San Francisco’s new district attorney is cleaning house and just fired 15 woke staffers she inherited from her recalled predecessor. The Friday firings by Brooke Jenkins come almost two weeks after she was appointed district attorney by Mayor London Breed after the people booted the radical Chesa Boudin.
Jenkins said: “I promised the public that I would restore accountability and consequences to the criminal justice system while advancing smart reforms responsibly.
“I have full faith and confidence that these women will promote and protect public safety while delivering justice in all of its various forms,” she said of her new staff.

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!
