Smollett’s bogus “hate crime” exposed; No MAGA component & Update

By now we’re all past the point of nausea with the ongoing saga of Jussie Smollett, a character most of us had never heard of before he staged his racially based charade of being the victim of a hate crime —- perpetrated by, you guessed it — two guys wearing MAGA caps.  They tied him up, beat him, poured bleach on him, put a loose noose around his neck, for ultimate effect and derided him with racial and homophobic slurs. Smollett was victimized because he is black and homosexual. Leftist celebrities and politicians raced to his side, using the incident to castigate Trump supporters.

Except no such crime occurred. 

Jussie Smollett concocted the bizarre hoax to bring attention to himself with the ultimate goal of boosting his salary in the televised series in which he co-starred. Smollett was paid a paltry $65,000 per episode for his role in the “Empire.”  There are 18 episodes per season. No wonder he was dissatisfied.

Smollett, 36, initially sent a threatening note to himself. When that didn’t do the trick, he hired two Nigerian brothers for $3,500 to stage the attack.

Obviously, Smollett doesn’t watch ‘Forensic Files,’ or he would have known his scheme would unravel and he’d be found out. Police work is exemplary in the 21st century.

Smollett was arrested and released Thursday after posting $100,000 bond. If convicted of the Class 4 Felony, he faces up to three years in prison for his role in this hoax, finally gaining more notoriety then he did for his role in the program, which in all likelihood is his career finale.

The best part of this pathetic charade in which he purposely blamed the fake assault on supporters of President Trump, was this stellar press conference featuring Chicago Police Superintendent Eddie Johnson. And whaddaya know? it’s been blasted by Smollett’s defense attorneys.

Grand Jury indicts Smollett on 16 counts

A Chicago Grand Jury has indicted “Empire” actor Jussie Smollett on 16 counts of disorderly conduct and lying to police about being the victim of a racist and anti-gay attack.  When he story became suspicious, His character was written out of upcoming episodes.

Following his false reporting of the crime, extensive investigations of video footage of the purported crime scene showed no attack occurred.

Two brothers Smollett paid $3500 to stage the hoax came forward with evidence that Smollett was angry because he was not being paid what he thought his talents were worth. He might be able to read lines, but he has major trouble with staging. He described the non-existent attackers as wearing MAGA hats and other Trump gear, and yelling racist and anti-gay slurs at him

If found guilty, each charge carries a sentence that could range from probation to four years.

    The media jumped to conclusions, as is increasingly the case these days. It assigns guilt based on skin color or gender. Robin Roberts sympathetically interviewed Smollett because his lie played into the anti-Trump narrative that permeates the alphabet networks.

  2. Saguaro Sam says:

    The story goes very deep.

    The Smollett family has their own cookbook and prev. had a reality show.
    Who are they?
    Related to Kamala Harris?

    Interesting that an anti-lynching bill that been introduced in Congress in the weeks previous to this faux attack. The bill was going nowhere.
    Then, Jussie shows up with a noose around his neck, etc.
    And, BAM,
    just like that, the anti-lynching bill is off and running again.

    Why did he not turn over his cell phone to the police? Said he wanted to protect certain contacts.
    Who was he coordinating with?

    Even Charles Barkley got a belly laugh out of this farce. Because it is alleged that Smollett paid the bulked up co-conspirators with a Personal Check!
    And when you think of going to an out of the way bodega to buy masks and red hats, do Not assume that they do Not have crystal clear CCTV (because they did, inside and outside).

    Why are the Dems pushing an anti-lynching law?
    Because they know that President Trump knows everything.
    That they are traitors. What happens to traitors?

    Meanwhile,
    Watch Nikki Haley. Why would she post photos of herself with Susan Rice, John Brennan and other bad actors?
    Watch Mitt Romney. Ann Coulter’s carrying water for him, and is a lot richer for doing so. All that off-shore money. Bermuda.

      In this tweet, Kamala Harris, the former California Attorney General who should know better, jumped to conclusions before the facts were in. Using incendiary language, she compared the Smollett hoax to a modern day lynching.” Harris is now a declared Democrat presidential candidate.

      • Saguaro Sam says:

        Kamala Harris brags on a radio show about her own use of marijuana. Remember her former position within the State Gov of California. Did she prosecute others while she used?

        Her grandfather, Hamilton Brown, a slave owner in Jamaica, as reported by K’s own father.

        She had her own special type of security detail when a Cali employee. BHO was proud.
        and remember that former Mayor Willie Brown said that she was (a woman of questionable morals).

    Variety, the entertainment newspaper, is reporting Smollett has been removed from the final Season 5 episodes of the Fox series “Empire” in the wake of his arrest Thursday morning:

    “The events of the past few weeks have been incredibly emotional for all of us” said series executives Lee Daniels, Danny Strong, Brett Mahoney, Brian Grazer, Sanaa Hamri, Francie Calfo and Dennis Hammer. “Jussie has been an important member of our ‘Empire’ family for the past five years and we care about him deeply. While these allegations are very disturbing, we are placing our trust in the legal system as the process plays out. We are also aware of the effects of this process on the cast and crew members who work on our show and to avoid further disruption on set, we have decided to remove the role of ‘Jamal’ from the final two episodes of the season.”

    Fox had previously issued multiple statements in support of Smollett, referring to him as a “consummate professional” during his time on “Empire.” The tone shifted, however, following his arrest, with the network saying they were “evaluating the situation” and “considering [their] options.”

  4. Braveheart says:

    “Empire” creator Lee Daniels is also gay, so that theme permeates the series.
