The Word of the Day is ‘Hostage’

Published

on

As the Democrats accuse President Donald J. Trump of “manufacturing a crisis” at the border, they have manufactured one of their own: Trump, they say, is holding federal employees and their paychecks “hostage.”

The word has been used by Democrat politicians and talking heads over and over on the air of cable news shows, in live press conferences, and on the internet. Clearly, it is the talking point they were given, and told to stick with. Here is a sampling:

There are more examples, but you are probably getting the message right now. America is in the midst of a hostage situation! Nearly one million federal employees are being held hostage by the Trump administration! They are hostages!

Ask yourself: Who is really manufacturing a crisis here?

Jussie Smollett Charged By Special Prosecutor For Chicago Hate Hoax

Smollett won’t get off the hook after all.

Published

on

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.
