Kenosha Residents Prepare for Trouble, No Matter the Rittenhouse Verdict

As of the end of the business day on Tuesday, the jury had yet to deliver a verdict.

While the Kyle Rittenhouse trial will come and go, fading into a distant memory the way that time always forces things to do, we may very well look back at this time in our history and see the repercussions of the verdict as a symptom and not an illness.

That’s because, no matter what the outcome of this trial is, there is a very real chance for violence.  One half of our nation will never accept justice if it isn’t their version of it.

This sad reality has Kenosha on edge.

In the heart of downtown, small-business owners were prepared for the worst, fearing protesters, crime and vandalism may return regardless of the outcome in the Kyle Rittenhouse trial.

As closing arguments got underway Monday, residents and business owners braced for a possible repeat of August 2020 when demonstrators took to the streets after a white police officer shot Jacob Blake, a black resident, leaving him partially paralyzed.

“No matter which way the verdict goes, somebody is going to be upset,” said Lyna Postuchow, owner of A Summer’s Garden, a floral shop. “You always have to be ready because you don’t know what’s going to happen, but we hope cooler minds prevail.”

The sentiment was spreading:

Several businesses on 6th Avenue between 56th and 57th streets that were targeted by demonstrators were either closed or unoccupied Monday. Owners of open establishments said they were waiting to see what comes next.

For safety reasons, Gus Harris, owner of Flex & Burn Fitness Center, said he plans to board up his gym like he did in the summer of 2020.

“Obviously, we’re concerned. Definitely,” he said.

As of the end of the business day on Tuesday, the jury had yet to deliver a verdict.

Chris Cuomo Preparing Massive Lawsuit Aimed at Former Employer

But CNN INSTANTLY put the kibosh on it!

Published

on

Things over at CNN have been rough in recent days, and they certainly aren’t smoothing out anytime soon.

The infotainment network is facing an onslaught of trouble of late, thanks largely to the actions of Chris Cuomo – formerly the top draw at the station – thanks to his inappropriate actions in regard to his brother’s sexual assault scandal during his time as the Governor of New York.

Cuomo has since been fired, and a war of words has erupted between he and his former employer.  Just yesterday it was reported that CNN was rebuking Cuomo’s claims that they were aware of the poor behavior of their primetime star.

Today, Cuomo is setting himself up to sue CNN.

Fired CNN host Chris Cuomo is set to sue the network if it balks at paying him at least $18 million to cover what’s left on his contract, sources told The Post on Monday.

Cuomo, 51, has hired lawyers and is preparing to file the lawsuit over the remainder of the four-year contract he signed last year — after a bitter back-and-forth about what the network knew of his secret efforts to aid his embattled brother, then-Gov. Andrew Cuomo, said sources familiar with the matter.

His contract was reportedly worth $6 million annually, leaving between $18 million and $20 million that he would be owed, sources said, adding that Chris Cuomo would also likely seek damages.

The network was not entertained by the idea.

But CNN has “no intention of paying [Chris] Cuomo a penny,” an insider said.

“If he gets a settlement, there would be uproar,” the source added.

Cuomo has also left his SiriusXM radio program this week, leaving the longtime anchor with no audience to complain to.

CNN SHAME: Don Lemon Now Accused of Feeding Information to Jussie Smollett

How long until Lemon is fired?

Published

on

CNN has spent a great deal of time and resources attempting to convince the nation that they are a real news station, but to no avail.

The infotainment corporation has been in a near-constant state of editorial retching, spewing forth a vast number of strange angles and concocted soundbites that sound far more hard-hitting in print than they do when they are over-acted by one of their on-air talking heads.

But worse still is the fact that CNN anchors are now inserting themselves directly into the news, lampooning any claim of credibility that they may have had left.

Chris Cuomo’s attempts to use his media resources to help his brother escape his sex assault scandals cost him his job.

Nowhere are concerns that Don Lemon may soon face similar admonishment on account of how he became a part of Jussie Smollett’s bizarre case.

Jussie Smollett, on trial for allegedly staging a hate crime against himself, testified Monday that he had correspondence with CNN’s Don Lemon during the early parts of the Chicago Police Department’s (CPD) investigation into the incident.

Smollett, 39, testified that he received a text from Lemon, supposedly relaying information that the CPD didn’t believe Smollett’s account of what happened, Fox News’ Matt Finn reported from the Windy City courthouse.

As of this writing, there has been no official word from CNN on the matter.

Lemon is also facing charges of sexually assaulting a man in a bar, in which the television personality is alleged to have shoved his fingers down his pants and then forced the victim to smell them, while making incredibly offensive statements about the man’s sexuality.
