Soros Seeks To "Reshape American Justice System" By Pouring Funds Into "Powerful" District Attorney Races

Tyler Durden's picture

With hundreds of millions of dollars poured into presidential and congressional elections in the United States it can be difficult, even for mega donors like George Soros, to truly understand how much influence is being "bought."  That's why Soros is pursuing a new strategy to dump millions into the campaigns of local district attorneys, a position which "exercises the greatest discretion and power in the system."  So far, Soros has funneled $3 million into seven local DA races over the past year but his support is "expected to intensify in the next few years, thanks to longer-term planning and candidate recruitment."  In general, Soros looks to fund progressive DAs running on platforms to "reduce racial disparity in sentencing" and support prison "diversion programs" for drug offenders instead of trials that could result in jail time.  As Politico points out:

Prosecutorial discretion gives district attorneys a huge say in the charges and sentences that defendants face. But reform efforts have not traditionally focused on harnessing that power.

 

They are often a very invisible part of the criminal justice system and the political system,” said Brenda Carter, director of the Reflective Democracy Campaign, an arm of the progressive Women Donors Network. “Many people can’t name their district attorney. It’s not an office people think about a lot.”

 

Carter’s group commissioned research in 2015 that found that 95 percent of elected local prosecutors in the U.S. are white and three-quarters overall are white men. It also highlighted a Wake Forest University study that found that a vast majority of prosecutors — 85 percent — run for reelection unopposed.

 

“I found that to be shocking, and I think people are waking up to the untapped potential for intervention in these seats to really change the day-to-day realities of criminal justice,” Carter said. “It’s been really gratifying for us to see the research taken up and run with by different groups around the country.”

So far, Soros has been quite successful with 6 out of 7 of his candidates ultimately winning their election bids.  Alas, despite the fact that DAs "exercise the greatest discretion and power in the system" one Soros pick in Mississippi proved it's possible for even a DA to overstep their legal bounds.  Hinds County, Mississipi DA, Robert Shuler, whose reelection campaign was funded by Soros, was recently charged by Mississippi's attorney general for "improperly providing information to defendants."     

Soros has spent on district attorney campaigns in Florida, Illinois, Louisiana, Mississippi, New Mexico and Texas through a network of state-level super PACs and a national “527” unlimited-money group, each named a variation on “Safety and Justice.” (Soros has also funded a federal super PAC with the same name.) Each organization received most of its money directly from Soros, according to public state and federal financial records, though some groups also got donations from nonprofits like the Civic Participation Action Fund, which gave to the Safety and Justice group in Illinois.

 

Soros’ spending started on these races about a year ago, when he put over $1 million into “Safety and Justice” groups that helped elect two new district attorneys in Louisiana and Mississippi and reelect a third — Hinds County, Miss., DA Robert Shuler Smith — who has since been charged by the Mississippi attorney general with improperly providing information to defendants.

 

After the Louisiana and Mississippi races, Soros next piled money into two of the biggest jurisdictions in the country: Houston’s Harris County (his lone losing effort so far) and Chicago’s Cook County, where he funded one of several groups that helped Kim Foxx defeat incumbent state’s attorney Anita Alvarez in a high-profile primary campaign dominated by the 13-month delay between the police shooting of Laquan McDonald and the indictment of the police officer involved.

 

In late spring, $107,000 from a Soros-funded New Mexico super PAC helped Raul Torrez win his Democratic district attorney primary by a 2-to-1 margin in Albuquerque’s Bernalillo County. Torrez’s Republican opponent dropped out of the general election soon after, citing the potentially exorbitant cost of opposing the Soros-backed candidate in the general election.

But, for those of you worried that Soros isn't doing enough to "reshape the American justice system" please know that the plan is to "invest" far more in these races going forward.  In fact, as Politico points out, the only hold back so far has been a lack of good puppetscandidates. 

While Soros has spent heavily in 2015 and 2016, a broader national push into local prosecutor campaigns is expected to intensify in the next few years, thanks to longer-term planning and candidate recruitment. A Safety and Justice group has already organized in Ohio, according to campaign finance filings there. But it has not yet disclosed raising or spending any money.

 

“There’s been a realization that there’s not very much we can do this year, when you’re coming up to an election,” said Steele. “You have to have the right candidates. That’s a big piece of the puzzle and why I’m part of this conversation. ... A lot of the conversations I’m having are about 2017 and 2018, about looking forward to next year in Virginia and other places.”

 

That means more local candidates should prepare for the shock of one of the biggest donors in American politics flooding their neighborhoods with ads.

Oddly enough, not everyone is pleased with New York billionaires meddling in local elections when they have no vested interest in the community.

Opponents of Soros’ favored candidates have laced into the billionaire, saying that his influence has wildly tipped the scales of local elections and even charging that he made residents less safe.

 

“As a candidate and citizen of Caddo Parish, if an outsider was that interested in the race, I wanted to know exactly what he had in mind for the criminal justice system if he were to win,” said Dhu Thompson, a Louisiana attorney who lost a district attorney race to a Soros-backed candidate, James Stewart, in 2015. Soros gave over $930,000 — more than 22 times the local median household income — to the group boosting Stewart.

 

“I know some of his troubling opinions on social issues, especially the criminal justice system,” Thompson said. “I’ve never known him as an individual who was very strong on some of our crime and punishment issues. I felt it was very detrimental to the safety of Caddo Parish, and that’s why I took such a strong stand against him."

That said, we're sure any objections to George's plan is derived from a simple misunderstanding of his motives.  After all, last time someone said he wanted to "fundamentally transform" America it worked out pretty well, right?

Oh fuck!  That's my district:

Uggh, I know how to run a local campaign, and I'm tempted volunteer  to stop a Soros puppet from getting in.  The problem is, I don't know much about the opponent.

If Soros is behind one of them then you should just trust the other guy is better.

El Vaquero's picture

Actually, I just looked up the other candidate.  It's Simon Kubiak.  I have met him in the past because he was an attorney for a friend of mine.  He's a decent standup guy, and he tells his donors that if they're giving to his campaign, they're doing it because they like what he stands for, not for favors. 

 

EDIT:  He already dropped out of the race.  Fucking fuck!

"The other guy is better "

Exactly - these positions are for short periods of time in many cases as the - get out of jail card free - are issued - it is a cheap counter for th next election - on billboards all over town

Correlation - MacAullife - lets 200,000 out of jail to vote for H- and Soros creates more puppets who didn't go to jail so they owe the MAN

Game is intensifying - get whitely!!!!

I see where others had to drop out because he out monyed the shit out of them, and obviously the Democrats must have pressured them as well. I will keep digging for info.

El Vaquero's picture

Yeah, the Republican also dropped out, which is too bad because he's actually a stand up kind of guy.  This is bullshit.  16 years of Brandenburg and her bullshit, and now we're going to get a fucking Soros shill?  I cannot stress enough just how much this is fucking bullshit.  The Soros clan all need wooden stakes through their fucking hearts. 

 

I'm bookmarking all of the links, BTW.

FBI Director James Comey said his agents found no evidence that anyone intended to break the law and said "no reasonable prosecutor" would have brought a criminal case.

This explains why Soros is influencing DA races.  They decide what is reasonable to prosecute.

just beat the drums nonstop that he's funded by SOROS and other sinister orgs....

make sure the crook has to constantly defend himself....and then get other groups to spread lies and rumours about him nonstop, just don't tie it yourself and campaign...

 

El Vaquero's picture

If he had an opponent, I would openly help him, but he doesn't even have an opponent.  I've worked on local campaigns, including one where we beat an incumbent that the electorate wasn't pissed off at by a margin of 2 to 1.  That was also in a primary election, not the general election.  We used what are considered unconventional methods:

 

1)  Get the list of people who voted in previous elections for the specific office that your candidate is running for. (Not unconventional)

2)  Call a fair number of them, and be up front.  Ask them an open ended question:  What are your top 3-5 concerns for the office that my candidate is running for?  This is very unconventional.  Most politicians rely on polls using closed ended questions, and they don't really get a true feel for what the voters are concerned with.

3) Analyze the answers.  You will find that patterns emerge, and a lot of the voters have similar concerns.  You'll also find that there are some retards who insist on certain hot button issues that have zero to do with the office that your candidate is running for.

4) Formulate positions on the issues that concern the voters.

5) Only address those issues unless asked directly about something else.

6) Focus most heavily on the people who voted for that office in the past.

7) Win

 

As I have said, this is for local offices.  It would take enormous resources to do that for a national level office, though polling with open ended questions to see what voters think is important would still be useful.

I wish Soros would get back to his usual "two boys at the same time" amusement, 'cause I don't think our democracy can survive any more of his help.

Some golden Talmudic oldies for those of you unfamiliar with whom you're dealing with (ie: Soros and his ilk):

* “If a ‘goy’ (Gentile) hits a Jew he must be killed.” (Sanhedrin 58b)

* “If a Jew murders a ‘goy’ there will be no death penalty.” (Sanhedrin 57a)

* “Jews may use subterfuges to circumvent a ‘goy.’” (Baba Kamma 113a)

* “All children of the ‘goyim’ (Gentiles) are animals.” (Yebamoth 98a)

* “Girls born of the ‘goyim’ are in a state of ‘niddah’ (menstrual uncleanness!) from birth.” (Abodah Zarah 36b)

* “The ‘goyim’ are not humans. They are beasts.” (Baba Mezia 114b)

* “If you eat with a ‘goy’ it is the same as eating with a dog.” (Tosapoth, Jebamoth 94b)

* “Even the best of the ‘goyim’ should all be killed.” (Soferim 15)

etc. etc., ad infinitum. This is just a tiny sampling of what the "holy" talmud teaches. From an early age. BTW, "goyim" = "human cattle" = non-jew. That includes, of course, Palestinians and...the rest of us. Get the picture?

Soros was taught to think this way, which is why i think he is such an extreme psychopath. He just happens to have tons of  dubiously gotten money and "connections" to carry out whatever he likes for the brethren or his own amusement. And, yes, not ALL jews are bad, as every human has good and bad qualities. But the main actors who carry this shit out and have the practical control on this planet *are* khazars. The correlation is pretty much = 1. Coincidence??  Seems like they have taken the teachings of the talmud deep into their hearts.

You can search for info on the internet, with both sides stating their cases.

One such site:  http://www.talmudunmasked.com/ 

I won't get into what jews call "blood libel", for which there again are differing opinions (search the internet "jewish blood sacrifices"). You can make up your own mind. But even today, with ISIL for example, you can find the filthiest, most disgusting attrocities committed on children which involve beheadings - or worse. Human beings, under the influence of extremeist ideology (religious or otherwise) are very capable of doing such things.

And finally, a quote:

"Israeli citizen Yossi Gurvitz, a former Talmud (yeshiva) student reveals the racism, homicide and child molestation-advocacy in the Babylonian Talmud and subsequent authoritative rabbinic legal texts authored by Rabbi Moses Maimonides and Rabbi Joseph Karo (“Shulchan Aruch”). He reveals Judaism’s sympathy for Islam and its undying hatred for Christianity."

P.S.: Correlation is not = 1, but still is very high. Virtually 1, for all intents and purposes. Khazars have inordinate control of or inordinate influence in many institutions, including government, banking, finance, media, judicial matters and even now, evidently, control of election processes. So they control the game. It is rigged in their favor and has not the slightest semblance to democracy or republic. Looks more like Communistic Oligarchy, if there is such a thing.

The Russians know all about it. You can ask them about the Bolshevik Revolution or research it. It's not like this is the first time that they have been involved in anything like this.

What i'm trying to get across here is that every so often in human history, one group or another will get it into their heads that they are somehow "special" and "above all others". This is how empires have been built or tried to be built and failed. Always there is a great deal of misery and human suffering that accompanies such attempts.

I am not against the jews, as contradictory as that sounds. If any other group were doing the same or similar things, for example, a group calling themselves "aryan", i would be posting things critical of aryans instead and most likely be labeled "anti-aryan". When i see the world is in such a state of division, hatred, violence and suffering, and i see and connect the dots of the most powerful institutions in the world that are responsible for this state of affairs, and that a preponderance of heads or most influential members of these institutions are predominently members of this group, with Soros and Rothchild being perfect examples, i cannot help but speak out and say what i see and what i have discovered in reference to that group. It helps to understand the thinking of that group and where they are coming from.

I just do not want to see this planet getting worse and worse, and the main actors, whomever they might be, with no favorites based on one label or another, not being stopped and prevented from continuing this wanton destruction, killing and immiseration of the world. I realize that not all the actors are jewish, of course. Many are not. Everyone involved needs to be prevented from continuing this madness. It's up to the majority of people to say something and do something about it.

I won't be posting anything else about this here on zh. I think i've had my say over the last little while and i think that i've pissed off a lot of people already. If you want to know more, please do some research. There's lots out there. Read with an open mind if possible. And please speak out! Again, i do not condone violence - there's just way, way too much of it around now. I do support taking non-violent action, perhaps some creative ways to counter this mad rush for global destruction.

It's time for some new legislation...let's call it the "World Peace and Refugee Resettlement Act". And let's fund it with a 95% compassion tax on all assets over $100 Million...Surely Soros would not object; "it's for the refugees and peace".

Where are the jews? And I tell you, he is not in the same side that Likudists... in other words AIPAC, ADL, Sheldon Adelson.. in other words The Congress and The White House

"Oh I broke my ankle" So let's blame George Soros

Who's backing Wiki Leaks? Who's behind all the hacking attacks to the democrats? When did Alex Jones ever point out the israelis?

because his vision of a global government has one huge obstacle in it's way.  the American patriot.  to this point, he supports the theft, murder and destruction of the American patriot.  he already owns the government.

Soros is why the idea of "redistributing wealth" is not such a bad idea...do we really need multi-billionaires? Does their weatlth truly "trickle down" or does so much money, buy so much power, that one guy can fuck over a billion people in the name of more profit and more power for himself?
