Jussie Smollett Loses NAACP Image Award

Empire” actor/singer Jussie Smollett did not win an NAACP Image Award this weekend.  I can report, with great confidence, that Smollett is a loser.  This, the same week the “Empire” star had felony charges against him dropped by Cook County prosecutors.

I’m pretty sure they will somehow find a way to blame Donald Trump for Smollett’s loss.  On that note, will Smollett now sue the NAACP?

According to Deadline, Jussie Smollett was snubbed for Grey’s Anatomy actor Jesse Williams for the Outstanding Supporting Actor award.  Smollett then skipped the award dinner.

From Breitbart:

The controversial Empire actor, who recently saw hate hoax charges dropped against him in a decision that roiled politicians and the media, lost to fellow nominee Jesse Williams of Grey’s Anatomy in the Outstanding Supporting Actor category in the non-televised portion of the awards on Friday, according to ABC News.

Smollett reportedly did not attend the award ceremony Friday.  Anthony Anderson, the host of the NAACP Image Awards, previously said that he wished for Smollett to win.

“I hope he wins. I’m happy for him that the system worked for him in his favor because the system isn’t always fair, especially for people of color,” the Black-ish star said.

“It’s not my place or any other person’s place to judge him or what not, but I’m glad [that] he’s nominated…I hope he wins because I’d be interested to hear his speech.”

Yes, it IS his place to judge him or what not.  For goodness’ sake, the entire point of the Image Awards is to judge people for their behavior.  As the host of the awards show, Anderson should have just kept his mouth shut instead of pushing the racial line of “the system isn’t always fair, especially for people of color” for a man he too must know is guilty.  So, it’s fair for a politically-biased black prosecutor to drop all 16 counts against him without a good reason for doing so?  What about all the black victims of crimes in Chicago that couldn’t speak with a detective because they were on the Smollett attack case?  Who speaks for them?

It is a disgrace that the once great NAACP would stoop so low as even to entertain giving an Image Award to a man who allegedly faked his own racial/anti-gay attack, which lumped over 60 million Americans into a despicable category, and all to give his career a boost.  It smacks of racial politics.  Why else would the organization nominate a man who the entire country knows staged his own attack?  It doesn’t matter that he’s been nominated and won in the past.  There is overwhelming evidence against him, and the “system” worked in his favor to skirt around the rule of law.  There is nothing to be happy about.

Last month Smollett was charged with 16 felonies for staging a fake racist and anti-gay attack against himself.  The Chicago PD did a superb job gathering evidence and revealing the hoax.

On Tuesday, every charge against Smollett was suddenly dropped.  Since then, it has been reported that Chicago Mayor Rahm Emanuel is sending the actor a bill for $130,000 to recover the costs of his attack hoax, and Kim Foxx, the prosecutor of the case who dropped all charges, is being investigated by the FBI, and she now faces up to 20 years in prison for corruption.

Following the charges being dropped, Smollett told the public that he was still going to “fight for the justice, equality, and betterment of marginalized people everywhere.”  He’ll probably even enlist O.J. to help him find the real attackers.

The NAACP Image Awards aired live on TV One Saturday night from the Dolby Theatre in Los Angeles, CA.

New USCIS Acting Director: Some Asylum-Seekers Should Be Halted at Border

The new acting director of the USCIS (U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Services), Ken Cuccinelli, has hit the ground running, and says that Border agents should reject those unlikely to receive asylum at the border instead of allowing all of them in. Nine out of ten asylum seekers are rejected, so that would make a huge difference and keep the backlog growing at incredible rates. The agents union is complaining about the directive because they say the agents should not be making that determination. That is more likely their own personal opinion, since agents would rather have more authority to make these decisions themselves.

From Fox News

President Trump’s recent appointee to head U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Services (USCIS) is apparently wasting little time in making changes at the agency.

According to a report, USCIS Acting Director Ken Cuccinelli sent an email to staffers Tuesday, instructing asylum officers to halt some asylum efforts during initial screenings at U.S. border entry points.

“Asylum officers, you took an oath to support and defend the constitution of the United States,” Cuccinelli wrote, according to BuzzFeed News. “As a public servant your role as an asylum officer requires faithful application of the law.

“Therefore,” the email continued, “USCIS must, in full compliance with the law, make sure we are properly screening individuals who claim fear but nevertheless do not have a significant possibility of receiving a grant of asylum or another form of protection available under our nation’s laws.”

Cuccinelli reminded the officers that they are empowered to combat “frivolous claims” of asylum and should  “ensure that [they] are upholding our nation’s laws by only making positive credible fear determinations in cases that have a significant possibility of success,” the report said.

Backlash Is Building: Anger Grows Over AOC’s ‘Concentration Camps’ Remark [VIDEO]

Congresswoman Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (D-NY) (AOC) has once again put herself at the center of a national controversy this week, with growing calls for a public apology after she compared U.S. immigration centers to Nazi concentration camps.

“Has she ever been to Yad Vashem in Jerusalem or Auschwitz-Birkenau in southern Poland or Dachau in Germany?” asked Fox News’ Bill Hemmer. “’Never Again’ is the phrase that Jews all over the world use to make sure that the extermination between 1939 and 1945 never happens again, and she’s using concentration camps to describe what’s happening on the southern border.”

The Jewish Community Relations Council of New York, which represents over 60 Jewish organizations in New York City, and the Zionist Organization of America (ZOA), America’s largest and oldest pro-Israel group, both slammed Ocasio-Cortez over her comments.

From DailyWire:

In a letter to Ocasio-Cortez, the Jewish Community Relations Council of New York said they were “deeply disturbed” by her comments which “diminishes the evil intent of the Nazis to eradicate the Jewish people.” The group said they would be happy to assist Ocasio-Cortez in scheduling a visit to a concentration camp so she can learn about what happened during the Holocaust. The letter states:

Dear Representative Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez,

We are deeply disturbed by the language used in your recent Instagram live video which seeks to equate the detention centers on America’s southern border with Nazi-era Concentration Camps.

The terms “Concentration Camp” and “Never Again” are synonymous with and evocative of the atrocities committed by Adolf Hitler’s Nazi Germany, in which 6 million European Jews were systematically denied civil and human rights due to their race and ultimately murdered in a state-sponsored genocide. As concerned as we are about the conditions experienced by migrants seeking asylum in the United States, including family separation, unusable facilities, and lack of food, water, and medical resources, the regrettable use of Holocaust terminology to describe these contemporary concerns diminishes the evil intent of the Nazis to eradicate the Jewish people.

Since 1976, the Jewish Community Relations Council of New York has acted as a key resource to the New York Congressional Delegation on issues of concern to the 1.4 million member New York Jewish community. As our city is home to the largest Holocaust survivor community in the United States, we would be pleased to work with you to arrange a visit to a concentration camp, a local Holocaust museum, hear the stories of local survivors, or participate in other educational opportunities in the hopes of better understanding the horrors of the Holocaust.

Until that time, we urge you to refrain from using terminology evocative of the Holocaust to voice concerns about contemporary political issues.

Sincerely,

Charles Temel, President
Cheryl Fishbein, President-Elect
Michael Miller, Executive Vice President and CEO

Ocasio-Cortez is a bombastic idiot who is a tool of the Democratic Party leadership used to float off-the-wall narratives to see if any of them stick.  A truly rare individual, she has proven to know not a whole lot about any subject while still acting like she is an authority on everything.  I call that “moral sophistry,” when someone says something they either know to be false, or don’t know it to be true, but they say it anyway because it helps their overall political narrative when virtue-signaling.

“How in the world is that acceptable? Does she not owe every Jew on this planet an apology?” he asked.

“I think it’s disgusting to compare what the men and women do out on the border right now to that, and it is definitely a slap in the face to a lot of these individuals that have family members that actually went through concentration camps,” a member of the National Border Patrol Council added.

AOC made the wicked accusation during an Instagram live stream on Monday night.

“The United States is running concentration camps on our southern border. That’s exactly what they are. They are concentration camps. If that doesn’t bother you… I like, whatever, I want to talk to the people that are concerned with humanity that ‘Never Again’ means something,” said the lawmaker who sounds like a half-wit gave her an idea – and she just held onto it.

“The fact that concentration camps are now an institutionalized practice in the home of the free is extraordinarily disturbing,” she added.

WATCH:

What’s extraordinarily disturbing is the breadth of her ignorance.  I believe she’s so lacking in knowledge of the subject of concentration camps that she doesn’t realize how awful the comments were.  She is the princess of moral sophistry.

If Nancy Pelosi had a working brain, she would order AOC to visit the Holocaust museum, and then the southern border, to educate the pinhead on the massive differences between the two. But that will never happen, because though she remains silent at this time, Pelosi secretly loves the fact that the de facto Speaker AOC is making the comments, because it helps serve her purpose.

American Jews should take note that nobody in Democrat leadership at this time is coming down on AOC for her comments.  They’ll wait until the backlash gets too big to ignore.  That’s because Democrats always throw groups of constituents already taken for granted under the bus.  They no longer need the Jewish vote to survive.  Their new darling constituency are the millions of illegal aliens they consider as “Unregistered Democrats.”  So, AOC’s comments are like manna from heaven in that they getting a sick, twisted narrative out against Republicans, and all of the anger is directed at a single NY congresswoman who sounds like the south end of a northbound horse.

Eric Swalwell…Give Me Your Guns or Go To Prison

Eric Swalwell is trending at 0% in the polls. He doesn’t believe he deserves that, and I agree. But there is nothing lower, so 0% will have to do. He recently gave a speech where he said that gun owners must turn in all of their rifles or go to prison. (This kind of thinking explains his 0% rating…)

Swalwell said:

“You know, keep your pistols, keep your long rifles, keep your shotguns. I want the most dangerous weapons, the weapons of war, out of the hands of the most dangerous people.”

This illustrates just how uneducated Swalwell is on the subject of guns. It’s not the law-abiding citizens that is the problem, it’s the criminals, and if you use draconian laws like he proposes, only the criminals will have guns. Secondly, rifles are not the deadliest guns in America, pistols are. Most of that is due to the fact that more criminals use handguns, because rifles are hard to conceal. Not only that, but someone shot with a pistol is more likely to die.

From The Daily Caller

Democratic presidential hopeful Eric Swalwell said he would institute a buyback program for assault weapons that would result in jail time for those who resist.

The alternative, he said, would be to “keep them at a hunting club or shooting range.”

The four-term Democratic representative from California appeared on CNN’s “State of the Union” Sunday, telling host Jake Tapper he wants to ban military-style assault weapons and establish a program similar to the one implemented in New Zealand in the wake of the mosque shooting.

“The reason I’ve proposed this is because these weapons are so devastating. I’ve seen this as a prosecutor in the cases that I’ve prosecuted, we’ve seen these in the school shootings from Sandy Hook to Parkland,” he said. “It’s not just the violence that they’ve caused — it’s the fear, the immeasurable fear that our children live in.”

“I want to get rid of that fear.”

Tapper pointed out the “vast majority of gun-related deaths” in the U.S. are not related to semi-automatic assault weapons.

“The vast majority of gun owners are law-abiding citizens who have purchased these weapons legally and used them safely,” he continued.
