George ZimmermanThe surveillance video that was recently released by the Sanford Police Department showing Zimmerman in handcuffs without visible blood on his shirt, face, nose or head has caused most objective observers of this controversy to begin to doubt Zimmerman.

Current photos isn't the story

Ironically there is and continues to be an outcry for recent photos of Trayvon Martin, the teen fatally shot in Sanford, Florida after a neighborhood watch volunteer encountered him on his way home in a gated community. Since the shooting there has been a slow but mounting effort to bring this shooting into the public eye, because Zimmerman was never arrested for the incident. The news media and the like, has been discussing the shooting on a national scale and just like any other story that, photos of the subject have been portrayed.  Many think that it is unfair to show photos of Trayvon that are not recent, but rather are a couple years old.

The Apostles of Paul: He’s the Only One

Obama in Kenya with his grandmother

This article is written with the purpose to put an end to the controversy surrounding the birthplace of President Barack Obama, and to render the so-called “Birthers” moot.  Moot, not because he is already President but rather because his birthplace is of no concern as far as the Constitution and laws of this Nation would have it. Upon reading the complete article an honest assessment of the facts would render President Obama a natural born citizen and entitle him to the full participation in the political process. Yet as sure as the sun will rise in the morning there will be doubters – after all Jesus Christ did not convince all he was the Son of Man.
