Chicago police superintendent Eddie Johnson said Tuesday that actor Jussie Smollett would face consequences if found to have filed a fake police report on a supposed attack on himself by Trump-supporting bandits.
The police chief’s remarks could serve as the strongest indicator yet that the Chicago Police Department are treating the attack- in which Smollett claims he was mobbed by a group of men wearing MAGA hats and chanting abuse- with a sense of skepticism.
Police investigating the incident are said to be subpoenaing Smollett’s phone records, as the actor claimed to have been on the phone with his manager during the event. He’s thus far refused to allow police to examine his phone, possibly substantiating or disproving his claims.
Smollett also claimed that the attackers- who told him that “This is MAGA Country” in downtown Chicago- placed rope around his neck and doused him in a liquid substance. Investigators have determined that the rope Smollett claimed was used was recently purchased, and are inquiring with local retailers about sales of similar products.
Thus far no suspects have been positively identified for the attack. Smollett was on surveillance camera footage for all but a 60-second window on the night the alleged attack took place- meaning he was assaulted, doused with liquid, and roped around the neck within that time, all while “fighting back” against his attackers.
Filing a false police report is a class four felony in the state of Illinois, and can get you a jail sentence in addition to hefty fines.
Biden Rebuffs Advisors’ Demands to Censor OANN, Newsmax, Fox News By Executive Order
Biden advisors have sought to ban conservative media from federal housing.
According to a White House source, President Joe Biden has rebuffed suggestions that he sign an executive order that would ban certain conservative news networks from being broadcast to federal housing complexes.
The order would’ve named One America News Network, Newsmax, and Fox News by name. The former two networks are known for a broadly pro-Donald Trump editorial stance, with Fox split between establishment liberal and conservative content.
Authoritarian liberals advising President Biden are said to have suggested that Biden crack down on television and media networks which dissent from the administration’s policy views, citing the raucous US Capitol protest earlier this month as an imperative to clamp down on the opposition.
The executive order in question would most prominently affect military housing, where the cable channels in question are accessible through cable services contracted through the military services. The order, which never progressed beyond suggestions to President Biden, may even have gone so far as to restrict the television channels from private housing organizations contracted to provide lodging to military service members and their families.
Biden even went so far as to dismiss the censorship attempt as “nonsense,” according to a White House source familiar with the exchange. It’s likely that attempts to sign and enforce it would’ve been shut down by the judiciary, representing a clear attempt to discriminate against the very viewing of political expression within federal buildings.
As an authoritarian streak grows more prominent in the intolerant attitudes of American liberals, it appears President Biden himself is at least skeptical to the slightest degree of governmental censorship attempts, although Biden has never so much as even made reference to the censorship practices utilized by Big Tech companies against tens of millions of Americans.
