While everyone has been fighting either for or against Trump and arguing about all sorts of different important issues, there’s been a major force in the progressive movement skulking around in the shadows, quietly changing the face of law enforcement while no one’s looking.
Rich guy George Soros has been hard at work, using his vast fortune like some sort of diabolical super villain to buy elections for district attorneys of his choice.
So he and other progressives can control what kind of cases are prosecuted.
Via Free Beacon:
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.
Soros previously pushed millions into district attorney races in Florida, Illinois, Mississippi, Louisiana, Texas, and New Mexico.
This man is a serious threat to the current liberty and free market system we all benefit from, and he’s going to get away with this garbage as long as conservatives continue to look the other way and not raise their voices.
Progressivism is the single biggest enemy to liberty that exists, and part of the reason for that is because these people are absolutely willing to do whatever it takes to push their agenda on the rest of the country.
It’s time for conservatives to get their heads back in the game so we can keep Soros at bay.
