  • Who owns the bombed out Nashville building?

    12/26/2020 12:17:48 PM PST · by nagant · 48 replies
    The AT&T Building is the building which was bombed. You can tell from the pictured blast pattern that the bomb van was parked just inside the parking garage. The building is owned by Cerberus Capital Management, a company founded by Stephen D. Owens and Hootan Yaghoobzadeh in 2009. Cerberus Capital Management is owned by Staple Street Capital, an owner of Dominion Software Systems. Since founding Cerberus, Owens and Yaghoobzadeh moved up to Staple Street Capital. I didn't want to post this information on a thread which speculates about the cause of the bombing in the hope that the...

    The 38-year-old former Empire actor Jussie Smollett maintains his innocence during an interview with former CNN commentator Marc Lamont Hill. The interview was posted on Instagram and Smollett still suggests that he was the victim of an incident that allegedly took place back in January of 2019, in Chicago. Lamont is currently a BET correspondent and Temple University professor. Smollett stated the following in the interview with Hill: What happened in these last two years, it has humbled me in a way that nobody could possibly understand… Out of all these jokers in this entire situation, I am the only...

    In a statement on the conclusions of his investigation, special prosecutor Dan Webb sharply criticized the handling of the Smollett case by Cook County State’s Attorney Kim Foxx and her assistant prosecutors, saying their handling was marked by disarray and misleading statements. Foxx’s office surprised and angered many in Chicago by dropping charges that accused the former “Empire” actor of staging an alleged racist and homophobic attack against himself. Smollett is still adamant that the attack was real and wasn’t a publicity hoax. Webb’s findings announced Monday came after charges were restored against Smollett by the same special prosecutor in...

    Actress Jurnee Smollett, brother of hate crime hoaxer Jussie Smollett, says HBO’s latest racially charged drama, Lovecraft Country, is a fictional reflection of a segregation and Jim Crow-era America that black people “are still on that quest today in 2020” to overcome. “[Racism] is sometimes even more of a threat because it’s unexpected,” Jurnee Smollett said on a Television Critics Association panel discussing the HBO series, which is set in 1950s. The J.J. Abrams and Jordan Peele-produced drama sees black characters face racism while battling the fictional creatures and monsters of Marc Ruff’s famous fiction novel. “It affects your livelihood...

    In September 2019 TGP reported on ties between Jussie Smollett and US Senators Kamala Harris and Cory Booker. Last night FOX News resurrected these connections. Last September we posted an article noting these connections: Jussie Smollett held a number of conversations with Cory Booker and Kamala Harris about supporting their sponsored Justice for Victims of Lynching Act and providing the needed public momentum for the bill to pass the Senate and House. he timeline of these conversations (December 21-January 18, 2019) suggests that the death threat letter he sent himself (January 22-23) and his staged attack (January 29), were timed...

    Jussie Smollett was at Trump Tower over the weekend at a Black Lives Matter Protest proving that he has absolutely no self awareness. In 2019, the actor staged a hate crime against himself. Now, he’s on the streets fighting for racial justice. At this point, Smollett is more well known for his fake hate crime than he is for his role in “Empire”. But, ever one to seek the spotlight, Jussie Smollett found a new gig headlining for BLM.

    A tudent at Texas A&M University who reported that racist notes had been left on his car windshield is responsible for the act, police say. KBTX-TV reported that in June, Texas A&M senior Isaih Martin alerted the university police when he allegedly discovered handwritten messages reading “All lives matter” and “You don’t belong here,” along with a third listing the N-word, on his vehicle, which he had parked at an apartment complex on the school’s property. Martin posted a photo of the notes to a Twitter account that has since been made private. According to KBTX, the university responded to...

    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 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.

    NASCAR driver Bubba Wallace has insisted that the rope knot found in his garage was a 'straight-up noose' and said he was 'p****d' with his critics - but accepts he 'wasn't targeted' after the FBI said there was no evidence of a hate crime. Wallace, the only black full-time driver on NASCAR's top circuit, told CNN he was 'mad because people are trying to test my character and integrity' after investigators said the 'noose' was a garage door handle which had been there since last October. Wallace told CNN's Don Lemon that 'from the evidence that we have, that I...

    Jussie Smollett took another hit in court on Wednesday when a federal judge tossed his malicious prosecution lawsuit against the city of Chicago and several police officers. Attorneys for the former "Empire" star, 37, filed the suit in November 2019, after the city of Chicago sued him for $130,000, seeking reimbursement for the overtime to police officers who were involved in investigating the alleged racist and homophobic attack on Smollett back in January 2019. The countersuit in November claimed that Smollett was the victim of a malicious prosecution that caused humiliation and extreme distress.

    Jussie Smollett had a sexual relationship with one of the Nigerian brothers who allegedly orchestrated his 'hoax' attack, a new source claims. The anonymous insider told Page Six Wednesday that the Empire star, 37, and his purported 'attacker' Abel Osundairo also visited an upscale Chicago bathhouse together on multiple occasions. 'They used to party together and he [Smollet] had a sexual relationship with [Osundairo]. They went to this affluent Chicago bathhouse multiple times and they had to show ID. It's known as a bathhouse where a lot of affluent black gay men hang out,' the source stated.

    Visits to an upscale Chicago gay bathhouse may prove that embattled “Empire” star Jussie Smollett was more than friends with his alleged attacker Ambimbola “Abel” Osundairo. “They used to party together and he had a sexual relationship with [Abel]. They went to this affluent Chicago bathhouse multiple times and they had to show ID. It’s known as a bathhouse where a lot of affluent black gay men hang out. There should be a record [of their visits],” an insider told Page Six, adding that the bathhouse records may be subpoenaed in Smollett’s upcoming trial on charges of disorderly conduct. Abel...
  • Jussie Smollett and Lee Daniels no longer on speaking terms

    SNIP Smollett and Daniels’ “relationship is nonexistent, and it was tense even before Jussie’s attack incident,” an insider told Page Six. One point of contention, we’re told, was that Daniels wanted now-disgraced musician Kelly to write songs for Smollett’s “Empire” character — and even suggested that Kelly work on the actor’s own album. SNIP Meanwhile, we’re told that Smollett would often complain to Fox execs about Daniels. “It was things like that that did not sit well with Lee,” said the insider. “He [was frustrated by] Jussie because he was constantly going over his head to Fox about their creative...

    We black people are so convenient and useful to America's leftists. Whenever there's a bit of silencing to be done, just accuse a detractor or critic of racism. A recent, particularly stupid, example is CNN's Brandon Tensley's complaint that the "Coronavirus task force is another example of Trump administration's lack of diversity." Tensley said the virus experts are "largely the same sorts of white men (and a couple women on the sidelines) who've dominated the Trump administration from the very beginning." I'd like for Tensley to tell us just what racial or sex diversity contribute to finding a cure or...

    “Mulan” star Tzi Ma is frequently recognized for his many film and television roles, including in last year’s indie hit “The Farewell” and the “Rush Hour” films. But it was an encounter weeks ago that has stayed with him. Ma had visited a Whole Foods grocery store in Pasadena, Calif., when a car approached him as he made his way to the entrance. “He rolls down the window and goes, ‘You should be quarantined,’ and then he took off,” Ma told Variety. He said he stood, speechless, before unleashing screams at the verbal assaulter, who was by then long gone....
