‘YUGE’ FAIL: Beto O’Rourke Holds Anti-Trump Rally In His Home Town Of El Paso But Few Showed Up Compared To Trump’s Rally

Robert Francis O'Rourke giving a speech in the "March For Truth" taken place in El Paso, Texas.

With mariachis and a handful of speakers giving speeches in Spanish, the Irish former House Representative Robert Francis O’Rourk, also known as Beto, held a rally in his home town of El Paso, Texas, Monday evening at the same time as President Trump help his rally also in El Paso, Texas. The purpose of Beto O’Rourk’s rally was to expose President Trump as a liar after the president claimed in his State of the Union speech that El Paso became a safer place once a barrier was built on the southern border between El Paso Texas and Juares, Mexico. Many expected for Beto to announce his candidacy to run for president in 2020 but he did not make such announcement.

Beto O’Rourke surprisingly did not enter the stage skateboarding like in his previous rallies when he was campaigning for the Senate seat against Ted Cruz. O’Rourke came in with lots of energy to host what appears to be at most 1,000 people in the crowd although the media is reporting 5,000 attendees. While Beto was giving his speech, the music from Trump’s rally could be heard from a few miles away.

“March For Truth” was the name of the rally, focus on pro-illegal immigration and attacking the border wall. Beto stated that the wall on the southern border made El Paso less safe. “Here, as a city that’s been one of the safest in the United States of America for 20 years and counting, safe long before a wall built here in 2008. In fact, a little less safe since that wall was built,” said Beto to his crowd. On the contrary, Juarez, Mexico, where women are killed daily and the cartel wars decapitate each other is the next door neighbor of El Paso and the only reason why that crime does not spread to Texas is because there is a wall in between the two countries. Does Beto not care about the women in his home town that could be killed without a wall? Does Beto care about the human trafficking and cartels crossing to America? Perhaps not. The good news: Beto did not announce he would run for President.

FROM VICTIM TO CRIMINAL: Jussie Smollett Arrested For Hate Crime Hoax

Jussie Smollett's mugshot after his arrest for fabricating hate crime hoax. (02/21/19)

Thursday morning, Jussie Smollett willingly surrender to the Chicago Police Department after found guilty for orchestrating his own hate crime. The “Empire” actor pulled the stunt because he was unhappy with his salary paid during the show. Smollett then hire the Osundairo who also worked in the set of “Empire” to help him hoax the racist hate crime, blaming the crime on Trump supporters. The brothers were paid with a personal check for the amount of $4,000.

The Chicago Chief of Police Eddie Johnson held a press conference to talk about the Smollett case and timeline regarding the matter. Superintendent Johnson stated that 48-hours after the crime was reported to Chicago Police, they knew the entire incident was staged but proceed to treat Smollett as a victim since there was not enough evidence to confirm their suspicions.

The Chicago Police used all the technology to their advantage and obtained footage of the specific timeline that led them to the Osundairo brothers who had fled the country to Nigeria only hours after staging the crime. Originally, Smollett refused to give up his phone to detectives, but once he turned it in, it was found that the phone was heavily redacted. Once the information was retracted, Detectives were able to see that Smollett and the Osundairo brothers spoke to each other an hour before the incident, an hour after the incident, and during the time the bothers were in Nigeria. Once the bothers return to Chicago, they were held as suspects, and later worked with police and confessed to the entire thing. The Osundairo’s statement led the investigation to spin where the brothers then went from suspects to witnesses.

Jussie Smollett’s attorneys offered new evidence to postpone the grand jury but that turned out to be false. However, the Osundairo brothers did show up before the grand jury and their testimony, along with the current evidence, was enough for the detectives to conclude that Smollett was no long a victim but the main suspect.

Today, Jussie Smollett is under police custody for fabricating the hate crime story and filing a false police report. However, we are unaware of the current investigation statues that the FBI is conducting on “the hate letter” that Jussie Smollett claims have received through the mail on the set of “Empire.”

Superintendent Johnson is requesting Smollett for an apology to the city for using not only its resources, but for using something so symbolic like a noose knowing what it means to the black community. The Superintendent assures that no homicide resource were taken away due to this incident; He confronted the media by telling them, “You all gave this so much attention that it probably deserves. So when you get the opportunity, the shooting victims and families in this city that are victims of these crimes, give them the same amount of attention. This shouldn’t have gotten the attention that it did, but it did for his celebrity status.”

The President of course weight in with his opinion over Twitter:

“Jussie Smollett- what about MAGA and tens of millions of people you insulted with your racist and dangerous comments? #MAGA”

JUST IN: Jussie Smollett Charged With Felony Disorderly Conduct For Filing A False Police Report

Published

Wednesday, the Chicago Police Department stated: “Jussie Smollett is now officially classified as a suspect in a criminal investigation by Chicago Police for filing a false police report (Class 4 felony). Detectives are currently presenting evidence before a Cook County Grand Jury.” Detectives will make contact with Smollett’s legal team to negotiate a reasonable surrender for his arrest.

Additional details:

The indictment charge against Jussie Smollett is separate from the ongoing FBI investigation regarding the hate letter that was sent to the set of “Empire.” Sending hate mail is a federal crime and, based on the behavior from Smollett, it seems as though the letter may be a hoax as well. The white substance found in the envelope was confirmed to be crushed aspirins.

Smollett’s legal team (Todd Pugh and Victor Henderson) released a statement:

“Like any other citizen, Mr. Smollett enjoys the presumption of innocence, particularly when there has been an investigation like this one where information, both true and false, has been repeatedly leaked. Given this circumstances, we intend to conduct a thorough investigation and to mount an aggressive defense.”

Prior to the indictment, a video of the Osundairo brothers was released where the two were seen buying the supplies for the hoax.

 

Populist Media did not report on Smollett’s alleged attack sooner for the simple reason that we were unsure of the story was true. Once we were certain that the obvious hoax was indeed a hoax, we jumped in to report about the case. When Chicago Police continue to leak details on the on going investigation, it was clear the investigation was coming to an end.

Today, TMZ  and Deadline reported, that according to reliable sources,  Smollett’s scenes in episodes of the Lee Daniels and Danny Strong co-created series are being slashed for production on “Empire” this week after the Nigerian Osundairo brother confessed about the entire hate crime hoax.

“Smollett was supposed to have 9 scenes and a big musical in the show, but 5 of his scenes have been cut, and his musical number has been 86’d. As for the remaining 4 scenes, we’re told he’s no longer the focus. The scene features an ensemble, meaning he’s flanked by a number of cast members,” reported TMZ. The produces are currently working non-stop to make adjustments to the scrip of ‘Empire.’

Rumors begin to flow about Smollett’s reason behind the hate crime hoax. One of the main rumors was that “Empire” was eliminating Smollett’s role from the show and he wanted a reason to stay relevant. Whether the speculations were true or not, it seems as though the hit TV show “Empire” has decided to make Smollett’s nightmare into a reality.

After hiring the Nigerian Osundairo brother to hoax a phony racist hate crime on January 29th, 2019, for the amount of $4,000 and afterwards filing a false report to law enforcement, Jussie Smollett is expected to appear in front of a grand jury today and his case may lead to a felony indictment.
