🧵 Did you know that LA County DA George Gascón is not only Soros-funded, but that he STARTED the Progressive Prosecutor Project w/Soros and convinced him to provide $50M in seed funding to the ACLU in 2014 to get it started? He spoke about it in 2020 at USC. Here are a few clips
"We started looking at a map of the US, trying to identify strategically, what are the urban centers...one of the convos was, how do we go about creating a movement here? Which led to Open Societies Foundation, George Soros' foundation, putting $50M in 2014 thru ACLU to begin it"
Why wasn't he as radical as SF DA? "You have to progressively... a lot of things that are acceptable today, in 2011 would have gotten me - there would have been a recall two years after I was in office, and I didn't want to get recalled because that doesn't get the work done."
The way the ACLU's press release about the $50 million was worded, it wasn't apparent that's what this was for - but Gascon admitted it. By partnering w/ACLU they could use ACLU's existing groundgame network. aclu.org/press-releases…
I wrote about this in December 2020, but it needs to be seen again. Don't let these people fool us

This org, Fair and Just Prosecution, is the "research" arm of the Progressive Prosecutor Project. Read up, and put your decoding glasses on first.

This isn't solely a Dem issue. Tori Verber-Salazar, who was GOP last I checked, is featured prominently fairandjustprosecution.org/meet-the-movem…

Californians, your government (through @CAPublicHealth) awarded a $192 MILLION no-bid contract to a Sacramento PR firm for "COVID-19 graphic design." Looking much deeper into this.
Here is the PR firm's site: rs-e.com/work/the-cente…
You've seen these signs, right, California? $192 MILLION

🧵It's totally off-base. He's required to submit the most recent 5 yrs that *he has filed* and it ONLY applies to the primary ballot. #SB27 Expressly says if they haven't filed for the tax year immediately preceding the election they should submit w/in 5 days of filing. Newsom 1/
as far as we know had not filed his 2021 tax returns before the primary. He *had* filed his Form 700, which gives a lot of info but not the detail of a 1040. In other yrs he's shared select parts of his return w/selected journos in April, so IMO he got an extension to avoid 2/
having to release his tax returns, partly b/c of my reporting on his gifted mansion. What he DID release supports my theory - the LLC that purchased the mansion, which he and his wife were allegedly the only members of, isn't listed. He knew that I would dig into it. 3/

Four years ago tonight, I was getting ready to go to sleep when I heard sirens from the fire station near my house, the sirens carrying first responders to #Borderline Bar and Grill.

I hope the 2 girls I sat with at the candelight vigil have found peace.
One thing that struck me was that VCSO Deputy Ron Helus proposed to his wife in the very building in which he died, nearly 31 years to the day from their 1st date. At that time it was Charley Brown's restaurant. #BorderlineStrong ktla.com/news/local-new…
But what gets me every Christmas is thinking of my friend Chanda. Her kids' babysitter, Noel Sparks, was killed that night, just hours after participating in Wed night church. Chanda had to tell her daughters that Noel wasn't coming back to church, that she was with Jesus...

🧵My reply to this "Pandemic amnesty" nonsense from the Brown professor writing for The Atlantic. Let's start at the beginning, where she admits basically that her family were judgmental assholes and bullies from the beginning.
No, we pretty much all knew that cloth masks, especially made out of bandanas, weren't gonna do shit. It's willful ignorance of scientific facts to claim otherwise
We've all known that schools being closed for too long would lead to learning loss and that online school without proper testing and INDIVIDUAL OFFICE HOURS with teachers would be a disaster. Well, those of us who've successfully done online school with their kids before 🙋🏻‍♀️

Interesting that the woman who took the photo of the Fetterman sign burning in PA is a hyper-partisan... and that her farmer neighbor was featured in a Biden commercial in 2020. Perhaps same neighbor where the sign was burned? IDK. Here's her FB post with edit history ImageImageImageImage
On FB hating conservatives and here on Twitter celebrating her neighbor's commercial. Was she involved in having him appear in the commercial?

Lots of effort made here... ImageImageImageImage
PS all times on the FB post are Pacific since that's where I am

In September 2020 we had to place this editor's note at the top of a story about a lab leak at Wuhan in order to avoid being canceled and putting our writers out of work. All because Health Feedback - which relied on Peter Daszak of EcoHealth Alliance for expertise - said so. Image
Here is just some of our reporting, much of it original by by myself and @Hounsizzle outing Fauci and Daszak redstate.com/tags/rscovid
