  • Brothers flip, agree to cooperate in Jussie Smollett case

    CHICAGO — Two brothers who admitted helping actor Jussie Smollett stage a racist and homophobic attack in Chicago last year are again willing to help in the case after initially saying they were done cooperating with prosecutors, their attorney said Thursday. In yet another strange twist in a story that has been full of them, attorney Gloria Schmidt Rodriguez said in a statement that Abimbola (Abel) and Olabinjo (Ola) Osundairo changed their minds after a 9mm handgun that was seized during a search of their home last year was located after it went missing.
  • Two brothers 'paid' by Jussie Smollett to 'carry out homophobic attack' new REFUSE to testify against him because they say the cops are still treating them like suspects

    Two brothers who cops allege Jussie Smollett paid to carry out a staged hate crime against him, are now refusing to cooperate with the case because they're being treated like suspects. The Chicago Police Department claims Ola and Abel Osundario were paid $3,500 to jump the Empire actor last January before he claimed he was victim of a homophobic attack. The acting brothers agreed to help police in the case against Smollett but now they have changed their minds because the police are withholding their belongings as part of evidence.

    Former First Lady Michelle Obama commemorated Juneteenth on Friday with a statement suggesting that those who have protested — in the past and present — have “led us forward.” “Even though the story has never been tidy, and Black folks have had to march and fight for every inch of our freedom, our story is nonetheless one of progress,” Obama said, referring to her grandfathers, whom she said were the grandchildren of enslaved people. They grew up in the Jim Crow south and “migrated north in search of a better life,” she continued:

    The former first lady said she, too, is feeling “scared,” “confused” and “angry” about racial injustices in America following the May 25 death of George Floyd, an unarmed black man whose police custody death in Minneapolis sparked violent protests across the country. She said Floyd’s death was “not a complete anomaly” and that the unrest had been the direct result of “decades of unaddressed prejudice and inequality.”

    I've never been a betting woman, especially now that I'm too old to earn back anything I lose. But recently I made a chump-change wager with an acquaintance of mine, who figured he'd easily pick up a few bucks in a fantasy-fed transaction that was his to win. And so, within seconds, he was on board to thwart my bet that Michelle Obama will be Joe Biden's running mate. The way I see it, my suggestion is not all that bizarre. Nor, for that matter, is it original. But for my eager Republican friend, it seemed preposterous. As expected, he...

    Former second lady Jill Biden told CNN on Friday that she'd love to see the former first lady accept a spot as running mate on her husband's ticket. "I’d love it if Michelle [Obama] would agree to it," she said. "But I think she’s had it with politics. I don't know. She’s so good at everything she does. That would be wonderful." Her comments came amid speculation surrounding whom former Vice President Joe Biden, the presumptive Democratic nominee, would choose as his running mate. Biden has pledged to choose a female running mate but it's unclear whom that woman will...
  • Michelle Obama Netflix Documentary Panned by Critics: Bland, Self-Celebratory, Paper-Thin(Photo warning!)

    Becoming, the new Michelle Obama documentary on Netflix, seems like the kind of left-wing hagiography that mainstream media critics would lap up in Pavlovian fashion. Instead, the movie has fallen flat with reviewers who have called it “bland,” “self-celebratory,” and a “paper-thin” account of the former first lady. The documentary is the latest collaboration between Netflix and the Obamas, who struck a lucrative production deal with the streamer in 2018. Former Obama national security advisor Susan Rice currently sits on Netflix’s board of directors.

    Former first lady Michelle Obama said in her newly-released Netflix documentary Becoming that having children was a “concession” that cost her “aspirations and dreams.” Obama made the remarks while talking about her desire to become “equal” to her husband, President Barack Obama. “My relationship with Barack was all about our equal partnership,” Obama recalled. “If I was going to have a unique voice with this very opinionated man, I had to get myself up and set myself off to a place where I was going to be his equal.” However, the birth of their two daughters, Malia and Sasha, “changed”...

    Michelle Obama says it was a “slap in the face’’ that minorities didn’t go to the polls in 2016 — and has no plans on re-entering the political spotlight amid a push to make her Joe Biden’s running mate. “It takes some energy to go high, and we were exhausted from it … when you’re the first black anything,’’ she said of her and her husband, former President Barack Obama, in a new Netflix documentary set to air Wednesday, May 6. “You know, the day I left the White House, it was painful to sit on that stage, and then...

    Economic expertise and crisis management skills are top qualities Democratic voters want to see in a vice-presidential pick for their party - even more so than executive or legislative experience - as concerns about the pandemic and the economy now become a lens through which voters see that selection process. Those criteria become even more important to Democrats who are very concerned about either their own job losses, or contracting the coronavirus themselves. Elizabeth Warren is well atop Democratic voters' list of those who should be considered for vice president - with 71% saying she should be - and Warren...

    When she was an associate dean at the University of Chicago, Michelle Obama organized a panel discussion featuring her husband, then a state senator, as well as Bill Ayers, the infamous former leader of the Weather Underground anti-American domestic terrorist group. The detail was documented by this reporter in 2008 and may be among the material that becomes newly relevant amid speculation the former first lady could be picked as Joe Biden’s running mate. Such a move could set off renewed scrutiny of Michelle Obama’s past radical associations. Her husband’s past radical ties became hot button issues during the 2008...

Many of Donald Trump’s retail-politicking strengths — the huge rallies, his command of crowds — have been neutralized, and while he still has control of the narrative from his bully pulpit in the West Wing, the national media remains dead set against him, and puts the worst possible spin on every word he speaks.

    Former First Lady Michelle Obama has been given a show by PBS starting next week, the taxpayer funded network announced Friday. The timing of the announcement comes after Democrats marked $75 million for PBS’s parent the Corporation for Public Broadcasting in the coronavirus relief bill that passed at the end of March. Newsbusters reported the $75 million is on top of the $465 million given CPB in the current year’s federal budget, which is an increase of $20 million over the previous year.

    Former Vice President Joe Biden’s campaign is planning a rollout for Michelle Obama’s endorsement, although there are questions around just how public a role the enormously popular former first lady will play in his campaign. Sources tell The Hill that the Biden campaign’s early plans include a focus on remote fundraising and voter registration efforts. The trick for Michelle Obama and the Biden campaign is finding the right balance for the pop culture icon, who could be a massive asset for the campaign but has never shown much enthusiasm for campaign politics. A source close to Michelle Obama said the...

    The Texas Department of State Health Services is urging those who recently visited the San Antonio Stock Show and Rodeo to go get checked out by a doctor. According to officials, rodeo visitors could have been exposed to rabies after an animal on the grounds contracted the disease. A student from Miller Grove ISD in Hopkins County was showing an infected solid black Brangus heifer between Feb. 11-14 that public health officials said was capable of spreading the virus. The warning states that the cow was only outside of the barn during transportation and while being shown. DHS has been...
