March 29th, 2019, at 8:10pm, Kim Foxx, State Attorney for Cook County, Illinois, and Prosecutor in the Jussie Smollett case, issued an article in the Chicago Tribune on her reasons behind dropping the charges against Smollett- in regards to his fake reports of being attacked in the name of “MAGA,” on January 29th 2019..

In her article, Foxx states the law and evidence- with minimal severity, as well as the crime being a lessor one… only a Class 4 Felony, are the reasons why charges were dropped against Smollett.
“So, why isn’t Smollett in prison or at least on trial? There are two different answers to this, both equally important.
First, the law. There were specific aspects of the evidence and testimony presented to the office that would have made securing a conviction against Smollett uncertain. In determining whether or not to pursue charges, prosecutors are required to balance the severity of the crime against the likelihood of securing a conviction. For a variety of reasons, including public statements made about the evidence in this case, my office believed the likelihood of securing a conviction was not certain.
Another key factor is that the crime here was a Class 4 felony, the least serious category, which also covers things like falsely pulling a fire alarm in school and “draft card mutilation.” These felonies are routinely resolved, particularly in cases involving suspects with no prior criminal record, long before a case ever nears a courtroom and often without either jail time or monetary penalties. Any prosecutor, law-enforcement leader or elected official not grandstanding or clouded by political expediency understands the purpose of sentencing guidelines.”
She then adamantly expresses her distaste for falsely reporting hate crimes- for they only make the public afraid of reporting actual crimes. Although she admits that anyone who does falsely report a hate crime deserves public scrutiny, she also cautions people to, “separate the people to whom we are angry from the people of whom we are afraid.”
Actually, that is very good advice.
Americans should separate the people to whom they are angry, from the people to whom they are afraid. In today’s society, political stances have torn apart relationships on many levels. We shouldn’t allow our anger over a family member or close friend, cloud our perceptions from the root of the issues, to which we should be very afraid. So, here’s some background info on Kim Foxx via a recent expose piece on the blog site,Illinois Watchdogs for Constitutional Rights.
Kim Foxx, a Chicago, Illinois native and Democratic Party member, took office in December of 2016 as Cook County, IL State’s Attorney. She oversees the second largest prosecutor’s office in America, and is the second African American to hold this position. (Per her Wikipedia Page) Her resume is highly impressive, putting her in a wonderful position for many influential connections within Hollywood and Government. One of those connections would be the very popular, CA- Senator, Kamala Harris, to whom Foxx has shared the limelight with.
On May 9th, 2018, Kim Foxx and Senator Kamala Harris, along with many others, took to the stage as featured speakers at Vote for Justice: An Evening of Empowerment with Artists & Activists, which was highly promoted by The SOZE Agency. If you’ve never heard of The SOZE Agency, this is a creative agency who’s mission is to help promote, as they say on their website, “People (Authenticity), Planet (Compassion), and Profit (Equity)… in that order…” They focus on building creative campaigns and platforms for their clients, to bring awareness to issues within society, with unique and diverse messages. You’ve seen their successes with organizations such as The Women’s March, Planned Parenthood, Google, Truth To Power, etc… the list is very large.
Co- founder of SOZE, Michael Skolnik, has had a tremendous reach within the public. After the 2008 election of former President, Barack Obama, Skolnik prioritized his purposes to help with political issues within society. He is best known for his affiliation with Hollywood types, such as with co- founder of the hip hop label, Def Jam Recordings, Russell Simmons. (Together, Skolnik and Simmons run Globalgrind.com.)
With the links between Activist- Michael Skolnik, Senator- Kamala Harris, and Prosecutor- Kim Foxx, Jussie Smollett has a strong platform of publicity to work from. That’s not all, though. Big Money flows within these links. Per the expose blog site, Illinois Watchdogs for Constitutional Rights, Skolnik, Harris, Foxx and Smollett all have another common denominator… George Soros.
SOZE is publicly open about working with Soros organizations.
We all know the corruption that lies in the wake of super Globalism supporter, George Soros. The man who crashed the Bank of London by betting $1 billion against the British Pound. The same man who influenced the collapse of Greece, and the same man who spends millions every year on progressive policy campaigns in the United States. This same man, also unwanted from his own home country of Hungary, under the guise of his philanthropy through his many organizations, like Open Societies Foundation, Soros Fund Management, and Soros Foundation, has invested up to $9 million in Hillary Clinton supporting PACs, as well as millions more in Obama supporting organizations. Soros’ ties run deep within the progressive regime, which does not come to a surprise that he has also invested in the likes of organizations such as The SOZE Agency; by joining his MoveOn.org forces with Kamala Harris during the Kavanaugh hearings and coining the hashtag #StopKavanaughNow; as well as giving over $400,000 to a super PAC that supported Kim Foxx for Cook County, Illinois State’s Attorney.
So, with what we know about George Soros and his humble efforts at being so giving to the Progressive Movement in America, as well as his efforts of pushing Socialist/ Globalist politics within society, are we to be angry at him, or afraid?
Thankfully, Kim Foxx opens the door within her own article for readers to give her a review, which leads us to the question:
When prosecutors are backed by Big Money, and connected to so many special interest groups, can justice really be served in a blind way?
I think Kim gave us that answer.
Thank you to Illinois Watchdogs for Constitutional Rights for their extended resources.
