There’s a famous scene in the 1942 movie Casablanca where Claude Rains as Capt. Louis Renault says, “I’m shocked, shocked to find that gambling is going on in here.” Well the people of Chicago may not be shocked about the corruption occurring all around them, but the rest of the nation raised some eyebrows when all charges were dropped against Mr. Hoax-meister, Jessie Smollett.
People in other areas of the country didn’t really know how brazen Chicago corruption really is, until authorities suddenly dropped all 16 counts against Jussie Smollett. It’s a bitter pill to swallow when evidence is thrown in your face that the law of the land really is for sale.
We knew corruption existed in Chicago for a long time, because it’s a matter of history that ballot boxes were being stuffed all night long in Cook County. Illinois on November 8, 1960 to elect John F. Kennedy. But, even with all the corruption that surrounds us, it still hurts to admit America is frequently no different than some third world nation where the sewers and phone systems don’t work.
Jussie Smollett, to our knowledge, never served in the military. It’s likely that none of his friends or relatives have ever served in the military. So, why are we even mentioning him or his hoax attempt and legal machinations on MilitaryCorruption.com? We decided to post an article because of the clear comparison we can make between civilian and military justice. It turns out they are similar in some ways.
When all charges were dropped against Jussie Smollett, many of us on the MCC staff began to laugh. There has never been a clearer example of a two-tiered justice system, other than the military, of course. Most American’s do not realize their military has a two-tiered justice system that’s probably been operating since George Washington took over the Continental Army.
The little military judicial system is used on a regular basis allowing the admirals and generals (flag-ranking officers) to retire to avoid prosecution. It’s the tightest good-old-boy club you will ever find anywhere.
The motto, “Equal Justice Under Law” is an absolute joke, especially where the military is concerned. When you are on active duty in the military, you are NOT PART OF the Democracy, you only WORK FOR the Democracy.

Jussie Smollett tells Chicago police he was physically attacked by two men in downtown Chicago while out getting food from a Subway restaurant at 2 a.m. Smollett tells authorities the men used racial and homophobic slurs, wrapped a rope around his neck and poured an “unknown substance” on him. Smollett told detectives that the attackers yelled he was in “MAGA country,” an apparent reference to President Donald Trump’s “Make America Great Again” campaign slogan.
Police news conference on Jussie Smollett arrest. Police said Smollett fabricated the attack because he was “dissatisfied” with his salary.
Smollett’s family issues a statement calling the attack a racial and homophobic hate crime.
Smollett gives a concert in West Hollywood, California, opening with an emotional speech.
Chicago police say Smollett turned over some, but not all, of the phone records detectives requested as part of their investigation.
Smollett appears in his first television interview since the alleged attack, saying he’s “pissed off” at not just the attack but those doubting his story. Chicago detectives say they’re interviewing two “persons of interest” from surveillance video.
Chicago police spokesman Anthony Guglielimi says the two “persons of interest” are now considered potential suspects. The men were arrested and being interrogated Friday but have not been charged with a crime.
Police say the investigation has “shifted” after detectives question the two brothers about the attack and release them without charges. Police say they’ve requested a follow-up interview with Smollett.
Chicago police say they’re still seeking a follow-up interview with Smollett after receiving new information that “shifted” their investigation of a reported attack on the “Empire” actor.
Chicago’s top prosecutor, Cook County State’s Attorney Kim Foxx, who dropped all charges against Jussie Smollett. She really didn’t want this case going before a jury for some reason. We have no proof, but our gut tells us that major money was moving around to protect little Jussie Smollett. In America, you only get the justice you can afford.
Chicago’s top prosecutor, Cook County State’s Attorney Kim Foxx, said she was recusing herself from the case, but this was a lie as she had never properly recused herself at all. Her office says the decision to allegedly recuse was made “out of an abundance of caution … to address potential questions of impartiality based upon familiarity with potential witnesses in the case.”
Chicago police say Smollett is officially suspected of filing a false police report when he said he was a victim of a racist, homophobic attack in downtown Chicago late last month. Police also say that two brothers who were questioned about the attack were testifying before a grand jury and detectives were presenting evidence to the grand jury. The Cook County State’s Attorney charged Smollett with disorderly conduct for filing a false police report that he was attacked by two masked men. Police detectives were contacting Smollett’s attorneys to arrange his surrender for arrest.
Chicago police say Smollett turned himself in to face a felony charge of disorderly conduct, which could bring up to three years in prison. Police Superintendent Eddie Johnson says Smollett staged a racist and homophobic attack because he was unhappy with his salary and wanted publicity. Investigators say they have a $3,500 check that Smollett used to pay the two brothers to help him.
All criminal charges against Jussie Smollett were suddenly dropped. “Today, all criminal charges against Jussie Smollett were dropped and his record has been wiped clean of the filing of this tragic complaint against him,” attorneys Tina Glandian and Patricia Brown Holmes said in a statement.
SUMMARY AND COMMENTS:
Everyone has a theory as to what really happened behind the scenes in the Jussie Smollett case. MCC believes that Smollett was attempting to hit two (or three) birds with one stone. First, he wanted to gain world-wide recognition for being a victim so he could negotiate a better contract with folks in Hollywierd.
Second, Smollett was probably attempting to help his close friend Kamala Harris in her bid to become President of the United States. Kamala first attempted to roll out an anti-lynching Bill in the Senate and was preparing to roll out her slavery-reparations program. What better way to help Kamala role out her “get-me-elected” issues, than to have nasty examples of slave-like treatment on the mean streets of Chicago.
Right now Trump is being blamed for virtually everything possible. They say he has created a toxic atmosphere. MCC believes the news media has created the toxic atmosphere by perpetuating one lie after another. Let’s not forget the “hands up don’t shoot” lie from Ferguson, Missouri and the Duke Lacrosse case. The biggie of course was the Russian hoax that went on 2.5 years and cost America nearly $30,000,000.
The erosion of faith in a judicial system is a very dangerous thing. Smollett is just like an admiral or general in the military – the system has proven he is unquestionably above-the-law. In the civilian world, big money starts moving around. Favors are offered and accepted.
The military doesn’t need to pay anyone off, the stars on your collar is all you need to get out of legal jeopardy. But, make no mistake, just like Jussie Smollett, the admirals and generals in the American military are, without question, above the law as well.
In Smollett’s case, an investigation was conducted and charges were filed. In the military, the admirals and generals are rarely investigated and never charged. If there is an investigation (in the military), it’s a method the military uses to find the evidence against the flag-ranking officer so they can destroy it, suppress it, ignore it or downplay its importance.
The first maneuver by the “swamp” was to get the Smollett case transferred to the FBI. This was an attempt to gain federal jurisdiction so the FBI could be used and manipulated to find a way to toss the case. Because things were moving quickly, the Illinois State’s Attorney Kim Foxx had do do something to make sure the facts never entered a courtroom.
When a flag-ranking officer is caught violating the law, the military usually drags things out for a year or so. But, if there is some high-profile issues that leaks into the news media, military authorities will drag it out as long as possible until everyone forgets what happened. Then, when things are quiet, the military secretly slips the admiral or general out the back door into retirement.
When Smollett’s transfer to the FBI didn’t workout as planned, the movers and shakers had no alternative but to bundle up millions of dollars and get it to the right people to make it all go away. State’s Attorney Kim Foxx was secretly communicating with Michele Obama’s former Chief of Staff Tina Chen who wanted Chicago PD to turn the investigation over to the FBI.
For some inexplicable reason, Foxx suddenly dropped the charges in return for forfeiting the $10.000 bond. Foxx said, “I feel in this case justice was appropriate…” We say, what’s the point of even having a Grand Jury or a court system in general? When you have what appeared to be overwhelming evidence, anyone, rich or poor needs to be tried by a jury of their peers and let the chips fall where they may.
The military does it a little bit differently. Drag out the issue, bully and intimidate witnesses, burn documents, investigate only to find and destroy damning evidence, then when no one is looking, place the admiral or general on separation leave slipping him/her out the back door smoothly into retirement.
WARNING: More people are beginning to discover there is no reason to believe the integrity of the civilian or military judicial system. America is entering a dangerous place when the civilian judicial system begins to mimic the military judicial system. Be afraid, be very afraid.
