Kim Foxx says criticism of her handling of Smollett case is due to her race

From Daily Mail: The Chicago prosecutor whose office dismissed charges against Jussie Smollett defended the decision on Saturday, saying the Empire actor was treated no differently than thousands of other defendants whose charges were similarly dropped since she took office.

Cook County State’s Attorney Kim Foxx made the comments during a defiant and emotional address at the Rev. Jesse Jackson Sr.’s Rainbow Push Coalition.

Foxx openly wondered if her race had something to do with the harsh criticism she’s faced since her office announced that charges against Smollett had been dropped, WGN-TV reported.

The actor was accused of staging what he claimed to be a racist and homophobic attack in January.

‘I have been asking myself for the last two weeks what is this really about,’ she said.

‘As someone who has lived in this city, who came up in the projects of this city to serve as the first African American woman in this role, it is disheartening to me…that when we get in these positions somehow the goalposts change.’

Foxx, who recused herself from the case after she communicating with a Smollett relative during the probe, reiterated that she welcomes of an independent investigation into the way she and her office handled the case.

She also reminded the audience that her office did the same thing for the nearly 6,000 low-level defendants who had their charges dropped with ‘deferred prosecution’ during her tenure.

Further, she said that under the law, Smollett could be fined a maximum of $10,000 and that the actor did pay that amount because his $10,000 bond was forfeited.

But Foxx did not address specifics of the case, or the criticism leveled by legal experts and others who said it was highly unusual not to require an admission of guilt by Smollett, particularly since at the time they dropped charges, prosecutors said they believed they could have proven the charges against the actor.

‘In my 48 years of practice, I certainly have never seen a deferred prosecution done like that,’ Richard Kling, an IIT-Kent Law School professor told the Chicago Sun-Times last week.

Foxx also responded to the calls by various critics to resign, saying that she will complete her term that ends next year and has plans to run for re-election.

You go first, de Blasio: “US needs a program for actual redistribution of wealth”

When you gonna start redistributing some of YOUR $1.5 MILLION net worth, Comrade? Because last time I looked, you and your commie wife gave only $350 to charity in 2017. Typical taxpayer, money-grabbing demorat…

As reported by NY Post: While exploring a run for president in Nevada, Mayor Bill de Blasio endorsed a committee to study reparations for descendants of slaves and then went further — saying that the country needs “a program of actual redistribution” of wealth.

A progressive activist asked the mayor his position on reparations at an event in Las Vegas Friday following the endorsement of the compensation plan by other presidential contenders like Elizabeth Warren.

“There’s no question that the issue of reparations has to be taken seriously,” said de Blasio, whose Vegas area barnstorming continues today, stating a clear, public position on the topic for the first time.

“I do believe the way to do it is to form a very public commission and say, ‘What is the way to address this problem once and for all?’”

But, he added, there needs to be a “bigger discussion about income inequality and oppression of other groups including Latinos, Native Americans, Asian and women,” he said at the event organized by the immigrant advocacy group Make the Road.

“I think we’re going to need something bigger even in a way, broader even in a way, then some of the ideas that have been put out there,” he said to the approximately 35 attendees.

“I think a program of actual redistribution which includes much heavier taxes on the wealthy,” he said. “The ultimate resolution has to be profoundly economic,” de Blasio said.

The redistribution comment went further than the message de Blasio has been honing since his state of the city speech in January—that “there’s plenty of money in this city, it’s just in the wrong hands.” During his out-of-city jaunts to early primary states de Blasio has swapped the word “city” for “world” and “country.”

His answer didn’t satisfy the activist who asked the question. “He did what a lot of candidates do, they, ‘All lives matter’ it. They try to broaden reparations for everyone,” Leslie Turner, 37, told The Post after the event.

“It’s actually ok to say, ‘This is actually for black people. We shouldn’t shy away from talking about what reparations specifically for black people could look like,” Turner said.

Other Democratic presidential candidates including Beto O’Rourke and Cory Booker support studying the matter.

Hillary 2.0: AOC fakes southern accent before black audience

Hillary Clinton did it, patronizing and pandering to black audiences by speaking in an entirely phony southern drawl.

Now, another Demonrat is also faking a southern accent before a black audience.

Yesterday, speaking at Al Sharpton’s National Action Network in New York city, self-described socialist Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (D-NY), who was a bartender when she was auditioned and recruited by the Demonrat Party, used a very bad southern accent that she never uses to tell an audience of predominately black people that there is nothing wrong with them serving other people in low skilled jobs. She said:

“I’m proud to be a bartender, ain’t nothin wrong with that. There’s nothing wrong with working retail, folding clothes for other people to buy. There is nothing wrong with preparing the food that your neighbors will eat. There is nothing wrong with driving the buses that take your family to work.”

[videopress 9K9tNMwF]

Ryan Saavedra reports for The Daily Wire that AOC’s speech “immediately sparked outrage as many accused her of racism, noting that her accent while speaking to black people was similar to how two-time failed Democratic presidential candidate Hillary Clinton would speak to black people — which was widely condemned as racist.”

“African-American” Jamarcus Dove-Simmons (@Jamarcus_Dove) tweeted: “She trying too hard. The accent is so obvious ‘Ain’t nun wrong with dat’ Every African-American does not talk in this way. I guess you’re trying to ‘win the black vote.’ This ain’t it, @AOC”

White couple have injections to darken skin so they can be black

Once upon a time, white people were perceived as high status, which led to blacks and other “people of color” (including Jews) trying to emulate whites by dyeing their hair blonde, whitening their skin, and narrowing their noses and Asians getting eyelid folds with cosmetic surgery.

The roles are now reversed if we go by Rachel Dolezal who, though white and born of white parents, pretends to be blacks by tanning her skin and styling her hair. To this day, Dolezal still insists she’s black.

The latest examples of whites wanting to be black are a German Caucasian couple, Martina Big and Michael Eurwen, who darken their pale skin color with regular synthetic hormone injections.

Jo Tweedy reports for the Daily Mail, Feb. 3, 2019, that Martina Big, 30, a German-born white erotic model and her husband Michael Eurwen, 31, both inject Melanotan, a synthetic hormone to darken their skin because they identify as black.

Big’s dramatic skin color change has been well documented in recent years. When she began the injections, Big was a white-skinned model with peroxide blonde hair, but she claims that just three jabs of Melanotan has turned her skin black. Big also had multiple operations to “enhance” her breasts to size 30S.

In March last year Big flew to Kenya to be baptised as a “real” African woman, whatever that means. She now goes by the name of Malaika Kubwa, meaning Big Angel in Swahili.

The couple say they’ve been house-hunting in Kenya and hope to make a permanent move to Africa soon because they want to be with her “people” and learn how to raise a family in the African way. Big told the Sun Online: “I not only look like an African woman, I also feel that I’m now an African woman. I spent time in Kenya last year and I felt so at home. Now I have a lot of invitations from all over Africa.” She told her Facebook followers that “I want to learn more about the black culture first, so that I can educate my future children in black (teach the black culture).”

More than teaching “black culture” to her future children, Big announced on the UK “This Morning” TV show this January that she expects her future children to be born with dark skin, despite her and husband Michael both being born white.

Saying she’s “trying to understand how genetically this would be possible,” the show’s hostess Holly Willoughby asked if doctors had told Big her baby will be black. Big replied: “Yep, they said they will be black. We have also discussed about breast feeding and if it is safe for me to have a baby. Of course – it will be a mix of me and Micheal. But I’m pretty sure it will be black, but if it is milk chocolate or a little bit lighter it doesn’t matter.”

Big later said on Facebook: “Doctors say that I am physically now a black woman and my future children will be black. And I believe the doctors!”

A Twitter user wryly observed:

“I’m so sorry, but no amount of cosmetic changes will affect your genetics. If you were born white, your children will be white. I think Martina needs to find a new doctor.”

Jana J. Pruet reports for The Blaze that, in addition to the melanotan injections to darken her skin, Big also underwent multiple plastic surgeries including a nose job, liposuction, and lip fillers to help her reach her goal of becoming an “African woman.”

Big also claims to have the largest breasts in Europe after having breast implants before her October wedding in Hawaii which made her a size 32S.

Identity politics wins in Chiraq: First black female and openly gay mayor elected

Chicago’s mayor-elect, Lori Lightfoot

Apparently body parts and sexual preference are the real qualifiers for seeking public office.

This week Chiraq elected demorat Lori Lightfoot as their next mayor. According to the AP, Lightfoot “campaigned on ridding Chicago’s government of corruption.”

HAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHA.

About Chiraq’s new mayor, from Wikipedia:

“Lori Elaine Lightfoot (born August 4, 1962) is an American politician who is currently the mayor-elect of Chicago. She has worked in private legal practice as a partner at Mayer Brown, and held various government positions in the city of Chicago, most notably as former President of the Chicago Police Board.

Lightfoot first entered the public sector as Assistant United States Attorney for the Northern District of Illinois. She cites several reasons for entering public service, including a desire to represent the African-American community, a sense of injustice based on the murder of a family member by a Ku Klux Klan member in the 1920s, and her older brother’s struggles with the law.

While working as a federal prosecutor, Lightfoot assisted with Operation Silver Shovel, an FBI investigation into Chicago corruption. She helped to convict alderman Virgil Jones. Lightfoot was issued a warning for misconduct by judge Richard Posner in a case in which she was found by the United States Court of Appeals for the Seventh Circuit to have misled a United States Circuit Judge regarding a suspect’s whereabouts, making it impossible for the judge to stay the suspect’s extradition to Norway. Lightfoot and the Justice Department at the time disputed this characterization of her actions.

In 2002, Lightfoot was appointed chief administrator of the Chicago Police Department Office of Professional Standards, a now-defunct governmental police oversight group, by Mayor Richard M. Daley. She held the position for two years. In the position, she was charged with investigating possible cases of police misconduct, including police shootings of civilians. However, a Chicago Tribune report found that the Office of Professional Standards’ investigations often lacked thoroughness. Lightfoot says her recommendations for disciplinary action were often rejected by the police department.”

Chicago voted overwhelmingly for Lightfoot as she received almost 74% of the votes, yet voter turnout was an almost historic low.

I don’t live I Chiraq so I don’t have skin in their game. But good luck to y’all who believe that a “progessive” – with a career spent almost entirely in the government sector (a brief stint in private law practice) – is going to be that “independent” leader who can magically end corruption in Chicago.

I won’t hold my breath.

Whites beg forgiveness for their ‘privilege’ with new hashtag; man drops girlfriend ’cause she’s white

Idi Amin, the late dictator of Uganda who was said to be a cannibal, once mocked British imperialism by having four Britons carry him on a makeshift throne when he made himself President-for-Life. He called himself the “white man’s burden”. (The Telegraph)

Here’s a contemporary version of white man’s burden.

Carmine Sabia reports for The Federalist Papers that “social justice warriors” filled with white guilt have created the Twitter hashtag #MyWhitePrivilege to apologize for being white.

Below is a sample of apologetic #MyWhitePrivilege tweets:

#MyWhitePrivilege means most of my interactions with law enforcement are positive. I was was [sic] once pulled over for expired registration and the cop told me just to go get it renewed and send him proof that I did.” — Catherine Griwkowsky (@CGriwkowsky) March 30, 2019

#MyWhitePrivilege allows Francis Scott Key who said ‘Africans in America are a distinct and INFERIOR race’ to write the national anthem and the song is played everywhere and demand everyone to stand. Whereas if you kneel due to injustices as black people you will be shamed. pic.twitter.com/oQDOal0hzF” — Macadon (@Macadon_YT) March 30, 2019

“Idont [sic] get scared for my life everytime I get pulled over. I dont [sic] have to worry about something in my pocket getting mistaken for a gun. I have all my doctors believe me about my pain. I have been given a leg up in life for the color of my skin #MyWhitePrivilege” — kayla cox (@kaylaccox) March 30, 2019

#MyWhitePrivilege is that I am given the benefit of the doubt in a way my black sisters are not. Even when I am angry, I’m seen as cute and non-threatening. Sure there is a healthy dose of sexism in this, but it is a privilege to be considered non-threatening.” — Erika (@thatsdoctor2you) March 30, 2019

“I’m autistic. This guy assaulted me for hand flapping. He called it “an aggressive gesture”. I assaulted right back. I wasn’t shot. #MyWhitePrivilege pic.twitter.com/UcTa8iWE55” — Randy Germain (@ElBrutoBastardo) March 30, 2019

“When you’re born with privilege, equality can feel like oppression. To everybody complaining about the hashtag, read other peoples experiences and learn something instead of always trying to start a fight. #MyWhitePrivilege” — Bobbie Dodds (@BobbieDodds) March 30, 2019

Christopher Rivas, a Latino who calls himself a storyteller and actor, actually broke up with his girlfriend because she is white.

Rivas wrote in his op/ed, “I Broke Up With Her Because She’s White,” New York Times, March 29, 2019:

O.K., let me just get to it. I think I broke up with my last girlfriend because she’s white. Actually, no, I definitely broke up with her because she’s white….

It’s been a year since I broke up with my girlfriend, and I haven’t told her the real reason. I talked around it, mumbling about how I was trying to figure out who I was or whatever. She didn’t understand. I’m not sure I do either. There was nothing wrong with her at all.

I don’t really know what my tipping point was. It just kind of happened. At 30, I woke up one day, took a deep breath, looked at her and thought, “I don’t think I can date white women anymore.”

Maybe I wouldn’t have broken up with her if it hadn’t been for all the judgment coming my way. Over the years I have dated brown women and black women, but mostly white women. I hadn’t thought about why that was, but when some brown and black people in my community started giving me a hard time about dating white women, I sensed they’d be happier if I stopped….

But the real reason I think I can no longer date white women isn’t any of that. It’s because in today’s hashtag-woke society, there is mad pressure to be hashtag-woke. To be aware of the implications of whom you’re attracted to and why. Which means that in the eyes of others, the color of the women I date is a big deal. Like I’m the problem. Like I’m betraying my people if I date white women.

But I was taught that we were all one people!

I see people watching me with a stink eye, noses turned up, as if they think black and brown people would somehow be better off if I dumped my white girlfriend. It’s a lot of pressure. Along with each watchful eye, the whispers of, “Pick a side, Chris, pick a side,” fill my already noisy mind….

How did we get here? If everyone is so woke, why are things so terrible? Maybe everyone isn’t so woke. Anyway, what am I supposed to do? How do I love as a brown body in the world in a way that makes everybody happy? I fell for a white woman and she fell for me — simple as that — yet I feel as if I’m doing the wrong thing by dating her.

Am I the problem or is everyone else? Do white women find me attractive or do they see me as some exotic idea they should find attractive? Do I find white women attractive or do I see them as some exotic idea I should find attractive? Do I even know whom I’m attracted to or why?….

So here I stand, trying to be woke, and not dating white women, and feeling kind of bad about that. Because I’m definitely dating, and thinking that the decision to no longer date white women might not be my own, that any decision to choose a side doesn’t help the whole hashtag-woke thing because how do we solve anything if we just separate and isolate? And also, I mean, a lot of white women are really cool.

Obviously white women are cool. All women are cool….

Anyway, this is me yearning, praying, journaling, writing, dialoguing, putting up a one-man show, wishing, trying to pick a side, wondering how to choose myself and trying to wrap my head around this, hoping that I’m doing woke right, because something just doesn’t feel right.

The #MyWhitePrivilege white-guilt hashtag got some pushbacks. Here’s a sample:

#MyWhitePrivilege is me entering the wrong class room, leaving 60 seconds later, and having the cops called on me cause someone thought I was a school shooter. Yes, this happened” – ☠ 𝕱𝖑𝖔𝖔𝖗 🎩 #𝕲𝖔𝖙𝖍 𝕳𝖔𝖘𝖕𝖎𝖙𝖆𝖑🖤🏥 (@Floorcina) March 30, 2019

“Asians have the highest income in the USA, but liberals are so dumb they don’t understand facts so they got #MyWhitePrivilege trending trying to perpetuate their hoax that America is a horrible and racist place that always keeps minorities down.” — Mark Dice (@MarkDice) March 30, 2019

“I can destroy the #MyWhitePrivilege myth with two words: Jussie Smollett. Can’t believe this is trending. Nice way to continue dividing our country, SJWs.” — JosiahRises (@JosiahRises) March 30, 2019

“why on God’s green Earth is #MyWhitePrivilege trending? What the Hell is wrong with you @Twitter? Why are you constantly leading the charge to divide us? Sick.. truly sick. There is no such thing as White privilege. It’s a made up concept by the left to separate us.” — Joe Pags Pagliarulo (@JoeTalkShow) March 30, 2019

#MyWhitePrivilege doesn’t exist. Ask Jussie Smollett.” — Cloyd Rivers Pics (@CloydRiversPics) March 30, 2019

Ohio Will Permanently Defund All 26 Planned Parenthood Clinics

Thursday, March 28, was a great news day. That was the day that all 26 Planned Parenthood clinics received notice from the Ohio Department of Health that their state funding will end April 20.

Brie Zeltner, writing for the Cleveland, Ohio, Plain Dealer, said the notice comes “following a federal appeals court ruling this month that upheld a 2016 Ohio law forbidding the state from sending preventive health funding to any organization, or affiliate of an organization, that ‘performs or promotes’ non-therapeutic abortions. The law was signed by former Gov. John Kasich.”

The letter from ODH, which was dated March 21, informs the organization’s 26 locations that as of April 20, they will no longer receive funding for a wide variety of programs formerly supported by the state. Last year, ODH gave about $600,000 in grants to Planned Parenthood, according to a spokesman for the department, Zeltner said.

The state money funded programs such as sexual assault services; breast and cervical cancer prevention; the STD (sexually transmitted disease) Control program; the Minority HIV/AIDS initiative; as well as five programs designed to reduce infant mortality, including Centering Pregnancy and Moms and Babies First, a neighborhood outreach program targeting high-risk black women.

There are three Ohio Planned Parenthood locations that provide abortions — in Cincinnati, Columbus, and Bedford Heights — but the nonprofits that provide these services, Planned Parenthood of Greater Ohio and Planned Parenthood Southwest Ohio Region, allegedly do not use public money to fund them. The two organizations sued after the 2016 law was signed.

On March 12th, the 6th U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals in Cincinnati ruled 11 to 6 to reverse a federal judge’s decision to declare the 2016 law unconstitutional.

Will Maule, writing for Faithwire, reported that “Planned Parenthood executives reacted with fury. ‘Ohio continues to put politics over people, putting them at greater risk. This isn’t about politics, this is about lifesaving health care’ said Planned Parenthood of Greater Ohio CEO Iris E. Harvey.”

Of the 26 locations across the state, three provide abortions. However, under the Hyde Amendment, these clinics were not permitted to receive state funding, even before the 2016 measure was passed — they are funded by Planned Parenthood of Greater Ohio and Planned Parenthood Southwest Ohio Region.

However, those on the pro-life side who are in favor of the de-funding, have pointed out that the non-abortion services provided by Ohio’s Planned Parenthood clinics have declined in recent years, while abortion rates continue to increase.

“As abortions nationally continue to drop, Planned Parenthood’s abortion numbers have increased year over year,” noted pro-life outlet, LiveAction. “It currently holds 35% of the national market share for abortions (it committed more than 330,000, according to the most recent annual report).”

In addition, Planned Parenthood has been caught up in a number of scandals, including fetal organ harvesting and even failing to report the abortions of underage girls who were brought into clinics under suspicious circumstances.

“After being initially blocked by a court ruling, Ohio has finally defunded PP of all state taxpayer money. Great news!” tweeted LiveAction’s founder, Lila Rose.

In 2017, President Trump signed a bill which allowed states to immediately begin defunding abortion organizations like Planned Parenthood by removing the family planning funding they were permitted to receive under Title X.

In a tweet March 28, Harvey said, “Gov DeWine is HEARTLESS. Just got a 30 day notice from Health Dept. Defunding Planned Parenthood work to reduce Black infant mortality, prevent violence against women, provide cancer screenings, HIV tests and sex education! All care health depts couldn’t do!”

On a personal note, I find this comment absolutely bizarre coming, as it does, from a woman who makes her living murdering babies.

Johns Hopkins professor Zackary Berger is an anti-white racist

Zackary Dov Berger, M.D., Ph.D., is an associate professor of medicine at Johns Hopkins.

Berger is also a rabid anti-Trumper and anti-white racist.

Below are some of Berger’s tweets (click here for his Twitter feed):

“Water is wet / Tuberculosis is bad / Fried chicken is tasty / Trump is a white supremacist” – 9/13/17

“BREAKING / White people keep voting wrong.” -11/8/17

“At this moment, I know where all my children are. No one is trying to kidnap or shoot or arrest them. White privilege, USA” -5/27/18

“I mean, white people are fucking stupid. Isn’t that what she said? I guess I’m going to have to read the Times again b/c she seems to be truthtelling.” -8/2/18

“More chain migrants, less white people, please.”  -10/16/18

“I’m sick of this government. I’m sick of the torturers and cruel zealots. I’m sick of the white supremacists.”

“Again, racism and white supremacy are part of our history. Ignoring them won’t make them go away. Perhaps not electing them might help.”

“Pretty psyched that my amazing Jewish partner married me even though I’m Jewish. Thank God I’m blond.” -4/2/18

Source of above image: Voat

If a white guy were to say those hateful things about Jews, it would be all over the news and we would never hear the end of it. So why is it okay for this Jewish medical doctor and professor to say hateful things about “whites”?

More recently, on March 28, 2019:

  • Berger did not deny or disavow the above composite of some of his anti-white racist tweets, but doubled down instead. Responding to a tweeter who said Berger’s racist tweets “did not age well,” Berger replied: “Nah, these are all good.”
  • Berger called Ben Shapiro one of the #TrumpJews.
  • Berger retweeted Rhea Boyd, MD, an “African American” pediatrician practicing in the San Francisco Bay Area who maintains “white supremacists” hold sway over medicine and science:

“The answer is white supremacy, a foundational value in US society from which medicine is not immune. It is used to invalidate the expertise of non-whites and demand ‘evidence’ of their claims. But our evidence will never be sufficient in a field predicated on our inferiority.” “The solution then is to expose, name, and end white supremacy, in its every manifestation in medicine. Doing so will literally change what is considered science and who are considered scientists.” -3/28/19

It is profoundly disturbing that medical doctors like Berger and Rhea Boyd politicize medicine and science, calling for the elimination of “white supremacists” from those fields, which would then result in the remaking (“literally change”) of “what is considered science” — whatever that means.

Can you imagine Berger or Boyd being your physician, who practice medicine that they believe to be fundamentally warped because of “white supremacy”? Can you imagine pediatrician Rhea Boyd treating your children?

Johns Hopkins must be so proud to have this rank racist, Zakary Berger, as a professor.

No justice: Chicago prosecutors drop all charges against fake hate-crime actor Jussie Smollett

On February 21, 2019, actor Jussie Smollett, 36, turned himself in to Chicago police after he was charged with a felony for lying to police when he claimed to be the victim of a racist and homophobic attack.

Smollett, best known for the Fox TV show Empire, who is both black and “gay”, had told police that on January 29, at around 1:30 a.m., he was accosted by two men in downtown Chicago who shouted racist and homophobic slurs, beat him up, poured bleach on him, wrapped a noose around his neck, and warned him that “This is MAGA country!”– a reference to President Trump’s “Make America Great Again” slogan.

But Smollett’s story completely fell apart: Not only had he purchased the “lyncing” rope wrapped around his neck, Smollett had paid $3500 to two Nigerian brothers, Olabinjo and Abimbola Osundairo, who are also black, to stage the fake racist-homophobic attack on him. (See my post “Fake Hate Crime: Hollyweirdo Jussie Smollett arrested“)

On the day of his arrest, at a press conference, Chicago police superintendent Eddie Johnson fumed with righteous indigation that as a black man who’s grown up in Chicago, he’s “offended” and “angry” with Smollett taking advantage of the pain and anger and racism to promote his acting career.

We were told Smollett could face probation or up to three years in prison if convicted. But the news today is that Chicago prosecutors have dropped all charges — and the fingerprints of the Obamas and George Soros are all over this stunning reversal.

Page Six reports:

The criminal case against “Empire” actor Jussie Smollett took a stunning turn Tuesday when Chicago prosecutors abruptly dropped all of the charges — after slapping him with 16 felony counts for allegedly staging a hate crime attack.

The Cook County State’s Attorney’s Office only offered a vague explanation why it was allowing Smollett to skate in the case following a surprise, five-minute court appearance in which Judge Steven Watkins sealed the case file.

“After reviewing all of the facts and circumstances of the case, including Mr. Smollet’s volunteer service in the community and agreement to forfeit his bond to the City of Chicago, we believe this outcome is a just disposition and appropriate resolution to this case,” the office said.

The move comes just a week after Chicago’s police union demanded a federal probe into the county’s top prosecutor for allegedly interfering in the case after being contacted by Michelle Obama’s former chief of staff.

The Fraternal Order of Police, which represents the department’s rank-and-file, sent a letter asking the Department of Justice to probe Cook County State’s Attorney Kim Foxx.

Foxx tried to convince Police Superintendent Eddie Johnson to turn Smollett’s case over to the FBI — after Tina Tchen, the former senior Obama aide, reached out to her, saying the “Empire” star’s family had “concerns.”

Foxx had recused herself from the case in February because she had reached out to one of Smollett’s relatives and acted as a go-between with the cops.

All charges against Smollett will be wiped clean. His two attorneys said: “The state dismissed the charges. We believe it was the correct result.… We are very anxious for Jussie to get on with his life.”

First Assistant State’s Attorney Joseph Magats (rhymes with “maggots”) — who took over the case after Foxx recused herself — said his office considered the incident a “nonviolent crime” and that Smollett has no felony criminal background. Magats insisted that dropping the charges does not mean Smollett was, in fact, the victim of a crime. He said: “Absolutely not. We stand behind the CPD investigation done in this case, we stand behind the approval of charges in this case. They did a fantastic job. The fact there was an alternative disposition in this case is not and should not be viewed as some kind of admission there was something wrong with the case, or something wrong with the investigation that the Chicago police did.”

Blah, blah, blah.

But Smollett’s attorneys, Holmes and Glandian, are sticking to Smollett’s fake story and portraying him as the real victim. They said:

“Jussie was attacked by two people he was unable to identify on January 29. He was a victim who was vilified and made to appear as a perpetrator as a result of false and inappropriate remarks made to the public causing an inappropriate rush to judgment.

Jussie and many others were hurt by these unfair and unwarranted actions. This entire situation is a reminder that there should never be an attempt to prove a case in the court of public opinion. That is wrong. It is a reminder that a victim, in this case Jussie, deserves dignity and respect. Dismissal of charges against the victim in this case was the only just result.”

For their part, Smollett’s family shamelessly proclaims Jussie’s innocence. They said:

“Our son and brother is an innocent man whose name and character has been unjustly smeared. Jussie is a son, a brother, a partner, a champion for human rights, and a genuine soul who would never be capable of what he was falsely accused of. He was the victim of an assault and then falsely blamed for his own attack. This morning truth has prevailed and he has been vindicated. All charges have been dismissed and his record expunged.”

There is no longer justice in America. The America I thought I once knew is gone and may be never was.

Update: Just after I published this post, it came to my attention that George Soros had donated $408,000 in 2016 to a super PAC that supported Cook County State’s Attorney Kim Foxx, whose office prosecuted — and dropped — the Jussie Smollett case. (Breitbart)
