Why was San Francisco reformist District Attorney Chesa Boudin recalled? Who was really behind it? What does it mean for the future of the reformist DA movement? And what's next for Chesa? We ask Chesa himself. District Attorney Chesa Boudin was sworn in as San Francisco District Attorney in January 2020 to implement urgently needed reforms to our criminal justice system. Chesa personally understands the impact of incarceration; both of his parents were incarcerated throughout his childhood. Despite tremendous obstacles, Chesa graduated from top schools, became a lawyer, and dedicated his career to public service. Chesa's personal experience with parental incarceration inspired him to dedicate his career to making our country safer and more just by working to reform our criminal justice system. Chesa is a Rhodes Scholar who graduated from Yale Law School. After obtaining his law degree, he worked as a law clerk to the Honorable M. Margaret McKeown of the United States Court of Appeals for the Ninth Circuit, and later for the Honorable Charles Breyer of the United States District Court for the Northern District of California. As an attorney, Chesa has litigated more than 300 felony cases including murder, attempted murders, shootings, stabbings, home break-ins, drug sales, kidnappings, and auto burglaries. Under Chesa's leadership, the San Francisco District Attorney's Office has increased its prosecution rates; expanded victim services; and added new prosecution units, all while making investments to reduce recidivism and redirect towards education and employment. Chesa believes we must hold accountable those who violate the law; and he also recognizes that we are all safer when we can and address the root causes of crime to prevent crime before it happens. District Attorney Boudin's innovative work has focused on three main areas: 1) centering and increasing support for crime victims and survivors; 2) ensuring equal justice under the law; 3) developing new programs and reforms to ensure a more fair and just criminal legal system. Chesa, his wife, and their newborn son live in the Sunset District of San Francisco.

As a policy issue, crime, like inflation and immigration, has consistently been a political vulnerability for Joe Biden and the Democrats. Republicans have seized on the national spike in murders — almost 30% in 2020, when, um, Trump was president —  the “defund the police” movement, and criminal justice reform policies pursued by unpopular progressive prosecutors who have faced a backlash even from liberals, such as San Francisco's Chesa Boudin, who was recalled, and Los Angeles's George Gascón, who recently dodged a similar effort. For more than a year, Biden has been on the defensive on these issues, tacking to the middle and adjusting his language. Now, suddenly, White House aides tell Playbook they believe Biden can play offense.  Today in Wilkes-Barre, Pa., Biden will not just defend his record and spotlight the recent bipartisan gun safety package he signed into law, he'll attack the GOP as soft on crime — for its record on guns, its defense of Jan. 6 criminals, and, most interestingly, its recent response to the FBI search of Mar-a-Lago.  Kara Tabor is an audio producer for POLITICO Audio.

This Week, Hunter spoke with the awesome and powerful, Brendon Woods. As Chief Public Defender in Alameda County, Brendon is one of the loudest and strongest advocates for criminal justice reform in the entire country. On this episode, Brendon and Hunter discuss how Brendon was able to cultivate the culture both in and out of his office that enabled wide sweeping success at crafting meaningful reforms. From his work in the state house to his work in the Oakland community, Brendon has seen success after success because of his ability to show the local community the essential role that Public Defense places in community health. From his voter registration program to his high school, his team has helped to demonstrate for all the extent to what Public Defense could be.

Los Angeles District Attorney George Gascon narrowly avoidedhaving to face a recall, as the petition drive to drum him out of office fell short. LA will not go through what San Francisco just did, with DAChesa Boudin recalled from office. The campaign to recall Gascon, who of course was both police chiefand District Attorney in San Francisco before he moved to Los Angeles to runfor DA there, was similar to the one that removed Boudin from office, but Gasconlearned from some of Boudin's campaign mistakes, and the people behind thepetition drive in LA just couldn't gather quite enough valid signatures before thedeadline. Gascon gets to finish his term, and will be up for re-election in 2024. Meanwhile, while Chesa Boudin has decided not to run for his old job in thisfall's special election to finish out the rest of his term, he is already makingmoves that have some people wondering if he plans to try again when the DA jobcomes up again in the next regularly scheduled election next year in 2023.

This is the Steve Gruber show— here to give a cold hard slap of reality—and make sure you are awake to everything that's happening— and that's a lot—   Here are three big things you need to know right now— ONE— Iranians plotting to kill American officials—and what do we do—well Joe Biden jetted off to a week's long vacation on an opulent island off the coast of South Carolina— TWO— If you think its tough now getting loans at a reasonable rate—wait until next year—when the Fed will have doubled the prime rate to 4% or more— THREE— Merrick Garland is among the most partisan people to ever work in American Government—I know that because he was selected by former President Barack Obama to be a member of the United States Supreme Court—and President Obama brought to us—some of the most radical and hard core far-left people to ever surface in American Government—and therefore—I do not believe or trust anything this guy Garland has to say—   Obama tried to shove him down our throats as part of the Transformation of America—we didn't need that kind of radical ideology then and we don't need it now—Merrick Garland and his ilk are truly a menace to America—and to free people everywhere—because he doesn't believe in the equal application of the law—or in the basic tenants of the United  States Constitution from what I can tell—   Merrick Garland was then—and is today—a dangerous anti-American radical that adheres only to the ideology of globalist mentalities—and should go the way of Chesa Boudin—and other radical activists in similar positions—   On Thursday Garland who also, clearly had a very successful charisma bypass operation many years ago—stood in front of the camera—and coldly reading a prepared statement from the teleprompter—declared that he had personally approved of the search warrant to raid the home of a former President—to do what no Department of Justice or Attorney General had ever done—not ever—not even during dire times in American history—   He approved of the raid, on the home of a former President in the the desperate hope they could find something—anything—to manufacture a case for Donald Trump to be blocked from running for President again— he approved a warrant to go fishing for a smoking gun—or anything they and their dishonest media allies could pass off as a smoking gun—no matter how far-fetched it was—   Garland with all the sparkling personality of a wet towel—regurgitated the words on the screens in front of him—and was about as convincing as Joe Biden saying inflation is really at ZERO and America is doing great— yeah—both flat emotionless speeches fell on deaf ears—because nobody is buying this BS—   Garland—who was foisted upon us first by Obama—and thankfully blocked by Moscow Mitch from ever getting a seat on the Supreme Court—gave some halfhearted defense of the raid—and admitted that he personally approved of it— based on what—we are still sorting out—   Lets be honest ok,   These are people that are motivated by pure radical political ideologies—these are the ones claiming to moral high-ground while labeling ordinary parents as domestic terrorists—just for wanting to be involved in their kids educations and standing up against local school boards—people that declare police are inherently racist as are all Trump supporters and white people generally— because they have the audacity to believe the US Constitution is a valid and remarkable document—   These are people—Merrick Garland and company—that cheerlead for open borders and decry anyone opposed to the self-destructive idea—again calling them racist terrorists— if they don't fall in line—   So excuse me—for calling Merrick Garland for what he is—a radical—anti- American activist—with a hell of a lot of power but very little honesty in his bones—

With every day that passes, we are learning more and more about the blatant corruption that has overtaken the San Francisco DA's office. And what's wild here, is that Democrats can't blame Republicans for this corruption, because it's conservative Democrats, from top to bottom, running the whole thing. We just learned that the new DA, Brooke Jenkins, was literally paid hundreds of thousands of dollars to be the face of the effort to recall Chesa Boudin, but presented herself to the public as an unpaid volunteer. Once she then took the office that she paid to undermine, she then immediately began firing every prosecutor and staffer that had anything to do with prosecuting police or overseeing wrongful convictions and replacing them with people that have a long history of actually protecting the police. Let me unpack and explain it all.

In the wake of the Supreme Court striking down Roe v. Wade and returning the issue of abortion to the American people and their local elected representatives, a gaggle of leftist district attorneys said they won't enforce laws enacted to protect the unborn.Some of those rogue district attorneys are from pro-life states and might attempt to stymie efforts by state legislatures to protect life.Cully Stimson, a senior legal fellow at The Heritage Foundation, is not surprised, and says that those district attorneys have already refused to enforce other laws, against violence and petty crime, among other things. (The Daily Signal is the news outlet of The Heritage Foundation.)The tactic of not enforcing some of the laws that their state legislatures pass and their governors sign "is not a new play for them," says Stimson. "So, it's not surprising that they're virtue signaling and trying to [capitalize] on the anti-Dobbs hysteria on the left and hold themselves out as defenders of freedom and all the rest of it." (The Supreme Court's June 24 ruling in Dobbs v. Jackson Women's Health Organization overturned Roe, the 1973 ruling that legalized abortion nationwide.)Worse, there's no way to get the anti-abortion laws enforced if the rogue district attorneys decide they won't cooperate."Remember, the prosecutor—not the police officer, not the mayor, not the governor—is the gatekeeper to the criminal justice system," explains Stimson. "So, police can arrest people for committing crimes that are on the books, but if the DA says, 'Sorry, Officer Schmuckatelli, we're not going to bring that case and file it in court.' That's the end of the line."Thankfully, there's a possible solution. As we've seen even in liberal San Francisco, which recently recalled its leftist prosecutor, Chesa Boudin, the people can take matters into their own hands and recall district attorneys who won't do their jobs."Find out from your DA whether they believe in reimagining prosecution and not asking for bail even for repeat criminals, and not fully enforcing the law," recommends Stimson. "Because if they are following [leftist billionaire George Soros'] bought-and-paid-for playbook or inspirational playbook, or the playbook from the Fair and Just Prosecution ... then you're going to know that you're going to have a crime problem in your city."Stimson joins the show to discuss the implications of district attorneys refusing to prosecute abortion-related crimes, and what Americans can do to hold them accountable.

Alex Vitale is one of the country's foremost experts on policing and criminal punishment. He is a professor of Sociology at Brooklyn College and the CUNY Graduate Center, where he coordinates the Policing and Social Justice Project. His book The End of Policing is a comprehensive critique of U.S. police and argues that nearly everything useful done by police can be done better by other institutions. (The book was published in 2017 but recently got an unexpected boost from U.S. senator Ted Cruz.) Prof. Vitale joined to discuss how the recent shooting in Uvalde (and the disastrous police response) and the successful recall of San Francisco's "progressive prosecutor," Chesa Boudin, should inform our thinking about police and punishment. We discuss: Why Ted Cruz thought of The End of Policing as "critical race theory"How the Uvalde shooting shows why policing can't be relied on to protect students from violenceWhy criticizing policing as an institution actually shows that individual police themselves are not the problem, because they are being asked to solve problems that the tools of police are inadequate to solveHow this was also evident in the San Francisco prosecution conflict: reformer Chesa Boudin was held responsible for problems that a prosecutor's office cannot solve (a problem that Prof. Vitale thinks shows the limits of the progressive prosecutor strategy on its own)How district attorney Larry Krasner in Philadelphia, another public defender pursuing a reformist mission, avoided being ousted like BoudinWhy we need to stop talking about stopping crime as if the question is "more policing" or "less policing," instead of talking about how to replace policingWhy Matthew Yglesias' criticism of The End of Policing is silly and wrongHow those of us committed to opposing the existing criminal punishment system can show that we actually care more about preventing violent crime than those pushing for more policingThe Scientific American article on Denver's Support Team Assistance Response (STAR) program is here: "Sending Health Care Workers instead of Cops Can Reduce Crime." The terrible Matthew Yglesias review of The End of Policing that Prof. Vitale responds to is here, and the article on it in Current Affairs by Alec Karakatsanis is here.

Then, Robert Kuttner joins as he and Emma dive right into what hyper globalization is, and why this system, based on a complete absence of regulation of commerce, trade, and production across borders, was so primed to fail (hint: it had to do with its complete refusal to regulate capitalism), collapsing as soon as China arrived in the WTO and refused to comply, and the COVID pandemic shut down supply lines worldwide. Next, Kuttner walks through the history of hyper globalization, with Clinton's neoliberal regimes of the 90s starting a move to international trade agreements that sought to undercut foreign countries' ability to regulate capitalism and gave US Banks footholds abroad, before he and Emma jump back to the 1940s, looking at the conceptual systems that preluded it, focusing on the Bretton Woods system of Keynesian economics that emphasized what was essentially an international new deal, built on the spine of an International Monetary Fund to advance funding to struggling economies, a World Bank for public investment in development, and an International Trade Organization that allows countries to enforce labor rights in international trade. Robert Kuttner then contrasts Keynes' dream with the eventual World Trade Organization as a purified right-wing capitalist version of his vision, abusing concepts of sovereignty, property rights, and intellectual property to bolster Western corporations and keep down nations that they see as only necessary for extraction. They wrap up the interview by touching on the role of Biden (and Trump!) in reversing this global trend, and discuss what a new deal for the global south would look like, and how we can fight for it. Then, Emma is joined by David Adler as he situates Gustavo Petro's victory as the first progressive administration to come to power in Colombia, coming to power in a wholesale rejection of the far-right, neo-imperial military alliance that defined the Uribismo ideology that defined Iván Duque Márquez's administration and those that came before him (since, unsurprisingly, the Uribe administration). They wrap up their discussion with a conversation on the international reactions from both the far-right and the progressive left, the importance of the recent success of leftist candidates in Latin America, and the corruption and lies that fuel the US' relationship in the region. And in the Fun Half: Emma discusses the Chesa Boudin recall with Nathaniel from Berkeley, and Joe Rogan hosts a military-response training specialist to discuss why the police in Uvalde needed more military-response training (which they already had) to protect their egos. Sean from Washington asks Emma about one of the few sports she's not well-versed in, Larry Kudlow asks Pence if he's EVER seen a president lie like this, and Emma and the crew dive into the UK Rail Strike.

A widespread view that cities have become less safe in recent months is transforming local politics. Eric Adams became Mayor of New York City on a tough-on-crime platform. Anxiety about public safety has also played a significant role in the ongoing Los Angeles mayoral race. In San Francisco, Chesa Boudin—a reform-minded district attorney—was recalled by voters by a significant margin last week. Boudin had instituted a number of progressive reforms, from liberalizing bail policies to reducing jail populations through diversion programs. But those changes were buried by the perception that the city had descended into a state of chaos. His recall has been cast as a referendum on crime and on the public's attitudes toward progressive criminal-justice policies. What were the voters in San Francisco blaming on Boudin? The New Yorker staff writer Benjamin Wallace-Wells recently wrote about Boudin's recall. He speaks with the New Yorker senior editor Tyler Foggatt.

Emma hosts Alex Sammon, staff writer at the American Prospect, to discuss his recent article "The RNC's Ground Game of Inches." Then, Emma is joined by Joe Eskenazi, editor and columnist at Mission Local, to discuss San Francisco District Attorney Chesa Boudin's recall last night. First, Emma covers the continued kabuki theater around gun control as Schumer now shifts to a smaller deal, Matthew McConaughey speaking on the Uvalde tragedy before staging a photo op with Henry Cuellar, and touch on the recall of Chesa Boudin. Then, she's joined by Alex Sammon as they dive into his coverage of the RNC's mass investment in community centers as they begin to gun for very specific impoverished communities, first discussing the complete runaround that Sammon saw as organizers and facilitators refused to return calls or discuss the centers, forcing him to attend in person. This gave him an intimate view of these centers, which have been cropping up across the US since the GOP's realization that they actually are not THAT far behind in polling with communities of color, and that just bringing around certain communities in certain states can have massive dividends, as they shift to a grassroots movement that is reminiscent of left-wing organizing that focuses on meeting community needs. Sammon then dives specifically into his experiences at the community center in Robeson, North Carolina, a historically blue district in a supposedly blue state, and how the GOP took advantage of growing racial tensions between Native and Black populations alongside an economic collapse in the wake of the NAFTA replacement, as he explores the complete swap between organizing tactics of the GOP and Democrats, as the former shifts to a ground game, with these community centers offering daily programming with a clear association to the right, whereas democrats have chosen to go after airplay in districts where myriad people have no internet access. They wrap up their discussion by touching on what this says about the complete failures of Democratic messaging under Biden. Next, Emma is joined by Joe Eskenazi in reaction to the successful recall of Chesa Boudin, San Francisco's reform-focused DA, and the complete lack of surprise around the result. Next, he looks to flesh out the dynamics that were working behind the scenes, with the wealthier enclaves of the city, alongside real estate investment and a big SF PAC, and why, no matter how important it is, following the money is not a tangible electoral tactic, just as confronting emotions with statistics (e.g. no, SF does NOT have a crime wave) is unsuccessful when the wealthy constituency believes to the heart in the antisocial behavior of the poorer communities. They wrap up the interview by diving deeper into Boudin's relationship (or lack thereof) with the SFPD, walking through the obvious refusal to work (whether a work stoppage, underperformance, or both) for his office, why this is so common in relationships between Police forces and their governing officials,  how Mayor London Breed took advantage of this and used Boudin as her scapegoat, and what the conversation around San Franciscan politics should look like moving forwards. And in the Fun Half: Emma takes a very quick call with Justin from Ohio on why in the world Democrats try to appeal to the need for strong opponents, the absurdity (and obvious homophobia) of going from “parents' rights” to making it illegal for a parent to bring a child to a drag show, and Steve Scalise discusses the total lack of regulation around planes (must've never flown in one). Chris Coons comes to Joe Biden's defense for bolstering his allyship with MBS, Charlie from NJ discusses the “what if it was YOUR [daughter, child, wife, sister, Black friend]” talking point making its way into the gun control debate, and Tulsi Gabbard takes on the most pressing issues in American politics: Hunter Biden's sex scandals and her social media following.

Conservative Californian's continue to abuse the recall system when they can't win in the general elections. It's a waste of time and money.

Sam and Emma host Matt Ford, staff writer for the New Republic, to discuss the most important cases coming before the Supreme Court this month. Then Sam and Emma are joined by Akela Lacy, politics reporter at the Intercept, to discuss her recent piece "What's Stopping Chesa Boudin?" ahead of his recall election. Emma and Sam first cover the indictment of 5 Proud Boys on the eve of the nationally televised 1/6 hearings, and John Cornyn finally comes to his senses on gun control and speaks out against easy access to… Elementary Schools. Matt Ford then joins as they walk through the massive consequences that we must prepare for regarding this conservative SCOTUS and their upcoming decisions. Matt begins by assessing the discord behind the scenes of the Court right now, from a difficulty in finding cohesion in rulings and reports of lacking amicability, to the news of the leak and the friction that has caused, before diving deeper into internal reactions to the leak, including the belief that it was a liberal-left attack on the institution's integrity, and what role the justices could've played in the matter. Next, they cover the matter of what the leak covered, diving into Dobbs v. Jackson Women's Health Organization and the 15-week cut off as an effective reversal of Roe v. Wade, as well as looking at the greater implications of undermining 4A privacy rights, from an overturn of Obergerfell to a return to sodomy laws. Matt, Sam, and Emma also cover the upcoming New York State Rifle & Pistol Association v. Bruen as the first 2A case since 2010, and look to West Virginia v. EPA as the next step in the conservative road to demolishing the administrative state. Then, Akela Lacy joins as she situates the recall attempt against Chesa Boudin as one of many recalls targeting reform-minded DAs, regardless of popularity or success, and a product of an effort that started before Boudin even effectively took office, with massive amounts of money flowing in from countless angles, including the former Chair of the San Francisco DNC  working as a paid “volunteer,” and mass investment from police unions and realty associations. Next, they cover the massive project that this recall effort has entailed, including the purchasing of the website days before Boudin took office and the creation of an “outlet” (it's just a substack) on the talking points, before unpacking the lies and misinformation that fuels the establishment attacks, and wrapping up with a discussion on the relationship between Boudin and the San Francisco police. And in the Fun Half: Sam and Emma watch Arnulfo Reyes' heartbreaking recount of his class' experience in the shooting at Robb Elementary, Sam from St. Paul dives into Minnesota infrastructure and redlining, John from San Antonio runs through upcoming CA primaries, and Grant Stinchfield and Stephen Crowder do their best ahistorical spin on the Holocaust. Charles from TN discusses owning a Tesla and having people try to talk to him about Musk, Kowalski from Nebraska celebrates international Antifa victory day (D-Day) and unpacks the Ukrainian wheat harvest, Kyle Rittenhouse spreads misinformation about himself, presumably, so someone will actually hold him to account, and Justin from Cincinnati discusses transphobia and Ohio, plus, your calls and IMs!

A Reckoning for Progressive Prosecutors

After a string of mass shootings over the weekend in numerous urban areas of the country, Americans are asking what has caused the ongoing 2 year surge in violent crime? The answer is obvious: defunding the police madness and progressive prosecutors- all ideas coming from the Democrat side. Chesa Boudin in San Francisco, Larry Krasner in Philadelphia, and many other prosecutors around the country have allowed anarchy and violence to surge in the name of "fairness." When Democrats prioritize “social justice” over criminal justice, thousands of innocent people are murdered and assaulted from the increase in crime. Cities decay as the law-abiding flee. Libs don't care. They think we all deserve it. It's our society's collective punishment. But maybe, finally.. the tide is turning, and enough voters are waking up.  See omnystudio.com/listener for privacy information.
