Alec Baldwin Ignored the No. 1 Rule of Gun Safety: Hollywood Weapons Expert

Alec Baldwin, who accidentally killed his cinematographer on the set of his film “Rust,” should have never pointed a gun at another human, even if he believed it was safe, Hollywood safety experts told The Post.

And the actor is now likely to face a gantlet of legal challenges — including possible criminal charges — as both the man who pulled the trigger and as the executive producer responsible for set safety, legal experts said.

“Loaded or unloaded, a weapon never gets pointed at another human being,” Hollywood firearms consultant Bryan Carpenter of Dark Thirty Film Services told The Post. . .

For safety, all live firearms used in TV and film productions are typically aimed at a dummy point, not at equipment, cast or crew, Carpenter noted. Guns, he said, are never aimed at a person.

“You never let the muzzle of a weapon cover something you don’t intend to destroy,” said Carpenter, whose New Orleans-based firm has worked on the sets of scores of TV and film productions. “All guns are always loaded. Even if they are not, treat them as if they are.” (Read more from “Alec Baldwin Ignored the No. 1 Rule of Gun Safety: Hollywood Weapons Expert” HERE)

NYC Man Tries to Strangle Little Girl Arraigned, Out on Bail

A 29-year-old man accused of trying to strangle an 11-year-old girl in a Manhattan park was arraigned and released on $7,500 bail on Saturday night.

Nathaniel Direnzo, of Saint Marks Place, was arrested on Saturday morning for a bizarre, broad-daylight attack on the young girl and another minor on Wednesday afternoon. . .

According to police, just around noon on Oct. 20, Direnzo approached the girl and her classmates at Stuyvesant Square with her classmates and began to yell at them, before spraying water on the group and trying to attack them, cops said.

When the young girl tried to fight back, cops say Direnzo grabbed her by the hair and punched her in the face. He then allegedly “wrapped his hands around the girl’s neck,” trying to strangle her, police said. (Read more from “NYC Man Tries to Strangle Little Girl Arraigned, Out on Bail” HERE)

Christian Parents Launch Legal Fight Over School’s Extreme Trans Policy

Christian parents Nigel and Sally Rowe have launched a legal fight against the government in the United Kingdom over the way it has failed to protect their children from the school system’s transgender agenda.

Supported by the Christian Legal Center, Nigel, 48, and his wife Sally, 46, are seeking a judge’s review of the Department for Education’s refusal to intervene in their case and its promotion of what lawyers describe as the “politically partisan” Cornwall Schools Transgender Guidelines.

The standards were published in 2015 by activists promoting the transgender ideology, but their legitimacy has risen because of endorsement by the Department of Education.

The Rowes, from the Isle of Wight, had been given the choice by the Church of England school their sons were attending either to affirm transgenderism or be labeled “transphobic.”

They eventually were forced out the school, and now are homeschooling. (Read more from “Christian Parents Launch Legal Fight Over School’s Extreme Trans Policy” HERE)

Video: Migrant Caravan Bulldoze Mexican National Guard; Organizer Says Biden Admin’s Policies Pulling Illegal Aliens to U.S. ‘Like Cattle’

Several thousand migrants from Haiti, South America, and Central America are making their way north to the southern border of the United States. Mexican law enforcement attempted to utilize a roadblock to stop the massive migrant caravan in southern Mexico, but the migrants easily steamrolled their way past the large group of officers.

Approximately 3,000 migrants marched in the southern Mexican city of Tapachula – about 10 miles from the Guatemala border. There are reports that members of the caravan were carrying signs with President Joe Biden’s name on them, including one that read: “Joe Biden Is For All.”

Caravan organizer Irineo Mujica said the Biden administration’s immigration policies are pulling migrants to the U.S. “like cattle.”

Mujica said the migrants should be given an opportunity to work in Mexico “because a lot of them don’t want to be brought to the U.S. but the Biden administration, with this administration, it’s like pulling them like cattle, first they come to this jail and then they go to the northern border.” (Read more from “Video: Migrant Caravan Bulldoze Mexican National Guard; Organizer Says Biden Admin’s Policies Pulling Illegal Aliens to U.S. ‘Like Cattle’” HERE)

WATCH: Robot Dog Taking Homeless People’s Temps to Track for COVID

The Honolulu Police Department in Hawaii is using a $150,000 robot named “Spot” to take the temperatures of homeless people in its effort to combat COVID-19.

Lt. Joseph O’Neal, acting lieutenant of HPD’s community outreach unit, justified the cost, which was borne by pandemic relief funds. He argued a tool that “takes transmission out of the equation” is not “a waste” from a long-term perspective.

KHON-TV in Honolulu reported Spot, a product of Boston Dynamics, is capable of taking a person’s temperature from a distance of seven feet in a fraction of a second.

“It also has two-way communication and can deliver PPE (personal protective equipment), food and water to someone who does test positive for COVID,” the news anchor said.

Disturbing Report: School Tied Mask on to Little Girl With Down Syndrome for Weeks

Florida educators forced a young girl with Down syndrome to wear a mask by tying it to her head despite it putting the non-verbal child in possible danger, a furious father claims.

Sofia Steele — a 7-year-old girl from Indian Harbour Beach, Florida — allegedly stepped off the school bus on Oct. 7 with a face mask on. Jeffery Steele, the 7-year-old’s father, thought it was strange since she had never come home from school wearing a mask. Upon further inspection, the father said he found that the face mask was tied around the girl’s head with a blue nylon string and held in place with hair clips. The mask was allegedly soaked with saliva.

“I was so angry so I waited four days from Thursday 7th to Tuesday after Columbus Day because I really need to calm down,” Steel told WOFL-TV. “When this child got off the bus and had the mask it was tied around the back of her head underneath her ponytail and it was quite tight around her face.”

The father believed his daughter was exempt from Ocean Breeze Elementary School’s mask mandate because of her disability. Sofia has an enlarged tongue and breathes through her mouth, which makes wearing a face mask potentially dangerous. The father said that Sofia has an individual education plan at the school that caters to her special needs.

“Medically, she could aspirate. She could asphyxiate all sorts of medical things that could happen and because of her breathing because of her enlarged tongue could cause seizures,” Steele said. (Read more from “Disturbing: School Tied Mask on to Little Girl With Down Syndrome for Weeks” HERE)

CNN’s Townhall Crowd Audibly Giggles as Biden Becomes Confused Mid Sentence

By Daily Caller. Members of the audience at CNN’s Thursday town hall could be heard laughing when President Joe Biden appeared to lose his train of thought.

Biden was giving an answer to moderator Anderson Cooper about the Democrats’ plan to expand Medicare – making it so that the program would cover dental, vision and hearing – and he pivoted mid-sentence, apparently trying to reel himself back in.

“One of the other things that Democrats are looking to do is to expand Medicare to include dental, vision, and hearing as well,” Cooper began, asking whether those three items would survive the negotiations going on within the Democratic Party.

‘Let’s Go, Brandon’ Goes to Washington

By Breitbart. Congressman Bill Posey (R-FL) criticized the Biden administration’s economic agenda on the House floor on Thursday and ended the speech by saying, “Let’s go, Brandon,” which is a nod to the popular anti-Biden chant.

“Based on the false promise that he would unify America, President Biden got into the Oval Office,” Rep. Posey said. “And my friends on the other side of the aisle gained a razor-thin majority in the House and Senate.”

[Warning: tweet contains explicit language.]

“But you know, we know, we all know, everybody knows the unification promise was a lie, and your majority is going to be short-lived,” he added. “So you must feel compelled to rush through a radical agenda before the midterms.”

Posey finished by saying that Americans want Democrats “to help put America back where you found it and leave it the hell alone. Let’s go, Brandon!” (Read more from “‘Let’s Go, Brandon’ Goes to Washington” HERE)

State Department Says 363 Americans Still Trapped in Afghanistan; Biden Admin Lied Claiming Only 100 Left Behind After Botched Withdrawal

At least 363 Americans are still trapped in Afghanistan — far above the administration’s initial estimate — weeks after the Biden administration’s botched withdrawal from the jihadist-controlled country, according to the State Department.

The State Department reportedly relayed the information to congressional staff Thursday, admitting it is in contact with 363 Americans stranded in Afghanistan. Of those, 176 reportedly want to come home.

This figure is far greater than the estimate offered by Secretary of State Antony Blinken last month, insisting that roughly 100 Americans were left in the country.

“We believe the number of those who have American citizenship, many of them dual-nationals, who remain in Afghanistan is somewhere around a hundred,” he told reporters in Qatar in September, claiming the department to be in “direct contact with virtually all of them.”

“We are working around the clock to help U.S. citizens, to help lawful permanent residents, to help at-risk Afghans to whom we have a special commitment depart Afghanistan if they so choose,” he said at the time, claiming that they had “successfully done that already.”

Afghan Refugee Charged With Rape of 18-Year-old After Resettling in U.S.

An Afghan refugee was charged with raping an 18-year-old after resettling in Missoula, Montana, Fox News reported on Thursday.

Zabihullah Muhmand, 19, ended up in Montana as part of a State Department effort to resettle people evacuated from Afghanistan after the government fell to the Taliban in mid-August, Republican Montana Gov. Greg Gianforte announced, according to Fox News. Gianforte asked the Biden administration to stop resettlement efforts so officials can look into the vetting process of evacuees.

“911 received a call from the victim and also from the local motel who wanted to report seeing some concerning behavior between a male and female,” police official Lydia Arnold said, local outlet KGVO reported. “Officers were able to connect the victim with the resources in Missoula to aid the victim with immediate medical assistance, conduct a preliminary investigation, and take a preliminary statement from the victim.”

Muhmand was arrested after the victim called 911 from a motel in Missoula, the Missoula Police Department told Fox News. Muhmand was charged with sexual intercourse without consent and is in custody at the Missoula County Jail pending the results of an investigation.

Fauci, Washington’s Highest-Paid Fed, Got Big Break Under George W. Bush

Dr. Anthony Fauci drew a salary of $434,312 in 2020, making him the federal government’s highest-paid employee for the second year in a row, and the top earner among dozens of medical officers receiving high salaries throughout the executive branch.

Fauci, director of the National Institutes of Health’s (NIH) National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Diseases (NIAID) and current chief medical adviser to the president, was paid $417,608 in 2019.

That’s according to federal compensation data compiled and published by Open The Books, an Illinois-based nonprofit that compiles and publishes millions of salary, pension, and other spending data for the federal and state governments, as well as the nation’s largest cities. The federal salary database can be found here.

Fauci is paid more than the president of the United States, the vice president, Senate Majority Leader Chuck Schumer (D-N.Y.), Speaker of the House Nancy Pelosi (D-Calif.), and all nine Supreme Court justices.

Fauci, at $399,625, was the third-highest-paid federal employee in 2018, exceeded only by Robert J. Wylie, a medical officer colleague at the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services (HHS). The second highest that year was another HHS medical officer, Rachel Sherman, at $399,750. (Read more from “Fauci, Washington’s Highest-Paid Fed, Got Big Break Under George W. Bush” HERE)
