It spoke about the reason he had a gun and when into the crimes the neighborhood had. One story jumped out at me .

    On February 6, the home of another Twin Lakes resident, Tatiana Demeacis, was burglarized. Two roofers working directly across the street said they saw two African-American men lingering in the yard at the time of the break-in. A new laptop and some gold jewelry were stolen. One of the roofers called police the next day after spotting one of the suspects among a group of male teenagers, three black and one white, on bicycles.

    Police found Demeacis’s laptop in the backpack of 18-year-old Emmanuel Burgess, police reports show, and charged him with dealing in stolen property. Burgess was the same man Zimmerman had spotted on February 2.

    We have already seen where TM father Tracy says TM had been there for the week and had been there before. I know the jewelry incident with TM happen in Oct but I got a stinkin suspicion he was involved in this too. Wonder if they can locate these roofers and show them a pic of TM and see if they have ever seen him.

    On February 2, 2012, Zimmerman placed a call to Sanford police after spotting a young black man he recognized peering into the windows of a neighbor’s empty home, according to several friends and neighbors.
    “I don’t know what he’s doing. I don’t want to approach him, personally,” Zimmerman said in the call, which was recorded. The dispatcher advised him that a patrol car was on the way. By the time police arrived, according to the dispatch report, the suspect had fled.

    That explains why Zimmerman did what he did on 2/26. If that was me I would have done the same thing cops don’t show up in time and they get away only to return a few days later. Zimmerman had also had stuff stolen right off his porch that takes balls. His neighbor had a home invasion in daylight and she had to lock her self in the bathroom with her baby. Sorry but somebody was gonna get shot eventually those residents were living in fear.

    Transient renters began to occupy some of the 263 town houses in the complex. Vandalism and occasional drug activity were reported, and home values plunged. One resident who bought his home in 2006 for $250,000 said it was worth $80,000 today.

    unfortunately I happen to live in this type of community the one I live in is much bigger but same thing. When I bought my house in 06 I payed over $100,000 today it’s worth 50k. This community has drive by meth labs prostitution gangs break in murder everything. The residents here are all on edge and I can easily see what happen in Florida happen here. Just 2 weeks ago a black male smoked some of that K2 and flipped out stripped off his clothes kicked open someones door and raped a 15 year old girl. I wish my neighborhood had a George Zimmerman in it.

      Jay– There is something very wrong with the story about finding 12 pieces of gold and diamond jewelry in TM’s back pack, and him getting away with not naming the friend that he claimed gave it to him. So no one found any reports of those pieces being stolen. So what. It could have been stolen from out of the area. Why ever would the school detective not pursue the find, which was described as including a large screw driver, which is often used to break into houses. There is something very wrong with that whole story, and the fact that he was never pressed to tell the police who the friend was that gave him that jewelry. Or, is there more to the story? Crump sealed all of his records.

I don’t believe for one second he didn’t make friends with someone especially since Chad lived there and could have introduced him to a number of people. Or was the other kid that was spotted by that roofer Chad something stinks.
