New video released by the Chicago Police Department could conclusively nail Empire actor and suspected hate hoaxer Jussie Smollett dead to rights for orchestrating a hate crime hoax in January.
CCTV recordings show Smollett strolling down a street near his residence seconds before the brothers used as accomplices in his hoax can be seen on the same exact footage.
The Osundairo brothers, who have come clean and admitted that Smollett employed their services in a fake “assault” for publicity, walk down the cold and empty Chicago street a mere twenty-seven seconds before Smollett on tape.
An attorney representing the brothers- who have expressed remorse and regret for their involvement in the shameful hoax- explained the circumstances of the footage. The brothers apparently arrived too early on the late January night to stage the attack for Smollett’s liking, and were made to take an awkward stroll around the block before beginning the hoax event.
The brothers, two Nigerian bodybuilders, played the role of racist Trump supporters who doused gasoline and attacked Smollett in a flurry of hateful violence.
More footage released by the Chicago Police Department also exposes the unlikely nature of Smollett’s version of events.
Other surveillance camera footage of Smollett at his apartment lobby before his supposed “attack” shows the actor leaving an elevator with what appears to be an object resembling white rope around his neck.
Smollett had claimed that the racist Trump supporters wrapped the rope around his neck during the incident, engaging in an assault comparable to a lynching.
Obviously, if Smollett placed the white rope around his own neck before the hoax attack, such a claim would be transparently false.
Smollett escaped criminal charges related to his orchestration of the hoax due to his elite connections with Cook County prosecutors, much to the chagrin of a Chicago police union. But, it appears camera footage nails him dead to rights on the hoax, leaving the hate hoaxster thoroughly discredited in the court of public opinion.
Texas Governor Greg Abbott Pledges to Outlaw Big Tech Censorship
Texas has had enough.
Texas Governor Greg Abbott is pledging to outlaw Big Tech’s left-wing censorship, announcing his support of a bill in the Texas State Senate that would open social media monopolies to lawsuits from users at a state level.
State Senator Bryan Hughes Senate Bill 12 would provide legal recourse for users of Big Tech platforms who are banned from the services to return, designating Big Tech monopolies such as Twitter, YouTube and Facebook as common carriers.
“They are common carriers and they cannot discriminate against people … it’s a violation of the first amendment,” Hughes said. “This is going to protect Texas’ free speech and get them back online.”
I am joining @SenBryanHughes to announce a bill prohibiting social media companies from censoring viewpoints.

“These are the areas that used to be the courthouse square where people would come and talk,” said Abbott of the legislation. “Now, people are going to Facebook and Twitter to talk about their political ideas, and what Facebook and Twitter are doing — they are controlling the flow of information, and sometimes denying the flow of information.”
“Texas is taking a stand against big tech political censorship. We are not going to allow it in the Lone Star state.”
The law establishing legal recourse against online censorship may prove legally durable enough to avoid breaching Section 230 of the Communications Decency Act. That law provides immunity for user-created content on internet platforms, and doesn’t give social media platforms a right to discriminate against active or potential users on the basis of political ideology.
The future for fighting Big Tech censorship lies at a state level. While some state Republican officials have proven reluctant to separate themselves from the lucrative business lobbies of Big Tech oligarchs, Hughes’ approach seems legally innovative enough to give free speech defenders a fighting shot at free expression online.
