    The news hit the headlines when it happened in San Francisco, back in 2015. Kate Steinle, 32, was shot to death as she walked along the waterfront on July 4, with her father and a family friend. The cold-bloodedness of the senseless crime shook the city and the nation as well. The police quickly had a suspect and, in fact, the gun used in the crime. That man is Jose Inez Garcia Zarate. At that time, he was in this country illegally and had already been deported five times, but continued to return. At the time of the shooting, he...

    The U.S. government can’t be held liable for the death of Kate Steinle on a San Francisco pier based on a federal ranger’s negligent storage of a gun that was stolen and used to shoot her, a Ninth Circuit panel ruled Tuesday.Steinle was killed by a bullet that ricocheted off a concrete walkway and struck her in the back on Pier 14 in San Francisco on July 1, 2015. . . . In arguments before a three-judge Ninth Circuit panel last month, a lawyer for Steinle’s parents argued U.S. Bureau of Land Management (BLM) ranger John Woychowski had a duty...
  • McConnell Makes Big Promises, But The Filibuster Was Never The Real Reason He Ignored Conservatives (Don't All Politicians Make Promises, That They Have No Intentions To Keep?

    When McConnell cares about something — actually cares about it — we see how quickly his tune changes.Defund sanctuary cities. Defund Planned Parenthood. Build the wall. These are just some of things Senate Minority Leader Mitch McConnell promises to do when he takes back control of the Senate — that is, if Democrats dare to strike down the filibuster. It’s a great to-do list, the kind of things the conservative base elects Republicans every few years to do. When President Donald Trump took office in 2017 and the GOP controlled both the House of Representatives and the U.S. Senate, though,...

    Following the overturned state firearm conviction of illegal immigrant Jose Inez Garcia-Zarate, U.S. Attorney David Anderson said Wednesday the federal government plans to proceed with federal gun charges in the case of Kate Steinle, during an interview on "Fox & Friends." Zarate, who was previously deported five times, was charged by the state of California with the murder of Steinle in 2015 and was acquitted on charges of first-degree murder, second-degree murder, involuntary manslaughter, and assault with a semi-automatic weapon. He was, however, convicted of felony possession of a firearm, and has maintained the stolen gun he used had discharged...

    The only conviction against a man accused of killing Kate Steinle in 2015 was overturned in the 1st District Court of Appeals in San Francisco on Friday. Jose Inez Garcia-Zarate was accused of shooting Steinle while she was walking with her father and friend on the San Francisco waterfront. Garcia-Zarate, a Mexican national, was in the U.S. illegally at the time of the shooting. He had previously been deported five times, and it was not known when he reentered the country. Steinle was 32 at the time of her death. Garcia-Zarate maintained that the shooting was accidental and that he...

    A California state appeals court Friday overturned the lone conviction against an undocumented immigrant who shot and killed Kate Steinle on the San Francisco waterfront in 2015, a case which drew national attention and became a flashpoint in the debate over illegal immigration. Jose Inez Garcia-Zarate, who was in the U.S. illegally had been deported to his native Mexico five times, was acquitted in November 2017 of first and second-degree murder, involuntary manslaughter, and assault with a semi-automatic weapon. He was convicted of one count of being a felon in possession of a firearm. On Friday, the 1st District Court...

    Another setback has been delivered to the parents of Kate Steinle as they continue to seek justice over the murder of their child.

A district court rejected the claim in 2017 and the plaintiffs appealed. Yesterday, the Ninth Circuit upheld the dismissal. (Washington Examiner) The 9th Circuit Court of Appeals upheld a district courtÂ’s dismissal of the familyÂ’s suit on Monday, according...

    A federal appeals court ruled Monday the parents of Kate Steinle, who was shot and killed by an illegal immigrant in 2015, cannot sue San Francisco for the "sancutary city’s" failure to tell immigration officials about the shooter’s release. Steinle’s parents alleged San Francisco and the city’s former sheriff shared the blamed for their daughter’s death because officials did not notify Immigration and Customs Enforcement when Jose Ines Garcia Zarate got out of jail.

    The illegal alien let off the hook for the murder of San Francisco resident Kate Steinle in 2015 now wants additional leniency: He wants his gun possession charge overturned because, well, it’s just not fair. You may recall there was no small amount of outrage when jurors in the case of Jose Ines Garcia Zarate, who stood accused of shooting and killing Steinle, failed to convict him even of manslaughter charges but, because they are such gun haters in California, decided instead to convict him of illegally possessing a firearm. The CBS station in San Francisco called the verdict “shocking.”...

This year’s short list of contenders include President Trump, Russian President Vladimir Putin, special counsel Robert Mueller, Christine Blasey Ford, Jamal Khashoggi, South Korean President Moon Jae-in, Meghan Markle, March For Our Lives gun reform activists (Hogg boy), and "Black Panther" screenwriter and director Ryan Coogler - but all the smart money is on the contender designated as  “families separated at the border” (by the evil American President).I guess I could...

    Open border advocates say that immigrants come here to do jobs Americans won’t do. Well, excuse me, but we have Americans all too willing to kill their brethren. Murder is a job American criminals are quite willing to do and to those who say immigrants commit crime at a lower rate than American citizens, I say that all that proves is that we have enough criminals -- we don’t need to import more.

    Who is the sanctuary city for? San Francisco provided no shelter or sanctuary for Orlando Vilchez Lazo's victims. But it was certainly happy to provide sanctuary for the ride share rapist while he committed his crimes, U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement on Monday blasted San Francisco over its sanctuary policy that “shields criminal aliens who prey on the community” by pointing to an illegal immigrant charged in connection to the rapes of four women, The San Francisco Chronicle reported. He reportedly worked for Lyft at the time, but the company told the paper that there is no indication that the...
  • Let’s Be Honest: Mexico Is A Bad Neighbor

    07/09/2018 6:09:08 AM PDT · by Liberty7732 · 39 replies
    This is not a shot at Mexicans. They are humans in the exact same way as Americans, Nigerians, Italians, Indonesians and every other people group. In the Christian view, they are made in the image of God. In the American FoundersÂ’ view, they like all men are created with inalienable rights granted by God. But this is a shot at the Mexican government and, to a degree, the Mexican culture. And despite virtually every media story out there fretting and warning about America being a bad neighbor because of TrumpÂ’s policies, the actual evidence that Mexico is the bad actor...
