Don't Be An Election Denier!

by Clayton Cramer in Clayton Cramer. at 13:52, Friday, 02 December

 Lookout Mountain County District Attorney:

On Wednesday November 16, 2022, William Chase, a 62-year-old man from Walker County was convicted by a Walker County jury of Forgery in the First Degree, Illegal Acts Regarding Election Documents, Unlawful Acts Regarding Elector's Vote, Repeat Voting in Same Election. The trial began Monday, November 14th and concluded with a guilty verdict on November 16th in front of the Honorable Chief Judge Kristina Graham. 

The evidence presented at trial showed that a Walker County resident’s absentee ballot for the January 2021 runoff election was sent by mistake to an old address, a PO Box in La Fayette, Georgia. When the resident’s ballot never arrived but her husbands did, the resident called the Elections Office in Walker County to inquire about her ballot. The Elections Office discovered that they had already accepted, but had not yet counted, an absentee ballot for the resident, and the ballot appeared to have resident’s signature on the Oath of Elector section. The resident went to the Elections Office to vi...

Forensics

by Pawpaw in PawPaw's House at 17:30, Friday, 02 December

 I caught a glimpse of this at Instapundit, then followed the link to Tam's place.  Clicked over to the Daily Beast about a cold case that suddenly had gotten warm again.

An unspent .40-caliber round discovered between the bodies of two young girls found dead on an Indiana hiking trail in 2017 led investigators to their alleged killer half a decade later, according to a probable cause affidavit unsealed Tuesday.

 A forensic examination showed the still-live bullet had been “cycled through” a Sig Sauer P226 owned by Richard Matthew Allen, who was charged last month with murder in the deaths of Delphi teens Libby German and Abby Williams.

I read through the article, and it didn't tell me how the girls had died, but a single .40SW cartridge was found between the bodies. Exami...

2. Some pretty prominent actors for its time (Elliott Gould, Karen Black, Hal Holbrook)) and some just getting started (Sam Waterston).

3. An almost technically plausible story (Mars and back with the Apollo-era technology would not have been nine months; the technicians at the fake Mars studio adding slow motion to the sequences where the astronauts fall under Martian gravity).

4. A really terrifying sequence where the courageous reporter (back when such existed) discovers his Mustang has been sabotaged: no brakes, engine full throttle, engine key off does nothing.

I had a few potatoes I needed to use, so when I got home I peeled and sliced them, then made an easy au gratin sauce to pour over them.  I put them in the oven about fifteen minutes before the pork chops.

Quote of the day—David Brooks

by Joe in The View From North Central Idaho at 09:00, Friday, 02 December

I think it would be something. I think would be good not only to head off shootings, but good to live in a society where we cared more intimately about each other. And I would be willing to give up certain privacies for that to happen. But for many Americans that would just be a massive cultural shift to regard our community and regard our common good in more frankly a European style. I think it would benefit our society in a whole range of areas.

 So, if you've been paying attention at all, you have heard of Sam Bankman-Fried, who had a crypto company and a side-hustle of hedge fund.  He was also the spawn of a couple of well-known Democrat donors, and he himself gave a lot of money to Democrats. This guy was the darling of the liberal elite, because he gave away a plot of money and espoused all the correct liberal memes.

Then one day it all came crashing down.  His company funds got tangled up in his side-hustle and his investors lost all their money.  Now, he's doing an apology tour, telling anyone who will listen that he never had the intent to defraud.  Never mind that his investors were defrauded, it was just an accident.

Kind of like the Alec Baldwin defense.

Sam is a well-connected Democrat.  Very well connected.  I would be extremely surprised if he ever sees the inside of a jail.  High profile Democrats don't go to jail.  Unlike us lesser mortals for whom the laws were written.

Iceland’s Domestic Guns: The Drífa and Others

by Ian McCollum in Forgotten Weapons at 08:27, Friday, 02 December

Today I have the very cool opportunity to bring you a history of Icelandic domestic firearms manufacturing, courtesy of the Veiðisafnið – the Hunting Museum of Iceland:

https://www.hunting.is/english/

The first documented record of a firearm on Iceland dates to 1482, appearing in a description of a legal dispute between two farmers. The first recording hunting is in 1615, when a polar bear was shot in Hjaltadal (polar bears are not native to Iceland, but occasionally float across on ice form Greenland).

Without any large mammals (reindeer were only introduced in the 1700s form Norway), there has historically been little call for rifles on Iceland. Instead, most of the guns were shotguns, useful for bird hunting. The first known professional gunsmith was Einar Bjarnason, of Skeftafelli in Öræfi. Some time...

Inflation and the Fed’s tightening cycle. The history is clear: whenever inflation has been above 5%, the Fed’s hikes in interest rates have always …

I recently had the high bid on 60 boxes (1,200 rounds) of NORINCO 223 Remington ammunition. This ammo used to be frequently imported into the USA; however, it was banned in the early 1990s (93 or 94 depending upon two different sources) by President William J. Clinton. Despite the fact that he banned all importation of Chinese ammunition and I think firearms too, Clinton extended most favored nation trading status to that country. 
 
Back to the ammo: One of the most frequent questions raised about this ammo is whether or not the projectiles (bullets) are steel core. I tried to find out by doing an online search and found several firearms forums in which there were threads that posed the same question. The thing was, the answers were not definitive and there thus was a lot of controversy as to whether or not the bullets are steel core. So, I decided to find out myself and did a video while doing the finding out. The video will answer that question - at lea...

Routine?

by TPOL Nathan in The Price of Liberty at 20:00, Thursday, 01 December

Every day, on the news, it seems we hear of another “mass shooting” (3 or more people shot and killed), perpetrated by another insane person or persons. And every day recently, we hear on the news of two or three people pleading guilty, found guilty, or sentenced to prison for some long period. And every day, we hear politicians and pundits and people (“ordinary people”) who blame it all on guns. Well, not all guns – first, they want the police (and maybe the military) and private guards of wealthy and powerful people to have guns. Second, some also blame it on racism, sexism, Western Civilization and, of course, capitalism.

Just as we daily hear of the poor non-standard humans who are abused for some of those same reasons and more: racism, sexism, transphobia, homophobia, Islamophobia, and so on. And back to the killing, all of those killers (“suspected” or otherwise) who survive their acts of aggression always have someone else or something else to blame for their murderous behavior. The only exception to these claims by the death-dealers seems to be some of those who kill unborn children: their reason for doing that (other ...

Off-body doesn’t mean you have to wear a funky fanny pack like Grandpa wears. Women who carry concealed firearms aren’t all wearing on-body holsters, nor do they want to. In fact, in a recent survey, conducted by one of the nation’s premiere training organizations for women – A Girl and A Gun Women’s Shooting League – 27.4% of the women who responded carry off-body.

Here are some of the main reasons women carry off-body:

  1. They cannot carry or draw from a holster on their bodies. Women might encounter a few “bumps in the road” while deciding how to carry a concealed firearm, too – such as creative curves, disabilities and pregnant bellies.
  2. They are wearing evening gowns or dresses that will not accommodate any type of holster other than one that fits between their legs. Awkward. You can buy concealed-carry clutches with wrist straps.
  3. For carrying in vehicles, they can set their designated bags or purses on the floors or seats next to them. No need to unholster their firearms and put them somewhere else (unless a state requires it). And also, it’s ...

by Borepatch in Borepatch at 16:28, Thursday, 01 December

Blues and Christmas, baby!


 

11/29/22 CBS News:

New York City Mayor Eric Adams announced an initiative that would give the city more leeway to involuntarily hospitalize severely mentally ill people on the city's subways and streets, even if they do not appear to pose an immediate danger to others.  

"My administration is determined to do more to assist people with mental illness, especially those with untreated psychotic disorders, posing a risk of harm to themselves, even if they are not an imminent threat to the public," Adams said Tuesday. "It is not acceptable f...

 One of you pointed me to MotoCabin.  They make fiberglass motorcycle shelters.  69" high, 54" wide, 123" long,  Big Bertha will fit with room to spare.  What I would need to change 

1. Remove the front wheel support rail.

2. Cut out a square in the bottom of base so that it does not run into the telescope.

3. Attach casters to the base plate.  

4. When pouring pad, include U-channels in the concrete so they do not rise above the concrete.  These need to be just wide enough for the casters to roll, but narrow to prevent my telescope ladder catching on them.  (You motorcyclists and bicyclists know what happens when you hit railroad tracks at an angle.)

The last part of the puzzle: to keep a weather, bug, and house-proof seal, the base of the MotoCabin needs to end up on the pad, not above it.  Is there a way to have casters rise or fall without lots of wrench work?  I suppose I could put a rubber seal along the bottom and go for a very small elevation above the concrete.  The seal would require regular replacement.

 I was in a Zoom meeting the other day with some folks I hadn't met before.  For myself, I, at the very least, put on a nice top and comb my hair even if I'm in sweatpants and keep the camera high enough to hide any cat that might jump in my lap.  

Since I'm remote, I figure it behooves me to look professional (as far as the people on the other side of the camera can tell).

I have never seen anything like I did that day.  A woman clearly at home, in a sweatshirt, hair uncombed, WALKING on a desk treadmill.  She didn't stop during the meeting.  So I had to watch her head bob up and down because she was WALKING during the whole meeting.  

Okay, not the whole meeting because when she was asked a question, she would stop (apparently not much for the multi-tasking).

Not sure why someone would do that, but dang....

Not Much Thursday

by Pawpaw in PawPaw's House at 14:57, Thursday, 01 December

 It's the first of December, and this month, like every other month, I took my don-driving buddy to do his banking, and his grocery shopping, and to run some errands.

Came home, made some lunch, and checked my email and the web. Nothing much happening today.  I am neither amused nor outraged.  If I were a younger man, I might be tempted to get into trouble, but whereas I have the knowledge, the wherewithal, and the time, I simply don't have the energy.

Maybe something interesting will happen tomorrow.

Authorized Infringers?

Jordan says the ghost gun rule “goes well beyond the authority granted to the agency in any applicable federal statutes,” and expands the legal definition of a firearm beyond what Congress intended. A prior letter from Jordan to ATF declared the rule “appears to be a deliberate attempt to usurp the authority of Congress,” and said it unconstitutionally infringes “on American citizens’ fundamental Second Amendment rights and privacy rights under the Fourth Amendment.” [More]

He’s right about the agency lacking authority. What I’ve yet to see is where Congress can legitimately claim it.

Quote of the day—Bob Barr

The gun-control shibboleth urged by the Left as the solution to every mass shooting incident, coupled with the government’s “run, hide, and fight” strategy for dealing with an active shooter, make as much sense as advocating duct tape and plastic sheeting as a way to thwart acts of terrorism.

Air Marshals not babysitters

by Midwest Chick in Non-Original Rants at 06:30, Thursday, 01 December

 Biden's master plan for the border is to take highly trained Air Marshals off of 99% of flights during the biggest air travel time of the year and put them on the border to take illegals to the hospitals, make them sandwiches, and act as babysitters.

But here's the kicker:

“The rank and file air marshals are going to refuse to deploy and risk termination,” said David Londo, president of the Air Marshal National Council, in a phone call with the Washington Examiner on Tuesday. “You’re almost going to have a mutiny of a federal agency, which is unheard of.”

...

Just this week, air marshals pulled from planes and sent to the border were "heating up sandwiches," driving immigrants in custody to the hospital and waiting inside for hours on hospital watch, and effectively babysitting adults who are already in confined spaces, Londo said.

“These highly skilled [air marshals] are being made to perform mainly non-law enforcement civilian humanitarian duties,” Londo...

I keep looking for alternative ways to have a water proof structure that will enclose a 26" square by 4' x 7' telescope that I can roll away to get a clear sky with minimal horizon obstruction and still allow the rolling telescope ladder to get close.


I played with the idea of four fiberglass walls sitting on casters in aluminum channels set into the concrete.  Take the top off and pick up and move side walls.  I can see spending a pile of money to have leaks.

Walls fold down but the rolling ladder goes over and damages the walls.

The only thing that seems to make sense is a building 4' tall inside x 2.5 ' deep and 7' long with doors that open wide enough on at least side to roll the structure away from the telescope.   It need not even be rolling in rails.  It could just roll on the concrete pad.  The height is to reduce sight line blockage for our neighbors; that is below the height of our sage.  Rolled away it is still below that sight line.

Search for floorless sheds.  They seem to be either 6' wide or 6' high or 2' deep.

Walker, Texas Changer

Senate candidate Herschel Walker is facing renewed allegations of carpetbagging, ahead of next week’s runoff election in Georgia, for claiming a special property tax break in Texas and making statements about living in the Lone Star State while campaigning to unseat Sen. Raphael Warnock, D-Ga. [More]

Between this, the baby mamas, and the vulnerability to the abortion charges, I’m wondering if the GOP and Trump were just so enamored by celebrity potential and exploitable race that they failed to do any basic vetting at all. Either that or Team Swamp knew and wanted this outcome.

This is ridiculous, and to be just finding out about it now is inexcusable. And pointing out how Democrats do it misses the point. Anyone who doesn’t realize they don’t have to play by the rules is negligently naive, and besides, “our side” is supposed to walk the talk.

Quote of the day—Chris Murphy

by Joe in The View From North Central Idaho at 09:00, Wednesday, 30 November

They’ve decided they’re going to essentially refuse to implement laws that are on the books. That is a growing problem in this country. And I think we’re going to have to have a conversation about that in the United States Senate. Do we want to continue to supply funding in law enforcement in counties that refuse to implement state and federal gun laws? Red flag laws are wildly popular.

Plenty of Reasons

by Pawpaw in PawPaw's House at 09:04, Wednesday, 30 November

 Early in November, the nation was gripped by the drama coming out of Moscow, ID, where four students were killed in their beds.  The nation wants answers, and the parents want closure, and I understand all that.

Megan Fox looks at four reasons why the police have not publicly named a suspect or made an arrest.  

1) The crime scene is amazingly complex.  I have spent hours doing crime scene for a single murder in a fairly pristine crime scene.  I cannot imagine what a four-murder scene would be like to work.

2) Small town police departments don't often see this type of crime.  This isn't a criticism of the police in Moscow, but the simple fact is that they don't work this type of crime very often.  They know the theory, but putting it into practice takes experience.  They want to get it right, so they called in help, from the Idaho State Police and the FBI.  This is common practice.

3) Thanksgiving happened.  Moscow is a small, college town....

The Federal government is putting children in the hands of child traffickers, pimps, and abusers.  And our tax dollars are paying for it.

“Our sponsors typically are not citizens. They’re not permanent residents. They don’t have a legal presence,” she said.

“The sponsor can hold up an ‘Order of Deportation’ to a [migrant] child and say, ‘This is your Order of Deportation. If you do not do what I say, when I say, I’m going to call ICE on you myself.’ We are paying to put children in the hands of criminals.”

A Veritas journalist spoke to a migrant female minor on one of these occasions, who revealed that she had been put through sexual abuse by her sponsor.

Capitol Police, FBI uncover new potential deadly risk to female officers from body armor

The U.S. Capitol Police alerted its rank-and-file this month that FBI lab testing of long-approved body armor has uncovered a previously unknown flaw that can subject female officers to deadly ricochets from bullets.

The advisory, obtained by Just the News, revealed that the FBI first detected the problem, known as the “skip effect,” when it “departed from legacy testing protocols in a desire to test body armor in an ‘as worn’ condition, and to account for various body shapes and sizes.”

“The testing revealed that when a projectile strikes the female body armor at an extreme angle on the upper chest area, the projectile does not penetrate the body armor, but rather, skips or deflects off the surface of the armor into the neck region,” the advisory explained. “Because of the angle at which female body armor lays when worn, projectiles may skip off the top center of the f...
