Update: There’s an interesting Jussie Smollett-Southern Poverty Law Center connection. As I blogged on March 22:

Did SPLC’s New Savior Tina Tchen, Michelle O’s Majordomo, Try to Rig the Jussie Smollett Investigation?

When SPLC president Richard Cohen fired cofounder Morris Dees, he also hired Tina Tchen, Michelle Obama’s chief of staff, to write a Report on the SPLC’s “climate.” Meanwhile, Tina tried to get State’s Attorney Kim Foxx to drop the local investigation into Jussie. Interesting …

My upcoming Taki’s Magazine column on Wednesday, which I finished a few hours before the latest Jussie News broke, is about conspiracies and conspiracy theories, using the SPLC as an amusing example of how the media narrative is so often the mirror image of reality.

Also, L.A. attorney Mark Geragos was accused this week of conspiring with attorney Michael Avenatti to blackmail Nike, but got a win today when his client Jussie Smollett walked in Chicago.

From the Chicago Sun-Times:

Emanuel calls dropping charges against Jussie Smollett a ‘whitewash of justice’

By Andy Grimm and Mitchell Armentrout

In a highly unusual decision, prosecutors on Tuesday dropped charges against “Empire” actor Jussie Smollett that accused him of staging a hate-crime attack against himself — a move that Mayor Rahm Emanuel later called a “whitewash of justice.”

The actor was indicted March 8 with 16 counts of disorderly conduct for allegedly hiring two men to attack him near his Streeterville home in January. The $10,000 posted for Smollett’s bond will be turned over to the City of Chicago Law Department.

Cook County Circuit Judge Steven G. Watkins sealed the case file during a hearing that lasted less than 5 minutes.

Chicago police officials said Supt. Eddie Johnson was not briefed on the decision to drop charges and learned about it in the middle of a police academy graduation ceremony scheduled at the same time State’s Attorney Kim Foxx’s office announced it.

Wasn’t Kim Foxx the bass player in The Runaways who was at Harvard Law School with Barack, but didn’t like his preening First-Black-President act because he reminded her of her old bandmate Joan Jett?

Oh … check that, that was Jackie Fox who played the bass in The Runaways and compared her HLS classmate to Joan Jett for their mutual ambition to be a star. And Kim Fowley was the manager of The Runaways.

Kim Foxx is completely different. Never mind …

A police source said Johnson was “furious” and maintained the evidence against Smollett was “rock solid.”

Later in the day, Johnson said he believed “the city is still owed an apology.”

“Do I think justice is served? No,” Johnson said. “Where do I think justice is? I think this city’s still owed an apology.”

“If you want to say that you’re innocent of a situation, then you take your day in court. . . . If someone falsely accused me, I would never hide behind a brokered deal and secrecy.”

Emanuel ripped the decision to drop charges against Smollett.

“This is without a doubt a whitewash of justice, and sends a clear message that if you’re in a position of influence and power, you’ll get treated one way, other people will be treated another way,” Emanuel said. “There is no accountability in the system. It is wrong, full stop.”

Ed Wodnicki, the 18th District police commander who oversaw the investigation, called the decision to drop the charges “a kick in the gut.”

He said the $10,000 in bond forfeited by Smollett “doesn’t come close” to covering the cost in resources and manpower to probe the heater case that drew national attention.“I think the citizens of Chicago should be upset about that,” Wodnicki said.

“We wasted time and effort on a reported serious, serious crime, to get to the point that it’s a lie? I want reimbursement. I’m a citizen in the city of Chicago. I want my money back,” he said.

“We were absolutely prepared to go to trial. We were rock solid. We were excited to have this case prosecuted,” Wodnicki said.

TIMELINE: The Jussie Smollett investigation

Chicago police spokesman Tom Ahern said double-jeopardy means Smollett won’t face any more charges in Chicago unless FBI officials, who are continuing to investigate a hate letter mailed the actor, decide to press federal charges.

Police officials said they’d presented “only a sliver” of the evidence against Smollett publicly — and that evidence now remains sealed under a judge’s orders.

Ahern estimated the cost of CPD’s Smollett probe in the “hundreds of thousands” and said city budget were workers were still tallying the full investigation tab.

The Fraternal Order of Police on Tuesday renewed its call for a federal investigation into Foxx’s “interference” in the Smollett case.

“The conduct of her office from the very beginning of this cases was highly, highly suspicious,” Martin Preib, FOP second vice president, told the Chicago Sun-Times.

‘Incredibly difficult time’
After the court hearing on Tuesday, Smollett said, “I want to thank the state of Illinois for attempting to do what is right.”

“I want to thank my family, friends, the incredible people of Chicago . . . who have prayed for me, who have supported me. . . . I want you to know that not for a moment was it in vain. I’ve been truthful and consistent on every single level since day one.”

“This has been an incredibly difficult time, honestly one of the worst of my entire life.”

Now he will go back and continue to “fight for the betterment of the lives of marginalized people everywhere.”

Smollett lawyer Patricia Brown Holmes said there was no deal with prosecutors.

“There is no deferred prosecution . . . The state dismissed the charges,” Holmes said. “We believe it was the correct result . . . We are very anxious for Jussie to get on with his life.”

“[Jussie] is someone who has dedicated his life to public service since he was 15 years old. He is someone who has taken the city of Chicago as his home. He is a good, solid citizen of the city of Chicago.”

The studio and network behind “Empire,” 20th Century Fox Television and Fox Broadcasting, praised the decision to drop charges against the actor: “Jussie Smollett has always maintained his innocence and we are gratified on his behalf that all charges against him have been dismissed.”

The decision to drop charges
First Assistant State’s Attorney Joseph Magats said the decision to drop the charges should not be interpreted that Smollett did not do what police and prosecutors have alleged — pay his assailants to fake the attack and then falsely report the incident to police.

Nor did dropping the charges mean that Smollett was a victim of a crime, Magats said emphatically.

“Absolutely not. We stand behind the CPD investigation done in this case, we stand behind the approval of charges in this case,” Magats told the Sun-Times. “They did a fantastic job. The fact there was an alternative disposition in this case is not and should not be viewed as some kind of admission there was something wrong with the case, or something wrong with the investigation that the Chicago Police did.”

Magats, who became the final decision maker on the case after Foxx recused herself in mid-February, said prosecutors made the decision to drop the charges against Smollett under the same criteria they would any other defendant.

“It’s a nonviolent crime. He has no felony criminal background. If you start looking at the disposition in the case, in every case you need to look at the facts and circumstances of the case, and the defendant’s background.”

Magats noted that while there was no court-ordered community service, Smollett had been active in the community even after he was charged. Sealing records as part of deferred prosecution is common, Magats said.

Lawyers surprised by prosecutors’ move
The move by the state’s attorney’s office had many attorneys in the hallways of the Leighton Criminal Court Building scratching their heads. What Foxx’s office characterized as winding up the case under “deferred prosecution” laws appeared to be the State’s Attorney’s Office simply dropping the charges little over a month after he was charged.

Dave Gaeger, a defense attorney in the courtroom during the Smollett hearing, said he was shocked and surprised by what he heard. Smollett was not required to perform additional community service, avoid further charges for a set period, or fulfill any other conditions to have the charges dropped, and turning over his bond money to the city was not described as “restitution” or a fine.

“This was a unique outcome for a case of this magnitude, or at least for the amount of attention it’s gotten, and it’s not very transparent,” Gaeger said. “There is deferred prosecution, but based on what I heard in court today, that’s not what this was. (Smollett) was not in a pre-trial diversion program. There was no time frame set for him to complete certain conditions. His case was dismissed, based on community service he’d already done, and money.”

Gaeger said he had never seen a similar conclusion to a case, and said he’d certainly never been offered similar deals by prosecutors.

“No defense attorney is going to disparage another lawyer for getting the best possible outcome for their client . . . but this conclusion, in a case with all this intrigue around it, really makes me wonder.”

Kiera Ellis, a spokeswoman for Foxx’s office, said Smollett’s willingness to turn over the $10,000 he posted was key to the decision to resolve the case.

“There would be no nolle without the forfeiture,” she said, referring to the technical term for wiping out the charges, the Latin “nolle prosequi,” meaning “to refuse to pursue.”

Whatever agreements were put on paper in the case will be difficult, if not impossible, for the public to see. Smollett’s case was put under “immediate seal” by Watkins and none of the case files will be available for public viewing, according to Watkins’ courtroom clerk.

  5. And because there was no community service ordered, there is no product of compromise which would have barred Smollett from bringing a civil rights action against the cops for malicious prosecution and false arrest. Prosecutors basically put the cops on the hook for a civil 1983 action and they could be sued by Smollett in Federal court. Way to throw the cops under the bus!

    “His passion for providing legal clinics and pro bono work over the years in the crime-ridden neighborhoods on the south side of Chicago is the reason he receives a huge number of referrals for legal representation. … He remains a force to be reckoned with in the courtroom as he is known to take his opponent on on the battlefield fighting for justice and exposing the wrongdoings of prosecutors and police officer’s actions with his clients. Yet he remains respectful and with a controlled temperament toward colleagues.

    It’s not even 1 %, I’m sure, and I agree with the police commander here. However:

    I’m a citizen in the city of Chicago. I want my money back,” he said.

    Well, not quite. You’re getting paid no matter what. Whatever money you pay in taxes obviously doesn’t come close to the salary and benefits paid to you FROM tax money. I agree with the general sentiment and concern for the ACTUAL taxpayers, but then again, the police have plenty of discretion too, in what crimes they will spend time on. Was it not obvious to commander Wod-nick-ee(?) who oversaw the investigation, that this was very likely a hoax? Perhaps he should read more Steve Sailer in the future so as not to waste the ACTUAL Chicago property-tax-payer’s money next time.

    Either that, or he did know his department was throwing money down a hole, but wanted to stay in good graces with his bosses, making him a coward, I suppose.

    Good! This brings us closer to the Crane Brinton moment of recognizing that doctors are not doctors, the laws are not laws, the police are not the police, and the justice system is a clutch of black gangsters taking tax money without being on welfare. This wakes people up and brings us closer to resolution.
    And if any lawyer doesn’t like that, all they have to do is what they were supposed to do. There is no lynch mob where people think the system works.

    Real simple. Black people don’t have to obey the law. And are free to pursue Blood Libels against White men at any and every turn.

    Anyone expecting justice or even common decency should dump that Civic Nationalism junk immediately.

    I think White men should pursue a distributed, decentralized, and eternal protest against Smollet to deter further Blood Libels by him or others. If he’s at a restaurant, flash mob action the way it happened with Sarah Sanders. At his home, the Tucker Carlson treatment. Make his co-stars miserable, and give them the same treatment as well as the show runner and Gay Black Man Lee Daniels.

    If you don’t want a non-stop Blood Libel leading to say, yourself getting the Reginald Denny Treatment by enraged, stirred up Blacks believing a phony attack, you need to as a Community Organizer said, “punch back twice as hard.” Nothing violent, or illegal, just constant, non-stop, distributed, action that never, ever stops.

    White men either work to punish those who abuse them or they will get abused non-stop. This utterly predictable move to let an Obama crony walk on a faked hate crime Blood Libel will only open the gates to constant Blood Libels unless collective distributed decentralized action takes place.

    At a minimum there should be picket lines on set and demonstrations at every location shooting. Costars like Terence Howard and Taraji P. Henderson should have people with bullhorns asking them why they hate White people for supporting Jussie Smollet. Every day. On Set. On location.

    The best way to deter violence is not to look like an easy victim.

    Credit where credit is due – MikeatMikedotMike got this exactly right:

    “Not happening. We’ve been over this before.

    ” The prosecutors, the judges, the local media and even Rahm Emmanuel”

    …are all “criminal justice reform” minded, meaning, lighter prosecution/sentencing for blacks.

    Some or even most of the cops are likely pissed, but they have no influence of the judicial proceedings. None. Cook County ASA’s and judges allow violent black offenders to plead to lesser charges every. single. day. of the year in Chicago, much to the perpetual frustration of the police. Assault with a deadly weapon gets plead down to unlawful discharge of a firearm, for example.

    Even if Smollett isn’t allowed to plead down, no Lakeview/Boystown jury will convict him. Prosecutors likely realize this. Thus he will be offered a plea.

    The ENTIRE leadership structure of the political and criminal justice leviathan of Chicago/Cook County is black, and the next mayor of Chicago will be an old black woman. They do not, and will not, break ranks.

    I don’t like it anymore than you do, but that is the reality.”

    For what it is worth, Rahm is claiming he is outraged and called it a “whitewash of justice.” Interesting choice of words from Rahm. The likely incoming mayor is not just a black woman, but a black lesbian who previously worked on a task force that investigated/second guessed police officers who discharged their weapon in the line of duty. It wouldn’t surprise me if she also let the prosecutor’s office know she wanted the case dismissed.

    Cook County is a Dem monolith, with the primary being the real election. That being said, GOP voters should vote in the Dem primaries to exercise a limited degree of influence.

    Where the GOP is demographically defeated, it should do its voters the favor of dissolving itself, and allowing a new Socialist Party to form to the left of the Dems.

    Aside from the DA just throwing the case for political reasons (the Occam’s Butterknife explanation) the only other thing I can think of is that Jussie’s lawyers somehow presented evidence that while the Nigerians were indeed the ones who attacked him, Jussie was not in on it. Some of the evidence (such as the payments made by Jussie to the Nigerians) was arguably ambiguous – Jussie could have had some other reason for paying them (e.g. for sex) that would have been embarrassing to the state’s case – thus the unseemly haste to drop the case at an “emergency” hearing and the sealing of the files.

    The line about how agreeing to forfeit the $10,000 bail (without any admission of guilt or anything more) was the key breakthru doesn’t make any sense. If you could get off from serious criminal charges just by forfeiting bail, every defense lawyer in America would take that deal all day, every day, but it’s never offered.

  47. Not surprised. Anyone who thought that a celebrated black fudge packer would get more than a slap on the wrist was kidding themselves. Jussie was the beneficiary of the Zeitgeist.

    I still suspect that either Kamala Harris, who knows Smollett personally, or Obama (Smollett’s sister worked for Obama), asked Jussie to fake a hate crime with the goal of increasing black turnout in the Democratic primary. They wanted to give Harris enough of a boost that she’d beat Bernie.

    This hate hoax appeared about the same time the first slate of Democratic candidates announced they were running.

    The timing is highly suspicious.

    At this time, Biden had not yet declared he was running, and Beto was way behind with only single digit support. Almost all the other candidates were also in the single digit area, including Harris. But one guy was running ahead, namely Bernie.

    The traditional Democratic machine absolutely did not want him to win. The New Young Turks in the party like Omar are anti-Israel and pro-Muslim, and think Bernie’s too risky because he’s a Jew. Other American blacks (e.g. Obama) feel more connection with Islam and don’t trust Bernie either. Still others blame him for running against Hillary.

    I think we all underestimate how much the Democratic party elite are alarmed by a potential Bernie win in the primary, and they’ll do anything to stop him from getting the nomination, including creating hate hoaxes.

    “Emanuel ripped the decision to drop charges against Smollett.

    “This is without a doubt a whitewash of justice, and sends a clear message that if you’re in a position of influence and power, you’ll get treated one way, other people will be treated another way,” Emanuel said. “There is no accountability in the system. It is wrong, full stop.””

    When a black celebrity gets away with a crime despite everyone knowing that he did it, shouldn’t it be called “blackwash” instead of “whitewash”? After all, it’s the corrupt blacks in the legal system and government that blotted it out. Or, in OJ’s case, a black jury.

    Chicago is a chocolate city now, as Ray Nagin used to say about New Orleans. Although I’m going to guess that Emanuel was involved in Rahmming it through, along with BHO, and it’s all a fake moral outrage. It’s very funny to read about Rahm pontificating on preferential treatment of those in a position of influence and power. Did you see what poor Barack had to suffer through, despite being POTUS? The two-year-long FBI investigation into Russian collusion, the incessant talk of impeachment, indictment and arrest… oh wait, that was a different POTUS.
    Or, take Rahm’s terrorist father, for instance – the indignity of being barred from entering the US to visit his sons on account of being a terrorist on a no-fly list, despite Rahm’s lofty position in the Obama administration… Well, I guess that technically didn’t happen, either.

    The line about how agreeing to forfeit the $10,000 bail (without any admission of guilt or anything more) was the key breakthru doesn’t make any sense. If you could get off from serious criminal charges just by forfeiting bail, every defense lawyer in America would take that deal all day, every day, but it’s never offered.

    Depending on the jurisdiction, crap like this happens all the time. I don’t know about Chicago or Cook County or whatever, but it doesn’t sound unusual.

    It doesn’t usually happen in quite the way it went down here. Most run of the mill criminals don’t have 10 grand to surrender. Normally, a bail bondsman puts up the money after the criminal pays his fee. As long as the criminal shows up for court, the bond money is returned to the bondsman when all is said and done. The bondsman would never agree to surrender the money he put up. In this case, Jussie put up his own money so he can agree to forfeit it. In a more typical case, the criminal might have to pay some fines and costs and/or be put on unsupervised probation (which basically means nothing). In many jurisdictions, people commit crimes as serious or more serious than this one and get away no jail time and paying some money or not even that.

    “Crimefightin’ Kim” Foxx Hits the Red Carpet at the Oscars

    To complicate matters further, at the same moment Foxx’s recusal was revealed to residents, Ms. Foxx disappeared altogether from Chicago. Foxx, it was discovered later, was busy elsewhere … in Hollywood to be seated among film industry gentry at Raising Our Voices: Supporting More Women in Hollywood hosted by pro-abortion group Emily’s List. Read into it what you will, but there are a number of reasons why Foxx recused herself from overseeing the Smollett investigation and precisely why Foxx re-surfaced on February 19 in, of all places, California’s coked-up canyon.

    But by traveling to Hollywood in the midst of recusing herself from the Smollett inquiry under dubious circumstances and fraternizing with Tinseltown’s uber-wealthy at the highly-politicized, pre-Oscars revelry, Foxx is leaving the awkward image of a minor public official active in a transactional relationship with Smollett’s admirers in Hollywood. Although no evidence exists at the moment to indicate Foxx’s presence at Raising Our Voices on February 19 produced an agreement between Foxx and Smollet’s affluent Hollywood cronies to show mercy to Smollett in return for a pledge to subsidize Foxx’s future political dreams, it does bear repeating the odd circumstances leave the impression an unorthodox and unseemly understanding between both parties may have been reached. Knowing Ms. Foxx and understanding she considers herself preordained for national office, it does not strain credulity to speculate Cook County’s Progressive luminary recused herself and handed off the Smollett case to subordinates to ingratiate herself with Hollywood figures whom she is aligned politically and from whom she breathlessly awaits financing for her future drive for national office.

    “It’s a nonviolent crime. He has no felony criminal background. If you start looking at the disposition in the case, in every case you need to look at the facts and circumstances of the case, and the defendant’s background.”

    Smollett still has no criminal background officially.

    Magats noted that while there was no court-ordered community service, Smollett had been active in the community even after he was charged. Sealing records as part of deferred prosecution is common, Magats said.

    When “activeness in the community” meaning black advocacy and campaigning for queer agenda counts as community service and makes people immune against prosecution, we are on the road to totalitarianism.

  144. The fact that Smollett walked may not be all that surprising… the fact that’s he still playing victim and sanctimoniously professing to seek ‘justice ‘ and ‘equality’ is pretty brazen. His preening has to burn the investigators ass in a major way . Of course, with the records conveniently sealed he will always enjoy some level of presumptive innocence among certain demographics . The federal case was always the more serious . Let’s see if they allow his privileged status to undermine that investigation and the integrity of the U.S. mail .

  145. I think this is a great outcome. It really rubs the noses of the American people in that crap that is our justice system. Perhaps it will wake more people up.

    The Smollett case was the highest profile hate hoax that has come along and it blew up utterly and spectacularly. Countless other hate crimes have proved to be hoaxes, but they didn’t garner this amount of attention. When they fizzled out it wasn’t commented on. Most people probably assumed that they were true, just unresolved. Until the Smollett case, the term “hate hoax” wasn’t even in the lexicon. He put it there.

    If Smollett had been prosecuted, the low-information voters would have concluded it was an anomaly and that the legal system takes hate hoaxes seriously. It doesn’t, as should now be obvious to all. Smollett continuing to lie to our faces just makes the whole situation more infuriating.

    So, all in all, the corrupt system and the odious Jussie Smollett have ended up doing us a service. How much clearer do we have to make it, America?

    It is this result that has provoked people like Emanuel and Axelrod to condemn the decision to dismiss charges. It exposes things they would rather remain hidden. They have to act shocked.

    This truly changes my outlook of this country and the prospect of a peaceful coexistence.

    Civic Nationalism is dead.

    In the early 2000s, Paul Craig Roberts wrote a series of dynamite columns about a concept he called the New Feudalism. These columns catapulted him to some prominence within the by-then-slowly-emerging dissident Right.

    Here is one case I readily find, published Dec. 2002, now re-hosted at Unz.com:

    For three decades [i.e., since the 1970s] the United States has been descending into a feudal legal order.

    In the ancient feudal system, the differential rights in the legal system were class-based. In the new feudal order, rights are determined by race, gender, and handicapped status. In the old feudalism, the people with the most rights were descendants of warriors. In the new system, it is the victim who has superior rights.

    This difference aside, there are many similarities between the two feudal legal systems despite the many centuries that separate them.

    In the old feudal system, there were no First Amendment rights. The legally privileged were free to engage in hate speech and to verbally harass others, but any commoner who replied in kind could be sued or have his tongue cut out.

    His point being, a comparable system is reemerging.

    And who are the new commoners? We all know it. The new commoners are you and me. White men. PCR coined “WHAMs” (White, Heterosexual, Able-bodied Males) to describe the New Commoners.

    Black Americans have been granted the right to be offended by any words they don’t like and to extract retribution. The offending speaker finds himself forced into contrition and humiliating apologies. Often the penalty is a destroyed career.

    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.

    Kudos to you, Z.

    +10 points in reputation score for correct political prediction. You were vindicated as of today, “D +40 days,” D being the day the Hoax unraveled, circa Feb. 14-15.

    I note that you do have two other predictions in there with a timeline of your own choosing set for this summer:

    — The Smollett Hate Hoax will be “broomed” by the Hoax +6 months mark (July).

    — Smollett will be “tossed off the back of the sleigh” by the left-wing media and “never heard from again.”

    It’s looking, as of late March, like these two secondary predictions may have been over-conservative, especially the second: Smollett may come out the other end celebrated as an Anti-Racist Hero. People upthread have noted that Brian ‘Eunuch’ Stelter has waddled over to his defense as of today, the Hoax Exposed-plus-40-day mark. Why toss him out now? The producers of Empire have apparently come to his defense.

    Far from disappearing like “Dr. Christine Blasey Ford,” he may actually get the career boost he sought.

    “Forfeiture of bond”, if not challenged within 30 days, or within the deadline for appealing adverse actions, is considered a “prior conviction” in most subsequent criminal and civil judicial contexts.

    Not only can someone who has forfeited bond and who has not timely appealed that forfeit not file a viable suit on the basis of innocence, an attempt at filing such a suit would likely be considered a ‘nuisance suit’ or a ‘malicious suit’ and could lead to the person filing the suit finding herself or himself liable for civil damages and very large punitive damages, if they are rich.

    The Pokemon is indeed strong with Jussie.

    That it is not even close to being anything like correct. If there is one thing you can be sure of concerning today’s otherwise inexplicable events, it is that Jussie Smollett’s release has nothing to do with Pokemon points.

    Some of you are gloating about having been proven “right” regarding the outcome of the Chicago trial. I’m going to address the inherent cuckoldry of that sentiment in a moment; but before I do so, it is more important to disabuse everyone of the planted axiom. Nobody was right about this outcome; nobody predicted this; there is not a one of you, whom I am aware of, who predicted that Jussie would walk due to an unfathomable deus ex machina political stick save, the precise nature of which remains even now totally unknown.

    What you predicted was that Jussie was untouchable because he was black and gay (yes, the italics were present in some of the original comments, lest anybody miss the emphasis); however, it is just this portion of the prediction which is manifestly untrue. The police were still pursuing the investigation despite everyone knowing that Jussie is black and gay. National sentiment had already turned against the hate hoaxer despite him being black and gay. Jussie’s high-ranking political patrons had already abandoned him despite him being black and gay. The Pokemon bloom had worn off Jussie as soon as the facts came out, and his blackness and gayness availed him nothing during his subsequent arraignment and indictment. Everything was set to go down in strict justice before the angel acquitter came out of nowhere to get this undeniably guilty person off the hook.

    In order for your prediction to have been borne out, Jussie’s great black gayness would have had to have been front and center, dominating the narrative, captivating the media, and turning the whole trial into a modern-day LaDreyfus Affair. Defense attorneys, talk show hosts, and leftist politicians looking to make some hay out of the proceedings, would all have gravitated towards the idea that “this persecuted black gay man was just trying to draw attention to the plight of people like himself” as their natural line of defense. In short, it would have been the narrative on trial, not the defendant. Yet precisely none of this happened. Jussie Smollett, the man, was very much the only creature on trial in the minds of anyone paying attention, and his conviction was such a slam dunk that popular consensus had already written him off. No voices were raised in support of the troubled gay black man, nor had they been for some time. Quite the contrary, the mayor and the chief of police are still denouncing him. Nowhere is there to be found anyone who insists that gay black men are (or should be) given a pass when they commit crimes. Except for one place, that is.

    And that would be here. Therein lies the shameful, monumental cuckoldry of holding this attitude. And what is the reason for such a revolting display? “I was right.” Given the travesty that occurred on this day, the shameless miscarriage of justice, it is tantamount to predicting (nay, insisting) that one day Jussie Smollett would come down to personally sodomize you in public. Then, when more sober-minded people (who sensibly refused to countenance this idea) made indications to you that it need not necessarily be the case, it is as if you responded by dropping your pants and grabbing your ankles when Jussie appeared, presenting him with a ripe target of opportunity, simply so that, as the sensible people departed the scene, your strained voice could just be heard over the grunts wailing out, “I was right and you were wrong. Neener, neener, neener.”

    But the experience of being pounded is not an acceptable price to pay just for the rather hollow satisfaction of being right about something. This is indeed a Pyrrhic victory if ever there was one. Fortunately for you, as I have explained above, it is not really a victory at all (Pyrrhic or otherwise) for you were not right in your principal contention. Today was not a triumph of Pokeman points, but a criminal interference with a legitimate trial that is the very definition of obstruction of justice. Make no mistake, the person or persons behind this will be discovered and investigated, and in the end it will be far worse for both them and for Jussie than it would have been had the latter simply manned up and taken the rap. For the public has now been informed, in the most pathetic possible way, that justice is no longer available for them through the courts. But justice is no empty concept or fictional proposition invented by men. It is a real, though incorporeal, thing. If the courts will not do justice, then people will seek it by means outside of the courts. And if no human agency is available to secure it, then God Himself will send the Furies to avenge the injured parties. Blessed are those who hunger and thirst after righteousness, for they shall be filled”, is a Beatitude and promise given from on high. The hour has come when all men will see that the word of the Lord does not returneth in vain.

    Jussie Smollett and his handlers are messing with things they neither understand nor seek to understand. They have brought the country to a critical juncture, to a moral vacuum which nature abhors no less than a physical. Of this you can be certain: It will be filled, with their cooperation or without it.

    Wasn’t Kim Foxx the bass player in The Runaways who was at Harvard Law School with Barack, but didn’t like his preening First-Black-President act because he reminded her of her old bandmate Joan Jett?

    Oh … check that, that was Jackie Fox. Kim Foxx is completely different. Never mind …

    Jackie Fox
    From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
    Jump to navigation
    Jump to search
    For the (male) English cricketer usually known as “Jackie Fox”, see John Fox (cricketer, born 1929).
    Jackie Fox
    Birth name Jacqueline Louise Fuchs
    Also known as Jackie Fox
    Genres Punk rock, hard rock, heavy metal
    Occupation(s) Musician, bassist, attorney
    Instruments vocals, bass
    Years active 1975–1977
    Labels Mercury Records
    Associated acts The Runaways, Lita Ford, Joan Jett, Cherie Currie, Sandy West

    Jacqueline Louise Fuchs is an American attorney and former musician. Under her stage name Jackie Fox, she played bass guitar for the pioneering all-girl teenage rock band the Runaways. She is the sister of screenwriter Carol Fuchs and sister-in-law of Castle Rock Entertainment co-founder Martin Shafer.

    [snip]

    Personal life and Kim Fowley assault

    In July 2015, Fox alleged that Kim Fowley raped her on New Year’s Eve 1975 at a party following a Runaways performance at an Orange County club. Sixteen years old at the time, Fox was reportedly given Quaaludes by a man she thought was a roadie, and while she was incapacitated, Fowley allegedly raped her in full view of a group of partygoers and her bandmates Currie, West, and Jett; Ford was not present.[10]

    West’s location at the time of the incident is unknown, but Fox said that her last memory of the night was seeing Currie and Jett staring at her as Fowley raped her.[10] Kari Krome (co-founder and songwriter for the group) stated that she saw “Jett and Currie sitting off to the side of the room for part of the time, snickering” during the rape.[10] Jett has publicly denied witnessing the incident “as described,” while Currie said she spoke up against Fowley’s actions, then stormed out of the room when he refused to stop.[10][11]

    Before Fox came forward, Fowley allegedly raped an underage girl at the party on New Year’s Eve 1975, though the victim was never publicly identified. Currie described the incident in the documentary Edgeplay: A Film About the Runaways and also, in detail, in an updated edition of her memoir Neon Angel: A Memoir of a Runaway.[12] In the chapter titled “Kim Fowley’s Sex Education Class,” Fox is originally mentioned as a bystander, and asks for more food after witnessing the rape. But Fox threatened legal action against Currie if the chapter was published in its original form because “the event described in Cherie’s book never happened”; Currie edited the chapter to exclude her.[13] Tischler-Blue (Fox’s replacement in the group) said that all the members of the group “have always been aware of this ugly event.”[14]

    She wasn’t even particularly a good musician even by the standards of The Runaways. Truth told, only Lita Ford had much chops. Ford’s autobio is worth a read and she is a nice person, I’ve met her.

    There should be no further question here.

    Smollett’s family has claimed that they did not make a deal with prosecutors. They claim he has been completely vindicated by the outcome and that it proves he was telling the truth all along.

    Fox told DailyMail.com on Tuesday about the Empire actor: ‘Jussie Smollett has always maintained his innocence and we are gratified that all charges against him have been dismissed.’

    Reading ID’s long comment above, I’m not sure what he thinks the lesson of the Smollett Hate Hoax Affair is, and would be curious to know. He doesn’t seem to think the charges were dropped because Smollett was member of several favored classes (five that I can think of: Black, Gay, [a third that I choose to omit; it is a religious community with its own ethnostate], Entertainment Industry denizen, anti-Trump’er).

    I think the worst chicanery of my lifetime is that the deep swamp tried to steal from us – from all of us Americans – 2 years of Trump’s presidency that should have been happy years, like those fun years when Reagan had just been elected, and tried to make them into years where we were supposed to wonder if the evildoer seditious swamp would win. As for me, I knew that clowns like Podesta and Brennan had no shot at taking down Trump, I wasn’t worried, but I am lucky that way, those dishonest clowns did a lot of harm, and caused a lot of worry to a lot of good Americans.

    So let the halfwit Jussie have a good life, he is no more of an idiot than similar idiots on the pro-abortion far right. Sure lying is bad but Shakespeare was right about bad people, we can’t get too mad at liars as long as they beg for forgiveness. (or forfeit their bond, in this case).

    A classical education is generally defined as :

Certainly there will be some naysayers who will see the motion to seal the case that the judge granted as the makings of a cover-up, allowing someone to evade justice without allowing the public to scrutinize the investigative findings, but that’s just conspiracy theory talk!

    The summary we’ve received from the lawyers in this case assuring us that there’s no need to go forward are the only proof we need. I’m sure we can all agree on this.

    Let me break it down for you, since you can’t seem to read and understand English.

    You were much worse than wrong. You had no idea what you were talking about, and you still don’t. You couldn’t possibly know, because the facts of the matter are not known to anyone. But instead of simply admitting you don’t know, you fill in the gaps with a style of supposition that makes you out to be a cuck and a loser, all the while congratulating yourself about being right about something which, if it were true, would only prove what a fool you are. However, even though it isn’t true, you insist on playing the fool anyway, because at least that makes you right about something.

    No. They. Didn’t.

    Please tell me who it was who predicted that Jussie Smollett would be indicted on felony charges, convicted in the court of public opinion, and condemned by the black chief of police and Rahm freaking Emanuel only after being miraculously delivered by a squishy prosecutor who nevertheless demanded the surrender of a $10,000 bond and who insisted that Jussie was indeed guilty of the charges brought against him?

    Go ahead, tell me. Or simply read again what I wrote.

    Jussie did not skate. He was forced to pay a penalty and his guilt has been publicly stipulated, albeit in a bizarre manner which will not affect his criminal record. Similar things happen a thousand times a day in our legal system, so this really isn’t all that surprising. My point was that the narrative (i.e. Jessie’s great black gayness) did not help him any.

    No, this is like the OJ verdict – even liberal whites (Rahm Emanuel) were not down with it. Read the NY Times reader comments – goodwhites are not happy about this. The MSM are expressing puzzlement, not pleasure.

    This is the difference between liberal whites (including Jews) and blacks – whites will bend and distort the system but without breaking it (at least in the short term) because they “get it”. They understand the advantages of a Constitutional system and market economy – as high IQ Leftists, they want to “improve” the system to make it fairer, but they understand the need for it and how it’s supposed to work. RBG is their queen.

    Blacks don’t really understand high level concepts like “rule of law” and “impartial justice” on a deep level. All they really understand is “I win” or “I lose”. From their perspective, any time they lose, it’s just the white man’s tricknology – the same tricknology that has been used to oppress them for the last 300 years. When they get to drive the bus, they will drive it straight into the “black people win” lane and will blow right past the stop signs. Goodwhites, who always stop for stop signs, will be horrified. They know that giving black people the keys to the bus was the right thing to do, but they will be mystified about why they are driving so badly.

    Read my other comment. From their perspective, it was right and just that blacks control the justice system in Chicago. They expected that blacks would operate it the way they would have – yes, liberal for sure but not in a way that involved blatant racial favoritism. They would bend the system to make it “fairer” to blacks but wouldn’t break it. This is more or less what Obama did.

    But Obama is a pretty bright guy – Harvard Law Review and all that -even if there was a little AA involved, he’s still pretty bright. Kimberly Foxx went to SIU Law School. Giving her the keys to the justice system is like giving a little kid a fine Swiss watch to repair. Even if she was trying to run it fairly, she didn’t have it in her and anyway she wasn’t really trying.

    If someone throws the game and is really good at it, you’ll never even know. Our team lost – I don’t know what happened. But if they aren’t good, everyone knows right away – I SAW him drop the ball. Foxx is not good. Everyone’s eyes are on her now. Tchen and Obama are groaning – THIS is who we trusted to put the fix in?

    To liberal whites, this is like lending the keys to your car to a teenager – you think that you have taught him well, you have given him all the lectures about safe driving.

    Caught, exposed, and rightly ridiculed for colossal error, your response is to double down and ramp up the insults and namecalling.

    That would be Jussie Smollett, not me. That would be the position taken by Jussie’s apologists, if he had any outside of the Unz Review.

    Look, this needs to be stated again so that the barrerie of it can be sufficiently appreciated. Everyone up to and including the Chicago PD, Rahm Emanuel, and David Axelrod are all livid about this, yet certain iStevers are happy because they think they’ve beaten me.

    What do I have to do with this? What glory is there in that? If you accused your wife of having an affair and she denied it, and then you produced what you thought was sufficiently damning evidence, would you then be happy because you had won the argument? I would think a normal man would be more upset about the affair.

    In situations like this, being “right” is equivalent to being the fool. It is not important to be right, it’s important to be in the right. Here at the precipice, even the most desperate and pathetic attempts at denial have more honor, more courage, more humanity, and more tactical value in them than embracing the role of the cuckold. Stupid obstinance, obdurate persistence, fatalistic ignorance—these have carried many a day and saved many a people. There will be times when it seems like all hope is lost, but the fighters may yet win in the end. The cuckolds never will.

    The shortest way to being “right” about anything is to verbalize your enemy’s intentions, and then surrender. It works every time. Anyone who does this is supremely, triumphantly right in the scribbled records of history, but it comes at the expense of being himself history and destiny and fact. He loses all in the end.

    Instead, they made it blatantly obvious they were illegally making it go away…and left a neon sign inviting the federal government to step in and fry some far bigger fish than Smollet.

    FREE JAMES FIELDS

    locked him away forever in a Virginia dungeon for defending his life against their arranged ambush

    Right-leaning FoxNews talkers all knew (they say they knew) that Smollett was guilty from Day One. They said little or nothing, though, until the formal unraveling of the hoax with the police announcement thereof a little over two weeks after Smollett and the Nigerians staged the attack (followed by the anti-White, anti-MAGA press blitz by Jussie and his accessories-after-the-fact in the media).

    Likewise: The same right-leaning FoxNews talkers have always known James Fields is innocent. They know that James Fields is a political prisoner in the classic sense. But just like with the Jussie Hoax, they say nothing.

    Needed: Moral Courage.

    Talk about letting it all hang out, JackD.

    Blacks don’t really understand high level concepts like “rule of law” and “impartial justice” on a deep level. All they really understand is “I win” or “I lose”.

    You know very well that you can’t say that.

    All they really understand is “I win” or “I lose”.

    Has anyone ever tried to analyze that? Does it correlate with any Big Five personality traits? Or child developmental stages? Or sociopathy?
