On Tuesday, progressive Los Angeles District Attorney George Gascon moved to disband the Parole Division Bureau of Prosecution Support Operations, whose job it is to notify victims of crime when a parole hearing is scheduled for the perpetrator.
The George Soros-backed DA told members of the group that they will continue working through October, but that starting in November, there will not be “any forthcoming assignments.” As Los Angeles Magazine reports , Gascon said he felt it was “not appropriate” for prosecutors to inform victims and their families about their assailants’ parole hearings.
His office argued that the task is better handled by the California Department of Corrections and Rehabilitation (CDCR).
“After consulting with victim experts, we do not believe this is a trauma-informed approach,” Gascon’s team told LA Mag. “Contacting victims and their next of kin can be very triggering, especially if they do not welcome the intrusion.”
“We consulted with the CDCR and they have advised and confirmed that it is their responsibility to contact victims who have registered for notifications and provide information and support to those victims.” LA County Deputy DA Ryan Erlich took to Twitter to share his displeasure.
Gascon “has done a bunch of terrible things since Dec. 2020,” he wrote. “But turning his back on the families of victims of violent crime is beyond callous.”
“If he had EVER tried a homicide, he would know that we have a moral duty to, at least, support those folks at parole hearings.”
The move comes just over a year after Gascon nixed a long-standing policy allowing prosecutors from the DA’s office to attend parole hearings to argue against the early release of offenders.Gascon’s tenure as DA has been polarizing, with many calling out his soft-on-crime approach. Earlier this month, a campaign seeking to recall Gascon reached over 700,000 signatures, enough to […]
Will America-First News Outlets Make it to 2023?
Things are looking grim for conservative and populist news sites.
There’s something happening behind the scenes at several popular conservative news outlets. 2021 was bad, but 2022 is proving to be disastrous for news sites that aren’t “playing ball” with the corporate media narrative. It’s being said that advertisers are cracking down, forcing some of the biggest ad networks like Google and Yahoo to pull their inventory from conservative outlets. This has had two major effects. First, it has cooled most conservative outlets from discussing “taboo” topics like Pandemic Panic Theater, voter fraud, or The Great Reset. Second, it has isolated those ad networks that aren’t playing ball.
Certain topics are anathema for most ad networks. Speaking out against vaccines or vaccine mandates is a certain path to being demonetized. Highlighting voter fraud in the 2020 and future elections is another instant advertising death penalty. Throw in truthful stories about climate change hysteria, Critical Race Theory, and the border crisis and it’s easy to understand how difficult it is for America-First news outlets to spread the facts, share conservative opinions, and still pay the bills.
Without naming names, I have been told of several news outlets who have been forced to either consolidate with larger organizations or who have backed down on covering certain topics out of fear of being “canceled” by the ad networks. I get it. This is a business for many of us and it’s not very profitable. Those of us who do this for a living are often barely squeaking by, so loss of additional revenue can often mean being forced to make cuts. That means not being able to cover the topics properly. Its a Catch-22: Tell the truth and lose the money necessary to keep telling the truth, or avoid the truth and make enough money to survive. Those who have chosen survival simply aren’t able to spread the truth properly.
We will never avoid the truth. The Lord will provide if it is His will. Our job is simply to share the facts, spread the Gospel, and educate as many Americans as possible while exposing the forces of evil.
To those who have the means, we ask that you please donate. We have options available now, but there is no telling when those options will cancel us. We have our GivingFuel page. There have been many who have been canceled by PayPal, but for now it’s still an option. Your generosity is what keeps these sites running and allows us to get the truth to the masses. We’ve had great success in growing but we know we can do more with your assistance.
Thank you, and God Bless!
