The “Empire” actor who allegedly staged a fake hate crime and lied to police, racking up 16 separate felony charges in the process, is now a free man facing no legal challenges after a district attorney determined he already did community service.
Reports indicate Jussie Smollett has already been released, and that the only penalty for his alleged crimes will be forfeiting a $10,000 bond. District attorney Kim Foxx chose to drop the charges because she believed Smollett would have only been punished with community service if found guilty, and that Smollett had already done community service in the past.
TMZ notes that it could find no evidence of Smollett’s previous community service.
Foxx is the same district attorney who local authorities want investigated by federal authorities, after she allegedly attempted to stop the hate hoax investigation.
The Chicago-area Fraternal Order of Police are questioning whether Foxx sought to have the investigation stunted by requesting that the local authorities hand the case over the FBI.
Foxx, the elected State’s Attorney for Cook County, then recused herself from the case in the thick of the investigation in February, citing “familiarity” with individuals involved in the incident.
Seeking to place an investigation into the hate hoax in the hands of the FBI could have been an effective plan to hush up the incident.
Big League Politics also reported that Foxx attempted to involve the FBI after being asked to do so by former First Lady Michelle Obama’s White House chief of staff:
According to USA Today, Tina Tchen, who worked as Obama’s chief of staff during her time in the White House, reached out to Chicago prosecutor Kim Foxx by text message in early February. She requested that the Chicago police hand over the case to the FBI for them to pursue federal hate crime charges. When she received a positive response from Foxx, Tchen then relayed the information to one of Smollett’s relatives who said the move would be a “victory” for the family.
Smollett claims he was attacked by two white men wearing ‘Make America Great Again’ hats who poured bleach over him and attempted to lynch him while shouting “MAGA country.” The FBI would have investigated based on these claims.
Confusingly, Foxx had previously recused herself from the case according to reports. It is not known when she became involved in the case again, or what led her to determine Smollett’s previous community service would be a sufficient punishment if he were found guilty.
This case represents more evidence that there is a two-tiered standard of justice in this country.
Anti-Trump Democrat actors can be released with absolutely no punishment after allegedly lying to police for weeks, causing them to waste their time and taxpayer money, while also misleading the entirety of America in an attempt to smear President Donald J. Trump, but a sitting president can undergo a two year investigation while being smeared as a Russian agent by media figures and politicians only to be completely exonerated by the final findings with no recourse for those investigated, or those who cheer leaded the waste of taxpayer time and money.
As the Global Economy Craters, Bill Gates Buys New Oceanfront Mansion for $43 Million
Gates lives the high life while the rest of us suffer.
Technocratic oligarch Bill Gates is living high on the hog while the global economy crashes, picking up another mansion at the height of the coronavirus pandemic to add to his collection.
Gates purchased a $43 million beach home in Del Mar, Calif. with his wife Melinda last week. He bought the palatial estate from Madeleine Pickens, the widow of deceased oil baron T. Boone Pickens, which includes six bedrooms and four bathrooms in a lavish 5,800-square-foot home.
Architect Ken Ronchetti designed the home in 1999, and it is supposedly considered “one of the most prominent coastal contemporary beach homes on the West Coast.”
“Wide windows throughout the living spaces open to the back patio, offering a seamless flow between the indoor and outdoor spaces. The large patio also provides awe-inspiring vistas of the Pacific Ocean,” Realtor.com wrote in their description of the property.
“Rich wood ceilings throughout the home evoke the feeling of being on an island, and the gorgeous pool beckons, should the owners desire to take a break from the salty ocean water,” they added.
Gates newest beach home accompanies his primary compound in Medina, Wash., a garish horse property in Rancho Santa Fee, Calif., and a massive plot of land in Wellington, Fla., which is considered the equestrian capital of the state.
Gates isn’t the only oligarch flaunting his extreme wealth during the greatest economic calamity since the Great Depression. Amazon CEO Jeff Bezos is also piling up many more billions due to human suffering.
Reports have indicated that Bezos has added a stunning $24 billion to his personal wealth throughout the coronavirus pandemic:
While many businesses are suffering during the global coronavirus crisis, Jeff Bezos is flourishing. In the midst of the backlash Amazon is facing due to its alleged treatment of employees, Bezos’ wallet remains obscenely healthy. As of last week, his net worth has reportedly increased by five percent, or better put, by a staggering $23.6 billion.
Over the last months, Amazon has seen a rise in demand as its customer base continues to self-isolate. To cope with the surge of orders, it has already hired thousands of new employees and aims to hire an additional 175,000. It has also pledged to prioritize essential items such as sanitizers and baby formula.
However, the increase in workforce has been met with controversy. Amazon has been repeatedly accused of failing to protect its staff from Covid-19 by not providing enough face masks, not implementing regular temperature checks as promised, and refusing paid sick leave.
Amazon has fired employees who’ve publicly criticized the company for its coronavirus response; the National Labor Relations Board (NLRB) is currently looking into these claims. Last week, the New York Post reported that an Amazon warehouse employee had passed away from the virus.
“We are calling out because Amazon is putting its revenue above our safety,” Jaylen Camp, an Amazon worker told The Guardian. “We are not essential to them – they just think of us as numbers and quotas. They are not protecting our health.” This failure is leading to huge warehouse strikes after over 130 Amazon warehouses in the US have contracted the virus, leading to more than 30 confirmed cases.
Gates can now enjoy beautiful oceanfront scenery to help inspire his vaccine-pushing schemes worldwide, as he regurgitates Chinese propaganda.
