Blind In San Francisco

There is a special kind of blindness that liberals exhibit. Or maybe it's a cognitive disconnect between what they say and do on one day and what they say and do on the next. Whatever the cause, it's maddening to witness it.

Take the death of Kate Steinle, a beautiful, 31 yr. old San Francisco woman who was murdered by an illegal alien, a Mexican, Francisco Lopez. Lopez, a known narcotics trafficker with a half dozen arrests, was released by San Francisco Sheriff Ross Mirkarimi who refused to honor a request from ICE authorities to detain him. Ms. Steinle's Father is suing San Francisco and the federal government for their willful acts leading to the death of his daughter. On December 2nd, the feds and the City of San Francisco asked Mr. Steinle to drop the lawsuit.
SAN FRANCISCO (KRON) — The U.S. government and the City of San Francisco are asking Kate Steinle’s family to dismiss the wrongful death lawsuit in a hearing on Friday.

Kate Steinle was shot and killed in July of 2015 on Pier 14 along San Francisco’s waterfront. Francisco Lopez-Sanchez, an undocumented immigrant, has been charged in the murder.

Lopez-Sanchez was released from the San Francisco City Jail in Apil.

The family of Kate Steinle filed the federal lawsuit in May of 2016 against former San Francisco sheriff Ross Mirkarimi, Immigration and Custom’s Enforcement, and the Bureau of Land Management.

The lawsuit seeks to hold the Bureau of Land Management, ICE, and former Sheriff Ross Mirkarimi accountable for providing “the means and opportunity for a repeat drug felon to secure a gun and kill Kate,” according to the complaint.
Lopez was freed on these grounds:
Lopez-Sanchez has five felony convictions for entering the United States illegally and was released from federal prison earlier this year and sent to San Francisco because of a 20-year-old warrant in a minor marijuana case. Federal immigration authorities were not alerted when his charges were dropped, and Lopez-Sanchez was freed to the streets under San Francisco “sanctuary city” law that limits turning over illegal aliens for deportation.

Now just the day before asking for relief from this lawsuit, the City of San Francisco passed a resolution, a "middle finger" to President-elect Trump, stating the following:
HEREAS, On November 8, 2016, Donald Trump was elected to become the 45th President of the United States; now, therefore, be it

RESOLVED, That no matter the threats made by President-elect Trump, San Francisco will remain a Sanctuary City. We will not turn our back on the men and women from other countries who help make this city great, and who represent over one third of our population. This is the Golden Gate-we build bridges, not walls; and, be it

FURTHER RESOLVED, That we will never back down on women’s rights, whether in healthcare, the workplace, or any other area threatened by a man who treats women as obstacles to be demeaned or objects to be assaulted. And just as important, we will ensure our young girls grow up with role models who show them they can be or do anything; and,
So on Thursday the City comes out with an in-your-face pledge to a) break the law and b) protect women and the VERY NEXT DAY asks the family of a murder victim who was killed because they broke the law - to drop the law suit seeking to hold them accountable for their reckless actions. It sounds like the City by the Bay figures it is a woman's right to be killed in front of her family - sounds very Sharia-ish, doesn't it?

Forgive me, but I am praying to Saint Andreas to give that fault line a little nudge. Just a little one.

More here and here.

WAIT UNTIL I'M GONE - before you pray for a nudge. It's a long fault line and reaches all the way down south. But I'm with you. If SF made the plunge into the Pacific, I'd shed no tears.

Oops, LL - sorry.

LL's moving out as fast as he can, so the Big One can hit California pretty soon. Maybe a local disaster? Perhaps we can persuade the Japanese to lend us Godzilla for a weekend's devastation of San Fransisco. By the way, how did a mission city, named after a saint, become the nation's despotic capital.

I like the Godzilla solution. It has panache.

Hold my feet to the fire, and unless Trump can Really accomplish some stuff (deport all the moslem vermin), it's gonna be up to us, just like it was up to the The mafia in Sicily.

Bring it on.

The fault lies not in the earth but in the hearts of mankind.
