Newly-installed Los Angeles County District Attorney George Gascón is doing everything he said he would do while campaigning. And now we Angelinos are scratching our heads, thinking: “What have we done?”
Gascón has already begun to end cash bail, meaning most people arrested for crimes will simply be released back onto the streets. He is preventing county prosecutors from seeking the death penalty.
This should come as a surprise to nobody who voted for him. Gascón is doing exactly what he said he would do, when George Soros funded him and Sen. Bernie Sanders (I-VT) endorsed him.
I am proud to endorse @GeorgeGascon because he understands a district attorney’s job is not to throw people in jail, but to fight for justice.

This week, local reporter Bill Melugin of Fox affiliate KTTV-11 reported that DA Gascón will ask for a lighter sentence for a Utah man accused of committing two murders in cold blood last year.
One of his alleged victims was Los Angeles Sheriff’s Deputy Joseph Solano, who was waiting in line at a local Jack in the Box when the suspect shot him in the back of the head.

In the campaign, Gascón promised to do for L.A what he did for San Francisco, where he made the city famous for petty crime, drug abuse, and human excrement on the sidewalk.
And he’s doing it.
What does a radical, Soros-funded, Sanders-backed Los Angeles district attorney have to do with Georgia? Everything.
Because the voters in Georgia are being told something very straightforward, very direct, and very dangerous to America.
Last month, Senate Minority Leader Chuck Schumer declared: “Now we take Georgia, and then we change America.”

It’s no secret what he means.
If they win both Senate seats in the upcoming Georgia runoffs, Democrats will take effective control of the entire Senate, with Vice President-elect Kamala Harris casting a tie-breaking vote.
They will confirm all of Joe Biden’s worst nominees for the Cabinet. They will push through all of the liberal judges on his mystery list.
WorseDemocrats have made it clear that they will end the filibuster for ordinary legislation. They will pass H.R. 1, Nancy Pelosi’s bill to allow Democrats to steal elections nationwide — legally.
They will also pass a House bill to make Washington, DC, a state, perhaps adding Puerto Rico as well. That will add four new Democratic Senators, a near-permanent majority.
They will pass amnesty for over 11 million illegal aliens; pack the Supreme Court; raise taxes — and that’s just the beginning.
Don’t take my word for it. They’re telling you this.
And all their plans hinge on the election of Jon Ossoff and Raphael Warnock, who have told you who they are in the past.
Ossoff, who is running against Sen. David Perdue (R-GA), styled himself as a centrist when he ran for a congressional seat in the Atlanta suburbs in 2017. But in 2020, he has welcomed Sanders’s support.
Ossoff on @BernieSanders: “I welcome his support. His advocacy for ensuring that healthcare is a human right in this country, for putting the interests of working families over corporate interests is welcome, is necessary, is appreciated. And so is his support.” #gapol #gasen pic.twitter.com/JyVaUOS4vX

Earlier this year, he vowed to humiliate Trump supporters so that they could never again participate in public life:
“You're going to get beaten so bad you can never run or show your face again in public, because we have had enough…"

Moreover, Ossoff’s deputy political director recently revealed that Democrats plan to add three seats to the Supreme Court — and stuff them with liberal justices.

Warnock, running against Sen. Kelly Loeffler (R-GA), is a career radical who defended Jeremiah Wright and says he wants to “dismantle the value system” of America.
FROM THE ARCHIVES:
“We celebrate Reverend Wright… He is a preacher and a prophet”
Warnock appeared on Greta Van Susteren’s show in 2008 to praise anti-American and anti-Semitic Reverend Jeremiah Wright, even as Obama condemned the preacher’s offensive remarks. #GAsen #GApol pic.twitter.com/YqmKAONIke

Georgia senate candidate Raphael Warnock said in 2017 “I came to dismantle the value system” of the American “empire”

Warnock has even said that America must “repent” for its “worship of whiteness.”

Warnock has preached divisive rhetoric many times from his pulpit.

The lesson that Los Angeles voters have for Georgia voters is simple: listen to the “progressives” when they tell you what they want to do.
Listen to what they are saying. They are not hiding anything. They want to change America. All of them: Schumer, Ossoff, Warnock … and Gascón. They’re selling their change based on the false premise that America is inherently bad.
And once you buy that change, there are no refunds.
If you don’t believe me, wait a few months and then take a long, hard look at Los Angeles, because the City of Angels will be forever changed.
If voters in Georgia buy that kind of change for America, it’s hard even to imagine the magnitude of that potential remorse.
