Where Are All the Conservative Prosecutors?

AMAC Exclusive – by Clayton Fuller

conservatives

As part of the progressive push to remake America, left-wing activists and ultra-wealthy liberal elites have quietly worked to install radical candidates in local prosecutor offices throughout the country. Under the guise of combatting “systemic racism” and advancing “social justice,” these district attorneys, instead of punishing criminals, have demonized the police, undermined the justice system, and in many cases flat out refused to prosecute violent crime. However, as AMAC Newsline has previously reported, citizens are starting to fight back and remove prosecutors who refuse to enforce the law. But as communities rise up to demand change, many are wondering: where are all the conservative prosecutors?

At the national level, the Department of Justice’s recent crime statistics are a harrowing sign of the results of the left’s aims to change criminal justice. Over the past year, the country saw the largest spike in the murder rate in American history. Violent crime was up 5.6 percent from 2019. Aggravated assaults were up 30 percent. America saw 50 law enforcement officers killed in the first 8 months of 2021, which represented a 51.5 percent increase compared to the same time period in 2020.

Americans have noticed, too. According to a recent Gallup poll, 78 percent of Americans are concerned about an increase in crime. The border situation likely doesn’t help either, as the country faces a 21-year high in illegal border crossings. Aside from the uptick in human trafficking and other crimes, the crossings also drain law enforcement resources that could otherwise be used for things like preventing deadly fentanyl from entering the country. Even with fewer patrols, more fentanyl has been seized at the border in this year alone than the previous three years combined, and communities across the country will likely see more overdoses. 

At the local level the results have been just as bad. Chesa Boudin, who was recently elected as the District Attorney of San Francisco, ran on a campaign to not prosecute “quality of life” crimes like shoplifting. Predictably, shoplifting in San Francisco has exploded, and 17 Walgreens have decided to close due to the thefts. Under Kim Foxx’s watch as top prosecutor in Chicago, the statistics are dreadful. Over the Labor Day weekend in the Windy City, there were at least 60 people shot, and there has been a 33 percent increase in murders over 2020. Under Mike Schmidt’s prosecutorial leadership in Portland, crime has skyrocketed. Recent data from the National Fraternal Order of Police shows that Portland’s homicide rate rose by an astounding 800 percent in the first five months of 2021 compared to the year before. At the national and local level, the left have aligned themselves with the criminals and become a party to their crimes.

It has been well-documented that billionaire George Soros had a hand in funding dozens of these prosecutors throughout the country. But he is hardly the only one. As Fox News recently showed, “cash from Facebook co-founder Mark Zuckerberg appears to have leaked into prosecutor races as part of his foundation’s larger mission to reform the criminal justice system… his cash has flowed through two nonprofits before hitting a federal PAC, which then pushed it to state-level PACs” to benefit leftist prosecutors.

While prominent individuals on the left are all in for the effort to radicalize the American justice system, what has been missing thus far is a conservative counterpunch. While the right has solid journalists like Heather MacDonald and Andy McCarthy with a background in criminal justice or prosecution, what they largely lack is a group of like-minded and well-funded candidates to actually enact change and ensure that law and order is enforced at the local level.

The good news is that conservatives already have a blueprint for success when it comes to forming such a legal movement. Despite the fact that most law school professors and faculty, as well as most lawyers in general, are extremely liberal, conservatives have forged a close-knit and effective legal community through organizations like the Federalist Society. All six of the originalists on the Supreme Court have ties to the Federalist Society, and the group has worked very effectively to install judges to the federal bench who will interpret the Constitution according to its original meaning and reject judicial activism. A similar approach to local district attorney races could yield fruitful results.

Conservatives have recognized the existential threat to law and order posed by radical leftist prosecutors. The next step is for them to take a page out of the Soros and Zuckerberg playbook and fund young candidates who will help undo the damage done by leftist district attorneys and restore traditional notions of law and order to cities and communities that desperately need it.

It will take half a Century to combat what the democrats have done. Now they are also trying to make public schools teach their beliefs. We The People have to tell the various School Administrations what we want our children taught. Teach the principles of respect, kindness, and dignity. Forget CRT… Further, teach about Prosperity and how to go for it. Make all aware of the freedoms we have and how they are not to be taken away from us. Some parents have to start being more responsible with disciplining children properly.

Soros has been bankrolling all of these wicked DA’s who prosecute the law abiding citizens and let go the wicked murderers. Kamala Harris is a perfect example of the wicked letting the wicked go to prey on law abiding tax paying citizens!!! Truth told!!!

We need the conservative branch of our country – over the whole country to stand up and take a stand. Many of these Marxist, socialist, woke folks are doing illegal things and the only group questioning them is the Judicial Watch!! Where are the conservatives who all know the illegal actions and wrongdoings of all of the left wing from the President on down!!! PLEASE FOR THE SAKE OF THIS COUNTRY AND YOUR GRANDCHILDREN, TAKE A STAND AND MOVE HEAVEN AND EARTH TO STOP THIS DESTRUCTION OF AMERICA.

If you are a prosecutor, you take an OATH to uphold the law, ENFORCE the law as written and to PROTECT the innocent in society. That is your DUTY and JOB. That is the definition of prosecutor. If you will not do that duty and job, then get out of the office, you don’t belong there. You are no better than the criminal you should be prosecuting. Plain and simple.

That is the question I have been asking every since Jeff Sessions was appointed. The electorate appears to acquiesce to every level below the DOJ. There is no excuse for our Presidents allowing the US AG to do nothing.

Conservative Prosecutors? Look at rural America and the “flyover” states, heartland America. The major division we are seeing is not a black-white, nor a economic division it’s more about a city-country divide which is huge. The city (large metropolitan) people have no clue as to the people who raise the food, the heavy manual labor, and the people who service the rural population. Farmers, ranchers, truck drivers, gun enthusiasts, et. al, are scorned as hicks & hillbillies, people who don’t understand jackshit about life.
Well surprise! That’s not what we are and we have a fuller understanding of what makes city tick. The only asset city slickers have is there are more of them, which still leaves slickers in the negative.

Yes agree, very perceptive of current time. A great divide is happening. We are being RULED (not Represented) by the progressive big city globalist elites. But they are coming down. The grass roots are fed up with the criminal crap. There is a big, DOWN HOME NATIONAL POPULIST movement happening in our country and the world. The left wing city slickers are totally ignoring it. Let’s GO BRANDON!

Agree – well said. The HEARTLAND is the correct reference to middle America. ???????? Let’s drop the demeaning “flyover” term the coastal elites use. It reflects their ignorance. Seriously? With the crime wave after “re-imagining police forces”, homeless encampments lining once beautiful beaches and cities with tent cities, used needles and piles of excrement,& high taxes the coasts and blue cities are a disaster. Now they’re asking for federal dollars (middle America) to use our tax money to bail them out? Not happening.

A(nti)C(onstitutionalL(iberty)U(ion) for many years has worked to undo the constitution because it restricts what lawyers, judges, politicians are allowed to do, they create new precidence that favors lawyers, more money, more power, less constitution and legitimate laws, only solution is to REMOVE ALL THE LAWYERS IN THE SWAMP AND bring in new people that will actually work for the betterment of the country, the commie-dems only care about money and power, they lie, cheat, steal to get power and then have no meaningful agenda to use it for, so they create useless “problems” to blow smoke up our butts to hang on to it, thier biggest fear is that they will lose power to somebody honest, you know, LIKE TRUMP!! and be called out and punished.

A lot of comments mention Soros. What is his history, does he live in USA, and what are his goals for our future. I suppose that he likes to see a divided nation & 13-years of increasing Fed debt…..

Yes Soros lives in NY. He has dual citizenship. He’s from Hungary but has been banned from his country. Soros undermines countries worldwide for total destruction. That’s what we saw with him funding Antifa, and funding corrupt elections in AG state offices and DA’s. This man is destructive.

Soros is now in Switzerland where no one can reach him. His mansion is Switzerland is a fortress and the country itself is the most fortified country on earth. He doesn’t want seal team six to be able to rid the world of a Nazi.

Judges in Chicago & San Francisco have ruled that shoplifters can steal up to $1000 and not be prosecuted, so what the heck is that all about? That is just encouraging shoplifting & the people that work in these stores are helpless to stop it , plus at risk to get hurt by these lawbreakers. How do these judges expect a business to continue to operate???

Republicans have become very spineless as demonstrated by the two candidates chosen by the GOP for president before President Trump. You cannot win elections being nice and tactful or non-confrontational. This is the position of many republican prosecutors – trying to be fair and seeing both sides of an argument. When Obamacare was passed and now the current social-changing tax and spend bill by the democrats, were they fair? Nope. That’s how they get their programs done.

Since campaign finance laws require a candidate to disclose where their money came from, we have an effective weapon against Marxist prosecutors. Any candidate that receives money from a Soros-backed or radical Left organization, shout it out to high heaven, raise a stink, let the people know the source of that candidate’s money and who’s pulling the strings.

We’re not winning and we’re not going to win when ELECTIONS KEEP GETTING RIGGED! . . . if the Red States threaten SECESSION and then get together and actually plan for Secession if need be. The Blue States CAN’T SURVIVE without the tax revenues of the Red States. Call their bluff BUT if that fails, THEN ACT ACCORDINGLY! . . . The “average” Democrat IS STUPID, we certainly have enough proof in the numbers of Jackasses they keep electing! . . . I’ll volunteer to do my part, let’s do it!

Amen!! No one has answered for the Russia hoax except one person; the media lies nightly with no consequences; our votes were discarded last election and nothing has changed to stop the criminals, so our votes will continue to be treated as trash. If at first you don’t secede, try, try again!

I do not believe that every election is rigged —— not possible in my opinion & does this mean that you will not vote in elections which is just what the other side of voters want you to do.

Every democratic electorate in most of the most populated and intellectually eleate cities in the US we’re corrupted(bought off) to make sure that their candidate won no matter what the actual balloting proved! This truth will never come to light!

I think the left Marxist Dems have been working on their grand design for decades, so when Trump got in the oval office to expose them all and sound the alarms to what is really happening to our country , they are now in full speed to destroy and intimidate . They knew it takes much time for change ,so Republican Conservatives are now blindsided and realizing how much damage everywhere has been done.

I wonder how either Soros or Zukerburg would feel if either of them was targeted and nearly fatally wounded would feel if the perpetrator was dismissed by one of the ‘conservative’ judges they helped
‘elect’…?

Exactly. That goes for the leftist billionaires’ bought and paid for DAs as well. While I wouldn’t wish that on anybody, I’d admittedly be very hard-pressed to feel very badly.
