Kamala Harris Jussie Smollett Modern Day Lynching

Kamala Harris was completely caught off guard when asked by a reporter about ‘Empire’ actor Jussie Smollett’s alleged hate hoax, after she called it a “modern day lynching” prior to Chicago police expressing doubt in the truthfulness of Smollett’s narrative.

Harris was questioned by media about whether she was too hasty regarding her remarks on the alleged hate crime hoax perpetrated by Smollett now that police have cast serious doubts on Smollett’s version of events.

On Twitter, the Democrat presidential candidate previously called the attack on Smollett “an attempted modern day lynching,” adding “we must confront this hate.” A Fox News reporter asked Harris whether she regretted the tweet, catching Harris off guard.

“Which tweet? What tweet?” Harris asked in response to the question. When the reporter started to clarify her question, Harris looked toward her campaign staff and laughed awkwardly.

Harris then elaborated with a rambling answer, “So I will say this about that case: I think that the facts are still unfolding, and I’m very concerned about obviously,” interrupting herself with several pauses and stammers before trailing off.

While Harris’s excuse of “the facts are still unfolding” may have been good enough for Fox News, it is worth noting that she first tweeted about the alleged hate crime only hours after it happened.

Smollett, an actor on the TV show ‘Empire’, claimed that he was beaten and attacked with bleach and a rope by two white men wearing Make America Great Again hats. Smollett refused to give police his cell phone, which could have proven his series of events, and refused further contact with the police.

After investigating, the Chicago Police Department revealed it believes the crime to be a hoax perpetuated by Smollett to persuade the producers of ‘Empire’ to keep his character in the show.

Big League Politics reported:

According to a Fox News reporter, “Empire” star Jussie Smollett is no longer considered a victim in what he alleged was a hate crime orchestrated against him by Trump supporters.

“CPD Spox: Jussie Smollett is no longer considered a victim in this case,” said Mike Tobin on Twitter.

Originally, Smollett claimed that he was attacked in the early morning by racist and homophobic Trump supporters who yelled slurs and “This is MAGA country” while they tied a rope around his neck, beat him, and poured bleach on him. Saturday, Chicago Police confirmed that his alleged “attackers” two Nigerian friends of Smollett’s, both extras on “Empire,” purchased the rope. There are unconfirmed reports that Smollett paid them to perpetrate the hoax.

While these facts already persuaded Democrat House Speaker Nancy Pelosi to delete her tweet decrying the fictional hate crime, Harris appears to be doubling down.

DESPERATION: Never Trumpers Float Romney/Bloomberg as ‘the Unity Ticket America Deserves’

How pathetic are these guys?

Published

on

The “Never Trump” brain trust over at The Bulwark has unveiled their antidote to stop the President they hate so much in this year’s election: a “unity ticket” consisting of Sen. Mitt Romney (R-UT) as a presidential candidate and former New York City Mayor Michael Bloomberg as his running mate.

Author Neal Simon made the argument that this potential third-party ticket would appeal to independents in an op/ed published on Monday.

“Senator Romney’s entrance into the presidential race wouldn’t just give the vital center of the electorate a home—it would stand a chance to break a system that is stacked against independents and third party candidates,” Simon argued.

He compared Romney’s potential to that of French President Emmanuel Macron, the reviled ruler who has populist Yellow Vest protesters rioting against his unpopular style of governance every weekend.

“And as Emmanuel Macron showed in France, standing up a new party and winning a presidential election in one motion is not impossible,” Simon wrote.

Simon posited that by putting Bloomberg on his ticket as Vice President, Romney could essentially buy the election, which is what Bloomberg is basically trying to do right now with his run for the Democratic presidential nomination.

“A Romney-Bloomberg ticket would be a first in modern American politics: A bipartisan unity ticket running under the banner of an independent third party,” he wrote.

Simon’s premise is predicated off of an assumption that Sen. Bernie Sanders (I-VT) will win the Democrat presidential nomination. He believes that populism taking over the Republican and Democrat parties would open the door for a centrist revolution that could be led by Romney and Bloomberg.

“It would give both disgruntled Republicans who feel their party has become lost in Trump’s personality cult and Democrats who feel their party is lurching too far left towards a socialist revolution a voice on the ballot that reflects a popular idea of how the country should be run,” he concluded.

Simon, who was a failed independent candidate in the state of Maryland for the U.S. Senate in 2018, recently published a book titled, “Contract to Unite America: Ten Reforms to Reclaim Our Republic.” He is using the words of George Washington in his manifesto to defeat the new age of populist politics and return to the days of old.

“Capitalizing on personal insight derived from Simon’s political campaign along with extensive research, Contract to Unite America provides specific, practical solutions for an improved government and a better tomorrow,” Simon’s book description reads.

Unfortunately for Simon and the “Bulwark” neocons, the public has had enough of status quo politicians and does not want to return to the George W. Bush era. The dream ticket of Romney/Bloomberg is not likely to come to fruition.
