    He traded blue and white for jailhouse khaki. New York Giants cornerback DeAndre Baker turned himself in to Florida authorities Saturday to face four counts of armed robbery with a firearm and four counts of aggravated assault, police said. The 22-year-old, second-year defensive back surrendered to the Miramar Police Department at around 9:30 a.m., a spokeswoman said. Baker, Seattle Seahawks cornerback Quinton Dunbar and two others are accused of ripping off $12,800, pricey Swiss watches - including a $18k Rolex, $25k Hubolt, and a $17,500 Audemars Piguet - along with other valuables at a Miramar house party Wednesday night.

    The Federalist ^ | 15 May A.D. 2020 | Carol McKinley
    On March 23, Massachusetts Gov. Charles Baker declared a public health emergency relating to COVID-19. He created a list of businesses and organizations he believes provide “essential services” and ordered all non-essential businesses to cease in-person operations. Constitutional freedoms derived from the Bill of Rights are not among the list of essential services, including the freedom to worship according to our consciences. In Massachusetts, I can stand in a line of 200 people at a liquor store to buy a bottle of Maker’s Mark, but I am not afforded the same reasonable accommodations in the same-sized building across the street...

    Gov. Charlie Baker laid out a four-phased plan to restart the state’s shattered economy on Monday but stopped short of saying which industries will get the green light first. Baker said the “goal” is to begin reopening some businesses on May 18 “starting with the businesses with the least face-to-face contact” and gradually opening up from there. The final phase will be achieving what Baker called a “new normal.” “We want to whip this virus into the rearview mirror but none of that is going to happen overnight,” Baker said during a coronavirus briefing at the State House on Monday.
  • Cape Cod coronavirus field hospital closes without ever seeing a patient with COVID-19

    The field hospital constructed in the gymnasium at Joint Base Cape Cod in Bourne closed Tuesday without hosting a single patient with the coronavirus, according to the Cape Cod Times. Work to build the temporary hospital with 94 beds began at the beginning of April with anticipation of a surge along the Cape. Fortunately, it never arrived. “We never got into our surge numbers,” president and CEO of Cape Cod Healthcare Michael Lauf told the newspaper. The facility was open for about two weeks. The health care provider closed the hospital after discussions with Gov. Charlie Baker, the report said.
  • Massachusetts must allow gun stores to reopen despite pandemic, judge rules

    Reuters ^ | May 7, 2020 | Nate Raymond
    A federal judge on Thursday ordered Massachusetts authorities to allow gun shops to reopen after the governor deemed them non-essential businesses that needed to close to slow the spread of the novel coronavirus. U.S. District Judge Douglas Woodlock in Boston ruled that the restrictions ordered by Republican Governor Charlie Baker in response to the pandemic imposed an “improper burden” on the constitutional rights of citizens seeking to possess firearms. Baker imposed the restrictions through executive orders issued beginning in mid-March that, like those adopted in other states, forced the closure of an array of brick-and-mortar businesses in response to the...
  • Coronavirus pandemic prompts Gov. Charlie Baker (RINO) to order Massachusetts residents wear masks in public

    Gov. Charlie Baker signed an executive order Friday requiring residents to wear masks in public, including people who take public transit and grocery shopping. “We view this as common sense,” said Baker, a Republican. The executive order takes effect on May 6. Masks and face coverings are mandatory in grocery stores, pharmacies and other retail shops, as well as on public transportation. The order does not apply to children under the age of 2 and people with medical conditions who would be negatively affected by the requirement. ... People who are found violating the order could get a $300 fine....

    A Colorado baker who fought and won a years-long legal battle after refusing to make a wedding cake for a gay couple has been slapped with a similar lawsuit, this time for refusing to bake a transgender cake. The story: In 2018, the U.S. Supreme Court cleared Jack Phillips, a devout Christian who owns Masterpiece Cakeshop in Lakewood, Colorado, of any wrongdoing after a same-sex couple sued him for denying them a wedding cake as it went against his religious precepts. Now, Phillis is facing a similar lawsuit for refusing to bake a trans-themed cake in 2017. Autumn Scardina, the...

    A politician in Northern Ireland has pointed out that the new law legalizing same-sex “marriage” in the region will not allow civil registrars, hoteliers, florists, and wedding photographers to refuse their services for homosexual “weddings.” The Northern Ireland (Executive Formation etc) Act 2019, the same piece of legislation that introduced new abortion laws into the region, has also legalized same-sex “marriage,” effective from January 13 of this year. Same-sex “marriage” has been legal in the rest of the U.K. since 2013, but until last month had not been imposed on Northern Ireland. On January 20 the Northern Ireland Office (NIO),...

    Steuben County DA Brooks Baker is apologizing after the Chemung County 911 released audio of a phone call where Baker is heard berating and cursing at a dispatcher. Baker called 911 after picking up a dog off I-86 and was looking to connect with Animal Control. After what Baker calls a “tense phone call” between Baker’s wife and a male dispatcher, Baker spoke with a female dispatcher in the audio released on Facebook. While discussing with the dispatcher where he can hand off the dog, Baker became agitated and cursed at the dispatcher four times in a two minute phone...

This week’s shocking 7-hour testimony in front of the state Joint Committee on Transportation has blown the lid off RMVgate. After hearing from multiple senior RMV officials and Transportation Secretary Stephanie Pollack, one conclusion is clear: The RMV has blood on its hands.

    Lakewood baker Jack Phillips is again facing legal action for declining to bake a cake for an LGBTQ customer. There’s just one big difference this time: the state of Colorado isn’t involved. Attorneys for Autumn Scardina, a transgender woman, filed a complaint against Phillips in state court Wednesday. In 2017, Scardina ordered a cake from Phillips to celebrate her birthday and gender transition. Phillips declined, citing his Christian beliefs and Scardina filed a complaint with Colorado’s Civil Rights Commission. In March, Attorney General Phil Weiser dropped the case filed on Scardina’s behalf. In exchange, Phillip’s attorneys agreed to end their...

    Former top FBI lawyer James Baker offered a robust defense Friday of the bureau’s investigation into President Trump and his 2016 campaign, taking aim at Trump’s allegation that the inquiry was tantamount to a coup and describing how he sought to ensure agents’ work was on solid legal footing. “There was no attempted coup,” Baker said bluntly. “There was no way in hell that I was going to allow some coup or coup attempt to take place on my watch.” The comments, which came at a taping of the Lawfare podcast in front of a live audience at the Brookings...

    The news is out that then-FBI director James Comey did indeed have some credible prosecutors for Hillary Clinton's mishandling of classified documents during her stint as secretary of state, passing around some of the U.S. government's most secret documents on an illegal private account attached to a server in some guy's bathroom. "No reasonable prosecutor" would take the case, Comey intoned, who then let the former secretary of state and then-presidential candidate off the hook. Actually, there was one, at least one, and he was sitting right next to Comey: none other than FBI general counsel James Baker, who admitted...

    Republican Gov. Charlie Baker is the man that moderate Democrats and independents just love. Because, to paraphrase the Stealers Wheel hit song, there were clowns to the left of him, jokers to the right, while Baker was stuck in the middle with you. No political extremism for him, either from the right or the left. He is Mr. Middle Ground.
