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)

Let’s look at this another way, what if it had been a trump supporter, who faked an attack by Antifa or one of the other left group, now would they get the same pass from a prosecutor? Ask yourself is there still justice in our court systems that are now nothing but political hacks left over from the last disgraceful administration.

So lil Jussie won’t do time. Iron Mike intervened on his behalf. Too bad for him, he would have had big fun in prison. If you get your ass in a jam, who ya gonna call? The Clinton/Obongo/Soros axis of evil. They’re good, just ask Laura Silsby, et al. There is something surpassingly odd about this case, can’t put my finger on it. It’s either too good or too bad to be true

The left is totally lawless. They don’t even understand right vs wrong. This was always a problem but it became rancid under Obongo. We never had a more divisive President.

These disgusting nihilists make a mockery of all we hold dear. Everything is about getting Whitey.

Jussie’s supposed community service was volunteering at Jesse Jackass’ Rainbow PUSH this past weekend.

Jussie “serviced” the community by going on the down low.

And just when is Rainbow PUSH going to be audited? It’s hardly a non-profit – Jesse profits quite well.

The token States’ Attorney Kim Foxx & Jussie Smollett deserve something truly horrible to happen to them for this travesty of justice, along with Tina Tchen, Moochelle Obama’s former CoS who started this ball rolling.

One thing I think’s gonna happen as a consequence, is the Chicago PD will start solving even fewer crimes, because now they think the State’s Attorney’s office will drop more cases like this – couple that with the police reforms that Rahm Emanuel signed up for with the Obama DoJ, and crime in general will get even worse.

Jackie Puppet

To put it simply, this is “payback” for Chicago PD officer Jason Van Dyke’s relatively light sentence in gunning down a doped-up Laquan McDonald a few years back.

That incident is ultimately what led Kim Foxx into running for State’s Attorney.

Mayor Rahm Emmanuel (an alleged Mossad agent) said that the decision not to go to trial “was a whitewash.” Oh, Yes. WHO is behind the whitewash? WHY was this case—a ripe peach ready to be picked off the tree—ditched? THIS is the Answer: Barack Hussein Obama. # 44 was behind this, at least in the idea stage. PROBLEM: It will never be proved. Here’s why: He never contacted Smollett directly. We need to study the various “conspiracy theories,”—which turn out to be conspiracy facts (whether they can be proved or not)—and find out how they work. Just as conservatives were… Read more »

Sadly, for wrong or for right, this makes black people look really bad. A black criminal, a black judge, a black prosecutor and the criminal get off. Having heard the cries of thousands of protesters at hundreds of protests for decades of “No justice, no peace!” is this the justice black people have been waiting for for so long, to get away with breaking the law? I hope not, and I think not. Black people are like drug addicts. The only way for a drug addict to get off is they have to get tired of being sick and tired.… Read more »

I just wonder if they dropped the charges on the two black “white supremists”also, just to be fair.

As the saying goes “is not who you know but who you ……! The community united, that is Michael and Barack’O and company, Jessie Jackson, the Rainbow Coalition Master, have hooked a low blow to JUSTICE. Juicy has a sealed record but EVERYBODY know he has an indelible past, present and no future. As in many cases, this will be a burden to Juicy, so he better be strong or PTSD will claim what’s left of him.

This is how the Obongo’s and their “friends” repay Whitey. Whitey deserves it for daring to take on this poor oppressed black millionaire.

This case is a travesty of justice because you do not drop charges and claim to have done so because you received bond money and fake hours of self imposed community service. Call a spade a spade Madame prosecutor. Seems unprofessionaland and questionable on every level of prosecutorial governance. Why were not the police consulted before dropping the case? Why spend tax payer dollars to indict? Finally, if a head boss prosecutor recuses themself from a case due to conflict of interest or bias or confluct due to pre charging handling (which she allegedly did bc she contacted and texted… Read more »

Part 1 – I think the Chicago PD wanted to get this out through the FOI Act requested by the Chicago Tribune, before the case was sealed

It’s diiiiiiirty in Chiraq. From Andy Ngo: “Do you consider him guilty?” State’s Attorney Kim Foxx is questioned by ABC 7 Chicago on why the charges were dropped against Jussie Smollett. She hesitates to answer. It was revealed through a FOIA that she privately communicated w/his friend & family.” “Important: Cook County State’s Attorney Kim Foxx did NOT formally recuse herself in Jussie Smollett case. She says she “informally separated herself from ‘decision-making.'” Records show she privately communicated w/Smollett’s personal contact & family.” “Read the police reports on the Smollett hoax! The State’s Attorney office did NOT want them released.… Read more »

The lesson: we ALL need to save up $10,000 in a “rainy day fund” so that, if the need arises, we can “buy ourselves off” from any State or Federal charges. And then….we can all go on to a film/TV career as tho’ nothing had ever happened on our part……..Life is Great here in the USA!

The entire thing is blown out of proportion. Take away all the drama and the TV cameras what you have is a black dude playing a prank. The law does not look at celebrity status, it looks at the alleged crime. It was not that serious. Slap on hand, small fines, community service. Blaming black privilege, strings, all that is crap. The police saw an opportunity to puff themselves up, same with mayor. They went on TV to tell 7 billion people that HE WAS GUILTY. Bad move. Police cannot act like a court and give sentence. Shows how stupid… Read more »

Now he and his lawyer are claiming that his black assailants wore “whiteface”.

Yesterday Foxx claimed that he would have been convicted if he went to trial so she had to do something. Barry and Mike are up to their slimy necks in this.

Occam’s Razor : the simplest expanation is the right one. He is a Black, gay “celebrity.” The prosecutor is a Black, female who was lobbied in his behalf by the past Black First Lady of the USA (through her aide) for mercy/help. He was “excused” thereafter within a day or so of his transgressions. Easiest answer is—–“he got off.”

Nowhere have I seen the possibility put forward that this is a new kind of false flag. Has all the markings and lo and behold they let the scumbag go. Either that or his hoax turned into a shakedown.

[…] After all charges against him were dropped, Smollett has the chutzpah to insist that he really is a victim of hate crime and that the manifestly fake “attack” really happened. (See my post “No justice: Chicago prosecutors drop all charges against fake hate-crime actor Jussie Smollett”) […]
