Jussie Smollett's Subway sandwich was
key to case, ex-Chicago police superintendent says

Actor Jussie Smollett was found guilty of lying to police last week after he claimed he was the victim of a hate crime in 2019 and, of all things, a Subway sandwich was a key piece of evidence in the case against him, the former Chicago police superintendent said, according to reports. Ex-Superintendent Eddie Johnson told NewsNationNow's "Morning in America" that Smollett left his home around 2 a.m. on the day he claimed to be attacked to buy the sandwich. "OK, that’s fine," Johnson said, adding that morning was one of the coldest in Chicago that year and hardly anyone was on the street.

Comments:

I thought his claim that his attackers just happened to have a rope tied like a noose with them was even more tell-tale, but this aspect was obvious also. They beat you up, poured bleach on you, but there was no harm to your sandwich? And you were eating it when cops arrived?

Jussie is so dumb that now "the plan" is that his lawyers will separate him from his last dollar while pretending he has a case on appeal.

Smollet's own attorneys will punish him for his crimes. They will play on his vanity (and apparent stupidity) and relieve him of as much of his wealth as they can through billable hours and retainers fees.

Will Jussie get one of those 'prison tats' of barbed wire around his biceps or neck maybe join a black gang for protection? Jussie just might gain some street creds after his stint in prison like in Shawshank redemption. Subway needs to invent a foot long Smollett sandwich just stale bread with nothing inside.

I never leave the house without at least some bleach on my person. But wasn't it originally claimed by him that his assailants recognized him as a gay black actor on "Empire"? That was a red flag for me. There are no "racist" MAGA people who were watching "Empire". At best, they were probably dimly aware the Cuba Gooding Jr. was on the show, and that only from commercials.

The weather was the giveaway. If you have ever experienced -20• weather or anything close Smollett’s story that he would be out in it at all, let alone at 2:00 a.m….to get a sandwich...was a knee-slapper. The two men wandering around in that weather with a noose and bleach looking for a random black, Trump-hating homosexual was even more laughable. Saying that anywhere within Chicago city limits is MAGA country is a howler. Some criminals are heinous but receive grudging respect for wit, even genius. But Smollett is just a joke.

The National Football League's "Inspire Change" partners, which receive financial backing from the multibillion-dollar league, include multiple groups that have openly advocated for defunding the police, a Fox News Digital review of the program found.

Democratic mayors are raising eyebrows with their responses to the rising crime plaguing major cities like New York City, Chicago and Philadelphia. The U.S. murder rate rose 30% between 2019 and 2020, according to FBI data – the largest annual increase on record, with Chicago topping the list. At least 12 major cities, including New York, have already set historical murder records in 2021. Robberies and assaults are also on the rise, and retailers in major cities across the country are reporting an uptick in organized smash-and-grab crimes during the busy holiday shopping season.

With a massive build of Russian troops near Ukraine’s border, Russia’s Vladimir Putin is indicating a willingness to risk a military conflict, but analysts say while the threat is serious, an invasion is not certain. The threat of an invasion will be the central subject of President Biden’s video call with Putin on Tuesday. Biden is expected to warn of dire consequences should Russia follow through with a military offensive, while Putin is expected to reiterate his ultimatum that NATO should not allow Ukraine to join its military alliance. The outcome of the video call could have major implications as Putin weighs the potential costs of a full-fledged invasion of Ukraine.

Everyone’s understandably focused today on how Cheney embarrassed Trump Jr and the Fox News gang by reading their texts to Trump on January 6. Ed has a nice write-up about it here. But don’t miss the forest for the trees. The point Cheney was making isn’t that Fox News hosts are hypocrites, although they are. The point is that the president’s own family and allies were pleading with him while the riot was unfolding to do something, yet he did nothing — for hours. Everyone around him treated it like an emergency. Not him. Was that a crime? Watch the end of this clip, starting at around 3:00.

Atlanta — An Associated Press review of every potential case of voter fraud in the six battleground states disputed by former President Donald Trump has found fewer than 475 — a number that would have made no difference in the 2020 presidential election. Democrat Joe Biden won Arizona, Georgia, Michigan, Nevada, Pennsylvania and Wisconsin and their 79 Electoral College votes by a combined 311,257 votes out of 25.5 million ballots cast for president. The disputed ballots represent just 0.15% of his victory margin in those states. The cases could not throw the outcome

Vice President Kamala Harris said in an interview that “women will die” if the Supreme Court of the United States (SCOTUS) overturns landmark ruling Roe v. Wade. Currently, the Court is weighing a case, Dobbs v. Jackson Women’s Health Organization, which pertains to a 15-week abortion ban in Mississippi. The outcome of Dobbs could have direct implications on Roe. In an interview published Sunday with the San Francisco Chronicle, Harris said that efforts for SCOTUS to curtail abortion could result in women dying, adding that she’s not “alarmist” or “extreme” by suggesting that. “I don’t mean to sound alarmist, I mean this: Women will die,” Harris said in the interview.

The Senate voted Tuesday afternoon to raise the debt ceiling by $2.5 trillion - a day before Treasury Secretary Janet Yellen said the U.S. could go into default. Only Democrats voted in favor of the hike, with the final vote standing at 50 to 49, with one Republican abstaining. That meant there was no need for Vice President Kamala Harris to break a tie. Senate Majority Leader Chuck Schumer said on the floor Tuesday morning that the hike would allow the U.S. to borrow enough money to fund its expenses into 2023 - after the midterm elections.
