    The full horror of Jussie Smollett's botched plot starting to scare progs

    By Thomas Lifson


    The specter of a new "trial of the century" for Jussie Smollett, over what looks like his staging of a fake hate crime, is scaring the leaders of the identity politics movement that dominates the Democratic Party. Two presidential candidates, Cory Booker and Smollett's longstanding friend and associate, Kamala Harris, immediately endorsed and exploited the burst of saturation coverage by the national media to hype the "anti-lynching law" they have been using to burnish their credentials with the victimologist constituency.

    The nightmare would be a televised trial over the felonious filing of a false police report and other possible charges. Yesterday, two famous progs started the campaign to treat Jussie as a victim of a psychiatric malady and therefore properly given treatment, not a prison sentence of up to three years.
    Rep. Eric Swalwell has taken time off from his incessant unproven claims of Trump collusion with Russia to express sympathy for poor Jussie and "hope he gets the help he needs."

    I am certain that he does not regard a stretch in Stony Lonesome as "help." More like an expensive, cushy, private psychiatric hospital, the sort of place other celebrities go for "recovery" from substance abuse and sexual predation charges. Because Swalwell is "very close" to making his 2020 presidential campaign announcement, he has a lot at stake in maintaining the narrative that keeps blacks and gays on the Democrats' plantation.
    Charles Blow, the race-obsessed New York Times editorial board member, thinks Smollett — a "most gracious person" — must be insane, or at least a psychopath. The possibility that he carefully calculated a stunt that (had it not been botched) could have made him a superstar does not seem to occur to him (one-minute video):
    The Chicago Police Department wisely is keeping as tight a lid as possible on its investigation because premature official disclosure could damage the trial. But leaks by rank-and-file cops to local Chicago media (who have shown up the national media for the shallow drive-by propagandists they are) and careful analysis primarily by conservative bloggers allow us to put together a plausible hypothesis of the actual plan Smollett had in mind — a plan that could have worked and catapulted him into the ranks of civil rights heroes, political influencers, and multimedia superstars.
    Of course, I must include the disclaimer that all the facts are not yet on the table and that we can't say with 100% certainty that Smollett hoaxed us. So, yes, he is innocent until proven guilty in a court of law, and what follows is supposition based on unofficial information. That said, we're not morons, so we can put two and two together and tentatively infer what the plan was.
    John Nolte of Breitbart has done exactly that in a must-read article.
    The most important dot to connect to all ... comes from Smollett himself, who told Good Morning America (GMA) last week that he suspected a surveillance camera caught the whole incident.
    Speaking to GMA's Robin Roberts, Smollett said, "And I looked up and I saw there was a camera directly on the light post that is in the intersection. So I'm like, 'there it is!' ... And then the detective told me that the camera inside of the casing was facing north, so they didn't have it, and that was disappointing."

    That detail appears to stick in his craw. Later in the interview, unprompted, he brings it up again: "The camera facing north, how is that my issue?"

    Here is the full 16-minute interview. (Roberts's softball approach to a story that already had big holes showing is already causing her grief.)



    So it appears that Smollett intended the staged attack to be recorded but botched the location because he did not realize that the CCTV surveillance camera was pointed in the opposite direction. Recall that the Nigerian brothers — one an extra on his show, the other his personal trainer — reportedly rehearsed the attack with Smollett, meaning that this professional actor was probably able to stage a convincing video. The very night of the failed staging for the surveillance camera, Smollett has just returned from New York City, where he had performed hours before a startlingly similar scenario, as the U.K. Daily Mail reports:
    DailyMail.com has learned that Smollett landed in Chicago shortly after midnight following a lengthy plane delay out of LaGuardia.
    He had been in New York City for a reading of the play Take Me Out, with sources telling DailyMail.com that Smollett was being considered to appear in a possible revival of the Tony-winning production about a biracial baseball star who comes out as gay.
    The script for that play finds the lead character being attacked by a new pitcher who joins the team. That character uses the same racial slurs Smollett told police his attackers screamed at him, including 'f-----' and 'n-----.'
    Nolte continues:
    [I]t's easy to see what he could have gained — had the altercation occurred in front of any of the other cameras he walked past that night.

    First off, he despises Trump and, it seems, Trump's supporters, and this was an easy way to smear both, especially in a world with a corrupt media that is always eager to spread any kind of fake news or hoax that makes Trump or his supporters look evil.

    There is also Smollett's debut album, which is scheduled to hit store shelves on March 2, and the live performances promoting the album, which began just a few days after the attack. ...
    Imagine what it would have done to this country and to the city of Chicago if the attack had been recorded, if an outlet like TMZ had leaked the video, and if the wildly irresponsible race baiters at CNN had broadcast that video over and over and over again — an endless loop of two men assaulting a gay, black man; pouring bleaching [sic] on him and tying a noose around his neck.
    It would have been just like that other media hoax — "Hands Up, Don't Shoot" — and we all know what that led to: the destruction of a predominantly black neighborhood in the ensuing riots.
    Those of us old enough to remember the 1992 riots in Los Angeles triggered by endless broadcasts of the (edited) tape of police officers beating Rodney King understand the potential for civil strife had similar media treatment been possible for the fictional "MAGA attack." Would the Chicago Police Department have been able to devote major resources to investigating the signs of hoax had video been available? Consider the demonization heaped upon skeptics of Smollett's tale, claims that they were victimizing him again. Video evidence would have closed the case, in my opinion. Police superintendent Eddie Johnson likely would have denied requests to investigate any of the red flags in Smollett's tale had the city been wracked by riots.
    It almost worked, but for Smollett choosing the wrong CCTV camera for his stunt. Now it is a crisis for Kamala Harris, Cory Booker, Robin Roberts, and many other pols (like Nancy Pelosi, who deleted her tweet on the attack) and media figures who jumped on the incident, accepting Smollett's tale as gospel and victimizing me and every other Trump-supporter.

    I was always told that if one decides to walk through a pasture, do it during the day and keep your eyes open. If not, ya just don't know what you'll step in. Too bad nobody told that city boy that little story.

    Jussie Smollett Fallout Continues: Hospital Workers Fired Over ‘Inappropriate’ Handling to Smollett Records

    by Nan and Byron McKeeby March 7, 2019 9 Comments

    Just when you thought the Jussie Smollett hoax couldn’t do more harm, hospital employees have been fired over Smollett’s patient files being “inappropriately accessed.”
    The Northwestern Memorial Hospital employee thought nothing of it when a coworker walked over to her desk and asked if “Empire” actor Jussie Smollett had been admitted under an alias.
    Now, the employee — an administrator with an advanced degree — is out of a job, after she was told she’d inappropriately accessed Smollett’s records, violating hospital rules.
    The administrator, who didn’t want her name used, told the Chicago Sun-Times she was stunned by her dismissal — and she suspects others may have been fired or disciplined for doing the same thing.
    This is all Jussie’s fault.

    Chicago Police Union Wants A Federal Investigation Into City’s Prosecutor Over Her ‘Interference’ In Jussie Smollett Case


    Ohh, this could get good.
    Via Daily Wire:
    Chicago’s Fraternal Order of Police is officially requesting a federal investigation into whether the Cook County State’s Attorney, Kim Foxx, tried to interfere into the department’s investigation of “Empire” star Jussie Smollett on behalf of a former Obama administration official.
    CWB Chicago, which has covered the Smollett case from the beginning, reports that Chicago’s police union requested the investigation in a letter to John R. Lausch, the U.S. Attorney in Chicago on Monday.
    Smollett is accused of staging a “hate crime” outside his Chicago apartment in the early morning hours of January 29, 2019. Smollett claimed to have been assaulted by two white men who beat him, tied a noose around his neck, and splashed him with bleach, before yelling “This is MAGA country” and running off. After an intense investigation involving at least a dozen Chicago Police Department officers, CPD announced that they believed Smollett orchestrated the attack with the help of two friends, brothers he’d met on the set of his hit television show.
    Smollett was charged with “disorderly conduct,” but only after Cook County State’s Attorney Kim Foxx recused herself for reasons that went unspecified until last week.
