Of course, I don't mean to appear politically incorrect in calling them numbskulls. What I mean to say, in more proper English, is that they are well and truly dumb. By comparison, they make the Three Stooges look like geniuses.
I smelled a rat in this Jussie Smollett caper from the beginning. Who goes out alone, on foot to get a sandwich at 2am (2am!) on a bone chillingly cold Chicago winter's night, when it is -21 °F and the wind is whipping in off of Lake Michigan?
No one, absolutely no one, surely no sane person, that's who. The story was preposterous from the beginning, way over the top, theatrically staged to automatically push political and emotional hot buttons on the far Left and center-Left of the USSA's political spectrum.
The obvious question is then: why pull this stunt? Which naturally segues into: cui bono? Who benefits most from this curious caper? I'll get to that below, so bear with me, but first things first.
The "bestest" Why? video that I have seen on the matter is this one, a real piece of Internet art. Watch the whole thing; it's a real hoot. She asks the obvious "Why" question at the 1:45 to 1:50 mark.
Is that not a revealing video? (Just for kicks, also see Charles Barkley in rare form here.)
It is already abundantly clear that the three "stooges" in the Jussie Smollett caper are dumb and "dumberer"; so dumb, in fact, that it's hard to imagine that they are capable of thinking this up on their own. They don't appear to have that much intellectual wattage.
To wit: two Nigerian body builders? Nigerians? As one Internet wag observed in a YouTube comment section, it's usually Nigerians who scam and set other people up, not the other way around!
Anyway, I definitely smell a (ge*****?) fishy (let's see -- Smollett, mullet) malodorous, hidden hand behind this affair, maybe several hidden hands, maybe even multiple levels of hidden hands with very crafty, diametrically opposed motives. In other words, Jussie Smollett and the two Nigerians got played big time; the first and second level handlers of Smollett and the Nigerians also got played; and the (likely) third and fourth level handlers of this felonious escapade ain't sayin' nothin' and won't, because they hold the winning hand.
Note that Smollett resisted handing over his cell phone to the cops for "privacy" reasons. He finally did so, with a delay of several days, after redacting his call activity. Why?
Obviously to conceal communications with his co-conspirators. The police can easily obtain telephone records from the telecommunications companies with a subpoena, so clearly when they got Jussie Smollett's phone records they homed in on the calls that he attempted to conceal from them.
They would have quickly uncovered the two Nigerians and any others involved, and I definitely suspect the background involvement of others.
To be sure, the FOX television network, and/or one or more of its subordinate minions, have to be at the top of the possible suspects list.
Lee Daniels, the co-creator of the Empire show on FOX, very publicly came out in support of Jussie Smollett:
Lee Daniels Posts Emotional Reaction to Jussie Smollett Attack: ‘America Is Better Than That'
Even when evidence began to come out indicating that Smollett and the two Nigerians falsely staged the complete crime the FOX TV network and FOX Entertainment doubled down and issued the following statement:
The idea that Jussie Smollett has been, or would be, written off of 'Empire' is patently ridiculous. He remains a core player on this very successful series and we continue to stand behind him. (source: here)
Translation: ratings. Ratings = revenue. Moolah. Money. Bread. Dough. Bucks. Filthy lucre. $$$$$$.
Um, you know, ₪ shekels ₪.
And then FOX unceremoniously dumped him from the show.
Like the young lady says in the video above: "Hollywood is a dangerous place." (minute 2:00 to 2:10)
No shit, Sherlock. The long knives are everywhere.
Did Jussie Smollett call people at FOX and/or people connected with the Empire show before and/or after the purported attack? Was that one of the reasons that he didn't want to hand over his cell phone?
I ask, because of the very interesting anecdote in the video above at the 3:30 to 4:25 minute mark. Watch it now, if you haven't already. The fake make-up angle and the fake facial swelling being allegedly done by someone who knows someone who does make-up for FOX would raise a host of issues.
If true, does it explain why the FOX TV network and the Empire show voiced such strong, unreserved, public support for Jussie Smollett, even in the face of his transparently implausible, cockamamy, tall tale? Questions naturally arise as to whether FOX and people connected with Empire had some knowledge of this affair. Maybe the anecdote in the 3:30 to 4:25 portion of the video helps explain the first level of this criminal, amateurish, African-American-Nigerian, Three Stooges episode. It certainly raises a red flag that bears further investigation.
On the second (not very) hidden-hand-level is the behavior of such political players as Cory Booker, Kamala Harris, Nancy Pelosi, et al.
Speaker of the House, NancyPelosi, tweeted (and then deleted a couple of weeks later):
The racist, homophobic attack on @JussieSmollett is an affront to our humanity. No one should be attacked for who they are or whom they love. I pray that Jussie has a speedy recovery & that justice is served. May we all commit to ending this hate once & for all. (source: here)
Kamala Harris, the prominent, Democratic presidential candidate from California and United States Senator, tweeted:
@JussieSmollett is one of the kindest, most gentle human beings I know. I’m praying for his quick recovery ... This was an attempted modern day lynching. No one should have to fear for their life because of their sexuality or color of their skin. We must confront this hate. (source: here)
Notice that Kamala Harris says that she "knows" Jussie Smollett. Does she know him well enough to be in the loop? Well enough to talk with him on his cell phone?
Cory Booker, another Democratic presidential hopeful and United States Senator, made this public statement:
The vicious attack on actor Jussie Smollett was an attempted modern-day lynching. I'm glad he's safe. To those in Congress who don't feel the urgency to pass our Anti-Lynching bill designating lynching as a federal hate crime– I urge you to pay attention. (source: here)
Notice that Cory Booker uses the identical "modern-day lynching" phrase that Kamala Harris used in her Tweet and urges the Congress to "pay attention" to his anti-lynching bill.
That is noteworthy, because interestingly, and perhaps not entirely coincidentally, Senators Kamala Harris and Cory Booker were two prominent sponsors and backers of an anti-lynching bill that passed in the United States Senate just two months ago. But it has not yet passed in the United States House of Representatives, as it must do, if it it is to be signed into law by President Donald Trump.
Clearly this bill is a political stunt, seeing as lynchings are very uncommon in the 21st century. Murder occurs frequently, true enough. Lamentably, tens of thousands of murders occur in the USSA every year. But lynchings? Not very common at all, thankfully.
But, what do you know, mere weeks after the Senate passed the anti-lynching bill -- and the House demurred, failing to act on it -- Jussie Smollett popped up big-time in the national news cycle, with his, now-known-to-be-fake, attempted lynching attack story.
What a coincidence!
Note well: United States Senator, Kamala Harris, said in her Tweet on the day of the alleged attack:
@JussieSmollett is one of the kindest, most gentle human beings I know.
She point blank says that she knows him! Does she know him well enough to talk with him on his cell phone? Perhaps well enough for Jussie Smollett to have to try to delete Kamala Harris's telephone number and records of her telephone calls from his cell phone before handing it over to the police? I don't know, but the question practically asks itself.
Kamala Harris is from Oakland, California. Jussie Smollett is from Santa Rosa, California, just 59 miles by road from Oakland. Jessie Smollett's mother's maiden name is also Harris. To my knowledge, there is not a family tie between Kamala Harris and Janet Harris (Smollett's mother). But Jussie Smollett's mother apparently does have ties to radical Left political figures. According to Smollett:
My mom was in the movement with Bobby Seale and Huey Newton, and one of her first mentors was Julian Bond. To this day, Angela Davis is one of her dearest friends. We’ve spent Mother’s Day with Angela. (source: here)
Given the close geographical proximity of Oakland and Santa Rosa, and the involvement of Jussie Smollett's mother with radical Leftists, has she had contact with Kamala Harris, the prominent Leftist politician from Oakland?
The question arises because Kamala Harris jumped to Jussie Smollett's defense within 24 hours and said that she knows him. How does Kamala Harris know Jussie Smollett and since when?
The Third and Fourth Hidden-Hand-Levels?
On the third level, leaving behind the three, absurd, collateral damage, throw away players (e.g., does Jussie Smollett realize yet how viciously he has been played by his handlers and also by the Nigerians?) and the plausible deniability of Leftist luminaries in the Democratic Party, as well as the FOX TV network and the FOX Empire show, the cui bono factor more clearly reveals itself.
Who most benefits from all of this?
Clearly not the Leftist wing of the Democratic Party, which has embarrassingly shot itself in its own, Black-LBG hind parts in the most public way imaginable. It is a grave, self-inflicted political wound that has undercut the Leftist wing of the party just one year before the first presidential primaries and debates.
I love the following analysis by Lionel Nation. He comes to the logical conclusion that it is Donald Trump who politically benefits from the Jussie Smollett fiasco!
He makes the case that the Old(er) Guard in the Democratic Party may have helped to set up the snot-nosed, Hard Left newcomers for a very calculated, political "hit", with Jussie Smollett and his enablers as the fall guys and gals.
If so, does this mean that, that .. people like the Clintons, Obamas, Bernie Sanders, Nancy Pelosi, Rahm Emmanuel, etc. are secretly in league with the Trump faction of the Republican Party (at least in this conniving gambit) and very sneakily conspired to slice and dice the smarty pants newcomers in the Democratic Party, and deliver them an extra large can of highly public "whup ass"?
This possibility is worthy of consideration, if only because the whole matter is so very decidedly strange, and must needs therefore require a non-ordinary explanation.
Getting Down to the Serious Nitty-Gritty
Keep in mind that all of this extracurricular monkey business has taken place in Chicago. Rahm Emanuel is the current, serving mayor of Chicago (for a little while longer anyway). Rahm Emanuel is a consummate political insider, both in national politics and Chicago politics. Rahm Emanuel is Jewish. He is also widely believed to be a dual Israeli-American citizen. In the past he briefly served in the Israeli military as a volunteer. His Jerusalem-born father was a member of the notorious Irgun terrorist gang during the British Palestine Mandate.
Rahm Emanuel is famous for observing in 2009 when beginning his tenure as Barack Obama's Chief of Staff:
... never allow a good crisis to go to waste when it's an opportunity to do things that you had never considered, or that you didn't think were possible. (source: here)
And is this ever a "good crisis"!
Also germane for this discussion, Rahm Emanuel's brother, Ari Emanuel, is the co-CEO of William Morris Endeavor, one of the largest and best known talent agencies in Hollywood, with clients in film, television, sports, music, advertising and more. Thus, through his brother, Rahm Emanuel would have a backdoor pipeline to the highest levels inside the world of show business, movies and television. For example, it is a sure bet that Ari Emanuel knows people at FOX television, if you catch my drift.
Interestingly, in 2015 William Morris Endeavor bought the Miss Universe Organization from Donald Trump.
This means that the mayor of Chicago's brother has Donald Trump's name and number in his Rolodex, and vice versa. Please note well.
Here's another interesting factoid. Jussie Smollett is half Jewish. His deceased father was of Russian-Polish Jewish ancestry.
This fact is certainly known in the Jewish community and by the Jewish and Israeli press, who openly trumpeted his Jewish ancestry immediately after his alleged "attack". Please see:
Black Jewish actor Jussie Smollett violently assaulted
Quoting from the Jerusalem Post article: The American Jewish Committee tweeted that they "are horrified by the assault on @jussiesmollet, whose attackers shouted racist and homophobic slurs before putting a noose around his neck. We pray for his recovery and call on police to bring the perpetrators of this hate crime swiftly to justice," the group said.
Black Jewish actor Jussie Smollett violently assaulted in Chicago
Quoting from the Jewish Telegraph Agency article: “This reported attack on Jussie is a disturbing reminder of the terrible homophobia and racism that plagues our society,” Anti-Defamation League CEO Jonathan Greenblatt said in a statement. “We call on police to investigate this vile incident as a hate crime and work swiftly to bring the alleged perpetrators to justice.”
And so it went as the Jewish and Israeli press jumped on the story.
As it urns out, it was indeed a hate crime: a pathetically twisted variation of the all too common Black on Black crime that besets many urban neighborhoods, a self-hating, self-inflicted crime by a Black-Jewish, D-list, homosexual actor/singer and two, paid, co-conspiring, Nigerian body builder accomplices.
Lastly: The Fourth Hidden-Hand-Level
In recent days, Dave Hodges posted an interesting article on his Common Sense Show website.
The Real Story Behind the Fake Smollett Attack Is Not Being Told
In the article, Hodges states that he has been told by one of his sources that the: "... plot originated within a government agency..." and that there was a federal agent involved.
I want to say three things in response to that.
1) I absolutely strongly suspect the hidden (so far) involvement of at least one, if not multiple, agents and agencies in the Smollett affair. Smollett and the Nigerians are just the fall guys, the stooges, the disposable patsies.
2) I know from personal observation that some USA alphabet soup agency assets and agents also work with, or for, the Mossad, the Israeli espionage agency.
3) I am open to the possibility that the "government agency" in which the Smollett plot originated was the Mossad. If so, the Mossad certainly is working with other agencies in the USA, likely including the FBI, the US Postal Service, the Chicago Police and others.
The Jussie Smollett hate crime hoax is a complex situation, with multiple actors (literally!), agents and agencies, with multiple, even contradictory motives and agendas, and operating at multiple levels -- personal, societal, political.
I believe that the truth of the complex, multi-strand operation defies easy description or understanding. It serves different purposes for different persons and factions.
Somewhere in the many threads I lay out in this article is the likely truth, or truths of the matter. I have laid out many of the known dots -- you decide how they all connect together, or if they do.
One of the most glaring take aways is that Jussie Smollett got played big-time. He'll be lucky to avoid time behind bars, potentially many years. And if he runs his mouth he might suffer a worse fate than years of incarceration. There are very big players and big money involved in this thing behind the scenes. It smells like someone told Jussie that all he had to do was stage a fake hate crime and the hoax would propel him to fame and fortune.
But Jussie got in way over his head. None of it was true and the jig was up within just a couple of weeks.
Jussie and the Nigerians are the fall guys and will suffer the consequences. Donald Trump is reaping a political windfall, a political bonanza, as the Democratic Party suffers an embarrassing, needless, self-inflicted wound. The Zionists hang back on the sidelines, pulling strings and ceaselessly jiggering the societal and political hot buttons of the hoi-polloi in the USSA.
Game point to Donald Trump and the Zionists.
That's the way it looks to me.
