The Unstimulated Obama Economy

The Times complains: The grim numbers tell an unavoidable truth: The economy is not growing nearly fast enough to dent unemployment. Unfortunately, no one in Washington is pushing policies to promote stronger growth now.

~ What truly irked me the most was Jose saying Casey’s Imaginary Friends. The State called it Lies. And that’s what Casey did best. Lie. Then he tried to insinuate that Casey was a pathological liar because of Cindy & George. Blame laying. Classic. He calls it ‘fabrications’. It is called L-Y-I-N-G Georgie Boy.

:: Defense spoke of client’s imaginary friends ::

Imaginary friends

Defense attorney José Baez questioned Cindy Anthony about several people he called his client’s “imaginary friends.”

Cindy Anthony remembered Casey Anthony mentioning these people, but she never met them.

Baez listed these people as: Jeff Hopkins, an alleged Nickelodeon employee who worked at Universal Studios; Hopkins’ mother Jules, a cancer survivor, according to Casey Anthon; as well as Juliette Lewis (Juliette Lewis Outcry witness for Casey Anthony.) According to Casey she worked with Juliette. Casey claims she told both Jeff Hopkins and Juliette Lewis that Casey was missing (not found by LE)and her daughter Annabelle.

(~ I must interject & object your honor~)

Jeffrey Dale Hopkins II:

Outcry witness for Casey Anthony, supposedly has a son who was also watched by Zenaida Gonzalez. According to Casey, Jeff connected her with ZFG because ZFG babysat for his son. Jeff has not been publically documented as being question by LE. At the time LE visited the address, they met with his parents who said Jeff did not live there and his cell was out of service.

He also asked if she ever saw the alleged babysitter, Zenaida Fernandez-Gonzalez or her roommate Raquel Ferrell.

Cindy Anthony said her daughter never produced pictures of these people. Casey Anthony also poke of Fernandez-Gonzalez’ mother Gloria and her older sister Samantha.

“She talked to me about Zanny’s life like she was one of her friends,” Cindy Anthony told Baez. “I just found out that they are imaginary.”

At one point, Baez asked Cindy Anthony is she knew that Casey Anthony said Caylee had a half-brother.

~ I have seen more enthralling questioning in Traffic Court then the ridiculous, meandering & nonsensical fragmentation Jose displayed today. He insinuated a mouthful and produced nothing. NADA! Not one speck of evidence in all his innuendo’s. Cindy would correct him & at one point gave him a look of disbelief in his disjointed questioning. Me thinks he has drank way too much CaseyAid. He tried his utmost to trip Cindy up. Harped on his ‘pool drowning theory’. Every question was responded to : “Casey was the only one home.”

I have to say this day was definitely the State’s Day. Shoot, I am not the only one knowing this, the lawyers on TruTV & CNN remarked about WTH is wrong with Baez. He thinks he’s slick, but he probably did not pass the bar the first few times on Criminal Law 101. ~JP

Color Jose Baez:

~ Oh, almost forgot a Jose tidbit:

For eight years after he graduated from law school, however, the board that screens prospective attorneys in Florida would not let him practice law. The Florida Supreme Court agreed with the decision, issuing an order in 2000 that cataloged unpaid bills, extravagant spending and other “financial irresponsibility” up to that time. Justices reserved their strongest condemnation for his failure to stay current on support payments for his only child.

May 312011

(CNN) — In an obscenity-strewn phone conversation from jail just after her arrest, a fuming Casey Anthony lamented that no one was listening to her, denied knowing what had happened to her missing 2-year-old daughter and said authorities weren’t trying hard enough to find the nanny she claimed had kidnapped the child.

Jurors in Anthony’s capital murder trial Tuesday heard a recording of the call, made to her parents’ home on July 16, 2008 — the day after her daughter, Caylee, was reported missing — weeks after she was last seen.

In the call, Anthony speaks to her mother, her brother and her friend Kristina Chester. She was asking her brother to give her the phone number of her then-boyfriend, Tony Lazzaro.

On the call, a tearful Chester tries to get answers out of Anthony regarding Caylee’s whereabouts. The child had last been seen June 16, a month earlier.

“I got arrested on a f—ing whim today,” Anthony tells Chester on the call, “because they’re blaming me for stuff that I would never do, that I didn’t do.”

“They’re twisting stuff,” Anthony says. “They’ve already said they’re going to pin this on me if they don’t find Caylee. They’ve already said that.”


In court, Cindy Anthony describes her journey to finally see Casey and realizing Caylee was missing.

~ The trial today was the difference between day & night. The morning session was all Cindy Anthony. It was heart rending. It got SO bad for Cindy that she doubled over and cried & personally showed what ” Heart Breaking” means. She literally laid her head down & could barely be seen. This first post is the ‘Day’ part…The ‘Night’ AKA Jose Baez will be in the next post. ~JP

Cindy’s ‘Dead Body’ 911 Call Played For Jury

Cindy broke down in tears several times throughout her testimony, her emotion overcoming her with convulsions as she listened back to the 911 call in which she described Casey’s car as smelling of “death.”

The former attorney for the Anthony family, Bradley Conway, says that the emotion seen from Cindy Anthony during today’s proceedings are very much real. Conway also said that Casey’s claims that she was sexually abused by her father and brother will nearly require that she take the stand to defend such allegations.

The only person questioned today in the case against accused child killer Casey Anthony is her mother Cindy Anthony and the sentiments displayed by both women during testimony underline the stark emotional contrast between mother and daughter.

Cindy Anthony broke down in tears and slumped her body, nearly disappearing behind the stand, during playback of the 911 calls. Casey Anthony listened stone-faced and wiped a few tears with a tissue.

* When Court is in Session:



ORANGE COUNTY, Fla. — Casey Anthony is back in an Orange County courtroom for day 17 of her murder trial on Tuesday, and judge said he will allow her brother to be in court.

Casey Anthony entered the courtroom just before 8:30am, wearing a long-sleeved purple shirt and grey pants. She had her hair pulled back in a ponytail. Casey’s parents Cindy and George Anthony were already in the courtroom.

A motion was filed over the weekend by Casey’s brother, Lee Anthony, who is also a witness in the case. His attorney, Mark Lippman, who is also representing George and Cindy Anthony, petitioned the judge on Tuesday to allow Lee Anthony to sit in on the trial and hear testimony from other witnesses. Typically, witnesses aren’t allowed to be in court to hear other testimony.

But since Lee Anthony’s testimony was already in a deposition, the judge said that he could be in court to hear other testimony, just as his parents have been allowed to.

“Based upon the presentation there has been no evidence to indicate or suggest that Mr. Lee’s testimony will be colored. The court will exclude him from the rule of sequestration,” said Judge Belvin Perry.
