Chicago actor Jussie Smollett was charged by a Cook County special prosecutor with six counts of disorderly conduct related to lying to the police on Tuesday. Dan Webb, a former U.S attorney appointed by Judge Michael Toomin, announced the charges as the result of a grand jury investigation.
Smollett had appeared to escape criminal repercussions for a hoax he orchestrated of January 2019, in which he paid two Nigerian brothers to play the role of Trump supporters and “attack” him in a fake racially charged event. Smollett was originally charged by prosecutors with filing a fake police report, but evaded punishment when a suspect district attorney ordered the charges dropped on the basis of Smollett’s supposed community service.
But he won’t use his ‘get out of jail free’ card after all. Webb was appointed by Judge Toomin six months ago to investigate the circumstances surrounding the suspicious dropping of Smollett’s charges. In a statement, the special prosecutor explained his decision to file new criminal charges against Smollett for his orchestration of the hoax.
““The grand jury’s investigation revealed that Jussie Smollett planned and participated in a staged hate crime attack, and thereafter made numerous false statements to Chicago Police Department officers on multiple occasions, reporting a heinous hate crime that he, in fact, knew had not occurred.”
A statement from Smollett’s lawyers in light of the new criminal charges goes to show the former Empire actor isn’t thrilled that he’s going back to court to face accountability for his dishonest publicity stunt.
Smollett is set to appear in a Cook County courthouse on February 24th.
Stanford University Babies Demand “Removal” of College Republicans from Campus
A new low of intolerance.
Left-wing crybabies at Stanford University are demanding that the school’s College Republicans chapter be wholly removed from campus in a new article for the campus newspaper, citing a laundry list of violations against the liberal religion. The appeal for deplatforming was made in an article in the Stanford Daily.
Stanford CR’s are known as a strong America First chapter of the organization, refusing the bow before the establishment College Republicans’ modus operandi of insider connections and backroom deals with political power brokers.
California College Republicans are pledging to fight back, refusing to cave as the Stanford Daily’s Claire Dinshaw demands the Stanford College Republicans be purged from campus. Dinshaw describes herself as a senior at the elite university minoring in political science and feminism, gender and sexuality studies.

The Stanford Republicans responded to the display of intolerance on Friday.
Dinshaw cites the standard university-liberal schpiel of “racist, misogynistic and hateful rhetoric” in her censorship demand, in addition to claiming supposed “transphobic rhetoric.” Dinshaw also refers to incidences of the Stanford College Republicans fighting back against Antifa-style thugs who have attempted to disrupt their events, claiming that publicizing the identities of left-wing militants who have tried to destroy their materials and presentations represents some sort of mortal threat to their lives.
Dinshaw’s political purge demand may be facilitated by Stanford’s status as a private university, where left-wing managerial elites are free to silence and censor anyone who they deem a threat to liberal hegemony. However, the academic integrity of Stanford will be revealed as little more than a sham if university administrators cave to her demands, with free expression reserved for recitations of left-wing ideas.
