Behind the Scenes, It’s Clear Chicago Media
and Police Doubt Jussie Smollett’s Story

Mediaite, by John Ziegler

Original Article

Posted By:Pluperfect, 2/10/2019 4:43:50 AM

I can’t recall a large crime story where there was a bigger gap between what the police and media are saying publicly, and what they expressing behind the scenes, than the saga involving the recent alleged hate crime against actor Jussie Smollett. Similarly, there may not be a story where you can tell more by what has not happened, in comparison to what actually has occurred. The current public stance of the Chicago police is that earlier this month, at 2 a.m. on a very cold Chicago night, Smollett was the victim

From the very get go, we knew absolutely, without the teeniest shadow of the slightest doubt, it was a hoax! It was the most clumsiest fraud of a story I have ever read, like the classic “mouse-in-my-salad” b.s. This story BEGGED to be ridiculed. But, because of his powerful “Political Correctness Force Field” (gay, black, celebrity, liberal), the mindless media fools screamed for justice, while the Chicago P.D. did a thorough rectal exam of every possible hate crime scene, wasting thousands of man-hours looking for the non-existent MAGA hat-wearing registered Republicans responsible for humiliating this poor soul, who was just minding his own business in a black neighborhood at 2 o’ clock in the cold wintry morning. Liberalism is, indeed, a mental disorder.

You can count me in as one of the "early doubters" of the ALLEGED "victim"
BTW I love the "force field" comment. The ALLEGED "victim" thought he had it sewed up and probably figured a spot on Offal Win Free and a new car.

Allow me to point out the obvious.
The lad said he was talking on his cell phone to his music manager when the two assailants jumped him, and he fought them off while continuing his conversation with his cell phone in one hand, his Subway sandwich in the other. And he must have been such a ferocious fighter, the two assailants ran away.
Doesn´t that scenario offered by Jussie, seem highly improbable?

Smollett´s father is Jewish and his mother is black. But, what value is there in anti-semitism or racism anymore? Racist blacks hate Jews, but they are the only ones in full support of little, can´t fight back Jussie (did his parents misspell his name?). Hate crimes against homos is the new thing. Even that´s old for identity politics. He needs to say he´s tranny or something. The Chicago media might go for that.

Most of us have thought so from almost Day One. There was no there there. And jussie had many reasons for doing what he did. He has already demonstrated publicly that he hates President Trump and anyone who supports him. He did a video on this in 2017, which featured him on a couch with a couple of kids while a noose swung in the near background. He is 36 years old, a supporting actor on a black TV program, and most in America do not recognize his name. They do now, but for all the wrong reasons. It has nothing to do with talent.

The Chicago Police are said to have taken resources from investigating the hundreds of murders that have occurred there and diverted them to the Jussie case. Yet they are stuck in a PC spider web. Perhaps they are just waiting for the story to go away? Jussie won’t permit that. Best the CPD tell something resembling the truth rather than leaking it?

At 36, Smollett is hardly a “lad”. He plays a son on “Empire” but he is no lad.

Supreme Court curbs power of government
to impose heavy fines and seize property
Fox News, by Andrew O´Reilly    Original Article
Posted By: Pluperfect- 2/20/2019 2:15:19     Post Reply
In a unanimous decision, the Supreme Court on Wednesday ruled to drastically curb the powers that states and cities have to levy fines and seize property, marking the first time the court has applied the Constitution’s ban on excessive fines at the state level. Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg, who returned to the court for the first time in almost two months after undergoing surgery for lung cancer, wrote the majority opinion in the case involving an Indiana man who had his Land Rover seized after he was arrested for selling $385 of heroin. “Protection against excessive fines has been a constant shield

Who would have thought that, this deep into the Russia collusion probe, we´d be learning about yet another dossier connected to Hillary Clinton? And, as it turns out, it was sort of a family secret. By his own account, senior Department of Justice (DOJ) official Bruce Ohr played an essential — and unorthodox — role, carrying politically tainted allegations of Donald Trump-Russia collusion to the FBI during the 2016 election. First, it was unverified intelligence starting in July 2016 from Trump-hating former British spy Christopher Steele, the author of the infamous Russia dossier.

Hate-crime hoaxers beware, the law does not

If the latest apparent hate-crime hoax of the the Trump era is what it looks like, it isn´t merely a story of a desperate actor doing something insane. It´s a story of today´s progressive identity politics and how it elevates group victimhood to the highest of virtues. (Snip)At the heart of both deceptions is a postmodern belief system whose central tenet is that one’s racial and social identity supersede truth and reality. According to this intersectional system of thinking, the distinction between not only good and evil but also between fact and fiction is determined not based

Forty years after his death, John Wayne’s views on race and homosexuality have suddenly sparked a firestorm of tweets from users who believe his comments are somehow representative of America as a whole in the Trump era. After a viral tweet began to circulate over the weekend, highlighting portions of a famous 1971 Playboy interview, the phrase “John Wayne” was trending on the platform by Tuesday evening as users found their feeds flooded with both outrage and confusion at the new-found relevancy of the interview.

With the new year still very much ahead of us, it´s far too early to say what will turn out to be the most annoying trend of 2019 — the decluttering mania and the Alliance of American Football both look very promising so far — but I have my own early candidate — in the literal sense of someone not named Donald J.

A federal judge ruled Tuesday that a lawsuit filed by an advocacy group hoping to halt construction of former President Barack Obama´s $500 million presidential center on Chicago´s South Side can proceed. U.S. District Judge John Robert Blakey, who was nominated to the federal bench by Obama in 2014, ruled that Protect Our Parks has standing to sue the city because it represents taxpayers with concerns that providing land in Jackson Park to the Obama center violates their due process rights. The judge indicated that he doesn´t want the litigation to drag on,

Like Comey and Brennan, McCabe
finds impetus of Trump probe ´inarticulable´
Fox News, by Dan Bongino    Original Article
Posted By: Pluperfect- 2/20/2019 4:29:14     Post Reply
Did you notice how, during the Andrew McCabe interview with "60 Minutes," the former FBI acting director kept talking about “articulable facts?” Like ex-CIA boss John Brennan and disgraced former FBI Director James Comey, McCabe was coining his own phrase to explain why the intelligence community started spying the Trump team. But the justification for mounting a probe should not lie in weasel words. It belongs in something known in law enforcement circles as “Paragraph One.” Paragraph One in federal investigations lays out precisely why the investigation began and how. You can’t skip over it with fanciful phrases or empty verbiage.

Last week, there was the pitiful scene of Gov. Andrew Cuomo of New York begging President Trump to restore a tax provision which unfairly benefitted New Yorkers. It seems that many high-income New Yorkers have been moving their tax homes to Florida, undermining the New York tax base. Those who live in New York City may be paying state and local income tax rates, in addition to the federal tax, of over 12 percent, giving some an overall tax burden of approximately 50 percent. Florida imposes no state and local income taxes in addition to the federal income tax —

Andrew McCabe’s book is titled The Threat: How the FBI Protects America in the Age of Terror and Trump, as if to say Trump is part of the terror. The real upshot of the book is that the politicized ranks of the FBI under James Comey and McCabe were too afflicted with Trump Derangement Syndrome to protect America from real threats. Those ranks took their eyes off real threats and concocted a phony one about Trump and Russia, behaving like members of a cult who turned to retaliation after their dear leader fell in a wholly justified firing.

Hoda Muthana, a 24-year old American woman who left the US to join ISIS 5 years ago, is really sorry and wants to come home. We shouldn’t let her. It should be obvious that when someone takes up arms against their country that they have committed treason and should never be allowed to return. Yet our friends across the pond are proving obvious it isn’t. Britain is having a raging debate about whether they should allow back their own homegrown terrorist, Shamima Begum, who ran away to join ISIS four years ago.

The U.S. Transportation Department announced Tuesday it would attempt to cancel $929 million in federal grant funds for California’s troubled high-speed rail project. The move marks an escalation in the war between President Trump and California in the days since Gov. Gavin Newsom announced a rethinking of the bullet train project after years of cost overruns. The Transportation Department also announced it was “actively exploring every legal option to seek the return from California of $2.5 billion in federal funds.” It’s unclear whether it has the legal authority to do so, and California would probably oppose such a move.In a

Failed Democrat presidential nominee Hillary Clinton warned of “real national emergencies” that included “Americans dying for lack of health care,” despite Obamacare remaining in place. Clinton posted a message Monday appearing to take aim at President Donald Trump’s declaration of a national emergency at the U.S. southern border. She offered four alternative “real national emergencies.” The real national emergencies: – Relentless gun violence. – Children separated from their families at the border. – Climate change. – Americans dying for lack of health care. Clinton identified “real national emergencies” as: – Relentless gun violence

A lot of Americans are justifiably angry that disgraced FBI official Andrew McCabe is doing a book tour rather than a stretch in some federal penitentiary. He has committed perjury on multiple occasions, participated in an attempt to alter the outcome of a national election, and colluded with other rogue bureaucrats to remove a duly elected president from power. But there is a bright and shiny silver lining to this dingy cloud of deep state skullduggery: Donald Trump still resides in the White House while Hillary Clinton stumbles around her Chappaqua mansion in a muumuu hugging a fifth of Glenfiddich.
