    The Illinois Supreme Court rejected former "Empire" star Jussie Smollett's request to throw out charges that accuse him of staging a racist, homophobic attack in Chicago. The ruling came Friday, along with the court's decision rejecting the actor's effort to remove the special prosecutor in the case. Smollett’s lawyers argued in an emergency petition that Cook County Circuit Judge Michael Toomin overstepped his authority and misinterpreted the law when he ordered the appointment of a special prosecutor. The court did not explain its decision to reject the arguments by Smollett’s lawyers. Smollett. 37, was initially accused by Cook County prosecutors...

    Why are wealthy left-wing donors across the country, the abortion industry, and national gun-control groups more interested in your local school board and city council races than most of the people who live in your own town? Because they’re funding efforts to ensure their far-left agenda pervades our entire society – from getting their abortion curricula into our schools to changing our election laws – and they want to make sure that no city, no town is left to stand against them. National left-wing organizations are collecting and funneling hundreds of millions of dollars to flip local city councils, school...

    Newly elected San Francisco District Attorney Chesa Boudin grabbed headlines earlier this week after saying he would not prosecute “quality-of-life” crimes including public urination -- but that’s only part of what’s on the agenda for the 39-year-old former public defender with a past that's radical even by California standards.

    Chesa Boudin will serve as San Francisco's next district attorney, the San Francisco Chronicle reported Saturday. Boudin, the most progressive candidate on the ballot, won a tight race against interim district attorney Suzy Loftus. Boudin held 85,950 votes as of Saturday afternoon, with about 1,200 ballots left to count, the Chronicle said. Loftus had 83,511 votes. The 39-year-old won the seat following four days of ballot counting in the city's first open election for district attorney in over a century following sitting District Attorney George Gascon's departure to run for district attorney in Los Angeles.

    If you want to know how bad San Francisco's gotten -- and how much worse still it could get, get a load of this tweet, from Chesa Boudin, adopted son of Bill Ayers and Bernardine Dohrn: Our lead is bigger than it has ever been, and we expect it to grow over the coming days. Our focus right now is on ensuring every vote is counted. We are so humbled by the number of people continuing to believe in fundamental change. Our movement is strong. — Chesa Boudin 博徹思 (@chesaboudin) November 8, 2019   According to the San Francisco Chronicle,...

    Socialist Bernie Sanders just endorsed the bleeding-heart candidate for San Francisco District Attorney who makes President Obama's Attorney General, Eric Holder, look like Sheriff Joe Arpaio. Meet Chesa Boudin. He's the Bay Area public defender and former shill/translator for the late Venezuelan dictator Hugo Chavez who plans to turn the craphole of San Francisco into an even bigger sanctuary for the homeless, drug abusers, illegal immigrants, gangsters, vandals, thieves, recidivist criminals and cop-haters than it is already. Boudin leads a spooky field of left-lefter-leftists running for DA on the Nov. 5 ballot. The cornerstone of Boudin's campaign is sabotaging immigration...

    At about 1 a.m. on July 18th, 2018, in Alquippa, Pennsylvania Brionna Hicks stepped outside on the porch of her home to smoke a cigarette. Her mother was upstairs with three children. Her brother, Anthony Farley, lived in the other half of the duplex. Two men, wearing shirts with DEA printed on them, ran up to the porch, yelling DEA! and DEA survellance! They tried to handcuff Brionna. She fought them and started screaming.

    New York billionaire George Soros is leading a campaign to reshape the nation’s criminal justice system -- and targeting with cash four of the 56 district attorney positions in California up for grabs June 5. In fact, he and other wealthy liberal donors are pouring millions of dollars and liberal groups are offering support to would-be prosecutors who favor lower incarceration rates, crackdowns on police misconduct and changes in a bail system that they argue discriminates against the poor, the Los Angeles Times reported. "These people who want to create their own social policy are not worthy of the office,"...

    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...

    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...
