    Here Are The Many Celebrities Who Bankroll Jussie Fixer Tina Tchen’s TIME’S UP Legal Defense Fund

    Former Michelle Obama chief of staff Tina Tchen intervened on Obama friend Jussie Smollett’s behalf, texting with Cook County prosecutor Kim Foxx before a sweetheart deal led to Smollett’s charges being dropped in return for 16 hours of community service with Jesse Jackson’s Rainbow PUSH Coalition. Smollett faked an attempted lynching of himself by fictional President Trump supporters. (READ: Rainbow PUSH Defiant on Jussie).
    Tchen is also the co-founder and effectively the leader of the TIME’S UP Legal Defense Fund, which she claimed raised $21 million in its first 100 days of existence. Tchen made that claim in a 2018 speech alongside Jussie Smollett’s sister Jurnee, who, like Jussie, has known the Obamas for years.
    The TIME’S UP Legal Defense Fund offers “Media and Storytelling Assistance” for sexual harassment accusers through the public relations firm SKDKnickerbocker, which has represented Barack Obama and employs members of his former administration.
    Luckily, the TIME’S UP Legal Defense Fund’s first annual report lists the numerous Hollywood celebrities who bankroll Tchen’s fund.

    TIME’S UP celebrity “Founding Donors” include:
    J.J. Abrams, Jennifer Aniston, Sandra Bullock, Steven Spielberg’s foundation, Creative Artists Agency, Melinda Gates, Jeffrey Katzenberg, Meryl Streep, Shonda Rhimes, Cate Blanchett, Seth Meyers, Natalie Portman, Reese Witherspoon, the “Go Fund Me team,” Taylor Swift, Oprah Winfrey, Nicole Kidman, John Legend, Kate Winslet, Chelsea Handler, Anne Hathaway, Salma Hayek, Facebook’s Sheryl Sandberg, Aziz Ansari, Patricia Arquette, Elizabeth Banks, Lena Dunham, Rosario Dawson, and Jane Fonda.

    Here are some highlights from the National Women’s Law Center’s write-up of its own 2018 gala, which featured the Time’s Up Legal Defense Fund (emphasis added):

    “We heard from TIME’S UP Co-Founder, actress, and writer Amber Tamblyn, who read an original poem, “What I Will Be,” a tribute to Dr. Christine Blasey Ford. In her powerful verses, Tamblyn galvanized us: “What I will be is an eruption of movement/ the vitals of vindication/ a momentum brave.”…
    We heard from Dr. Blasey Ford’s attorneys, Debra Katz and Lisa Banks, who spoke of the fortifying effect the voices of survivors across the country had on Dr. Blasey Ford as she prepared to give her testimony in the face of extreme pressure.
    Anita Hill joined us with a video message, speaking about her own experience testifying before the Senate Judiciary Committee 27 years ago, and thanking the millions of survivors who have come forward since…
    CNN Political Commentator Symone Sanders took the stage….
    Lifelong advocate Tina Tchen introduced the first-ever President & CEO of TIME’S UP, Lisa Borders. Lisa gave her first speech in her new role, emphasizing the hurdles and opportunities that lie ahead.”


    National Women’s Law Center passage ends
    Tchen, who intervened on Jussie Smollett’s behalf with Cook County prosecutor Kim Foxx, spoke side-by-side with Jussie Smollett’s sister Jurnee at the May 5, 2018 United State of Women Summit in Los Angeles, California.
    Tchen bragged that the TIME’S UP Legal Defense Fund raised about $21 million in 100 days.
    Disgraced hate-crime hoaxer Jussie Smollett has longstanding ties to the Obamas.


    Cook County state’s attorney Kim Foxx is pulling a favor for the Obamas by getting their “close friend” Jussie Smollett off with no charges. George Soros’ money largely helped put Foxx in office.
    “If Fox wants to be D.A. or go any further, she’s going to have to kiss the Obamas’ ass,” our source in Chicago politics tells BLP.
    The Chicago Sun-Times confirmed it: “Foxx’s call to Johnson came after an influential supporter of the “Empire” actor reached out to Foxx personally: Tina Tchen, a Chicago attorney and former chief of staff for former First Lady Michelle Obama, according to emails and text messages provided by Foxx to the Chicago Sun-Times in response to a public records request.
    Tchen passed Foxx’s number to a relative of the actor, and the ensuing conversations with the family member were cited by Foxx last month as the reason she recused herself from Smollett’s prosecution as the actor faces disorderly conduct charges for allegedly making a false police report.
    Text messages show Tchen contacted Foxx on Feb. 1, three days after Smollett said he was jumped by two men as he walked home from a sandwich shop near his Streeterville home. Tchen texted Foxx to set up an early morning phone call.
    “I wanted to give you a call on behalf of Jussie Smollett and family who I know. They have concerns about the investigation,” Tchen wrote in a text sent before 5 a.m., seeking to set up a call with Foxx before Tchen left on an 8 a.m. flight to New York.
    A few hours later, Foxx received a text from a relative of Smollett, who said she’d received the number from Tchen.”
    Chicago Sun-Times passage ends
    Here is Jurnee Smollett-Bell’s Instagram post as Barack Obama was leaving office in January 2017:
    “Feeling a lot of emotions. I remember meeting then Senator @barackobama 9 years ago. I’d been invited to introduce him in Nevada during the primaries. He was the underdog, the odds were stacked against him. Said he was too young, too black, too different…he was an other. I’ve always been an other so I saw myself in him. My own relative told me I was wasting my time, going state to state, knocking on doors for this guy with the funny name. I can’t tell you how many people hung the phone up on my sister @jazzsmollettwarwell and me as we clocked in our hours, phone banking. Working as if this was a full time job, I worked for free, because this work was food for my soul. They whispered that you couldn’t do it. That we couldn’t do it. And then tried to block you even when we proved them wrong. TWICE. You will go down as the greatest president who did the most with the least help from his “congressional leaders”. So I thank you for being you. Unapologetically. Your very existence demanded that I take the limits off my own. Before you, I lived in a world of boundaries and limits. You were audacious enough to dream big, and demanded we dream even bigger. So thank you for all you’ve given us. We will keep dreaming, keeping fighting, keep knocking on doors, keep traveling and spreading the gospel truth. Because it never was about you, it was about us, the “others”. Yes we can. Yeswe did. Yes we will.#powertothepeople ✊🏽 #ThanksObama #tbt #mypresident
    And here is Jussie Smollett with Obama:

    Democrat presidential candidate Kamala Harris is a “mentor” to Kim Foxx, according to the Cook County prosecutor herself.

    Michelle Malkin is all over the web of connections among Jussie Smollett, various Smollett siblings, Chicago State’s Attorney Kim Foxx, Senator Kamala Harris, Tina Tchen, and the Obamas:
    Crony State: Obamas’ Chicago Fixer Tina Tchen
    By Michelle Malkin • March 27, 2019 11:19 AM
    How did hate crime huckster Jussie Smollett get away with it? All crooked roads in Chicago lead back to the Obamas.
    … And that brings us to the Democratic operatives behind the scenes. Two weeks ago, Chicago Sun-Times reporters discovered that Obama crony pal and deep-pocketed campaign finance mega-bundler Tina Tchen had inserted herself in the investigation. Tchen texted Cook County State’s Attorney Kim Foxx just three days after the incident “on behalf of Jussie Smollett and family who I know” to express “concerns.” She suggested that Foxx lean on Chicago Police Superintendent Eddie Johnson to yield to the FBI and she shared an unidentified Smollett’s family member’s cellphone number with Foxx.
    Tchen, who is approximately a 5’2″” East Asian woman, somehow qualifies as an Honorary Large-and-in-Charge Black Sister. Ever since January 21, 2017, Tchen has been getting all the jobs that you might think would go to a black woman, such as chairing the Grammy Awards task force to determine why Beyonce has only won 22 Grammys, and now she’s running the Southern Poverty Law Center’s self-investigation of whether or not Morris Dees said “I like chocolate” to one of the SPLC’s rare black women attorneys.
    I’m reminded of the disgraced ex-Obama Administration official who launched the Twitter hashtag #OscarsSoWhite in 2015 and has ridden it to a pleasant career traveling from one entertainment industry confab to another to be paid to demand more of what Tom Wolfe called Plaques for Blacks. But she is at least black, while Tchen is not. Here is Tchen with Valerie Jarrett:

    And, wow, you can totally see how Roseanne Barr’s Ambien-addled brain did not register that the Iran-born Jarrett, who appears to have had some work done and who now looks about as realistic as Kim Hunter as Zira in Planet of the Apes, is from the Talented Tenth, which got Roseanne immediately fired by the black lady who was briefly in charge of ABC, tanking the #1 show on TV. Jarrett looks like the median Beverly Hills matron, so no wonder Roseanne figured she was some kind of Israel-hating Iranian rather than one of America’s most sacred minority with the most Diversity Pokemon Points.
    Foxx texted back that she had done as requested and that Chief Johnson was “going to make the ask.” The unidentified relative rejoiced: “OMG this would be a huge victory.”
    Only after Foxx meddled did she recuse herself and name an underling to take over — which rendered her Kabuki recusal meaningless to veteran observers of the “Crook” County criminal justice system. So, who was the Smollett relative with all the right (or rather, left) connections? Follow the trail:
    –Tchen and Smollett’s sister, Jurnee Smollett-Bell, joined together in March 2018 at South by Southwest in Austin to proclaim that “There Is No Time’s Up Without Women Of Color.”
    Time’s Up is an effort to cash in on Weinsteingate, of which Tchen heads the legal defense fund.
    Here’s video of Jussie, his sister Jurnee, and Senator Kamala Harris standing shoulder-to-shoulder shouting “Time’s Up.”
    And that’s a good excuse for a picture of Jurnee Smollett.
    This Instagram video shows Jussie Smollett, Jurnee Smollett, & Sen. Kamala Harris shoulder-to-shoulder. The Smolletts are wearing "Times Up" t-shirts. That's a legal fund for cashing in on WeinsteinGate headed by Tina Tchen, Michelle O's CoS, who texted Kim Foxx to drop case. https://t.co/iJejGwv9Mg

    Interestingly, just as Jussie’s story was unraveling in mid-February, the new head of Tchen’s Time’s Up racket, former WNBA leader Lisa Borders, a black woman, had to resign due to family issues. From USA Today:
    LOS ANGELES – Lisa Borders says she has resigned as president and CEO of Time’s Up, the gender equality initiative formed last year in response to sexual misconduct allegations in Hollywood.
    Borders says in statement Monday that she is stepping aside “with deep regret” due to family issues. She didn’t elaborate….
    The organization was formed in January 2018 in response to sexual misconduct allegations leveled against powerful men in the entertainment industry including Harvey Weinstein and Kevin Spacey.
    To be precise, the Women of Hollywood did not exactly organize due to Kevin Spacey’s depredations. A friend with Show Biz roots whose ancestors had to deal with the young Spacey hanging around their house when he was in high school says, “Gramps describes his behavior as going around being a huge fag.” My friend asserts the Di Caprio role in the upcoming Tarantino movie is based on his Gramps:

    Borders’ “family issues” explanation for resigning from Feminist Avengers Inc. sounds bogus, but it wasn’t. According to an extremely detailed and embarrassing Los Angeles Times account:
    Borders stepped down four days after a 31-year-old Santa Monica woman alleged, in a Facebook post, that Borders’ 36-year-old son had been sexually inappropriate with her.
    Santa Monica is close to being the physical fitness capital of America, but what the point is of all that exercise seems to be lost on today’s 31-year-olds.
    Borders’ son is a Shakti massage therapist, which sounds pretty gay, but apparently he isn’t. In order that he could perform his “healing massage” on her, his friend the 31-year-old Reiki specialist came over to his house and disrobed. A normal male physiological response ensued, which ultimately cost Tchen’s front woman her job.
    So leave the Borders family out of the Smollett fiasco. They have enough problems of their own.
    Here’s Kim Foxx (who has nothing to do with Kim Fowley and Jackie Fox of The Runaways, nothing) and Kamala Harris:
    I’m so excited that @KamalaHarris has decided to run for president. I would not be where I am today without her guidance during my first run for political office, and she has continued to mentor me as I work to reform the criminal justice system in Cook County. —KF pic.twitter.com/O241FGKKMs

    Don't care that his sentence is community service and a fine, but he needs to admit guilt and say sorry. Allowing him and his cohorts to claim vindication now is the travesty. Pressure from the famous and the rich left, got us to where we are, but there is now blow back from other, not always right leaning, places.

    Police Organize Protest Against SA Kim Foxx, Illinois Prosecutors Bar Association Slams Her

    Just in: More fallout from Cook County prosecutors’ decision to drop #JussieSmollett charges: Chicago Fraternal Order of Police @FOP7Chicago planning a protest of Kim Foxx. @fox32news pic.twitter.com/ObCzosqGlB

    They make it very clear that this is not the usual way of doing things.
    CHICAGO (Fox 32 News) – The Illinois Prosecutors Bar Association has released a statement, ripping into State’s Attorney Kim Foxx’s handling and dismissal of the Jussie Smollett case.
    Read the full statement below:
    “The Illinois Prosecutors Bar Association serves as the voice for nearly 1,000 front line prosecutors across the State who work tirelessly towards the pursuit of justice. The events of the past few days regarding the Cook County State’s Attorney’s handling of the Jussie Smollett case is not condoned by the IPBA, nor is it representative of the honest ethical work prosecutors provide to the citizens of the State of Illinois on a daily basis.
    The manner in which this case was dismissed was abnormal and unfamiliar to those who practice law in criminal courthouses across the State. Prosecutors, defense attorneys, and judges alike do not recognize the arrangement Mr. Smollett received. Even more problematic, the State’s Attorney and her representatives have fundamentally misled the public on the law and circumstances surrounding the dismissal.
    The public has the right to know the truth, and we set out to do that here.
