Michelle Obama Hate America Level Exposed Again in Smollett Chicago Crime?

Ex-Michelle Obama Aide On Smollett: Yep. I Did It

Since we already had the text messages via an FOIA request, this part of the Jussie Smollett mystery probably shouldn’t be considered a bombshell. Tina Tchen, who used to be Michelle Obama’s chief of staff, admitted yesterday that she had intervened in the investigation by putting the state’s prosecutor in touch with some unnamed member of Smollett’s family. What remains unclear is whether or not Tchen did this of her own volition or whether someone in the Obama family prompted her to do it. (USA Today)

“I know members of the Smollett family based on prior work together,” Tchen said in a statement. “Shortly after Mr. Smollett reported he was attacked, as a family friend, I contacted Cook County State’s Attorney Kim Foxx, who I also know from prior work together. My sole activity was to put the chief prosecutor in the case in touch with an alleged victim’s family who had concerns about how the investigation was being characterized in public.”

Foxx said she recused herself from the investigation because of her contacts with Tchen and the Smollett family member. The prosecutor wrote to Police Superintendent Eddie Johnson after the contacts to convey that the family wanted the FBI to take over the investigation, according to copies of emails and text released by the State’s Attorney’s Office.

So now we know how the whitewash ball got rolling in the first place. Foxx’s decision to recuse herself shouldn’t hold much water for anyone because the person who took over for her was undoubtedly clear on how their boss felt about the situation.

So is this the end of the tale? The records are sealed, Smollett strolls away with a smirk on his face and life in Chicago continues as it always has. Or maybe not. Another interesting detail emerged yesterday when we learned that the FBI may not be done with this garbage story. (ABC News)

Fuming from the stunning decision by prosecutors to drop charges in the “hoax” attack case against “Empire” actor Jussie Smollett, Chicago Mayor Rahm Emanuel blasted the move Wednesday, saying all the evidence police collected against the TV star should be unsealed as the FBI opened a review of the disposition of the case.

The Federal Bureau of Investigation (FBI) is reviewing the circumstances surrounding the dismissal of the criminal charges against Smollett, two law enforcement sources briefed on the matter told ABC News on Wednesday. The sources insisted it is not an investigation, but a “review.”

And where did this come from? Sounds like all the way to the top.

Assuming the FBI finds something they really don’t like, do they open a case against Smollett over the hoax or against Foxx and company for the whitewash? More to the point, in order to make the decision, will they be able to access all of the sealed records from the case?

We may not learn the answers to those questions for weeks or even months. But in the meantime, I wanted to point you to one more item related to this story in case you missed it earlier this week. John Kass is a columnist from Chicago who I’ve been following for years. He’s been covering the peculiar, seedy nature of the Windy City’s government for his entire career and he penned a blistering column on Foxx’s handling of this mess. He describes how Foxx “bathed him in the waters of the Chicago Way, cleansed him, and made a new man out of him.”

Instead of a baptism by fire, Jussie Smollett received his baptism in the Chicago swamp. And absent any action by the feds, he will indeed return to his old life as a completely remade man.

Time To Expose Obama-Clinton Cover-up!

The real Obama-Clinton cover-up

It must be investigated, going where the facts may lead

by Monica Crowley  a Washington Times:

Where does Donald Trump go to get his presidency back?

After two years of ominous suspicion, $30 million dollars, endless warrants and subpoenas, dishonest media hysteria and too many wrecked reputations and lives, Special Counsel Robert Mueller found that neither Trump nor his associates colluded with Russia to steal the 2016 election, and determined that no further investigation on obstruction of justice was warranted, and the Department of Justice concurred.

Even some of the president’s fiercest enemies were forced to concede that the Mueller report was a complete vindication of the president and his team.

The Resistance lived by the Mueller, and they’ve died by the Mueller.

They are now, however, too deeply invested in their mission to destroy President Trump to permit anything — above all, the truth — to change their course. They’ve already moved the goalposts again to keep the investigations going.

What they have done — explaining the 2016 election results with the malicious Trump-Russia collusion lie — goes way beyond sore loser syndrome.

It was, in fact, an attempted coup to remove the duly-elected president by weaponizing some of the most fearsome arms of the U.S. government. And the conspirators enjoyed an invaluable, constant assist from their media wingmen.

The entire Russia conspiracy, orchestrated by high-ranking figures in the Obama administration, Hillary Clinton campaign and broader leftist network, was designed to undermine and then destroy the crass interloper who posed an immediate existential threat to all of them. They had to crush him before he could crush them.

It was also designed to provide maximum distraction away from their potential crimes. A multi-year special counsel investigation of a sitting president for something that never happened would grant the actual plotters enough time to cover their tracks and run out the clock on various statutes of limitations so they could escape prosecution.

Ensuring that these corrupt players don’t slip justice is critical to rightfully restoring Mr. Trump’s presidency and the integrity of the DOJ, FBI and other institutions which may be implicated.

That means investigating everyone who carried out the treacherous acts, which they’ve been desperately trying to bury:

• Actual Russian collusion: Mrs. Clinton’s campaign and the Democratic National Committee enlisted a left-wing opposition research firm, Fusion GPS, which hired a former British spy and rabid Trump hater, Christopher Steele, who sought dirt on Mr. Trump from shadowy Russian contacts, among others. Mr. Steele then compiled a phony dossier on Mr. Trump based on the unsubstantiated, uncorroborated nonsense from those sources and helped to pass it off to pivotal figures in the Obama administration and friendlies in the media. With the lies teed up, these figures weaponized them, including using them to secure warrants to spy on the Trump campaign from the Foreign Intelligence Surveillance Court, which was not told that the “evidence” was a pack of political smears derived, at least in part, from Russian sources.

• The use of individuals (Stefan Halper, Joseph Mifsud) with known ties to foreign intelligence to target Trump associates raises questions about the role of John Brennan. If a CIA director had a hand in domestic political spying, it would constitute epic illegality.

• At the highest levels, the Obama administration wiretapped American citizens, including political opponents, illegally unmasked Gen. Michael Flynn and leaked his name to the press. Later, the former FBI director and his deputy Andrew McCabe appear to have set Flynn up in an interview with Trump-hating, now-fired FBI official Peter Strzok.

• The late 2015/early 2016 origins of the Russian hoax, including the original DOJ/FBI probe documents and later, the revised Mueller scope memo, written by Deputy Attorney General Rod Rosenstein, which authorized the special counsel fishing expedition.

• The corrupt handling of the Clinton email/server case by the DOJ and FBI.

• The broader criminal leaks of selective information to journalists who were more than willing to serve as tools of the conspiracy.

All of this — and more — cries out for a thorough-going investigation.

Fortunately Attorney General William Barr views his top priority as restoring institutional trust by sanitizing the DOJ and FBI of their rampant politicization and corruption. That means launching a blue-ribbon investigation to go wherever the facts may lead.

Among those who may want to put their attorneys on speed-dial: former Attorney General Loretta Lynch, Mr. Comey, Mr. McCabe, former Acting Attorney General Sally Yates, Mr. Strzok, former DOJlawyer Lisa Page, DOJ official Bruce Ohr and his Fusion GPS-employee wife Nellie, Mr. Brennan, former National Security Adviser Susan Rice, former U.N. Ambassador Samantha Power, former NSC adviser Ben Rhodes and former Director of National Intelligence James Clapper.

And then there are the two previously sacred cows at the top: Former President Barack Obama and Mrs. Clinton. As I first wrote in February 2018, “High-ranking officials and other major players in those agencies — which Obama oversaw — are increasingly embroiled in the growing scandal Given the tight control Obama exercised over every part of his administration and agenda, the idea that any of these appointees and loyalists freelanced their activities without at least his tacit approval or that of his White House strains credulity.”

Indeed.

This investigation should be conducted expeditiously before applicable statutes of limitations expire. If any of these individuals have committed crimes but are permitted to skate because of endless Mueller/DOJ stalling, the damage to the country will be exponentially worse.

It’s time to fight fire with fire. We deserve answers to the sinister fraud perpetrated upon the legitimate president, his voters, our institutions and the country writ large. We must pursue these public enemies with the same tireless vigor they deployed to target Mr. Trump.

Their malignant lie has been exposed. Now the consequences must begin.

What Are Some American Leftist Fascists Up To These Days? Let’s Try ESPN’s Keith Olbermann!

Man Receives ‘Verbal Attacks’ After Keith Olbermann Tells Followers To Make ‘The Rest Of His Life A Living Hell’

A hunter in Mississipi received “verbal attacks” after being singled out by ESPN commentator Keith Olbermann on Twitter. Earlier today Olbermann freaked out over a minor story about a hunter shooting an unusual white turkey during turkey hunting season. Olbermann called for the author of the story to be fired and said of Hunter Waltman, the man who shot the turkey, “we should do our best to make sure the rest of his life is a living hell.” (h/t Caleb Hull)

That implied threat didn’t go over well with anyone, including Olbermann’s employer. Fox News reports ESPN has spoken to himabout the incident but there aren’t any additional details. Something must have happened though because Olbermann deleted the tweet and apologized:

Keith Olbermann

@KeithOlbermann

I am an opponent of trophy hunting and remain so, but nobody should feel threatened. This was anything but my intent, so I unreservedly apologize to Mr. Waltman for this tweet.

Needless to say, this is a lie. When someone encourages a million people to make your life a living hell, that’s a threat. And sure enough, Hunter Waltman says he received messages from people who hoped something bad would happen to him. From the Clarion-Ledger:

Waltman said he is receiving verbal attacks due to Olbermann’s actions. While no one directly threatened to harm him, some said they hope harm comes his way.

“I didn’t like the idea of that too much,” Waltman said. “I don’t think a lot of people would like to be called out on social media like that, especially (by someone) with so many followers.

“They text me all kinds of stuff. If he (Olbermann) hadn’t done that, none of this would have happened.”…

“To tell you the truth, it seemed like a threat to me,” Waltman said. “Make (my) life ‘a living hell?’ That seems like a threat to me. I’d be glad to see him fired. He went overboard.”

As always, I don’t support firing people for having bad opinions. But in this case, it’s actually Olbermann trying to get someone fired for an opinion (the author of the story). Also, as Waltman said, what Olbermann tweeted went well beyond expressing an opinion about hunting. He was trying to get a mob worked enough to generate some real-life misery for a complete stranger and he succeeded. That’s despicable and I hope ESPN’s talk with him made it clear he has used up his only pass.

Finally, the punchline of this story is that Olbermann himself once starred in a commercial selling turkey sandwiches for Boston Market. So apparently trophy hunting a turkey is cause for making someone’s life hell but getting paid to tell people to eat turkey sandwiches is just fine.
