    The state’s attorney’s office just came out and said that because this would have been Smollet’s first offense (aside from lying to the police a few years ago during a DUI stop), he would most likely only be given a sentence of community service, and that he has been good for the community and thus has already performed “community service.”
    (He's an actor don't cha know!)

    We're told Chicago police are "furious" and feel something untoward is going on with Kim Foxx.
    (They weren't notified)

    The union which represents the police in Chicago is calling for State's Attorney Kim Foxx to face investigation from the Attorney General for her handling of the investigation.

    Among their concerns are text messages exchanged between Foxx and Smollett's relatives.

    One, written by Smollett's relative after Foxx told them she was trying to convince the police to hand over the probe, is of particular worry.

    Smollett's relative, who was not identified when the texts became public earlier this month via a records arrest, replied: 'OMG this would be a huge victory' when Foxx said she was 'trying' to get it handed over.

    Their concern is whose interests she was working on when she, after being contacted by former Michelle Obama aide Tina Tchen, tried to steer the probe in the direction that the Smollett family wanted.

    This all started with "White's wearing a MAGA hat attacked me!"

    The fact that the case is sealed tells you all you need to know about this nonsense.

    This is a political decision, not a law decision.

    How about a federal charge of a hate crime like it would have been for a white person pulling this exact same crap. This is not over and someone is going to jail before it is over. It shows how corrupt these people are that use color to advance their position in life and then think they can actually break the laws to protect someone who is as guilty as sin, they have the evidence showing these two brothers purchasing the things used in the crime. Surely someone can over ride this crime by this prosecutor, and it is a crime committed.

    He's not related to the Clintons is he?
    Cast your burden on the Lord,
    and he will sustain you;
    he will never permit
    the righteous to be moved.

    Is there a way for Trump supporters, white Trump supporters, living in Chicago to file a class action lawsuit against him?
    Progressivism is a bottomless pit of absurdity.

    Breaking: All Charges Dropped Against Jussie Smollett (Update: Mayor Emanuel ‘This Is Not On The Level’)

    There has been another twist in the Jussie Smollett case and it’s a big one. According to CBS Chicago reporter Charlie De Mar, all 16 charges against Smollett have been dropped and his record will be expunged:
    ...
    Foxx did try to have the FBI take over the case early on. Does this outcome mean that, in retrospect, she was on to something? Sources close to Smollett tell TMZ that the case against him had “disintegrated.” Specifically, the check which was supposedly written to pay the brothers for the attack was actually written for training in the gym. The Osundairo brothers’ attorney admitted on national television that the check was for training but said the brothers were also asked for a favor.
    This blogpost has lots of updates as relevant events happened. It looks to me like the guys who "attacked" Smollett lied on a significant point, and that made their testimony impeachable had the case gone to court. My suspicious brain wonders whether that was planned.

    War: Rahm Emanuel, Chicago PD Superintendent Demand Answers On Smollett Deal

    Be sure to read John’s earlier post on the Smollett case first, in which he asked what in the hell was going on in Chicago. A couple of guys in Second City would like to know that too. Mayor Rahm Emanuel and police superintendent Eddie Johnson held a press conference to vent their anger over the deal Kim Foxx gave Jussie Smollett. With Smollett now proclaiming his innocence again, Johnson demands an apology … or two:
    (Embedded Tweet)
    Johnson isn’t backing away from the case, either. He angrily insisted that Smollett’s claim was “a hoax, period.” If Smollett felt otherwise, well, Johnson said Smollett could have his day in court:
    (Embedded Tweet)
    Looks like Smollett decided to have his day in the media instead. Rahm Emanuel then took over the microphone, ripping Smollett for having the audacity to use the legacy of Matthew Shephard to promote his own career. Emanuel also tore into the district attorney’s office over the deal, calling it a “whitewash of justice,” emphasizing that the grand jury found plenty of evidence of crimes.
    (Embedded Tweet)
    ...
    Despite all of the fulminating at this press conference, there’s little that can now be done about the situation — at least in Chicago. Now that the charges have been adjudicated in this deal, jeopardy has attached. The city of Chicago can’t recharge Smollett, and it’s doubtful that the state could do so either. That doesn’t mean that Smollett’s off the hook, however. The FBI is still investigating the threat letter received by Empire‘s production studios a week or so before the hoax attack. If they can tie that back to Smollett, he could face federal charges for sending threats and a hoax through the US mail. They haven’t charged anyone yet, however.
    Looks like this was politics. Not generically corrupt Chitown politics, but Victimhood Politics. Smollett's a twofer and got a twofer's no-criminal-record deal.
    Facts don't matter to DUpipo.

    No, but the mayor of Chicago, Rahm "dead fish" Emanuel, is a long time loyal Clintonista. Today he condemned the action of the State's Attorney in the strongest terms.

    This isn't about the Clintons. It's about Obama, Jarrett, The Camel and Sparticus--and 2020.

    The Camel decides to run for President (choke!). This is the same Kamala Harris who illegally trampled all over David Daleiden's 4th amendment rights. But, what else to you expect from a worthless woman who sleeps her way into a political career in Willy Brown's bed?

    The Camel kicks off her campaign. She and Sparticus put together an "anti-lynching" bill (that is really more about forcing transgenderism down our throats than about lynching). Suddenly, out of nowhere, a 3rd rate actor, who is black AND GLBT, is "lynched" in sub-zero temps, when everyone is wearing mittens and ski masks.

    The initial reports buoyed the passage of the "anti lynching" (you will accept men in dresses as oppressed) bill in the house. Had the Chicago PD not found a hundred holes in Jussie's little scheme, it would have been another Trayvon, another Michael Brown (both media creations: both were killed in self defense legitimately). Instead, the security cameras were "not working" (or perhaps Jussie got the wrong angle) and there was no "Rodney King" footage to inflame the media.

    As the thing unravels, Michelle Obama's former chief of staff (Tina Tchen) tries to call in a favor with the FBI, hoping to save the "hate crime" by getting it away from Chicago PD, but is rebuffed. (The fact that she thought she could still call someone at the FBI indicates A LOT MORE HOUSECLEANING for the FBI.)

    Then Tchen goes back to Chicago. Meanwhile, State's Attorney for Cook County is Kim Foxx, a recipient of Soros largesse in her last election. (Remember all the Soros money in DA races. One of them was running here in San Diego, but she was beaten badly, thank God.) Foxx (who is black) recuses herself from the case. Her second in command, ever to be known as the Maggot (Joseph Magats, a white liberal) drops the case.

    This is all tied in with Soros, Obama, the Camel, and certainly Jarrett (if Obama is involved).


    This comment at the Treehouse sums up my thoughts:

    The only reasonable explanation is the Smollett Family sent a message to Whom It May Concern that Jussie would spill the beans if something is not done ASAP. Trial was not an option. The concerned party could not afford a trial. They chose the lesser evil — the public outrage over this travesty of justice and the embarrassment of the cops who are hated anyway. Because the alternative was much, much worse.

    Of course Rahm and Co. had to put on a show of fake outrage but they are not going to do anything about it. Rahm knows what is going on. Smollett knows that Rahm knows, and Rahm knows that Smollett knows that Rahm knows. Kabuki.

    Once again, the case was closed and sealed and Smollett smugly claimed to be a victim because that was the price of his silence.

    Let us see what happens next. Can the decision be reversed?
    Knowing the utterly immoral Left, they will now claim that Chicago PD was wrong and that there WAS a hate crime. Maybe they can get a second third-rate actor to be more successful at his own faked lynching.
