Hate Hoax Update: Police Now Believe Jussie Smollett Paid Two Men to Stage Attack…

Details are now starting to surface that Empire actor Jussie Smollett not only fabricated a hate hoax crime, but that he actually staged the crime and paid assistants to help him.

Earlier today it was revealed that detectives discovered the two Nigerian brothers questioned by police had purchased the rope found around Smollett’s neck at an Ace hardware. The two co-conspirators are now cooperating with police who are investigating.

Adding more likelihood to the attack being staged, Mr. Smollett has hired high-priced defense attorney and former federal prosecutor Michael Monico to defend him.

(twitter linkstory link)

CHICAGO (CNN) – Two law enforcement sources with knowledge of the investigation told CNN that Chicago Police believe Jussie Smollett paid two men to orchestrate the assault.

The brothers, who were arrested Wednesday, were released without charges Friday after Chicago police cited the discovery of “new evidence.” The sources told CNN that the two men are now cooperating fully with law enforcement.

The sources told CNN that there are records that show the two brothers purchased the rope found around Smollett’s neck at an Ace Hardware store in Chicago.

Smollett gave his first detailed account of what he says was a hate crime against him, and the aftermath, in an interview with “Good Morning America” that aired Thursday. During the interview he expressed frustration at not being believed. (read more)

    Paid , and rehearsed a few days before.

    CHICAGO (CBS) — Jussie Smollett paid two brothers to stage an attack against him, directed them to buy items used in the alleged assault and actually rehearsed it with them, sources say.

      Wow, Smollett is CHEAP. Only $4000 for that? The guys had their apartment raided and they were arrested at the airport, and the $4000 is probably gone already thanks to the trip to Nigeria.

        I spent a lot of time working inside a correctional facility and saw numerous inmates over the years of various ethnic backgrounds that had been involved in physical altercations suffered facial trauma.

        The photos I saw of smollet’s face looked more like he had a cat scratch on his cheek rather the trauma that would be imposed by a fist and, unless the individual was unconscious, I can’t imagine anyone keeping the rope around his neck as an almost instinctive reaction would be to tear it off and throw it to the ground as soon as you could. Then of course you have the rest of smollett’s statements such as indications the perps were bigoted white males casually wandering the city streets in temperatures well below zero carrying a newly purchased rope apparently looking for a victim. Having lived on the south side of Chicago many years ago in that kind of bitter cold, people tend to wear parkas with fur or sherpa lined hoods, and/or knit hats which are much warmer during the cold weather, add to that Chicago is as ‘blue’ as it gets, a city where people have actually been pulled from their cars and beaten for the offense of wearing a MAGA hat.

        I think that there are a LOT of questionable items in smollett’s statement and I have no doubt that the investigation will expose any inconsistencies. Ironically, if this does end up being shown to be a staged event, it will end up costing him his job as a well deserved consequence along with criminal charges for filing a false police report.

    This was just a small part of the ongoing massive ideological attack on the West, classical liberalism and Christianity by the far-left. The same dangerous warped mentality is currently attacking Churchill & his legacy. These people are neo-Marxists. Smollett is a neo-Marxist.

    They are obsessed with identity & race—a fascistic way of thinking. And they are obsessed with equality—a Marxist way of thinking. They are effectively a Marxist/fascist hybrid. And they have almost complete control of the West e.g. the mainstream news & entertainment industry, academia, NGO’s, local and state governments, the UN, the EU, corporate boardrooms, major political parties on both left & right and intelligence agencies on both sides of the Atlantic.

    And the next generation of activists coming out of the university system—and into positions of power and influence—are going to be even worse.

        They are not liberals. They are leftists. For the left, the love of idea is much greater than the love of people. That 25,000 people would have jobs, good-paying jobs, that massive numbers of workers in Long Island City and environs would benefit from Amazon coming there is of no consequence to them. They care about corporate greed, not about bettering the life of human beings. In the name of equality, people don’t realize how much evil has been done. This is a little example.”

        Prager cited the French Revolution, Venezuela, and the Soviet Union as examples where the ideal is more important than human beings.

        “Leftism is an emotion,” Prager added. “It’s not a position. And so, they so loathe that anybody is richer than anyone else that it is better that everyone suffer at a low level than everyone be improved, but there still [will] be much richer people. They live the idea of the violation because I think in biblical terms, often, of the Tenth Commandment: Don’t covet what belongs to someone else. The left is based on coveting.”

        Example: ILLary Rudeham Clinton. Believes that everyone except herself is responsible for her L0$$E$. Her handlers all say it is so. She and they have all written books on it, done the book tours, and did all the shows on the boob tubes. Staked their tattered “reputations” on it.

          That has been true for a very long time. I remember reading Malcolm X’s autobiography a long time ago. He said he’s early nickname was “Red” which is what blacks would call a mixed race person whose hair was on the orangey side and had light tan skin, like he did. Think of Corey Booker’s grey-blue eyes, also indicating a heritage that’s far from “African.” His last name Booker is an old South Carolinian slave-owner family name BTW. Eric Holder. Valerie Jarrett. Susan Rice. Just compare these second-rate dude/dudettes with the two Nigerian fellas having a good laugh at Jussi’s expense. Now THOSE guys are African-African and they could give a crap about all this stuff, just show them the $$. Typical Nigerian nonsense. So funny that it happened to Jussi;-) How very deserving he is of the deep doo-doo he is in now!

          On a related matter, back during the 2008 Presidential campaign, before I even saw an image of Michelle Obama, or knew anything about her, I just assumed that someone who looked like Barack Obama, had the same schooling and all that white upbringing, would have as a spouse a white woman, a la Tiger Woods and numerous others. So when I saw that primitive creature with a man’s jawline, jutting teeth and brow ridge, great height, square shoulders, rippling arm muscles and very dark skin — no mulatto — my gaydar was aroused. I knew then that BHO was a flit and used Michelle’s political/Chicago wherewithal to climb the ladder. Plus, she had that icky racial anger itch just waiting to be scratched, which he latched onto quickly. What a team!

          The MSM promptly fell in line with the party line and NEVER investigated the ugly back stories of these two. I would love to know the sales stats/ad pages/circulation of all the women’s mags, like Vogue and many others, that carried Michelle’s air-brushed image on numerous covers. I stopped buying these then and haven’t re-upped any since. I might rescind the self-imposed ban if Melania appears on one. Still waiting. It must be killing them (the mags) to refuse to do this as she really is a fashion plate!.

And just as they have all along, they will blame it on now President TRUMP. They blamed their hatred and vitriol all on Candidate/Nominee/President Elect TRUMP before.

      If we think Maxine Watters has been bad SINCE President TRUMP took office, imagine how she (and all the other DIMwits there) told everyone to treat us PRE-ELECTION.

      As we now know, Truth is not the goal of the press. News that is “fit to print” is now any story that fits within the agenda to smear President Trump and his supporters.

      The enemy of the people knows they have the ability to influence opinion. The m.o. is to go big with a story, using its multiple outlets for maximum exposure, no matter the true facts. Once the story is out there, a certain segment of the population latch onto it and don’t let go. That’s the goal. The damage is done.

      When the truth is discovered/ revealed, the press may or may not report it. Their exposure of the truth is a little story and does not get the full exposure that the lie receives.

      The good news is that the truth does receive attention in social media outlets, and the actions of the ememy of the people are being exposed. More and more are becoming aware. As we all know, President Trump is playing a big role in exposing truth.

      So to those in the big box media complex. Keeping reporting your lies. It just means More Winning for the people.

    Jussie’s legal representation has changed. Initiailly it was defense attorney Michael Monico (noted for representing Michael Cohen), but now it appears to be Todd Pugh and Victor Henderson,

    last night, Chicago attorneys Todd Pugh and Victor Henderson issued a statement saying that they now represent Smollett […] It was not clear when Pugh and Henderson took over the Smollett case. Just one day earlier, leading Chicago defense attorney Michael Monico told WGN’s Roe Conn that he was representing Smollett “at the moment.” Pugh recently succeeded in defending a Chicago cop against claims that the officer participated in a cover-up of the Laquan McDonald shooting. http://www.cwbchicago.com/

    What is the BLM crowd going to think when they find out Jussie is using an attorney who helped one of the Laquan McDonald cops? 🙂 (By the way, there were three police officers who were charged with a cover-up, Pugh represented only one. All were found not guilty by a judge. They had a bench trial, I think that’s what it’s called, not a jury trial.)

      Jussie’s father is white and mother is black. I read that his mother was hooked up with Black Panthers and other actiivists back in the day. Jussie’s father left the family and the mother raised the kids. The kids are all half white but I suspect the mother raised them to identify as full black and to hate whites. What a shame. It reminds me of Trayvon’s parents who obviously taught Trayvon to hate whites and that’s ultimately the reason why he’s dead. Excessive hatred clouds the mind and leads to stupid detrimental actions.

        Indeed it does (cloud the mind). What a shame, Children model their parents …where is the responsibility? And I’ve seen that in certain “communities” very young children are taught that the police are “out to get them”. I see no ending to this madness.

        Re Jussie’s parents, there are four children. All have strange first names. Did this white father drift in and out? Stay with the family he’d help create until he couldn’t take any more? Where is Jussie’s family history? Link?

          Correction: Six children. All I could find was this at Wikipedia:

          Jussie Smollett was born in Santa Rosa, California, and is the third of six children born to Janet (née Harris) and Joel Smollett.[9] He has three brothers and two sisters: Jake, Jocqui, Jojo, Jurnee, and Jazz, several of whom are also actors.[10] Smollett is biracial.[11] His father was Jewish (his family emigrated from Russia and Poland). Smollett’s mother is African-American.[12] He graduated from Paramus Catholic High School in Paramus, NJ.[13]

    What’s the best course of action for the Nigerians now? They are poor. Jussie doesn’t exactly have unlimited funds but he is able pay for expensive legal representation. Judging by his new attorneys’ statements, they are going to claim that Jussie did not participate in the hoax. They’ll pin it all on the Nigerians,

    Just want to add to those who are wondering if the Nigerians are here legally, apparently they are, they have residency papers which were among the items the CPD seized during the apartment raid.
    Their parents are here too and apparently the whole bunch have been living in “free” public housing for many years..

    In a city in which there are over 2 murders PER DAY, 83% of which go unsolved, this narcissistic Hollywood actor #JussieSmollett sucked up hundreds of police hours. This is what happens when you believe emotions over evidence and value ideology over reality.

    This story makes no sense. First we were supposed to believe he was attacked while walking, but we were told it was a hoax because there was no point of attack and bleach doesn’t freeze, he never put down his sandwich, etc.

    Now we are told to believe that Smollett hired two beefy guys who bought Maga hats and rope to STAGE an attack. Smollett is in cinema, but no video.

    I have to give the dem narrative makers credit. When they come up with story they want to dominate the news cycles, they don’t falter when it falls apart….like Covington. Alinsky would be proud. Pick your target and freeze it.

  40. If Jussie really, truly believed that violent, racist, MAGA hat wearing, homophobic people existed then why didn’t he just go walk around these people when they were walking back to their cars after a Trump rally? He could have brought friend to film all of these Trump supporters harassing him, saying terrible things to him, and maybe, tossing in a little violence for him.

      Because, as with the Covington kids, they know never get the result they want because the narrative is a lie in the first place. In the Covington case, they just edited the video and ran with it, but now they are all being personally sued for libel, which they don’t like.

      But, in this case, as I noted above, WHAT ATTACK? Why bother to hire the Nigerian beef cakes if there is no video and no apparent point of attack.

      This story makes no sense.

        Known from the cops’ investigations:

        1. The brothers bought the type of rope used at an Ace Hardware store.

        2. One of the brothers, both brothers being gay and anti-Trump according to people involved with Empire, called Smollett just before the attack from the general area of the attack. This is known because the one who called gave the cops his phone. This also explains why Smollett didn’t want to give the cops his phone.

        3. Smollett was probably on his phone to his manager because he’d been threatened in that call.

        I strongly suspect this is a “lovers quarrel” or some other kind of disagreement that was attempted to be covered up with the MAGA claim. The payments from Smollett were not a payment to carry out the attack, but a payment to settle the disagreement through a payoff.

      When did a Trump rally get involved?

      Does this bozo know that Trump rally types are known to be suburban moms and dads and young kids and grandparents? That was determined some time ago… And they don’t do rallies on freezing nights, lasting into the wee small hours.

      If DJT had ever said the vile things that Jussie has publicly said about him, he’d never have been elected. Jussie has an ugly mind, an ugly mouth. And a whole lot of baggage he’s carrying around. Gay, black, 36 (OTH for someone like him, both personally and in his career, where he is a “supporting” actor). Old gays have to set up fancy apartments (as his 60 year old friend has) to lure younger ones. That is Jussie’s future.

      Conversely, some (many) gays settle into relationships and live quiet, happy, productive lives, enjoying the company of both heteros and other gays. No hate, no marching in the streets, no flamboyance. We know one couple who have been together for over 30 years.

    “CNN reports the two brothers purchased the rope that was tied to Smollett’s neck at Ace Hardwood store in Chicago.”

    The following explains why Smollett didn’t want to give the police his cell phone:

    “One of the brothers reportedly handed over his phone to police officers who discovered a phone call between him and Jussie in the area of the attack before it happened.”

    “…sources from Empire revealed the two guys are very close with Jussie and are both pro-LGBTQ+ and anti-Trump. ”

    I suspect that this might have been a “lovers quarrel” that was later attempted to be passed off as a MAGA attack. If this was instead a planned hoax, then all involved are complete and total MORONS because it could not have been done more clumsily.

      Found in the brothers apartment: A plain red cap they had purchased at a beauty supply store. Also regular clothesline rope from a specific hardware store, whose name and address have been published. Jussie said one of his “attackers” wore a black mask? The brothers have been marketing full head and face covering black “ski masks” for $20.

      Their apartment turned out to be a treasure trove of potential evidence. And there was bleach there, too.

          BTW, anyone know how the brothers got nabbed? I can think of a way: since Smollett wouldn’t turn over his phone the police would have looked at all calls made through the cell tower closest to the scene and then crossed the names of the callers to anyone who might know Smollett. Just the “pings” to the tower from any cell phones that were ON in the coverage area of the cell tower may have allowed them to do the same even if no calls had been made.

    Why do I find myself so absolutely livid over this? Smollett falsely reported a crime, for sure…but I wish there to be a deeper reckoning. He fueled a fire being stoked at every cable news outlet for a good 48 hours (save a couple that saw it for what it was). I see it as a reciprocal hate crime. I see his act as a sheer hatred of white hetero America in the context of DJT. I believe a good judge should see it that was, as well. He sought out a television interview so he could exacerbate his false story.
    Proglidem folks on social media are giving him all the excuses in the books for his actions…”He’s confused.'” “He was being written off the show.” “Poor guy is obviously going through a lot.”
    Convict Jussie Smollett of a hate crime and lock him away for a good 25 years in Federal prison and see how many new jokers try this again.

      I do too. He was deliberately pinning a faked crime on white people. He hates whites. The funny thing is he’s half white himself, his father was white (now deceased). His black mother must have raised him to hate white people and so he does. I read that he refused to allow his Empire character to have a white boyfriend.

    He needs to be held accountable for his actions and prosecuted to the fullest. In addition to any fine and/or jail time, he should have to reimburse the city for wasted resources (time and money). Send a message to the next person who thinks it’s a good idea to hoax a hate crime. Until people are held accountable for their actions, this kind of BS will just continue.
