Dallas D.A. Announces Get Out Of Jail Free Card For Theft Up To $750

Published

Dallas County District Attorney John Creuzot plans to no longer prosecute petty crimes.

Under the guise of trying to protect minorities, Creuzot wants the DA’s office to focus more on “serious crimes” in Dallas.

The Dallas Morning News Editorial Board pushed back against Creuzot’s plan. It claimed that it “has the potential to send the wrong message about our tolerance for any crime in this county.”

The Editorial Board continued,  saying that Creuzot’s plan “may go too far in the other direction, particularly at a time when residents across this region are worried about increased crime in their neighborhoods, from package theft to car break-ins.”

Creuzot declared that he will no longer prosecute theft of personal items worth less than $750 unless there was financial gain made from the theft.

The Board reminded Creuzot that “most poor people in this city are law-abiding citizens.” On top of that, “petty criminals escalate their activities to more serious offenses when enforcement is slack on more minor crimes.”

However, the Dallas Morning News was not alone in its criticism of Creuzot.

Governor Greg Abbott came out swinging stating that Creuzot’s policy “stokes crime by refusing to prosecute theft of personal items worth less than $750.”

Abbott recognizes the slippery slope, “If someone is hungry they can just steal some food. If cold, steal a coat. Where does it end? It’s wealth redistribution by theft. ”

Texas is at an interesting juncture in its politics.

Since the Beto O’Rourke campaign, urban centers have shifted more to the Left, as witnessed with Dallas County voters giving O’Rourke 66% of the vote. As a result, they are embracing policies such as lax law enforcement and economic redistributionism.

Some of this political culture is spilling over to suburban districts, where supposedly conservative politicians flinch at the proposition of policies like Constitutional Carry. With growing demographic shifts that favor more progressive policies, Texas could easily fall down the road of Florida, a swing state that could be susceptible to certain progressive policies such as gun control.

If Republicans want to keep their hold of Texas, they will have to pass good policies. If not, what we’re now seeing in Dallas County will become the norm.

Flashback: Ann Coulter Warns Steve Bannon about Donald Trump’s Hires During 2016

Coulter tells it like it is.

Earlier this week, former White House adviser Steve Bannon reached out to President Donald Trump, in an apparent move to reconcile with the president. Bannon was one of the more renowned advisors in the Trump administration who received a lot of attention for his unconventional views. The former White House adviser is likely looking for Trump to pardon him for several federal criminal charges that he is currently facing.

Bannon was one of the strongest contrarian voices on the right who questioned traditional conservative dogma on free trade and immigration. His rise to prominence represented a raw, populist anger that was building within the Republican Party base. Bannon ended up leaving the Trump administration after the infamous Charlottesville rally. This left a massive void for populist voices within the Trump brain trust, which was never adequately filled with populist figures.

Most of the strong populist voices during the Trump era came from the outside. Conservative commentator Ann Coulter has been one of the leading figures trying to steer populist discourse in America.Although a harsh critic, Coulter did her best to hold President Trump accountable and watch his every move, especially personnel decisions that did not align with his America first vision. To the average pro-Trump individual, Coulter’s criticism may come off as abrasive, but it was and still is  necessary to have a viable nationalist movement.

As a reminder to her followers about how she knew that there were subversive elements in the Trump administration who wanted to gut the president’s America First agenda and pursue more traditional Republican policies, she tweeted about email correspondence she had with Bannon dating back to December 2, 2016. In light of the rapprochement between Bannon and Trump, Coulter called attention to how she warned the former White House adviser about some of the latter’s questionable staffing decisions during the early stages of his presidency.

Coulter tweeted, “No, actually, I knew Trump was betraying us pretty early on – and that it would cost him re-election. My December 2, 2016 email to Steve Bannon:”

In an email sent on December 2, 2016 with a subject line titled “ghost of christmas future”, Coulter warned then-White House adviser Bannon about some of Trump’s hiring decisions.

She first noted that “the fact that Trump is even CONSIDERING rep. Mccaul (rubio in the house) for homeland — and is NOT considering kobach— tells me we’re not getting any major deportations, no removal of refugees, no e-verify, no end to end anchor babies… and trump will be dead.

also, “mad dog” isn’t going to build a wall.”

She was referring to Texas Congressman Michael McCaul, a known mass migration booster and a potential nominee for the head of the Department of Homeland Security. United States Marine Corps General James Matthis would be Trump’s first Secretary of Defense, who ended up turning out to be a Deep State hack. On the other hand, Kris Kobach is a nationally recognized immigration hawk, who gained fame for implementing some of the stiffest voter ID standards in the nation during his time as Secretary of State.

The Trump administration was successful in implementing several administrative changes that limited immigration and also did not get involved in any nation-building engagements like previous administrations.

Nevertheless, Coulter’s incisive suggestions still have use for future Republican administrations. The new GOP should follow Coulter’s pro-migration restriction suggestions if it wants to not only remain politically relevant, but also protect the integrity of America’s political system.
