A reminder that TODAY was supposed to be the next court date in the #JussieSmollett matter, but everything was quickly wrapped up and sealed in an "emergency hearing" weeks ago.
Foxx previously said she recused herself for speaking with a "potential witness" in the case. Now, she recused herself for speaking with a family member who (as far as we know) did not witness the incident.
Minutes before 5 p.m. on March 25th, Smollett attorney and prosecutors exchange emails with "letters of support" and "evidence of community involvement." Less than 18 hours later, the case would be resolved and sealed from public view.

Aight. Took a good nap. Got some pizza comin'. And Ima gonna read these Kim Foxx #JussieSmollett emails. Pizza guy best be bringing my orange Crush, too, 'cuz I ain't work overnight.
Day after #JussieSmollet reported attack, "Color of Change" asks for top-level phone call “regarding the racist and homophobic attack that left actor/activist Jussie Smollett in the hospital yesterday. This attack is personal for us…" They get one with Foxx staff within 4 hours.
February 13: Email from top deputy April Perry announces Foxx is "recused" from the #JussieSmollett case. The "recusal" is now known to be "colloquial" and not "legal." Perry is leaving Foxx's office for private practice, per sources.

Thread: (1/5) Newly released texts and emails show SA Kim Foxx was very much involved in #jussiesmollett case and not at all “recused”. Foxx and her staff paid very close attention to all media reports written about the case, sharing articles via text.
(2:5) Foxx: “Sooo....I’m recused, but when people accuse us of overcharging...16 counts on a class 4 felony becomes exhibit A. Pedophile with 4 victims 10 counts [#RKelly]. Washed up celeb who lied to cops, 16. (Cont).
(3/5) More from Foxx on #jussiesmollett: “On a case eligible for deferred prosecution I think it’s indicative of something we should be looking at generally. Just because we can charge someone doesn’t mean we should.” (Cont)

The State's Attorney's FOIA office sent a huge document dump of internal communications related to the #JussieSmollett case.

Here's Kim Foxx to her top deputy, complaining that Smollett's 16-count indictment was excessive:
I've reached out to ask why Foxx was talking to her colleague about the case if she was in fact "walled off"/recused. Haven't yet heard back.
It is fairly common to charge one crime in several different ways, and eventually drop a ton of counts right before trial. But it was a lot more common in the Alvarez administration; Foxx's office has been pushing to de-emphasize that.

Has anyone noticed that the shilling on the board drops when #MAGACoalition is doing their livestreams? Suddenly all the inorganic jew hate goes away.

They even use a fake anti-jew MAGA Glowalition meme when they spam their Jew-Hate every bread.
They don't even try to hide it on the boards.
They get called out as @realDougStewart, @Jared_T_Swift, @Gingrich_of_PA, Glen, Ginger, & so on directly. Their response to calling out their fake jew hate to make the boards look bad is to act more ridiculous but no one goes with it.
They're not only the only ones posting that anti-semitic crap, like the protocols of Zion spammed at the top of eeeevery fucking breeeeead... They even use their same buzzwords and talking points.

Then they turn around and try to blame us for their shitposting.
it's divisive.

Media attorneys are back this morning to try and get the #JussieSmollett file unsealed. Citing major public interest in the case contrasted with the secretive way things went down last week (and Foxx’s back-and-forth on which records were supposed to be sealed in the first place)
There is a new law allowing for immediate sealing in circumstances like Smollett’s, but it doesn’t REQUIRE that sealing. In Smollett’s case, defense requested it, prosecutors did not object and the judge didn’t push back.
Here’s the thing — the file itself is not gonna be that interesting. The case was so new that the file was super thin.

BUT — agencies (ie CPD) are using the sealing order as an excuse to not release other records under FOIA.

1. If you are reporting on @KimFoxxforSA & the resistance that she is getting from police, you MUST realize that DA'S exercising discretion INDEPENDENTLY is a "reform" in #Chicago. Before Foxx, generations of SAs were intimidated by #police.
2. They were taught to NEVER question an officer even if a suspect was dead. They gave"deference" and "respect" of officers, and relinquished their discretion to officers. To question an officer, was a sign of "disrespect." They called it prosecuting with "blinders" on.
3. If a SA did not "step in line" to these rules, police would stop coming for trials & blacklist them in the office. Whistle blowers had cases taken from them and upper management would participate in this. One manager threw an ashtray at a DA when he tried to whistle-blow

ICYMI: Saturday Night Live aired a skit mocking the Jussie Smollett #HateHoax fiasco:
Comedian @idrisstv made a funnier Jussie Smollett skit IMO with a fraction of the budget and a skeleton crew. It includes the Subway sub & the Nigerian brothers. Note: Curse words in clip:
The Daily Show aired a #JussieSmollett life time movie parody. #GayTupac

“White privilege” is another pseudo-academic attempt to pathologize white people, while reducing privilege to a single variable. It’s a term of bad faith.

Racial privilege exists, but it’s one of many variables — and not exclusively white.

#MyWhitePrivilege
A test of good faith: is the term used with other ethnicities or just with one racial group? How does it sound to replace white with [insert other ethnicity] privilege?
No one’s pathologized “rich privilege,” which seems much more meaningful in today’s world. Odd.

Saying the dismissal of charges against #JussieSmollett proves white privilege is a myth is like saying your 89-year old aunt who's been smoking 70 years and doesn't even cough proves cigarettes don't cause cancer. Anecdote, I have some quantitative data I'd like you to meet

#VoteRedToSaveAmerica

Understand the forces behind this two tiered, BUSTED "Justice" system — Michelle Obama's former Chief of Staff and a Soros-paid State Attorney!

Talk about elitism — any ordinary American would be in prison on a felony charge!

No justice! No peace!
IMPORTANT to understand exactly how much #GeorgeSoros influences our political landscape with his media empire & political influence campaigns, which have real consequences in our daily lives & communities — NOT just Presidential races! #JussieSmollett

After we witnessed such flagrant display of corruption in Chicago w the #JussieSmolett hoax, we asked ourselves...

Does Prosecutor @SAKimFoxx have any connection to @DNC?

The answer is not surprising.

Does #JussieSmollettHoax Prosecutor @SAKimFoxx @KimFoxxforSA have any connection to @DNC?

Yes.

This corruption is why @realDonaldTrump won 2016 & why he will win 2020. Drain The Swamp is more than a slogan...it’s a TO-DO LIST!

Does Prosecutor @SAKimFoxx @KimFoxxforSA in Chicago who let #JussieSmollettHoax off the hook for 16 FELONY COUNTS of faking a hate crime, have any connections to @DNC?

“It’s not what you know but who you know.”

Corruption is alive & well. The elite live above the law...

One of the most important and fascinating aspects of the #JussieSmollett case is that the Cook County prosecutors are completely out of step, not just with the Chicago police, but with the collective opinion of Hollywood, liberals, and the mass media.
Smollett never became another “Trayvon” martyr, which was his desire. The political and cultural Establishments washed their hands of him and treated him as a cautionary tail.
From the Establishment's perspective, it would've been wise to let Smottett be punished and continue on with its crusade against "real racism." Instead, it created a situation in which the justice system is viewed as brazenly hypocritical, anti-White, partisan, and unserious.
