“Just posting this for the memories.”

Alec “Six-Gun” Baldwin still thinks he won’t be charged for shooting two people, killing one of them.

Perhaps he’s correct. However, considering that what he has admitted to doing was clearly involuntary manslaughter under New Mexico law (and assault for the director’s wounding), it is quite possible he’ll effectively be found “not guilty due to liberal celebrity.”

If we ever hear the results of a proper investigation, others could face charges, and Baldwin’s charges could be up- or down-graded depending on circumstances. But — again — by his own admission he’s guilty of involuntary manslaughter.

You broke every safe firearm handling rule there is, Baldwin, and killed a woman. Perhaps others share some blame, but you cocked and pointed a loaded gun at her, and now she’s dead.

SCOTUS And “Remain In Mexico” Policy

I’ve seen some people expressing anger at the Supreme Court over their ruling on Biden ending the Trump-era “remain in Mexico” policy. While I wpuld prefer to see that policy continued, I didn’t much expect it… if SCOTUS did its job properly.

Mike Huckabee explained it quite succinctly.

So just to be clear, it wasn’t the Court’s decision but Biden’s decision to reverse the Trump order that will lead to disaster. The SCOTUS simply affirmed that as President, he has the Constitutional authority to make disastrous decisions. I just wish he’d quit doing it.

SCOTUS didn’t endorse Biden’s action; it just determined whether the constitutional authority was there.

Just as it made a similar determination in West Virgina v. EPA that the EPA lacked such authority. And Conservatives cheered that. Me, too.

Russia v. Ukraine: Master-Level Trolling

In response to the plans of the Russian Parliament to revoke Russia’s recognition of Lithuania’s Declaration of Independence from the USSR in 1991, the Kyiv City Council has cancelled the decree by Kyiv Rus Grand Prince Volodymyr of the founding of Moscow in 1147.

Moscow is gone

That’s funny.

I Recall More Profanity Than Prayer

I’m not a parent, but I have given a driving lesson to a teenaged girl.

Study Shows Teaching A Teen To Drive Best Way To Improve Prayer Life
This week, an international panel of scholars released the findings of a study examining a causal link between an improved prayer life and teaching a teen to drive. The results are conclusive: parents who report a “poor-moderate” prayer life increase their prayer by over 329% after the first behind-the-wheel lesson.

We’d gone to an empty parking lot for the lesson. And she found the one light pole. With my rear bumper. When she was supposed to be going forward.

I left further lessons to her father.

That’s a pretty safe claim to make, Caroline.

Another of those crazy “my body, my choice, your responsibility” types.

All the ways Americans are trying to avoid pregnancy in the wake of Dobbs v. Jackson decision
“If we can’t safely go out and have sex and know that we will have a choice after that, then why should we be expected to?” Caroline Healey, a 22-year-old event coordinator, told the New York Post.

She said that men who do not get a vasectomy and are not protesting in the streets for easily-accessible abortions “do not deserve to have sex with me.”

Based on name, age, profession, and location, this appears to be Ms. Healey. I’d say she’s safe in claiming that she won’t have sex with the vast majority of men. And that was the case before Dobbs. I wouldn’t.

In an age when she has responsible options like the rhythm method, birth control pills, contraceptive implants, female condoms, IUDs, Plan B, and tubal ligation, she demands that her theoretical sex partner permanently sterilize himself.

That right there is another reason I wouldn’t touch her, even if I found the wrong LinkedIn account. She’s a whiny, irresponsible, mentally childish bitch; an adult only temporally.

And if she had a lick of sense, she might consider just what sort of guy she’d be getting; someone who would sterilize himself just to get a one night stand with a whiny, irresponsible, mentally childish bitch.

They’d deserve each other.

Did Hutchinson’s Testimony Include ANYTHING That Was True?

The limo/SUV incident didn’t happen.

She didn’t write the note.

She didn’t talk to the guy who wasn’t actually at the White House.

And…

ROGER STONE Adds Two More Lies to List of Lies Made by Liz Cheney’s Star Witness Cassidy Hutchinson
Congresswoman Liz Cheney induced Hutchinson to say it was her “understanding” that “President Trump instructed White House Chief of Staff Mark Meadows to call Roger Stone and General Michael Flynn on the evening of January 5th” and that it was Hutchinson’s “understanding” that these calls were completed on the evening of January 5th.
[…]
I received no such call from Mark Meadows on January 5th. In fact, although I met him once in the green room at FOX in 2019 when he was still a Congressman, I have never spoken to him by phone or in person on any other occasion.

General Flynn tells me that he didn’t speak to Mark Meadows on January 5th and neither has he ever had any phone conversation with Meadows.
[…]
Hutchinson went on to say that Meadows wanted to attend a “briefing in a war room set up in the Willard Hotel.” Hutchinson said that Meadows was persuaded not to attend this briefing in person but that he participated in the briefing “with Roger Stone and General Flynn” by phone.

Except they’ve never spoken to him on the phone.

At this point, I need to know: Is “Cassidy Hutchinson” really her name, or did she get that wrong, too?

TZP Columns: Playing Catch Up

I have a few TZP columns that I hadn’t linked here yet.

ANOTHER SUPREME COURT CASE TO WATCH
I only just became aware of this case before the Supreme Court. It isn’t directly related to Second Amendment issues, but if SCOTUS rules for West Virginia et al, the precedent could be useful.

REINING IN BUREAUCRATS
Yesterday, I wrote about West Virgina v. EPA, a case challenging the ability of EPA bureaucrats to write “law.” If the states won, the precedent would be great news for those challenging the ATF’s propensity for pretending to be Congress.

SCOTUS REMANDS REMAINING SECOND AMENDMENT CASES
Today’s orders list is out. The Supreme Court granted certiorari for several 2A cases, vacated them, and remanded them back to the Circuit courts “further consideration in light of New York State Rifle & Pistol Assn., Inc. v. Bruen, 597 U. S. ___ (2022).”

We’ve definitely been getting some good news on the 2A front.

Occasionally-firing-Cortex, Insurrectionist

Socialists hate it when a constitutional branch of the government pees on their plans to destroy the country. So clearly they think it must be eliminated.

Should her two brain cells happen to bump into each other, she might want to consider that the EPA was usurping her own legislative authority. Sure, this time they were trying to advance her goal (green energy BS), but what would she… think if a Republican admin had the EPA open up oil and gas drilling everywhere, not permits needed, no royalties?

Still Not April Fools Day

Still stupid.

Well, Severus “ruled” the Roman province of Britain (certainly not the United Kingdom) as the emperor. But he was Italic/Punic, not Black. Julia Domna was Arabic, still not Black.

I guess UK schools are as a bad as American public schools.

Rich New Yorkers Undergo Bizarre Surgical Procedure To Cut Pee Breaks On Way To Hamptons
Wealthy New Yorkers headed to the tony Hamptons are getting a surgical procedure that allows them to endure bumper-to-bumper traffic without having to pee, according to Insider.com. One doctor says he is doing up to a dozen of the operations per week as summer beach season moves into full swing.

Is someone pranking reporters? Or are crazies — and crazy doctors — really doing this?

I suppose unethical docs could be doing these procedures on otherwise healthy idiots, as a way of generating income from repeat business treating urinary tract infections.
