(AP Photo/Charles Rex Arbogast) Frustration among employees of Cook County State’s Attorney Kim Foxx over the high crime rate and lack of enforcement has led to a mass exodus that threatens the stability of her office.
The number of resignations has been unprecedented. At first, Foxx tried to pin the exodus on the pandemic. But when other local prosecutors in neighboring counties didn’t experience anything like the wave of resignations seen in Cook County, Foxx’s mismanagement was laid bare for all to see.
“Foxx’s implemented policies that have made Chicago less safe, that have made people feel unsafe and emboldened criminals, and created this new level of in seeing brazenness among criminals that was unimaginable prior to her … tenure,” former Cook County Assistant State’s Attorney Dan Kirk told Fox News. “But I also think that her term in office of state’s attorney has been an abysmal failure from the perspective of what it’s done to the state attorney’s office in recent years.”
Mr. Kirk is a supporter of Ms. Foxx but is enough of a realist to speak the truth.
“I hear it every day. … I still know of hundreds of people in office, and I only hear one unanimous message from them, which is that morale has never been lower in the office,” the former ASA continued. “If they don’t respect the administration, they don’t believe that the administration puts victims first. They believe that the administration puts politics and PR first above victims.” Two hundred thirty-five prosecutors have resigned since July 2021, the Chicago Tribune reported in July. That number looks likely to have grown significantly since then; Fox News found that three prosecutors resigned on the same day at some point in the last two weeks. “I am not dismissing any of the very real concerns and stressors […]
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!
