The media should not be influencing court rulings
“We have a real problem in this country. And, no, it’s not racial profiling as you hear in the mainstream media; on the contrary, our problem is the media. It’s a real problem when our justice system can be affected by political pressure and political correctness…Something is wrong in this nation when we have race and politics being used to manipulate the criminal justice system.”
Greta Van Susteren gives her insights on the Zimmerman case
Greta Van Susteren, host of Fox News’ On the Record, expressed her doubts that the DOJ will find that Zimmerman violated Trayvon’s civil rights: “Zimmerman was entitled to the same fair trial everybody is: he got it, the jury decided it. And now people are screaming, and there's political pressure for the Department of Justice to get involved… I just don’t get this one.” She explained that justice has spoken, and that it’s finally time society recognize that this was simply a “terrible, terrible tragedy for both families”, and that, as a society, it’s time we move on.
Congressman Gowdy indicates House may be wavering on immigration reform
Congressman Trey Gowdy (R-SC) says he is not necessarily opposed to killing the immigration bill entirely because there are certain jobs that Americans simply won’t do. He cited the connection between welfare and unemployment insisting that the heart of the problem is “not just what employers are paying, it’s what we, as a culture, are paying people to do nothing. If you can make more money not working, then that becomes a moral issue.” To conclude the interview, Gowdy also responded to Laura’s question of whether he would consider challenging Sen. Graham in the South Carolina primary. “I believe being a good senator requires two things," Gowdy said. "Number one, acumen. Number two, interest. I don't know whether I have the acumen. I know I don't have the interest…If someone wants to audition for a six-year prison sentence in South Carolina, they're welcome to do it," he added.
