    Voters in San Francisco have chosen to recall embattled District Attorney Chesa Boudin following a recall effort centered on his handling of rising crime across the city. San Francisco voted to recall Boudin with 61%, compared to 39% who wanted him to stay as the district attorney, according to results at the time the Associated Press called the race. Boudin was elected in 2019 with 50.8% of the vote and was sworn in as San Francisco's 29th district attorney on Jan. 8 2020.
  • Colombia's election: How could the voters be so stupid? They just elected a far-left Hugo Chavez-adoring freak named Gustavo Petro for president

    American Thinker ^ | 06/21/2022 | Monica Showalter
    Colombia, which is America's strongest ally, has always had the most level-headed voters in the region. They've had two conservative parties, sometimes at once, and voters there have always rejected the crazy left, which in their case, is a Castro-grade revolutionary crazy grade of left, with Bill Ayers-types on steroids. They did, after all, fight a 60-year war against Marxist narcoterrorists, with only a few university wokesters defending them. So it was shocking news that on Sunday, Colombians went and elected just about the worst leftist of this stripe, a former M-19 narcoguerrilla named Gustavo Petro, president, turning one of...

    Representatives for George Soros no longer want to be associated with disgraced prosecutor Chesa Boudin now that he's been rebuked by the liberal voters of San Francisco, the Washington Free Beacon has learned. Hours after Boudin was recalled by double-digits on Tuesday, representatives for the liberal billionaire contacted the Free Beacon to reject its characterization of Boudin as a "George Soros darling." The Soros representatives from public relations firm BerlinRosen say he never contributed to Boudin, and that it is wrong to label Boudin a "Soros prosecutor." "We disagree with any analysis that labels any prosecutor as a ‘Soros prosecutor'—each...

    California Political Review ^ | June 7, 2022 | Stephen Frank
    The DA’s office apparently did not record the specific county jail sentences for many cases in its data dashboard. For the convictions where the DA provided specific county jail sentencing information, roughly half of the sentences agreed to were eight days or less, and some were as low as one or two days. The DA’s data, along with court records and information from DataSF, tell a chilling tale of gang members, drug dealers, and multiple violent repeat offenders sometimes serving just a short time in county jail, released on probation, or sent to diversion programs.

    Sigmund Freud's last surviving granddaughter died at the age of 97. Freud is considered the founder of psychoanalysis and one of the most important and influential scientists of the 20th century. "I'm very skeptical about much of psychoanalysis," she once told the Boston Globe. "I think that's such a narcissistic treat that I can't believe in it."

    The Federalist ^ | 06/08/2022 | Helen Raleigh
    On Tuesday, San Francisco’s largely liberal residents successfully recalled their woke district attorney, Chesa Boudin. The majority of San Franciscans held Boudin accountable for the city’s skyrocketing crimes and the deterioration of the quality of life. The recall’s success has significant implications for San Francisco and the rest of the country. 1. Wokeness Gone Too Far, Even For Democrat VotersSince elected San Francisco’s DA in November 2019, Boudin has become the standard-bearer of the so-called progressive prosecution movement, which includes Los Angeles County DA George Gascón (he previously served as San Francisco’s DA), Chicago Cook County DA Kim Foxx, Philadelphia...
  • Son of Brinks Robbery convicts removed as San Francisco DA

    San Francisco DA Chesa Boudin, the son of Kathy Boudin and David Gilbert -- both convicted for their roles in the deadly Brink's robbery in Rockland County, was removed from office overnight after a heated recall. Many felt he was inexperienced and avoided charging criminals, siding with offenders over victims. But his supporters say his platform is in line with voters who approved measures to reduce sentences. Recalls are increasingly being used in California. You likely remember Gov. Gavin Newsom easily survived one in September. Many political pundits are saying this is a signal to Democrats nationwide to fine-tune their...

    New York Post ^ | June 8, 2022 | June 8, 2022
    San Franciscans’ landslide repudiation of Chesa Boudin’s de-prosecution strategy is good for San Francisco, of course — but it’s also good for all big, dense cities such as New York. It’s even good for the climate. Cities only work when people behave according to common standards — and the de-prosecution movement has proven that absent an external deterrent, enough people will behave hellishly to make life hell for everyone else. San Franciscans voted to remove Boudin from office for a simple reason: He couldn’t deliver on his promise. The supposedly idealist young prosecutor promised to cut crime while declining to...

    San Francisco residents voted overwhelmingly Tuesday (June 7) to recall progressive District Attorney Chesa Boudin.(Associated Press) SAN FRANCISCO (AP) - San Francisco residents voted overwhelmingly Tuesday (June 7) to recall progressive District Attorney Chesa Boudin following a heated campaign that captivated the country and bitterly divided Democrats over crime, policing and public safety reform in the famously liberal city. Recall proponents cheered the results at a victory party, with California state leaders of the hotel and retailers associations lauding Boudin’s removal as a sign that visitors, shoppers and workers will be prioritized again in a city that relies heavily on...

    San Francisco District Attorney Chesa Boudin was recalled by San Francisco voters Tuesday night, and when speaking to supporters afterward, said that he was recalled because of general frustrations about San Francisco crime and economic hardship brought on by the pandemic. "People are angry, they're frustrated, and I want to be very clear about what happened tonight: The right-wing billionaires outspent us three to one, they exploited an environment in which people are appropriately upset, and they created an electoral dynamic where we were literally shadowboxing," Boudin said. "Voters were not given an opportunity to choose between criminal justice reform...

But primaries will determine who may end up representing millions of Americans in California, Iowa, Mississippi, Montana, New Jersey, New Mexico and South Dakota.

    Hours after winning election as San Francisco district attorney in 2019, Chesa Boudin stood, beaming, inside a packed dive bar in the Mission District. “What comes next is critical,” said the then-39-year-old public defender, part of the nationwide movement to elect district attorneys who seek to reimagine public safety and redefine the role of a prosecutor. “In many ways, getting here today was the easy part.” Those words may have proved grimly prophetic for the newly minted D.A. Boudin’s 2½-year tenure as San Francisco’s top prosecutor has resembled the “knife fight in a phone booth” adage often used to describe...

    Kathy Boudin, who spent decades in prison for her part in the deadly 1981 Brink’s armored truck heist as a member of the radical militant group Weather Underground, died of cancer at the age of 78 in New York on Sunday. In October, 1981, Boudin and members of the group teamed up with the Black Liberation Army for the robbery to help fund their anti-government campaigns. They targeted a Brink’s armored truck, which they held up in Rockland County, making out with $1.6 million. During the robbery, gunmen killed Brink’s security guard Peter Paige before transferring the money to a...

    (The Center Square) – A California lawmaker introduced a bill Monday that would prohibit local law enforcement agencies from retaining the DNA profiles collected from victims of sexual assault in databases used to identify crime suspects, to advance privacy protections for sexual assault survivors. Senate Bill 1228 was sponsored by Sen. Scott Wiener to ensure that a sexual assault victims’ DNA could not be used against them in the future. The bill would prohibit the DNA profiles collected from victims of sexual assault – including rape kits – to be used for any other purpose than identifying the perpetrator of...

    Real Time" host Bill Maher warned of the lasting impacts school mask mandates could have on children and argued that children need to be exposed to the world's germs. During Friday's installment of the show's "Overtime" segment, the panel discussed the recent recall of three progressive school board members who were ousted for prioritizing woke initiatives, like renaming schools named after former presidents, over the wellbeing of students. Maher asked former assistant San Francisco district attorney Brooke Jenkins, who is leading the recall effort against current DA Chesa Boudin, if it was time to stop masking children. "Having a 5-year-old...
  • Adult Transsexual Child Molester Will Be Sent to Female Juvenile Facility

    Moonbattery ^ | Jan. 30, 2022
    After getting arrested for sexually molesting children is a good time to declare yourself transsexual — and make sure to do it in a jurisdiction run by liberals. Just ask James “Hannah” Tubbs: A Los Angeles County judge on Thursday ordered Hannah Tubbs, a transgender California woman, to serve two years in a juvenile facility after [he] pleaded guilty to sexually assaulting a 10-year-old girl in 2014. Two years in juvie is pretty mild for molesting a 10-year-old — especially when a guy gets to serve it in a female facility. Before doing so, the judge criticized far-left District Attorney...

    Prosecutors at the San Francisco District Attorney’s Office are being accused of withholding evidence in hopes of convicting a San Francisco police officer of excessive force. The NBC Bay Area's Investigative Unit has learned a criminal investigator for the DA’s office, Magen Hayashi, testified Thursday that she was ordered by her own co-workers – attorneys inside the district attorney’s office – to withhold evidence, and said she believed she would have been fired if she refused. District Attorney Chesa Boudin and his office did not respond to requests for comment. The allegations stem from the ongoing criminal case against San...
