IN WHAT WORLD!?

Jussie Smollett’s “award” should be that he’s given slightly over one hour of rec time in the yard.

It shouldn’t come from the NAACP for “Best Supporting Actor” for his work on Empire.

And yet, this is a weird world in which we live.

Smollett has been nominated for the fourth year in a row, and the star of TV’s Blackish says he hopes Jussie wins because “the system worked for him.”

From Daily Wire:

“This is the fourth consecutive year Smollett has been nominated in the Image Awards’ Outstanding Supporting Actor in a Drama Series category,” reports the outlet. “He previously won in that category in 2017 and has also nabbed three different music-related Image Awards for his work on ‘Empire, according to IMDb.”

Smollett has attended the last three NAACP image award shows. This year the event will be hosted by “Blackish” star Anthony Anderson, who told Variety he hopes to see the alleged hate hoaxer give a speech, admitting he’s happy that “the system worked for him.”

Anderson noted, “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. So I’m glad it worked out for him.

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

Smollett went to extraordinary lengths to stage a fake hate crime against himself. He lied to law enforcement.

He lied to America.

Now, he walks away scot-free – albeit, he’ll have to serve some community service time.

Smollett is the definition of “privilege” in America, but don’t expect the left to mention that anytime soon.

What’s wild is that Chicago Mayor Rahm Emanuel, a former top aide to Barack Obama, is ticked off.

And he’s making that abundantly clear…

From The Blaze:

A visibly angry Chicago Mayor Rahm Emanuel on Tuesday blasted the decision to drop all charges against “Empire” actor Jussie Smollett, who was accused by police of orchestrating a fake hate crime attack against himself to advance his career.

“From top to bottom, this is not on the level,” Emanuel told reporters, adding “there needs to be a level of accountability throughout the system, and this sends an unambiguous message that there is no accountability, and that is wrong.”

Smollett isn’t off the hook just yet.

There’s a chance he still could actually serve hard time.

We’ll have to wait and see.

Reactions:

In exchange for no jail time, make Smollett do a PSA admitting he’s a dipshit

The Jussie Smollett indictment includes one count per crime alleged in his two initial contacts with police. So, one count for saying he was attacked, one count for the description, one count for allegations he was hit with bleach, etc.

Jussie Smollett was indicted on 16 felony counts related to his hoax attack…

I’m starting to think he’s not gonna get that raise he wanted.

In 2007, Smollett “provided false information” to police after receiving a DUI.

In-N-Out Burger Tells San Fran They Won’t Enforce Vax Proof Mandates

The government’s expectation that fast food workers should enforce a mandate they didn’t ask for is ludicrous on its face.

For many Americans, there is a very unnerving feeling when it comes to the idea of having to prove your vaccination status in order to participate in the everyday machinations of society.  It feels icky, as though our ideas of freedom and equality are somehow variable and malleable.

Sure, you have the freedom to refuse a vaccine, but that choice is going to make you a second-class citizen in a great many ways, ranging from potentially losing your job as a police officer, to being unable to eat inside at your favorite fast food joint.

It’s that latter issue that has the higher-ups at In-N-Out Burger growing irate.

The city of San Francisco temporarily closed an In-N-Out fast-food restaurant over the company’s refusal to force customers to prove they are vaccinated against the coronavirus.

The San Francisco Department of Public Health closed the Fisherman’s Wharf In-N-Out location on Oct. 14 after the popular burger joint did not check the vaccination status of customers, which violates an August mandate from the city requiring indoor diners to show proof of vaccination.

The restaurant’s corporate team was irate over the entire debacle.

“Our store properly and clearly posted signage to communicate local vaccination requirements,” In-N-Out Burger’s Chief Legal and Business Officer, Arnie Wensinger said in a statement to Fox News. “After closing our restaurant, local regulators informed us that our restaurant Associates must actively intervene by demanding proof of vaccination and photo identification from every Customer, then act as enforcement personnel by barring entry for any Customers without the proper documentation.”

“We refuse to become the vaccination police for any government,” Wensinger declared, slamming the San Francisco Department of Health’s requirements as “unreasonable, invasive, and unsafe” and accusing the city of asking restaurants to “segregate Customers” based on vaccine documentation.

Given the violence and vitriol that we’ve seen in some instances of attempted vaccine-proof enforcement, there are likely very few entry-level fast food workers who are qualified to handle such situations, which could open these corporations up to serious legal liabilities.

Items Belonging to Brian Laundrie Discovered as Medical Examiner Arrives on Scene

This is HUGE news!

Published

on

After several long and tedious weeks of searching, there may finally be a break in the case of Brian Laundrie, a fugitive who is the single person of interest in the death of Gabby Petito.

Laundrie disappeared shortly before Petito’s body was found in Bridger-Teton National Forest, near a campsite that the two visited during a cross country road trip before Brian returned home alone and refused to cooperate with authorities.

Then, much to the dismay of investigators, Brian went hiking in the Carlton Reserve near his Florida home and never returned.

Now, investigators at a different section of the wildlife area have discovered items believed to belong to Brian, calling in his family – and a medical examiner – to the scene.

Chris and Roberta Laundrie, the parents of fugitive Brian Laundrie, ventured into Florida’s Myakkahatchee Creek Environmental Park early Wednesday morning, where Fox News Digital saw an officer apparently tell parents that law enforcement “might have found something.”

Steven Bertolino, who represents the Laundrie family, confirmed to Fox News Digital that the Laundries informed law enforcement last night of their intentions to search the park and met officers there. Bertolino confirmed that while searching areas that Brian frequented, “some articles belonging to Brian were found.”

And also:

Officers are now conducting a more thorough search of the area, Bertolino said. A spokesperson for the Sarasota County Medical Examiner’s Office confirmed that the office was called to the Myakkahatchee on Wednesday, but would not say anything more.

The search for Brian Laundrie has drawn national attention in recent weeks, as Americans continue to clamor for justice for Gabby Petito.
