Jussie Smollet became a household name after he staged an attack by "Trump supporters." He reported to police that he was the victim of a racist and homophobic attack carried out by two men in Chicago. He claimed they put a rope around his neck, poured bleach on him, and yelled “This is MAGA country!”
Then the truth came out: Smollett was lying. He staged the whole thing.
The former Empire actor has since faced legal trouble for his hate crime hoax, and became the laughing stock of the country for weeks.
Now his sister, Jurnee, is demanding that people stop "falsely accusing" her brother of the hoax. “It’s been fucking painful,” she cried to the Hollywood Reporter. “One of the most painful things my family’s ever experienced...to love someone as much as we love my brother, and to watch someone who you love that much go through something like this, that is so public, has been devastating.”
“But everyone who knows me knows that I love my brother and I believe my brother,” Jurnee added. “We are blessed to have a community of people who know him, and know that he wouldn’t do this.”
Well. Just lost all respect for her. What she was doing was correct. Keep quiet. He’s your brother and blood, so you support him. I get it. But don’t do it publicly because we all know he did it. By publicly supporting him, you support his behavior which is despicable.

The city of Chicago filed a civil lawsuit against Jussie Smollett for refusing to repay roughly $130,000 that the Chicago Police Department spent on investigating the now alleged hate crime hoax. Chicago police alleged that Smollett had staged the attack in an attempt to gain public sympathy to benefit his career.
Smollett was also arrested and indicted by a grand jury in Chicago on 16 counts of felony disorderly conduct in connection to filing a false report about an alleged hate crime against himself. The charges were later abruptly dropped in a move that sparked widespread outrage.
Maybe if he didn't stage a hate crime hoax, then people wouldn't accuse him of doing so. Now he AND his sister look like idiots.
Some folks can't stop lying even when caught
Very few will back up those liars
after they are caught
I wish I had a sister

You'll Never Believe Which Hollywood Star Was Almost Lured Into Pedophile Island
In the coming weeks and months, I believe that we are going to learn a lot more about Jeffrey Epstein, Ghislaine Maxwell, and everyone else involved than we'd really like to know.
It's hard to believe that this sort of thing - that is sex trafficking - is going on in the world and not only that, but how massive it is.
Teachers Concerned That Parents Might Overhear Them Brainwashing Kids About This
Now that school is starting back up, many parents have opted to keep their kids home and either homeschooling their kids or public schooling them from home.
Now, keep in mind that this public school at home is not the same as homeschooling. Even a lot of the new homeschoolers aren't homeschooling, it's more of "pandemic schooling".
NFL Is Making Another Big Change to the National Anthem and the American Flag
If you keep up with my writings, then you already know that I'm done with professional sports.
I'm not going to support bending a knee to a group of terrorists who are destroying our country. Until they change their stance on politics being brought into sports and stop catering to liberals, I'm done.
Nasty Nancy and UpChuck Schumer Singing Different Tune After President Trump Signs Executive Orders to Aid the Country
As we are all aware, House and Senate Democrats led by House Speaker Nancy Pelosi and Senate Minority Leader Chuck Schumer are holding the American people hostage once again.
The additional funding for unemployment insurance has run out and they were supposed to have negotiated another stimulus package including another check, but they have a wish list that they want to be fulfilled which includes agreeing to mail-in voting in November.
Gov. Newsom Cried: California Can't Afford Extra Unemployment Benefits
Over the weekend President Donald Trump signed executive orders for the following: adding $400 to federal unemployment extension (which replaces the $600 unemployment funds that expired last month), a payroll tax holiday, and eviction protections.
Of the $400 for unemployment, $300 will be paid by the federal government and the additional $100 is to be paid by the state.
Steve Scalise Warns: 'Joe Biden Wants to Take Our Guns Away'
Rep. Steve Scalise warned Americans during a Fox News interview that former Vice President Joe Biden wants to take our guns away. He suggested that he may not be coming right out and saying it but that he is letting the anti-gun left push the agenda for him. That way he doesn't have to get his hands dirty.
Scalise spoke about Americans using guns for self preservation, “Every day in America people use guns to save their lives.”
