AMAC Exclusive – By Andrew Abbott

Gascon

It’s been just under three weeks since San Francisco voters recalled their radically progressive District Attorney, Chesa Boudin, and already Californians look poised to take down another radical DA just to the South – Los Angeles top prosecutor George Gascon. Gascon assumed office 11 months after Boudin thanks in large part to massive donations from progressive megadonor George Soros, but is now facing his second recall effort in as many years. If polls are correct, he may not survive this time around.

The first recall effort against Gascon – which began just months after he took office – fell short of the signature requirements to make it to a city-wide ballot. This time around, however, the backlash against Gascon’s radical policies appears far more robust. According to the latest reporting, the Recall Gascon Campaign has already gathered well over the 569,000 signatures needed to advance the measure to the ballot this fall. However, the recall campaign has continued to work to gather more, as all signatures must be verified. By some estimates, up to 30% of signatures will be discarded as either unverifiable or duplicates, meaning that the campaign likely will need around 700,000 signatures to safely ensure that the recall measure will indeed make it on the ballot.

As the Recall campaign has grown, it has continued to find unprecedented support among normally liberal enclaves of voters. On Wednesday, The El Monte City Council gave a unanimous vote of ‘no confidence’ against Gascon. In the resolution, they state that they “believe that DA Gascon’s policies have now been shown to be detrimental to public safety in El Monte and Los Angeles County, and also detrimental to the goal we share, of rehabilitating people away from criminal activity, as shown by the high failure rate of DA Gascon’s policy of not holding people accountable for their criminal acts.”

The resolution makes El Monte the 35th local governing body in LA County to pass a vote of “no confidence” against the Los Angeles DA. The majority of these cities and localities specifically cite his “woke” criminal justice policies as making their citizens and communities less safe.

The El Monte City Council resolution was prompted by the murder earlier this year of two city police officers by a violent criminal whom Gascon’s policies had allowed back on the streets. The perpetrator, Justin Flores, was arrested in 2021 for charges relating to illegal drug and gun possession, just the latest in a string of crimes for Flores that included a prior conviction and prison sentence for car theft, a second prison term for burglary, being a member of a violent gang, and multiple misdemeanors from 2013-2020. Despite this extensive criminal background, Gascon declined to seek jail time for Flores and, instead, sought his release on probation. On June 14th, he shot and killed Corporal Michael Paredes and Officer Joseph Santana before taking his own life after a standoff with police.

In yet another sign of his callous indifference to the harm his policies are causing, Gascon has dismissed criticism for his lenient sentence, stating “He [Flores] was arrested for possession of drugs and possession of a gun, not the use of a gun…Under the circumstances, I believe it [probation] was an appropriate outcome.”

Tragically for the residents of Los Angeles, known criminals committing heinous crimes against innocent citizens has been a recurring theme of Gascon’s tenure. Last month, a 17-year-old intentionally drove his car into a woman walking her baby in a stroller. The driver was on probation at the time from a prior conviction for spiking a girl’s drink with date rape drugs in 2019. The perpetrator was charged in the hit-and-run incident with two felony charges of assault by means of force likely to produce great bodily injury and one felony count of hit-and-run – but notably, not with attempted murder.

Once again, Gascon did not press for jail time, and the teen was sentenced to five to seven months in a juvenile probation camp. Prosecutors describe the camp as “less than a military school and a little bit tougher than a summer camp.” The victim blasted Gascon for the lenient sentence in a statement to the New York Post, saying that “George Gascon doesn’t value my life or the life of my child, or any other victim out there, and would rather reward the monsters like [the juvenile suspect] by demonstrating to them that their actions have no consequences.”

With the deadline for signature submissions on July 6 fast approaching, there are some signs that Gascon may be starting to come to grips with reality. Though he remains as unrepentant as ever for the devastating effect of his policies, Gascon recently told the Los Angeles Times that “I’m not denying the perception [that crime is rising]; the perception is there… The perception is reality.” For Gascon, that reality which so many Los Angeles residents are facing and which he so long ignored may prove to be his downfall.

So it is almost ( 2 ) down with DIRTY DA’s in CA getting recalled & removed, how many more to go in every democrat run city in America? I have a grand idea for the lawmakers to consider, any & all
people in America in the political arena that have excepted donations from the George Soros Open Society & affiliated organizations, by law be REMOVED from office & at the same time DEPORT George Soros from America without the possibility of ever returning. At the same time, by law, SHUTDOWN his ( 50 ) plus affiliated organizations of Soros permanently…Next up, take a closer look at Bill Gates, Mark Zuckerbucks & people like Jeff Bezos of Big Tech fame…
This is only a partial list, there are so many more that need to be scrutinized closely, if not arrested.
Bill… :~)

As with everything in California, the decision is a coin toss. Just a realistic assessment based on the political make-up of the state and total control the Democrat Party has on all facets of government in the state. Gascon is simply a symptom of a much larger problem in the state. A state driven completely by “Progressive” Democrats meaning Socialists calling themselves by another name. Much like in other Democrat run and controlled states, replacing the individual doesn’t solve the problem, because that individual is usually replaced by someone else who supports the exact same set of principles and policies as the person they just replaced. Meaning another “Progressive” Democrat, who ends up just doing the same thing. What needs to be done is remove ALL Democrats from political power in California for California to have a chance of righting itself. Unfortunately, I don’t see a path to doing that based on simply just voting in California anymore. So the mass exodus from California is likely to continue. I am just concerned from the states where all these people move to, as they have already shown they take their convoluted political views with them when they leave and set about to recreate the sh**hole they just escaped.

What are the people waiting for? Get with it, get busy on recalling him! I do hope Gascon is the next Soros-backed DA to fall. If he is not recalled, no whining or crying, as then they love what he is doing to their city.

Bill on the Hill is so right. America not only gave the douch bag Soros asylum but citizenship. He should be hung for all the evil he has done to Jews, and the economies of various countries like taking down the Bank of England and for all the evil he has done in America. He is behind every lousy DA, mayor, governor, most of Congress mainly all Democrats and rhinos and has touted that God, America and Trump are obstacles to his One World Order. Strip him of citizenship and include his kids as his oldest son is being touted as the antiChrist which should tell you the apple doesn’t fall far from the tree. He is also behind the Convention of States which anything he supports you can bet is no good for America or Americans. He bankrolls ANTIFA and BLM. He owns Pelosi and so many others including the Clintons and Obamas. It is time to take the trash out, America and I hate to do it, but toss it in the oceans.

It’s interesting how so much effort goes into verifying that signatures are legitimate when they are on a recall petition. But any efforts to check the legitimacy of a voter are quickly labeled as “disenfranchisement.” One of those things that make you go hmmmm.

George Gascon and all other DA’s and other officials whose elections were “bought” by George Soros need to be recalled and charged with crimes. Soros should also be charged and jailed for the rest of his disgusting life. It has to be illegal for foreigners to contribute multi millions of dollars to elect those whose only purpose is to destroy America by first destroying our legal system.

People should boycott Progressive Ins. To stop some of Soros income, then to ease his stress send him and his clan to visit the Philippines to open his business ventures! Pretty sure the president there would appreciate his presence there in that country!

Too bad we can’t somehow get rid of Soros!!! He buys people and then uses them to do his dirty work. The USA is in dire straits right now. I urge everyone to vote very carefully in November. We can help stop what is happening to our country! That is, of course, if we can get nonfraudulent elections!!! GOD BLESS AMERICA

Gascón couldn’t even handle the job of police chief in my hometown of 450,000. What made him think he could succeed as DA in Los Angeles? Why did they even hire him or vote him in? Are the people of that city really that stupid?

Who holds a crooked city DA accountable, a crooked state AG? Or maybe Biden’s AG.
