The Obama Legacy and The Privilege of Jessie Smollett…”It’s Not WHAT You Know…”

Jussie Smollett says he’s going to “fight for equality.”  Isn’t it now clear that some people are more equal than others?  So here he is continuing to portray himself as a victim.  You see, folks, this stuff doesn’t end.  You think that you win something real big like the Mueller report coming out, and then in only a few short hours or days later that you are — and we are — reminded that there aren’t any lasting victories, that it is an ongoing battle. – Rush Limbaugh, 3/26/2019

FoxNews.com reports that

Tina Tchen, the attorney and former chief of staff to first lady Michelle Obama, has garnered scrutiny after messages traded with Cook County State’s Attorney Kim Foxx — about the alleged hoax linked to actor Jussie Smollett — emerged shortly before prosecutors dropped all charges against Smollett on Tuesday.

Tchen started practicing law in 1983, after she graduated from Northwestern University’s Pritzker School of Law, and currently leads the Chicago branch of Buckley LLC. In between, she worked in the Obama White House, first as the director of the Office of Public Engagement and later as the first lady’s chief of staff.

Given her comprehensive legal background, her influence on the investigation into the allegations of fraud against Jussie Smollett has raised eyebrows in the Windy City.

Public records obtained by the Chicago Sun-Times showed that Tchen sent Foxx an early-morning text on Feb. 1 saying she “wanted to give you a call on behalf of Jussie Smollett and family who I know. They have concerns about the investigation.” Three days earlier, Smollett had said two men attacked him on the way home.

Later that day, the Sun-Times reported that a relative of Smollett sent Foxx a text, sparking a relationship that eventually led to Foxx recusing herself from the investigation and prosecution. Foxx also was shown to have emailed Tchen: “Spoke to [Chicago Police] Superintendent [Eddie] Johnson. I convinced him to reach out to FBI to ask that they take over the investigation. He is reaching out now and will get to me shortly.”

Prosecutors on Tuesday abruptly dropped all charges against Smollett after the “Empire” actor — accused of faking a racist, anti-gay attack on himself — agreed to do volunteer service and to let the city keep his $10,000 in bail, in a decision that sparked outrage among Johnson and Mayor Rahm Emanuel, among others. The prosecutors gave no detailed explanation for why they abandoned the case only five weeks after filing the charges and threatening to pursue Smollett for the cost of a monthlong investigation, adding that said they still believe Smollett concocted the assault.

Tchen’s motivations for reaching out to Foxx were unknown. Other links between the two were unclear. Tchen did not respond to multiple interview requests from Fox News and her office declined requests for comment.

Questions about any legal or ethical impropriety remained unresolved. The Illinois ethical code for attorneys’ states: “A lawyer shall not engage in conduct that is prejudicial to the administration of justice.”

Jim Grogan, the deputy administrator and chief counsel at the Attorney Registration and Disciplinary Commission, said the law typically applies to attorneys who obfuscate and encumber the legal process by wasting the court’s time. He’s not aware of any precedent in Illinois regarding an attorney who has no clients in the case.

It’s unclear if Tchen was representing anyone in the Smollett family when she reached out to Foxx.

“The fun thing about that rule is that it’s so broadly written,” Grogan said. “You’ve got to say to yourself, what’s my role as a lawyer being involved in all this?”

She knew her role, Mr. Grogan.

It was to get Jussie Smollett off the hook.

This is not the first time that the Obamas have interjected themselves in a local police matter.

On July 16, 2009, Harvard University professor Henry Louis Gates Jr. was arrested at his Cambridge, Massachusetts home by local police officer Sgt. James Crowley, who was responding to a 9-1-1 caller’s report of men breaking and entering the residence. The arrest initiated a series of events that gained an international spotlight because of the involvement of Barack Hussein Obama, the President of the United States of America.

“I don’t know, not having been there and not seeing all the facts, what role race played in that,” Obama said after Gates’s arrest. “But I think it’s fair to say, number one, any of us would be pretty angry; number two, that the Cambridge police acted stupidly in arresting somebody when there was already proof that they were in their own home, and, number three, what I think we know separate and apart from this incident is that there’s a long history in this country of African Americans and Latinos being stopped by law enforcement disproportionately.”

…He scheduled an event at the White House dubbed the “beer summit” and invited Gates and the officer who arrested him to have a conversation with him and Vice President Biden.

…News of the arrest set off a national debate about racial profiling that consumed the first summer of Obama’s presidency.

Six days after the arrest, Obama held a conference to talk about health care and was asked about the Gates arrest. He gave his comments, which he later said he regretted.

The beer summit yielded fuzzy photographs of the four men drinking and eating peanuts. But the lasting impression was that the president had stepped into a divisive racial debate for which he was unprepared.

And, now, they just got a man guilty of attempting to cause more racial division in this country off the hook.

While Obama and his wife lived in 1600 Pennsylvania Avenue, they showed that they were both quite adept at fanning the fires of racial division, especially after the shooting of the thug Michael Brown in Ferguson, Missouri, and the subsequent incidences in Baltimore and New York.

Unfortunate incidences all turned into rhetorical bonfires by President Obama and the Democratic Party, eager to use these moments of racial division to split the country at the seems in order to gain political power.

However, in the case of Jussie Smollett, the Obamas are no longer the First Couple of our nation, so they have to practice covert Machiavellian manipulations from their “command center” a couple of blocks away from the White House.

Just as they did during Obamas run for the Illinois Senate Seat and during the 8 long years of the Obama Administration, the Obamas used “Chicago Politics” to skirt the rules in order to provide a desired outcome…

…”by whatever means necessary.”

From “Hands Up, Don’t Shoot” to “Guys in MAGA Hats”…Dems “Rush to Judgment” to “Divide and Conquer”

PROLOGUE:

(Newsbusters.org, June 1, 2015) – The phrase “Hands up, don’t shoot,” has come to define a movement protesting alleged mistreatment of African-Americans at the hands of police. It came from a witness account of how African-American 18-year-old Michael Brown was killed by a white police officer.

Only the account proved to be entirely false. Even the Justice Department has said so.

The news media helped spread the theme with massive coverage of the Ferguson, Mo., shooting. Journalists are still perpetuating it, though the claim has been disproven.

ABC, NBC and CBS used the phrase — mostly B-roll of protesters chanting — an incredible 140 times from the day Brown was shot to the date the Department of Justice report was released. Even after the government determined the phrase had no credibility, network journalists continued to use it an additional 16 times, most recently in coverage of the Baltimore riots and during protester attacks on citizens in Cleveland following the Brelo verdict.

PRESENT:

TMZ.com reports that

A grand jury will hear the Jussie Smollett case early next week … law enforcement sources tell TMZ.

Law enforcement sources connected to the investigation tell TMZ, the 2 brothers who were arrested and then released are staying somewhere around the Loop in downtown Chicago under the watchful eye of police so no one gets to them. We’re told cops especially want to make sure Jussie does not contact the brothers.

We’re told when police raided the home of the 2 brothers they found magazines with pages torn out, and authorities are now trying to determine if the missing pages are connected to the threatening letter that was sent to Jussie 8 days before the alleged attack.

Our sources say early on they asked Jussie if he’d sign complaints against the 2 men who attacked him and he was clear that he would. But, when he found out the 2 brothers were the ones in custody we’re told he said he knew them, felt bad for them and declined to sign the complaints. Our sources say although cops believe the brothers purchased the rope that was around Jussie’s neck after the incident, there is no surveillance video at the hardware store because it erases after a week.

We’re told the way they tracked the 2 brothers down was by their movements in arriving and leaving the scene around Jussie’s apartment building. As we reported, they left in either a cab or an Uber, but we’re told cops tracked the vehicle and the 2 brothers got out on their way home and into another vehicle. As one source put it, “It was almost like a bad spy movie.”

The sources say there were red flags from the get-go. Cops were extremely suspicious when Jussie took them out to the area where he said he was attacked and pointed to an obscure camera saying how happy he was that the attack was on video. Turns out the camera was pointing in the wrong direction. Cops thought it was weird he knew the location of that camera.

And, there’s this. We’re told investigators didn’t believe the 2 alleged attackers screamed, “This is MAGA country,” because, “Not a single Trump supporter watches ‘Empire.'”

And, a few loose ends … we’re told when cops picked up the 2 brothers at O’Hare Airport, police were armed with 3 warrants for each man, one of which was to seize their phones.

We’re also told there is no video of a “rehearsal” of the attack in the street.

Jussie and his lawyer have vehemently denied the attack was staged, maintaining this was a hate crime.

Why are Democrats so Hell-bent on believing and spreading lies while attempting to split our nation apart at the seam?

The answer is that they are continuing the Obama Rhetorical Weapons of Class Envy and Racial Division.

The Far Left members of the Democratic Party are have no reasonable means by which to end their national temper tantrum which began on the night of November 8, 2016.

President Donald J. Trump is fulfilling all of his campaign promises which he made to the American People, thereby ensuring his re-election.

No weapon which has been conceived of by those in the Halls of Power in DC, the Northeast Corridor, and the Left Coast has, so far, been able to end his presidency.

And now, with the House and Senate Committees having concluded that there is absolutely no proof of Russian Collusion by President Trump and word through the grapevine that Special Counsel Robert Mueller will follow suit, Democrats are more desperate than ever to find something…ANYTHING by which to bring down our 45th President.

Which explains Congressman “Little” Adam Schitt…err…Schiff’s vow to continue with his House Committee’s “investigations”, even if Mueller reports that he has nothing.

By it is not just acceptance of the lies themselves that is so troubling.

It is the perpetuation of them by the Propaganda Arms of the Democrats, the Main Stream Media and the Entertainment Industry.

I guarantee you, gentle readers, that these clowns will continue to defend Jussie Smollett, even if he goes to jail for lying his arse off.

They will simply continue to falsely and heinously declare that Trump is “Hitler” and that Smollett was well-intentioned and that even though the charges against Trump Supporters were false…they were “true” in spirit.

The Democratic Party has swung so far to the left of the Political Spectrum that they have fallen off the edge of reality.

And historically, when followers of a political ideology start believing their own propaganda, based on misconceptions and false judgment, instead of reality, both Marxism and fascism occur.

We have a political party proclaiming immorality as morality, evil as good, intolerance as tolerance, Marxism as “sharing the wealth”, and lies as truth.

What began as a firecracker during the Obama Administration has turned into a political mushroom cloud.

We must continue to fight back against those who would “radically change” our Sovereign Nation in to something that it was never meant to be.

We must continue to Make America Great Again.

“Persons of Interest” Sought in Smollett Assault…But, Did It Actually Happen?

FoxNews.com reports that

Photos of “people of interest” connected to the alleged attack on “Empire” actor Jussie Smollett were released by the Chicago Police Department Wednesday night.

Smollett, 36, told investigators he was brutally attacked early Tuesday by two unknown men who yelled out “racial and homophobic slurs.”

The police department said earlier Wednesday that they reviewed hundreds of hours of footage from downtown surveillance cameras, but had yet to find footage of the alleged attack.

But hours later Chicago Police’s Chief Communications Officer Anthony Guglielmi released two photos of those possibly connected to the alleged beating on Twitter.

“While video does not capture an encounter, detectives are taking this development seriously & wish to question individuals as more cameras are being reviewed,” Guglielmi wrote.

The pictures appear to show two people, dressed in dark clothing, walking along a sidewalk next to a building.

Investigators told Fox News that while walking near the Chicago River around 2 a.m. on Tuesday, Smollett said two men approached him and yelled, “This is MAGA country.” The actor told police the men struck him in the face with their hands and poured an unknown chemical on him before wrapping a rope around his neck.

Smollett, according to authorities, took himself to Northwestern Memorial Hospital for treatment.

“Given the severity of the allegations, we are taking this investigation very seriously and treating it as a possible hate crime,” the Chicago police said in a statement after the alleged attack. “Detectives are currently working to gather video, identify potential witnesses and establish an investigative timeline.”

Smollett plays openly gay musician Jamal Lyon on the Fox series. The actor told Ellen DeGeneres in 2015 that he identifies as gay but does not discuss his personal life in public.

In a statement to Fox News, 20th Century Fox Television and Fox Entertainment said: “We are deeply saddened and outraged to learn that a member of our EMPIRE family, Jussie Smollett, was viciously attacked last night. We send our love to Jussie, who is resilient and strong, and we will work with law enforcement to bring these perpetrators to justice. The entire studio, network and production stands united in the face of any despicable act of violence and hate — and especially against one of our own.”

“Empire” is shot in Chicago and is currently in production. A spokesperson for Fox Broadcasting Company confirmed to Fox News Wednesday night that “security has been increased on the production and Mr. Smollett.”

I wish no harm to Mr. Smollett and if he was actually attacked by a couple of white rednecks wearing MAGA hats at 2 in the morning in Downtown Chicago, where they would have stuck out like fireflies in a pasture at midnight, then the perpetrators deserve any punishment that they will receive when caught and adjudicated.

However…his story seems awfully implausible to me.

Remember Tawana Brawley?

Museumofhoaxes.com tells the story:

On November 28, 1987, a 15-year-old black girl named Tawana Brawley was found lying inside a trash bag outside an apartment building located in Wappangers Falls, New York. She was covered in feces and racial insults had been scrawled on her body. When questioned by police she claimed that a group of white men, including police officers, had raped and beaten her. The black community rallied around her, and a prominent black leader, the Reverend Al Sharpton, appointed himself her spokesman. Support for Brawley reached its peak on June 15, 1988 when her advisers held a meeting at the Bethany Baptist Church in Brooklyn that was broadcast to an audience of ten million viewers.

However, the material evidence did not back up Brawley’s claims. Her body displayed no signs of rape or assault. She was not frostbitten, even though she had supposedly been kept naked in the freezing woods for days. The feces on her body turned out to be from a neighbor’s dog, and even more damningly, a local resident of the apartment community where she was found claimed to have seen her climb into the trashbag alone and lie down of her own accord.

In October 1988 a grand jury issued a report following a seven-month investigation. It concluded that Brawley’s claims were a hoax. Many speculated that Brawley had made up a wild story in order to avoid punishment at the hand of her stepfather for having run away from home for three days. But Brawley herself insisted that she was telling the truth, a stance which she has maintained to this day. More than anything else, the episode and its bitter aftermath displayed the deep racial divisions that still haunted American society.

The question is…is Mr. Smollett so filled with rage over the fact that Donald J. Trump in the President of the United States of America that he would make up being assaulted in order to further the Democratic Party and Main Stream Media narrative concerning President Trump and us “Deplorables”?

Ladies and gentlemen of the jury, please allow me to present as Exhibit A…a tweet directed to the 45th President of the United States of America, Donald J. Trump.

***I apologize for the language contained in Mr. Smollett’s Tweet.

I am not accusing Mr. Smollett of anything, as the jury is still out.

However, given Chicago’s reputation as being steeped in gang activity with numerous homicides occurring on an almost daily basis with 18 people murdered so far this year, no one with any sense would have been out that time of night.

Nothing has been proven so far as to whether Mr. Smollett was actually assaulted or not.

If you were, sir, I am sorry.

If you were not, sir, you are sorry.

Until He Comes,
