Definitely nothing suspicious about this:
Newt: “Look, the #1 problem in almost all these cities is George Soros-elected, leftwing, anti-police, pro-criminal district attorneys who refuse to keep people locked up. Just yesterday, they put someone back on the street who was wanted for two different murders in New York City. You cannot solve this problem–and both Harris and Bidenhave talked very proudly about what they call ‘progressive district attorneys.’ Progressive district attorneys are anti-police, pro-criminal and overwhelmingly elected with George Soros’ money, and they’re a major cause of the violence we’re seeing, because they keep putting the criminals back on the street.”
Deep manly-voiced bossy woman Fox News anchor (off-camera): “I’m not sure we need to bring George Soros into this.”
Newt: “Well he paid for it. Why can’t we discuss the fact that millions of dollars–“
Shrill, smirking, corporate HR Nazi-esque woman: “No he didn’t. I agree with Melissa, George Soros doesn’t need to be a part of this conversation.”
Newt: “….Okay…? So it’s verboten…?”
*long, awkward silence*
*end of segment*
What the hell just happened here? These women just completely shut Newt down after he mentioned George Soros.
At least we now have confirmation that Fox News is compromised.
Newt Gingrich is 100% correct, which is why they had to silence him here.
Just days ago, Newt tweeted this out:
Because he’s funding all of them. And if they don’t immediately silence anyone who mentions his name, they run the risk of losing that funding.
Why is all this rioting and looting happening? Why is Antifa running free in major cities? Why isn’t anybody doing anything about this?
It’s not like we don’t have the ability to get this under control. We’re not like Mexico where our law enforcement simply cannot compete with the criminals, and therefore the criminals run a large part of the country.
Our police are perfectly capable of getting this under control. But they do not. And these criminals run free.
It’s because someone is telling the police to stand down, and someone is letting these criminals out of jail.
Soros has been buying off big city DAs for years now.
This article in the Washington Free Beacon is from November, 2017, and it is entitled “George Soros Continues to Quietly Pile Up Wins in District Attorney Races“. It’s about how Soros bought the Philadelphia DA:
Liberal billionaire George Soros has quietly flooded cash into local district attorney races across numerous states in recent years, notching yet another victory Tuesday in Philadelphia.
Larry Krasner, a progressive defense attorney who has joked that he built a career that made him “completely unelectable,” made his way out of a crowded Democratic field of eight candidates before defeating Republican prosecutor Beth Grossman by more than 40 percentage points in Tuesday’s district attorney election in Philadelphia.
Krasner, who has represented Occupy Philadelphia and Black Lives Matter, and has sued the police department more than 75 times, had a major fundraising advantage that was provided almost exclusively by Soros, who has made it a mission to fund district attorney races throughout the country and has notched victories along the way.
The Soros operation is the same in nearly every city: The financier will establish political action committees, pour money into local races, then turn around and shut them down once the election is over.
On April 28, Soros initially cut a $1,450,000 check to the Philadelphia Justice and Public Safety PAC, a super PAC that was established with the sole intent of backing Krasner. The PAC lists its address as the Perkins Coie law office, a Washington, D.C.-based powerhouse law firm that represents a number of Democratic politicians, committees, and interests. Whitney Tymas, who has been involved with a number of Soros PACs, is the operator of the Philadelphia Justice & Public Safety PAC.
Soros gave $214,000 more to the PAC on May 23, bringing the total amount in support of Krasner to $1.7 million, an unusual high for the average district attorney race. This was the first time a PAC had supported a candidate for district attorney in the city.
City DA races never see this type of money spent. Not even in big cities like Philadelphia.
Soros has been doing this all over the country for years now. This POLITICO article is from August, 2016:
The billionaire financier has channeled more than $3 million into seven local district-attorney campaigns in six states over the past year — a sum that exceeds the total spent on the 2016 presidential campaign by all but a handful of rival super-donors.
His money has supported African-American and Hispanic candidates for these powerful local roles, all of whom ran on platforms sharing major goals of Soros’, like reducing racial disparities in sentencing and directing some drug offenders to diversion programs instead of to trial. It is by far the most tangible action in a progressive push to find, prepare and finance criminal justice reform-oriented candidates for jobs that have been held by longtime incumbents and serve as pipelines to the federal courts — and it has inspired fury among opponents angry about the outside influence in local elections.
Soros has spent on district attorney campaigns in Florida, Illinois, Louisiana, Mississippi, New Mexico and Texas through a network of state-level super PACs and a national “527” unlimited-money group, each named a variation on “Safety and Justice.” (Soros has also funded a federal super PAC with the same name.) Each organization received most of its money directly from Soros, according to public state and federal financial records, though some groups also got donations from nonprofits like the Civic Participation Action Fund, which gave to the Safety and Justice group in Illinois.
After the Louisiana and Mississippi races, Soros next piled money into two of the biggest jurisdictions in the country: Houston’s Harris County (his lone losing effort so far) and Chicago’s Cook County, where he funded one of several groups that helped Kim Foxx defeat incumbent state’s attorney Anita Alvarez in a high-profile primary campaign dominated by the 13-month delay between the police shooting of Laquan McDonald and the indictment of the police officer involved.
As if the “13 month delay” is supposed to be inherently a bad thing? Were they supposed to send the officers to prison for life without a fair trial? Actually, that’s a rhetorical question. The left would probably answer yes.
Kim Foxx, you probably remember, was the Chicago DA who let Jussie Smollett off the hook.
While Soros has spent heavily in 2015 and 2016, a broader national push into local prosecutor campaigns is expected to intensify in the next few years, thanks to longer-term planning and candidate recruitment. A Safety and Justice group has already organized in Ohio, according to campaign finance filings there. But it has not yet disclosed raising or spending any money.
And intensify it has. What you’re seeing now in 2020 is the payoff–this was the end-goal of Soros’ plan to “overhaul” the “justice” systems of big cities in the US.
The St. Louis prosecutor who threw the book at the McCloskeys? Soros-funded:
St. Louis Circuit Attorney Kim Gardner, who was boosted by Soros in her campaign, drew controversy when she announced her office was bringing felony charges against Mark and Patricia McCloskey, the couple who brandished guns outside their home as protesters marched by in June.
Wonder why San Francisco is out of control? Soros-funded DA:
San Francisco District Attorney Chesa Boudin, another beneficiary of Soros-tied contributions, recently defended the movement to defund police. In a discussion with Rep. Ayanna Pressley, D-Mass., earlier in July, Boudin questioned whether money going to police was “the most effective” use of taxpayer dollars.
Soros is behind all of it:
In a Washington Post op-ed he co-wrote with Baltimore DA Marilyn Mosby, [Philadelphia DA Jerry] Krasner threatened to have federal officers arrested and charged if they overstep their authority in his jurisdiction, after officers in Portland were accused of using excessive force.
“Should Trump send federal agents who engage in the same illegal vigilante activities, unlawfully assaulting and kidnapping people, they will face criminal charges from our offices,” Krasner and Mosby said.
In Contra Costa County, Calif., District Attorney Diana Becton – also backed by Soros – changed how her office handles police shooting cases, removing deputy district attorney Barry Grove from his role as the main prosecutor in such cases, switching to a team approach, according to the Mercury News.
Becton also announced earlier this month that she was filing hate crime charges against Nichole Anderson and David Nelson, White people who were allegedly caught painting over a Black Lives Matter mural.
This is the end-result of Soros’ efforts. It goes on and on.
US Attorney General William Barr raised the alarm on Soros-funded DAs back in December of last year:
“There’s this recent development [where] George Soros has been coming in, in largely Democratic primaries where there has not been much voter turnout and putting in a lot of money to elect people who are not very supportive of law enforcement and don’t view the office as bringing to trial and prosecuting criminals but pursuing other social agendas,” Barr told Martha MacCallum. “They have started to win in a number of cities and they have, in my view, not given the proper support to the police.”
Last month, two Virginia prosecutorial candidates ousted incumbents in local Democratic primaries — after Soros’ Justice and Public Safety PAC poured nearly a million dollars into their campaigns.
He backed Parisa Dehghani-Tafti to beat Arlington County Commonwealth’s Attorney Theo Stamos, and supported former Justice Department employee Steve Descano in his race against Fairfax County Commonwealth’s Attorney Raymond Morrogh. Campaign finance reports show Dehghani-Tafti received $583,000 and Descano received $392,000 just from that PAC. Meanwhile, Stamos and Morrogh raised $162,000 and $242,000, respectively, for their entire campaigns.
The money gave Tafti and Descano a significant financial advantage over the incumbents, despite their lack of experience. The Washington Post reported that while the two challengers have never prosecuted a case in a state court, they beat candidates with more than 60 years of experience between them.
It’s all starting to make sense now.
Most normal Americans have got to be wondering right now, “Man, how and why did things suddenly get so bad in so many of these major cities?”
Soros is the why and the how.
But apparently you’re not allowed to mention that on Fox News, which is funny because most of the articles I cited in this post were from Fox News’ website.
