“We want to make it as easy as possible for him…”



“(Chicago Police Spokesman) Guglielmi told ABC News police do not know where Smollett is, and “his attorneys have not shared where he is at this point.”

“I know this can be difficult emotionally, and we hope he doesn’t do anything terrible. We want to make this as diplomatic as possible. In the end, this is only a class 4 felony. He will get through this and we want to make it as easy as possible for him to do it. But again, it is about accountability,” Guglielmi told ABC News.”

You ‘spose the FBI would have handled it this way, non-violent related charge or not? Somebody check with Roger Stone.

Jussie Smollett attack: Smollett charged with disorderly conduct for filing false police report, prosecutors say

“Empire” actor Jussie Smollett has been charged with one count of felony disorderly conduct for filing a false police report, the Cook County State’s Attorney’s Office said Wednesday evening.

Smollett is due in court in Chicago at 1:30 p.m. Thursday. Chicago police spokesman Anthony Guglielmi said CPD detectives will make contact with Smollett’s legal team to “negotiate a reasonable surrender for his arrest.”

Smollett is not in custody at this time. Guglielmi told ABC News police are not actively looking for the actor because “this is not a violent crime,” but said “the longer this goes, the more we have to do what we have to do.”

Guglielmi told ABC News police do not know where Smollett is, and “his attorneys have not shared where he is at this point.”

“I know this can be difficult emotionally, and we hope he doesn’t do anything terrible. We want to make this as diplomatic as possible. In the end, this is only a class 4 felony. He will get through this and we want to make it as easy as possible for him to do it. But again, it is about accountability,” Guglielmi told ABC News.

Twentieth Century Fox Television and Fox Entertainment said they have no comment at this time.

Guglielmi said CPD detectives presented evidence before a Cook County grand jury Wednesday.

Smollett’s attorneys, Todd Pugh and Victor Henderson, released a statement, saying, “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 these circumstances, we intend to conduct a thorough investigation and to mount an aggressive defense.”

Interesting, too, is the report on Mr. Smollett’s plight in Thursday’s Wall Street Journal. In a 300 word story, the Journal outlines the episode in some detail, omitting, however, a point that we thought rather pertinent to the story…the “attackers shouting “…this is MAGA country…!”       DLH

Trumps Venezuela speech and about suits to stop border enforcement

DLH in our latest executive conference call, he on an annual inspection tour of our Southern bureaus, asked if I had tuned in to President Trump’s Miami speech focused on Venezuela.  I had not but fortunately Gary Bauer excerpted it yesterday and is set forth below. It was another excellent speech from the President.

Trump vs. Socialism

Speaking in Miami, Florida, yesterday, President Trump delivered a blistering speech against the tyrannical regime in Venezuela.  Trump called on military leaders there to side with the Venezuelan people and President Juan Guaido and to reject Cuban puppet Nicolas Maduro.
Trump also denounced socialism in Venezuela as well as those demanding socialism in the United States.  Here are some excerpts of his remarks.
“Not long ago, Venezuela was the wealthiest nation, by far, in South America.  But years of socialist rule have brought this once-thriving nation to the brink of ruin. . .
“In other words, the socialists have done in Venezuela all of the same things that socialists, communists, totalitarians have done everywhere that they’ve had a chance to rule.  The results have been catastrophic.
“Almost 90 percent of Venezuelans now live in poverty. . . Crippling shortages of food and medicine plague the country.  Socialism has so completely ravaged this great country that even the world’s largest reserves of oil are no longer enough to keep the lights on. . .
“The twilight hour of socialism has arrived in our hemisphere and, frankly, in many, many places around the world.  The days of socialism and communism are numbered not only in Venezuela, but in Nicaragua and in Cuba as well.
“Socialism promises prosperity, but it delivers poverty.  Socialism promises unity, but it delivers hatred and it delivers division.  Socialism promises a better future, but it always returns to the darkest chapters of the past. . .
“Socialism is a sad and discredited ideology rooted in the total ignorance of history and human nature, which is why socialism, eventually, must always give rise to tyranny, which it does.  Socialists profess a love of diversity, but they always insist on absolute conformity. . .
“And to those who would try to impose socialism on the United States, we again deliver a very simple message: America will never be a socialist country.  We are born free and we will stay free, now and forever.”

States Sue For Open Borders

Now riffing off of more of Bauer ‘s work where he wrote about law suits by Blue states being filed to stop Trump’s executive orders on border enforcement.  Now  the usual suspects were all a twitter when Arizona, an individual state tried to enforce its border in the face of the Obama administrations failure to do so.  Democrats sued to stop Arizona and the SCOTUS ruled that border enforcement was exclusively a federal responsibility. So now the same ilk are saying Trump can’t enforce the border using established federal laws.

As Bauer wrote:  Now that we finally have an administration willing to enforce our immigration laws, left-wing states are suing to ensure that the borders remain open.

No we are not a fan of such special tax breaks, nor of Amazon, nor of New York but this Branco cartoon does establish the short-on-math skills of Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez and where she is coming from.  It delightfully introduces us to an appropriate agnomen/sobriquet for the privileged congresswoman from the Bronx Yorktown.



Along with corruptions like Occasional Cortex and  “Long on name short on brain cells”   Che-O-C  is a new favorite of ours.

Of course people who ask how she intends to pay for it are shamed as greedy rich and told to shut up

The ignorant yawn of millennials is how and why she is the new Democrat poster child

By the way, word is she was known as Sandy in high school.  Is that cultural appropriation?  And about her despising capitalism . . .

Imagine the late night comic’s Jussie jokes

Can hardly wait to see Jimmy Kimmel, Jimmy Fallon, and Stephen Colbert monologues as they poke fun at the ‘Tawana’ Smollett story.

SNL’s skit for this Saturday:

1st’ Attacker’: “Hand me the excrement”

2nd “Attacker”: “I don’t have it…I thought you brought it”

1st “Attacker”: “Dammit! Who’s gonna believe this is a real attack on a gay black if there’s no excrement?”

2nd “Attacker”: “Don’t yell at me. You forgot to wear your MAGA hat”

Jussie: “C’mon you guys. Get this over with…it’s freezing out here”

Sailor in Famous ‘Kiss’ Photo Dies; Sex Assault Charges Dropped

Sailor in Famous ‘Kiss’ Photo Dies; Sex Assault Charges Dropped

Could possibly be fake news

Definitely a display of toxic masculinity – look at those aghast

WSJ, 2/19/19. “The sailor shown kissing a woman in Times Square celebrating the end of World War II died Sunday. George Mendonsa was 95 years old.

“Mendonsa was shown in the famous photo kissing Greta Zimmer Friedman, a dental assistant in a nurse’s uniform on Aug. 14, 1945, known as V-J Day. Mr. Mendonsa planted a kiss on Ms. Friedman, whom he had never met, as people spilled into the New York City streets to celebrate the war’s end.

“The photo… was first published in Life magazine and is called “V-J Day in Times Square”.

Ms. Friedman died in 2016 at age 92.”

(Veritaspac’s New York Bureau has learned of an unconfirmed report that sex assault charges for unwanted advances in the incident, were filed in 2018 against Mendonsa by the “Me-Too” movement; they have now been dropped.)

Rant that shook the world — Tea Party anniversary

We’ve been ranting pretty much ever sense.  The first TEA Party revolts were held February 29th 2009. Veritas PAC was established as a statewide political action committee in July of 2010 and VeritasPAC.com in December of 2011. The impetus was the frustration shared and as chronicled in this communication from Tea Party Patriots.

Local resident Tom Nelson called soon after Santelli’s rant with the intent to be part of the revolt, alone or with somebody. A demonstration was organized, one of several over a few years and President Donald Trump is one of the results. Posted is a picture of a local April 2010 TEA party protest.  Somewhere we have some pictures of the first local event from 2009.  DLH experienced a number of larger TEA Party protests in his travels.  It is part of our bloodline.

From Tea Party Patriots

“This is America! How many of you people want to pay for your neighbor’s mortgage that has an extra bathroom and can’t pay their bills? Raise their hand!”

“You know, Cuba used to have mansions and a relatively decent economy. They moved from the individual to the collective. Now, they’re driving ’54 Chevys, maybe the last great car to come out of Detroit.”

“We’re thinking of having a Chicago Tea Party in July. All you capitalists that want to show up to Lake Michigan, I’m gonna start organizing.”

Does that sound familiar?

Tomorrow, February 19, 2009 is the 10th anniversary of Rick Santelli’s famous rant that sparked a movement that changed the course of America.

Our story – the tea party movement’s story – begins with frustration over the bank bailouts in 2008. The outrage boiled over as President Obama and the Democrat-controlled Congress quickly rammed their “stimulus” bill through both chambers, despite a massive surge of opposition from the American public.

Americans knew it was a giant slush fund for leftist groups and Democrat cronies of more than $787 billion (we now know the final number is $831 billion spent), and that we were already trillions of dollars in debt. We knew that adding another trillion dollars to the debt for nothing was going to further enslave future generations – our kids and grandkids! The stimulus betrayed so many of the values our nation was founded on – fiscal responsibility, limited government, accountability to the people, free markets, and individual rights.

Rick Santelli publicly verbalized what we were all thinking and saying to our friends and families at the time. We are so grateful to Rick Santelli for his fearless and bold statement that attacked the stimulus, defended individualism and free markets, and sparked a movement of patriotic, Constitution-loving Americans to put pressure on their elected officials to return to the principles that made our country great. And, after his rant, there were conservatives all over Twitter, talking to each other, agreeing that a “tea party” sounded exactly right. The next day, 22 conservatives got on a conference call to organize the first round of tea parties that were then held all over the country on February 27, 2009.   . . .

Damn right its a national emergency

Damn right it’s a national emergency

We are using the wrong basis for opposing the invasion by the citizens of other countries!

• We are told by gullible liberals that the overwhelming majority of these beleaguered refugees are “hard-working, steeped in family values, and will make America’s country economically stronger.

• We are told that these pitiful hordes are fleeing terrible conditions, oppressive governments, but, in fact as a population commit far fewer crimes than our own citizenry

• Is it not fair to ask then,’how did they tolerate such an oppressive government? And as major contributors to a country’s economy through their hard work, did their home country become so impoverished? And even if the “crime rate’ among these ‘freedom seekers” is lower, why do we need to bring into the country, illegally, any more crime at all?

• And, where has the substantial relief aid and economic assistance the US has provided to their countries to improve conditions for their people and help them become major players on the world stage gone? If they tolerated, and in various cases, elected corrupt governments, is it unfair to suggest they might tolerate and elect the same kind of leaders here, especially given an apparent disregard for our nation’s laws anyway?

• This nation is in Fact Being Literally Flooded by People Entering the Country Illegally Who Have No Intention Or Interest In Assimilating With Our National Culture, Values, Legal Structure and Political Heritage…!

• THE NATION’S Resources are Being Stretched beyond Its Limits; Schools are Inundated With Students Who Do Not Speak The Language ; They bring disease from their countries which were long eradicated here. As More and More People Illegally Enter The Country They Demand The Nation’s benefits, Including the Right To Vote (once Vested Exclusively in Earned Citizenship), welfare payments, sanctuary from punishment for violating US laws, and the “right” to bring in to America Various Members of their Extended Family!

• Ironically, many of the people Illegally Entering the Country, ostensibly to “escape from the awful conditions” imposed on them by corrupt governments and a society so diminished by illegality and oppressive governance. Yet, They bring their home country’s flag, and quite apparently the culture and ideology which produced the very conditions they claim to be escaping from!

In their own words they define the condition of their home country as a ‘s—hole’! But, they get here and now… already in sufficient numbers and growing…with the full support of our liberal ‘establishment’ and a corrupted media… demand that American citizens conform to their interests.

That FRIENDS, IS A ‘national emergency’!

A society, divided by distinctly different values, norms, and culture does not survive as a nation.

The notion that people walking into a country, in defiance of its laws, and refusing to accept that nation’s basic principles, heritage, and values… then expecting, nay, demanding the nation they fled to for “opportunity” adopt the ideology and governance from which they fled, is ludicrous on its face.

By their own words, the very ‘claimed’ injustices and oppression that they use to seek entry, they seek to apply the same values and norms that fostered those injustices to this country!

Just as any invading army would!       DLH

McCabe will just slither away

Victor Davis Hanson…indispensable! Writing at Center for American Greatness —

My only ‘pause’:

“Shame on all these failed conspirators and their abettors, and may these immoral people finally earn a long deserved legal and moral reckoning.”

I don’t believe any of these ‘bad actors’ will ever “earn a long deserved legal and moral reckoning.” In this life anyway. The lot of them will slither away.

Madame Wishes To Delete

Just as Cory Booker, well-known vegan and courageous social justice warrior was readying ‘anti-lynching’ legislation (maybe he could call it, “Jussie’s Law”) in the aftermath of the widely reported ‘racist, homophobic assault by “Trump supporting fanatics”, a flood of media is now reporting that the alleged attack appears to be a “Tawana Brawley” type of hoax.*


Booker and virtually the entire media, entertainment, Democratic Party, ‘anti-Trump establishment’ is undergoing just one more example of its shameless, hate-filled stupidity… duped again by its own “constituency”!

If you are not aware of  the “Jussie Smollet” story and its rapidly collapsing aftermath, you must have been unconscious for the last  couple of weeks.*

To bring you up to date briefly, the Daily Caller story below touches on most of the important details. Suffice to say, what started as a “jussie” (er, “juicy”) story highlighting the malevolence of every Trump  supporter, or MAGA hat wearer, has apparently turned out to be a vastly humiliating example of the ‘Left Establishment’s’ eager gullibility.

Democrat politicians (including most of the Party’s declared presidential candidates), entertainment personalities (like the beloved Stephen Colbert), and the usual ‘Never Trump media’ who rushed to condemn, are now starting to look abjectly foolish once again.


The Self-Proclaimed “Great Legislator, “jus’ Nancy”, Deleted Her Sympathetic Tweet for “Empire” actor , Jussie” Smollet, in Wake of Suspected Fraudulent Claim of Racist, Homophobic Attack

House Speaker Nancy Pelosi deleted her original tweet sympathetic for “Empire” actor and singer Jussie Smollett amid reports that Smollett may have staged the alleged January 29 attack against himself.

Smollett claimed to law enforcement he went to a local Chicago Subway eatery at 2 a.m., and he was physically assaulted by two men in ski masks who poured a bleach-like substance on him and tied a rope around his neck like a noose. (RELATED: Here Are All The Politicians Who Rushed To Judgement On The Smollett ‘Hate Crime’)

Smollett, who is gay and black, also told police his attackers yelled racial and homophobic slurs at him as well as told him, “This is MAGA country.”

Politicians and celebrities alike rallied around Smollett, including Pelosi, who tweeted on January 29, “The racist, homophobic attack on [Smollett] is an affront to our humanity. No one should be attacked for who they are or whom they love.”

However, as the case unfolded over the past two weeks more questions arose as to whether Smollett was telling the complete truth about the January 29 incident.

Others have yet to retract their original statements or delete their original tweets, including California Democratic Sen. Kamala Harris and New Jersey Democratic Sen. Corey Booker. Both are running for the Democratic nomination for president.

Booker was asked about the recent developments in the case and would only say he is waiting for more information before he makes any further statements about the matter. (RELATED: Cory Booker Called Smollett ‘Attack’ A ‘Lynching,’ Now He’s Refusing Comment Amid New Evidence In The Case)

According to ABC News, two Nigerian brothers, initially arrested by Chicago Police in connection to the assault against Smollett were later released after telling law enforcement that Smollett paid them to stage the attack.

One of the brothers is Smollett’s personal trainer, according to a statement to ABC News from Smollett’s attorneys. They had decided to cooperate after investigators revealed that they had evidence the brothers had bought the rope that was put around Smollet’s neck at a local hardware store.

Smollett’s attorneys released a statement denying he staged his own attack, saying in part, “As a victim of a hate crime who has cooperated with the police investigation, Jussie Smollett is angered and devastated by recent reports that the perpetrators are individuals he is familiar with. He has now been further victimized by claims attributed to these alleged perpetrators that Jussie played a role in his own attack. Nothing is further from the truth and anyone claiming otherwise is lying.”

Still more juicy stuff about the latest liberal fraud

BUSTED: Police Sources Say Jussie Smollett Orchestrated His Attack    (excerpt)

Oh, and guess what—those Nigerians bought the rope that was involved in the alleged attack at an ACE Hardware store, though another story is that Smollett himself paid for the rope at a different hardware store. The point is both stories allegedly point to Smollett planning a fake hate crime. Now, Chicago Police sources have told CNN that they feel Smollett orchestrated the attack. The supposed attackers were also allegedly paid over $3,000 each to stage this assault. Oh, and they supposedly held rehearsals for it  (via CBS Chicago) [emphasis mine]:

Its positively luscious

Green new deal to line union pockets at taxpayer expense

  • But then what else is new
  • This is precious! unbelievable!
  • By all means Mitch make them vote

WSJ excerpt, pay wall did not seem to be present

$1,973 LEDs and the Green New Deal
How many union workers does it take to screw in a light bulb?

“The Green New Deal that Democrats unveiled last week has a grand ambition to eliminate fossil fuels in 10 years, retrofit every building in America, and guarantee high-paying jobs in the bargain. If you want to see how that works in the real world, consider the public housing projects near Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez’s New York office.

“The New York City Housing Authority (Nycha) has a more modest goal of a 30% reduction in greenhouse-gas emissions by 2027. As part of its plan, Nycha is switching to LED lighting, which lasts longer than incandescent bulbs and consumes less energy. (snip)

“One recent project focused on 23 housing developments, and changing the light bulbs and fixtures there cost $33.2 million. Supplies account for a fraction of that cost. Under Nycha’s Project Labor Agreement, electricians make $81 in base pay and $54 in fringe per hour, and overtime is usually time and a half. Add administrative and contracting expenses. All in, Nycha paid an average of $1,973 per apartment to install LEDs.

“For Ms. Ocasio-Cortez, sky-high labor costs are part of the plan. Her Green New Deal resolution would create “high-quality union jobs that pay prevailing wages” and reinforce “the right of all workers to organize, unionize, and collectively bargain.”
