The Chicago system should 'throw the book' at actor Jussie Smollett, according to the TheIPA's GideonCRozner.

The Chicago system should "throw the book" at actor Jussie Smollett, according to the Institute of Public Affairs' Gideon Rozner. Mr Smollett has been charged for a six-count felony indictment accusing him of staging a phoney hate crime.

The actor claimed he was walking home in January 2019 when masked men approached him, made racist and homophobic remarks, beat him and looped a noose around his neck before fleeing. He also claimed one of the assailants told him he was in "MAGA country" - a reference to Donald Trump's campaign slogan "Make America Great Again". Mr Rozner told Sky News Smollett's conduct is "deeply hypocritical".

Rudd's Australia 2020 Summit was full of 'rent seekers' | Sky News AustraliaThe Australian’s Judith Sloan said the Australia 2020 summit, which was headed up by Kevin Rudd when he was prime minister in 2008, was a talk-fest full of 'what we would call 'rent seekers’”. \n\nThe 2020 Summit invited delegates to discuss ideas and proposals of issues that could affect the future of the nation. \n\nMs Sloan said those who were present at the summit attempted to “push their pet projects” which were to be “funded by the taxpayer”. \n\nShe said it's telling that few of the ideas were subsequently adopted by the private sector. \n\n Sludith, always so cheery. As opposed to conservative prime ministers, Labor PMs bring the country together...conservatives live for nothing else but to wreck and divide As a rule in like I avoid anything Mr KevinRudd was involved with. It was either an immediate disaster, a pending disaster or just loopy. All with massive cost overruns. I still get shudders at his interviews. Self seeded questions and then his numbers replies.

'Hard to fathom' child marriages are on the rise in Australia | Sky News AustraliaSky News host Rita Panahi says “it’s hard to fathom” that while Australian women “enjoy unprecedented prosperity, opportunity and equality, there exists a subjugated subclass who are forced into taking part in devastating cultural practices”. \n\nData released in the past week revealed a sharp increase in the number of forced and child marriages in Australia. \n\nMs Panahi said terms like forced and child marriage did not reveal “the full horror inflicted on victims who are often subjected to terrible abuse”. \n\n“Cultures where women are considered second-class citizens should not be allowed to implement their misogynistic practices in Australia,” she said. \n\n“We cannot allow concerns about political correctness or cultural sensitivities to cloud our judgment. \n\n“Forced marriages are the start of long-term abuse, with girls and women forced into a life of submission and humiliation.” \n\nImage: Getty RitaPanahi Is it hard to fathom with the dogma of ‘multiculturalism’ at all costs?
