The feeling of outrage and confusion reverberating across America as all charges were dropped in the Jussie Smollett hate crime hoax may be easily explained by one shadowy figure – George Soros – and the immense power he wields in the Democratic Party.
The billionaire financier and his wealthy minions spent hundreds of thousands of dollars to ensure Kim Foxx would win the election for Cook County State’s Attorney in 2016. But she isn’t his first Chicago player accused of being in bed with big money donors – there are two dozen county attorneys currently in office that were heavily backed by Soros.
It’s good to have friends in high places, as it makes the horrible mess one creates go away with career intact – today. But will Foxx survive the onslaught of public scrutiny now that there is a potential cover-up to uncover?
Why is Smollett Important to George?
Other pals of the seemingly immortal billionaire spent a few shekels of political capital as well. Tina Tchen, Michelle Obama’s former chief of staff and a friend of the Smollett family, threw her weight around. One text message to Foxx uncovered by Chicago P.D. was all too obvious: “I wanted to give you a call on behalf of Jussie Smollett and family who I know. They have concerns about the investigation.”
Senators Cory Booker (D-NJ) and Kamala Harris (D-CA) – both hoping to be president in 2020 – launched their new Justice for Victims of Lynching Act during the initial days of the investigation into Smollett’s alleged attack. Lynching is already a heinous – and outlawed – crime. The gesture was mostly symbolic, and passed unanimously. But the timing of the alleged attack is certainly questionable.
When news broke of the now-debunked hate crime, Harris practically seethed through a tweet, “This was an attempted modern-day lynching.” Booker followed the memo on messaging to a T: “The vicious attack on actor Jussie Smollett was an attempted modern-day lynching. I’m glad he’s safe.”
When asked about the latest developments, Harris babbled almost Pelosi-style with, “To be perfectly honest … I’m completely confused. I don’t understand. I don’t know. I don’t know the underlying evidence … I don’t know. I’m at a loss.” This is the reason George Soros needs Jussie Smollett to go away as quickly and quietly as possible. Two contenders to take down President Trump cannot be saddled with a fake hate crime, a lingering blizzard of media coverage, and an uncertain outcome at trial.
Thus, he made it go away – or so he assumes.
Soros Pokes an Angry Beast
Chicago’s outgoing mayor, Rahm Emanuel, and the top cop in the police department, Superintendent Eddie Johnson, were left out of Soros’ fix-it scheme. They stood firm with a public outrage seldom seen from either man and handed a rebuking of State’s Attorney Foxx. Emanuel, standing with Johnson in solidarity, called dropping the charges a “whitewash” of justice, further claiming, “To me, it makes no sense. It makes no legal sense, no common sense, and this is an abomination in my sense of justice.”
Let’s face it: Emanuel is a dangerous man. And he isn’t seeking reelection, so he has nothing to lose.
Chicago’s police union is now investigating Foxx. Department leaders are making public statements against what they see as an injustice, and have sent a stern letter to Smollett demanding reimbursement for the investigation – $130,000 – to be paid immediately.
It appears the Smollett case will live a bit longer. The future of Foxx, however, is uncertain. Someone may have to fall on her sword for the good of the order.
Soros will win this bout in the end. He has unfettered access to the media and his hands continue to tighten a noose around the neck of the Democratic Party. But that’s as far as his influence reaches, as conservative Americans now recognize his game, power, and wealth. It stops at the border of MAGA country.
