Reporting that the brothers are in some sort of safehouse provided by the police. Supposedly they were paid $3500 by Ropeman. I guess they took it to Nigeria. $500 more when they returned.

Oops.

I'm guessing all the screaming dems and Hollywood numbs will offer up apologies when he's found guilty.

Got to say the first two months of 2019 have not been very good for the credibility of the main stream media.

And do you know what hurts the most. Plenty of black guys in Chicago would have killed to make that $3k but no he had to use imports.

I am still confused on why you would hire two black guys for this job. There were many oversights with this hoax, but that is probably the biggest one.

This crap been pretty common place for awhile, we got drag into a war by that girl who said the Iraqi killed babies in a hospital back in the early 90s

Heck I got suspended at another forum pointing out these types of tactics is nothing new, the KKK would falsify crimes to make groups they oppose look bad.

maybe we should start a new thread where we can organize and catalog (for use in other threads?) all known Liberal antics of this sort over, say, the last 25 years. we could call it the "Democrat Bullshit Artist Catalog" thread.
i would nominate this genius, Mike Nifong, D-NC==>

I think the max sentence is 3 years in Illinois. Unfortunately, I bet he walks. Which is a real shame.

That POS should be in jail. I bet liberal Hollywood will give him a pass and allow him to star in shows/movies and the left leaning media will just forget this ever happened and cover it as little as possible as it does not fit their narrative.

If they can prove he had anything to do with the threatening letter with white powder that was sent to him, which seems very likely, he's in HUGE trouble. If there is one agency that you don't fuck with ever it's the USPS.

Police seized a magazine with pages missing and stamps from the brothers' home.

Alright, I said previously that I would reserve opinion until more solid evidence came out. While we don't have formal charges against Smollett or a confession yet, I can say that things are leaning pretty far towards Smollett being full of shit based on the most recent police announcements.

All the liberals jumped up and announced that he must be telling the truth, including Joe Biden, Maxine Waters, Nancy Pelosi, Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, Kamala Harris, Cory Booker, the NYT and GQ. There was no doubting Smollett’s tale of woe, it must have been so, they reasoned. Why would anyone lie about something like that?

Except, they do, all … the … freaking … time.
  • Like when Muslim college student Yasmin Seweid claimed she was harassed on a train by white Trump supporters who tried to rip off her hijab and called her a terrorist. Turns out, Seweid made it all up to get out of trouble with her parents.
  • Or when William Tucker, a black man, was charged with criminal mischief for vandalizing a vehicle with the words “Black Bitches” and “Trump rules.”
  • Or that time a female Bowling Green State University student made up a story about three white Trump supporters shouting profanities and throwing rocks at her.
  • Or when a University of Louisiana student lied about two men - one in a Trump hat - attacking her, robbing her, and trying to take off her hijab. Or the “non-white” student who wrote “White Lives Matter” and another racial slur on a Missouri high school bathroom mirror.
  • Oh, and remember Covington? Yeah, the reality behind all that didn’t quite align with the desired liberal narrative, so much so that even many on the political right were compelled to apologize for jumping to conclusions.

Yes, tragically, there are genuine hate crimes against minorities in this country, like the Pittsburgh synagogue and Charleston church shootings. But these sorts of crimes thankfully aren’t nearly as common as those on the left would have us believe.

https://dailycaller.com/2019/01/20/c...ors-apologies/

I've came to the conclusion that Democrats wanted this story to be true: No victims, no votes! When you stop to think about it, it seems like Democrats don’t want racism to end. Their party would be useless if it did. Without victims they won’t get votes. If all Americans were financially independent and content with their lives, there’d be no need for the Democratic Party as it exists today. The Left constantly stokes fear and anger into the hearts and minds of their voters in hopes that more Americans will depend on them for protection from evil conservatives, and for purpose in life. Democrats choose to believe that white Christian, conservative men are all racists and homophobes. Not because they necessarily believe it, but void of real solutions to the nation’s problems, they need a bogeyman to secure their power.

I also have yet to see a single of the rabid anti-Trump folks or liberals jump into this thread and criticize Smollett for the alleged false statement. Not one.

Perhaps is the MSM and Hollywood wouldn't jump on board every time someone makes an allegation and they waited for a proper investigation then just maybe folks would be less inclined to make up false shit for the risk of being found out rather than being heralded.

Number one they don't care. Trump in office has exposed all of them for the partisan hacks that they really are. And for most of these hoax's there are no consequences for bad reporting so they wont stop. This Smollet dope is actually facing consequences because he was dumb enough to go to the cops. If he hadn't his allegations would have been swept under the rug once proven false and the media would have moved on to the next orange man and his followers are bad story.

Jussie the race baiter said through his attorneys that he WONT be talking to the Chicago PD. Surprise, surprise.
Hopefully he'll be booked sooner then later.

As run silent said; without constantly stoking the race fire and keeping it hot, the dems have nothing. Nothing.

That is true I forgot about that. But how will they prove he was directly involved? Like he can say yes I paid them but to only mug me. They made up the letter thing on their own, I never told or paid them to do it right? Unless there is a smoking gun I don't think the two Nigerians testimonies would be enough...hopefully they have text messages or emails of the plans. He has a very expensive lawyer and PR firm he just hired.

I just want to see him get the max possible. Lying about a hate crime is much worse than an actual hate crime.



https://chicago.cbslocal.com/2019/02...staged-attack/ <--the letter was not enough so he staged the mugging. All to not get written off the show.

"FBI is handling the investigation surrounding the letter, because that’s a federal-level concern."




“As a victim of a hate crime who has cooperated with the police investigation, Jussie Smollett is angered and devastated by recent reports that the perpetrators are individuals he is familiar with. He has now been further victimized by claims attributed to these alleged perpetrators that Jussie played a role in his own attack. Nothing is further from the truth and anyone claiming otherwise is lying.

“One of these purported suspects was Jussie’s personal trainer who he hired to ready him physically for a music video. It is impossible to believe that this person could have played a role in the crime against Jussie or would falsely claim Jussie’s complicity.”

Hopefully they planned it through text message or email and not voice call or in person. Dude wasn't exactly forthright with his phone records even though investigators have it all. He paid for the rope and red hat, not exactly big ticket items, maybe he paid for the stamps too. He screwed up at pretty much every step of the way so here's hoping for one more.

When/If this goes to court its gonna be his lawyers vs each of the brothers' lawyers to see who can throw who under the bus. With the bros cooperating and Smollett seemingly not it'll be interesting to watch.

Bump

'Washington Post' opinion writer and MSNBC contributor Jonathan Capehart said Monday people "want to believe" Jussie Smollett because it fit "a reality for a lot of people" since President Trump took office. Capehart said the "atmosphere of hate" around the country made Smollett's story believable.

O'rly?
