In 2018, when even conservatives bought into the de-incarceration agenda of “criminal justice reform,” I lamented to crime expert Heather Mac Donald in a conversation, “What are we going to do about the tsunami of jailbreak bills enjoying bipartisan support?” “It’s going to have to get worse before it gets better,” she replied. “The country has forgotten what it was like before the Giuliani days of tough-on-crime policies, and they will need a reminder.” Well, it appears that the people have now gotten a stark reminder of what ubiquitous crime looks like. The question is whether Republican politicians have finally learned their lesson.
After San Francisco voters tossed out pro-criminal Soros DA Chesa Boudin in a stunning recall election last month, it appears that Los Angeles voters are ready for a repeat performance against DA George Gascón. After turning San Francisco into the needle and homeless capital of the country during his stint as DA last decade, Gascon took his criminal road show down south to L.A. in 2020 and promised “the lowest level of intervention for the criminal justice system” if elected. Well, he did not disappoint. He did to L.A. what Boudin did to San Francisco, as crime skyrocketed commensurate with this criminal release policies. Now he appears to be suffering the same fate as his San Franciscan comrade.
On Monday, the organizers of the recall campaign against Gascon turned in to the Los Angeles Registrar-Recorder/County Clerk’s office 715,833 signatures for the recall petition. In order to trigger a recall election, 566,857 valid signatures are required, so the campaign looks like it was a smashing success. The clerk’s office has until August 17 to certify the petitions, and then the recall election will likely be held concurrent with the general election in November.

They’re Trying to Shut Us Down
Over the last several months, I’ve lost count of how many times the powers-that-be have tried to shut us down. They’ve sent hackers at us, forcing us to take extreme measures on web security. They sent attorneys after us, but thankfully we’re not easily intimidated by baseless accusations or threats. They’ve even gone so far as to make physical threats. Those can actually be a bit worrisome but Remington has me covered.
For us to continue to deliver the truth that Americans need to read and hear, we ask you, our amazing audience, for financial assistance. We have a Giving Fuel page to help us pay the bills. It’s brand new so don’t be discouraged by the lack of donations there. It’s a funny reality that the fewer the donations that have been made, the less likely people are willing to donate to it. One would think this is counterintuitive, but sometimes people are skeptical because they think that perhaps there’s a reason others haven’t been donating. In our situation, we’re just getting started so please don’t be shy if you have the means to help.
Thank you and God bless!
