    Chicago's top prosecutor, Kim Foxx, has been subpoenaed to appear in court in relation to her handling of the Jussie Smollett case. The Cook County State's Attorney has been summoned by retired appellate judge Sheila O’Brien, who is pushing for a special prosecutor to investigate the case against the Empire actor, reported The Chicago-Sun Times. The Times reports that O'Brien has also requested that Foxx’s top deputy, Joseph Magats, appear at the hearing and produce documents from the original case to assure that they have not been “altered or destroyed and will not be destroyed throughout this case,” according to...

    After a week of heated protests and calls for her resignation, Cook County State’s Attorney Kim Foxx and African-American leaders condemned Chicago’s police union and defended how the prosecutor’s office addressed an actor’s alleged hate crime hoax. Foxx vowed to remain at her post during a Saturday news conference, despite intense controversy sparked in March when her office dropped a 16-count indictment that accused television actor Jussie Smollett of orchestrating a racist and homophobic attack on himself to advance his career. Foxx declined to address “the substance of the case” with reporters gathered at the Rev. Jesse Jackson’s Rainbow/PUSH Coalition...
  • Smollett Nominated for NAACP Award — Seriously, Not Satire

    03/29/2019 11:57:39 AM PDT · by Cubs Fan · 54 replies
    From the “life imitates art imitates life imitates art” ad nauseam file, I thought this headline was satire, but noooo: “Jussie Smollett is nominated for an NAACP Award.” Of course, Smollett just walked free on 16 felony counts after his hoax hate crime in January. If you ever needed evidence that the NAACP is a race-bait organization run by hoax and scam hustlers, this would be it. Six-time host of Saturday’s festivities, “Black-ish” star Anthony Anderson, said, “I hope he wins. I’m happy for him that the system worked in his favor because the system isn’t always fair, especially for...

    Tea Pary ^ | 02/22/19
    Over the last few weeks, we have watched Jussie Smollet turn from a martyr of the resistance to disgraced hate hoaxer who has seriously undermined the left’s narrative on racist Trump supporters. But did Smollett act alone? Was it really entirely his idea to fake a politically-chared hate hoax, or was he acting on behalf of bigger and much more powerful players? Many people are now alleging that the whole hoax was planned at the highest level of Obama’s deep state and designed specifically to reignite the race war in the US.

    The owner of a sporting goods store in Colorado says his shop is going out of business after he stopped selling Nike products over the company's controversial campaign with Colin Kaepernick.

    SNIP But 44 years ago, facing a backlash against busing from white voters, the future vice president voiced concerns not just about the policy of busing, which he had supported when first seeking election in 1972, but about the impact of desegregation on American society. He argued that segregation was good for blacks and was what they wanted. “I think the concept of busing … that we are going to integrate people so that they all have the same access and they learn to grow up with one another and all the rest, is a rejection of the whole movement...

    Considering her record and documented history of poor ethical and moral fitness, it’s outrageous that Maxine Waters is up for chair of the ultra-powerful House Financial Services Committee, which has jurisdiction over the country’s banking system, economy, housing, and insurance. With Democrats taking control of the House of Representatives, come January the 14-term California congresswoman is expected to head the committee, which also has jurisdiction over monetary policy, international finance, and efforts to combat terrorist financing. Throughout her storied political career, Waters has been embroiled in numerous controversies, including abusing her power to enrich family members, getting a communist dictator...

    The so-called “fact checkers” at Snopes have reached out to Breitbart News in an openly partisan attempt to wash away the story of armed members of the New Black Panther Party campaigning for the Democrat gubernatorial candidate in Georgia, Stacey Abrams. Over the weekend, Breitbart News–among other media outlets–published explosive photographs of armed Black Panthers campaigning for Abrams, holding up her campaign sign while also holding up various guns. In the story, Breitbart News included a quote from the campaign of her GOP opponent, Brian Kemp, calling on her to denounce the radicals campaigning for her. The story went viral....
