September 16, Joel Gilbert previewed his new documentary and book of the same name, “The Trayvon Hoax: Unmasking the Witness Fraud that Divided America,” at the National Press Club in Washington DC.
Gilbert exposed massive amounts of legal and media fraud surround the case of the 2012 death of Trayvon Martin, a young man from Florida who was shot to death while in a dispute with George Zimmerman, a Florida resident.
The movie shows that from the lawyers to the parents, to the media and the witnesses, the death of Martin was exploited and is still being exploited every day.
Gilbert used cell phone data that lawyers had themselves for a year before the trial, to unravel a complex mystery of a very public and highly unjust media and political frenzy.
The case highlights the very bizarre testimony by the “girlfriend”, Rachel Jeantel who admitted that she didn’t really know anything about the case, on the stand. But the show must go on, and the people who knew she was lying, continued with the help of the media who refused to investigate.
Gilbert, through fascinating research, uncovers a shocking relationship to the real girlfriend and exposes why she did not speak out.
In this footage, the movie posits that parents of Trayvon Martin can clearly be seen lying about George Zimmerman and their son to stir emotion and divide the country and get a wrongful death settlement. This, many say, was the beginning of what many say was a race crime hoax.
Many say this led to numerous riots, was the cause of police deaths and hashtag movements like #HandsUpDontShoot and #BlackLivesMatter all meant to cause racism, instill fear and cause division in the country.
And also to sway voters to support Barack Obama in the 2012 Presidential Election.
“Remember at the time Obama was not doing well in the Black community. There was 50% unemployment and people were mad. Crump was the one who expanded the case to Al Sharpton then Sharpton took it to Obama,” Gilbert told National File.
Media reports indicated numerous celebrities and race crime veterans were already involved with the Martin family within days of Crump, including Al Sharpton. Crump used the cell phone data to attributing a false testimony to a fake girlfriend, that many observed simply did not add up.
The movie proves, once and for all, that the woman who testified as Martin’s girlfriend, Jeantel, was, in fact an imposter, and Jeantel’s testimony about what happened the night Martin was killed, took Zimmerman from the victim in a self-defense case to killer in a murder case.
“Zimmerman is Hispanic and was a civil rights activist, he had worked with numerous charitable groups and he was a supporter of Obama’s”, Gilbert told National File. “They had to make him something new so they could throw him under the bus.”
According to Gilbert’s movie, Fulton the mother testified about a handwritten letter that she knew did not come from the woman she claimed it came from, but she carried out the purported hoax for financial gain and political leverage.
“She could have stopped it all, and chose not to,” Gilbert said.
So, the mother who perpetuated a alleged race crime hoax, who had kicked her own troubled child out of her house and into the streets, is running for office in 2020, and is getting support from all of her favorite Democrats.
A Mother of the Movement to prevent gun violence, @SybrinaFulton has already helped turn tragedy into action. Now she’s running for office as a Miami-Dade County Commissioner, District 1. If you can, contribute to help her win and make the change we need: https://t.co/TExSHxDFjL

Gilbert said at the end of the film, “I got to know him from reading his cell phone data for 8 months before his death and investigating his life and friends. Trayvon would not have wanted people to die for a hoax in his name.”
