Defensive Alec Baldwin Denies Obstructing Cell Phone Investigation

Baldwin appeared furious over the accusation.

Published

Now months removed from the shooting death of cinematographer Halyna Hutchins by Hollywood’s Alec Baldwin, investigators are continuing to attempt to understand just how a live round ended up in a weapon that the actor was pointing at the camera.

And, perhaps even more worrisome, is just how Baldwin has chosen to categorize the incident, stating emphatically that he never pulled the trigger.

Now, in true Hollywood fashion, this may very well be a McGuffin, or a plot-driving point with no value.  Because, if Alec Baldwin sets the argument as to whether or not he pulled the trigger, (and if he knows beyond a shadow of a doubt that there is no footage from the incident, which he would know as a producer on the film), then he is moving investigatory eyes away from the negligence that existed on his set, and into some sort of strange “trigger pull or no trigger pull” argument.

In recent days, Baldwin has stood accused of obstructing a warrant meant to obtain data from his cellphone, and is now emphatically denying such claims.

Alec Baldwin refuted allegations that he is not complying with a probe into the fatal shooting of a woman on the set of the film “Rust” last year.

The firing of a prop gun by Baldwin led to the death of the director of photography, Halyna Hutchins, and injured the director, Joel Souza.

“Any suggestion that I am not complying with requests or orders or demands or search warrants about my phone, that’s bullshit, that’s a lie,” Baldwin said in a lengthy video posted to Instagram on Saturday.

But the reality of the situation sounded a lot like red tape.

The actor said in the Instagram video that authorities in New Mexico, where the shooting took place, have to go through the state of New York, where he lives, to obtain his cellphone.

On Friday, law enforcement officials in New Mexico requested assistance from authorities in New York in their efforts to retrieve the phone, according to a BBC report.

“That is a process that takes time. They have to specify what exactly they want, they can’t just go through your phone and take your photos or your love letters to your wife or what have you,” Baldwin said.

At this time it does not appear that Baldwin will be held legally liable in the case, but there are still concerns that his capacity as a producer on the film could see him culpable for damages in a civil suit claiming negligence.

Major Conservative Personality Flips on 45: ‘Trump is Done!’

Are they really this out of tough with the Republican Party?

Published

on

On the right side of the aisle, there are few storylines as trite and tawdry as that of former President Donald Trump’s potential bid for reelection in 2024, and all of the strange circumstances that go along with it.

First, Trump is battling a number of challenges to his political career.  There is not only the January 6th select committee, that appears to be aiming their efforts at having Trump prosecuted in the coming months, but there is also the New York State Attorney General, who is investigating the Trump Organization and attempting to attack the former President through the targeting of his children. 

But now there are other issues for Trump, particularly as Florida Governor Ron DeSantis appears to be posturing himself for a run at the GOP nomination himself.  Trump has been quoted as wondering why DeSantis won’t simply support his own efforts, and the Sunshine State lawmaker has responded brutally.

This has led one of America’s most recognizable conservative pundits to speak up.

 Conservative pundit Ann Coulter is predicting the end of Donald Trump’s hegemony in the GOP, saying the former president “is done.”

“Trump is done,” Coulter, a onetime Trump booster turned critic, wrote in an email to The New York Times. “You guys should stop obsessing over him.”

Coulter’s comments came in an article published in the Times on Sunday about the mounting tensions between Trump and Florida Gov. Ron DeSantis (R) amid speculation of a potential showdown for the 2024 Republican presidential nomination.

This wasn’t the first time that Coulter has attacked Trump in recent days.

Coulter pounced on Trump over those comments in a tweet last week calling the former president a “liar and con man.”

“EXCLUSIVE: Trump is demanding to know Ron DeSantis’s booster status, and I can now reveal it,” Coulter wrote. “He was a loyal booster when Trump ran in 2016, but then he learned our president was a liar and con man whose grift was permanent. I hope that clears things up.”

While this certainly may make it seem as though Trump is facing some sort of serious threat to his potential nomination, polls have nearly universally shown him as the odds-on favorite for the 2024 nomination, besting even DeSantis by a vast number of points.

UFC Chief Laments Lack of Available Monoclonal COVID Treatments

This, just days after Florida accused the federal government of hoarding the life-saving treatments.

Published

on

If you were to ask the government about the options that we have for defeating the coronavirus pandemic, you are likely to hear but one side of the story:  Vaccines.

The Biden administration has been unwavering in their support of these inoculations, even going so far as to attempt to install a constitutionally unsound vaccine mandate that took only two months for the Supreme Court to gut.

But there are other options too, induing the widely popular and effective monoclonal antibody treatments.  And, despite the government’s insistence on pushing vaccines on the masses, the Biden administration has also appeared to corner the market on these life-saving medicines…and they’re being awfully stingy with them.

“I bet I could get some f*****g pain pills quicker than I could get monoclonal antibodies,” UFC President Dana White said in regards to the rationing of monoclonal antibodies for treatment of COVID-19 during a press conference on Saturday following the UFC 45 Vegas in Las Vegas, NV.

MMA Weekly asked White about a left-wing censorship campaign targeting Joe Rogan under the auspices of “misinformation” involving an “open letter” from assorted medical professionals and academic calling on Spotify, the distributor or Rogan’s eponymous podcast, to “take action” against what they described as “mass-misinformation” which is “medically and culturally dangerous.”

The exchange was lively to say the least.

MMA Weekly asked, “I was wondering what your thoughts were with the 200-plus doctors trying to put pressure on Spotify saying that Joe’s a menace.”

White replied, “Are they really? Well how about this, ever since I came out and said what I did, It’s almost impossible now to get monoclonal antibodies. They’re making it so you can’t get them — medicine that absolutely works, they’re keeping from us. I don’t want to get too political and start getting into all this s***, but ivermectin and monoclonal antibodies have been around for a long time. Now, all of a sudden, you can’t dig them up to save your life. The doctors won’t give them to you.”

The criticism arrives amid a flurry of complaints from Florida officials, complaining that the Biden administration simply will not ship these treatments to them, and without providing any reason as to why.
