ABC Approves ‘Roseanne’ Spinoff, However There’s One Thing Missing

Guess we’ll have to wait and see what’s going to happen with this.

Published

One of the tragic side effects of Roseanne Barr’s show getting cancelled after her controversial Twitter remarks was that a lot of folks lost their jobs who depended on that income to survive, not to mention it put her co-stars out of work after just getting them back on board for the series revival.

Well, it seems Roseanne herself, along with ABC have reached some sort of settlement for the rights to the characters and are doing a spinoff called “The Connors,” without the former title star having any sort of involvement with the project.

How this is going to work exactly is anyone’s guess, but it seems reasonable to believe that since much of the revival’s success was due to Barr’s support of President Trump, that particular part of the fanbase will be largely absent and will leave a sizable dent in the ratings.

The show’s star, Roseanne Barr, was let go and the show was canceled abruptly three weeks ago following a racist tweet by Barr, but ABC said in a release that the network is starting a new show about the Conner family without her.

Barr stoked outrage on social media after she compared former Obama administration official Valerie Jarrett to an ape, and she will not be involved in the new show, tentatively titled “The Conners.”

“Roseanne Barr will have no financial or creative involvement in the new series,” ABC said.

The show will deal with “parenthood, dating, an unexpected pregnancy, financial pressures, aging, and in-laws in working-class America,” ABC added. “Through it all, the fights, the coupon cutting, the hand-me-downs, the breakdowns—with love, humor, and perseverance, the family prevails.”

Barr agreed to let the show go forward without her and made a statement about the settlement she came to with the network.

“I regret the circumstances that have caused me to be removed from ‘Roseanne,'” she said. “I agreed to the settlement in order that 200 jobs of beloved cast and crew could be saved, and I wish the best for everyone involved.”

Again, it’s highly doubtful that this is going to be a runaway success like the original series and its recent revival, as the decision to fire Barr didn’t really go over very well with a lot of Trump supporters, and those folks made up a huge swath of her new viewership.

Guess we’ll have to wait and see what’s going to happen with this.

Actor’s Hate Hoax Planned After Previous Propaganda Effort Was Panned

It is only with the sharpest of hatreds that someone could stitch together a diabolic piece of propaganda such as this.

Published

on

Jussie Smollett

There are very, very few things in this world that are more despicable than hate crimes or hate speech, but faking one for attention is certainly on that short, short list.

That’s exactly what actor Jussie Smollett is being accused of this week after police interrogated two extras from the set of Empire, who claim that the actor paid them a significant amount of money to “attack” him, yelling racial and homophobic slurs.

Smollett’s credibility is falling apart, and police would like to have another word with the actor ASAP.

Now, evidence of Smollett’s premeditation is coming to light, and it doesn’t look good for the Fox actor.

Empire actor Jussie Smollett “concocted” a “staged attacked” against himself after receiving a racist letter addressed to him failed to evoke a “bigger reaction,” a source tells CBS 2.

“When the letter didn’t get enough attention, he concocted the staged attack,” one source told CBS 2’s Brad Edwards, who reported “other sources corroborated that information.”

A letter contained “white powder” was delivered on January 22 to a Chicago set where Empire was filming in the days leading up to the alleged staged assault. In a statement to CNN, Chicago police spokesperson Anthony Guglielmi confirmed a HAZMAT team scrambled to Cinespace Studios, where the program was being shot, after the letter was found.

It is only with the sharpest of hatreds that someone could stitch together a diabolic piece of propaganda such as this, and Smollett’s future in the industry isn’t looking too good.

MAGA Hoaxer Could Face Serious Jail Time for Fake Hate Crime

And the liberals use to call *us* deplorable?!

Published

on

MAGA

The lengths to which the liberal left will go in order to disparate President Donald Trump have been disturbing, to say the least.

We have seen no shortage of wild and violent attempts to disparage The Donald.  What began with Kathy Griffin’s insane decapitation photoshoot has morphed into very real violence, and very fake news.

The latest attempt by Hollywood to delegitimize the President comes to us from Empire actor Jussie Smollett, who police now believe paid two actors to “assault” him, while shouting slogans tied to President Trump.

Smollett is claiming to have no foreknowledge of the attack, but police aren’t convinced.  Their investigation into the incident has revealed that the Nigerian brothers who claim Smollett put them up to it even tried to drum up the anti-MAGA hat tropes as well.

Documents prove two Nigerian brothers who work as extras on the highly rated Fox drama bought the rope which was found around Smollett’s neck at Crafty Beaver Hardware Store in Chicago.

The brothers made the purchase on the weekend of January 25.

They also bought two red plain hats that they wore during the alleged attack, according to sources close to the investigation.

Police believe that the red hats were purchased at a local beauty supply store in the Uptown section of Chicago.

Thanks to his deliberate and deceitful act, Smollett could find himself behind bars for a substantial amount of time.

Filing a false report to police in the State of Illinois is considered an act of disorderly conduct, which is a Class 4 felony.

That means that anyone found guilty could face between one and three years in prison.

By law, the crime of disorderly conduct is committed in Illinois by anyone who ‘transmits or causes to be transmitted in any manner to any peace officer, public officer or public employee a report to the effect that an offense will be committed, is being committed, or has been committed, knowing at the time of the transmission that there is no reasonable ground for believing that the offense will be committed, is being committed, or has been committed.’

Chicago Police have indicated a desire to re-interview Smollett regarding the incident.
