Absurd Justice

When Mark Twain began his writing career as a newspaper reporter in Virginia City, Nevada, he made a humorous observation that the justice system was about to collapse for the lack of stupid jurors. Jury selection then and now is a process where the prosecutor and defense attorneys’ goal is to select jurors who are incapable of sorting the facts to ensure for justice, contrary to the judicial systems purpose. Mark Twain can rest in peace, as the San Francisco jury found Jose Ines Garcia Zarate, a Mexican illegal was not guilty of murdering Kate Steinle.

This murder trial was extremely simple as Mr. Zarate was unlawfully in possession of a firearm and it fired while in his hands and killed Ms. Steinle. Evidence was presented that the fatal bullet had ricocheted and Jose had no control of the bullets path of travel. This distracting theory had no validity as Jose is a felon, and as such, it is illegal to be in possession of a firearm.  An old saying that “when the shit hits the fan, it is unevenly distributed” certainly applies. The background of this fatal occurrence has many circumstances that led to Ms. Steinle’s death. To start, the liberal judge who wrongfully excluded the facts about Jose being deported from the USA five times is ridiculous.  Further, he was facing his sixth deportation, for illegal reentry to the USA.  As San Francisco is a sanctuary city, Mr. Zarate was released from city jail onto the streets of San Francisco and not handed over to the federal authorities for a previous charge of selling marijuana.  Our border should not be a sieve that allows criminals to walk through and reenter the USA.

This slaying will be a flash point to secure the border with an impenetrable wall and defunding sanctuary cities. Most importantly, come November 2018, voters will be sick and tired of this legal obstruction and liberal politicians up for re-election will not have voter support.  President Trump will win the election in 2020 if he runs again because he supports law and order and is against absurd justice.

U.S. Attorney General, Jeff Sessions is cleaning up his department and the FBI to stop the practice of absurd justice. Our nations justice system has become part of the swamp. We have irresponsible liberal federal judges with lifetime appointments who write absurd decisions including support of sanctuary cities, counties and states.  These judges are part of the swamp and need to be removed from the bench when they write decisions that ensure for lawlessness.  It is a myth that sanctuary is needed, as some illegal immigrants may be apprehended.  Immigrants who have no proof of citizenship and who enter the U.S. unlawfully need to be identified as felons. The impact of illegal aliens is to lower the cost of labor, which in turn reduces the opportunity for U.S. citizens to earn a living wage. Flooding the workforce with illegal, cheap labor infringes on the rights of every citizen.  Absurd law that allows for open borders has a great collateral hazard as it floods our entire country with illegal drugs and people.

Absurd laws created by stupid liberal legislators and legalized by stupid judges are creating chaos that gives our country a third-world economy. To make our country great again, we need to shake ourselves free of this absurd justice.
