On occasion during the 2020 presidential race, law and order and the riots that have devastated many American cities, have been discussed. But, presidents don’t have much to do with law and order. Local prosecutors do.
In Texas, the big county prosecutors are elected and called district attorneys. The only person that can bring charges to a grand jury in most cases under Texas law are district attorneys.
The two big counties In Texas where the district attorney race is on the ballot in 2020 are Harris and Travis. If you care about law and order and safety from criminals, not to mention effectively reigning in the rioters that have been attacking property and person in Harris and Travis Counties, the stakes are huge.
Thomas Jefferson once said, “The execution of laws is more important than the making them.” By his actions, it appears New York-based billionaire George Soros agrees with him.
In 2016, George Soros contributed $500,000 (half a million dollars) to the campaign of Harris County Democratic nominee for District Attorney. In 2018, Soros contributed $900,000 to the District Attorney Democratic primary challenger of Jose Gonzalez, who proceeded to defeat incumbent Democrat Nico LaHood and then the general election. And I have not seen numbers, but Soros also supported John Creuzot, who became the Democratic nominee and later the Dallas County District Attorney in 2018. In the 2020 Democratic primary for the open Travis County District Attorney position, Soros contributed $652,000 to the Texas Justice & Safety PAC. The campaigns differ on how much of that went to winner of the Democratic primary, but that winner, Jose Garza admits to getting the benefit of $409,000 of the Soros money. Jose Garza also received money from the Real Justice PAC out of San Francisco.
Under the programs instituted under Soros-funded Texas D.A.s, crime has soared. See this article discussing that trend in Harris County, laying the surge primarily at the feet of the catch and release practice of Kim Ogg. Dallas County D.A. Dallas D.A. John Creuzot has announced that he will not prosecute theft of property valued under $750.
Mary Nann Huffman is the Republican nominee for Harris County District Attorney. She has been raising the alarm about the failure of Kim Ogg to keep Harris County citizens safe. Martin Harry is the Republican nominee in Travis County for District Attorney running against Soros-backed Jose Garza. There are no third party nominees in those races.
There is another chilling aspect to the capture of Texas District Attorney by radicals not committed to rule of law. Mobs that were apparently well funded and organized launched a coordinated hijacking of the George Floyd protests in Texas cities on May 30, 2020 and thereafter. (Pictured is a mob destroying property on the grounds of the Texas Capitol taken from Breitbart publication of picture on Twitter.)
Many pictures and stories of pre-positioned brick caches on the streets of Texas cities were reported on May 30. An assault on the Alamo was thwarted by private citizens at the Alamo that day and night. Yet few prosecutions have occurred in the big counties where the violence occurred.
In Harris County, almost 800 cases from those protests were dropped by District Attorney Ogg. She claims that those cases were primarily for blocking streets and “trespass,” and not worthy of law enforcement resources.
Allegations of Soros funding of Antifa are bubbling. If true, we likely are seeing Soros-funded rioters not being prosecuted by Soros-funded District Attorneys in Texas. What is wrong with this picture?
If you want to remove a globalist billionaire’s influence over Harris and Travis County, tell everyone you know in those counties to vote for Republican District Attorney nominees Mary Nann Huffman and Martin Harry, respectively.
