From the very beginning of the Jussie Smollett hate hoax mess, Cook County State’s Attorney Kim Foxx has made it very apparent whose side she is on… damn the law and ethics. And the more that facts surface in her involvement in all this, the more it becomes evident that she is an Obama foot soldier.
Early last month, Smollett was indicted on 16 felony counts for staging a hate crime against himself. The Chicago Police Department worked a ton of overtime to get to the bottom of the case and when they did they were furious to come to the conclusion that Smollett was the perpetrator himself. A preponderance of evidence just screams it. “It pissed everybody off,” Chicago Police Superintendent Eddie Johnson said at the time.
Chicago Police Chief Eddie Johnson held a press conference to announce that his investigators had determined that Jussie Smollett staged the hate crime against himself. His anger was easily seen and he wasn’t the only one ticked off. Chicago Mayor and Obama crony Rahm Emanuel was frosted over this as well. Prosecutor Kim Foxx did not notify the Chicago PD or the mayor before dropping all charges after confabbing with a Michelle Obama representative. Foxx simply made the sixteen felony counts against Smollett disappear. She gave no reason either.
If justice were served, Smollett would serve many decades behind bars for what he did. But Foxx counted his acting as community service and said she believed he had already made restitution. She knows he’s guilty. Chief Johnson strikes me as an honest man and the police are trying to stand up to the Chicago Democratic machine. That’s worse than the mob.
A rally in support of Kim Foxx just happened in which at least one speaker flat out called the FOP racist “blue klux klan.” Foxx did not object to that and carried on with her speech. After her extemely short presser I asked if she agrees that all police are racist: pic.twitter.com/kqM4G8hAze

Chicago Police Union President Kevin Graham is enraged over all this and is calling for Foxx to immediately resign. Good luck with that. Duane Mellema, head of the North Suburban Association of Chiefs of Police representing more than 30 departments, said the no-confidence vote taken Tuesday by his group was unanimous.
Citing the Fraternal Order of Police’s recent vote of no confidence on the State’s Attorney, indicating the group’s pointed lack of support in Foxx, Graham said:
“We’re saying: this is enough. We’re asking for her to step down, the FOP in Chicago took a vote of no confidence and so did the police chiefs around Cook County.”
“This is just the tip of the iceberg.”
“We have had problems getting felony charges approved for battery to police officers.
“I’ve had officers, in my office, where their kneecaps were broken, where their fingertips were nearly bit off, and we can’t get felony charges approved on this.”
Smollett is connected to a number of high-level Democrats such as Kamala Harris and Maxine Waters. That would also include Barack and Michelle Obama. Kim Foxx also shares those connections along with a very cozy relationship with a mutual benefactor of the Obamas, George Soros. Soros donated $408k to a Super PAC that supported Foxx’s election in 2016. Suddenly, none of this is surprising in the least.
Smollett is now refusing to repay $130,000 to the Chicago Police Department for overtime accrued on his case. The city of Chicago is now suing Smollett and Smollett’s attorneys are threatening to drag Chicago’s leaders into court. This just makes Chicago look worse and worse.
And Foxx and her followers seem to be ginning up violence towards the Chicago police as well. From Breitbart:
“A supporter of Cook County Attorney Kim Foxx, whose office recently dropped all charges against Empire actor Jussie Smollett, referred to the Chicago Fraternal Order of Police as the “Blue Klux Klan” in a Saturday afternoon press conference — a racial slur the top prosecutor would not refute when asked whether she concurred with the comparison.
“Fox News correspondent Matt Finn reported the eye-opening comment was made by Black Lives Matter activist Jamal Greene ahead of Foxx’s remarks on the Smollett case at Rev. Jesse Jackson Sr.’s Rainbow PUSH Coalition office in Chicago. As Kim Foxx made her way out of the press conference, Finn pressed the attorney repeatedly about whether she endorsed Greene’s remarks.
“Ms. Foxx, do you think the FOP is the blue klux klan? Do you think that every police officer is racist in this city?” You’re going to let somebody say that?” the reporter asked Foxx, who did not once acknowledge the question.
“In her remarks before supporters and the media, Foxx openly wondered if her race had something to do with the harsh criticism she has faced since her office announced that charges against Smollett had been dropped. The actor is accused by the Chicago Police Department of staging what he claimed to be a racist and homophobic attack in January. The Empire actor told officers two masked men assaulted him, doused him with an unknown chemical substance, and shouted “This is MAGA country! before fleeing.
“I have been asking myself for the last two weeks what is this really about,” Kim Foxx said. “As someone who has lived in this city, who came up in the projects of this city to serve as the first African American woman in this role, it is disheartening to me … that when we get in these positions somehow the goalposts change.”’
Rev. Michel Pfleger, a Catholic priest and a communist who has defended Foxx, noted that all of the police chiefs who attended Thursday’s news conference are white.
“So Pathetic that FOP Kevin Graham and a room full of ALL WHITE police chiefs stand asking for Kim Foxx to resign,” Pfleger posted on Twitter. “The MAGA culture that lives in Law Enforcement is one of the reasons Black and Brown communities don’t trust police…..Bull Connor lives…”
That’s rich coming from a communist priest considering many on the police force speaking against Foxx are black as well. Foxx also responded to calls by various critics to resign, saying that she will complete her term that ends next year and has plans to run for re-election. Shameless chutzpah Chicago-style.
