The threatening letter to Jussie Smollett might be more in the news soon.

You might imagine that grinding up some Tylenol to look like anthrax and mailing it to yourself in a hate hoax would be an amusing publicity stunt. And what’s the worst that can happen? It’s not like there’s a law against that, right?

Well, actually, there is a federal law against “terroristic hoax.” And it’s a felony.

CWB Chicago is a gay anti-crime website that originated to expose the crime problem on the upscale Northside, in Wrigleyville, where the Cubs play, and Boystown, the old gay neighborhood. It offers nicely written, rather rambling coverage of crime issues in Chicago, like a moderate gay yuppie Second City Cop.

Smollett threat letter called “enormous mistake”; Purported attack location identified; Federal charges “certain”

Monday, February 18, 2019

… Meanwhile, the FBI and the U.S. Postal Inspection Service has been quietly working on the origins of Smollett’s letter for nearly a month. Giving it far more “attention” than he knew.

Late Monday, CWBChicago received confirmation that the letter case has been before a federal grand jury and multiple subpoenas have been generated over the course of the investigation.

In a conversation on Feb. 8th, before police met with brothers Ola and Abel Osundairo, a leading source within the Smollett attack investigation called the hate crime a “false flag” and said “There is a direct line between (the letter) and (the purported attack).” In the same conversation, the source hinted at what was to come: “This is not a whodunit. It’s a how-many-people-dunit.”

Federal charges against whoever mailed the letter were, they said, “certain.” Whoever sent the letter, we were told, “made an enormous mistake.”

A law firm partner who asked not to be identified by name spoke with us about the federal problems ahead for whoever mailed the letter: “If they have Smollett on the letter, he’ll be facing ’terroristic hoax’ charges, a felony. There may be federal obstruction charges as well.”

All in all, the federal legal options are numerous: “If they want to bury him, they can.”

    Sorry, not true. Being black and gay buys you some immunity but not an infinite amount. Maybe if Jussie had skipped out on a restaurant check then he could have played his black & gay card and gotten off. But "terroristic hoax" is a Federal felony. You don't just walk away from that. Will they put him in Supermax for 99 years without parole they way they would have if he was some MAGA guy? No, but he's going to do time for this.

    Sharpton and co are throwing him under the bus the gays and women will too because its going to degrade victims coming forward and the press though knowing all along this was fake are now going to pretend they didnt and are outraged someone could so cleverly fool them

    That said how many done it is the question, there was no reason to bring in the nigerians as steves pointed out if he planned this hes an idiot and something went wrong. because lone wolf is most secure so accomplices had to be needed for something that didn't happen the way it played out unless he actually thought catching them nearby with hats would be enough but they were obviously not white guys. the letter shows the same narrative he told another person holding a noose so he could have done it all himself and been more secure yet instead involved the nigerians and his manager. They must have thought the nigerians would physically corroborate the narrative but they did not no one ever really bought that those two on cam were the ones who did it which is why he went on tv to say he was sure they were. Maybe he realized with all the cameras around he had to be sure there was at least a possibility of a culprit on cam in the vicinity on a frigid night chosen to avoid outside interference. So just incredibly bad casting and costumes?

    Wow. At the bottom of that CWBChicago post, they casually throw off the fact that they have an eyewitness to the Polar Vortex threesome. She saw three guys at a time within ten minutes of the incident, but in a slightly different place. CWBChicago did a public records request and got the original police reports that showed that the media had been reporting the location of the incident incorrectly until now.

    The eyewitness has not gone to the cops because she was smoking pot on her balcony. But now she is pinned down in CWBChicago’s post as in a high-rise overlooking the crime scene, 30-years old, helped friends move that night … somehow I think that is enough for the cops to ID her. And I’m sure they are willing to overlook the pot.

  9. I learned something about the striking decline of the news from this.

    1. The staid New York Times sent a “culture correspondent” comedian to cover a lynching hate crime. Not exactly Charles Portis covering the civil rights movement.

    2. I was surprised at how many in the press didn’t read between the lines when the police used an obvious, ham-fisted ruse to trap Jussie: “We just want to talk to the perp … er, I mean victim one more time…” Of course the press were hoping for the best, but this group that despises police and declares them untrustworthy were believing Law and Order level nonsense. To be skeptical is a good trait when applied equally; when applied only in your cause is simply partisanship. From the newspaper.

    This tweet reminds me of how the feds supposedly caught the Silk Road dark web drug sales site kingpin. They found a post on a tech forum asking how to set up Tor Hidden Services, although there was speculation that this story was so-called parallel construction, i.e. the FBI making up a fake origin story to hide the fact that the NSA slipped them some domestic spying data. The tech forum question did exist, but nobody believed that the FBI put in enough work to find it.

  11. I’m not a lawyer, but if he gets indicted in the next month or two, that would put a trial right around the time of the dem primaries, which would be very bad for the dems.

    My guess would be the powers that be get to him, he cops some kind of ‘mental anguish’ plea, gets a relative slap on the wrist, out of the spotlight for a while, but comes back in 18 months after the election, isn’t on the track to be a star, but still has a mid to high six figure income for the foreseeable future.

  12. The day of the alleged attack Jussie Smollett auditioned for a Broadway play in New York about a gay biracial victim of racial and homophobic harassment.

    How is this real?

    In the hours before the violent Jan. 29 assault in Chicago, the “Empire” star was in New York City for a day of readings for a possible revival of “Take Me Out,” sources told the Daily Mail.

    The Tony-winning production follows a biracial baseball player who is attacked by a pitcher — and called a “n—-r” and “f—-t” — after coming out. The characters compete on a team called the New York Empires.

    US Postal Inspectors, especially in the heavily black big cities like Chicago are over loaded with black often female inspectors. Like all black government workers, they hate Whites.

    The FBI isn’t as black as some federal agencies but the only Whites who make it through the recruitment process have proved themselves to be anti White SJWs.

    So, a black crime investigated by the black postal inspectors it’s a good bet no clear evidence will be found.

    The FBI and postal inspectors were, what?, 9 days into the investigation before the "lynching," and a full two weeks before the lynching story fell apart, so the core of the investigation had already been done ... no chance to soft pedal it. Also, three agencies are working together, including the CPD, which found the magazine on the birdcage at the Nigerians, so there would have to be a triple cross-agency conspiracy to bury this. CPD, especially, wants to bury the guy.

    It could be fun watching them each try to throw the other under the bus for the letter after all the nice words in their public statements about each other.

    Any idea on how actually performing the act (making and sending the letter) compares to soliciting the act in this case?

    A couple of thoughts.

    1. Do you think the Times editor who came up with the idea to assign an entertainment beat reporter to the story to trivialize it, rather than a crime beat reporter, is having second thoughts, or more importantly, is the editor’s boss pissed off at him, now that the story is exploding into a major crime and terrorism story in which small websites are scooping the Times?

    2. I’m having second thoughts myself about whether this story will finally open people’s eyes to hate hoaxes. Initially it was heading in that direction, but now it is so much bigger than the typical hate hoax that it has crossed into a new category, and I don’t think people will think “Smollett” when the next string noose shows up on a college campus.

    Easier said than done.

    if Trump ultimately follows through on his threats, the impact on the Russia probe would be negligible. “If he strips Bruce Ohr of his clearance and he can no longer work on an investigation, then the next person in line steps in. The Department of Justice is a Hydra. The entire government bureaucracy is not about individuals; they do not make or break an investigation. There is always someone that then steps into those shoes and continues it. I think the firing of James Comey is the ultimate example of that,” Asha Rangappa, a former F.B.I. counter-intelligence agent, explained. “[Trump] is going to keep trying to cut off these heads. It is one thing to do it for former officials who really don’t have any ongoing involvement, but for an active investigation . . . He doesn’t seem to understand that the wheels of justice are turning, and that even as the president of the United States, there is very little that he can do to stop it.”

    Firing civil servants is a lengthy arduous process and it must be for something they’ve done that’s dead absolutely wrong. It’s the head of the FBI that’s ordered the upper level supervisors to find evidence of Russian collusion.

    Firing black gay Asian Hispanic female federal employees is even more difficult.

    Many of Trumps executive orders have been overturned by just one liberal judge. Any federal employer actually fired by Trump after a lengthy process would file a lawsuit that day and Trump
    Would be ordered by a liberal judge to reinstate the employee within a week.

    US Postal Inspectors, especially in the heavily black big cities like Chicago are over loaded with black often female inspectors. Like all black government workers, they hate Whites.

    So I wonder if the black inspectors will really investigate enough to find enough evidence to charge Smollett or the brothers.

    The FBI isn’t as black as some federal agencies but the only Whites who make it through the recruitment process have proved themselves to be anti White SJWs.

    So, a black crime investigated by the black postal inspectors it’s a good bet no clear evidence will be found.

    a brief review of the federal sentencing guidelines suggests you are probably wrong. Under the section relating to hoaxes the base offense level is 12, which goes to 10 if he accepts responsibility. That gives a guideline range of 10, which, with no prior criminal history, puts him in criminal history category I, which yields a sentencing range of 6-12 months.

    while a probated sentence is not unheard of for such a range, the alien smugglers I represent usually do not get probation unless they are female and have minor children

    I guess he could argue he is female but the kids bit might be a hurdle too high.
  47. I think the youth would benefit from a bit of recovered history.

    Morton Downey Jr, who in that pre internet age was considered famous, most likely faked an attack by neo nazis, April 1989. In a world without ubiquitous video cameras, it was impossible to tell for sure. The world was about 2 years from the prelude to the forever war, Iraq I, which never really stopped. The PC jr had died at birth while the Commodore Amiga + Video Toaster had just been introduced. The Digital Equipment Corp was still thought to be the future industry leader. Wang Labs was considered a contender. A couple of years earlier Space Shuttle whatever it was blew up.

    But I digress,

    In late April 1989, he was involved in an incident in a San Francisco International Airport restroom in which he claimed to have been attacked by neo-Nazis who painted a swastika on his face and attempted to shave his head.[20] Some inconsistencies in Downey’s account (e.g., the swastika was painted in reverse, suggesting that Downey had drawn it himself in a mirror), and the failure of the police to find supportive evidence,[21] led many to suspect the incident was a hoax and a ploy for attention.[7][22] In July 1989, his show was canceled, with the owners of the show announcing that the last episode had been taped on June 30, and that no new shows would air after September 15, 1989.[23]

    I learned something about the striking decline of the news from this.

    1. The staid New York Times sent a “culture correspondent” comedian to cover a lynching hate crime. Not exactly Charles Portis covering the civil rights movement.

    2. I was surprised at how many in the press didn’t read between the lines when the police used an obvious, ham-fisted ruse to trap Jussie: “We just want to talk to the perp ... er, I mean victim one more time...” Of course the press were hoping for the best, but this group that despises police and declares them untrustworthy were believing Law and Order level nonsense.

    Monumental blunder. High end printers leave "watermarks" and the ones at the library are well known. You also have to sign in to use them, and the library probably has surveillance.

    Buy an old printer at a garage sale, print what you need, then immediately dispose of the printer. Be sure to buy the cheapest printer paper, (i.e. the most common) and then dispose of the unused paper. It can be identified by tool marks left during manufacture.

    I’m An Asian Woman Engaged To A White Man And, Honestly, I’m Struggling With That
    Tria Chang

    “Oh, God, another Asian girl/white boy couple,” I groan, dropping my fiancé’s hand.

    He hates it when I do this. So do I, really. I know it’s unkind and self-loathing, but every time I see another couple of our racial makeup, a little part of me sinks. We live in San Francisco, so this dip is as common as the hills. In these moments, I wish we were anything else ― that he were my gay best friend or we were startup co-founders, that he were Asian and I were white, that we were exquisitely ambiguous races, or that I could sink like my feelings into the sidewalk, be a little worm, and date whomever I want without considering social perception.

    Shame is neither the wisest nor most mature part of oneself, but it still has a voice. “Stop it you guys!” my shame wants to say to these other couples. “Can’t you see the more of us there are, the worse it looks?”

    “It” meaning the prevalent trend of Asian women seeming to end up with white men. “It” meaning the perpetuation of Asian fetish.


    I rolled my eyes at the luxury white men have to not think about race in their daily lives. I, on the other hand, started obsessing over it.

    I’m not arguing with the woman’s feelings. Somebody once told me about a friend of his at UCSD going on a valentine’s day dinner with his girlfriend, whatever it was about this restaurant it was popular with post-grad researchers there. His friend and date were mortified to find nearly all the other couples there being white men with Asian women and promptly left.

    What is fascinating is that you could write a ‘woke’ piece with that headline. Though it appears the much more real fetishisation (A lot of men may just be responding to height difference or broad behavioural and neotenic cues whereas the fetishisation for Northern European women appears almost completely sexual with significant shades of contempt) of Northern European women and the very real sexual assaults it seems to induce.

    Predictably some of the only MSM works on the subject have been from brown SJWs immune to charges of racism.

    Trump is allowing it for optics’ sake. He could have fired the lot of them. He should have done, right after inauguration, just ripped the bandaid off.

    I don’t think the crimes committed rise to the level where they can overwhelm the political cover. If JS is found guilty, then hate hoaxes exist and we can’t allow that just yet. So, look for “He’s still a victim of the overwhelming white-hetero bias against LGBT-POC.”

    I wonder if there isn’t an undercurrent going on the the Mind of the Deep State that says the blacks_as_equals experiement failed, now what to do next? One solution would be to give them enough rope to hang themselves. (unintentional pun) It’s all so well timed, the universal (almost, someday, hoping) disgust at Black Privilege and the fact that all they have done with it is to slump further and demand more.

    Sounds like a stereotype? Stereotypes come about b/c they’re useful.

    With the impending dollar crisis (my opinion, fueled by the bizarre attempt to control/steal Venezuelan oil now that Syria and Iraq are likely to become unavailable sources), look for tough times. In tough times, the privilaged class, blacks gets first choice of government handouts, including jobs.

    That said how many done it is the question, there was no reason to bring in the nigerians as steves pointed out if he planned this hes an idiot and something went wrong. because lone wolf is most secure so accomplices had to be needed for something that didn’t happen the way it played out unless he actually thought catching them nearby with hats would be enough but they were obviously not white guys. the letter shows the same narrative he told another person holding a noose so he could have done it all himself and been more secure yet instead involved the nigerians and his manager. They must have thought the nigerians would physically corroborate the narrative but they did not no one ever really bought that those two on cam were the ones who did it which is why he went on tv to say he was sure they were. Maybe he realized with all the cameras around he had to be sure there was at least a possibility of a culprit on cam in the vicinity on a frigid night chosen to avoid outside interference.

    PS: The Crook County States Attorney Kimesha Foxx, is black and has a reported preference for letting blacks skate on crimes. The IL state attorney general now is also "Kwame" Raoul, it takes no special talent to guess his race. What we're watching is a state-official level of "don't call the cops if you're raped by a brother, we have too many brothers in jail already" sentiment. If Smollett is guilty of filing a false police report, he'd NEVER be charged in Cook County or in Illinois, but Crimesha Foxx doesn't control who gets charged in Federal Court.

    I agree that the federal government must prosecute this. Leftist politics now trumps equality under the law. Whites have been prosecuted for far less. Consider the difference between prosecution of antifa and white protesters, or even supporters of Trump.

    Useful now to consider if Smollett was white and had employed the bros. to stage a racist attack on him because he hated the president, say Obama, and wanted to inflame public opinion against all who support him. If a white man had staged a racial hoax against blacks, the media would be incendiary now. There is no question that he would be prosecuted and no leniency would be given.

    The laws against illegal immigration, the laws for removing same, the laws around citizenship and taxation, the laws that those in office must obey the law . . . lots of laws have not been enforced. Now those harmed by that lack of enforcement are on defense instead of those whose actions have been illegal.

    Prosecuting Smollett is a necessary first step. Then start prosecuting those harming their fellow citizens by their refusal to live under the same laws that we do.

    The FBI isn’t as black as some federal agencies but the only Whites who make it through the recruitment process have proved themselves to be anti White SJWs.

Dozens if not hundreds have been involved and the work is much more pleasant and interesting than the ordinary. They are well aware of the politics of the situation and are mostly unhappy with it, whether white, black or brown. So my bet/hope is that the delay is due to their plan to build a case so airtight and damning that a refusal by the prosecutors to seriously pursue serious charges would not survive the leaking of evidence that would inevitably follow that refusal.

    My guess is he'd get a "low" rather than "minimum" designation, but I don't really know for sure. Just seems that a threat to poison via USPS would rank as a rather severe crime.

    Non violent first time offender who didn’t steal anything defraud of money or anything valuable but just made a false police report, even I would have recommended 3 months probation if he was convicted of making a false police report which is as rare as a solar eclipse.

    Smollett did no harm to anyone other than his employer which chose to hire bodyguards.

    As for the extensive media coverage, Smollett has nothing to do with that. The media blew the non incident up as they always do when a black or Jew reports a hate crime hoax. Graffiti in a European Jewish cemetery gets front page coverage in American newspapers 5,000 miles away. Statue in front of a Catholic Church gets defaced it’s not even covered in local news.

    Chicago has a very serious problem of black thugs robbing and beating White men including many gays who are out and about at night. The gay bar & club north side of Chicago is well known for this. There were probably at least 10 gay White men robbed and beaten the night of January 29th. But not even local news reported it because the suspect were black.


    Smollett made a false police report, a petty insignificant minor crime. Due to the usual dysfunction of the black postal inspectors the makers and mailers of the threatening letter will never be found unless someone confessed.

    Smollett’s not to blame for the massive coverage. The anti White government at all levels and the anti White media is to blame.

    Whites who reported robbery and beatings that day didn’t get media coverage. The reports were passed on to detectives who will do nothing, probably not even make a follow up call to the victim.

    What Smollett did isn’t an offense that gets prison time.

    Given that there is more than enough evidence to arrest this guy and he is not under arrest, the odds of him being charged drop every day. This is a good example of how the CivNats just can't come to terms with the new normal. Those rules they think are important are not really all that important, at least not to the people in charge. Rules are for dirt people, not cloud people.

    The most likely outcome is the Feds drop the whole thing and the Chicago PD charges him with making false statements to the police. In six months the whole thing is broomed and we'll be onto the next hoax. Smollett will be tossed off the back of the sleigh like the Kavanaugh accusers, never to be heard from again.

    This is just not true. Patience, patience. Prosecutors often delay making arrests for various reasons. The statute of limitations isn't up for years - they can arrest him at any time, no rush. Up until recently he was still pretending to be the "victim" and "cooperating" with the authorities (meaning digging his own hole deeper). Once he is arrested, that all comes to an end.

    I realize people here have good reason to be skeptical about our system of justice but Jussie has really stepped in it. He has made the Left look bad and they are going to throw him under the bus. People like Kamala Harris and Nancy Pelosi don't like being played for fools. And he doesn't have any friends in the MAGA crowd he tried to blood libel either. So he is going to be a very lonely guy pretty soon.

    Pretty much agree with you, but I think

    People like Kamala Harris and Nancy Pelosi don’t like being played for fools.

On the other hand, they know that there is absolutely *zero* risk to promoting the story, even though they know it’s most likely fake. Worst case scenario is someone actually calls them out on it in a context in which they have to respond (serious interview or debate), and then they can just say they were following the best available information at the time. Much more likely is that they simply never have to address it again, ever.

There are plenty of other videos of murderers giving their impressions of grief . These people’s fake grief gives off a stink . You can even tell listening to the 911 calls . This guy was a poor actor , his inner “life” is all superficial he had no experience of any real emotion to draw from so he imitated how he imagined a person in his situation would react and appear . No wonder he was going to be fired . Some years ago an English channel did an episode on this subject (can’t find the link) comparing the the fake grief of murderers to innocent people in the same situation . The people who had truly suffered a loss reacted in different ways , the guilty mostly all reacted in a similar way . You can’t reproduce an emotion you’ve never had you can only imitate others reaction. Tell me in real life when you meet a bad actor isn’t there a brief subtle moment ? Well maybe I’m wrong , it’s happened . But that’s all beside the point in this case , he’s half Negro and half Jew , are his lips moving ? he’s lying .

    Thanks for the link. So the father, like a lot of Russian Jews got out and landed in the San Francisco Bay Area. He then plunged into radical activism and met black radical activist wife. They associated with Huey Newton wife is best friends with Angela Davis

    The kids all have weird J names; Jurnee, Jazz. Those pretty girls were put to work as models as babies and actors as toddlers. There’s nothing about any jobs the parents had but pimping out the kids as child actors.

    I wondered what the father did to support 6 kids plus sending them to catholic school. Now I know he lived off the kids.

    San Francisco wasn’t just a hippy dippy counter culture playground when the parents worked with Davis, Newton and black panthers. Bill Ayers and Bernadette Dohrn hid out in San Francisco after a murder. They both worked for a do gooder federal agency under false names and Dohrn bombed Park Poluce Station and killed a cop.

    The Smollett wife being a radical black activist is reasonable. She’s a black American. But a Russian Jewish so called refugee leaves Russia and goes directly to the black radical activist mileu of the Bay Area is verrry interesting. I thought it was all normal at the time, just San Francisco being San Francisco. But looking back, I’m surprised they didn’t succeed in a real revolution.

    The FBI isn’t as black as some federal agencies but the only Whites who make it through the recruitment process have proved themselves to be anti White SJWs.

    a brief review of the federal sentencing guidelines suggests you are probably wrong. Under the section relating to hoaxes the base offense level is 12, which goes to 10 if he accepts responsibility. That gives a guideline range of 10, which, with no prior criminal history, puts him in criminal history category I, which yields a sentencing range of 6-12 months.

    while a probated sentence is not unheard of for such a range, the alien smugglers I represent usually do not get probation unless they are female and have minor children

It would be much easier to sweep this under the rug if it was a purely local operation but now that the Law Enforcement teams are competing with each other, they cannot control leaks or and rogue cops who disobey orders and spill the beans.

    One reason there is a buzz about Harris is that some people are hoping for an Obama 2.0 type coalition within the party. It worked twice already. He monopolized the black vote particularly in certain key states and then got enough of the remainder of the party to win the nomination. They tried to do something similar with Hillary except she ran as a woman and almost pulled it off.

    The interesting thing to watch will be to see how the electorate has changed post Obama. Will there be a stronger reaction among whites who rolled over.

    It's so nice to know that we have guys like you on our side, staid and faithful and solid until the end. You're the rock of the reaction, you really are.

    It's no wonder you need to read Heartiste in order to get laid. Go study up about the Real Science!™ of evolutionary psychology and learn how to impress women with your little dinkies.

    Well done! You completely demolished their point, refuting it graciously, while not attacking their persons and staying strictly on topic. It’s also noble of you to enlighten us with your argumentative powers in between your many dates with gorgeous men/women. Thank you, Mr./Mrs./Ms. Intelligent Dasein!

    Anyway, doesn’t that ”terroristic hoax” stuff apply when someone threatens others (even though the threats are empty, thus making it a hoax)? Or it’s expansive enough to cover instances in which someone says they were falsely threatened?

    I’m An Asian Woman Engaged To A White Man And, Honestly, I’m Struggling With That
    Tria Chang


    “Oh, God, another Asian girl/white boy couple,” I groan, dropping my fiancé’s hand.

    He hates it when I do this. So do I, really. I know it’s unkind and self-loathing, but every time I see another couple of our racial makeup, a little part of me sinks. We live in San Francisco, so this dip is as common as the hills. In these moments, I wish we were anything else ― that he were my gay best friend or we were startup co-founders, that he were Asian and I were white, that we were exquisitely ambiguous races, or that I could sink like my feelings into the sidewalk, be a little worm, and date whomever I want without considering social perception.

    Shame is neither the wisest nor most mature part of oneself, but it still has a voice. “Stop it you guys!” my shame wants to say to these other couples. “Can’t you see the more of us there are, the worse it looks?”

    “It” meaning the prevalent trend of Asian women seeming to end up with white men. “It” meaning the perpetuation of Asian fetish.

    ...
    I rolled my eyes at the luxury white men have to not think about race in their daily lives. I, on the other hand, started obsessing over it.

     

    I'm not arguing with the woman's feelings. Somebody once told me about a friend of his at UCSD going on a valentine's day dinner with his girlfriend, whatever it was about this restaurant it was popular with post-grad researchers there. His friend and date were mortified to find nearly all the other couples there being white men with Asian women and promptly left.

    What is fascinating is that you could write a 'woke' piece with that headline. Though it appears the much more real fetishisation (A lot of men may just be responding to height difference or broad behavioural and neotenic cues whereas the fetishisation for Northern European women appears almost completely sexual with significant shades of contempt) of Northern European women and the very real sexual assaults it seems to induce.

    Predictably some of the only MSM works on the subject have been from brown SJWs immune to charges of racism.
    https://www.theguardian.com/commentisfree/2010/nov/10/arab-myth-of-western-women
    Of course the same author also produced this.
    https://www.theguardian.com/commentisfree/2010/oct/30/arab-men-west-myth

    Interestingly despite being supposed mirror articles on the same subject, 'The Arab myth of Western women' has been put in the 'Middle East and North Africa' category but 'The western myth of Arab men' is in the 'Race' category.

    That Tria Chang piece seems like a real good reason for her fiancé to break off the engagement.

    Given that there is more than enough evidence to arrest this guy and he is not under arrest, the odds of him being charged drop every day. This is a good example of how the CivNats just can't come to terms with the new normal. Those rules they think are important are not really all that important, at least not to the people in charge. Rules are for dirt people, not cloud people.

    The most likely outcome is the Feds drop the whole thing and the Chicago PD charges him with making false statements to the police. In six months the whole thing is broomed and we'll be onto the next hoax. Smollett will be tossed off the back of the sleigh like the Kavanaugh accusers, never to be heard from again.

    If the Federal government does not choose to indict him on this white-powder hoax, then a petition should be signed by citizens for the federal government to reconsider its action.

    Many other people have been arrested and have gotten long prison terms for this type of white-powder hoax.

    I agree that the federal government must prosecute this. Leftist politics now trumps equality under the law. Whites have been prosecuted for far less. Consider the difference between prosecution of antifa and white protesters, or even supporters of Trump.

    Useful now to consider if Smollett was white and had employed the bros. to stage a racist attack on him because he hated the president, say Obama, and wanted to inflame public opinion against all who support him. If a white man had staged a racial hoax against blacks, the media would be incendiary now. There is no question that he would be prosecuted and no leniency would be given.

    The laws against illegal immigration, the laws for removing same, the laws around citizenship and taxation, the laws that those in office must obey the law . . . lots of laws have not been enforced. Now those harmed by that lack of enforcement are on defense instead of those whose actions have been illegal.

    Prosecuting Smollett is a necessary first step. Then start prosecuting those harming their fellow citizens by their refusal to live under the same laws that we do.

    That is pretty much Victor Davis Hanson's point about trying to operate the Central California farm that has been in his family for generations while keeping his day job writing scholarly books and articles about the ancient Greeks fighting with each other.

    The pro-immigrant protesters carry signs "no human being is illegal", which is true enough as-is, especially because they tell me that simply crossing the border while no one is looking does not constitute a crime although reentering after having been deported can be.

    On the other hand, for an immigrant-without-the-right-visa to function in our modern society, even within the shadows, they need a Social Security number and a driver's license, and obtaining those items can involve some combination of forgery along with identity theft, the latter being far from a victimless crime.

    You could take this as a white person's whinging and whining, but Professor Hanson complains that if he violates some obscure environmental regulation on his farm, the law comes down on him like a ton of bricks whereas of an "undocumented" neighbor has a dog without the mandated license and proof of rabies vaccination, lets the dog roam, the dog bites the Professor Hanson on his own property, who then has to get the full series of human rabies shots, this is to the authorities No Big Deal.

    Illegal immigration wouldn't be half the problem it is if just plain regular laws were enforced, but the good professor claims that the State of California is so overwhelmed that it just can't enforce the laws against keeping an unvaccinated dog. And trespassing on his property to dump really rough, icky, used-diaper-laden garbage on his property. And steal the copper wire from his deep-bore well pump to irrigate his crops.

    “I’ve always thought the best thing to do would be to write it up on the public library (distant from your home) computer, then print it out on their printer.”

    Monumental blunder. High end printers leave “watermarks” and the ones at the library are well known. You also have to sign in to use them, and the library probably has surveillance.

    Buy an old printer at a garage sale, print what you need, then immediately dispose of the printer. Be sure to buy the cheapest printer paper, (i.e. the most common) and then dispose of the unused paper. It can be identified by tool marks left during manufacture.

    Actually, it appears only color laser printers have such capability. They will have the serial number, but I don't think it's necessarily easy for anybody to track where a printer with a specific serial number wound up.

    That said, I believe all printers have slight individual anomalies. However, some of these change over time, so their use for identification may have a window of opportunity.

    To be sure, a disposable printer, like a burner phone, is always a good idea.

    I think the youth would benefit from a bit of recovered history.

    Morton Downey Jr, who in that pre internet age was considered famous, most likely faked an attack by neo nazis, April 1989. In a world without ubiquitous video cameras, it was impossible to tell for sure. The world was about 2 years from the prelude to the forever war, Iraq I, which never really stopped. The PC jr had died at birth while the Commodore Amiga + Video Toaster had just been introduced. The Digital Equipment Corp was still thought to be the future industry leader. Wang Labs was considered a contender. A couple of years earlier Space Shuttle whatever it was blew up.

    But I digress,

    In late April 1989, he was involved in an incident in a San Francisco International Airport restroom in which he claimed to have been attacked by neo-Nazis who painted a swastika on his face and attempted to shave his head.[20] Some inconsistencies in Downey's account (e.g., the swastika was painted in reverse, suggesting that Downey had drawn it himself in a mirror), and the failure of the police to find supportive evidence,[21] led many to suspect the incident was a hoax and a ploy for attention.[7][22] In July 1989, his show was canceled, with the owners of the show announcing that the last episode had been taped on June 30, and that no new shows would air after September 15, 1989.[23]

    US Postal Inspectors, especially in the heavily black big cities like Chicago are over loaded with black often female inspectors. Like all black government workers, they hate Whites.

    The FBI isn’t as black as some federal agencies but the only Whites who make it through the recruitment process have proved themselves to be anti White SJWs.

    So, a black crime investigated by the black postal inspectors it’s a good bet no clear evidence will be found.

    Man, Ed. That's a bit hyperbolic, don't you think? If you don't think black officials would ever act with extreme bias in favor of fellow blacks, you must have forgotten about Obama, Holder, and many many more.

    "The New Black Panther Party voter intimidation case is a political controversy in the United States concerning an incident that occurred during the 2008 election. The New Black Panther Party and two of its members, Minister King Samir Shabazz and Jerry Jackson, were charged with voter intimidation for their conduct outside a polling station in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania.

    The Department of Justice later narrowed the charges against Minister King Shabazz and dismissed the charges against the New Black Panther Party and Jerry Jackson. The decision to dismiss the charges led to accusations that the Department of Justice under the Obama administration was biased against white victims and unwilling to prosecute minorities for civil rights violations."

    Black postal inspectors won’t risk their jobs by not investigating Smollett. Firing government employees is a long and arduous process even when the employee has done egregiously wrong things done no work at all for months embezzled etc.

    Black government employees can’t be fired or disciplined for any reason. I realize it’s hard for one whose spent his career in the private sector to realize how government employees can get away with a 40 year history of bad performance and unfitness

    Postal inspectors are investigators. Investigators can’t be fired if they don’t find who write and mailed the letter It’s accepted that some incidents will never be solved. Investigation isn’t like replacing tires. Sometimes there just isn’t any evidence.

    Sgt., This is classic because in my mind she didn't write the Tweet in question, probably a staffer and she is dumbfounded. In a debate she will need the questions before hand but we have been there.

    One reason there is a buzz about Harris is that some people are hoping for an Obama 2.0 type coalition within the party. It worked twice already. He monopolized the black vote particularly in certain key states and then got enough of the remainder of the party to win the nomination. They tried to do something similar with Hillary except she ran as a woman and almost pulled it off.

    The interesting thing to watch will be to see how the electorate has changed post Obama. Will there be a stronger reaction among whites who rolled over. Also, how will Asians and Hispanics feel about their diminished status within the party and their need to run a black for President every election.

    Buy an old printer at a garage sale, print what you need, then immediately dispose of the printer. Be sure to buy the cheapest printer paper, (i.e. the most common) and then dispose of the unused paper. It can be identified by tool marks left during manufacture.

    On the old HP and Apple (canon engine) laser printers this could be found in the firmware by pulling the ROMS, dumping them via a burner, and searching for the serial number string.

    Given that there is more than enough evidence to arrest this guy and he is not under arrest, the odds of him being charged drop every day.
     
    This is just not true. Patience, patience. Prosecutors often delay making arrests for various reasons. The statute of limitations isn't up for years - they can arrest him at any time, no rush. Up until recently he was still pretending to be the "victim" and "cooperating" with the authorities (meaning digging his own hole deeper). Once he is arrested, that all comes to an end.

    I realize people here have good reason to be skeptical about our system of justice but Jussie has really stepped in it. He has made the Left look bad and they are going to throw him under the bus. People like Kamala Harris and Nancy Pelosi don't like being played for fools. And he doesn't have any friends in the MAGA crowd he tried to blood libel either. So he is going to be a very lonely guy pretty soon.

    If our justice system were not so totally screwed up I would tend to believe you. However, watching how Mueller has gotten away with investigating the wrong group of people the last two years when the perps are clearly on the Democratic side makes me doubt Jussie will suffer.

He’s woke, black and gay so he’s actually a three-fer and similar to how antifa is allowed to plead all of their serious crimes/felonies down to jaywalking, I have a hard time believing that woke/SJW FBI agents will actually pursue Smollett. Or if they do they’ll just go through the motions before opting not to formally pursue charges.

    When interviewed James Comey will say that after reviewing the case no federal prosecutor worth his salt would charge Smollett.

    At the end of the day I think they’ll be behind the scenes political pressure and well as some possible payoffs by Jewish billionaires to make this all go away.

    Given that there is more than enough evidence to arrest this guy and he is not under arrest, the odds of him being charged drop every day. This is a good example of how the CivNats just can't come to terms with the new normal. Those rules they think are important are not really all that important, at least not to the people in charge. Rules are for dirt people, not cloud people.

    The most likely outcome is the Feds drop the whole thing and the Chicago PD charges him with making false statements to the police. In six months the whole thing is broomed and we'll be onto the next hoax. Smollett will be tossed off the back of the sleigh like the Kavanaugh accusers, never to be heard from again.

    I think it’s important to bear in mind just how much fun the CPD is having with this. There is little they enjoy more than bringing down a wise guy. Dozens if not hundreds have been involved and the work is much more pleasant and interesting than the ordinary. They are well aware of the politics of the situation and are mostly unhappy with it, whether white, black or brown. So my bet/hope is that the delay is due to their plan to build a case so airtight and damning that a refusal by the prosecutors to seriously pursue serious charges would not survive the leaking of evidence that would inevitably follow that refusal.

    a brief review of the federal sentencing guidelines suggests you are probably wrong. Under the section relating to hoaxes the base offense level is 12, which goes to 10 if he accepts responsibility. That gives a guideline range of 10, which, with no prior criminal history, puts him in criminal history category I, which yields a sentencing range of 6-12 months.

    while a probated sentence is not unheard of for such a range, the alien smugglers I represent usually do not get probation unless they are female and have minor children

    I guess he could argue he is female but the kids bit might be a hurdle too high.

    So Trump literally fires everyone. Does he leave the DoJ empty or does he hire new people? If he leaves the DoJ empty then he takes even greater political heat and he can't prosecute any federal crimes. If he hires new people, then it would have to be people who can commute to the DoJ. Who lives in Washington DC? Three types of swamp dwellers...Clinton swampies, Bush swampies, Obama swampies.

    Does Trump have the constitutional power to force everyone in Washington DC to sell their home and relocate to the Midwest, while forcing a bunch of Midwest people to relocate to Washington DC so he can hire them?

    Let's say you are a Trump supporter who is qualified to work at DoJ. Would you be willing to relocate to Washington DC from wherever you live in exchange for 2-4 years(8 if you are lucky) of employment? Can you afford an overpriced Washington DC area home?

    That is pretty much Victor Davis Hanson's point about trying to operate the Central California farm that has been in his family for generations while keeping his day job writing scholarly books and articles about the ancient Greeks fighting with each other.

    The pro-immigrant protesters carry signs "no human being is illegal", which is true enough as-is, especially because they tell me that simply crossing the border while no one is looking does not constitute a crime although reentering after having been deported can be.

    On the other hand, for an immigrant-without-the-right-visa to function in our modern society, even within the shadows, they need a Social Security number and a driver's license, and obtaining those items can involve some combination of forgery along with identity theft, the latter being far from a victimless crime.

    You could take this as a white person's whinging and whining, but Professor Hanson complains that if he violates some obscure environmental regulation on his farm, the law comes down on him like a ton of bricks whereas of an "undocumented" neighbor has a dog without the mandated license and proof of rabies vaccination, lets the dog roam, the dog bites the Professor Hanson on his own property, who then has to get the full series of human rabies shots, this is to the authorities No Big Deal.

    Illegal immigration wouldn't be half the problem it is if just plain regular laws were enforced, but the good professor claims that the State of California is so overwhelmed that it just can't enforce the laws against keeping an unvaccinated dog. And trespassing on his property to dump really rough, icky, used-diaper-laden garbage on his property. And steal the copper wire from his deep-bore well pump to irrigate his crops. And running hit-and-run vehicular insurance scams. And so on.

    US Postal Inspectors, especially in the heavily black big cities like Chicago are over loaded with black often female inspectors. Like all black government workers, they hate Whites.

    So I wonder if the black inspectors will really investigate enough to find enough evidence to charge Smollett or the brothers.

    The FBI isn’t as black as some federal agencies but the only Whites who make it through the recruitment process have proved themselves to be anti White SJWs.

    So, a black crime investigated by the black postal inspectors it’s a good bet no clear evidence will be found.

    Looks like Smollett set the brothers up for the letter.

    The lazy useless black postal inspectors have had a month to find out who wrote that letter and have found nothing but the local post office postmark on the envelope. Par for the course for affirmative action government employees.

    Great investigation, they looked at the postmark. If you’d ever worked with blacks you’d know what they’re like, lazy, 3 hour lunches useless unable to read manuals, memos and emails lecherous men and women who spend their days intriguing fighting and having tantrums while the Whites tip toe around hoping not to offend the blacks and doing all the work. The women take days and days off work dealing with their son’s arrests, trials, bail hearings and parole problems.
    Plus, when dealing with White members of the public they’re supposed to serve they go out of their way to harm them and obstruct their access to services and when dealing with blacks go out of their way to help
    Then.
    There was a social security office in cook county (near Chicago) that obstructed social security benefits for everyone who applied. These were people who were 65 and had put into social security all their lives. But their benefits were delayed for years by these evil black women. Black DMV women are notorious for this kind of thing as well.

    There were decades when every single one of the postal inspectors in the Bay Area were black in counties and cities that had few blacks. It’s finally changed due to lawsuits by Hispanics and Asians but not Whites because the post office doesn’t want Whites but grudgingly has to employ them in all White rural counties

    All FBI recruits have to go through the interviews where they declare themselves SJWs. Remember, the SJW FBI has been investigating Trump for collusion with Russia since November 2016. Not a shred of evidence has been found but the SJW FBI will continue looking till Trump is dead.

    It's essentially a form of fraud that intends to utilize public resources for personal gain, so the victims are taxpayers and the general public. Smollett clearly wanted authorities involved so as to legtitimize his claims and make his victimhood official.

    One could also argue that by attempting to involve various agencies in his scheme, he could have compromised the integrity of these agencies, doing further harm to the public. Because he faked a very serious crime he raised the stakes a great deal, and his fraud became all the more serious.

    The FBI and postal inspectors were, what?, 9 days into the investigation before the "lynching," and a full two weeks before the lynching story fell apart, so the core of the investigation had already been done ... no chance to soft pedal it. Also, three agencies are working together, including the CPD, which found the magazine on the birdcage at the Nigerians, so there would have to be a triple cross-agency conspiracy to bury this. CPD, especially, wants to bury the guy.

    A month after the letter was mailed, the postal inspectors haven’t found out who mailed it or who drew the pictures who addressed it who pasted the threatening message or who licked the stamps.
    Absolutely nothing about the letter has been solved.

    The vast majority of Steve Sailer’s followers including Steve himself are extremely obsessed with Jussie Smollett’s Jewish ancestry even though Jussie Smollett does not care about his own Jewish ancestry which would explain why he did not say his fictional “attackers” referred to him as the K-Word, only the N-Word and the F-Word.

    Also at his Good Morning America interview he was rocking The Rainbow and BLM but not The Star Of David.

    Well, the first rule of fight club is, you don't talk about fight club. Jews tend to stay low key because what's the point of being a market-dominant, invisible minority if you go tipping your hand all the time? Plus it tends to make other Jews angry. Jews tend to keep that stuff in the in-group.

    You're Italian, right? You know what Omerta is. Does it mean mobsters don't think being a mobster is an important part of their identity?

    Jussie doesn't have to be particularly interested in his Jewishness to have received a leg up in a Jewish-dominated business because of it, btw. I mean, how many REAL BLACKS are there in America, but a half-Jewish one happens to turn up on one of the top "black" TV shows? And you think it's beyond the pale to suggest that maybe a half-Jew turning up in a Jew-dominated business is likely more than mere coincidence?

    C'mon, man.

    Then there's the fact that a person certainly need not be aware or proud of part of his ancestry for that part to make itself manifest. I'd submit that all of one's ancestry asserts itself, regardless.

    As for choosing to be a Jewish victim vs. a Black one, yes, obviously Blacks are a visible minority, and Jews are an invisible one, and in our society one is traded on loudly, and the other is traded on silently. This doesn't say a whole lot about which is more important to Jussie.

    , @Jack D
    I don't get the feeling that Jussie "identifies" as Jewish. As you know, who you "identify as" is very import to SJWs, even more important than objective reality such as half your DNA. Jussie attended a Catholic high school and I haven't seen any hints about Jewish affiliation in his mainstream media coverage. The only ones pointing out that Jussie is really a Joo (and of course according to Jewish law he isn't, not at all) and is enjoying or is going to enjoy all the secret Joo club membership benefits are the Usual Suspects.

    Nowadays, with the great sympathy for the Palestinian cause in Leftist circles, I get the feeling that for someone like Jussie it is better for his career NOT to be Jewish - that his black and gay friends would like him better if he WASN'T. And for someone with his antennas tuned to what sells among his fan base, I don't think he would have missed this. It's not an accident that Jussie has been promoted as "black and gay" and not as "black and gay and Jewish". And as far as I can tell, this isn't just Hollywood flim-flam - Jussie has no real connection to his Jewish side. It's not unusual for 1/2 black celebrities nowadays (Obama) to completely ignore or deny the white side of their families. Meghan Markle had her black mama at her royal wedding but pointedly not her white father.
    , @Svigor
    This is a totally dishonest comment, by the way. Not that I think you're really capable of honesty (takes a modicum of perspicacity, after all).

    No, the vast majority of Steve's "followers" (whatever the fuck those are) isn't "extremely obsessed" (warning, caved-in-head language; "obsession" is by definition "extreme" so the qualifier is redundant) with Smollet's Jewish ancestry. The majority has, annoyingly, ignored the fact. A minority (that doesn't include Steve, caved-in-head guy) has been, correctly, pointing out that he isn't just black and gay, he's also Jewish. He's as Jewish as he is black (the fact that you and Jack have to say "yeah but he doesn't care about his Jewishness" (citation needed) just shows that you have no answer to the fact that he's as Jewish as he is black).

    And again, you have no idea what Jussie cares about. Telepath, you ain't.

    I'll have to agree with posters that believe Smollett will eventually get off scot free. He's woke, black and gay so he's actually a three-fer and similar to how antifa is allowed to plead all of their serious crimes/felonies down to jaywalking, I have a hard time believing that woke/SJW FBI agents will actually pursue Smollett. Or if they do they'll just go through the motions before opting not to formally pursue charges.

    When interviewed James Comey will say that after reviewing the case no federal prosecutor worth his salt would charge Smollett.

    At the end of the day I think they'll be behind the scenes political pressure and well as some possible payoffs by Jewish billionaires to make this all go away. All the leading fake news people will be instantly struck with amnesia and the rest of the fake news media will flush it down the memory hole.

    I agree with you. Black Jewish gay fake hate crime he will never be prosecuted. The Chicago metro area post office is mostly black including the inspectors and they will never betray a brother. Even a Jew hating black Muslim postal inspector would protect jussie’s black half rather than finding evidence to charge his Jewish half.

    As a non-violent, first time offender, Smollett would probably get sent to a low security prison but the process that the Feds use is a sort of black box to the outside world and he could end up anywhere.

    Non violent first time offender who didn’t steal anything defraud of money or anything valuable but just made a false police report, even I would have recommended 3 months probation if he was convicted of making a false police report which is as rare as a solar eclipse.

    Smollett did no harm to anyone other than his employer which chose to hire bodyguards.

    As for the extensive media coverage, Smollett has nothing to do with that. The media blew the non incident up as they always do when a black or Jew reports a hate crime hoax. Graffiti in a European Jewish cemetery gets front page coverage in American newspapers 5,000 miles away. Statue in front of a Catholic Church gets defaced it’s not even covered in local news.

    Chicago has a very serious problem of black thugs robbing and beating White men including many gays who are out and about at night. The gay bar & club north side of Chicago is well known for this. There were probably at least 10 gay White men robbed and beaten the night of January 29th. But not even local news reported it because the suspect were black.

    Smollett made a false police report, a petty insignificant minor crime. Due to the usual dysfunction of the black postal inspectors the makers and mailers of the threatening letter will never be found unless someone confessed.

    Smollett’s not to blame for the massive coverage. The anti White government at all levels and the anti White media is to blame.

    Whites who reported robbery and beatings that day didn’t get media coverage. The reports were passed on to detectives who will do nothing, probably not even make a follow up call to the victim.

    What Smollett did isn’t an offense that gets prison time.

    Man, Ed. That's a bit hyperbolic, don't you think? If you don't think black officials would ever act with extreme bias in favor of fellow blacks, you must have forgotten about Obama, Holder, and many many more.

    "The New Black Panther Party voter intimidation case is a political controversy in the United States concerning an incident that occurred during the 2008 election. The New Black Panther Party and two of its members, Minister King Samir Shabazz and Jerry Jackson, were charged with voter intimidation for their conduct outside a polling station in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania.

    The Department of Justice later narrowed the charges against Minister King Shabazz and dismissed the charges against the New Black Panther Party and Jerry Jackson. The decision to dismiss the charges led to accusations that the Department of Justice under the Obama administration was biased against white victims and unwilling to prosecute minorities for civil rights violations."

    Given that there is more than enough evidence to arrest this guy and he is not under arrest, the odds of him being charged drop every day.
     
    This is just not true. Patience, patience. Prosecutors often delay making arrests for various reasons. The statute of limitations isn't up for years - they can arrest him at any time, no rush. Up until recently he was still pretending to be the "victim" and "cooperating" with the authorities (meaning digging his own hole deeper). Once he is arrested, that all comes to an end.

    I realize people here have good reason to be skeptical about our system of justice but Jussie has really stepped in it. He has made the Left look bad and they are going to throw him under the bus. People like Kamala Harris and Nancy Pelosi don't like being played for fools. And he doesn't have any friends in the MAGA crowd he tried to blood libel either. So he is going to be a very lonely guy pretty soon.

    You are an idiot. And that goes as well for Mr McKenna, Realist, South Texas Guy, and any other commenter who thinks that Jussie is going to skate away after pulling this stunt.

    Also: some gossip about Smollett and Kamala being pals.

    Anybody know anything about this? (given the cited story, not unlikely).

    Thanks for the link. So the father, like a lot of Russian Jews got out and landed in the San Francisco Bay Area. He then plunged into radical activism and met black radical activist wife. They associated with Huey Newton wife is best friends with Angela Davis

    The kids all have weird J names; Jurnee, Jazz. Those pretty girls were put to work as models as babies and actors as toddlers. There’s nothing about any jobs the parents had but pimping out the kids as child actors.

    I wondered what the father did to support 6 kids plus sending them to catholic school. Now I know he lived off the kids.

    San Francisco wasn’t just a hippy dippy counter culture playground when the parents worked with Davis, Newton and black panthers. Bill Ayers and Bernadette Dohrn hid out in San Francisco after a murder. They both worked for a do gooder federal agency under false names and Dohrn bombed Park Poluce Station and killed a cop.

    The Smollett wife being a radical black activist is reasonable. She’s a black American. But a Russian Jewish so called refugee leaves Russia and goes directly to the black radical activist mileu of the Bay Area is verrry interesting. I thought it was all normal at the time, just San Francisco being San Francisco. But looking back, I’m surprised they didn’t succeed in a real revolution.

    I think you are confusing when Smollett Sr.'s family came over. He is referred to as a "Russian Polish Jew". This usually refers to people whose ancestors came to the US from the Pale of Settlement (AKA Russian Poland) during the Czarist period/ the great Ellis Island wave. This is the most common ancestry for American Jews. Smollett Sr. is not a refugee, he is a born and bred American Leftist - probably a Red Diaper baby.

    Jews who personally came as refugees from the Soviet Union in the '70s and later are usually called "Soviet Jews" or "Russian Jews" but not Russian Polish.

    "Sailer" is a social-climber's version of "Seiler" (the German name for ropemaker) much like "Smythe" is a social-climber's revision of "Smith." The story I was told by my father is that the Sailers used to be Seilers until a Seiler became mayor of Wil, Switzerland, at which point he upgraded to the classier spelling Sailer.

    Funarius. Der Seiler. (The Rope Maker) / Panoplia omnium illiberalium mechanicarum … (Book of Trades)

    One of 133 woodcut book-illustrations, showing the interior of a rope maker’s workshop, on the right the rope maker, splicing a rope, on the left one man standing, in the background an open shop window with various ropes on display; from Hartmann Schopper, ‘Panoplia [Greek] Omnium illiberalium mechanicarum aut sedentariarum artium …’, (Frankfurt, Sigmund Feierabend, 1568), quire M4 with Latin and German title and Latin verses by Schopper in one column.

    The vast majority of Steve Sailer's followers including Steve himself are extremely obsessed with Jussie Smollett's Jewish ancestry even though Jussie Smollett does not care about his own Jewish ancestry which would explain why he did not say his fictional "attackers" referred to him as the K-Word, only the N-Word and the F-Word.

    Also at his Good Morning America interview he was rocking The Rainbow and BLM but not The Star Of David.

    Well, the first rule of fight club is, you don’t talk about fight club. Jews tend to stay low key because what’s the point of being a market-dominant, invisible minority if you go tipping your hand all the time? Plus it tends to make other Jews angry. Jews tend to keep that stuff in the in-group.

    You’re Italian, right? You know what Omerta is. Does it mean mobsters don’t think being a mobster is an important part of their identity?

    Jussie doesn’t have to be particularly interested in his Jewishness to have received a leg up in a Jewish-dominated business because of it, btw. I mean, how many REAL BLACKS are there in America, but a half-Jewish one happens to turn up on one of the top “black” TV shows? And you think it’s beyond the pale to suggest that maybe a half-Jew turning up in a Jew-dominated business is likely more than mere coincidence?

    C’mon, man.

    Then there’s the fact that a person certainly need not be aware or proud of part of his ancestry for that part to make itself manifest. I’d submit that all of one’s ancestry asserts itself, regardless.

    As for choosing to be a Jewish victim vs. a Black one, yes, obviously Blacks are a visible minority, and Jews are an invisible one, and in our society one is traded on loudly, and the other is traded on silently. This doesn’t say a whole lot about which is more important to Jussie.

    I don’t get the feeling that Jussie “identifies” as Jewish. As you know, who you “identify as” is very import to SJWs, even more important than objective reality such as half your DNA. Jussie attended a Catholic high school and I haven’t seen any hints about Jewish affiliation in his mainstream media coverage. The only ones pointing out that Jussie is really a Joo (and of course according to Jewish law he isn’t, not at all) and is enjoying or is going to enjoy all the secret Joo club membership benefits are the Usual Suspects.

    Nowadays, with the great sympathy for the Palestinian cause in Leftist circles, I get the feeling that for someone like Jussie it is better for his career NOT to be Jewish – that his black and gay friends would like him better if he WASN’T. And for someone with his antennas tuned to what sells among his fan base, I don’t think he would have missed this. It’s not an accident that Jussie has been promoted as “black and gay” and not as “black and gay and Jewish”. And as far as I can tell, this isn’t just Hollywood flim-flam – Jussie has no real connection to his Jewish side. It’s not unusual for 1/2 black celebrities nowadays (Obama) to completely ignore or deny the white side of their families.

    Firing civil servants is a lengthy arduous process and it must be for something they’ve done that’s dead absolutely wrong. It’s the head of the FBI that’s ordered the upper level supervisors to find evidence of Russian collusion.

    Firing black gay Asian Hispanic female federal employees is even more difficult.

    Would be ordered by a liberal judge to reinstate the employee within a week.

    This is wrong. The red tape protecting civil servants doesn’t apply to security services (FBI, CIA, etc.). PotUS can fire them all on a whim whenever he likes. This is because when those red tape laws were written, the security experts (top brass, congress, etc.) didn’t want them interfering with the prosecution of the Cold War.

    IIRC, Glenn Greenwald had a paragraph or two about this in one of his pieces at The Intercept, but I can’t remember which.

    Black postal inspectors won’t risk their jobs by not investigating Smollett. Firing government employees is a long and arduous process even when the employee has done egregiously wrong things done no work at all for months embezzled etc.

    Black government employees can’t be fired or disciplined for any reason. I realize it’s hard for one whose spent his career in the private sector to realize how government employees can get away with a 40 year history of bad performance and unfitness

    Postal inspectors are investigators. Investigators can’t be fired if they don’t find who write and mailed the letter It’s accepted that some incidents will never be solved. Investigation isn’t like replacing tires. Sometimes there just isn’t any evidence.

    A friend of mine works for the Feds. Her co-worker was a black woman who did almost nothing. Management tried to discipline her and she beat it by crying racism. They tried again and she screamed retaliation. She was so toxic that senior staff lawyers left just to get away from her.

    Let’s say you are a Trump supporter who is qualified to work at DoJ. Would you be willing to relocate to Washington DC from wherever you live in exchange for 2-4 years(8 if you are lucky) of employment? Can you afford an overpriced Washington DC area home?

  240. My experience with false accusations from women is that if they get caught, they will be swept under the rug by waiting until all the hub bub dies down and then quietly dismissing the charges. You see this all the time in the family courts where the soon to be ex-wife or “the child’s mother” lashes out with a false accusation only to have it blow up in her face. If the courts cannot ignore it completely they will string things along while putting not so subtle pressure on the man by holding custody and alimony over his head. It happens the other way around but far less frequently, usually by the man claiming drug use or child endangerment (often true) by the mother.

    I suspect that this is one reason Trump was so cool while going through all of these false accusations. He has been divorced 3 times and as the CEO of a large enterprise, has probably seen dozens of half -assed attempts to shake him or his close executives down for sexual and racial discrimination. The public is slowly becoming red-pilled by these hoaxes and Blasey-Ford type fake rape accusations which as painful as they are to watch, are probably a good thing for the country.

    Big picture time, just for a sec: the Trump Presidency has been the biggest red-pilling era in the history of the United States, and we're only 2 years in.

    Was thinking about this earlier today. I honestly don't believe that the left is going to win The Narrative on the Trump Era, in the long run. 1 There are just too many Americans who can see things relatively clearly, and 2 the left's behavior has just been way too psychotic. I think history is going to show just how dishonest the left has been revealed to be. It's going to take a relatively long time for the leftist narrative to fully collapse, but I think in the end their behavior is going to amount to the biggest own goal in political history.

He has been divorced 3 times and as the CEO of a large enterprise, has probably seen dozens of half -assed attempts to shake him or his close executives down for sexual and racial discrimination. The public is slowly becoming red-pilled by these hoaxes and Blasey-Ford type fake rape accusations which as painful as they are to watch, are probably a good thing for the country.

    Big picture time, just for a sec: the Trump Presidency has been the biggest red-pilling era in the history of the United States, and we’re only 2 years in.

    Was thinking about this earlier today. I honestly don’t believe that the left is going to win The Narrative on the Trump Era, in the long run. 1 There are just too many Americans who can see things relatively clearly, and 2 the left’s behavior has just been way too psychotic. I think history is going to show just how dishonest the left has been revealed to be. It’s going to take a relatively long time for the leftist narrative to fully collapse, but I think in the end their behavior is going to amount to the biggest own goal in political history.

    Does he have the constitutional power to relocate the capital of the United States to Indianapolis?
     
    I dunno. I doubt it.

    So Trump literally fires everyone. Does he leave the DoJ empty or does he hire new people?
     
    His business, I suppose. If he asked me, I'd say "hire new peeps, Don."

    If he leaves the DoJ empty then he takes even greater political heat and he can’t prosecute any federal crimes. If he hires new people, then it would have to be people who can commute to the DoJ. Who lives in Washington DC? Three types of swamp dwellers…Clinton swampies, Bush swampies, Obama swampies.
     
    Right, cuz 'Mericans can't move without showing their papers and the Swamp would definitely stop them at the checkpoints...

    Does Trump have the constitutional power to force everyone in Washington DC to sell their home and relocate to the Midwest, while forcing a bunch of Midwest people to relocate to Washington DC so he can hire them?
     
    No.

    Would you be willing to relocate to Washington DC from wherever you live in exchange for 2-4 years(8 if you are lucky) of employment?
     
    Sorry, you've hit the limit for stupid questions (3).

    P.S., where are all these unemployed swamp critters going to get the money to pay their mortgages? Just curious.

    I’ll just skip past the bit where you assumed there aren’t enough People of Wal-Mart (deep inhale) in the NOVA/MD area to staff a couple hundred federal bureaucracies.

    That's their problem. The problem of hiring MAGA people to work at the DoJ is where are they going to get the money to pay their mortgages after Trump leaves office?

    By all means, show me the counties in Northern Virginia and Maryland that are pro-Trump and are close enough to DC to commute. I am not an expert on those states' geography and voter preferences.

    "He’s not just black and gay, he has a third, special person identity-he’s half JEWISH."

    The vast majority of Steve Sailer's followers including Steve himself are extremely obsessed with Jussie Smollett's Jewish ancestry even though Jussie Smollett does not care about his own Jewish ancestry which would explain why he did not say his fictional "attackers" referred to him as the K-Word, only the N-Word and the F-Word.

    Also at his Good Morning America interview he was rocking The Rainbow and BLM but not The Star Of David.

    This is a totally dishonest comment, by the way. Not that I think you’re really capable of honesty (takes a modicum of perspicacity, after all).

    No, the vast majority of Steve’s “followers” (whatever the fuck those are) isn’t “extremely obsessed” (warning, caved-in-head language; “obsession” is by definition “extreme” so the qualifier is redundant) with Smollet’s Jewish ancestry. The majority has, annoyingly, ignored the fact. A minority (that doesn’t include Steve, caved-in-head guy) has been, correctly, pointing out that he isn’t just black and gay, he’s also Jewish. He’s as Jewish as he is black (the fact that you and Jack have to say “yeah but he doesn’t care about his Jewishness” (citation needed) just shows that you have no answer to the fact that he’s as Jewish as he is black).

    And again, you have no idea what Jussie cares about. Telepath, you ain’t.

    Easier said than done.

    Less than 10% of Washington DC voted for Trump, not many Trump supporters available to hire.

    Sorry, you’ve hit the limit for stupid questions

    Which means no you wouldn’t. Now you see why it takes Trump a couple of years to clear out the Deep State from the DoJ.

    "I’ve always thought the best thing to do would be to write it up on the public library (distant from your home) computer, then print it out on their printer."

    Monumental blunder. High end printers leave "watermarks" and the ones at the library are well known. You also have to sign in to use them, and the library probably has surveillance.

    Buy an old printer at a garage sale, print what you need, then immediately dispose of the printer. Be sure to buy the cheapest printer paper, (i.e. the most common) and then dispose of the unused paper. It can be identified by tool marks left during manufacture.

    You may want to watch a few crime shows before you launch your career. And don't hire any Nigerians.

    Actually, it appears only color laser printers have such capability. They will have the serial number, but I don’t think it’s necessarily easy for anybody to track where a printer with a specific serial number wound up.

    https://smallbusiness.chron.com/printers-leave-identifying-marks-57621.html

    That said, I believe all printers have slight individual anomalies. However, some of these change over time, so their use for identification may have a window of opportunity.

    To be sure, a disposable printer, like a burner phone, is always a good idea.

    Gonna need to see the stats on this, because the most diversity Ive ever seen in the Postal Inspectors was a blonde dude named Reyes.

    Everyone I ever met was an affirmative action black woman. Where do you live? Wyoming? Vermont?

    I have seen some of the commenters reference sites that give odds and take bets on all kinds of things , that is if I understood the comments correctly . If there are such sites are they giving odds/taking bets on the outcome of this foolishness ? Just going by his victim points and recent history I would bet on some behave yourself , promise to do better next time kind of deal .

    On another subject this video :

    Of course many people are probably gleefully looking forward to this to coincide with a Cascadia subduction zone earthquake and maybe a volcano or two thrown in for good measure . A sort of localized mass extinction event . The problem is these hi-tech refugees fleeing the bums paradise will bring their politics with them , they're not fleeing the lunatic politics of Ca. just the consequences of them .
    This I think is what happened to Seattle and Portland in the late 80's early 90's . I was in and out of both cities back then and the local people were embittered about what the refugees were doing to their states . Now they have their sites on Texas and they'll find plenty of Kindred souls in Austen .

    Is that near Austin?

    He will find religion before sentencing and do his time with Madoff (kosher requirements), not the prisons the goyim are sent to.

    If Jussie has any money after paying the CPD, Bernie can show him how to earn a consistent 11+% which compounded over 30YEARS is a lot.

    p.s. Madoff has not passed.
