Jesse Jackson’s Group Defiant On Jussie: ‘There Was No Court-Ordered Community Service Here’

Published

on

Jesse Jackson’s Rainbow PUSH Coalition issued a defiant statement late Tuesday night, after the Cook County court dropped hate-hoax charges against actor Jussie Smollett in return for his 16 hours of community service with the Coalition. Smollett faked a hate crime against himself, falsely accusing President Trump supporters of attacking him on the subway and putting a noose around his neck.

The Rainbow PUSH Coalition is making it clear now that Smollett’s service with the group was not “court-ordered.” This statement further illustrates Democrat defiance, rather than conciliation, in the Smollett hoax, as we learn that Michelle Obama’s former chief of staff Tina Tchen intervened with Cook County state’s attorney Kim Foxx to keep Jussie out of jail. George Soros’ money largely landed Foxx in office in 2016.

Here is the Rainbow PUSH Coalition’s statement from Don Terry:

“The Rainbow PUSH Coalition is an international human rights/civil rights organization that is committed to advancing the human rights of all people.  When we first heard of Jussie Smollett’s crisis, we reached out to him and “Empire” to see if we could be helpful. Jussie met with us and has given of himself to our organization and the movement for social justice.

We have members and supporters across the country and around the world.  Many of our members and supporters give of themselves and their time to help achieve the goals of the organization.  Jussie is a member of our organization.  He, like many other members, has given of his time and talent and continues to do so.  During this period of disruption to his life and livelihood, Jussie has spent time here helping to advance this important work. There was no court-ordered community service here.

Media questions about the rationale for dismissing the charges against Jussie are best directed to his counsel and the Office of the State’s Attorney.  The prosecutors’ decision to dismiss the charges are the prosecutors alone, and Jussie should not be the one to defend the decision.  He has maintained his innocence from the very beginning.

At a time when our city is wrestling with excessive violence and unsolved homicides our resources and energies should be focused there. Any further questions about Jussie Smollett’s case should be directed to his lawyer.

We will continue to reach out to the challenges in our community. We will not stop until there is peace and justice for all.”

Rainbow PUSH Coalition statement ends

Kim Foxx, the Cook County state’s attorney who had a text interaction with Michelle Obama’s former chief of staff Tina Tchen in the Jussie Smollett case, admitted that Democrat senator Kamala Harris provides mentoring to Foxx in her efforts in Cook County, Illinois. Smollett’s charges were dropped in Chicago in return for his community service with Jesse Jackson’s Rainbow PUSH Coalition.

“I’m so excited that Kamala Harris 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,” Foxx tweeted on January 21.

Texas Political Establishment Attempts to Derail Shelley Luther’s Campaign

Published

on

The special election for Texas’ Senate District 30 is on pace to be one of the most heated races in the Lone Star State.

At a candidate forum on September 18, 2020, Shelley Luther, the Dallas salon owner who was jailed for opening her business in defiance of Governor Greg Abbott’s shutdown order, confronted outgoing State Senator Pat Fallon.

Fallon vacated his seat and is now backing a successor in State Representative Drew Springer.

“We don’t want somebody who’s going to be at odds with our Republican governor,” Fallon said September 18 at the Grayson County Republican Women’s Club.

Fallon added:

I didn’t support some of the things that he has done about opening up. … So, he’s made some mistakes. He’s our Republican governor, the 80/20 rule … because you’re not going to get any bills passed unless the governor signs them.

“Let me make something clear. I am accountable to my fellow citizens in Senate District 30. Not our Governor,” Luther responded on September 19 on Facebook:

This is exactly what is wrong with Austin. Our politicians are more loyal to Abbott than us, even when they disagree with him.

I will work with Governor Abbott when he is fighting to protect the liberty of Texans, and I will oppose him when he pushes unilateral dictates that shut down our local businesses.

Fallon and Luther had a tense exchange, which was caught on video.

“You want me to go all in on this race?” Fallon questioned Luther. “I have been 5 percent in on this race. You want me to go all in on it, I’m welcome to.”

“This has become a straight-up fight between Abbott and the ‘Kumbaya’ Professional Political Class vs. the grassroots and people who remember what limited government and principles should look like,” opined conservative activist Mike Openshaw.

“Respectfully, being willing to be jailed for fighting over-reaching government shows principle; that counts for something, Patrick,” Openshaw continued.

Luther has recently received endorsements from conservative Collin County Judge Chris Hill and Young Conservatives of Texas. Springer, on the other hand, received an endorsement from the Fort Worth Star-Telegram, which asserted that Luther was going down a “far right” path.

A Republican is expected to carry the senate district, which may still require a runoff if the leading candidate does not get enough votes during the first round of the special election.

Election Day will be on September 29.

Luther is viewed as the truly conservative option and many believe she could help break the political status quo in Austin that has kept conservative legislation from ever being passed.
