    Just another day in the radical transformation of America. Leftist billionaire George Soros is injecting big money into a San Diego district attorney race as part of his larger effort to install extremist prosecutors across America who will refuse to enforce inconvenient laws that liberals and progressives don’t like. Soros, who turns 88 in August, has been underwriting district attorney races across America in an effort to dismantle the criminal justice system, empty the prisons, and sabotage the enforcement of immigration laws. Soros supports state and local efforts to resist U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) and wants to cripple...

    Back around Thanksgiving time, we looked at some groundbreaking reporting from the Washington Free Beacon where they exposed some less than media-neutral activities by one member of the press. Janell Ross, a political reporter for the Washington Post, was found to have participated in a highly secretive, big dollar fundraising and strategy conference for the Democrats. To be clear, Ross was not there reporting on the conference as part of her job. She wrote no articles about it and the WaPo said they didn’t even know that she had gone. She was a participant in the event, even sitting in...

    Even as Democrats publicly and loudly decry corporatist political “dark money,” billionaire Democrats and other donors funnel hundreds of millions to radical and violent causes.   Barely a week had passed after Donald Trump’s historic upset in the November 8 presidential election, but some of the world’s richest individuals were already launching a counteroffensive. George Soros and his fellow deep-pocket funders of the Democratic Party and left-wing causes gathered with a lineup of party activists and luminaries from Hollywood, K Street, and Wall Street for a three-day “investment conference” (November 15-17) at the luxurious Mandarin Oriental Hotel in Washington, D.C....

    ALBANY – District Attorney David Soares launched a three-pronged juvenile justice reform initiative Tuesday to allow non-violent felony defendants between the ages of 16 and 24 to resolve their cases without a criminal record or any time behind bars. "What would a reformed criminal justice system look like ... if we came together and really imagined it?" Soares asked at a news conference in the jury room of the Albany County Judicial Center. "These projects, if applied and engaged in at the same time, we believe will lead to tremendous criminal justice reforms." The initiative — which began as a...

Williams earns $175,000 a year as district attorney but claims he ran into financial trouble after a divorce and by trying to foot the bill for his daughters' tuition for private school, CBS News reported Tuesday. Investigators began looking into...

    Orleans Parish District Attorney Leon Cannizzaro's Office has refused to prosecute a felony hate crime against a man whose arrest documents accuse him of shouting racist and sexist slurs at police officers during his arrest for vandalizing a hotel window. Assistant District Attorney Christopher Bowman, a spokesman for Cannizzaro's office, said Monday (Oct. 24) the police officers Raul Delatoba cursed at were not victims of the crime that prompted his arrest initially. Rather, the "disparaging remarks" to officers were made during or after he was apprehended. The office officially refused the charges about two weeks ago. Delatoba, 34, was arrested...

    McLennan County District Attorney Abel Reyna is asking to postpone a Feb. 29 trial setting in the first Twin Peaks shootout case, saying that analysis of some evidence likely won’t be completed for a year. In a 19-page motion for continuance filed late Tuesday afternoon, Reyna asked 54th State District Judge Matt Johnson to postpone the engaging in organized criminal activity trial of Matthew Alan Clendennen, 30, a member of the Scimitars motorcycle group from Hewitt. Clendennen was arrested the day of the shootout that left nine people dead and at least 20 others wounded. "As our Legislature has mandated,...

    Chisholm is guilty of malfeasance, neglect of duty and official misconduct, a group of county taxpayers on Thursday filed a petition asking Gov. Scott Walker to begin the process of removing the DA from office. Interestingly, the citizens are urging the Republican governor to employ a rarely used statute to dispose of the same Democratic district attorney who launched at least two secret and politically driven John Doe investigations into Walker. “Our law in Wisconsin allows you to remove John Chisholm for cause. Cause includes malfeasance in office, neglect of duty or official misconduct. We have provided a dozen charges...

    Pennsylvania's top prosecutor has taken on the new role of criminal defendant. Attorney General Kathleen Kane was arraigned Saturday afternoon in suburban Philadelphia on charges including a felony count of perjury. She did not enter a plea during the brief proceedings via closed-circuit television and did not speak other than to respond to the judge yes or no. Magisterial District Judge Cathleen Kelly Rebar set a preliminary hearing for Aug. 24 and set bail for $10,000 unsecured bond. Kane is accused of leaking secret grand jury information through an operative to a newspaper reporter as payback for a former state...

    Yesterday, Rick Perry was indicted on charges of abuse of official capacity and coercion of a public servant – felonies that could potentially result in a life sentence – after following through on his promise to veto state prosecutors investigating public corruption. The left-leaning advocacy group, Texans for Public Justice, has largely pushed the issue, which stems from Perry threatening to cut $7.5 million over two years from the public integrity unit in order to pressure Rosemary Lehmberg, the Travis County District Attorney whose office oversaw that unit, to resign after she was convicted of driving under the influence. While...

    An improvised explosive device blew out windows and ignited a small fire at the Jackson County prosecutor's office in Medford, Ore., Wednesday, but authorities said the damage could have been far worse had it ignited a large propane tank at the scene. No injuries were reported as a result of the blast, which occurred at about 4:30 a.m. Local and state police and the FBI and ATF are currently investigating. Law enforcement sources familiar with the case said there was no immediate claim of responsibility and as of yet, there are no suspects, but they are attempting to determine if...

    (CBS News) An ingredient used in artificial butter flavoring for popcorn may worsen the effects of an abnormal brain protein that's been linked to Alzheimer's disease. A new study in Chemical Research in Toxicology examined diacetyl (DA), an ingredient used to produce the buttery flavor and smell in microwave popcorn, margarine, candy, baked goods, and even pet food. It is also created naturally in fermented drinks like beer, and gives some chardonnay wines its buttery taste, according to the study. Scientists at the University of Minnesota in Minneapolis conducted an analysis of DA, a chemical which previously has been linked...

    It's the biggest question hanging over Gov. Scott Walker's recall election: Will Milwaukee County District Attorney John Chisholm file additional criminal charges as part of his John Doe probe before the June 5 election? For nearly two years, Chisholm's office has been looking into various activities in Milwaukee County during Walker's time as county executive. So far, prosecutors have brought charges against three ex-Walker aides, one appointee and a major campaign contributor. Chisholm has sent strong signals that additional charges are in the offing. Walker - who has set up a legal defense fund to pay his two lawyers -...

    It's official. Death is no longer a possible fate for three of four defendants in the January 20007 torture slayings of a Knox County couple. Assistant District Attorney General Leland Price has filed notice of an intention to seek the death penalty as punishment in the deaths of Channon Christian, 21, and boyfriend Christopher Newsom, 23, only against alleged ringleader Lemaricus Davidson. Price this month notified attorneys for Davidson's brother, Letalvis Cobbins, and Cobbins' friend, George Thomas, that he will push for a fate in their cases no more than life without possibility of parole. Because Cobbins' girlfriend, Vanessa Coleman,...
