24yo Head Armorer on Alec Baldwin’s Movie Set Described as ‘A Bit Careless With the Guns’ At Previous Job — Media

The armorer who was preparing prop guns at the set of Alec Baldwin’s movie ‘Rust’ was reportedly seen doing her job in an unsafe manner on an earlier production, including handing an unchecked gun to a child actress.

Hannah Gutierrez-Reed, 24, was working her second production as head armorer when actor and producer Baldwin accidentally shot dead the film’s director of photography, Halyna Hutchins, and wounded director Joel Souza. It was later revealed that Baldwin was assured by his assistant director that the gun was “cold,” or safe to use, moments before he pulled the trigger.

A new report has suggested that while the young woman responsible for the prop firearms on the set was the daughter of a famed Hollywood prop master, she had a small, but already alarming track record.

“She was a bit careless with the guns, waving it around every now and again,” a source, who worked with Gutierrez-Reed on the upcoming Nicolas Cage flick ‘The Old Way’, told the Daily Beast. “There were a couple times she was loading the blanks and doing it in a fashion that we thought was unsafe.”

Another unnamed crew member said considerably less attention had been paid to gun safety on ‘The Old Way’ set compared to his previous movies…

Alec Baldwin ‘Inconsolable’ After Deadly ‘Rust’ Movie Set Shooting, ‘Canceling Other Projects’: Report

Alec Baldwin was reportedly “inconsolable for hours” after allegedly discharging a prop gun on the New Mexico set of his Western film “Rust” in an accidental shooting that killed cinematographer Halyna Hutchins and injured director Joel Souza, a source with knowledge of the matter told People.

“Everyone knows this was an accident, but he’s absolutely devastated,” the unnamed source said, describing how Baldwin was “hysterical and absolutely inconsolable for hours” after the incident.

The actor “is canceling other projects,” the source said, and will “take some time to himself and re-center himself” by spending more time with family.

Another Alleged Facebook Whistleblower is Calling for Censorship

A new alleged Facebook whistleblower has suggested that Facebook executives prioritized profits over containing misinformation and “hate speech” and has spurred another round of media calls for Facebook to censor more.

The new whistleblower supposedly corroborated allegations made by Frances Haugen, who testified before congress a few weeks ago calling for more censorship.

The new whistleblower, who is yet to be named, is a former Facebook employee. They made the allegations in an affidavit to the Securities and Exchange Commission (SEC), according to the Washington Post.

Baldwin Film Crew Had Been Target Shooting With “Prop Gun” Before Incident

The authorities in New Mexico who are investigating the accidental shooting death of cinematographer Halyna Hutchins by Alec Baldwin still aren’t releasing many details coming out of their inquiries, but the actors and crew members who were there have been singing like canaries to members of the press and new details seem to emerge every day. If you haven’t already heard about how many things went wrong with the “prop gun” that was used by Baldwin in the week leading up to the shooting, go read Allahpundit’s last entry first. A picture is painted of a movie set where everything that could conceivably have gone wrong managed to do so, at least in terms of the armorer and the firearms being used.

Now, however, even more alarming stories have emerged about the frightening lack of gun sense and awareness on Baldwin’s set. The New York Post reports that the gun in question wasn’t spending all of its time stored in a gun safe when not required on the set. Sources associated with the production report that members of the crew had been taking the weapon out for “target practice” in the desert when they weren’t filming. Tell me again how you take a “prop gun” out for target practice, please.

Big Switch: New Hampshire Democrats Want Biden Primaried in 2024

The latest University of New Hampshire survey of primary voters found that Democrats, by a 45% to 29% margin, want Biden to face “opposition in primary.” Some 26% were unsure.

Blair County Protesters Advocate for Freedom in Multiple Areas

ALTOONA, Pa. (WTAJ)— A group of people protested along 17th street in Altoona Saturday in regards to vaccine and masks mandates as well as Second Amendment ballot questions in the upcoming election.

The group organized the protest within three weeks using word of mouth, social media, flyers, and other communication. Around noon, they held their signs and megaphone to spread the word about their cause.

The ballot question asks whether Blair County citizens want to enter a Second Amendment sanctuary. That means if Blair County were to enter a sanctuary that no taxpayer resources shall be used to enforce legislation passed after November 2 that infringes one right to bear arms.

Exclusive: Two SF Prosecutors Quit & Join Effort to Oust Former Boss, District Attorney Chesa Boudin

Prosecutors Brooke Jenkins and Don Du Bain tell the NBC Bay Area Investigative Unit they have quit their jobs at the San Francisco District Attorney’s office and joined the effort to recall their former boss, District Attorney Chesa Boudin.

They are among at least 51 lawyers at the San Francisco District Attorney’s Office who have either left or been fired since Boudin took office in January 2020, according to documents obtained by the Investigative Unit — that’s about a third of the department’s attorneys now gone.

“Chesa has a radical approach that involves not charging crime in the first place and simply releasing individuals with no rehabilitation and putting them in positions where they are simply more likely to re-offend,” Jenkins said.

[Comment: Chesa Boudin is the son of two Weather Undergound members who went to prison for murder. After his parents were incarcerated, Boudin was raised in Chicago by adoptive parents Bill Ayers and Bernardine Dohrn, who were also members of the Weather Underground. Source: Wikipedia]

Kyrie Irving Latest: Protesters Burst Through Barricades Outside Nets’ Barclays Center Over Vaccine Drama

Kyrie Irving has not yet played for the Brooklyn Nets this season because of a vaccine mandate in New York City that prevents unvaccinated players from participating in home games in New York. Irving technically could have played in Brooklyn’s first two games of the season, but the Nets chose not to play Irving at all rather than allow him to participate only in road games. On Sunday, though, the Nets returned home to Brooklyn to play their first home game of the season, and that has led to significant protesting outside of their home arena, the Barclays Center.

A number of protesters against the vaccine mandate gathered at the arena in downtown Brooklyn on Sunday. They chanted “let Kyrie play” while holding up signs that read “Stand with Kyrie” ahead of Brooklyn’s Sunday matinee matchup with the Charlotte Hornets.

UC Berkeley Students Happily Pledge Money to Help the Taliban Kill Americans Inside the U.S.

My latest at PJ Media:

“We’re trying to raise money for the Taliban,” Horowitz tells student passersby, and as if that wasn’t hard enough in itself to believe, he piles on more absurdities: “Tax deductible. I mean, if you earn money in Afghanistan, so that’s probably less helpful to you guys.” Horowitz explains to one man: “We’re Taliban 2.0. We’re kinder, gentler. Not really, but okay. You know, it’s our, it’s the way, it’s the way we roll.”

US Rabbi: Criticizing George Soros the Radical Far Left Funder is Not Anti-Semitic

After Republican Virginia gubernatorial candidate Glenn Youngkin came under fire for attacking George Soros, Caucus For America president Rabbi Aryeh Spero defended him Friday, noting that that criticism of Soros was being unfairly labelled as anti-Semitic, Israel National News reports.

“The charge by Terry McAuliffe’s supporters that his opponent, Glenn Youngkin, is anti-Semitic because he criticized George Soros is preposterous,” Rabbi Spero said, according to Israel National News.

“No person is beyond criticism simply because he is a member of a minority community,” stated Rabbi Spero. “Mr. Soros actively and openly engages in politics and in influencing state and local governments and is, therefore, a legitimate object of criticism, especially concerning the leftwing policies he’s tried to force on America through his massive underwritings. Thus, this accusation is just another dishonest attempt to win an election by playing the ‘anti-Semitism card.’ It is specious chutzpah.”

“Furthermore, those who point to Soros do so not because he is Jewish but because he is Soros, Soros being the most high profile and effective opponent today of American traditional values,” added Rabbi Spero. “As is well documented, he is by far the primary funder of radical leftist candidates and groups vowing to transform America into a transnational entity. Most people don’t even know the ethnic background of George Soros.”

The district will have 15 days to provide proof of compliance with the proclamation. A second, 5-day notice will be given if no proof is provided.”

UK: Islamist Extremism Won’t be Addressed by Ignoring It

by Stephen Evans

The national conversation following the brutal killing of David Amess suggests an unwillingness to tackle the Islamic extremism behind it, argues Stephen Evans.

The brutal killing of David Amess, stabbed to death at his Essex constituency surgery last week, was a vile, cowardly attack on decency and democracy.

The utter senselessness and callousness of this killing makes it hard to comprehend.

MPs and commentators have understandably expressed shock and grief, taken time to remember a man who dedicated his life to public service, and reflected on his legacy.

But the national conversation around Sir David’s killing has also taken a bizarre turn on the issue of what caused it.

In no time at all commentators were blaming the “toxic political discourse” and “social media internet trolls” who hide behind anonymity while spreading hate.

This certainly is an issue, but it doesn’t appear to be the issue, not as far as this murder is concerned…

“The Basic Message is Hatred”: The Persecution of Christians, September 2021

The following are among the abuses inflicted on Christians by Muslims throughout the month of September 2021:

Muslim Slaughter of Christians

Afghanistan: Muslims linked to the Islamic State murdered four Christians. While trying to escape the country, a Christian family was intercepted by the jihadists. According to a local source:

“ISIS asked them, ‘we have tape about you that you are no longer Muslims. So is it true that you are not Muslim?’ They said, ‘Yes, we are not Muslims anymore. We are Christians.’ So the men of this family were killed at the spot. The children and women, they let them go.”

Also and in keeping with what several international human rights groups are warning, former U.S. Secretary of State Mike Pompeo wrote an article in which he expressed his concern that a “genocide” of Christians is brewing in Afghanistan.

India: 3200 Islamic State Sleeper Cells With 32000 Jihadis Active in Kerala, With Pakistani Support

Interrogation of two female suicide bombers named Shifa Haris and Mizha Siddique of the Islamic State’s Kerala module has revealed that around 3200 ISIS sleeper cells are operating in Kerala, India. The National Investigation Agency (NIA) team from Delhi arrested both of the women from a residence at Thana in Kerala’s Kannur in August of this year.

Each of these cells has around 10 members, which translates to the presence of 32000 Islamic jihadis in the state, with at least 40% of these being women. Many of these women have been converted to Islam from other faiths through narcotics jihad or grooming jihad. The charge sheet presented by the NIA states that Mizha Siddique had travelled to Tehran with her accomplices and intended to cross over to Syria illegally, but failed. Mizha was working under the direction of the Kerala ISIS kingpin, Mohammad Ameen, and recruiting Muslim youth for ISIS. Mohammad Ameen is now behind bars. Mizha had recruited her cousins Shifa Harris and Mushab Anwar for jihad and inspired them to join ISIS. Shifa had sent funds to their Kashmir module; they were planning Hijra, Islamic religious migration, to Kashmir. About seven young jihadis were set to migrate to Kashmir from Kerala.

Korean War Film Major Hit Among Chinese. Journalist Arrested for Criticism

by Lu Haitao

The film recounts the battle of Changjin Lake between US-led UN troops and Chinese soldiers. Released during China’s national holiday. State propaganda dampens criticism of Beijing’s aid to North Korea in the 1950-1953 conflict. Official media root for Luo Changping’s detention.

Beijing (AsiaNews) — The film “The Battle of Changjin Lake” is a major hit in Chinese cinemas. On show since October 1, a national holiday in China, the film tells the story of a fierce battle fought by Chinese soldiers against U.S.-led UN troops during the Korean War of 1950-1953.

As relations between Washington and Beijing become increasingly tense, the film work on the 70-year-old conflict signals the Asian giant’s tough stance and patriotic fever in Chinese society.

The propaganda film has proven a box office hit, earning over 3.5 billion yuan (462 million euros) and is expected to top the film charts nationally. As reported by the New York Times, Sun Hongyun, an associate professor at the Beijing Film Academy, commented that the film is “an extraordinary and perfect collusion of capital and political propaganda.”

The authorities poured unprecedented investment into the film which cost 1.3 billion yuan (171.6 million euros). The production received direct support from the propaganda and military apparatus of the Chinese Communist Party (CCP); 70,000 soldiers of the People’s Liberation Army acted as extras.

Popular actors such as Wu Jing furthered its success; in 2014 and 2017, Wu directed and starred in “Wolf Warrior I and II,” patriotic-themed works that achieved great commercial success.

Greece: Muslim Migrants March With Flag of Pro-Sharia Pakistani Group

What are the chances of these marchers becoming loyal citizens of a secular Greek government? Right, about nil. Sharia is a political as well as a religious system, and it is a political system that is authoritarian, aggressive, expansionist, and supremacist. But to point this out is to be “Islamophobic.”

  1. RE; UN warns of Global Famine,Chaos,terrorism and …War if COPO26 Climate Summit Fails. Just more Doomsday predictions and climate hyesteria being delivered by the fraudlent prophet ‘Saint Greta The Green’ , the patron Saint of the Green Mafia. BTW as to food shortages and famine just look to Zimbabwe, (once the breadbasket of Africa) Venezuela and other countrirs when Socialist Dictators took over thr economy, farming, manufacturing and distribution.

  2. If anyone doubts for one minute that the evil midget Faux Chi and the rest of the medical industrial horror machine are servants of Satan, the please read this article.

    No sane human being could ever conceive of this torture- oops! meant to say “experiments” except maybe the same people who remove the organs from living babies just before they are born.

    Faux Chi, Collins, Birx, Wollensky and the entire cabal of Satanists who are part of the Biden Junta can only be dealt with via an exorcism and then fed to a herd of starving wild boars.

    There really is no punishment too severe for sociopathic criminals who commit these crimes against nature and humanity.

    Now you understand that we and the Germans all the time had to do something with the Poles so that they finally shut up.

    Sorry. I know this is a rude and insensitive joke.
