Monday, Again, Motes

This will be important: If a person is arrested and held for the violation of a law in place, they cannot be released just because the president says so. It requires a court order. Same goes for an order to arrest someone for something not “a law”. From the “Peace Officers Code Of Ethics; ”We have a moral, ethical and professional responsibility to respectfully refuse to obey orders to enforce unconstitutional laws. … We, as police officers, cannot legally, morally or ethically arrest someone in an effort to enforce an unconstitutional law.”

Ashli Babbitt, Remember her name: On Monday, federal agents tracked down and arrested 26-year-old insurrectionist Brian Gundersen for participating in the January 6 riots in the Capitol. The fbi identified him through the letterman’s jacket he wore while invading the federal building. They have not identified Ashli Babbitts killer, and the incident was captured on video.

Their hypocrisy knows no limits: WH Press Sec. Psaki claims it’s not ‘fair’ to say Biden called Trump’s COVID travel ban ‘xenophobic’, even if that is the exact word Uncle Joe used.

She confidently gives audiences the full benefit of her ignorance: CNN’s Chris Cuomo soft-balled Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez and asked why she didn’t attend Biden’s inauguration.  Her reason, she doesn’t yet feel safe around “other Members of Congress.”  After all, people have guns there, which is just unacceptable in the District of Columbia According to AOC, guns are not allowed in the District of Columbia.”. A shocking revelation to the people who legally own guns there.  Does the case “District of Columbia -v- Heller” ring any bells? Oh, that’s right, she was an economics major, not law. AOC feels so secure in her ignorance that she lectures the public for not subscribing to the falsehoods that she holds as her deepest beliefs. And Cuomo, you’ll notice, couldn’t be bothered to correct her.

Just asking: How long is an “Emergency Proclamation” good? According to Hawaii statutes, 60 days. Now, do those run concurrently, or consecutively? Unknown. If consecutively, and there have been 17 EP’s, that means they go to sometime in 2023. Fortunately, we get to elect someone other than Ige in 2022.

Sad News: Sorry to hear that Kris Kristofferson has had to “retire” from music. This is due to “Lyme’s Disease” that he was infected with many tears ago. I met Kris many years ago doing some security work. A long time Maui residence I used to run into him at the Hilo airport and he always had a good word, even if he didn’t exactly remember me. He is often in my weekend play list. Remind me to tell you about “The Silver Tongued Devil”, Paia, and me.

I am as swift as a gazelle….an old one…. with arthritis…. run over by a Land Rover….. 8 days ago.
