‘Modern-Day Lynching:’ Booker and Kamala Didn’t Wait for the Facts in the Jussie Smollett Case

Don’t hold your breath for apologies.

Published

Two 2020 presidential candidates, Sens. Cory Booker (D-N.J.) and Kamala Harris (D-Calif.) jumped at the opportunity to accuse ordinary Americans of harboring hatred for minorities in the wake of the attack on “Empire” actor Jussie Smollett.

“The vicious attack on actor Jussie Smollett was an attempted modern-day lynching. I’m glad he’s safe,” Booker said of the attack. “To those in Congress who don’t feel the urgency to pass our Anti-Lynching bill designating lynching as a federal hate crime– I urge you to pay attention.”

Harris had a similar message.

“This was an attempted modern day lynching,” she claimed. “No one should have to fear for their life because of their sexuality or color of their skin. We must confront this hate.”

As it turns out, the “crime” was neither a lynching attempt, nor motivated by race or sexuality. In fact, it was totally made up. Chicago police now believe that Smollett orchestrated the “attack” with two men, his “attackers.” Both are reportedly Nigerian nationals and extras on “Empire.”

Smollett’s story – that bigots yelling “this is MAGA country” beat him, wrapped a rope around his neck, and soaked him in bleach – conformed to the worldview of Harris and Booker perfectly. They believe that America is a fundamentally bad country filled with intolerant racists, and that only the progressive agenda can save America from the backwards people in “flyover country” who would commit a heinous crime like the one Smollett made up.

So they pounced (in the parlance of our times) without waiting for the facts to come to light, despicably seizing on the opportunity to race-bait, and to prove that their worldview is the correct one. They were wrong. Again.

Speaker of the House Nancy Pelosi (D-Calif.) gets a dishonorable mention, too.

“The racist, homophobic attack on is an affront to our humanity. No one should be attacked for who they are or whom they love. I pray that Jussie has a speedy recovery & that justice is served. May we all commit to ending this hate once & for all,” she Tweeted.

To be sure, these people do not care about Smollett, or even racism and homophobia. They care about virtue signaling to their idiotic progressive base to score cheap political points.

Fortunately for the Speaker, justice will be served. And Smollett will be on the losing end.

Biden Impresses U.S. Workers with ‘Buy America’ Push After Kushner Blocked Trump’s Economic Nationalist Order

Kushner is sabotaging Trump’s re-election chances.

Published

Trump backers are reportedly enraged as former vice president Joe Biden has unveiled his “Buy America” push, scoring points with the working class base that President Trump desperately needs to win re-election.

Biden proposed a plan this week that would spend $700 billion to revitalize the American economy and attempt to undo the tremendous damage done by the COVID-19 pandemic.

“This will be the largest mobilization of public investments in procurement, infrastructure and (research and development) since World War II,” Biden senior adviser Jake Sullivan said to the Associated Press to talk up the proposal.

Biden wants the government to spend an additional $400 billion to buy U.S.-based goods and services over the course of four years. His plan would spend another $300 million on research and development related to technology. He is also intending to revise current “Buy American” laws to end loopholes that help foreign firms.

“What’s going on here, we need to build back, not just to where we were but build back better than we’ve ever been,” Biden said to the International Brotherhood of Electrical Workers on Wednesday. “We’re going to take a monumental step forward for the prosperity, power, safety and dignity of all American workers.”

While Biden’s plan may be fluff, he has outflanked President Trump on the “Buy American” issue. Trump has reportedly had an “Economic Nationalism” executive order ready to be signed for months, but it has been stalled at the behest of globalists in his administration, namely his son-in-law Jared Kushner, White House economic adviser Larry Kudlow, and Treasury Secretary Steven Mnuchin.

It was widely reported back in March that White House trade advisor Peter Navarro had the executive order ready for the President to sign, but it was ultimately shelved because of resistance from within the administration.

Big Pharma also sent a letter to the administration lobbying against the America First order. They claimed the measure would “not only overestimate the potential feasibility and underestimate the time and effort it would take to make such changes, but also misunderstand that a diverse pharmaceutical supply chain is precisely what enables the industry to respond quickly and make adjustments in its supply chain sourcing during natural emergencies and global public health crises.”

Big League Politics has reported for years about how Kushner’s influence as senior advisor has undermined President Trump’s mandate:

CNN commentator Van Jones, who was once run from the Obama administration due to his communist ties, has been revealed as the man largely responsible for crafting President Donald Trump’s police reform executive order.

Jones is under heavy fire from left-wing media outlets for being willing to work with the Trump administration. The Daily Beast published an article bashing Jones for helping to “secretly craft the weak Trump police reform he praised on TV.”

They reported: “Jones and California human rights attorney Jessica Jackson, who runs #cut50, a prison-reform group that Jones also founded, actively participated with law enforcement officials and White House staffers to help fashion the order and guide the politics of the discussion to what they considered “the sweet spot” between law enforcement and “the reasonable middle” and “the reasonable left.”’

Jones has become a major influence on the Trump administration because of Trump son-in-law and senior advisor Jared Kushner. Kushner is a huge admirer of Jones, and has rolled out the red carpet for the communist to determine law enforcement policy for the White House.

“He was someone I’d seen on television, so I was deeply skeptical,” Kushner said to The Daily Beast. “But I said I’d be happy to speak to him, and we had a good chat. And then we just started working together. And what I saw, with him, was that he had a lot of courage, when other people play politics.”

“I find that in politics, people get in uncomfortable situations, and that’s when you get to see what a person’s character really is,” Kushner added. “And in a tough situation Van has shown me that he’s got true character. He’s focused on the right things.”

Kushner has pushed for Trump to abandon being the law-and-order President so he could let criminals out of jail instead to placate the Left. Placating the Left has not worked for the administration, as riots now lay waste to cities all over the country.

Kushner’s blundering could ultimately cost President Trump his re-election in November, as Biden leads on the issue of putting American workers first.
