It's Just the Coffee Talking: I can't stand Alec Baldwin, but I fail to see how he is 'guilty'; and what about the 30 million (MILLION) pages of documents Obama took & refused to give back? NOTHING. That's what.


Good Morning Coffee Friends -

Thanks for popping in this morning.  Got your coffee?

I came here this morning with coffee but got pulled away and active in a busy morning and am just now getting back to blog.  I don't have coffee right now, but I am eating coffee ice cream... so I'm still chatting over coffee, kind of.  Ha ha.

I was skimming some news headlines and one of the things hitting the news this weekend is that FBI has found Alec Baldwin must have pulled the trigger to fire the gun that killed a woman on the set.  

I haven't been following that whole story/situation so my first thought was ...  duh?  Of course he pulled the trigger to fire the gun - or it would not have fired?  So I clicked to read it quickly and find out what I missing.

Ohhhh.  So he claims he cocked the gun but did not pull the trigger and it must have fired on its own.

I see.

OK.  So yeah, he is probably trying to come up with an excuse to why the gun fired to cover his butt.  I get that now.  They had to look into that claim since he specifically said it.  But honestly from the very, very start, here was my initial thought on that situation when it first happened - and it hasn't wavered since.

My thoughts:  Mr. Baldwin is an actor.  His job is to wear the costumes, and handle the props given to him to do his job as an actor.  He was given a prop to use (the gun) on the set, by the prop department.  In being given a movie prop, he would not be out of line to assume (as anyone would) a movie prop gun used on set, would be just that; a prop.  And you can spin it, point it, pull the trigger, drop it; do whatever with it because it's just a prop.

I wouldn't find fault with Mr. Baldwin for pulling the trigger on a movie prop gun because anyone and everyone should and would assume a movie prop is... a prop.  

Who would have thought the prop department would have, load, and use a real gun and hand it to an actor to use in filming?   That's insane.  Even if you used a real gun as a prop it would certainly not be loaded... why would it?  It's a movie set.  

As much as I absolutely can't stand Alex Baldwin (I think he's an arrogant jerk, a celebrity bully with a big ego and big mouth,) I cannot imagine holding him accountable for what is obviously guilt on the movie prop department for giving him a real, loaded gun to work with.

Had I been in his place, an actor handed a gun on the movie set, I would have assumed it to be a harmless prop and felt no hesitation in cocking it, pulling the trigger or playing with as it never should have been a real, loaded gun.  It never would have entered my mind the prop department would have handed me something real and deadly.  


That set-up fake 'raid' on Donald Trumps home - where the agents had a grand old time going through Melania's clothing and wardrobe... 

A lot of the main media outlets are NOT being honest in that fact that documents are always removed by former Presidents.  On top that - President Trumps lawyers have been working with them to give them whatever documents they've asked for.  It wasn't a big deal and as they requested certain documents, they've been given them.  Suddenly they pull this fake 'raid'.

But... what about the 30 million... *(yes million) pages of documents that Obama took when he left office?  He actually *refused* to give them back... and no one did anything about it.  Hmmm.

Something to ponder over your coffee.....

"What happened to the 30 million pages of documents taken from the White House to Chicago by Barack Hussein Obama? He refused to give them back!"

He continued: "This act was strongly at odds with NARA (National Archives and Records Administration). Will they be breaking into Obama's 'mansion' in Martha's Vineyard." 

"According to PBS: "The Obama administration in its final year in office spent a record $36.2 million on legal costs defending its refusal to turn over federal records under the Freedom of Information Act, according to an Associated Press analysis of new U.S. data that also showed poor performance in other categories measuring transparency in government."

"For a second consecutive year, the Obama administration set a record for times federal employees told citizens, journalists and others that despite searching they couldn’t find a single page of files that were requested.

"And it set records for outright denial of access to files, refusing to quickly consider requests described as especially newsworthy, and forcing people to pay for records who had asked the government to waive search and copy fees," they wrote.

In an opinion piece written for the New York Post by author James Bovard, he noted several other former presidents that have taken years, if not decades, to return documents and tapes covered under the Presidential Records Act.

The Presidential Records Act, which states that "The United States shall reserve and retain complete ownership, possession, and control of Presidential records," has come into the spotlight after FBI agents raided former President Donald Trump’s Mar-a-Lago residence under the suspicion that he has held onto documents covered under this act."
